The Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston at Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station held a ribbon cutting ceremony June 21, unveiling a newly completed housing unit, enclosed weight room and maintenance building as part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure expansion. The new 24,000 square foot housing unit expands the Brig's capacity by accommodating 80 additional prisoners. The housing unit includes prisoner sleeping quarters, showers, toilets and prisoner day rooms. Additional buildings include a 1,300 square-foot prisoner multi-purpose room for weight and gym equipment and a new 7,500 square foot maintenance shop to provide rehabilitative training for prisoners. The original Brig housed up to 400 prisoners and was built in 1989. The new facilities brings the total number of housing units at NAVCONBRIG Charleston to five, making it a 480-bed facility and further expanding the military correctional mission; the Brig serves as the Joint Regional Correctional Facility Southeast. A ground-breaking ceremony for the new facility was held April 23, 2010. The new buildings were completed on time and at a cost of

$8.1 million. The project provided numerous local jobs. The new facility includes environmentally friendly features and was constructed in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design guidelines. The HVAC and electrical system was designed for LEED efficiency and sustainability. In addition, LEED-required recycling practices were followed during construction, achieving an 81 percent rate of recycle. These "green" initiatives will reduce operational and maintenance costs. NAVCONBRIG Charleston houses prisoners from all branches of the military sentenced up to

five years; longer sentences may be allowed on a case-by-case basis. The Brig provides extensive prisoner programs, including rehabilitative treatment, substance abuse treatment, counseling, education and training (academic, vocational, military, physical) and productive work. NAVCONBRIG Charleston work programs support military and federal agencies to provide productive, cost-effective work, which also is used as a skill-training process. Work programs include carpentry and furniture making and repair, auto maintenance and repair, metal works and welding, sign making, upholstery, service dog training and culinary arts.

Commentary by Gen. Raymond E. Johns Jr. Air Mobility Command commander SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – The 4th of July is a day for all of us to celebrate what we cherish and hold so dear as Americans ... it's been this way for 235 years. What our forefathers fought and worked so hard for you carry on today, magnificently. We are as busy as ever and no matter what's asked, you rise to the challenge ... to answer the call of others so they can prevail. Our Airmen have a rich history supporting those in need, making a difference around the globe, and protecting the freedom we enjoy. In March, when our nation called on us to support operations in Libya, many of you, active, guard, reserve, answered that call in a matter of hours saying good bye to your families instead of good night, without any hesitation. It truly makes us all proud to know we have such

Joint focus; better for national defense Commentary by Brig. Gen. Bill Bender Air Force Expeditionary Center commander Six months into a realignment which brought Air Mobility Command's joint bases and Base Re-Alignment and Closure-affected bases under the umbrella of the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center, I'm happy to say we're seeing the positive effects of joint basing and working through the growing pains together by building a culture of joint training and support. I want to thank each of you at these unique installations for being the leaders of the Air Force's continued efforts to be 'all in.' In January, AMC completed a restructuring that allows 18th Air Force to focus almost exclusively on worldwide mobility flying operations and gives the Expeditionary Center added responsibility for focusing on evolving AMC mission sets. These include expeditionary combat support training and installation support missions unique to three Joint Bases within the command, as well as at two AMC bases where missions are evolving as a result of previous BRAC decisions. Now, those of us living and training on AMC's joint installations and at AMC's most remote installation are already beginning to reap the benefits of thinking in terms of jointness and flexibility. One of those benefits is the ability to rapidly and effectively integrate into joint environments when we deploy or when we are

worth repeating

Joint Base Airmen are still Airmen Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jeffrey Cui 455th Air Expeditionary Wing command chief Airmen at Air Mobility Command's three Joint Bases and at the two AMC bases where missions are evolving as a result of previous Base Realignment and Closure decisions are immersed in joint training and operations every day. This is a key part of ensuring America's military remains the most efficient and most feared capability in the world. But equally important, we cannot ever forget the Airman culture as we continue to integrate with our joint partners. Joint basing and joint service assures Department of Defense leadership servicemembers of every branch are ready and able to bring their unique skills and interoperability to the fight quicker and better than ever. As Airmen, we are focused on airpower, and in AMC, we narrow that focus to supporting global air mobility wherever and whenever combatant commanders require. Every Airman, regardless of their Air Force Specialty Code knows their job supports air operations going on somewhere in the world at any given moment. The Air Force has been joint since long before 'all in' became the Chief of Staff's direc-

Weekly Safety Tip While driving and texting, drivers don't detect hazards, respond to hazards more slowly and are exposed to risk for longer periods. They can't keep a constant distance behind the car in front of them and are much more likely to weave around in their lane and veer out of their lane much more often.

Fatherhood: It’s always going to be Job #1 By Lt. Col. Richard Sanders 628th Civil Engineer Squadron commander My most important job is raising my daughters. While my faith in God and relationship with my wife are more important, I consider neither of those a job, but rather relationships. While it's true I have a relationship with my daughters, it's my duty to raise them to have good morals and character, to contribute to our society, and I hope, to love God. Wow, I could throw in my desire to foster world peace while I'm at it, but let's be realistic. Being a good dad is probably one of the toughest jobs out there (after being a good mom, of course). President Obama calls it one of his hardest jobs, but most rewarding. I second that! The importance of being a good dad is indisputable; even our Commander-in-Chief has very publicly stressed its importance at various times and has initiated his Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative at On this web site are great resources to help dads be better dads. I particularly like the "Tips and Activities" at the "For Dads" tab for ideas to spend time with your kids. Additionally, President Obama has declared this the year of 'Strong Fathers, Strong Families,' as part of his Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative, as an effort to partner with organizations and companies from around the nation to create simple opportunities for dads and kids to connect.

Being a good dad is, of course, subjective, but I'd offer that there's one main "ingredient" necessary for a successful fatherhood recipe: time. There is no short cut to spending time with your kids. They deserve it and need it. The president similarly lists spending time with your kids as most important and elaborates that fathers need to spend quality time with their kids by being both physically and mentally present with them. The president offers a couple more things that kids need most: structure and our unconditional love. They need structure to provide boundaries and the values of self-discipline, self-control, selflessness and responsibility. And unconditional love provides the cornerstone for a child's self-esteem. It tells the child "I believe in you, I'm here for you and I love you no matter what." I imagine that gets harder as girls hit their teens ... I'll find out soon enough. Being a good dad in the military can be even harder ... frequent and long deployments prevent us from spending the time we'd like to with our kids and the time they need. Technology has, for many deployers, made keeping in touch with kids easier, but it's no substitute for being there with them. I recently returned from a deployment and was thrilled to have the two weeks to get re-acquainted with my girls. About a month prior to my return, I encouraged each of them to make a list of things they wanted to do with me when I was home during those two weeks. It gave all of us something to look forward to. I also encourage dads to go

on regular date nights with their kids - one on one time with minimal distractions (though "distractions" at Chuck E. Cheese are kind of the point for my youngest; I'm thankful my oldest favors Thai food). Dads, do not be discouraged by your failings. No one is the perfect father. But it's never too late to be a better dad, whether your kids are toddlers or teens. Spend quality time with them. Set and enforce standards and structure. And love them unconditionally. Here are some other great resources to help dads be better dads: is the website for the National Fatherhood Initiative, founded in 1994, "to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with involved, responsible and committed fathers." It has a huge assortment of resources for fathers - I highly encourage dads to check it out. Another site, dad/index.shtm, looks at those all-too-familiar sayings our dads used to say and applies them towards lessons we should teach our older kids about consumer and identity protection. And for me, a couple key verses from the Bible: "Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it." - Proverbs 22:6 "Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord." - Ephesians 6:4

NAVCONBRIG receives Dept. of Labor approval Courtesy of Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston Public Affairs

The Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston, in partnership with Carolina Canines for Service, announced the approval of the service dog training program as a United States Department of Labor Apprentice Program for Service Dog Technicians June 16. The successful approval of the Apprenticeship Program for Service Dog Technicians provides a level of skill based on competency for the prisoners enrolled in the program. Upon successful completion of the competency, the prisoners receive a U.S. Department of Labor Journeyman Certificate. "This is a major step for the service dog training industry," said Rick Hairston, president and chief executive officer of Carolina Canines for Service. "This will have long

term effects on shaping the industry of service dog providers for our veterans, ensuring the quality of the dogs trained." Cmdr. Raymond Drake, NAVCONBRIG Charleston commanding officer said, "The approval of the service dog training program as a United States Department of Labor Apprentice Program is another major success for this program and ensures continued high standards while providing prisoners valuable, documented, nationally recognized job skill training that will greatly benefit them upon release." NAVCONBRIG Charleston houses prisoners from all branches of the military sentenced up to five years; longer sentences on a case-by-case basis. The brig provides extensive prisoner programs, including rehabilitative treatment, substance abuse treatment, counseling, education and academic, vocational and physical training. NAVCONBRIG Charleston work programs support military and federal agencies to provide productive, cost-effec-

tive work which is also used as a skill-training process. Work programs include carpentry, furniture making and repair, auto maintenance and repair, metal working and welding, sign making, upholstery, service dog canine training and culinary arts. Carolina Canines for Service is a nonprofit health and human services organization that trains service dogs for people with disabilities. In 2008, CCFS launched a national program, Carolina Canines for Veterans, to train rescue dogs from local shelters to assist wounded veterans. Operating entirely on private donations, CCFS instructs prisoners to raise and train each service dog. A Carolina Canines service dog is a constant companion that can perform more than 70 tasks for the wounded veteran, including retrieving and carrying objects, opening doors, helping with stress and balance difficulties as well as providing a bridge back to society.

2011 Navy financial health poll results Courtesy of Navy Personnel Research, Studies and Technology Naval Operations staff sponsored the 2011 Financial Health Quick Poll to reassess possible financial stressors for Navy personnel due to the recent economic downturn and compare 2011 results with those from the May 2008 and January 2009 Financial Health Quick Polls. Similar to previous polls, the main areas of focus were financial condition, residence and Permanent Change of Station moves. A few spouse employment questions were also included. A stratified, random sample of Navy personnel was selected, with over-sampling by regions to ensure regional representation. The poll was administered to a sample of 12,535 active duty Navy personnel over the Internet. More than 3,100, or 28 percent, completed the poll. The margins of error were ± three percent or less for enlisted and ± four percent or less for officers. Findings Key financial indicators remain very positive and the good financial results found on prior assessments (2008 and 2009) were maintained. Eighty-two percent of officers and 56 percent of enlisted described their financial situation as excellent or good. Most continue to describe their financial condition as very comfortable or able to make ends meet. Similarly, 94 percent of officers and 78 percent of enlisted were able to meet their financial obligations in 2011 compared to 79 percent of officers and 42 percent of enlisted in 2000. While 11 percent of officers and 30 percent of enlisted reported that they occasionally have some difficulty, only two percent of officers and nine percent of enlisted say they are barely keeping their heads above water. A larger percentage of Navy personnel (58 percent officers, 62 percent enlisted) contribute to the Thrift Savings Plan than other Department of Defense services (for example 49 percent

Army officers, 37 percent Army enlisted). Of the 55 percent enlisted personnel provided solutions to reduce financial stress, 22 percent requested assistance with developing a debt plan as a solution, even though this service is already available. As found on other surveys, spouse employment opportunities are a concern: 56 percent of officers and 46 percent of enlisted reported their spouse did not use the spouse preference policy to gain employment. Thirty percent of officers and 39 percent of enlisted were not aware of the spouse preference policy. Of the approximately 50 percent of officers and enlisted who provided solutions to reduce financial stress, 26 percent selected spouse employment opportunities as a solution to financial stress. Housing-related concerns (e.g., increases in utilities, insurance and rent) continue to be the top financial problems experienced by officers and enlisted in the past year. Fifty-nine percent of officers and 26 percent of enlisted currently own one or more homes. A majority have fixed rate loans. Ten percent of officers have adjustable rate loans on their primary residence, declining from a high of 27 percent in 2008. Results indicate fewer officers own their home as more are renting. A larger percentage of officers reported renting housing off base at their current duty station in 2011 (47 percent) than in 2008 (38 percent) and 2009 (36 percent). Similarly, fewer officers reported owning a home at their current duty station in 2011 (36 percent) than on previous polls (43 percent in 2008 and 46 percent in 2009). Twenty-two percent of officers reported an inability to sell their home at either their current or previous duty station as a financial problem in the past year, up slightly from 19 percent in 2009.

Outstanding Airmen, civilians participate in C-17 incentive flight Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Jared Trimarchi Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs Thirty two Airmen and two civilians from the 437th Airlift Wing and the 628th Air Base Wing participated in a quarterly incentive flight June 15 flying from Joint Base Charleston - Air Base to Joint Base Charleston - Northfield approximately 80 miles away. Participants were chosen based on their outstanding job performance, said 1st Lt. Adam Ferek, 15th Airlift Squadron pilot and officer in charge of personnel for the flight. "The incentive flight was a way for the base to show its appreciation for all of the hard work and dedication displayed by the Airmen and civilians who work to make our missions successful," he said. "Without them, JB CHS would not be able to meet the everyday demands of our operations." The flight was a training mission for two pilots from the 15th Airlift Squadron. Participants received an early morning safety briefing by Lieutenant Ferek. Although many of the Airmen who participated in the incentive flight maintain C-17s or load cargo, most of them had never flown on one. Airman 1st Class Michael Jones, an aerospace ground equipment journeyman from the 437th Maintenance Squadron, said he's only seen the inside of a C-17 once. "The Air Expo 2011 was my first time

inside a C-17, but this was my first time as a passenger," he said. Two of the youngest Airmen on the flight got to experience taking off from the view of a pilot. "It was the best thing I have done so far while in the Air Force," said Airman 1st Class Cameron Corricelli, an air transportation journeyman from the 437th Aerial Port Squadron. "It was simply amazing." Approximately 20 minutes after takeoff, the C-17 began its descent to JB CHS Northfield. While at Northfield, the participants deplaned and got to experience watching C-17s take off and land from the inside of an air control tower. On the journey back to JB CHS - Air Base, the participants were showing off their pictures they had taken of the day's experience. "Overall everything went really well," Lieutenant Ferek said. "The weather was beautiful, there was no turbulence and everyone had a great time. Incentive flights give people a chance to step away from the day-today operations and see first-hand what other Airmen do every day to support our mission." Airman 1st Class Maechelle Shuler, from the 628 ABW legal office, was one of the Airmen who got to watch the landing from the cockpit. "This is my first time flying inside of a C17 and I will never forget this moment," she said. "I hope my career in the Air Force will one day lead me to flying everyday."

Airman 1st Class Maechelle Shuler, from the 628th Air Base Wing legal office, looks out the window of a C-17's cockpit during landing June 15 at Joint Base Charleston - Northfield. During the flight training mission, 32 Airmen and two civilians from the 437th Airlift Wing and the 628 ABW participated in a quarterly C-17 incentive flight.

We L♥VE Our Military!

Courtesy of 628th Air Base Wing Safety Office Nearly every year, the military ranks suffer losses due to drowning. Mishap locations vary from rivers and lakes to oceans and pools; some of the drowning victims are sober while others are impaired by alcohol. The bottom line is that tragic accidents happen quickly and the most common reason for water mishaps is a lack of water safety knowledge. A recent American Red Cross survey shows that almost half the adults surveyed about water safety say they've had an experience where they nearly drowned and one in four has known someone who has drowned. While more than 90 percent of families with young children will be in the water at some point this summer, almost half (48 percent) plan to swim where there is no lifeguard. With so many people planning to be in, on or near the water, it is important to follow the basics of water safety; maintain constant supervision of children and get trained. The American Red Cross recommends the following safety tips:

- Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards. - Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. - Ensure everyone in the family learns to swim well. Enroll in swimming instruction courses. - Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child's life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water. - Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guardapproved life jackets around water but do not rely on life jackets alone. - Swim with a wingman or shipmate every time. Even experienced swimmers have drowned. If you swim with someone, they will be able to help you out. - Know your limits and don't overextend yourself. Take breaks and don't get fatigued far from shore. - Swim in safe areas. A lifeguard can make the difference between life and death. - Alcohol impairs. Please don't drink and swim.

628th Safety Office focuses on traffic safety By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Jennifer Hudson Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs Sailors and civilians were able to learn about the harsh realities and dangers of driving while impaired or without their seatbelts fastened through an interactive and educational traffic safety event hosted by the 628th Air Base Wing Safety Office at the Naval Exchange, June 15. The simulators were also available at the JB CHS - Air Base Exchange June 16. The events included a drunk-driving simulation course that allowed Sailors to gain a perspective of driving while impaired and a South Carolina Highway Patrol roll-over demonstration which showed the importance of wearing seatbelts. Members of the JB CHS Airmen Against Drunk Driving Association were also present and provided educational materials to participants. "We are always looking for new ways to raise awareness of traffic safety throughout the community rather than just pushing out training pamphlets and holding lectures," said Glenda Middleton, 628 ABW Safety Office specialist. "Hosting events such as this with fun, interactive scenarios really brings home the dangers of drunk driving or not wearing a seatbelt and hopefully has an impact on the decisions people make." According to S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Corporal Bob Beres, there have already been 352 deaths on S.C. roadways since January 2011, of which 140 were not wearing their seatbelts. "You are seven times more likely to die in a collision not being buckled up," he said. "The rollover simulator is basically the cab of a Chevy S-10 on a skewer. There are two dummies in it: a child in the passenger seat and an adult dummy in the driver seat and neither are restrained. The cab rotates at 12 to 15 mph and 50 percent of the time, the dummies come out on the left and the other 50 percent of the time they are ejected out to the right. What is important to note is that the dummies are ejected from the vehicle 100 percent of the time." The test dummies' ejection drove home the importance

of seat belts, while the more daring participants tried the drunken driving simulator which showed the disturbing effects of driving while impaired. Participants wore impaired-vision goggles as they drove a golf cart through a controlled course at the Navy Exchange parking lot. The course was marked with traffic cones, representing people. The goggles simulated the visual impairment of a blood alcohol level of 0.08, the legal limit. "Too often we think if we stay under the legal U.S. Navy photo/Machinist's Mate 3rd Class Brannon Deugan limit we are not going to South Carolina Highway Patrol Lance Corporal Bob Beres demonstrates the roll-over crash have any problems.

"When you drive the cart you realize you reallittle impaired is still impaired. The consequences of hitly don't have your full capabilities." "The course was hard. I knocked down four cones ting and killing someone are just not worth it," said Ms. which would be equivalent to hitting four people," said Middleton.

Air Force and Navy News Mobility teams gearing up for Air Mobility Rodeo 2011 SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – Air Mobility Rodeo 2011, sponsored by Air Mobility Command officials, is set to take place July 24 to 29 at McChord Field on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Rodeo is a readiness competition that "focuses on improving our worldwide air mobility forces' professional core abilities," AMC officials said. More than 150 teams and 3,000 people from the Air Force and Air Force Reserve, as well as allied nations, are expected to participate. Rodeo began in October 1956, history shows. At that time, officials from 13 troop carrier wings from Continental Air Command, predecessor to Air Force Reserve Command, sent crews to participate in a "Reserve Troop Carrier Rodeo" at Bakalar Air Force Base, Ind. The first airdrop competition for units of the active-duty force occurred in April 1962, when Military Air Transport Service officials held a MATS-

wide Rodeo at Scott AFB. The 1962 Rodeo competition was a combat skills competition designed to develop and improve techniques and procedures while enhancing air mobility operations and promoting esprit de corps. In 1979, Rodeo was expanded to include international air mobility partners. "Rodeo tests the flight and ground skills of aircrews as well as the related skills of special tactics, security forces, aerial port operations, aeromedical evacuation and maintenance team members," the competition fact sheet states. "It also provides valuable joint and combined training for all participants." The last Rodeo competition took place in July 2009 at McChord AFB.

Greenert recommended for CNO WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced June 16 he has recommended Adm. Jonathan Greenert, vice chief of naval operations, to succeed the retiring Adm. Gary Roughead as the next chief of naval operations.

This week in Air Force history Courtesy of Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs June 19, 1944 - American pilots shot down 476 Japanese aircraft in a battle known as "The Marianas Turkey Shoot". The U.S. lost 130 planes. Navy submarines and aircraft also sank three Japanese carriers. Afterwards, Japanese naval airpower was not a serious threat to U.S. forces in the Pacific. June 20, 1980 - Strategic Air Command conducted an unannounced exercise called Global Shield II at 44 bases lasting through June 29. It involved more than 100,000 people and 437 aircraft flying 1,035 sorties. June 21, 1982 - Strategic Air Command's tanker operations accomplished another milestone when a KC10A transferred a record 67,400 pounds

June 25, 1996 - Terrorists bombed the Khobar Towers near King Abdul-Aziz Air Base in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 Air Force people and injuring some 300 other Americans.

Mr. Gates said he made the recommendation to President Barack Obama based on Admiral Greenert's solid portfolio that includes both significant personnel programs and budget responsibilities. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Admiral Greenert is "an exceptional officer, and if confirmed, will be, I believe, an exceptional CNO." "He has wonderful operational experience, fleet experience, he's terrific with people and he has extensive experience in the money world, which is now facing all of us," Admiral Mullen said. "So I strongly concur with the secretary's recommendation." Mr. Gates praised Admiral Roughead, who will retire this fall, for four decades of service and leadership at the helm of the Navy for the past four years. "I have very much enjoyed working with Gary and have greatly valued his counsel and wisdom on both Navy issues and broader strategic issues," Mr. Gates said. Upon being notified of the news, Admiral Roughead offered his congratulations and endorsement. "I could not be more pleased that Admiral Greenert has been nominated to be the 30th Chief of Naval Operations. I have known Jon and his family well for years and I have the utmost respect for him as a leader and a naval officer."

In a statement released after the announcement Admiral Greenert said "I am honored and humbled by the Secretary's recommendation and look forward to working with Congress during the confirmation process." Admiral Greenert's career as a submariner includes assignments aboard USS Flying Fish, USS Tautog, Submarine NR-1 and USS Michigan and as commander of USS Honolulu. He also served as commander of Submarine Squadron 11, U.S. Naval Forces Mariana, U.S. 7th Fleet in the Pacific and U.S. Fleet Forces Command before he became the vice CNO.
