Keeping Low Country Warriors On Course This is the final edition of the Shoreline base newspaper. There have been many different base papers here at Naval Weapons Station Charleston throughout the years, and the Shoreline is just the latest and sadly, last version of them. To the average reader it is just another base paper, but for those of us that work in the realm of military public affairs, this has been a special newspaper. As the last editor of this paper, I would like to take a few moments to share my thoughts about this publication, and why I think it has been so important for so many people over the years. My first duty station in 1988 was onboard USS Bunker Hill (CG 52) which was the first Aegis cruiser equipped with the Vertical Launch System and the first ship of its kind to be forward deployed. Our homeport was Yokosuka, Japan. At that time, the Navy was taking their enlisted Journalists off of smaller ships. So, I was sent to the Public Affairs office at Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka, where I worked on their base paper, the Seahawk. After a few other duty stations, to include a tour in D.C., and a year on Diego Garcia, I found myself in Naples, Italy, working on their base paper, the Panorama. Fast forward to 2010, and here I am, retired from active duty and working as the editor for the Shoreline. For those of you that have been stationed overseas, you know what its like to be part of a small community that works together for the common good. The overseas base newspaper is the hometown newspaper. It’s where you find out about people’s achievements, what the kids are doing in school, what movie is playing at the theater. You learn about the different commands, the festivals, the day trips, local customs and the good places to eat. It’s a touch of home in a foreign land. Now take a look at the papers around the major bases here in the states. They are filled almost entirely of command information and Navy wire service stories. You rarely see pictures of the children playing soccer or ombudsmen getting together for luncheons. You don’t see the stories about day care activities and swimming pools and ski trips. The larger papers are all Navy all the time. And that my friends is the difference. Naval Weapons Station Charleston has been a special place for hundreds of

thousands of people over the years. It’s that Lowcountry Southern hospitality that welcomes us with open arms and makes us reluctant to leave when our tours are over. It’s our little hometown away for our true hometowns. Of all the places I’ve been stationed through the years, this base, more than any other, gives me the sense of community that until coming here, I had only found overseas. Perhaps I’m just being sentimental because we are ending an era. But in the short time that I have been the editor of this newspaper, I have had the pleasure to meet and work with the people that contribute to this publication. Whether it’s the folks at Housing or MWR, Public Works or Safety, the Fleet and Family Support Center or Security, they all had one thing in common: they truly cared about every single Sailor and family member that walked through our gates. Through the years, these folks have selflessly given of themselves and their organizations to make sure that our Sailors were taken care of. They have been the life blood of Naval Weapons Station Charleston and they are some of the best people you could ever hope to meet. We have tried to reflect this attitude within the pages of the Shoreline. As the ink dries on this final edition of the Shoreline and Naval Weapons Station Charleston arises anew as Naval Support Activity Charleston, Joint Base Charleston, rest assured that these great folks will still be here, everyday, tirelessly giving of themselves to take care of our most precious assets, our people. As for the staff of the Shoreline, well, we’re heading over to the Air Force side of Joint Base Charleston where we will continue to provide you with as much military news and family fare as we can possibly cram into the new paper, The Patriot. It will be different. The Patriot will be published weekly and will contain Air Force as well as Navy news and news from our other services, but, we will strive to continue to provide as much of that hometown feeling as we can. Now, its time to turn off the computers, shut down the printers and turn out the lights. We have to pack our cameras and head over to the Air Force base. Eric Sesit, Editor, NWS Charleston Shoreline

More focus needed to end suicides

Rear Adm. Tim Alexander, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, signs a proclamation on Sept 8, to proclaim September as Suicide Prevention Month, during a ceremony in the commander’s office. The proclamation focused on first responders applying ACT - Ask, Care, Treat, as a proactive approach to suicide prevention.

By Elaine Wilson, American Forces Press Service A silent killer is rapidly infiltrating the military, claiming lives at an alarming rate each year. Military suicides have more than doubled in the Army, exceeding the national average over the past five years, and leaders are redoubling efforts to figure out why. “It’s an area that can’t get enough focus right now,” Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said. “When we’re losing as many lives as we are, it is a crisis we have to continue to address.” “It’s a very difficult, vexing, complex problem and one that leadership has to spend an awful lot of time on to try to figure out,” Mullen said. While top leaders are struggling to find answers, military suicides have reached a critical point, the chairman said. Last year, suicide claimed 309 troops, and in 2008, 267 servicemembers committed suicide, according to a Defense Department task force. From 2005 to 2009, more than 1,100 servicemembers took their own lives, an average of one suicide every 36 hours, the task force said. Some reports attribute the spike to multiple deployments and long family separations. The majority of suicides do take place among servicemembers who have deployed, Mullen said. A considerable number occur among those who haven’t deployed, he added. Complicating the issue is a delay in symptoms for those who have served in combat, Mullen said. In many cases, post-traumatic stress symptoms don’t reveal themselves until

months or years later, and a servicemember may be discharged by that time and back in a civilian community without the same level of support. The military needs to find ways to track those servicemembers so they receive the support they need, he said. The military also must work to end the stigma that’s preventing people from seeking help early on, Mullen said, including family members afraid to raise a red flag. Spouses often are the first to notice a problem, but are fearful of the career repercussions for their servicemember if they speak up, Mrs. Mullen said. “We know that servicemembers tell their spouses not to mention any symptoms the servicemember might be experiencing for fear that, as one spouse said, ‘That will mean the end of their career,’” she said. “That stigma is so ingrained and embedded in not just the military, but in our country, and breaking through that is going to be key .... to solving this problem.” Fortunately, families have more avenues of help now than ever before, including ones that offer anonymity, she said. People who are uncomfortable speaking with someone at a military clinic can instead receive 12 free counseling appointments through Military OneSource or contact Tricare for online counseling at home. Other resources include the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors at 1800-959-TAPS (8277) or a military family life consultant.

Are You at Risk for PAD? Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when extra cholesterol and other fats circulating in the blood collect in the walls of the arteries that supply blood to your limbs. This buildup – called plaque – narrows your arteries, often reducing or blocking blood flow. PAD is most commonly seen in the legs. Nearly 75% of the people with PAD do not experience symptoms. Knowing the facts can save your life. What puts you at risk for PAD? • Over the age of 50 • Diabetes • Current or past smoker • High blood pressure • High cholesterol • History of vascular disease, heart attack or stroke If you are concerned about PAD, call 402-CARE for a free doctor referral to the Roper St. Francis Heart & Vascular Center.

Sailor receives Navy and Marine Corps Medal By NWS Charleston Public Affairs

Electricans Mate First Class (SS) Nathan W. Lewis received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal in a ceremony at the Red Bank Club, Sept 13. The Honorable Robert O. Work, Under Secretary of the Navy, presented the medal to Lewis. Admiral Kirkland H. Donald, Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion was also in attendance. Lewis, an instructor at Nuclear Power Training Unit, received the medal for heroism. On May 12, 2008, Lewis placed himself in harm’s way in order to rescue a gravely injured motorist on Interstate 26. A passenger vehicle had collided with a cement truck, killing the passenger vehicle’s driver, front passenger and gravely injuring another passenger. The collision caused the cement truck to spill its load of concrete, filling the passenger vehicle and trapping the injured passenger. EM1 Lewis, used his own utility shirt to shield the injured passenger’s face,

and repeatedly dug through enough of the concrete with his bare hands to prevent it from pooling around the trapped victim’s face long enough for emergency responders to arrive and render aid. Even after emergency personnel responded to the scene, Lewis continued to assist and even covered the bodies of the deceased in the front seat with his own shirt, preventing the injured passenger from seeing them. The Navy and Marine Corps Medal is the second highest non-combatant medal awarded by the United States Department of the Navy to members of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. It is awarded to service members who, while serving in any capacity with the Navy or Marine Corps, distinguish themselves by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. Typically, it is awarded for actions involving the risk of one’s own life.

FN Nicholas Cage assigned to NNPTC, lends a helping hand by doing some landscaping at the Malcom C. Hursey Elementary School. More than 2,500 Sailors and Airmen throughout the Charleston area participated in the Day of Caring event.

Sailors from NNPTC pile gravel on a tarp to stop weed growth at a local non-profit organization, Habitat for Humanity Restore in Goose Creek, as part of the Day of Caring community service event.

A Day of Caring in the Lowcountry Servicemembers from Lowcountry commands spent Sept 10 in service to their community. Sailors were painting, raking, pressure washing and performing hundreds of other tasks in conjunction with the Trident United Way Day of Caring community service event. While the manual labor made for a long day, the Sailors appreciated the break in their everyday routine. As one young Sailor put it, “It’s not everyday we can get away from the school house and do something good for the community. It puts a different perspective on how important the Navy is to this community, and also, how much the community really does appreciate the military.” Photo by MC1 (SW/AW) Jennifer Hudson

Humvees roll up to USNS Soderman while she was inport NWS Charleston. Prepositioning ships support all military branches as well as the Defense Logistics Agency to ensure rapid availability of military equipment during times of crisis. The ships provide transportation of the gear to areas of operation without having to rely on other nation’s modes of transportation.

NWS Charleston crew members worked tirelessly alongside the 841st Army Transportation Battalion, Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston (ASLAC), Maritime Sealift Command and various contracting partners. “Teamwork is essential for this type of operation. We understand that the mission is important and we have to get the ship loaded and out on time. Everyone really came together to make this happen,� said Commander, 841st Army Transportation Battalion, Lt. Colonel Ines White. “Without one piece of the puzzle we could not complete the whole picture.� The ships allow the military the capability to receive needed equipment in a timely manner in order to respond quickly to any emergency. They provide quick movement of military gear between operating areas without relying on other nation’s modes of transportation. “It is critical that we do not have to rely on the infrastructure support of other nations to deliver the equipment to our troops,� said Mowery. After the on-load USNS Soderman will

set sail and anchor in the Western Pacific, where the ship will stay for more than two years, switching out the crew every four months. “So far everything has gone according to plan—we are right on track and moving along quite smoothly,� said the Master of USNS Soderman, Chris Spain. Once the ship’s overseas tour is completed, it will return to port where the equipment onboard will receive maintenance and/or upgrades, or replaced with completely different gear before returning to sea. The equipment, like everything, has a life-cycle that may need to be repaired from rust or any damage before it can be used. There are currently more than 25 prepositioning ships distributed among the branches of the military, strategically placed around the world. “We are right on schedule and I am really pleased with all that hard work that is going into this operation,� said General Manager of ASLAC Bob O’Brien. “I don’t think we could have been as successful as we are right now if it wasn’t for all the teamwork we have.�

Distinguished Visitor (DV) / Visitor Quarters (VQ) NWS Charleston has two units available to provide temporary quality accommodations to military and civilian personnel on official government travel orders. Retired personnel are housed on a space available basis. Reservations through the month of September may be made at (843)7647218 or 7228 or 1-800-362-2399. Reservations beginning October 1, 2010 may be made by contacting the Inns of Charleston at (843)963-8000, x8110.

Bachelor Housing Resident Advisor meetings are held quarterly and all residents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Our latest Resident Advisors meeting was held August 19. Some of the items discussed were: - Resident Advisors (RA) duties, responsibilities and policy enforcement. - Possible realignment of current RA’s Area of Responsibilities (AOR) to help address areas that were not currently assigned, as well as having the duty RA’s participate in room inspections monthly. - Currently seeking more RA’s. Requesting assistance in getting the positions filled. RA’s may be an E-5, and must be approved by their respective commanding officer, and then receive final approval from the Commanding Officer Naval Weapons Station Charleston. Bachelor Housing residents are assigned a numbered carport correlating to their assigned unit. Since there is only one carport for every two occupants, parking under these carports are first come, first serve. Personnel owning two or more vehicles shall park only one vehicle, the one that is driven on a daily basis, under the carport. All residents must have their vehicle registration and base decal current at all times. There are additional parking spaces available adjacent to units in designated areas. Do not park on the grass; all offenders will have their vehicle ticketed. Multiple offenses could lead to

vehicle being towed at resident’s expense. Parking in Bachelor Housing employees’ parking spaces is authorized after 4:00 p.m., but should be moved prior to 7:00 a.m. Energy Conservation is very important. During recent exterior inspections, the BH staff has noticed some windows that were left open while the A/C was running. All residents are reminded again that energy conservation is an all hands effort. Please do your part. Your cooperation is necessary to reduce energy usage and subsequent cost. You can help by: a. Turning off all electrical items (i.e., lights, radios, TV’s, stereos, irons, etc.) when not in use or prior to leaving the quarters. b. Keeping doors and windows closed in air conditioned spaces. If there are circumstances preventing proper closure, report findings immediately to BH Front Desk. c. Setting thermostat on 78 degrees for cooling and on 68 degrees for heating and not changing the settings. Units are equipped with programmable thermostats. Tampering with thermostat program is not authorized. d. Immediately reporting water leaks to the Building Manager or Front Desk. e. Reporting any energy conservation violation as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Bachelor Housing Director Robert Ladue or Bachelor Housing Manager SHC (SW/AW) Anderson, or SH1 Jones at 764-7646/4144. Thank you and have a Great Navy Day!

Navy Region Southeast shines in energy conservation By Stephen Strickland, Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs The commitment of Navy Region Southeast to reduce energy usage was recognized recently by the Secretary of the Navy with awards for all 16 of its non-BRAC installations. “These awards reflect our significant progress in making energy and water conservation a high priority in our everyday mission of supporting the fleet, family and warfighter,” Commander Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Tim Alexander said. “This marks the first time all non-BRAC installations in Navy Region Southeast received recognition. Leading the way was Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, one of only seven Navy or Marine Corps shore commands worldwide to be recognized as a platinum level award winner, signifying an outstanding energy program and an excep-

tional year of energy project execution. “Kings Bay is doing some innovative things to reduce energy and water consumption,” Alexander said. “From a new wastewater treatment plant with water savings of $60,000 a year, to the innovative use of solar technology to augment that plant with energy savings of $116,000 a year, the installation is realizing significant energy use reduction.” Other award winners in the Southeast Region included Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.; Naval Air Station Key West, Fla.; Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas; Naval Air Station Meridian, Miss.; and Naval Support Activity Panama City, Fla. These installations were all gold level award winners, indicating a very good to outstanding energy program.

The awards program also has a blue level award for commands with a well-rounded energy program. Navy Region Southeast commands winning awards in this category included Naval Construction Battalion Center Gulfport, Miss.; Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas; Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas; Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans; Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla.; Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Milton, Fla.; Navy Supply Corps School Athens, Ga.; Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; Naval Weapons Station Charleston, S.C.; Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division at Naval Support Activity Orlando, Fla.; and Naval Station Mayport, Fla.
