afa Adai FRANK CABLE Sailors, friends and family,

It has been a busy summer for the FRANK CABLE team! We had a very successful port visit to Subic in June and just completed our major radiological inspection. The whole FRANK CABLE team has been working hard and the results are paying off. The FRANK CABLE holiday party will be Friday, 13 December, at the Pacific Island Club in Tumon. The MWR team is diligently working to ensure it is another outstanding holiday party. Please save the date and I look forward to seeing you there. On September 20, I had the opportunity to participate in Naval Base Guam’s Ombudsman Appreciation Luncheon. It was a great chance to recognize the hard work of the Ombudsmen across the island, but most importantly, FRANK CABLE’s two very capable Ombudsmen, Jenn Cronin and Tricia Belz. Their work to support the FRANK CABLE families are truly outstanding. I would like to thank the FRANK CABLE Family Readiness Group for all they do. We recently had a successful bake sale and the crew is looking forward to the annual Thanksgiving pie sale. Majority of the proceeds from these events will support the annual Holiday Children’s Party, which is always a good time. We are planning an underway in October to maintain crew proficiency and to work on qualifications. As I write this, we are still working the details with our operational commanders. We will let everyone know as soon as the details are finalized. Once again, I would like to thank the FRANK CABLE crew for all of their hard work. Their efforts directly contribute to the effectiveness of the submarine force in the Western Pacific. Your support of your Sailor and the entire FRANK CABLE team contributes directly to the success of the ship and this important mission. Thank you and have a great fall!

Respectfully,

CAPT. Pete Hildreth

H

ello Frank Cable Family,

I just marked my six months on board milestone and am reminded everyday how impressive a ship and crew we have. I am humbly honored to be your Executive Officer. We have been very busy over the past three months and I wanted to say thank you for all of your support. FRANK CABLE deployed to the Republic of the Philippines, passed the NAVSEA 08 audit, conducted numerous drills, and completed repair availabilities on six surface ships and 15 submarines. None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our FRANK CABLE Sailors and Civilian Mariners and the support of their friends and family. With the arrival of the fall season, holidays are right around the corner. This is a great time to spend your hard earned vacation with friends and family but be sure to celebrate safely. Plan your travel to allow enough time to get to your destination safely and incorporate enough rest times between events. Don’t try and drive overnight. For those of you who have been living on the island awhile, you forget that back home there are different weather patterns to be concerned with (rain, snow and ice). Be sure your vehicle is ready to meet these hazards. Remember, operational risk management applies both on, and off duty; make a plan so you can enjoy the holidays safely. Thank you again for all the hard work you do to keep us mission ready.

Respectfully,

CDR. Thomas Gorey

WITH THE COMMAND MASTER

reetings FRANK CABLE Sailors, families and friends.

As we gear up for the ship’s next underway, I would like to thank the families for all that you do. It has been a hot, humid summer and it looks like everyone enjoyed it and was even happier getting back to school! The holiday season is fast approaching. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years is just a couple of months away. Please take the time to plan appropriately. If your plans have you back on the mainland for the holidays to visit family and friends, please consider that you have lived on a small island were it only takes minutes on the road to reach your destination. This is usually not the case for most that return home for the holidays. This involves long drives...please be careful and plan ahead. To maximize leave for this holiday stand down leave period, we will have 2 leave periods that are 17 days each. The dates for the upcoming holiday leave periods are as follows:

First leave period: 13 Dec - 30 Dec Second leave period: 27 Dec - 13 Jan Crew stand down period: 20 Dec - 6 Jan The crew’s holiday party will be 13 December at the Pacific Island Club Resort in Tumon. The crew, and especially the families, are all invited to attend. As always I am impressed with the crew’s performance and support we receive from the families.

Respectfully,

CMDCM(SW/SS/DV) Roger Schneider

A Note from your Command

OMBUDSMAN

As the holidays are approaching us, we should all take a few moments to reflect on this past year.

It can be challenging for all of us being stationed on Guam; especially during the holidays when many of us are so far away from our families. That is not to say that you do not have any family around. Just look around you and you’ll find that you are part of one of the biggest families around – the Navy family! Our fellow military families will become some of your closest friends and even feel like family at times. They will be there to help you when you get stuck or just need a person to talk to. They can be someone who has been in the same situation before and understands what you are going through. Guam and its culture have so much to offer. Getting involved with the community and experiencing the island can enhance our quality of life while stationed on Guam. Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) is a good place to go to help alleviate some anxieties you may have. They are a great place for one stop shopping for those who are new to the island, as well as for those who have been on Guam for some time to get information, resources and support. Some services they offer are: counseling, classes for stress and anger management, surviving the holidays financially, and the Welcome to Guam Orientation and tour. FFSC is located in building 106. If you would like more information you can contact them at 333-2056/57. To be added to our E-mail roster, please E-mail us at: cableomb@yahoo.com and be sure to include your name, your service members name and rate (ex. ET3 Jones) and your projected rotation date (PRD) (ex. Jan. 2015).

Newly promoted chief petty officers assigned to the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) sing “Anchors Aweigh” on the stage of the base theater

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Zac Shea, USS Frank Cable Public Affairs The submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) added 28 Sailors to its chief petty officers’ (CPO) mess in a ceremony at the Naval Base Guam theater, Sept. 13. Frank Cable’s Commanding Officer, Capt. Pete Hildreth, attended the ceremony and encouraged the new chiefs to look toward the future. “Pass on these experiences to the next generation of Sailors,” said

Hildreth. “Find, grow, and mentor the next chief petty officers and continue the great work you’ve been doing throughout your career. Congratulations and well done.” The event marked the culmination of a year of CPO 365 training and a final six weeks of phase two training. “I learned a lot in this process,” said newly promoted Chief Gunner’s Mate Curtis Luttrell. “After completing the process, I feel confident I can help shape and lead Sailors.” Sailors must face numerous challenges and obstacles on their path to becoming a Chief.

Chief Gunner’s Mate Curtis Luttrell salutes fellow chiefs after being promoted.

“These guys did great,” said Chief Navy Diver Jeremiah Lively, the repair six dive locker leading chief petty officer. “It’s a remarkable change from when the process began and now. Even in the span of six weeks, you can see the change in them.” Attaining the rank of chief petty officer is a career milestone for many. “It’s really transitioning from one way of life to another,” added Lively. “You completely leave behind the lifestyle you once lived in the Navy and take on a whole new role. You change your uniform, you change everything.” During the ceremony, these select-

ees were presented with their gold fouled anchor collar devices and their combination covers. “It was an awesome feeling. There’s no way to really describe it,” said newly promoted Chief Yeoman Jaime Gonzalez. “There’s so much pride and honor instilled in these anchors.” The ceremony concluded with all Chiefs, past and present, singing a hearty rendition of “Anchors Aweigh.” After receiving congratulations from friends, family, and shipmates, 28 Sailors began their journey as Navy chief petty officers.

Chief Logistics Specialist Mariel Gatbonton has his combination cover put on by Chief Electronics Technician James Brown at the base theater.

Stand-Up Comedians Visit Frank Cable

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Greg House, USS Frank Cable (AS 40) Public Affairs

S

tand-up comedians Daniel Dugar, Gary Owen and Rodney Perry visited Sailors and civilian mariners aboard the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40), August 13. The visit was sponsored by Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s Armed Forces Entertainment which included the three comedians from the comedy show “B4 they made you laugh”, hosted by Dugar. Dugar is proud to be hosting this tour for overseas service members. “This is all about giving back to the military,” said Dugar. “The name of the tour alludes to the fact that both Gary Owen and Rodney Perry are both former military, so they understand what these guys go through; that is what it’s all about, taking these guys, who are so far away from home, and making them feel like they are at home.” Dugar has appeared on “Black Entertainment Television (BET) Comic View,” Home Box Office (HBO), Apollo, Showtime and many more. While aboard Frank Cable, the comedians toured the ship’s repair department spaces, medical and dental divisions, bridge and other spaces. While they toured the shops, the comedians joked with Sailors, musing about their time in the military. Although Guam is more than 1,500 miles from Japan, where the rest of the tour took place, Dugar did not want to leave anyone out of the laughs. “We have to try to hit everybody with this tour,” he added. “Guam is the last stop on this tour, but we haven’t forgotten about you guys out here.” Sailors who attended the show enjoyed the performance. “It was great,” said Religious Programs Specialist 1st Class Lonnie McDade. “They were all very funny, and it was awesome to see two prior military guys involved with the show.” Sailors had fun and were grateful for the comedians to come out and support the military. “It was great to have these guys out here showing appreciation to the military,” said Engineman 1st Class Floyd Johnson. Although Guam was the last leg in the tour, Dugar said he still has some surprises for the service members in Guam coming up soon. “We will see you guys in January,” alluded Dugar.

SON OF FRANK CABLE CHIEF SELECTED FOR WORLD WIDE NAVY YOUTH PROGRAM By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Greg House and Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Gabrielle Joyner, USS Frank Cable Public Affairs 10

hildren surround Alexander Ashton as they chatter and play in the youth center where he works on Naval Base Guam. At 17 years old, Ashton, demonstrating a level of wisdom and sophistication beyond his years, was selected for a spot on the 2013 Navy Teen Council. Navy Teen Council is a program that selects teens that are involved in youth programs on bases from various regions around the world and brings them all together to create a constructive dialogue so Navy leadership can improve on these programs. After being nominated by his employer, Ashton wrote an essay, competing against 100 other teen volunteers from around the world. He is the first teen to represent Naval Region Marianas in the Navy Teen Council,

which has only 15 openings. “I am very honored to be selected, very privileged,” said Ashton. “I was surprised to get selected and go back to DC. I worked hard on the essay and I’m humbled that I get the opportunity to take part in this program.” Ashton’s father, Chief Boatswain’s Mate Darin Ashton, a Sailor assigned to the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40), has great respect for his son’s achievements. “I am very proud of my son for challenging himself in this type of environment and work,” said Chief Ashton. “He has shown a maturity level beyond his age.” Ashton is not new to volunteering with Navy youth programs; he did the same work in Annapolis Md., before his father was assigned to Frank Cable. Ashton already has some plans for what he would like to see implemented in youth programs around the world. “I just want to improve my teen and youth programs, make it more productive and try to get more participation,” said Ashton. “I also want to get more local culture into the programs.” Along with the other Navy Teen Council members, Ashton recently took a trip to Washington D.C. to discuss concerns with their Navy installation programs and share ideas as well as come up with solutions. While they were there, he and his group worked on a website and mobile application that will help improve participation and connect teens from different bases called the “Virtual Youth Program”. “We were able to debrief some very important people about our new program,” explained Ashton. “Basically, the ‘Virtual Youth Program’ will help out a lot with participation, and with participation we can have more events, help out and make things a lot better.” Even though the main purpose of the trip was to help Navy

youth around the world, the trip had a personal effect on Ashton. “It has definitely changed me,” said Ashton. “I learned a lot about leadership and working together as a group to achieve a goal.” Ashton continued to say that Navy youths are not alone and he hopes that the application can bridge that gap. Ashton’s father can see the far-reaching effects of the work his son is doing. “This has already impacted him and has made him a better person,” said Chief Ashton. “This could help him achieve immense goals.” also visit us at www.facebook.com/FrankCableAS40

Ashton receives support, not only from his father, but from his coworkers as well. “My relationship with my coworkers is like family,” said Ashton. “I’ve been volunteering here for three months and it’s like a family here.” The work Ashton and the Navy Teen Council have done is sure to have an effect on youth programs on naval installations world wide, and as the Navy Teen Council Face book says, “It’s time to put Navy teens in the driver’s seat of Navy Youth Programs.”

9/11 Remembrance Frank Cable Chief Selects Take Part in Ceremony By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Greg House, USS Frank Cable Public Affairs

hief Petty Officer (CPO) selectees onboard the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) held a Patriot Day ceremony during colors to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that cost nearly 3,000 lives. “The purpose of this ceremony is to remember those who have fallen and to remind us why we are doing what we do today to protect our country and our loved ones,” said Boatswain’s Mate First Class Allen Hawthorne, a CPO selectee. Electrician’s Mate First Class Gerald Fine, a CPO selectee and the master of ceremonies for the event, took the time to explain what it meant to remember the events of September 11 as he and his shipmates get ready to become chief petty officers. “A lot of the CPO Selects up here today joined because of Sept. 11,” said Fine. “It changed almost our entire generation. A lot of the younger guys coming in were very young when Sept. 11 happened and it is extremely important for us to let them know the importance of Sept. 11.” Fine’s speech inspired all of Frank Cable’s CPO Selectees to share where they were when they first heard about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. “His (Fine’s) speech was moving and brought tears to my eyes,” said Hawthorne. “When I found out about Sept. 11, I was just getting up out of bed and my roommate ran in and told me the towers were hit. I didn’t believe and told him to go away and let me know when some real news hit. I walked into the living room and couldn’t pull my eyes away from the television.” “We still remember,” said Fine. “We still remember the sacrifices of the people that have gone before us. We still remember that pain that some of the families are still going through. We’re all Americans.”

5K For Women’s Equality Day By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Gabrielle Joyner, USS Frank Cable (AS 40) Public Affairs

T

he crew of the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) ran a 5k in honor of women’s equality day on Polaris Point, Guam, August 30. According to Chief Select Master at Arms Natalie Dymond, the run was dedicated to the females who have paved the way for equality of women in the United States Navy. “There are several key personnel that have paved the way for women in the Navy, as commanders of ships, in carrier strike groups and also as pilots,” said Dymond. “Today we pay special tribute to Lt. Britta Christianson, the supply officer of the guided-missile submarine USS Ohio (SSGN 726).” Christianson is the first woman to qualify as a Submarine Warfare Officer, while serving alongside men as part of the crew. Yeoman 3rd Class Heidi Odom, who is assigned to Frank Cable and participated in the 5k, said that she was inspired by Christianson. “Christianson accomplished something that no other woman in the Navy had achieved before,” said Odom. “I’m inspired to continue to move forward in my career and strive to complete a similar qualification on the ship, the enlisted surface warfare pin.” Odom said she surprised herself at the 5k when she blazed past the finish line beating the goal she set. “I was impressed that I placed where I did during the run,” said Odom. “I am going to continue to motivate myself and help others in need that work alongside me on this ship to imitate the strength that Christianson showed.” Dymond advises women in the Navy to keep up and remain strong, especially now more than ever. “I’m pulling my own weight right next to the guys as the only female in the phase two chief select process,” said Dymond. “Women can’t use their gender as a crutch; there are endless opportunities for women joining the Navy right now to work for.”

Volunteers for a Worthy Cause

FCPOA Updates WIC Office

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Zac Shea, USS Frank Cable Public Affairs

Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Brenda Mensah paints the walls of the Women Infant Children (WIC) office as part of an effort by the Second Class Petty Officer Association (SCPOA) to give a fresh face to the inside of the building.

he submarine tender USS Frank Cable’s (AS 40) Second Class Petty Officer Association (SCPOA) volunteered at the Tiyan branch of the Women, Infant and Children Program (WIC) by making various improvements in their offices. “We heard WIC could use some help out in Tiyan so we checked it out,” said Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Nicholas Corpe, a SCPOA member. “It’s a great organization that helps out with children’s most important stages of development.” WIC is a special supplemental nutrition program that provides access to nutritional foods and education. The program is available to pregnant and postpartum women and children from birth to age 4 who are deemed at risk for malnutrition. The office also acts as a gateway to refer at-risk clients to other health services. “It’s about showing the locals we’re not just here to do our military jobs; we’re also here to help them. We’re a part of the community,” said Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Jason Ford, president of the SCPOA. “We would like to continue working with this organization.” Frank Cable Sailors aided WIC by applying fresh paint throughout the office, cleaning, and moving furniture. “It’s great for Sailors to help out, not only the public, but government agencies,” said Felix Leon Guerrero, WIC administrative assistant. “We heard about some work the SCPOA did with a local school and looked into having them

come here. It’ll be great to have clients come into a nice, clean space.” WIC is one of many organizations the SCPOA have volunteered with, which include Guam Animals in Need and the Roadway Adoption Program.
