LANCE CPL. VICTOR A. ARRIAGA

Three AV-8B Harriers with Marine Attack Squadron 231 sit on the Cherry Point flight line Friday during Exercise Razor Talon, an Air Force led joint-exercise. The quarterly exercise is a mock conflict involving numerous aircraft from Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force attack and training squadrons from across the Eastern Seaboard.

Several Marine Aircraft Group 14 squadrons participated in exercise Razor Talon Friday, an Air Force led jointexercise at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, N.C. The quarterly exercise simulates a mock conflict involving numerous aircraft from Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force attack and training squadrons from across the

Eastern Seaboard. MAG-14 provided support with AV-8B Harriers and EA-6B Prowlers for the exercise. “This is a unique opportunity for us to train in a major theater-war conflict mindset with dozens of aircraft airborne at one time,” said Maj. Ryan Ward, the officer in charge of Cherry Point’s Marine Aviation Training System Site. “At the same time, this is very difficult to simulate and perform airborne because this takes weeks

of planning and coordination to do.” Prior to the exercise, all participating MAG-14 units met to plan and brief all pilots and instructors involved in the exercise. “Instead of each individual unit planning in their own spaces, we bring them all in to plan together,” he said. See TALON page A7

Staff Sgt. Joseph Domann hugs his daughter on the Cherry Point flight line Sunday. Domann was the staff noncommissioned officer-in-charge of the electric shop work center of Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252 Detachment B. Domann was a part of a nine-month deployment in support of the SpecialPurpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Black Sea Rotational Force and U.S. Africa Command’s SpecialPurpose MAGTF Crisis Response in Moron Air Base, Spain.

Marines with Marine Air Support Squadron 1 are conducting a direct air-support center drill at their squadron headquarters Dec. 16-20. The purpose of DASC drills is to simulate missions Marines could face while deployed, said Sgt. Marissa Miller, the noncommissioned officer-in-charge of the drill for MASS-1. “DASC drills prepare the Marines for what they will be facing in combat,” said Miller. The Marines need to understand how critical it is to respond quickly and correctly to anything that fixed-wing or helicopter aircrews may need, said Miller. Miller, who recently returned from Afghanistan, feels it is extremely important for the newer Marines in the DASC to understand the urgency of their mission. “In a real life scenario, MASS-1 is in charge of any aircraft that come in their air space,” said Miller. The Marines of MASS-1 command all military and civilian aircraft below 15,000 feet in their air space. “The biggest mission in the DASC community, which is what MASS-1 supports as a whole, is medical evacuations for the Marines,” said Miller. “Whenever Marines are doing their mission outside the wire and one of them gets hurt, we are the first ones they call because we are the ones that are sending in aircraft to pick that Marine up.” See DRILL page A7

What’s the problem with Christmas? CMDR. PHIL PELIKAN MCAS CHERRY POINT COMMAND CHAPLAIN

“Merry Christmas.” This phrase, spoken by at least 2.1 billion Christians world wide, for some reason is becoming increasingly problematic in the politically correct times in which we live. I say, “at least” because many non-Christians use the phrase as well during this season. After all, it is a federal holiday in the United States and a holiday in many other countries as well. I wrote in a previous article about how the Japanese are into Christmas in a big way, playing Christmas carols in English in the malls and shops and putting up Christmas lights and Christmas trees all over the place. There’s even a shop in Hayama, Japan, called Captain Santa’s Surf Shop, sporting a barefoot Santa with his red suit and beard on a surfboard. I have a shirt from there. I’m not sure when this greeting became offensive, but it seems rather strange to me. I grew up in Los Angeles, where I attended public school back in the 50s and 60s through my high school years, graduating in 1970. I can tell you that back then, for some reason, it was never a problem. I can remember back in grammar school sitting in music class and learning not only Christmas carols, but Hanukkah songs as well. Our teacher, Mrs. Dalzell, was in fact Jewish, but she didn’t seem to have a problem at all teaching

us the songs of the season, from “Silent Night” to the “Dreidel” song. It was very culturally enriching. So what’s the problem with Christmas? I’m not trying to make a plea for “majority rules” here, although that is a democratic principle. I am making a plea for common courtesy and real tolerance. We hear a lot about tolerance these days, but just don’t seem to see much of it. It seems that tolerance only extends to that with which one agrees. But then, when something is heard or seen with which a person disagrees, the tolerance ends. In effect, the so-called tolerant person is actually intolerant of what he or she perceives as the intolerance of others. Anyway, I think that this whole issue just needs to be dropped, and we should all just enjoy the diversity in which we all live. Let Christians be Christians, Muslims be Muslims, Jews be Jewish, Buddhists be Buddhists, and so on! What’s the big problem anyway? I wish people could just stop being offended by holiday names, what we call certain trees and parties and even that guy we call Santa Claus. If Jesus is the reason for this season and you don’t particularly care for that, that’s OK! Just go out there and find something you do care about and flaunt that! That’s what the 1st Amendment is really all about — freedom of religion and freedom of expression. America, what a great country we live in!

SEAMAN TONY LENARD Job Title: Hospital Corpsman Unit: Naval Health Clinic Cherry Point Age: 21 Hometown: Shreveport, La. Date Joined: Feb. 1, 2012 Growing up in Shreveport, La., Seaman Tony Lenard always knew his calling was to help people. “I joined the Navy to get away from bad situations in my life,” said Lenard. “I joined to help people and do something good.” Lenard studied biology and English in college, but after school did not go as planned, followed in his cousin’s footsteps and enlisted in the Navy. Lenard, a corpsman at Cherry Point’s Naval Health Clinic, works in the Military Home Port. He helps ensure all Cherry Point personnel are medically ready, taking vital signs, performing ear, nose and throat exams, drawing blood and giving vaccinations. “On top of my daily duties as a corpsman, I have several collateral duties I have taken on,” he said. “Infection control, changing the sharps containers, maintaining hand sanitation stations, and sterilizing equipment are some of my duties.” Lenard said his job is essential because not only does he help keep patients safe and healthy, but also fellow corpsmen and hospital workers. “Helping people and knowing that you are making a difference makes it worth the work,” explained Lenard. Off duty, Lenard often volunteers around the air station and in the community. “I volunteer for breast cancer walks, volleyball tournaments, committees and parading the colors,” he said. “Really anywhere that I can help make a difference, I will.”

Day Walkers, Rams clash during championship game LANCE CPL. JOSHUA R. HEINS MCAS CHERRY POINT

The Day Walkers of Marine Aircraft Group 29 clenched the intramural basketball league championship Dec. 9, defeating the Rams from Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron during a nail biting match up at The Marine Dome. The Day Walkers fought their way to a 56-52 victory over the Rams. The league, assembled with the support of Marine Corps Community Services, boasted a 16-teams competing in a 15-game regular season followed by a single elimination playoff. The Day Walkers and Rams, both considered underdogs heading into the playoffs, entered as the fifth and seventh seeds. A combination of unselfish play and a sound understanding of fundamentals lead both teams to the championship game. “Some people doubted us being able to make it through the playoffs,” said Vernty Bryant, a forward for the Day Walkers. “The key for us was just sticking together and getting through the season as a team.” Bryant led the Day Walkers with 26 points in the final game, establishing himself as an offensive weapon, especially down the home stretch. “The key to our victory was being able to make our free throws,” said Bryant. The Day Walkers sank four key shots from the foul line in the last two minutes of the game, slowing the Rams last-minute surge. Behind 28 to 19 at the half, the Rams came to within one shot of the lead, feeding their big men down low. Time was not on the Rams side, however, with fouls in the final minutes giving Bryant and his team an opportunity to pad their lead from the Rams charge. “We couldn’t buy a shot,” said Jeffrey Gibson, a guard and the team captain of the Rams. “Our defense was sound. We just weren’t making the baskets when we needed them.” “Both teams refused to give up,” said Gibson. “It was a great game to be a part of.”

The Day Walkers intramural basketball team comprised of Marines with Marine Aircraft Group 29, were crowned the winners of the intramural basketball league championship Dec. 9 at the Marine Dome. The Day Walkers beat the Rams 56-52.

USS RONALD REAGAN – Marines with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361 departed Camp Pendleton, Calif., to conduct rotary-wing operations aboard the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) Dec. 6. Marines flew CH-53E Super Stallions, the largest and heaviest helicopters in the United States military, from Camp Pendleton, landing on the aircraft carrier off the coast of San Diego. The Commandant of the Marine Corps and Chief of Naval Operations have called for a renewed emphasis on “non-traditional” collaboration between services, according to Col. Brent Willson, the liaison officer of Commander Third Fleet, and Col. Christopher Scharf with 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade. “Traditionally, Marines’ helicopters, tilt-rotors and infantry do not operate aboard nuclear-powered aircraft carriers,” Wilson said. The Super Stallion’s primary role is to transport heavy equipment and supplies during ship-to-shore movements in support of amphibious assaults and during operations ashore. However, the recent typhoon in the Philippines proved humanitarian assistance and disaster relief can be completed from a carrier, as the USS George Washington sustained relief operations. Willson and Scharf said they are familiarizing teams so they are prepared when the need arises. “We look forward to learning other creative, non-traditional methods where we can more effectively leverage capabilities with the Navy,” said Wilson.

The training allows the squadrons to understand 2nd LAAD Bn. capabilities including entry control points, quick reaction force, convoy security, combat patrols and base defense operations center during Exercise Forager Fury II. Forager Fury II is a joint exercise designed to employ and assess combat power generation in a deployed and austere environment. HSC-25 is stationed at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. The Marines with 2nd LAAD are currently assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 12, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, under the unit deployment program. “It’s good joint training between the Navy and Marine Corps. It defines that ‘one team to the fight’ aspect,” said Navy Lt. j.g. Fletcher Wasson, an MH-60S Seahawk pilot with HSC-25. “The PME was beneficial because it gave pilots and aircrewmen a good insight into the capabilities and limitations of Stinger missiles.” The Marines also covered functions and capabilities of the FI-92 Stinger launcher, which allows Marines and Sailors to join forces to expand aviation capabilities. “Within seconds of the radio call to engage the aircraft, we can have missiles in the sky,” said Cpl. Kristopher Biegel, a gunner with 2nd LAAD. “It’s a fire-andforget missile so after you fire you can set the launcher down and move on to the next one if necessary. It can engage multiple

aircraft, including helicopters, drones and jets.” HSC-25 is participating in Forager Fury II executing close air support training as well as sea combat search and rescue, according to Capt. Joshua Anderson, officerin-charge of the 2nd LAAD detachment. However, close-air support would not be successful if there were no appropriate ground defense tactics. “We’re providing ground-base air defense in support of North Field on Tinian, denying the enemy to hit crucial assets on Tinian’s North Field,” said Anderson. “It really brings the expeditionary nature of what we do to the forefront because we’re not focusing on big troop movements, were focusing on the finely-tuned applications of force throughout an expeditionary battle space.” With operations on Tinian providing unique opportunities for Marines and Sailors to exercise specific unit capabilities, Forager Fury II increases MAG-12 Marines’ operational readiness and improves their core expeditionary combat capabilities. “Working in these conditions has been challenging, but this is exactly what we do as an expeditionary helicopter combat squadron and the only forward helicopter squadron in the United States Navy,” said Wasson. Along with hosting HSC-25, Forager Fury II is the first exercise in the Pacific to have a LAAD unit involved in the training since the resumption of the unit deployment program, according to Anderson. “This brings a lot of new environments, new opportunities and new people for the Marines to work with,” said Anderson. “They’re getting the opportunity to train in an austere environment, which is relatively new for us in this (military occupational specialty).”

“We fight as a unit. If you haven’t planned or practiced, it then becomes a very difficult function.” Maj. William Steinke, the assistant operations officer with 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing’s Aviation Training System, participated in the exercise as an EA-6B Prowler flight leadership instructor. “One section of the Prowlers mission was to evaluate the others,” said Steinke. “This exercise was mostly to train the younger aircrew.” Razor Talon helps pilots and aircrew train for possible real-world operations, focusing on aerial offense, counter-aerial offense and armed reconnaissance in a joint service environment, Steinke said. “This is basically the single biggest thing that is available for us to train in,” he said. “If it wasn’t for this kind of training with the other services, we would have to go to Alaska.” Joint-service exercises expand Marine aircraft squadron’s ability to support a variety of possible real-world scenarios, according to Ward. “We have limited opportunities to train with other services,” said Ward. “They each present their own challenges and benefits you can’t simulate on your own, so this is great.”

The biggest key to success for this job is knowledge, said Pfc. Sebastian Martinez, an air support operations operator for MASS-1. “The more you understand about the aircraft and the equipment before you deploy, the easier it will be,” said Martinez. Martinez applied his training and experience from previous DASC drills in support of combat operations in Afghanistan and feels this training makes MASS-1 more mission capable. “The tempo that we practice the DASC drills back home are a faster speed than we actually experience while deployed,” said Martinez. “These drills really set us up for success.”

CHEF from page A1 was able to see them through with little to no conflict.” The food was awesome across the board, said Chief Warrant Officer 2 David J. Labonta, a food service officer with Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2. “This is the first Chef of the Quarter where we had Marines prepare food that they never made before,” said Lance Cpl. Rachyle A. Smith, the assistant training noncommissioned officer at the mess hall. “The purpose of Chef of the Quarter is to show Marines who don’t work in the chow hall the skills we have come to learn over the course of being here.” The competition shows the Marines’ ability to dress up presentation and make the taste, texture and color pop, said Smith. After the competition, the Marines received feedback and tips for improvement for future competitions. Winners of the Chef of the Quarter competitions advance to the Chef of the Year competition where they will vie for an opportunity to train at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y.

FAMILY from page A1 mentors 27 scouts, organizing and overseeing weekend campouts, merit badge clinics, trips and weekly community service projects. “It is so important to keep our children involved with our volunteering because they are the future of the community,” said Adkins-Setty. “If we teach them to serve now, the community will be a better place later.” The New Bern MAC recognizes an outstanding service member and their family each quarter for extraordinary military and community service. “I have a deep abiding respect for what he and his family do for the community,” said Sgt. Maj. Larry J. Harrington, VMR-1 sergeant major. Adkins-Setty performs his duties at work to the highest standard, said Harrington. No one can top what this family does, he said. “Thank you for the great inspiration you are to men and women. You represent that top ten percent, and I am proud to have you as part of VMR-1 and be able to say you are one of my Marines,” said Harrington.

scratch when stressed or threatened. Holiday feasts • As much as we would like to share our holiday feast with pets, it is better to refrain from including them in this tradition. According to Dr. Adrian Boe, a veterinarian at the Cherry Point Veterinary Treatment Facility, every effort should be made to keep pets away from the feast. “Gastrointestinal problems are one of the most common medical issues treated during the holiday season,” said Boe. “The best advice I can offer to pet owners is to refrain from feeding table scraps to your pets.” • Many popular ingredients can result in severe medical consequences for pets. Chocolate contains toxins which can lead to a variety of medical issues ranging from mild stomach irritation to seizures and death. Because many factors such as size, weight and age can further exacerbate complications, it is best to avoid chocolate altogether. • Grapes, raisins, nuts, onions or alcohol can cause digestive upset, organ failure and death if consumed in large quantities. Uncooked dough is also a concern as it can expand within the digestive tract and lead to bloat, a serious emergency medical condition. • Many foods are high in fat content, especially meat scraps and drippings, which can lead to vomiting and diarrhea due to pancreatitis; an extremely painful medical condition requiring emergency intervention. • Do not feed poultry bones to pets. They are brittle and splinter easily, potentially causing choking, mouth and throat trauma and intestinal tract damage. • Do not leave food on countertops. Counter surfing can lead to injury from falling objects or hot food. Emergency contact information • Maintain an updated list of emergency contact numbers that can be quickly retrieved. This list should include your veterinarian, an emergency after-hours clinic and Animal Poison Control. Following these simple tips during the holiday season will minimize the potential for dangerous and costly situations.

David Pearson, Junior Johnson, the late Buck Baker and the late Dale Earnhardt all have something in common besides being members of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. They all won races in the NASCAR division now known as Sprint Cup in a car numbered 3. Four other members of the Hall — Tim Flock, Cotton Owens, Fireball Roberts and Cale Yarborough — also drove cars numbered 3 in NASCAR’s elite division. All told, the No. 3 has had 73 different drivers since Bill Snowden made the debut run, finishing fifth at Occoneechee Speedway in Hillsboro, N.C., back in 1949. Fittingly, it was the third race ever for the circuit now known as Sprint Cup. Legendary driver Dick Rathmann got the first-ever win for No. 3 at Oakland, Calif., in 1954. He wound up winning a total of three, with victories at North Wilkesboro, N.C., and at Santa Fe Speedway in Willow Springs, Ill. They were his final three NASCAR victories. David Pearson got the first of his 105 Cup victories in a No. 3 Pontiac owned by Ray Fox, and Junior Johnson won nine times in cars numbered 3. But since the start of the 1976 season, the No. 3 has belonged to Richard Childress, who drove the car himself until midway through the 1981 season when Earnhardt took the wheel for the final 11 races. Earnhardt left to drive for Bud Moore at the end of that season, and Ricky Rudd took over in 1982 and delivered Childress’ No. 3 its first win at Riverside, Calif., in 1983. Earnhardt returned to Childress and the No. 3 for the start of the 1984 season, and got the first of his 67 wins in the car at Talladega in the 19th race of that season. He had won six championships in the No. 3, plus another for Rod Osterlund in a No. 2 Chevrolet, before he died in a crash in the 2001 Daytona 500. Earnhardt’s final victory in the No. 3, at Talladega in the fall of 2000, gave that car 97 career Cup victories, which is third behind the No. 11, with 203 wins, and the No. 43, with 198. Since Earnhardt’s death, the No. 3 has not been used in Cup, but it will return next season with Childress’ older grandson, Austin Dillon, driving. Dillon has used the No. 3, with the same shape of the number as his grandfather and Earn-

It was on his dirt Late Model cars as well as the truck he drove to a Camping World Truck Series championship in 2011 and the Nationwide Series car he drove to a title this year. The move, officially announced last week, has been common knowledge in NASCAR circles for months, and there has been little adverse reaction to Dillon using the car number most associated with the wildly popular Earnhardt. Most fans and insiders in the sport figured all along that the only appropriate candidates to bring back the No. 3 would be a member of either the Earnhardt or Childress family, and Dillon fits that bill. Since the earliest races of Dillon’s career, there’s been speculation that one day he’d drive in Cup in a car numbered just like the ones his grandfather and Earnhardt drove. And from the beginning, Childress indicated that he’d be in favor of it. When Dillon made his Super Late Model debut at a dirt track in Madison, N.C., years ago, Childress was asked about the number. “I think it has to be a special deal to bring back the No. 3,” he said that night

as he watched the youngster power his way around the clay oval. “And to me, this is a special deal.” Dale Earnhardt Jr. also has expressed support for Dillon and the No. 3 for years. And as one who is known for his great appreciation of the history of the sport, he understands better than most what car numbers mean in the entire history of NASCAR. “The number is more of a bank that you just deposit history into,” Earnhardt Jr. once said. “It doesn’t really belong to any individual.” For his rookie Cup campaign, Dillon will have veteran crew chief Gil Martin, who most recently worked with Kevin Harvick at Richard Childress Racing. Sponsorship will come from Dow and General Mills. Dillon said he’s ready for the challenges that come with racing in Cup and is proud to be making the move. “To get the opportunity to race in the Sprint Cup Series doesn’t come around very often,” he said. “To be able to compete in Cup and race for wins and championships is going to be awesome. “I’m going to give it my all every time out.”

NASCAR announces several promotions in key positions for 2014

Brent Dewar, whose career at General Motors saw him rise to senior vice president of global Chevrolet, has been named the chief operating officer of NASCAR. “Working closely with NASCAR over the last year, I’ve been very impressed by Brian [France]’s vision for NASCAR’s future and the

talented people he has put in place to achieve that vision,” Dewar said in a release announcing his hiring. “I have great passion for racing and I look forward to adding my experience, ideas and relationships throughout racing to help the team drive NASCAR’s growth and position it for a bright future.” NASCAR also announced that Steve Phelps, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, has been promoted to executive vice president, and that Steve O’Donnell, senior vice president, racing operations, has been promoted to executive vice president. NASCAR’s general counsel, Gary Crotty, has been promoted to chief legal officer/general counsel. Mike Helton remains NASCAR president, and as such, is in charge of all racing operations. NASCAR also announced last week that Jimmy Small will take over as president of Iowa Speedway, which recently was purchased by NASCAR. Small, 28, has worked for NASCAR for six years, most recently as a business and marketing liaison with teams and drivers in all three national series. Small also helped manage the implementation of the NASCAR Industry Action Plan, which includes efforts to attract younger fans to the sport. “I’m honored to be presented with this opportunity to help guide Iowa Speedway in the next chapter of its life,” Small said in a release about his new job. “We will continue fanning the intense passion for motorsports that is prevalent here, and do our best to showcase Iowa Speedway’s fast, exciting short-track racing in creative, fan-friendly ways.”

Sixteen teams participate in test sessions at Charlotte Motor Speedway

‘Salute to the King’ to mark Kinser’s final run for a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and a one-time Sprint Cup driver, announced last week that the 2014 season will be his final run for a championship. His final tour will be called the “Salute to the King” and begins in February on the short tracks of Florida. Kinser, 59, has 576 career Outlaw A-main victories and drives a car owned by Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart, who as a kid idolized his fellow Indiana racer. “I never missed an Outlaw show in the area when I was growing up,” Stewart said. “We waited for those nights like they were holidays. “It was incredible watching Steve race with Sammy (Swindell) and Doug (Wolfgang). He was our guy, being from Indiana, and when he won, it gave us all something to brag about. And he won a lot. “A few years ago, when we had the chance to get him to drive for [Tony Stewart Racing], it was like a dream come true. “When we got him on board, my goal was for him to drive for us for the remainder of his career. I’m really excited for him to go out and have a great season. He’s the best ever, and I couldn’t be more proud.” Kinser, who did not say he is retiring completely from racing, said he’s proud of what he’s been able to do over the years. “Racing with the Outlaws has been my life for almost 40 years,” he said. “It’s all I’ve known. My family has been around it. I’ve had the pleasure of running up and down the road racing all across this incredible country, and even in Canada, Mexico and Australia, with this series. “I knew it wasn’t going to last forever. I feel like we have a great team here capable of winning a lot of races and challenging for the championship this year.”

Speedway Benefits program off to strong start Forty-five days after longtime NASCAR promoter H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler announced his Speedway Benefits program for short-track promoters, he’s signed 300 tracks to the program that offers a way for promoters to work together to save money on input costs and attract more sponsorships. “This proves the idea was sound and greatly needed,” said Trip Wheeler, the 20-year-old son of the company founder who also is working on the program. “We are signing up tracks as fast as our seven-person staff can handle. You’d never know it, but Humpy is a great paralegal. While we will eventually get to 500 or even 1,000 tracks next year, the attendance our member tracks represent now makes us very appealing to global companies.”

When it comes to NASCAR testing, there’s always strength in numbers. Single-car runs are good for determining how a car will react in qualifying, but to learn about how cars behave in racing conditions takes lots of cars on the track at the same time. NASCAR got just that last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as 30 drivers representing 16 teams participated in a test designed to gather data that will lead to changes in the cars so that there can be more passing and more competitive racing on intermediate tracks, such as Charlotte. As in tests at Charlotte back in October, various configurations and adjustments were tried. Changes were made to ride heights, splitters, skirts and spoilers. At one point, holes were drilled in key parts in an attempt to come up with an aerodynamic package that allowed cars to run closer to each other and pass each other in race conditions. Four basic configurations were tested. “We saw progress today in terms of passing with each of the new configurations,” said Gene Stefanyshyn, NASCAR’s vice president of innovation and racing development. “One of the things that we learned and the reason we’re back here with so many cars is it is different when you have 30 cars or 25 cars out there versus the six [in October]. It was important for us to come back here with a field of cars that we did. It gave us a little bit different view on some of the answers. It’s put us in some different directions. We’ll just continue to work on it.” While the test is focused on improving competition on 1.5-mile tracks like Charlotte, the data could lead to closer racing on other tracks, Stefanyshyn said. “We’re using various metrics to look at that, like the first [place]to-fifth time differentials, the time differentials between the 10 fastest laps, those types of things,” he said. “Those are the types of metrics. There’s many more, but that’s just an example.” Among the ways NASCAR officials evaluated the test was by observing the “test” racing from a fan’s perspective and by asking for input from drivers.

NOTEBOOK

Gene Stefanyshyn, left, vice president of innovation and racing development, and Robin Pemberton, vice president of competition and racing development, discuss the recent test sessions at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “We have subjective data,” Stefanyshyn said. “We view it with our eye on the Jumbotron [giant TV screen]. We capture that video. “We have objective data, hard data, which we measure. We put that in. Then we have the views of the people who have the car in their hand. We have to take all that, triangulate it, try to find the alliance and what makes sense. “It’s not a perfect science, but we try to take all those inputs and utilize them in the triangulation to find the right answer. You will never get 100 percent agreement on everything. So really, you’re kind of looking for the 70 percent answer here that kind of leads you in the right direction.” Rules for the 2014 Sprint Cup cars are supposed to be released to race teams this week.

The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band pulled out all their bells and whistles while performing during their annual Christmas concert, “The Stars and Stripes for Christmas” at Cherry Point’s Two Rivers Theater Dec. 13. The concert featured several holiday classics and also included some jolly twists to old favorites.

Stars and Stripes for Christmas lifts holiday spirit LANCE CPL. VICTOR A. ARRIAGA MCAS CHERRY POINT

Members of the Cherry Point and local communities packed the Two Rivers Theater Friday for the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band’s annual Christmas concert, “The Stars and Stripes for Christmas.” This year’s concert featured traditional Christmas songs like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and a “Christmas Sing-a-Long” inviting the audience to sing along as the band played pieces like “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World.” As the concert went on in full swing, the band changed the setting by inviting the “Big Band,” a group consisting of members of the band’s jazz ensemble and enlisted conductor Gunnery Sgt. Michael Maschmeier, to conduct jazz pieces the band had prepared for unsuspecting audience members. Near the end of the concert, retired Master Sgt. Mark Munger narrated “T’was the Night Before Christmas,” an adaptation of the classic poem, while the band played along. As Munger finished reading the final line “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night,” bells could be heard in the distance as a familiar figure approached the audience with a hearty “Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!” Santa Claus weaved in and out of the cheering audience members, tossing candy to children and spreading holiday cheer as the band accompanied him playing “Sleigh Ride.” “You just never know where Santa Claus is,” said Staff Sgt. Terri Kopetzki, small ensemble leader for the band. “He’s always watching.” The classic Marine Corps concert finale is John Phillip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” but for the Christmas concert the band performed “The Stars and Stripes for Christmas,” the national march of the United States peppered with a mix of beloved Christmas melodies like “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Jingle Bells.” “We all know that no Marine band concert would be complete without concluding with our national march,” said Kopetzki. “However, a Marine band Christmas concert would be complete by concluding with the ‘Stars and Stripes for Christmas,’ which is the theme of the concert.” As the band wrapped things up, audience members gave a standing ovation to show their appreciation. “This is absolutely wonderful,” said Kathleen Marshall, who came out to enjoy the concert with her husband, retired Gunnery Sgt. Albert R. Marshall. “This concert is uplifting, enjoyable and great for kids.” Inviting the community to events like the “Stars and Stripes for Christmas” brings the community together, said Marshall. “We all have to work together to lift our holiday spirits up,” she said.

Since the 15th century, Christmas trees have been a staple of the holidays. For many, they are a symbol of eternal life. Cherry Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Trees for Troops event provided hundreds of trees to active-duty families Dec. 11. Trees for Troops, which began in 2005, has been hosted at Cherry Point by Marine Corps Community Services since 2006 said Beth McKenzie, the marketing director for MCCS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we donated about 250 trees to active duty military and their families,â&#x20AC;? said McKenzie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trees can sometimes run up to more than $200 so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lucky to be with this program for years and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just great.â&#x20AC;? Service members and their families lined up at Hancock Marina hours before the event kicked off to ensure they received a tree. Marine volunteers were on hand to help distribute the trees to families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just another way for us to show the Marines, Sailors and their families who work here that we appreciate what they do,â&#x20AC;? said Sgt. Maj. Benjamin B. Pangborn, Cherry Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sergeant major. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to be able to bring them something a little special for the holiday season.â&#x20AC;? Trees for Troops receives trees donated by Christmas tree farms around the country. The trees are then distributed to active duty service members and their families, said McKenzie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is a great event,â&#x20AC;? said Christopher Vasquez, husband of Petty Officer Third Class Ashley Vasquez, a corpsman at the Naval Health Clinic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people who donate these trees to families are incredibly generous.â&#x20AC;? Trees for Troops gets families into the Christmas spirit by bringing everyone together, said Vasquez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would hardly be the holidays without a Christmas tree,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Tree safety Each year, fire departments respond to an average of 210 fires caused by Christmas trees, according to athe National Fire Protection Association. For more information about fire safety during the holidays, visit http://bit.ly/safetree. â&#x20AC;˘ Place trees at least three feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure the tree is not blocking exits. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure lights are for indoor use and not outdoor. â&#x20AC;˘ Replace worn or broken lights. â&#x20AC;˘ Never use lit candles to decorate trees and always turn off your tree lights before leaving home or going to bed. â&#x20AC;˘ After Christmas, dispose of live trees when they begin to drop needles as dried-out trees are a fire hazard and should not be left in the home or garage.

Service members, families enjoy Winter Wonderland PFC. GRACE L. WALADKEWICS MCAS CHERRY POINT

More than 1,500 Marines, Sailors and family members from nine Cherry Point squadrons took part in the sixth annual Marine Aircraft Group 14 Winter Wonderland at the Marine Attack Squadron 223 hangar Dec. 12. The free event featured jump castles, games, crafts and a showing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Polar Express.â&#x20AC;? Gunny Claus was at the event as well talking to children, taking pictures and handing out presents. Free food and beverages were also available for those in attendance, said Michael McGuinness, the family readiness officer with MAG-14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keeping this event free to MAG-14 families shows them that our command team and their individual unit commands care a great deal about them and that they are so very appreciated and valued in those commands,â&#x20AC;? said McGuinness. MAG-14 is comprised of Marines who fly and maintain a variety of aircraft in aviation missions around the world. This event was a rare opportunity for service members from all parts of the unit to come together and strengthen unit cohesion while having a good time, said McGuinness. Members of Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 2, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 14, VMAs 223, 231 and 542, Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadrons 1 and 2, Marine Attack Training Squadron 203 and MAG-14 Personnel Support Detachment

14 came together and found the holiday spirit at the gathering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of our families within MAG-14 get to know each other,â&#x20AC;? through events like Winter Wonderland said McGuinness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They serve together in various units and have friends from other units as well, so this is an opportunity for them to come together in a larger, more robust event.â&#x20AC;? For Cpl. John Armistead, a refrigeration mechanic with MWHS-2, events like Winter Wonderland reassure Marines that their units do care about them and their families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has brought Marines together outside of work and is building great camaraderie,â&#x20AC;? said Armistead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that this event was organized for service members and their families for free really shows that we are being taken care of more than just through what is required at work.â&#x20AC;? Amanda Wylie, wife of Cpl. Patrick Wylie, an aircraft maintenance administrative specialist with VMA-223, attended the event with her children. For Wylie, events like Winter Wonderland bring a sense of home to spouses whose husbands are deployed and Marines who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t home with their families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen through these events that MAG-14 hosts that they do try to make time for family through fun, moral-boosting events,â&#x20AC;? said Wylie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They understand that getting together with family is very important and they do a great job of keeping relationships strong, even during deployments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;

Keep pets safe during holiday season MICHELLE HIGHTER MCAS CHERRY POINT

The holiday season is an exciting time of year with family gatherings, beautiful decorations and an abundance of delicious food. Naturally many want to include beloved pets in the festivities, but many holiday items and treats are potentially harmful to pets. Wonderful holiday moments can quickly become dangerous situations, resulting in injury or illness and costly veterinary expenses. As you celebrate, use the following tips to keep your pet safe and healthy: Christmas trees â&#x20AC;˘ Place trees in areas inaccessible to pets. Stabilize your tree by anchoring it to the floor and ensure the tree stand is the proper size to support your tree to avoid the possibility of a curious or playful pet knocking it over. â&#x20AC;˘ Pine needles, from live or artificial trees, can puncture the intestinal lining or cause diarrhea and vomiting if ingested. Vacuum or sweep around the tree often to keep debris to a minimum. â&#x20AC;˘ Avoid hanging food items such as popcorn or candy canes, as they tend to enhance temptation. â&#x20AC;˘ Glass or metal ornaments can cause trauma to the mouth and limbs and should be positioned higher on the tree. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not use tinsel or yarn to decorate, especially if you have kittens. Kittens are naturally intrigued by these items, which can cause choking or intestinal tract blockage. â&#x20AC;˘ Packing materials such as Styrofoam and ribbons can pose choking hazards. Many of these materials also contain toxic ingredients. Use the same precautions with childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toys that may result in similar injuries. â&#x20AC;˘ It is best to adhere loose Christmas lights or extension cords to the wall or floor to minimize injury. A curious cat can easily become entangled in a string of lights. Puppies, who naturally like to chew, are at a high risk of electrocution if they chew on lights or electrical cables. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep holiday plants out of reach of your pets. Holly and mistletoe are extremely toxic and it is best to keep these plants out of your home entirely if you own pets. Lilies, poinsettia and hibiscus plants are mildly toxic but can cause gastrointestinal upset.

Winter climate â&#x20AC;˘ Do not leave your pets exposed to winter weather conditions. Although avoiding extremely low temperatures is common sense, it is important to realize that prolonged exposure to cold and wet conditions, even in milder temperatures, can have the same medical effects. Prolonged exposure can lead to severe medical conditions, such as hypothermia, as easily as a shorter exposure to more extreme conditions. Always provide your pets with a warm, dry environment during winter. Parties and visitors â&#x20AC;˘ Extra activity and the excitement can lead to stress in your pets. Since many pets do not adapt well to change, it is important to maintain your petsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daily routine. Keeping feeding and exercise times on schedule can help maintain your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of security amid the extra activity surrounding the holidays. â&#x20AC;˘ During holiday parties or family gatherings keep pets in a safe area, away from exits and entryways to prevent them from getting out the house. â&#x20AC;˘ Be cautious of the interactions between your pets and guests to avoid a potential bite incident, especially with young children who may not know how to interact safely with animals. Even the friendliest animal can bite or See PETS page A7
