April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

It Only Takes a Minute

It only takes a minute for your child to experience a life-threatening event such as Shaken Baby Syndrome or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Shaken Baby Syndrome typically occurs after a child experiences a head trauma by falling, being hit or forcefully shaken. SIDS has no symptoms or warning signs. Babies who die of SIDS seem healthy before being put to bed. If your child has one or more of the signs below, get help immediately.

It only takes a minute to reach out and offer your assistance to a parent who needs help. It only takes a minute of looking away for a child to get seriously injured. It only takes a minute to take a deep breath and not strike your child in anger. It only takes a minute to call for help. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAPM) and during this month we ask that you take time to reflect on how we can end child abuse within the military community. Child abuse is an unfortunate reality that has a profound effect on its victims. It affects the child, the family, the Marine or Sailor, the community and the mission.

Signs of Shaken Baby Syndrome: • Lethargy/decreased muscle tone • Extreme irritability • Decreased appetite, poor feeding or vomiting for no apparent reason • No smiling or vocalization • Poor sucking or swallowing • Difficulty breathing • Seizures • Head or forehead appears larger than usual or a soft-spot on head appears to be bulging • Inability to lift head • Inability of eyes to focus or track movement or unequal size of pupils

It is important to understand child abuse, how to prevent it, recognize it and the resources available to help families when it occurs. Every Marine, Sailor and civilian employee in the Tri-Command is considered a mandated reporter which means if you even suspect child abuse, you must call PMO at 228-6710. Our children cannot speak up for themselves and we must be their voice! Look for flyers posted around base to help you become better informed.

The New Parent Support Program offers Baby Boot Camp classes to expectant parents with a focus on prevention and awareness of SIDS and Shaken Baby Syndrome. We also teach parents how to cope with and sooth crying babies.

The national symbol for CAPM is the blue pinwheel. The pinwheel reminds us of a child-like sense of wonder and represents the happy, healthy and full lives that all children deserve. We will be having a pinwheel spotting contest throughout the month of April. Each week we will move our giant pinwheel somewhere within the Tri-Command. Once you spot it, go to the MCCS South Carolina Behavioral Health Branch Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ MCCSBehavioralHealthBranch, and tell us where you found it. All correct entries will be entered into a weekly drawing for a prize pack! We also hope that while looking for the pinwheel you will talk with your children about safety using some of the tips from our Facebook page. It’s a great way to have fun as a family and promote this important conversation.

For more information about NPSP, call 466-0082. You may also contact Cindy Neuhierl, NPSP Administrative Specialist, at 466-0082 or neuhierlcr@usmc-mccs.org.

For more information, please contact Ginny Wescott, Family Advocacy Program Prevention & Education Specialist, at virginia.c.wescott@ usmc-mccs.org or call 228-4110.

Signs of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: • Change in breathing pattern • Choking/gagging • Change in skin color - blue or pale • Blood in nose or mouth • A seizure episode

New Requirements for Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS)

The Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS) is a week-long seminar designed to prepare you for your return back into civilian life as a quality citizen and ensures that you have the tools needed for a smooth transition. Service Members who are transitioning out of the military, whether it’s separation, demobilization or retirement, need to be aware of the changes regarding career readiness standards and requirements. If you went to TRS prior to November 2013 chances are you are unaware of a new step needed to meet career readiness standards before you can check-out. From the effective date of 1 October 2013, all service members are required to complete a Capstone prior to their End of Active Service (EAS).

Capstone is the culminating activity in the transition process and verifies that you meet Career Readiness Standards (CRS) and have a viable plan for transition into civilian life. During your Capstone, you’ll meet with your Personal and Professional Development Advisor who will provide you with contact information to agency partners such as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Labor (DOL). Prior to your meeting with your Commander or designee the advisor will ensure that you have the needed documentation of a completed DoD standardized Individual Transition Plan, post separation budget, eBenefits premium account registration, career assess-

Another change to TRS allows you to elect an optional transition pathway: Employment, Entrepreneurship, Higher Education or Career Technical. Each pathway would provide you with invaluable information you may need for your career choice. You may take more than one. Spouses are welcome and encouraged to accompany Service Members during TRS. Service Members can receive more information about TRS and its changes by contacting their corresponding Transition Assistance Program office at 228-4574 (MCRD Parris Island) or 228-7701 (MCAS Beaufort).

LIBRARY READING LIST Robert Ludlum’s™ The Janson Option by Paul Garrison

Hunting the President: Threats, Plots and Assassination Attempts –From FDR to Obama by Mel Ayton (MCN 364.1524 Ayt)

Once a Consular Ops legend, Paul Janson now spends his days taking the occasional independent assignment but only if it contributes to the greater good. His latest assignment is trying to rescue the wife of an oil executive from Somali pirates. But there's more to the situation than meets the eye.

Our modern presidents have faced and survived many threats. Government reports, court records, FBI files and other sources reveal various attempts on presidents’ lives that were either quickly forgotten or never brought to light.

Stone Cold (A Joe Pickett Novel) by C.J. Box

James Gandolfini: The Real Life of the Man Who Made Tony Soprano by Dan Bischoff (MCN B)

No one knows what goes on at the isolated ranch that no one seems to visit. Sent to investigate rumors of murder and determine the truth about the women said to live there, game warden Joe Pickett discovers there are two other men living up at that ranch. One is a stone-cold killer. The other is a new man with whom Joe is well acquainted and who frightens him more than the killer.

James Gandolfini: The Real Life of the Man Who Made Tony Soprano is the first biography of the actor who famously portrayed a New Jersey mobster in the HBO series “The Sopranos” and who died in June 2013. Recent interviews with the actor’s family, friends, HBO executives and others paint a portrait of his commitment to his craft and explore his approach to playing the mobsters and villains that found a place in American hearts.

Missing You by Harlan Coben

Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City’s Courageous Recovery and the Epic Hunt for Justice by Scott Helman and Jenna Russell (MCN 363.3259)

The emotions ignored by NYPD Detective Kat Donovan resurface when she sees a picture of her ex-fiancé, Jeff, who shattered her heart 18 years ago. Kat’s hope for a second-chance is quickly dashed when she reaches out to Jeff through his profile and uncovers a conspiracy in which monsters prey on the vulnerable. With the body count rising, Kat races to find answers before anyone else dies, all while questioning everyone she has ever loved.

One year later two journalists recount the details of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that shook a city and a nation. Long Mile Home tells the story of the bombers’ preparations, the race itself, emergency response efforts, law enforcement personnel response and how the world reacted in the wake of the tragedy.

The Bootlegger (An Isaac Bell Adventure) by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir by Toni Braxton (MCN B Braxton)

World War I is over and Prohibition is the law. Isaac Bell’s boss and close friend, Joseph Van Dorn, is shot during a rum-running vessel chase and he swears to find those responsible. When a witness to the shooting is killed in a manner befitting the Russian secret police, Bell discovers that these are no ordinary criminals and takes on a team of Bolsheviks intent on overthrowing the U.S. government.

Toni reveals the role that key life-changing events have played in her personnel life, health and career. Unbreak My Heart details her journey toward wholeness and how she conquers the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in her path. The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014 by Carlotta Gall (MCN 958.1047)

NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson and Marshall Karp

Carlotta Gall has reported from Afghanistan and Pakistan during almost the entirety of the American invasion starting shortly after 9/11. She provides firsthand accounts of Afghani politicians, Taliban warlords, American generals and others to reveal the story behind the decade American troops fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

When a wealthy woman is found murdered and tied to a Central Park carousel horse, Detectives Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald of the elite task force NYPD Red are dispatched. While searching to discover what is behind the murder, Kylie hides a secret that could threaten the biggest case of their careers.
