The halls of Capitol Hill seemed to be an unlikely place to find the nation’s underwater Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team, but it was here where Navy EOD technicians showcased their unique capabilities to members of Congress during the 4th annual EOD Caucus on Capitol Hill, June 11. EOD Day on the Hill highlights the joint efforts of the EOD community across the services. This year, Sailors were joined by Airmen, Soldiers, Marines, law enforcement, and members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “This caucus touches on a very important segment of our military,” said Rep. Susan Davis, D-Calif., co-chair of the Congressional EOD Caucus. “It’s one that has been forged in strength in over a decade of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.” More than a dozen Sailors from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 2, EODMU

6, EODMU 12, and Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head EOD Technology Division showcased the Navy EOD’s unique equipment and capabilities before Congressional members and staff. The conference area was filled with technical exhibitions that emphasized different areas of the EOD mission. Guests were treated to many hands-on demonstrations that included bomb suits, tool displays, and robotics. Navy EOD technicians answered questions about their underwater robot system. “It keeps us out of the water, and away from any potential threat when it comes to diving,” said Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician 1st Class Nathan Hale, assigned to EODMU 6. “Our team is able to ‘I.D. and verify’ without coming in direct contact by using the robot,” said Hale, who explained Navy EOD’s capability of countering underwater mines, and all other types of underwater ordnance.

Orders given for Bush, Mesa Verde amid growing violence in Iraq American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the amphibious transport dock ship USS Mesa Verde into the Arabian Gulf, Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said June 16. The ship has completed its transit through the Strait of Hormuz, the admiral said in a statement. “Its presence in the Gulf adds to that of other U.S. naval ships already there – including the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush – and provides the commander in chief additional options to protect American citizens and interests in Iraq, should he choose to use them,” said Kirby. Bush was accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea and the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun. Mesa Verde is capable of conducting a variety of quick-reaction and crisis response operations, the press secretary said, and it carries a complement of MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft. The ship is part of the USS Bataan Amphibious Ready Group, which departed Norfolk in February and is operating in the region on a routine deployment to support maritime security operations.

Suspect in Navy stabbing to remain in pre-trial conďŹ nement Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs NORFOLK

The Sailor accused of the June 6 stabbing of another Sailor at the Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads Portsmouth Annex will remain in pre-trial conďŹ nement at the Naval Consolidated Brig Chesapeake, a Navy Initial Review OfďŹ cer (IRO) decided, June 13. Petty Officer 3rd Class Wilbur G. Harwell appeared at an Initial Review Hearing at the brig and is being held in temporary administrative segregation, which is standard operating procedure for new detainees. A court date for Harwell has not been set. An IRO decides if there is probable cause to conďŹ ne a service member. Factors include if the ofďŹ cer believes the accused committed a serious offense or is considered to be a ight risk. Federal ofďŹ cials turned Harwell over

to the Navy following a custody hearing in Norfolk, June 12. Harwell was taken to the brig where he will remain pending charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) has not completed its investigation of the incident and Harwell has not yet been charged. The UCMJ generally requires a suspect to be arraigned within 120 days. The military justice system, similar to the civilian justice system, is based on the principle of innocent until proven guilty. The victim of the assault, Petty OfďŹ cer 2nd Class Justin D. Powell, has been

upgraded to very good condition and remains at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth. NCIS agents say Harwell ed after stabbing Powell in a barracks room. After the assault, agents said Powell exited the barracks and made his way to the Navy Exchange area for help. Agents said they believe another service member may have assisted Harwell in leaving the installation before the gates were closed, driving him to Virginia Beach where he was apprehended at an oceanfront hotel about 5 p.m. on June 6 by Navy, local and federal ofďŹ cials. Agents say there was enough time for Harwell to leave the base before the incident was reported. Emergency services received the report of the stabbing at 8:33 a.m. on June 6. Two minutes later, the gates to the installation were closed and personnel ordered to shelter in place for more than eight hours while Navy, local, state and federal law enforcement agencies conducted a room-by-room search on the installation for the suspect. The identity of the service member being questioned and further details of the investigation have not been released. The service member being questioned by NCIS agents has not been charged.

276 SAILORS ADVANCE ON USS TRUMAN

cess of my department,” said Hodges. “Treating people with dignity and respect, setting hard goals and celebrating when a person accomplishes their goals makes the team happy. They do a great job of staying motivated and getting the job done, and I just try to help out when they ask for it.” Hodges and Pelzer both agreed that providing guidance and mentorship for junior officers and enlisted Sailors is essential to being a successful senior chief petty officer. “I like to give Sailors the advice that was given to me by my mentor,” said Hodges. “Live by the four H’s – be healthy, physically and mentally; be hungry, for the next challenge and strive to get past it; be hard, be the example and be the kind of example you want to be; and be humble, thankful for the opportunities that you are given, and if you don’t like something, then strive to change it.” In addition to advancing the 19 senior chiefs, Roth frocked 142 Sailors to the next pay grade during the ceremony. In all, 276 Truman Sailors were advanced during the spring Navywide advancement cycle.

Nineteen chief petty officers were advanced to the rank of senior chief petty officer aboard aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), June 6. The Sailors learned of their selections from a 1MC call made by Capt. Bob Roth, Truman’s commanding officer. “I didn’t know I was selected until they read my name,” said Senior Chief Aviation Support Equipment Technician Marvin Pelzer. “I jumped up. I was so happy, and before I knew it, I was shaking everyone’s hand thanking them because I knew it wouldn’t be possible without them.” Pelzer believes the support he received around the ship encouraged him to try hard and ultimately led to his selection. He was not the only newly advanced senior chief petty officer who attributed his success to others. Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman Benjamin Hodges said his Dental Department team played a big role in his advancement. “The only thing I can think of that set me apart from other chiefs in my rate was the suc-

TR Sailors simulate danger to send safety message By MCSN William Spears USS Theodore Roosevelt Public Affairs

USS ROOSEVELT, AT SEA

The aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt’s (CVN 71) Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) held an event in the ship’s hangar bay, June 8, to highlight the dangers of drinking and driving. Sailors wore goggles that simulated the effects of alcohol on a person’s vision while driving a tricycle through a series of cones. “Not only has this event been a morale booster, but it has been an eye-opening experience,” said Sonar Technician (Surface) 2nd Class Dimensia Streeter, a CSADD volunteer and participant in the event. “This has shown Sailors how bad drinking really affects their vision.”

MC3 Karl Anderson Sailors heave a mooring line on the fantail of the USS Truman (CVN 75).

MC2 Chris Brown Cmdr. Jeff Craig (seated), executive officer of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (TR) (CVN 71), participates in a drunk driving simulation course, hosted by the Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD), aboard TR.

Sailors drove the course until they made a mistake and were then pulled over by a CSADD volunteer and given a mock field sobriety test. “Not only are Sailors able to have fun, but they are able to see how dangerous it is to drive under the influence,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Equipment) 1st Class Craig Pasqual, from the Safety Department aboard TR. The event also reminded Sailors that if they are going to drink to do so responsibly. “The event helps to reinforce the Safe Ride program and to influence

Sailors helping Sailors,” said Pasqual. “It reminds Sailors to be responsible when drinking and look out for their shipmates. If they are going to drink, use a designated driver or make use of their Safe Ride card.” Sailors can use TR’s Safe Ride program to get a free cab ride home from anywhere in the Hampton Roads area. TR’s Chief’s Mess funds the program as a way to deter Sailors from drinking and driving. Sailors interested in receiving a Safe Ride card can contact their divisional safety petty officers.

Volunteers ‘Clean the Bay’ at Dam Neck Beach By MCSN Kayla King NAS Oceana Public Affairs

VIRGINIA BEACH

Military, civilians and family members from Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana and Dam Neck Annex participated in the 26th annual Clean the Bay Day (CTBD), June 7. Personnel from Oceana and Dam Neck were among the approximately 6,000 volunteers across the Chesapeake Bay who worked to ensure clean, safe beaches and waterways for everyone to enjoy. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) website reports that volunteers removed about 110,000 pounds

of debris from approximately 250 sites, including the Dam Neck beach, and along more than 450 miles of streams and shoreline in just three hours. “It is a great opportunity to give back to the community and the chance to keep Virginia Beach clean,” said NAS Oceana CTBD coordinator Sr. Chief Fire Controlman (SW) Jeffrey Mullins, leading chief petty officer of Oceana’s Administrative Department. “I wanted to give more to the community and be involved,” said Aviation Maintenance Administration 3rd Class Steven Taylor, attached to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 32. Taylor

just arrived at VFA-32 and said he plans to do more volunteer work like CTBD in the future. The clean up began at 9 a.m. with the temperature already nearing 80 degrees. Seventy-five volunteers were sectioned into teams positioned on the dunes. Each team went their separate ways down the sides of the dunes. When meeting up with another team, they would then line the beaches and back track to ensured the entire Dam Neck beach was examined for trash and debris. About 300 pounds of trash was collected off the beach and dunes at Dam Neck. Mullins said that a lot of plastic

was discovered on the beaches, something that was very commonly reported at all sites across the Chesapeake Bay. “I think that the event turned out very well,” said Mullins. “Everyone that came out was very excited to be there. We have a wonderful amount of community-minded Sailors here at Oceana. It was a privilege for me to help out with

these model citizens.” This year’s theme was “Clean Water Blueprint.” According to CBF, the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint is tightly focused on reducing sediment, nitrogen and phosphorous pollution, and since Clean the Bay Day focuses on reducing litter pollution, they both succeed on some of the very same principles.

CBF hosts TBD annually on the first Saturday in June as part of its mission to ensure the bay has clear water, free of impacts from toxic contaminants, and with healthy oxygen levels. The event is a cost-effective way to remove litter from the waterways and shorelines and provide upkeep for the environment.

Six Sailors from the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln’s (CVN 72) CSADD (Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions) helped students at Passage Middle School enjoy their field day, June 9. Sailors joined with teachers from the school to help the students through many activities, including an obstacle course. Electronics Technician 3rd Class Meg Tate said her day at the school was all about helping others. “What a fun way to spend a day running around with obstacle courses, three-legged races and soccer,” said Tate.

“The teachers were very appreciative of the Sailors from the Lincoln volunteering for the school and said that they were very grateful for the extra hands.” CSADD event coordinator, Religious Programs Specialist 3rd Class Matthew Eviston, said that Lincoln was invited back for a second time this year because of their great interaction with teachers and children of Passage Middle School. “Passage Middle School was so pleased with Lincoln CSADD’s last community relations visit that they actually reached out to me and requested our help again,” said Eviston. “It worked out perfect for CSADD since we were looking for an opportunity to par-

ticipate in more [community events] this month.” Eviston said that both students and staff appreciated Lincoln’s participation. “Parents, students, teachers, everyone who came in contact with us expressed sincere gratitude at the fact we took the time to be there with them,” said Information Systems Technician 3rd Class Stephen Weyant. The field day helped build morale and gave Lincoln Sailors a respite from work. “To be acknowledged and appreciated as a positive influence for this community here in the Newport News area speaks [to] the significance of events like this conducted by CSADD,” said Weyant. “I was humbled to be a part.”

PUNTA GORDA, BELIZE

As U.S. Forces arrived in Belize, it took a mere 48 hours to have more than two bathrooms, 17 tents, a galley and walkways setup. Having everything needed for sustainability, there was still something missing to complete the Southern Partnership Station 2014 (SPS-JHSV 14) setup ashore, and that was communications. Included in the variety of Adaptive Force Package units supporting SPSJHSV 14 ashore, there is a specific unit called Joint Communications Support Element (JCSE). JCSE is composed of joint active duty, Guard and reserve personnel who can globally deploy within hours of notification to provide communications packages tailored to the specific needs of a fully joint task force headquarters and to a joint special operations task force. In one hour after arriving to the camp site, U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Julius Fairfax and U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt.

As a few days went by ashore, Fairfax and Valenzuela came across Belize Defense Force (BDF) Lance Cpl. Alberto Cal working on a cat 5 cable, and conversation led them to find out that the BDF Internet was down. The combined expertise of the JCSE team and Cal, allowed them to begin working together to troubleshoot the problem. “It was a great experience working with the U.S. troops,” said Cal. “It helped a lot, because even though we have similar knowledge, we don’t have as many tools as the U.S. military has, so it felt good to work together.”

U.S. Navy medical officers perform checkups on patients at San Pedro Columbia Satellite Clinic during Southern Partnership Station 2014 (SPSJHSV 14).

Sharing ideas for one common goal was the highest priority for the team to get the BDF communications up and running. “We are all subject matter experts at what we do even though the BDF has a different way of doing things, we combined our knowledge and got the job done,” said Fairfax. After identifying the problem with the BDF Internet, it took the team of three less than 20 minutes to correct the deficiencies. “It’s a great feeling being able to join together and exchange ideas with one another,” said Valenzuela. “Not only did we come to do our mission, but we were able to assist their communication team unexpectedly.” The U.S. military will continue to spend time working with host nation partners to strengthen relationships and fortify joint interoperability in support of SPS-JHSV 14. U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet employ maritime forces in cooperative maritime security operations in order to maintain access, enhance interoperability, and build enduring partnerships that foster regional security in the U.S. Southern Command area of responsibility.

It’s a great feeling being able to join together and exchange ideas with one another.” - U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Mario Valenzuela

SYMPOSIUM | Continued from front This year’s theme, “Why Do You Serve,” offered opportunities for personal and professional development with a focus on the issues of retention, professional growth, and reasons behind why women continue to serve in the military. Speakers included: Vice Adm. Bill Moran, Chief of Naval Personnel; Vice Adm. Michelle Howard, Deputy CNO for Operations, Plans and Strategy; Rear Adm. Cari B. Thomas, commander, 14th Coast Guard District; retired Rear Adm. Mary E. Landry, U.S. Coast Guard Director of Incident Management and Preparedness Policy; Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe; and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (SW/AW) Mike Stevens. The opening remarks were words of wisdom from 34year veteran Thomas. “I want you to do something that you probably don’t do and that’s invest in yourself. We’re very strict about investing in our time at work. We’re good at investing time in our significant others. For those of you who are moms, you make sure to invest time with your kids. But we have a very hard time investing

in ourselves so that is really my challenge to you for the next couple of days. Many of us have this gene that is the ‘can’t say no gene’ and I want you to learn how to take some time for yourself,” said Thomas. “It is in our nature to be caregivers and want to help in every way. You have to find a good work-life balance. When I take off this uniform at the end of my career, I still want to be married and I still want to be a mom. I have an alarm clock on my desk set for 5:30 p.m. I have to have a really good reason to stay beyond that time.” The full day of mentorship continued with more uplifting words of empowerment from Landry. The 31-year veteran challenged attendees to respect each other’s diversity; respect what they all bring to the forum and share it with each other, as well as, save a few women at the symposium who were thinking of leaving the military. She challenged the women to not allow themselves to continue to be typecast. Vice Adm. Michelle Howard, Deputy Chief of Navy Operations for Operations, Plans, and Strategy, was the Navy keynote speaker on the first day of the conference. Howard spoke of isolation and how to overcome it in order to be a successful leader. “Pioneering women [like Capt. Dorothy Stratton, organizer of the Coast Guard Women’s Reserve; Maj.

Robert Katz, Vella Gulf’s commanding officer. “This was an excellent opportunity to work closely with our NATO allies, increase our levels of interoperability, and continue to foster enduring friendships.” Vella Gulf conducted port visits in Varna, Bulgaria, and Constanta, Romania. In Bulgaria, Vella Gulf Sailors hosted the Bulgarian Navy

Chief of Staff, Capt. Kosta Andreev, and met cadets from the Bulgarian Naval Academy for a game of soccer. During Vella Gulf’s stop in Romania, the ship hosted U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and the Fleet Commander of the Romanian Navy. Vella Gulf Sailors also helped remodel a children’s home and toured the Romanian Maritime Museum. Vella Gulf, homeported in Norfolk, also completed an underway engagement with the Turkish Navy, June 10, to build understanding and strengthen the bonds between the two navies.

EOD |

Continued from front The Navy’s underwater bomb team is the only EOD force that conducts mine countermeasures and keeps the world’s sea lanes clear from mines and explosive threats. As the day progressed, attendees became aware of the joint-capability nature of Navy EOD with other services on the battlefield. Navy EOD’s airborne and underwater capabilities allow it to be the “EOD force of choice” to support Special Operations including Navy SEALs and Army Special Operations Forces (SOF). “We rely on your skill and bravery,” said Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Ark., co-chair of the Congressional EOD Caucus and a former Army EOD tech-

nician. “I want my colleagues to know that the training that you take and execute on the field is dependent on the resources we have to equip you. We can’t be complacent, and allow our force to dwindle, our mission is to spread the word.” As the war in Afghanistan draws down, Navy EOD remains ready and relevant to combat explosive hazards both on land and at sea. “Perhaps in a few years, we won’t be thinking about IED’s,” said Rep. Susan Davis, D-Calif., co-chair of the EOD Caucus. “But I bet we’ll be thinking about something else, these are the warriors that we’ll call upon, to render safe any weapon that our enemy chooses to use against us.”

killed in Iraq in 2006; and Capt. Joy Bright Hancock, leader of WAVES] have already figured this out,” she said. “You’ve got to commit to the journey; you’ve got to travel light; you better have stamina; you better have a sense of humor; and you better stay connected.” While the name of the symposium could infer that it’s meant for women only, there were a handful of male Sailors in attendance. For one male attendee, he related the importance of males attending symposiums to gain a better understanding of the women who work beside him each and every day. “I think the symposium is very important because not only are women a huge contributor to the Navy, they are

a force who are going to continue to grow. I aspire to be a great leader one day, so getting more perspectives that hold diversity of thought is very important to achieving that,” said Ensign Pete Fovargue, an officer at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard Naval Facilities Engineering Command. He stated that the symposium was “an awesome opportunity to put myself out there to see things from the women’s perspective of what it’s like to be in the Navy.” One of the key topics at the symposium is a daily key topic throughout the Navy – retention. With enlisted retention always on the forefront, Moran took time during three breakout sessions to focus on retention of enlisted Sailors, junior officers (O2-O4)

and senior officers (O5-O6), and answer questions Sailors wanted to address. “The roles of women have expanded in the Navy. We don’t have enough women to fill the roles, especially at the chief petty officer level,” said Moran. “We want to bring in a lot more women, but we need to work to keep the women that we recruit.” “The Navy leadership recognizes that we need to be able to accommodate more senior enlisted females at sea,” said Fleet Master Chief April D. Beldo. “We are working to ensure we can safely and accurately accommodate more of them on ships. Once we get there, and we will get there, we will begin to see more and more senior enlisted females fill-

ing those positive leadership roles on the waterfront.” One highlight of the conference was the Mentorship Meet Up Session. During the session, Marine Sgt. Jennifer E. Rivera, an intelligence specialist at Fort Meade, Md., said she attended the symposium to get a fresh perspective on how to help other females overcome some stereotypes that exist and possibly give her male counterparts a new perspective on the women they serve next to each and every day.

Navy, Coast Guard capture semi-submersible drug vessel in Pacific; seize $107 million of cocaine By Ensign Sarah Lovelace USS Ingraham Public Affairs

USS INGRAHAM, AT SEA

ST2 Jeremy P. West Sailors aboard the guided-missile frigate USS Ingraham (FFG 61) hoist packages of cocaine seized from self-propelled semi-submersible.

Working with the Colombian Navy and Air Force, U.S. Navy and Coast Guard forces aboard USS Ingraham (FFG 61) captured a semi-submersible vessel packed with $107 million worth of cocaine in the Eastern Pacific in May. The seizure of such a vessel – classified as a self-propelled semi-submersible – is a significant feat for U.S. and multinational forces that conduct yearround counter illicit trafficking operations in the waters off Latin

America and the Caribbean. Semi-submersibles are commonly used by illicit traffickers to move large amounts of drugs and other contraband because the vessel’s low profile makes it extremely difficult to detect at sea. U.S. and regional partner nation law enforcement agencies rarely spot a semi-submersible on the high seas. And when they do, capturing a semi-submersible is very difficult since the crews often attempt to scuttle and sink the craft to dispose of evidence. The recent semi-submersible seizure followed this script.

Sailors stationed in Bahrain, Guam and Hawaii are wearing the Lightweight Navy Working Uniform (LNWU) Type I as part of an eightweek conformance test focusing on performance, durability and appearance from May 28 to June 12. More than 230 Sailors received two prototype versions. The uniforms have two different fabric configurations and include a front tab with rank insignia to identify the LNWU as a test version and will not be part of the final uniform design. Sailors in warmer climates, who will remain at their command for more than a year, were chosen for the test. “This is a really important step in the evolution of the lightweight NWU,” said U.S. Pacific Fleet Master Chief Marco Ramirez. “The direct feedback from these weartesting Sailors will help determine the direction the Navy takes.” Ramirez said it was important to be selective when choosing participants like security forces and shipboard Sailors to fit test the LNWU to get accurate results. Although the conformance test is still in its infancy, Sailors are already feeling the difference. “They’re [LNWU] more comfortable than the old ones,” said Seaman Autumn Cozzens, a Deck department Sailor aboard USS Chafee (DDG 90). “I’ve already noticed that they feel lighter and cooler when I’m working outside.” Cozzens was also surprised with the durability of the LNWU and the ability to get paint out of her uniform without difficulty or color fading. Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Christian Mountain, also assigned to Chafee, noted an improvement in the comfort of the LNWUs. “They’re [LNWU] significantly lighter. I carry boxes all day and it helps a lot because I can literally feel the breeze through the uniform when I’m outside,” he said. Sailors will make daily log inputs in a user evaluation booklet and complete a questionnaire at the midpoint and conclusion of the wear test via an online survey and will be required to participate in a unit level focus group. “I want to thank the Navy for listening, that’s part of how we grow and assess what’s not working,” said Ramirez. “We heard the Sailors and here’s what we’re doing to make it better ... it’s a win-win for everybody.”

DIRTY LITTLE RESUME FUN By Jacey Eckhart Military Spouse Contributor

Take a look at my resume, will you? Over the course of a year I get a lot of resumes from military wives seeking feedback. I notice the same things over and over. I see resumes that are too long, have pushed out margins, boast a font size tiny enough to fit on a grain of rice. I often can’t even tell what kind of job the person is seeking. Slogging through a resume like that isn’t resume fun. It is the resume equivalent of a mud-miler. I think we spouses have the wrong idea about a resume. We think that first, ultra-complete, sweat-drenched, three-page resume is a finished document that someone will read and see exactly where we fit into their organization. So we should put in everything, right? Wrong. The finished resume is really like a big business card. It is focused. It is functional. It is read in literally six seconds by the people in your network (where 80 percent of all jobs in America are found). The Dirty Little Resume – that document that everyone should throw together whether they are actively job seeking or not – isn’t meant for public sharing. The Dirty Little Resume is a thing meant to organize your thinking. To push back fear. To help you figure out just what you want. How to write a Dirty Little Resume: 1. Throw together a work history. This isn’t a neat, clean, perfect little document. This is a straight shot here-is-all-the-work-I-haveever-done – paid and unpaid. Lay the whole thing out chronologically starting from the minute you graduated from high school. 2. Yes, include every “little” thing you have done. Go ahead and include everything you have done

– the jobs you liked, the jobs you didn’t like. The volunteer work you couldn’t wait to get out of doing, the contractor job you wished you could have done forever. Do include your gig as a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) or dad. Add in your education even if you didn’t actually finish your degree. Partial degrees can be very revealing. 3. Love it or list it. For each job or educational opportunity, write a little pro’s and con’s list. Here are the things I liked. Here are the things I didn’t like. If you were/are a SAHM, often the things you like or don’t like do not include childcare per se. Instead think of things like whether you liked working alone, on your own schedule, with people under three feet tall? Or maybe you liked the opportunity to be creative or to spend a lot of time outside? 4. Print it. I don’t mean that you need to print this on bond paper for distribution. I mean that when you hold something in your hand vs. look at it on the screen, you see it differently. Your mind considers it differently. So print it. 5. Get it dirty. Break out the pencils, pens and markers, people. You are now going to make your “Dirty Little Resume” even dirtier. Circle themes that you see. Paths that you have taken. Patterns that emerge. You will probably see a path that goes along with your college coursework like “Marketing” or “Teaching” or “Engineering.” You will also find themes about what you did on the job “Military families” or “Details” or “Spreadsheets” or “Cold Calling.” You could see themes that are about a value or a skill like “Leadership,” “Justice,” “Health” or “Creativity.” 6. Use themes to suggest your next job goal. Seeking these themes might seems silly to you, but this the important stuff. These themes tell you not only what kind of job

Know your resources with your local FFSC

you want, but they tell you what you should actually include on your next resume. Where is your past work experience, your education, your strengths, your satisfaction leading you to? What is the next job for you? 7. Name that job. If you can’t name the kind of job or employer or field you seek, you aren’t really ready to craft a resume. You aren’t quite ready to approach your network. You don’t need to be able to say, “I want to be a senior product manager for a mid-range firm selling software to furry-backed cabinet makers on the north side of the street in Midlothian, Virginia.” Instead, you say something like, “I want to work for a non-profit – I’m good at fundraising and events.” Or, “I want to use my health care background in a business environment this time.” You are even allowed to be seeking more than one kind of job at a time – as long as you have a resume for each job you want. 8. Ask for feedback. If you still aren’t sure what you are looking for, post your Dirty Little Resume on

Adjusting our sails Spouses should seek help from resources, each other

By Linda Port Military Spouse Contributor

The Navy does a thorough job of setting the stage to help us help ourselves, and each other. From Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) to Navy FamilyLine and Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, there is information available and classes on many things. Bases and commands tailor specific regional information and compile complete pre-deployment packets to help us prepare for anything from everyday issues to natural disasters, wherever we may be stationed. But as we all know, the solutions to our life issues are ultimately our own responsibility. There are times when others can step in to guide us to resources that are already in place even before we know we could use help. Often our biggest challenge is not realizing what we don’t know. Our Navy families need a vast array of information. For those unfamiliar with available resources, it can be overwhelming. Even if you know the ropes, the everchanging nature of things will keep us all on our toes. This is where a healthy network of spouses can be invaluable. Here is where all bets are off. There are too many variables to guarantee anyone – not the spouses, the command, or big Navy – that the mix of spouses at the command will have a balance of experience, availability, and willingness to actively engage in addressing the needs of spouses and families. Detailers don’t cut orders based on whether a Sailor is married or a spouse’s experience level, availability, or desire to be involved. We are very fortunate to have literally thousands of spouses who fit the bill and many more who are eager to train up. Many commands have great teams in place dedicated to ongoing training and keeping their families informed and actively engaged. Information has a shelf life and must be frequently updated. The problem of vacant spouse leadership positions too often boils down to unpredictable demographics. When orders are ex-

ecuted or the command puts out the word for spouses to apply for ombudsman or to help run a Family Readiness Group (FRG), you never know who will apply. This is not a simple mathematical equation. Rank of the Sailor and length of service are irrelevant. A well-experienced, knowledgeable spouse may have a demanding career, an ailing parent, or just not be interested. A master chief’s wife may be a newlywed with plans to start a family. A young spouse may have a remarkable grasp on programs and resources, and have experienced several deployment evolutions. Aside from capabilities, there are personalities to consider. There is no algorithm. Sailors follow orders for tasking. Spouses cannot (and should not) be pressured into taking a position in support of command families. Conversely, even if someone has the experience and training to do the job, they must offer their efforts for the good of the command and not for personal reasons. These are not jobs for those who wish to be power brokers or “in the know” with command information. Command leadership does not take these issues lightly and should not select candidates without truly knowing their abilities and motives. All that said, there are times when a command is without an ombudsman, or the FRG has vacant positions. There will even be times when those in the positions may be less prepared than they could be. Often people’s enthusiasm and motivation are at their highest when their skills are low. They have that “I can do this thing” mentality and are eager to try. Those who are more experienced and skilled may feel less desire to contribute taking the “been there, done that” point of view. So, wouldn’t we all like solutions to this quandary? Of course we would! Let’s start by deciding what really matters to us. The reality is, the spouses at your command are the cast of characters and a pool of talent you have available. Whatever levels of experience and enthusiasm you see in action are what the command and everyone involved has to work

the fridge or email it to a few trusted friends. Start asking the people who love you and what they think you would be good at doing. Write that stuff down. (My son once gripped the car handle and told me, “I don’t think you should get a job that requires a lot of driving, mommy.” You could also go to a professional resume service or job coach. You can get help for free from one of the Spouse Career Center consultants at Military OneSource. They won’t write your resume for you, but they will run a professional eye over your work and make suggestions. The people in your network really do want to help you get a job. Using the Dirty Little Resume exercise, you can identify what kind of job you seek. Tighten your margins. Focus your bullet points. And maybe, if you are really sure of yourself, you might even pick a 12-point font this time. Because we all want to see where you are going, just like you do.

with. If it matters to you, be constructive. If there are things we do that are NOT productive: STOP DOING THEM! Experience can be a downfall if you blow off others for not having it. Rookies may follow the checklist to the letter – and get eye rolls, or try hard, but not know the ropes – and get criticized. Experienced ones may skip the checklist – done it before. This sends mixed message to rookies on its importance – bad example. Rookies may tune out the “know-it-alls.” We need to stop with the veiled or blatant questions: What your Sailor does compared to mine does not matter here; Your Sailors rate/rank compared to mine does not matter here. THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION! If you are new to this Navy thing, ask questions. Pay attention and bring a notebook. If you can offer your time and effort, don’t overpromise. Let them know how you can help and if you want to learn more. Seek someone you feel comfortable chatting with. I know, this can feel like the lunchroom in middle school. Please, don’t be discouraged. We were all there – some of us have just forgotten how frustrating and uncomfortable it can be. Put your name on the email list, like the Facebook page and visit the FFSC website. If you have been around a while, have compassion for newer spouses who attend to meet others and learn things. Contribute when you can help in open discussions. No reason to watch anyone reinvent the wheel if you can mentor. There is also no reason to take on more than you want or have time for. Often just fresh ideas from those who have been around the block can help a lot. It sounds simplistic, but the example that experienced spouses set for new spouses impacts the overall “healthy function” of the group. I have been on a couple of COMPASS Teams (visit gocompass.org). Our goal as mentors was to get thru the whole course of four days without divulging our Sailors rate/rank because in the world of spouses, it shouldn’t matter. It was a great lesson in not leading with your resume. Lets all adjust our sails a little. Smooth sailing is a lot of work! Teamwork is imperative!

Gen. Kevin Killea, vice chief of naval research and commanding general, the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory. The GBAD system is being designed for use on light tactical vehicles such as the Humvee and Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. With the proliferation of UAV technology, Marine Corps leaders expect that units increasingly will have to defend themselves against adversaries trying to perform reconnaissance and surveillance on them from the air. “We can expect that our adversaries will increasingly use UAVs and our expeditionary forces must deal with that rising threat,” said Col. William Zamagni, acting head of ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Department. “GBAD gives the Marine Corps a capability to counter the UAV threat efficiently, sustainably and organically with austere expeditionary forces.

As the Navy prepares to deploy its first laser weapon on a ship later this summer, Office of Naval Research (ONR) officials announced on June 11 that they have finished awarding contracts to develop a similar weapon to be used on ground vehicles. The Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy On-the-Move program, commonly referred to as GBAD, aims to provide an affordable alternative to traditional firepower to keep enemy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from tracking and targeting Marines on the ground. ONR is working with Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division and industry partners on the development of GBAD’s components and subsystems, including the laser itself, beam director, batteries, radar, advanced cooling, and communica-

NAVY SEEKS BIOFUELS ON A LARGE SCALE At least 37 million gallons of drop-in biofuels are being sought

By Lt. Richlyn Ivey Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment

WASHINGTON

In a major step for the Department of the Navy’s efforts to increase operational readiness and mission effectiveness by reducing its reliance on petroleum, at least 37 million gallons of drop-in biofuels are being sought

as part of its F-76 marine diesel and JP-5 shipboard jet fuel supply in the upcoming Inland/East/Gulf Coast bulk fuels solicitation, released by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Energy on June 9. Bids are due by July 9, and deliveries of fuel will start April 1, 2015. The Inland/East/Gulf Coast is the single largest bulk fuels acquisition program, and is valued in excess of $3.5 billion.

The biofuels sought can be blended in a range of 10 to 50 percent with conventional petroleum products and must meet all military fuel specification properties which make handling requirements and performance indiscernible to the end user. Currently, two biofuel pathways have been tested and qualified for use in Navy and Marine Corps aircraft, ships, vehicles and equipment, and efforts are underway to adopt more pathways.

other possibilities for future expeditionary forces.” The technologies being developed under the GBAD program are a direct response to the Marine Corps Science and Technology Strategic Plan, which calls for a mobile directed-energy weapon capable of destroying threats such as UAVs. “Aggressive action against air threats is needed for the Marine AirGround Task Force to conduct expeditionary maneuver,” said Lee Mastroianni, program manager for Force Protection in ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Department. “Everything about this program is geared toward realizing a viable directed-energy capability in support of that objective to allow our Marines to be fast and lethal.” Some of the system’s components have already been used in tests to detect and track UAVs of all sizes. Later in the year, researchers will test the entire system against targets using a 10kW laser as a stepping stone to a 30kW laser. The 30kW system is expected to be ready for field testing in 2016, when the program will begin more complex trials to ensure a seamless process from detection and tracking to firing, all from mobile tactical vehicles.

Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) funds, capped at 71 cents or less per neat biofuel gallon, are available to defray any additional costs that may exist for fuels derived from domestic feedstocks on a USDA-approved list. Expanding military energy sources improves the reliability of our overall fuel supply, adds resilience against supply disruptions, and gives the military more fuel options to maintain its readiness and defend the national security interests of the United States.

MC1 Jason J. Perry Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Bill Moran talks with Sonar Technician 1st Class Patrick Mcelwaney and other Sailors assigned to various commands at Submarine Base New London while visiting Groton.

CNP talks manning, stability while in Groton By Lt. Timothy Hawkins Submarine Group 2 Public Affairs

GROTON, CONN.

The Chief of Naval Personnel discussed manpower issues with crew members from two Los Angeles-class submarines during a pierside all-hands call, June 11, which wrapped up a two-day visit to Groton, Conn. Vice Adm. Bill Moran spoke to 150 Sailors from USS Toledo (SSN 769) and USS Pittsburgh (SSN 720). He also met separately with Groton-area senior enlisted leaders, waterfront support personnel, submarine school students, and other Sailors. This was Moran’s first trip to Naval Submarine Base New London since assuming responsibility for Navy manpower readiness last August. “To come up here to the cradle of the Submarine Force here in Groton is really special,” said Moran. “I think it’s pretty clear from our [Chief of Naval Operations] just how important submarines are to the United States.” “He likes to say we have to own the undersea domain,” he continued. “We own it now, we have owned it for decades, and we’ve got to own it far into the future.” Moran arrived in Groton late Tuesday morning. He started off enjoying a lunch with enlisted Sailors from 20 different commands in the base galley. “One of our number one priorities is to engage with the fleet,” said Fleet Master Chief April Beldo, senior enlisted leader at Navy Personnel Command (NPC). Beldo and three other NPC personnel accompanied Moran. “We want to get out here and understand if we’re meeting Sailors’ needs.” The visit included walkthroughs of submarine maintenance and support facilities, Naval Submarine School training spaces, and a tour of Historic Ship Nautilus, the Navy’s first nuclear-powered submarine. After touring Virginia-class attack submarine USS Missouri (SSN 780) on Wednesday, Moran boarded Toledo to eat lunch with enlisted crew members. “From what I’ve seen in the day-and-ahalf I’ve been here in Groton, there is no doubt in my mind that we have the best

equipment and the best people,” Moran said to Toledo and Pittsburgh crew members who gathered around him on the pier following lunch. “The training here is as good as I’ve seen anywhere in the Navy.” Moran said his job is to make sure the Navy takes care of Sailors and their families. He discussed a 25 percent sea-pay increase that went into effect last month. “All the sea-pay tables were bumped up 25 percent starting May 1,” he said. Moran also discussed recent changes to enlisted advancement policy, including a new formula for the Final Multiple Score (FMS) and changes to the Command Advancement Program (CAP). On May 15, NPC announced the advancement exam will become the largest factor considered for advancement to E4 and E5 in the new formula, which increases the exam’s weight by eight percent. For advancement to E6, the Performance Mark Average (PMA) becomes the largest factor and will account for 50 percent of the FMS determination. PMA will account for 60 percent of the total FMS for advancement to E7. “It’s not all about performance, it’s about more weight toward performance,” said Moran. “As you move up the line to chief, the value of the test goes down significantly and the value of your performance evaluations – how your Chief’s Mess and command triad value your performance – goes up significantly.” CAP quotas haven’t changed, said Moran. What has changed is that Sailors can only be capped between July and September. “The real simple reason for that is if we know ahead of the September and March exam cycles what quotas have been filled up by the CAP in and throughout the fleet, then we’ll have a better and more precise prediction about what the quotas will be like in September and March,” he said. Moran also addressed questions from Sailors about rumored realignments for various ratings. In response he said, “We’re going to stay where we are. We’ve had a lot of change in the last 10 years, and I’m interested in just stabilizing the force right now.”

Navy artifacts getting new home Naval History and Heritage Command Communication and Outreach Division RICHMOND, VA.

The Navy announced the planned consolidation of its historic artifacts from multiple locations into a tailored facility located in Richmond, Va. Naval artifacts are currently housed in separate facilities in Washington D.C., SpringďŹ eld, Va., Cheatham Annex, and Memphis, Tenn. The entire process of consolidation, which includes a partial refurbishment of the Richmond facility to adequately meet storage condition standards, is projected to take approximately 18 months. “This move represents a generational leap forward for the conservation, preservation, management and ultimately care of our most prized Navy holdings,â€? said Capt. Henry Hendrix, Ph.D., the director of the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC). “We’ve been both amazed by and grateful for our partners at DLA [Defense Logistics Agency] for their alacrity, enthusiasm and determination.â€? NHHC currently holds more than 300,000 artifacts in its collection dating back to the founding of the Republic. “We’re glad to help safeguard these invaluable possessions by ďŹ nding a single facility. It removes the inherent inefďŹ ciencies of having them scattered in various locations – and the best part is, with the necessary storage modiďŹ cations, it’ll mean signiďŹ cant improvements for the artifacts,â€? said Vice Adm. Mark Harnitchek, director of the Defense Logistics Agency, who was central in arranging for the consolidation. The consolidation now allows the Navy to centrally locate all of the artifacts, which will translate to improved care, management, accountability and oversight of the collection. The building in Richmond will ensure improved environmental controls for high risk artifacts, proper shelving and storage, an area for conserving and preserving the

artifacts. The facility will provide the infrastructure for staff to continue and complete the on-going 100 percent artifact inventory effort currently underway. This vast undertaking will demand the entire collection team to focus its time and energy on the move. “We’ve been working hard for a few years now to more efďŹ ciently manage the vast and in some cases fragile holdings, and having them scattered around the country was both expensive and problematic,â€? said Dr. Jay Thomas, the assistant director for NHHC for the collections management division. “Truthfully, the existing storage conditions weren’t anything to write home about either. We’ve still got a lot of work to do, but this is a quantum leap forward.â€? In the near term, the Navy’s Curator Branch will continue to service existing artifact loans, currently numbering in excess of 1,500. The curators will suspend processing requests for new artifact loans as they tackle the project, which will require signiďŹ cant travel in support of preparing and managing the shipment of the vast holdings. Their ability to accept new donations and respond to inquiries will also be slowed. “We have literally tons of material, some of which is priceless, and nearly all of it irreplaceable,â€? said head curator, Karen France. “But the work is well worth it if it means in the long run our Sailors and our citizens can better appreciate what the Navy has meant to our country since its inception.â€?

When the semi-submersible was tracked by Ingraham and visually located by its SH-60B Seahawk helicopter and rigid-hulled inatable boat, the suspected trafďŹ ckers punctured their hull in an attempt to scuttle the craft. A U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment from Ingraham boarded the semi-submersible, detained the crew and gained control of the sinking vessel. Ingraham then quickly arrived on the scene and brought the semisubmersible alongside the ship. As the Colombian Navy worked to tow the vessel into port, Sailors from Ingraham worked to pump water out of the slowly sinking semi-submersible and kept the vessel aoat long enough to retrieve the contraband loaded inside. The Coast Guard said the semi-submersible was transporting about 2,380 kilograms of cocaine worth more than $107 million. Three suspects who crewed the semi-submersible were taken into custody. The semi-submersible and cocaine seizure was part of Operation Martillo, a multinational effort targeting illicit trafďŹ ckers and the movement of narcotics, precursor chemicals, bulk cash, and weapons in Central American waters. “I could not be prouder of the dedication and professionalism the entire team displayed throughout the 48hour operation to make this interdiction successful,â€? said U.S. Navy Cmdr. Joey Frantzen, commanding ofďŹ cer of Ingraham, after the bust. Units involved from Ingraham include Helicopter AntiSubmarine Squadron Light 49 and a U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detach-

ment. Ingraham is homeported in Everett, Washington. “The takedown and subsequent seizure of the [semisubmersible] trafďŹ cking vessel represents the hard work and tireless efforts of the Colombian Navy, Colombian Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and Joint Interagency Agency Task Force South,â€? said Frantzen. Self-propelled semi-submersibles are low-proďŹ le vessels capable of carrying a crew of four and vast quantities of contraband. Constructed of low-signature materials, the vessels are extremely difďŹ cult to locate. They are designed to have a reduced wake and lowered thermal signature. In addition, a semi-submersible has an extremely low freeboard. Transiting along the surface, the watercraft is difďŹ cult to observe visually. Under the coordination of the Key West, Florida-based Joint Interagency Task Force South, U.S. military, Coast Guard and law enforcement agencies, and regional partner nation law enforcement agencies patrol the waters in the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and the eastern Pa-

ciďŹ c on a year-round basis in an effort to detect, monitor and interdict illicit trafďŹ ckers. During at-sea busts in international waters, a suspect vessel is initially located and tracked by U.S. military or law enforcement aircraft or vessels. The actual interdictions – boarding, search, seizures and arrests – are led and conducted by U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachments or partner nation law enforcement agencies. U.S. maritime law enforcement and the interdiction phase of counter-smuggling operations in the eastern PaciďŹ c occurs under the tactical control of the 11th Coast Guard District headquartered in Alameda, Calif. Although Ingraham has already disrupted 1,375 kilograms of cocaine during her deployment, this is her ďŹ rst successful interception since arriving in the region to support Operation Martillo. Operation Martillo (Hammer) includes the participation of 14 nations that are working together to counter transnational organized crime and illicit trafďŹ cking in coastal waters along the Central American isthmus.

PaciďŹ c Partnership leads joint medical demonstration with Vietnam military PaciďŹ c Partnership Public Affairs DA NANG, VIETNAM

Medical staff from U.S. Navy and Japan Maritime Self Force (JMSDF) led a medical evacuation demonstration for the Vietnamese military as part of PaciďŹ c Partnership 2014, June 11. “Today we led a demonstration for the Vietnamese medics on how to safely do a medical evacuation of a patient from the ship to the shore,â€? said Lt.

AMERICAN HERITAGE ANNUAL PASS How can one day of fun last an entire year? Virginia residents can now visit Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center for one year for the price of one day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $20.50 for adults and $10.25 for ages 6-12 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; available only online.

Every day, thousands of American service members relive the trauma of war in their sleep. They hear explosions, see the carnage of battle erupt around them and feel the crushing weight of a painful combat memory resurface in their dreams. Unfortunately, frequent nightmares are common among service members with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moreover, they disrupt sleep, which can magnify the daytime symptoms of PTSD and stymie the recovery process signiďŹ cantly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although psychotherapy is the best treatment for PTSD, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less impactful when a patient is tired, irritable, anxious or unable to concentrate because recurring nightmares continuously disrupt their sleep,â&#x20AC;? said Army Lt. Col. Jess Calohan, program director for the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program at the Daniel K. Inouye Graduate School of Nursing, part of the Uniformed Services University (USU) of the Health Sciences here. In 2005, Calohan began working with Dr. Murray Raskind, who discovered that a largely obsolete blood pressure medication called prazosin appeared to be effective for treating PTSD-related nightmares. In his own practice, Raskind, director of the Northwest Network Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center at Veterans Affairs, used prazosin to treat Vietnam War veterans with PTSD. Theoretically, the drug blocks the effects of adrenaline in areas of the brain thought to be responsible for causing nightmares during sleep. Raskind found that prazosin was tremendously successful at improving sleep quality and other PTSD-related symptoms. Still, Raskind wondered if prazosin also would work on active duty service members. Their combat experiences were different, and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as far removed from the ďŹ ght as the Vietnam War-era patients in his study. Raskind, Calohan and colleagues partnered to investigate prazosinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crossover efďŹ cacy. In two separate studies funded by the Veterans Affairs Department, active duty Soldiers with PTSD reported experiencing better, more restful sleep while taking prazosin. Furthermore, in many cases, the combat-related nightmares that ampliďŹ ed other PTSD symptoms were eliminated altogether. This led to vast improvements in overall PTSD treatment for the Soldiers Calohan treated at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state and at frontline clinics in Iraq and Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before our research, prazosin was a level C on the strength of recommendation scale on the [VA and Defense Department] clinical practice guidelines, a system that measures the quality and consistency of evidence for using a medical intervention,â&#x20AC;? said Calohan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a level B, but we fully expect prazosin will move up to a level A soon.â&#x20AC;? Level A is the highest rating on the strength of recommendation scale. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reserved for interventions validated by highquality, evidence-based studies. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is reaching for the top of the scale through research results and professional accolades.

OLD GLORYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S COLORS RUN DEEP Maryland Harley-Davidson dealership pays homage to honor, service, country By David Todd Contributing Writer

LAUREL, MD.

Whether you are a motorcycle enthusiasts or just a beginning rider, Old Glory Harley-Davidson (HD) is a one stop shop for all your motorcycle needs. Located in Laurel, Md., the dealership is one of the leading Maryland and D.C. area HD dealerships, specializing in new and certiďŹ ed pre-owned HD motorcycles, service, parts and HD-themed merchandise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The beauty of Harley-Davidson is they have everything for the beginner to the mature human being that just wants to retire and get on a motorcycle and tour,â&#x20AC;? said Russell Christian, Business Development Manager at Old Glory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a Riding AcademyÂŽ New Rider Course here

where we get people acclimated (to motorcycles) and get their license, and learn how to ride motorcycles safely â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we are one of the top three in the country (who offer the course).â&#x20AC;? In addition to the Rider Course and safety in general, the dealership offers a full line of Department of Transportation (DOT) approved helmets and riding apparel to keep riders safe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The safety factor â&#x20AC;Ś you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; every second you are on that motorcycle,â&#x20AC;? he explained, pointing out that even the most seasoned rider can get hurt on a motorcycle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a thing called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;SEE.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It means search, evaluate and execute, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things they focus on in the Rider Course. I ride a lot, and personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in ďŹ rst gear with my clutch in at every trafďŹ c light because you never know who is coming up behind you. I always have my eyes on my mirrors.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ rst thing that customers will notice as they walk into the dealership is the patriotic dĂŠcor, from their 13-star

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Betsy Rossâ&#x20AC;? ďŹ&#x201A;ag design in the ďŹ&#x201A;oor tiles, and American and state ďŹ&#x201A;ags that ďŹ&#x201A;y in and out of the store, to their giant Uncle Sam poster that hangs prominently for all to see in the back of the store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the history behind (the ďŹ&#x201A;ag), they just know the name â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Old Glory.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; You would be surprised that many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that it means â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ďŹ&#x201A;ag,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Mike Doherty, a member of Old Gloryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales support staff and a former active duty Marine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We call it our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Betsy Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; entrance, with the stars in a circle (at the front door) and the stripes on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you took the roof off you would have the Betsy Ross ďŹ&#x201A;ag. The brick and stone on the front of the building is the same brick and stone used on the B-W (Baltimore-Washington) Parkway, so we are integrated with that, and we have the 50 state ďŹ&#x201A;ags on the wall and underneath it are what we call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our First 50,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which are the ďŹ rst 50 people who bought motorcycles here with their name and their motorcycle etched on a plaque.â&#x20AC;?

A large portion of their clientele comes from both active duty and retired military, as well as police, fire, and Department of Defense (DOD) personnel. On weekends during the summer months, Old Glory gets involved with the local Maryland community by giving back to those in service, and their loyal customers, by providing free coffee, and “Liberty” dogs and “Freedom” burgers at various events and motorcycle workshops. “Harley-Davidson Motor Company in Milwaukee, Wis. and Old Glory Harley-Davidson are very patriotic … all about the military, police, fire and public service – period,” said Christian. “Because of the proximity to the federal government in D.C. and all of the military bases within the area, it gives us the opportunity to give back to the people who serve every day.” For those wanting to customize their motorcycles, or need service and maintenance, Old Glory’s team of HD-certified technicians are available to assist you. Their technicians take a personal interest in their service customers by performing a free 19-point safety inspection with every service appointment.

David Todd Located in Laurel, Md., Old Glory is one of the leading Maryland and D.C. area Harley-Davidson (HD) dealerships, specializing in new and certified pre-owned HD motorcycles, service, parts and HD-themed merchandise.

“We do repairs to customization,” said Brittany Darling, Old Glory’s service manager. “We build new motors everyday to put (customer bikes) back together. Most of the (service) is general maintenance, but we get the big jobs too.” “We pay attention to detail,” added Kurt Lentzner, a certified HD technician at Old Glory. “When it leaves here, it’s definitely safe.” For more information about Old Glory HD, visit www.oldgloryhd.com, or call (301) 575-0575.

music

Jersey Boys In the 60s, four scrappy young men from New Jersey – Frankie Valli (John Lloyd Young), Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen), Nick Massi (Michael Lomenda) and Tommy DeVito (Vincent Piazza) – have the magic sound that propels them from singing under streetlights to singing in spotlights. With songs like “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man,” the quartet finds itself at the top of the charts. However, personal and professional problems threaten to tear the group apart.

The Rover Set in a world 10 years following the collapse of the western economic system, where Australia’s mineral resources have drawn the desperados and dangerous to its shores. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows

hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce), who travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind the wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him.

Think Like A Man Too In “Think Like a Man,” a group of close friends applied relationship advice from a book by Steve Harvey to their own romantic entanglements. In the end, Dominic (Michael Ealy) and the rest of his “band of brothers” were well on their way to everlasting love with the women in their lives. However, when all of the couples reunite in Las Vegas for a wedding, a series of compromising situations threatens to derail not only the big event, but also the survival of everyone else’s love affair.

JOHNSON NOTCHES SECOND VICTORY IN THREE RACES By Rick Minter Universal Uclick

It should have come as no surprise that Jimmie Johnson won the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway, June 15. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won two of the past three Sprint Cup races. He was among the fastest in practice prior to the 400, and his Hendrick Motorsports team had been dominating the win column in the Sprint Cup Series. But, given Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24 previous starts at Michigan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all without scoring a win â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there was some question until the checkered ďŹ&#x201A;ag was in sight. After seeing strategy decisions go against him in recent years, and mechanical failures take away chances to win, Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race played right into his hands. He made his ďŹ nal pit stop with 36 laps to go, taking on four fresh tires, while many others took either two or none. Then he put those tires to work, driving to the front and taking the lead for good with 10 laps to go. Kevin Harvick, who once again had the dominant car but failed to win, ďŹ nished second over Brad Keselowski, Paul Menard and Kasey Kahne. Now the numbers show Hendrick Motorsports with ďŹ ve straight Cup wins, which the team has done before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; twice in 2007, along with a string of six straight that year. Johnson now leads the Cup Series with three wins this season and has 69 for his career. Hendrick has won six times this season, and StewartHaas Racing, which uses Hendrick engines and chassis, has three more, giving team owner Rick Hendrick a stake in nine wins in the ďŹ rst 15 races of 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we were a little off early in

the year, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been kind of clicking here lately,â&#x20AC;? Rick Hendrick said in the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interview at Michigan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody is really putting out a lot of effort right now, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paying off.â&#x20AC;? Johnson, understandably, was feeling good after his ďŹ rst Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Cup victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just thrilled on multiple levels,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The success that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had as a team, kind of hitting our stride and getting to Victory Lane three times in the last four weeks, our teammates and their success, the company, and you look at our engines in our cars and what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rick [Hendrick] gives us all the tools to go out there and do our jobs and to have everything so fast and so good, you want it to last forever,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a good time to sit back and reďŹ&#x201A;ect and enjoy it.â&#x20AC;?

As he did some of that reďŹ&#x201A;ecting in his winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interview, Johnson recalled his ďŹ rst days in Cup and getting to drive a powerful Hendrick car, despite a lackluster Nationwide Series career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe I won to start with,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what Rick saw in me or Jeff [Gordon] back in 2001 when they put me in that car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Believe me, when I won my ďŹ rst race, I was like, I thought I had these guys snowed and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given me a year to go out and race. They did see something. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very cool to hear it, and believe me, even at 69 wins, I still cherish them all. It is not easy to win in this sport, and just thankful for the opportunity. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been with Rick and with Chad and Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, you look at that whole synergy of that; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all been together through this entire ride of the 48, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special each time we win.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mighty Mouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; retains championship belt with dominating victory By Thomas Gerbasi UFC.com

VANCOUVER, B.C.

Continuing to show himself to be a step ahead of the rest of his peers at 125 pounds, Demetrious Johnson retained his UFC ďŹ&#x201A;yweight title for the fourth time, winning a workmanlike ďŹ ve-round unanimous decision over game challenger Ali Bagautinov in the main event of UFC 174 at Rogers Arena, June 14. Scores were 50-45 across the board. Bagautinov was the busier of the two ďŹ&#x201A;yweights in the opening round, but Johnson was never in any danger. Even when Bagautinov locked the champion up against the fence, Johnson scored with enough knees at close range to keep the challenger guessing. The Dagestan native was able to get a late takedown though, adding to his score total. Johnson began to pressure Bagautinov with more intensity in round two, adding in punches, kicks, and a takedown attempt in the process. Midway through the round, Johnson cracked Bagautinov with a ďŹ&#x201A;ush right hand, but the challenger walked right through it, coming back moments later with a kick to the head. And while Bagautinov locked Johnson against the fence for much of the latter part of the round, Johnson stayed active with his strikes, especially his knees. The crowd got restless as the inďŹ ghting continued in round three, but that was Bagautinovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best chance to take over the ďŹ ght, as Johnson was tagging him with a wide variety of strikes when the two fought at long range with each other. With 1:20 left, Bagautinov nailed his second takedown of the ďŹ ght, but Johnson got up quickly, ďŹ ring off strikes at close range, and when the two tangled again at the end of the round, it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mighty Mouseâ&#x20AC;? doing the bulk of the scoring. In round four, Johnson appeared to be pulling away. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing anything highlight reel-worthy, just putting in a solid nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work as Bagautinovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense slowed down. After a hug to begin the ďŹ nal frame, Johnson and Bagautinov got back to business at close range, Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speed and activity again proving to be a difference maker. That would ultimately be the story of the ďŹ ght. Another night, another win for the champ. With the win, Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnson improves to 20-2-1; Bagautinov falls to 13-3.

TACKLING SUMMER TRAVEL WITH EASE StatePoint

The warm weather and long summer days offer the perfect opportunity to take a break from the daily grind. Ironically though, many ďŹ nd vacation planning to be a source of stress. Figuring out where to go and affordable ways of getting there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a headache. BlackBerry recommends leveraging the right technology and strategy to help you focus on enjoying the time off with family and friends in a productive and memorable way. Here are some simple tips from the productivity experts at BlackBerry to help you navigate this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventure: Expect the unexpected In 2013, 58 percent of travelers surveyed by AAA ranked â&#x20AC;&#x153;unexpected expensesâ&#x20AC;? as their top vacation frustration. Keep your travel budget in check by downloading the right tools in advance: airline-speciďŹ c smartphone apps provide speciďŹ c baggage guidelines, expense tracker apps such as My Budget Tracker or Expense Manager keep expenses organized, and travel booking and management apps help you stay on top of the best booking deals. More information about apps that are useful for travel can be found at Appworld.BlackBerry.com. Keep kids occupied Thanks to the long battery life of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile devices, keeping kids entertained during travel is a lot easier than it once was. Even the days of crying during a longer ďŹ&#x201A;ight can be gone. You can now use some personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing. Certain airlines even offer gate-to-gate WiFi. Ditch the accordion ďŹ le folder We live in a time where tickets, schedules,

local recommendations and memos can be stored on your mobile device. Give your printer and the planet a break and use your deviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native pass keeper app to manage boarding passes and ticket show stubs. On-the-go recommendations In unknown territory, location-based apps can quickly get you up to speed on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good locally. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to go for dinner? Ask Yelp Restaurant Finder, WhereIs or Nearest Locator. Find a restaurant that looks good? Download and log onto Open Table to make reservations at the best eateries around you. Capture memories As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re navigating your days, ďŹ&#x201A;ag speciďŹ c photos in your camera roll to easily identify the best shots or to create a themed collage later. Camera features on mobile technology can help you take better photos and get the angle just right, relieving the need for an extra camera. To get the whole story, download a movie-making app, such as BlackBerry StoryMaker, to easily polish phone-ďŹ lmed travel shorts for social sharing. Balance work and play If work must make a cameo on vacation, try connecting with your team without lugging your laptop. Smartphones allow you to easily save and share ďŹ les, video chat and screen share, so collaborating is as natural as if you were in the same room. Take advantage of intuitive features like BlackBerry Balance, so that you can securely send emails to colleagues, while ensuring you still have your personal space to share memories across your social channels. Use your technology to assist you with planning and enjoying your vacation, for happier summer travels.
