USS Enterprise (CVN 65) made her final voyage to the Newport News Shipyard, June 20. The ship, nearly six months into her dismantling process, was moved by tugboat on the James River to Newport News Shipyard with almost 150 Newport News Shipbuilding and Huntington Ingalls Industries shipbuilders aboard. “The main purpose of bringing the Enterprise up here is to defuel and deactivate her. This is the only shipyard capable of this,” said Denis Geary, who works in the radiological controls department at Newport News. The move marks one of

Patient donates asthma-friendly stuffed bears to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth By Rebecca A. Perron Naval Medical Center Portsmouth Public Affairs

PORTSMOUTH

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) received a visit, June 20, from a girl with big ambitions – Juliana Conza, 10, stopped by the Pediatrics Ward to distribute 10 certified asthma and allergyfriendly bears for the patients, giving out six bears and leaving behind four more for future patients. Conza, also the 2013 Miss Virginia Beach Preteen, raised money through fundraisers at two local restaurants to purchase the bears. She got the idea from the Environmental Protection Agency website after having a severe asthma attack in March that brought her to the

NMCP emergency room. “I read on the EPA website about a guy in Phoenix, Ariz. who raised money for stuffed bears,” she said. “So we had fundraisers at IHOP and at Sweet Frogs and raised $320, enough to buy 20 bears for ‘Juliebug’s Bear Hugs.’” Conza, whose nickname is Juliebug, was diagnosed with asthma when she was in kindergarten. After years of her condition being well-controlled, exposure to environmental triggers led to a series of asthma attacks – one of them serious.

SSC Atlantic helps put ‘Warriors to Work’ By Jerry Sekerak SSC Atlantic Hampton Roads Public Affairs

NORFOLK

Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) volunteers Kirby Johnson and Michael Brown took time, June 15, to provide resume reviews, mock interviews, job coaching and networking tips to Wounded Warriors to ensure the warriors know how to properly market themselves to civilian employers. Johnson and Brown joined more than a dozen volunteers representing nine other local and national businesses and organizations at the annual Wounded Warrior Project’s regional alumni summit at the Wyndham Resort in Virginia Beach. The event, which teamed about 20 warriors with potential employers, helped provide the warriors with job-hunting and networking skills, as well as offers of employment, if available. “We’ve reached out to the Wounded Warrior program [at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth] and worked with the Veteran’s Employment and Education Center at Tidewater Community College, as well as this group, the Wounded Warrior Project,” said Johnson, SSC Atlantic’s Human Resources representative for Hampton Roads. “[Our] goal is

CNIC plans for reduction in force Press Release Commander, Navy Installations Command Public Affairs

WASHINGTON

Commander, Navy Installations Command announced a plan, June 19, to conduct a Reduction in Force (RIF) action in fiscal year 2013 that will be completed in 2014. Over the course of the next seven months, CNIC will eliminate 745 civilian positions throughout its shore enterprise in seven Navy Regions across 20 states, the District of Columbia, the Island of Guam and in the countries of Italy, Greece and Cuba. The actual total number of people directly impacted by this RIF action will be determined once other workforce shaping measures, such as

Voluntary Separation Incentive Payments, Voluntary Early Retirement Authority and placement into current vacancies have been completed. CNIC, along with other Navy commands, has experienced reduced budgets and must implement cost-saving measures across the entire force. “This action is not taken lightly, but is part of a conscious, risk-based approach to future shore capabilities that are aligned with the Navy Mission,” said Vice. Adm. William French, CNIC. “I am committed to ensuring that we do all we can to assist those people directly impacted by this action by providing them access to all tools available under Reduction in Force rules and assisting them with finding future employment.”

Career transition services for the employees affected by the RIF action will vary depending on their needs, but services available will include skills assessment, resume and cover letter preparation, networking and interviewing techniques, counseling, job search assistance, and retraining, if necessary.

The Navy’s newest aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) held a change of command ceremony in the ship’s hangar bay, June 20. Capt. Brian E. Luther, commanding officer of George H.W. Bush, was relieved by Capt. Andrew J. Loiselle. Guest speaker Rear Adm. Ted Branch, Commander, Naval Air Force Atlantic, commended Luther for his exceptional performance. “The excellence and readiness exhibited by the crew of USS George H.W.

dedication to his crew and the Navy comes through in everything he does.” Luther took over as commanding officer aboard George H.W. Bush in March of 2011 and led the ship through its first combat deployment later that year. He was awarded the Legion of Merit (3rd Award) for his outstanding performance as commanding officer. “I want to thank the officers, chiefs and crew of George H.W. Bush for their outstanding performance,” said Luther. “They are all highly trained and motivated and will always be heroes in my eyes. I was a captain before I came to this ship, I am a captain now and I will be a captain when I leave, but the greatest honor of all was being the captain of the George H.W. Bush. Capt. Loiselle, I know they will make you proud.”

Since taking command, Luther has led the George H.W. Bush crew through a number of firsts including making ground breaking strides in naval aviation by being the first aircraft carrier to launch an unmanned aircraft, tested a new torpedo self-defense system, completed a Planned Incremental Availability period and numerous sea trails and carrier qualifications. During this time, George H.W. Bush earned a wide variety of accolades including the Battle Efficiency Award, Admiral Flatley Memorial Award, “Jig Dog” Ramage Award and Battenburg Cup. “Capt. Loiselle takes command with a proven track record of success, I am confident in his ability continue this

ships winning tradition,” said Branch. A native of Cranston, R.I., Loiselle graduated from Assumption College in 1988 with a degree in mathematics. He previously served as executive officer aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) and most recently as commanding officer of USS Gunston Hall (LSD 44). “I hope to carry on the great tradition already established on this ship,” said Loiselle. “I have already seen the supreme work ethic and attitude that will carry us to greater heights when we head out on deployment and operate in service to this nation.” USS George H.W. Bush is in port conducting training operations in preparation for the upcoming underway schedule.

CNO delivers Naval War College graduation address By Daniel S. Marciniak U.S. Naval War College Public Affairs

NEWPORT, R.I.

U.S. Navy Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert delivered the keynote address to graduating U.S. and international students and their guests at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC), June 21. “Be bold in thought, be confident in your actions, and be accountable and committed to the institution,” said Greenert. In an event that was livestreamed to a worldwide audience, Greenert told students that they are the current and future leaders of their respected nations. “You are here because your nation, your service, believes in you, and believes that you have potential and you will be a leader,” he said. With leaders from five services, 17 agencies and 75 nations making up this year’s graduating class, students in residence and through NWCs distance education programs were exposed to unique cultures and different ways of doing things. It was these differences that Greenert asked students to build upon. “You’ve studied history, you’ve learned new skills and

you’ve made friends,” said Greenert. “If I leave you one thing, it’s the friends piece. Never underestimate the friends you make in these international fora that you have here today.” These sentiments were echoed by NWC President Rear Adm. John N. Christenson. “You depart with greater trust and confidence in your fellow services, and in your international partners,” said Christenson. “You are ready now to begin the rest of your careers and the rest of your

Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert, presents diplomas to graduating students during a ceremony at U.S. Naval War College (NWC) in Newport, R.I. The graduating class of 2013 included 310 service members, civilian government employees and 130 international naval officers. Also, 1,105 students completed coursework through the College of Distance Education’s programs from 20 fleet center locations that comprise the Fleet Seminar Program and web-enabled, CD-ROM and correspondence programs.

lives ... ready to think and ready to lead.” For students, that’s exactly what makes the NWC experience invaluable – the international and interagency friendships and bonds that are created during their studies. “It’s a testament to the awesome classmates I met here that has made this the best experience of my career,” said graduating resident student Adrienne Galanek, a foreign service officer with the Department of State. “I learned so much from them and was impressed by them every single day.” Lt. de vaisseau Abdoul Aziz Sy, an international student with the Senegalese Navy, agrees. “This was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot and I think it will be the best training I’ve done in my career,” said Sy. “I will miss friends I met here, but who knows, maybe we will meet again

someplace, somewhere.” In addition to the 310 U.S. and 130 international resident graduates, 1,105 students completed their coursework through the College of Distance Education (CDE). The CDE program includes the NWC Monterey Program at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. from the 20 fleet center loca-

tions that comprise the Fleet Seminar Program, and the web-enabled, CD-ROM and correspondence programs. U.S. students receive either a Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies, accredited by the New England Association for Schools and Colleges, or an NWC diploma. Military graduates also earn Joint Professional

Military Education credit. After the presentation of diplomas, Christenson left students with one final “charge.” “To whom much is given, much is expected,” said Christenson. “From you, we now expect the best.” Photos and video from Friday’s ceremony can be found at www.usnwc.edu/graduation2013.

Command of Naval Air Force Atlantic changed hands during a ceremony aboard aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), June 21. Rear Adm. Troy M. Shoemaker relieved Rear Adm. Ted N.

NMCP’S TOP COST-REDUCING CLINICS RECOGNIZED DURING 4DX FORUM By MC2 Anna Arndt NMCP Public Affairs

PORTSMOUTH

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) celebrated the progress made in decreasing network health care costs and improving patient care through the implementation of the Four Disciplines of Execution (4DX), June 17. The 4DX system enables organizations to achieve higher levels of performance by breaking up goals into small, realistically achievable

tasks. Network costs have been reduced nine percent since the 4DX initiative began in January. The Franklin Covey program was brought to the command by Rear Adm. Elaine C. Wagner, Commander, NMCP and is the first in Navy Medicine to use it. During the 4DX forum, directorates participating in the initiative talked about the goals they made and awards were presented to the top performers. Cmdr. Jeffery Johnson, director for Strategy, opened the

forum by talking about how important the 4DX idea is for accomplishing their individual goals – that without visible landmarks, people will walk in circles, sometimes even crossing their own path without noticing it. “Last year, the Navy Surgeon General, Vice Adm. Matthew Nathan, set the course for Navy Medicine by giving us guidance on three things to focus on as reference points, which are readiness, jointness and value,” said Johnson. “The command decided to

focus more on value and set decreasing network costs as our goal.” NMCP set the goal of decreasing costs paid to network health care providers by 20 percent, from $100 million to $80 million. The Orthopedic Clinic has already made a huge impact. “We did some research with the business office and determined that an outside orthopedic specialty appointment, on average, is $521, where we can see the patient here for about $102,” said Naomi

Ramshur, Orthopedic Clinic manager. “So that $400 or so we are saving with the 1,048 patients that we saw just in five months, is almost $440,000 just by this one clinic.” The difference between 4DX and other cost-cutting measures is that 4DX allows clinic staff, at even the most junior level, to help decide what changes need to be made to help the command reach its goal. “With 4DX, the direction comes from the bottom up – they come up the approach,

the plan, the goal, how they are going to do it, the whole nine yards,” said Ramshur. “The line level really takes ownership of it, and it becomes theirs and they are proud of it. They want to do it, rather than doing it because they are told to. I think that’s the key to the success of it.” As the name implies, there are four disciplines, which begin with focusing on the most important objectives, also known as the wildly important goals, defining actions that enable teams to establish a standard for performance. This standard for performance is known as the lead measures. They must also have clear measurements for team and individual performance, or scoreboards, and team and individual accountability. “For our command, we had every clinic create their own scoreboard,” said Johnson. “Weekly, they review if they met their goals or not and then they set a goal for the next week. So every week you are creating that accountability.” “We plan to reach the overall goal of reducing network costs by increasing our kept appointments, decreasing deferrals to the network and decreasing auxiliary services, which are our support services, including the laboratory, radiology and pharmacy,” Johnson added. “Thus far we have really been targeting the pharmacy.” During the forum, representatives from the five participating directorates displayed their scoreboards, and talked about their goals and the progress they have made since the initiative began. Ramshur said that when the program kicked off, she gave her staff $40 and told them to decorate a 15-foot bulletin board to use as their scoreboard. “Every week, I update it with the new data and they see me walking up to the board with the new charts and will come up to look because it has become so competitive between the sub-specialties as to who’s going to outperform the other one during the week,” said Ramshur. “The board stimulates questions, even from patients. When our patients are waiting to be seen, they can look at it and it reiterates to them that we are taking all actions necessary to get them in as quickly as possible.” This initiative directly affects readiness by decreasing unbooked appointments, which allows patients to be seen earlier, decreasing the number of monthly unbooked appointments from 1,500 to just above 500. “We see family members and retirees, but we also see a huge active duty population here,” said Ramshur. “We have two satellite clinics that are all active duty only, and we are doing 4DX at those two clinics also. Our original goal was to make a 10-percent decrease in unbooked appointments and we far exceeded that goal.” Following the scoreboard presentations, the top performing clinics within each directorate were recognized. Wagner awarded the Admiral’s WIG Cup to the top directorate, the Directorate for Surgical Services. “The command will continue the current goals it set, to decrease network costs,” said Johnson about future of the initiative. “Some of the areas will come up with new areas to focus on, while others will continue with the goals they have already been working on.”

Navy veteran becomes ECPI graduate; talks opportunity, finding inspiration By David Todd The Flagship Managing Editor

NORFOLK

William “Burt” Evans, Jr., a Chesapeake resident and former Navy Radioman 1st Class, graduated proudly from ECPI University, June 22, with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Science – nearly 33 years after originally entering college. Evans, now 51 years old, said it was always a goal of his to achieve his bachelor’s degree, but “life got in the way.” To him, graduating has truly been a second chance for him and his family, and has set a positive path for his future. “Second chances to me means following up on what you set out to do,” he said. After graduating high school in 1980, Evans attended college for a few years, but decided to join the Navy to serve his country instead. “School at that time wasn’t working out for me, so I decided to make a career change and joined the military,” he said. Evans spent a total of 13.5 years in the Navy. After his first tour (December 1983 December 1987), he returned to civilian life and worked as an office supply company sales representative. He later rejoined the Navy for a second tour (April 1989 - October 1998). Unfortunately, the tour ended abruptly when his wife, Mary, passed away, leaving him with the sole responsibility of their two young children. “It was very tough,” he said, about the death of his wife and having to leave the Navy. “It was one of the toughest decision I ever had to make. I knew that being the only provider and caretaker [of my children], I had to separate from the military and go out and find a job so that I could support them.” Upon returning, Evans worked as a radio frequency technician and later met his second wife, Donna. Through the years, his original desire to obtain a degree didn’t diminish, so he made the decision to enroll in ECPI University to advance his career in information technology. The university appealed to his busy schedule, and the school’s accelerated degree format and class schedule flexibility allowed him to work, go to school and raise a family at the same time. “I felt like it [ECPI’s accelerated degree program] was a great way to get my degree,” said Evans. While attending ECPI, Evans began working as an ITO Service Delivery Representative with Hewlett Packard at Naval Station Norfolk, a job he plans to remain in after graduation. Throughout his degree process, Evans said he initially felt unsure in his ability to complete college in his 50s, but said he actually appreciated the experience more and learned several valuable lessons. “I realized that to succeed in life and have marketable skills, I would have to return to school and finish what I’d started years before,” said Evans. “I should have listened to my mom long ago, but it’s never too late to start again.” Evans said it’s important to

recognize opportunities when they are given to you. “Take full advantage of every opportunity you are given, whether it be financial aid, or the support of your family and spouse,” he said. “All of my advisors and teachers always supported me. They always went the extra mile to make sure that I understood the class material.” “And if there was ever a time where I needed extra time to finish an assignment,” he continued, “they were

always willing to let me do that so that I could get everything finished.” Evans graduated with 3.66 GPA surrounded by his family, including his wife, Donna, and their three children; his parents; his sister-inlaw and his future son-in-law. “It is never too late to pursue your dreams, I am proof positive of that,” he said. Editor’s note: Facts from an ECPI University press release contributed to this article.

It is never too late to pursue your dreams, I am proof positive of that.”

PCU Minnesota pulls into Naval Station Norfolk

Website offers viewers unprecedented access to deepsea explorations By Eric Beidel Office of Naval Research

ARLINGTON,VA.

MC2 Alex R. Forster The Virginia-Class Attack Submarine PCU Minnesota (SSN 783) pulls pier side on Naval Station Norfolk from a scheduled underway. Minnesota, the Navy’s 10th Virginia-class submarine, was delivered to the Navy on June 6, 11 months ahead of schedule. Construction of the Minnesota by Huntington Ingalls Industries at the company’s Newport News shipbuilding division began in February of 2008. The boat was christened on Oct. 27, 2012 and will be commissioned at a ceremony in Norfolk on Sept. 7.

A long-standing partnership between the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and one of the country’s foremost oceanographers culminated on June 21 with the launch of a 24-hour “newsroom” to track scientists’ activity aboard research ships and in the field and broadcast their findings to students and teachers around the world. ONR and Dr. Robert Ballard – best known for discovering the wreck of the Titanic – have teamed up for Exploration Now, an initiative that uses telepresence technologies to provide students, educators and others with live-stream video of research activities and opportunities to interact directly with scientists aboard different vessels in real time. “It’s a ‘situation room’ for ocean exploration,” said Cmdr. Joseph Cohn, ONRs deputy director of research for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). “The ability to tune in and interact with the crews of U.S. research vessels, no matter where they are, will give an unprecedented number of students and teachers an insider’s view of the important work these scientists are doing.” A shore-based production team at Ballard’s Center for Ocean Exploration at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography will provide mission control by coordinating feeds, creating highlight videos, arranging crew interviews and interpreting findings for audiences. Designed in part to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields, the program kicks off as Exploration Vessel Nautilus begins a six-month expedition in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, where, among other activities, researchers will investigate active undersea volcanoes and study the impact of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The crew will use a new hullmounted multi-beam sonar system to explore the seafloor and dispatch remotely operated vehicles to take high-definition video and collect geological and biological samples. Over the course of the expedition season aboard Nautilus there will be more than 150 rotating explorers – collectively referred to as the Corps of Exploration – including ONRsponsored Navy personnel, educators and students. “ONRs support of our Corps of Exploration has led to numerous masters and doctorate degrees, as well as the creation of important scientific, engineering and naval role models,” said Ballard. “Exploration Now will help

us advance a new paradigm of telepresence that not only will influence the oceanographic community, but also future Navy operations.” ONR has invested in Ballard’s research since the late 1960s, contributing to numerous ancient shipwreck discoveries and breakthroughs in deep-dive engineering and the study of plate tectonics. In 1985, Ballard helped lead an expedition that ended with the discovery of the wreck of the Titanic. His discoveries also include the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown and German battleship Bismarck. In 2010, the Ballard-founded Ocean Exploration Trust in partnership with the Sea Research Foundation launched the Nautilus Live website, which has attracted nearly 200,000 viewers from 173 countries. Exploration Now will link Nautilus with other U.S. research vessels undertaking ocean exploration and eventually include live feeds from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Okeanos Explorer and ONRowned research vessels Atlantis and Thomas G. Thompson, which have telepresence capabilities supported by the National Science Foundation. “It’s the next best thing to being aboard,” said Dr. Joan Cleveland, deputy director of ONR’s Ocean Sensing and Systems Division. “This is the kind of learning that will stick with students longer than lessons they learn through lecture and reading.” ONR provides the science and technology necessary to maintain the Navy and Marine Corps’ technological advantage. Through its affiliates, ONR is a leader in science and technology with engagement in 50 states, 70 countries, 1,035 institutions of higher learning and 914 industry partners.

Naval Station Norfolk hosts T.G.I. Fitness Challenge By MCSN Scott Barnes Navy Public Affairs Support Element East

NORFOLK

The 3rd annual T.G.I. Fitness Challenge was held onboard Naval Station (NAVSTA) Norfolk parade grounds in partnership with Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR), June 21. The goal of the event was to raise physical fitness awareness and to provide an outlet for organized team building in an event geared toward Sailors and commands. “Part of the Navy’s vision is focused on physical fitness,” said Senior Chief Master-at-Arms Marcus C. Blackwell, who represented USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). “That’s why we decided to get a team together and come out to this event to help build camaraderie and a good team environment.” The competition consisted of eight teams of 15 Sailors who competed in various events, including a T-drill race, relay race, obstacle course, tug-of-war and sandbell stacking, where teams stacked bags of sand with escalating weights. “It’s all about having a good time and getting out here to meet new people,” said Anthony Benning, Naval Station Norfolk fitness coordinator for MWR. “It provides fun ways to make physical training a little more interactive.” Throughout the event, commands competed for first, second and third place trophies, as well as a spirit award that was given to the most spirited team. “Events like these remind Sailors that fitness can be fun,” said Benning. “It doesn’t have to be just push-ups and sit-ups.” When the competition was over, USS Abraham Lincoln’s (CVN 72) team placed first, USS Iwo Jima’s (LHD 7) team took second and Commander, Navy Region MidAtlantic’s came in third. The Fleet Weather Center Strike Group Oceanographer Team won the spirit award. Editor’s note: In the past 20 years, the Navy has endured countless changes geared toward keeping Sailors fit, including advancements in fitness equipment, fitness programs, and command-centered events like the T.G.I. Fitness Challenge. To read additional articles in the 20th Anniversary series, visit www.flagshipnews.com.

Sailors watch as the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) departs Naval Station Norfolk for Newport News Shipbuilding.

Asthma is Conza’s platform issue Continued from front “I had an asthma attack at home and missed seven days of school,” said Conza. “I could not stop coughing and had trouble breathing. Two nebulizer treatments didn’t help. Once I got to the emergency room, they gave me another nebulizer and steroids to clear my lungs. [The ER staff] made me feel better.” Quickly assessing and treating severe asthma attacks is an area of expertise for NMCP, which provides state-of-the-art asthma care. “Portsmouth is a multi-specialty group with pediatric allergy, pulmonary and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit,” said Capt. Rees Lee, Pediatrics Department head. “We can care for the entire range, from the most severe to the run-ofthe-mill asthma. We exceed general community standards as a result.” “And we have made efforts throughout the Portsmouth enterprise, at the branch health clinics and the main campus, to promote spirometry to objectively assess asthma status,” Lee continued. “The fact that we do this puts us ahead of most care in the community. We can pick up asthma symptoms earlier. The whole nation

is doing this, but Portsmouth is using it at a greater rate than the community.” Spirometry is the most common pulmonary function test, which measures lung function, specifically the amount and/or speed of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for generating pneumotachographs, which are helpful in assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. “We also have an asthma protocol, where we provide a written action plan before a patient is discharged – a written treatment guide for use during an asthma attack, not just verbal guidance,” Lee added. “Our Pediatric Medical Home Port received the Level 3 National Committee for Quality Assurance certification because of these things that we are doing to proactively address common chronic diseases.”

and receive care from a civilian health care provider. As a second-year WWP member, Greer took advantage of the information gleaned from the summit, including learning how to write different kinds of resumes that he hopes will benefit him as he prepares to leave the Army in the next four months. “The other thing I need to work on is trying to find those hidden jobs, because only 20 percent of the jobs are advertised or made available to the public – the other 80 percent of jobs are filled through networking. That’s another thing I learned from coming here, where those jobs can be found and how to find them. Those two things alone made it worth the seven-hour commute,” said Greer. For retired 24-year Navy veteran Mike Brown, SSC Atlantic’s Military Admin Officer, manning a table at the summit served as an opportunity to pay forward the good fortune gleaned from wearing a Navy uniform for more than two decades. “Converting from military to civilian is always difficult, especially when quantifying military experience into civilian experience,” said Brown. “However, the intimate setting allowed us more time to talk to the participants one on one to find out their interests,

to have 15 percent of all of our hires be Wounded Warriors. According to Johnson, while that goal has been impacted by the hiring freeze brought about by sequestration, it’s still an SSC Atlantic priority. Each year, WWP hosts a summit to help warriors with the transition from military to civilian life by educating them about the project’s various resources. With economic empowerment as the theme of this year’s summit, the group focused on employment as its main objective. “We run 18 separate programs that fall under one of our four pillars: mind, body, economic empowerment and engagement,” said Brian Nichols, Warriors to Work program coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Region. “While the alumni summit as a whole is an engagement piece, we chose to focus this one on economic empowerment in an effort to teach them how to look for the job they want, not just the job they think they can do.” Charles Greer, an Army sergeant who suffered extensive injuries to his ankles requiring him to have reconstructive surgery, is a member of the project’s communitybased Warrior Transition Unit, which allows him to live at home in Asheville, N.C.

Enterprise will be dismantled at the shipyard prior to the scheduled commissioning of the next aircraft carrier Enterprise (CVN 80).

Rebecca A. Perron The parents of four-day-old Arya Zermeno place the bear next to the baby while Juliana Conza watches during Conza’s visit to NMCP.

A new asthma action plan was created for Juliana and more triggers were identified for her to avoid. Now that Conza’s asthma is under control again, she continues to keep up with her medications and avoids environmental triggers. “Being around a smoker is a big trigger for her,” said mom Lorie Conza, a former active duty nurse who worked in NMCPs Labor and Delivery. “With both of us parents in the medical field, we help monitor her condition at home. But she had a cold and I missed that something was going on with her lungs. That was humbling for me as her mom.” Using asthma control as her Miss Virginia Beach Preteen platform issue, Juliana helps promote asthma awareness by distributing EPA materials about asthma triggers, as well as a children’s book about air quality to 3-8 year olds, recently reading to other children at her elementary school and during a visit to a day care center.

and give them ideas for future jobs they might not have thought of before.” Although the current hiring freeze left them without the ability to provide information on any immediate employment opportunities with SSC Atlantic, it didn’t stop Brown and Johnson from offering their administrative skills and expertise. Both SSC Atlantic representatives left each summit participant with their contact info and the promise to review and provide feedback on any resumes sent to them.

carrier will be named Enterprise Continued from front Enterprise’s final trips underway and is expected to be the last opportunity for shipbuilders and crew to ride the ship. Shirley Langston was part of the original planning for the ship. “I worked on the ‘Big E’ from the beginning – it was my first project 55 years ago. It’s sad to see her go, but we are all proud of what she’s done,” she said. Throughout Enterprise’s 51-years in service, many of the career shipbuilders riding the ship worked on Enterprise during her scheduled maintenance periods. Henry Deese, an engineering analyst at the shipyard, talked about his time working on Enterprise. “Working on the ship from the beginning and following it throughout its life

had been rewarding. I was part if the team that started it and I’m part of the team that will finish it,” he said. :It’s sad to see Enterprise go when it’s the first, last and only one of its kind, but that’s life.” Capt. William C. Hamilton, Jr., Enterprise’s commanding officer, monitored the ship’s progress from the navigation bridge. “It’s sad to see a ship with such a history taken apart and the Sailors leave, but we are looking forward to commissioning the next Enterprise. Right now our focus is the safety of our Sailors and shipyard workers as we take the ship on this underway and continue the dismantling process.” Enterprise was formally inactivated at a ceremony held at Naval Station Norfolk pn Dec. 1, 2012. The announcement that the next nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, CVN-80, will be called Enterprise was made at this ceremony.

Safety key to fun in the sun this summer By Sarah Marshall Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Public Affairs

BETHESDA, MD.

Summer ofďŹ cially began on June 21 and doctors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) urge everyone to keep sun safety in mind while enjoying the warmer weather. Skin cancer is the most common form of all cancers, accounting for nearly half of all cancers in the U.S., according to Army Maj. (Dr.) Max Gratrix, a staff dermatologist at WRNMMC. In 2013, the most severe type of skin cancer, melanoma, will account for more than 76,600 cases, he added. “The best way to lower the risk of skin cancer is to avoid

long exposure to intense sunlight and practice sun safety,� said Gratrix, since the most common cause of skin cancer is sun exposure. The dermatologist suggests avoiding direct sun exposure between 10 a.m. and about 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are the most intense and harmful. One way to determine when the sun’s rays are at the strongest is to take note of your shadow – if it’s shorter than you, the sun’s rays are the strongest, he explained, and that’s when it’s best to avoid prolonged exposure. Regardless of what time of day you are outside – and whether it is warm, cool or cloudy – sunscreen should always be worn, according to

Planning ahead can be one of the biggest stress relievers when it comes to a permanent change of station (PCS) move. After a Sailor receives their orders, the first thing they should do is visit their local FFSC and meet with a Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) specialist, then attend a Smooth Move class or Moving Overseas workshop to learn the basics about a PCS move and how to start the process.

Stress less when you PCS By MC2 Andrea Perez Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, TENN.

Planning ahead can be one of the biggest stress relievers when it comes to a permanent change of station (PCS) move, Fleet and Family Service Center (FFSC) officials said, June 20. “For a lot of people [who move], the pre-departure can be both positive and negative,” said Diane Brown, Work and Family Life specialist, Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC). “You’re leaving what you’re familiar with, which can be very uncomfortable. But going on to something new can be exciting too, especially if it’s a location that you may have never been to. So it really depends on the person, on how up you are for change and how flexible you are.” After a Sailor receives their orders, the first thing they should do is visit their local FFSC and meet with a Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) specialist, then attend a Smooth Move class

or Moving Overseas workshop to learn the basics about a PCS move and how to start the process. Applications like Plan my Move on the Military OneSource website at www.militaryonesource. com will organize a Sailor’s to do list prior to their move. It provides a three-month calendar of steps a Sailor needs to take to ensure a smooth move for themselves and their family. Brown said sponsors can also help reduce a Sailor’s stress by finding answers ahead of time to any questions they have about their new location. Sailors who have not been assigned a sponsor can request one on the Military OneSource website with the Electronic Sponsorship Application and Training tool. “Service members should ask their sponsor a lot of questions,” said Brown. “I think good questions that the incoming service member can ask the sponsor is your best bet to relieving stress.” Other helpful websites include: ■ Housing Early Application Tool (HEAT) – https://www.dko. mil/heat/apply

■ Housing Service Center locator – www.cnic.navy.mil/HousingQuickReference ■ Schedule your PCS move – www.smartwebmove.navsup.navy. mil “Families definitely want to take a team approach to their PCS move, whether you divvy up whose going to do what each day, or what chores each person is responsible for prior to the move,” said Brown. “The more information you share with your family, the smoother your move will be.” She also said to not forget that moving can be especially stressful on children as well. “From a kid’s perspective, you’re leaving your house, your friends, you’re going to a new school ... that’s hard, that’s really hard,” said Brown. “If you are struggling and are tense and stressed out, your children will notice that. The more positive you are, the more positive they’re going to be.” Brown suggests getting kids involved in learning about the new location and the new installation by doing research. Maybe even let

them help pack and let them decide what items they may have outgrown and don’t want to bring with. Preparation, communication and family involvement are key to a less stressful PCS move. “Be aware that you and your spouse may handle things differently ... and recognize differences in coping strategies,” said Brown. “Some people look at moving as a really fun experience and as something positive. Some people who may have made really good friends or are leaving family may dread moving. Listen to each other. Stay positive.” For more news from Navy Personnel Command, visit www.navy. mil/local/npc.

So as I sit and write this I am also mapping out a plan for a PR (personal record). Usually when I talk about PRs it is about my lifting program or a time on a workout at the gym I pretty much live in, CrossFit Krypton. This time it is totally different. This will be the third time I run the Flagship Military Challenge and I cannot wait! For the past two years it has just been about finishing and having fun. The first year, I ran it literally off the couch. I didn’t train for it. I was not following any sort of workout program, I just got up and went since NewsChannel 3 was a sponsor. It was a blast even if I had to walk a bunch of it. The next time, I wanted to run the whole time. That was my goal and I accomplished that. Now, it is about speed. On July 27, I will actually be wearing a watch and trying to beat my time from the year before. I am now working out at least four times a week and eating a lot cleaner than I was that first year, so I think I can make it happen. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to have a ton of fun and can’t wait to watch my son finally do the one-mile fun run. Well, that is the only thing that could stop me from a PR. He says he actually wants to do the entire course. He’s been running track all spring and into summer, so he thinks he can manage to do it. We shall see. So lucky me, I either get a chance to PR or I get a chance to be by my kid’s side when he finishes his first obstacle course run. Those are two pretty great options I do believe! My point is this. It is an event you don’t want to miss. I have been there since the beginning and it has only gotten better with each year. No matter what your goal is, it is going to be a great time. Whether you walk the course or get out there and sprint the entire time (I will not be doing that), it is a great day spent with awesome people at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex. As with every year, it is for a great cause with portions of the proceeds going to the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia. You know you wanna! Team NewsChannel 3 will be out there in full force, so don’t be surprised if you hear use encouraging you along the way!

Portable careers for the military spouse

By Anne Kelly Fleet and Family Support Centers Norfolk

NORFOLK

If you are a part of the military spouse community, you have heard the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;portable career.â&#x20AC;? There are many misconceptions about what these careers entail and what is required to obtain them. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with the basics: A portable career is one that is in high demand nationally or globally with the required skills and education that can seamlessly transfer to another location. Sounds easy, right? The fact is, many of these careers though portable, require research and planning in order for a spouse to make the best decisions for them and their families. Now that you know the deďŹ nition, you are probably wondering what type of career ďŹ elds may be included. During my time with Fleet and Family Support Centers, many of the spouses I have worked with would say that teaching is the best answer. This is a great avenue to pursue. However, there are numerous restrictions placed upon this profession. Currently, there is a movement that would make teaching in various locations easier for spouses. This means that their credentials will be recognized and honored in more than just the locality that awarded the credential. This movement is still in its infancy, so my suggestion is to research the requirements of the educa-

tional system you will be teaching under and strive to meet those before, or soon after, you arrive. Many clients are also interested in teaching at the college level. Some colleges will allow this after earning a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, however, many state a candidate must have at least 18 graduate hours in a speciďŹ c discipline before they are allowed to teach. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world of education, a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree may require many different areas of coursework and oftentimes leaves students shy of this 18 hour requirement. If it is your goal to teach at this level, review your transcript, and if necessary, begin supplementing your education with the additional courses you will need. The medical ďŹ eld is a prime example of another portable career. People in this industry are always needed and highly sought after. Preparation is certainly key to a successful transition. Many of my clients have arrived frustrated due to the fact that they have experience, but in order to work in Virginia, they have to obtain a certiďŹ cation. This results in a delay of employment which can have a drastic affect on a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income. Luckily, this information is easy to ďŹ nd and often is as simple as contacting the national board or association of any occupation. Technology is an ever increasing industry. It is a great ďŹ eld that can often include telework positions. The dilemma many people in this industry face is which certiďŹ cations to get and how to stay competitive. Due to this

highly evolving occupation, there are many requirements companies are seeking out. There are also many facets of this ďŹ eld and an employee can be as diverse or focused as they want. If this is a ďŹ eld you are interested in pursuing, the ďŹ rst item on your checklist is to narrow your scope. You can choose hardware or software, networking or security, help desk or database administrator, etc. Once you ďŹ nd what areas you want to focus on, you can then begin your research. Look at employers you would like to work for and see what certiďŹ cations and education they value. Determine what would be needed to obtain your dream job and then head in that direction. I have only mentioned a few portable careers, yet, if you follow the deďŹ nition above and do the necessary research it will ease the stress of ďŹ nding employment while relocating. The resources that are available to a military spouse have grown exponentially over the last few years. If you would like additional information on how to secure employment as a military spouse, contact your local Fleet and Family Support Center who will gladly provide you a list of these resources and information on funding your education.

Starting your own online business lets you work from home By Elizabeth Klein In Gear Career

When military families PCS, one of the major concerns that spouses face is changing careers or ďŹ nding a new job in their new town. One way around this is by having an online business, something you can operate from the comfort of your own home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no matter how many times that home changes locations. By running your own business on the web, your job is automatically easily transportable. However, getting an online business up and running isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easy as just creating a catchy business name or posting pictures of your merchandise. In many cases you will be required to get permits or licenses, as well as registering with the state in order to collect and pay taxes. Before you start your online business venture, be sure to check out the U.S. Small Business Administration (www.sba. gov) for assistance and guidance in what rules and regulations you need to follow. Each county and state will have their own requirements, too, so you will need to research what your area requires. Additionally, check with your local county clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ ce and state clerk and become acquainted with any and all permits and licenses you need. Business licenses normally need to be renewed every year, so ensure that you keep current and up-to-date payments of your license or you will incur penalties and/or interest fees. Also make sure you comply with all ecommerce and intellectual property laws, which are outlined by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), (http://ftc.gov). Besides governmental licenses and permits, setting up an online business involves other steps, including: choosing and registering your domain name, selecting someone to host your website (there will be fees, maintenance, and upkeep costs associated with web hosting so be sure to do your homework ďŹ rst), building your website, trademarking your name/logo/slogan, and beginning to market your business.

Stock photo

If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking to create and host your own online website for your products or services, sites like eBay and Etsy make it easy to sell your goods. Depending on which site you choose and which plan you need, they charge the seller for both the products listed and a monthly fee. These charges can be paid by using a credit card or PayPal account. EBay has free options available to sellers, as well as online stores which you can set up for ďŹ&#x201A;at monthly rates, in addition to fees tied to the products. For even more information on how to sell on eBay, the company offers the eBay University Classroom, which instructs on basic selling for new sellers to set up an eBay store. These classes can be found in local areas so you might not have to travel far for instruction. Setting up an online business can provide you with peace of mind when it is time to move every few years. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about ďŹ nding your next job or changing careers, as you can move your career with you. Just be sure to have all your ducks in a row before starting your own online business and be aware of all legal and ďŹ nancial obligations to ensure your business is not only compliant, but is also a smashing success! In Gear Career is a non-proďŹ t organization dedicated to assisting career-minded military spouses. Spouses who wish to build their careers alongside their service members can get free advice, obtain resources and network with each other regardless of location.

PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP 2013 HOSTS NURSING CONFERENCE By MC2 Tim D. Godbee Navy Public Affairs Support Element West

VAIOLA,TONGA

MC2 Tim D. Godbee Australian Navy Able Seaman Tricia Armstrong (right) trains a nursing student on proper CPR techniques at the Vailoa Hospital during a Pacific Partnership 2013 nursing conference.

Pacific Partnership 2013 non-governmental organization volunteers, U.S. and partner nation service members held a nursing conference at the Vailoa Hospital, June 20. During the conference, Pacific Partnership personnel trained nursing students and teachers on proper cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques, mass casualty response and disaster preparedness. “We’re teaching basic life support to teachers so that they can walk away confident when they teach other people how to do it,” said New Zealand Army Sgt. Richard Gaill. “From here they’ll finish their training and part this knowledge with people from their community.”

■ partnered countries Pacific Partnership is joined by partner nations that include: Australia, Canada, Colombia, France, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and New Zealand to strengthen disaster response preparedness around the Indo-AsiaPacific Region.

Tilema Cama, principal of the Vailoa School of Nursing, said the training is critical to the intuition’s teaching certification. “We have requirements to meet in order to accredit our program every year that include for the teachers to be certified CPR practitioners,” said Cama. “When the Pacific Partnership team came around, we identified

YOU’VE DEFENDED OUR FUTURE.

this as one of the key things that we needed and they agreed to support it.” In addition to medical certifications, Pacific Partnership personnel also held presentations on natural disaster response and preparedness. U.S. Army Capt. Linda Jones said that the training correlated well with the students and teachers because of their personal experiences with recent natural disasters in Tonga. “The emotion was very high in the room. The island is so small that the nurses that go out and help the injured during disasters are often helping people that they know and love,” she said. “A lot of them come home and see family and friends that they’ve had to rescue from disasters, so they often experience post-traumatic stress. We discussed methods of caring for themselves and others simultaneously.”

Hagel: Opening combat jobs to women the right thing to do By Nick Simeone American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON

Opening more jobs in the military to women – in particular lifting the combat exclusion – is the right thing to do, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said, June 20, as he brushed aside any notion that the Armed Forces would have to lower standards to do so. Hagel’s comments came during a visit with troops at U.S. Strategic Command at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb. in response to a question about whether the policy change could affect mission success. On Tuesday, senior defense and military officials unveiled the services’ respective plans for lifting the combat exclusion for women. “I think everyone understands it’s the right thing,” he said. “It’s not a matter of lowering standards to assist women to get into combat positions.” Hagel added that part of the process will be finding “the right balance of implementation.” The plan to remove gender-based standards was announced by former Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta in January. The branches have a deadline of January 2016 to follow through – including ending the ban on women serving in the Navy SEALs and the Army Rangers – with any exceptions requiring the approval of the defense secretary and the Joint Chiefs chairman. “Why shouldn’t [women] have the same opportunities as men?” Hagel responded to his questioner. Hagel also said increases in cases of sexual assault in the military are a “scourge and a very, very dark mark on all of the success of this institution.” He said “there is no higher priority” he has as defense chief “than to make everybody accountable all the time, up and down the line.”

The plan to remove genderbased standards was announced by former Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta in January.

diving, EOD techniques practiced during exercise Navy Diver 2nd Class Travis Wooden dives off the Romanian ship Saturn during the Eurasia Partnership Dive 2013. The dive aims to increase diving interoperability, standardization of procedures and equipment familiarity, and includes teams from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Ukraine and the United States. Continued from B1 “Surface-supplied diving is a type of diving where your air supply stays on the surface,” said Navy Diver 2nd Class Travis Wooden, assigned to EOD Mobile Unit 8. “We went to depths of 40 meters here and did exercises on the bottom such as flange projects and using hydraulic tools that are used for salvage projects and missions.” Participants also used the ship’s decompression chamber to simulate surface decompression, a method used during inclement weather or strong currents. The chamber simulates deep-water pressure and slowly changes to atmospheric pressure, allowing the body to adjust. This method is lifesaving when they are unable to acclimate on their dive ascent. As divers aboard the sal-

vage ship Grigore Antipa practiced deep sea diving techniques, those aboard the diving support ship Saturn practiced EOD techniques, including underwater demolition and mine countermeasures. “I think the underwater demolition exercises went very well,” said Lt. Cmdr. Michael Jordache, Romanian Navy. “We practiced using real explosives. Our standard operating procedures are common with the U.S. and we tried to show the other countries how similar we all work.” “Diving is unique, because your life depends on your fellow divers,” said Lt. Cmdr. Gary Hunter, a U.S. exercise planner for EP Dive 2013. “Working together helps to increase interoperability of these different navies and therefore builds up trust and friendship.”

Adm. Frank Kelso II, 79, former Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), died Sunday, June 23, following injuries sustained from a fall earlier in the week. Kelso, a native of Fayetteville, Tenn., served as Chief of Naval Operations from June 29, 1990 until April 23, 1994. As the Chief of Naval Operations and throughout his career as a naval officer, Kelso was renowned for his intelligence, integrity and upstanding character. “The Nation and the Navy mourn the loss of Adm. Frank Kelso, who passed away in Norfolk over the weekend. In a career spanning 38 years he served in positions of responsibility from commander of two submarines to Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and finally as Chief of Naval Operations,” said Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Ray Mabus. “... Adm. Kelso was a submariner, an accomplished commander and an unmatched leader known for his intelligence and integrity. The thoughts of the 900,000 Sailors, Marines and civilians who make up the Department of the Navy go out to our fallen shipmate and his family. Semper Fortis.” “Adm. Frank Kelso’s bold leadership and innovative thinking guided the Navy through times of war and significant drawdown at the end of the Cold War,” said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert. “The ability to cut against the grain and find new and creative solutions for the Navy are what set Adm. Kelso apart from his peers. It was his strength of character and surefire integrity that ensured his success as a former CNO and to a higher degree solidified the formidable legacy of a great life that Adm. Frank Kelso leaves behind. It was an honor to have served with him and we are a better Navy due to his leadership and faithful commitment to our Sailors, civilians and their families.” Kelso eventually returned to live in Fayetteville, Tenn., in 2003, a decade after retiring from the Navy. He was the third of three submariners in a row who served as CNO in in the 80s and 90s. As CNO he led the Navy in a period of significant drawdown of U.S. naval forces in the wake of the end of the Cold War and the ballyhooed “peace dividend.” Concurrently, he oversaw the introduction of new platforms and systems that improved capabilities, in-

cluding precision strike operations. The nation persistently called on the naval capabilities throughout his tour, starting with Operation Desert Storm. As CNO, he also oversaw revolutionary changes within the OPNAV staff and profoundly changed the means by which the Navy processed and made decisions. In keeping with joint staff practices, he changed “OP” codes to “N” codes, and the staff was reorganized to align with a “Napoleonic” arrangement used by both the Army and the Joint Staff. In a period of dramatic change, he helped to transform not merely the organization, but also the processes by which information could be shared and considered. He is credited with dramatically changing the means by which more informed decisions could be made by the Navy. Kelso was a strong advocate for the integration of women, particularly in the wake of the 1991 Tailhook Convention during which numerous incidents of sexual assault and harassment were found to have occurred. He is survived by his second wife, Georgeanna, his four children and numerous grandchildren. Landess McCown, his first wife of 56 years, passed away in 2012. Kelso, who would have been 80 on July 11, will be buried in Fayetteville in the historic Rose Hill Cemetery on Saturday. Complete text of statements from Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert on the passing of Adm. Kelso is available at www.navy.mil/submit/ display.asp?story_id=75026.

Cmdr. (Dr.) Adam Saperstein, a Family Medicine practitioner at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Additionally, sunscreen should be applied every two to three hours, even if it is a sport or “anti-sweat” type, and it should offer UVA and UVB protection, since both types of the sun’s rays can cause cancer, he said. Both doctors recommend using a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. This level of protection will cover 97 percent of the sun’s rays, they said. Saperstein added that sunscreens with an SPF of 50 or greater, do not offer significantly greater coverage. When it comes to the price tag, he said sunscreen doesn’t have to be expensive to mean it’s “better,” which is often a misconception. “The worst sun screen you can buy is the one you don’t put on,” he said. Pick a type that works best for you and your children, and be sure to apply it at least 30 minutes before sun exposure so it has time to absorb, Gratrix added. He went on to note certain clothing can also offer protection from the sun. “Choose comfortable clothes made of tightly woven fabrics that you cannot see through when held up to the light,” said Gratrix. “It’s also important to make sure the fabric is light, and breathable, during warmer weather to avoid over-heating.” Wearing a wide-brimmed hat can also offer additional protection from the sun, so can sun glasses with 100 percent UVA and UVB absorption, to protect the eyes and surrounding skin, Gratrix added. Everyone should follow these precautions, regardless of age, race, gender or skin type, the dermatologist continued. He also urges individuals to know the signs of skin cancer – a mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest, or is changing in size, shape or color. The most common type of skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma (BCC), which often looks like a flesh-colored bump, while squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can appear as a firm bump, scaly patch or ulcer. Early treatment, and skin exams, can help prevent both BCC and SCC from spreading to other areas of the body, he said. Melanoma, the most severe form of skin cancer, also has a high cure rate when detected early. It often appears as a mole or a new dark spot on the skin. More than 8,500 Americans die every year from melanoma, making it the deadliest form of skin cancer, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). Gratrix went on to note, those with a family history of skin cancer, sunburns, or scarring caused by a disease or burn, should take extra precaution, as these factors may increase their risk for skin cancer. The dermatologist added tanning beds are never a “safe” alternative to the sun and can also increase the risk for skin cancer. Saperstein added people should not try to avoid the outdoors or fear the sun altogether since it has its benefits, like providing vitamin D. Gratrix agreed, stating sun exposure should always be in moderation. “You can still enjoy the outdoors while using sun safety,” he said.

The U.S. Navy’s Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 101 received the Navy’s first F-35C Lightning II carrier variant aircraft from Lockheed Martin at the squadron’s home at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., June 22. The F-35C is a fifth generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, networkenabled operations and advanced sustainment. The F-35C will enhance the flexibility, power projection, and strike capabilities of carrier air wings and joint task forces and will complement the capabilities of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, which currently serves as the Navy’s premier strike fighter. By 2025, the Navy’s aircraft carrier-based air wings will consist of a mix of

USS Freedom supports Marine amphibious assault force in CARAT Malaysia By MC1 Cassandra Thompson

Sailors assigned to USS Freedom (LCS 1) clear the flight deck of debris prior to launching an MH60R helicopter for an amphibious assault exercise off the coast of Malaysia.

U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs

SOUTH CHINA SEA

Sailors aboard USS Freedom (LCS 1) had a unique opportunity to support amphibious assault exercise when Marines from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard USS Tortuga (LSD 46) conducted an amphibious raid with Malaysian Army paratroopers, June 22. The littoral combat ship Freedom and the forward deployed amphibious dock landing ship Tortuga are in Malaysia participating in Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) 2013. Sailors assigned to Freedom’s surface warfare mission package acted as safety observers from the ship’s 11meter rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB), while the embarked crew of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 73 provided aerial support with Freedom’s MH-60R helicopter. With its shallow draft, Freedom was able to anchor closer to the beach than other units and monitor the landing events. “It was a good proof of concept for LCS and the squadron of the capabilities we could provide to the mission,” said Lt. Mike Roselli, attached to HSM 73. “The Romeo was able to provide maritime support to the amphibious force. We could if needed provide Hellfire [missiles], torpedoes or a search and rescue swimmer.” With just 91 Sailors aboard,

the Freedom crew routinely supports more than one evolution a day. CARAT Malaysia was another opportunity for these Sailors to show their dedication and drive. “I was on the picket boat that provided security for the ship,” said Engineman 3rd Class Jennifer Ordenana. “Since CARAT started, I’ve been part of multiple exercises with both the engineering department and VBSS – from refueling the helo in the pump room to being a small boat enMC3 Karolina A.

The unforgettable Cat (in the Hat) that changed the world WILLIAMSBURG

■ did you know? Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka, Dr. Seuss) created “The Cat” in 1957 and he has since appeared in six Seuss books.

Name someone wise, thoughtful, uncanny, playful, mischievous, shrewd, known internationally and who nevertheless is unforgettable. How about “The Cat in the Hat” from the pen and brush of Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka, Dr. Seuss)? The “Cat” will be front-and-center during July at Williamsburg’s Art-cade Gallery of Art as it hosts its 13th annual Art of Dr. Seuss Exhibit and sale. Featured is a spectrum of artwork by Dr. Seuss ranging from his book illustrations and “Secret Art” he did for his own enjoyment to wall sculptures crafted for commercial advertising clients in the 1930s. A featured print provides the theme of this year’s show: “The Cat That Changed the World,” reproduced from Ted Geisel’s first concept drawing of his character. The original art is permanently housed at the University of California, San Diego.

There’s more to that print’s title than just a catchy phrase. And this opinion extends beyond the art world. The Library of Congress recently chose 88 influential books that have “shaped Americans’ views of their world and the world’s views of America.” Among the likes of Twain, Whitman and Thoreau stood Dr. Seuss and his iconic creation – “The Cat in the Hat,” thecat that changed the world of children’s literature. Since his creation in 1957, “The Cat” has guided children and their adult companions through the trials and tribulations of life’s experiences. And during the same 50 year career Dr. Seuss created a whole menagerie of other memorable characters who each in their own way played a role in the reader’s journey of growing up. Dr. Seuss has become the definitive children’s literacy author of all time (more than 600,000,000 books sold) and his cat continues to “step out,” enjoying his rightful legacy as the visual icon of our literary

past, present and future. The Art-cade, located at 1321 Jamestown Rd., Suite 204 in the Williamsburg Office Park, is one about 30 art galleries in the country where authorized Dr. Seuss artwork can be purchased. It has a large inventory of these limited edition prints and sculptures. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday.

Explore the War of 1812 with tours, family activities and author lecture HAMPTON

Don’t know much about the War of 1812? With the help of two very special events at the Hampton History Museum exploring the significance of the conflict on the city’s past, all of that is about to change. An open house with a bus tour, special curator gallery tours, family activities and re-enactors will take place on June 29, and an author lecture focusing on the occupation of Hampton is scheduled for July 1. “The War of 1812: America’s Other Forgotten War,” taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, offers visitors a chance to take a special bus tour of city sites from the War of 1812, including guided tours of the Hampton History galleries with Hampton History Museum Curator Mike Cobb (highlighting artifacts from the conflict), family activities (including one where children can make their own star-spangled banner), and a re-enactor encampment. The event, including the bus tour, is free and open to the public. The bus tour leaves at 10 a.m. and seating is limited. Early arrival is suggested. Members of the Fort Norfolk Garrison reenacting group will portray Soldiers from the 115th Virginia Militia who fought at the Battle of Hampton in June 1813 against superior numbers of British infantry. This will commemorate the militia’s heroic defense of Hampton and the British occupation and sack of the town. The militia will display the weapons, accouterments, and clothing used by the Virginia Militia during America’s conflict with Great Britain during the War of 1812. The Rutherford Rifle carried by a Virginia Militiamen during the battle of Hampton and other artifacts related to the occupation of Hampton will be on exhibit in the museum’s galleries. Everyone who attends will receive a voucher for a free cupcake when they dine in at the Grey Goose that day. “The Rape of Hampton ... or Was There One? The British Occupation of July, 1813,” is the topic of the Hampton History Museum’s Port Hampton Lecture, taking place at 7 p.m. on Monday. Historian Stuart L. Butler, author of “Defending the Old Dominion: Virginia and its Militia in the War of 1812,” will share his interpretation of the controversial attack on Hampton. His presentation will address this important, but often overlooked, event in the city’s history. In mid-June 1813 2,700 British Soldiers and their French allies landed at Celey Plantation near Hampton. The local militia were defeated and dispersed. The invaders torched buildings,

Museum, ‘A Day in Infamy: A Teen’s Memories of Pearl Harbor’ event Join Eloise Myers as she recounts her memories of the attack on Pearl Harbor in “A Day in Infamy: A Teen’s Memories of Pearl Harbor,” part of the Hampton History Museum’s Oral History Project “Our Stories, Our Time” taking place June 27 from 7 to 8 p.m. Following Myers presentation, attendees are encouraged to share their own memories to be videotaped for the museum’s collections. Myers was awakened at 7:48 a.m. Sunday morning on Dec. 7, 1941 to the sound of Japanese bombs exploding at the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. The teenage girl’s father hurriedly put on his Navy uniform and ran out of the house to take part in the action. As Eloise looked on as 353 Japanese fighters, bombers and torpedo planes attacked the unsuspecting base and the Pacific Fleet ships at anchor. The chaotic scene was unforgettable as fire and dense smoke rose from the many battleships, cruisers and destroyers that were sunk or severely damaged in the onslaught. Several thousand valiant Americans died and many were wounded in the inferno. President Franklin D. Roosevelt as he made his declaration of war against Japan said Pearl Harbor was, “a day that would live in infamy.” The cost for the event is free for museum members and $3 for nonmembers, and includes entry into the Hampton History Museum’s galleries. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is limited.

looted, and terrorized men, women, and children. The news of the sack of Hampton spread throughout America. Margaret Ann Bonyer, living in the Shenandoah Valley would write “From such nefarious enemies good Lord please deliver us.” Andrew Jackson rallied his troops and the people of New Orleans to defend the city against an impending British attack with the reports of the outrages committed at Hampton. The lecture is free to museum mem-

2013 Lincoln MKS sedan

Lincoln offers an elegant ďŹ&#x201A;agship sedan By Ken Chester, Jr. Motor News Media Corporation

The full-size Lincoln MKS sports an updated, sleeker style for 2013 that headlines a range of improvements that rivals more expensive luxury-class contenders. Better handling, increased power, improved fuel efďŹ ciency, additional standard equipment, more reďŹ nement and new technologies that help drivers reduce accident risks provide luxury customers with important new reasons to consider the new MKS. Exterior styling updates include new grille, hood, front fenders, HID headlamps, front fascia, 19 and 20-inch aluminum wheels, decklid, rear fascia, LED tail lamps and exhaust tips. Improving quietness, additional noise barriers and absorbers have been placed in the front wheel wells, around the shock towers, under the hood and in the trunk. Redesigned exterior rearview mirrors reduce wind noise Available in MKS and MKS EcoBoost models, base power for the Lincoln ďŹ&#x201A;agship is generated by a 3.7L V6 prime mover bolted to a 6F-50 SelectShift six-speed automatic.

All-wheel-drive is standard with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and an available option with the 3.7L V6 engine. The MKS is also equipped with Lincoln Drive Control. This is an automatic system that delivers an ideal balance of a smooth ride with conďŹ dent handling as it intuitively responds to the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commands and the road itself.

to Sport automatically shifts handling performance, ride ďŹ rmness, throttle response, shift feel, steering response and traction control/ electronic stability control parameters Throughout the decades of the automobileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development, suspension engineers have worked tirelessly to ďŹ nd an ideal balance between smooth ride and satisfying, conďŹ dent handling. Traditionally, smooth-riding cars have not handled well, and sharp-handling cars have ridden harshly. The new Lincoln MKS solves this dilemma with Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) as standard equipment. Regardless of road conditions, drivers will enjoy a markedly smoother, more controlled ride because CCD is always tuning and reďŹ ning the ride quality. The result of some 4,000 hours of development time, CCD delivers its on-road beneďŹ t by signiďŹ cantly extending the chassisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; capabilities compared to a chassis with nonadjustable struts and shock absorbers, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dampersâ&#x20AC;? by chassis engineers.

Truex Jr. ends 218-race losing streak with road course victory at Sonoma By Rick Minter Universal Uclick

Back in 2007, his sophomore season in the Sprint Cup Series, Martin Truex Jr. looked like the circuit’s next big winner. Driving for Dale Earnhardt Inc., he won back-to-back Nationwide Series championships in 2004 and 2005, and had two Top-5 finishes, including a second-place finish at Homestead, and five Top-10s in his rookie Cup season of 2006. In 2007, he continued to improve, getting his first Cup victory, at Dover, and making the cut for the Chase for the Sprint Cup. The 2008 season wound up being a letdown, as he finished 15th in the standings, with a best finish of fourth, at New Hampshire. He won the pole for the 2009 Daytona 500, but that was the bright spot, as he finished 23rd in the final standings. Truex Jr. wound up being hampered by the demise of the Earnhardt racing empire and moved to Michael Waltrip’s new team in 2010. Since then, his on-track results have steadily improved, but a return trip to Victory Lane continued to elude him, until June 23, when he scored a popular win in the 25th annual Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. His 218-race losing streak, the secondlongest stretch between Cup victories in NASCAR history behind Bill Elliott’s 226 from 1994 to 2001, was over. Understandably, it was an emotional time for the 32-year-old Truex Jr., who also helped his primary sponsor, NAPA, end its own Sprint Cup losing streak, which dated back to 2001, when Truex Jr.’s team owner Michael Waltrip was the auto parts giant’s regular driver. Sunday’s win also was the first in Cup for Truex Jr.’s crew chief, Chad Johnston. “I’m just so glad this [losing streak] is out of the way, because we’ve been so close, and I feel like now we’ve gotten this one out of the way, we can do it a whole bunch more,” Truex Jr. said in Victory Lane. Waltrip said in the winner’s interview after the race that even as one disappointment or another took away chances for Truex Jr. to win races, he never lost confidence in him or the crew of his No. 56 Toyota. “I believe in this man,” said Waltrip. “He can drive a car as good as anybody on the track. Chad [Johnston] is new to the crew chiefing game. He joined us as an engineer and he’s worked his way up, and he called the perfect

race, and he’s been on his game all year long. It’s really fun to see these two mature and I think they can do a lot of special things over the next few years.” As a driver, Waltrip had experience with long losing streaks. He ran 462 Cup races without a victory before winning the 2001 Daytona 500, the same race where his car owner, Dale Earnhardt, died in a last-lap crash. He said that day at Daytona came to mind as he leaned in to Truex Jr.’s car to congratulate him after he took the checkered flag at Sonoma. “I leaned in and there were tears in his eyes, and you could feel the elation and the joy and the relief,” said Waltrip. “And as I did that, it took me straight back to 2001, when I finally pulled into Victory Lane and was able to briefly celebrate what was the greatest racing day of my career. I saw all that same emotion and the same feeling in Martin.”

While Martin Truex Jr. spent much of the June 23 race at Sonoma cruising at the head of the pack, leading 51 of 110 laps, including the final 28, two drivers behind him were putting on a show, charging through the field. Jeff Gordon, a five-time winner at Sonoma, overcame an early-race penalty for pitting too soon after the caution flag waved and finished second. His finish allowed him to move up three spots in the points standings, to 13th, with 10 races to run before the start of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “This team has been faced with a lot worse adversity than that,” Gordon said of his setback on Sunday. “Luckily, we had a fast race car and stayed with our pit strategy, and things went our way. We just had a really good race car and were able to drive up through. That part was a lot of fun.” Kurt Busch had two penalties for speeding on pit road, which put him a lap down at one point, but he worked his way forward to bring his No. 78 Chevrolet home in fourth place. “Yeah, we were fast, even on pit road ... twice,” Busch joked. “I messed up, flat-out. I didn’t hit my tachometer righ and I was speeding both times. I just put myself in a position that was poor, trying to get too much on pit road. But man, this Furniture Row Chevy was fast.” He also gained three spots in the driver standings, from 20th to 17th, and is 28 points out of 10th place, the final spot guaranteed a Chase berth after the 26-race regular season.

A LOOK BACK AT THE ‘SPIDER’ AS HE PREPARES FOR NEXT TITLE DEFENSE By Thomas Gerbasi UFC.com

As expected, Silva successfully defended his UFC middleweight title against heavy underdog Cote. What no one saw coming was the ending, as a competitive fight ended prematurely when Cote blew out his knee in the third round, awarding the bout to Silva via TKO. The win was Silva’s eighth in the UFC against no losses and his fourth successful title defense.

Of all the records UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has shattered, the most impressive may be the one that has him sitting at the top of the pack for most successful title defenses in UFC history. With the Spider’s mark currently at 10 as he prepares for his UFC 162 main event against Chris Weidman on July 6, Thales Leites, UFC 97, April 18, 2009 we’re going to take a look back at each of those Result: Silva, unanimous decision defenses as we called them on fight night. Mama said there would be nights like this. In his first five rounder, Silva earned the UFC Nate Marquardt, UFC 73, July 7, 2007 record for most consecutive wins and tied the Result: Silva, TKO, 1st round mark for most consecutive title defenses with It was supposed to be one of Silva’s toughest his unanimous decision win over Leites, but the tests, but instead, his win over respected chal- lackluster 25-minute bout earned more boos than lenger Marquardt at the Arco Arena proved to be cheers for its sometimes bizarre lack of action. one of his greatest victories, as he defended his “It’s unfortunate that things sometimes turn UFC middleweight crown for the first time with out that way, but when you’re not in here, it’s a decisive first round TKO. hard to tell what going on sometimes,” said Silva. “Sorry.” Rich Franklin, UFC 77, Oct. 20, 2007 Result: Silva, TKO, 2nd round Demian Maia, UFC 112, April 10, 2010 If anyone doubted the validity of Silva’s first Result: Silva, unanimous decision win over Franklin in 2006, they weren’t doubtSilva’s return to the Octagon after an eight ing it anymore after the UFC middleweight month absence wasn’t as explosive as his prechampion defended his crown for the second vious outing, a first-round knockout of Forrest time with a second-round stoppage of the man Griffin in a non-title light heavyweight bout. he won the title from in a more competitive, but Not even close. equally dominant fight.

But in Result: Silva,TKO, 3rd round the fifth, it was Silva pulling off an incredible

triangle choke that allowed him to retain his title and get the last word on the challenger. “I knew that I was losing the first four rounds,” said Silva, who made the seventh successful defense of his title. “Chael put on a hell of a fight tonight.” Vitor Belfort, UFC 126, February 5, 2011 Result: Silva, knockout, 1st round Belfort was widely considered to be the most dangerous threat to Silva’s middleweight title reign. So Silva did what you’re supposed to do to such threats – he eliminated him immediately, knocking out Belfort in the first round to retain his crown for the eighth time. In the process, Silva broke a tie with Matt Hughes for most successful title defenses in UFC history. “That’s just one of the tricks I was working on,” said Silva, who, for all intended purposes, ended the bout with a spectacular front kick to the chin. Yushin Okami, UFC 134, Aug. 27, 2011 Result: Silva, TKO, 2nd round Silva added to his record number of title defenses (nine) and consecutive UFC wins (14) in stopping No. 1 contender Okami in the second round of the UFC RIO main event. The 36-year old Silva isn’t getting older – he’s getting better. Chael Sonnen II, UFC 148, July 7, 2012 Result: Silva, TKO, 2nd round The anticipation and animosity was unlike anything seen in recent history, but after six minutes and 55 seconds, Silva answered the pointed barbs of Sonnen the only way he knows how, with the limbs that have led him to his 15th UFC win without a loss. Silva left no questions, retaining his middleweight title for the 10th time with a second round TKO of his most heated rival, one that has chased him down since their epic first battle in 2010.

Experience the thrill of a European circus in Hampton Roads By Yiorgo Contributing Writer

VIRGINIA BEACH

The thrill and excitement of going to a European circus is finally here in Hampton Roads, and with Cirquesa Dreamquest, local residents and tourists alike will be at the edge of their seats all summer with jaw dropping, heart pounding excitement. Cirquesa Dreamquest was conceived and produced by brothers Noe and Ivan España, fifth-generation heirs to a variety of circus history with family roots in both Spain and Mexico. The show features performances by Noe and his wife, Vivien – an eighth-generation circus performer – along with their children, Noemi and Elan; Ivan and his children, Sian and Zore; and several

additional artists and performers. I was glued to my seat, nervously biting my nails as Noe and Ivan worked up high without a net. “The Sky Wheel of Terror,” consisted of two huge hollow wheels constantly turned above the audience’s heads as they ran inside, on top and everywhere else they could take a hold of, which kept the audience gasping for air during a few close calls. And Vivien, along with Allison Blei, performed a daring aerial chiffon duet that was hypnotizing. The children of both brothers are an integral part of the storyline, with Noemi and Elan pulling double and triple duty. Noemi on the aerial net, hula hoops and as a contortionist is a visual delight. And Elan portrays Michael, who takes the audience on a fantasy journey of self-discovery, learning lessons along the way.

The woman sitting behind me kept her eyes completely closed during the mesmerizing performance of husband and wife duo, Ottavio and Naomi Gesmundo. Their act consists of Ottavio using a crossbow to shoot an arrow while Naomi holds various objects, shrinking in size each time. Additionally, the strong man feats of strength and balance of Yani Kostov and Valeri Lyubchev have to be seen to believe. Normally one would have to travel to locations like Barcelona, Spain; Budapest, Hungary; and Rome, Italy, to see a show like this. Instead, Cirquesa Dreamquest has it all under huge Italian-made tents that are climate controlled with bucket seats … and honestly, there’s not a bad seat in the house, giving the audience a magnificent view of the action and excitement.

David Beloff

Cirquesa Dreamquest is a spectacle beyond one’s wildest dreams. Come and witness breathtaking athleticism at its finest. From jugglers and clowns, to balancing trapeze and high wire antics, to chair stacking and Icarian games … even a few local dancers, too. It’s truly an unforgettable and unique experience for people of all ages. Cirquesa Dreamquest shows are held at the Rudee Inlet Loop in Virginia Beach (Atlantic Ave. and 3rd Street). Ticket prices start at $12.95 for children and $37.95 for adults (Silver Section). For military per-

sonnel, use code “MIL” when purchasing tickets online and receive a special $4 discount. For locals only, use code “LOC” and receive a special $3 discount. You must show a valid ID when picking up tickets. The two-hour shows will run through Sept. 2, with limited weekends announced at a later date.

- Gary Guller, on descending from Mount Everest

overcomingdisabilities

GIVING CONSENT TO A FULL, ACTIVE LIFE By Roger Whiteway Contributing Writer

â&#x20AC;&#x153;First one-armed man to summit Mt. Everestâ&#x20AC;? said the headline. But, there is so much more to Gary Gullerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishments and life journey. An avid mountaineering enthusiast, Guller lost his arm at age 20 during a climbing accident that killed one of his friends. With the support of his family, he pushed through some dark days following this tragedy until he came to realize he could climb again. Later, it occurred to Guller that he could also help other disabled individuals realize their dreams of tackling big physical challenges, speciďŹ cally climbing in the Himalayas. In 2000, he led a group of disabled individuals that included a wheelchair bound athlete as well as a paraplegic to the base camp of Mount Everest with the help of Sherpa guides. What Guller learned and what he saw during this experience proved the unlimited capability of people we label as disabled, but are just as focused, driven and determined as whole-bodied people to set a goal and succeed in achieving it. Ten years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan have left many service men and women without limbs. And the Boston marathon bombings showed us that IEDs, and the injuries they produce, are not unique to the military or the Middle East. Many young people accustomed to active physical activity now live with miss-

ing or partial limbs, and face the challenge of proving to themselves and others that their injury cannot deďŹ ne who they are. Many give their mental consent to compete in sports. To get to this point, they often ďŹ nd that their injury has forced them to investigate who they really are beyond, or in spite of, the damaged limb. In a sense, it has opened new opportunities to understand their spiritual nature that no IED or accident can touch or alter. Guller recently published a book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make Courtesy of Glow Images Others Greater â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Everest to the Board View of the summit of Mount Everest from the base camp.
