Less than 48 hours after USS Nitze missiles destroyed radar sites in Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus reiterated a stern message pierside from the destroyer’s home port. “You attack us at your peril,” Mabus said. The secretary spoke Friday at a Norfolk Naval Station meeting with sailors and Marines. He stopped short of saying whether the
strike – a response to two earlier incidents this week in which missiles were lobbed at the Norfolk-based USS Mason from the rebel-held territory – indicated a deepening role for the Navy in Yemen’s civil war. The Obama administration and the Pentagon promised Thursday to respond to any new provocations from the Houthis. “We’ll see what happens in that part of the world,” Mabus said. Mabus, a former surface warfare officer and governor of Mississippi, spoke with service members just weeks after he and the Navy’s
top leaders announced the end of a 241-year tradition of referring to enlisted sailors by their job titles – known as rates – in favor of calling them by rank. As part of that Sept. 30 announcement, Navy leaders also issued a plan to reclassify ratings into grouped occupational specialties and other modernizations intended to offer sailors greater flexibility and opportunities for promotion and cross-training. The moves are meant to retain sailors as well as better trans» See VISIT | A9
Tough, bold, ready: A family’s naval service legacy
A satisfying career fulfilling Navy’s needs
By Tamara R. Dabney
On October 13th, the Navy will celebrate its 241st birthday. This year’s theme, “America’s Sailor. For 241 Years: Tough, Bold, and Ready” echoes the legacy of honor, courage, and commitment Sailors have kept and passed down since 1775. In the Campbell family, this legacy has been passed down for three generations, from father to son to grandson. The Navy tradition in the Campbell family began with Bruce Campbell. He served as a machinist’s mate during World War II, 1942-1948. World War II was a period of tremendous advancement for the Navy. Marked by technological innovation and the unyielding patriotism of the tough, young Sailors who had been drafted to serve during the war, this era saw America’s Navy become the greatest the world had ever known. Bruce Campbell’s son, David Campbell, watched and admired his father’s toughness and loyalty to his country and family. » See LEGACY | A9
The following is a statement released today by Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook on U.S. military strikes against radar sites in Yemen: “Early this morning local time, the U.S. military struck three radar sites in the Houthicontrolled territory on Yemen’s Red Sea coast. Initial assessments show the sites were destroyed. The strikes – authorized by President Obama at the recommendation of Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford – targeted radar sites involved in the recent missile launches threatening USS Mason and other vessels operating in international waters in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb [strait]. “These limited self-defense strikes were conducted to protect our personnel, our ships, and our freedom of navigation in this important maritime passageway. The United States will respond to any further threat to our ships and commercial traffic, as appropriate, and will continue to maintain our freedom of navigation in the Red Sea, the Bab al-Mandeb [strait], and elsewhere around the world.”

When James Walters joined the Navy in June of 2007, he wasn’t sure what job he would be doing, but he thought nuclear power “sounded pretty cool.” He would soon learn nuclear power not only sounds cool, but it is one of the most rewarding and essential job programs in the Navy. Armed with an intense drive to be successful and the desire to be part of something great, the former National Honor Society scholar was excited to enter the Navy’s Nuclear Power Program. The Navy needed intelligent, motivated recruits to work in nuclear power and he fit the bill. “I actually joined the Navy thinking that I was going to be working with nuclear weapons,” Walters said. “After I realized that I would actually be working with nuclear power plants, I was very excited.” Walter’s excitement was rooted in the fact the U.S. Navy boasts the most formidable fleet of submarines and aircraft carriers in the world.

Iwo Jima is taking on the additional personnel, equipment and material as they begin to support HADR missions in Haiti. “Mesa Verde has done a great job getting things started down here, and we are excited to build on the solid foundation that they have built here in Haiti,” Iwo Jima commanding officer Capt. James Midkiff said. “The integration of the Navy and Marine Corps teams has been outstanding and each Sailor and Marine on board is ready to assist any way they can.” In addition to the swap with Mesa Verde, Iwo Jima

USS George H.W. Bush represents 241 years of excellence
CNAL celebrates Navy birthday, reflects on history By PO1 Christopher Lindahl CNAL Public Affairs NORFOLK
Sailors and civilians assigned to Commander, Naval Air Force Atlantic (CNAL) gathered at the command headquarters in Norfolk, Oct. 13, to celebrate the Navy’s 241st birthday. On Oct. 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established the Continental Navy as a means of defense in what would ultimately become our nation’s battle for independence. Every year the Navy celebrates their traditions and heritage, and every year they remind each other where they come from. This year, CNAL Commander Rear Adm. Bruce Lindsey presided over the ceremony and Force Master Chief William “Bill” Smalts served as the guest speaker. Smalts
PO3 Daniel Gaither Commanding Officer Capt. Will Pennington celebrates with Capt. Stephen Paulette and Seaman Yarileidis Paredes as they cut the Navy birthday ceremonial cake with a cutlass aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77). The cutting of the cake by the oldest and youngest crew members symbolizes the passing of knowledge from the previous generation of Sailors to the next.
TSCHR commemorates Navy’s birthday From TSCHR Public Affairs VIRGINIA BEACH
More than 100 Sailors and staff, including Training Support Center Hampton Roads (TSCHR) Commanding Officer Capt. Edward Gettins recognized the 241st birthday of the U.S. Navy in a cake-cutting ceremony Oct. 13, held at the TSCHR Norfolk, Virginia site. Gettins kicked off the ceremony which was coordinated and conducted by TSCHR Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Leveque and TSCHR Dam Neck Officer in Charge Lt. Rebecca Samuels. The presentation included a video featuring birthday messages from the Chief of Naval Operations and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Throughout the observance, both Leveque and Samuels highlighted the U.S. Navy’s tremendous maritime strength, pride, heritage and theme: Tough, Bold, & Ready. “The U.S. Navy has been the cornerstone of America’s security and prosperity for almost two and half centuries, and today we celebrate our Sailors
unique ability to learn, adapt and ultimately overcome and continue to make the U.S. Navy the most formidable sea power & benchmark that others measure themselves against,” Leveque said. “Ready ... we must always be ready especially on shore duty we often loose sight of the bigger picture when it comes to the training pipeline, the inspections, sometimes we forget what it’s all for. We are mission first, Sailors, then ourselves and we must always be ready to take on any threat at any time,” Samuels said. “Three core values have defined our Navy since its inception, Leveque said. They will continue to supersede all technological advances in accordance as we move forward into an uncertain future. Our sailors – our center of gravity have always been and will certainly continue to be Tough, Bold and Ready.” Traditionally, the Navy birthday cake is cut by the oldest and the youngest staff members, so Gettins asked TSCHR Student Management Director Oscar Jose and Seaman Jennifer Valdez to assist him in the cake cutting. The celebration ended with an opportunity for staff members to ask any questions they had for Gettins. TSCHR provides student management, quota control, and professional development for nearly 80,000 Sailors, Marines, Soldiers and Airmen from the U.S. Armed Forces, and 23 allied nations each year.
NEIC celebrates Navy’s 241st birthday From Navy Expeditionary Intelligence Command Public Affairs VIRGINIA BEACH
Sailors from Navy Expeditionary Intelligence Command (NEIC) took a pause from the daily battle rhythm, Oct. 13, to take the time to recognize the Navy’s 241st birthday. Capitalizing on the 2016 theme of “America’s Sailor: Tough, Bold, and Ready,” the NEIC team invited the command’s commissioning commanding officer, retired Capt. Michael Murray, who spoke about the theme as it applies to NEIC’s command history and his service. Joining Murray were Master Chief Jim Brooks and Senior Chief Brian Kaneta, both retired, who shared their experiences. Members of the local American Legion Post 35 also participated in the ceremony reflecting on the past and future of our Navy. “Our Sailors’ ability to learn, adapt, innovate on the fly, and ultimately overcome will continue the make the U.S. Navy the most formidable sea power and benchmark that others measure against,”

focused on embracing the history of the Navy and invoked images of boatswain’s mate’s heaving lines as they prepared for war, Sailor’s rigging sails, and the ultimate sacrifice that was paid during all the U.S. wars. “It is very important that we take the time to pause and appreciate the sacrifice and dedication that those before us have contributed,” Smalts said. Smalts was not the only one to focus on history for this year’s birthday. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson spoke to much of the same history and appreciation of the past. “Study history, study the eras of our past, look over our 241 years of honor, courage and commitment,” Richardson said in a video on Navy Live. “Get inspiration from their examples.

Chief Samuel Gonzalez said. In her remarks, NEIC Commanding Officer Cmdr. Danielle Lukich directed her attention to intelligence exploitation teams deploying in October, instructing Sailors to listen to “the thoughts that you need [to have], as you prepare yourselves to be tough, bold, and ready [on deployment].” A sense of pride of service was evident throughout the room and in the words of Brooks, “Pride comes with what you do when you fight with and for your shipmates.” Murray aptly summarized the event. “You are not in the
Navy, you are the Navy. You serve the American people who will never know your face, who will never know your service.” Established in 2007, NEIC is the Navy’s only dedicated fleet unit of deployable intelligence professionals which fuses the disciplines of human intelligence, signals intelligence, and intelligence analysis. Comprised of nine intelligence exploitation teams deployed worldwide, the Sailors of NEIC support named intelligence operations in response to intelligence priorities throughout the fleet. NEIC has been awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation (2 awards) and the Department of Defense HUMINT collector (Overt) Team Award in 2011 and 2014.

Naval Air Station Oceana Sailors visited Ocean Lakes Elementary School as a part of community outreach events during Hampton Roads Fleet Week and in celebration of the Navy’s . The Sailors spent the day visiting classes, reading to students and answering any questions they might have. The central theme of this year’s 241st birthday and heritage week was “America’s Sailor. For 241 years: Tough, Bold, and Ready.” The theme was chosen to encourage and promote enhanced public engagement, both at home and where our forces are stationed abroad. “As a part of the Oceana and Hampton Roads community, we are very fortunate to get a lot of assistance from military personnel and organizations,” Assistant principal
COMREL Naval Air Station Oceana Sailors visited Ocean Lakes Elementary School during Hampton Roads Fleet Week to read to the students and talk with them about the Navy. Events like Fleet Week are designed to strengthen community bonds and create an environment of respect and understanding. of Ocean Lakes Elementary School Katherine Simpson said. ”Outreach programs and events like these help educate the student body, and that education helps students understand and bond with each other.” Simpson said that seeing military personnel in the school and being able to engage them in conversation helps them to truly understand the military and the people that choose to serve.

“To see them up close and to talk with them about their day or the places they have seen during their career is very special to these students, they get to understand that the Navy is more than just big ships and loud aircraft,” Simpson said. “It shows students from all backgrounds strong examples of both male and female achievement and what is possible when you put your mind to something and work hard at it.” The day began with Chief Autumn Barnes and Petty Officer 2nd Class Joshua Lytle, assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron 81, greeting the students at the door as they arrived at school. They then performed morning colors, raising the flag during the national anthem and saluting the ensign as it flew. “I feel very humbled being able to talk with these amazing students today,” Barnes said. “It is a very special opportunity for us to be able to interact with these kids on the 241st birthday of the United States Navy and speak to everyone about the opportunities the Navy has afforded us and the kind of careers that are possible in today’s Navy.” Both Barnes and Lytle spend the remainder of the day visiting from class to class, reading to the students and answering any questions they might have. “I wanted students to see me for how I am, just a Kid from Carolina, and now in my 6th year of serving the Navy and

NECC Sailors visit area elementary schools on Navy’s 241st birthday By Lt. Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg Navy Expeditionary Combat Command Public Affairs VIRGNIA BEACH
Sailors assigned to Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) visited a variety of schools in the Hampton Roads region to help celebrate the U.S. Navy’s 241st birthday, Oct. 13. NECC assigned Sailors visited Hermitage Elementary and Shelton Park Elementary Schools, which are both located in Virginia Beach, while explosive ordnance technicians from Explosive Ordnance Group Two visited other area schools to include Rosemount Forest Elementary School and Green Run Elementary School. Capt. Bruce Boyle, who spoke at the NECC Navy birthday celebration at the Type Command’s headquarters helped coordinate community relations opportunities in the community. “Every year on the U.S. Navy’s birthday our Sailors should take the time to reflect on the many personal blessings that comes from wearing the cloth of our nation,” Boyle said. “We really need to turn inward to look at the blessings you receive by serving in our Navy.” School Liaison Officer Karen Just assigned to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story appreciated the time Sailors spent with the area elementary school children especially on the Navy’s 241st birthday. “It takes a village to raise a child,” Just said. “This is especially true for creating and maintaining a positive and nurturing school environment for an entire student body.” Petty Officer 1st Class Sharon McQueen, assigned to NECC, volunteered at Shelton Park Elementary School and appreciated the experience especially on the Navy’s birthday. “Volunteering with the children today was an incredible experience,” McQueen said, who added that they seemed to have a lot of fun, “but I believe I had more fun than they did.” “It was a great opportunity to share a little about what we do in the Navy,” Petty Officer 2nd Class Travis DiPerna said. Just added that while the volunteer efforts of the Sailors serve to enhance children’s education they also serve to benefit the volunteer as well. “Doing for others feels right, and it’s contagious,” Just said. “For our Sailors to be engaged in local schools is tremendous and helps to build on an ongoing social, academic and emotional framework of success.”

NAVSUP FLC Norfolk supports operations surrounding Hurricane Matthew NORFOLK
Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center (NAVSUP FLC) Norfolk provided critical logistical support to prepare ships for deployment in support of humanitarian relief efforts for damage caused by Hurricane Matthew Oct. 5. The first ship to arrive on station, amphibious transport dock USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19), arrived off the coast of Haiti Oct. 10. In addition, NAVSUP FLC Norfolk provided logistical support to ships that sortied from the area, away from the storm. According to NAVSUP FLC Norfolk Commanding Officer Capt. Jack Moreau, the command’s efforts included fueling, loading provisions, ensuring proper mail service and delivery of additional pack-up kits for aviation assets responding to Matthew. “I’m very proud of the efforts of our team,” Moreau said. “Supporting the fleet, particularly in operations like these, is why we are here.” According to Fuel Department Director Kevin Henderson, the fuel operation at NAVSUP FLC Norfolk continued its routine mission and picked up additional short notice requirements for Military Sealift Command fast combat support ship USNS Supply (T-AOE 6), hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20), and littoral combat ship USS Montgomery (LCS 8). Those three additional ships took on more than 6 million gallons of fuel. “Prior planning enabled us to prepare and to continue our fueling mission simultaneously,” Henderson said. “Everything we did to get ready takes time and manpower. Without prior planning, you don’t have enough of either.” Henderson added his department positioned submersible pumps in critical areas, positioned fuel barges in areas

U.S. ambassador to Haiti the Honorable Peter F. Mulrean visited the amphibious dock ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19) as the ship began its humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts in response to Hurricane Matthew. Mulrean toured the ship with Commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 2 Rear Adm. Roy I. Kitchener and Mesa Verde’s Commanding Officer Capt. Randall Peck. Following a tour of various spaces throughout the ship, Mulrean held an all hands call and expressed gratitude towards the service members for their efforts in response to the deadly storm. “I would like to thank each and every one of you for being here. You are bringing a
unique capability to Haiti at an important time of need,” Mulrean said. “I’ve flown over the affected regions from the hurricane and I was on the ground in the most damaged city yesterday. I can tell you it’s not only disastrous, it is heartbreaking.” Natural disasters have afflicted Haiti multiple times in recent history and the U.S. has been a consistent supporter of the disaster relief efforts. “Our countries come together in unity. We have a lot of Haitian-Americans that live in the United States and we’re neighbors.” Mulrean said. “We’re with each other geographically and as a country. Haiti is an important country to us and we will help them during their times of need.” Mulrean also explained the importance of working with the various agencies to provide relief supplies and

You are what makes the United States respected around the world, particularly in operations like this.” Mulrean said. “We all come together and we do what we do best. I can’t say enough for you, thank you all.” The U.S. military is working with the U.S. Agency for International Development, the government of Haiti, other international partners and non-governmental organizations to provide relief to the people of Haiti at the request of the Haitian government. The role of Mesa Verde during this disaster relief mission is to rapidly respond with critically needed capabilities to deliver assistance and aid to areas the government of Haiti deems most necessary.

USS IWO JIMA, 24TH MEU DEPLOY TO HAITI FOR HURRICANE MATTHEW HADR MISSIONS From Expeditionary Strike Group 2 Public Affairs NORFOLK
The amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) along with more than 500 Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) will get underway today from Norfolk, Virginia, heading for Haiti to support humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) missions in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. Iwo Jima will ultimately relieve the amphibious transport docking ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19), which is due to arrive in Haiti early tomorrow. LHDs are currently the largest amphibious ships in the world and will bring enhanced capabilities to the relief effort. Resources currently embarked aboard Mesa Verde, including aircraft, landing craft, Marines and the Navy and Marine Corps command elements, will cross-deck to Iwo Jima and remain on station in Haiti to support continued operations. Iwo Jima and the MEU conducted a two-day on-load at
Naval Station Norfolk totaling nearly 225 pallets of supplies, including 800 cases of bottled water, in preparation to help people in the aftermath of one of the largest storms to hit the area in years. The ship also embarked four additional aircraft and two Landing Craft Utility boats adept at accessing fouled beaches. Iwo Jima Commanding Officer Capt. James Midkiff, lauded the Sailors’ and Marines’ ability to conduct the on-load in a swift fashion and their ability to be ready to help those in need, even while their own families were experiencing the powerful storm at the ship’s homeport in Mayport, Florida. “Events like this exemplify the talent and strengths of our military services and how flexible and responsive we can be in a time of crisis” Midkiff said. “Everything we have done since departing our homeport is designed to get ready and provide support to those in need, and I think we have done exactly that. We are prepared and honored to have the opportunity to help out our friends and neighbors in the western hemisphere.” The airlift and transport capabilities of amphibious ships
make them uniquely suited to support the delivery and distribution of much-needed relief supplies, as well as transport humanitarian assistance personnel in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster. “The same capabilities that make us a dominant military force also allow us the ability to provide critically-needed assistance and humanitarian aid,” Commanding Officer of Combat Logistics Battalion 24, Lt. Col. Christopher D. Hafer said, speaking on behalf of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. “We are able to work alongside the various U.S. government agencies experienced in providing disaster relief to ensure relief supplies, equipment and manpower get to where they are most needed.” During relief operations, embarked landing craft are used to transport equipment and aid to populated areas inaccessible by land. Matthew first made landfall in southern Haiti, sustaining winds of up to 145 mph before moving on to cause damage in the Bahamas and the U.S.

Commander of Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) 2 Rear Adm. Roy I. Kitchener flew over Haiti to assess the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew. The amphibious transport docking ship USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19) arrived Sunday after departing Norfolk, Virginia to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Kitchener met with U.S. Ambassador to Haiti Peter F. Mulrean, who is helping to coordinate relief efforts across many governmental and non-governmental organizations and agencies. Mulrean visited Mesa Verde to learn about the ship’s capabilities and to meet the ship’s Sailors and the Marines of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) which are embarked. “ESG-2, Mesa Verde and the 24th MEU are part of a larger U.S. response to the government of Haiti’s request for humanitarian assistance,” Kitchener said. “The U.S. effort is coordinated by the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). We are here to do our part in the larger relief effort to help the people of Haiti after this devastating hurricane.” Kitchener also met with Commander of Joint Task Force Matthew Rear Adm. Cedric Pringle, members of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti and Brazilian Forces to discuss their combined efforts. “We are committed to working closely with our international partners to provide Haitians with the support they need,” Kitchener added. The U.S. military has a history of supporting USAID-led relief missions and working with international relief organizations and host countries to aid those afflicted by disasters. Another ESG 2 ship, the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) deployed Saturday to assist and is expected to arrive in Haiti later this week.

Cole conducts remembrance ceremony, honors fallen From USS Cole Public Affairs ATLANTIC OCEAN
The guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67) held a commemoration ceremony on board today for fallen and injured Sailors of the October 12, 2000 terrorist attack. During the ceremony, a wreath was laid, a 21gun salute was fired and taps played to honor the sacrifice of the 17 Sailors who were killed and 37 wounded when suicide bombers detonated an explosive-laden boat directly against the port side of the ship while refueling in Aden, Yemen, 16 years ago. The blast tore a 40-by-60 foot hole in the side of the ship. Sailors fought for 96 hours to free trapped shipmates, contain flooding and restore engineering systems vital to the ship’s survival. “We remember that USS Cole is not a museum, a memorial or a piece of history to visit once a year, but a living testament to our shipmates and the resolve of our great Navy and our great nation,” Cole Commanding Officer Cmdr. David Wroe said. “We have the watch for this great ship and we will carry forward the memories of our fallen shipmates as we prepare to deploy back into harm’s way.” The ship also hosted a shore-based remembrance at the Cole Memorial on board Naval Station Norfolk, to offer Cole families, friends and former shipmates the opportunity for fellowship there. More than 75 attended this event, which focused on quiet reflection and the roll call of heroes. A number of Gold Star families were also on hand, to offer support and pay tribute to the Cole families, and to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter, husband or wife. “To be able to come back, hear the names and see the faces of Sailors who served then and are serving now, it really brings home the fact that the Navy is a family,” Cmdr. Mikal Phillips said, who is assigned to Naval Surface Force Atlantic and was a junior officer on board Cole at the time of the attack. “Our business as Sailors is heritage and to execute the nation’s calling when asked,” he continued. “This memorial is the perfect summation of just that. It’s about Sailors who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to maintain freedom, and it’s important to keep that idea alive through our current and future Sailors.” Homeported in Norfolk, the Cole crew is preparing for a scheduled deployment later this year.

| Navy relies on Nuclear Power Program for its submarines, aircraft carriers NUCLEAR
Continued from A1
Vicki Cronis-Nohe | The Virginian-Pilot Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, right, urged sailors and marines out of formation and closer to the stage, upon his arrival to a pier at Norfolk Naval Station on Oct. 14, 2016. Mabus addressed ratings changes, and took questions from service members.
VISIT | Mabus on ratings
change: “You’re going to get more choices.” Continued from A1 late jobs to the civilian workforce, and are expected to take several years to develop. The announcements sent shock waves across the fleet and were met with backlash. An online petition sprang up immediately asking the White House to reverse the rating-titles decision. More than 72,000 had signed as of Friday, with an Oct. 30 deadline to gather 100,000 total signatures to
garner a White House response. Mabus acknowledged the backlash but told sailors Friday “you’re going to get more choices.” Sailors still took the opportunity to question Mabus about the ratings changes and what those could mean for advancement. Petty Officer 1st Class Rod Thompson asked about plans to make sure Sailors are able to keep their current jobs and not be pushed out because there’s no room at the top to grow.
Vicki Cronis-Nohe | The Virginian-Pilot Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, center, took time for selfies with military service members at Norfolk Naval Station on Oct. 14, 2016, after he addressed them on a variety of issues, including ratings changes.
“One of the ways we’re going to keep from doing that is by making ratings so that you can move between them, so that you can get qualified in more than one narrow rating,” Mabus said, adding that future promotions will be based more upon merit. Shawn Pugsley, a chief at the Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center, said he was pleased by Mabus’ remarks about the ratings changes, adding they will “keep some really good Sailors around for longer.” Mabus also acknowledged the Navy’s attempts in recent years to Vicki Cronis-Nohe | The Virginian-Pilot shorten deployments to a goal of Petty Officer 2nd Class Christine Figueroa questions Secretary of the Navy seven months as part of a larger Ray Mabus about expanding aid for family members with exceptional needs plan that seeks to better standardduring his visit to Norfolk Naval Station Oct. 14.
ize a ship’s progression through maintenance and training cycles. The goal is to make the process more predictable, Mabus said, though he warned “it’s not going to be perfect.” The USS Harry S. Truman was to have been the first aircraft carrier to fit into that plan, but that slipped after its crew was ordered to extend its deployment by 30 days in the Mediterranean Sea, where it continued to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State group until it could be replaced by the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. “It’s not always going to stick in terms of deployments because the world’s circumstances change, but we are getting there,” Mabus said.
technology and the ability to make U.S. military presence known across the globe, these submarines and aircraft carriers are mightily impressive. Without nuclear power, the means by which they are able to operate on a consistent basis, this show of dominance would be impossible to sustain. The Navy relies on Sailors like Walters to keep its submarines and aircraft carriers in the fight. His job as an electrician, maintaining the control subsystems in nuclear reactors, gave him the opportunity to be part of something significant. Through the Navy Nuclear Power Program, Walters gained a high level of job satisfaction, a signing bonus that helped ensure his financial stability, and valuable job training that could lead to a six-figure salaried civilian job, once he separates from the Navy. The Navy Nuclear Power Program is just as important now as it was when Walters joined the Navy in 2007. To maintain the high standards of the program, the Navy is still in need of intelligent and motivated recruits to fill its ranks. Today, as a recruiter, Petty Officer 1st Class James Walters is putting his experience and knowledge of nuclear power to good use by helping the Navy enlist the most qualified recruits into the Nuclear Power Program. His ultimate goal is to make sure high-achieving young men and women joining the Navy have the same opportunities he had. “I know that signing up to work in nuclear power is one solid decision that they (Navy recruits) can make to ensure success for the next six years of their life, and even beyond the military,” Walters said. “Fighting to get the best people into the Navy’s Nuclear Power Program is what gives me a passion for recruiting and it keeps the Navy’s Nuclear Power Program strong.” For more news from Navy Recruiting District Raleigh, visit www.navy.mil/local/ nrdraleigh/.
LEGACY | Began in WWII Continued from A1 “Everybody has a hero,” David said. “Mine was my father. He grew up in poverty; they didn’t have much, but they had a moral code. They didn’t rob and steal, and he was taught to protect the weak. This is the moral code my dad lived by as a man and a Sailor, and they’re the principles that I was raised on.” David admired his father so much he decided to follow in his footsteps. “My Dad served; it was an honorable profession, so I wanted to serve,” he said. December 1964, during the Vietnam War, David enlisted in the Navy. He proudly served as a machinist’s mate, just as his father had done 16 years before. The Vietnam War was not like any war America had ever fought and it brought with it new adversity. Many Americans opposed the war, people questioned whether the draft and the war itself was ethical. Pictures and video footage depicting the horrors of war could be seen on every news outlet in the country. Still, David Campbell boldly served his country during the war and continued to serve after it ended for a total of 29 years, achieving the rank of commander.
“Family and duty to your country is what it’s about,” David said. Though he followed in his father’s footsteps, he didn’t necessarily push his own son, Jonathan Campbell, to do the same. “I wanted him to go to college and continue his education after high school,” David said. “I didn’t want him doing everything the hard way like me. If he did join (the military), I told him not to do it just because it’s something to do; do it because you want to serve.” Not only did his son want to serve, but he wanted to serve in the Navy as a machinist’s mate. So just as his father had done 44 years before and as his grandfather had done 22 years before that, in December of 2008, Jonathan enlisted in the Navy as a machinist’s mate. “I joined the Navy because it’s something that I felt I needed to do,” Jonathan said. “I watched the service members come back home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and I decided that I should serve and give back to my country. It’s a family tradition.” Jonathan said he doesn’t plan on separating from the Navy until he reaches maximum retirement age. Having watched his father serve and having heard stories about his
grandfather’s service in the Navy, he learned the meaning of commitment. His loyalty and readiness to serve is part of the Navy legacy and his family legacy. In essence, Navy heritage is Campbell family heritage. “Traits that the Navy probably put in my father, like good work ethic, I see those in myself now,” Jonathan said. “My dad instilled those traits in me. If my kids want to serve, I will fully support them. Service to others is more important than anything else, and that’s what I want to make sure my kids understand. This is a family tradition for us.” Through World War II, the Vietnam War, and the modern wars in the Middle East, each Campbell has boldly carried with him an unwavering commitment to service. Tough, bold, and ready – these are traits that helped build generations of Campbell boys into the men their fathers raised them to be, and they are the characteristics which have defined America’s Sailors for 241 years. As we celebrate the Navy’s 241st birthday, the Campbell family reminds us that the strength of Navy families is part of the foundation on which the toughness, boldness, and readiness of America’s Sailors are built.

Continued from A1 also conducted a replenishment-at-sea with fast combat support ship USNS Supply (T-AOE 6) Oct. 12, taking on more than 450,000 gallons of F-76 fuel and 30,000 gallons of JP-5 aviation fuel. The additional fuel provides Iwo Jima with the ability to conduct a greater amount of HADR operations while in Haiti. “These ships are great platforms to help USAID and the other agencies coordinating relief efforts,” Commander of Expeditionary Strike Group Two Rear Adm. Roy Kitchener said. “The same capabilities that make amphibious ships so effective in combat also make them
extraordinarily effective in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts like the one we’re conducting now in Haiti.” The airlift and transport capabilities of amphibious ships make them uniquely suited to support the delivery and distribution of much-needed relief supplies, as well as transport humanitarian assistance personnel in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster. During relief operations, embarked landing craft are used to transport equipment and aid to populated areas inaccessible by land. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is the lead U.S. government agency for foreign disaster assistance and is working with Joint Task Force Matthew to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to the people of Haiti following Hurricane Matthew at the request of the Haitian government.

US, ROK navies conduct exercise From U.S. Naval Forces Korea Public Affairs WATERS EAST AND WEST OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA
The Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group (CSG) began a series of exercises with the Republic of Korea (ROK) navy Oct. 10-15 to strengthen maritime interoperability and tactics, techniques and procedures. The U.S. routinely conducts CSG operations in the waters around the Republic of Korea to exercise maritime maneuvers, strengthen the U.S.ROK alliance, and improve regional security. “This exercise is yet another example of the
strength and resolve of the combined U.S. and the ROK naval force,” Commander of Ronald Reagan CSG Rear Adm. Charles Williams said. “The U.S. and the Republic of Korea share one of the strongest alliances in the world, and we grow stronger as an alliance because of our routine exercises here in South Korea and the close relationship and ties that we forge from operating at sea together.” The exercises will consist of a routine bilateral training, subject matter expert exchanges, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare drills, communication drills, air defense exercises, counter-mine planning and distinguished visitor embarkations.
The U.S. Navy maintains a presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to help preserve peace and security and further partnerships with friends and allies. The U.S. forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enables an exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge. For a list of participating Republic of Korea assets, please contact the Republic of Korea navy Headquarters Public Affairs.

Navy and Energy Commission agree to partner on renewable energy projects From Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment SACRAMENTO, CALIF.
The California Energy Commission and the Department of the Navy (DON) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Oct. 12 that will help the state and the Navy and Marine Corps continue to operate on the cutting edge of technology by pursuing innovative renewable energy initiatives. Energy Commission Chair Robert B. Weisenmiller and Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment Dennis V. McGinn signed the agreement formalizing a partnership that supports Navy and Marine Corps installation efforts to develop alternative energy resources and increase energy security and reliability. The MOU ensures continued collaboration and
information sharing on energy projects and initiatives. “California and the Navy are taking action to boost energy efficiency and curb our dependence on fossil fuels,” California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr said. “This agreement will help expand renewable energy at military bases and secure water supplies in the face of drought.” The MOU helps implement some of the key recommendations made by the Governor’s Military Council last year. The recommendations aim to enhance the state’s defense and national security mission and its benefits to California’s economy and communities. Recent joint projects between the DON and the Energy Commission include a demonstration of a waterless cleaning process for Kevlar vests, flame resistant garments and other ballistic
gear at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme and the installation of a solar microgrid system with battery storage to ensure mission readiness should the commercial power grid fail at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The DON is transforming its energy use by developing energy efficiency measures and alternative energy resources to increase mission capability and flexibility. In 2009, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus set aggressive renewable energy goals to spur the development of alternative power and energy efficient technology and operational procedures. Recognizing the benefits of alternative energy, Secretary Mabus stood up the Renewable Energy Program Office (REPO) in order to accelerate his goals and bring

TRUE ROMANCE IS A GAS By Lisa Smith Molinari Flagship Contributing Writer
Ten years ago, when my family was stationed in Virginia, a boring weeknight in the suburbs inspired me to write my first column. At that time, I wasn’t looking for a publishing opportunity. I simply needed a creative outlet to sort through the realities of marriage, parenting and military life. Now, as my husband, Francis, and I prepare to celebrate our 24th anniversary, I’ll tell the story that inspired me to write ... One busy night after the kids had gone to bed, I settled into my spot on the sofa for some mind-numbing television. “Isn’t this a repeat?” I asked Francis, seated in his recliner. When no answer was forthcoming, I glanced over to witness an all-too-familiar scene: Deeply embedded in the recliner’s cushions, lay my husband of fourteen years, sound asleep. Normally, I would turn out the lights and tip-toe to bed — my revenge for being “abandoned” for the umpteenth time. Francis would wake up alone in the dark and trudge upstairs to find me teehee-ing under the covers. But on this particular night, I gawked at Francis as if I were seeing him for the first time. Is this the man I married? Panic gripped my soul. We’re tired, boring, predictable — We’re doomed. I remembered one afternoon in 1992, when Francis and I were at an Italian café in Pittsburgh, sipping wine and falling in love. “I really want to live abroad,” he said. “Me
too,” I said. “I love the ocean,” I said. “Me too,” he said. “I don’t care about money, only happiness,” he said. “Me too!” I said. It was a match made in heaven. But, if we had understood the realities of marriage, our conversation would have been different: “I’ll develop stretch marks,” I should’ve said. “That’s okay, we’ll dim the lights,” he might’ve said. “I’ll end up bald, but hair will sprout out of my ears and nose,” he should’ve said. ”I’m good with tweezers,” I might’ve said. “I have no mechanical ability and won’t be embarrassed if you handle all the home repairs,” he should’ve said. “I won’t mind for the first few years, but then I’ll get fed up,” I really wish I’d said. But back in 1992, we weren’t thinking about annoying habits and clogged drains. We were too busy planning our perfect life to be bothered with reality. Our unrealistic expectations persisted after we were engaged. “Pardon me!” Francis yelped after accidentally belching. Although he insisted he would never expel any kind of gas in front of me, it didn’t take long for his steely resolve to erode. Today, expelling gas happens as soon as the urge beckons. Mid-sentence, under the covers, in the recliner. “Why do you have to burp while I’m talking to you?” I’ve said. “Did I burp?” he’s said, sincerely oblivious. Before marriage, I preened and pampered Francis like a primate, manicuring nails and plucking stray hairs to maintain his rugged good looks. I had no idea that, one day, those stray hairs would multiply so profusely that
our grooming sessions now take place in the garage and involve the leaf-blower. The pedicures have become completely intolerable, because Francis’ left piggy toe now resembles a tiny hoof. One of the kids recently asked if it was made out of wood. I had to draw the line somewhere. So what am I saying? Are we doomed because we haven’t met our premarital expectations? As I watched Francis dozing in his recliner, I realized something important: We have not met our original expectations, we’ve exceeded them. Back when we were dreaming of a life of romance uninhibited by responsibility, stress and aging, we couldn’t fully comprehend the complexity and depth of marital relationships. We didn’t understand that marriage is more than candlelight dinners and adventurous travel. Long-term romance is actually built on a foundation of commitment, comfort, and companionship. Realizing this, my aversion to the sight of my sleeping husband turned to adoration. And as I turned out the lights and tip-toed upstairs to wait for Francis to wake up alone in the dark, I was happy that marriage is everything I ever dreamed of, and more.

PO3 Caleb Cooper Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron M. Crossley is congratulated during a ceremony at his home. Crossley was designated an honorary chief by Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Steven Giordano with the help of the Chiefs Mess from Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit.
Sailor battling cancer designated honorary chief From Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit Public Affairs OAK HARBOR, WASH.
Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Crossley at Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit (CNATTU) at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island (NASWI) is a determined, driven Sailor. He is also battling stage IV cancer. Crossley has been battling an aggressive form of kidney cancer since his diagnosis in November 2015. For him, giving up the fight is not an option. He has been eligible for advancement to chief on five occasions. While going through
treatments, Crossley gathered the strength to participate in the most recent advancement exam and became board eligible. On Oct. 9, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Steven Giordano, there via video teleconference, designated Crossley an honorary chief, with the help of the Chiefs Mess of CNATTU at Crossley’s home. “Regardless of his physical condition, Petty Officer Crossley would still show up to work even after he was ordered to stay at home,” Chief Ray Hass said, assigned to CNATTU and Crossley’s leading chief. “He loves being a Sailor, a mentor, and most of all, an instructor.” Even after his diagnosis, Crossley’s com-
mitment to training the fleet was apparent. He continued to perform his duties as a P-3C Orion avionics instructor for the next 10 months. Crossley still continues to help others, even under immense physical pain. As his health weakened, operating a vehicle was no longer feasible. He selflessly donated his personal vehicle to a fellow petty officer 1st class in need. “He is truly committed to the mission and success of others around him,” retired Senior Chief Eric Farrow said, former work center supervisor at Patrol Squadron (VP) 46. “He fostered a competitive training environment that was needed to become a
successful work center within Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10. He advanced quickly and committed himself to help others with technical and professional study sessions.” A native of Decatur, Alabama, Crossley entered the Navy February 2003 and has had tours in Fallon, Nevada; San Diego; and multiple tours of duty at NASWI. He reported to CNATTU February 2015. Crossley’s family is his support system, providing whatever he needs during this difficult time. “I’ve never met anyone as resilient as Aaron,” his wife Gina said. “Despite it all, we remain optimistic.”

Kings Bay learns lessons in wake of Hurricane Matthew By Senior Chief Misty Hubbard Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Public Affairs KINGS BAY, GA.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, the death toll is still uncertain. As of Oct. 11, the storm claimed more than 1,000 lives between the Caribbean islands and the U.S., with still more people unaccounted for. Identified as the deadliest hurricane in more than a decade, Hurricane Matthew intensified from a Category 1 to a Category 5 hurricane in less than 24 hours. Millions of residents from south of Cape Canaveral, Florida, up the East Coast through South Carolina, faced mandatory evacuation orders. For officials tasked with making the hard decisions, Hurricane Matthew offered no simple solutions. According to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Commanding Officer Capt. Brian Lepine, there was a lot of churn in the forecast during the storm’s early stages, because there were a lot of possibilities for the storm’s track. However, the more Matthew headed north, the more it shifted farther to the west, a degree at a time. “Once it got to south Florida, the track firmed up and things changed very rapidly,” Lepine said. “The base was very well prepared, and all the folks stationed here did a fabulous job of shifting focus to battening down the hatches.” The governor of Georgia issued a mandatory evacuation order for Camden County, Oct. 6. Kings Bay leadership, operating in concert with county officials and Navy Region Southeast leaders, declared missionessential personnel only status. The Relocation Team, a group of command representatives activated to establish a satellite command structure at Warner Robins Air Force Base near Macon, Georgia, deployed within two hours of being mobilized with the mission of assisting dislocated employees and family members. “When our local community leaders make a decision to conduct an emergency evacuation, which is not made lightly, everyone understands how amazingly disruptive that is,”
Lepine said. “It creates a lot of anguish, a lot of uncertainty, [and] a lot of anxiety; but the smart thing to do is grab your ready bag, your family, and that which is most precious to you, and get in the car and drive away from harm’s way and get yourself in a safe place.” At the storm’s strongest point in the area, Oct. 7, the base was experiencing 65 knot winds at the waterfront, with gusts exceeding 85 knots. The brick facade along the Navy Exchange’s back wall – an area 75 feet wide, from the roofline almost to ground level – collapsed. Channel markers in the St. Marys channel that go out to the sea buoy, which are anchored to the sea bottom and meant to stay put, were moved anywhere from 100 to nearly 1,000 yards from their position. Throughout the worst of the storm, Kings Bay’s mission-essential personnel remained on station, monitoring the situation. Base security department, the sentries at the gates, personnel at the entry control points, and patrol cars were out ensuring base was safe throughout the storm. Fire department personnel were engaged and ready to respond. After the base established missionessential personnel only, all dining facilities on the base closed, with the exception of Pirates’ Cove, the base galley. “They were serving anyone who walked in the door,” Lepine said. “It was a tremendous effort. You could go in there any time of the day or night, and there was something to eat.” Once the storm passed, those mission-essential personnel from across the entire base, to include all tenant commands, began the process of beginning to assess the damage. And those who evacuated the area began asking when they could come home. “There’s a lot of work that has to happen when the storm is gone,” Lepine said. “The sun comes out and the birds start singing, and folks naturally want to immediately come right back, but that’s exactly the wrong thing to do.” Fallen trees were in the roads and on power lines throughout the region. Traffic lights were out. St.

Marys and Kingsland, cities to the north, and the entire Jacksonville area faced significant flooding, losses of power, and stressed water and sewage systems. “If you hurry and come back, you’re loading down that infrastructure that is not in a position to be able to support people,” Lepine said. “When our community leaders make the call to evacuate, the primary concern is for life and safety. Almost equally important, after you leave, is to wait for the ‘all clear’ to come back so you don’t put yourself in harm’s way and risk the lives of others.” The other immediate concern once the storm passed was accounting for the safety and whereabouts of Kings Bay personnel and families. That task fell to the Relocation Team, which relied on the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS) to help determine which Kings Bay families needed support or assistance. “Accountability is crucial, and NFAAS is crucial,” Director of the Kings Bay Fleet and Family Support Center Debbie Lucas said, who deployed with the Relocation Team. “Not just for assessing the needs of our families, but also for making sure our people are safe.” Some forecasts predicted the Kings Bay area would take a direct hit from Hurricane Matthew, potentially at the Category 4 level. The storm most directly affected southeastern Georgia as a Category 3 hur-

ricane, well enough off the coast to avoid significant damage. “Kings Bay fared extremely well because of natural positioning; Cumberland Island deflected some of the winds, and the tides were very favorable,” Lepine said. “When Hurricane Matthew reached its closest point of approach, we were almost at low tide, which minimized the risk of flooding on base. As the hurricane transitioned to the north, the winds shifted and that helped drive the water out of the marshes.” While leaders at Kings Bay were riding out the storm, the Relocation Team fielded calls from service members, civilian employees, and families who evacuated as far away as Alabama. Lepine credited Kings Bay personnel with showing strong resiliency and preparedness, which he said resulted in minimal calls for emergency assistance. The Emergency Family Assistance Center was mobilized the morning of Oct. 9 at the Fleet and Family Support Center to support any financial or emergency needs. Even with limited staff members still in the area, they were able to start providing services by noon, and operated 24 hours a day. “The FFSC staff was just amazing,” Lucas said. “No matter what we needed, they just wanted to know where they could be and what they could do to help.” According to Lucas, a family went to the EFAC in search of a wheelchair for a family member.
EFAC representatives went to the base clinic, where they found emergency medical technicians from the Kings Bay Fire Department. When a wheelchair could not be found, the EMTs offered to help transport the family member to Navy Gateway Inns and Suites for adequate shelter. The governor of Georgia rescinded the evacuation order at 5 p.m., Oct. 9. Leaders continued to assess damage, and started compiling lessons learned. Lepine said he thinks people often underestimate the power of hurricane-force winds. “We don’t engineer most buildings and facilities to withstand those forces of winds,” he said. “When you factor in the driving rain, when that water is driven by 70 knot winds, it does strange things and goes to places you wouldn’t expect it. People then want to come home right away and turn all the power on, and exposed electrical circuits might be full of water. Now there are electrical fires which spread into building fires, which just gets worse and worse.” As areas along the East Coast and throughout the Caribbean start the recovery process, Lepine said Kings Bay residents have much to be thankful for. “Nature is a very powerful thing,” he said. “Sometimes we can be blessed and get lucky, but there are over 1,000 people who won’t get another chance to get away from a storm.”

The Bonhomme Richard Expeditionary Strike Group (BHR ESG), with embarked 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, departed the Philippines as scheduled following Philippine Amphibious Landing Exercise (PHIBLEX) 33. Launched from ships of the BHR ESG, U.S. Marines trained shoulder-to-shoulder with their Philippine marine corps counterparts, conducting amphibious landings, live-fire exercises and airborne insertions across Luzon, the country’s largest island. For PHIBLEX 33, 1,386 U.S. personnel from five military services learned how to work better together through a series of training events. PHIBLEX is an annual exercise held between the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to increase interoperability in order to jointly respond to natural disasters or regional contingencies. “Our PHIBLEX presented a wonderful opportunity to maximize integration not only among the members of the Philippines and the United States armed forces; it further provided an opportunity for closer integration among Filipinos, Americans, and other partner nationalities of goodwill,” exercise director Philippine marine corps Brig. Gen. Maximo Ballesteros said, during the PHIBLEX closing ceremonies in Manila. The Commanding general of 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade U.S. Marine Corps Brig. Gen. John Jansen, stressed how much U.S. and Philippine’s forces learned from each other. “Our training together as marines makes us all better marines, and more capable as an interoperable force that provides the capability that we might apply to our treaty
obligations in the future, whether it be in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, assistance in internal security, or in other times of crisis as determined by our two great nations,” Jansen said. Not only was the 31st MEU involved in bilateral training, they were also involved in several outreach programs to benefit the local community. Building on a longstanding tradition of humanitarian assistance in the Philippines, Navy medical professionals, part of Combat Logistics Battalion 31, conducted public health training to more than 1,000 Filipino students and teachers, while practicing mass casualty response with their counterparts in the Philippine navy. Sailors of the BHR ESG and Philippine navy also exchanged expertise on beach master operations, anti-submarine warfare, beach survey operations, command and control, shipboard operations, and strengthening the two navies’ ability to operate together. “This was my first PHIBLEX, and I was able to immediately see the value to both our militaries as our two forces worked side-by-side in multiple mission areas,” Commander of ESG 7 Rear Adm. Marc H. Dalton said. “The opportunity to train here together was of immediate and long-term benefit to the joint force teams of the Philippines and the U.S.” ESG units include flagship amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6), amphibious transport dock USS Green Bay (LPD 20), amphibious dock landing ship USS Germantown (LSD 42), Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) 11, Naval Beach Unit (NBU) 7, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 25, and the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. The 31st MEU consists of Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, Combat Logistics Battalion (CLB) 31, and Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 262 Reinforced.

HARDSHIP DUTY PAY -TEMPO REAUTHORIZED FOR SAILORS From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs WASHINGTON
The Navy announced a reauthorization of Hardship Duty Pay – Tempo (HDP-T) to help compensate Sailors for extended deployments and longer periods away from their homeport of more than 220 consecutive days. The Department of the Navy’s HDP-T reauthorization proposal was approved by the DOD for one year through Sept. 30, 2017. The pay was first authorized in Sept. 2014, for a two-year period. “The Navy is in high demand and is pres-
ent where and when it matters,” Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke said. “Hardship Duty Pay – Tempo is designed to compensate Sailors for the important roles they continue to play in keeping our nation safe during extended deployments around the globe.” Sailors will receive HDP-T on a prorated basis of $16.50 per day, not to exceed a monthly rate of $495, when they are operationally deployed beyond 220 consecutive days. There will be no differentiation in rates of HDP-T by paygrade or Active and Reserve Component status.

Barnacle busting: ONR-sponsored research targets ship biofouling By Warren Duffie Jr. Office of Naval Research Public Affairs ARLINGTON, VA.
Individually, tiny barnacles pose little threat to hulking U.S. Navy ships. But when clustered in thick clumps on a vessel’s hull – a natural occurrence called biofouling happens – these sticky crustaceans can slow the ship and increase its fuel consumption by 40 percent. To deal with this small yet expensive pest, the ONR is sponsoring work by an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Dr. Xuanhe Zhao. Zhao and his team have created an adhesive material that can help barnacle-fighting coatings stick to metal hulls better and longer; retain moisture and not dry out; and avoid the use of toxic chemicals and other pollutants. “Biofouling is a major concern for the Navy, leading to hundreds of millions of dollars a year in fuel and maintenance costs,” program manager in ONR’s Sea Warfare and Weapons Program Dr. Steve McElvany said, who oversees Zhao’s research. “It’s especially bad when the ship is docked in port. Barnacles like those environments and tend to accumulate rapidly, in large quantities.” Barnacles are adversaries as old as sailing itself. For centuries, mariners fought the crustaceans with everything from tar to wax. Currently, the Navy uses copper-based paints and coatings to kill barnacles or prevent them from latching onto hulls. While effective, these toxic materials leach into the water, negatively impacting aquatic life. The Navy is seeking environmentally-friendly coatings that can keep hulls clean and reduce fuel costs. One solution vital to Zhao’s efforts could be hydrogels, which can absorb water and hold it in the form of a gel. These extremely soft, slippery substances can be spread on a ship’s underside like sealant to prevent barnacles from sticking to the metal. Barnacles prefer hard, solid spots to attach themselves and don’t like surfaces such as hydrogels. Zhao’s research addresses the challenge of keeping hydrogel coatings soft, wet and securely fastened to metal
SN Christopher Frost Seaman Audriana Wheeler scrapes barnacles from the bottom of a rigid-hull inflatable boat aboard the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). John C. Stennis is undergoing a docking planned incremental availability maintenance period at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.
hulls. Using a chemical bonding agent called benzophenone, his team devised a way to fuse hydrogels with elastomers – elastic polymers like silicone and natural rubber that are stretchy, durable and impervious to water. The result is a sticky, water-trapping barrier which keeps hydrogels robust enough to potentially withstand the harsh hull conditions of a ship at sea. “Our approach was inspired by human skin,” Zhao said. “The skin has an outer epidermis that protects nerves, capillaries, muscles and organs, and keeps them from drying out – maintaining their compliance. However, we can actually stretch the hydrogel-elastomer hybrid to seven times its original length and the bond still holds. It’s that strong and flexible.” The hybrid also has potential as a circuit for transporting ions, which are electrically-charged molecules. These natural circuits could be used to detect the presence of barnacles on a hull, Zhao said. Once the crustaceans are identified, a specially designed hydrogel could pump barnacle-repelling enzymes via grooves etched into the elastomer.
In addition to biofouling defense, Zhao believes the hybrid material might also be used as a smart bandage outfitted with electronics and drug reservoirs – allowing it to monitor wounds and vital signs like body temperature, detect bacteria and administer antibiotics, and alert a doctor when more medicine is required. “Our main focus is helping the Navy deal with the issue of biofouling,” Zhao said, “but it’s also exciting to think of the other possibilities for this material. This is still very basic research, but we envision numerous potential applications and uses for hydrogels and elastomers.” Zhao is a 2014 winner of ONR’s Young Investigator Program, a prestigious grant awarded to scientists and engineers with exceptional promise for producing creative, state-of-the-art research which appears likely to advance naval capabilities.

ENERGY | State, military aim to pursue renewable energy initiatives Continued from B1 one gigawatt of renewable energy into procurement by the end of 2015-which REPO completed in just 18 months. The California Energy Commission is the state’s primary energy policy and planning agency and has been instrumental in helping the state meet its renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals by investing in energy innovations, advancing renewable energy development,
encouraging energy efficiency and transforming transportation away from fossil fuels. The Energy Commission also works with renewable energy developers to ensure their proposed projects in the state do not interfere with space owned, leased or used by the military for training or testing. “One of the three pillars critical to the Navy and Marine Corp’s energy transformation is partnerships, like the strong and enduring one
we have with the State of California,” McGinn said. “Working together, we are using sustainable energy to increase the resiliency, energy and water security of our installations throughout California, while aiding the state’s leadership in achieving its energy and environmental goals, for the benefit of all Californians.” Following the MOU signing, McGinn announced that the Navy and Marine Corps will lease 205 new electric
vehicles for use at California installations, the largest integration of electric vehicles in the federal government. Finally, McGinn revealed that REPO has signed agreements to develop solar energy and solar energy with battery storage projects at three Navy installations in California. The REPO agreements include the development of the largest solar PV facility on Department of Defense land at Naval Air Station Lemoore; solar power and large-
scale battery storage system at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach; and solar power combined with cutting-edge battery technology to supply energy to smaller critical loads indefinitely at Naval Base Ventura County. The announcement of these projects helps to further solidify the collaborative efforts between the Department of the Navy and the state of California. Stanford University’s Hoover Institution hosted the event on the university’s
campus. Earlier in the day, the Department of the Navy, Energy Commission and Hoover Institution leadership held a senior executive meeting to discuss energy challenges facing the nation and potential future partnership efforts. In the afternoon, former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz joined Chair Weisenmiller and McGinn for a panel discussion on energy security, energy storage, the water and energy nexus and decision making.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson (center) celebrated the Navy’s 241st birthday Oct. 13 at Naval Support Activity Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania with a cake cutting.
VISIT | Richardson
witnessed new collaborative government, industry space Continued from B1 NAVSUP Commander Rear Adm. Jonathan Yuen welcomed and introduced Richardson. During his visit, Richardson discussed current naval affairs, policies, and the importance of logistics to the Navy. “Much has changed in the years since our Navy was established,” Richardson said, “but much has stayed the same.” Richardson talked about U.S. military strikes against radar sites in Yemen, involved in recent missile launches threatening guidedmissile destroyer USS Mason (DDG 87) and other vessels operating in international waters in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandeb strait. “We are still a maritime nation and it’s important we maintain open sea lanes of communication,” Richardson said. He later added, “I sense the next decades will impose more responsibility on our maritime forces, and maritime power will be extremely important going forward.” Richardson recognized the more than 600 civilian and military personnel in attendance and told them how much he appreciates their work. “I have a great amount of respect for you,” he said. “This is our logistics center of excellence. I know the people here today have tremen-
dous talent and that you have a lot of choices for where you can take your talent, but you choose to raise your right hand to support and defend the Constitution and take that oath to be something bigger than yourself ... the fact that you do that and make that choice gives me respect for you and the service you provide here in Mechanicsburg and around the world. As the chief of naval operations, I want to assure you that every decision I make starts with you in mind and ends with you in mind.” Richardson talked about his “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority” and how the Navy will adapt to changes in the security environment and continue to fulfill its mission. He addressed the strategy’s four core attributes that serve as guiding criteria for command decisions in decentralized operations – integrity, accountability, initiative, and toughness. He also emphasized the importance of creating an environment of trust among each other, noting people of character who demonstrate these core attributes bring trust to our team. Richardson then addressed four lines of effort in the strategy – strengthen naval power at and from sea; achieve high velocity learning at every level; strengthen our Navy team for the future; and expand and strengthen our network of partners.
A question and answer session followed Richardson’s remarks, where he addressed the enlisted ratings alignment, mine warfare, counterterrorism, the DOD’s new blended retirement plan for military personnel, and the future of civilian careers. After cutting a Navy birthday cake, Richardson visited NAVSUP headquarters, where Yuen and members of his team briefed him on innovation such as additive manufacturing, social business, and food service initiatives; character and competence through ethics training and culture programs; NAVSUP’s face to the fleet through platform support, supply chain management, and contracting; and NAVSUP’s current and future operational readiness through fleet and regional support. Later in the day, Richardson travelled to the NAVSUP Weapon
Systems Support (NAVSUP WSS) Philadelphia site, where he met with the civilian and military leadership team to review NAVSUP WSS logistics support systems. During the visit, NAVSUP WSS Commander Rear Adm. Duke Heinz presented the command’s successes, challenges and new training and acquisition initiatives aligned with the CNO’s lines of effort. Richardson and Heinz focused on recent strategic industry engagements, comprehensive training regimens for the NAVSUP WSS workforce, and the stand-up of a Performance-Based Logistics Center of Excellence and Strategic Contracting Group. Richardson also received briefs from the leadership team on several NAVSUP WSS-supported platforms to include nuclear platforms, Virginia-class submarines, littoral combat ships, foreign military

Light up your holidays with Million Bulb Walk
Learn more about Green Spring and follow the African-American journey from slavery in the 1600s to freedom in 1803 at Historic Green Spring and Freedom Park. The event is hosted by The Friends of Green Spring, the Colonial National Historical Park, the James City County Historical Commission, and Freedom Park. The story told at this year’s event begins in Africa, and continues through the early days in Virginia when Sir William Berkeley was governor, as slavery gradually became the law of the land. Throughout the following century, slaves provided the labor force upon which Virginia’s prosperity was built. Freedom came to Green Spring’s slaves in 1803 after William Ludwell Lee, the owner of Green Spring, died at the young age of 28. In his will, he freed his slaves and made provisions for their education and support. The will provided land for the freed slaves on the “Hot Water Tract” portion of Green Spring, part of

GENERIC THEATER SPOOFS “THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS” AS A MUSICAL COMEDY By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot Correspondent
The world hasn’t been quite the same since “The Silence of the Lambs” introduced the moviegoing public to Dr. Hannibal Lecter in 1991. Hannibal the cannibal, the genius serial killer, became a part of pop culture, complete with his hissing threats. For his own devious motives, he aided a West Virginia FBI trainee, Clarice Starling, in capturing another serial killer, Buffalo Bill. The movie is one of the few in history to win all four top Oscars: best picture, actor (Anthony Hopkins), actress (Jodie Foster) and director (Jonathan Demme). Even though it had campy exaggerations that allowed audiences to laugh as they sought some comfort, like Hannibal talking about the census taker he had “with some fava beans and a nice chianti,” it was nothing to sing about. That doesn’t stop the Generic Theater, which is opening “Silence! The Musical,” an “unauthorized” spoof. It runs through Nov. 6. After all, this is the theater that did “Urinetown” (a musical about a totalitarian society in which folks had to pay to pee); “ Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” (in which the seventh president was a rock star who massacred American Indians); and a zombie “Evil Dead” musical. Last season, “Heathers: The Musical,” about high school ers from hell, broke the Generic’s attendance records. Always eager to be naughty, the Generic has been trying to get the rights to “Silence!” for five years. The show started as seven songs written and performed by the brothers Jon and Al Kaplan on the internet in 2002. The songs became so popular that the brothers wrote five more and created the musical, which made it to off-Broadway. Time magazine named it one of the best musicals of 2011, and it became somewhat “respectable.” Shon Stacy, who directed “Heathers” locally, courted the show’s legal agents, Theater Mogul, until the local rights were secured.
if you go What: “Silence! The Musical” Where: The Generic Theater, downunder Chrysler Hall, 215 St. Paul’s Blvd., Norfolk When: 8 p.m. tonight and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday; through Nov. 6, Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets: $18, 441-2110, www.generictheater.org Some song titles cannot be printed in this newspaper, but, on the other hand, are not much more raunchy than current political debates. The show opens with a chorus of “lambs.” (If you ever wondered about the title, it seems that Clarice Starling had an unhappy time as a child on a farm. As an adult, she still had nightmares about the slaughtering of lambs as they screamed. She tried to save one lamb but failed. It was slaughtered and she was sent to an orphanage. Lecter tells Clarice that she will never be at peace until the lambs are silenced.) Lecter is played by Garney Johnson, who reportedly is quite nonthreatening in his day job at the Lions Eye Bank in the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital complex. Clarice, complete with a lisping West Virginia accent, is played by Darden Dickerson, a nursery school teacher. There’s a contrast. Director Stacy is confronted with the task of keeping his performers straight-faced – never “asking” for laughs. If the show is to work, it has to be a spoof, not a burlesque. The infamous Buffalo Bill is played by Luke Scaros. Both Sen. Ruth Martin and her unfortunately imprisoned daughter, Catherine, are played by Alyssa Sortino. They exist to be repulsed and threatened. In the end, Hannibal has to excuse himself because “I’m having an old friend over for dinner.” Tasteless and proud of it? Or just tasteless? Either way, it’s not generic theater, but Generic Theater.

CREDO Mid-Atlantic runs for breast cancer awareness
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY: The Zombies celebrate 50th anniversary of Odessey and Oracle with North American tour, stunning new book Last full-album performances of critically-acclaimed album with original group members Press Release Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
The Zombies coming to Sandler center March 21, 2017. Tickets go on Sale Oct. 12 at 10 a.m. A recent article on the website Music Aficionado begins, “It’s damn near unfathomable to think that a band can be peaking a half-century after their first gig, but with the Zombies that wouldn’t be far from the truth.” More than fifty years after they became one of the first British Invasion groups to top the U.S. singles charts with the hit “She’s Not There,” and approaching the golden anniversary of their album, Odessey and Oracle, that is acknowledged as one of the classic pop albums of all time, the Zombies continue their remarkable 21stcentury resurgence with a North American tour and the release of a lavish coffee-table book. The Spring 2017 trek across the U.S. and Canada, which will continue to England and Europe later next year, includes the final full-album performances of Odessey and Oracle reuniting all four surviving members of the group, Colin Blunstone on lead vocals, Rod Argent on keyboards/vocals, Chris White on bass/vocals, and Hugh Grundy on drums. Along with founding members Blunstone and Argent, the current line-up of the Zombies, celebrating their current release Still Got That Hunger, includes bassist Jim Rodford, guitarist Tom Toomey and Steve Rodford (Jim’s son) on drums. In 1967 five young men walked into Abbey Road Studios – #3, tinkered with the gear that was left behind from the previous session (by none other than The Beatles’ recording Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band), and set out to make an album their own way. Of course, they never dreamed the results would loom so large in their lives. Ironically, although it led to the breakup of the original lineup, Odessey and Oracle produced the group’s biggest hit a year later (“Time of the Season”), and became a musical touchstone for generations to come. 50 years later, it brings the four surviving members back together on stage to perform the album in its entirety for the final time. The book, which will be published by BMG in March 2017, will be an album– sized (12” X 12”) volume of the lyrics of
U.S. Navy photo Sailors participate in the Naval Submarine Base New London Scare Cancer 5K run Oct. 14 to support breast cancer awareness in the community.
Odessey And Oracle, as well as many of their other popular songs, handwritten by the authors. Original artwork will accompany the lyrics – from both Terry Quirk who created the iconic cover artwork for Odessey and Oracle, and Vivienne Boucherat, who created individual works for each O&O song, inspired by both the songs and Quirk’s original work. The book’s text will include anecdotes behind the songs and their recording, all from the original members. Following the breakthrough with their first single “She’s Not There” in 1964 (a record just last year inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame), the Zombies continued to make music whose impact and influence resonate to this day, on songs like “Tell Her No,” “Whenever You’re Ready,” “Just Out of Reach,” and “I Want You Back Again,” and on Odessey and Oracle, released in 1968, which concluded with their biggest hit, “Time of the Season,” a track that has become a generational touchstone, used in numerous ‘60s–set films and television shows to musically illustrate the spirit of that era. In a strange turn of events, by the time that song was going up the charts, the Zombies had disbanded, with Blunstone starting a solo career and Argent forming a new band that bore his name. It became clear, however, that the final chapter of the Zombies’ story was unwritten, as the boxed set Zombie Heaven chronicled the depth of their creativity, and artists ranging from Tom Petty to M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel (She & Him) brought Zombies songs to new audiences. Blunstone and Argent assembled a new edition of the group. The media excitedly welcomed their return, leading to a 2011 performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. 2013–2016 has marked a major resurgence for the band, with a dozen tours across America, England, Europe, Japan and The Philippines (including notable stops at UK’s Glastonbury Fest, NYC’s Central Park SummerStage, Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival and two whirlwind visits to SXSW in Austin), the release of two studio albums (2013’s Breathe Out, Breathe In and 2015’s Still Got That Hunger), the debut on RollingStone. com & VEVO of their first–ever music video for “Any Other Way,” a PBS Special filmed on the legendary Austin City Limits stage, their first Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame nomination, Eminem’s sample/cover version of “Time of the Season” on his comeback album, “She’s Not There” being used in the Keira Knightley TV ads campaign for Coco Chanel, and remarkably, the 2015 release
of Still Got That Hunger marked a historical moment for the group, as it debuted on the Billboard album chart at the same time that Odessey and Oracle re–entered the Billboard Vinyl albums chart forty–eight years after its release. Also in 2015, original members White and Grundy re-joined their former bandmates for select performances of Odessey and Oracle – the first time the album had ever been performed in its entirety in the U.S. – including at a sold-out show in New York City. Writing about that special event for Rolling Stone, critic David Fricke called it “absolutely triumphant,” and said, “Either half of this night would have been exhilarating in its own right. Together, they were a story
still busy being told – in classic-pop history, psychedelic monument, continuing aspiration and enduring friendship.” The magic of that evening and the few other O&O shows was too undeniable to not continue to share it, so the band decided to bring it back one more time for this new set of tour dates. As Yahoo Music put it, ““With a legacy rivaling that of nearly all of their fellow British Invasion mates – and that company includes the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, and Small Faces – The Zombies have the singles, the albums, and the actual playing chops to rival any band that ever was.” Their distinctive sound made the world take notice with the first notes of “She’s Not There,” and today, they’re still making pop history.

Feed backyard birds this season for the greater, global good From Brandpoint
When you fill your bird feeders and put fresh water in the birdbath this season, you’ll definitely be giving your feathered friends a helping hand. But you could also be serving the greater good! Take note of the birds that visit your yard, and you’ll be ready to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), a four-day annual event during which thousands of people around the world record information about the species of birds they see. The information backyard bird-watchers gather assists scientists in better understanding the movement of species around the globe, how well different species are — or aren’t — doing and how factors like climate change are affecting bird populations everywhere. And when the bird count is over, you’ll still enjoy a yard filled with the pleasing colors and sounds of wild birds.
Birds are important
Celebrate 100 years of majesty with a visit to a national park Insider tips for a weekend at a national park site From Brandpoint
It has been 100 years since an important American institution was born. On August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson and was established as a new federal bureau to oversee the country’s national parks and monuments. Since then, the national park system has grown to encompass more than 400 areas covering more than 84 million acres in every state. With that act, grand sweeps of mountains, canyons, forests, islands and seashores were preserved and made accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Whether you are looking for back-country skiing down a mountain or just a scenic afternoon drive, our national park system has plenty of resources and infrastructure to make a visit enjoyable and memorable to just about anyone. It was John Muir, a natural-
ist and early parks advocate who said it best: “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, overcivilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” No matter where you live, there’s a good chance one of these mesmerizing landscapes or historical monuments is just a quick road trip away. However, while millions will visit these majestic spots each year, few realize a major challenge faces national parks across the country — waste. The National Park Service manages more than 100 million pounds of waste nationally, much of which is generated by serving more than 300 million park visitors per year — that’s enough to fill the Statue of Liberty more than 1,800 times. While waste is a major issue in the parks, visitors can make a difference. Subaru of America, experts in zerolandfill sustainability, is sharing its knowledge of these practices with the National

Parks to help keep the parks beautiful for the next century. As part of that effort, the automaker, alongside National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), has developed a set of tips that visitors can adopt to help reduce some of the biggest contributors to landfills from national parks, including paper, plastics and glass: Opt for online: While paper maps can be a park staple, there are smartphone apps that provide the same information and more. Even without cell service, some nation-
al park apps will give helpful information about where you can spot wildlife, catch a beautiful sunset, or even find a refillable water station. Mug for the parks: Bring a reusable coffee mug from home or buy one from the souvenir shop to help reduce the 58 billion paper cups that are sent to America’s landfills every year. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle): Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. Keep a refillable water bottle on hand or buy one at gift shop, while taking advantage of convenient refilling stations around the park. Ditch the Plastic Bag: Help reduce waste by not using a plastic bag for your souvenirs or groceries that you bring into the parks. Instead, bring your own reusable bag or tote for your items to help eliminate plastic bag waste. Take Out What You Bring in: Think about what you bring in. Check to see if it can be recycled or composted in the park you are visiting. If it cannot, try to take it home. It is often far easier to recycle near your home than in rural park areas.
Simple tips for greening your office From askHRgreen.org
Did you know that as much as 85% of waste generated in offices is recyclable? Recycling is the norm in city and county offices across Hampton Roads. Please consider following suit and starting a recycling program in your business or office. By recycling we reduce our environmental impact on the community, create lower cost raw materials for manufacturing and increase the life
of existing landfills. The City of Newport News is constantly researching new handling and recycling methods for our city and the region so that we can all recycle more, trash less. Here’s some quick tips for proper waste disposal at the office: Place recycling bins in each office, near each printer/ copier and in each conference room. Recycle your paper, alumi-
num cans, plastic/glass bottles and cardboard. Additional items may be accepted depending on your recycling provider. Toss into the trash all dirty takeout containers and cups, paper towels/napkins/tissues, and waxed cardboard milk or juice cartons. Set up a plastic film recycling station in your break room where coworkers can bring plastic grocery bags, newspaper bags, and clean Ziplock bags for recycling.
When the station is full, simply drop off the plastic film at the plastic bag return at the nearest grocery or big box store. Ditch bottled water and use tap. Scrape food scraps into the trash, not the sink, when you clean up your meal. This is a guest post by Dan Baxter, Business Recycling Coordinator, with the City of Newport News Public Works, Solid Waste Resource Recovery Unit.
“We enjoy birdwatching and feeding birds because they brighten our backyards and entertain us with their antics, especially during long winters,” says Richard Cole, co-founder of Cole’s Wild Bird Products. “But birds also play an important role in maintaining environmental balance around the world. They pollinate plants, scatter seeds so new plants can grow, help control insect populations and recycle nutrients back into the soil. It’s critical for us to have a greater understanding of how bird species are doing around the world, and to do our part to help take care of them.” Bird populations are so diverse, large and widespread that it would be virtually impossible for scientists to gather all the data they need without help from backyard bird enthusiasts who participate in the GBBC. The information gathered help scientists identify species whose numbers are decreasing or increasing, changes in range or migratory patterns and more. Fluctuations in bird populations are often the earliest signs of greater environmental changes.
What you can do Founded in 1998, and co-sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society and Bird Studies Canada, the next Great Backyard Bird Count will be Feb. 17-20, 2017. You can start preparing to participate by taking steps now to make your own backyard an oasis for birds. Start by offering a variety of feeders. Different species prefer different styles of feeders. Tube feeders are versatile and appeal to a wide range of bird species. They can also handle large (think sunflower) or small seeds (like petite mixes) equally well. Some birds prefer to cling to feeders while dining, rather than perch, so use a versatile Mesh feeder; or try a Bowl feeder, perfect for serving suet in kibble form, dried mealworms and fresh fruit. You can find a variety of feeders from Cole’s. Be sure to keep all feeders clean and in good condition to help prevent disease and injury. Serve a variety of birdfeed. In winter, seeds with a high fat or oil content are best for birds, so offer black oil sunflower seeds, niger, raw peanuts and suet. To attract the greatest variety of birds, try Cole’s Blue Ribbon Blend, which incorporates black oil sunflower seeds, sunflower meats, white proso millet and cracked corn. Special Feeder is a high-energy blend that also attracts large numbers of birds, with the perfect mixture of black oil sunflower, sunflower meats, black stripe, raw peanuts, safflower and pecans. Birds also need (and love) suet, Cole’s offers no-melt suet cakes, specialty suets and a seed and suet mix, Nutberry Suet, to help ensure birds get the fat stores they need to weather winter. Fill every feeder with quality food. Birds won’t be satisfied with birdfeed that contains cheap fillers, and they won’t get the nutrition they need. Think of it as the difference between serving your family fresh veggies instead of fast food. Serve birdfeed that contains quality ingredients and is free of chemicals or other toxins that could be harmful to birds. Cole’s formulates all its feed to attract birds, and uses only natural, top-quality seeds. Their products contain no fillers, preservatives, mineral oils or pesticides. Be sure to also offer birds plenty of fresh water; it can be very difficult for them to find unfrozen water sources in winter. By feeding backyard birds and participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count, you can be counted on to help protect the wellbeing of wild bird populations. What’s more, the work you do prepping your yard for the count will benefit you — and your feathered friends — throughout the year.

The Ultimate Fighter LATAM Ep. 8 Recap By Damon Martin Special to UFC.com
It’s been a long road to get to the semifinals, but the last four fighters are now poised to face off, with two of them moving on to the finale on November 5 in Mexico City. This week’s episode saw the last quarterfinal match unfold, as Marcelo Rojo from Team Griffin took on John Bedoya from Team Liddell. Bedoya was drawn back into the competition after Alejandro Martinez was forced out of the tournament due to the cuts he suffered in his win over Fabian Quintanar in the opening round. Bedoya originally lost his fight to advance in the tournament, but when Martinez was unable to continue, he was given a second chance. While Bedoya is the fighter who was chosen to face Rojo in the quarterfinals, most of Rojo’s training partners from Team Griffin didn’t agree with the decision to give Bedoya the second chance. Most of them believed the nod should have gone to Yasser Castillo, who lost a very close majority decision in his fight as well. The consensus ahead of the rematch is that Bedoya isn’t on Rojo’s level and they believe that the Team Griffin fighter should have no problem exerting his will and getting the job done to move on to the semifinals. Meanwhile, during Team Liddell’s training session, Bedoya is taking this second chance very seriously as he prepares for the showdown with Rojo. Bedoya is still very raw in his overall MMA skill set, but the coaches believe they can take advantage of his physical tools and craft him into a weapon ready for battle against Rojo. Bedoya said during the episode that even after he was eliminated, he never stopped training like he had another fight coming up because there was always a chance someone could get injured or would be unable to continue, and he wanted to stay ready.
Courtesy of UFC/ The Ultimate Fighter LATAM–Marcelo Rojo vs. John Bedoya in the semifinals.
That may have played a part in why Bedoya was picked to step back into the tournament, because he never lost the will to train and prepare even though he was already eliminated in the second fight of the season. While Bedoya is doing everything in his power to get ready for what lies ahead, his teammate Ilianovich Chalo actually believes that there’s a bigger problem to deal with than his skill set. Chalo expressed concerns about Bedoya’s psychology going into the fight because he already suffered a loss, and a second defeat in the same tournament would be a tough pill to swallow. Chalo wonders if Bedoya has enough confidence to carry him through the fight with Rojo and get the win to move into the semifinals? Outside of the fight this week, the rest of the competitors did enjoy some activities away from training after a professional sushi chef came to the house to teach them how to make the delicious delectable that had everybody’s mouths watering. Some of the fighters even turned sushi rolling into a competition, although there was one face missing from the crowd. Claudio Puelles decided not to partake but not because he was being antisocial — the Team Liddell fighter was trying to maintain his weight ahead of the semifinals and he knew being around that much sushi would undoubtedly ruin his diet. Food activities while some fighters are cutting weight must feel like a cruel trick.
While Puelles had to fight off the urge to drown in sushi, Rojo and Bedoya were ready for battle as they looked to move into the semifinals of the lightweight tournament this season
MARCELO ROJO VS. JOHN BEDOYA ROUND 1 As soon as the fight got underway, Bedoya rushed forward with a series of strikes while looking to use his considerable reach advantage, but the aggression backfired and he was quickly countered with a takedown from Rojo. On the mat, Bedoya did a good job fighting off his back while looking for an omoplata counter and keeping Rojo from landing anything significant on the top. Still, Rojo spent a good chunk of the round on top while peppering away at Bedoya with short punches from inside the guard. After the fighters were stood back up, Bedoya countered with a takedown of his own before getting locked down in Rojo’s rubber guard. Bedoya couldn’t mount a ton of offense but he did finish the round on top.
ROUND 2 The second round saw Rojo breathing heavy as he immediately went after Bedoya to look for the takedown. This time, Bedoya reversed the takedown attempt and he put
Rojo on the mat as he started looking for punches and elbows from the top. Coach Forrest Griffin constantly yelled at Rojo to stop playing with his jiu-jitsu and instead get up from the ground. Rojo eventually worked his way back to the feet, and this time he was able to plant Bedoya on the mat. From there, Rojo maintains his top control while tagging Bedoya with some hard stinging shots as the fight came to an end. It was a back and forth battle that really came down to damage done on the ground as both fighters took advantage when they were on top. When it was all over, Marcelo Rojo was handed the victory, much to the dismay of coach Chuck Liddell, who felt like there should have been a third round. Unfortunately, the judges disagreed and Rojo moved into the semifinals. With that fight finished, it was time to announce the semifinal matchups that will ultimately determine the two competitors moving on to the finale in November. The first fight will pit Martin Bravo from Team Griffin against Leonardo Rodriguez from Team Liddell. The other matchup will see top pick Claudio Puelles from Team Liddell take on Marcelo Rojo from Team Griffin. It all comes down to these final two fights in the last two episodes, and it all kicks off next Wednesday when the new episode of The Ultimate Fighter Latin America debuts on UFC FIGHT PASS.
Newman extends contract with Richard Childress Racing
Brad Keselowski knows a solid run will keep him in the Chase as Talladega looms By Rick Minter
Brad Keselowski hasn’t won since July 9 at Kentucky, but strong finishes in the Chase have served him well.
By Rick Minter Universal Uclick
After months of speculation about Ryan Newman’s future at Richard Childress Racing, the team announced this week that Newman, a 17-time winner on the Sprint Cup Series, had signed a multiyear contract extension. Newman, now in his 16th full season in Cup, Courtesy of NASCAR has spent the last three with Ryan Newman extends contract RCR, but has yet to win in with Richard Childress Racing. the team’s No. 31 Chevrolet. His current teammates are Austin Dillon, who drives the No. 3, and Paul Menard, who drives the No. 27. None of them has recorded a win in the past three seasons, but Newman does have a secondplace finish in the championship, in 2014. “Ryan’s consistency on the track has been a benefit to our organization, and this extension solidifies the future of our racing program,” Richard Childress, chairman and CEO of RCR, said in a team release. “Ryan proved the first year he was here that we could contend for championships, and with this continuation, I believe we can fulfill our commitment to winning races and a championship.” Newman, 38, added: “Our goal to win a championship all but turned into a reality during our first year together. I feel like since then we have some unfinished business to complete. “I’m fortunate to have forged a great relationship with my crew chief, Luke Lambert, and I very much want to not only help him reach our goal of winning a Cup championship, but also get him his first Cup victory.”
As the 12 Sprint Cup drivers still in the Chase for the Sprint Cup head to Kansas Speedway for the second of three races in the Round of 12, Brad Keselowski is riding an impressive string of top finishes. Although he’s yet to win a Chase race and hasn’t won a race at all since July 9 at Kentucky Speedway, he’s run ninth or better in the past seven races, with five of those finishes in the top five. His worst finish in the Chase so far is a seventh-place run last Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. But on a day in which five Chase drivers finished 30th or worse, seventh was good enough to give him a 25-point cushion over ninth place heading into Kansas. And unlike many other Chase drivers, he doesn’t feel the urgency to win at Kansas with wreck-prone Talladega Speedway looming next week. Talladega has become one of Keselowski’s best tracks. Of his 21 career Cup wins, four have come at Talladega, more than any other track. He got his first Cup win there in 2009, driving for the underdog team fielded by maverick team owner James Finch, and earned the fourth checkered flag this past May aboard the No. 2 Ford from Team Penske. “I’m definitely looking forward to Talladega,” Keselowski said. “It’s been a great track for us, and hopefully it

will continue to be so.” He said recollections of that first win, which came after contact with Carl Edwards coming to the finish line, are still vivid in his mind. “There are many memories from that race,” he said. “What I take away from it is how good it felt to win my first NASCAR Sprint Cup race and how excited I was. “I’ll never forget that moment.” Over the years, Keselowski has proven that his first win wasn’t a fluke, although he still wouldn’t rate himself as one of the better restrictor-plate racers. “I think I’m OK at it,” he said. “I don’t know if I’m good at it. The results are decent, but I just enjoy the challenge. “I don’t run from it.” Keselowski, a four-time winner in the 2016 regular season, said he be-
lieves his No. 2 team is close to getting its first Chase win this year. “We have to, of course, continue to push to be better,” he said. “We’re running top-five and top-10, and if you do that consistently enough, you’ll win races.” And on the days he doesn’t win, his goal is to increase his points cushion to ensure that he keeps advancing toward the next round of the Chase. Four drivers are eliminated every three weeks until there are only four competing for the championship in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 20. That means that as he races at Kansas Speedway this weekend, his main goal is to put himself in better position to advance to the Round of 8. “We need to grow that (points cushion) number,” he said. “That’s the most important thing.”
