hen most people think of amphibious operations they still garner visions of World War II-era assaults on heavily defended beaches. This couldn’t be farther from

the truth for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Throughout its work-up training cycle and now in the sixth month of a deployment, the 24th MEU continued to push the preconceived limits of its amphibious reach using the MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft paired with its KC130J Hercules refueling and transport planes.

According to the 24th MEU’s commanding officer, Col. Frank Donovan, the KC130J’s aerial refueling capability greatly enhances the MEU’s crisis-response capabilities. With 22 of the 29 aircraft in the MEU having refueling probes, this means much more than just the marriage of the new Osprey with the KC-130J. The MEU’s CH-53E Super Stallion

helicopters and AV-8B Harrier jets also utilize the refueling ability of the KC-130J. The use of aerial refueling platforms could allow the Marines to essentially fly uninterrupted as long as they have gas – removing all other factors like crew rest or other flight restrictions. “The professionals of our KC-130J detachment maximize

the range, speed and lethality of our MV-22s, AV-8Bs and CH53Es,” said Donovan. Donovan explained this increased capability would be critical in responding to contingencies like the recent uprisings that took place throughout the Middle East, and provides higher commands more options SEE AERIAL 6A

Combat logistics element practices for noncombatant evacuation operations CPL. MICHAEL LOCKETT

26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit is one of the most versatile units in the Marine Corps, capable of delivering aid with one hand and destroying those who would threaten America with the other. Marines and sailors of the MEU focused on training for the former Sept. 20. They established an evacuation control center and ran Marines acting as role-players through the process of registering, moving them to the appropriate location, searching and screening, and evacuating them. “We are conducting evacuation operations in support of the MEU’s mission essential task list of providing non-combatant evacuation operations,” said 1st Lt. Shane Cooley, Combat Logistics Battalion 26 landing support platoon commander. The NEO, conducted at Fort Pickett Maneuver Training Center, Va., was practice for a crisis situation where the Marines might find themselves evacuating citizens from a situation

where a foreign government had lost control of its population and could not guarantee the safety of American citizens abroad. The ECC is set up in a series of stations. Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines will provide external security and the initial screening, removing obvious weapons and contraband items from evacuees. The refugees will then be processed through an administration center, going through appropriate lines based on their category, be they American citizens, families of American citizens, embassy employees, or foreign nationals. “We’re going to determine which category these refugees are in, scan their ID’s, get accountability of everyone before we send them to the right place,” said Cpl. Michael Johnson, landing support specialist. There are medical personnel on hand to deal with any situations falling within their purview during the operation. “We’re providing healthcare to anyone who needs it: U.S. citizens, allied citizens, detainees – they all rate medical care,” said Seaman Nic

Covington, a corpsman. There are areas for treating any immediate medical needs, and an area for quarantining anyone with an infectious disease. “We’re there to be ready for whatever may come, heaven or hell,” said Covington. Military police provide internal security, detaining unruly refugees and placing them in a cordoned off area to be dealt with and searched more thoroughly for contraband. “It’s our job to conduct a hasty search after they’ve already been searched by the BLT at the external perimeter,” said Gunnery Sgt. Allen Smith, military police detachment commander. “We’re looking for weapons, drugs, IED’s, anything the Transportation Security Administration would look for at the airport.” In the turbulent international climate, it’s ever more necessary to train for these kinds of situations. With any luck, these skills will never be needed, but if they are, the 26th MEU will stand ready. The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will deploy in 2013.

Protect yourself from scammers Several scams targeting military retirees, their family members and widows were brought to the attention of the Retired Services Office over the years. Usually they run until they are detected, then slither underground for a while and come back later. One in particular is usually run at community centers, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. It’s called pension poaching. Usually there is an agent or salesperson with little or no training in veteran benefits who will often tell the victim they can get instant eligibility for additional veteran benefits through a quick overhaul of their investments. These unscrupulous investment advisors will make it sound easy with the assurance of no risk. During challenging times a victim can be very vulnerable and easily swayed in this con game.

The agent cons someone into purchasing financial products through the nefarious company in order to make someone eligible for Department of Veteran Affairs’ pensions and other benefits. The usual pitch involves getting a victim to transfer retirement assets into an irrevocable trust so they appear improvised. This action is designed to meet the eligibility requirements for VA pensions and related programs, such as Aid and Attendance, which pays additional benefits for veterans who need assistance with day-to-day living. Often the salesman will convince the retiree the VA does not examine why someone may be a millionaire one day and poverty stricken the next. What they fail to mention is Medicaid will verify the reason, and this action could jeopardize eligibility for benefits. It’s called Karma; do bad things

and bad things will come back tenfold. This includes attempting to get over on the system. The new trust the con artist steers a victim toward usually contains annuities and long-term investments often considered inappropriate for older retirees. Some annuities must be held for a decade or longer to pay a monthly income. To keep from being a victim of these scams, work with reputable and professional veteran representatives. Don’t be fooled by companies with official sounding names, don’t depend on the care facilities to advise you on veteran benefits, and check out all informational sources first before committing to them. To verify provider qualifications contact David Massey, deputy Securities Administrator of North Carolina at 919-733-3924.

No more searching for babysitters One of the most exciting programs available to Marines, sailors and their families is offered through Marine Corps Community Services Children, Youth and Teen Programs – The Hourly Care Program. Marla Talley, manager of the Family Care Branch, provides some insight in how to utilize this program, where care is available and how to get registered. RR – What is meant by hourly care? MT – Hourly care is childcare for patrons who do not require regular full-time care while they are working. Hourly care is typically used by families who need services for a limited amount of time, for example parents who work less than five days per week but still need care when a parent has an appointment, for personal time or

to enable the child to learn to interact with other children independently from mom and dad. RR – There are multiple Child Development Centers aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, which of the facilities are available for hourly care? MT– All of our Child Development Centers have space available for hourly care. RR – Are there any pre-registration requirements or age limitations when it comes to hourly care? MT – Childcare is available at the Child Development Centers for children who are at least 6 weeks old through 5 years old. The Youth Pavilions offer care for school-age children 6 through 12 years old. Parents need

to register their child at the Tarawa Terrace II Child Development Center Resource and Referral Office. RR – Is there a Parent’s Night Out program available at any of the Child Development Center’s? MT – Tarawa Terrace I CDC and Tarawa Terrace Youth Pavilion offers care on Saturday evenings from 6 through 11:30 p.m. Children 6 weeks to 5 years attend the CDC, and children ages 6 through 12 attend the Youth Pavilion. For further information on hourly care or other information on the Children, Youth and Teen Programs visit the website at cytp or call 450-0553. Always remember here at MCCS we are proud to serve those who serve.

Hunting safety, must know basics Whether it’s for sport or food, hunting requires focus, skill and patience. Hunters should also exercise caution – hunting can be very dangerous. Every Marine knows and applies gun safety, and hunters are no stranger to the precautions either. However the average number of hunting accidents in the U.S. holds steady at approximately 240 per year with an average of 20 fatalities. Hunters involved in these accidents have one thing in common; they didn’t follow basic hunter’s safety. Sometimes accidents happen, but not all injuries come as the result of a firearms mishap. Uneven terrain or dangerous animals are hazards, also putting hunters at risk. It’s important for hunters to know about potential dangers before heading out to stalk their prey. Take a free hunter safety course, which is required in North Carolina, to arm yourself with the knowledge to protect yourself while in the woods. Knowing the rules is the key to safe hunting. Hunters should determine the requirements of a particular area they plan to hunt. Here are a few hunting safety tips to keep in mind when hunting this season. Firearms, including bows, and alcohol or drugs, including prescriptions, do not mix. Treat every firearm and bow as if it were loaded, keep

the safety on until you’re ready to shoot. Wear appropriate clothing for the elements and make yourself visible to other hunters. Deer can’t see colors, do not wear camouflage without also wearing hunter orange. Identify your target and beyond, emotions can run high when hunting – look twice, shoot once. Tell a dependable person where you’re hunting and when you plan to return. If you’re using a tree stand, wear a full body safety harness; one in three hunters using a tree stand fall. Always use a cord or rope to raise and lower all equipment in tree stands so you can use three points of contact when climbing up or down, which is when most accidents occur. Hunting season brings hazards for non-hunters as well in the form of deer-related vehicle crashes. Deer collisions become more frequent during fall and winter due to migration and mating season, which typically occurs from October through December. About 1.5 million deervehicle collisions happen each year in the U.S. according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Those accidents cause about 150 deaths and $1.1 billion in property damage annually. Be alert. Watch out for wildlife on the roadways.

Marines honor fallen brothers CPL. MARK GARCIA Regional Command Southwest

Hundreds of Marines gathered to honor the lives of two fallen comrades killed during the attack on Camp Bastion Sept. 14. During the two separate memorial ceremonies, held Sept. 19 and 20, Marines paid tribute to Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell. Both were killed in action while engaging the enemy. Raible was the commanding officer of Marine Attack Squadron 211, and Atwell was an aircraft electrical, instrument and flight control systems technician with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 16. Before each of the ceremonies began, Marines constructed a traditional battlefield cross providing them the opportunity to pay their final respects. The memorial consisted of a helmet with identification tags to signify the Marines will never be forgotten, a rifle with bayonet inverted signifying a time of prayer and a break in action to pay tribute, and a pair of boots signifying this was the Marines last March. During the ceremonies, commanders and friends spoke of Raible and Atwell, describing their character as men and Marines, and recalling what they would remember most about them. Gen. John Allen, commander of the International Security Assistance Force, offered words of encouragement to the Marines during Raible’s memorial ceremony. “It really is an honor for me to stand among you this afternoon, for this solemn occasion, this solemn ceremony today we remember and pay tribute to a great Marine,” Allen said. “He was committed until the very last with engaging the enemy in the defense of his Marines and his squadron. Without hesitation in a moment of great uncertainty and danger, he ran to the sound of guns. He organized his Marines, and they fought like Marines always fight. He was

Marines listen to personal recollections during a memorial ceremony, Sept. 20. During the ceremony, Marines paid tribute to Sgt. Bradley Atwell, an aircraft electrical, instrument and flight control systems technician with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 16. Atwell was killed in action while engaging insurgents during attack on Camp Bastion, Sept. 14. final respects to Atwell. “He was of the highest caliber and quality of Marine and person. He was the type of person you run across every so often, and you’re grateful you had the chance to meet them because you know they’re on their way to something bigger, to making a difference,” said Staff Sgt. Abraham Mojica, a staff noncommissioned officer in work center 620 with MALS16. I miss him. It wasn’t a surprise to me when I was told he was one of the first Marines running up to division that night. He was a fearless Marine who will always live in my heart as a hero. Sgt. Atwell thank you for everything. I and the rest of the guys really miss you, Semper Fi brother.” Cpl. Mitchell Florea, a communication navigation technician with MALS-16, also spoke during Atwell’s memorial ceremony. “Sgt. Atwell was the true embodiment of Marine Corps values and traditions. He was an outstanding Marine, but more than that, he was an honorable man,” Florea said. “Sgt. Atwell’s heroic ac-

a Marine who embodied the courage and the bravery of this storied squadron. He was your skipper, he was your friend, and he was like family to so many of you.” Gen. Allen also praised the Marines’ sacrifice while deployed. “You are part of the finest fighting force this world has ever known. Your sacrifice protects our homeland and the American people. You also gave the people of Afghanistan a chance to be free from the tyranny of terror.” Gunnery Sgt. Donald Miner, an aviation life support systems division chief with VMA 211, also spoke during Raible’s ceremony. “As we gather here today, it’s important to remember how Lt. Col. Raible lived his life and the example he set for all of us to follow,” Miner said. “I am proud to say that Lt. Col. Chris Raible was my commanding officer. I’m a better Marine because of it. My prayers are with his wife and kids, and his family and friends who will miss him.” The following day Marines offered personal reflections and paid their

tions will never be forgotten. He quickly rounded up every Marine and did not hesitate when it came to the call of duty, and like a real leader of Marines, he took charge of what needed to be done. He was a good husband, a great mentor and like a brother to me. Because of who he was, I will forever stand in complete reverence and respect for him not only as a great man but also as leader of Marines. If I do pick up sergeant, I wish I can be half the man he was. We love you and miss you brother, rest in peace and one day I’ll see you again.” Both Marines will be greatly missed and forever remembered for their sacrifice and courage in the face of adversity.

Battalion Landing Team conducts infantry platoon battle course

Marines assigned to Battalion Landing Team, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit observe a possible hostile area at Fort Pickett, Va., recently. BLT 3rd Bn., 2nd Marines conducted an infantry platoon battle course working in a coordinated effort involving mortars, machine guns, and rifles to engage and suppress an enemy while isolating and seizing an objective.

FORT PICKETT, VA. CPL. KYLE N. RUNNELS 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit


attalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit conducted an infantry platoon battle course integrating live fire with support from its weapons platoon at Fort Pickett, Va., recently. “It is an opportunity for company staff to work with the platoons to see how well our training over the last few months has – not necessarily culminated, but how far it has gone,” said Gunnery Sgt. Jerome Bostick, a company gunnery sergeant for BLT 3rd Bn. 2nd Marines. “Part of this predeployment training process accomplishes some of the 26th MEU’s mission essential tasks that need to be accomplished, grading our ability to move

and communicate, medicate and evacuate.” The MET this exercise supported was being able to conduct offensive operations. Every MEU has a mission essential task list focusing on necessary capabilities for each element of the Marine AirGround Task Force. Staff Sgt. Joshua Wartchow, BLT 3rd Bn., 2nd Marines’ Weapons Company platoon sergeant said, “Today consisted of multiple company-level objectives. They’re painted to us as technical vehicles and our portion was support by fire with the 60mm mortars. We were one of the first squads of the western portion of the range. As they were patrolling up, the first squad engaged the enemy, isolated the objective and secured it. It was our company objective bravo.” With multiple weapon systems in play on the simulated battlefield, the teams

had to work together in order to accomplish the mission. “Once it was done, the mortar men pushed through to a point of defilade to a shoulder-launched multipurpose assault weapon that destroyed an enemy heavy machine gun bunker,” said Wartchow. “It provided us the ability to move into our fire position cutting off any enemy egress from the north while the rest of the platoon came out and secured a trench line, which was BLT objective one. At the same time our machine gunners were off on the eastern side of the range and in their support by fire mission engaging the trench line until the 0311s got into the trench.” With all elements of the BLT working together in a coordinated effort, the basic training these Marines received was a critical part of the evolutions success. “Our mission to support the

MEU is to basically prepare for everything,” said Bostick. “As long as we can turn around and execute the basics there’s not much we can’t accomplish. You can morph the basics into anything to dictate or shape the battlefield the way you want it. Whether it be through direct action or just a show of force, its good letting people know what we are capable of, we can do what we are trained to do at places like Fort Pickett.” With the hard training these Marines were conducting, the results proved successful. “Everytime we get an opportunity to come out and actually put rounds down range, on a live fire range – it shows … how well we do our job,” said Bostick. “It shows our actions – come together to complete a single task or mission. It is the individuals who come together to accomplish a common goal, and everyone has a part and everyone has a job.”


Sailors receive anchors in Afghanistan CPL. ANTHONY WARD JR.

Regional Command Southwest

“Ask the chief ” is a saying many sailors and Marines heard in their career. The rank of chief petty officer is held in high regard in the United States Navy, and Sept. 14, chief selectees throughout the Navy accepted their anchors and joined the storied rank of chief. Six chief selectees stood rigidly at attention, eyes trained forward as they waited to have their anchors placed on their collars in front of their peers, higher officers, senior enlisted and spectators at the Camp Leatherneck Chapel. “The chief makes the Navy move,” said Command Master Chief Petty Officer Michael Smith, Regional Command Southwest command master chief. “The rank of chief petty officer has been around for the last 119 years since 1893. “A chief is charged with the unique job of mentoring not only those junior enlisted sailors, but also the junior officers,” said Smith. “Ensuring they’re taught the traditions and customs of the Navy, as well as advised on matters pertaining to their job field.” Chief petty officer is the equivalent to an E-7 pay grade for all services in the armed forces, but the Navy holds their chiefs to a higher standard. The storied rank is regarded with honor. “When I hear the words ‘the chief ’ the first thing I think about is pride,” said Chief Petty Officer Irene Aguilar, a recently promoted chief. “Pride in the Navy, pride in service, pride in what we do on a daily basis and showing the pride to our junior sailors. They are the ones who are going to be filling our shoes in the future.”

Her mentor during the process of becoming a chief believes it’s care that defines a chief petty officer. “It’s taking care of people,” said Chief Petty Officer Brandon Bruce, Aguilar’s mentor during her induction ceremony. “Taking care of those junior sailors and officers. As a chief, I get to take care of people a little more than as a (petty officer) first class.” Before receiving their anchors, the chief selects are taken through an induction process to ensure they can assume the tremendous responsibility of a chief petty officer. “Along the way it was different types of training,” said Aguilar. A lot of this has to do with leadership and mission guidance principles of the Navy master chief petty officer. “They had physical training at 5 a.m., morning briefs from 6 to 6:30 a.m. and afternoon classes from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.,” said Bruce. “We task them throughout the whole six-week process.” During the course, the chief selectees are tested to see how they can use their resources to their advantage and accomplish those tasks given to them. Despite being in a deployed environment, the chief selectees were put through the best possible induction course with what resources were provided to them. All of them passed with flying colors and found themselves standing in front of more than 40 people as they received their precious anchors and assumed duties as a chief. At an event in 1993 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the chief petty officer rank, then chief of Naval Operations Adm. Frank B. Kelso went on record saying, "In the United States Navy, the title chief petty officer carries with it responsibilities and privileges no other armed force in the world grants enlisted people. These responsibilities and privileges exist because for 100 years, chiefs have routinely sought out greater challenges and assumed more responsibility.” His words ring true since he uttered them 19 years ago and continue to be exhibited throughout the Navy by chief petty officers everywhere.

speak with them. “First, let me just say it is my honor and pleasure to be standing here in front of you and talking to you today,” said Capel, command senior enlisted for the International Security Assistance ForceAfghanistan.

Capel continued talking to the Marines, thanking them for the sacrifices they made during their deployment. “How many of you missed an anniversary or a child’s birthday?” he asked. A few Marines raised their hands. “How many of you missed Thanksgiving or Christmas?” He asked again. Almost all the Marines in the formation raised their hands. “You all sacrificed your time with your family for others,” he continued. “You all gave the people in Afghanistan a better life. I want to personally thank each and every single one of you for supporting and defending the freedom of Americans, and others across the world.” Capel continued talking to the Marines and mentioned a previous deployment to Afghanistan in 2006. “I was here when the Marines first got to Helmand,” he said. “When the Marines first got here they gave the Taliban a few choices. “Either throw down your weapons and stop fighting, leave Helmand because you will not stay, or you can stay and die.” Capel continued on, thanking the Marines for their service. “You swore (an oath) you would protect and defend our homeland,” he said. “Thanks to you for signing up to do it because we can’t do it without you. I just want to thank you for your service. I am truly honored to serve with you.”

Marine still fights despite injuries Engineers become SGT. JAMES MERCURE Regional Command Southwest

There was blood down my leg after I got shot.” Lance Cpl. Ethan Burk, a hazardous materials management coordinator, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), was on his way to work when he heard the first rocket-propelled grenade explode behind him. Avoiding the giant fireball from the explosion, he had driven straight into an ambush of heavily armed insurgents firing at his fourwheeled tractor, which had no armor to stop the barrage of bullets striking all around him. “I could see the muzzle flashes from the corner of the compound,” said Burk. “That’s when I realized they were all aiming at me. I felt something hit my arm, but I thought I had just banged it on something. Then I rolled out of the (tractor) and

ducked. When I reached for my rifle they started shooting at me again, and that’s when I realized they had a lot more firepower than I did because they were firing too fast for just regular AK47s.” Maneuvering behind a barrier, Burk could only see and judge the insurgents’ movements in the darkness by their muzzle flashes. So he pressed on, trying to use the flight line’s light to see where the insurgents had holed up so he could get the drop on them. After moving to a covered position, one of his friends and the only other Marine in the area, Lance Cpl. Kevin Sommers, a cryogenics technician with MALS 16, 3rd MAW (Fwd.), jumped over a barrier and almost landed on top of Burk. The two Marines waited for the insurgents to try and flank them, when they didn’t, the pair climbed over concrete barriers to get better firing points in relation to the enemy. “Once we realized they weren’t coming after us, we

jumped over the T-walls and cleared out the area behind the barriers. At that point the British (quick reaction force) showed up, and the (helicopters) were shooting from their main guns at the insurgents fighting position right overhead,” Burk said. “We flagged the soldiers down with a light and yelled “Marines, Marines, Marines” to let them know the situation. The guy in charge of the British QRF told us to go get my arm checked out because he saw the blood on my uniform.” After Burk and Sommers checked in for accountability, Burk went to a corpsman and found out he had been shot in the elbow by one of the insurgent’s machine gun rounds. “After I had it X-rayed, they found two pieces of the bullet still lodged in my arm. They had to surgically remove it,” Burk explained. “After the whole ordeal, they asked if I wanted to go home because I was injured. I told them I just got here, why would I want to go home?”



26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

One might not associate bulk fuel specialists with sweeping for mines or water purification specialists with operating heavy machinery. Nevertheless, the Marines of the engineer detachment of Combat Logistics Battalion 26, currently reinforcing the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, are doing precisely that. The engineer detachment instituted a training plan involving cross-training all of the Marines within the section, regardless of individual military occupational specialty. Specialists in bulk fuel, water purification, combat engineering, electrical work and heavy equipment operation combined skills and held training sessions to bring the rudimentary knowledge of their jobs to the other Marines in the detachment. “It makes us more well-rounded, especially when we go out on ship. If we do get called up for a sweeping mission, or something along those lines, whoever’s there will be able to handle it,” said Cpl. David Lamb, a combat engineer with CLB-26. “It makes our capabilities that much better.” The cross-training allows the detachment to be vastly more effective than its numbers would suggest. The section is comprised of slightly more than 30 Marines, who will likely be spread out among ships or continents during the deployment. Teaching the Marines the basic skills necessary to do each other’s jobs allows the detachment to function and offer the ground-level functions of every specialty no matter which Marines are present on the scene.

“It enables us to accomplish all of our MOS-specific missions, even if those Marines are not present,” said Lance Cpl. Hunter Eden, a heavy equipment operator. The cross-training allows the detachment to be a much larger asset in accomplishing the MEU’s mission. “We’ve got resources to train each other, and we try to, so we’re proficient across the whole field,” said Eden. Some of the skill sets the Marines practiced so far include the basics of generator operation, fuel distribution, operating the tactical water purification system, and beginning their certification for operating some of the heavy machinery for setting up forward bases. Marines are also learning the fundamentals of combat engineering, from safety procedures to assembling explosives, as well as their measurements and intended uses. “It’s interesting, being in our detachment, given what a wide variety of MOSs there are there. I’m learning a lot about other people’s MOSs I never cared about before because I was focusing on one job. This is how unique a CLB on a MEU can be,” said Lamb. The Marines of the engineering detachment have much yet to learn, but they’re already well on their way to becoming one of the most versatile elements of the already flexible logistics combat element. With training on subjects like basic demolitions and urban breaching still to come, their knowledge base is sure to expand, enabling the MEU to accomplish its worldwide mission more effectively. “It’s just giving people the confidence in it before they do it in a real situation,” said Lamb.

he Marine Corps is full of extraordinary people who exemplify total and complete dedication to their Corps and country on a daily basis. Whether in the office or on the range, Marines are dedicated to the job at hand. As the sun set on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday night, more than 10 intramural softball teams made their way toward Harry Agganis Field behind the Goettge Memorial Fieldhouse. Carrying bats, gloves, cleats and plenty of snacks, they settled onto the newly remodeled field for the fifth Annual Midnight Madness softball tournament. The double-elimination tournament began at 6 p.m. Friday evening and lasted until noon Saturday. With teams taking the field every hour for a standard seven-inning game, staying alert and active was no easy feat. “The first couple of games were really exciting,” said Jennifer Harrell, head coach of the team Stacked, a women’s intramural

team who was a last-minute addition to the tournament bracket. “They’re highly competitive, but still fun. After you reach a certain point, though, everybody starts to feel a little silly.” Of course, silliness only adds to the level of fun the tournament offers. For last minute addition Stacked, the tournament was an opportunity to play in a military-style setting with friends from home, instead of traveling a long ways to partake in an off-base tournament. The women’s intramural team approached intramural sports coordinator Antonio Warner after plans to attend a Raleigh-area tournament fell through and left them searching for a way to use the funds they already allocated for the trip. “I asked Antonio if we could play, and he put us on the waiting list in case any teams dropped off the bracket at the last minute,” said Harrell. “He was really understanding about us wanting to take part in the tournament, though, and gave us a great experience to play with the men’s teams from base.” “They called me and said they SEE SOFTBALL 7B

King mackerel find shore

After several years of scarce king mackerel catches along the Crystal Coast, I am more than happy to report the king mackerel returned. While the mackerel bite was almost nonexistent over the last few years, last weekend signaled a turning point for the rulers of the mackerel world. Over the weekend the king mackerel catch was strong up and down the North Carolina coastline. The west side of the Beaufort Inlet and the shipping channel were full of king mackerel. The east side of Beaufort and the Cape Lookout shoals’ anglers reported strong catches of king mackerel Saturday. Bogue Inlet and the shoreline were full of menhaden, which brought more king mackerel to the shore. Even the 45-minute rock and the offshore Southeast Bottoms saw king mackerel being reeled into boats.

While the menhaden schools helped breathe life into the struggling king mackerel catches, they also drew Spanish mackerel and bluefish to the shore. Not only were boaters cashing in on the fishing fun, shoreline anglers and pier fishermen filled their coolers to the brim. Oceanana Pier saw a number of runoff catches snagged on Gotcha! plugs last week. Monday morning Bogue Pier already accounted for two king mackerel catches. The two catches were a welcome start to the pier’s annual king mackerel tournament. The larger of the two mackerel weighed 33 pounds. The Topsail piers are thriving from the king mackerel bite as well. Seaview and Surf City piers both saw king mackerel caught between the 17 and 37-pound range. Again, I cannot stress how important the live bait is to the revived king mackerel bite. October is often a hot and aggressive kind mackerel month, but without bait anglers are left high and dry. Aside from the king mackerel run, the mullet and anchovies are still biting lines as quickly as anglers can put them in the water. Their numbers

we in Biblical proportions, turning the surf and inlet into a river of brown and being eaten from below by Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bluefish, trout, flounder and drum. Interestingly, the morning bite was centered around sunrise and slowed noticeably after. The week was one of spectacular sunrises and coincidental predatory feeding. Very exciting indeed. Other fall visitors are also now entering the scene. Spots were caught up on the piers, especially Oceanana, and around the Beaufort draw Bridge and Gallant’s Channel. Like the king mackerel, the spots were disappointing in their numbers the last several years. Now they are back and searching for live bait to eat. I would suggest using live blood worms or a realistic blood worm substitute. Let’s not forget the trout. After encouraging catches of trout during the summer, speckled trout are showing up in the usual marsh areas like Haystacks, the Newport River, North River, along the Neuse including around Oriental and many locations. From around the Emerald Isle Bridge, behind Bear Island and down to the New River, speckled trout are making their presence known. Surf fishermen were

also picking up speckled trout along the Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach surf, including by the hotel formerly known as the Sheraton. Many of the trout are in the two to four-pound range. Remember, the N.C. regulations are four trout per day and a minimum length of 14-inches. If it’s flounder you are looking for there are still citation fish caught with finger mullet at the port wall. The many caught in the surf are all throwbacks, although some keepers up to four pounds were weighed in at Bogue Pier. The piers and surf are also producing some big pompano, some in the two to threepound range. Finally, the wahoo bite is still worth going out for. Fish are not as concentrated as they were a few weeks ago, but they are scattered from the Rise and Swansboro Hole to the Big Rock and inshore to the 90-foot drop. Anglers are still catching wahoo as the season begins to slow down, but remember the wahoo bite is dependent, like everything else, on the presence of bait in our local waters.

U.S. chokes at Ryder Cup

I’m a bad sports fan. It takes a lot to get me to watch something on television. If I can’t be there in person, I really don’t have the drive to watch a game on TV. I’ll watch soccer; sometimes I can watch tennis. Other than that, I stay away from televised sports. So you know something big has to happen in order for me to get online to find a live-stream sporting event to watch – especially when the event is golf. While I’m not a huge fan of watching sports on TV or online, I do admit the game of golf is somewhat fascinating to me. While I look at a football field and see a bunch of men in spandex running around, I see golf as a true test of skill. No, it’s not the best example of athletic ability. There are no bones to be broken, no extra bodies to crash into, and no ball to kick or throw. However, if you want to test your hand-eye coordination, aim and accuracy, and ability to overcome nerves, go play a round. You can improve your hand-eye coordination, and your aim will get better with time, but nerves are a different story. Nerves can cost you the game. Some of America’s best golfers proved it true last weekend when they fell to Europe in the Ryder Cup after a two-day lead over the Europeans. Going into the third and final day of the Ryder Cup, the U.S.

team led Europe enough points to sway the game in their favor. The European team was faced with the daunting task of winning eight of the 12 single matches in order to turn the odds in their favor. Somehow, they did exactly that. The European team seized the Ryder Cup, leaving many golf fans awestruck at their sweeping comeback, and wondering whether the Europeans played a game worthy of winning, or if the American team simply choked and fell prey to their own nerves. I think nerves played a major factor in the American loss. As an athlete, I understand having an off– day, but I also understand most bad days are worsened by fear of everyone knowing how bad the day is. It’s one thing to have a bad day at practice. It’s another to have a bad day with hundreds of people watching, your teammates depending on you, and pressure mounting with every hole. It’s rare for an athlete to let his nerves get the best of him for half a game before he makes a marvelous comeback, overcoming his anxiety and roaring to success. It’s a much more common story to hear about an athlete who surged forward from last place. Those athletes have nothing to lose. The athletes in the front, however, have more to lose then gain, and it’s easy for nerves to take control without permission. When they do, it’s almost always lethal to the game. The American team proved it at the Ryder Cup last weekend. Regardless of whether the Americans were just having a bad day or the Europeans were playing a game nobody could match, nerves played a visible factor in the Ryder Cup. European golfer Ian Poulter’s face was so intense every time he swung his club he looked like he

was undergoing some sort of physically excruciating torture instead of playing a round of golf. A relaxed athlete, whose nerves are not unraveling his abilities, usually has a calmer look of concentration. U.S. Ryder Cup team captain Davis Love’s nerves were visibly frayed when he made the decision to not play the team’s strongest two-man team, Phil Mickleson and Keegan Bradley, who opted to sit out because they didn’t feel physically or mentally prepared for the day. Mickleson and Bradley clearly fell prey to anxious feelings. I’m certainly not faulting them for it. If I were in their situation, I would be a walking, talking, emotional wreck with a set of golf clubs. Nobody would want me anywhere near the ball unless they wanted me to fill their golf course with hundreds of divots. I’m simply saying it’s unfortunate the team’s nerves got the best of them when they were so close to winning the cup. I hope they can redeem themselves next year. Then again, everyone’s nerves mount when they are moments away from a great victory. The question is how do we overcome them?

It may be hard to do, but athletes aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune are willing to give everything they have to learn a new sport. With a dozen teams in the American and National flag football conferences aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, athletes are filling their time off by mastering a sport new to many of them. Unlike traditional tackle football, flag football requires athletes to think rather than react, making it as much of a mental sport as a physical one. “A lot of people grow up learning to play tackle football,” said Staff Sgt. Albert Hayes, 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment. “Learning to play flag football is a new experience. It’s a whole different ball game.” Hayes, who coaches the 1/8 Marines flag football team, signed his team up after returning from deployment too late to take part in the tackle football season. The new experience, however, was a “breath of fresh air” for him and his team. “When you play tackle football, it’s fun and everybody is running off instinct,” Hayes said. “But when you play flag football and you have to think all the time, the way

our win.” Even though his team was not together until the day before their first game, Hayes said he could already see the potential within the 1/8 Marines to make the 2012 season a positive experience. “We just came off deployment, but there’s no reason we can’t compete with other teams who were able to practice together beforehand,” said Hayes. “We’re here now. I don’t see any reason we can’t make it all the way to the championships. We’re certainly off to a good start. “We’ll be working on our defense in the weeks to come, tightening it up and fixing little problems,” Hayes added. With the rest of the season before them, the only thing bothering Hayes is the number of teams signed up in the league. “Antonio (Warner) runs a great program for intramural sports,” said Hayes. “I wish I saw more people getting involved in the athletic events the base offers. It’s a very under-utilized program. I’d like to see more units getting active with each other in their free time. What better way to get involved on base, stay in shape and have fun outside of the work atmosphere?”

you play changes. “We enjoyed our first game,” Hayes continued. “I was glad to get out and see not all the guys playing were pretending to be professional football players. They were there to have fun. It was a different atmosphere than what I’m used to.” Hayes, who played and coached in the intramural tackle football league in seasons past, admitted it was harder than expected to make the transition to flag football. “Your first instinct is always to tackle. You can’t do it,” said Hayes. “You can’t physically block anybody, so you have to be aware of your body constantly.” To help his teammates grow comfortable with the rules of flag football, Hayes used a variety of methods to help teach the rules and keep his Marines aware of the differences. Creating stand-off distance helped the 1/8 Marines as they prepared for the first game against LSSS Thursday. Knowing how to position their bodies and move to keep from breaking any of the flag football rules, 1/8 Marines’ awareness of their opponents’ next move helped pave the way to victory. “It was a lot of fun to play (LSSS),” said Hayes. “They were a really great team and played a good game. They made us work for

Athletes stir up dust in cross country JESSIE HEATH Sports editor


n her 15 years as a Cross Country coach, Beth Knappenberger never stopped cheering on her athletes. As their biggest fan, Knappenberger, armed with a cow bell and plenty of encouraging words, finds her home along every course the Lejeune High School Cross Country team runs to offer praise and encouragement to athletes as they pass. The head coach of the men’s and women’s cross country teams at LHS aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune knows what it takes to endure the long distances student athletes face at cross country meets. Before coaching, she ran cross country and track. Since taking the job at LHS, her main focus turned to helping young athletes mentally and physically prepare for the challenge of the course. “Every time we go to a meet, I position myself at the three-mile mark,” said Knappenberger. “When they pass me the first time on a two-loop course, they know they are half-way

done. When they pass me the second time, it’s time to give a kick to the finish line. “I stay consistent at the meets so they know when they need to give themselves the extra kick to get to the finish line,” Knappenberger added. “They’re used to seeing me strategically place myself along the course.” With Knappenberger and assistant coach Linda Taffi cheering and offering guidance, the LHS mens’ and womens’ cross country teams took part in their first and only home meet of the season Sept. 26 aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. For a team used to competing at away meets, the rare experience of home-turf advantage was something not to be overlooked. With their typical opponents lined up beside them at the starting line, the LHS cross country teams set their watches and eyed the race course with certainty not awarded to the visiting teams. “It’s nice to have home course advantage when you meet,” explained Knappenberger. “Our athletes know this course inside and out. They don’t have to do the course walk with the other teams, and they know exactly where to turn and the

flow of the course. They’re used to it.” While home-course advantage is a bonus for the LHS cross country teams, it certainly isn’t everything. More than anything else, they must rely on sheer willpower to carry them through the course. With a rigorous training schedule dating back to early August, the Devil Pups’ teams work hard to place in every meet. The team practices at least twice a week, using a variety of methods to mix up their running schedule. In addition to team practices, they are responsible for logging their own distance runs on the weekends and building volume to their running repertoire. Without volume they cannot hope to see improvements in their Photo by Jessie Heath personal times, making it a Lejeune High School student athletes cross the finish line after completing their crucial aspect of preparahome cross country meet aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Sept. 26. tion for every meet. “In order to be comSchool, the Devil Pups’ “These kids train in all sorts students first and foremost, petitive, they need volume,” battled an unexpected heat of weather, though, and it doesn’t stop Knappensaid Knappenberger. “If wave the day of their home they were prepared to work berger from seeing big they want to compete and meet.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. SOFTBALL FROM 1B were a women’s team who wanted to play,� explained Warner. “They said they were competitive, so I said ‘ok,’� said Warner. “We had the space.� With all their available players eager to take part in the intramural tournament, Stacked paired with athletes from other teams who weren’t competing and made a co–ed team. “With Antonio’s help, we supplemented our six females who wanted to play with five extra men,� explained Harrell. “We batted all eleven players, and had five women and five men on the field in every inning.� Determined to play competitively and enjoy their night at the ball park, Harrell said the team didn’t expect anybody to take it easy on them simply because they were women. “It does happen, sometimes, men are a little nervous to play against a woman,� said Harrell. “I get it, but we didn’t want them to go easy on us, and we ended up with some really good competition on our hands. I don’t think they expected us to do as well as we did.� Stacked played five games before falling out of the tournament after losing to 8th ESB and CLR–25. Their games began at 9 p.m. Friday night and ended at 11 a.m. Saturday morning. “We had to gel easily

as a team, because the day before the tournament, we belonged to multiple teams,� admitted Harrell. “I think we really got lucky when we learned everybody had a mutual respect for each other’s abilities. It helped us become a team a lot faster than we expected.� The experience of playing all night, surrounded by other military families on their home base gave the teammates of Stacked a unique tournament experience they never expected. “We’ve been to other tournaments, such as the Military Worlds’ down in Panama City,� explained Harrell. “It’s always nice to play at the military tournaments because there is an instant family connection – a tie that binds everyone together. But, playing on our own base with other teams all night was an even better opportunity. “Once you start playing military tournaments, I always say you’ll never go back,� Harrell added. “It’s great to play in local events. I always feel welcomed wherever I play, but there’s something unique about knowing everybody else is dealing with or dealt with the same life struggles you face on a daily basis.� As night fell and exhaustion overtook the athletes on the field, games became funnier without any real reason. “There comes a

certain point where everyone is slap–happy about playing another game of softball,� said Harrell. “We started Friday night and didn’t stop until Saturday morning. By the time the tournament ended, we were so tired we were ere giddy about everything.� hing.� While Stacked ran out of gas after five games, the winner, 2/8 Marines, gave it their all until the final call was made, winning them the tournament. 2/8 Marines’ team won an unblemished five-game streak during the over-night tournament, and walked away victorious after winning 19-8 over 2nd AAV. As the tournament drew to a close and families prepared to leave, Warner marked down another successful tournament in his books. “We had a few stops along the way while we sorted out which teams were going to be able to play, but I think everybody had a good time,� said Warner. “It’s the fifth year we’ve done this, and it always gets a good response.� “It gets a good response because people love softball,� Harrell added. “It’s in your blood. Most of us were playing when we were young and want to keep on. After all, where else can you act like a

Base hosts national cycling ride LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is full of running, biking and hiking trails throughout the installation providing base patrons a vast array of outdoor activities. Down East Cyclists, a local mountain biking club, and Marine Corps Community Services – Outdoor Adventures are co-sponsoring a bike ride through one of these trails for national Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day Oct. 6. Down East Cyclists consists of approximately 260 members primarily from the Jacksonville area who share a passion for biking. Service members and civilians alike form the members of the club. The club hosts numerous events to promote cycling in the eastern North Carolina area. The trail for this specific event is approximately four miles in length and was built by the cycling club, which was completed in April this year. “We got permission to build a trail in May 2011 and began work on it as a club by December,” said Jeff LeBlanc, a mountain biking coordinator with the club. “We built it by ourselves, and the only electric tools we used were weed whackers.” Last year’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day ride was in Wilmington, N.C., but the club decided to have this year’s event aboard the base to attract more service members. “This year, the emphasis is on military families,” said Diane LeBlanc, president of Down East Cyclists. “They’re really trying to promote mountain biking among military families and raise awareness about these families to other people involved in cycling.” The ride is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. and last through 2 p.m. Different riding leaders will guide children and parents of all biking abilities, so everyone can have an enjoyable experience. The event is free for anyone participating. The only requirements are everyone must bring their own bike and helmet. “Training wheels will not work in these trails,” said Jeff LeBlanc. “Riding through them is not the same as riding on the road. For this reason, we require everyone to be able to ride on two wheels.” Operation Compassion, an organization dedicated to supporting military families, donated two mountain bikes to be raffled off at the event. Every young boy and girl will receive one ticket, and a winner will be announced after the ride. There will also be food and beverages provided for patrons. An obstacle course will be set up for children to ride through as well. The meeting place for the day of the ride is at the 2nd Medical Battalion’s Preventative Medicine Unit building on Holcomb Boulevard before the intersection at Old Sawmill Road. “Our plan is to promote cycling with the military families here on base,” said Diane. “It’s nice to have an activity or hobby that can be enjoyed wherever the Marine Corps may take someone.” For more information about the mountain bike ride, contact Jeff or Diane LeBlanc at dleblanc@nccumc. org or

Lance Cpl. Tyler Stoneman, a fireteam leader with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, maneuvers toward a trench during a training exercise as part of the Forge Academy oboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. The Forge Academy is an approximately four-week long course designed to improve the proficiency of 1st Bn., 6th Marines’ fireteam leaders. CPL. TOMMY BELLEGARDE 2nd Marine Division

The fireteam is the smallest unit in the infantry of the Marine Corps. Consisting of just four Marines, the fireteam’s small size influences infantry tactics, and plays a major role in the flexibility and maneuverability of a squad. It is commanded by a fireteam leader, usually a corporal or senior lance corporal, whose competence in small-unit infantry tactics and leadership is imperative for the team’s proficiency. First Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division helps develop its fireteam leaders by providing an approximately four-week long course known as the Forge Academy. Most recently, fireteam leaders from each of the battalion’s line companies graduated from the Forge Academy Sept. 21 after two weeks each of classroom and field training aboard Camp Lejeune. “The fireteam leader is the first in the chain of command; they are the only leaders who lead Marines not in leadership positions,” said Capt. Paul Tremblay, the 1st Bn., 6th Marines operations officer and head instructor for the Forge Academy. “Without a formal school designed for fireteam leaders, a lot of battalions in the Marine Corps are starting to run in-house courses.” The course covers all aspects of commanding a fireteam explained Sgt. Paul Chambers, the 1st Bn., 6th Marines

instructor development specialist. However, regardless of whether a student is new at being a fireteam leader or served as one in combat, all students can learn new things and sharpen the skills they already possess. “This course is broken down, piece by piece, showing the Marines all the facets of being a fireteam leader,” said Chambers. “There are some Marines who were fireteam leaders on deployment, and it still enables them to hone those skills, learn back from the basics all the way up, and maybe pick up some things they didn’t learn on deployment.” Throughout the course, the students were educated on troop welfare, the psychological and physiological effects of combat, infantry tactics and the responsibilities of being a fireteam leader. The students were challenged to be open-minded, creative, and to look at the big picture of any given situation. “Captain Tremblay talked about seeing things from other perspectives, emphasizing whenever we’re in any combat situation we need to try and assess it from as many different angles as possible so we can get a better idea of what is happening and how to respond to it,” said Lance Cpl. Eric McMullen, a fireteam leader with 1st Bn., 6th Marines. “The more information you have, the better plan you can conceive in a short amount of time.” The Marines applied these skills

when placed in simulated combat scenarios based on real-life and hypothetical instances where a fireteam leader must quickly make potentially-critical tactical decisions. “You force the Marine into making a decision similar to what a fireteam leader has to make in combat, kind of on the fly, putting stress and pressure on them, forcing them to use critical thinking,” said Chambers. “They are the leaders so they must be able to make the decision, and be cool and brave to influence its outcome.” During the final week of training the students participated in a 10-mile hike, independently established a temporary military camp, and performed firing and maneuvering exercises in full gear to simulate a combat environment. There were also periods of heavy rain adding further stress to the exercise. Now graduated, the more junior fireteam leaders of 1st Bn., 6th Marines have an educational background they can use to help lead their fireteams. Likewise, the more experienced students have an additional tool at their disposal for having participated in the academy. “We want the Marines to sustain themselves, endure and persevere like a team leader needs to do,” said Chambers. “It’s tested them mentally and physically; it brings some of those new at this position up to speed, and it elevates those who already have experience up to a higher level.”

Sergeant Major holds Marines to highest standards LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Carrying the title of Marine brings great responsibility. It means working, living, eating, behaving and even dressing in a different way than people in other services and occupations. The Marine Corps enforces a dress code which exemplifies professionalism both on and off duty. Sgt. Maj. Ernest K. Hoopii, sergeant major of Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, wants to remind Marines aboard the installation to make sure they are in keeping with the regulations concerning appropriate civilian attire. “Inappropriate clothing is described as revealing clothing exposing midriff, the buttocks, excessive chest or cleavage, or items designed to be worn as undergarments,” said Hoopii. “When wearing civilian trousers, a belt must also be worn unless there are no belt loops, and trousers will be worn at the waist with no visible undergarments. Basically, pants will not sag, because no one wants to see someone else’s underwear.” The only time any undergarment should be visible is when an undershirt is exposed by the outer shirt and seen around the collar. In addition to clothing not being revealing, clothing must be appropriate for the occasion. “If you’re going to the gym, wearing gym apparel is obviously okay,” said Hoopii. “However, don’t go to our exchange, commissary or any other building dressed in a tanktop and basketball shorts.”

Basketball shorts or other athletic apparel, bikinis and swimming trunks are examples of clothing appropriate for their designated recreational activities, but not authorized to be worn around the installation. Service members are required to wear the appropriate attire on and off base, and their dependents and guests are required to uphold the order while staying aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. “Marines live to a higher standard,” said Hoopii. “We represent all things that are good, and we are expected to act with the utmost professionalism both on the job and off.” Marines, sailors and their dependents or guests who decide to wear inappropriate attire into one of the buildings aboard the installation will be required to leave the building. Marines can be reported to their respective commands if they do not leave willingly. Hoopii said the dress code is becoming a noticeable issue, as many of the service members and their families aboard the installation don’t always follow the dress code. “(Service members), their dependents and their guest are either not aware of the rules and regulations, feel exempt from them, or they just flat out disregard them,” Hoopii said. “We, as Marines, are a special branch (of service). How we look is how we act, and how we are to act is to be nothing short of proud, conservative professionals.” The dress code for Marines and dependents aboard MCB Camp Lejeune can be referenced under Marine Corps Order P1020.34G and Base Order 1020.8X.

When not in uniform, almost all Marines know upholding Marine Corps standards includes appropriate attire. Marines of all ranks should be aware of appropriate attire for any function and be prepared to put their best foot forward whether on the battle field or out on the town.

Making cents of deployment savings CPL. ANTHONY J. KIRBY Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


rofitable knowledge was passed at Midway Park Sept. 19 to help families save a lot of money as their spouses deploy. Lewis Summerville, financial specialist, held a Beyond the Brief class to teach the attendees about managing their money. The class is approximately two hours of detailed information to help eligible families understand the extra money that will be included into the budget from their deploying spouse and assist them in developing a plan to save money. “This budget plan will allow you to input what you were getting before (your spouse) left (for deployment) and then calculate all of the (income and deductions) in addition to this,” says Summerville.

Just about everything is covered in this course from additional money earned while deployed, to further saving by cutting or eliminating excessive spending. It provides budgeting, credit report and savings information along with a financial worksheet, financial planning checklist, credit report info sheet and the book “A Salute to Smart Investing.” The course is called Beyond the Brief because it takes place after the units’ initial family predeployment brief. The Marine Corps is a young service and has many young families without much experience managing money. This class is extremely beneficial because it covers things that may have been missed in the pre-deployment brief, says Summerville. Photo by Cpl. Anthony J. Kirby

Epicures refine tailgating LANCE CPL. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Simply crafted foods married with competitive sporting events are the ingredients for an occasion part of an American tradition called tailgating, which dates back as far as the late 1800s. Cooks and chefs from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and other Marine Corps installations redefined the delectable tastes offered at ordinary tailgates when they presented their dishes during the Culinary Team of the Quarter cooking competition hosted at the Wallace Creek Mess Hall recently. Stacey Brannon and Gloria R. Crawford, cooks with Mess Hall 455, managed to stir up a victory with their palatable flavors. They started with a stuffed jalapeno, glazed-raspberry appetizer, followed by a marinated flank steak with four cheese baked macaroni and lemon-roasted asparagus entrée. Judges ended the course teasing their sweet tooth with a banana pud-

ding topped with roasted coconut and chocolate drizzle. The cooks left their signatures on taste buds of many. Mess Hall 128 took second place, Wallace Creek Mess hall took third followed by Mess Hall 411 in fourth. “The event tested the culinary skills of the civilian and military cooks, and it created an atmosphere where they could compete,” said Charles E. Cone, the Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune food service officer. “They could take the food knowledge they learn here and use it to improve food for the Marines.” Fifteen teams of two cooks entered the competition and four of those teams made the preliminary qualifications moving them on to the heated showdown. Contestants were tested on tailgate history, basic food-service knowledge and food safety. Sharp minds were just as important at sharp knives. Honing in on a great taste was the key to Brannon and Crawford’s victory. “We had a couple of dry runs,” said SEE TAILGATING 3C

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is home to more than just the Marines and sailors stationed there. The installation is also home to many threatened and endangered species. American alligators bask near its wetlands, while its beaches are home to loggerhead turtles, and Venus flytraps hide in its grasses. Poaching or hunting endangered creatures and plants carries varying fines, depending on the species and other circumstances. Several members of the MCB Camp Lejeune community were fined or brought to trial for hunting and poaching threatened or endangered species throughout the area. Most notable among these are American alligators and Venus flytraps. “I’ve been hunting here since ’79,” said Patrick O’Neal, a conservation law enforcement officer aboard the base. “Before (the recent alligator slayings,) I had not seen a single case.” Most recently, a Marine with II Marine Expeditionary Force was charged with unlawfully taking a protected species and possessing an alligator. In August, two Lance Corporals were cited with similar offences, according to Jacksonville Daily News. O’Neal credits the recent spike to TV shows like “Swamp People” that depict alligator hunting in regions where it is legal, and taped during alligator-hunting season. “Before (the TV show,) the biggest problem we had was people trying to feed them,” said O’Neal. American alligators faced extinction approximately 40 years ago. Through enforcement of The Endangered Species Act, they began to reappear and are now listed as threatened. While people endanger the return of alligators, the reptiles can still be dangerous to humans. Paul Boniface, the chief conservation law enforcement officer aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, cautions people to keep their distance from the alligators. While the creatures are typically slow on land, they can be very quick

for short bursts of time. Boniface said alligators are more afraid of people than people are of them, however, people should still use common sense when faced with an alligator. “Leave it alone, don’t feed it,” said Boniface. “You don’t want the alligator to associate people with food.” Another vulnerable carnivore is not an animal but a plant. The Venus flytrap is the object of much curiosity since its discovery. “There are very few places where Venus flytraps grow naturally,” said Boniface. MCB Camp Lejeune is one of the places the plant grows. In the areas on the base where the rare plants grow bald patches of grass betray where the plant was poached. While the idea of a carnivorous plant can be intimidating, Venus flytraps are small and hide in the grass. The plant is abundant from commercial sources and can be cultivated in greenhouses, but their numbers have dwindled in nature. Another animal in danger is the loggerhead sea turtle. The turtles do not spend all of their lives on the base, but many are born on its beaches and return to nest. The turtles are exposed to a lot of danger in their youth and can be confused by artificial lights. Patrons of Onslow Beach are not allowed to drive on the areas they inhabit during nesting times to prevent harming their habitats. Also, there are no artificial white lights allowed on the beach during that time. The information is explained to everyone who receives beach passes by the Conservation Law Enforcement Office. While these species are threatened or endangered, there is hope for their recovery. Boniface cites the history of the wild turkey when speaking of endangered animals. The amount of wild turkeys in the United States increased exponentially. According to the National Wild Turkey Federation the birds’ numbers were as low as 30,000 during the great depression and are now more than 7 million. “You have to protect (threatened species) so the next generation can experience them,” said Boniface.

Chaplain retires to continue OFF-LIMITS ESTABLISHMENTS service through ministry CPL. TIMOTHY SOLANO 2nd Marine Division

Navy Capt. Steven D. Brown, 2nd Marine Division Chaplain, retired from 27 years of active-duty service at the Camp Lejeune Protestant Chapel Sept. 28. Through an extensive military career, 31 years of marriage, being a parent to five children, and more than 30 years devoted to learning and spreading Baptist ministry, Brown is a man very familiar with the meaning of service. “Since I was a boy I always wanted to serve my country,” said Brown. “I had an obligation to serve my country, but at the same time I also knew God was calling me into some kind of full-time vocational ministry.” Brown’s calling to service led him to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in the spring of 1980. After five years as an enlisted Marine and Cobra helicopter mechanic, Brown left the reserves to serve as associate pastor for Grace Baptist Church in Panama City, Fla. It was his father-inlaw, a reserve Navy Chaplain himself, who cemented the idea within Brown to pursue his passion to serve in both capacities, though this time simultaneously. “I thought for the longest time these two callings were separate and could never intersect,” said Brown, “but when I learned more about the role of a military chaplain I knew it was what I should do.” Brown then commissioned and joined the Navy Chaplain Corps in 1987, resuming a military career that would, over time, send Brown to 35 countries spread across five continents to share his ministry with service members stationed and deployed to locations worldwide. “One of the most unique challenges to being a military chaplain is we don’t

typically pastor to a church,” said Brown. “Operational ministry often calls us to visit the men and women at the tip of the spear, so your worship service might be in a beautiful chapel like the one here on base, but it might also be from the hood of a HMMWV or in the back of a (mine-resistant ambush protected vehicle) MRAP.” Retiring from a unit that was actively engaged in conflict in Afghanistan, Brown cited his successes as Division chaplain in large part due to the Division’s leaders. “I had great support from Maj. Gen. Toolan and Brig. Gen. Lukeman,” he said. “They love their Marines and they know meeting the spiritual needs of their Marines is important. They really empowered our chaplains to do so. I just wish I could spend more time with each of the chaplains in the Division.” Throughout several deployments, three of which were in combat zones, Brown pushed to outlying locations to minister to Marines and sailors in need of spiritual counsel and returned home safely to continue his ongoing mission. “I always knew the same God who called me would grant me his grace, and protect and empower me to take care of the men and women who were entrusted to my care,” said Brown. “And if God is who he says he is, then the only right response is for me to trust him.” Brown will now go on to serve as the president and endorser for Associated Gospel Churches, which currently endorses more than 120 active-duty and reserve military chaplains. “In God’s providence, this is the time for me to exit the military and continue to invest in the military by preparing the future generation of chaplains who are going to do what I was blessed to do for the last 27 years,” he said.

Traffic shift taking place this weekend CPL. DAMANY S. COLEMAN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

With the new base entry road still in the works, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune personnel will soon notice commuting may get a little more difficult before it gets any better. To make way for this project, a traffic shift is taking affect this weekend. “In the future, there’s going to be a new base entry road,” said Lt. j.g. Patrick Durnan, project engineer with Office in Charge of Construction, Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “Our job is to prepare for it by widening the road. During the

widening, we can’t close the length of road, so we’re shifting traffic onto the new road recently built.” Drivers will see a change in location of the road, but it will still have the same amount of lanes. “It’s going to be a little more congested on Louis Road because you’re not going to be able to take a left onto Michael Road from Sneads Ferry Road,” said Durnan. “We’re advising drivers coming northbound on Sneads Ferry Road to take Louis Road to Birch Street, or go down Holcomb instead if you need to get to Michael Road.” Durnan said they’re going to try and keep the left turning lane coming

from Michael road open as well. The road shift will begin this weekend, Oct. 7 and will remain until next Spring. “The planned shift is Sunday night, but by Tuesday, the shift should be complete,” said Durnan. “By the time Marines come back to work, they’ll experience the new traffic plan. There will be signs on Sneads Ferry Road this week so drivers going in both directions know. The hiccups will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday when drivers are still learning what they can and cannot do in the area.” Durnan said drivers can expect delays, and if they can avoid the area altogether, do so.

To make way for the new entry gate and road, a portion of Sneads Ferry Road and Michael Road will be closed and traffic will be shifted to a recently built road in the vicinity. This illustration shows how drivers can no longer make a left turn leaving Michael Road onto Sneads Ferry Road. The road immediately in front of Building 905 is been closed. TAILGATING FROM 2C Brannon. “We let the workers at the mess hall sample our food, and we got it down to a science. This competition gave us the opportunity to showcase our skills and challenge us to get outside of our box.” Limited time caught many of the contestants off guard who were allotted four hours to prepare their dishes. “I learned time goes by so fast,” said Brannon and Crawford perfectly in sync with widened eyes. “When you’re not under the gun and there’s no pressure it seems like you have all the time in the world,” continued Crawford. “We used our four hours down to the last second.” Hours in the kitchen were spent creating a close to perfect

meal for the judges, but spectators would not be left behind. After the culinary teams presented their dishes, guests were able to judge the foods themselves and cast in a vote for the people’s choice award. “There’s some real talent in here,” said Barry Lee, district manager of Sodexo. “The quality of the presentation and ambiance is amazing. This provides a little bit of levity to the day-to-day routine. It allows cooks to get a creative break. This is the one time where they can have at it.” These cooks prevailed as culinary artisans and proved their ability to create an upscale tailgating experience tasteful to all.

Dueling Ferris wheels mark the new landscape of the Onslow County Fairgrounds during the opening night of the 58th annual Onslow County Fair in Jacksonville, N.C., Oct. 1.

Service members join locals for week of excitement, fun AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

Boredom, pack your bags. There’s a “fair” chance for fun in the forecast. The 58th annual Onslow County Fair will keep excitement contained within the city limits this week as more than 25,000 visitors walk the fairgrounds by the American Legion Building in Jacksonville, N.C. “It’s just a good night out with the family,” said Capt. Samuel Gray, who attended opening night. Hundreds of service members and their families joined local citizens for the first evening of festivities, and thousands more are expected to take advantage of the 30 carnival rides, games, live entertainment and even a small nightly circus act performed two times per night. Dueling Ferris wheels and death-defying feats are the major changes on the agenda for an aging celebration keeping up with the times. The human cannonball, known as the “Italian Rocket,” wowed guests with his first performance as he shot out of a special

cannon and propelled at speeds up to 70 miles per hour landing on a giant air bag. “(The fair) is full of fun and excitement to share with the kids,” Gunnery Sgt. Rob Watts explained after watching the astonishing act. The annual celebration doesn’t just cater to thrill-seekers. It also draws cooks, artists and the agriculturally savvy. Local businesses, clubs and associations lined the inside of the American Legion Building with booths and displays summing up their recent activities. Homemade goodies from cakes and pies to jellies and jams filled the room with the sweet smell of the South. “I’ve got more blue ribbons than I know what to do with,” exclaimed Kathy Cook, an Onslow Coumty native. “I don’t need a ribbon to keep cooking.” The fair continues its run through Oct. 6, operating from 4 to 11 p.m. daily. Gates will open at noon Sunday. Admission to the fair is $5 and $15 for an all-day stamp for rides. Parking is provided for free. Photo by Amy Binkley

‘Odd Life’ inspires, enchants in whimsical fable Now playing at Camp Lejeune “THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN” (PG-13) “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is a comedic fantasy about a magical boy. A happily married couple realizes their dreams for a child comes true with the mysterious appearance of the young Timothy Green. Jennifer Garner (“Arthur,” “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past”) and Joel Edgerton (“Warrior,” “Animal Kingdom”) play Cindy and Jim Green, who can’t wait to start a family. However, they can only dream about what their child would be like. After they learn they cannot have any children, they bury their dream in a box in their backyard, holding all their wishes for a baby, having no idea it will suddenly produce a little boy. C.J. Adams (“Dan in Real Life”) plays the sweet 10-year-old Timothy, who mysteriously appears on the couple’s doorstep, claiming them as his own parents. Cindy, Jim and their small town soon learn sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts. Co-starring are Rosemarie DeWitt (“The Watch”) as Brenda Best, Dianne Wiest (“Dan in Real Life”) as Ms. Crudstaff, Ron Livingston (“Going the Distance”) as Franklin Crudstaff, M.

Emmet Walsh (“The Assignment”) as Uncle Bob, and David Morse (“The Collaborator”) as James Green Sr. Director and writer Pete Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”) brings enchantment to the big screen with this inspiring, magical story. “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is a mushy family fairy tale that is at times truly moving. The fable is mixed with lots of humor and drama, and is a delightful whimsical film. Now playing at Jacksonville “TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE” (PG-13) “Trouble with the Curve” is a family sports drama about a baseball scout in his twilight years. Clint Eastwood (“Gran Torino,” “Million Dollar Baby”) stars as Gus Lobel, who is one of the best scouts in baseball for decades. The legendary baseball scout can tell a pitch just by the crack of a bat, however, as much as he tries to hide it, age is catching up with him. Refusing to be benched for what could be the end of his career, the ailing baseball scout gets one last assignment to prove his worth to the organization. Amy Adams (“The Fighter,” “Doubt”) plays his workaholic daughter Mickey, an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm. Mickey was never very

But when Gus’s career is in jeopardy, Mickey, against her better judgment, decides to come along for Gus’s final recruiting trip to North Carolina, even risking her own career goals to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveries about the past and the present that could also bring change for the future.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month begins boldly AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

Combat isn’t reserved for the battlefield, and the blood of wounded warriors isn’t always shed on foreign soil. “An abused woman’s experience is similar to a service member’s,� Sgt. Michael Coker carefully explained to his rapt audience. “They’re always combat ready, they suppress their anger, and they receive less support than most people.� Coker, who served 20 years as a police officer with the Portsmouth, Va., Police Department, took the lead as guest speaker for scores of social services professionals, command leaders, and members of base and civilian police forces who came together at the annual Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness Conference at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Oct. 1. “We have it on base every year,� said Cyndi Schachter, who attended the event with other members of Onslow County Department of Social Services. “It helps kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month.� Advocates of abuse victims celebrate the 25th anniversary of Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October and continue to spotlight the atrocities of the crimes cloaked in silence. “Silence hides violence,� Marilyn Nakamura, Marine Corps Family Services New River, recited. “Knowledge is power. We need people to know the warning signs. If people don’t know, the ones who need help won’t get it.� Coker spoke to the crowded room with a riveting passion about a wide array of subjects including the four different types of abuse, critical needs of victims and the most obvious question – why do they stay in abusive relationships? “The second you come off judgmental, they’ll stop talking to you,� he told the crowd. “It kills all communication. Remember, it’s not against the law to stay. It’s against the law to abuse.� While the explanations for victims’ behaviors are numerous, Coker pointed out the number one reason they continue to stay in abusive relationships is a basic human emotion – fear. “When you’re immobilized by fear, it’s hard to move,� he said. He broke down the categories of

abuse and reminded the professionals in the room of the importance of knowing a solid definition of domestic violence. According to Coker, domestic violence is a pattern of physically, sexually, emotionally and psychologically abusive behaviors used by an individual to assert power or maintain control over another individual in the context of an intimate or family relationship. “When you go to court (to represent the victim), you have to appear credible,â€? he stated. “A good attorney will ask you what domestic violence is, and you better be ready. Come in with your (information) together. Know your case and know your victims.â€? He emphasized how a pattern may be occurring even if law enforcement or other professionals were only notified recently. “Domestic violence is rarely a one time incident,â€? Coker noted. Robin Nalls, who trains other social workers in Onslow County, agreed with the information Coker gave. “We have a mindset that says what happens at home stays at home,â€? she said. “However, domestic violence affects the entire community. It’s important for everyone to know and be able to recognize the signs.â€? The effects of the stories and actual 911 calls were visible on the faces of those in attendance, and Coker explained the critical needs all victims share. They need, want and desire safety, support, valid information, access, continuity, a voice, and, of course, justice. “Someone has to be held accountable,â€? Coker responded. He urged his audience to spend time with the victims and not to use themselves as benchmarks. Then he noted how every victim is holding on to hope, even if it’s only a sliver. “Most victims know they’re in a bad situation, but ‌ no matter how much information you give them, they won’t go until they’re ready to go,â€? he acknowledged. “Hope is the anticipation something good is going to happen, and they have it.â€? If you suspect domestic violence is occurring or are a victim call 1-800-7997233.

Mock billing to provide insight on energy use LANCE CPL. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


atrons living in military housing areas will be receiving a mock electricity bill to help them gauge and see the amount of electricity used each month. The mock billing period is from Oct. 2 through Dec. 31. The Residential Energy Conservation Program is an effort implemented by Headquarters Marine Corps, and is also


part of the Department of Defense’s goal of reducing energy consumption in the United States by 20 percent. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is the last Marine Corps installation to implement this program. “Lincoln Military Housing recognizes the importance of energy conservation to our country’s future and to our national security, and is proud to support the (RECP) initiative,” said Jarl Bliss, the president of LMH. Residents will only have to pay an electric bill every month if they have excess usage. Those who use less than the lower


utility usage buffer will receive a rebate. There is a 10 percent plus-or-minus buffer around the utility usage target to account for variables such as different family sizes and types of appliances. Heroes Manor homes are Energy Star 2 efficiency certified, according to LMH officials. With RECP, service members and their families help lessen the consumption energy and resources, and also play a part in conserving the ecosystem. According to Atlantic Marine Corps Communities, money saved will be funneled

into AMCC projects in the form of capital reinvestments such as new housing and quality-of-life programs. The program was established to encourage wiser use of utilities. Members of the community will play an important part in this green effort. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune will be conducting a town hall brief for LMH residents of Heroes Manor Nov. 1.

Chaplain’s Corner Scratching surfaces NAVY LT. CHRIS ADAMS

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

When I was a young boy I loved to color with crayons. I will never forget Mrs. Beverly, my kindergarden teacher. I am sure she shared many things I have long forgotten with the class, but I will never forget the day she showed us a new way to color. She took several brightly colored crayons and began to color in straight lines using a new color each time. Afterwards, she took a black crayon and covered over the bright lines. At first, I didn’t understand, but then she took a penny and began to scratch her name into the black crayon. I was amazed. There was her name in bright multi-colors that stood out on the paper. I was hooked. After 16 years of ministry, I used the illustration many times in counseling to teach a simple point. When dealing with an issue, what you see on the surface is usually covering something deeper. To get to the root of the problem, you need to scratch beneath the surface. King Solomon, a man described as the wisest to ever live, knew this truth personally. In Proverbs 19:22, he wrote about the feeling of insecurity and its cause, “What a man desires is unfailing love.� Beneath the signs of jealous, envy, pride and controlling behavior often lies the desire to experience true, unconditional

and unfailing love. The problem is not in the desire, but the objects we turn to in the hope of quenching the desire. Solomon’s phrase, “unfailing love,� is used thirty-two times in the Bible to describe the love available to us through a personal relationship with God. The problem is we either don’t know, or refuse, to go to the true source to find what we are looking for. Solomon learned form personal experience that no amount of sex, fame and fortune soothed his need to experience a true, lasting, unfailing love. In fact, his pursuit to color over his need resulted in greater feelings of emptiness. What is the solution to quenching our desire? Why not try to find the answer at the source? I scratched beneath the surface and found an amazing set of colors underneath. I discovered God provided both the method and the means to experience unfailing love. The Apostle Paul wrote about the method in Romans 5:8, “God has demonstrated his love for us in this, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.� The means is revealed in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever would believe in him would have everlasting life.� Are you willing to take out a penny and scratch beneath the surface in this area of your life?
