Marines and sailors assigned to 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s maritime raid force land aboard USS San Antonio while conducting maritime interdiction operations during the MEU’s group sail exercise recently. The exercise was part of the 26th MEU’s third major training evolution of their pre-deployment training program.



26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Marines and sailors with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit's maritime raid force conducted a maritime interdiction operation training exercise at sea aboard USS San Antonio recently. "This training was teaching anti-piracy techniques," said Staff Sgt. Joseph Bagorskas, lead MIO instructor with the Special Operations Training Group. "This training gives them another tool the Marines can use to accomplish their mission. Instead of just being land or air based, this helps take us back to our roots of the continental days when Marines would fight pirates on ships." "It also gives the MEU the ability to interdict suspected pirate vessels and gives them the ability to board vessels, whether they are large or small, in order to figure out what is going on and secure the ship," said Staff Sgt. Ryan J. Kuperus, lead tactics instructor with SOTG. Bagorskas brought up a more recent MIO the 15th MEU conducted dubbed Magellan Star. During

the mission, the Marines and sailors helped secure a pirate-seized German cargo ship off the coast of Yemen in 2010, safely rescuing all the hostages, and capturing and prosecuting the pirates without having to fire a single shot. This training exercise simulated the San Antonio being a non-compliant ship boarded by Marines and sailors who inserted from a CH-53E Super Stallion and two MH-60S Seahawks. Bagorskas said once the Marines boarded, they pushed through the ship and secured their main points of interest. During the mission they prosecuted a threat in the well deck, established and maintained communications, and evacuated two crew members who sustained injuries and a casualty they took while operating. Once the ship was cleared and deemed safe, they handed the ship over to the Navy ship control team. Perfecting this training gives the 26th MEU the capability to more safely and proficiently perform this operation while on its deployment if necessary. To provide guidance on how to improve, Marines and sailors from SOTG

graded the boarding and clearing of the ship. "It is important to train on exercises like this and improve their skill set because part of the MEU's area of operations is the Gulf of Aden," said Kuperus. "The area was a real hot spot of pirate activities in the last couple years." As the first major training operation these Marines and sailors conducted since completing the course for visit, board, search and seizure, Kuperus said they performed well. He said as long as they maintain brilliance in the basics and don't try anything fancy, they will continue to be successful. This exercise was part of the 26th MEU's third major training evolution of their pre-deployment training program. The 26th MEU operates continuously across the globe, providing the president and unified combatant commanders with a forward-deployed, seabased quick reaction force. The MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations. The 26th MEU is slated to deploy in 2013.

CMC, SMMC spend Christmas with Service members observe service members in Afghanistan candlelight vigil for Sandy MASTER SGT. BRENDA VARNADORE Regional Command Southwest

Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos, Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Micheal P. Barrett and the First Lady of the Marine Corps Bonnie Amos spent four days during Christmas visiting service members throughout Helmand province, Afghanistan, Dec. 23 through 26. Also on the trip was Lt. Gen. Richard Tryon, deputy commandant for Plans, Policies and Operations, and Lt. Gen. William Faulkner, deputy commandant for Installations and Logistics. The official party visited service members deployed to forward operating bases and combat outposts throughout Regional Command Southwest’s area of operations to include Leatherneck, Payne, Geronimo, Hanson, Sabit Qadam, Kajaki and Musa Qal’ah just to wish them a Merry Christmas. “Gen. George Washington chose to cross the Delaware River Dec. 25, 1776,” said Barrett. “Here we are 276 years later on Christmas still at it. I am humbled to be standing here with you.

There is nothing more honorable or noble than to serve your nation.” Mrs. Amos told the servicemembers how she was asking her husband to let her come for the last four years and her “nag campaign” finally payed off. “My Christmas dream came true,” said Mrs. Amos. “The lens I am looking through is vast. I am looking through it for each one of your loved ones back home. They would love to be able to see what I am seeing now. I wanted to tell each and every one of you Merry Christmas on behalf of your families back home. Christmas is about family, and you are all my family.” The commandant also told the service members how proud he was of the progress made in Helmand province. “I was in and out of here for four years,” said Amos to Marines outside Marjah. “(Third Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment) was in and out of here for quite some time, and it’s changing for the better. This battalion spent a lot of blood in the Marjah area. This has been your neighborhood. You can see the improvements this place SEE CHRISTMAS 4A

Hook victims, families CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO

Regional Command Southwest

Despite being focused on the realities of war, approximately 100 service members and civilians gathered aboard Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, Dec. 21 to remember the victims and families affected by the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. Deployed service members heard news of the horrific event that happened a week prior and wanted to show their support. The Sandy Hook Vigil five-kilometer walk, named after the elementary school where 20 children and six adults were killed, brought the deployed service members and civilians together. Candles were passed out and lit in remembrance of the lives lost before a moment of silence. “I thought of my younger brothers, my younger sister and cousins,” said Lance Cpl. Ravoughn Henry, supply administration clerk, Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 3, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward). “I don’t know how I would feel if I came home and something like this had happened to them.” Henry is the second oldest of five children, and he was saddened by the news of the young victims. “I’m the big brother,” said Henry. “All I SEE SANDY HOOK 4A

Secretary of Navy establishes Retiree Council The Secretary of the Navy established a Retiree Council to consider issues of significant importance to retired military personnel and their family members, to facilitate interaction between Department of the Navy leadership and the Navy and Marine Corps retired Community, and to facilitate participation in other aspects of the Retired Activities Program. The Army and Air Force have similar councils as well. The council may review the effectiveness of current programs and policies affecting retirees, and may make recommendations concerning improvements to privileges, benefits, assistance, quality of life and other matters relating to retired personnel. The service councils generally

meet during April or May. The Secretary of the Navy’s Council meets the third week in April. In the last few years the Council narrowed the submitted recommendation down in order to focus on key issues affecting retirees. This proved to be successful. The service councils all rely on retirees to submit recommendations via correspondence. Generally they prefer the recommendations to be formatted stating the problem, problem history, and recommended solution, and include a contact number. The recommendations need to be in by February 28. The local representative, Randy Reichler, will accept recommendations until January 31. You may send the recommendations via email to randy.reichler@usmc.

Education Assistance available at John A. Lejeune Education Center Our 35th Commandant Gen. James F. Amos indicated in his 2010 Commandant’s Planning Guidance and reiterated often thereafter the Marine Corps is committed to returning better citizens back to communities across our nation. Utilizing the Tuition Assistance Program to pursue formal education is one strategy to develop oneself personally and professionally. Over 6,880 Marines assigned aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune utilized the Tuition Assistance Program in 2012, whether for promotion or to enhance transition readiness. Education counselors and a variety of services are available through the John A. Lejeune Education Center. Education Assistance Branch Manager Gery Boucher will overview the services offered at the Education Center. RR – Where is the John A. Lejeune Education Center located and what are the hours of operation? GB – The address for the center is 825 Stone Street, the same building as the Staff Noncommissioned Officers Club, within a half mile of Lejeune High School, the Naval Hospital and Brewster Middle School. Our office hours are Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. through 8 p.m. and Fridays 7:30 a.m. through 6 p.m. Our facility operates on a walk-in basis and our new customer check-in protocol resulted in reduction in average wait time to approximately six minutes to see a counselor. RR – Could you please describe some of the services available at the Education Center? GB – The most commonly requested service is processing military tuition assistance, however, we offer many more services. We help service members and their families start their college process including researching colleges and universities to find the one that best suits the individual, directing customers to career interest surveys to find what field of study matches best with the individual’s interests, conducting needs assessments for math and English, providing financial aid information to include GI Bill and post 9/11 GI Bill information, and providing general information about the different types of degrees and testing available. We are a one-stop shop to

help answer questions service members and their families have regarding their post-secondary educational journey. RR – Tuition Assistance is a valuable benefit. Are there any pre-requisites for or restrictions of the program? GB – The TA process differs for Marines and sailors. A Marine’s first step is to visit the Education Assistance Branch and meet with a counselor about their academic background to determine what steps need completing in order to utilize the military tuition assistance program. It is an individualized process based on a Marine’s history and background. Sailors, on the other hand, utilize the TA program through an online portal available at The Marine Corps does limit the number of courses students can take each term because military TA is for off-duty education. We want our students to be successful, therefore limiting the number of courses ensures students learn how to manage their military responsibilities along with their college classes. RR – What types of tests are given in the testing center? GB – Our testing center offers Military Classification Testing, college exam proctoring, and DANTES Testing including college entrance exams, as well as eCLEPs and eDSSTs in partnership with the University of North Carolina in Wilmington. The testing center hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday. All exams are scheduled by appointment only by calling 451-9289 for DANTES testing or 451-3092 for military testing. Military classification tests are available to active duty and active-reserve personnel for all branches of service. Personnel are required to obtain an exam specific authorization form from Paul Parker in the John A. Lejeune Education Center testing center. In order to schedule an AFCT, DLAB, DLPT, or OPI, these forms must be completed and signed by the military personnel’s commanding officer and submitted to the testing officer located in Room 120. Military Classification Exams offered

are Armed Forces Classification Test, Defense Language Aptitude Battery, Defense Language Proficiency Test, Oral Proficiency Interview, and TABE Testing Screening Sheet for occupational lateral moves only. UNCW is expanding its National Testing Center aboard MCB Camp Lejeune and is now administering DANTES Subject Standardized Test® tests, similar to CLEP tests. The DSST gives students the opportunity to receive college credit for what they already know by earning qualifying scores on any of the 37 examinations available. For information on the Graduate Record Examination, the Graduate Management Admission Test, the Miller’s Analogies Test, the Fiscal Year 2013 DANTES Testing Schedule, and lists of eCLEPs and eDSSTs available aboard MCB Camp Lejeune or surrounding areas, please review our testing webpage at Limited proctoring services are available for authorized personnel only such as active duty and reserve military personnel, military spouses, military retirees, Department of Defense and nonappropriated fund personnel. Restrictions apply for the administration of all proctored exams. For more information regarding proctoring services contact Diane Kalsow at 451-9289. Students must obtain prior approval in-person directly from Kalsow for all proctor requests. RR – Are education counselors able to assist military dependents?

RCT-7 leadership discusses future of Helmand province CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO Regional Command Southwest

Key coalition leaders arrived at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, for the first commander’s conference under Regimental Combat Team 7 Dec. 19 to discuss the future of Helmand province. With RCT-7 overseeing an integral part in the drawdown of coalition forces in Afghanistan, Col. Austin Renforth, commanding officer, RCT-7, brought leaders from 3rd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Bn., 7th Marines, the Georgian Army, and U.S. and United Kingdom advisor teams, among others, to discuss the future of the regiment’s area of operations. “We brought everyone here today to understand where we are right now and where we are going,” said Maj. Gen. David H. Berger, commanding general, Task Force Leatherneck. During the conference, the leadership discussed their focus on advising, developing and supporting the Afghan forces, supporting the advancement of the provincial and local governments, and evolving with the progress to enable a sustainable security and stability for the future of Afghanistan. “Enabling (the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan) governance and development,” said Renforth. “At the end of the day, it is what we want and is our intent. How we do it is all these things right here.” One of the things Renforth was referring to were the advisor teams.

The advisor teams work closely with Afghan National Security Forces and the Afghan government. They embed at all levels, from the district police to the provincial government and each Afghan National Army Brigade with the 215th Corps. “The number one priority for the RCT is support for the (Security Force Advisor Team),” said Renforth. The SFATs will continue to play a key role as the ANSF assume more responsibility while coalition forces drawdown. “(SFATs) are the connecting file between our force and the force we are developing,” said Berger. “We should be trying to do everything we can to support the connecting file in whatever jobs we are in.” The conference also gave a chance to set up coalition forces for success during the transition to Afghan forces. Every section had time to discuss their objectives, update the other units on progress and field any questions. “We are talking about the next three months,” said Renforth “This is really where we set the conditions for the fighting season.” The meeting covered everything from past operations, future operations as forces prepare for the summer fighting season, and years into the future of Afghanistan. This will not be the last commander’s conference. With more responsibility being transferred from coalition forces to ANSF, meetings like this will help leave the Afghan people in control of their own destiny.

Marines bring holiday cheer to USO SGT. STEVE CUSHMAN 2nd Marine Division

With Christmas music playing throughout the building, the Marines of 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment spread holiday cheer to the local military community by cleaning and decorating the USO of North Carolina, in Jacksonville. As part of an initiative by the new battery commander, the Marines take on monthly volunteer projects to build unit camaraderie and give back to the community. “It was the perfect time of year to volunteer at the USO,” said Capt. Stephen Wodrich, the Battery C commander. “This is the first month of doing volunteer work, since I took

command. We were looking for projects to do as a battery, and they needed help cleaning and decorating. We were more than happy to come out and help.” The Marines found out about the volunteer opportunity through their family readiness officer and were able to coordinate the day with the USO. “We really appreciate the Marines coming out to help, we didn’t ask them to come,” said Deb Fisher, the USO center director. “The Marines came to the USO looking to volunteer.” SSgt. Juan Gavilanes said, “At first the Marines were a little skeptical about doing this, but we got the (staff noncommissioned officers)

and officers involved, now we’re here and the Marines are loving it. They’re looking forward to volunteering again.” Wodrich echoed him saying, “We want to come back here and make sure the USO is taken care of. My hope is the Marines continue to volunteer their time and hopefully start doing it on their own.” Many Marines don’t know about the USO in Jacksonville or what they do for the Marines aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, such as the free Christmas dinner for Marines and their families on Christmas day. For more information about this contact the USO at 455-3411.

Logistical hub for northern Helmand keeps Marines equipped CPL. ANTHONY WARD JR.

Regional Command Southwest

Marines must remain well equipped to be ready for daily operations in Afghanistan. Combat Outpost Shamsher provides Marines who operate in the districts of Now Zad, Sangin, Musa Qal’ah and Kajaki with the logistical capabilities to stay on task and accomplish the mission. “Without this particular COP we wouldn’t have a centralized point to push all of our (classes of supply) out of, such as chow,

ammo and fuels,” said 1st Lt. Jeffrey Medeiros, assistant logistics officer with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 7. “We wouldn’t be able to sustain as far north as we are in Kajaki and all the way down south to Sabit Qadam.” In addition to Marines with the company, there are many different sections and units represented at COP Shamsher who work together to ensure supplies are pushed out to the areas in need. “We’ve got two platoons of Marines from (2nd Bn., 7th Marines),”

said 1st Sgt. Joseph R. Griffin, first sergeant for the company. The COP also has Marines with Combat Logistics Battalion 2, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 1st Intelligence Battalion and explosive ordnance disposal Marines from Combat Logistics Regiment 15. Combat Outpost Shamsher is a centralized location that receives supplies frequently from CLB-2, said Medeiros. Those supplies are then pushed out by the motor transport section to all the companies in the area and support all combat operations to

the battalion’s battlespace. In addition to delivering supplies throughout northern Helmand province, Marines at COP Shamsher are able to conduct critical maintenance on tactical vehicles. “It’s also a main logistical hub for maintenance,” said Sgt. Michael Kortan, a maintenance management specialist. “All your motor transport second echelon maintenance, communications second echelon maintenance and engineering second echelon maintenance is done here.”

Having the ability to conduct a higher level of maintenance at the COP allows the battalion’s equipment to be repaired quicker. A constant flow of personnel can be seen aboard COP Shamsher, with the motor transport section running convoy operations throughout the area or supplies being dropped off via helicopter. Combat Outpost Shamsher epitomizes the meaning of teamwork with many different units combining their efforts to further the mission and keep the troops supplied.

SANDY HOOK FROM 1A could think of is how could this happen? Part of our future was lost because of this tragedy.” On a base with service members from different branches, five-kilometer races are common to boost morale and have friendly competition amongst the services. However,

this was not about finishing first. “We participated in the vigil for the tragedy,” said Sgt. Nikolaus Gugelman, warehouse chief with the squadron. “We were there to support their families and everything they go through in their time of need.” Gugelman was another service member

whose thoughts went out to the families. He kept the names of three children who were killed, Jack Pinto, 6, Daniel Barden, 7, and Dylan Hockley, 6, in his back pocket as a constant reminder during the walk. “It really hit home for me because I lost a sibling myself,” said Gugelman. “I know there are a lot of families out there, brothers and sisters, who lost one of their siblings.” He especially felt for the families who lost children at a young age and are facing the holiday season without them. “It’s a tragic event,” said Gugelman. “It’s very frustrating and hard on the families, and I can relate to it. I’m sorry they have to go through this.” The candles illuminated each participant as heavy fog set the scene for the somber mood before the walk. “The candles stood out to me,” said Henry. “We did the same thing for my aunt. We

did a candle walk for her, and I got choked up thinking about it today.” Henry felt it was important to show support to the families. Being in Afghanistan was a nonissue for him; the tragedy transcending the thousands of miles between him and the families. “We should be supporting each other all the time no matter where we are,” said Henry. Before the walk, the participants blew out their candles and picked up flashlights. Many walked in silence, others quietly talking between one another. After finishing, they shook hands and walked away. This morning was not about finishing first, the bitter cold surrounding the participants or the war in Afghanistan. This morning it was about the families and friends of 20 children and six adults who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

CHRISTMAS FROM 1A has made. We are going to leave this place under victory.” After returning from traveling throughout the battlespace Christmas Day, Amos joined two other visitors to serve dinner to the service members aboard Camp Leatherneck. Gen. John Allen, commander of International Security Assistance Force Afghanistan, and Gen. James Mattis, commander of U.S. Central Command, also flew in for a few hours to visit with RC(SW) service members.

Col. Gary F. Keim, the new commander of Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, addresses his new unit after taking command of the regiment during a ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. Keim said he appreciates the efforts of the Marines and sailors within the regiment, and is honored to accept command.

On a chilly December morning, service members with Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group bid farewell to their outgoing commanding officer and welcomed their new commander, Col. Gary F. Keim. Col. Mark R. Hollahan, the departing commanding officer, turned responsibility of the regiment over to Keim in a ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. “(Hollahan’s) performance here was nothing short of top-notch and phenomenal, and we are certainly going to miss him,” said Brig. Gen. Edward D. Banta, the commanding general of 2nd MLG. “You’re touch here was terrific. Thank you for all you’ve done.” Hollahan expressed his admiration for the hard work and dedication of the members of the regiment. “It’s been a tremendous ride with this small representation of the (more than 3,000) Marines and sailors who make up CLR-27,” Hollahan said, thanking the formations of service members assembled for the ceremony. “The

rest of them are still working.” Hollahan said he was humbled by his two and a half years with the regiment and expressed his appreciation for the service members’ constant support. He will carry on his service in Miami as the director of logistics for U.S. Southern Command. Keim, who previously commanded CLR27, recently returned from the Naval War College in Newport, R.I., where he earned his master’s degree in National Security and Strategic Studies. He said he is thankful to rejoin the regiment. “I stand here because of the effort and performance of the Marines and sailors I worked with and led up until this point,” Keim said, crediting his success to family and coworkers. “I’m very grateful, humbled and honored for this opportunity to command again.” Keim thanked his mentors for their knowledge and experience. He said he will use their legacy to help the service members under his command continue to succeed. “I just cannot wait to get after it for another couple of years,” added Keim.

Marine receives phone call from president CPL. ANTHONY WARD JR.

Regional Command Southwest


uring a bitterly cold Christmas day in Afghanistan, Sgt. Rosa M. Quintero spoke on the phone at her desk with an unlikely caller on the other end, President Barack Obama. Through hard work and dedication, Quintero, an administrative specialist with I Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group (Forward), had what most would call an amazing military career. She climbed the ranks quickly and was recognized with a phone call from her commander in chief. Quintero made hard work a part of her, embodying the epitome of dedication and adopting it in many parts of her life. Born in Coahuila, Mexico, Quintero was shuffled from her hometown to Texas at the age of 7 and engulfed into the U.S. lifestyle in Liberty Hill. “I was in Mexico until second grade, and then I came to the U.S.,” said Quintero. “I was immersed into all of these English speaking classes. It was kind of hard.” With the help of a tutor, she came around rather quickly, and adapted to the ways of the U.S. school system and the language. Learning another language at such a young age was difficult. However, Quintero followed the example of her mother who fought and worked hard daily. “My mom was a single parent. I saw how she sacrificed,” said Quintero. “She moved to a country where she didn’t even know the language, worked two to three jobs a day and still had time for us after work. She sacrificed everything so we could be independent.” With such a strong role model in her life, Quintero was focused and driven to do her best. At the age of 8, her family relocated to her current hometown of Austin, Texas, where she continued to put in the

hard work needed to succeed. Her mother continued to work, and she continued to excel in school. She hit a snag in high school, like most high school freshmen do. “I had a rough freshmen year, like really rough,” said Quintero. “My mom had to talk to me like, ‘What’s going on?’” She weathered the storm and pushed through the rest of secondary school while she also held down a full-time job. Throughout her time in high school, her mother always expressed her feelings to see her daughter go to college and graduate. She knew with hard work what her daughter could accomplish. With a work ethic to make most people shudder, and a bit of luck, she got her opportunity. “I thought it would be really cool to go to (the University of) Texas,” said Quintero. “For the longest time UT was only taking the top 10 percent. I wasn’t top 10 percent. I applied to a bunch of colleges. It was actually one of my last choices.” She was accepted to many different colleges, Texas was the acceptance she chose. Her tireless work got her through a four-and-a-half-year degree program at the university’s School of Education. Graduating with her bachelor’s degree during 2008, she held down a nanny job for a few months before making her next decision, a life altering one. “I still couldn’t decide what I wanted to,” said Quintero. “I wanted to teach, but you still have other goals. You don’t want to have the job where, that’s it, you teach, you have to settle.” Prior to the start of the 2009 school year, she made her decision to join the Marine Corps. She entered the delayed entry program in August and departed for recruit training in October. “I didn’t want to get too old and not know what the military was like,” said Quintero. “My husband used to be in the Army, so I was really patriotic. “I just decided it was now or

She took no time to separate herself even further. In a few short months, she went above and beyond her daily duties and

was meritoriously promoted to the rank of corporal. “I just continued to do what I did as a corporal,” said Quintero. “Nothing was too big of a challenge for me, we were so fast-paced too. I just took more responsibility. Our staff noncommissioned officer went to career course, so it was just corporals running the show.” Her hard work paid off once again. By assuming those extra duties, she was recognized and meritoriously promoted to her current rank of sergeant Aug. 2, 2011. Quintero is now in Afghanistan where she continues to show how much effort she puts into everything she does by not only assuming her duties as the administration section’s noncommissioned officer-in-charge, but as the casualty and legal chief, duties usually completed by Marines of senior rank. Her outstanding performance led to her being one of the few service members afforded the opportunity to talk

to her commander in chief, President Obama. “It was nice, but they keep you on hold for like 45 minutes, “ said Quintero laughingly. “The president was like, ‘Thank you for everything you do out there,’ and ‘Make sure you tell everyone me and Michelle hope they have a great Christmas.’ “He was nice,” added Quintero. “The best thing he said was, ‘Hey, I love Austin, it’s one of my favorite cities. Anyone from Austin is good in my book,’ then he started laughing. It was totally normal, like having a conversation with a normal person.” Quintero was meritoriously promoted to nearly all of her ranks, held a conversation with the President and is still currently serving her country in Afghanistan. All of this in a little more than three years of military service, one can only imagine what she will do in another three years.

ejeune High School’s varsity basketball team may not have the height advantage their opponents do, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t a formidable opponent. Coming off a very strong 2011–2012 basketball season, the boy’s varsity team has a lot to prove, and they’re determined not to go down without a fight. “We are way better than our record shows we are,” said head coach Joey Malott. “We’re not looking for excuses this year.” So far, the LHS basketball team is 1–12 on their season record, but with their conference season barely underway, they still have plenty of time to prove their worth to their opponents. While the 2011–2012 season was a banner year for the LHS team, this year is proving to be a struggle. When the Devil Pups’ seized the Onslow County Classic Tournament trophy last year, they became SEE BASKETBALL 7B

Winter fish come inshore Tautog approach shoreline to feed bait cleaned off time after time, some anglers use the three–tap method of hooking. Drop the bait down and twitch it from time to time. If you are using crunchy baits, you first feel two light taps as they crush the shell and spit out the debris. On the third tap, they eat the bait. Set the hook when you feel the third tap. When using soft shrimp or squid baits, try to set the hook during the first two taps. If we get a calm mild Carolina day, try your hand at catching these delectable fish. In other news, red and black drum, along with the tautog, are currently biting well at any of the rock jetties. The Cape Lookout, Ft. Macon and Radio Island rock jetties are all full of anglers reeling in these winter fish. The fuel tanks on Radio Island are still producing drums, as is Taylor’s Creek. There are still trout biting in the marshes, and in the Neuse River and Bogue Banks Creeks, as well as New River creeks like French’s, Northeast and Southwest. Not only are the drum biting on the jetties, they are also gathering in large schools inside the marshes to feed. I saw many anglers working marshes using sight cast, looking for the V–shape indicating drum movement. Also, with as calm as the surf was recently, the drum are readily targeted along Hammock’s Beach surf and behind the island as well. Gulp! Baits, shrimp or four-inch pogies on a jig head were drawing the attention of many slot drum and redfish. If you fish the surf from a boat, it is always best to have one person

at the helm watching the waves and not fishing. Even in calm seas, this can be a tricky place to fish, especially with the water temperature now in the low 50s. Other fish we await during the off–season are stripers and bluefin tuna. The last few years were disappointing for these winter visitors. At this point we may be on the verge of another disappointing season. Current reports are of a great striper bite up at the Virginia Beach area along with Bluefin tuna as well. However the striper bite is so good there it’s hard to get your baits through the stripers to get to the bluefins. This, of course, is of little to no help to local anglers, but I will continue to keep you up-to-date on striper activity. As always, please be on the lookout for any suspicious or illegal boating or fishing activities. If you see something suspicious, do not be afraid to contact the authorities. Angling along the Crystal Coast is only fun as long as everybody obeys the rules. Make sure all your catches meet regulation size limits.

Savor the moment:

Win or lose, value time

We are neck-deep in North Carolina winter– fishing mode, and the sciaenids, red and black drum, and spotted sea trout rule the roost right now. However, a lesser often–ignored target who makes its winter home along the Crystal Coast shoreline is the tautog. The tautog, or more simply “tog,” that comes inshore and nearshore to feed in the winter months, is a little known yet delicious fish. For the anglers who know how to entice tautogs, the winter months are immensely enjoyable. Tautogs are hard–bait fish. They like to eat gastropods, mollusks and crustaceans. Unlike many local summer fish, the tautog have a wide range of temperature tolerance. They can be found in abundance in warm or cold water. In North Carolina, a mild winter day with temperatures around 50 degrees Fahrenheit will most likely prove an excellent day for anglers to catch tautogs along the coastline. Tautog are structure– oriented. Like sheepshead, they eat barnacles and growths off rocks and reefs. A good rule of thumb for finding a good tautog fishing location is getting your line hung on something underneath

the surface. If you are not hung up on a rock or other underwater structure, you are not where the tautog are. Hotspots include the Cape Lookout rock jetty, Ft. Macon rock jetty at the State Park, the rock jetty off Radio Island, the Beaufort Channel, the Port Wall, the rock pile off the Barge Wreck, and some of the inshore artificial reefs like AR–315 and AR–320. To the west, they can be found at the Emerald Isle Bridge and rocky areas along the Intracoastal Waterway in Cedar Point. Most tautog are caught from October through March at these inshore and nearshore locations. Best baits for anglers hoping to catch tautogs are shrimp, rock crabs, fiddler crabs, clams and mussels. If you have any leftover frozen sand fleas from the fall fishing months, use them to catch tautog this winter. Getting them to bite is one thing, but hooking them is another. Like the sheepshead, tautog can rob you blind before you even feel them on the end of your line. Typical rigs like a standard two hook bottom rig with No. 2 hooks, or a Carolina rig also with a small hook like a No. 4 or 6 Octopus hook will work best. Remember to take off your pyramid sinkers and replace them with a smoother sinker like a bank sinker, or you will get stuck on underwater structures every time you cast. To avoid getting skunked and having your

Do you remember your last high school football game? Were you in the stands, on the field or on the sidelines? Did you win? Did you lose? More importantly, did you savor the moment? In a society that values always staying ahead of the curve, valuing each second as it comes is something we often overlook. We move 100 miles per minute, and attempt to multi task in order to keep ourselves from getting too caught up in one particular event or subject. I’m guilty of it. I would like to tell you I remember every second of my last softball game and the last time I stood on the volleyball court. The truth is, I don’t. Those memories are no longer bright and vivid. In fact, when I try to recall my last volleyball game, all I remember is being so disappointed in losing a game we should have won I couldn’t wait to get out of the

gym. I should have stayed. Most athletes find it difficult to stick around after disappointment. Let’s face it – nobody wants to hang out and relive a loss. Particularly if you’re ending your season with one. Darrin Kitchens is the exception to the rule. Kitchens, a junior linebacker for Florida State University, made the choice to savor the moment, even after his team suffered an embarrassing loss to Louisville at the Sugar Bowl last week. While most Florida players couldn’t get off the field fast enough, seeking solace and comfort in their family and friends, Kitchens kept with tradition. Despite standing alone, Kitchens walked over to the section of the stadium where the band was seated and raised his helmet for the playing of his school’s Alma Mater. It didn’t matter he was standing alone. He stayed through the entire song, savoring the last game of the year. Other athletes recognize the value of the game too. Veteran players from the National Football League talk about it all the time – the moment they realized what a rare treat it was to make it to the playoffs. They take it upon themselves to warn rookie players

of the dangers of becoming overly confident. The fact of the matter is it’s easy to live in the moment when you’re on the field, focused on scoring the next touchdown. It’s when the game is called, the scores are totaled and the handshakes are administered that it becomes difficult to keep the mindset. When you realize you blew your last chance to shine and you look up to see your biggest fans staring down at you in disappointment, is it even possible to feel passion for the moment? It’s not easy. Ensuring you savor every moment is a daunting task. Savoring the moment means accepting time for what it is. Realizing you will never get another moment just like the one you’re living in right now. The second you blink, it will be over. Your precious moment in time will become a memory all too soon. Military families all around the globe understand what it means to cherish the moment. Thousands of families are separated for holidays and landmark events in their lives. Deployed spouses miss birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and so many other important moments while serving to ensure our nation’s protection. SEE COLUMN 3B

There’s a reason most people don’t stick to their resolutions. Making one is easy. Keeping one is difficult. Whether you desire to lose excess weight in 2013 or just want to tone your body, the Semper Fit division of Marine Corps Community Services aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is here to help. To kick-start a new year, the group exercise program held a four-hour exhibition at the Tarawa Terrace Fitness Center aboard the MCB Camp Lejeune housing area Saturday. Resolution Solution was designed to offer patrons a sample of various group exercise classes offered through the Semper Fit division. “It’s good to try out some new things for variety,” said Amy Fugere, a Semper Fit group exercise instructor who taught the Body Blast class Saturday morning. “Getting in the gym now helps set good habits for the rest of the year.” While most regular group exercise classes span an hour, the Resolution Solution sample

classes were limited to 30 minutes. The shorter time frame allowed participants to get warmed up and tune into the type of exercise each class focused on. Participants took breaks between classes and sampled as many as they wanted to see which class offers the best fit for their workout style. “I tried to pick a sampling of the muscle groups we work in Body Blast for the workshop,” said Fugere. “We did lunges for legs, bicep curls to help work our arms and some ab workouts.” Body Blast, a full– body workout class incorporated kettle bells, dumb bells, bar bells and body resistance into the 30–minute sample. By allowing participants to try a wide variety of workouts, Fugere hopes she helped them find what works best for them. “I want people to find what works for them, enjoy themselves and have some fun,” explained Fugere. “I think it’s more fun to workout with others than alone, but it’s all about what works best for you.” Fugere acknowledges the first time she attended

COLUMN FROM 2B On the home front, the families they left behind cling to every Skype date, letter or e-mail. They savor the moment they hear their loved one’s voice or see their handwriting. Those who are currently home understand the importance of being actively involved in their families’ lives. They don’t sit on the sidelines and stare off into the distance. They get involved. They coach sports teams. They go out with friends. They tuck their children into bed at night. Whether at home or abroad, savor the moments as they come. Take them for what they are and choose how you remember them. Granted, there are some moments we don’t want to savor, and I’m not suggesting you try to live in the moment every second of every day. I don’t particularly like getting up in the morning or scraping ice off my car. Chances are you don’t like getting stuck in traffic on your way to work. It’s not exactly the stuff fairy tales are made of. I struggled with the concept of savoring the moment in 2012. Why would I want to savor the moment when I didn’t perform as well as I should have? Because it will make me better in the future. It’s true. Our failures, when we own

No participant is bound to do every move during the class, and as– needed breaks are encouraged by trained instructors to keep participants from overworking their bodies. While fitness centers and area gyms always see an increase of patrons coming through their doors at the start of every new year, most numbers decrease after a few weeks.

up to them and accept them for what they are, make us better. That’s not exactly a secret. No, it’s not fun to fail. Nope, nobody wants a highlight reel of their embarrassing losses and worst moments playing in their head all the time. In 2013, I am determined to savor the moment. I will accept my defeats and keep my head high, knowing every experience is precious. I will choose to remain joyful in the presence of frustration, positive in my pessimistic moments, and present in a world pushing me to constantly live in the future. My opportunities are rare. So are yours. They are fleeting glimpses, and we have just enough time to grab hold of them before they disappear. What are we waiting for? The proof is in the pudding.

Intramural dodgeball tournament set for Camp Johnson students, personnel JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

Dodgeball is no longer just a schoolyard game. With increasing popularity, dodgeball tournaments are sweeping the nation and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is getting caught up in the excitement. An intramural dodgeball tournament scheduled for Jan. 16 at the Camp Johnson gym. All Camp Johnson students and permanent personnel are invited to attend the tournament, which is slated to begin at 6 p.m. “A lot of our units out here play dodgeball as a form of physical training during the week,” explained Eoeny Messenger, the sports specialist for outlying camps at MCB Camp Lejeune. “The students like it, so we decided to hold a tournament for them to participate in.”

The unconventional game of dodgeball is a unique form of athletic entertainment as it does not involve any officials, bases or goals. However, for students at Camp Johnson who do not have the opportunity to join an intramural sports program one–time sports tournaments are the perfect answer. “A lot of our students don’t have the chance to go over to mainside and join an intramural basketball team,” explained Messenger. “We put some thought into it, and we knew it was something the kids liked so we just went with it.”

Interested students can sign up to participate until 5:15 p.m. the day of the tournament. Individuals who do not have a team to play with should contact their parent unit or speak to a member of the Camp Johnson staff, who will make sure they are paired with an already existing team. “You don’t have to have an entire time ready when you decide you want to play,” said Messenger. “We’ll do our best to help you find a group to play with if one isn’t already there.”

The Devil Pups suffered a devastating loss to Jones Senior, but the Devil Pups’ coaching staff is quick to remind fans the conference season is just beginning and the team plays better than their record reflects.

BASKETBALL FROM 1B the first team to win and host the tournament in the same year. In this year’s tournament, LHS did not win, but showcased their character by keeping their heads held high. They continue to prove their dedication and passion by holding tight to their love for the game, even after suffering a bout of losses. “It says a lot about character when you can lose a game and still come out on top,” said Malott, following the Devil Pups’ 97–81 loss to Jones Senior High School in their conference opener aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday. “And this was a hard loss tonight, but they still come out with character.” When they stepped onto the court Friday night, the Devil Pups’ started out with a vengeance in their eyes. Throughout the game, though, they battled themselves almost as much as their opponents, struggling to overcome moments when the spark faded and the light died. “The thing is they play really hungry at certain times, but then have moments when they don’t go after everything 100 percent,” admitted Malott. While the team’s offense is starting to come together, Malott said they will focus on strengthening their defense in the weeks

to come. “Offensively, we shot very well tonight,” said Malott. “The challenge this year will be our defense, but they’re going to get better. “We need to not wait to get fired up,” Malott continued. “We need to be fired up about every game before we ever come out of the locker room.” While their defense grows and strengthens, Malott and his coaching staff are pleased to be coaching a team as hard working and dedicated as the Devil Pups. “This is a team full of athletes,” said Malott, a sentiment echoed by assistant coach Senica Hill. The next Devil Pups’ home games will feature the junior varsity team, the girl’s varsity team and the boy’s varsity team in their battle for dominance over Pamlico High School aboard MCB Camp Lejeune tomorrow. Games begin at 4:30 p.m. The girl’s varsity game will begin at 6 p.m. and the boy’s varsity team will take the court at 7:30 p.m. The games are open to all Devil Pup fans.

all them crazy, insane or just plain weird, but the Polar Plungers know there’s a reason for freezin’. More than 500 service members, civilians and members of the community joined together for the Onslow County Special Olympics annual fundraiser, exceeding their goal of $30,000, in the frigid waters of Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Jan. 5. “I am excited, happy and overwhelmed with the generosity of our community,” said Dora Gaskin, event coordinator. “Special Olympics Onslow County cannot say thank you enough.”

The Polar Plunge grows in popularity each year, and this year shattered records. Not only did the nonprofit organization raise almost double last year’s funds but participation increased by nearly 150 people, including several Marines and sailors from MCB Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River. “It’s such a unique event,” pointed out Kathy Zerba assistant for Col. Mitchell E. Cassell, MCAS New River commanding officer. “People think you’re crazy to jump into the ocean in January, but it’s kind of motivating at the same time.” Zerba led Team New River to victory for the third year in a row as the best-costumed team, dressing as characters from 1970’s cartoons like SEE PLUNGE 4C

‘Keep’ away from romcom, unchain ‘Django’ Now playing at Camp Lejeune “PLAYING FOR KEEPS” (PG-13) “Playing for Keeps” is a romantic comedy about what people really want. The story follows a former sports star who has fallen on hard times and finds his way back home to start his life over. Gerard Butler (“Chasing Mavericks,” “300,” “The Ugly Truth”) stars as George Dryer, a charming playboy and down on his luck former Scottish pro soccer star, who returns back to the town where his ex-wife and son live, to put his life back together. George is looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son Lewis, played by Noah Lomax (TV’s “The Middle”), and also reconnect with his ex-wife, the one who got away. Jessica Biel (“Total Recall,” “The A-Team”) co-stars as Stacie, the divorced mother who still holds a place in her heart for her ex, and the one who wants a man who makes her laugh. Attempting to finally become an adult and redeeming himself, and getting closer to his son, George gets roped into coaching his son’s soccer team. However, he is faced with hilarious challenges from the attractive and hot ‘soccer moms’ who pursue him at every turn. Old habits are hard to break, but George soon

finds out what matters most to him is his family. Among the characters are Uma Thurman (“Motherhood”) who plays Patti and wants a man who puts family first, Judy Greer (“The Descendants”) who appears as Barb, and Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Rock of Ages”) who portrays Denise, a sportscaster who wants a man who can be naughty and nice. Also appearing is Dennis Quaid (“Footloose”) as Carl and James Tupper (“The Popper’s Penguins”) as Matt. Director Gabriele Muccino (“The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Seven Pounds”) worked from a screenplay written by Robbie Fox (“So I Married an Axe Murderer”). “Playing for Keeps” is a light-hearted film that misses on both fronts with lousy performances and storytelling. However, Lomax steals the show. Now playing in Jacksonville “DJANGO UNCHAINED” (R) “Django Unchained” is a western movie with a story about slavery. The story is set in the deep South two years before the Civil War where, with the help of his mentor, a slave turned bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. Jamie Foxx (“Ray,” “The Soloist,” “Miami Vice”) stars as Django, a

slave who has a brutal history with his former owners. This history eventually lands him face to face with a Germanborn bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz, portrayed by Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Water for Elephants”). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittie brothers and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Britties dead or alive. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda, the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago, played by Kerry Washington (“A Thousand Words,” TVs “Scandal”). Django and Schultz’s

With the help of veteran film composers Jerry Goldsmith and Luis Bacalov, Tarantino also compiled a tremendous soundtrack to include John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton. “Django Unchained” is an over-the-top, exciting and grand western, a revenge thriller that combines violence, humor and slavery.

ervice members are deployed across the globe this holiday season leaving spouses back home to decorate. Often times military spouses are unable to hang lights, or bring out the old dusty boxes or trees from the attic without their spouse. With the help of Atlantic Marine Corps Communities spouses no longer have to worry. Numerous calls were made for this

year’s annual Elf Day through AMCC housing. With the calls came volunteers ready to help service members with their festive needs. Elf Day was established to assist the spouses of deployed service members because there can be times when it’s just impossible to decorate otherwise, said Dixie Lanier-Johnson, strategic marketing manager for AMCC housing. Calls ranged from setting up giant inflatable lawn decorations, to hanging lights and even things such as getting the family’s Christmas tree from the attic. Brittany Gaines, a military spouse

whose husband is deployed, said she called because she was able to hang some of the families Christmas lights, but with small children in the house to take care of, there just wasn’t time to do it all. “This is a great service for the community because otherwise there would be hardly any decorations up for Christmas when my husband returns,” said Gaines. Family members even made phone calls for their loved ones. In the case of Linda Sklar, both her daughter and son-in-law were unable to decorate the house.

Sklar said she expected her son-inlaw home from deployment already, but is thankful for AMCC housing and Elf Day to ensure the house gets decorated in time for Christmas. “I think it’s a wonderful service to the community. I don’t know how we would ever decorate without help,” said Sklar. Volunteers worked tirelessly all day to ensure everyone’s needs were met. Decorations were hung and lights were plugged in, and for some families whose Christmas previously seemed dim, Elf Day and AMCC housing shed some helpful light on the situation.

PLUNGE FROM 1C Scooby Doo and Popeye. Cassell sported a Huggy Bear-inspired suit and platform shoes. Supporting the Special Olympics athletes is an easy decision, but Zerba explained the Polar Plunge itself becomes addictive. “Once people do it, they’re hooked and want to participate every year,” she said. “Most of our team are returning members.” Gaskin noted how the repeat plungers really grasp the purpose of the event. “I think the phrase ‘Freezin for a Reason’ comes to life in our hearts,” she said. “Some come to plunge and others come to watch, but once spectators see the excitement of the plungers and athletes, they become intrigued and become plungers the next year.” Other teams showed off their creativity as well. The sandy shores crawled with characters like zombies, penguins and even the people of Wal-mart. Several Lejeune High School teachers, staff and students showed up on Saturday morning to show their support to all the Special Olympic athletes, and they did it wearing tutus.


“(The Polar Plunge) is for a great cause,” stated Julia Kretschmer, a substitute teacher and military parent. “It counters the after-Christmas blues and prolongs the holiday season.” Her teammate, student information assistant Deborah Whiteley, agreed and said, “This is fun. It combines Halloween all the way through Christmas.” Jeanette Martinez, captain of the Teachers-R-Us team and parent of award-winning Special Olympian Jessica Martinez, recognizes the fundraiser provides a good time for a lot of people, while also assisting the athletes once-in-a-lifetime adventures throughout the year. “Special Olympics does so much and give so many people opportunities, I can’t help but give back,” she responded. “Besides, the Polar Plunge was always on my bucket list. I’ll definitely be freezin’ for a reason.” Meteorologist Skip Waters kept the plungers aware of the water temperature, a chilly 48 degrees, as they waited to jump in the waves. Waters looks forward to the plunge every year not only for the great cause it represents but because of the excitement it brings.

“It’s fun. Crazy, but fun,” he admitted. “I live in a world where I work all the time. I never get to go to the beach. Of course, this is extreme, but it feels good to jump into cold water every now and then.” Special Olympic athletes and military dignitaries, including Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, commanding general for Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune, led the first wave of plungers, quickly jumping in the wintry waters and out of the way for the hundreds of people behind them. Lt. Gen. Walter E. Gaskin, deputy chairman, NATO Military Committee, traveled half way around the world to participate, and even though he didn’t stay in the water long, he knows the importance of showing his support alongside other plungers. “Since 1975, I call this community home,” he said. “There’s no place in the U.S. with a closer connection inside and outside the gate. The community and military all coming together to celebrate the achievements of the Special Olympics athletes is amazing. Coming back is an honor.”

People eat certain foods hoping to bring success on New Year’s Day. Carp, cod or herring is eaten in several European countries. In some countries people eat 12 grapes representing the coming 12 months and the outcome of a given month depends on whether the corresponding grape tastes sweet or sour. Other countries offer a ring-shaped food to symbolize good luck coming full circle. In Holland people eat doughnuts filled with fruit, in Japan they eat noodles. Closer to Camp Lejeune, black-eyed peas, cornbread, and cabbage or greens are consumed for good fortune. Some believe poultry should be avoided on New Year’s because chicken scratch the ground in a backwards direction indicating a possible reversal in life. Lobster is not a good choice due to the reverse direction they travel in the water. If you want to eat something that moves in the right direction, then pork is the choice. Pigs root through the mud in a forward process demonstrating progress for the coming year. Spiritual food is not eaten with a fork or a spoon, but it does feed our mind and soul with things to move us in a good direction and ensure personal progress. If we focus our attention on things pulling us in a reverse direction, then we will not grow personally or spiritually. As this New Year begins, consider what needs to change in your life. Maybe you need to start something or maybe you need to stop something. Identify issues, like regrets or guilt, which limit your personal and spiritual growth. Guilt is a great indication of a wrong choice that needs to be corrected. After we ask for forgiveness we are free to move forward. By naming what needs to change you have a practical start toward progress and can avoid being stuck in the past. Also, choose someone to hold you accountable. Many great efforts are not completed because there wasn’t encouragement or support at a critical time. God often uses another person to help us. This is a divine version of unit cohesion. Spiritual and personal things can seem complex or mystical, but God expects us to make an effort. He then joins the effort and the result is our progress. Plan to move in a forward direction in 2013 by confessing what holds you back and then feeding your soul with good things throughout the year.

A member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart finalizes paperwork for a service member who received funds to supplement his transportation in order to go home this season.

Wounded service members receive funds to go home for holidays LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Wounded service members who rate a Purple Heart were given funds to go home during the holiday season through the Military Order of the Purple Heart in Jacksonville, N.C., recently. The MOPH invited service members wounded in combat to attend a check-writing event to give back to those who may not have much money for traveling. “We raised money with various fundraisers throughout the year, and now we are giving to the wounded warriors who showed up here,” said Verl Matthews, the commander of the order’s Chapter 642 in Jacksonville. “We will pay for 80 percent of their plane

tickets home, or 40 cents per mile if they choose to drive.” The service members greatly appreciated the financial help, since some of them haven’t been able to visit family back home for more than a year. “It’s a huge help and a nice relief to not have to stress out about how we’re going to be able to go home,” said Sgt. John Dozier, a Marine with Wounded Warrior Battalion – East, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Dozier was injured in an improvised explosive device blast in Afghanistan in 2011. “This is the first year I am a part of this, and I’m extremely grateful.” Members of the MOPH in attendance wrote checks for the wounded warriors and checked their documentation to make sure they were Purple Heart recipients.

“We have the greatest community in the world here,” said Jim Casti, a national welfare officer with MOPH. “They made it possible for us to be able to donate this amount of money to the people who really need it.” Matthews estimated MOPH raised $369,000 to donate to the Purple Heart recipients. “It’s a great feeling to know the community here is military-friendly to the point they’ll donate enough money for us to be able to do this,” said Rosie Noel, a junior vice commander with MOPH. Noel is the first female gunnery sergeant to be awarded the Purple Heart. She received it while in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. MOPH held this event Photo by Lance Cpl. Scott W.

Sleep apnea keeps millions awake at night

NHCL hosts town hall meeting to discuss symptoms LANCE CPL. JOSHUA W. GRANT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Millions of Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea every year, but many people of all ages who have the condition don’t realize it because they don’t know the symptoms, and it’s often undiagnosed. At the quarterly retiree town hall meeting held recently at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, Navy Lt. Stephanie Fofi, a threeyear family medicine resident, gave the retirees much of the information they needed to recognize if they were suffering

Snoring doesn’t always mean you have sleep apnea. Navy Lt. Stephanie Fofi, family medicine resident

from sleep apnea. It is unknown exactly how many people suffer from OSA, but the World Health Organization published the number could be as high as 100 million worldwide and less than 25 percent of cases are diagnosed, said Fofi. Approximately 4 percent of men and 2 percent of women over the age of 35 suffer from sleep apnea but most are unaware it’s the cause of their lethargy.

Classified as one or more pauses in breathing during the night, sleep apnea is commonly diagnosed through snoring. “Snoring doesn’t always mean you have sleep apnea,” said Fofi. “When you sleep, parts of your throat muscles relax and cause a block in the air way which vibrates, causing snoring.” People shouldn’t be too worried if they snore or think they have sleep apnea because the brain automatically wakes you

when your breathing pattern is interrupted, said Fofi. Fofi added breathing abnormalities can happen up to one hundred times per night causing lasting effects during the day. “It increases the risk of hypertension, stroke and heart attacks, heart failure and heart arrhythmia,” said Fofi. “Untreated it also causes daytime sleepiness that increases risk for work-related and motor vehicle accidents.”

Despite the symptoms and effects of sleep apnea, there are many treatment methods. Surgery, medications, oral appliances and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines all help to rid individuals of sleep apnea. CPAP machines are a type of head gear worn during sleep that regulates air flow to keep breathing consistent at night. Fofi said OSA is not always an immediate threat, but without treatment it can cause lasting effects which threaten the health and safety of millions. For more information visit

Millions of Americans suffer from daytime sleepiness and poor sleep patterns, but most do not recognize them as potential symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. Easily treatable through lifestyle changes, breathing machines and even medication, the suffering can end.
