II Marine Expeditionary Force

Approximately 100 Marines with II Marine Expeditionary Force participated in Exercise Atlantic Response 12 aboard Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue near Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Aug. 21 through 23. Atlantic Response is a scenariodriven, simulation-supported exercise designed to develop the command staff ’s ability to rapidly respond to today’s emerging crises using middleweight force. The exercise employed Marines and sailors from the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade’s headquarters who set up a combat operations center, complete with a barbed-wire perimeter on the outer coat of the air field. Within the combat operations center were Marines working on laptops while projection screens and maps covered the walls. The simulation was also supported by an additional 50 personnel working in the II MEF Simulations Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “What we’re replicating are the command and control functions you would expect out of a Marine Expeditionary Brigade,” said Brig. Gen. John K. Love, the deputing commanding general of II MEF and the commanding general of 2nd MEB. “Typically, what we do is run through a series of battle drills and staff exercises that refine our processes for staff functioning. “At this level, command and control is fairly complicated. There are a lot of command and control systems, there are a lot of mechanisms and we experience fairly high turnover of personnel over the summers. What we’re doing now is sort of back-in-the-saddle training. We’re indoctrinating new staff members into the team; we’re going through our standard operating procedures to get us ready should we be required.” The simulation was like a large computer-based game simulating the movement of actual forces. The scenario involved a fictitional country with a weak government and terrorist activity. The scenario is based on the different types of crises occurring over the past several years. These crises required Marines to conduct a variety of operations including protecting national interests, delivering humanitarian assistance, supporting disaster relief and acting as a show of force. “Right now, we’re looking at the littorals of the world, which is where the maritime domain meets the land domain, and we anticipate crises are likely to occur (there),” said Love. Love remarked how it is not only important the staff develops their operating procedures, but also develops teamwork and camaraderie. “We are always refining our processes and looking for ways to become more efficient,” said Love. “This exercise runs 10 hours a day, and every day when we stop the actual simulation play, we take a little break. We huddle to go through our lessons learned and figure out where we want to modify our standard operating procedures so we can improve them.” Exercise Atlantic Response 12 also serves as preparation for Exercise Bold Alligator 13 scheduled to take place April 2013, which continues to be the largest combined joint amphibious training exercise conducted on the eastern seaboard. The intent of these exercises is to revitalize the Marine Corps’ amphibious warfare proficiency, which remains a Marine Corps priority.



Regimental Combat Team 6

As Afghan National Security Forces take over for Marines operating in Helmand province, they coordinate their efforts through an Operational Control CenterDistrict. The OCCD, advised by Marines with Police Advisor Team 4, Regimental Combat Team 6, in Kajaki District, ensures all the operations of the Afghan National Army, Afghan National Civil Order Police and Afghan Uniformed Police are well-coordinated. “The OCCD is like a (command op-

erations center) for the ANSF,” said Cpl. Franklyn L. Plummer, an assistant advisor with Police Advisor Team 4. “It’s a partnership between the ANA, ANCOP and AUP. It’s so they can communicate together and help each other out. “Let’s say ANCOP is in a firefight, and they are near an ANA post. The (ANCOP) would let the (ANA) know they’re in the area and taking enemy contact. The ANA nearby can move to help.” Kajaki’s OCCD is a new effort, and the advisors help the different services work together. “This concept is something that may be unfamiliar to the ANSF forces, and

with each force having distinct roles, a lot of coordination needs to take place,” said 1st Lt. Bryant Yee, officer in charge, Kajaki district Police Advisor Team. The Marines said they look forward to helping the Afghans coordinate their efforts and help them fight as one. “They work together well,” said Plummer. “There can be a little friction between each group, but they do work well together.” “The OCCD definitely made the ANSF more effective,” said Yee. “The ANA and ANCOP are ecstatic about the OCCD and believe in participating in it.”


Marines, Ugandan soldiers share thoughts on unique training mission CAPT. ROBERT SHUFORD

24th Marine Expeditionary Unit

A small team of Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit were sent on a unique mission in the east-central African country of Uganda. Eleven Marines traveled from the amphibious assault ships of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group to Uganda to link up with a team of Marines from Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force who were already there conducting a training package for soldiers of the Uganda People’s Defense Force. The Marines are helping the UPDF perfect their skills in marksmanship, small unit tactics and engineering prior to the Ugandan soldiers deploying in support of the African Union Mission in Somalia. For the Marines and their Ugandan partners this opportunity provided a variety of challenges and rewards. In their own words, here is how members from both militaries feel about their interaction: Cpl. Robert W. Winegar, a mortarman with

Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th MEU – “My experience in Uganda is great so far. I never imagined I would be in Africa training the UPDF. I really enjoy being exposed to the new culture and experiences. I like the training and the challenge of working with the Marines from the SPMAGTF and a foreign military. So far, I have been employed as a combat instructor overseeing the basic combat skills taught to the UPDF troops. When the UPDF soldiers are split into their prospective job specialties, I will be a 60mm mortars instructor.” Cpl. Matteo Marshall, with BLT, 1st Bn., 2nd Marines, 24th MEU – “So far my experience in Uganda is extremely positive. We have a variety of things scheduled to teach and train the UPDF soldiers, but at the same time, we can also learn from them. U.S. forces are employed mostly in desert environments in recent years. Our current generation of troops lacks knowledge and training when it comes to jungle warfare. This is something we can improve on while working with the UPDF by learning from their experiences. I would have never expected to take part SEE UGANDA 7A

Examining the Survivors’ Benefit Plan During a Retired Regiment of the Dinosaurs breakfast meeting at the Ball Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, a fellow retiree thought an article about the Survivor’s Benefit Plan would be beneficial, especially if it was explained simply without fancy terminology. SBP is basically insurance on military retired pay. Service members have a one-time opportunity to choose the plan prior to retirement unless an open season occurs. Open season happened only three times since 1957 lasting only one year. Retirees also only have one opportunity to exit the SBP between their second and third year of retirement. The exit time went into effect in 2004 for persons retiring in January 2004 and later. Another provision enacted the same year, was the stipulation that retirees over 70 years old with the plan for more than 30 years were no longer required to pay premiums on the program while payoff to the beneficiary continues. A retiree can allocate between

$300 and the total amount of retired pay as the minimal amount into the program, of which 55 percent is paid to the beneficiary upon the retirees’ death. The cost is 2.5 percent up to $595 and 6.5 percent for amounts $596 or more. A base amount of $300 a month would cost $7.50 per month with a payout of $165, just as the cost for a base amount of $1,800 would be $117 with a payout of $990 per month to the beneficiary. The changes implemented in 2004 concerning the premium cap for age, ability to quit the plan, and insuring the 55-percent payoff to the beneficiary after the age of 62 were vast improvements over the previous program. Additional benefits of the program include non-taxable premiums taken from the retired pay, an increased payoff to the beneficiary as annual cost-of-living allowance raises, and continued payoff until death of the beneficiary as long as the remaining spouse does not remarry before the age of 55.

Some disadvantages include taxes on the payoff, premiums are not paid back to the retiree if the beneficiary dies before the retiree, and the SBP can be viewed as a property right in the case of divorce. There are other advantages and shortcomings to the program, but those mentioned above are the most prevalent. The Retired Activities Office works with an average of 105 retiree deaths per year in this region. Approximately 23 percent of the retirees do not have an SBP or insurance coverage for their widows. As a result, five widows lost their homes in 2011. The SBP, in addition to other insurance coverage, can provide security for the surviving family. What may seem like a burden to the retiree now could prove to be a saving grace to their surviving family upon the retirees’ death. For any further assistance or information on SBP call 451-0287 or visit the Retired Activities Office located in room 142 of building 60 aboard Camp Lejeune.

Resource Roundup By Mark Munger

Transition Readiness Seminar prepares service members for life after active duty This summer, President Barack Obama announced the first major re-design of the military’s Transition Assistance Program since the program’s inception over 20 years ago entitled “Transition GPS.” GPS doesn’t stand for global positioning system, but goals, plan, succeed. What most do not know is that Transition GPS is mirrored after the Marine Corps’ new Transition Readiness Seminar implemented in March 2012 by our 35th Commandant Gen. James F. Amos. Transition from active-duty service is inevitable. For some, transition occurs after initial enlistment and for others, after a 20-year career or longer. Regardless, preparing for transition is a process that must begin early in one’s career. Today we will be discussing the new Transition Readiness Seminar with TRS advisor supervisor, Bill Mottley, who will overview the program, available services and how to prepare for life after active-duty service. RR – What was the motivation for revising the transition preparedness of Marines? BM – The commandant realized Marines were separating from the Corps unprepared. A revision in the program was needed to adjust to the individualized needs of the Marine. This program provides the required veteran’s benefits overview combined with an enhanced individualized approach tailored to one of four pathways our Marines will embark upon separation. The pathways are career or technical education, college or university education, entrepreneurship or employment. RR – How is the TRS different from the pre-separation and transition assistance program, better known as SEPS and TAP? BM – Two major differences exist. First, SEPS and TAP is viewed as an end-of-service event while TRS is a career-long process. Second, SEPS and TAP does not provide specific individualized pathway options. TRS was implemented because one

course cannot meet the various individualized needs of our transitioning Marines. Additionally, TRS advisors are hired to assist Marines and spouses with creating an individualized transition plan, which includes a financial plan and relocation considerations. TRS advisors are available immediately to provide one-on-one assistance in navigating this process. To contact an advisor call 451-3754 or 451-3781 to make an appointment. RR – If a Marine or spouse completed one pathway, would he or she be allowed to attend another? BM – Absolutely. Marines have the option of pursuing all four pathways if they choose. Registration for TRS can be completed by contacting a career planner or unit transition counselor. Meanwhile, if you have questions, contact a TRS advisor. RR – Are Army, Navy and Coast Guard personnel eligible to attend TRS and does the TRS meet their separation requirements? BM – Yes. Currently, the Marine Corps requirement goes beyond the Department of Defense standard for requirements to separate from the service. Other services are permitted to attend our TRS, but I would encourage them to contact their branch representative for specific guidance. Stressing the importance of beginning the transition process early can reduce individual stress in the end. Transition can be ambiguous, but this new Transition Readiness Seminar will clearly eliminate those challenges.

A Rand Corp. report commissioned by the DOD offers three reasons to justify annual pay raises for the coming years to be less than the private sector. These reasons are a slow economy improved recruiting and retention, the draw down in Iraq and Afghanistan will lessen political fallout, and service members are well compensated after years of robust pay and benefit increases. What do you think?

I think it stinks. I think they should cut the pay of Congress, the President and his people, and give it to the people who earn their right to spend our money. Cheryl Harrell Bledsoe It is ridiculous. They should cut the politicians pay since they make more than triple what we make and they don’t have to worry about getting shot, walking up a 5 a.m. to go for a six-mile run or making sure your highly qualified since you might lose your career because of the drawdown they want. Greg Jeppson If the pay p is ‘robust’ tell me why my husban nd made less for getting shot at and takin ng out terrorists than he does in his private p sector job of oil drilling? Christy Lighthouse Umm … how is a yearly 1.7 percent increase robust? Laurie Light ‘Service members are well compensated.’ Oh, I get it. This is satire, right? Ruth Charles Robbins If the economy is so bad why are we paying Congress so much? They all need to take a pay cut. Nancy Juliao If our military members get paid enough then why do some families need to get assistance from public aid just to feed their family?

In Afghanistan, ‘big brother’ is watching STAFF SGT. BRIAN BUCKWALTER Regimental Combat Team 6

One of a Marine’s best friends in a battle is 67-tons of steel, armor and fire power. In Helmand province, Afghanistan, Marines with 2nd Tank Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 6 are using the M-1A1 Abrams tank to help make the battlefield safer for infantry Marines fighting the enemy. Lance Cpl. Kevin Quigley, a tank crewman with the battalion, compared the firepower of one tank to an entire infantry platoon. In addition to its main 120 mm main gun, an Abrams tank has a .50-caliber machine gun and two M-240 machine guns mounted. “There’s nothing else like an M-1A1 on the battlefield,” Quigley said. “It’s a little bit of an ego boost being a tanker and knowing what the M-1A1 brings to the fight.” Capt. Mike Donlin, a forward air controller, said all the Marines feel the same way. “They are excited to be deployed and want to see the infantry ecstatic that big brother is there for them,” he said. Col. John Shafer, commanding officer, Regimental Combat Team 6, recently spoke with the tankers. He said they arrived in country at a pivotal and transitional time in the fight as Marines allow Afghan forces to take the lead in security operations. While Afghans will focus on maintaining security in safer areas, Marines will operate in less secure

areas of Helmand province — places that had little to no coalition presence. “You are going to stay busy,” Shafer told the Marines. Capt. Matt Dowden, commanding officer of the company, said busy is how his “tougher than nail” Marines want to be. He said prior to deployment his company wasn’t sure if tanks were going to be needed in Afghanistan any longer. But when they found out they were deploying, his Marines completed more than seven months of pre-deployment preparations in only four months. “They almost enjoy breaking their backs to get the job done,” and they’re happy to be in Afghanistan doing what they trained to do, Dowden said. “They refuse to fail,” he added. Fourteen tanks make up the company. It’s a tight fit, but a four-Marine crew operates each tank. “I don’t think it would be a good place for someone who is claustrophobic,” said Lance Cpl. Joshua Felder, a tank crewman. In southern Afghanistan, the terrain they operate in varies from finepowered sand commonly referred to as “moon dust” by the Marines, to coarse and rocky. Water irrigation channels, known as wadis, are scattered throughout the landscape and pose a

The terrain they experienced so far in Afghanistan is nothing like where they trained, he added. Even with the everchanging landscape, the ride is really smooth, surprisingly,” said Felder. The ride has to be smooth. Tanks are designed so Marines can aim in and fire on a target even

on the move. It’s a loud ride too. Felder said the 1,500horsepower turbine engine isn’t the noisy part, the tracks are. Responsibility for keeping the tanks running falls on the mechanics, and it’s no easy task. Lance Cpl. Lucas Walsh, a tank mechanic, said the routine maintenance on a tank that runs for two hours could be an all day ordeal.

With a machine as heavy as a tank crossing rough terrain upwards of 40 mph, bolts and hoses can get jostled lose. Beneath its armored exoskeleton, a tank is a web of wires, hydraulic lines and gear works. “Finding a leak is like finding a needle in a haystack,” said Walsh. On missions, mechanics are never far from the tanks their assigned to. They either drive M-88A2

“Hercules” recovery vehicles, tow trucks for tanks, or 7-ton trucks that carry tools and spare parts. Both the mechanics and the operators don’t mind the long hours, or the cramped environment they often find themselves working in. They all say they want to make sure the infantry Marines in a fight know tanks have their back. “It’s easier to replace parts than Marines,” said Felder.

More than 20 couples flooded the banquet room at the Ball Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune for a Spouse Appreciation Night recently. As they entered the room, a soft beat of music filled the air while some guests dished up a plate of wings, fresh vegetables and other appetizers; other guests socialized with people they haven’t seen in a while, and some they’ve never seen before. “We want spouses to get to know each other,� said Jose Padilla, the family readiness officer for Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group. “By participating you learn, you get more in-

formation, you get to know who’s in charge, who does what, and it’s important.� The event continued with an award ceremony. Col. Mark R. Hollahan, the CLR-27 commanding officer, along with his wife, Kim, and the regimental sergeant major, Sgt. Maj. Lanette Wright, presented a letter of appreciation to each spouse in attendance. “In sincere appreciation of your sacrifices and support,� the letter read, “Thanks for a job well done.� Each spouse received an award signed by Hollahan, a gift bag made by one of the CLR-27 volunteer spouses, and a rose. “It’s really nice to get some appreciation for what we do because we do a lot,� said Nakyshia Leger, whose husband is a ser-

geant with Landing Support Company, CLR-27. “I have baby number three on the way, and I’m always at home with the kids. It’s just nice to have a night out, and they’re like ‘Hey, thank you for all that you do’.� The night continued with a drawing, at which Padilla gave out door prizes such as candles, gift cards and picture frames. “It’s so worth coming out to these things because you do have fun,� said Octa Fassnacht, who is married to a staff sergeant and attended the Spouse Appreciation Night last year. “It’s a way to release some stress because everyday life can be so hectic.� After the prizes were gone, couples crowded the dance floor for a few dances before the night drew to a close.

local Montford Point Marine was presented a bronze replica of the Congressional Gold Medal in a ceremony held Aug. 22 at the Burgaw Fire Department by Marines from II Marine Headquarters Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force. Anthony Caputo of Burgaw is one of approximately 100 Montford Point Marines unable to attend the Congressional Gold Medal events in Washington, D.C. To ensure the proper presentation and recognition of each Montford Point Marine, Marine units across the country are holding ceremonies in their honor. House and Senate leaders awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the Montford Point Marines in a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center June 27. The Commandant of the Marine Corps also held a parade in their honor the next day at Marine Barracks Washington, where they were presented individual bronze replica medals. Approximately 400 Montford Point Marines

were in attendance. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor awarded as the utmost expression of national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions. From 1942 to 1949, approximately 20,000 African American recruits were trained at Montford Point during World War II. Of those brave men, over 13,000 served overseas during the war. “To me, they were heroic for two reasons: they fought against the enemy during World War II while they also fought for their civil rights and the respect of their fellow Americans,” said Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos. “It is fitting that we, as Americans, honor their selfless service and sacrifice with the Congressional Gold Medal and fully embrace their storied contributions to the history of our nation at war." The medal was designed and approved by the Montford Point Marine Association, the Marine Corps and the Photo by Lance Cpl. William M. Kresse U.S. Mint.

diers are split into their prospective job specialties, I will be a combat engineer instructor teaching survivability, basic and advanced demolitions, military urban breaching and mine detectors.” The Ugandan soldiers also had positive things to say about the training. Pvt. Kenneth Edep, a combat engineer with the UPDF – “I think the training is going to provide us with a lot of experience. This is our first time using and wearing (protective vest and helmets) during our training. The classes we are getting are very useful. The UPDF is used to fighting in the jungle and now we are moving to more (urban) areas. The training we are receiving is giving us experience for when we are going in for an attack in an urban environment. This type of training is something our enemies may not have, and it will help us defeat them. I am happy to be in this course. I wish all of our soldiers could participate in this training and experience. I feel good working with the Marines. They taught us a lot of great things. The most important things I think we learned so far are First Aid and the weapon safety rules. They are the most important to me because they will save our lives.”

Staff Sgt. Alex Agupio, a combat engineer with the UPDF – “I learned a lot in this training. Many of the things we are taught are new and not covered in our previous training evolutions. I like the advantage of getting this new training. The new techniques in urban training are an advantage because we weren’t previously trained in it. We need to be trained in urban areas because we are not used to fighting in that type of area. I feel working with the Marines is good because they are teaching us new techniques to make us better when we fight.” The team from the 24th MEU arrived in Uganda in July and plans to continue training Ugandan soldiers through September. Training with foreign militaries is a standard practice for Marines deployed on a MEU. The 24th MEU participated in training exercises with Moroccan, Spanish, Jordanian, Italian, French and Lebanese forces since deploying in March. The 24th MEU is a 2,300-strong Marine Air Ground Task Force currently deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group, and is serving as a theater reserve and crisis response force for U.S. Central Command and 5th Fleet areas of responsibility.

First time, first firefight Marine stays focused during combat CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO Regimental Combat Team 6

It’s a moment of truth for many Marines – the first time they are in combat and their training is put to the test. When his squad took enemy contact during a recent patrol through Trek Nawa, Pfc. Timothy Workman found his moment. “I could hear rounds cracking over my head,” said Workman, a mortarman with 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, Regimental Combat Team 6. “The adrenaline started pumping right away.” This was Workman’s first firefight. A year ago, he was standing on the yellow footprints at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., to start basic training, a tradition every Marine recruit goes through. Now, with the mid-morning sun beating down, he was crouched in a ditch, his M16 assault rifle ready. Workman and his fellow Marines fought an estimated six to eight enemies. The insurgents fired from several different positions, shooting through small holes in walls several hundred meters away. Marines took cover in mud compounds and behind mounds of debris. Workman’s squad split into two during the firefight. Workman went with Staff Sgt. David Simons, his platoon sergeant, as they moved forward to return fire. “At one point, I witnessed Workman moving up into position to engage the enemy,” recalled Simons. “He fired on the enemy, and when the enemy returned fire, it allowed us to open up with our machine gun.” The morning sounds of Photo by Cpl. Timothy Lenzo birds and farmers were rePfc.

Marines with 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 6, patrol through Trek Nawa, Afghanistan, Aug. 16. of rifles and the “rat-ta-tattat” of machinegun fire. An hour later the fight was over, and the Marines returned to their patrol base. “Since we’ve been out here, it’s pretty common for (the other Marines) to engage in firefights,” Workman explained. “These (insurgents) will stick around and (fight) for awhile.” Workman’s company patrols the volatile Trek Nawa area of Afghanistan. Trek Nawa is an area between the Marjah and Nawa districts of Afghanistan in Helmand province. The Marines engaged enemies in firefights ranging from isolated pot shots to three–day long battles. For Workman, the fighting hit home six months before he left for boot camp. In December 2012 his friend’s older brother, Luke, was killed while serving near this same area of Afghanistan. “I went to school with Luke’s brother since the 6th grade,” said Workman. “At the time (of Luke’s death) I already decided to join, but this motivated me to continue the work Luke gave his life for.” In addition to Luke, Workman said he lost a couple other friends to the war

in Afghanistan. Despite losing friends to combat, Workman remembered his training and focused on his job during the fight. “I was trying to get positive identification on the enemy, trying to find where they were firing from, looking for spotters and just covering my brothers,” said Workman. Now that his first firefight is over, Workman’s platoon will monitor his behavior. “The main thing we look for is a Marine’s mindset after their first time in combat,” Simons said. “We are a family, so we can tell when one of our brother’s is acting differently. We watch for it and take care of each other.” Simons said Workman seemed mentally strong before and after the firefight. He is proud of Workman and the discipline he showed on the battlefield. The Marines have more operations planned through Trek Nawa and expect more firefights, before they return to the States. “I can say there’s nothing else like the Marine Corps,” Workman said. “I’ll continue picking my sergeants’ and seniors’ brains, trying to be better prepared for the next fight.”

Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandon Clark and Petty Officer 2nd Class Donald Dalizu, surgical technicians with 2nd Medical Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, test some of their surgical equipment in a Forward Resuscitative Surgical System set up aboard Camp Lejeune Aug. 15. Improvements to the medical equipment used by the FRSS have increased its power requirements, and a team of engineers and medical personnel spent a week determining the amount of energy needed to sustain its operations.

Corpsmen improve field medicine with bright idea LANCE CPL. PAUL PETERSON 2nd Marine Logistics Group

The injured come into the Forward Resuscitative Surgical System with dirt from the battlefield fresh on their boots. Advanced medical technology waits for the wounded, but the facility needs power to make the difference between life and death. It’s a refuge of life-saving medical equipment for troops in the fight, where surviving traumatic injuries is a race against time. The requirement left the team from Medical Supply Company, 2nd Marine Logistics Group sure of one thing after their FRSS energy study Aug. 13 to 17. They need more power. The Marine Corps’ intention is to keep the surgical capabilities close to the fight as modern as possible, said Navy Lt. Darren Pierce, commanding officer for Medical Logistics Company. As the equipment has advanced over the last 10 years, and as new things are added, the power requirements increased. However, the source of power is

unchanged, and it’s overloading the system. Proximity to remote locations makes the FRSS a critical factor in saving lives, but it deprives the facility of traditional power sources. Injured Marines and sailors have access to surgical personnel, portable oxygen generators, infusion pumps, anesthesia equipment and body-warming devices in less than 60 minutes after their injury, said Pierce. Corpsmen treat injured troops at the scene, but the surgeons and other medical staff at the FRSS have the ability to stabilize casualties until they can be moved to higher medical facilities. Approximately six medical professionals operate out of the facility, which can be packed up and moved to fit the needs of the combat area. The mobility requires a portable energy source capable of functioning in rigorous environments. “There were only helicopters and sporadic convoys where we were in Afghanistan,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandon Clark, a surgical technician with 2nd Medical Battalion, 2nd MLG, who worked in a FRSS on his deployment last year. Clark found the isolation often made resupplying the

FRSS difficult and felt an improved power source would be a great addition. The team at Camp Lejeune set up their own FRSS, complete with two 3000-watt generators paralleling the ones Clark used in Afghanistan. They analyzed each piece of equipment for its power requirements and then tested the entire facility’s collective power demands. The results showed a clear need to improve upon their mobile power source in order to support the latest equipment. “We found out the generators we have cannot carry the load,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Edward Rogers, an advanced bio-medical technician with 2nd Supply Bn. “This is the first step. Once our generators are up to date, it takes two people and about one hour to get this facility up and ready to treat patients.” The study will help make the medical facility an even more reliable asset on the battlefield, said Pierce. FRSS units save lives in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003. The addition of an improved power source will help it continue to serve in future conflicts.

Cpl. Diego Melendez, an embarkation specialist with Combat Logistics Battalion 24, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, poses for a photo recently on Udairi Range, Kuwait. The Marines are in Kuwait as part of a 24th MEU sustainment training package. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.


FACES OF THE Cpl. Diego Melendez, logistics specialist SGT. RICHARD BLUMENSTEIN 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Cpl. Diego Melendez gets to shoot automatic weapons in foreign countries when he is not making sure trucks, engines, parts, ammo, chow and various other mission essential items get to where they need to go. Or at least it is how he spent time recently on Udairi Range, Kuwait – firing an M-2 .50 cal. machine gun while on his first deployment. Melendez serves as a logistics specialist with Combat Logistics Battalion 24, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, and is responsible for the coordination and transportation of everything Marines need to accomplish their missions from ship to shore and shore to ship. “My job is to make sure all the gear gets from point A to point B,” he said. “We have everything from 7-tons (large transport trucks) to large containers to engine parts. You name it, I deal with it.” A big part of his job focuses on maximizing space usage while embarking equipment, especially on ship where space is limited. “It’s like I have to play Tetris on ship and make sure everything fits,” he said, referring to the video game that requires players to fit different shapes together to make even rows. When he is not coordinating the movement of mission essential gear, he does what any good Marine does – trains to fight. “Who can say their job is sometimes to shoot weapons in foreign countries?” he said. “It’s part of my job. In a couple of days I get to shoot the ‘Mark’ 19 (MK 19 40mm automatic grenade launcher).” Melendez said he decided to join the Marine Corps his senior year of high school after a chance encounter with a Marine recruiter. “I was walking up the stairs, I saw the recruiter, he looked at me and it’s when it all started,” he said. “The recruiter said, ‘do you want to know a little bit more about the Marine Corps?’ I said, ‘Yea, sure.’” Oct. 2009, Melendez found himself standing on the yellow foot prints at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. “I will never forget that day … I can’t even explain it,” he said. “You just have to go through it to understand how it feels to stand on the yellow footprints. I don’t regret this decision,” he said. How could he? After just under five months into the deployment Melendez traveled to five different countries, trained with foreign forces and celebrated his 21st birthday in Albania when the ship he is assigned to, USS Gunston Hall, stopped their for a port visit. “Who back home can say they spent their 21st birthday in Albania?” he said. Currently, Melendez is training in Kuwait along with other Marines from CLB-24. The training in Kuwait is part of a 24th MEU sustainment training package meant to keep the Marines’ skills sharp as an expeditionary force in readiness.

First mullet run brings fall

With heat, haze and humidity covering the North Carolina coast, it is hard to believe we are less than a month away from the first official day of fall. Nearly 90 minutes of day light were lost since the start of July, sulfur butterflies and monarchs fluttered through the air, and the mullets were staging in large schools around the inlets last week. All these signs point to one event and drew anglers to the water holding their breath with anticipation. Last weekend they breathed a collective sigh of relief as the first mullet run of the season breathed life into the waterways. Over time, I monitored these events, and I am pleased to report the first mullet run of the season was nothing short of perfectly normal. In the last 14 years, the average date for the first mullet run was Aug. 30, and the average water temperature was 81 degree’s Fahrenheit. Finger and striped mullet poured out of the inlets into the ocean surf on cue. Before we change subjects allow me to enlighten you on something you may not know. Finger mullet, also known as silver mullet, are an entirely different species than

striped mullet. Finger mullet are not baby striped mullet. While both are from the Mugilidae family, they are different species than the sea mullet, which is a member of the drum family. With the migrating mullets filling the surf, bluefish started to return to the beaches as well. In addition to the bluefish, red drum are returning after a seasonlong absence. Flounder are also showing up, caught from piers and beaches. Most anglers are hoping speckled trout will not tarry long, returning to the waterways with their autumnal friends. A few speckled trout were caught near the Ft. Macon Rock Jetty last week. These predator fish are most likely to bite if they are enticed by menhaden, glad minnows or small mullet. This is good news for anglers who like to use live bait. Nearshore flounder fishing on the reefs and rocks is still as hot as it gets. More flounder are being reeled in along the surf, fishing piers and the inlets. Last weekend, I caught several flounder while I was kayaking in Bogue Sound. I managed to reel in a 3.6-pound flounder while keeping my balance in my kayak last weekend. That hefty catch bit my line while I was in the shallows of the Croatan National Forest in Cedar Point. Flounder can also be caught near the Morehead City Port Wall and in Core Creek. Trout are still caught in a number of areas along the Crystal Coast. In addition to the Ft. Macon Rock Jetty, which

consistently produces strong catches of trout, the Neuse River feeder creeks and the New River saw plenty of trout activity last week. For the first time all season, slot drum were caught from the local piers and along the surf line last weekend. Red drum were caught on Bogue Pier, where the outer sandbar and frothy foam meets the drop off. Most were hooked on finger mullet intended for flounder, but if drum is a by-catch of flounder, I don’t hear many anglers complaining. There were also a few reds caught in the Haystacks last weekend, as well as in the Swansboro and Emerald Isle marshes. If you dodge the rain and storms that battered the coast last week and threaten us again this week, the drum fishery is another good place to seek them out. Many local guides will also schedule trips into the Neuse-Pamlico basin for red drum in the 30 to 50-pound range. You can catch lots of fish and get back before dark. Spanish mackerel fishing is still hit or miss, and it depends on who you talk to. There are still Spanish mackerel to catch, but the majority of them continue to run in deep water, making them difficult for anglers to catch. A few Spanish mackerel were caught by anglers trolling the Bogue Sound inlet last week. When it comes to pier fishing, anglers are happy as clams. Oceanana Pier reported Spanish mackerel, bluefish, flounder and short pups. Bogue Pier saw red and black drum, sea mullet, flounder, speckled trout, large Spanish mackerel and tarpon. Seaview pier reported

a few drum, trout and sea mullet. Lizards were reported as big and plentiful. Two tarpon were released last week. Surf City pier anglers boasted excellent nightfishing. Most anglers caught pompano and sea mullet. They also reported small red and black drum, and a sevenpound flounder. The pier staff also heard reports of sharks, as well as several lost tarpon, all of which looked to be nearly 500 pounds or larger. Jolly Roger weighed in some large flounder last week. They also saw black drum, sea mullet and pompano reeled in by evening fishers, as well as a baracuda caught from the end of the pier. Those anglers who dare to venture offshore in rocky waters were not disappointed last week. Wahoo were biting on the east side of the Cape Lookout Shoals and at the Big Rock. Offshore bottom fishing produced large black sea bass, American red snapper and grouper in 100 to 120-feet of water. Anglers itching to go offshore for American red snapper should be aware the season is closed. In addition, the black sea bass season ends Sept. 4. Make sure you do not get caught after this time period, as the fines are hefty. The sea bass are still in-season, but most of the large ones are a long way offshore. Exercise great caution when traveling in uncertain weather. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, and can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page at any time.

One small step for man What I learned from one long run

I have a love-hate relationship with running. I love the ability to run and the positive effects it has on my health, but the entire time I’m pavement-pounding I wish the gods of running would put me out of my misery. Knowing my obscure relationship with jogging, running and any form of exercise involving the number 5 and letter K, I surprised myself when I signed up for autumn races. Yes, races. Not just one. Four. Four 5K’s. Oh, and throw one 10K in there for good measure. I’m still not sure how I managed to talk myself into participating in

all these races. Maybe I didn’t drink enough water and was suffering unusual side effects from dehydration, or maybe I was under the influence of some type of severe disillusionment and convinced myself it would be fun. Either way, my name is on the roster for no less than five races in a three–month period. I’m officially committed. The day I signed up for my races, I went on a long run. I ran more than three and a half miles in less than 30 minutes. I’m still not sure how I did it. The only explanation I can come up with is that the playlist I was listening to gave me some sort of super power and enabled me to run further and faster than normal. The only other possible explanation, which is far more likely, is that a friend wanted me to sign up for the color run in November, and I knew I couldn’t sign up and make a fool out of myself, so I had to make sure I was able to run a 5K first. Either way, I ended up laying on

my back in the grass by my apartment, thinking I wasn’t too terribly bad at running, and I could take part in the color run without fear of collapsing half-way through the course. I went inside, signed up, and decided to let sleeping dogs lie until I was a few weeks away from the race. Somewhere between my decision to not think about the run and my decision to make dinner, I ended up signing up for four more races. I paid my deposit fees and everything. It was 20 seconds of insane courage that led me to say yes to the color run. I watched a short little clip of the race, and with my best friend getting married soon, thought it would be something fun for us to do together. Two hours later, I thought it was crazy to ask somebody to run a mile and then jump over a ten-foot wall. I know I’m not alone in this dilemma of being committed to something I don’t really want to do SEE RUN 5B

Personal training instructor Kristie Myers demonstrates the correct method for a crunch with a knee lift. With military ball season fast-approaching, patrons aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune are taking to the gym to look their best. For patrons who do not have the time to go to a fitness center or meet with a personal trainer, the Semper Fit staff offers a variety of ways to exercise outside the gymnasiums and fitness centers.

Personal trainers lend fitness expertise JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

With ball season right around the corner and the 24th MEU more than half-way done with their deployment, more and more base patrons are starting to make visits to their favorite fitness centers. While personal training instructors are available free of charge to all authorized Department of Defense identification cardholders, some base patrons find it difficult to make it to the gym at a set time due to work,

family or other responsibilities. For those patrons, the personal training staff has a list of several different methods to help tone and strengthen the body. Kristie Myers, personal training instructor, and Tina Brooks, personal training coordinator, cannot over-stress the importance of exercising on a regular basis. “There are so many benefits to be derived from exercise,� said Brooks. “You have your obvious health benefits, but you also have physiological benefits. It helps you sleep better. You feel

better overall. Your blood pressure lowers. Your hormones are balanced out. Working out gives you an endless list benefits.� Myers knows the use of body weight can be just as effective as expensive machines in the strengthening and toning process. “It takes between eight and 12 exercises to target the whole body for most people,� said Myers. “You can do most of them with small dumbbells or using n your ng own body weight.� t t.� Myers starts h her er exercise with dumbbell m mbbell lunges, which work o the ork whole lower body dy y in one movement givingg legs, glutes, quads and d hamstrings special attention. t tention.

(Far left) Kristie Myers, a personal training instructor with Semper Fit aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, demonstrates how to do a lateral lunge, an exercise to work the inner thigh and glutes. (Left) Myers holds herself in a side-plank position, using her body weight. The side-plank works the core, obliques and shoulder muscles. Like many other exercises, it works the body without using added weight like kettlebells or dumbbells, providing an effective workout.

FITNESS FROM 3B standard pushup to work on your arms and chest, and a side plank to strengthen and tone your core, your obliques and your shoulders,” explained Myers. To continue her core exercises, Myers does crunches with leg lifts. She starts her crunch method by lying on her back with her knees bent slightly, and then moves into a typical crunch position, lifting her legs off the ground as she does so. This works the core and abdomen more than the typical crunch because it gets the entire body moving. Next, Myers rolls onto her stomach to do a prone back extension, an exercise designed to strengthen the lower back. “Lie on your stomach and then lift your legs and chest of the ground like a dolphin,” said Myers. “This works your erector spinae – your lower back.” When it comes to using weights, Myers suggests using lightweight dumbbells bought from a local store to work arms and shoulders. The reverse fly, in which a person leans forward, keeping their back and arms straight and lifts their arms out to the side like a bird flapping its wings, helps work the upper back and deltoids. A bent over row works the lattissimus dorsi, and a bicep curl works the biceps. “The bent over row starts with the person bent at the waist, keeping a straight back, and lifting their arms straight up, bending at the elbow,” said Myers. “Most people know how to do bicep curls, which obviously work the bicep. Myers and Brooks understand it is difficult for some patrons to get to the gym on a regular basis. Some do not like to workout around others, some have small children they are hesitant to leave or simply are not comfortable meeting with a personal trainer. “You don’t have to be in the fitness center to work out,” Brooks said. “We understand people have various reasons for not coming. We are on a base dominated by men, which can be an uncomfortable thought for young women. We have a lot of things to do from home.” Home programs are helpful for spouses who are too busy to visit the fitness center on a regular basis, or for those uncomfortable with the thought, but Brooks and Myers still urge patrons to make use of their fitness centers. “Whether you’re interested in getting in shape for a sports team, want to run a marathon or start a specific program, come talk to us,” Myers urged. “We’ll help.” Patrons interested in meeting with a personal trainer to discuss an individualized program shouldn’t be concerned about the time and cost of hiring one. Personal trainers aboard MCB Camp Lejeune are available at every fitness center for free and will work with individuals on a time schedule that works to both parties advantage. “All you have to do is stop at any fitness center and pick up a health questionnaire,” explained Myers. “Everybody starts with a simple, computerized fitness test. We personalize programs depending on what the individual wants to accomplish, no matter what it is.” “It’s always best to start any exercise plan with a physical,” Brooks added. “Talk to your doctor. Then, as Nike says, ‘just do it.’” For more information on how to meet with a personal trainer, ask for help at any MCB Camp Lejeune fitness center or visit www.mccslejeune.com.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. RUN FROM 2B because I made a rash decision. People let their insanity lead them into new places all the time. We allow ourselves to be led by the thing we call carpe diem, and end up in a strange and uncomfortable position, so far removed from our comfort zone we can’t look back and see it with a telescope. While it’s true our eagerness to make rash decisions can sometimes lead us into unwelcome territory, it can also drop us off somewhere exciting and fun, fully equipped with knowledge and abilities we never knew we had until we were forced to use it. Most people don’t know they are leaders until they are forced to lead. I’m included in this category. Because I would much rather play it safe than take a risk, I don’t always know what I’m capable of until I’m forced to do it. For me, failure is not an option. I cannot and will not find myself stopping before I cross the finish line at any of my upcoming races. I expect the same thing out of my teammates, barring an injury or sudden illness rearing its head on the race course. Since I refuse to fail, I am left with no other option than to keep running. Or at the very least, keep walking. Even if I have to crawl my way through Marine Corps Air Station New River’s Zombie Obstacle Course, I will finish it. While I can assure you I will be miles away from my comfort zone, I can also assure you I am looking forward to taking part in the races I signed up for. I’ve run the distance once in my lifetime and proven to myself I can do it. If I choose not to, I’m not living up to my potential. I’m taking my abilities and flushing them down the toilet. I will miss every single shot I refuse to take. If you don’t believe me, think about this. Women defied society and stepped into roles traditionally held by men during World Wars I and II. Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Oscar Pistorious ran when they said it couldn’t be done. We shot a giant robot into space, landed it on Mars, and are receiving daily feedback from it. All of these things came about because somebody somewhere said it was worth a shot. Somebody in the world refused to fall in step with the naysayers of yesterday. It would have been much easier for women to stay at home and not step out of their comfort zones, but the United States economy would have collapsed without their willingness to work in factories and labs following the draft. Neil Armstrong could have easily let somebody


Continental Conservation: You Make it Happen

else take his place. But, if he’d done it, we wouldn’t have the iconic phrase, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” The inventors of the Curiosity Mars rover probably could have slept in the day the rover landed on Mars, but they would have missed history being made because of their ceaseless efforts and refusal to say no. Each of these people saw the goal, knew they

were taking a risk, but took a step toward it anyway. Today, we are thankful they did. They shaped history. Service members shape history every day. They protect and defend against “all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and take risks very few people are willing to take in order to secure a better tomorrow. While the jobs of active-duty Marines and sailors aboard Marine

Corps Base Camp Lejeune often place them in harms way, the risks they take are not always on the battlefield. Quite often, I speak with Marines who find themselves thrust into leadership of sports teams without really knowing how they ended up as a coach or team captain. However, after a year working aboard base, I am still hardpressed to find an athlete who doesn’t feel like his

coach is living up to their potential. Whatever moment of courage it was that led the volunteer coaches and mentors to sign up to lead a group of their peers was placed within them for a reason. The urge was meant to be acted upon. Succeed or fail, you will never know until you try. And, when failure is not an option, you are only left with one way to find out what you’re good at and what you should

probably refrain from doing again in the future. Sometimes, all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage to end up somewhere great. The question is, will you decide to take it?

(Above) Members of the 2D AAV intramural softball team enter their dugout after fielding an inning during the intramural softball playoff game at Harry Agganis field aboard MCB Camp Lejeune Aug. 23. The 2D AAV won the championship title with a 14-0 record.

The true character of a team, just like a runner, is not defined at the end of the race. It’s defined every step of the way. CWO4 Patrick Marshall, 2nd Amphibious Assault Battalion

SOFTBALL FROM 1B balls during at-bats to help score as many runs as possible. While still acknowledging their worthy opponents in every game, the members of 2D AAV managed to overcome and outsmart every other team in the National and American intramural softball leagues. Chief Warrant Officer 4 Patrick Marshall, head coach for 2D AAV, only has one explanation. “We were incredibly consistent all season,” said Marshall. “I don’t think there is anything we did particularly better than every single other team, but we stayed consistent and solid through the entire season.” New to the mainside intramural league, Marshall brought his own unique coaching style to the plate to help lead his team to victory. After participating in the Courthouse Bay intramural softball league for several seasons, Marshall found himself sidelined by an injury and unable to play as much as he

preferred. When a friend approached him about coaching the mainside league, he agreed to talk with sports coordinator Antonio Warner. “Antonio is great. We sat down and talked about expectations, and I ended up taking the coaching position,” said Marshall. “He told me they needed staff non-commissioned officers or higher to be on the coaching staff, so I signed up.” With the help of assistant Master Sgt. Solomon Reed and the dedication

of the team members on 2D AAV, Marshall’s team hit the ground running as hard as possible. They started the season with a mixture of raw, natural talent, eagerness to learn new skills, and allowed themselves to be molded by their actions at each and every game. “We started out working on basic fielding and hitting, and as the season progressed, we started using strategic fielding and hitting to help get players where we wanted them to be,” explained Marshall. “The mix – especially the placement hitting – really helped us keep control in a lot of games.” With Reed helping the infield and Marshall

working with the outfield, the powerhouse coaches were able to help mold their players into a championship-worthy team. “We started the season by making simple plays to whoever was closest, but we ended the season using what we learned about fielding to the best of our advantage,” said Marshall. Despite their 14-0 record, Marshall acknowledged several pivotal moments in the team’s season that could have easily become lost games. “We have a number of really, very critical moments in different games we played, and our guys always ended up using placement hitting to our advantage,” Marshall boasted. “It’s not an easy thing to learn, but we had a couple guys who were really good

at it. They always came through when we needed them.” Looking back over the season, Marshall said he could see a lot of improvement in his team’s fundamental skills, but nothing stood out to him more than the character of the men who played on 2D AAV. “The true character of a team, just like a runner, is not defined at the end of the race,” said Marshall. “It’s defined every step of the way. “Even in our struggles, we pulled out victories, and we learned from the teams we played along the way,” Marshall continued. “You can’t define character by how strongly you finish the race and forget the reason you ran in the first place.” After winning 10 games in their regular season, 2D AAV entered the season tournament. In their first game, against 8th ESB, they left the field with a 13-1 victory. They continued their winning streak with victories over MCCSSS and 2D Tanks Bn.

in the second and third rounds of the tournament, before finding themselves face-to-face with MCCSSS again in the championship game. “MCCSSS was a team we faced three times this year, and they gave us a real run for our money at every game,” admitted Marshall. “They are a really good team. They know how to be consistent. They could counter our moves and play a good quality game in every inning. “The championship game was exceptionally good,” Marshall added. “It was really a great game and a great effort on both sides. Ultimately, we rose to the challenge, and it made us a better team.” As they left the field with the championship title clenched in their hands and their 14-0 season record, Marshall said he knew his team was a group of men nobody else could replace. “We’ve learned a lot, and we’re better guys for it,” he said. “This is a great bunch of men, and I enjoyed coaching them this season.” For more information on the intramural softball league visit www.mccslejeune.com/sports.

he bow and arrow was invented by man more than 10,000 years ago for use in warfare and hunting. These crafted arms are still used by modern warriors, and the sport offers more than just a recreational activity. Marines with Wounded Warrior Battalions East and West practiced honing their archery skills during the Wounded Warrior Regiment Archery Camp aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Aug. 20 through 25. Approximately 40 wound-

ed warriors participated in the week-long camp where coaches assisted in improving and refining their shooting techniques. “I love this sport,” Sgt. Michael Deyoung, a Marine with WWBn-West. “Getting these helpful hints is great. It’s a great way to relax and have fun. I’ve been using bows and arrows for more than 10 years. I’m an avid bow hunter. This was my first (Warrior Athlete Reconditioning program) event, and I love it.” The camp is a component of Wounded Warrior Regiment’s WAR program, which helps the service members build confidence in their abilities. “(Archery) is a good extracurricular activity, and it’s a

good thing to get involved in,” said Sgt. Steven Joseph Keyes, a Marine with WWB-East. Keyes said he was taught to quiet his mind during archery and focus on hitting the target. He tries to apply this mindset to his work environment by tackling challenges and goals one at a time. The last day of the camp was the culminating event, in which the Marines put their practice and training to the test during an archery competition.

The Chief of Staff for Japan’s Self-Defense Forces Gen. Shigeru Iwasaki visited the Jacksonville area Aug. 21 to meet with Marine Corps officers and other officials to discuss various aspects of the American military, while his wife, Toshiko, visited Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to observe the workings of Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune and Wounded Warrior Battalion – East. Toshiko was greeted by Lt. Col. Nicholas Davis, commanding officer of WWBn-E, when she arrived at the WWBn barracks. “The barracks here are made to suit injured Marines and assist them in their transition back into the Fleet Marine Force,” said Davis. “Things like comfortable rooms and a wheelchair accessible shower make the lives of the (service members) here easier while they recover from their injuries.” Toshiko toured a room in the barracks, which features a TV, two queen-sized beds, carpeted floors and a large bathroom. Davis stressed to her wounded warrior rooms are not representative of typical barracks, and more amenities are provided to assist with speeding the recovery of wounded service members. Davis showed Toshiko other aspects of the barracks, including a barbeque area outside and a common room, which can be converted into a classroom. He also exhibited the MCB Camp Lejeune Fisher House, which he explained was to lodge visiting family for members in the battalion. After the barracks, Iwasaki visited NHCL to see the basic workings of the hospital. She was met by Navy Capt. David Lane, commanding officer of the hospital. Lane showed her the hospital’s newly re-constructed lobby. He explained the entrance is bigger and brighter than the previous one, and he liked to mirror the analogy to the hospital itself, and how they are constantly looking to improve NHCL as much as possible. She also toured the maternity ward, since births are one of

Lane showed her a nursing center for newborns, and a recovery room for mothers who gave birth two or three days prior. “Since giving birth is one of the biggest things we do at (NHCL), it is important to make sure everything there is topnotch,” said Lane. “That way, births can go as smooth as possible without any problems.” After the conclusion of the hospital tour, Iwasaki returned to MCAS New River to reunite with the Japanese delegates to continue on their excursion visiting the United States.

In 1958 Marie Johada, a social psychologist, said the ideal state of mental health is a self-reliant individual with good sense of self-perception, realistic self-esteem, voluntary control of behavior, and a true perception of the world, as well, it is someone who is a self-directed and productive person who sustains relationships and can give affection. When those traits are lost people can suffer from an inability to function adequately. Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune took steps to change the way mental health care functions by implementing many programs and by bringing providers closer to the troops they serve. Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune’s Mental Health Department grew from eight providers in 2008 to 40 today. “By increasing the number of providers we are able to capture more of the patients who need to be seen within our walls,” said Cmdr. Sawsan Ghurani, the director of the Mental Health Department at NHCL. “We can better understand the needs of the military as well as the patient, and we can get them back to fighting shape.” Mental illnesses can cause a deviation to behavior and feelings due to a person’s biology such as through a chemical imbalance or a thyroid problem, a social issue such as relationship issues or work stressors, or psychological reasons such as post traumatic stress disorder. They provide individual counseling and medical care along with over a dozen group therapy programs to help people in the best way that suits them.

Step Up For Soldiers is scheduled to host a Combat Mud Run Oct. 6 in Wilmington, N.C., to raise money to help veterans in the local area. SUFS hosts many events throughout the year with the mud run being one of the most successful.


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Many events are hosted in the local area for fundraisers, but nothing quite compares to getting dirty while supporting a worthwhile cause. The thrill of being entirely covered in dirt while competing amongst friends is not easily paralleled by other fundraisers. Step Up For Soldiers is scheduled to host a Combat Mud Run Oct. 6 in Wilmington, N.C., for competitors 14 years or older to get down and dirty. SUFS is a non-profit organization devoted to serving America’s veterans. They hold various fundraisers to support veterans any way they determine a means. The organization started by building wheelchair ramps for disabled veterans and grew to provide financial assistance to former service members in need and providing home renovations, among other jobs. “We are always looking for different ways to raise money,” said Steve Ritter, event coordinator with SUFS. “Our mud runs are a popular event people like going to and being a part of.” The mud run costs $40 for an individual to sign up and $160 for a team of four. After Sept. 15, the prices will raise to $50 per person and $200 per team. People who choose to sign up the day of event will be charged an entry fee of $65

per individual or $260 per four-person team. Ritter stressed signing up as early as possibly is obviously the best thing to do. He said the prices rise at the later dates because it takes more last-minute planning to have people sign up at a later time. “There will be live music throughout the day,” said Ritter. “There will also be food and beverages for sale. It will be an enjoyable time for anyone who shows up. Even if they don’t want to participate in the mud run, they can enjoy a relaxing day outside with friends and music.” SUFS held a mud run in April and more than 650 participants showed up to get dirty and compete in the race. The course features approximately 20 obstacles with six walls and a whole lot of mud. The races are scheduled to start at 8 a.m. Oct. 6, with the individual participants kicking off right away and lasting until 1 p.m. Team races are scheduled to start at that time and go until the end of the event. It is scheduled to start winding down around 4:30 p.m. “We like to coordinate events where people can have a good time, but we also pick popular events like these to raise as much money as we can for America’s veterans,” said Ritter. “They are the reason we host these events in the first place.”

NHCL FROM 1C such as cognitive behavioral therapy and combat stress groups. “Groups like art therapy give people different ways to communicate,” said Ghurani. “Some people can’t express their feelings and thoughts through words so they need different methods.” The Mental Health Department is also bringing providers closer to the troops with its Behavioral Health Team Model, a program that sets teams of providers with specific units so providers can build rapport with a unit’s leadership and medical teams. Many struggle to seek help for mental health issues; they fight stigma and the fear it could affect their career. However, most conditions can be treated and service members can continue to be a constructive part of the military while seeking treatment. Ghurani believes education about mental health issues along with the support of one’s colleagues and leadership can be greatly beneficial to a service member’s mental well being. “Leaders need to know they’ll get more work out of a Marine if their psyche is functioning properly,” said Ghurani. “It’s like if somebody sprains their ankle. If they keep running on it rather than letting it rest, eventually they won’t be able to run at all.” According to a study by Harvard Medical School, mental health issues are common, affecting a quarter of Americans. The military is a microcosm of society with representatives of every aspect, including those who deal with mental health issues.

Our mission is to serve the wounded, ill and injured Marines.” The camp also assists in preparation for future events such as the Marine Corps Trials or Warrior Games, which are competitive events that incorporate archery, said Jennifer Sullivan, the WAR

Safety is paramount for Lejeune cyclists PFC. JOSHUA W GRANT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The roads can be dangerous for cars, trucks or SUV’s in any weather and any time of day, but even more so for bicyclists. Whether on the road, commuting or taking a recreational ride safety must always be priority. The number of bicycle related traffic fatalities is on a steady decline in the United States for the past two decades, and with more money constantly being devoted to making the streets safer for cyclists, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration expects the number to continue to fall.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune abides by North Carolina state laws for bicycle safety, which is why there are four mandatory regulations for anyone planning to ride a bicycle aboard the base. All bicyclists must wear an American National Standards Institute or Snell Memorial Foundation standard approved bicycle helmet before riding. Between evening and morning colors, all riders are also required to wear an approved reflective vest over their clothing. John Abney, traffic safety manager for Marine Corps Installations EastMarine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, said most people remember to wear a glow

belt, but he highly recommends the more reflective material the better, especially on a bicycle. Bicyclists are also mandated to ride on the right edge of the road, following the flow of traffic, and must ride single file when riding with multiple cyclists. “On base, like out in town we are under the ‘Share the Road’ program,” said Abney. The program is designed to allow all cyclists ample room on roadways for safe travel. Bicycles are allowed to be operated at night time but only when equipped with a headlight, and a red light or red reflector in the rear. Marine Corps Community Services suggest a slew of extra tips to keep riders safe aboard MCB Camp Lejeune such as ensuring any rider’s bike is equipped for safety before they begin riding, keeping both hands on the handlebars while riding, and riding slower on wet roads or when traveling off road. Abney said with the advancements in hybrid and electric cars, ‘situational awareness’ is the most important part. These quiet vehicles can sometimes creep up on riders, and it’s everyone’s responsibility to keep alert. Abney stated a lot of riders wear headphones while cycling, which is against the base regulations and highly discourages people from continuing it. Whether it’s a family ride through the trails, or back and forth between home and work, everyone aboard base must play their part in keeping the streets safe for bicyclists.

4C AUGUST 30, 2012



On a sunny Saturday families gathered in Jacksonville, N.C., to spend the day fishing and practicing their archery skills while honoring the life and supporting the last wish of a fallen Navy SEAL. Triple Nickel, the name of the acreage of land owned by the family of the fallen SEAL, hosted the Frogman 3-D Bowhunters Challenge, a course filled with life-sized foam animal replicas for bow hunters to shoot. The event also included inflatables, a kid’s fishing tournament, a BB shoot and a dunk tank. Members of the community arrived in droves to volunteer their time, donate money and support Chief Petty Officer Chris Campbell’s mission for wounded warriors. Campbell was killed in action in Afghanistan last year. In his will, he asked his name and memory be used to garner support for organizations supporting wounded service members. Angelina Campbell, Campbell’s wife, said he asked for a goal of 100,000 people to donate to wounded warrior organizations, without a specific monetary goal; he simply wanted people to support the organizations. “He was always outdoors,” said Angelina. “Whenever he had down time he came (to Triple Nickel) to hunt with his brother.” Chris was a native to the area and worked in its parks; he surfed in its waters and hunted on its land. Any quiet, calm outdoor location was home to him, said Angelina.

It seemed a no-brainer to the Campbell family to hold an outdoor event for Chris. “Chris was such an avid hunter, and he was just getting into bow hunting,” said Angelina. He was not alone in his new-found enthusiasm for archery. Dozens of shooters of all ages went through the course shooting longbows and compound bows at their targets. “I’m glad archery can be used as a venue to let others know what the troops give,” said Brennon Morton, a member of the Lejeune Archery Club who volunteered at the event. “Archery can be used as a channel to promote a good cause.” “Everybody should be helping causes like (bolstering wounded warriors),” said Ira Sanders, an employee of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and a member of the Lejeune Archery Club. “It’s incredible what service members do for our country.” Maj. Richard Burkett, a V-22 pilot with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 261, Marine Aircraft Group 26, feels events like this are opportunities for wounded service members to get out. “Marines thrive on competition,” said Burkett. “Being a patient at Walter Reed (National Military Medical Center) gives me a new insight into the Wounded Warrior Project. I love to shoot, and I wanted to support the program.” The Frogman 3-D Bowhunters Challenge was not the first event held to sustain Chris’s final wishes, and the Campbell family says it won’t be the last. “We want to keep his memory alive and honor him in the best way possible,” said Angelina.

‘Ice Age’ gang drifts into chilly new adventure Now playing at Camp Lejeune “ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT” (PG) “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” is a 3-D computer animated feature and the continuation of the popular family franchise. The gang embarks upon another adventure after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they explore a new world. Returning are Ray Romano as Manny the wooly mammoth, Denis Leary as Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and John Leguizamo as Sid the sloth. The trio embarks upon their greatest adventure yet. Separated from the rest of the herd, they use an iceberg to launch an epic seafaring quest. Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) voices Captain Gutt, the villainous pirate, who battles it out with the trio on the high seas. Also back again are Sean William Scott as Crash, Queen Latifah as Ellie, Wanda Sykes as grandmother of Sid, Joy Behar as Sid’s mother, and Chris Wedge as Scrat, the franchise mascot, who is still chasing after that elusive nut. Joining the gang is Jennifer Lopez, who voices Shira, a sensual she-cat and the love

interest for Diego. Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier directed this fourth installment in the Ice Age franchise; with music provided by John Powell. “Ice Age: Continental Drift” is an animated comedy adventure to be enjoyed by the entire family, however the franchise is slowly fizzling out.

Lifelong learners unite No amount of time spent in the classroom, however, prepared me for the most challenging teacher we all share – life.

Oh my word with Amy Binkley

Assistant managing editor

I love learning. No amount of time spent in the classroom, however, prepared me for the most challenging teacher we all share – life. Shouts of joy were heard across the nation from parents this week as they returned their children into the trusted hands of the education system. If you were ever in doubt of whether or not stay-athome mothers really work, try filling three months with activities to entertain, educate, and, at times, simply distract miniature versions of yourself without going insane. I tip my hat to you all. I can’t fully empathize with parents, but I do remember full-well the

excitement and anticipation t felt by students as they prepare p for another school year. y Rarely did I receive a good g night’s sleep before the big b day as I wondered if my teachers would be nice, who my classmates would be, or if I had all the materials I needed. Armed with freshly sharpened pencils, brand new notebooks and a Trapper Keeper covered in Lisa Frank stickers, I’d enter my classroom with a semi-faux confidence and scope out who I anticipated to be my biggest competition intellectually. Yes, I was that kid. No, I am not ashamed. I haven’t had a legitimate reason to buy school supplies since graduating more years ago than I care to remember, but life offered plenty of lessons long after my diploma started gathering dust. I’ve learned bad things do happen to good people.

Most of the time what you’re looking for is right in front of you. People deserve a second chance but not a third. You can’t stay on your parents’ insurance forever. But I digress. Instead, I’d like to note how life, along with its tough love, also gives us an opportunity to become lifelong learners. We don’t need books, planners or new pens to capture the education personal experiences allow. The start of the school year is a fantastic reminder of the new beginnings each of us can embrace, whether we’re counting down the days until graduation or we find ourselves in the middle of a deployment schedule. Granted, starting fresh in the grown-up world presents more challenges than learning how to write in cursive, but it can be done. Many times starting over requires letting go. Toxic relationships, wrong mindsets and even offense will

inevitably hold you back from progressing forward in life. Change requires a conscious decision, and the difficulty level ranges from novice to ninja. However, if life has taught me anything, it’s more often than not change is not only necessary but helpful. Parents, as you send your kiddos off to another day of class, remember you’re a student too. You might not be figuring out the reason why teachers start incorporating the alphabet into math, but I guarantee learning to balance life while your significant other is an ocean away is just as demanding. Be strong. Be courageous. It’s a new beginning. You can do it. I want to hear from you. Follow me on Twitter @ GlobeAmy or send me an e-mail at amy.binkley@ pilotonline.


Camp Lejeune Dependant Schools School Board Elections Candidates were asked what qualifies and motivates them to serve on the CLDS Board.

Denise Goben I have two elementary aged children in 3rd and 1st grade. I’m a parent volunteer and served on CDC Parent Advisory Board overseas. My Masters is in Human Resources, Training and Development. I’m currently a Military Transition Facilitator, was civil service for 17 years and possess a wide variety of educational experiences. Jennifer Johnson I have a degree in Management with a Leadership concentration and many years of professional experience in the human services and advocacy fields. I believe in open communication by listening and following up on all concerns and suggestions to seek the most productive solutions. Virginia Juarez I’m seeking election because I truly believe in our schools and goals for every child. I want to do everything I can to see Camp Lejeune school children succeed. Having my own child in school and the education classes I took in college helped qualify me for this position. Marc Massie As a chaplain, I am very familiar with listening to concerns and advocating for others. With a bachelors of science in education and hours toward a doctorate in education leadership, I am very familiar with the topic. These skills would make me a good advocate for parents of Lejeune students. Amanda Roberts As an experienced CLDS board member and a mother of three, I feel I can bring continuity to the board. Our children are the future, therefore I feel empowered to advocate for our community to help make CLDS excel in providing our children with a top notch education. Erin Wennberg I would love the opportunity to be involved in the school system to help provide the best for our children. I am a mother of two, a current college student and have experience in an office as well as some student-teaching experience. Thank you for your consideration.

Votes will be taken at any of the seven CLDS offices Sept. 6, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Chaplain’s Corner

God works secretly behind scenes on your behalf LT. YOUNG IL HAN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

There is a saying, “If you want a friend, be a friend to someone.” In the military we are forced by necessity to make friends quickly, but have you ever wondered why you have certain friends and not others?

The Christian author C.S. Lewis once wrote, “In friendship, we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another … the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting – any of these

chances might have kept us apart.” Many factors go into the process of forming friendships. Geography, personality and serendipity are just some of the things that come into play. However, Lewis continued, “... For a Christian, there are, strictly speaking, no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been

at work.” It is an awesome truth. God brings people – specific people – into our lives through various means and paths unknown to us. My wife is my best friend. We first met on a blind date set up by a couple whom I met at an airport in New York when I went to pick up my parents returning from an

overseas trip. Yes, my parents could have and actually insisted on taking a taxi home. But that day I drove out to pick them up and ended up meeting the couple who would introduce me to my future wife. Was it luck or coincidence? I think not. I believe it was the secret MC at work behind the scenes.

Who will God bring into your life today? Perhaps he will introduce your future spouse, a new commanding officer, a new CrossFit partner or a new shopping buddy. Remember to give thanks to the MC who is always working in you and around you. He’s the one who calls his servants friends.


Richlands Farmer’s Day “It’s a Richlands Thang”

Saturday September 8th On the grounds of Richlands Primary School

annual richlands farmers day

Parade 9:00 a.m. (Lineup 8:00 a.m. at RHS)

Opening Ceremony 10:00 a.m. Rain Date: Sat Sept. 15th

Celebrating our community’s agricultural heritage ADVERTORIAL BY AMY RHODES The annual Richlands Farmer’s Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 8th at the Richlands Primary School located adjacent to Highways 24 and 258. A more than 40 year tradition, Farmer’s Day was created to commemorate the community’s agricultural heritage. Although there are fewer small family farms today, visitors to the area need only drive through the community, whose name famously reflects its strong ties to the soil, to see a variety of crops from the traditional like corn and colton to a recent revival of sorghum. “We like to remind people that when you say the name of the town it should almost be like you are saying two words Rich - Lands, “ says Amy Rhodes, the Richlands Friends of Farmer’s Chairperson. “Farming and our connection to the land is still so much about our community identity and we invite everyone to come out and help us celebrate that.” Activities will run throughout the day beginning with a parade at 9 am. Following the parade, opening ceremonies will take place on the festival grounds. Throughout the day musical entertainment from blue-grass to gospel to southern rock will be featured on the main stage. A variety of crafts, public informat ion, and community booths, as well as a food court will be featured in the center of the festival celebration. A historic hayride will offer free tours through the town’s historic district. There will also be inflatables, jumpers, and bounce houses, children‘s games, pony rides, and a petting zoo. Children ages 4-6 may also compete for lil’ Miss and Mr. Farmer. Participants dress up in their best farmer or farmeress style and join judges for a fun conversation about everything from their favorite summer activity to how many

pets they have. Preregistration is requested for the Lil’ Miss and Mr. Farmer competition. In addition to the usual festival activities, there are several special elements that distinguish Farmer’s Day apart from other fall festivals including the traditional competitions held during the event. Sack races, watermelon eating competition, frying pan toss, and egg toss are some of the event favorites. Farmer’ s Day is also home to a regional antique and vintage tractor and farm vehicle show. “Everyone looks forward to the Parade of Power,” says Rhodes, “The tractors and vintage farm trucks (many more than 75-50 years old) drive around the festival grounds for everyone to enjoy.” To learn more about the Farmer’ s Day Festival, contact 910-324-7492 or visit the website at friendsoffarmers.org. Amy Rhodes is the Chair of Richlands Friends of Farmers.

The latest shades of lipstick, eyeshadow and blush sit on display for interested shoppers at the Marine Corps Exchange aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Aug. 17. Patrons are allowed to have their makeup applied by the professional artists in the cosmetics departments. LOOKS FROM 1D “I like making people feel good about themselves,” said Vincent. “I can have a teenager come in who is afraid to look up but by the time I’m through with her she’s ready to go to school.” The make-up artists use skills garnered through their own experiences with makeup and their know-how in the world of art. Vincent was an interior designer before entering the world of cosmetics, and she met her colleague Colette “CoCo” Klotz in a flower arrangement class. “Whether you’re painting a face or painting a house, color is color,” said Vincent. The makeup artists guide their patrons through whatever look they want, teaching techniques and tricks of the trade while they’re at it, whether it’s an understated look for work, a vivacious look for after-five, or how to transition between the two. Susan King, a patron of the cosmetics department, came to learn new techniques to use for her son’s wedding.

“I came here before, and Debi does such a wonderful job,” said King. “She doesn’t apply makeup so heavily that I’m uncomfortable with it.” King tried a bold color for the first time during her recent visit. A bright turquoise lined the rim of her lower eyelid, a color she matched to the dress she wanted to wear for his reception. It was a change from her usual muted look. Another aspect of the visits King appreciates is the makeup artists’ honesty. “Instead of pushing me to new products they show me how to use the products I already have,” said King. But to the makeup artists it’s not about the bottles and powders lining their shelves. They are there to share in the community’s lives. Klotz spent more than a decade in the makeup business. She sees women come in to prepare for their weddings and later have children. She sees those children grow into teenagers. After 29 years as a military spouse, and as the mother of a sailor, she has a

lot of experiences to help her relate to her clientele. “It’s hard to be a military spouse, taking care of children while your spouse is in harm’s way,” said Klotz, who speaks with a French accent peppered with her adopted home’s southern twang. “I’ve been there, done that. I feel like I can help people and touch their lives. We are here for support. We are a family. We laugh together, we cry together.” However, they are not just there for military spouses. They also cater to service members. Staff Sgt. Elizabeth Christian, an administration instructor at Marine Corps Service Support Schools, visited the cosmetics department to explore new techniques and learn the latest in makeup trends. She visited before in her uniform and was there to try a more effervescent look to use when in civilian attire. “I’ve always loved makeup,” said Christian. “You can emphasize different aspects of your face. Makeup can make

you look entirely different.” While in uniform she wears muted makeup and suggests her Marines do the same. “You can still be beautiful (in uniform),” said Christian. “You can still be a lady. You just have to keep it neutral and within regulations.” With endless possibilities available outside of work King suggested being open-minded. “Try the opposite of what you normally do,” said Christian. “If you typically wear something neutral try something bold.” Makeup is an adventure, Klotz added. “It’s a lot of fun. “If you don’t like it, we can always wash it off and try something else. It’s free and painless.” Makeup artists are available from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays, and Mondays and from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at the main exchange.

Community is at the heart of humanity. Author John Donne wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” Life, with all its joys, uncertainties and surprises, was never meant to be done alone. Its purpose is to be shared. Residents of Tarawa Terrace and Midway Park converged for a community blend picnic at the Tarawa Terrace Community Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune housing area Aug. 25. “We wanted to put together an event to celebrate the end of summer and bring together the two communities,” said Lorraine Fuller, recreational specialist at TTCC. “We wanted to offer patrons an opportunity to mingle and get to know each other.” As Greg Whitt, the facilitator for Drum for Change, set out his percussion instruments, it was clear to the neighbors this event wouldn’t be the typical get-together. Hand drums surrounded the perimeter of the dance floor, and Whitt invited members of the audience to pick a place and pound out their own rhythm. “The community brings all the talent to the music,” Whitt noted. “We do a process-driven program to help develop skills and talents. The audience becomes part of the band.” Whitt explained to the guests how drumming was used for centuries in nearly all cultures for ritual,

healing and celebration. He also pointed out the connection made between people who participate in the musical endeavors together. “What’s neat is it not only helps encourage group participation but individual creative expression,” he said. “You’re learning to do your own thing within the constraints of the group.” While some people, especially the children, let loose and drummed to their own beat immediately, others seemed more apprehensive. “Most people haven’t done something like this before,” observed Whitt. “Everyone starts on equal ground. Several people were intimidated at first, but they really felt the support from the group. Many of them said it was nice to know someone had their back.” Whitt’s assistant, Annelies Gentile, simply described what made the rhythmic drumming experience so special. “A person, no matter age or ability, can find their voice,” she said. The drum circle wasn’t the only surprise the community had coming. Jamie Poletti and Jena Honeyman, members of the group Strength and Elegance, impressed the young residents with their hula hoop and acrobatic routine. They spun and twisted the hoops in stunning tricks, at times using only one or no hands. When they invited the crowd to grab their own hula hoop and try their hand at it, smiles stretched across the faces of every child and even some parents.

Nate Brown rounded out the entertainment with his performance on the steel drums which he explained to the audience used to be regular oil drums before being hammered into an instrument. Victoria Braggiotti-Brown, recreational specialist at Midway Park Community Center, watched as residents bonded through activities they may never have participated in before and noted the importance of community members coming together for events. “For me, community means a group of people with a common bond,” she described. “For our communities here in the Camp Lejeune area, it is the military life. No matter what your age or rank, we have all felt the same at some point, whether it be a deployment, moving and starting over, the ups and downs of a new marriage, or raising a family.” She added events like the picnic provides family experiences to give everyone a chance to grow closer, and recreational learning opportunities that could lead to a new hobby. “The best part is there’s sure to be at least one person in the crowd, no matter how young or old, you can connect with,” BraggiottiBrown said. “In a lifestyle that moves you every few years, and friends come and go in cycles, it is our job to provide opportunities for our communities to get out, have a good time and build relationships, even some that will last a lifetime.” For more information on community events call 450-1686 or 451-5529.
