LANCE CPL. ALFRED V. LOPEZ Regimental Combat Team 5

Combat engineers with Company A, Combat Logistics Battalion 1 and local workers improved road conditions by repairing a key bridge, Nov. 12. The bridge, which needed critical foundation repairs, is vital for both local travel and military missions on a major intersection between Marjah and Nawa. “Today’s project involves a bridge which has wing walls that are eroding,” said 1st Lt. Steven Thomas, a platoon commander

with Company A. “Our goal is to replace those wing-walls to make them last longer and make the bridge more stable for the civilian and military traffic.” Wing-walls provide the bridge with structure to the heavy support foot and vehicle traffic passing through the intersection. “The water flowing through here also provides water for the farmers, and this bridge is vital to the locals traveling to the bazaar,” added Thomas. “By improving this intersection, the travel conditions will improve for the locals, as well as

our convoys that come through,” said Cpl. Logan Homstad, a fire team leader with Company A. The combat engineers managed to control local civilian traffic while completing their work, leaving local commerce unaffected. “The biggest challenge is that it’s right next to a bazaar,” said Homstad. “There’s a lot of traffic moving around the area.” “We have to keep the locals out of the way because there’s a lot of heavy equipment moving around,” explained Thomas. “We don’t want any of them to

get hurt, as well as impede our progress.” Some of the locals even lent a helping hand to the Marine engineers, as they clearly understood repairs to the bridge would be beneficial to the local community, Thomas added. The mission was easier because of the support and manpower of the locals, said Cpl. Travis Dye. The Company A Marines worked expediently, digging out the existing structure with heavy equipment, and emplacing the new wing-walls that will keep

the bridge supported in the years to come. “My Marines were outstanding…They had to wade into the water, sometimes getting waste deep into the mud,” explained Thomas. “Some even had to get pulled out with the help of a few Marines, because the mud was so thick.” The bridge is one of Company A’s many projects supporting infrastructure development here in southern Helmand. “We’re happy to be here,” said Homstad. “We’re happy to do projects that matter.”


Marines launch tactical officers’ course at Helmand academy PETTY OFFICER 2ND CLASS JONATHAN CHANDLER

Regional Command Southwest

The inaugural running of the Tactical Leaders Course, a training program for small unit-level Afghan officers, has begun aboard Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province. During the nine-week course, the Joint Sustainment Academy Southwest will host 21 lieutenants and captains from various Afghan

National Security Forces and provide advanced training in skills key to small unit success. The students come from all branches of the ANSF in Helmand province, including the Afghan National Army, Police and National Security Directorate, said 1st Lt. Joshua Oresko, an instructor at JSAS. “We want to make successful squad leaders, platoon commanders, company commanders and staff officers,” said Oresko. “Just like every course at

JSAS, the TLC is joint in order to provide all services' officers with a common knowledge and skill set.” The course will provide training packages in map reading, land navigation, weapons skills, tactical leadership, driving, tactical communications and dismounted and mounted patrolling. Students will also be exposed to operational planning and considerations for running operations centers. The result is a training package similar to that U.S. forces experience

during pre-deployment and basic officer courses. “This class will benefit the students because we incorporate so many new ideas that few of them have mastered, or even been exposed to,” said Oresko. “We want the students to walk away from this course being able to train their men properly, receive a mission, process that information, plan an operation, prepare and issue an order, and make tactical decisions – all the skills that a good officer should have.”



Extensive training leads CLB-1 EPT to success with ANA CPL. KATHERINE M. SOLANO 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)


Like those before them, Combat Logistics Battalion 1, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), made a concerted effort to put together a well-rounded group of Marines to create their Embedded Partnering Team. The EPT is responsible for training, mentoring and advising Afghan National Army units as they work to become independent from coalition forces, a priority of 2nd MLG (Fwd.) as they prepare to transfer authority to 1st MLG (Fwd.) in the coming months. According to 1st Lt. Owen Finnegan, the CLB-1 EPT assistant officer in charge, not only were the individual Marines handpicked, but their pre-deployment training was crafted, planned and carried out over the span of multiple months. “There was a real attempt by the leadership of CLB-1 to ensure there wouldn’t be anything we weren’t ready for, so we wouldn’t be caught unaware or unprepared,” Finnegan said. For Marines on partnering and advising teams, the survivability training they receive, including advanced medical and combat readiness

courses, is crucial because they often conduct operations without coalition support as they work to increase the ANA’s independence. The particular unit that the CLB-1 EPT is mentoring is the 5th Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps, and thus far they have shown they are ready and willing to learn and operate without assistance, according to Finnegan. “Our (ANA) unit is actually rather proficient,” Finnegan said. “They run all their convoys on their own.” Despite the unit’s ability to operate on many tactical levels on their own, there are still challenges that the EPT faces while mentoring the Afghan soldiers. “Our major issue is now that the Afghans can do a lot of these things on their own, how do we step away?” Finnegan pointed out. “Now they don’t even want us to go on the convoys with them. They do that on their own and they are proud of it and they should be. This ANA kandak has become a success story very quickly.” Finnegan added, once the Marines finish supply and maintenance training with the ANA, their job will be even closer to being complete. “It’s our goal to work ourselves out of a job, so we aren’t in this business anymore,” he said.

Greatest Generation honored at World War II Commemoration Day CPL. ANDREW D. JOHNSTON

2nd Marine Division

They lived through the Great Depression, fought in World War II and came home to build one of the finest nations known to mankind. Hailed “The Greatest Generation,” these men and women are now in their 80s and 90s. Marines and sailors from this era were honored at the 2nd Marine Division World War II Commemoration Day Ceremony Nov. 18, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Active-duty Marines escorted the veterans to various places on base and shared their experiences with them. “This is definitely an honor and a privilege to be escorting these Navy and Marine Corps vets around,” said Sgt. Isaac Garza, a field radio operator with 3rd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division. “You can see the joy on

their faces interacting with the Marines. Just being here sharing those familiar stories with veterans shows you that once a Marine always a Marine.” According to the National World War II Veterans association, veterans from the era are dying quickly – at the rate of 740 a day. Mike Burkhead, son of one of the vets, said he wanted to make sure his dad was properly honored before that time ever came. He said that just seeing him interact with all of the younger Marines made the trip all the more worthwhile for him and his father. “He kept on thanking me a whole bunch for bringing him here and I am so happy to have been able to bring him here and experience this with him,” said Burkhead. “Seeing all you guys is a great experience and hearing all of the stories is great.” Throughout the day, veterans were given a chance to see some of the new equipment the

Marine Corps uses today and visited various parts of the base. They exchanged old war stories with the Marines and explained the type of weaponry they used in their time. “It sounds like the static displays are what they’re most excited about,” said Garza. “It will be interesting for them to see just how far the military has come technologically.” The veterans took a group picture with active-duty Marines and let out a loud, ‘ooh-rah.’ Old friends laughed and joked with each other as if no time had passed since their last encounter. They made their way to the tour buses and thanked the Marines for their time. “I think they all just like being able to talk to you guys so this is a good opportunity to mix with all you guys and share the stories,” said Burkhead. “You guys are all wonderful and we really appreciate the time to come out here and honor these men and women.”

Bonnema (right), both with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, speak with Word War II veterans during the 2nd Marine Division World War II Commemoration Day Ceremony Nov. 18, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Marines set up various displays and shared their own personal stories with the vets.

Marine finds missing child aboard Camp Lejeune Staff Sgt. Charles T. Rotenberry, an assistant kennel master with the platoon, received a picture of the girl and began leading his team in the search. After not immediately picking up a trail, Rotenberry explained, he was just about to redirect his search when he thought to try and think like a kid to get a clue as to where she might have taken off to. “That’s when I looked around and was like, ‘Where’s the little kid going to go.’ Most little kids don’t just walk out of a screen door and make a button hook the other way,” said Rotenberry, a father of four. “They tend to walk straight. So I decided to start walking where I thought the kid might walk and that’s when I saw her sitting in a blind corner of the neighbor’s porch.”


2nd Marine Division

Recently, a mother momentarily lost her twoyear-old daughter aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Thanks to Marines with military working dog platoon, Military Police Support Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group, the child was quickly found. Typically Marines from this platoon use their skills with the K-9s to sniff out improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan and track insurgents, but when they received a call concerning a missing girl, they responded with the same readiness and quickness that they would during a combat scenario. After arriving on scene,

“I guess they didn’t notice the house was unsecured,” said Rotenberry. “She was just sitting there playing with her dolls. She saw me in uniform and she came running over looking for a hug. I think she thought I was her dad, because of the same uniform. I think her dad just came back from Afghanistan. So she was probably confused and saw a Marine in uniform and ran over.” Rotenberry explained that the police did the same things, but believes the girl was probably in the house when they were looking and calling for her. He also added had the girl wandered into the woods, their Marines and dogs would not have stopped until they found her. Rotenberry had five separate tracker teams ready to scour the base.

This was not Rotenberry or the platoon’s first time using their resources for a search. During the course of their most recent deployment to Afghanistan, the platoon used their dogs to discover 71 IEDs. Senior leadership, such as Master Sgt. Frank A. Ginn, senior enlisted adviser for the Military Police Support Company, regarded Rotenberry as an upstanding Marine who has repeatedly contributed to their fine unit both during their deployment and in the rear. “He definitely sets the right example. Marines can look at him and see he walks the walk and talks the talk. He’s a Purple Heart recipient from this last deployment and is currently pending a valor award for treating a double amputee and assisting with

the Marine being successfully medically evacuated. He was the first one there. He applied the tourniquets. A Marine lived because of his actions.” Ginn attributes both Rotenberry’s and the platoon’s success in both Afghanistan and stateside to their training. Ginn said it is doing their training the right way, day in and day out, that gives them the confidence to shine when called upon. “In this particular case it was Rotenberry, but ultimately it could’ve been anybody because it’s about what we do over here. Train, train, train – it’s a team concept. It’s not just the dog or the handler. Whether it’s down range looking for insurgents, IEDs or back here locating a lost child, it’s what we do day in and out in our train-

ing that sets us up for success,” said Ginn. In 2010, there was a convicted felon aboard MCB Camp Lejeune who was wanted for shooting someone. After evading Naval Criminal Investigation Service, the shooter hid in the woods on base. The platoon was called upon for their unique tracking skills to help local authorities and NCIS hunt the male down. “This individual had been in the tree line for an hour,” said Ginn. “We were doing our own training at the time. But we were able to come all the way over, link up and in half an hour, we had the individual. It’s about doing the right thing and being consistent. If you’re doing what you need to do when an opportunity comes up, you’re going to be successful.”

Cpl. Brandy Bates, assigned to Female Engagement Team 11 in Marjah district, Helmand province, listens to other Marines with FET talk about their experiences during deployment, Nov. 13. The Marines assigned to the team travel to Camp Leatherneck every 45 days for reset training, before going back to their battalions.

New girls in town: Female Engagement Team resets CPL. KATHERINE KELEHER Regional Command Southwest

A surge of more than 40 Marines with the Female Engagement Team came to Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, recently, where they were able to kick up their boots and talk about their experiences in Afghanistan since they began their deployment. During their time on Camp Leatherneck, FET received reset training, which the unit conducts every 45 days. In their reset training classes, the Marines covered topics such as rules of engagement, escalation

of force and basic lessons learned on relationship building with the local Afghan populace. “It gives us an opportunity to re-group and reorganize our missions,” said Sgt. Jessica Lugo, the FET 6 team leader in Sangin District. “A lot of things can happen in 45 days. When we come back (here) we can do those lessons learned, recap, learn anything and revise anything that we might need to execute later on in the future.” The mission of FET is to reach out and interact with Afghan women and their children. Until FET was established, women and children were not heard from

because of cultural restrictions. Afghan women past the age of puberty are not permitted to talk to men. Since FET, made up of nearly two dozen two- to three-member female teams of Marines and sailors serving as hospital women, was stood up nearly two years ago, they have been able to build relationships with Afghan women within their communities. A main priority of the FET team members during reset training is to talk among one another about lessons learned and come up with new ideas on how to approach women, different ways to get word out in the villages about upcoming

meetings, or even different ways to possibly get local Afghans to understand the importance of sending their children to school. It is nice to hear about the progress being made in other districts such as Marjah and what they are doing, so when it comes time when teams such as the ones in Sangin are ready to do something new, they already have an idea about what should and should not work, emphasized Lugo, who is a military policewoman by trade. Sangin District, where Marines recently executed Operation Eastern Storm, is still considered to be a major insurgent threshold and

many locals are still too fearful to leave their compounds, Lugo explained, making it exceedingly difficult for coalition troops to work toward counterinsurgency. “I can tell you that 90 percent of the women we talk to have never seen FET,” she said. In response, FET teams in Sangin District spend as much time as possible in public meeting as many of the local women as possible. Team members agree that success can be measured in small and large ways. “We did a bicycle handout with the students that participated in our old (combat outpost) for good attendance (in school),” said Cpl.

Brandy Bates, a team member with FET 11 in Marjah District. “We handed out about 40 different bicycles. “We also discovered a girl’s school with about 110 girls ranging from ages 6 to 15, which was really nice. We have some hygiene classes we’ve given to the (Afghan National Army) as well as some of the local children.” Armed with lessons learned during reset training and the successes of previous FETs, current team members said they are looking forward to accomplishing their missions and goals within the communities of Helmand province in the upcoming months.

East, West Wounded Warriors saddle up for classic title SGT. JUSTIN SMITH

Wounded Warrior Regiment

The Wounded Warrior Regiment based out of Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., partnered with the Semper Fi Fund and D & M Cattle Company to host the four-day Wounded Warrior Cutting Horse Classic II in Nokesville, Va., recently. With minimal riding experience, 10 Marines and sailors from Wounded Warrior Battalion –West and WWBn-East learned how to saddle, care for and ride horses. The riders’ goal through the training was to successfully “cut” cattle while on horseback during the competition. Cutting is the equestrian sport of separating a cow from the herd, mimicking a skill cattle herders use to treat cattle.

This is the second time Col. John L. Mayer, commanding officer of the WWR, and retired Army Col. Don York, D & M Cattle owner, teamed up to for the program. Professional trainers and contenders in the National Cutting Horse Association came in to give these young men and women an accelerated learning experience on the sport. Mayer and York, both avid horsemen and military leaders, formed the Wounded Warrior Cutting Horse Classic to motivate and teach a skill to wounded, ill, and injured Marines and sailors.The classic presented the 10 riders the opportunity to learn the sport for three days, and gain the skills to compete against one another on the fourth and final day. The participants learned stall maintenance, brushing and washing horses, flag drills,

herding and basic riding. Riders were assigned to two divisions, amateur and non-professional. Division placement was based on how the riders preformed during prequalification runs. Of the 10 riders, four placed in the non-professional division. Petty Officer 2nd Class Melissa Jamarillo, the lone sailor in the competition, was one of the four riders to qualify as a non-professional. Jamarillo had never ridden before the clinic and was extremely nervous on the first day. With the help of expert horsemen, such as Brian Wideman, Mo Smith and Jim McDonough, she was able to place second in her division. She fell behind Sgt. Israel Franco by just half a point.

Field exercise sharpens sailors’ skills, assesses first-timers PFC. FRANKLIN E. MERCADO

2nd Marine Logistics Group

Marines and sailors with 2nd Medical Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group participated in a field exercise at Landing Zone Lark aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. The battalion used the time to reacquaint itself with a deployed environment. The five-day exercise included patrols, simulated improvised explosive device training, ambushes by insurgents and treating wounded patients for an array of injuries. The training had an extra sense of importance because of the amount of sailors who never deployed or participated in a field exercise, said Petty Officer 2nd Class Jason Figgeroa, a hospital corpsman and lead petty officer with the battalion operations section. “A lot of the sailors here haven’t been to the field,” he said. “Since it’s their first time in this type of environment, the training is critical.” The training was so crucial to the battalion, even Navy Capt. Cameron L. Waggoner, the commanding officer for 2nd Med. Bn., participated. As the sailors waited for simulated casualties to arrive at their position, Waggoner fell to the ground with a fake snake bite. Once on the ground, he began to yell for help and waited for assistance. Corpsmen sprung to action and put their training to the test thoroughly and quickly checking their patient for any weapons or contraband. As soon as they finished patting him down, the litter team transported their

Though he’s been the battalion’s commanding officer for a short period of time, he’s made his presence felt, mentioned Figgeroa. “Since he’s been here, we’ve seen he’s very hands-on,” he said. “Not many other commanders will fall to the ground and fake an injury for the purpose of the exercise.” The battalion began their training priming Company C for its deployment, scheduled for next year. With their commanding officer spreading the handson attitude, the battalion will undoubtedly put forth their best effort to be ready to support their comrades in Afghanistan.

Providing personal security in perilous places CPL. MARCO MANCHA 2nd Marine Division (Forward)

Nestled in the rolling mountains of Afghanistan near the Helmand River are the fighting warriors of 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward). They battle the threat of a waning insurgent force and bring peace to the local residents of Afghanistan one patrol, convoy and firefight at a time. Within their ranks is a special group of Marines dedicated to keeping the battalion’s highest-ranking officer safe when he leaves the relative safety of the base. Marines with the Personal Security Detachment for 1st Bn., 6th Marines, provide security for their commander, a particularly important task during Operation Eastern Storm. The ongoing operation, dedicated to eliminating the insurgent threat along Route 611 from Sangin to Kajaki in the Upper Sangin Valley region, is proving successful as Marines have taken control of the area ahead of schedule. The unit’s battalion commander, Lt. Col. George Benson, wanted to see his Marines’ progress in person throughout the operation. His PSD made sure he was able to travel through the area of operations safely and comfortably. “I travel with my PSD everywhere I go,” said Benson. “They make sure I get where I need to go in the quickest, safest manner possible. Having them is a great asset to this battalion.” The PSD is made up of a melting pot of Marines from different military occupational specialties. Although the majority of the 21 Marines are infantrymen, they also have a corpsman, motor transport operators, a mechanic, an improvised explosive de-

vice detection dog and his handler and a radio operator. All the Marines play a vital role in protecting Benson, as well as any VIPs who visit their area of operations. Gunnery Sgt. Jonathan Wetzold leads the PSD on every mission they do. “My guys have been outstanding throughout the deployment,” said Wetzold, the PSD commander for the unit. “We all come from different backgrounds – some even come from a different battalion – but in the end, we have a job to do, and my guys do it well.” The PSD conducts convoys up and down Route 611 almost every day now and have completed dozens of mounted and dismounted patrol missions. These hard-working warriors spend an average of 12 to 14 hours a day executing convoy missions, conducting maintenance on their six combat vehicles, cleaning weapons or planning. Other Marines in the PSD, like Cpl. Joshua Johnson, take on several responsibilities. Johnson works as the radio operator for the team and maintains all communications systems on the vehicles, as well as the radios carried by the battalion commander, sergeant major and the vehicle commanders. “I make sure I keep up the communications for the PSD (and) run radio checks before every mission we head out on,” said Johnson. “I also check for any other communication problems, or if people have issues (providing) a report – I’m usually the duty expert on that. I help some of the junior Marines do (proper reports via communication lines).” Something as simple as learning how to issue a proper casualty report can mean the difference

between life and death for any Marine on the battlefield. Having a knowledgeable person like Johnson to take care of communications for the team really helps out the entire PSD, said Wetzold. Wetzold and his team of Marines all agree they focus on protecting the battalion commander, but are very versatile as well. They’ve helped out on logistics missions, transported detainees and even provided security overwatch for the unit’s Company B, who inserted into the area via airborne assault in the initial stage of Operation Eastern Storm. Johnson said he knows the PSD doesn’t always get the “coolest” missions, but understands the importance of every Marine in the mission and knows other people depend on him for their safety. “We bust our butts every day to do our part and provide the best security for any Marine or other personnel that ride with us,” said Johnson. “We get them to where they need to

The PSD’s average 30 mile-a-day trips along this route recently included an escort for the Kajaki District governor, the battalion commander and the 2nd Marine Division (Fwd.) commanding general from the Kajaki Dam to the Kajaki Bazaar and back. The Kajaki District governor, Sharif Udin, hadn’t been to the bazaar in more than seven years because

of the stronghold the insurgents had on the area. “I’m proud of the things we’ve been able to accomplish as a team out here, but I’m especially proud of my guys,” said Wetzold. “I had only two weeks to work with my team before deploying, and despite the small differences between them, they always seem to know when its time for business. I have full confidence in all of them and their abilities to get the job done.”

Task Force Leatherneck. Task Force Leatherneck serves as the ground combat element of Regional Command (Southwest) and works in partnership with the Afghan National Security Forces and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations. The unit is dedicated to securing the Afghan people, defeating insurgent forces, and enabling ANSF assumption of security responsibilities within its area of operations in order to support the expansion of stability, development and legitimate governance.

Victory in Nawa: voice of progress CPL. JEFF DREW 2nd Marine Division (Forward)

The third day of the Nawa Victory Walk began early. Marines with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), woke as the sun rose, then filled up on energy bars for breakfast. They checked their equipment, refilled water containers, met up with their Afghan National Army counterparts, and headed for the front gate. The third day of the fourday, 30-mile patrol was in full swing. The battalion commander of 1st Bn., 9th Marines, Lt. Col. Tyler Zagurski, joined Afghan Lt. Col. Gul Ahmad, the commanding officer for 1st Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps, to continue their trek, meeting with local elders and Afghan residents along the way to promote confidence in Afghan National Security Forces. The Marines’ aching shoulders and sore feet seemed to be a thing of the past, as they had grown accustomed to the weight and pace of the movement during the previous days of patrolling. In the last two days, the Afghan soldiers and Marines had seen a lot. On the first day, they moved hundreds of meters into the desert to aid local forces if necessary after hearing gunfire in the distance, an event that highlighted the readiness of Afghan police to maintain security. “During the movement to contact (the enemy), I think the ANA and the Afghan Local Police did excellent,� said Sgt. Jeremy Cooney, the ground element commander for the patrol. “I was impressed. They immediately set out flanking movement and got online and pushed out straight toward (the gunfire). They

Key leaders, including council members, local elders, and the district governor, arrived at the Loy Kolay Precinct, an Afghan security outpost, to cut a ceremonial ribbon and place the foundation bricks. Morale was high as the group set out the third day, marked by a shorter distance of eight kilometers. As they exited the door that led to the surrounding town of Khalaj, Cooney took charge of his Marines, and they fell in line behind the ANA.

“I think we are setting out to do what we intended,� said Cooney. “The biggest part of this was being able to go to the different (patrol bases) and let (the Afghan soldiers) see that their commanders are out here with them. The ANA and the Marines are walking the streets and keeping it safe – I think, so far, this has been a success.� As the ground element commander, Cooney is in charge of all Marines walking in the patrol, taking charge of all security aspects and ensuring coverage in all directions. His southern drawl matched with the surrounding sea of cornfields and farms highlighted his southern upbringing, and he spoke of his family as the soldiers and Marines


walked down the dirt roads. He described his five children and how he couldn’t wait to finish the mission and go back to the United States so he could go fishing and hunting and ride horses with them. Nawa’s security stands on the cusp of transition to Afghan control, and as the Marines patrolled to the various patrol bases and outposts, Cooney spoke of some of the district’s progress. “The people were pretty supportive of us when we got here, but I think we’ve been able to build on that relationship a lot,� said Cooney. “There are many more patrol bases being run by ANA than when we got here – that, in itself, is a big accomplishment. (Afghans)

are starting to take care of security and do things themselves.� “You reach a point in a place like Nawa where continued growth and progress is impossible until you take a step back and encourage your partners to fill the gap,� said Zagurski. “We won’t let them fail. We haven’t let them fail. We’ve watched them very carefully, and they have been very successful.� The ANA soldiers and Marines patrolled to Patrol Bases Luy Jolah, Jangeali, and Toor Ghar. At each stop, Afghan security forces welcomed them, offering food and chai tea. From Toor Ghar, the Marines jumped into vehicles and moved to Patrol Base Kharaman, an abandoned mansion turned

into an outpost where they would sleep for the evening. With one day left on the scheduled patrol, the service members were excited. They tucked themselves into sleeping bags to fend off the dropping temperatures and fell asleep under the stars. “I couldn’t be prouder of my men,� said Cooney. “They keep pushing on without complaint – some have blisters, or their shoulders ache, but they don’t show it.� Editor’s note: This is the third installment in a four-part series chronicling a trek across Nawa district called the Nawa Victory Walk, a four-day, 30-mile patrol by U.S. Marines and Afghan National Army soldiers.

After a Remembrance Day ceremony, different units in attendance laid wreaths to remember the fallen at Camp Bastion, Helmand province, Nov. 11.

Marines join UK partners for Remembrance Day ceremony CPL. MEREDITH BROWN II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)

At the 11th hour on Nov. 11, 1918, the armistice was signed between the allied forces and Germany to end World War I. Today, the Nov. 11 serves as a national holiday in many of the allied countries throughout the world. In the United Kingdom, the holiday is known as Remembrance Day, and it commemorates all uniformed men and women who

gave their lives in WWI and since. At Camp Bastion, Helmand province, hundreds of UK and other coalition forces gathered to mark the occasion with a remembrance ceremony. “This is our annual event to remember all the fallen soldiers, comrades from the great World War I all the way up to the recent conflicts,” said Warrant Officer 1st Class Darren Edkins, garrison sergeant major for Camp Bastion. “So it is our time to get together and reflect and remember person-

al people that we’ve lost ourselves and any of the soldiers that have been lost.” A two-minute moment of silence was held in remembrance of the roughly 20 million people who died in World War I and those who have died in following conflicts. Wreaths were also placed at a memorial at the center of the formation by distinguished guests, including new UK Secretary of State for Defence, the Right Honorable Phillip Hammond.

For many of the troops in formation, the setting of the ceremony kept the significance of the occasion fresh. “Being out here brings it a little more to home and because only last week we were here in this same spot at a service remembering our fallen comrade who was (killed in action) last week,” said Edkins. “So, to come together again this week on this day at this time to do the same, it just makes you think about a lot more because being out here we are actually remem-

bering people that we ourselves, within our own units right now, that have fallen in battle.” “It is very significant for me because I have thoroughly enjoyed the partnership that I’ve had, especially with the British chaplains here at Bastion,” said Navy Capt. Steve Brown, chaplain for Regional Command Southwest. “We’ve had partnership and ministry and I’m happy to be a part of a ceremony honoring their war dead. It made me proud to be a part of it.”

Teens from youth challenge program get Marine experience CPL. WALTER D. MARINO II 2nd Marine Division

A group of teens received a chance to interact with Marines from Air-Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force, aboard Camp Guernsey Army Air Field, Wyo., recently. In between training events, ANGLICO decided to put some time aside to give the teens a combat fitness test after learning the kids had a genuine interest in the Marine Corps. The teenagers were from the National Guard Youth Challenge Program, an organization that helps 16 to 18 yearold high school dropouts earn their high school diploma or GED. Fourteen percent of the graduates join the military and 28 percent continue their education. The program’s headquarters was located within a five-minute walk of where the


Marines were staying on base and occasionally some of the kids would walk over to talk to the Marines. “They would come up to us at the smoke pit and ask us questions, so I proposed the idea, ran it up the chain and it happened,” said Lt. Geoffrey J. Zann, naval gunfire liaison officer, 2nd ANGLICO. “You never know what kind of impact that could have on them later on.” The CFT starts with a timed 880-yard run, moves into a two minute maximum set of 30-pound ammo-can shoulder presses and finishes with a maneuver under fire course – which includes exercises such as low crawling, a casualty drag, a fireman’s carry and a sprint with an ammo can in each hand. The intense test is designed to prepare Marines for combat situations, but for the kids it was a chance to experience the physical demands of the Marine Corps GI POST 9-11 V O ED BILL APPR TRAINING

The event received outstanding reviews from both the staff and participants. Cpl.

I saw this little kid that couldn’t have been more than 105 pounds and he was cranking (ammo can lifts) out. I told him, you got this and he cranked out more of them.

Many of the teens had an interest in joining the service and jumped at the opportunity. “It’s what I expected – it wasn’t easy, but I did better than I thought I would,” said Coulston S.

Hill named Marine Corps League Award recipient SGT. JUSTIN J. SHEMANSKI 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)

Recently during a break in his year-long tour to Afghanistan, Sgt. Jonathan Hill proudly walked across a stage aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., to claim the Marine Corps League’s Sergeant Harry D. Myers Award. The moment was his, but Hill, the air delivery chief with Landing Support Company, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), noted during an interview back in his parachute loft aboard Camp Leatherneck Nov. 7, that it was a total team effort that got him there. The award is bestowed annually upon an enlisted Marine within a combat service support element of the operational forces whose contributions have significantly impacted

operations and readiness within the unit assigned. For 2nd MLG (Fwd.), Hill was their man. After arriving in country last February, Hill took it upon himself to take an already solid support program - thanks to the efforts of his predecessors with 1st Air Delivery, based aboard MCB Camp Pendleton, Calif. - and increase its efficiency and tempo even further. The first changes were implemented after he made several visits to others in the parachute rigger community. “I looked into what the Army was doing here and also went to Kandahar, Bagram and Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar,� explained Hill. Changes he introduced within his own unit included the transition from stationary to assembly line-style rigging and modifications to the preparation phase of


Marines, Kajaki locals reconcile during holiday CPL. JAMES CLARK 2nd Marine Division (Forward)

In celebration of Eid alAdha, an Islamic holiday, 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), and Afghan National Security Forces took steps to foster ties with the local citizens of Kajaki Sofla. The area had seen little evidence of the Afghan government in the past six years, and until the outset of Operation Eastern Storm, served as a safe haven and logistical hub for insurgent forces in northern Helmand province. The holiday, which spans multiple days, is a religious celebration with a focus on making amends with enemies, explained Sgt. Chris Gonzalez, civil affairs team chief with 4th Civil Affairs Group in support of Company B, 1st Battalion, 6th Marines. Gonzalez, along with his team, joined members of the Afghan Uniformed Police in giving away rice and beans purchased from the Kajaki Sofla Bazaar. “When you give rice and beans as opposed to money, you show you are respecting their wishes, and their culture,� explained Gonzalez, addressing concerns brought up by the locals that the gap between the two cultures is an obstacle to overcome before there can be true cooperation between coalition forces, and the local populace. “It’s one of the things they ask us to do. Acknowledging and respecting culture (is) one of the things the children and elders alike have repeatedly asked us to do to,� said Gonzalez. Opting to donate food in lieu of money serves another purpose, Gonzalez explained. Money can flood an area, and inevitably bring forth a landslide of short term benefits, but what happens when the strings tighten on the coin purse, when the money

stops coming? Instead, civil affairs personnel like Gonzalez focus on high impact, low income projects, where a smaller amount of money can go a longer way. “We can give them money, but not if you look at setting them up for longterm success,� said Gonzalez. “We’re looking at the long term goal of setting up processes. A good example is the canal project we are working on. It’s supposed to help 4,000 families and all we’re doing is supplying a tractor and a few other supplies. It costs minimal money and will have a high impact.� Civil projects like the construction of new canals and irrigation systems, wells and other forms of infrastructure form the bedrock for success in the area, but the pillars come from establishing strong ties between the local citizens and the local police – the one consistent representation of the Afghan government the people in Kajaki Sofla have. “The relationship between Marines and the populace is important, but for long-term stability the relationship between ANSF and the local populace is critical,� said Gonzalez. Gonzalez, and members of the Police Advisory Team, tasked with supporting their Afghan counterparts, hope by having the AUP participate in Eid, give away food to local children, and interact with shop keepers and customers at the bazaar, that these bonds will be forged. “We’re trying to put an AUP face on everything,� said Lance Cpl. Justin Blosser, a police adviser. “They have to learn to do it on their own. We took that first step, then used AUP counterparts so he could put their face on what we’re doing. You have to understand that it’s not our house, it’s theirs, and we’re trying to build relationships on both sides.�

upcoming drops. In doing so, his team has doubled the amount of drops completed when compared to previous months. “My predecessor with 1st Air Delivery had a lot of the same things in mind before they left, but just didn’t have the time to push through them,� he said. “We had the time to turn their intent into action.� Hill noted that his team has greatly increased the survival rate of their drops due to changes in the packing process. They have also cut the loading and assembly time of a Container Delivery System bundle from 20 minutes to a mere 10. In perhaps one of their grandest accomplishments to date, they have dropped nearly three million pounds of food, water and ammunition to frontline troops. This includes direct support to reconnaissance Marines as well as elements of the 2nd Ma-

rine Division and Georgia’s 33rd Light Infantry Battalion as they conduct combat and security operations in Helmand province. Just a few months remain in his deployment, but the work ethic that prompted Hill’s superiors to recommend him for the Myer’s Award is still evident. Three million is an ambitious number in any context, but for the Marines of 2nd Air Delivery, the sky is the limit. They would still like to clear three and a half million pounds of drops before redeploying, said Hill. “It was an honor to represent the MLG in Quantico,â€? said Hill, who also made note of the fact that he was the only Marine present at the awards presentation who actually flew in from Afghanistan. â€œâ€ŚBut I enjoy my job and was just doing what any Marine would do. We do our best at all times.â€?

Hampstead race offers something for all ages JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

On your mark, get set, trot. More than 500 participants joined together in the Hampstead Kiwanis Park to trot their way across the finish line, Saturday. The 4th annual Turkey Trot, part of Marine corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Grand Prix race series, is an example of thought put into action. When Dale DePue, the Turkey Trot race director, and her husband took part in a race in Wilmington, DePue noticed that many of the participants were from

the Hampstead area, which, at the time, did not have a single long-distance race on its community event calendar. Four years later, DePue has put together one of the most well-attended races in the coastal Carolina region. “I started thinking of a way to get a race in the Hampstead area and I wanted to use the Kiwanis Club Park,” said DePue. “I made a proposal to them and they liked it, so we started working together.” Featuring three options, the Turkey Trot lends itself to all ages. The 8K race option winds runners through a scenic neighborhood route while the two-mile fun run gives less-adventurous runners and walkers a chance to enjoy the Hampstead Kiwanis Park scenery. Children under the age of nine participated in the halfmile kids’ sprint on the

paved path within the safety of the park. “The two-mile race started at the same time as the 8K did,” said DePue. “We started the half-mile kids sprint to help give the kids something else to do and another way to get exercise.” As participants turned into the Hampstead Kiwanis Park, it was clear that DePue and her volunteers were expecting a big turnout. Volunteers in the parking lot helped strategically park cars to avoid anybody from being blocked in and a fire truck parked along the roadside, ready to block the stretch of road that the 8K runners would be on. Registration lines stretched out of the picnic area where volunteers quickly filed registration forms and put together race goodie bags and stretched around the edge of the concessions area.

‘Grandpa knows trout’ Dr. Bogus shares a Thanksgiving tale Onslow Offshore the men in the families came over to introduce himself to me. He With Dr. Bogus told me his name was Mike and he worked at Bogue Field over by the mainland. Mike and I exchanged pleasantries Thanksgiving is a – he told holiday that brings me how he frequented together several of my Bogue Inlet with his wife favorite things. What can and their friends and be better than family, how his grandpa often friends, good food, good tagged along for some weather and good trout good fishing. We boasted fishing? about the big catches we In honor of had found at Bogue Inlet Thanksgiving, I wrote and how we loved that a story about two the inlet was a breeding traditions that go hand ground for drum and in hand in my family trout. After a few minutes on Thanksgiving Day – of conversation, we then Thanksgiving meal and went our separate ways. trout fishing. Mike’s grandpa, 82 On a warm Sunday in years old, had been late November, just before fishing Bogue Inlet for Thanksgiving, I was most of the 20th century. fishing about one mile He was dressed for trout up from Bogue Inlet. I’d fishing, from his hipspent most of the morning hugging boots hooked at fishing the Bogue Inlet his waist to the several hole for spotted sea trout, layers of plaid flannel using trout-MirrOlures shirts and baseball cap and grubs to secure my that he always wore. catches. Grandpa had two rods, Late in the morning, one sand spike, a chair after I’d been fishing for and a pile of shrimp with a few hours, two families him and it was clear that in pickup trucks drove he was ready for a full into my field of vision afternoon of trout fishing. and joined me. One of Once grandpa baited his

hook, he placed his rod over his right shoulder and proceeded to walk slowly down the beach. When he reached the spot he had deemed worthy of fishing, he would cast the shrimp with an expert throw and turn his back on the incoming wave with the confidence of his 82 years. Without missing a beat, he placed his rod over his right shoulder and retreated back up the sandy slope, cranking his reel in reverse. Once he reached his destination, he lowered himself into his chair, placed his rod across his lap and waited patiently. The afternoon turned quiet and we fished in silence for a while, before grandpa’s rod suddenly became alive. Grandpa started to crank in the line, very slowly, letting whatever was on the other end lead him in their strange dance. Finally, Mike’s wife yelled, “Gramp’s got a fish.” Sure enough, grandpa continued to crank, reeling in a silver, black speckled trout that was clearly no match for his expert hand. With grandpa in full control, focusing on doing the same thing I was sure he’d done 1,000 times before, the fish emerged from the surf and didn’t fight as grandpa pulled it up to his chair and took hold of it with one hand.

Excited by grandpa’s catch, Mike and his wife, along with their friends, quickly grabbed up the trout and plucked it off of grandpa’s line. They placed it in the cooler in the back of one of the pickup trucks and took turns patting grandpa on the head in recognition of his triumph. Without looking up, grandpa nodded and sighed in acknowledgment or their affection. Then, without wait, he re-baited his hook, walked himself back down the sandy slope and repeated the process that had caught him his first trout. At the end of the day, it was clear, with multiple catches that I, along with Mike and the rest of his crew, were fishing amongst a great trouting legend. Every year, I am reminded of how thankful I am that I was able to watch grandpa that day at Bogue Inlet just doing something that made him happy. As you prepare to enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends, take a moment to reflect on what makes you happy. It doesn’t have to be something big. Happiness comes in all sizes. It might come in the form of a big family get together, or like grandpa, it might come in the thrill of catching a small fish.

Committed to the call Athletes can learn from Marine Corps values

If at first you don’t succeed, try again. If you don’t succeed a second time, the third time’s a charm. What happens if you don’t succeed the fifth time you try? At that point, most people would just give up and forget about trying to accomplish whatever they had set out to do. For high school senior, Christian Bergeron, giving up was simply not an option. During the 5A boys’ state cross country championship, Bergeron collapsed 25 yards from the finish line. Unseasonable heat and humidity contributed to the exhaustion and dehydration that caused the athlete to collapse several times before finally giving up and crawling toward the finish line in a last-ditch effort to finish the last race of his high school career. When Bergeron collapsed, he was 13th in the race. By the time he got to the finish line, he had fallen to 39th. At that point, it wasn’t about winning or calculating his total race time – it was just about crossing the finish line. According to Bergeron’s teammates, his dedication to finishing the race was nothing short of what they expected from him. Known as someone who would do anything for his team, Bergeron’s perseverance was nothing short of a reflection of the personality he carries in other areas of his life. When asked about their teammate, members of Bergeron’s cross country team used him as an example of what it meant to stand for a team. The honor and respect he had for cross country, paired

with the courage to push through his pain and frustrations to get to the finish line and his commitment to not let himself or his teammates down, carried him across the finish line. The values that define athletes like Bergeron and tennis pro Rafael Nadal, who competed in Wimbledon despite a serious foot injury, are exemplified on a daily basis by those serving in the Marine Corps. Honor, courage and commitment are non-negotiable and are expected to be upheld by every person who stands for The Eagle, Globe and Anchor. It is honor that holds athletes to a higher standard than the average person. In the same way, honor binds Marines to high moral and ethical standards. Both athletes and Marines are expected to show the utmost respect for those around them. They are to earn the titles bestowed upon them, whether it is team captain or staff sergeant by showing respect and honor for those surrounding them. Marines hold each other accountable for their actions and do not skirt away from doing what must be done. Any athlete looking to prove that he honors his team must do

the same. He must cling to personal and professional integrity and instill the same high values within their teammates. Courage is the ability to work through one’s fear. According to the Marine Corps core values, courage is honor being put into action. It is the physical manifestation of the honor Marines have for themselves and those around them. Whether shown through their valor and altruistic bravery in combat situations or their willingness to go the extra mile for their comrades, Marines demonstrate the importance of courage in all situations. For athletes, courage has a similar meaning. While courage may not show itself in gallantry in the midst of combat, it does, as exemplified by Bergeron, show itself in the ability to move past pain and obstacles to reach the goal outlined at the beginning of each challenge. Commitment to a cause is not something that can be faked. It must be genuine in order to be effective. Nobody does commitment better than The Few, The Proud. Broken down into two parts, commitment is selfless determination and relentless pursuit of excellence in all areas of life. Marines show their commitment to their country and their Corps every day with their selfless actions. Athletes who are searching for the true defi-

nition of what dedication and commitment really mean look no further than the Marine Corps. When nothing else remains, Marines push through on dedication and willpower to succeed - to be the best of the best. Athletes who wish to illustrate this kind of commitment must first be willing to set aside distractions and personal feelings for the greater picture. They must be willing to become selfless and humble leaders who do not give anything less than 110 percent of their daily effort. They must leave everything on the field and spare no expense when it comes to working for the betterment of their team. An example for the rest of the world, the Marine Corps models what honor, courage and commitment means. They uphold themselves to the highest moral standards, shine brightly in the darkness and press forward, no matter who else may be falling back. They are the best examples of what it takes to become the best of the best. When it comes to seeking out the true definitions of honor, courage and commitment, I can think of nowhere better to look than to the world’s most elite fighting force. The Marine Corps shines as an example for the rest of the world - from the high school runner who crawls across the finish line to the exhausted football quarterback in double overtime, and everyone in between.

Tarawa Terrace community fun run provides exercise to all ages PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


unning is one of the most basic types of exercise. It is a part of almost every popular sporting activity, but is it a family activity? For military families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, the answer is yes. More than 60 patrons arrived early Saturday morning to participate in the Family Fun Run, hosted by Tarawa Terrace Community Center, aboard the MCB Camp Lejeune Tarawa Terrace housing area. The November chill didn’t intimidate the families of devoted runners, who donned long sleeves and leggings before they braved the cold. “We hold these monthly runs throughout the year, and we seem to have more participants on our coldest and hottest runs,” said Lorraine Fuller, a recreation specialist with Tarawa Terrace Community Center, a division of Marine Corps Community Services. “They must really like the challenge.” The monthly runs start in January with a onemile run and increases in distance every month. However, for those who do not want to run farther than one mile, the milelong challenge is always available. Photos by Pfc. Nik. S.

Youth Sports Program builds success from volunteers, always needs more CPL. DAMANY S. COLEMAN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


he Youth Sports Program aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is on the move. First, it has been particularly successful in providing little to no cost extracurricular athletic outlets and mentorship opportunities for the youth aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. Second, the Youth Sports center is in the process of relocating to a new location, due to renovations at the former Youth Sports Headquarters on Stone Street. Chris Alger, Sports Branch head with the Semper Fit Division of Marine Corps Community Services, said the key to the program’s success is largely due to its volunteers. “The program runs strictly on volunteers, a little more than 300 a year,” said Alger. “We supply all the gear a coach needs - uniforms and equipment - and staffing if they need extra help so they can have a successful season for the kids.” Volunteers are clearly an important part of the Youth Sports Program. It’s not difficult to volunteer. Alger said all volunteers need is a good attitude and a willingness to work with kids. However, due to deployment cycles and the consistent coming and going of the military lifestyle, the youth sports center is always looking

Chris Alger, Sports Branch head with the Semper Fit Division of Marine Corps Community Services, said more than 300 people volunteer each year for the Youth Sports Program. Since the program operates strictly on volunteers, they are always welcomed and encouraged to find something they enjoy doing within the Youth Sports Program. for new volunteers who are willing to help with any aspect of the program. “We never have enough because people are always coming and going,” said Alger. The Youth Sports program covers more than 10 different sports, which have their

respective matches, games, meets and tournaments each season. Another key to the success of the Youth Sports Program is the involvement of the parents, who often go as far as to become coaches or team mom’s and dad’s. “We see a little more than 3,000 kids in a year

through the program so it’s vital that the parents, Youth Sports Program, coaches and officials all (work together) and are all on the same page,” said Alger. “We’re constantly keeping in touch with them, giving them updates, standings, rosters or field conditions – the parents are just

important as anybody.” In addition to the Youth Sports Program’s relocation, the program is also getting a new sports complex, which will be unveiled next fall. The temporary office for the Youth Sports Program is located inside the north entrance of the Goettge Field

House, facing Holcomb Boulevard. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on the Youth Sports Program, call 451-2177 or visit the Youth Sports website at mccslejeune. com/youthsports.

Camp Lejeune Marine chosen for Military-inspired reality competition JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

When Staff Sgt. Louis Pope returned from his deployment early last summer, he expected to enjoy his leave time by visiting family and friends and then come back and put his nose back to the grindstone at work. His command had other ideas. Pope, a member of the 2nd Force Reconnaissance Battalion, stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, was on leave in June when his command called him and informed him that he had been selected to represent the battalion and the Marine Corps in a militaryinspired reality web-based competition show called “Maximum Warrior.” “Up until my command called, I had never even heard of the show,” recalled Pope. “They just called and told me they had selected me to go. I got online and looked it up and thought it sounded fun, so I said okay.” A week and a half later, Pope found himself at Crawfordsville, Ark. with nine other elite operators at the special elite training facility T1G. For the next seven days, he spent the majority of his time competing against other Special Forces operators from every branch of the military in an effort to see who would be named the Maximum Warrior. With 10 competitions on the line, designed to test the skill and stamina of the contestants, Pope underwent various combat scenarios while at the training center. He and his competitors were woken up early – usually

before dawn – with no knowledge of what the day would bring. They were put in a holding room and one by one led from the room to the event location, where they learned what was expected and how long they had to complete the task at hand. After completing the challenge, they were moved to another holding room to keep them from sharing the event with those who had not gone through it yet. “Basically, we showed up at every event and they said ‘Here is what you need to do. Here are the rules. Go.’ And we went,” said Pope. “From that point on, you just tried to do everything as fast as you could with the best accuracy and in the correct format, just like you would do if you were stuck in a real-life combat situation.” Since he did not know he was going to be competing in a web show prior to going on leave, Pope did not train specifically for the show, but said that his career in the military was all the training he needed to know what to do in the scenarios the Maximum Warrior competition presented to him. “For the most part, the situations they put us in simulated combat situations very well,” said Pope. “Of course, there was a little Hollywood thrown in and there was nobody trying to kill me with a gun, but they did a good job of making everything they put us through feel like a realistic scenario.” Of the various competitions he competed in, Pope said his favorite was

to smoke it, but then I got worked up and didn’t use the proper technique for a couple of the obstacles. I got worn down and burnt out and it showed in my time.” Following their 10 challenges that pitted the elite operators against one another, they were given an additional five challenges to complete with a civilian partner, who had no prior military or combat experience.

“They called it the pro’s and joe’s buckets,” said Pope. “They put all our names in a bucket and drew out partners. It was blind selection, so we didn’t know who would be paired with or what they would know about what was coming up.” Pope was paired with Mike Caudill and the two quickly became a solid and unified team. Caudill motivated Pope by his willingness to give the


competition his all and Pope returned the favor by letting Caudill take the reigns in the challenges they competed in together. “The thing that really impressed me about Mike was that he was determined not to let me down,” said Pope. “He was a phenomenal partner and we kept each other going.” SEE POPE 7B

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. TROT FROM 1B To help get the crowd of more than 500 runners warmed up for their races, DePue had invited Zumba instructors and secured hula-hoops for people to use to limber up. The Topsail High School chorus was on hand to sing the national anthem during the opening ceremony and the race would not have been complete without the large blow-up turkey mascot sitting in the middle of the park. DePue, having pulled together the Turkey Trot for four years, expertly explained where the 8K started and where the two-mile fun run began. To keep runners from getting confused, the races headed in two separate directions and converged at one finish line, where their run times were recorded. Mike Marion, race director for the Grand Prix series aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, provided the timing system for the Turkey Trot. “Mike has been doing the time for us for all four years of the race,” said DePue. “It’s part of the Grand Prix series now, which works well because it brings a lot of Marines and families out.” Thomas Volpi, a retired Marine, was amongst those who attended. Volpi has run 75 percent of the Grand Prix races this year as a way to stay active. “This is your typical road course,” explained

Volpi, who finished the 8K in 39 minutes and 44 seconds. “You run through some nice housing developments.” “Trying to plan out the perfect race map is really hard,” said DePue. “I’ve heard people say that they want to have the 8K start and end on a straight path, but to find a straight path that we can use is a challenge. I just feel like if we keep changing the route, nobody will ever know which way they are supposed to go.” As soon as the signal was given for the 8K and two-mile runs to start, runners converged onto Sloop Point Loop Road, protected by a fire truck, which kept cars from trying to squeeze past the runners and disrupting the race. When the sound of thundering feet had dissipated, DePue and her volunteers sprung into action. They prepared cups of water and fresh fruit and foods for the runners who crossed the finish line. A handful of supporters who did not run the race stood with cameras, ready to snap photos of loved ones who crossed the finish line. Only 26 minutes and 54 seconds into the race, the first place winner, Steve Schmid, crossed the finish line. Close behind him, Tim Dahms and Jordan Freking crossed with total run times of 27 minutes and 21 seconds and 28 minutes and 35 seconds, respectively.

RUN FROM 4B not like we start them off with a marathon and it works well with the entire family.” Children of all ages came to the run with their parents. One mother and her two daughters ran the two and a half mile course in less than 25 minutes. “I’m so proud of you two,” exclaimed the mother as she hugged her daughters at the finish, while a group of onlookers looked amazed at the accomplishment of the trio. “I think this program is awesome,” said Fuller. “Sometimes we’re working out by ourselves, getting in our routine. But this is a great chance to work out as a family unit.” Major Michael Skaggs, a tank officer with Marine Corps Forces Special

Operations Command, ran two and a half miles with his daughter on his back. Even with the extra weight, Skaggs completed the course in less than 24 minutes. “You have to finished first,” said his daughter, adding some motivation. “I like that we’re doing something with the family that’s fitness orientated,” said Skaggs. “It’s never too early to teach kids that fitness is important, and it’s something (families) can do together that’s fun.” Staff with the Exceptional Family Member Program also joined in on the fun, wearing matching shirts, to help participants promote a sense of community within their housing area. Both the EFMP and the Tarawa Terrace Community Center encourage

Runners take off from the start of the Hampstead Turkey Trot 8K at the Hampstead Kiwanis Park, Saturday. The 8K race raised money to help pave trails and pathways at the Hampstead Kiwanis Park and also boasted a two-mile fun run and a half-mile kid’s sprint. Instead of trophies, winners were presented with functional gifts. The overall and overall master’s winners were given plaques with gravy ladles shaped like turkey’s attached to them. Other prizes included grab bags with various exercise aids in them, shirts and sponsor prizes. To celebrate their participation, children who ran in any of the races were given a small trophy.

“I like to give functional things,” explained DePue. “Even the ladles and the plaques are functional. We fastened the ladles to the plaques so that they can be taken off and used on Thanksgiving Day as part of the feast.” The money raised as a result of the Turkey Trot will directly benefit the Hampstead Kiwanis Park. The fundraising effort uses its earnings

to help pave the walking trails and paths around the park. Looking forward to next year’s run, DePue, who will not be available, is hoping to pass it off into the safe hands of the committee who has helped her with previous Turkey Trot runs. “It’s gone well so far and I think it has real potential to keep on going in the right hands,” said DePue. “I’ve learned

that you’re never going to be able to please everybody, but if the majority is happy, why change something that works well? If you’ve got everybody happy and enjoying themselves, I’ll be pleased with the outcome.” Editor’s note: For more information on the Hampstead Kiwanis Park or the Turkey Trot, visit

units and shops to participate in the monthly runs. “The program is a great way to put a marker point on the month where families can get out and exercise with each other,” said Fuller. The theme for each Family Fun Run changes on a monthly basis. Fuller encourages participants to use the theme as an excuse to get creative, design outfits or come up with their own ways to match the monthly fun run themes. The next Tarawa Terrace Community Fun Run will be the Reindeer Trot, which will feature a 5K and one-mile option. The Reindeer Trot is scheduled for Dec. 10.

A family takes part in the Tarawa Terrace Community Fun Run, Saturday, at the Tarawa Terrace housing area aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. POPE FROM 6B Since they had no prior knowledge of what to expect in the team challenges, Pope and Caudill had no time to train as a team or prepare for upcoming situations. When they arrived at a challenge, Pope had approximately two minutes to give instructions and guidance to Caudill. During that two minute timespan before they began their challenge, they also discussed strategy and what would and wouldn’t work for each scenario. As soon as their two minutes were up, Pope sat back, let his partner take the reigns and hoped that Caudill enjoyed himself. “My overall goal was just to let him do what he wanted to do and guide him when I could. I let him have a blast with it,” explained Pope. “It’s not something he gets to do every day. “All of us have encountered things like the situations we were being forced into before, but none of the civilians have seen anything like it,” continued Pope. “That was why I thought it was important to just

let him take the reigns and run with it, as long as he was willing. I just tried to follow his lead, teach him a little bit as we went through each challenge and give him a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience.” A learning experience is exactly what the reality show proved to be, for all the contestants involved. While Pope did not learn anything about combat that his training with the Marine Corps had not already taught him, he did learn from the experiences of those around him. The civilians involved in the team challenges learned what service members do on a daily basis, whether in training or combat. “The civilians got a taste of what we do,” said Pope. “They learned what life is like as an operator, from the bad food to learning to shoot to getting to drive over uncertain terrain and I really think they gained a greater appreciation of the military and a better understanding of what we do for a living.” The most important thing Pope learned was not taught by his military competitors or by the various combat scenarios he found himself

in over the course of the show, but rather by his civilian counterparts who joined him and the other nine competitors for the last part of the reality competition. “I think all of the operators left with the understanding that there are still civilians out there who love and respect what the military does,” said Pope. “That was one of the most influential things I learned out there and I’m going to remember that now that I’m done with the show.” Pope said that he would jump at the chance to be involved in another segment of the “Maximum Warrior” competition. “I’d do it a second time,” said Pope. “It was a great experience to be with guys who do the same thing I do, from all four branches. Nobody that I met out there was the least bit arrogant or cocky and everybody was willing to share their experiences and tips. We were all humble enough to learn from each other.” The “Maximum Warrior” competition can still be viewed online. For more information, visit

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune leadership held a ribbon cutting ceremony, Friday, for the first of five new child development centers, a 24-room, 300 max capacity facility aboard the MCB Camp Lejeune Tarawa Terrace II housing area for children ages six weeks to five years.

First of five new childcare development centers opens CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The need for childcare aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is an ongoing concern for service members and their families, but with five new child development centers opening by next year, the wait list for care should shorten dramatically. Friday, base leadership held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the first of the new CDCs. The 24-room, 300 max capacity facility aboard Tarawa Terrace II for children ages six weeks to five years old will be fully operational after the Thanksgiving holiday.

The new centers have been in planning since the 1990s, but the need was exacerbated in 2008 when 65,000 Marines and families moved to the area as part of the “Grow the Force” initiative. Since then, waiting lists for spaces have been up to a year long. Marla Talley, the family care branch manager, Marine Corps Community Services, said many families choose to bypass the system entirely, choosing civilian providers instead. “They are probably being cared for in unauthorized, potentially dangerous situations,” said Talley. “Our goal is to clear the wait list to be able to place people immediately when they

come in and we’ll be able to do that for the next few months. We’re hoping to give families options for quality, affordable care.” By the end of 2012, the base will have 1,900 childcare spaces in total. While an estimated 3,000 spaces are needed to meet the demand for families aboard the base, Tally said the new centers mean a promising start. “What we really hope is that it will offer those people with the really young children quality childcare,” Talley added. Seventy percent of facility spaces are for children two and under with 56 infant spaces for children ages 6 weeks to one year old and 80 spaces for chil-

dren one to two years old. “We encourage our military families to explore all of their options. We just want to be one of the options that they consider,” said Talley. “Our fees here are based on total family income. For the most part, our fees are less than or comparable to the what they would be paying in the civilian community.” The centers also offer stateof-the-art energy efficiency devices, skylights, access to outdoor play spaces and top-quality children’s furniture and toys. Talley said the MCB Camp Lejeune childcare program has improved enormously since she stared caring for children in base

facilities in 1989. “I am thrilled to death today that we have high standards and great programs,” she added. Three more centers, including one in the Midway Park housing area that will operate mostly on solar power, are slated to open by January. A series of open houses are also slated for after the holidays. Dates can be found by visiting or calling Resource and Referral at 449-9463 or 449-9552. A job fair will be held at the Tarawa Terrace II Youth Pavilion Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the purpose of hiring 150 to 200 local childcare workers for the new centers.

eMarine allows cyber security in Thanksgiving Marine Corps social network meals available for service members CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

In a recent initiative by Headquarters Marine Corps, units that utilize Internet websites, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, have migrated over to a more secure, comprehensive social networking outlet specifically for the Marine Corps. Per Marine Corps Administrative Message 499/11, units and individual Marines and their families are to employ the use of “eMarine” to discuss or provide information about Corpsspecific topics. “At any given time, we can find multiple (operational security) violations on Marines’ or their spouses’ online profiles,” said Lisa Gleason, the project manager for the creation and implementation of eMarine. “A lot of information can be gathered and used adversely, which is why we’re providing a more secure alternative to traditional social media outlets not open to the public.” eMarine boasts simplicity in its use and navigation of pages and materials when offering such a secure environment for those of the Marine Corps community. Family readiness officers are able to release information to family members more expediently, and unit commanders can issue guidance to those in their commands securely and effectively. Even in its infant stage, eMarine cur-

rently has nearly 50,000 users at press time with many more to follow as word of its implementation reaches all Marine Corps units worldwide. However, the blunt of eMarine’s purpose lies in information regarding deployed Marines and how it is distributed among the spouses back at the homefront. “On occasion, we are able to put together various pieces of information that can reveal a deployed units’ grid coordinates - all from the spouses’ Facebook pages,” said Sean Gilligan, information technician with Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “Almost everyone with an Internet connection has online networking tools such as a Facebook profile, but sometimes people aren’t as careful with their information as they should be.” Beginning as a Marine Corps Forces Pacific initiative, eMarine was offered to Headquarters Marine Corps as an alternative to conventional social networking sites rather than a replacement, due to the Department of the Navy’s authorization of Facebook for unit pages. However, with eMarine on the rise, it is encouraged that previous Facebook pages point users to the new eMarine pages for secure information. “One of the biggest factors about the eMarine program is how, no matter what unit a Marine is attached to, unit-specific information can be found in the same place on the site,” said Ann Crittenden, branch head for Family

Readiness, HQMC. “That standardized look will aid in the Marines and their family members in easily settling into their new units and receiving any needed information.” The initial push of eMarine is intended to be utilized by all units with funded FROs, having the opportunity to build their pages and attend proper training. Full utilization for initial units is expected to be fulfilled by February 2012, where remaining units will then subscribe in the use of eMarine by that summer. “Loose lips sink ships, and that’s never more true than in the cyber world,” said George Dentel, family readiness officer for II Marine Expeditionary Force. “Now, through education and awareness along with this new social networking option, the hundreds of thousands spouses and family members will be able to stay involved with their Marines’ units without compromising security. While their Marine is deployed, they will be able to stay empowered by securely staying in contact with the unit FROs and each other.” While there is national attention on various social media sites’ handling of user privacy, eMarine is the solution to such a problem within the operational world of the Corps. Families will be able to be kept up-to-date with their spouses’ unit while the Marines themselves receive information more effectively.

While plenty of service members are on their way home for the Thanksgiving holiday, there are still plenty of places itching to provide comfort and a slice of home to service members and their families. Through the recreation centers, the USO of North Carolina-Jacksonville center and homes in the community, service members and their families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and neighboring installations will be able to experience a traditional Thanksgiving meal with all of the usual perks, despite being away from home. Active-duty service members, retirees and their families will be welcome to the USO of North Carolina-Jacksonville center, where familiar faces will be cooking up meals for those who visit and for service members who will be working through the holiday. They will be providing traditional feasts for nearly 3,000 people. “It’s a comfortable place to spend the day,” said Deb Fisher, the director of USO-North CarolinaJacksonville. She said people spend the day watching football and some may even head outside to play a game for themselves. There is also TV with children’s programming to keep the younger visitors entertained, along with their usual activities. “There’s a sense of family,” said Fisher. “Everybody’s in a good mood and they forget they’re not SEE THANKSGIVING 2C

Vouchers provide financial relief during holiday season CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN

Every year, thousands of people look forward to the winter holiday season. However, there are many who dread Thanksgiving and Christmas because they can’t afford to give their families the holiday meal they want. The Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Chaplain’s Office, with help from the USO of North CarolinaJacksonville center, can assist those families who need a little help by providing holiday vouchers. Two donations totaling $11,000 for both Thanksgiving and Christmas given to the USO of North Carolina-Jacksonville center made it possible to provide financial relief to Marines and sailors during this holiday season. The USO distributes $25 commissary vouchers to command sergeants major aboard the base to disseminate to service members and their families with

the greatest need. “In spirit of Marines taking care of their own, the sergeants major reach out to the units to identify young Marines and their families who could use a little assistance in providing for a holiday meal,” said Navy Capt. Milton D. Gianulis, Marine Corps Installations Command East command chaplain. Unit leadership should make nominations to their sergeant major. Anyone wanting to apply for a voucher can speak with their chaplain who will make a nomination for them. “Unfortunately, there are not enough resources to get every Marine and sailor a voucher, so priority will be determined by those who have the greatest need,” Gianulis said. “Considerations are rank, number of children and such.” Eligibility to receive a voucher is as follows: • Single-income families of active-duty Marines and sailors, (E-4 and below) with at least one child or other

legal dependants who currently reside with the service member. • Single income families of active-duty Marines and sailors, (E-5) with two or more children or other legal dependents who currently reside with the service member. • Unit leadership may qualify families not otherwise eligible under the above guidance when special financial needs exist. • Unit leadership are encouraged to qualify any family whose sponsor is deployed to combat operations during the holiday period and financial needs exist. “It’s important to share our blessings with those who give so much for our country,” Gianulis said. “The intent is goodwill and holiday cheer.” For more information regarding holiday vouchers, call the MCB Camp Lejeune Chaplain’s Office at 451-8691.

Staff Sgt. Nathyn Purganan of II Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group receives a bag with shells to be laid along the barrier being constructed on a North Carolina shore Nov. 17. He was part of a nine-man group that assisted throughout the day with the construction of a new oyster reef with the North Carolina Coastal Federation.

For many, the best part about Thanksgiving is spending time with loved ones and feasting on the longawaited turkey dinner. After hours of devouring turkey, stuffing and potatoes, there may be little room for desert. Marine Corps Family Team Building hopes to fill what room will be left in the stomachs of many, tomorrow when they gave away thousands of pumpkin pies at the Marine Corps Exchange, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Nov. 18 in support of National Month of the Military Family. More than 11,000 pies, which were stacked high in the back of a

semi truck tractor trailer, were provided by an Eastern United States grocery chain. “It’s awesome to see the support from the local community and (base) programs,” said Staff Sgt. Tifanni M. Hebron, an electrician instructor with Marine Corps Engineer School. “Everybody loves pie.” Patrons who entered the exchange were approached by smiling faces bearing sweet gifts. It seemed as if everybody shopping had pies in their hands, which is not a usual site to see at a department store, especially to those unaware about the giveaway. Patrons, in “drive-thru” mode, even lined up next to the truck in their vehicles picked up pies from their windows. “My husband loves pumpkin pie,”

said a woman who was speaking to a MCTFB employee. “I’ve seen him eat a whole pie as a meal.” Jessica Ross, a department support trainer with MCFTB, said it was a way of showing appreciation for the sacrifices and hardship that military families take on and overcome. The giveaway began at 9 a.m. and ended at 5 p.m. Marines and sailors brought boxes and bags of pies back to their units and shops to help quicken the distribution, but there were so many pies left, the giveaway continued on to Saturday. “We’re here to say thank you to the service members and their families,” said Eileen McCallum, family readiness program trainer with MCFTB. “It’s important to recognize their unwavering commitment.”

Service members help build oyster reef PFC. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Service members from II Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune were able to spend the morning of Nov. 17 helping the local ecology. Through the North Carolina Coastal Federation, a nonprofit organization that protects and restores the coast of North Carolina through education, advocacy and habitat preservation and restoration, Marines and sailors were able to spend several hours assisting with the construction of an oyster reef. The reef acts as a living shoreline, a barrier in the water that

helps fight shore erosion, while enhancing the habitat, according to the N.C. Coastal Federation website. Ted Wilgis, a biologist with the N.C. Coastal Federation, said baby oysters would attach to shells placed in netted bags that are laid on the coast forming a living reef that would slow down waves, therefore protecting the shoreline from erosion. Volunteers, like Staff Sgt. Corey Reyes with II MHG, said they enjoyed North Carolina and that it was nice to be able to help out and show their appreciation. They helped carry the netted bags full of oysters to the water through wheelbarrows, where they were stacked forming a line along the shore. SEE OYSTER 3C

Marines with Wounded Warrior Battalion – East enjoy a lunch provided by Purple Heart Homes, a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding service-connected wounded veterans, during their appreciation luncheon at the WWBn-East barracks aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Nov. 16.

In a recent edition of Time magazine, Joe Kline’s story made the cover as he told of young veterans seeking and making opportunities for themselves after departing active duty. He dubbed them the “new greatest generation,” having dutifully served their country and later joining the ranks of America’s businessmen and women. “I feel the Marines here are just that – America’s new greatest generation,” said Vicki Thomas, member of Purple Heart Homes, a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding service-connected wounded veterans. “This event is a tribute to that truth and our way of recognizing all that they have done and con-

On any given day at the Midway Park Theater, groups of couples and families come up to the ticket booth, where, for a modest fee, members of the military community could view popular movies. They were able to enjoy dates, or simply a night out with their friends. Now, those who live aboard the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune housing area will have to travel to the Base Theater. The theater closed Monday, and will not reopen until next summer due to much needed renovations. “When you walk in (next summer), you will not (be able to) believe the changes,” said Charles Miller, the manager of the movie theaters aboard MCB Camp Lejeune and the base’s housing areas. The theater was inadequate, said Miller.

With dedicated staff working through the holiday, the recreation centers will have military leaders serving traditional meals, with the exception of Camp Johnson and Camp Geiger, which will be providing a casual approach with pizzas and subs as most service members there will have eaten their meals at the chow halls. Through a National Football League all-access football program and with plenty of TV’s, the recreation centers will have a multitude of ways to catch the day’s sports. They will also provide their usual activities and services. Marines and sailors will have other service members around for some camaraderie. “We’re very happy to provide service members with a home away from home,” said Josepha Cordero, the recreational specialist manager with the Central Recreation Center aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. “We’ll make it their special day.” Nearly 300 service members will be going to the homes of local families in nearby communities. Families from New Bern, Wallace, and Wilmington will be hosting them for the day. The individual communities will welcome the troops in unique ways. The Wallace community, for instance, will have the service members escorted to a neighborhood breakfast by a fire truck and the Rolling Thunders, a patriotic motorcycle club. The families are not only opening up their homes for the meal, but for the day, taking part in various activities and meeting new people. “(Service members) come back and they have new families,” said Susan Goodrich, the director of MCB Camp Lejeune’s Single Marine Program. “Some have carried on their relationships with the families since the first year (of the program).” Even for those who may be away from their family or unable to host a meal of their own this Thanksgiving, the base and local communities will offer many opportunities to celebrate the holiday with others.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. OYSTER FROM 2C “We couldn’t do it without volunteers,� said Wilgis. “The coastal federation has used the Marines on several projects. They’ve been a wonderful source of volunteer. They come in good numbers and they work very hard as a team. They’re a lot of fun to work with.� The Marines were able to be there due to some downtime they had between deployments. They wanted to spend that time volunteering, said Maj. Marius Harrison, with II MHG. “It’s a team building exercise for the guys,� said Harrison.

Harrison found that volunteering exposes his Marines to experiences they would not be able to take part in otherwise. He believes the community gives a lot to service members and that it’s good to give back. “It’s an opportunity for them to learn something different,� said Harrison. “If you have the opportunity and you have the time, there are a lot of projects within the community to be a part of.� The Marines took pride in their work, working alongside of members of the community to create the reef. “Maybe a couple of

It is with those feelings of gratitude and recognition that brought PHH, along with the other contributing organizations, to MCB Camp Lejeune to pay respects to the wounded warriors. “This isn’t about promoting an event or meeting someone’s agenda, but just to simply say thank you to these men and women and let them know they are truly appreciated for their sacrifices,� said Gallina. “We hope to inspire them to know that life goes on after leaving active duty and that they are never alone.� From Marines with no visible injuries to those who use canes or wheelchairs to

Yet, while all the members of the battalion were injured in one way or another, all were smiling and conversing freely with one another and those of PHH. “This is really the first major event where an organization came and did this much for us,� said Sgt. Brian McPherson, former rifleman with 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division and current member of WWBn-East. “Not only does it get these guys out of their rooms and interacting with everyone else, but it shows that once we transition into civilians, there are people out there to help us.� While these Marines may never be rid of their Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or receive a fully-functional limb, they have been given a better peace of mind following the day’s event, for after serving their country and giving more than is ever asked for, there will never be a shortage of people willing to assist them once they hang up their uniforms and look toward the horizon of civilian life.

Frosty the Snowman may not be visiting any time soon, but it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas. Thousands of visitors went walking in a winter wonderland as they entered Onslow Caregivers, Inc.’s ninth annual Festival of Trees at the American Legion Building in Jacksonville, N.C., Saturday through Monday. More than 60 uniquely-decorated Christmas trees transformed the building into a dream in which any sugarplum fairy would be proud to dance. “This is the only fundraiser we do,” said Shirley Moore, the event coordinator. “All the proceeds go to meet the patients’ needs.” According to Moore, Onslow Caregivers, Inc., is a nonprofit organization that was formed to augment the services to Onslow County Home Health and Hospice patients. “We buy food, medicine, pay bills and try to meet the needs that are identified,” she explained. “We give because we care.” The act of giving tends to be highlighted more during the holiday season, but organizers of the event have been hard at work for months. “It takes a full year to make this work,” said Charlie Clements, treasurer for Onslow Caregivers, Inc. “The proceeds usually average between $15,000 and $20,000. Without that, there would be many people who would go with medicine they need.” kingdom was created by several The holiday SEE TREES 7D

‘Footloose’ remake keeps dancing fresh, cool Now playing at Camp Lejeune “FOOTLOOSE” (PG-13) “Footloose” is a musical and performing arts film, a remake of the 1980s classic. The movie tells the story of a small town where dancing is outlawed. Newcomer Kenny Wormald, a former backup dancer for Justin Timberlake, steps into the role of Ren MacCormack, (originally made famous by Kevin Bacon), a city kid who moves to a small town where rock ‘n’ roll and dancing have been banned. When Ren is transported from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont, he encounters a very oppressed community that has recently suffered a great loss. After five local teens, coming home from a local dance event, died in a tragic car accident, the town passed a strict ordinance that prohibits both dancing and loud music. Not one to stay away from trouble, Ren challenges the law and begins to revitalize the town and its young folks. In the process, he falls for the rebellious Ariel Moore, played by the “Dancing with the Stars” professional, Julianne Hough (“Burlesque”), who just happens to be the daughter of the local official who passed the ban on dancing. Dennis Quaid (“Legion”) co-stars as the upstanding Reverend Shaw Moore and Andie Mac-

Dowell (“Monte Carlo”) plays his supportive wife, the parents of Ariel. Miles Teller (“Rabbit Hole”) plays Willard, Ren’s local sidekick, who steals the show. Director Craig Brewer (“Black Snake Moan,” “Hustle & Flow”) takes the helm for this winning remake of the 1984 popular teen flick. He also helped write the screenplay for this musical romance, staying true to the original spirit of the film. “Footloose” is an enjoyable dance movie that pays homage to the original pop culture phenomenon. This remake, where the actors do their own fierce dancing and the music has been updated, does not disappoint and should bring back many fond memories for the older fans and maybe make new ones in the process. However, the original “Footloose” cannot be replaced. Now playing in Jacksonville “J. EDGAR” (R) “J. Edgar” is biographical view of the life of the controversial and secretive head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover. The film follows the man as he made friends, and even more enemies, while keeping several secrets on his way to becoming the first director of the FBI. As the face of law enforcement in America for almost 50 years, Hoover was often credited with making the FBI what it is

today, an efficient, crimefighting organization shrouded in secrecy. Hoover founded the organization in 1935 and remained director until his death in 1972. During his lifetime, Hoover would rise to the most powerful man in America, and as head of the FBI, he would stop at nothing to protect his country. Through eight presidents and three wars, Hoover waged battle against threats both real and perceived, often bending the rules to keep his countrymen safe. His methods were at one ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted if ever elusive, prize. Leonardo DiCaprio (“Inception,” “The Aviator,” “The Departed,”) stars as Hoover. Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his

Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) co-stars as Clyde Tolson, Hoover’s protégé and constant companion, and former FBI associate director. The two were supposed to have had a rumored love affair. Naomi Watts (“Dream House,” “Fair Game”) co-stars as Helen Gandy, his long-time personal secretary, who remained loyal to Hoover to the end. Judi Dench (“Jane Eyre”) plays Hoover’s over-protective mother, Anna Marie, who served as his inspiration and conscience. Her passing crushed him tremendously.

Holiday shopping season begins at annual craft fair PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Millions of products ranging from picture frames to decorative items are mass produced by companies and sold in stores all over the world. Machines and assembly lines make such feats possible, but when a craft is created by a single pair of hands, the passion of that individual is expressed in their creations. Artisans of many talents and backgrounds gathered for the annual Hidden Talents Fall Craft Fair at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Saturday and Sunday, to display and sell their works of art. Upon arriving, the difficulty in finding a parking space alone was a clear sign of how immense and popular the event has

become over the years. Inside, more than 65 crafters set up booths and showcased all of their work. There were many items to see, most of which were handmade, to include things like Christmas trees and ornaments, jewelry, pottery and much more. “I’m really enjoying the event,” said Carol Milnichuk, military spouse who attend the fair. “There’s a lot of variety and there’s something here for everyone.” All of the crafters were affiliated with the military, many of who were retirees and spouses. “I love the fact that I get to work from home,” Karen Holliday, jewelry crafter at the event. “It gives me more time to be with my family, and if we move it’s not a problem because I can take my work with me.” For Holliday, her hobby was also a way of

maintaining a stable job, with the perks of being with her loved ones. She was one of a hand full of jewelry designers at the fair. Anxious shoppers maneuvered slowly through crowds, bumping elbows every now and then in search of a piece that caught their eyes. Many of the craftsmen pursued the path of making their hobbies a privately owned business. However, for Donna Ferguson, who makes homemade, all natural soap, it was a way of providing a solution to a family challenge. “My daughter is allergic to the chemicals used in commercial soaps, so I did my research and began making my own soap naturally,” said Ferguson. “It saves us money and it’s safe for everyone to use.” Craftsmen explained the techniques and materials used in their creations

as curious shoppers took a closer look at the details. “There are a lot of talented people here,” said Mary Jo Rueter, a military spouse who attended event. “It’s great to be out here supporting our military community.” Hidden Talents organization, sponsored by the Officers’ Wives’ Club, helps to raise money for scholarships available to spouses and graduating students of military members. “It’s really nice to see so many people here,” said Sandy Foster, president of the Officers’ Wives’ Club. “This is an amazing event. When people know that the proceeds are going to a good cause, they are definitely more generous.” Last year, they donated more than $15,000 in scholarship funds. For more information, call 451-2658.

Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving, one day that our forebears set aside for us to reflect on our many blessings and give due thanks to God. One and all will celebrate in their own way, but you can be sure that there will be liberty, turkey, football, and much more involved. Since Sept. 11, 2001, I think it is important that we all take the time to give thanks for those who are right now “in the fight” and not able to celebrate the day with their loved ones. So many of you who read this are among those brave souls who have been there and know the meaning of giving thanks at all times and in every circumstance. The shining example of giving thanks at all times and in every circumstance comes from Paul, who said, “If God is with us, who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:32). He knew how to live his life in such a way that circumstances never controlled him, he controlled them. He allowed God to be in control through his faith. He knew he was never alone. The Lord was always with him because he was always with the Lord. This is inner strength – the power of God to work through a mere mortal who lives with constant and strong faith. Even when Paul was in prison and faced an imminent, humiliating and torturous execution, he maintained his faith and hope in a living God. In fact, he often was found giving thanks and praising God so much so that even his jailers were impressed and accepted the Christian faith of Paul. He gives us the same inspiration and encouragement. Listen to his words. “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus...I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content. I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound, in any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and want. I can do all things in him who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:4-7, 11-13). Paul was a remarkable person. It is the Holy Spirit that strengthened him and enabled him in every circumstance to give thanks – not just one day a year – and it is the same Spirit that can strengthen us if we have the same faith as Paul. This power fortified him and can fortify us not merely to go on but to live each day creatively and to live in gratitude. It comes from allowing the Holy Spirit to control our lives, and when God is in control, we have the power and ability to turn any adversity into an opportunity. This Thanksgiving, let us not merely give thanks to God for our evident and material blessings, but for the spiritual strength and hope he gives us through the sustaining power of his glorious resurrection.

Santa watches to see who will make his naughty and nice list as he travels down Western Boulevard in the annual Holiday Parade in Jacksonville, N.C., Saturday.

Parade ushers in holiday spirits AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor


othing brings people together like the holidays, and though the Thanksgiving turkey has yet to be served, the Christmas spirit has arrived. Thousands of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Onslow County residents lined the sidewalks of Western Boulevard for the annual Holiday Parade in Jacksonville, N.C., Saturday. “It’s a big, happy parade,” said Col. Daniel J. Lecce, commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, who rode atop a convertible and waved to the crowd. Residents received a sneak peak into Santa’s workshop as each of the 161 parade entries, includ-

ing 41 floats from local businesses and organizations, created their renditions of Old Saint Nick’s headquarters for this year’s theme. Each float was unique in their approach, using everything from gingerbread houses and Christmas character costumes to clowns and pirate ships, but the theme also allowed for a sense of community to shine through. “For a lot of people, coming to the parade is a tradition,” explained Jessica Romero, a member of the Convergys float, which won first place in the professional entries category. “It shows what the community has to offer and what we’re about. It captures the holiday spirit.” The 2nd Marine Division Band from MCB Camp Lejeune led the colorful event with a holi-

day musical fanfare that delighted the crowds. Not far behind, local high school bands, who recently joined together for the Veterans Day parade, took their individual turns in the spotlight and played familiar Christmas tunes like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” The annual community event may be steeped in tradition, but the seeing the excitement on the faces of children who spot Santa making his way down the street, never gets old. “They’re coming,” Luke Hoffman, a local child, exclaimed, jumping up and down with excitement. “They’re getting louder.” The large crowds departed with the flame of Christmas sufficiently sparked as Kris Kringle waved his goodbye and wished everyone a happy holiday.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. TREES FROM 1D volunteers, including some Marines, who set up the Sweet Shop, the Gift Shop, the life-sized gingerbread house, the silent auction and the event’s newest feature, the book nook, where visitors could buy copies of donated books for insanely low prices. “We couldn’t do this without the community and military assistance,” Moore acknowledged. “We have a healthy respect for the Marines. They’ve helped us from the very beginning.” Nothing spreads holiday cheer like music. Under the direction of Nancy St. Charles, Christmas tunes were sung with care in the hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon be there – and he was. Santa looked on as several local singers and dancers performed throughout the weekend. “The entertainment is really good this year,” Moore commented. Of course, the stars of the show were the trees themselves. Sponsors start decorating as early as they are allowed, scoping out the competition in the hopes of winning the coveted People’s Choice Award. “It’s a lot of fun to watch,” said Clements. Members of Rolling Thunder NC-5 and the Military Order of the Purple Heart Beirut Memorial Chapter 642 set up their trees in the heart of the festival. The memorial trees are set up in memory of service members from North Carolina who are missing in action, have


been killed in action or who have been awarded a Purple Heart medal. “Our tree isn’t just decorated – it has symbolism to it,” explained Holly Boles, a military spouse and member of Rolling Thunder NC-5. “There are 41 sets of dog tags on there.” While there were several trees honoring lost loved ones and service members, some organizations just had fun, decorating their trees in so many bright colors, ribbons and ornaments that the branches couldn’t even be seen. “We’ve been participating for years,” said Rachel Nelson, who was with the Onslow County Partnership for Children. “It’s actually one of my favorite events. How could you not like Christmas trees and music?” The partnership provided a children’s area where kids could write and mail letters to Santa Claus and make ornaments to hang on a tree that will be given to a family in the community who may not be able to have one otherwise. The festival wrapped up Monday with a senior citizens and children’s day. Moore said there were around 1,000 kids who came through. With another successful year under their belts, the committee is already looking forward to the future. “I think this is one of the nicest Christmas events Onslow County has,” Moore Photo by Amy Binkley noted. “People come year after year.” This holiday season, take a lesson Shay Marshburn belts a crowd-pleasing Christmas tune during a performance from Onslow Caregivers, Inc. – make at Onslow Caregivers, Inc.’s ninth annual Festival of Trees at the American Legion Building in Jacksonville, N.C., Sunday. giving a tradition.
