26th Marine Expeditionary Unit


arines with the 26th Marine Expeditionar y Unit were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, to join them abord USS Wasp Nov. 5. “After the commandant’s arrival, he left to talk to the (Port Authority of New York and New Jersey), and to see first hand the destruction of Hurricane Sandy,” said Sgt. Maj. Todd M. Parisi, sergeant major of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit. “This isn’t as simple as, ‘hey, there is a need and we have people here who want to help so lets put them on the ground,’ this is a larger, more complex type of situation of relationships and dynamics. Things have to be done right. The Marine Corps is geared and poised to execute immediately, but not everything happens that fast. However, today was a great success.” The commandant’s arrival, along with Sgt. Maj. Michael P.

Barrett, sergeant major of the Marine Corps, praised the Marines and sailors for their continued efforts with humanitarian relief around the tri-state area in response to the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy. “Sgt. Maj. Barrett was speaking of the lineage, and redefining the importance that people never forget how important this place is, where we are at, and the legacy we have, the awesome and magnificent things this unit has done and for being well known across the face of the Corps,” said Parisi. The hasty mobilization of the Marines and their awe-inspiring presence gave people of the tristate area hope not tangible a few days prior. “Being ready and poised at a moment’s notice was really his message,” said Parisi. “(The 26th MEU) rapidly processed and pulled together in virtually a 24 hour notice, and got up here, in essence, ahead of everybody. We caught everybody off guard – the Marines have landed. Like the newspapers said, the situation is well in hand.” Many of the Marines on board

were given the chance to fly to shore to see the areas devastated by the hurricane and were afforded the opportunity to help in any way possible. “Today I was assisting the New York Sanitation Department by clearing Staten Island’s, Colonial Street of garbage and helping any citizens who had any trouble getting debris from their house to their curb,” Gunnery Sgt. Christopher P. Pilats, a radio chief for Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, currently reinforcing the 26th MEU. The areas around the Staten Island area flooded, lost power, access to gasoline and in some cases have limited supplies of water and food. “My experience was humbling. In general, New Yorkers are very resilient, self reliant, independent and strong minded people,” said Pilats. “It kind of sets you back and makes you look at what you have and all your comforts when you see the New Yorkers in turmoil - you have families, kids, and elders, who cant live in their house and have lost all their belongings.”

Pilats said the Marines are looking for any ways possible to help and they are doing it with a proud sense of satisfaction for helping fellow Americans in times of need. “The Marines want to keep rolling,” said Pilats. “I could tell they were a little upset we didn’t get there earlier today so we could have more time to help. They wanted to do more; they actually wanted to stay later when the day ended.” The help by the Marines was well received by the local citizens, many expressing their deep sense of pride and appreciation for the work and aid the Marines were providing. “The locals were ecstatic and excited to see us,” said Pilats. “The sanitation department and police department were very accepting with open arms when they saw us. Their philosophy was simple, do any little bit you can to help. It wasn’t like the civilians put their hands off either, they were right next to us helping, and you could tell they were so happy to be there with us the whole time.” The 26th MEU operates con-

tinuously across the globe, providing the president and unified combatant commanders with a forward-deployed, sea-based quick reaction force. The MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response, and limited contingency operations. They are slated to deploy in 2013.

In the period after deployment but before predeployment training, a Marine Expeditionary Unit typically sends Marines to advanced schools, catches up on annual qualifications or rebuilds their offices with new personnel. The 22nd MEU is taking their dwell time a step further. With roughly a year before predeployment training begins, the Marines and sailors of the 22nd MEU took advantage of the extended dwell time to not only help prepare Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa for their upcoming deployment, but to also get ready for their own deployment. “We were afforded the great opportunity to reset in some regards,” said Capt. Greg Duesterhaus, supply officer for the 22nd MEU. According to Duesterhaus, the section leaders took the time to identify the needs and wants of their respective areas, reviewed lessons learned from previous deployments and provided a list of gear, software and training to increase MEU efficiency and credibility.

General James F. Amos, the 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps and also the guest of honor for the evening, gives a speech to those gathered at the Goettge Field House for the 2nd Marine Division 237th Marine Corps Birthday Ball.


2nd Marine Division

Fully clad in their finest dress blue uniforms, officers and staff noncommissioned officers with 2nd Marine Division gathered at the Goettge Field House to celebrate the Marine Corps’ 237th Birthday Nov. 8. The night was young and the observance of traditions surrounding the birthday was deeply rooted in the Marines. The evening began with marching of the Colors and the reading of a message from General John A. Lejeune, the 13th commandant of the Marine Corps. The message is a reminder to the Marines of the honorable service of those who

came before them. Next came the cake cutting ceremony, which represents a renewal of each Marines’ commitment to the Corps. The first piece of cake, cut with the traditional Mameluke sword, was presented to the guest of honor, the 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps General James F. Amos. The second piece was presented to the oldest Marine present, Master Gunnery Sgt. Jerry H. Morris, the battalion maintenance chief for 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. The piece was then passed to the youngest Marine present as a symbol of the passing of knowledge. The youngest Marine was 2nd Lt. Henry L.

Rodgers, a motor transport platoon commander with Headquarters and Service Company, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. Following the cake ceremony, a video was played of the commandant’s birthday message,which filled the field house with motivation. The bellowing voices of the commandant and the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Michael P. Barrett, reminded the Marines of their accomplishments during the Corps’ rich history. When the screen went dark and the lights came up, the microphone was passed to Brig. Gen. James W. Lukeman, the 2nd Marine Division commanding general.

“We (2nd Marine Division) have Marines and sailors all over the world right now,” said Lukeman. “They continue to do exactly what the nation asked and they do it magnificently every time.” Lukeman then introduced the evening’s guest of honor. “I get to brag about you almost every single day, either in the Pentagon or in front of the press,” mentioned Amos. “The things that makes us different than any other service is because of who we are and our rich heritage of those who went before us. We don’t forget the 1,223 Marines who were killed in action in both Iraq and Afghanistan and a big portion came from this division.”

The uplifting speech gave light and purpose to the Marine Corps birthday celebration, remembering those who fought valiantly and could only attend the ball in spirit. “We celebrate and put our spiffy uniforms on, and beside the fact we feel pretty cool when we have them on, we do it and come here in remembrance of those who are gone,” said Amos. The evening’s festivities came to a close with the 2nd Marine Division Band playing five selections including the “Guadalcanal March,” and “Follow Me.” As the band marched off the Marines settled in for a celebratory dinner with friends and family, yet the words of the commandant

still resounded inside the field house as a reminder of what makes the Corps so great. “We are different than any other service,” said Amos. “Its nights like tonight we remind ourselves of it. We toast those Marines who fought side by side with you but are not among us. This is a great occasion to remember exactly who we are. I can’t tell you how proud I am. I want to thank you for serving and thank our family members for their faithfulness. Ladies and gentlemen, remember why we are here tonight. I want you to enjoy every aspect of this. God bless every single one of you, happy birthday Marines and Semper Fidelis.”

The 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group detachment of Marines in New York garnered the attention of many military officials with their work in Breezy Point, N.Y., while working in a Defense Support to Civil Authorities mission to clean up the neighborhood and help the residents who lost so much in the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. United States Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter visited Breezy Point to see the joint-service work for himself, while Marine Corps and Army officers informed him of the mission’s progress. Maj. Craig Clarkson, commanding officer of the 8th ESB, 2nd MLG

detachment, talked to Carter about the progress of the neighborhood and explained how they divided the area of operation into different sectors and sent out small teams of service members to each zone to maximize effectiveness. Clarkson also relayed the residents’ gratitude to Carter, explaining how the locals, many of whom lost their houses in the hurricane, are all very supportive of the mission. Carter was excited to see the operation first-hand. “We follow, from afar, what you all do everyday,” he said. “You can’t always be sure what you’re hearing is true until we can come and see for ourselves. Everything I’ve seen is consistent with what we’re hearing.” Carter also talked to some residents directly, and they expressed their

thanks for having a military presence in Breezy Point to help with the debris cleanup. “You are making an enormous difference,” said Carter while talking to a group of service members. “It’s amazing what our military does anywhere, anytime and for any purpose. The tremendous capability of our department to be able to offer you all to our own country in its time of need is a wonderful feeling.” Army officials escorted Carter around the Breezy Point neighborhood so he could visually see the work for himself, and he took the opportunity to thank the service members every chance he had. “You have our gratitude and are a tremendous source of pride,” said Carter. “We are extremely proud and grateful of the work you’ve been doing.”

Marines are amphibious in nature. It’s one of the things to set them apart and above any other fighting force in the world; a legacy of spilled blood, and hard fought and hard won ground on beaches a world over. But not every beach landing they make is for the purpose of carrying warfare to a foreign country. Sometimes, they put the capability to work to help the people of America themselves in our own homeland. Marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit landed in Rockaway, a neighborhood of Queens, N.Y., to assist with disaster relief operations in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The area was ravaged by the storm; entire blocks ripped off their foundations, alleys and streets clogged by the remnants of houses and porches. “It’s a horrible sight, and I feel bad for all the people who live here. I know it takes a toll on them,” said Lance Cpl. James Partain, an engineer with Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, currently reinforcing the 26th MEU. Power lines are out, streets are washed out, and until recovery operations began, three feet of standing water covered the entire area. But clean up operations began. Marines with 8th Engineer Support Battalion, stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, began pumping water out of the drowned area as soon as they were able. Marines from the 26th MEU landed today to assist by clearing out the debris clogging alleys and streets, breaking up larger pieces of detritus with axes and chainsaws and moving the remnants into piles along the roads to get collected. “It’s makes us feel great, all of us out here helping out. We’re happy to do it,” said Partain. “What we’re doing is offering these pump teams mobility into those areas. Whether it be moving things out of the way so they can access it, or whatever the case may be, we’re ensuring they can get to those pump sites,” said 1st Lt. Ryan Holland, engineer officer with BLT 3rd Bn., 2nd Marines. Marines worked with locals from the area to help restore access to flooded areas for the pump teams to clear. “It feels good. One team, one fight; we’re happy to be out here working with other branches of the military,” said Partain, referring to the sailors from the amphibious support ships USS Wasp and USS San Antonio, as well SEE QUEENS 2C

merica stands tall on the shoulders of its warriors. Through every battle and conflict in its history, the nation rallies around those who fight for them, risk everything and return home to lives scarred by war. Thanks may be slow in coming, but for those who’ve earned the title of veteran, it’s better late than never. “All veterans fight for something greater than themselves,” explained John Bryant Jr., commander of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 16. “Today, we honor the fallen and thank the ones who were fortunate to make it home.” Bryant addressed the large crowd of active-duty and retired service members, their families and members of the community, during the annual Veterans Day ceremony at the DAV hall in Jacksonville Nov. 12. “It’s so important for everyone to be here,” he said. “This crowd amazed me. I’m so thankful veterans came together to celebrate with each other.” The impressive span of generations was not lost on those in attendance. From World War II veterans to members of the Young Marines, honor was given to the brave men and women in uniform. Retired Col. Paul O’Toole Jr., master of ceremonies, stirred up feelings of camaraderie before the formal observance began by encouraging the audience to share memories of the veterans in their lives or their personal stories of serving. After taking the helm of the event, O’Toole introduced Pastor Chris Phillips who gave the invocation followed by the national anthem sung by Nancy Howard. “There’s a principle – give honor to whom honor is due,” Phillips replied when asked why having a Veterans Day ceremony is important. “When we sow seeds of honor and respect for our military, we reap a blessed military.” Veterans Day, originally known as Armistice Day, was established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 to celebrate the returning American troops from their first foreign war. Decades later, the day continues to serve as a reminder of the ongoing battle for freedom fought for by service members of all military branches. “Twenty-two million living Americans today have distinguished themselves by their service in uniform,” proclaimed Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, in his official Veterans Day message, read by Peter Franco during the ceremony. “Their devotion and sacrifice have been the bedrock of our sovereignty SEE VETERANS 4D

Calm seas help anglers snag coastal sciaenids

Last week was another spectacular week of fall fishing. With the sciaenid family running up and down the coast, anglers experienced no problem filling their coolers and buckets to the brim with delicious fish. Red and black drum, speckled trout, gray trout and sea mullet were caught in abundance, exhibiting fall fishing at its very best. The calm weather and gentle seas were conducive to jetty fishing. The trout and drum bite were on fire as anglers raced to the local rock jetties to try their hand at catching anything they could. Anglers found it easy to reach the speckled trout and drum limits at the Camp Lookout rocky jetty, and filled the jetty quickly. Using baits like the Gulp! white shrimp with the chartreuse tail, they were quick to reel in sizable catches of drum and trout, all of which were plenty large enough to keep. Other jetty action included the rock jetty behind Shackleford Banks, the Ft. Macon rock jetty, the Radio Island rock jetty and the submerged jetty near the Coast Guard Station at Ft. Macon. Fish were a little smaller than a few weeks

ago but were still caught in abundance all around the Crystal Coast. I heard of good red drum action at Artificial Reef 315. Other drum and trout hot spots included the surf along Shackleford Island and the Bogue Banks. Last week the drum action was nothing less than spectacular at the Emerald Isle Point. Unfortunately, almost all the drum were below the 18–inch slot minimum. On light tackle, these fish were never more fun to catch than last weekend. The group I was fishing with used soft plastics or Gulp! baits on a lead jig–head. Since nearly all the fish were being released, we mashed down the barbs for a quick and painless release. During our fishing expedition we hooked a few bluefish and a couple of speckled trout large enough to keep. We even hooked two striped mullet, which surprised us since we thought they were large drum. The inside–waters speckled trout bite is still going great. Trout were found in all the typical places last week. From the Haystacks to the Middle Marches, anglers were hooking trout without too much trouble. Both New River and White Oak River, as well as the Bogue Sounds Creek, saw lots of speckled trout action last weekend. Some citation–sized fish were even reeled into boats and onto shore in Broad Creek. Spooners, Pelletier and Gayles creeks

were also hot spots for trout, and the Neuse River and Hancock creek were full of speckled trout. Last week showed larger numbers of small speckled trout in the mix along the piers and surf. Some long–time local anglers usually associate this with the ocean and surf speckled trout season coming to a close, however this year it is hard to believe, given the large numbers of speckled trout anglers are reeling in now. I will keep my eye on things in the next few weeks. Gray trout are still biting in the Beaufort Inlet, the Turning Basin, and the Atlantic Beach and Morehead City high–rise bridges. Sea mullet were also caught at most of these locations last week. Try re–tied weighted speck rigs tipped with a small piece of shrimp. There are also plenty of pufferfish in the mix there too as well as the ocean fishing piers. Oceanana pier reported pups, black drum and trout last week. Bogue Pier experienced a great week of red drum, large black drum and trout as large as four pounds. The bite time was very early, well before sunrise, but anglers refused to let fish get away. Seaview Pier reported good fishing with drums speckled trout, spots and sea mullet. Surf City reported the same catches as the Seaview Pier, but also reported pufferfish and red drum. Offshore, the wahoo and blackfin tuna bite seems to be holding steady for the time being. Fish are scattered from the Swansboro Hole

to the Big Rock. There was also some blackfin tuna action at the Atlas Tanker on the east side of the Lookout Shoals. Bottom fishing is also good 22 miles out of Bogue Inlet in 90 feet of water. There are also pre–spawn roe–flounder. Flounder spawn in the winter in offshore waters. With all this good fishing going on, remember there are limits, most of which are aggressively enforced by North Carolina Marine fisheries officers. Whether you’re on the water, along the surf or on the piers, officers are on the lookout for rule–breakers. The gray trout minimum size is 12 inches. The bag limit is one fish per day. Speckled trout require a minimum of 14 inches. There is not a per-fishing trip for boats, on the pier or along the surf, but a total of four all day. If you give fish away, it will be counted in your daily total. There are red drum, and with so many juvenile fish under the slot limit, remember the slot is 18–inches to 27–inches, and there is a bag limit of one fish per angler per day. As always, please fish responsibly. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, and can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page at any time. For full regulations on black drum catches visit n.c.-saltwater-fishingtournaments. For more information on upcoming fishing tournaments in the Crystal Coast call your local bait shops.

The measure of a man What I learned from Lance Armstrong

For years I held Lance Armstrong in high esteem. Like many others I was impressed by his ability to overcome the odds, push past what was expected and redefine what it meant to win. Not anymore. In light of his recent doping charges, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour De France titles and ordered to give up his claim to fame. I can’t blame anybody but Armstrong for the predicament he is in. He knowingly and willingly cheated by participating in what ESPN is calling one of the most elaborate and well-concealed doping schemes in history. Somebody as willing to use drugs to get ahead as Armstrong does not deserve the titles heaped upon him. Recently Armstrong posted a picture of himself on Twitter, relaxing on a couch with his seven Tour De France jerseys hanging in the background. To many, this was a slap in the face. While he was instructed to relinquish his titles, Armstrong clearly thinks highly of himself. Only a man without regard for others would continue to boast his achievements in the light of a cheating scandal. The International Cycling Union stripped him of his victories and served Armstrong with a lifelong ban from all cycling events overseen by the United States AntiDoping Agency, but their punishment clearly has no effect on him. A man who was once one of the greatest and most respected athletes in the world is now nothing more than another cheating athlete. While Armstrong was never known for his willingness to humble himself before others, his

recent actions make me question his character. More than just an athlete, Armstrong represents all cancer survivors. As one of the most notable cancer survivors in history, his thoughts and the thoughts of people smarter than him were better heard because of his status in the international cancer survivor community. His thoughts turned into actions, and his actions were lauded as great accomplishments and support for those battling the tough road of cancer. How do you measure a man? The measure of a man is not found in how tall he stands or how wealthy he is. It is not found in the number of medals on his chest, the praises heaped upon him by adoring admirers or the number of cycling wins he held. Instead, the true measure of a man is found in his character. It is his inner most being. Who he is and what he does when every head is turned the other way speaks louder than what he does when all eyes are on him. It is true of all athletes. None of us are exempt. While you may feel pressure to be at the top of your game when there are only 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter and you have to run the ball 60 yards, the real measure of the person you are is not found in your actions on the field or court. Instead, it is found in the way you conduct yourself on the sidelines. Are you cheering your teammates on, providing constructive criticism and reminding them of what they are doing well, or are you secretly harboring your irritations and true feelings in order to put up a facade for those around you? Service members are some of the most deserving people I know. They are a group of people who do a thankless job without asking for recognition they often deserve. They are a humble community who work in silence for everything honorable. However, the true measure of each Marine comes when

nobody is watching. What are you doing when you are free to speak and act however you want. Do you remember you wear the cloth of our nation, or do you disregard everything, throw caution to the wind, and behave recklessly, endangering your character – the core of your very being? My hope is your actions are always honorable. Unlike Armstrong’s actions, I believe service members and those around them have enough sense to know they will have to answer to those around them who hold them accountable for their actions. Whether you are answering to your boss, your spouse, your children or your friends, your actions will not go unnoticed forever. Sooner or later, they will catch up with you. In that moment, you will be responsible for everything you’ve ever done. Don’t be like Armstrong. Don’t let down the people around you. You hold a place of high esteem in your community. Everyone from little kids to World War II veterans are looking to you for your wisdom, steadfastness and guidance. They are watching your movements. They are paying attention to your actions. Let your actions reflect your true self. Let character shine through whatever you do, whether you are on the ball field or in the combat zone. Let others exemplify you because you do what is right without seeking to be recognized; not because you are cheating behind the scenes. Don’t be the next Lance Armstrong.

Marines with 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group help volunteer firefighters from the Point Breeze Volunteer Fire Department move a large freezer out of a building in Breezy Point, N.Y., Nov. 8. The freezer stopped working after the building lost power, and the volunteer firefighters were not able to move the heavy appliance without help from the Marines.


Marines assist Breezy Point first responders LANCE CPL. SCOTT WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

A 20-minute lunch turned into an afternoon of cleaning as Marines from 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group helped clean the Point Breeze Volunteer Fire Department in Breezy Point, N.Y., Nov. 8. After a morning of performing access clearance, moving large debris from neighborhood streets, the Marines looked for a warm place to eat lunch. From there, they found a group of people in desperate need of help.

“We originally were just looking for a place indoors to eat,” said Sgt. Justin Armstrong, a combat engineer with the team. “The people offered their building to us to use, so we asked if there was a way we could repay them for their hospitality.” Armstrong said after speaking with the fire crew, they requested a hand straightening out their building, which was greatly damaged after Hurricane Sandy struck the area. The fire department was overlooked for a while, because of the small size of the building. The Marines, however, were up to the task.

The Marines assisted with carrying ruined furniture and gear outside of the building, including a large freezer. “We’ve been so busy putting out fires recently we haven’t had time to fix our own place,” said Ricky Savage, one of the department’s fire engine drivers. “It’s a tremendous help. So much of this wouldn’t have happened for a long time had it not been for these Marines.” Savage explained the volunteers spent time getting their own houses and families back in order, and the department unfortunately took a backseat

to everything else. “Everyone is scattered right now, either responding to a fire or dealing with their own homes,” he said. “The extra hands really help us out here.” Tim Dufficy, one the firefighters, also said it makes a big difference to have help. Dufficy said a lot of times, the place may only have three people or so in it at any one time, so being able to have more than 20 people cleaning the department puts them way ahead of where they thought they would be. The volunteer fire department is a vital part of the town. With

the main department being approximately three miles away, the small-knit community relies on the volunteers to be first responders until the other firefighters can arrive on scene. “In some ways, these guys have it tougher than I do,” said Armstrong. “Whenever I go out on an operation, I’m well-protected and in full (personal protective equipment). These guys run into burning buildings and put their lives on the line every time they fight a fire. I’m just happy we were afforded the opportunity to help out the volunteers the community counts on.”


Dedicated father of two serves country on first deployment CPL. MARK GARCIA

After a troubled past, Lance Cpl. Christopher Souder knew a change had to be made for him and his family. Wanting to serve his country, he joined the Marine Corps in hopes of a better life. Souder, now an armorer with 2nd Tank Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 7, decided to join the Marine Corps to support his first child and his wife.

“Before I joined, I had one kid. My wife and I just got engaged, and my life wasn’t going the way I wanted it to,” said Souder. “I got in a little bit of trouble, so when I had the chance to enlist, I took the opportunity.” Souder joined the Marine Corps Nov. 1, 2009, to better his life and has no regrets about the decision. He volunteered for his current deployment and hopes to get another deployment before

his time is done. “Everything happens for a reason,” Souder said. “I mean it led me here, so although some of the decisions I made weren’t the right ones, I’m glad I was able to learn from them. I begged to come on this deployment. I saw the old commanding officer for the company, and he was like, ‘Hey, I’ve been hearing your name a lot, you still want to deploy?’ I told him, ‘Hell yeah I want to

deploy,’ and here I am.” Souder said he is motivated to deploy again by what his grandfather, a former Marine, told him as a child. “The one thing my grandpa told me was ‘Don’t go through life with any regrets because it’s the worse thing,’” Souder said. “Many people came over here three or four times. If I don’t try to get on another deployment after I’m already done with this one, I think I probably would regret it later on in life. I don’t want to have it, so I’d like to deploy with the next company when they The following businesses are designated by the come out here.” base commander as “off-limits” Although Souder’s grandfaBell Auto Salvage II at 136 Abbits Branch (A.K.A.

Don’t ‘Dredd’ Denzel’s dramatic, mystery ‘Flight’ Now playing at Camp Lejeune “DREDD 3D” (PG-13) “Dredd 3D” is a science fiction action film based on the 2000 AD comic strip “Judge Dredd.” This film shares the same character as the 1995 “Judge Dredd” with Sylvester Stalone; however this version is supposed to be a closer adaptation of the comic-book character. The story takes place in a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, and where a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the realityaltering drug, SLO-MO. Karl Urban (“Priest,” “Red,” “Star Trek”) stars as Judge Dredd, a so-called super cop who wears a big helmet he never takes off. The law enforcer was given the power of judge, jury, and executioner, and is known and feared throughout the city called Mega City One, a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. Olivia Thirlby (“The Darkest Hour,” “No Strings Attached”) costars as rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson, who is a genetic mutant with powerful psychic abilities. The two team up to take criminals like MaMa, played by Lena Headey (“TVs “Games of Thrones”), off the market. Ma-Ma is the resident drug lord, a former prostitute turned drug lord and criminal kingpin, who is

now the sole supplier for a powerful new addictive drug in the city, which is loaded with violence, crime, drugs, and death. Wood Harris (“Southland Tales”) appears as Kay, the movie’s villain. Director Pete Travis (“Vantage Point,” “End Game”) shot some of this film in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. “Dredd 3D” is a very violent, grim and gritty portrait of a vast futuristic world and shows America as an irradiated waste land where the only force of order lies with the urban cops who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and executioner. Now playing at Jacksonville “FLIGHT” (R) “Flight” is a mystery drama and a dark emotional character study of an airline pilot who acts heroically. Denzel Washington (“Unstoppable,” “Safe House”) stars as William “Whip” Whitaker, a seasoned commercial airline pilot, who also has serious personal problems. When Whip miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board, he becomes an instant media hero. After the crash, Whip goes into hiding while being hailed a hero; however when more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on the plane.

From the

FrontRow Front Row With Reinhild Moldenhauer Huneycutt

During the official investigation into the pilot’s emergency landing, troubling revelations surface that he might have had alcohol and drugs in his system during the flight, which might land him in prison. Don Cheadle (“Iron Man 2”) co-stars as Hugh Lang, the union’s clever lawyer who represents Whip. Kelly Reilly (“Sherlock Holmes”) plays Nicole Maggen, a drug addict, who by chance becomes Whip’s friend, John Goodman (“Argo”) portrays the colorful and comical drug dealer Harling Mays, Whip’s handler and candy man. Also starring is Bruce Greenwood (“Super 8”) as Charlie Anderson, head of the pilot union and Whip’s former buddy, Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) as Ellen Block, the federal investigator who leads

Marines help with hurricane relief LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


pproximately 86 Marines from 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group arrived in New York recently with high-powered pumps, engineering equipment and various other military-grade resources to assist locals who lost their homes due to Hurricane Sandy. The vicious storm ripped through much of the coast,

including parts of Queens and much of Far Rockaway. Many of the areas’ low-income housing was either blown away, burned or flooded beyond repair, leaving people who live there without electricity, food or even a roof over their heads in some cases. The Marines were sent to support United States Northern Command with Defense Support of Civil Authorities missions related to the hurricane, in order to salvage any homes. After arriving late Nov. 3 the team hit the ground running early the next day, sending out their first group of combat engineers

and water support technicians to pump water out of a block of apartment complexes in Far Rockaway. Many of the buildings’ basements were flooded and required water removal immediately. Marines answered the call by setting up powerful, gas-powered pumps to extract the water from the buildings and into the drainage systems in the streets. Residents of the apartments received the Marines’ efforts with optimism. Some watched as the engineers worked, some took pictures, and other residents offered coffee and food to the Marines.

The Marines assigned to the humanitarian operation found out about the assignment just days before they left, but they were more than happy to volunteer and support the cause. “Basically, our command told us they needed a certain number of Marines in a couple (Military Occupational Specialties) to go to New York, and I wanted to be a part of the efforts in helping the people here,” said Sgt. Justin Armstrong, a combat engineer with 8th ESB, 2nd MLG. “Even though we had less than two days to prepare, all of us wanted to come and do what we could

to aid the residents who lost so much in the storm.” The feeling resonated throughout the group of Marines. “I’m just happy I got the opportunity to do something that will benefit these people in need,” said Sgt. Ryan Ewing, a water support technician with 8th ESB, 2nd MLG. The Marines pumped an enormous amount of floodwater from the apartments after their first day of work, but the job is only beginning. The Marines are looking forward to the challenge and excited to see what other jobs await them. Photo by Lance Cpl. Scott W. Whiting

From battle injury to business partner LANCE ANCE CPL. PAUL PETERSON 2nd nd Marine Logistics Group

He remembers everything: warning his fellow ellow Marines, the explosion, the dust cloud, loud, flying through the air upside down and nd the sight of his legs, torn off above his knees. “It didn’t hurt, but I knew I was in pretty rough shape,” said retired Staff Sgt. Brad M. Lang, who was a technician with 2nd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, when he reported to the scene of his last improvised explosive device in Afghanistan July 24, 2011. It was an otherwise normal day when the call for assistance came in from the field. At the scene, Lang quickly uncovered two IEDs while he and other Marines weathered harassing fire from the enemy. He was preparing to destroy the explosives when a single step triggered a third device. It was his second deployment to Afghanistan, but his fight did not end there. Lang’s world descended into shadows for nearly a month and a half. He remembers only foggy snippets of his life as doctors struggled to repair his damaged body “two severed legs, a fractured pelvis, lacerated colon and ruptured left eardrum. His peers in the EOD community in Jacksonville, N.C., the city Lang calls home, rallied to support his wife and child as teams of medical professionals worked to save his life. “I think in total I had more than 20 operations and 74 units of blood or blood product,” recalled Lang coolly. “Less than a year out from injury, I was back at home walking on prosthetics.” Lang’s experiences after the blast helped him forge a stronger relationship with his wife, Alyssa, and their 3-year-old son. “My wife was unbelievable through the whole thing,’ said Lang. ‘She kind of kept me grounded, kept me on the path to recovery, and didn’t let me fall down the slippery slope of feeling sorry for myself. It really helped, especially during the hard times of recovery.” His injuries created a role reversal in their household. Lang said he still struggles to deal with having to watch his wife perform many of the daily chores he used to handle. Things as simple as carrying in the groceries or loading their truck now challenge him as they never did before. Lang chose to seize his own independence and set to work on a new career outside of the military. “When you are lying in a hospital bed, coming through a situation like this, one of your biggest fears is, “What is the rest of my life going to look like?” remembered Lang. “One of the things I have always wanted was to continue to be a contributing member of society and continue to live a fulfilled life ... Independence is everything.” He joined forces with Staff Sgt. Johnny W. Morris, a fellow EOD technician who also lost a leg in Afghanistan. The two

men set out to launch their own business, Stumpies Custom Guns, Inc., a fully-functional gun store that sells, repairs and specializes in custom guns. The name came at the suggestion of Lang’s wife, who joked, “You only have one leg between the two of you.” Th i company iis now officially ffi i ll iincorTheir porated, and 27-year-old Lang has thrown himself into getting their enterprise on the road to success. “The start up phase is very labor intensive,” said Lang, who originally went to school for engineering. He attended business classes to establish the groundwork for his company, and set his engineering experience and mechanical inclinations to work on his new passion. He said he is proud to be a business owner, but he has also maintained the same humorous nature that inspired the company’s name. “Life is too serious in and of itself,” added Lang. “You might as well just add a little humor into it. We make jokes all the time about not having legs.” His wife joined wholeheartedly in keeping a comical spirit active within the family. “I accidentally ran over Alyssa’s foot with my wheelchair,” said Lang as he recalled his time in the hospital. “She turned around and said, ‘Just because you don’t have any feet doesn’t mean I don’t like mine.’ It is just how we are.” The family recently broke ground on a new home sponsored by Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization devoted to providing specially adapted homes for severely injured service members. Lang said he found a certain irony in his current house, which he personally remodeled before his last deployment. His mobility devices already took a toll on his hand-laid moldings. The new house will help accommodate his specific needs. Even with his injuries, his new business and the prospects of a new house, Lang said his experiences have taught him his family is truly important. Lang’s evenings belong to them. “My son took this totally in stride. No matter what, I am dad ‘legs or no legs’,” he said. “He loves riding on my wheelchair. I have a skateboard I use to get around the house, too. I sit on it and push myself around. He sits on it with me, and we just go around the house.” His passion for family extends to his brotherhood with 2nd EOD Company, who helped care for his loved ones in his absence and provided life-saving care at the scene of the explosion. “My team member, who is not a corpsman, was able to rush in there and take care of my injuries,” said Lang passionately. “The one thing that truly saved my life is the live-tissue training we received.” Lang personally greeted his unit the day they returned from Afghanistan. He received his prosthetic legs shortly before they arrived, and he made it a point to welcome them home while standing on his own two feet.

FATHER FROM 2C so I hope I get another daughter,” Souder said. “But I miss my wife and kids pretty much equally. I write music to kind of just take me away from everything. I write music out here all the time, and I like to put some of the different experiences from out here into my music.” Sergeant John Ramson, a section leader with Bravo Co., 2nd Tank Bn., has been in two companies with Souder and noted his professionalism throughout that time. “He always makes sure he does his job the way he’s supposed to and doesn’t care if he gets the credit or not,” Ramson said. “He’s just a hard worker and wants to make sure everything is done right. He’s pretty funny and is really dedicated to what he does. He really cares about making sure whatever he’s doing he’s doing it right. He was my armorer back in Delta Company, and he was my go to guy if there were any problems.” Souder plans on re-enlisting and working on his musical career, but until then he will continue to ensure Bravo Co., 2nd Tank Bn., has functioning weapons while deployed to Afghanistan.

Members of the Onslow County community gathered for the dedication ceremony of the new Freedom Fountain hosted by the Onslow Civic Affairs Committee and the city of Jacksonville located at the intersection of Johnson Boulevard and New Bridge Street Nov. 9. The new fountain is dedicated to everyone who passed through Onslow County in service to this nation.

Community dedicates Freedom Fountain LANCE CPL. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Members of the community gathered for the dedication ceremony of the new Freedom Fountain hosted by the Onslow Civic Affairs Committee and the city of Jacksonville located at the intersection of Johnson Boulevard and New Bridge Street Nov. 9. The fountain’s completion and ceremony paired well with the Veterans Day weekend. The new fountain is dedicated to everyone who passed through Onslow County in service to this nation. It also extends the memorials and honors from The Lejeune Memorial Gardens where the Beirut, Vietnam and 9-11

memorials are located. “(The fountain) signifies our continued support and recognition of the importance of our military and community,” said Sammy Philips, the mayor of Jacksonville. “A lot of times we take our freedoms for granted, and we take for granted what it took to secure those freedoms. This fountain memorializes those (service members) who committed and sacrificed for their nation. This is a small way of saying thank you to our military members.” Attendees had an opportunity to pour a vial of water into the fountain to initiate it. Those who work for the state joined State Senator Harry Brown in initiating the outermost ring of bubblers represented the 50 states. Patrons who work for

the federal or local government initiated the inter ring of three fountainheads dedicated to local, federal and state governments. Veterans who served or are serving in the military poured their water vials with Onslow County Board of Commissioners Chairman W.C. Jarman, and Mayor Philips to initiate the Freedom jet, which was the center and highest part of the fountain. Much like the freedom fountain, the military members make up the center and heart of the community. “This fountain goes to testify our commitment with our military,” said Philips. “We realize the importance of the military in our community, and we try to keep in focus.” Memorials such as the Freedom Fountain

symbolize the bond and support between military and the community. Their united efforts and shared ideals help strengthen a positive relationship and create a foundation for collective growth. “This county and city is a very special place,” said Retired Col. Wayne Morris, a member of the Beirut Memorial Advisory Board. “This is a rebirth of the original Freedom Fountain we had downtown. It is beautiful and showcases how the citizens give back to our service members. There is no other place like it in the United States because it is the most caring and giving community. There are so many military cities that are ambivalent toward the military, but you can’t say that about this community.”

Marine brothers meet in Afghanistan The brothers, from Albion, Ind., reunited on the flightline on Camp Bastion. It was a brief meeting before a joint operation with the two units. “I am thankful anytime I get to see a member of the family,” said Matthew. “Even if it is for only 20 minutes on a flightline in Afghanistan.” The operation involved transporting servicemembers into Helmand province. The brothers do not see each other often. Their family is scattered across the United States making it difficult to meet. “It was great to see him,” said Dustin. “My brother always was a mentor personally and professionally for me.” Like many families, the brothers picked up right where they left off. Even with years between the last time they saw each other, it was easy to be

One Marine never expected his reunion with his brother would take place moments before an operation over Helmand province, Afghanistan. Capt. Dustin Kerlin, pilot, Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 161, recently enjoyed flying with his brother while the two are deployed. Dustin savored the rare moment when his brother, Lt. Col. Matthew Kerlin, deputy commander, Embedded Training Team, 777 Squadron, arrived on Camp Bastion before the operation. Family members do not often deploy together, and Dustin appreciated the opportunity. “Getting to meet up with my brother in Afghanistan was the highlight of my career,” said Dustin. “It was great to get to see him.”

Col. Jeffrey J. Kenney, Afghan security forces officer in charge, Regimental Combat Team 7, is serving his 12th deployment. He has 37 years of experience in the Marine Corps and was honored Nov. 10 during the cake cutting ceremony, as the oldest Marine in the regiment.

Lifelong mentor serves 37 years in Marine Corps CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO Regional Command Southwest

Twenty years is the retirement goal for many young Marines, but one Marine’s time in service nearly doubles the mark. With 37 years in the Marine Corps, the grand old man of Regimental Combat Team 7, Lt. Col. Jeffrey J. Kenney, intended to retire in 2003. But when the war began, he could not say goodbye while other Marines were serving in combat. “I just couldn’t retire during a war,” said Kenney, Afghan security force officer in charge, RCT-7. “I thought I could help with my experience.” Kenney joined the Marine Corps during 1975 with no intention of re-enlisting. After serving with 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, he decided to stay in because he enjoyed being a platoon sergeant with his Marines and aspired going to Marine Reconnaissance. “When I joined, I wanted to do four years and get out,” said Kenney. Four years turned into 37 for Kenney. From his days with 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines to now with RCT-7, he served with 2nd Marines, 7th Marines, 8th Marines, Marine Corps Recruiting Command twice, Marine Corps security guard duty, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, infantry officer course twice and the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, to name a few stations. Kenney, 55, is what Marines call a mustang. He served his first 12 years as an enlisted Marine and was commis-

sioned as an officer during 1987. Kenney uses his experience as a prior enlisted Marine to mentor and teach the Marines around him. “He can relate to the younger enlisted Marines,” said Maj. Rudy Salcido, a company commander, with RCT-7. “He brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. He’s able to mentor down from the junior Marine all the way up to the senior officers the same way.” When Salcido, was attending infantry officer course during 2001, Kenney was the director of the course. “He set the example,” said Salcido. “Every time he stepped in, he did it at the right time. As a student, I could tell it was leadership at it’s finest.” Salcido considers Kenney one of his role models and still comes to him for advice. “I’ve seen him mentor some of my other mentors,” said Salcido. “It’s what he is, he’s a lifelong mentor.” Being well respected by his fellow Marines does not make Kenney immune to the good-natured ribbing Marines often share. “They make jokes about me knowing Chesty Puller or Dan Daly,” said Kenney between laughs. “They’ll see the old recruiting pictures from World War II and ask me if that helmet was comfortable.” The Marine Corps celebrated its birthday Nov. 10. As is tradition, Kenney will receive the first piece of cake as the oldest Marine present. It is a familiar custom. “This will be my third (Marine

Corps) birthday as the oldest Marine,” said Kenney. “I was kind of expecting it this year.” Many Marines will never be part of the cake cutting ceremony. The oldest Marine receives the first piece of cake and the youngest receives the second. For Kenney, he is a professional at both positions. “I joined when I was 17,” said Kenney. “My first two years in the Corps, I was the youngest Marine at the ceremony.” It makes this cake cutting the fifth for Kenney. He is more than twice the age of the youngest Marine and has more time in the Marine Corps than the youngest Marine has in life. “It’s humbling to see him still working the way he does,” said Salcido. “It’s humbling to see the energy he still brings after all these years.” This is Kenney’s 12th and likely final deployment. He served many years and brings his own credibility to the line in the Marines’ Hymn, “We have fought in every clime and place.” From the United States, Okinawa, Iran, Germany, Iraq and Afghanistan, he served the Marine Corps faithfully. “I will definitely retire before 2015,” said Kenney. “I don’t want to hit the 40-year mark.” Until he retires, he will continue mentoring and shaping Marines at each level. His experience is a welcome source of knowledge for the new private all the way to the more experienced officers.

Runners with the 37th Marine Corps Marathon begin the “People’s Marathon” in Arlington, Va., Oct. 28. The 23,864 starters in the race came from across the United States and 47 countries to run in the world’s ninth largest marathon.

Training for the long haul: 2ND LT. SARAH E. BURNS

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

One mile no sweat, two miles easy day, eight miles – keep em’ coming, 26.2 miles … okay? No, 26.2 miles is not okay. Running a marathon will not be a kind experience to anyone without properly preparing for race day. Over 23,000 runners from every state and 54 countries completed the 2012 Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., Oct. 28, according to Marine Corps Marathon officials. Considering the marathon sold out in a record of three hours, this was not a spontaneous decision for many of

the athletes. First-time marathoner Samantha Carl, a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy, was a bit anxious, but did train in preparation of the race. “I just did a couple of long runs on Sundays, so hopefully it will pay off.” It did, she broke her goal pace by 15 minutes, finishing with a time of three hours and 31 minutes. Completing one longer run and adding on extra morning or night runs throughout the week will greatly improve the body’s ability to withstand the pounding-mileage demands of a marathon. It is also smart to incorporate at least two faster-paced workouts during the week and take low-mileage re-

covery runs in between the hard days. There are many resources available which develop training regimens catering to individual needs, to include magazines, online and at health clubs. However, marathon training is not only limited to physical prowess. A good training regimen balances a healthy lifestyle in accordance with running. So while pop tarts look like a good idea before expending 26.2 miles of physicality, it isn’t the best choice. According to the Runners World article, “Perfecting Your Prerace Food Strategy,” the best pre-race breakfast consists mainly of carbohydrates, since they’re digested most rapidly and

are your body’s preferred fuel source, says Penny Wilson, Ph.D., a registered dietitian who works with endurance athletes. Small amounts of protein will help stave off hunger during the later miles. She says it is wise to limit or avoid fat and fiber; the former takes too long to digest, while the latter can cause bloating and GI problems. Foods like a bagel and peanut butter, oatmeal with milk and dried fruit, or yogurt and toast are as good of options as are a banana and high-carb energy bar, waffle with syrup and strawberries, or even a bowl of rice. Despite whatever health-nut foods an athlete consumes, there is more to the balance of training

Avoid becoming a marathon casualty than exercise and nutrition. The pressure of getting adequate sleep can become an overwhelming or non-existent goal, but it is extremely important to get enough rest before a long race or a strenuous physical event. In the case of a marathon, the body is already exerting itself for an average of three to five hours. There is no need to exhaust it before the race even begins. Many coaches stress two nights before a race are the crucial nights for good sleep and should be incorporated into a training program. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Marine Corps Community Service Semper Fit department offers many fitness-related lectures,

which teach the importance of rest while creating a training plan. Other topics include components of physical fitness, how to develop safe running programs and injury prevention. Sleep, training and nutrition are just a few variables in the race formula. One additional pivotal component is proper hydration. Yes, some minds may be scarred with memories of unit leaders barking orders to hydrate, but adhere to the inner drill instructor, and drink water and electrolyte-enhanced beverages during long physical events.

as a nation, our values as people, our security as a democracy, and our offer of hope to those in other lands, who dream our dreams of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The fight for freedom is steep and comes at a cost. “There’s a price to be paid in this business, but there’s no place else we’d rather be,” said guest speaker, retired Col. Stephen Davis. “We understand more than most the price of freedom.” Davis, who spent 30 years in the Marine Corps, described the lessons he’s learned from veterans of past wars and the bright future he sees for those new to the service. “All veterans stood their post,” he noted. “If we don’t hand down these lessons, traditions and love of country,

we’re in trouble.” From service members who fought in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, Davis revealed the endurance, dignity and courage required of the country’s warriors. He also made clear how everyone’s role is vital in maintaining and protecting the freedom America enjoys. “Being at the tip of the spear is critical, but if everyone doesn’t do their job, we won’t be successful,” Davis said. “None of us is as good as we are when we all pull together. This remains the greatest nation on earth thanks to you.” Students from the School of Infantry – East paid close attention as their predecessors spoke and seized the chance to learn from those who paved the way for them. “It’s a great opportunity to thank those who

came before us,” emphasized Cpl. Kyle Marshall, Headquarters and Support Battalion. Pvt. Roland Johnson agreed and said, “We need to know about our past so we can prepare for our future.” The New River Young Marines performed the tradition of the laying of the wreaths in memory of fallen service members, and O’Toole read the infamous poem by John McCrae, “In Flanders Fields.” “There’s nothing greater than seeing the younger generations learning their history from those who paved the way,” Bryant commented after the ceremony. “We’re a brotherhood. It’s important to teach (them) what we went through to get here today. Many struggles were fought for us to get where we are.”

Devil Pups celebrate birthday, honor veterans AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

The students of Lejeune High School don’t need a ball to celebrate a birthday. They just need a little ceremony and a lot of cake. Faculty, staff and students gathered in the school’s gymnasium to commemorate the Marine Corps’ 237th birthday Nov. 9. Following in the footsteps of their parents, the teenagers participated in the cake-cutting ceremony with the same pomp and circumstance as activeduty units. “It’s rewarding for us to take part in the tradition,” said Cadet 2nd Lt. Brigid Detreux. “We know that we serve too.” Detreux walked side-by-side with her father, Col. Kenneth Detreux, commanding officer for 2nd Battalion, 8th Regiment, as members of the Junior ROTC program presented the colors and cut the cake. The nearly five-foot confection was prepared by the culinary arts students.

The school was adopted by the regiment in 2010 and Detreux proudly inherited them when he took command. “It’s a unique opportunity in a military community how the entire family celebrates,” he noted. “Everyone is involved. It’s neat to grow up on a base, and be exposed to this kind of camaraderie and fraternity.” In addition to the birthday, the students also observed Veterans Day in a way all their own. Jim Surey, educational technologist, led the campaign to have each student bring in a picture of a veteran in their lives with as much information as they could find. The display in the foyer of the school holds nearly 100 entries of veterans dating back to World War I and includes several faculty and staff members. “The kids are looking at them all the time,” Surey commented. “One student brought in pictures of nine family members. That’s quite a legacy to live up to.”

U.S. Marines assigned to Marine Engagement Team from Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit conduct a patrol while participating in a training exercise in Jordan recently. The engagement team is a platoon-sized group of Marines from the 24th MEU who are conducting a variety of unilateral and bilateral training events with the Jordanian Marines in southern Jordan.


24th MEU initiates training engagement team in Jordan

Platoon-sized training events provide unique opportunity for junior Marines CAPT. ROBERT SHUFORD

24th Marine Expeditionary Unit


ver the past couple of months approximately 150 Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit had the unique opportunity to participate in training events at the platoon level with members of the Jordanian Marine Corps in southern Jordan. The Marines conducted a variety of training events while ashore including live-fire ranges, land navigation, patrolling

and offensive and defensive operations in mountainous and desert terrain all while furthering relationships with, and gaining a better understanding of, their Jordanian counterparts. Starting in September the 24th MEU was able to send two rotations of Marines ashore along with a training cadre lead by a major to a pre-established base in southern Jordan. The units conducting the training were platoon-sized with the senior Marine being a first lieutenant, with about 55 junior Marines ranked seargeant and below from varying job fields, which included infantry, reconnaissance,

communications and logistics. The training initiated by the 24th MEU, called the MEU Engagement Team, provided a unique opportunity for these Marines who would most likely have spent this time embarked at sea aboard one of the ships of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group, the Navy’s three-ship unit the 24th MEU is deployed with. “This training proved to be one of the better small-unit training events during our time in the Central Command theater,� said Col. Frank Donovan, commanding officer, 24th MEU.

“Not only was the bilateral training with Jordanians fantastic, but the physically demanding, foot-mobile training and enhanced marksmanship ranges we conducted left our Marines better prepared for crisis response.� The 24th MEU spent the past six months serving as a crisis response force in the U.S. Central Command and Navy’s 5th Fleet areas of responsibility. The 24th MEU completed this requirement Nov. 5 and is currently in the European Command and 6th Fleet area of responsibility on its eighth month of a deployment.

Wounded Marine’s success through transition Marine comes home to hurricane ravaged city AQUITA BROWN

Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment

There is nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning and spending the entire day outdoors. For Marine veteran Lance Cpl. Chase Savage it is the best prescription for healing. Savage spends his weekends participating in various hunting and fishing outings with his fellow wounded, ill and injured Marines through the Wounded Warrior Regiment’s outdoor recreation program. Savage always enjoyed hunting and fishing since growing up in rural Mississippi. He joined the Marine Corps in 2003 as a rifleman in the infantry. His main reason for joining was due to the tragic events of 9/11. “I was young,” said Savage. “I had just graduated, and I felt obligated to be a part of the things going on with our country.” Nov. 11, 2004, Savage, was injured while on patrol with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit in Haswa, Iraq. Savage was operating a machine gun turret, when his vehicle suddenly struck an improvised explosive device. “I was conscious the entire time,” said Savage. “I remember feeling the heat wave from the blast and initially thinking we had been hit by a rocketpropelled grenade. I did not realize I was hurt until I went to turn the turret. My arm did not work.” Savage was immediately evacuated to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany, and then to Walter Reed Army Medical Center (now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center) where he first learned the extent of his injuries. He had sustained a compound fracture to his right arm, shrapnel wounds to his right forearm and a contusion to his sternum. Savage eventually lost his right arm above the elbow, due to these wounds. Savage’s struggles throughout his recovery process were minimized thanks to the support of his loving family and another wounded warrior. “Retired Marine Malcolm “Mac” Garner, who lost his arm in Vietnam and who was also a game warden on base, was influential in assisting me with getting my degree in wildlife,” said Savage. “To see someone with a similar injury successful and giving back was amazing.” After he transitioned from active duty in 2005, Savage moved back home. He enrolled in college at Mississippi State University and completed his Bachelors of Science in wildlife management in 2010. He currently works for the Unit-


ed States Fish and Wildlife Service at the Baltimore Washington International Airport as a wildlife inspector. “Chase spends a lot of time mentoring other wounded, ill and injured Marines and is a true inspiration to many others, and shows it is not the disability but the ability to do whatever he desires,” said Bob Critcher, the Wounded Warrior Regiment’s outdoor recreation coordinator. “The Regiment encourages our Marines to participate in sporting events and outdoor recreation activities to build their self confidence and ultimately assists with a successful transition such as Chase’s.” Examples of success stories such as Chase’s are common, and will be highlighted throughout the year and during Warrior Care Month in November. Warrior Care Month is a Department of Defense-wide effort to celebrate the accomplishments of our wounded, ill and injured Marines, and increase awareness throughout the military of wounded warrior support programs and commands. The theme for this year is “Success Through Transition - Education, Employment & Entrepreneurship.” Savage is being highlighted not only for the success in his career but for mentoring other Marines. Savage was inspired to introduce newly injured Marines to various outdoor programs and events. “I see myself as one of these guys. I was in their place years ago. This is one way I can give back,” said Savage. “Being outdoors helped me heal a lot quicker. Therapy in a hospital setting is obviously very important for our returning wounded warriors, but at the same time a weekend spent outdoors can replace weeks of traditional therapy in the overall healing process. It really helped me get back to a life of normalcy.” Established in 2007, the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment was created to provide and facilitate nonmedical care to combat and non-combat wounded, ill and injured Marines and sailors attached to or in direct support of Marine units and their family members in order to assist them as they return to duty or transition to civilian life. The Regimental Headquarters element, located in Quantico, Va., commands the operations of two Wounded Warrior Battalions located at Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Camp Lejeune, N.C., and multiple detachments in locations around the globe. For more information about the Wounded Warrior Regiment visit www. or call the Sgt. Merlin German with the Wounded Warrior Call Center at 877-487-6299.


26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Coming to the fleet is a unique experience for every Marine. Some spend years sitting on a base, some deploy immediately, some get exactly where they are hoping for, and some have to wait a little longer. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s a rougher time. But rarely, they’re deployed within two weeks of arriving at their unit to assist disaster recovery operations for their own homes after a hurricane tears through the area, doing untold damage. 2nd Lt. Gerard Farao is one such example of the latter category. Assistant public affairs officer with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Farao arrived at the unit less than two weeks before packing all of his gear and flying with elements of the unit to assist in relief operations in the vicinity of New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy’s destructive course through the area. “I grew up right across the river from New York City,” said Farao. “I was able to see the actual Ground Zero from my English classroom window.” Born and raised in New Jersey, he lived his entire life, never moving from the area before entering the Marine Corps. A finance major at Rutgers Business School, Farao was selected for Officer Candidate School. Selected as a public affairs officer by the Marine Corps, Farao is a graduate of the Defense Information School. Following his graduation, he arrived the 26th MEU, stationed out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. Within days, he was in the field as the MEU continued its predeployment training program. As the storm swung wide of North Carolina and started bearing in on the northeast, he started to become concerned for his family and home. “Once it got north, I was calling, asking if everyone was alright, if there was electricity,” said Farao. “In a weird way, I kind of wished I was home to experience it, just because it’s where I’ve been all my life.” When orders came down from II Marine Expeditionary Force for the 26th MEU to support disaster relief operations, Farao and other MEU Marines boarded MV22B Osprey tiltrotors, flying north to embark aboard USS Wasp. USS Wasp is an amphibious assault carrier serving as the 26th MEU’s base of operations off the coast of New York and New Jersey, an ideal staging point for the aviation and logistics assets, and a perfect vessel for situating the hundreds of Marines supporting operations. “Walking through some of these areas reminds me of my neighborhood a little bit, so it hits close to home. When you hear the stories of the people stuck and drowning in their homes and cars, it’s pretty grim,” said Farao. Farao is currently assisting clean-up operations on Staten Island with the 26th MEU. The 26th MEU is able to provide generators, fuel, clean water and helicopter lift capabilities to aid in disaster relief efforts. The 26th MEU is currently conducting pre-deployment training, preparing for their departure in 2013. As an expeditionary force operating from the sea the MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations.

(Above) Thomas Childs, head coach, stands in front of members of the Brewster Middle School wrestling team as he watches a wrestler at the team’s home game of their inaugural season Nov. 8. Childs calls coaching the middle school team a “true joy” and says he enjoys watching them learn the basics of the sport. (Below) Nick Stowers (left) grapples with an opponent from New Bridge Middle School during Brewster Middle School’s first home match aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Nov. 8. Like the rest of his teammates, Stowers is new to competitive wrestling and still learning the basics.

MARATHON FROM 4B women should consume 91 ounces, and men require 125 ounces a day of water – more than the generally recommended 64 ounces, or eight cups, for an average individual. Hydration is measured by the concentration of sodium in your blood – the higher the concentration, the higher the level of dehydration. When this concentration increases by just two percent, the body gets thirsty. On the course, no matter the distance, there is usually a hydration station. For marathons particularly, it is important to take advantage of free drinks. There are 26 miles to run and hydrating between water and Gatorade for a few seconds won’t kill the pace, but waiting until race day to drink something will. The most important advice before any sort of physical endeavor is for the athlete to know what their body can and can’t handle. Some people are capable of eating three peanut butter sandwiches before a race, and some people shouldn’t even consume one. The same goes for a running routine, sleep and hydration. Marines are bred to push the limits; however there is only so far someone can go before they wake up in a medical tent. For more information on the fitness related information or lectures from Marine Corps Community Services call 451-0470 or visit

WRESTLING FROM 1B exchange was brief and silent, but spoke volumes. The next five minutes were anything but easy. Stowers was alone on the mat, with no teammates to rely on when he needed help. His own aides were a few weeks of practice and instincts to dodge, shoot and stay standing. While his New Bridge Middle School opponent eventually pinned him to the mat, Stowers stood with a grin on his face as he congratulated his opponent, shook hands with the New Bridge coaching staff and returned to the side of the mat, where Childs was waiting for him. “You did good,” Childs could be heard telling his first wrestler in a quiet and calm tone. “You did good.” With 40 years of coaching experience under his belt, Childs knows a good performance when he sees one. For a team less than a month old, any attempt to perform well on the mat is worthy of praise. “All I want to see in these children is a desire to learn,” said Childs. “They’re still young and learning the basics.” Brewster Middle School’s Thursday night wrestling match against New Bridge Middle School was their wrestling premier. While everybody hoped to leave the gymnasium with a win under their belt, the real story

It is a joy to coach these young people. It is like writing on a blank sheet of paper. They just want to learn everything. Thomas Childs, Brewster Middle School head coach

was in the journey they took to their first match. When Brewster Middle School announced its plan to host school sports in the 2012 school year, enthusiasm from student– athletes poured in. Athletic director Doug Erny began hunting down coaches for the 2012–2013 academic year. When he approached Childs and Kellum about starting a wrestling team, they readily agreed. “It’s a joy to coach these young people,” explained Childs. “It is like writing on a blank sheet of paper. They just want to learn everything.” Without any pre–conceived notions of school sports to cloud their heads, Brewster Middle School’s wrestling team was eager to learn and ready to work. Childs, already well–known and highly respected for his work with the Lejeune High School wrestling team, took the newest student– athletes under his wing, and began to teach them with extreme patience and reassurance. With his calm demeanor and quiet way of speaking, it was easy to see Childs already gained the respect of his team at their first match. He stood

silently on the sidelines, waiting patiently as each wrestler made their way to the mat for their first of three periods. “It’s a refreshing change from high school,” admitted Childs. “These kids just want to learn. June (Kellum) and I are really enjoying it.” Just because he is not coaching at the high school doesn’t mean his methods changed. Since the Brewster Middle School athletic programs were designed as feeder programs for the high school, practices are held in the same manner. Childs and Kellum teach their middle school athletes the same way they teach their high school athletes. While periods are shorter during middle school matches, nobody gets an easy pass during practice. Everybody is expected to work as hard as they can every day of the week. His high school students are never far away, either. In the middle of proud parents and excited friends, a clump of Lejeune High School wrestlers were cheering on their younger counterparts, yelling advice and reminding them to let their instincts be their guides on the mat.

“The older ones are required to show up at the little ones home meets,” explained Childs. “If they want to be on my team, they better be there. They are motivators for those young kids.” While they are still young and new to the sport, the Brewster Middle School wrestling team is already showing promise. Their season is short and will go by quickly, but the improvements they made in the first weeks of the season are vast, according to Childs. “I believe we’re going to win our fair share in the future,” predicted Childs. “These children are improving every day. They are still learning the basics of wrestling, but I think they will do very well and be well–prepared for high school wrestling.” Brewster Middle School’s next home meet will take place today in the Brewster Middle School gymnasium aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. The bulldogs will take on the Jacksonville Commons Middle School wrestling team at 4 p.m. For ticket prices call Brewster Middle School at 451-2561.

Stone Bay heats up fall with festivities chance for people to come out and enjoy something other than military training from the command. It also brings the kids and spouses from different units together.” Children pressed their faces up against the fence as they reached to touch the friendly animals at the petting zoo. Some children were hesitant and attached themselves to their parents’ leg while they peeked from behind. The petting zoo featured animals such as kids, chickens and rabbits. Children who sought adventure scaled the mountain climbing wall, and slid, bounced and jumped in the inflatable obstacle courses. Parents were happy, and some relieved, to see the children rapt in fun. Denise Goben, a military spouse at the event, said unit events are always a

he ear-splitting sound of gun shots was replaced with the sound of music and laughter aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Stone Bay rifle range. Service members and families gathered for a fun-filled afternoon during the 3rd Harvest Festival, hosted at range A aboard Stone Bay Nov. 3. The event was open to members of weapons training battalion and Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. “The event is a unit-cohesion and quality-of-life enhancement,” said Larry D. Kalsow, the family readiness officer with MARSOC Support Group. “It’s a

hit with her family. “The kids love it and there’s always so much for them to do,” said Goben. “We always look forward to these events. We came to the event last year, and it was a great time and were excited to hear about it this year.” The adults were kept entertained mingling with friends and jamming to the live band, which included a compilation of MARSOC Marines performing. While participants immersed themselves in the festivities, Marines fired up the grills, and dished out hamburgers and hotdogs to curb growling stomachs. The day was cold, but some patrons offset their chills and shivers after sampling the spicy cooking offered during the chili cook off. There were 11 contestants participating who stirred up their secret recipe for

all to taste. One contestant required waivers signed by those who wanted to savor or stomach his tongue scorching chili made with ghost peppers, one of the spiciest peppers in the world. The parents broke a sweat eating while the children did so playing. More than 300 people left the festival bearing smiles. Kalsow said it was rewarding to see the event come together. “This event is great and it shows the commands care about the families,” said Sgt. Brian Czech, the embarkation chief with Marine Special Operations Regiment, MARSOC. “It gives us a chance to get out of the house and it’s something different. I just returned from a deployment in February and this was the first family event I went to. I’m happy to be out here with my family.”

Regional Command Southwest

More than 20 Marines assigned to Retrograde and Redeployment in support of Reset and Reconstitution Operational Group were recognized by the Installation Management Command (Forward) command sergeant major for their work inventorying and preparing millions of dollars worth of equipment to be distributed throughout

Afghanistan Nov. 1. Army Command Sgt. Maj. James King gave letters of appreciation to the R4OG Marines for their dedication in accomplishing the mission in just a short amount of time. “You never know how much you have till it's time to move,” King told the Marines. “I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your hard work for a job well done.” The Marines were requested

to sort through and inventory the serviceable gear, preparing it for shipping throughout Afghanistan. They started the task Oct. 29 and completed the work by Oct. 31. “The Army didn’t have the manpower here to complete the task, so we asked the Marines for some assistance,” said Wil Seda, the director of logistics for IMCOM (Fwd.). “These Marines were just fantastic.” The Marines sorted through

more than 100 oversized packing containers filled with a variety of equipment, eight 20-foot ISO containers, eight generators, nine blackwater suction trucks and 11 water containers. The gear deemed serviceable was packed and prepared to be shipped out across Afghanistan to units in need. “I estimate the Marines helped save the Army $3.5 million,” Seda said. “We are able to reuse

this gear and get it out to the battlefield where it's needed.” Despite the windy weather conditions in southern Afghanistan during the inventory, the Marines accomplished the mission several days before expected. “Those guys worked hard,” Seda said. “It was so dusty, but not once did anyone complain.” The Marines were happy to be recognized, but said they were just accomplishing their mission.


Marine Corps experience inspires future restaurant owner to the Philippines, and I was raised by my grandmother. When she passed away in ’94, I came back.” Once back stateside, he led a typical life through high school. Then Colobono decided to join the Marine Corps despite a family tradition of service in the Navy. “My uncle was a chief in the Navy, and so was my godfather,” said Colobono. “They thought I should join the Navy, but I wanted something different.” And that is what he chose, something different. “Honestly it was the challenge. I wanted to see if I could do it,” he added. “Eight and a half years later I’m still doing the same thing. It’s been fun.” The Marine Corps moved Colobono to quite a few places and gave him chances to do things he might not have


Regional Command Southwest

When deciding his job in the Marine Corps, Sgt. Jonathan Colobono decided to go with something to help him achieve his lifelong goal. “I like cooking for people. I’m a people person,” said Colobono, a food service specialist with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 7. “In the long run, I can open up my own restaurant. I figured I should choose a job I am going to use later.” Colobono found himself in the Philippines at an early age before heading back to the United States. “I was born in California, but my Mom was just starting her life in America,” said Colobono. “She sent me home

done anywhere else. “It was Iraq twice, then to Boston for recruiting, then to Japan for the (Marine Expeditionary Unit) and now Afghanistan,” said Colobono. “The Marine Corps gave me chances to see opportunities are out there, you just have to be smart enough to take them,” added Colobono. “Most kids go

to college when they’re 18,19 years old, and they don’t really take advantage of life.” Through the Marine Corps, Colobono took advantage of life and grasped those opportunities given to him. He plans to turn the experience he gained from the Marine Corps into his dream a restaurant.

It’s more than a car. It’s your future.

One simple gesture embodies Marine Corps history, tradition, brotherhood CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO

Regional Command Southwest

It is the defining moment during boot camp, and I remember it well. Tired, dirty and sweaty after the Crucible, the final test before recruits earn the title United States Marine, I marched back realizing weeks of training were leading me to this moment. I stood beside the other recruits in my boot camp platoon in front of the Marine Corps War Memorial, also known as the Iwo Jima Memorial. Our senior drill instructor stood before each of us, shook our right hand and placed a tiny piece of metal in the other. I did not dare turn from him as he placed the emblem in my hand. The iconic symbol of the Marine Corps, the Eagle, Globe and Anchor, felt heavy. In actuality, the tiny piece of metal did not weigh much, but the rich history of the Marine Corps combined with being in front of the Marine Corps War Memorial, a memorial dedicated to all the Marines who have fallen for their country, seemed to be embodied in it. With the emblem representing so much more than a piece of metal, I was surprised when I received a package from a

complete stranger before I deployed for the first time to Afghanistan, a year after I graduated boot camp. Wrapped tightly in a plastic bag, I found an Eagle, Globe and Anchor. Also included in the package was a letter from Staff Sgt. Charles E. Fessler, who served four years with 1st Marine Airway. He graduated recruit training from Parris Island during July 1942. “It was important to me to give this Eagle, Globe and Anchor to a new Marine about to deploy,” wrote Fessler. “It was a bit of a good luck charm and a token to remember an older Marine and those from the past.” It is hard to express the meaning of such a gesture. On the surface, it appeared to be a simple action accompanied with kind words. I knew Fessler, from Easton, Pa., saw it as something more, and it meant more to me too. “For me the Eagle, Globe and Anchor is a symbol for the entire Corps,” Fessler went on to write. “Something in common and a bond between new Marines and old.” The eagle represents the United States; the globe stands for worldwide service; the anchor for the rich naval traditions, but for many Marines it only

BROTHERS FROM 4A themselves with one another. The rest of the Kerlin family was shocked but pleased to hear the brothers got to work together. “Being dispersed across the U.S. makes it even better when we have a chance to get together,” said Matthew. While the chance to work together surprised the two Marine pilots, the fact they both chose to be pilots did not surprise anyone. Their father had his private pilot’s license. He took them flying when they were children. This sparked their love for flying at a young age. “As long as I can remember, he would take us up in his plane,” said Dustin. “We would fly low by the house, do tricks like

scratches the surface. The Eagle, Globe and Anchor is as recognizable a symbol as any in the military. It is a symbol of pride to all Marines. I earned the title United States Marine and the right to wear the Marine Corps emblem. It is something no one can take away from me. I realized when I first received the Eagle, Globe and Anchor from my senior drill instructor I would always be a Marine. It motivates me to remember it. I was the first Marine in my family, and I feel privileged each time I put on the symbol. I brought the Eagle, Globe and Anchor Fessler gave me to Afghanistan. When I go out on patrols, operations or to other bases, I make sure I have it with me. I keep it in one of the pouches on my flak jacket. It is a constant reminder of the rich history of the Corps. “It’s to remember those who have gone before you,” wrote Fessler. “The ones who fought and returned, and those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.” The emblem accompanied me when I went through Zamindawar with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, Regional Combat Team 6, during Operation Jaws. It was with me when I patrolled through Sangin

stalls and go to air shows.” For the brothers, the experiences shaped their lives. “He is the reason I am a Marine pilot, and it’s also his fault I am a helicopter pilot,” said Matthew. “Flying is his passion, and his knowledge of military aircraft is incredible. When Matthew was a young teen, he went to a small airport with an old Bell47, a two-bladed, light helicopter. Matthew paid $100 and experienced his first helicopter flight. Whether it was Matthew taking rides in helicopters or taking Dustin flying by their house, the two Marines were hooked.

NEEDS FROM 1A the Marine Corps time and money. Keeping up to date with equipment, software and training is not the only benefit of this endeavor. Upgrading to more efficient, compact equipment will reduce the MEU’s footprint on ship and in the field. The light strike vehicle, for example, is an all-terrain vehicle that was recently purchased for missions that need quick mobility. It also provides a smaller footprint than the traditional Humvee. “The light strike vehicle takes up about 25 to 30 percent less space than a Humvee,” said Duesterhaus. “It doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you’re embarking them in a well deck of a ship, you now have additional space for other equipment.” Reducing the footprint, procuring more efficient equipment and staying ahead of the power curve before predeployment training will improve the overall readiness of the MEU. “The hallmark (of the MEU) in the past has been to be light, to get in and get out,” said Duesterhaus. He added that the MEU took advantage of a rare opportunity to be better prepared to composite and deploy forward to answer the Nation’s call as America’s number one force in readiness.

with 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, RCT-6. When I spent time with the Marines with 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, RCT-6 in Trek Nawa, it was always in my flak jacket. I enlisted with the goal to deploy. When my gunnery sergeant asked me where I wanted to go to after my military occupational specialty school, I told him confidently, “Anywhere deployable.” To me, it is what being a Marine is about. Marines are warriors, regardless of our job. It does not matter if I work in a supply lot, an administrative office or am a machinegunner in an infantry platoon, we are all trained to fight and to accomplish the mission. Fessler served the Corps during WWII. He was not involved in a bloody landing or combat like many of his brothers because of his job, but he saw many of his friends suffer. I think this added to him wanting to reach out to me. As Marines, we went through the training, the 24-hour duty shifts, the long formations and the loss of our brothers. We understand each other in a way our family and friends can not fully comprehend. These shared experiences link Marines from all walks of life. It is that sense of camaraderie

Now many years later and thousands of miles away from their hometown, the brothers got an early holiday gift. For one

connecting the generations of Marines. I did not fully understand the bond until I became a one. “I feel there is a spirit existing within the Marine Corps not evident in any other branch of the military,” wrote Fessler In the Marine Corps we use the words camaraderie and brotherhood to describe our relationships. It is something we share regardless of age, race, sex or religion. I was privileged to witness the camaraderie between Marines firsthand. I respect the other military branches. They are part of the military family, and we are in the fight together. But the camaraderie between Marines is different. The Eagle, Globe and Anchor bonds Marines together regardless of when they graduated recruit training. Fessler graduated more than 40 years before I was born. The bond pushed him to make a simple gesture to a Marine he never met. It is the same thing motivating me to one day give the same Eagle, Globe and Anchor to a young Marine. The simple piece of crafted metal weighs little more than a paperweight, but carries the history, tradition and spirit of the Marine Corps, and I will never forget the day I received it.
