arines with 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division and 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group conducted a weeklong explosive training package for Marines with the units aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, November 5 through 7. The training was an opportunity for the Marines with 8th ESB to use explosives, which is a rare opportunity for a lot of the Marines. “We typically don’t deal with demolition charges much, but

we know how to use them,” said Lance Cpl. Derek Michael, a combat engineer with 8th ESB. “I’m all for doing training no matter what it is and so far I’m having a great time being refreshed on (demolition) charges.” The purpose of the training was for the junior Marines to be refreshed on basic, advanced and expedient charges. They also used the training as a chance for Marines who hadn’t used explosives before to get a feel for their capabilities. “All training is beneficial in some way,” said Michael. “You never know what kind of obstacle you will come across while deployed and what you may have to do to overcome it.”

For the instructors the training is beneficial to them in a different way, mentioned Cpl. Rollie Lemons, an instructor for the demolition course. “For us, when we teach the Marines we like seeing them excel from coming in here not remembering or never having this training, and by the time they leave they have the knowledge to apply while (deployed),” said Lemons. “I plan to be a teacher when I get out of the Marine Corps and being a teacher here even benefits me by getting a chance to use different teaching methods to see what works best for the students.” The Marines spent two days in the classroom learning about the different types of explosives,

spent the rest of the week prepping explosives, and then using them as the training required “This training can be used for a variety of things,” said 1st Lt. Patrick Mayne, the officer in charge of the range. “It can be used for anything from destroying to creating. One technique we could use this for is to blow up trees in a certain way so they fall and create a road blockade.” With great training like this all of the participants from junior Marines to the instructors wish they could do it more often. “What we do here has the potential to save lives and has in the past,” said Lemons. “We are engineers; our job is universal from finding (improvised explosive devices)

to building or destroying, and after the Marines are trained with explosives they have the knowledge they need to do their job to the best of their capabilities.”

26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit returned to Camp Lejeune Nov. 12 after providing support to disaster relief operations in New York following Hurricane Sandy. The 26th MEU, with aviation support from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 467 and Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366 out of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, assisted local, federal emergency and disaster relief organizations in beginning clean up of the brutally damaged areas. “We stand united when disasters like this happen. We came together to get the job done,” said Cpl. Dylan Pierce, an operations clerk. “It goes beyond just the Marine Corps. We went out as Americans helping Americans.” The MEU deployed Nov. 1, flying north in MV-22B Osprey organic to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 (Reinforced), the MEU’s aviation combat element. Marines and sailors flew to the USS Wasp, an amphibious assault ship specifically designed and positioned for the purpose of supporting the 26th MEU’s mission. “I saw neighbors helping neighbors. That kind of attitude – that kind of resiliency – is one of the things that makes America great. The ability to look around, see something needs to get done, and begin helping ourselves,” said Capt. Glenn Jensen, anti-terrorism force protection officer. With elements from all of the reinforcements of the unit embarked aboard ship, 26th MEU Marines and sailors bePhoto by Cpl. Michael S.

New 20-acre facility to provide custody care for patients with dementia, Alzheimers The State of North Carolina completed a new care facility in Kingston. The State Veterans Home on Hull Road will be ready to receive patients after Jan. 1. Veterans Affairs recently built a 100-bed facility and plans to staff it with 170 employees. This may bring great relief for the veteran residents of Eastern North Carolina, as the closest in-care VA facility located in Fayetteville. This new facility in Kingston cost $13 million, is about 110,000 square feet and sits on approximately 20 acres. The site can handle custodycare patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s along with other disabling

illnesses requiring hospitalization. With the addition of this facility, North Carolina currently has three care facilities of this particular specialty under the State of North Carolina. Another new facility of this kind is located in Black Mountain in Western North Carolina. The retired affairs coordinator for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune personally visited the North Carolina State Veteran Hospital located behind the VA Medical Center in Fayetteville several times. It is recognized as the second best Alzheimer and dementia care facility in the nation. The staff provides kind and professional care and the

Retired Affairs Office receives excellent positive comments from the patients living in this facility. For veterans to reside in the State Veteran facilities they must have an Honorable Discharge, be eligible for VA care and be a resident for at least two years. For every Alzheimer or dementia patient, there is usually someone providing support. Caregiving for an Alzheimers patient can be an all-consuming task. This disease is tormenting and very frustrating for families who must deal with it on a daily basis. For further information on assistance with domiciled or respite care please contact the RAO Office at 451-0287.

Single Marine Program offers something for everyone Young Marines checking into Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune have access to a great program called the Single Marine Program, which focuses on quality of life and entertainment, and has something for everyone. Susan Goodrich, Camp Lejeune SMP branch head, describes the program in more detail. RR – SMP trips are one of the most exciting aspects of the program; what is the best way to get signed up for a trip and how quickly do the trips fill up? SG – The SMP offers a variety of trips to amusement parks, concerts, comedy shows, Washington, D.C., Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., New York, the Bahama Islands and much more. Marines and sailors interested in upcoming trips can visit their local recreation center to register. Our staff is available to take registration seven days a week. Most trips fill up fast, and Marines and sailors are encouraged to register as soon as possible in order to reserve a seat on an SMP bus. RR – What types of improvements were made to the SMP here at Camp Lejeune? SG – One of the most exciting improvements is our new 55-passenger

coach bus. The bus is beautifully wrapped and has comfortable seating, flat screen televisions and individual phone chargers, making trips more comfortable for Marines and sailors. Recreation is only one of the three components of the SMP. Quality of life and community involvement are the two other focuses of the program. An interested single Marine or sailor arriving at MCB Camp Lejeune should find out who the SMP representative is for their unit. The representatives are the eyes, ears and voice to what’s going on in the SMP. From minor to major issues potentially affecting quality of life, finding out what the upcoming opportunities are for events in the recreation centers and trips away from the base, or discovering how they can give back to the local community through volunteer opportunities, the SMP is a vital resource a Marine or sailor can tap into. RR – With six recreation centers in the Camp Lejeune area, what are some of the things setting them apart from each other? SG – Each of our six recreation centers offer computer and movie rooms, television viewing areas, multi-purpose areas including Ping-

Pong and pool tables, video gaming and quiet areas for reading and lap top usage. Snack bars are available in each center and outside of each center there are grills available for cookouts, volleyball and horseshoe pits, or sitting areas for those looking to enjoy a little sunshine. Differences include size, layouts and color schemes, but they all offer a home away from home for all single Marines and sailors. RR – Where is the best place to go to find the most current information on the SMP? SG – There are several great resources where a Marine or sailor can find information: their SMP unit representative, our SMP Headquarters office located on M Street across from the main post office open Monday through Friday, the SMP recreation centers open seven days a week, our website www.mccslejeune.com/smp, or our Facebook page www.facebook. com/mccscamplejeune.smp. With so many activities happening at the recreation centers and exciting new trips always being planned, the SMP provides a great place to get to know other Marines with similar interests. Always remember, here at MCCS we are proud to serve those who serve.

Special-Purpose MAGTF Africa Trains for Evacuation Operations SGT. AMBER BLANCHARD

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marines and sailors with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa conducted noncombatant evacuation operations training by setting up an evacuation control center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Nov. 8. Instructors with Special Operations Training Group trained the Marines and sailors in establishing an ECC and a humanitarian assistance distribution center for noncombatant evacuation operations. “We’ve done an engineering tape walkthrough with the leaders, and now we’re doing our first practical application,” said Marty Klotz, a stability subject matter expert with SOTG. Klotz added this type of training is required for

any MAGTF, and the Marines and sailors will be conducting more practical application exercises before becoming certified. In the morning, Marines and sailors set up a humanitarian assistance distribution center to learn how to distribute food and water to individuals during a crisis such as an earthquake or hurricane, when food and potable water may be scarce. During a NEO, Marines and sailors set up an ECC to process American citizens and designated host nation and third country nationals for evacuation from an area of potential danger. “If something were to happen to an embassy, we’ll basically take American citizens in and get them to safety,” said Sgt. Jacob Kincaid, a combat engineer with Special-

Purpose MAGTF Africa. Kincaid added the day’s training provided a basic understanding of how to set up and run an ECC under conditions similar to those they may face while deployed. Learning via practical application is the hallmark of understanding how and why Marines and sailors need to conduct things a certain way. “It’s one thing to read about [humanitarian operations] or hear about it, but it’s another to watch it in the process,” said Kincaid. “Everything we learned is really coming together and it makes sense.” Special-Purpose MAGTF Africa is currently training for a number of operations they may perform during their upcoming deployment.

A ferryboat taxis local villagers across the Helmand River in Sangin, Afghanistan, Nov. 10. Currently, the local populace has the option of taking the ferry, walking through the river at certain passable areas, or taking a detour more than 55 kilometers out of the way to get across the river.

SANGIN DISTRICT, AFGHANISTAN

Operation Golden Gate to connect Sangin, Musa Qal’ah CPL. ANTHONY WARD JR. Regional Command Southwest

Ground was broken for the start of Operation Golden Gate in the Sangin District of Helmand province, Afghanistan, Nov. 4. Marines, sailors and soldiers are working together in an effort to build a bridge more than 24 feet wide; it will span more than 150 feet across the Helmand River, allowing for easy passage for the local people. “This is a joint project to build a permanent bridging solution to connect the east and west banks of the river,” said 2nd Lt. Benjamin Nelson, a mission commander for Combat Logistics Battalion 2, Combat Logistics Regiment 15. The current bridge site is near the northern cause-

way, which once housed a bridge that connected the people of Sangin and Musa Qal’ah. “The northern causeway was the site of an existing medium girder bridge,” said Lt. j.g. James A. Bruno, platoon commander with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133. “Over time, the river expanded west, making it no longer feasible to have the bridge there.” Still in the early stages of construction, the bridge involves each different unit to play specific roles. “Right now, Engineer Company is working on the roadwork improvements,” said Nelson. “An Army unit will place the bridge, and the Navy is doing the majority of the work on the western side.” Units involved include 2nd Bn., 7th Marine Regiment, providing security,

the 20th and 178th Army Engineer Bn., the 12th Georgian Bn., and more units scheduled to support as the construction progresses. With just a week of construction completed, the bridge is showing visible signs of progress. HESCO barriers are lining the banks, leveled out ground is expanding with each pass of the bulldozers, and the area leading up to the bridge is resembling a road more each day. “I would say today we are at about 20 percent,” said Bruno. “We still have a lot of work to do.” The work each of the units is putting in will culminate into a final, finished product to not only aid and bolster the community, but the military forces in the region. “I understand the market is 55 kilometers out of the way if you’re taking normal routes, which is a significant detour,” said Bruno. “This is going to be easier for (the locals’) Thursday market trips.” “Although the bridge

Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus, Regional Command (Southwest) commanding general, and RC(SW) Sgt. Maj. Harrison Tanksley, flew throughout southern Helmand province to shake every Marine’s hand in honor of the 237th Marine Corps Birthday Nov. 10. Maj. Gen. Gregg Sturdevant, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward) commanding general, visited the northern areas of Helmand province to wish Marines a happy birthday. During each stop, Gurganus and Tanksley addressed all available Marines and posed for group photographs, whether there were 10 Marines or 50 on the outlying bases. “I just came down here to say ‘Happy Birthday,’” said the general. “There is no place

I would rather be than out here with you on the birthday. Every other Marine around the world who is celebrating tonight is talking about you out here. You are doing what they all want to be doing right now. And you don’t have to make sure your ribbons are on straight.” The general also reflected on the accomplishments of Marines in Helmand province. “You guys have done a great job out here putting the (Afghan National Security Forces) in the lead,” said Gurganus. “Are they Marines? No. But, we don’t need them to be Marines. We need them to be able to provide security for their people, and they are doing it.” Tanksley emphasized the general’s comments to each group. “Marines have been performing tremendous acts for 237 years,” said Tanksley. “You all are no different. You

make the commanding general and me proud on a daily basis. On this birthday of our Corps, we are honored and privileged to come out and see each and every one of you.” The general also requested one thing from the Marines as he spoke to each one, whether in a group formation or on duty in a guard tower. “Next time you call home to your wife or your mother, or any of your family, tell them I said thank you,” said Gurganus. “Without their love and support, we would not be as successful as we are today. For that, I am thankful.” Maj. Gen. Gurganus and Tanksley stopped at 11 bases in southern Helmand province, including a stop at Camp Dwyer for a cake cutting ceremony. They concluded the tour at Camp Leatherneck where they finished the night with the RC(SW) cake cutting ceremony.

M249 Light Machine Gun: Endangered species for Marines in Afghanistan SGT. JAMES MERCURE

Regional Command Southwest

As full integration of the Infantry Automatic Rifle into the Marine Corps’ arsenal becomes complete, the M249 Light Machine Gun, formerly the Squad Automatic Weapon, slowly fades into the history of the Corps. The SAW saw action since 1984 and has protected Marines since. Replaced by an automatic rifle of similar size and weight of the M16A4 service rifle already issued to rank and file Marines, the familiarity with the new weapon is almost instant. “The IAR has fewer moving parts than the SAW does making

it a lot more ‘grunt friendly,’” said Lance Cpl. Tyler Shaulis, an IAR gunner with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 7. “It has a direct piston system, so there are fewer jams. It stays cleaner, longer with less carbon build up after it’s been fired. The muscle memory stays the same with it as it would an M16. If an IAR gunner goes down, any Marine could grab the weapon and lay down accurate suppressive fire without thinking twice.” For the Marines at this austere forward operating base, the change was a positive one, with only a few minor suggestions for the new rifle issued to them

Afghan brothers recite Oath of Allegiance SGT. JAMES MERCURE

Regional Command Southwest

More than 1,000 Afghan soldiers with the 215th Maiwand Corps swore the Afghan Army’s Oath of Allegiance during a ceremony on Camp Shorabak Nov. 8. “This oath is a promise,” said Brig. Gen. Zamin Hassan Ehsan, the 215th Maiwand Corps chief of staff, as the soldiers echoed his words in unison. “The promise is to help your friends, help your country and help the people.” When the ceremony concluded, more than 1,000 Afghan soldiers took the oath and will soon be sent throughout Helmand province to their new duty stations as a surge of force for the Afghan Army. “You are soldiers today, but you will be the future of Afghanistan tomorrow,” said Hassan Ehsan to the soldiers taking the oath. “The responsibility of the country will soon be yours. You must be there for the people because they are your people. You must protect their land because it is your land. This is our home. We are one brother fighting against one enemy, and we will protect the people.”

before they deployed in early October. “It’s a huge improvement to have a more accurate weapon,” said Staff Sgt. Mathew Henderson, a platoon commander with 2nd Bn., 7th Marines, currently on his fourth combat deployment. “We want to broaden the application of its use. For instance, using an IAR in a sniper platoon instead of a SAW would be a huge advantage.” To potentially lower costs, Marines with the battalion are looking at ways to implement the IAR in place of a more expensive weapon already in use. “This weapon platform could be used as a multipurpose weapon

system in the infantry squad, like using an IAR as an automatic rifle and as a designated marksman rifle,” said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Chris Jones, infantry weapons officer, 2nd Bn., 7th Marines. “In the current fight when there is a limited exposure and a fleeting target that blends in with the local populace, it is more important to have a more accurate rifle with a better optic. If you can get (positive identification) faster, you can kill the enemy rather than a weapon that provides audible suppression. Audible suppression being the bullets hitting everywhere but on target, and the enemy only hearing the sounds

of gunfire.” “In a time of fiscal restraints, one rifle potentially serving two purposes would be huge,” said Jones. Although the SAW will be missed by some of the “saltier” Marines who used it before, the IAR brings about a new breed of machine gunner and the squad he supports with it. “We’re going back to what we had in WWII with the Browning Automatic Rifle,” Henderson said. “Since the 1980s, we gave the infantry squad the light machine gun, and now we’re having another shift in the Marine Corps to get back to what we were doing right the first time.”

ailing from the 50th state in the United States, Wailuku, Hawaii, native, Lance Cpl. Michael J. Bumanglag left the sunny beaches and surfing for the sands and mountains of Afghanistan. With an ambition for a change of scenery and new adventures, Bumanglag decided to join the Marine Corps. “I just wanted to go out and see the world,” said

Bumanglag. “A Marine was just always something I wanted to be since I was little. It looked cool in movies.” While his mind was set on joining the Marine Corps, his parents were not initially supportive of his decision. “My mom wasn’t about it,” said Bumanglag jokingly. “She made a big deal about it. My father said the same thing. He didn’t want me to go in any service.” With his mind made up and his parents slowly supporting his choice, he jumped head first into the military lifestyle. Bumanglag has an

affinity for the “cool” things, even growing up he spent his time doing things most would have to travel to enjoy. “Growing up in Hawaii was all right,” said Bumanglag. “You go to the beach, surf a lot, go fishing, diving, camping, just a lot of nature stuff.” Being so active growing up allowed him to transition into his current life as a rifleman fairly easy. “It was easier than most. A lot of people struggle with it,” said Bumanglag about joining the infantry. “I grew up outdoors and being active, and it was pretty easy for me.” Now serving with 2nd

Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 7 Bumanglag had an opportunity to experience all new adventures and has his sights set on more in the future. “We’re from Twentynine Palms, so all the training people do for (Enhanced) Mojave Viper we do year round,” said Bumanglag. “So it’s a lot of live fire ranges and shooting a lot of different weapons.” One weapon he hopes to pick up is a sniper rifle. “I was thinking of becoming a scout sniper,” said Bumanglag. “My recruiter was one, and he told me about it. I plan on trying out for the next (indoctrination) as soon as we get back from deployment.” With a little more than a year in the Corps, Bumanglag’s career is just starting, and his new adventures are just what he had hoped.

As a senior in high school, Pfc. Clifford Dietrich made the decision to defend his country. A year and a half later he was on his way to Afghanistan. Dietrich, a data helpdesk clerk with Regimental Combat Team 7, graduated high school in June 2011. Four months later, he reported to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. After graduating from recruit training and completing training for his job, Dietrich was stationed at Twentynine Palms, Calif. Two months later he was on a plane to Afghanistan. “Originally, I wasn’t expecting to come out to Afghanistan until half way through the deployment, but the date got moved up,” said Dietrich. “I had only been in the fleet for two months before they sent me out here. But this deployment has gone pretty well. I was able to learn a lot about my job.” Joining the military is not common in the Dietrich family, but he joined the Marine Corps to pave his own path in life. “I’m the first member of my family to join any branch of the military,” Dietrich said. “I wanted to better myself, find a way to support my wife and pay for college. The military was the way to fulfill all those goals.” Dietrich chose to become a Marine after listening to a friend’s father about his time serving in the Marine Corps. “What he told me about all his experiences and how much he enjoyed the Marine Corps pushed me toward joining,” Dietrich said. Dietrich chose his current job because he wanted to get as much experience and knowledge in the information technology field as possible. Before enlisting, Dietrich completed a few classes in college. While deployed, he fixes computers and helps people with any account issues

they may have. “He gets everything done I tell him to do,” said Sgt. Jeff Bergquist, data helpdesk supervisor. “He’s a pretty reliable guy when it comes to completing tasks. Even though he’s only been with us for a little bit, he’s good and learns as much as he can about his job.” The Marine Corps celebrated its 237th birthday Nov. 10. As tradition, Dietrich, the youngest Marine present during RCT-7’s ceremony, received the second piece of cake from the oldest Marine present. For Dietrich, this was a first. Dietrich was a recruit going through recruit training during his first Marine Corps birthday. “It was an honor to be there,” Dietrich said. “When I was going through boot camp I never thought I would be in this position. I feel honored I got the opportunity to participate in the Marine Corps birthday while deployed to Afghanistan.” For Dietrich, his participation in the ball was a humbling experience. “I was standing next to the oldest Marine we have in the regiment and one of the longest serving Marines we have. Just getting a chance to be in a ceremony with him was amazing,” Dietrich said. “It was something I got to go through not too many Marines will ever get the chance to do. It was a great experience.” Editor’s note: This article is part of a series wherein every week we recognize an individual Marine or sailor with Regimental Combat Team 7. The Marines and sailors of RCT-7 are dedicated, disciplined and driven to accomplish the mission, and the Marine in this article has earned special recognition for standing out among these professionals.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. MEU FROM 1A “I think it shows no matter where you are, we can be there,â€? said Pierce. “We were called up and deployed within 24 hours.â€? Marines on the ground assisted by clearing debris out of the streets and alleys, allowing Marine engineers to pump standing water out of neighborhoods flooded by the storm surge. “I appreciate being able to go out and make a difference when someone needed help,â€? said Pierce. Other teams of Marines cleaned up Staten Island, filling dozens of trash trucks full of debris from destroyed homes and infrastructure that had washed inland and was blocking points of access throughout the narrow streets. Marines also assisted Red Cross personnel in handing out food and supplies to families whose houses were unlivable. MEU Marines and sailors were in support of missions assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and worked alongside personnel from the Navy, National Guard and Air Force. “There were all four armed services, together, in one location, moving out, accomplishing the same goal,â€? said Jensen. “It wasn’t just us.â€? All of this was completed while operating from USS Wasp, relying on the ship, rather on the already-fragile local infrastructure, resources and facilities taxed to capacity. Marines were able to avoid hang-ups on clogged and damaged roads by flying or riding landing craft straight to the affected areas, and then recovering each night back to the ship. Seabased operations provided the MEU a degree of versatility not afforded to other units operating in the area, due to their reliance on wheeled vehicles trying to navigate the damaged infrastructure. Marines were able to get exactly where they were needed, accomplish their task quickly and effectively, and leave without requiring support from local organizations. “The ability for us to not be in the situation – to not be a drain on resources in the situation – is huge. It’s what makes the MEU successful in a lot of different operations – for a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief situation especially. Instead of having to feed us, house us ‌ we’re able to take care of our own basic necessities, and it’s all done on the ship,â€? said Jensen. The 26th MEU, currently training for its upcoming deployment, will continue readying itself for future operations all over the world, both afloat and ashore during its 2013 deployment. As an expeditionary force operating from the sea, the MEU is a Marine AirGround Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response, and limited contingency operations.

Thanksgiving fishing tips Tricks to reeling in big fall catches

While redundancy is typically nothing to cheer about I have to repeat the same thing I’ve been saying for the last few weeks. The speckled trout bite is as hot as it ever was. It is off the charts. If you ask me, this is a welcome redundant, and a welcomed abundance. The abundance of speckled trout might be attributed to recent regulations limiting size and bag limits, or a belated response to the trout kills of recent winters. It is possible it is all of the above, as well as other unknown natural factors. Whatever the reason, the speckled trout bite kept anglers on their toes for the sixth week in a row. Speckled trout are caught in all the creeks and jetties I enumerated over the past weeks. Interestingly, the bite, which was good in the surf, held up surprisingly well in the surf from Oceanana Pier to Ft. Macon. Even in the 58-degree, dirty, rough surf, while it persisted for days on end, could not stop the trout from biting down on the lines of anglers who dotted the coast. Most anglers opted to use MirrOlures, which trout bit as fast as anglers

could cast them into the surf. I heard one angler was fishing the dirty waves east of Oceanana Pier, made his limit on four casts and went home. You can also guess correctly MirrOlures are flying off the local tackle shop shelves at a great pace. Both Chasin’ Tails and Freeman’s Bait and Tackle on the Atlantic Beach Causeway were reordering and restocking their MirrOlures after a busy weekend of trout fishing. Over the past few weeks, I reached my limits from the surf and creeks, as well as areas like Trout Creek and the Haystacks where fish are as large as three pounds. My favorite baits are soft plastic shrimp or fish on a cork, and the 17–MR suspending MirrOlures, the 808 color or the bedazzling electric chicken. My only request is for everyone to please follow the 14–inch size and four fish per day creel limits. Too many anglers are ignoring these limits, which will wreak havoc on the coast if speckled trout are overfished. One question nobody was able to answer last week was why the area around Beaufort was so hot. Many of the local fish spawn in the Neuse Pamlico area, and as they move to their winter homes, either internal creeks or offshore, they readily move down Core Creek and Core Sound, towards Beaufort Inlet. Other fish hot last

week were the puffer, blow toad, swell fish and sea squab. We already had a bumper season at the piers, from the surf and around the inlets. The northern puffers are sluggish moving by the use of fins rather than by forceful body action and are found in large rambling schools. These are opportunistic feeders, feeding mainly on available invertebrates, scallops, jingle shells, clams, oysters, barnacles, crabs, shrimp, sea urchins and sea squirts. Their powerful jaws and parrot-fish–like teeth enable them to crush and devour anything they capture. Northern puffers have a wide temperature tolerance and can be found in water from 46 to 93 degrees Fahrenheit. We usually see them in the fall and early spring, but they were caught this summer from Bogue Pier. Catching them doesn’t take an engineering degree, just a small piece of shrimp on a standard hi-lo two hook rigs with small No. 4 to 8 long shank hooks. These very tasty critters are usually eight to 14–inches in length and provide a nearly bone– free meat after cleaning. With their skin as rough as it is, gloves are recommended. To clean, cut through bone behind the head and pull off skin. Innards come with it leaving a nice piece of chicken looking meat. Some cut meat off of bone leaving pure boneless meat. The inflating of the puffer fish is a defense mechanism for these slow moving fish. In the water

they inflate with water, out of the water they can just as easily suck in air for inflation, and they are always fun to watch. These days there are also some sea mullet in the mix with the blowfish, along with some red and black drum. Over the past weekend, Oceanana pier reported big puffers and speckled trout, but are now closed for the season. Bogue Pier reported nice catches of red and black drum, some sea mullet, lots of puffers and keeper trout mixed in with shorts. On Topsail Island, Seaview Pier reported sea mullet, red and black drum, and trout. Earlier last week there were also blues and some pompano.

Heroes’ students master sport stacking skills JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

magine joining hundreds of thousands of strangers in an attempt to break the world record for the most people sport stacking at multiple locations in one day. Most people don’t even know what sport stacking is, let alone do they try to break a record for doing it. But it’s exactly what students at Heroes Elementary School did aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Nov. 15. From the hours of 8 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., they

spent at least 30 minutes stacking and unstacking everything from small cups to plastic cups to giant buckets. The attempt to break the world record was held last Thursday and involved more than

450,000 people across the globe. From Thailand to Indiana, people of all ages took part in the Stack Up! event to break the Guiness book of world records. The rules were simple enough. In order to be counted, more than 25 stackers had to participate for at least half an hour at a designated location. Stacking could take place any time day or night during the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 11:29 p.m. Nov. 15. Once participants completed their stacking session, they were required to act swiftly to verify the number of stackers. The numbers were added on the World Sport Stacking Association website as they were reported by participants. Each sport stacking location was encouraged to make their stacking time worthwhile by asking for donations to help support a local charity or nonprofit. SEE STACK 7B

Approximately 600 personnel deployed to Afghanistan raised nearly $19,000.

Participants in the Susan G. Komen five-kilometer Race for the Cure gathered to do their part in the fight against breast cancer Nov. 4. Approximately 600 service members and civilian contractors came together to run or walk the 5K in an effort to raise money for people directly affected by breast cancer and the research for a cure. “I contacted the Susan G. Komen foundation in San Diego back in June,” said Gunnery Sgt. Allan Anderson, the Camp Leatherneck provost sergeant and race coordinator. “I wanted to do something to make a difference, and they were excited to help us out and

coordinate this race out here. Just like most people, breast cancer affected my family as well. “More so, I just wanted to do something to make a difference even though we’re out here and busy,” added Anderson. “I figured there was something I could do, and figured we’d start this kind of run out here. We opened it up to the entire base and tried to get as much support as we could. We had nearly 600 people attend and raised just under $19,000.” The Susan G. Komen foundation was established in 1982 in an effort to end breast cancer throughout the world. Throughout the years, it invested nearly $2 billion in fulfilling their promise. “I think it was great.

It was way more than I would have expected or hoped for,” Anderson said. “I’m proud of our small team who put together a lot of effort. A lot of people came out and showed their support. I think everybody needs to do his or her small part, whatever it may be. Whatever little we can do, then each of our little efforts will turn into something much greater.” Petty Officer 1st Class Carol Cuffee was diagnosed with breast cancer during 2002 and participated in the event Sunday. “I started participating in these events in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, and I never thought I would have cancer. But that’s the thing when you get involved with these organizations, you never know when its going

to knock on your door,” said Cuffee, an operational administration support assistant with Naval Criminal Investigative Service. “It was a beautiful event with so many people. It was very good to see so many people giving up their time for this cause. Cancer not only affects the patient, but it affects their family members and friends. Cancer doesn’t have an age group it targets. Each step you take is one step toward finding a cure, and it’s what it’s all about. When I fought cancer in 2002, the treatments were much better than what they had back in the ‘70s or ‘80s because of events like this, which raise money for research.” Anderson, along with Staff Sgt. Natalie Calderon and Sgt. Irma Rosales,

coordinated and organized the event. “I try to participate in the runs back in the states. We didn’t have any over here, and I’m glad I got to do something while I’m here,” said Calderon, a criminal investigator with the Provost Marshals Office. “I met a lot of people who had breast cancer at a young age. I saw a lot of people diagnosed with it. I think having Carol Cuffee out there today kind of brings it home for people who haven’t experienced cancer in their family. I felt like it was very successful, and I’m very happy I got to participate in it.” Rosales, watch commander with PMO, was affected by breast cancer in her family and participated in the event.

“I just recently had an aunt who finished her radiation therapy for breast cancer and she’s my motivation for doing the race,” Rosales said. “It was Gunnery Sgt. Anderson’s idea. He got the idea from doing a race just like it through the same foundation a few months earlier. Staff Sgt. Calderon and myself have personal reasons for assisting. We both have family members who either went through breast cancer or are unfortunately deceased because of it. “Once we get back stateside, I’ll continue to participate in events like this,” continued Rosales. “We have some awesome contacts now because of this event, and we definitely know where to go and how to assist them in the future.”

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. STACK FROM 2B For the Eagles at Heroes Elementary School, the event was a chance to come together as a school to do something active in a productive manner to benefit their overall health. Since sport stacking involves both hands, hand–eye coordination, intense dedication and patience, it helps students develop skills to use in other areas of life. “You use both sides of your brain when you sport stack,” explained Sunni McCarthy, a physical education teacher at Heroes Elementary School. “It helps develop both sides, so kids are better at reading and writing, as well as math, science and other things.” To ensure every child at Heroes Elementary School was given the same opportunity to participate in the attempt to break the world record, McCarthy and the staff collaborated to bring in every class of students to the gym for their special period. During their special period, they spent time with McCarthy and physical education teacher Ashley Smith sport stacking at various locations. With the help of other Eagle staff members, students sport stacked plastic cups in special patterns, raced each other to see who could sport stack the fastest, and sport stacked while doing other activities such as push-ups. “We have different stations in the gym for the kids to visit,” explained McCarthy. “We have staff members who came to help. Our music teacher is out here. Our assistant principal came out to participate and is sport stacking with a bunch of our students.” As students entered the gym, they were divided into groups and sent to a starting station. They rotated clockwise around the gymnasium, stopping at more than 10 stations to try their hand at a new sport stacking challenge. “There is a certain method to sport stacking, depending on what you’re doing,” explained McCarthy. “We have three-three-three cup stations, where you have three sets of three cups you stack into three groups. We also have three-six-three, miniature cups, timing mats and other things. The students rotate and get to go to the various stations while they are sport stacking.” With Smith telling students when to start and stop stacking and timing their movements carefully, the participants artfully stacked and unstacked at each station. At certain stations, they were allowed to stack as many cups as they could, while others were dedicated to more traditional stacking style, such as the threethree-three station and the three-six-three station. “We usually wouldn’t let them just stack and stack, but today is fun and we want them to enjoy themselves,” said McCarthy, smiling as she encouraged students who wanted to show her their tall stack of large buckets in the middle of the gymnasium floor. “They’re having fun.” In addition to trying to break the world record, Heroes Elementary School students brought items to donate to two animal rescue programs in Onslow County. With bags and boxes full of necessities for abandoned and stray cats and dogs, students kept a constant check on which class provided the most goods for TopCat and Cause for Paws. “I’m going to throw a pizza party for the class who donates the most to our two charities,” said McCarthy. “We’ll have to wait and see who that is.”

Chatori Major (center) signs her National Letter of Intent to play basketball at the University of North Carolina at Asheville Friday. Major signed the letter in the Lejeune High School gymnasium aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune surrounded by family, friends, teachers and fellow student-athletes who cheered her on from the stands. MAJOR FROM 1B wasn’t long enough for Major to get her fill of the sport she loves. She spent her summers traveling with the Durham-based AU basketball team, perfecting her craft and expanding her abilities. With her parents and LHS coaches supporting her every step of the way, Major managed to snag one of UNC-Asheville’s coveted letters of intent for women’s’ basketball along with a full scholarship to the four-year state-funded college, proving hard work and dedication can pay off in a big way. “Not too many girls get something like this,” said Major’s basketball coach and LHS athletic director Debra Bryant. “We are very proud of her. She’s done very well.” After verbally agreeing to play at UNC– Asheville earlier in the

fall, Major waited for her national letter of intent to be drafted and sent to sign in front of her friends and family. Among those in the gymnasium were her very excited teammates from the women’s basketball team who crowded around her to hug and congratulate Major and her family on the signing. While she is officially attending the University of North Carolina at Asheville next year, Major still has another season of LHS basketball to participate in this year. While her teammates attended the signing to support her, she was already looking toward the season ahead of them. “I want to continue to get better overall this year,” said Major. “I still need to support my team and do my best for them.

“I’ll be playing basketball until it’s time for me to not play anymore,” she added. “I won’t quit any time soon.” Major’s parents were both in attendance and sat beside their daughter as she signed her paperwork. Her two younger sisters were also in attendance at the signing. “It���s really exciting to watch her finally do this,” said Major’s mother. “She’s given up summers to play travel ball.” Her father readily agreed. “I’m glad it’s finally happened,” he said. “It’s exciting to see her doing this. Chatori put in a lot of time playing and practicing, and I’m glad to know it’s paid off. “Our whole family was waiting,” Major’s father added. “We wanted to see this happen for her, and it’s a proud

moment for all of us.” Major’s parents are already planning to make multiple trips to watch the UNCAsheville bulldog’s in action next season, and said they would be in the stands whenever possible to watch. “My parents are my biggest supporters,” said Major. “I wouldn’t be here without everything they do for me. Mom was there for everything, especially when my dad was in Afghanistan. “My AU coach and teammates were also a big part in getting me here today, and of course I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without Coach Bryant and my team at Lejeune.” Her father laughed as his daughter talked to happy teammates. “You know, Asheville’s mascot is the bulldog,” he said. “That’s Chatori now; forever a bulldog.”

T

he birth of every branch of the U.S. military is significant in our nation’s history, but it’s through traditions and legacies those birthdays are carried on. The Marine Corps takes special pride in honoring past and present Marines and their dedication to teamwork with other services by hosting the Joint Daytime Ceremony. This year’s event was held at the newly-refurbished Liversedge Field with hundreds in attendance aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Nov. 2. While the Marine Corps celebrated 237 years of existence in 2012, it also celebrated the combined cooperation between the Naval services with the Navy and Coast Guard units aboard the base participating. In past years, Army and Air Force units aboard the base have also joined the celebration and renewed their dedication. The ceremony included representation from units across MCB Camp Lejeune, featuring Marines wearing historical uniforms, and the cutting and passing of the Marine Corps birthday cake. “Re-dedication of the core values, traditions and virtues of the Marine Corps is what this event is all about,” said Lt. Cmdr.

John Rudd, chaplain for the Deployment Processing Center aboard the base who delivered the invocation for the ceremony. This event is designed to ‘break down the barriers’ between services and the animosity that sometimes inevitably occurs between branches, said Rudd. Many Marines know the basics of Marine Corps history, but often times it ends there. In order to broaden the minds of those who attended, a historical pageant was presented as part of the ceremony. Marines dressed in authentic attire from the periods they represented, which illustrated the evolution of the uniforms and weaponry used in the battles of past wars.

“It’s fun to see all my friends in uniform, especially ones I’ve never seen before,” said Pfc. Phillip Bacon, a Marine stationed aboard Camp Johnson. “It’s an honor to be in this ceremony. The uniforms may look different on the outside, but on the inside, there’s still a Marine.” Bacon was dressed in a uniform worn by Union soldiers during the Civil War. “On occasion I’ve been the oldest Marine at the ceremony and it is a great honor and a great joy,” said Sgt. Maj. Ernest K. Hoopii, sergeant major of Marine Corps Installations East - MCB Camp

Six men hoisted the American flag over Iwo Jima during World War II, but contrary to popular belief, not all were Marines. John Bradley, a Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class, was one of the heroic men that day, and his name and valiant actions live on at the Navy Field Medical Training Battalion aboard Camp Johnson. More than 1,500 Navy personnel receive training through FMTB each year, made possible by dedicated instructors striving for their students’ excellence. Upon completion of their basic school, hospitalmen travel to FMTB for a grueling eight-week course. To get their students prepared for deployments, the instructors with FMTB issue hospitalmen five written tests, a practical application with casualty assessment and a slew of hikes ranging from two to eight miles. “We turn blue-side hospitalmen into green-side corpsmen,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Daniel Lowderman, a medical advisor with FMTB. “We prepare them for the Marine Corps and combat medicine.” Approximately 300 students pass through each class, and with a 10 percent attrition rate, the best part of the job is seeing students who begin the course poorly but are able to hold their heads high during graduation, said Lowderman. After having two students from his first class come back with combat action ribbons on top of their deployment ribbons, Lowderman said he was very surprised because they left practically brand new. “I’ve done six deployments, two being combat deployments, and I had nothing but phenomenal corpsmen,” said Staff Sgt. Joseph Medina, a military advisor for FMTB. “I came here so I can still mold and develop young minds before they are sent to active combat zones.” The school is very teamwork and leadership oriented. If an individual in a billeted position is not performing to required standards, instructors may replace them with a junior sailor in order to encourage advancement. “We like to emphasize and stress the importance of working together,” said Medina. “If we go on a run and the students stay in a group on their own, I am impressed by the fact they chose to do it by themselves instead of me yelling at them to.” The training battalion has a lab with simulated, fully-functional casualties that spew fake blood, allow training with air tubes and even have mock injuries in order to prepare the students. All corpsmen are combat ready after graduation from FMTB but

Marines liven up annual training COURTESY STORY

2nd Marine Logistics Group

Safety is always a priority when it comes to America’s expeditionary force in readiness. Every few months, Marines undergo a safety stand-down, which is a series of classes about injury prevention, sexual assault, drug abuse and other concerns service members may face. The command staff of Headquarters Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group decided to do away with the usual classroom setting and took their training to the cold, hard ground here Nov. 5 and 6. “My intentions were to introduce something different and fun, somewhat challenging and something to leave a lasting impression on all who attended,” said 1st Sgt. Brenda R. Chrismer, the company first sergeant who helped coordinate the event. “In my experience, we learn from the things we can relate to and can have conversations about.” The instructors set up stations where teams of Marines and sailors took on physical challenges before the classes. “We broke it down into five stations and incorporated a little bit of (physical training) to keep people awake,” said Cpl. Benjamin D. Sutton, a financial management resource analyst with CLR–27, who taught classes about sexual harassment and assault.

Physical training incorporated teambased competitions including the “dizzy izzy,” which is where participates spin in circles with their heads on a baseball bat before attempting to jog to the other end of the course, a pull-up challenge and a three-legged race. After 20 minutes of exercising, the instructors guided the service members through discussions on issues such as suicide prevention, tobacco use, driver safety, and alcohol and drug abuse. “There are a lot of topics we want to address,” said Capt. James S. Mackin, the commanding officer of Headquarters Co. “The big one right now is sexual assault.” Headquarters Co. added another twist. Instead of officers and senior enlisted personnel teaching the classes, noncommissioned officers led the discussions and honed their leadership skills. The command looks to Marines of all ranks to make sound decisions, and this training helps them prepare. “It’s bettering me as a person,” Sutton said. “I’m teaching privates, [privates first class], lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, staff sergeants, gunnery sergeants and master sergeants. It’s making me a better leader.” Participants agreed the new approach was an improvement over lecture-style teaching. “This is much better,” said Pfc. Gawa G. Sunangsihle. “When I look at PowerPoints, I just fall asleep.” He noted the

The Marines and sailors opened up more when they were in smaller groups, added Sunangsihle, and they were less

nervous about voicing their opinions. The new training process will also lead to more NCO involvement and trust between junior Marines and their seniors around the company, said Chrismer.

Supply sailors take to seas LANCE CPL. PAUL PETERSON 2nd Marine Logistics Group

It was their first chance to put their sea legs to use and take part in their own naval heritage within the confines of a ship. Sailors with Medical Logistics Company, 2nd Supply Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group broke away from their day-today operations here and joined the crew of USS Mahan to learn how to perform supply operations aboard a naval vessel. It was their first chance to put their sea legs to use and take part in their own naval heritage within the confines of a ship. Seamen Geraldo M. Guzman and Thomas W. Brooks, logistics specialists with the company, volunteered with the second group to undertake the challenge recently. “The ship is sort of our

domain,” said Brooks. “It is where our knowledge base should come from, but we’re in a different assignment here.” The two sailors reported to Camp Lejeune straight out of training, and Mahan was their first opportunity to feel the waves beneath a Navy ship. It was also their first chance to work directly with the Navy’s supply system. “Working with the Marines, there is a completely different system in process,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Lewis A. Wilson, the destroyer’s command master chief. “They got to see how we receive (materials) while we are in port. They also got to experience us refueling while we were out at sea.” Mahan’s crew taught the MLG sailors how to use the Relational Supply, or RSupply, system, which allows

Navy logistics specialists to order, receive and manage resources and financial records. They also experienced the challenges faced by ship personnel as they helped distribute supplies from the shore into the belly of the destroyer. “Even moving supplies up and down the ladder wells was a lot more labor intensive,” noted Guzman. “On a ship, you have tight spaces where you have to have bodies, basically in a line, moving boxes from one place to another.” Guzman also said the working hours aboard a ship were difficult. They woke as early as 5 a.m. and sometimes pushed through until 9 p.m. Even though it was their first time aboard the ship, the two MLG sailors proved to be an asset to the destroyer’s crew. “I wish we had them longer,”

said Senior Chief Petty Officer Stephen Wilson, the leading chief petty officer for the supply department aboard Mahan. “I think they were excited, very motivated and thirsty to learn. They jumped into it like they were crewmembers for a while.” He felt two weeks was a short period of time to impart all the information the sailors needed, but the experience was something they deserved to have. “Putting their hands on the system, actually dealing with customers and having to research some things helps them retain much more,” said Senior Chief Wilson. “I think it is a very good service and a justice we did by getting the sailors out here.” In addition to learning the supply system, the sailors got a taste of life on a ship too. They

ate, slept and worked in the same place every day. Their particular living area was designed to hold more than 75 people, who all shared the same facilities for hygiene and daily activities, noted Master Chief Wilson. “There is no space,” said Brooks. “If you are lying in your rack, the distance between your thumb and pinky is how far you have before you bump your head. The two servicemembers returned to Camp Lejeune as Mahan prepared to weather Hurricane Sandy. “I have a greater respect for all those guys on the ship,” added Guzman. “It definitely lived up to my expectations as far as being on a ship and traveling.” Two more sailors from the company are scheduled to join the crew for another round of training at the end of November.

When Hurricane Sandy struck areas of New Jersey and New York 87 Marines from 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group quickly mobilized and arrived in New York to help the community. The Marines each volunteered to be a part of the relief effort. Some wanted to help those in need, some wanted to be involved with the first Marine response team after the hurricane, and some volunteered to go because they are native to the area. Sgt. Alan Goldenshteyn, a water support technician with 8th ESB, 2nd MLG

and a New York native, took the opportunity to help in the humanitarian operation as soon as he heard about it. Goldenshteyn grew up in the Bronx, N.Y., and now has family living in Brooklyn, which makes him very familiar with the New York area, a large portion of which was hit during the storm. “(When the storm hit), I was mostly worried about my family because of the power outages,” he said. “We also couldn’t contact them right away, which made matters worse.” Goldenshteyn’s family, like many other families in the area, was hit by the storm. Luckily, they weren’t hit as hard as some areas on the coastline, but they experi-

enced some flooding and loss of power for approximately a week. When Marines were volunteering to come to New York and help, Goldenshteyn signed up as soon as possible. “As soon as I heard they were sending Marines up here I volunteered right away,” he said. “I wanted to help, especially since it’s my city and there’s something special about being able to help your own city.” Although he didn’t visit his city in the best of circumstances, Goldenshteyn is still thankful for the opportunity. “This is never the way you want to come home, especially with parts of it in ruins, but being able to make an impact

and seeing them excited to receive our help makes our work worth it,” he said about the reception the Marines received from the residents of New York. “Seeing their reactions and how they interacted with us on a day-to-day basis, we could tell they were happy to have us here and appreciated the help we provided.” Goldenshteyn said seeing things like the residents putting up Marine Corps flags made it worth it to him. The support of the local community was something he really enjoyed while working in New York. “I’m just glad I got this opportunity to help out my local area, make a difference, and interact with a lot of the locals here again,” he said.

SCHOOL FROM 1C may also receive additional extensive training before deploying. “They will get sent to the Los Angeles trauma centers for live tissue training,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Rachel Kerner. “There are burn victims and individuals with gunshot wounds; it’s the closest we can get to combat related injuries while in the U.S.” The FMTB School for hospitalmen learning to be transformed into corpsmen is always full of students, but it’s the instructors who make it all possible for combat-ready individuals to reach deployable units.

Tipsters looking to notify the Naval Criminal Investigative Service about crimes and suspicious activities can use the NCIS Tip Hotline by sending a text beginning with the word NCIS followed by a tip to CRIMES, 274637, going to the “Report a Crime” tab on ncis.navy.mil. Tips can be submitted about narcotics, theft, sexual assault, domestic violence and gang activity, along with any other criminal activity or anticipated criminal action relating to naval services.

Help NCIS by sending texts to Tip Hotline LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

embers of the military community can now help the Naval Criminal Investigative Service solve crimes using their NCIS Tip Hotline. By sending a text beginning with the word NCIS followed by a tip to CRIMES, 274637, going to the “Report a Crime” tab on ncis.navy.mil, or by using the free “Tip Submit Mobile” iPhone or Android app members of the community can communicate with NCIS agents and share information about narcotics, theft, sexual assault, domestic violence, gang activity, along with any other criminal activity or anticipated criminal action relating to naval services. “It’s 100 percent anonymous,” said Heather Bain, the assistant special agent in charge of NCIS Field Office Carolinas. “(When a person sends a tip) it goes through several different servers and encrypts it. Even if I wanted to go back and find out who sent it I can’t.” When a tipster begins correspondence with NCIS they receive an alias.

Tips leading to an arrest, recovery of stolen property, seizure of narcotics or the recovery of an illegal weapon can receive up to $1,000. “The more specific the information they give us regarding the allegation, the better it’s going to be for us to substantiate it,” said Bain. “Names and commands are helpful. (Tipsters should provide) as much detail as they feel comfortable giving without giving away their identity. We’re not going to try to find out who they are. We just want to substantiate the allegation.” Tips can be provided for situations relating to naval facilities worldwide. Through the tip line tipsters do not communicate with local NCIS agents. Bain said tips are not limited to conventional criminal activities. She highly encourages sending tips related to insider threats, espionage, terrorist activities or suspicions of such activities. “Even if you just have a gut feeling, send it to us,” said Bain. “As law enforcement officers we are trying to make as many resources available to the public to report any suspicious activities or crimes they may be aware of anonymously to thwart and mitigate the threat.”

TRADITION FROM 1C Lejeune, who took part in the cake cutting during the ceremony. “For someone likely just out of training, and to be the youngest Marine in the unit or command, taking part in the ceremony must be amazing.” “We don’t pick on any part of our service, we’re all Marines,” said Hoopii. “We developed ourselves a long time ago to come together and fight as a team, and the ceremony is a way to honor the teamwork.” For 237 years Marines carried on the traditions and values that make up the Marine Corps, and with another year passing, the Marines, sailors and coast guardsmen in attendance at the Joint Daytime Ceremony carry on the honor of fighting side by side in battle once again.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.

‘Here Comes the Boom’ of new Bond film, ‘Skyfall’ Now playing at Camp Lejeune “HERE COMES THE BOOM” (PG) “Here Comes the Boom” is a sports comedy about a teacher who comes to the aid of a cash-strapped school. Kevin James (“Zookeeper,” “The Dilemma,” “Grown Ups,” TV’s “The King of Queens”) stars as Scott Voss, a former collegiate wrestler who is now a 42-year-old apathetic, burnt-out biology teacher in a failing public high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher, Marty Streb, played by Henry Winkler (“Click”), Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy, most of all the beautiful school nurse, Bella Flores, portrayed by Salma Hayek (“Savages,” “Ask the Dust”), who Scott is also trying to impress. However, in his quest to raise money to save his high school’s extracurricular program, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation who rallies the entire school. No one will fight for his students like Scott Voss. Co-starring are Greg Germann (“Fly Away”) as Principal Becher, Gary Valentine (“Jack and Jill”) as Eric Voss, and Joe Rogan as himself.

Frank Coraci (“Zookeeper,” “Click,” “The Waterboy,” “The Wedding Singer”) directed this action comedy. Kevin James, besides his starring role, also co-wrote the screenplay and acted as co-producer, making sure the sport is accurately represented by displaying real UFC fighters. “Here Comes the Boom” is a star vehicle for showcasing the comics of Kevin James but is otherwise very predictable. Now playing at Jacksonville “SKYFALL” (PG-13) “Skyfall” is the twentythird adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. This film is bringing back slick new thrills, great gadgets, exotic locations, a devilish villain and a new bond girl. Daniel Craig (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “Cowboys & Aliens,” “Defiance”) is back as James Bond 007, the character created by Ian Fleming. In this tale, Bond’s loyalty to M, the head of MI6 and Bond’s commanding officer, again portrayed by Judy Dench (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “J. Edgar Hoover”), is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. Javier Bardem (“No

Ralph Fiennes (“The Reader”) plays Gareth Mallory, a former lieutenant colonel in the British Army and now the Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. Albert Finney (“The Bourne Legacy”) can be seen as Kincade, the gamekeeper of Bond’s former estate, and Ben Whishaw (“Cloud Atlas”) plays the nerdy Q, the new quartermaster. The film is also introducing the alluring French actress Berenice

Oscar winning director Sam Mendes (“Jarhead,” “Road to Perdition,” “American Beauty”) took the helm for this polished new adventure of the popular spy series. The film was shot on locations around the world. Thomas Newman composed the soundtrack, with British singer and song-writer Adele performing the theme song ‘Skyfall.’ “Skyfall” is an exciting action thriller,

re-energizing the Bond franchise with a triumphant return of the classic spy 007. Even so, it shows a little darker Bond than usual. This is entertainment at its best. Note: This year is the 50th anniversary of the James Bond series, which began in 1962 with Dr. No. Ms. Huneycutt is the public affairs assistant at the Base Public Affairs Office.

Christmas tradition reveals Santa’s secret AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

You’re being watched. Hiding on top of the refrigerator, behind the couch or even on the bathroom sink, the Elf on the Shelf is everywhere, and he’s making his findings known to the big man in red. While Santa updated his “Naughty or Nice” lists, service members and their families took the opportunity to meet Carol Aebersold, co-author of “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition,” during a book signing at the Marine Corps Main Exchange aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Nov. 9. Revealing the story of how Santa really knows who’s good and bad with the help of the nosy elf was a family decision. “I loved the story as a kid and my children did as well,” Aebersold said. “They suggested we share it with the world so we did.” She couldn’t hide her enthusiasm to meet and greet members

of America’s finest fighting force. “It’s a small thing, but at least I’m doing what I can to show my appreciation to them,” noted Aebersold. “I’m so grateful for the sacrifices the whole family makes.” She comes from a long line of service members, including family who fought in World War I, World War II and Vietnam, and her respect for the brave men and women in uniform makes coming to military institutions an easy decision. “The military holds a special place in her heart,” affirmed Ashley McEntire, Aebersold’s personal assistant. “She’s more excited about military signings than almost anything else. She’d stay here all day and sign if she could.” According to the Elf on the Shelf tale, Old Saint Nick has his hands full during the months before Christmas so each year he assigns his elves to be his eyes and ears to find out who’s good and who isn’t.

The elves are sent to adoption centers where they’re picked up by their new families. Once their stories are read and they are given a special name, the elf receives his or her Christmas magic. “The magic allows them to fly back to the North Pole every night to report back to Santa what they observed throughout the day. Upon returning home, the elves find new spots around the house to watch and listen. Their ever-changing locations are as much a tradition as the story itself as children attempt to find their holiday spies. “We had someone tell us they found their elf in a box of cereal,” Aebersold recalled. “He was saved with a pair of salad tongs.” Elves cannot be touched by children or else they’ll lose their magic, she explained. The author happily signed copies of the book while the prying eyes of the elf looked on. Madison DeVoy stood shyly by her mother who admitted to

never having the elf in her home before. “The kids always ask for it, and I figured today would be a good day to start,” she said. While the story targets children in an effort toward positive reinforcement, adults jumped in on the fun as well. Darly Witt, training, education and outreach specialist with the Exceptional Family Member Program, had his hands full of signed merchandise as he got a head start on his Christmas shopping. “These are for my nephews,” he promised. “They have an Elf on the Shelf in their homes as a tradition, and now they’ll be able to carry it on with their own families.” Popularity for the beloved Christmas tradition grows each year, and no one is more surprised than Aebersold. “The Elf on the Shelf ” reached new heights this year as an 85-foot balloon replica made its way down the streets of New York City during the

Middle school students join Junior National Honor Society steadily to make sure the inaugural ceremony was memorable. Parents and family members were ready with their cameras as the inductees filed in, took their seats and listened to the evening guest speaker, Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, commanding general for Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune. “Education is a big part of the quality of life of this base,” he proclaimed to the group. “It takes a community to raise a child. Today is a great day for the new members, the school and the base. Thank you everyone for making this a reality.” To be eligible for the honor, students were nominated by members of the BMS faculty and staff. Each student must have and maintain a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average, but they are also evaluated on the basis of service, leadership, character

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune fosters legacies of excellence, and they don’t waste any time. More than 30 students from Brewster Middle School were inducted into the Junior National Honor Society during a ceremony at the school recently. The occasion marks the first induction of the newlyformed chapter, and the faculty and staff couldn’t be more excited. “(We wanted) to bring more attention to academics and character development,” said Principal Emilio Garza. “(Students) know they have to have a high grade point average to stay in. They have to work for it.” With the launch of the school’s new sports program this year, Garza felt the addition of the NJHS was a good compliment, and he and staff worked

and citizenship. “This goes above and beyond academics,” Gorry stated. “It’s about the whole person.” Students stood united and repeated the NJHS oath before receiving their official pins and signing the first official roster. “It’s no accident you are here,” said Michele Miller, co-sponsor for NJHS. “You were chosen. Wear it with honor.” Gunnery Sgt. Mike Lawson, 8th Engineer Support Battalion, looked on as his son received the honor. “I’m very proud,” he beamed. “I tried to help him to realize this is important. It does my heart good to see this.” The new members will serve as role models for the rest of the year both academically and socially. “We want to focus on Photo by Amy Binkley mastering the standards,” Garza pointed out. “If they Brig.

PARADE FROM 1D opportunity for us to see each other in a less formal atmosphere.” Col. Mitchell E. Cassell, commanding officer of Marine Corps Air Station New River, couldn’t remember the last time he participated in a parade and looked forward to experiencing his first one since his recent arrival to Onslow County.

“Jacksonville is full of nice people,” he stated. “One of the reasons I like to interact with the community is because (at the air station), we make a lot of noise. By being out here, I can explain why. I just want to be a good neighbor and to return the goodwill shown to us.” Santa’s arrival wrapped up the popular event much

to the joy of the younger members of the crowd, and as the sidewalks cleared, the camaraderie between the neighboring communities grew stronger than ever before. For more pictures from the parade visit www.camplejeuneglobe.com.

Ghosts make contact at USO LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center is a place where service members and the local community can have fun and relax, but in its shadows lie mysterious forces that open and close doors when nobody is around, touch and scratch guests and employees, and leave people with an eerie feeling. A local radio station along with the South East Paranormal Investigation Association brought Bruce Tango, a frequent guest investigator with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghost Hunters,â&#x20AC;? a SyFy network TV show and the father of one of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghost Huntersâ&#x20AC;? main investigators Dave Tango, to host an event where professional and amateur investigators could look into allegations of paranormal activity in the facility. Tickets for the event sold out quickly and all proceeds went to the USO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to run into,â&#x20AC;? said Tango. He investigated the paranormal for years. The former police officer heard disembodied voices and is known to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ghost magnet.â&#x20AC;? Using the tools of the trade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cameras, audio recorders, eye glasses with cameras embedded, a ghost box using radio transmissions to communicate with paranormal creatures and a puck, a device that speaks words based on environmental readings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ghost hunters explored the rooms, halls and catacombs of the USO hoping to connect with spirits from beyond. SEPIA visited the USO before to investigate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistent activity here,â&#x20AC;? said Jessica Dionne, the founder of SEPIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Last time) we heard sounds, went to where it came from and then heard it from the room we just left. It was like a game of cat and mouse.â&#x20AC;? There were also reports of phantom music. The investigators heard distant sounds unheard in other areas. In a corner of the catacombs of the USO, on the dirt floor lays a pile of old, broken pencils. In SEPIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous investigation an old folding chair with a dip in its seat

faced the corner. They decided to lay a new pencil in the dip. Soon after, the pencil was found on the ground. Nobody had entered the room, and the underground area didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any drafts to move it. On the Wednesday night the amateurs and experts met with different, more unpredictable occurrences than a few stray sounds and small moving objects. While members of her group tried to communicate with spirits, April Betts asked not to be touched. Betts was a skeptic, there to celebrate her sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt something, a cold breeze across my hand, then it felt like somebody put icyhot across my entire back. When we left the room, my back itched so I asked my sister to look at it. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been scratched.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel it when it happened. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel anything scratch me.â&#x20AC;? Betts had her back to a refrigerator and was surrounded by several people when it happened. Another woman was standing in the same spot and began to feel very uncomfortable moments before, Betts, who was not scared, moved there. She had two scratches across her side and one across her back. Hours later the scratches where still raised and bright red. Not too long afterward other guests, two young girls, reported scratches while in the same room. This time it was on their necks. In the USOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auditorium the puck said a constant stream of words. Its robotic voice spoke of an abyss, the storm, floods and water hinting at a troubled spirit who met an aquatic demise. Although the unknown can be scary, Dionne feels todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment, brought on partly by TV shows, educates people about the paranormal and helps them lose some of the fear. Tango said malicious spirits are a rarity. SEPIA has hours of sound recording and video to dig through before they can present any evidence on a haunting at the USO. However for the staff members and guests who walk through its halls, any pictures or recording will only confirm what they already suspect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested to see how this turns out,â&#x20AC;? said Deb Fisher the director of the Jacksonville USO.

A member of heavy metal band All That Remains signs a cover for a military fan while visiting service members aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. The band released an album that sold more than 25,000 copies in its first week.

Metal band visits Lejeune LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Heavy metal band All That Remains stopped by Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to spend time with the base’s military metal fans recently. Having just produced a new single “Stand Up” and a new album that sold more than 25,000 copies in its first week, the band’s music serves as a fitting anthem to Marines about hard work and the downfalls of romance. The themes are doled out with heavy guitar riffs and vocals alternating between melodic and intense. “This is what I work out to everyday,” said Cpl. Eric Mascio, an anti-tank missile man with 2nd Tank Battalion. “On deployments, we listen to it all the time. It’s the same music as our mentality. The military is a big fan base for metal bands.” However, the band was not here to sell albums. Ralph Lewter, the retail

advertising supervisor with Marine Corps Community Service’s Advertising and Branding, said the event was for the community, the families and service members of the base. Cpl. Nicholas Koffarnus, a tank mechanic with 2nd Tank Bn., was a fan of All That Remains since his youth. He met the band four years ago and when he saw they were coming to the area he knew he had to be there. Koffarnus held the first spot in the line, and when the band entered he was the first to shake their hands, share a few words and get a poster signed. Moments like this are important to service members. Since Bob Hope began visiting troops in World War II, it’s been said nothing lifts morale quite as well as meeting an icon. “It’s cool to be able to do something like this and give back to the Marines,” said Phil Labonte, lead vocalist of All That Remains. Labonte knows a thing

or two about the military experience. At one point he stepped on the yellow footprints and briefly experienced the Marine Corps for himself. Labonte was medically separated while training to be a mortar man at School of Infantry - East aboard Camp Geiger. “I don’t rate,” Labonte said with a laugh, referring to using the title of Marine. “There are Marines out there who have done some real things. My wife is a Marine. She has deployed to Iraq twice and Afghanistan once. She’s done all the real stuff. I don’t count.” Had things been different, the Marines at the MCX may be seeing Sgt. Maj. Labonte rather than a rock star. Most of the fans present were entirely unaware of Labonte’s experience in the service. “It’s awesome he’s a former Marine,” said Melissa Patterson, who waited in line with her teenage daughter to meet the band. “As the saying goes, ‘Once a Marine,

always a Marine.’ He’s keeping it real and bringing it back to the men and women he served with. He hasn’t gotten too big for his Marines.” The meet and greet took place during lunch hours, affording many Marines the opportunity to wait in line during their break to have their guitar, poster or uniform cap signed. “It brings a light to our day,” said Koffarnus. “We can take a break from work and meet cool people.” The band was also grateful for the experience and appreciative of the service members. “The military is voluntary,” said Labonte. “It makes the commitment more valuable. We were at war for the past 10 years. People don’t join just for college anymore. (Service members) definitely have my support.”

“Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this son of York; And all the clouds that low’r’d upon our house, in the deep bosom of the ocean buried.” So goes the famous line from Shakespeare’s work, Richard the Third. Many have used this line to express their discontent towards a host of issues in their lives, but the fact is many are using this line incorrectly. Richard, the future king of England, was not displaying discontentment, but rather highlighting the good fortunes of the house of York over Henry IV and the Lancastrian house. His brother Edward IV would be crowned king. In other words, the winter is now made glorious summer. However, Richard’s joy is short-lived as he discovers his brother’s decadent ways on the throne. Furthermore, he broods over his own physical deformity and obsesses over ambitions for the throne. It leads to Richard attempting to bring about his own summer through manipulation, treachery and murder. To be content means to be satisfied with what one is or has, not wanting more. This absolutely does not mean we give up on improving ourselves and pushing the envelope in our development. Strive for improvement, but remember it’s important to be satisfied with the blessings and gifts already granted; not being constantly one moment away from griping about what you don’t have. A tradition many families observe during the holiday season is to share with one another reasons for being thankful. All of us should demonstrate our gratitude by being content, not constantly looking for bigger and better deals or getting caught in the vicious grass-is-greener cycle, but truly expressing our thanks through contentment. Whether you and your family are in a state of plenty or want, genuine contentment should be a steady stream. It doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a habit of the heart that has to be learned and cultivated. Here’s to four seasons of contentment.
