arines and sailors assigned to the Black Sea Rotational Force 13 participated in a live-fire range with soldiers of the Georgian army during exercise Agile Spirit 13 at Vaziani Air Base in the Republic of Georgia, March 19. Marines from Black Sea Rotational Force 13 taught Georgian soldiers the characteristics of Marine Corps infantry weapons systems before giving them a chance to fire them. The Georgian soldiers practiced with service rifles, light and heavy machine guns, grenade launchers, mortars, and rockets “Very rarely do we have the opportunity to use a range this big,” said 2nd Lt. Philip Hanf platoon commander with Easy Company, Black Sea Rotational Force 13. “In the coming days,

we’ll learn how they operate on the squad and platoon scale.” The service members engaged targets as far as two kilometers on the range, becoming accustomed to firing the weapons in basic courses of fire. This acclimatization will help serve both services in the future in joint operations, as their knowledge of each other’s weapons systems and tactics allows them greater flexibility and comfort. “We’re doing this range as part of Agile Spirit, with the bilateral training. We get some hands on with their weapons and they get some hands on with ours,” said Capt. Thaddeus Haltom, commander of Easy Company. We learn how they do things, and we get to build camaraderie while we do it, said Haltom. “The training events here, and using the live ammunition, are really beneficial for the Marines and the Georgians,” said Sgt. Douglas.

Fallen brothers from first battle remembered CPL. JEFF DREW

2nd Marine Division

As the country reflects on the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the ground war in Iraq, one battle stands alone. It’s the battle that drew first blood against the untested Marines and sailors of 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines. It’s the battle where 18 Marines gave everything for their country and for the Corps. It set the stage for a war not only against uniformed soldiers, but against militant insurgents concealed within an innocent populace – the battle for An Nasiriyah. Capt. Matthew Martin, then the Company A executive officer of 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, speaks with a solemn tone, painting a lucid image of controlled chaos, and Marines, many fighting for the first time side-by-side, 10 years ago. “That was the first time I had been in combat,” said Martin. “My initial reaction, well, have you ever heard of flight or fight? It was fight. When we were fighting, there were no other thoughts but to protect the Marine to our

left and our right, keep it tight and repel the enemy, and that’s exactly what we did.” The days prior to the battle on March 23, 2003, the Marines of 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, assembled anxiously at the border, waiting for the President to give the word to go. “When we were in Kuwait,

staged south of the line of departure you could see a lot of Marines were thinking about what lay ahead of them,” said Lt. Col. David Sosa, the current battalion commander. “Once we crossed the line it was a very busy time for the Marines and sailors and I think they were very focused on the job at hand,” he said as he

reminisced of his time as the battalion’s operations officer. Their two-day journey from the border left little time for sleep, yet the beleaguered battalion moved quickly toward their objective on orders to secure and protect the bridges surrounding the city. Marines are always able to adjust fire and adapt to developing situations, but in war, rarely does anything go as planned. “They say ‘don’t fall in love with your plan,’ and we definitely didn’t,” said Martin, then a 1st lieutenant. “That’s when the plan started changing.” Reports started rolling in that an Army unit, the 507th Maintenance Company, to include Pfc. Jessica Lynch, had taken a wrong turn in the city and been ambushed. Several soldiers had been killed and captured and were under heavy fire. Alpha Company and other lead elements of the battalion rushed toward the units’ smoldering vehicles in an effort to rescue the remaining soldiers. Once the soldiers were recovered, the battalion continued toward their objective. SEE FALLEN 11A

Marines and sailors with 2nd Marine Division, conducted a command post training exercise March 18-20, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The command post training exercise is follow-on to Bold Alligator, where Marines simulated commanding division units in a combat scenario involving the restoration of sovereignty of an occupied fictional nation. “The commanding general has two priorities, the first (is where to supply) forces in a foreign country. The number two priority is the command and control of the division,” said Master Gunnery Sgt. Andrew Hampton, the operations chief for 2nd Marine Division. “This scenario was built in order to exercise the commanding general’s command and control functions, and as a part of this exercise we have response cells that simulate all the division units.” The command post training exercise headquarters was where all command staff and subordinate commands were located, and when they were given a scenario they had to react accordingly to complete the mission. “Our goal is to be prepared, so if we get the call to go forward to an expeditionary environment we can pick up and move. Everything we are using here is what we would be using deployed and can be run off of generators. We are mobile and still capable of completing a task,” said Hampton. “We would pack all this up in a (shipping container), deploy and as quickly and proficiently as possible set everything up so we can start completing the missions from the commanding general.” Even though this was primarily a chance for the command staff to practice what it would be like to deploy, the junior Marines used it as a learning experience as well. Division Marines of all job fields trained for months getting familiar with common weapon systems. “Our job out here is to be the SEE TRAINING 11A

SemperSafe Semper Safe

By Derrick J. Mangas

Riders, drivers: Don’t let your guard down As the weather improves with arrival of spring, more and more motorcyclists are hitting the roads. Drivers must be extra attentive. Make sure you “Share the Road.” Motorcycle riders are reminded to follow the rules of the road and wear personal protective equipment. All vehicle operators are reminded to never drive or ride while distracted. By increasing safe riding behavior and cooperating with all motorists and motorcyclists, we can reduce the number of fatalities and injuries on and off base. Apply the following rules of the road: Expect to see motorcycles at any time, and search aggressively for them. Don’t be fooled by a flashing turn signal on a motorcycle. Some motorcycle signals may not be self-canceling and riders sometimes forget to turn them off. Wait and ensure the motorcycle is going to turn before you proceed. A motorcycle has the same rights and privileges as any other vehicle on the roadway. Allow the motorcyclist a full lane width. Although it may seem there is enough room in the traffic lane for an automobile to pass a motorcycle, remember the motorcycle needs the room to maneuver safely. Motorcycles are small and may be difficult to see. A motorcycle has a much smaller profile than a vehicle, which can make it more difficult to judge the speed and distance of an approaching motorcycle. We must watch for them. Always signal your intentions before changing lanes or merging with traffic. This allows the motorcyclist to anticipate traffic flow and find a safe lane position. A motorcyclist can be hidden in a vehicle’s blind spot or missed in a quick look due to its smaller size. Always make a visual check for motorcycles by checking mirrors and blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Although road conditions can be minor annoyances to motorists, they can pose major hazards to motorcyclists. Motorcycle riders may change speed or adjust position within a lane suddenly in reaction to road and

traffic conditions such as potholes, gravel, wet or slippery surfaces, pavement seams, railroad crossings, and grooved pavement. When a motorcycle is in motion, don’t think of it as a motorcycle, think of it as a full size automobile. In accordance with Marine Corps Order 5100.19F, Operators of government or privately owned motorcycles, motor scooters, or All Terrain Vehicles must successfully complete a rider or operator course prior to operation on any Department of Defense installation. The training must also be completed by all active-duty military operating motorcycles whether on or off base. The safety course must include the MSF or Specialty Vehicle Institute of America approved curriculum taught by MSF or SVIA certified or licensed instructors. The locations for the training are Camp Lejeune, New River Air Station, and Camp Johnson. One of the benefits about this required training is that it’s all free to active duty members. All Terrain Vehicles, Utility Terrain Vehicle, and dirt bike training is also available free to DoD civilians who operate these vehicles in the performance of the duties. You can register for any of our motorcycle training, contact your unit safety officer or go to If you have any questions or need assistance enrolling in a motorcycle class, you may also stop by Building 58 Room 132. Per Marine Corps Order 5100.19F, Marine Administrative Message 364/09, and Message 071442Z May 09, the following minimum personal protective equipment is mandatory for all Marines and military members assigned to Marine Corps command while riding a motorcycle (operator or passenger) on or off base and all civilians riding a motorcycle on base: • Snell/DOT-approved helmet • Eye protection is goggles or full face helmets that are American National Safety Institute approved and shatter resistant • Long-sleeved shirt or jacket • Long trousers • Full-fingered riding gloves • Sturdy, above the foot ankle shoe

or boot that provides support and traction while riding Temporary one day motorcycle base passes are available at the visitor center. In order to acquire one, a person would need proof of enrollment in the basic rider’s course, a motorcycle endorsement on their driver’s license or a motorcycle permit, along with valid insurance and registration documentation. Upcoming events: April 5 at 10 a.m., a ride will take place around the city of Jacksonville to raise awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse and reinforce responsible use of alcohol can be part of many enjoyable, safe experiences if used in moderation. All unit motorcycle mentorship programs are encouraged to participate. May 3, the 4th Annual Joint Marine Corps and North Carolina Department of Transportation Motorcycle Safety Month event The Heroes’ Ride for Motorcycle Safety kicks off. The ride is a commanding general MCIEAST-MCB Camp Lejeune sponsored event coordinated with North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program, Ft Bragg Safety Department, Seymour Johnson AFB and local law enforcement. The ride will consist of approximately 1000 motorcycle riders from Camp Lejeune, MCAS New River, MCAS Cherry Point, Ft Bragg, and Seymour Johnson. The riders will stage at the Main Exchange aboard Camp Lejeune at 8:30 a.m. and depart to Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue Bogue Field at 9:15 a.m., escorted by local law enforcement. At Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue Bogue Field there will be a Motorcycle Safety Fair which will include displays of personal protective equipment, guest speakers, food vendors, and the rock band 16 Second Stare. Anyone authorized to ride a motorcycle aboard DoD Installations may participate in the group ride. Active duty, civilian employees, retirees, and dependents are invited to Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue Bogue Field for the event.

Discussing family medical history, early screenings can save your life CARYN SCHROEDER

Health Net Federal Services

As part of its month-long colorectal cancer awareness campaign, staff at Health Net Federal Services, the managed care support contract for the Tricare North Region, spoke with an Air Force officer about his recent colon cancer diagnosis. For Air Force Col. Wayne R. Monteith, deputy director of the Department of Defense executive agent for space staff and assistant deputy under secretary of the Air Force at the Pentagon, Washington D.C., work came first. He was responsible for more than 5,000 people and worldwide operations, including flying the global positioning satellite: Constellation. Monteith considered it his priority above routine health care. In December 2010, at the insistence of his secretary who rescheduled the appointment three times, Monteith had his first colonoscopy at age 51, almost a year after his doctor’s initial recommendation. One reason for the delay was what Monteith called “institutional,” but he also felt he didn’t need one. “We are raised in our careers with a warrior ethos to not complain and not get sick,” Monteith said. “For me, having rarely been sick, I construed it as a sign of weakness.” Monteith’s not alone; Health Net Federal Services’ goal is to increase the number of beneficiaries in the Tricare North Region who obtain the recommended colorectal cancer screenings to save lives. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists colorectal cancer as the second leading cause of cancerrelated deaths in the United States among cancers affecting men and women. Colorectal cancer screenings can, in many cases, prevent colon and rectal cancers by finding polyps before they turn cancerous.

Heading to his appointment, Monteith felt he was in great health. He had been a competitive runner and his physical fitness score put him in the top one percent of the Air Force. It wasn’t until the physician assistant came to speak with him after his colonoscopy and started crying, he realized something was wrong. “My doctor informed me I had an aggressive tumor that could kill me if not removed,” said Monteith. “I’m not sure if it sunk in immediately, but I certainly knew they had to be wrong. I had no symptoms.” According to the American Cancer Society, most people diagnosed with early colorectal cancer do not experience symptoms. Symptoms such as blood in the stool, persistent stomach pain and unexplained weight loss may not appear until the disease has progressed. Because of the size of his tumor, surgery was scheduled within the week. He said even then he didn’t quite accept what they were going to do and did not even bring an overnight bag with him to the hospital. The surgery resulted in the removal of one-third of his large intestine, the adjacent lymph nodes and a fourday hospital stay. Pathology reports confirmed stage three colon cancer. About two weeks later, chemotherapy treatments started. “To be blunt, chemo sucks,” Monteith said. “If I can help one person avoid chemotherapy, then I’ve done my job.” Monteith described one side effect, cold sensitivity, especially while receiving treatments during winter in Colorado Springs, Colo., as “drinking a cupful of glass” while breathing in the cold air. The American Cancer Society indicates as many as one in five people diagnosed with colorectal cancer have a family history of the disease.

For Monteith, he didn’t learn his family history until he was already diagnosed. “While still in the hospital, my father told me he had polyps removed when he was 40,” Monteith said. “Had I been armed with information, my doctor told me I would have been instructed to be screened at least 10 years earlier. We may have avoided this entirely.” Monteith’s message about the importance of discussing family medical history is simple: “It’s vital to ask; it could save your life.” Monteith is in remission and looking forward to celebrating the fiveyear mark when he can officially declare he is cured. “That’s the big event we are looking to celebrate,” Monteith said. He describes another positive to his colorectal cancer experience, the discovery of early-stage melanoma, during a routine follow-up last year. Monteith said the finding and removal of the melanoma would not have occurred had he not been going through this. “My family describes it as, ‘Wayne: two, Cancer: zero,’” Monteith said. “I’m not looking to go 3-0, and certainly not 2-1.” To his fellow military community, Monteith offered, “Don’t roll the dice.” Monteith said it’s not about feeling lucky. He felt fortunate, not lucky the screening caught the disease. “I believe people think, ‘It won’t happen to me,’” Monteith said. “I would have said the same thing the day before my colonoscopy.” Tricare covers routine colorectal cancer screenings at no cost to Tricare beneficiaries when they see a network provider.

24th MEU says goodbye to commander SGT. MONIQUE WALLACE 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit


ol. Frank D o n o van relinquished his duties as the commanding officer of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit to Col. Scott Benedict at a change of command ceremony held at the II Marine Expeditionary Force headquarters aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 21. Donovan, who entered the Marine Corps in 1986, took command of the unit May 6, 2011, and is leaving after a nine-month deployment, where he led a 2,300-strong crisis response force throughout European, Central and Africa commands while embarked aboard the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group. During the deployment, the unit participated in major bilateral and multi-national exercises in Morocco and Jordan, adviser-team training for Ugandan forces, smallunit, rugged-terrain training in Djibouti, and combat sustainment training in Kuwait. The unit was also oncall to provide support to various American embassies throughout the Middle East and North Africa during the numerous uprisings and unrest in the region at the end of last year. “For the Marines and sailors, you know how I feel about you,” said Donovan as he addressed the formation. “I couldn’t say enough about what you’ve done. Anywhere we’ve sent you across the world, you’ve excelled, and you’ve represented the nation and the Marine Corps so very

26th MEU hones at-sea operations



The Marines and Sailors assigned to the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit rolled into an immediate shipboard training regiment when the unit deployed from Camp Lejeune aboard the USS Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group early this month. Time at sea includes a round-the-clock flight schedule for the aviation element of the MEU and quick reaction drills, fast-roping, classroom instruction and constant weapons firing maintenance for the ground troops. The MEU is a sea-based Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of launching amphibious operations, crisis-response and limited contingency operations within six hours of notification. In the coming months the 26th MEU will operate continuously, potentially across the globe, providing the president and unified combatant commanders with a forward-deployed, sea-based, quick-reaction force. Following its Atlantic transit, The 26th MEU is conducting cooperative training operations in the Republic of Georgia alongside Georgian army soldiers.

arines a n d sailors of Black Sea Rotational Force 13 and the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit are currently living at a forward operating base built and constructed by engineers with the U.S. Marine

Corps and the Republic of Georgia Army. Expanding on a basic berm already in place, engineers visited a variety of improvements on the forward operating base, including building an entry control point and vehicle control point, fortifying the bunker at the mouth of the forward operating base, and expanding and improving the hygiene facilities on the premises. “It was difficult, not

having the machinery on hand,” said 1st Lt. Nicholas King, Combat Logistics Battalion 26 engineering detachment officer in charge. Dealing with restrictions on the type equipment utilized, the engineers had to go through local interpreters and contractors to get the facility built. “Heightened security helps prevent security breaches and overlooks the entry control point,”

said Gunnery Sgt. Forrest Elge, CLB-26 engineering detachment chief. The engineers in charge of conducting the improvements arrived at the forward operating base, located outside Vaziani Air Base, a week ahead of the main body from the MEU and Black Sea Rotational Force 13. The Marines and Georgian engineers worked to improve the base, while learning how the other

worked. “They’re showing us how they do more with less; we’re trading techniques,” said Elge. “Despite the language barrier, we’ve been able to conduct a lot of training. They pick up what we teach them really quickly.” The Marines and Georgian engineers will continue to train in counter-mobility operations, obstacle planning and counter-IED opera-

tions. “The Marines have done a good job. The relationship between our engineers and the Georgian engineers has been excellent. I look forward to working with them in the future,” said King. “It’s an honor to work with the Georgian engineer,” said Elge. “They’ve got a good basic understanding, and they’re enthusiastic to train and work with us.”

26th MEU arrives in Republic of Georgia CPL. MICHAEL LOCKETT

26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Marines and sailors of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit arrived in the Republic of Georgia March 15, to take part in Agile Spirit, a cooperative exercise with the Georgian military in conjunction with the Black Sea Rotational Force 13. The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit is focused on training the Georgian military in the specifics of engineering operations, including the construction of forward operating bases, entry control points,

improvised explosive device detection and disposal, as well as engineer survivability and countermobility operations. “We’re working hand in hand with our Georgian counterparts,” said Capt. Orlando Chaparro, 26th MEU command element exercise officer in charge for Agile Spirit. “Georgia has been a long time coalition partner in the war on terror.” Georgia has been deploying units to Afghanistan since 2009, working closely with the Marine Corps during its deployments, said Chaparro. “We’re here because the Georgians are doing

deployments out to Afghanistan where they’re working with Marines,” said Gunnery Sgt. Ryan Tracy, 26th MEU motor transportation chief. Our purpose here is to teach them how the Marine Corps conducts its business, so the two militaries will be able to work more efficiently together in the future. The Marines and sailors of the MEU will be working to get the Georgians current on the engineering side of ground operations, helping them develop the skill set so they can develop their own training plans. From there, they’ll be in a position to help train the

rest of their armed forces in the specifics of forward operating base construction and improvised explosive device operations, as well as a variety of other areas, to make them more able to operate efficiently as a coalition partner in Afghanistan. “They’re coming back with a lot of ability and competency,” said Chaparro. “We’re not starting from square one, we’re building on these competencies.” ”It’s an excellent opportunity to further strengthen relations with a valued coalition partner in hopes of continuing further efforts in further exercises,” said Chaparro.

The gratitude of the American public has been one of the subtle differences between the present day conflict and the wars of years past. Marines and other service members are far more likely to receive the thanks of the public, a smile and handshake, than to be ignored or shunned, as it was in the wars and conflicts of our fathers. Some people go the extra mile to make it known. Kierra Watts, a 9th grader at Craven Early College, decided on her own initiative to put together a goods drive in her school for students to contribute necessities for the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, currently in the process of deploying aboard the warships of the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group. “I wanted to help. That’s all, really,” said Watts. Watts is the daughter of a local caterer and learned about the MEU when her mom helped host the MEU’s Marine Corps Ball in November. Watts said she simply wanted to do something to help. She cited lots of family members in the military as her reason for doing the goods drive. “A lot of my family was in the military,” she said.

During the past 11 years of armed conflict, campaigns to get necessities, like hygiene products, to the troops were more common. But as the operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the rest of the world dragged on, the frequency of such events has waned. Watts, while originally considering writing letters to troops overseas, quickly grew her idea into something larger. “I made a list of items, brainstormed how to get them. I talked to my mom, went to the counselors. They said to make fliers,” said Watts. After making fliers, she left collection boxes in the homerooms of her school. Students, while initially slow to respond to Watts’ idea, eventually turned it into a competition, to see who’s homeroom could donate the most. “I didn’t expect this to be a such a big success,” said Watts. Eventually, the drive got to the point where she had to enlist help to carry all the goods out. Not content to rest on her laurels, Watts has big plans for the future, both for her fundraising and for her education. She intends to do another fundraiser, this time on a larger scale. “This time, I might try to get the community involved,” she said.

Educational benefits, training opportunities for dependents I receive a lot of questions regarding Dependents’ Educational Assistance. For example what does it mean and am I eligible for it? Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance program provides education and training opportunities for eligible dependents of certain veterans. The following guide will help you determine if you are eligible and how to apply for the Department of Veterans Affairs Dependents’ Educational Assistance program. The program offers up to 45 months of educational benefits. These benefits may be used for certificate programs, apprenticeship, on-the-job training or to earn a degree. If you are a spouse, you may take a correspondence course. Remedial, deficiency, and refresher courses may also be approved under certain circumstances. To be eligible, you must be the son, daughter, or spouse of a veteran who has died or is permanently and totally disabled as the result of a service-connected disability. The disability must arise out of active service in the armed forces. The basic criteria for qualification are that the veteran must have died from any cause, while such service-connected disability was in existence. The service member was missing in

action or captured in line of duty by a hostile force. This includes if a service member was forcibly detained or interned in line of duty by a foreign government or power. Eligibility requirements have been expanded to cover a spouse or child of a person who: VA determines has a service-connected permanent and total disability; and at the time of VA’s determination is a member of the armed forces who is hospitalized or receiving outpatient medical care, services, or treatment; and is likely to be discharged or released from service for this service-connected disability. Persons eligible under this new provision may be eligible for Dependents’ Educational Assistance benefits effective Dec. 23, 2006, the effective date of the law. If you are a son or daughter and wish to receive benefits for attending school or job training, you must be between the ages of 18 and 26. In certain instances, it is possible to begin before age 18 and to continue after age 26. Marriage does not necessarily preclude one from this benefit. If you are in the armed forces, you may not receive this benefit while on active duty. To pursue training after military service, your discharge characterization cannot be dishonorable. The

VA can extend your period of eligibility by the number of months and days equal to the time spent on active duty. This extension cannot go beyond your 31st birthday. If you are a spouse, benefits end 10 years from the date VA finds you eligible or from the date of death of the veteran. You should make sure your selected program is approved for VA training. If you are not clear on this point, the VA will inform you and the school or company about the requirements. Obtain and complete VA Form 22-5490, Application for Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance. Send it to the VA regional office with jurisdiction over the state where you will train. If you are a son or daughter, under legal age, a parent or guardian must sign the application. If you have started training, take your application to your school or employer. Ask them to complete VA Form 22-1999, Enrollment Certification, and send both forms to VA. For additional information contact your local VA regional office for additional assistance by dialing tollfree 888-442-4551.

Corpsman seizes deployment opportunity CPL. KYLE N. RUNNELS 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit prides itself on being a quick-reaction force capable of conducting a variety of missions around the world with little to no preparation time. Seaman Mason L. Trainham, a 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit corpsman, joined the unit with the same mindset. After missing out on the Marine Expeditionary Unit’s six months of predeployment training, Trainham checked into the unit with the understanding he would be deploying on very short notice. “Within a month, it went from ‘Hey, you might be deploying.’ … to ‘Hey,

you have a week to get everything ready,’” explained Trainham. “I have always wanted to deploy. I don’t have a wife or kids right now. So, why not? There is nothing holding me back. I have never done this before, and even if I hate it, at least I can say I made a difference and did something in my life.” This is the first time he has ever stepped foot onto a Navy ship. His prior training, professionalism and aspirations to better himself in his field of work have excelled his ability to adapt to the new environment and meet the expectations placed upon him. “He has adjusted perfectly, and he quickly took care of everything he needed to in the rear,” said Chief Petty

Officer Elizabeth Davenport, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit independent duty corpsman, referring to all of the personal preparations Marines and sailors must handle before deploying. “This is exciting because he is a junior sailor. This is his first deployment ever and he was able to hit the ground running. He is excited to learn, so it is a fresh soul to train on things regarding being a corpsman and doing the things corpsman do.” According to Davenport, all she can ask for from him is to keep growing and to take what the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit medical staff teaches him and pay it forward to one of his junior sailors one day. In an ironic turn of events, Trainham discovered least I can say I made a difference and did something in my life. Seaman Mason L. Trainham

he would be deploying on the same ship as Petty Officer 2nd Class James Trainham, an aviation ordnance sailor assigned to the USS Kearsarge. James is Mason’s cousin, who he hasn’t seen for over 12 years. Mason Trainham said knowing his cousin is aboard ship makes things a lot easier for him. He said it gives him a connection to branch out and meet new people. Al-

though Mason Trainham is a sailor, his work environment usually surrounds him with Marines, so his cousin affords him the opportunity to experience a different side of military life. To Marines and sailors alike, the Marine Corps and Navy are more than just military forces, they are often considered brotherhoods. Through the hardships, bonds are made and

cannot be replicated under any other circumstance. Trainham said this aspect is an important part of his military career. He said the Marines have always looked out for him. Trainham is excited to continue in the medical field of the military. With all the different variations of medicine, there is always something new and exciting he is wanting to learn.

TRAINING FROM 1A security force for the headquarters,” said Cpl. Samuel Adkins, regularly a musician with the 2nd Marine Division Band. “We have been training the past few months with different weapon systems, so we are proficient with them and have been learning proper procedures for standing guard.” Adkins, from Savannah, Ga., has personally enjoyed the experience to be security force since it’s not the typical day for him “As Marines we are supposed to be [well-rounded], so we can complete a task given to us. This is an outstanding chance for us to do a refresher on things we haven’t done since recruit training,” said Adkins. Even though Command Post exercises aren’t regular training events, some of the Marines wish they could do it more often. “I think the training has gone really well so far,” said Cpl. Chris Schott, a section leader with the 2nd Marine Division Band. “Training is essential for any Marine and this kind of exercise is a great way to experience a little bit of everything the Marine Corps has to offer.” FALLEN FROM 1A “When we punched into the city, Alpha took the first bridge just as expected, taking fire the entire time,” Martin said. “The other companies punched in and executed their courses of action just as planned, initially.” Officers with 1/2 were instructed to be ready to accept the surrender of the Iraqi Military elements located within the city of more than 300,000 residents. That however, was not the case. Bolstered by their successful assault against the unprepared 507th, the defending Sadaam Fedayeen, Republican Guard, and Iraqi Army Regular soldiers relentlessly assaulted the Marine forces. “One of our untold tasks was to break that – break their will to fight and get them to surrender,” said Martin. And the Marines aimed to do just that. With the Euphrates Bridge being held securely by Alpha, Charlie and Bravo Companies pushed forward into the fray intending to take the northern bridge. The forward progress Bravo was making came to a near immediate halt as thick mud and higher than anticipated water levels entrapped their tracked vehicles. Split in two, Bravo defended against small arms, machine gun and rocket propelled-grenade fire while simultaneously recovering their vehicles. Charlie Company, blocked by Bravo’s stuck vehicles, adjusted course and moved through the city along a road commonly known as Ambush Alley. Charlie trekked four kilometers under heavy fire from buildings on both sides of the road to reach the Sadaam Canal Bridge. Once there, they began to engage the enemy in force. With tensions rising and inconsistent communications plaguing the battalion, Charlie came under intense accurate mortar and artillery fire. Sustaining heavy casualties, the company requested immediate air support only to be mistaken as an Iraqi mechanized unit by an A-10 Thunderbolt overhead. The friendly fire mixed with the Iraqi assault prompted the Alpha Company commander to push through Ambush Alley to support Charlie. “Everybody knew everybody, it [was] a very tight unit,” remembered Martin.

“As Charlie began taking casualties, these weren’t just Marines from another unit or another company; these were Marines that we all knew. It definitely had an effect on every one of us – no Marines like to lose their brothers.” Soon, Bravo followed, consolidating the battalion in an effort to repel the enemy attack and expedite casualty evacuations. “One of the things that absolutely impressed me was that this was their first combat – my first combat – and you could see that [the Marines] were doing just what they were trained to do,” Sosa mentioned. “It was good to see the effect of months and years of training and I was very proud of every single one of them that day. The Marines did what you would expect of them, they continued to stay focused on the mission. They got the job done.” By the end of the day, the battalion had repositioned two km north of the Sadaam Canal and established a defensive position for the night. Altogether, 18 Marines made the ultimate sacrifice in a successful effort to open up a route for I Marine Expeditionary Force to push toward Baghdad. “One of the things we want to do for the battalion is to keep the history alive and [provide] an understanding for all of our Marines and sailors of what their battalion has done throughout the years.” said Sosa. “This gives us an opportunity to highlight a significant element of the battalion’s history in the war we are still fighting and the incredible things the young Marines and sailors are able to accomplish.” Today, a memorial lies outside of the 1/2 headquarters building engraved with the names of the service members lost in support of the War on Terror. The first 18 belong to those who valiantly fell during the push through An Nasiriyah. Their rust-touched dog tags hang restlessly, having weathered the decade of war, and freshly-cut flowers lay in solemn remembrance of their sacrifice. “It’s an incredible honor,” said Sosa. “I’m very thankful that I’ve had this opportunity and that I cannot only commemorate the history of the battalion, but remember and share the history with the Marines.”

ied at four under par after regulation play and two holes of sudden death, Methodist University’s Mike Wesko watched his 20-footer roll into the cup as he beat out Oglethorpe University’s Eric Quinn to claim the individual title in the Gold Division of the 42nd annual Intercollegiate Golf Championship March 24. Wesko played at Paradise Point Golf Course three years in a row but has never achieved an individual win. “It was my last year playing here and it was good to finish off with a win,” said Wesko. “It’s a really special Event aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.” Winning the Gold Division’s team victory was Oglethorpe University from Atlanta, Ga., with a combined score of 843. Scarlett Division winners were Averett University with a score of 880 in team play and Oddi Hurri in individuals with a score of five-under par. Not on top of the competition, but on top of the world, Zach Ramey from Shenandoah University scored a hole-in-one on the seventh hole on the Scarlett course. A combination of college and amateur team play took place for the first two rounds of the championship. For the first time in championship history, the Camp Lejeune amateur team led after the first round of best ball. David Johnson, Kyle Fuller from Randolph Macon and Jason Harris from Johnson and Wales comprised the first place team in the best ball competition. Hosting a premier college tournament is special for the base, said Scott Krahl, director of golf for Paradise Point Golf Course. “The rounds ran late, it was cold and rainy, but there were still some good scores out there today,” said Krahl. “The teams keep coming back, and I keep hearing ‘this is our favorite event’ from many of the teams.”

We’re going to keep walking until they find a cure. Corinne Edwards, Miss North Carolina and co-chairman of the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes

research, sponsored the seventh annual Walk to Cure Diabetes March 23 in Jacksonville, N.C, an event where hundreds gathered to support the cause. “We have found that diabetes affects many of the immediate families of the people participating,” said Karen Salefsky, the co-chairman of the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes. “Many people even in the committee

have been diagnosed.” Donations help make developing things like the artificial pancreas, recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, possible. There is no cure to diabetes yet, but new developments bring it closer. Many have been affected by diabetes, by either living with it or knowing someone who does. “We’re going to keep walking until they find

the cure,” said Corinne Edwards, Miss North Carolina and cochairman of the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes. “And when they find it we’ll be walking in celebration.” More than 400 people showed up in support of finding a cure to diabetes. “To have this much support from this community and Camp Lejeune is wonderful. We’re thrilled. This has been our biggest turnout.” “The seventh annual Walk to Cure Diabetes spreads knowledge about type one diabetes. They’re doing everything they can to help find the cure,” said Salefsky.

This was the second annual event after a six-year break due to Marine engineer units deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Four companies of Marine engineers stood tall awaiting the order to celebrate the day of St. Patrick, their patron saint, during the 2nd Marine Engineer Battalion St. Patrick’s Day field meet at Ellis Field at Courthouse Bay March 14. During the celebration, various engineer units competed through 16 events during the field meet. The Marines continued an engineer tradition after a six-year break due to many of their units deploying to Iraq and

Afghanistan when they revitalized their annual field meet last year. “It’s a great change of pace for the engineers,” said Matthew Fletcher, a contractor for the Marine Corps Engineer School. “The field meet helps them build unit cohesion and gets them out of the everyday workplace environment.” The event meant more than just a St. Patrick’s Day celebration for the Marines; it was a celebration of their craft and the bonds forged within the engineer field. Marines of all ranks let loose during the field meet. “I’m walking around and listening to the Marines, and they’re

having a great time,” said Sgt. Maj. Veney Cochran, the sergeant major of the Marine Corps Engineer School. “Seeing the senior Marines and junior Marines do things like this together makes me happy.” The tug-of-war, the water hose relay and the ironman relay events promoted teamwork and small unit leadership. “Small unit leadership is big in everything they do,” said Cochran. “In order to complete every event you have to have teamwork.” “You have to break away from the daily activities,” said Cochran. “Being able to let your hair down and hang out for a day is important.”

Racers await the start of the race at Henderson Pond Recreational Area aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 17. This was the first race hosted by Down East Cyclists on their own trail in three years.

Down East Cyclists rebuild trail, hold first race in three years PFC. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


local cyclist had a mission to build a mountainbike trail, but more importantly, he wanted to create a place where families can go spend time together and have fun. Jeff LeBlanc, a retired master gunnery sergeant and president of Down East Cyclists, did something he’s been waiting three years to do, host a mountain-bike race. LeBlanc officially opened the mountain-bike trail and hosted two races,

one including a children’s race at Henderson Pond Recreation Area aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 17. The new trail plans started in 2010, when the old bike trail closed due to new base construction. By May 2011, a memorandum established an agreement between Down East Cyclists and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “The trail and surrounding area is already designated as the Henderson Pond Recreation Area,” said LeBlanc. “We want to make this a very exciting part of the base.” The trail is owned by the base commander of Camp Lejeune. It’s Down East Cyclists’ responsibility

to build and maintain the Henderson Pond Recreation Area trail and MCCS’s responsibility to supervise the process. The initiative brings more than a bike trail to Camp Lejeune. Marine Corps Community Services is slated to build picnic areas and a kayaking area allowing families to have picnics or just explore nature. Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, the commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, was on hand to share the excitement for the family-friendly trail. The 6.5-mile trail is split into different sections. The children raced through the

mile-long section and after receiving their awards, the trail officially opened and the adults raced the full length. “We love the kids,” said LeBlanc. “This is why we did their race first. Kids are the future. They’re going to carry on the mountain-bike tradition.” LeBlanc said when he raced with the competitors; it didn’t feel like a race. “It felt like a family day,” he continued. There is more in the works for the Henderson Pond Recreation Area but for now LeBlanc is planning more renovations and adjustments for the trail. For more information call 252-723-3298.

Stroller Warriors help beginners run 5K LANCE CPL. JACKELINE PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The Stroller Warriors of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune can be seen running and walking throughout the base’s exercise paths many times a week. They are, primarily military spouses, can be seen pushing babies and toddlers in strollers or accompanied by children pedaling bikes. Atlantic Marine Corps Communities has recently partnered with Stroller Warriors to help provide support to the program through its Lend Lease Community Fund. Ryanne Baker and Analisa Jernigan, members of Stroller Warriors, noticed many new members were novices to running or were returning after an extended absence. Baker and Jernigan decided to teach a program to coach beginners so they could run a 5K,

equivalent to a 3.1 mile race. The program includes a weekly threeday workout, starting with reasonable running and walking intervals, building each week until the running intervals far exceed the walking intervals. Walking is eventually omitted altogether so the participant can run a 5k, said Stephanie Geraghty, the founder and coordinator of Stroller Warriors. “Our main goal is to encourage military spouses to reach for goals they may not have been sure about on their own,” said Geraghty. “By hosting this program, we’re giving them a team they can depend on. All team members are accountable to each other to get their three workouts in a week and we’re providing a supportive environment for them to achieve the goal of completing a 5K.” She continued, “It’s something everyone can do even for those who don’t consider themselves runners or have

run in the past. This program makes it achievable.” The program concludes with a 5K organized by Stroller Warriors. By creating a Stroller Warriors 5K rather than joining an outside race, members can test their abilities in a comfortable setting said Geraghty. It’s also cheaper, she added. Stroller Warriors does not charge for competitions however they suggest members make a donation to charity. AMCC approached the club with an offer to help support them through the Lend Lease Community Fund after noticing the group workouts happening near AMCC communities. Many AMCC employees recently began to run together and were looking for local running clubs to support, said Dixie Lanier Johnson, the strategic marketing manager with AMCC. “Running has really brought our staff together, we’ve really gotten to

know each other,” said Lanier Johnson. “We’re excited to partner up with Stroller Warriors.” The union means more than financial support. Employees of AMCC are also planning on running with Stroller Clubs members at the upcoming Wounded Warrior Run. AMCC helped other local military organizations in the past, notably Hope For The Warriors by donating $100,000 along with three homes. “It’s really important they focus on spouses who may not be familiar with the area,” said Lanier Johnson. “It helps them feel more at home when they know people, especially since the military moves so much. Stroller Warriors is a great opportunity to make friends in the area.”

Spring showers don’t dampen family fun AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

Silly rabbit, fun is for families, and cloudy skies won’t keep them away. Nearly 1,000 service members and their families defied Mother Nature and attended the annual Meggahunt clad with rain boots and umbrellas at Tarawa Terrace Community Center aboard the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune housing area March 24. “We had the most participants for an event at

TTCC in many years, if ever,” declared Gabby Parrish, recreation specialist. “Our team prepped as much as possible the week prior to the event for our rain plan. We all pulled together with our amazing volunteers to bring as much of our outdoor plan as we could indoors. Our patrons waited patiently with us and responded wonderfully to moving the event inside.” The spring season started with more than a few sprinkles, but not even the change of venues dampened the spirits of the young egg hunters. “Our staff and volunteers were so excited to

provide a great experience for our participants, and all of our participants came with such cheerful, positive attitudes,” Parrish noted. Although the inclement weather called off the official egg hunt, as well as other activities like games and inflatables, children didn’t leave emptyhanded. “We supplemented those missing items with awesome crafts correlating with the spring season, including tulip picture frames, rain sticks, kites and windsocks,” stated Lorraine Fuller, recreation director.

‘Dark Skies’ warn of ‘Dead Man Down’ fiasco Now playing at Camp Lejeune

“DARK SKIES” (PG13) “Dark Skies” is a psychological horror film about a family that is being terrorized by aliens. The story revolves around a couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from skeptical friends and neighbors, the couple is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family. Keri Russell (“Extraordinary Measures,” “August Rush”) stars as Lacy Barrett, the mother of a family terrorized by aliens. Josh Hamilton (“J. Edgar,” ”Away We Go”) stars as Daniel Barrett, her husband. The Barrett family’s suburban life is rocked by an escalating series of disturbing events. Soon, their peaceful and safe home quickly unravels when it becomes clear a terrifying and deadly force is after them. Daniel and Lacy take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family and to save them from an apparent alien presence who preys on their children. Co-starring are Dakota Goyo (“Real Steel,” “Thor”) as Jesse Barrett, Kadan Rockett as Sam Barrett, and J. K. Simmons

School Liaison Program relieves families’ stress CPL. ANTHONY J. KIRBY

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

With moving season just around the corner, families are naturally concerned about their children’s education. Parents’ minds were put at ease recently thanks to a special guest-visit from a superintendent. Toni Badone, the superintendent for Yuma, Ariz., high school district, met with families moving to Yuma to provide information about its schools. In the meeting at the Russell Marine and Family Service Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, families received power point presentations as well as pamphlets and books to assist them with the moving process. Parents and children were split up into two rooms. Jill Campbell, a School Liaison for New River, talked to the children about moving. Campbell kept the kids entertained with arts and crafts, book readings and a quick lesson of how to use Google Earth to see what the area they’ll be moving to looks like. She also showed them how to find activities in their new living area. Badone spoke with parents about topics such as differences in school curriculums, the partnership of the community and what to expect from Yuma schools. The information she gave was specific to each family in attendance to help with their needs. The families at the meeting had kids ranging from elementary to high schoolers. Badone said test scores and a child’s performance can be affected by a move just because it’s a change, not necessarily because the move is good or bad. Growing up as a military child herself, Badone knows how important it is for children to be happy with their new school. “If you know where you’re going and you feel comfortable with it, your child is going to be more comfortable and the whole family is happier at home,” said Badone. Families appreciated her coming by to share the knowledge she had.

“If this was something to be established, I’d highly recommend it,” said 1st Lt. Omen Quelvog with Marine Air Control Squadron 2 at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. Families can utilize the School Liaison Program to gather school information. It’s a program geared to connecting families with liaisons in the areas they are moving to. This helps them decide what school is best for their kids. The liaison officers provide information about public, private and base schools and their hours of operation. The program has many services, some of which provide information about graduation requirements, home school linkage or support, referral to military and community agencies and deployment support. All military branches are allowed to use this program. Though the internet can be used to find the information given, the liaison officers give the most accurate information, said Donna Graddy, a Camp Lejeune school liaison officer. “You’ll get the truth,” said Graddy about actually speaking with a liaison. “You can find out a lot of information online, but it’s not always the truth.” Camp Lejeune School Liaison Officer Julie Fulton said not only is the School Liaison Program more accurate, but it’s more time efficient as well. “You can call me and talk to me on the phone for five minutes, and I can send you an email with 14 links that are critical to what you want to know,” said Fulton. “We’re like super Google. We’re just a lot more efficient and can take a lot more stress off the family.” Families are highly encouraged to take advantage of the School Liaison Program, said Graddy. Those who use the program are calmer and less stressed. “Information is power,” said Graddy. “We try and give them more knowledge so they can make good decisions when they’re moving.” See the complete list at mccsleje

A military child reads to Lily, a reading education assistant dog with Love On a Leash, as part of the Reading with Dogs program hosted by the Exceptional Family Member Program at the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 13.

Furry friends unleash kids’ love for reading AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

The loyalty, unconditional love and utter cuteness of a canine companion are unmatched. During life’s greatest challenges, dogs don’t flinch in their devotion. For many children, reading is one of the most daunting skills to learn, but with a furry friend by their side lending a comforting paw and a listening ear, story time becomes better than recess. Military children practiced their literary abilities during the Reading with Dogs event hosted by the Exceptional Family Member Program at the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. “The program offers children a fun, comfortable environment for reading,” said Daryl Witt, EFMP training, education and outreach specialist. Several children were eager to meet, sit with and pet the reading education dogs from the Coastal Carolina Chapter of Love on a Leash, a national foundation dedicated to using pet therapy as a means to help people. “The therapy dogs provide a nonjudgmental listener – one who will accept their story exactly as they read it,” Witt explained. “For many students, it allows them the chance to relax and

experience stress-free reading.” Cuddled up with their favorite book, each child spent 15 minutes reading out loud to the pup to which they were assigned. Many of the dogs laid their heads on the children’s laps while they read or placed their paws on the book when a child struggled with a word. “It’s a great way for kids who are just learning to read to boost their confidence,” noted Tricia Bowers-Young, EFMP case worker. “They don’t have to worry about getting embarrassed.” The program is offered four times a year, and the feedback from families is overwhelmingly positive. Since their first experience last July, Tina Petri and her son regularly attend the Reading with Dogs events. “Kendra, the specially trained dog, paid attention to his reading and helped to build his confidence,” Petri stated. “She wasn’t there to correct him but simply to listen and to encourage him to continue reading.” According to Petri, it was the first time her son ever showed an interest in reading, and when he asked if he could come to the next event, his mother signed him up immediately.

Marines, civilians cook, compete for top chef CPL. ISAI OQUELI Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Sodexo, the Marine Corps’ mess hall management company, hosted Marine and civilian chefs from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, Marine Corps Air Station New River, Marine Corps Base Camp Geiger and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in the first quarterly Chef of the Quarter Competition at the Wallace Creek Mess Hall aboard MCB Camp Lejeune March 19. Sodexo hosted the event to showcase all the cooking talent in the mess halls to determine who will compete for chef of Photo by Cpl. Isai Oqueli the year in early 2014. “Food service is very Cpl.

night,” said Dau Chapman, district executive chef with Sodexo. “We want them to show and tell how much talent they have.” Chefs from the competing bases participated in a workshop and took a written test while competing for their spot as chef of the quarter. Marine and civilian teams exercised time management creating a spring-themed, fourcourse meal from scratch in a limited amount of time. “It’s a lot of work,” said Sgt. Michael Watts,

certified chef and chief cook at the Wallace Creek Mess Hall. “You have to be able to get your ingredients and equipment together, cook it and plate it in four hours.” Cpl. Marshall Griffiths and Lance Cpl. Ashley White-Langer from MCAS New Rivers’ mess hall 4012 won the Chef of the Quarter trophy and have an opportunity to compete at Chef of the Year. “It was a fun experience,” said Griffiths. “It gave us a chance to actually cook like we want.”

MEGGAHUNT FROM 1C The MCB Camp Lejeune and Onslow County areas provide plenty of opportunities for families to participate in egg hunts, but Fuller explained the unique aspect that keeps Meggahunt’s popularity growing from year to year. “We like to put a little military spin on our event with a special guest appearance from Gunny Bunny,” she confessed. “He’s a well-known highlight of Meggahunt, and we didn’t close the event until every child had their picture taken with him.” Shanna Turner, a military spouse, missed Gunny Bunny’s first appearance at last year’s event and was determined to bring her son to meet him and bring home a keepsake picture this year. “We made sure to be here,” she said. “(My son) loved seeing Gunny Bunny wearing daddy’s shirt.” Jim Johnson was in town visiting family when he heard about Meggahunt and chose to attend despite the inclement weather. “We weren’t discouraged. We knew there was a Plan B,” he commented. Even with record-setting crowds, the volunteers and staff ran the event like a well-oiled machine. “I believe our staff sets themselves apart for all of our events with their eagerness to send everyone home happy,” Parrish exorted. “We all truly love and

appreciate our community, and we enjoy offering them as many opportunities to get out with their loved ones as we can. To have an event go off without a hitch, like Meggahunt did, really speaks volumes about how awesome our team and our participants are.” Although they saw sunshine on a cloudy day, Fuller and Parrish were disappointed the new Bunny Trail for children four-years-old and younger didn’t have its debut. “TTCC wanted to make this year’s event a safer experience for the little ones,” Fuller said. “Families could walk along the trail with special helpers placing eggs down for the children to find as they walked through. We had big hopes it would respond to safety concerns while satisfying the kids’ egg hunt needs.” Fuller assured the trail will be implemented into next year’s Meggahunt, but she and Parrish were thankful for the encouragement from the hundreds of families who came out. “Most families were so pleased the event continued despite inclement weather,” Parrish pointed out. “The children loved the crafts, movie, Gunny Bunny and Photo by Amy Binkley Easter bags so much, I’m not sure they knew the difGunny Bunny poses with a young fan during ference of having the event held indoors.” the Meggahunt activities at Tarawa Terrace Community Center aboard the Marine Corps For more information call 450-1687.

Marines, local restaurant support cancer research with car show CPL. CHARLIE CLARK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


ames Thomas Anthony Valvano, nicknamed “Jimmy V,” is famous for coaching the 54-52 North Carolina State victory during the long odds match up against Houston in the 1983 NCAA Tournament. Valvano’s doctor diagnosed him with bone cancer in June of 1992. During a 1993 speech, Valvano said, “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” He succumbed to his cancer two months after his speech, but Jimmy V’s inspiration and determination, which defined his coaching career, carries on today. The V Foundation for Cancer Research, formed by Valvano and the sports network ESPN, partnered with Applebee’s to raise money and cancer awareness in Jacksonville, N.C., March 23. The establishment continues its support of the V Foundation every year during the month of March to help raise money for research and cancer awareness with different events. The local restaurant

hosted a V Foundation car show in its parking lot. Marines, their families and other base personnel attended the event. The car show featured 32 classic cars, muscle cars, imports, trucks and sports utility vehicles and raised more than $1,000 for Duke Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer research as well as cancer awareness. Participants and spectators smashed a demolished car with a sledge hammer for $5 a turn and bought concessions during the event adding to monies raised. “Our main goal was for everyone who participated and showed up to have a great time, see some quality cars and raise money for children’s cancer research,” said Kristian V. Solberg, a car show judge. “It’s really cool to have people who build cars as a hobby to come out and put on a show (where) they can show off their work and have it be for a good cause too.” Jim Williams, a car show participant, won the first place in classic auto and best in show with his 2001 Z06 Corvette. “It was great to see everyone who came out,” Williams said. “I had a great time seeing the

different cars shown and we raised money for cancer research, so it was all worth it even with the uncooperative weather.” The restaurant raised approximately $11,000 last year for the foundation. This year the franchise is aiming for $185,000. “The fundraising ends the first week of April,” Solberg said. “The second week of April is when we start planning the next year’s events. We spend a year making sure everything is ready to rock and roll; then we make it happen.” For more information call at 347-6011 or email

MCIEAST, NAVFAC outreach Chaplain’s Corner helps small businesses thrive Love out loud LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps Base Installations East and Naval Facilities Engineering Command have been hosting an annual outreach event for the last few years to help small business owners navigate working aboard a government installation. This year’s annual meeting was held at Coastal Carolina Community College March 19 and focused on changes over the previous year and the basics of conducting business with the base. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s emphasis on small business is not new, said Jo Rozier, deputy of the Office of Small Business Programs with Marine Corps Installations East. “The small business program

utilized today traces its roots directly to small business legislation enacted by Congress in the early 1940s,” said Rozier. Their devotion has not wavered; today 73 percent of all business contracts in Marine Corps Installations East for this fiscal year were awarded to small businesses. “Small businesses remain a vital part of our operation,” said Brig. Gen. Thomas Gorry, the commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East. “It’s something we are very proud of. It’s something we strive for and partner with the state of North Carolina to achieve.” The outreach event included question and answer sessions, remarks from the leaders of local installations and Naval Facilities Engineering Command, panels about new legislation, resources on the federal market, legal concerns,

and trends in federal contracting. “For firms interested in doing business with the base, it is important to realize for contracting purposes Camp Lejeune is not a single entity but rather a collection of several,” said Rozier. “Three tenant activities, in addition to the base itself, have contracting offices aboard the installation. Then, there are several major base tenants who represent a lot of opportunity for small business, but their principle buying offices are located external to Camp Lejeune, for example the Commissary. It is a little harder to reach them.” For small business assistance with Marine Corps Installations East call 451-8424. For assistance with Naval Facilities Engineering Command call at 451-2582 extension 5289.

NAVY CMDR. HAROLD CASERTA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

I want to share with you a story told by Gary Smalley and John Trent entitled “Leaving the Light On.” For several years a father took his older daughter out for a weekly date. They’d go to dinner, breakfast, the movies – simply a father having special time with one of his children. Recently he decided it was time to take the youngest daughter out for special time as well. So on their first date he took her out to breakfast at a local fast-food restaurant. They had just been served their pancakes when the young father decided it would be a good time to tell this child how much he loved and appreciated her. “Jenny,” he said, “I want you to know how much I love you and how special you are to mom and me. We prayed for you for years and now that you’re here and growing up to be such a wonderful girl, we couldn’t be more proud of you.” Once he has said all this, he stopped and reached over for his fork to begin eating, but he never got his fork to his mouth. His daughter reached out her little hand and laid it on her father’s hand. His eyes went to hers, and in a soft, pleading voice she said, “Longer, daddy, longer.” He put down his fork and proceeded to tell her some more reasons and ways they loved and appreciated her, and then he again reached for his fork. A second time and a third and a fourth time he heard the words, “Longer, daddy, longer.” Our lives in the Navy and Marine Corps are challenging, rewarding and difficult all at the same time. It’s challenging to deploy, but it is where we put into practice the skills we’ve learned during training. Training is rewarding in that most return with a sense of pride; difficult in that deployments takes us away for extended periods of time from those they love. If you ask a Marine or sailor, separation from loved ones is often times harder than the deployment. Deployment gives one time to reflect on making a better marriage, playing more with children or telling loved ones how special they are and how much they are loved. Deep down, our feelings are the very same as the young father in this story – your spouse and children are ones you’ve prayed, hoped, fought and sacrificed for. It has been said wisdom is what you learn after you think you know it all. During this Easter season when God’s love for each of us is celebrated, resolve to take every opportunity (here is where wisdom is put into practice) to reach out and tell your loved ones how very special they are to you. Now is the time to speak from a full heart. When you think you are finished, remember, “Longer daddy, longer.” You can never tell the people you love that you love them too much.
