Fewer Furlough Days for Civilians NICK SIMEONE



American Forces Press Service

The Defense Department has revised from 22 to 14 the number of days hundreds of thousands of civilian employees could be furloughed this year because of the budget sequester, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced. In addition, a senior Defense Department official speaking on background told reporters the start of the furloughs will be delayed until mid-to-late June, after more than 700,000 department employees receive furlough notices now set to go out in early May. Furloughs would happen over seven two-week pay periods until the end of September, when the current fiscal year ends, the senior official said, with employees likely to be told not to come to work for two days during each of those pay periods. Department officials say they are still working to determine which employees might be exempted. Hagel characterized the reduced furloughs as well as a revised estimate of sequestration’s impact on the defense budget as good news. The changes follow Congressional approval last week of a defense appropriations bill that prevented an additional six billion dollars in cuts, ordered under sequestration, from taking effect. “It reduces a shortfall at least in the operations budget,“ the secretary told reporters at a SEE FURLOUGH 7A

eat, snow, rain and mud marked Combat Logistics Battalion 6’s field exercise at Fort Pickett, Va., March 15 through 26. With temperatures around a balmy 30 degrees Fahrenheit, the Marines challenged each other with broad scenarios ranging from building relationships to handling hostilities. The Marines honed their logistical capabilities for their upcoming deployment

in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. “It prepares us for combat,” said 1st Sgt. Bernard Moran, company first sergeant. “It gives a real life atmosphere that prepares us for what could happen and what we can expect. It helps us make solid plans.” The training began when the CLB-6 maneuvered all its personnel and equipment to Fort Pickett on tactical convoys from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Once there, the Marines set up forward operating bases and logistical support areas and moved vehicles,

supplies and personnel between. During the tactiful scenario, the Marines interacted with the local population and fought enemy forces. “(It was) good, cold,” said Lance Cpl. Danny Baldwin, a reservist distribution clerk with Combat Logistics Company, who also worked forward security during the exercise. “Getting the idea across that we’re not going to know what happens next is important because over there it’s an unpredictable environment. And, we’ve just got to be ready to go quickly.”

...because over there it’s an unpredictable environment. Lance Cpl. Danny Baldwin, a reservist distribution clerk with Combat Logistics Company

The Marines also continued their annual training to include vehicle rollover training, enhanced marksmanship training or more occupational specific training to finalize their preparations for the battalion’s upcoming deployment. “This is probably my favorite (part of it),” said

SOI instructor, wife save man’s life with CPR STAFF REPORTS Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

An instructor from School of Infantry East was car shopping with his wife earlier this year when he heard “a loud thud” and turned to see a dealership employee lying lifeless on the floor. While many onlookers stood still, seemingly paralyzed by shock, instinct and training took over for Sgt. David Rogers and his wife Anastasia Rogers. Without hesitation, the couple assessed the situation and discovered the employee did not have a pulse. Together they began CPR. With Anastasia performing rescue breathing and David executing chest compressions, they restored the victim’s pulse. The unlikely heroes continued CPR until paramedics arrived, saving the life of a man neither knew. Though recognition or accolades were likely the furthest thoughts from the couple’s minds that day, Marine leaders took notice. On March 26 David received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and Anastasia a certificate of commendation from the

The Navy and Marine Corps awarded Sgt. David Rogers and Anastasia Rogers for their quick thinking to save a man’s life. commanding officer of Infantry Training Battalion, School of Infantry-East. Following the presentation, David’s humility gave way to pride as he spoke of his wife. “We are a great team,” he said. According to the National Institute of Health, a person

who is not breathing can suffer permanent brain damage within four minutes and die within six minutes without CPR. The lifesaving steps before the arrival of paramedics greatly increases chances of survival. However, health institute data indicates paramedics more often arrive

on scene to discover nobody has performed CPR. David and Anastasia agree consistent follow-on training and recertification in CPR were among the most significant factors that day enabling them to save a life. “If you do something a thousand times, eventually it becomes second nature to you. I’ve done CPR enough to know I can jump into a situation and take charge.” David said. After learning CPR, it is important to regularly recertify the skill and stay current in new advances, said Anastasia. “That way when a situation occurs it’s second nature to you,” she said. David used the occasion to offer a piece of advice about CPR training. “Do as much as you can – train. Everybody should be trained in CPR. Don’t take it with a grain of salt. I thought I was going to go there to buy a car, not save somebody’s life.” David and Anastasia recently had dinner with the man they saved and his family. “He’s doing really well,” said David. “There’s something left here on earth for him to do, we just helped him stay here.”

NATO officials are closely analyzing what the future cyber warrior will look like as the war landscape shifts from air, ground and sea

Veterans not affected by sequestration cuts I have received many inquiries by veterans regarding the impact on VA benefits and pending cases due to the potential looming sequestration. According to recent inquiries made by some of our elected officials in Washington. “Those who rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs for medical care, disability benefits or educational assistance will be spared whatever pain eventually comes from sequestration because the agency is exempt from the automatic budget reductions,” the chairman of the house veterans committee said. The VA’s budget is totally exempt from the automatic cuts of last

December, so any reports about veterans’ programs being harmed are pure fabrication, according to The Washington Examiner. The issue on the cuts is rooted in two conflicting laws. One passed in 1985 allowing a twopercent cut to veterans’ health care in a sequestration while the other, passed in 2010, exempted the VA from any cuts. This triggered a series of letters from the chairman of the house veterans committee to the VA and the White House Office of Management and Budget. White House Office of Management and Budget responded in June 2012

all programs administered by VA were exempt from sequestration, but the agency could face cuts in undefined administrative expenses. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki repeated the assertion in a congressional testimony July 2012. “VA is exempt from sequestration except for administrative costs,” Shinseki said. “I don’t have a definition of administrative costs right now.” In December 2012, a letter from VA Secretary Eric Shinseki affirmed the entire VA budget, including administrative expenses, are exempt from automatic cuts. While the VA is completely exempt from

sequestration, veterans could see some disruptions. For instance, veterans filing disability claims must get their military and medical records from the Department of Defense, which may face personnel reductions as well. This could affect the linking of electronic health records with the VA. In the interim, it is recommended you make copies of your medical records. For any additional questions, please contact the Retired Services Office in building 60, Room 142 located in the Camp Lejeune Reception Center, or call 451-0287.

Centcom-area troops to get commercial tickets for R&R flights DAVID VERGUN

Army News Service

Beginning this month, service members and others serving overseas in U.S. Central Command’s area of operations will be issued commercial airline tickets to travel to their rest and recuperation leave destination, officials said. Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., Centcom’s overseas area of responsibility encompasses a region stretching from Egypt to Afghanistan, officials said. Previously, the only R&R travel option was to fly charter air to Atlanta or Dallas from Kuwait, said Army Lt. Col. Dave Homza, chief of the R&R Task Force. Now service members will be issued individual commercial tickets to their approved R&R leave destination, be it stateside

or elsewhere in the world. A pilot program started Jan. 15 offered commercial tickets to some service members and DOD civilians when flying home from Kuwait on R&R. Full transition to commercial tickets for all R&R passengers begin April 1 as charter flights end, an Army official said. The Army has been serving as DOD’s executive agent for Centcom’s R&R Leave Program since it started in 2003, Homza said. About 96 percent of the passengers taking R&R flights over that timespan have been soldiers. Eligibility requirements for R&R flights remain the same, he said. The person must be on at least a 12-month tour within the CENTCOM overseas area of operations, with at least 270 days on the ground.

At peak troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan, about 1,000 passengers a day were flying charter air to Atlanta or Dallas, Homza said. Today, that number has fallen to several dozen passengers daily. As the drawdown in Afghanistan picked up last year and as tours began decreasing from 12 to nine months, the Dallas R&R gateway was closed, consolidating R&R passengers traveling to the continental U.S. in Atlanta, he said. Also, smaller aircraft were chartered to save additional money, he added. During peak troop levels, the charters made good economic sense, Homza said. Now, transitioning to individual commercial tickets is more economical and gives soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and DOD civilians more travel flexibility, he added.

Military Child Month salutes children’s contributions TERRI MOON CRONK

American Forces Press Service

During April’s Month of the Military Child, the Defense Department recognizes the support provided by and sacrifices made by military children, said Barbara Thompson, director of DOD’s office of family policy/children and youth. Since 1983, DOD has recognized military children for the support they provide to their families. There are now 1.8 million children in the military system, Thompson said. “Military children, youth and teens are an integral part of their military parent because they stand by them, they’re proud of them, they recognize their sacrifices and they take on additional responsibilities to meet the needs of their families,” she said. Military children also receive national-level recognition, Thompson said. Following a presidential study directive in January 2011, she said, the cabinet secretaries signed a letter of support from their departments to military communities. Based on that directive, DOD has partnered with the Department of Agriculture and Health and Human

Services to increase the availability of high-quality child care off the installation, she said, adding that 66 percent of military families live off base. Thompson said she hopes civilian communities will also reach out to military children. “Our military children are embedded in their school systems and their neighborhoods,” she said. Military installations will celebrate the Month of the Military Child with activities such as parades, face painting, carnivals and other events that children enjoy, Thompson said. Activities information, she said, will be available through base newspapers, youth centers, child development center and family support centers. Even though the number of children with a deployed parent has decreased because of the U.S. military’s drawdown in Afghanistan, military families continue to face deployments, humanitarian missions and training, Thompson said. Regardless of the mission, military families are separated during times of holidays and children’s birthdays, she said. “That’s why we recognize that children serve, too,” Thompson said.

Knife hands have always been a prominent fixture in the discipline of junior Marines. Marine leaders are now saying it is a counterproductive tool for creating future leadership. What are better ways to instill respect and discipline instead of the knife hand? Ridiculous. Sounds like the path of creating a handful of wimps. If they can’t handle the knife hand, God forbid they go to war. Amber Warman

Are knife hands are better than pointing? Are we raising a generation of people who have to be hand-fed and babied for everything? You joined the military. This is not your doting grandparents summer trip to the beach. Monica Robinson

It is counterproductive, but as we have learned many times over the easiest way to get improvement is by positive reinforcement. The problem is we are creating, and have taken part in already creating, a generation filled with lawyer happy, self entitled know-it-all individuals with little to offer. They join the military to better themselves and what happens? We let them change the course of our Marine Corps. From Devil Dog to knife hands, we are losing the things that set the Marine Corps apart from every other branch. Chris Hubbard

Personally, I would rather have a knife hand in my face than a pointed index finger. These are Marines, they won’t have their hands in their pockets so not expecting a hand or finger to be used while being disciplined is simple not going to happen. Jennifer Hall Hornacek

Replace those leaders with men who care about our traditions, that’s how stop making it easier for Marines to be Marines. We have a reputation and you’re ruining it. Raymond Sullivan

he sound of small whirring propellers filled the air as Raven Unmanned Aerial Vehicles took to the skies during a training exercise aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, March 26. Approximately 12 Marines from Combat Logistics Battalion 6, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, split into three groups comprised of two-man teams to train with the Raven RQ-11B. The new system is the most updated model of lightweight Unmanned Aerial Vehicles used for reconnaissance missions overseas. A vehicle operator manually guides the aircraft through the sky, while a mission operator monitors the route and makes changes as necessary. The unit’s Marines trained with the Raven system in preparation for the CLB-6 upcoming deployment, said Mr. Lee E. Hess, a course chief at the smallUnmanned Aerial Vehicle school. The training included classroom lessons as well as a two-week practical application in the field to prepare the Marines for their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. Ravens use infrared and daylight

front-end cameras, making them useful for day and nighttime operations. They can operate more than six miles away from the ground controller, for up to 90 minutes. “It’s not waterproof like other systems, but it’s practical for desert operations,” said Cpl. Pedro J. Aldebol, a Marine with CLB-6 who took part in the training. “If it does get wet, you can still dry it off, and it will fly.” The technology gives Marines a bird’s eye view of the battle space and enemy territory without being in harm’s way. Weighing in at four pounds with the front-end camera attached, Ravens have removable wings that make the systems extremely portable. The aircraft are launched by hand, and used in a variety of locations. Their rugged design and adaptability make them valuable assets for military operations. “We can manually control the system by remote or autonomously via the Ground Control System,” said Sgt. Dustin T. Gill, a Marine with CLB-6 who trained with the new system. “We can even use one Raven to direct another.” These systems even have an auto land feature, which causes the Raven to descend at a specific coordinate.

LANCE CPL. SHAWN VALOSIN 2nd Marine Logistics Group


ore than 20 Marines f r o m Landing Support Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, waited anxiously for a C-130 Hercules to arrive at Marine Corps Air Station New River, N.C., March 20. For some of these Marines, it would be their first time jumping out of an aircraft since joining the fleet; others were fulfilling their quarterly jump requirements. Whatever the reason, the Marines were unified by their love for jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. “It’s probably the biggest rush you can get,” said second-time jumper Lance Cpl. Wesley R. Jetter who has been in the Corps for just over one year and was completing his first fleet jump. Service members split into groups, or “sticks,” of six to eight people. A stick leader led the group in a jump. He hollered “Follow me!” before leaping off the back of the C-130. The rest of the stick followed. “Jumping out of planes is scary at first, but once my parachute opens, I’m good to go,” said Jetter. He is currently a parachute rigger with CLR-27 and said he didn’t choose his job, but wouldn’t change it for any-

thing in the world. Riggers attend a threeweek course at Fort Benning, Ga. Aboard the aircraft “The aircrew maintains contact with the ground crew and relays information to the jump masters,” said Sgt. Milford Anthony, a platoon sergeant and air delivery chief with the Landing Support Co. “The jump masters then pass word to their Marines.” While some of the communication is done verbally, the amount of noise inside the aircraft makes hand and arm signals the safest method to ensure the correct message is passed to everyone. Marines typically make one jump during jump school and follow up with more after reporting to their units. During their first jump, novice jumpers wear red helmets and are known as “cherry jumpers.” The helmets make it easier for ground crew members and experienced jumpers to identify the cherry jumpers who may not be as familiar with canopy control and maneuvering the parachute to the ground safely,” said Milford. For this reason, people on the ground pay extra attention to them and can critique them so they become more proficient. “You have to be able to rely on the training you received at jump school - the biggest challenge to overcome is human nature,” said Milford.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. FURLOUGH FROM 1A Pentagon news conference. “We came out better than we went in under the sequester, where it looks like our number is $41 billion [in cuts] now versus the $46 billion.” But despite a Congressional reprieve, Hagel said the Pentagon is still going to be short at least $22 billion for operations and maintenance, “and that means we are going to have to prioritize and make some cuts and do what we’ve got to do,” including making sharp reductions in base operating support and training for nondeployed units. More critical in the long run, he said, is how budget cuts will affect readiness and the department’s overall mission. Because of that concern, he said he has directed Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to conduct an Photo by Cpl. Ed Galo

1st Lt. George A. Ivascu works in his office March 25 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Ivascu was awarded the 1st Lt. Travis Manion Marine Corps Officer Logistician of the Year Award for his outstanding work while leading Marines in a deployed environment.

2nd Marine Division officer receives logistician of the year award LANCE CPL. SCOTT WHITING 2nd Marine Division

Once a year, Marine Corps officers filling a logistics billet attend the 1st Lt. Travis Manion Marine Corps Officer Logistician of the Year Award. 1st Lt. George A. Ivascu, the assistant operations officer for the 2nd Marine Division G-4 section (installation and logistics management), received the 2012 logistician of the year award in Arlington, Va., recently. “Every logistics officer across the Marine Corps is eligible for the award,” said Ivascu. “It includes engineer, supply and other company grade officers in billets like those.” Manion, for whom the award was named, was killed in action while deployed as part of a military transition team in support of Operation Iraqi

Freedom. He was ambushed by a group of insurgents and led a counterattack, being fatally wounded by sniper fire while drawing fire away from his fellow service members. Manion was posthumously awarded the Silver Star, along with the Bronze Star with a combat “V” device for his actions. “(Manion) was a great hero, an awesome Marine and an excellent logistician,” said Ivascu. “There was a fund started in his name, and it turned into the award we have today.” Marines nominated for the award are chosen based on their leadership skills, exemplary actions and overall conduct. It is a long journey of passing numerous boards for the opportunity to receive such an award. “Part of my nomination was because I deployed with 1st Battalion, 9th Marines as a motor transport officer and led

Marines in combat,” Ivascu said. “The Marines did outstanding things. It wouldn’t have been possible for me to execute the mission I was given without them.” Upon returning from deployment in December 2011, Ivascu transferred to G-4, where he currently fills a captain’s billet. Ivascu’s work ethic, effort and positive attitude contributed to winning the award. “I love my job,” he said. “It is hands-down the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had.” At Ivascou’s current billet, he coordinates logistical support for battalions and regiments who are training or preparing to deploy. He provides units with the proper equipment to accomplish their tasks. “We make sure the units have what they need to support themselves, train, fight and return safely,” he said.

intensive department-wide review of U.S. strategic interests including how to protect the nation with fewer resources. “How do we prioritize the threats and then the capabilities required to deal with threats?” he said. “There will be some significant changes, there’s no way around it.” Dempsey said the department has already exhausted 80 percent of its operating funds halfway through the fiscal year and characterized the current budget situation as “not the deepest, but the steepest decline in our budget ever,” and warned it will affect military readiness into the future. “We will have to trade at some level and to some degree our future readiness for current operations,” the chairman said. He called on elected leaders to give the Pentagon the budget flexibility it needs to carry out institutional reforms.

CYBER FROM 1A something else,” the general said. “It’s some 25-year-old already in the uniform of their nation. They already have experience in Afghanistan or somewhere else. They’re going to be the two- or three-star generals or admirals solving problems.” Bayer said his charge is to develop ongoing training and an open problemsolving environment to tap into the minds of young leaders who can bring an innovative perspective as NATO and its transformation command shift from operational to contingency-based missions. “I want the junior leaders already in uniform [to be immersed] in this future world of complex problem-solving and begin to develop skills they need to work in an ambiguous uncertain, complex, fast-paced (environment),” Bayer said. As U.S. forces pivot to the Pacific during the simultaneous drawdown in Afghanistan, Bayer said, NATO priorities should adjust accordingly. “When Afghanistan is over, we go from an operations-centric alliance to a contingency-based alliance, which means being ready for the next thing, but unsure what that thing might be,” he explained. And NATO, he added, has played a large role in the United States being able to focus its attention on new challenges. “The only reason the U.S. can think about shifting priorities and emphasis to the Pacific is because we have a secure flank, and it’s called NATO,” Bayer said. “NATO should see this as an opportunity, not a threat, (as) increasingly, centers of power are going to be in that part of the world -- less so on the traditional East-West axis.” The general acknowledged the occasional challenges of consensus. “It’s frustrating to have 28 (nations) trying to work on something, but there’s nothing more powerful than when we get to the point where 28 say, ‘Yep, that’s the answer we can live with,’ because now we’re speaking as one.” After spending most of the last 20 years in operations since the advent of missions in the Balkans, Bayer said, it’s vital for NATO to update its training concept and revitalize its exercises program, the general said. “I could see the day where the security interests of the alliance will be challenged by some adversary who will employ information, influence, cyber and space,” he added. The response from the alliance, Bayer said, would not necessarily require the alliance to use air, sea or land forces in the way it traditionally has. “We’ve already forced [younger people] to operate very decentralized, and they’re ready for it, so we’ve got to figure out now how to get the institutions to catch up.” See related story, “Drone Wars,” on page 3A.

Instructor leads rebuilding of Engineers Course LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


hen an instructor at Marine Corps Engineer School saw the obstacle course he ran through as a junior Marine fall into disrepair, he and his peers led his students through a two-year restoration build of the course inspired by the lessons he teaches at the school. Gunnery Sgt. Peter Porter instructed the Marines how the obstacles he taught them to construct can wear down an enemy and give Marines an advantage in combat. He shared his motivation for the subject and gave them a challenge to be excited about. The opportunity provided an alternative to running and the other usual staples of physical fitness the school used. “Sixteen years later we still talk about running that course,” said Porter. “We’re just passing on that torch. It’s a tradition.” Porter teaches survivability, creating shelters, bearing the elements, and obstacles, developing ways to halt or slow down the progress of enemies advancing enough for Marines to have clear targets. A variety of muses inspired new obstacles and modifications to the traditional course. Some obstacles simply needed repairs; others were built anew with ideas and layouts from popular mud runs and endurance courses. “We took Marines out there whenever we could,” said Gunnery Sgt. Chris Metzger, an instructor at the Marine Corps Engineer School who teaches constructed obstacles, survivability,including classes on using concrete block and standing timber. Metzger headed the effort alongside Porter. “Sometimes we went out there together and sometimes we took turns and tag teamed it.” The course navigates through thickly wooded areas and deep, thick mud. There is a point with rope threaded through the limbs of trees to assist participants as they dredge through it. The thick woods and mud provided an obstacles alongside those constructed by instructors and students. The course provides a diverse

It’s spring - where are the fish?

Is it spring yet? Let’s see, the birds are singing, grass is growing, spring flowers are in bloom, and the hours of daylight continue to increase. The sun is higher in the sky and the pollen has yellowed much of the landscape. So why, as we have passed the equinox, does it feel like winter’s grip is hanging on with claws. Surf water temperatures at Bogue Pier have stagnated for the last three months in the low 50s, only this past weekend showed signs of life. Last year by now we were in the mid60s, at and the sea mullet bite was as hot as I’ve seen it in my 20 years here, there were also good catches of blues, flounder, drum, pompano

shad, specks and grays. And no, this is not an April Fool’s prank. So now that I’m done with my rant, I’ll get on with a fishing report. First, there are still trout in the creeks from the Neuse to the New River along with schools of drum in the marshes and creeks. I have landed specks the last few weeks from 16 to 21-inches. I have seen redfish in the creeks, but even Gulp! baits weren’t smelly enough to get their attention. I also had a surprise catch from one of the creeks; a three-pound shark bitted bluefish. It was probably up the creek playing hide-and-seek from sharks. Both the trout and bluefish tried to eat one of the 17-MR suspending MirrOlures, the electric chicken variety. They are great baits. By the way, I released the bluefish, he used up two of his lives on that day. There are other reports of trout and drum around. Core Creek is still producing big speckled trout along with both black and red drum. Ft. Macon and Cape Lookout are yielding coolers full of puffers along with some sea mullet. The sea mullet are also around Beaufort

Inlet and inside the Turning Basin. Boaters working the reefs like AR 315 and 320 are catching lots of big black sea bass, but no-keepee! Remember, plentiful or not, the season is closed until June. To date, Bogue Pier has recorded plenty of blowfish, rays, sharks and a scant few anemic sea mullet. Topsail piers are reporting some black drum, sea mullet and lots of puffers too. Oceanana Pier on Bogue banks is also open as of Easter weekend. Next week I will start reporting catches from all the Bogue Banks and Topsail piers. Offshore? We are in the “if you can get there” mode, and getting there means way offshore. The water temperature is in the mid 60s very far out and doesn’t get to the low 70s until you reach 200 to 250 fathoms - way out there. If you are willing to go way out there, there are dolphin and some nice wahoo. Finally, I got a great note from Captain Dean Lamont reporting from Weldon along the Roanoke River, that the shad bite has finally heated up, both on the fly and light spinning tackle.

Intramural golfers hit links CHANTEL GREEN

Special to the Globe


hen the 35 Camp Lejeune intramural golfers hit the greens on the scarlet side of the base’s Paradise Point Golf Course Tuesday morning, their reasons behind pursuing the game varied. Some started to play for the competition while others started to have fun. Many players picked up the game from a family member, and then there was one whose inspiration started 14 years ago with lessons from a golf legend.

The atmosphere was nonchalant; the players were there to have a good time, enjoy the outdoors, and try their luck on the links. “The scarlet side is less challenging than the gold course, and it’s good for those who are working on their game ... this one is a lot of fun to come out and play with a bunch of friends who are average golphers,” said Christopher Spencer, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Combat Logistics Battalion 6. Regardless of the low intensity course, each golfer had their own technique, routine and swing; but the same focus on their faces as they stepped up to the tee.

The greens were slow, but Sgt. William Peterson, Combat Logistics Regiment 27 had a specific routine before each shot. “Practice swings, step back for a brief second, step up to the ball, and make sure to do the same thing every time,” said Peterson. Each golfer learned through different outlets. Spencer, however, had the opportunity to take lessons from the 1946 winner of the Masters, Herman Keiser. Not only was Keiser on the PGA tour, but he also joined the Navy in 1942 for three years during World War II. After his discharge in 1945, he went back to professional golf, win-

ning the Masters the following year. “My parents had joined a country club, and one of my best friends’ grandfather had won the Masters, so I got to have a couple of free lessons from him,” said Spencer about his reason for starting to play the game. Every player learns the game differently, but it is rare to learn from a legend. Regardless of their golf background, there is something in each of them that always brings them back to the greens. It seems that Arnold Palmer was onto something when he boldy proclaimed golf to be the greatest game in the history of mankind.

The Marine Corps shooting team and British Royal Marines man the firing line during recent InterCorps Cup Rifle Competition at Stone Bay.

Corps shines in annual rifle contest LANCE CPL. JOSHUA W. GRANT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The Marine Corps shooting team beat out the British Royal Marines shooting team by just 40 combined points in this year’s Inter-Corps Cup Rifle Competition. The Marine Corps shooting team won the annual competition with a combined score of 2246 and 23 V’s and the Royal Marines

scored 2206 and 31 V’s. Eight members comprised each team and 300 was the highest possible individual score. Top shooters were Marine Cpl. Antonio Diconza with a score of 290 with 23V’s and Royal Marine Robert Wilson with 289 and 26Vs. The course of fire consisted of 20 rounds fired in 20 minutes from the standing position at the 200 yard line, 10 rounds in 60 seconds from the sitting position at the 200 yard line, 10 rounds

in 70 seconds from the prone position at the 300 yard line and 20 rounds in 20 minutes from the prone position at the 500 yard line. The Royal Marines competed outside their normal parameters in distance and equipment. The Brits fired the M16 service rifle rather than the L85A2 used in annual qualifications. “It’s a completely different type of competition shooting than what we’re used to,” said Warrant

Officer Paul Mckiernan, chief instructor of the Royal Marines combat marksmanship team. “This concentrates more on pure marksmanship skill. Our annual qualification only goes out to 400 yards and our national competition takes a select few out to 600 meters. It makes the 500 yard line something different for us.” It’s an honor to have competed in this competition with the Marines and we will be back next year, added Mckiernan.

It seemed the major from 4th Marine Division couldn’t miss as he watched the white lollipop rise above the burm time and again. In his debut appearance in a Division Match, Maj. Peter Rummler finished with 580 points and 52 V’s seizing the coveted top shooter and high tyro honors during the individual rifle portion of the Rummler 2013 Eastern Division Match Championship at the Stone Bay ranges. Rummler beat out the Marine Corps Shooting Team’s Cpl. Narendra Sookdeo who also scored 580. However

Rummler’s 52 V’s, a designation given to shots that hit dead center, was the tiebreaker over Sookdeo who scored 42 V’s. During an award ceremony March 29, Rummler said he was honored and humbled by the award. “I learned a lot while I was here and hopefully I’ll get a chance to come back.” Individual Pistol Gunnery Sgt. Jason Hedrick with the Marine Corps Reserve Team bested the field in the pistol competition with a commanding score of 573 and Hedrick H di k 23 X’s with Staff Sgt. Jonathan Shue of the Marine Corps Shooting Team finishing second with 567 points and 14 X’s. In pistol scoring, X’s are

Keeping Afloat Marines fight to earn title as water survival instructors


Special to The Globe


n attempt to survive a life-threatening situation is sure to be frightening enough, but a critical situation in the water would send most people into a fear driven panic. Marine Corps Instructors of Water Survival are not like most - they are always prepared to immediately react in troubled waters. During a recent three-week water survival course aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Johnson, N.C., more than 20 students fought to become instructors who

train Marines to respond when problems arise in the water. This course is a part of the Marine Corps Water Survival School which trains Marines and sailors to execute water survival tactics. The water survival course does not focus solely on pulling people out of the water, however. Amidst the physical training, survival tactics, and rescue drills, the students also focus on practical application for major injuries including the head, neck and spine. The MCIWS Course is intensive and has a reputation for being one of the toughest swim qualifications in the military.

tions, the Youth Sports Office reopened for the award presentation and rededication. Devoted volunteers, grateful parents, and dedicated staff who have spent countless hours and tremendous efforts for the kids involved filled the room. The commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East, Brig. Gen. Thomas Gorry presented the award to the staff. During the presentation he stressed his personal commitment of focusing on the children of Lejeune. “As long as we remember that it’s about teaching and interacting with kids, and developing children instead of winning, then that’s the accomplishment. Winning comes later,” said Gorry. As Williams humbly accepted the award on behalf of the organization’s staff and volunteers, he spoke once again of the importance of community in the lives of the kids. Williams ended the event by saying,“This really isn’t about youth sports, it’s about the community that we serve, and as long as we keep that close to our heart, we will be able to make the right decisions to make this program successful.” Politician and author, Benjamin Disraeli, once said that a nation’s youth are the trustees of its posterity. If this is true, then the posterity of Camp Lejeune’s community is in good hands.

ver the years, many studies have shown that having a strong sense of community can ease the mental growing pains of being a kid in today’s society. The youth sports program at MCCS Camp Lejeune understands the need for a child to have community; in fact, it is the core philosophy of the program. “With the daily grind and the rigors of the things that the military community has to deal with day in and day out, youth sports provides an outlet and what we feel is a safe haven to exercise energy into something positive,” said youth sports program manager, Christopher Williams. The organization plays an integrate role in the lives of military families on Camp Lejeune. Of course, it promotes an active and healthy lifestyle, but it also promotes a set of values that leave a mark on the lives of military kids. The impact that youth sports has on Lejeune’s kids would not be possible without the staff and volunteers who are fueled by their passion for the children. “I love working with kids in any capacity I can, and I like to tie the sports element into it, which makes youth sports an appropriate fit,” said Williams. The staff of the or-

ganization is a humble group; within minutes of silently observing their behavior, it is clear that they are worthy of recognition for their dedication and hard work. Last December, the staff received the acknowledgement they deserve when awarded the National Alliance of Youth Sports Excellence in Youth Sports Award. The non-profit organization is America’s leading advocate for positive and safe sports and activities for children. Each year the alliance recognizes five programs across the country, including civilian, private, and government youth sports entities. This is the first time in history that Lejeune’s youth sports program has been presented with this award for its commitment to providing quality youth sports programming. The award also recognizes the effort that the staff and volunteers put forth to ensure the children involved learn valuable lessons about core values and the importance of good character. The youth sports program assistant representative, Andrei Yournet, pointed out how important the program is to the community due to the communication, teamwork, and leadership skills that are instilled in the children. The program will continue to teach these essential life skills in their newly renovated office on Stone Street. On April 1, after 15 months of renova- See the complete list at mccsleje

he secret life of the military teenager means expecting the unexpected. Low flying Ospreys serve as alarm clocks, the booms of artillery training sounds for dinnertime and deployment schedules provide tentative vacation plans. While they appear unfazed by the sometimes chaotic order of their parents’ line of work, every teen needs a place to escape and someone willing to listen to what they have to say. For many teens living aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, the answers to their unspoken requests may be closer than they appear. The doors of the Brewster Teen Center, located on Brewster Boulevard, opened late last year and quickly became the popular place to be. “The purpose of the center is to give teens aboard base a safe place to go after school,” said Cedric McDonald, assistant manager. “It’s close enough they can walk here, it’s free and it’s just for them.” McDonald, who grew up in a military family, understands how the challenges the age group faces differ from their peers outside the gates and the impact a place like the Teen Center has on their lives. “When I was a kid, youth centers like this kept me out of a lot of trouble,” he confessed. “A lot can happen in those couple of hours after school when mom and dad aren’t home yet.” Teens who regularly visit the facility know the routine of the afternoon includes working hard so they can play harder. “It’s a fun place, but we know what needs to come first,” McDonald noted. “For the first hour and a half we focus strictly on homework and community involvement.

‘Olympus’ rises ‘Over’ raunchy college comedy Now playing at Camp Lejeune “21 AND OVER” (R) “21 and Over” is a teen comedy about a young man celebrating his 21st birthday. Justin Chon (“The Twilight Saga”) stars as Jeff Chang, a promising young student, who has always done what he is supposed to do. However, when his two best friends, Miller, played by Miles Teller (“Footloose,” “Project X”), and Casey, played by Skylar Astin (“Pitch Perfect”), surprise him with a visit to celebrate his most important day, he decides to do everything he has never done and wants to do. Knowing that it is the night before his big medical school exam, Chang agrees to accompany his friends for a drink. What was to be a quick beer becomes a night of humiliation, overindulgence, and utter debauchery. Co-starring are Sarah Wright (“The House Bunny”) as Nicole, and Jonathan Keltz (“Prom”) as Randy. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the “Hangover” screenwriter team, are making their directorial debut with this raunchy romp that showcases a rite of passage gone horribly wrong. “21 and Over” is a crude, outrageous, and hysterical comedy about coming of drinking age in the worst way and living youth to its fullest.

Now playing at the Patriot 12 and Carmike 16 in Jacksonville “OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN” (R) “Olympus Has Fallen” is an action thriller about a group of enemies who are taking over The White House Secret Service Code “Olympus”) and putting the President at peril. Gerard Butler (“Chasing Mavericks,” “300,” “Machine Gun Preacher”) stars as Mike Banning, a former Special Forces operative and now a secret service agent assigned to Presidential Detail. After a tragic accident involving the first family, Banning is demoted and assigned to desk duty. In the wake of a terrorist attack on the White House, Banning rushes to the scene, only to find himself trapped within fighting off the enemy while looking for the President’s little boy. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster. Aaron Eckhart (“Battle Los Angeles,” “The Dark Knight”) plays President Benjamin Asher, who is kidnapped by a terrorist mastermind capturing the White House.

Families form friendships during holiday egg hunt PFC. SULLIVAN LARAMIE 2nd Marine Logistics Group

The cloudy morning brightened as children darted through the woods in search of colorful eggs – and new friends. The family readiness officer for Combat Logistics Battalion 6, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, Mary C. Mathews, hosted an Easter egg hunt for the unit’s families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 23. “The kids loved it,” said Mathews. “At first they could care less (about) what’s in the eggs and wanted to get as many as possible, but after that they sat around for another 15 to 20 minutes, opening every single egg to see exactly what was in each (one).” The wide-eyed children broke open the plastic shells to find new toys and candy. In the process, they opened themselves to discover new friendships – something very important

to their parents. “It was nice to get out of the house and have somewhere to go with my son,” said Breyona L. Millard, the wife of Sgt. Matthew E. Millard, a smallarms repair technician with the unit. “It’s good to get all the parents together and go Easter-egg hunting with the kids before the (Marines) get deployed.” CLB-6 is currently conducting pre-deployment training on transportation, engineering and medical practice at Fort Pickett, Va. The unit is scheduled to deploy in a few months. Mathews hosted the event to establish friendships within CLB-6’s families so they could support each other during the deployment. “If they show up to these [events], they start to make those friends,” said Mathews. “They do find that person they click with, whether it’s a similar personality or if it’s the fact that their children get along well. Forming those relationships early

TEENS FROM 1C school group and are free to do whatever they choose.” From educational opportunities to flat out fun, activities overflow the Teen Center’s agenda. Nature Calls, an outdoor, hands-on class, allows teens to learn the basics of surviving in the wilderness while Diplomas to Degrees focuses on keeping the youth on the right academic path toward graduation and college preparation. “We want to see our teens’ progress and do big things with their lives,” said Jonathan Savage, a staff member. “We have so many different characters – gamers, athletes and people who just want to chill. They can come here and be themselves; it’s their safe haven.” The variety of field trips offered by the Teen Center is a major draw for the young

helps build their support networks so when they are having crazy day they know they’ve got another spouse within the battalion they can call.” By the time the children found all of the eggs, most of them had a new friend by their side. Groups of children then sat down with their parents to share their new found treasures. “Everybody was a little quiet at first,” said Mathews. “It took the parents a little bit, but once the kids started warming up to each other, the parents followed pretty quickly. It’s amazing how they can go to a playground, or go to an area where they know absolutely nobody, and within five minutes they’re (making friends with) someone new.” The unit has other family events, including beach parties and a family day, scheduled for the coming months, but Mathews and her assistants decided an early start would help the families.

adults. The staff and volunteers regularly trek with the teens to see movies, visit the indoor pools aboard base, bowl, and play paintball. “We don’t have to come; we want to come,” stated Allie Cozzens, a military teen. “It’s not just little kid stuff. I’ve met a lot of friends here.” Building relationships is a key part of a teenager’s development, but more often than not, they struggle to find someone who will not only listen and relate but guide them toward the wisest decisions. “Teens get left out of a lot of activities on base because much of the focus is on the younger kids,” McDonald pointed out. “When they have a place they can call their own, they’re more willing to open up. We provide an environment where they can talk about what they’re going through

Jana Guitar, library programs director, keeps her young audience involved by asking them to point out characters in the Easter-themed book during Storytime at the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune March 28.

Kids experience adventure during Storytime AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor


he late Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis, former First Lady of the United States, once said, “There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is best of all.” Books are maps to the adventures of children’s imaginations. At the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Storytime isn’t just a regularly scheduled event; it’s a weekly opportunity for children to make a new discoveries. “We try to make it a genuine learning experience,” explained Jana Guitar, programs director. “We’re aware of the core subjects they’ll learn in school and try to reinforce it with the stories we choose and read.” Guitar gathered with dozens of pre-schoolers and their parents to read a trio of holiday-themed books for the annual Easter Storytime at the library March 28. Little hands shot up when Guitar asked questions about the stories. Together, they counted along with the characters and lifted the flaps on the pages to discover the missing objects. “The kids are relaxed and eager to interact with the story,” Guitar noted.

When they get to come regularly, Storytime becomes part of the children’s routines and something they look forward to. Jana Guitar, Harriotte B. Smith Library programs director

“When they get to come regularly, Storytime becomes part of the children’s routines and something they look forward to.” Sean Pittman, youth services technician, is intentional when choosing which stories to read to his audience. “I don’t just pick books the kids will love but ones parents will also enjoy,” he admitted. “By doing that, the kids are enthralled in the story and the parents are more willing to engage and participate.” The tiny tots jumped at the chance to make their own Easter bags after Guitar announced the upcoming egg hunt and asked their parents for help with the decorating details. Adorned with glue, stickers and bunny-shaped construction paper, the kids prepared totes for the hunt and lined up anxiously before marching outside. Galina Eichenlaub, a military spouse, attended the library events for years with her daughter. “I feel like she was raised in this library,” she said. “We love coming, hearing the stories and

making the crafts.” At Pittman’s signal, the kids let loose and made a mad dash to the brightly-colored eggs hidden inside the fenced in pavilion area. “My goal is to make sure everyone has a good time no matter what,” Pittman stated. “It’s good for the kids to get out of the house and do something fun.” Every child went home with a bag full of the plastic eggs stuffed with toys, but a few wandered back inside to take a turn at one of the Advanced Workstations in Education literacy computers. “It reads books to them and teaches them how to identify things like animals, colors and numbers through different games,” Guitar commented. “It’s all for education, but it’s also fun.” Storytime takes place at the library every Thursday at 10 a.m., and at Tarawa Terrace and Midway Park Community Centers on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. For more information call 451-3026.

Changes expected for officers’ Chaplain’s Corner professional military education Spring brings LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training has changed over the years. What began as a box of books officers dredged through to complete their professional military education changed to a variety of useful learning models. “Throughout the last 15 years, we’ve developed a much more robust system,” said Cesare Cardi, the Camp Lejeune regional coordinator with Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training. “We now teach our officers in seminarbased courses. It’s like having a regional college at each one of our major military installations.” Twenty-five percent of officers complete their military education through the resident program at Marine Corps University at Marine Corps Base Quantico, which offers the courses in nine months, the shortest available time. Most officers use a distance program, said Cardi, where students gather one evening a week for classes over two years. When seeking professional military education officers typically only have those two options. However, the Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training began developing a new best-ofboth-worlds educational method: the blended seminar model. The blended seminar model takes one year and includes two periods of focused education with daily classes at the beginning and end of the course as well as weekly online lessons. “It’s not just about being able to complete a distance course in one

year instead of two, but rather it allows them very concentrated periods where they can come to class every day and focus their attention on their studies,” said Cardi. “Those are typically the studies where it’s more conducive to a group environment where students are sharing ideas.” The blended seminar allows officers to gain operational expertise while contributing to their unit and minimizing the disruption to their lives. The blended seminar model is still in the works. It is tentatively scheduled to begin in June depending on any fiscal constraints, and its first participants will be chosen after a selection process. “You can think of it in terms of some colleges,” said Cardi. “Some go to a college and stay there for four years, some take their courses online, and some take them in the classroom and online.” The methods give Marines different options for learning topics important for their careers. “It’s in an officer’s professional interest to attend these courses,” said Cardi. “I think officers understand it enhances their ability to grow in the Marine Corps. It’s a very wise decision” Courses taught include Expeditionary Warfare School for company grade officers and the Command and Staff College Course for majors. The Expeditionary Warfare School teaches operational planning at the battalion to brigade level; students learn how to apply all aspects of Marine Air Ground Task Force throughout the entire realm of operations across the spectrum of warfare, said Cardi. The Command and Staff College

Course focuses on employment of utilities at joint level operations and teaches using complex problems requiring a higher degree of critical thinking. One problem many prospective students run into is how to fit the classes into a limited time frame. “One of the things we’ve noticed with Marines with fast-paced operational tempo is people put off completing their education,” said Cardi, “Oftentimes what happens is within a year to year and a half of (an upcoming) promotion they are scrambling to try to figure out how to do it. There is no simpler way to complete this course. You can’t just work faster. The course is designed like a college course. It has a set curriculum. It has the same schedule globally.” Other Marines set their hopes on the resident program. “Sometimes officers wait to see if they are going to be selected for the resident course at Quantico,” said Cardi “The distance education program can take up to two years to complete so it’s important to get started early.” Marines can enroll in the distance program and if selected, attend the resident program instead, Cardi added. Education can be a difficult road to navigate, but the staff at Camp Lejeune’s Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training is available to assist. Marines can walk-in for assistance whenever they require. Camp Lejeune’s Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training office is located in building 403.

encouragement TONY BEZY

CREDO director

I love baseball – at least most of it. Baseball season is starting for our youngest child. Recently, as I watched my son’s team practice, I reflected on a conversation we had last year. “Dad, we lost the game because our utility outfielder dropped a routine fly in the last inning. That idiot,” he said. I recalled I had listened attentively and responded, “Son, make a virtuous response to other persons when they make mistakes.” To help him understand, I appealed to Philippians 4:8 which states, “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” He looked puzzled. I went on to say, “Practice thinking the best of others, and when they stumble, encourage them to be at their best in attitude if not in practice. Develop a habit of positive outlook. Strive to do well yourself and encourage the good in others.” He still looked puzzled. I continued, “Respond to others with an approach of goodwill and relationship-building even if tempted to only see their maddening weaknesses and blatant shortcomings.” I wondered if he took any of this in, and later found out. A week later the coach spoke to me after the practice and commented on my son’s new approach. He said, “Your son is really encouraging the less skilled players.” Buoyed by my son’s actions, I recalled a passage from Philippians 2:6-11 which says, “Though he was in the form of God, he did not deem equality with God something to be grasped at. Rather, he emptied himself and took the form of a slave, being born in the likeness of men. He was known to be of human estate, and it was thus that he humbled himself, obediently accepting even death, death on a cross. Because of this, God highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name above every other name. So that every knee must bend in the heavens, on the earth, and under the earth, and every tongue proclaim to the glory of God the father.” If the king of kings can exercise humility, then we are called to as well. The all-powerful, humbled himself, and if our posture is a healthy one, we’ll join in, doing our part in our time. Hopefully false pride’s sway over us may begin to lessen. Then maybe, we can truly encourage someone else, like our sons, and they can encourage others.
