2nd Tank Battalion’s Scout and TOW platoon MOUT up LANCE CPL. JOSHUA J. HINES 2nd Marine Division

The blazing sun rests high in a cloudless sky as a squad of Marines from Scout and TOW platoon, 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, slowly make their way through the quiet streets of a seemingly empty urban town. Suddenly, the sharp crackling of gunfire shatters the silence as rounds race toward the Marines. A Marine, yells, “Contact front!” and the squad races to take cover and return fire. This was the scene that unfolded as Marines from Scout and TOW platoon participated in the urban training package, run at the Military Operations on Urban Terrain town, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, June 21. The urban training package encompasses several days of training exercises meant to refresh the Marines on the basics of infantry tactics and urban warfare. The package covers tactics such as proper room-clearing procedures, maintaining control of a building after clearing it and patrolling techniques in a counterinsurgency environment. “This training is extremely important for the Marines,” said 1st Lt. Matthew Brooks, the platoon commander of Scout and TOW platoon. “There are a lot of urban areas in the environments we operate in worldwide, and these are diminishable skills that can be lost if you don’t maintain and continuously practice them.” Throughout the package, the squad leaders are evaluated on how they handle their squads, ready their teams and their performance under fire. “After each of the exercises, I debrief the Marines and go over the good and bad tactics used during the exercise,” said Brooks. “We then discuss how to fix or improve them.” The package is conducted using modified M-4 Carbines that fire 9 mm paint rounds to give the Marines a more realistic experience and help maintain a combat mindset. “The paint rounds give the exercises a new dynamic and the Marines a better understanding of urban warfare and appreciation of how easy it is to get hit,” said Staff Sgt. Zachary Strelke, the platoon sergeant with Scout and TOW platoon. “Rather than using blanks and imagining someone is firing at you, now they really are.” Many of the Marines have already had a large amount of urban training, but this urban training package has allowed them to use that training in a new setting. “So far the training is going well,” said Sgt. Timothy Borden, a section leader with Scout and TOW platoon. “We’ve already made leaps and bounds from when we first started, and the MOUT town set up is great for this training.”

gt. Maj. Michael P. Barrett, the 17th sergeant major of the Marine Corps, paid his first visit to the service members of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune during a tour throughout the Marine Corps’ East Coast installations, June 24. Barrett’s first stop on Camp Lejeune was a visit to the Wounded Warrior Battalion-East headquarters, where he met with wounded Marines and saw their day-to-day life. During his visit, Barrett spoke to the Marines like friends who have not seen each other in years. He asked them about their families, plans after the military, what colleges they wanted to attend and whatever else was on their mind. “We talked about the benefits exercise has on the minds and how it reduces symptoms of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder,” said

Chris Clark, a certified athletic trainer with the Warrior Athletic Reconditioning program of WWBN-East. “Studies have shown that it changes the brain chemistry by decreasing anxiety, depression and night terrors, so we showed him how we encourage the wounded warriors to exercise at least three times a week for an hour each time.” Following his tour of the barracks, Barrett was shown the new transition facility currently under construction near Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. He then joined the Marines for lunch at the naval hospital. Barrett’s final destination aboard Camp Lejeune before attending the Advanced Infantry Training Battalion’s change of command ceremony aboard Camp Geiger, was the theater where he spoke to more than 200 Marines. “I’ve already been asked countless times what I was inheriting by becoming the new sergeant major of the Marine Corps,” said Barrett. “I would tell them about Capt. Ademola Fabayo and Staff Sgt. Juan Rodriguez-Chavez, two


Marines who were recently awarded the Navy Cross at the Museum of the Marine Corps. Marine trainers and Afghan forces in the Kunar province, Afghanistan, were ambushed by 50 insurgents on three sides. Everyone went down, and multiple times these two Marines went in to help relieve pressure and each time grabbed a comrade-in-arms and took them out of there. So when I’m asked what I’m inheriting, I tell them ‘Absolutely fearless Marines.’” After a brief speech about how proud Barrett was of the Marines he represents, he took time to answer some questions from the crowd. One question that arose was regarding the new physical fitness test for women in the Marine Corps. In an e-mail circulating throughout the Marine Corps, it specified that women would be required to do a 70-second hang followed by six pull-ups to receive 100 points for that portion of the PFT. Barrett assured the Marines that the e-mail was not the final draft of the new PFT, but that it is never

too early to start preparing for whatever the new standards will be. Another topic that arose regarding females was the concept of placing them in combat. “The Department of Defense will make the final decision, but in my opinion I’m all for women in combat,” said Barrett. “In the 13 months I was deployed I saw them get into places men couldn’t and talk to females and elders. They have gotten behind a (M-249 squad automatic weapon), been first responders and served in female engagement teams.” Barrett also addressed the drawdown of Marines from 202,000 to 186,000 and stated that every day in the Marine Corps should be like a qualification day and a chance to improve oneself and stand above the rest. As the meeting drew to an end, Barrett reiterated how proud he was to be representing the Marines and that he would gladly serve another 30 years. “Every Marine is a national treasure,” said Barrett. “And we all need to look out for each other.”

Coalition forces operating in southern Helmand province, Afghanistan, as well as local nationals, will be able to continue to cross the Helmand River over the Darvishan Bridge while Afghan contractors conduct repairs on its east end. Marines with 7th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) placed a bridge over the damaged section of the Darvishan, June 16, located in the Garmsir District. “A few months ago an (improvised explosive device) went off here, weakening the east end of the bridge,” explained Sgt. Christopher M. A. Ivester, the bridge

master with 7th ESB, 2nd MLG (Fwd.). “After the blast the structure has been deteriorating really fast, making crossing the bridge unsafe for any vehicle.” The Darvishan is an important crossing point for the local population in the area connecting the surrounding villages on the east and west of the river, and coalition forces use it frequently as well. “This is just a temporary fix,” he added. “Our bridge will stay here while contractors fix the damaged area.” The continuous use of the Darvishan could cause more damage to the structure, making the repairs more complex and potentially stopping the traffic over it for an undetermined period of time.

Enjoy a safe Fourth of July With the Fourth of July holiday period this weekend, neighbors will be gathering, barbecues will be going, and fireworks will light the sky to celebrate our independence. It is important to take safety measures to avoid the bursts of purple and green turning into a red and white ambulance strobe. Although fireworks are a fun and exciting way to celebrate our nation’s freedom, they can also be harmful or even deadly if not used properly. According to, malfunction and careless use of fireworks result in nearly 10,000 injuries every year. More than 65 percent of all firework-related injuries occur during the month of July. Of those, more than half are to the hands, fingers, and eyes. The most common fireworks that cause injury are firecrackers, bottle rockets, Roman candles, fountains, and sparklers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and National Council on Fireworks Safety offer the following

fireworks safety tips and information: Only use fireworks outdoors. Read and follow all warnings and instructions before igniting fireworks. Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks. Ensure that spectators are out of the range of the fireworks. Only light fireworks outside on a smooth, flat surface away from the house and flammable materials. If drought conditions are present, avoid using fireworks altogether. Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned. Always have a bucket of water, or water hose, nearby. Alcohol and fireworks never mix. Parents should pay special attention to children using sparklers, which can cause serious injury if not handled correctly. Keep your distance from other people who are using sparklers or lighting their own fireworks; bystanders are more frequently injured by fireworks

than the people who are using them. Did you know lit sparklers can reach temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit? Be cautious to not catch clothes on fire or when using near children. If an injury occurs, stay calm. If your clothing catches on fire, lie on the ground, cover your face with your hands, and roll. If you get something in your eye from a fireworks explosion, don’t rub or rinse your eye. Have your friends or family take you to the emergency room immediately. For more information on firework safety visit: North Carolina prohibits the following for home-firework celebrations: Explosive or aerial fireworks, roman candles, and rockets or similar devices. As Marines, sailors and civil servants we live by our core values. So think before you jeopardize the safety of yourself, your fellow Marines, sailors, civilian employees or family members and remember, Semper Safe.

BaseLegal Base Legal By M.S. Archer

Early lease termination and the SCRA The Servicemember Civil Relief act is a Federal law that protects armed forces personnel from harm in their civil affairs due to military service. The Act addresses a wide variety of issues, including early termination of residential leases. An issue has recently arisen in this context: the signing of lease termination letters “by direction” of the commanding officer. The SCRA allows service members to terminate the lease upon receipt of orders to deploy, to execute a permanent change of station, or in the case of pre-service leases, order to active-duty service. Termination under the SCRA requires delivery to the landlord of (a) written notice to terminate the lease and (b) a copy of the orders giving rise to the right to terminate or a letter from the commanding officer verifying those orders. In many cases, such as when a unit deploys, individual orders are not issued. The military unit receives orders, and the member, as part of that unit, deploys with them. How then, does a service member present a copy of orders to the landlord that show he is required to deploy? This conundrum was resolved by an amendment to the SCRA allowing substitution of a letter from the commanding officer for a copy of the orders. The CO letter verifies the existence of the tenant’s orders to active duty, deployment, or PCSO. Specifically, the SCRA provides that the verification may be “any notification, certification, or verification from the servicemember’s commanding offi-

cer with respect to the servicemember’s current or future military duty status.” Upon presentation of the proper documents, the lease terminates 30 days after the next rental period is due. For example, if rent is paid on the 5th of each month and the tenant presents the required notice on April 1, the lease and the obligation to pay rent ends 30 days after the fifth of April. Additional information concerning lease termination is available at the Legal Assistance web page of Marine Corps Installations East Camp Lejeune, as well as in the “Take One” section of the N.C. State Bar committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel ( But what if the CO is not available to sign the verification letter? First of all, the letter must be genuine. Recently, landlords and property managers were provided with a single point of contact at the base housing office to confirm the legitimacy of suspect verification letters. Military regulations allow commanders to designate, in writing, a subordinate to sign documents and to take actions on the CO’s behalf. It is very common for commanders, especially at higher levels of command, to delegate authority in this manner. The authorization letter may, and often does, limit the range of issues on which the subordinate may act for the CO. When the subordinate uses such delegated authority to sign a document for the CO, the subordinate will sign his/her own name, after which will be the designation “by direction” or simply “by dir.”

Some landlords argue that verification letters signed by direction fail to comply with the lease termination requirements of the SCRA, since the statute says such letter shall be “from the servicemember’s commanding officer.” Tenants, of course, argue that letters signed by direction are sufficient. After all, such practices are clearly authorized under military regulations. Furthermore, it may not be practical for the CO, especially during the hectic period immediately preceding deployment, to be personally signing all of these letters. Nor does the SCRA specifically say that the letter must be “signed” by the CO. The SCRA itself does not address the issue, nor has this issue been addressed at any appellate court that I am aware of. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has long held that, in interpreting the SCRA “The Act should be read with an eye friendly to those who dropped their own affairs to answer their country’s call.” LeMaistre v Leffers 333 US 1,6 (1948). This language, in conjunction with military regulations concerning delegation of authority, and the language of the SCRA itself, strongly suggests that verification letters signed “by direction” comply with the SCRA. Nonetheless, unless you are eager to litigate this matter through the trial and appellate courts, it is the better practice by far to have the actual commanding officer sign the verification letter and therefore leave no doubt whatever as to its validity.

outside, stay in an air-conditioned facility. Reduce outdoor physical activity to lower the amount of air pollutants inhaled. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside. When smoke levels are high, keep indoor air clean by not smoking, vacuuming, or using anything that creates a flame, such as gas stoves or candles. Note: If you don’t have an air conditioner, staying inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in extremely hot weather. In these cases, seek alternative shelter. If you have asthma, other lung or heart disease, please follow your doctor’s advice about taking your medicines and following your asthma management plan. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. For more health-related information, contact Naval Hospital at 910-451-HELP (4357), and select option 2 to speak to the Nurse Advice Line. In extreme cases where smoke infiltrates buildings becoming an irritant to personnel, commanding officers may contact base facilities maintenance. Naval Hospital will assist upon request as appropriate. A Guide to Air Quality and Your Health The AQI is an index for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. The AQI focuses on health effects you may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air. EPA calculates the AQI for five major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: ground-level ozone, particle pollution (also known as particulate matter), carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. For each of these pollutants, EPA has established national air quality standards to protect public health. The purpose of the AQI is to help you understand what local air quality means to your health. The AQI is a guideline and does not trigger any required action (e.g. cessation of work) The AQI is divided into six categories. Each category corresponds to a different level of health concern: • “Good” AQI is 0 - 50. Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk. • “Moderate” AQI is 51 - 100. Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people. For example, people who are unusu-

AIR QUALITY INFORMATION Policy Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all personnel employed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Information in this document is provided to assist local leadership (commanding officers, officers in charge, and directors) to make decisions regarding personnel affected by poor air quality, to include active duty, civil servants, and contract personnel. Personnel experiencing health problems due to poor air quality should immediately make their condition known to their commanding officer, supervisor, or the base commanding officer. Background The North Carolina Division of Air Quality has issued a Health Notice for Coastal Regions of North Carolina as a result of wildfires in Dare and Pender counties. The smoke could cause unhealthy air quality in much of the coastal region of North Carolina and as far west as Raleigh, N.C. Air quality monitors, operated by North Carolina Division of Air Quality, have shown elevated particle pollution due to smoke from the fires. People who live in counties close to the fires, particularly sensitive groups (older adults, children, pregnant women, people who work or exercise outdoors, and those with heart and respiratory ailments such as asthma, bronchitis and emphysema), should limit their outdoor activities if they can see and smell heavy smoke. Currently, the Environmental Protection Agency Air Quality Index Values are high, symbolized as Code Purple (Very Unhealthy) for Dare, Duplin, Hyde and Onslow counties. Code Purple means that people who are sensitive to air pollution should avoid all physical activity outdoors. Additionally, sensitive groups should avoid or reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune will remain under normal working conditions. For those employees that suffer from preexisting respiratory or heart conditions, the commanding officer has implemented a liberal leave policy at the supervisor’s discretion and work conditions permitting. How to Protect Your Family from the Health Effects of Smoke Pay attention to local weather reports. Weather changes can rapidly increase smoke levels in your area. If it looks smoky

ally sensitive to ozone may experience respiratory symptoms. • “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” AQI is 101 - 150. Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air. . • “Unhealthy” AQI is 151 - 200. Everyone may begin to experience some adverse health effects, and members of the sensitive groups may experience more serious effects. • “Very Unhealthy” AQI is 201 - 300. This would trigger a health alert signifying that everyone may experience more serious health effects. • “Hazardous” AQI greater than 300. This would trigger a health warning of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected Air Quality – Dust Masks Smoke is a respiratory irritant that can cause scratchy throat, irritated eyes and nose, and can exacerbate conditions such as asthma, other chronic lung conditions, angina, or heart disease. Dust masks or “nuisance masks” are normally worn for comfort against nontoxic nuisance dusts during activities like mowing, gardening, sweeping, and dusting. Examples are an employee who has seasonal allergies may wear the dust mask for comfort when working outdoors or an employee may use the dust mask while sweeping a dusty floor. Dust masks filter large particulates, i.e., ash, pollen, sawdust, not irritant smoke. These masks provide no relief from smoke inhalation and, in some cases, may cause harm (e.g. labored breathing). Commanders/supervisors have been granted the authority by the base commander to suspend/limit outdoor activities should the air quality condition warrant. Eye wash stations are provided in some work areas for employee’s use to rinse their eyes should the irritant smoke cause stinging/burning sensations. For those employees that suffer from pre-existing respiratory or heart conditions, the base commander has implemented the liberal leave policy. For further information, contact the base safety office at 451-7449 or 451-5725, or refer to BO 6260.5B.

Motor T Marines overcome OC spray to complete course LANCE CPL. JOSHUA J. HINES 2nd Marine Division

Through tearing eyes, a runny nose and an uncontrollable cough, a motor transport Marine with Truck Company, Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, yells commands after taking a subject to the ground. “Turn away from my voice! Cross your ankles! Bring your palm to the small of your back!” Throughout the morning, Marines from Truck Company continued this scene as they underwent the Oleoresin Capsicum certification course held by the Military Police Company, Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C., June 21. OC, or pepper spray, is used as a non-lethal weapon to deescalate a situation rather than having to use deadly force. “OC spray is an inflammatory agent that cuts off the function of the tear ducts, forcing the eyes to shut. It also causes difficulty breathing, a runny nose and coughing with diminished effects lasting hours after

exposure. As MPs, we get trained on it, so we know how it feels and build confidence in our ability to use it,” stated Sgt. Roman Sena, the training chief for Military Police Company. The OC course is made up of five different stations that test the Marines’ ability to push through the pain of OC spray in a combat situation. The stations require Marines to subdue stationary and attacking role-players by using training-OC spray, batons and specific techniques known as mechanical advantage control holds. If the Marines fail to properly employ the different MACH techniques during a station, they must reset and try again. “We don’t tell them what they messed up, but force them to figure it out for themselves,” said Sena. “Under that level of OC, you’re not thinking - your face is burning, your eyes are slamming shut, snot’s going everywhere, but it’s important that they push the pain out of their minds and think about what they need to do.” Before undergoing the OC course, the Marines received a period of instruction where they learned

Following the instruction, the Marines were taught all of the different MACH techniques and takedowns they would be required to employ while under the effects of OC spray. “Without knowing the MACH techniques, the Marines couldn’t complete the course, so throughout the training we drilled the techniques constantly,” said Sena. Each of the Marines

who completed the course received a level-one certificate for their military records showing that they understand the fundamentals of the OC canister as well as how to employ it against someone in a combat situation. “I was very impressed with the Marines that ran the course,” said Sena. “They really did an awesome job pushing through the pain and every one of them made it through the course.”

Veteran Affairs offers several programs to aid veterans, families Veteran Affairs has a new program available to those that provide caregiver service to family veterans. Being a caregiver for someone can be an incredibly demanding job. The VA offers a number of services that can provide you the support that’s right for you. Whether you and the veteran you care for could use some help at home or you just need someone to listen, the VA has some answers for you. Requesting help is not always easy, especially if you are not sure what support would be best for your needs. VA has a caregiver support line at 1-855-260-3274, with assistance just a phone call away. I have called the line and the information specialist was cooperative and seemed very helpful. Whether you are in need of immediate assistance or have questions about services you may be eligible for, the professional who answers the support line can tell you about available assets, help you access services, connect you with a Caregiver Support Coordinator at a VA Medical Center near you, or just listen if that is what you need. The CSC provides a license a professional who can guide you through some of the challenges and provide some strength to a dedicated caregiver. This is a valuable asset for veterans and their family members. Some of the available assets the CSC can help with are Adult Day Health Care Centers, which is a safe and active environment with

constant supervision designed for veterans to get out of the home and participate in activities. It also gives the caregiver some down time which is essential to the welfare and health of the attending hero. The veteran will receive rehabilitation depending on their condition and needs. Most ADHCs are open during weekdays only, during normal business hours. Home-Based Primary Care is also available. This program is designed to deliver routine health care services to your home when the veteran you care for has issues which will restrict travel. HBPC is staffed with medical professionals who will come to your home. Some of the services are primary care and nursing, managing medications, and nutritional planning. Mental health, rehabilitation, and stress relief are services that can also be done with HBPC. Homemaker and Home Health Aide Program help to feed, bathe, and assist patients with personal care needs. Home Telehealth gives you access using telephones and computers from your home to answer questions or provide education and support. Respite Care can provide the caregiver that time needed to get away and recoup, which is essential to maintain health and wellness during this challenging time. I suggest caregivers of veterans go on the Internet to or call VA National Caregiver Support Line at 1-855260-3274.

Ballistic underwear make their way to Marines in Afghanistan CPL. MARCO MANCHA

2nd Marine Division (Forward)

Once you get past the humor of “ballistic underwear,” the threat it helps mitigate is real and the protection is necessary. The new ballistic underwear, which better protect against lifealtering injuries, is here and has already become a standard in proper protective equipment for almost every unit when they go outside any forward operating base in Afghanistan. Made of lightweight silk, the black pair of underwear that resembles bicycle shorts is in high demand throughout Afghanistan. The ultimate goal for the underwear is to better protect Marines from improvised explosive devices, the number one cause of American troop casual-

ties since the start of the war. According to Marine Corps Systems Command officials, “What the garment does is more wound mitigation.” The tier 1 ballistic underwear is manufactured from scientifically-tested ballistic silk material that provides an initial level of protection against the effects of IED blasts. The underpants are coated in an anti-microbial agent which protect against infections, and they come in a range of sizes, while the tier 2 protection is a unisex one-size-fits-all according to a report from BBC News. Both are washable, though forces will have to first remove the extra ballistic protection from inside the tier 2. The 2nd Marine Division (Forward) surgeon Cmdr. Sean Barbabella, said he believes the underwear is definitely a step in the right direction.

“I think it is a positive move, and the Marine Corps has pushed to get this taken care of and get research done,” added Barbabella. “You know, things might not get done as fast as you want initially, but it’s definitely moving down the road rapidly and ultimately saving lives.” Barbarella also mentioned the significant difference he’s seen with the patients he’s evaluated at Bastion Role III Medical Treatment Facility. “I’ve already seen a couple of the Marines that have come in where small fragments were actually stopped or caught up in the underwear,” said Barbabella. “The fragmentation that went through didn’t leave as much damage as if (the Marine) wasn’t Photo by Cpl. Marco Mancha wearing any at all.” Of the multiple functions of the A Marine with 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), sweeps the ground for improvised explosive devices.

Ladies of Comedy generate laughter at Camp Leatherneck PETTY OFFICER 1ST CLASS GINO FLORES II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)

More than 700 coalition service members escaped their daily routine and enjoyed an evening of cheers and laughter during the Morale, Welfare and Recreation event, Comics on Duty World Tour, Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, June 15. The comedians, Tom Foss and the Ladies of Comedy - Jodi Miller, Christina Pazsitsky and Sarah Tiana – made a day visit to Camp Leatherneck’s Wounded Warriors center before the evening performance, and seized the moment to share jokes, laughs and photo opportunities with service members there. “It feels warm and it feels great,�

said Sarah Tiana. “I feel like this is the greatest thing I can do for my country, being out here. This is my fifth time coming out here. I’m very proud of what they are doing and I want to do my part.� The comedians were not the only ones to get something out of the event. “This was the first time I have watched stand-up comedy live, and I enjoyed it and had a great time,� said Sgt. Warren Webber, the accounts non commissioned officer in charge with the comptroller department at Regional Command Southwest. “The Ladies of Comedy were hilarious, especially Christina Pazsitzky, who I’ve seen on the late night show ‘Chelsea Lately.’� Touring the region on behalf of the troops was an honor, said Jodi

Miller, although she added she has no plans to vacation here in the near future. A funny moment in the show came when Pazsitsky commented on her discovery and love for the energy drink Rip It, said Capt. Stacy Finn, an air officer with Marine Wing Support Squadron 272, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward). “Argh! I love Rip It! Rip It is for a person who likes the taste of cough syrup but also likes to be whacked out of their skull on crystal (methamphetamine),� said Pazsitzky during her skit on the energy drink. “This show was a lot of fun and I think everyone enjoyed it,� said Finn. Photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Gino Flores The laughs the comedians generComedian Jodi Miller entertains coalition troops ated here will be among the last on the current tour; the group is now with a high-energy performance at Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, June 15. scheduled to return to the U.S.


Camp Leatherneck opens new Wounded Warrior berthing area, combined aid station CPL. KATHERINE KELEHER II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)

IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, NAVY FEDERAL IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST CREDIT UNION WITH OVER 210 BRANCHES WORLDWIDE. Wherever duty takes you, you can be sure we’ll be there, too. With over 210 branches worldwide on or near military installations, 24/7 phone service, and online banking, we offer you accessibility and convenience like no one else can. So whether you’re at home or away, we’re there.


Service members observed the opening of the base’s new Wounded Warrior berthing area and Combined Aid Station, at Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, June 16 with Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan, commanding general of Regional Command Southwest, as the ribboncutting ceremony’s guest of honor. After more than three months of building, the more than 23,000-squarefoot facility is now open for patient care. “Today we commemorated the history between Navy medicine and the United States Marine Corps by renewing our commitment to taking care of our Marines and sailors the best we can,� said Navy Lt. Kevin Elwell, the Task Force Belleau Wood medical officer in charge of the CAS. Compared to the prior Wounded Warrior berthing area, which was held in tents, the new building provides wounded service members with a more feel-at-home type of living situation. “When it comes to the old Wounded Warrior area, this one is by far a better setting,� explained Petty Officer 3rd Class Terrell Camp, a corpsman with Task Force Belleau Wood. “There’s more space available for the guys to move around and feel comfortable. With these guys being in a wounded status, I feel it’s very important to provide top-ofthe-line services. “The ultimate goal of the Wounded Warrior facility is to provide comfortable, temporary lodging to help rehabilitate these heroes and get them back out

to their units where they belong,� he added. Navy medicine traditionally takes care of sailors and Marines, though the CAS aboard Camp Leatherneck is responsible for providing medical care to everyone on the installation. “Being a consolidated aid station, we’re also in charge of taking care of all the service members, and even civilians, aboard Camp Leatherneck,� added Elwell. “So, this also renews our commitment to the soldiers, sailors and airmen that are also aboard Camp Leatherneck.� The new medical facility has been built to serve as a permanent fixture for coalition services and offers a broader array of capabilities than the previous CAS. “The old combined aid station was located in tents, it ran off generator power, it had very limited and small exam spaces that weren’t well separated, so the patients that came through didn’t have a very good sense of privacy,� Elwell explained. The new facility expands the staff ’s ability to care for patients by giving them more rooms for patient privacy and a two bed trauma bay. Though the new facilities have only been open for a short period of time, those who have gone through are already grateful. “I’m very appreciative of this place,� said Cpl. John Weese, a scout sniper with 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, and a current member of the Wounded Warrior program. “It’s a lot nicer over here compared to the old place with tents,� he added. “It gives the guys here a better place to rest up and heal so they can get back out in the fight.�

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. BALLISTIC FROM 4A their ability to prevent fine sands and other small particles hurled up by the initial blast of an IED from lodging into exposed tissue and infecting wounds. If the Marine isn’t wearing them, it raises the chance of exposed wounds to become infected and leaves the femoral artery, located in the inner thighs, exposed. Injuries to the femoral artery can cause rapid blood loss and have proven to be fatal. Marines who have responsibilities that put them at a higher risk for blast injuries received tier 2 ballistic underwear, which has Kevlar sewn between the silky material around the inner thighs, colon, and groin area. Lance Cpl. Abdel Jibbou, works as the company clerk for the Headquarters and Support Company, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division (Fwd.). In his experience with the protective gear, Jibbou believes the underwear should be a part of everyone’s standard protective equipment when they leave the bases and outposts. “They’re a little bit heavier than your average underwear and thick, so during the heat they can get a little uncomfortable,” explained Jibbou. “The good thing about them is it’s better than nothing and I do feel safer wearing them on missions.” Like other ground units around Afghanistan, every Marine within 2nd CEB received at least one pair of the tier 1 ballistic underwear and some units received two pairs per Marine. More than 15,000 pairs have been distributed throughout the ground units and more have been ordered for immediate delivery, according to the supply section for 2nd Marine Division (Fwd.). While the tier 2 ballistic underwear are still being tested for standard issue by the Marine Corps, their goal is to have at least three pairs of tier 1 ballistic underwear per Marine who leave the FOB more often than others, and have at least one pair for the rest of the Marines who aren’t. “I’m just glad (the underwear) made its way here,” said Jibbou. “The kinds of dangers we face are real and if these things will help me in case I hit an IED, I’m wearing them.” DARVISHAN FROM 1A “It is a temporary solution for what could have been a permanently damaged bridge,” Ivester said. The bridge will directly benefit the Marines of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Fwd.) who are currently operating in the district in support of the International Security Assistance Force as well as the local population.


No security like Personal Security Detachment CPL. MARCO MANCHA

icture yourself in a foreign country full of sand, hot weather and insurgents who want nothing more than to take your life. Your job is to drive and patrol through this combat zone and protect a commanding officer as he conducts his daily duties. For the Personal Security Detachment of 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, it is their reality and they work diligently to ensure the best outcome possible of every mission the team executes. The PSD, who is in charge of escorting the battalion commander and other VIPs through the unit’s area of operations safely, hit an improvised explosive device within their first week in Afghanistan. PSD platoon commander, Sgt. Bryan A. Behan, said his Marines reacted to the situation like they’ve been doing it for years. “Three days after (2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment) left, my vehicle hit an improvised explosive device. Luckily, everything was good and nobody got hurt,” said Behan. “Everyone did what they had to do and our drills were down 100 percent. I was a little bit out of it and one of my Marines stepped up and finished the job. It was amazing.” He said what makes his team work so well together is that they come from all types of backgrounds and different parts of the unit. “It was basically, ‘Hey, every company has to give us five (Marines),’ so it was a very quick group,” explained Behan. “The group was different out of each company, and (no one) had worked together, so it was my job to make sure that happened.” It’s been four months since the PSD was formed and they’ve gone from a crawling phase to a full-on sprint, said Behan and his Marines. He said he has full confidence they will continue to do great things throughout their deployment. They’ve also quickly learned to work alongside the Afghan National Army and Afghan uniformed police. The Marines work, sleep and eat in the same patrol bases as the ANA and AUP. According to Behan, the relationship has grown to be a healthy one as they continue to work together. “We’ve been going out a lot with the

Brendon Bretz, a PSD Marine. “Our battalion commander checks on his Marines and sees how things are going and the ANA commander and AUP commander are doing the same things with their (troops).” After visiting more than 25 patrol bases and outposts, the Marines with the PSD have quickly learned several missions may be similar, but never the same. “One day we’ll be going to a patrol base out in the middle of nowhere, in hostile territory, to visit the Marines and the next thing you know we’ll be going to PB Jaker to have dinner with the (district governor) of Nawa,” mentioned Cpl. Benjamin Bracero, driver with the PSD. Whether it is riding in convoys, having dinner with the DG, or enjoying downtime on the forward operating base, the Marines say their favorite part about the deployment is the brotherhood they’ve built in the four months the PSD has been together. “I’d have to say that no matter where you go, the Marine Corps somehow molds everybody to be a really tight group,” said Behan. “I like to be able to depend on someone the same way they

would be able to depend on me and I have full confidence in every single one of these Marines when a situation becomes difficult.” The Marines have been able to complete every mission with success because of their fine teamwork. “Without us, the battalion commander wouldn’t be going out. He likes how we do things and (he) trusts us,” said Bretz. “If he couldn’t get out to the Marines, he wouldn’t be able to see firsthand how they’re doing and what they need. We are the ones who make that happen and will continue to make it happen until we go home.” The 1st Bn., 9th Marines is currently assigned to 2nd Marine Division (Forward). The division serves as the ground combat element of Regional Command Southwest and works in partnership with the Afghan National Security Forces and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations to secure the Afghan people, defeat insurgent forces, and enable ANSF assumption of security responsibilities within its area of operations in order to support the expansion of stability, development and legitimate governance.

! e d r a g n E Fencing teaches locals the finer points RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor

The Cape Fear Fencing Association is bringing a taste of the aristocratic lifestyle to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The CFFA, based out of Wilmington, N.C., has been hosting fencing class at the Area 4 Gym aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune for the past two years, teaching children and adults alike the sport once reserved for only the classiest and most white-

collar of aristocrats. “The thing about fencing now at the moment is … it’s really gaining popularity among kids,” said Greg Spahr, the class instructor from the CFFA. “Half the fencers in the U.S. are under the age of 16, so I think you’re going to start seeing a lot more fencing around and on TV because we’re starting to make some really good fencers.” Spahr knows a thing or two about the sport. He has been involved in it for nearly 35 years now, competing and coaching through his

career. He has finished as high as eighth in the country in his age division and has led John Hopkins University’s women’s fencing team to multiple National Intercollegiate Fencing Association titles during his tenure at the school, making John Hopkins the first Division III school to win a NIFA title. “(Fencing) had always been something that I wanted to do,” he said. “My senior year in college, the time opened up and I could take it SEE FENCING 7B

The incredible, versatile, extraordinary mole crab Onslow Offshore With Dr. Bogus

One of the great summer baits for all munchers and crunchers is the lowly mole crab, or sand flea. Although it is neither a flea nor related to the backyard subterranean ground mole, the sand flea is a wonderful bait. They are found along with the colorful coquina clams in the ocean surf swash, in an unending Sisyphian cycle of back and forth, up and down on the rise and fall of each wave. Their characteristic “Vs” in the retreating waves give them away. Mole crabs are easily gathered along the surf on the retreating wave either by hand, net or commercially available gathering scoops. They are, without a doubt, the best and one of the most versatile baits. You can hook small ones one or two at a time. Others like to cut the big ones in half so you get bait and chum all in one. You can even freeze them for winter or early spring fishing as they are or by parboiling them by dumping them in boiling water, then immediately draining and washing them off with cold water. One of the eternal questions is how do I find the elusive soft shell mole crabs? Here is one method to try. As a wave recedes from the sand, it leaves behind a glassy “sheen,” which in turn recedes to the ocean or it sinks into the sand. As it recedes/sinks into the sand, look along the shiny edge and try to find a round, dry area about

the size of a quarter, an area that dries out just before the edge of the sheen recedes around it. Dig where that spot was and you will find a molted softie sand flea. The best time to catch those softies is low tide. You can put the fleas into an open pail with damp sand in a cool location and most will stay alive overnight, which makes great bait for early morning surf fishing. It’s perfect for fishing on a Carolina rig or standard two-hook bottom rig, with No. 2 or No. 4 long shank hooks. They are also great bait for pompano, sea mullet, croakers, red drum, black drum, sheepshead, stripers, flounder and more. This time of year, it is indeed the favorite bait of big sea mullet. Speaking of the mullet, the sea mullet bite this year has been good. Another fish that is having a great season is the sheepshead, named for prominent broad incisor teeth resembling a sheep’s teeth. These fish aren’t heavily targeted by local anglers due to the sometimes irritating and finicky nature of these fish, as well as the finesse fishing technique they require for success. But the payoff is good. These fish are good fighters and make great table fare with their sweet flaky white fillets. The best baits include, of course, sand fleas, fiddler crabs and sea urchins. Most people fish the baits on Carolina rigs with a stiff rod and no-stretch

touchy-feely braided lines to feel the bite and get a quick firm, hook set. Most of these fish are found around structures. fou Some of the best places So to ffish are the Emerald Isle, Isl le Swansboro, Atlantic Beach and Morehead Bea bridges, the train trestle brid and, of course, the Moreand head port wall, espeh cially the southeast corner around the rock pile. There is no size limit for these fish, although smaller fish have no meat on them. But, keep in mind that the bag limit is 20 and they are included in “reef complex” fishes, where the total bag limit is 20. Check www.ncdmf. net for more details. The Spanish bite continues to be strong along the beach in 17 to 25 feet of water, particularly behind Shackleford Banks, over the artificial reefs and in the Beaufort Shipping Channel. The bite is normally best around daybreak, although there is a late afternoon bite as well. Make sure to use Clark Spoons, silver or gold (00, 0, 1-sizes), YoZuri Deep Divers or, if you want the big ones, nothing beats live small (three to four inch) pogies. And don’t forget the fluorocarbon leaders for these sharpeyed fish. Fishing for the king mackerel has been very slow, especially considering the abundance of menhaden along the beach, but has shown signs of life this week. There are some mid to upper teen kings over the Keypost Rocks and even a 43-pounder was caught off the Shaq at Rough Point. Offshore, there are dolphin from the 14-Buoy out to the 90-Foot Drop and even a few reported inside Charlie Buoy out of Bogue Inlet. Other offshore success include sailfish at the Rise (N 34 00 80, W 076 22 72) and the Hutton (N 34 39.461, W 76 48.434) is holding lots of amberjacks, along with cobia and barracuda. Amberjacks can be readily found over about any

structure both on our side of the Lookout Shoals and on the wrecks on the east side too. Bottom fishing has been good in about 135 feet of water. What about the cobia? There are still a few small keepers in the Turning Basin. Most have moved out, but fish are being landed within a few miles from the beach in places as close as 45-Minute Rock. Surf fishing has been slow and hasn’t been helped by the incessant wind and muddy and weedy water. Where the surf is clear, there are blues, and to a lesser degree Spanish and even a ladyfish or two around. In Emerald Isle, the far west point area has been the best. On the other hand, drum and flounder are few and far … you know where I’m going. The flounder bite still remains best on nearshore structures, reefs or rocks, many within two miles or less from the beach. There have also been some decent landings around the Morehead Port Turning Basin and the far south end of Radio Island. The inlets, beach and piers have had mostly throwbacks, although Bogue Pier and Oceanana both had a few keepers this past week. Inside, the fishing remains slow for trout, drum and flounder, although there are a few to be found in the Haystacks marshes. Pier fishing is turning into summer mode with a lot of variety to be caught, but the fishing can be slow. Fish to expect include flounder, sheepshead, spots, croakers, hogfish, sea mullet, blues and Spanish. Kings have been sparse both on Bogue Banks and Topsail piers, but there is some tarpon action at the piers. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show, heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on WTKF, 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page.

Who should start the MLB All-Star Game? Fielder leads the league in home runs, RBIs, extra base hits and intentional walks, the highest batting average of any first baseman not named Votto and is on his way to an MVP season.

Second Base: Brandon Phillips, Cincinnati Reds

Outspoken with Russell Varner Sports editor

With fan voting for the Major League Baseball All-Star game ending tonight at midnight, we have a pretty good idea who will be starting for the National and American League when Arizona hosts the 2011 All-Star Game July 12. This means that, in the AL, the majority of spots will be taken up by Yankees and Red Sox, regardless of how well they have actually played this year (like Russell Martin and Derek Jeter), and Placido Polanco is currently slated to start at an admittedly weak third base position (his closest competitor: Chipper Jones, who, as of Tuesday, was 1.2 million votes behind Polanco). The good news about fan voting is that fans get to see their favorite players in the All-Star Game. The bad news is that, many times, players who don’t deserve to be starting or even in the All-Star Game can be voted in, leaving someone who deserves the honor out in the cold. So who does deserve the honor of starting the All-Star Game? I’m glad you asked. Let’s take a look, starting with the host National League.

Phillips barely beats out Rickie Weeks. Both have excellent bats, but Phillips’ glove is what gives him the edge here.

Third Base: Chipper Jones, Atlanta Braves

Why not award Chipper a lifetime achievement start with such a weak corps of third basemen this year?

Shortstop: Jose Reyes, New York Mets

He is having a career year and is one of the most exciting players in the game right now.

Outfielders: Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers; Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers; Matt Holliday, St. Louis Cardinals

These three have easily been the best in the NL at their positions, though Lance Berkman and Jay Bruce also deserve looks here.

Starting Pitcher: Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies

This is no contest. If available, Halladay is a shoe-in to start the All-Star Game. He has a 10-3 record, a 2.40 earned run average and is third in the league in strikeouts as I write this. And now for your American League starters...

Catcher: Alex Aliva, Detroit Tigers

Catcher: Brian McCann, Atlanta Braves

The third-year catcher is currently first among AL catchers in batting average and RBIs and second in runs scored and home runs.

First Base: Prince Fielder, Milwaukee Brewers

Does everyone remember when Gonzalez and the Red Sox started the season 0-6 and all of Boston freaked

It’s hard to argue against him when he leads NL catchers in batting average, home runs and runs batted in.

First Base: Adrian Gonzalez, Boston Red Sox

out? Neither do they. Gonzalez is a big reason why.

Second Base: Robinson Cano, New York Yankees

Cano is having an “off year”, which means he is still hitting .290, leads AL second basemen and home runs and RBIs and is second in runs. A real off year there.

Third Base: Alex Rodriguez, New York Yankees

Some could consider A-Rod to be having an “off year” as well. What’s scary is when your “off year” is still good enough to land you a starting role at a loaded position.

Shortstop: Asdrubal Cabrera, Cleveland Indians

Cabrera has played a big role in the Indians’ surprising season and leads AL shortstops in runs, home runs, RBIs and stolen bases while hitting .295 and playing stellar defense.

Outfield: Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays; Curtis Granderson, New York Yankees; Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Red Sox

Bautista and Granderson should be locks for starting roles, which they fully deserve. I really tried to find a reason to not vote for Ellsbury, but it’s so hard to vote against someone batting .303 with 55 runs, 44 RBIs and 25 stolen bases

Designated Hitter: David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox

When was the last time someone other than Ortiz was named the starting DH for the AL? I doubt that will won’t change this year; not when Big Papi is leading all DHs in home runs and runs by a considerable margin.

Starting Pitcher: Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers

Is it plausible to think that someone who has won less than 17 wins only twice in his career and is on his way to a career year could be underrated? I feel that way with Verlander, who never seems to get as much credit as he deserves.

t all started in a small building no larger than a garage. Two years later, Team ONE, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s mixed martial arts team, is one of the most popular and quickest growing varsity sports offered on base, skyrocketing in popularity much like MMA did a few years ago. “(The) guys in my unit knew I (used) to fight and wanted to fight with me,” said Alan Boell, one of the team’s founders. “We started out in a small, garage-sized building and started practicing every night. (We) went and talked to (Marine Corps Community Serices) and Photos by Russell Varner they let us use the wrestling team’s gym.

The team of 22 has dominated almost every competition they have entered over the past year, regardless of type – Brazilian jujitsu, grappling or MMA fight . Three Marines made up the team that Team ONE sent to the Good Fight’s Maryland Championships last January. The trio did so well that the team earned a seventh place finish out of 53 teams.

David Porter (on top) launches some punches as he holds Josh Plato in a leg lock during a sparring session at the Area 5 Gym aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Monday. MMA FROM 3B MMA fights since last April. All five won their matches – some by decision, some by submission and one by a knockout just 47 seconds into the fight. “We’ve been doing a lot of grappling tournaments,” said Boell. “We’ve only had a few fighters go out and fight. (But,) they’ve all been really successful at the grappling matches. At the jujitsu tournaments, we’ve taken a couple of team trophies and have been doing really well overall. I have a lot of good, talented individuals out there.” The team and its club members – Marines and corpsmen who are not listed as official team members – practice every weekday at the Area 5 Gym aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune around lunchtime and from 5

to 7 p.m., working on everything from grappling and submissions to Brazilian jujitsu and fighting in a MMA cage. All that participants need to bring to classes are clothes that won’t fall off. The team’s staff is one of the most experienced in the area and does everything for free. The staff includes former and current MMA fighters and a purple belt in Brazilian jujitsu. “We take nothing away from (the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program). What we do is really enhance the skill level. You learn the basics of martial arts and learn more and more moves as they progress through the belts. We have all skill levels, from brand new guys to the top (performers) in martial arts. What we do is we try to comple-

ment the MCMAP program by teaching them things that they don’t know and tying everything together with standing and ground.” Now, as the team prepares for more tournaments and fights, they are looking to increase their reputation on base and take a place next to the AllMarine Boxing and Wrestling teams while continuing to grow and teach more students. “We want to move away from the ‘MCCS varsity sports’ (label),” said Porter, the staff ’s muay thai and kickboxing instructor. “We are grateful for what they have given us, but ultimately, we want to be on par with the USMC wrestling team and USMC boxing team. We want our team to go out and do these tournaments waving a huge Marine Corps banner and everyone knowing we’re there rather than going to a tournament with five guys, storming it nonetheless, but with a small presence. “What we want to do is be able to (field) an All-Marine MMA team and be able to teach other students (as well),” he added. “We want to involve all Marines and just have practices that are set aside for the all-Marine team.” For now though, the team is happy with the success they are experiencing both in the gym and in the ring.

two summers ago and to see where it is now, opens incredible possibilities of where the program could be in another two years. It is most likely that the team will not stray far from the basics that got them this far and has brought them so much success: to be humble and do it for the love of the sport, not for any personal gain. “It’s really hard to find a club out there that practices in mixed martial arts and doesn’t charge an arm and a leg,” said Boell. “It’s completely free (on base). All the instructors do it for free and donate their time to go out there, practice and teach the Marines something that we’re passionate about and help them develop themselves as a warrior overall, in both the Marine Corps and their personal life. That’s really the message we are trying to send – we do it all free of charge. We don’t get anything out of it besides self-satisfaction.” “It’s a free program and we are open to any Marine, regardless of rank,” added Porter. “It’s for everybody and we try to accommodate the hours. I’ll stay late. As long as they’re moving, I’ll stay here. I’m not in it for awards. It’s all volunteer time. I don’t care about getting an award. I’ve lived it.” For more information, contact Gunnery Sgt. Edward Raimo at 321-848-1406 or e-mail

Kinney (left) and Elia Fontecchio eye one another as Greg Spahr gives directions during a class at the Area 4 Gym aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Friday. FENCING FROM 1B as a P.E. credit. Two-thirds of the way through the class, they said, ‘We’re going to start a fencing team next semester.’ I tried out and made the team and have been with it off and on ever since.” The class itself is a part of an eight-week program that meets every Friday night. Throughout the course of the class, students learn everything from the history of the sport to more advanced attacking and defending techniques. In the first class, students learn about the history of the sport and how it has evolved into the modern game today. Last week, the students learned about one of three fencing weapons, the foil – a basic, dull blade – and the basic hitting and defending techniques, much to the delight of the participants. At the end of the eightweek session, Spahr will hold a competition between the students with electronic machines, allowing them to participate in an Olympicstyle exhibition. “I think it’s been fun today (since I) finally got to hit my son,” joked Kinney Fontecchio. “It’s good family therapy … Like Greg said, ‘The family that fences together stays together.’ I think overall, it’s (been) a lot of fun.”

Fontecchio is taking the course with her nine-yearold son, Elia, whom she says is a big fan of history and blades. Thus, fencing seemed like a natural fit for her child. “He was really enjoying it today,” she added. “He likes (General George) Patton a lot and Patton fenced. He (also) likes the Greeks and the Spartans … and he’s a boy.” And why did she decide to take part in the class? “I just wanted to do it with him,” she said. “It sounded like a lot of fun for both of us to do it together.” The CFFA currently has around 50 members, 14 of which qualified for the national championships last year. One member even took home fifth place in the age 10 and under division. Spahr said that he hopes this class will help bring more titles to the CFFA and more interest to

the sport he loves. “I’d like to get some kids up and competing,” he said. “One of the guys who started when we first came up here and were out in Jacksonville … actually qualified for the national championships this year. It would be good to have some of these youngsters competing and going out and doing well in tournaments.” The class provides locals with a unique opportunity to learn about a oncepopular sport enjoyed by some of the most powerful figures in world history in a one-on-one environment that is hard to find in most places. The class sizes usually range from four to six people, though Spahrs said that he has taught classes as large as 13 people before. “There are probably a bunch of fencers out there in the woodworks that

Coast Guard trains to combat terrorism SGT. THOMAS J. GRIFFITH

n temperatures exceeding 90 degrees Fahrenheit. In full gear, including flak jacket and Kevlar. In ports around the United States and overseas. The Coast Guard has law enforcement officials defending, searching, seizing and detaining. Before that, however, they must attend the Basic Tactical Operations Course at the Joint Maritime Training Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The Basic Tactical Operations Course primarily teaches students the fundamentals of marksmanship. In seven weeks, students fire thousands of rounds at flat ranges, houses, around barricades and at close range. “BTOC is the beginning for them to be able to carry out missions,” said Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer James Beard, the course chief. “They get a baseline for shooting and the fundamentals of marksmanship on the flat range and in closequarters combat.” The course is mandatory for Coast Guard personnel within the Deployable Specialized Forces community. Members of Maritime Safety and Security Teams, Law Enforcement Detachments, Tactical Law Enforcement Teams and Maritime Safety Response Teams attend to learn or refresh the skills necessary to perform as part of their teams. At those units, Coast Guardsmen conduct many special-assignment missions, such as anti-terrorism, anti-

piracy and drug interdiction operations. “The potential is there to use these skills in a real-life situation,” said Phill Hanson, lead close-quarters combat instructor and primary marksmanship instructor. “Since 9/11, the Coast Guard has been tasked with a counterterrorism and advanced-interdiction mission. These are skills (they need) to be proficient in to win those types of confrontations.” BTOC includes approximately three and a half weeks each for both flat-range shooting and close quarters combat training with a few classroom sessions interspersed throughout. Students are expected to learn, memorize and explain the nomenclature of their weapons, how to properly disassemble them and perform safety and functions checks. Students learn the basics of marksmanship with the MK-18, which is an M-4 with close-quarters battle receiver that’s four inches shorter than standard issue M-4s, Sig Sauer P229R DAK and Remington Model 870 pump-action riot shotgun. “We expect 100 percent participation — heart and soul,” said Beard. “It’s a prime opportunity for them and a time to focus. Similar to the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard places a lot of responsibility at the E-4 level. “They’ll have the skills and their teams will expect a certain level of safety and maturity,” he added. During the course, events get pretty intense. The students are constantly evaluated to make sure they are performing adequately, even off the range.

“It’s an aggressive shooting package and the staff has been overwhelmingly supportive,” said Chief Petty Officer Alvaro Vasquez, currently a student and formerly the course chief. Many of the students believe having the knowledge of the instructors at their fingertips is one of the best aspects of the course. All instructors have years of real-world experience serving within the Coast Guard Deployable Specialized Forces, Marine Force Recon, Navy SEALS and other special operations commands. “The best thing is definitely the knowledge of the instructors and the confidence in using the tactics in real-life situations,” said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Amber Martinez, who will be only the second female to complete the course. “It’s a little hard on the body, but it’s fun.” Even after a course is complete, the course instructors’ job is not done. In the two weeks between courses, the instructors put themselves through it to hone their craft and make changes where necessary. They conduct the same marksmanship drills but, due to time constraints, must complete them at much faster paces. Beard calls it unique, just like their branch of service. “It’s an ever-changing animal,” said Beard. “Each time is different as an assaulter identifies and makes splitsecond decisions on how to deal with threats. The fundamentals of close-quarters combat are speed, surprise and violence of action. We want them have a mindset to conduct the mission, not be overwhelmed and remain in control.”

Leadership Course brings together five MCJROTC schools CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Nearly every high school in the country falls under the jurisdiction of a local Marine Corps recruitment substation, which often recruits current junior or senior students into the Delayed Entry Program. The DEP allows these students to attend pre-boot camp training sessions at their respective RSSs, readying them for the challenge that lies ahead. However, this is not the only program offered to high school students in the way of Marine Corps preparation. Established in 1916, the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, as well as its college-level ROTC brother, came into being as part of the National Defense Act. The act authorized high

schools the option of loaning military equipment and the assignment of retired service members as instructors for any student participant who wanted to get a head start on a future military career, or simply those who want to become better citizens. As might be expected, Lejeune High School aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune has its own MCJROTC program, and in conjunction with four other Onslow County high school MCJROTC programs, these cadets underwent the 2011 Bulldog Leadership Course; a one-week training regimen aboard the base and satellite installations, June 18 through 24. “This program combines kids from both military and civilian families, mixing them up and instills strong morals in them,” said retired Master Gunnery Sgt. James Gardiner, Marine instructor for the

LHS MCJROTC. “It’s not about eventually joining the military, but enforces the Marine Corps lessons and builds their confidence and self-esteem.” Over the seven-day period, the 70 cadets experienced the wide range of Marine Corps culture, from observing such sections as the scout sniper school and the Military Working Police Dog kennels to participating in a physical fitness test and swim qualification. In addition to the physical side of the Marine Corps, the cadets also attended leadership and Marine Corps history classes as well as learning drill and the various Corps uniforms. This is also the first year in which cadets who previously underwent the leadership course came back and acted as cadres, or cadets who took the place where activeduty noncommissioned officers were once

in place as squad leaders. “If I had not joined, I would’ve been a socially-awkward kid in the back of the class, hesitant to voice my opinions,” said MCJROTC Capt. Nicholas Ciaccio, the cadet company commander for the five schools’ MCJROTC programs. “Here, the high schoolers are pushed physically, mentally and sometimes emotionally, making them better citizens in the end, and preparing those who aim to one day become a Marine.” The week’s events and classes culminated in a graduation ceremony at LHS, June 24, recognizing the cadets’ accomplishments and awarding trophies and medals to those who stood out among the rest in such areas as physical fitness and educational aptitude.

Base reaffirms commitment to high standards SGT. THOMAS J. GRIFFITH

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


s the summer heat settles in at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, no doubt many service members and their families will spend more time outdoors, whether for physical training or fun. July temperatures average more than 90 degrees, which can be unbearable at times. Yet, it is important to remember particular rules and regulations concerning appropriate attire for physical training. The base commanding officer, Col. Daniel J. Lecce, signed Policy Letter 03-11, June 22, reaffirming the base’s commitment to high standards. The policy addresses appropriate attire, the use of headsets and wearing reflective belts or vests while conducting physical training. “Many personnel simply are not following the rules

and, worse, many leaders are not enforcing the rules,” said Lecce, explaining the need for the policy letter. “Marines take pride in their discipline and appearance. They also take care of each other. This policy is intended to ensure the proper appearance and safety measures are enforced on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.” Parts of the policy are new, while others serve as reminders. One addition is the requirement to wear shirts during physical training, unless it is at the beach, training tank or pool. It has traditionally been enforced, but is now formalized. Tank tops, sleeveless shirts and women’s jog tops are only appropriate for physical training conducted outdoors. Due to safety and sanitation concerns, they are not permitted within Marine Corps Community Services facilities, including the commissary, bowling alley, library and any of the convenience stores or Marine Corps Exchanges. The policy letter echoes other base orders as it references the use of headsets and wearing reflective belts.

Headsets are only authorized on off-road running trails or closed roads, such as Julian C. Smith Road, which is closed in the mornings for physical training, Greenway Trail, and the running trail parallel to Holcomb Boulevard. Reflective belts or vests must be worn during physical training sessions prior to morning colors at 8 a.m. or after evening colors at sunset. All of the regulations apply to running and biking. Lecce stated that he hopes the policy letter will reinvigorate leaders to enforce standards, and that service members will use “common sense and accepted Marine Corps standards” when it comes to appropriate attire. “My hope is that we will tighten up,” said Lecce. “That we will start policing each other to ensure our appearance is appropriate and that we are safe. Marines are a breed apart. We hold ourselves to higher standards and take care of each other. It’s our ethos.” For more information on the policy, visit

Ghost hunters investigate USO PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

A team of ghost hunters with the South East Paranormal Investigators Association partook in a preliminary investigation at the Jacksonville USO, June 24. The purpose of the investigation was to try and capture evidence of any paranormal activity, which would be shown at the fundraiser investigation event with Sy Fy Channel’s Amy Bruni of Ghost Hunters, Sy Fy’s John and Chris Zaffis of Haunted Collector and Eric and Jessica Dionne of SEPIA, hosted by Ideal Event Management, scheduled for July 30. “This is the first time the USO has ever been investigated, and I’m excited to see what we can find,” said Jessica Dionne, a paranormal investigator with SEPIA. The SEPIA team arrived with gadgets such as voice recorders, cameras and infrared video cameras that were used

to monitor and record every second of the investigation. The investigators covered four hours of video and audio recording using four separate video cameras each. “We have 16 hours of footage that we have to review, and this preliminary investigation will give us a chance to catch something we can use during the presentation in July,” said Dionne. The investigation, scheduled for July 30, is open to anyone who wants a chance to try something most people only see on TV. Participants will be able to take photos, get autographs and talk to the stars from Sy Fy during the meet-and-greet, as well as a period for questions and answers. Participants will then breakup into groups to kick off the investigation, and at the end of the event everyone is free to peek around wherever they want. For more information on this event, visit or call, 413-478-3642.

Members of UpCycle4Hope, the USO of North Carolina and WalMart volunteers unload used and broken electronics donated by members of the community for “upcycling” Saturday, June 25, at the WalMart located on Yopp Road in Jacksonville, N.C. This was the first of many fundraising events that will be held throughout North Carolina in order to raise money to donate to the USO of North Carolina.

UpCycle4Hope raises money for USO CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN

y high noon on a sunny Saturday, a semi-truck was filled with seven full pallets of used and broken electronics donated by community members for “upcycling.” UpCycle4Hope, a non-profit organization that takes used or broken electronic devices and repairs them for resale, held a fundraising event Saturday, June 25, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wal-Mart on Yopp Road in Jacksonville, N.C. This was the first of many fundraising events that will be held throughout North Carolina in order to raise money to donate to the USO of North Carolina. The next upcycle fundraising event to be held in Jacksonville will be at the Wal-Mart located on Marine Boulevard, July 16, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Events will also be held in New Bern, Charlotte, Morehead City, Raleigh and Cherry Point. Upcycling is the process of convert-

ing useless products into useful ones, generating a second or even third life in an electronic device. While some electronics are at the end of their useful life, they can still be donated to UpCycle4Hope to be responsibly recycled or sold for parts at wholesale. Because of the introduction of iPhones, Android phones and the iPad, many of the older cell phones and devices just sitting in junk drawers can be upcycled for a second life to deserving homes. According to Rob Graham, event coordinator for UpCycle4Hope, the average U.S. home has $1,643 worth of dormant electronics, and electronic waste makes up only three percent of trash in landfills but is responsible for 70 percent of toxic waste. Due to a new North Carolina state law, which states televisions and computers must be recycled, the fundraising initiative couldn’t have come at a better time. “In addition to televisions and computers, we’re looking for cell phones, particularly phones with keyboards or touch screens, laptops and netbooks,

video game consoles and games, digital cameras and other lightweight devices,” said Graham. Volunteers from Wal-Mart, UpCycle4Hope and the USO took anything donators dropped off at the site, ranging from what looked like one of the first computers ever made to iPhones in mint condition. While UpCycle4Hope will accept items in virtually any condition, they do ask for discretion. The older and more damaged items will be worth less and take more effort to repair, and the intent is to raise as much money as possible for the USO of North Carolina. Certain items, such as anything created by Apple, have a much higher inherent value and therefore are much more likely to help meet the USO of North Carolina’s fundraising goals. Donations made at any of the upcycle fundraising events throughout North Carolina will help improve the quality of life for the 500,000 active, retired and reserve service members and their families.

Lt. Col. G. Russ Boyce, incoming commanding officer of the Advanced Infantry Training Battalion, School of Infantry-East, speaks to family, friends and attendees of the AITB change of command ceremony following the transfer of the colors aboard Camp Geiger, June 24. The AITB, established in 1996, houses approximately 20 different leadership and advanced infantry training courses designed to better prepare Marines for combat deployments.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


ts purpose: provide infantrymen with realistic and thorough training relevant to their occupational specialty. Its curriculum: such courses as the Combat Hunter Course and the Anti-Tank Missileman Leaders’ Course. Its name: the Advanced Infantry Training Battalion. It is this battalion which stood at attention before a ceremony held aboard Camp Geiger where Lt. Col. John Armellino relinquished command as commanding officer of AITB, School of Infantry-East, to Lt. Col. G. Russ Boyce, June 24. “This battalion and its 20 different programs of instruction have grown immensely over the past few years,” said Col. Timothy Mundy, commanding officer of the School of Infantry – East. “A lot of that growth has happened under the watchful eye of Armellino, and for someone so committed to the job, the Marine Corps will benefit from your time here for years to come.” Growing from the newborn Advanced Infantry Training Company after its formation in 1996, AITB has since schooled thousands of Marines in courses stressing the importance of combat leadership alongside the heightened training for specific 03XX

military occupational specialties. Although a relatively new battalion when placed next to other schools of its magnitude, AITB has since proved its worth in the Marines on the front lines today. For the past few years, Armellino has overseen the multitude of training courses in the AITB and used his leadership acumen to strengthen the battalion as much as he could. As such, he is reluctant to turn over his command, yet safe in the assurance that the battalion he leaves behind can only improve. “When you turn over the keys of your car, you want it to be to someone you trust,” said Armellino. “There is no other lieutenant colonel I am as confident in to turn command of AITB over to.” The reigns of AITB are left in good hands as Armellino continues down the path of his military career. Now, 15 years into its existence, the battalion will not slow down in its pursuit of stronger, better trained Marines, and Boyce will see to it that the AITB will uphold the level of excellence thousands of Marines have come to see from it. “They think alike and train individuals alike,” said Sgt. Maj. Kenneth Rademacher, sergeant major of AITB. “The transition between commanding officers will be seamless and the quality of trained Marines here will be just as good as ever.”

MCJROTC FROM 1C “The practical application these cadets can take away from this course are developed into life skills for whatever they may endeavor to do,” said retired Col. Joe Valore, senior Marine instructor for the LHS MCJROTC. “The aim is not recruitment. The aim is to make these high schoolers into better people.” As the cadets left either lauded with medals or trophies, they were equal in the reward that they made it through the week-long training regimen that many others of their age are alien to. As the five high schools’ cadets returned to their respective corners of Onslow County, they relished in the taste they received of the Marine Corps culture and reflected on how they, as growing young adults, bettered themselves in all character aspects.

ou get better looking with age, America. Citizens across the country will celebrate the nation’s 235th birthday this Fourth of July, and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune has tons of free, fun festivities for the entire family. As with most family-friendly events, there will be plenty of activities for the kids, including the always popular inflatables, and the naturalization ceremony. However, it’s the entertainment line-up that will have people talking about this year’s celebration. Country stars, the JaneDear girls, will headline the evening with their high-energy and tight harmonies, but the opening act may be a bit more familiar. Singer/songwriter Bobbie Allen is coming home. Allen grew up in a military family and knows the struggles, joys and everything in between that comes with it. She was happy to call MCB Camp Lejeune home not just once but twice growing up and credits the location as the founding place of her natural musical talent. “It feels amazing to come back to the place where the shape of my life changed the most,” Allen said. “I grew into a musician in Lejeune.” Spending hours researching her favorite artists and trying to pick their tunes on her guitar, she unknowingly taught herself chords. The experience was the beginning of her transformation from a music fan into a musician. “My love affair with music began as soon as I had the capability to hold memories,” she explained. “I just never thought I, myself, would be able to make music.” Her passion may be a genetic trait. According to Allen, her mother hand-carried their stereo system to every new duty station they moved to, and it was the first thing set up in their new homes. “That’s when life could begin,” Allen noted. “If we’d had a bad day at school, she would put on happy music and make us dance. Music was the fifth member of our family.” Her desire to create new music has only grown in time, and she just released her debut extended play with five original songs. Returning to her roots seemed like the right thing to do. “I am overjoyed to come home and play for the people that have given so much for our country,” she said. “To come back to a place that has so much meaning and a place I spent pivotal years of my life, it feels like a full circle moment and a long awaited homecoming.” Allen will perform at 5:30 p.m., followed by the naturalization ceremony, JaneDear girls, the 2nd Marine Division Band and, of course, fireworks, at the Fourth of July Celebration on W.P.T. Hill aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, Monday. No pets, alcohol, sparklers, or personal fireworks are allowed. Please allow extra time to clear the security checkpoint.

Penguins steal the show in ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Now playing in Jacksonville “THE GREEN LANTERN” (PG-13) “The Green Lantern” is an adaptation of a comic book character of the same name, a superhero with a magic ring. The popular Green Lantern comics date back to the 1940s, a beloved character in the DC Comic vault for decades, however not as well known outside the Comic-Con circles. The hero was re-invented in the 50s, when he receives a power ring from a crash-landed alien and is transported to the planet Oa, the ultimate source of the ring’s green energy. There, he is inducted into the intergalactic Green Lantern society and learns to harness the ring’s incredible power. Ryan Reynolds (“The Proposal,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) stars as Hal Jordan, a gifted and cocky test pilot who is recruited into an elite intergalactic police force. As the superhero crime fighter, a kind of interstellar cop, he dons a green suit and possesses a ring that gives him supernatural power. He is the first human to be inducted into the brotherhood of the Green Lantern Corps, a secretive group of warriors who are assigned to keep peace in the universe. Now, Jordan must earn their trust and protect the fate of planet Earth while confronting the super-villain Parallax, a new enemy that threatens to destroy

the balance of power in the universe. Peter Sarsgaard (“Knight and Day,” “Orphan”) co-stars as Hector Hammond, a telekinetic villain and biology professor who has infected himself with an evil alien presence. Blake Lively (“The Town,” “New York, I Love You”) plays Carol Ferris, a capable test pilot and hard-charging aerospace executive, who is Jordan’s love interest. Mark Strong (“Robin Hood”) portrays Sinestro, the tough leader of the Lantern Corps; Tim Robbins (“City of Ember”) is Senator Robert Hammond, the father of Hector; and Angela Bassett (“Jumping the Broom”) plays Dr. Amanda Waller, a former government agent. Michael Clarke Duncan (“The Green Mile”) can be heard as the Lantern trainer Kilowog; and Geoffrey Rush (“The King’s Speech”) appears briefly as Tomar-Re, Jordan’s fishfaced Lantern guide. Director Martin Campbell (“Edge of Darkness,” “Casino Royale,” “Golden Eye,” “The Legend of Zorro”) blends this eyepopping science-fiction adventure with the exciting action of his previous James Bond films. “The Green Lantern” is Hollywood’s newest superhero action adventure, the first in a planned trilogy. Filmed in 2D and 3D, one can choose how to see the characters flying through space and view the special effects driven

movie; however, this is strictly popcorn fluff. “MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS” (PG-13) “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is a modern update of the 1930s children’s tale about a business man whose world goes topsyturvy after some penguins come into his life. The story line is moved to present day New York where Mr. Popper finally begins to understand what he has been missing, thanks to a new inheritance of six penguins, courtesy of his estranged father. The flightless birds each have their own unique personality and are named accordingly: Captain, Nimrod, Stinky, Bitey, Loudy and Lovey, the Pepe Le Pew of Antarctica. To accommodate the penguins, and gain the love of his children, he turns his swanky New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland.

He is struggling to reconnect with his children and ex-wife, Amanda, played by Carla Gugino (“Sucker Punch,” Watchmen”). Madeline Carroll (“Astro Boy”) and Maxwell Perry Cotton (TV’s “Brothers and Sisters”) play Janie and Billy, the Popper children.

Focusing on what really matters

New to Me with Amy Binkley Carolina Living editor

I love Marines. Sailors aren’t so bad either. In my short tenure as a civilian working in a military environment, I have learned so much about the armed services as a whole. The discipline, determination and plain, old hard work put forth by this country’s volunteer fighting force, who few would dare to reckon with, both humbles and astonishes me. I have the honor of seeing Marines and sailors every day sacrifice so much to ensure citizens are safe and can sleep easy at night. That being said, I have a confession. I hate war. I understand its purpose. I know at times it is necessary. I am aware it is needed to help control the chaos consuming the rest of the world. But I still don’t like it. Don’t worry. I’m not one for starting riots or creating waves of opposition, but my reasons for my disdain of the fight may surprise you. Throughout my assignments and the opportunities I have to associate with

everyone from privates to generals, I have heard a constant theme about the Marine Corps – you are a family. Ideally, you stand by each others’ sides through thick o or tthin,, o on tthe battlefield or on the hom home front, ready to fight with or for your brothers-inbrothers-in-arms. No matt matter what cultural, socio-econo socio-economic or moral background you come from, you stand u united against a common enemy. My worry and concern comes after a year of witnessing the realities of war they don’t show on the big news channels and they don’t make Oscar awardwinning movies about. Ten years into a fight I do not see a quick ending to, I have been made aware of the advances the military has made in technology, logistics and basic know-how. You are on task and complete your mission with excellence. However, I wonder if, during the rapid increase in knowledge and the ever-increasing numbers of men and women deploying to foreign soil, we have forgotten that our service members aren’t just fighters, they’re people. They are husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and everything in between, and it would behoove us all to remember they are leading the heart of this war and the others that came before it. They signed up to protect

Medieval world unleashed at base library PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

A new journey begins at the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Ordinary boys and girls become knights and damsels, ladies and lads, and kings and queens. Dust is blown off books and stories filled with adventure and magic come to life with every page turned. The library launched the start of its annual summer reading program, A Midsummer Knight’s Read, with a medievalthemed event, free and open to authorized Department of Defense patrons, June 18. The town criers with Marine Corps Community Services announced the arrival of white horses, bringing knights who displayed their swordsmanship, clashing weapons and shields. The enchanting sounds of Celtic harps played through magical boxes called stereos, and the library offered games with prizes for children to enjoy. Patrons of all ages gathered to register for the SRP, as performers from Barony of Raven’s Cove, the Society of Creative Anachronism, entertained and educated readers about medieval history. The medieval re-enactors were there at the request of the library. “It’s just fun doing what we do,” said Dianna Fillpot, marketing assistant with MCCS and member of Barony of Raven’s Cove. “We talk about the clothes that we’re wearing and weapons and armor that we have displayed. It gives (everyone) a chance to learn a little history and have fun doing it. We’re happy to be able to provide entertainment for (everyone) attending the event.” Department of Defense libraries on 270 military installations launched the program with hopes of bringing back the book-

will lure readers to register for the program. The library is always looking for new ideas for events and programs, so patrons can have a fun outlet and support. “We’re here to provide great events and programs for service members and families,” said Jana Guitar, a programs supervisor library technician with Harriotte B. Smith Library, MCCS. “That’s why we’re here and it really is the heartbeat of this library. We want to promote and have programs that benefit the families, from children to parents.” The heroes with the base library seemed to have done well hosting the event, with all the smiles and laughs shared by everyone there. “There’s one child here that was dressed up like a knight,” said Guitar.

MATTERS FROM 3D their country, and with little complaint find themselves working a number of hours that would constitute major over-time in the civilian world. They are separated from their families for months on deployments. They stay at the office after hours to complete mountains of paperwork that cannot be ignored. They are drowning in responsibilities without uttering a peep because they know tasks must be accomplished to ensure success. Maj. Peter J. Munson, a Marine aviator and Middle East foreign area officer, recently wrote, “In this environment where everything is a priority, nothing is a priority, and life becomes a constant juggle of dropping one task to complete another.” Families carry each other’s burdens.

The Marine Corps does a lot with very little, and with no break in sight, perhaps it’s time to focus on what matters most. Yes, deployments must continue and the fight still rages on for good reason, and we are all thankful for it. However, encouraging Marines to spend time with their loved ones instead of pouring over notes that will still be in place the next day may be the key to keeping morale boosted when everything else is pushing it down. People have an innate desire to know not only are they good enough but that they are important, that their existence matters. Words of affirmation will go a long way. Service members who hide in the background during their four years would step up to the plate if they knew they were considered significant. Those who already go above and beyond wouldn’t be so

quick to leave when their time is up. A general acknowledgement of importance can change an entire perspective. I have seen the eyes of corporals light up when a colonel not only remembers their name but their story. When they are not just passed by as another set of cammies but rather recognized as a vital member of the family, the unit instantly becomes more cohesive. My opinion is simply that – mine. If service members and civilians alike would stop focusing on things that really don’t mean much, such as the proper pronunciation of Camp Lejeune, improvements would be seen across the board. It is the service members that matter. It is their heart, their passion and their perseverance that keeps our country not just safe, but great. I hate war, but I love our warriors.

Onslow County celebrates freedom, diversity at Juneteenth Festival CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


une 19, 1865, or Juneteenth, is known as the date in which Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger brought the news of the Emancipation Proclamation to Texas declaring slavery dead, even though President Abraham Lincoln issued the proclamation more than two years prior on Jan. 1, 1863. For the 10th annual Onslow County celebration of Juneteenth, community members gathered for a daylong extravaganza held from 2 to 9 p.m. at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center. The event was free and open to the public and included live music, dancing, an array of ethnic foods, children’s activities, arts and crafts and much more. The celebration of Juneteenth commemorates African-American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. The commemoration is a time of reflection, rejoicing, assessment, selfimprovement and for planning the future. At a banquet held June 17, Phillip Cherry, the director of the Onslow County Library, recounted the ending of the Civil War where Juneteenth originated. Cherry described the people and events that created Juneteenth, adding that textbooks portray the Civil War ending in a much more clean and concise way than it actually happened. “The ending was not as neat and tidy as all that,” he said. “It dragged out in a

series of surrenders and continuing skirmishes that allowed some confusion.” There were instances where slaveholders delayed telling slaves they were free or tried to keep slaves from finding out about emancipation, Cherry said. Juneteenth now is about much more than commemorating the freeing of the slaves, said Junie Christian, chairman of the planning committee for Friday’s and Saturday’s events. “So many people played a key role in that freedom – different nationalities, colors, backgrounds,” he said. “It is a celebration about what freedom has meant in America. We not only celebrate emancipation, we celebrate democracy, community and the ideal of what America has become in spite of our checkered past.” The Georgetown Renaissance Community Association also held a Juneteenth cemetery ceremony at the Old Georgetown Cemetery, from 3 to 5:30 p.m., June 19. The ceremony included the marching of the colors, ringing of the bell and calling out the names of the service members in the cemetery. “It’s important to introduce diversity and culture to our community,” said Cherry. “It’s an education initiative to teach history to all people.” Juneteenth’s growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America that is long overdue. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues
