Marines, sailors gain confidence during life-saving course LANCE CPL. RYAN JOYNER Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa
Ditching, ditching, ditching. The moment those wings hit the water, brace yourself, you’re going under. Water rushes up your nose and oxygen seeps away every second until you are submerged into total darkness. The fear may be too much for some, but for the Marines and sailors of Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa 13.3, preparation is key. SP-MAGTF Africa 13.3 recently completed a water egress trainer course at the Water Survival Training Facility June 3 through 4 to ensure personal safety for their upcoming deployment to Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy, this summer. The “Helo Dunker” is a life-saving course providing individuals with the confidence and knowledge to successfully and safely egress out of a helicopter that suffered a controlled landing. “It was great training on something that is not really brought up when flying, but could save our lives if there ever was a situation that a helicopter

Colombia native Marine becomes US citizen in Tripoli CPL. TIMOTHY NORRIS Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa
Sgt. Jeison Mendoza, a mortarman with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Africa, had a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a citizen of the United States while deployed to Tripoli, Libya, June 4. In the crowded cockpit of a KC-130J Super Hercules, the Palmira, Colombia, native who came to the U.S. while still in grade school raised his right hand and repeated the oath of allegiance. It was the first time the ceremony had been performed in Libya since at least World War II. “It feels like I reached one of the biggest goals of my life,” said Mendoza, now a Port Jefferson, N.Y., resident. “I wanted to feel and become a proud American.” A reserve Marine with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines out of Garden City, N.Y., Mendoza had both his citizenship and enlistment in the Marine Corps planned out years ago. “Since I was 12, I always admired the Marine Corps,” Mendoza said. “I was going to enlist when I turned 18 because I wanted to feel like a hero and make my mother proud.” “She was the one who brought me here when I was little and she wanted something better for me; becoming a U.S. citizen has opened more paths in my life.” The oath of allegiance is a once in a lifetime event for those who choose to become a U.S. citizen. In this case, the same can be said
for the one administering the oath. John Lafferty, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services district director for Africa, flew down with members of the Special-Purpose MAGTF Africa command to conduct the final interview, proctor a test on U.S. government and history and administer the oath of allegiance to Mendoza. “USCIS takes great pride in serving the members of the United States military,” Lafferty said. “We are prepared to go virtually anywhere in the world to provide this service.” Lafferty added that Mendoza’s interview and ceremony was the fastest he ever conducted, totaling 30 minutes. “As the son of a Marine, I considered it the ultimate honor to travel to Libya, surrounded by Sgt. Mendoza’s fellow Marines, and swear him in as a new U.S. citizen in Tripoli, a location that has such great significance in the history of the Corps.” Lafferty worked for USCIS for more than 18 years and this was his final oath of allegiance. “This ceremony on Libyan soil was an event I will always remember and cherish. To be able to provide some service to this young man, who came to Libya to protect his fellow Americans, even though he could not yet call himself a U.S. citizen, was truly humbling,” he said. Special-Purpose MAGTF Africa strengthens U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa and U.S. Africa Command’s ability to assist partner nations.

Marines from 2nd Intelligence Battalion, II Marine Expeditionary Force, completed a new course designed to prepare them for a deployment with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit early next year, at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. The detachment of 10 Marines was the first to participate in the two-week MEU Structures, Models, Approaches and Techniques class, which was created for basic MEU operations by 2nd Intelligence Battalion’s methods group. According to Chief Warrant Officer Kevin L. Navratil, 2nd Intelligence Battalion methods group officer-in-charge, intelligence Marines normally have no additional formal training prior to attaching to a MEU. “For intel battalions, MEUs have not been the priority,” said Navratil, who also taught and designed the MEU SMAT. “Our training models have been based on Iraq and Afghanistan, but now that we’re going back to the sea, we have to restructure our training for MEUs.” The course covers MEU operations, terminology, structuring and several practical application exercises. When developing the course, Navratil and another methods group Marine visited each of the Corps’ MEUs to determine what needed to be in the course. “There’s a very steep learning curve for our intel battalion Marines when they get to a MEU because they’ve never been taught about the MEU’s operations cycle,” said Navratil, who has experienced multiple MEU deployments. “That is the central theme of this entire course.” While the normal intelligence operations cycle covers a 24-hour period, the MEU’s cycle is only six hours. According to Navratil, an intelligence Marine’s biggest obstacle when attaching to a MEU from a battalion is adjusting to the change in time tables. SEE MEU 5A

Lawmakers are considering having one combat uniform for all branches of service. Below is Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Mike Barrett’s response; what is yours? Capitol Hill’s effort to require a common combat uniform still has a long way to go before it becomes law. Already, lawmakers anticipate pushback from the military — an early indication of which came from Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Mike Barrett, who told Marine Corps Times that Marines’ distinctive combat uniforms are a part of their identity. “There are tactical and psychological advantages unique to our [combat uniform] in terms of morale and culture,” Barrett said in a written statement. “Like our dress blues, the [combat uniform] is a visible indicator of our identity as United States Marines, globally! It’s part of our Corps’ identity. Where we walk or sail, people are safer — unless you screw with us!” Article by By RICK MAZE, ANDREW TILGHMAN & JAMES K. SANBORN, Staff writers www.marinecorpstimes.com/ article/20130610/NEWS07/306100018/ Lawmakers-make-new-push-single-combatuniform
I don’t think they should ever all have the same uniform. They are DIFFERENT branches for different reasons! Which means different uniforms to identify each branch with. Sarah Quinn
There wouldn’t be different branches if there wasn’t a reason so why would they all wear the same thing. Mandi Darnell Miller
It would definitely cause a drop in morale. Regardless R of which branch you are in, there is a pride that goes with that branch and looking like the other branches would take that pride away, hence lowering morale. Not a good idea at all. Gina Satrape
No way. Marines earn the right to wear Marine uniforms. Its the way its always been and will always be. Jon Bruce

26th MEU corpsmen save Djiboutian man CAPT. LUCAS BURKE
26th Marine Expeditionary Unit
U.S. Navy corpsmen assigned to Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Regiment, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, revived a young Djiboutian man on Arta Beach, Djibouti, recently. 26th MEU Marines and sailors conducting convoy operations were flagged down by local nationals to help with an apparent drowning victim. Two Navy corpsmen from Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, Chief Petty Officer Adrian Figueroa and Petty Officer 3rd Class James Haddenham, immediately assisted a young male victim who was unconscious and not breathing on Arta Beach. The corpsmen on the scene were able to resuscitate the young man and, with the help of French military medical personnel in the vicinity, immediately transport him to Arta City Hospital – where he was given a prognosis for recovery. Witnesses also said a female victim was still missing and in the water. The French military launched a search and rescue boat to find the missing female victim. Unfortunately, her body was not found until the next day. “The actions of our corpsmen on the beach were heroic and epitomize the phrase ‘no better friend’ that is often attributed to Marines,” said Col. Matthew G. St. Clair, 26th MEU commanding officer. “I am extremely proud of what they did to provide critical life-saving care to the local Djiboutian youth.” To maintain mission readiness, the 26th MEU is currently conducting unit and bilateral training ashore in Djibouti, where Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa is located at Camp Lemonnier. The 26th MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force forward-deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility aboard the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group serving as a sea-based, expeditionary crisis response force capable of conducting amphibious operations.
DUNKER FROM 1A ‘when’,” said Glenn LaMarque an Under Water Training Instructor. “Accidents will happen and you must be ready for when they do.” During the course, the Marines and Sailors learned about the proper techniques for a braced landing, how to utilize the emergency breathing device, and how to egress using the various emergency exits commonly found on helicopters. The Marines went through the dunker simulator five times, each time increasing the amount of equipment worn. They started out with no equipment and the use of their own lungs, then increased in difficulty to the use of a rifle, tactical vests, blacked out goggles and an emergency breathing device. The ability to conduct the exercise without sight builds muscle memory. The training provided is the safest and closest way of simulating an actual incident without actually crashing a helicopter, said Robert Pitchford, WSTF site manager. The staff was on stand-by ensuring the safety of each Marine and Sailor. At any moment if the trainee wanted to cease training, they were pulled out immediately, but sent right back in once more comfortable with the procedure. No one would leave untrained. “It was a great confidence builder,” said Cpl. William Shields, a combat engineer. “We had the preconceived notion that if we went down, we would not survive. However, now we have the knowledge of the egress options and familiarization with the gear to save our lives if we were ever in that situation.” During their upcoming deployment SP-MAGTF Africa 13.3 will conduct theater security cooperation, military-tomilitary engagements and provide support to crisis response if needed. With their new found training, they are now more prepared to face difficult situations.
When ground forces invade a country they do so with a limited amount of supplies. Re-supplying troops can be a herculean task, but prepositioning can alleviate and expedite the process. Service members from II Marine Expeditionary Force, in conjunction with sailors from Beach Master Unit Two, based at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va., conducted a Marine Prepositioning Force Exercise recently. For some service members, the exercise was a learning experience where they gained knowledge about the intricate details of MPF operations. For others, the exercise was a refresher course to ensure they were up to date on operating procedures. “What’s unique about this exercise is in addition to operating in conjunction with various Navy commands and the United States Naval Ship Dahl, we were able to exercise the full scope of MPF operations by training with elements of II MEF,” said Cmdr. Tony Defrias, the commanding officer of BMU-2. Prepositioning involves loading large naval ships with equipment and vehicles that ground forces might need in the future, then staging the ships in different regions around the globe. By prepositioning the ships, ground forces can be resupplied in a much shorter time frame than if the vehicles and equipment had to be sent from America. Before a ship can be unloaded, a group of individuals known as the Off-load Prep Party must go aboard and prepare the cargo. This involves checking fluids in vehicles, starting the engines, and a multitude of other tasks to ensure everything will be ready for ground forces. During the exercise, service members from II MEF were selected to act as the OPP. While the main body stayed ashore, the OPP

What exactly is VPP? Supply Marines keep Three letters mean changing ship routines running safety culture once and for all CPL. KYLE N. RUNNELS
NAT FAHY MCIEAST-MCB Camp Lejeune public affairs director
ou can’t miss those multicolored VPP signs all over Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. They’re everywhere — hanging at the theatre, above the entrance at the mini-mart and lighting up the electronic marquees. “VPP: Safety is everyone’s responsibility.” shouts one. “Get down with VPP.” urges another. But, what does it all mean? What exactly is VPP? Well, if you’ve heard BASF,—the chemical company with the tagline “We don’t make a lot of the products you buy, we make a lot of the products you buy better” then you essentially understand the Voluntary Protection Program and how it augments Camp Lejeune’s safety program. At the direction of the Commanding General, a core group of safety representatives from each of the departments aboard base continue collaborative efforts since November 2012 to integrate the tenets of VPP to enhance their respective safety programs. One of their first steps ensured all those who live and work aboard base are aware of the program, starting with catchy signs. Spearheaded by Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Chief of Staff Bill Meier and Chairperson Kelley Vandecoevering, the group meets monthly for accountability sessions to ensure VPP milestones are being met and to get additional direction. Representatives are
responsible for ensuring those employees within their department are familiar with the program and understand how VPP helps augment safety. “VPP is a management tool that allows managers to change the culture of their employees,” explained Vancoevering. “It’s a comprehensive way to ensure leaders are fully engaged with their employees, take their concerns to heart and improve their working environment.” She pointed to Logistics Command at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany as proof the VPP program works. She said leaders within LOGCOM did a complete job hazards analysis and implemented change based on their observations and employee feedback. “They started providing ergonomic chairs, better lighting and better equipment,” she explained. “Once employers showed employees they cared about their health and well-being, productivity went way up.” Vancoevering said there is good reason this program needs to get off the ground— especially during the current era of fiscal austerity. “Last year, we spent $10 million on worker’s compensation,” she said. “For every installation that has gotten certified with VPP, they have seen a 50 percent reduction in injuries at work.” She said the program needs to be in place for at least one year before Camp Lejeune can be certified and inspected. At a recent meeting of VPP operatives, Meier impressed upon the attendees the importance of the program and their role in ensuring it’s sustained for the long haul.
“Each of you has to make sure this survives and grows within your directorates,” he urged. “You can do a lot of things at the senior level, but at the end of the day, it means talking to every Marine and making sure the last guy on the fire truck whose responsible for putting everything away understands those expectations.” A little over halfway through the certification process, Vancoevering and her team are currently in the process of ensuring each department head has developed a VPP policy statement that is applicable to their workspace. “Safety has to drive everything we do,” she said. Base safety director Stan Dutko suggested offering incentives in the form of poker chips with the Camp Lejeune Safety Department’s logo. “If you notice someone is doing something safely other than on the job, recognize that person’s effort,” Dutko said. “Give them a chip as an on-the-spot recognition and allow that person to cash it in for a 59-minute early release from work.” Dutko added the base took an operational pause May 20-27 to refocus on safety prior to the summer season when most accidents tend to happen. Rest assured, VPP will be the hot topic of discussion at every safety brief, now and in the future, he said. For more information on how to implement VPP and any other safety programs, contact your department VPP representative or go to https://mcieast.intranet.usmc.mil and click on “VPP.”
26th Marine Expeditionary Unit
The highly expeditionary nature of a Marine Expeditionary Unit is an irreplaceable asset for the United States Marine Corps, but high mobility can come at a price: limited storage space, few replacement parts and the ever stalking Murphy’s Law, waiting for a chance to strike in the most inopportune moment. Fortunately, it is possible for the Marines of the 26th MEU to carry on with their daily routines and maintenance during their 2013 deployment because of the supply administrative specialists assigned to the S-4 Shop. This ‘day in the life of ’ feature is part of a series showcasing the different working aspects of the 26th MEU and how their efforts come together as a whole to make the unparalleled force operate. “MEU supply is primarily responsible for managing a budget of more than $10 million; accounting for over $500,000 worth of serialized principle end items; acquisition of high priority parts; and equipment, and asset tracking throughout the supply chain,” said Staff Sgt. Ryan J. Ardoin, a 26th MEU supply chief. “Additionally, supply is responsible for ensuring all armory assets are correctly listed on the Crane Small Arms Registry, all unit issue facility equipment is properly accounted for, and all mission essential repair parts throughout the MEU are on order with a valid status. The supply section also ensures all elements of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force receive the proper support they require.” Lance Cpl. Kenneth T. Mellan, a supply administrative specialist with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit command element explained nearly anything that could possibly be ordered has a National Stock Number. He said no two NSNs are the same. Even different sized flight suits have different NSNs. This number is used when ordering items through a specified military vendor. “If the [communications] shop needed helium for their observation balloons we would start out
by finding how much they need,” he said. “We then look to see if it has an NSN. If it has one it makes it easier to purchase that specific item. If they don’t have an NSN for an item needed, we go through outside vendors that tailor better for our specific needs. For instance, our flak patches. We can’t make those or order those through certain government agencies so we have to go through civilians.” With the seemingly unpredictable routes taken by the USS Kearsarge, keeping accountability on ordered equipment is combatted by one of the best ways to learn preventative measures, studying the past. “Being aboard ship does require innovative techniques for ordering and tracking assets,” said Ardoin. “To counter that problem, we analyzed the experiences of past MEUs and determined distributing our personnel across the CENTCOM area of operation provided the maximum ability to achieve our goals. As a result, we have expediters and acquisition specialists strategically located who provide essential support to the entire MEU. Furthermore, our supply officer and contracting officer rigorously travel to each training area to ensure demands are met and training goals are reached.” Another unavoidable difficulty for the supply Marines is crossing into different time zones while traveling in international waters. “I have to catch their time zone instead of ours to make sure I can get in contact with the vendors I need to,” said Cpl. Hanna S. Roberson, a supply administrative specialist with the 26th MEU. “If I didn’t get the equipment ordered nobody would have wire for field operations, paper to print on, or even TVs for briefs.” Proud of the hard work accomplished on a daily basis by his Marines, the supply chief left off with a message. “To sum it up, we pretty much have a hand or two in every aspect of logistical support provided to the MAGTF,” said Ardoin. “Our team is made up of absolute all-stars. There isn’t any room for junior varsity performance at this level.”

Marines with 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, fire into the G-10 impact area at a simulated target aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, June 4. The battalion worked with Battery E, 2nd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, as well as naval ships off the coast of Onslow Beach during their fire support exercise.
2nd Tank Bn fires into G-10 impact area, makes history at Camp Lejeune range LANCE CPL. SCOTT WHITING 2nd Marine Division
The tanks of 2nd Marine Division haven’t executed a live-fire exercise aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s main installation in nearly a decade. That all changed June 3 through 4, as 2nd Tank Battalion, performed a battalion-wide fire support exercise aboard base. June 3 also marks the first time tanks have fired into the G-10 impact area of MCB Camp Lejeune. Normally 2nd Tank Bn., uses range SR-10, located on the other side of New River off of Wilmington Highway. First Lt. Gentry Calhoun, the executive officer for Company B, 2nd Tank Bn., said the goal of the live-fire exercise was to learn how to control Photo by Lance Cpl. Scott Whiting multiple support elements.

Additionally, two ships off MEU FROM 1A “I’m very excited about the SMATs program and the great lengths to which 2nd Intel Battalion is going to ensure their Marines are optimally prepared for the rigors of the MEU,” said Maj. James G. Allen, 22nd MEU intelligence officer. According to Navratil, the MEU SMAT is also the only SMAT course in the Corps to use real-time, real-world intelligence for its practical application exercises, which prevents both the instructors and the students from knowing what to expect in the research portions of the course. When the instructors want to create a scenario the MEU would normally respond to, they artificially inflate the current situation in whichever country is being researched. “Scripted training is hit or miss based on how it’s written, but this, being tasked out and finding the information ourselves, is much more realistic,” said Pfc. Erik J. Gonzalez, 2nd Intelligence Battalion intelligence analyst. These practical exercises run students through one of several scenario types from each of the MEU’s mission sets. “In this way, when a scenario presents itself on the actual deployment, the Marines will have dealt with something similar,” said Navratil. “It’s a good cheat code,” said Lance Cpl. Jessica J. Newman, 2nd Intelligence Battalion topographical analyst. “Instead of being thrown to the wolves, we get a preview
of what we’ll be doing on the upcoming deployment.” After its third iteration, the course will be presented to the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity for approval. If the course is approved, it will be certified and intelligence battalions throughout the Corps will use this SMAT to train their Marines for MEU deployments. “The fact that 2nd Intel Battalion is providing this training up front removes a tremendous burden from the 22nd MEU intelligence section,” said Allen. “By enabling the detachment to come to us ready to support our operations cycle and the MEU mission sets, we as a shop will conglomerate and gel sooner and hit the ground running much faster than normal.” Allen added that the SMAT will leave the intelligence section more prepared for predeployment training, and will also provide the intelligence Marines with an opportunity to explore more advanced, sophisticated training sooner in the predeployment training cycle. “All of this will culminate in our section having the highest possible level of readiness to support real-world requirements once we are underway,” Allen concluded. If the MEU SMAT is certified, it could provide this benefit to each MEU, creating better trained and better prepared intelligence sections for their future deployments.
the coast of Onslow Beach provided naval gunfire support. Air support by fixed-winged and rotary-winged aircraft was also provided by aircrafts from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. 2nd Tank Bn. had fire-support teams tasked with controlling the efforts of supporting units. This allowed all parties involved to effectively engage the simulated enemy. “For example, (Company B) had to move two platoons of tanks to fill in a hole in our defense,” explained Calhoun. “You don’t want to maneuver any elements unless there is suppression covering their movement. We called for naval gunfire in conjunction with (Company A) calling in artillery in order to effectively move the tanks to their new battle positions.” The battalion performed missions like that throughout the two days of their live-fire training. “This is the first time in history a tank main gun has fired into the G-10
impact area,” Calhoun said. “That’s a big deal because (MCB) Camp Lejeune doesn’t have many live-fire training opportunities for tanks. Our only other range is SR-10. We do our semiannual gunnery training there, and it’s really our only chance to partake in a live-fire exercise at all.” He explained that taking the tanks to G-10 to calibrate all the working parts is more cost-effective, since the range is much closer than SR-10. “Now we don’t have to spend that money,” said Calhoun. “We can drive the tank 10 minutes to a much closer range and test everything there.” Calhoun is confident this successful field operation will open doors to future tank training on this side of New River. “Being allowed to fire (at the G-10 impact area) showed range control we can fire out here safely without any issues, and hopefully we’ll be able to utilize the range more often,” said Calhoun.

Marines remember Master Sgt. Pruitt PFC. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
Family, friends and fellow service members gathered at the base auditorium aboard Camp Johnson, a satellite installation of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, to celebrate the life of Master Sgt. Scott E. Pruitt, and remember his sacrifice, May 31. Pruitt, a financial management Marine for 18 years and instructor with the Marine Corps Combat Service Support Schools, was killed in action by enemy fire when his vehicle was struck by a roadside improvised explosive device, April 28, 2012. “Pruitt never stopped surprising me,” said retired Master Sgt. Ron Scott, one of Pruitt’s mentors. “I had a special bond with him. He grew from this young, wide-eyed kid to someone I called a brother.” Pruitt deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Nimroz province in 2012. “He not only wanted to deploy as a Marine,” said Lydia Hobson, Pruitt’s
mother. “But as a human being. He wanted to help the people and children over there. When he got to Afghanistan he asked me to send him crayons and coloring books for the children in the hospital because they didn’t have the things American children had. He was a great man.” It was his first deployment, said Hobson. He felt it was all he needed to do to complete his Marine Corps career. He volunteered to go on deployment to follow his junior Marines. Pruitt is survived by his two daughters, Jennifer and Jordyn and his fiancée, Trisha Lane. “Much of our relationship was a sacrifice,” said Lane. “But we did exactly what we had to do to make it work-because we loved each other.” Pruitt was recognized for his actions and awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart in recognition for his actions and sacrifice in during Operation Enduring Freedom. He was also recognized by the Marine Corps Combat Service Supports Schools’ “Wall of Heroes” where his memorial frame hangs now.

‘Timberwolf’ Marines sweep honors in Advanced Infantry Training CPL. MARCO MANCHA 2nd Marine Division
Communications have failed, ammunition is low and the only thing within a mile radius is incoming enemy. Ten pairs of eyes with rifles in hand look to you for direction to lead them into battle. What do you do? The Marines of 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, can rest assured their small unit leaders are more than capable of leading the “Timberwolves” into battle. Four Marines with the battalion recently attended courses with Advanced Infantry Training Battalion and graduated with honors, sweeping their respective courses across the board. The modest fighting men were all stunned when they heard the news. “I honestly felt surprised,” said Lance Cpl. George Lynch Jr., a squad leader with 1st Bn., 2nd Marines. “When I asked a lot of my peers why they chose me, they said, ‘Because you stepped up. You took control from day one, and you tried your hardest.’ It felt good knowing that all my hard work had paid off.” Each Marine chosen as an honor graduate was selected by a combined vote from their instructors and peers. Peer input during selection made the honor all the more meaningful, concluded Lynch. Lynch attended the Advanced Infantryman Course, designed to provide a Marine with the knowledge and skills required of a squad leader in an infantry rifle platoon. His fellow Marines with the battalion took honors in their own respective courses to include Advanced Assaultman Course, Advanced Mortarman Course and Advanced Machine Gunner Course. Each six-week course is split between 75 percent practical application and 25 percent classroom. The courses have a heavy focus on technical infantry skills such as land navigation, combat orders and employment of an infantry squad. The Marines’ decision making skills are also put
to the test during various field exercises where the young leaders must learn to adjust quickly to ever changing scenarios. One of the Marines set himself apart by going above and beyond the course curriculum during the Advanced Mortarman Course. “Because I’m a martial arts instructor, instead of going straight home after work, I took the guys who wanted to ‘belt-up’ and ran a brown and black belt course,” mentioned Cpl. David Hudson. Hudson went to the course with the basic fundamentals of his job. He left with a much greater confidence in leading his Marines. “I think this sets a good example, especially for the Marines in my squad,” added 28-yearold Hudson. “Hopefully they take more pride in knowing that I went to the school and came back graduating at the top of the class.” Cpl. Steven Hanson, a section leader with 1st Bn., 2nd Marines, who was honor graduate for the Advanced Assaultman Course, said that what he learned from the course enabled him to be a better Marine and leader. “I feel like I’m going to be a lot better at leading my Marines because during my past deployment, I knew my job , but not as well as I wanted to. Now that I hold that knowledge, I know my Marines will be more confident in following me and have more trust in me than before,” explained the 22-year-old Hanson. Hanson, along with the rest of the honor graduates, now carries the torch once held by their leaders. They carry it with pride knowing they reflect the high-quality of Marines that fight with the “Timberwolf Battalion.” Sgt. Maj. Robert Pullen, the sergeant major for 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, said he was proud of the actions of his Marines. “I’ve been in the battalion about 100 days now, but it’s a good introduction to the caliber of Marines we have in the battalion,” said Pullen. “To have four of our Marines graduate as honor grads at the schools, they shed a good light on the type of Marines we have. It shows how much dedication these Marines truly have.”
CTC-2 trains Marines with solar powered expeditionary classroom PFC. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
The Communication Training Center II aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune trained a class of 20 Marines in networking, computer and radio programming aboard base during a weeklong course, May 27 through 31. The Marines received their classes in a command and control tent powered by solar panels as opposed to in an ordinary classroom. “The classes have really refreshed my mind and reminded me of the things I’ve learned in my basic military occupational specialty school,” said Cpl. Melissa Sayaseng, a field radio operator with the 2nd Radio Battalion, II Marine Expeditionary Force. “Some of the radios are new to all of us, but the instructors are a big help to us. I’ve never touched some of this equipment.” The week-long course is conducted once a month by CTC-2 and was a refresher to the Marines, it also introduced them to new equipment they haven’t used in their original training. “Everything the instructors teach us is hands on,” said Lance Cpl. Matthew Martinez, a special intelligence system administrator with 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment. “If there’s something we don’t understand, the instructors will stop the class to make sure we get the help we need. They also offer oneon-one time. The solar panels powering the classrooms
were a new feature the students learned about. The solar panels are photovoltaic systems used to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications. Photovoltaic means the production of electric current at the junction of two substances exposed to light. The Marine Corps hopes to start using the panels in tactical situations also, said Capt. Daniel P. Chamberlin, the director of CTC-2. “We want to get as much expeditionary training as we can for the Marines here,” said Chamberlin. “Giving this training to the Marines is a big success, we’re saving funding for the Marine Corps, and we’re allowing the Marines to stay local with this training.” The Communications Training Center has been using the solar panels for six months, using it as a main source of power for the classroom. “It really broadens the Marines’ outlook,” said Chamberlin. “We’re trying to show the Marines all of the different powering options they have, in garrison or out in country. Gunnery Sgt. Brian Stetto, Todd Jesson and Scott Mastranunzio, all instructors for the CTC-2, give the Marines the majority of the training. The Marines and civilians designed the course to refresh the minds of the Marines, but the circumstances it’s given in, make it unique. The solar panels will change how the Marine Corps operates in the future because the panels will charge the expeditionary equipment in a more efficient way.

Family bonds build character CHANTEL GREEN Sports editor

Sam Herzberg pulls back the string of his bow as he takes aim at the bull’s eye at McIntyre-Parks Recreational Shooting Complex aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 8. Herzberg’s father, Paul, assisted his son in executing the shot with accuracy at the Outdoor Adventures event.
Layout by Becca Keller
With a swift pull of the bow and whipping sound of an arrow flying through the humid air, Outdoor Adventures’ Parent and Child Archery began June 8 at McIntyre-Parks Recreational Shooting Complex aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. As an Outdoor Adventures Recreation Assistant, Chadwick Wells, instructs all archery classes offered by the program, and used his expertise in the sport to assist children and parents in perfecting their technique. Wells was hands on in coaching both the adult and youth archers, and before long all participants began hitting the targets constructed from hay bales. When a left-handed participant experienced trouble with his bow, a McIntyre staff member and Wells quickly assisted him in utilizing a bow built specifically for lefties. The experience allowed a day of bonding between children and their parents, fulfilling one of Outdoor Adventures’ many goals in serving the MCB Camp Lejeune community. The program consistently develops events to teach new trades and bring families together. The basics of the class focused around posture and stance. Wells teaches the importance in using lat muscles, deltoids, shoulders and traps. “Archery is all upper body,” said Wells. After mastering the symmetry of a proper stance, the participants seemingly hit the targets with ease. Wells said the sport is very hard to forget after mastering the basics. The children looked not only to Wells, but also to their parents for guidance. Youth participant, Sam Herzberg, relied on the instruction of his well-
seasoned father as he pulled back the string of the bow. As a few adjustments were made before each shot, Sam progressed, hitting the target accurately and with great frequency. His face lit up, smiling from ear to ear when he secured a great shot. Prior to each pull, he looked to his father for reassurance, asking if he was doing it correctly. Wells often described the archery as more of an art form than sport. Its estimated 25,000 years of evolving throughout history provides solid grounds for Wells’ claim, as the bow and arrow were used as a means of hunting and then warfare, far before the evolving into a popular sport. The day on the range offered a chance to strengthen a parent’s relationship with their child, but Outdoor Adventures was spot on when developing the program because studies have proven a parent’s positive involvement in their child’s sporting venture can aid in developing essential aspects of character such as motivation, high self-esteem, social skills and dedication. Wells continuously commanded, “Archers, retrieve your arrows.” Each retrieval brought the day’s end closer. As the parents leaned close to the youth, helping to propel their arrows toward the targets, the bond between each of them was undeniable. As the day came to a close, archers young and old disassembled and cleaned up their gear, hanging their bows to mark the end of the day. Parent and Child Archery was a day filled with sunshine and success, and also a Saturday to remember for all participants, as it brought parents and children even closer than before.

Angling despite Andrea
Successful fishing following tropical storm
Over the weekend, Tropical Storm Andrea increased the surf, and the cobia fishing season began winding down. Despite the season’s close, cobia fish still lingered this weekend, but were substantially smaller than weeks prior. Most of them have spawned out, and started to move away from the coastal waters. Andrea brought in more red and black drum, slot, sea mullet and small amounts of ladyfish. The water started to clear after the storm subsided, so the pompano should return with their previously frequent bites. Various lures were used to hook fish this weekend, but the red drum
was dominated by Kastmasters. On the other hand, black drum, sea mullet and pompano favor the sand fleas throughout this fishing season. In turn, the most successful anglers benefitted from a natural presentation of the bait. Sea bass season opened June 1, and increased pressure from anglers will bring increased catches as the bass move out of the low hanging branches and reefs. The activity near the beach revolved around hoping for Spanish and blues, or jigging for flounder. A few decent flounder catches remain around artificial reefs, but many fishermen found more luck off shore. AR-330 and Southeast Bottoms became the best options, along with Northwest Places further off the coast. Those looking for a challenge further offshore found a hard pull when they hooked amberjacks. These fish swam as close as AR330 and the Hutton, but can be caught around nearly all wreck sites. Inside fishing included numerous sheepsheads, hooked by fiddler crabs, live shrimp and sea urchins off most bridges and docks. Also biting at the new arrival of small shrimp, speckled trout
remain in the Newport River and Core Creek, with some landed around the Atlantic Beach Causeway Bridge. Bogue Pier suffered a slow period after Andrea, but quickly recovered with catches of pups, sea mullet, black drum, Spanish mackerel, Hatteras blues, flounder and a few spots. In addition, anglers spotted a tarpon off the pier last week. Oceanana Pier fared better through the storm, and reported bites from sea mullet, spots, blues, Spanish mackerel and black drum. Seaview also reported the same, adding flounder and sheepshead to their list. Surf City and Jolly Roger Piers both experienced a good week, landing many sea mullet, spots, speckled trout, red drum and cobia. The Big Rock Tournament is in full swing, with fisherman reeling in billfish in the women’s angler tournament over the weekend. The weekend wrapped up a few days of great fishing, and with expected sunshine beginning June 15, the luck will continue.

Tuesday marked the 100th birthday of arguably the best football coach to ever touch the turf. Vince Lombardi’s impact on the game of football cannot be denied. Only one fact is needed to illustrate his irrefutable influence, and it centers on football’s holy ground. The massive trophy which towers over the champions of the Super Bowl, supported by a teammate’s outstretched arm, the treasured, sterling silver football kissed by oversized men in shoulder pads, a 23-inch figure which anoints the best team on the gridiron – that statue bears Lombardi’s namesake. The coach led many teams to success, but he’s best known for his career with the Green Bay Packers. At their home stadium fans find a bronze statue towering over them at three times Lombardi’s actual height. In the minds of many Packers fans, Lombardi still reigns over Lambeau Field. Sure, he made a name for himself at Green Bay, but he worked
his way up to the top through coaching at the high school and college level, before entering the professional world with the New York Giants. A lesser-known, Lombardi fact is the military community greatly influenced his celebrated coaching style. From 1949 to 1953, he served as assistant coach to West Point marvel, Earl Blaik, an officer in the United States Army. Under Blaik, Lombardi developed an approach based on his already disciplined religion, combined with Blaik’s strict, military discipline and execution, which all became trademarks of his coaching. Lombardi was seen as unique, because coaching football was in fact a small part of his big picture. His deep seeded faith allowed him a softer side, which many football coaches didn’t possess. Lombardi’s words became popular and remain in the minds of many today, but perhaps their rise to fame was caused by the life
lessons woven into simple words about football. “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor,” said Lombardi while serving as coach to the Packers. Since creating his unique Lombardi legend, coaches have attempted to follow his lead. Many have walked in his footsteps, but none have matched the mark made by the renowned Vince Lombardi. So here’s to you, coach. Although you left the gridiron of life nearly 43 years ago, your legacy lives on in the hearts of football fans, coaches and players across the world.

Hundreds kayak in support of wounded warriors CHANTEL GREEN Sports editor
American flags flew high with pride, laughter filled the air and appreciation for wounded service members flowed through people’s hearts. The showers brought along by Tropical Storm Andrea ceased and made way for rays of sunshine, heat and picturesque conditions for a day on the water. Never ending rows of brightly colored boats lined the water surrounding Garner Park, while their captains eagerly awaited the upcoming paddle toward the finish line. Hope for the Warriors successfully hosted their signature kayak and paddleboard race at the sixth Kayak for the Warriors event in Pine Knoll Shores, N.C., June 8. The organization strives to better the lives of wounded service members and their families. Staff Sgt. Johnathan Rose was injured in Afghanistan in 2010, and suffered from vision loss, a multitude of broken bones and extensive burns. Hope for the Warriors played an instrumental role in his recovery, and their events are an important part of his life. “These events allow service members to interact others who are wounded,” said Rose, emphasizing the importance of networking with people experiencing the same struggles. Prior to the main event, some supporters chose to participate in either the 5K or 10K bicycle ride. In addition, the Family Fun Race allowed families to compete in any paddle-worthy vessel.

Garner Park quickly became flooded with supporters, including service members, veterans and civilians. Participants gathered to carry their boats toward shore, preparing for the 3.2-mile route along the banks of Pine Knoll Shores. Anticipation rose minutes before the race, and even more kayaks filled the water. The cannon sounded to mark the start of the race, and the paddlers propelled toward the finish line. Spectators crowded the shores to cheer on the kayakers throughout their journey, while some rushed toward a bridge to provide encouragement to the competitors as they finished the first half of the race. Wounded service member, Sgt. Rachel Brokaw, put the focus on organizations like Hope for the Warriors, which support wounded warriors and their families. She expressed the insignificance of the competition aspect, but emphasized the importance of supporting such organizations – in her mind, winning simply didn’t matter. During the race, it seemed competitors put all their energy toward their focus on the finish line, but their post-race attitudes differed greatly, as they expressed their gratitude for service members.

Marine beats breast cancer, competes in Hard Corps CHANTEL GREEN Sports editor
There is an evil among us – a ruthless predator has disrupted and claimed an alarming amount of lives. Although both males and females are susceptible, the risk to women climbs higher each year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 211,731 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Among the thousands, Melissa Wright, a Marine, also faced the diagnosis. In 2009, Wright lived a seemingly idyllic life as a wife and step-mother with a successful career. Joining the Marine Corps in 1997, many years spent with a strong group of people equipped Wright to adapt and overcome any situation thrown her way, but nothing prepared her for the interruption which left her fighting for her life. She never saw it coming. While deployed to Afghanistan in 2008, Wright noticed a small lump in her breast during a self examination, but by the start of 2009, the lump had grown significantly. A doctor’s visit confirmed her greatest fear – breast cancer. Wright was only 32 at the time. As she discussed her diagnosis, giving up never came into play. Until prompted, she never spoke of her struggle with the unforgiving disease. As she explained chemotherapy treatments, she even joked about losing her hair. On a particularly exhausting day of dealing with an unnerving junior Marine, she told him she wanted to pull her hair out.
“I pulled hair from my head, and it actually came out. He turned ghost white with a priceless look on his face – it was so funny,” said Wright. Conquering chemotherapy was no small feat, but Wright prevailed with unwavering strength. However, starting radiation as the next step toward recovery marked the beginning of an emotional battle against insecurity. “The radiation left me badly burned, and at one point unable to work. Eventually, the skin turned black and fell off the right side of my body,” said Wright. She was unstoppable. No force could prevent her from living life, and the drive paid off with acceptance into the Marine Corps’ graduate law program in Quantico, Va. She soon overcame radiation with grace and went on to the next step in defeating cancer. The word mastectomy derives from the Greek words for breast and removal. For many women, breasts define their sexuality and femininity, and each year thousands of women undergo procedures to perfect them. Removing one or both breasts from a woman’s body can conjure unimaginable insecurities, and Wright was no exception. After struggling through radiation, her body went through a traumatic mastectomy, leaving behind scars to remind her of the toll cancer took on her life, as if she could ever forget. Even after reconstructive surgery, Wright’s dissatisfaction with her body remained. Throughout her efforts to overcome breast cancer, the once
impeccably fit Marine gained 20-pounds. She won’t deny a d period of near depression and d. self-pity, but it was short-lived. Then, there came the momentt n. she put a stop to victimization. he “My moment came with the ps news of the 2014 Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test policy, st in which female Marines must perform real pull-ups, just likee the men. “When my supportive hus-band bought a real pull-up barr for the house, I tested myself and realized I was extremely out of shape,” said Wright. In that moment, she made the decision to train for the ldHard Corps Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Competition aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, June 1. For 12 weeks Wright ate rkclean, followed a rigorous workugh out regime and powered through all challenges. On June 1, she walked across the stage of thee Base Theater alongside other contestants. By the looks of her, no stranger in the audience imagined the difficulties of Wright’s past four years. Aside from family, Wright knows her success was made possible by the Marine Corps. She believes the Marine Corps continues to do more for her than she thought possible, and with this competition, she wanted to honor thee organization. “I was finally able to give back to the Marine Corps for all it’s done for me since my start. I feel like I accomplished my goal,” said Wright. In addition, she wants to help anyone who needs it, and
will assist anyone willing to put forth the effort to change their life. “It starts with you. You can’t sit around waiting for fitness to happen to you, you have to go out and get it,” said Wright. Reflecting on the journey, she’s left without any regrets. Wright knows the beauty within her struggle, and without it wouldn’t be the woman she is today.

Sports medicine pushes prevention CHANTEL GREEN Sports editor
Tucked away on Olive Street aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune sits a place filled with continuous movement. This building is home to the Sports Medicine Clinic, where staff members hastily shift around in attempts to help as many people as possible – after all, injuries don’t take breaks. “The most important aspect of the job is immediate, quality care for Marines and sailors to reduce their time spent away from work. “Our goal is returning the service member to their unit promptly and safely,” said certified athletic trainer, Wendi Lawson. More than a dozen Marines and sailors filled the clinic June 1, and a line of others formed down a narrow hallway. Considering the sports medicine program operates in four separate locations, the main side was packed. Lawson said the hot, humid morning was calm compared to their usual crowd. For many, these clinics are an untapped resource which could provide long-term benefits if used. The program boasts three sports medicine doctors, eight athletic trainers and a physical therapist serving under the sports medicine department head, Cmdr. Earl Frantz. All offered services come with the convenience of an open access clinic, meaning no referrals are needed. The push for prevention becomes
stronger each year because most injuries seen in the clinic could have been avoided with the proper precautions. The staff members strive to prevent as many injuries as possible so the service members can perform their duties as ordered. “Prevention is very important because the Marines and sailors are not out of work and able to deploy if they’re not injured,” said Lawson. The doctors and trainers at the clinic teach various methods for averting injuries to service members including cross training, increased flexibility, core strength and proper rest. “Most of the injuries we see are due to overuse from their gear, patrolling, humping a pack, running or weight lifting. Too much of anything can lead to injury,” said certified athletic trainer, Hannah Wojcik. The group works outside of normal business hours in an attempt to better assist service members. The clinic opens at 5:30 a.m., and the last service member is seen at 2 p.m. for their rehabilitation. The team makes every effort to work around the schedules of service members, and, when requested, they will leave the clinic to discuss prevention topics with entire units. Due to the increased need for injury prevention, the doctors and trainers developed this special program for Camp Lejeune and Camp Geiger. “We have a prevention team available to go out to the commands and assist them with techniques, or training which will help in future injury prevention.
“Throughout our various clinics, we track which commands all injuries stem from in order to offer our services to them,” said Lawson, regarding the prevention program developed by the clinic. Clinic resident HM2 Barry Carr Lead Petty Officer, described the sports medicine athletic trainers as the Navy’s newest and most important asset. “When the trainers are able to transition from a clinical setting to individual Marine Corps units, the prevention aspect becomes more effective, much like trainers who work with professional athletic teams,” said Carr. The dedication which fills the Sports Medicine Clinic aboard base originates from a selfless group of people, who find helping MCB Camp Lejeune’s service members extremely rewarding. Wojcik finds her reward in the appreciation of service members able to return to their duties fully rehabilitated from injury. Their gratitude leaves her fulfilled, knowing she made a difference in their lives, and sometimes their careers. “My parents were both in the Army, and I knew I wanted to help the military community. This job allows me to use my skills to help service members return to their job, and continue to serve,” said Wojcik. For more information on the Sports Medicine Clinic, locations and services, or to schedule a prevention discussion for your command call 451-7529.

Navy claims silver in volleyball tournament LANCE CPL. DEVIN NICHOLS 2nd Marine Logistics Group
Two sailors took home the silver medal for the All-Navy Beach Volleyball team during the Armed Forces Volleyball tournament at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, recently. Lt. j. g. Abbie J. Merkl accepted the challenge to represent her unit, but most of all to represent the Navy with her athletic abilities “I love volleyball. It’s great to be back and get to do something I love. This is what we’re able to do to represent the Navy, and it was awesome,” said Merkl. Merkl comprised half of the two-woman, beach volleyball team, and depended on teammate Lt. j. g. Jesselynn LaValley throughout the tournament. She didn’t worry, because LaValley was part of the team for her undeniable abilities. To prove they deserved a spot on the team, Merkl and LaValley endured
a tough application process, and outplayed 20 other prospective sailors during a three-day tryout. “We put together references. It was almost like we made a résumé to try out.Out of the 12 females who make it, only four can try out for the beach volleyball team,” said Merkl. She added, “Making the team was pretty exciting. There were some girls who made the team in the past, so it was intimidating fighting for a spot.” After the roster was finalized, the newly formed team spent two weeks training aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Calif., before traveling to Hill AFB. The All-Navy Beach Volleyball team contended for wins throughout 14 matches. Merkl and LaValley staked their claim on the silver medal after they fell short to the All-Army team in the championship match. Merkl was disappointed after coming so close to a gold medal, but
said the feeling dissipated during the medal ceremony. “It turned into a great feeling to come back to my command and tell them I was successful, and tell them thank you for letting me do this,” said Merkl.

Families dance to message of acceptance AMY BINKLEY
Assistant managing editor
ith warthogs waltzing, rhinoceroses rock and rolling, and chimps doing the cha cha, where does a giraffe who can’t dance fit in? It’s a jungle out there. Service members and their families took a walk on the wild side during the Tell Me a Story event at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, June 8. The program was put together after the base received a grant from the Military Child Education Coalition because of the large population of Wounded Warrior families. In an effort to promote literacy and acceptance of others through a variety of fun and educational activities, the program centered on the lessons
learned from the book “Giraffes Can’t Dance” by Giles Andreae. “All kids and parents love books,” said Donna Grady, Camp Lejeune school liason. “(The book) lends itself to exciting activities, and it’s a great way to exaggerate the whole theme that everyone is different and everyone is special in their own way.” The story tells the tale of Gerald the giraffe who desperately wants to join in the Jungle Dance but is ridiculed by his fellow jungle dwellers for his lack of finesse on the dance floor. Saddened, Gerald is ready to give up hope until he’s given advice from another animal with a different perspective. He learns how “sometimes when you’re different, you just need a different song.” After finding his own rhythm and moves he is celebrated by his peers and welcomed to the party to show off his unique style.

‘Now You See Me’ follows magic of ‘Iron Man’ Now playing at Camp Lejeune “IRON MAN 3” (PG-13) “Iron Man 3” is the continuation of the popular Iron Man series. This third installment pits the brash but brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/ Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him. Robert Downey Jr. (“The Avengers,” “Sherlock Holmes”) reprises his role of billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist Tony Stark. He suits up again as the high-flying hero with a more romantic mission, protecting his girlfriend from the clutches of a new super villain. Gwyneth Paltrow (“Contagion,” “Country Strong”) returns as Pepper Potts, Stark’s love interest and CEO of Stark Industries. However, when Stark is targeted by a super terrorist mastermind called The Mandarin, a world troublemaker, portrayed by Ben Kingsley (“Shutter Island”), his world is torn
apart, he loses most of his vast inventory of gadgets and weapons; and now must start an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution. Don Cheadle (“Flight”) returns as Stark’s friendly rival, Air Force Lieutenant Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes. Rebecca Hall (“The Town”) co-stars as Maya Hansen, a brainy botanist who crosses path in the orbit with our tycoon super hero. Also starring are Guy Pearce (“Lawless”) as the other villain, inventor and entrepreneur Aldrich Killian, Jon Favreau (“Identity Thief ”) as Happy Hogan, William Sadler (“Man on a Ledge”) as Sal Kennedy, James Badge Dale (“The Grey”) as Eric Savin, and Paul Bettany (“Priest”) as the voice of Jarvis. Director and co-writer Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”), who is better known as the screenwriter of films such as “Lethal Weapon” and “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” tackles the big challenge of huge special effects in “Iron Man 3.” “Iron Man 3” is a thrill ride with our superhero, a very refreshing and enjoyable sequel with a powerful new villain.

Marines humbled by community’s support CPL. CHARLIE CLARK
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
Welcome home. The simple phrase means more than just a friendly greeting. To the Marines at Wounded Warrior Battalion East, it is a verbal embrace of support and encouragement after surviving combat zones abroad. Five Marines from WWBn-East received certificates of appreciation and thank you packages from seven members of the North Carolina Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Chapter 15-4 during an informal ceremony at the WWBn-East lounge aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, June 5. More than a dozen organizations
and businesses from Jacksonville, N.C., combined their resources to assemble the packages for the Marines. “Over the course of the past three years, it has been inspiring to see the outpouring of public support for our nation’s wounded, ill and injured Marines,“ said Maj. Paul Greenberg, executive officer of WWBn-East. “The hard work and donations from patriotic Americans and a myriad of non-profit organizations had a profoundly positive impact on the recovery and transition of our Marines in care.” Retired Master Sgt. H. T. Huchi, North Carolina Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Chapter 15-4 commander, presented the Marines with their certificates, thanked them for their
service and hugged them in a display of the bond service members create and share whether they are active duty or retired. “Vets helping vets; it’s what we do,” said Huchi. “Every time I’ve talked to and thanked a veteran, I can see in their eyes just how much it means to them. That is something words can’t describe. It’s our duty to make sure these young men and women who wear the uniform never forget how thankful we are for them.” After the Marines received their certificates, the veterans said, “Welcome home,” hugged, sat down, talked and shared stories with the Marines. Huchi shared a story of meeting a young Marine who he knew needed
some cheering up. “I said, ‘Hey devil dog, thank you for your service and welcome home.’ I could see in his eyes he was down and out, so I told him I’d grab some lunch with him,” Huchi said. “He told me he was getting out because he was too late to get his reenlistment done.

4C JUNE 13, 2013 DANCE FROM 1C “‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ was perfect for our population and paralleled our anti-bullying stance we’ve taught all year,” explained Julie Fulton, Camp Lejeune school liason. “The message of the story – that you don’t have to be good at everything – resonates with kids.” Donning animal masks, clutching their personal copies of the book and sitting with their assigned groups, the audience quieted down as the guest reader, Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune commanding general, took the stage and sat among the makeshift jungle scene with a costumed giraffe ready to dance nearby. “Most of my time is spent with adults so every now and then it’s good to get to the grassroots level and spend some time with our young people,” he noted. “Reading can affect people in so many ways, and we always try to encourage it.” Gorry, who was accompanied by his wife, was adamant about being a part of the event because of the importance reading played in his life since he was young, and his guest appearance was the buzz around base as the event filled up just days after being announced. “It’s important to our families to have the general participate. They appreciate how involved he is,” Fulton said. “If he can squeeze it in his busy schedule, he’s always at activities supporting the families.” Gorry praised the event and the gathering of families, especially those with the Exceptional Family Members Program and Wounded Warrior Battalion. “The main theme of the book is very appealing,” he observed. “We’re all different, but your difference is what makes you special.” Tracy Sosa, EFMP program supervisor, was overjoyed to see so many families coming together to hear the message of inclusion. “Reading is so important and this event reinforced the importance of reading stories about accepting each other to children. It makes kids more aware that some people are different, and that’s okay,” she said. “We’re all different, but we’re all people.” After Gorry finished the story, the groups took a

Then the real fun began. Leaders journeyed with their groups to different stations around Marston Pavilion where the excited participants made animal puppets and crafts, got their faces painted, and danced along with the beats during Jungle Zumba. Grady admitted she had parents tell her they were afraid to dance along in fear of looking foolish, but then realized the point of the event was to embrace their differences, even if it meant appearing silly. Aside from the dancing giraffes, General and Mrs.
Gorry became the stars of the day as they sat at a jungle-themed table and encouraged each child to leave their autograph in his personal copy of the book. The general is an avid collector of autographed books and was sure to return the favor. “It’s a give and take with my audience,” he commented. “You can tell they’re proud to put their names in my book. I’ll keep it and remember this day for a long time.” Both Grady and Fulton hope the young audience left encouraged to be who they are and accept others for their differences. They also would like to hold the event again in the future.

s healthcare demands rise across the U.S., the next generation of job seekers are focusing their efforts on the medical field. Students from Lejeune High School’s Health Sciences/Nurse Aide I aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune visited the United States Naval Hospital Ship Comfort, recently. Students enrolled in the program gain better knowledge of the medical field and graduate high school with skills to deliver safe and effective patient care. The program illustrates the different options given in the medical field. The high school students are afforded the opportunity to graduate high school with a national certification that has trained them for jobs in
the medical field. The program exposes them to careers the students have a desire in, said Angelia Washington, the Health Sciences Educator and Nurse Aide I program coordinator aboard base. The program planned a visit to the Comfort for over two years, and finally did so. The students were taken aboard the vessel and given a tour of the medical facilities. “I’ve been planning this trip for two and a half years,” said Washington. “I’ve wanted my students to visit the Comfort since I started the program in 2010. I was determined to get my students to the Comfort.” Emergency precautions and treatment facilities were demonstrated during the tour. The guide showed them more than 15 facilities aboard the ship. “My students will remember that they’ve chosen a field that actually makes a difference in people’s
Seeing Stars in Dixie
Assess your journey CAPT. TIM OVERTURF 2nd Marine Divison
Hundreds of 19th century pioneers successfully completed the “Jornada del Muerto,” or “Journey of the Dead Man” which lay between their Midwest beginning and their California destination. One particular jornada was 78.5 miles long through the barren stretches of New Mexico. During the dry season there was not a drop of water, hence the name “Journey of the Dead Man.” The travelers’ success was largely due to the insight and counsel of Randolph Barnes Marcy, an Army officer who knew the way and knew how to overcome the many obstacles. Among Marcy’s insights, found today in “The Prairie Traveler,” were recommendations on when to rest and re-hydrate animals, and when to
lives,” said Washington. “One of the things the Comfort does is humanitarian relief efforts. So going to different parts of the world just to help others who cannot help themselves is magnificent.” The students are also assigned a mentor, said Navy Lt. Carlton Bennett, a senior level nursing adviser aboard base. “The mentors give them someone to ask their questions to,” said Bennett. “And once the students reach the medical field they have someone to talk to.” The program showcases options available in the medical field. “Even if we don’t already know exactly what field we want to get into yet,” said Katelin Coram, a Lejeune High School student. “It gives us options, it’s exciting getting trained and gaining experience. I’ve learned there’s a lot you don’t know in the medical field.”

resume travel following breaks. A timely completion of the “Jornada del Muerto” required night travel with only 10 to 15 minute rests every two hours. Broken wagons were frequent enemies along the journada. Marcy’s directions on how to repair wagons and how to re-integrate them into the train were invaluable for inexperienced travelers. Regardless of how elaborate our plan for the future is, we can only live life one day at a time. Appropriately, the prayer called “The Lord’s Prayer,” teaches prayer for “daily bread,” rather than weekly, monthly or annual bread. Add to this wisdom found in the New Testament book of Matthew that encourages us to “not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will take care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” How’s your jornada going today?

weight and size,” said Jennifer Roby, the chair of volunteers with the NavyMarine Corps Relief Society. Parents can find resources at the Well Baby Clinics, said Roby, whether it’s through pamphlets at the reception table or the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society staff who can link parents with other services. “You can freely ask questions,” said Heather Underhill, a registered nurse and lactation consultant. “You’ll have all of the support we can offer.” The nurses provide information, educating parents and giving them confidence while easing concerns new parents may face, said Roby. “People leave with a peace of mind,” said Roby. The clinic’s clothing exchange has tables of donated clothes and items for young children. Every month the clinic has a theme such as separation anxiety, stroller safety and sign language. Each session has a raffle with prizes. The program is a resource for all military families, regardless of rank, with a valid military identification card. Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society hosts many services for military families. They provide financial management education, visiting nurses, interest-free loans and Budget for Baby, a workshop that teaches budgeting techniques and the financial impact of children.

Military children can be weighed and measured monthly at the Well Baby Clinic, held the first Tuesday of every month at the Tarawa Terrace Community Center and the second Tuesday of every month at the Midway Park Chapel from 10 a.m. to noon.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune area parents have a resource available to freely ask questions from registered nurses about their child’s development through Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society’s Well Baby Clinic. The Well Baby Clinic is held during the first Tuesday of every month at the Tarawa Terrace Community Center and the second Tuesday of every month at the Midway Park Chapel from 10 a.m. to noon. Babies and toddlers are weighed and measured by nurses who can answer questions about medical concerns and general child development. While the information does not replace a doctor’s advice, the nurses provide guidance on noncritical childhood illnesses, how children adapt to siblings, a child’s feeding schedule or any other topic. A lactation consultant is typically available to answer questions about breastfeeding. Nurses with the program can give parents information on children of all ages. However, another aspect of the clinic where parents can exchange donated clothing has more items and clothing available for toddlers and babies. “Our typical client is a new mom anxious about her new baby or one who wants to keep a baby book with monthly

Volunteers gain love for community with Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
What began when Jessie McManus received a flier at a workshop led to her assisting more than 700 members of the military community and a scholarship to her dream career. McManus is one of many volunteers with the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, an organization that provides financial education and assistance to members of the Navy and the Marine Corps and their families. She received the flier during Budget for Baby, a Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society workshop where members of the military community learn budgeting techniques and how to prepare for the financial impact of a child.
She put the flier on her refrigerator and out of her mind. Months later when she wanted a break from being a stay-at-home mom, she saw it and gave the society a call. She wanted to serve the military community, said McManus. The work the society does provided that for her and led her directly into the career she wanted. “What starts off as a break from the kids turns into personal growth and development,” McManus explained. Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provided more than $2 million to members of the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune community last year and is run primarily by volunteers. Volunteers of all skill levels, ages and backgrounds join the organization to help service members with financial education and assistance
along with many other programs for the military community. Putting in more than 26,000 hours last year, volunteers manage and operate programs and services held by the organization. “When you walk in, you may not notice they are volunteers,” said Jennifer Roby, the chair of volunteers with the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. The volunteers dress for the job, maintaining a professional standard, said Roby. They are viewed as staff, maintaining the responsibilities and expectations associated with paid employees. Some volunteers hold professional careers and some are just entering the workforce. Such diversity leads to the organizations’ strength, said Roby. It’s a place where people learn skills or
maintain the skills they’ve earned. Volunteers teach workshops, do clerical work, case work and public relations It can be used as a stepping stone toward a future career or as a way to keep a resume current. Whatever strengths a volunteer has can be used with Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, said Christine Zimmerman, a volunteer at the organization. It is a place to meet members of the military community and, “forge your own family,” said McManus. “You can build lifelong friendships,” said Roby. Volunteers are not limited to work within the facility. Some volunteers work from home throughout the country, knitting and crocheting blankets for use in the Budget for Baby work-
shop’s free layettes. McManus spent five years volunteering with the society and in that time worked her way up to a level four caseworker, the highest level and one previously unattained by a volunteer with the society. She served as the chair of volunteers and earned a scholarship to achieve her goals. She now works as a paid employee with the society. In her years working there, what sticks out in McManus’ memory are the times when she met clients who were distraught, who walked in stressed and afraid with a slew of past due bills, she said. She helped many in similar predicaments prepare a monthly budget and apply for an interestfree loan with the society. She also helped them get through the emergency
with a plan for the future. McManus said after such sessions, she can see the burdens leave the client. The volunteers’ efforts do not go unrecognized, throughout National Volunteer Week, the facility held a cookout and a relaxation event with yoga at Onslow Beach. An award and recognition ceremony was recently held at the Paradise Point Officer’s Club aboard base. The volunteers pay for nothing out of pocket for working with the society. The organization provides yarn to knitters and postage to send them to the society. They also provide child care and reimburse mileage to volunteers.

I told him I’ll see him on T.V. in a few years during one of the races.” “He joined the Marines, went through boot camp and training, survived Afghanistan but had no idea what he was going to do after getting out,” said Huchi. “We just happened to be in the same place at the same time, and I said ‘Thank you for your service and welcome home.’ It makes a world of difference.” One of the Marines shared his feelings of being welcomed home. “Welcome home means it’s good to see you,” said Cpl. Kurtis C. Turner, a Marine with WWBn-East. “It almost feels like you came back together. It’s humbling.” Having the local community come together and show support for the
Marines made them feel appreciated and loved, said Turner. Huchi said the packages are a small token of the community’s appreciation for the Marines. What matters is they are alive and well back home. “(Civilians) need to try and lose the fear, extend their hand in friendship, acknowledge the person is a vet and thank them for their service.” said Huchi. “We come out here and let them know they aren’t forgotten.” The bonds of the community, veterans and active-duty Marines were strengthened because of the selfless acts from the community for the Marines. “It means more than you know,” said Turner. “It’s good to know the community cares about us.”

Onslow Beach Marine Mart officially opens LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
Beach-goers at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune have a place to do their beach shopping this summer at a new seaside convenience store. The Onslow Beach Marine Mart held a ribbon cutting to commemorate the opening of their facility, June 4. Onslow Beach is a great family and pet-friendly place to relax without having to drive far, said Sgt. Nathan Rogers, the manager of the Onslow Beach Marine Mart. Having the store near the shore means patrons can buy beach gear, fishing equipment, barbecue essentials, snacks and magazines for their beach trip. Beach regulations prohibit glass, so only drinks bottled in plastic containers are sold at the facility. Customers can also acquire a 10-day or annual fishing license at the facility. The new facility has been open several weeks, a common occurrence for Marine Marts before a ribbon cutting to ensure items are stocked and a baseline is established within the store, said Rogers. It has already seen thousands of beach-goers, averaging 500 to 700 patrons on the weekends. Onslow Beach Marine Mart is open Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday to Sunday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information call 440-7230.

Before you begin, keep a couple of things in mind. • Do Not Abbreviate, hyphenate or combine any word with the use of slashes, commas, or periods. • You MUST have a space between words. • Please spell everything out and type in LOWER CASE, we will put your ﬁrst few words of your ad in UPPER CASE and bold • Your ad will run weekly, starting on THURSDAY(s) and will publish in BOTH the Globe newspaper & Globe website for the number of weeks you select. You can not run your classiﬁed ad on individual days. • Deadline for Classiﬁed and Trader ads is Thursday 11a.m. EST, one week prior to publication date. *Deadlines may be earlier during weeks of major holidays. The preview you will see of your ad is a close approximation of how the ad will appear in the newspaper. In most cases, it will be exactly the same; however, no matter how diﬀerent it may appear in print, your price will not change. All of the following pages are
secured using 128-bit encryption, so you can feel safe about using your credit card online. Your ad will be reviewed by our Classiﬁed Specialists before your credit card will be charged. However, at no time is your credit card information seen by a live person - that's all done electronically without human intervention and the click of a button. You always have the option to view the price and ad before paying for it. If you experience any problems using our Classiﬁed Ad Buying system, feel free to reference our HELP page or call (910) 347-9624.
Thanks, The Classiﬁed Department Disclaimer: All classiﬁed ads are subject to approval. We make every eﬀort to avoid mistakes in your classiﬁed advertisement. Please check your ad the ﬁrst day it runs! We cannot be responsible beyond the ﬁrst insertion. Should an error occur please notify the classiﬁed department. Liability for advertising errors is limited to a "make-good" ad in the amount of space occupied by the error. We can not be held liable for failure, for any cause, to insert an ad.
