Marines and sailors with Company E, Battalion Landing Team, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, conducted military operations on urban terrain training aboard Capu Midia, Romania, July 31. The training was part of the Summer Storm Amphibious Bilateral Exercise, a five-day exercise with Romanian Marines from the 307th Marine Infantry Battalion, to increase the interoperability between American and Romanian forces. “The training went really well. We had a large amount of training to cover, which is good,” said 1st Lt. Samuel Moore, a platoon commander with Company E.

The Romanian and U.S. forces used the buildings to exchange tactics, techniques and procedures for conducting two-man room clearing, four-man room clearing, hallway clearing, and other MOUT techniques. The Marines executed each task with speed, precision and alertness, with weapons at the ready, and quick deliberate movements. They were followed shortly by the Romanians, whose high level of discipline and similar tactics surprised some of the Marines. “It’s kind of cool to see a foreign military that we’ve never personally trained with have some of the same (tactics, techniques and procedures) that we do,” said Cpl. Clay C. Johnson, a squad leader

was with Company E. “II wa as pretty impressed.” The Marine Corps’’ Th M i C well-developed MOUT doctrine combined with Company E’s combat experience gave the Romanians real-world experience to learn from and implement. “The training helped my Marines understand the way that they should act in a real environment,” said 1st Lt. Liviu Visan, a Romanian Marine platoon commander with the 307th Marine Infantry Battalion. “I saw a few details that my Marines also observed that, in the future, will be implemented into their training.” As the MEU Marines moved through their checklist of training objectives it became clear that they weren’t just teaching the Romanians, but learning from them as well.

New signalization at Birch Street, Wallace Creek Road CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

By September, Marines are scheduled to make the new Wallace Creek complex their new home. Because this will cause the intersection of Wallace Creek Road and Birch Street to become fairly active, a new traffic signal will be put in place to ensure traffic safety. Barring any weather delays or unforeseen problems, the proj-

ect should be completed no later than Aug. 14. The new signals will allow motorists coming out of Wallace Creek to make a safe left turn toward Holcomb Boulevard. The light at the intersection will stop traffic on Birch Street from both directions and will have a permitted left turn signal, allowing drivers to turn from Birch Street onto Wallace Creek Road safely. Signage and striping on the road will also be added to allevi-

ate any confusion. Project construction started Monday and will continue throughout the weekend. The road will be shut down completely for no more than a few minutes at a time during a brief portion of the construction. At some points during the construction, the traffic will be reduced to one lane at a time, but sufficient signage and flagmen will be provided so motorists understand where to go during construction periods.

“It will be a minor inconvenience to folks going through there,” said Todd Carver, construction manager for the project with the Officer in Charge of Construction aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “They will have to slow down a little bit but it shouldn’t be a total traffic snarl because it will allow through-traffic the whole time they’re working.” To alleviate as many traffic delays as possible, construction will start later in the morning,

around 9 a.m., and will work around traffic patterns during rush hours. “Once the signals go up, there will probably be a couple-week period where the lights are flashing, just to get people used to the idea that there is a signal there,” said Carver. After the two-week period, the traffic light will become active and motorists should be prepared to stop at the Birch Street and Wallace Creek Road intersection.



Afghan farmers trade poppy seeds for wheat seeds CPL. MARCO MANCHA

2nd Marine Division (Forward)


The change of agriculture in Afghanistan is steadily steering away from the illegal crops which fund insurgent forces year after year. Civil Affairs Team 3, which is supporting the Afghan government, plans to continue providing wheat as an alternative to growing poppy and cannabis in Afghanistan’s Nawa District to drive the country into a stable future. The civil affairs team with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), is working with the Afghan government to provide at least one bag of wheat seed and fertilizer per eligible farmers within the Nawa District this September. The project is a part of the Food Zone Program that allows the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to distribute thousands of bags of wheat seed and fertilizer in Helmand province. The program reached more than 32,000 farmers within Helmand in 2008 when the program first started. Eligibility for the seed and fertilizer will depend on whether or not the farmer has already benefited from the program. The civil affairs team is working with Nawa District Governor, Haji Abdul Manaf, to find out which farmers haven’t received the wheat seed and fertilizer. Those who Photo by Cpl.

FTC looks at military auto financing On Aug. 2 and 3 in San Antonio, the Federal Trade Commission held its second national roundtable discussion on auto finance, this time focusing on problems encountered by military service members. The discussions focused on “buy here, pay here” sellers, who arrange financing at the dealership. They are exempt from regulation by the new Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, but are still regulated by the FTC. Panelists included military representatives, government officials, consumer advocates, car dealers, finance company executives and auto industry consultants. They cited as special problems in the military community troop transience, lack of consumer sophistication (especially among the most junior members), lack of time, potential loss of clearance resulting from financial mismanagement, limited Internet access, lack of practical access to the courts and the specific targeting of troops by predatory dealers and lenders. Industry panelists minimized consumer problems, asserted that existing regulations are sufficient, and generally blamed consumers for providing inaccurate information of credit applications, failing to use educational tools available and generally making poor consumer choices. Military attorneys (including this author), consumer advocates and others saw things quite differently. They cited misrepresentations by dealers concerning the lowest interest rates available, bait and switch advertising,

yo-yo sales, slipping add-ons into financing deals, failing to pay off balances owed on trade-ins, misleading consumers concerning warranties and other predatory practices. Industry advocates blamed consumers for being unprepared to purchase and finance vehicles, while consumer groups asserted that the auto purchase and finance process is complex and lacks transparency. Industry representatives asserted that existing remedies are sufficient, while consumer groups pointed out the infrequency and weakness of government enforcement actions, the impracticality of finding attorneys to handle these matters, the inordinate time and expense of litigation in comparison to the dollar values in dispute, and the prohibitions against litigation contained in mandatory arbitration provisions of dealer contracts. While all agreed that additional education of service members would be helpful, consumer advocates recommended making the process itself more fair and transparent, and better public and private enforcement, in addition to education. Key issues included “spot delivery” and dealer interest rate mark-ups. In a spot delivery, the dealer sells a car to the consumer, contingent upon the dealer arranging certain financing. When it evolves into the yo-yo scam, the dealer deliberately misleads the consumer to believe that the financing is complete, or is all but completed, and lets the buyer drive off the lot with the new car. The dealer then finds himself unable to sell the loan to a lender at a

high enough price to ensure substantial profit, so he calls the consumer days later, telling him to return the car because the financing “fell through.” The dealer then offers the consumer another car or a less favorable loan. In this predatory practice, if the consumer refuses to sign a new contract, the dealer refuses to return the consumer’s trade in and down payment. The interest rate mark up stems from consumers obtaining their loan information solely from the dealer. The dealer calls various lenders, obtains a loan and, unknown to the consumer, quotes the buyer an interest rate higher than the rate the lender authorized. Although the dealer pretends to be shopping for the best deal for the consumer, the dealer is in fact shopping for the best deal for himself. According to some consumer groups, this excess interest, or as industry advocates refer to it, this “dealer reserve” adds up to billions of dollars annually. A lawsuit against several of the major lenders resulted in a settlement limiting dealer mark-ups to about two percent. But the settlement did not require dealers to disclose the mark-ups to the consumer and only included the lenders in the lawsuit. In any event, the settlement agreement caps on interest rate mark ups are set to expire soon. Hearing transcripts and webcast will be available on the FTC web site. Consumers can post a comment and, of course, are strongly encouraged to make consumer complaints via the FTC’s online military sentinel.

Communication Marines keep EOD connected xplosive ordnance disposal teams play a vital role in International Security Assistance Force operations due to the number of improvised explosive devices the insurgency planted across Afghanistan. For them to properly do their job, they have to communicate with other units and combat operation centers about the detonation of the IEDs and, in a worsecase scenario, medical evacuation. “Radios are how we communicate within the convoy,� explained Sgt. Christopher T. Wehunt, a multi-channel equipment operator with 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward). “Without working communication devices, you’re left without situational awareness of what’s going on outside your vehicle.� Communication specialists from the 2nd MLG (Fwd.) are responsible for

keeping the Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams’ radios and other communication devices up and running. To keep up with the demand they travel around Helmand province to upgrade and perform operation checks on the equipment. “We ensure the EOD teams are able to continue operations by going to them,� said Wehunt. “If the teams had to bring their trucks to a major hub, it would reduce their mission capabilities and pose more of a threat for the troops working in the area left behind.� The three-man communication team travels to the different forward operating bases to perform maintenance checks on the devices. “If communication systems aren’t maintained, then communication goes down,� said Cpl. Andrew S. Black, a ground radio intermediate repairer with 2nd MLG (Fwd.). “Electronics are tricky. The smallest thing can hinder their performance.�

MOUT FROM 1A “The Romanians are already pretty proficient in things that we do,� said Staff Sgt. Timothy M. Ward, a platoon sergeant with Company E. “A lot of it is fine tuning that makes them better and makes us better because we don’t always see ourselves and make those small corrections.� By the end of the day, the jesting,

laughing and overall atmosphere was a clear sign of the camaraderie built between the Romanians and Marines. “It’s been nothing but positive,� said Moore. “When they’re friendly it makes a more positive overall experience and they actually get more out of the training.�


2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)


After ensuring the equipment works properly, the team begins installing upgrades. “We upgraded the vehicle adapter units and radios,� explained Black. “The VAU upgrade increased its power output, and the software for the radios allows new options to be run. It also took care of any bugs in the previous software.� The software upgrades increase efficiency once installed. “The radios still worked without the upgrades, but they had issues talking to other types of radios,� explained Wehunt. “This latest upgrade is supposed

to fix that problem. “Every piece of gear issued has small problems that can be upgraded to make it better or to fix small problems that couldn’t be handled due to the need of that specific piece of gear,� added Wehunt. The communication Marines will continue to travel to forward operating bases throughout Helmand province to ensure Marines and sailors have the equipment required to accomplish the mission. “Bottom line, you can’t conduct an operation without the ability to communicate with everyone around you,� concluded Wehunt. “You have to keep situ-

Marines with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), walk through a wheat field after the top half of the wheat was cut off. Local farmers save the bottom half of the wheat and process it into a fine grainy substance they use to build houses and walls around the area. WHEAT FROM 1A saved a small portion of the wheat they’ve grown to grow more the next season. This gives the farmers a self-sufficient alternative to the illegal cultivation of opium poppy. The project is led by the local government and has been running for the last two years and has shown great success throughout Nawa. Capt. Corey Bafford, the assistant team leader for the civil affairs team, says the proof can be seen while on patrol. “Nawa had a lot of poppy and opium growth ... it was everywhere,� said Bafford. “Now, when you go out on patrols, you really don’t see poppy and opium being grown in mass quantities like before 2009, when 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment came into the area. So, I think the proof is right there.� The program kicked off in 2009 when approximately 300 metric tons of wheat seed arrived at the Nawa District Center and was distributed to more than 3,700 farmers in the region. The civil affairs team hopes to have greater success this year and give even more eligible farmers the opportunity to cultivate the wheat that accounts for more than half the caloric intake of the Afghan population, according to reports from the United States Department of Agricultural. “By (GIRoA) giving them the wheat seed and the fertilizer to help grow that seedthe (government) is helping people transition from growing illicit crops to wheat,� explained Bafford. “We hope this will help move Nawa forward.� Farmers not only process the wheat for consumption, but use the lower half of the wheat stem as a part of their mix to build houses, walls, and other hard structures made of mud and bits of wheat. Maj. Jason Johnson hopes programs like these will help meet the needs of the local residents. “I think the focus for civil affairs is really centered on the needs of the people and how we can best facilitate the Afghan government's means to provide for its citizens,� said the civil affairs team leader. “Projects like this one are examples of what we've been trying to do and will continue to do until the job is done.� More than 4,400 packages of wheat and fertilizer will be delivered in September to the projected thousands of farmers in the area.

t has once been said that “The best example of leadership is leadership by example.” The definition of leadership is not found within these words, but rather the essence of what it means to be a leader; lead not by command alone, but also with one’s own actions. In the few short weeks following his appointment as commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East, it is said that Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry perfectly embodies leading from the front and genuinely caring about the Marines under his charge. This and much more was also said of Gorry during his frocking ceremony at the Paradise Point Officers’ Club aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Aug. 2. “If you look at his biography, he has one of the most balanced careers there is for a general officer,” said Lt. Gen. Dennis J. Hejlik, commanding general of Fleet Marine Forces Atlantic, Marine Corps Bases Atlantic and United States Marine Corps Forces Command. “When you look at his fine blend of academic and command education, he is well prepared for the position he has entered into. He’ll take MCIEAST to the next level along with all the Marines and their families under him.” Gorry holds four college degrees with a distinguished Marine Corps career that began in 1985

as a ground supply officer with Brigade Service Support Group 1, 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade. Gorry comes into his position following his previous assignment as the director of the Command and Staff College, Marine Corps University. Among the various distinguishing aspects of his career, one notable feature is how Gorry was a general’s aide twice, once for the CG of Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and again for the CG of III Marine Expeditionary Force. Both of those general officers, now retired, attended Gorry’s frocking and pinned his stars on his collar. “If I did anything good in my life following (Gorry’s) appointment as my aide, it was because of him,” said retired Lt. Gen. Earl B. Hailston, past CG of III MEF. “The kind of Marine he was and the impact he has on those around him made me a better Marine myself. The Marine Corps is the winner by appointing (Gorry) to this position – they got the best end of the deal.” A Marine who has a deep caring and appreciation for those service members under his command, from the newest private to the most senior colonel – something that was told both in words and by emotion of the ceremony. A man who is said to wear his emotions on his sleeve, Gorry was visually awash with the impact of his appointment and the opportunity it gives him to serve not only the tens of thousands of service members aboard MCB Camp

Marines increase water production, distribution in Musa Qala District SGT. RACHAEL MOORE

2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)

Water purification systems continue to take the place of bottled water, increasing the expeditionary capability of troops in Afghanistan. Water support technicians with Combat Logistics Battalion 8, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), at Forward Operating Base Musa Qala, are using two tactical water purification systems to supply purified water and therefore reduce the need of convoy and helicopter resupply missions. “We just received the TWPS a little over a month ago,� explained Cpl. Joseph J. Laflamme, a water support specialist with CLB-8. “With each one of the systems, we are able to purify 1,200 to 1,500 gallons per hour.� Since the TWPSs arrived to the base, the Marines have pumped, purified and delivered more than 100,000 gallons of water for Marines and sailors with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Fwd.) as well as other units operating in the area. “The water goes to all the water (containers), the laundry section and showers on this base and other bases throughout the (area of operation),� Laflamme said. “The goal is to make this base the main water distribution point for the area. “With the TWPS, we can produce more water, faster,� Laflamme concluded. “We are not going to have to sit and wait for convoys to bring drinking water.�

Get your head down!” These were the words of Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Shoener, a hospital corpsman and instructor at the Joint Sustainment Academy Southwest, as he instructed 24 Afghan students to stay low while applying tourniquets to one another. This unique instruction took place during the final exercise of the Combat Medic Assistant Course aboard Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, July 27. The new course, which took nearly four months to develop, is designed to give intermediate medical skills to Afghan National Security Forces. Within the U.S. armed forces, medical training is divided into three tiers. Tier one consists of the elementary first-aid skills taught to all service members during basic training. Tier two consists of advanced first aid and lifesaving procedures, while tier three is training specific to

corpsmen and medics. The Combat Medic Assistant Course at JSAS mirrors the tier two training U.S. personnel receive. The course is designed to augment the skills of a medic on the battlefield and provide an alternative source of care in case the medic becomes injured or there are an excessive number of casualties. For two weeks, Shoener, along with Petty Officer 1st Class Terry Gray and Petty Officer 3rd Class Lucien Vienot, all Navy corpsmen and JSAS instructors, taught the Afghan soldiers the same tier two lifesaving skills they would normally teach to Marines. Each day included physical training, two hours of literacy classes, classroom lectures and practical application. The students were taught how to control life-threatening bleeding, restore breathing, and how to treat burns, shock and head injuries. “The main thing is to stop massive hemorrhaging,” said Shoener.“That’s the number one cause of preventable death on the battlefield. That’s the one thing we drive

home the most.” During the different classroom lectures and practical application exercises, the corpsmen would frequently stop what they were doing and yell, “Tourniquet!” and then instruct which limb to put it on. They would then walk up to each student and make sure the tourniquet was applied properly. “Tourniquet applications – find the right spot and do it quickly. We got most of them down to doing it between 10 and 15 seconds,” said Shoener. During the final exercise, the students were put through a simulated patrol in which they marched three miles on the western side of Camp Leatherneck. The corpsmen put them through numerous simulated drills in which they were to take cover from enemy fire and apply a tourniquet to the student on their right or left. At the midway point of the patrol, the corpsmen had constructed a mass-casualty scenario where three other SEE SKILLS 11A

Afghans train to defeat terrorist threats PETTY OFFICER 1ST CLASS GINO FLORES

Regional Command Southwest


hirteen Afghan National Security Forces personnel received diplomas July 28 after completing the anti-terrorism and force protection course at Joint Sustainment Academy Southwest, Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province. This marked the second time JSAS has offered the one-week course, which provides the expertise necessary to optimize security measures in Afghanistan. “We are passing on a wealth of information in order for the ANSF to train their soldiers,” said Maj. Adolfo Torres, an anti-

terrorism force protection officer with the operations section for Regional Command Southwest. “This is part of ANSF development plans to carry forth information so that they can teach their troops and be ready for (2014).” The students are taught to focus and work as a team to develop an ATFP plan to protect leadership, personnel, equipment and facilities. These lessons are taught through documented lessons and case studies on terrorist attacks, explained Torres. During the training, the instructors also sent students to a simulated outpost to identify vulnerable points and find solutions. A key point in the course came when students reviewed enemy tactics and how insurgents


Nimroz provincial, district governors meet for first time PETTY OFFICER 1ST CLASS KURT WESSELING III Regional Command Southwest

Senior Nimroz provincial, district, military, and police officials met here July 27 for the first time to discuss their current concerns and plan how to resolve future challenges facing the province. Approximately 40 people attended the conference hosted by Provincial Gov. Abdul Karim Barahawi and U.S. military officials, including Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan, commanding general of II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) and Regional Command Southwest. Each district governor used the opportunity to speak about the needs of their individual districts to the assembled officials. Delaram, and the majority of Nimroz province, is located in western Afghanistan’s arid “Dashti Margo,” Persian for “Desert of Death.” During their presentations all of the governors spoke about the populace’s need for water. Speaking through a translator, governor Barahawi said, “(Our number one) problem is the lack of drinking water. For the past 10 years … we haven’t had any facilities for clean drinking water.” Flat, hot and dry, Nimroz province is in the southwest corner of Afghanistan. It is bordered by Iran to the west and Pakistan to the south. Its six districts are home to an estimated 150,000 people. The majority of the population is Baluch and Pashtun, but there are smaller Tajik and Uzbek communities as well. As the conference progressed, district governors and ministry officials also spoke about the need to improve schools, provide athletic opportunities for students, and bring doctors and other health care professionals into the region. Second only to the need for clean drinking water, Barahawi said, “The other serious problem we face is a lack of adequate health care. We don’t have a good hospital or other health care facilities.” In the future Barahawi hopes to secure greater support for the province from the central government in Kabul. At the conclusion of the conference the governor said, “I am very happy and proud that there was a council of the district governors. It was a good meeting and I expect the results of the meeting to be good as well.” Barahawi also said he hopes to hold similar conferences at the district level in months to come.

exploit weaknesses in the outpost perimeter. The course stressed the importance of identifying and addressing all weak points. “Planning security for my command is one element of my job and I’m looking to apply the lessons learned and also share the information with my comrades,” said Afghan National Army Capt. Emal, an officer with the ANA 215th Corps. After the graduation ceremony, Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan, commanding general of Regional Command Southwest, spoke to the ATFP graduates. He advised them to take the lessons learned to heart, citing insurgents’ use of suicide bombers and other terrorist attacks as examples of why the newly-acquired knowledge is essential.

Afghan police broaden horizons through local literacy program CPL. MARCO MANCHA

2nd Marine Division (Forward)


mong the biggest challenges the local government faces as the United States prepares to draw down thousands of troops from Afghanistan is its literacy rate. Only one in 10 recruits who sign up for Afghanistan's police and army can read and write, according to a recent Reuters article. Many of the local residents find something as simple as spelling their own names a challenge. The Police Advisory Team with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward) is working with the Higher Education Institute of Karwan to teach Afghan Uniformed Police throughout Nawa how to read and write. HEIK’s main objective is to support, prepare and encourage Afghan youngsters to enroll in education to create a new, modern and enlightened Afghanistan. HEIK’s members are working closely with both the local AUP and other Afghan security forces throughout the country to help combat the literacy crisis. Staff Sgt. Robert Powell, who is the staff noncommissioned officer in charge for the PAT, keeps track of the literacy instructors spread across numerous AUP precincts and partnered patrol bases. He said the program is fairly new but showing signs of success with the patrolmen in the area. “The good news is after speaking with precincts in the area, classes are still going, there's plenty of communication between the instructor and the (patrolmen), they have the supplies they need, and they want to do it,” explained Powell. The ideal goal after months of

instruction is to take officers with no literacy level to being able to conduct simple, but important tasks that require them to be able to read and write. The military police officer knows the importance of proper handling and documentation of any evidence-related paperwork. Powell recently had to transfer a detainee and evidence against an alleged criminal to the AUP headquarters precinct in Nawa. The transfer went smoothly due to the fact the officer receiving the detainee and evidence was literate. Being able to recognize letters and numbers may also help them in other situations as well, according to one police adviser with the PAT. Cpl. Patrick Winslow is currently working at a joint patrol base in Nawa and believes being able to read and write will help the patrolmen understand many of the other things associated with being a policeman. “Something as simple as reading can help them perform their daily tasks – reading a map, checking for proper paperwork at checkpoints and writing police reports. Hopefully we can reach that level with this program,” said Winslow. One patrolman at the AUP headquarters precinct in the Nawa District Center has a passion for selfimprovement inspired by his HEIK literacy instructor and strives to develop his reading and writing skills. Pvt. Mahmad Dawod Qalamyar, who is currently on track to become a noncommisioned officer, practices his reading and writing skills constantly and has even begun to learn English. Qalamyar, who works as an aid for the district chief of police, said he always has a busy day, and with that he knows the importance of being literate. He added he wants to be a role

Staff Sgt. Robert Powell hands over evidence to a local police officer during the transfer of a detainee. The Police Advisory Team staff noncommisioned officer in charge with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), said the turnover went smoothly because the police officer, who has been actively participating in a literacy program provided by the Higher Education Institute of Karwan, was able to read and write.

model for his fellow patrolmen. “I like to learn new things and I want my friends to be able to read and write like me,” he said. “As far as learning English, it helps me communicate better with the Marines when a linguist is not available.” The literacy instructor for the headquarters precinct, retired Col. Sar-Bland, says Qalamyar is one of five to 20 students he teaches daily. Instructors like Sar-Bland work with the AUP in Nawa to provide one to three classes a day at the local precincts. The amount of classes and how many patrolmen attend depend on the needs of the patrol bases and precincts. The AUP must balance their daily tasks – patrolling with Marines, standing watch, and manning vehicle checkpoints – along with taking the literacy classes. For the PAT and HEIK, seeing the patrolmen better themselves and their country is something they both agree can only be followed by positive things. Editor’s Note: First Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, is currently assigned to Regimental Combat Team 1, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), which heads Task Force Leatherneck. The task force serves as the ground combat element of Regional Command (Southwest) and works in partnership with the Afghan National Security Force and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations. The unit is dedicated to securing the Afghan people, defeating insurgent forces, and enabling ANSF assumption of security responsibilities within its area of operations in order to support the expansion of stability, development and legitimate governance.

Nawa celebrates opening of new justice center CPL. MARCO MANCHA 2nd Marine Division (Forward)


arines w i t h Civil Affairs Te a m 3 joined the local residents of Nawa to celebrate the grand opening of the new justice center, recently. Coordinating Director of Rule of Law and Law Enforcement United States Ambassador Hans G. Klemm and several members of the district's government gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony. The civil affairs team with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward) played a big role in the project's success. Maj. Jason Johnson is currently serving as the civil affairs team leader. He and his team of Marines made sure the project was accomplished. The project was started by Marines of 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, in August 2010. “I think sound governance depends on people being able to bring their

conflicts to a place where all the parties agree on the resolution,” said Johnson. “I think this place will be the symbol of that in the district of Nawa, which is why we worked so hard on it.” The new center comes with a community court room, consultation room, and several office spaces for the district's rule of law figures like the senior judge, prosecutors, and the huquq or civil dispute mediator. The main entrance leads directly to the community court room, which is layered with marble floors and three rows of steel benches for local residents to view the hearings and proceedings. Two pillars separate the row of seats from a pair of tan and beige couches that will accommodate both plaintiff and defendant parties. Toward the end of the room is the senior judge's bench, made of a wood grain desk with the flag of Afghanistan hanging behind it. Daniel Bolick, a law enforcement professional with the Department of State, said the justice center

is “a big win for the Afghan people.” “Rule of law is one of the real core infrastructures of having a stable society,” explained Bolick, who served as a federal investigator for more than 25 years in the FBI and has been working alongside the civil affairs team. “If the people don't believe the government could keep it safe, they're going to be looking for alternatives. By putting up the center, we're showing that rule of law has been established.” According to Bolick, all previous trials were held in temporary facilities within the government center by the senior judge, and didn't allow the people of Nawa to view the court's proceedings. Now, the senior judge, prosecutors and huquq have their own work spaces and offices. The offices come with decorative rugs, desks and several other office furnishings. Klemm, appointed in July 2010 after serving as the U.S. Ambassador in Dili, Timer-Leste from 2007 to 2010, showed his

ANA Soldier graduates, gains knowledge in military specialty SGT. RACHAEL MOORE 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)

The Afghan National Army does all administrative work by hand and without programs that pass information through computers. For the 215th Corps Logistics Brigade, ANA, there’s only one soldier that assists the administration officer with all of the paperwork. To help increase their efficiency, the 2nd Marine Logistics Group (For-

ward) Embedded Partnering Team enrolled that one soldier, Sgt. Azim Sultanzi, in the Joint Administration Course. “He’s going to be able to help with monthly inspections and pay issues among other admin-type work,” explained Capt. Patrick Ross, the officer in charge of the EPT. “In addition, he’s going to be able to do the job he’s supposed to do, which empowers a (noncommissioned officer) by developing a military specialty.” The three-week long course came

to an end during a graduation ceremony aboard Camp Shorabak, Afghanistan, July 28. “We didn’t play a huge role in the course, but the entire team went to the graduation to show our support,” added Ross. “We enrolled him in the course and helped him prepare for it. We do as much as we can to let them know we want to help them and support them.” The EPT continually trains the soldiers so each and every one can benefit the Afghan National Army.

SKILLS FROM 6A JSAS instructors were portraying serious casualties. Several of the students set up security around the area as others rushed on the scene to provide first aid to the simulated casualties. Afterward, the corpsmen critiqued them on what they did wrong and right. After the mass casualty scenario was over, the students marched back carrying one of the simulated casualties on a stretcher. The corpsmen continued to put them through simulated attack drills with more simulated casualties until they arrived back at JSAS. “It makes them realize what it’s going to be like when they’re out on that patrol for eight hours one day and they take contact when they’re seven hours into it and they’re drained and they’re mentally fatigued,” said Shoener. “That’s when the stress hits, so they can realize that it’s a lot harder to operate at those levels than when you’re just sitting in a classroom. (We’re) just trying to give them that simulated combat stress and physical fatigue and mental fatigue so they can operate at any level.” All of the students showed proficiency in applying advanced first aid to simulated casualties. More importantly, they understood why the techniques they learned could help save the lives of their fellow soldiers. “Anybody can be taught to just put a tourniquet on, to just put a bandage on,” said Gray. “What we’re trying to do is give them the baseline knowledge, understand how the body works and why these injuries are life threatening. If they understand them, they can not only treat them but teach others to treat them as well. “In the lectures, they had a lot of questions. They’re hungry for knowledge. I’ve spent the past two weeks tapping my brain of everything I know. I’ve challenged them and they’ve challenged me.” Several of the students had received basic first aid before enrolling in the class, but none of them possessed the advanced skills the corpsmen were able to pass on to them. “Burn injuries are very important to us,” said Mohamed Rustam, a student in the course. “I’ve seen soldiers with burns before, but I was not able to treat them. I now know how to treat them.” Rustam says he is very grateful for the training he has received from the corpsmen. “They’re great, we learned a lot from them,” exclaimed Rustam. “The great thing about them is that they always had a good attitude and were very patient with us even when we kept making mistakes. This helped us to learn many things.” After their graduation ceremony, July 28, each student was given a comprehensive study guide so that they could remain proficient in their newly acquired skills and pass them on to others at their respective units. JSAS is currently in the process of trying to get the course adopted by all Afghan training commands in Afghanistan.

CPL. DAMANY S. COLEMAN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


arine Corps Community Services Semper Fit Division has been hosting the 101 Days of Summer Challenge for different sized units aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, since June. This year, according to Sara Walsh, the trip planning coordinator with the Single Marine Program, MCCS, unit participation has greatly increased from last year, with bigger turnouts in events such as bowling, golf and recreational events such as video gaming. “We have seen an increase in all areas, especially in golf, bowling and video gaming,” said Walsh. “The summer-long event has been a huge success.” Walsh said the MCCS’s intent – getting the leadership at the command level involved with spreading the word to all of its Marines – has paid dividends. She said the big turnouts and competitiveness are because they were more involved. “It’s things that Marines are already involved in,” said Walsh. “They are already coming to the recreation centers to play video games and they already love bowling as well as other things we do. It’s definitely something that gets them out of the barracks.” The most recent events were a video

game tournament held at all the recreation centers Aug. 9 and a dodgeball tournament at select gymnasiums aboard the base yesterday. Currently, in the large division, the School of Infantry – East is in first place with 566 points. In the medium division, troops from 5th Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, are the leaders with 126 points. Out front with 155 points, 10th Marine Regiment has an unthreatened commanding lead for the small division. Marine Corps Combat Service Support School trails SOI-East by 31 points in the large division, and Marine Corps Engineer School trails 5th Battalion, 10th Marines by 11 in the medium. These four teams are within reach of each other, in their respective divisions, to come out on top. The units that accumulate the most points will be rewarded with a monetary incentive deposited into the units’ recreational funds.

Special to The Globe

Coastal North Carolina surely ranks among the nation’s top destinations for angling opportunities. With a wide variety of habitats; from pristine blackwater rivers, to fishing piers that extend 1,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, there is no shortage of things to do for fishermen who appreciate diversity. No fishing hole inspires more excitement than the hot, blue waters of the Gulf Stream, which flows some 20 to 40 miles off the Carolina coast and is home to the mighty blue marlin, the feisty dolphinfish and the tasty grouper. Originating in the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf Stream exits through the Florida Straits and flows north, up the East Coast, before turning across the northern Atlantic toward Europe. The powerful current of warm water acts almost as a river amid the cooler expanse of ocean and allows cold-intolerant fishes like wahoo, barracuda and triggerfish to swim far beyond their tropical habitats. Recreational fishing in the Gulf Stream started in the 1930s in North Carolina at such hallowed seaside villages as Hatteras, Morehead City and Southport. Today, there is a thriving charter boat industry which matches willing anglers with experienced captains and crews to take on the

Eastern North Carolina offers a variety of species and the ever-present chance of catching the fish of a lifetime, visiting anglers would be welladvised to make at least one trip to the Gulf Stream before they leave In fact, it should be required course work for anyone who considers themselves a fisherman. denizens of the deep. The abundance of billfish has spawned one of the largest fishing tournaments on the planet — the annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament — held each June for the last 51 years out of Morehead City. Fishing crews that do well in the tournament have pocketed more than $1 million for the winning fish. In 2008, a North Carolina charter boat landed an astounding 1,228-pound blue marlin and kept the area’s fishing community at the forefront of those considered to be the top marlin destinations in the world. No matter how many marlin there are swimming off the North Caro-

lina coast, the chances of hooking one are slim, and the chances of landing one are slimmer. There is, however, an abundance of gamefish to take up the slack and make any day offshore one to remember. Starting in late April, the spring migration of dolphin fish (mahi-mahi) moves north with the Gulf Stream and provides the most-consistent action for offshore anglers through the early fall. When the dolphins are biting, it’s not unusual for a charter of six to limit out with 60 fish in relatively short order. Dolphins grow fast and reproduce at an astounding rate, making them a favorite of fishermen and charter captains alike.

Other sportfish encountered include king mackerel, yellowfin tuna, sailfish and cobia. Trolling is the most common method of fishing for many, but sending baits to the rocky ledges and sunken wrecks that lie below is highly productive for bottomfish like triggerfish, grouper, sea bass, tilefish and amberjacks. Dropping and reeling up bottom rigs that include as much as 24-ounce lead sinkers in water depths of 90 to 300 feet requires fishermen to have strong arms and stamina even when they are not catching fish. But, the rewards of an icebox laden with some of the tastiest fish to swim the seven seas, are well-worth the sore muscles and

Gottchalk Marina offers service members and their families a myriad of opportunities to enjoy a day in the water.

Sail away your troubles JAMIE CAMERON

Special to The Globe

There is something about the sound a gentle breeze makes passing through the rigging of sailboats as they lay idle at their moorings that cuts through the high humidity and stifling temperatures of mid-July in eastern North Carolina. For those Marines and sailors who take advantage of the myriad of watercraft for rent at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Marine Corps Community Services marinas, it’s a sound that makes the summer swelter more than bearable, it makes it enjoyable. Canoes and kayaks are stacked in racks, ready for anyone to rent for an hour or a day. The wa-

ters in front of Gottschalk Marina, off Julian Smith Road, and to the east down Wallace Creek are tranquil for paddlers of all skill levels. As one passes under the bridge into the upper reaches of the creek, the modern world fades away and a primitive, unchanged landscape takes over. Boaters who take extra care to be unobtrusive as they pass up Wallace Creek are often rewarded with wildlife sightings that include white-tailed deer, waterbirds of various shapes and sizes and even the occasional American alligator. The marinas encourage units to use paddle-powered vessels for physical training by renting them for the purpose at half-price. “You can’t find a betterrun, safer marina than the

ones here on base,” said Cameron Brooks, MCCS marinas manager. “Our equipment is up-to-date and easy to access.” For saltier types, the base marinas have sailboats of various sizes — from single-person Sunfish to 19-foot Compacs. Sailors must complete a basic sailing certification class before they are allowed to rent. Basic and advanced classes run $75 for each 12hour session. The headwaters of Wallace Creek and lower portions of the New River usually provide all the wind necessary to put some motion in the ocean for sailboaters. Those who wish to try their hand at fishing can rent equipment suited for both salt and freshwater species. Both the Court-

house Bay and Gottschalk facilities have retail stores stocked with marine supplies, watersports equipment, beach necessities and fishing gear including bait. “We try to keep everything as cheap as possible because we know this is mainly for the young enlisted Marines and we don’t want to hit their wallets too hard,” said Brooks. “This is a place they can come to get out of the barracks and get out on the water.” The marinas on base are open Friday through Tuesday, from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. in the summer and from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in the winter. For more information, call Gottschalk Marina at 451-8307 and Courthouse Bay Marina at 450-7386.

Whitewater Rafting trip Aug. 19 through 21 Outdoor Adventures will be hosting a whitewater rafting trip on the New River in West Virginia this August. The trip will include two full days of whitewater rafting plus an overnight riverside campout. For more information, visit the Outdoor Adventures office in the Goettge Memorial Field House or call 451-1440. Varsity soccer Team Tryouts Monday and Tuesday, 7 p.m. Tryouts will be held this Monday and Tuesday aboard Camp Johnson for MCB Camp Lejeune’s varsity soccer team. For more information, call 546-1600 or e-mail Soccer tryouts Aug. 15 and 16, 7 p.m. The Camp Lejeune Varsity Soccer Team will be hosting tryouts Aug. 15 and 16. Tryouts will begin at 7 p.m. each day at the Camp Johnson soccer field. Players must attend all three sessions for consideration. Those who already attended the first sessions must come to the other two to be eligible. The fall soccer season runs September though November.

MCCS Youth Sports Clinics end with football camp RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor

People have many different ways of knowing when summer is almost over. For some, it’s the taxfree weekend and schoolsupply shopping. Others can just feel it in the air. For others still, it’s the start of football training camps that foreshadows the beginning of autumn. Marine Corps Community Services’ Youth Sports Division hosted the finale of their fourweek Youth Sports Clinic program with a football clinic at the Paradise Point soccer fields aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, using the scenic

area to teach children ages 5 to 16 the finer points of football. “With this camp, we wanted to go over first the fundamentals of football,” said Jernavis Draughn, head of Athletes Global and the football clinic. “We couldn’t tap into every position in depth, but we touched on and taught them techniques, different routes and then we introduced them to speed and agility training that they should receive when they play at the high school, college or even (professional level).” The goal was to give campers a chance to practice like their favorite football players and

compare themselves to those players. Counselors kept track of times in the drills, allowing campers to go back and compare their times to those in the National Football League. “We used the speed ladder this week, resistance weight bands, worked on lower hurdles (and taught) them proper running (form),” added Draughn. “We’re just going over the different speed and agility drills they go over at camp, so they get the opportunity to try it, get a time (and they can) say, ‘Well, Chad Ochocinco runs a whatever (in this).’” The children, who were split into two camps – the younger and older

kids – were one of the best groups that Draughn had ever worked with. He said that, despite the heat wave that hit MCB Camp Lejeune and triple digit temperatures throughout the week, not once did the campers complain. They happily went from drill to drill, making sure to ask for more tips to help them become better athletes, even when they didn’t need the extra assistance. “I thought we had a great group this week, a great mixture of young and older kids,” he said. “I think everyone was open to learning this week and just wanted to learn SEE CLINICS 7B

A day at the

Ocean piers offer great action, value JAMIE CAMERON

Special to The Globe


unrise over Onslow Bay is muted by overcast skies, but a hole in the clouds permits one dramatic shaft of light to illuminate the roiling sea. A stiff southeast breeze has put the water in an angry state of mind, and the tops of the waves slosh and foam in a messy, witch’s brew long before they crash against the beach. Just offshore, a small center console fishing boat with twin outboards bucks against the seas as it heads out of Bogue Inlet, and I am grateful to have both feet on solid ground. Solid ground in this case is the sturdy wooden planking of Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier, extending 1,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean. Anglers don’t have to stay home to mow the lawn just because the wind blows. Eastern North Carolina has a long tradition of ocean fishing piers; from the Seaview, Jolly Roger and Surf City piers on Topsail Island, to the Oceana and Bogue Inlet piers on Bogue Banks, opportunities abound for fishermen of any level of experience. For those unfamiliar with the joys of pier fishing, the opportunity to catch a mess of fish couldn’t be any easier. All of the piers have dedicated parking lots for fishermen and a bait and tackle shop

where you can buy a day pass for under $10, or a season pass before you step onto the fishing deck. The shops are well stocked with all the tackle and supplies needed, as well as ice, drinks and food, and restrooms (especially nice for young fishermen or those planning to stay for a long session). Most piers allow anglers to carry two rods onto the deck and savvy fishermen will rig one of those for bottom fishing and the other for casting lures to the schools of hungry bluefish and Spanish mackerel that pass by. Bottom fishing from a pier is simplicity at its best. Most fishermen use a two drop bottom rig, consisting of a short length of heavy leader material with a 1-ounce pyramid sinker tied to the end. Between the sinker and the swivel, two long-shanked bait hooks are tied off to the leader, separated by six to 10 inches so they won’t tangle. Bottom rigs can be made at home to suit your specific preferences, or purchased ready-made in the pier house or any bait and tackle shop. Baits for bottom fishing include shrimp, clams, strips of squid, mole crabs and pieces of fish. Once you’re baited up, cast the rig straight out and reel it the slack to maintain a tight line which will help you detect bites. Anglers who figure the biggest and best fish will be in the deeper water near the end

of the pier are often proven wrong. Some of the best fishing can be had close to the beach in the white wash. During the season, a wide variety of tasty bottom fish will pass within reach of pier including sea mullet, pompano, spot, black drum, flounder, croaker, blowfish and gray trout. In the event the bluefish or Spanish mackerel are running, your second rod, rigged for casting lures, will save precious time as the fast-moving schools swim by. Popular lures include plugs like Gotchas and JerkJiggers, and casting spoons such as Kastmasters and Strata Spoons. To counter the sharp teeth of these voracious predators, most anglers attach a length of heavy leader material to the main line before tying on the lure. Leaders can be 30 - to 50 - pound monofilament, fluorocarbon or wire and they definitely cut down on the number of breakoffs one might experience without them. Lack of experience should never be an excuse for not taking advantage of the great angling available on the piers. Most old-timers are more than willing to help the rookies rig up and fish effectively. As summer approaches, the best fishing of the year is upon us, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than to take part in the unique camaraderie and opportunity found on North Carolina’s ocean piers.

All-Marine Wrestling Team takes talents around the world RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor


here is rarely a dull moment in the life of a member of the AllMarine Wrestling Team. Take this summer as an example. The team has literally traveled all over the world, from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to Oklahoma to European countries like Georgia and Romania, all so the wrestlers can prepare for the Olympic Qualifiers that begin this December. The madness began two months ago, when the team took part in the World Team Trials in Oklahoma City, Okla., where wrestlers were able to put their skills to the test against some of the best in the world. There, Donovan DePatto earned a fourth place finish in the 60 kg weight class and Moises Hernandez earned a fifth place finish in the 96 kg weight class. And though AMWT head coach Dan Hicks was hoping for better results, he was still proud of the way the team handled themselves at the World Team Trials. “Of course we wished we would have done better,” he said. “But all in all, the Marines fought hard and represented the Corps with class and heart.” Last month, DePatto took to the mat in Batumi, Georgia, where he earned a silver medal in the 70 kg weight class at the Beach World Championships and became the first American wrestler to win a silver medal at the championships. More recently, Hicks was bestowed a great honor as he was named the 2010 Greco-Roman Wrestling Coach of the Year, just months after being named to the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association Hall of Fame for his time as a wrestler at the Naval Academy, where he became the only four-time heavyweight finalist in the 107-year history of the EIWA. But Hicks, one of the more humble Marines, severely downplayed the award.

“All it really means is that I am somehow connecting with the (United States) Senior Athletes as they are the ones who voted,” he said. “I feel like my number one priority as a coach is to take care of my athletes, just as my number one priority as a Marine leader is to take care of my Marines … Their welfare, training and discipline is your responsibility. That is almost exactly the same for a coach. If you take care of your Marines, they will take care of you. And if you, as a coach, take care of your athletes, they will take care of you as well.” The AMWT also just finished their first All-Marine Wrestling Camp at Camp Ripley, Minn., which Hicks called “an astounding success.” More than 130 high school wrestlers from five surrounding states attended the five-day intensive camp that used AllMarine wrestlers as the camp coaches and instructors. It was the first such camp the AMWT has ever done and it won’t be the last – plans are already being made to hold the camp again next July. Just last week, Hicks and Hernandez were in Romania to compete in the Ion Corneau Memorial Tournament, where Hernandez will compete in the 96 kg weight class, which will mark the end of a busy summer for the AMWT. But, that will soon give away to an equally busy fall. In addition to preparing for the Olympic Qualifiers, the AMWT will spend time preparing for an open tournament aboard MCB Camp Lejeune Sept. 10 and the All-Marine Camp beginning Oct. 1, where Marines from MCB Camp Lejeune, Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Camp Smedley D. Butler, Okinawa, Japan and more will come together to train and prepare for the next year’s tournaments. A wrestler’s work is never done.

A military child catches a pass from the quarterback during the Marine Corps Community Services’ Youth Sports Division four-week Youth Sports Clinic at the Paradise Point soccer fields aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Friday. CLINICS FROM 3B football. This (was) a good group of kids who loved football. I’m happy about that … They were competitive, they wanted to learn. It was hot, but there were no complaints. Both groups were great. We’ve had no problems with them.” Following the speed and agility drills, the campers took part in one-onone passing competitions that pitted the campers against one another and allowed them to review the numerous passing routes they learned at the camp, ranging from the ‘fly’ and ‘hitch’ routes to the more advanced ‘seven’ route. The camp ended with a friendly scrimmage between the campers, as they battled one another and the blazing sun, which would occasionally slip behind a cloud and give campers a brief reprieve from the heat. The campers’ hard work in the heat was something that brought a huge smile to Draughn’s face, as he loved seeing the passion for the sport grow in every one of the young men. He said one of the camp’s goals was to cultivate a love for the sport and to help prepare the campers to succeed in it. “In general with (Athletes Global)

camps, we want to teach them work ethic, what it takes to be good in this sport and the type of training you’ll need to receive,” he said. “You’re not only going to have to learn the sports training, but you’re going to have to receive the speed training, the agility training, the core training - those types of aspects make you a complete athlete in whatever sport you play … You get the speed and agility training to take your entire game to the next level. As long as we can give them the fundamentals and introduce them to speed and agility training and what the pros receive, that’s our goal.” Many considered not just the football clinic, but all of the youth sport clinics to be a huge success. Draughn had such a great time that he already has his eyes set on next year. “I want to thank Camp Lejeune (and Marine Corps Community Services) for allowing us to come out here and train their kids. It’s been great. Hopefully we’ll be back next summer ... We’ve received a lot of positive feedback. It’s been a great year for all our camps.” For more information on Youth Sports, call 451-2177 or 451-2159 or visit

very single Marine on the battlefield or in garrison have two things in common: they are all indeed Marines, but they also have all gone through some sort of combat school following their time in recruit training. Be it the Infantry Training Battalion or the Marine Combat Training Battalion, every Marine has stepped through the gates of either Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton or Camp Geiger to learn how, despite respective military occupational specialties, to fight in this country’s greatest fighting force. Col. Timothy S. Mundy, the man who has overseen half of this training, that of the

School of Infantry - East, for the past two years, relinquished his position to Col. Barry J. Fitzpatrick during a change of com command ceremony aboard Camp Geiger, Aug. 5. “If you know me, you know I can’t stop talking about how proud I am of this school and the approximate 20,000 students that come through here annually,” said Mundy. “This school, these instructors, these Marines, they all perform an incredible function for this country, and it’s been a real privilege to work and serve with fine Marines like yourselves.” Coming into the position of commanding officer of SOI-East in June of 2009, Mundy has been at the helm for a variety of improvements and changes in curriculum designed to better prepare the Marines for whatever they may face in the Fleet Marine Force. Before coming into his recent position, Mundy served as deputy chief of plans for Plans Division, United States Special Operations Command. Following his change of command, Mundy will transfer to 2nd Marine Division. “I don’t have to tell you how motivated I am to be taking charge here,” said Fitzpatrick. “Being deployed for the past year, I’ve seen the end products of the Marines coming out of here, and these young Marines are doing astounding things out there.” Deploying with I Marine Expeditionary Force ( Fo r w a r d ) in 2009,

Fitzpatrick has previously served as assistant chief of staff for operations before being chosen to become the 14th commanding of officer of SOI-East. His career began in May of 1986 upon graduation from the United States Naval Academy, where he was assigned to 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, aboard Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., prior to being transferred to the 1st Marine Division. He served as a platoon commander where he participated in Operation Earnest Will in the Persian Gulf. “I will keep doing what (Mundy) and our predecessors have been doing, because as it has proved time and time again it works,” said Fitzpatrick. “For those of you in training, we will continue to provide the best warrior training in the world to keep on writing the pages of history - that I can promise you.” Mundy was also awarded the Legion of Merit, presented to him by his father, retired Gen. Carl E. Mundy, 30th commandant of the Marine Corps. As Mundy continues his Marine Corps career across the river at 2nd Marine Division, he may rest easy knowing that Fitzpatrick will do all he can to ensure the Marines receive the best training for whatever their futures hold. However, it is unlikely Mundy will completely put SOI-East in his past. “I am proud now, and I will be forever proud,” said Mundy. “I’ll always be watching this school from afar.”

After last quarter’s culinary competition, featuring some famous flavors of Mardi Gras, Marine culinary specialists and their civilian counterparts competed in the second quarter Culinary Team of the Quarter Competition at Mess Hall 211 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, July 26. This quarter’s theme was one of America’s favorites – barbecue. The winning team, Cpl. Jesus Orozco and Lance Cpl. Victor Mata, both with Food Service Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, won the prestigious People’s Choice Award. Orozco and Mata said they expected to win – almost as if they had to – out of commemoration for Staff Sgt. Jef-

frey Bennett, who was killed recently in a motorcycle accident. “Staff Sgt. Bennett was in our section in the company,” said Mata. “When he passed away, we were told ‘He would have wanted you to win this competition.’ It put some pressure on us, but at the same time, that pressure was what we needed in order win. We needed to show that you have to push to win. I’m happy with the outcome.” Their winning menu featured lipsmacking ham and pineapple kabobs as an appetizer; mouth-watering honey ribs with a side of grilled corn on the cob, twice baked potatoes and ‘California’ cole slaw for an entrée; and fried ice cream for dessert. “Lance Cpl. Mata (and I), worked very hard on this,” said Orozco. “It SEE CULINARY 3C

‘Mission accomplished’ for Lincoln Military Housing

DPS: ‘New name, same mission’


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Since 2001, Lincoln Military Housing has developed or managed more than 31,000 homes across the U.S., keeping to the highest living standards for service members and their families. One of the first housing areas completed, Heroes Manor, was presented to the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune community and invited in the first residents, the Wilson family, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony aboard the base, Aug. 4. Sgt. Jared Wilson, a motor transport operator with 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, said it felt great to finally have a new home. “It was a long wait, but it was well worth it,” said Wilson. “We’re very excited. We moved into the home (Aug. 1) and it is beautiful. We love everything – the kitchen, the bathroom and the garage – it’s all very well done.” By December 2012, 260 more homes are scheduled to be finished and another 300 units are scheduled to be finished by December 2014. The homes have six different floor plans with the three and four-bedroom homes ranging from 1,811 to 2,237 square feet. The Lincoln Military Housing development will provide Marines and sailors with the extra benefits and amenities they deserve. SEE HOUSING 2C

As of July 3, the Department of Public Safety for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Installations – East officially changed the department title to Security and Emergency Services, according to DPS officials. The DPS is a state or local government that serves to assist the base and installations spanning along the East Coast in their services by providing policy and budgetary oversight and technical services and support for many public safety functions. After the name change, the Safety Division and SES have become separate entities, said Ronald Sarmento, deputy safety director for MCB Camp Lejeune and MCIEAST. However, SES will maintain its functionality and the two divisions will continue working closely with each other. “The reason was that the safety department fell under DPS and there were three divisions,” said Sarmento. “We became a special staff so we’re no longer considered the DPS.” The SES includes Fire and Emergency Services, all types of rescue services and hazardous material response, as well as ambulance and Emergency Medical Services. Also, the Provost Marshal’s Office is included, along with physical security, crime prevention, suppression and investigation, uniformed patrol and response, and the Emergency Base Brig. Since the change is in its ‘infancy’ stage, there is currently being a formal order being drafted for it, Sarmento said. Within in the next few weeks, regulations will be revised SEE DPS 2C

NHCL Nutrition & Wellness in the Workplace seminar CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


t a popular restaurant out in town, among the various sandwiches, burgers and miscellaneous appetizers, there is a dish called the Southern Smokehouse Burger with Ancho Chile Barbeque. Layered with a variety of vegetables and meat products smothered in sauce, this hamburger is certainly a filling lunch or dinner meal – considering how it alone is over the daily recommended calorie intake. The average calorie diet one should maintain for a healthy body is 2,000, but the Southern Smokehouse Burger rests at 2,290 calories and is only marketed as being one meal. With calorie portions such as that, it is no wonder how many people over-indulge and start packing on the pounds, especially due to the fact the burger is also more than twice the daily fat intake, which is 65 grams per day, at 139 grams. “Portion sizes have dramatically increased in the American diet over the past few decades,” said Courtney Flynn, a clinical dietician with Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. “With meals that drastically go over

the daily recommended calorie diet becoming more prevalent, it is very important to know what you are eating.” For nearly two hours, Flynn and two other clinical dieticians from NHCL educated attendants of the Nutrition & Wellness in the Workplace seminar on proper dieting habits as well as how to keep physically fit outside of eating, at the Jacksonville-Onslow Chamber of Commerce, Aug. 3. “We have a series of summer seminars in which community members give us suggestions on what they would like to see presented,” said Mona Padrick, president of the chamber. “Occasionally, the naval hospital helps out with a few of our classes, such as the (post-traumatic stress disorder) class we held last year. They’ve been very helpful in the health-related seminars we’ve held and we’re glad they’re here assisting us again.” Covering a wide range of dietary concerns from healthy snacking at work, proper meal portion sizes and weight-loss tips, the three dieticians provided an abundance of materials to the attendants all with the aim of healthier living. Flynn, Erica Cushion and Lt. j.g. Melinda Villarreal provided a range of facts from the break-down of what a recommended meal should consist of

DPS FROM 1C and clarified identifying the separate staffs, a new policy letter and other small changes to the DPS. “We provide the same support and nothing has changed,” said Sarmento. “It’s just a matter of the infrastructure of the department itself – terminology and name. It’s more of an administrative change than anything.” HOUSING FROM 1C “We are very excited to be here aboard Camp Lejeune,” said Connie DuFour, regional marketing and training director with Lincoln Military Housing. “We have been in this business serving military families since 2001 and it’s a good feeling to see this all come together after years of planning. Today was the first day that a lot of us walked through these doors for the first time and they are absolutely amazing. Seeing an actual young family, like the Wilsons, with a newborn baby makes it so much more real for us.” Jim Brady, vice president and general manger with Lincoln Military Housing, said he was proud to be a part of the team that made it all possible for the Marines and sailors aboard the base. “We delivered as good as a house that you’re going to find anywhere in the Marine Corps,” said Brady. “The services with it are going to follow and when our club house opens, it’s going to be a fully-functioning community. We really think this is the family environment that anybody would be looking for.” Jamie Taylor, regional housing director with LMH, said it was hard to describe the feeling she gets being able to help service members in a way that no one else can. “It feels so wonderful (to be a part of this),” said Taylor. “I feel that the families are going to come here with an expectation and we’re going to far exceed it. Everywhere else they go, they’re going to be comparing it to the Lincoln Homes aboard Camp Lejeune. I’m very proud of that.”

The average “large” order at a fast food hamburger restaurant averages around 1,550 calories – more than half of the recommended daily calorie diet. to eye-opening information, such as how one Otis Spunkmeyer muffin is four times the amount of the recommended daily grain intake. “(Navy) Capt. (Daniel) Zinder (commanding officer of NHCL) is always looking for ways for the hospital to get active in the community, regardless of military affiliation,” said Villarreal. “Seminars like these are great opportunities for us to serve the community as well as showing them

we help the non-military families off base.” Calorie counting and watching fat intake might be trivial for some, but as Marines and sailors aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, it is expected that each individual keep in good physical condition – something that is not easily attained by eating fast food for lunch and an Southern Smokehouse Burger for dinner, at least tripling your daily calorie diet.

Eagle scout contributes to WWBN-East barracks CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Some of them have literally given an arm and a leg for their country in the defense of its freedom. In comparison, what could one 18-year-old boy hope to give back in return? This was the problem Ben Luhrsen faced when planning his Eagle Scout project, the final step for a member of the Boy Scouts of America to take to reach the coveted rank of Eagle Scout. To become an Eagle Scout, one must perform an outstanding community service for a specific group of people. With Luhrsen growing up under the wing of his father, a lieutenant colonel in the Marine Corps, his choice was an easy one. Yet how was he to help service members in a way they haven’t been helped before? “I went to (Wounded Warrior Battalion – East) and asked them what they might find beneficial to the Marines,” said Luhrsen. “One of the things they mentioned was how they had a kayak instructor and around 30 kayaks, but no convenient place for the wounded Marines to use them.” Luhrsen concluded that he would construct a trail and launching area for kayaks at the new WWBN-East barracks, next to Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. A presentation was held during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the trail and launching area, as well as Luhrsen’s promotion to Eagle Scout at the barracks, Aug. 6. Among the various therapeutic activities as part of the Warrior Athletic Reconditioning Program, kayaking is one of the many facets used in aiding in the Marines’ recuperation. “Kayaking helps the Marines rebuild their balance as well as their strength

in their back and arms,” said Lt. Col. Nicholas Davis, commanding officer of WWBN-East. “There are already several of our Marines who kayak, and just by close proximity, participation will definitely increase.” This drove Luhrsen to eventually build a trail and sand beach leading from the new WWBN-East barracks down to the Northeast Creek, a tributary of the New River, for a closer port to launch kayaks out of. However, this show of kindness proved to be a daunting task, nearly two years in the making. “The actual work part of the project took just two days,” said Luhrsen. “However, it was the planning portion that was the difficult part. It took one and a half years in planning, gathering donations and sitting before environmental impact boards – just getting through all the red tape for something to be built aboard a military installation.” The end result rests in a woodchip trail leading down to a sandy portion of the North East Creek bank, where wounded Marines and sailors can utilize the stockpile of kayaks for both recreation and therapy. The ribbon-cutting ceremony, which was held inside the common area of the barracks due to inclement weather, included Col. Daniel J. Lecce, commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Sgt. Maj. William Rice, sergeant major for MCB Camp Lejeune, along with Davis. Prior to the ceremony, Luhrsen was promoted to Eagle Scout, a rank that fewer than four percent of all Boy Scouts attain, in the traditional Eagle Court of Honor, the project for the wounded warriors being the last accomplishment needed for promotion. “So many folks say they want to help the troops, but a lot don’t know what to

Hopefully the wounded Marines and sailors aboard the project he has done is a gateway for the base, just a little perseverance and future improvements for the wounded goodwill – something that is a foundawarriors.” tion for others to build upon.

National Immunization Awareness Month keeps service members, families informed PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The Department of Defense is taking part in the fifth annual National Immunization Awareness Month sponsored by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This year DOD’s NIAM, held in August, with the theme “Immunization Health and the DOD Family.” Immunizations and vaccines are the equivalent of swords and shields in the fight against diseases and illnesses. Immunizations are protective measures that have saved the lives of many and this proactive nature has kept people safe from vaccine-preventable diseases. “It’s very important to prevent disease and it’s more effective than treating disease. It is also more cost effective and it’s better all around for the population,” said Navy Lt. Crystal Dailey, head of preventive medicine and naval health officer with Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. “Im-

munization is a lifelong process. We start immunizations from birth and people (continue to) receive immunizations to maintain good health.” The CDC and Federal Drug Administration recommends 17 routine vaccines for people of all ages to protect against infectious diseases such as measles, diphtheria and rubella, which are common diseases found around the world. The requirements and recommendations for individuals to receive specific vaccinations are periodically reviewed and updated by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices with the CDC. Recently, the CDC and the FDA have issued updates and recommendations for a broad range of individuals according to specific age groups, gender, medical history and geographical location. During NIAM, outreach and education events will be held in various places such as NHCL and theMain Corps Exchange aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, said

Cornelius Rowe, a health system specialist and regional analyst with Military Vaccine Agency. The goal of NIAM is to inform beneficiaries about the services available for them. This exchange of information brings awareness to people so they receive the proper care recommended or required by organizations such as the military or school systems. “This month is allocated to immunization month because it’s extremely important to focus on preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles,” said Dailey. “Keeping service members and their families safe and healthy is important, but good health is also essential to maintaining the readiness of our military.” Department of Defense beneficiaries and health care personnel can obtain specific information on recommended immunizations from their health care provider or NHCL’s immunization clinic by calling 450-4648.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. CULINARY FROM 1C took a lot of effort for both of us and it was nothing but teamwork the whole time. When he had to pick up my slack, I was doing the same for him.” When the team began prepping for the barbecue-themed competition, they automatically knew what to cook. “Everybody loves barbecued ribs,” said Orozco. “I learned to cook it slowly at 200 degrees and glaze it every 40 minutes. It gets so tender, the meat just falls off the bone.” Cpl. Devin Lynch and his teammate, Cpl. Andrew Medlin, also representing CLR-27, came in a close second with their ‘New Age Barbecue’ menu. As an appetizer, the duo made deviled eggs from an original recipe, pulled pork sandwiches with black pepper, vinegar sauce and green onion slaw as an entrée and chilled watermelon sundaes for dessert. “Those guys earned it and they really did a good job on their meal,” said Lynch. “(If I compete again), winning first place will be the motivation to win.” Gunnery Sgt. Morris Mayfield III,

the Marine liaison for Mess Hall 521 with CLR-27, said the competition was an opportunity for the younger Marines to come out and display their culinary expertise. “It was a good competition,” said Mayfield. “Marines are very competitive amongst each other and it reminded me of my younger days, bringing back that competitive nature and taking pride in what we do.” Mayfield added that Marines overall are a ‘prideful bunch,’ and that trait should be true even for troops in the culinary field. “We’re Marines first and they showed their pride for their unit,” said Mayfield. “Despite the situation going on at Mess Hall 521 with the loss of Staff Sgt. Bennett, the Marines still maintained their focus in doing what they have to do. I know he would have been proud of them.” Orozco and Mata added that they couldn’t have won without the help of their production managers and pure teamwork. Now, they’re on standby to compete in the Culinary Team of the Year Competition this winter.

Military children watch in awe as magician Jeff Jones performs a trick during the Children’s Summer Reading Program finale at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Friday.

he said. A flick of his wrist sent confetti flying, as well as a dove that appeared from thin air, and the children and adults marveled in delight. The magic words, “I love Camp Lejeune,” screamed by everyone in the room, prompted Jones to pull, not only an American flag, but an American flag on a pole out of a bag no bigger than his hand. While his tricks were impressive, it was the results of the SRP that really left people in shock. “We had a good response from kids, teens and adults,” said Jana Guitar, programs supervisor. “It’s been phenomenal. We had a wonderful turn out and participation.” Though the library staff set the bar high for the 420 participants to read at least a combined 180,000 minutes, the children and teens far exceeded expectations, reading a total of 184,027 minutes, or 3,068 hours with more reading logs still being turned in. “The incentive prizes and turning in their reading logs kept kids motivated,” noted Guitar. “When (the kids) come to events and turn in their reading logs SEE MAGIC 7D

‘Cowboys & Aliens’ face off in sci-fi,western adventure Now playing at Camp Lejeune “MONTE CARLO” (PG) “Monte Carlo” is a romantic comedy for teenage girls who are not interested in going to see “Transformers.” The story centers on three young women who are on a disaster filled vacation in Paris. However, when one of the girls is mistaken for a British princess, things start to look better as they are whisked away for a fantasy vacation in Monte Carlo. Selena Gomez (“Ramona and Beezus,” “The Perfect Game”) stars as Grace, a high school graduate, who saved all through high school for her dream vacation to Paris, only to find that the City of Lights has lost its luster. Katie Cassidy (“Taken,” “Nightmare on Elm Street”) co-stars as Emma Perkins, Grace’s best friend, who comes along for the adventure. The two friends soon find out that their long anticipated dream trip to Paris turns out not to be as they had imagined. Leighton Meester (“The Roommate,” “Date Night”) plays Grace’s uptight future stepsister, Meg, who is along for the ride to act as her chaperone. When they all decide to take a break from their lousy tour, they ditch their tour guides and duck into the lobby of a luxury hotel, where Grace is

mistaken for a spoiled, world-reknowned princess, named Cordelia Winthrop Scott, (also portrayed by Gomez). Before they get the chance to reveal their true identities, the trio find themselves on a whirlwind adventure to Monte Carlo, attending an auction and charity ball. All of a sudden, their vacation becomes infused with adventure, glamour and lots of paparazzi.A chance for an international romance is not far behind. However, when a million dollar necklace goes missing, Grace and her friends must scramble to find it before the auction is ruined and their identities are exposed. Also appearing are Andie McDowell (“Inconceivable,” “Beauty Shop”) as Pam, Grace’s mother; Brett Cullen (“Red Dawn”) as Robert, her stepfather; Corey Monteith (TV’s “Glee”) as Owen, Emma’s boyfriend at home; and Luke Brace as Riley, a backpacker from Australia and Meg’s love interest. Thomas Bezucha (“The Family Stone,” “Big Eden”) directed this little European getaway, a recycled fare that takes most of the ingredients from other previously shown movies. “Monte Carlo” is a light-hearted diet for all the fans of Selena Gomez. Now playing in Jacksonville “COWBOYS & ALIENS” (PG-13)

But when the desolate city is about to experience an attack by marauders from the sky and these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known, the stranger they rejected is now their only hope for salvation. As Jake slowly starts to remember who he is and where he has been, he realizes that he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force who are trying to take over Earth and enslave humanity. With the help of Ella, an elusive and mysterious woman, played by Olivia Wilde (“TRON: Legacy”), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents, including townsfolk, cowboys and Apache warriors, who are now all in danger of annihilation.

Chaplain’s Corner


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

One of the most inspiring messages we have received from scripture is from the gospel of Matthew 5:14-19. We learn that each and every one of us has a unique and special calling to shine our light, the light of course that emanates from within and comes from God. In this passage, Jesus tells his disciples that they are the light of the world. This is a tremendous blessing and responsibility. Sometimes, though, we don’t feel like we have that much to offer. Young people in particular often think that they do not have much to share until they get older. For whatever reason, at whatever age, we often feel more like a match than a floodlight. Yet, both the match and the floodlight dispel darkness. Light is light. Those of us who have been at sea know that if one falls overboard, it takes just the small, saltwater-activated “chem light” from a life vest to make the person visible from the distant ship and thus be rescued. A small light can save a life. Light gives hope and encouragement. There is a story of a small boy who was in an alley with a broken piece of glass reflecting sunlight into a third story window. A man came up to the boy, reprimanding him gruffly and saying, “What mischief are you up to now?” The little boy replied, “Nothing, sir, but I have a crippled brother living up there on that floor. No sunlight ever gets into his room. The only sunlight he ever sees is what I reflect from this little piece of glass.” People of faith understand that we are the light of the world only insofar as we reflect the light of the Lord. Yes, we know he is the light of the world. What Jesus is saying is that whosoever reflects his light, no matter to what degree, reflects him. Even though the light we put out may not be great in comparison to the great luminaries of the ages, it can save people’s lives. We can offer encouragement, give hope, and share a blessing. You never know what a small bit of kindness, mercy, compassion, care and love can bring others. The light of God that we reflect may be the only light that some people see. Even though others may give huge amounts of money to great causes, even though some have traveled to distant lands as missionaries and humanitarians, even though there are those who set a worthy example by feeding and clothing the poor, that does not negate the fact that we can make sure our light shines before our brothers and sisters, to our peers and friends, to our co-workers and acquaintances and to our fellow Marines and sailors. The good we share is the light of the world. Let your light shine. May his light illumine us all that we may share his love and glory to others.

Teen SRP finishes in sci-fi style AMY BINKLEY

Carolina Living editor


o boldly go where no man has gone before is a lofty and idealistic goal, but the teenagers of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune aren’t afraid to succeed, fail or discover something new, especially within themselves. The Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard MCB Camp Lejeune changed into a new world to be discovered during the science-fiction-themed finale of the Teen Summer Reading Program, Friday. “This bunch tends to like sci-fi,” said Fran Bing, youth services director at the library. “We have a really cohesive group and a common bond in our geekness.” Huddled in their makeshift headquarters, the faithful participants gathered for a night of playing games, building

spaceships and talking of all things nerdy. “It’s one of those things where you can’t call yourself a nerd if you don’t have a favorite sci-fi show or movie,” said Nick Ciaccio, who has attended the teen SRP for several years. “It’s the cornerstone of nerd obsession.” Lauren Estep, a devoted teen SRP, was quick to defend the title. “Nobody uses nerd as a derogatory term here,” she explained. “We’re with our own people.” Though the word may bring to mind skewed images depicted by Hollywood, the teens are far from the social outcasts of their peers. They are the rising leaders. “What happens in a lot of library programs is they try to decide what the kids want to do instead of getting input from the kids themselves,” noted Bing. “Here, they decide. It has been their blood, sweat and tears in this program. They planned it all.”

From a midsummer night’s murder-mystery to an Alice in Wonderland tea party, the teens have shown incredible growth, creativity and loyalty to the SRP. “They do everything they need to do to make it successful,” said Sean Pittman, youth services assistant. “That’s what the Teen Summer Reading Program is about.” Reading has been a priority with some more than other, but all of the young participants made efforts to increase their information intake. “When you have teens that have read more than 7,500 minutes, you know it’s a pretty good program,” Bing pointed out. “This is the most successful teen Summer Reading Program we’ve ever had.” Another factor in the program’s accomplishments, according to the teens, is the relationship and trust Bing has established with them. “She takes into consideration what we want to do,” said Estep. “She really cares about us.

We get to do a lot of fun stuff.” Ciaccio credits the program for providing a place to spend time with his peers who are coming from the same military background to discuss varying interests. “I get to come here and hang out with my friends, my fellow nerds,” he joked. “A lot of kids our age don’t realize it’s a great place to meet people as long as you don’t come with a bad attitude.” The summer may be winding down, but the teens already have plans in the works for their book club, which will begin next month. “We read a lot of good books,” said Estep. “But if you’re not willing to have fun, don’t bother coming.” The teens quickly admitted that they may not fit the normal roles of others their age, but, then again, what is normal?

Joe Nichols will be one of many country performers at this year’s North Carolina Freedom Festival at the Deppe Agriculture and Music Pavilion, Sept. 24.

Country concert to boost support

Corpsmen Memorial, USO to benefit from proceeds

SGT. BRYAN PETERSON Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


y the end of the day on Sept. 24, Lauren Peterson hopes to have raised the remaining balance needed to pay the rest of the hefty price tag for the Corpsmen Memorial Foundation bronze statue. The monument will be placed in the Lejeune Memorial Gardens near the Camp Johnson entrance, where the Navy’s Field Medical Training Battalion is located, and at a $500,000 cost, only about $50,000 has been raised so far for the memorial. Peterson decided almost five months ago, after she attended a Military Order of the Purple Heart Beirut Memorial Chapter 642 meeting, that she would raise the rest of the money. She began organizing the first North Carolina Country Music Freedom Festival to be held at the Deppe Agriculture and Music Pavilion in Jacksonville – with major acts like country star Joe Nichols. “Doing things like car washes, golf tournaments and stuff like that are great,” said the busy mother of two. “But when you’re trying to raise a half-million

dollars, you have to do more on a bigger level.” Her passion to help raise the money comes directly from her husband, Petty Officer 1st Class Thomas Peterson, a decorated Navy corpsman who was badly wounded in Afghanistan after an improvised explosive device struck the patrol he was on. His best friend, also a corpsman, died that day, but she said it was the corpsmen that kept her husband and the rest of the Marines alive, who drives her the most to help out the foundation. In September 2009, one of Peterson’s husband’s best friends was killed by an IED. “(Petty Officer 3rd Class) Ben Castiglione, or Doc Stiggy as we called him, was killed when he was trying to set up a forward aid station,” she explained. “Stiggy and my husband thought it would be good to teach the Marines some quick lifesaving skills, just in case. Because of them, the Marines were able to save my husband’s life. Corpsmen go where the Marines go and we need to honor them.” With a degree in marketing, promoting concerts is nothing new to Peterson. She used to put small concerts together at venues with local bands, but she has never done

Doing things like car washes, golf tournaments and stuff like that are great, but when you’re trying to raise a halfmillion dollars, you have to do more on a bigger level. Lauren Peterson, event organizer

anything of this magnitude before. She and her husband used to attend big country concerts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where they grew up. She wanted to challenge herself, so she came up with the idea of putting on a concert with nationally recognized country artists. The Corpsmen Memorial Foundation immediately accepted. “Concerts draw in a lot of people and with what we are trying to do, I thought this would be a great event to raise the rest of the money for the memorial,” said Peterson. “From the start, I haven’t been alone to set this up.” Peterson locked on a WRNS 95.1 to help spread the word. She then went to the Deppe Agriculture and Music Pavilion where the staff gave her a few pointers to help get her started. “(Deppe Agriculture and Music Pavilion staff) gave me tips on who to call and contact as far as getting the country sing-

ers here,” said Peterson. “From there, I have received help from other people and organizations.” This is when retired Sgt. Maj. Joe Houle stepped in. Though retired, he still keeps active in the community. Currently, he is the director of operations for the Museum of the Marine, member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Beirut Memorial Chapter 642 and chair of the USO North Carolina Jacksonville Advisory Committee. Houle said local Onslow County businesses have been very receptive so far. Car dealerships and furniture stores are just some area businesses that have sponsored the event, but they still need more to pull the event off. “The local businesses are great - they’ve been trying to do what they can to help out,” said Houle, who is also helping out with filling vendor space. “Unfortunately, it is toward

the end of the year, and most companies’ (advertising and sponsorship) money has already been spent. But, we are not giving up.” With expectations of drawing more than 5,000 people, Peterson is marketing the concert, via media outlets and word-of-mouth, to areas such as Wilmington, New Bern, Jacksonville, Greenville and even as far out as Raleigh. With prices set at $30 in advance for general admission, prices increase to $40 at the door. For VIP tickets, which cost $75, concert goers will have the opportunity to have, according to Peterson, the “best seats in the house.” With the event starting at 11 a.m., gates will open at 9 a.m. to give concert goers a chance to get refreshments and the opportunity to find

a seat. The event will kick off with a color guard, a flyover and a Gold Star presentation to the parents of Castiglione, which honors the parents of fallen service members who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Peterson urges country music listeners and those who want to get out and enjoy themselves to attend the concert for a worthy cause, September 24. “Aside from Marines, not too many people now about the sacrifices and hardships (Fleet Marine Force) corpsmen go through,” said Peterson, also a former sailor. All the revenue from this concert, after the bills are paid, will fully benefit the Corpsmen Memorial Foundation and the USO. “We already have a well-known country artist, Joe Nichols attending, along with American Idol season nine top five contestant, Aaron Kelly,” she said. “It’s going to be a great time.” For more information, e-mail her at lauren@ or visit

Lending Peace of Mind

Sharon Reagan of atlantic Bay Mortgage serves areas’s mortgage needs AdvertoriAl by StAciA SydoriAk With a father and husband retired from the United States Marine Corps after decades of service, Sharon Reagan is familiar with the military lifestyle. Sharon grew up in Jacksonville and after marrying her Marine husband and has continued to flourish in the community. Her familiarity with the military lifestyle and the Camp Lejeune area are the icing on the cake in terms of her knowledge of the area. Add this to 30 years of real estate experience, and Sharon becomes a truly valuable resource for military homebuyers and sellers in the Jacksonville area. In part this is because she understands the needs of military personnel from her own personal experience. But this is also due to the way she runs her business, the Jacksonville Branch of Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group. Sharon takes great pride in providing her clients with the finest in personal service. The fact that around 80 percent of her business comes from referrals attests to the quality relationship she forms with her clients. An additionalAtlantic Bay location on Western Boulevard is operated by Sharon’s husband, Lynn Reagan, who is a retired U.S. Marine with 24 dedicated years of service in the Corps. The branch usually operates with a total of four people, which keeps business personal. In her own office, Sharon has been impressed with the work of a fellow military spouse, Jena Faulkner. Jena has worked as a processor for Sharon for the past six years, and has perfected the art of helping individuals and families through the process of buying a new home. “Jena helps homebuyers through the whole process. Anytime they want to speak to a processor they can. Every call is returned every day, usually within the hour,” says Sharon. Jena herself speaks to the ways in which she can help make sense of any unexpected bumps in the road. “A problem is almost never

permanent. We let people know that we understand the situation, and we can get through it and move forward. There is usually a fix to any problem, and it’s likely a very simple solution. Usually it is something we have seen before and that we’ve been through many times. Any problems that surface, 10 to 1 we can overcome them,” says Jena. Though there are sometimes those bumps in the road, Sharon and her staff work hard to make the process of homebuying smooth. “We talk about our files every day. If there are any problems we try to tackle them head on, so we can tell consumers up front what they can expect,” says Sharon. This approach breeds a sense of trust and commitment between Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group and its consumers,fromstarttofinish.Infact, the company provides consumers with all the information, resources and assistance they need, no matter what the circumstances. It all begins with prequalifying. Sharon insists that it is essential for homebuyers to get pre-qualified before starting their home search-so they know the price range they should be looking at.. Sharon is happy to provide this service in person, over the phone, or over the internet. “In ten minutes, you will know what you can spend. It’s the best thing you can possibly do. You don’t waste any time looking at homes you aren’t prequalified for,” says Sharon. Recently she has even been able to pre-qualify military personnel calling from Afghanistan, Iraq and Japan. When pre-qualifying consumers, a credit check is always necessary. At Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, Sharon examines all three of the credit bureaus so she is positive she is getting a complete picture of consumers’ credit scores. For those who may have less than perfect credit, Sharon has many helpful hints for working through it. “Wedosomuchforourcustomers.

If there is something they need to work on, we will give them a copy of their credit reports and spend as much time with them as we need to in order to give them the answers they need. We save a lot of loans by helping people clean up their credit. Life happens, and many people aren’t sure how to fix their credit. We can help them try and structure it. I have been doing this a really long time, and I know what works,” says Sharon. Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group works with almost every loan program.OnceSharonhasgottenthe process going, consumers can head out on a road trip with a REALTOR® tofindtheirnewhome.Sharonandher staff at Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group will be there through it all, and will also accompany you to the closing. She knows that having someone experienced there helps buyers feel more informed and secure. She also presents the new homeowners with a gift at the closing. When it comes down to it, it is this devotion and care that makes working with Sharon and Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group an unbeatable experience. “We make this process as seamless as possible. We all go above and beyond the call of duty for our customers to give them the best service. If you call me ten times a day, I will answer ten times a day. I have taken applications in the car on the weekends, on trips and even

delivered documents personally to CampGeigerwhenaMarinewasnot able to leave the base to sign them,” says Sharon. The Better Business Bureau has awarded the Atlantic Bay MortgageGroup an A+ rating, the highest a business can receive. While this score reflects the businesses accessibility and ease of process— two accessible locations with inhouse processing and underwriting, asecuredpaperlesssystemandquick responses and approvals—it also reflects a commitment to consumers that goes beyond great business practice. “I love my job, and I still like the fact that I can sit down and work with folks one-on-one. The more confident they feel, the better I can do my job and the easier the process is,” says Sharon. In particular, she hopes that future military consumers won’t forget the special place she holds in her heart for them. “Veterans are very special to me. As a military daughter and wife, it was my life. I will do everything I can to help them,” says Sharon.

Welcome to the family, glad you’re here


love my families. Yes, I have more than one. I actually have several. First, of course, is my DNA family. This is the group of people who shares the same shade of blue eyes, last name and easily-sunwith Amy Binkley Carolina Living editor burned skin that I have. They’re the first ones I call when I have fantastic news and also receive the brunt of my frustrations on days when nothing seems to go right. They love me because they have to. They like me because they’re saints. Then, there is my friend family. These are the ones who I have chosen to let close and share life with. They aren’t obligated to tell me I’m pretty, funny or that coloring my hair blonde was a bad idea in college. Most of them I’ve known for years. All of them I feel like I’ve known forever. I also have my work family, my church family, my extended we’re-friends-but-not-too-close family and many subcategories of all of them. Those of you involved with the military in some shape or fashion are also part of an exclusive family. There’s the big umbrella of the armed forces family which divides into the separate branches that then divides into forces, divisions, groups, companies, platoons, squadrons and a host of other things that confuse me. The one thing I have found constant in every family, no matter how odd or similar it may be, is the one thing

New to Me

I believe keeps the world functioning on a semi-normal level – the feeling of belonging. Knowing that your existence matters to at least a few people on this planet is why most men and women list “family” as one of their top three priorities. From our families, whether genealogical or social, we learn how to behave, how to react and how to be wellrounded human beings. In short, we teach each other how to live. This does not mean we will get along all the time. In fact, I can safely predict that we won’t. Bringing together several individuals with ideals, beliefs and tendencies as unique as their fingerprints is bound to cause friction somewhere down the line. However, the common denominator of wanting to belong will always supersede any differences people have. A lance corporal from Texas may not have too much in common with a sergeant from New York except the fact that they share the title of Marine. But isn’t that enough? When I was in Honduras, recently, I had the opportunity to stay with an amazing family. John and Tarah Carrette are a wonderful couple who make being in your 30s look as glamorous as Hollywood on Oscar night. They are also the parents of 18 children. While working at what was an orphanage, the dynamic duo helped take care of several children who have been abandoned, abused and neglected by their birth families. The stories of suffering and tragedy some of them have endured before they even celebrated their third birthdays are enough to bring tears to my eyes. They found as time went on that their job had actually become their family, but wasn’t until one night that it all became a reality.

Seaman Gilbert Mendoza and wife Sara Mendoza, attendants of the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program marriage enrichment class, practice the speaker-listening technique during the second day of the course held at the Midway Park Marine Corps Family Team building office aboard the Marine Corps Camp Lejeune housing area, July 28 and 29.

Couples learn to nurture lasting love in marriage CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

We’ve all heard those wedding bells ringing before. A couple is joined in the hand of marriage, and thus, begin their new life together. But what starts out as a happy and momentous day oftentimes turns sour within the first couple of years of what is supposed to be a lifelong commitment. When it comes to marriage, people often want or hope for a fairy tale ending with a happily ever after, but marriage isn’t always easy. To help service members strengthen their marriages as well as deal with the stresses military life adds to the relationship, Jim Asher, readiness and deployment support trainer, and Cmdr. Ken Counts, deputy base chap-

lain for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, taught the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program marriage enrichment class. The two-day course was held July 28 and 29, at the Midway Park Marine Corps Family Team Building office aboard the MCB Camp Lejeune housing area. PREP has helped thousands of military couples experience greater joy within their marriages as they learn how to listen to and understand each other better. The workshops and materials teach couples the skills they need to nurture a lasting love. Couples spend most of their time in special discussion or practicing skills. “It has actually been really helpful,” said Ben Avila, attendant of the marriage enrichment class. “Mainly because we

have problems with arguing a lot, so the speakerlistening technique really helped us out so we’re not constantly fighting and adding to the problem.” Key topics include expectations, commitment, fun, forgiveness, friendship, feeling understood and sensuality. PREP is not therapy and attendants are never forced to share personal concerns or relationship problems. “You know you’re reaching a good solution if it meets both partners’ needs for the relationship and for the family,” said Counts. The class begins by exploring effective communication skills, addressing problem-resolution strate-

gies and showing how to discover hidden issues in every relationship. “It’s teaching me how to just stop, actually listen to the exact keys of what she’s saying and tackle that single problem,” said Avila. While every couple starts off their relationship to make it work, many simply do not know how to accomplish a healthy and fulfilling marriage. With PREP, couples can gain concrete strategies and tools to build a rewarding marriage. For more information, couples should call the Marine Corps Family Team Building office at 451-0176.

One of the little girls, whose story is too heartbreaking for me to type, had been acting out in extreme anger, fighting with the others and destroying toys. She was lost, flailing in the waters of the forgotten. The Carrettes, after careful consideration, sat her down to explain something that every heart needs to hear. In a tone reserved for a loving father, John looked at her and said, “There is nothing you can do to make us take you back.” That simple sentence, the reassurance that she was loved and wanted, healed deep wounds of hatred and disregard, and she cried like a grown woman. She started calling them mom and dad after that night, and it spread to the rest of the kids like wildfire. Soon, everyone’s health had improved, morale was up and a general happiness could be felt in the house. They were a family. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not telling you to approach your commanding officer, give him a hug and call him dad. In fact, I strongly advise against it. But if you can wrap your mind around the fact that being a service member is less about a uniform and more about unity, you’ll begin to understand the significance of the family for which you voluntarily signed up. Families don’t have to match. They don’t always have to agree. They don’t cause you to lose your own identity but rather help you develop it. American writer, Kendall Hailey, once said, “The great gift of family life is to be intimately acquainted with people you might never even introduce yourself to, had life not done it for you.” Call it what you like – a family, tribe, unit or group. You need one. We weren’t made to live this life alone.

MAGIC FROM 1D they’re proud of what they’ve done.” One mother told Guitar how she had a hard time getting her son to read. However, when he heard about the SRP and the prizes available, she couldn’t get him to put down the books. He ended up being one of the top readers of his age group. The Stone Street Youth Pavilion and Tarawa Terrace Community Center staff also helped by bringing their summer students to the library events. “It’s great having the staff, volunteers and parents to help,” Guitar explained. “We’re all working together as a team to get kids interested in reading.” School is just around the corner, but for those who participated in SRP, the transition shouldn’t be too difficult. “Statistics show that children who read during the summer do better in school,” explained Guitar. “Thank you to all the parents for encouraging the kids to take part. They’ll see their work paid off when school starts.” Gabbie Haug, a military child, loved being a part of the SRP and getting to read so many books. “You get to have a new experience and learn something new about the book,” she said. Still in shock from Jones’ ability to change a rat into a rabbit, Illyanna Manderichio, also a military child, said she enjoyed all the events offered and how she read more than she watched television this summer. “You get to go on lots of adventures (with reading),” she said. Though the SRP came to an end, many children still have books they’re waiting to read. The announcement of the winners and prizes awarded ignited a fresh desire to delve into pages. The first place winner in the 4 to 7-years-old category was William Bicking with 2,140 minutes. The top three after Bicking were Phoenix Oidea with 2,038 minutes, Tabitha Gray with 1,920 minutes and Nathan Hood with 1,890 minutes. This age group was allowed to count minutes read to them by their parents as well. The first place winner in the 8 to 11-year-old category was Brooklyn Wrenn with an impressive 14,201 minutes, or 237 hours. The three runners-up were Katalina Werlin with 10,680 minutes, Journey Harding with 5,889 minutes and Natalie Hendrix with 4,762 minutes. For more information about the SRP, visit
