The advisors know their work is important for all Afghans, who will rely on the ANA to provide security once coalition forces leave. “We are preparing them for when we leave,” said Kennedy. “We’ve made it clear to them they need to use solutions they can use without us being here.”

Fifty Marines and sailors with Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group learned how to use the Gunslinger Package for the Advanced Convoy Security system during a two-week course Aug. 6 through 17. The GPACS system provides easy communication between machine gunners, better weapon control and can be mounted on a Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement. “This system was primarily design to provide protection for convoys (in Afghanistan),” explained Jacob Ackerman, the lead technician for the GPACS system training facility here. “This system puts the (machine gunners) inside the cabin of the truck.” It is equipped with night vision and thermal capabilities, and is designed to carry the M249 light machine gun, M240 medium machine gun or Mark II .50 caliber machine gun.

Pfc. Michael D. Testa, a motor vehicle operator who participated in the course, said the system is very similar to playing a video game. “It is very accurate and very userfriendly,” Testa said. “It is great it can provide a better way to look at the surroundings while passing all the information to other gunners in the convoy through a live chat.” Sgt. Emerson C. Mason, a motor vehicle operator and a veteran of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, said he is very glad the Marine Corps is investing in this type of technology. “This is great,” Mason expressed. “I can’t wait to use it when I go to Afghanistan. This is going to save lives and help us get from point A to point B effectively without risking the lives of Marines.” The troops with CLR-2, who recently stood up as the MLG’s forward unit, are slated to deploy in the next few months to Afghanistan in support of International Security Assistance Force operations.

Employment, rental scams targeting military For a variety of reasons, service members and their families are prime targets for scam artists. This article addresses two of the current types of scams, which target service members because they move around so much. Troops are often looking for a rental residence, which makes them prime fodder for rental scams, and their civilian spouses are often looking for employment, making them great targets for employment service scams. Unfortunately, things are not always what they seem. The homeowner advertising a great, low-cost house on Craig’s List or some other internet site may not even own the property he claims to be renting. He’ll ask you to provide the first month’s rent and a security deposit before agreeing to send you the keys, which you will never get. He’ll have some wonderfully convoluted excuse why some other company’s sign is in the front yard, or why he can’t get you into the house before you fork over your cash. He may even require you to fill out a detailed questionnaire to allegedly determine your ability to pay, but in reality it is to elicit information from you in order to perpetrate further frauds through identity theft. There are any number of employment scams that promise to get you a job, or offer riches for doing virtually nothing or present some phony business opportunity. Many scams revolve around cashing a check or a money order. For example, if you sign up to be a mystery shopper, you will be sent

a check or money order that looks quite genuine, but is not. You will be instructed to cash the instrument, use some of the money to make purchases at local store, provide a review, to put some of the money into your pocket as your pay, and return the rest. Eventually Western Union or the bank will realize the instrument is a fake, and you will be stuck reimbursing them with the full face amount. Other business opportunity scams involve processing medical insurance claims, stuffing envelopes, conducting on-line searches, or doing some other activity at home. And of course, pyramid schemes, where you will supposedly become rich after your initial buy in by recruiting your friends into the fraud. These scams are often characterized by pressure to act quickly, stories of fantastic riches, and companies only with internet sites and no physical addresses. With such high unemployment, it is not surprising that phony employment counseling or job placement scams are popular. There are legit firms, to be sure, but it can be hard to tell the difference. Some warning signs are high up-front fees, guarantees you will find a job, pressure to act immediately, oral promises that don’t appear in the written contract, and offering “previously undisclosed” federal jobs. There aren’t any. They are all announced on www. USAJobs.gov. Of course, once one scammer has taken you for as much money as he thinks he can get, he may sell your

information to other scammers; you are now on a sucker list the scammer community figures are easy marks. There’s a chance you will be contacted by a phony detective or loss-recovery specialist promising to get your loss reimbursed, but you have to pay an up-front fee, cash a phony check at the bank, or provide personal financial information. If you have been victimized: - Report these matters to the police. Even if the police fail to catch the perpetrator, the law enforcement report may assist you in undoing identity theft damage. - Take action to prevent further ID theft losses. The Federal Trade Commission published a detailed outline of steps identity theft victims can take at /www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/ idtheft2012 - Report matters to the FTC military consumer sentinel, to the N.C. Attorney General, to your legal assistance office, and to your friends and colleagues. - Scam victims can also request assistance from the N.C. Attorney General’s office at 1-877-5NO SCAM or from the military liaison at 919-7266000. - If the host web site, for example Craig’s List or Lejeune Yard Sales, has a means of reporting fraud, use it, but be careful not to disclose personal financial information. - Be especially wary after the first victimization; you are even more of a target now.

July 2011 - June 2012 Annual Wastewater Performance Report The Annual Wastewater Performance Report is presently available to users and customers of the Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. As a result of the North Carolina Clean Water Act of 1999, owners and operators of wastewater treatment and collection systems are subject to important reporting requirements. All systems, including the plant aboard the installation, are required to publish an AWPR to summarize the treatment works’ and collection system’s performance over a 12-month period. The AWPR is a report card to provide facts about wastewater treatment for the base and Marine Corps Air Station New River. A description of the wastewater treatment process performance and deficiencies is also provided in the AWPR. The AWPR is available to users and customers of the treatment plant.

The AWPR is also posted on the environmental management department web page www.lejeune.usmc.mil/emd.

In an effort to be more fiscally savvy, the Senate Appropriations Committee proposed to cut about 10 percent of funding for military moves. Do you think longer tours, potentially up to five years, at one duty station will benefit or hinder service members, their careers and their families? They would save moves if they planned ahead a bit on schools and commands. So many people move and then get selected for school or a command. They have to move again in less than a year.

Laura Hyatt Hinder. Some tours are nightmares.

Greg Jeppson As a spouse with kids, I would like longer tours at each duty station. I’ve been married to my husband seven of his eight years in, and we’ve lived in three states during our marriage (not including the state we got married in). I would love the opportunity to get more deeply entrenched in a community, to be more able to make and keep friends, to not be in a constant state of moving. My kids feel the same way. While I can’t say if it will be of benefit to our service members or not, I think it would definitely be of benefit to their families.

Amanda Rodgers My husband has been at the same command since May 2006. It sucks in every way imaginable.

Julie DeChaine To be more fiscally savvy? How about the Senate cuts 10 percent of their pay and 50 percent of their retirement across the board, and leave our military alone? Just saying. Heather MacFarland I think it will add some much needed stability to the lives of families already under a tremendous amount of stress.

Persian Gulf health care reform In August 1990 U.S. troops moved into Saudi Arabia marking the start of Operation Desert Shield, and the morning of Jan. 17, 1991, the coalition launched a massive air campaign commencing the start of Operation Desert Storm. It was 22 years ago almost 700,000 service members, of which the U.S. made up 74 percent of the coalition forces, were deployed to the Persian Gulf. Immediately after the war, veterans began complaining of several illnesses and symptoms ranging from rashes to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Those veterans, who enrolled in the Veterans Administration health care system, completed over 2 million outpatient visits for health care and more than 20,000 inpatient admissions in the VA health care system. The VA is improving care and services for Gulf War Veterans through initiatives outlined in the 2011 Gulf War Veteran’s Illness Task Force Report. These include the evaluation of a clinical-care model specifically for Gulf War veterans and enhanced education for health care providers about Gulf War veteran’s concerns. Additionally, a VA Gulf War Research Strategic Plan

was developed to address effective treatment for the symptoms experienced by some Gulf War veterans, and to guide efforts toward improvements in its diagnosis, the understanding of genetic and biological factors related to the illnesses, and the application of research findings in Veterans’ health care. The VA recognizes several presumptive illnesses, which may be linked to Gulf War veterans, such as brucellosis, campylobacter jejuni, coxiella burnetti, malaria, mycobacterium, tuberculosis, nontyphoid salmonella, shigella, visceral leishmaniasis and west nile virus. This presumptive recognition simplifies the application process for benefits. All Gulf War veterans are encouraged to contact a VA environmental health coordinator at 1-877-222-8387 if they participated in any operation in the area to include Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom or New Dawn. The coordinator will provide a survey form and set up a physical examination. For more information about the illness or assistance the VA may be able to provide, please contact the Retired Activities Office at 451-0287.

The Marines are in Kuwait as part of a 24th MEU sustainment training package. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force providing support.

xploding, flying turkeys and hoards of terrorist attackers nicknamed ‘zombies’ may sound like the next greatest shoot-em up video game headed to the sales racks but for some Marines from Combat Logistics Battalion 24, these simulations provided an entertaining training tool that allowed them to get some trigger time while away from the ship. The Engagement Skills Trainer 2000 gave the Marines a venue to have some fun practicing realistic marksmanship skills while ashore recently conducting a wide variety of training exercises in vast, desert training areas. While exploding turkeys and zombies don’t illustrate the realistic scenarios the EST 2000 initially presented to the Marines for training, it demonstrates the system’s versatility in creating any simulation service members can think of. “I don’t think of this as a video game, I think of it as a training tool,” said Randy Roller, the EST site lead with the Warrior Training Alliance who set up the training with the Marines. “It’s all limited to the imagination of the trainer. If the trainer can think it, we can come up with a scenario and make it run.” Using the EST 2000 simulator allowed them to refresh their skills and prepare for small arms, live-fire ranges they were scheduled to conduct a few days later. The simulations the Marines focused on included firing targets at unknown distances using M-16 and M-4 rifles at distances ranging from 25 to 400 meters away. At the end of each course of fire a screen would appear displaying their hits and misses. In the scenarios, the Marines practiced firing in rapid succession and the various targets programmed to appear randomly. They also dealt with simulated weapons

malfunctions so they could practice getting their weapon in operating order and get back into the fight quickly. “This situation is more typical of combat because you need to adjust quickly to different targets at different ranges and different shapes,” said 1st Lt. Matthew Strickland, the logistics officer for CLB24. “You need to be able to engage them quickly to maintain the upper hand in the fight.” According to CUBIC Defense Systems, the parent company of the EST 2000, the system provides a highly accurate and configurable system to help soldiers acquire, sustain, and sharpen tactical engagement skills relevant to their mission. The system allows service members to focus on various marksmanship scenarios, group training up to the squad level, and decision making scenarios that force the service members to decide to shoot or refrain from shooting. To describe it simply, it is similar to a giant videogame where the controller is any weapon system ranging from 9mm pistols to a MK-19 automatic grenade launchers, and the scenario can be created to cater to whatever the unit training needs are. The weapon systems also replicate the sounds of, and have around 70 to 80 percent of, the actual kickback of firing the weapon in real life because of air compressors, said Roller. “It is definitely a lot better than a video game,” said Lance Cpl. Lee Wade, a field radio operator with CLB-24. “I would rather do this than play ‘Call of Duty’.” The Marines of CLB-24 make up the logistics combat element for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Many of the 24th MEU’s Marines spent approximately two months at Camp Buehring and the Udairi Ranges in Kuwait conducting a variety of sustainment training exercises while deployed in the U.S. Central Command and 5th Fleet area of responsibility.

24th Marine Expeditionary Unit

The Marines and sailors of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit and Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group celebrated the halfway point of their deployment aboard USS New York recently. They commemorated the day alongside the opening festivities of the Shellback Ceremony, a day set aside for the naval tradition of welcoming Marines and sailors, called pollywogs, who are crossing the equator for the first time. "It's good to know we finally reached the halfway point of the deployment," said Lt. Col. Aaron W. Adams, 24th MEU executive officer. "It has been a very busy

and productive several months since we left home." The Marines and sailors of the 24th MEU and the Iwo Jima ARG participated in bilateral training during Exercise African Lion 12 in Morocco and Exercise Eager Lion 12 in Jordan along with unilateral training in Kuwait during the first half of their deployment. "The can-do spirit and pervasive teamwork of New York's sailors and Marines shows through in every challenge we faced in the U.S. Navy's 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility," said Navy Capt. Jon Kreitz, USS New York commanding officer. "I couldn't be prouder of everyone's performance." The blue and green team of

USS New York rejoiced as they bid adieu to the first half of their deployment and began preparing for the remainder. They celebrated with a steel-beach picnic along with games, including sumo wrestling suits and a talent show. To commemorate the important day and combined ceremonies, the Navy invited sea legend Davy Jones and his royal court aboard the ship to perform skits and songs for the revelry of the crew. "It's a tradition of crossing the equator and appeasing the sea gods," said Petty Officer 1st Class Julian Guidry. "It's also a point of pride. How many people can say they've been across the equator aboard a ship? And the Marines and sailors go through

it together, so it builds camaraderie. It's a good time and everybody has fun." Ceremonies and celebrations allowed the Marines and sailors to mingle outside their workspace and break the monotony of ship life, which can quickly become dull and slow with reduced opportunities for Marines to train and maintain morale. Off ship, the Marines find time passes much differently with their days consumed by training. "Getting on and off the ship a lot is good for these guys," said Staff Sgt. Walter Duncan, CH-53E detachment control chief, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 261 (Reinforced), 24th MEU. "It helps the time go by faster for them.�

The aviation Marines saw their most difficult challenges in Jordan during Exercise Eager Lion 12. From the minimalistic approach to on-ground operations maintaining a daily water supply to wash the aircraft, the Marines and sailors maintained 24-hour operations to keep their aircraft mission ready, said Duncan. With four months and two major training exercises behind them, the Marines and sailors expressed their motivation and excitement at facing the rest of their deployment. "The key now is to ensure we stay focused and committed to our mission especially in the dynamic environment in which we work.� said Adams.

The training made history. It marked the first time in 10 years that Bridge Company, 8th ESB collaborated with elements of the 2nd MAW to open and construct a collapsible raft while already in water.

Engineers plunge into New River, accomplish historic training feat PVT. FRANKLIN MERCADO 2nd Marine Logistics Group

The Marine Corps is no stranger to making history, and the Marines and sailors of Bridge Company, 8th Engineer Support Battalion made their mark in their unit’s lineage, with a once-in-a-decade training exercise. Bridge Company worked with components of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing to conduct a training event here, from Aug. 7 to 9, which was a first for many. The purpose of the training was to give troops a chance to test their skills on the water. The event simulated a humanitarian relief effort during which trucks couldn’t maneuver and a bridge was needed. The equipment put to use was the improvised ribbon bridge. The IRB provides wet gap crossing capabilities either as a floating bridge or a multi-bay raft for tactical vehicles.

A CH-53E Super Stallion from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366 took on the dubious task of airlifting several 14,000-pound individual sections of an IRB from a nearby landing zone and dropping them at Engineer’s Point. Once a section was safely dropped into the bay, Marines raced across the choppy waters aboard a watercraft to maneuver the piece of the bridge to the desired location. The Marines flung open each section of the improved ribbon bridge, reaching into the water to undo two latches keeping the section closed during flight and jumped on to secure the raft while still floating atop the water. The process took mere seconds, but it was an experience they will not forget, explained Lance Cpl. David S. Price, a landing support specialist with 2nd Marine Logistics Group. “When they told us this was something

that hasn’t happened in so long, I didn’t really know what I would think about it,” he said. “Once we started doing our jobs, it was like any other exercise.” The job of the landing support specialists was crucial to the exercise. They had the unenviable task of hooking each of the sections to the helicopter, which hovered only feet from the crowns of their heads. “The (landing support Marines) provided outstanding support,” said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Griffith Ruskin, the IRB platoon commander. “They did their jobs, and did them well.” Ruskin wasn’t the only Marine who thought the exercise was conducted smoothly. One of the Super Stallion’s crew also recognized the good work. “We are giving them about 10 minutes between each drop, and they are getting the job done,” said 1st Lt. Nicholas Ferri, one of five Marines aboard the helicopter during the exercise.

The role of the Marines in the water couldn’t be understated. They executed their duties to a high level of efficiency while setting a standard for the unit, Ruskin explained. “Our Marines were excellent in the water,” he said. “The exercise was extremely successful. It was definitely a milestone for the battalion and Marines.” The commotion and anticipation for the event left it hard to believe the idea sprouted from a casual conversation Ruskin had with a helicopter pilot during the 2nd MLG family day. “It all started with an informal conversation I had,” Ruskin said, as he recounted having the conversation as his children enjoyed a tour of a CH-53E Super Stallion. “It took three months of planning, but it all came together and was a success. The Marines received great training they’ve never done. I couldn’t ask for a better job from them.”

He plays a cat and mouse game with explosives for a living, but accepting credit for his achievements makes him shift uneasily in his seat. Staff Sgt. Christopher P. Lukas, an explosive ordnance disposal team leader with 2nd EOD Company, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, swept the field to receive the Marine Corps Engineer Association’s 2012 EOD Technician of the Year award. It is for “the most outstanding contribution as an EOD Marine,” but Lukas isn’t sure it is solely his to accept. For him, working with explosives is a family affair. “We end up closer than brothers because of the way we have to operate in our career field,” said Lukas, who spent his youth traveling as part of a military family. “You basically know what the other individual thinks.” He credits his achievements to the mentorship of people such as Chief Warrant Officer 2 Christopher West and Gunnery Sgts. Jonathan Key and William Isele. The names are more than past mentors to Lukas. They are a reflection of how he thinks and who he is as a team leader today. Their example taught him to step forward while others are backing away, Lukas explained. Leadership at all levels showed him how to think like his opponents, approach each situation with a plan and gave him the ability to adapt when the situation changed. “We rely on each other so much I think their names need to be on there,” said Lukas, struggling to explain why his name came out on top. “I’m not going to sit here and say I deserve something or not. I started out as Gunnery Sgt. Key’s team member for the last deployment, and all I did was what he trained me to do.” His modest tone hid the fact that Lukas found a calling in the EOD field, which he joined after nearly eight years calibrating and repairing aviation equipment. The lessons of Key, West, Isele and many others found an open mind in Lukas, who claims a desire to learn as one of his greatest strengths. “At the end of the day, I learned everything I know from those guys,” said Lukas, who found himself a team leader halfway though his last deployment. “The tables somewhat turned. We’re sitting here, and I’m training some new guys. I continually find myself saying, ‘I learned this from that guy, or I learned that from this guy.’”

He believes brotherhood and tragedies that he could not do his job without thrust him into a leadership role. the support of his EOD family “Some of the best moments were in the field, just as he could not just sitting and talking with those do it without the support of his guys.

e has an uncanny ability to talk around his own accomplishments, but a laundry list of military, legal and academic achievements are hard to hide on a résumé. More than 20 years of service ranging from Bosnia and Afghanistan to the halls of Harvard Law School finally caught up with Lt. Col. Robert G. Bracknell. Bracknell, the staff judge advocate with 2nd Marine Logistics Group, received the American Bar Association’s 2012 ABA Outstanding Military Service Career Judge Advocate Award in Chicago Aug. 3. The ABA selected a single service member from each branch of the military to receive the award. The award recognizes service members for their excellence in the law profession as well as their involvement in serving their communities. “I’m proud of it,” admitted Bracknell, setting aside any sense of self praise. “At the risk of sounding cliché, I’m a little embarrassed by it too. The celebrating me thing is a little embarrassing.” The legal expert, and at one time a tank platoon commander, has a powerful voice and stocky build, and is by no means shy. Strong devotion to duty and respect for his peers drives Bracknell to gratefully fill roles that demand the courage to honestly advise the leadership of the Marine Corps. “I value being the guy who commanders can call,” said Bracknell. “Helping them trim the rough edges of their units and helping them achieve some sort of justice for victims is gratifying to me. I believe it helps sharpen the MLG’s knife.” Bracknell served as a sharpening stone for commanders while in such geographically dispersed areas as Cuba, Germany, Afghanistan and two tours in Iraq before coming to 2nd MLG. His expertise and advice helped them to refine operational plans with regard to issues such as international boundaries, sovereignty and policy. It is a career of service that leaves little personal time and has physically separated Bracknell from his family. He normally visits on short periods of down time like weekends, most of which he dedicates entirely to his wife and five children. “We’re not in it for the money,” said Bracknell, who jokingly admits he didn’t even realize the military had lawyers when he joined. “I’m really in it for the respect of my peers and my subordinates. It’s really a hard working and dedicated profession. You would almost have to be nuts to work as hard as we do for the pay.” Accepting praise for his performance amongst such dedicated professionals is a sensitive point for Bracknell. He views his years of education, deployments and tireless working hours as chances and not burdens. His selection is more than a reflection of his personal effort. “Half of being nominated is serendipity,” said Bracknell as he commented on his luck amongst his peers. “The other half is recognizing opportunities and exploiting them. You work as hard as you can because you believe it is your duty to do so. You generate good results, and people recommend you for selection.” Events such as the award ceremony in Chicago are usually a learning opportunity for Bracknell. The lasting friendships and people who make up the Marine Corps convinced him to continue his career year after year. He said he is just glad to be regarded highly amongst his peers.

unctuated by thrilled shrieks and laughtter, Tarawa Terrace’s Community Center is transformed into a giant jungle gym for the children of T’s Tumble and Cheer program. Twice a week, coach Tosha Thrift gathers some of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s youngest patrons for an hour of fun, exercise and education. They pack everything into a one-hour class, determined to make it through every obstacle course, and itching to jump on the trampolines and play with foam balls set up around the room. They know they have to work hard in order to play, though, so without hesitation, they take their seats on a giant foam mat and begin their warm-up, with Thrift leading the charge. “I’m new, but we stretch,” boasted Kaylynn Polin, who was in her first “big kid” tumbling class. “I can’t do it all yet.” With Thrift’s guidance, Polin spent her first night in the three and four-year-old tumbling class learning how to walk on a balance beam, SEE TUMBLE 7B

Anglers hope for trout, pray for calm seas, winds

I might sound like a broken record, but I would like to remind anglers of the importance weather plays in fishing. July was a rainy month along the North Carolina coast, and I see more anglers growing frustrated with the rain than ever before. Last Monday, I emptied seven inches of rain from my rain gauge. Each day I report rainfall amounts to the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. CoCoRaHS is always looking for volunteers. I know many anglers visit their website to check on the rain levels in different parts of the state. I suggest it to any angler who is unsure what equipment they will need for a day of fishing, as the website is kept as up-to-date a possible. This time of year, large rainfall events usually are a result of hurricanes or tropical storms, but this summer was relatively quiet. While some rainfall was associated with fizzling tropical weather patterns, the majority of it came from the west.

While the rainfall replenished groundwater, it also produced a lot of runoff. The runoff is primarily composed of silt mixed into water, causing the waterways, rivers and oceans to be less than pristine. With such high amounts of freshwater runoff leaking into the tributaries and ocean, the salinity of the Atlantic is thinner than normal. This is both a blessing and curse for anglers. Lower salt levels tend to draw larger crab populations, but disrupt inshore and nearshore fish and shrimp populations. That being said, there are still some bright spots in our fishing landscape. Trout catches are still strong. Most of last week’s catches were made in Core Creek and some of the hard-to-reach shallows of the North River. The flounder bite is still outstanding on the reefs, rocks and wrecks. More than 90 percent of all flounder caught are large enough to keep. Flounder are starting to move inshore after months of teasing anglers, and are currently being caught from Bogue Pier, the Morehead Port Turning Basin and Port Wall. I landed a few flounder large enough for dinner when I was fishing in Bogue Sound recently. I used floating mullet minnows on a cork and fished an incoming tide. While flounder start-

ing to move closer to the shore, surf fishing is still slow. A few black drum were caught in the surf near Bogue Pier last week, and several sea mullet were reeled in near Ft. Macon late one afternoon. Most surf fish are caught on sand fleas, which are free to dig up. Anglers are still waiting for the pompano bite to run south. The last several years were strong seasons for large red drum, and it looks like we can add this year to the list. Fish in the 30 to 50 pound class were landed on cut bait in the Neuse Pamlico waters last week. Some are also successfully sight cast with bucktails. What a great way to catch our magnificent state fish. A hot spot is right around Oriental hole. The Spanish mackerel bite, although up and down throughout the summer, is holding steady for now. Although the fish are running deep, large Spanish mackerel are trolled on live finger mullet and peanut pogies. In keeping with their typical route, the fish are around the inlets, and over the reefs and wrecks. A recent hot spot for Spanish mackerel is around the Lookout Shoals area. Anglers should be warned, though, the Spanish mackerel don’t swim alone. Sharks were spotted in the shallow waters last week. With the continued abundance of menhaden schools flooding the coastline, scattered schools of king mack-

erel were caught close to the beach. The majority remain 10 to 15 miles offshore and on the east side of Lookout Shoals. In fact, some of the good catches of pelagic fish, kings, wahoo and dolphin are as close as the 1700 Rock and Chicken Rock. Dolphin are also caught from the Big10 and Little10 rock ledges. Along with the menhaden schools, amberjack fish flooded the coast. These fish are very popular right now. Anglers are catching them on the reefs, rocks and from the piers. They make tasty meals and are easy to catch using fly rods. Luckily, they do not swim deep making them easier to catch than Spanish mackerel. Finally, last week I went kayak fishing in the Croatan Forest area along the White Oak River. There was lots of bait, shrimp and mullets, but the drum had lockjaw. We saw quite a few red drum but did not catch any, regardless of the bait we chose. If the rain holds up, I will try again this week on a kayaking trip with some out-of-state clients. I hope to find a bait the drum will enjoy so we can show tourist a good time on the coast. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, and can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page at any time.

Don’t get trigger-happy

How to tell if you’re a hasty hunter

I miss school. I had a tendency to get overzealous when I did my school work, but it took me until I reached college to figure out why. I was in my sophomore year of college before I settled down and didn’t tear up every time I got any grade other than an A. I learned the majority of my B’s and C’s were coming from things I was too overzealous to complete. In short, I was trigger-happy about my class work. Unlike my straight forward homework assignments in high school, clearly explained and easily understood, some of my college courses required more abstract thought. I wasn’t used to it. Like a hunter who is not properly prepared for a full day in the

woods, I wasn’t following directions the way they were laid out because I wasn’t reading everything before I jumped in. With hunting season fastapproaching and students headed back to school, it only seems fitting to share what I learned about the dangers of being trigger-happy. Smart hunters, like smart students, know what they are getting into. They make careful and calculated decisions, aware of their actions and conscious of the effect they have on others. Hasty hunters scramble for their gear, run out the door, forget to feed the dog or turn off the lights. Intelligent and prepared hunters move across the land with ease, checking compasses and maps to ensure they are taking the right path to track whatever it is they are hunting. Hasty hunters are less inclined to take the steps to formulate a plan of attack and tend to sit around without any idea of what their next move should be. If you’re preparing for hunting season, ensure you are ready by taking the necessary steps to be a

legal hunter. With certain areas of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune off limits due to field exercises and training schedules, it’s imperative hunters check with the base game warden before heading off into the unknown and pulling the trigger. Whether you’re itching to try out your new bow and arrow, or ready to sling your shotgun over your shoulder, remember to step back and formulate a plan of attack. Unless you want to be like Elmer Fudd and hunt the same rabbit for the rest of your life, constantly outsmarted by his intelligence, know how to hunt using your prey’s weakness to your advantage. Unless you’re planning on becoming the next Wiley Coyote, and want to chase the same bird around and have anvils dropped on your head, learn to outsmart your prey. And, unless you have a deep and burning desire to be Tom the cat, you should start thinking of your game plan. Even if the best laid plans are foiled by something unexpected, they are better than no plans at all.

part of the USA boxing team at the London Olympics carried a lot of weight. He was acutely aware of his responsibility to his teammates, his country and his family. He was also aware the world would be watching, analyzing his every move and waiting with baited breath for the moment he stepped in the ring. After spending a few weeks training with other members of the USA boxing team, Herring and his fellow Olympians started their first official night at the Olympics by participating in the Opening Ceremonies. For Herring, the night was a signifigant anniversary – closer to his heart than to some of his teammates.

Even before his bout began, Herring recalled the sound of crowd in the stadium and the rush of emotions knowing they were all waiting for him. “While I was getting my hands checked, before I even made it all the way to the ring, I could hear people yelling and cheering for the USA,” stated Herring. “It was incredible to know they had that sort of confidence in me. “I stepped into the ring and I remember seeing an American flag and knowing people were counting on me to do the best I could,” Herring continuted. “I knew I didn’t want to let them down.” With his family watching from home, his Olympic teammates in the stands and the members of the All-Marine Boxing Team cheering for him all the way from North Carolina, Herring readied himself for a three-round fight. With a final score of 19-9, Herring did not advance to the second round. The knowledge his Olympic experience was over hit like a ton of bricks, dizzying, depressing and upsetting him in an unexpected way. “I was really frustrated with not winning,” admitted Herring. “But I knew I still had a job to do.” Leaving the ring without a win, Herring spent plenty of time talking to members of the media, refusing to let his performance in the ring dictate SEE HERRING 5B

During the day, Marines with 2nd Marine Logistics Group conduct combat logistics operations in support of II Marine Expeditionary Force and its subordinate units in order to support and conduct combat operations and sustain warfighting effectiveness. Though the fight never ends, once a Marine’s daily duties end, the evening is usually his or hers to squander or relish. Some Marines go home to relax, others workout, some enjoy the company of fellow service members, and others, such as several Marines with the 2nd

MLG, participate in intramural sports like the slow-pitch softball league here. The league’s season goes from July to September. Teams play twice a week at one of several softball fields here. The season culminates with tournaments and the right to be named champions. Combining the competitive nature of an organized sport and the brotherhood of service members is something that couldn’t be passed up, explained Sgt. Andrew Laudun, a motor vehicle operator with Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd MLG. “I think playing softball with my fellow Marines is great,� he

said. “It’s a great way to relax after work and have a good time.� Though Laudun has worked with the regiment for years, this was his first opportunity to play on the team. “I wasn’t able to play on the prior teams because of deployments and [other duties],� he said. “I took the chance to play this year, and I’m having a lot of fun.� Laudun isn’t the only Marine from his section who is part of the team.

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. HERRING FROM 3B the way he conducted himself. He recalled one member of the media asking if he was ready to go home since he lost. “I realized I could have been on the plane coming home the day after my fight, but I wasn’t trained to leave,” Herring said. “They asked, but I told them I still had a job to do. The Marine side of me kicked in, and I knew I couldn’t’ do that. I was a team captain, and I wasn’t going to leave anybody behind. The Marine Corps did not train me to behave that way.” Herring only took one day off from the gym before returning to his teammates to pursue his co-captain position. Still feeling uneasy about the scores he received from his performance in the ring, it took a conversation with a teammate to remind him he was still a necessary part of the USA boxing team. He returned to the gym with vigor, coaching and helping his teammates who still had bouts to participate in. He ensured he attended every possible fight and cheered for the rest of his team members. Once their fight was over, and they left the ring, he waited for them to speak to members of the media before taking them to the side and having a short pep talk with them, win or lose. These qualities, he said, are part of the reason he believes he was chosen to be a co-captain on the team. “The other co-captains, (Rau’shee) Warren and Queen Underwood, and I worked well together,” said Herring. “We played off each other. I learned a lot from them, and I hope they learned something from me too. “I think we all tried to lead by example and handle situations as they came to us. We were like a family, and we had to take care of each other.” While the USA boxing team’s bouts spanned two weeks, he managed to take in a few other sports. He attended several aquatic events and watched fellow Olympian Michael Phelps win his last gold of the 2012 games. He also had the chance to interact with other athletes in the Olympic village, an opportunity he found both exciting and nerve wracking. “I met the USA basketball team, which was a big thing for me,” he stated. “It would have been really easy for them to pretend like I was just a fan or another little person, but they were kind and didn’t treat me that way. They really understood we were all on the same team – representing the same country.” On meeting athletes from other countries, Herring said the experience was truly a once in a lifetime. “I’ve never been in a room with so many people from all over the world,” he said. “Everybody was there for the same purpose, and even though we were all from different countries, it was good to see how people represent themselves and act in different parts of the world.” Of the multitudes of people he met in the Olympic village, Herring made special mention of Army Sgt. Vincent Hancock, captain of the USA Skeet team and fellow service member. “It was nice to be able to sit down and talk with him at least once while I was in London,” said Herring. “I really enjoyed it. He was one of those people I met and was honored to spend some time talking to.” As the Olympic flame was extinguished and the multitudes left the stadium for the last time,

Herring began to prepare himself for the next chapter of his life. When he landed at the airport, he was welcomed home by his family and members from the All-Marine Boxing Team aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. “Everything I went through in London, all the emotions and the frustration with not doing as well as I planned was gone when I saw my family and team waiting for me,” Herring said.

“It was incredible to see them all at the airport, and know they cheered me on and supported me.” Herring said he was also shocked by the “support from every person on base,” and did his best to remain humble and make his fellow service members, teammates and supporters proud of the way he conducted himself. While he did not return home with a gold medal he was hoping for,

Herring said he understands and is grateful for the support he received from friends and family on Twitter and Facebook. “Jamel Herring, you are a Marine, a veteran and an Olympian,” tweeted one supporter shortly after Herring’s loss. “Who else can say that?” “I tried to respond to everybody’s tweets and texts, because I’m nobody special and didn’t want to pretend like I

was,” he said. “I wanted to make sure I supported my friends and fans as well.” Herring plans to end his Marine Corps career in November and is preparing to start his professional boxing career as soon as possible. He understands boxing, like the Marine Corps, is a business where one wrong move can drastically affect the rest of his career. He is carefully examining

5B

coaches and speaking with trusted friends, hoping to find the coaching staff ready to help him. “I have that Marine motto stuck in my head, ‘Once a Marine, always a Marine,’” Herring admitted. “I’m a Marine. I’m also a boxer. I’ve represented my country doing both at the same time. Even after I go pro, the Marine side of me will never leave. Everything else can be handled one step at a time.”

Spiked Punch dives into championship LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Whistles, buzzers, bouncing and cheering packed the Area 1 Gymnasium Aug. 16 as Spiked Punch battled Hitt Squad for the intramural volleyball championship aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Both teams battled hard throughout the entire season and slammed their way into the championship game. They were now pitted against each

other – the best of the best. The best-of-three tournament was a competitive one as Spiked Punch and Hitt Squad battled back and forth in a close first match. If one team spiked the ball for a point and gained momentum, the other team would answer right back with a point of their own. The teams played their hearts out and the game was neck and neck throughout. However, Spiked Punch made a few more keys plays at the end and won 21-16 after scoring

TUMBLE FROM 1B jump on the trampoline and sit in the butterfly position. “I try to make sure every kid does everything to the best of their abilities,” explained Thrift. “On their first night in class I watch to see what they can do. We go from there. For the kids who were in the infant and toddler classes with their parents, I have a better sense of their abilities, but I like to see how they interact when their parent isn’t in the room.” Thrift, who has her master’s in elementary education, knows and values the importance of interactive learning. A teacher to her core, she understands leadership can come from unlikely places – even a four-year-old. “Sometimes, I like to let the older kids in class show or demonstrate something so the younger kids catch onto it faster,” admitted Thrift. “It’s been my experience they sometimes learn better from somebody their own age. Other times, I will show them what we’re going to do. It depends on the child and the attention span of the class.” For some of her veteran students, like Clifford Smith, the chance to show off what they know is a confidence booster. Smith led his classmates through several routines and exercises during a Thursday evening class, offering advice to his young friends. “You have to keep your arms out and point your toes,” instructed Smith as Thrift nodded in agreement. “You have to learn to do it the right way.” “Kids like (Smith), who are with me for a while know what I’m looking for after they get used to me,” said Thrift. “They know what to say, and I feel like some of the other kids will listen to him if he tells them to point their toes instead of me.” Even though she is not opposed to letting her veteran tumbler’s take the reigns sometimes, Smith keeps a close eye on her young class members. As the youngest class without parents present in the room, she knows she is responsible for their education and wellbeing. “I think I’m more strict with my own kids than with anybody else’s,” Smith said. “When you are taking care of somebody else’s child, you have to love them

five points in a row. After the teams switched sides and set up their rotations, the second game was on. Spiked Punch needed just one more match to win, putting the pressure on Hitt Squad. Fans were on the edge of their seats, and cheered on their family members and friends who were playing in the game. With every hit, half the crowd yelled in excitement and half the crowd sat in a nervous silence. Each team had their bright spots on the court

and neither team was able to completely pull away from the other. It was plain to see why they were playing for the intramural volleyball championship. Spiked Punch was a force to be reckoned with as they scored spike after spike. Hitt Squad played hard, but they didn’t have an answer for Spiked Punch’s dominating offense. Spiked Punch defeated Hitt Squad in the hard-fought battle for the championship and won the second game 21-18. “It’s an intramural

league, so it’s been fun all season,” said Stephen Williams, player and coach for Spiked Punch. “The team played great, and they really stepped it up from the beginning of the season. We had a great time out there together.” Spiked Punch kept their cool during the close contest and showed their chemistry by not panicking if they gave up a point to Hitt Squad. “I gave the team different tips and pointers throughout the season,” said Williams. “I taught

things like different types of hits and covering the court, and it really showed by the end of the season that the team was receptive and eager to improve.” Spiked Punch finished the regular season with a record of 4-2 and after winning the two playoff rounds, they finished with a championship record of 6-2.

I make sure they are all getting attention and don’t let me patience run thin because it’s not fair to their short attention spans.” Whether she is showing them the ropes or letting another students do it, Thrift’s class is always on the move. They walk through exercises and keep up a steady stream of jumping, rolling and running in their class. Repetition helps students stay engaged and learn to better the abilities. After her students demonstrate knowledge in the most basic tumbling steps, Thrift starts to work with them on the more specific aspects of each position. She helps them point their toes, keep their arms in the right position and monitors their flips to ensure nobody is doing anything to hurt themselves or others.

“In the older classes, they need to know how to do things correctly, but I don’t want to overwhelm them when they are young,” said Thrift. “We start with the most basic thing, and I learn to help them through trial and error. They are all different and learn in different ways. The bottom line is they are having fun.” Fun, after all, is all most of her participants care about. Smiles and laughter reign no matter what the young class of gymnasts is doing, and their eagerness to learn and teach others is infectious. “Everybody should do this because it’s fun,” stated Smith during a water break. “You should try it, as long as you can roll over and jump on a trampoline.” For more information on T’s Tumble and Cheer class visit www.mccslejeune.com/community.

Military spouses gathered at the Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune for the Military Spouse Business Alliance Hiring Fair and Career Forum Aug. 9. “Unfortunately the unemployment rate for military spouses stands at about 26 percent,” said Laura Dempsey, the program director for military spouse employment for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hire Our Heroes program, the program that hosted the event. “It’s largely due to their high mobility, not because of a lack of ability.” Military spouses face special challenges when looking for work. In Jacksonville those challenges can be compounded by the unemployment rate, currently 10.1 percent. “It’s a small city,” said Jasmine Betances, a military spouse at the event. “There aren’t a lot of job opportunities.” The fair specifically seeks out

and brings in employers who are looking for what a military spouse can bring to the table. “(Military spouses) are a great asset,” said Dempsey. “When our members approach us after hiring spouses they really want more of them. They are extremely loyal, flexible and self-sufficient. They’re great employees to have.” More than 400 military spouses came to the fair where approximately 30 employers had booths with representatives ready to answer questions or hold on-the-spot interviews. “There’s been a really good turnout,” said Joseph Pennington, a representative with an employer. “We held 20 interviews today.” The attending military spouses had a wide range of experiences. There were biochemists, financial advisers, social workers and construction workers hoping to get their foot in the door locally. Many left behind jobs in other states to follow their spouses and keep their families together. Other challenges faced by spouses include a lack of positions within

their job field field. Cristina Celeya, a military spouse hoping to find work through the fair, advised other spouses in her position not to give up. “You might get discouraged, especially because of the situation the nation is facing, but you have to get your foot in the door, even if you start at a lower position than you expected,” said Celeya. Military spouses sought opportunities to display their skills with the flexibility to handle the challenges associated with the military lifestyle. The event was also a career forum, with presentations on finding a career, how to best showcase volunteer experience and networking. Job seekers also received individual coaching on their resumes and interview skills. “We hope (participants) can get a job but if they don’t, we add a lot of extras to make sure they get something out of this for their careers,” said Dempsey.

The Marines of 2nd Marine Logistic Group, Combat Logistics Regiment 27’s Food Service Company began their day with the usual sounds of a kitchen. They buzzed throughout, chopping, dicing, and pulling apart fruits and vegetables for the day’s meals. However, today was not a usual day and the Marines were not in their usual setting. The cooks were preparing to have every aspect of their work judged and quantified, from their food to the layout of their facilities. Oddly enough, the Marines weren’t in a mess hall. They were in tents with rain dripping overhead hoping to qualify to compete for the Maj. Gen. W.P.T. Hill Award, a military foodservice award, and reclaim their position as victors. The competition gave Food Service Company the opportunity to showcase what they could offer their commanders in the field – where Marines may only have Meals-Ready-To-Eat to provide the sustenance needed for their labors. “You’re working your troops, and they’re out there doing great things,” said Capt. Joseph Fore, the company commander of Food Service Company. “They can come in, eat good chow and then they’re ready to go back to do their jobs. It’s a win-win for Marines and their command.” “MRE’s are a fine ration,” Fore added. “But we can do better than that.” The Marines set up a field site, which functioned as a mini-forward operating base. It included a medical area, a classroom, a command center, a berthing area with showers, along with a galley and mess hall. While they had some outside support, for instance with the installation of generators, Food Service Company built every aspect of the field site themselves, using skills they may not be able to use so close to home. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase what we can do outside of garrison,” said Staff Sgt. Quiam Woody, the staff noncommissioned officer of the site. “It’s great to see all of the Marines doing what they were taught.” Food service is a very adaptable field, said Master Sgt. James Hochschild. “Food service is one of the most rounded organizations in the Marine Corps,” said Hochschild. “We are self sufficient. While most Marine occupational specialties deal with specific tasks, we can do whatever tasks we have to do to support ourselves in a field environment.” They faced many challenges with their field site. Storms and lightning meant Marines had to be pulled from the site for safety reasons leading to significantly less preparation time than expected. The chief cook, Sgt. Christopher Womack, oversaw the moving parts within the galley. “Food service is more than dropping a bag in hot water,” said Womack. “We’re capable of much more.” It’s important for units to be able to sustain themselves while maintaining combat capabilities, said Gunnery Sgt. Morris Mayfield, the operations chief of Food Service Company. However, most field messes set up in deployed operations are much smaller. “This shows that in a realistic scenario we can do what we have to maintain the fight,” said Mayfield. The company would also be able to do so without SEE FOOD 2C

Herschel Walker speaks out about mental health illness PFC. JOSHUA W. GRANT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marines and sailors can suffer from visible injuries; wounded warriors can face missing limbs or burns from improvised explosive devices, but many service members suffer in a way no one ever sees. Mental health issues are prevalent in society and are present in service members alike. Although there are many resources available for those with mental health issues, many, especially in the military, don’t seek help due to the stigma associated with it. Herschel Walker, the winner of the Heisman Memorial Trophy in 1982, made a special visit to Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune Aug. 9 to speak out about mental health. The Heisman Trophy is presented to one college football player who is deemed the most outstanding player in a collegiate football season. Mental health issues are an ongoing struggle, but for the past four years, a new advocate in the battle against the stigma of mental health emerged as an example of strength. Walker said he suffered from mental health issues even as a child, though he didn’t know it at the time. In 2008, Walker published his autobiography titled “Breaking Free.” In the book he announced, for the first time, his battle with dissociative identity disorder, more commonly known as multiple personality disorder. The DID is characterized by blackouts or memory impairment of important information that cannot be linked to normal forgetfulness. Walker said because of his disorder he was unable to remember winning the Heisman Trophy. It wasn’t until he learned of more dangerous blackouts, in which he told his former wife he was going to kill her, that Walker decided he needed to get some help. Through the help of his pastor he found a hospital where he began treatment. Although DID can be dangerous, through treatment Walker is able to control it. Walker said he began to love

Lane explains how the hospital helps service members who battle against mental health problems. his personalities. He became the person he is because of their actions. “The first time I ever told myself that, I was in the hospital,” said Walker. “I love who I am, and if I have 25 different personalities I love them all, good, bad and ugly.” Walker said there is no shame in getting help. He en-

courages anybody with mental health issues, whether it is a loved one, a friend or a fellow service member, to seek help. “The best thing that ever happened to me was going to the hospital,” said Walker. “It was the proudest moment of my life.”

Correction facility debuts on base LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The Marine Corps Installations East Regional Brig, a brand-new, pre-trial holding facility aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, opened Aug. 14. The fresh facility is replacing the 44-year-old brig on base, bringing with it a slew of the latest and greatest features. Chief Warrant Officer 3 Glenn Watson, the brig’s commanding officer, described it as a welcome step “into the 21st century.” A big difference between the older building and this one is the security system, said Master Sgt. Cory Mitchell, the brig officer for Security Company, Headquarters and Support Battalion. “Everything is now touch-screen operated, and we can control everything at a single control panel now, whereas the old building still uses physical keys,” said Mitchell. “Also, there was no working camera system in the old building.” The safety of the Marines is the largest improvement between the old and new brig, said Mitchell. The older brig has many dark corners, hallways and other spaces that were impossible to watch, forcing Security Company’s Marines to risk danger while on duty. The new building has cameras and different monitors everywhere, making the job a much safer one. Another improvement, though not tangible, is the morale of the Marines assigned to the brig. “It’s so muggy in (the old brig), and the air conditioning barely works,” Mitchell said. “The Marine will now be able to come into a much cooler building. It makes for a better work environment.” The MCI East Regional Brig is the newest correction facility currently in the Marine Corps, housing the best equipment and latest technology available. Its design is vastly more efficient than its predecessors. Everything is consolidated into a one-story building, bringing personnel offices much closer together. Watson described it as a building “made for corrections,” since the flaws of the former brig’s layout were fixed in the new design. The new facility also requires less man hours to operate than the old brig, since it is a smaller building with modern security systems, which should make the Marines’ job easier while working shorter shifts. “We will still have plenty of Marines on post and in the facility, but the actual manpower itself will go down,” said Mitchell. “With it, we’re able to change their schedule in order to avoid having a single Marine on a 24-hour shift on a regular basis.” We’re really looking forward to (moving into) this facility, said Watson. It’s been a long time coming.

School of Infantry East’s Marine Combat Training Battalion held an assumption of command ceremony aboard Camp Geiger Aug. 10. Maj. Carl A. Havens relinquished command of MCTBn to Lt. Col. Billy R. Moore. “The training these Marines learn in only 29 days stays with them for the rest of their military careers,” said Col. Barry J. Fitzpatrick, commanding officer of SOI East. “It makes this job one of the most important in all Marine Corps training. It’s the training all Marines receive, no matter

what their (military occupational specialty) is.” Havens is returning to his former position as the battalion’s executive officer. “Being the commanding officer of MCTBn was quite challenging at times, but I learned a lot from it,” said Havens. Fitzpatrick said he is happy Havens is staying with the battalion and looks forward to continue to work with him in the future. Moore thanked his friends and family who were in attendance for coming to the ceremony. He said he looks forward to learning how to do the job and is happy Havens is staying nearby so he can learn from him as well.

Firestone, full car care center slated to move to base PFC. JOSHUA W. GRANT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

For years the auto service station aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune provided car care for service members, their families and other aspects of the military community. The service station is slated to close Aug. 31, but the closure is not permanent. The nationally known auto care provider Firestone was contracted to renovate and open at the current auto care center. The contract was developed to provide con-

sistent service across military bases and installations nationwide. With Firestone taking the reins, the service center will soon be open seven days a week. Firestone will complete renovations and is scheduled to open in six to eight weeks. On base, Firestone will upgrade the center with brand-new equipment. The station will include its own part departments. The station will also sell tires and complete everything from tune-ups to oil changes. Carlton Mencer, director of the retail division of Marine Corps Community Services aboard the base, said

the auto care center currently charges prices relative to any other station out in town. Prices are not expected to change much with Firestone taking over. In order to make the transition easier on customers, the auto hobby shop on base plans to take over some of the jobs of the service center while it’s undergoing renovations. The hobby shop will offer simple services including oil changes, tire rotation and minor brake work. Mencer said although the service center is leaving and Firestone is taking over, the flow through the center is expected to increase, because Firestone is a well known company.

The following businesses are designated by the base commander as “off-limits”

Their field mess hall featured a salad and fruit bar with crisp grapes, juicy watermelon chunks, bright peppers and everything else needed to create the perfect salad. The main meals included chicken à la king, rice, peas, cornbread and shrimp Creole. “You can get the exact same quality (in the field) as you would inside of a dining facility,” said Hoschild. Hoschild, along with most of the other Marines present, feels food is a primary cause of motivation for troops. “They’re out there in the field, and the only thing they’re looking forward to is getting in the rack and getting a hot meal. It’s what we’re going to provide for them,” added Hoschild. The Marines of Food Service Company worked on the meal throughout the morning, and served the trays to the weary Marines in front of them. They cooked and fed the masses before they were able to sit down and enjoy the taste of their own labors. Food Service Company passed the qualifying round and is now able to represent II Marine Expeditionary Force when they compete against the rest of the Marine Corps for the Maj. Gen. W.P.T.

This new state-of-the-art center includes expanded space and additional donor beds to help make donating life-saving plasma even easier and more convenient. Biotest Pharmaceuticals operates all their centers in a manner which ensures quality, avoids product shortages and honors their strong commitment to their customers. Each Biotest Plasma Center undergoes numerous inspections and approvals, as well as being licensed by multiple regulatory agencies. To further ensure the quality of the plasma collected, all Biotest plasma donors undergo a medical examination and a confidential medical history interview. Prior to each donation, each donor must

go through a rigorous screening and testing process to ensure they are healthy and meet all regulatory requirements before their plasma is collected to be manufactured into life-saving therapies. Plasma donors provide a vital role and help countless others that rely on plasma based therapies: people with severe burns in need of albumin; people with hemophilia in need of clotting factors; people with immunodeficiency in need of immune globulins, just to name a few. As a Biotest plasma donor, you may also be eligible to participate in one of our many specialty plasma programs. Laboratory test will be performed on samples of your plasma to determine if you have an acceptable antibody level to qualify for one of them. People all over the world are dependent on the willingness of others to volunteer and donate their life saving plasma.

In addition to respecting and appreciating volunteers, they are also compensated for their time and effort for doing so. New Donors can earn $70 this week for their first two donations. Wouldn’t you like to feel good and help others, too? The lives of many rests in the choices of few! Biotest’s life-saving history began when it was established in 2007. Biotest Pharmaceuticals owns and manages twelve plasmapheresis centers across the United States and operates a high-tech manufacturing facility in Boca Raton, Fl. Biotest Pharmaceuticals is a subsidiary of Biotest AG, a German-based global provider of plasma protein therapies that employs more than 650 people in the U.S. and approximately 1,700 people worldwide.

Class of 2025 takes first steps toward future AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

A

new member of the Class of 2025 can hardly contain his excitement about the first day of school as he waits anxiously by the

front door. His shoes are tied, backpack is strapped and his smile is permanently plastered as he unknowingly prepares to take his first step toward his future. Looking on unnoticed, his mother holds back tears of joy and feelings of nervousness, wondering how this day came so quickly.

“When you think about major life events, the first day of school usually comes to mind,” said Julie Fulton, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune school liaison. “It’s a huge transition for the entire family.” In an effort to make the change as smooth as possible, Fulton, along with several members of base organizations, invited parents to bring their children to the annual Ready, Set, Go to Kindergarten information fair at the Russell and Marine SEE SCHOOL 7D

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.

‘Ted’ pushes boundaries, explores crude limits Now playing at Camp Lejeune “TED” (R) “Ted” is a comedy centered on a man and his best friend, a teddy bear who came to life as a result of a childhood wish. Mark Wahlberg (“Contraband,” “The Fighter,” “The Departed”) stars as John Bennett, a middleaged man who is still dealing with his childhood cherished teddy bear named Ted. Long ago John made a Christmas miracle happen by bringing his one and only friend, his beloved teddy bear, to life. The two grew up together and Ted has refused to leave his side ever since. However, Ted has grown into an ill-behaved, foul-mouthed, potsmoking and extremely inappropriate bear, voiced by Seth McFarlane (TV’s “Family Guy”). Now the time has come when John must choose to stay with his girlfriend or keep his friendship with his crude and horny teddy bear. The conflicts emerge when the smack-talking Ted’s irresponsible and vulgar slacker lifestyle comes between John’s attempt to embrace adulthood and his love relationship. Mila Kunis (“The Black Swan,” “Friends With Benefits”) plays Lori, John’s tolerant girlfriend, who has been caught in the middle for the past four years and is getting tired of sharing

John with his boorish friend. Also co-starring is Giovanni Ribisi (“The Rum Diary”) as Donny; Patrick Warburton (TV’s “Family Guy”) as Guy; Laura Vandervoort (“This Means War”) as Tanya; Jessica Stroup (“The Informers”) as Tracy; and Joel McHale (“The Big Year”) as Rex, Lori’s sleazy boss. Funny Man Seth McFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice of Ted. “Ted” is a live action, computer generated animated film where the teddy bear is concerned. The strangely funny, shocking, and very raunchy and, at times, offensive adult comedy satire pushes all boundaries but also has a lot of heart. Now playing in Jacksonville “HOPE SPRINGS” (PG-13) “Hope Springs” is a romantic comedy and adult drama about a burnt-out old married couple trying to save their marriage. After thirty years of marriage, the middleaged Midwestern couple has lost their magic and intimacy. Determined to get their groove back, they attend an intensive, week-long counseling session to work on their relationship. Meryl Streep (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “Julie & Julia,” “Doubt”) plays Kay, a dissatisfied

and frustrated wife who is trying to rekindle the romance in her stagnant marriage. Tommy Lee Jones (“Men in Black” series, “No Country for Old Men,” “The Fugitive”) plays Arnold, the grumpy, steadfast husband who can’t waver from his daily routine. The two are a devoted couple, but decades of bland marriage life have left Kay wanting to spice things up a little and reconnect with her resistant husband. When she hears of a renowned couple specialist in a small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough, but the real challenge for both comes as they shed their

Director David Frankel (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “Marley & Me,” “The Big Year”) paired two of the most beloved and talented actors, who know just how to play it as a couple in a dying marriage and enduring a weekend of therapy to try to save their floundering relationship. Such contrasting actors as Streep and Jones are

well matched here and bring one of the best performances of the year. “Hope Springs” is a charming and humorous, but honest portrayal of married life, from character’s realistic arguments and approach of delicate subjects, right down to their non-glamorous wardrobe. Finally, here is a movie for the older much under-appreciated adult film audience. Ms. Huneycutt is the public affairs assistant at the base Public Affairs Office.

Members of the incoming freshmen class watch a presentation during “Fresh Start,” the orientation for new students at Lejeune High School Aug. 17. Students toured the school, met teachers and received their class schedules for the new year while interacting with their fellow classmates.

‘Fresh Start’ at LHS kicks off new year AMY BINKLEY Assistant managing editor

Rites of passage mark significant milestones throughout the course of everyone’s life. Soon, thousands of members of the Class of 2016 will follow in the footsteps of many who came before them in the environment that will most impact their formative teenage years. Four years of high school loom before the incoming freshmen class, but for the students at Lejeune High School aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, the new year means a fresh start. Several freshmen were able to meet with teachers, learn their way to classes and form friendships among their peers at “Fresh Start,” the orientation for new students, at LHS Aug. 17. “(Students) gain preparation for life in the classroom,” explained Betty Thompson, the school nurse. “It forces them to learn, speak and listen.” Classes, clubs and academics tend to take the spotlight throughout teens’ high school years, but one of the most important lessons they’ll learn is how to build relationships. For the students at LHS, forming new relationships isn’t anything new. Military life demands an ability to adapt to new situations and surroundings, but just because they’re used to change doesn’t make them exempt to the pressures of the typical high school experience. Members of the Lejeune Theatre Guild took the opportunity to lend a helping hand to the wide-

eyed freshmen entering the “Keeping the Peace: Positive Relationships and Conflict Resolution” class given by drama teacher Steven Barker. The students acted out different scenarios of relationships the incoming class may encounter in the hallways of LHS and focused specifically on bullying. “We know it happens in school but it also happens on Facebook, Twitter and other social media,” Barker announced to the students. “Understand one thing. Any bullying will be met with consequences.” Barker, along with his seasoned students, assured the school’s freshest faces they have comrades in their newest endeavor and will help foster healthy relationships among not only other students, but teachers and parents. “The adults are here to make sure you have a positive experience,” Barker noted. “Your parents are growing along with you. They have a good sense of who you are, but you are changing.” Thompson, who worked in the school system for more than 20 years, didn’t seem surprised by the nervousness the freshmen exuded, but she knows within a few weeks they’ll feel right at home at LHS. “When a student trusts an adult at this school, they feel safe, and it’s something they need,” she said. “The parents need to feel it as well.” She also pointed out how the next four years will be filled with triumphs and mistakes for the teens, whether they stay at LHS or move on to another school. “Working with kids (in this environment), you

get to know who they are – their goals, their dreams, everything,” she remarked. “Sometimes, however, you have to step back and let them fall. Life has to teach them. It’s hard because you don’t want them to make mistakes, but it’s reality.” Although no one knows what the school year may bring, the school’s newest class won’t have to worry about navigating their journey by themselves. They have an entire student body ready to guide them and when challenges come, they will not stand alone.

I often hear the phrase, “When one door closes another one opens.” I think this statement drifts through conversations about relationships, job opportunities, financial purchases, etc. Perhaps you may also hear, “If that door opens again, I will take the opportunity.” Sometimes thinking about these statements is avoided and at times the principle behind the statement is almost considered, inspired, infallible or a proverb. I would argue any door open is simply an open door. The question we should ask is if walking through the door is going to be beneficial. The bible tells us if anyone lacks wisdom let them ask of God for wisdom. When a door is open, ask God for wisdom to know if it is a door that should be entered. There was a man who was told to do something from the highest authority. After he considered the task, he declined and went the opposite direction. Every door opened for him to go the way he desired but not the way he was told. He found some transportation at a good rate and purchased the fare. He found a very private spot where he could relax and eventually get into a deep sleep. While he was resting, everyone aboard was tormented; in fact all of them feared for their lives. In the deepest sleep, the man was awoken for assistance. Every person aboard was crying to God for help and now they were asking this man to do the same. They said, “Get up, call upon your God. Perhaps your God will be concerned about us so we will not perish.” The doors were open for this man. He escaped the task, he thought, found a ship at the right time, right price and a place where he could rest and go where he wanted. The doors were open, so he went through them. Without thinking about the consequences of those decisions, he put many lives at risk. When someone offers you something and you know it is not the right thing to do, don’t go through the door. When someone invites you into a relationship, and you are already in a committed relationship, the consequences are endless. Disobedience has its consequences. Ask Jonah. It landed him in the belly of a great fish.

T

he final rays of summer beckon the beginning of school, but there’s always time for a last lick of ice cream. Several families celebrated the end of the season with the classic snack at the Exceptional Family Member Program’s Ice Cream Social at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Aug. 16. “The timing is great for families,” said Tracey Sosa, EFMP program manager, about the event. “Going back to school can be a stressful time. We have a lot of resources to help with the transition.” While children lined up for their free ice cream cones, bars and cups of swirled flavors, their parents made their way around the room visiting with organizations like F.O.C.U.S., Marine Corps Family Team Building and representatives from the local school systems. “We’re so happy we have so many resources for people,” Sosa admitted. “Fewer people are lined up for ice cream than for more information. It’s a great combination for the families to have fun as well as utilize the resources.” Sosa noted the attendance for the event was double than that of last year. “It’s a great way for families to connect and learn from each other,” she said. Caring for children with special needs, whether physical, mental or emotional, presents a unique lifestyle not just for the child but for the entire family. However, with the help of programs like EFMP, parents breathe a sigh of relief in knowing they have others to support them. “Events like this are great,” explained Linda Coleman, a military parent involved with EFMP. “They give families with children with special needs a special event just for them.” She added how nice it was to see the other organizations offering resources and answering questions any of the parents had.

“We have so much available vailaable to take advantage of,” she noted. “We might ht have h greater stresses, but (EFMP) is really providing ovid ding the information we need.” The room filled with gigg giggles gles after the children finished their treatss an and nd moved on to other activities like playing with th stickers, s coloring and running around the stagee ar area. rea. To the average observer, ver, they appear like any other children, but pare parents ents and members of EFMP know there’s something meth hing much more unique about them. They’re nott on only nly special, they’re exceptional. “We want families to ma make ake connections with other families,” affirmed d Da Daryl aryl Witt, training, education and outreach spe specialist ecialist with EFMP. “They need to know they y ar are re not alone in their challenges.” He explained the greatest atesst resource families have are re each e other.

Children search for shells by seashore LANCE CPL. SCOTT A. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Dozens of children gathered at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Aug. 15 to learn about different shells and fossils they can find at the shore. Marine Corps Community Services coordinated and hosted Expedition Onslow for children and parents alike to give them an educational and adventurous outlet in the midst of the long summer. Ruth Gooch, the reservations assistant with MCCS, taught the children about different sea animals that wash up on Onslow Beach from time to time. “We’ve done a different activity every month of the summer,” said Gooch. “In June, we held a workshop about mammals in North Carolina and wildlife on

base. July’s class was aimed at teaching kids about the history of Onslow County. We try to teach them something while they are out of school for summer vacation.” Gooch displayed many examples of fossilized remains and a wide variety of shells for the children to look at. She gave them a background of many of her fossils, which included the jaws of a diverse group of fish and other aquatic animals. “The children love to see the collections, but many of the parents enjoy learning about the history and have as much fun as their kids,” said Gooch. After approximately an hour of learning, the children and parents took to the shores and began searching the sand for shells. Children grabbed their buckets and shovels to dig while some decided to look in the water.

“Unfortunately not much washed up on the beach lately, so the children weren’t able to find very many shells,” Gooch said. “There just isn’t a lot some weeks.” Gooch said MCCS is hosting a fossil fair in September, which will feature a guest speaker, who is a paleontologist

from the Smithsonian Institute. “The fossil fair will go more in-depth into fossils, and we are expecting to have a large turnout,” said Gooch. Gooch said the expedition was a huge success and really enjoyed having children ask her questions about fossils, which she calls her passion in life.
