As the morning sun rose, the sound of helicopter rotor blades could be heard from the flight line at Forward Operating Base Payne recently. Carrying their gear, and enough food and water to sustain themselves for 48 hours, Marines with 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 6, awaited their turn to board Marine CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters that would insert them deep into the Khaneshin District of Afghanistan. The main purpose of the

operation was to disrupt enemy movement in the area. The Marines where accompanied by four members of the Afghan Border Patrol. According to 1st Lt. Ted Rose, platoon commander, with 3rd LAR, the presence of Marines and Afghan forces helps deter the enemy from using the area for trafficking. “This area is a known area for facilitation and trafficking for the enemy. They’ll move people, drugs or weapons through here,” said Rose. Once the helicopters landed, the Marines ran out and began their patrol to what would be their makeshift base for the next two days. The patrol base was

nothing more than a sandy area concealed by sand dunes, small vegetation and tan netting they carried with them. After the Marines made it to their patrol base’s location, one group left to patrol the local area while another group set up the netting to provided shade from the sun. One challenge the Marines faced was being out of their comfort zone. Since they are a light armored reconnaissance battalion, they are used to moving inside of light armored vehicles, not being inserted into areas by helicopters. Without vehicles, Marines must carry everything they need for their operation with them.

Packs weighed more than 70 pounds. “Being an LAR unit, we usually have vehicles to carry all our gear,” said Staff Sgt. Larry Kochevar, platoon sergeant. “Trying to carry water, food and shade for ourselves to sustain for two to three days gets pretty heavy. It’s pretty tiring for the Marines.” Kochevar said another challenge was the temperature. “One of the hardest parts of this operation, just like the other ones, is the heat,” he said. “It’s hot, really hot. You can’t really get out of the heat, and you have to keep hydrated.” During their 48 hours in the Khaneshin District, the

Marines conducted four patrols. They walked through villages, talked to locals and gathered intelligence. When the Marines first arrived, not many people wanted to talk to them mostly because Marines were viewed as outsiders. But by their last patrol, children were running up to them with smiles. A village elder asked for medical help, which was provided by a Navy corpsman with the platoon. On the morning of the third day, the Marines once again waited for helicopters to arrive. Except this time they were

Patrolling through the streets of the Khaneshin District of Afghanistan with tape measures, papers and pens, the Marines of 3rd Civil Affairs Group checked up on various projects in the area recently. During the patrol, Marines talked with shop owners in the district’s bazaar and stopped at a school and health clinic currently under construction. “Our role here is just to make sure the projects are going smoothly and completed on time,” said Sgt. Kairo Ortez, civil affairs noncommissioned officer, 3rd Civil Affairs Group. Ortez says the projects should be done by the end of this year. Local Afghans provide labor for the projects, and the civil affairs team coordinates with local national and American contractors for supplies. “The projects are supposed to stimulate the economy and give the locals some type of ownership,” said Ortez. “Hopefully this will make them take better care of them too.” Civil affairs Marines determined these projects were necessary by handing out surveys and talking with locals. On their most recent visit to the district, Marines talked to bazaar shop owners before making their Photo by Cpl. Ed Galo way to the school and clinic. Sgt. Kairo Ortez, civil affairs noncommissioned offi cer, shakes hands with “Education is one of the top priorities around local children in the Khaneshin District bazaar while talking with shop owners here,” said Ortez, who is an infantryman by trade. recently. Ortez, an infantry rifleman by trade, was part of a civil affairs group patrol that inspected projects being built in Khaneshin District. SEE DISTRICT 7A

Buying, financing overpriced electronics Did you just purchase a computer, flat screen television or other consumer electronics item from a little known store that pops up only in military towns? Did you look online only to find out you could have bought the item for a heck of a lot less elsewhere? After listening to a sales pitch focusing almost entirely on monthly payments, did you take out a high interest loan to buy the item? Did you have to sign a consent form allowing the creditor to call your commanding officer in the event you default on the loan? Were there extra, incomprehensible fees added? Did you experience any issues concerning merchandise delivery or quality? If so, we need to talk. Over the years, I saw businesses hawking all kinds of products to troops, principally because they want to lend money at terrible terms and conditions for the purchase of expensive items. Sale of the product, typically a grossly overpriced computer, may just be the means of selling a loan. The focus is on making a loan and then selling that loan to another, related company. Though the products change over the years – the pitch used to be for buying clubs or for fancy cameras, and photographic development services – the business model remains the same: target junior troops, crank up the base price of the product sold, rope the troop into an unfavorable loan, add various junk fees, misleading statements concerning warranties, hidden commissions to financ-

ing companies, and sell the package to some third party financer. Tie it all up in a bow with required payments by allotment, authorization to raid your bank account if the allotment fails, and permission to call your CO if you default. Occasionally, when sufficient information concerning abusive activities of a business is collected, they are sued by the state attorney general and designated off limits by the installation commander. It’s what happened with a business called Smart Buy, which sold computers, IPODs and televisions in military towns including Jacksonville, N.C., until they were put off limits by several installation commanders around the country and successfully sued by the Attorney General of New York. Another company, Rome Finance, was sued by the Attorney General of Tennessee and ordered by a Tennessee Court to pay over $10 million in damages for ripping off service members at Fort Campbell. Rome Finance declared bankruptcy in an attempt to avoid paying. Sometimes, businesses change their name and continue to operate as before. Here are some warning signs: - The same item can be found elsewhere for much less as many large retailers list prices on-line - Targeting of junior military personnel - Ads emphasizing monthly payment but failing to disclose the annual interest rate

- Failing to disclose a large portion of the fee is going to a third party financer. - Failing to make disclosures about the loan required by the Truth in Lending Act. TILA requires disclosure of all the costs of financing, including any mark ups in the base price and fees to third parties. TILA also requires lenders to tell consumers, in writing, the real annual interest rate, the cost of financing over the course of the loan, the amount financed, and, in closedended contracts for a one-time purchase, the total price after all the payments are made. This last number can be so large it can scare away potential customers. Accordingly, some vendors pretend to give you open-ended credit, a line of credit for other purchases, which may be quickly taken away after the purchase. -High interest rates -Additional required fees especially if accompanied by a contrary written acknowledgment the consumer isn’t required to buy the extra items -Requirement to sign a statement purporting to allow the creditor to contact with CO. Such consent, given prior to any default, is unlawful and ineffective under North Carolina law. -A requirement to sign a Statement of Understanding contradicting the sales pitch of the terms of the contract you just signed. If any of this sounds familiar, we need to talk. Contact me for confidential interview at Michael.

Returning to roots in retirement The two Armed Forces Retirement Homes located in Washington, D.C., and Gulfport, Miss., are available to retirees with a slight wait to be accepted. The requirements include retirees with at least 20 years of service, those who are unable to earn a livelihood due to a service connected disability, and those who served in a war theater. They must be able to care for their own needs, attend a central dining facility for meals, and keep all medical appointments at time of admission. If their health diminishes after arriving, assisted living and long-term care are available at both sites. These are safe and beautiful facilities with many accommodations available such as dining facilities, shopping, barber shops, various recreation facilities onsite, medical attendance and much more. The newly reconstructed site in Gulfport provides an average room of 430 square feet to each resident. The cost is very reasonable at both sites. Independent-living residents must contribute 35 percent of total current income but not to exceed $1,238 each month. Assisted-living residents must contribute 40 percent but not to exceed $1,856 each month. Long-term care residents contribute 65 percent but not to exceed $3,094 each month. The rates are very good when compared to

civilian facilities, which charge between $3,400 and $5,200 per month. The true intrinsic value at these facilities is the companionship of the fellow residents. All are retirees with similar life stories of dedication, challenge, and resourcefulness to continue through life after serving as protector of this nation and its people. Both sites were visited by the Retired Activities Office coordinator, and the care and love shown to the residents by the staff is impressive. There is a thriving, alert, and progressive population not often seen in local civilian-care facilities. The difference lies in the fact the residents have a common background and a bond to motivate each other, along with a staff who honors the resident’s service and sacrifice made. Potential applicants should tour the sites. Schedule a visit by simply calling 800-332-3527 or 800-422-9988. Individuals visiting the Washington site are entitled to complimentary lodging in guest rooms and a limited number of meals. For those interested, there will a representative from the AFRH at the 2012 Camp Lejeune Retiree Appreciation Day Sept. 29 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune at Marston Pavilion.

Retired Military Breakfast Located at the Ball Center (Old Staff NCO Club) Aug. 25 Social hour will begin at 7 a.m., with breakfast at 8 a.m. All retirees, active duty, reserve, veterans and community friends are invited to attend the breakfast.

MCO 11000.22 PROHIBITED DOG BREEDS Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is enforcing the Marine Corps order on banned breeds and pet registration. This is not a new implementation and not specific to only Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Marine Corps Order P11000.22, specifically chapter 6, released in August of 2009, mandated all installations ban any breed of pit bull, Rottweiler or wolf hybrid dog from residing on base. It also prevented visitors from bringing banned breeds on base. At the time the order went into effect, owners of these breeds were not forced to get rid of their dogs. Residents had one year to submit for a waiver of prohibited pets. Owners seeking a waiver were required to certify their animal with a nationally recognized temperament test before being eligible for the waiver. Currently, MCB Camp Lejeune is required by the order to enforce the policy that banned breeds must be removed from base housing by Sept. 30. This stipulation has been in the order since its inception and families residing on base were made aware of the deadline upon implementation of the order, moving into housing with a banned breed or prior to acquiring one.

Additional hour of nighttime training during summer months Residents aboard base and in the surrounding community may hear artillery, mortar and aircraft noise an additional hour past the normal midnight cutoff time Aug. 20 through 24. Officials at Camp Lejeune have granted the one-hour extension to allow specific ground and air combat elements to complete their nighttime training objectives. The community’s patience and understanding is appreciated as the base strives to provide the best possible training for deploying Marines and sailors.

Martial arts creating warrior instructors in Kuwait SGT. RICHARD BLUMENSTEIN 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit


ourteen Marines with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit volunteered their time in Kuwait to learn something profound – how to train warriors in the Marine Corps brand of martial arts. Marines from Combat Logistics Battalion 24 and Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment are currently punching, kicking and grappling their way through a two-week Marine Corps Martial Arts Program instructor course. According to Marine

Corps Order 1500.54A, MCMAP is an integrated martial art designed for and executed by all Marines throughout their career and a revolutionary step in the development of martial skills for Marines, replacing all other close combat-related systems preceding its introduction. It addresses the full spectrum of the force continuum of the battlefield and fulfills the need to build Marines with the mental resolve and character traits required to succeed in the future. MCMAP contains a similar belt system as civilian martial arts; it begins with tan belt and continues up through several degrees of black belt. Instructor trainers are the Marines responsible

for teaching the necessary skills to Marines. The course is taking place because a handful of MCMAP instructor trainers, the Marines who train and certify instructors, realized the MEU would be spending more than a month conducting sustainment training in Kuwait, and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to run an instructor course, said Sgt. Jose Alvarez, a 2nd degree martial arts instructor trainer with the BLT. “The fact we are going to be here for this long created a great opportunity for us to do the training,” he said. Marines volunteered for the course immediately. “I’m very excited about it, it’s a great course,” said

Cpl. Charles McDonald, a squad leader with the BLT. Those Marines are now engaged in a course curriculum focusing on improving their martial arts abilities, developing their warrior ethos, and teaching them how to instruct. “We teach them the synergy of MCMAP,” Alvarez said. “When you create an instructor, you want to make sure they are mentally strong, have a good will and strong character, and also are able perform physically.” In the training, the Marines assume the role of both instructor and student. They lead each other in various MCMAP training sessions ranging from striking and grappling matches to small group discussion about

warrior ethos. The first few days of the course serve as an introduction. The Marines conduct a physical fitness test and combat fitness test to ensure they are able to handle the challenges of the course. Their skills in MCMAP are also evaluated by the course instructors. “We want to make sure they overcome any stage fright they may have,” Alvarez said. “It’s not about just being a warrior; it’s about being a responsible warrior,” McDonald said. The course has no shortage of physical challenges and is specially designed to push the Marines to their limit so they can learn to instruct while exhausted, Alvarez said.

“You can never really judge someone until they are tired,” he said. “Once they are tired, it is when their true self will come out. It’s when you can see who the real person is, and we look for it.” The Marines are constantly under the evaluation of the instructors to make sure they are able to handle the difficulties associated with teaching MCMAP. They receive written tests and practical application evaluations throughout the course, said Alvarez. Once the Marines complete the course, they will be able to teach and certify Marines in MCMAP up to their level of proficiency. More importantly – they will better be able to train warriors how to fight.

Marines conjure new image for community

Marine Expeditionary Unit service members prep festival grounds CPL. MICHAEL LOCKETT 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Clearing tree lines. Trimming low hanging branches. Mowing the lawn. Re-plumbing the midfield water spigots. Putting up new wire fences. Excavating an old, decrepit flagpole. For the Marines and sailors of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, July 20 was a busy day. “We’re clearing the grounds and getting ready for the festival,” said Lisa Hamner, chairman of the Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival. The festival, slated for Aug. 11-12, is hosted at the Sneads Ferry Community Center. It will feature fun, food, games, and of course, shrimp. They expect around 10,000 visitors from the surrounding area, which includes the nearby military installations. The project was led by the noncommissioned of-

ficers of the 26th MEU, with teams tackling each area under the supervision of sergeants from different sections of the MEU. While one group cleared the fence line on the east side of the area, another helped cut back undergrowth and branches on the west side. A third group cleaned up the area around the pavilion at the end of the field and erected a new fence to help delineate two areas for the festival. Other Marines worked individually or in pairs to tidy up trees, flagpoles or mow the lawn. “It’s a nice change of pace. I enjoy working with my hands,” said Lance Cpl. Christopher Stark, an operations clerk. Volunteering their time and effort, the Marines are working to present a different image to the local population than the one typically conjured when the term ‘military’ comes up. “It helps people put a

better face on what the military does. We do more than just fight wars,” said Lt. Cmdr. Troy K. Todd, 26th MEU chaplain. The project, part of the command’s desire to increase its outreach with the community, will help the non-profit organization take care of grounds maintenance essential for the setup of the shrimp festival. “It’s good for Marines to give back to a local community around the base,” said Todd. And give back they did. Performing grounds maintenance that would have been prohibitively time consuming for the few permanent volunteers on staff, the Marines accomplished their tasks in a matter of hours, rather than days or weeks. “We usually get a few [volunteers], but volunteers are hard to come by,” Photo by Cpl. Michael S. Lockett said Hamner. “It’s a major, time-consuming event tak- Marines and sailors from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit gather around a en care of. Handled.

Blood brothers in arms deployed together


Regional Command Southwest

Brothers in arms, a term known by many Marines and thrown around amongst them to define the relationship they have toward one another. For Lt. Col. Michael Murchison and Capt. Nicholas Murchison, this saying rings truer than ever: they are real brothers. Separated by nearly eight years in age, the elder Murchison paved the way for the younger brother to follow in his footsteps toward the Marine Corps. “The recruiter showed up on my doorstep on a rainy, Tuesday afternoon,” said the elder brother. “I went to go talk to him, and he informed me of the officer programs and the chance to get an ROTC scholarship.” “When he went to college I was in fifth grade,” said the younger brother. “By the time he graduated from Michigan I was in seventh grade.” During the time Michael was going through the Reserve Officer Training Course, Nicholas would frequent many of the ceremonies. “I kind of grew up going to all the ceremonies and getting a taste of the Marine Corps that way,” said Nicholas. “The ceremonies and the traditions behind everything, and just getting to see what they did was really impressive.” With no family history in the Marine Corps, one could ask why the Marine Corps? “I knew you were going to ask that question,” said Michael, between laughter after being asked about their military family history. “No, honestly, none. Our Dad was drafted a couple times and managed to get several deferments during the Vietnam era.” “Our grandparents were too old for World War II and too young for World War I,” added the big brother. “I honestly don’t know if you can find anybody in the history books even remotely related to us who ever served in the military.” A point they laugh about every time it is brought up.

Marines and sailors slated to deploy with Combat Logistics Battalion 8, 2nd Marine Logistics Group listen to a brief at the battalion’s combat operations center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune July 24. A unit’s COC is an epicenter of information and logistics.

Service members make combat operations center billet look easy PFC. FRANKLIN MERCADO 2nd Marine Logistics Group

Cords hang from the walls, modems work to their full capabilities, maps cover the room and countless monitors work in unison. To some this may sound like a setting for a movie taking place in the intergalactic future, but for the Marines staffing the combat operations center in support of the 2nd Marine Logistics Group’s upcoming Afghanistan deployment, this is an all too familiar scene. Marines and sailors who will be deploying work in Combat Logistics Battalion 8’s mock COC in preparation for the move to southern Helmand province. All members of the operations hub are required to work together as a team, since they are responsible for vital pieces of the unit’s information, statistics and missions. “Our job is crucial and everyone needs to know their duties,” said Staff Sgt. Derrick Lauderdale, the

watch chief for CLB-8. “Our job can mean the difference between saving lives and [losing] lives.” Crucial duties add significant stressors to the job of a servicemember in the COC. If a unit of Marines embarks on a patrol or convoy, it is the combat operations center’s responsibility to keep accountability of the Marines, their packs, weapons and other logistics. In addition to keeping count of these Marines, the COC is the only point of contact the patrolling unit has with home base. As if these strenuous duties weren’t enough, the majority of the Marines working in the operations center have never worked in one. Learning the programs, systems and duties associated with the job is a challenge in itself for Marines such as Cpl. Christopher P. McGhee, a motor vehicle mechanic. “I’ve never worked in a COC, but a lot of the habits I had as a mechanic carried over,” he said. “As a mechanic you have to be tedious

and have attention to detail, it’s the same in the COC. “You have to pay attention and make sure you are doing the job right the first time.” Though he is one of many who never performed in his current billet, McGhee feels it has helped him and the Marines around him work together as one. “Since we all started at the same level, we all have helped each other learn and understand the programs and jobs we each have,” McGhee said. “Our communication is excellent and everyone is working together fine.” The accomplishment of duties and responsibilities of a Marine or sailor assigned to the COC are undoubtedly critical to mission success. Though the majority of the 13man team running the COC has never done it before, the 2nd MLG is dedicating quality time, gear and training to ensuring their command post is run by a group of stellar service men and women.

Afghan forces take security lead, bolster defense in Helmand STAFF SGT. BRIAN BUCKWALTER

Regimental Combat Team 6

As Marines drove along the narrow dirt roads of southern Helmand province they watched farmers tend to their corn fields and livestock. They saw children running alongside vehicles and swimming in a river that irrigates the fields surrounding it. Trucks carrying bags of wheat and other products passed the Marines’ convoy regularly on their way to deliver their goods to bazaars and customers in the area. Also on this road in the Central Helmand River Valley are Afghan National Army recruiting billboards showing soldiers smiling in uniform. There are anti-insurgency billboards too. One depicts a man in jail, his head in his hands. A thought bubble over his head shows the wife and children he left behind. The billboards reinforce what everyone in the area is seeing, more ANA influence and fewer insurgents. It’s not uncommon to see ANA soldiers or Afghan police race up and down the road in their pickups, running between their manned checkpoints and outposts along the route. In places like Marjah, Nawa and Garmsir, Afghan forces are out in front, providing security for their own people. Marines, who were fighting alongside Afghan forces, are stepping back.

“It was shoulder to shoulder,” said Sgt. Maj. Matthew Putnam, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 6. “Now it’s over the shoulder.” This shift began around the beginning of the year, said Col. Roger B. Turner Jr., the former commanding officer of the area of operations in southern Helmand province. The Marine Corps’ mission in the region is transitioning from Marines being out in front leading operations to Afghans taking the lead. Marines, as part of Security Force Assistance Advisory Teams, are starting to focus primarily on advising and training Afghan forces, according to International Security Force officials. Marines continue to provide assistance in capabilities the Afghans are still developing, like battlefield medical evacuations and explosive ordnance disposal. This shift in roles is counterintuitive to Marines who are trained to be combat focused, said Col. John R. Shafer, commanding officer, RCT-6. The regiment now controls the Marine battalions in southern Helmand province. “We love to run to the sound of the gun,” he said. But by putting Afghans in the lead, “success is never having to leave the (base).” As long as there is still a threat, the assistance teams will conduct operations alongside their Afghan partners, ISAF offi-

cials said. But, the primary focus of the assistance teams will be to advise and train their Afghan counterparts in everything from infantry tactics and counter-improvised explosive device techniques to vehicle maintenance and administration. Putnam saw the results of increased partnering with Afghans in southwest Afghanistan. He was last in Helmand province less than a year ago with 3rd Bn., 8th Marines. He and his Marines were providing security along Route 611 south of Sangin while it was being paved and “nothing was partnered” where they were, he said. Now deployed to southern Helmand province, Putnam said the Afghans who are mentored by Marines are successfully conducting security operations. “I never expected it to be so secure in less than 11 months,” he said. In Marjah, the ANA are “taking care of their own business,” said Lance Cpl. Terance Bonelli, infantryman, 3rd Bn., 8th Marines. Bonelli occasionally patrols with Afghan soldiers and said the ANA continues to build its confidence and are increasingly involved in security missions. With this larger, more capable ANA presence, Marines are outside the wire less frequently. Lance Cpl. Ryan Kreeger, an infantryman, said a friend of his who was leaving Marjah had some advice for Kreeger on how

Alexander Wu (center), a platoon commander with 1st Combat Engineer Battalion, prior to departing on a route clearance mission in Helmand province’s Nawa District recently. to pass the time. “If you can fit an Xbox in your pack, do it.” Afghans in the entire region, from Marjah to Garmsir, are enjoying relative quiet without much insurgent activity in the Central Helmand River Valley. These people endured about 30 years of turmoil and have had absolutely no predictability in their lives until we were able to get ahead of the security about 18 months ago,” Turner said in a recent RCT-5 story. “They really cherish the security they have.” “We’ve pushed them to the point where they can’t take us head to head,” said Lance Cpl. Jorg Esquivel, an infantryman, about the insurgents. As the security situation con-

tinues to improve, far fewer Marines are in the area than there were just a few months ago. Putnam said that 3rd Bn., 8th Marines, took over what was the responsibility of three battalions before: 2nd Bn., 9th Marines, was in Marjah; 2nd Bn., 6th Marines, was in Nawa; and 3rd Bn., 3rd Marines, was in Garmsir. ISAF officials said because the transition of security responsibility to ANSF is conditions based, fewer Marines doesn’t mean less security. It means Afghan forces are more capable. Officials also said they’re committed to ensuring Afghans have full security responsibility of their country by the end of 2014.

BROTHERS FROM 4A With no family ties to the military, two of the four boys brought up in the Murchison household raised their right hand and pledged the oath. Growing up in Detroit, the two brothers lived under the same roof, ask them and they would say uncomfortably close at times. “We grew up in a very tiny house in Redford,” said the youngest Murchison. “We knew there was an issue when we all started to get older and come back and we couldn’t fit in the house together anymore.” “Tiny three bedroom, one and a half bath, the half bath was in the basement that nobody wanted to go into,” said Michael. Growing up together in such a “cozy” home garnered a certain type of behavior and connection amongst the brothers. “To this day we can’t walk past each other without flinching,” said Michael. “You’re kind of waiting on somebody to step on a foot, or hit a knee or hit a kidney, just cause we were in such tight quarters growing up.” “It was always con-

trolled chaos though,” said Nicholas. “Mom and Dad did a good job of keeping us from going to blows.” Their parental influence kept them away from the necks of their brothers and guided them inadvertently toward their careers in the Marine Corps. “I’ve always said they’re the greatest logisticians in the world,” said Michael. “They allowed all four of us to play two sports at a time usually baseball and soccer, or hockey and soccer, or basketball and football.” “Everybody had two practices and two games a week - times four and that’s sixteen training events and they managed to get us to every game and every practice,” added the eldest Murchison. Their mother would keep track of all the kids using a calendar plastered on the refrigerator, with each child having their own color code. Despite all that, at the end of the day all six members of the household gathered around the dinner table and shared a meal together.

Old habits resurface for the youngest Murchison when he sees his big brother in the dining facility. “It takes every ounce of me not to launch a hushpuppy over at him in the chow hall when I see him sitting two tables away,” said Nicholas laughingly. “A captain throwing a hushpuppy at a Lieutenant Colonel out here probably wouldn’t go well.” Through all the years, their interactions with each other still hasn’t changed. They now find themselves deployed together in Afghanistan for the first time in their nearly 30 years of military experience combined. “It’s been interesting because I have been on the East Coast the whole time,” said Michael. “He’s been on the West Coast so we’ve been kind of on different deployment schedules,” said Michael, currently on his fourth combat deployment. “I go, he comes back, he goes, I come back.” The opportunity arose for the elder Murchison to fill his current position as the executive officer for

Retrograde and Redeployment in support of Reset and Reconstitution Operations Group, sending both brothers to Helmand Province side-by-side. “It’s been fun,” said Michael about being deployed together. “We’ve been to a couple of meetings where it takes folks a while to realize where related. It’s does frustrate me a little

bit when Mom sends care packages with stuff in it for him.” “It goes both ways though, I got the Tigers ball for you, and the cup,” added Nicholas as the two laughed. The way the brothers interact is a direct influence of their early life, growing up in such a tight household created a

tight bond. Both brothers are deployed for a year and return home at the beginning of next year. Until then, they better keep their head on a swivel, they never know which one of them will be waiting to pounce and deliver a gentle punch fueled by the love only two brothers could share.

Pfc. Jeffrey Tobash, an intelligence specialist with Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, poses for a photograph in the BLT command operations center aboard Camp Buehring, Kuwait, recently. Tobash, just three weeks passed his 19th birthday, is the youngest Marine in the 24th MEU, deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force.


Pfc. Jeffrey Tobash - 24th MEU’s youngest 2ND LT. JOSHUA LARSON

24th Marine Expeditionary Unit

In June 1993, “Jurassic Park” scored $50 million in its opening box-office weekend, Bill Clinton took office and Dr. Dre’s debut album joined the likes of Whitney Houston and Kenny G on the Billboard music chart’s Top Five. And it all happened before Pfc. Jeffrey Tobash, the youngest Marine in the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, was born. Tobash celebrated his 19th birthday just three weeks ago, a significant enough event for a young Marine on deployment. But July 25 marked an important date as well – the one-year anniversary of the day he stepped onto the yellow footprints at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. “Even there, I was young,” he said. Tobash, an intelligence specialist with Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th MEU, hails from Allentown, Pa., the third-most populous city in the state, and largely known for Billy Joel’s 1982 single of the same name. Tobash said he hears the reference often, and although his musical tastes are quite diverse, he rarely listens to music made before the 90s. Allentown is far away from Camp Buehring, Kuwait, a staging base for U.S. Armed Forces where Tobash currently lives and works, providing intelligence data for the 24th MEU’s ground combat element as they take part in sustainment training in the often harsh desert conditions. “My job is to reduce the commander’s uncertainty by evaluating weather and terrain,” he said. “Just doing anything to answer the commander’s questions about the battlefield, the terrain around the battlefield, to make operations and missions – and the commander’s decisions – easier.” The fact that Tobash is attached to an infantry-based BLT is somewhat ironic; when his parents signed a waiver for him to enlist in the Marine Corps’ delayed entry program at just 17, it

was with stipulations. “My mom said the only way she would sign the contract was if I chose something that wasn’t infantry related. I originally had an ‘03’ (infantry) contract, and made intelligence my third choice to make her happy,” he explained. High test scores helped put Tobash in the intelligence field, but he’s not arrogant about it. When asked if he has “smarts,” Tobash responds lightly: “I guess the Marine Corps thinks so.” He chose the Corps over other services mainly due to influences revolving around his older brothers’ friends, some of whom were Marines, and his brother Marc, now 24, who wanted to enlist but has a disqualifying heart murmur. “Marc was a big influence for me joining the Marine Corps because he went through the whole process, talking to the recruiters and stuff, and I was there for a lot of it. I was 13 at the time and seeing a Marine walk in the house in his Dress Blue uniform, sitting at the table and talking to him, it was pretty influential. It was someone to emulate,” said Tobash. But there’s more to it than just the uniform. “I figured I’d have 18 years of fun beforehand, and I could give five to my country,” he answered when asked about his reason for committing to the Marines before graduating high school. “College really wasn’t for me at the time. I just didn’t want to follow the path of everyone else, I wanted to look back and say I did more in four years than get a diploma.” Tobash said he wasn’t an ideal student in high school. He didn’t care much about academics and didn’t respect his teachers much, but the Marine Corps taught him to appreciate the wisdom that comes with experience. He also said respect isn’t just about those senior in rank to him, but also senior in billet. “It was a hard concept to grasp at first, because kids the same age as me or maybe a little bit older – these are the same people I would hang out with back in high school or back in the rear, but here they’re ap-

pointed above me and I have to listen to exactly what they say. It took a while to catch on, but eventually I learned, even with just a year experience, they know a lot more than I do – I have to listen to them, and I’ll be better off if I do.” Experience is definitely something a young Marine can gain while deployed with a Marine Expeditionary Unit, a crisis response and contingency force of approximately 2,300 Marines forward-deployed throughout the world. The North Carolina-based 24th MEU, currently deployed in support of the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, is halfway through a scheduled eight-month deployment, but Tobash missed some of its early missions as he was still attending initial training schools when the MEU departed in March. In fact, his first day in the Fleet Marine Force was when the MEU wrapped up Exercise Eager Lion 12, a large multi-national exercise that took place in May. And it was probably a different sort of first day than most Marines recall. “I met the 24th MEU on the shore in Jordan, but they were doing a ‘beer on the pier’ thing when I got there, and I was like ‘this can’t be what a deployment is like,’” Tobash said. “But then we left the shore and transitioned to going to work every day and not getting much sleep. I thought, ‘this seems more like what’s going to be going on.’” So far, the 24th MEU’s Kuwait sustainment training in and around Camp Buehring has made up most of Tobash’s first deployment, but in typical Marine Corps fashion, the 19-year-old yearns for something less comfortable. “I feel somewhat guilty because there are so many amenities here, some I don’t even have in the rear (referring to life back stateside),” he said. Even though he’s still technically a teenager, Tobash learned several things in his short Marine Corps career and speaks maturely about his first year as a Marine. He says the best piece of advice he can give is to “take the small wins that each day gives.”

But Not “Quick Cash.”

Afghan forces hold training exercise CPL. ED GALO

Regimental Combat Team 6

As Afghan forces prepare to take the lead in combat roles, Marines with Police Advisor Team, 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 6 and Afghan forces at Combat Outpost Castle held a command post exercise recently. The exercise tested how the district level operational coordination center handles scenarios that occur on the battlefield. The OCCD acts as a hub for managing local Afghan National Security Force operations. Captain William Van Eaton, PAT officer-in-charge, said the scenarios included how to handle finding an improvised explosive device, how to properly call for an emergency medical evacuation and calling for Marine support in case the enemy overwhelms the Afghan forces. “We are basically just taking a step back and letting them call everything in,” said Van Eaton. “They know they will be doing this, but the Marines are just a call away if they do need us for support, such as a MEDIVAC, (explosive ordnance disposal) or even a (quick response force) team to help them if they come under fire and need a hand.” Inside the OCCD, maps and photos of wanted insurgents hang on the plywood walls. The Marines, Afghan Uniformed Police and Afghan Border Police worked hard, using translators to communicate. Marines supervising the exercise called out scenarios to the Afghan forces and their Marine mentors. They worked around a wooden table scattered with paperwork and radio wires, routing information to and from units on the battlefield that also participated in the training. With the information, the OCCD determined what actions to take and executed them. “I really enjoy working with the Afghans. It’s a good change of pace,” said Cpl. Ryan Kirby, PAT team leader. Kirby says he enjoys seeing the improvements the Afghans made since his unit got to Afghanistan in April. “They’re doing a real good job,” he said. “I mostly deal with them on patrols. In the beginning, they would just rush and would try to get back as soon as possible. Now they want to talk to the locals and lead the patrols.” “We are learning a lot from our Marine advisors,” said Soldier Abdul Bari, radio operator, Afghan Unformed Police, Khanishing District. “They are doing good things for us. If we face any problems we send it up to our Marine advisors, and they help us as soon as possible. We like and appreciate their help.” Although Bari was recently assigned to his current job in the OCCD and has not had a lot of time working with the Marines, he is eager to learn more and more every day. “I joined because I want to work for my country and do my job for my country,” said Bari. “I wear my uniform because of my country, so I want to make my country and my area safe and peaceful.” DISTRICT FROM 1A “Because the better education they have, the better opportunities they will have, and it will be harder for them to fall under the influence of the Taliban.” The current school is a small mud compound that is falling apart. The new school is a metal and cement structure being built in the compound. Ortez said access to health care is another top priority that will help stabilize the area. The clinic under construction will be a basic health center most likely staffed with two doctors and a few midwives, he said. Future staffing will come through the country’s Ministry of Health. The Marines and sailors patrolling through the district were met with waves, smiles and handshakes. Ortez says he thinks it’s because the locals know the Civil Affairs Group is there to help. While on the patrol, Petty Officer 2nd Class Trevor King, builder, Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 11, periodically took measurements of the compacted dirt road under construction to be sure it is within standards. He oversees its construction, which is done by locals. He is also the inspector for the school and ensures it’s being built properly. Ortez says civil affair’s main focus right now is not to start new projects, but to finish up old ones and make sure they are done well. “The purpose for us coming out and doing all the quality control is to make sure all the tax dollars being invested are being well invested,” he said. According to Ortez, the projects are slated to be completed by the end of the year.

n a battle for supreme dominance, the Camp Lejeune Bulldogs stared down their opponents as they watched them climb off their bus aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Saturday.

Anglers anchor on reefs

This month, sky gazers will witness a rare celestial event. Every two to three years, we experience 13 full moons in a year, rather than the typical 12. This phenomenon in the moon cycle is something late-night anglers enjoy as they wait for the fish to bite beneath the stars this August, the month of the blue moon. Of course, anglers won’t be out fishing if the fish aren’t biting. Flounder are still biting. The flounder bite strengthens as anglers head inshore, with some of the best catches showing up inside the creeks and inlets. Artificial reefs and nearshore rock jetties continue to offer anglers a variety of fish to catch, just as they did at the beginning of the summer. With many fish in the three to four-pound range, the rock jetties

are still popular with anglers of every type. The Morehead City Train Trestle, the Ft. Macon Rock Jetty and the Cape Lookout Rock Jetty all saw periods of action last week, along with the port wall and the bridge inlets. Due to high lunar tides last week, I spent the majority of my time fishing in the sounds and creeks. I brought home several flounder I caught on live finger mullet, all of which were floated on a cork. This bait continues to be a favorite of flounder and other coastal fish. Not even typical Gulp! baits formed from plastic, metal or wood match the success of live bait. I only heard of one success story using artificial bait last week. After an unreliable Spanish mackerel season, the Spanish mackerel bite seems to be settling down. Fish are still swimming very deep, causing anglers to cast in waters of 30 to 40 feet. Three to six-pound fish were caught last week, all using live bait. Just like the flounder bite, the Spanish mackerel prefer live mullet or peanut pogys. Most Spanish mackerel were

caught near wrecks and artificial reefs like AR 313, AR 315 and AR 320. There were also mackerel on the east side of Lookout Shoals. Anglers reported sailfish swimming among the mackerel. While there are a lot of other mackerel hot spots, most are 20 miles or more out of the inlets and sounds. For anglers who don’t want to leave the inlets, the grouper bite is keeping fishermen plenty busy. Anglers are also drumming up plenty of drum and trout business in the Core Creek area, which was also a hot spot for redfish last week. I heard there were a lot of fish in the White Oak river and Queens Creek last week as well. The local fishing piers are in typical summer mode, just like they were the last several weeks. While anglers report catching a wide variety of fish, nobody caught a lot of one type of fish. Oceanana Pier reported Spanish mackerel and hogfish. Bogue pier saw large flounder, false albacore tuna, pinfish, spots, sea robins, trout and back drum, as well as tarpon, Spanish mackerel and bluefish. One angler reeled in a 17-pound false albacore last week, taking everybody on the pier by surprise due to its

size and proximity to the shoreline. Bogue pier also saw several large flounder caught last week, and one 19-inch king mackerel was caught as it fed on a passing school of small menhaden. The Seaview pier did not report any king mackerel but saw strong catches of black drum, sheepshead, sea mullet and trout. The Surf City pier reported Spanish mackerel, a few sea mullet and black drum, as well as a 19-inch flounder. At Jolly Roger’s fishing pier anglers caught some decent bottom-feeding fishing at night last week, and reported Spanish mackerel and tarpon. The Oceanana pier reconstruction continues, nearly a year after Hurricane Irene destroyed it. The end of the pier is pentagon-shaped with protruding pilings for a Tiki Bar. Crews replaced some of the planks and put in new lighting. They started putting together benches but have not yet built a cleaning table. Crews continue to make progress, though, and are still on track with repairs.

Inspiration springs from bold actions Even casual observers can easily see which athletes are full of grace and which athletes are in need of a little grace. rica, is making waves around the world with his story of hard work and dedication since the Olympic committee agreed to let him participate in the London 2012 games. Pistorious was a pioneer in the inclusion of amputees in the track and field portion of the Olympic Games, and his selection to Team South Africa sent people all over the world flocking to the internet to find out more about him. Pistorious never let what some would consider a “disability” handicap him. Repeatedly, he told reporters, supporters and critics the same thing: “You are not disabled by the disabilities you have. You are able by the abilities you have.” Instead of simply encouraging other similarly afflicted people, Pistorious was active in showing his support. A recent photo surfaced online of him beside a young girl, both of them racing with their artificial legs. To other amputees, Pistorious’ willingness to not accept the odds or let them define him, is irreplaceable. The impact he’s had on those who never experienced the loss of a limb, his commitment and love for his sport has done plenty to inspire. While Pistorious did not make it to the semifinals of his 400 meter

dash, the athletes he raced were so moved by him they held him in high esteem at the end of their race. Race winner Kirani Jones even held up Pistorious’ bib for the crowd in London as they cheered. Of course, Pistorious is not the only story of inspiration and grace at the Summer games. American gymnasts Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney have captured the hearts of fans everywhere with their American-sweetheart statuses. Gabby Douglas became a worldwide sensation when she won the all-around gold last week for her gymnastics performances, beating out her teammate and all-around favorite for the gold, Maroney. Douglas was a gracious and humble winner, and in an example of a true class act, Maroney was cheering for her teammate harder than almost anybody else in the crowd as Douglas accepted the immense honor. When Maroney misstepped on her last vault, losing her chances at a gold medal last weekend and landing on her bottom, her class shined brightly again. Disappointment was clear on her face as she accepted the silver medal, but she SEE OLYMPICS 5B

Olympic Watchdog 2012

It’s no secret I love the Olympics. I don’t know if it’s the ability to live vicariously through athletes like Kerri Walsh or McKayla Maroney, watching them accomplish things I don’t have a drive to do, the thrill of the sheer number of athletic events crammed into a 17day period, the fact they highlight peaceful, international cooperation, or something else all together. It’s probably a combination of all those things, plus many more. The Olympics bring out the true colors of athletes and fans. After the games end, there are always two groups of people who stand out in the minds of those of us who follow the games and medal ceremonies: Those who inspired us with their participation, and those who were we embarrassed by when we read their Tweets and heard how they behaved while representing their country. Even casual observers can easily see which athletes are full of grace and which athletes are in need of a little grace. It is the latter group that sticks in the minds of most people, but the first group who inspire us and earn our appreciation. Oscar Pistorious, the double amputee sprinter from South Af-

The Bulldogs ended their regular season with an 8-2 record. Their only losses were dealt by the Horizon. FOOTBALL FROM 1B MCB Camp Lejeune. “They were bigger, and they were trying to make a point at the beginning of the game.” The Bulldogs retaliated, catching up with the Horizon in the remaining first half of the game. The Marine Corps ethos was etched on the face of every man on the field as he donned his helmet and glared down his opponent. “Because they are Marines, our athletes bring a lot more to the table than

most other teams do,” said Bulldogs’ coach Len Kuhn. “They are disciplined and conditioned, and they know how to execute their technique.” The Bulldogs managed to hold the Horizon at bay, refusing to let size or intimidation factor into their decision to play or hold the ball, until the last few minutes of the game. Kuhn recounted the pivotal moment near the end of the game when the Bulldogs’ double-teamed tactic failed them, leading the Horizon to victory. “With a team with the talent and size of the Horizon, you know it’s going to be a tough game,” said Kuhn. “They came out of defense and got three on us, which gave them

what they needed to beat us again.” Despite their 25-28 loss Saturday, Kuhn said he couldn’t be happier with his team. With a season record of 8-2, their only losses came from the Fayetteville Horizon, who are ranked number one in the country in the Gridiron league. The cohesion he saw from his team this summer spoke volumes more than the numbers of

touchdowns scored. “The Marines on this team learned to come together this summer,” explained Kuhn. “We watched them learn to communicate and trust each other, and they really started to work as a unit and build camaraderie. “In the 40 years I’ve been coaching football, I have never coached a better team,” Kuhn continued. “To see the camaraderie between our officers and enlisted athletes was something really

special to watch. I’m incredibly proud of them.” While they still have the playoffs to compete in, the Bulldogs are already y to better thinkingg of ways themselves next year, hoping to take a bigger bite out of the Fayetteville Horizon and maintain their winning streak against the rest of the teams in their league. By the time their next season begins, the Bulldogs will be playing on the newly completed Liversedge Field and believe they will see more potential teammates attend tryouts and combines

after watching the success of the 2012 team. “The Bulldogs have good athletes and a coaching staff who are determined to lend their technical expertise to help the team grow,” explained Warner. “They keep the team in tune to what needs to get down, and it made them more successful this year than in previous years. Next year we’ll see what happens. I’d like to see them keep a cohesive team together.” For more information on the Camp Lejeune Bulldogs visit

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. OLYMPICS FROM 2B stood through interviews and relived her unfortunate mistake, never leaving reporters for the safe haven of her team and family. Maroney’s willingness to repeatedly talk through her last vault, during which she missed her landing and landed on her bottom, reminded those around her they must face adversity with the same willingness that fuels their excitement when they win. It would have been all too easy to retreat into the arms of her teammates and refuse to talk to reporters after her disappointing silver, but Maroney accepted her defeat graciously and discussed her disappointment openly, reminding everyone that even Olympic athletes are only human. They make mistakes. Maroney owns up to hers. Just like she demonstrated when Douglas surprised the crowd, Maroney’s attitude toward her competitors was nothing short of classy. There are others, too. Bulgarian male gymnast, Jordan Jovtchev will turn 40 next February. His attendance and participation in the 30th Olympic games marked his sixth Olympics. As a veteran in the Olympic games, Jovtchev earned the right to be looked at as a mentor for younger athletes with hopes of staying fit and at the top of their game long enough to compete with him. Polish table tennis player Natalia Partyka was born without her right hand and forearm, but she stepped alongside Pistorious to compete in both the Olympics and the Paralympic games this year, proving she shines in the face of adversity, regardless of what most people would consider a hindrance to her abilities. Granted, there are athletes we probably shouldn’t try to emulate. The bad girls and bad boys of the Olympic village are certainly present and attract media attention, but not in a manner conducive to helping their careers. The badminton players disqualified for trying to lose, sprinters who go missing before their events, and soccer stars who shed negative light on their sport and teammates certainly show a different side of the Olympics, but I choose to dwell on the positive. As we enjoy the second half of the 30th Olympic games, we are met with a challenge. Athletes are not the only one’s who can inspire others to act. The choices we make on a daily basis drive others to action. As service members, Marines are often placed in high-stress environments and expected to carry out their mission to completion. The best leaders don’t send the lowest on the food chain to the front lines while they sit back and watch. Good leaders don’t let their words contradict their actions. Just like Olympic athletes, Marines and other service members can be thrust into unexpected areas of limelight. When called to set an example, we can either lead with strong actions or sit back and be a drain on progress. Even those who don’t think they were made for leadership can hone and sharpen their skills one action at a time. Nobody is asking you to have a tragic story of the great loss that propelled you to action. There’s no excuse to sit around any more. Keep up with Lejeune Sports online.

Marines tackle new intramural season JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

Families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune are dusting off their grills and pulling out their favorite tailgate recipes. While it’s still plenty warm outside and thoughts of chili and cocoa are far from the minds of many, these families know the drill. With the start of intramural football season around the corner, they have to be ready to watch the boys of fall take the field. Intramural football is one of the largest athletic programs Marine Corps Community Services offers aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. It’s soaring popularity draws attention of families who don’t even know service members playing in the league. The intramural football program offers two styles of play. Flag football is open to all active-duty service members, retirees, authorized Department of Defense identification cardholders and military dependents 18 and older. Due to the stringent nature of the game, tackle football is only available for active-duty service members. “It’s a rough game,” said Antonio Warner, sports coordinator with MCCS. “The nature of the sport is not easy-going, and we can’t have just anybody out there getting hurt.” In addition to only offering tackle football to active-duty service

Intramural football teams take part in the 2011 football jamboree aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River last fall. The intramural football program offers tackle football to all active-duty male service members, and flag football to all active-duty service members, retirees, authorized Department of Defense identification cardholders and military dependents 18 and older. members, Warner only opens the tackle program to males. “It creates a problem when we have women who want to play tackle football,” admitted Warner. “Again, it’s all about the serious nature of the sport.” All athletes are placed into teams according to their unit. If an athlete does not have unit involvement in the program and cannot gather enough people to form a team, Warner works with them to find proper placement. He tries to ensure they are placed on a team within their major command and sends a letter of release to be signed, stating the service member has sup-

port to play. Coaches for each team are volunteer active-duty service members with a rank of staff non-commissioned officer or above. “We try to keep everybody together for cohesion, but there might be a few displaced Marines or sailors,” explained Warner. “I try to place them within their command and if it’s completely impossible, I open the floor to everybody else. “We also keep our coaching staff open to staff NCO’s and above, just to make things easier,” added Warner. “It’s better for everyone.” To keep unit cohesion as tight as possible, Warner said some units take

matters into their own hands. “We have units who like to purchase their own team jerseys and selfidentify for camaraderie,” said Warner. “I have no problem with it, but I don’t expect every unit to do it.” For those who don’t, Warner has everything they need. He provides equipment and jerseys, ensuring everybody on the team has a uniform look. “We have everything they need to participate, and all of our stuff is nearly new,” said Warner. “Why wouldn’t you use it? I’m all about uniformity. I don’t want to look out and see seven different helmets colors on the field. It

doesn’t look good.” The number of teams represented within the tackle and flag football programs will reflect the number of participants involved in the program. Flag football teams will have no more than 17 people per team, while the tackle teams will cap their rosters at 30, due to the number of available equipment for each team. “I usually have between 10 and 12 teams in the tackle program and a few less in the flag program,” said Warner. “Either way, everything will be scheduled and planned to make sure everyone gets accurate time to play before Thanksgiving.” Using Thanksgiving

as his cutoff date for the season, Warner hopes to keep his athletes on the field without having to reschedule make-up games. With the new Astroturf fields available to athletes, teams could “play during a monsoon and not get rained out.” “I don’t like to reschedule games if I don’t have to, because they all have families,” said Warner. “Lightning will cancel a game but that’s about it.” After holding his coaches meeting for the intramural program, Warner hopes to have enough time to put on a football jamboree to kick start the season. Due to construction on Liversedge Field, the 2011 jamboree was held aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River. This year, Warner plans to hold all games aboard MCB Camp Lejeune to keep families from having to drive as far. “It’s much easier to come across the street than to go all the way over to the air station,” said Warner. “Now we have our fields nearly done. I want to do everything here if we have enough time to plan it.” Intramural flag football registration is open until the day of the mandatory coaches meeting, which will take place Aug. 16. Intramural tackle football program registration ends today.

Outdoor enthusiasts paddle to adventure JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

There is something about being so close to the water and feeling like she is immersed in nature that has Lory Felipe hooked on kayaking. While she’s new to the sport, it left an unmistakable imprint on her life. When it comes to trying new things, Rebecca Hernandez is ready and willing. Armed with the knowledge that being outside and exploring nature in person is far superior to watching television all day, Henandez sets out in search of her next local adventure. In their quest, Felipe and Hernandez turned to the staff members of Marine Corps Community Services’ Outdoor Adventures program aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. With the help of recreation specialist Marybeth LeMaire, they found themselves armed with oars and life jackets, and sitting in kayaks on the intracoastal waterway, ready to undertake their Photo by Jessie Heath next adventure.

idshipmen in the Naval Reser ve Officer Training Corps wrapped up their week-long, educationpacked stay aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune July 26. The NROTC students took part in a dinner and a military occupational specialty mixer aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River and the opportunity to ask officers of various rates and occupations any lingering questions they had about jobs interesting them. Some midshipmen took advantage of the chance to ask officers all kinds of questions

about different jobs. Questions like ‘how is the job,’ ‘how does the job work day-to-day,’ ‘is it enjoyable,’ and ‘how long is the training’ were all commonly asked questions among the curious midshipmen. Others, who were not as curious, were just happy to have a relaxing meal and a break from Marine Week, which they pushed through since July 22. After a week of repelling, flying in helicopters, shooting and exercising, it was calming to enjoy good food and talk among friends. “It feels good to be able to sit back and enjoy a good meal after a long week of training,” said Midshipman Blake Wilson. “A lot of us had questions too, and it’s generous of the officers to take some time out of their evening to come talk to us.” On the contrast, the of-

Anyone driving on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune should think twice before they decide to throw that empty water bottle out the window. MCB Camp Lejeune has severe punishments for those who choose not to wait until they find a trash can. According to Base Order 5560.2N, a first offense for littering will result in a six month driving ban aboard the base. A second offense will land the offender an indefinite driving suspension aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. “Anyone who litters will also come see me,” said Sgt. Maj. Ernest Hoopii, sergeant major of Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune. “Littering hurts us all,” he continued. “It’s an eyesore. It’s a direct insult to our base’s service members and civilians who work to keep Camp Lejeune clean. In addition, littering is also a hazard to wildlife and everyday livelihood.” Littering is counter-productive, Hoopii said. It takes manpower and money to clean up the mess that could have been prevented by simply throwing trash in the trash can. “Cleaning up the mess pulls Marines out of work and is an unnecessary expense,” Hoopii said. He hopes the strict consequences for littering will cause Marines to think twice about throwing something out of their car, resulting in a cleaner, more professional-looking Camp Lejeune.

Firefighters preview robot sidekick for HAZMAT LANCE CPL. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Firefighters risk their lives to save others on a daily basis. They rush into collapsing buildings with smoldering hot temperatures, leaking chemicals and poisonous gases. In some cases, these conditions become too extreme and dangerous for a human to face alone. Firefighters from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear defense specialists with 2nd Marine Division were given the opportunity to test out the Talon robot during a demonstration at the fire department training area aboard MCB Camp Lejeune July 30 and 31. The Talon was fitted with CBRN and explosives addons to meet the practical functions in a hazardous material environment. The tray-mounted detection capabilities included devices such as a joint-chemical agent, radiation detector and a non-invasive temperature probe. “The (Talon) can go in and detect chemical threats or other hazards before anyone is exposed to it,” said Steven W. Roberson, a regional product manager with QinetiQ. “Ninety percent of the time the system can take care of the hazard by itself with an operator working outside of the hot-zone, to find and mitigate threats. Additionally, if you have to commit a team down range to this, the platform then becomes a safety observer and a risk management tool for commanders because they can observe their team while they’re operating.” Commanders can communicate with a response team through a public address system mounted on the robot; four cameras provide live feedback to the operator’s laptop controller, offering another set of eyes. Commanders can alert teams to hazards or threats they spot on the monitor while they operate. The Talon is also capable of picking items up, and turning valves or circuit breakers with its manipulator arm. The arm is capable of picking up a 65-pound load,

Coast Guard celebrates 222nd birthday Ethics stand down

reaches Marines through real world examples


Missions Training Center


n Friday the United States Coast Guard Crystal Coast Chiefs’ Mess hosted the Coast Guard Ball in honor of the branch’s 222nd birthday at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. This event honored the long and decorated history of the United States’ first and only armed afloat service until Congress created the Navy in 1798. During his dinner address, Master Chief Vince Patton III, USCG (Ret.), Ed.D, Eighth Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard said, “The Coast Guard is made up of ordinary people who do extraordinary things.” The Coast Guard’s history is extraordinary, indeed, and began in service of lighthouse maintenance for North American colonial settlements. The first lighthouse, the Boston Light, was built in 1716. In the years following more were built and the Federal Government took responsibility for maintaining them all. In 1789, the Revenue Act was proposed, and Alexander Hamilton supported the creation of the Lighthouse Service. The Revenue Act was signed by President George Washington Aug. 4, 1790. This approved the construction of 10 cutters at $1,000 each. Thus, the Revenue Cutter Service was created. When steam boats were created in the 1800s, this mode of transportation proved to be very dangerous. Many people were killed due to boiler accidents. This spurred Congress into action, and in 1838, the Steamboat Inspection Service was created to enforce the laws and regulations of the ships and their crew pertaining to crew licensing, vessel handling, hazardous cargo handling, port and harbor safety and protection of the marine environment. The Life-Saving Service began in 1848 as a volunteer organization. While Revenue Cutters such as the Gallatin were actively saving people out at sea, the Life-Saving Service patrolled the coastal shores. By 1871, lifesaving stations were established in Long Island, N.Y., and New Jersey, and were manned by paid crews. Lightships were ships with a light at the top of the main mast.

The Honor Guard rolls the Coast Guard birthday cake to the center of the room for the ceremonial cutting of the cake with a saber during the 222nd birthday celebration held at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday. They served similar purposes as lighthouses, but marked dangerous sea areas. In 1848, the Bureau of Navigation was established under the Department of Treasury. They maintained the lightships and later developed a more standard system of aids to navigation. Beginning in 1903, Congress decided it was time to cut costs and began merging the maritime agencies together. The Lighthouse Service was the first to merge with the Steamboat Inspection Service. Jan. 28, 1915, is a date most Coast Guard members look on with pride. The Revenue Cutter Serve and the Life-Saving Service merged and was renamed the United States Coast Guard. July 1, 1939, the Lighthouse Service, originally merged with the Steamboat Inspection Service, became part of the Coast Guard. Finally, the Bureau of Navigation and the Steamboat Inspection Service became part of the Coast Guard in 1942. These services were all reorganized and became the Coast Guard we know today. Since that time the Coast Guard has undergone even more changes. After serving 177 years under the Department of Treasury, the Coast Guard was transferred to the newly created De-

partment of Transportation in 1967. It became the main agency for maritime law enforcement and safety. After the events of Sept. 1, 2001, Congress decided to move the Coast Guard once more, and March 3, 2003, the Coast Guard became part of the Department of Homeland Security. During times of peace, DHS is the department the Coast Guard operates under, enforcing United States law at sea, protecting the marine environment, patrolling the coastline and ports, and saving lives. During times of war or by direction of the President, the Coast Guard falls under the Department of the Navy. In addition to the Ball’s highlighting the distinct history and traditions of the U.S. Coast Guard, a moment of silence was held to honor fallen Coast Guardsmen.

Marines use social media the same way everybody else does, said Sgt. Mark Fayloga, Headquarters Marine Corps head of Social Media. Through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Hi5, MySpace, Flickr, Reddit and many more, Marines connect and interact with people and ideas across a wide variety of avenues. Social media gives people numerous ways to share any detail of their lives. The military community has used those resources to blog about their wartime experiences. YouTube videos have landed Marines dates and brought smiles back home through groups’ renditions of popular songs matched to complicated choreography. Questions can be posted and answered by not only everyone in the Marines’ social network, but their friends’ social networks as well. They can find people willing to share their experience about a duty station, a job or a temporary additional billet such as recruiter or Drill Instructor. “(With social media) you can be the voice of the Marine Corps,” said Fayloga. “You can share your story.” Social media can serve as a soapbox to present informa-

tion and opinions, or it can provide an interactive experience to can help clarify misinformation. However, it’s very important to cite sources, said Capt. Joshua Smith, the Deputy Public Affairs Officer of Marine Corps Installation East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Without proper citation it’s just an opinion, he added. Social media can also make anyone a micro-journalist, said Smith. “Using social media allows you to share parts of your life more quickly and thoroughly than ever before,” continued Fayloga. “For most people outside of the military, and the Marine Corps especially, their idea of military service is shaped by what they’ve seen, heard or read in pop culture. They usually don’t get it. They might think our lives are ‘Full Metal Jacket’ all day long.” It can function as an exhibit chronicling the personal and military experience of any individual and as a means to ease the mind of a service member’s family. “With social media you can keep your family and friends informed about what your life as a Marine is like,” said Faygola. “You don't need to explain to them what you did today when you can show them with a video or photos. It gives SEE SOCIAL 3C

From a service member’s first day in recruit training a set of standards is thrust upon them. The core values of honor, courage, and commitment become more than just words, they become a guideline on how the rest of their lives will be spent. However, in the everyday world outside of the carefully structured environment of recruit training making the right choice is not as easy. With nobody looking over a service member’s shoulder, doing the right thing at the right time is not always automatic. In order to combat this, the Marine Corps is educating their Marines on ethics, and the importance of practicing making the right choices in any situation, even those that may seem trivial. “Since 1775 Marines have been facing ethical challenges both in garrison and in combat,” said Lt. Col. David Bardorf, the commanding officer of Marine Corps Installation East - Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Headquarters and Support Battalion, while facing Marines from his battalion, as well as Marines from Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group. “That holds through to today. Every single day we’re faced with a challenge.” Bardorf was in a crowded theater with Sgt. Major Michael Rowan, the sergeant major of HQSPTBn., to train their Marines’ minds to handle difficult situations, supporting the Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James Amos’ goals of reaching every single Marine in the Corps. “Our core values we have held true to are what make us who we are,” said Bardorf. “Our hard earned, solid reputation is forged through blood, sweat, tears and discipline. (Our values) are the standards we will uphold.” Bardorf and Rowan guided the Marines through the murder of Kitty Genovese. They discussed the Good Samaritan Experiment held by the Princeton Theological Seminary and the Stanford Prison Experiment giving insight into the bystander effect, the disparity between ones ideals and what they do when faced with a tough decision and how power corrupts. It was more than a discussion. The leaders were backed up by video of some of the experiments and interviews by people who took part in them. For instance, a man who was a part of the Milgram experiment, an experiment illustrating how people can obey those in power even when it hurts another, answered questions on the video and discussed what was going through his mind when he followed orders that led to, what he believed to be, the electrocution of another person. “John Wayne” from the Stanford Prison Experiment also spoke about his role as a guard where he oppressed other volunteers who were given the role of prisoners. There were also comedic examples of situations where group thinking can change the usual behavior of an individual, easing the mood of the heavy topic. While most of these held examples of civilians’ breach of ethics, they reflected on the situations Marines face. There is a negative side to cohesion service members have, said Bardorf. It can lead to blind conformity and group thinking. One of the videos discussed the My Lai Massacre, where a company of service members reflected a cross section of American youth executed 347 to 504 unarmed civilians. “I think people walked away with better insight into themselves,” said Lance Cpl. Ryan Cole, a legal services specialist with 2nd MLG. “It gave us an understanding that all of our choices are equal. We got a better sense of what the Corps should be.” Staff Sgt. Jeremy Burns, a court reporter with 2nd MLG, feels it is important to focus on the small issues and standards. “We have to use small unit leadership to explain how setting the standards at (the small unit) level is important to the Marine Corps,” said Burns. “We have to show how it degrades us as a force in readiness.” Bardorf stated materials and guidance would be provided so every shop in his battalion could discuss the topics breached in the presentation. When a Marine makes a small choice it sets the framework for the choices they make under more stringent circumstances. The video detailing the My Lai massacre left the deepest impression on the Marines present. It reflected how some soldiers in My Lai made the right choice that day but some of them let their ethics break to the point that, to this day, they cannot see how they are responsible for the massacre. “You cannot shirk responsibility,” said Bardorf. “You must train yourself to make the right decisions. Develop a sense of moral courage to make the right choice in the face of adversity.

Firefighters from MCB Camp Lejeune attended the seminar to test and view the Talon’s capabilities. ROBOT FROM 1C better,” said Topliff. “If we used the robot system to find out what we’re dealing with, it could stop a response in its tracks, or it could tell us exactly what we’re dealing with. It points us in the direction we need to go with our efforts to save lives. It is the most important part.” The firefighters practiced using the robotic side-kick, and many were impressed with the wide array of functions. One day the Talon may find a permanent home at a fire station aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, adding a life-saving robot to the firefighters’ toolbox.

Sodexo gives back to Camp Lejeune community LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps Community Services’ youth sports program received a large boost in funds Aug. 3 when Sodexo, Inc. donated a generous amount to the youth sports cause. MCCS and Sodexo entered into a commercial sponsorship agreement for the next three years worth $30,000, which will be used to fund different youth sports equipment and activities. “This is a great day and a great event,” said Brig. Gen.

Thomas A. Gorry, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “Those of us who have kids know how important youth sports can be for our young people. I have four kids, and they started out in MCCS youth sports. My son went on to play football in Europe, and his football days started in youth sports. My daughter also plays soccer in college, and she started in youth sports as well.” David Bennet, the senior vice president of Sodexo East Government Services, presented the check to John Sollis, assistant

taff for MCCS, MCI chief of staff East – MCB C Camp Lejeune. CB “Sodexo xo is committed to ngg to the health of our supporting youth,” sa said aid Bennet. We realize by ssupporting upporting the Marines, sailors lo ors and their families, we ar are re also supporting so many y young men and women who w serve.

Prior Pentagon Marine set to make strides at MCCSSS after receiving command LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marine Corps Combat Service Support Schools trains many Marines every year in personal administration, supply, financial management and logistics operations, and others. MCCSSS held a change of command ceremony July 30 aboard Camp Johnson, in which Lt. Col. Timothy B. Seamon relinquished command of the unit to Lt. Col. Paul F. Bertholf. Seamon assumed command of MCCSSS April 13. Bertholf was formerly assigned to the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in the J4 Directorate, where he worked as the readiness, exercises and plans officer, as well as the sealift and joint logistics over the shore officer. The ceremony was comprised mainly of Marines who were enrolled in schools aboard Camp Johnson, and both officers were very grateful the Marines sacrificed their own time to be a part of the ceremony. Seamon said he enjoyed being the unit’s commanding officer. He also thanked many individuals who, he said, made his job very easy. He admired

the hard work of his co-workers, both Marine and civilian, and appreciated all the help he had during his time at MCCSSS. “You can’t do anything without support,” he said. Seamon thanked his wife for helping him with many of the things he couldn’t do by himself, and for her undying love and support. Bertholf said he is excited to take the reins from Seamon and continue to do what MCCSSS does smoothly with little transition. He said he’s confident with the staff he’s inheriting from Seamon, and he foresees little to no problems moving forward. Bertholf talked about MCCSSS and how he is specifically looking forward to being in charge of the schools that produces Marines who contribute important roles and skills to the Marine Air Ground Task Force. “My motto is ‘earn the title every day,’” said Bertholf. He explained how he is going to bring the mentality with him to his new unit and will ensure he does his part in making sure the command will continue to do what it has been doing for years. Seamon will resume command as director of Train the Trainer School, where he was before he became the commanding officer of MCCSSS.

SOCIAL FROM 2C every individual the ability to document their life as it happens. We’ll still keep in touch with letters and phone calls, but social media lets you augment the connection in a way that’s more interactive and reaches more people.” Smith agreed, “It’s very powerful when a family can see how their Marine is doing while deployed.” With so many methods of communication, how can Marines maintain their social lifestyle while representing the Marine Corps in a favorable manner? The social media landscape has many opportunities to be used as a tool for good. However, snares in the social media world can land Marines into pitfalls which may spill outside of the Marine Corps into the world at large. “It’s no different than the way you present yourself in person,” said Fayloga. Many don’t realize just how public social media can be, added Fayloga. Pages can be seen by more than just friends and mutual friends. “You’re not anonymous,” explained Fayloga. “If you make a mistake, everyone can see it. Somebody can take a screenshot instantly and make a permanent record of it.” Faygola suggests treating every interaction online as something that can be shared with the Marine’s chain of command. There are guidelines set in place to instruct a Marine’s interactions with social media. “Being educated about how to use social media is paramount,” said Smith. Through knowledge of what is acceptable on social media, Marines can share their story and keep their audience of friends and family informed while keeping their fellow Marines safe.

(Top) The Young Marines of Swansboro pause for a group photo at National Night Out in Jacksonville Aug. 7. (Above) An Onslow County citizen paints the face of a National Night Out visitor during the annual event in Jacksonville Aug. 7. (Below) Members of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department enjoy interacting with the community at National Night Out in Jacksonville Aug. 7.

Imagine a world where crime does not exist. Children play outside with no concerns, darkness no longer equals danger, and security is a common feeling shared by everyone. Life thrives when evil is decimated. While the ideal setting seems extraordinary, the citizens and law enforcement agencies of Onslow County, alongside service members from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, took one step closer to stopping crime in its tracks during the 14th annual National Night Out in downtown Jacksonville Aug.7. “(Tonight) we let the criminals know we actually have people who want the crime and drugs to stop,” said Bob Bright, former fire chief for MCB Fire Department. Marines, law enforcement officers and rescue workers all take an oath to serve and protect their communities no matter the cost, but local agencies went above the call of duty to reach out and connect with the people they serve during the celebration. “It gives all of us in Onslow County a chance to thank our community for the work they do to help us prevent crime and keep our community safe,” remarked Chief Mike Yaniero, director of public safety for the City of Jacksonville. “We get to interact with them in a great environment.” Inclement weather didn’t deter the activities as thousands of citizens made their way downtown to meet, speak with and put faces with the names of those who keep them safe on a daily basis. “It’s an opportunity for our public safety folks to show you all what they do, and they do a lot,” stated Mayor Sammie Phillips, who is also a 31-year veteran of Jacksonville’s police department. “Some of you may have never had to call for their help, but someday you might have to. It’s good to know they’re there for you.” Vendors lined the streets of Riverwalk Crossing Park offering information, free products, food and entertainment to passersby. Children clung to balloons,

crossed their fingers for a chance to win a new bicycle in the raffle and sported the official NNO T-shirt designed by their peer, Tanya Mittal from New Bridge Middle School. Mittal’s design, which featured an anchor adorned by hats of the different law enforcement agencies in the area, beat out other entries in the annual contest. “Jacksonville’s symbol is an anchor,” Mittal explained. “This picture displays some of the people who keep (the community) safe. It’s what holds us together.” The military presence of MCB Camp Lejeune and surrounding installations could not be ignored as many Marines and sailors volunteered their assistance for the event. “National Night Out helps the public relations between the military and the community,” noted Cory Bracy, a wounded warrior who assists in training service dogs for a local business while he recovers. “It allows civilians to see the purpose of the military, and the military also gets to see everything the community does. It gives us a chance to intermingle.” The grand marshal for the evening, actor and producer Jeremy Davis, was impressed by the support Onslow County showed service members and the ease with which the unique populations blended. “This is one of those things that really brings everyone together, and it strengthens the community,” Davis said. “We have to bring awareness and let criminals know they will be stopped. I wanted to show my support for the military and the community. I think this is wonderful.” The rain continued to fall intermittently throughout the night, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the citizens. The community banded together with a singleminded focus to put an end to the rebellion, chaos and destruction attached to criminal activity by fostering relationships with the people who have the strategies. Their appreciation may never be heard, but National Night Out provided a platform for citizens to display their support for the uniformed heroes walking the streets and fighting on the frontlines, both at home and abroad. Crime doesn’t stand a chance against a community walking arm in arm with its heroes.

‘Spiderman’ amazes, spins web of adventure Now playing at Camp Lejeune “THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN” (PG-13) “The Amazing SpiderMan” is the fourth film in the most popular comic book series. However, this is a reboot of the franchise, coming five years after Sam Raimi’s trilogy. One of the world’s most beloved Marvel comics’ characters is back as a new chapter in the SpiderMan legacy is revealed. This film focuses on a prequel that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. It is set in the days of Peter Parker’s nerdy high school years where he is just developing his new power. As you remember, while in high school, Peter Parker deals with a radioactive spider bite and his first adversary. Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) stars as Peter Parker, the teen webslinger, who grapples with both human problems and amazing human crises. Peter is an outcast in high school, who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben, played by Martin Sheen (“The Departed”) and Aunt May, played by Sally Field (“Forrest Gump”). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone

(“The Help”). Together they struggle with love, commitment and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors, his father’s former partner, portrayed by Rhys Ifans (“The Five Year Engagement”). As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connor’s alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. Also starring is Denis Leary (TVs “Rescue Me”) as Gwen’s father, who is a police captain. Campbell Scott (TV’s “Royal Pains”) and Embeth Davidtz (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) can be seen as Peter Parker’s parents, Richard and Mary Parker. Director Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer”) brings a different approach to this popular character and tells a story not seen before. “The Amazing SpiderMan” soars again, this time in a 3-D adaptation. This Marvel hero’s roofdangling adventure action movie is a huge summer hit. Now playing in Jacksonville “STEP UP REVOLUTION” (PG-13) “Step Up Revolution” is a dance film and the

The cast of this film features several of the previous “So You Can Think You Can Dance” television show contestants dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Kathryn McCormick (“Fame”) stars as Emily, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, who has aspirations of becoming a professional dancer. She arrives in Miami and soon falls for a handsome young dancer. Ryan Guzman, a Mixed Martial Arts master, stars as Sean, a waiter and the leader of a dance crew in Miami, who leads his dancers in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs.

William P. Banning, a World War II veteran and avid supporter of the Marine Corps throughout his civilian life, passed away July 20.

Marine Corps loses beloved former commander LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

2nd Marine Division, and the Marine Corps as a whole, lost a storied member of their history July 20. William P. ‘Bill’ Banning, USMC retired, 89, born in Hackensack, N.J., and long-time resident of Doylestown, Pa., passed away after a brief hospitalization. Banning graduated from Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Mass., and

served in the Marine Corps as an infantry platoon commander with 2nd Marine Division, fighting in the famous Battle of Saipan. He avidly supported the Marine Corps throughout his life, even being decorated for it by then-Commandant Charles C. Krulak. As a former president of the 2nd Marine Division Association Mid-Atlantic Chapter, he wrote and edited the monthly newsletter “The Bugle.” As part of his many feats, Banning also wrote the

words for the official 2nd Marine Division march, “Follow Me.” Banning is survived by his two daughters: Barbara E. Banning Schoen and Karen L. Mininger. He had six step-children as well. He was married to the late Florence D. Banning. In addition, he had 19 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Will Rosser, a fellow Marine and long-time friend of Banning, had the honor of delivering the eulogy at his memorial service.

Cover Model Contest

“To Bill, it has never been about coins, trophies, lapel pins, plaques, monuments and memorials,” said Rosser. “All those symbols are just a means to the end, which is people.” “It has always been about the people and their noteworthy accomplishments, worthy of such a ceremony and

presentation. He thrived on highlighting people for their best days. He made history early on, and he spent his entire life giving back to those who continued the fight.” Rosser said Banning is credited with naming Julian C. Smith Dr. on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, after Lt. Gen. Julian Smith, founder of

the 2nd Marine Division Association. Banning undoubtedly held true to the old adage “Once a Marine, always a Marine,” and he was known to wave the flag “30 hours a day” by many. He was a true patriot and will undoubtedly be missed by the countless people who knew him.

Summer reading program concludes with magic PFC. JOSHUA W. GRANT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


nspiration is the goal of the summer reading program hosted by Marine Corps Community Services and the Harriotte B. Smith library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. This year’s theme of “Reading is so delicious,” did just that. Every summer, the reading program ends with a grand finale, and this year the popular magician, Jeff Jones, was invited to amaze and astound the young children who worked so hard with their reading. The program had children decorate and eat cupcakes, create delectable no-bake pizzas and take home their own chop sticks. With the theme of “Reading is so delicious,” the reading program ended this summer with a real bang by having the well-liked magic show. Performing magic shows for more than 20 years, Jones got his start through reading. Jones said the local library where he grew up only had a few books on magic, but he read them all. Jones explained his first reading program magic shows were at his local library, and he enjoys performing for libraries nationwide. Jones said he loves giving back. He wishes the children and families always get to leave with something. This year Jones made a wizard wand magically appear and gave one to every child.

“I hope they were thoroughly entertained,” said Jones. “They enjoyed themselves and took their minds off everything going on around the world.” Dozens of children ranging from age four to 11 combined with the teen-age group managed an astonishing combined total of 247,991 minutes of reading this summer. “Our purpose in being here is to meet the needs of the family members of Navy and Marine personnel,” said Jana Guitar, program supervisor at the base library. “It fills a lovely gap for things children can do during the summer and also helps them to continue reading.” Guitar said she recalls a parent telling her three children didn’t care much for reading. After signing the children up for the program, the mother said she wanted the children to have a minimum amount of reading minutes, which the reading program has. Guitar added the parent gave the children a 600 reading minute limit, but with all the programs and events that take place during the summer the children succeeded in doubling their limit. Guitar said the parents’ children are now hooked on reading. Children are not the only part of the summer readPhoto by Amy Binkley ing program.

Chaplain’s Corner Give your best every day LT. DOYL MCMURRY

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

“He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done. ‘Have you a new sheet for me, dear teacher? I’ve spoiled this one.’ I took his sheet, all soiled and blotted and gave him a new one all unspotted. And into his tired heart I cried, ‘Do better now, my child.’ I came to the throne with a trembling heart; the day was done. ‘Have you a new day for me, dear master? I’ve spoiled this one.’ He took my day, all soiled and blotted and gave me a new one all unspotted. And into my tired heart he cried, ‘Do better now, my child.’ An anonymous teacher penned this poem after learning a lesson from one of her students. The prophet Jeremiah wrote in Lamentations 3:22-23, “The Lord’s loving-kindnesses indeed never cease, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.” This mercifulness is not given to prompt us to accept mediocrity but to strive to give our very best, even after we fail. The apostle Paul indicated he desired to live his life in this way as well when he wrote in Philippians 3:12-14, “Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet ; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” We would all do well to learn this same lesson. Every day we face obstacles and failures. Some are our own and some belong to those whom we lead. In these days when one mistake can prevent a career from continuing, we must remember not one of us is perfect and all of us need to be challenged to give our very best in every area of our lives – at work and at home.

Aloha, summer. See you next year. All great vacations must come to an end, but the teens of the summer reading program refused to finish without one more night of festivities. With a finale fit for tropic beaches, the SRP participants welcomed each guest to their Hawaiian-themed luau at the Harriotte B. Smith Library aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Aug. 3. “This summer has been insane but quick,” said Fran Bing, youth services technician at the library. “We were expecting it to be slow

because of the mass exodus (of people moving, transferring and getting restationed).” Bing and the other coordinators had their hands full all season with no less than han 15 ha 1 150 50 ch children hil ildr ldr dren n at each SRP event, ven ent, t, aand nd nd the teens’ numbers mb beerrss smashed previous ous us years’ records aass well. “They seemed to really enjoy it, and that’s what it’s all about – kids having fun at the library,” Bing ingg stated.

Werewolves unite You’re not in control

with Amy Binkley

Assistant managing editor

I’m an 80’s kid. While I missed the first three years of the decade, and subsequently the first royal wedding, I was brought into the world just in time for Cabbage Patch kids, the original “Footloose,� and Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield� – a truth I live by to this day. I relish in the quirky era with its blinding neon accessories, big hair and break dancing, and I’m starting to see a bit of repeated history. Dear teenagers, the brightly colored pants in the stores aren’t new, they’re retro. Your parents looked like highlighters first. Despite the historical happenings, legendary music and political upheavals which took place in the ten-year span, what continuously affects my vocabulary, humor and imagination are the movies. What girl hasn’t wanted to celebrate her birthday with Jake Ryan? What guy hasn’t felt the need for speed? And who doesn’t relate to at least one member of the Breakfast Club? One film, which became a cult classic but never quite reached the popularity of its campy counterparts, I clearly remember is Michael J. Fox’s “Teen Wolf.� Fox came back from the future to participate in this cinematic gem as an awkward teenager dealing with not only the onslaught of puberty but also a hairy family heritage. The werewolf gene is not the inheritance I’d want to collect. The character goes

rashly to the news of a prolonged deployment, whether your own or that of a loved one? Have you ever lost your temper when your kids break yet another item in the house? Have you ever thrown a grown-up temper tantrum when a situation didn’t go the way you wanted it to? Welcome to the world of werewolves. For the most part, werewolves keep it together. They push down the temptations to attack, snip at or destroy obstacles in their way. However, no one can control the monthly visit of the full moon or the craziness that tends to accompany it. The labor and delivery nurses at the hospital could tell you stories you wouldn’t believe. Just like werewolves, life regularly hands us unexpected events of which we have no control. We can’t command our grass to stop growing because we don’t want to mow it when we get home. We don’t have the authority to determine who lives and who dies of disease. Attempting to announce superiority over the commandant and declare T-shirts and jeans as standard uniforms would end disastrously for you. No, you are not the master of the universe. You are not a time lord handling the wibbly, wobbly stuff of future events. You are human, and in that regard, you have control over only one thing – yourself. It takes practice to bridle emotions, force back the natural inclination to confront and compose yourself long enough to realize there’s nothing you can do but move forward. Take comfort in the fact you are not alone. This wolf pack is too numerous to count.

at our library, they’ll be more likely to utilize what tools we offer.â€? The final party continued through the night with tasty snacks, games, a movie and punch, complete with little umbrellas for decoration. Bing sat, satisfied with her last summer event and commented on how she hopes her young protĂŠgĂŠs never lose their passion for the library, reading or the camaraderie built through both. “We are the keepers of knowledge,â€? she said. “We’re trying to grow (the library), expand it and make it the first place people go to instead of the third or fourth. But (the kids) don’t have to pick up a book, they just need to feel welcomed.â€? Bing pointed out how the institution is a go-to place for new arrivals. “So many families say they visit here just to find out what activities are going on aboard base,â€? she acknowledged. As the sun prepared to set on another summer reading program, Mattmann brought the focus to the foundation of every event. “(Reading) takes you into new places,â€? she mused. “You never know where you’re going to go.â€?

(Reading) takes you into new places. You never know where you’re going to go. LUAU FROM 7D also dominated her competition. “This was my first time (in the summer reading program),� explained Aryana Mattmann, the SRP reading champion. “I like reading so my mom signed me up.� Mattmann soared through the summer on the wings of her imagination, logging more than 9,000 minutes spent reading. To put the number in perspective, it breaks down to 150 hours or more than 6 entire days. “It really wasn’t much of a challenge,� Mattmann noted. “I love the Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Chronicles of Narnia series.� She marked the Hunger Gamesthemed event as her favorite, from which she also walked away the victor. Bing noted not every member of the teen program devoted as much time to stories as they did service. “Some of them are big readers but some are just service-oriented,� she said. “They love helping people and have no problem lending a helping hand.� She recognized the uniqueness of her teen participants and credited their continued hard work to being able to hand out significant prizes to the top winners. “At this age group, library usage drops off dramatically,� Bing remarked. “By giving (teens) a positive experience


Oh my word

through a transformation, at first living as a melancholy nobody, then embracing the fame of acceptable uniqueness and finally realizing who he was before his change wasn’t so bad after all, completed with the music of the you-can’t-buy-itanywhere song, “Shooting for the Moon.� I always wondered why w the werewolf phen nomenon didn’t gain the same esteem as other mythical creatures, like vampires or zombies, even though their tales of woe date back to the Greeks. Like the others, they are shrouded in mystery, history and awe. The difference lies in how we relate to them. Vampires ooze characteristics like sexiness, charm and magnetism members of the opposite gender are unlikely to resist. Nobody wants to be a zombie, but their unwavering determination and unprejudiced inclusion to their group are enviable. Werewolves, however, hit a little too close to home. Out of every supernatural monster we’ve looked at throughout the past few weeks, they are the most similar to us. I know it’s hard to believe. You’d probably rather sparkle in the sun or visit other planets, but the painstaking truth is, metaphorically speaking, we are werewolves. Trust me. I was as shocked as you are by the realization, but it all boils down to one word – control. It’s human nature to want to take control of our own lives. Make our decisions, and live with the consequences. No matter what happens, as long as we know what’s going on, we’re at ease if we think we have hold of the reins. The reason we disconnect from the shapeshifting beast is because it is a stunning portrayal of how uncontrollable events can cause us all to transform into unrecognizable, hideous forms of ourselves.
