U.S. and French Marines from corresponding Light Armored Reconnaissance elements worked together, recently, in Djibouti, taking part in route and area reconnaissance, and raid training near the coastline of the Gulf of Toujours. The Marines are part of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which has a small contingent ashore in Djibouti conducting unilateral, bilateral and joint training exercises.
The French Marines are from the French 5th Marine Regiment. “The overall intent of the training was to create a training opportunity to maximize the capabilities and interaction of both platoons. Our hope was to create a scenario that utilized the strengths of each platoon in a mutually supporting role, and it worked amazingly well,” said 1st Lt. Benjamin Gallo, LAR platoon commander, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th MEU.
The training began when the Marines joined together for vehicle familiarization, cross-training in tactics, techniques and procedures, and an orders brief where both units discussed the details of the upcoming training mission. Cpl. Ryan Frick, an infantry rifleman and scout section leader with the 24th MEU’s LAR platoon, said there are not many specific differences between how the Americans and French do business. “Their vehicles are set up differently. We have seven (Marines) in
ours and they have four,” he said. Each unit’s similar tactics allowed for a smooth culminating event – a training raid. “The scouts were the assault and they (the French) were the security for us,” said Frick as he described the raid, in which other U.S. Marines role-played as an enemy force. As the force came in, they took initial fire from a far building, so the 24th MEU Marines took action and engaged the building while moving forward as the French, in constant support, moved forward with them.

This part of Virginia, south of Richmond and no small distance from any city, is still hot, even in this September morning. Dust, gravel and old roads connect old buildings. The empty areas of this base give the impression of a ghost town, save one area, as tents expand like mushrooms and razor wire springs from the ground, twirling across the grass still wilting from summer’s blast-furnace heat. The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit has arrived at Virginia Army National Guard Training Center. “The deployment of the 26th MEU to Fort Pickett is the first major training event of our six-month pre-deployment training program, allowing us to focus on individual and smallunit level skills in shooting, moving and communicating,” said Col. Matthew G. St. Clair, 26th MEU commanding officer. This is the first training evolution since the Marine AirGround Task Force composited Sept. 7, making them 2,200 Marines and sailors strong. Battalion Landing Team 3rd Bn., 2nd Marines, the ground combat element, Combat Logistics Battalion 26, the combat logistics element, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 Reinforced, the air combat element, and the command element will all get to know each other during the training. “This is the first time the ground combat element and logistics combat element worked together since we composited. We’re demonstrating the ability of the MEU to work together – to exercise our logistics,” said Master Sgt. John Collins, 26th MEU headquarters commandant. “The MEU off-site is an opportunity for the MEU to move and set up their communications, command and control, and conduct missions and training in a different location,” said Lt. Col. Brynn Schreiner, 26th MEU executive officer. “This gives us a chance to move with our reinforcements, give them the same benefits, and exercise the command and control.” The unit phased its arrival at Fort Pickett to maximize efficiency and minimize wasted time, sending convoys with gear to get in place before an advance party arrived to put up all the tents and get the communications and power in place. The main body of the MEU arrived shortly after, falling in on the structures raised. “We’re out here to see how we can establish a forward command operations center … away from what we’re used to,” said Cpl. Dominique Artagos, integrated maintenance management specialist with 26th MEU. “We’re pitching tents, setting up communications, setting up Internet, SEE PICKETT 7A

Marines face danger and criticism daily both on and off the battlefield. Some may think being a Marine means to seek out these dangers in all of its shapes and forms. In truth, being a Marine simply means to have courage. Courage defined by the Marine Corps is having the ability to recognize our fear of the dangers and criticisms that lie before us and to proceed in the face of such fear with calmness and firmness. This is what it means to be courageous; this is what it means to be a Marine. “You see it in the civilian world as well,” said 1st Sgt. Jose GuerreiroPereira, the company first sergeant of the Ground Combat Element for Security Cooperation Task Force, Africa Partnership Station 2012. “We all saw or heard about stories of civilians taking action in the face of danger, whether it was helping out law enforcement officers, running into a burning building, or maybe saving a family from an overturned car that's on fire. I think those people possess the same traits we do.” Guerreiro-Pereira spent over 16 years rising through the ranks of the United States Marine Corps, gaining a greater understanding of courage and the traits that define a leader. “As a leader I'm faced with many decisions I have to make about my Marines on a daily basis,” said Guerreiro. “Some are easy calls to make, some are not. The decisions I make and the recommendations I forward to my commanding officer have to be for the good of the service and in keeping with preserving good order and discipline. As for my Marines, it’s important for them to display courage, because I need them to be ready both physically and
mentally at all times.” “It’s not difficult to ask of them,” Guerreiro continued. “It’s instilled in us, and it’s part of our bloodline. It’s in the mindset of the type of people who join the military. I think it's a natural thing among us.” Keeping his Marines constantly physically and mentally prepared proved invaluable recently, when Guerreiro’s Marines found themselves training alongside Marines from France’s 3rd Marine Regiment at the stonewalled fortress, Fort de Penthievre in Brittany, France. “We’re Marines, but we’re not immortal. We're subject to our own fears,” said Guerreiro. “For example, some Marines are scared of heights and on that day they scaled the wall of a castle, and they rappelled down the wall of a castle. The commando course culminated with in hand-to-hand combat with the French Marines, which took courage. You're sitting there, putting the gloves on, the headgear. You’re getting in the ring with a French Marine and you're going toe to toe. I wasn’t sure if the Marines understood going into France that day their manhood would be tested, but it certainly was. It was amazing to watch and be a part of.” Guerreiro attributes his concept of courage with being influenced by the book “On Combat” written by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman a retired Army officer. Guerreiro summarizes his take on the book by explaining, should there be a generation without teachers, lawyers or even doctors, our society and country would be fine and continue to function as it does today, but if there was ever a generation without men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country, then SEE LEADERSHIP 7A
A few minutes later, the Marines took fire from the left flank, which played perfectly into the unit’s setup, and they were able to immediately return fire on the aggressors, Frick explained. Gallo discussed how the French were able to take the lead in certain situations when their superior range and firepower were beneficial, and each force was able to easily switch roles from being the unit providing support to the one taking the lead.

Resource Roundup By Mark Munger
National Suicide Prevention Month Education and training are at the heart of knowing how to recognize potential symptoms of suicide. While it is an incredibly hard topic to talk about, it is one that is crucial for someone in need of help. Robin Schoolfield, program manager for Resilience Education, introduces a new class for suicide prevention. RR – The new suicide prevention class has an interesting acronym – R.A.C.E. Can you tell us what that stands for? RS – A suicidal person may not ask for help, but it doesn’t mean help isn’t wanted. Most people who commit suicide don’t want to die; they just want to stop hurting. Suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously. If someone thinks a friend or family member is considering suicide, they might be afraid to bring up the subject. But talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life. The R.A.C.E. is also used in the required “Never Leave a Marine Behind” annual training Marines receive. It is important everyone in the community understands and uses the same language. Recognize the signs of distress. Note changes in personality, emotions or behavior. Note withdrawal from relationships. Note changes in eating or sleeping patterns. Ask about the sign of distress and suicide if appropriate. Calmly question the person about the distress you observed. Ask directly, “Are you thinking about killing or harming yourself?” Care about the Marine or family member, and show it. Actively listen, do not judge. Keep everyone feeling safe
and secure. Utilize local resources for support. Escort the person to safety. Encourage the individual to get help as quickly as possible. Offer safe options. Stay with the individual until help is secured. RR – Can you tell us about some of the ways the class will help to ask the direct question, “Are you thinking of hurting or killing yourself?” RS – Talking about the feelings surrounding suicide promotes understanding and can greatly reduce the immediate distress of a suicidal person. It is OK to ask someone if they are considering suicide if an observer suspects they are not coping. If they are feeling suicidal, it can come as a great relief to learn someone else has some insight into how they feel. During the class the participants role play and practice asking the difficult question. This type of skill training will make it easier for participants to act effectively when someone is in distress. Overcoming the societal taboos of talking about suicide takes practice. The first time you ask the question it is difficult. Practice allows us to understand how the question can bring relief to someone struggling. RR – What type of tips are provided for identifying distress signs? RS – Most suicidal individuals give warning signs or signals of their intentions. The best way to prevent suicide is to recognize these warning signs, and if you spot them, know how to respond. If someone believes a friend or family member is suicidal, they can play a role in suicide prevention by pointing out alternatives, showing they care, and getting a doctor or psychologist involved.
In the class, the obvious and subtle signs of distress are discussed, but the focus of the class is the bystander-first responder. Compare it to a first aid class. No one needs to understand why people choke or what physiologically happens within the throat to cause choking. When someone is choking there is high-pitch wheezing, their skin turns blue, and they more than likely put their hands on their throat. Once someone recognizes the signs, they are taught to ask the question, “Are you choking, can I help you?” Then they can begin to care with the thrust maneuver until the paramedics arrive. We hope this training will empower people within our community to act when someone is distressed. RR – Are there any other recent changes to the Resilience Education classes? RS – Our stress and anger workshops are now combined into one two-day class. This two-day, combined workshop will cover anger management, stress management, emotional intelligence and communication skills, and will conclude with a two-hour skills session on stress reduction techniques by a certified instructor through Semper Fit. Participants will learn to identify their stressors, stress symptoms, anger expression style, communication style, and positive techniques for managing anger, conflict and stress. Being present and accountable with family, friends and co-workers regarding symptoms of suicide is an important part of everyday life. Schoolfield and her team facilitates this training and is a catalyst for awareness. Always remember here at MCCS we are proud to serve those who serve.

Sharing the road: bicycles, pedestrians Activities such as bicycling and running naturally increase as the weather becomes nicer. There are runners both individual and in formations continually throughout the year, but bicyclists are now seen more frequently on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune roads. Regardless of why these Marines, sailors, and civilians choose to participate in these activities, motorists must share the road. Recently and unfortunately, there was a bicyclist killed on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Contributing factors such as the lack of reflective equipment on the bicycle, no reflective gear worn by the bicyclist and wearing headphones were the fatal combination to this mishap. Be careful and obey the rules of the road listed below: Bicyclists - Bicycle riders will observe the same rules and regulations required of motorists in BO P5560.2N and will ride on the right edge of the roadway with the flow of traffic in single file only. - Bicycles may be operated during the hours of darkness if equipped with headlights, rear red reflectors and red lights. Reflective vests are required from evening to morning colors and during periods of reduced visibility. - All bicycle riders riding aboard the Base, to include family members in Base housing, are required to wear a bicycle helmet that meets the Snell
Memorial Foundation or the American Standards Institute guidelines. - Riding bicycles is prohibited along the portion of Holcomb Boulevard between Sneads Ferry Road and Brewster Boulevard. Use of the bike path along the tree line is authorized. - Vehicles should only pass bicycles when practical and when safe to do so. It is important to remember that a bicycle is not a toy, it’s a vehicle. Pedestrians - Walk or run on the left side of roadway facing traffic, stay at least six feet from the edge of the roadway. - Do not impede the flow of traffic. - Use sidewalks or running paths when available. - Must wear reflective gear from evening to morning colors and during reduced visibility. - Cross streets at marked crosswalks, it is safer. Pedestrians always have the right of way when crossing a road, but ensure the right is given before crossing. Troop PT and Formations - Individuals, pedestrians or stragglers from formations engaged in physical training will avoid impeding the normal flow of traffic. They must remain farther than six feet from any roadway. They will wear reflective gear from evening to morning colors and during periods of reduced visibility. In addition, light colored clothing and other reflective gear such as tape, shoe
reflectors and reflective belts is strongly encouraged. At least 30 square inches of reflective surface, 15suqare inches in front and 15 square inches in rear, must be visible. - Marching troops and organized physical fitness runs must avoid impeding traffic on Holcomb Boulevard between the Main Gate and Ash Street during rush hour traffic periods between 5 and 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and 3:30 and 5:30 Monday through Friday. - Marching troops and organized physical fitness runs will not impede traffic on Sneads Ferry Road between Holcomb Boulevard and Louis Road during the same rush hour traffic periods noted above. Headphones/Earphones - Use of portable headphones, earphones or listening devices on base roads or streets is prohibited. They may be used on the dedicated multi use paths, however remove them when approaching danger areas such as intersections, roads or any other area involving vehicular traffic. Respecting the rights of others by knowing and following the above regulations will ensure adequate traffic flow without jeopardizing pedestrian safety. Particular emphasis must be placed on the protection of our children riding their bicycles to and from school, and playing in military housing areas.

PATROL BASE DETROIT, AFGHANISTAN
Marines become brothers in arms with ANA CPL. TIMOTHY LENZO
Regional Command Southwest
“On the edge of Trek Nawa, an area between the Nawa and Marjah districts, stands a small patrol base where Marines and Afghan National Army soldiers come together and work side by side. United by a common enemy, the Marines with 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, Regimental Combat Team 6, and Afghan National Army soldiers with 1st Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps, strengthened an already solid friendship. “Our principle role is to guide the Afghan National Army through the transition period,” said Capt. Glen Taylor, company commander with RCT-6. “We’ll get them fully prepared logistically and tactically to conduct combat operations against the enemy.” Trek Nawa is a known insurgent stronghold, and from the first patrols, the Marines took enemy small-arms fire. “We were in the lead during Ramadan while it was difficult for (the ANA) to conduct operations,” Taylor added. During Ramadan, the Afghan soldiers fasted from sunrise to sunset, making it dangerous when on patrol in temperatures reaching more than 130 degrees Fahrenheit. “The ANA soldiers are tough,” said 1st Lt. Stephen Huff, a platoon commander with RCT-6. “They weren’t eating or drinking through the day, but every morning they step out (on patrol) with us with no water or food. Some days we’d fight until the afternoon.” Marines took the lead in the partnered patrols during the Islamic holy month, helping to take some pressure off their Afghan counterparts. They engaged the enemy in numerous firefights while patrolling, and on one occasion, spent three consecutive days in Trek Nawa fighting the insurgency. When Ramadan ended, the Marines returned to a more supportive role with the ANA. “The main ways we have an impact is through training the Afghan Army, and advising them on their patrols and operations,” Taylor said. Every couple days, the Marines teach a variety of classes to the ANA, including mortar systems, marksmanship, night movements and land navigation. The classes are designed to help the Afghans contain and disrupt the insurgents’ operations, and to develop more

To the Afghans, it was a kind gesture and showed a level of respect for their Marine counterparts. The Marines welcomed the gesture, more than happy to enjoy a fresh meal with their brothers in arms. The Marines and ANA soldiers realize they have the same goal, and it united them on this small patrol base. “We have the same target, and we have the same enemy,” said Hussain. “Living on one base made us like one family.”

They work hard with us and give us lots of training.” The Marines stood side by side the Afghans in combat, which created an instant bond. “We were in firefights from day one,” Huff said. “The cultural barrier quickly melted away, and we found each other sitting down and talking soldier to Marine.” Now the Marines regularly play sports on their downtime with the Afghans. The ANA have a volleyball court set up, and some evenings the shouts and cheers from both sides can be heard throughout the patrol base. Recently, when the Marines returned

Marines with Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, rappel down a training tower during assault climber training in Djibouti, recently. The training is a part of a Training Force, or T-Force, package focused on primitive infantry skills. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a theater reserve and crisis response force throughout the U.S. Central Command in the Navy’s 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
Sharpening primitive infantry skills 2ND LT. JOSHUA LARSON 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit
“Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit finished the first week of a Training Force package in Djibouti recently, the latest endeavor of the 24th MEU as it begins the sixth month of its current deployment. The ‘T-Force’ package is a scheduled three-week event, largely focused on mountain-based infantry skills that allow for tactical superiority in rugged environments. A platoon of Marines from Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, based from the USS Iwo Jima, are currently taking part in the training. The first few days were
mostly academic and took place in Camp Lemonnier, a relatively comfortable joint expeditionary base where Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa is headquartered. Here, the Marines received classroom instruction based around mission essential communication skills, indirect fire coordination, targeting methods, and survival skills such as building fires and finding water. Once this portion was complete, the Marines took part in an acclimatization test, which consisted of a three-mile run in boots while carrying a pack weighing approximately 25 pounds. This portion was to test the Marines’ physical state of readiness in preparation for the intense elements of the mountains.
GUNG HO! “Gung Ho!—The Corps’ Most Progressive Tradition” is a must read for all Marines of every MOS. Through 111 illustrations, it closely follows the famed Raiders and their 4th Regiment successors through the heaviest ﬁghting of WWII and Vietnam. Then, it ﬁnally reveals to today’s infantrymen and special operators how to conduct Maneuver Warfare at the squad level. Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, former head of CENTCOM, writes the Foreword.

The Marines then moved from Camp Lemonnier to an Intermediate Staging Base, located more than an hour away from what would be considered “civilization.” Here, they took part in a day of basic assault climber skills “everything from knot-tying and fixed-lane rope movement to rappelling down a 150-foot cliff-face. “Basic military mountaineering skills are important because they can be employed any place we go,” said Master Sgt. Chris Brueggeman, the senior mountain leader for the BLT and staff noncommissioned officer in charge of the T-Force package. “Even when they’re not in a mountainous environment, Marines can use the survival skills they learned here.” After a full day mostly spent on the cliff-faces, where several Marines placed their watches on the rocks and measured temperatures of 135 degrees, the infantrymen bedded down for the night near the water-line of the Gulf of Toujours. Still, they found themselves contending with the antagonisms of heat and humidity combined with the relentless itching and scratching of insects. “I’ve been learning a lot out here about everything,” said Lance Cpl. Liam McConnell and one of the Marines taking part in the T-Force. “Even how rugged the terrain is presents a challenge, especially compared to someone used to walking around North or South Carolina.” But comfort, of course,

isn’t a prerequisite for life as an infantryman. “It’s part of what makes us (Marines) so good,” said McConnell. The following morning, the Marines rose before the sun and moved to an adjacent French military outpost to navigate a water obstacle course. The course was a test of the Marines’ stamina; it combined the physical strength of swimming and navigation of obstacles with the mental challenge of working as a team in order to quickly and efficiently maneuver through the course. The Marines were given time to consolidate and refit, but then were back in the mountains conducting patrolling operations under a persistent African sun. “The first week of the T-Force package already paid dividends. It provided future small-unit leaders the opportunity to learn and practice primitive skills in an austere environment,” said Capt. Juan Ramos, officer in charge of the T-Force package. “These are the skills required by the infantryman that do not rely on technology. They are important because a dependence on technology decreases the self-reliance of the infantryman.” The second week of the T-Force package began when the platoon returned to the field for a “force-on-force” exercise, in which the platoon divided into separate elements and played out a loosely-scripted scenario in a simulated battlefield within the Djiboutian mountain terrain.

Marines with Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group undergo realistic combat training for first responders during Enhanced Mojave Viper on Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., Sept. 6. The Marines participate in EMV in order to build unit cohesion and tactical proficiency in preparation for deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom MAGTF.

Realistic improvised explosive device training saves lives 1ST LT. NICOLE YUHAS 2nd Marine Logistics Group
mounted convoy is t r ave l i n g down the road when unexpectedly – “BOOM” – the lead vehicle sets off an improvised explosive device. Once the noise from the explosion subsides, all that is heard are groans from the passengers, screaming in agony and yelling for help. Straight ahead, a cloud of smoke billows out furiously from under the now mangled Humvee. Glancing right, one of the passengers is lying on the ground, motionless, but still crying out in pain. Then to the left, the vehicle driver stumbles out from the cloud of smoke, covered in blood from head to toe. This is not a scene from a movie.
This was the scenario simulated for the Marines and sailors of Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group during their first-responder training at Enhanced Mojave Viper Sept. 6. The purpose of this training evolution is to provide both a realistic environment and experience in order to ensure Marines and sailors are physically, mentally and emotionally prepared to react and provide medical aid in the event of an IED attack during a convoy. “This is some of the most realistic training we can provide these men and women before they leave for deployment and possibly encounter the real deal,” explained Scott Wheeler, a counter IED subject matter expert. The most prominent threat for a convoy in Afghanistan is an IED. The troops’ primary objective was to proficiently act as first responders – to safely
approach the downed vehicle and utilize their combat lifesaver training to assess, relocate and treat the casualties with the ultimate outcome of saving lives. In order to maintain the unknown factor and the realistic training value, each group of 15 to 20 Marines and sailors would go through the scenario only once, unaware beforehand of the number of casualties or the types of injuries they were going to treat. Many individuals commented about how real it all seemed causing them to momentarily freeze-up when they reached the downed vehicle and saw the injured passengers with fake blood everywhere. “I didn’t expect the effects to be so awesome,” said Lance Cpl. Jessica Soberon, a Marine with Transportation Support Company. “It looked too real,” continued Soberon, referring to the casualties and their
simulated injuries. “My mind initially went blank (when I saw them).” The wounded passengers were trained actors who were dressed-up by professional make-up artists to replicate the various injuries an individual could sustain if their vehicle were hit by an IED. Injuries ranged in severity, to include burns, imbedded shrapnel, lacerations, head trauma, sucking chest wounds and even limb amputations. “This is probably the most valuable training, medical wise, these Marines are going to go through,” explained Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Chrobot, a hospital corpsman and instructor who evaluated the groups as they went through the drill. “There are not many other places they can get the training that is going to be as effective. “This is the only time at Mojave Viper these units
are going to be able to go through, have these actors, in this exact situation,” he continued. “Everything else, the wounds will be very notional. This is very effective, as in, they can actually see how to properly triage and effectively take care of those patients.” The tension and stress the troops endured was apparent as hands continued to shake uncontrollably even after the drill was complete. “It was chaotic and hard to think,” said Lance Cpl. Ryan Avery, a Marine from T.S. Company, still shakenup from when his group went through. Avery explained how he had to really focus on one thing at a time and rely on his previous training, methodically going step-by-step, to treat the various injuries. The role players did not hold back, but were very dynamic – yelling, constantly moving, being uncooperative, and pretending to go
into shock – making it more difficult to treat their injuries. “This is a very high pressure situation,” said Chrobot. “Our actors are very well trained, and they are going to be putting pressure on these Marines, yelling at them. It puts pressure on the Marines to go back to their training, develop muscle memory, and effectively take care of those patients, get them back to the (casualty collection point), triage them, treat them, and then get them up to the (landing zone) for higher care. “ Overall, this training pulls troops outside their comfort zones and really affords them the opportunity to utilize their training, and see what areas need more work and practice. “This was good training,” said Soberon. “It was a really big eye-opener for how I need to prepare myself because I will probably be put in (a similar) situation in the future.”

Maj. Gen. Raymond C. Fox, commanding general, II Marine Expeditionary Force, speaks to Marines, sailors and guests following 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade’s Presidential Unit Citation Award Ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Sept. 14.
Marines and sailors of 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation during a ceremony held in honor of 2nd MEB Sept. 14. The 28,000 Marines and sailors who served in Afghanistan in 2009 and 2010 earned the unit’s second Presidential Unit Citation, the highest award given to a unit in the United States military. The unit earned their first award in 2003 in Iraq. Honorable guests in attendance included Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, Commandant of the Marine Corps General James F. Amos and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Michael P. Barrett. Mabus presented the battle streamer to 2nd MEB during the ceremony, placing the new ribbon on the unit’s battle standard. Maj. Gen. Lawrence D. Nicholson, who served as the 2nd MEB commanding general, and Sgt. Maj. Ernest K. Hoopi’i, who served as sergeant major for 2nd MEB in Afghanistan from January 2009 to June 2010. Task Force Leatherneck accepted the nation’s highest unit award on behalf of the Marines and sailors of 2nd MEB. “The skill, the professionalism, the devotion, and the
heroics of this unit cannot be overstated and neither can their accomplishments,” said Mabus. “I’m honored to be here.” According to Mabus, the Marines of 2nd MEB were not only great warriors who struck at the heart of the Taliban insurgency, but they also built schools, helped to train Afghan forces, used female engagement teams, and left not only a safer place, but a place governed by the rule of law. “I have gone to Helmand province and places like Marjah – you can walk to the market now,” Mabus said. “You see kids playing everywhere, (people) going to the market and buying things. It’s a very safe environment, and it’s all because of the skill and courage of this unit.” For many Marines in attendance, the ceremony wasn’t about personal recognition. It was an tribute for those who did not return. “There are a lot of times on a day-to-day basis my friends aren’t recognized,” said Cpl. Aaron M. San Miguel, a squad leader with 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, who deployed with 2nd MEB. “I’ll be able to wear this ribbon because of their sacrifices and the time we shared over there. Granted, they didn’t make it home, but they still earned one. I’ll be able to wear it for them. Every time I wear it, other Marines and people will know we all did it together.”

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. TRAINING FROM 1A “We both worked off each other,” Frick added, while other 24th MEU Marines echoed Frick’s statements, saying they were impressed with the shared professionalism of the French Marines “The Marines greatly enjoyed getting to know their counterparts, most especially during their down time at the joint bivouac,” Gallo said. “I watched the Marines swap stories and MREs, listen with interest at the capabilities brief given by the French, and come together during execution to accomplish the mission.” The Marines were training with the French for the past few weeks and scheduled future training, which helps each country’s military learn how to operate in different environments and prepare for potential realworld scenarios. “Ultimately, it was an opportunity to gain a greater appreciation of the joint planning process and get the Marines out training in an austere environment with harsh terrain they wouldn’t experience anywhere else,” concluded Gallo. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a theater reserve and crisis response force for the U.S. Central Command and 5th Fleet area of responsibility. PICKETT FROM 1A transport and maintenance, making sure the MEU can operate in these circumstances.” In addition to setting up infrastructure, each unit will focus on various types of training specific to their purpose in the MAGTF, such as live firing weapons systems for the ground combat element, providing personnel lifts for the air combat element, and honing convoy skills for the logistics combat element. Although only a small sampling of the capabilities each brings to the fight, it represents skill sets each unit practiced on its own, but now needs to prepare to do alongside and in support of three others. The Marines and sailors are testing their limits, and identifying weaknesses and strengths, which all needs to be done before they must integrate even more at the MEU Interop, which will show how the units can work together. “Napoleon said, ‘Men always take into consideration their wants, and never their abilities,’” said Artagos. “Once we figure out what we can do, we can run smoothly from there.” LEADERSHIP FROM 1A the breed of men and women in our military as it is known today would no longer exist. “Society wouldn’t function the way it does if we didn’t have law enforcement officers and didn’t have military members who were willing to put their lives on the line for their country, their state, their city or town,” said Guerreiro. “We wouldn’t be the great country we are.” Guerreiro goes on to describe today’s breed of military members as a warrior class unlike the average citizen. “It’s the warrior breed, either it’s in you or it’s not,” said Guerreiro. “We are all a little different, all of us. The protectors of freedom, law enforcement and military members. Your natural born instinct is to run away from fire, peril, and danger, yet we run towards it.” “It’s overcoming and facing fear, that’s courage,” said Guerreiro.

Family man turns Marine communicator CPL. ED GALO
Regimental Combat Team 6
Standing over six feet tall, Lance Cpl. Justin Nobles can look pretty intimidating. But for anyone who spends more than five minutes talking to him, they quickly find a soft spoken guy with a country accent. Nobles, radio technician, Regimental Combat Team 6, grew up living mostly with his father. His father would work long hours to be able to better provide for him, which is where Nobles says he learned to work hard himself. “I’ve always looked up to my father,” he said. “He always worked shift work, ever since I can remember. He would sometimes work 12 to 18 hour shifts to provide for me Since my dad worked so much, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents,” he continued. “They were like a second set of parents. My grandfather is a real great man. He even started the school system where I live. He definitely taught me how to be a man.” Even though Nobles was very family oriented growing up, he admits he made the wrong friends for a while. If it wasn’t for a near death experience, he wouldn’t have joined the Marine Corps. “Where I come from, people either do the right thing or the wrong thing,” he said. “I got kicked out of school several times; I just couldn’t get my head on straight. I was making some bad choices and some bad friends. It felt like a bad streak a mile wide.” Things changed one day while Nobles was relaxing in a canoe on a river near his hometown. Suddenly, a boat in front of him got stuck and the two vessels collided. Nobles’ canoe flipped upside down, and he was pinned underwater while the canoe was wedged against the boat. “I just thought to myself ‘well this is it, this is how it’s going to end,’” he said. As his life flashed before him, he realized he hadn’t done much with it. He says he felt God was giving him a wake up call. Nobles managed to get his footing and stand up underwater, pushing the canoe out of the way and dislodging it from the boat. “I really felt like if I died then, I

Although Nobles didn’t originally plan on being a radio technician, he says he couldn’t have been given a better job in the Marine Corps. wouldn’t have done anything with my life,” he said. “That next day I went to the Marine recruiter’s office.” He chose the Marine Corps over the other services because of a cousin who fought in Desert Storm. “I just had so much respect for him growing up I guess it just translated into respect for the Marine Corps,” he said. “Once you get the mind set you want to be a Marine, settling for anything else isn’t something you want to do.” “I honestly didn’t choose my (occupation),” said Nobles. “I thought I was coming in as infantry. I didn’t even know the Marine Corps had a job like this. Considering he didn’t get the job he wanted, Nobles says he couldn’t have gotten a better job. “I love fixing all these radios. It’s just like a big puzzle, and you have to figure out which piece is missing or broken,” he said with a smile while simultaneously updating the software on some radios. “My job is almost like
being a redneck. Rednecks fix everything supposedly broken, you know.” One of Nobles’ fondest memories is when he went to Forward Operating Base Delhi to try and fix a radio. He says when he arrived, he was told to rest because he had arrived late at night, but Nobles had a broken radio and a mission to accomplish. “That particular one was broken since August of 2011,” Nobles said. “(Third Battalion, 3rd Marines), (3rd Battalion, 5th Marines) and RCT-5 all tried to fix it, but no one could. I fixed it in five hours. I was worried there for a minute, because I thought I wasn’t going to be able to fix it.” Watching Nobles work on different radios, it’s easy to see his work ethic. “It’s really just a pride thing,” he said. “There’s no sense in doing some thing half (way). It’s all about being a man and taking pride in what you do. It’s why I try so hard to learn new things about my (field) and try and better myself.”

(Right) Jim McMahon, 1985 Chicago Bears’ quarterback, watches his ball as it soars toward a hole during the Scarlet and Gold Invitational golf tournament at Paradise Point aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Monday. (Below) McMahon poses for a photo with Marines during a fish fry to unite service members with tournament celebrities Monday. McMahon joined a myriad of other celebrities, community members and wounded service members for the three-day golf tournament to benefit Hope for the Warriors.
ounded service members commonly find themselves facing challenges they never knew existed. When an injury turns a daily chore into a marathon-caliber event, it’s easy to forsake everything other than what is absolutely necessary. Many also find themselves suddenly jerked from their comfort zone. Learning to cope with a reality they never imagined, time to relax and unwind is never taken for granted. The Scarlet and Gold Invitational golf tournament aims to help wounded service members revisit their old definition of normal. All tournament proceeds benefit Hope for the Warriors foundation, and are used to help wounded service members and their families in tangible ways. With the help
of Hope for the Warriors, approximately 50 wounded service members joined legendary athletes and entertainers for three days of golf and fellowship in eastern North Carolina. The tournament began Sunday with Opening Ceremonies at River Landing Country Club in Wallace, N.C., and ended Tuesday night with a traditional Marine Corps Field Mess Night. Teams spent Monday golfing at Paradise Point golf course aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Hosted by retired Maj. Gen. Robert C. Dickerson and retired Col. John Kopka, the third Annual Scarlet and Gold Invitational boasted more than 30 six-person golf teams. Each team was comprised of four players, one celebrity and one wounded service member. “When we invite our service members to come play, they have a wide range of emotions,” explained Peggy Rochon, Hope for the Warriors southeast regional director. “They’re a little hesitant but very excited. When they come off the course after the first day, you can tell how much they enjoyed themselves. They come back with the celebrities like their old buddies. It becomes very comfortable very quickly.” Hope for the Warriors provided all necessary equipment for the wounded SEE GOLF 7B

Anglers scramble for rods Second mullet run predicts strong fall
Anglers were jumping for joy with last week’s second mullet run of the season. I never saw mullet in such large quantities running the shoreline. Thousands of mullet invaded the local creeks, sounds and waterways. While I am rarely willing to publicly predict a strong fishing season, I feel comfortable saying the autumn is going to make anglers very happy. It’s not too late to watch the mullet jump. Visit any of the local fishing piers, and you will surely see them swimming in droves. With the recent cold front and brisk wind, it is no shock we experienced another mullet run, but most of the anglers I spoke with are still amazed at the strength of the mullet who took over our coast. There is surely strength in numbers. Along with the second mullet run of the season, anglers were pleasantly surprised by the number of speckled trout caught last week. While the speckled trout laid low during the summer, several anglers reported
catches of two to three-pound speckled trout in the Emerald Isle surf last week. The surf was also energized with silversides, which drew the attention of everything from Albacore to Spanish mackerel off the coast and along the shoreline. While the slot drum and flounder seemed less thrilled with the silversides than other fish, they still took to bait occasionally. Flounder catches were sporadic, and many of the drum measured outside the 18 to 27-inch limit. Most of the slot drum caught within the limit were caught near Ft. Macon and Bear Island. Like their top-feeding friends, the bottomfeeders are starting to bite more consistently. Sea mullet, spots and pompano were caught last week. Most catches came long after dusk, from anglers fishing from piers and the surf. I am thrilled to report the king mackerel bite, like everything else, is starting to perk up. While there were not many king mackerel caught on the fishing piers, the offshore bite and the east side of the Cape Lookout Shoals were strongholds for king mackerels last week. There were also reports of jumping king mackerel by anglers trolling for Spanish mackerel offshore last weekend. As is typical with king mackerel and Spanish mackerel,
timing is everything. Anglers who made it offshore last weekend were pleased to learn the wahoo bite was still strong and shows no signs of disappearing. The east side of the Cape Lookout Shoals, the Swansboro Hole and the Big Rock all lent anglers a hand with the wahoo. Marlin and bailer dolphin are still popular in these areas, as well. Surf and pier fishermen will be pleased to know the mullet stop nets and gill nets along Bogue Banks beaches were reauthorized for use in 2012. From Oct. 1 to Nov. 30, anglers may use these nets for personal gain. The Eighth Annual Inside and Out Tournament is scheduled for Oct. 13. This year, the proceeds of the tournament will help local fisherman Capt. Charles Brown in his battle against cancer. The tournament, sponsored by the Coastal Conservation Association, will make headquarters in the Beaufort Boathouse on Taylor Creek. The CCA’s annual banquet will take place Oct. 11. Finally, a list of upcoming events anglers may find entertaining. The Emerald Isle Park and Recreation department, along with the Reel Outdoors is sponsoring a couple of tournaments. The first is the Sixth Annual Flounder Tournament from Sept. 22 to Oct. 6. The second is the 10th Annual Gordie McAdams Trout Tournament from Oct. 20 to Dec. 1. Both tournaments are free, but anglers must pre-register at the Reel
Outdoors Bait and Tackle Shop in Emerald Isle or at the Emerald Isle Park and Recreation. Basic skills and seamanship is presented by the Coast guard Auxiliary Flotilla 20-10. The course is a six-week commitment and begins Oct. 1 at the Emerald Isle Coast Guard station. The class will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday and Thursday and covers boating, navigational rules, safety equipment, boat aids and numerous other subjects. This comprehensive course is available for recreational boaters, and satisfies both federal and state requirements for all boat operators. Pre-registration is not required but is recommended since the class often fills to capacity and has a waiting list. The cost of the class is $35 per student. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, and can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page at any time. More information on the boating safety class can be found online. For more information on the six-week boating course or to register for the class contact Barbara Pohlman at 252-393-2436 or by email at email@example.com.

Non-pigskin fans find joy in watching football
Allow me to be perfectly honest. I fail to see what is incredibly thrilling about football. I know football is America’s “greatest game” but I’ve never understood why people like to watch 22 large men in spandex suits attack each other for 10 to 15 second intervals over a three-hour time-span. Autumn features diehard football fans in their finest hour. With pizza, wings, chili and their beverage of choice, there is no doubt many adults find themselves glued to the television every weekend during the fall. These insane football fans take over every restaurant with televisions mounted on the wall, numerous homes, pizza delivery cars and churches. Pastors begin making remarks about teams that illicit cheers or groans from the pews. School teachers display team paraphernalia on their walls. Even objective journalists cut out team emblems and staple them to their corkboards. Whether they are fans of the college-football scene or prefer to
stick with the professionals, football fans are some of the most loyal and defensive people around. Insult their team and see if you get away without listening to them talk about the athletes, coaches, other fans, and their grandma’s second cousin’s dog’s love for their team. It always amazes me how deeply rivalries run in football. I know it shouldn’t since I’m not at all shocked by how defensive people get about their favorite soccer or baseball team, but I can’t help raise my eyebrows every time somebody proclaims their deep and unwavering love for a group of grown men they’ve never met. While I am certainly not the best football fan you’ll ever meet, I’m not completely ignorant about the game or the way rivalries work. In fact, I’m competitive enough I’ve been known to say something controversial in order to spark a conversation about rival teams. With the recent release of the Associated Press’ Top 25 teams circulating online and in print, teasing friends about team rivalries is non-negotiable. I don’t know a soul who was surprised by the top two teams, Alabama and Louisiana State University. Looking at these two teams, it’s almost like the 2011 football season never ended. Alabama is still ahead by a hair, and Louisiana is chomping at the bit to find their way to the
number one spot. While these two teams duke it out, everybody else is holding on for dear life, hoping to stay on the Top 25 list for the entire season. Last year, L.S.U. held the number one spot on the Top 25 list. Without the probability that either team will be involved in a major game upset before they play each other in November, fans are left with no other option but to wait and see what the rest of the season brings. If you’re like me, you may not be anxiously awaiting the next big game, but you stay engaged to have something to talk and joke about during the commercial breaks. If you don’t believe me, go find an Alabama fan, stand in front of them and proclaim your love for all things Auburn. If you are a football fan or know somebody who is, join the Globe’s Football Fantasy weekly contest.

After a long day of fishing, archery and other camping activities, participants settled down with s’mores and a campfire to watch a movie on a large blowup screen.

Family campout features fun, food, film JESSIE HEATH Sports editor
heir cars loaded with tents, sleeping bags, fishing poles and backpacks, families descended upon Hospital Point recreation area Saturday afternoon for a night of fun, food and camping. After having to cancel a S’mores Family Campout earlier in the summer due to rain, the Outdoor Adventures’ division of Marine Corps Community Services was eager to get families outside to enjoy the September weather
aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Unlike the rain-soaked campout earlier, the September gathering generated nothing but blue skies, warm weather and plenty of laughter to go around. “It’s absolutely beautiful outside today,” remarked Tara Deweese. “With winter approaching, it seems like a good time to get out and enjoy the weather while it’s so pretty.” Deweese’s family, along with Zoei Scott and her family, made the trip to MCB Camp Lejeune from Chesapeake, V.A., to visit their friends, the Martynuik family.
When they heard about the campout, they decided to take part and contacted Outdoor Adventures’ to sign up. Their weekend camping trip allowed their children to play with each other, and meet other kids in a safe and controlled setting. It also gave their parents plenty of time to catch up and enjoy the scenery of the campsite. “We’ve taken a few walks together, ate together and are enjoying the ability to spend quality time with each other,” said Scott. Nestled on the edge of the
New River, the Hospital Point Recreation Area lent itself to the perfect destination for the S’mores Family Campout participants. The Outdoor Adventures’ staff members provided fishing poles, archery equipment and bait for families, who passed the time wading in the water along the edge of the river, walking around the recreation area, playing on jungle gyms, and learning to shoot a bow and arrow. While the older participants enjoyed
spending time together, the youngest members of the S’mores Family Campout kept adults on their toes as they learned to fish and mastered basic archery skills. “I like the worms for fishing,” explained Lexi Esquer. “You put them on a hook, and they wiggle in the water to make your fish come look.” With the help of recreational assistant Gabby Higgins, a large group of participants learned to handle a rod and reel, and ventured to the water’s edge in search of the
biggest catch of the day. Zach Martynuik reeled in a large fish while his family and friends cheered him on. “He’s pretty good at fishing,” Martynuik’s sister admitted as she watched her brother unhook his catch and return it to the water. “He caught a big one and my dad hasn’t yet.” Other campers were drawn toward the archery skills class, where they found themselves learning to notch, aim and shoot arrows into targets. With their fathers and Outdoor Adventures’ staff members guiding them, young participants SEE CAMPOUT 5B

CAMPOUT FROM 4B learned the proper method to safe shooting. As the sun began to set, families gathered for a group cookout, followed by s’mores and a movie on a large blow-up screen. When the fire was lit, children eagerly gathered around it and lined up to receive jumbo marshmallows to roast. Older participants helped their younger siblings, who would run to Outdoor Adventures’ staff members and parents as soon as their marshmallow was deemed “perfectly toasted.” “I like them when they’re hot but not burnt,” said Christian “Kitch” Weaver. “I also like them in cones, but I think I like them with crackers and chocolate better.” To help make a unique experience for their campers, Outdoor Adventures’ staff members put pieces of chocolate inside waffle cones, wrapped the cones in tin foil, and put them near the fire while children roasted marshmallows. As soon as the roasting process was complete, they gave the young adventurer’s their choice of the regular graham cracker and chocolate, or the warmed waffle cone. As the roasting continued, participants settled down on lawn chairs and in the grass to watch a family-friendly film together. With little one’s yawning and still snacking on s’mores, the S’mores Family Campout participants dozed through the night, lulled to sleep by the peaceful lapping of waves against the shore. “We really enjoyed the time to hang out with friends and do something fun with each other,” said Martynuik. “It made for a good weekend together.” The next S’mores Family Campout will be held Oct. 20 and 21.

Local olympic boxer visits Capitol Hill JESSIE HEATH Sports editor
The last six months were a whirlwind of activity for Marine Corps Boxing Team member Jamel Herring. Herring, a sergeant stationed aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, earned a spot on the United States Olympic boxing team last spring after attending his second set of Olympic trials in Rio de Janeiro. Following his placement on the team, he traveled to London and competed in the 2012 Olympic games alongside legendary athletes. Last week, Herring’s Olympic journey came full circle as he traveled to Washington, D.C. with other Olympians to visit President Obama. “Really, the best way to explain meeting President Obama is to say it was a great trip,” said Herring. “It was more than what I expected I would ever get to do.” With the rest of Team U.S.A., Herring listened to the President address a large crowd. When he was invited to the White House, Herring thought his visit would be marked by listening to a speech and being shuffled away from the President as quickly as possible. Instead, he was honored to personally meet and speak with President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden following the speech. Upon learning Herring was an active-duty service member, the President commended him on his service to his country. “I told him I was a Marine and a boxer, and he told me he was really proud of the job I was doing, what I did overseas and what I did in London,” Herring commented. “It was special to hear it coming from him.” The Olympic athletes also went on a tour of the White House. The time spent together at the White House gave the athletes, many of whom have not seen each other since the Olympics ended last month, time to catch up and talk about life at home. “Being back with my teammates was a feeling I can’t explain to anybody who wasn’t there,” said Herring. “For the last year, these people have been my family, and in the last few months we grew closer than a lot of people do. “It felt like a year since I’d seen the members of the boxing team,” Herring added. “We knew we only had a day and a half together, but we did everything we could to make it worthwhile. Who knows when we’ll see each other again.” After spending a day with friends made at the Olympic games, Herring said leaving and coming home was hard. “I did want to have a while longer with my teammates,” admitted Herring. “But, I also wanted to get back to my family, even after a day and a half.” Little did Herring know as he boarded a plane back to Jacksonville, his day of excitement was far from over. Waiting for his return was a welcome committee of nearly a dozen community members. With signs and banners they stood at Albert J. Ellis Airport to greet Herring back to town. When he arrived at his layover in Charlotte, N.C., Herring was greeted by a reserve unit, and spent time catching up with a friend he deployed to Iraq with in 2005. “I got to talk to some of the Marines in a reserve unit while I was at the USO in Charlotte, and I had a friend I hadn’t seen since we came home from Iraq who came with them to talk with me,” said Herring. “Seeing her was a great moment on my trip home and one I’ll keep with me for a while. “It shows what a family
the Marine Corps is,” Herring continued. Despite a delayed flight and getting back two hours later than his expected arrival time, being welcomed by the community was a great experience. “Seeing the community waiting for me was a wonderful feeling,” said Herring. “To know they were dedicated enough and cared about me enough to wait an
extra couple of hours while my plane was delayed said a lot about the Jacksonville and Camp Lejeune communities.” Herring, who extended his contract in order to represent the Marine Corps in the London Olympics, admitted while his enlistment is up later this week, he didn’t think the White House visit marked the end of his Marine Corps career.
“I’m a big believer in the ‘Once a Marine, always a Marine’ motto,” Herring explained. “I don’t think of this as the end of my career. It’s a cool way to end, but not something I really hold as the mark to the end of my career. “I plan on keeping in contact with all my friends,” Herring added. “Obviously I’m not leaving and forgetting about all of them. The
Marine Corps shaped my life and I will miss it. Getting out and moving on to the next phase of my life is something I have to do for my family. It’s time to move on and up to better things.” Photo by Jessie Heath

GOLF FROM 1B service members who took part in the celebrity golf tournament. Paired with a celebrity on each team, service members were also given the unique experience to share their story with somebody who was eager and willing to listen, sympathize and discuss the day-to-day struggles military families face. â€œThe celebrities are very good at caring for our service members,â€? said Lee Moore of Leemo Marketing. â€œThey are excited to come and join them.â€? Robin Kelleher, the co-founder and CEO of Hope for the Warriors, believes events that unit service members and celebrities have a remarkable equality power. â€œItâ€™s good for both groups,â€? said Kelleher. â€œThese men and women who come to play with the celebrities are honored and recognized by the people they admire and never thought they would meet. â€œItâ€™s good for the celebrities because it helps keep them grounded,â€? Kelleher continued. â€œThey need to be reminded they have powerful voices. They can be the best hope for wounded service members who depend on organizations like (Hope for the Warriors). They have a chance to use their voice, reach out and touch the lives of service members.â€? For celebrities like singer and songwriter Billy Austin, the chance to take part in the golf tournament was a humbling experience. Austin, who flew to the tournament with Major League Baseball hall of famer Johnny Bench and Doug Flynn, said being paired with a service member was the most humbling experience of the week. â€œDalton is a brave and unselfish young man who opened my eyes to the sacrifice these kids make every day to defend my rights,â€? admitted Austin. â€œItâ€™s humbling to see and support kids like him. I want to show him Iâ€™m here to talk about life and walk through it with him for a few days. Itâ€™s the least I can do.â€? The tournament left a two-fold impression on Austin, who explained it helped him remember what it takes to live in a free country and how essential it is to take time to speak with service members he meets in the future. â€œToo often itâ€™s easy to just say hello and keep moving,â€? said Austin. â€œI need to take time to show my reverence for what kids like (Dalton) do for us.â€? Other celebrities had similar experiences golfing with their service member counterparts. 1985 Bearâ€™s quarterback Jim McMahonâ€™s day with service member Will Enriquez and his service
dog impacted the way McMahon thought about his freedom. â€œWhen youâ€™re talking to these men and women about what they do on a regular basis, you realize how much we depend on them,â€? said McMahon. â€œWhat service members do helps me live my life. I couldnâ€™t live the American dream without their willingness to fight for it.â€? As their first day of golfing ended Monday, the teams met with nearly 200 Marines and sailors aboard MCB Camp Lejeune for a fish fry and day one prizes. Including service members in the fish fry helped wounded service members re-connect with old friends and gave celebrities another chance to reach out and impact lives. â€œWe think itâ€™s important

to have these celebrities on base so they get a real idea of what it feels like to be on a working military base with regular service members,â€? said Gary Levitch, one of the event organizers. â€œThis is the active-duty service membersâ€™ chance to see they are supported and cared for be big-name people.â€? While the scores were posted with the first day of the tournament, Rochon, Levitch and Moore all stressed the real importance of the tournament laid in the relationships and mutual respect built between two groups who view each other as heroes. â€œOur service members get to play with the people they think are heroes, and our celebrities get to play with and meet the heroes they admire and respect,â€? said Rochon.

Camp Lejeune honors 9/11 first responders LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
September 11 is a time of reflection and remembrance for many Americans every year. Some people pay their respects to those who lost their lives in the plane crashes, while others pay tribute to the service members who fought and still are fighting overseas as a result of the attack. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune held a Law Enforcement Fellowship dinner at the Officers’ Club aboard the installation in honor of remembering the first responders on the scene of the attack, many of whom lost their lives in the line of duty. Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune, was in attendance and spoke at the dinner. “First responders always have one of the most important jobs when responding to an emergency,” said Gorry. “One of my favorite responsibilities here is the first responders we have on base. I worked hand-in-hand with them and (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) agents, and they work hard to provide a secure environment for our families.” The event itself was coordinated not just to remember 9/11 but specifically for the first responders who acted during the attacks. “It was 11 years ago today, a lot of people sacrificed their lives, and since that time there are many unsung heroes out there,” said Ernie Lee, a district attorney who spoke at the event. “Federal, state and local agencies made great strides to keep us safe during the last 11 years. Those are the people you don’t hear much about.” Lee said the agencies are always cooperative and very easy to work with as a district attorney. He congratulated them on always doing a good job in their work as well. “When I’m at home with my wife and kids, they are out doing the real work and keeping the community safe for everyone,” said Lee. Law enforcement officials were celebrated during the social dinner, having their dedication to responsibility and duty praised by many who spoke during the gathering. “We don’t shorten our responsibilities,” said Sheriff Ed Brown, a speaker at the dinner. “We always get the job done. It’s what anyone here will tell you. We have a mission, and we will (accomplish) that mission.” Brown said he is grateful for the people willing to do a dangerous job in the law enforcement field. “Thank God for those who will step on the firing line and take responsibility of putting their lives on the line for the security of our community, protection of life and the defense of our country.”

Mackey, who lost both legs to an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, 2009, had difficulty moving about his house on prosthetic legs. The Semper Fi Fund and the Home Depot Foundation renovated his house to help alleviate some of the new obstacles he now encounters in a daily life.
CPL CLAYTON CPL. VONDERAHE
2nd Marine Division
he Marine Corps is a brotherhood renown for taking care of each other, helping each other back up each time they fall. Retired Sgt. Maj. Raymond Mackey was reminded of the dedication by Marines, as well as a thankful civilian community, recently, during the flag raising ceremony held at his Richlands, N.C., home. Mackey, who suffered two above-the-knee amputations from an improvised explosive device during combat operations in Afghanistan three years ago, is ‘gravity checked,’ as he puts it, frequently, in his own home. The prosthetic legs he received require time and personal adjustment to master, and
are still difficult to ma maneuver through a typical household. “The house was fitted to where somebody wearing prosthetics like me can walk around without falling down or sinking in mud,” explained Mackey. “I can now do basic, everyday things, and enjoy my own house and my own yard instead of being a prisoner in it.” Two weeks prior to the flag pole dedication Mackey was notified he was selected to receive free renovations on his house from the Home Depot Foundation and the Semper Fi Fund. These renovations provided Mackey with the ability to move easily about his home and give him more freedom in his own house. Maj. Gen. John Toolan, the former commanding general of 2nd Marine Division, and Sgt. Maj. Bryan Zickefoose, the division sergeant major,
were among the guests present for the dedication of the flagpole and the celebration of the new renovations made to the house. Although a small ceremony, many of the guests were friends, neighbors and those who were influenced by Mackey. The renovations are valued at approximately $15,000, and include access ramps, leveled grounds, a patio, pergola and fire-pit, improved fencing and the flagpole, along with several other renovations. Volunteers from both the Home Depot Foundation and the Semper Fi Fund gave their time for two weeks prior to the dedication to complete the renovations and spend time with Mackey. “We were approached by the Semper Fi Fund and told Sgt. Maj. Mackey would be a prime candidate to do a project for,” said Brian Webber, a Home Depot store
m manager. “When we contacted the Mackeys’ they said they were only looking for two things, he wanted a flag pole and she (Mackey’s wife) wanted ramps because she said it was hard watching him go to the pool.” A color guard posted and presented Mackey with the American and Marine Corps flags fly proudly from the new flag pole in his front yard. The mild breeze waved the flags gently once they were raised for the first time. “It is a great honor to get to know you all,” Mackey said while addressing the crowd during the ceremony. “I can’t say enough about the organizations that came out here, helped me out and are continuing to help other Marines. Until you’re actually here at the ground level, you really can’t appreciate the effects of what they do.”

Gorry, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune, after diligently serving in the Coast Guard and working as the recreation and off-duty safety program manager for 30 years. Taylor was awarded the Career Service Award for his 40 years of service to the Navy and working as a hazardous communications and inspection program manager by Gorry as well.
“When I came over to base safety, I didn’t realize all the implications involved in it,” said Taylor. “One of the things I did know before coming here was, it’s never about me. It is about the people I serve here. They are the reason I like to work. There are many things I could say about this award today, but most importantly, I am certainly thankful for the opportunity to serve and to work here at base safety.” The two men were given their awards in front of friends and family who supported them during their long and successful journeys throughout their careers. “These two individuals are fully deserving of their awards,” said Gorry. “Both have distinguished military and civil service backgrounds.” Both Gorry and Sgt. Maj. Ernest K. Hoopii, sergeant major of MCI East – MCB Camp Lejeune, shook hands with Turner and Taylor and congratulated them on their successful careers.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
More than 130 million Americans voted in the 2008 presidential election, but the number of active- duty Marines who voted was minimal. Sept. 27 to Oct. 4 is this year’s absentee voting week and voting assistance officers across Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune are stepping up efforts in an attempt to get Marines registered. Active-duty military and their families are often not stationed in the state they are registered to vote, making it difficult to cast their ballots, said 1st Lt. Stephen Otis, installation voting officer and deputy adjutant for Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune. In order to relieve stress and make the voting process easier, individuals can go to www. FVAP.gov, register to vote, and absentee ballots will be mailed to the specified address. Casting a vote is as easy as filling out the ballot and mailing it back. If an individual is not comfortable using the internet or does not know how, alternate options are available. The Federal Post Card Application can be filled out and mailed to state of legal
residence in order to register to vote. The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot is used if the individual’s home state does not send an absentee ballot and can be mailed in to cast a vote. Otis said all the information needed as well as the forms for the FPCA and the FWAB can be found at any voting assistance office. “Ultimately it’s up to the individual Marines to take the five or 10 minutes to register to vote and then fill out the absentee ballot,” said Otis. “We can only do so much but were doing our best to encourage Marines to vote because it’s important for their voice to be heard.” Everyone has a voice and everyone has an opinion, which is what our government is formulated around, and just because we are not located in our state of residence is no reason our voice cannot be heard, said Otis. Whether it’s because people find it difficult or lack the time, voting assistance officers everywhere are striving to inform the public and offer help in order for the individuals vote to be heard. For more information visit www.FVAP. gov or call the installation voting officer at 451-3033.

Invisible wounds brought to light at TBI resource fair PFC. JOSHUA W. GRANT
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
Improvised explosive devices are a threat to every service member fighting overseas. For those who have faced them, IEDs can leave wounds everyone can see. Serious wounds are not always visible on the exterior, injuries sustained in combat can leave physical ‘invisible wounds,’ like traumatic brain injuries. Those with traumatic brain injuries have a voice and many with resources are listening. A traumatic brain injury resource fair was held aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune recently. Most commonly reported as a concussion, brain injuries are not just caused by IEDs. Explosions, car accidents, sports injuries and any excessive jarring motion of the head can cause a brain injury. With the different incidents comes a different level of injury. Varying from mild to severe, all brain injuries should be treated as important and although injuries are often unseen, there is help out there. Seeking medical help for the injury will ensure treatment, but traumatic brain injuries can leave lasting effects. Problems communicating, the inability

to focus and even post traumatic stress disorder can fester in the wake of a brain injury. Transitioning out of the military can be a problem for an individual who is suffering from a brain injury, said Carolyn Shields-Hebb, the regional care coordinator for the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center. Shields-Hebb serves as a point of contact for service members as a way to relieve the stress of dealing with so many people trying to help. She can offer any resource someone suffering with a brain injury could need. “I have a resource for everything, and if I don’t have it I’ll find it,” said ShieldsHebb. Deborah Waun, the program manager and a regional education coordinator for the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, said she teaches everyone from spouses to corpsman to unit commands in order to educate the community on traumatic brain injuries and how to recognize the symptoms. “It’s the signature of this war, and it’s a hidden wound unless you have a big scar on your head,” said Waun. Educating the community helps reveal those who may have a hidden brain injury, but service members also had an outlet through the fair.
Waun said her job is to educate about traumatic brain injuries but to also educate the wounded warrior service members about what MCB Camp Lejeune and Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center can provide. The traumatic brain injury fair helped educate active-duty service members but can also help the same service member’s transition out of the military if they decide to leave. Nursing, dental assistants and x-ray technicians are some of the 10 career opportunities offered by the Reintegrate, Educate and Advance Combatants in Healthcare program. The program assists active-duty service members, with at least
90 days of service left, to work and get onthe-job training while earning a degree. “The majority of our students, especially Marines, have no experience or knowledge of a certain career field. They just know they want to work in a particular career field,” said Kevin Kesterson, the REACH career coach at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. Although traumatic brain injuries can often go unnoticed by bystanders, resources and opportunities for those suffering from a brain injury are available and there are many individuals willing to help.

Lt. Dan Band Camp Lejeun S AMY BINKLEY
Assistant Managing Editor
o you still think nice guys finish last? Try telling that to Gary Sinise. The actor and humanitarian blasted through the old adage as he and the Lt. Dan Band returned for a free concert for service members and their families at W.P.T. Hill Field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Sept. 16. “I wanted to come back as soon as possible,” Sinise said. “I’m anticipating giving everyone a good time.” The 12-member band, named after Sinise’s most famous character from “Forrest Gump,” was pumped and ready to play for hundreds of military families who came out for the free afternoon concert. Kandy Mitteff, a military spouse, is a devoted fan of Sinise. While stationed in Twenty-Nine Palms, Calif., with her husband, Mitteff saw the band perform four times. “I love what he does for us even though he doesn’t have to,” she gushed. “He’s such a sweet guy. He deserves every bit of praise he gets.” While he graces both the big and small screens of Hollywood, Sinise gladly turns his spotlight onto the brave men and women who serve the country every chance he gets. “I know where my freedom comes from, and I want to say thank you,” he stated. “We’re lucky we have people who will volunteer to (enlist). It says something about us as a country to have people who continue to want to serve.” War is part of life at MCB Camp Lejeune, but Sinise hoped to give some respite from the weariness it brings by playing familiar songs that span generations. “This base has really been put through it in the past 11 years,” he pointed out. “Families are going through a lot. If I can leave them feeling better than when they got here then I feel like mission accomplished.” Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry welcomed everyone to the event and introduced Medal of Honor recipient Drew Dix who praised the military families for their bravery and strength. “Families have to stick together whether you’re on the battlefield or at home,” he declared. “When you deploy you look out for each other and when you get back, you continue to look out for each other. Our na-
tion is thankful even if they don’t know w how to say it.” Support played a pivotal role in thee theme of the concert not only for those who are physically wounded by war but those who carry unseen scars. Partnering with Dave McIntyre, president resident and CEO of TriWest Healthcare Alliance, ance, Sinise pushed the importance of providing iding help to service members who are suffering ering with depression, anxiety, or other emotional otional and mental issues through programs like ike DSTRESS. Accordin to the website, the DSTRESS RESS Line is a 24/7/365 contact center, providing oviding anonymous phone, chat and online access ccess for non-medical, short-term, solution-focused -focused counseling for circumstances amenable le to brief intervention, including stress and d anger management, grief and loss, the deployment oyment cycle, parent-child relationships, couples les communication, marital issues, relationships onships and relocation. The number is 1-877-4764767734. “What happened to Vietnam veterans ans motivates me to make sure our active duty d like (service members) don’t get left behind that,” Sinise replied. “If you recognizee the signs, it’s up to us to help them. The Marines have really embraced (DSTRESS).” ophone McIntrye took his turn at the microphone and asked everyone in the crowd to take ake out their phones and enter the DSTRESS line phone number. “When you dial the phone and walk away, lk away you’ll find a Marine or a corpsman to talk to who have walked the walk,” McIntyre explained. After giving the important information, he instructed everyone to let loose and enjoy themselves. “Everybody is in for a treat,” he announced. “This is your time. Have fun.” The band played a variety of musical genres from several decades, including the Andrew Sister’s “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” and the Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried.” While people clapped, danced and had a fun time, Sinise and his entourage made sure the message of resiliency, hope and tremendous thanks was clear. “The defense of our country is not forgotten,” he said.

‘Watch’ out for suburban fathers on alien patrol Now playing at Camp Lejeune “THE WATCH” (R) “The Watch” is a comedy with a science-fiction overtone about suburban dads who form a neighborhood watch group to get away from their families. The Watch group allows them time, one night a week, to escape from their day-to-day family routines and boring lives. The group accidentally discovers their town is being overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, who are hatching an alien plot that threatens the entire world. Now the group is forced into action and confronts the problem head on, trying to save their town and the world from total extermination. The neighborhood watch group is portrayed by the following actors: Ben Stiller (“Tower Heist,” “Little Fockers”) as Evan Trautwig, who is a longtime employee at Costco and is a new resident in suburbia. Vince Vaughn (“Couples Retreat,” “The Dilemma”) as Bob Finnerty, a dedicated father, who uses the watch group to spy on his teen-age daughter. Jonah Hill (“Moneyball,” “21 Jump Street”) as Franklin, a resident with emotional problems, whose long life dream of becoming a cop never materialized, and Richard Ayoade (“Bunny and the Bull”) as Jamarcus, a divorced guy out looking
for hookups. Rosemarie DeWitt (“The Company Man”) plays the wife of Evan, and Will Forte portrays the local policeman. Billy Crudup makes a cameo appearance as a new neighbor trying to make friends with Eva. Director Akiva Schaffer (“Hot Rod”), a Saturday Night Live alumn, brings us an outrageous neighborhood watch alongside ferocious aliens oozing green slime who are plotting to take over the world. “The Watch” is a raunchy, slightly silly and wacky summer movie with little more to offer than a few laughs and foul language. What a waste of good comedic talented actors. Note: The movie’s name was recently changed from “Neighborhood Watch” to “The Watch,” after Florida teen Trayvon Martin was killed earlier this year by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. Now playing in Jacksonville “THE WORDS” (PG-13) “The Words” is a complex drama about a writer who takes his breakthrough book from a long-forgotten manuscript. Bradley Cooper (“Hangover,” “Limitless”) stars as Rory Jansen, a desperate young writer with a terrible secret. Longing to publish

the next great American novel, Rory is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve literary success. When he finds a brilliantly written ‘lost’ manuscript, he publishes it as his own. Rory soon becomes a literary sensation. However, he achieves fame and infamy when word leaks his work is not his own. His past comes back to haunt him, while his literary star keeps rising. Rory is forced to acknowledge the steep price he must pay for taking another man’s work. Most of all, he must suffer for placing his ambition and success above life’s most fundamental three words.

Chamber president retires, readies for new adventures LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
Mona Padrick lit the room when she entered, the petite blonde shared words and joyful laughs with the small crowd gathered to celebrate the conclusion of a 16-year adventure. Padrick celebrated her upcoming retirement at the Onslow Chamber of Commerce in Jacksonville, N.C. The 11-year chamber president was an advocate to the community, and helped both leaders of corporations and owners of home-based businesses succeed. As a native to the area, Padrick realized the role of the military in Onslow County and continued her efforts for the service members in the region. From Project CARE to the Military Affairs Committee, the Onslow Chamber of Commerce does its fair share to assist local service members. Project CARE provides assistance to families of deployed military personnel as well as local businesses that may suffer because of large-scale deployments. It also provides a means of boosting community spirit through appreciation events and other activities during the difficult times the military community may face, according to their website. The Military Affairs Committee
keeps a link between the installations in the region and local businesses. The group also honors a service member of the month. â€œIâ€™ve been around military members all of my life,â€? said Padrick. Her parents, both civil employees, often welcomed Marines to their home during the holidays. However, it wasnâ€™t until her time as president that she truly understood what the military was about. Despite not having any personal experience herself, Padrick said sheâ€™s developed an understanding of the lifestyle. â€œI didnâ€™t know much about the mission, protocol or the training,â€? said Padrick. â€œIâ€™ve been able to understand many aspects of the military experience (in her time at the chamber). Iâ€™m very proud to have been accepted by the military folks here, to have them let me Photo by Lance Cpl. Jackeline M. Perez Rivera see what they do.â€?

From there he decided to open up a barbershop of his own in Jacksonville. “What I like most about cutting hair is seeing my customers smile when they get up,” said Leach. “Cutting hair comes naturally. I just wait for the smile when they look in the mirror.” “He makes cutting hair fun and all of the barbers follow his lead,” said Sierra Bryant, a co-worker of Leach. “He’s been a great mentor to me. Everyone who gets to know him remembers him because he is so kind. We’re really like a family here, and it includes the people receiving haircuts.” Leach said most of his barbers have very little experience so he tries to keep them under his wing and

e takes a moment to break from the buzzing of clippers to greet his fellow service member with a smile and handshake, asking all who enter his upbeat barbershop about their day. To Darryl E. Leach, the owner of a local barbershop in Jacksonville, a warm welcome and friendly conversation is just as important as the haircuts. “If I walk into an establishment I’ve been to and they remember me, it makes me feel good,” said Leach. “I just treat people the way I like to be treated. A lot of these guys are from other cities so I want to make them feel at home.” Leach’s barber chair is the closest one to the door, and everyone who walks in is immediately greeted by him in a welcoming fashion. “I love the way they treat you when you come in,” said Lance Cpl. Hayden Brown, a telephone systems and personal computer intermediate repairer with 2nd Intelligence Battalion. “He remembers your name, and if he doesn’t call you by name, he’ll give you a nickname. I love the atmosphere because (Leach and the other barbers) take the time to get to know me.” Brown said Leach always greets those who enter, and gives a high five on your way out wishing you a good day. “He’s definitely got the (public relations) down,” said Brown with a smile. “You’re not going to get this type of friendship and attention anywhere else in town. He’s a great guy, and you can tell he has a good heart.” Leach discovered his future as a barber during his time in the Navy from 1986 through 1989. While stationed at the Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia he visited a family member who owned a barbershop and fell in love with the idea of becoming a barber. “I had a distant cousin of mine who owned a barbershop in Philadelphia,” said Leach. “I saw they had a great time, and made plenty of money. I knew becoming a barber was it for me.” With a little more than a year remaining before ending his time of active service, he took advantage of the tuition assistance program offered to military members and enrolled to Tri-City Barber School in North Philadelphia. After leaving the Navy as petty officer 2nd class and graduating from barber school, he spent more than four years cutting hair in the City of Brotherly Love. In 1993 Leach decided to move back to the Tar Heel state where he was raised to cut the hair of the MCB Camp Lejeune community. Although he was back in his home state, working aboard the base proved to be unsatisfying to him. “I worked at a barber shop on the base, and it’s like an assembly line because we try to push customers through so everyone can get a haircut,” said Leach. “I don’t like it. Our service members need haircuts done well.” Leach then realized in order to get things done the way he wanted them to be done, he had to do it himself.

encourages the barbers to speak to customers. With a large smile on his face Leach said, “You have to be a people person, have good attitude and a positive personality because it helps create great relationships.” There are dozens of barbers in the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune area, but when Leach cuts hair he gets close to the customer’s head as well as their heart. “He’s made an outgoing environment that is warm and welcoming to everyone,” said Jerel Carney, a co-worker of Leach. “I can walk in here depressed or down, but by the end of the day I always walk out smiling. There’s more than one type of barber, but (Leach) is one who keeps people smiling.”

Evening of Broadway shines spotlight on USO AMY BINKLEY
Assistant managing editor
end your regards to Broadway. They know how to put
on a show. The spotlight shown on the USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center’s resemblance to the Great White Way as visitors flocked to the stage for an Evening of Broadway Sept. 14 through 16. With two acts jampacked with hit tunes from classic and modern musicals, local singers and dancers performed with the grace of seasoned professionals for the fundraiser. “It’s exciting to be able to contribute to the USO,” said the show’s director, Nancy St. Charles. “I used to do shows here to a packed house. We’re happy to have a facility we can come to.” As the oldest continu-
ously operating USO in the world, the Jacksonville Center hosted its fair share of talent, but St. Charles wanted to make sure the weekend of performances left their mark on the history of the facility. “You don’t come to my shows and hear bad singing,” she stated pointedly. St. Charles quickly noted the much-needed makeover the stage required and assigned the task to her set designer, John Czarniak, retired petty officer first class and a working party from Camp Johnson’s Motor T School. The group gave the structure and the adjoining stairs a fresh coat of paint and followed by transforming it into a New York City street complete with a taxi cab. As the curtain rose on opening night, the amount of effort put into the show was evident to everyone in attendance. “It’s beyond my expec-
tations,” Czarniak admitted. “Bringing Broadway to Jacksonville is easier than bringing Jacksonville to Broadway. (Shows like this) allow people to enjoy what this place actually has to offer.” Familiar face, Hope Echols Jarman, belted tunes from the productions “Cabaret,” “The Producers” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” She also tackled a modern rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to the applause of the audience. “(These songs) causes people to open their minds to different kinds of music,” said Felicia Terribile, who came to see one of her friends perform. “The kids have fun watching.” Allison Connor commanded the stage as she dramatically, and sometimes comically, embodied several characters from hit musicals. Whether dancing choreography with members of
Diana’s Dance Academy or partnering for a duet with fellow cast member Aimeé Kahl, she kept the crowd engaged with every note. In a town like Jacksonville, there’s no escaping the military’s presence, and Pearl Fox, who retired from the Navy after 24 years, represented the armed services with plenty of punch and pizzazz. “I wanted to support the USO and the mission, and bring attention to it,” SEE BROADWAY 7D

Hope Echols Jarman belts out a modern rendition of â€œSomewhere Over the Rainbowâ€? during An Evening of Broadway at the USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center Sept. 14.
BROADWAY FROM 5D she remarked. â€œA lot of Marines donâ€™t even know the USO is here.â€? Fox jumped at the chance to sing songs from her favorite composers, but she admitted she eyed the vintage musicals for her inspirations. â€œI went back a little further,â€? she said. â€œIf I can encourage any person, Iâ€™d tell them to stay active and involved. Support the arts.â€? Newcomers John Lancaster and Ryan Smith also left an impression on theatre aficionados shouldering big songs like â€œLuck Be a Ladyâ€? and â€œBring Him Home,â€? respectively. Annie Hendry joined Smith for his song from â€œLes MiserablĂŠsâ€? and also held her own during her performance of â€œWishing You Were
Somehow Here Againâ€? from â€œPhantom of the Opera.â€? The big winner of the weekend, however, was the USO, which took in part of the proceeds from each show. â€œOld people and young people come together here to make a new family,â€? St. Charles noted. Though the lights are dimmed, the curtain closed and the audience long since gone, An Evening on Broadway proved thereâ€™s still no business like show business.

Recently I read a wartime story, â€œOnce Upon A Town: The Miracle of North Platte Canteen.â€? In this book Bob Greene tells the World-War-II story of the towns people of North Platte, Neb. One day upon hearing a rumor some of their local boys were coming through town on a troop train, the folks prepared gifts and food for the boyâ€™s planned, 10-minute stop at the train station. When the train stopped at Station North Platte that day, the locals realized the men coming off the train were not their local heroes, but men from a neighboring state. At that point, a spontaneous decision was made, and the townâ€™s people graciously gave the food and gifts to these other soldiers from Kansas. The townâ€™s people concluded, for all intents and purposes, even though they were not â€œtheirâ€? boys, they were somebodyâ€™s boys. Thereafter, the town innocently set in motion a five-year practice of greeting and encouraging all the service members who passed through on each and every troop train for the duration of the war. The book tells the accounts from both the soldierâ€™s and the townâ€™s peopleâ€™s viewpoint. It is heartwarming for many reasons, including the profound impact these 10-minute stops had on the 6 million young soldiers who passed through North Platte from December 1941 and well into 1946. All they had was 10 minutes. Then again, sometimes it just takes one minute to make a difference in someoneâ€™s life.
