Marines Plant Old Glory On Iwo Jima Island Graphic Story of Iwo Fight Told By a Marine By: Sgt. Henry A. Weaver, 3rd. IWO JIMA (Via Navy Radio) - (Delayed) - Five days, one hour and 30 minutes after American Marines of the Fifth Division waded across the black beaches of the southern end of this island, the American Flag flew for the first time from the summit of the 566foot crater, Suribachi Yama. This bloody battle for Iwo Jima is far from over, but the weary Marines, with the biggest part of the job still ahead of them, took heart at the sight of their Flag flying above them. They had the added knowledge that it was flying for the first time only 660 air miles from the Japanese mainland. After four days of the severest kind of fighting, 24 hours of drenching rain, the morning dawned bright and blue, with just a faint suggestion of clouds. MOUNT PLASMA As the sun rose higher, the Marines started their assault and final climb up the live, but not currently eruptive volcano they have been calling “Mount Plasma.” Men in lines, which by now were spaced at about one Marine every 25 yards, squinted at the top of the volcano, where a patrol of five men was seen crawling slowly up the sloping southeast face. The going was slow for the patrol. As they climbed over the craggy surface near the summit, they turned back momentarily. These men who for more than 100 hours had battled against the stiffest defense yet seen in the Pacific, were in no hurry. They had fought through this long. This was no time to be impatient. It was 13 minutes to 10 a.m., when the small patrol first was seen near the rim.
Down at the base of this looming fortress with its countless caves, gun emplacements, pockmarked with Japanese positions, men of the 28th Regiment waited. A few minutes later the men below saw a lone Marine make his way up the hard-lipped gully slanting down from the crater’s peak. The figure — tiny, defiant — stood in black outline against the sky, waved, then went down into the volcano. At 10:30 a.m., about a half hour later, a patrol of about 40 men stood around the crater’s rim. The American flag was run up on an improvised mast. Among the first men to climb the heights to raise the colors was Marine Combat Correspondent T/Sgt. Keyes Beech, Akron, Ohio, a veteran of Tarawa. Squatting in the center of the line of Marines watching from below were Marine tankers of a Fifth Division unit, a pitiful few of the group that spearheaded the frontal attack five days before. Each day their ranks had been depleted dreadfully. But this morning the tankers were there to be in on the finish. This morning there were few left to fight, but they still stood sturdily, their guns pointed up the volcano. While the flag waved overhead, the deep thunder of artillery came from the northern end of the island. Men of the 28th turned their faces northward. The flag flew over Suribachi, but the noise to the north told them that the battle for Iwo was not half completed. (An earlier Associated press dispatch from Iwo said the flag was planted atop Suribachi by platoon Sgt. Ernest Thomas Jr., of Tallahassee, Fla.)
Marines charge from a landing craft to hit the beach at Iwo Jima as a preceding wave heads over a terrace a few yards from the water. This terrace so hampered vehicle movement that they became easy prey for Japanese gunners, and for two days practically all supplies were moved to the front lines by hand.

Camp Lejeune Plays Host to Armed Forces Day Visitors N
early 4,000 visitors, armed to the teeth with cameras and questions, invaded Camp Lejeune Saturday to see what makes this big Marine base tick, when “open house” was held to celebrate Armed Forces Day here. With “Defenders of Freedom” as a theme, a program was devised to show the public the part played by Camp Lejeune in our armed forces establishment. The parade ground, converted into a giant showcase, was lined with rows of guns, equipment and vehicles to
be reviewed by the visitors, with Marines on hand to explain its use and operation. At the same time, buses were available at the field house throughout the day to take visitors on a guided tour of the base. Staff Sgt. Joe Bigelow, who acted as a guide, reported the guests were amazed at the size and facilities of the base, and were particularly impressed by the Naval Hospital and the officers’ quarters at Paradise Point. The continual clicking of camera shutters when regulations permitted, and an unceasing barrage of questions
from the guests gave some measure of the interest shown. “They asked about everything,” said Sgt. Bigelow, “from the largest buildings to the smallest sentry shacks.” Probably the highlight of the program was a simulated attack on a fortified position by the 1st Bn., 6th Marines. Driving planes, flame throwing tanks, and the taking of “enemy” emplacements via bazooka-flamethrower-demolition teams provided a memorable spectacle, as the terrific concussion of exploding bombs raised a high “casualty”
list among the smaller children, who were hastily carried to the rear by their parents. Actual battle films from World War II, shown to the public for the first time, were presented at the camp theater during the early part of the afternoon, and a swimming demonstration was provided by the 2nd Combat Service Group at the Area 2 pool. An hour-long parade of men and motorized equipment climaxed the program and brought to a close the second anniversary of Armed Forces Day here.

Marine Corps Week Proclaimed in North Carolina N
orth Carolina’s Governor Terry Sanford issued a statement to Maj. Philip G. McIntyre designating Nov. 9-15 as United States Marine Corps Week in the Tar Heel state. The statement was presented to McIntyre, Carolina’s Marine recruiting officer with headquarters at Raleigh, in Cops 188th anniversary. The eighth-trumpet chime system overlooking the city of Raleigh from the insurance building will also be used to pay special tribute with the playing of the Marine Hymn three times daily during Marine Corps Week. In designating Marine Corps Week in North Carolina, Gov.
Sanford paid special tribute to the many Tar Heels, who, while serving as Marines, gave their lives to protect America’s heritage of freedom for all. The governor, a military veteran in his own right, said Marines have been building a reputation for gallantry since the first Corps of Marines was created by an act of the Congressional Congress in Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 10, 1775. The governor added: “In this age of intercontinental ballistic missiles and satellites, our Marine Corps, as America’s Force-inReadiness, has a great obligation today than ever before to assist in the preservation of a world united in peace.
Gov. Terry Sanford issues a statement to Maj. Philip G. McIntyre, Carolina’s Marine recruiting officer, designating Nov. 9-15 as U.S. Marine Corps Week in North Carolina.

24th MEU Marines return from SP-MAGTF Crisis Response deployment
24th Marine Expeditionary Unit
contingent of Marines f r o m the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit returned from a deployment with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response, Jan. 30 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Dozens of 24th MEU Marines and sailors comprised the Command Element of SP-MAGTF Crisis Response from July to January, including the 24th MEU commander and sergeant major. The crisis response unit was created early last year to respond to a range of crises to protect both U.S. and partner-nation security interests in the region and strengthen partnerships throughout the U.S. European Command and U.S. Africa Command areas of responsibility. Now that the 24th MEU command element has re-consolidated into a force of approximately 200 Marines and sailors, they are looking forward to compositing with their subordinate elements in the coming months into a force of 2,500 personnel to prepare for their scheduled deployment at the end of the year.

Sergeants and Corporals: Sgt. Maj. Barrett and I have now spoken to the majority of you about our efforts to “Reawaken the Soul of our Corps.” Each time that we have talked with you, we come away with a strong belief that you “get it.” You understand that our renewed focus on the four enduring principles of: discipline; adherence to standards; engaged and concerned leadership (24/7); and faithful obedience to orders, is key to resetting the Corps and getting ready for tomorrow’s fight. You understand that those four principles define what we have called “The Soul of the Corps.” They have been with us for over 238 years ... it’s always been that way. As we complete the mission in Afghanistan, it’s critical to understand that there will be no “peace dividend” for America’s Marines ... there will be no operational pause for us. The world that we will live and operate in over the next two decades
will be a dangerous one; there will be plenty of work for those who wear our cloth. As we have travelled throughout our Corps, many of you have let us know how important your identity as a Marine is to you and the Marines you lead. I can’t tell you how many times we have been asked the persistent question “Commandant, are we ever going to return to sleeves up?” I’ve thought a lot about this over the past two and one-half years; I realize that it’s important to you. Sleeves up clearly and visually sets us apart. We hear you Marines! Because of the persistence of you, my sergeants and corporals, this evening I am publishing a MARADMIN that will return us to sleeves up status when wearing our desert cammies in non-combat areas. This will take effect March 9 when we transition to our summer warmer weather uniforms. Get the word out Marines. Thank you for your leadership in some very challenging times. Semper Fidelis.

Service members simulate deployed environment Cpl. Devin Nichols 2nd Marine Logistics Group
Approximately 50 service members with Alpha Surgical Company, 2nd Medical Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, participated in a field exercise at Landing Zone Canary aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Feb. 18 - 20. Sailors with the battalion simulated patients going through the shock trauma platoon and a Forward Resuscitative Surgical System. During this training evolution, those sailors took junior corpsmen under their wing and oversaw practical application of training which simulated a deployed environment. “The way we are simulating (this training evolution) is by a medical evacu-
ation helicopter landing and dropping patients off to an ambulance to take them behind our facility,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Scott T. Barrett, the operations chief for Alpha Surgical Co., 2nd Med. Bn., 2nd MLG. “They will pull the patients out of the vehicle and do another patient search for weapons. Then they go to the STP and look for any stabilizations or immediate interventions that are needed. “Critical patients will immediately go into the surgical room or FRSS. Once we have the patients in a stabilized condition they will be transferred into a holding tent awaiting a medical evacuation to a hospital with a higher surgical level.” Experienced sailors instructed many classes, such as field X-rays, FRSS standing operating procedures,
‘The Marines have landed’ at Davis center Lance Cpl. Dalton Precht 2nd Marine Division
Marines and sailors with Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, took part in cleaning up the Davis Community Assisted Living and Rehabilitation Center, Feb. 14, after a winter-weather storm left several tree branches and debris across the grounds. The cleanup effort was a Single Marine Program volunteering event to help the local community get back on its feet after the damaging effects of the winter-weather storm. Approximately 40 Marines and sailors volunteered their time to a generation that came before them. Volunteers picked up tree branches scattered across the grounds and had the opportunity to talk to veterans, who reside in the community center, about their experiences in the military. This gave service members a chance to relate to the veterans, and for one another to see how the military has evolved over the years. Tom Kerns, a combat engineer who served with the 1340th Combat Engineer Battalion during World War II, said it was nice of the service members to help with the cleanup of the grounds. The Davis center has approximately 340 beds for its occupants and 500 employees within its own little community, said Julie Rehder, the marketing and community relations administrator for the center. “We are so excited to have the Marines and sailors here today to help clean up after the ice storm, and are thankful for volunteering their time and energy,” said Rehder. “It would have been tough on our grounds keepers to clean up all the debris without the help of the service members today.” Pvt. Jhamal Turner, an administrative specialist with Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, who works in the division’s administrative section, spoke with a retired service member and said it was a different kind of conversation than you would have with someone who didn’t serve, and there was a mutual respect for one another. Turner participated in the general clean up of fallen branches, and also took a guided tour of the 54 acre plot the Davis community sits on. “Having the opportunity to give back to the people in the community and show them how the Marines can be a helpful asset is a good feeling,” said Turner. Turner also said he enjoyed his time volunteering at the assisted living center, and he wouldn’t hesitate to do it again under the same circumstances. “It’s a good feeling to actually get out and help people in need, and I would gladly come back again,” said Turner.
life-saving medical care, and walked through the step-bystep procedure in which a patient flows through the medical treatment. The command operating center located in another tent tracks the 9-lines, which is the way communication is given to request a medical evacuation, patient movement throughout the facility and coordinates a final 9-line to get the patient medically evacuated. “We have a lot of strong corpsmen out here (who are getting quality training) out of this, because we are using our real world personal experience (to instruct them),” said Barrett. After many classes, walk-throughs and dry
runs, the corpsmen conducted a practical application on what they learned from their senior corpsmen and leadership. “I have learned an incredible amount on how 2nd Medical Battalion operates,” said Seaman Dustin M. Vanhook, a corpsman with Alpha Surgical Co., 2nd Med. Bn., 2nd MLG. “A lot of the guys who just came back from Afghanistan are great. They were working in these types of facilities, and they are very knowledgeable. It’s wonderful to be able to ask them questions about situations.” Several companies within 2nd Med. Bn. have recently returned from Afghanistan.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
ore than 50 members of the North C a r o lina Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors toured training facilities aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Monday. Attendees met at the Paradise Point Officer’s Club, where they dined with Col. James Clark, the deputy commander of Marine Corps Installations East - Camp Lejeune and Col. Brent W. Bien, director for Government and External Relations / assistant chief of staff of G-7. Farming and defense are two of North Carolina’s top industries, said Chester Lowder, who works with public policy with the Farm Bureau. Lowder said visiting the base provided an opportunity for members who may not be familiar with the military, the ability to experience firsthand the military’s impact in North Carolina. “We understand the important economic impact military installations, particularly Camp Lejeune, have on the economy of North Carolina, so we wanted to visit,” said Larry Wooten, the president of the North Carolina
Farm Bureau. “Some of our members have lived in North Carolina their entire lives but have never been on a military installation.” The Farm Bureau is North Carolina’s largest general farm organization. It is a private nonprofit organization that advocates for rural and agriculture issues. During their visit, they viewed demonstrations of the HMMWV Egress Assistance Trainer, convoy trainer and a driving simulator at the simulator integration center. “After all the briefs and demonstrations were concluded, the group had a better understanding and appreciation of the facility,” said Fernando Schiefelbein, operations specialist for Marine Corps Installation East. “Not only of the training conducted, but on the expertise the training support staff has to have in order to safely train the amount of Marines that cycle through these simulators.” They also visited the Military Operations on Urban Terrain Facility, where they learned about the training conducted there. “We’re very appreciative to be here,” said Wooten. “We look forward to learning about some of the training that goes on. We want to see what goes into making Marines combat ready.”
Sgt. Maj. Timothy R. Weber retired with 24 years of service and relinquished his command as director of the Staff Noncommissioned Officer Academy, to Sgt. Maj. Timothy P. Haney, during a change of directors and retirement ceremony, aboard Camp Johnson, Feb. 21. “Being the director here at the Staff Noncommissioned Officer Academy was the best thing for me and my career, and I am confident in the new leadership that Sgt. Maj. Haney will provide as the director,” said Weber. During the ceremony, Weber reflected on his service and the Marines he served with who continue to show the warrior spirit and the meaning of brotherhood. “My units lost a lot of Marines throughout the deployments, but despite all the loses, these kids turned right back around, sometimes the only survivors in their squad and said, ‘I’m going back outside the wire,’ and there is nothing more motivating than that,” said Weber.

Sgt. Maj. Timothy Weber addresses his audience during the change of directorship and retirement ceremony aboard Camp Johnson, Feb. 21. Weber thanked family, friends and influential people that have supported him throughout his 24 years of service. Continuous self-improvement and leading Marines was always a priority throughout his career, explained Weber. Weber earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a master’s degree in Leadership and Business Ethics while on active duty. Weber’s deployments included the Persian Gulf, Mediterranean Sea, Norway, Nova Scotia, Afghanistan, Japan and Iraq. His personal awards include a Meritorious Service Medal (second
award), Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device (third award) and a combat action ribbon (second award). Haney, who previously served with 2nd Battalion, 11th Marines, strives to lend the Marines of the SNOA at his new position as director. “Sergeant Major Weber has done an outstanding job here, and I hope to continue his success and help influence Marines and this academy,” said Haney.

First ‘Super’ Supply Creation of a Military City By: Sgt. Tom Griggs Chief Course Developed At MCSS Fifteen senior Marines have been selected by Headquarters Marine Corps to attend the Corps’ first “super” Supply Chief ’s school at Camp Lejeune. Developed by the Marine Corps Base Supply School staff at Montford Point upon the request of Headquarters Marine Corps, the new senior supply chief ’s course will make no attempt to teach basic accounting and other detailed procedural methods. The course is designed to provide a broad base of understanding in all matters of supply and services with emphasis on the interrelationships between such functions and the part played by the senior supply NCO in executing his supervisory and coordinating responsibilities. While lecture and demonstration will continue as a significant part of this course, seminar and panel type discussions will be used extensively. Col. Richard Quigicy, commanding officer of the Marine Corps Supply Schools here, stated this is an entirely new course, designed to
provide senior supply NCOs with an understanding of the entire Marine Corps Supply System and its operation. The first class is scheduled to begin April 17 and will last seven weeks. Headquarters Marine Corps chose these NCOs to attend the first class:

The search began early during World War II. Sites were considered from Maine to Florida. America needed an East coast facility to train Marines and a selection board finally picked an area along New River. Later, it was named Camp Lejeune. It progressed a long way from the tent city at Camp Geiger in 1940, followed by construction at mainside in 1941, to the present-day Marine facility. Camp Lejeune is now one of the largest industries in eastern North Carolina. It can be compared to a city. The Marine Corps Base provides its citizens with maintenance, fire protection, water purification police protection, housing, recreational activities and other services. There are three major commands responsible for housing, training facilities, specialized schools and logistical support for the Fleet Marine Force units aboard Marine Corps base. Those Fleet units make up the other two commands - 2nd. Marine Division and Force Troops. Together, the three are termed the “TriCommand,” and when combined, they support a normal military strength of about 40,000. The Camp Lejeune “family” is actually 81,000 strong with the addition of dependents, civilian employees and retired
military personnel and their dependents living in this area. To be specific, military dependents living on and off the base usually number more than 31,000. Approximately 4,000 civilians are employed by the base, and the surrounding communities have become “home of record” for 10,000 members of retired military families. Summer brings the reserves and more numbers. Anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 reservists conduct annual training here. In addition, thousands of visitors stop for a look at the “world’s most complete amphibious training base.” All the servicemen, dependents and employees work and live in 6,000 buildings and 4,400 family housing units. These are accessible by the 178 miles of paved roads and more than 50 miles of sidewalks. People, structures and avenues- is there enough room to turn around? Plenty. The entire military reservation covers 170 square miles, or 110,000 acres. If you are to jog around the perimeter, it will be a 68-mile trot. Along the way, you’ll pass 14 miles of oceanfront, paralleled by the Intracoastal Waterway. Eighty-one thousand people enter and exit 10,400 structures and cram 228 miles to streets and sidewalks. How about that?

Devilfish Splash to Third Place T By: Cpl. Marlo Palacios
he Camp Devilfish “B” class swimmers turned in a third place showing in the twoday Junior Olympic State Preliminary Swim Meet held last weekend at the Area 5 pool. Competing in the swim meet were 310 aquatic enthusiasts from throughout the eastern part of North Carolina. Pool action began Friday afternoon
before a large crowd of parents, Marines and other swimming fans cheering for their teams. It was an early start for the swimmers the following day as they were ready to take their starting marks at 9 a.m. Close to 49 events remained from the original 72. Races slated were the breaststroke, freestyle, backstroke, individual medleys, butterfly
and medley relays. Shannon Whaley was the outstanding Devilfish swimmer. The 14 year-old moved with the grace of a mermaid to capture three first places and two second places. Her winning times were 29:5 in the 50-yard freestyle, 1:15.2 in the 100-yard backstroke and 1:24.9 in the 100-yard breaststroke. Sharing honors with Whaley was Terry Warren. The 15-year-old Devilfish competitor placed first in the 100 yd. backstroke and the 200 yd. individual medley. Her times were 1:13.0 and 2:40.6 respectively. Warren also took two second places. After points were tallied, the top three finishers were Fort Bragg - 524, Raleigh Swim Association - 457 and the Camp
Lejeune Devilfish - 409. All swimmers were competing for a berth in the State Championships scheduled May 16-18 at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. The State Meet is open to only “A” class swimmers and the top 3 qualifier in each event of this meet. The “A” class qualifiers are Kevin House, Jim McNeive, Any Pratt, mary Pratt, Ann Leva, Brian Zelles and Paul Greenwood. Ten “B” class Devilfish swimmers qualified for the State meet. They are: Shannon Whaley, Terry Warren, Bill Slough, Ray Candalaria, Cathy Brown, Happy Strothers, Kara Floan, Tom Pratt, Amelia Rivers and Veronica Danko.

encing has long been viewed as a sport of the elite, but with influences like Robin Hood, Luke Skywalker and Zorro, it’s no wonder youths and adults of all ages are taking an interest. The unique uniforms and equipment are enough to draw the attention of even the most apathetic of people. Beginning March 7, Cape Fear Fencing Association will host eight-session fencing classes at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The class will be lead by internationally accredited head coach at CFFA, Gregory Spahr. According to Nichole Melewiski, fencing participant, the class is not only challenging, but fun. “I started because of my sister, who does fencing also. The class is fun, and it’s a good way to make friends,” said Melewiski. Besides being fun, fencing offers many benefits to its practitioners. Fencers learn good sportsmanship, self-discipline and how to compete independently, according to Columbia University. They also acquire a sense of accomplishment when winning and learn to profit from their defeats. They learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems and think fast on their feet. see fencing 4b

Posterior chain,essential to running Focus on
Fitness with Desiree Nelson
hen someone says you need to hit the gym and begin working on your strength training to improve your running speed, you could be forgiven for remarking that muscle bound weight lifters are not much in evidence at running events, and you’d likely be right. However, the goal here is not to increase your mass, but strengthen your “motor,” which in turn can increase your running speed. If you enhance the size of a motor in a car it will go faster. The same is true for your body. The “motor” for us is what is called the posterior chain. This is the collection of muscles at the back of the body including the hamstrings, glutes and calves. According to the American Council on Exercise, speed and endurance when running are both dependent upon the PC, and strengthening these will markedly improve your performance. In contrast, ignoring the PC will limit your ability to improve your speed and possibly result in an incorrect running technique. While many would think your quads are the muscle most responsible for sprinting speed, it is actually the glutes that are the real powerhouse. If you’ve ever seen a 100-meter race, you’ll notice just how big the glutes on some of the sprinters are. Three exercises that target the PC are deadlifts, lunges and glute bridges. All
three of these maneuvers have modifications and variations, making them suitable for beginners and seasoned athletes alike. The deadlift is basically lifting a barbell from the ground to a standing position. However, no other exercise works the PC more. There are numerous variations to increase how much the posterior chain is activated including Romanian deadlifts, stiff leg deadlifts and sumo deadlifts. Lunges are excellent for the PC, because they are a compound exercise that targets the glutes. Lunge variations can be done using dumbbells or a barbell; walking or remaining on the spot; with one leg elevated; lunging to the front or rear; explosively or slow and controlled. Finally, glute bridges; a more uncommon exercise, is a fantastic way to strengthen and build the glutes, not only improving speed but reducing the risk of lower back pain. This exercise can be done with one leg at a time or in between two benches so you can lower yourself further down and increase the range of motion. Weights can also be included for added resistance. Add these exercises into your routine if you’re looking to increase your running speed. Whether you’re a sprinter, endurance runner or just looking to ace the PFT, a stronger posterior chain will equate to a more powerful stride.
Quick Health Tips Go veggie: Next time you’re craving fast food, try ordering a veggie burger. It is a tasty vegetable patty with all the burger trimmings, loaded with vegetables, whole grains and typically has about 320 calories. Find a fitness friend: A workout buddy is helpful for motivation, but it’s important to find someone who will inspire—not discourage. So make a list of all your exercise-loving friends and see whose workouts will motivate you. Stock up on these: Balsamic vinegar (adds a pop of low-calorie flavor to veggies and salads), in-shell nuts (their protein and fiber keep you satiated) and fat-free plain yogurt (a creamy, comforting source of protein).

moves to a stronger stride 1
Deadlifts To complete this exercise, hold the barbell (palms in), keeping your arms straight and knees slightly bent. Slowly bend at your hip joint, not your waist, and lower the weights as far as possible without rounding your back, which should remain straight. Make sure you keep your spine neutral with a natural low-back arch, with shoulders down. Looking forward, not at the ground, will help you avoid rounding your back. Keep the barbell close to your legs, almost touching them. Squeeze your glutes to pull yourself up at a quicker pace than it took to bend down. Don’t use your back and do not round your spine. Use a weight that allows you to do three sets of 12 to 15 reps, with correct form, before fatiguing your muscles.

Dallas Mavericks three-point record
March 5, 1996, Dallas Mavericks set NBA record by attempting 49 three-point shots in the game – George McCloud had 20 attempts himself and hit for an NBA record 7.
It’s important to do lunges properly so you don’t put unwanted strain on your joints. Here’s how to perfect your form: Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back, relaxed and chin up (pick a point to stare at in front of you so you don’t keep looking down). Always engage your core. Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle, not pushed out too far, and make sure your other knee doesn’t touch the floor. Keep the weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. Add dumbells to create resistance and build more strength.
For more information about MCB Camp Lejeune weather or other locations, visit www.weather.com.
Weighted glute bridges Lie down with back on an exercise mat and arms straight at your sides. Next, place a weight plate on your hips and hold in place with your hands. Place feet flat on the floor about a foot away from your buttocks (as close to your butt as is comfortable). This is the starting position. Next, begin exercise by squeezing your glutes and raising hips up until your body forms a straight line from your knees to your shoulders. Hold for at least 5 seconds, lower back down. Repeat as necessary. Looking to change things up? Incorporate a bench and do heightened bridges or replace the weight plate with a weighted dumbbell.
Posterior Chain Pointers • The hamstrings are constructed with a high percentage of fast-twitch muscle fibers, so they must be trained with heavier weight and lower reps. • Most endurance athletes will have to work the posterior chain harder initially to overcome the muscle imbalance caused by strong, powerful quads. • These workouts should be done ine to two times a week depending on your training/race schedule.

Fitness, fun unite at Zumba Pink Party Desiree Nelson Sports editor
More than 40 patrons, donning pink fitness gear, were working up a sweat while grooving to the music, during the Zumba Pink Party at Tarawa Terrace Community Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Friday. Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin music and easy-to-follow dance moves. Routines incorporate interval training, alternating fast and slow rhythms and resistance training. â€œ(The) Zumba Pink Party is a fitness event that encourages cardiovascular endurance for 90-minutes â€“ which is equivalent to long distance running and cycling events â€“ catered to patrons who may not be runners or cyclist but still want to challenge their fitness levels,â€? said Cynthia Feliciano, Aerobics and Fitness Association of America certified group exercise instructor and licensed Zumba instructor. Zumba has quickly grown to one of the most popular group exercise classes on the planet. In fact, the Latin-dance inspired workout is reportedly per-
formed by more than 12 million people at 110,000 sites, in 125 countries around the world, according to the American Council on Exercise. Besides being widely popular, Zumba is physically, socially and emotionally beneficial. A typical 60-minute class provides a dynamic warm up to stimulate all the major muscle groups, joints and ligaments, while gradually raising the heart rate above resting levels, increasing muscular and cardiorespiratory endurance, according to Mayoclinic.org. Zumba classes incorporate a steady state or interval cardio vascular workout that may include upper and lower body muscle endurance exercises such as squats, lunges, overhead press and biceps curls, allowing participants to burn from 500 to 800 calories per class. â€œIndividuals can adjust their Zumba workouts by controlling their intensity and impact, making Zumba a workout for all fitness levels,â€? added Feliciano. In addition, the easy to follow movements have a predictable pattern that stimulates brain plasticity for a neuromuscular benefit, which has been

"I'm working out, but it's more like I'm just hanging out with friends, having a good time and dancing." Socially, Zumba offers participants a way to enjoy a fun, party atmosphere with others who have similar interests, such as dance and living a healthy lifestyle. â€œTypically, there are many groups of patrons who make it a regular "date" to attend Zumba classes because of the party atmosphere in a safe environment that can be only achieved in a Zumba class,â€? said Feliciano. â€œZumba is a party where the patrons can release physical and emotional stress while potentially making new friends.â€? In addition, Zumba enables patrons to feel empowered through positive experiences of physical exercise. A fit lifestyle can be challenging to begin for individuals who have negative feelings about exercise and weight management, according to Feliciano. Zumba is an effective means to bridge the gap between a party and a workout where patrons can live a fit lifestyle of regular exercise without feeling the stress or burden that is associated with traditional exercise. The Zumba fitness craze is said to have started as a mistake by Colombian trainer Alberto Perez, according to the American Council on Exercise. One day in the mid-90s, Perez
reportedly forgot to bring his regular aerobics-style music to the group class he was instructing. With no music and a class to teach, Perez raced back to his car and scrounged up a cassette tape of Latin dance music and Zumba was born; although the name was not coined until 1999. â€œPeople are attracted to Zumba because its fun. When you do something that is enjoyable it is immediately addicting. Fun doesn't necessarily mean easy. Zumba is challenging, but most people enjoy a challenge because they can see noticeable results and feel accomplished,â€? said Feliciano. â€œA newcomer to Zumba may enjoy the atmosphere of Zumba or feel intimidated because essentially they are crashing a party and don't know the moves. However, once people realize that there is no competition in class but an opportunity to enjoy the energy of people who are collectively having a great time, its instantly addicting.â€? At Marine Corps Community Services, the age range for Zumba is 13-years- old and over. There are other programs available for kids ages 5 to 12, that incorporate music and dance moves for younger patrons. Tarawa Terrace Fitness Center offers Zumba classes Monday through Saturday at various times. Wallace Creek Fitness Center offers the class Monday through Friday, also at varying times. For more information and for specific class times, call 450-1681, 450-7649 or visit www. mccslejeune.com/groupexercise.
4b february 27, 2014 Fencing from 1b The sport encourages physical fitness, as a great deal of physical exertion is necessary to perform the lunges and footwork that play such a vital role in the sport. It has also been shown to increase flexibility, coordination, agility, balance, strength, cardiovascular endurance and heighten reflexes. “It used to be called physical chess, but for this generation, I tell them it is a real time video game with physical consequences,” said Spahr. “Fencers learn how to evaluate situations and make split second decisions.” In addition, fencing has been shown to increase focus in children and adults, especially those suffering from ADD and ADHD, according to the Standford University. As of recently, educators have even begun to see a correlation between the sport and increased mathematical skills. According to the Safety and Technology Committee for the U.S. Fencing Association, dueling with any one of the three types of fencing swords, whether the lightweight foil, the epee or the thrashing saber, can actually improve math skills, because fencing improves a perception of geometric shapes, as one literally “draws” in the air with the sword encouraging a type of “if/then” logic. The class is separated into beginner and intermediate, with additional time allowed for open fencing. “Participants in the class can expect to learn the history of the sport, basic footwork, how to attack and defend, the rules for the sport, how to judge and referee,” said Spahr. “The class will end with a tournament played on electrical equipment.” Electrical weapons are used in almost all competitions today. The fencer is hooked into a scoring machine which will light up when the fencer hits the desired target with their sword. In foil and epee you must hit with the point as to push the button at the tip of the sword. Charting its origins to 18th-century France, competitive fencing offered participants a chance to duel it out without actually killing one another. The sport was synonymous with European aristocracy. Most matches were refereed in French and in the United States it was predominantly taught in elite schools, until recently. “Fencing is on an upswing in this country,” said Gregory Spahr. “Fencing memberships in the U.S. jumped by 60 percent last season. Most of the
The Globe, Camp Lejeune, N.C.
fencers in the US are now under the age of 16 and the U.S. is moving up as far as being a fencing power.” In the 2008 Olympics, the U.S. took the most fencing medals behind Italy. In the fall of 2013, Miles ChalmleyWatson became the first American man to win the World Fencing Championship and just this year the Atlantic Coast Conference reinstituted their fencing championship. Despite many misconceptions, fencing is not a dangerous sport. In fact, according to a 2004 study performed by the National Cellegiate Association, the closest sport to fencing, in terms of injuries, is golf. According to Spahr, fencing is appropriate for kids as young as 7 and adults of all ages. There have even been students in their mid-nineties, notes Sphar. “Fencing has a rich tradition and a history of sportsmanship,” said Spahr. “It’s a sport in which you can participate your entire life. And, it’s fun.” The cost of the class is $40 per individual for each eight-session class. A USA Fencing membership is also required, costing $5 per person. Equipment is provided.

Did you know...? • The tip of the fencing weapon is the second fastest moving object in sport after the marksman’s bullet. • Fencing suits are white, because in earlier times, touching was recorded with a piece of cotton at the tip of the weapon dripped in ink. • Many ballet positions are derived from fencing. • Fencing as a sport goes back to as early as 1200 A.D • Fencing has been included in every Olympics since 1898.

arines competing in track and field have made history breaking records in both the Olympics and country-wide championships. Since the first All-Marine Corps track and field meet in 1948, athletes have set records for others to shatter aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and competed for one of three spots on Olympic teams. Following the end of World War II, Gen. Clifton B. Cates, the 19th commandant of the Marine Corps, devised the All-Marine track and field meet as an opportunity for Marines to compete and represent their units in the sport. Since Aug. 20, 1948, Marines across the country have gathered to partici-
pate in the track and field meet, which eventually became a three-day event. During the sixth annual All-Marine meet aboard Camp Lejeune in 1953, an onslaught of 105 athletes competed, proving that age-old records are made to be broken, shattering 11 records. All-Marine record holder, Bill Miller continued to claim his title as he hurled the javelin a distance of 232 feet, breaking his own 1952 track and field meet record of 210 feet. Miller also won the high jump with his leap of six feet and four inches and ran on a record setting 440-yard and one-mile relay team. With Millerâ€™s athletic record-breaking achievements during the meet, Miller received the Most Outstanding Athlete Award. While Miller competed to break his own record aboard Camp Lejeune, he experienced the opportunity to compete with the 1952 Olympic team. see track 6B

Track from 5b Four years later, the 1956 Summer Olympics provided Marines the opportunity once again to compete for a spot on the Olympic team. A maximum of three athletes from any country had the chance to compete in the track and field event at the Olympics, according to teamusa.org. John Culbreath, three-time U.S. Outdoor National Championship title holder in the 400-meter hurdles from 1953 to 1955, enlisted in the Marine Corps, according to www.mca-marines.org, despite the fear his time in boot camp would eliminate his chances of making the 1956 Olympic team. He continued his Olympic training efforts, after arriv-
ing at Parris Island March 1, 1956. Months later, Culbreath competed at the Olympic trials, receiving the third spot in his specialty, the 400-meter hurdles. During the Summer Olympics, he received the bronze medal in Italy. A year later he broke the world record in Norway, expressing his pride at making the accomplishments as a Marine, according to www.mca-marines.org. Marines continued to make their presence known on the track and field from the 1960s to the 1970s, as many top athletes continued to enlist. In 1964, Billy Mills achieved the official title as the Olympic 10,000-me-
ter champion, and the only American to ever win in the event. He became an Olympic icon and his gold medal victory as a Marine became known world-wide. With the looming Vietnam War in 1966, the Marine Corps began to downsize track and field teams due to the growing need of service members in Vietnam. With the winding down of the track and field presence within the Marine Corps, fewer athletes joined, according to www. mca-marines.org. It wasn’t until 1972, when the running boom exploded across the country, causing marathons to grow in popularity with the public’s recogni-
tion of the public emphasis on health, fitness and long distance running, the Marine Corps created the Marine Corps Marathon in 1976. Today, the Marine Corps Marathon is the third largest U.S. marathon and ninth in the world, it is also the largest marathon that doesn’t offer prize money. Throughout the years, the Marine Corps has began to shift focus back toward track and field. The start of the All-Marine Warrior Games Track and Field team, as well as the Marine Corps Trials Track and Field competitions, have continued to demonstrate the Marine Corps’ commitment to tradition, as well as physical fitness and the importance of elite runners.

Womenâ€™s Sports Series brings friendly competition Desiree Nelson Sports editor
â€œIâ€™m glad weâ€™re doing this,â€? said Jennifer Figueroa, â€œItâ€™s fun and gets us playing as a team, building camaraderie and lasting friendships.â€? Figueroa, a member of Studis FC, competed in the Womenâ€™s Double Elimination Indoor Soccer Tournament alongside four other teams; Harvest, The Riveters, 2nd Maintenence Battalion and the Honey Badgers, at Goettge Memorial Field House, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Saturday. The tournament was the first event in the 2014 Womenâ€™s Sport Series. The Honey Badgers finished first overall, defeating Harvest in the final match-up, 3-0. According to Nichole Turner, sports specialist and athletic program coordinator, the ultimate goal of the Womenâ€™s Sport Series is to provide the women of Camp Lejeune with an opportunity to compete in an fun atmosphere while promoting healthy habits, camaraderie and friendly competition. In addition to the Womenâ€™s Double Elimination Indoor Soccer Tournament, the 2014 Womenâ€™s Sports Series includes a volleyball tournament, summer softball league, kickball tournament and the Powder Puff Tournament in the fall. According to Turner, the series is for everyone, even if theyâ€™ve never participated in sports. â€œSome of our participants are first time ever athletes, some have never picked up a bat or thrown a ball before participating in our programs,â€? said Turner. â€œWe want all participants to enjoy the experience and have fun.â€? According to the Womenâ€™s Sport Foundation, females who participate in team sports have higher levels of confidence and self-esteem and lower levels of depression. In addition, women who play sports have a more positive body image and experience higher states of psychological well-being than women who do not.
â€œUltimately, we want the ladies to feel empowered, make some new friends and enjoy their time together in friendly competition,â€? said Turner. Females age 18 or older and out of high school are eligible to participate in the Womenâ€™s Sport Series. This includes active-duty, spouses, eligible family members, Department of Defense and Marine Corps
Community Services employees aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. Unless stated otherwise, all Intramural programs are free of charge to participants. Major equipment is provided for each sport and uniforms are available for use.

he temperatures soared into the 60s, but more than two tons of snow fell at the Snow Up The Park event to aid the sledding and wintery fun shared by the attendees, Friday. The event was held at the Swansboro Municipal Park and consisted of three snowfilled sledding slopes, a play area filled with snow, food vendors, live DJ, arts and crafts and winter survival techniques taught by park rangers from the Hammocks Beach State Park. Children of all ages played in the snow and received the opportunity to get their face painted. Sledding cost $5 for each participant, but the rest of the event was free, said Anna Stanley, program supervisor for Swansboro Parks and Recreation Department. She added, there was a goal of 1,000 attendees and the expectation was met and exceeded. “We designed it to be free or as low cost as

possible to ensure maximum participation,” said Stanley. “January and February are our slow months, with not many programs or events, so we scheduled this to keep the community active. We definitely plan to make this an annual event so it will give everyone something to look forward to year (after) year.” “The event was sparked when New Bern had one and Swansboro immediately knew we had to have one,” said Stanley. “It’s something this area has never seen before, so we thought it was a great idea. The area doesn’t normally get snow like we have recently, so it’s a great new experience for people who don’t get to see snow very often.” David Culver, event attendee and former Marine, said he moved from the North where he was accustomed to the snow, but this event is great for Marines and their families new to the area, because snow
is scarce in most Southern states. “We stayed in the area after I retired, because the community puts together such great events like this,” said Culver. “These give everyone a great way to get in touch with the rest of the community, and have some fun while you do it.” Dozens of volunteers were hard at work during the event which made it possible to keep the event very low cost. “The snow is great; where else can you get it and also have 70 degree weather at the same time?” said Chief Warrant Officer 2, Benjamin Barron, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense officer for 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Division. “We came out with our entire church to volunteer and give back to the community,” said Barron. “I think more military families should come out to events like this. It’s a great place to network and let their kids get active outside of the house.” For more information on Swansboro Parks and Recreation events, visit www.SwansboroNC.org.

‘Her’ a heart-wrenching sci-fi romance; ‘About Last Night’ a hysterical comedy Now playing at Camp Lejeune and Midway Park “HER” (R) “Her” is a fantasy and romantic film about a writer who develops a crush on his new smartphone. The film centers on a lonely and brokenhearted man who, in the near future, develops a relationship with his highly advanced recording device. Joaquin Phoenix (“Walk the Line,” “Reservation Road,”, “The Master”) stars as Theodore Twombly, a writer whose job is to write heartfelt and personal letters to complete strangers. Depressed after a failed relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Catherine, played by Rooney Mara (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”), he finds a new lease on life when he develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system designed to meet his every need. Upon initiating the new device, he meets ‘Samantha,’ the bright and funny female voice behind the smartphone operating system. Scarlett Johansson (“Don Jon,” “The Avengers”) lends her voice to Samantha, the artificial intelligence be-
hind the computer, who beguiles him with her smooth, sexy and alluring voice. As she takes on a female personality, their friendship grows, and it soon becomes apparent they are falling in love with each other, which begins a complex relationship. Amy Adams (“American Hustle”) co-stars as Amy, Theodore’s neighbor, who is also his close friend and confidante. Also starring are Olivia Wilde (“Rush”) as a blind date of Theodore; Chris Pratt (“Delivery Man”) as Paul; Kristin Wiig (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) as Sexy Kitten; and Bill Hader (“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2”) as a chat room friend. Spike Jonze (“Where the Wild Things Are,” Adaptation,” “Being John Malkovich”) directed, produced and wrote the very original screenplay for this smart and soulful study of humanity’s ever-growing love affair with technology. He also put together a terrific ensemble cast. Phoenix proves again he is a very capable and talented actor who delivers a very gentle and disarming performance in creating great chemistry with an invisible person. “Her” is a clever and emotional techno-fantasy, an intensely moving and heart-wrenching sci-fi romance and sweet

comedy. This very poignant love story is intoxicating and has been noticed during this award season. Now playing at Carmike 16 and Patriot Theater 12 in Jacksonville “ABOUT LAST NIGHT” (R) “About Last Night” is a romantic comedy about two couples in today’s dating scene. According to Sony Pictures, this movie is “a modern reimagining of the classic romantic comedy.” This contemporary version closely follows a new love for two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world.

Heritage Dinner Dance honors Montford Point Marines Lance Cpl. Jackeline M. Perez Rivera Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune
The legacy of the 20,000 service members who overcame discrimination to train at Montford Point was honored with stirring speeches during the 26th annual Heritage Dinner Dance at the Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Saturday. More than 200 guests, including Montford Point Marines Turner G. Blount, F.M. Hooper, Norman Preston and James B. Wilson attended the event where a memorial was presented as tribute to their history and service. Other prominent guests at the sold-out event included Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Bailey, the first African-American to take command of the 1st Marine Division, and retired Maj. James Capers Jr., Silver Star recipient. “This is Black History Month,” said Bailey, who now serves as the deputy commandant for Plans, Policies and Operations at Headquarters Marine Corps, and served as the guest speaker at the event.“I find it fitting that the Montford Point Marine Association Chapter 10 uses this as an opportunity to celebrate. There is no better way to celebrate and recognize the month, than by honoring the heroes of Montford Point and one of our Vietnam heroes Mr. Capers.” While reflecting on Black History Month, it’s important to look at it as a month of unity, added Bailey. “It’s not just black history, it is American history,” said Bailey. “It’s all of our history and our culture.” He noted many of today’s top Marine leaders are minorities who have gained the opportunity due in part to the Montford Point Marines’ trailblazing spirit. “When you look back at what happened, and the time frame that it happened, you can see, appreciate and understand what their struggle was all about,” said Bailey. “You can understand the self-sacrifice.” Bailey encouraged guests to support the Montford Point Memorial Project, which seeks to create monuments in honor of Montford Point Marines at Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville, N.C. The Montford Point Marines’ story is interwoven with not only American history, but with Marine Corps history, said Alfreda Carmichael, the president of the Montford Point Marine Association Chapter 10. “We’re a product of what they went through,” said Carmichael. Today’s Marines stand on the shoulders of the thousands who wanted to protect the country, even while it was divided by

The Montford Point Marines’ legacy continues to influence Marines today. 2nd Supply Battalion shares the same mission Montford Point Marines held during World War II--providing logistical sustainment during combat, said Lt. Col. Jesse Kemp, the commanding officer of 2nd Supply Battalion. “Tonight’s theme is preserving our legacy, and I’m proud to say, through our partnership with the Montford Point Association, we are doing just that,” said Kemp. “We are adding the motto ‘Legacy of Montford Point’ to our battalion logo.” Volunteers from 2nd Supply Battalion also served as the color guard during the ceremony and built a field cross during the moment of remembrance at the conclusion of the ceremony. “We are all honored to be a part of the ceremony,” said Kemp.

This artist rendering gives an idea of what the outside of the Museum of the Marine may look like at its planned location in the Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville, N.C. The 40,000 square-foot building will house a series of themed galleries containing historical artifacts and interactive exhibits.
Museum of the Marine to honor Carolina’s firsts Ashley Torres Lifestyles editor
To commemorate decades of history and pay homeage to the service members who have gone before us, the Museum of the Marine — once only a dream — will be made a reality. The museum’s planned location is the Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville, N.C. Construction for phase one will begin the end of this year or the beginning of next year, pending the final paperwork, according to Joe Houle, Museum of the Marine director of operations. The stories of the North Carolina and South Carolina Marines, units, bases, stations and battles will be highlighted.
A non-profit organization formed off the idea of a museum in honor of Carolina’s service members, in 2003. “There is nothing in our part of the country that talks about the Marine Corps ‘firsts,’” said Houle. “Even our national museum as beautiful as it is, does not talk about the ‘firsts.’ We need a museum for the parents of our young and for the older Marines in Jacksonville, where they can learn and discover Marine Corps history.” Over the past two decades, the Museum of the Marine has raised $8 million to go toward the $28-million project, through funding from the state of North Carolina, Onslow County, the city of
Jacksonville, businesses and individuals. Money for the 40,000-square foot facility has been raised through local donations and events. “Annually, the museum has two major fundraisers, one of them being our upcoming golf tournament at the Jacksonville Country Club, called Military Heroes Golf Classic,” said Bruce Gombar, Museum of the Marine chairman of the building. “Our ongoing fundraising effort is just kicking off.” With the continued efforts of funding for the museum, the construction will take place in phases. The number of phases involved is dependent on fund raising. The first phase, a $1.5 million project, consists of the designing and landscaping of the outdoor
space including walkways, bordered with memorial bricks, according to Houle. The focal point of the large open area before the future building will include an 11-foot bronze sculpture of The Eagle, Globe and Anchor. Throughout the different phases, the Museum of the Marine will showcase the story of operating forces, their battles and accomplishments, through a series of themed galleries. Within the numerous themes, patrons will experience artifacts and interactive exhibits portraying the history of the Marine Corps. “We need to talk about the Marines who have done the work, not just the leaders, but the boots on the ground,” said Houle.
Since the dedication of Camp Lejeune in 1941, the base has become the site of numerous Marine Corps “firsts.” Following the decision of the government, Camp Lejeune was constructed to devote space to the training of the first Marine Corps division-sized unit, the 1st Marine Division. The 1st unit trained and lived aboard Camp Lejeune and conducted the first combat operation on the ground against Japan, in 1945, according to Houle. From the years 1942 to 1949, Camp Lejeune became the training site for the first African-American Marines and for the first female Marines. During World War II, 23,000 of the first female Marines served overseas, along with
13,000 of the first AfricanAmerican Marines. In addition, Camp Lejeune recently saw to the development of three major tactical innovations including amphibious operations, close air support, and vertical envelopment using helicopters. Also during the recent war on terror, the base opened the first Wounded Warrior Barracks in military history. Through the persistent fundraising efforts to reach the last $20 million, the Museum of the Marine continues to provide an opportunity for patrons to discover the Carolina Marines historical legacy.
