Two Marine fire teams rushed to reinforce several others after clearing a ridge of enemy combatants, but as one Marine ran for cover, an improvised explosive device detonated at his feet and chaos erupted. Fortunately for the squads, this combat scenario was only simulated and the IED only left the Marine dirty. Marines and sailors with Ragnarok Company, 2nd Supply Battalion, 2nd

Marine Logistics Group, participated in a basic skills course at the Battle Skills Training School, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 2 through 6. The training helped prepare the service members for winter training in Bridgeport, Calif., and the upcoming NATO exercise, Cold Response 2014, in Norway. “Once we go to Bridgeport and Norway, we’re going to be up in the mountains, so having communication between squads and fire teams is important,” said Cpl. Oscar I. Mejia, a motor vehi-

cle operator with the company. “(We need to be) looking out for each other because there’s a high risk for casualties – heat casualties, cold casualties and lack of air. We need to get that communication (ready) so we don’t mess up out there.” Throughout the weeklong course, the service members learned and reviewed a number of basic skills, including patrols, combat lifesaving, land navigation and holding entry control points at a forward operating base. The Marines and sailors also conducted 48 hours

Division Marines get a taste of ‘360’ training LANCE CPL. SCOTT WHITING 2nd Marine Division

There are many life education opportunities available to Marines, from classes on financial management to marriage enrichment courses, and leaders continuously looking for programs to help Marines improve in every facet of their lives. The USO of North Carolina, Jacksonville Center, sponsored the first Marine 360 course, Dec. 2 through 6. Marine 360 is a leadership course developed for Marines from an Army course called Soldier 360. Soldier 360 is a weeklong course covering many facets of life, including physical, mental and emotional health. The course involves engaging classes that work well with interaction from the audience. The

constant back-and-forth between service member and instructor keeps the patrons’ attention. While originally aimed at soldiers, the lessons can be applied to any branch of the military. “We built a program that looks at the whole person,” said Dr. Glen Wurglitz, a neuropsychologist who is part of the 360 team. “What we’re looking for is health, in terms of physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, spiritual, financial and sexual health.” Wurglitz stressed the week-long program is a leaders’ course, not a treatment course. The people attending may not have any issues, but could be looking for a way to better their life. He also explained everything they teach is science based, as opposed to opinions. “On day one, we explain the science of stress,

and how people can deal with it,” said Wurglitz. “The rest of the week is experiencing better selfcare. As people learn to better themselves, then they can lead others to do the same.” The course is also more than just classes. There are many different hands-on practical applications. Patrons participate in yoga, acupuncture, learn proper running technique and practice it, and they have the opportunity to experience hypnosis for therapy purposes. Sgt. Jeff Stimple, a Marine with 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, said he thoroughly enjoyed the leaders’ course. “They cover pretty much everything,” said Stimple. “Everything from (physical training) to yoga positions. We talked about how the body is affected by its environment. I’ll

probably plan a sit-down with some of my Marines and teach what I learned, and I’ll also look to apply some of these principles as I see fit.” The course is very flexible, and Wurglitz said it is tailored to each group. If participants need extra attention in a certain area, they will spend more time

there instead of moving on to the next topic. “One person who was in one of my classes told me after, ‘I learned I could be happy again,’” said Wurlgliz. “A spouse told me, ‘you gave me back the man I married.’ That’s when you know the course is effective and makes a difference.”

of combat operations against BSTS instructors. “When we get Marines here from outside of the (infantry) field, they’re going to know the basics of what to do if they get thrown into standing post or being on patrols (upon completing the course),” said Sgt. Jason B. Cox, a machine gunner with BSTS. “It gets them outside of their box of working in a shop.” Service members with the company are scheduled to participate in mental and physical training until they leave to conduct operations above the Arctic Circle.

SemperSafe Semper Safe By Derrick Mangas

Enjoy Christmas decorations, avoid safety hazards When most people think about the holidays, family festivities and good cheer likely come to mind. What few people consider is the holidays also present an increased risk of home fires and other mishaps. U.S. fire departments annually respond to an average of 250 structure fires caused by Christmas trees. Nearly half of them are caused by electrical problems, and one in four resulted from a heat source too close to the tree. By taking some preventative steps and following some of these simple tips, most home fires can be prevented. If you have an artificial tree, be sure it is labeled, certified or identified by the manufacturer as fire-retardant. If you choose a fresh tree, make sure the green needles don’t fall off when touched; before placing it in the stand, cut 1 or 2 inches from the base of the trunk. Add water to the tree

stand, and be sure to water it daily. Plan where your tree will be positioned. Do not place the tree in front of or near your exit. Try to position it near an outlet so that cords are not running long distances. Make sure your tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, space heaters, radiators, candles and heat vents or lights. Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving the house or going to bed. After Christmas, dispose of the tree properly. Dried-out trees are a fire hazard and should not be left in the home, garage, or placed outside the home. Other safety tips: Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory, and make sure you know whether they are designed for indoor or outdoor use. Replace any string of

lights with worn or broken cords, or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of push-in bulbs and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Never use staples or nails to hang light strings. Check your strands of lights to determine the maximum number of strands that may be connected. Take lights down after the holidays. Holiday lights are for temporary, seasonal use up to 90 days. Be careful with holiday decorations: Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. Keep decorations away from windows and doors. Test your smoke alarms. When entertaining guests, inform them of your home fire escape plan. Visit www.nfpa.org/holiday for more information and safety tips.

he 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit decomposited after an eight-month deployment in the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleets areas of responsibility, recently. During this stage, the MEU is afforded the opportunity to better assist and prepare its Marines and sailors in the transition from a deployed to a nondeployed environment. “Going decomposite is an important part of the process,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Bigley, of the 26th MEU operations

section and the anti-terrorism force protection chief. “It allows each unit to focus on specialized training to better support the MEU.” The reinforcements of the MEU, Battalion Landing Team 3/2, Combat Logistics Battalion 26, and Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 266 (Reinforced), come from various organizations in II Marine Expeditionary Force. Each requires different training to keep their skills current and meet annual qualifications in their specialties. Additionally, upon returning to their parent commands, they’ll share what they learned during their time with the MEU.

The decomposition, typically done shortly after a deployment, gives them time to evaluate what they did and helps prepare them for future deployments with a MEU. “Historically, the MEU would work on a six-month cycle: deploy six months, decomposite six months and do pre-deployment training for six months,” said Gunnery Sgt. Steven Hunsinger, 26th MEU logistics chief. This deployment, however, was extended to eight months in order to adapt to mission requirements in the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility. The MEU uses this down time to account for gear and provide per-

sonnel with a cool-down period after deployment, said Hunsinger. “The decomposite gives the Marines and sailors time to recover,” said Bigley. “It ultimately gives them time to evaluate what they learned with

their home units and fellow Marines, helping them better understand how a Marine Air-Ground Task Force works, preparing them for the future and improving the Marine Corps as a whole.” The MEU Command

Element is all that remains after the other elements return to their home units. The Command Element works as an extension of II MEF until it goes composite and begins preparing for its next deployment.

Marine shows strength, support from afar LANCE CPL. KRISTA JAMES Black Sea Rotational Force

eing away from family during the holidays is tough for anyone. For service members, this can be even harder due to deployments, and for some, being away from home can mean losing precious time with loved ones who are sick. Lance Cpl. Samuel Bowers, a team leader with Black Sea Rotational Force 14 (comprised of Marines from 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division), knows this struggle all too well. As Marine of the Week, Bowers has demonstrated the core values of honor, courage and commitment, including leadership abilities, hard work, determination, physical strength, and above all else, mental toughness. While deployed during the holidays, he is missing out on valuable time with his mother. Bowers admits the hardest part about being a Marine is being away from home, especially while his mother spends her first holiday battling breast cancer. Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer will claim the lives of approximately 39,620 women in 2013 alone. However, there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. at this time. Bowers’ mother, Teresa Skinner-Bowers, agrees the most challenging part of her son being a Marine is the fact he is not with the family. “I was excited, proud and terrified (when he told me he was joining the military),” said Bowers’ mother. “Excited because he’s doing something positive in his life and serving our country, and terrified that he’d lose his life in the process. That’s the hardest part about having him be a Marine, is that he can’t be a Marine at home.” “She found out in April,

Bowers is this week’s Marine of the Week for dedication to his team members and his mental and physical strength. the day after her birthday, but she waited until June to tell me. She was worried about how I would react while I was still away training for deployment,” said Bowers. “She didn’t want me focusing on home. She wanted me focusing on what I was doing.” Sgt. Nicholas Zablonski, Bowers’ squad leader, said all of Bowers’ brothers in the ground combat element are there for him when he needs them. “I think it’s difficult for him, but at the same time, he knows he can talk to anyone in the platoon, and anybody will be willing to listen and give him the opportunity to talk to his mother,” said Zablonski. “At first I was really worried my mom wouldn’t overcome it, and I wouldn’t be able to see her, and then I came to realize when she got her biopsy, it got most of the cancer out. They put her on radiation treatments a few weeks ago, and she’s been doing really well with that, so she’s almost in the

clear,” said Bowers. Zablonski said through his mental and physical strength, Bowers has exceeded what is expected of him. “I think (he) did very well in out-performing his peers, (along with) being promoted to team leader. He’s one of the few lance corporal team leaders within the ground combat element,” said Zablonski. “It’s his ability to learn and adapt. His knowledge base has grown exponentially since he’s gotten into the platoon, and I think he’s done a very good job at using that knowledge to help him to get these higher billets.” Being mentally tough for your family shows a lot about your character, which in Bowers’ case, has reflected through his mission of helping promote regional stability and security, increasing military capacity and interoperability, and being the crisiscontingency force in the Eastern European region, with BSRF-14.

Two V-22 Osprey helicopters land on the USS New York while en-route to the ship’s new home port, Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 5. The Navy is moving the USS New York in order to position the ship in a better strategic location.


USS New York changes home ports LANCE CPL. MICHAEL DYE 2nd Marine Division

San Antonio class, landing platform dock warship, the USS New York, left its first home port in Norfolk, Va., to sail south down the Atlantic coast to its new home port, Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 3 The Navy is moving the USS New York in order to position the ship in a better strategic location. Currently, Norfolk Naval Base is home to the majority of the Navy’s vessels, and by relocating some of those vessels, the Navy will improve its response time and overall readiness. “The Navy wants to

maintain at least two strategic home ports, you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket so to speak,” said Capt. Jon C. Kreitz, the commanding officer of the USS New York. “It’s not just a strategic dispersal of forces, that’s just one part of it. The other thing is to maintain the industrial base of the Mayport-Jacksonville area.” Around 80 Marines from Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, were bussed up to Norfolk, Va., in order to take the journey to Jacksonville on the USS New York. The Marines’ presence on ship is not only a representation of the long standing

brotherhood between the Navy and Marine Corps, but also a great way for the Marine Corps to get back to its amphibious roots. “Moving some of our amphibious readiness groups does two things,” said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Ben Scotece, the Marine liaison officer permanently assigned to the USS New York. “It gives more room for all the amphibious ships in Norfolk and allows for another strategic position upon the East Coast.” The USS New York is a special designed LPD that can hold a significant amount of Marine Corps combat vehicles. “Depending on what the Marine Expeditionary

Unit mission is, depends on what we carry and how the command wants to disburse the forces across the ships,” said Scotece. “We can hold up to 16 Amphibious Assault Vehicles, which would be a part of the first wave in the event of an amphibious landing along with two V-22 Osprey.” The USS New York is an exceptionally special ship, that sailors and Marines aboard can relate to and take pride in. “This ship has a very special bow, which is the part of the ship that cuts through the ocean; it is made with seven and a half tons of steel from the World Trade Center,” said Master Chief Shawn Isbell, the ship’s

command master chief. The ship is also decorated with several pieces of New York and World Trade Center memorabilia. This gives the Marines and sailors aboard the ship a great deal of pride, due to the fact that around nearly every corner is a reminder of what happened on that tragic day of Sept. 11, 2001. During the USS New York’s voyage to its new home port, the ship’s crew took time out of their day to pay tribute to 20 Marines and sailors with a burial at sea ceremony. The ceremony brought the service members together to honor those who served before them. “Whenever we (New York) do something such as

the burial memorial service that was performed earlier today for Marines and sailors who have passed away, it makes things just a little bit more special,” said Isbell. “We serve on a ship that is dedicated to a tragedy that happened in everyone on board’s lifetime, and the seven and half tons of steel forged into the ship doesn’t just belong to the USS New York or New York City, it belongs to the United States of America.” The USS New York is schedule to make port in Jacksonville Fla., Friday morning, and from there it will continue keeping true to the its motto, “Strength forged through sacrifice, never forget.”

ANSF, Marines seeks stability in Sangin CPL. AUSTIN LONG

Regional Command Southwest

Since the beginning of the war, Sangin has built a reputation for heavy fighting. In 2008, the Marine Corps deployed to the district in an effort to curb insurgency. Over the years, the Marines fought some of the war’s bloodiest battles within the district and sustained a large amount of casualties. Over the last year, the landscape of the district has changed dramatically. The Afghan National Army’s 215 Corps and Afghan Local Police have taken over the lead security role and jointly have conducted several large-scale operations against insurgency within the district’s Green Zone, a small stretch of fertile ground known for concealing insurgents’ movements. The Marine Corps has

taken a secondary role, serving as advisers for the counterinsurgency mission. As the Afghan National Security Forces continue their security transition, Security Force Assistance Adviser Teams remain committed to assisting them. At Forward Operating Base Nolay, advisers with 2nd Brigade, 215 Corps, assist the Afghans in advancing their means. “We’re here to re-enforce the Afghan solution,” said Col. Christopher Douglas, the team leader. “They have a great grasp of the area and what type of future they want. We may have minor solutions to add to their overall plans, but at the end of the day it’s our job to reinforce the solution they come up with.” Afghan soldiers are manning security checkpoints, conducting offensive operations, directing security pa-


trols and completing daily resupply missions. They are communicating their mission to the locals and are aiding them every chance they get. The brigade is governing the region successfully and working with the local police to maintain stability as one team with one objective. Although the brigade is achieving success, they are still working hard to improve their capabilities. Building Relationships Douglas and his team took over advising in November and have worked hard to build a relationship with the soldiers of 2nd Brigade. “Rapport means establishing a relationship,” said Capt. Paul Tremblay, the deputy team leader. “For Afghans who grow up in a tribal culture, your word, reputation and character mean everything.” For Afghan soldiers and leaders to trust the Marines,

they have to get to know them based off of the relationship and time they spend with them, said Tremblay. The time spent just building a relationship with Afghan soldiers gives them credibility, both as a person and as a military leader. “There’s strength in numbers, and there’s strength in presence,” said Tremblay. “So something as simple as a meeting, the more people who are there, the more meaning it has. Even if we have nothing to offer, our presence shows something to our counterparts.” Tremblay said the presence of advisers at 2nd Brigade meetings and briefings serves two purposes. It showcases to the Afghans they both want to and are willing to provide feedback on military decisions that impact combat operations in Sangin. Making an impact Chief Warrant Officer Richard Gilmore completed a deployment in Afghanistan in 2011. When he arrived at Sangin, Afghanistan in November, he said he was surprised at how much the province had changed. “When you come back for another deployment, you come back with the expectation that very little changed or that you’re picking up where you left off,” said Gilmore, a logistics adviser. “This time, though, that’s not the case. I was very surprised to see these guys have improved. Their

abilities have increased dramatically during the last two years.” For some of the advisers, this is their first deployment to Afghanistan. The Marines attended multiple classes prior to deploying to learn how to teach basic skillsets to their Afghan counterparts. Most of them had lower expectations of the Afghan soldiers’ skills. “This is my first time in Afghanistan, and I didn’t really know what to expect other than what I heard from other people that had been here and what kind of training we got prior to coming out here,” said Gunnery Sgt. Guadalupe Pineda III, the team’s chief engineer adviser. “In the little time that we’ve been here, I’ve been able to see (Afghan soldiers) are at least, if not more than, proficient. I’m very impressed with where they’re at.” Since the brigade demonstrated an understanding and comprehension of basic skillsets, the adviser team has focused on advancing different areas of the brigade with follow-on training in specific areas, including troop accountability. Due to the size of Sangin, tracking troops and troop movements is important in battlefield planning. Advisers want to establish a quicker, easier method for the brigade to track wounded, killed or missing in action soldiers. Accurate troop counts will enable

commanders to properly reinforce and resupply combat outposts. Capt. Eric Rice, the team’s administration adviser, said the brigade does a good job of tracking their wounded and dead until they leave Nolay. He said he wants to see them communicate better amongst themselves and with other commands to track troop movement more efficiently. The future of Nolay As coalition forces continue to drawdown troops in Afghanistan, the 2nd Brigade advisers are scheduled to be the last advising unit to serve in Sangin. The team hopes to leave a lasting impression; however, they know it is up to the ANSF to have the knowledge, capability and courage to stand on it’s own against insurgency. The advisers have faith the ANA will be able to maintain stability in the region and are confident the ANA will continue to have a positive influence on the future of Afghanistan. “Whether we’re in the lead, they’re in the lead or we’re shoulder-to-shoulder, we’re trying to solve this complex problem together,” said Tremblay. “We have a mutual interest in the stability and future of Afghanistan.” Editor’s note: Regional Command Southwest consists of several Marine Corps based Camp Lejeune units.

ore than 900 Marines, sailors and their families gathered to welcome the season’s festivities during the annual Holiday Jubilee celebration at the Goettge Memorial Field House aboard Marine Corps Base Camp

Lejeune, Dec. 4. The field house was transformed into a winter wonderland, showcasing Christmas trees and decorations, bringing the spirit of the season to the service members of Headquarters and Support Battalion. “They outdid themselves,” said Sgt. Christal Dunaway a clerk with H&S Bn’s Distribution Management Office. “You can see they put a lot of

time and effort into it.” Participants enjoyed a buffet, craft tables, a photo booth with props, balloon art, face painting, as well as an interactive performance from an entertainer who dazzled crowds with feats on a unicycle, juggling and fire breathing. “It’s a great way to have the battalion and their families break bread, enjoy some downtime and celebrate the holidays togeth-

er,” said Lt. Col. Harry L. Gardner, the commanding officer of H&S Bn. It also served as a way to acquaint families with service members’ military brothers and sisters and for family members to see a bit of the military life through military static displays provided by 2nd Marine Division. It was an opportunity for members of the battalion community to celebrate

the holiday together before traveling to celebrate it with their families. “(The Holiday Jubilee) gets everybody together to relax and have fun,” said Pvt. Jeremy Hammond, a volunteer at the event and a clerk with Bravo Company. “Celebrating gets people in the mood for the holidays.” The celebration provided a family-friendly venue to gather with peers and

enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. “It’s good to see them come out and enjoy each other’s company,” said Heidi Anastasia, a Marine Corps Community Services coordinator with the battalion. “They had a night out where they didn’t have to cook or think of entertainment; they could just come out and enjoy themselves with their families.”

Marines with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit practice safely evacuating a simulated aircraft in a modular amphibious egress trainer at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. The MAET, commonly known as the helo dunker, has Marine Corps and Navy aircraft windows and doors to show service members how to safely exit an aircraft in the event of an underwater evacuation. The MEU is scheduled to deploy in early 2014 to the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility with the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group as a sea-based, expeditionary crisis response force capable of conducting amphibious missions across the full range of military operations.

Staff Sgt. Amanda Lujano, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit ammunition chief, practices breathing compressed air upside down underwater during underwater egress training at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. The underwater egress trainer, commonly known as the helo dunker, is designed to teach Marines and sailors how to safely exit an aircraft in the event of an underwater evacuation.

The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation’s Trees for Troops program visited Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to show appreciation to the Onslow County’s troops and donated more than 1,000 Christmas trees active-duty service members aboard the base, Tuesday. The program worked along with FedEx to transport the trees to more than 60 military bases across the US. Since 2005, Trees for Troops has donated farmgrown trees to all branches of the military. Weapons Training Battalion Marines volunteered their time to move the trees from the freight trucks to each individual unit’s transportation vehicles. “Volunteering our

time for something like this gives me a feeling of satisfaction,” said Lt. Col. Carlos Vallejo, commanding officer of Weapons Training Battalion. “It’s always good to give back during the holidays. I’d be more than happy to do this every Christmas just to show support for my Marines and the community.” The Trees for Troops program was recognized in 2012 as an organization that provides exemplary service and support to military families. Marine Corps Community Services employees welcomed the program aboard base and facilitated the transportation of trees to units aboard the base. “Giving these trees to our service members is very fulfilling,” said William Hildreth, operations officer with MCCS. “It makes Christmas enjoyable for any service mem-

bers who don’t have the resources to buy a tree this year.” Each participating unit aboard base was given a number of trees depending on the amount of Marines in the unit. The volunteering Marines donated their time to make sure every family aboard base had a merry Christmas. “Volunteering for this is very important to my Marines and I,” said Vallejo. “It’s important to show support for the community but this is about supporting our fellow Marines. The holidays wouldn’t be the same without a Christmas trees.” For an opportunity to get a tree, contact your unit’s family readiness officer.

Trout season falls short

On the central coast of North Carolina we can enjoy fishing almost any day of the year. However, in the fall, it narrows down to red and black drum and speckled trout. We often hope to see a fall and winter striper blitz — which hasn’t happened since 2004 — or giant bluefin tuna pushing their way down to the Crystal Coast, but that remains a distant hope. Unfortunately this season is shaping up to be just as disappointing as recent seasons. It’s fall, and with winter approaching quickly, we focus on the trout along the rock jetties and back creek internal waters of our sounds and rivers for off-season fishing action. We also look to those areas for drums. Large schools of red drum as well as redfish, can be found along Cape Lookout, Shackleford Banks and Bear and Topsail islands. Despite the excellent trout action throughout the area this past summer, and the outstanding speckled

trout season last fall, this season has fallen well below expectations. Currently, we are awash in small juvenile spike trout. The surf action has also been particularly puzzling and mostly a myriad of spike specks, with the only instance that could count as a trout run happening during the last couple of weeks. There were some keepers along with the occasional trophy fish. Despite the oddity that has been this season, I limited out twice along the Emerald Isle surf last week. Although things may change this winter, currently the limits include a 14-inch minimum in length and a creel limit of four speckled trout per day. That’s not four fish per trip to the beach or out fishing in your boat, but a maximum of four fish per day, regardless of how you dispose of them, which includes giving them away. At the moment, the Cape Lookout rock jetty has plenty of specks. Most are short spikes, although there are a few red and black drum there as well as gray trout in the deeper water. Another decent location is at Rough Point along Shackleford Banks, where from time-to-time there are some nice keeper fish in the mix. Considering the other jetties, the Shackleford Jetty as well as the jetty along the Beaufort Channel at Radio Island, has plenty of small fish. However, Dawson’s Creek on the north side

of the Neuse River as well as South River and Adams Creek on the south side, has been slow. There have been some keepers caught in the Neuse creeks that border Cherry Point, Slocum and Hancock, along with short fish. Usually this time of year the Highway-24 creeks are hot with trout, spooner’s, gayle’s, broad and deer, but not so this fall. I have only had one 16-inch keeper so far this season. This same is true for Queens Creek and along the White Oak River. Water temperatures, local menhaden abundance, the health of the stocks and other natural influences are determining factors of a good, bad, mediocre or nonexistent season. This has been a strange year from start to finish as far as weather and water temperatures are concerned. It is not unexpected that the fishing season has been just as strange. Pier update: Oceanana and Bogue piers on Bogue Banks are closed and will reopen in March. On Topsail Island, Seaview Pier will remain open throughout the winter. Surf City Pier is closed and will reopen March 28. Jolly Roger Pier remains open during the daytime when the weather permits.

dynamic warm-ups, and then go through an entire course of strength and agility workouts,” said John Heger, HITT center coordinator. “We also teach the students a testing protocol and some basic knowledge on nutrition, so they can take everything back and share it with their units.” The class encompasses a true strength and conditioning program. The instructors try to give students everything available to be successful and have the best conditioning for their jobs. “Even if the students don’t teach the specific HITT program, they should leave with the confidence to be able to PT their Marines,” said Katie Polivka, functional fitness instructor with Marine Corps Community Services. “As instructors, we are normally the ones in charge. During this class, the students take charge, it’s fun to pass the torch.” Polivka added, we see people come in teaching someone else workouts. We try to make sure they teach the right things. This class ensures more people know that. Many service members attended to learn new exercises and new ways to train his fellow Marines. “For my platoon, there is a lot of running,” said Furze. “It’s great to learn new workouts from this class to teach my other Marines, or even include new exercises into our runs.” The Train the Trainer program is open to all active-duty and reserve Marines.

Devilpups’ state championship hopes dashed with 50-13 loss LANCE CPL. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Despite the Lejeune Devilpups’ effort, the Plymouth Vikings showed their superior skill and beat the visiting Devilpups during the North Carolina High School Athletic Association East Regional Finals, 50-13, in Plymouth, N.C., Friday. The Devilpups started off strong with a first quarter touchdown, but could not stop the opposing offense throughout the game. The Devilpups began the game with a touchdown pass to Alex Ynfante, wide receiver, but couldn’t defend against the unstoppable Vikings. Throughout the first half, the Vikings pressured Lejeune’s offense and defense, displaying their skillset. “They played a better game than we did,� said Darryl Schwartz, Lejeune Devilpups’ head coach. “I just want the team to focus on the good things we’ve done this year.� The Vikings exploded in the second quarter, scoring 20 points.

“Their offense was pushing our team back,� said Jamaz Richardson, LeJeune Devilpup’ Starting running back. “We played a hard game, but it was hard to keep up once they gained momentum.� Richardson ran a punt return back for a touchdown before the half ended, it was the last points Lejeune put on the score board. After the first half, the Vikings scored 22 more points, ending the Devilpups’ hopes for the state championship game. “It’s disappointing,� said Richardson. “But I know we played a hard game.� The now 13-2 Devilpups ended their season with a disappointing loss, but will continue to work on their weaknesses for next season, said Schwartz. Lejeune’s Devilpups ended their season as the Coastal Plains Conference Champions, which was a first in the team’s history.

Mentors give direction at Hoops-N-Dreams jamboree CPL. DEVIN NICHOLS 2nd Marine Logistics Group

Parents, friends and volunteers gathered at the Brewster Middle School gymnasium aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, to support its students during the Hoops-N-Dreams jamboree, Friday. The founder of Hoops-N-Dreams, Shiana K. Barbosa, started the program at the middle school in 2012 to encourage student success’ in school through physical activities and mentorship. “My favorite experience volunteering with Hoops-N-Dreams is the jamboree,” said 1st Lt. Sarah Brewer, the supply officer for Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group. “You really get to see the kids come together as a team.” Students put on either a white or black jersey and played basketball games against each other. The mentors, who are active-duty Marines and sailors, work hand-in-hand with the students to encourage teamwork, camaraderie and positive character development.

“I got involved with Hoops-NDreams because my commanding officer knew about the program last year and had mentioned it in one of our staff meetings,” said Brewer. “I (was a) teacher before joining the Marine Corps, so I’m used to working with kids and I wanted to get into working with kids again while still being a Marine. I thought this was a great program to join.” Students who weren’t playing basketball at the time were able to interact in many other activities like ping pong, crafts and games in the school’s hallways. Parents were also involved in the jamboree, playing games with their kids and participating in contests. Food was served for everyone attending that evening. “I’m not a huge player, but the kids give me a passion about basketball,” said Brewer. “I played soccer in high school and that is what I was used to. The kids are better at it than me and they are trying to make me better at the game so I end up loving it.”

Zumba your pounds off at Wallace Creek Fitness Center LANCE CPL. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Hearts were thumping as patrons danced to the beat of the music during a Zumba class at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Thursday. Service members, families and base employees participated in the hourlong class, which is designed to create a friendly environment where patrons are introduced to fast-paced music and dance moves. Zumba classes do not require previous training, so anyone can step right into the class, have an enjoyable time and burn calories, said Sanda Heger, Group exercise coordinator with Marine Corps Community Services. The class incorporates different types of music and dancing to keep patrons guessing and find new ways to enjoy the class. “They make it feel like a club with

music and lights,” said Rose Cantu, “and it’s a good chance to meet other military spouses.” Easy-to-learn moves welcome participants at any skill level, all while keeping a fast pace during the class. “The fast-pace keeps everyone moving and hearts beating,” added Heger. “I think Zumba could be a good way for someone who’s tired of repetitive physical training to change up their schedule.” Zumba offers an environment where participants are challenged, but also have fun. “This type of class is an all-around physically challenging class,” said Heger. “Anyone who attends this class will see a cardio improvement.” The Zumba classes are offered Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center.

hildren came out bundled up in coats and scarves for the opportunity to build snowmen and play with real snow as they lined up to take turns at a sled-riding ramp during the second Winterfest at Riverwalk Crossing Park in downtown Jacksonville, Saturday. The Winterfest is an annual event and it gives children the chance to play in snow, and families to enjoy holiday activities. The event provided fun for all ages, as families gathered to witness holiday entertainment. Children put on aprons and goggles and grabbed their hammers to make toys, and there was never a dull moment between meeting Santa and riding on the train. Ice sculptures were created on the spot, and children enjoyed face painting by various Girl Scout troops. “The best part of this event, to be honest, is everything,” said Nick Brauninger, Recreation and Parks citywide services supervisor. The crowd only grew as vendors dished up a wide variety of food,

‘Homefront’ DEA agent gets tangled in high-profile case; ‘Delivery Man’ sets on journey to discover inner parenting potential Now playing at Camp Lejeune and Midway Park “DELIVERY MAN” (PG-13) “Delivery Man” is a comedy-drama about a man who discovers he might be the father of over 500 children. Vince Vaughn (“Couple’s Retreat,” “Dilemma,” “The Wedding Crashers”) stars as David Wozniak, an affable underachiever and good-natured person, who 20 years earlier was a frequent sperm bank donor. His mundane life is suddenly turned upside down, when he finds out he has fathered 533 children through his anonymous sperm donations to a fertility clinic. In debt to the mob, rejected by his pregnant girlfriend, things couldn’t look any worse for David, when a large group of them petition the sperm bank to reveal their father’s identity. As David struggles to decide whether or not he should reveal his true identity, he embarks on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self, but the father he could become as well. Cobie Smulders (“Safe Haven,” “The Avengers”) costars as Emma, David’s girlfriend, who must decide whether he would make a suitable father. Chris Pratt (“Mon-

eyball,” “The Five-Year Engagement”) costars as Brett, David’s buddy and legal advisor. Also appearing are well-known Polish actor Andrzej Blumenfeld as David’s father; Britt Robertson (“Scream 4”) as Kristen; Bobby Moynihan (“Grown Ups 2”) as Aleksy; and Dave Patten (“Acceptance”) as Adam. Canadian director and writer Ken Scott (“Sticky Fingers,” “Starbuck”) concocted this little tale previously in his 2011 French language flick “Starbuck” and is now adapting his own comedy for the American audience. “Delivery Man” is a comedy about a man who discovers the numerous sperm donations he so happily made years earlier ended up making him the biological father of many. In this latest venture, Vaughn gives a much gentler performance than usual; however he has little to work with in this otherwise missed opportunity of an uninspired comedy. Now playing at Carmike 16 and Patriot Theater “HOMEFRONT” (R) “Homefront” is an action thriller about a man who is trying to change his way of life.

Marine Corps Air Station New River’s Single Marine Program volunteers, Hospital Corpsman Juan LeonTorres and Lance Cpl. Drew Phillips, Combat Logistics Regiment-35, watch as children play in the snow pitt during the Winterfest at Riverwalk Crossing Park in downtown Jacksonville, Saturday. WINTERFEST FROM 1C while volunteers worked steadily to bring holiday cheer to families. “It’s a collaboration of citizens and businesses to kick off the upcoming season,” said Brauninger. Many of the volunteers came from the Single Marine Program aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River. The program allows single service members opportunities to get involved with the community and participate in recreational events. For some service members, it is an opportunity to get out and be a part of the community. “A lot of time, people get stuck in a rut living in the barracks; this is a great way to get out and meet new people,” said Lance Cpl. Andrew Shepler, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron-29 New River’s Single Marine Program volunteer. The Marines assisted with the children’s games, set up and breakdown of the event and more. Many played with the children, passing out candy as they won games. They hosted a reindeer ring toss, monitored the snow pit and helped kids decorate cards for the troops. “It’s fun; I’ve been volunteering for a couple of months, and I enjoy interacting with the kids,” said Sgt. Keith Hamilton, 2nd Marine Division Camp Lejeune’s Single Marine Program volunteer. The fun continued on as families gathered to watch local school choirs perform Christmas carols. As the sun set Photo by Ashley Torres on this winter wonderland, Jacksonville Mayor, Sammy Nixon Morrow, coloring in cards for the soldiers Phillips flipped the ceremonial switch on the holiday during the Winterfest at Riverwalk Crossing Park in lights illuminating trees along the park. downtown Jacksonville, Saturday.

With the holidays approaching, it is important to remember those who are hurting. Often times, we get so caught up in the business of the season we fail to realize how difficult this time of year is for many people. Just this year, many Marine families have lost their loved ones, experienced crisis, or are faced with heart-breaking decisions. I think of one young female Marine who recently lost her unborn baby girl while her husband was in Afghanistan. I think of another family who lost their 2-and-a-half-month old son as a result of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. I think of another family whose 7-year-old son has brain cancer. Meanwhile, we are caught up with decorating, baking, travelling, shopping and all kinds of other activities associated with the holidays that consume our time and thoughts. And the hurting … well, the hurting are suffering from emotional distress, because they are contemplating their first Christmas without their loved ones. The hurting are preoccupied with the health of their loved

r e h

ones. The hurting are struggling to scrounge a few dollars up to purchase a holiday meal or to buy their children a Christmas present. When I stop and think about what these families are experiencing during this time of year, I know I have a responsibility to love them with an encouraging word or with a contribution of time or money. To identify the hurting requires us to slow down and listen, which goes against the growing trend of the hectic holidays. So the question is: Have you slowed down to consider the hurting? Have you slowed down to consider the needy? And more importantly, what can you do about it that would help to bring healing to a grieving parent or a smile to an innocent child? I am reminded of the words, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these my brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Remembering the hurting this season transcends beyond ourselves and gives to others a hope and peace from a loving and faithful God. Your words or your actions may give a hurting family a Christmas they will cherish for years to come.

Heroes At Home Still Serving award recognizes veterans ASHLEY TORRES Lifestyles editor

The Marine Corp Base Camp Lejeune Officers’ Wives’ Club was filled with nominees and their families for the third annual Heroes at Home Still Serving awards hosted by Landmark Military Media of North Carolina, Wednesday. The event recognizes veterans who are still serving by volunteering their time with local charities and organizations. The event opened with the Lejeune High School’s Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps marching Marine Corps colors. Harriet Williams, a Marine spouse sang the “The Star Spangled Banner.” The opening events set the stage for dinner as cohosts Emily Kelley, account executive for Rotovue and event organizer, and Denise Walker, LMMNC general manager, made introduc-

tions and welcomed the guest of honor, Brig. Gen. Robert F. Castellvi, Camp Lejeune Commander. Castellvi spoke passionately about how honored he was to be with these hard working veterans. He began by welcoming those in the room, before talking to the nominees. He spoke about the positive effect each nominee had on the community and himself. “I was honored to be here. Still Serving allows us to recognize other service men and women who continue to serve,” said Castellvi. Each nominee was judged by six community members from various volunteer organizations. Retired Maj. Gen. Robert Dickerson, Still Serving awards winner, was recognized for his outstanding work with Wounded Warriors, Hope for the Warriors, The Military Association and the Jacksonville

Chamber of Commerce. Dickerson won a $1,000 check to the charity of his choice and a two-night stay at Sanderling Resort. Dickerson donated his check to the Hope for Warriors, where he dedicated some of his time to help Marines. “It’s a great honor, to support Marines here,” said Dickerson. “This is the reason we have lived and retired in North Carolina.” The first civilian nominee was announced for this year’s event. Reinhild Moldenhauer Huneycutt, Camp Lejeune Public Affairs assistant, received the first civilian certificate for her outstanding work with the Marine Corps for the past 43 years, and her commitment to working alongside veterans and local organizations. For some nominees, they were unaware of being nominated until the invitation showed up at their front door. Several nominations

were anonymous, but all detailed how each nominee makes a difference in the community. “It was a thrill; you never expect to be nominated for this award,” said Fernando Schiefelbein, a finalist. Schiefelbein retired from the Marine Corps after 21 years of service. Since then, he has become an active member in veteran community events. Each candidate was nominated for their commitment to the community. While they have all previously served, working in the community provides a way for each to foster an everlasting link to the Marine Corps. “It keeps me connected with the Marine Corps since I retired,” said Jeffery Walker, nominee finalist. “My son is in the Marine Corps (stationed in San Diego), and I like to think someone on the West Coast is looking

out for them.” Weller has been volunteering with the USO for the past two years. “I have such a respect for those that sacrifice so much so we can call ourselves free. I love being a part of this event and being in the midst of so many great, selfless men

and women,” said Kelley. The Still Serving award is an event to give recognition to those who continue to be an integral part of our community. For more information about Still Serving and to submit your nominations for next year, contact emily.kelley@pilotonline.com.

Operation Homefront brings toys, meals to military families ASHLEY TORRES Lifestyles editor

More than 300 military families attended Home for the Holidays through Operation Homefront aboard the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Monday. The event is just one way the program eases the challenge for military families during the holidays. The program began with a $1.5 million donation from Walmart. This donation provided the program the opportunity to give thousands of toys for military families in need. While stocking stuffers make great gifts, each child also received one bigger present. “They come in with a bag and choose stocking stuffers out for each child and one premium gift that they may really want for each child,” said Holly Cummings, Operation Homefront, Carolinas executive director. The program also provided turkeys and meals to military families, Wednesday. Families once again congregated, as volunteers helped hand out meals.

“This part allows us to ensure families receive a turkey and extras through the holidays,” said Cummings. Operation Homefront has been providing military families assistance through financial relief, food donations, and giving recognition to those outstanding military families. Along with the meals and toys, Camp Lejeune Fisher House also received $500,000. This donation allows families who need a temporary place to stay, while enduring the anxiety of a loved one’s medical condition. Through donations, the Fisher House has the ability to pay the lodging fees for every family. “No family ever has to pay for the Fisher House,” said Derek Donvon, Fisher House’s Vice President for Program and Community Affairs. Although the holiday season will come to an end soon, Operation Homefront and the Fisher House continue to partner together helping military families nationwide. To donate or for more information on Operation Homefront, call 757-806-6150 or for Fisher House, call 450-3884.

Members of the 2nd Marine Division Band are preparing to bring holiday joy through their music, at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Base Theater, Sunday. The band has been practicing for months as they arrange to bring seasonal cheer. Audiences can expect to hear a variety of traditional holiday music from the 50 band members, including music from the jazz ensemble. The band has been practicing for this event for five months in between graduations, Marine Corps birthdays, parades and more. “They have worked really hard,” said Gunnery Sgt. Shannon Farguhar, enlisted conductor. “It’s going to be an outstanding performance.” Families are not the only ones excited to witness this annual concert. Band members expressed their excitement to be able to perform and show what they have been working on for months. “It’s free; what better way to spend the holidays than with family, friends

and the 2nd Marine Division band,” said Lance Cpl. Matthew Ramirez, who plays the piano. Ramirez has been playing for over 10 years, though he has only been in the Marine Corps for two years. The 2nd Marine Division band has been around since World War II. While they did not always play engagements such as the annual Holiday Concert, they experienced a moment of glory when they marched in the Victory Parade, in Washington, D.C., in 1991, after participating in combat in Southwest Asia. Since then, the band has grown and is currently the only band aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “This band has a very busy schedule,” said Sgt. India Ward, who plays the flute and piccolo. “This concert season has more of our effort into it.” The annual Holiday Concert is a chance to experience a unique side of the Marine Corps and enjoy the musical talents of the 2nd Marine Division Band, Sunday at 5 p.m. Concert organizers promise an unforgettable event packed with surprises.

Marine Corps Installations East welcomes new commanding general LANCE CPL. JUSTIN A. RODRIGUEZ Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


rig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East relinquished his position to Brig. Gen. Robert. F. Castellvi in front of family and friends at Marston Pavilion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, July 12. Among the attendees, fellow Marines shared their thoughts on Gorry. “Thousands of Marines and civilians on base are going to remember and miss him for the good he’s done,” said Maj. Gen. Juan Ayala, commander of Marine Corps Installations Command. “With re-

sponsibilities commanding in five different states, he worked to create growth on Lejeune with a diminishing economy.” Gorry, who has been the commanding general for MCIEAST since July 22, 2011, came into his position after serving as the director for Command and Staff College, Marine Corps University aboard MCB Quantico. Gorry also spent four years at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island as a Series Commander, Company Commander and Battalion S-4 Officer. Gorry holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina. “Thank you for allowing me to be here and supporting my efforts,” said Gorry. “A great relationship between


Brig. Gen. Robert. F. Castellvi

the base and town can’t happen overnight, but the Marines, their families and local government have done everything they can to help me. I’m looking forward to continuing on in the Fleet Marine Force and see great things come from Camp

Lejeune.” Castellvi, who comes into the position as commander of MCIEAST, holds

a degree in finance from the University of Illinois, with a Marine Corps career that began in 1984 as an infantry officer with 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines. Castellvi comes to MCB Camp Lejeune from 1st Marine Expeditionary Force where he served as the chief of staff. “I’m anxious to get out and meet each and every one of you,” said Castellvi. “I’m proud to be a part of this all. I pinched myself this morning to make sure none of this is a dream. I want to continue the legacy on Lejeune. I will dedicate every day to support the Marines and sailors on Camp Lejeune. This is your Marine Corps. The Corps belongs to the people, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

With hours still left in their patrols, the Marines do their best to spend time anywhere they can find shade as they search from one compound to another. “(Patrolling) can be rough at times and sometimes it gets pretty annoying if you end up not finding anything,” said Smith. “But that feeling of pride when you come back with some great intelligence is a great feeling. That is what gets you through the days.” The Marines have faced nearly 75 significant events in their two and a half months operating in Helmand province. The incidents include direct fire, and small-arms fire engagements to the discovery of improvised explosive devices. The Warlords have encountered nearly 20 Improvised Explosive Devices so far. Smith recalls two occasions when his platoon came under direct fire, forcing the Marines to take immediate action and engage the enemy. SEE WARLORDS 7A
