Marines, sailors, families and friends grooved their way into the Christmas spirit at the 2nd Marine Division Holiday Concert, presented by the 2nd Marine Division Band at the Base Theater aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Sunday. The concert was also streamed live to Marines and sailors supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and around the world. “We have all heard ‘Tis the season to be jolly,’ so that’s what we did. We brought the spirit of Christmas to everybody,” said Cpl. Alberto Carrion, a clarinet player. The show consisted of continuous music played from different sections within the band, including the concert band, party band and jazz Ensemble. Each section was designed to ignite a spark of Christmas joy in the audience. The concert was family-oriented and presented skits with Marines dressed up as different holiday characters. Sgt. India M. Ward, a piccolo player with the band, dressed up as a hippopotamus and danced across stage as the band played their rendition of “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,” drawing

laughter from the crowd. The ability to stream the concert live provided the band the opportunity to spread Christmas cheer to the Division’s deployed Marines. “I hope it means a lot to the deployed Marines, just so they know that we are still thinking about them, because I know they may feel as if sometimes the rest of the world forgets about them,” said Lance Cpl. Matthew Ramirez, a pianist. “So I hope it brought them some holiday cheer and made them feel a little bit closer to home.” Between songs, the audience was able to see pre-recorded holiday greetings from their loved ones, friends and fellow Marines in Afghanistan. The families of deployed service members were also afforded the opportunity to record messages for their loved ones overseas. After all the hard work put out by the band, they felt as if they accomplished their mission of raising Christmas spirit. “When you actually play in front of people and get a great response, it just brings so much joy and happiness to your heart and makes you realize that’s why you’re there in the first place,” Ramirez said.

Mass casualty drills bring realism to homefront LAnCe CpL. SHAwn vALoSin 2nd Marine logistics Group

Agonizing cries of Marines and sailors were heard across Soiffert Field after simulated improvised explosive devices detonated aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 12. Sirens rang out, calling the quick reaction force to respond. While service members tried to rescue the simulated casualties, acting insurgents conducted a follow-on attack, detonating bombs strapped to their chests. The entire attack was a simulated mass casualty exercise conducted by 2nd Medical Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, to maintain mission readiness and prepare Marines and sailors for future deployments. “I’ve never been deployed, nor done any training like this,” said Pfc. Luke Dailey, a motor transportation operator with 2nd Medical Bn. “I’ve learned a lot about the medical side, as well as the security side for Marines from this.” Service members attended

classes and practiced various scenarios they could encounter in a deployed environment during the days leading up to the exercise. The sailors instructed Marines on what surgical teams do on the battlefield, and the Marines taught sailors about patrolling, evacuating casualties and detaining prisoners. “It’s been a challenge to create the type of tempo and scenarios that you face in a deployed environment,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Frankie Segura, an instructor with 2nd Medical Bn. “We try to emphasize to the participants that they each need to be a jack-of-all trades. Communications have to be constant and multiple casualties have to be treated and evacuated.” After experiencing simulated IED explosions and suicide bombers while rescuing their fallen comrades, the first responders treated the casualties’ wounds on the battlefield and then evacuated them out of the danger zone. Patients were then placed on a stretcher and brought into the forward resuscitative surgical system to receive further lifesaving treatment.

ID privilege card eligibility information at your fingertips When contemplating whether you are eligible for any kind of military benefits, it seems the issue of thinking one rates an ID card gets many into trouble. Especially in regards to former spouses. Do not determine your eligibility based off the response from family and friends, go into the local DEERS/ ID card facility and communicate with their subject matter expert. There are rules applied, required legal documentation and submission to higher headquarters of each military branch of service retirement/service project offices for approval or denial. Separation and divorce are two separate issues. If separated, whether legally or not, you are an eligible dependent and privileges will continue to the date of divorce. Once a divorce is finalized, the sponsor must bring the original divorce decree signed by the presiding judge to the nearest DEERS/ID card facility and be entered into the system. If you took

it to IPAC or an administrative office, you still need to have it in the DEERS/ RAPIDS system. Additionally, benefits will be determined for those eligible dependents, such as biological or legally adopted children. Former spouses who have not remarried can apply for the 20-20-20 or 20-20-15, if they meet the eligibility requirements. Both aspects carry different eligible benefits and have to be approved by the member’s military service affiliation. ID cards are no longer valid after divorce and the former spouse has an obligation to return it. There are new procedures going into all services matrix at gates and facilities that will require scanning of the ID card and if you are found ineligible, due the card being expired, it will be confiscated. You can be prosecuted under federal law for false identification and illegal entry into a mili-

tary installation. Additionally, family members’ ID cards are an entitlement, granted by a congressional law (not the member). It is Congress and the Department of Defense who gets to decide who can and cannot have an ID card, not the military member. A military member who unlawfully takes a military identification card away from his/her spouse can be charged for larceny under the provisions of Article 121 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. All of the services use the same “DOD Joint Regulations,” which governs the issuance of DOD eligible military identification cards. There are processes to help in regards to the member refusing to make an application for eligible dependents during separation. For more information, contact the ID card center at or the local DEERS at


What are the best values at the commissary compared to out-in-town grocery stores? Is it worth the drive if you live off base? I do most of our shopping there. It is definitely worth the drive if you live off base. More importantly, it is one of our benefits of being a military family. Utilize the tools that are provided for you. Amily Mack

Meat! Foreign foods, milk, cleaning stuff. Everything is typically cheaper, the 5% surcharge is worth it in states with sales tax even. We are retired and still use it all the time, except Monday (closed) and payday (too crazy). Lin Ash

Meats, quinoa, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, milk, K-cups, cereal, spices, bread. OK everything. That’s where I get all my stuff. Jo-Lynn Powell

Don’t be a victim, prevent impaired driving Motorists are facing an epidemic of death on our roadways, and tragically many of the fatalities and serious injuries could have been prevented. It is estimated that more than 40 percent of all motorist fatalities are caused by alcohol-impaired drivers. Last year, 34,080 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic accidents. This number does not include the tens of thousands of people seriously injured or who suffered permanent disabling injuries. According to the Naval Safety Center, the Marine Corps alone lost 31 personnel in motor vehicle accidents in FY13. The Marine Corps lost another 15 personnel on motorcycles and eight off-duty and recreational activities. The fact is, too many lives are lost each year to a tragedy that can be avoided. This trend is unacceptable and must be corrected. Follow these tips to help reduce these tragic numbers: • If you are going to drink alcohol, do not drive. Designate a non-drinking driver prior to the event. • Support the strengthening and vigorous enforcement of impaired-driving laws. • Young drivers are at particular risk to be involved in

alcohol-related crashes. Remember, if you’re under 21, do not consume any alcohol. If you are over 21, do not drink and drive, and educate yourself and fellow service members on state laws pertaining to DWIs. • Your best defense against a drunk driver is wearing your vehicle safety belt; ensure it is always used. • Volunteer to be a designated driver and don’t hesitate to encourage others to volunteer. • Never condone or approve of excessive alcohol consumption. Intoxicated behavior is deadly. • Don’t ever let your friends drive drunk. Take their keys, have them spend the night, have them ride home with someone else, call a cab, or do whatever else is necessary but don’t let them drive. • If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit or get a sober friend or family member to drive you. • When driving, avoid use of medications that may impair your judgment and awareness. Also avoid driving while fatigued. Take frequent breaks or rotate drivers periodically.


It might be worth it if you lived really close to base. If you think about how much fuel you spent to get on base, it adds up to what you would spend out in town. Leroy Perez

he cold air vaporized the Marines breath and steam escaped from the boiling water in their field kitchen. In a tight tent packed with dishes, the Marines with Food Service Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, prepared a warm meal for cold troops aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 11. The company came out with two missions. The first was to feed the surrounding units in the field with hot meals in support of their training evolution. The second was to compete against food service specialists from 2nd Marine Division and 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing in the Maj. Gen. W.P.T. Hill Field Mess Competition. The award was established in 1985 to improve food service operation and recognize the best field and garrison messes in the Marine Corps. Competitors are judged in areas such as operations, sanitation, taste and quality of food. “The overall intent is to set up a site and to have a training event that helps us hone

our skills in a competitive environment against units across the Marine Corps,” said Capt. Joseph L. Fore, a Food Service Co. commander. “This is a competition, but at the same time, we are feeding CLR-27. “(For) many of these competitions, you just set up a site and bus Marines out and they eat and go away. We actually have been out here for several weeks, feeding Communication Co. last week and CLR-27 while they conduct their command post exercise. So it’s been a duel mission out here.” Food Service Co. Marines prepared shrimp jambalaya, chicken creole, rice, cornbread, oatmeal cookies, corn, brownies, fruit cocktail and salad, along with juices and coffee to drink. “This gives us the opportunity to showcase ourselves and show what we are capable of,” said Gunnery Sgt. Izra Ali. “These Marines work in the mess hall day-in and day-out and (it can) get monotonous at times doing the same thing over and over. They come out here with a change of scenery and change of gear. It gives them a chance to be versatile. We are garrison and field, so we have to be proficient on both sides of the

house; so this is valuable training.” The Marines faced an unexpected challenge when the expeditionary field kitchen was forced to shut down Dec. 10, but they did not let that faze them. Responding quickly, the Marines reverted to using the enhanced tray rationed heating system to overcome this complication and complete the remaining meals in light of the competition. “I was upset at first, but at the same time, we learned from it,” said Ali. “It showed how we could adapt to the situation. We were getting ready to prep dinner and we had to stop everything we were doing and change gear. It took a few hours, but we were able to adapt and we have our meal put out exactly as planned and it was a good learning curve.” The food was displayed and Marines and sailors started to pour in as they tried for themselves the competing dish. “They are very grateful with the weather being how it is and to come here and have something hot on their plate,” said Ali. “One of the things that boosts morale in the field is hot chow and that is what we do. We are a service, and we try to make their lives a little happier when they are out here.”

ADAL EX forces service members out of their comfort zones Lance Cpl. Shawn Valosin 2nd Marine Logistics Group

Service members with 2nd Dental Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, conducted a two-week-long Authorized Dental Allowance List exercise, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 2-13. While everyone else enjoyed the warmth of their buildings, protected from the harsh gusts of wind and torrential downpour of rain, these sailors held out, armed with minimal tools and a tent. Though the hours dragged on, they kept their spirits high, thriving on the challenge at hand; to do more with less, and to be as efficient in the field as they are in a building. “We brought our battalion out to experience the use of field dental equipment,” said Navy Capt. Rodney Gunning, the commanding officer of 2nd Dental Bn. “The overall intent is that our personnel feel comfortable using this equipment in a field environment, because once they’re deployed, they have to know how to use this equipment independently and if it goes down they have to know how to fix it.” The battalion conducts an ADAL EX twice a year to keep its sailors updated on expeditionary equipment and procedures. During the exercises, service members who would normally go to a clinic for their routine checkup and cleaning are sent to a field location to have their oral work done. This forces Navy personnel to get out of their comfort zones of wallmounted X-ray machines

The exercise gave sailors with 2nd Dental Bn. the chance to get hands on with expeditionary equipment and prepared them for future deployments. and power-operated exam chairs, and prepares them for what it will be like to examine and treat patients in a field environment. “When you’re in a clinic, you have people who can subspecialize in things, but in an expeditionary setting, everyone has to be a jack of all trades,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Roberto Fontanez. “My favorite part (of the ADAL EX) is learning to do everything and seeing how fast I can get with the skills I have. You can take X-rays really well when you have the time for it, but learning how to do it quickly and good, that’s the challenge.”

Sailors working in the field exam rooms had to hold an X-ray machine up to patients’ jaws instead of having a mechanical arm hold it there. Patients in the field sat in foldout exam chairs, rather than the leather mechanical seats they’ve become so used to. Sailors with 2nd Dental Bn. marched approximately three miles to a destination where they proceeded to assemble and disassemble a tent, and had the chance to get hands on with expeditionary equipment, Dec. 6. “Marching out together and getting hands on with

the equipment was a great opportunity for us because it gives us a chance to get out of our everyday routine and builds camaraderie within the battalion,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Raymond Hardy. When the sailors finished training for the day, they threw their flak jackets and packs on and marched three miles back to their starting point. “My favorite part (of the ADAL EX) is the people seeing our personnel coming together,” said Gunning. “It’s not something that one person can pull off. Everyone has to operate as a team.”

Lance Cpl. Tayevion Edwards, a forward observer with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, updates information on a board outside the logistics office aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 11.

26th MEU Marine shines as forward observer Lance Cpl. Joshua Brown 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

Artillery is a critical military occupational specialty in the Marine Corps that impacts the tide of battle with an array of long-ranged weaponry designed to wreak havoc on our nation’s enemies. Lance Cpl. Tayevion Edwards is a forward observer with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Edwards works with Advanced Field Artillery Data Systems to assist Marines manning mortars, or a variety of batteries, with locking onto and hitting designated targets. “My goal is to make sure we hit the target without any fratricide and provide support to meet mission success,” said Edwards. Edwards who stands five feet and nine inches tall, stares through his glasses and speaks quietly in a soft tone. “I joined the Marine Corps after high school because I wasn’t interested in college, and I wanted to try something different,” said Edwards. Edwards is one of five children. With one older sister, two younger

sisters and a younger brother, he is the only one currently in the military. “I like what I do. It’s hard work, but I’m happy and the experiences are great,” said Edwards. Edwards deployed with the 26th MEU for eight-months aboard the USS Kearsarge during its operations in the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility. “He was definitely a key component to the success of our unit during deployment,” said Sgt. Dylan Pierce, a 26th MEU administrative specialist. Edwards’ skills were tested and applied during deployment when he was tasked with helping coordinate operations involving the Kearsarge’s artillery battery to ensure safety and accuracy. “He definitely matured over deployment and did really well having been ‘chopped’ over straight from his MOS school,” said Pierce. Edwards joined the MEU after completing his occupational school and immediately became immersed in work, because the MEU began its pre-deployment training in September 2012. “He demonstrated knowledge of his MOS throughout the deployment

and learned a lot during our operations,” said Pierce. Pierce said Edwards demonstrated his well-rounded abilities as a Marine, demonstrating efficiency in his tasks, mission oriented mind-set and initiative to take on tasks. Pierce believes Edwards has the potential to be a great leader with these traits. “I plan to re-enlist and continue my career as a Marine,” said Edwards. “I’d like to eventually be a Joint Fires Observer and call in close air support and artillery fire myself.” A JFO interacts with controllers located in communications towers and pilots, or artilleryman, to help call-in and order air strikes, or long range support, during field operations. Edwards said he enjoys what he does and what the Marine Corps has taught him. “Honor is the most important thing the Marine Corps taught me,” said Edwards. “I want to be an honorable man, honor my family and do great things.” Pierce said Edwards is a benefit to the team, a good Marine and predicts Edwards will do well in the Marine Corps and be a great leader.

It’s easy to forget about the tiny, seemingly trivial details that people contribute to the larger whole. However, it’s these small, tedious efforts that separate good from great, and excellent from outstanding Marines. This week, one Marine with Black Sea Rotational Force 14 was recognized for his direct effect on mission accomplishment and unit efficiency. Lance Cpl. Kristopher Pippin, a light armored vehicle crewman with Black Sea Rotational Force 14, was chosen as Marine of the Week, Dec. 13. Pippin attended Marine Corps recruit training in September 2012. “I wanted to help with the fight in Afghanistan,” said Pippin. “None of my family members have ever been in the military, and I really just wanted to see what I could do.” Now, barely a year later, Pippin continues to impress his chain of command with his self-discipline. Sgt. Steven Scheutzow, a squad leader with BSRF14, said although Pippin is new to the unit, he can already see he is capable of great things. “He’s a young Marine who continues to grow mentally and physically as a Marine and a person. He’s eager and wants to develop and better himself in preparation for the next rank and billet,” said Scheutzow. Pippin said there are numerous things he enjoys about being in the military,

including traveling and having a Marine Corps family. “I’ve always wanted to travel, and this deployment is the first time I’ve ever been out of the country. The best part about being in Romania is getting to experience the culture,” said Pippin. “The best part about being in the infantry is the brotherhood.” Scheutzow believes that Marine of the Week will be beneficial for Pippin. “I think Marine of the Week will give Pippin a boost of confidence and sense of accomplishment,” said Scheutzow. “The award will show him that he’s on the right track and (he will) continue to grow into the Marine he can be.” Scheutzow also said he trusts Pippin has a bright and successful future as a Marine. “He has a great work ethic, is extremely intelligent and outstanding at physical training. He has a certain drive to him to learn more and more about the Marine Corps, and he’s that Marine that every fire team or squad leader wants,” said Scheutzow. Pippin is part of an annual rotation of forces at Mihail Kogalniceanu, Romania, that aim to promote regional stability and security, strengthening close and solid relationships with their partner nations, and act as the crisis-contingency force in the Eastern European region. Editor’s note: Black Sea Rotational Force consists of Marines from 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion.

New system to help alert base community of emergencies Lance Cpl. Joshua W. Grant Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Tragedies like the Fort Hood and Washington Naval Yard shootings are reminders violence can sometimes be present aboard a government facility, but a new system will assist in keeping all base residents safe and informed. AtHoc, a mass notifica-

tion system, is being implemented aboard all Marine Corps installations to provide better security and safety for its residents. “AtHoc was rolled into the installation emergency management program as a result of the Fort Hood shooting,” said Paul Stenger, director of plans for the Marine Corps Installations East Operations Division. “There is a Department of Defense

requirement to notify the base population within 10 minutes of any threat.” Once fully deployed, the system is capable of notifying all service members and DOD civilians aboard Camp Lejeune with a common access card regarding threats. Personnel must specify the means of preferred notification including phone call, email or text, said Tabatha Hart, web emergency operations

center administrator for Marine Corps Installations East. AtHoc is designed to notify users of emergencies such as active shooters, terrorist attacks or natural disasters. The Giant Voice system was installed to reach dependents and all other civilians working on base as another part of the emergency management program. “The Giant Voice sys-

tem, the large public announcement speaker system, is designed to help notify the individuals not alerted by AtHoc,” said Stenger. “The speaker system is already in place in high population areas across the base, including school areas and housing, to ensure everyone is made aware of any incident or disaster.” Stenger added, the Giant Voice will notify people of

an emergency, but will also inform them of the best course of action, whether to seek shelter or avoid an area of base.

threatening calm settled around 2nd Platoon as the whirl of helicopter blades faded into the night. It was 5:15 a.m., with dusk nearing fast. We clicked on our night-vision goggles and stumbled our way through the darkness. Short, deliberate steps felt out the ground before us as the long file of Marines with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, pushed north to the nearby bazaar. Most of the homes around the Bari Gul Bazaar were still quiet, the residents still asleep in their beds. We knew that would change quickly. The noise of the helicopters that dropped us in the open field was anything but subtle. If there were fighters in the area, they would find us soon. Through the dim, green sparkle of my goggles, I spotted what seemed to be the silhouette of 2nd Lt. James Salka leading his team forward. He was one of the first Marines I met before the mission. I committed his stern face and piercing green eyes to memory in case I needed to find him during the mission. It did me little good now in the darkness. In any event, the shadowy figure seemed to be in charge, so I tottered forward to snap off a few camera shots. It was Salka. A communications antenna rose off the back of the Marine next to him and cut into the deep blue glow of the morning sky. He gripped a radio handset and studied his map under a dim light. The photos didn’t turn out in the dark, so I fell in line with some Marines watching the perimeter. I killed the power to my night vision and flipped the device atop my helmet. Most of the Marines had already done the same in the security positions around Salka. He gave his platoon a few moments to set up supporting positions with snipers and machine gunners, who could cover us as we moved through the open field. Daylight broke the horizon. We pushed. CONTACT Intelligence reports stated insurgents were using the bazaar as a front to move lethal aid in Nad Ali District, so we were conducting the interdiction operation alongside Afghan National Army Commandos to try and disrupt their activity. The area around the bazaar was a patchwork of dirt homes and barren, muddy fields. Cover was scarce at best. I could see a handful of shallow irrigation trenches, barely deep enough to cover a small child lying on his stomach. I wondered how much manure littered the fields. I could smell it. It looked like a miserable place to get shot at. At daybreak, Bravo Company started to patrol from the landing zone to the bazaar. I fell in line

Kyle Klingaman, a scout sniper with 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, provides cover for a group of Marines moving across an open field during an interdiction operation against insurgents near the Bari Gul Bazaar, Nad Ali District, Helmand province, Afghanistan, Dec. 4. The interdiction force landed by helicopter during the cover of night and began sweeping through the area with the help of Afghan forces and interpreters before engaging Taliban fighters in a firefight that lasted nearly four hours. with Sgt. Steven Pendleton’s assault squad as they shuffled into the damp field. Our boots slid across the mud with each step. A layer of heavy sludge began to weigh down my feet. That sick, sweet smell of manure lingered. Lance Cpl. Nathan Chandler, a machine gunner, and three or four Marines under Salka moved in behind us. The crickets and roosters that echoed across the desert only minutes earlier were suddenly silent as we moved across the field. The sound of machine guns ripped the silence. Several insurgents began firing to our left, so the Marines in the front of the patrol crouched low and ran to a nearby house. Lance Cpl. Nathan Gulbronson was running in front of me with his M32 grenade launcher sticking out of his pack. He decided the house was too far away, so he juked, sagged to his knees, and let his body fall prone into the dirt. I slid into one of the shallow irrigation ditches. I could no longer see Salka or the Marines. Chandler was still behind me, cheek nestled against his machinegun, screaming out for a smoke grenade. Rounds zipped and cracked over our heads. Chandler and Gulbronson shouted back and forth to run or stay put? Their packs were heavy, gear cumbersome, and it was nearly 100 yards to the compound. There would be no moving without support. A smoke grenade landed in the field and spit a green cloud between us and the shooters. Bravo Company’s snipers and machine gunners fired back at the insurgents. Fire over the field slackened. We ran. FORWARD An hour earlier, we were smoking our last cigarettes in the dark just off the flight line. It was a pleasant enough December morning for Afghanistan. Now my lungs burned as my legs pumped against the soft soil. My bootlace snapped and released tension around my right foot. I barely noticed. Chandler and Gul-

bronson hunched under the weight of their packs. Gulbronson wrangled his grenade launcher and rifle with both hands in an awkward lurching motion. Chandler cradled his machine gun against his hip, left arm swinging his weight forward. His combat pack sagged with spare ammunition. It looked backbreaking. Our ungraceful race ended against a dirt wall 20 yards from Pendleton’s squad. They were still tracking down enemy shooters and preparing for an assault on another compound when we finally linked back up. We walked through a small doorway, a shambled, metal sheet that served as an improvised gate which rattled each time a Marine passed through it. I heard voices coming from the courtyard of the compound. Our interpreter was speaking with the homeowner to see what he knew about the insurgents. The firefight had caused me to lose all sense of time. It felt like noon, but was only 6:30 or 7 in the morning. In any case, the sun was still rising. I hoped the glare from the east was hitting the insurgents still firing into the field. By this time, helicopters in the air reported insurgents were massing around our position. The area was almost empty of women and children, who had either fled or hunkered down inside their homes. Pendleton gathered his squad to move to the next building. They loaded high-explosive rounds and fired their grenade launchers at a shooter before sprinting from the compound. Pendleton and his Marines dashed into the open, which sparked a brief burst of machinegun fire that quickly dwindled. I bounded with the second team at a full sprint. CASUALTY Pendleton set his Marines to clear another compound. For the next 30 minutes, Marines sifted the area for any signs of insurgency. Marksmen posted at doorways and along walls to watch

for insurgents as explosive ordnance technicians searched for lethal aid. To the south, Salka continued to patrol behind us in an effort to reinforce our squad. From the doorway, I watched as Salka and his Marines bounded across the open field. Machinegun fire echoed out as the Marines ran toward us with gear strapped to their shoulders. Enemy fire continued as they sprang forward in tenmeter dashes and dropped to the ground, using their body armor to absorb their impact with the soil. I saw Lance Cpl. Indy Johnson bounding forward when a round struck his helmet. He dropped to the ground, momentarily dazed but unharmed. He collected himself and resumed his movement toward cover. MEDEVAC Nearly an hour into the firefight, a call came across the radio that a Marine had been hit. I knelt inside a small, walled-off garden when a surge of gunfire rang out in the distance. I didn’t know it at the time, but Bravo Company was providing suppressive fire as a team of Marines ran into the open to grab the injured Marine. They dragged him back to cover and immediately began first aid. Salka relayed the injury of the Marine over the radio-gunshot wound to the abdomen. Salka requested a medical evacuation and a helicopter was inbound within minutes. Each squad of Marines held their positions and prepared to support the evacuation. The fields around the bazaar fell silent as the medevac moved in to pull out the wounded Marine. As the helicopter made its approach, the insurgents concentrated their fire in an attempt to shoot it down. Streams of bullets from AK47s and machine guns erupted from compounds around the area. Lance Cpl. Brian Schaeffer was posted at the south end of the building held by Pendleton’s squad. The fire seemed to come from around the corner as Pendleton slid

in alongside Schaeffer in an attempt to pinpoint its location. The two Marines peered out, shoulder to shoulder. The helicopter banked hard to avoid the incoming rounds and flew around the landing zone for a second pass as Pendleton and another Marine fired their grenade launchers to provide suppressive fire. On the second pass, the pilots decided to land. A WAY OUT By the time the helicopter landed, Pendleton had already rallied his team to continue forward. He squeezed himself into a doorway to check if the path was clear for his men. Another Marine climbed atop an empty oil drum and peered over the wall. Nothing moved. The squad shuffled out of the building, ran along the outside wall and stacked at the northernmost corner of the compound. With the casualty evacuated, we pushed north before enemy fighters could regroup. One by one, the Marines stepped into the clearing and headed to a nearby compound, where they eventually linked up with the rest of the platoon. We still had nearly two miles to patrol before we reached our extraction point. For the next three hours, we pushed further into the bazaar, and enemy fire became less organized. We stopped at the final compound before pushing our way out of town. Bravo Company paused long enough for the Marines to suck down some water and burn a cigarette. Riflemen collapsed against dirt walls for a few minutes rest. EXTRACTION As we left the bazaar, insurgents once again attempted to pin us down in an open field. Helicopters flying overhead provided cover fire for the Marines, killing one insurgent fighter, as the Marines took shelter in a building. By the end of it, I was pretty exhausted. We had been running, crawling, walking and running again in full gear for more than twelve hours. We

had patrolled nearly four miles of the district and zigzagged in and around the bazaar for who knows how many more. We spent almost four hours under constant fire from the enemy. The energy I got from the bag of gummy bears I ate for lunch was gone. Evening loomed as Bravo Company streamed out of the village and converged on the extraction point to wait. Dusk settled over us as we finally slipped back onto our helicopters under the cover of darkness. I was thankful for the thrum of the CH-53. The beast of a helicopter jetted superheated air over my shoulders as I boarded and searched for a seat in the dark. I trusted its raw power and the three .50 caliber machineguns bristling along the fuselage. Salka climbed on the helicopter with the last group. He was clearly proud of his men. I spoke with him afterword. Even in the chaos of the fight, he said they made his job easy. He led, and they all knew what had to happen when things got rough. Before the patrol, he told me to just do my thing and follow the Marine in front of me. I broke one camera lens, damaged another. My boots reeked like a zoo. But I didn’t have to fire a single round. Author’S NOTE: It’s the details that get lost or shuffled about. I sat down to speak with some of the Marines after the mission, including Lance Cpl. Indy Johnson, who took the round to his helmet, in an effort to stay as true to memory as I can. Everyone made it out that day, and 2nd. Lt. James Salka firmly believes the swift action of his men saved the wounded Marine’s life. The battalion confirmed its suspicions of insurgency in the area by finding evidence of weapons caches. Even more telling was the organized resistance they stirred up around the bazaar. As for the wounded Marine, he is expected to recover.

‘Warlords’ welcome new commander Lance Cpl. Scott Whiting 2nd Marine Division


pproximately t h r e e months after returning from deployment, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, welcomed a new commanding officer at a change of command ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 10. After serving as the battalion commander since April, Lt. Col. Steven M. Wolf relinquished command of 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines, to Lt. Col. Joel F. Schmidt. Marines and sailors

from the battalion gathered at Marston Pavilion with friends and family of the commanders to witness the ceremony. Wolf, who helped coordinate the Black Sea Rotational Force deployment for the battalion, thanked his family for standing by him through thick and thin. He thanked the Marines who were in leadership roles over him throughout his career, and the staff noncommissioned officers he had the pleasure of working with, who taught him as well. “I’ve had the great fortune of having some great SNCOs,” Wolf said “Their outstanding leadership has helped me through everything and made my job im-

mensely easier.” Schmidt also thanked his close family for their continued support, and he explained the importance of having good Marines in the battalion. “Even though this is a change of command ceremony, it’s not about the commanders,” Schmidt said. “It’s about the Marines. We’ve been at war for more than 10 years, and it’s about the Marines.” Wolf is departing to attend the College of Naval Warfare in Newport, R.I., and Schmidt is taking command of 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines, after working as Photo by Lance Cpl.

REACH offers Wounded Warriors promising futures Lance Cpl. Justin A. Rodriguez

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The Marine Corps motto of Semper Fidelis reigns true for those participating in the Reintegrate, Educate and Advance Combatants in Healthcare program at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital. The REACH program assists wounded service members transitioning from active duty to the civilian work force obtain skills for employment. “This program is giving Marines an opportunity to succeed and still be connected in serving those who serve,” said Navy Capt. David A. Lane, commanding officer of the CLNH. The program, which is a joint initiative between the Navy Medicine’s Total Force and the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, gives participants a unique venue to continue federal employment in a medical field post military. Each program participant transitioning from the military to the civilian job force is assigned

a mentor from various medical specialties who provides training, education and coaching. The REACH program offers 14 career field opportunities at the CLNH. Some fields include dental assistance, diagnostic radiology and medical record management. “I don’t think anyone ever expected this program to be so big,” said Kevin Kesterson, the Camp Lejeune REACH program career coach and retired command master chief of the CLNH. The REACH program recently celebrated its second anniversary in November and hopes to keep providing these opportunities for years to come, said Lane. “This program has made sure Marines’ dreams have come true,” said Staff Sgt. Bradley Whitwell, a patient with Wounded Warrior Battalion. “They’ve given amazing opportunities to Marines who want to serve in the medical field after getting out.” For more information about the program or to see if you qualify, call 459-3493.

Marines trade tanks for golf carts


Cpl. Donovan Lee

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marines with 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, conducted tank maneuvers and tactics using golf carts at the Paradise Point Golf Complex, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 10. Charlie Company tank commanders utilized golf carts to practice tactics at the platoon and company level. The golf carts enabled 2nd Tanks to conserve money and manpower. If they had used actual tanks for the training, they would have needed eight square kilometers and 4,000 gallons of gas, according to 1st Lt. Graham Johnson, Charlie Company executive officer. “By conducting the training using golf carts, we were able to train on doctrinal formations and the fundamentals of fire and maneuver in less than one percent of the space needed for tanks,” said Johnson. “As for fuel, we did not need any logistical support, since the golf course provided everything at no cost. Ultimately, we were able to take what would have been a major muscle movement for the company and trim it down into the bare essentials.” While at the golf course, the tank commanders reviewed the standard operating procedures and the thinking process when conducting tactical decisions. “The training not only provided us with the opportunity to put these skills to practical use, but it also allowed for the practice of command and control at a higher level,” said Capt. Jeffery Potter, Charlie Company commander. Tanks require a lot of space and resources to conduct training. Although not a traditional training method, utilizing golf carts to employ tactical training allowed the battalion to save money, resources and allowed for easier mobility. The Marines have conducted training at the platoon level, but the Camp Lejeune terrain proves challenging when operating at the company level. This training is valuable, because it provided the opportunity to put all of the platoon pieces together into a company maneuver, said Johnson. Overall, the golf carts are an effective way for the Marines to get invaluable training. It allows them to simulate live maneuvers on a scale in which corrections could be made easily, according to Johnson. “By using the golf carts out on the range, we were able to scale everything down to a size that still allows us to rehearse our tactical employment,” said Potter. “It takes the effort of the entire company and support from the battalion to conduct company training when utilizing our tanks. Using the golf carts allowed us to complete valuable training while minimizing the burden on the masses.” “The ability to train company level maneuvers is vital, and the opportunity to hone the skills of the tank commanders is invaluable,” said Potter.

Have you seen the masked men? They can be spotted in many of the fitness centers or running along the trails on Holcomb Boulevard aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The devices covering their faces are reminiscent of comic book villains, and upon first glance, equally as frightening. But, they’re not here to take over the city or to exact revenge. They’re conducting altitude training. Altitude training, also known as hypoxic training, involves exercising in areas with oxygenreduced air. In the past, this training was done at locations with altitudes at least 8,000 feet above sea level. As technology developed, training ee Nelson Photo by Desir

Speckled trout come up short

We’ve been spiked. No, I’m not talking volleyball. I’m talking immature juvenile speckled trout, most of which are in their first year of existence. Perhaps you’ve noticed this recent abundance of spotted sea trout in the eight to 13-inch range. As you may remember, a few years ago, after two closely timed winter fish kill events, marine fisheries imposed a moratorium in trout harvest followed by a 14-inch minimum size and reduced bag limit, currently at four trout per day. This was based on the growth curves and biology

of the spotted sea trout. In their second year, these spikes will reach a minimum of 14-inches. The legal fish we are allowed to harvest usually would have spawned at least once by then. That being said, most of the speckled trout being caught at the usual locations are still throwbacks. This is true at the Cape Lookout Rock Jetty, Fort Macon Jetty, Radio Island beach are rife with spikes. The same goes for the Bogue Banks Surf and the creeks and marshes throughout Bogue Sound, behind Bear Island, over to Brown’s Inlet and up into the White Oak River. There have been occasional keepers, as well as some trophy fish caught. South River along the Neuse has had quality keepers consistently. Baits include the live baits of shrimp and mud minnows, as well as some of the great imitation and very realistic plastic shrimp. Last week, I fished at the White Oak River and Bogue

Sound creeks where the spikes are in abundance. Last week, I fished the surf from Black Skimmer Road in Emerald Isle to Bogue Inlet. Although there were birds and dolphin feeding close to the beach, all I could find were throwbacks. That goes for about 4.5 miles of the beach from Black Skimmer to Bogue Inlet. Interestingly, the very next day when I was on Bogue Pier getting my daily water temperatures, I observed the menhaden equivalent of a mullet blow. As far as I could see in both directions there was a black ribbon of menhaden streaming along the surf. The ribbon looked to be anywhere from 50 to 100 feet thick from the beach on out. Later that day, I got a note of keeper trout being caught from the Emerald Isle surf just west of Bogue Pier. A day late and a buck short, as they say.

The 4th annual Advanced Infantry Training Battalion Toys for Tots Fun Run began with the horn blast from a P-19 fire truck, at the School of Infantry – East, aboard Camp Geiger, Friday. Participants huddled at the starting line bundled in scarves and mittens as they prepared to run in support of the Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots program, which donates toys to less fortunate children “Our run allows us to help the less fortunate children during the holiday period,” said Justin Bellman, operations officer for the AITB. “The intangible benefit is that our young Marines can do something for the community with their young children, teach them at a young age how to be selfless.” Service members along with their families and other participants dropped off donated toys in the iconic Toys for

Tots bins before the start of the run. Three of the bins were filled, collecting 55 toys in total. The event kicked off with the children’s short run, where Skylar Hunt finished in first place, followed by Baylor Metcalf in second and Alex Miller in third. Each child received a gold medal upon completion of the run. “In the past we’ve had families come out,” said Timothy Dremman, commanding officer for AITB. “This is the first year we’ve had a kids-specific run and I think it was a success. The kids enjoyed themselves.” Marines sporting “boots and utes” and “rainbow PT” gear, along with family members, participated in the 5K portion of the run. One team carried a dummy-filled stretcher; others ran with strollers and pets. Bellman competed in the race, as did his daughter, Kennedy Bellman, who rode comfortably in an ALICE pack,

Devilpups optimistic despite 33-65 loss Desiree NelsoN Sports editor

The Lejeune Devilpups lost against the Trask Titans, 33-65, at Lejeune High School aboard Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune, during the Toys for Tots basketball game, Friday. Regardless of their best efforts, the Devilpups fell behind in the first quarter and were unable to recover. “Despite the loss, the team really meshed,” explained Jeff Carr, junior varsity coach for the Lejeune Devilpups. “This was our first game as a full team and I’m proud.” The Devilpups managed to pull it together in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Titans, but that wasn’t enough to win the game. Gunner Parsons, forward center for the Devilpups, scored 11 points, a season high. He gained seven points in the first half before being taken out during the third quarter, after getting cramps in his leg. He returned shortly after, scoring an additional four points. The standout player, according to Carr, was AJ Bowman, point guard for the Devilpups. “His leadership skills are as good on the court as they are off,” said Carr. Still fueled up from Friday’s game, the Devilpups

met on Saturday for an unscheduled practice, led by Bowman. They worked on their weaknesses and prepared for their upcoming game. Carr attributes the loss to the relative inexperience of the Devilpups versus the Titans, whose players have had 3 to 4 years experience playing organized basketball. Despite the loss, the Devilpups are optimistic for the rest of the season. “It took them some time to get their sea legs,” said Carr. “But they’ve got them now and we’re ready.” The game raised donations for the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program. “It’s a fantastic program,” said Carr. It’s done well and it’s a charity you can trust.” The Toys for Tots program is considered a toprated charity, with over 97 percent of donations going to their mission of providing toys for less fortunate children, while only 3 percent is dedicated to fundraising and overhead costs. Since Toys for Tots began in 1947, over 400 million toys have been donated to more than 188 million needy children.

training from 1b facilities were created to mimic these conditions. Today, we have elevation masks, tents and Hypoxico training systems, which despite their villainous appearance, have been shown to be highly effective and significantly more convenient. The basic theory behind altitude training is by exposing athletes to lower oxygen levels, or hypoxia, the body will adapt to compensate for the lack of oxygen. “It helps the body to be able to utilize the oxygen within your system better,” said Christy Pastor, lead personal trainer at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center, aboard Camp Lejeune. “The oxygen ratio is less the higher you go up in altitude. The air becomes very thin. It forces the body to create more red blood cells which relay oxygen to the body quicker.” The decreased oxygen forces the respiratory system to work harder to deliver the necessary oxygen levels to the body by creating additional red blood cells. This leads to stronger respiratory muscles, improved athletic performance, pre-acclimatization to altitude, higher endurance levels and overall physical performance. “After my body got used to working out with the mask,” said Piero Porcheddu, a hypoxic training user. “Running without it felt as though I could run longer and breathe better.” Hypoxic training can also protect you from mountain sickness, which Pastor says, can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea and even sleep issues. Regardless of its many benefits, Pastor warns that like many types of training, it needs to be practiced consistently. “If you don’t use it, you lose it,” she said. “You need to practice it on a con-

stant basis to maintain the benefits.” The Wallace Creek Fitness Center offers nine weeks of hypoxic training. Prior to this, a ten minute fitness test is given to ensure the client is healthy enough to participate. Once the client is medically cleared, they can begin training and expect to see results right away. “After about a week of regular use, I started noticing results ... stronger lung capacity and better endurance,” said Porcheddu. According to Pastor, the benefits will be apparent in all aspects of life. Users can also expect increased energy levels and faster recovery times. The training system itself consists of a compressor, which can be set to mimic altitudes from 6,000 to 12,000 feet, the mask, which is very similar to a CPR mask and functions the same, and the neoprene apparatus that attaches the mask to the head. The compressor can be moved around so it is accessible to most pieces of cardio equipment within the gym, allowing users variety in their workout. Hypoxic training first came to light at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico, which sits 7,349 feet above sea level. Speculations were made about the affects the altitude would have on the athletes. Judges were astounded when finishing times for endurance events fell drastically below record standard, and anaerobic, sprint events broke records. These games ultimately led to investigations into altitude training with a focus on avoiding underperformance. “It’s a wonderful tool that I’ve used myself,” said Pastor. “I can see the benefits. Ten minutes on the Hypoxico feels like 30 minutes of cardio. It’s definitely challenging and beneficial.” For more information about hypoxic training or to set up an appointment, visit or call any fitness center.

Children set off at the starting line for the 4th annual AITB Toys for Tots Fun Run at Camp Geiger, Friday. This was the first year the event included a kids-only run. toys from 3B strapped to his back throughout the run. While the 5K participants pounded the pavement, children decorated Christmas ornaments and kept cozy with warm beverages and snacks in a nearby AITB building. “The run is only a small part of this day,� said Bellman. “Giving a toy to someone who is less fortunate is on everyone’s mind.� The AITB plans to host the event again next year, and in years to follow. The Toys for Tots foundation was founded over six decades ago in 1947, when Maj. Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine reservists, collected and delivered over 5,000 toys to needy

children in the Los Angeles area. The idea originated when Hendricks’ wife made a doll and asked him to deliver it to an organization that donated toys to needy children. After determining no such place existed, Hendricks created the Toys for Tots program. Since then, the foundation has distributed over 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. “The biggest thing with the event was that it was an opportunity to build camaraderie,� said Dremman. “But, more importantly, it was to raise toys for needy families throughout the community.� For more information about the Toys for Tots foundation, visit or email

However, after the FDA and the establishment try to stop his worthwhile and profitable mission, Ron forms the highly successful Dallas Buyers Club, a lucrative business, whose members share the struggle for dignity and acceptance. While in the hospital, Ron befriends the mesmerizing Rayon, a transsexual fellow AIDS sufferer, portrayed by Jared Leto (“Chapter 27,” “Lonely Hearts,” “Lord of War”), who becomes his unlikely ‘partner in crime.’ Jennifer Garner (“The Odd Life of Timothy Green”) plays the fearless and compassionate Dr. Eve Saks, who tries to help Ron, even though her hands are tied.

Matthew McConaughey (“Mud,” “Magic Mike,” “The Lincoln Lawyer”) stars as Ron Woodroof, a real-life Texas rodeo cowboy working as an electrician, who likes living hard and tough. Ron is a typical redneck, a racist and extreme homophobe, who leads a care-free and unexamined existence which comes to a screeching halt, when in 1985 homophobic Dallas, he is diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron is now shunned by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines. Not willing to accept a death sentence, Ron begins taking the Food and Drug Administration-approved AZT, the only drug legally available in the U.S. which makes his illness bearable. Ron, taking a crash course in AIDS research, decided to take matters into his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world. Always the hustler, he obtains drugs both legally and illegally, working around the system to help other AIDS patients get the

‘For the Leathernecks III’ brings laughter to Lejeune AshLey Torres lifestyles editor

Marines and sailors will surely fill the seats of the Camp Lejeune Base Theater to enjoy an evening full of laughter and entertainment provided by the Marine Corps Community Services’ Single Marine Program, Friday at 2 p.m. “For the Leathernecks III” Comedy and Entertainment tour, will be arriving aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune for its third year. This program brings a variety of singers, comedians and a DJ to the stage, providing a night full of amusement for local service members. According to official sources, this event is designed to be an opportunity for Marines and sailors to take a break from the rigors of their daily stress and to build unit camaraderie. Even the show’s motto is: “If you are not a Marine or sailor, this show is not for you.” “I like that it brings talent, not only comedy, but singing and other talents for Marine and sailors to come watch and enjoy. It’s exciting to see them clapping and interacting with the show,” said Susan Goodrich, branch head for the Camp Lejeune Single Marine Program. This unique tour introduces various performers who have been seen on television, won awards and who are sure to bring lots of energy, personality and entertainment. DJ Big Mike, Michael Sanders, will open the show by pulling service members up onto the stage, allowing them to participate in the show. Sanders is a host and DJ who can be heard on 101.9 KISS FM on weekends. Comedians Tom Green, Ronnie Jordan and Darren Carter, are sure to fill the theater with laughs as they kick

off the show. Green is known for hosting his own Internet talk show called “Tom Greens’ House Tonight” and was seen on the “Late Show” with David Letterman in 2003. Jordan has been a part of the Miller Lite King and Queens of Comedy Search Tour and has been featured on numerous television shows. Carter has also become a popular name and has performed in shows around the world and several times for Snoop Dogg and his family. Keri Hilson, who received two Grammy Award nominations, will end the show with her singing. She has collaborated with Kanye West and Ne-Yo; her album “In a Perfect World” made an appearance on the Billboard 200 album chart and more. “Senior leaders were pleased with the content and delivery of these events and recognize these outlets as an opportunity for their Marines and sailors to decompress and unwind,” said Seabrease Morsi, recreation program manager, Semper Fit and Exchange Services Division. “This program has and will continue to help build morale, espirit de corps and cohesion amongst service members.” The tour puts on 27 shows bringing entertainment to many Marine Corps installations. The tour will be returning to Camp Lejeune May 9 and Aug. 22. “Through Single Marine Program council meetings, focus group studies, OSD-driven studies and assessments, and Single Marine Conference working groups, the same issue has been addressed year after year. That issue is the need for quality entertainment,” said Morsi. To save a seat for the performance and for more information contact your Single Marine Program coordinator or call 451-4642.

Food Industry Serving Heroes Foundation, hosted a Heroes Dinner event aboard the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Dec. 11 to honor 19 individuals from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group and recognize the impact of their valiant efforts. The dim lights and live jazz band provided a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for all in attendance that evening. Laughs and smiles filled the room as guests arrived, dressed in sharp business attire, and began socializing with one another, enjoying drinks from the bar and indulging in an assortment of gourmet Hors d’oeuvres. “I can tell you from the bottom of our hearts, it’s an honor to be here,” said Paul Chapa, founder of FISH. “Tonight is not about anything but our heroes. We food guys are in a very interesting position. This is our seventh Heroes Dinner we have done for the Marines and this Heroes Dinner is about our service members.” Brig. Gen. Edward D. Banta, the commanding general of 2nd MLG, began his opening remarks by introducing the 19 honorees. “Tonight is special,” said Banta. “Tonight is an opportunity when we can give back to the Marines, sailors and family members who give so much on a regular

basis. We don’t get a chance to say thank you enough and we have been given the opportunity to do so courtesy of Paul Chapa and his organization, FISH.” Celebrity chef Rick Tarantino made his presence known when he prepared a five course meal for the 19 service members and their families. “I promise they will see some good food tonight,” said Tarantino. “We are preparing a lot of food, so save room for it all.” His opening course was crab-stuffed mushrooms over capellini pasta, followed by an arugula salad with cranberries and goat cheese tossed in bacon vinaigrette. The entrée was a rib eye steak with roasted potatoes and chopped carrots. An intermezzo consisting of cheese wedges with shoestring pear frites and raspberry drizzle cleansed palates before diners enjoyed a fresh blueberry and raspberry pastry with cream dessert. Food service Marines assisted Tarantino in the preparation, cooking and plating of the meal. After the five-course meal, the spouses received orchids flown in from Chicago before the night’s festivities concluded. “I didn’t serve, but I have four daughters and two grandsons and I’m grateful for each and every one of them and what they do each and every day,” said Chapa. “My kids and grandkids are in great hands when there are people like (these honorees) asking nothing but to serve.”

Volunteers spread around the room providing joy through games and crafts. Marine volunteers helped children pin the nose on Rudolph, and the Harriotte B. Smith Library staff provided crafts and cookies as the children congregated for holiday stories. “It’s an opportunity to give back; it’s a nice thing to do and I love being around kids,” said Lance Cpl. Gylil Rice, 2nd Supply Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group. Following dinner, children sat around Santa’s chair as the volunteers led caroling. They clapped and sang “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Jingle Bells,” taking turns sitting on Santa’s lap. “Having all the different people working together is a great thing; it shows teamwork,” said Ashley Whalen, MCCS recreation attendant.

Gunny Claus spreads Christmas cheer, visits military families LanCe CpL. Justin a. RodRiGuez marine Corps base Camp lejeune

Assigned to the 1st Reindeer Division, Marine Corps Base North Pole, Gunny Claus visited local service members and their families to spread Christmas cheer at the USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center, Saturday. More than 300 service members and their families shared their wish list with Gunny Claus and his patented Dress Reds over breakfast. Since 2002, Gunny Claus has visited numerous Marine Corps Installations, giving back to the Marine Corps during the holidays by comforting children with deployed parents. “The Marine Corps is about family,” said Claus. “When I started doing this, I decided putting the uniform back on could display a familiar uniform and hopefully comfort the children. The most popular request I get is children asking for their mom or dad to come back from a deployment.” Gunny Claus proudly wears his scarlet and white uniform, signifying the colors of his counterpart, Santa Claus. His chest is adorned with medals signifying the wars Marines have fought during Christmas since 1918. His service stripes signify the amount of years Marines have been away from their families over the holidays.

“He does an amazing thing for the Marines and their families during the holidays,” said Staff Sgt. Jose M. Nieves, Distribution Management Office staff noncommissioned officer in charge with Headquarters and Support Battalion. “He’s a Marine, and he takes care of us as any fellow Marine would. He does nothing short of bring joy to the military community during the holidays.” Gunny Claus has already visited more than 11,000 children this year. “My kids are excited to see Gunny Claus,” said Nieves. “The familyfriendly environment brings all of us closer together during the holidays. It’s good to see Marines helping each other out.” Gunny Claus and the 1st Reindeer Division’s goal is to support the many children of service members serving in harm’s way. Some children who visited Gunny Claus even declared him cooler than Santa, promising to visit him every year. “Marines are family to one another,” said Gunny Claus. “This is my way of serving the community. Seeing the smile on the children’s faces makes it all worth it.” For more information on Gunny Claus or to see his schedule, visit www.

headstones throughout Arlington National cemetery, in Arlington, Va., were adorned with wreaths during Wreaths Across America Day, saturday. Fifty Marines and sailors from Marine corps Base camp lejeune traveled to Arlington National cemetery through a single Marine Program trip to take part in the event.

Marines, sailors honor fallen one wreath at a time lANce cPl. JAckeliNe M. Perez riVerA marine Corps base Camp lejeune


ore than 50 Marines and sailors with Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Single Marine Program meticulously placed dozens of wreaths honoring a few of the thousands buried throughout the white gravestone-dotted hills of Arlington National Cemetery during Wreaths Across America Day, Saturday. Service members traveled to Arlington, Va., America’s most hallowed ground, to pay their respects and reflect on the lives and experiences of service members from conflicts past and present. “Seeing all of these gravestones, a small fraction of the sacrifices made, makes you appreciate being an American,” said Capt. Michael Madia, the commander of Marine Special Operation Regiment’s Headquarters Company. “It’s humbling. It puts everything into perspective.” Placing wreaths on the graves was a moment of reflection for the participants. Even if the families of the deceased were not there, the service members were not forgotten, said Madia. Many of the deceased have been interred for decades or centuries, and have no immediate family to honor their memories. “They sacrificed before us

and laid the foundations,” said Madia. “Even if it was two hundred years ago and you may not be able to read the marking on the headstone, their sacrifice still affects us.” It was a trip that hit close to home for Madia, who took time to honor his uncle, a veteran buried at Arlington. He felt the trip was a way to pay his respects in a military capacity. The SMP group was just 50 out of the thousands of civilians, service members and celebrities who visited the cemetery to show their support. “It felt unreal,” said Lance Cpl. Ernesto Fragoso, a field artillery cannoneer with 2nd Battalion, 10th Marines Regiment, 2nd Marine Division. “You hear and read about (Wreaths across America), but to actually experience it was very inspiring. It made me think about what I’m doing and what I’m contributing.” Fragoso placed a wreath on the grave of a Marine he did not know. “I knew a Marine was being honored,” said Fragoso. “Even if I didn’t know him, I know his sacrifices weren’t for nothing. He is still being remembered.” It was an experience that could not be found anywhere else, said Pfc. Austin Williams, a student with Marine Corps Engineer School. “There’s no way to feel this without being here and seeing some of the lives sacrificed for our freedom,” said Williams.

Pvt. chad Neuzil, a student with Marine corps combat support service schools, wipes off Medal of honor recipient richard o’kane’s headstone in Arlington National cemetery Arlington, Va., after placing a wreath under it during Wreaths Across America Day, saturday. o’kane served as a rear admiral in the Navy and was awarded the Medal of honor during World War ii. When he placed his wreaths down, he took a moment to think of the individuals and thank them, Williams added. “There was a lot more to this trip than I thought I could ever imagine or feel,” said Williams. The Marines also visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during the trip and

explored other historical sites and monuments. “This is something I’ll never forget,” said Pfc. Jamie Neal, a student with Marine Corps Engineer School. “It’s shocking how much you can learn from one trip.” For more information about the Single Marine Program, visit www.mccslejeune. com/smp.

The holidays can be a great time to enjoy festivities, good meals, family and friends. The holidays can also be a hard time. Suicide rates increase during this season. Many deal with the stresses of grief, low income, bad family relationships and the myriad of other problems that can arise during this time of year. Here are some helpful tips to make the holidays enjoyable. 1. Limit spending - Giving gifts is a great idea, but going in debt over the holidays is going to leave you stressed out in January. Set a budget on your gift giving and leave it there. If it is too late for this year, it is never too early to start planning for next year. 2. Spend time with those who are less fortunate - Find organizations who are giving away a Christmas meal and volunteer your time. You will be blessing a family and in return be blessed because you are giving back to the community. 3. Focus on the things that are going right - During the holiday season you will find things can go wrong, if you focus on those things, it will leave you depressed. Focus on the things going right in your life. It will give you a positive attitude and outlook. 4. Avoid drinking excessively or at all - Alcohol will worsen feelings of depression and may interact with any medications you’re taking. 5. Focus on your faith during the holidays - Many of us come from varying faiths. During the holidays, we will be celebrating in various ways. No matter what your faith background is, it could be a good time to strengthen your own personal faith. I hope you have a great holiday season and from my own faith tradition, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas.

The Uso of North carolina Jacksonville center will be delivering cookies during their operation cookie Drop to service members on duty, aboard Marine corps Base camp lejeune and other nearby military installations Friday.

Thousands of homemade cookies donated by community members are expected to be delivered by the USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center, to troops aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and other nearby military installations, Friday. For the USO, Operation Cookie Drop is an opportunity to provide merriment to troops working on duty. Community members dedicated time to bake homemade cookies and other treats in an effort to help the USO deliver some holiday cheer to troops who may not have the opportunity to be with their family during the holidays this year. “I think it’s nice we do something for troops on duty; they work so hard and the mission for the USO is to boost morale for service members and their families,” said Shea Blair, coordinator of the Jacksonville USO. “It

can be a hard time of the year for some of them and a wonderful time for others; we want it be a wonderful time of year for all of them.” Thousands of cookies and other goodies have been donated and are ready to be packaged. About 20 volunteers have signed up to be a part of the cookie packaging party. This event joins the community and the USO together to bring joy to troops who may not have the ability to spend the holidays with their families. “It is another accomplishment to our mission to helping military families,” said Marisa Reeder, assistant director of the Jacksonville USO. “It’s an opportunity for the community to donate cookies in cute little bags with sticky notes, and volunteers deliver them.” A Christmas dinner will be provided by the USO on Christmas day to continue their mission of providing joy to military families. For more information on how to donate or volunteer, call 4513411.

Warlords protect Bastion, Leatherneck, Shorabak CPL. LIA ADKINS

Regional Command Southwest

With fighting season well underway and in preparation for Ramadan, the Warlords of Company F, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, were in a high operations tempo to counter a possible increase in insurgent activity. Theunit,whosemissionistoprotect Camps Bastion, Leatherneck and Shorabak, recently conducted three consecutive operations to disrupt enemy activity in Helmand province – Operations Kodiak VI, Grizzly II and Dragon’s Teeth. The ongoing operations entail intelligence-driven missions, clearing missions or a mixture of both. In an intelligence-driven mission, the Marines search to identify or contain specific targets. In clearing missions, they search for caches of weapons or explosive materials. The Marines traveled on foot for all three operations, thoroughly searching compounds for any signs of weapons caches or possible labs of explosive materials. Although the Marines didn’t find any weapons caches, they did collect residue samples for testing and were able to contact local elders for information about suspicious activity in the area.

Regardless of

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
