GLOBE Serving Camp Lejeune and surrounding areas since 1944

THURSDAY JULY 28, 2011 20





nder a bright, yet o ve r c a s t Carolina sky, ceremonial platoons representing Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Marine Corps Air Station New River and other factions under the Marine Corps Installations East banner gathered for a change of command ceremony which transferred leadership over East Coast Marine bases and stations. Maj. Gen. Carl B. Jensen, commanding general of MCIEAST, relinquished his position to Col. Thomas A. Gorry, brigadier general select, in front of family, friends and fellow Marines at the 2nd Marine Logistics Group Amphitheater aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, July 22. “(Gorry)’s reputation is superb and he will take good care of the bases and Marines now under his charge,” said Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, who was in attendance. “As for (Jensen), he has done what we all tell young Marine officers to do. Here, you have put your fingerprints on all of the projects that have made this base change for the better, but for everything you have done throughout your career, we thank you for being faithful right to the very end.”

Jensen, who has been the CG for MCIEAST since July 30, 2008, came into his position after serving as deputy commander and chief of staff for U.S. Marine Forces Command in Norfolk, Va. Since graduating The Basic School, Jensen entered flight training to become a naval aviator in 1977, and for the past 36 years has faithfully served his country and Marine Corps around the world with multiple deployments in support of Operations Desert Shield and Storm, Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. “It has been my singular pleasure and pride to be a U.S. Marine and having retired after overseeing MCIEAST,” said Jensen, holding back a few tears. “I am not all that excited to be leaving, but it’s time for me to turn this over. There is one thing I would like to say on the way out the door, and that is I have been, am now and forever shall be a U.S. Marine. Semper Fidelis.” Under Jensen’s command, MCIEAST has undergone various radical changes, both aboard MCB Camp Lejeune and the other installations from Marine Corps Air Facility Quantico, Va. down to Marine Corps Support Facility Blount Island in Jacksonville, Fla. He has overseen more than 135 military construction projects valued at more than $3 billion, as well as a $300 million regional energy plan, that featured the landfill gas to

energy projects aboard Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Ga., to the installation of solar and thermal panels on housing units aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. For the retirement portion of the ceremony, Jensen was awarded with a Distinguished Service Medal, certificates of appreciation from President Barack Obama and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and the Order of the Longleaf Pine from Bev Perdue, governor of North Carolina, making Jensen an “ambassador extraordinary” of North Carolina. “We served together for two of the three years I was here, and I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor,” said Lt. Gen. Dennis J. Hejlik, commanding general of Fleet Marine Forces Atlantic; Marine Corps Bases Atlantic and United States Marine Corps Forces Command, of Jensen when he served as CG of II Marine Expeditionary Force. “He has compassion and a sincere appreciation for all the Marines under his command, and since his first assignment as a ground safety officer (with Marine Light Helicopter Squadron 167, Marine Aircraft Group 29, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing), he has continuously stood out among his peers.” Gorry, who comes into the position as commander of MCIEAST, holds four college degrees with a Marine Corps career that began in 1986 as a ground supply officer with Brigade Ser-

vice Support Group 1, 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade. Gorry comes to MCB Camp Lejeune following his previous assignment as the director of the Command and Staff College, Marine Corps University. “I am honored to take command of such a prestigious position following Maj. Gen. Jensen,” said Gorry. “I am excited to lead you all and will ensure the highest levels of support are given to the various tenant commands aboard the base.” Following the speeches, the past and current commanders of MCIEAST were invited to stand next to Gorry for a pass and review of the troops. Jensen and Gorry were joined by retired Maj. Gen. Robert C. Dickerson, first CG of MCIEAST from 2005 through 2008. Col. Daniel J. Lecce, commanding officer of MCB Camp Lejeune, marched elements of MCB Camp Lejeune past the three with Col. Jeffrey M. Hewlett, commanding officer of MCAS New River, following with Marines from MCAS New River. With the evening’s ceremony concluded, Jensen readies himself to return to civilian life he once enjoyed 36 years ago as Gorry steps up to lead half of the stateside Marine Corps forces. While Jensen is leaving the main gate of MCB Camp Lejeune for the last time as an active-duty Marine, he will continue in the spirit of his service as MCIEAST continues with a new leader.

fghan Uniformed Police officers and local workers from the district of Delaram worked through the night to confiscate and seize nearly 300,000 pounds of illegal poppy seed, July 22. A partnered patrol, consisting of the Delaram AUP and a Police Advisor Team from Regimental Combat Team 8, discovered the cache in the local marketplace, July 20. “This discovery by the AUP represents a tremendous blow to the illicit economy and a significant setback to the finances of insurgents,” said Col. Eric M. Smith, the commanding officer of Regimental Combat Team 8. The Afghan district governor of Delaram gave the order to his police force to seize and confiscate the cache later that morning, according to Lt.

Sakhi, commander of the Delaram AUP. “Counternarcotics operations and seizures are governed by the laws and authority of the Afghan government,” said Smith. “Our partners in the district government of Delaram made the right call. Their ability to complete this seizure demonstrates their ability to participate in the counterinsurgency fight.” The AUP moved methodically through the marketplace, searching shops for the identical 200-pound bags with green and red markings containing the poppy seed. Shops containing the poppy seed were marked with spray paint to allow for a rapid removal by hired civilian laborers. A red checkmark indicated a shop free of the illegal seed, and an “X” indicated that the contraband was contained within. After the shops were identified, local workers began the laborious task of SEE POPPY 11A

Marines and sailors with Combat Logistics Battalion 7, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), routinely conduct foot patrols to mitigate insurgent activity so that road repairs can continue. “The patrols are being pushed out for security purposes,” explained Staff Sgt. Thomas J.

BaseLegal Base Legal By M.S. Archer

House considers child custody amendment to SCRA Many deploying service members are also parents. Some are engaged in child custody litigation with their estranged or former spouse. Representative Mike Turner of Ohio is concerned that deployment will cause such service members to lose custody of their children. Accordingly, he has proposed an amendment to the Servicemember Civil Relief Act to protect troops. However, some staunch military supporters say that the proposed change will be counterproductive, hurting rather than helping service members. The so-called Turner amendment to the proposed National Defense Authorization Act for the upcoming fiscal year, says that if a judge issues a custody order based on a military deployment, the custody arrangements existing prior to the deployment must be reinstated unless the court finds that doing so is not in the best interests of the child. The proposed law also declares that deployment itself can not be a factor in determining the best interests of the child in setting or modifying custody rights.

Not surprisingly, organizations comprised principally of state officials oppose the legislation, as it limits the authority of state court judges. Thus, we see the opposition of such groups as the National Governor’s Association and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. However, other groups also oppose, including the National Military Families Association and the American Bar Association committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel groups with a long history of supporting and advancing service members rights. The ABA LAMP and others claim that there are very few, if any, cases in which service members lost custody due to deployment. Such a drastic change to the federal law, they argue, with potential unintended consequences, is therefore not warranted. Furthermore, family law has long been an issue reserved for the states, which have vast experience in this area. Indeed, some 40 states have already passed military custody protection acts, some of which go further

than the Turner amendment would. For example, North Carolina enacted a custody statute, NC Gen Stat 50-13.7A, which already provides the same protections of the Turner amendment and, in addition, authorizes a court to allow a deploying service member to delegate any visitation rights he or she may have until return from deployment. Further, the state statute expedites custody hearings at the request of a service member who wants to resolve custody issues prior to deployment, and allows service members to testify in custody matters via telephone or other electronic means. Such state protections should be encouraged and expanded. Perhaps the most damning criticism of opponents of the Turner amendment is that it will inevitably involve federal courts in custody cases, thereby greatly increasing both the complexity of the case and its cost. Expect a lively legislative debate on this topic in the foreseeable future and, if enacted, some interesting developments in military child custody cases.

Camp Leatherneck opens new education center PETTY OFFICER 2ND CLASS JONATHAN CHANDLER Regional Command Southwest

A new education center opened in Helmand province with the help of University of Maryland University College, July 18. The new center can accommodate as many as 32 students. The University of Maryland University College will offer four classes in the inaugural semester: American History, Western Civilization, United States Government and

Understanding Movies. Each class is four hours long, lasts for eight weeks and worth three semester credits. “Education is part of a (service member’s) benefits, and when able to take advantage (it) provides them (with) a break from their normal routine to further their education,” said Professor John Nolan. “We would love to have our classes get to the point where we have to split the class in half because too many students have enrolled, but we understand that each (service member)

has a mission to carry out first.” “I think this is great that they opened the center for us (service members). That way we can get a jump-start to either start our education or further it along,” said Sgt. Sean Smith, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion. The goal is to have at least 15 students for each of the four classes with hope of offering more classes in the future, said Nolan. “It is always a great pleasure to help give those deployed a chance to further their education. It is a great honor,” said Nolan.

Marines in Afghanistan strive daily to defeat insurgents and support development efforts. Some end up paying the ultimate price, giving their lives for their fellow Marines. These warriors come from all walks of life throughout the United States to join the Marine Corps, well aware of the sacrifices they may face. They share a powerful bond created through shared experiences and dangerous missions – it is a tight-knit family. Lance Cpl. Travis Moldovan lost a fellow brother-in-arms recently when Cpl. Michael C. Nolen was killed in action while conducting operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Moldovan said the loss has been painful, as it has undoubtedly been for Nolen’s family at home, but the Marine’s sacrifice is a symbol of selflessness and bravery that inspires Moldovan to press on with his mission each day. The squad automatic weapon gunner with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward) was there during the enemy attack that ended Nolen’s life, and he remembers the tragic event all too well. The two Marines were out on a patrol with the rest of their squad when they found several improvised explosive devices and contacted an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team to safely dispose of the IED. Nolen, who was a team leader with the squad, led his team away from the area. They went through an alleyway into an open courtyard, where they began to take enemy mortar fire. As they maneuvered toward the direction where the enemy assault was coming from, Nolen and Moldovan decided they would get into a better position to engage the enemy. “I set (into position) and he set in five meters next to me, and that’s when he hit (an IED),” explained Moldovan. “I tried to keep him conscious, and even my squad leader was gripping his arm to try and keep

him awake.” According to Moldovan, the squad leader kept yelling, pleading with Nolen to stay awake. Nolen responded positively. Their efforts to save him kept him alive until a helicopter came to medically evacuate him. “It was heartbreaking to see that (helicopter) fly off,” said Moldovan. “I didn’t know if he was going to be OK, but I could only hope for the best.” He now carries Nolen’s dog tags with him around his neck and hopes to give them to Nolen’s younger brother when he returns to the United States. Moldovan said he knows how much the young man idolized the fallen Marine. “That’s what’s so hard, man, is that his younger brother idolized him. (Nolen) would always show us pictures of his little brother wearing his gear,” he said. Moldovan said he hopes to return to the United States and meet the entire Nolen family, but until then, he still has a job to do. “Everyone knows what risk they’re going to take when they put their name on that piece of paper,” said Moldovan, referring to the decision to join the Marine Corps. “All we can do now is hit the ground hard and (combat the insurgents), you know, because it’s people like (Nolen) who remind you of what you’re really fighting for.” Nolen’s fire team consisted of Moldovan and four other Marines. He led his fire team on more than 60 combat patrols and located more than 12 IEDs since they deployed in February. All of his hard work was highlighted during his memorial ceremony as Marines stepped forward to comment on the man he was and his impact on those who knew him. During the ceremony, Moldovan ended his personal reflection with the following: “If I could just let Cpl. Nolen know he was a hell of a guy, he really was. He was relentless, hardworking and always put his Marines before anything. He was my friend and will always and forever be my brother.”

Military Working Dog platoon completes Afghanistan tour PETTY OFFICER 2ND CLASS MATTHEW SNODGRASS Regional Command Southwest

Man’s best friend has a long history of serving in military operations, and now the Marines of Military Working Dog platoon, Military Police Support Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group (Forward), can add their names and those of their dogs to the list. The platoon wrapped up a sevenmonth deployment in support of operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan, July 3. For the Marines of the MWD platoon, the missions that they and their canine partners undertook, made the difference between life and death for many service members. “We participated in a multitude of missions, successfully completing 71 improvised explosive device finds,� said Master Sgt. Frank Ginn, the platoon’s kennel master. “This is a new record high for our platoon during a deployment.� In addition to the IED finds, the dog handlers also completed several human-tracking missions. “The platoon participated in 14 person searches, which resulted in five insurgent captures,� said Ginn. “In comparison, when we were here in 2009, we had only three insurgent captures during our deployment.� The successes came at a cost. The Marines and their dogs faced danger every time they set foot outside the wire. “Four of our platoon members got purple hearts during this deployment,� said Ginn. “But all our guys survived and have all their limbs. We’re extremely grateful for that.� Their four-legged partners were not so lucky. Two military working dogs were killed in action during the platoon’s tour. “Both dogs were killed locating IEDs and keeping their teams safe,� said Ginn. “They died doing their job.� Several of the MWD platoons have been recognized for their bravery in combat. Staff Sgt. Charles Rotenberry, assistant kennel master and chief trainer for the MWD

David Pond, a handler with the MWD platoon, also helped save the life of a fellow Marine. “Once we had stabilized the IED victim, I helped secure the landing zone and cleared it of other IED threats with my working dog so the airlift (medical evacuation) could land,� he said. “When something like that happens, you do what you have to and carry on with the mission.� Capt. Mark Bailey, the commanding officer of Military Police Support Company, II MHG, said he is very impressed with the quality of leadership the MWD platoon had during

their deployment. “My noncommissioned officers are absolute professionals, who mentored the platoon into a hard working team that goes the extra mile,� said Bailey. “Ginn and Rotenberry are both highly motivated dog handlers who have a lot of experience and years of training.� One factor that contributed to the success of the deployment was the specialized training the MWD handlers got from Ginn. “Ginn has deployed here before and knew there were things his handlers needed to train specifically for their missions out here,� said Bailey. “Their intensified training definitely paid off with the successes the handlers had in the field.� For the Marines of the MWD platoon the mission has come first during their deployment. As the platoon returns to life at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, many are grateful for the mission successes and the safe return of everyone in the unit. “Everyone out here has a lot of courage, from the dog handlers to the combat engineers we go on patrols with,� said Rotenberry. “We’re just proud to be part of an effort that has so many committed individuals who put the mission before all else.�

Retiree Corner with Randy Reichler

Assistance for dealing with devastating disease

Last week I had a retiree admitted in the hospital for a cardiac condition. His wife has dementia and needed the care of her 42-year-old son. Three times she called the police because she confused him with a kidnapper. This was a heart-breaking scenario. Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimers is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thought process and behavior. Memory impairment, as well as problems with language, decision-making ability, judgment and personality, are features often witnessed with the disease. Alzheimer’s is not a part of aging naturally. There are several predictors of the disease such as having a blood relative who developed Alzheimers or having a combination of genes for proteins that appear to be abnormal. Risk factors increase if you have long-standing high blood pressure, history of head trauma or if you are female. There are two types of Alzheimers, which are early onset and late onset. In early onset, symptoms first appear before age 60. Although less common than late onset, it tends to progress rapidly and it can run in families. Late onset is the most common and develops in people over 60. Late onset can also be genetic. Discuss this subject now with family members and do some family member research. If you notice you are forgetting common things, familiar people, daily functions, have difficulty with language, memory, per caption, emotional behavior or cognitive skills, seek medical screening. Retirees who have Alzheimers or have a spouse with it can use TRICARE for medical diagnosis and assistance. Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune and Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society have visiting nurses who can offer limited assistance. For retirees specifically, Veteran Affairs has facilities within the state that can offer bed spaces and nursing assistance. Caregiving for an Alzheimers’ patient can be a complete time consuming task. This disease is tormenting and very frustrating to families who must deal with it on a daily basis. For further information on assistance with Alzheimers or respite care, please contact the Retired Assistance Office at 451-0287.

Calendar Second and fourth Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. - Survivor/Caregiver Support Group Meeting at DAV Hall at 300 Sherwood Road, Jacksonville, N.C. Aug. 9 at 10 a.m. - Base Retiree Council will meet in the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune library conference room.

Female Marines reach out to Afghan women during operation CPL. KATHERINE KELEHER II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)

Service women with Female Engagement Team 13, in Sangin District, Helmand province, laced up their boots, filled up their water sources and set out on patrol in support of first platoon, Company B, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, and the Afghan National Army, July 14. The Marines and their Afghan counterparts set out on the nine-hour patrol with two objectives: help rid Sangin of insurgents and build relationships with the local populace. “We conducted a blocking position, which would catch all of the locals that were trying to get out of the coordinated search that was conducted by (Company C, 1st Bn., 5th Marines) and the ANA,” said Sgt. Juanita Towns, the FET-13 team leader. “1st Bn., 5th Marines and the ANA’s mission was to disrupt enemy movement so they could try and catch some known Taliban fighters in the area. FET was to search local females and to do engagements with the women, to find out what was unusual in the area.” The company-sized operation helped Towns and Lance Cpl. Jacqueline Veres, also with FET-13, make ties and talk to more than 40 women and their children. “We’re the voices for these women. They are (more than) 50 percent of the population here in Afghanistan,” Towns explained. “We try to decide what’s going to benefit them without disrespecting their culture, as far as education for the little girls, giving them schools, or as far as putting a woman in a government position here.” Throughout the day, the two Marines patrolled through the mud, creeks and

A corpsman with first platoon, Company B, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, talks with children in Sangin, Helmand province, while on patrol, July 14. The platoon escorted Female Engagement Team members Lance Cpl. Jacqueline Veres and Sgt. Juanita Towns so the team could talk to local women about schools, medical care and training midwives. cornfields in more than 100 degree temperatures. They went from home to home, talking to local women and asking what FET could do to improve their lives. “We help the 1st Bn., 5th Marines and ANA guys by searching the women because they can’t touch or speak to the women,” Veres explained. “Every single person we talk to, we try to build a relationship with them. Then when we go back to them later, they usually remember us and they know we’re friendly and we’re not there to hurt them. Patrols like this are good for building trust with the locals.” While Towns and Veres were with first platoon, their sisters-in-arms, Petty Officer 2nd Class Amanda Richeal and Lance Cpl. Chandra Francisco, both with FET-15 in Sangin, pa-

trolled with third platoon, Companies A and B, 1st Bn., 5th Marines and ANA soldiers. The two teams combined talked to more than 100 women and children throughout the day. “The women in that area said they don’t see that many female Marines, so they need to get more accustomed with us so they know we’re here to help them.” Francisco said. “I hope they come out to shuras we have … because they seemed very open and friendly. I think we could definitely build really good, long lasting relationships that FETs to come can build off of.” Building trusting relationships with the locals of Sangin has proven to be particularly important for FET teams in Sangin. While other FET teams located throughout Hel-

mand province are involved in projects such as building schools, teaching Afghan women how to generate income in ways such as sewing, and generally helping Afghan women get their voice out in the public, it is a different story for the teams in Sangin. The current mission for coalition forces in Sangin is to secure the district center. Until the town is secure, progression and growth will be a slow and steady process, Veres explained. With security still being the main mission for Marines within the Sangin area of operation, the FET team works closely with local women to gain their

trust. Through the trust they gain, they obtain information about how many schools can be built in the area, or how they can best teach local women to make their own income. These patrols are just one way coalition forces are moving toward securing Sangin. “(Coalition forces) found spliced limp cords, a pressure cooker with a battery pack inside, that can be used for (improvised explosive device) making material, and Company C found a few IEDs that were detonated,” Towns said. “(Findings) like this save the lives of the Marines out there and the local nationals.

“The day was a success. They detained local national IED emplacers, found IED-making material, detonated IEDs, and FET got to interact with the local women. All of these things are part of the (counterinsurgency) mission.” The four troops with FET are more than halfway through their deployment, and look forward to returning to their families in the United States this upcoming fall. Until then, they will continue helping coalition forces conduct counterinsurgency by reaching out to the rest of Afghanistan’s untouched population — the women.

Afghan children curiously stare at the Marines patrolling through the streets. The area was infested with insurgent forces just a few months ago. According to a linguist with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward) the local residents slowly returned to their homes with the increased security and feel safer knowing the enemy threat has virtually faded.


Marines make reality out of ‘Mehraj’ CPL. MARCO MANCHA 2nd Marine Division (Forward)


very drop of sweat from their foreheads cools their faces as Marines patrol through the Afghan heat. Every cautious step through the cratered terrain and dusty roads is a step closer to completing the mission. Every hour spent standing watch brings them closer to the sweet smell of homecooked meals or catching the big game on a Monday night. The Marines with Company K, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division (Forward), brave the hardships of enemy attacks and improvised explosive devices to force the insurgents out of their area, making it a safer place for the local citizens. They do it for the love of

their country, friends, family and each other. Marines like Lance Cpl. Kyle Wilcox said it’s difficult to put into words, but he knows the importance of the job he’s here to do. He said he fights for the betterment of this war-torn country and for his fellow brothers in arms lost trying to do the same. “I’m out here just doing my job, you know, and I’ve seen what these insurgents are capable of. They harass the (local) people, threaten them and steal from them. So by us getting rid of them, it makes these people’s lives easier,� said the squad automatic weapon gunner with the unit. “(The guys and I) just want to make this a better place for these people to live, and I will continue to pursue this for the guys who gave everything trying to do the same.� Wilcox’s unit has been out here for more than

four months and has put in more than 600 hours of dismounted and mounted patrols and stood watch in excess of 125 days. One considerable accomplishment for them was building an observation post atop a hill about a mile and a half from their original patrol base. The post was built with three wooden watchtowers and a berthing area for the Marines to rest in. One Marine said he takes great pride in it because it was built with nothing but small combat shovels, barriers, wood and Photo by Cpl. Marco Mancha sweat.

Motor T provides lifeline in southern Afghanistan PETTY OFFICER 1ST CLASS GINO FLORES Regional Command Southwest


he Motor Tr a n s p o r t platoon of Task Force Belleau Wood plays an essential role in intelligence as well as the supply lifeline of the forward operating bases near Camp Leatherneck on a day-to-day basis. The platoon, often referred to by Marines as “Motor T,” is tasked with being ready to transport supplies, equipment and personnel as needed throughout the unit’s areas of operations in Helmand province. This Motor T platoon is different, and must be almost entirely selfsufficient, said Staff Sgt. Bryan Thrift, the platoon’s assistant convoy commander. “We run our own trucks, security and communications independently, whereas other logistics platoons operate with the combined support and coordination of other units in order to stay on mission,” said Thrift. “We (manage) everything internally that is organic to the platoon.” The platoon transports the supplies that sustain Task Force Belleau Wood’s detachments and personnel at forward operating bases. The convoys move essentials such as food, water, fuel and ammo. “You can’t go anywhere or do anything if you don’t have motor transport (deliver),” said Thrift.

The platoon uses a combination of cargo and mine-resistant, ambush-protected tactical vehicles in its convoys. They pre-plan their missions to identify the least hazardous routes and potential hotspots of insurgents activities. “We gather the latest intel, analyze and plan the routes prior to going outside the wire,” said Staff Sgt. David Yeingst, the platoon’s convoy commander. “We are also involved in escorting VIPs and other operations where we do our own security foot patrols,” added Yeingst. The unit has also conducted searches in villages in its area of operations and found weapons cache and detained insurgents, he added. The hazards of the area means the Marines must always practice situational awareness. Their convoys shake, rattle and roll off the beaten path in the desert between villages and fields, always on the lookout for improvised explosives and suspicious activity. “We make our own path out here,” said Lance Cpl. Gary Weisgerber, a turret gunner and driver with the platoon. “This is my first tour of duty. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.” On the average mission the platoon encounters several suspicious items or potential IEDs that get reported for further investigation, Yeingst said. While every mission is planned, sometimes the path leads to a road less traveled.

A Day’s Drive

Cruise the day away

Belle of Topsail provides unique experience to patrons of all ages “I have just received a call from the bridge operator. There have been pirates spotted on these waters,” booms the voice of Captain David Luther over the loudspeakers aboard the Belle of Topsail. No, this isn’t the Carolinian coast of the 1700s, though the boat’s passengers still let out shouts and shiver with fear as the word “pirate” makes its way through the crowd. For the last four years, the Belle of Topsail has set sail on cruises, only to be raided minutes after this warning has been called out and the ship has set sail out of the Beach House Marina, located at the swing bridge in Surf City. Long the number two tourist attraction on Topsail Island, second only to the beach, it is easy to see why the Belle of Topsail and its pirate cruise were finally named the number one attraction on Topsail Island last year. The Belle of Topsail is a 55-foot replica of an 1880’s riverboat. Wedding white with Valentine trim, she’ll stay forever young. For those who choose a night of dancing and dining on the Captain’s sunset dinner cruise, there is plenty of time to revel in the beauty of the Belle and the play of sunlight on the rippled waters of the intracoastal waterway. While guests take in the scenery, they dine on jumbo shrimp cocktail, chicken wings, pasta salad, a fajita bar, and veggie, fruit, and cracker platters. For most who step aboard the

Belle, there are bigger fish to fry, or in this case, bigger ships to soak. Captain Luther lets all aboard know that the pirates of Topsail will go after three things— rum, gold, and red-heads, all of which can be found aboard the Belle. The pirate ship is spotted, and with its Jolly Roger flag flying in the wind, all hands on deck knew the pirates meant business. The pirate ship fires out a warning shot from its cannon, and heads straight for the Belle. As the pirates close in on the Belle, its loyal passengers never go down without a fight. The water cannons on both the Belle and the pirate ship “Raven” erupt as the two boats cross paths. Suddenly without

warning, the Raven rounds the Belle and the pirates quickly begin to climb on board. As they ramble up the stairs in search of treasure, Captain Luther is quickly tied up by one of the female pirates in the posse. After several minutes of bantering back and forth with each other and the crowd, the pirates take claim of what they have been searching for—the ship’s treasure chest. After passing out some of the treasure to all on board and ensuring passengers appease their own captain, the pirate’s are off the boat in a flash. Captain Luther assures the crowd that this is not the end for the pirates, and sure enough, the Belle of Topsail is on the Raven’s tail.

The final encounter allows for the Belle to get her vengeance in one last water battle. As the Belle rushes past the Raven, both sides take aim. After the final brawl, the Belle and Raven have just enough time to enjoy the oceanspray and the view before they are back at the dock. Following landing, passengers can head over to the Raven for pictures on board with the pirates. During the trip, six kids accompany the pirate’s on the Raven in their search for treasure. While aboard, the kids learn the ropes of pirating, and become a part of the pirate show. They work alongside the local professional acting team that make up the pirate

posse, and they are given the opportunity to “shoot” the cannons and “drive” the Raven. In addition, their new eye patches, swords, bandanas, tattoos and pirate names will allow them to fit right into the lootin’ lifestyle of their pirate instructors. If you and your family think you’d enjoy a little pirate confrontation, join the Belle of Topsail for its pirate cruises— Monday through Friday at 2:30 and 4 p.m. On Wednesdays and Thursdays an additional pirate cruise runs at 1 p.m. The trip is $20 per person. A children’s cruise is also offered on Fridays at 1 p.m., featuring “Captain” Tiger, the circus dog. In addition, the Raven takes up to six visitors out for one hour cruises on Saturdays and Sundays. Cost for this six person trip is $200. With lower salon and upper open air decks, there is no limit to the ways you can experience the intracoastal waterways with the Belle of Topsail. A former military member, Captain Luther welcomes the military community and families to come aboard, and offers a 10% discounted rate on select cruises. The Belle sails ten months out of the year, but can fill up quickly during the summer months. Call the Belle of Topsail today at 910-328-1621 to reserve a spot to see Topsail Island via the area’s number one attraction. It’s a delightful trip that the family will never forget.

Saving blood, saving lives

2nd MLG blood coordinator changes blood distribution SGT. RACHAEL MOORE 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)

The Marines and sailors of 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) are known as “warriors sustaining warriors.” They ensure troops at forward operating bases and combat outposts have the supplies they need to continue combat operations. Recently, one sailor made a change to a routine resupply, which resulted in approximately a 30 percent decrease of wasted blood. Petty Officer 2nd Class Joshua D. Croxton, the blood coordinator for the 2nd MLG (Fwd.), restructured the way blood is distributed throughout Helmand province, Afghanistan. “We had blood getting destroyed because it wasn’t being used,” explained Croxton. “I had to find out how we could save or use the products to the best of our ability, while keeping the products at an acceptable level to maintain readiness at our Role I Shock Trauma platoon and Role II Forward Resuscitative Surgical System facilities.” Croxton, who has worked with the American Red Cross Blood Donation Program and Armed Services Blood Program in the past, had no problem diving in when this issue came to light. “I’ve learned many people don’t want to donate because they think blood is wasted or not used,” explained Croxton. “I wanted to debunk that thought as well as save lives with the blood we have on hand.” With those intentions, Croxton began researching the amount of blood that was expiring at outer-lying forward operating bases, which came to an average of 100 units of blood. “I cannot say exactly how many lives the blood can save,” said Croxton. “One Marine could need all 100 units, or 100 service members could need one each. It just depends on the injury.

“There is no set amount given to any patient, but I think it’s safe to say any life saved, be it one or 100, is one or 100 that get to go back home,” Croxton added. After he completed his research, Croxton proposed an idea that would bring blood products from Role I and Role II facilities back to Camp Bastion’s Role III facility. “We’re bringing the soon-to-expire blood products back to (Camp) Bastion because the majority of the surgical patients come through there,” explained Senior Chief Petty Officer William Brown, the medical operations leading chief petty officer with 2nd MLG (Fwd.). “They have a higher blood product usage rate so they’re more likely to use the blood than the more distant FOBs.” The change in distribution wasn’t dramatic; in fact it’s very similar to a routine resupply. A routine resupply is conducted by requesting blood products from Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, who receives the blood from service members in Afghanistan or organizations in the United States. “The difference is ‘when,’” explained Croxton. “Now, what we do is ask for the resupply sooner than later.” Normally the blood would be returned to Camp Bastion for disposal, once it expired. Now it comes to Camp Bastion’s Role III facility before expiration and gets used. “This is going to help increase the survivability of the (service members) who sustain any degree of bodily injury or traumatic blood loss,” said Croxton. “It’s going to give them the blood they need to return home to their families and friends.” “This change optimizes the blood product we have not only in our area of operation, but in theater,” conPhoto by Sgt. Rachael Moore cluded Brown. “It really does Petty Officer 2nd Class Joshua D.

Improvised explosive device strike brings father, son closer SGT. JESSE STENCE Regimental Combat Team 1

Courtesy photo

Master Gunnery Sgt. and Lance Cpl. Frank Buchanan share father and son time aboard Camp Dwyer, June 5. The master gunnery sergeant is the communications chief of Regimental Combat Team 8, and the lance corporal drives a Huskie bomb detection vehicle for Route Clearance Company, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion here.

By the time I had the radio to my mouth, the whole truck exploded.” Lance Cpl. Frank Buchanan, didn’t see the improvised explosive device until the last second. Buchanan was the lead of a four-vehicle convoy dispatched by Route Clearance Company to recover two downed vehicles in the desert of Nawa District, Helmand province. As his bomb-detecting Huskie vehicle rumbled over a sandy berm, he suddenly spotted the 80-pound IED, but

couldn’t stop in time. When his father, Master Gunnery Sgt. Frank Buchanan, heard about the strike, he feared the worst. Ironically Frank, the communications chief of Regimental Combat Team 8, had been looking forward to a visit. When he received orders to RCT-8 and learned his headquarters would be less than an hour’s flight from his son in Camp Dwyer, he was happy. This, however, was not the visit he had hoped for. The news was frightening. An IED blast blew off the rear wheels of his son’s Huskie and damaged the cabin. The only way out was through the roof, but because of neck and back trauma from the blast, Lance Cpl. Buchanan couldn’t get out by his own power. Sgt. Carlos Boquin, his squad leader, had to pull him out. Lance Cpl. Buchanan doesn’t remember much more about the scene of the strike. He recalls boarding a medical evacuation flight, then waking up in a hospital bed and peppered by questions from an attentive medical staff. When his father received the news, he quickly got permission to fly to Camp Dwyer. “I sit here and wait on that phone call all the time, and when it came, the life just drained out of me,” said Frank. For Frank, parental fear is a complex emotion. It’s aggravated by the twinge of remorse that many military parents feel, for the former drill instructor missed much of his son’s childhood while serving the Corps. He missed his son’s birth while deployed in support of Operation Desert Storm — he estimates that he’s missed all but nine years of his son’s life. He used to be able to tell himself, “I’m doing this to keep my family safe,” until an unexpected phone call three years ago. While he was “watching pirates off the coast of Somalia,” his wife explained that his son, who had a scholarship to become an automotive technician, decided to enlist instead. “I was doing all the bad things so he wouldn’t have to, and now here he is,” mused Frank. Anxiety abounded as the master guns caught a late night helicopter flight to Camp Dwyer, but by the time he arrived, his son’s situation had improved. Lance Cpl. Buchanan had been transferred to the Wounded Warrior Tent, where Marines

rest after they have been deemed stable and no longer in need of urgent medical assistance. Miraculously, Lance Cpl. Buchanan came away with nothing more than a mild concussion and neck stress. Frank found him resting on a green canvas cot, appearing tired but generally healthy. His neck brace, resembling a white foam collar, was the only indication that anything was wrong. He wore it when walking, but moved naturally, without any noticeable signs of pain. “The sense of relief when the whole body was there …” said Frank, his voice trailing off. “The sense of relief — there was no way to tell it.” The ensuing conversation immediately convinced him that his son was sound in mind and body. Lance Cpl. Buchanan recalled: “He popped his head in (here) in the morning – asked me if I needed anything. The first thing I asked for was cigarettes. He had to jump through hoops (to get them), because they keep on running out at the (Post Exchange).” After scrounging up smokes, Frank spoke to his junior Marine and firstborn son. Who knows what was actually said. According to Frank, Buchanan men aren’t much for expressing emotions. The father and son trail off when they get to close words like “love,” but according to Lance Cpl. Buchanan, there was a time when they barely spoke to each other at all. He wryly recalls his father’s “drill instructor phase,” when his parents apparently functioned as a chain of command, and half seriously remarked that messages for dad had to be routed through mom. “Now, I’m not only his son, but also his brother,” said Buchanan. “There are things he can talk to me about now that I wouldn’t hear before.” And although Frank frequently worries about his son, he is rendered speechless by the swelling pride he feels when he sees a younger version of himself carrying on the Buchanan legacy. Lance Cpl. Buchanan has made a full recovery and is now back with Route Clearance Company, supporting 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion. “I would rather get hit a million times than to see one of my guys get hit once,” said the Huskie driver. “You could take my left arm, and I would still want to get back in the truck.”

Diaz, a combat engineer with CLB-7. “I think the most important part about our patrols is they can see we are present in the area.� Continuous foot patrols in the area

limit insurgents’ ability to set up ambushes and explosives along the routes, ensuring the safety of the engineers as they continue to repair roads throughout the district.

POPPY FROM 1A removing each individual bag and stacking it for transport. A smaller cache find on July 15, by a partnered patrol, netted 225 bags of poppy seed and “scoring sticks� indicating the poppy would be used for opium production, according to 1st Lt. Phillip Saunders, the officer in charge for the Police Advisor Team partnered with the AUP. This smaller find, combined with tips from locals, clued off the partnered forces to the large cache found July 20. The discovery of this “poppy marketplace� coincides with the traditional poppy planting season that begins in September. A total of 1,942 bags of illegal poppy seed were seized. Each bag weighed roughly 154 pounds, for a total of 299,689 pounds or 150 tons, making this one of the largest finds in recent years. Plans are in place to provide farmers, who would have purchased and planted the poppy seed to cultivate opium, with wheat seed, said Lt. Col. Daniel Wagner, the officer in charge for the 4th Civil Affairs Group detachment supporting RCT-8.

Runners take off at the start of the Run the Beach 8K at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Saturday.

RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor


here are those that say the best way to beat the heat is a day at the beach. Saturday, a run on the beach was just as popular. More than 300 runners took part in the third annual Run the Beach 8K at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The morning run was the 12th run of the annual Grand Prix Series hosted by Marine Corps Community Services. Despite the early morning start, runners still had to battle heat and wind as they raced up, down and around Onslow Beach. “(This race) is a little more difficult because you are running on the sand – there’s hard sand and soft sand,” said Mike Marion, event coordinator and race director for the Grand Prix Series. “It gives them a change of pace instead of just running on the road all the time.” The nearly five-mile run, which began on the beach and ended on Ocean Drive, included a treacherous sandpit at the turnaround point, which some runners described as “pure hell.” “I was mad,” said Jamar Davis, who finished third overall. “I was thinking, ‘Why would they do this?’ … It was challenging, but it was good.” “That turnaround point was pretty bad because it was about six to eight inches of soft sand,” added Matthew Hornacek. “So every time you try to push off, you just sink and pretty much stay in the same spot.” SEE BEACH 6B

2011 turning into summer of ‘same old’ Onslow Offshore With Dr. Bogus

Does the term “same old” mean anything to you? For the past week or so, the wind has blown from the southwest day after day. The ocean swells are three to six feet or more. The water is beyond a dry cappuccino (lots of foam, not much steamed milk) in color, full of weeds and 83 degrees. The sound has held at 86 degrees for days, with two-foot whitecaps, and is also dirty. Very dirty. Same old, same old. The fishing? Same old, too. The good news this past Saturday was I got to help out with the Onslow Bay Saltwater Fishing Club’s annual Take the Troops Fishing Day. The captains took out local Marines and spent a day on the water fishing, finishing off the day at Osprey Oaks Marina with a lunch of grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

Camp Lejeune were also given gifts of thanks for their service to our country, like T-shirts, fishing rod combos and more, donated by local businesses. I had some bumpy waters going out and back from the Beaufort Inlet area and fished mostly behind Shackleford Banks, trolling for Spanish and drifting for flounder without success. My friends and I also worked an area around the Atlantic Beach Causeway Bridge. All in all, we landed a bunch of small bottom fish, a bluefish and big needlefish, and ended up with a Spanish mackerel that went airborne and boated itself. It was the only Spanish we saw all day. And the “skiff ” ride back in to the southwest wind and whitecaps was memorable, pounding and wet to say the least. When things are settled down, the Spanish fishing remains

good, especially around the inlets - both Bogue and Beaufort including Bird Bi Shoals - although we couldn’t find them there. the The Spanish are eating small stuff, so ea at flies flie are working well as well we as speck jigs. The best bes fishing is early and late in the day and they really prefer clean and green water. Speaking about Beaufort Inlet, there are some sea mullet still there and gray trout, 14 to 17 inches, as well good-sized croakers in the Turning Basin. Nearshore (if you can get there from here), the flounder fishing remains good on the reefs and rocks. Inside, the floundering is slow as well as slow from the surf or piers, although I did get a couple of throwbacks on Sunday in the Emerald Isle surf. The surf is generally slow, but there are some sea mullet and other bottom dwellers around Fort Macon. Where are the surfin’ redfish? Inside drum fishing is generally slow, although there are some fish recently showing in the Haystacks, but the water is so dirty that the only thing that will get their attention is cut bait, preferably cut menhaden. It’s cheating, but they can’t see artificials right now. The Haystacks have also produced some decent sized specks on live shrimp as well. Piers are currently fishing what is mercifully called

summer slow. Oceana Pier has had blues and Spanish. Bogue Pier had few sea mullet, an occasional bluefish blitz, some sheepshead if you fish for them, and Spanish. No big ones (like king mackerel) this week. Seaview Pier reports a few nice fish, along with trout, sheepshead and flounder on live bait, and some Spanish. No big ones here either. Surf City truthfully reports terrible fishing, but when something comes in, it’s a nice one. They report a few small cobia, trout and flounder on live bait, blues, spots occasionally at night and you can still watch the tarpon roll, but it will not hit a bait. Jolly Roger had some better news. Certainly, there are tarpons-aleaping and even two releases this past week in the 80 pound range. There are some nice black and red drum above slot that have been biting for the last couple weeks as well as sheepshead. Offshore (again, if you can get to there from here) is good with billfish, sails, whites and blues being found from the Big Rock to the Swansboro Hole.

End of NFL lockout welcomed by all

Outspoken with Russell Varner Sports editor


e had all gotten tired of it. Even I, the diehard football fan, had to admit it. I was left begging and pleading for something to happen, for some different news to come out. Day in and day out for the past 130-plus days, we have had much of the same news about the National Football League lockout. The owners want this. The players want this. Neither side was budging. We were given the same news daily, with what seemed like no end in sight. It got to the point where yet another ‘will Brett Favre return to the NFL’ story reared its ugly head. With the dogs day of summer treading along at speeds that would make a snail look like a speed demon, no NFL offseason news and slow news coming from Major

Weapons Training Battalion: High Shooter, Stone Bay

League Baseball, it was a dark time for sports fans. Then, training camp reminded people the season was supposed to start soon, which meant preseason would be just around the corner. As some had predicted, a deal would not be finalized until they were really pushed against a deadline, unless something was truly at stake. The preseason and the millions of revenue it generates was on the line. That was all the motivation that was needed, apparently. But, if you are like me, you didn’t care how it got done, about the legal mumbo-jumbo, about who came out on top. All that you cared about was that the deal got done and that there would be football on Sundays this fall. Rejoice my friends. We were not disappointed. Football is back. It’s nothing against the MLB. It’s more against its schedule. Baseball gets the most interest in the first and last two months of the season. The months in between them suffer. So, the end of the NFL lockout brings us new news and arguably the craziest and most exciting week in NFL offseason history. Twitter will explode come Friday when free agents are officially allowed to sign with teams. It already nearly imploded on itself Monday when the first undrafted free agents


announced where they would be signing. For non-football fans, now they do not have to be bombarded with the same lockout news day in and day out. They can now find an escape from it. They can now watch their regular shows and newscasts without having to worry about the NFL lockout update. Even fans of the National Basketball Association can take solace in the news. Now, the NBA is in a similar position: locked out and with the players and owners on complete opposite sides of the world as far as a deal is concerned. But, the NFL’s deal can give hope that maybe, just maybe, the NBA can reach a deal in time so that we don’t lose many, if any, games this year. Anything is possible. Isn’t that right, Kevin Garnett? The National Football League is back. Major League Baseball’s trade deadline is just around the corner, which means it will be time to start paying attention to baseball’s divisional races very soon. Not to be forgotten, college football is also just around the corner, which also means college basketball and the National Hockey League seasons aren’t far behind either. The sun seems brighter. Food tastes a little better. Man, it’s amazing what a lifted lockout can do for your spirits.

Youth Sports Clinics beat heat with basketball, cheerleading camps RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor


ith the temperatures and heat index skyrocketing outside, the Youth Sports Clinics hosted by the Youth Sports Division of Marine Corps Community Services took their camps inside to fight the heat wave. Halfway through the four-week program, the Youth Sports Clinics hosted basketball and cheerleading clinics at the Camp Johnson Gym aboard Camp Johnson and the Area 1 Gym aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, respectively, last week. The clinics were created to give children a unique opportunity to learn about their favorite sports and enhance their skills, all while keeping children active and teaching them how to live healthy lives. At the Camp Johnson Gym, children ranging from 5 to 15 years old came together to shoot hoops and learn about the fundamentals of basketball, all while practicing the same way that their favorite National Basketball Association players do. “‘Train like the pros’ is our motto (at Athletes Global), said Desmon Brinkley, member of Athletes Global and the head of the basketball clinic. “I was on a pro staff at Hoops City U, which is in Durham, N.C. They have a gang of pro staffers that I learned from last summer. So I brought my skills down here and all the pro drills: two ball drills, tennis ball drills ... We use a lot of gadgets to (help) teach (kids) the fundamentals.” Despite the hot conditions in the gym, the campers came out eager to play and learn every day, which made the job much easier for Brinkley and his staff. Brinkley said that seeing the passion for the sport in the kids and helping them cultivate it was his favorite part. “I love to (teach) and have been doing it for six to seven years now,” he said. “It’s a great thrill because the kids bring a lot of energy, especially the young ones. They are always excited to learn new stuff.” Meanwhile, aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, a group of young ladies gathered daily at the Area 1 Gym to learn once and for all that cheerleading is, in fact, a sport. The girls did everything from jumps and stretches to dances and cheers, as they were constantly kept on their toes. “I make (sure) it’s very athletic,” said Danielle Tisdale-Young, the head of the cheerleading clinic. “They do a lot of strengthening. They are constantly moving. They have to do a lot of conditioning on top of their cheering (while still) learning the fundamentals … I wanted to teach them that (cheerleading) is a sport and it’s not just something cutesy, out on the field, that it’s hard work involved and they need to really move to get that exercise.”

Shonuf first baseman Karen Burroughs hits a double into center field during the Marine Corps Community Services Women’s Intramural Softball semifinals game against WomanPower at Harry Agganis field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. Shonuf beat WomanPower 23-2 to advance to the championship game against the Crush.

WomanPower’s plug pulled by Shonuf SGT. BRYAN A. PETERSON

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Throughout the softball season, Shonuf was noted as “arguably the team to beat,” as WomanPower was well aware of going into their semifinal matchup against Shonuf in the Marine Corps Community Services Women’s Intramural Softball playoffs. Well, Shonuf proved worthy of that title in dominating fashion recently at Harry Agganis Field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Taking a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the first inning, WomanPower seemed to not have any jitters, usually something that has plagued the team during the first inning of every game this season. Then, Shonuf stepped to the plate and from there, the jitters came back to haunt WomanPower yet again. Shonuf scored 17 runs in the bottom of the first inning and added another six in the second to beat WomanPower 23-2 and advance to the championship against the Crush. Shonuf beat WomanPower in a similar crushing manner back in May, 14-3, and the team’s player-coach Pam Henderson said Shonuf won this softball tournaments many times in the past, but that does not mean they think they will win every game easily. “We never take any game for granted, ever,” said Henderson. “We had some close calls this season and to be honest, any day can be any team’s day. But, we persevered today and I am just proud of all the players.” Henderson added that the players have played softball with each other for nearly 25 years, which is why Shonuf, as she put it, “plays really well together with almost no errors.” “Our players know when to hit and where to hit,” said Henderson. “(In) any given situation, we do what we have to do to make things work. We all work very well with each other.” WomanPower pitcher Mary Marshall walked the first three batters to load the bases for Shonuf third baseman Ashley

Mosby, who singled to left field to cut into WomanPower’s lead by one run. After two more walked batters, and a fielder’s choice that brought in two more runs, Lisa Chastain, Shonuf ’s shortstop, cranked a line drive into left field for two RBIs, extending the lead 4-2. WomanPower changed pitchers after Marshall threw her ninth walk, but that didn’t seem to solve their pitching woes. The new pitcher, Christina Serbus - who made her way to the mound from the outfield - threw pitches Shonuf batters could not resist. Karen Burroughs doubled to right field, bringing in two RBIs to make it a 10-2 lead. Shonuf knocked in seven more runs before right fielder Ivy White struck out to end the inning. Shonuf went through their batting lineup twice, with every player contributing to the score. In the top of the second inning, Shonuf made a pitching change. Mary Blair came from left field to replace Jessica MaCarthney, who went to play at the catcher position. Blair struck out the first batter, and the other two grounded out for a one-two-three inning – an inning that only saw 11 pitches. Adding to an already very comfortable lead, Shonuf put six more runs on the scoreboard to make it a 23-2 lead in the bottom of the second inning. WomanPower put a runner on base with an infield single in the next inning before three straight outs to end the game due to the one-hour time limit. Feeling confident, Shonuf is ready to play the Crush in the championship. The last time the two teams met, Shonuf came out on top, 6-1. Basically creating a dynasty by winning virtually all the of the softball league’s championships for the better part of the last 20 years, the Crush will have to deal with Shonuf ’s hard-hitting offense if they want to come out on top. “When we come to play, we come in expecting to win,” said MaCarthney. “We took second place last year and we definitely have built upon that. We will definitely work to come in first.”

CORTRAMID Marine week kicks off with MCMAP, pugil sticks CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


is body was jittery with anticipation, strengthening his white-knuckle grip. He blinked away the sweat from his eyes as he strained to see through the checkered mask that covered his face and, looking into the distance, spotted his target, which would soon be determined as either his predator or his prey. A shrill sound pierced the air, causing his body to react as if a bolt of lightning traveled through his limbs as he broke into a dead sprint toward his objective. Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps midshipmen clashed pugil sticks with the intensity of a pack of jackals during the first day of the Marine Week portion of the annual Career Orientation and Training for Midshipman East event, recently. The day also included a rigorous training regimen of Marine Corps Martial Arts Program training and runs through the obstacle course. “During the summer between freshman and sophomore college grades, Naval ROTC (midshipmen) are able to attend the CORTRAMID event,” said Maj. Jeff Pool,

Marine officer instructor for the Philadelphia ROTC consortium. “For four weeks, these midshipmen get to experience a wide berth of Navy and Marine Corps training aboard various military bases.” CORTRAMID East brings together 500 ROTC students from across the country, splits them into four groups of approximately 150 students each, and rotates them through Naval Station Norfolk, Va., Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga., and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, including satellite installations. These midshipmen are given hands-on experiences in the four fields of naval surface warfare, submarine warfare, aviation and the Marine Corps in general. However, the start of the Marine Week portion split the body of 150 midshipmen into three groups, each spending approximately one hour on each of the three stations, focused around the obstacle course aboard Camp Geiger. Various arm and leg strikes were taught during the MCMAP training and several runs through the obstacle course were made, but the brunt of the day’s excitement laid in the high-intensity pugil stick fights. “This is our second week into CORTRAMID (East),” said Midshipman Jacob Turk, a sophomore at Auburn

University in Auburn, Ala. “Last week, we were lectured on naval aviation by powerpoint presentations and displays. Today, with the pugil sticks and the obstacle course, it was all about brotherhood and endurance, testing yourself while helping others succeed. This week will only strengthen my choice to become a Marine Corps officer.” For the start of the Marine Week portion of the CORTRAMID East visit, every midshipman, regardless of Navy or Marine Corps ROTC standing, participated to the best of their ability, both physically in the challenges of endurance and mentally in the teamwork every event shared. For what promises to be an exciting week for the midshipmen aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, a feeling of anticipation is felt by all. “This is all training that, regardless of (military occupational specialty), Marines will continually utilize throughout their careers,” said Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Adcox, assistant Marine officer instructor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla. “Although a majority of the midshipmen are Navy option, they still come to the Marine week portion to be able to get a feel for what Marines do.”

James Wells (left), Jessica Anderson (middle) and Jamar Davis each push themselves down the stretch toward the finish line at the Run the Beach 8K at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Saturday. Wells, Anderson and Davis were three of the more than 300 runners who came out to participate in the third year event. BEACH FROM 1B Admittedly, Hornacek did have a little extra weight on him that didn’t help his cause. While most runners participated in physical training gear, Hornacek did the run in boots and utilities not only in honor of the Semper Fit Fund and one of the Marines he had in Afghanistan who lost both of his legs, but also to make things more challenging. “I’m dedicating the run to him,” he said. “Once I finish the run and get my finishers medal, I’m going to the hospital to give the medal to him … I figured I’ve done three marathons before, so I wanted to make this one harder on myself (and) that’s why I’m doing the whole 26 (miles at the Marine Corps Marathon) in boots and (utilities).” Awards and plaques were given out to the fastest individuals and teams at the race and free food, drinks and wet towels were provided to all participants as well. The race’s winner, Will Leek, finished the race in just under 30 minutes, though he did have a slight advantage over the other competitors. “I live on the beach in Surf City, so I’m used to running on the beach,” he said. “It feels pretty good (to win). I love competing. I’m home for the summer and entering as many races as I can. I love running and will never stop doing it.” The first female to cross the finish line, Natalie Salvador, didn’t even know about the race a few days ago. Her family was staying at Onslow Beach when she heard about the race and decided to enter. Having run the Boston Marathon before, this Photo by Russell Varner should have been no problem, right? A group of runners enter the homestretch down Onslow Drive during the Run Wrong. the Beach 8K, Saturday. “This run is really, really tough because you have the heat and the wind and you have to climb over sand,” she said. “(But, I feel) great, considering I’ve never gotten a first overall in any race (before).” And how did she plan on celebrating her great finish? “By relaxing on the beach with my family,” she said. Among the other winners were Paul Greenberg, male masters winner; Amy Cocanour, female masters winner; the Sledge Hammer team of Tucker George, Robert May, John Farrell and Neil Simmons, male team winners; the Stroller Warriors 2 team of Hilary Moore, Teresa Emison, Sarah Viczorek, Elizabeth Addison and Angel PorLandmark Military Newspapers of North Carolina, ter, female team winners; the DISBO team of Christine Kunish, Alfonso Rodriquez, Proud civilian Publisher of The Globe Aaron Sayers, Lance Smith and Jonathan Borders, mixed team winners; and Ryan and Erin Beil, husband and wife team winners.

Kicking 4 Hunger helps kids kick for a cause RUSSELL VARNER Sports editor

Normally, start-up nonprofits have a hard time getting off on the right foot. That has not been the case at all for the Kicking 4 Hunger soccer camps. The organization hosted its first camps in Jacksonville, N.C., at the Jacksonville Area Soccer Association soccer complex Monday through Wednesday. The camp is a three-day, free camp available to all locals. All that is asked of the campers is to bring some equipment and nonperishable food items. “What’s neat about our camps is that we’re giving these kids a free camp where we teach them the skills of soccer, (but) we’re (also) helping the community and we’re teaching kids the importance of helping the community,” said Jacob Yaniero, board chairman for Kicking 4 Hunger. “In Jacksonville, there have been reports (lately) that talk about food pantries and food kitchens in dire need of food. So, we’re looking to help with that and help the community in more than one way. What else is neat is everything we do is local. We help the kids here and then we go to the food bank and help them. It’s nice to have the opportunity to help in more than one way.” The local community responded to Kicking 4 Hunger’s call, and in a big way. By the end of the camp, participants had raised more than 1,350 food items. Staff members were stunned at the outstanding support the local community showed to the camp, which was used as a trial run for the area. “We’ll be back,” laughed Gabriel Whaley, founder and president of Kicking 4 Hunger. “(The community) embraced the concept before we even had a chance to prove ourselves … Looks like we’ll be here

On the first day alone, campers donated more than 600 food items that will be distributed to local food kitchens and pantries. to stay.” “It tells you about (the community’s) dedication and how they care about other people,” added Bob Ceklosky, vice president and challenge coordinator of JASA. “It’s a military town and we have civilians in here. It’s a team effort and it’s more about the care of other people.” The camp hosted children from 5 to 11 years old, teaching them about more than just the fundamentals of the sport. Kicking 4 Hunger hopes to instill a love of the game before they focus on the competitive nature the sport brings out in people. “Our focus is that they come out here to learn to love soccer before getting involved in the competitive

mindset where there are a few winners and lot of losers,” said Whaley. “A lot of people get (so) wrapped up in the competition aspect at an early age that they miss something they could’ve been really good at … The way we work it is there is a lot of focus on you learning to love the game.” “The nature of soccer is to build community,” added Jenn White, executive secretary for Kicking 4 Hunger. “We’re trying to foster community and unity instead of competition. We want all the campers to be aware of what they are doing and still have fun. We want them to help out our mission if (they can). We’ve had campers come up and ask how many

cans they need to bring. We tell them only if they are able. If not, come out and have fun (anyway). This is for you and the community. Just by being here and knowing what we are doing is helping the community.” It’s amazing all the progress Kicking 4 Hunger has made, considering the camp started off as a small, one-time summer camp. But, demand quickly exploded as locals all around North Carolina wanted to help their communities and give their children a chance to learn about soccer. Now, the organization is officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Another unique characteristic of the camp

is the overall youth running the program. Whaley, Yaniero and White are all college students, but say that their young age and the age of their coaches (the majority of which are high school or college soccer players) actually gives them an advantage with the children. “A lot of people probably expected a lot of adults running this, but that’s part of our program,” said Whaley. “We have young volunteers working because the kids are automatically more receptive to a younger coaching staff. And the quicker they open up and trust you, the quicker they learn.” “Something neat about this area is (being able to) cater to the Marine base

and having the opportunity to help kids whose parents might be overseas or out of town,” said Yaniero. “It’s nice to be able to help the (service members) in another way.” Parents sat on the sidelines and enjoyed watching the children gain a love of the sport as all braved the blazing summer conditions. The heat index didn’t stop anyone from having fun, try as it might. It seemed as if nothing could stop the children from enjoying themselves, learning more about soccer and helping out their community.

Midshipmen get taste of Marine Corps|2C

From July 11 through 15, Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune was the site for two quality assurance inspections by the Naval Medical Inspector General and the Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits and certifies the overall performance of more than 19,000 medical establishments and programs across the country.

Joint Commission, Inspector General put NHCL under microscope CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


very three years, a tiny shiver crawls up the spines of those in U.S. naval hospitals. At any time, their respective hospital will be put under the microscope, poked and prodded and shown against a multitude of proficiency standards, making or breaking a hospital’s reputation. A week of triple-checking oneself and waiting in anticipation, the Joint Commission draws near. The JC is an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits and certifies the overall performance of more than 19,000 medical establishments and programs across the country.

Their ratings are recognized nationwide and speaks of the levels of health care quality and professionalism of each medical organization, thoroughly examining every intricacy of that hospital. But for Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, the JC is not alone. Alongside the JC inspection team is another group of health care quality assurance professionals led by the Naval Medical Inspector General – the Navy’s version of the JC that leads their own investigative team. With these two make-or-break forces descending upon NHCL, it was an all-out medical health and comfort inspection for NHCL, July 11 through 15. “This week of inspection occurs randomly as so not to allow health care organizations the opportunity to prepare for their visit,” said Navy Capt. Daniel

Zinder, commanding officer of NHCL. “On the side of naval medical hospitals, there is no need for preparation. What we present to these inspections is what we operate on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, there are still feelings of anxiety when you have 14 inspectors examining everything the hospital has to offer, looking for something to hit you on.” The JC inspections examine such things as overall hospital safety and the chain of events from diagnosis to discharge while the NMIG focuses on patient relations, how well health care providers know their jobs and the structure of the hospital command, from Zinder down to the newest sailor. On average, the inspector general records an average of 12 finds for the Navy’s various

medical institutions with NHCL coming out with only eight. While the final reports for either the JC or NMIG have been published, inspectors concluded the week with only eight findings. “The JC surveyors commented all week on how nicely things were going,” said Zinder. “Nothing major had been found – they said they had to dig very deeply into things to uncover something to record. After it was completed, they said they had the shortest hit list for a hospital in 17 years.” That is exactly the sort of quality that NHCL constantly brings to the table. A forerunner of all health care establishments in the Navy, NHCL continually strives to provide the best service to anyone who walks through their doors.

Wounded Warriors settle in to new barracks

Joe Knipe, a former Marine, and Barbara Robinson, program director with Armed Services YMCA, shake hands during the first Poker Run hosted by the Armed Services YMCA fundraising event at the New River Harley Davidson Buell motorcycle shop in Jacksonville, N.C., July 16. Knipe won the grand prize with a threeof-a-kind of jacks and received a $200 gift certificate from a local tattoo parlor.


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Marines recovering at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune from wounds sustained in Afghanistan and Iraq are finally making the newly constructed Wounded Warrior Battalion – East barracks their new home. The barracks are adjacent to the hospital, providing wounded Marines easy access to medical appointments. The troops’ previous home, near the II Marine Expeditionary Headquarters building, was five miles from Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune and was a 1940s-era barracks that needed regular upkeep. Now, not only are they co-located with the Fisher House, they are minutes away from the hospital where they can receive treatment. “We were successful on bid day for awarding the project, although profit margins were very slim,” said Mark Blackman, Wounded Warrior Barracks project superintendent with RN Rouse, a construction company out of Cary, N.C. “I was called into the office and asked if I would come down here to build it. It was an honor.” Blackman said he learned to appreciate service members regardless of what branch from his father, who retired from the Air Force. When he saw the first few Marines at the new barracks – burns, missing limbs and just as many scars from battle as incisions from surgery – it didn’t bother him. “When I was younger, I never realized what my father did in the military,” said Blackman. “But I have a brother who was burned, missing half of his chest and missing a finger. I’ve seen this before and there’s nothing wrong with them. These Marines were at the ribbon cutting. In our world, that’s tough for the outside world to see. The (wounded warriors) aren’t looking for sympathy. I want to shake their hands just as hard as I shake anyone else’s because I can only imagine what they had to go through.” Blackman said that the new barracks and accommodations help them find peace and provide a sense of tranquility. No more stress from shoulder-wide bathrooms or tiny beds because they now have above-average living quarters in a clean, up-to-date facility. “Every one of them deserve it,” said Blackman. “I’ll probably never be a part of something like this again in my career. I have five children. If I can raise them and instill in them that if they can reach out and make a difference SEE BARRACKS 2C

nurses’ hotline, NHCL “takes care of the guardians of peace,” per its motto, as well as the families of those guardians. Such is a fact that is once again verified by both the Joint Commission and the Naval Medical Inspector General. Of the large number of programs the hospital boasts, each one puts patient care first, and again with the reports not yet finalized, it is a fact both inspecting parties have verified. “It is extremely validating for them to come in, put us under the microscope and tell us that we’re doing a great job,” said Zinder. “However, with the inspections completed, it’s not like we let our guard down and dial down our proficiency. We constantly maintain the highest level of health care service we can and are always looking for ways to improve ourselves.”

Motorcyclists cruise to YMCA Poker Run fundraising event PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

More than 40 motorcyclists participated in the first Poker Run hosted by the Armed Services YMCA at New River Harley Davidson Buell motorcycle shop in Jacksonville, N.C., July 16. This was an ASYMCA fundraising event that was open to the public, and it was a combination of a motorcycle run and poker game. Riders rolled in to register for the event around 9:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The cost of the event was $10 for single riders and $15 for riders with a passenger. Participants mingled and talked about their favorite bikes and roads to ride on while the sun reflected off the polished chrome and paint of bikes leaning together in a formation. After an hour of registering, riders zipped up their leather jackets, fitted their helmets and mounted their bikes. To identify event participants, all riders were given wristbands and a tally sheet to keep track of their poker hand. At 10:30 a.m., the bikers revved their motors and started the run from the New River Harley David-

son Buell, where they also received their first card, making stops at various businesses to pick up a card at each checkpoint before returning to the New River Harley Davidson Buell to complete the course. As riders returned from the 60mile route, their stomachs continued to rumble like the bikes they rolled in on. The Harley shop provided hot dogs right off the grill and cold beverages to tame their hunger and quench their thirst. “I’m giving these dogs my special touch,” said Cpl. Aaron Carter, a warehouse clerk with 3rd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, one of the volunteers who helped grill. Around 2 p.m., everyone gathered around the tents for the raffle drawing prize giveaway and the announcement of the rider with the winning poker hand. Raffle winners received items such as helmets, gloves, T-shirts and gift certificates provided by area businesses. The poker run winner was Joe Knipe, a former Marine, and he received a $200 gift certificate to a local tattoo parlor. His winning hand was a three-of-a-kind of jacks. “I really enjoyed the event,” said

Knipe. “The course was nice and the weather was perfect. I’d be happy to support the YMCA at any of their events.” A few Marines with 3rd and 5th Battalions, 10th Marines, volunteered to help the YMCA at the Poker Run. “It’s a good feeling to be able to give back to the community,” said Carter. “I’m a family man myself, and it’s good to see the all people out supporting the YMCA because they do a lot for the service members and their families.” Many volunteers and local businesses helped to make the event possible. “The YMCA didn’t have to pay for any of the prizes or food provided at this event,” said Barbara Robinson, program director with ASYMCA. “We’re fortunate to have all these volunteers and (businesses) supporting us. I’m thankful for all of their help. I think the event turned out great so we’ll probably hold this event next year.” For more information on ASYMCA programs and events call 450-0497 or visit

Coal pulverizers work 24 hours a day in the stream generation plant aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, May 16. The steam plant provides hot water for the majority of Camp Lejeune’s main side.

BARRACKS FROM 1C to one person, that’s all that matters.” The $25 million barracks project includes: • 100 two-man suites with a living area and kitchenette in each room. • First floor facilities with wheelchair accessibility. • Wounded Warrior Battalion company spaces. • Private counselor rooms. • Fitness and physical therapy rooms. • A battalion aid station. • A large meeting room. The barracks will be one of four future facilities that will become the Wounded Warrior Complex. In addition to the already completed Fisher House, the complex will feature a rehabilitation center and battalion headquarters. The whole complex is scheduled to be completed by September. Sgt. Brian McPherson, a former rifleman with 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, said when he first checked into the battalion after participating in the Fleet Assistance Program, the barracks was full and he had to take up residence at a

French Creek barracks. McPherson is seeking treatment for a traumatic brain injury, and is recovering from a bilateral shoulder and spinal injury. “(These) barracks (have) a lot more space,” said McPherson. “The location is good too. For one, it’s a lot closer to the hospital and once we get golf carts here, we’ll be able to drive them back and forth. A lot of us have to visit the Naval Hospital and the annex often.” McPherson added that even though some of the wounded warriors don’t have the motivation to cook for themselves sometimes, there is plenty of space in the new kitchen. McPherson added that NHCL also provides free meals for the troops. “It’s definitely a great barracks,” said McPherson. “Other cool accommodations are a television in the room, internet access, cable and a telephone. And with the Fisher House here, if your family was to visit, they can stay right across the street. We have a few kinks to work out, but other than that, things are going well here. It will be even better in due time.”

Steam generators slowly decentralized for efficiency PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


arines, sailors and pat r o n s aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune drive on Holcomb Boulevard every day and at one point or another, glance over at the rusty industrial building and have no idea that they are looking at the steam generator plant. Built more than 70 years ago, the plant’s appearance has not changed aside from having a new fence built around it. The plant is also a functioning historical building that has the ability to produce 480,000 pounds of steam per hour. From the outside, the building can look lik an abandoned warehouse, but if one were to step inside, they’d see machines pulverizing tons of coal to fuel four out of the

five water boilers. The boiler that doesn’t run on coal was added about 25 years ago, and it was recently converted to a unit that is capable of running on natural gas and diesel, which is a more environmentally friendly fuel because it emits less greenhouse gases than coal. “The plant provides hot water for all of main side (MCB) Camp Lejeune, but the plan is to decentralize the boiler system by adding small boilers to individual buildings because it’s newer, cleaner and more efficient,” said Matthew Brinkley, the general foreman responsible for operations at the steam generation plant. “All of the new barracks and the new (mess) hall will have the small boilers.” There are about 150 small boilers throughout MCB Camp Lejeune, Marine Corps Air Station New River, Camp Johnson, Stone Bay and Courthouse Bay. Monitors from the plant drive to all of the outlying boilers to

conduct daily inspections. Brinkley said that there aren’t many problems with the new boilers and the only challenge comes from obtaining minor parts for repairs on the older boilers. He said the most difficult part comes from repairs that cost $2,900 or more because of the timeconsuming process of waiting for contractors to bid on doing the work, settling with a contractor and finally beginning the repairs. The workers at the plant do everything in their power to keep the hot water flowing. “In (the) summertime, there are a lot of storms that can sometimes take out our power, but we have a backup generator that can keep the facility functioning,” said Greg Betts, a boiler plant supervisor. “We don’t have that many problems. As long as we are supplying steam to the outlaying area, we’ll have the troops happy. If you don’t have hot water, give us a call!”

The Marines and sailors of Wounded Warrior Battalion – East began moving into their new barracks in April, which is located near Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune and the Fisher House aboard the base. Now that they have nearly completed the move, they can make use of 100 two-man suites with a living area and kitchenette in each room, greenway trails, wheelchair accessibility, new office spaces and furniture, private counselor rooms, fitness and physical therapy room, a battalion aid station, full-sized kitchen and a large meeting room.

Disabled American CORTRAMID offers insight Veterans Chapter 16 for future officers seeking donations PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

End of Active Service – for those who hit this date, it is a time to hang up their utility uniforms and prepare for their life in the civilian community. At times, some of these service members leave the military disabled – physically or mentally. The life ahead of them may become hard at times and some may need a shoulder to lean on. For that, veterans have Disabled American Veterans Chapter 16, a nonprofit organization in Jacksonville, N.C. The chapter’s mission is to help veterans, be it providing transportation, helping when a bill is overdue or providing a much-needed wheelchair or set of crutches to a handicapped veteran. The Onslow County chapter is able to assist veterans all because of donations, fundraisers and volunteers from the surrounding community, including Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and its tenant commands. Now, the chapter is hosting events to raise money to keep providing their services to military families. Fundraisers include raffles, bingo nights, crafts sales and ‘pig pickins,’ a whole pig barbecued to perfection. Additionally, the chapter is always looking for volunteers. “We can help with (Veteran Affairs) claims and can also transport veterans to and from appointments from places like Winston-Salem to Durham, N.C.” said John Bryant, the commander for Chapter 16. “Right now we’re raising money to buy a 15-passenger van to help with transportation and we’re also looking for more volunteers who are willing to donate some time.” The chapter is already planning to host a Christmas raffle. Several local businesses have donated prizes including meals, a laptop and gift certificates to various local stores. The cost for a raffle ticket is $5 for one ticket, or $25 for six tickets. Another money-raising event occurs every weekend and patrons have a chance to win up to $2,500. Bingo night, which is every Friday night, kicks off at 5 p.m. and the game starts at 7. During that time, a bake sale also takes place for the gamers who get a snack craving. An event that the chapter is currently preparing for is a crafts sale along with a pig pickin, which is slated for Oct. 15. The chapter is also selling vending locations at their sale, ranging from $10 to $15 if the vendor requests electricity. “We already have volunteers,” said Bryant. “There’s a group of Marines that stop by occasionally who call themselves the ‘Jordan X’ volunteers and they’ve done SEE VETERANS 3C

Being an officer in the United States Marine Corps or Navy is a position that displays devotion to country and is built on the foundation of leadership. But how did some officers gain insight on who, where and how they wanted to lead before joining the military? The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps’ summer training program for the Navy and Marine Corps offers the annual Career Orientation Training for Midshipmen for the men and women who’ve decided to follow the path to becoming an officer. Navy ROTC midshipmen from across the eastern region of the country were given an opportunity to immerse themselves in the lifestyles of Marines as part of a CORTRAMID training phase aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, recently. “They are all freshmen going into their sophomore year. They have stars in their eyes, and I can tell that a lot of them are excited,” said Capt. Joleen Young, the operations officer for the group of midshipmen and Marine officer instructor with Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. “This whole week is to expose them to all that is the Marine Corps. For a lot of the Navy midshipmen, this may possibly be the only

experience with the Marines for their entire career. This gives them the opportunity to see the way we live, how we act, both professionally and off duty. It also shows them the ethos that makes us Marines.” The CORTRAMID program is held in the country’s Pacific and Atlantic region. The western region’s CORTRAMID was held in the San Diego area, May 26 through June 25 and the eastern region’s was held in the Norfolk, Va., area, July 7 through Aug. 6. Training is conducted under the direction of host commands in each region. Two groups of approximately 500 midshipmen consisting of eight companies, of up to 70 midshipmen each, are rotated through training over a four-week period. Each week is dedicated to one of the four phases of the training, such as the aviation, submarine, surface warfare and Marine Corps phase. Most of the training seemed to emphasized “doing” rather than “watching.” During the evolution of the training, midshipmen had a chance to fly in aircrafts, board a fleet-ballistic missile submarine, spend time at sea aboard a surface warfare ship and fire weapons with Marines. During the Marine phase, the midshipmen were given a chance to ride in amphibious assault vehicles, ospreys

and helicopters. They also rappelled down walls, viewed controlled demolitions and participated in a firefight using M-16A4 and M-4 semi rifle carbine through simunition rounds, which were similar to paintballs. “(CORTRAMID) is awesome,” said Logan Hartzog, a Marine Corps option midshipman with the University of South Carolina. “Everything we’ve done so far has been fantastic. I especially loved the demolition part because I like blowing stuff up.” The training had many fun events, but more importantly, it provided a chance for the midshipmen to identify the role of operational service members in various working fields. “I’ve gained a better understanding of what Marines actually do,” said Hartzog. “This is just another step that’s gotten me closer. I hope that exposure during Officer Candidate School and The Basic School give me a better idea of want I want to do in the future.” The training program’s purpose is to further the professional development of midshipmen by introducing them to different aspect of the Marine Corps and Navy, so the midshipmen can have an idea of what path they want to follow toward becoming an officer. “They really have a nice experience because their college is paid for,” said Young. “They are learning military skills, but they are still living as a regular college student, so this is a chance for the midshipmen to learn about military lifestyle outside of the classroom.” Photo by Pfc.

Base patrons get down during Flashback Fridays CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The sounds of the South rang through the air of Onslow Beach, Friday, during the monthly Flashback Friday summer event. Dubbed as “Toes in the Sand,” it was the second Flashback Friday of the summer, and featured country music. The free event offered a place to socialize and dance, food and beverages, as well as $1 beverages from 8 to 11 p.m. Patrons of all ages danced to everything from George Strait to Taylor Swift during the beach party located at the gazebo near the basketball courts. Couples two-stepped to love songs and rowdy friends danced to upbeat line dances like country legend Steve Earle’s “Copperhead Road.” Attendants were encouraged to bring their own chairs, blankets and coolers with food and beverages. “It’s been a really great event so far,” said Laura Whiteside, attendant of the Flashback Friday event. “Most of the older folks are just having a good time relaxing and laughing at us (making) fools of ourselves.” Throughout the night, the crowd became smaller and smaller but the fun didn’t dwindle. “We do these events so the base personnel can get together and have a good time,” said Chris Usry, Onslow Beach manager. “They can socialize, meet new people, dance and listen to some good music at the beach on a Friday night.” Until the final song was played, the humor and smiles were never ending. Three-year-olds taught grown men how to “dougie” and groups of Marines struggled to catch the beat while learning to square dance. “It’s been awesome,” said Pfc. Kevin Sholtz, attendant of the Flashback Friday event. “I haven’t stopped laughing all night.

Normally I would be off base spending a ton of money on a Friday (night), but instead I’m here having just as much fun for free.” Good Vibrations is the theme for the next Flashback Friday, scheduled for Aug. 26, and will feature beach and shag music. For more information on upcoming beach events, call 440-6546.

The money that is raised will be put toward purchasing a new van and is also used to buy walkers and wheelchairs to help veterans in need. “Everything we receive goes back to the community - that’s what we’re here for,” said Davis. “We want the veterans to know that we’re always here to help them once they’ve left the military. This is a place they can turn to when in need.” The Disabled American Veterans Chapter 16 building is located at 300 Sherwood Road in Jacksonville, for more information, call 455-3400.

hings at the library are getting “curiouser and curiouser.” The Teen Summer Reading Program transformed the Harriotte B. Smith Library into a wonderland for the wildest, craziest tea party Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune has ever seen, Tuesday. “We’ve been planning this for months,” said Shannon Fowler, a member of the Teen Advisory Group for the library. The group, made up of teenagers from MCB Camp Lejeune, meets weekly to come up with activities to get more of their peers involved with activities at the library. With minimal help from their adult supervisors, the teens came up with creative events for the entire summer, including the tea party. “We all really like the Tim Burton version,” said Fowler. “It had been something we had all been talking about. We like the abstractness and craziness of it.” Encouraged to dress as their fa-

vorite Wonderland characters, the party had a mix of Alices, white queens, white rabbits and, of course, Mad Hatters. “This group loves any excuse to dress up,” said Fran Bing, youth services director at the library. The teens couldn’t deny the fact. “The Cheshire Cat is my favorite,” said Irelyn Fowler. “Nothing is what it seems and that’s exactly what I’m about.” Welcoming everyone to the event, Irelyn reminded everyone, “Everything in Wonderland is opposite, so eat your desserts first.” The table was full of unique sweets, including tarts with hearts, cupcakes resembling mushrooms and marshmallow treats with messages from the movie spelled out. Though teenagers aren’t usually known for their love of libraries, the room was buzzing with excitement. “It’s a chance to get to know people your age who are going through the same thing you are with the military life,” said Irelyn. “And you get to do fun things you wouldn’t normally get to do.” In an atmosphere that encouraged creativity, SEE TEA 3D

‘Cars 2’ returns to race with new names, familiar faces Now playing at Camp Lejeune “CARS 2” (G) “Cars 2” is a computer-animated film by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. This is the long awaited sequel to the popular 2006 Golden Globe Award winning film “Cars,” with much of the main cast returning for another adventure. However, “Cars 2” is different in its genre this time as it is more of a spy movie that just happens to have cars for its characters. This sequel is also built more around the popular character Mater, the incomparable tow truck, who takes his friendship with star racecar Lightning McQueen, to exciting new places. They head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix - where cars from every continent prepare for the ultimate competition - to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises, when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a topsecret mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe.

Adding to the fastpaced fun is a colorful new all-star cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitions. Returning to voice their hit characters are: Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen, the hotshot racecar; Larry the Cable Guy as Mater, the provincial and dim-witted tow truck; Tony Shalhoub as Luigi; Cheech Marin as Ramone; and Bonnie Hunt as Sally. Throughout their journey, Mater and McQueen meet a new cast of friends and enemies that include: Michael Caine as Finn McMissile, a 1966 Aston Martin vintage sports car and British super spy; Emily Mortimer as Holly Shiftwell, a high-tech coupe and brainy secret agent; Joe Mantegna as Grem, the 70s Gremlin; Peter Jacobson as Acer; Thomas Kretschmann as Professor Zundapp; Eddie Izzard as Miles Axelrod; John Turturro as Francesco Bernoulli, a flashy Italian; and Jason Isaacs as Siddeley, the only noncar, a sleek jet. Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero can be heard as The Queen and Uncle Topolino respectively. Also listen for real racecar drivers Jeff Gordon as the voice of Jeff Gorvette and Darrell Waltrip as the voice of Darrell Cartrip. Director John Lasseter (“Toy Story” and “Toy Story 3,” “A Bug’s Life,” “Cars”) and co-director Brad Lewis (“Ponyo”),

Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job. When the animals get wind of this, they are in a panic, and decide to break their time-honored code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can actually talk. To keep Griffin from leaving, the now squabbling and wisecracking animals decide to teach him the rules of courtship – animal style.

Chaplain’s Corner

Ten ways to ruin marriage CMDR. KENNETH COUNTS

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

When you said “I do,” there was fire and enthusiasm for that fantastic person you married. What changed? What made the fire go out? 1. Letting divorce become an option. Couples who stay married deliberately refuse to consider divorce. Once you get married, stay married. Marriage is a commitment to stay together no matter what. You do not give yourself any escape route. Marriages work out because the husband and wife do not give up or leave. This is also the reason you should not get married in a hurry. Never threaten to divorce your mate. Do not even say the “D” word. Threatening to leave sends the message that you only love them when they give you what you selfishly want. 2. Creating a Facebook account so your wife/ husband cannot see your secret relationships. Marriage is a “members only” club for one man with one woman. No intruders are welcome. That means stop talking to other girls except in open conversations in public places when your wife is right beside you. 3. Going out with the guys to a bar to flirt. (You too ladies, don’t do this). It seems like everybody does this. But that does not make it right for you. Save it all for the one you say you love. Be a one-woman man, or vice versa. 4. Telling your mother your complaints about your wife. This is back stabbing and treason. Yes, every husband and wife has complaints and disappointments with the one they married. But you solve those by talking to each other, not by telling it to others who will take sides with you against your spouse. Don’t betray them. Don’t talk about them behind their back. 5. Asking the other lance corporals for advice about how to get your wife to stop being angry with you. Unmarried Marines do not know how to solve marriage problems. They have one solution and they always say the same thing. “Get rid of her.” Please read #1 above if you are not clear on this. 6. Failing to act like a man. Stop spending all your time playing XBox and computer games when you come home from work. Are you a man or a child? If you have a wife or a husband you cannot ignore them. You have to spend time together talking and getting to know one another. 7. Spending too much time with your hobbies, your old buddies and your sports. Now that you are married, and especially after you have children, you cannot spend as much time on your personal pleasures and recreation. The more your family needs you the more you need to give up and make time to be available for them. You should have realized that a “partner” demands care and maintenance every day. That should not be a surprise. 8. Viewing porn. Lots of porn. Looking at women or men, in a sexual way, even on a computer screen, can be extremely detrimental to the trust in your relationship. 9. Frowning and pouting because your spouse does not agree with everything you want to do. You married a human being with a mind and will of their own. All husbands and wives have to learn how to cooperate. They do not automatically agree on everything. Just because you have different opinions and preferences does not mean that you married the wrong person. But you do have to learn how to get along. 10. Thinking that marriage is easy. Marriage is work. When two individuals get married they have to learn how to become one. Don’t give up. It’s worth it in the end.

indergarten through fifth grade children who are enrolled in an area summer enrichment program held for students aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River hosted their End of the Summer Celebration at the Tarawa Terrace II Elementary School, July 22. The program is a summer enrichment program designed to keep the children active and academically challenged over the summer. “We have this enrichment program once a year in the summer for the children enrolled on (MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River),”

It’s enrichment, not a remedial program, so we’re hitting all levels of all subjects ... Singing, dancing and moving keeps them going. Costa Constantinou, music specialist, Delalio Elementary School said Vanessa Coleman, an area teacher in charge of the summer program. “We had a lot of volunteers, such as the Swansboro Young Marines color guard, (who) helped us get the summer program going, with about 85 kids from kindergarten to fifth grade who performed.” She continued, “It’s good for the kids, and it’s good for the parents to see their children perform.” Teams of children performed various patriotic and Disney songs for their parents and school staff. Coleman added that however fun and exciting

TEA FROM 1D Shannon let her imagination run wild when creating her costume. “I love the Mad Hatter, so I decided to be his assistant who is a really cool, crazy character named Scissors,” she explained. Besides tea and food, the event offered card games, pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat and a “Fudderwacken” dance off. The “Fudderwacken” was a dance created for the Tim Burton movie. Victoria Todd, a member of TAG, understood the difficulties they would face when planning the event. “It’s hard to get something both guys and girls will like,” she explained. “There are elements for both. It’s a little weird so the guys like it and it has a fantasy theme, and, of course, Alice, for the girls.” Todd admits that not everyone in the group is an avid reader, but they all step up their efforts for the SRP. Wonderland, however, seemed an appropriate theme for the group. “I’ve always liked Alice in Wonderland, and honestly, it can get a little mad around here,” Todd said. As a fan of Lewis Carroll’s books, Kory Overtree was hopeful that the party would inspire some to look into the story. “I feel bad not everyone has read the book,” he said. “It’s a fun read, as long as you can get passed some of the Old English, you’ll really enjoy it.” As the teens danced the night away, the signs decorating the walls of the room said it all, “We’re all mad here.” For more information about the Summer Reading Program, visit

more you can expose them to. It’s really good to get the kids engaged in something else.” Costa Constantinou, a music specialist with Delalio Elementary School aboard MCAS New River, said at the end of every summer program, they all work together to put on the End of Summer Celebration. Constantinou added that aside from other academics during the summer program, he had the opportunity to teach the children the various songs and choreography in the celebration. “I just try and bring the gift of music,” he said. “It’s not in the curriculum, and I wasn’t hired to teach it, (but) I feel like I should bring that gift to the table for the children. Singing, dancing and moving keeps them going.” He thinks the program offers a respite to parents, especially those with spouses who are deployed. “It’s enrichment, not a remedial program so, we’re hitting all levels of all subjects,” said Constantinou.

the program may be, it still helps keep the children academically sound. Songs like “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Let’s Sing America” and “God Bless the U.S.A.,” were just a few patriotic songs to get families on their feet and singing. “Zip A Dee Doo Dah,” “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Under the Sea” and “A Whole New World” were a few Disney favorites that both parents and kids enjoyed singing along to. Several area talents also presented their skills to the audience, to provide interest and expose the younger crowd to something new. Children showcased their talents in a number of acts including cup stacking, a duet with instruments and even interpretive dancing. Coleman said next year’s theme, Kaleidoscope, will bring a lot of poetry and art. “Kids need to see that,” said Coleman. “They don’t need to just get used to their own bubble or just what’s available on base. There are other things they can be doing and there is

National Night Out returning to stop crime AMY BINKLEY

Carolina Living editor

Whether the enemy is found on foreign soil or down the block, Onslow County and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune have a force of homegrown heroes standing ready to protect their citizens. National Night Out will celebrate the brave uniformed security, from policemen to Marines to emergency medical technicians, at the Riverwalk Crossing Park in downtown Jacksonville, N.C., Aug. 2 from 5 to 9:30 p.m. “The committee has been hard at work and is looking forward to another successful year with National Night Out,” said Capt. Patricia Driggers, event chairman. Despite taking place during arguably one of the hottest times of the year, the event has become one of the area’s most popular, typically drawing out more than 10,000 people. Also known as “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” neighbors from all over the country come together to promote crime prevention and bring awareness to programs such as Crime Stoppers. The focus leans more toward the serious, but committee members have gone above and beyond to make sure the free family event also packs a lot of fun. More than 200 vendors, including representatives from local law enforcement agencies, businesses and civic groups, will line the perimeters ready to answer any questions visitors may have.

Food, craft and activity booths will provide unending entertainment for children of all ages. An event in downtown Jacksonville isn’t complete without live music, and the Nantucket Band, a local favorite, is happy to oblige with many familiar tunes. The annual bicycle raffle giveaway will no doubt be another highlight of NNO, but winners must follow certain rules. Children must be less than 15 years old and accompanied by a parent or guardian who must be present at the time of the drawing. They are only allowed three tickets each and can only win one bicycle. Tickets will be given away from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., and winners will be announced at 6:40 p.m. Every party has a guest of honor, and some local royalty will be making their way down to the river. Miss Teen N.C., Vanessa McClelland; Miss North Carolina USA, Brittany York; Miss South Carolina USA, Courtney Turner; and Miss Teen South Carolina, Keyla Childs, will be on hand to sign autographs and take photos. Capping off the community celebration will be a fireworks display taking place over the river for families, friends and everyone else to enjoy. Shuttle services will be provided to six free parking areas in downtown. For more information, visit www.

Families find deals, steals at Armed Services YMCA PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Service members and families lined up for the Backdoor Boutique hosted by the Armed Services YMCA at their building aboard the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s Tarawa Terrace housing area, recently. The event offers families the opportunity to shop for items such as clothes, toys, linens and household goods. Participants can donate $30 and receive a tote or donate $10 and receive brown bags to fill with items offered at

the boutique. Doors opened for the event at 9 a.m. and closed at noon. A few of the participants arrived extra early so they could be the first to shop. “We were here at five in the morning,” said Britney Philhower, a military spouse accompanied by her neighbor Amanda McElrath, also a military spouse. “This is the first time that we’ve been here for the boutique. This is pretty cool and there is a lot of great stuff here.” There were a few participants new to the event, but many of the people waiting in line were regular attendees.

Four to five people are allowed to shop at a time for about 15 minutes to keep the boutique from getting crowded. “I try to come to every (Backdoor Boutique),” said Claudia Gomez, a military spouse. “But I usually come in about once a month. You find everything that you need - from children’s clothes to large rugs. I really love it because you can find expensive stuff for cheap.” Gomez purchased a bamboo rug, valued at $89, for only $10. At one of the past boutiques there was a $500 copper pot that was sold for $30. “This type of event

I feel very privileged to be able to help service members and their families.” “The boutique is really wonderful for us because it helps us save a lot of money and the (programs) that (the YMCA) offers to families are amazing,” said Gomez.

Jacksonville Mall


s heat waves carry us into the first days of August, parents and children alike are looking forward to the beginning of a new school year. But before packing up those lunchboxes and walking your children to the bus stop, you’ve got a decision to make. Where are you going to take your kid’s to go back to school shopping? More importantly, where are you going to get the most bang for your buck? In the heart of Jacksonville’s Western Boulevard, the Jacksonville Mall is the answer. Short of providing every family with their own personal assistant and child care provider, the Jacksonville Mall has designed special back-to-school deals that you can’t afford to miss. This year the Jacksonville Mall will again offer free school supplies to its shoppers under its “Backto-school Style Multiplier,” promotion beginning July 29. The Back-to-School Style Multiplier is a three-part promotion focused on assisting families in getting ready for the school year. “There are only so many dollars available for getting kids ready to go back to school, so many people look toward value-oriented shopping. We recognize this and so for the last couple of years we

Free school supplies, style multiplier make back-to-school a one stop shop have offered free back to school supplies with every $75 spent at the mall,” said Jacksonville Mall’s certified marketing director, Anastasia Paszkiewicz. Shoppers who take their receipts to customer service and show that they have spent $75 will receive a reusable shopping tote bag filled with two notebooks, two pocket folders and a pack of pencils. In fact, the more you spend the more free back-to-school supplies you can get. Shoppers can redeem up to three of these tote bags in one day by showing receipts that total $225 or more. The offer will run from July 29 until August 14, or until supplies last. Couple this deal with the tax free weekend at the Jacksonville Mall running August 6 and 7, and you’ll want to take advantage of these savings early on. What’s even more enticing about this year’s Back-to-school Style Multiplier is that you don’t have to leave your house for a chance to get some free goods. Starting July 29 and running until September 5, you can visit the Jacksonville Mall’s facebook page. When you ‘like’ their page, you will be able to enter a contest to win a $100 American Express mall gift card. Those who are already facebook fans will also be eligible to complete an entry form for the giveaway. One winner will be drawn each week for a total

of five weeks, giving five lucky winners the chance to shop ‘til they drop—while the Jacksonville Mall picks up $100 of their tab. Besides their facebook page, the Jacksonville Mall gives shoppers two more great reasons to check them out online. Their Shopping Buzz twitter feed (which can be found on the mall’s website), and IPhone application are constantly updated to help you keep tabs on all of the store’s latest sales and specials. In addition, the Jacksonville Mall’s own website, www., puts the icing on the cake of the 2011 Back-to-school Style Multiplier promotion. Their site will link up to the local school dress codes, so parents can head to the mall with the outfit do’s and don’ts in mind. The website will also feature five characters, each with different looks. Those five characters will demonstrate the trendy way to be a spendthrift—so trendy in fact, your child won’t even notice your money-saving tactics. Each interactive character features a fashion trend item that can by styled into five different looks, giving your children the chance to become their own style multipliers. Despite all the things you and your kids might not see eye to eye on, where you shop for back-

to-school clothes this year should not be one of them. Keep in mind the mall features three department stores—Belk, JCPenney and Sears, and also has the Children’s Place and GAP Kids. For your tweens and teens, be sure to check out Justice, Aeropostale, GAP, American Eagle and Pacific Sunwear. For footwear, shoppers can head to Shoe Dept., Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker and Finish Line. For even more bargains, be sure to head to the Jacksonville Mall for the tax-free weekend August 6 and 7. All clothing, footwear and school supply items that are $100 or less qualify. Mall hours will be extended that weekend with open hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Short of doing the shopping for you, the Jacksonville Mall is making this year’s back-to-school shopping season the easier (on you and your wallet) than ever before. “We are excited for another back-to-school season and to help everyone take advantage of our great deals and promotions,” said Paszkiewicz. If these deals aren’t enough to reel you in, I won’t resist the temptation to leave you with one more way to save. Be sure to ask stores if they give a military discount because there are over twenty stores that do. With all the great savings you’ll get back-to-school shopping at the Jacksonville Mall, don’t forget to treat yourself. And yes, the Jacksonville Mall has an app, (and a store) for that.

Starting July 29 bring $75 in same-day mall store receipts to the Management Office. Limit 3 packages per day, while supplies last. See the Management Office for details.

A Day’s Drive

Sneads Ferry


his year Sneads Ferry will welcome crowds of people out for the 41st annual Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival, which takes place August 13 and 14. Like many good ideas, the Shrimp Festival began as a group of local business owners shared ideas over cups of coffee one early morning back in 1971. Their motivation for holding the festival was to spread the word about the area’s delicious shrimp, so folks from all over could come out and enjoy it. In its very first year, the community members of Sneads Ferry donated everything they could to get the festival off to a great start. In 1972, the Shrimp Festival Committee was incorporated as a non-profit organization. Since then, Sneads Ferry citizens, merchants, volunteers, and Marines, have continually pitched in over the years to keep the festival not just going, but growing. The Shrimp Festival added a Shrimp Ball in 1972. This year, the night of dancing and dining will take place August 6, doors open at 6 p.m. The ball will reflect the contributions of the 2010 Queens and introduce the community to its new shrimp royalty. Dinner will be served at 7:15 p.m., beginning with garlic grilled shrimp and parmesan shrimp salad. After ribeye steak, shrimp tortellini and a key lime pie dessert, the traditional father-daughter

dance will kick off in the very same Sneads Ferry Community Center that the Shrimp Festival Committee helped to build. The Shrimp Festival itself will kick off with the annual parade at 10 a.m. August 13. The procession will include all of the crowned Shrimp Festival court, the Marine Corps Band, military equipment, as well as the Wells Fargo Stage Coach and much, much more. The procession will run an approximately 3 and a half mile long course beginning on Clay Hill road. It will then head down Sneads Ferry road followed by Fulcher’s Landing road, before making its final stretch down Wheeler Creek road. For those who want breakfast with a parade view, Captain Jim’s will be happy to oblige. Following the parade, the main stage entertainment will kick off with a familiar face. Singer, Marine wife, and winner of this year’s Maynia: Show us Whatcha Got, Valerie Morales will set the festival to music at 11 a.m. Every hour will bring a new entertainment act to the stage, ending on Saturday evening with beach inspired tunes from Billy Scott & the Party Profits from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday’s events will also include Shrimp heading and peeling contests at noon, and fireworks that will take place at 9 p.m. On Sunday, Shrimp Festival gates will be open from noon to 5 p.m., and will host

Shrimp Festival

the 9th annual Classic Car and Bike Show hosted by Tobacco Road Cruisers. Both days, festival favorite “Shrimparoo Dinners” will be available. The dinner consists of fried or boiled shrimp, hushpuppies, fries and coleslaw, all for only $8. This year, there are approximately 100 arts and crafts and food vendors, and no shortage of activities for a weekend of family fun. Camel and pony rides, fossil digs, face painting, games, and bounces will be available for your children’s entertainment. Military displays can also be found on the grounds on Saturday. Adults will have the opportunity to spend some time in the festival’s beer and wine garden. In addition, the festival has some events that will make their debut appearance at the 41st annual event. For the first time, a live shrimp tank will be added to the always favorite live touch tank, so attendees can get a good look at shrimp before it hits their plates. Another way to enhance your crustacean knowledge will be to catch one of the many live demonstrations the local fishermen will be doing for the first time. The fishermen will be demonstrating both net making and crab pot making for all who are interested. A final new and exciting development is that the return of the Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival king.

A taste of Italy On the Waterfont

Italian restaurant serves up gourmet breads, pizzas


hen Billy Joel wrote “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” he captured the atmosphere of the quintessential Italian restaurant. At Trattoria Gourmet Pizza and Bread, guests almost feel as if they have stepped right into the scene that Joel croons about. Trattoria, which sits just before the bridge in Swansboro, opened its doors only four years ago. Its peaceful setting across from the grassy, open area of Swansboro Bicentennial Park gives way to beautiful eye-level views of the water. Locals, vacationers, and military families who have been to Trattoria’s know that the food and the service make Trattoria’s worth coming back to. Their popularity has grown quickly, and they have recently opened an extended parking lot to accommodate more restaurant guests. From Italy to New Jersey to Swansboro, owners Salvatore and Kathy Fontana create authentic Italian masterpieces that always keep customers coming back for more. Their most popular starters include Bruschetta with crab, calamari, and stuffed involtin di melenzane, or eggplant rollatine stuffed with ricotta and parmesan cheeses. The combination platters at Trattoria are a popular way guests can get give their tastebuds a tour of Italy. Combinations include meatballs, sausage, and eggplant parmigiana, as well as chicken and veal cutlets. But most regulars’ stomachs lead them to Trattoria’s signature dish—gourmet pizza. With traditional choices like the “gourmet” and “special” pizzas, guests

don’t have to venture outside their comfort zone for a pizza they will love. For more adventurous foodies, the “Florentine,” “Philadelphia,” and “Buffalo Chicken” will have your stomach growling for more. In addition, Trattoria offers no shortage of pizzas for folks who prefer to skip the red sauce. The “Prosciutto Romano,” “Alex Seafood Special White,” and “Olivia Special Bruschetta Pizza,” are among the top picks. The years of experience the Fontanas and their staff have is evident upon the first bite into a slice. What is also evident is the romance that hangs in the air at Trattoria. Salvatore and Kathy Fontana’s relationship itself blossomed in an Italian restaurant back in New Jersey. The first time that Kathy met Salvatore, she was doing some retail therapy after returning back to the U.S. from Italy. As she walked through the mall she heard Italian music and wandered into the shop to feel a little closer to her family’s roots. Over the next year and a half, Kathy continued to get pizza from that shop. Little did she know that over that year and a half Salvatore had plans of courting her. In fact, it wasn’t until after their second kiss that Kathy realized something important. “I thought, wait a minute. I don’t even know this man’s name,” says Kathy. A simple, sultry answer of “Salvadore,” swept her off her feet. In Trattoria, love continues to bloom between couples. Just under a year ago, my husband and I headed to Trattoria for some comfort food. Upon arrival, my husband and I ordered

a bottle of wine, an appetizer and two entrees. Noticing we were dressed for an occasion, our server asked us if we were out celebrating. My husband and I looked deep into each others eyes and were both silent for a few moments. We were out that evening, not knowing if it might be the last time we ever sit down to dinner at a restaurant again. I am sure that our response was not uncommon. Still, sharing out loud that your husband leaves for Afghanistan in the morning isn’t easy. Our server took it upon herself to tend to us with great care that evening. Great wine, great food and great company made for a memory perfect enough to last the seven month gap it would be until we could make another one. As we finished up and prepared to pay our bill, the only thing on it was the bottle of wine. When we checked with our server, she informed us that she had shared our story and the restaurant picked up our tab that evening. This was neither expected nor needed, but their kindness did not go unappreciated. The opening of Trattoria four years ago did more than to fill the void of Italian

young and

restaurants in Swansboro, it has enhanced the community by providing a place for friends and family to break bread and for couples old to fall in love.

Military children from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune enjoy many activities at Outdoor Odyssey, July 6 through 15.

Military children learn to lead at Outdoor Odyssey AMY BINKLEY

Carolina Living editor


iding in the shadows of those who have gone before them, lies a generation of leaders waiting patiently for their turn to change the world. Military children are a special breed, carrying the weight and responsibilities of a unique lifestyle, for which they didn’t sign up, with grace and maturity beyond their years. Children of injured service members, however, have another load added to their pack and little knowledge of how to deal with it. Retired Maj. Gen. T.S. Jones heard the unvoiced cry for help from the children of injured Marines, and with the sponsorship of the Semper Fi Fund, he invited more than 60 children and teenagers from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to Outdoor Odyssey, a program designed to teach leadership skills through high adventure and teambuilding, July 6 through 15. “There are a lot of camps for kids to go to, but this one is different,” said Wendi Mundy, Semper Fi Fund program coordinator. “It’s an all-encompassing leadership experience.” Outdoor Odyssey’s mission is to create a bond between the youth and mentor with a unique wilderness adventure at their 500-acre Laurel Highland camp in Pennsylvania. “They are paired up and will continue the relationship throughout the school year,” said Mundy. The mentors, rising juniors and seniors from military families, came for training several days before the campers to learn important leadership skills and techniques. During the Leadership Reaction Course, the teens were put through scenarios that tested them both mentally and physically, including a high ropes course where they had to walk on wires 30 feet in the air, and a two-hour hike to their outdoor campsite. Jones took the opportunity to speak words of wisdom to the new mentors-in-training. “All men are created equal,” he said. “Unfortunately, all men aren’t

treated equally. Our job as mentors is to level the playing field.” A great leader himself, Jones has learned the value of others through the years and did his best to impart it to the younger group. “You are not all-important,” he pointed out. “Once you can escape from the center of your own world, you will realize you should reach out to help others.” These and other lessons stuck with each mentor as they battled through whitewater rafting in the rain and an exploration into the depths of Bear Cave which reached 400 feet below ground level at its lowest point. The most challenging exercise came as the team crawled through a 100 yard tunnel so narrow their shoulders touched the sides, and they had to crawl on their stomachs and could not lift their heads. After a few intense days of training, mentors were more than ready to welcome their campers, who were ages 8 to 13 and all children of injured service members. Relationships were made quickly, and most of the kids were open to talking about how they felt concerning their parents and military life in general immediately. “I think that what Gen. Jones is doing here is a really amazing thing to try and help out the kids of the wounded parents,” said Eric Maxwell, a mentor. “A lot of times people focus on the wounded soldiers and making sure they have everything they need but they don’t really think about the families of those soldiers or how it must feel to go through that kind of experience.” Throughout the week, the mentors and their campers grew closer as they bonded through trying situations and deep conversations. “Outdoor Odyssey is … fun because we talk about what happened to our dads, and we get to meet people who understand what happened,” said Tyler Gill, a camper. “And we have all these cool activities that use teamwork to get over obstacles.” The Tower, a course of 50-feet rock walls, cargo nets, rappel walls and a zip line, allowed the campers

to face their fears head-on with their mentors cheering them on the entire way. However, the words of Jones must have been ringing in the ears of the mentors when they returned to Bear Cave with their campers in tow. “You can fool your superiors most of the time, you can fool your peers much of the time, but you can never fool your subordinates,” he said. “They watch your every move, and if they can tell that you don’t care about them, they will not care to follow you. True leadership and inspiration is impossible without genuine concern.” With their prior experiences still fresh on their minds, mentors lead their groups through the tiny tunnel assuring and alleviating any concerns as they all worked together to make it out successfully. The bravery of the young campers was impressive, and after overcoming a week full of trials, the kids and their mentors shared stories, concerns, joys and the common bond only military children can understand. “When the campers came, it really made me think about my own experiences in the military when my dad deploys,” said mentor Cait Cobb. “I feel like even though we were supposed to be mentoring them, they taught us a lot. It’s been a great experience and a lot of fun.” Tyler Rytych, a camper, was confronted with many of his fears during camp and was thankful to have a mentor focused on helping him. “I learned that things can be scary, but you can get over them,” he said. “My mentor was there for me the whole time and she encouraged me” The Semper Fi Fund, a program that provides financial assistance to injured Marines and their families while they recover, hopes to continue to send more mentors and campers to Outdoor Odyssey in the future. They also hope to help continue to raise up a force of young people ready to lead their peers. For more information, visit www.semperfifund. org or
