arines from 2nd Battalion, 2nd M a r i n e Re g i m e n t , practiced offensive and defensive infantry techniques during a training exercise aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 5 through 12. The battalion recently detached from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit after serving

as its ground combat element on the MEU’s most recent deployment, and the training exercise gave the Marines a valuable opportunity to refresh their basic infantry skills now that 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines is back at MCB Camp Lejeune. “The training is very progressive so far,” said Capt. Nicholas Vogel, the company commanding officer. “We came out here for small unit training and leadership, and everything worked out according to plan.” The training proved to be a

great opportunity for Marines new to the battalion to train for new positions as some of the company’s more senior smallunit leaders leave 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines. “This training is going to train the junior Marines for the squad leader and fire-team leader positions,” Vogel, said. “Then when the squad evaluation comes in August the senior Marines are refreshed and the new Marines are prepared.” The week-long training consisted of patrolling, day and

night live fires, and defensive and offensive fundamentals to simulate real-life situations encountered in combat. “There is nothing better than going to the field for training and putting rounds down range,” said Lance Cpl. Charles Holloway, infantrymen with 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines. “Since we just got back from the MEU we have to get all the rust knocked off the Marines and make sure we’re combat ready.” The company’s leadership felt SEE EXERCISE 7A

Bridge Company supports infantry, saves Marine Corps money CPL. KATHERINE M. SOLANO 2nd Marine Logistics Group

Bridge Company, 8th Engineer Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group has the ability to save units money and valuable time during any training operation taking place across the New River. Infantrymen assigned to 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment conducting live-fire training were able to experience the unique capabilities of Bridge Company first hand June 8. “Today we crossed approximately 15 vehicles for 2nd Bn., 2nd Marines, along with about 50 personnel … so they can do some training over the weekend,” said Staff Sgt. Philip Thornton, the maintenance chief for Bridge Company. He noted the use of rafts – comprised of ribbon bridge components and MK III bridge erection boats – allows them to take more personnel while using fewer transport

vehicles. Overall movement to and from the training grounds and fuel consumption is also significantly less. Over the course of 2nd Bn., 2nd Marine’s training evolution, 8th ESB transported more than 500 Marines and nearly 60 vehicles were ferried back and forth across an approximate 2.4-mile expanse from Engineer Point to Rhodes Point – an auxiliary training ground adjacent to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. By ground convoy, the same training area lays 35-miles south of Mainside Camp Lejeune and may take multiple hours to reach and thousands of dollars of fuel and contracting vehicles. It takes less than an hour to travel the two miles by water when 15 to 25 engineers come together to transport the personnel, supplies and vehicles, and is essentially free for the unit. “Any unit that wants to save time, fuel and personnel should contact us,” said Thornton.

The maneuver operations are also important to the engineers themselves. While the bulk of 8th ESB is currently deployed to Afghanistan in support of International Security Assistance Force operations, the exercise provided remain behind assets with valuable training of their own. “Having the knowledge of what the raft is going to do, how to turn it and how currents will affect it can only be gained by actually conducting the maneuvers,” explained Lance Cpl. Erikon Rosamond, the raft commander for the recent operation. Rosamond pointed out the obvious benefits of such a partnership: the infantrymen get to their training faster, cheaper and easier, while the engineers get to practice their trade. “You always need transportation no matter where you are,” Rosamond continued. “It is important to have the maneuverability. “We just go out there and get it done,” he concluded.

SemperSafe Semper Safe By Ron Farris

Workout supplements, energy drinks can pose risks Active duty military, DOD Civilians and family members often use workout supplements for boosts of energy and to maximize performance during workouts. Post-workout supplements are used to lessen the pain after a strenuous workout session and assist in muscle recovery. Although supplements can provide benefits, some may be dangerous if not used properly. Some people will use a combination of supplements all at once also known as stacking and are unaware of the potential risk. They assume if it’s sold on the market, at a reputable store, then it must be safe. Not so. Here are a few factors to consider when taking supplements: Is it necessary, when a proper diet and exercise will yield the same results? Are side effects such as increased heart rate, nausea, dehydration, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort or organ damage worth the risk? Supplements are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and a “natural” supplement does not mean they are safe. Workout supplements containing harmful ingredients available to consumers prove to be dangerous, one such supplement is Ephedra. Most products containing Ephedra were removed from the market after mounting reports of injuries and deaths. Be aware and be cautious. Just because a product is sold on the market does not mean it is safe. Supplements aren’t the only potentially dangerous substance legally

sold on the market. Energy drinks claim to provide people with increased energy levels to keep them active and alert. Most energy drinks contain at least as much caffeine as a standard eight-ounce cup of coffee or 80 milligrams. To put it into perspective, a 12oz. soda contains 18 to 48mg of caffeine. The caffeine found in energy drinks is dangerous enough on its own. Not only is caffeine addictive, it acts as both a stimulant and a diuretic. As a diuretic, caffeine causes your kidneys to remove extra fluid from your body. If you consume energy drinks while sweating, these effects can be particularly dangerous because you can become severely dehydrated quickly. As a stimulant, caffeine can make you have anxiety attacks, heart palpitations and insomnia. It can also make you jittery or irritable. Many people mix energy drinks with alcohol because it makes them feel alert and energetic. Energy drinks mixed with alcohol will decrease the body’s internal water supply and natural detoxification processes causing severe dehydration. Using energy drinks during exercise or other strenuous activities does nothing to provide the body with necessary nutrients or fluids, and compounds the problem of dehydration. In addition to large doses of caffeine, energy drinks contain excessive amounts of sugar and legal herbal stimulants. Energy drinks are a deceptive combination of soft drink and pseudo-nutritional supplement, and it is still unclear what ef-

fect those ingredients on the body. Manufacturers of energy drinks are not required by law to list whether or not the herbs they use, were sprayed with toxic pesticides, irradiated or watered with contaminated water supplies. There is no telling what other toxins are contained in these drinks and whether or not these herbs will have a negative effect on the body. Energy drinks can potentially add more toxins to an already toxin-burdened body. The bottom line concerning energy drinks is medical professionals simply do not know the long-term effects of consuming these beverages. Do’s and Don’ts of energy drinks: Do drink more water to hydrate vice energy drinks. Don’t drink energy drinks to maintain a high level of alertness. Your body will eventually “crash” by abusing energy drinks. Do read labels carefully and research your product. Just because it tastes good and provides short burst of energy does not mean it is good for you. Don’t mix alcohol with energy drinks. The contents of energy drinks mixed with alcohol can confuse the body’s system of balance and lead to hazardous results. Don’t be fooled by “natural” energy drinks. Make sure you read the ingredients and they are from an “herbal” derivative. Eat healthy, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly. Your body will perform when you need it most.

Click It or Ticket The North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program called “Click It or Ticket” began in 1993 and has become the national model for an enforcement and education campaign of the same name operated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The campaign’s goal is to increase seat belt and child restraint awareness. During the “Click It or Ticket” campaign, which ended June 3, state and local law enforcement officers increased seat belt enforcement activities and cracked down on motorists who were not wearing their seatbelts. North Carolina, like the majority of the other states, has a “Primary Seat Belt Law” which allows law enforcement officers to issue a safety belt citation without observing another offense. During the two week campaign, there were checkpoints and saturation patrols in every NC County and 404 law enforcement agencies participated. The campaign stressed strict enforcement of seat belt and restraint laws, the side effects were also apparent netting not only 11,471 occupant restraint charges, but other traffic and criminal charges such as DWI, drug violations, speeding, fugitive apprehensions, etc. Total traffic and criminal violations totaled 88,086 in the state. Wearing your seatbelt costs you nothing, not wearing it could cost you everything. Make the right decision and buckle up every time you’re in a motor vehicle.

Base plans an additional hour of nighttime training during summer months Residents aboard base and in the surrounding community may hear artillery, mortar and aircraft noise an additional hour past the normal midnight cutoff time Monday through Friday and Aug. 20 through 24. Officials at Camp Lejeune have granted the one-hour extension to allow specific ground and air combat elements to complete their nighttime training objectives. The community’s patience and understanding is appreciated as the base strives to provide the best possible training for deploying Marines and sailors.

Two recruits aboa aboard Marine Corps Recruit Depot Pa Parris Island are currently await awaiting discharge pending evaluation evaluat for disability benefits after a an illness and surgery. What wo would be worse to you than spendin you, spending more than 16 months as a recruit in limbo? Or were you a recruit who spent more than 13 weeks aboard the Island? What did you do to pass the time? I think getting blown up would be worse than 16 little months of my life sitting aboard a vacationing resort known as Parris Island.

Unfortunately I went to the Physical Condition Platoon my first week of basic for failing the initial PST in 1996. PCP is the most depressing place on PI! There were people in there who were there for months and still hadn’t started day one of boot! Luckily, I managed to shred 30 lbs, pass the PST, and was sent to my new platoon in Echo Co., 2nd Battalion. So I endured 16 weeks of boot rather than 13 weeks. Glad I was able to turn things around quicker than others who were still in PCP when I graduated boot. OOH-RAH

I spent six months on the island after having to go to the Medical Rehabilitation Platoon two times (one of the times I was only a week from graduation) A week before my 180 days came up I was asked if I wanted to leave, I stayed and graduated, and served for four years. I had no problems with my VA disability. But I really think 16 months as a recruit doing training would be worse than just being in limbo. Six months was bad enough.

A member of the Armed Services Blood Program handles vials of blood during a blood drive aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 13. Medical staff with 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd Marine Division contacted the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune’s Blood Donor Center and hosted an ASPB blood drive to help with the increasing demand for blood donations in the military.

2nd AA Bn medical personnel arrange blood drive, help military community CPL. ANDREW JOHNSTON 2nd Marine Division


ccording to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and more than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day. Less than 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood, which makes it tough for the military who can only use donations from its own members, said Petty Officer 1st Class Erik F. Torres, Armed Services Blood Program facilitator, Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. Medical staff with 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd Marine Division wanted to help fight the cause and took action. They contacted Torres and hosted an ASBP blood drive aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 13. “Right now the military is having a hard time getting blood,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class William J. McCullen, corpsman, 2nd AA Bn., said. “We wanted to help the efforts in Afghanistan and the Wounded Warrior Battalion, and get as many people as we could to come out and donate.” Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history/mini-physical, donations and refreshments. Every donor has their temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin tested to ensure it is safe for them to give blood. Although the entire process

Our goal is always to collect blood and get the word out we need it. We really want Marine units to know about this program to increase collection purposes.” “The more people involved in the program the better it is for the military community in general. Not only does this help service members, it helps their families, retirees and the (Veterans Affairs) hospitals,” Torres said. Chief Petty Officer Joel L.

was a little research and they found the ASBP. “One phone call later and the rest is history,” he said. “They made it very easy for us,” Imbody said. “All the ASBP needed from us was a good date where we could provide the most participation. Basically we’re giving back to the military community and giving back to other Marines who are injured, hurt and need blood.” Torres wants people to know the MCB Camp Lejeune-based ASBP is completely mobile and will gladly set up shop anywhere on base. He hopes more units like 2nd AA Bn. will reach out to them and donate.

Right now (2nd AA Bn.) isn’t deployed so this is just one of the ways we can help win the fight — giving blood.”

Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force 12.2 Marines participate in crisis response training LANCE CPL. ADWIN ESTERS Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force 12

Reserve Marines and sailors with Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-12.2 participated in familiarization fire and sustainment exercises with crew-served machine guns and non-lethal weapons systems June 8 and 9. The training provided the opportunity for Marines to implement advanced marksmanship techniques such as, firing while performing 180- degree maneuvers, moving forward and laterally, and engaging targets at unknown distances. The Marines of SpecialPurpose MAGTF-12.2’s command element also trained to build on the unit’s crisis response capability. The MAGTF provides United States Africa Command with training teams for theater security cooperation, as well as a limited crisis response capability. The command element is comprised of Marines and sailors from non-combat related military occupational specialties and provides all the headquarters functions for the MAGTF such as logistics, communications, supply, intelligence and administrative support. The Special-Purpose MAGTF is prepared to support humanitarian relief, peacekeeping, noncombatant evacuations, and limited crisis response operations.

“We want the U.S. Marine Corps to be the service of choice for geographic commanders during crisis response and humanitarian assistance,� said Gen. Joseph Dunford, the assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, during a recent visit to Naval Air Station Sigonella, Sicily. “The time needed to redirect training teams currently operating in Africa is much shorter than deploying a unit from the U.S.� The command element can also provide Marines for crisis response and humanitarian assistance. The training here ensures they will be prepared if called upon. “The goal is to be familiar with non-lethal weapons, and learning the difference between firing non-lethal rounds versus lethal rounds.� said Sgt. Kevin LaConte, a non-lethal weapons instructor for Special-Purpose MAGTF 12.2. The Marines trained with non-lethal weapons such as the Milkor MK-32 multiple grenade launcher, which can fire 22, .60caliber rubber balls out of one 40mm shell and the Mossberg 590 single-barrel shotgun, which can fire a 12-gauge fin stabilized rubber rocket. “The rubber ball rounds are used to disperse crowds in a mob situation while the fin stabilized rounds are used to pinpoint and subdue individual targets,� said LaConte.

Kenneth Fall, operations chief for Special-Purpose MAGTF

12.2. “The range went very well.� The courses of fire also serve as a refresher for the Marines and sailors, who first practiced these skills during pre-deployment training on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. During the two days of training, the Marines stood on line, each donning a full combat-load, and shot their weapons from the three, five, seven,

15, 25 and 50-yard-lines. They fired from the standing, kneeling, and prone positions, and practiced moving forward and laterally. They even trained on fire team movements. The Marines and sailors carried out firing drills called out by an instructor running the range. They received time limits of merely seconds during the drills, forcing them to react quickly. One drill involved

a 25-yard sprint then firing from both the standing and kneeling positions within 11 seconds. “It’s been very exciting to be able to participate in these types of training exercises,� said Cpl. Adeoluwa Sopade, a meteorology and oceanography analyst. “It’s not every day we get to do stuff like this. It is something you look forward to doing when you join the Marines.�

Breaking the retirement stereotype I used to skip over the Retiree Corner because I’m active duty and although near retirement, didn’t feel there was anything there for me. Frankly, I stereotyped retirees who read the Retiree Corner as older, white-haired men with stooped shoulders on their way to a nursing home. Forgive me, but I’m being honest with my unfair stereotype. The sad part was that by profession, I’m a social worker so stereotyping should not be a part of my DNA. Over the years I would approach Randy Reichler, the retired activities office coordinator for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and regular author of this column, with some questions, and became more and more interested in the subject of retired affairs as I watched the nonstereotypical folks – men and women in their 30s and 40s – approaching retirement and having not a clue as to how to prepare for their exit from the military. Recently I heard a financial counselor say there are two types of people, those who prepare “to� retire and those who prepare “for� retirement. I realized most of the active-duty population falls into the first category. We prepare to retire, meaning we know we are going to get out of the military and no longer be periodically whizzing in a bottle and for the first time in a long time deciding what to wear when we get up in the morning. Sounds like preparing “to� retire to me and looking forward to it. Yet, what about preparing “for� retirement; preparing for those years to come for the rest of our lives when our active military life is no more. Are we prepared for retirement pay, while half of our base pay, or close to it, will actually be about one third of the pay we earn now? The reality will be a paradigm shift from spending money for our adult-sized toys like the latest techno merchandise and other fun things to considering how to afford a roof over our heads, medical care, emergency expenses and the reality of a tough job market. In other words, preparing for the real world outside the gate our civilian family and friends

have been dealing with all these years. I can’t emphasize enough, whether you are an E-1 with a medical discharge, an E-5 with less than 20 years perusing another career, or a flag officer, the Retired Affairs Office can offer each level of seniority beneficial information. I am passionate about ensuring service members know what their benefits are and how they should prepare. Whenever I run into someone on their way out the door, whether retiring or simply leaving the service, I ask them if they prepared from a medical standpoint in terms of going through Transition Assistance Program classes, having proper medical documentation of any and all medical conditions, even if they don’t think it’s a condition, and giving them information on who to contact for the information. Sad to say, most active-duty members I’ve spoken with have no clue as to who to speak with or what to do. It’s not that we’re dumb; it’s that we are generally in the military mindset of taking care of our troops and sucking it up when it comes to self. As most active-duty members already know, it is up to us to manage our individual careers; no one will look out for your career like you will. The same applies to retirement or leaving the service. No one is going to manage your future like you. There are things if not taken care of while still in uniform, like the medical documentation piece that will be harder to do once out. This could very well mean less money in your pocket. I would like to encourage all uniformed personnel who are planning on leaving the service to contact the Retired Affairs Office. Become informed about the various retiree and former military groups in the local area or in the area you plan to settle. These groups advocate for the benefits of former service members and their dependents at the highest levels of government; they provide support for the transition to civilian life, and can give invaluable advice and guidance through the process.

Marine Week Cleveland demonstration wows crowd LANCE CPL. MICHELLE PIEHL Headquarters Marine Corps


o m mu n i t y members were able to get a unique look into the heart of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program during Marine Week Cleveland, June 11 through 17. Techniques ranging from basic punches to complex disarming maneuvers wowed audience members in Public Square during a presentation, June 12. “It’s nice to see the actual combat they can do with or without weaponry,” said Hillary Duchnowski at the demonstration. “It’s wonderful for the community and the city to see what these men and women do every day for their country. It’s very impressive.” Duchnowski said she believes the sacrifice given by service members to protect American citizens’ freedoms and rights deserves to be recognized. “It gives us a real picture, a reality check, to see those who put everything on hold and put their lives on the line to protect people they don’t even know,” said Duchnowski, who traveled from Parma to attend the demonstration. Staff Sgt. Tommy M. Lee, a martial arts instructor trainer at the Martial

Arts Center of Excellence in Quantico, Va., fourth degree black belt described the event as a way to show support for the Cleveland community. “Cleveland’s 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, was hit pretty hard during combat operations (in Operation Iraqi Freedom),” said Lee. “It’s more of an honor to be out here to show Cleveland the Marine Corps supports them.” Lee described Marine Week as an opportunity to meet the families and communities that provide support for service members, as well as a way to give a sense of safety and comfort to the public. “When you look at the military, everybody talks about big trucks, big guns and big planes,” said Lee. “A lot of people don’t know about hand-to-hand combat. MCMAP trains not only the physical aspect, but the mental aspect as well.” Following the demonstration of martial arts techniques, Lee and his fellow trainers opened the floor for a question and answer session for community members. “The best part so far has been interacting with the public,” said Lee. “Thank you Cleveland.” The Marine Corps-style martial arts demonstrations occured daily throughout the week.

Clevelanders got a chance to get up close and personal with the gear, vehicles and equipment currently being used by the Marine Corps at the Marine Corps Systems Command display outside the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland June 12. Children enjoyed climbing inside up-armored humvees and other Marine vehicles just like the ones used by Marines in missions worldwide. Owen Slemc said he felt like a Marine when he sat in the humvee. Marines also showed off gear and uniforms, including the newest combat pack. Amanda Rabatin, who is an avid hiker, tried on the pack to compare it to what she wears on her hikes. “I ordinarily carry about 40 pounds,” said Rabatin. “The Marine Corps pack was about twice as heavy. It’s a lot heavier and not as compact. I would definitely not want to hike with it.” One of the more popular items among young and old alike were the Marine robotic systems. The

robots, which included the Talon and the XM1216, are remote-controlled robotic systems used by Marines in combat zones since 2001. There are roughly 5,000 currently in combat zones, said Lindy Kirkland, Marine Corps liaison for Robotic Systems Joint Project Office. “In the past, the bots were used mostly for explosive ordnance disposal Marines,” Kirkland said. “Now, they’re beginning to be used more for recon and patrols.” EOD Marines use robots like the TALON to get a closer look at possible explosive devices. Using small, unmanned ground vehicles like the XM1216, Marines on patrols are able to send the robots into buildings to get footage in hostile areas. This helps protect Marines from surprise ambushes and explosives. “If you can send a robot to do something and save a Marine-life, then why not do it?” Kirkland said. Clevelanders were able to take the robots out for a test drive with remotes much like those used for remote-control cars. Kirkland said the Marine Corps is developing a remote that will enable ground troops to control

t’s the moment when a surfer first stands up on a board that sticks out in their memory. The moment when a surfer is no longer shaky, when they bend their knees with their feet flat on the board and look ahead, gliding through

torrents crashing around them. It’s the moment that truly draws a surfer in. The surfer stands on top of one of the most powerful forces in the world and navigates through it, experiencing control of the elements difficult to find elsewhere. It is truly a wonder how surfing can become integral to a person’s life.

Anglers welcome calm seas to Carolina coast

With the 54th Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament complete despite the blustery and cool weather, the North Carolina coast is now settling into a more seasonal weather pattern. The fishing, although spotty, greatly improved last week. With calmer seas, offshore anglers can get back to the excellent dolphin season. Gaffer dolphin are still being caught between the number 14 buoy and the Big 10 area. Most anglers do not have to go more than 16 miles offshore to find a steady dolphin bite. Along the beach, the Spanish mackerel are starting to return. The Spanish mackerel are running inconsistently along the coast. In some areas, fish can only be caught by deep casting, while others can be seen right along the shoreline. Last Friday, droves of mackerel were

feeding on large glass minnows off Shackleford Banks. With the reappearance of the Spanish mackerel, false albacore tuna are beginning to reappear along the coast as well. Most are only weighing in between two and five-pounds. Anglers are finally beginning to catch slot drum between Ft. Macon and Emerald Isle. Using metal Kastmasters and cut or frozen bait, anglers are reeling in 18 to 27-inch drum. In addition to drum, a few anglers caught short flounder and trout. When it comes to flounder bites, artificial reefs 315 and 320 were busy recently. With the sudden surge of boats staking out water between the two reefs, I suggest anglers try some of the less-fished reefs and rocks. AR 330, 342, 345 and areas like the Keypost Rocks, Lost rocks, and 45-minute Rock are advisable places to anchor your boat for a day of fishing. Anglers may also want to try the rocks east of the AR 342, as well as the Cape Lookout Rock Jetty and the Ft. Macon Jetty. The sheepshead bite is strong near the Morehead Basin. Most anglers are

reeling in fish using fiddler crabs. Many stock shops have live fiddler crabs, as well as spiny sea urchins and other forms of live bait. Interestingly enough, the cobia bite we thought moved north is still alive and well. Most of the fish are under 30-pounds, but anglers reported catches of cobia on menhaden in all the usual places recently. Along the Morehead City and Atlantic Beach Intracoastal Waterway, anglers are catching cobia perfectly sized for an average family meal. One thing possibly holding the cobia around is the reappearance of the schools of menhaden. Schools of these popular bait-fish can be found from Spooner’s Creek west to the Emerald Isle Bridge. Some are also starting to leak out of the inlets, which may serve as a method to bring King mackerel back to the Crystal Coast. Up to now the king mackerel were missing in action all season. The only king mackerel catch I heard about recently occurred 30 miles south of Bogue Inlet. In the marshes the Newport River and Middle Marsh, the red drum fishing is slow, but some good catches of speckled trout, as well as sheepshead and black drum, were reported. Most drum and trout are caught with small, live bait.

Anglers on the piers are reporting a lot of variety, but no steady catches of any single species. Oceanana Pier reported nice bluefish and Spanish mackerel catches. On Bogue Pier, I saw short flounder, scattered bluefish and Spanish mackerel, black drum, sea mullet, blowfish, sea robins and sand perch. I also saw some hogfish, but no large fish. Seaview Pier reported flounder, trout, bluefish, mullet and some small spots. The Surf City Pier had recent catches of Spanish mackerel and bluefish, as well the occasional black drum, hogfish, spots, spades and mullet. The Oceanana Pier reconstruction of the far end continues slowly. The sound-side pier in Emerald Isle on Park Rd. is finished and ready for use. It has a canoe and kayak launch and is 160 feet in length. With its large diameter pilings sunk around 20 feet into the Bogue Sound mud and sand, it is built like the proverbial brick port-opotty, and designed to last the likes of Ophelia. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM, and can be accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page at any time.

Beach safety tips, tricks

Swim smart, safe in coastal waters

I am a fish. I grew up with the ocean in my back yard. As a result of being so close to the beach, I have always been taught beach safety. To a tourist or somebody new to the area, I’m sure my parents looked like the worst parents in the world while they sat on the beach and let their six-year-old swim out to sea. I assure you I knew the boundaries. Yes, I tested them. I flirted with danger, but I never crossed the line. I do, however, understand most people are not raised to be an underwater mammal. Most people come to the beach and are all too aware of what may or may not be lurking beneath the water’s surface. While most families who move to the coast move from further inland, those of us who have been raised on the coast often forget most people weren’t. We forget there is a divide between those who vacation at the beach and those who live here yearround. While beach safety is common knowledge to children raised by the sea, it’s important to remember beach safety is not the same as pool or lake safety.

First thing’s first – never go to the beach without sunscreen. Even if you don’t burn easily, the beach is different than the local pool. The way the sun reflects on the sand and the water makes it easier for some people to get burnt. I always pack a small container of vinegar when I go to the beach. This is an effective treatment for jellyfish stings. Multiple studies suggest dousing the sting with vinegar deactivates the sting of the venom. It is always important to let a lifeguard on duty know about the jellyfish sting, especially if you aren’t sure what kind of jellyfish stung you. Some have more powerful venom than others and may require medical attention. A lifeguard can best decide what type of sting you have based on the severity of the stung area. All area beaches have beach warning flags, specially colored to help locals and tourists determine when the water is safe to swim in. Green flags represent calm waters. Yellow flags suggest caution to swimmers and surfers. Red flags warn beachgoers of strong currents and other high-hazard risks. A double red flag means the beach is closed to the public. The rare purple flag, usually flown alongside a yellow or red flag, suggests the presence of dangerous marine life. Typically, purple flags are not flown to alert people to sharks, but rather other marine wildlife, such as jellyfish or other large

fish. Paying attention to the flag warnings can mean the difference between a nice day at the beach and a day ending with a hospital trip. One thing often overlooked by new-comers to coastal areas are rip currents. While rip currents are usually signaled by a yellow or red flag, they can pop up suddenly in calm waters. If you get stuck in a rip current this summer, do not panic. Instead of worrying and tiring yourself out by fighting the current, swim parallel to the shore. Have faith in the lifeguard’s on the beach and do what they tell you. They are carefully trained but cannot do their job if you are climbing all over them, trying to get out of the water. If you are the type of person who is terrified of becoming shark bait, I’m sorry. I can’t promise you will never be bitten. I don’t control the sharks. Neither do lifeguards. But, if you are that concerned about it, you do have the ability to limit your chances. Large fish often follow schools of smaller fish. Last, remember swimming at the beach is different than swimming in the lake or pool. The currents and the ocean floor are constantly changing. What was over your head at high tide may only be up to your knees at low tide. Check the tide tables before you hit the waves. The beach, while it does pose some safety issues, is certainly nothing to shy away from. Don’t let your fears get in the way of letting yourself enjoy all the beach has to offer. If all else fails, build a sandcastle.

Baseball, softball teams celebrate spring with end-of-season tournament JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

After a long season, it all comes down to this. You spent hours practicing. You listened to your coach intently, made and corrected plenty of mistakes, celebrated victories and held your head high through each loss. You focused on every aspect of the game. Now, it’s your time to shine. This may be the last game you ever play with your team. They’re counting on you. You adjust your helmet and hit your bat against the side of your cleats as you zero in on the pitcher. This is your moment. This is your game. How well you play is up to you. It’s been a long, educationfilled season for the kids of the youth sports program. Dozens of families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune spent countless evenings at the Tarawa Terrace baseball complex this spring. They cheered on their kids, comforted them after losses and celebrated their wins. The young athletes of the youth sports spring softball and baseball programs struck out and hit home runs, made double plays and watched the ball roll between their legs. Through it all, the coaches, volunteers and parents supported and encouraged them. As the season drew to a close and tournament time approached,

teams doubled their efforts to seize the tournament victory. “All the teams have worked really hard, all season long,” said Tracy Garber, whose daughter played with the Dodger’s softball team for three years in a row. “They’ve put in a lot of effort this season.” Garber, who used to play softball, first enrolled her daughter in the softball program to help her grasp an understanding of the importance of teamwork. Already enrolled in piano lessons and horseback riding, both solitary activities, the addition of a team sport to the mix helped her daughter form important social skills. “I wanted her to have the experience of playing a team sport,” explained Garber. “I think team sports are important, as are the lessons you learn in them.” The lessons learned this year were fruitful. As athletes stepped up to bat during the tournament, their eyes swiveled from the pitcher to their coaches, practicing the form of silent communication they perfected over the season. Without the coaching staff, the tournament would be pointless. Instrumental in teaching the fundamentals of the game, the youth sports program coaches gave up their free time to help their young athletes improve and unearth their passion for team sports. “The coaches taught the basics of playing softball, but they also taught a lot about

sportsmanship this year,” declared Garber. “All season they (were) really good with the girls. They taught them the importance of not being a sore loser. No matter what happens, they make sure the girls have fun.” The time and passion handed down from coaches and parents was evident as each athlete took their turn at bat and ran to their position on the field. Coaches and parents cheered for both teams and encouraged their players through missed plays. Not an ill-spoken word about another athlete or coach was heard as the teams battled each other. During the Dodger’s versus Rockie’s softball game, the entire team rallied around a teammate who needed encouragement, opening the eyes of the parents in the stands, and serving as an example of the type of sportsmanship and camaraderie the youth sports program strives to provide to every participant. “At the end of every game, win or lose, the teams and coaches have smiles on their faces,” said Garber. “No matter what happened, they had fun and they’re all smiles when they come off the field,” explained Garber. “That’s the real reason I keep my daughter in the program. It’s what I’m pleased to see her learning this season.” Learning to work with the coaching staff, parent volunteers and the other athletes on

the team also promotes “felllowship and friendship between w ween the kids,” explained Garber. r. “I think military kids aree more willing to make friends, d ds, because they all know whatt it’s like to be the new kid on the block,” Garber said. “They make friends quickly because they have to. Programs like youth sports help them sharpen those skills and remind them to make good friends and cheer each other on, just like friends n nds would do.” While the end-of-season tournament was a competi-tion to test the ability of thee youth sports teams, the lessons so ons learned through the season shined brighter than the detert terhee mination and abilities of the athletes on the field. In keeping p ping o of with the youth sports motto cttive promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, the real story of the h he m mateams was found in the camaraderie between the athletess and coaches, the parents in the stands, and their combined love sports. “We love the game,” said d Garber. “We want our kids to love the game. With a program r ram like this, who wouldn’t lovee it? It’s been a great season.” For more information on available youth sports pro-grams aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, visit www.mccslejee e ex or call the youth sports office at 451-2177.

2nd MLG Marine prepares to compete in Armed Forces Triathlon competition PFC. FRANKLIN E. MERCADO

2nd Marine Logistics Group

Every year the Marine Corps hand picks select individuals to compete in the Armed Forces Triathlon competition, only choosing the most physically fit the Corps has to offer. The 2nd Marine Logistics Group’s own 1st Lt. Sarah Simmler, the commander of air delivery platoon, 2nd MLG, is one of 16 Marines selected to participate in this event at Point Mugu, Calif., June 23. Simmler has been an athlete for the majority of her life. She was a standout in softball, cross country and basketball, which she was recruited to play by the United States Naval Academy. Simmler’s selection has come well earned. As a junior at the academy she joined the triathlon team and won NCAA Division I Collegiate Nationals and was named captain her second year on the team. As soon as Simmler left the academy, her superiors began recruiting her to participate in the triathlon. “(Lt. Col. Gregory Price) started contacting me after I arrived here (in 2011) to participate in the triathlon, but I was

Simmler will be participating in the upcoming Armed Forces Triathlon at Point Mugu, Calif., June 23. unable to,” Simmler said. ”This year (Capt. Justine Whipple) got a hold of me and I told her I was interested.” From there the selection process began. Due to the size of the Marine Corps, it is much harder to try out for a team, so when the Marine administrative message was released soliciting applicants, Simmler submitted her application with her prior races and times. Simmler noted all the races included in an

application are up to the participant to enter on their own behalf. The most recent times are used to determine a Marine’s potential level of competitiveness at the triathlon. Her training is up to par with the best in the Corps, though she admits she worked at the gym a little more than usual to get ready for a different contest. “I’ve been training for a physique competition, so I’ve been lifting a lot

more,” she explained. “I try my best to mix in things to stay in shape. At the academy we would train for three hours doing track workouts, swimming, biking, sprints or longs runs, but that type of workout isn’t feasible right now.” Feasible or not, Simmler maintained her fitness goals and continues to push herself for the upcoming triathlon, which was won by the Air Force for the past two years. “Any opportunity I get

to represent the Marine Corps I want to do (it), because it’s motivating to compete against the other services,” explained Simmler. Simmler also expressed the importance for women to try new things and go against the grain to try something like a triathlon. “Don’t set limits for yourself before you even try them,” said Simmler. “As a female, don’t be afraid to try pull-ups. It’s a great exercise, and it

will give you the confidence to propel you to try other things,” Simmler added. “The triathlon is a prime example of that. People say they could never do it; well I don’t know how many people I’ve told to give it a try, and they find out how much they love it. “The second you show yourself you’re capable of something you didn’t think you were, you unlock the door and the possibilities are endless,” concluded Simmler.

Step Up For Soldiers reels in success LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

The sun was shining and there was not a cloud in sight as military families descended on the Kure Beach Fishing Pier. Fishing poles hung off both sides of the fishing pier as children sat patiently, clinging to their hopes of catching a plethora of fish during a day of fun in the sun at the Children’s Fishing Tournament. Step Up For Soldiers, a volunteer organization dedicated to helping activeduty service members and veterans, hosted their seventh annual Children’s Fishing Tournament on Kure Fishing Pier in Kure Beach, N.C., June 9. More than 120 children were registered for the event, with many more coming and going throughout the day. Everything from food, refreshments, fishing poles and bait were provided for children and adults who participated in the tournament. The mild summer weather combined with the Atlantic breeze made being in the sun for five hours a surprisingly comfortable experience for participants. “The Children’s Fishing Tournament is an effort by us to give back to the families,” said Tom Russell, president and founder of SUFS. “It’s a day of fun fishing for the children, and it’s an opportunity to get military families to spend a day together. The more we keep military families together, the more we can keep our country together.” Everything needed for the tournament was donated by different companies who were eager to lend a helping hand. Prizes were donated to the organization in order to present children with awards for their catch of the day.

“This town really does a lot for this tournament by helping out however they can,” said Russell. “They realize the importance of this event every year, and they try to accommodate us as much as possible so it doesn’t cost us too much to host for the children.” Children and parents lined the pier, baiting fish in hopes of wining a prize for their catch of the day. Trophies were given out to children who caught the ugliest fish, heaviest fish, lightest fish, first and last fish caught, as well as many others. Jim Verdon, vice president of operations for SUFS, said the organization always tries to do something special for the children. During a previous fishing tournament a mother returned from deployment and surprised her child. With the help of SUFS, she was able to coordinate her surprise arrival to the event to see her family for the first time in months. “It’s the kind of things we like to do for these families,” said Verdon. “We just want to give back to those who give everything for us.” The Children’s Fishing Tournament is the big occasion SUFS coordinates every year, but they also hold other events throughout the year, including a 4th of July party next month.

Cpl. Chase Dale surfs at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 15. Dale has been surfing since he was young and believes surfing improves self-confidence, stamina and endurance, and is a good workout for service members.

Surfing is exhilarating. There’s no other feeling in the world like standing up and riding a wave. It’s an intense adrenaline rush. Cpl. Chase Dale, 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division

SURF FROM 1B have spent their whole lives on a surf board and others who have never seen an ocean before their arrival to the area. Surfing brings a sense of self-assuredness to a person, along with an increase in self-esteem, said Cpl. Chase Dale, an anti-tank missileman with 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, and a frequent, longtime surfer. He noted how surfing increases one’s physical attributes as well their mental strength, by building endurance and stamina. Dale has been surfing since his youth and spends most weekends on the coast. As a southern California native, surfing was a part of his curriculum in school. He finds surfing is a great, positive (sport) and provides a great workout. “Surfing is exhilarating,” said Dale. “There’s no other feeling in the world like standing up and riding a wave. It’s an intense adrenaline rush. It’s something you have to feel for yourself.” Dale said surfing is also a humbling experience. While it boosts your confidence when you conquer a wave, the conditions always change and you never ride the same wave twice. “It keeps you from getting cocky,” Dale said. Onslow Beach brought Indo Jax Surf School, based in Wilmington, N.C., aboard the base to give members of the community the opportunity to experience surfing. The school rents surf boards to beach patrons, along with holding a variety of classes to teach all aspects of the military community about surfing. Chris Usry, the manager of Onslow Beach, noticed steady requests for surfing classes and surf board rentals throughout her three years at Onslow Beach. “We’ve been trying to find a surf instructor for a couple of seasons,” said Usry. “We kept hitting walls, but eventually we got lucky. Indo Jax Surf School reached out to us. (Jack Viorel, the owner,) wanted to come out and get involved with the base. He has a really great interest.” Indo Jax is a charity driven organization that reaches out to many. They hold surfing classes and workshops for orphans in India as well as teaching classes for children with autism, cystic fibrosis and the visually impaired. Aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, the surf school holds private surf lessons, group classes and a surfing day camp for children. They also hold Na Lu Warriors, a

free surf therapy program for wounded warriors. “It seems like a good fit,” said Viorel. “I feel like we have a lot to offer the base. We have a nonprofit organization along with our business so we were able to offer (some) free programs.” The Surfing Safari Camp is a traditional surf camp for children 8 years old and older held 9 to 11 a.m. The camp began June 11 and is scheduled to continue until August 24. The cost of the camp is based on the parent or sponsor’s rank, discounts are offered for multiple children who live in the same household. “The program gives children a positive outlet to get attached to,” said Viorel. Viorel added some of his instructors spent their childhoods in the military community, and now act as positive role models to the children. Some became involved in surfing to help handle the stress of a parent’s deployment. All instructors wear uniforms, are trained in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. They go through a highly competitive probationary period before they are hired. Viorel said his instructors are good surfers, patient and understanding to a student’s needs. Na Lu Warriors is scheduled every Friday 10 a.m. to noon. It offers wounded warriors a low-impact sport that is very active and exciting, said Viorel. It can help boost morale to service members faced with limitations. There is also a free project for the children of deployed service members in the works called the Kamali’l Surf Camp. They hope to focus on the therapeutic values of the ocean. The two-day camp is looking to open to 25 children who complete a small essay about their deployed parent. “Surfing is pretty hard, but once you get the hang of it you feel like you can do anything,” said Dale. “People say they’re scared of the water or they are scared of sharks, but I guarantee once you get out on the water and stand up, you’re going to be hooked. I’ve taught a lot of people how to surf and they still do it because they absolutely love it. Surfing is an amazing feeling.”

Kayaking classes kick into high gear JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

There is something about being so close to the water and feeling like she is immersed in nature that has Lory Felipe hooked on kayaking. While she’s only been kayaking a handful of times, the experience left an imprint. However, like many others, Felipe would never have found her appreciation for kayaking without the help of somebody who knows a little more about the sport. Without the help of the Outdoor Adventures staff, kayakers, like Felipe, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune would be up the creek without a paddle. “I always wanted to kayak, but I never really did it before,” said Felipe. “It was just one of those things I said I would do, but put on the back burner until I heard about it through MCCS.” After hearing about the opportunity to kayak on base, Felipe decided to give it a try. Deciding not to start with something too ambitious like a three-hour trip, Felipe signed up for the onehour, guided Kayak In The Sun tour. One hour in the sun was all it took to hook her. “The first time, it was so easy,” explained Felipe. “It was really relaxing and we saw some nice sights. I enjoyed it.” Kayaking became a recent fixture aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, and not just for Felipe. With warmer temperatures and longer sunlit hours at their disposal, the Outdoor Adventures staff is making sure not to waste any time. They have introduced various kayaking activities, which provide patrons with a method of getting outside without getting too wet or doing anything exceptionally strenuous. “This is a really popular thing for us,” explained Marybeth LeMaire, recreation specialist with Outdoor Adventures. “We have a lot of people sign up for the kayaking trips, so we try to make sure we offer a lot of different opportunities for everyone.” LeMaire and the rest of the Outdoor Adventures’ staff members saw exactly how popular the kayaking classes became over the last couple of weeks. People sign up for kayaking classes of all lengths and styles – from kayak-fishing to threehour tours to lengthy voyages down area waterways. However, for the beginning kayaker, the Outdoor Adventures’ Kayak In The Sun tour is the place to start. “Kayak In The Sun is a really good way to get used to kayaking,” explained LeMaire. “It’s only an hour and it’s nothing too strenuous, as long as the weather works with us.” The Kayak In The Sun class gives participants new to the sport the opportunity to learn the basics of kayaking in relatively calm waters along the North Carolina coastline. They learn the proper way to steer kayaks and navigate the wa-

ter with the help of two guides from the Outdoor Adventures staff. For Cody Ashcroft, the chance to Kayak In The Sun was all about getting his feet wet. Visiting his aunt and uncle over summer vacation, Ashcroft said his first time kayaking was more fun than he expected. “I really liked it,” declared Ashcroft. “I had fun floating in the water. I felt like I was moving without trying because the water moved me.” Ashcroft and his aunt discovered the Kayak In The Sun class on accident, when they were at Gottschalk Marina taking a walk and saw the Outdoor Adventures’ office. “We were going to kayak in the Marina, but it was closed when we went, so we decided to do it with (Outdoor Adventures),” Ashcroft said. “I didn’t really care who we did it with – I just liked being out and doing it.” Ashcroft was pleased to learn kayaking wasn’t all work and no play. While learning to paddle and steer himself against an opposing current and winds during his kayaking class, he also learned a lot about the N.C. coast. “I saw lots of oyster beds, and it was fun to be in the creek where all the grass and stuff was,” explained Ashcroft. “I would do it again whenever I could. It’s cool to see everything and do something fun with my aunt.” Like Ashcroft, other new participants to the kayaking class enjoyed the chance to do something different. Rebecca Hernandez attended the class with her sister after hearing how much fun kayaking was. While the Kayak In the Sun Class Hernandez attended June 14 was more challenging than most, thanks to wind and a strong current, Hernandez was able to learn a new skill during the class. “It was a good workout,” joked Hernandez. “My arms are a little sore after fighting with the wind for an hour.” Hernandez, like most new participants, spent the first half of the Kayak In The Sun class learning how to make her paddling technique effective. While learning to steer and balance herself in her kayak, she joked about running

Hernandez’s first time kayaking was a “challenging workout.” into oyster beds and paddling in circles. “You have to learn how to be stable in your kayak,” said Hernandez. “With the current so strong, I was drifting a lot whenever I stopped paddling and I felt a little wobbly, but I think I had it by the end.” “Everyone did a really good job,” said LeMaire, regarding the June 14 Kayak In The Sun tour. “Even though we had a little extra wind and the current was stronger than normal, everyone picked it up. I was surprised to see how well (Ashcroft) did, especially since it was his first time against the wind. He caught on.” LeMaire hopes to see more patrons signing up to enjoy the Kayak In The Sun and other Outdoor Adventures’ programs over the summer. “It’s a good time to get out and do stuff,” exclaimed LeMaire.

The ceremonial dig for the NICOE Satellite Center Camp Lejeune occurred aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune June 13. The new center will be dedicated to the research and treatment of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress.

CPL. DAMANY S. COLEMAN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


he Department of Defense, privately funded and non-profit organizations all make massive contributions to their part in the fight against traumatic brain injuries and posttraumatic stress disorder. In 2010, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund completed construction of the National Intrepid Center of Excellence at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. The NICOE is one of the premier efforts in researching, diagnosing and treating traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress and related injuries sustained by military personnel. Wounded troops, families and friends aboard Marine Corps

Base Camp Lejeune were more than happy to attend the ground breaking ceremony for the base’s own NICOE, near the already established Wounded Warrior Battalion – East headquarters and Fisher House June 13. “This is about more than brick and mortar,” said Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., assistant commandant of the Marine Corps. “What we are really doing here today is building a commitment to our wounded warriors and their families. We’re rebuilding the lives of those who made a significant sacrifice for our nation.” This NICOE, which is one of several to be built, will serve as a satellite location to the one built in Maryland. It is said to further enhance TBI research, diagnosis and treatment. Each NICOE’s construction budget is approximately $10 million and will be an estimated

25,000 square feet. The Fisher House Foundation plans to build a Fisher House to accompany each NICOE satellite center to accommodate families, but since Camp Lejeune already has one up and running, the base is one step ahead of the game. “I am very impressed with the work (Camp Lejeune) completed, prior to even starting this satellite,” said Arnold Fisher, philanthropist and honorary chairman of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. “I know there are quite a few Marines in this audience who came home with some problems. We will do everything possible to make you better. When you raise your right hand to defend this country and you return home with an issue, it is this country’s responsibility to help you.” Maj. Stephen Taylor, with Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, who was di-

agnosed with PTSD, said even though the care provided at the WWBN-East is a great program, it can only handle a certain number of troops at a time. “Having the NICOE here, we can push Marine or sailors (to go), and they can go back and be productive members of their commands much faster,” said Taylor. “It is going to put (getting help) at the forefront, and I think a lot of commands will participate in it.” Taylor, who was diagnosed with a TBI earlier this year, said more often than not, these wounded troops end up waiting for treatment at their units, which can never come fast enough. “I just left the NICOE (in Maryland) this past year,” said Taylor. “I told myself I wanted to get all of the treatment I could while I can, and experience different procedures such as acupuncture and electro-

therapy. When I came home, I could continue the treatment I had there, and work on the practices and courses they provided to me. I think it was beneficial to getting me over the hump and how to deal with certain stresses in my life.” Lance Cpl. Jeffrey Cole, who is currently receiving treatment for his TBI at the WWBn-East, said it’s a very reassuring feeling to know he has people who are willing to do anything they can to help him. “It’s good to know you have help from civilian organizations, your chain of command and the Marine Corps as a whole,” said Cole. “You can’t ask for more. This center will help out a lot more wounded service members coming in, who are dealing with their issues. This will help them out greatly, hopefully making them better and able to function better in any kind of setting.”

America’s forgotten fight for independence Marine lifeguard STAFF SGT. THERESA E. SENG

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Many Marines take comfort in the fact as long as there is a Marine Corps, as long as flags are raised aboard installations, as long as there are holidays such as Memorial Day and Flag Day, they will never be forgotten. They may be gone, whether expiring in battle or fading away decades after their service ended, but they know they will never be forgotten. However, it seems possible America is neglecting a decisive war in her formation of independence. In what war did Americans fight the British? What war was fought for land accumulation and freedom - both in sea and on land? What war did Francis Scott Key write the “Star-Spangled Banner?” The correct answer for all of the above is the War of 1812. This year marks the bicentennial of the declaration of war by President James Madison against the British. The year 1812 forced upon the nation America’s second war of independence, or rather the war to repel the British notion to re-establish rule in the states. Marines took part in numerous naval operations during the War of 1812, as well as participating in the defense

of Washington, D.C., at Bladensburg, Md., and fighting alongside Andrew Jackson in the defeat of the British at New Orleans. However, there is a danger lurking amongst the American public, even within the Marine Corps, where some warriors seem to be overlooked. The bicentennial of the War of 1812 approaches, and many may know there was a “War of 1812,” but it is not a campaign easily recognized or even acknowledged. Every Marine learns in boot camp, albeit briefly, about the Battle of Bladensburg, Md., in the defense of the nation’s capitol against the British, and the Brits’ defeat in New Orleans. They also learn of British commander’s respect for the Marines’ fierce fighting and pride even in the face of defeat, and because of it the British refrained from burning both the commandant’s quarters and the barracks. Both were major battles during the War of 1812 where Marines fought gallantly, but how often do those in the Corps or the American public remember the numerous naval operations on the Great Lakes where Marines, both regulars and augments from the Army infantry, fought in heinous naval battles offending British war ships and prevent-

ing them from entering from the north into Pennsylvania? Those stories often are overlooked. There aren’t many tales of Lieutenant John Brooks, under the command of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry, leading his band of mostly untested, unsalted Marines in the protection of Perry’s fleet against the British who were outnumbered and in precarious straights as their food supply ran low. Nor are many tales of how the highly visible Marines aboard the ships, manning the cannons and firing volley after volley from their muskets, were marred and lost their lives to the battle. Veterans of the most recent wars in American history, such as Viet Nam, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, have comfort of knowing their contributions to this country will not be forgotten. Individual Marine’s actions are documented in books and on film. Graphic video games illustrate historic battles for the average American kid to play and unwittingly learn about. They are immortalized in monuments in Washington, D.C. The stories are rarely told of Sgt. James Tull, who finally dragged his mangled, bloody stump of a leg below SEE FORGOTTEN 3C

rescues swimmer


On a sunny, clear spring day at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune there was a frantic call for help. Lance Cpl. Justin McDaniel, a lifeguard with the Beach Detachment of Headquarters and Support Battalion, quickly went into action. A swimmer suffered extreme muscle cramps after being caught in the heavy surf and undercurrent of the waves. McDaniel pulled him from the water, saving his life and claiming the first rescue of the season. “I saw a group, and they started screaming for help,” said McDaniel. “I jumped over the railing and ran over, but I couldn’t see (who was in danger). He was in between the waves. Finally, I found him and snatched him up.” It all happened in the blink of an eye, said McDaniel. The man was awake and able to keep himself afloat but was no match against the undertow pulling him further and further away from his friends. McDaniel said the man looked very scared and was incredibly grateful to be freed from the undertow. “He was exhausted,” said McDaniel. “When we got to the shore I tried to help him stand up but he couldn’t.” McDaniel, originally an assault amphibious vehicle crew chief from Aiken, S.C., was initially shocked by the experience. While he looks the part with a deep tan and sunglasses, it was only recently he was in a course learning how to be a lifeguard. “When it happened I thought, ‘Wow, this is actually happening. I’m doing what I was trained for,’” said McDaniel, SEE LIFEGUARD 2C

Marine Corps Engineer School welcomes new commanding officer LANCE CPL. SCOTT W. WHITING Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


he Marine Corps Engineer School aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune conducted a change of command ceremony at Courthouse Bay June 15. Col. Peter M. Raney, commanding officer of MCES for the last two years, relinquished command of the school to Lt. Col. Jeffrey J. Johnson. Johnson served as the command inspector general for Marine Corps Installations East for the past year before assuming command of the school. The majority of the Marines in the ceremony were students currently attending the school. The 2nd Marine Division Band also was in attendance and provided music for the event.

Sgt. Maj. Veney Cochran, command sergeant major, handed the unit guidon to Raney who then passed it onto Johnson, signifying the official relinquishing of authority and responsibilities. Raney spoke with gratitude for the opportunity he had to be the commanding officer of the school, saying the Marines he worked with had the greatest work ethic of any command he was in charge of. He thanked former co-workers and family for their encouragement and presence at the ceremony. Johnson spoke after Raney and thanked friends and family for supporting him. He said he looked forward to taking charge of MCES and plans to pick up right where Raney left off. Raney is assuming command of Marine Corps Installations East command inspector general, which was Johnson’s previous post.

One of the most difficult and uncomfortable topics to talk about is suicide. Within the Marine Corps key components of unit readiness is to be vigilant, caring, receptive and always in tune with your fellow Marines. Suicide is not a pleasant topic, but it can never be pushed aside because it is devastating for a family, unit and community. Continuing with our series within Resilience Education, Robin Schoolfield, the Resilience Education Branch manager for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, explains the Suicide Awareness for Families class. RR – What can Suicide Awareness for Families do to train a person to watch for warning signs without having it come across as completely negative energy? RS – No matter the topic, prevention and education should be considered the first positive step to awareness and behavioral changes. Think of this class like learning CPR. When learning CPR, we don’t put our head down on the mannequin’s chest and cry because its heart stopped. With the skill we learned we lace our fingers and start compressing with the hope of restarting the heart or at least helping the victim until emergency services arrive. When a family member takes a suicide awareness class, our hope is to empower them and enable them to help someone in need. RR – If someone were to attend Suicide Awareness for Families would it just help them at home, or can it assist them in other settings as well? RS – Suicide Awareness for Families will help those who take the class to recognize the warning signs for anyone they interact with. Once someone recognizes the warning signs they can assist those in need. To offer another analogy, when someone is choking they usually grab their throat. We learn in CPR and FirstAid training to ask, “Are you choking? Can I help?” Then we begin the Heimlich maneuver. We need to approach suicide in the same manner. Most of the time there are signs providing the opportunity to help someone in need.

RR – Will this class address re-integration? RS – No, reintegration information is offered in combat and operational-stress-control classes. Marines and sailors receive this information before returning home, and family members are provided an overview during return and reunion-briefs. There are also great resources and information at http:// RR – What would be the appropriate thing to do if an individual finds someone is experiencing thoughts of suicide? RS – First, if someone is in immediate danger call 9-1-1. Do not hesitate. Otherwise use the acronym R.A.C.E. to get family members, friends, fellow warriors and neighbors the help they need. R – Recognize distress. A – Ask if they are considering suicide or if they need help. C – Care. E – Escort them to the care they need. RR – Are the class schedules still available aboard MCB Camp Lejeune? RS – For more information please call 451-2865 or visit index.html. Suicide prevention is all about staying alert to the situations surrounding you. The Marine Corps culture of honor, courage and commitment requires everyone who wears the uniform or supports the warfighter to care about one another. By taking the steps necessary when confronted with a potentially tragic situation, we can show we care. Always remember at MCCS we are proud to serve those who serve. Editor’s note: Mark Munger is the Resource Branch manager for Marine Corps Community Services aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. He is a retired master sergeant responsible for the execution of Information & Referral Program and Relocation Assistance Program for MCCS, Camp Lejeune. He can be contacted at or 451-1056.

Zinder shares memories of his time at NHCL LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

For the past two years Navy Capt. Daniel J. Zinder watched over those who take care of service members and their families aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune as the commanding officer of Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. In a ceremony aboard the base June 8 Zinder passed the mantle on to Navy Capt. David Lane and prepared for his new post in Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit aboard Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan. Before his departure he took the time to share some memories with the military community. Q. What led you to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune? A. Navy medicine tries to place people in locations they think the person will fit best. I did quite a bit of time in the Marine Corps already as a surgeon. I spent a year in Iraq with 1st Marine Expeditionary Force in 2006, and then I was a battalion surgeon at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. I spoke the language, as they say. So the senior leaders in Navy medicine thought I would fit in here. Q. How do you feel about working with Marines? A. I love working with Marines. You always know where they stand. The nice thing about Marines is they approach everything as a full-frontal assault. You know what’s coming. They don’t play games, and they’re very direct so it’s very easy to see what problems need to be addressed. I love it. Q. What were you expecting when you first came here? A. I wasn’t sure. I got several phone calls from many people who were in command here when I received my orders saying that they were the best orders in the Navy. I was surprised by what I found here. I thought people were telling me this because of the mission: taking care of Marines and all of the good work going on in the hospital. Those are great things worth coming here in themselves, but they were talking about something else. The thing about Lejeune is the community. The retiree community here, as well as Onslow County, is just wonderful. The peo-

ple are so welcoming and helpful, and good to the military. It’s something I’ve never experienced before. I think our distance from big-city life makes (Onslow County) a unique place. It was a very pleasant surprise. It made me understand why people called to tell me how good it was here. Q. What was it like working with the communities and retirees? A. Well, the involvement from different organizations was great. A great example is the Military Affairs Committee with the Chamber of Commerce. They are a wonderful group of people who pay money to join an organization that does nothing except good things for the military. They also honor a military member of the month with a large dinner. They meet to discuss what they can do to help the military. I think it’s incredible. These are people running businesses in town, many of whom have no other affiliation with the military. One of my frustrations being here is I can’t take care of all the retirees in the hospital who I’d love to take care of. We’re staffed for our wartime mission and our first priority is active-duty service members. If there are available appointments we care for family members and retirees. Because active duty is our priority we are unfortunately unable to care for the family members and retiree community at the hospital to the same extent they care for us. They are great advocates for us even when we can’t fully reciprocate. We do what we can. We volunteer to serve at retiree breakfasts, and we hold a retiree health fair to assist in any way we are able to. We’re here because of them. The only reason we’re able to sit here is because they were in our place once before. We’re standing on their shoulders, and we can never forget it. Q. What do you think you will miss the most? A. I’m going to miss the staff, the people I get to work with everyday who are so incredible and talented. The best thing I learned here in command is to stay out of the way. Our staff is extremely talented and incredibly capable of getting things done correctly. They are always looking for the best way to take care of our patients. Q. What changed during your time here? A. Physically there’s been a lot of con-

LIFEGUARD FROM 1C with a soft southern accent. “Adrenaline really started kicking in.” He was told by previous lifeguards that he may not get the opportunity to save anybody and most times beachgoers are safe throughout the summer. However, McDaniel has no qualms about rescuing somebody if necessary. He trained for weeks and received certifications through the Red Cross to save people in open water, just as he did that day. “It’s just natural, I reckon,” said McDaniel. “I just like helping people.” Being a lifeguard was not the first job where people’s lives could fall into his hands. Before he joined the Marine Corps, McDaniel was a volunteer firefighter and still hopes to make firefighting a career once his enlistment ends.

struction; we’re adding a big wing and a new emergency room. Dr. Lane will be able to cut the ribbon in about six months, which is a great honor. The Marine Corps went through some growth and is now figuring out how to decrease in size. The political climate through the wars changed a bit, but those are all details. The most important thing not changed is our mission. We strive to provide the highest quality and safest care possible to the people who we are taking care of. It’s something we’ve always focused on. For instance, I’ve said we’re never going to let the construction get in the way of our quality and safety. We’re always looking for ways to raise the margin of safety for our patients. Despite all the things changing around us, whether it is politics or finances, our main job is to make sure our quality and safety don’t change. I look at the changes as peripheral. I figure out what’s going on, and I make sure we maintain normalcy while it’s happening, because changes aren’t that big of a deal. I look at how it’s going to effect us, and how I can ward off from it impacting care. Q. What message do you want to leave behind for hospital patients? A. Any time there is a transition in senior leadership, people worry about what’s going to happen. Because of the quality of the staff and caliber of Dr. Lane’s capabilities, there’s nothing to worry about. The care we provide will be the same high quality and personalized care. Q. What’s your favorite memory here? A. There have been so many different things, and they are all different and unique. There’s no stand out because I’ve done so many cool things here. I got to work with this wonderful staff. I’ve done different things around the base. I was honored as guest speaker at the Chaplain Corps Ball. Many things come to mind when I think about it. I’m just a poor country doctor from Phoenix, and here I am doing this job. Q. You were here through many natural disasters the last few years, can you share your experiences? A. The tornado didn’t affect us directly on a large scale medically speaking, so we’re really lucky. There was the baby who was injured, but he’s doing well.

McDaniel’s experience can be summed up by his outstanding performance and use of vigilance. “You never know when something is going to happen,” said McDaniel. “You have to be ready to go at a moment’s notice.” Cpl. Nathan Frappier, a fellow lifeguard, was also there during the rescue. While McDaniel retrieved the swimmer, Frappier called for further assistance and managed the scene. Frappier believes the swimmer’s cramps were due to dehydration. “If you’re out here and not drinking water, your body is not going to respond well to the heat,” said Frappier. “While most Marines know it, many civilians don’t.” Frappier wants beachgoers to remain aware while having fun.

We were lucky with the hurricane too. The wind speeds decreased long before it got to us. One of the coolest things we did was have pregnant mothers, staff members and their families stay at the hospital, including pets. We had a hallway full of pets in a separate area so infection control was in check. The veterinarian came to monitor the animal and their families visited them during their stay. It only lasted two days. It turned out to be a big deal, but I didn’t realize it at the time. The outcry of joy from people was beyond my imagination. It just seemed like the right thing to do, so we did it. The hurricane was a big deal for us because we were all hunkered down, sleeping here and taking care of people. We wondered how we would get through it at the time. Looking back on it, it was easy. It’s all of the unknowns as you’re going forward that are concerning, how to ward things off and prepare for it were big concerns. Q. Where did the idea for allowing pets in the hospital during the hurricane originate? A. A staff member asked what they would do with their pets if they were bringing their families. We said to bring them in. Pets are a part of their families. We weren’t going to say leave your dog in a house that might get ruined. We figured it out, had some help, ran it by the veterinarian and got it done. Q. Is there a message you’d like to share with hospital employees? A. Continue with all of your great work. I’m really proud of you. This community will always be in good hands as long the staff keeps the same level of dedication and level of excellence they maintain now. Q. Do you have any parting words? A. It was a great pleasure. I hope I can come back here some day. Zinder is looking forward to rewarding, meaningful experiences and an exciting future in Afghanistan. He wants NHCL to continue to grow and thrive after his departure, and sees a great future here. He trusts the hospital is in good hands with Lane. Lane is coming from Marine Corps Forces Pacific where he worked as a force surgeon. “I can’t think of a place I’d rather be than here,” said Lane. “I like being a part of naval medicine and what the Navy does for the Marine Corps, so this is really exciting.”

“There is always a risk for danger,” said Frappier. “(Patrons) should always feel comfortable enough to talk to us if they see something they don’t think is safe. They can tell us, and we’ll do our part to take care of it.” McDaniel said guests should also watch the current and understand their limitations. If a guest should doubt their ability to manage the water, he suggests they get out of the water until they can be confident in their ability to deal with the conditions. “We’re ready to save Marines, their families and friends,” said Frappier. “We’re not here just to look good. We’re here to save lives and ensure the safety of the beach.” For more information about Onslow Beach, visit

New energy conservation program begins for all base housing residents 2ND LT. SARAH E. BURNS Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

All residents living in base housing will begin receiving electric bills within the next year as part of a new residential energy conservation program being implemented by Headquarters Marine Corps and Marine Corps Installation Command at all Marine installations. Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry, commander of Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, will kick off the first town hall meeting scheduled June 28 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Base Theater aboard MCB Camp Lejeune for all residents of base housing, including the air station, in order to inform residents about the new energy conservation program. The purpose of the residential energy conservation program is to reduce resi-

dential energy consumption by rewarding those who conserve energy and charging others for excess use. This will control resident’s energy over consumption and lower the overall usage. The savings from the returned energy cost will be put to private-partner venture qualityof-life improvements. Billing will begin this fall. The first three months will serve as the ‘mock’ billing practice period to allow residents time to become familiar with the program and assess their energy consumption. Actual billing will begin in the spring with some residents receiving monetary refunds for conserving energy while others will receive bills for over consumption of electricity, said Lt. Col. Bryan F. Lucas, MCIEAST operations officer for installations, facilities and environment. Residents will receive the finalized ‘live’ billing in spring and summer of 2013. Atlantic Marine Corps

Community housing and Lincoln Military Housing will be on different schedules. During the mock and live billing, every home will be assigned to a like-type group where their monthly average usage will be calculated. Homes will be grouped by neighborhood, number of bedrooms, square footage, and year built. Homes not occupied for the full month are not included in the calculation. The monthly average usage will be multiplied by the current electric rate to obtain the monthly average electric bill. Continuous buffers will be set 10 percent above and below the monthly average usage to account for differences in family size and differences in like-type home groupings. New leases are required to reflect the new requirements of the RECP program. “Before the ‘live’ billing all AMCC residents will be required to sign a new lease,”

2011 Consumer Confidence Reports to be posted

said Dixie Lainer-Johnson, strategic marketing manager of AMCC Lend Lease. “Even if they are still in their initial six months.” There will be an addendum provided with further specifics on the RECP program for residents living in Lincoln Military Housing, said Molly Fretag, senior leasing specialist for Lincoln Military Housing. Wounded warriors and residents with exceptional family members may request a waiver from participation in the RECP through the military housing office, but families waived from the program will not be eligible for rebates. Multiple town hall meetings to inform and answer any questions about the RECP are scheduled from June 2012 until March 2013 and are open to the public. Please bring any further questions to the town hall meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. June 28 at the Base Theater.

Water consumers at Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and throughout the country will soon receive easy-tounderstand Consumer Confidence Reports enabling them to make informed choices affecting the health of their families and themselves. What is a Consumer Confidence Report? As a result of the Consumer Confidence Rule developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in August 1998, all public water systems, including the water supply systems aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, are required to publish an annual report on the quality of drinking water provided to consumers. The annual Consumer Confidence Report is a report card to provide facts about the drinking water aboard the installation. The report identifies the source of our drinking water and details any contaminants detected during the reporting year. It also provides important health information. MCB Camp Lejeune’s Environmental Management Division will deliver Consumer Confidence Reports to all housing residents in the next few weeks. The Consumer Confidence Report will also be posted on official bulletin boards in all buildings throughout the base. In addition, copies of the 2011 Consumer Confidence Report will be available at the Public Affairs Office in building 67. For additional information contact Steven Whited at 451-5068 or the Public Affairs Office at 451-5655. The Consumer Confidence Report will also be posted on the EMD web page at lejeune.

FORGOTTEN FROM 1C deck to locate a surgeon after being hit with a British cannon ball, or Pvt. David Christie, who was pierced by a massive splinter in the shoulder, which finally migrated through to his hip before he closed his eyes for the last time. Rare are the stories told of Pvts. James Bird, William Burnett, Henry Vanpool or John Garwood who all suffered similar fates. These are stories deserving to be told and remembered as vividly as any other, but as the nation approaches the bicentennial of the War of 1812, America must never forget the heroes who fought or the battles that literally blew our enemy out of the water determining the path of the nation, because no matter how many times the flag of battle was raised on Lake Erie or flew above the cannons at Fort McHenry, they ensured it was never raised upside down. These are Marines who deserve to be remembered for their bravery and gallantry just as Marines of recent generations want to be remembered for their sacrifice. We shouldn’t need a holiday like Memorial Day or Flag Day, or a bicentennial to remember our forefathers of the distant past. It is a grand gesture to raise the large garrison flag every Sunday and holiday out of honor, but after all, 200 years is a drop in the bucket compared to some countries. We need to remember all our heroes for their sacrifice, bravery and gallantry, but most importantly remember them because they were our brothers. Remember them because Marines are always faithful and promise they will never forget. Information for this article was gathered from leatherneck/war-1812-leathernecks-lake-erie.

WTB welcomes new OFF-LIMITS ESTABLISHMENTS commanding officer The following businesses are designated by the base commander as “off-limits”


Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Weapons Training Battalion, Marine Corps Installations East – Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune received a new commanding officer during a change of command at Stone Bay June 15. Lt. Col. Ivan I. Monclova relinquished command of WTBN to Lt. Col. Carlos A. Vallejo in the bright, morning ceremony. “As the installation’s commanding general, a priority is to support the operating forces and to support the warfighter,” said Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Gorry. “No command we have does this more directly than Weapons Training Battalion.” The command was initially activated in January 1943 as Rifle Range Detachment, to provide marksmanship training for Marines during World War II. It was deactivated shortly after WWII ended and was inoperable until April 1950. It was not until 1996 the unit was redesignated as Weapons Training Battalion. Presently, WTBN trains more than 26,000 Marines annually for their pistol and rifle marksmanship qualifications. It also hosts various competitions including the Marine Corps shooting matches. “The bottom line is every Marine is a rifleman, so marksmanship and marksmanship training is paramount to our job in defending the United States,” said Gorry.

“The commander not only supports me, but the Marines, and Lt. Col. Monclova has done an absolutely superb job in terms of his leadership and his awesome sense of responsibility.” Monclova took command June 1, 2010, and since helped distribute 200 million dollars for construction and renovations of facilities aboard the training area. “It’s a great place to be, and it was a great tour,” said Monclova. “But any commander in this spot knows we are only standing here because we have a lot of support and help from within and without the unit.” Monclova thanked many of the units that support the battalion in ensuring the unit provides the best training possible. “You look at (the Marines in formation) and they don’t look like a lot of Marines, but what you don’t see is the 800 to 900 Marines we have out here a week. You don’t see the Marines who cut the grass, and build hundreds of targets a week. It’s like a factory out here. It never stops.” Oncoming commander, Lt. Col. Carlos A. Vallejo, however, is up for the challenge. “Over the past week I’ve seen how a compressed shooting schedule really puts a lot of stress on the Marines, and they really do an excellent job,” said Vallejo. “I’m extremely honored and humbled I’ve been selected to command this battalion. I know leading this command is a huge privilege. I look forward to serving with (all the Marines).”

Members of the Class of 2012 celebrate after being presented with their diplomas during Lejeune High School’s graduation ceremony at the Base Theater aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday.

Graduates strengthen familial bond with final farewell AMY BINKLEY

Assistant managing editor

High school is a right of passage 13 years, 156 months, 4,745 days and countless numbers of hours in the making. For alumni, a mere mention of the common experience evokes as many different memories as names on diplomas. Dances, heartbreaks, tests and teachers make their mark on the minds of those who’ve walked the halls. When Lejeune High School’s graduating class of 2012 looks back, however, they will all remember one thing. They were a family. “I’ve witnessed the growth of these students,” said LHS principal Eric Steimel. “They established a strong sense of camaraderie. They take care of business and, most importantly, each other.” Families and friends gathered to watch 73 seniors become alumni during the LHS graduation at the Base Theater aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday. “We’re finally achieving a goal we’ve

worked toward almost our entire lives,” noted Ashley Teague, class president. “The hard work does not stop here. High school is over, but our lives are just beginning.” Dressed in red gowns and caps with gold tassels, the military dependents walked p proudly y to the stage and settled e in to hear last ed bits of wisdom from their t peers and directions from their leaders. l “This evening, you u will join a distinguished class off alumni and earn the title Devil Pup,” u Steimel up,” addressed to the students. deents. “You’ve changed, but these changes h hanges have not been without sacricrrifice. You too serve our u ur country.” As the sons and daughters of service members, the graduates barely remember a time without war, deployments and other hardships

of military families. The Global War on Terror began when they were only in second grade. However, it is the unique experience of military life that will forever bond the class – no matter how different each student may be. “This is my y 27th ggraduation,” , stated Jeanette Martinez, a sponsor and school employee. “Each one has something special SEE GRADS 7D

Crime-busting film fans feel ‘Safe’ with predictable story Now playing at Camp Lejeune “SAFE” (R) “Safe” is a New York gangland thriller about a former elite agent who fights to rescue a young girl. Jason Statham (“The Mechanic,” “Killer Elite,” “Transporter”) stars as Luke Wright, a former black ops super cop, who is now a second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit. Luke leads a life of routine beatings and small rewards until the day he refuses to throw a fight. Now, the vengeful Russian mafia boss is making an example of him by murdering his family and completely cutting him off from his former life. Homeless and devastated, Luke wanders the street of New York haunted by guilt and tormented by knowing he will always be watched, and any relationship he may form will be doomed from the start. But when he encounters a frightened young Chinese girl, Mei, played by Catherine Chan, being pursued by the same men who killed his wife, Luke jumps into action and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. He discovers Mei is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for a Chinatown Mob boss, played by James Hong. Luke also discovers Mei apparently holds a priceless numerical code

the mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD force will kill for. Realizing he is the only one Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city’s brutal underworld to save an innocent girl’s life and maybe redeem his own. Robert John Burke (“Limitless,” Brooklyn Finest”) co-stars as Captain Wolf; and Chris Sarandon (“Fright Night”) can be seen as Mayor Tremello. Writer and director Boaz Yakin (“Uptown Girls,” “Remember the Titans,” “A Price Above Rubies”) fills this action movie with the same testosterone-heavy formula Statham is known for playing in his previous films. “Safe” is a standard gangster and crime-busting film audiences have seen numerous times. However the die-hard fans of Statham probably will think otherwise. Now playing in Jacksonville “PROMETHEUS” (R) “Prometheus” is a science fiction thriller set in the late 21st century about a spaceship called Prometheus headed off to a distant planet whose inhabitants visited Earth long ago. A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe, where they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of

Struggling to survive, it becomes clear the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind.

Idris Elba (“Thor”) as Janek, the captain of the Prometheus; Sean Harris (“Brighton Rock”) as Fifield, a geologist; Rafe Spall (“One Day”) as Millburn, a botanist; and Patrick Wilson (“The Ledge”) as Shaw’s Father. Director Ridley Scott (“Alien,” “Blade Runner,” “Gladiator,” “Thelma & Louise”) returns to outer space with the genre he helped define to create another exciting alien mythology. This return trip to the alien universe is talked about as a prequel to the 1979 epic “Alien.” However this outer space tale has a separate plot and context. Even so it will

evoke “Alien” memories. Scott shot the deepspace mission on location in Iceland and again collaborated with Marc Streitenfeld who composed the wonderful musical score for the film. “Prometheus” is the highly anticipated, topsecret original science fiction spectacle where scientists discovered a key to mankind’s beginning, and perhaps its end. The space horrors and eye-popping visual images can also be seen in terrifying 3-D. Ms. Huneycutt is the public affairs assistant at the base Public Affairs Office.

Reading can create and stimulate imagination in the minds of young children. Studies also show reading is beneficial in developing young minds. The Marine Corps Exchange aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune hosted a children’s book fair June 16 where children could sit down and talk with authors about reading, writing or whatever they wanted to. Glenna C. Orr, author of two books and 2011 Mom’s Choice Awards Winner, was at the fair and promoted her books, while talking to many children who came by. Orr fully embraced the concept of the book fair by bringing a beloved children’s book character to life by wearing a Clifford the Big Red Dog costume, which attracted parents and children alike. Orr took many pictures with young kids in her outfit throughout the day. “The manager of the exchange asked me to come and be a part of the festivities,” said Orr. “I love being able to talk with families and children. I love doing story time with them and share the experiences I had with the children on base.”

Orr goes to different military installations throughout the year, including MCB Quantico, Va., and Fort George G. Meade, Md. “It’s all about reaching out to the children on base and talking to them about their own stories as well,” she said. “I think we can learn a lot from children and their initiatives, thoughts and ideas. We’ve been talking about what they like to do and their experiences in school whenever they come sit down with me.” The book fair started in the morning and lasted until the early afternoon with families bringing their young ones for pictures, books, or just to talk to Orr about her work and what she does. She read from her books and children gathered around and listened. After she read a passage she would converse with the kids about their home and school lives. Orr’s books, “Hearts Always Open” and “Open Minds, Open Hearts,” were on display at the book fair for people to look at, read and purchase. Along with personally signing books, the families purchased, Orr also gave away a few copies to some children during the event. “My husband is retired Army,” said Orr. “So when we had overseas tours,

Children were attracted to the bright red costume and kept visiting Orr throughout the day to hear her read some of her stories. I would teach at the (Department of Defense) schools when we were there, and my teaching profession became a

very big part of my life. Whenever I get to speak with children again about their lives, it really makes me happy.”

Chaplain’s Corner

Reach out to someone NAVY LT. YOUNG IL J. HAN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

I’ve recently started texting. In case you were wondering where I have been all these years, I was holed up somewhere in a place reserved for technologically backward people who still like to talk on the phone. However, I find myself getting comfortable with this medium, and it’s starting to worry me. How about you? Do you find yourself unable to connect with real, live human beings in actual discourse as you look into their eyes and observe their body language? Does texting alleviate or excuse our failure to go deeper in our conversations and relationships? The obvious example is when husbands and wives, or parents and children communicate through texts from right across the room. It’s not funny; it’s sad. As a parent of two autistic children, I am well aware social interaction is and will be an ongoing challenge for them. Their lack of eye contact and inability to pick up on social cues as it relates to situational awareness forces my wife and I as parents to be deliberate in conversations with our children. But I wonder if we as a generation are heading in this direction with our texts and tweets, in a direction leading to an inability to communicate effectively with individuals we are in contact with on a daily basis who shape almost every aspect of our lives. Can you imagine if God chose to relate to us in this manner, with short data bursts and transmissions from afar? The reality is God came down, became flesh, looked us in the eyes and walked among us. His love was expressed in concrete, tangible ways extending beyond words. He carried the cross bearing its shame for our sake. He got dirtied and bloodied fully immersing himself in our world, our dilemmas, but emerging victorious on the other end for our redemption. We are meant to engage one another with our lives. It means we sometimes bump into each other, rub each other the wrong way or need to sit down to explain ourselves. It requires time, thoughtfulness, and openness to possibilities abounding when people share lives. Make no mistake; the world will keep producing gadgets and technology meant to make our lives more comfortable and convenient. But beware – it might turn all of us into little islands unto ourselves. Let’s not go there.

Children jump and dance while participating in Zumbatomic at the Midway Park Community Center , at the housing community aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Zumbatomic gave the children an opportunity to have fun while working out and learning about other cultures.

Children dance to health in new Zumbatomic class LANCE CPL. JACKELINE M. PEREZ RIVERA Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Midway Park community center is offering an alternate way for kids to work out with a high energy Zumbatomic class for children between the ages of 6 and 12. Zumbatomic is a children’s version of Zumba, a workout combining soul with exercise through a fusion of dance and athletics, breaking the monotony of jumping jacks and running laps. The Zumbatomic classes are held Wednesdays at 5 p.m. and are taught by Ryoko Burns, along with other Semper Fit physical trainers. Burns, who is affectionately known as Ms Riyo by her students, is a force of positivity. She pours her energy into teaching students about many aspects of Zumbatomic, including social skills, self-esteem and cultural awareness. “Zumba is very popular,” said Burns. “It’s a Latin dance exercise, but it’s not just about dancing. It helps children have more confidence, and it will teach them about respecting one another.” Burns creates a positive environment for the children, where all body types and athletic levels can have fun and work out. Although there are scheduled parent performances, parents are not present during the typical class, which Victoria Braggiotti, the recreation specialist at the Midway Park Community Center said draws many children

out of their shells. “The kids don’t feel self-conscious, they get to get loose and let go of everything for a while,” said Braggiotti. She was originally concerned the children would clam up during the class, but even the shyest students danced along and laughed throughout the class. Burns teaches the class at the skill level of the students, going over each step and making simple combinations to keep the children involved. “It’s a fantastic, wellrounded program keeping children engaged,” said Lynn Ramirez, the supervisory recreation specialist of Group Exercise with Semper Fit. “It gives us a chance to reach a population of children who we otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach.” Children also learn about the cultures that produced the music and the dances. Burns discusses Cumbia, music from Columbia’s Caribbean coast, and will discuss all manner of different cultures with the children as she introduces them to the dances from India and Hawaii to other faraway lands. “I want to teach them the moves,” said Burns. “But, I also want to teach them the culture.” Burns is a former school teacher who worked in child development centers and with the military community for years. She is teaching adult fitness classes with Semper Fit but missed her time working with young children.

“I love teaching adults, but I really missed working with little kids and this class is giving me the opportunity,” said Burns. She has been looking forward to bringing the community a fitness program for some time. After some requests from her adult students she decided to bring the idea to Braggitotti, and it took off from there. “I was very excited when (Burns) came up to talk to me about it,” said Braggiotti. “We have fitness classes for adults and while we have ballet and karate classes for this age group we don’t have anything exercise oriented. They are too young to use the gym, so it’s nice to have a fitness class just for them.” Despite the program’s youth, it drew in a small crowd from word of mouth alone, parents where excited to have a place that focused on the kid’s age group. “I think this is great,” said Michelle Nunez, the parent of a child in the class. “It’s giving her an early start with working out.” Michelle and her husband Staff Sgt. Jorge Nunez, agreed there should more programs like this spread throughout the MCB Camp Lejeune community and hoped parents take advantage of this opportunity. While the program gives children an early start to working out it leaves them with a positive outlook on the experience. Burns shares her passion for fitness and provides them with something out of the ordinary

to keep them healthy. “We don’t want to hammer them over the head with fitness,” said Braggiotti. “They don’t need to worry about it right now, but later in life, if fitness is something they’ve grown to love, they’ll think about it and go back to it.” For more information, call 451-1807.

Class president, Ashley Teague, receives help during a fashion emergency from classmate, Nicholous Johnson, before the Lejeune High School graduation ceremony at the Base Theater aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Friday.

Other things may change us, but we begin and end with family. Bailey Wagenbrenner, senior class treasurer

GRADS FROM 1D about them, but they’re all the same. The jokesters, the serious ones, the quiet ones – we have everything.� Linda Taffi, senior class sponsor, pointed out what, in her opinion, distinguished the class from others who came before them. “They’re all such individuals,� she said. “They know when to follow their own paths and when to come together. They value the family atmosphere, and they’re close.� Though their numbers may not have overwhelmed, the graduates’ support for each other overflowed, as they gave their undivided attention to their classmates who spoke during the ceremony. Valedictorian Catalina Cotis remarked on the intimacy the small class shared and the close friendships formed because of it. “Despite where our paths take us, we’ll always have one thing in common – Lejeune,� she acknowleged. “We’re Devil Pups, and we know it’s something to be proud of. Once we walk across this stage, the carefully sheltered life we’ve known will be over. It’s our turn to take charge of where we will go.� The students’ nerves grew under the watchful eyes of successful leaders like Brig.Gen. Thomas

A. Gorry, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East – MCB Camp Lejeune, and retired Gen. Carl E. Mundy, Jr., 30th Commandant of the Marine Corps, as guest speaker Marilee Fitzgerald, director for Department of Defense Education Activity, stepped up to the podium. “My speech is standing between you and your diploma,� she joked. “Take a deep breath and savor this moment. Each and every one of you will go into the world today as an ambassador.� Fitzgerald congratulated the students and encouraged them to remember their times at LHS. “These memories matter,� she explained. “They will help you create your future. You can’t hope to have success if you don’t know who you are.� She finished by offering sound advice to the graduates. “Find the passion that stirs your soul, go catch your dreams and don’t embarrass your mother,� she said. Each year, the ceremony is dedicated to a person or group the graduating class feels supported them during their educational adventure. Staying true to their reputation of being a tight-knit bunch, Bailey Wagenbrenner, class trea-

LIBRARY FROM 3D Blue Star Families, one of the sponsors of the affair, gave lucky participants prizes including free books, gift cards, book lights and the grand prize, a Nook reading tablet. They also donated several books to the library. A far cry from last year’s “A Midsummer Knight’s Read,� this summer’s food-focused subject is relatable to all age groups and every taste palette. It’s sure to stir up some tasty treats and memorable moments. “The theme has generated a lot of interest,� Guitar admitted. “We’re very excited because it gives us an opportunity to give kids, teens and adults encouragement to read and also teach them how to eat healthy. We’ve been working on this all year.� The summer reading program, launched by the Department of Defense, is growing steadily since its inception three years ago. Last year, more than 11 million reading minutes were logged by children, teens and adults from 250 military bases worldwide. Families aboard MCB Camp Lejeune made a significant contribution to last year’s logged minutes and because of the rising numbers of participants, will most likely set a new reading record for the library’s program. “One of the parents told me this is so phenomenal they plan their vacations around the summer reading program,�

surer, announced the Class of 2012 would dedicate the evening to their parents and families. “Other things may change us, but we begin and end with family,� she proclaimed. “Thank you for being with us on this journey for the last 13 years. Thank you for having confidence in us. You set a goal for us so many years ago. This accomplishment is for you.� Each student came down from the stage and presented many tearful parents with roses. Parents absent from the proceedings due to deployments were also able to enjoy the event through the live streaming telecast. Finally, the leaders took their place, began presenting diplomas and crowning each new graduate as alumni. Some students responded with tears, some with smiles and some with a dance of joy, but they did it together, cheering as each name was read and embracing as friends. Salutatorian Joshua Davis, whose senior year was the only one spent at LHS, admitted to his classmates no one could know what the next day would bring. “The only option we have is to keep going and forge our own path,� he challenged. “The world better get ready. Here comes the Class of 2012.�

reported Nancy Rabgrabowski, a volunteer. “Isn’t it awesome?� According to Guitar, the program is based on minutes, not amount of books, read so participants have the options of magazines, comic books or even audio books to choose from. No matter the format, the goal is to keep kids, and their older counterparts, brains stimulated during the season that begs for laziness. “Statistics prove kids who continue reading during the summer retain more (information) when they return to school,� Guitar noted. Getting caught up in a good book promotes mental health for every age, race and gender. Studies show reading helps train the brain, relieves stress, increases concentration and also helps avoid the risk of brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. “We encourage everyone to register online, at the library or any event they attend,� said Guitar. “We’ve scheduled events all summer.� Coming up is a Medieval presentation of food and craft for children, an “Inside the Book� costume party for teens and a cooking class for adults.
