Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and city officials lay wreaths at the base of the Beirut Memorial wall in honor of lost troops during the 25th annual Beirut Memorial Observance Ceremony, held at the Beirut Memorial at the Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville, N.C., Sunday. CPL. MIRANDA BLACKBURN Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

In the early morning hours of Oct. 23, 1983, an explosive fireball pulverized a four-story Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 241 service members, most of whom were stationed out of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The attack was the deadliest single day in Marine Corps history since Iwo Jima. A quarter-century and several wars have passed, but the memory of the Beirut attacks remains fresh in the hearts of the community. In commemoration of the Marines, sailors and soldiers who lost their lives, the 25th annual Beirut Memorial Observance Ceremony was held at the Beirut Memorial at the Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville, N.C., Sunday. The memorial ceremony illustrates the

sacrifice service members made for freedom and also educates a young audience on a significant event in our history. In 1986, the first Beirut Memorial ceremony was held, beginning the city and the base’s oath to “never forget.” This anniversary draws veterans and family members to Jacksonville from across the country to remember the sacrifice those service members made in the name of freedom. During the memorial service, presided over by city and MCB Camp Lejeune officials, Beirut Memorial Advisory Board member Ronald Bower reminded the audience of how the community had taken action following the tragedy. Raising more than $270,000, the community and City of Jacksonville Beautification and Appearance Commission first planted a row of Bradford Pear trees along Freedom

Way in honor of the fallen and then built a granite wall with their names and the motto “They Came in Peace.” “The memorial that was erected entirely by private funds continues to stand as a memorial by the city of Jacksonville to the troops whose names are carved in stone,” Bower said.

Marines drop rounds in Djiboutian desert CPL. DWIGHT A. HENDERSON 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit

Marines with Company E, Battalion Landing Team, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, conducted a 60 mm mortar shoot while training ashore near Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, recently. The Marines fired the M-224 60 mm mortar system conventionally, using a tripod and forward observer, and hand-help, using the motorman’s own ability to judge range and aim, to better hone their skills while forward deployed. “It’s always important to actually do our job with live rounds,” said Cpl.

mortarman section leader with Company E. “Being on ship, we can’t use live rounds and deal with the safety complications. So it’s always good to get out there so we’re prepared if anything should happen in our area of operations.” Conventional, coordinated fires training refers to firing the motor system from its tripod at targets designated by a forward observer.

MARADMIN changes guidelines for tuition assistance eligibility, funding, restrictions CPL. DAMANY S. COLEMAN

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune


The Marine Corps Administrative message 616/11 – which covers Marine Corps tuition assistance eligibility, funding provision and restrictions – was issued recently and has made a few changes that current and potential students should be aware of. The changes covered in the MARADMIN, which affect all Marines with different education stipulations, have taken effect Oct. 1. According to the MARADMIN, “This new approach to TA recognizes the education funding options that are intended to support a broader continuum of learning or achievement of educational degrees or certification that may be necessary for those Marines transitioning out of the Marine Corps after successful service.” This includes a ceiling of $175 per semester hour for undergraduate courses, $225 per semester hour for graduate courses and $3,500 per fiscal year. However, Marine Corps TA analysis con-

firmed that most Marines who use TA only take four or five semester hours per year. “Therefore, Marines are restricted to five semester hours per year for TA reimbursement, or $875 per fiscal year,” according to the MARADMIN. Other fees, such as lab, technology and distance learning are not to exceed $30 combined. Also, TA cannot be used for application and registration fees, credit examinations and nonrefundable student fees, such as credit matriculation or graduation. Both officers and enlisted personnel new to a duty station must spend at least a year there before TA can be authorized. They also must have passed their last physical fitness test or combat fitness test and must be recommended for promotion or advancement, if applicable. Marines who have undergone non-judicial punishment or court-martial within the past 12 months cannot be authorized TA. Finally, when Marines meet all other requirements for TA, they must have already completed the Marine Corps Institute courses on Lead-

ership, course ID 8112A, or personal financial management, course ID 3420F. According to additional TA information gathered by Maj. Shawn Haney, public affairs officer with Manpower and Reserve Affairs, the $875 per FY for each Marine applies to undergraduate courses only. “The graduate course maximum amount per FY for each Marine is $1,125, based on the rationale that graduate courses are more expensive than undergraduate course and the Marine Corps intends to maintain funding for both capabilities in FY12,” said Haney. Another reason for the TA changes is due to the fact that the budget for each FY has dropped more than $37 million since FY08, with FY11’s budget being only $28 million, said Haney. “On average, approximately 15 percent of all active-duty Marines participate in the TA program annually,” said Haney. “With the high operational tempo, the priority for all Marines – both officers and enlisted – is on learning their Marine Corps profession.

“Everything I enjoy doing is already here.”

Halloween safety message Halloween trick-or-treating within Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune housing areas will be observed Monday from 5 to 9 p.m. To make the evening as safe and enjoyable as possible, the following are trick-or-treating safety tips: Have each child carry or wear something reflective or lighted. A flashlight, flashing or reflective attire and flashing or light-up shoes are all good examples. Adults should plan a route in advance and check it during daylight hours for obstacles such as areas under construction, or other obstacles that could potentially trip and injure

trick-or-treaters. When picking a trick-or-treat costume, goody bag or container, think “practical” over “cute.” Avoid costumes that drag on the ground to prevent tripping and be sure masks does not limit children’s visibility and do not restrict free breathing. Be sure children remain hydrated and don’t get overheated. Trick-or-treaters should walk, not run, and should never cut across lawns or driveways. Obstacles could exist that aren’t readily visible in the evening. Only carry flexible props such as knives, swords or ninja items that will not cause injury if a child accidental-

ly falls. No play prop should resemble the real item. Consider leaving play weapons at home. Trick-or-treating should be a fun and positive experience for everyone. Only trick-or-treat at houses that have a standing or porch light on. Residents who do not wish to participate in trick-or-treating should leave their standing lights off as a sign. All candy and treats should be inspected by an adult prior to consuming. Please have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!

10th Marines participate in Rolling Thunder CPL. ED GALO 2nd Marine Division


he Marines of 10th Marine Regiment, 2nd M a r i n e Division, took part in a training evolution called Rolling Thunder aboard Army Base Fort Bragg, N.C., which began Oct. 7 and will continue for about three weeks. The training exercise gives the Marines the ability to shoot artillery rounds off at a battery level, then battalion level and finally at a regimental level. Toward the end of the exercise, the maneuvers get more complicated as all of the battalions within the regiment have to be able to communicate with one another in order to maneuver and shoot rounds downrange. “We’ve shot a lot since we’ve got here and have been moving constantly,” said Sgt. Robert Rogers, section chief, Battery A, 2nd Bn., 10th Marines, 2nd Marine Division. “I think the most effective part of the training is the moving.” One of the other advantages of traveling to Fort Bragg is the size difference. Since Fort Bragg is bigger, the Marines have more space to shoot and bigger impact areas to shoot at. “Coming out here gives the Marines some good experience,” continued Rogers. “We can do a lot more here than we can aboard (Marine Corps Base Camp) Lejeune. We can shoot different kinds of missions and we can have a whole regiment out here at once.” In order to be able to shoot the rounds, it takes a lot, logistically, for the batteries, battalions and regiment to be able to operate. It takes more than just having Marines with the military occupational specialty of 0811, field artil-

Dan Rosenberg, operations officer, CLB-2, 2nd MLG. “We minimize - logisti-

cally - the strain on 10th Marines.” The Marines with CLB-2 helped with everything from purifying between 150,000 to 200,000 gallons of potable water for showers and drinking to refueling all the vehicles used to transport the Marines and their equipment to and around Fort Bragg. “Not having CLB-2 would impact our training

too much,” said Maj. Matthew Maz, commanding officer, Headquarters Battery, 10th Marines Regiment. “We would have spent too much time trying to coordinate getting our food and trying to resupply every battery in the regiment. We wouldn’t have been able to maintain our current operational tempo. You’ve got to train like you fight.”

The silence of the tree line is shattered as a Marine yells, “ETA one minute!” The tree line bustles as the Marines prepare to embark on an inbound helicopter. Within moments the chopper tears over the horizon, landing in the secured landing zone where Marines await to evacuate a casualty. This was the scene as Marines with Company F, Anti-Terrorism Battalion, attached to 2nd Marine Division, conducted a day of helicopter operations aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Oct. 20. The training consisted of landing zone insertion, extraction and casualty evacuation drills supported by a CH-53E Super Stallion with the Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366, stationed aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. “Doing these drills and rehearsals is great training,” said Sgt. Vanderbilt Gaditano, squad leader, fourth squad, fourth platoon, Co. F. “It’s really about improving our communication and having good tactics, techniques and procedures set out for us before we have to deal with these kinds of situations in a combat environment.” The Marines received classes on the capabilities of the many helicopters used by the Marine Corps prior to conducting the training. “It’s important to know the capabilities of each platform and what they can carry so when air arrives, we know exactly how many people can get on,” said Staff Sgt. David Tellefsen, platoon sergeant, fourth platoon, Co. F. “The Marines also have to know how to quickly secure a landing zone for both helo insertions and extractions because time is always a factor when dealing with air.” Over the course of the training each platoon performed two casu-

• Civilians • Military • Retirees We Have Competetive Rates!

Prior & Current Customers Will Receive an Extra 20% Off Their Tax Preparation

The cost of living allowance for retirees will increase 3.6 percent, effective Dec. 1. The money will first appear Jan. 1, 2012. This is the first COLA raise in two years. This retiree COLA is actually higher than the 1.6 percent for active duty. The difference results from the fact that retired pay is adjusted to keep pace with consumer price index, while military basic pay rises to keep pace with private sector wages. The reason there has not been a COLA raise for the last two years was that the weak economy kept the CPI flat. This changed slightly this year. The CPI went up and so did COLA. Although the job market remains in a weak condition and home values are still low, the cost of goods and services has been rising. The actual CPI is measured now at 3.9 percent higher than it was last year at this time. This is mainly because of a rise in gasoline, energy, and food cost, which we all have felt. The COLA is 3.6 percent and not 3.9 percent, because it is calculated by comparing consumer prices for three months – July, August and September – to cost for the same months in the previous year. The same percentage increase applies to Social Security, federal civilian retired pay and other government entitlements, which are also linked to the CPI. Something that will interest retirees is the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction is empowered to come up with a $1.2 trillion savings over the next 10 years. Part of their initiatives involves is reviewing how COLA is calculated that would result in annual increases that are as much as 0.5 percent smaller than the current calculation, therefore lower COLA. They would do this by ignoring some of the increases in some goods and services by saying people can use a less expensive goods or services instead. This means less COLA for you. I realize this is confusing to most people, but please stay current on all benefits, policies and voice your concern. Silence is often considered consent. If there are any questions, please contact the retired activity officer at 451-0287, Monday through Friday.

For over 100 years, Walgreens has proudly served the pharmacy needs of America’s active and retired military personnel and their families.

Today, Walgreens is honored to provide pharmacy services as part of the Department of Defense TRICARE pharmacy program. While we value the partnership we have built over the years with the TRICARE pharmacy program, our existing relationship with the company that manages the program, Express Scripts, is set to expire at the end of the year and is likely not to be renewed due to the demands of Express Scripts. Walgreens has made many significant offers to Express Scripts in an effort to retain the ability to serve all active and retired military personnel and their families. We have done all we can to avoid having TRICARE beneficiaries and program leaders caught in the middle. Recently, we also took the unprecedented step of offering Express Scripts an ironclad guarantee that Walgreens prices would match or beat the average costs of all other retail pharmacies per adjusted prescription in the TRICARE network. We have gone the extra mile. Walgreens most recent offer would guarantee that no additional costs would be incurred by Express Scripts or the TRICARE pharmacy program as a result of keeping Walgreens in its pharmacy network. Despite these extraordinary offers, Express Scripts has consistently refused all of our efforts to negotiate a separate agreement that would keep Walgreens in the TRICARE network of pharmacies after December 31, 2011. Our proposals for TRICARE beneficiaries remain on the table. Express Scripts, however, continues to refuse our overtures to avoid disruptions to our fighting men and women, their families, and those who have served in the past. Please go to and add your voice to the tens of thousands who are letting Express Scripts know that America’s active duty and retired military personnel and military families should be able to choose Walgreens. Walgreens is committed to serving those who have worn the uniform and their loved ones as we have done for over a century. We hope to be able to continue that tradition of service. Sincerely, Greg Wasson Walgreens President & CEO

Cannons help gain territory in Operation Eastern Storm CPL. CLAYTON VONDERAHE Regimental Combat Team 8

Howitzers recently fired over the mountains of Kajaki, striking targets they couldn’t even see. Marines with Battery E, 2nd Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, inserted themselves into an abandoned compound under the cover of night to establish Observation Post New York. The cannons rang out in support of the insertion, eliminating enemies holding positions against the Marines. The battery is currently supporting Operation Tofan Sharq (Eastern Storm), a major offensive to root out the Taliban-led insurgency in the Upper Sangin Valley region of Kajaki. The unit is working to push insurgents out of the area, ultimately increasing their ability to connect with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, moving north from Sangin, and rid the “Green Zone”

along the Helmand River of insurgents. “To put it into perspective, Kajaki is kind of split into two parts,” explained 1st Lt. Daniel Ealy, an artillery officer with the unit. “Kajaki north is called Olya, and Kajaki south is Sofla. All the insurgents are in Sofla. We went down to where the border of Oyla and Sofla are, and we set in there. We essentially blocked them off from (the north).” The Marines are blocking off the insurgent presence along Route 611, which is a north-south route from Sangin along the Helmand River, where the Marines, Afghan National Army and Afghan Uniformed Police maintain a commanding presence. In this area, Route 611 is a winding, dirt road, pock-marked with craters where improvised explosive devices have detonated. It is the width of a standard two-lane street, but the only place safe to walk along the road is a narrow path of no more than two feet

wide, mainly identifiable by the unmistakable path created by the heavy foot traffic moving unwaveringly down the slim path. This is a stark contrast to the Route 611 south of the Sangin Bazaar, where it is paved and includes distinctly marked lanes and even the occasional billboard. The few civilians traveling Route 611 tend to stick to the poorly outlined path, aware of the hazards in a misplaced footstep. Civilians still occasionally travel the path, but the area is nearly completely deserted of its residents. “The insurgents had forced everybody out of the area a long time ago,” said Ealy. “The only thing (citizens) were allowed to do was come up during the daytime and farm, but not stay there at night. That’s one of the things we’re trying to do – allow them to come back into their areas, their residences. We’re doing this so they can try to start a normal life again on their properties.”

System strikes, two requests for fire support from the howitzer cannons, and an air strike. The operation has been successful, thus far, for the battery. “Everything (is going) smoothly,” said Cpl. Sean Fullaway, the lead IED sweeper with the battery. “Just by looking at it, you can tell this is a strategic location to have, and if it’s strategic to us, it is strategic for the (insurgents) to have, as well.” The new OP was attacked for two consecutive days after the initial insertion of forces. The Marines and ANA soldiers worked in shifts performing a constant cycle of patrols throughout the area and guarding the base from potential attacks. Suppressing the insurgent presence in the area provides the Marines and soldiers with the ability to clear the road of threats and clear a path from the Kajaki District Center to Forward Operating Base Zeebrugge. This allows the Marines to work with the area’s district governor to make it safe for the local population to re-

turn to the Kajaki area. “Our intentions are for the population’s good,” said Fullaway. “We are trying to return their land that they rightfully own back to them and take the (insurgents) out of the area. One of the greatest moments for me was going through Sharp’s Alley.” Sharp’s Alley is a stretch of heavily vegetated land that has been used to store weapons and contraband inside abandoned compounds for use against the Marines. The stretch of land was a hot spot for insurgent activity to any Marine presence before the insertion. The Marines are currently holding the area and blocking it from further insurgent activity while 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, clears Route 611 so it can, in time, become a safe road for travel.

Coalition forces with Task Force Leatherneck located in Helmand province have kicked off Operation Tofan Sharq (Eastern Storm), a major offensive operation to root out the Taliban-led insurgency in the Upper Sangin Valley region of Kajaki. After five days of pushing north from Sangin along Route 611, coalition and Afghan National Security Forces have pushed the insurgency out of Kajaki and secured the road leading to the once-terrorized village. “We are assisting the Afghan National Army’s 215th Corps to secure the main road between Sangin and Kajaki,” stated Brig. Gen. Lewis Craparotta, commanding general, Task Force Leatherneck. “Senior Taliban commanders have been killed or forced into the northern portion of Helmand province. The conditions are being set to encourage families to move back to Kajaki, into their homes in order to allow life to get back to normal. We are giving the people an opportunity to live in peace. Something they have not had in years.” The Taliban was well-anchored in the area surrounding the Kajaki Dam, creating a significant security threat for local residents and any contractors willing to work in the area.

Recent opposition by local tribal leaders had developed toward insurgent activities in the area. This dissension is believed to be from the heavy taxation the Taliban had imposed on local Afghans who used the resources provided by the dam. The Kajaki Dam is the main power source for Sangin and most of the Upper Sangin Valley. Originally constructed in 1953 as a result of an irrigation project by the United States Agency for International Development, recent reconstruction efforts have been slow and difficult. Security will enable repairs to existing power grids as well as improvements to the irrigation system. “We have an opportunity to improve the irrigation system for the farmers with limited investment,” said Craparotta. “Security and overall quality of life will change in the coming months.” Task Force Leatherneck made many efforts to warn area insurgents through leaflet drops and radio messaging. These communication methods were used to give insurgents a chance to reintegrate with the government of Afghanistan. “The insurgents knew we were coming but they didn’t (know) when or how,“ said Craparotta. “The Marines in the field, fighting side-by-side with our Afghan partners overwhelmed the enemy. What is left of the insurgent force has probably withdrawn to the north.”

Detection team sharpens skills, protects Marines from IED threat LANCE CPL. ALFRED V. LOPEZ Regimental Combat Team 5


a i n taining a Mar i n e ’s warfighting skills requires rigorous practice and steadfast dedication. Training doesn’t stop, not even in a combat zone. Putting in the hours of training required to detect improvised explosive device threats are critical for both Lance Cpl. Adam Fox, an infantryman and dog handler with Company C, 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment and Cpl. Jett, an IED detection dog. The cost for a missed scent or misinterpreted command is high in their line of work. “We spend up to 35 hours on drills and exercises every week,” said Fox. “It keeps his (smell) and detection skills up to date and also my command techniques.” Before their partnership began in June, Jett, a chocolate Labrador retriever, had already received extensive training at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejuene, said Fox. Jett can be commanded verbally, with a whistle or with hand-and-arm signals. His talents are best utilized by pushing far out in front of Marines patrolling on foot, setting up cordons around vehicles and searching the interior and exterior of buildings.

“Both of us need to work hard,” said Fox. “Otherwise, he won’t be able to keep up during patrols or he won’t listen to my commands.” The pair begins each day with a series of drills, designed to keep Jett healthy and his mind fresh. Their morning drills usually involve a form of fetch to get Jett’s blood pumping for work. Throughout the day, they find time to work on odor drills, keeping his nose alert to the various odors of components used to make IEDs. Fox digs a hole and buries a sample of homemade explosive materials, often masking the odor with various items to throw Jett off the scent. “If we don’t keep up with these drills, he will lose his skills and obedience and become just like a normal pet,” said Fox.

Albert Camacho, a section chief with Battery C, 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, takes a break next to his M-777 howitzer. Camacho said it was his goal as a young artilleryman to become a chief, and now his favorite part is being able to train his junior Marines.

Artillery section chiefs always on call CPL. JEFF DREW

2nd Marine Division

When the sound of gunfire pierces the early morning mist, he knows intuitively he will be needed. When Marines are pinned down under fire, they know they can call on him. He acts as the artillery muscle supporting the Marines and sailors throughout his battle space. He is an artillery section chief, and he is always on call. Infantry Marines count on the supporting fires of an artillery battery when they are suppressed by the enemy, and every second counts when lives are on the line. The team of Marines manning the gun must remain composed and work without hesitation in order to send rounds downrange with deadly precision. When it comes to being in charge of an M-777 howitzer, there is no room for error. A section chief must be aware of all actions the mem-

bers of his gun crew make; he must know how they will react in any situation. He knows this because he has perfected each job on the gun himself. “Basic artillery school in Fort Sill, Okla., is where you learn the basics of becoming an artilleryman,” said Sgt. Albert Camacho, a artillery section chief with Battery C, 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment. “After that, most of the experience comes in time. You have to become a gunner, and you have to understand the (weapon) sights. Knowing each job and billet is important because when something isn’t going right, you have to know how to fix it.” An artillery section chief is like a quarterback, said Staff Sgt. Dawud Hakim, a platoon sergeant with the company and former section chief. He explained a section chief must be able to stand back and observe everything that is happening and what everyone is doing;

he makes sure everything runs smoothly; he is the base for all the moving parts on the gun. It takes an average of two years for an artilleryman to attain the job of section chief, but it all depends on the individual, Hakim explained. It depends on how fast he can learn and how much he is willing to put into his work. “Not everyone can be a section chief. Not everyone has the desire to be a section chief,” said Hakim. “The chief knows everything that is involved with his responsibilities, and it is the passion of, ‘I’m getting ready to send this round downrange,’ that drives him. It can be training for live fire, but he knows every round that’s going into the tube, and he takes pride in it.” When a noncommissioned officer becomes a section chief, he is always on call. It is one of the most important aspects of the job. At any time the call for support may come from in-

fantry Marines who are in the fight, and a section chief needs to be able to guide his artillery Marines to accurately send rounds downrange to help them out. Whether he is eating food, taking a shower, or at the gym, the section chief must drop everything in order to facilitate the call for fire support. Junior artillerymen work diligently to earn the coveted position when an opening becomes available, despite the dedication required and the great responsibility placed on a section chief. “It’s a goal to be a section chief because it’s a leadership billet, and I see it as a big step in your career as an artilleryman,” said Camacho. “It helps you to build a lot of experience, which you need to be able to train your Marines. That’s what made me want to be a section chief, because I can teach, and being able to teach my young Marines how to become a section chief is what I’ve always wanted to do.”

A chief is directly responsible for more than $2 million worth of equipment and must ensure it is maintained properly. He must verify all incoming fire mission data used to confirm target information and guarantee the correct ammunition is being loaded into the weapon. Camacho has proven himself as a section chief, and his leadership can see his passion for the job with every round his crew sends downrange. “He’s awesome. He’s very precise, detailed, and he is always big on teaching his Marines the right way to do things,” said Hakim. “He’s a good chief in my book.” “The feeling you get when shooting rounds downrange, (whether) in combat or not, doing everything you can to make sure the rounds land safely, or providing indirect fire support for infantry units is a great feeling, and you know you accomplished that mission,” said Camacho.


Marines continue Operation Eastern Storm 1ST LT. TIMOTHY IRISH

Regimental Combat Team 8

Operation Eastern Storm continues to secure Route 611 from Sangin’s District Center to the Kajaki Dam. Marines from Regimental Combat Team 8 and Afghan National Security Forces with the 2nd Brigade, 215th Corps, Afghan National Army are participating in this operation. Securing this route opens a vital corridor for local citizens, Afghan government officials and merchants to transit rapidly between several districts, giving residents a freedom of movement they haven’t experienced in more than a decade. “The people of the Upper Sangin Valley and Kajaki District have asked us to help them rid their homes of the insurgency,” said Col. Eric M. Smith, commanding officer of RCT-8. “The area immediately surrounding the dam will no longer be just a bubble of security. Opening Route 611 allows the people to visit the markets in Sangin and Gereshk and travel to the provincial capitol of Lashkar Gah. They are as much our allies in this operation as is the Afghan soldier fighting alongside the Marine riflemen.” Increased security gains in the district of Sangin and Helmand province in the past two years have allowed coalition and Afghan National Security Forces to shift their attention north. “What you have is two security bubbles being connected and consolidated. The bubble around the Kajaki Dam is being connected to the bubble around Sangin’s District Center,” said Smith. “The insurgent has nowhere to go but out.” Many local citizens have left the area, and those remaining suffered from Taliban murder and intimidation campaigns. The lack of ANSF or coalition forces in the past has allowed parts of the area to become an insurgent safe-haven. The introduction of Marines and Afghan soldiers has been a welcome sign. “Overall, the mood appears to be one of gratitude and relief – gratitude that someone is there to help them get back to their lives because insurgents have been there for so long,” commented Maj. William Sablan, the operations officer for RCT-8. “Some locals have approached the Marines and asked them if they

can get back to farming, praying at the local mosque and shopping in the bazaar. “Really it is just relief that they can get back to normal everyday life.” The operation is still ongoing, yet it signifies an end to the Taliban’s ability to operate freely in Helmand province. Coalition and ANSF forces have met with little enemy resistance, as engagements with insurgents have been limited to the discovery of improvised explosive devices and small-arms firefights. “The overwhelming force of Afghan soldiers, police and Marines continues to push the insurgency out of the region,” said Brig. Gen. Lewis Craparotta, commander, Task Force Leatherneck. Editor’s Note: Regimental Combat Team 8 is currently assigned to 2nd Marine Division (Forward), Task Force Leatherneck. Task Force Leatherneck serves as the ground combat element of Regional Command (Southwest) and works in partnership with the Afghan National Security Forces and Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations. The unit is dedicated to securing the Afghan people, defeating insurgent forces, and enabling ANSF assumption of security responsibilities within its area of operations in order to support the expansion of stability, development and legitimate governance.

2nd MLG (Fwd) hosts Corporal’s Course SGT. JUSTIN SHEMANSKI 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward)

“Corporals! When I’m talking, you are not. Are we clear?” The chatter among a group of young corporals ceased as Staff Sgt. Nicholas Underwood began demonstrating the proper execution of crunch exercises. As the chief instructor for the 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) Corporal’s Course aboard Camp Leatherneck, Underwood, along with a handful of sergeant instructors, led approximately 30 young noncommissioned officers through their initial physical fitness test, Oct. 18. This lesson in leading

Marines was just the first of many in the course that began Oct. 17 and will run through Nov. 9. As leaders themselves, these corporals will learn the traits of a successful NCO and how to properly apply them to developing subordinates and supporting their superiors. These principles are crucial to mission accomplishment in any forum, even when forward deployed. “Look at a (Marine AirGround Task Force) — look how it fights,” said 1st Sgt. Tabron Shorts, Corporal’s Course director. “They work as a team and that is what we are going to teach these NCOs,” he explained. “For most of them, this is the first opportunity

they have had to learn and build together as peers. “We are giving them attributes that will magnify their abilities on the battlefield.” Over the course of the next few weeks, Shorts and his instructor staff will cover lessons in leadership basics, tactics and physical fitness, to name a few. Upon graduation, they will have the tools they need to manage and direct their Marines effectively. “PME itself is extremely important, but especially when talking about young leaders,” said Shorts, as he explained the merits of professional military education in Afghanistan. “This is the basis of what they will learn through the ranks to sergeant major.”

DJIBOUTI FROM 1A skill as a Marine, without the assistance of a tripod, steadies and aims the tube with one hand and pulls the mortar-system’s trigger with the other. While hand-held firing does not have the same range and accuracy, it is effective in expedient situations such as convoys. “I think the hand-held mortar training went really well,” said Cpl. Seth J. Desplinter, a mortar section squad leader with Company E. “It’s the one aspect of being a mortarman where it’s just you and the mortar system. It’s important to practice it to refresh your fundamentals, just like rifle marksmanship.” The Marines practiced hand-held firing until the evening, when they returned the mortar tubes to their tripods and began conventional, coordinated night firing. Night firing is a test for both mortarmen and forward observers, who must coordinate illumination and highexplosive rounds simultaneously. When coordinated correctly, the rounds illuminate the area just before the highexplosive rounds find their targets. “Night fire is really important,” said Dias. “If we have a post somewhere they want to know that their illumination rounds will be accurate.” Dias went on to say the mortar training, overall, went very well. He added that their fires were accurate from the time the training started.

TUITION FROM 1A and peers are dedicated to providing every Marine training, experience and opportunities they need to develop within their military occupational specialty first and foremost.” Haney said troops need to understand that Marine Corps leadership remains committed to providing opportunities and financial assistance benefits to Marines as they pursue their educational goals. “With the introduction of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, funding options available to Marines for their education has increased, allowing greater choices in the academic institutions they can choose to attend,” said Haney. “Implementation of these proposed TA funding cuts and revised eligibility policies in FY12 are intended to maintain a reduced benefit for the majority of eligible Marines.” Haney added that due to budgetary constraints within the Marine Corps, the intent of the TA program has shifted from providing funding for degree attainment to primarily providing first term Marines the opportunity to start their pursuit of their higher educational goals. “We have carefully reviewed the utilization data for the TA program and found that 87 percent of Marine TA users only took five semester hours or less during FY10,” said Haney. “Therefore, the additional semester hour restriction in the new policy should have a minimum impact on the majority of Marines.” Additional funding options through the Post 9/11 GI Bill and Montgomery GI Bill offer additional funding opportunities to offset the cost of higher education expenses for Marines. Due to an overlap between the end of Federal Government Fiscal Year, Sept. 30, and the various start dates for academic institution, Marines who received tuition assistance in August or September 2011 received the amounts specified in the previous policy. For Marines who started classes after Sept. 30, TA was authorized under the recently released revised policy. For more information, MARADMIN 616/11 is available online.

Marines, coalition forces implement tests for Afghan explosive disposal proficiency CPL. DANIEL WULZ

Regional Command Southwest

Throughout Helmand province, Marines and coalition forces have been training Afghan National Security Forces in a variety of skills. One of the most valuable training experiences being taught at Afghan training centers is explosive ordnance disposal, which teaches selected troops how to neutralize explosives, including improvised explosive devices. This training is also known as counterIED training. Many of the Afghan National Security Forces selected for EOD training learn their trade at a school in Mazar-e Sharif in the northern part of the country. However, the demands of the job, including a need for above-average literacy and math skills, have resulted in a steep attrition rate in students at the academy. To help solve this problem, Marines of the 5th Brigade Afghan National Civil Order Police Mentor Team and other coalition forces began conducting screenings for the Afghan EOD schools at the team’s headquarters in Lashkar Gah, recently. “It’s been pretty successful,” said Gunnery Sgt. Kyle Hall, the chief of Regional Command Southwest’s Afghan National Security Forces C-IED development section. “We’re finding quality applicants for the EOD school in

Mazar-e-Sharif.” At the primary EOD training facility in Mazar-e-Sharif, there has been a sharp decline in the attrition rate of students in the EOD courses dropping from 60 percent to 20 percent. In the past, there was no standard aptitude test to screen Afghan EOD students before sending them to the EOD school. Afghan policemen or soldiers who volunteered for the course could participate, but upon arrival it was discovered that many applicants were not literate or could not perform the tasks needed to succeed, said Royal Navy Chief Petty Officer Robert Hill, operations chief for RC(SW)’s C-IED section. The new screening features a series of tests on mathematics, reading and writing, in addition to a practical application examination of time and distance measurement. “Screening alone has lowered the attrition rate,” said Hall. Following the first-ever screening of applicants from Helmand province, a shura, or Afghan meeting, was conducted aboard Mobile Operating Base Lashkar Gah. Members of the Afghan CIED Development section joined British and American mentors in a meeting with Afghan leaders, including Lt. Col. Sha Mah Raz, the local ANCOP deputy, and Maji Dullah, the ANCOP Spe-

cial Support Kandak deputy, as well as Afghan Uniformed Police leaders. They discussed the future of EOD courses in the country including recruiting, training and screening. “This is like the maiden voyage of projects like this,” said British Army Maj. Mark Dix, the coalition’s Afghan C-IED developer. “The focus of development was on the Afghan army, now it’s on the AUP and ANCOP. Hopefully we can get counter-IED underway and have more success in the reconstruction and development of ANSF.” A large part of the shift in attention comes not only from CIED development, but also from the Marines of the ANCOP Mentor Team in Lashkar Gah. The Marines there don’t just train Afghans and call it a day. They live, sleep and eat alongside their trainees. They witness the dayto-day struggles of the ANCOP and guide troops and leaders alike towards creating a stable police force for the city and people of Afghanistan. “They are out there doing the job every day in addition to talking to commanders and troops finding good applicants for the EOD program,” Hill said. “We owe a lot of the success of the ANCOP here and the screening program to the Marines in the 5th Brigade ANCOP Mentor Team.”

Afghan Police were tested in basic math, reading, writing and time and distance measurement in order determine their suitability for EOD duty and to help lower the attrition rates and ensure the success of future EOD courses held in Afghanistan.


ANA, Marines find bond through soccer STAFF SGT. ANDREW MILLER Regimental Combat Team 5


embers of the Afghan National Army’s 1st Brigade, 215th Corps and Marines with Regimental Combat Team 5 Embedded Training Team went head-to-head during a soccer match here, Oct. 21. The match was one in a series of weekly athletic competitions designed to build camaraderie between the two units. As in many countries, soccer is considered a national pastime in Afghanistan. However, due to a violent insurgency and an oppressive Taliban government before 2001, many Afghans have not been afforded the opportunity to play soccer. Decades of instability have ultimately led to a decline in Afghan participation in the sport at the international level. As Afghan forces take more responsibility for operations in southern Helmand and the security environment steadily improves, there is hope for a re-emergence of this beloved sport. “We’ve been doing this at least once a week to build relations with our counterparts and get to know their culture a little more, to make friends with them basically,” said Sgt. Brandon M. Richards, RCT-5 ETT Motor Transport noncommissioned officer adviser. “They were pretty good. I think it would be good if we could turn this into some sort of tournament eventually.” Prior to the game, the ETT Marines brimmed with confidence as a victory seemed all but guaranteed. It was only a few minutes into the match that they realized this was ANA turf. Even the most experienced soccer players on the Marine side couldn’t prevent an ANA victory on this day. Lance Cpl.

There were not a lot of rules which is good in some ways because it made you run a lot more, but there was not a lot of strategic play either,” he said. If not ruthless, one might even call the play fierce or barbaric. It was apparent that both teams wanted bragging rights

for the following week. With no grass in sight, players dribbled their way through the sand and gravel-covered field. The ANA soldiers were particularly adept at using the unorthodox field to their advantage. Marines playing defense saw their task become more difficult as their Afghan counterparts played balls off the HESCO barriers and a watchtower adjacent to the field.

After the ANA thumped the Marines 3-0, Cruz said that in his personal opinion, some of the soldiers could play at a semi-professional level if given the opportunity and resources. Undaunted by the loss, the ETT Marines plan to step up their game in the coming weeks. “This was my warm up for the season,” Cruz said. “I’ll definitely come to play next time around.”

Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune sponsors fun run for breast cancer awareness

JESSIE HEATH Sports editor


hanks to a smart marketing strategy, the month of October has become inundated with a plethora of pink and breast cancer awareness events, fundraisers and programs. It’s nearly impossible to avoid, regardless of where one lives. Last Friday, Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune made sure nobody could ignore the breast cancer awareness phenomenon. Gathered on the corner of Holcomb Boulevard aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, stood a long line of men, women and children, dressed in pink and waving to cars as they drove past. Complete with boas, tiaras, pins, ribbons and face paint in various shades of pink and fusia, 295 people took their lunch break to run in the Breast Cancer Awareness 5K. Stacy Lamb, NHCL educator and event organizer, did not expect the turnout the event received. She brought up the idea at a base wellness meeting and started planning early in the summer for what she expected to be a small, lunch-time 5K. “Marine Corps Community Services said that they have done small lunch-hour runs before, that they usually don’t have a big turnout, and are just something to do for exercise,” said Lamb. “I figured that’s what this would be.” The run turned out to be much larger than a lunch hour run. Semper Fit sought out Lamb to pledge their support. MCCS donated 24 black and pink watches to give away at the run and Lamb ordered cinch sacks to fill with information on breast cancer awareness.

Never underestimate the power of the underdog

Everybody loves the underdog. Movies thrive on the concept of a seemingly inept guy turning into a hero and winning the girl of his dreams. Books pull readers into a realm of fantasy where the underdog gets everyone’s vote, and every once in a while, a real-life underdog makes headlines and takes the world by storm. Major League Baseball is no stranger to underdogs becoming top dogs. The Pirates, the Orioles and the Rays have all been called surprise teams for their ability to come out of nowhere with a better season than normal. Now, the Detroit Tigers can be added to the list of underdogs who came out on top. Who really expected the Tigers to win the division title and make it into the post-season? I don’t know anybody who expected to see them make it. With new strategies and a new outlook, the Detroit Tigers took everybody by

surprise and upset many predictions. It makes sense that nobody expected the Tigers to go as far as they did. They are not a stacked team with a world-renown coaching staff. They don’t have a history that speaks for itself. Yet, they somehow managed to break from the mold and become a successful team this year. Here’s the funny thing, by the end of the season, nobody would have been surprised to see the Tigers preparing for the World Series. It just goes to show that the underdog should never be overlooked. Yes, it’s easy to look at the best players in the league and say that their teams will have a great season because they are stacked with talented players. It’s easy to think that the best coaches are going to have the most successful teams. After all, we’re taught that great leadership is a key to success. How did the Tigers

pull off such a successful season? The key to rising above the expectations of others isn’t that much of a secret. They worked hard. That’s it. Hard work is how underdogs become top dogs. There is no secret formula to defy expectations. The only thing that is a secret is how much work it takes to come out on top. Nobody can expect to put in the average amount of work and come out at the top of the ladder unless they have natural talent. And yes, some people do have natural talent that allows them to make their hard work look easy. But, for the most part, everyone has to work a little harder to see the outcome they want. The Tigers weren’t immune to hard work this year. You could see it all over their faces at every game. Determination to hit harder, field better, pitch straighter and run faster helped them reach their goals. They may not have reached their ultimate goal of making it to the World Series, but they certainly made a name for themselves this year. What can we learn from the Tigers? It’s another simple answer. Don’t overlook the underdog. He may be the man standing beside you who shrinks quietly into the background when large groups of people are present. He

might be the guy on your left who doesn’t say much, but soaks information up like a sponge. And, just like the Tigers turning heads this year, you never know when all that information might come pouring back out, turning the tables when you least expect it. Instead of ignoring the underdog, maybe its time to challenge them. Instead of picking the same MLB teams to perform well every year, maybe we need a bit of an upset to make us sit up straight in our chairs and squint at the TV screen to make sure we’re seeing correctly. Maybe it’s time to bring back the underdogs. The same principle applies to everyday interactions. It’s time to challenge the underdogs to step up and step out. Don’t stand in the background and keep your head down. You’re not immune to doing something surprising and great. So, why aren’t you doing it? Detroit may not see another succesful year for a while, but they’re a step ahead of every other team that didn’t try to make a name for themselves. Like the Tigers, the underdog who steps out and does something nobody expects, has made a name for himself above all the rest who sit back contentedly and merely wish they could make a meangingful or worthwhile change.

Onslow Offshore

fishing has shown some signs of life. There have been reports of red drum and bluefish showing up here and there, but the water remains murky, making it difficult to catch many fish. There is still hope for the water to clear up though, as a northeast wind and cooler water temperatures make their way toward the N.C. coast. The murky water has kept surf fishers from seeing the usual runs of mullet and flounder. Flounder fishing is still spotty and I would recommend anglers head toward the artificial reefs. Without bait running along the shore, flounder are more likely to be caught offshore than they are to be caught by surf fishers. Some small flounder have also been spotted along the Intracoastal Waterway, but very few are large enough to keep. When it comes to bottom fishing, the sea mullet have taken to sand fleas. Pier bottom fishing has produced some decent catches of red and black drum, caught using pinfish. A few blowfish are also showing up on the ends of piers, but they

are very small and not of much use. Anglers will be pleased to know that the king mackerel bite is showing life, after an unsuccessful spring and summer run. Many king mackerel have showed up around the artificial reefs and near Lookout Shoals. The anchovies and silversides have driven farther out to sea, taking the false albacore with them. Brave anglers can take boats out for a day if they are really intent on catching false albacore, but this angler thinks it’s a better use of time to enjoy the fantastic king mackerel bite. The N.C. Marine Fisheries Committee will convene Nov. 2 through 4 to discuss changes to speckled trout regulations. The meeting will be held at Fort Macon Visitors’ Center. A full agenda and briefing booklet can be found on the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries website. The Ask Dr. Bogus Fishing show can be heard every Monday morning at 7:30 on 107.1 FM and 1240 AM and accessed on the Coastal Daybreak Facebook page.

4B OCTOBER 27, 2011 AWARENESS FROM 1B “When I saw how many people showed up, I knew we had more than we planned,” said Lamb. The event, which was supposed to begin at 11:30 a.m., had to begin a little later than planned due to the sheer volume of people in attendance. To speed up registration, volunteers moved along the line of people waiting, handing out registration sheets and pens. Cinch sacks full of breast cancer awareness information and raffle numbers for the watches disappeared quickly, creating a need for the makeshift raffle numbers written down on scraps of paper. “We posted flyers around the hospital and at different facilities on base,” said Lamb. “We also posted on the NHCL Facebook page and website and MCCS put up something on their

THE GLOBE, CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. public website. We tried to get the word out and it seems like it worked.” The idea to hold a 5K to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention and treatment came about from Lamb’s love for running. An avid runner, Lamb wanted to hold an event that would be open to everyone. A 5K seemed like the perfect option. “I really wanted not just runners, but walkers,” said Lamb. “We got walkers, runners and even strollers and puppies to come out. That’s exactly what I wanted. I wanted to make an event that everyone could enjoy.” Instead of touting the 5K as a race, she simply referred to it as a fun run and walk. Lamb borrowed a clock for the finish line so that people could time themselves if they chose, but purposefully did not focus on the race aspect

of the run. “I really just wanted an event that could increase awareness about the importance of breast cancer self-checks, prevention and treatment, when it is needed,” said Lamb. “I wanted to turn heads with hundreds of people running down Holcomb in pink. That is the type of stuff that raises awareness and reminds people of the importance of self exams, mammograms, prevention and early detection.” Jim Askins, department head of health and wellness at NHCL, recognized the importance of the breast cancer awareness 5K and the signifigance of the large crowd of pink-clad supporters it drew. “Stacy has really worked hard on this and it’s an important topic to talk about,” said Askins. “She’s made a good event, even without

knowing how many people to expect. This is a fantastic cause and I’m really pleased with the turnout we had.” “We had a lot of people, from all different walks of life, turn out to support the cause and promote awareness,” said Lamb. “After the run, a lady who came by the table with her husband shared that she just went through chemotherapy last week for breast cancer. She and her husband walked the entire 5K. She said

she didn’t know if she was going to make it or not, but she was glad she came out and did it.” As the group headed down Holcomb Boulevard, the impact of breast cancer could be seen on the backs of shirts and heard in conversations between walkers. Participants shared stories of the battles of grandmothers, sisters and aunts and paused to take group photos, signifying the importance of the 5K fun run and walk.

“We’re going to do another one next year,” said Lamb. “It worked. It did what we wanted it to and now that we know what kind of turnout our little fun run got, we can make this a bigger event.” “I’m already planning for next year. We’re going to make this more organized and bring out more people,” continued Lamb. “We will get more educational materials and spread the word beyond base to the Jacksonville community. Get ready. It’s going to be good.”

Oktoberfest 5K races to impact Jacksonville community outreach JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

The Onslow County Oktoberfest has a history of putting the money it raises to good use. As a part of an opportunity to support the Onslow community outreach programs, Oktoberfest benefits non-profit organizations like the soup kitchen and Christmas Cheer. In conjunction with the Onslow Oktoberfest comes the Oktoberfest 5K, a run that has sprung up in the past three years as a sidebar for the outreach programs who benefit from Oktoberfest activities. The Oktoberfest 5K has become one of the Jacksonville’s most popular community runs over the last couple of years, with more than 200 runners participating in an effort to raise money. With 180 preregistered runners and about 60 runners who showed up the day of the race, the Oktoberfest 5K raised enough money to substantially benefit programs like the homeless shelter, among many others. “When we started the Oktoberfest 5K, we thought it would be a good way to make money for the missions and ministries that need it,” said Lois Dupuis, race director. “We’ve gotten guys who come out every year to support the 5K and always run.” Dupuis and her team of willing volunteers began planning the race in April, knowing that it would take time to gather everything they needed for a successful race. Among the volunteers who worked with Dupuis was Whitney JezekPower, a combat casualty assistance visiting nurse

with the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. “This 5K benefits so many outreach programs that are really important in Jacksonville,” said Jezek-Power. “Today’s proceeds benefit the soup kitchen, the homeless shelter and meals on wheels, as well as many other programs. A lot of our veterans benefit from these programs.” Jezek-Power knows all too well the importance of the outreach programs that benefit veterans. She meets veterans wherever they need to be met, from street corners to homes to fast food restaurants. “This benefits our veterans who need assistance,” said JezekPower. “I see the importance of programs like those in the Onslow community outreach.” Vince Palancia, a retired Marine who also volunteers with the run, has seen the impact it has had on the community. “I was one of the first newcomers to downtown,” said Palancia. “I’ve seen so many positive changes as a result of help.” Palancia’s job on Saturday was to drive volunteers from Lejeune High School ROTC, to their outposts around the run course, where they would direct foot traffic and hand out water. He said the impact of the event was obvious when he looks at changes made to the downtown area as a result of beneficial programs. “One of the kids from the ROTC program asked me if downtown was as scary as it seemed,” said Palancia. “I just told him that we’ve made so many changes. Programs like this one make the changes. This is true community outreach.” As runners gathered

at the starting line, it was easy to tell who had been to the 5K before and who was new. Even with police directing traffic, the run went in the wrong direction, sending runners off on a run that would stretch from three to five miles, depending on how many times they got lost. “I came out to the Oktoberfest run because it looked like a nice, easy run,” said Cpl. Christine Kunish, a member of Headquarters and Support Battalion aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “But, I ended up getting lost during the run. Everybody was telling us different ways to go. I think I ran over four miles.” “Somehow the race got started backward,” said Dupuis. “The entire thing is backward now, but there is nothing we can do about it except make sure it doesn’t happen again next year.” As runners crossed the finish line after running an unknown distance, they grabbed fruit and water and talked about the oddity of running backward. “We were doing okay until we ran through Oktoberfest,” said Kunish. “Everybody started to give us some really strange looks at that point.” Dupuis kept the festivities going despite directional problems. Her volunteers stayed in good spirits and brushed off the directional mix up. Dupuis and her team of volunteers chalked up the mistake to a learning experience. “You live and you learn,” said Jezek-Power. “We get good suggestions every year. This year, we’ll learn from the mistake made here.”

The event benefits the Onslow community outreach programs. The Oktoberfest 5K raised more than $1,000 for the Onslow community outreach programs, which will be used to benefit the outreach efforts in the

Jacksonville area. Dupuis said that as long as the money was raised to help, she was okay with the outcomes of the backward race. “That’s why we’re

out here,” said Dupuis. “We raised money. We tied our race into the festival and it brought us lots of people. It’s all about raising money and promoting awareness.”

Camp Geiger punt-pass-kick challenge

Single Marine Program helps Marines stay active in autumn JESSIE HEATH Sports editor

Footballs arched through the air with ease as members of the Single Marine Program aboard Camp Geiger showed off their skills with the pigskin Monday. The punt-pass-kick challenge came about as the result of members of the Single Marine Program wanting to do something that would get them outside and keep them active during their time off. Antoni Jackson, the interim manager of the Camp Geiger Single Marine Program, started looking for something to keep the Marines in his program active and thought back to his childhood to find inspiration for the puntpass-kick challenge. “I remember doing the punt-pass-kick challenge every fall,” said Jackson. “I figured it was something we could do here that would be fun and keep them up and moving, instead of just sitting around.” Due to Camp Geiger being a student base, Jackson said it was important to gear all of his activities toward the students in his program. The punt-pass-kick challenge gave him the opportunity to do just that. With football season in full swing, the timing seemed perfect. With the SMP just getting off its feet at Camp Geiger, Jackson had to plan and execute

Antoni Jackson (far left) leads a group of Marines in the Single Marine program’s Punt-Pass-Kick challenge, Monday. The group participated in a three-tiered competition to see who could score the most points for the farthest distance passing, punting and kicking a football. the event without some of the materials he would normally use for the challenge. He improvised by using hulahoops taped to chairs and giant chess pieces to monitor who kicked how far. “We don’t have everything we would like to have yet, so we have to make things happen with what we have,” said Jackson. “That’s okay, though, because the guys don’t really care if you have great equipment

or not. They just want to see you trying to do something with them and for them.” Armed with two footballs, three hulahoops and a box of oversized chess pieces, Jackson led participants through a three-tiered challenge. Members of the SMP threw footballs through hulahoops to win points ranging from 20 to 40, made long-range passes across the lawn and kicked as far as they

could. Each Marine was given two chances to punt, pass and kick to see how far they could send the ball. At the end of every section of the challenge, Jackson would tally the totals and shout out the highest point winner of the section. “Most of these guys don’t really care about the scores,” said Jackson. “They just want to come have fun.” To get support for the

punt-pass-kick challenge, Jackson spread the word by going to each unit and sharing his plans with them. He pitched his ideas in meetings and went to individual units to invite them to join. “I learned to go to commanding officers and enlisted personnel and get a variety of guys to come out to our active events like the punt-pass-kick,” said Jackson. “Sometimes you get just a few guys to come out, but sometimes

you can get up to 200 on a weekend. It’s just a matter of getting the right event and spreading the word about it.” The punt-pass-kick challenge was one of many sporting events Jackson tries to provide to the Marines in the SMP. From football to running to ping-pong tournaments, Jackson said he knows the importance of keeping Marines active. “We have some guys who are really avid ping-pong players,” said Jackson. “We have intense ping-pong tournaments. We’re talking Watergate-type of competition. Whatever they like to do to stay active, I’ll do it with them.” Whatever the members of the SMP want to do, Jackson will find a way to make it happen. “Just like the puntpass-kick challenge, I’m up for anything they want to do,” said Jackson. After the scores of the whole challenge were tallied, Jackson named the winners of the event. Pvt. George Nelson was named the overall winner with 100 points. Nelson high score was followed closely by Pvt. Wesley Gavitt, with a total score of 92 points, and Pvt. John Lewis, who scored 85 points by the end of the event.

Did you know that pasta – even spaghetti – has origins in China? Some experts believe that pasta and noodles have a starting point in the Orient more than 40 centuries ago, and have traveled the world, eventually becoming tailored to various cultural diets. Not only did culinary competitors get a brief history lesson on the noodle, they were also required to whip up their best pasta-and-noodle based meals at the third quarter, Culinary Team of the Quarter Competition, at Mess Hall 411, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Oct. 18. Mark Allison, dean of culinary arts education at the Charlotte campus for Johnson and Wales University, said he was excited to be a judge for his first culinary competition aboard a Marine Corps installation. “This is my first event for the Marine Corps,” said Allison. “I’ve been in the culinary field for 33 years, and I’ve been judging in competitions for the last 16. This is the first time I’ve been on a Marine Corps base.” Allison added that he was very

A workshop given by the Marine Corps Community Services Relocation Assistance Office aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is providing valuable information to service members and their families who will soon make a permanent change of station. The “Making the Right Move” workshop assists service members and their families by informing them of what to expect at their next duty station and how to prepare for their travels. The relocation assistance program is a mission essential program that supports Marines, sailors and their families during a PCS move. It reduces the stress related to frequent relocations, which is an inherent part of the mobile military lifestyle. While the class is not mandatory, it is highly recommended. “I always hear people say, ‘I’ve moved plenty of times – I know what I’m doing,’ but they don’t realize the amount of resources and information we really offer,” said Steven Schmitz, relocation specialist, MCCS. Topics covered during the class included travel and pay entitlements and allowances, shipping personal property, travel tips, moving with children and teenagers, moving with pets, finding appropriate housing, Military OneSource, Military Home Front and accessing services at the new duty station.

Window tint violations becoming more prevalent on base PFC. NIK S. PHONGSISATTANAK

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

After-market vehicle cosmetics have existed from the time the first cars were mass produced. People found ways to enhance the way their cars looked to set them apart from everybody else. The variety, methods and popularity of enhancements have grown over time. Today, window tints are like “stunner shades” for vehicles, serving a twofold purpose of visual appeal as well as a practical way to provide shade for the driver and passengers. There are a few benefits to having tinted windows, but there are also many issues and risks involved with dark tints. This is the reason why many patrons aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River are receiving citations. From Jan. 1 to Sept. 22, the Provost Marshal’s Office has issued 453 tint

violation citations. “Illegal tints have always been a violation,” said civilian Lt. Marcos Vega, supervisory accident investigator with Provost Marshal’s Office aboard MCB Camp Lejeune. “It’s been a law for quite a long time. It’s just become more prevalent as new Marines move to the base.” Base Order 5560.2N, under Motor Vehicle Traffic Regulation, Chapter 3, states that all tinting, to include windshields, must meet all North Carolina guidelines. Under North Carolina Law, non-resident motorists must comply with their home state’s vehicle tinting laws or be in violation of N.C. Law. The state’s tint law allows non-reflective tint along the top windshield above the manufacturer’s approved safety glass (AS-1) line, which is the lower limit for tint. Front side, back side and rear windows must allow more than 35 percent of light in. This applies only to North Carolina, but

laws and regulations on tint vary across the nation. If a patron has a vehicle that is registered to another state, then North Carolina tint parameters do not apply. However, under N.C. Law, non-resident motorists must comply with their home state’s vehicle tinting laws or be in violation of Base Order 5560.2N. “If they are not in compliance with their state laws, then they also violate North Carolina state law, as well as base regulations,” said Vega. There are exceptions to tint that’s darker than state regulations. Vehicles that are exempt from tinting restrictions include sightseeing and tour passenger vehicles; for-hire vehicles such as taxis; common-carrier passenger vehicles, motor homes, ambulances, property-moving vehicles, limousines, law enforcement vehicles and excursion passenger vehicles. Other exceptions include minivans and pickup trucks which

are multipurpose vehicles designed to carry 10 or fewer passengers and either is constructed on a truck chassis or has special features designed for occasional off-road operation. There is also an exception for people with medical reasons, and this is allowed, again, to address safety. “When an officer approaches a vehicle during a traffic stop and he can’t see other occupants inside the vehicle, it’s a huge concern for the safety of the officer,” said Vega. “Heavily-tinted windows can also affect the driver’s safety and everybody else on the roadway, because of the reduced visibility that he is going to experience during inclement weather or night operations.” In addition, one of the largest aspects involving tint regulations is the anti-terrorism countermeasure that can be employed to keep our base safe, which is SEE TINT 2C

Red Ribbon Week to educate service members, civilians CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

In 1985, Enrique Camarena, an undercover agent for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and former Marine, was kidnapped in Jalisco, Mexico following his work in destroying a marijuana plantation with an annual production valued at $8 billion. Camarena was tortured, killed and buried in a shallow grave. He was discovered one month later. Three years later, U.S. Congress proclaimed that the last week of October be national Red Ribbon Week with the purpose to bolster awareness and combat drug use in honor of Camarena’s work. Twentythree years later, the week is still honored, especially aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, where the week will be dedicated to raising awareness in both the military and civilian circles, Oct. 23 through 29. “In order to have a healthy and productive work

environment, it obviously must be drug-free,” said Geri G. Haga, regional drug program coordinator for Marine Corps Installations East. “Alongside that, we teach everyone on base of all ages the dangers and effects of drugs and how to find the various resources and classes we also teach.” Red Ribbon Week is marked by the wearing of a red ribbon or red clothing during that period of time, whether it be by someone who overcame drug usage or a supporter against the abuse of drugs. Drug use has plagued society for countless decades, yet the efforts to stop such use have been ongoing for just as long. According to recent statistics, marijuana is the most used drug in the nation with crack cocaine and methamphetamines on the rise. “While this week is geared toward drug abuse awareness and prevention, it is a concept that is continually enforced, 24/7,” said Haga. “However, it is not just the service members and civilian employees

we focus on this week, but also the school children.” The number-one drug abuse problem occurring with children ranging from middle school to high school is the abuse of prescription drugs - 70 percent of them coming from their family or friends. To date, more than three million U.S. teenagers abuse prescription drugs with approximately 3,300 more beginning to experiment with them on a daily basis. “One of the most popular ways to abuse the prescription drugs is to hold ‘pharm parties,’” said Haga. “The teenagers take whatever they can find and put them all in a big bowl, taking handfuls of the sometimes deadly combinations.” Among the vendors to be set up in various convenience stores across the base, presentations will be made to the base schools as well as being offered at the Workforce Learning Center aboard the base.

One-third of Food and Sleeves down year-round Hospitality Excellence Awards draws some complaints given to MCB Camp Lejeune CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT

CPL. JONATHAN G. WRIGHT Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Last year proved to be a great period for Marine Corps Community Services restaurants throughout the Marine Corps, and according to the Food and Hospitality Excellence Award Program for 2010, such was also the case for Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Results were recently released which named and awarded 29 facilities for exceptional service for the Marines and sailors aboard the various Marine Corps installations across the globe. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune stood out among eight other bases for having the most facilities win awards, netting nine of the 29 awards. “Food and Hospitality Excellence Award winners represent the best of the best within the Marine Corps,” said Ric Pomeroy, branch head

for Marine Corps Food and Hospitality, MCCS headquarters. “The leaders at (MCB) Camp Lejeune who operate these venues demonstrate tremendous pride in taking care of Marines and their families.” Scattered throughout MCB Camp Lejeune, the nine award-winning facilities are Cluckers, Berkley Manor New City, Duffers Retreat, French Creek Snack Bar, Quickfuel, Hadnot Point New City, The Filling Station, The Sandbar and La Casita Loca. “Day in and day out, we strive to serve the military and their families with great service and a great food product, just as all facilities on base do,” said Diane Ruckman, manager of the Courthouse Bay Sandbar. “There isn’t one thing that made us stand out from all the rest, because we’re all here to serve our service members, and we do our best at that.” In fiscal year 2010,

RIBBON FROM 1C was held where the base’s various SACOs, as well as top leaders, gathered to go over current base drug statistics and discuss future projections. “Last year, we had 5,439 people go through our program with nine percent returning from later incidents,” said Robert Peebles, department head of the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program, Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. “From the end of September to now, there have been 849 drug-related visits. Any number other than zero, however, is too many.” While drug use is considerably

food facilities across the Marine Corps submitted materials, photographs and documentation of their efforts in the areas of customer service, human resources, sanitation and maintenance. The root cause of the submissions were not to find the best facilities in the Marine Corps, but to ensure each and every one of them were performing at the highest level of quality possible for their men and women in uniform. “No matter where they are or what their individual situations may be, they pull through and do their best,” said Pomeroy. “Whether it be in the Ball Center or in the most remote corners of the base, they all work together extremely well to provide top-notch catered food.” As results of the yearly inspections are being reviewed for fiscal year 2011, the Marines, sailors, civilians and families will not have to worry about the quality of their food.

lower than in various organizations which boast the strength of personnel as MCB Camp Lejeune, the base unfortunately has its share of drug abusers. The 23rd of the month began the highlighting of what the base is committed to doing year-round: focusing on eliminating drug use and educating those against it. “The schools, the (Marine Corps Exchange), the (recreation) centers, all will be sources of information and awareness for the week,” said Haga. “So wear some red or just have a red ribbon around – show your support for the removal of drugs from our workplace.”

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

In a short message published Marine Corps wide Oct. 18, Marines were ordered to carry out a simple task that takes all of 10 seconds to accomplish. Such a simple task, however, has proven to cause great concern and controversy as well as a few conspiracy theories. Marine Administrative Message 621/11 details the recent change in how Marines wear the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform – “sleeves down, year round,” effective Oct. 24. As long as Marines did not alter their uniforms, such as sewing their sleeves in place, the execution of the order is not a complicated one at all. Yet from the Internet to the airwaves, complaints have been registered by the hundreds. “We’re losing another part of our history as well as something that set us apart from the other branches of service,” said Staff Sgt. Dwayne Miller, career planner for 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division. “It was a way to tell if a Marine took pride in his uniform or not. From shining the old boots to having the ones we have now, such is the case for going sleeves up to sleeves down. Sleeves down, just like the rest of the (armed services).” First implemented into the Marine Corps in 2002 to replace the 20-year-old Battle Dress Uniform, the MCCUU phased out the old fatigues in 2004 with the desert and woodland patterns. In the decades past when the Marine Corps utilized the BDUs in Haiti, the purpose of rolling sleeves was to distinguish the Marines from the other service members, as well as safeguarding against the elements. “To me, it was a tradition - roll them up for the summer and down for the

The recent Marine Administrative Message 621/11, directing Marines to wear their Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform sleeves down year-round, melds the garrison Marine with the deployed Marine in terms of regulation uniformity. winter,” said Timothy Ciotti, retired master sergeant with 33 years of service. “However, Marines are going to get used to it and roll with the punches. If the commandant says they go down, they go down, and put up with it.” The reason behind the policy implementation is for uniformity across the Marine Corps. Regardless of how hot or humid it could be, deployed Marines conducting operations overseas wear their sleeves down to guard against sunburn and sand abrasion. The Marines in garrison are now expected to perform their duties under the same uniform regulations. “There will be no impact to the overall mission of the Marine Corps or influence on daily garrison op-

erations due to rolling our sleeves down,” said Capt. Kendra Hardesty, media officer with the Division of Public Affairs, Headquarters Marine Corps. “We simply rolled our sleeves down two weeks before we were scheduled for our seasonal uniform change, and we will remain sleeves down now throughout the year.” There is no validity to conspiracy theories that the Marine Corps is attempting to cover up arm tattoos or ensure that those Marines who do not possess the art of rolling sleeves do not continue to butcher their uniforms. The change will simplify the transition between combat theaters and training areas where sleeves are worn down and garrison bases where sleeves are worn up.

A judge samples a dish cooked by Marines food service specialists who participated in the third quarter Culinary Team of the Quarter competition at Mess Hall 411 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Oct. 18. CULINARY FROM 1C the food is basically ready to eat, there is a plethora of preparation that goes into it behind the scenes. “What you see today is hours and hours of work,” said Smith. “‘Our competition has grown over the last few years and even Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and (Marine Corps installations) in California have modeled their competitions after what we do.” Smith added that the four teams competing for the event were taken to a workshop where they were educated on the in’s and out’s of pasta. “We challenged our teams to make their own pasta – no spaghetti, no lasagna,” said Smith. “We have four judges here, but we told the competitors the only judges they should be concerned about are the judges that are standing on the other side of the chow line, three times a day. They are the Marines that we feed. Every day at your mess hall, there is a competition and these troops are judging you.” This time, the judges decided that first place and the People’s Choice Award would go to the Marines from Mess Hall 4013, aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River, who showed their pasta proficiency with a home-style fried ravioli, stuffed with a blend of ricotta and parmesan cheese; a lightly fried eggplant rollatini, layered with prosciutto and seasoned ricotta; a crab carbonara with ribbons of crab meat tossed in pancetta and “Mommas Old Fashioned Bread Pudding.”

The team that took second place, civilian chefs from Mess Hall 303, made a luscious lobster and orzo stew; fettuccini pasta made from scratch with alfredo and marinara sauce; stuffed chicken breast with a side of spaghetti squash and zucchini tomatoes; topped off with a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. “We trained for this over about two and half months and practiced everything on our menu six times,” said Cpl. Frank Cala, a culinary specialist with Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron, MCAS New River. “When we were told what the theme was, I felt I had to do it. This is my background. I’m 100 percent Italian and I had all my ingredients imported from Italy. It showed today – we won first place.” Cala added that they searched the Internet and ask his mother for thoughts on what dishes to prepare for the competition. “We also had a practice Culinary Team of the Quarter cook-off, so we would know what to expect so we could handle the situation appropriately,” said Lance Cpl. Charmaine Jackson, Cala’s teammate in the competition. The team plans to use the same theme and menu for their next competition, with a few tweaks here and there, of course. “Nothing was perfect today and there is always room for improvement,” said Cala. The fourth quarter, Culinary Team of the Quarter Competition is scheduled to be held this winter aboard the base.

Marines who normally spend their time with demolition and clearing areas of roadside bombs are completing a task that explores a different side of their job. Combat engineers with Marine Wing Support Squadron 271, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, have been assisting with some upgrades to Camp Devil Dog since early last month. “It’s giving me hands-on experience,” said Pfc. Kenneth Reid Storvick, a combat engineer working on the project. “Going to the demo range and blowing stuff up is a lot of fun but with this (project) we have to work together. Everybody has to be on the same page or things aren’t going to go up the way you want it to.”

Camp Devil Dog is an area for School of Infantry-East’s Marine Combat Training - the second stage of initial training for non-infantry Marines. The training they receive is focused on knowledge necessary for combat. The combat engineers have been building a small scale, self-contained forward operating base within Camp Devil Dog to train Marines. Before the construction, the area was lined with green wooden huts, built in 1990 as billeting spaces for Marines to live in during MCT, according to base officials. Modifications were made in order to incorporate them into a training area. The huts have seriously degraded within the last 21 years and were no longer considered safe. During training exercises on the forward operating base Marines will SEE ENGINEERS 3C

During the first Energy Fair held at the Marine Corps Exchange aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, booths displayed photovoltaic panels, lightemitting diodes, otherwise known as LED’s, and futuristic field technology, recently. The base is exploring use of all the green technologies available to include a $45 million project to install photovoltaic panels on carports and open areas across the base and 60 LED streetlamps

installed at newly renovated base gates at the main, Piney Green and Sneads Ferry entrances that will save the base 50 percent in energy costs and 90 percent on maintenance. The Energy Fair combined cutting-edge technology with projects illustrating what is currently in the works for MCB Camp Lejeune, other military installations and in the civilian industry. The incorporation of the Marine Corps growing themes of behavior change and the Expeditionary Energy Strategy were highly encouraged throughout the interactive and engaging displays.

The base Energy Fair was the first of its kind to specifically target energy-related technologies and the Department of Defense and Marine Corps energy reduction vision.

Are you afraid of the dark? The Public Works Division aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune isn’t. The PWD is using Halloween as the ideal day to kick off this year’s Light’s Out Lejeune campaign, since area service members and families will already be embracing the holiday’s associations with being in the dark. From noon to 1:00 p.m., and again from 7 to 8 p.m., families aboard MCB Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River are encouraged to cut off their lights and other nonessential electronics in conjunction with the campaign, Oct. 31. “There will be two hours during the day when we suggest people turn off their lights and also during the evening of Halloween, which will build on the Halloween theme by turning off the lights,” said Ensign Walter Anderson, assistant public works officer with the PWD. “If they are in the house, maybe they can use candles or smaller lights.”

Anderson also added families are encouraged to play games and have family fun, and at the end of the campaign, to write a story about their ‘lights out’ experience, or illustrate some of the things they did without power. Participants can send an email to and share their fun energy conservation methods or the creative things their family did during ‘Lights Out Lejeune.’ Other personnel have already expressed their efforts for Energy Awareness Month earlier in October. Base personnel participated in a energy awareness poster contest, hosted by the Youth Pavilion Marine and Family Programs, Oct. 7. Some also attended the base’s first Energy Fair Oct. 14, an Expeditionary Energy Focus Group, Oct. 18 and a leadership luncheon featuring the Keystone Club and the Torch Club, Oct. 21. For more information concerning Energy Awareness Month activities, contact Ensign Walter Anderson, at 451 0784, or visit the website mccslejeune. com/energy.

ENGINEERS FROM 2C learn to stand post, work at an entry control point, conduct basic safety patrols and run a basic command operations center, said base officials. “The combat engineers are getting an opportunity to build something and see how it works,” said Staff Sgt. David A. Rios, the staff noncommissioned officer in charge. “Most of the time engineers only get to build structures like this when they are on a deployment, and constructing combat outposts only in hostile areas,” a base official added. “This project gives MWSS-271 an opportunity to practice their skills here in a safe environment.” During deployments, they spend their time building, repairing and maintaining buildings, power supplies and roads. They are also responsible for employing explosives for construction and demolition projects, according to a combat engineer page on the Marine Corps website. “Back at the shop we’re messing with the tools, but we’re not out here building a full squad hut to size,” Storvick said. “It shows another part of our military occupational specialty that most people don’t see.” The area will hold three large and three small huts and a hygiene area. There will be an entry check point with civilian and vehicle search lanes incorporated for training purposes, and a larger, more realistic HESCO border fence, and guard towers. The project is scheduled to be finished early next month. “It’s a good learning environment,” Storvick said. “(MCT students) will be able to use it and see what a (forward operating base) is like.” This will be many Marines’ first experience with a FOB, where many of them will live and work in during eventual deployments. Through this experience, they will have a better idea of what conditions to expect and will be better prepared for the rigors of combat.

Joint Daytime Ceremony All service members, families and civilians are cordially invited to attend the Joint Daytime Ceremony, Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. at Liversedge Field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to observe Marine Corps tradition. The ceremony will include a historical pageant presented by Marines donning the many uniforms since 1775, and a cake cutting ceremony. All service members not in the ceremony are required to be in the uniform of the day. Civilians are requested to wear appropriate civilian attire. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be cancelled.

zero, meaning the buildings will consume only as much energy as they independently produce. Anderson said the focus of the Energy Fair was that service members and base personnel need to start making energy– saving choices in their daily work routines. Recommended changes are simple: turning off lights not in use, keeping room heating and cooling moderate and powering down equipment at the end of the day. The base has also participated in events like the Expeditionary Energy Strategy focus group that

was held Oct. 18 to spearhead a campaign focused on widespread behavior change based on energy use. To discuss energy goals for the expeditionary Marine, MCB Camp Lejeune plans to host an Expeditionary Energy Strategy event later this year. On Oct. 31, the base will observe “Lights out Lejeune” for two hours during the day to remind base residents of the importance of energy saving. For more information on energy awareness, visit www.

he root of fear is buried deep in the heart of darkness. Those who search for it will find it, but the journey back is paved by the unknown and unseen guardians of horror hiding in every shadow. Though most will make it home, no one will ever be the same. Every community has its secrets, and the residents of Terror Town aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune are ready to share some of theirs. “People should expect to get the yell scared out of them,” said Charlie Miller, manager of the base theater. Hidden for decades by its tamer predecessor, Marine Corps Community Services’ Haunted Forest, Terror Town rose from the grave last year to show and tell Marines, sailors and their families what really happened on its streets, including several murders and a lot of paranormal activity. “Last year, the word had to get out,” Miller explained. “People didn’t know what a Terror Town was. People didn’t know what to expect.” The brave souls who dared to face their fears found more than they bargained for, and many left visibly

shaken from the experience. Miller, the mastermind behind the creepy community, promises to deliver more of the same albeit a lot scarier. “We have some new rooms and new characters they’ll have to see,” he said. “It’s ever-changing.” Experts say that fear begins in the mind, and Miller plays on its psychological components before visitors even enter. Located in building 88 behind Hadnot Point 7-Day Store, the abandoned warehouse sets an atmosphere of anticipation as curious thrill-seekers wait in line listening to the screams of those who have gone before them. “No on knows what lurks behind these closed doors,” Miller teased. The nightmare begins as darkness falls, and even the toughest tourist won’t be walking down the trail slowly. The feeling of being watched and SEE TERROR 7D

‘Moneyball’ hits home run with smart sports flick Now playing at Midway Park “MONEYBALL� (PG-13) “Moneyball� is a sports film and a real-life account about the Oakland Athletics baseball team and its general manager. The focus of this film is the team’s modernized, analytical, saber-metric approach to assembling a competitive baseball team in early 2000. Brad Pitt (“Inglourious Basterds,� “Troy�) stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A’s, and the man who revolutionized the way professional baseball players are evaluated and the way Major League Baseball is played. Beane, a one-time failure as a baseball rookie turned general manager of the dismal Oakland A’s, found a way to make the team a winner by using more advanced techniques to find the right players at the right price. He built up a winning team despite a decreased budget by using statistical data to calculate the best and cheapest players. Jonah Hill (“Funny People,� “Knocked Up�) co-stars as Peter Brand, Beane’s soft-spoken statistical guru, a young and brainy Yale-educated economist, who learns how to play the game. Together, they take on conventional wisdom with a willingness to re-examine everything, armed with computer-driven statistical analysis long ignored by the baseball establishment.

Ultimately, this experiment will lead not only to a change in the way the game is played, but to an outcome that would leave Beane with a new understanding that transcends the game and delivers him to a new place. Also starring is Phillip Seymour Hoffman (“Doubt,� “Pirate Radio�) as Art Howe, the A’s field manager, who does not approve of Beane’s new methods; and Robin Wright (“The Conspirator,� “State of Play�) as Sharon, Beane’s ex-wife. Among the players are Chris Pratt (“Bride Wars�) as Scott Hatteberg; and Stephen Bishop (“Friday Night Lights�) as David Justice. The gifted Bennett Miller (“Capote�) directed this authentic and intelligent sports flick with Pitt giving one of his best and engaging performances, expertly playing Billy Beane. Aaron Sorkin (“The Social Network�) co-scripted this adaption of the 2003 non-fiction book by Michael Lewis, “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,� with Steven Zaillian (“Schindler’s List�). “Moneyball� is a true and hilarious story of mind over matter, a bittersweet and rousing account of a once would-be baseball superstar who turned his fiercely competitive nature to management. This is a surprisingly smart and entertaining movie about baseball statistics, our national game, and a movie not just for sports or baseball fans.

Now playing in Jacksonville “REAL STEEL� (PG-13) “Real Steel� is a science-fiction fantasy and sports movie. The story is set in the near future where the sport of boxing has gone high tech. In this world, where machine boxing is the rage, a down-onhis luck robot trainer finds a killer fighter and also re-establishes a relationship with his son. Hugh Jackman (“XMen,� “Australia�) stars as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 200-pound, 8-foottall steel robots took over the ring. Now, Charlie is nothing but a struggling small-time promoter who earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from

one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max, played by Dakota Goyo (“Thor�), to build and train a championship contender. Together, they try to restore a rusty hunk-of-junk robo-fighter named Atom, thinking that they might have found a champion in this discarded robot. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena

are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. Co-starring are Kevin Durand (“Legion�) as Ricky; Anthony Mackie (“The Adjustment Bureau�) as Finn; Evangeline Lilly (“The Hurt Locker�) as Bailey, Charlie’s devoted friend; and Hope Davis (“Charlie Bartlett�) as the wealthy Aunt Debra. Director Shawn Levy (“Date Night,� “Night at the Museum,� “The Pink Panther�) goes high tech and imagines a world in which human boxing is obsolete and replaced by mechanized beings. Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard worked as an adviser in this movie that

replaces the human boxer with remote-control robots and helped Jackman get into top-notch fighting form; however, most of the boxing sequences are motion-capture animation. Steven Spielberg (“Jurassic Park�) and Robert Zemeckis (“Cast Away�) are executive producers in this sci-fi venture. “Real Steel� is a gritty action ride and an emotional come-back story with plenty of metal-onmetal violence, but the film also shows a wonderful uplifting father-and-son relationship story. Ms. Huneycutt is the public affairs assistant at the base Public Affairs Office.

orget red and blue. Pink is the new power color. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is nearly finished, but the ladies aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune still have something to celebrate – they’re survivors. “If you’ve been through the battle, you need to celebrate your victories,” said Irene Sargent, Population Health coordinator, Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. “They are pink warriors.” Dozens of military spouses and their supporters came together for the annual Military Wives Breast Cancer Luncheon at the Tarawa Terrace Religious Education Center aboard the MCB Camp Lejeune housing area, Monday. “The intent of hosting the luncheon is to further educate survivors with information to help them better their health and well-being,” said host Beth Hart, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. “We’ve put our

talents and commitment together to make sure this event is successful.” As the women took their seats to enjoy their catered meal, their easy camaraderie paid witness to the fact that a diagnosis doesn’t have to stop you. “It’s not a death sentence any more,” said Lt. Cmdr. Brian Reed, a general surgeon at NHCL. “When you’re given a diagnosis that is life-threatening, you immediately think you are alone, but you are not alone.” Reed spoke from his heart to the brave women, acknowledging the fact that most of them already knew the statistics and reminding them that the intimacy formed between them is a gift. “No one’s experience is the same,” he noted. “At the end of the day, what are we doing to make a difference in our community in order to make people more knowledgeable?” Capt. Daniel Zinder, NHCL commanding officer, sees several breast cancer patients come through the halls of the hospital and made his speech quick so no one could see the tears he was

holding back. “We’re so glad to have survivors,” he said. “Now, we need to focus on prevention and a cure.” While their husbands fight overseas, these women have been fighting an invisible enemy. Some have been battling for as long as 18 years, while others just entered breast cancer boot camp. However, no matter how long or short the journey, it is much tougher without a support system. “When I was diagnosed, I felt like an alien,” remembered Sheila Johnson, a military spouse and breast cancer survivor. “There are things that only people who have gone through this can answer. They’re the people you can lean on. We’re here to help each other.” Emotions ran from concern to hope as stories were shared, but despite their trials and tribulations, the ladies radiated a joy unique only to survivors. “When I was diagnosed, I became a P.O.W. – a prisoner of what-if,” Sargent told the crowd. “I was worried about my kids, SEE CANCER 5D

After we have survived a difficult time in our life, after a painful period has ended and the passing of some time, we begin to see how the support from caring folks made a difference. We see how God intervened to bring good out of our painful time. The benefit of hindsight allows us to realize that even during a very hurtful experience, things were in place for a better outcome. However, while we are in the difficult period of time, it is hard to see how any good will come out of our experience. The loggerhead turtles overcome many obstacles for a successful nesting season. Once in awhile, a turtle gets lost and ends up in the dunes, away from the ocean, stuck in the soft sand, baking in the hot sun with no way of getting back to the comfort of the ocean. The rescue of these stranded turtles appears harsh. Often, they are turned on their backs, a rope tied to their flipper, and then dragged over the dunes. This seems like a terrible condition for the sea creature, sand filling its open mouth as it slides along upside down. However, once back on the beach and turned over, the incoming tide begins to wash over the turtle, cleaning off the sand, reviving the dried skin, quenching thirst until the head lifts up, the flippers began to move and it starts to swim back into the safety of the ocean. In Joshua 1:5, God’s promise is, “I will not leave you nor forsake you.” God’s presence is easier to see in hindsight and more difficult to see during the painful time. When we are lost, when our world is upside down, when we feel dragged through the grit of life and it feels like we’re going in the wrong direction, when it seems that no possible good could come out of this bad experience and the well intentioned help from others seems like injury, it is very difficult to remember that God is helping us. Fortunately, his promise to rescue us is constant and our hope for help does not depend on our experience. May God help us to see what seems like harm is actually a part of our rescue.

New Parent Support Program offers home visitation PFC. NIK PHONGSISATTANAK Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

There are many challenges that military families face, from dealing with pregnancy while a spouse is deployed, to figuring out how to get a baby to sleep through the night, and finding the time to take a parenting class may not be possible. Those short on time or unable to attend classes are in luck. The New Parent Support Program, offered through Marine Corps Community Services, offers their Home Visitation program, where help arrives at the door. Their staff can assist parents by offering tips and answering questions about caring for their baby. “The core program that we offer is home visitation,” said Mary Caldwell, program manager with New Parent Support Program, Marine and Family Services Division, Behavioral Health Division, MCCS, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “Headquarters (Marine Corps) has said, ‘I need for you to be able to offer one-on-one services to all Marine families to give them encouragement, support and education on what to expect from a child from birth to age 5.’” The goal of the support program is to help improve the lives of service members and their families by providing resources and education.

Home visitation is the key to all the resources on and off the base. Everyone is eligible... Mary Caldwell, New Parent Support Program manager

Home visits provide an opportunity for parents to ask question and discuss their concerns in the privacy of their own home. The program uses the Academy of Pediatrics as a backdrop for information and education as well as child care information for ages up to 5. The staff conducting home visitations is a team of professionals, and includes registered nurses and licensed clinical social workers. All the home visitors are professionally trained and are bound by confidentiality, so families do not have to worry about protecting their privacy, added Caldwell. “This is a voluntary program that provides support for families, especially for families that are new to the area, having their first baby or are distant from family,” said Caldwell. “Family support is important to us, and when you don’t have that you can feel really isolated. Home visits provide a sort of a network of support.” Home visitations can be scheduled monthly or as often as once a week to help accommodate the needs of the family. Nurses and social workers can bring helpful

resources such as books or DVDs. They can help parents with many challenges, to include single parenting, separated parents and those who are adopting children. “Home visitation is the key to all the resources on and off the base,” said Caldwell. “Everyone is eligible for home visitations. Headquarters (Marine Corps) has made an even stronger commitment to this program because it is a prevention program. You always want work on prevention as opposed to reaction.” The only requirement is families must live within 50 miles of the base. “The support helps to prepare and strengthen families,” said Caldwell. “It also helps patrons stay in the military longer when service members and their families feel as if they are being taken care of. It’s a fun program that can increase knowledge and skill sets for parents. Our staff has been here for years, and that says that they enjoy what they’re doing. We feel good about making a difference in those families.” For more information, visit www.mccslejeune. com/npsp or call 449-9501.

CANCER FROM 3D my husband, everything. (Events and groups like these) answer questions. They help you become free.” Sargent lightened the mood with laughter, telling funny, personal stories and encouraging the lovely ladies that life is not finished just because they are in a war. “When you are facing the enemy, you have to be equipped,” she said. “You can fight when you’re prepared with knowledge and support.” She explained how they each have the responsibility to motivate themselves, not just physically but also mentally and spiritually, because stress and worry may be the sneaky enemies you don’t see coming. She also noted that making future plans is a helpful way for them to keep their spirits lifted. “You still need to have dreams and


goals,” Sargent stated. “If you stop dreaming, you stop living.” Early detection and preventative measures, like mammograms, have turned the tides in the war on cancer. “You have the power to motivate others to get their mammogram,” Sargent said. “There’s power in the pink.” Every three minutes, another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and experts estimate more than 200,000 new cases will be reported by the end of the year. “My proposal is this – less talk, more action,” Reed said. “Share your stories with each other.” Though it’s never an easy pill to swallow, breast cancer is not an undefeatable enemy, and it is not the end of your world. “We are winning the fight,” declared Reed.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune

Children and families arrived with smiles at the Johnson Primary School’s annual Fall Festival aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Oct. 20. “Today is a day to celebrate our home and school partnership,” said Michelle Allen, assistant principal of Johnson Primary School. “This is an annual event that helps to build that connection and relationship between the communities.” The evening was chilly, but children kept themselves warm by staying active or by participating in indoor games. Children jumped in bouncy castles and tested their strength on the bungee run, one of many activities offered at the event. When it got too chilly, families went into the gymnasium to test their luck on the cake walk and the silent auction. “It’s a good opportunity for the kids and families to

get together and have a fun time,” said Gunnery Sgt. Daren Brown, a radio chief with 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division. “We should always take advantage of events for our kids and the community.” It was an opportunity for families to take a break from the norm. Children got their hair colored and faces painted, and their clown-like makeovers made others smile. “I like that there are so many games to play and I like them all,” said Whitley, a first grade student at the event. Parents followed their little clowns as they tried everything from pie throwing to ring tossing. Selena Wood, a military spouse who attended the event with her child, said she was happy to see the variety of activities for children. “It is also nice to see Marines out here helping. It shows their support, and it’s great that the school

holds events such as this,” she added. Cpl. Mike Nenish, a rifleman with 1st Bn., 8th Marines, didn’t mind taking a day off of work to help with the festivities. “We’re here to help out at the event,” said Nenish. “It’s nice to be out here supporting the families. It’s a break from the regular workday and it’s nice to see the kids smiling.” The event was a chance for the community to bond and it was also a chance for the school to show families their appreciation. “The most important thing about an event like this is getting the families out, and getting them together,” said Scott Tefft, principal of Johnson Primary School. “It’s a time of fellowship where people can reconnect. Seeing these families waving to each other and talking gives a great sense of community.” For information on school events, call 451-2431.

Jumping arachnids, shrieking shacks and the spinning vortex of fear are only the beginning. “If you think you’ve been through this before, you’re wrong,” said Yolanda Mayo, Marine Corps Exchange main store manager. “This is something new.” Robert Wolf, an MCCS employee, has played his part in scaring Marines every Halloween season for more than 15 years, but he said Terror Town has taken it to a new level. “Some of the themes are the same, but there’s a lot of new stuff,” he explained. “The path is different, and there are a lot more surprises.” Creating the perfect eerie environment doesn’t just happen over night, but several Marines were willing to have a hand in putting together the lavish lair. “I enjoy doing this kind

of work,” said Pfc. Nathan Pederson, a student with Logistic Operation School, Maric Corps Combat Service Support Schools, Camp Johnson. “(The sets) are pretty elaborate.” Wolf takes pride in the final product. “I love providing something for the Marines and their families to come out and enjoy,” he said. “It’s fun.” One noteable difference to this year’s spectacle is the schedule change. Instead of running for a full week, Miller decided to break it up into two weekends when most people have time to spend with their families. “Sometimes it’s hard to get out a do something in the middle of the week,” Miller said. “It’ll be more impacting for patrons. I’m looking forward to seeing big crowds.” With one weekend already dead and buried, Terror Town will welcome its final guests beginning Friday evening and build-

ing up to the scariest night of the year. “It’s a spooky time,” Miller noted. “People should come spend the holiday with us.” While visitors should watch their steps and their backs, safety is always a top priority. The nightmare-inducing event is not recommended for children younger than 12 years old or people who suffer from seizures or asthma. For your safety, no strollers, cameras, lights of any kind (including flashlights), food, drink, lighters, masks or umbrellas are permitted. Terror Town will be open Friday and Saturday from 7 to 9:30 p.m., as well as Sunday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Halloween hours are also from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5, and the event is open to the public.
