Dam Neck firefighters recognized for life-saving response BY MC2 ANTONIO P. TURRETTO RAMOS NAS Oceana Public Affairs Firefighters from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire & Emergency Services at Dam Neck Annex were recognized March 15 for their actions that resulted in saving the life of an active duty Sailor last month. On Feb. 6, a 911 call resulted in the dispatch of the City of Virginia

Beach Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services, as well as the Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire & Emergency Services at Dam Neck, to respond to a service member who went into cardiac arrest while jogging on the track at Dam Neck Annex, recounted John Miller, a firefighter and emergency medical technician (EMT) at Dam Neck and one of the first responders being recognized.

Miller explained both the city and base first responders were called because of a mutual aid agreement between the two agencies. Along with Miller, first responders from Dam Neck included firefighter/ EMTs Christopher Branch, Brett J. Smith and Michael Phelps, Battalion Chief Donald Washburn Jr. and Fire Capt.Vince R. Jackson. The Dam Neck responders arrived to witness bystanders per-

forming CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation] and proceeded to pick up that process immediately, said Miller. “We converted him, so basically the individual came back to life.We started back boarding and C-collared this person; then the patient coded again or basically had a heart attack, so we started CPR again,” Miller explained. — See Firefighters, Page 8

‘Stuff’

Photo by MC1 Chad J. McNeeley

BY LT. ANDREW BROD NAS Oceana Chaplain One corny line I have heard over and over from preachers is, “You’ll never see a U-Haul behind a hearse.” The ancient Egyptians are famous for trying to do this. As archeologists have uncovered tombs of the great Pharaohs, they’re filled with priceless treasures that have been sitting there for thousands of years, not being used, not being spent, not helping the Pharaoh in any way. It just becomes clutter. As military members, most of us are used to moving; it’s a daunting process sometimes, packing up all of our stuff, cataloging all of our belongings, making insurance claims at the end of the move to replace what was damaged. Now we don’t have golden masks covered with rare jewels — as least I don’t — but sometimes we act as though we do. We go to great lengths to obtain and maintain possessions, but is our focus truly in the right place? In the Gospel of Matthew 6:19-21, it says “Don’t collect for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Treasures in heaven are things that are eternal. Too many times our hearts are devoted to stuff; our lives are full of stuff and we miss out on what will provide true contentment in life. We substitute things for a life that is honoring to God, we substitute things (or the pursuit of wealth and things) for time spent with our families, we substitute things for a life lived with honor and integrity and instilling those values in the people we love, lead and follow. When you go home today, take a look at your home, take a look at your bank account, take a look at your life and family.Are you spending your efforts and money on things that will stand the test of time when you’re gone? Or are you spending it on what will be forever?

Hagel: leadership a team effort BY CLAUDETTE ROULO American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel took the ceremonial oath of office March 14 in a Pentagon ceremony presided over by Vice President Joe Biden. “Throughout your life you’ve led,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said of Hagel. “Today you will continue to lead in this very important task.” From his enlistment in the Army in 1967, to his time in the Senate, and now today’s ceremonial oath, the oath of office has signaled critical periods throughout Hagel’s professional life, Biden said. “Whenever you went into a battle zone with Chuck,” the vice president said, “everyone else would sit and listen to the combatant commanders.You’d look around to see where Chuck was and he was literally outside, talking to the noncommissioned officers ... So it should scare the hell out of you generals to have a noncommissioned officer [as defense secretary].” “We’ve all known an awful lot of senators and congresspersons,” Biden said, “but I’ve never met one with more integrity than Chuck Hagel, and I think that is the single greatest ingredient a man or woman can bring to this job.” When the president asks Hagel’s views on a critical issue, Biden said, he knows he’ll get his unvarnished opinion. Speaking to a full house at the Pentagon auditorium, the 24th secretary of defense said he felt blessed by the support of his friends, family and colleagues. “Regardless of how high anyone ever rotates in [their] profession, your faith, your family and your friends are always in the end what matters most,” he said. “You’re always judged by who you associate with,”Hagel said,adding no association is more important or noble that the one he now has — with the men and women who unselfishly serve the United States.

“The president has given me a tremendous opportunity,” he said.“I couldn’t be more proud than to be in this position today,” the secretary added,“and I would commit to you that I will always do what I think is best for our men and women in uniform and their families.” “Leadership is a team business,” Hagel said.“It’s going to take a team effort in this country today to help self-correct where we are and where we have come from and what this country has been through the last few years.” The world is changing at an unprecedented rate, the secretary said, presenting abundant challenges, but also abundant possibility. The essence of a successful generation is how they respond to challenge, he said.“The great generations have always responded in great ways,”he continued. “Not many people ever have an opportunity to shape and define the world and shape and define the future,”the secretary said.“We all have that opportunity now.” The trials lying ahead of the department are unlikely to go away quickly, Hagel said, but its people should not get bogged down in short-term thinking.“When we step back and think ... it’s about things that are so much bigger than all of us,” he said. Militaries have long been forced to adapt to the realities of their time and the dynamics and threats of those times, Hagel said.“Those that did not were defeated, or they declined, or they just disappeared,”he continued.“The future of our country in a defining world order is at play right now.” Alliances and relationships are essential to the survival of mankind,the secretary said.“I don’t know if there’s ever been a time in the history of man when it also represents so many possibilities and so much potential to do so much good in so many different ways if we’re just wise enough to use the resources that we have to build relationships ... That’s where we start.” “Together we will make this a better world and we’ll make a better world for all mankind,” Hagel said.

THE GREATEST MANHUNT IN HISTORY

CNP discusses Sailor and family budget impacts with Congress By Defense Media Activity - Navy

“A high-voltage thriller with shocking gravity.” ¶ 7L[LY ;YH]LYZ 963305. :;65,

ON BLU-RAY COMBO PACK & DVD

WASHINGTON (NNS) — The Chief of Naval Personnel joined personnel chiefs from the other services and Department of Defense civilian leadership March 13 in testifying before the House Armed Services Committee on the impacts of the current budget environment on military personnel and family-related programs. Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk discussed how the current budget environment is having significant impacts on Sailors and civilians, to include the potential furlough in April and evaluation of the Navy’s ability to sustain the tuition assistance program as it currently exists. The situation has caused adjustments in deployment schedules, resulting in uncertainty and disruption in the lives of Navy families. “The furlough of the nearly 186,000 civilians and the attendant 20 percent pay

reduction will significantly affect them and their families. The absence of this highly skilled workforce impacts our ability to sustain critical family support programs and operate our educational institutions and learning centers; the hiring freeze and release of over 650 temporary workers aggravates the situation,”Van Buskirk said. He joined the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Jessica Wright; Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Dr. Jonathan Woodson; Marine Corps Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Affairs Lt. Gen. Robert E. Milstead;Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff for Manpower, Personnel and Services Lt. Gen. Darrell D. Jones; and Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel Lt. Gen. Howard B. Bromberg. While much of the testimony to the key military committee focused on negative budget impacts, Van Buskirk did point out — See Impact Page 7

HM-14 training at Panama City about mine warfare expertise, location BY JACQUI BARKER Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division Public Affairs PANAMA CITY, Fla. — One of the only two MH-53E helicopter squadrons to fly mine warfare missions in the U.S. Navy’s fleet continues training at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama because of mine warfare expertise and location. Homeported in Norfolk,HM-14’s detachment comprised of 150 Sailors arrived in Panama City, Fla.,Feb. 24, to conduct Airborne Mine Countermeasure (AMCM) training in the Joint Gulf Test Range waters, located in the Gulf of Mexico. “This is the place where the expertise resides for mine warfare missions,” said Lt. Cmdr. Jim Schwarze.“Mine warfare is important to the U.S. Navy and flying MH-53Es and towing against realistic mine threats allow us to stay prepared to keep the sea lanes open.The MH-53E is the most unique helicopter in the world.” Schwarze noted that given today’s technologies, mines are inexpensive to fashion and can cause multi-millions of dollars’ worth of damage and injure or kill Sailors.

“We fly MH53E sea dragons in the Navy for AMCM missions with sweep and hunting capabilities that are deployed from the back of the aircraft, to include the MK106 and the AN/AQS-24A sonar utilizing the Joint Gulf Test Range,” he said. “The Joint Gulf Test Range offers us the chance to train in a real environment using simulated but realistic mine threats — and the weather is much nicer here this time of year than it is in Virginia.” In 1945, the Secretary of the Navy established the U.S. Navy Mine Countermeasures Station to provide the U.S. Navy with a year-round, mine warfare test area. The first AMCM flight was conducted in the waters of St. Andrew Bay just off the NSWC PCD landing pad in the early 1950s and today, the U.S. Navy continues to utilize the national asset that is the Joint Gulf Test Range flying both MH-53E — See HM-14 Page 13 PHOTO RIGHT: M-14 squadron Sailors conduct airborne mine countermeasure (AMCM) training towing the MK-106 tow sled on March 5, in the waters of St. Andrew Bay near Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division.

NMCRS offers ‘Budget for Baby’ classes Hampton Roads BY MC2(SW) JONATHAN SUNDERMAN Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs Throughout the month of March, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) will be holding its annual active duty fund drive as a way to educate Sailors and Marines on the many services available to them and their families, as well as generate much needed funds to support its programs. NMCRS is a private non-profit organization whose programs are funded entirely by charitable donations.In 2012, NMCRS provided just under $43 million in interest-free loans and grants worldwide — $6.7 million of which was used in Hampton Roads for 12,934 financial cases. Of many services offered by NMCRS nationwide, the Budget for Baby (B4B) program is designed specifically for new or prospective parents who want to learn about the ways a baby can impact a family’s finances.B4B classes are open to all Navy and Marine families, and are held at full service centers in Hampton Roads. “Kids are expensive,” said Kathy Nelson, director, NMCRS Norfolk office.“All of us want to provide for our children the best we can, and this class offers financially sound information and valuable cost-saving resources for prospective parents.” During the volunteer-based, 90-minute seminars, participants learn about variations in pay, increased expenses,

common consumer pressures targeted at new parents, daycare options and entitlements available through both government and private sources. “I went and I really enjoyed it,” said Yeoman 3rd Class Precious Leslie, a prospective mother.“The one thing I really liked was how much information they put out about daycare. Before I went to the class, I had a lot of questions about how much it would cost and which ones are the best in the area.They provided all the necessary information and I was happy with the services I received.” The program’s objectives are to help make service members and their families aware of the increased living expenses that come with a new baby, and go over effective ways to make adjustments in spending and saving habits. “It’s literally as easy as making a phone call to any one of our four main Hampton Roads offices to sign up for a class,” said Nelson. “We even conduct mobile classes, where we take the program to the service members at their commands.” Families that attend the seminars, or receive a one-onone“Budget for Baby Workshop,”will receive a free layette from the society that contains many useful baby items, as well as a special gift from a society volunteer. “I didn’t know a lot about [NMCRS] programs early on in my Navy career,” said retired Navy Master Chief James Warren.“My wife and I were able to receive a layette kit [around 1983] when we had our first child. Times were tough back then — just as they are now — and as a young Sailor, I was grateful to have a program like that around.”

The layette, known as the “Baby’s First Seabag,” consists of a coordinated set of bedding, clothing, baby books, coupons and handmade gifts from NMCRS volunteers. To receive a layette, eligible clients should contact the NMCRS office closest to their duty station or residence to register for the Budget for Baby class, or make an appointment to see a caseworker. Last year,NMCRS conducted nearly 800 Budget for Baby workshops worldwide, with more than 7,500 attendees. More than 6,100 layettes were distributed. This year, individuals can contribute to the annual fund drive by visiting www.nmcrsfunddrive.org, and can donate anytime with their credit card. Also, Sailors and Marines can make payments using an allotment,which is generally conducted at command-specific fund drives. Other fundraising methods include car washes, bake sales, cookouts and fun runs, among others. NMCRS offices are located at approximately 250 locations ashore and afloat throughout the world,including on NAS Oceaena.The societies work is accomplished mainly by its 3,600 dedicated, trained and caring volunteers who are supported by a small cadre of employees. For more information on the NMCRS Fund Drive at NAS Oceana, contact your command representative or visit www.nmcrsfunddrive.org.

Firefighters: recognized for helping save Sailor’s life at Dam Neck

Photo by MC2 Antonio P. Turretto Ramos

Firefighters from the Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire & Emergency Services at Dam Neck were recognized on March 14 for their actions that saved the life of a Sailor last month LEFT -RIGHT: Firefighter/EMT Christopher Branch, Firefighter/EMT Brett J. Smith, Firefighter/EMT Michael Phelps, Battalion Chief Donald Washburn Jr., Fire Capt. Vince R. Jackson and Firefighter/EMT John R. Miller

— Continued from page 1 It was shortly after the Dam Neck first responders resumed CPR that Virginia Beach EMS arrived and used a defibrillator to bring the patient back yet again, before EMS transported him to the nearest hospital, according to Miller. “You are a highly trained corps of folks; you have to have the training, you have to have the skill set and then you have to be provided the opportunity. Those opportunities are few and far between, thank God,” said Capt. Bob Geis, commanding officer of NAS Oceana, during the awards presentation. “That’s why you train the way you train and that’s why we trust our lives in your hands every day.Thank you for what you did and thank you for what you do every day,” added Geis. Although first responders are constantly training to maintain optimum performance of their duties, every person can prepare to respond in a life-saving way by learning CPR, according to District Fire Chief Ken Snyder from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire & Emergency Services at Oceana.

“These are the most stressful events for our emergency medical services calls and these guys did a great job,” said Snyder. Snyder noted that normally when a person who is within the normal age range for military service has a comparable medical emergency, the chances of resuscitation are slim without bystander intervention. “Bystander CPR can never be undervalued,” added Snyder. The average response time for the Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Fire & Emergency Services at Dam Neck Annex and NAS Oceana is approximately three or four minutes, according to Snyder. “It can be critical, for a bystander, if they see somebody go down to immediately start circulating their blood and breathing for them because it prolongs that person’s chances of being resuscitated,” said Snyder. CPR and first aid classes are offered through the Southeastern Virginia Chapter of the American Red Cross. Visit http://www.redcross.org/ va/norfolk to see a schedule of upcoming classes.

NAS Oceana has been host to many“firsts”in naval aviation during the installation’s 70-year history.While the latest accomplishment by women at Oceana saw Capt. Sara Joyner become the first female commander of a carrier air wing during a CVW-3’s change of command Jan. 4,2013,women have been making naval aviation history throughout Oceana’s history One of those women was Ensign Rosemary B. Conatser. On July 24, 1974, Conatser became the first female pilot to report to NAS Oceana, after being designated as a naval aviator on June 17 of that year. Her arrival was a media sensation, with television stations and newspapers from aroundVirginia interviewing the 21-year-old Conatser.The entire center of the Aug. 1, 1974 Jet Observer was devoted to her arrival with photos of her, including the media interviews. The Jet Observer story described her as “the attractive and petite 5 ft. 4 in. pilot,” who had to deal with the problem of flight suits being too large. By the time she arrived at her first squadron, Composite Squadron (VC) 2, Conatser, who grew up in San Diego, was well known. At 19, she became the first woman to graduate from Purdue University’s aeronautical program and was a qualified private and commercial pilot with instrument, commercial instructor and commercial instrument instructor ratings. She had nearly 700 hours in civilian aircraft before becoming a Navy pilot. Even in that first round of media interviews at Oceana, Conatser had already set her sights on a professional flying career.Conatser applied for a commission in the Navy through Officer Candidate School,saying the opportunities as a Navy pilot far outweighed those of a civilian pilot. She was one of the first eight women selected for naval flight training,with six of those eight earning their wings of gold.The other five women were Barbara Allen Rainey, Jane Skiles O’Dea, Judith Ann Neuffer,Ana Marie

Fuqua and Joellen Drag. The new pilot was married to Ensign Douglas Conatser, also a naval aviator, stationed at Attack Squadron 42, an A6 training squadron at NAS Oceana VC-2 flew both the S-2 Tracker, a propellerdriven plane, and the A-4 Skyhawk. Conatser was first assigned to fly the S-2s.She made naval aviation history again when she became the first female military aviator on the East Coast to fly solo in a military jet,the A-4L Skyhawk on Jan.29, 1976. She made the flight as part of a two-plane formation with Lt.ScottWallace in the second Skyhawk. During an interview with the Virginian-Pilot on Jan. 30, 1976, Conatser noted that the most difficult part about the transition to jets was “that it’s faster; therefore,you have to think faster.” As she pursued her naval aviation career, Conatser preferred to be recognized on her merits, not because she was a woman. Often asked if she thought women should be allowed to fly in combat, her answers showed how much she had thought about that possibility. “I don’t think I would like to fly anymore than anyone else in combat,” she continued,” but as a naval officer, I think it would be my duty as much as anyone else’s,” Conatser said during the 1976 interview with theVirginianPilot,before the rules were lifted that prohibited women from flying in combat. Also in 1976, as a lieutenant junior grade, she converted to theA-7 Corsair II.On Dec.14,1976,an article in the Panama City News-Herald in Fla.,reported that Conatser became the first woman to qualify in the Corsair II. While stationed at Oceana,every of Conatser’s accomplishments, even off duty, made news. An Aug. 7, 1975 Jet Observer article reported that Conatser, with fellow

eana, NAS Oc olo t a 2 C from V st to s onatser n the East Coa ed to be C y r a m liev no ose Lt.j.g. R he first woma awk and is be ilitary jet t h y t e k a S se , m becam he A-4L so in a single- conference on t — t in a je to do press ht. woman wn at a the first ere she is sho r landmark flig e H h . t f g aircra llowin 1976, fo Jan. 29, flight school graduate, Lt. j.g. Joellen Drag, competed in the 1975 Powder Puff Derby.The two naval aviators were among the 95 finishers in the all-female, transcontinental race.The women flew a Cessna 172 provided by the NAS North Island, Calif. Flying Club. They averaged 128 miles per hour on their July 4 -7 flight, which was seven miles over their handicap.They flew a total of 2,590.75 miles in 19.5 hours. Conatser,whose last name later became Mariner,went on to become the first woman to command an operational aviation squadron, Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron (VAQ) 34 before her retirement from the Navy as a captain in 1997. — Information compiled by Cathy Heimer from the Jet Observer archives and also from“Mud Flats to Master Jet Base: Fifty Years at NAS Oceana,” by Amy Waters Yarsinske

SAN DIEGO (NNS) — Commander, Naval Air Forces, took time to meet with the oldest living naval aviator while on board Naval Air Station North Island March 5. Vice Adm. David H. Buss and retired Vice Adm.David Richardson,a 99-year-old World War II and Korean War fighter pilot, shared stories and talked about the changes in naval aviation over the past 70 years. Richardson, a Mississippi native, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1936, completed flight training in 1940, and then reported to Fighting Squadron 5 as a frontline pilot, flying Grumman F3Fs and F4Fs during the Pacific War. Richardson spent time flipping through an old flight log book and recalled critical moments in battle, where he and other Wildcat fighters came across enemy fire, and the measures they took to counter those attacks. Buss said modern naval aviation stands

upon the shoulders of World War II aviators like Richardson, who proved themselves and the importance of sea based air assets, in places such as Midway and the Coral Sea. Richardson responded by pointing out that they were only standing on the shoulders of those brave individuals who had pioneered the concepts of naval aviation in the 1920s and 1930s. The two also discussed the 21st Century Sailors who are a part of naval aviation today. “I think the quality of the people we have serving today is second to none,” said Richardson.“The people of my time are often referred to as the ‘greatest generation.’ But that’s just not so.” Throughout his career, Richardson commanded numerous ships, task forces, and air groups to include his tour as commander, Fleet Air Norfolk and commander, 6th Fleet. Richardson served his final active tour as deputy commander in chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet and retired from the Navy in 1972 after 36 years of service.

HM-14: completed Airborne Mine Countermeasure training in Florida — Continued from page 6 and MH-60S. NSWC PCD flew MH-53Es for mine warfare research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) missions until 2009 when MH-60s were phased in for Littoral Combat Ship mine warfare mission module package integration support. Capitalizing on the year-round, test-conducive weather available in Panama City, Fla., the Sailors are working on 24 hours a day in 12-hour shifts, thereby allowing maintenance Sailors, like Aviation Electrician’s Mate 1st Class (AW) Stephen Elo, of Medford, Ore., to maintain the helicopters in between airborne helicopter training missions. For these AMCM missions in particular, the squadron is training with a MK-106 tow sled, a magnetic and acoustic influence sweep system, and the AN/AQS24 sonar. “I supervise 28 Sailors and we’re all

working to maintain the helicopters and keep them flying. These are maintenanceintensive aircraft. We have to put in 55 hours of maintenance for every one hour of flight on each aircraft,” said Elo. MH-53Es support not only mine warfare missions, but also can respond to humanitarian civic assistance and disaster response missions flying with at least two pilots, two air crew members and a load of equipment of up to 32,000 pounds. One example of the aircraft’s agility was realized during Hurricane Sandy response in New York City. “We anchored off the coast of New York, and flew to the base of the Statue of Liberty in support of the dewatering missions there,” said Lt. Eric Quarles, HM-14 maintenance officer. “We flew crews and generators there and up to 18,000 pounds of cargo, people, equipment, food and water.”
