2012 Annual Joint Luncheon Lance Cpl. Martin R. Egnash ROTOVUE Staff

The New River Officers’ Spouses’ Club hosted the 2012 Annual Joint Luncheon, April 19. During the luncheon, Marine officers’ wives from Marine Corps Air Station New River, MCAS Cherry Point and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune gathered for lunch to discuss current events, local charities and scholarship opportunities with Bonnie Amos, the wife of the commandant of the Marine Corps. “This is an annual event for the Officers’ Spouses’ Club that rotates between (MCAS) New River, (MCAS) Cherry Point and (MCB) Camp Lejeune,” said OSC president Katherine Williamson. “This year, we’re proud to host the joint luncheon at the newly finished New River Officers’ Club.” The officers’ club was damaged by Hurricane Irene last August and has been out of commission until now. “They literally just finished the club,” said Williamson. “Two days ago, the place didn’t even have carpet.” Williamson said that the luncheon was primarily a way for

military spouses to get together. “The OSC is like a sorority for adults that lasts a lifetime,” said Williamson. “Events like this help us strengthen our sisterly bonds towards each other.”

“Having a joint luncheon, where wives from different bases come together, helps support the network of Marine Corps families in the area,” said committee chairperson Kim Chapman. “Being a military wife, sometimes it’s hard when you or your friends have to move away from everybody. This lets us stay connected.” Midway through the luncheon, the first lady of the Marine Corps spoke as the guest speaker. “General (James F.) Amos is the first commandant from an aviator background, so it’s a really big deal for his wife to come to the air station to see us,” said Chapman. “She knows what we go through.” During her lunch with the OSC, Mrs. Amos spoke on several topics dear to the spouses including how she met the commandant, living in the Jacksonville area and told jokes and stories about her experiences as a Marine Corps wife. She told the OSC members to never underestimate themselves or the impact they have and the differences they make. “Thank you all for making a difference,” said Amos. “And thank you for inviting me here.”

VMM-263 welcomes new sergeant major Lance Cpl. Manuel A. Estrada ROTOVUE Staff

Sgt. Maj. John Richards relinquished his position as Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 263 sergeant major to Sgt. Maj. Kevin Trotter during a relief and appointment ceremony, April 12. Richards has been the senior enlisted advisor for the squadron since February 2010. He has been reassigned to Recruiting Station Springfield, Mass. During his tenure as the squadron’s sergeant major, VMM-263 had the longest Marine Expeditionary Unit deployment to date. Lt. Col. Thomas P. Mitalski, VMM-263 commanding officer, said Richards defines the 11 leadership principles. Richards was ready to help anyone who asked for advice at any time, day or night. “The Marines are so young, but they have so much responsibility,” said Richards. “They are working on (aircraft), and if one breaks down, it’s peoples’ lives that could be at risk.” Trotter has spent most of his Marine Corps career on the division-side of the Marine Corps, but he is ready to teach any Marine who wants to learn from his 22 years in the corps. “First and foremost, I am honored to come to a unit as prestigious as 263,” said Trotter “During the ‘super MEU’ the Marines worked hard. When they did have liberty, they did not get in trouble. I think I’ll be on cruise control because the squadron is doing an outstanding job.” Trotter’s last assignment was as company first sergeant for Company E, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif. “I lead by example, but I mentor as well,” said Trotter. “I’m a

very hands-on type of Marine. I love talking to Marines. I tell all the junior Marines ‘if you have any questions, there is nothing I haven’t seen before, so don’t hesitate to come see me.’” Trotter said he has no doubt that he and Mitalski can work

together to make VMM-263 the best squadron in the Marine Corps. Richards thanked the Marines of the squadron for the professionalism and hard work they have shown and for giving him the opportunity to be their sergeant major.

MWSS-272 performsexercise Lance Cpl. Ryan Joyner ROTOVUE Staff

Marine Wing Support Squadron 272 is conducting a squadron-wide, 10day training exercise providing a good refresher of vital skills, April 17-27. Maj. Brain Griffing, MWSS-272 operations officer, said the squadron is going through a variety of training classes ranging from land navigation and patrolling to detainee handling and vehicle commander’s course. The Marines of the squadron are using and refreshing vital skills to operate in a combat environment. “We are the only ground unit aboard the air station and it’s very important that we stay knowledgeable of everything we have learned that will help (MWSS272) when we deploy,” said Pfc. Jacob Misegan, MWSS-272 aircraft maintenance administrative specialist. Marines received classes on the different weapon systems at the indoor simulated marksmanship trainer. The classes included how to field strip and maintain weapons such as the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, M240G medium machine gun and M2 .50 caliber machine gun. “This might be one of the only times that Marines get to work with these weapons,” said Cpl. Nathan Kohne,

MWSS-272 field wiremen. Along with how to take care of the weapons, the Marines receive classes on how to fire the weapons and are taken through simulated target practice utilizing the ISMT’s computer programs. “I really enjoy teaching and showing the Marines, and I feel like they are really learning a lot from the classes,” said Sgt. Michael Shaheen, MWSS-272 aviation supply specialist. “Some of the Marines coming through have forgotten some of the things they used to know so it’s a good refresher for them.” Some of the refreshers included land navigation classes in the morning, where the Marines learn how to plot coordinates on a map using the grid system and how to shoot an azimuth. Then in the afternoon they have practical application, where they implement everything they learned in the class, said Cpl. Tony Diaz, MWSS-272 training clerk. MWSS-272 Marines believe that the training will better prepare them for future deployments to Afghanistan. At the end of the two-week-long exercise, all the Marines of MWSS-272 are conducting an eight-mile hike with packs. With the training and experience gained throughout the 10-day exercise the Marines of MWSS-272 will be even more prepared to face any challenge they might encounter while deployed.

Iron Horses train with Army Lance Cpl. Ryan Joyner ROTOVUE Staff

Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 461 conducted a joint service training exercise with the Army’s Bravo Battery 3rd Battalion 321st Field Artillery Regiment at Fort Bragg, N.C., April 18. Capt. Bryant Hagwood, HMH-461 CH-53E Super Stallion pilot, said the operation was facilitated at the request of Bravo Battery to train its soldiers and allow the Marines of HMH-461 to gain experience in lifting operations and working with other services. Working together with Bravo Battery, the pilots and crew chiefs conducted external lifts of two M777 howitzers from one pickup zone aboard Fort Bragg to a landing point where Bravo Battery used the howitzers to train its artillerymen and helicopter support team. They also lifted an M998 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle. Having the ability to lift and transport key battlefield equipment increases the mobility and deadliness of the Marines and the gear they are carrying, said Sgt. Theodore Young, HMH-461 CH-53E Super Stallion crew chief. While the Army unit used the artillery pieces, the HMH-461 Marines continued to train in their CH-53Es, by lifting a 500-gallon water tank and a HUMVEE “The Army does things a little different then the Marines, however

everything went well and we both received great training,” said Young. Once the soldiers had fired all the howitzer rounds, the two Super Stallions were called-in to lift the howitzers. The HST trained as if it were a real mission and had to have the guns ready to lift by the time the CH-53Es returned. After transporting the howitzers for the second time, the helicopters refueled at Mackall Army Airfield and returned back to the pickup zone, where the artillery pieces had been set up to fire. From there, the Marines and soldiers once again worked together to lift the two 9,920-pound artillery pieces and the Marines began their way back to the original pickup zone. After completing the lift and transportation of the guns the Marines began the 45-minute flight back to Marine Corps Air Station New River. Young said that he learned a lot from working with the Army as well as using an actual M777. “Normally, we lift I-beams or concrete blocks so it was good to train using a real M777,” said Young. “The real M777 flies quite different than an I-beam and training with the actual M777 provides great real-world training.” Everything went smoothly and the pilots and crew chiefs received great training and created a good relationship with the Army. “All the objectives were met and the Army received more training than they had anticipated,” said Hagwood.

Story and photos by Cpl. John Suleski

Wilber and Orville Wright had a dream. That dream came true on a fateful day in 1903, when their heavier-than-air flying contraption soared for a total of 12 seconds. Decades later, innovators came up with other unique modes of flight. Some, including ornithopters and rocket packs, have failed. Where they fell short, tiltrotors have proven themselves. A design that combines fixed-wing planes with helicopters, tiltrotors can take off vertically and then shift their propellers to the front to create as much thrust as a normal airplane. With the MV-22B Osprey, Marines can use this ability to transport gear and personnel faster and further than conventional helicopters, said Col. Christopher C. Seymour, Marine Aircraft Group 26 commanding officer and former V-22 test pilot. The idea started in the 1980s and grew into a prototype, and finally a production model that first deployed to Iraq in 2007. The Osprey is now going on its 17th combat deployment, said Seymour. A few snags along the way delayed the process, but developers have learned how the machine functions and found ways to keep it safe. Safety is paramount for Osprey crew and passengers, so every system has back-ups in case one fails, said Cpl. Adrian J. Cruze, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 Osprey crew chief. The aircraft’s systems also warn the crew so they can take action during flight. Crew chiefs go through a long training pipeline, including mechanic school, ground training and flight training to prepare for the responsibility of keeping the aircraft out of trouble. The crews’ training and the proven design continuously results in a growing number of safe flight hours. “I trust it with my life,” said Cruze. The aircraft has also built trust with many Marine leaders, as it has exceeded expectations, said Seymour. One way the MV-22B has surpassed other aircraft is with the “golden hour,” he continued. This valuable hour denotes the time frame that medical intervention has the best chance of saving

a seriously-injured service member. With vertical take-off ability and superior speed, Ospreys can turn hours into minutes, resulting in more Marines telling the Grim Reaper “not today.” To see what the MV-22B Osprey can do, Lt. Gen. John M. Paxton, Jr., II Marine Expeditionary Force commanding general, went for a flight with VMM-266, April 12. During that flight, Seymour showed him the aircraft’s capabilities and what pilots do during a flight. “We did a miniature mission profile,” said Seymour. “We flew a long distance over water, hit a tanker, refueled, dropped down into a low-level environment, flew a tactical profile to a landing zone, dropped off Marines and went back. That’s the whole enchilada.” The next step for the Osprey is to completely replace the aging CH-46E Sea Knight platform. Squadrons throughout the world, from Marine Corps Air Station New River to Marine Corps Base Hawaii, will have the new birds. The Marine Corps will then have a total of 18 MV-22B squadrons to support operations all over the globe, including service with the continuously-deployed 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, said Seymour. “It’s done everything we’ve asked it to do, and it’s definitely a visionary for the future,” said Seymour.

Every devil dog has his day Lance Cpl. Martin R. Egnash ROTOVUE Staff

Marines from Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 are participating in Marine Day in Quantico, Va., April 2527. Marine Day is an event where Marines from various units showcase the Marine Corps’ many skills, equipment and programs to more than 400 officials, including staff members associated with armed service and defense appropriations as well as individual members of congress and their personal staff members, according to http:// “Marine Day is a demonstration the Marine Corps puts on for top-level officials,” said Capt. James D. Holt, VMM-266 future operations officer. “It lets them see the equipment the Marine Corps uses on a daily basis.” The event includes VMM-266 flying the VIPs to Quantico where they will be able to see live-fire demonstrations with various aircraft and infantry weapons. According to, the officials will be able to individually fire infantry weapons to get a feel for what Marines do. “Marine Day gives the decision makers hands-on

experience with Marine Corps equipment,” said Holt. “This gives them a better understanding when they need to make decisions about equipment and budgets.” Though many units are attending Marine Day, VMM266 has been chosen to showcase the MV-22B Osprey, the Marine Corps’ medium tiltrotor aircraft. “When we fly them to the landing zone, they’re going to notice the speed of the aircraft,” said Holt. “As far as assault support aircraft, the Osprey is fast.” Holt also believes that when the aircraft lands, the officials will be able to see first-hand how well the aircraft is suited for tactical insertions. “They’re going to see that we’re capable of inserting troops into any type of area,” said Holt. The idea is to educate the VIPs, so they can make decisions based on what they’ve seen at Marine Day. “These people will go on to (pass laws) that will affect the future of the Marine Corps,” said Holt. The event will also allow members of congress to talk directly to Marines who are experts in their field to gain better understanding of the Marine Corps according to “It’s a good experience for everybody that’s involved,” said Holt. “It shows them what the Marine Corps can do, and it shows us that we’re appreciated.”

‘Work Horses’ support U.S. Border Patrol Armando Carrasco

Joint Task Force North Public Affairs Marine Wing Support Squadron 271 Marines recently completed a new access road leading to a well known illicit drug trafficking and illegal alien smuggling corridor along the U.S. – Mexico border in Laredo, Texas. The new threetenthmile concrete road will provide U.S. Border Patrol-Laredo Sector agents rapid access to the border when responding to transnational threats or life-saving situations along the Rio Grande River. The Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point-based unit volunteered for the job and deployed to Texas in January to aid the Military Support to Law Enforcement Agency’s mission. U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested the support and Joint Task Force North coordinated the Marines traveling to Texas to assist. Joint Task Force North support operations provide the nation’s federal law enforcement agencies with a multitude of needed support while providing volunteer units with training opportunities directly related to military duties. “Working down in Laredo was a great experience because we got to see how well we function as a company outside of Cherry

Point,” said Cpl. George Ruiz, an engineer assistant with MWSS271. “On top of that, we obtained a better understanding of the border patrol’s function and purpose.” The project required the Marines to dig earth-form footers, emplace rebar cages and install wire mesh and forms for pours that totaled 222 cubic yards of concrete. The overall project consisted of 600 feet of concrete emplacement and 400 feet of road improvement. “Personally I think it was great to be able to do some work within our job field,” said Pfc. Jared Follansbee, a combat engineer with MWSS-271. “For those of us, like me, who haven’t had the chance to work much with concrete, this was a great opportunity to get some good training time.” The joint task force provided the Marines with state-of-theart contracted engineering equipment, required training and complete maintenance support throughout the project. “In my opinion, this has been an excellent learning experience for all of the heavy equipment operators, myself included,” said Cpl. Steven Moore, a heavy equipment operator with MWSS271. “Many of the heavy equipment Marines here haven’t had prior working experiences outside of the day-to-day operations on Cherry Point, so their time spent here is invaluable, plus we got the chance to get hours on civilian gear, which will benefit any of us who choose to find jobs within this field once we leave

the Marine Corps.” In contrast with most military engineering projects executed in support of combat operations, the Marines executed their mission using U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved plans. An on-site professional engineer monitored the project and ensured compliance with established civilian road construction standards. “The MWSS-271 engineer company has done an exceptional job for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in completing a tactical infrastructure project for the U.S. Border Patrol. Their leadership, hard work and dedication ensured a successful project,” said Bobby Ruiz, corps of engineers inspector, and project manager for Michael Baker Jr., Inc. The Marines also earned accolades from the Joint Task Force North engineer mission planner, Lt. Col. Eric F. Russell. “Chief Warrant Officer Marvin Klakken and the entire Marine engineer detachment from MWSS-271 have executed the best construction project that I have worked on in my 18 years in construction – setting the standard for quality construction and safety,” he said. In recognition of the Marines’ successful mission – one completed without sustaining a single injury or accident – they were awarded the coveted Joint Task Force North Commander’s Safety Award.

MCAS New River supports Earth Week Lance Cpl. Manuel A. Estrada ROTOVUE Staff

Marine Corps Air Station New River organized a station-wide clean up to promote safety, health and keep the community clear of trash during Earth Week, April 16-22. The week of cleanup leads up to the internationally celebrated Earth day, April 22. The idea for Earth Day came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, according to “Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda.” Nelson is credited as the person who brought the environmentalism movement to the front of the American concerns. Earth day has expanded to Earth Week and is celebrated by more than 200 million people in more than 20 countries, as stated in the website. To celebrate Earth Week on the air station, Merrick Reid, station environment protection specialist, led the station cleanup. He said the Marines aboard the air station keep the area in a good state of police year-round but the cleanup is meant to pick up the bits and pieces that are overlooked or hard to find.

Marine Aircraft Group 29, MAG-26 and Marine Wing Support Squadron 272 did a clean sweep of their areas of operations and barracks. To further support cleanup, Headquarters and Headquarter Squadron and Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training were tasked with cleaning the coast line along the air station. The Marines wore clothes that they were willing to get dirty and wet while they divided into four groups to conquer the rubbish on the shore line.

They hiked through waist-deep vegetation, over broken concrete boulders and even walked in knee-deep water to reach the trash that washed on shore. Private Rick Moody, CNATT student, said that at home, he and his family recycle and do all they can to help the environment. “I know that one person can do a lot for the environment by recycling,” said Moody. “I can only imagine what an entire station of Marines can do.” On the other side of the station, Civilian workers also helped out with the cleanup of one of the most traveled and visible areas of the air station- the front gate and the fence that runs along Highway 17. It is not always the air station’s personnel who throw litter on to this area, but it is their responsibility to keep and maintain the beauty of the air station’s image. The station’s civilian staff donated their time and manpower to pick up trash on and around the air station. All the trash that was collected from the cleanup is not destined to rot in Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s landfill. The cleaning crew each had a separate location to throw the metal, paper and the plastic trash at the air station’s recycling center. Even though the air station does these events to clear the trash from the area, it is up to every service member to do their own part and dispose of their trash properly, not just during Earth Week, but throughout the year.

BASH program monitors deer population Lance Cpl. Ryan Joyner ROTOVUE Staff

Wildlife aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River can pose a threat to aircraft and crew members. To prevent this from happening, the air station utilizes the Bird and Wildlife Aircraft Strike Hazard program to help both wildlife and Marines coexist. As part of the BASH program, Robert Withington, United States Department of Agriculture wildlife biologist, monitors and maintains records of the deer population and their habits across the air station. Every two weeks, Withington conducts a survey of deer on the air station. The survey seeks to determine how many deer populate aboard the air station, and the habits of the deer and monitoring any changes. The number of deer and their habits are important information, knowing where deer travel and the number of deer aboard the air station is vital to preventing incidents with the wildlife and aircraft that are constantly flying. The surveys are conducted at night and deer are most likely to travel during dusk and dawn periods, and this is the most opportune time to spot the deer, said Withington. Withington has different tools that he uses to spot the

deer in the low-light and night-time conditions. A large handheld spotlight that is plugged into Withington’s truck is used to shine across fields and along tree lines on the air station. With the spotlight, Withington scans the darkness for a glimmer of light that is reflected off the deer’s eyes when the spot light is on them. A more advanced tool that Withington has in his disposal is a thermal-imaging scope. With the thermal scope, any heat signatures will show up white. The thermal sight allows Withington to see deer at a greater distance away and get a more accurate count of the deer. Using a thermal scope allows Withington to locate the deer in urban environments without disturbing those who live there and are trying to sleep by shinning a spotlight. Withington said any information obtained during the survey is logged using a grid system to precisely locate areas of the air station where deer activity is high. That data is then put into a computer program to track and maintain records of deer activity throughout the year and where they are traveling. By knowing the patterns and habits of the wildlife, keeping them clear of the flight line and aircraft is much easier and safer for the animals and Marines that call the air station their home, said Withington.

Help available for Marines returning to civilian life

Ask the

expert: Dr. Leslie H. Slosky

Marine and Family Services

I am getting out of the Marine Cor ps. I have been in the Cor ps since I was 18 years old. I can’t remember what it’s like to be a civilian. I know there are programs that help people transition but frankly I am anxious and undecided about what to do next. What do you recommend? Yours is a very common problem right now. The drawdown means that many Marines and sailors are facing life as a civilian for the first time in years. This is a time of high anxiety military members. They worry about finding jobs in the civilian sector. They worry about earning enough to pay their bills and health insurance. Even service members who are retiring are concerned about the job market today.

Marines with families weigh the advantages and disadvantages of relocating for a job. Moving involves selling the house (in a bad housing market) as well as the necessity of changing schools if you have children. In short, getting out of the service involves change. Some people embrace change with enthusiasm. Most of us, though, have mixed feelings. Change can mean loss, but it is also an opportunity. The first thing one needs to do is face the change straight on. Be honest about your feelings. If your separation from the service is an unwelcome decision and beyond your control, then begin acknowledging that to yourself. It can be helpful, even though painful, to think through what mistakes, if any, you made that led to your leaving the service before you were ready. There is something positive to take away from every experience though it may be difficult to see it now. The second step is to develop a plan. The worst thing about change for many people is that it involves unknowns. People generally like the known and the predictable because these are safe. Part of developing a plan is to get as much information as possible. Where is the best job market for your skills? Do you have all the certificates for training that you completed? Do you have time to complete some additional training or return to school? What needs to be done to your house if you plan to sell it? What are you likely to get out of your house? What bills would you be better paying off before you leave the service? Planning for

possible outcomes is an important step in reducing your stress level about the future. Begin to consider yourself as a civilian. What do you need to change to feel that being a civilian is a better fit? Little things such as buying new clothes for your new life can help. Draft a copy of your resume. Think of leaving the service as a new start, a chance to reinvent yourself. This last part can be one of the most challenging aspects of EAS. After years of thinking of yourself as a Marine or sailor, trying to see yourself as someone else is hard. There is a feeling of loss. Many see their years of active service as some of the best years of their lives. None the less, there is life after the Navy and the Marine Corps. Taking charge of your civilian future will definitely reduce anxiety as you start this different phase of your life.
