Most visitors would know the Display Ship Barry on theWashington Navy Yard as a place to visit a historic Navy vessel and gain knowledge about the sea services from years past. Personnel and volunteers at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy treated guests to a slightly scarier version of the ship by adorning its interiors with Halloween decorations and turning the Display Ship Barry into the "Ghost Ship Barry" Oct. 19. "The Ghost Ship Barry is an event where once a year, the crew of the ship and some additional volunteers 'haunt out' the ship and make it into a haunted mansion that floats, if you will," said Karin Hill, director of education and public programs at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy. "The Museum has Halloweenthemed craft activities, and then folks will check in and receive a ticket before a staff member will walk groups over to the Barry. They walk through the ship, and then they come back over here to the museum and do more craft activities."

SafetyMakesHalloweenLessScary By Patrick Gordon, NDW Waterline writer Halloween season is a time for children of all ages to get excited about trick-or-treating, costume parties, and spooky fun. To ensure everyone has a happy and safe Halloween, parents and children should take this opportunity to practice safety first.

Servicemembers and civilians alike were invited to participate in activities such as goodie bag making and frame decorating before the Barry tours began. Hill explained that for the first two hours of the event, haunted tours of the Barry were held for children ages 12 and younger, and the last two hours were for visitors 12 and older. "At the beginning we give tours for the little guys; what we call the 'not-so-scary Barry,'" said Hill. "Then, after a half-hour turnaround, it becomes the 'very-scary Barry.'" Inside the ship, volunteers turned the historic passageways of the ship into terrifying corridors full of scary sights and sounds. "My guys have Halloween decorations set up around the ship, and we have volunteers from around the region, civilian and military, that dress up in costumes and be a part of the event as far as bringing the effect out for the haunted ship," said Senior Chief Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Handling) (AW/SW) Benjamin Bilyeu, Display Ship Barry Leading Chief Petty Officer.

Veterans Honored During 'Joint Service Make a Difference Day' By MC2 Kiona Miller, Naval District Washington Public Affairs Military service members gathered at the WorldWar II Memorial inWashington, D.C., to honor veterans during the joint service "Make a Difference Day" volunteer event, Oct. 20. "Our veterans are a reflection of our service members' future," said Olivia Hunter, Naval DistrictWashington Regional Community Service Program coordinator. "I think that the same way that the veterans adore being honored and remembered they too, I'm sure, would like to receive the same type of honor and respect in the future." Make a Difference Day is a national day of volunteering celebrated annually to promote community service. This year, nearly 200 volunteers greeted World War II veterans from Georgia, Ohio, Florida, NewYork and Arkansas as part of the Honor Flight Network program. "Honor Flight is an organization that caters to all veterans and they actually provide trans-
portationthroughoutthevariousstatestocome to D.C. and to tour theWorldWar II memorial," saidHunter."ThisisthelargestHonorFlightthis year and it will probably be the last one, that is one of the reasons why we decided to do this Honor Flight for Make a Difference Day." Volunteers from each branch of service not only welcomed each veteran with cheers, handshakes and personal expressions of gratitude but they also assisted in unloading wheel chairs, escorting veterans throughout the memorial and even listened to war stories told by the veterans themselves. "It's humbling," said Cryptologic Technician Networks 3rd Class Robert Murphy, assigned to Navy Information Operations Command, Maryland. "We are losing more and more veterans everyday and this is one of the only chances I feel like to get out and meet somebody that's gone before you to do what you have done, and we are following up in their footsteps."

Making Connections: Sign Signifies Small World, Navy By Sarah Marshall, WRNMMC Journal staff writer Alongside awards, plaques and pictures from previous deployments, a wooden "Medical Department" sign hangs in the office of the director for the Warrior Family Coordination Cell (WFCC) at Walter Reed Bethesda. This hand-crafted sign recently proved it's a small world. WFCC Director Navy Capt. Thomas Craig held onto the sign as a memento from one of his favorite tours, when he served as medical officer aboard the USS White Plains (AFS-4) from 1993 to 1994, he said. "It means a lot to me," Craig said. The White Plains was decommissioned in 1995 after nearly 30 years of service. Craig said he kept the sign denoting the entrance to the ship's medical department, as the ship was emptied before it was towed from Guam to Hawaii and placed permanently out of service. Michael Morton, a hospital corpsman aboard the White Plains from 1987 to 1990, crafted the sign while docked in the Philippines. He and a lab technician made it during their down time, Morton said, to spruce up the ship's walls and personalize the space where they cared for their shipmates. "When you make something like this, you don't think about the ship ever going away," Morton said. "You do it to make it better, for the time you're there." After his tour aboard the ship, Morton advanced to the rank of chief and went on to teach hospital corpsman "A" school. He was later commissioned as an officer and, after 24

Alton Stocks, commander,Walter Reed Bethesda, NCA, and his flag aide, Lt. Amy Zaycek, met in Morton's office during a Sugar Grove site visit in July. There, they noticed a jacket hanging up, with a USS White Plains patch. Zaycek recalled theWhite Plains sign in Craig's office at Walter Reed Bethesda, connecting the two. Stocks invited Morton to visit the hospital, and on Oct. 10, Morton arrived to meet Craig and tour the facility. "We are thrilled to find this connection,

Navy Wounded Warrior: A Critical Resource for Sailors By Commander, Navy Installations Command Navy Wounded Warrior Safe Harbor Program Staff Early one morning in October 2007, Navy Boatswain's Mate 1st Class Jim Castaneda suffered a stroke during muster aboard USS Tortuga (LSD-46).The stroke was entirely unexpected and, in a matter of moments, Castaneda's life was forever changed. Shortly after arriving at Naval Medical Center San Diego for treatment, Castaneda was referred to Navy Wounded Warrior
(NWW) - Safe Harbor. His NWW non-medical care manager helped his family navigate the various non-medical issues - from securing various payments and entitlements, to providing advice on a home application, to accessingVeterans Affairs benefits - that threatened to distract from Castaneda's recovery. "[NWW] is one of those programs that commands may have heard about but don't know too much about," said Castaneda. "But once they know what it does and how it helps families and severely injured Sailors they will

Student Pumpkin Egg Drop hosted at CarderockWarfare Center From NSWC Carderock Public Affairs Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, held its Second Annual Pumpkin/Egg Drop Competition Oct. 24. The pumpkin/egg drop is a design competition which is a part of the division's larger outreach efforts designed to spark students' interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). "This year's egg drop is intended to give the students a fun project to work on that relates math to the real world and gives them the opportunity to do hands-on engineering while learning some of the basics about drag and energy conservation," said event co-organizer and Carderock engineer Kavi Dotson. Students from Thomas W. Pyle Middle
SAFETY Continued from 1 Fleet and Family Readiness. "So for children and for drivers and families it's a very important time to be aware of safety." Hautzenroder-Roberts explained that the potential for injury is increased at Halloween for a number of reasons. She suggests making sure costumes for children are easy to see at night and are fitted properly to prevent tripping. Hautzenroder-Roberts added that children should be supervised by an adult, and that knowing where trick-or-treaters are going is important as well. "Within our region, as it is anywhere, it's good to know your neighbors to have a better idea of whose houses children are going to," said Hautzenroder-Roberts. "On a lot of bases in the region it may be easier to know your neighbors than it is out in town. But even in a base situation or if you know your neighbors very well, make sure that children bring their candy home before eating it, have an adult look over what they have and make sure that the candy is in a proper wrapper, and if anything looks suspicious, to toss it." With so many people out on Halloween night,driversareremindedtobeextravigilantfor children and adults on roads and in cross walks. "Pedestrian safety is key during Halloween," said James Peake, safety installation
School, in Montgomery County, dropped eggs fromaspecifiedlocationandheightonbasetrying to keep the egg from breaking while accurately hitting a target on the ground. Each team came up with a design structure around the egg thatprotectsitfromcracking. Studentsdesigned their structures following general rules: the eggs couldnotbechemicallyorphysicallyaltered;the structure must fit in a box 12"x10"x5"; and all materials must be bio-degradable. "Returning students that participated in last year's pumpkin drop are excited to have an opportunity to partake in a new 'egg-drop' challenge.They are working together with new club members to create structures that they
See Egg Drop, Page 9 program director at Naval Support Activity Washington (NSAW). "Motorists should be more aware of kids crossing the roads that night, and trick-or-treaters should walk, not run, between houses and follow safe pedestrian rules as well." Peake also recommended that children carry flashlights or have reflective tape affixed to costumes and candy bags to make them easier to see at night. Some military installations in NDW have base events around Halloween that civilians and military alike are invited to, such as Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling's "Spooktacular" event Oct. 30 and Naval Air Station Patuxent River's Pumpkin Carnival Oct. 26. Visitors to these bases are reminded to follow similar Halloween safety rules, and to dress comfortably for the occasions. "We've got events that happen on base, and it's important that people have a safe, as well as fun, time while they're here," said Bert Nash, occupational safety and health specialist at NSAW. "At NSAW we had the 'Ghost Ship Barry' event, and a lot of people from out in town came to that. Making sure that they know things like wearing comfortable shoes and supervising children while on base will make sure that they have a good time, and that in turn helps us better represent ourselves to the community."

The Oxford Handbook of War Reviewed by Cmdr. Youssef Aboul-Enein, Military Sealift Command The Oxford Handbook of War edited by Julian Lindley-French and Yves Boyer. Published by Oxford University Press, New York. 2012, 667 pages. Being a member of the United States armed forces makes the study of war, its evolution, change, and approach of it from many disciplines a lifelong endeavor. Oxford University Press has published a large book that features dozens of essays from European, American, Chinese and Japanese thinkers on the subject of war. Many of the contributors are senior leaders within the NATO Alliance. Each person is an academic, journalist, military officer, or government official who discusses the fundamental causes of war, its moral and legal aspects, theories on its practice, as well as strategic conduct, non-western practice and strategies, and much more. This is a complex work, and it is pre-supposed that the reader has been immersed in the language and thoughts on warfare from ancient times to the nuclear age. The book is divided into

ten parts, and each part has between two and 11 essays. Lawrence Freedman, a professor of war studies at King's College in London, takes the bold step of defining the term, "war" in the 21st century. It compares the historic instabilities that have led to conflict, and makes the argument that while our technology is evolving many issues of warfare are a continuance of policy as the late nineteenth century theorist Carl von Clausewitz still remains in our collective thinking. One of his more interesting observations is the evolution of the actual word "war" from the German, "werran," which literally means confusion and discord. Distinguished military historian Hew Strahcan
discusses how strategic thinking allows for a reduction of complexity while discovering changes and recognizing continuity in his chapter "War and Strategy." George Henri-Soutou, of the Sorbonne in Paris, discusses a more rational approach of using history not to find exact replicas from the past. He highlights that the Germans in World War II had the same numbers of tanks, planes and troops that France had, and that is what really distinguished the Wehrmacht (the German armed forces) was the use of these resources in new ways, most notably in Blitzkrieg warfare. It was this German flexibility and reaction compared to the slower French tactics that made the German victories of 1940 possible, perfecting a modern command and control system of air and armored ground units. He advocates cultivation of the nimble mind that embraces the impact of surprise on the uses of history in the study of war.

VETERANS Continued from 2 According to World War II veteran Irwin Kuhns, who served on a landing ship tank as a first class petty officer during the war, it was an emotional experience to be honored by the new generation of military service members. "It's pretty great; I get a lump in my throat," said Kuhns. "The good part of it is we've done our part the best that we could; now we are turning it over to you young people. It's in your hands now, the whole works." Approximately 525 veterans were transported by a commercial airliner from their home states toWashington, D.C., then by a chartered bus to the memorial.The Honor Flight program has more than 117 hubs in 40 states and transported more than 81,000 World War II veterans in 2011. "We decided to come out and show support to our veterans and let them know that we are here to thank them for the work that they did for us back in the day and giving us the country we have today," said Matthew Hogue, a student at the Defense Information School in Fort Meade, Md. 1031023

NSA Washington Participates in Earthquake Drill From Naval District Washington Public Affairs
U.S. Navy photo by Patrick Gordon
Lt. Cmdr. James Carsner, AFPAK Hands, Naval Support Activity Washington, participates in the "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" exercise Oct. 18 in the 2012 Great South East Shakeout drill.
Naval Support Activity (NSA)Washington took part in the first "Great Southeast Shakeout" earthquake drill, in which participants simultaneously practiced the recommended actions during an earthquake, Oct. 18. The Great Southeast Shakeout earthquake drill comes on the heels of the oneyear anniversary of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Mineral,Va., Aug. 23, 2011, and was felt across more than a dozen U.S. states and in several Canadian provinces. The "Great Southeast Shakeout" provides an opportunity for people to practice how to stay safe during and after a seismic
event," said Robert Avery, emergency manager for NSA Washington. "Employees were encouraged to 'drop, cover and hold on' for at least 60 seconds as if there were a major earthquake happening." According to ShakeOut.org, more than 190,000 people and organizations have registered to take part in the historic drill. It also marks the first time a shakeout was formally conducted in the Washington, D.C. metro area and included participation from residents and employees. NSA Washington was the only military installation in the national capital region that participated in the drill. "There is a misconception that earthquakes don't happen outside of the West Coast where as a few areas of the Midwest-
ern and Eastern U.S. are more prone to earthquakes than others," said Avery. "The key is always preparedness. Earthquake are unpredictable but training and drills help reduce the potential injuries that can result from them." According to Avery, it is always important to have an earthquake readiness plan. A few tips he recommended were having a place in each room of the house that one can get to in case of an earthquake, keeping a supply of canned food, an up-to-date first aid kit, three gallons of water per person, dust masks and goggles, and a working batteryoperated radio and flashlights.

Naval District Washington Hosts First Regional Youth Council Summit
REVIEW Continued from 6 placed in perspective as a type of warfare designed to inspire fear for political effect. He offers a thought-provoking piece on ways to not be over-reactive should an act of terrorism occur and how to place the adversary in perspective to other major threats or even among terror groups. Maj. Gen. Peng Guang Qian, of the Academy of Military Science in Beijing, discusses the Chinese perspectives to 21st century war. It is a fascinating integration of western thought with Chinese military theory and experiences that will allow readers to empathize with the Chinese and appreciate their sophisticated and holistic approach to seeing future conflicts. AndVice Adm. Fumio Ota, of the Japanese National Defense University in Yokosuka, discusses his country's views of challenges to Japan in the Pacific Rim, and potential conflict scenarios that could destabilize the region.Those with passion for national security affairs, strategy and policy, or conflict studies will find parts of this book worth reading.

AFPAK Continued from 6 By Dawn Simpson, NAS Patuxent River School Liaison Officer and Carol Mohsberg, NSA Annapolis School Liaison Officer
A total of 57 teens from Youth Centers and Student-2-Student (S2S) groups around the Naval District Washington (NDW) region participated in the first NDW Youth Council Summit, held at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Md., Sept. 22-23. School liaison officers and youth directors created the training to educate and inspire teens about youth sponsorship. Teens attended sessions on outreach, newcomer orientation, and peer to peer. Participants then developed a comprehensive local action plan which they presented to the group. A session on the Interstate Compact and the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) was provided for adult Child-Youth Program (CYP) and school staff in attendance. Brent Edwards from Commander, Navy Installations Command was the opening speaker and discussed the Navy Teen Council, camp opportunities for teens, and the future of youth programming. The event was funded by Operation Military Kids - Maryland.
The AFPAK Hands program was stood up in 2009 by then Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, to establish a cohort of experts that specialize in the complexities of Afghanistan and Pakistan language and culture. These members provide persistent engagement on regional issues while advising leaders and commanders throughout the levels of governance and command. An AFPAK Hand is committed to more than 40 months with the program. During those months, a service member engages in 10 months of training, nearly two years of deployment in-theater in Afghanistan or Pakistan, and one year out of theater in the U.S. For more information on AFPAK Hands visit http://www.public.navy.mil/BUPERS-NPC/CA REER/LANGUAGE_CULTURE/Pages/AFPAKHands.aspx.

hope will outperform designs from last year," said event co-organizer and fellow Carderock engineer Alyssa Littlestone. "The students have been focusing on increasing the drag by using parachutes in order to lessen the impact force, redirecting the impact energy into energy absorbing structures, and isolating the egg using suspension designs." The event gave future engineers a chance to test their own creative designs. Carderock is the full-spectrum research and development, test and evaluation, engineering, and Fleet support organization for the Navy's ships, submarines, military watercraft, and unmanned vehicles for the Navy Fleet of the 21st Century.
and to have an opportunity for Capt. Craig and Mike to meet for the very first time. Our Navy spans the globe, but this proves we are all linked together," Stocks said. During his visit to Walter Reed Bethesda last week, Morton did not ask for his sign back. Instead, he gave Craig a smaller, wooden plaque, engraved with the words "HM2 (SW) Morton." He said he crafted this as well, to hang from the "Medical Department" sign, and let his shipmates know when he was on duty. The two both said their meeting brought back many memories. They reminisced about their deployments aboard the ship, running a multitude of necessary supplies to other Navy ships and to foreign countries where fundamental resources were needed. "The first nine months I was on the ship I probably had my feet on dry land about 12 hours," Morton said.
WARRIOR Continued from 5
Craig also explained how busy they were at times unloading supplies while working hard to keep up their Sailors' readiness while at sea. They also recalled an explosion aboard the ship in May 1989, which claimed the lives of six Sailors and injured about 200. Craig had only read about the blast, and said he appreciated listening to Morton's account. Morton was burned in the blast, and explained the experience allowed him to better teach corpsmen later in his career. The tragedy was also pivotal in Craig's own career. While he was considered for his surface warfare qualification, Craig was asked about the White Plain fire. He had thoroughly read the incident reports, and said it was his extensive knowledge about the blast that ultimately earned him the qualification. Though the Navy may seem vast and global, it has only a few degrees of separation, Craig added. "I've been working in the Navy for almost 30 years, and I'm continuously amazed at just how small it is," Morton said.

appreciate it." Indeed, only one-quarter of enlisted Sailors and less than one-half of naval officers are aware of Commander Navy Installations Command's Navy Wounded Warrior - Safe Harbor program and the services it provides. Yet, it is among the most important resources available to Navy families. Illness or injury can strike at any time.When they do, NWW can clear away the clutter and allow service members to focus on what's most important - getting well. NWW tailors support to each wounded warrior's recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration needs. It's team of experts addresses pay and personnel issues, child and youth care, transportation and housing needs, education and training benefits, and much more.The program's goal is to return wounded warriors to duty, but when that's not possible, it works collaboratively with federal agencies and partner organizations to ensure their successful reintegration back into their communities. "NWW will address virtually any problem that surfaces during a wounded warrior's recovery process," said NWW director Capt. Steve Hall. "NWW Non-medical Care Managers provides enrollees a shoulder to lean on, a helping hand, an ear to listen and encouraging words. They act as advocates when service members need one most." NWW enrollment is not limited to service members who have been wounded in combat operations or shipboard and training accidents. It also is available to those affected by serious illness - like Castaneda - or liberty accidents. November marks Warrior Care Month, a time to recognize wounded warriors, as well as their caregivers, for their service, sacrifices, and achievements. This year's theme, "Success through Transition," highlights the many ways wounded warriors and their families thrive after illness and injury - on active duty, on the playing field, in the classroom, or on the job. Adm. Cecil D. Haney, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, will host the first-ever Wounded Warrior Pacific Trials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and the University of Hawaii Nov. 12 - 17. More than 50 seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen from across the country - including Castaneda - will compete for a place on the 2013 Warrior Games Navy-Coast Guard team. NWW encouraged Castaneda to get involved in adaptive athletics several years ago, and it has had a tremendously positive impact on his life. He says, "Everyone [competing in adaptive athletics] seems seven feet tall - larger than life. I feel like superman. I can do anything now." Sailors and their families are urged to take time duringWarrior Care Month to honor and support our wounded warriors. They can refer a service member to the program who has experienced
