Anchors Aweigh New chiefs pinned aboard Bangor, Navy-wide By Tom James tjames@kitsapnavynews.com

From the opening prayer on, the nature of last Friday’s chief petty officer pinning ceremony was clear: “This is an exclusive club, Lord, reserved for only the best.” In the ceremony that followed, six Naval Base Kitsap sailors “received their anchors” aboard Installation Bangor Friday, making them chief petty officers and coinciding with similar ceremonies at commands Navy-wide. As the three highest Navy enlisted ranks, chief petty officers, or simply “chiefs,” occupy a special position in their commands, and carry an authority and visibility significantly greater than those sailors in the next-lowest rank, said one

chief present at the ceremony. “We induct new chiefs to be chiefs, we don’t induct them as E-7’s,” said Command Master Chief Brian Schell, command master chief for Navy Region Northwest. Instead, he said, chiefs join an exclusive group in which behavior is dictated not only by articulated minimum standards, but by a mostly unwritten code of leadership, setting them apart from E-7’s in the other armed services. The pride of that group was evident in Friday’s ceremony. The six soon-to-be chiefs marched into the room singing “Anchors Aweigh,” and finished the song with a bellowed call, “Navy chiefs, Navy pride!” Each was then called in turn to the stage to have chief petty officer’s insignia, a gold anchor fouled with gold chain and overlaid with the letters “USN,” pinned to his collar. Before each left the stage, another chief placed the chief petty officer’s cover, or cap, on the newly-promoted chief’s head, symbolically completing his uniform. “It was surreal, putting on the uniform before the ceremony,” said newly-pinned Chief Allan McGathey. “I feel outstanding.”

Now, said McGathey, comes the task of returning to his command, and learning about his new place there. Chief Kevin Stahl, who also received his anchors at the event, said that even during his induction he felt a difference in the way he was treated in his command, and that even though he had only been away from his command for a day, he anticipated it would feel different to return Monday. “I wouldn’t say the friendship is gone, but it’s a lot more on the lines of professionalism,” he said. When problems arise, said Stahl, “I won’t have that chief to turn to, because that’ll be me.” As chiefs, Schell said, the sailors will return to their command organizations not only as the first layer of command, responsible for relaying orders and making sure they’re carried out, but as sources of general authority within their specialty, about the Navy in general, and even for personal and career advice for their sailors. The ceremony, he said, marks the end of a yearly three-stage selection and training process as unique as the position itself, including a 24-hour day-and-night “chal-

Riding in style Shipyard commuters get new buses By Tom James tjames@kitsapnavynews. com

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard commuters taking part in a federallysubsidized mass transit program got their first look at newer, more comfortable and fuel-efficient buses Monday. Purchased to replace aging buses in Kitsap Transit’s Worker/Driver program, the 28 coaches were presented to workers inside the shipyard’s Controlled Industrial Area in a lunchtime ceremony Monday, the organization said in a release the same day. John Clauson, service development director at Kitsap Transit, said that the coaches, which he described as “touring- or greyhound- style coaches,” went into service that afternoon. Previously, Clauson said, the Worker/Driver program carried its 800900 daily riders on buses left over from the county’s regular routed service. “It was something we’ve been wanting to do for a while,” Clauson said. “But historically it’s been very difficult to justify the acquisition of expensive

buses that only get used three-to-four hours per day.” Clauson said the county only paid to refurbish the buses, including paint, interior repairs, and minor mechanical repairs. More than 80 percent of the purchase cost of the coaches was paid for by a Federal Transit Administration grant, he said, with income generated by an $18 increase in monthly passes for those who ride the bus covering the rest. The worker/driver program trains interested commuters to drive Kitsap Transit buses, then pays them a wage to do so, Clauson said. As with a van pool, the operators pick up the buses in the morning, then drive a route past or near their workmates’ homes, Clauson said. Parking the bus at the shipyard, the driver then goes to work, and reverses the process in the evening. “[The worker/driver program] is relatively efficient when you look at it in comparison to regular routed services,” Clauson said, because it saves the county money otherwise spent getting on “deadhead miles,” where the coach is driving to or from a route

empty. According to the release, the new coaches get almost fifty percent better mileage and are able to carry five more passengers than the old coaches. Clauson said the new coaches lacked bike racks, but that Kitsap Transit maintenance department had found models that fit the buses and were in the process of ordering them. In the meantime, he said, cycle commuters can stow their bicycles in the coaches’ luggage compartments, under the passenger compartment. The replacement coaches augment part of the shipyard’s larger Transportation Incentive Program, in which the federal government reimburses more than 4,000 employees for the cost of passes, said the release. The worker/driver program currently maintains about 30 routes, Clauson said, of which 28 bring workers to and from the shipyard and two bring workers to Naval Base Kitsap - Bangor. Clauson said grants had been solicited for buses for the Bangor routes, but that Kitsap Transit had yet to receive any bids.

Prisoners, missing remembered Local POW: Families bear brunt By Tom James tjames@kitsapnavynews. com

The raising of the flag at the Keyport Naval Undersea Warfare Center had a special significance last Friday, as a local Vietnam veteran, top Keyport officers, and divers from the center gathered in a ceremony to mark POW/ MIA Recognition Day. About 20 people attended the early morning ceremony, where Captain Stephen Iwanowicz, of the Warfare Center, and Dr. William Reeder delivered remarks on the day’s significance and the experiences of captivity and loss. A pilot during Vietnam, Reeder was shot down by the North Vietnamese during the conflict and held in captivity until its end. Gathered beside the submarine sail outside Naval Undersea Museum Keyport, just outside the center’s gates, attendees watched as Iwanowicz concluded brief remarks on the symbolism of the event, then turned stiffly to pass Reeder a folded American flag. In turn, Reeder passed the flag to Commander Erik Neal, also of the center, who passed it solemnly to a line of Navy divers. Hand-to-hand, each time with a full turn of the body and a slow, solemn salute, the flag was passed in

silence from the podium to the museum’s pole. A small table sat just behind the crowd, set with a white cloth, a single rose and place setting, its chair tilted forward. A plaque on the table said it was to honor those still missing in action. After remarks of his own, Reeder spoke with members of the audience. One was Don Itterley, a veteran who travelled from Port Hadlock to attend the ceremony on his motorcycle, on which he had painted scenes similar to that of the POW flag, including the silhouette of a man with his head bowed, in front of the silhouette of wire-fenced buildings. “I don’t talk much about my experiences, but on a day like today, when you’re recognizing it, it makes it a little less hard,” Reeder said. With Itterley, Reeder talked about PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, and how it had affected him after he returned. “When I came back there were mental health resources available, but there was a huge stigma to using [them],” Reeder said. “If I had sought help, especially as an aviator, it would have been the end of my career.” Reeder said that what helped him most was staying in the service, close to the network of support he formed with his unit and his fellow soldiers. For Itterley, who said he suffers from PTSD as well, attending events like Friday’s, along with making military-themed artwork, also helps.

In and after his remarks at the podium, Reeder said his heart went out to those left not knowing, but simply waiting. Of the sailors who stood at attention beside the flagpole during the ceremony, he said, “I was speaking as much to the guys behind me as I was to those in the audience.”

Consider people Bureaucracy looks at community in numbers. On occasion, the big decisions of leadership are illustrated with a single person. Going into budget cuts for the fourth straight year, the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners has the ever harder job of squeezing a belt already drawn to the hipbone. We encourage the commissioners to keep in mind the individual citizen, the one on whom the whole shebang is built, as they make long-reaching decisions when calling for deeper cuts to the general fund in effort to ballance the budget. Particularly troubling is the lauding of a 2011 cuts that shaved $500,000 out of public defense inside the prosecutor’s office to balance the budget. It’s an example that should be questioned. A county commissioner recently applauded the prosecutor’s ability to push felony cases, normally tried in GREG Superior Court, down into District SKINNER Court by increasing the number of plea bargains. The commissioner said civil cases in Superior Court have increased as a result. Those are cases that pay fees in cash. There are actually two net results of pushing plea bargains; the county contributes the “savings” to balance the budget on the macro view while the county’s poor and disenfranchised get served a lesser choice-less judicial system on the individual basis. Under a dominant plea system poor people simply don’t have access to the jury trial system that residents with the education or money do to offer a defense in a jury trial. With or without intent, the effect is that the prosecutor’s office becomes a triad of “justice” for the county when it is intended to be one leg of a stool. Alone the prosecutor becomes the cop, judge and jury with the ability to press on those they believe are guilty. With costs of Superior Court involved, further aggravation such as higher prosecutorial charges encourage a plea of something lesser to avoid the presumed “gamble” of a jury.

SpongeBob: he’s not so bad Monday morning, while my children sat in the living room watching one of the 198 episodes of “SpongeBob Squarepants” we have saved on our DVR, I opened the newspaper and saw a report: “SpongeBob Squarepants” is bad for children. In particular, it is (reportedly) bad for 4-year-olds. It makes them inattentive and hyperactive. (And this is different from every other 4-year-old because....?) As early as 8 a.m. that morning, Facebook was abuzz with mothers posting links to the article. “I knew SpongeBob was bad!” they wrote. Or, “I never let my kids watch that junk.” Of course, the other side—the SpongeBobtolerant side—was also represented on Facebook: “So long as my kids don’t act like Patrick....” wrote one mother. And my status update: “My kids are DOOMED!” When I first saw the report—flawed not in the least because (1) 4-year-olds are not the intended audience of “SpongeBob Squarepants,” as noted by its creators; and (2) the study only examined 60, yes, 60, children—I stopped mid-bite, a spoon full of cereal hovering over the newspaper, and considered my relationship with SpongeBob. I first became aware of the cartoon on Ford’s second birthday. One of Dustin’s friends gave Ford a stuffed SpongeBob, and it seemed hideous. Why would I let my child watch this tacky, nearly fluorescent yellow character, which is shaped more like a kitchen sponge than an underwater one? I wondered.

Four years passed. Ford was in kindergarten, and AVY Owen was 4. I was speaking at a military-spouse event in ISE Georgia, and while I was gone, Dustin let the boys order a ARAH movie from the hotel’s televiMILEY sion menu. In the absence of many kid-friendly choices, the boys reluctantly chose the first SpongeBob Squarepants feature movie. They didn’t really know SpongeBob; they weren’t sure they’d like it. Neither was Dustin. Yet, when I came back to the hotel, all three attacked me: “Mom, you’ve got to see this!” “Really, Sarah, this stuff is pretty funny.” Apparently, I had judged SpongeBob by his cover, if you will, because Dustin and the boys were right. It’s a sophisticated kind of humor, full of irony and double meanings. It’s like Saturday Night Live skits for kids: Humor comes from the absurd, measured against your own understanding of culture and current events. I was surprised—and quite pleased—that my young children seemed to “get” SpongeBob’s humor. One of our first favorite lines, repeated often, was: “Come on, Squidward was always there for us when it was convenient for him.” Oh sure, SpongeBob occasionally has an episode with technically inappropriate language. But the “Idiot Box” is funny because it’s inappropriate. My children know that. And sure, SpongeBob rips his pants while he’s trying to act cool and make people

Roughead says Navy ready to serve openly WASHINGTON (NNS) -Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Gary Roughead, announced to the Fleet Sept. 20 repeal of the 18-year old statute known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” allowing gay, lesbian, and bisexual service members to begin serving openly. NAVADMIN 271/11 is the 15th message in a series informing leadership and Sailors as the Navy moved through planning and training towards the repeal. In this message, CNO explained to the Fleet how this significant policy change will be effectively implemented through command leadership and adherence to Navy’s core values. “I have been impressed with our training, detailed

preparation, demonstrated professionalism, and decency of our Navy as we prepared for repeal. You have supported the process admirably and treated all your shipmates with dignity and respect. Thank you for how you have conducted this transition,” said Roughead. “I know your superb professionalism will continue in the post repeal environment as our Navy continues to be a positive, inclusive environment for all.” Immediately following that message NAVADMIN 272/11, offered further policy guidance regarding the repeal. The message explained that sexual orientation or lawful acts of homosexual conduct will not be considered as

a bar to military service or admission to service academies, ROTC or any other accession program. Accordingly, Sailors who were discharged solely under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” may apply to reenter the Navy and can expect to be evaluated according to the same criteria and service requirements applicable to all prior-service members seeking reentry. While the primary focus of repeal has been on changes in the law, some of

the most important aspects can be found in what will remain the same. For instance, sexual orientation will continue to be a personal and private matter. Current and future Sailors will not be asked, nor be required to reveal, their sexual orientation. Standards of conduct remain unchanged. Existing Navy standards of conduct will continue to apply to all Sailors regardless of sexual orientation. Enforcement of standards,

including those related to public displays of affection, dress and appearance, and fraternization will be sexual orientation neutral. All members are responsible for upholding and maintaining the high standards of the U.S. Navy at all times and in all places. The diversity of the force will remain a strength. Success of the Navy is enabled by the diversity of our Sailors, representing many different racial, religious, ethnic and economic

backgrounds, and by the expectation that all Sailors will be treated with dignity and respect. Accordingly, there will be no changes regarding the exercise of religious beliefs. All Sailors, regardless of sexual orientation, are entitled to an environment free from personal, social, or institutional barriers that prevent service members from rising to the highest level of responsibility possible.

Vets stand down Fifth annual event draws more than 100 By Tom James tjames@kitsapnavynews.com

Area veterans and their families turned out in strength Tuesday, Sept. 13 for the County Veterans Stand Down, showcasing a need that local veterans’ advocates say is on the rise. Some went for healthcare – free dental screening was available at the event – while others came for legal assistance, to make contact with specialists from the Veterans’ Affairs, or just to get a hot meal and a haircut. “I’m just trying to figure out what the VA can do for me,� said Gene Reynolds, who came later in the day with his friend Doug Wood. Wood said he wasn’t a veteran himself, but that his father had been, and that he just wanted to see what the Stand Down had to offer. Leif Bentsen, one of the event’s organizers, said that the number of attendees was down from last year, but that the decrease didn’t square with other data in the county on levels of need. Tuesday’s event had 139 area veterans in attendance, while last year’s drew upwards of 190. A human services planner with Kitsap County, Bentsen also oversees the county’s Veterans Assistance Program. Bentsen said one reason for the downward change might be that last year’s event was held on a Saturday, meaning that those with the least job flexibility might not have been able to attend this year’s event, which was held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Bentsen said that applications for financial assistance from the Veterans Assistance Program were on track to increase more

than 18 percent from 2010 levels, and 27 percent from 2009. The Veterans Assistance Program has been charged since 2007 with distributing funds from the Veterans Assistance Fund. Individual veterans are eligible for up to $1200 per year from the program, which they may apply for as they need it. The program does not give out cash, Bentsen said. Typically, he said, applicants present bills for things like heating fuel, electricity, and healthcare, which the program then pays directly. Bentsen said the program also sometimes distributes vouchers for services. Garry Hughes, a veterans’ specialist who screens new applicants at Kitsap Community Resources, including applicants for the Veterans Assistance Program, said that although he specializes in working with veterans, he thought need was up across the board. “I’m seeing people coming through my door that I never would have seen two years ago,� Hughes said. While he couldn’t provide hard numbers at the event, he estimated that at least a third of those new clients had been turned down for work because they were overquallified, many with houses, college degrees, and children. “Three years ago,� Hughes said, “they were financially stable.� Now, Hughes said, they make up a growing number of people new to the bottom of the financial pyramid. “It’s a shame,� Hughes said. “We’re booming. I’d rather not be booming.� Martin Rowe, a Remax realtor who was at the event along with another realtor to offer advice to veterans facing foreclosure, said he had worked with five people during the day. Most, he said, were behind in payments, and asking about what options were left if they couldn’t catch up. Overall, Rowe said he thought that foreclosure rates in the county were similar to those in the 2008 recession. Although com-

pared to the worst of that period fewer homes are in foreclosure today, he said, part of that could be because foreclosures take time to process, and more could be coming down the line. John Hoffman said he was at the event for a haircut and free clothes, along with a dental screening, which he said the VA does not provide for non-service related conditions. Hoffman said he would be able to pay for the items and services himself if not for the fact that he has nine otherwise homeless people sharing his family home with him, some rent-free, because they have nowhere else to go. “It’s always been a good event,� said Hoffman, who has been attending the events since they began in 2007. “My activities trying to keep a shelter going leave me so poor

that I have to come here myself.� According to data provided by Bentsen after the event, the Kitsap County Veterans Assistance Program has distributed $264,748 in financial aid to local veterans in need so far this

Program helps sailors transition into real world WASHINGTON (NNS) -The Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP) provides a widearray of services and opportunities to service members preparing to transition out of the military. “TAMP helps Sailors get ready for civilian life,� said Margarita Mason, transition manager, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Military and Family Support Center. “For many Sailors, the Navy was either their first job or their only career. TAMP helps these Sailors who have

no clue how to adjust to the civilian world and acts as a stepping stone to ensure they are well prepared.� TAMP is one of the many programs offered at Commander, Navy Installations Command’s (CNIC) Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) worldwide. Although every Sailor must complete DD Form 2648, Preseparation Counseling Checklist for Active Component Service Members, prior to separating, the form is just a small

part of the overarching Transition Assistance Management Program. While completing DD Form 2648 with a command career counselor, service members will be offered the opportunity to elect to receive counseling on a range of services and benefits, including, but not limited to, the transition assistance program (TAP), employment assistance, relocation assistance, education and training, health and life insurance, finances, reserve affiliation, veterans benefits

briefing, disabled veterans benefits, post government service employment restrictions, and developing an individual transition plan (ITP). DD Form 2648 should be completed one year prior to separation or two years prior to retirement. “Many military members think that TAMP and TAP are the same thing, but they’re not,� said Mason. “TAP is a U.S. Department of Labor workshop typically held at Fleet and Family Support Centers. FFSC’s own TAMP program goes far beyond just TAP and provides Sailors with opportunities to receive oneon-one counseling, as little or as much as they need, whether they come once or every day, so that they are as prepared as possible to depart the military and enter the civilian workforce.� Once the checklist is complete, service members will use the options they have

selected to develop an individual transition plan. This plan is not a military form, it is a plan developed by the Sailor, for the Sailor. The ITP can be used to identify educational, training and employment objectives and to develop a plan to help the service member achieve these objectives. Many times, a large part of that plan should be to visit the local FFSC to obtain counseling and receive assistance with things such as job fairs, resume writing, financial counseling, relocation counseling, questions about veteran’s benefits, and educational benefits and opportunities. Those departing military service should also be sure to keep their spouse, children and extended family aware of each step of the transition process. Talk with your spouse and help your child deal with issues by listening to their concerns and talking about any fears they

may have. By letting family actively participate in the process and allowing them to help, the service member can create a more positive experience for everyone involved. Mason reiterated that whatever the final goals are, the key to a successful transition is to “start early and plan well.� Those who would like to learn more about the Transition Assistance Management Program should visit their local Fleet and Family Support Center or visit www.nffsp.org. TAMP is one of many transition benefits available to separating Sailors including those affected by the Enlisted Retention Board (ERB).

Military child autism conf. held on East Coast PORSTMOUTH, VA (NNS) -- Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) hosted the Autism and the Military Child Conference Sept. 13 and 14 in Portsmouth, Va. The two-day conference was aimed at providing information and tools to military families with children who are autistic, as well as the medical providers who may treat military children with autism spectrum disorders. Fifteen speakers came to hold sessions for the more than 450 attendees. “A parent worrying about their child directly impacts their military performance,� said Cmdr. Rees L. Lee, NMCP pediatric department head. “We want to give you, the military families, the information you need for

your autistic children. We are caring for the children of heroes, and we want to educate and invigorate so our military is ready for the mission, and not worried about what’s going on back home.� Dr. Maria Barkmeier, from the Office of Community Support for Military Families with Special Needs, provided the keynote speech to kick off the conference. In her address, she emphasized empowering military families with special needs members, and wanted to raise awareness for the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP). EFMP can help military members who have family with any special needs, not only families with chil-

dren who have ASD. Once enrolled in the program, the military family can receive assistance with assignment coordination, identifying community resources to help with their special needs, and assist families during the transition to new locations when relocating. “There’s a great amount of family support available through EFMP,� Barkmeier said. “We’re dealing with exceptional families’ needs and they need and deserve exceptional service. There are more than 200,000 active-duty families coping with special needs family members. “We want these families to know that there are resources for them; Fleet and Family Support, Military OneSource

and EFMP are outlets they can explore to get the help they need,� Barkmeier added. “These military members are giving so much, and we need to make sure they are getting what they need so they can be focused on their mission.� During the symposium, breakout sessions were offered so attendees were able to choose the presentations and information they wanted to learn more about. The breakout sessions offered lessons on topics ranging from Applied Behavioral Analysis, sensory issues and the autism spectrum, and navigating Virginia Medicaid waivers. Along with the breakout lessons and full attendee sessions, the conference offered about a dozen exhibits like the Autism Society

of Tidewater and TRICARE Multi-Market Office offering informational materials and support to attendees. Day two of the conference featured a military family experienced in autism in the military setting. The panel of three encouraged the audience to learn from their experiences and ask them questions. The panel’s objective was to help everyone gain understanding about the unique issues that affect military families with children diagnosed with autism. Glenda Lewis-Fleming, Management Analyst and Disability Consultant at NMCP, helped to coordinate the event and moderated many of the sessions. Due to increasing numbers of military families asking for

information about autism, Fleming and other NMCP employees recognized the need to hold the conference for the first time since 2007. Knowing the need for information was acute, Fleming worked for the past year to help organize and plan it. “As soon as I was able to see all the families who attended - and being able to talk to them about what they need - that made all the hours of planning worth it,� Fleming said. “Our military families go beyond the call of duty. They make such great sacrifices for our country, and it is so very satisfying to be able to help and support them through this difficult journey they are traveling with their special needs family members.�

DADT | FROM PAGE 1 gay, lesbian, and bisexual service members serve in secret, went into effect. “They all thought it was cool,” Groslouis said. Others in Kitsap’s gay military celebrated in different ways. More than 60 people attended a celebration of the beleaguered policy’s end held at the Silverdale Beach Hotel, said Michael Goodnow, organizer of the event. Although it was a “lower-key” celebration than he expected, Goodnow said he was happy with the number of people who came Tuesday evening, and that the tone of the evening fit the character of the community. “I think one of the tough things (was) that in the community a lot of people thought it was a done deal,” Goodnow said. “It was very Kitsap in that it (wasn’t) a crazy Capitol Hill party, it’s people getting together,

meeting people, with friends, and marking the occasion.” The day came as the end to a journey toward repeal, the most recent stage of which began in late 2010, when a bill repealing the policy was passed on Dec. 15 by the U.S. House of Representatives and three days later by the Senate. That bill specified that the policy remain in place until 60 days after the president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff all certified that the repeal would not affect military readiness. July 22, those officials signed off on the bill shortly after a federal appeals court ordered the military to stop enforcing the ban, leaving one final roadblock to repeal: the 60-day wait. While many at the celebration expressed relief

that the wait was over, some also expressed reservations about the future and frustrations about the past. Sailor Ryan Riley had specific feelings about the repeal: he was out before it, he said, and he’d be out after it. “Nothing’s changed,” Riley said. “People talk, but never ever do anything about it.” Others saw the repeal and experienced the ban - differently. Noah Reidell made lieutenant before he was selected for a transfer away from the area where he’d met his partner, who was also in the Navy. Since his partner and he couldn’t apply to be posted together, Reidell said it came down to a choice: his relationship or his

career. Today he’s in the Navy Reserve, he said, and is comforted by the knowledge that his days of having to dodge innocent questions are over. Sarah Mount, formerly a chief petty officer aboard the USS John C. Stennis, which calls Bremerton home, said she was discharged just sixteen days before the repeal went into effect, not under DADT, but under military law prohibiting fraternization of superiors with subordinates. While she had watched straight male chiefs emerge from more serious disciplinary proceedings able to at least finish their service, she said, within two months of admitting to fraternizing with a woman

over whom she had no authority, she was discharged with only six days’ notice. In her case, Mount said the famous unity of the chiefs’ mess - the fraternity of those in the three highest enlisted ranks, responsible for putting command orders into effect - turned against her. After her admission, Mount said, her fellow chiefs wouldn’t speak to her, and even stopped making eye contact in the hallway. Eventually, she said, she started taking her meals in her sleeping quarters, just to avoid fellow chiefs. Mount said she thought the severity of her punishment - and her ostracism by her coworkers - had to do with the fact that as a

Tails on Trails Kitsap animal lovers will get a chance to help their furry and feathered friends Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. Bremerton’s Navy Wives Club of America (#46) is holding a dog walk for charity to benefit Rescue Every Dog, a charity dedicated to saving dogs and other animals scheduled for euthanasia, said a Wives Club organizer. Quarter- and half- mile routes around the fairgrounds will be available. After finishing, participants will be invited to a sponsors’

area and events, including a veterinarian, dog masseuse, owner and pet photos, a K-9 unit demonstration and a dog costume contest with prizes, said Joey Price of the Navy Wives Club said. Although the event is billed as a “dog walk,” said Price, all are welcome to walk, with or without dogs. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and costs $15. Children accompanied by adults are free. Registration and parking are available at 1200 Fairgrounds road, Bremerton. Price said the club is also

female chief she had admitted to fraternizing with another woman. “What is not going to be controlled by laws on paper is how they treat people,” Mount said. “That sort of bias is going to continue.” Before going into effect, the bill survived several attempts to block it, including a December move to add vocal opponents as certifiers of it, a June letter from House republicans asking President Obama to delay his signing of it, and a Sept. 16 request by two House lawmakers for further delays before its implementation. More than 13,000 service members were discharged from the military under DADT, many dishonorably.

encouraging walkers to collect and bring donations, and offering prizes for the three highestcollecting walkers and free event t-shirts for the first 100 walkers bringing in more than $100 in donations. All profits from the event go to benefit Rescue Every Dog. Both Rescue Every Dog and the Navy Wives Club (#46) are 501c3 organizations, Price said, and both registration fees and additional donations are tax-deductible.

there’s some serious character development going on. Some of the most creative conversations I’ve had with my children involve dissecting the humor and character development in the script of SpongeBob. For instance, for all the non-sensical things on SpongeBob that require us to momentarily suspend our disbelief (fish that drive motorcycles, a crab that counts money), the creators have held firm in this: a squirrel (Sandy) cannot breathe underwater. She has to wear an oxygen tank. That’s funny! The new study says kids are distracted and not creative after watching SpongeBob. Some of the things my kids have done after watching an episode include: writing their own SpongeBob Squarepants script, making puppets and filming their own cartoon and writing a book about

SpongeBob. A few years after our family embraced SpongeBob, Lindell was born. He crawled around the living room, a bottle hanging from his mouth, while his brothers sang the familiar theme song. Within a few months, Lindell started babbling. “Bop bop bish,” he said, and we all wondered what he meant. “What’s he saying? Is he trying to talk?” And then, all at once, I knew: Lindell was trying to say SpongeBob Squarepants. Yes, my third son’s first word was SpongeBob. And I’m OK with that. It could be worse. I look forward to reading his first SpongeBob script. Sarah Smiley is a author, syndicated columnist, mother and Navy wife. Her column appears weekly in the Kitsap Navy News.


Deadline Nears to Apply for Special ‘Stop Loss’ Pay WASHINGTON, SEPT. 21, 2011 – Only a month remains for eligible service members, veterans and their beneficiaries to apply for Retroactive Stop Loss Special Pay. Officials extended a previous deadline to Oct. 21 to allow more time for eligible people to apply. ���The nation has rallied behind this effort -- the military services have been joined by the White House, Congress, the [Veterans Affairs Department], veteran and military service organizations, and friends and family members around the world,” said Lernes Hebert, the Defense Department’s director of officer and enlisted personnel management.

“Despite these remarkable outreach efforts, some people may still not yet have applied. If you think you are eligible, and have not yet applied, now is the time to do so.” The special retroactive pay was established to compensate for the hardships military members encountered when their service was involuntarily extended under Stop Loss authority between Sept. 11, 2001, and Sept. 30, 2009, officials said. Eligible members or their beneficiaries may submit a claim to their respective military service to receive the benefit of $500 for each full or partial month served in a Stop Loss status. When the special pay began Oct. 21, 2009, the ser-

vices estimated 145,000 service members, veterans and beneficiaries were eligible for the benefit. Because the majority of those eligible had separated from the military, officials said, the services have engaged in extensive and persistent outreach efforts, including multiple direct mailings, public service announcements, and continuous engagements with military and veteran service organizations, social networks and media outlets. To apply, or for more information -- including submission requirements and service-specific links -- go to http://www.defense.gov/ stoploss.

Navy’s first, fast flexible catamaran christened MOBILE, ALA. (NNS) -- USNS Spearhead, the first of Navy’s joint high-speed vessels designed for rapid intra-theater transport of troops and military equipment, was christened Sept. 17 during a ceremony at Austal USA in Mobile, Ala. Military Sealift Command will own and operate Spearhead and the other joint highspeed vessels, or JHSVs, that are under contract to be built for the Navy. Spearhead will be crewed by 22 civil service mariners working for MSC who will operate, navigate and maintain the ship. “USNS Spearhead and her MSC crew will be indispensable as they perform critical logistics and fleet support missions around the world,” said Rear Adm. Mark H. Buzby, commander, Military Sealift Command, during his address to an audience of more than 1,200 people including leaders from the military services, Congress and maritime industry. U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions served as the principal speaker at the ceremony. Retired Army Chief Warrant Officer 4 Kenneth Wahlman is the ship’s sponsor. His daughter Catherine, a staff sergeant in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps at Virginia Tech University, broke the traditional bottle of champagne across the bow to formally christen the ship. The 338-foot-long aluminum catamarans are designed to be fast, flexible and maneuverable, even in shallow waters, making them ideal for transporting troops and equipment quickly within a theater of operations. “Flexibility may be the best attribute of this ship,” said civilian Capt. Douglas D. Casavant, Jr., Spearhead’s civil service master who has been sailing for MSC for 22 years. “Our 20,000-square-foot mission bay area can be reconfigured to quickly adapt to whatever mission we are tasked with, for instance carrying containerized portable hospitals to support disaster relief or transporting tanks and troops.” The JHSVs are capable of transporting 600

short tons of military troops, vehicles, supplies and equipment 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots and can operate in shallow-draft, austere ports and waterways, providing U.S. forces added mobility and flexibility. The JHSVs’ aviation flight decks can support day and night flight operations. Each JHSV also has sleeping accommodations for up to 146 personnel and airline-style seating for up to 312. One of the things Casavant is most looking forward to in his role as master of the first JHSV is working to define how these new ships will be used. “It’s going to be very interesting working with the fleet commanders to develop the ship and see how we can best support all of the services,” said Casavant. “This is going to change the way a lot of people think about moving equipment and personnel.” Following acceptance trials, delivery to the Navy and operational testing, Spearhead will be based in Little Creek, Va., and is expected to begin conducting missions for the Navy in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The Navy honored the ship’s original U.S. Army-chosen name and sponsor after the decision earlier this year to transfer five JHSVs originally slated to be owned and operated by the Army to the Navy. As MSC assets, all of the JHSVs will be civilian-crewed. The first four - including Spearhead - will be crewed by federally employed civil service mariners while the remaining will be crewed by civilian mariners working for private companies under contract to MSC. Military mission personnel will embark as required by the mission sponsors. MSC operates approximately 110 noncombatant, U.S. merchant mariner-crewed ships that replenish U.S. Navy ships, conduct specialized missions, strategically preposition combat cargo at sea around the world, and move military cargo and supplies used by deployed U.S. forces and coalition partners.

CHIEFS | FROM PAGE 1 lenge session.â&#x20AC;? In the first two stages of the process, general criteria narrow each yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field, followed by a selection board that chooses among qualified applicants based on demand within each Navy rate, or specialty, for chiefs. Finally, those sailors, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;selectees,â&#x20AC;? begin an intensive six-week training period with their commandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current chief petty officers, said Schell. When a selectee is approved by the selection board, said Schell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it means the Navy says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to be a chief.â&#x20AC;? But during

induction, he said, each selectee must also earn the approval of the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mess, or current chiefs, at his or her individual command. Nominally, Schell said, induction is the last stage in the selection process. In reality, he said, it is an intensive training period, and cases of selectees being dropped after beginning it are rare. Selectees each pair up with a chief from their command who becomes their sponsor, working with them throughout their induction. Sponsors, along with the other fellow chiefs

in their command, teach their selectees naval history and tradition, as well as the finer points of leadership, Schell said. Beginning the day after the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selections are announced, â&#x20AC;&#x153;induction seasonâ&#x20AC;? lasts until the ceremony itself, culminating with a 24-hour marathon during which each selectee passes through seven â&#x20AC;&#x153;challenge stationsâ&#x20AC;? designed to teach the seven guiding principles of being a master chief. Known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;night-of events,â&#x20AC;? the challenges begin the morning before the ceremony and continue until only a few hours before it, Schell said. Both the induction and the final ceremony are based on a long history, said Navy spokesman and chief Dale Davis. Davis said he took part in many of the same events as Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group when he was a selectee, including daily physical training with chiefs from his command and putting together a training for those chiefs to show what he had learned. Of the night-of events, Davis, Schell, and the new chiefs were all tight-lipped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fraternal kind of thing,â&#x20AC;? said Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get into everything that goes on.â&#x20AC;? Still, Davis said, chiefs

today are required to connect each induction exercise with a training point, reducing what he said had been an element of hazing present in some older traditions. On average, said Stahl, during the induction he saw his family â&#x20AC;&#x153;a couple of hours a day, at most. And those two hours I was pretty delerious.â&#x20AC;? With five children, Stahl said his wife put her nursing career on hold during the six-week process so that he could take part. Stahl said he felt the Navy had become significantly more competitive even recently, and that he was surprised to have received the promotion. Future selectees, he said, should feel lucky they made it past the selection board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fortunate enough to get there,â&#x20AC;? Stahl said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;be thankful you had what it took. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge accomplishment.â&#x20AC;? More than 250 chiefs received their anchors Friday throughout Navy Region Northwest, Davis said.

Thousands attend Bremerton 9/11 BREMERTONâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thousands of service members and civilians attended the 10th Anniversary September 11th Groundbreaking and Remembrance Ceremony held at Evergreen-Rotary Park in Bremerton, Sept. 11. The ceremony began with three long wails of sirens from a fire truck to commemorate the noises heard on that fateful morning. The sirens were followed by the presentation of colors and the national anthem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a doubt, the course of history changed 10 years ago, and just as in times past, our brave men and women in uniform responded accordingly,â&#x20AC;? said Capt. Stephen E. Iwanowicz, commander, Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Keyport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, it is only appropriate that we take a moment to recognize those who have answered the call of their nation in our hour of need.â&#x20AC;? Iwanowicz also spoke of the support of the local community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud to live in a community that not only takes time to recognize our Armed Forces on solemn occasions such as this

but throughout the year,â&#x20AC;? said Iwanowicz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thank you for showing your appreciation to the people who support and defend the United States of America.â&#x20AC;? Rear Adm. Douglass T. Biesel, commander, Navy Region Northwest, and keynote speaker of the ceremony, spoke of the dedication of men and women who have volunteered in the past 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today is a chance to pay tribute to a generation that has borne the burden of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security during this past decade of war,â&#x20AC;? said Biesel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 9/11 military generation is a generation of volunteers who volunteered during a time of war. They uphold the virtues of service, sacrifice and selflessness that have always been the source of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength. They are our guarantors of freedom for now and for our future. Today is also a day to pay tribute to all the first responders, be it our firemen, policemen, EMTs, dispatchers, emergency management personnel, volunteers like the Red Cross and everyday good Samaritans who selflessly dedicate themselves and endanger their lives to rescue those

in distress.â&#x20AC;? Chief Machinistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mate (Sel) Restituto Sison, assigned to Naval Operation Support Center, emphasized the importance of helping people in a time of need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no stop in helping people out; we can always do more as a community to support our people,â&#x20AC;? said Sison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that this ceremony and the future memorial site truly signifies that.â&#x20AC;? The New York/ New Jersey Port Authority and the Families of 9/11 Organization awarded Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue Department two steel beams recovered from the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. The beams will be displayed as part of a planned memorial at the park. Rear Adm. Biesel spoke about the future memorial site and its significance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This memorial soon to be erected here at Evergreen-Rotary Park in Bremerton, Washington is not just a reminder of the lives lost on that terrible day,â&#x20AC;? said Biesel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a also a tangible symbol of the fundamentals of the optimism of the American people, the resiliency weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shown in the face of adversity, challenge and tragedy. We are a strong nation, much stronger than the steel that supported the towers of the World Trade Center or the stone columns that support the Pentagon.â&#x20AC;?

Downes did unspoken duty Without glamour, without fanfare, destroyer answered all bells Kitsap Navy News

The destroyer USS Downes (DD-45) served most of its career off Britain and Ireland. Built by New York Shipbuilding Co., of Camden, N.J., Downes was outfitted and then commissioned Feb. 11, 1915 at Philadelphia Navy Yard. Downes displaced 1,072 tons and was 305 feet long. With a draft of nine feet the ship could steam at 29 knots. The Cassin-class vessel had a crew of 96 sailors and was armed with four, 4-inch gun mounts and eight, 18-inch torpedo tubes. After shakedown off the New York and Chesapeake Bay, Downes returned to the Philadelphia Navy Yard and was put in ordinary commission until May 1917 for the construction and installation of new machinery by the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contractor. The ship was fitted out for distant service and sailed from New York, Oct. 18, 1917, en route to Devonport, England. After arriving Nov. 7, the ship moved to Queenstown, Ireland, Nov. 17 where it operated for 13 months on convoy

escort duty, which included steaming inbound to British ports and across the English Channel, and out to the open sea and rendezvousing with ocean escorts. Other operations had the ship patrolling for submarines off the Irish Coast, but without any results. Several times the destroyer came to the aid of other distressed ships. The shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts were twice noted with commendations from the British Admiralty. One was for its protection of the torpedoed USS Manley (DD-74) and again for the rescue and salvage of the British submarine HMS Z-51. Downes arrived at Brest, France, Dec. 6, 1918 to meet and escort President Woodrow Wilson who was embarked in USS George Washington. After passing in review, the ship returned to Queenstown Dec. 14. The day after Christmas, the ship returned to the United States arriving at Norfolk, Va., Jan 18, 1919. After winter maneuvers off Cuba, the ship was sent to New York March 14 where it remained until May.

It was then sent to Norfolk, Va., for overhaul and was placed in ordinary commission. Downes was restored to full commission and sailed for Newport News, R.I., arriving May 12, 1921 for summer maneuvers. Between Oct. 22 and March 20, 1922, the ship was berthed at Charleston, S.C. It was then transferred to the Philadelphia Navy Yard where it was placed out of commission June 6, 1922 and laid up. Downes was transferred to the Coast Guard April 28, 1924. It was returned to Navy custody at Philadelphia May 22,

NROTC goes to Harvard CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (NNS) -- Harvard University welcomed the return of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) program during a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the new NROTC office here, Sept. 20. The opening of the office was the capstone of an agreement signed by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Harvard University President Drew Faust March 4, which brought the NROTC program back to the Harvard campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honored to be here as the first Director of Naval ROTC at Harvard University,â&#x20AC;? said Capt. Curtis R. Stevens, commanding officer of the Harvard NROTC unit, during the ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great day for Harvard, the Navy and Marine Corps and the United States. Harvardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy of service predates the founding of our republic. George Washington took command of the Continental Army in 1775 just three blocks

Our Naval ROTC students are the successors and the embodiment of the citizen soldiers and Sailors that fought to establish our nation.â&#x20AC;? Harvard was one of the six original partner institutions of NROTC when the program was established in 1926. The new NROTC program office on the Cambridge campus returns an NROTC presence to Harvard for the first time in 40 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I share a new wish today-a wish that this program flourish in the months and years ahead,â&#x20AC;? Faust said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That it exemplify an idea at the heart of our country and our university, that our diversity makes us strong.â&#x20AC;? NROTC active duty Navy and Marine Corps officers, like Stevens, are now able to meet with Harvard NROTC midshipmen on the university campus during routinely scheduled office hours in the NROTC Harvard office.

Both Stevens and Faust said the partnership will enhance the mentoring and development of Harvard NROTC midshipmen and provide an opportunity for the Harvard community to learn more about the Navy and Marine Corps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Harvard Naval ROTC midshipmen enrich the school today by their leadership on the playing fields, in student organizations and in the classroom just as previous generations of Harvard students have done who answered the call to service,â&#x20AC;? Stevens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Navy and Marine Corps team gains strength by being representative of the diversity and talent that makes this nation great. It is only fitting the naval service and Harvard join together again in this common purpose.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The revival of the relationship between Harvard and the Naval ROTC marks an important new chapter in the long and storied history of military service by members of the Harvard

McHugh Cites Major Improvements at Arlington Army News Service

WASHINGTON, SEPT. 21, 2011 – Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh today released a report to Congress, updating improvements made at Arlington National Cemetery more than a year after he ousted the cemetery’s leadership and made sweeping changes in its structure and oversight. “They have put in place new policies and procedures to protect against and prevent the type of errors uncovered in the Army’s pre-

vious investigations,” the letter says. “Equipment and training have been modernized, contracting procedures revamped, a historic partnership created with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the workforce improved and reinvigorated, and ongoing outreach and information has been provided to family members and the American public.” McHugh provided the report to congressional oversight committees in response to legislation seeking the status of reforms he directed. In compiling the report, McHugh

directed the Army’s inspector general to again inspect the facility to determine compliance. An earlier inspector general report, also ordered by McHugh, found failures in management and oversight that contributed to the loss of accountability, lack of proper automation, ineffective contract compliance and a dysfunctional workforce. “Perhaps most important, the inspector general found the mismanagement that existed prior to these changes no longer exists,” he told Congress yesterday. “And that significant progress has been made in all aspects of the cemetery’s performance, accountability and modernization. “We’re confident that the Army is on the right path toward repairing the cemetery’s failures and restoring the confidence of Congress and the American people,” he added. McHugh noted that even while

making massive improvements in the cemetery’s management and oversight, the pace of 27 to 30 funeral services per day -- many with full military honors -- has not abated. “Since 1864, the United States Army has been steward of this,

the country’s only active military shrine,” he said. “I believe this report will demonstrate the Army’s steadfast commitment to repairing what was broken in the past, and ensuring America’s continued confidence in the operation of its most hallowed ground.”

Mullen: Relationships Key to Preventing Conflict By Donna Miles American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, SEPT. 21, 2011 – Relationships. As Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, prepares to retire from the military next week, he called these ties between national leaders and their foreign counterparts key to preventing misunderstanding and, ultimately, conflict. Mullen offered his insights last night at the Jewish Primary Day School of the

Nation’s Capital here as part of its sixth annual Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture series. Mullen entered the military at a “challenging, tumultuous time for our country” during the Vietnam War. Now, as the top U.S. military officer, he acknowledged having “a very difficult job at a very difficult time.” But throughout his fourdecade career, and particularly in his current post, he said, relationships have made the difference.

A student of the late Army Gen. George C. Marshall, Mullen said he was inspired by the importance Marshall placed on relationships while rising through the ranks to become Army chief of staff, secretary of state, then secretary of defense. Marshall’s example is particularly applicable in today’s complex world, Mullen said. “Relationships are more and more critical,” he told last night’s forum. Relationships can be at every level: between the

defense secretary and his counterparts; the secretary of state and hers; the top military officer and his. But ultimately, Mullen said, they form a foundation that enables two nations to work together and overcome challenges. “There is no cookie cutter [formula],” the chairman said. “You have to work with these individuals to really understand [their issues].” One of Mullen’s most concerted efforts has been to strengthen the United States’ relationship with Pakistan through his personal relationship with Pakistani Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. Visiting Pakistan 27 times during the past four years, Mullen said he has developed “a very close relationship” with Pakistan’s senior officer. Their relationship has helped move Pakistan beyond its distrust of the United States -- the product of America’s abandonment in 1989 and of its breaking of relations altogether from 1990 to 2002, Mullen said. The Pakistanis “remember that like it was yesterday,” he said, with many of them skeptical that the United States’ renewed interest toward Pakistan since 9/11 will endure. Mullen credits his relationship with Kayani with helping overcome some of that mistrust while advancing both countries’ interest in facing down terrorists. It’s a relationship Mullen conceded has had its bumps along the road, such as after the United States led a secret raid into Pakistan in pursuit

of Osama bin Laden. It also has required tough talk about Pakistan’s failure to keep terrorists from crossing into Afghanistan and its intelligence agency’s ties to proxy terror groups such as the Haqqani network. “I’ve had very frank conversations with [Kayani],” Mullen said last night. But thanks to the strength of the relationship, Mullen said, those conversations “didn’t break” the process. “I attribute some of that to the fact that we stayed in touch,” he said. “I think it’s important that we can talk about it.” Mullen expressed regret that he has no relationship whatsoever with his Iranian counterpart, and said he would welcome one, “even if we completely disagree.” It could promote understanding that, in a time of crisis, could help keep issues from escalating. “If there were problems there or conflict breaks out there” under current conditions, “there would be miscalculations just based on the complete lack of knowledge of each other,” he said. The chairman recalled, for example, hosting Gen. Chen Bingde, chief of the general staff of the People’s Liberation Army, at the Pentagon in May. Two months later, Mullen traveled to China to build on those talks. “We discussed many important issues of mutual concern,” Mullen told reporters in Beijing then during a joint news conference with Chen. “And I believe we went a long way toward advanc-

ing some of the initiatives to which we both committed during your visit to the United States in May.” Mullen conceded last night that he and Chen have many areas where they disagree. “But we do agree on some things, and we have got to keep that relationship alive and try to understand each other,” he said. That understanding could clear up questions about issues like China’s military build-up, and its lack of transparency about it, Mullen said. It also could encourage exchange about issues such as China’s current actions in the South China Sea to reach a peaceful resolution. “The last thing in the world I want to see is a conflict with them in that part of the world,” Mullen said. In yet another part of the globe, Mullen credited the longstanding U.S. militaryto-military relationship with Egypt with helping that country through its current turmoil. Mullen has consistently praised the Egyptian military for its restraint in the face of a protest movement that ultimately toppled Hosni Mubarak’s regime. Mullen said he has “a very strong relationship” with his Egyptian counterpart, Lt. Gen. Sami Enan, and has talked with him “dozens of times or more” in recent months as the country works its way toward democracy. “He wants us to stay in this relationship,” Mullen said. “He feels strongly about the importance of it.”
