For sale, used veteran’s building By GREG SKINNER Kitsap Navy News

Last week the building that formerly housed American Legion Post 68 moved into bankruptcy sale and the current leadership is fine with letting it go. John Corriea, the somewhat disputed current post commander, and Paul Young, the somewhat disputed current adjutant, say they don’t wish to stop the sale and never want the building back. For that matter, they say, if the post emerges from the current Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the charter will not return to gambling, bingo or tavern operations that led to the post’s

Lt. Dan Band delivers high-energy show for NBK family By GREG SKINNER Kitsap Navy News

Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band closed out the Fourth of July celebrations for families aboard Naval Base Kitsap with a show that fulfilled his promise to American service men and women – that they would “leave feeling good.”

Sinise and his band of Chicago-area A list musicians played their non-stop set of popular music and cover tunes from the World Ward II generation to contemporary hits. In keeping with the bands tradition, on several occasions the audience was invited to take the stage to dance and sing with the band. Sinise co-founded the band with Chicago music professor and Viet Nam Veteran Kemo Williams after making a number of USO tours as himself. Senise said he wanted more options to entertain the troops he was visiting across the globe. Williams began touring musicaly in the jungles of Southeast Asia while serving as a U.S. Army sapper as a way to boost morale. During Tuesday’s show the chest of his grey shirt carried the combat engineers emblem

as he played Jimi Hendrix’ “Purple Haze” a song he learned “over there.” Senise has become the Bob Hope of the 21st Century, said Don Leingang, executive director of USO Puget Sound. A year of planning went into Senise’s visit and concerts for Puget Sound area bases, he said. Monday saw the Lt. Dan Band play for 10,000 during the Joint Base Lewis McChord Freedom Festival. Beyond his shows, visits to military hospitals and personal time with some of the troops, this week kicked off Senise’s latest effort to grow support for American troops, which he says are close to taxed.

Kitsap 9-11 memorial still not local favorite By GREG SKINNER

Kitsap Navy News

Going into Wednesday night’s Bremerton City Council meeting, the proposed design of the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial remained unpopular with those voicing opinions in writing to city leaders. Before the council was a proposed Memorandum of Understanding intended to guide the controversial memorial through to an overall design acceptable to the public and the parks board. The planned location for the memorial and the grand scope of the preliminary design have been sticking points with some in the community and two of the Bremerton Parks and Recreation Board commissioners. If the design, created buy Dave Fergus, architect, Central Kitsap Fire Commissioner, and chair of the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial Design Committee, were approved and build in Evergreen Park, it would be the second largest memorial to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the East Coast. Since its inception, the memorial has migrated from the ground of the Central Kitsap Fire District to the current proposed

location at Evergreen Park. The city council voted to give the memorial park space before plans or designs were available to the city leaders or for public comment. The memorial committee hopes to have a groundbreaking ceremony on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Fundraising continues for a project that is expected run into the millions without public funding. The memorandum allows groundbreaking to happen even if the final plans are not agreed upon. In each council member’s meeting packet were several notes from citizens expressing concern for the memorial in terms of the message sent and the possible financial liability the city may face down the road. Several citizens of bremerton said they don’t trust the 9/11 committee to remain financially liable for the years after the memorial would be built. During the May Parks board meeting, Fergus gave brief details of the committee’s plan to fund maintenance for a minimum of ten years once complete. The only written support for the memorial, as planned, came from members of the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial Commission.

Previous criticism of the proposed memorial included that it was too East Coast and had no connection with the Bremerton or Kitsap County experience of 9/11. The memorandum of understanding lays out a plan to move forward

through with the idea that current plans are a “suitable foundation for the continuation of the design process.” Though the parks board passed the project approval off to the city during their May 24 meeting, the memoran-

dum re-includes the parks board and employees in the design process as co designers of the final proposal, which is to return to the city council for a vote

Sentator Patty Murray canceled a “Veteran’s Listening Session” planned for July 7 in Bremerton. Murray, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, had planned on meeting with local veterans at VFW Post 239 to listen to their concerns and issues. She and the full body of the Senate were recalled after the traditional Fourth of July recess was canceled to work on solutions to the budget issues surrounding the so-called federal debt ceiling. “Due to continued and important budget discussions in Washington DC, the July Washington State work period has been canceled and the Senator will 3FNFNCFSBODF

be in Washington, D.C.,” Kristine Reeves, Senator Murray’s Tacoma Office said. “However, as Senator Murray is eager to speak with area veterans, the session is merely being postponed to a date in the near future.” No future date has been set for face-time with local and statewide veterans’ communities. Murray held listening sessions across the state in 2010, including bremerton which is home to an estimated 36,000 veterans. According to her spokespeople the 2011 Hiring Heros Act, which seeks to aid the growing new generation of war veterans find work with less hoops and red tape, was crafted in part on the comments and stories heard during the 2010 sessions.

Sub vets reward local scholars By Sarah Kehoe

KITSAP NAVY NEWS

A group of local submarine veterans worked extra hours so they could reward eight young scholars from Kitsap County with help to reach their educational goals. The Bremerton chapter of The United States Submarine Veterans Incorporated (USSVI) recently awarded eight $1,000 scholarships to students through their annual Lt. William “Willie” Spoon Memorial Scholarship. The winners are Kimberly Gray, Meghan Grey, Annalisa Harris, Ariel Hay, Kelly McColl, Ariana Sheridan, Amanda Snyder and Joseph Wiltz. “We do this to give these kids a chance to excel in their lives,” said Fred Borgmann, USSVI chaplain. “It is inspirational to our group to know we are doing a little bit to help them out.” USSVI has a membership of 275 former or current qualified submariners. They meet monthly for the purpose of keeping the memory of shipmates who have passed on alive and to create events for veterans in the area. They also do what they can for veterans in need and help maintain memorials.

“Loyalty and dedication to the people who served beside us is our number one goal, but we also work to give back to the area and the people we fought for,” Borgmann said.

“We want to keep his memory alive because of how tirelessly and selflessly Willie worked to improve this program,” – Fred Borgmann, USSVI chaplain

The scholarship award is for the children of an active duty or retired submarine veteran. USSVI group members chose winners based on grade point averages, an essay applicants write about their goals and the financial needs of each. “Our actual scholarship started in 1982 and one scholarship for $500 was given out,” Borgmann said.

The U.S. Navy fell victim to a counterfeit scam that left them with 59,000 fake microchips from China that also had backdoor access making it possible for the Chinese to hack in and shut off missiles or other “malfunctions,” according to WIRED Magazine.

scholarship was named after, took over the program in 1993 and was able to increase the number and amount of the scholarships. He gained financial help by organizing a raffle with local businesses and putting together a fireworks sale. “We want to keep his memory alive because of how tirelessly and selflessly Willie worked to improve this program,” Borgmann said. Spoon was diagnosed with cancer, but continued to give his time to the program until his death in 2002. “It isn’t easy to take on a leadership position, but Willie did it well and is a great model for us as we continue forward,” Borgmann said. Borgmann and fellow USSVI members managed to keep increasing the amount of the scholarship each year through fund-raisers. Their main ones include selling fireworks on Kitsap Way and collecting donations from local merchants by passing out raffle tickets at their businesses. “Many of us get together every Friday to eat lunch at a local restaurant, laugh and tell stories and encourage restaurant owners to give to our cause,” Borgmann said.

In 2003, group member and Navy Federal Credit Union Associate Manager Jim Thompson solicited $5,000 from his business and gave it to the scholarship fund. The boost in funds raised the number of scholarships available for applicants from one to eight. Members say leveraging the donation and working for more funds has meant they are able to pay for all scholarships one year in advance. In 2010, the raffle and donations exceeded $5,000, making the group able to provide eleven, $1,000 scholarships to students. This year the group received less donations, but were still able to donate $1,000 to the USSVI’s national scholarship program. It is the success stories that keep members invested in the program. “We like it when they get a hold of us and tell us how they are doing as they go through their school life,” Borgmann said. “I am happy to say most do keep in touch through letters or coming to our meetings.” Borgmann recalled one special story sticking out to him. “There was a young woman who

Don’t miss-lead the public

Regular readers will note a high level divergency between the page 7 column in this week’s issue and a news story that appeared on Page 3 of the June 24 edition – namely, that on June 24 we say “Spice,” a synthetic and mostly undetectable form of marijuana, is not a problem aboard Naval Base Kitsap and this week’s column, written by a Navy lawyer, saying that “Spice” is indeed aboard and is destroying the lives and careers of some sailors. In June we tasked a Navy News Reporter to find out about Spice use aboard NBK and see if there is a local problem as is the case with several large naval installations. For a local paper to access sources for a story on the Navy, we must go through the public affairs office. We did. On June 21 our reporter contacted GREG the assigned NBK public affairs office SKINNER about local Spice use and what the Navy might be doing to prevent its use or effect on sailors. Our reporter was met with rancor and accused of “interrogating” the Navy on the subject. No access to relevant or appropriate Navy agencies aboard NBK was given. The reporter then reached out to Bremerton Naval Hospital for information regarding any medical issues related to NBK Spice use and was told that no evidence of problems from Spice use existed. “I don’t think we have any cause for concern,” Douglas Stutz said. In a short story we reported specifically what the Navy said. Today, we are running the column that a Navy lawyer generated in direct response to the story we ran based on what turns out to be truncated, bad and miss-leading information that came directly from official, on-the-record, U.S. Navy sources. We apologize to our readers for the story that contained misleading information about a serious and real problem aboard NBK.

A short ten minutes later, the boys ran through the backdoor like bulls released from pens. They took up their light sabers and chased each other. The youngest one blasted potted plants with water from his gun. And although I asked them to stay away from your area, let’s face it, their voices can be heard a mile away.

The people still have confidence in the troops WASHINGTON (AFPS) – Americans continue to express high confidence in the armed forces, with more than three-quarters of those surveyed in a recent Gallup poll reporting higher confidence in the military than in other national institutions for the 14th consecutive year. Seventy-eight percent of the 1,020 respondents in the poll, taken earlier this month and released last week, reported high esteem for the military. Forty-seven percent said they have a “great deal� of confidence in the military, the highest rating, and 31 percent reported “quite a lot� of confidence. That rating was 14 percent higher than for the secondranking institution, small business, and 22 percent higher than for the third-ranking institution, the police. The military has been the top-ranked national institution every year since 1998, and also from 1989 to 1996, Gallup offi-

cials reported. Confidence levels in most of the institutions polled this year were below historical averages, with the notable exception of the military. The 78 percent military confidence ranking for 2011 was 11 points above the historical average. Public confidence in the military tends to run high when the United States is actively engaged in military operations, officials said, citing the all-time 85-percent high confidence ranking in early 1991 just after the first Persian Gulf War ended. Ratings have ranged between 69 percent and 82 percent over the last decade during U.S. military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, officials reported. Another Gallup poll, also conducted earlier this month and released June 21, demonstrated that Americans consider the ground forces most essential to national defense.

Service members join President for Fourth of July WASHINGTON (AFPS) – Military service members attending the White House Independence Day celebration represent the latest in a long line of heroes who have served the United States with honor and sacrificed much to protect the freedoms all Americans enjoy, President Barack Obama said here today. “I cannot think of anybody I would rather celebrate with than all of you,” the president said, “the men and women of our military and our extraordinary military families.” Obama and his wife and children hosted a traditional Fourth of July cel-

ebration for members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. About 1,200 service members and their families attended the White House event, which included a barbeque, a USO show featuring Train and Amos Lee and a viewing of the national capital fireworks. “After all that you do for our country every day, we wanted to give you a chance to get out of uniform, relax a little bit and have some fun,” Obama told the troops. “But of course it’s also a time for us to reflect on the meaning of America.” The small band of

patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence might be surprised to see their legacy, Obama said, including a nation that’s led revolutions in commerce, sent people to the moon, lifted up the poor, cured the sick, fought for democracy and served as a beacon of hope around the world. “All this could only happen because of our founders’ central faith that through democracy and individual rights ordinary people have it within their means to forge a nation that’s more just and more equal and more free,” Obama said.

FEET FIRST

by

Dr. David M. Gent

D.P.M. METATARSALGIA Often called the “ball of the foot,” the metatarsal area is located on the bottom of the foot just below the toes. This area can become inflamed and painful, which is a condition called metatarsalgia. Sometimes it affects the whole ball of the foot, and other times it involves just the portion under the big toe. Too much pressure over a long period can cause the condition, and it often occurs because a person wears ill-fitting shoes, high heels or other dress shoes that do not give the toes enough space. High-impact activities without proper footwear can also contribute to the condition. Your podiatrist can suggest foot inserts or prescribe orthotics to remedy the situation. New patients welcome and seen on the same day. Early & late appointments available. Most insurances accepted.

circumstance,” she said. “I also gained a deep understanding that citizenship is not just having rights [of Americans], but it is also recognizing and accepting the responsibilities that come with these rights,” said Dunbar. “By working hard and believing in myself, with great support from family and friends, I have been living ‘the American dream’ for over 17 years.” The United States gave her a husband, a degree, a career, and a family, Dunbar said. “I had this wonderful picture of my life, but I felt like there was something missing,” said Dunbar. “This picture was missing a

Every service member is heir to that legacy, the president added, introducing five heroes, one from each service. While on patrol in Iraq, Army Sgt. 1st Class Justin Gang’s convoy was struck by a roadside bomb and fell under enemy fire, Obama said. “Even after being wounded by shrapnel himself, he helped secure the scene and evacuate his wounded comrades to safety and today we honor his extraordinary courage,” he added. Nigeria-born Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Obi Nwagwu, a hospital corpsman, became an American citizen and volunteered to serve in the U.S. military. “As an orthopedic technician, he helps our wounded warriors regain their strength and resume their lives back home,” Obama said. “Today we honor his incredible dedication.” Whether it’s partnering with the Iraqi army or

frame. Today, I am framing the wonderful picture of my life; I am becoming an American citizen.” Base commanding officer, Capt. Kirk R. Hibbert, who was naturalized in 1978 after emigrating with his family to the U.S. from Jamaica, attended the ceremony. “A lot of people have an idea of what it means to be an American,” said Hibbert, whose parents emigrated to the U.S. to give their children more options for their futures. “It means freedom and opportunity.” Becoming a U.S. citizen cannot be simply or tangibly described, said Hibbert. “You can’t put a price on freedom,” said Hibbert. “It is priceless.” The ceremony was made possible by a visit from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official, who visited the base to conduct the ceremony and speak with service members and their families about citizenship and immigration issues. “Guantanamo Bay is really a unique environment,” said Jack McCarthy, USCIS field office director for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, Mexico. “There is almost something poetic about being in the corner of a communist country, having a naturalization ceremony while heading into the Fourth of July weekend.”

“You’re standing with all of those throughout the world who are reaching for the same freedoms and the same liberties that we celebrate today.” – President Obama

Force Master Sgt. Heather Adkins “knows how to get things done and today we honor her tireless devotion.” Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Robert “Keith” Kesterson rushed through enemy fire to free a fellow Marine trapped inside a burning vehicle, the president said.

“After untangling the Marine’s equipment, he extinguished the flames and pulled him to safety, and today we honor his unyielding loyalty,” Obama added. Less than 24 hours after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the president said, Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Marlene Riklon was on the scene helping direct aid and save lives in the midst of chaos. Today, Obama said, “we honor her incredible dedication.” These patriots and their fellow service members, the president said, are the reason why America and its armed forces “remain the greatest force for peace and security that the world has ever known.” Together, he added, “you’re standing with all of those throughout the world who are reaching for the same freedoms and the same liberties that we celebrate today.”

Japanese Gov. thanks American mil.

YOKOTA AIR BASE, JAPAN (AFNS) – High-ranking officials from the U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy were invited to Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 30 in appreciation of Operation Tomodachi. The State Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Japan, Yutaka Banno, presented each leader with a shield and bowed deeply in appreciation for their help after the March 11 9.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated the eastern coast of Japan. “The U.S. forces quickly responded to the disaster and conducted aid activity with more than 20,000 personnel and 460 aircraft and helped the country,” Banno said. “On behalf of the Japanese people, I would like to say thank you to all of you. Operation Tomodachi reminded us that Japan and the U.S. are really good friends, and you swiftly helped us out.” After the 12 officials received their shields, Lt. Gen. Burton Field, the 5th Air Force and U. S. Forces Japan commander, expressed appreciation for

the recognition, saying, “We accept these honors with great humility.” Field went on to explain the motivation that drove disaster relief efforts. “When the great earthquake happened, we were all here,” the general said. “We live in Japan; we enjoy the benefits of this great country and the benefits of the culture. So, when the tragedy happened, it was not only our honor but also our duty to try to be some small part of the recovery operation. We were very honored to be there at (Japan’s) side.” The earthquake and subsequent tsunami is considered by the government of Japan to be the greatest crisis to strike the country since World War II, meriting support provided by U.S. Forces Japan and several civilian agencies. “There are not enough words to say thank you,” Banno said, adding that the shields were just a small token of appreciation, compared to the deep gratitude felt by himself and his nation.

Navy commands at Naval Station Everett, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and Naval Base Kitsap have had Sailors punished and separated from the Navy for using these synthetic drugs. While most cases to date have been single Sailors, other cases have left entire families with loss of income, housing, food, medical care and other Federal benefits simply because a Sailor wanted an artificial “high.” Five of the synthetic substances that make up Spice (a drug with effects that mimic marijuana) have been placed on the Drug

Enforcement Administration Schedule I controlled substance list, thereby making purchase, use, possession, distribution or manufacture of these synthetic substances a Federal crime. In addition, Washington State has placed emergency bans on the five federally controlled Spice substances and on “bath salts,” which are synthetic drugs meant to mimic cocaine. Approximately 80 additional substances used in some versions of Spice are not on the Federal schedule, however, CNRNW General Order 10-01 makes it a crime for Sailors to use, possess, purchase, distribute or manufacture any of the synthetic substances contained in Spice or bath salts. Violators may be punished at either courts-martial or through non-judicial punishment. Navy policy is zero tolerance on drug abuse and Secretary of the Navy

instruction requires mandatory separation processing for violators. While bath salts and some Spice substances are illegal for sale in Washington stores, many synthetic substances can still be legally sold, even though they are not legal for Navy personnel. Almost 850 stores in Washington counties where naval bases are located have been asked not to sell synthetic drugs to Navy personnel. At the same time, Commander, Navy Region Northwest sent a message to all-hands in the Northwest region informing them of the prohibition against these substances. In addition to being illegal, using Spice and other synthetic drugs are dangerous, unpredictable, risky and incompatible with Navy core values. Some reports indicate that

Spice can be as much as 200 times more potent than marijuana and that its use can cause seizures, vomiting, respiratory failure, central nervous system damage and hallucinations. It also can lead to violent crime or suicide. The first ship that runs aground or weapons discharge attributable to Sailors performing their duties under the influence

of a synthetic drug could be catastrophic, though not far-fetched. Several Sailors who have been discharged this year have admitted to using Spice while on board a ship. It will take a community effort, but the Navy is committed to turning the tide by eliminating the use of synthetic drugs that have too quickly become a problem within our ranks.

Trouble grows for faltering American Legion Post 68 downfall. The American Legion Department of Washington Adjutant Dale Davis Tuesday said he was “puzzled” by the bankruptcy sale choice and that Corriea and Young are operating the post at all. Davis said both were removed from office last spring, after the state level of the non-profit veterans organization stepped in to “help.” For some time after the exposing of the lost and asyet-unaccounted for money, The department stepped in and produced a business plan to use the gambling and bar profits to revitalize the post financially. Then following the removal of post leadership, 68 filed for bankruptcy, Davis said.

Post 68 drew in an estimated $680,000 annually from the gambling receipts alone. The post has been unable to pay it’s bills for some time and Davis would only say that the money was missing or gone somehow. Correia and Young both say they do not know the total amount of money lost or specifically who stole it, though they have a prime suspect and his family. They estimate that somewhere between $200,000 and $2 million could be gone, but do not want to bail out the post’s $70,000 in unpaid mortgage with gambling proceeds. The American Legion is not about gambling and drinking. The legion is about supporting the veteran

and their families, they said. Currently, the post operates out of Correia’s house where veterans in need show up around the clock for help with any number of issues. Bremerton police confirmed that an “embezzlement” investigation was placed on the inactive list at the end of June 2011. There is a likely suspect that was a former post commander and business manager who’s wife was the bar manager and daughter the manager of pull tabs, said Bremerton Police detective Rodney Harker. “(There was) a lot of questionable financing taking place,” Harker said. “The legion has a valid complaint.” With a clear belief that “something” was going on, Harker said BPD placed

the investigation on hold until Post 68 completes and provides a full audit of the accounts, which are spread out and in shambles. Absent of the department’s concept that the leaders of Post 68 were removed, Correia and Young both say they were duly reelected for year-long terms last April in accordance with legion

policy and will continue to reorganiz the post. Both say that the state department did not follow protocol for removing them. Davis says as far as the state department is concerned Post 68 could have been better served buy using the building’s value to reorganize. The Chapter 7 sale is akin to a “fire sale” and that

the building will go for one third the value, he said. Correia said that a $300,000 loan was taken out against the building under an earlier commander and remains a huge hurdle. The department tried to intervene and force a chapter 11, but U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Marc Barreca found no precedent and allowed Young and Correia to continue with the sale. “(The building) is going to be a bargain if someone wants to buy it,” Davis said. “We tried to protect (the members),” Davis said.

But, unfortunately, somewhere in the lake there is a big bass with several hooks in his mouth who curses my children and the day their dad showed them how to cast a line. To the leech who caught a boy: Appreciation sometimes means trapping a frog and then realizing he really wants to be set free. Or, watching a bird fly away because you’ve been too noisy. And, learning that you can’t keep a butterfly. Granted, all of these lessons come at the expense of some wildlife’s peace and quiet. But education (on both sides) also comes from pain and torment inflicted BY wildlife. When Lindell chased a flock of ducks through the weeds, you, Mr. Leech, took the opportunity to feast on his little toe. Boy, were you surprised, and suddenly more educated, when you emerged from the water and realized what you had caught! I’m not sure who was more shocked: Lindell with a bloodsucking black slug on his toe, or the bloodsucker who had a screaming 4-year old boy stuck to his mouth. My bet is on the bloodsucker. – Sarah Smiley is a syndicated columnist, author and Navy wife. Her column appears weekly in the Kitsap Navy News.

Senise Tuesday said each time the movie is viewed $1 goes to the Gary Senise Foundation, which supports his mission when he cannot be there personally. Senise believes that citizen support of the troops remains vital even during the current draw down in both combat zones. The effects of multiple deployement and long years at war will remain for a long

time, he said. Senise also thinks a third world wide war remains likely for the 21st century. “It’s a dangerous world,� he said. “It’s not hard to imagine.� “(The foundation) ramps up my support without my personal presence,� he said. “I’m just trying to give back to our service members and veterans.� Senise has given himself the double mission of showing his personal gratitude to the troops and using his celebrity status from past

acting roles and his current role on CSI New York to keep the troops in front of an America that might otherwise not remember that two wars remain ongoing. Senise’s family has a long tradition of military service going back to World War I. With several in-laws having served in Viet Nam, the closest Senise has come to military service came during his playing of Lt Dan Taylor in the 1994 film “Forrest Gump.� “A disabled Viet Nam

First-of-class mobile landing platform under construction SAN DIEGO (NNS) – The Navy announced the start of construction of the first Mobile Landing Platform ship at the General Dynamics National Steel and Shipbuilding Company shipyard in San Diego, Calif., June 30. Following the successful production readiness review — an evaluation of the ship’s design maturity, availability of materials, and the shipbuilder’s ability to successfully start construction — the Secretary of the Navy certified the design and informed Congress that the design of MLP was more than 85 percent complete and ready to proceed with fabrication. MLP 1 will be the firstof-class ship, delivering a flexible platform to support the Maritime Prepositioning Ship squadrons. The Navy’s Strategic and Theater Sealift program in the Program Executive Office (PEO), Ships is procuring the vessels for the Navy. “The start of production for a first-in-class ship is a monumental milestone,” said Capt. Henry W. Stevens, Strategic and Theater Sealift program

manager. “The MLP program will benefit from the high degree of design and production-planning maturity that has already been accomplished by the Navy/ NASSCO team.” General DynamicsNASSCO was previously awarded a $115 million contract for long-lead time material and advanced design efforts for the first MLP in August 2010. The Navy worked very closely with NASSCO to identify cost savings early in MLP design work while pursuing a concurrent design and production engineering approach. These efforts minimized cost and schedule risk and resulted in a in a very stable ship design that is ready to start production. MLP will provide the core capabilities to transfer vehicles and equipment atsea and interface with surface connectors to deliver the vehicles and equipment ashore. The MLP will leverage float-on/ float-off technology and a reconfigurable mission deck to maximize capability. The platform in its basic form possess add-on mod-

ules that support a vehicle staging area, sideport ramp, large mooring fenders and up to three landing craft air cushioned vessel lanes to support its core requirements. Ship utility services support to the mission deck will enable the flexibility to incorporate potential future platform upgrades which could include additional capabilities such as berthing, medical, command and control, mission planning, vehicle transfer system, a connected replenishment, a container handling crane and an aviation operating spot. The Navy recently awarded General DynamicsNASSCO a fixed-price incentive fee type contract May 27, for the detail design and construction of the first and second ships of the class. The first ship is expected to deliver in fiscal year 2013 and be operational in fiscal year 2015. PEO Ships is responsible for the development and acquisition of U.S. Navy surface ships, and is currently managing the design and construction of 10 major surface ships classes and small boats and craft. The PEO is committed to ensuring that prior to the start of ship construction, each program completes an exhaustive production readiness review to demonstrate the design is mature and the requirements are well understood. Fully maturing the design prior to the start of construction is one of a number of initiatives the PEO is undertaking to reduce costs in shipbuilding.

Petraeus heading for D.C. WASHINGTON (AFPS) – The Senate yesterday confirmed Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, currently the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, as the next director of the CIA. Petraeus will replace Leon E. Panetta, former CIA director, who took office today as secretary of defense. During his confirmation hearing June 23, Petraeus said some observers have questioned whether his previous involvement in Afghanistan and other endeavors will color the agency’s analysis of those efforts. “Let me reassure you on this issue,” he said. “Clearly I have views on the efforts in which I’ve been engaged. I’ve shared them in the past with the agency’s analysts, and

I’ll do so in the future. However, if confirmed, when I am in the situation room with the president, I will strive to present the agency position. I will also remain keenly aware that I am the leader of an intelligence agency, not a policymaker.” According to a spokesman for NATO’s International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, Petraeus will turn over command July 18. Marine Corps Lt. Gen. John R. Allen has been nominated for promotion to general and appointment as Petraeus’ successor. Petraeus will retire from the Army on Aug. 31 and assume his new duties as central intelligence director Sept. 6, the spokesman said.

Panetta: ‘No hallow force’ WASHINGTON, AFPS – New Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta last week pledged there will be no hollow force on his watch. The secretary made the commitment in a message to the Defense Department released after he took the oath of office this morning. DOD General Counsel Jeh Johnson administered the oath in the secretary’s office. Taking the oath transferred responsibility for the department from Robert M. Gates. Panetta also pledged to be a tireless advocate for service members and their families. “You and your families will always be foremost on my mind and at the top of my agenda,” he said. The secretary will not hesitate to do what needs to be done to defend America. He also will fight for the needs “of the men and women who serve in harm’s way, and the families who support them,” he said. “Even as the United States addresses fiscal challenges at home, there will be no hollow force on my watch. That will require us all to be disciplined in how we manage taxpayer resources.” Later today, Panetta

will meet with Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn III, and participate in a “tank” meeting with the members of the Joint Chiefs, said Doug Wilson, assistant secretary of defense for public affairs. Panetta and his wife, Sylvia, also will have lunch in his Pentagon office with Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and his wife, Deborah. The secretary, who served as the director of the CIA, has been intimately involved with operations around the world since the beginning of the Obama administration. The nation is at war, he said, and must prevail against its enemies. “We will persist in our efforts to disrupt, dismantle and ultimately defeat al-Qaida,” he said. In Afghanistan, the secretary said service members must continue to work with Afghan security forces and coalition partners to transition security responsibility to the Afghans by 2014. The goal must be an Afghanistan that never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists, he said. The transition of American troops in Iraq is well under way with

more than 100,000 U.S. service members out of the nation, and 48,000 due to leave by the end of the year. The secretary has a long public service career that began as an Army intelligence officer in 1964. He also served in the House of Representatives from California, director of the Office of Management and Budget and White House chief of staff in President Clinton’s administration. Throughout his career, he said, he has focused on being disciplined with the taxpayers’ money, but not short-changing security. The secretary noted he is taking office just before Independence Day. He said his parents -- who immigrated to California from Italy -- believed it was important to give something back to their adopted country. “I will never forget my father’s words: ‘to be free, we must also be secure,’” Panetta said. “As I take on my new role, my thoughts are with you and your families. “You are making personal sacrifices to preserve our liberty, serving on front lines around the world,” he continued. “You are fighting to keep America safe. Rest assured that I will fight with you and for you.” As he was sworn in this morning, Panetta noted there’s “no higher responsibility for a secretary of defense than to protect those who are protecting America.” Panetta said that in the days and weeks ahead he will meet with all levels of military personnel and DOD civilians.

Military spouse employment program launches

WASHINGTON (AFPS) – In an effort to address military spouses’ employment challenges, the Defense Department today launched a program to expand career opportunities for military spouses worldwide, and to recognize the skills and talents they bring to the employment table. Flanked by military spouses and corporate leaders, top government and military officials unveiled the Military Spouse Employment Partnership during a ceremony at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce here. The partnership encompasses more than 70 employers who have committed to opening their doors to spouse employment. In remarks at the event, Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, lauded military spouses for their service and sacrifice as they juggle households, children, volunteer work and jobs -- many times in the midst of deployments. Due to their ability to thrive despite multiple challenges and demands, she noted, military spouses possess the qualities highly sought after by employers, such as dedication, flexibility, a strong work ethic and “endless energy.” “If you’re looking for hard-working, highly skilled and educated, dedicated employees,” Biden said, “our military spouses are precisely the employees you need. “Every day our military spouses are giving back to our country,” she added. “While their loved ones are called to serve, they serve right alongside them. Now we must serve them as well as they serve us.” Deborah Mullen, who was accompanied to the

event by her husband, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, acknowledged the difficulties military spouses face in finding jobs. Many spouses, she noted, are turned away for jobs, not due to their qualifications or training, but due to the frequent moves their service member spouse is required to make. “More than one spouse has told me, ‘All I wanted was to get in the door to be able to be judged on my merits, my qualifications and my strengths,” she said. But in many cases, she noted, they are unable to even score an interview. “They aren’t asking of rules to be broken or regulations to be cast aside,” she said. “They know the economy is tough out there … This isn’t about entitlement for them; this is about opportunity. “Military spouses just want the same shot as everyone else,” she added. Only 1 percent of the nation serves, comprising about 2.2 million service members, Mullen said, and about half of them are married to someone seeking a job. And most of those job seekers are women, she noted, “educated resilient, serious women who possess strong values and even stronger work ethic.” The partnership launched today signifies a positive step toward employing these highly skilled spouses, Biden said. “We’re making it a little easier for them to find work, and perhaps a little less frightening for new employers to take that gamble and find the talent so resident in our ranks,” she said. But the work is just beginning, Biden noted. Today, the Defense Department launches the

MCNEELEY partnership, she said, and “tomorrow, we must make that partnership work.” Dr. Clifford L. Stanley, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, lauded the partnership, noting that programs like this didn’t exist when he joined the Marine Corps in the 1960s. He recalled a time when he and his wife had to watch their spending, unsure of whether or not she’d have a job at the next duty station. Today, there’s an abundance of programs aimed at supporting military families, and their welfare is taken into consideration at every level of command, Stanley said. The partnership is a significant commitment toward that military family care and, he added, “a big deal” for spouses and employers. The event also marked the inclusion of 15 new employers who signed onto the partnership today. Leaders from each com-

pany stepped forward to sign a statement of support, signifying a pledge to: -- Increase employment opportunities for military spouses, while maintaining employment for relocating spouses; -- Provide career promotion opportunities for military spouses who are excelling at their jobs; -- Ensure pay equity for military spouses commensurate with their level of training, work experience, accomplishments and credentials; and -- Spread the word about spousal support throughout the military and corporate America. Partners also are pledging to post job opportunities on the Military Spouse Employment Partnership Web portal located on OurMilitary.mil at http:// www.ourmilitary.mil. The partnership program evolved from the Army Spouse Employment Program, through which

GITMO ruby youth stateside

GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA (NNS) – A rugby team sponsored by the Guantanamo Bay Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) and Child and Youth Program departed Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for a nationwide rugby tournament, June 30. Thirteen students from W.T. Sampson High School will play against topranked rugby teams from

around the country in the Cape Fear 7s Tournament held in Wilmington, N.C., July 2-3. Steve Lynch, MWR’s rugby team head coach, has played rugby for more than 22 years and will meet the team in North Carolina to coach them for this tournament. “I think the reason I’ve got such a great turn out and I’ve got all of the best athletes on the base is

because they see this as an opportunity to really shine,” said Lynch. An Army veteran, Lynch played rugby professionally, collegiately, and while serving in the military. After separating from active duty, he started several rugby programs in Florida and in Guantanamo Bay. “Rugby is different from anything else most Americans have played,”

said Lynch. “It brings a sport that people don’t understand into a level of consciousness.” Rugby is a mix of intense American football and the endurance of soccer, explained Lynch. “Rugby is a great sport,” said Tim Derepentigny, team member. “I love it and I look forward to playing rugby for a long, long time.”

more than 100,000 military spouses have been hired since 2003, explained Robert L. Gordon III, deputy assistant secretary of defense for military community and family policy. “As [this program] continues to grow, just think about what this partnership can do for our spouses, for our military,” he said. Retired Army Brig. Gen. Gary Profit, senior director of military recruiting for Walmart, one of the program’s partners, noted the importance of caring for

military families in all sectors of society. “As a retired Army officer, and with a spouse that followed me around the world for 31 years, it’s an opportunity to give back to those with whom we had the privilege of serving,” he said of the partnership. “It’s an important public and private partnership we have to honor the service and sacrifice of military spouses who have served very much as their uniformed member serves.” Military spouses also voiced their approval of the program. “It will make our lives as military spouses so much easier, because right before you move, there’s that ramp up of getting that resume ready and all that on top of moving,” said Kristi Hamrick, an Air Force spouse who has moved 11 times in 17 years. “If you can get a job where you have another job waiting on the other end … that would reduce so much stress.” “I’m overwhelmed,” added Jennifer Pilcher, wife of Navy Cmdr. Eddie Pilcher. “I truly think it’s the first time in history that the military spouse has been recognized. To sit here and hear the program is for us is overwhelming and exciting.”


Decks covered with proof of battle Seven battle stars for unsinkable battleship Kitsap Navy News

Sailors died on the blood-streaked decks of the USS Colorado from kamikaze attack or accidental firing, but the ship soldiered on to the end of World War II and eventually acted as a metal “Magic Carpet.” The battleship USS Colorado (BB45) was the third ship named for the Rocky Mountain state. The sixty-two foot long behemoth was built at New York Shipbuilding Company in Camden, N.J. And commissioned on Aug. 30, 1923. The ship weighed around 32,600 tons, was more than 97 feet abreast and had a draft of 30 feet, 6 inches. The ship could steam at 21 knots and held a crew of 1,080 men. It’s deck was crammed with firepower, sporting around eight, 16-inch guns; a dozen 5-inch guns, eight 3-inch guns, and two 21-inch torpedo tubes. It was the lead ship of its class.

The Colorado sailed from New York City, N.Y., on Dec. 29, 1923 for a maiden voyage to Portsmouth England, Villefranche, France; Naples, Italy; and it also traipsed past the Straight of Gibraltar. It returned to New York on Feb. 15, 1924 and then sailed to San Francisco, arriving there in September. From 1924 to 1941, Colorado operated with the Pacific Fleet amid sailing to the East Coast and Caribbean from time to time. In 1925-1926, the battleship steamed to Australia and New Zealand to “wave the flag.” Other notable events of the timeframe included assisting in earthquake relief at Long Beach, Calif., in March 1933 and also helping search for missing American aviatrix Amelia Earhart during a NROTC cruise in 1937. The ship was based at Pearl Harbor for the first five months of

1941, but then steamed to Puget Sound Navy Yard on June 25, 1941 for an overhaul which lasted through March 31, 1942. Then she was cast into the roiling Pacific and World War II. She first operated in the Fiji Islands and New Hebrides from November 1942 to September 1943 with a main mission of stopping further Japanese expansion. She helped in previous bombardment around Tarawa in fall 1943, but then returned to the West Coast for a short overhaul. By January 1944, she was sortied to the Marshall Islands for pre-invasion bombardment and gunfire support for thrusts inland at Kwajalein and Eniwetok. On Feb. 23, 1944, the ship again headed for Bremerton’s shipyard for a major overhaul. The ship then joined a number of other Navy vessels in San Francisco The USS Colorado under full steam during trials following her Aug. 30, on May 5, 1944 and headed for 1923 commissioning U.S. NAVAL HISTORICAL CENTER PHOTOGRAPH Saipan, Guam and Tinian for softening up of beaches for Summer Splash! pending Allied $ 65 1 hour Massage invasions.

was back in Leyte Gulf to support American fighting troops who had streamed ashore. The ship’s fighting luck ran out a week later, when two kamikazes careened from the skies and hit the ship, killing 19 sailors, wounding 72 and causing damage to the ship’s decks. Though battered, the ship managed to meet a pre-planned obligation: the bombardment of Mindoro, Philippines. This occurred for several days before the ship was forced to retire to Manus Island for emergency repairs. By New Years Day 1945, the ship was off Luzon preparing to take part in the bombardments of Lingayen Gulf. Misfortune again struck the battlewagon on Jan. 9, 1945, when “accidental gunfire” hit her superstructure, killing 18 crew and wounding 51.

By March 1945, the ship was marshaling with a massive Allied force with one intent: the invasion and taking of Okinawa. The ship would remain in the area with her guns blazing until May 22, when ordered to return to Leyte Gulf. Following the end of the war, she arrived in Seattle for the city’s Navy Day celebration on Oct. 27. Similar to the fate of most large ships, she was assigned “Magic Carpet” duty – returning stateside, the many sailors, soldiers, airmen and Marines stationed overseas. She would make three runs to Pearl Harbor to transport 6,357 veterans home to loved ones and friends. She would then make one final journey to Bremerton’s Navy Yard for inactivation. The USS Colorado was placed out of commission in reserve on Jan. 7, 1947 and lay fallow for a dozen years before being sold for scrap in 1959.
