Working against Bremerton’s veteran unemployment By JJ Swanson jswanson@soundpublishing.com

Bremerton Goodwill workers are the next contenders in the effort to counter a growing veteran unemployment problem. “Our approach is very holistic,” said Amy Olson, site manager for the Bremerton branch’s Job Training and Education. Goodwill’s strategy is much the same as the military itself, build the whole person

Military spouses open to pursue licensed work By JJ Swanson jswanson@kitsapnavynews.com

New state legislation will help military spouses transfer their out-of-state professional licenses so that they have a better shot at employment when they relocate to Washington. Gov. Chris Gregoire signed Senate Bill 5969 into law on Dec. 20. The bill requires that licensing agencies expedite licenses for military spouses moving to Washington for a new duty station as long as they meet minimum requirements for their profession in another state. Professions that require licenses or certificates include nurses, engineers, hairdressers, accountants and teach-

ers. In other words, a nurse from Norfolk can still work as a nurse in Bremerton without waiting through all the red tape. Kitsap County military spouses are delighted to hear the news while some licensing agencies are unsure of what specific changes will come. “This should have been done a long time ago,” said Joey Price, president of the Navy Wives Club No. 46 in Bremerton. Price, who was a Navy wife for most of her life, moved with her husband to countless duty stations before settling in the county. She said that licensing obstacles and career mobility shaped her career

choices. She took secretarial work as an accountant’s assistant rather than become a certified public accountant because “it was better not to be certified, no licensing worries, you could take that anywhere.” “It really is a pain for young Navy families moving constantly from state-to-state,” said Price. She commented that many families simply can’t afford for the wife to go back to school to re-qualify for a job that she was already doing in another state. Eva Craven, a Navy spouse from Silverdale, said that she has was limited by licensing when moving to

Final sortie of Iraq war launched and recovered by local carrier USS JOHN C. STENNIS, At Sea (NNS) – John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group and its associated Carrier Air Wing 9 launched the Navy’s final air sortie over Iraq Dec. 18, effectively ending naval support for Operation New Dawn. The final command and control mission for U.S. forces over Iraq was flown by an E-2C Hawkeye from the “Golden Hawks� of Airborne Early Warning Squadron 112. The crew of five launched from Stennis at 7:32 a.m. and returned at

11:04 a.m. “I think all of us went up to the flight deck focused on executing our assigned mission,� said Lt. Cmdr. Jeff Reynolds, a pilot aboard the last flight. “We knew that we might be the crew to fly the last mission over Iraq. As always, we stayed focused on completing the mission we were assigned. After confirmation that we were the last, I realized I was part of something pretty special.� According to Rear Adm. Craig Faller, commander, the mission

came after two decades of combat missions flown in support of operations Desert Storm, Southern Watch, Iraqi Freedom and finally, New Dawn. “Navy air presence has been absolutely essential to Operation New Dawn, and the overall military mission in Iraq,� said Faller. Although the Navy’s air support mission in Iraqi airspace has drawn to a close, Navy airpower continues supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan as well as other operations in the region. Carrier strike groups will continue to maintain a forward presence in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. “I believe that John C. Stennis and Nimitz class carriers are the world’s pre-eminent arbitrators of peace and stability,� said Capt. Ronald Reis, commanding officer of John C. Stennis. Stennis departed from Bremerton on July 25, and has been operating in the 5th and 7th Fleet areas in direct support of operations New Dawn and Enduring Freedom.


Local sailors and Marines collecting toys for tots SILVERDALE (NNS) – sailors and Marines, assigned to Marine Corps Security Forces Battalion on Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor are participating in the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in Silverdale The service members are

collecting new, unwrapped toys and donations at various locations throughout Silverdale. Some are volunteering their time to stand by collection boxes inside the Kitsap Mall, and toy drop stations are scattered around the bases and com-

munity. “It’s strictly a volunteer thing. It’s a lot Marines volunteering their time to actually go out and help collect toys and other donations to help families here in the local county and to give a Christmas to the kids

out here.” said Marine Sgt. Nicholas Weidner, MCSFBn volunteer coordinator. According the Toys for Tots website, the purpose of the program is to help less fortunate children experience the joy of Christmas and to unite all members of local communities in a common cause. The goal is to deliver a message of hope to the children receiving the new toy and help them in becoming responsible, productive and patriotic citizens. “We like to give back,” said Weidner. “The Marines and sailors want to volunteer their time doing something and we have a lot of

opportunities, but this is one around the holidays that we can really help the people that need the help. “Last year we got 12,000 [toys], and we are going to do what we can to beat that,” said Wiedner. sailors assigned to Naval Branch Health Clinic Bangor also volunteered their time to at the collection boxes inside the Kitsap Mall. Hospitalman Ashbey Dominguez, assigned to NBHC Bangor, said it’s a nice feeling helping out Toys for Tots during the holiday season. “I grew up really poor before I moved here and

joined the military, and no one really gave me things for the holidays,” said Dominguez. “Here, Toys for Tots helps a lot of kids out. It’s Christmas; they all should get presents, so they can find out that people here really do care.” The collected toys will be distributed at the Toys for Tots distribution party at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds Presidents Hall, Dec. 17. Toys for Tots began in 1947 when a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children.

Run, run , Contract to hanlde ERB s randier run Scores take park in Indian Island run BREMERTON (NNS) – Braving the cold, Dec. 10, more than 100 participants of all ages came out to Naval Magazine Indian Island for the first ever Rain Deer Run. “It was great to see our friends and neighbors enjoying themselves at the run,” said Cmdr. Gary Martin, commanding officer of NAVMAG Indian Island. “This was the first of what I hope will be many annual Rain Deer Runs.” Participants ran and walked either a one-mile or 5K route along the roads on the southern end of the base while Christmas music played from a speaker system. Many runners displayed their holiday spirit by wearing red and green, and some even donned reindeer antlers and Santa hats. “I’ve ran 12 other runs so far this year,” said George Continola, the overall winner for the one-mile race, with a time of 7:55. “This was a great run. Nice, smooth roads on a beautiful base and it was a really nice day.” Overall winner for the 5K race was Naval Submarine Support Center, Bangor Chaplain Lt. Mark Cook, who finished with a time of 18:09. Cook, who was also the overall 5K winner for Deer Run

in July, was able to shave off more than one minute from his Deer Run time. During Rain Deer Run, Navy Region Northwest Morale, Welfare and Recreation debuted newlydesigned award medals. The new medals have the installation logo printed in color on one side and information about the race engraved on the other. The new medals were received with such positive feedback that they will be used at future fitness events. “We wanted to do something particularly nice to commemorate the inaugural Rain Deer Run,” said Naval Base Kitsap Fitness Manager Julia Krassin. “In the spirit of the holiday season, we tied them into Christmas tree ornaments before they were presented to the winners.” The top three male and female finishers of each age group for both the 5K and one-mile races were awarded a medal. “We live next to Indian Island and appreciate being able to go there and see it. A special thanks goes out to the base commander who made it possible and cheered us on as we approached the finish,” said Ann and Larry Panush of Port Hadlock in a note to the Navy. “We look forward to participating in your future events.”

History making flight It nothing short of awesome that the USS John C. Stennis was the launch and recovery platform for the “last” sortie of the Iraq war ending 21 years of Americans patrolling Iraqi airspace. Only time will tell if history accepts the Stennis, in its role, as it now does the USS Okinawa as one of the great images that illustrate the end of the Vietnam War with sailors pushing Huey off the fantail of the amphibious assault ship. According to the Wall Street Journal, the last flight out of Iraq, that left from the ground was a C-17, named Spirit of Golden Gate” that carried 62 airmen into Kuwait that day. Images from that occasion could join the naval images that will one day tell of that war’s end. Along with the hummer that GREG launched from the Stennis’ deck SKINNER were 45 aircraft of all sorts including drones, fighters, tankers and Army helicopters covered the airspace for the withdrawing maneuvers of the Army’s 1st Calvary Division, the last ones out by ground. That hawkeye had an historical task to both control the airspace full of coalition friendlies and watch the 1st Cavalry’s route below for threats all in effort to ensure a quiet and honorable departure from a military perspective. The exit over-watched by the hawkeye’s crew this month was a far cry from the historical memory created by the April 1975 Hubert van Es photo of a single Air America helicopter atop the Saigon CIA station with scores of evacuees scrambling for the 12 seats aboard as the city is engulfed by the north.

Lindell, the sun also rises I have a history of not waking up on time. The problem started when I was a teenager, and everyone thought it was just a phase. “She’ll grow out of it,” they said. “What teenager gets up early anyway?” By my 20s, however, it was clear that I am, by nature, not a morning person. I went through several alarm clocks trying to find the perfect one. Nothing worked. The only solution seemed to be setting an alarm 30 minutes earlier than I actually had to wake up. Then I could hit snooze six different times. This greatly annoyed my then-new NavalAcademy-trained husband, who can wake up to the faintest of wrist-watch alarms at 4 a.m. if he has to. At our first apartment in Florida, Dustin liked to wake me up by saying, “Sarah, hurry! Wake up! There’s a roach crawling across your face.” Even this didn’t always work. Once, Dustin gave me a natural light alarm clock for Christmas. He was so optimistic! The clock promised to slowly lighten the room, mimicking a sunrise, and boasted the sound of quietly chirping birds that would rise in song and chatter the longer the alarm went ignored. “This will be a really peaceful way to wake up,” Dustin said. And it was peaceful for me, because I never heard the birds or noticed the light. Dustin however, would crawl over me, cursing under his breath, and smack the alarm’s off button. “How can you not hear those birds?” he’d yell. “And the lights? It’s like an aviary in here.”

When I had my first child at age 24, everyone thought my AVY sleepy-morning days were over. No more hitting snooze. No ISE more asking people not to talk to me for 30 minutes and until I ARAH had eaten my morning cereal in MILEY total silence. A baby, they said, would not put up with these things. And, as fate would have it, my first baby is, and continues to be, a person who does his best thinking before the sun comes up. Unlike most children who do their homework after school, Ford saves his to do at 5 o’clock the next morning. When Ford was a baby, I could hear my mother and grandmother laughing at me, even though they were several states away. However, an infant doesn’t ask you to talk in the morning. An infant doesn’t expect you to be cheerful. Indeed, an infant usually takes his first nap by 9 or 10 a.m. I could manage this. And I did. My next two babies, Owen and Lindell, are not morning people. They are either blessed or cursed (take your pick) with the ability to pretend mornings don’t even happen. In fact, until last week, Lindell wasn’t aware that the sun rises. He had seen it set, but it had always just been there again, like a light left on, when he opened his eyes 20 minutes before school.

Reservist asks First Lady to 2012 Marine Corps Ball WASHINGTON (AFPS) – When it comes to a date for next year’s Marine Corps Ball, Lance Cpl. Aaron Leeks is starting early and setting his sights high. At a Toys for Tots event on Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling here last week, the Marine reservist asked First Lady Michelle Obama to be his date at the ball next November -- with her husband’s permission, of course. The Marine reportedly made his move while the first lady was helping Marines and Toys for Tots volunteers sort through hundreds of toys donated by the White House staff. The 60-yearold program, run by the Marine Corps Reserve, collects toys to donate to needy children. After he asked her to accompany him, Obama smiled and responded “I’d love to,� according to news reports, and brought over an aide to get his information. The reservist, who is assigned to the joint base, is slated to deploy to

Afghanistan next month, but said he plans to return for the ball. If her husband approves and she’s able to attend that night, the first lady will be taking a recent Marine Corps celebrity date trend to a whole new level. Last summer, while deployed in Afghanistan, Marine Corps Sgt. Scott Moore took to YouTube to ask out actress Mila Kunis. She accepted and accompanied Moore to a Marine Corps Ball on Nov. 18 in Greenville, N.C. Following in Moore’s footsteps, Marine Corps Cpl. Kelsey De Santis extended a YouTube invitation to pop star and actor Justin Timberlake in July. They attended the Basic School Instructor Battalion 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Richmond, Va., on Nov. 12. In a blog post, Timberlake called it “one of the most moving evenings� he’s ever had. “I felt so proud to be there,� he wrote. “I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes.�

Defense says no to bullying ‘Any single case of hazing or inappropriate conduct to a fellow soldier, airman, Marine, sailor [or] Coast Guardsman is inappropriate and not acceptable’ WASHINGTON (AFPS) – A senior Pentagon official Wednesday underscored the military’s “zero tolerance� against bullying and hazing in light of charges brought against eight service members. Speaking at a Pentagon news briefing, Navy Capt. John Kirby offered condolences to the family of Army Pvt. Danny Chen, who was found dead in October from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in Afghanistan where he was deployed. The government Wednesday charged eight soldiers in Chen’s unit with being involved in his death, although officials won’t say how. “Our thoughts and prayers certainly go out to the family here,� said Kirby, deputy assistant secretary of defense for media opera-

tions. “This is a tragic, tragic incident.� Kirby declined to discuss the Chen case, but underscored that bullying and hazing are never tolerated by service members. “Any single case of hazing or inappropriate conduct to a fellow soldier, airman, Marine, sailor [or] Coast Guardsman is inappropriate and not acceptable,� he said. “Zero is the right number. “We treat each other with dignity and respect – that’s what this uniform requires,� he added. “When we don’t, there’s a justice system in place to deal with it. And that’s what we’re seeing here in the case of Private Chen.� Kirby said hazing is not tolerated in the military and “if it’s found and it’s proven – it’s dealt with.� “This is something inculcated in our culture

from the moment you join the service,â€? he noted. “From the moment you raise your right hand through all your basic training and your first tours of duty, these notions are bred into you in the military. “We treat each other with respect and dignity or we go home – that’s it,â€? Kirby said pointedly. “The tolerance is absolutely zero and the system itself, because it works and works well, is in fact, a deterrent to future behavior.â€? Kirby noted there are still “miscreantsâ€? who want to defy military regulations, and reiterated “when it’s found [and] proven, it’s dealt with.â€? Kirby also cited “training mechanismsâ€? in place throughout all the services designed to help curb these types of incidents. “Whether you’re an officer or enlisted, this is something bred into you when you come into the service,â€? he said. “Unfortunately, you’re never going to be 100 percent perfect in this,â€? Kirby said. “And there’s going to be those few who want to flaunt what the uniform stands for and what the regulations require ‌ when that happens they’re going to be dealt with.â€?

DOD at ‘turning point’ following historic year WASHINGTON (AFPS) The military is at a turning point following a remarkable and historic year, Defense Department officials said today. “If you look back, you see Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Arab Spring, Operation Tomodachi and many other national security events,” Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said during a news briefing. “I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that this year has also seen the demise of Osama bin Laden and the

decline of al-Qaida,” he added. “And the increased pressure on [al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula], to include the loss of Anwar al-Awlaki to that terrorist group.” Such changes led Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta recently to say the department is at a “turning point,” Little noted. “2012 is likely to bring opportunities for the United States military, and for all Americans,” he said. The United States is “seeing successful transition efforts in

Afghanistan” and “building a new relationship with Iraq” following the departure of the last U.S. combat troops there, Little said. But that doesn’t mean relations end in those areas, he said. “The secretary [of defense] has made it clear that we are going to maintain a presence in the Middle East … that’s going to protect our interests and those of our allies in the region,” Little said. Navy Capt. John Kirby, deputy assistant secre-

Navy adjusts Purple Heart award policy WASHINGTON (NNS) -In response to advances in the diagnosis and treatment of mild traumatic brain injuries, the secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) discussed updates to the standards and procedures for awarding the Purple Heart Dec. 15, one of the military’s most recognized awards. “In light of recent research, military neu-

rologists have discovered the scope of mild traumatic brain injuries is wider than previously thought,” said SECNAV Ray Mabus. “Wounds suffered while defending our nation, whether seen or unseen, deserve our utmost gratitude and respect.” The standards provided in the ALNAV message are consistent with historic standards and previ-

ous awards of the Purple Heart since World War II, when the award was first authorized for the Navy and Marine Corps. “Sailors and Marines may be awarded the Purple Heart for certain mild traumatic brain injuries that were caused by enemy action” explained Jim Nierle, president, Navy Department Board of Decorations and Medals.

tary of defense for media operations, emphasized no final decisions have been made about troop posture in the Middle East. “We are still working through what the postIraq regional presence is going to be,” he said. “So there’s been no final decisions made about where any residual forces may stay, or for how long they will stay.” Little lauded Army Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, the final commander of U.S. Forces-Iraq, and his troops for implementing

“If they suffered a loss of consciousness, or had to be given the disposition of ‘not fit for full duty’ by a medical officer for a period greater than 48 hours after a concussive event, they may qualify for the Purple Heart.” Purple Hearts awarded for MTBI will continue to meet the historical standards of severity applied to all types of wounds, ensuring the prestige of the award is maintained. Applying these standards to MTBI, the concussive event must have been caused either directly or indirectly by an enemy action with intent to kill or maim.

a successful drawdown of forces in Iraq. “I would note that this was the most successful logistical drawdown in U.S. military history,” he said. “And General Austin and the men and women in uniform who carried that out deserve tremendous praise.” Little expressed grati-

LICENSED | FROM PAGE 1 Kitsap County. Delays in her cosmetology license forced her to take interim work as an aerobics instructor and sales clerk during the holidays. “I’m a cosmetologist, but I couldn’t take my first job with me. I knew I didn’t want to be jobless when moved here; back then we really needed the money,” said Craven. Two incomes are becoming increasingly important for the military family, according to Deborah Delisle, National Military Family coordinator. “And aside from the money, which is important, some spouses also need to work on their careers when their husband is deployed, even for their own feeling of self-worth and selfesteem,” said Delisle. The major licensing agencies in Washington state have pledged to expedite military licenses and some already have reciprocity in place, according to Mark San Souci, Northwest Region Liaison for the Department of Defense. Nurses working at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton are licensed through the state’s Department of Health which has a deadline of March 13 to make licensing considerations for military spouses in health care professions, according to Bob Nicoloff, executive director of the department. “Starting now, we’ll be looking at the process for each type of license and evaluate if changes need to be made,” said Nicoloff. What the specific changes may be remains the question. “As far as the nursing commission goes, we are already expedited.

It’s unclear how we can be more expeditious,” said Terry West, deputy executive director of the Washington state Nursing Commission. One change that the department is considering is adding an extra check box on their applications to identify the applicant as a military spouse so that “they can be put at the top of the pile for nursing licenses,” according to West. Expediting engineer licensing for military spouses is also “a little trickier” according to Christine Anthony, spokesperson for the Department of Licensing. “If you’re an engineer that wants to be licensed in this state. We have additional requirements, and I don’t think those would be changed,” said Anthony. Such requirements include eight years of engineering experience approved by the Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors and passing the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, required by most but not all states outside of Washington. Legislation will not apply to military spouses who are lawyers since attorneys are licensed by the Washington State Supreme Court, according to Judy Berrett, director of communications for the Washington State Bar Association. For now, agencies will be making changes on an honor system, while working to respect the mandates imposed by the new law. “We have to believe in the agencies to do the right thing, or trust the legislative oversight that comes later in the year,” said San Souci.

UNEMPLOYMENT | FROM PAGE 1

Goodwill steps up against the second highest rate in the state rather than just teach job skills. Kitsap County has the second highest rate of veteran unemployment in the state, according to Elizabeth Scott, regional labor economist. “We’ve got a substantial military population in this county, we should be able to create an employment base that can benefit from that,” said Fred Scheffler, outgoing chairman of the Kitsap County Veterans Advisory Board. However, Reginald Deriso, an Airforce veteran employed by Goodwill as an instructor, knows that veterans have more to overcome than just learning to use computers or writing resumes. Sometimes the barrier is about a lifestyle change, he said. “Most vets have only known the military life as adults; some came in right out of high school and never had a job before getting a steady paycheck from the military,” said Deriso. Deriso teaches

According to the instructor, fellow veterans most often ask for his help in translating their military experience to actual job skills. The Bremerton location has completed one training cycle to date. During the first session, all the classes were filled and the most sought after class was Internet job search followed by cashiering. “Retail work in Kitsap is certainly an opportunity,” said Scheffler, who served for decades developing shopping centers around the country for Nordstrom. “But the only way to have retail jobs is to have people with money to spend, which is not the case now.” Scheffler said that

U.S. and South Korea look north following Kim’s death WASHINGTON (AFPS) – U.S. officials are carefully watching the situation on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of news that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il has died. Kim died Saturday of a massive heart attack, according to a North Korean government release. Kim Jong-eun, the “Dear Leader’s” youngest son, is expected to replace him. President Barack Obama consulted with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak last night. They discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula following the death of Kim Jong-il, according to a White House read-out of the call. “The president reaffirmed the United States’ strong commitment to the stability of the Korean Peninsula and the security of our close ally, the Republic of Korea,” according to the read out. “The two leaders agreed to stay in close touch as the situation develops and agreed they would direct their national security teams to continue close coordination.” U.S. leaders have been in constant contact with South Korean and Japanese allies since Kim’s death was announced,

White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters traveling with him in Germany that the allies have not seen any change “in North Korean behavior of a nature that would alarm us.” Speaking broadly, the general said he is concerned about the transition, but there have been no changes to the alert readiness for U.S. forces on the peninsula. South Korean officials announced their armed forces are on a higher level of alert. U.S. and South Korean leaders quickly established a network “to discuss this issue and to determine what we could do to contribute to understanding what might happen next,” Dempsey said. “It is my expectation … that he will be the successor,” the chairman said. “We’ve gone to significant effort to understand, and I would only say at this point that he is young to be put in this position and we will have to see if it, in fact, is him and how he reacts to the burden of governance that he hasn’t had to deal with before.” Kim Jong-il took over from his father Kim

Il-sung in 1994. It was the first case of a son taking over for a father in a communist nation. In 2010, he announced his youngest son would succeed him. North Korea has developed nuclear weapons and missile technology, U.S. officials have said. It is a pariah among nations in that it has actively sought to export nuclear and missile technology even as up to a million North Koreans are believed to have starved to death.

‘Old Salt’ passed down from Mullen NORFOLK (NNS) – The “Old Salt� designation, honoring the Navy’s Surface Warfare Officer serving on active duty with the earliest Officer of the Deck fleet qualification, changed hands during a ceremony aboard USS San Antonio at Naval Station Norfolk, Dec. 16. The qualification passed from retired Adm. Mike Mullen to Adm. John C. Harvey, Jr., commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command. The “Old Salt� award was initiated in 1988, by the Surface Navy Association and is accompanied by a bronze statue depicting a World War II naval officer on the pitching deck of a ship. The statue is cast from metal salvaged from historic U.S. naval ships, most notably the battleship USS Maine, which exploded and sank in Havana Harbor in 1898, precipitating the Spanish-American War. Mullen held the award since 2007, and recently retired as the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. Mullen was unable to attend the ceremony, so retired Vice Adm. Hank Giffin, East Coast vice president of the Surface Navy Association passed the “Old Salt� designation to Harvey, who earned his OOD letter in 1977 aboard USS Bainbridge. “We have had 14 “Old Salts� since 1988, and

today we recognize our number 15,� said Giffin. “This award reflects the ideal of the Surface Navy and the tradition of our heritage.� During the presentation Harvey spoke about the importance of those around him through the years that contributed to his success and reasoning for staying in the Navy for as long as he has. “As much as things have changed since June 6, 1973, the most important thing that is unchanged has been people like you, the Sailors, chiefs, and officers who have dedicated themselves for four years or 40,� said Harvey. “You come through for your ship, Navy, and nation.� After the presentation Harvey reflected on his past as a young OOD on board USS Bainbridge. “I remember when I first qualified; we were in the Gulf of Thailand working with USS Constellation and 14 other ships in tough formations, and I can remember very well those long watches during those intense period of activities,� said Harvey. As the ceremony came to a conclusion on the San Antonio, some of the junior officers spoke about the impact Harvey’s message had on them. “It’s amazing to imagine that Adm. Harvey

was in my shoes, and to be part of the tradition that he is speaking of is really nice,� said Ensign Nick Artabazon, USS San Antonio. The custodian of the “Old Salt� upon his or her retirement passes the responsibility to instill the ideals of the Surface Warfare Community, the core values of the Navy, and the tradition of the surface warrior to the next “Old Salt,� and a miniature replica of the statue is presented to each “Old Salt� as he or she retires. Previous holders of the “Old Salt� award were Adm. Lee Baggett, Jr.; Rear Adm. Lawrence Layman; Vice Adm. Albert J. Herberger; Vice Adm. Joseph S. Donnell III; Adm. David E. Jeremiah; Vice Adm. David M. Bennett; Vice Adm. Philip M. Quast; Rear Adm. George F. A. Wagner; Rear Adm. George A. Huchting; Rear Adm. Dennis R. Conley; Rear Adm. James B. Ferguson III; Vice Adm. James F. Amerault and Vice Adm. Rodney Rempt. Then Secretary of the Navy Gordon England administers the Oath of Office to Adm.

Yester day ’s Fleet

USS Griswold fought like a devil for 30 months Small destroyer escort fended off all enemies, earning three battle stars The destroyer escort USS Griswold (DE-7) had a unique beginning, commissioned on the day it was launched April 28, 1943. After shakedown in the Bermudas, the 289-foot ship headed for the Pacific theatre, arriving in Bora Bora in the Society Islands via Norfolk and the Panama Canal July 23, 1943. The pocket-sized 1,140-ton ship was 35 feet abreast, drafting a mere 12 feet. It was relatively slow at 21 knots and was manned by 156 men. The ship’s weaponry was three 3-inch guns; four 1.1-inch guns; nine 20

mm guns and 11 depth charge stations. The ship was immediately pressed into escort service to the South Pacific until April 1944. On Sept. 12, the ship began a relentless 4-hour attack on a Japanese submarine off Guadalcanal, and although much debris and oil rose to the roiling surface, the destroyer’s crew was not credited with a kill. Three months later, the crew would get their first submarine kill. On Dec. 23, patrolling off Lunga Point, Guadalcanal, the ship was investigating a peri-

scope sighting when its sonar operators picked up a definite contact. For five hours, the Griswold’s crew doggedly tracked the submarine. After a sixth and seventh attack, tell-tale oil slicks and air bubbles rose to the surface. It was 3 a.m. on Christmas Eve when a periscope poked out of the water and the Griswold charged in with an eighth and final assault. Laying down a barrage of 12 depth charges, this time a heavy oil slick and debris rose to the surface and the crew of the destroyer escort was later credited with sinking the Japanese submarine I-39. After overhaul at Mare Island Naval Shipyard, the ship was back in the Pacific theatre June 3, 1944, for escort duty out of Pearl Harbor which would run well into 1945. From March until May 1945, the ship remained at Eniwetok as flagship for commander, Task Group 96.3. Griswold would move to the front May 27, 1945, off Okinawa, taking up station as an ASW screen. The ship would be credited with two suicide kills: May 31 and another on June 5. On

the second attack, the Japanese pilot bent on harakiri crash landed so close to the ship that fragments from his shattering airplane showered the U.S. Navy ship. On June 29, Griswold departed Okinawa for the Leyte Gulf for escort and convoy screening. At war’s end, the USS Griswold steamed triumphantly into Tokyo Bay, anchoring on Sept. 10. The ship embarked passen-

gers for the United States and arrived at San Pedro, Calif., Oct. 8 Eniwetok and Pearl Harbor. Griswold was decommissioned in San Pedro Nov. 19, 1945, and was struck from the Navy list Dec. 5, 1945, the short two-andone-half year history complete. The hulk was sold to Dulien Steel Products of Seattle for scrapping Nov. 27, 1946. The ship received three battle stars for service in World War II.

Navy disrupts pirates off East Africa USS PINCKNEY, Gulf of Aden (NNS) -- Guidedmissile destroyer USS Pinckney disrupted a group of suspected pirates close to the Internationally Recommended Transit Corridor, south of Yemen, Dec. 19. The Merchant Shipping Industry Best Management Practices, Version 4 (BMPv4) encourages merchant vessels to register with the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Organization while transiting areas known to be high risk for piracy. At approximately 8:40 a.m., the Motor Vessel Nordic Apollo reported to the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Organization they were under attack and been fired upon by pirates from a skiff. Having registered their route with UKMTO in accordance with BMPv4, Nordic Apollo’s position was relayed to counterpiracy forces operating in the region. At approximately 11 a.m., the M/V Heather, operating 30 nautical miles from Nordic Apollo, reported suspicious activity by a skiff. Pakistan Navy Rear Adm. Kaleem Shaukat, CTF 151’s commander, authorized Pinckney to investigate. Nordic Apollo confirmed the pirate attack, but stated they no longer had sight of the skiff. In response to the distress call, Pinckney made best speed to the area, issued a radio warning to other vessels in the vicinity, and launched its MH-60R helicopter. The helicopter crew successfully tracked and located the skiff, observing nine suspected pirates and pirate paraphernalia on board, including several ladders, weapons and fuel containers. The suspected pirates were seen attempting to cover their weapons

with blankets and throwing the ladders overboard as Pinckney closed their position. Intercepted by the helicopter and Pinckney, the skiff stopped and the suspected pirates threw their weapons, identified as five AK-47 rifles, one rocket propelled grenade (RPG) launcher and three RPG rounds, overboard. Pinckney was given authorization to conduct a boarding using their visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) team and once aboard, the VBSS team confirmed there were nine suspected pirates, one grappling hook, 36 barrels of fuel, and 75 and 45 horsepower outboard engines. The VBSS team scuttled one outboard motor and left the skiff with enough fuel and water to return back to shore. Cmdr. Matthew M. McGonigle, Pinckney’s commanding officer, praised the crew for their efforts. “My crew responded in an exceptional reaction time and with complete professionalism. With the helicopter in the air, acting in conjunction with the ship, we were able to have full coverage of the situation and stop them carrying out any further illegal activities. “The operation was carried out in accordance

with our pre-rehearsed responses to such an event, and I am very proud of the Pinckney’s crew and all those involved.� Piracy is a threat to the security of all nations and requires an international

Com failures contributed to Afghan Pakistan border incident By Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON – U.S. forces acted in self-defense and responded with appropriate force after being fired upon during a Nov. 25-26 incident on Afghanistan’s border with Pakistan, according to findings from a Defense Department investigation that was released Thursday. Twenty-four Pakistani soldiers were killed in the incident. Air Force Brig. Gen. Stephen Clark, the investigating officer, also found no intentional effort to target people or places known to be part of the Pakistani military, or to deliberately provide inaccurate location information to Pakistani officials. U.S. Central Command commander Marine Corps Gen. James N. Mattis appointed Clark, the director of plans, programs, requirements and assessments for Air Force Special Operations Command, to conduct the investigation. Clark briefed the Pentagon press on telephone from

Hurlburt Field, Fla. Clark said the incident was a result of inadequate coordination between U.S. and Pakistani military officers operating through the border coordination center. This includes relying on incorrect mapping information shared with the Pakistani liaison officer, which resulted in a misunderstanding about the true location of Pakistani military units, DOD officials said. There were other gaps in information about the locations and activities of units on both sides of the border. Pentagon Press Secretary George Little again expressed the U.S. military’s “deepest regret” over the loss of life. “We further express sincere condolences to the Pakistani people, to the Pakistani government and most importantly to the families of the Pakistani soldiers who were killed or wounded,” he said. U.S. and NATO officials now want to focus on learning from the mistakes the investigation

highlighted and correcting them. But the problem is deeper than one incident, according to the report. “We must work to improve the level of trust between our two countries,” the report says. “We cannot operate effectively on the border -- or in other parts of our relationship -- without addressing the fundamental trust still lacking between us. We earnestly hope the Pakistani military will join us in bridging that gap.” The results of the investigation have been briefed through the chain of command and also have been shared with Afghan and Pakistani officials, DOD officials said. Clark gave a narrative on the operation. The operation was to put 120 personnel into Nawa village near the border with Pakistan. Because of the nearness to the border, the operation went up to the International Joint Command in Kabul for approval. Army Lt. Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the IJC

commander, made some changes to the plan to avoid complications. The helicopter landing zone, for example, was moved farther away from the border. “He also asked any known [Pakistani] border posts be identified,” Clark said. Two border posts were identified, but not the ones where the actions subsequently occurred. “That is a critical point in part of this in that the two locations that were in question here were not identified on any chart to include the official chart in the Nawa Coordination Center,” Clark said. The night of the operation, U.S. forces moved along goat trails through steep and climbing terrain toward Nawa village. “At about 11:09 p.m., they receive … direct and heavy machine-gun fire,” Clark said. Overhead were two F-15 Strike Eagles, an AC-130 gunship, an MC-12 intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft and two AH-64 Apache helicopters. They identified that the fire and subsequent mortar fire was coming from the ridgeline. The tactical commander called for the AC-130 and an F-15 to fly low over the valley dropping flares. The low-level passes over the valley and the flares “is key for the ground tactical leaders’ mindset, in that there should be no doubt in anybody’s mind that it’s now coalition forces in the area, which is the intent of the show of force,” Clark

said. Machine-gun and mortar fire continued, and the tactical commander received word that there were no Pakistani military posts in the area. “This is actually the first point where we have found a series of miscommunications to have occurred for the tactical event,” he said. Regional Command East, the battlespace owner, said they were checking with the border coordination center, “but we are tracking no Pak mil in the area,” Clark said. “That was heard at the lower headquarters as ‘no Pak mil in the area’ and radioed to the ground force commander and entered into an electronic chat room, which then began circular reporting back to the regional command, which then assumed the lower echelon had validated and confirmed there were no Pak mil in the area,” Clark said. The general said this was the first point of communication failure that if had been detected and corrected might have prevented the incident. The commander calls for support from the AC-130 onto the positions that were firing on the American troops. That engagement lasts about six minutes. A few minutes later there is a second engagement with the AC-130 and the Apaches firing on hasty battle positions -- rudimentary bunkers -- that are firing on the American forces. That action ends at midnight.

During this engagement, Pakistani liaison officers are calling Regional Command East to say that their forces are under fire. “There is confusion caused by this because there is a lack of precision on where this is occurring,” Clark said. “When asked, the general answer back is, ‘Well, you know where it is because you are shooting at them,’ rather than giving a position.” The border coordination center has the exact latitude and longitude of the fight. It is put on a computer but the map overlay was configured incorrectly. The computer shows the fight as occurring 14 kilometers away from the actual battle. “That’s our second point of failure in clarification of where things were going and what has happening,” the general said. There was a third engagement beginning at about 12:40 a.m. and lasting through 1 a.m. This was a bit north of the previous engagements and centered on a heavy machine gun. “About that time there was confirmation and clarification across the net that in fact there were Pakistani military in the area and that there were border posts,” Clark said. “That word was then relayed down to the ground tactical leader, who immediately ceased engagement, and no rounds were fired after that time.”

Pretrial wraps for biggest intel leak in U.S. history FORT MEADE, Md. (AFPS) – The prosecution and defense rested Thursday after delivering their closing statements in the Article 32 hearing of a soldier charged with leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents. The session, which adjourned at about 10:30 a.m., wrapped up eight days of pre-trial proceedings in the case against Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning that began Dec. 16. An Article 32 hearing, often compared to a civilian grand jury, is a pretrial hearing to determine if grounds exist for a general court martial, the most

serious of courts martial. The investigating officer, Army Lt. Col. Paul Almanza, now has until Jan. 16 to issue his recommendations to the Special Court Martial Convening Authority, a Military District of Washington spokesperson told American Forces Press Service. Alamanza may ask for an extension, if needed, the official said. His report will recommend that the case be referred to a court martial, or that some or all of the charges against Manning be dismissed. The Special Court Martial Convening Authority, Army Col. Carl

Coffman, will then provide Alamanza’s recommendation to the General Court Martial Convening Authority, and indicate whether he concurs with it, the MDW official said. Manning, an intelligence analyst, is suspected of leaking military and diplomatic documents to the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks in what officials believe is the biggest intelligence leak in U.S. history. WikiLeaks, in turn, released thousands of these documents, including classified records about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, on its website last year. At the time, thenDefense Secretary Robert

M. Gates and other senior defense officials condemned the organization’s actions, claiming the act put deployed service members at an increased risk. The Article 32 hearing marked 24-year-old Manning’s first appearance in a military court since his arrest in Iraq in May 2010. He faces more than 20 charges alleging he introduced unauthorized software onto government computers to extract classified information, unlawfully downloaded it, improperly stored it, and transmitted the data for public release and use by the enemy. The charge of aiding the enemy under Article 104

of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice is a capital offense; however, the prosecution team has said it won’t recommend the death penalty, a legal official said. If convicted of all charges, Manning would face

a maximum punishment of life in prison. He also could be reduced to E-1, the lowest enlisted grade, face a total forfeiture of all pay and allowances and dishonorable discharge, officials said.
