Faith takes flight Whidbey Island churches reach out to Navy families By MELANIE HAMMONS

O

Whidbey Crosswind

ak Harbor is a military community from way back. For 70 years, sailors from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island have served their country in worldwide conflicts. But sometimes even the men and women in uniform need a hand, and Oak Harbor area churches are reaching out in a variety of ways, including organized events and those less formal. Jeff Spencer, pastor of Oak Harbor

Living Word Fellowship in Oak Harbor is just one of several churches in the community that offers help to active duty military members. KATHY REED/WHIDBEY CROSSWIND Lutheran Church, views both types of outreach as equally important. Although he’s been at the Oak Harbor location for only four months now, he sees military ministry as something that occurs naturally in the life of a congregation that seeks to express care for others. “There are a lot of military families

here,” he said. “Relocations seem to come in waves, but wherever these families may find themselves, they are a regular part of our prayer emphasis.” From that emphasis flow other efforts. One involves a recognition of families who are transferring. “We have something we call a ‘sending ceremony’, a sort of informally done farewell,” said Spencer. “It’s a time when we can recognize them, express our thanks, and wish them well at their next duty station. They can also leave us a forwarding address at that time so we can keep in touch with how they’re doing.” Oak Harbor Lutheran Church, like others, has an informal network of members who try to be mindful of the on-going needs of military families, especially those who have a deployed spouse.

Japan evcacuees come to Oak Harbor Navy wife and son stay with friends after voluntary evacuation By MELANIE HAMMONS Whidbey Crosswind

A life-long resident of Japan, Tomomi Feldhues has experienced many earthquakes. But the quake that struck the island nation on March 11 was starkly different. Although it did not seem as intense as previous quakes she had been through, this one seemed to last much longer. “The shaking just seemed to go on and on,” said Feldhues, wife of Navy Lt. Mike Feldhues and mother of a 2-year-old boy. The aftermath was different, too. The base commissary at Naval Air Facility Atsugi ran out of rice, meat, noodles and disposable diapers early on. Bottled water disappeared almost immediately. Then came the rolling blackouts, followed by a run on batteries, flashlights and kerosene heaters. “Off base, we waited anywhere from half an hour to 45 minutes just to enter the stores,” Feldhues said. The continuing aftershocks took a toll on her peace of mind. “Whenever my son, Hunter, bumped into the bed, I would think, ‘It’s happening again,’” she said. The constant replay on Japanese media of images from the tsunami didn’t help. “I couldn’t sleep, had night-

mares whenever I could sleep, and began to lose weight,” she said. Even when others began to talk of evacuating, she held out. Feldhues’s husband is a sailor attached to VAQ-136 on NAF Atsugi. Her parents live in Tokyo, along with a brother and his wife. “I didn’t want to leave my fam-

ily and friends behind,” she said. “What kind of person would I be if I did that?”

Finally convinced to go It was her parents who finally convinced her to leave by reminding her she has a child to look after. Fears of radiation contamina-

McDowell: Poseidon still a go – for now By DENNIS CONNOLLY

Whidbey Crosswind

The budget cycle in Washington, D.C. over the next year or two could determine the P-8A Poseidon’s future on Whidbey Island, according to former Island County commissioner Mac McDowell. “The decision to bring four P-8A Poseidon squadrons and 2,000 sailors to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island (in 2017) still stands,” McDowell told a group gathered April 7 at a luncheon for the Republican Women’s Club of North Whidbey.

panied a contingent of Oak Harbor officials to Washington, D.C., where the future of the P-8A Poseidon aircraft at NAS Whidbey was discussed with Navy officials and lawmakers. Local officials became concerned when the Navy began examining whether there are more “efficient” ways to conduct the operation. McDowell, who served on the Island County Commission for 16 years and retired as a captain in the Navy Reserves, says “efficient” in Navy terms is another word for saving money. More than four years ago, after

the Quadrennial Defense Review, the Department of Defense determined there was a greater need for anti-submarine forces in the Pacific than the Atlantic. Consequently P-3 Orions would

be followed by P-8A Poseidons in the Pacific. In response, the Navy arrived at a Record of Decision that would station three P-8A squadrons in Kaneohe, Hawaii, four P-8A squadrons – 24 total airplanes – on Whidbey Island and five operation and one training squadron in Jacksonville, Fla. In response to severe budget issues, the Pentagon is reviewing many decisions where action has not been completed. For the time being, the Navy is following the current ROD, but that could change. “If 10 squadrons were to be placed at NAS Jacksonville a new Record of Decision would need

to be reviewed and done,” said McDowell. “We were told this by all Pentagon people we visited and that the existing ROD is the official Navy decision.” Official word could still be a year or more away, McDowell said, and “efficiency” could come back to haunt Whidbey Island. McDowell said the cost for a new hangar is about $145 million. But he maintains it makes better financial sense to let the current ROD stand, because it is more costly to fly P-8A’s across America than to use planes based at NAS Whidbey. Also the cost per man hour on Whidbey Island is half that on Hawaii and slightly less than Jacksonville. McDowell said Whidbey Island has airspace that is largely unencumbered with fewer people living on land under the aircraft’s flight path.

Military Ball set for May Vancouver Garrison Officer’s Society invites NAS Whidbey Once again the 39 Canadian Brigade Group with the Vancouver Garrison Officers’ Society extends a warm invitation to military personnel across the border to attend the Garrison’s annual Military Ball. The ball welcomes officers and non commissioned members from foreign armed forces, the diplomatic corps, police forces and their civilian guests. Now in its 66th year, the ball will be held on Saturday, May 21 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. For many personnel at Naval Air Station Whidbey

Island, the annual “MilBall” is an occasion to meet old friends in the Canadian military family as well as introduce new arrivals to the unique and friendly cross-border connection that has evolved over the years. The Garrison’s Military Ball originated in 1946 as a victory celebration to mark the end of World War II and has continued ever since. It began as the brainchild of the officers in the Vancouver Garrison to relive the euphoria at the time and to celebrate the return of troops to family

and friends after six long years of war. For many years it was considered an officers’ ball, but as time went on it was combined with the Sgt.’s Coronation Ball and nowwelcomes all ranks, much like the U.S. Navy Ball. Entertainment ranges from light dinner music to a musical dessert show, featuring military band performances. The band of the 15th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery and Pipes & Drums of the Seaforth Highland Regiment of Canada will

wrap up its performance with a salute to both Canadian and American military members by playing traditional music of the Navy, Marines, Army and Air Force. See www.militaryball. ca for information. When ordering tickets, indicate any food restrictions you may have.

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- All service members will receive their full mid-month pay they have earned in their April 15 paychecks, Pentagon offcials said April 11. “Basically, all active duty and reserve service members will receive full midmonth pay on the 15th of April,” Pentagon spokes-

man Marine Col. Dave Lapan said. “It may be in two separate payments, but on the 15th everyone will receive their full allotted pay.” Confusion arose about the April 15 payday due to the threatened closure of the U.S. government last week. Administration and congressional leaders came to an agreement that ended that action late on April 8. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service had posted “net pay advice” to some service members, telling them what to expect in their accounts. “Those net pay advice statements were made … before we knew there was an agreement to fund the government,” Lapan said. “When those were posted they only showed partial payments, but again, everyone will receive their full pay on the 15th .”

OUR VIEWS

What a cool community As I was reading through the stories for this week’s Crosswind, it struck me what a cool community we have. I don’t just mean the city of Oak Harbor or the surrounding towns, or Naval Air Station Whidbey Island by themselves. I mean the people here who pull together to create that sense of community. It’s not anything to do with size. There are big cities where you can connect and feel very plugged in and at home. And there are small communities where political divisions, for instance, make one feel they have to choose sides. It’s people who make a community. I think people on Whidbey Island feel a sense KATHY of camaraderie just because of REED where we live. That’s the ‘island’ community. Then there’s NAS Whidbey Island - our military community. Let’s not forget our vibrant business community. You might call the dozens of organizations, groups and clubs our civic community. Our churches are a spiritual community. That’s a lot of different communities, and I haven’t even mentioned professional, educational or casual communities. I’m sure there are dozens more. What I find so cool is how our communities overlap. They’re all connected, woven together into an enormous tapestry with a common thread. Spiritual community supports military; military supports civic; civic supports educational — suffice it to say there is a huge number of possible connections to be made. I hope the Crosswind has a role in your community. Contact me at kreed@whidbeycrosswind. com. –Kathy Reed, editor

That is also true of Living Word Fellowship church. Its congregation includes a number of members who are active with the local Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, according to Associate Pastor Janelle Ibaven. “What we have found is that these members involved with NMCRS can really relate to military families in a very empathetic way,” Ibaven said. “They are in a unique position to learn of someone’s needs, and see how our congregation can possibly address them.” Ibaven also cited her church’s Christmastime observance of what they have come to call Compassion Sunday. “On Compassion Sunday, we try to connect military members to

people in our church who can answer or help with a need,” she said. Often, members become

aware of needs and address them on their own. Ibaven cited an instance when members joined together

For someone who’s making the transition from the military to the civilian workforce, there are unique challenges when it comes to a job search. “If someone came into the Navy right out of high school, they may have Anne Hallam never had a job or had to look for a job,” said Bill Conley, Work and Family Life Consultant at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island’s Fleet and Family Support Center. That’s where the Navy’s Transition Assistance Program comes into play. TAP classes are held at the support center each month for those who are separating from the Navy. Retiree

TAP classes are held every other month. The classes lay the groundwork for a job search – covering how to write resumes, how to handle the interview process, how to make the most of a job fair and even how to dress. But Conley said what someone does during their military service can make a big difference when it comes to Bill Conley a civilian job hunt. “The most challenging question for people separating from the military is ‘Did you find a career path you like, and did you do anything to prepare for it?’,” Conley said. “The military offers a lot of opportunities – did they take advantage of it?” While the classes and one on one guidance offered at the support center provides a solid base for

Job Fair: Thursday, May 5, noon to 4 p.m. Oak Harbor Elks Lodge. an impending job search, help during the job hunt is also available through the state. “Our classes are a great supplement to the TAP classes,” said WorkSource Whidbey center coordinator Anne Hallam. “There could be some additional information they didn’t previously get.”

Job fairs WorkSource often joins forces with the Fleet and Family Support Center, and arranges its bi-annual job fairs around the Navy’s

TAP classes so skills can be put to use immediately. That’s the case for the upcoming WorkSource job fair, scheduled for Thurs., May 5 at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge. “We give those attending a two-hour lunch on the last day of TAP class so they can attend the job fair,” said Conley. “It’s a good opportunity to meet people face to face,” Hallam said, adding that people should dress professionally and have their resume with them because some employers will conduct interviews on the spot. Fleet and Family Support Center also has a job fair coming up on June 27 which is targeted specifically for people separating from the Navy. “The companies participating are looking for specific skill sets acquired from this air station,” he said. “The people stationed at NAS Whidbey have skill sets that can make them more marketable.” And that is a key factor in today’s job search. “There may be a lot of skills you’ve developed but don’t know you have,” Conley said.

Spouses, too The search for employment extends beyond just military personnel. Hallam said a lot spouses take advantage of WorkSource services, especially when they first arrive.

hristopher Cady is adjusting to being in the public eye. “Today I had a guy in the bathroom ask me for my autograph,” Cady said. “He said he saw me on TV and that I was becoming quite famous.” People he doesn’t even know are sending him friend requests on Facebook. Why all the hullabaloo and sudden recognition?

LS1 Christopher Cady greets his son Joshua as he returns home from school Friday. Cady is a finalist for the Military Fatherhood Award. GREG SKINNER/WHIDBEY CROSSWIND Cady, a single father and petty officer first class who works in the Priority Materials Office at Navy Base Kitsap, has been hounded by news reporters as word spread that

he is a finalist for the 2011 Military Fatherhood Award. Out of 600 nominees, Cady is one of three in the final running. His story is one that tugs at the heart-

strings. His son Joshua contracted Cytomegalovirus in utero, and as a result, his brain never fully formed. Doctors believed Joshua would be stillborn.

The ailments Joshua suffers from due to CMV are many and challenging. Joshua, now 11 years old, is legally blind and deaf, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He is confined to a wheelchair, receives all of his nourishment through a feeding tube and has a tracheotomy. Any one of these would be a hardship, but for Joshua, it is all he’s ever known. Cady is quick to point out that Joshua is like any typical boy and enjoys roughhousing – although, because of Joshua’s fragile

bones, his father has to be extra careful. Too strenuous of play could cause a bone to break. The duo also enjoys watching sports on television, especially the Denver Broncos, and going on walks around the neighborhood. Joshua is deaf in his left ear, and can hear about 50 percent out of his right. Like any preteen, he enjoys listening to music via an ear bud placed in his right ear. And although he is legally blind, doctors

Nickname: None Place of work: NAS Whidbey Island Security Department Job Description: I work as the Field Training Officer for base Security Department, DEFY (Drug Education For Youth) department coordinator and U.S. Military Apprenticeship Program department coordinator.

college); travel to places I would not otherwise be able to see; and be able to support and care for my family. My ultimate goal is to be a police officer. Most memorable moment: Being able to see my efforts come together and be awarded NAS Whidbey Island Junior Sailor of the Year. I care greatly about junior Sailors and representing them and making sure their needs are met. This title has responsibilities and I hope to pay it forward. Best thing about the military is: I have met a variety of people throughout my career and the friendships are invaluable.

DAD | FROM PAGE 8 believe he can see color and shape, but no detail. “I pretty much take him with me everywhere I go, and I don’t treat him any differently than I would a typically developing child,” Cady said.

Father, caregiver Cady and his ex-wife divorced in 2006, and Cady became the custodial parent in 2008. While Joshua’s mom has weekend and summer visits, Cady provides the bulk of his care. He has a meticulous support system in place for Joshua, including nursing care so Cady can receive a good night’s sleep. When Cady has to travel for work, Joshua’s mother or nurse step in and take charge. Cady was nominated for Military Father of the Year by friend Wendy Kruse. When she heard the National Fatherhood Initiative was seeking nominations, Cady immediately popped into her mind. “His story is so remarkable,” Kruse said, “how he has turned tragedy into triumph is amazing.” Kruse, who is also a special needs parent, met Cady through special education programs at

the Central Kitsap School District. They both serve on the advisory council for the Military Special Needs Network. Kruse recounted a recent conversation she had with Cady. “I asked him, ‘Aren’t you ever sad?’ and he said, ‘Sure, I’m going to mourn the fact I’ll never teach him how to fish or play football, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give him that experience. So I take him fishing and to games. I can either be a victim, or make something better out of this.’” Besides working and being Joshua’s primary caregiver, Cady fills his time helping other families in similar situations. “Being a typical man, I’m a problem solver and obviously a lot of Joshua’s problems, I can’t solve,” Cady said. Instead, he uses his energy and advocates and helps other special needs families, especially those who are navigating the special needs resources for the first time. “If I can help guide them through the process and help them solve problems that I’ve already solved, it helps me rejuvenate,” he said. “I actually draw strength and recharge by helping others.” Jamie Goodman,

Under pressure, Cady is graceful and has an unflappable demeanor. “He will tell you that he’s learned a lot from his son, like how to stay calm,” Goodman said. Friend Jessica Huckaby also knows Cady through the Military Special Needs Network. She said the love between father and son is obvious to anyone who sees the pair together. “Joshua looks towards

Cady retires from the Navy later this year, and Kruse said she would love to see him end his 20 years of service with the honor of being Military Father of the Year. “He makes me want to be a better person,” Kruse said. “He’s an inspiration.” As for Cady, he’s handling the spotlight with modesty and would rather the focus be on Joshua and his disabilities. For the first time ever, the winner of Military Father of the Year will be decided on which nominee receives the most votes via online voting. Cady hopes online voting doesn’t diminish the integrity of the award. “I am humbled and honored to be nominated,” he

said. “But I would rather lose based on the merit and strength of the other applicants, than win the award because it turned into a popularity contest.”

Harbor Tower Hero

Hal Johnson While Hal was on his well deserved liberty after The Battle Of Midway his ship was called out unexpectedly and he and four other sailors missed the ship. They were put on a Marine Transport with the objective being to get them to The USS Warden. On their way the marine transport ship became involved in the invasion of Guadacanal. The battle lasted three days. On the third day Hal was on gun watch at night. A Japanese task force with battle ships and cruisers entered the area. They sunk three American and one Australian cruiser. After Guadacanal was secured Hal went back to the USS Warden and onto Pear Harbor and the States for two months while a yard overhaul was done on the ship.. After the overhaul was complete the sailors and the ship loaded up with fowl weather gear. Where were they going, they wondered. The Aleutian Islands was the answer. They proceeded to Dutch Island where they picked up Alaskan Scouts. The scouts were to set up beach markers on Amchitka Island prior to its invasion. After the USS Warden dropped off the scouts it headed back out of the harbor. On its way out the ships sonar picked up a contact. It seemed to follow them -they made a run at it. It turned out to be a reef and the ship broke in two. For the second time in his military career Hal heard “abandon ship.” An American transport ship saw the whole thing unfold and put amphibious landing crafts in the water to pick up the sailors. Only those with their fowl weather gear on survived the freezing waters. Hours after Hal was picked up a huge wave hit that boat and.it sunk. Hal was again picked up by another amphibious landing craft and transported to the USS Middleton in the Amchitka Harbor. The ship was there for two days when it swung on its anchor and hit the rocks putting holes in the ship. Hal and his shipmates where picked up by a merchant ship and taken to Kodiak Island. From there it was off to Bremerton Washington for 30 days of survivor leave. Hal’s career continued and his WWII involvement ended with the battle in Okinawa. Hal saw the kamikaze pilots in full force. One just missed his ship and exploded over the bow. It was now time for Hal Johnson to retire from this war. He joined the reserves in Bellingham,Washington. The Korean War brought Hal back. He was the first reserve called in Bellingham. This war brought an incredible coincidence into Hal’s life. At the end of the Korean War the ship was taken to Yokosuka, Japan for work to be done. The foreman of the crew that worked on Hal’s boat was the Admiral of the Japanese ship at Guadacanal. Our Military breads fine men-Hal and the admiral became friends. Hal was able to appreciate a culture he fought a war against. Hal is a Harbor Tower Hero in every sense of the word.

MURPHY| FROM PAGE 1 from the Naval Air Forces. Capt. Christopher Shay, commander, Electronic Attack Wing Pacific, relieved Murphy of duty because of a loss of confidence in his ability to command, according to the release. “We hold our commanding officers to a high standard,” said Lt. Aaron Kakiel, Public Affairs Officer at NAS North Island, San Diego, Calif. “We take their performance very seriously,” he said. Capt. John Springett has assumed command of

VAQ129 until a permanent replacement is named. Murphy took Cmdr. Timothy command of Murphy VAQ129 on Aug. 12, 2010. He has nearly 700 carrier landings, primarily in the EA-6B, and has accumulated more than 3,400 hours of flight time. He was designated a Naval Flight Officer in 1992.

Most were enrolled in elementary schools, but there were also students placed in local middle schools and the high school, said Oak Harbor School District communications director Joe Hunt. The Department of Defense has temporarily relocated families of military personnel stationed in Japan until the Fukushima nuclear power plant is stabilized. The Oak Harbor families come from Atsugi Naval Air Facility or Yokosuka Naval Base, located south of Tokyo.

CONSUMER ALERT Scammers are targeting newspapers

Credit card scam artists have conceived a new scheme involving newspapers. Law Enforcement advises the usual precaution: Use caution when speaking to anyone about sensitive financial information over the phone. The scammers pose as advertising representatives from the newspaper, and call customers who have placed ads or classified notices, to report a problem with the customer’s credit card. The callers say they need to confirm the card number and security code on the back of the card. These callers are not from this newspaper. This newspaper will attempt to collect payment on returned checks and invalid credit card payments; but advertisers would receive calls from our accounting department seeking an alternate payment method. To be sure you are speaking with an authorized representative of our newspaper, use these following tips:

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. http://agr.wa.gov/inspection/ weightsMeasures/ Firewoodinformation.aspx
