Garudas commander relieved of duty The Commanding Officer of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 34 has been relieved of duty aboard the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). According to a Navy press release, Cmdr. Jonathan Jackson was relieved due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command. He is the 22nd commander relieved this year. Jackson was relieved Dec. 8 at Admiral’s Mast, Cmdr. Jonathan following an investigation Jackson that confirmed his failure to “obey a lawful regula-

Meet the Sailors, Marine of the Year By K ATHY REED Whidbey Crosswind

he ceremony was short and sweet, but in no way was that a reflection of the great honor bestowed on two sailors and a Marine last week at the Navy League-Rotary Awards luncheon to name the Sailors and Marine of the year. The 38th annual award ceremony was held Dec. 9 at the Officers’ Club on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. The room was packed with civilians and active duty, a good mix of community members and the military plus members of the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps from Oak Harbor High School and Burlington Edison High School. Guests were welcomed by Navy League copresident Dick Devlin and Rotary Club president Kathy DeTuerk. “Today we have the opportunity to honor the men and women who have served in the longest war in our nation’s history,” he said.

“I can think of no better way to start the holiday season than by honoring the accomplishments of these men and women,” agreed DeTuerk. Following the Pledge of Allegiance and the benediction, NAS Whidbey Island Commanding Officer, Capt. Jay Johnston spoke briefly. He commended those sailors and Marines who had been nominated by their commands. “You can’t believe the difficult decision they had to make,” he said. “We are proud of our Navy and Marine Corps personnel and what they do here.” The shore and sea sailor of the year are selected from a group of finalists from the major commands on base — the two air wings (Commander, Electronic Attack Wing, U.S. Pacific Fleet and Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10), Naval Hospital Oak Harbor, Navy Information Operations Command, Naval Ocean Processing Facility, NAS Whidbey, Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit and Fleet Readiness Center Northwest. Marines

are nominated through Marine Aviation Training Support Group 53. Command Master Chiefs, using criteria such as leadership, command responsibility, command impact, education and community service, choose the final sea and shore sailors of the year. After recognizing all the finalists, it was time to honor the Sailors and Marine of the year. Aviation Electronics Technician First Class (Naval Air Crewmen) James Conkey was named Shore Sailor of the Year. Conkey enlisted in the Navy in 2002. He reported to Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 129 in July, 2009. He was one of the first Super Hornetqualified personnel and has been instrumental in transitioning five fleet squadrons to the new EA-18G Growler aircraft. He and his wife, Tracy, have two children, Brookelyn and Lane. Naval Air Crewman Operator First Class Christopher Shephard was named

Home for the holidays By K ATHY REED Whidbey Crosswind

S

anta got to work early this year, granting lots of Christmas wishes for Navy personnel and families from two squadrons at Naval Air Station Whidbey

Island. Patrol Squadron (VP) 40 and Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 141 had homecoming celebrations last week. The final airlift for VP-40 personnel returned to Hangar 6 Wednesday, Dec. 7. The Fighting Marlins deployed to Okinawa, Japan on May 12, and spent the last six months demonstrating their expertise in anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. While Navy personnel were obviously busy doing their jobs during their deployment, the same was true of the families left behind. “It’s been really busy,” said Victoria Propes, wife of Naval Aircrewman (Mechanical) Second Class Ben Propes. The couple has two daughters — Autumn, 3, and Summer, 2. “Grocery shopping was probably the hardest,” Propes laughed when asked about the most difficult thing she encountered during the six months as a single parent. “The (separation) was easier because with Skype now, they get to see him and talk to him,” she continued. But even with the convenience of Skype, time away is still time away and deployed parents miss special events whether they like it or not. “She missed our son’s birthday,” said Orlando Franco, who was there with 4-year-old Diego, awaiting the arrival of Aviation Machinist’s Mate Second Class, Thalia Franco. “She misses him a lot. It will be nice for her to be home in time for Christmas.” BethAnn Adams and her children, Anastasia, 5, and Nolan, 4, were happily waiting for the return of Lt. Cmdr. Jeremiah Adams. Adams said she was most looking forward to just spending time together as a family. “(The children) are old enough now to know that Daddy’s gone. It’s hard,” she said. Lt. Cmdr. Adams barely set foot on the tarmac before his children threw their arms around him, no shyness evident in their exuberant greeting.

Shadowhawks come home That scene was repeated over and over Thursday, as the entire contingent of Shadowhawks from VAQ-141 came home following a seven-month deployment on the USS

AO1 Phillip Foster, with VAQ-141, greets his wife Crystal and their 1-year-old son, Colton, upon his homecoming last week. KATHY REED/WHIDBEY CROSSWIND

George H.W. Bush (CVN 72). The Shadowhawks were the first squadron to deploy on an aircraft carrier with the EA-18G Growler. The homecoming event was doubly festive, as the jets arrived at approximately 4 p.m., followed shortly after that by the airlift for maintenance personnel and 10 members of the Sea Operational Detachment from Fleet Readiness Center Northwest who also provide technical support. Deployments are becoming second nature to Samantha Jackson, whose husband, Aviation Structural Mechanic (Equipment) First Class Jacob Jackson, has deployed five times in 11 years. Jackson said a newly formed Family Readiness Group within the squadron proved to be very helpful. “Having a group of people who are going through the same thing you are is so comforting,” said Jackson, who is the president of the FRG. “It helps keep you strong.” “It keeps you busy, too,” agreed FRG vice president Crystal Foster, wife of Aviation Ordnanceman First Class Phillip Foster. Both women said this was the first time

either of them had become involved in a group like the FRG, and said it made the time go even faster than normal and helped them establish bonds with more of the Shadowhawk families. Also on hand for the homecoming were the commanding officer’s mother and sister, who traveled from Illinois and California, respectively, to watch the jets fly in. It was the first time they had been to a homecoming. “He worked hard to get where he is,” said Jean Miller of her son, Cmdr. Michael Miller. “This is something he’s always wanted to do.” “He loves his job,” said Ann Miller. “I envy him that.” Over the past seven months, the squadron flew 237 missions and 673 carrier-based training flights for more than 2,300 mishapfree flight hours. Those results earned 16 Air Medals for aircrews, according to a press release. But thoughts of a job well done were quickly replaced for many, such as Lt. Adam Kouloumoundras, whose wife Cathy greeted him with an extra special gift — the first look at his 10-week-old son, Noah. It was the last homecoming for Frances Dennis, whose husband, Aviation Electronics Technician Second Class Steven Dennis, with SEAOPDET, will be retiring after 20 years in the Navy. After four deployments, she said she was getting a little concerned this time. “I was worried we’d have to do our first Christmas without him,” Dennis said, “so we’re excited.”

Fighting Marlins Return to Whidbey Island By Lt. j. g. DANIEL BUCCOLA VP-40 Public Affairs

The return of 117 sailors to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Dec. 7 marked the last of the Fighting Marlins to come home from their deployment to U.S. Seventh Fleet. On May 12, 337 sailors and officers from Patrol Squadron (VP) 40 departed Whidbey Island for Okinawa, Japan, with intentions of demonstrating their proficiency and expertise in Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW), and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations. After 206 days operating out of

Kadena Air Base, VP-40 Aircrew flew over 4,300 flight hours while maintenance personnel performed over 24,400 hours of maintenance. Among pilot trainers, aircrew qualification trainers and real-world missions, aircrews flew a total of 704 sorties in the Seventh Fleet Theater of Operations. “There were very few days when we weren’t scheduled for a flight or training or even just duty. The operational tempo out of Kadena was extremely busy and evolved daily,” said Naval Aircrewman Third Class Tyler Turner. “Whether you are aircrew or maintenance, there was always a mission to fulfill.” During the six-month deploy-

ment, the 12 aircrews detached to 10 countries, including: Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Guam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Republic of the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and the Republic of Korea. Of the 29 exercises in which VP-40 participated, six were a part of the Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) series, two were a part of Maritime Surveillance Exercises (MARSURVEX), and two were a part of Sea Surveillance Exercises (SEASURVEX). On detachment, the Fighting Marlins were provided the unique opportunity to work with aircrews from around Southeast Asia, improving interoperability

and cohesion between the United States Navy and partner forces. Many lessons were learned and experience gained while integrating with friends of partner nations. “I had the privilege of visiting Brunei, where I met the first women to ever serve at sea onboard their ships and the first female pilot to ever serve in the Royal Brunei Air Force,” said Lt. Jennifer Daniels. “The more people I meet from other countries, the more I believe we’re all the same. This deployment has been exotic, humbling, instructive, trying, and exhausting. It’s been everything I signed up to experience.”

On the morning of September 6, the Fighting Marlins surpassed 275,000 mishap-free flight hours, a 43-year safety record. “The Fighting Marlins have worked exceedingly hard during a challenging Seventh Fleet deployment. Our maintainers produced mission-ready aircraft at unprecedented levels, and our aircrew expertly employed the venerable Orion whenever and wherever the opportunity arose,” said Cmdr. Brett W. Mietus, VP-40 Commanding Officer. “We have accomplished our mission safely and effectively. I couldn’t be prouder of their effort, their attitude, or their performance. I’m lucky to be their skipper.”

Navy Band NW holiday concert For many in the Oak Harbor area, the holiday season just isn’t complete without attending the annual holiday concert by Navy Band Northwest. This year’s “Home for the Holidays� concert will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Oak Harbor High School Performing Arts Center. There is no charge to attend. “This is a unique opportunity to see the whole band together,� said Petty Officer Daniel Bonnin, who said the full band only does three holiday concerts. “This time of year we have small groups out doing caroling or short little concerts to spread holiday cheer,� Bonnin said. “But we’re busy all year long, on Whidbey Island especially, providing music for all the official functions like changes of command.� Bonnin said the program will feature a mix of traditional songs and some new, jazzier arrangements from band members, as well as a nostalgic 1950’s “Andrew Sisters�-style medley. If the good music doesn’t get you in the holiday spirit, a U.S. Marine Corps representative from NAS Whidbey’s Marine Aviation Training Support Group 53 will be on hand to accept donations for Toys for Tots. A special appearance by Santa Claus and even the Grinch will round out the afternoon. Navy Band Northwest is under the direction of Lt. j.g. Robert Coats. The band performs more than 480 engagements each year throughout the Pacific Northwest. The band is under the operational command of Rear Adm. Douglass T. Biesel, Commander Navy Region Northwest.

A man killed Dec. 8 when the small aircraft he was piloting crashed into a bluff on Whidbey Island Thursday has been identified as Michael Heaton Sr., 59, a resident of Whidbey Island for six months. The crash occurred on Central Whidbey at Ebey’s Bluff, between Perego’s Lake and the parking lot at the northern end of Hill Road, at about 4 p.m. The area is a popular spot for hiking and bird watching. First responders, including police and firefighters, arrived to find the aircraft engulfed in flames about one-third of the way from the top of the bluff. The blaze burned unchecked for about 30 minutes before being extinguished. Kimberly Martin, public affairs officer for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, confirmed the plane is a Whidbey Island Navy Flying Club aircraft and had been checked out by a member of the Civil Air Patrol. Island County Coroner Robert Bishop said the cause of Heaton’s was blunt force trauma. According to the coroner, Heaton was a 30-year resident of Sammamish, but has been living with a friend on Whidbey for the last six months. Martin said officials from the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash. The cause has yet to be determined.

Still lots of ways to give this season If you enjoy giving, this is the time of year made especially for you. It seems when we’re younger our motives could be construed as selfish — writing Christmas lists, telling parents over and over again at length what we’d like to find under the Christmas tree. As we grow older and hopefully wiser, our priorities shift. Many of us find that giving to someone else is a gift in and of itself. If you haven’t been finished your holiday giving, there are still some chances left to help. There are plenty of children on Whidbey Island whose parents KATHY or guardians could use a little help filling the space under the REED Christmas tree. There may still be opportunities to lend a hand wrapping and organizing gifts for the Tree of Hope. Go to www.sioakharbor.org for information. There is still time to donate a new, unwrapped toy to Toys for Tots. All toys donated on Whidbey Island stay on Whidbey Island, as do all monetary contributions made here.

AWARD | FROM PAGE 1 Sea Sailor of the Year. Shephard has a list of qualifications and achievements too long to list here, but he remains humble. “This award is for my sailors,� Shephard said to the crowd. “They continue to support me in everything I do and I am so, so honored.� Marine of the Year, Staff Sgt. Joseph Napolitano, has been at his current assignment with CNATTU since August, 2009. He told the audience he appreciated the opportunity to mingle with members of the community in attendance. “The greatest gift we can give is service to the com-

munity,� Napolitano said. After their introduction, the men were showered with gifts and recognition from the sponsors, and Oak Harbor Mayor Jim Slowik read a proclamation declaring Friday, Dec. 9, their day and commending them on their outstanding attitude and their focus on the community. In the end, Navy League co-president Beth Munns fought back tears as she summed up the event. “You are all very, very special. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all,� she said. “We are grateful to all the winners for all they do to protect our freedom every day.�

Dogs in single person households are more than twice as likely to suffer from separation anxiety. Sometimes, though, there are no known triggers. Can separation anxiety be treated? Separation anxiety cannot be cured, but it can be successfully managed using a combination of behavior modification and medication. The behavior modification involves both you and your dog. The goal of medication is to reduce anxiety levels while you put behavior modification techniques in place.

Remembering Pearl Harbor By JUSTIN BURNETT Whidbey News-Times

A

crowd of about 50 people gathered at the Seaplane Base Marina in Oak Harbor Dec. 7 to honor the thousands of men and women who gave their lives during the historic Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor 70 years ago. The annual ceremony began with opening comments by U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Shawn Capps and followed with a moving prayer from Electronic Attack Wing Chaplain Lt. Cmdr. Dan Link. “We are here for them,� said Link, referring to the those who fought and died in the battle, which sparked America’s involvement in World War II. Capt. John Springett, deputy commander Electronic Attack Wing U.S. Pacific Fleet, was the main speaker at the service. He echoed Link’s sentiments while specifically mentioning several veterans in attendance. “I’m really proud and really honored to be up here and really proud and honored to be in your presence,� Springett said. The importance of survivors cannot be understated as they are a direct link, the anchor, that connects and reminds us of all the attack at Pearl Harbor means, he said. Today’s generation does have some understanding of such conflict, having suffered the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, he said. Those attacks also resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans and has led to the longest period of war the country has ever seen, Springett said. “There is an inevitable and direct linkage of those two terrible days that will live in infamy,� he said. The ceremony was concluded when a wreath and

flowers were tossed into the waters of Puget Sound by Shirley Gilbert of Burlington and Gayle Vyskocil of Anacortes. Both belong to Pearl Harbor Survivor’s Association Chapter Five and are widows of men who were there. “It was very moving for me,� Gilbert said. Her late husband, Edward, served on the USS Dewey. Having visited the USS Arizona memorial with him before he passed, Members of the Pearl she said the ceremony brought back some memo- Harbor Survivor’s Association Chapter Five ries. arrive at last week’s Pearl “All I could see were the drops of oil that come Harbor Remembrance up from the Arizona,� she Ceremony hosted by said. VAQ-129. KATHY REED/WHIDBEY Sarah Cummings also CROSSWIND attended the ceremony. Like Gilbert and Vyskocil, her late husband Delmer was at Pearl Harbor. A member of the Coast Guard, he witnessed the attack unfold from a distance. “He watched through his binoculars as the planes hit the ships,� Cummings said. Although she was not there personally, and 70 years have since passed, remembrance ceremonies were always important to her husband and therefore became important to her. She has thrown the wreath many times herself. “Very emotional, even yet,� Cummings said.

Oak Harbor loses a Pearl Harbor survivor By JESSIE STENSLAND Whidbey News-Times

Just three days after we honored the men and women who fought at Pearl Harbor 70 years ago, the Oak Harbor community must say goodbye to one of them. Glenn Lane, a 55-year resident of Oak Harbor, passed away Saturday, Dec. 10, at Skagit Valley Hospital. He was 93 years old. The Pearl Harbor survivor proudly shared his account of the infamous attack with the Oak Harbor community at many different venues. Famously, he may have been the only person to be on two battleships taken out by the enemy on the same day. “He died in his sleep, which is what he always said he wanted,� his daughter Patricia Anderson said. A memorial service to honor Lane will be held at Wallin Funeral Home on Monday, Dec. 19, at 1 p.m. Lane survived both the USS Arizona and the USS Nevada. He was a radioman on the USS Arizona and saw Japanese torpedo

bombers attacking ships docked at Pearl Harbor on the morning of Dec. Glenn Lane in 7, 1941. Lane was 1942. blown off PHOTO COURTESY OF the battle- USSARIZONA.COM ship while fighting fires and swam through the burning harbor to the USS Nevada, another

doomed ship. It was hit by bombs and a torpedo, forcing the ship aground. After Pearl Harbor, Lane served as a member of combat aircrews, mainly in Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bombers. His military career spanned 30 years and three wars. He finally retired as Whidbey Island Naval Air Station’s first command master chief. Anderson said she’s been working to ensure the memorial service is done with full military honors.

Lane’s ashes will be interred in the USS Arizona under the waves of Pearl Harbor. “Divers will take him down and place his ashes in the gun turrets of the ship,� Anderson said. Lane was born Jan. 29, 1918 in Iowa. He and his first wife, Beverly, moved to Oak Harbor in 1960 and raised six children. Beverly, his biggest booster, passed away in 2007. He remarried last year and had been living with his new wife, Abbe, in Sedro-Woolley.

tion by creating and condoning an intimidating, hostile and offensive work environment,� a violation of Department of Navy policy on sexual harassment. The release states Rear Adm. Thomas Shannon, Commander, Carrier Strike Group 1, found Jackson guilty of UCMJ Article 92 for violation of a lawful general order, Article 133 for conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman and was awarded non-judicial punishment.

sions. Sometimes being confined can make the problem worse. Go slowly in introducing your dog to a crate. Feed them in the crate, keep their toy in it, and have the crate out in the area of the house where you spend most of your time. Close the door with the dog in the crate when you are home with them, and gradually increase the amount of time they stay in it. As always, praise them for good behavior. Remember, you always get the behavior you reward. Think of your veterinarian as your dog’s psychiatrist. They are trained in behavior problems, and can prescribe medications to help manage those problems. Medication alone is not the answer, but it can provide a valuable tool to help your dog to achieve a better quality of life. Note: I wanted to thank everyone who donated to our holiday food drive on behalf of WAIF. With your help we collected 368 pounds of food for the homeless animals of our community. Dr. Kiel is the U.S. Army veterinarian currently supporting NAS Whidbey Island and Naval Station Everett. His columns appear the first and third Friday of each month.
