CM1 Evan Brohamer gets a welcome-home kiss from Shannon Farber as 180
Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 4 return Thursday, Aug.
15, from a deployment of more than seven months to the European, African
and Central Command areas of responsibility. NMCB 5 is also returning to the
battalions’ homeport of Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme; NMCB 3 is
deploying in their stead. Stories, more photos, Pages 12-14.
GOOD TO BE HOME
Now that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has reduced
the number of furlough days from 11 to six — effec-
tively ending the furlough this week — the commissary
at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, has re-
sumed its normal seven-day-a-week schedule.
The commissary had closed on Mondays due to staff-
ing shortages brought about by the furlough. On Aug.
19, it resumed its normal Monday hours of 11 a.m. to 7
p.m.
The Seabee Museum closed Sundays and Mondays
after the furlough took effect. It has resumed its Monday
hours but will remain closed Sundays.
MuseumDirector Lara Godbille, Ph.D., explained that
Sunday staffing was handled through a contract that re-
cently expired; only the Monday closures were a direct
result of the furlough.
Hagel announced Tuesday, Aug. 6, that the number of
furlough days would be reduced because the military had
been able to find savings elsewhere.

Question: My husband is a geobachelor stationed
at Naval Base Ventura County while our family lives
in Las Vegas. Recently, he’s started standing watch
in the barracks and can’t come home as often. What
are these watches for, and why can’t they do them on
weekdays instead of weekends so my husband can see
his family?
Answer: I understand your concern and your desire
to spend as much time as possible with your Sailor.
The additional watch is a once-per-month require-
ment we are asking of our senior geographical bache-
lors as part of their military obligation. The additional
watch is a newly established requirement for daily
roving patrols in single Sailor housing, part of the
Navy’s larger effort to curb alcohol-related incidents
and sexual assaults.
Making the decision to be a geographical bachelor
is a diffcult one for any Sailor and his or her fam-
ily; however, one’s status as a geographical bachelor
cannot be used to avoid the requirements of military
service. Service comes with obligations and duty. This
roving patrol is one such obligation, and not one that
can be waived because a Sailor has chosen to live
apart from his or her family. We try to minimize the
burden on Sailors and families as much as possible,
but we still have a mission to be met. Protecting our
fellow Sailors and ensuring they live in a safe environ-
ment are critical to ensuring our mission readiness.
It’s the right thing to do, for our installation and our
Navy.

The Department of Defense (DoD) has
announced its plan to extend benefits to
same-sex spouses of uniformed service
members and DoD civilian employees.
DoD officials said earlier this month
that they will make spousal and family
benefits available no later than Sept. 3,
2013, regardless of sexual orientation, as
long as service member-sponsors provide
a valid marriage certificate.
Entitlements such as TRICAREenroll-
ment, basic allowance for housing (BAH)
and family separation allowance are ret-
roactive to June 26, 2013, the date the U.S.
Supreme Court ruled that Section Three
of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)
is unconstitutional.
Any claims to entitlements before that
date will not be granted.
For those members married after June
26, entitlements begin at the date of mar-
riage.
In addition, because same-sex military
couples who are not stationed in a jurisdic-
tion that permits same-sex marriage would
have to travel to another jurisdiction to
marry, the department will implement
policies to allowmilitary personnel in such
a relationship non-chargeable leave for the
purpose of traveling to a jurisdiction
where such a marriage may occur.
DoD officials said this will provide ac-
celerated access to the full range of ben-
efits offered to married military couples
and help level the playing field between
opposite-sex and same-sex couples seeking
to be married.
For civilian benefits administered gov-
ernment-wide to federal employees, DoD
will follow the Office of Personnel Man-
agement and the Department of Labor’s
guidance to ensure that the same benefits
currently available to heterosexual spous-
es are also available to legally married
same-sex spouses.
The Aug. 14 announcement came after
a review of the department’s benefit poli-
cies following the Supreme Court’s June
26 ruling and in consultation with the De-
partment of Justice and other executive
branch agencies.

Nearly 400 people turned out for this
year’s Multicultural Day outside the Sea-
bee Chapel at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC), Port Hueneme, Aug. 8, which
included food samples from 10 cuisines
from around the globe.
“This is a chance, literally, to experience
a taste of some of the many cultures and
nationalities that make up this diverse
command,” said Capt. Larry Vasquez,
NBVC’s commanding officer.

The1940marqueetotheoldMayfair Theater,

Restoration work is expected to begin
soon on the marquee that once graced the
Mayfair Theater in downtown Ventura
— a classic example of 1940s theater sig-
nage — in preparation for being added to
an upcoming permanent exhibit on World
War II at the Seabee Museum at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
For many years, the marquee has been
sitting in a field near the Ventura County
Fairgrounds. The theater itself, located at
793 E. Santa Clara St. — at the corner of
Santa Clara and Ash streets — burned in
2000 and was demolished in August 2004.
Today, the site is filled with condomini-
ums.
The museum director, Dr. Lara God-
bille said the sign was donated to the mu-
seum earlier this year. The Navy Seabee

Crowded school parking lots and cross-
ing guards on the corner signal that chil-
dren are heading back to school.
Here are some safety tips fromthe Amer-
ican Academy of Pediatrics for parents to
promote safe school commutes:
School bus
• Wait for the bus to stop before ap-
proaching it from the curb.
• Do not move around on the bus.
• Check to see that no other traffic is
coming before crossing the street.
• Make sure to always remain in clear
view of the bus driver.
Car
• All passengers should wear a seat belt
and/or an age- and size-appropriate car
safety seat or booster seat.
• Your child should ride in a car safety
seat with a harness as long as possible and
then ride in a belt-positioning booster seat.
Your child is ready for a booster seat when
she has reached the top weight or height
allowed for her seat, her shoulders are
above the topharness slots, or her ears have
reached the top of the seat.
• Your child should ride in a belt-posi-
tioning booster seat until the vehicle’s seat
belt fits properly, usually when the child
reaches about 4-foot-9 and is between 8 to
12 years of age. This means that the child
is tall enough to sit against the vehicle seat
back with her legs bent at the knees and
feet hanging down and the shoulder belt
lies across the middle of the chest and
shoulder, not the neck or throat; the lap
belt is low and snug across the thighs, and
not the stomach.
• All children under 13 years of age
should ride in the rear seat of vehicles. If
you must drive more children than can fit
in the rear seat (when carpooling, for ex-
ample), move the front-seat passenger’s seat
as far back as possible.
Bike
• Always wear a bicycle helmet, no mat-
ter how short or long the ride.
• Ride on the right, in the same direction
as auto traffic.
• Use appropriate hand signals.
• Respect traffic lights and stop signs.
• Wear brightly colored clothing to in-
crease visibility.
• Know the “rules of the road.” www.
aap.org/family/bicycle.htm
Walking to School
• Make sure your child’s walk to a school
is a safe route with well-trained adult cross-
ing guards at every intersection. Carefully
consider whether or not your child is ready
to walk to school without adult supervi-
sion.
• In neighborhoods with higher levels of
traffic, consider starting a “walking school
bus,” in which an adult accompanies a
group of children walking to school.
— For any K-12 education related questions,
please contact the NBVC school liaison
officer at 989-5211 or [email protected]

Wednesday, Aug. 28, is the last day
to toss a can of tuna or other nonper-
ishable food iteminto one of the eight
yellow bins at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) to help with the Feds
Feed Families food drive.
The annual nationwide event, which
began in 2009, helps replenish the
shelves of food banks across the coun-
try, which often run low during the
summer months.
The food collected at NBVCwill go
to Ventura County residents in
need.
At NBVCPort Hueneme, the yellow
bins can be found at the Seabee Cha-
pel, the Welcome Center, the Navy
Exchange, the dental and medical
buildings and the Fleet &Family Sup-
port Center.
At NBVCPoint Mugu, the bins are
located inside Bldg. 1, at the Navy
Exchange and at the dental clinic.
The Religious Ministries Team is
organizing this effort. For more infor-
mation, call 982-4358.

“So we built the wall. And all the wall
was joined together to half its height, for
the people had a mind to work.”
— Nehemiah 4:6; ESV
The life of a Reservist is a vigorous
one, to say the least, and the life of a
Reserve Seabee is even more complex.
To many active Sailors and Bees, we’re
only Reservists, playing Navy one week-
end a month, plus two weeks a year. This
perception has been challenged over the
last decade as Reservists have served
honorably alongside their active coun-
terparts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The life of a Reserve chaplain can be
quite vigorous as well. Many of us serve
in local congregations as well as in our
duty stations. The “one weekend a month
plus two weeks a year” does not meet
our mantra. We try to be available to our
Sailors at all times. As they juggle the
struggles of civilian life and service, we
are there to help carry their burdens.
I am the chaplain of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 28, a
unit that will be deploying to Afghani-
stan this fall, then decommissioning
upon completion of its mission. Al-
though NMCB 28 has been primarily
based in the Southern states, it now en-
compasses all 50 states and more than
60 Navy Operational Support Centers.
The average age of the Bees in the bat-
talion is 24, but the chief ’s mess has
ample experience.
Our mission, spread throughout the
country of Afghanistan, is to train the
Afghanistan National Army (ANA) and
reduce our footprint. While this is my
first deployment, it marks the end of a
prestigious run for more senior members.
The morale seems to be high, and many
are looking to make a difference here at
the end of operations in Afghanistan.
For myself, there is a personal connec-
tion to this deployment. This war start-
ed on my birthday back in 2001. I had
family in and around Washington, D.C.,
and the memory of that fateful day still
lingers in my mind. Some in our com-
pany are from New York, where Ground
Zero still whispers the names of those
who lost their lives that fateful autumn
day.
NMCB 28’s Bees are ready to roll, ful-
filling the words of Nehemiah: “Those
who carried burdens were loaded in such
a way that each labored on the work with
one hand and held his weapon with the
other. And each of the builders had his
sword strapped at his side while he
built”(Nehemiah 4:17b-18; ESV).

The Seabee Chapel at Naval Base Ven-
tura County, Port Hueneme, is hosting a
once-a-month Family Fun Night, where
base families can come together for fel-
lowship and free ice cream.
“It’s a time for everyone to get together
and have fun,” said Bethany Dodds, the
director of religious education for the
Protestant congregation.
The second Family Fun Night was
Wednesday, Aug. 14. Youngsters drew
pictures, then watched movies with a re-
ligious theme.
Tricia Jean-Louis, 11, drew a picture of
a car for her 3-year-old sister, Abigail, then
started over when the youngster explained
that no, she’d wanted a “cart.” Tricia and
Abigail were there with their mom, Jo-
hanne; their dad, Utilitiesman 1st Class
Josener Jean-Louis is a Mobile Utilities
Support Equipment (MUSE) techni-
cian.
Dodds helped her 2-year-old son, Con-
nor, create a picture for Connor’s dad,
Builder 2nd Class Thad Dodds, who re-
cently deployed with Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 3.
“This is a time for fellowship,” Dodds
said. “It’s something fun to do.”
The next event is at 6 p.m. Sept. 20.

Part of an old farmhouse
complex that has been convert-
ed into transitional living quar-
ters for women and children got
a fresh coat of paint last month,
courtesy of volunteers from Na-
val Base Ventura County
(NBVC) and a visiting ship,
USS Cape St. George (CG-
71).
Six Reservists from Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion
28 also stopped by.
Lt. Lesa Welliver, staff chap-
lain at the base, organized the
July 25 community relations
event that had nearly two dozen
Sailors sanding down and re-
painting the interior walls of
one of the units at the Kingdom
Center, located off South Rose
Avenue in Oxnard.
Welliver found out about the
faith-based complex from a
member of the Women’s Bible
Study group at the Seabee Cha-
pel. She contacted director
Cindy Wilson and arranged the
event.
“I like doing projects like
this,” Fire Controlman 2nd
Class Ryan Davisson said as he
helped empty a bedroom. “It
makes me feel good.”
Davisson and the cruiser’s
other 300-plus Sailors had been
in town for about a week while
the ship was undergoing work-
ups at NBVC Port Hueneme.
They were heading back home
to San Diego the next day.
Lt. Jonathan Rozendaal, the
ship’s chaplain, worked with
Welliver to involve nearly a
dozen members of the Cape St.
George crew.
“I’m glad we got the chance
to help out,” said Cryptologic
Technician Collection 2nd Class
Tyshawn Priester.
Eight different churches of
different faiths pool their re-
sources to operate the Kingdom
Center. It has six transition liv-
ing areas where women and
their children can live for 12 to
24 months while they attend
classes and search for jobs.
“This is different than other
shelters in the area,” Wilson said
as she led the Sailors on a tour
of the complex.
She pointed out a large gar-
den where the women grow their
own food and herbs, and a large
playground area for the chil-
dren.
Chickens roam the property,
their eggs providing many a
breakfast.
Until the end of July, the cen-
ter had maintained 20 emer-
gency beds for women in crisis
situations, but funding issues
forced that part of the complex
to close. Wilson hopes it will
reopen soon.

A decades-old, cable-driven crane that
has been undergoing repairs at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme, is ex-
pected to return soon to its spot in Heri-
tage Park, a historic-equipment display
area near the Sunkist Gate.
Steelworker-rated Seabees assigned to
the Naval Facilities Engineering and Ex-
peditionary Warfare Center have been
working on the crane for several months
in the Construction Equipment Division,
located in a remote corner of the base near
Victoria Avenue.
They’re also working on “Little Debbie,”
a small orange bulldozer that had a long
career in Antarctica.
Pat Spencer, the weld shop lead, called
the rehabilitation work “a special proj-
ect.”
“They needed to get cleaned up,” he
explained of the history-laden pieces. “The
crane was a huge safety hazard.”
The workers aren’t sure how old the
crane is or how long it has been outside,
exposed to the sea air and ocean breezes
that erode metal and turn it into rust.
Aplate on the crane identifies it as hav-
ing been made by Cranemobile, a division
of Bay City Shovels Inc., Bay City, Mich.
No year is given.
Another metal plate that was found
dangling on the crane says it once be-
longed to the Bureau of Ordnance, NAV-
TORPSTA, Keyport Yard, Wash. — a
torpedo station.
“This kind of crane could have been
used to move torpedoes from one spot to
another, or in recovery, pulling them up
fromdown low,”Spencer said. “But at this
point it’s all guesswork for us.”
The Seabees aren’t concerned with get-
ting the crane working again — only to
make it safe and give visitors “the essence
of what it looked like,” Spencer said.
Steelworker 2nd Class Jared Campos
and Steelworker 2nd Class MatthewRush
are currently working on the project,
which has involved sandblasting and re-
painting the vehicle, then making a new
boomfromscratch. The old one is a hunk
of rust, barely clinging together, with
sharp edges jutting out —“a major reason
why it’s a safety hazard,” Spencer said.
The Seabees used old scrap metal to cre-
ate a new boom, and they’ve enjoyed the
welding project.
“It’s nice to be able to apply our skills,”
Campos said.
Rush said he likes being able to restore
a piece of history.
“It’s giving me a broad view of how it
used to be back in the day,” he said. “I
want to be able to bring that back and
restore it.”
The crane appears to have been multi-
functional. The boom could be removed
and replaced with other attachments, turn-
ing it into a backhoe, perhaps, or a shov-
el.
“It could be whatever they needed it to
be,” Spencer said. “It was clearly a multi-
purpose rig. It was the Sherman Tank of
cranes.”
The seat swivels, so a driver could move
the crane forward, then turn around and
operate the boom.
There are no motherboards, no com-
puter chips, not even hydraulics.
“Everything is driven by chains and
gears,”Spencer says, pointing to different
parts of the crane where gears are clearly
visible.
The Seabees hope to have the project
done in the next few weeks. At that time,
the vehicle will return to Heritage Park at
the corner of Harris Street and 23rd Av-
enue, the display area across from the
White House where retirement ceremonies
are sometimes performed.
Visitors will see a crane painted gun-
metal gray, with the tires painted black.
And on the interior sides of the boom
will be a mystery for future historians. In
raised lettering are the words “Campos”
and “Rush,” plus other names of those
who have worked on the boom.
“We’re still trying to figure out what
these words mean,” you can imagine re-
storers saying decades fromnow. “At this
point, it’s all guesswork for us.”

The crane operates with gears and chains;
there are no hydraulics.
SW2 Jared Campos examines the new
boom he and other Seabees fashioned out
of scrap metal to replace the original, which
was declared unsafe after spending many
years exposed to the salt-laden seaside
air of Naval Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme.

NMCRS volunteer
It’s late August, the days are starting to
get shorter and college football is around
the corner. It’s back-to-school time!
Money spent on after-school programs,
sports and new clothing quickly adds up.
NMCRS offers financial counseling to
help service members and their families
create a budget so they can see their spend-
ing habits and start or promote a savings
plan.
Tracking and allotting money can calm
anxiety during this busy time. If money
is put aside during the year —let’s say $10
per month — that would allow you to
spend $120 for back-to-school items. In-
stead, spending $120 during back-to-
school season without saving can create
undue hardship on family finances that
are already stretched thin.
Adhering to this simple plan is just one
of the many ways to be financially com-
fortable and in control with spending.
NMCRS is here to promote financial re-
sponsibility and help parents develop their
own problem-solving capabilities.
The NMCRS Thrift Shop is a great
place to buy clothing and other items for
school. With so many PCS moves taking
place during the summer, the thrift shop
has an abundance of gently worn and new
items. Take advantage of this when think-
ing of places to shop!
Another budget-saving tip is to make
sure you are familiar with the benefits
provided to qualified applicants under the
California National School Breakfast and
Lunch program.
You can never start saving for higher
education too early. One option is the tax-
deferred 529 plan, which is an education
savings plan operated by a state designed
to help families set aside money for col-
lege. Parents can ask grandparents and
friends to donate to the 529 plan in lieu
of gifts. NMCRS can be pivotal in helping
start this discussion, along with setting up
various methods for savings.
While the kids are off learning new
things at school, volunteering can be a
springboardtothe workforce. At NMCRS,
volunteers can beef up their resume by
receiving management training, sharpen-
ing computer skills and taking the steps
towards becoming a financial caseworker.
NMCRS can be a life-saver for spouses
who would like to meet new people and
broaden their skill set. The next volunteer
orientation is from 10 to 11 a.m. Sept. 18.

Cmdr. Thomas M. Santomauro re-
lieved Cmdr. James P. Borghardt as
commanding officer of Air Test and
Evaluation Squadron (VX) 30 in a
change of command ceremony Thurs-
day, July 11, in Hangar 372 at Naval
Base Ventura County, Point Mugu.
Under Borghardt’s leadership, VX-
30 has conducted detachment opera-
tions around the globe in support of
NASA, the Missile Defense Agency
and Space-X.
Borghardt is moving on to Naval Air
Systems Command in Patuxent River,

Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 5 finished turning over the Sea-
bees’ Pacific Naval Construction Force
missions to NMCB 3 during a transfer
of authority ceremony on Camp Shields,
the Seabee camp in Okinawa, Japan, Aug.
18.
The change of charge marked the of-
ficial end of an eight-month deployment
for NMCB 5 after a two-week turnover
with NMCB 3.
Capt. Rodney Moore, commodore of
the 30th Naval Construction Regiment,
was the keynote speaker for the turnover
ceremony.
“I had the pleasure of meeting and
talking to the people you worked with on
the exercises. Each one was extremely
grateful for your exceptional work,” he
told NMCB 5 personnel. “You did an
excellent job throughout the Pacific.”
NMCB 5 arrived early in January to
Camp Shields and relieved NMCB 74.
While headquartered at Camp Shields,
the battalion sent Seabee details to 20
locations in 13 countries across the Pa-
cific and supported several multination-
al military exercises. “When our people
come back from all of these exercises, it’s
exciting to hear their stories about what
they did and who they met and how they
interacted with not just the militaries but
with locals and the children,” said Cmdr.
Cameron Geertsema, the commanding
officer of NMCB 5. “There is a collective
feeling that we made a difference and we
were out there building relationships that
go beyond the military relationship; they
were personal relationships between
friends.”
The Seabees have more enduring en-
gagements at Civic Construction Action
Details (CCADs). NMCB 5 sent CCADs
to Timor-Leste, the Philippines and Cam-
bodia, where they worked with local
military, government officials and citizens
improving government infrastructure,
health clinics and schools. In Cambodia,
the Seabees also engaged in water well
operations to dig and repair wells.
At a recent ribbon-cutting in Western
Timor-Leste, where a Seabee CCAD re-
habilitated a health clinic, U.S. Ambas-
sador to Timor Leste Judith Fergin said,
“It’s absolutely amazing to see the great
amount of work that a small number of
Seabees made in such a short time. You
may not realize, but the impact you have
made here is beyond words.”
The Seabees in Timor-Leste renovated
a total of six health clinics and built class-
rooms at 24 schools. They also repaired
ambulances and generators and improved
water filtration and plumbing systems.
“Throughout all of the locations we
distributed our people, their operations
and conduct built upon the Seabee lega-
cy in the Pacific,” said Geertsema. “One
thing I have noticed since I took com-
mand in June is that in everything they
do, NMCB 5’s Seabees have a pride and
professionalism that is second to none.”
After NMCB 5’s battalion colors were
lowered at the transfer of authority cer-
emony on Camp Shields, NMCB 3’s col-
ors were raised.
For this deployment, NMCB3 has split
into nine details to perform critical con-
struction projects in remote island areas
such as Timor-Leste, Tonga, Cambodia
and the Philippines. The teams will also
conduct operations in Atsugi, Yokosuka
and Okinawa, Japan; Chinhae, South
Korea and China Lake, Calif.

NMCB 4
MANDA BAY, Kenya – Developing
countries like Kenya often lack basic ne-
cessities and have poor roads and infra-
structure, particularly in remote areas.
Following the completion of a runway
extension project, the Seabees of Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB)
4’s Detail Manda Bay were asked to repair
the main route to the Kenyan Naval
Base.
“Now that the runway project is com-
plete, it’s about staying busy and preparing
for challenges to come,”said Chief Equip-
ment Operator Pierre Potter, officer in
charge of the detail.
The trucks that use the road support
Camp Simba, where the Seabees are lo-
cated, and the adjacent Kenyan Naval
(K-NAV) Base.
The road is usually muddy and unstable,
with trucks that handle fuel and food get-
ting stuck on a weekly basis. But with
rainy season in full swing, storms left the
road impassable; it could not withstand
the weight of the vehicles.
Equipment Operator 2nd Class Kyle
Penny and his team had provided aid on
several occasions, recovering many dis-
abled vehicles along the damaged road. It
was only a matter of time before the Sea-
bees would take it upon themselves to
head out and repair it.
The Seabees placed mixed aggregate and
then used a grader and a roller to compact
the roadbed. They created a more stable
surface, rapidly repairing 100 meters of
damaged road. They accomplished this
major improvement with minimal diffi-
culty and in cooperation with the K-NAV
personnel.
Now that the main supply route has
been repaired, K-NAV and Camp Simba
can look forward to efficient and reliable
food, water and fuel deliveries.
The Seabees of NMCB4 Detail Manda
Bay not only improved relations with the
Kenyan military, but also created goodwill
with the local community.

Dozens of families stopped by
a back-to-school fair at the Navy
Exchange at Naval Base Ventura
County, Port Hueneme, Thurs-
day, Aug. 15, picking up free in-
formation, sampling energy
drinks and sandwiches and enter-
ing a raffle for a bike.
As parents picked up safety tips
and other information at tables
set up by Federal Fire, Child and
Youth Programs, the Fleet &
Family Support Center and oth-
er agencies, youngsters took part
in hula hoop contests and a cake
walk and got their faces paint-
ed.
Everyone got to watch the
Channel Islands High School
dance teams perform.
“This is an awesome event,”
said Veronica Mijares, a fire in-
spector with Fed Fire at Naval
Base Ventura County. “We’re able
to give out back-to-school advice
to kids who walk to school and
the bus stop —‘stranger danger,’
what to do if there’s an emer-
gency —and at the same time we
can give out fire safety informa-
tion.”
Over in the contest area, the
hula hoop competition turned
into an endurance race. The final
round was a 4-minute marathon
between two 9-year-olds, Nevaeh
Williams, the daughter of Nor-
man and Steelworker Construc-
tion Recruit Angela Santana of
Naval Mobile Construction Bat-
talion 3, and Isaiah Braswell, the
nephewof Sherine Jones, the ser-
vices supervisor at the NEX. Fi-
nally, Isaiah’s hoop hit the floor
and Nevaeh was declared the win-
ner.
The victory was a nice going-
away present for Nevaeh to give
to her mom, who deployed a few
days later with the battalion.

What happens when a massive cargo
ship slams into a pier in the Marshall Is-
lands? The ship wins, and the pier ends
up on the seafloor. This is where Under-
water Construction Team (UCT) 2 Con-
struction Dive Detachment (CDD) Alfa
enters the picture.
As part of the Pacific Partnership 2013
exercise, CDD Alfa deployed to the Mar-
shall Islands to salvage the destroyed sec-
tions of the Ebeye Pier and repair the
structure so it could be used to support
humanitarian aid and disaster relief
(HADR) in the future.
Ebeye is a small island, less than 80 acres
and home to over 11,000 Marshallese. The
pier is the only one Ebeye has. It is a high
traffic area for the entire community and
is used by thousands daily — or it was
until the accident left a 10-foot by 20-foot
hole in the south end.
The joint project partnered UCT 2 with
the U.S. Army and the host nation. The
KALJUR (Kwajalein Atoll Joint Utilities
Resource) and KALGov (Kwajalein Atoll
Local Government) volunteered personnel
and equipment, including a large crane
that pulled the concrete out of the water
and secured it on land.
On Ebeye, nothing goes to waste. The
salvaged sections of the pier, some weigh-
ing more than 10 tons, are being used to
protect the valuable coastline from ero-
sion.
The pier repair was designed by Lt.
Cmdr. Charlie Kubic, who just ended his
tour as commanding officer of UCT 2.
The pier was built by the Japanese dur-
ing their World War II occupation of the
island. Because information on its original
design and construction wasn’t available,
Kubic decided the best course of action
would be to return the structure to its
original appearance.
A site survey conducted by UCT 2 de-
termined that the original concrete deck
panels were 10 feet long, 4 feet wide and
10 inches thick, reinforced with No. 6 re-
inforcing steel spaced 6 inches on center.
This gave the original reinforced steel pan-
els a steel ratio 0.0092.
“My concern after seeing the large
amount of steel placed in the original con-
crete slabs was ensuring our repair would
meet the under-reinforced condition re-
quired by the American Concrete Insti-
tutes code,” Kubic said.
The replacement slabs were prefabri-
cated in Guam by the U.S. Army’s 84th
Engineering Battalion and shipped to
Kwajalein, were they were placed by the
Seabees of UCT 2.
“The results of UCT 2’s project repair-
ing the Ebeye inter-island pier are fantas-
tic,” said Major Savo, the officer in charge
of the host nation.
“Thanks to UCT 2, it is now much
safer. The project also contributes direct-
ly to the humanitarian assistance effort in
that it makes it much easier and safer to
connect hoses for bulk water delivery and
distribute other relief supplies in the event
of a water crisis.”
Kwajalein was CDD Alfa’s last stop
during its six-month deployment across
the Pacific. The Seabees also visited Kau-
ai, the Philippines and South Korea.

Repairs to the pier on Ebeye Island are nearly complete. Officials from the
host nation said the repairs would make it easier to connect hoses for
delivery of water and other relief supplies if there were ever a water crisis.

The Fleet & Family
Support Center
By Kirstin Davy
FFSC
Many separating or retiring service
members simply move on to a post-
military career and a new life adven-
ture. But for some entrepreneurial
souls, “chasing the American dream”
means working for themselves.
The lure of owning and running a
small business or franchise can be
strong, but it requires careful plan-
ning and execution. Thinking through
the right steps to take, questions to
ask and resources to use can be con-
fusing and a bit daunting.
Thanks to our partnership with the
Small Business Administration(SBA),
we can help!
The “Operation Boots to Business”
program builds upon the SBA’s long-
standing legacy of helping entrepre-
neurs get started —including 100,000
veterans a year.
This two-day training for transi-
tioning service members provides
tools and resources to effectively
evaluate business opportunities, learn
planning strategies for launching and
growing a small business and become
successful entrepreneurs.

program, visit http://www.sba.gov/

themto sample the offerings at 12
booths, each operated by a differ-
ent base organization. Ten booths
offered options ranging fromCa-
jun food to Peruvian indulgenc-
es.
“We just love the gumbo,” said
Fire Controlman3rdClass Juane-
sha Bethea, watching 11-month-
old daughter Amia grab tiny fist-
fuls of rice. Bethea, who works in
the Region Legal Service Office,
was waiting for her husband,
Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Eian
Bethea of the newly returned Na-
val Mobile Construction Battal-
ion 5, to join them for lunch.
As in previous years, the food
offerings were part of a contest
for bragging rights, which were
takenby the Peruvianfoodbooth,
run by the Sailors of the Point
Mugu Galley.
“There was somuchgreat food,”
said judge Deborah Williams, one
of four people tasked with select-
ing winners. “It was a close
call.”
Naval Branch Health Clinic
Port Hueneme took second place,
inpart because of the on-site grill-
ing efforts of several hospital
corpsmen, who kept two charcoal
grills stackedwithchickenskewers
throughout the event.
In third place was NBVC’s
Chief Petty Officers Mess, which
was cooking up Amia’s favorite
Cajun food in a Mardi Gras-
themed booth.
In previous years, cultural en-
tertainers performed on stage
while revelers dined; this year, lo-
cal radio station Q104.7 FMpro-
vided music instead.
“We wanted to try something
different this year,”said Culinary
Specialist 1st Class Brian Palmer
of Fleet Logistics Support Squad-
ron 55, this year’s Multicultural
Day chairman. “This is a great
way to get together and enjoy our
differences and celebrate our
similarities.”
to fund the restoration.
At 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26, a crane
will hoist the marquee from the emp-
ty lot and place it on a flatbed truck
for transport to the museum. There,
it will be cleaned and repainted by
hand. The neon tubes will be repaired
and refilled.
Once restored to its original ele-
gance, the marquee will be displayed
in the World War II exhibit as an ex-
ample of what families saw and how
they spent their time while their Sea-
bees were fighting in the Atlantic and
Pacific theaters.
The Mayfair Theater opened in
1940. Architect S. Charles Lee, who
designed many theaters in Southern
California and Mexico, used the
Streamline Moderne style, featuring
a swooping roof, porthole-shaped
adornments and the crown-shaped
marquee.

10 cuisines represented
ing kayaking, paddle boarding, body
boarding and boogie boarding. Partici-
pants can try out the equipment to see
what they like.
Landlubbers will also find plenty to do,
with free competitions starting at 1:20 p.m.
In addition to beach volleyball, there will
be an obstacle course, race for the flag,
human pyramid, tug of war and sand
castle contest.
Snow cones and pizza will be sold, and
families are invited to bring their own pic-
nic lunch.
The event is sponsored by Child and
Youth Programs (CYP) and Morale, Wel-
fare and Recreation (MWR).
“CYP and MWRare happy to offer the
NBVC Family Beach Day and Surf Clin-
ic as a way to celebrate the end of summer,
frequently our best weather of the year,”
said MWRMarketing Director Dan Alp-
ern. “This is a great opportunity to check
out the fun items available through the
Outdoor Recreation program and maybe
plan a ‘stay-cation’ at the Point Mugu
Beach Motel. For our new patrons, the
water safety brief and surf clinic are a
great introduction to the California life-
style.”
Starting at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, a surf
clinic will begin, but this two-day event is
separate from Beach Day and a fee is be-
ing charged. It’s open to adults and chil-
dren 9 and older and is being run by
NBVC’s Aquatics Program. Cost is $40
for military personnel and their depen-
dents, $45 for Department of Defense
civilians. The event continues from 2:30
to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. To register,
call 982-4752.
