The first time Michael Cheng saw
the Blue Angels, he was a fifth-grad-
er in San Francisco.
“Our teacher let us on the roof so
we could see them,” he recalls. “We
never sawthe real action down by the
wharf, but we could see themfly over-
head — and of course we could hear
them.
“I thought it was the coolest thing
in the world.”
The next time Cheng sees the Blue
Angels in San Francisco, he’ll be part
of the team.
Cheng, now a 38-year-old lieuten-
ant commander, found out July 13
that he will be serving with the Navy
Flight Demonstration Squadron for
the next two years.

Question: I heard that the Dal-
las Cowboys are coming to Naval
Base Ventura County. How do I get
in to meet them?
Answer: I’ve been getting
asked about this everywhere I go.
Who’d have thought there were so
many Cowboys fans on the West
Coast?
The Dallas Cowboys are using
Point Mugu as their landing field
on their way to training camp in
Oxnard. They will land Saturday,
July 28, around 2 p.m. and have
offered to conduct a 45-minute
autograph session at the VR-55
hangar on Ronald Reagan Boule-
vard.
At the team’s request, this ses-
sion will be open to active duty
military members in uniform and
their dependents. Dependents
old enough to have dependent ID
cards must be prepared to show
them.
Everyone will be allowed to
choose which player they’d like to
see – there will be multiple lines
and tables for the 80-plus players
and coaches – and will be limited
to one signature per person. Navy
Exchange staff will also be on
hand selling Cowboys memorabilia
should you wish to purchase an
item to have signed.
Opportunities like this are part
of what makes NBVC such a unique
and interesting place to live and
work, and I need your feedback to
make it even better! Keep submit-
ting your questions and suggestions
here by emailing [email protected]
mil, on Facebook at www.facebook.

About 400 Sailors, veterans and spous-
es looking for employment attended a July
10 job fair at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC), Port Hueneme —and only com-
panies that had positions immediately
available were invited.
“Hiring Our Heroes,” held at Duke’s
Place, was a joint venture of the U.S.
Navy’s Shipmates to Workmates program
— which helps Sailors caught in the cur-
rent military drawdown find jobs — the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other
federal, state and local agencies.
More than 50 companies needing work-
ers sent representatives to the fair to col-
lect resumes and conduct preliminary
interviews. Among them were Quest Di-
agnostics, Haas Automation, the Ventura
County Sheriff’s Department and San
Miguel Produce in Oxnard.
Marisa Stubbs, a senior staffing special-
ist for Quest Diagnostics, said her com-
pany has more than 150 openings. Drivers,
lab assistants and phlebotomists are
needed, and there are jobs available in
customer service and billing, some of them
at managerial levels. Most of the jobs are
in West Hills, Valencia, Cypress and San
Juan Capistrano.
She was enthusiastic about the prospect
of hiring people with a military back-
ground.
“We have a lot of veterans already,”she
said. “Some have moved high up after
starting in minimum-wage positions.”
She said the military helps create an
employee who shows up on time, is pre-
sentable and respectable and who follows
directions but still asks questions when
necessary.
Jo Ann Olivares, human resources direc-
tor for San Miguel Produce, was looking
for all that plus some specific skill sets.
“We need people who have experience
driving heavy equipment,” she said. “We
need forklift drivers, and we have a big
shipping department, so we need truck
drivers who can go from our fields to the
markets in Los Angeles.”
Equipment Operator 2nd Class Padraig
Martin, with the Naval Facilities Expedi-
tionary Logistics Center, talked at length
with Olivares. The father of a 6-month
old, he leaves the Navy Oct. 1 and wants
400 attend Hiring Our Heroes job fair

As she stood there in an elegant wedding
gown with a price tag of more than $1,300,
Operations Specialist 1st Class Maritza
Chavez of Air Test and Evaluation Squad-
ron (VX) 30 began to blush.
“I love this dress,” she said. “I’ve never
been dress-shopping in my life, let alone
wedding-dress shopping. I’m always on
the go.”
A few minutes later, the dress was hers
— and she didn’t pay a dime.
“I’m so grateful for this opportunity,”
she said. Chavez’s dress was one of 200 at
Camarillo Bridal —ranging in price from
$500 to $3,000 — made available to the
military through Brides Across Ameri-
ca.
The organization gave the dresses to ac-
tive duty personnel — brides or their fi-
ancés —who will be or have been deployed
within the past five years to Iraq, Afghan-
istan, Qatar, Bahrain, Libya, Kuwait or
Japan. Those who received a dress must
be engaged or have had a civil ceremony
and are planning a wedding within the
next 18 months.
Giveaways took place all over the Unit-
ed States between June 25 and July 17.
Camarillo Bridal, the only retail shop in
Ventura County taking part in the pro-
gram, held its event July 10 and 11.
Chavez and Operations Specialist 1st
Class Veronica Dinse, also of VX-30, vis-
ited Camarillo Bridal late in the afternoon
of July 10. By then, the store had given
out 22 dresses. Chavez and Dinse each
took one more. The next day, the store
gave away 20 more, for a total of 44.
“We were hoping to give away more, but
we set our sights high,” said Tabitha Big-
Gowns free for wedding belles

Three-hundred and fifty free backpacks
and a plethora of school supplies were
made available to children going into kin-
dergarten through 12th grade Saturday,
July 21, as Operation Homefront Southern
California returned to Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) to help families get
their youngsters ready for the first day of
school.
“I love coming back to this base,” said
Tricia De La Paz, director of operations
for the organization. “We’ve been doing
this for several years now, so I’ve been able
to see some of the kids grow up.”
Between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., families
lined up outside the Fleet and Family Sup-
port Center at NBVCPort Hueneme. They
had all registered for the giveaway and had
met the financial requirements to partici-
pate.
With volunteers from the Naval Con-
struction Training Center (NCTC) and
other commands escorting them, children
each selected a backpack, then made their
way down a long table choosing school
supplies. First came a ruler, then a pencil
sharpener, then filler paper, binders, mark-
ers, pencil holder, spiral notebooks, the
always-essential bottle of hand sanitizer,
crayons, pens, file folders, erasers, colored
pencils, highlighters, a bookmark and a
glue stick.
“Nobody expected this much stuff,”said
Construction Mechanic 3rd Class Bran-
don Johnson, a volunteer from NCTC
who helped about 20 youngsters fill their
backpacks throughout the morning.
De La Paz said the event is intended to
not only help families stretch their budget,
but also to get children excited about the
first day of school and the newadventures
that await them.
“It also helps families that are new to
the area,” she said. “It gives them some-
thing to look forward to and it welcomes
them to the community.”
Elisabeth Tyler, whose husband, Equip-
ment Operator 1st Class Gary Tyler is with
Underwater ConstructionTeam2, brought
7-year-old Lilly and 5-year-old Luke to
get their school supplies.
“I think this is a great program,” the
mother said. “It’s one less thing for fami-
lies to worry about. It’s one less hassle. It
really helps out, and I’m very grateful.”
Estella Martinez brought her son Chris,
who will be a fifth grader at Laguna Vis-
ta Elementary School, and her daughter,
Adriana, who is going into eighth grade
at Ocean View Junior High School. Her
husband is Aviation Machinist’s Mate 1st
Class Chris Martinez with Navy Opera-
tional Support Center Point Mugu.
“I think this is great,” Adriana said. “I
know it helps out with the prices and
stuff.”
Her mom agreed.
“It’s nice that they do this,”she said. “It
all seems to cost more and more each
year.”

It is almost time to return to school.
Students are collecting their school sup-
plies in their backpacks and are eager to
find out if their best friends will be in their
class next year.
This is also a time for parents to be plan-
ning their child’s return to school. Playing
an active role in their child’s school expe-
rience is the best way for parents to ensure
their child’s educational success.
Studies on parent involvement indicate
that the most accurate predictor of a
child’s achievement in school is the extent
to which the child’s family is able to:
• Create an environment that encour-
ages learning.
• Communicate high yet reasonable ex-
pectations for their child’s achievement
and future career.
• Become involved in the child’s educa-
tion at school and in the community.
Here are some ideas that can help par-
ents provide a family environment that will
support success.
Encouraging learning
Regardless of the student’s grade level,
homework can be an everyday expectation.
If the teacher did not assign homework,
or if the student finishes the homework
quickly, parents should expect the student
to have plenty of books on hand to prac-
tice reading.
Parents should set aside a time and place
to ensure that homework is completed
without distractions. The best way to de-
termine an appropriate amount of time is
to multiply the grade level by 10 minutes.
A first grader should have 10 minutes of
homework; a 12th grader, two hours. How-
ever, depending on the student and the
teacher, that can vary.
There is no doubt that students will be-
gin using the Internet for schoolwork, even
at very young ages. It is important for par-
ents to understand how they and their
student can use it best.
A good online resource is “Parents’
Guide to the Internet,”www.ed.gov/pubs/
parents/internet. It is intended to help
parents — regardless of their technologi-
cal know-how—effectively employ online
resources in their child’s education. The
guide provides parents with an introduc-
tion to the Internet, instructions on how
to navigate it, a glossary of common In-
ternet terminology and suggestions on
how parents can allow their children to
tap into the wonders of the Internet while
safeguarding them from its potential haz-
ards.
Expectations for achievement
Children will often fulfill the expectation
set for them. If a parent expects their stu-
dent to get all B’s on a report card, what
is the student’s motivation to get all A’s?
The goal was met at B’s. Until students
reach about 11th grade, the long-term
reasons for doing well in school have not
sunk in. Therefore, their only motivation
to achieve is the parental expectation.
However, it is important to know your
children and be fully aware of their skills
and abilities. Parents’ expectations should
be reasonable.
Become involved
Becoming involved means establishing
two-way communication between the par-
ent and teacher, school administration or
other parents. When students know their
education is important enough for mom
or dad to take the time to visit the school
to volunteer, spend evenings attending
school meetings, or make a phone call or
send an email to check on a student’s prog-
ress, education becomes a priority for the
student as well.
Ask your child’s teacher how to get in-
volved, and keep asking throughout the
school year as needs change.

with local schools or for any K-12 education-
related question, please call the NBVC school

In this article, I’d like to talk about
time.
We cannot smell or see time. Even our
most powerful scanning electron micro-
scope cannot see it. Our incredible olfac-
tory systemcannot detect the scent of time.
We don’t really have any empirical evidence
of its existence. Nonetheless, daily we see
its effects.
Albert Einstein once quipped, “The only
reason for time is so that everything doesn’t
happen at once.”
Theoretically speaking, there are two
points on Earth that are zero time — two
points of timelessness: the North Pole and
the South Pole. Time lines are vertical, or
longitudinal, and all the lines converge at
the poles. However, even if you were to
stand in the middle of the pole, sadly, you
would still age.
We cannot fully grasp the mystery of
time; however, we can measure it. And if
we canmeasure it, we canuse it toprioritize
what’s really important. Hence, we can
measure time — and time can measure
us.
Missionary AdoniramJudson once said,
“A life spent is irrevocable. It will remain
tobe contemplatedthrougheternity…. The
same may be said of each day. When it is
once past, it is gone forever.”
This is a salient observation: “Once past,
it is gone forever.” Do we spend our time
on things that matter? What is important
to you — I mean really important to
you?
Time is a mystery. Time talks.
One of the most common issues in rela-
tionships is the misuse of time. Often, I
hear things like, “He’s always playing vid-
eo games,” or “She’s always on Face-
book.”
Dr. James F. White, former professor at
DrewUniversity, saidthis about time: “The
way we use our time is a good indication
of what we consider to be of prime impor-
tance in life. We can always be counted on
to find time for those things we consider
most important, thoughwe may not always
be willing to admit to others, or even to
ourselves, what our real priorities are….
Whether it is making money, political ac-
tion or family activities, we find the time
for putting first those things that matter
most to us…. Time talks.”
Perhaps we need to re-evaluate how we
are spending our time.
Remember the words of Judson: “Once
past, it is gone forever.” How you spend
your time reveals your value system. What
do you value? How do you use time?
This week, I urge you to ruminate on
howyou spend your time. Gary Chapman,
author of the book, The Five Love Lan-
guages, wrote, “Acentral aspect of quality
time is togetherness. I do not mean proxim-
ity…. Togetherness has to do with focused
attention.” Let’s focus our attention on
what really matters.
Time. We cannot see it. We cannot hear
it. We cannot smell it. But it talks.
Time talks, and what is it saying to you?

Steve Hancock had never
tried track and field.
He was a wrestler, he ex-
plained, and a football
player — not a shotputter
or a discus thrower.
But the 23-year-old from
Pueblo, Colo., was willing
to give both sports a try,
and while throwing an 8-
pound, 13-ounce shot was
OK — “The more I do it,
the more I’ll probably like
it,” was his reaction — he
thoroughly enjoyed hurling
the 2-pound, 2-ounce dis-
cus.
With every throwoutside
the Bee-Hive Gymat Naval
Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme, he gained dis-
tance and accuracy, and he
let out a big, satisfied shout
when, after about two doz-
en tries, he hit the large tire
that served as a discus tar-
get.
Hancock, a retired mas-
ter-at-arms seaman, was
one of eight athletes from
the Navy’s Safe Harbor
programtraining July 12-16
at NBVC. This was the first
training camp for most of
them, including Hancock.
Navy Safe Harbor pro-
vides care for seriously
wounded, ill or injured
Navy and Coast Guard per-
sonnel. Adaptive athletics
is one of many services pro-
vided, and for the last two
years, NBVC has served as
the training center for Safe
Harbor athletes, putting on
three to four camps each
year.
The next training camp
will be held Sept. 14-17, in
conjunction with the Satur-
day, Sept. 15, Wounded
Warrior Half Marathon at
NBVC Point Mugu.
Hancock joined the Navy
in 2007. Two years later, his
lower body was paralyzed
when a cable snapped as he
was rappelling during a
training exercise in Bahrain.
He fell five stories and sus-
tained life-threatening inju-
ries. In 2010, he was medi-
cally retired.
In the ensuing two years,
Hancock has become a cer-
tified dive master and helps
wounded and injured vet-
erans in their recovery
through diving.
He also enjoys four-
wheeling, hand-cycling and
hunting, but his favorite
sport is rock-climbing,
which he does with har-
nesses.
“It’s the adrenaline you
get from climbing moun-
tains,” he explained. “And
only climbing mountains
gives you that adrenaline.”
Hancock was able to try
shotput and discus thanks
to a chair especially de-
signed to concentrate pow-
er in the core and upper
body. Feet cannot touch the
ground.
The chair is secured with
stakes, so that when the
thrower flings his upper
body around and releases
the discus or shotput, the
chair won’t tilt.
It has enabled Navy ath-
letes like Linda Simpson
and Selemani Johnson to
medal in these events dur-
ing the Warrior Games, a
paralympic-style contest
among wounded warriors
from all the armed forces.
The chair’s use is gov-
erned by a complicated set
of rules that takes the de-
gree of disability into ac-
count.
To throw the shot, the
athlete pulls what looks and
feels like a cannonball back
to his ear, his forearm par-
allel to the ground, his wrist
steady. Then he swings his
upper body around, shoots
out his armand releases the
ball.
With the discus, the ath-
lete holds the disc and
swings him arm several
times like a pendulum, then
send the disc flying.
His coach for this event,
four-time Olympian Ra-
mona Pagel of the Bee-Fit
Health and Wellness Cen-
ter, prefers the shotput.
“It’s brute strength,” she
said. “The discus takes a lot
of finesse.”
After just a few throws,
Hancock could feel the
muscles in his shoulders
and upper back at work.
But he stuck with it for the
next half-hour, outlasting
his service dog, Buddy.
The Beagle-Lab mix,
used to chasing things,
found the shot and discus
too heavy to retrieve. So
while Hancock got a work-
out, Buddy curled up in the
grass and went to sleep.

After having helped hundreds of Sailors
and their families get through some tough
times, Nadine Gamble is leaving the Navy-
Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS).
Gamble has served as the director of the
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) office
for nine years. Her husband, Neil, has taken
a job in Cleveland, so she’s moving to
Ohio.
At afarewell partyTuesday, July17, at the
Bard Mansion, Gamble received high
praise.
“Your dedication has been beyond re-
proach,” said Capt. Larry Vasquez, com-
manding officer of Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC).
Co-workers called her “the best boss I’ve
ever had,” and Seabees who have watched
Gamble come tothe rescue of families indire
needsaidshe createdaperfect blendof help-
ing hand and tough love.
“It’s a Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. and a
spouse comes in and says there’s no food in
the house for the weekend,”saidChief Steel-
worker Steve Nelsen of Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 3. “I don’t know how
many times that’s happened.”
Gamble makes sure the family gets anim-
mediate supply of food, but then she also
follows up, working to get the family back
on track and its financial house in order.
Among those at the farewell party was
Jacki Cates, whois nowinher thirdyear vol-
unteering. She first met Gamble when she
came to the NMCRS in debt, with 21 credit
cards.
“Thanks toNadine, I onlyhave one now,”
she said. “You showed me the error of my
ways.”
Inadditiontoprovidingquickassist loans
for basic living expenses, transportationand
vehicle repairs, medical anddental costs and
family emergencies, NMCRS also runs the
thrift shop at NBVCPort Hueneme and of-
fers monthly Budget for Baby workshops.
Dave Swanson will serve as interimdirec-
tor until a newdirector arrives.

All persons eligible to hunt waterfowl
alone aboard Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC), Point Mugu, are invited to
participate in the annual repair of hunting
blinds. Personnel eligible to hunt water-
fowl include active duty, reserve and re-
tired military personnel; current and re-
tired NBVC Department of Defense
civil service personnel; and NBVC con-
tractor personnel with an NBVC ID
badge. Blind repair will take place during
the month of September, with specific
dates still to be determined.
On or after Aug. 1, volunteers are asked
to email their name, phone number – pref-
erably two —and eligibility status to Vern
at [email protected] You may
not sign up someone else. You may not
sign up earlier than Aug. 1 unless you will
be TAD or out of town that date. All re-
quests are due no later than Friday, Aug.
24.
Volunteers will be notified of their as-
signments in early September. There are a
limited number of blinds in need of repair;
therefore, volunteers will be taken on a first
come, first served basis. Volunteers earn
six priority chits to be used during the
hunting season to increase their chances
of getting a desired blind assignment.

to stay in the area. This was his first job
fair.
“I have a lot of energy, and I’m moti-
vated,”he said. “At this point, I’mlooking
for anyone who likes what I have to of-
fer.”
ConstructionElectrician2ndClass James
Gomez of Naval Mobile ConstructionBat-
talion 4 has another 18 months before he
gets out of the Navy.
“I’mstarting to plan now,”he said. “If I
can stay in this area, fine, but I’m always
open to going somewhere else.”
He’s doing all the right things, according
to Cmdr. Pat Sanders, who runs the Ship-
mates to Workmates programout of Naval
Sea Systems Command in Washington,
D.C.
Sanders said planning and flexibility are
critical in this economic environment.
Of the Navy’s 108 rates, 31 are targeted
for downsizing, Sanders said. Many are in
aviation and construction.
That means Naval Base Ventura County,
which united a naval air station and a con-
structionbattalioncenter, is gettinghit hard,
losing up to 70 Sailors, Sanders said. In all,
the Navy is paring nearly 3,000 from the
military rolls.
“Navy leadership is trying its best to help
them have a soft landing,” Sanders said.
In the meantime, spouses and veterans
are also trying to get jobs, leading to the
partnership with Shipmates to Workmates
andthe creationof the “HiringOur Heroes”
job fairs, said Kathryn Poynton, deputy
director of events and strategic outreach
for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
More than 100 of the job fairs have been
held so far, she said.
Some companies hire on the spot. Poyn-
ton said that in Rogers, Ark., Wal-Mart
hired a Purple Heart recipient, and a com-
mercial truck driving school hired 40 work-
ers at another job fair.
That didn’t happen at NBVC. Many of
the employers said job-seekers need to ap-
ply online; others reported a longer, more
drawn-out process for an actual hiring to
take place.
At the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office
booth, background investigator Scott Van
Tassell chatted with Utilitiesman 1st Class
JosephRubinoof the 31st Seabee Readiness
Group about his qualifications.
Rubino wasn’t ready, though — he has
another year left in the Navy before he gets
out.
Van Tassell explained that a military
background is especially helpful in law en-
forcement.
“They can help recruits who don’t have
any military experience,”he said. “Youcan’t
put a price on that.”
DidVanTassell see anyone he wouldhave
hired that day?
“Sure did,”he said, watching Rubino get
information at another booth. “He just
walked away.”

Lt. j.g. Troy Avery, the chaplain for Na-
val Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 40, hadn’t shaved since he’d been
on Guam about 24 hours earlier.
After a big hug, his 5-year-old daughter
noticed.
“Dad,” she said, “your face is pokey.”
It didn’t stop her from giving him an-
other hug, and it didn’t slow down her
3-year-old sister, Anna. They hadn’t seen
their dad for eight months, and they had
a lot of hugs to catch up on.
“It’s wonderful to be home,” he told
them and his wife, Hajnal. “It’s absolute-
ly fantastic. I have a bunch of beautiful
ladies to come home to.”
Avery was one of about 150 Seabees
from NMCB 40 who came home with the
main party on Monday, July 16. Another
200 arrived with the advance party on the
Fourth of July, and another wave would
arrive later in the month.
The July 16 homecoming took place at
noon under sunny skies and bright sun-
shine, something that wasn’t lost on the
Seabees.
“The weather’s great!” said Construc-
tion Electrician 1st Class Bryce Stenholm
as he hugged his wife, Yolanda, and sons
James, 10, and Gregory, 14.
Equipment Operator Construction Re-
cruit Dillon Francis was beyond words.
He had just met the new love of his life:
7-week-old Ayla, his daughter.

“I can’t even describe it,” he said, tears running down
his cheeks as he held Ayla and hugged his wife, Morgan.
“It’s been a long deployment, and it’s great to be home,
here with my family to support me.”
Latrece Goodwin was also ecstatic.
“This is the best moment ever!” she shouted as she
searched the faces of the disembarking Seabees for her
brother, Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Michkael Russell.
She and 14 others
were waiting for
him, including his
grandmother, moth-
er, wife and kids.
They didn’t have
long to wait.
“This feels unreal,” Russell said after hugging every-
one.
Reunited families piled into cars, looking to go home
or have lunch. Single Sailors stepped into waiting bus-
es.
But Equipment Operator 1st Class Matthew Krea-
malmyer wasn’t going anywhere. His wife, Jessica, had
come to pick him up with their three children, ages 5, 2
and 5 months, but the van she’d driven there wouldn’t
start.
“The whole time he was gone it was working just fine,”
she said, her voice far too calm given the situation. “Now
it won’t even turn over.”
Kreamalmyer was just as composed.
“It’s just another day,” he said. “Stuff happens.”
But a rescue team wasn’t far behind. Builder 1st Class
Johan Sanchez and Construction Mechanic 1st Class
James Eaton quickly figured out a way to get Mom and
the kids home in one car and tools and a new battery
over to the van. After eight months together, they weren’t
about to leave their fellow Seabee stranded.
“He’s our Sea Daddy,” Sanchez said.

The sun wasn’t as bright on the Fourth of July as it was when
the main body arrived at Point Mugu nearly two weeks later, but
home was still a welcome sight for NMCB 40’s advance party.

He’s leaving his current position as
deputy air operations officer at Naval Base
Ventura County and will report Aug. 2 to
Naval Air Station Oceana, in Virginia.
After a month training in the F-18, it’s on
to Pensacola, Fla.
He’ll report to the team Sept. 10. As a
“newbie,”he’ll travel with the Blue Angels
for the rest of the show season, which in-
cludes four West Coast air shows later this
year — the Fleet Week performances in
San Francisco are Oct. 6 and 7. Then he’ll
begin intense training with the team in El
Centro at the start of 2013.
There are 16 officers assigned to the
Blue Angels. Cheng is Blue Angel No. 8,
the events coordinator. He’ll set up all the
air shows in 2013, including the one at
Naval Base Ventura County Sept. 28 and
29. During travel, he’ll fly in the cockpit
behind No. 7, the narrator, and he’ll fly
once or twice a week during practice, but
he won’t fly in any of the air shows. His
job is on the ground, backing up the nar-
rator and giving him cues as to what’s
happening in the air as the narrator fo-
cuses on the crowd.
Being in the Blue Angels has earned
Cheng celebrity status, but he doesn’t see
it that way.
“I’m honored and humbled that I get
to do this,” he said.
Then he grins.
“I’m also really excited. Every day I get
up and I can’t believe this is happening.”
The news hasn’t sunk in yet for Cheng’s
parents, immigrants fromHong Kong who
have never attended an air show.
“My mom is like, ‘So you’re not going
on deployment, so that’s good, right?’
Slowly, they’re beginning to understand
the concept.”
The biggest challenge now is the move
to Pensacola. His wife, Jen, is expecting
their second child in December; daughter
Alyssa is almost 2.
“Jen is really excited and knows this is
great for our family,” Cheng said. “It’s
taken on a life of its own. We’re getting
more congratulations on this than we did
on the pregnancies.”
Although Cheng had wanted to fly since
that day on the San Francisco elementary
school rooftop, it took awhile for that
dream to come true. He graduated from
a San Francisco prep school, got his bach-
elor’s degree in economics from the Uni-
versity of California, Irvine, in 1996, then
went to work in Long Beach as the as-
sistant manager of a rental car compa-
ny.
By 2000, he was back in San Francisco,
working at his parents’ jewelry business
and looking for a new future. He still
wanted to fly, so he met with a Navy re-
cruiter but didn’t hear back. He thought
about enrolling in graduate school at the
University of San Francisco and becom-
ing a teacher. He applied to the FBI.
And then the Navy called back.
His decision to join the military was not
a popular one with his parents or his two
sisters.
“My father had come over from Hong
Kong and became a doctor,” he said.
“Doctor, lawyer — that’s what was ex-
pected. I broke the mold.”
He hesitates.
“I broke it really bad.”
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving
2000, he signed the papers and gave his
oath. Then he reported to Officer Candi-
date School (OCS) in Pensacola.
“That taught me a lot about the mili-
tary,” he said. “I learned about mental
discipline, teamwork, attention to de-
tail.”
His biggest eye-opener came when the
drill sergeant ordered each candidate to
rip up his bed and make it —military style
— in 5 minutes. No one came close the
first time, or the second or the third.
“He told us we’d never do it unless we
worked together,” he recalled. “So four
people each held one corner of a sheet
and we tied it down and we got all of them
done in time.
“I found that out about OCS: What they
did to you —the mental games they played
— there was a method to the madness.”
After OCS, Cheng stayed in Pensacola
for flight school, learning about weather,
aerodynamics and navigation before start-
ing to fly a propeller plane, then a jet.
In a touch of irony, the FBI called
shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, to accept his
application.
Cheng was assigned to strike aircraft,
flying S-3s. He was stationed in Naval Air
Facility Atsugi, Japan, and flew off the

USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63). He saw relatives in
Hong Kong and visited Iwo Jima, an experience
he called “awesome.”
In March of 2005, Cheng went to Whidbey Is-
land, Wash., to transition from the S-3 to the
Prowler. He deployed the next year in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom, followed by another
deployment in 2009 in support of Operation En-
during Freedom.
He has been at NBVC since March of 2010.
It’s been awhile since he’s flown a jet, but Cheng
isn’t concerned.
“It’s like riding a bike,” he said. “It all comes
back to you.”
As part of his job as deputy operations officer,
Cheng worked on the 2010 air show, which fea-
tured the Thunderbirds, the Air Force Flight Dem-
onstration Squadron. Now, he’ll be on the other
side.
As Blue Angel No. 8, he’ll visit every air show
site in advance of the 2013 performances, which
begin in March in El Centro. There’s roughly one
a week after that, with a break around Easter and
a break in August. The last show of the season
will be in November in Pensacola, then it’s back
to El Centro the following January.
“The time away from home will be significant,”
he said, adding that he and his wife, married since
2006, are used to the long absences.
“The first year we were married I was gone eight
months,” he said. “In the Navy, there’s no such
thing as perfect timing.”
The Blue Angels get 40 to 50 applications each
year. The deadline toapply was April 30, after which
Cheng began the “rush process,” when applicants
attend different air shows to meet the team—and
to be assessed. Cheng traveled to El Centro; Tus-
caloosa, Ala.; Kingsville, Texas; and Jones Beach,
N.Y. He found out June 4 that he was one of 16
finalists.
Inthe meantime, he finisheduphis graduate stud-
ies with Norwich University, earning an MBA in
finance.
Then came July 13.
“I know that I’m representing 500,000 Sailors
and Marines,” he said. “There’s pressure behind
this. I have to do a great job because I owe it to
them.”
Every member of the Blue Angels team, he says,
is a role model.
“I want to showkids and their families what the
military does. I want to show the precision, the
professionalism.”
So is he a celebrity?
“The closest I’ll ever get,” he says with a laugh.
Blue Angels choose NBVC’s Cheng

bee, director of first impressions
at Camarillo Bridal. “We’ll defi-
nitely do this again. The girls were
delighted, and they were all so
sweet. It was cool to meet them.
We’ve been happy to be a part of
this.”
Chavez and Dinse were helped
by Gina Blaxton, an employee
new to Camarillo Bridal but very
familiar with the military. Her
spouse is Cmdr. Allen Blaxton,
officer in charge at the Fleet
Readiness Center (FRC) South-
west Detachment Point Mugu at
Naval Base Ventura County,
“This has been amazing,”Gina
Blaxton said. “Many of the brides
said they would never be able to
afford a dress, that finances are
tight. This is making dreams come
true.”
One of Blaxton’s customers
that day was a man whose bride
was in London.
“He knewher size, the color she
wanted, the style she preferred,”
Blaxton said. “He picked one out
for her.”
For Chavez and Dinse, much of
the fun was in trying on the dress-
es. The one Dinse chose had a
price tag of $2,472.65. She’s plan-
ning a January wedding. Her fi-
ancé is a police officer in Texas.
Chavez would like to be married
in Sacramento, home for both her
and Operations Specialist 2nd
Class Julian Patterson of VX-30.
They met at the command and
have been together for over a year.

D5 SUNDAY, NOV. 22, 2009 THE STAR
FARMERS MARKET
Anne Kallas / Special to The Star The Moorpark College farmers market had few booths and fewer customers on a recent Saturday, despite closure of the High Street market.
Moorpark vendor
venues are dormant Two markets just miles apart in Moorpark seemed overly ambitious for a rela- tively small community. Kerry Clasby appar- ently feels the same way, because as of the second week in November, the High Street farmers mar- ket is closed. “I’m hoping to find a better location, closer to the 118 to draw better crowds, where I can re- open in March,” she said. Unfortunately for Moor- park, the farmers market at Moorpark College is
also struggling. On a re- cent Saturday, there were only eight booths offering goods for sale. Callie Vanden-Bossche, reading a book while she waited for customers at the Green Farms booth out of Lompoc, said busi- ness “is not very good.” Karen Schott of the Ventura County Certified Farmers’ Market Associa- tion recently announced the Moorpark market was granted an extension to its temporary use permit, keeping it open through the holiday season, which it is hoped will attract shoppers from Thousand
Oaks, where the farmers market is closed for the holidays.

WINE 101
I
t’s not hard to pair some meals with wine. A cabernet sauvignon goes great with a big, juicy steak. A Chianti works with almost any tomato-based Italian dish. Shellfish and chardonnay are made for each other. But what wine do you select for your upcoming Thanks- giving dinner? What wine do you dare try to pair with your Thanksgiving turkey and/ or ham? My answer is a Beaujolais Nouveau from France. Beaujolais Nouveau is a red wine made from the gamay grape in the French region of Burgundy. This is th ly br io in
