About 150 people from a doz-
en local, state and federal agen-
cies took part in an anti-terrorism
exercise Wednesday, Nov. 6, at
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Point Mugu.
The complex drill — involving
a panga boat, aerial surveillance,
curious bystanders and a shoot-
out at the training center for-
merly known as Combat Town
— allowed the agencies to not
only work together, but to achieve
their own individual training
goals.
“Each agency comes in with its
own needs and objectives that
need to be met,” explained Rob
Huether, the installation training
officer at NBVC. “We were able

(NBVC) Point Mugu, SSgt. Sonny Dasilva of the 146th Airlift Wing Security Forces Squadron fires blanks from
an M249 light machine gun during an exercise Wednesday, Nov. 6. The drill, which extended from Family
Beach to the Home Station Training Lanes, formerly known as Combat Town, involved 150 people from a
dozen local, state and federal agencies.

wrecked cars as evidence of what
can happen when destructive be-

“I’ve seen too many good Sail-

wards of Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) as she stood
next to a totaled car on display
in the Navy Exchange parking lot
at NBVC Port Hueneme. “I got
tired of seeing it. We all need to
work together and build camara-
derie to stop it from happen-

organizers of the Coalition of
Sailors Against Destructive Deci-

They’re also planning 2014

For their current campaign,
they arranged to have a local tow

Question: Is there a specifc reason Seabees
cannot improve our roads on Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Port Hueneme? There are numer-
ous asphalt classes throughout the year. With all
the great work they do while deployed, it would a
great pleasure to enjoy some of their hard work on
our own base. I’m aware they have projects else-
where on NBVC, but improving our roads would
have the greatest impact on the most amount of
patrons. Please enlighten us on the big picture we
don’t always see.
Answer: As the West Coast home of the Seabees,
we are constantly being asked, “Why don’t you just
use Seabees?” to repair, build, pave, paint, etc. It
seems like a no-brainer: Seabees build, we need
things built, have the Seabees build it.
Seabees are an operational force. Their primary
mission while in homeport is to train for future
deployments. Any project they do take on must
be directly related to improving their deployment
readiness. You brought up paving as an example.
Seabees have completed paving projects at NBVC
before through the “Call for Work” process,
practicing their skills and providing a completed
project for our use, but their mission requirements
and other considerations stop them from being a
go-to answer for every project. They simply have
other things they need to do.
Another consideration is funding. Seabees
bring the labor and the know-how, but not the
asphalt, tar or other required items to complete
projects. We have to fund that, and in today’s
fscal environment, projects that aren’t deemed
critical to life, safety or health are diffcult to get
funded. There’s just not enough money in the pot.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to ad-
dress this frequently asked question.

Post office boxes at Naval Base Ventura
County(NBVC) Port Hueneme will be inac-
cessible after Friday, Nov. 15, now that the
facility is permanently closed.
As of early November, about half of the
100 post office box patrons at NBVC had
transferredtothe Port Hueneme Post Office
at 560 E. Pleasant Valley Road, according
toStacyGensler, officer incharge of the Port
Hueneme facility.
Mail addressed to the untransferred box-
es will be kept at the Port Hueneme Post
Office incase someone is ondeployment and
hasn’t received notification, Gensler said.
Problems started over the summer when
the U.S. Postal Service andthe personwho’d
had a longtime contract to operate the base
post office couldn’t reach a new agree-
ment.
Retail services closed on a temporary ba-
sis Aug. 6, but that became permanent in
late October.
TimTilghman, a Navy Reservist, saidthe
change won’t be much of an inconvenience
since he lives near the Port Hueneme Post
Office.
“I’ll just havetostandinalonger linenow,”
he said.
The post office at NBVC Point Mugu
closed more than a year ago.
Questions about post officeboxes andmail
pickup and deliveries can be directed to
Gensler at 805-986-4661.

Think about this scenario, which played
out more than once at Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) this year:
First thing in your workday morning,
you’re walking across the parking lot with
coffee in hand, and a fellow Sailor, co-
worker, friend, acquaintance approaches
you.
“Did you hear about Mary? Her hus-
band committed suicide.”
What you say, how you feel, what you
say to Mary when she returns to work
— and don’t say — are all part of the
complex, difficult world called suicide
survival, and it was the topic of an all-
hands presentation Wednesday, Oct. 30,
at the Seabee Chapel at NBVC Port Hue-
neme.
“I think sometimes we get buried under
slides, and people don’t see the personal
effects of suicide,” explained Lt. Lesa
Welliver, the staff chaplain at the base who
organized the event. “I think having some-

The Naval Construction
Training Center (NCTC) at
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme,
brought six giant vehicles to
Parkview Elementary School
just a few blocks away from
NBVC’s Bard Gate as part of
a Veterans Day presentation
Friday, Nov. 8.
The 742 students — kinder-
gartners through sixth graders
— got to climb into a five-ton
dump truck, a grader and oth-
er vehicles under the watchful
eye of Seabees.
“When I was a kid I would
have loved this,” said Utilities-
man 1st Class Juan Gonzalez
as he hoisteda first-grader onto
a vehicle. “Actually, I still like
it.”
Principal Cara Comstock
said she appreciated her stu-
dents having this opportunity.
“I think it’s so wonderful to
have such an important part
of our community brought to
our students,” she said. “A lot
of themdon’t have any idea of
what’s just a few blocks away.
They don’t know about our
heroes who take care of
them.”
Amanda Glover, a special
education teacher at Parkview,
has arranged for several proj-
ects with the Seabees. Her hus-
band, Lt. Grant Glover, worked
with the NCTCfor this presen-
tation. Both the commanding
officer, Cmdr. Dan Cook, and
the executive officer, Lt. Cmdr.
Jesse Santiago, attended.
Before climbing on the
equipment, each student at-
tended a slide showthat talked
about the history of the Sea-
bees and the humanitarian
work they do across the
globe.
“We do a lot more than fight
wars,”Glover told the students.
“Not everyone is an engineer.
We teach people the skills they
need to better their lives and
the lives of their families.”

Privacy Is Our Priority
The Navy’s newest variant of the Fire
Scout unmanned helicopter completed its
first day of flying Oct. 31 at Naval Base
Ventura County, Point Mugu.
At 12:05 p.m., the MQ-8C Fire Scout
took off and flew for seven minutes in
restricted airspace to validate the autono-
mous control systems. The second flight
that took off at 2:39 p.m. was also flown
in a pattern around the airfield, reaching
an altitude of 500 feet.
The MQ-8C air vehicle upgrade will
provide longer endurance, range and
greater payload capability than the MQ-
8B, which is currently operating aboard
USS Simpson (FFG 56).
The MQ-8C is a larger air vehicle, has
a range of 150 nautical miles and a pay-
load capacity of more than 700 pounds.
“It is a big accomplishment for the in-
tegrated government and industry team
to fly this air vehicle for the first time,”
said Capt. Patrick Smith, Fire Scout pro-
gram manager at Patuxent River, Md.
“MQ-8C will require fewer aircraft [than
the MQ-8B] to operate at maximum per-
formance and will meet the U.S. Africa
and Special Operation Commands urgent
needs requirement.”
The MQ-8Cs will conduct initial ship-
board testing on guided-missile destroyers
(DDG)-class ships, but the program is
looking into supporting littoral combat
ship (LCS) missions. Initial operating ca-
pability for the MQ-8C is planned for
2016, with a potential for early deploy-
ment in 2014.

An MQ-8C Fire Scout, the Navy’s newest
variant of the unmanned helicopter, takes
off Oct. 31 from Naval Base Ventura County,
Point Mugu. The unmanned aerial vehicle
completed its first flight event, reaching an
altitude of 500 feet.
Shoppers at the Naval Base Ventura
County commissary will soon have their
ID cards scanned at checkout so their eli-
gibility to use the facility can be con-
firmed.
The commissary at Fort Lee, Va., be-
came the first store to scan ID cards on
Oct. 22. The requirement is expected to be
in place at all commissaries by mid-Janu-
ary.
By scanning the IDat checkout, the De-
fense Commissary Agency (DeCA) will no
longer need to maintain any personal in-
formation on customers in its computer
systems, such as the system used for cus-
tomers who write checks.
“This is just another way DeCAis keep-
ing up with the 21st century,” said Velma
Siler, director of the Port Hueneme com-
missary.
Joseph H. Jeu, DeCAdirector and CEO,
said the new system will improve efficien-
cy both at the store and across the entire
operation.
“In addition to verifying customers as
authorized commissary patrons, we’ll gain
information that will give us a better un-
derstanding of our patrons, allowing the
agency to provide the commissary benefit
more effectively and efficiently,” Jeu said.
Cross-referenced with other Department
of Defense data, the scan data will give
DeCA useful information about patron
usage by military service, along with cus-
tomer demographics. The informationdoes
not identify specific personal data of an
individual. This will eventually help the
agency identify shopping needs and prefer-
ences and will allowmore accurate report-
ing to the military services on commissary
usage.
The demographic information DeCA
will use is strictly limited to card ID num-
ber, rank, military status, branch of service,
age, household size and ZIP codes of
residence and duty station. DeCAwill not
be using any personal information such as
names, addresses or phone numbers.
“The methods, processes and informa-
tion we’ll use will not compromise our
customers’ privacy — they can be sure of
that,”Jeu said. “We’re putting technology
to work to better understand our custom-
ers and ensure the commissary benefit
continues to remain relevant to them now
and in the future.”

Walk into any toy store and you’ll find
plenty of learning opportunities for chil-
dren of all ages.
Toys are fun and encourage play, but
many of them also encourage some form
of learning. From motor skills to math
comprehension, science exploration to
social skills, toys and games are an excel-
lent way for children to discover new
knowledge.
Here are some ideas for educational toys
and games this holiday season.
Preschoolers
• Puzzles provide an excellent opportu-
nity to build critical thinking and reason-
ing skills. An extra bonus: Completing a
puzzle is a powerful confidence boost.
• Matching games that allow children
to sort colors, shapes, numbers and pic-
tures help develop math and critical think-
ing skills. Look for card games, “Go Fish”
or memory games.
• As children begin to recognize colors,
letters, textures and sounds, consider mag-
netic letters and numbers, flash cards and
a small electronic game that encourages
this type of learning.
• Creativity and imagination, which will
lead to better reading comprehension and
writing skills, can be encouraged with dolls
and play figures, musical instruments and
crayons or paint sets.
• Building blocks, Tinker Toys and Lin-
coln Logs help refine motor skills. So do
activity mats, cars and trucks and large
wooden-bead kits.
Elementary students
• Chemistry kits, science kits, telescopes
and microscopes foster an interest in sci-
ence and help build critical thinking
skills.
• To foster an understanding and use of
strategy and probability skills, try board
games like Connect Four, Monopoly,
Scrabble and Uno. These games also en-
courage sportsmanship.
• Project-based toys such as model air-
planes, ships and jewelry kits help improve
fine motor skills and encourage a student
to read and follow directions.
• An interest in video games is bound
to creep up during the elementary school
stage. Choose games wisely. Many are
available that encourage math and reading.
Most also support fine motor skills and
hand-eye coordination.
High school students
• Books — yes, books! — especially a
series that students can relate to, will help
high schoolers develop their writing and
vocabulary skills.
• Sewing and knitting are not only be-
coming a lost art, but also a lost oppor-
tunity to build math skills. Buy a kit or
sign the student up for a local class.
• Wood shop classes and auto hobby
classes are being cut in schools. These
skills do not need to be sacrificed. A few
tools or a kit can encourage a valuable
interest in carpentry and mechanics.
• Large puzzles are a great way to en-
courage critical thinking skills and family
time — both of which are important in
the teen years.
• Video games, cell phones, laptops and
tablets will no doubt be of interest to the
high school student. Encourage safe use,
appropriate games and apps and supervi-
sion.
Does it seem that almost any toy or
game can be classified as a learning tool?
Well, most can be. It is up to the parent
to decide what academic or life skill should
be encouraged and supported. Purchase
accordingly.

Worship schedule
I will never forget the night of Jan. 4,
2006. I was at home in Austin, Texas,
where I witnessed Vince Young run in the
game-winning touchdown in the BCS na-
tional championship game.
Shortly afterwards, I made my way
downtown to see the UT tower lit orange
with a huge “#1” outlined therein.
Few moments in sports compare to the
thrill of watching your team win the Big
Game at home. Just ask any Red Sox fan
at Fenway last month. And even though
Texas won that year in Pasadena, celebrat-
ing in the city of burnt orange with fans
who’d endured many rough years made
the night most special.
The sentimental value of a home crowd
in sports makes me consider on a grander
scale the teamwe should all celebrate: our
family. Home and family should be our
great advantage in life. Even Vegas knows
the odds of success that tilt in favor of a
team playing at home. How often do we
capitalize on our own home field advan-
tage?
The French architect Le Corbusier once
said, “The home should be the treasure
chest of living.”Interestingly enough, life
seems to compete with our focus at home
and, for that matter, our family. The com-
petition starts early during our years of
hardworking, single, independent life. We
need these years of putting goals first to
power through college or early career mile-
stones. However, at some point, the pri-
orities must reverse: Family and friends
who endured the back seat of our lives
must now become center stage.
Home field advantage begins with in-
vesting in time at home. Ironically a suc-
cessful life includes a lack of time to enjoy
the things we’ve earned with the people
we love. In accomplishing our ambitions,
we gather more social obligations, hobbies
and commitments that detract from our
time at home. Suddenly, fun ideas like
decorating the house or hanging pictures
become part of a honey-do list, needing
quick and often highly caffeinated comple-
tion vice casual enjoyment. Instead of
resting, we use our home as merely a re-
charging base — physically present, but
still mentally abroad. We become strang-
ers in our own home.
For these reasons and many more, I
thank God for the holidays and their effect
on the optempo of our lives. In the same
way we slow down to savor the weekend,
we should take more time to relax and
enjoy year’s end.
I consider November and December as
home and family awareness months. Some
even kick off this season with 30 days of
thankfulness — starting Nov. 1 — as a
way to slow down and take it all in.
My advice is simple: Love your home
and love being at home this holiday sea-
son. Let the Christmas decorations come
out early this year. Take your time and get
the whole family involved — even neigh-
bors, for that matter. Should you travel,
do your best to bring peace to whatever
family or friend’s house you visit. Be that
person who goes out of their way to make
the holidays special. Invite people who
may not have others to celebrate with.
As a true fan of your best team, commit
yourself to home, friends and family, and
you will have the home field advantage
going into 2014.
This season, reap the benefits of home field advantage

METINARO, Timor-
Leste – In the rural Timor-
Leste neighborhood of
Duyung, a small village
roughly an hour outside the
country’s capital of Dili in
the Metinaro province, the
roads are dirt and kids run
barefoot among wild hogs
and chickens. Babies are
bathed outside in small rub-
ber tubs, doors and win-
dows are left open in the
evenings so families can en-
joy a cooler, yet still warm,
breeze and improvements
to the local infrastructure
are few and far between.
For Joaquin De A.
Soares, a Duyung resident
and father of 10 children,
the community has re-
mained virtually the same
during the past 30 years. He
lives just 50 yards from the
Metinaro Primary School.
So when he woke up Oct. 1
to see more than 20 Austra-
lian, American and Ti-
morese engineers building
a newschool, outside bath-
room facility, kitchenette
and playground, he was
thankful.
“We are very happy to
have the new school and
play yard for our children,”
Soares said through a trans-
lator. “The work the Aus-
tralians, Americans and
Timorese engineers have
done is going to help us
provide an education to our
children. For us, there is
nothing more important.”
Each day, people like
Soares would visit the job
site to thank the group of
joint engineers who were
brought to the small com-
munity in support of Sap-
per 13, a multilateral exer-
cise designed to increase
interoperability between
U.S. Navy Seabees, U.S.
Marine Corps combat en-
gineers, Australian Army
Engineers and engineers
from the Timor-Leste De-
fense Force (F-FDTL). This
was the first time this type
of exercise had ever been
executed in Timor-Leste.
“Metinaro was chosen
for this project for a variety
of reasons,”said Australian
Army Engineer Warrant
Officer Bill Fry. “The
Timor-Leste Defense Force
recently added married
housing to the local base
here. That brought an ad-
ditional 100 family mem-
bers to the community, and
the school here had no way
to support them. So, we
decided that would be a
good use of our skills and
a fantastic opportunity to
share construction tech-
niques between our three
services. If a natural disas-
ter or real-world event were
to happen that would pull
our services together, hav-
ing this type of exposure
would help us better re-
spond.”
MetinaroPrimary School
Director Duarte Amara is
currently responsible for
more than 300 students. His
teachers provide elemen-
tary level education to all
children in the area, includ-
ing Soares’ 10. Without the
additional schoolhouse and
related support facilities,
the community as a whole
would have struggled to
provide what’s easily the
most coveted resource in
the country.
“The students are very
happy with their newbuild-
ing and are excited,” said
Amara. “Previously, we
were only able to teach
three classes. Now, we can
teach nine. The children are
very proud to have this op-
portunity and one of the
best schools in Metinaro …
perhaps all of Timor. On
behalf of our country, I say
thank you. You’ve helped
us provide our children with
an education.”
More than 20 joint ser-
vice members fromthe three
countries participated in the
28-day exercise.
“We are trying to demon-
strate U.S. commitment and
promote regional stability
and security,” said Navy
Capt. Rod Moore, commo-
dore of the Naval Construc-
tion Force’s (NCF) 30th
Naval Construction Regi-
ment. “In order to do that,
we have to build, foster and
sustain relationships. Our
Seabees get the chance to
come out and work with the
community — not just to
build infrastructure, but
relationships at the local
level which will sustain the
security we are trying to
keep.”

VAW-112 Public Affairs
The “Golden Hawks” of Carrier Air-
borne Early Warning Squadron(VAW) 112
hosted Rear Adm. Michael Smith, com-
mander of Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 3,
Thursday, Oct. 24, for an opposed Air De-
fense Exercise (ADEX) conducted from
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point
Mugu.
The exercise, known as Sharpen Shogun,
combined guided-missile cruiser USS Mo-
bile Bay (CG-53) and various elements of
Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9; participants
tested their ability to integrate systems and
personnel as a unified front defending
against air threats. The event, which used
both actual and computer-based elements,
was the first of its kind to be hosted by an
installation that doesn’t serve as homeport
to one of the ships involved.
NBVC, the venue for launching and re-
covering CVW-9 air assets, as well as plan-
ning and debriefing the exercise, is centered
between Naval Air Station Lemoore, home
to CVW-9’s strike fighter squadrons, and
Naval Base San Diego, homeport to Mo-
bile Bay and CVW-9’s helicopter squad-
rons, and the training airspace used west
of the Channel Islands in the eastern Pa-
cific Ocean.
“This team effort showcases a unique
way that we can get synergy without being
based on the carrier,”said Smith. “By com-
bining the cruiser together with all the ele-
ments of the air wing, and taking advan-
tage of the location here at Point Mugu,
we were able to get some really fantastic
training while still operating in the fiscally
constrained environment we find ourselves
in.”
The CVW-9 commander, Capt. Stuart
Baker, was proud of the way his squadrons
worked together in both planning and ex-
ecution.
“It is easy to sustain relationships and
build a comprehensive strike plan when
everyone is aboardthe aircraft carrier,”said
Baker. “Ledby VAW-112, the CVW-9 team
came together for a rare collaboration op-
portunity during the maintenance phase
to maintain those critical bonds, and plan
and execute a challenging event.”
According to Smith, the coordination
that was demonstrated by the strike group
components is crucial to maintaining a
collaborative relationship among CSG-3
surface and aviation units.
“The biggest challenge we have is that
we are not deploying for an extended pe-
riod of time,” said Smith. “We want to
build off the experience of those who have
deployed recently and maintain that ex-
pertise.
“This exercise was one of those examples.
You have experienced operators debriefing
the event to junior folks, many of whom
have not been forward deployed yet.”
Once Sharpen Shogun concluded, an
exercise debrief featured a composition of
video recordings from the vantage points
of multiple CSG-3 assets. A quad-screen
displayed time-synchronized video from
both the E-2C Hawkeye radar screen and
the air search radar display aboard Mobile
Bay. The screen also displayed the situa-
tional awareness display and digital display
indicator, which provide information on
potential threats and overall flight safety
data, froman F/A-18ESuper Hornet from
the “Top Hatters”of Strike Fighter Squad-
ron (VFA) 14, who participated in the
ADEX as well.
“I thought that was brilliant,” Smith
said. “Synchronizing all those inputs, and
walking through what each person saw in
different areas, allowed you to critique the
combined efforts to really maximize what
you got out of the training.”
“I wanted to bring the strike group to-
gether to highlight the capabilities and
limitations that each of us brings to the
fight,” said Lt. Justin Porter of VAW-112,
who helped design the debrief. “I think we
provided both a more complete and thor-
ough debrief, as well as learning opportu-
nities for crewmembers on every front of
the exercise.”
Composing multiple vantage points of
air and sea assets is a process that CSG-3
hopes will pave the way for new and more
effective methods for enhancing their op-
erational training.
“I think it is exceptional, and there is a
lot more we can do to take this to the next
step,” said Smith.

NMCRS director
As theholidayseasonapproaches, let’s take
a moment to do some number-crunching.
After all, it’s what we do best at the Navy-
Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS)!
Statistics tell us that 14 millionAmericans
are still paying on debt incurred last holiday
seasontothe tune of $7 billion. The average
family spends $318 in interest on the gifts
they buy, so that “deal”is only a deal if you
can afford to pay cash for it. The store dis-
counts quickly evaporate once the bills start
to linger into the next year.
Gift cardstatistics are evenworse. Aquar-
ter of respondents say they have an unused
gift card they received last holiday season,
while 55 percent have two or more unre-
deemed cards.
Whenyoudouse the gift cards youreceive,
make sure you stay within the budget it pro-
vides —two-thirds of shoppers spend more
thanwhat’s onthe card. Remember, too, that
under California law, merchants must pay
cash for any amount remaining on the card
under $10 when the card is used for a pur-
chase.
If you absolutely must give a gift card in-
steadof cash, consider Visa, Master Cardor
American Express pre-paid cards instead.
Some retailers andbanks will loadthemwith
no fees this time of year.
Know the recipient’s spending habits. If
they are an online shopper, or go out to eat
often or have a pesky shoe habit, make sure
the card fits their need.
When it comes to kids, we’ve all seen little
ones get more joy out of the box than the
gift. Keep that in mind when you are perus-
ing the aisles of the toy store this year. The
season is also a great opportunity to give
older children the chance to shop in a spe-
cific price range. Theycanevenshopfor each
other. You’d be surprised how resourceful
they can be, knowing that there’s a cap on
the amount they can spend.
When you’re creating your list, pencil in a
dollar amount, too. Don’t forget toaddthat
up and stay on target.
WhenCyber Mondayhits, remember you
can sort online shopping by dollar amount.
Doingyour researchonline canreduce shop-
pingstress andimpulse purchases, andyou’ll
save all the money spent on gas and meals
out while on a retail spree.
Survey after survey has revealed that it
actually is the thought that counts. Aheart-
felt gesture is more valuable to the recipient
than an expensive item. Don’t forget the
value of experiences. Sharing a memory will
have a lasting impression, while a gift may
not. Have you ever asked someone, even a
spouse, “What did I get you last year?” and
see their face go white with fear? But if you
say, “Do you remember the year we shared
this moment?”the recollectionis muchmore
vivid.

Navy personnel stationed at the Center for Seabees and Facilities Engineering
(CSFE) and the Naval Facilities Institute (NFI) at Naval Base Ventura County conduct
a flag-folding ceremony for third- and fourth-graders at Rio Del Norte Elementary
School in Oxnard as part of a Veterans Day celebration.
A BANNER DAY
The seasonal flu vaccine is being offered
to TRICAREbeneficiaries Tuesday, Nov.
19, at the Navy Exchange at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme
and at the NBVC Point Mugu Navy Ex-
change Thursdays, Nov. 14 and Nov. 21.
Hours are from 9 to 11 a.m. at both
locations.
The Preventive Medicine Department
of Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC)
Port Hueneme is also offering the vaccine
at the clinic’s immunization office from 8
a.m. to noon and from1 to 3:30 p.m. Mon-
day through Friday.
A military ID card will be required to
receive the flu vaccine.
It takes about two weeks after vaccina-
tion for your body to develop an immune
response. Get vaccinated now so you’ll be
protected all season long!
Flu clinic at NEX ends Nov. 21
With the fall and winter holidays com-
ing up, many at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC) will be away from the work-
place for three or more days at a stretch.
Did you know that there are an esti-
mated 10,000-plus computers at NBVC
that, if left on 24/7, cost the Navy more
than $750,000 in electricity annually? If
everyone shuts down their computer at
the end of each workday, over weekends
and during holidays, the electricity cost
could be cut by 66 percent, saving the
Navy and the taxpayer nearly $500,000
per year!
The NBVC Energy Team asks that you
take the following actions before leaving
for a holiday weekend:
• Turn off NMCI computers, monitors,
speakers, printers, etc. within your work-
station, and turn off the power strip too.
• Turn off all personal devices (fans,
radios, etc.).
• Coordinate a shutdown of all work-
group printers, photocopiers and other
common area office equipment prior to
vacating the workplace.
• Shut down all shop equipment.
• Turn off all kitchen and break room
equipment.
• Turn off all lights.
• Shut down all heating, cooling and
ventilation systems.
For more information, contact Tom
Santoianni, NBVC energy manager, at
982-4075 or via email at [email protected]
navy.mil.
Long weekend? Turn off your computer
16
to devise a scenario so everyone could do
that.”
That’s especially important in these fis-
cal times, he added; individual agencies
can’t afford to put on their own training
exercise, and having several of them work
together on a single drill is cost-efficient
and fosters interagency cooperation and
communication.
The drill began with a safety briefing at
7:30 a.m., then spread out to the beach
area. Shortly after 8 a.m., a C-130J from
the 146th Airlift Wing of the California
Air National Guard reported a panga boat
on the sand at Family Beach. Several of-
ficers from NBVC Force Protection re-
sponded. One “suspect” was already dead
— the mangled mannequin lay sprawled
next to the panga boat — and three others
had supposedly run down the beach. They
were headed toward the Home Station
Training Lanes, a complex of buildings
formerly known as Combat Town and
sometimes called IED Village, because it’s
where military personnel are taught about
improvised explosive devices before they
deploy overseas.
With other officers providing cover,
Master at Arms 2nd Class Jeffrey Mc-
Donough approached the panga boat, gun
drawn. He began “choking” and fell into
the sand, calling out for help.
Passersby from the nearby RV Park be-
gan running over but they, too, collapsed
from the “fumes.”
Backup was requested from the Ven-
tura County Sheriff’s Office and a hazard-
ous materials team was called in. An in-
cident command post was established by
Naval Security Forces.
Radio communication was constant.
“Be advised, all subjects walking in the
area are now coughing.”
“We have multiple victims down due to
an unknown chemical.”
“Ensure that no personnel go down to
that area.”
At 8:45 a.m., everything changed.
“We have shots fired at the IED Village.
Officers are taking direct fire.”
There were reports of multiple explo-
sions, of automatic weapons fire, of
masked gunmen on rooftops armed with
“possible RPGs.”
A helicopter from the National Guard
counterdrug team flew overhead, provid-
ing a live surveillance video feed to the
incident command post and both the
NBVC and Ventura County emergency
operations centers.
Someone called in a boat traveling to-
ward Mugu Rock. (It was the first of three
such reports, only one of which was a
planned part of the exercise. “There are
no additional boats in play,” the radio
crackled. “If this becomes a real-world
situation, we will advise Coast Guard.”)
The Ventura County Tactical Response
Team (TRT) was called in.
“Be advised, the shooters have a 360-
degree view.”
“Officers are pinned down and do not
have a visual on the weapons.”
“Eye in the sky says it looks like an
AT4,” an anti-tank weapon.
Back at the panga boat, Master at Arms
2nd Class Chris Schuler called out to Mc-
Donough but got no reply.
At 9:30 a.m., the TRT team was ready
to enter the training complex.
“TRT is making entry. Keep your heads
down.”
Then came another twist. The suspects
— now being called “terrorists” in radio
chatter — had made a phone call and were
threatening to release mustard gas if any-
one approached.
Following a short standoff and attempt-
ed negotiations toward surrender, the sus-
pects “detonated” a second device, killing
them. In the explosion, according to the
scenario, several containers of a volatile
chemical product were shattered, releasing
the contents into the surrounding environ-
ment.
Two hours after McDonough was felled
by fumes, the hazardous materials team
of firefighters arrived, along with armed
Ventura County Sheriff’s deputy escorts,
each of whom wore a breathing appara-
tus.
“Do not move, help is on they way,” the
deputies called out as they approached the
panga boat, repeating it in Spanish.
“Survivors” told the firefighters the
fumes smelled like sulphur, horseradish
and garlic. The hazardous materials team
took air samples and determined the chem-
ical was mustard gas. Those who were still
“alive” — McDonough wasn’t one of them
— underwent a simulated decontamina-
tion.
And then it was off for debriefings and
critiques.
“This was good training,” McDonough
said as he brushed the sand off his uni-
form. “It’s good to have all these groups
get together. We can’t do that very of-
ten.”
He said he would have enjoyed a bigger
role in the exercise.
“It was pretty boring lying in the sand,”
he said. “I wish I could have played with
the others, but someone had to do it.”
Despite its complexity, there was still
something missing from the exercise, ac-
cording to one visitor.
Ron Nowak and his wife, Barbara,
stumbled onto the scene during their dai-
ly walk on the beach. The Las Vegas resi-
dents were in the middle of their nine-day
stay at the RV Park on Family Beach, and
Nowak, who spent 17 years with Air Force
security police, chatted with some of the
participants during a slow moment.
“I’ve seen a lot of these exercises,” he
said. “But in my day, they had nukes in
them.”

The exercise held Wednesday, Nov.
6, at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Point Mugu, was originally
planned as a training session for the
Army’s 9th Weapons of Mass De-
struction Civil Support Team (CST),
whose members were being critiqued
by U.S. Army North out of San An-
tonio.
Because the 9th CST, which re-
sponds to chemical, biological and
radiological threats in support of
civil authorities, needs to be able to
seamlessly coordinate with a variety
of agencies, the exercise was expand-
ed. It became a training session for
not only them, but also the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security, U.S.
Customs and Border Protection,
Ventura County Sheriff’s and Fire
departments, the California Air Na-
tional Guard and the counterdrug
team it operates jointly with the
Army National Guard, the FBI, Fed-
eral Fire, Naval Security Forces and
NBVC.

CE2 Nicole Jernigan-Smith of Naval Base
Ventura County uses the skills she learned
as a Seabee with Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion 4 to paint the exterior of an old
Oxnard farmhouse that’s used for women’s
transitional housing.
More than two dozen volunteers from
Naval Base Ventura County spent several
hours last month sprucing up the exterior
of a women’s transitional housing center
in Oxnard.
Gabriel’s House, located in the old Don-
lon family farming complex on Rose Av-
enue, got a fresh coat of paint and a
weeded garden thanks to the volunteers.
The facility is operated by the Kingdom
Center, a coalition of churches in Ven-
tura County.
“They don’t have the money for people
to come out and do a professional job,”
explained Religious Programming Special-
ist 2nd Class Brian Adamson, who helped
organize the community relations event.
“This way, they get the same quality with-
out paying big bucks, and we get to do
some good for people who need help. We
want to be a part of the community.”
Cindy Wilson, director of operations
for Gabriel’s House, praised the Sailors’
work ethic.
“They’re doing a great job,” she said.
“They are always a delight to have. They’re
polite and industrious, and we couldn’t
have gotten this done without them.”
Another group of Sailors had recently
painted the interior of one of the build-
ings; this project involved the exterior. The
building got a fresh coat of white paint
and blue trim.
Aviation Maintenance Administration-
man 1st Class Teddy Tatum of Carrier
Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW)
116 said that because he grew up in 4-H
Clubs, volunteering was nothing new to
him.
“It comes naturally in the Navy,” he
said. “We’re always trying to do good
things.”

Hundreds of federal employees at-
tended the two annual open season health
fairs put on at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC) so workers can get the latest
information on insurance benefits and
medical information.
New to this year’s events were the
American Postal Workers Union pre-
ferred-provider organization and Long-
Term Care Partners, which administers
the Federal Long-Term Care Insurance
Program.
Their booths were among the 30 set up
Wednesday, Nov. 6, in Bldg. 366 at NBVC
Point Mugu and Thursday, Nov. 7, in
Duke’s Place at NBVC Port Hueneme.
The Kaiser Mobile Clinic was also on
base those days, offering glucose, blood
pressure and cholesterol testing.
Information was available on medical
conditions from head to toe — from chi-
ropractic care for the neck to shoe inserts
for the feet.
In one corner, Jonathan Breslow of the
Acupuncture & Wellness Clinic in Ca-
marillo demonstrated acupressure. Paul
Lagana, security manager for the Naval
Satellite Operations Center, gave it a shot,
hoping it might relieve his back pain.
Breslow applied pressure to Lagana’s
ear, but after several minutes, Lagana left
disappointed.
“It seemed to work on everyone else,”
he said.
Federal employees have until Dec. 9 to
decide on their health benefits. Informa-
tion can be obtained at https://www.ci-
vilianbenefits.hroc.navy.mil.

6 health fair at Naval Base Ventura County,
Point Mugu.
As Thanksgiving nears, it’s time to re-
mind all Naval Base Ventura County
personnel that in accordance with regula-
tions and by recommendation of the
National Fire Protection Association, the
American Burn Institute and Underwrit-
ers Laboratories Inc., turkey fryers are
prohibited on Navy Region Southwest
government facilities, Navy housing ex-
cluded.
Experts recommend that consumers
who choose to fry turkeys at home follow
these safety guidelines:
• Keep the fryer in full view while the
burner is on.
• Place the fryer in an open area away
from all walls, fences and other struc-
tures.
• Never use a fryer in, on or under a
garage, breezeway or any structure that
can catch fire.
• Make sure there is at least 2 feet of
space between the propane tank and
fryer burner.
• Center the pot over the burner on the
cooker.
• Check the oil temperature frequent-
ly.
• If oil begins to smoke, immediately
turn the gas supply off.
• Raise and lower food slowly to reduce
splatter and avoid burns.
• Cover bare skin with well-insulated
potholders or oven mitts when removing
or adding food.
• Completely thaw and dry turkey be-
fore cooking. Partially frozen and/or wet
turkeys can produce excessive hot oil
splatter when added to oil.
• Never leave the fryer unattended.
• Never let children or pets near the
fryer when in use.
Use turkey fryers with caution

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Some of you may have started your
holiday shopping and are happily count-
ing down the days until the end of De-
cember. For others, the thought of the
holidays is overwhelming and a little
stressful — mentally and financially!
Preparing for your holiday spending
nowcan help you avoid seasonal debt that
stays around much longer than your plate
of turkey and stuffing.
Here are six ways you can prevent over-
spending:
• Set reasonable expectations. Last year,
the average American spent nearly $900
on gifts during the holiday season. Any
spending that strains your finances or
leaves you with post-holiday debt is bad
for your financial future. Take the time
now to talk with family and friends about
realistic holiday spending limits. Con-
sider less expensive gift options like home-
made gifts. If you have a large extended
family, maybe it’s time to start a new tra-
dition of picking one person out of a hat
to buy a gift for, rather than everybody
buying a gift for every other person in the
family.
• Plan, budget and save for next year.
Creating a holiday budget at the beginning
of the year and setting aside money every
paycheck or month can help you avoid
overspending, unwanted debt and finan-
cial stress during the holidays. You can
find helpful budgeting tools on mymoney.
gov.
• Keep the big picture in mind. It can be
easy to forget that we spend a lot of mon-
ey on other things besides gifts during the
holidays. Big holiday dinners, travel to see
family and friends, the tree and decora-
tions and even increased electricity costs
to run that massive holiday light display
can add up and drain your bank account.
Make sure you plan for the cost of all of
your extra holiday activities.
• Look for ways to save. Catch early
sales. Comparison shop. Order from sites
or stores that offer free shipping. Shop at
discount stores. Buy items that offer re-
bates. All this can help you save money
on holiday purchases.
• Watch out for costly surprises. Make
sure you fully understand the terms and
conditions if you’re using gift cards or
layaway plans. Expiration dates, inactiv-
ity rules and hidden fees on gift cards can
eat away at their value if you’re not care-
ful. Take the same cautious approach with
store credit cards that you’re offered at
checkout. They might save you a fewbucks
at the register today but stick you with
very high interest rates later.
• Avoid holiday debt traps. Don’t get
sucked in by holiday “super sales.” If you
rush to a store sale because you can get a
$3,000 TV for $2,000, you’ve still spent
$2,000 on a TV. Was that really something
you had planned to do? Also, don’t be
enticed by payday lenders who want to
“help” you get your hands on holiday
cash.
Keep in mind that holiday spending is
short-term spending. Once the unwrap-
ping frenzy is over, how long does the
excitement last? Saving your money for
long-termgoals like home ownership, col-
lege or a comfortable retirement may be
the very best gift you can give yourself
and your loved ones.

one share a personal story creates a space
for honesty and openness, and that’s what
we created today.”
About 75peopleattendedthepresentation
by Kristine Barry-OlsenandRickMogil of
the Didi HirschMental HealthServices and
Suicide Prevention Center in Los Angeles.
Ashowof hands revealedthat about three-
quarters of the people inthe roomhadbeen
affected by a suicide at some point in their
lives. Later, another showof hands revealed
that only two had reached out for help.
“That shows us we have some worktodo,”
Welliver said.
Barry-Olsen, a Camarillo resident whose
father killed himself 33 years ago when she
was a teenager, began discussing the topic
of suicide survival only three years ago.
“His suicide was withme every minute of
every day,”she said. “It has been a very dif-
ficult grieving process.”
Over three decades, she went from being
a high school dropout who used drugs and
cut herself —“a sloth”is what people called
her — to a wife and mother who tells her
story about once a month and is writing a
book about her journey.
Barry-Olsen and Mogil talked about the
stigmaof shame that oftenaccompanies the
suicide of a loved one. The survivor may be
feeling, “I should have done something to
prevent this,” while struggling with the
knowledge that friends andco-workers may
be thinkingthe same thing: “Whydidn’t that
family do something?”
Often, suicide is the end result of depres-
sion, which is just as much an illness as can-
cer; Barry-Olsen, in fact, called depression
“an invisible cancer.” And while a family
member or close friend may be helping the
personthroughthe illness, those efforts may
be futile. Instead of cancer being the instru-
ment of the person’s death, it’s the brain.
“There’s noshame insuicide,”Mogil said,
“just as there’s no shame in cancer. It’s an
illness, just like anything else.”
That’s why comments like “Suicide is a
totallyselfishact”or “That was astupidthing
to do,” are not helpful. It isn’t a matter of
cowardice or selfishness, Mogil explained:
The person was suffering and in pain.
Other comments that aren’t helpful: “How
did he do it?” “I knew something like this
wouldhappen,”and, after awhile, “Shouldn’t
you be over this by now?”
So what do we say?
“Be empathetic,”Mogil said.
What wouldwe say if the personhaddied
in a car accident?
“I feel terrible for you,” was one sugges-
tion. “You have every right to cry.” “I’d re-
ally like to help. Is there anything I can
do?”
Mogil also tackled the issue of suicide
prevention —what to say and what to do if
you suspect someone is depressed and con-
templating death.
The topic is all-too real in the military,
where, for the past 12 years, an average of
18 to 22 suicides take place every day.
Warningsigns include statements of help-
lessness andhopelessness, decreasedperfor-
mance and withdrawal.
Mogil urgedthose inthe audience totake
action and not shrug it off. Don’t be judg-
mental, he said, and be empathetic. He rec-
ommended, “I’m really concerned for your
safety,”“What’s happeningtodaythat is caus-
ing you to think about suicide?” and “Let’s
talk about this some more.”
MarkHarney, a clinical psychologist and
senior mental health provider at Naval
Branch Health Clinic, was in the audience
andurgedanyone whois battlingdepression
or fears for someone who is to call the De-
ployment HealthCenter, Religious Ministries
or the Fleet &Family Support Center.
The speakers stressed one last point: If
you’re affected by suicide, get help. Other
suicide survivors can help with what to say
and with dealing with the myriad emo-
tions.
“Knowthat you are never alone,”Welliv-
er said.
