Commander, U.S. 3rd Fleet Public Affairs The U.S. 3rd Fleet is hosting the inaugural Rim of the Paci c (RIMPAC) Innovation Fair at Club Pearl on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam through July 1. The fair will comprise 22 exhibitors from five countries that will discuss and demonstrate maritime capabilities and technology. The purpose of the fair is to provide partner nations an opportunity to share with and learn from each other in an unclassified environment, while allowing them to see emerging technologies they could one day use. We hope this fair will give all the RIMPAC participants an opportunity to interact with the innovation community, said Capt. Chris Sund, U.S. Navy assistant chief of staff, requirements, experimentation and innovation. Having the military members from around the world here to test and see new technologies will hopefully inspire them to think about ways they can contribute to their own missions and units. Governmental entities and government-sponsored academic researchers will display, demonstrate and explain capabilities and technologies in the areas of unmanned systems, robotics, data and information exchange, virtual reality, augmented reality and medical technology. Over the years, experimentation and innovation have become increasingly central to the RIMPAC mission. In 2016, experimentation was named a pillar of the exercise, and at-sea experiments were integrated into the of cial schedule of events. The fair will continue on Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday, July 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. RIMPAC is the worlds largest international maritime exercise and provides a unique training opportunity design to foster and sustain cooperative relationship that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the worlds interconnected oceans. Capable, Adaptive, Partners is the theme of RIMPAC 2018, which is the 26th exercise in the series that began in 1971.

Red Hill update: Coupon plate testing startsNavy Region Hawaii Public Affairs As part of the continu ing Administrative Or der on Consent (AOC) process, the Navy and Defense Logistics Agency invited regulators from the Environmental Pro tection Agency, Hawaii Department of Health, and other stakeholders to an initial viewing June 25 of steel plates called cou pons removed from a Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility tank. Ten separate coupons each about 12 inches square were cut from a tank to be assessed and tested, including for corro sion. Each selected plate had a single hole drilled through it and was in spected to ensure it was safe for removal. This removal was among the first steps to validate that non-destructive scan ning during the current tank clean, inspect, and repair process is as accurate as possible. The coupons were selected as part of col laborative AOC-driven dis cussion between the Navy and the regulators. All of the pieces were chosen based on irregu larities we noted in the scanning process, said Lt. Cmdr. Blake Whittle, fuels director, Fleet Logistics Command Pearl Harbor. We look forward to an indepth study of the samples in coming weeks as part of a nal report. An independent thirdparty lab will compare the physical specications of the removed coupons against measurements provided by several different scanning mechanisms, and a final report will be provided to the Navy and regulators.JBPHH announces RIMPAC base advisoryJoint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Public Affairs The biennial Rim of the Pacic (RIM PAC) exercise began June 27 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH).

HOOKELE What are some safety tips for beachgoers this summer?Want to see your command featured in Diverse Views? Got opinions to share? Drop us a line at editor@hookelenews.com Submitted by David D. Underwood Jr. and Ensign Heather Hill On behalf of the men and women of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, welcome to your primary base of operations for the 26th Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) e xercise. As base commander, I am focused on several priorities in support of RIMPAC, chief among them: safety and security aboard our installation. My team and I will do our best to ensure a safe, healthy, clean and secure environment for you. RIMPAC provides unique, relevant and realistic training opportunities, and we want to keep safety frontof-mind at all times. We also want to do everything possible to make our guests feel welcomed and at home. Here at the end of June weve already seen our sports fields filled with friendly soccer games and our fitness centers buzzing with activity. The Navy Exchange and Army-Air Force Exchange welcome all authorized RIMPAC visitors. Next Wednesday, July 4, we will offer a big American-style Independence Day celebration, complete with the largest reworks event on the island, to commemorate our nations birthday. Our team has a huge celebration planned for the 4th, with a musical performance by Stone Temple Pilots and lots of other attractions at Ward Field near Nimitz Gate starting in the late afternoon and going well into the evening. It should be a lot of fun. Sometime in the weeks youre here I hope youll have an opportunity to venture off base where, as you know, we have some of the worlds best beaches and some gorgeous hiking trails. Hawaii is rich in history and culture. Our staff at Morale, Welfare and Recreation can help you choose where to go and how to explore safely. Some areas of our island are safer than others. We advise being informed about where youre going and to always travel with companions. Recent editions of the Hookele our most valued means of communication each week at JBPHH are dedicated to welcoming and informing our RIMPAC guests. Ive asked our Pearl Harbor-Hickam Navy and Air Force ohana (family), as well as our neighbors, to be extra patient in the weeks ahead as we share the aloha with our 25,000 guests here for RIMPAC. We can expect even greater traffic delays, more noise and more distractions. After a decline statewide in 2017, traffic accidents involving pedestrians have spiked upward this year. Please help us prevent injuries by staying aware and defensive on and off base. As long as were all focused on safety and security we can look forward to a safe and enjoyable and successful RIMPAC 2018. Welcome aboard! Capt.

HOOKELETerri Moon Cronk DoD News Despite suffering serious injuries from an attack by a member of the Afghan security forces in 2014, Master Chief Personnel Specialist Raina Hockenberry was determined to avoid a medical retirement and stay on active duty. Hockenberry today is serving on the guided-missile cruiser USS Port Royal at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. She just garnered eight gold medals from her participation early this month in the 2018 Department of Defense Warrior Games in Colorado, competing in rowing, powerlifting, swimming and cycling. In late October, she also will compete in those four events at the Invictus Games in Sydney. I was severely injured to the point where a medical retirement made sense, she told reporters at the Pentagon yesterday. But I cant imagine not serving in the military. Its part of who we are. Hockenberry and 13 other American service members were injured when an Afghan soldier they were training began shooting at them. She was shot ve times -twice in one of her legs, shattering a tibia, once in the groin and twice in the stomach. She wore a metal brace on her leg for more than a year as she went through a grueling limb-salvage process in an attempt to regrow 6 inches of her tibia.Walter Reed Treatment, RehabThe Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient was treated and recuperated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for 18 months. During her stay there and at her request, her command gave her a laptop to continue working. Being in the military is embedded in us. That laptop made me stop being a patient, and it put the power of being a senior chief back in my identity. It was a big driving force, she said. Hockenberry hopes wounded warriors resilience, despite their injuries and illnesses, shows the wounds of war wont stop them from continuing on active duty and even taking part in such events as the Warrior Games. There are a lot of opportunities for us to be just as good and in some cases better, she said.Another ChanceAll the stars lined up for her return to active duty, she said. People were willing to give me a shot. I kept going, I kept getting better, and I got the opportunity to go back to Afghanistan in 2016, which was huge. I showed that I could function in a combat zone. I got to pass my physical tness assessments, so by hitting those wickets, and people encouraging me to hit those wickets it basically allowed me to come back to full duty. Hockenberry got caught up in the stigma thats still attached to the term wounded warrior, she said. I shied away from that term for the longest time because I didnt want people to think that I wasnt as much as any other Sailor. Now Ive learned to embrace it. The Sailors she competed with at the Warrior Games are amazing people, she said. They have lived through stuff (that) some people didnt think they could come out of the other end, and they did. So the fact that they consider me one of them is such an honor. I dont shy away from the title. For Hockenberry, the bottom line is just because service members have been injured or hurt doesnt mean they cant give their all to serving in the military. If commanding officers and those in higher ranks are willing to give us a shot, I guarantee you theyre going to get their bang for their buck, because we are people ghting to be there. We want to be there, she said. Its a part of who we are.

HOOKELEDa Chutes shut out Santa Fe in soccer duelStory and photo by Randy Dela Cruz Sports Editor, Hookele Playing solid defense throughout the game, the Da Chutes from Air Mobility Command turned up their offense in the second half and scored two goals to get past USS Santa Fe (SSN 763), 2-0, June 23 in a Summer Soccer League showdown at Earhart Field, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. In the first half, we were just conserving let them waste their energy, said Da Chutes Staff Sgt. Nick Peapea. In the second half, we turned it up. We were trying to be more aggressive toward the ball, so we were able to develop and get quick plays going. Midway through the first half, it appeared as though Santa Fe got on the scoreboard first, but the officials overturned the goal to keep the game tied at 0-0. The deadlock stood all the way to halftime, but shortly into the second half, it looked like Da Chutes took a 1-0 lead on a quick kick into the goal. However, once again, officials had a different view of the goal and overturned their second score of the game to keep the teams tied at 0-0. Finally, about midway through the second half, Peapea came through and scored a goal that both referees agreed upon for a 1-0 lead. Peapea said that he could see the play develop before him, but in the end, had to hustle to catch up with a loose ball, before tucking it into the goal. Pretty much, we were running down the line on a standard play, Peapea said about how Da Chutes broke the ice. We happened to pass the center line and I thought the ball was going out. But I just sprinted my butt off, saw the opportunity and squeezed (the ball) in there in the lower corner. As the game was nearing its close, Da Chutes got one more score to put the game away for good. The play happened on a perfectly executed corner kick that completely took Santa Fe off-guard. At the end of the game, many of the Da Chute players stated that the win was a testament to their teamwork and was great way to bounce back after suffering their rst loss of the season in the league opener. In the win over Santa Fe, Da Chute regrouped to take advantage of Santa Fes mistakes and used its speed to track down most of the 50-50 balls. In addition, the teams combined effort on defense was lights out, as it took control of the midfield and kept Santa Fe away from the goal. Overall, the teams excellent effort against Santa Fe was visible proof that the team should be able to more than hold its own against the rest of the league. Although the game is only the second of the season, Peapea said that he can see that the team has potential to finish the season high in the leagues standings. From what I see, the team has great potential, Peapea said. The league will now take a break for the Rim of the Pacific exercise, but will resume play as soon as the exercises are over.
