Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design awards were developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identify ing and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, opera tions, and maintenance solutions. is is a greener and leaner Navy facility, said Denno of the SLC Headquarters. e secre tary of the Navy and commander of Navy Installations Command have challenged the service and the shore installation enterprise in particular. eyve laid down the gauntlet for us to continue to be better stewards of the environment and tax dollars in Future relationship between two countries framed in agreementPresident Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai signed an agreement that commits the nations to negotiating and building a strategic partner ship that will frame their future relationship. Just after midnight May 2 lo cal time, sitting at a table in front of U.S. and Afghan ags at the presidential palace in the Af ghan capital of Kabul, the lead ers signed the strategic partner ship agreement. Ive come to Afghanistan to mark a historic moment for our two nations and to do so on Af ghan soil, Obama said. Im here to arm the bonds between our countries, to thank American and Afghans who have sacriced so much over these last 10 years, and to look forward to a future of peace and security and greater prosperity for our nations, he added. Neither Americans nor the Af ghan people asked for the war, the commander in chief said, yet for a decade both nations have worked to drive al-Qaida from its camps, battle an insurgency, and give the Afghan people a chance to live in dignity and peace. e wages of war have been great for both our nations, Obama said, but today with the THEkings bay, georgia Up Periscope Great stuff you can order from comic book ads Page 9 Ready Set Go The Special Olympics comes to NSB Kings Bay Page 5 Great eating Trident Refit teams compete in barbecue Page 4Check us out Online! kingsbayperiscope.com USS Alaska Gold wives cover 1,800 miles during patrol While their spouses are away on patrol, the dedicated wives of the USS Alaska (SSBN 732) Gold crew members are a patrol of their own, marching through base housing at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. ese wives came together to not only surpass their goal of collectively walking 1,000 miles, but to form friendships between new and existing crew member wives. eyre supporting one another and providing encouragement, while enriching and improv ing their lives. Ladonna Meadors, one of the USS Alaska wives, said idea of the groups walks was to get to know each other and make new friends. at was our goal, to get the wives together and meet each other, she said. What began as a twice a week activity has become a daily therapy session. e wives, along with children and even pet dogs, walk, talk and socialize. Its made the time away from their spouses a little easier and helped improve the group members morale. Im really proud our wives, Meador said. Weve walked 1,800 miles since theyve left. Even the boat has gotten excited about the walk. e wives are keeping their Sailors updated on their progress. e Sailors in turn are responding with encouraging e-mails. So if youre driving on the base or in housing and see this group of walking wives, honk your horn and show your support. During his surprise trip to Afghanistan May 1, President Barack Obama found some time be tween signing a strategic agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and delivering a speech to be broadcast back to the United States to speak with U.S. service members at Bagram Aireld. e commander in chief started by acknowledg ing Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen, commander of U.S. and NATO International Security Assistance Force troops in Afghanistan, and Ambasador Ryan C. Crocker, the senior U.S. diplomat there. Obama then listed the military units represented in the crowd, from 1st Infantry Division to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing.

May 5s 13-hour arraignment at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Walid Muhammad Salih Mubarak bin Attash, Ramzi bin al Shibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mus tafa Ahmed Adam al Haw sawi was the rst chapter of what attor neys on both sides describe as an epically complicated trial to come. Army Col. James Pohl, the judge in the case, set the rst motions hearing for June 12. Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, chief prosecutor, said he expects hundreds of motions during the proceedings. For so many determined people involved in this trial, the pursuit of justice is worth every moment spent, he said. Martin noted many of the mo tions the defense team has led and likely will le involve classi cation issues. e motions process in which either side can le, the other side responds, and nally the judge rules serves to tee up a common approach to con tested issues, the general said.

We had seen fatalities and accidents increasing as motorcycle own ership increased, Joseph Angel lo, DODs director of operational readiness and safety, told the Pentagon Channel and Ameri can Forces Press Service. In 2008, the peak year for fatalities, he added, 124 service members died in motorcycle accidents. Since that time through training, through empha sis, through leadership [and] through the phenomenal work of our military services weve brought that number down, he said.

Now hear this! Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable condence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. Norman Vincent PealeWhen it comes to our fitness and health, I think almost everyone has something they would like to change or improve. But knowing what we want or need to change is the easy part. e challenging part is taking action towards our goal and, regardless of that goal, believing in our ability to achieve it. I recently ran my rst marathon. Even before I started training, I wondered, Am I physically capable of running 26.2 miles? During my 18-week long training program, my condence uctuated. One week I would be on top of my game, having great runs and feeling unstoppable. e next week I would be so fatigued and sore, the idea of running a full marathon did not seem possible. De spite the ups and downs I experienced both physically and mentally along the way, I persevered and on race day, I felt prepared and truly believed I could complete the race. A common expression about marathons is that it is really two races: the rst 20 miles and the last 6.2. For me, this could not have been more true as I hit the wall right around mile 20. With cramping muscles, aching feet, and little energy left, I reected on how far I had come, how throughout my training, I had overcome setbacks and made adjustments when faced with limitations, and how through the power of believing in myself, I had already run 20 miles. So I thought, whats 6.2 more? and I nished the race. Henry Ford said, Whether you think that you can, or that you cant, you are usually right. Reect on a time when you set out to achieve a goal and failed. Can you remember your mindset at the time? Were you focusing on the negative? Did you lack condence in your abilities and struggle to overcome barriers? If you fail to believe in yourself, you will be restricting progress and your goals will never come to fruition. Success is dependent on hav ing a dened goal, a solid plan for achieving that goal, the motivation and commitment to work towards it, and most importantly, the belief that you have what it takes to make your goal a realty. When you believe in yourself, you will build condence and strengthen the power of your own ability to make a change in your life. It is when we exercise the belief in our selves that we get the best results.Youve got to believe to succeed Trainers Tips By Rachel Roessler-Mumma Kings Bay Fitness Coordinator trends look like we will be at that level or less. Every loss is tragic and aects spous es, parents other family members, the service members unit and the Defense Department, Angello said. We dont want anyone to lose their life in a motorcycle accident, he said. We want them to drive safe; we want them to wear protective gear helmets, appropriate shoes, appropriate attire, and leathers. But sometimes, the best protec tion against a motorcycle accident is awareness, training and control. ats your best protection. As a motorcycle rider since age 11, Angello said, he knows how much fun riding can be. But its important for riders to respect the fact that mo torcycles also are inherently danger ous, he added. It takes eort to ride a motor cycle properly, he said. Accidents happen in the blink of an eye, [and] those mistakes are unforgiving. Riders who ride safely 99 times out of 100, he added, can experience a high regret factor the one time they dont. e director noted motorcycle training is mandatory for all DOD personnel. In addition, military per sonnel are required to wear personal protective equipment, such as long sleeves, eye protection and helmets, even if they are in a no-helmet state. If you are a military member and you want to ride a motorcycle, you must have the training, Angello said. Each of our services a lot of them are common courses have a basic motorcycle safety course. You must take it or a refresher course, an advanced rider course, or a sports bike course. e Navy and Marine Corps developed the sports bike course in 2008 and shared it through the De fense Safety Oversight Council Pri vate Motor Vehicle Task Force. Sports bikes are phenomenal pieces of engineering, with powerto-weight ratios like weve never seen before, Angello said. As a result, they are very dangerous. If ridden properly, its enjoyment its fun. But they are unforgiving. Numerous deployments over the last decade have had an impact on the number of service members involved in motorcycle accidents, An gello said. We have noted, and other studies have noted, there is an increase in motorcycle accidents when people return from deployment, he said. Our data shows [it happens] par ticularly within the rst year when returning from deployment. eories as to why these fatalities are occurring include service members not having the opportunity to ride a motorcycle during deployment or the change in driving con ditions when theyre back home, Angello said. Others talk of theories such as, You become bulletproof from your experience in theater, and you take more risks at home, he said. What ever the cause, we in DOD are tak ing it very seriously. When people return from deployment our leaders are ensuring people get trained. Angello, who noted he has taken motorcycle training himself, urged all service members to take advan tage of some of the best training of fered in this nation. Right now, the courses are for service members, he said. Some of the installations, on a space-avail able basis, make arrangements for family members. However, any military member who has a dependent who wants to ride a motorcycle they should be trained. Angello lauded military leaders for their commitment to address ing motorcycle safety for having of fered courses that make a dierence in peoples lives, and urged all military members to be ready to ride, just as they are ready for the mission when they serve in uniform.Safety Up, up, and away! is familiar phrase sets the tone the 2012 Vacation Bible School pro gram. e Command Religious Pro gram of the NSB Kings Bay Chapel invites your children to be a part of this years Vacation Bible School entitled Sky Everything is Possible with God.

Autism workshop May 17every possible step and outcome of the military construction process. is state-of-the-art headquar ters exemplies the im pact of our ongoing and dynamic base-wide trans formation eort. e $7 million dollar SLC Headquarters is the most environmentally friendly and energy e cient facility aboard NSB New London. Dedicated in August 2011, the headquarters is the rst facility of its kind to be built with LEED stan dards on board the base. Its nearly 16,000 square foot space was construct ed with green materials and products with signi cant amounts of recycled content. e design and construction incorporated recycled materials from acoustic ceilings, rigid roof insulation, and gypsum wall board, to carpet and resilient ooring, said Lt. Peter C. Daddona, the SLC project construc tion manager from NAV FAC MIDLANTs Facilities Engineering and Acquisition Division Oce at the Public Works Department aboard the base. Addi tionally, only materials that were tested and cer tied for low emissions of volatile organic com pounds VOCs were used. Other design elements of the headquarters will result in lower energy and cooling, use and costs, ac cording to Daddona. A white Polyvinyl Chlo ride roof membrane provides a reective, energy ecient, cool cap to the building, and interior and exterior lighting strategies optimize natural daylight. Kelly has been im pressed with the build ings geothermal cool ing and heating system which Libonate described as the epitome of earth friendly and energy e cient expertise. e arrangement uses wells drilled into the earth, a closed loop gly col system, and a brazed heat exchanger to transfer energy to a series of waterto-air heat pumps located throughout the building. e result is the SLC headquarters is roughly 30 percent to 40 percent more energy ecient than the energy code standard for commercial buildings in the United States, and the geothermal system will pay for itself in less than 10 years. For those at the award presentation, the LEED Silver recognition was a welcome early return on investment. It is very nice to be recognized for the work that SUBASE has and will continue to do in order to align itself more closely with the SECNAVs initiative, Daddona said. For Denno the award sets the bar at SUBASE and will serve at the catalyst for fu ture greener and lean er infrastructure. Sure the SLC is now recognized as the Silver Standard for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, but its signicant and impactful initiatives make it a gold standard on Subase, Den no said.

portance. Torture is deplorable and shameful, he said. e remedy is not to just dismiss all charges. Its harder than that, he said. Martins said the governments case will not include any evi dence resulting from torture. He added he doesnt agree with defense attorneys contention that classication rules pre vent them from discussing their clients mistreatment or torture with them. ey can talk to their clients about anything, the chief pros ecutor said. What attorneys cant do, he said, is provide their clients with information that in volves sources and methods: locations of detention facilities; identities of cooperating gov ernments; identities of anyone involved in the capture, trans fer, detention or interrogation of detainees; interrogation techniques applied to individual de tainees unless that information has been declassied; and con ditions of connement. Defense attorneys diered in the views they shared with re porters on the arraignment. James Harrington is learned counsel for Shibh, which means he is experienced in death penalty cases. Under mili tary commissions rules, each defendant in a capital case is as signed a learned counsel. While the arraignment was very long, Harrington said, I could say it went smoother than some people had anticipated. ings are set to progress. Defense teams jobs are to defend their clients, regardless of public opinion or the sympathy the attorneys feel for 9/11 vic tims families, Harrington said. [e defendants] are entitled to a fair trial, he said. Its our obligation to try and get them a fair trial. Navy Cmdr. Walter Ruiz, learned counsel for Hawsawi, said the proceedings were ter rible. We had some measure of hope that legal issues raised by defense attorneys would be heard, Ruiz said. ey were not. He said that after the arraign ment, he discussed the likely duration of the coming hearings and eventual trial with a col league. Ruiz recounted what he told his co-worker: I said, I didnt believe you when you said I might retire from here. And then I said, I may never have another legal job. While attorneys on both sides predict a hard grind ahead, sev eral family members of 9/11 victims who attended the ar raignment said they are glad the proceedings happen here. Mary Henwood and her sis ter, Tara Henwood-Butzbaugh, attended the proceedings in memory of their brother, John Henwood, who was 35 when he was killed in the World Trade Centers Tower 1. He was murdered that day. He was terrorized, and he was murdered, she said. To the question of whether military commissions are appropriate to the case, she replied, Absolutely. Henwood said she has met with the prosecution and has seen the trial facilities here. I feel very comfortable that this is nally happening, she said. Cli and Christina Rus sell came here in honor of Clis brother, Stephen, a New York City reghter who died in Tow er 1. Im comfortable with it being [a capital case], Im comfort able with it being military, and Im comfortable with it being here, as opposed to being in [a] federal courthouse, he said. Russell added he came to see the proceedings not out of a desire for vengeance, but for some kind of psychological sat isfaction. Eddie Bracken came to Cuba to pay tribute to his sister, Lucy Fishman, who died in Tower 2. Bracken said a fair and just trial for the accused will show the world what America is based on. Do I respect the people that are defending them? Yes, he said. Its about our justice sys tem and how we uphold it. On the location, Bracken said, Id rather have it here. is is the safest place in the world. Bracken oered a comment hed direct to Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta if he were here: Your people are doing a great job. More than 450 Sailors, and their friends and families, at tended the advance screening of Universal Studios Battleship at Sharkey eater on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, April 28. Filming for the movie in Hawaii began in 2010 when hun dreds of Hawaii-based Sailors, veterans and Navy ships played parts in the movie. e movie featured the capa bilities of U.S. Navy destroyers and WW II veterans. In January 2010, even the Battleship Mis souri Memorial sailed out to sea for some initial lming. We dont put enough atten tion with our elders, in particu lar our veterans, said Peter Berg, the director of the movie. By far my favorite moment on Battleship is getting to meet these vet erans. Some of those guys are in their 90s, and they would come on board with the energy of a 20 year old. ey had all these stories. ey were having the best time. ey get to be on their ship. at was, by far, my career highlight. e cast of Battleship, including Peter Berg, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, and Rihanna, were all at Sharkey eater to greet the audience. e movie also featured Col. Gregory Gadson, the Director of the U.S. Army Wounded War rior Program, who is a Wounded Warrior himself. Gadson, who lost both his legs because of an improvised explosive device in 2007, practically played himself as Lt. Col. Mick Canales ghting aliens in the movie. I like to say that ghting aliens is no dierent than ght ing a human, Gadson said. If youre ghting for your life, youre going to do whatever it takes to win. To prepare for her role in the movie, Rhianna enlisted the help of Gunners Mate 2nd Class Jacquelyn Carrizosa, assigned aboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) during the lming in 2010. She really helped me out, said Rihanna. I paid attention to her, everything about the way she dressed, the way she walked, her mannerisms, how she spoke, how collected she was. at was very crucial to me playing this part.

want to do is just say thank you. e sacrices service members have made, are what make America free and secure, the presi dent said. Obama told the troops he had just signed the U.S.-Afghanistan strategic partnership agree ment, which signals the transition to turning over Afghanistans security lead to that nations own forces. Were not going to do it overnight, he said. Were not going to do it irre sponsibly. Were going to make sure that the gains, the hard-fought gains that have been made, are pre served. U.S. service members and their coalition part ners are the reason that agreement is possible, and the reason Afghans have an opportunity for a new tomorrow, he said. We did not choose this war, the president said. is war came to us on 9/11. And there are a whole bunch of folks here, Ill bet, who signed up af ter 9/11. When Americans see their homeland violated and their fellow citizens killed, he added, then we understand what we have to do. Because Americans like those at Bagram today stepped forward, the com mander in chief said, not only were we able to blunt the Taliban momentum, not only were we able to drive al-Qaida out of Af ghanistan, but slowly and systematically we have been able to decimate the ranks of al-Qaida, and a year ago we were able to nally bring Osama bin Laden to justice. Troops made that happen by doing their jobs ev ery day, he said, and their families made it happen by loving and supporting them. Together, you guys represent what is best in America, the president said. And youre part of a long line of those who have worn this uniform to make sure that we are free and secure, to make sure that those of us at home have the capacity to live our lives. Everybody in America knows and appreciates that, Obama said. And everybody in Amer ica honors it, he added. When the nal chapter of this war is written, historians will look back and say, not only was this the great est ghting force in the his tory of the world, but all of you also represented the values of America in an ex emplary way. e president said he understands troops jobs remain tough. I know the battle is not yet over, he said. Some of your buddies are going to get injured, and some of your buddies may get killed. And theres going to be heartbreak and pain and diculty ahead. But theres a light on the hori zon because of the sacri ces youve made. e nation will stand behind its troops when war ends, the president said, because youve earned it. You earned a spe cial place in our hearts, Obama said. And I could not be prouder to be your commander in chief. Troops signing of this strategic partnership agreement, we look forward to a fu ture of peace. Karzai thanked the people of the United States for the help given his own people over the decade, as well as U.S. Ambassa dor to Afghanistan Ryan C. Crocker and Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen, commander of International Security Assistance Force and of U.S. Forces Afghanistan. He also thanked Obama for bringing the partner ship agreement to Af ghanistan for signing, and the nations who are part of the ISAF coalition. ey worked with us, helped us, supported us, and of course the people of Afghanistan will never forget their help and their support and also their relationship, Karzai said. With these countries, we will have a new start with these relationships. In the legally binding strategic partnership agreement, according to a White House fact sheet on the document, Obama sought to dene with the Afghan government the landscape on the other side of the transition there and the completed draw down of U.S. forces by the end of 2014. e agreement is a signal of the United States long-term commitment to Afghanistan and represents a common vision for the relationship and Afghani stans future, the fact sheet says. According to the doc ument, U.S. commitments to support Afghanistans social and economic devel opment, security, institu tions and regional coopera tion are matched by Afghan commitments to strength en accountability, trans parency and oversight, and to protect the human rights of all Afghans men and women. e agreement includes mutual commitments in the areas of protecting and promoting shared democratic values, advancing long-term security, reinforcing regional security and cooperation, supporting social and economic development, and strengthening Afghan institutions and gover nance. Together, weve made much progress. With this agreement, the Af ghan people and the world should know that Afghanistan has a friend and a partner in the Unit ed States, Obama told Karzai. Dicult days lie ahead, Obama added, but as we move forward with our transition, Im condent that Afghan forces will grow stronger [and] the Afghan people will take control of their future. Obama also paid tribute to the Afghans who lost their lives alongside men and women of the United States who sacriced all for their country. e United States came to Afghanistan with a clear mission to destroy alQaida, he said. We have enormous respect for Afghan sovereignty and the dignity of the Afghan people, he added. But together were now com mitted to replacing war with peace and pursuing a more hopeful future as equal partners. We are committed to seeking a future of justice, peace, security and opportu nity. And I am condent that although our challenges are not yet behind us, that the future before us is bright, Obama said, borrowing words from the agreement.

Located 430 miles south of Guam in the Western Pacic Ocean, is a small, coral atoll made up of 22 islands called Woleai. Part of the Federated States of Micronesia, the atolls inhabitants are isolated from the rest of the world with their only means of communication being a VHF radio. Woleai is a unique place in the world. Everything on the atoll is communal, and there are dierent clans, each with their own chief. Above each clan chief are three paramount chiefs that rule the island. While Woleai Atoll is a place many of us have never heard of, or will like ly never visit in our lives, there are approximately 1,000 people who proudly call the atoll home. Petty Ocer 2nd Class Kensley Raigeluw, sta -When I was a kid, I always wanted to order stuff in comic book ads. But my mom said, No, its all junk. I wanted a Frontier Cabin for $1. Then a friend got one. It was a sheet of plastic with logs printed on it that you hung over a picnic table. With no breeze, it was unbearably hot under there. That same friend got something that would turn a black-and-white TV into a color TV.

Lexington was sunk during the Battle of Coral Sea when the ship was damaged and set on re by Imperial Japanese torpedo-bombers. Frey is one of few survivors who made it to safety. It couldve been me, I was just lucky, said Frey. Right after we came back up from the sick bay to help the doctors, it blew up. I went back up on the ight deck and the guys were abandoning ship. When they were going over the side I kept saying we are going to make it, they are going to salvage us. All of a sudden the ship dropped 10 degrees on the port side and I thought she was going to roll then, so we decided it was time to leave.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 10, 2012 13 tioned aboard Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis, is one of these people. Jarvis is a high-endur ance cutter that routinely deploys to the Pacic, from Russia to Panama and everywhere in be tween. While the crew travels great distances, they were recently able to take a brief departure from their primary mis sion to reunite Raigeluw with his native soil. It was the rst time Raigeluw visited home in 12 years. Raigeluws jour ney started with a chance encounter when he was just eight and Coast Guard Cutter Basswood came to the atoll. I still remember watching their small boat driv ing up to our beach and my whole community having a party for their crew, Raigeluw recalled. ey took me on a tour of their ship, and all I can re member is thinking that it would be so cool to be one of them, sailing around the world. Raigeluw left Woleai in 2000 to attend college in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, followed by the University of Hawaii in Hilo, Hawaii. In September 2005, Raigeluw was looking into joining the Army, but happened to see a Coast Guard banner online. It immediately reminded him of the Basswood and he made the decision to join the Coast Guard. After college he en listed in the Coast Guard, attending boot camp in Cape May, New Jersey, 9,000 miles away from his native atoll. After gradu ating from boot camp, he was assigned to Station Rio Vista, Calif., and now Jarvis, bringing him back full circle to the place where he was born. Anchored oshore, Jar vis crew launched both their small boats loaded with donations of canned foods, medical supplies and gifts. When asked what emo tions he felt being home after 12 years, with his crew besides him, Raigeluw could only recall one happiness. e day when my ship sailed to Woleai was one of the best days of my life. It is hard to explain how overwhelmed I was with happiness, Raigeluw said. When we arrived on shore I realized most of my uncles were starring at us from beyond the beach and had no clue who I was, especially because I was in my uniform. I had to walk closer to them before they recognized me. When word got out one of their own was there, the whole village came out to greet him. e visit lasted just hours as the cutter had to get back to the mission at hand. But before depart ing, Raigeluw presented a gift to his family a photo album containing pictures of his wife and two sons, whom his parents have never met. My family has been sea farers for generations; they have sailed all throughout Oceania. Going to sea is in my nature and ts well with my service in the Coast Guard, said Raige luw. In my upbringing, my parents instilled the importance of service to others. I take to heart the Coast Guards core values of honor, respect and devo tion to duty.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design awards were developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions. is is a greener and leaner Navy facility, said Denno of the SLC Headquarters. e secretary of the Navy and commander of Navy Installations Command have challenged the service and the shore installation enterprise in particular. eyve laid down the gauntlet for us to continue to be better stewards of the environment and tax dollars in Future relationship between two countries framed in agreementPresident Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai signed an agreement that commits the nations to negotiating and building a strategic partnership that will frame their future relationship. Just after midnight May 2 local time, sitting at a table in front of U.S. and Afghan ags at the presidential palace in the Afghan capital of Kabul, the leaders signed the strategic partnership agreement. Ive come to Afghanistan to mark a historic moment for our two nations and to do so on Afghan soil, Obama said. Im here to arm the bonds between our countries, to thank American and Afghans who have sacriced so much over these last 10 years, and to look forward to a future of peace and security and greater prosperity for our nations, he added. Neither Americans nor the Afghan people asked for the war, the commander in chief said, yet for a decade both nations have worked to drive al-Qaida from its camps, battle an insurgency, and give the Afghan people a chance to live in dignity and peace. e wages of war have been great for both our nations, Obama said, but today with the THEkings bay, georgia Up Periscope Great stuff you can order from comic book ads Page 9 Ready Set Go The Special Olympics comes to NSB Kings Bay Page 5 Great eating Trident Refit teams compete in barbecue Page 4Check us out Online! kingsbayperiscope.com USS Alaska Gold wives cover 1,800 miles during patrol While their spouses are away on patrol, the dedicated wives of the USS Alaska (SSBN 732) Gold crew members are a patrol of their own, marching through base housing at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. ese wives came together to not only surpass their goal of collectively walking 1,000 miles, but to form friendships between new and existing crew member wives. eyre supporting one another and providing encouragement, while enriching and improving their lives.

During his surprise trip to Afghanistan May 1, President Barack Obama found some time between signing a strategic agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and delivering a speech to be broadcast back to the United States to speak with U.S. service members at Bagram Aireld. e commander in chief started by acknowledging Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen, commander of U.S. and NATO International Security Assistance Force troops in Afghanistan, and Ambasador Ryan C. Crocker, the senior U.S. diplomat there. Obama then listed the military units represented in the crowd, from 1st Infantry Division to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing.

Army Col. James Pohl, the judge in the case, set the rst motions hearing for June 12. Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, chief prosecutor, said he expects hundreds of motions during the proceedings. For so many determined people involved in this trial, the pursuit of justice is worth every moment spent, he said. Martin noted many of the motions the defense team has led and likely will le involve classication issues. e motions process in which either side can le, the other side responds, and nally the judge rules serves to tee up a common approach to contested issues, the general said.

In 2008, the peak year for fatalities, he added, 124 service members died in motorcycle accidents. Since that time through training, through emphasis, through leadership [and] through the phenomenal work of our military services weve brought that number down, he said.

Now hear this! Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable condence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. Norman Vincent PealeWhen it comes to our fitness and health, I think almost everyone has something they would like to change or improve. But knowing what we want or need to change is the easy part. e challenging part is taking action towards our goal and, regardless of that goal, believing in our ability to achieve it. I recently ran my rst marathon. Even before I started training, I wondered, Am I physically capable of running 26.2 miles? During my 18-week long training program, my condence uctuated. One week I would be on top of my game, having great runs and feeling unstoppable. e next week I would be so fatigued and sore, the idea of running a full marathon did not seem possible. De spite the ups and downs I experienced both physically and mentally along the way, I persevered and on race day, I felt prepared and truly believed I could complete the race. A common expression about marathons is that it is really two races: the rst 20 miles and the last 6.2. For me, this could not have been more true as I hit the wall right around mile 20. With cramping muscles, aching feet, and little energy left, I reected on how far I had come, how throughout my training, I had overcome setbacks and made adjustments when faced with limitations, and how through the power of believing in myself, I had already run 20 miles. So I thought, whats 6.2 more? and I nished the race. Henry Ford said, Whether you think that you can, or that you cant, you are usually right. Reect on a time when you set out to achieve a goal and failed. Can you remember your mindset at the time? Were you focusing on the negative? Did you lack condence in your abilities and struggle to overcome barriers? If you fail to believe in yourself, you will be restricting progress and your goals will never come to fruition. Success is dependent on having a dened goal, a solid plan for achieving that goal, the motivation and commitment to work towards it, and most importantly, the belief that you have what it takes to make your goal a realty. When you believe in yourself, you will build condence and strengthen the power of your own ability to make a change in your life. It is when we exercise the belief in ourselves that we get the best results.Youve got to believe to succeed Trainers Tips By Rachel Roessler-Mumma Kings Bay Fitness Coordinator trends look like we will be at that level or less. Every loss is tragic and aects spous es, parents other family members, the service members unit and the Defense Department, Angello said. We dont want anyone to lose their life in a motorcycle accident, he said. We want them to drive safe; we want them to wear protective gear helmets, appropriate shoes, appropriate attire, and leathers. But sometimes, the best protection against a motorcycle accident is awareness, training and control. ats your best protection. As a motorcycle rider since age 11, Angello said, he knows how much fun riding can be. But its important for riders to respect the fact that motorcycles also are inherently dangerous, he added. It takes eort to ride a motorcycle properly, he said. Accidents happen in the blink of an eye, [and] those mistakes are unforgiving. Riders who ride safely 99 times out of 100, he added, can experience a high regret factor the one time they dont. e director noted motorcycle training is mandatory for all DOD personnel. In addition, military per sonnel are required to wear personal protective equipment, such as long sleeves, eye protection and helmets, even if they are in a no-helmet state. If you are a military member and you want to ride a motorcycle, you must have the training, Angello said. Each of our services a lot of them are common courses have a basic motorcycle safety course. You must take it or a refresher course, an advanced rider course, or a sports bike course. e Navy and Marine Corps developed the sports bike course in 2008 and shared it through the Defense Safety Oversight Council Private Motor Vehicle Task Force. Sports bikes are phenomenal pieces of engineering, with powerto-weight ratios like weve never seen before, Angello said. As a result, they are very dangerous. If ridden properly, its enjoyment its fun. But they are unforgiving. Numerous deployments over the last decade have had an impact on the number of service members involved in motorcycle accidents, Angello said. We have noted, and other studies have noted, there is an increase in motorcycle accidents when people return from deployment, he said. Our data shows [it happens] particularly within the rst year when returning from deployment. eories as to why these fatalities are occurring include service members not having the opportunity to ride a motorcycle during deployment or the change in driving conditions when theyre back home, Angello said. Others talk of theories such as, You become bulletproof from your experience in theater, and you take more risks at home, he said. Whatever the cause, we in DOD are taking it very seriously. When people return from deployment our leaders are ensuring people get trained. Angello, who noted he has taken motorcycle training himself, urged all service members to take advantage of some of the best training offered in this nation. Right now, the courses are for service members, he said. Some of the installations, on a space-available basis, make arrangements for family members. However, any military member who has a dependent who wants to ride a motorcycle they should be trained. Angello lauded military leaders for their commitment to addressing motorcycle safety for having offered courses that make a dierence in peoples lives, and urged all military members to be ready to ride, just as they are ready for the mission when they serve in uniform.Safety Up, up, and away! is familiar phrase sets the tone the 2012 Vacation Bible School program. e Command Religious Program of the NSB Kings Bay Chapel invites your children to be a part of this years Vacation Bible School entitled Sky Everything is Possible with God.

Autism workshop May 17every possible step and outcome of the military construction process. is state-of-the-art headquarters exemplies the impact of our ongoing and dynamic base-wide transformation eort. e $7 million dollar SLC Headquarters is the most environmentally friendly and energy ecient facility aboard NSB New London. Dedicated in August 2011, the headquarters is the rst facility of its kind to be built with LEED standards on board the base. Its nearly 16,000 square foot space was constructed with green materials and products with signicant amounts of recycled content. e design and construction incorporated recycled materials from acoustic ceilings, rigid roof insulation, and gypsum wall board, to carpet and resilient ooring, said Lt. Peter C. Daddona, the SLC project construction manager from NAVFAC MIDLANTs Facilities Engineering and Acquisition Division Oce at the Public Works Department aboard the base. Additionally, only materials that were tested and certied for low emissions of volatile organic compounds VOCs were used. Other design elements of the headquarters will result in lower energy and cooling, use and costs, according to Daddona. A white Polyvinyl Chloride roof membrane provides a reective, energy ecient, cool cap to the building, and interior and exterior lighting strategies optimize natural daylight. Kelly has been impressed with the buildings geothermal cooling and heating system which Libonate described as the epitome of earth friendly and energy ecient expertise. e arrangement uses wells drilled into the earth, a closed loop glycol system, and a brazed heat exchanger to transfer energy to a series of waterto-air heat pumps located throughout the building. e result is the SLC headquarters is roughly 30 percent to 40 percent more energy ecient than the energy code standard for commercial buildings in the United States, and the geothermal system will pay for itself in less than 10 years. For those at the award presentation, the LEED Silver recognition was a welcome early return on investment. It is very nice to be recognized for the work that SUBASE has and will continue to do in order to align itself more closely with the SECNAVs initiative, Daddona said. For Denno the award sets the bar at SUBASE and will serve at the catalyst for future greener and leaner infrastructure. Sure the SLC is now recognized as the Silver Standard for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, but its signicant and impactful initiatives make it a gold standard on Subase, Denno said.

portance. Torture is deplorable and shameful, he said. e remedy is not to just dismiss all charges. Its harder than that, he said. Martins said the governments case will not include any evidence resulting from torture. He added he doesnt agree with defense attorneys contention that classication rules prevent them from discussing their clients mistreatment or torture with them. ey can talk to their clients about anything, the chief prosecutor said. What attorneys cant do, he said, is provide their clients with information that involves sources and methods: locations of detention facilities; identities of cooperating governments; identities of anyone involved in the capture, transfer, detention or interrogation of detainees; interrogation techniques applied to individual detainees unless that information has been declassied; and conditions of connement. Defense attorneys diered in the views they shared with reporters on the arraignment. James Harrington is learned counsel for Shibh, which means he is experienced in death penalty cases. Under military commissions rules, each defendant in a capital case is assigned a learned counsel. While the arraignment was very long, Harrington said, I could say it went smoother than some people had anticipated. ings are set to progress. Defense teams jobs are to defend their clients, regardless of public opinion or the sympathy the attorneys feel for 9/11 victims families, Harrington said. [e defendants] are entitled to a fair trial, he said. Its our obligation to try and get them a fair trial. Navy Cmdr. Walter Ruiz, learned counsel for Hawsawi, said the proceedings were terrible. We had some measure of hope that legal issues raised by defense attorneys would be heard, Ruiz said. ey were not. He said that after the arraignment, he discussed the likely duration of the coming hearings and eventual trial with a colleague. Ruiz recounted what he told his co-worker: I said, I didnt believe you when you said I might retire from here. And then I said, I may never have another legal job. While attorneys on both sides predict a hard grind ahead, several family members of 9/11 victims who attended the arraignment said they are glad the proceedings happen here. Mary Henwood and her sister, Tara Henwood-Butzbaugh, attended the proceedings in memory of their brother, John Henwood, who was 35 when he was killed in the World Trade Centers Tower 1. He was murdered that day. He was terrorized, and he was murdered, she said. To the question of whether military commissions are appropriate to the case, she replied, Absolutely. Henwood said she has met with the prosecution and has seen the trial facilities here. I feel very comfortable that this is nally happening, she said. Cli and Christina Russell came here in honor of Clis brother, Stephen, a New York City reghter who died in Tower 1. Im comfortable with it being [a capital case], Im comfortable with it being military, and Im comfortable with it being here, as opposed to being in [a] federal courthouse, he said. Russell added he came to see the proceedings not out of a desire for vengeance, but for some kind of psychological satisfaction. Eddie Bracken came to Cuba to pay tribute to his sister, Lucy Fishman, who died in Tower 2. Bracken said a fair and just trial for the accused will show the world what America is based on. Do I respect the people that are defending them? Yes, he said. Its about our justice system and how we uphold it. On the location, Bracken said, Id rather have it here. is is the safest place in the world. Bracken oered a comment hed direct to Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta if he were here: Your people are doing a great job. More than 450 Sailors, and their friends and families, attended the advance screening of Universal Studios Battleship at Sharkey eater on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, April 28. Filming for the movie in Hawaii began in 2010 when hundreds of Hawaii-based Sailors, veterans and Navy ships played parts in the movie. e movie featured the capabilities of U.S. Navy destroyers and WW II veterans. In January 2010, even the Battleship Missouri Memorial sailed out to sea for some initial lming. We dont put enough attention with our elders, in particular our veterans, said Peter Berg, the director of the movie. By far my favorite moment on Battleship is getting to meet these veterans. Some of those guys are in their 90s, and they would come on board with the energy of a 20 year old. ey had all these stories. ey were having the best time. ey get to be on their ship. at was, by far, my career highlight. e cast of Battleship, including Peter Berg, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, and Rihanna, were all at Sharkey eater to greet the audience. e movie also featured Col. Gregory Gadson, the Director of the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program, who is a Wounded Warrior himself. Gadson, who lost both his legs because of an improvised explosive device in 2007, practically played himself as Lt. Col. Mick Canales ghting aliens in the movie. I like to say that ghting aliens is no dierent than ghting a human, Gadson said. If youre ghting for your life, youre going to do whatever it takes to win. To prepare for her role in the movie, Rhianna enlisted the help of Gunners Mate 2nd Class Jacquelyn Carrizosa, assigned aboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) during the lming in 2010. She really helped me out, said Rihanna. I paid attention to her, everything about the way she dressed, the way she walked, her mannerisms, how she spoke, how collected she was. at was very crucial to me playing this part. She was a pretty girl but very, very tough. Her demeanor was so quiet and sweet, and then you see her put on this uniform and she walks on the set, shes a whole dierent beast. She helps me as a friend but when she gets in her element shes very intimidating. During the lming, Rihanna and the rest of the cast interacted with many of the Sailors in Hawaii so the actors could better understand their roles in the movie.

want to do is just say thank you. e sacrices service members have made, are what make America free and secure, the president said. Obama told the troops he had just signed the U.S.-Afghanistan strategic partnership agreement, which signals the transition to turning over Afghanistans security lead to that nations own forces. Were not going to do it overnight, he said. Were not going to do it irresponsibly. Were going to make sure that the gains, the hard-fought gains that have been made, are preserved. U.S. service members and their coalition partners are the reason that agreement is possible, and the reason Afghans have an opportunity for a new tomorrow, he said. We did not choose this war, the president said. is war came to us on 9/11. And there are a whole bunch of folks here, Ill bet, who signed up after 9/11. When Americans see their homeland violated and their fellow citizens killed, he added, then we understand what we have to do. Because Americans like those at Bagram today stepped forward, the commander in chief said, not only were we able to blunt the Taliban momentum, not only were we able to drive al-Qaida out of Afghanistan, but slowly and systematically we have been able to decimate the ranks of al-Qaida, and a year ago we were able to nally bring Osama bin Laden to justice. Troops made that happen by doing their jobs every day, he said, and their families made it happen by loving and supporting them. Together, you guys represent what is best in America, the president said. And youre part of a long line of those who have worn this uniform to make sure that we are free and secure, to make sure that those of us at home have the capacity to live our lives. Everybody in America knows and appreciates that, Obama said. And everybody in Amer ica honors it, he added. When the nal chapter of this war is written, historians will look back and say, not only was this the great est ghting force in the his tory of the world, but all of you also represented the values of America in an ex emplary way. e president said he understands troops jobs remain tough. I know the battle is not yet over, he said. Some of your buddies are going to get injured, and some of your buddies may get killed. And theres going to be heartbreak and pain and diculty ahead. But theres a light on the horizon because of the sacrices youve made. e nation will stand behind its troops when war ends, the president said, because youve earned it. You earned a special place in our hearts, Obama said. And I could not be prouder to be your commander in chief. Troops signing of this strategic partnership agreement, we look forward to a future of peace. Karzai thanked the people of the United States for the help given his own people over the decade, as well as U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan C. Crocker and Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen, commander of International Security Assistance Force and of U.S. Forces Afghanistan. He also thanked Obama for bringing the partnership agreement to Afghanistan for signing, and the nations who are part of the ISAF coalition. ey worked with us, helped us, supported us, and of course the people of Afghanistan will never forget their help and their support and also their relationship, Karzai said. With these countries, we will have a new start with these relationships. In the legally binding strategic partnership agreement, according to a White House fact sheet on the document, Obama sought to dene with the Afghan government the landscape on the other side of the transition there and the completed drawdown of U.S. forces by the end of 2014. e agreement is a signal of the United States long-term commitment to Afghanistan and represents a common vision for the relationship and Afghani stans future, the fact sheet says. According to the doc ument, U.S. commitments to support Afghanistans social and economic devel opment, security, institu tions and regional coopera tion are matched by Afghan commitments to strength en accountability, trans parency and oversight, and to protect the human rights of all Afghans men and women. e agreement includes mutual commitments in the areas of protecting and promoting shared democratic values, advancing long-term security, reinforcing regional security and cooperation, supporting social and economic development, and strengthening Afghan institutions and governance. Together, weve made much progress. With this agreement, the Afghan people and the world should know that Afghanistan has a friend and a partner in the United States, Obama told Karzai. Dicult days lie ahead, Obama added, but as we move forward with our transition, Im condent that Afghan forces will grow stronger [and] the Afghan people will take control of their future. Obama also paid tribute to the Afghans who lost their lives alongside men and women of the United States who sacriced all for their country. e United States came to Afghanistan with a clear mission to destroy alQaida, he said. We have enormous respect for Afghan sovereignty and the dignity of the Afghan people, he added. But together were now committed to replacing war with peace and pursuing a more hopeful future as equal partners. We are committed to seeking a future of justice, peace, security and opportunity. And I am condent that although our challenges are not yet behind us, that the future before us is bright, Obama said, borrowing words from the agreement.

Located 430 miles south of Guam in the Western Pacic Ocean, is a small, coral atoll made up of 22 islands called Woleai. Part of the Federated States of Micronesia, the atolls inhabitants are isolated from the rest of the world with their only means of communication being a VHF radio. Woleai is a unique place in the world. Everything on the atoll is communal, and there are dierent clans, each with their own chief. Above each clan chief are three paramount chiefs that rule the island. While Woleai Atoll is a place many of us have never heard of, or will likely never visit in our lives, there are approximately 1,000 people who proudly call the atoll home.

Then a friend got one. It was a sheet of plastic with logs printed on it that you hung over a picnic table. With no breeze, it was unbearably hot under there.

Lexington was sunk during the Battle of Coral Sea when the ship was damaged and set on re by Imperial Japanese torpedo-bombers. Frey is one of few survivors who made it to safety. It couldve been me, I was just lucky, said Frey. Right after we came back up from the sick bay to help the doctors, it blew up. I went back up on the ight deck and the guys were abandoning ship. When they were going over the side I kept saying we are going to make it, they are going to salvage us. All of a sudden the ship dropped 10 degrees on the port side and I thought she was going to roll then, so we decided it was time to leave.

While the crew travels great distances, they were recently able to take a brief departure from their primary mission to reunite Raigeluw with his native soil. It was the rst time Raigeluw visited home in 12 years. Raigeluws journey started with a chance encounter when he was just eight and Coast Guard Cutter Basswood came to the atoll. I still remember watching their small boat driving up to our beach and my whole community having a party for their crew, Raigeluw recalled. ey took me on a tour of their ship, and all I can remember is thinking that it would be so cool to be one of them, sailing around the world. Raigeluw left Woleai in 2000 to attend college in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, followed by the University of Hawaii in Hilo, Hawaii. In September 2005, Raigeluw was looking into joining the Army, but happened to see a Coast Guard banner online. It immediately reminded him of the Basswood and he made the decision to join the Coast Guard. After college he enlisted in the Coast Guard, attending boot camp in Cape May, New Jersey, 9,000 miles away from his native atoll. After graduating from boot camp, he was assigned to Station Rio Vista, Calif., and now Jarvis, bringing him back full circle to the place where he was born. Anchored oshore, Jarvis crew launched both their small boats loaded with donations of canned foods, medical supplies and gifts. When asked what emotions he felt being home after 12 years, with his crew besides him, Raigeluw could only recall one happiness. e day when my ship sailed to Woleai was one of the best days of my life. It is hard to explain how overwhelmed I was with happiness, Raigeluw said. When we arrived on shore I realized most of my uncles were starring at us from beyond the beach and had no clue who I was, especially because I was in my uniform. I had to walk closer to them before they recognized me. When word got out one of their own was there, the whole village came out to greet him. e visit lasted just hours as the cutter had to get back to the mission at hand. But before departing, Raigeluw presented a gift to his family a photo album containing pictures of his wife and two sons, whom his parents have never met. My family has been sea farers for generations; they have sailed all throughout Oceania. Going to sea is in my nature and ts well with my service in the Coast Guard, said Raige luw. In my upbringing, my parents instilled the importance of service to others. I take to heart the Coast Guards core values of honor, respect and devo tion to duty.
