Student standards meeting Aug. 30 Guest blogger Navy Lt. eresa Donnelly is the owner of Hawaii Military Pets, a volunteer online re source for military families in Ha waii. e blog and Facebook page provide information on moving with pets in the military, boarding infor mation and pet policies in state and federal governments. She partners with nonprots that specialize in ser vice members and their companion animals, such as Dogs on Deployment and Pets for Patriots. As my military family prepares to move to San Diego next year after almost seven years of Hawaii duty, we are dealing with what many mili tary families endure how to nd a rental that allows our big, goofy well-behaved boxer dogs. Our society loves pets, with most Americans owning at least one. Ac cording to the American Pet Prod ucts Association, 62 percent of all households have pets, but owners struggle to nd aordable and safe rental properties. e National Council on Pet Population and Research found that moving is the most common reason owners give up their dogs, and the third most common reason they give up their cats. Some of the hardships faced by families with animals are restric tive pet policies, which occur in privatized military housing, o-base rentals and city and state govern ments. ese policies also prevent some pet owners from obtaining insurance when purchasing a home. Its unfortunate that irresponsible pet owners have caused prop erty owners, rental companies and even city and state governments to adopt such policies, but there are resources to help military families overcome the challenge. If youre not ready to buy a home, but determined to nd a rental where you can keep your pets, here are some tips to help ensure all members of the family can stay un der one roof: Check with other military fami lies to find out whats worked for them. I have two large dogs, and I started looking early, not because I want to choose a place early, but because sometimes you notice pat terns in which rental management companies are more pet friendly. Ill contact people that say, no pets but then offer a larger pet deposit if its a house I really like, said Kristen McDeeLite, a military spouse sta tioned in Hawaii. As soon as you know the loca tion of your next duty station, start looking online. A great resource is the Automatic Housing Referral Network. Sponsored by the Defense Department, this free service lists off-base rentals, privatized mili tary housing, temporary lodging, military-shared rentals, and allows property owners to list their homes for rent. On the listing, there is a paw print next to each rental and infor mation on banned breeds as well as weight, size and numeric limits. Contact your sponsor, the base family service center and a local ani mal shelter. Your sponsor may have a newcomers packet with housing information. Talk to families already living there and ask them for rec ommendations. See if local shelters have a housing pet program or other referral services. Call properties that state no pets and nd out why. Perhaps you can build a rapport with the property owner and better under stand their negative experiences. Maybe your family can help them overcome the negative stereotypes caused by irresponsible pet owners. Demonstrate to your land lord that you consider your pet a cherished, lifetime, indoor family member. Oer to bring your freshly groomed, well-behaved pet to an interview with the property owner and have letters of reference from previous landlords, neighbors, obe dience instructors and your veteri narian attesting to the good behav ior of your pet(s). Have all veterinar ian records handy and oer to sign a pet addendum making you person ally liable for damage to property and injury to others. Moving is rarely a smooth, stressfree process. But by preparing early, putting aside savings and planning smartly, you will help alleviate some of the hassles involved and help ensure your furry family member arrives at your next duty station happy and healthy. August marks the third anniversa ry of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and since it was implemented, the Depart ment of Veterans Aairs has provid ed educational benets to 773,000 veterans and their family members, according to a Department of Veter ans Aairs news release. is is one of the most impor tant programs helping our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans reach their educational goals, Secretary of Vet erans Aairs Eric K. Shinseki said. Were proud this important benet is making such a big dierence in the lives of so many veterans. e Post-9/11 GI Bill pays tuition and fees on behalf of veterans or eligible dependents to the school in which they are enrolled. Eligible participants also receive a monthly housing allowance and up to $1,000 annually for books and supplies. e program also allows eligible service members to transfer their benets to their spouses and children. e program provides a wide range of educational options, including undergraduate and grad uate degrees, vocational/technical training, on-the-job training, ight training, correspondence training, licensing and national testing programs, entrepreneurship training, and tutorial assistance. For over 68 years, GI Bill pro grams have shaped and changed the lives of service members, veter ans, their families and survivors by helping them reach their educational goals, said Allison A. Hickey, Veterans Aairs Undersec retary for Benets. Benets provided under the Post-9/11 GI Bill will continue to shape and change the lives of veterans by helping them build a stronger foundation for their ca reers. e Post-9/11 GI Bill is the most extensive educational assistance program since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944. VA has since paid more than $20 billion in benets to veterans and their family members. For the 2012-2013 academic year, 1,770 colleges and universities are supplementing Post-9/11 GI Bill benets by participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, degreegranting institutions make additional funds available for a veterans educa tional program without an additional charge to their GI Bill entitlement. To make up the dierence for those students whose tuition and fees exceed what the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers, institutions can volun tarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA to designate an additional amount of funding, and VA will match that amount. VA is seeking legal authority to trademark the term GI Bill. President Barack Obama signed an executive order on April 26, 2012, directing VA and the Department of Defense to undertake a number of measures to stop deceptive and misleading promotional eorts that target the GI Bill educational benets of ser vice members, veterans, and eligible family members and survivors. In June, the attorneys general of several states gave VA the rights to the GIBill.com Web site after the original owners agreed to give up the internet site to settle a lawsuit by the states.

ruthlessly followed the orders given. None of the soldiers, until ompson ew over, questioned their orders or challenged their commanders. Conformity can be a negative side of cohesion if Corps values of individuals are eroded, said Charron, a native of Hack ensack, N.J. ompson was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. When he saw what soldiers were doing in My Lai, he landed his helicopter and blocked U.S. troops from a group of surviving villagers. He then ordered his own men to open re on fellow sol diers if they were to re on the survivors. e chief warrant ocer saved dozens of civilians to include women, chil dren and elders, with his acts of moral courage. e Vietnam War was a dierent kind of war. Americans were getting killed by booby traps, mines and sniper re, ex plained Scalise, a native of Hampton, Iowa. ey couldnt see or actually ght the enemy for the majority of the war. Sometimes emotions cause us to abandon our rational thoughts and shifts our moral judgment from long-term absolutes, to short-term pragmatic solutions, Charron said. Its not an easy thing to do but shifts can be dangerous. Marines dont do that, the sergeant major added forcefully. However, thats exactly what American troops did in My Lai. ey let their emotions get to them, re sulting in hundreds of in nocent deaths. Good people can be in duced, seduced and initiated into behaving in evil ways, said Professor Philip Zimbardo, a psychology professor at Stanford University, whose 1971 exper iment was featured in the ethics stand-down. Zimbardo set up a mock prison scenario with 18 young men split up be tween guards and prisoners. Just into the second day, guards started to take advantage of their power and abuse the prisoners. Six days and one ner vous break-down later, Zimbardo stopped the scheduled two-week ex periment before someone was hurt. ats what sets Ma rines apart, the American public expects more from Marines, said Charron, in response to Zimbardos experiment. When Charron asked the Marines what they took from the PME, 1st Sgt. Ar thur Hernandez said, Al ways know who you are, where you are and what your responsibilities are. For military person nel or civilians, ethics can be as important as sav ing hundreds of lives, or as little as returning extra change given by a cashier.

For the next few weeks, Im suspending my quest for deep answers to penetrating questions onboard NSB Kings Bay to share a little military history with you. Initially, I was going to combine the three branches we find at Kings Bay Navy, Marines and Coast Guard but there are so many great quotes that I decided to split them into a three-part series. This week, we start with the Navy, which is steeped in traditionally great say ings. Five of these are etched on the Navy Memorial. Capt. John Paul Jones 1747-1742 Bonhomme Richard vs. HMS Serapis American Revolution I have not yet begun to fight. Adm. David Farragut 1801-1870 Battle of Mobile Bay American Civil War Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead. Chaplain Lt. Howell Forgey 1908-1974 Pearl Harbor World War II Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. Adm. George Dewey 1837-1917 Battle of Manila Bay Spanish-American War You may fire when you are ready, Gridley. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry 1785-1819 Battle of Lake Erie War of 1813 We have met the enemy, and they are ours. Capt. James Lawrence 1781-1813 U.S. Frigate Chesapeake vs. HMS Shannon War of 1812 Tell the men to fire faster. Dont give up the ship.

Dempsey said he was pleased that Afghan President Ha mid Karzai strongly spoke out against these attacks. e president speaking on it was tremendously important, and I hope it permeates to the lowest levels of the Afghan government and military, he said.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 23, 2012 13 USS Constitution departed her berth from Charlestown, Mass. Aug. 19, to set sail for the rst time since 1997, during an underway demonstration commemorating Guerriere Day. e underway honored the 200th anniversary of Constitutions decisive victory over the HMS Guerriere during the War of 1812, marking the rst time a United States frigate defeated a Royal Navy frigate at or nearly equal size. Its also the battle in which Constitution earned her famous nick name Old Ironsides. I cannot think of a bet ter way to honor those who fought in the war as well as celebrate Constitutions successes during the War of 1812 than for the ship to be under sail, said Cmdr. Matt Bonner, Constitu tions 72nd commanding ocer. e event also ties our past and present by having the ship not only crewed by the outstanding young men and women who make up her crew, but also the 150 chief petty ocer [CPO] selectees who join us for their Heri tage Week. More than 150 CPO se lectees and CPO mentor chiefs assisted Constitu tions crew in setting sails. CPO selectees participated in Constitutions an nual CPO Heritage Weeks, a weeklong training cycle divided by two weeks that teaches selectees timehonored maritime evolu tions, such as gun drills, line handling and setting sails. e training also is de signed to instill pride in naval heritage in the Na vys senior enlisted leader ship. Im a boatswains mate, said Chief (Select) Boatswains Mate Michael Zgoda, assigned to USS Ingraham (FFG 61). is is the foundation of my rate. Being able to learn from a variety of genuine chiefs and their dierent per spectives on leadership is overwhelming and important to the chief petty ocer transition. Im ex tremely honored to be a part of the group that can say they sailed the USS Constitution. e ship got underway at 9:57 a.m. with tugs at tached to her sides and 285 people on board, including special guests, such as the 58th, 59th, 62nd and 65th former commanding ocers of Constitution; Rear Adm. Richard Breckenridge, Commander, Submarine Group Two; Rear Adm. Ted Branch, Commander, Naval Air Forces Atlan tic; Vice Adm. William French, Commander, Navy Installations Command; retired Navy Capt. omas Hudner Jr., Medal of Honor recipient; and Dr. Phil Budden, Britains Consul General to New England. At 10:27 a.m., Bud den and Bonner tossed a wreath into the ocean to honor and remember Constitutions battle with the HMS Guerriere. When the ship arrived at President Roads, a body of water of Boston Harbor, the crew then set three sails from Constitu tions main, mizzen and fore masts, and at 12:25 p.m., she detached from her tugs and sailed west under her own power for 17 minutes. She sailed at a maximum speed of 3.1 knots, at an average of two knots, and at a distance of 1,100 yards. As the ships sail mas ter, I felt a combination of pride and relief that the hundreds of man hours of training and planning over the past year all came together, and we were able to accomplish this goal, said Boatswains Mate 1st Class Conrad Hunt. Im really proud that I can say I was a part of this historic occasion. After tugs reattached to Constitutions sides, the ship headed to Fort In dependence on Castle Is land, where thousands of spectators waited to watch Constitution re a 21-gun salute toward the fort at 1:14 p.m. Fort Independence is a state park that served as a defense post for Boston Harbor at one time. Finally, the ship re turned to her pier at 2:05 p.m. and everyone de parted once the brow was safely set and the ship was clean. Constitution reopened to the public for tours of the ships history at 4 p.m. For me, this underway is representative of an in credible amount of work and dedication by not only the crew, but Maintenance and Repair Facility, Naval History and Heritage Command, and all of the partners coming together to make this happen, said Aircrew Survival Equipmentman 1st Class Jason Keith, who is the longest serving crew member cur rently assigned to Constitution. Keith reported to the ship April 13, 2009 and will depart Aug. 31. Ive given tours to thousands of people, shined brass for hundreds of hours, and Ive climbed the rigging to set and furl these sails over and over again. But sailing USS Constitution on Aug. 19, 2012 is one of the great est honors Ive had in my naval career, and Im truly proud to be a part of this history. e last time Constitu tion sailed under her own power was July 21, 1997 to honor the ships 200th birthday. It was the rst time the ship sailed in 116 years. When we sailed the ship, it became clear it was a dierent experience you cant have in port, said Lance Beebe, a crew member aboard Constitu tions 1997 sail. e ship comes alive, and you truly understand what she is all about. is new crew [2012 Sailors] just joined a group of crew members [1997 Sailors] that also got to experience Constitution under sail, and they became a signicant part of her history as a result. USS Constitution hosted the unveiling of the United States Postal Service Forever stamp to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 from the ships berth in Charlestown, Mass., Aug. 18. e ceremony also commemorated the ships historic battle and victory over the HMS Guerriere that took place Aug. 19, 1812, and earned Constitution the nickname Old Ironsides. It is such an honor for Constitution to be immortalized on a Forever stamp, said Cmdr. Mat thew Bonner, Constitu tions 72nd commanding ocer. And there is no better time than dur ing the bicentennial of the War of 1812 during which Constitution and the Navy played such a pivotal role. Bostons Postmaster James Holland kicked o the unveiling pier-side to Constitution with more than 200 invited guests, avid stamp collectors and public visitors in at tendance. After the ceremony, the USPS also sold For ever stamps at National Park Services Charles town Navy Yard. Twentyve million stamps will be available for purchase at the USPS Web site, phone center and at post oces. is is the third time USS Constitution has been part of our stamp program, said Maureen Marion, USPS, manager of corporate communication. e rst stamp was a three-cent First Class stamp issued in 1947, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Constitutions launch, and the second was a sixcent non-prot stamped envelope issued in 1985.

Student standards meeting Aug. 30 Guest blogger Navy Lt. eresa Donnelly is the owner of Hawaii Military Pets, a volunteer online resource for military families in Hawaii. e blog and Facebook page provide information on moving with pets in the military, boarding information and pet policies in state and federal governments. She partners with nonprots that specialize in service members and their companion animals, such as Dogs on Deployment and Pets for Patriots. As my military family prepares to move to San Diego next year after almost seven years of Hawaii duty, we are dealing with what many military families endure how to nd a rental that allows our big, goofy well-behaved boxer dogs. Our society loves pets, with most Americans owning at least one. According to the American Pet Products Association, 62 percent of all households have pets, but owners struggle to nd aordable and safe rental properties. e National Council on Pet Population and Research found that moving is the most common reason owners give up their dogs, and the third most common reason they give up their cats. Some of the hardships faced by families with animals are restrictive pet policies, which occur in privatized military housing, o-base rentals and city and state governments. ese policies also prevent some pet owners from obtaining insurance when purchasing a home. Its unfortunate that irresponsible pet owners have caused property owners, rental companies and even city and state governments to adopt such policies, but there are resources to help military families overcome the challenge. If youre not ready to buy a home, but determined to nd a rental where you can keep your pets, here are some tips to help ensure all members of the family can stay under one roof: Check with other military families to find out whats worked for them. I have two large dogs, and I started looking early, not because I want to choose a place early, but because sometimes you notice patterns in which rental management companies are more pet friendly. Ill contact people that say, no pets but then offer a larger pet deposit if its a house I really like, said Kristen McDeeLite, a military spouse stationed in Hawaii. As soon as you know the location of your next duty station, start looking online. A great resource is the Automatic Housing Referral Network. Sponsored by the Defense Department, this free service lists off-base rentals, privatized mili tary housing, temporary lodging, military-shared rentals, and allows property owners to list their homes for rent. On the listing, there is a paw print next to each rental and information on banned breeds as well as weight, size and numeric limits. Contact your sponsor, the base family service center and a local animal shelter. Your sponsor may have a newcomers packet with housing information. Talk to families already living there and ask them for recommendations. See if local shelters have a housing pet program or other referral services. Call properties that state no pets and nd out why. Perhaps you can build a rapport with the property owner and better understand their negative experiences. Maybe your family can help them overcome the negative stereotypes caused by irresponsible pet owners. Demonstrate to your land lord that you consider your pet a cherished, lifetime, indoor family member. Oer to bring your freshly groomed, well-behaved pet to an interview with the property owner and have letters of reference from previous landlords, neighbors, obedience instructors and your veterinarian attesting to the good behavior of your pet(s). Have all veterinarian records handy and oer to sign a pet addendum making you personally liable for damage to property and injury to others. Moving is rarely a smooth, stressfree process. But by preparing early, putting aside savings and planning smartly, you will help alleviate some of the hassles involved and help ensure your furry family member arrives at your next duty station happy and healthy. August marks the third anniversary of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and since it was implemented, the Department of Veterans Aairs has provided educational benets to 773,000 veterans and their family members, according to a Department of Veterans Aairs news release. is is one of the most important programs helping our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans reach their educational goals, Secretary of Veterans Aairs Eric K. Shinseki said. Were proud this important benet is making such a big dierence in the lives of so many veterans. e Post-9/11 GI Bill pays tuition and fees on behalf of veterans or eligible dependents to the school in which they are enrolled. Eligible participants also receive a monthly housing allowance and up to $1,000 annually for books and supplies. e program also allows eligible service members to transfer their benets to their spouses and children. e program provides a wide range of educational options, including undergraduate and graduate degrees, vocational/technical training, on-the-job training, ight training, correspondence training, licensing and national testing programs, entrepreneurship training, and tutorial assistance. For over 68 years, GI Bill programs have shaped and changed the lives of service members, veterans, their families and survivors by helping them reach their educational goals, said Allison A. Hickey, Veterans Aairs Undersecretary for Benets. Benets provided under the Post-9/11 GI Bill will continue to shape and change the lives of veterans by helping them build a stronger foundation for their careers. e Post-9/11 GI Bill is the most extensive educational assistance program since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944. VA has since paid more than $20 billion in benets to veterans and their family members. For the 2012-2013 academic year, 1,770 colleges and universities are supplementing Post-9/11 GI Bill benets by participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, degreegranting institutions make additional funds available for a veterans educa tional program without an additional charge to their GI Bill entitlement. To make up the dierence for those students whose tuition and fees exceed what the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers, institutions can voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA to designate an additional amount of funding, and VA will match that amount. VA is seeking legal authority to trademark the term GI Bill. President Barack Obama signed an executive order on April 26, 2012, directing VA and the Department of Defense to undertake a number of measures to stop deceptive and misleading promotional eorts that target the GI Bill educational benets of service members, veterans, and eligible family members and survivors.

ruthlessly followed the orders given. None of the soldiers, until ompson ew over, questioned their orders or challenged their commanders. Conformity can be a negative side of cohesion if Corps values of individuals are eroded, said Charron, a native of Hackensack, N.J. ompson was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. When he saw what soldiers were doing in My Lai, he landed his helicopter and blocked U.S. troops from a group of surviving villagers. He then ordered his own men to open re on fellow soldiers if they were to re on the survivors. e chief warrant ocer saved dozens of civilians to include women, children and elders, with his acts of moral courage. e Vietnam War was a dierent kind of war. Americans were getting killed by booby traps, mines and sniper re, explained Scalise, a native of Hampton, Iowa. ey couldnt see or actually ght the enemy for the majority of the war. Sometimes emotions cause us to abandon our rational thoughts and shifts our moral judgment from long-term absolutes, to short-term pragmatic solutions, Charron said. Its not an easy thing to do but shifts can be dangerous. Marines dont do that, the sergeant major added forcefully. However, thats exactly what American troops did in My Lai. ey let their emotions get to them, resulting in hundreds of innocent deaths. Good people can be induced, seduced and initiated into behaving in evil ways, said Professor Philip Zimbardo, a psychology professor at Stanford University, whose 1971 experiment was featured in the ethics stand-down. Zimbardo set up a mock prison scenario with 18 young men split up between guards and prisoners. Just into the second day, guards started to take advantage of their power and abuse the prisoners. Six days and one nervous break-down later, Zimbardo stopped the scheduled two-week experiment before someone was hurt. ats what sets Marines apart, the American public expects more from Marines, said Charron, in response to Zimbardos experiment. When Charron asked the Marines what they took from the PME, 1st Sgt. Ar thur Hernandez said, Al ways know who you are, where you are and what your responsibilities are. For military personnel or civilians, ethics can be as important as saving hundreds of lives, or as little as returning extra change given by a cashier.

For the next few weeks, Im suspending my quest for deep answers to penetrating questions onboard NSB Kings Bay to share a little military history with you. Initially, I was going to combine the three branches we find at Kings Bay Navy, Marines and Coast Guard but there are so many great quotes that I decided to split them into a three-part series. This week, we start with the Navy, which is steeped in traditionally great sayings. Five of these are etched on the Navy Memorial. Capt. John Paul Jones 1747-1742 Bonhomme Richard vs. HMS Serapis American Revolution I have not yet begun to fight. Adm. David Farragut 1801-1870 Battle of Mobile Bay American Civil War Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead. Chaplain Lt. Howell Forgey 1908-1974 Pearl Harbor World War II Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. Adm. George Dewey 1837-1917 Battle of Manila Bay Spanish-American War You may fire when you are ready, Gridley. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry 1785-1819 Battle of Lake Erie War of 1813 We have met the enemy, and they are ours. Capt. James Lawrence 1781-1813 U.S. Frigate Chesapeake vs. HMS Shannon War of 1812 Tell the men to fire faster. Dont give up the ship. Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho History Run for the Fallen e chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta arrived at Bagram, Afghanistan Aug. 19 for consultations with coalition and Afghan leaders. Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said he tries to come to Afghanistan every 60 to 90 days to hold face-to-face meetings with leaders. e chairman spoke to reporters traveling with him aboard his C-17. During this visit, Dempsey will hold meetings at the highest coalition levels Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO forces here, and Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, commander of U.S. Central Command. e chairman also will hold meetings with his counterpart, Afghan Army Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi. e coalition leaders will discuss the problem of insider attacks, where members of the Afghan forces turn their weapons on coalition personnel. ere have been 40 such insider attacks, and 23 Americans have been killed. e most recent was Aug. 19 in southern Afghanistan. Dempsey said he was pleased that Afghan President Hamid Karzai strongly spoke out against these attacks. e president speaking on it was tremendously important, and I hope it permeates to the lowest levels of the Afghan government and military, he said. We speak out about it, and we take measures to mitigate the risk. But the more Afghan leaders speak out about this, the better o we will be, Dempsey said.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 23, 2012 13 USS Constitution departed her berth from Charlestown, Mass. Aug. 19, to set sail for the rst time since 1997, during an underway demonstration commemorating Guerriere Day. e underway honored the 200th anniversary of Constitutions decisive victory over the HMS Guerriere during the War of 1812, marking the rst time a United States frigate defeated a Royal Navy frigate at or nearly equal size. Its also the battle in which Constitution earned her famous nickname Old Ironsides. I cannot think of a better way to honor those who fought in the war as well as celebrate Constitutions successes during the War of 1812 than for the ship to be under sail, said Cmdr. Matt Bonner, Constitutions 72nd commanding ocer. e event also ties our past and present by having the ship not only crewed by the outstanding young men and women who make up her crew, but also the 150 chief petty ocer [CPO] selectees who join us for their Heritage Week. More than 150 CPO selectees and CPO mentor chiefs assisted Constitutions crew in setting sails. CPO selectees participated in Constitutions annual CPO Heritage Weeks, a weeklong training cycle divided by two weeks that teaches selectees timehonored maritime evolutions, such as gun drills, line handling and setting sails. e training also is designed to instill pride in naval heritage in the Navys senior enlisted leadership. Im a boatswains mate, said Chief (Select) Boatswains Mate Michael Zgoda, assigned to USS Ingraham (FFG 61). is is the foundation of my rate. Being able to learn from a variety of genuine chiefs and their dierent perspectives on leadership is overwhelming and important to the chief petty ocer transition. Im extremely honored to be a part of the group that can say they sailed the USS Constitution. e ship got underway at 9:57 a.m. with tugs attached to her sides and 285 people on board, including special guests, such as the 58th, 59th, 62nd and 65th former commanding ocers of Constitution; Rear Adm. Richard Breckenridge, Commander, Submarine Group Two; Rear Adm. Ted Branch, Commander, Naval Air Forces Atlantic; Vice Adm. William French, Commander, Navy Installations Command; retired Navy Capt. omas Hudner Jr., Medal of Honor recipient; and Dr. Phil Budden, Britains Consul General to New England. At 10:27 a.m., Budden and Bonner tossed a wreath into the ocean to honor and remember Constitutions battle with the HMS Guerriere. When the ship arrived at President Roads, a body of water of Boston Harbor, the crew then set three sails from Constitutions main, mizzen and fore masts, and at 12:25 p.m., she detached from her tugs and sailed west under her own power for 17 minutes. She sailed at a maximum speed of 3.1 knots, at an average of two knots, and at a distance of 1,100 yards. As the ships sail master, I felt a combination of pride and relief that the hundreds of man hours of training and planning over the past year all came together, and we were able to accomplish this goal, said Boatswains Mate 1st Class Conrad Hunt. Im really proud that I can say I was a part of this historic occasion. After tugs reattached to Constitutions sides, the ship headed to Fort Independence on Castle Island, where thousands of spectators waited to watch Constitution re a 21-gun salute toward the fort at 1:14 p.m. Fort Independence is a state park that served as a defense post for Boston Harbor at one time. Finally, the ship returned to her pier at 2:05 p.m. and everyone departed once the brow was safely set and the ship was clean. Constitution reopened to the public for tours of the ships history at 4 p.m. For me, this underway is representative of an incredible amount of work and dedication by not only the crew, but Maintenance and Repair Facility, Naval History and Heritage Command, and all of the partners coming together to make this happen, said Aircrew Survival Equipmentman 1st Class Jason Keith, who is the longest serving crew member currently assigned to Constitution. Keith reported to the ship April 13, 2009 and will depart Aug. 31. Ive given tours to thousands of people, shined brass for hundreds of hours, and Ive climbed the rigging to set and furl these sails over and over again. But sailing USS Constitution on Aug. 19, 2012 is one of the greatest honors Ive had in my naval career, and Im truly proud to be a part of this history. e last time Constitution sailed under her own power was July 21, 1997 to honor the ships 200th birthday. It was the rst time the ship sailed in 116 years. When we sailed the ship, it became clear it was a dierent experience you cant have in port, said Lance Beebe, a crew member aboard Constitutions 1997 sail. e ship comes alive, and you truly understand what she is all about. is new crew [2012 Sailors] just joined a group of crew members [1997 Sailors] that also got to experience Constitution under sail, and they became a signicant part of her history as a result. USS Constitution hosted the unveiling of the United States Postal Service Forever stamp to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 from the ships berth in Charlestown, Mass., Aug. 18. e ceremony also commemorated the ships historic battle and victory over the HMS Guerriere that took place Aug. 19, 1812, and earned Constitution the nickname Old Ironsides. It is such an honor for Constitution to be immortalized on a Forever stamp, said Cmdr. Matthew Bonner, Constitutions 72nd commanding ocer. And there is no better time than during the bicentennial of the War of 1812 during which Constitution and the Navy played such a pivotal role. Bostons Postmaster James Holland kicked o the unveiling pier-side to Constitution with more than 200 invited guests, avid stamp collectors and public visitors in attendance. After the ceremony, the USPS also sold Forever stamps at National Park Services Charlestown Navy Yard. Twentyve million stamps will be available for purchase at the USPS Web site, phone center and at post oces. is is the third time USS Constitution has been part of our stamp program, said Maureen Marion, USPS, manager of corporate communication. e rst stamp was a three-cent First Class stamp issued in 1947, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Constitutions launch, and the second was a sixcent non-prot stamped envelope issued in 1985. Old Ironsides underway, rst time since New stamp issued
