Make sure reghters can nd you NSB Fire Department Career development boards are a critical tool leaders can use to help Sailors zero in on excellence, said Master Chief Petty Ocer of the Navy Mike Stevens during a visit to Millington, Tenn., Feb. 25. My Zeroing in on Excellence initiative focuses on three areas; de veloping leaders, good order and discipline, and controlling what we own. CDBs are an excellent oppor tunity for Sailors to receive person alized mentorship and career guid ance from their already experienced leadership, Stevens said. It is also an opportune time for Sailors to take control of what they own by setting personal goals to make plans for any future educational training and de velopment. During a board, the career devel opment team reviews watchstand ing qualications, continued educa tion goals, advancement, shortand long-term career objectives, Fleet Ride-Perform-to-Serve milestones, rating manning and Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery scores with the Sailor. e career development program is designed to improve the ability of Sailors to achieve their professional goals and positively impact their desire to remain on active duty or tran sition to the Navy Reserve. Feedback from the Fleet indicates Sailors like the formal career coun seling from experienced leaders. Leaders use CDBs to discuss the priorities of the Sailor and align them with the needs of the Navy. CDBs are very informative and helpful. ey give me options, and an idea of what the best moves are to keep my career going in the right direction, said Quartermaster 2nd Class Dionna Stephens, assigned to Naval Station Everett. In some cases, CDBs may be the only times a Sailors gets an opportu nity to ask and receive career guid ance from a panel of experts. CDBs help me accomplish my goals by showing me an example of someone who has already achieved their own goals. By talking to a se nior Sailor about my career, I can take advantage of their lifetime of experience and wisdom, and use it in accomplishing the goals in my own life, said Yeoman 3rd Class Jus tin Angelakis assigned to Naval Sta tion Everett. e CDBs are scheduled by the command career counselor, but the command master chief is overall re sponsible for the program. CDB minutes should be routed up the chain of command to the com manding ocer with a copy provided to the Sailor and board members and a copy retained in CMC les. Career counselors are required to log the information in Career Infor mation Management System. Active involvement of the chain of command is the key element to a successful career development program, Stevens said. e involve ment keeps the current and future commands informed of the Sailors progress and career goals. CIMS is available to all shore com mands with Internet access and on board 150 ships using CIMS Aoat on the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel server. CDBs are required for all Sailors upon reporting to a command, after six months on board, at 12-months on board and at 12-month intervals thereafter. Ocial guidance is contained in OPNAVINST 1040.11C. When the Sailors career desires are recorded in CIMS it becomes part of a permanent record that can follow the Sailor throughout his or her career.Charting your course to success Career Development e Chief of Naval Personnel joined personnel chiefs from the other services and Department of Defense civilian leadership March 13 in testifying before the House Armed Services Committee on the impacts of the current budget environment on military personnel and family related programs. Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk discussed how the current budget environment is having signicant impacts on Sailors and civilians, to include the potential furlough in April and evaluation the Navys ability to sustain the tuition assis tance program as it currently ex ists. e situation has caused adjust ments in deployment schedules, resulting in uncertainty and dis ruption in the lives of many Navy families. e furlough of the nearly 186,000 civilians and the atten dant 20 percent pay reduction will signicantly aect them and their families. e absence of this highly skilled workforce impacts our ability to sustain critical family support programs and operate our educational institutions and learning centers; the hiring freeze and release of over 650 temporary workers aggravates the situation, Van Buskirk said. He joined the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Jessica Wright; Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Aairs Dr. Jonathan Woodson; Marine Corps Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Aairs Lt. Gen. Robert E. Milstead; Air Force Deputy Chief of Sta for Manpower, Personnel and Services Lt. Gen. Darrell D. Jones; and Army Deputy Chief of Sta for Personnel Lt. Gen. How ard B. Bromberg. While much of the testimony to the key military committee focused on negative budget im pacts, Van Buskirk did point out the Navy is committed to keeping its covenant with Sailors and their families. As we go forward, to the maxi mum extent possible, we will minimize impacts on family and Sailor readiness programs. We re main determined to avoid adverse impacts in programs that address sexual assault prevention, alcohol awareness and deglamorization, drug detection and abuse preven tion, Navy Safe Harbor wounded warrior support, suicide preven tion and resiliency, casualty as sistance and funeral support; and child care, said Van Buskirk. Navy suspends transition programFrom Navy Personnel Command Public AffairsThe Navy announced suspension of the Early Career Transition Program (ECTP) in a Navy message released March 14. According to NAVADMIN 063/13 Navy Personnel Command (NPC) will no longer accept requests to transition to the Select ed Reserve under this program. Requests submitted and received at NPC prior to March 14 will be accepted and processed. Requests received after March 14 will be returned without action. Previously ap proved requests are unaffected. Established in 2011, ECTP allowed ac tive duty and Full Time Support (FTS) Sail ors with at least two, but less than 16 years of service to leave active duty and afliate with the Selected Reserve to nish out the remainder of their Navy contract. It provided Sailors an early transition opportunity to continue their Naval ser vice and pursue educational or personal goals at a time when the Navy was expe riencing record high retention and low at trition. When the program was activated, active duty Navy had 35 overmanned ratings while the Selected Reserve had 22 undermanned ratings, so the ECTP helped reduce overmanning in the active component while lling the Selected Re serve ranks with highly trained and qualied Sailors.Budget impacts relayed to Congress Personnel Command 2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013

National Childrens Dental Health Month is celebrated each year to raise awareness about oral health. Starting good habits at a young age, along with regular dental visits, will help children develop lifelong healthy teeth and gums. Tooth decay is the single most common childhood disease, ac cording to the U.S. Surgeon General. e American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and caregivers to Get it Done in Year One. Visiting a pediatric dentist by the time the rst baby tooth appears enables the child to begin a lifetime of preventive dental care. In fact, studies show that dental costs for children who have their rst dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the rst ve years than for those who dont see a dentist before their rst birthday. Baby teeth are vulnerable to tooth decay from their very rst appear ance at age six to 12 months, on average. For healthy smiles, dental care must be established both in the dentists chair and at home. e AAPD recommends that par ents clean their infants mouth and gums regularly with a soft infant toothbrush or a cloth and water, and brush baby teeth at least twice a day with a toothbrush made for small children using a smear of uori dated toothpaste. In addition, children older than six months need uoride supple ments if their drinking water doesnt contain enough uoride. Fluoride supplementation in infants has been shown to reduce tooth decay by as much as 50 percent. And by age 12 to 14 months, babies should be weaned from the bottle.

Although women have always volunteered in de fense of our nation, many of their contributions have been forgotten and are not recorded in todays history books, the Web site notes. A signature feature of the museum is the Register, a computerized da tabase of information on about 3,500 former mili tary and current activeduty women who volun tarily registered. Each entry shows the service womans picture, dates of service, awards received, key memories of her service and other sta tistics. e foundation registry invites veterans, activeduty, National Guard and Reserve servicewomen to register. Cadet nurses and ser vice organization employees who served overseas during a war also are eli gible to register. e museums Hall of Honor pays tribute to fallen servicewomen in a somber room amid ags of U.S. states, territories and the military services. A small exhibit displays two books of female casu alties while serving in the line of duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. e hall also honors women who served with particular sacrice and achievement. Honored are those who were killed in action, died in the line of duty, were prisoners of war or were recipients of the nations highest awards for service and bravery, a description reads. A marble Sister Block, taken from the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arling ton National Cemetery, stands formidably tall and wide, nearly ceiling-high in the room. Exhibits titled, Serving in the Military, from 1901 to 1945 and another Since 1946, comprise the work of early servicewomen. e exhibits include World War II dog tags, identication cards, worn photographs and various service manuals.Childrens dental health essential Photos on Page 4is a two-week course designed for Sailors who are at-risk for not completing their enlistment to help them build life skills to make better decisions in their personal and profes sional lives.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013 5 During a series of high-level meetings in Seoul, South Korea, Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter met with members of South Korean President Park Geunhyes new administration, and with U.S. military and diplomatic ocials. Carter had an excellent round of con sultations with senior members of Parks new team, he told reporters during a brieng March 18, and in each meeting reconrmed a steadfast commitment to the nearly 60-year-old alliance between the United States and South Korea. Its safe to report that the relationship between the Park and Obama adminis trations is o to a very productive start, he said. My visit reects the importance [Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel] and I attach to this alliance. Park, South Koreas rst woman presi dent, was sworn in Feb. 25, less than two weeks after North Korean state media an nounced that the nation had conducted its third underground nuclear test since 2006. is and other provocations that are part of a continuing North Korean pattern were key topics in discussions to day, Carter said, adding that such actions pose a serious threat to the United States, to South Korea and to regional stability. If the North Koreans think this kind of thing is going to get them anywhere, theyre mistaken, the deputy secretary said. e only eect its having is to bring down upon North Korea the opprobrium of the entire world. e United States is working with friends and allies around the world to employ an integrated response to these unacceptable provocations, Carter add ed. e response includes United Nations Security Council resolutions with un precedentedly strong sanctions against North Korea, and more unilateral sanc tions of great eect, and the nations re sulting progressive isolation, he said. In the military sphere, the United States remains steadfast in its defense commitments to the Republic of Korea, the deputy defense secretary observed. Together, we are taking important steps to advance the alliance military capabilities. In particular, the United States remains committed to extended deterrence of fered by the U.S. nuclear umbrella, and to ensuring that all capabilities remain available to the alliance, he added. For example, Carter noted the routine presence of strategic bombers taking part in ight training on the Korean Peninsula, adding that a B-52 ight will take place tomorrow. B-52s are long-range, strategic heavy bombers that can drop or launch the widest array of weapons in the U.S. inventory. As Hagel announced March 15, the United States will strengthen its mis sile defenses and is determined to keep ahead of the progress of North Korean in tercontinental ballistic missile develop ment, the deputy defense secretary said. e annual U.S.-South Korean mili tary exercises Key Resolve, ongoing until March 21, and Foal Eagle, a combined and joint eld training exercise that runs across the Korean Peninsula from March 1 to April 30, demonstrate the U.S. com mitment to the alliance, Carter said, and ensure the readiness of both of our forces to defend the Republic of Korea and deepen interoperability with U.S. and South Korean forces. On this cool, hazy Monday morning in Seoul, Carter started his day with a visit to Army Gen. James D. urman, com mander of U.S. Forces Korea. Afterward, he met with U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Sung Kim. Carter then visited the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Aairs and Trade to meet with Minister Yun Byung-se. e U.S. commitment to South Korea is very strong, Carter told Yun in remarks before the meeting. Our capabilities are very formidable -yours, ours and ours combined, Carter said, clasping his hands together in il lustration. And as you know, he added, the Tennessee blue crew at the time-honored ceremony Moyes, a 1992 graduate from the University of Connecticut, as usual, kept his comments brief. Before I can thank anyone here today, I have to thank my crew, Moyes said. eir hard work and professionalism is the only reason why my tour as the commanding ocer was a suc cess. Weve come a long way from when I rst reported to the command three years ago while in the Norfolk shipyard. I had never been in the shipyard and didnt know what to expect as we prepared to come out with no one on the crew qualied for an underway watch. Everybody expects the crew to nd a way to just make it all come together and they truly stepped up to the challenge and proved to me that they were capable of far greater accomplishments. I cant thank all of you enough for your work. Moyes was awarded his sec ond Meritorious Service Medal at the ceremony. Howrey, a Duluth, Minnesota native, earned his commission in 1994 after graduating from Iowa State University. He has served aboard USS Georgia (SSBN 729) (Blue), the Naval Reserve Ocer Train ing Corps Unit at University of Colorado, USS Olympia (SSN 717), two tours aboard USS To peka (SSN 754), U.S. Central Command, Combined Joint In teragency Task Force 435 in Af ghanistan and, most recently, the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C.

Last year, 95 out of 100 college basketball fans knew, just knew, that Kentucky was going to win the NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament. This year, even the so-called experts dont know and say as many as 20 teams have a chance. The wide-open field makes this tournament one of the most interesting in years, and TV ratings should be high. The last regu lar season Associated Press poll had Gonzaga ranked No. 1 and Memphis No. 20. I really dont like either of them to win it all. But, what do I know?

President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor posthu mously to an Army chaplain for conspicuous gal lantry during the Korean War, White House ocials announced March 11. e ceremony will take place April 11 at the White House. Chaplain (Capt.) Emil J. Kapaun served with the 1st Cavalry Divisions 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, during com bat operations against an armed enemy at Unsan, Korea, Nov. 1 and 2, 1950. When Chinese communist forces viciously at tacked friendly ele ments, Kapaun calmly walked through wither ing enemy re to provide comfort and medical aid to his com rades. When they found them selves surrounded by the enemy, the able-bodied men were ordered to evacuate. Kapaun, fully aware of his certain capture, elect ed to stay behind with the wounded. As handto-hand combat ensued, he continued to make rounds. As enemy forces approached the American position, Kapaun noticed an injured Chinese ocer among the wounded and convinced him to negotiate the safe surrender of the American forces. Shortly after his capture, he pushed aside an enemy soldier preparing to ex ecute a comrade. e chaplain, a Roman Catholic priest, died May 23, 1951, at a prison camp in Pyoktong, Korea. His nephew, Ray Ka paun, and family mem bers will be on hand for the ceremony. Chaplain earns top honor Sneaker waves killers Shortly after the 2012 anksgiving holiday, a family and their dog were walking along Big Lagoon Beach near Eureka, Calif., when a wave suddenly swept their dog out to sea. e 16-year-old son sent went into the break ing surf to attempt to res cue the dog, and when it became apparent that he was struggling, both of his parents rushed into the water to save him. e dog made it safely back to shore unharmed. e mother, father and their son did not. A month later, on New Years Day, a Bay Area man died attempting to save his wife and dog from the surf at the Point Reyes National Seashore. Two weeks later a 32year old woman was walk ing her dog along the coast at Shelter Cover, Calif., when a wave carried her out to sea. Winter is a dangerous time to be on the beaches of Northern California, or the East Coast. Every year, people and their pets fall victim to sneaker waves. A sneaker wave is a large wave in a series of coastal waves. ey frequently catch beachgoers, dog walkers and dogs o guard and wash them out to sea. At least seven people have died in Northern Cal ifornia since 2008 while attempting to rescue their dogs from the ocean. In all but one case, the dogs made it safely back to shore and without any hu man intervention. We love our dogs and will do anything to save them, but we must guard against the instinct to jump into the surf, said Allison Lindquist, executive director of the East Bay Society for the Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals. e simple truth is that most dogs are better swimmers than their twolegged masters. Army veterinarian Capt. Lynn Miller said, Com pared to their human counterparts, many dog breeds have a compact center of mass in relation to their long limbs and an elevated head and neck, which makes them good swimmers in calm water. If you take your fourlegged buddy to the beach, you must keep a few safety tips in mind. Dogs that weigh less than 40 pounds should not be allowed to run o leash near the surf. Even the ttest canine athlete isnt made for pounding surf, and dogs should be discouraged from going near rough water and rocky areas, Miller said. Remember, a small wave that comes up to your dogs elbow is the equivalent of a bigger wave that comes up to a humans knee. She also advises not to throw toys into active waves, as some dogs can become so focused on a ball or Fris bee that they will miss haz ards under the water. If your dog is swept away, give him or her opportunity to swim back to shore. Dogs are far better equipped to go with the ow and get themselves to shore than are humans, Lindquist said. Should your dog end up in the surf or rip current, stay safely on the shore. Lindquist said dog own ers should, Be aware that the current may move the dog down the beach, and they may come ashore a distance from where you are located. 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013

Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow of fers myriad opportunities for Marines and civilian employees looking to get in shape. Whether its for combat readiness or simply looking good for this upcoming summer, a great physique is just steps away. Exercise and eating right helps Lance Cpl. Luis Castro, an administrative clerk here, with a rst class physical and com bat tness test score, in pinnacle shape. I train my body through resistance training, cardio and eating as healthy as I can, Castro said. Castro can do 40 pull-ups, twice the amount required for a perfect PFT score. He tells anyone who desires to do more pull-ups the same thing to simply do more pull-ups. Castro encourages Marines to do pyramids (Do a set of ten pullups followed by ten pushups. Do ten sets of each exercise, decreasing the total repetitions by one each time.) to increase their maximum pull-up repetition. He also often does a max set of pull-ups followed by a max set of dips without resting. He will continue doing this until his muscles fatigue. Castro currently is striving toward a 300 PFT, a perfect score. I want to get a lot faster so Ive been focusing more on cardio and endurance training than I normally would, the Puerto Rico native said. I want to get my three-mile run time under 18 minutes in order to achieve a perfect score. My motivation is my competitive edge. Marines are naturally competitive so you always have to strive to be the best in order to stay ahead of the game. When the gym is closed, or when he gets tired of his regular workout, Castro explained that he often uses YouTube and imitates other peoples workouts. Mike Chang, the lead trainer for Six Pack Shortcuts, for example, oers many benecial health tips and workouts. One of Castros favorites is Mike Changs High Intensity Muscle Building Workout, as follows: A set of pushups until muscle fatigue Bent over rows (10 reps) Military press (10 reps) Barbell squats (10 reps) Barbell lunges (10 reps each leg) Barbell curls (10 reps) Triceps extensions (10 reps) Perform four sets in this order, only resting in between sets (not exercises.) No matter how much you work out, a major part of being in good shape is your diet and eating habits. Being seconds away from nothing but fast food restaurants may pose a challenge to some. Instead of going o base, the Family Restaurants healthy alternatives should be utilized. e restaurant oers tuna salad, sh, chef salad, a grilled chicken sandwich, and a salad bar, said Diane Yslas, the res taurants supervisor. Also, the grilled chicken may be or dered by itself and added to the salad bar. e salad bar includes vegetables and protein, such as hard boiled eggs, turkey, and ham, breakfast is no dierent, plain scrambled eggs, egg whites, oatmeal and substituting tomatoes for hash browns are just some of the healthy choices.Marines loving their PT

My Zeroing in on Excellence initiative focuses on three areas; developing leaders, good order and discipline, and controlling what we own. CDBs are an excellent opportunity for Sailors to receive personalized mentorship and career guidance from their already experienced leadership, Stevens said. It is also an opportune time for Sailors to take control of what they own by setting personal goals to make plans for any future educational training and development. During a board, the career development team reviews watchstanding qualications, continued education goals, advancement, shortand long-term career objectives, Fleet Ride-Perform-to-Serve milestones, rating manning and Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery scores with the Sailor. e career development program is designed to improve the ability of Sailors to achieve their professional goals and positively impact their desire to remain on active duty or transition to the Navy Reserve. Feedback from the Fleet indicates Sailors like the formal career counseling from experienced leaders. Leaders use CDBs to discuss the priorities of the Sailor and align them with the needs of the Navy. CDBs are very informative and helpful. ey give me options, and an idea of what the best moves are to keep my career going in the right direction, said Quartermaster 2nd Class Dionna Stephens, assigned to Naval Station Everett. In some cases, CDBs may be the only times a Sailors gets an opportunity to ask and receive career guidance from a panel of experts. CDBs help me accomplish my goals by showing me an example of someone who has already achieved their own goals. By talking to a senior Sailor about my career, I can take advantage of their lifetime of experience and wisdom, and use it in accomplishing the goals in my own life, said Yeoman 3rd Class Justin Angelakis assigned to Naval Station Everett. e CDBs are scheduled by the command career counselor, but the command master chief is overall responsible for the program. CDB minutes should be routed up the chain of command to the commanding ocer with a copy provided to the Sailor and board members and a copy retained in CMC les. Career counselors are required to log the information in Career Information Management System. Active involvement of the chain of command is the key element to a successful career development program, Stevens said. e involvement keeps the current and future commands informed of the Sailors progress and career goals. CIMS is available to all shore commands with Internet access and on board 150 ships using CIMS Aoat on the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel server. CDBs are required for all Sailors upon reporting to a command, after six months on board, at 12-months on board and at 12-month intervals thereafter. Ocial guidance is contained in OPNAVINST 1040.11C. When the Sailors career desires are recorded in CIMS it becomes part of a permanent record that can follow the Sailor throughout his or her career.Charting your course to success Career Development e Chief of Naval Personnel joined personnel chiefs from the other services and Department of Defense civilian leadership March 13 in testifying before the House Armed Services Committee on the impacts of the current budget environment on military personnel and family related programs. Vice Adm. Scott Van Buskirk discussed how the current budget environment is having signicant impacts on Sailors and civilians, to include the potential furlough in April and evaluation the Navys ability to sustain the tuition assistance program as it currently exists. e situation has caused adjustments in deployment schedules, resulting in uncertainty and disruption in the lives of many Navy families. e furlough of the nearly 186,000 civilians and the attendant 20 percent pay reduction will signicantly aect them and their families. e absence of this highly skilled workforce impacts our ability to sustain critical family support programs and operate our educational institutions and learning centers; the hiring freeze and release of over 650 temporary workers aggravates the situation, Van Buskirk said. He joined the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Jessica Wright; Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Aairs Dr. Jonathan Woodson; Marine Corps Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Aairs Lt. Gen. Robert E. Milstead; Air Force Deputy Chief of Sta for Manpower, Personnel and Services Lt. Gen. Darrell D. Jones; and Army Deputy Chief of Sta for Personnel Lt. Gen. Howard B. Bromberg. While much of the testimony to the key military committee focused on negative budget impacts, Van Buskirk did point out the Navy is committed to keeping its covenant with Sailors and their families. As we go forward, to the maximum extent possible, we will minimize impacts on family and Sailor readiness programs. We remain determined to avoid adverse impacts in programs that address sexual assault prevention, alcohol awareness and deglamorization, drug detection and abuse prevention, Navy Safe Harbor wounded warrior support, suicide prevention and resiliency, casualty assistance and funeral support; and child care, said Van Buskirk. Navy suspends transition programFrom Navy Personnel Command Public AffairsThe Navy announced suspension of the Early Career Transition Program (ECTP) in a Navy message released March 14. According to NAVADMIN 063/13 Navy Personnel Command (NPC) will no longer accept requests to transition to the Select ed Reserve under this program. Requests submitted and received at NPC prior to March 14 will be accepted and processed. Requests received after March 14 will be returned without action. Previously ap proved requests are unaffected. Established in 2011, ECTP allowed ac tive duty and Full Time Support (FTS) Sail ors with at least two, but less than 16 years of service to leave active duty and afliate with the Selected Reserve to nish out the remainder of their Navy contract. It provided Sailors an early transition opportunity to continue their Naval service and pursue educational or personal goals at a time when the Navy was experiencing record high retention and low attrition. When the program was activated, active duty Navy had 35 overmanned ratings while the Selected Reserve had 22 undermanned ratings, so the ECTP helped reduce overmanning in the active component while lling the Selected Reserve ranks with highly trained and qualied Sailors.Budget impacts relayed to Congress Personnel Command 2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013

National Childrens Dental Health Month is celebrated each year to raise awareness about oral health. Starting good habits at a young age, along with regular dental visits, will help children develop lifelong healthy teeth and gums. Tooth decay is the single most common childhood disease, according to the U.S. Surgeon General. e American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and caregivers to Get it Done in Year One. Visiting a pediatric dentist by the time the rst baby tooth appears enables the child to begin a lifetime of preventive dental care. In fact, studies show that dental costs for children who have their rst dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the rst ve years than for those who dont see a dentist before their rst birthday. Baby teeth are vulnerable to tooth decay from their very rst appearance at age six to 12 months, on average. For healthy smiles, dental care must be established both in the dentists chair and at home. e AAPD recommends that parents clean their infants mouth and gums regularly with a soft infant toothbrush or a cloth and water, and brush baby teeth at least twice a day with a toothbrush made for small children using a smear of uoridated toothpaste. In addition, children older than six months need uoride supplements if their drinking water doesnt contain enough uoride. Fluoride supplementation in infants has been shown to reduce tooth decay by as much as 50 percent. And by age 12 to 14 months, babies should be weaned from the bottle.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013 5 During a series of high-level meetings in Seoul, South Korea, Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter met with members of South Korean President Park Geunhyes new administration, and with U.S. military and diplomatic ocials. Carter had an excellent round of consultations with senior members of Parks new team, he told reporters during a brieng March 18, and in each meeting reconrmed a steadfast commitment to the nearly 60-year-old alliance between the United States and South Korea. Its safe to report that the relationship between the Park and Obama administrations is o to a very productive start, he said. My visit reects the importance [Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel] and I attach to this alliance. Park, South Koreas rst woman president, was sworn in Feb. 25, less than two weeks after North Korean state media announced that the nation had conducted its third underground nuclear test since 2006. is and other provocations that are part of a continuing North Korean pattern were key topics in discussions today, Carter said, adding that such actions pose a serious threat to the United States, to South Korea and to regional stability. If the North Koreans think this kind of thing is going to get them anywhere, theyre mistaken, the deputy secretary said. e only eect its having is to bring down upon North Korea the opprobrium of the entire world. e United States is working with friends and allies around the world to employ an integrated response to these unacceptable provocations, Carter added. e response includes United Nations Security Council resolutions with unprecedentedly strong sanctions against North Korea, and more unilateral sanctions of great eect, and the nations resulting progressive isolation, he said. In the military sphere, the United States remains steadfast in its defense commitments to the Republic of Korea, the deputy defense secretary observed. Together, we are taking important steps to advance the alliance military capabilities. In particular, the United States remains committed to extended deterrence offered by the U.S. nuclear umbrella, and to ensuring that all capabilities remain available to the alliance, he added. For example, Carter noted the routine presence of strategic bombers taking part in ight training on the Korean Peninsula, adding that a B-52 ight will take place tomorrow. B-52s are long-range, strategic heavy bombers that can drop or launch the widest array of weapons in the U.S. inventory. As Hagel announced March 15, the United States will strengthen its missile defenses and is determined to keep ahead of the progress of North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile development, the deputy defense secretary said. e annual U.S.-South Korean military exercises Key Resolve, ongoing until March 21, and Foal Eagle, a combined and joint eld training exercise that runs across the Korean Peninsula from March 1 to April 30, demonstrate the U.S. commitment to the alliance, Carter said, and ensure the readiness of both of our forces to defend the Republic of Korea and deepen interoperability with U.S. and South Korean forces. On this cool, hazy Monday morning in Seoul, Carter started his day with a visit to Army Gen. James D. urman, commander of U.S. Forces Korea. Afterward, he met with U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Sung Kim. Carter then visited the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Aairs and Trade to meet with Minister Yun Byung-se. e U.S. commitment to South Korea is very strong, Carter told Yun in remarks before the meeting. Our capabilities are very formidable -yours, ours and ours combined, Carter said, clasping his hands together in illustration. And as you know, he added, the Tennessee blue crew at the time-honored ceremony Moyes, a 1992 graduate from the University of Connecticut, as usual, kept his comments brief. Before I can thank anyone here today, I have to thank my crew, Moyes said. eir hard work and professionalism is the only reason why my tour as the commanding ocer was a success. Weve come a long way from when I rst reported to the command three years ago while in the Norfolk shipyard. I had never been in the shipyard and didnt know what to expect as we prepared to come out with no one on the crew qualied for an underway watch. Everybody expects the crew to nd a way to just make it all come together and they truly stepped up to the challenge and proved to me that they were capable of far greater accomplishments. I cant thank all of you enough for your work. Moyes was awarded his second Meritorious Service Medal at the ceremony. Howrey, a Duluth, Minnesota native, earned his commission in 1994 after graduating from Iowa State University. He has served aboard USS Georgia (SSBN 729) (Blue), the Naval Reserve Ocer Training Corps Unit at University of Colorado, USS Olympia (SSN 717), two tours aboard USS Topeka (SSN 754), U.S. Central Command, Combined Joint Interagency Task Force 435 in Afghanistan and, most recently, the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C.

President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor posthumously to an Army chaplain for conspicuous gallantry during the Korean War, White House ocials announced March 11. e ceremony will take place April 11 at the White House. Chaplain (Capt.) Emil J. Kapaun served with the 1st Cavalry Divisions 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, during combat operations against an armed enemy at Unsan, Korea, Nov. 1 and 2, 1950. When Chinese communist forces viciously attacked friendly ele ments, Kapaun calmly walked through wither ing enemy re to provide comfort and medical aid to his comrades. When they found themselves surrounded by the enemy, the able-bodied men were ordered to evacuate. Kapaun, fully aware of his certain capture, elected to stay behind with the wounded. As handto-hand combat ensued, he continued to make rounds. As enemy forces approached the American position, Kapaun noticed an injured Chinese ocer among the wounded and convinced him to negotiate the safe surrender of the American forces. Shortly after his capture, he pushed aside an enemy soldier preparing to execute a comrade. e chaplain, a Roman Catholic priest, died May 23, 1951, at a prison camp in Pyoktong, Korea. His nephew, Ray Kapaun, and family members will be on hand for the ceremony. Chaplain earns top honor Sneaker waves killers Shortly after the 2012 anksgiving holiday, a family and their dog were walking along Big Lagoon Beach near Eureka, Calif., when a wave suddenly swept their dog out to sea. e 16-year-old son sent went into the breaking surf to attempt to rescue the dog, and when it became apparent that he was struggling, both of his parents rushed into the water to save him. e dog made it safely back to shore unharmed. e mother, father and their son did not. A month later, on New Years Day, a Bay Area man died attempting to save his wife and dog from the surf at the Point Reyes National Seashore. Two weeks later a 32year old woman was walk ing her dog along the coast at Shelter Cover, Calif., when a wave carried her out to sea. Winter is a dangerous time to be on the beaches of Northern California, or the East Coast. Every year, people and their pets fall victim to sneaker waves. A sneaker wave is a large wave in a series of coastal waves. ey frequently catch beachgoers, dog walkers and dogs o guard and wash them out to sea. At least seven people have died in Northern California since 2008 while attempting to rescue their dogs from the ocean. In all but one case, the dogs made it safely back to shore and without any human intervention. We love our dogs and will do anything to save them, but we must guard against the instinct to jump into the surf, said Allison Lindquist, executive director of the East Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. e simple truth is that most dogs are better swimmers than their twolegged masters. Army veterinarian Capt. Lynn Miller said, Compared to their human counterparts, many dog breeds have a compact center of mass in relation to their long limbs and an elevated head and neck, which makes them good swimmers in calm water. If you take your fourlegged buddy to the beach, you must keep a few safety tips in mind. Dogs that weigh less than 40 pounds should not be allowed to run o leash near the surf. Even the ttest canine athlete isnt made for pounding surf, and dogs should be discouraged from going near rough water and rocky areas, Miller said. Remember, a small wave that comes up to your dogs elbow is the equivalent of a bigger wave that comes up to a humans knee. She also advises not to throw toys into active waves, as some dogs can become so focused on a ball or Fris bee that they will miss haz ards under the water. If your dog is swept away, give him or her opportunity to swim back to shore. Dogs are far better equipped to go with the ow and get themselves to shore than are humans, Lindquist said. Should your dog end up in the surf or rip current, stay safely on the shore. Lindquist said dog owners should, Be aware that the current may move the dog down the beach, and they may come ashore a distance from where you are located. 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 21, 2013

Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow of fers myriad opportunities for Marines and civilian employees looking to get in shape. Whether its for combat readiness or simply looking good for this upcoming summer, a great physique is just steps away. Exercise and eating right helps Lance Cpl. Luis Castro, an administrative clerk here, with a rst class physical and combat tness test score, in pinnacle shape. I train my body through resistance training, cardio and eating as healthy as I can, Castro said. Castro can do 40 pull-ups, twice the amount required for a perfect PFT score. He tells anyone who desires to do more pull-ups the same thing to simply do more pull-ups. Castro encourages Marines to do pyramids (Do a set of ten pullups followed by ten pushups. Do ten sets of each exercise, decreasing the total repetitions by one each time.) to increase their maximum pull-up repetition. He also often does a max set of pull-ups followed by a max set of dips without resting. He will continue doing this until his muscles fatigue. Castro currently is striving toward a 300 PFT, a perfect score. I want to get a lot faster so Ive been focusing more on cardio and endurance training than I normally would, the Puerto Rico native said. I want to get my three-mile run time under 18 minutes in order to achieve a perfect score. My motivation is my competitive edge. Marines are naturally competitive so you always have to strive to be the best in order to stay ahead of the game. When the gym is closed, or when he gets tired of his regular workout, Castro explained that he often uses YouTube and imitates other peoples workouts. Mike Chang, the lead trainer for Six Pack Shortcuts, for example, oers many benecial health tips and workouts. One of Castros favorites is Mike Changs High Intensity Muscle Building Workout, as follows: A set of pushups until muscle fatigue Bent over rows (10 reps) Military press (10 reps) Barbell squats (10 reps) Barbell lunges (10 reps each leg) Barbell curls (10 reps) Triceps extensions (10 reps) Perform four sets in this order, only resting in between sets (not exercises.) No matter how much you work out, a major part of being in good shape is your diet and eating habits. Being seconds away from nothing but fast food restaurants may pose a challenge to some. Instead of going o base, the Family Restaurants healthy alternatives should be utilized. e restaurant oers tuna salad, sh, chef salad, a grilled chicken sandwich, and a salad bar, said Diane Yslas, the restaurants supervisor. Also, the grilled chicken may be ordered by itself and added to the salad bar. e salad bar includes vegetables and protein, such as hard boiled eggs, turkey, and ham, breakfast is no dierent, plain scrambled eggs, egg whites, oatmeal and substituting tomatoes for hash browns are just some of the healthy choices.Marines loving their PT
