Drivers must yield to walkers, runners and bicyclists Many of us have heard the joke about the ship and lighthouse. If you havent it goes something like this. rough the pitch-black night the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sends a signal, Change your course 10 degrees east. e light signals back, Change your course 10 degrees west. Angrily the Captain sends, Im a Navy Captain! Change your course sir! e light responds, Im a seaman second class, change your course. Now the Captain is furious, Im a battleship, Im not changing course! ere is one last reply, Im a lighthouse, its your call! at sums up the concern of a Sailor who recently attended the Quality of Life and Health and Wellness Board. He commented how dangerous it is during certain times of the day around intersections for walkers, runners and bicyclists. Drivers are not adhering to the pedestrian crosswalk stop and wait. Georgia Statute 40-6-91. Right of Way in Crosswalks reads: (a) e driver of a vehicle shall stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, or when the pedestrian is approaching and is within one lane of the half of the roadway on which the vehicle is traveling or onto which it is turning. For the purposes of this subsection, half of the roadway means all trac lanes carrying trac in one direction of travel. In other words, its illegal for drivers to squeeze by, drive around or cut o a pedestrian in a crosswalk, even if theres room. Forget yield. Remember to stop. (b) No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impractical for the driver to yield. (c) Subsection (a) of this Code section shall not apply under the conditions stated in subsection (b) of Code Section 406-92. Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right of way to all vehicles upon the roadway if he uses the roadway instead of such tunnel or crossing. (d) Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle. e Readers Digest version? Vehicular trac must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. At the same time, pedestrians cant just step into the road without giving trac a chance to safely stop either. All too often we observe joggers, wrapped up in their music, completely detuned from the rest of the world, run straight Up Periscope A Joe Sabo Classic on a deserted island Page 9 Departing USS Tennessee, Florida head to sea Page 4 Offering help NSB Kings Bay opens CSADD chapter Page 9 Check us out Online! Crosswalk pedestrians have the right-of-way July 3 town hall meeting addresses future changesCommander, Navy Installations Command announced a plan in June to conduct a Reduction in Force action in scal year 2013 that will be completed in 2014. Over the course of the next seven months, CNIC will eliminate 745 civilian positions throughout its shore enterprise in seven Navy regions across 20 states, the District of Columbia, the Island of Guam, and in the countries of Italy, Greece and Cuba. e actual total number of people directly impacted by the RIF action will be determined once other workforce shaping measures such as the Voluntary Separation Incentive Payments, Voluntary Early Retirement Authority and placement into current vacancies have been completed. Over the past year, CNIC has used VSIP, VERA, as well as a civilian hiring freeze to reduce the size of its work force. All of these tools have not reduced personnel costs enough to meet funding shortfalls and as a result, CNIC must conduct a RIF for both FY 13 and FY 14. Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay held a town hall-style meeting July 3 concerning the RIF and how it will aect its civil service employees. CNIC, Adm. French and his sta up in D.C. are the ones who took a look at base installations throughout all regions and gured out appropriate manning levels in order to meet the budget that is being provided for us next year, said Capt. Harvey Guey, commanding ocer of NSB Kings Bay. In order to meet that, we are going to be required to conduct a reduction in force. My goal is to make this as seamless as possible and to keep every Department of Defense civilian assigned here in a position on this base. I will do my best to achieve this goal. My goal is to make this as seamless as possible ... Capt.

It is an unfortunate fact of the modern housing world that homes across the country are going into foreclosure every day. Many of those homes are rental properties, and in many cases the tenant is the last one to know about it. If you rent your home and have come home to a Notice of Sale on your front door, or if youve started receiving court documents in the mail about your home going into foreclosure, this article is for you. Luckily, there are steps you can take to make sure youre protected against your landlords foreclosure, and resources available to assist you and your family. How can I prevent this situation? ere are simple steps you can take to make sure the home youre about to rent is not going into foreclosure. Having this information upfront is one of the things youll want to consider, along with location, price, and whether theres plenty of running space for your pet hedgehog, when you determine which house to rent. e rst and easiest is to ask your landlord whether his home is in foreclosure. Its a simple step to take, but there is no guarantee that your landlord will be honest with you. Many homeowners will avoid giving out that information to their tenants for fear that they (a) wont sign a lease, or (b) will stop paying rent on a lease they already have. Still, it doesnt cost anything to ask, and its an easy early warning system for upcoming foreclosure issues. If your landlord refuses to answer, or if you are still suspicious, you can always check your local newspapers. Foreclosure sales will be listed daily. e downside is that you have to check every listing regularly, and it will only list homes that are just about to be put up for sale. It still wont give you any notice that your landlord might be headed for trouble down the road. e best way to nd out if foreclosure proceedings have been led against your landlord is to call your local Clerk of Court. Foreclosure proceedings are public record, and you will be able to get all the information you need from your local courthouse. Dierent states have dierent procedures for getting access to those les, so make sure you give the courthouse a call. Too late Ive already gotten the notice! If you start getting notications of a pending foreclosure in the mail or on your door, you will have to decide whether you want to terminate your lease early or stick around to the end. Many families want to avoid moving in the middle of a tour, but having a bank as a landlord can be a huge hassle. e bank probably wont care that your plumbing is broken or there are roaches in the home. ey may not x the heating, and they probably wont return your calls about the water heater. Many families decide that its better to just nd a new place to live. Fortunately, the decision is yours to make. Ive decided I want to stay Until recently, a foreclosure nearly always meant that the tenants were about to be evicted. at all changed in 2009, when Congress passed the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. If you dont have a lease, the new homeowner is required to give you 90 days notice before you have to move out. If you do have a lease, the PTFA requires the new homeowner to stick to the terms of that lease, unless the new owner wants to move into the home as their primary residence. Even then, though, the new owner is required to give you 90 days notice before you are required to leave. In order to get the benet of the PTFA, you should le a Notice of Tenancy in the court thats hearing the foreclosure case. is lets the judge know that there is someone living in the property. If you are wondering whether to pay rent to the bank or to your old landlord, you can also le a Motion to Deposit Rent into the Court Registry, which will let you pay rent to the court, who will then gure out where it goes. For assistance in drafting either one of these documents, you should make an appointment with your local Legal Assistance oce. Ive decided I want to move e Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure act does not automatically give you the right to terminate your lease if the property is foreclosed. e good news is that most banks dont want to act as landlords. Some will even oer Cash for Keys programs that will pay you money in exchange for you moving out. e best way to get out of your lease if the home is being foreclosed is to talk to your landlord and the bank. If you do decide to move, the Navy is here to help. In 2008, the Department of the Navy began authorizing funded local moves for military members who are breaking their leases as a result of their landlords foreclosure. You will need to bring a copy of the Notice of Foreclosure and a Notice of Lease Termination to either your commands Sta Judge Advocate or your local Legal Assistance oce. ey will be able to help you get the authorization you need. ats it! Being a tenant in a home thats being foreclosed can be a stressful and confusing situation. If you nd yourself over your head, always feel free to make an appointment with your local Legal Assistance oce. Were here to help!Protect yourself during foreclosure Legal Assistance Naval Hospital Jacksonville its hospital and ve branch health clinics in Albany, Jacksonville, Key West, Kings Bay and Mayport will continue to support the health and well being of its patients throughout Florida and Georgia during the furlough of approximately 660 civilian employees. e furlough will not aect hours of operation at any location. Keeping Sailors and Marines, our nations heroes, healthy and t to ght continues to be our rst priority, said Naval Hospital Jacksonville Commanding Ocer Capt. Gayle Shaer. Like all of Navy Medicine, we will continue to meet our operational requirements in support of our warghters and their families at our hospital and branch health clinics across the region. Because its critical that decreased stang caused by the furloughs not compromise the ability to provide patients with high-quality care, some non-emergency, non-urgent care may be delayed or referred to the TRICARE network. Patients may also experience longer than usual wait times. Other cost-cutting measures already in place include limiting travel, delaying cosmetic facility renovations and non-critical equipment purchases, and eliminating civilian merit pay awards. Additionally, military sta will be redistributed and civilian sta furlough days will be staggered to align with patient care needs. People are our most important asset and we are extremely proud of and highly value the important contributions of our civilian workforce, Shaer said. Its most devastating to all of our civilian employees who are required to stay home in a nonpay status one day a week from July 8 through September 21. It also affects our military sta who will be redistributed throughout our facilities to optimize care delivery as well as our patients who face delays in access to non-emergency, non-urgent care and increased referrals out to the TRICARE network. While our priority to heal our nations heroes remains unchanged and our team of civilian, military and contractor sta at our hospital and branch health clinics will continue to work diligently to provide outstanding care to our patients, the impact of sequestration and work lost due to civilian furloughs will be felt. We ask for understanding during this dicult time that were all in together. All BHC Kings Bay non-emergency needs patients should continue to the Appointment Line (904) 5424677 or (800) 529-4677, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Patients with a referral from their PCM to a specialty clinic at the hospital, call weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For all locations, after-hours nurse advice remains available on evenings, weekends and holidays via its command Appointment Line at (800) 529-4677. Naval Branch Health Clinic Kings Bay is one of Naval Hospital Jacksonvilles six health care facilities located across Florida and Georgia.

Drivers and pedestrians alike, as you approach that intersection take a quick glance to ensure the intersection is clear before you proceed. Trivia fact. Jaywalking is not a legal term and does not appear in the Georgia Code. Even so, people often use jaywalking to describe a pedestrian crossing outside of a crosswalk. In fact, crossing the street outside of a crosswalk is perfectly legal in most places, as long as the pedestrians yield to trac.Crosswalk tion is when and where, said Rear Adm. Jack Scorby, commander, Navy Region Southeast. Whether you have lived through a hurricane or have seen what they can do, we can all agree that its a lot easier to prepare in advance. As we prepare, [we] think about before the storm, during the storm and after the storm. Now, before the storm is the most important. Blackstart, as a before the storm exercise, proved that point. Because of the Blackstart evolution, we know our capabilities and limitations and dont have to speculate, increasing the eectiveness of our planning and decision making, Duddleston said. We know where services work properly and what areas need to be addressed. is data is vital to critically self-assess and use the results of our assessment to better support the submarines mission here.Drill

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 11, 2013 5 Kitchen. At the end of each morning the royal court of princes and princesses was gathered back in the Kingdom Rock castle for a review of the important Bible lessons of the day. ere, the royal subjects, led by Queen Believe or Queen B as she was known to the students, sang songs and ended the day on a high note of Gods love. Being a queen is much harder than I rst imagined, Jeerson said. But what a great time we had this year at Kingdom Rock. is is my sixth year leading VBS here at Kings Bay and I am amazed as I see many of the same students return year after year. When its all said and done, the most important thing is that the children and their families have a memorable rst-hand experience with Gods Word and his people. We were blessed to be able to provide this program for our military families. I am grateful for the seless support from the commands and the community. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work each year with Donna Horn, director of Religious Education and Jackie omas, who has been my VBS sidekick for the last ve years. e children had a great time, and we look forward to doing it again next year. is years Vacation Bible School was a collaborative eort involving the Chapel sta, teen summer hires from the Child and Youth Program, parent volunteers and chapel parishioners.

What would you want on a deserted island?So you are stranded on a deserted island like Tom Hanks in Cast Away. On this island you can take three things. So what do you take? I would take a woman, a Leatherman tool and a lot of dental floss. I thought about this question long and hard, and the reasons that I decided on three choices are as follows: I chose a woman because she has a mind that operates differently than my own. Having a second opinion may save your life. And, it is another set of hands and someone to talk to. I chose a Leatherman tool over a spear or a machete because I wanted a tool to make tools such as a spear or a canoe. Lastly, I chose dental floss because dental care is essential when there is no a dentist for miles around. It also can be used as fishing line. Heres some others answers. Alicia Cardenas Kings Bay Pool Corpus Christi, Texas I would take dental floss, an abundance of water and a first aid kit. MA3 Derek Godwin Marine Security Force Battalion Highland, N.Y. I would take a raft, a long paddle and a map so I can get the heck out of there. Kyle Comer Dependent San Diego I would take a raft, a gun and Gatorade. My plan is to try to escape to land that has people, to eventually make it back home. Tyler Renner Dependent Coral Springs, Fla. A boatload of MREs and How To Survive On An Island For Dummies book. Casey Altizer Kings Bay Pool Kingsland I would take a woman, specifically Megan Fox, a knife to cut or whittle or defend myself, and I would bring a tent for shelter. MM2 Nathaniel Murphy USS Maryland Blairsville, Ga. Beer, cigarettes and Skoal. Justin Camarillo Delayed Entry Program Jacksonville, Fla. I would take my guitar, guitar strings and a spear. As long as I have music, I can survive and be content anywhere. Up eriscope with MC1 Joe Sabo Classic July 16, 2009 e Kings Bay Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions had its rst meeting at the Base Chapel, July 1. During the meeting, MA1 Artis Brown, the senior CSADD sponsor, addressed the purpose of CSADD and what benets the program has to our Navy today. CSADD was founded when Commander Navy Region Mid-Atlantic assembled a group of Sailors to start a Sailors Against Drunk Driving program. e Sailors answered the request with CSADD as a response to the many situations that impact a Sailors future success in their personal and professional life. e dierence between CSADD and other organizations that spread the message about destructive behavior is, we arent just communicating an idea, said MA2 Zachary Goldman, president of CSADD Kings Bay. We are a peer to peer mentorship program aimed at 18 to 25 year olds. We are shaping the current culture of the Navy today. We are the future leaders of the Navy of tomorrow and we are leading the way by not only creatively addressing the hot topics of our military culture, but we are inuencing our peers by acting on our messages of positive behaviors. Sailors from various commands across the Navy continue to practice smarter decisions when it comes to going out and having fun. Active groups such as CSADD continue to encourage this behavior as a means to lowering alcohol related incidents among other challenges Sailors face in todays Navy. CSADD Kings Bay is looking for active participation from E5 and below sailors who are looking to make an impact on their shipmates lives.

Ma rine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. told Penta gon reporters via a phone hook-up from the Afghan capital of Kabul that the nature of the relationship between Afghanistan and NATO has changed. Todays achievement of Milestone 2013 is a longanticipated development, the general said. U.S., NATO and partner nations have carried the security burden in Afghanistan since 2001. Behind that shield, the Afghan government recruited, equipped and trained soldiers and police to take the security responsibility. Afghan forces took the security job in more and more of the country until today, when they assumed the lead for combat operations throughout the country. is is a source of great pride for the Afghan people and the Afghan security forces, and, frankly, its also a great source of pride for members of the coalition, Dunford said. American, NATO and partner nations made this day possible, and wounded warriors from the United States, the United Kingdom and Italy were present as Afghan President Hamid Karzai and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen made the announcement this morning. e change means U.S., NATO and coalition troops are no longer conducting unilateral operations. ere are exceptions, however. NATO-commanded forces do conduct security operations, route clearance operations and operations conducted for retrograde movements, Dunford said. e only operations that are being planned and conducted against the enemy are being conducted with the Afghans in the lead, he said. As we mark Milestone 2013, Im condent in the overall direction of the campaign, Dunford said. I believe the Afghans are, in fact, ready to take the lead right now. I believe theyll be able to run and secure the elections in 2014. And I believe well be ready to eect full transition in December of 2014. Sustaining Afghan progress is the focus now, he said. Command and control, air support, intelligence and equipment and instruction for countering improvised explosive devices are crucial capabilities for the Afghan national security forces. Were working hard to mature the systems, the processes and institutions that are going to allow the Afghans to become fully self-reliant in the days ahead, Dunford said. e key to the future is integrating the capabilities of the Afghan army and police across the spectrum, the general said. e way ahead is charted. rough the end of 2014, coalition forces will continue to work to train, advise and assist Afghan forces. Coalition forces will continue to provide support, including limited medical evacuation for forces and will continue to train and mentor leaders and units. e Afghan military must medevac their wounded using their own assets. e Afghan air force has Mi-17 helicopters and ground evacuation capabilities. e service is getting smaller cargo-style aircraft that could also help transport wounded troops. e Afghan military has paid a price for the security lead. In some weeks, ocials said, Afghan forces lose between 100 and 120 troops, and NATO and Afghan forces are examining the situation. IEDs cause the greatest number of casualties, and Afghan forces are working to use counter-IED equipment and to learn the tactics, techniques and procedures to minimize casualties. Afghan forces take security lead for nation What do you do when your platoon commander is killed? One Marine knows the answer: take charge. Sergeant Gary L. Hill, who completed his service in 1969, recently received the nations third-highest award for doing just that during a ceremony at the Tuscaloosa Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Retired Gen. Charles C. Krulak, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, presented Hill with the Silver Star Medal for his leadership as a junior Marine during the Vietnam War. I only did what I had to do to stay alive, and thats keep moving, Hill said. e Marine Corps raises everybody to be a leader if they need to be. If youre the last man standing youre the leader anyhow. Retired Maj. James M. Burke coordinated the arrival of Krulak and a Marine color guard from the Anti-Terrorism Battalion in nearby Bessemer. ats a hell of an award for a lance corporal, Burke said. I wanted to do what I could to make sure that he received the recognition in the professional manner that he deserves. I have great respect for enlisted Marines that receive high honors because there are so many that never get recognized. Hill was almost one of those Marines until one day at church when a family friend, Je Brown, heard Hills story. Brown knew he needed to be recognized. So Brown made contact with retired Vietnam veteran Maj. Gen John Admire to make sure Hill received due credit. Admire has been working for 40 years to recognize his Marines who served during Vietnam and Hill was no exception. Admire worked tirelessly on substantiating records until Hill was approved for the Silver Star Medal for his actions while Hill served with 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment. We call it, bringing Gary out of the jungle, said former Marine Bill Lightkep, Hills brotherin-law. To get that award is really about closure for what really happened. According to the citation, Hills platoon commander was killed just after they were directed to assault Hill 881-South in Khe Sanh. e Marines were in need of a leader. Hill answered the call of duty. He rallied and led his re team to protect their dangerously exposed right ank. Between Hill and his other Marines, they had three ries. None of the ries, however, were fully-operational at once. e weapons kept jamming. So Hill and the troops had to set up an assembly line to x and shoot the ries. Hill said, when the rie reached him from the other repair stations he would be ready to shoot the weapon. However, the NVA ghters were close. Hill took matters into his own hands when there was no time to go through that process. He then used his M-16 rie as a weapon of opportunity. I hit one in the head with an M-16, like I was swinging a golf club at his head, Hill said. It knocked him kind of woozy. e only thing about that battle is I would have rather had my M-14. Its much heavier. If I hit him with that his head would have been crushed. Hill bounded to an enemy trench line and single-handedly killed three North Vietnamese Army soldiers. Hill then ordered his re team to provide suppressive res as he maneuvered to locate an NVA sniper. Once the sniper was exposed, Hill and his team killed the sniper. When the battle cooled down, he and other Marine began to care for the wounded. Hills actions consequently saved the lives of eight Marines. Hill, his Marines, and a corpsman have been there for each other ever since. His friend and former Marine Sgt. Tommy Wheeler said the ceremony was no dierent. is is what we do for each other, said Wheeler, who was also awarded a Silver Star for actions in Vietnam that day. Plus the three of us were together. is isnt our rst merry-go-round. Judy, Hills wife of 45 years, can see noticeable change in her husbands behavior after the award. Since he returned from Vietnam, Hill has suered from the eects of posttraumatic stress disorder caused by the intense ghting in the jungles of Vietnam. For Hill, the Silver Star ceremony signied the Nam Marine awarded star 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 11, 2013


e Navy and Chicago White Sox came together again as 85 Chicago-area, Indiana and Wisconsin young men were sworn into the Navy at the 28th annual Chicago White Sox Navy Night at U.S. Cellular Field, June 11. e swearing-in triple play, usually bad to some teams, was good for everyone as it continued a strong 28-year partnership between the Major League Baseball American League Club, Navy recruiting and Navy training. Capt. Robert Fink, chief of sta, Naval Service Training Command, swore in the division before hundreds of White Sox and Navy fans before the White Sox took the eld against the Toronto Blue Jays. is was a wonderful opportunity to be able to participate in this, Fink said. ere is such a tradition here with the White Sox and it is really special when you can raise your hand and take and give the oath on the eld. To be asked to take part in the ceremony and swear-in these area young men has been an excellent experience and the White Sox have been a very gracious host. Finks wife, Cmdr. Nancy Fink, commanding ocer, Navy Recruiting District Chicago, directed the recruiting of the area young men to make up this years White Sox division. e Finks were busy during the pre-game ceremonies. ey were getting the soon-to-be new recruits to the ball park, enlisting the new recruits into the Navy, Capt. Fink threw out the ceremonial rst pitch prior to the game and both met with family members of the new recruits, Chicago-area Navy Leaguers, United States Naval Academy alums, Navy for Moms members, the Recruiting District Assistance Council for NRD Chicago and city and White Sox ocials at a pregame meal held by the team. Being part of this and recruiting these young men to be members of the White Sox Division makes me proud beyond belief, Cmdr. Fink said. When we see the group of individuals that we have and the quality that they are and what theyve overcome in some of the environments they are from, and the decision that theyve made to serve their country, it gives me a lot of hope for the future. One thing weve found out is that the White Sox divisions seem to do better because they have more of a commonality amongst them. eyre coming for the same geographic area and they really bond much quicker helping them do better in boot camp. Both Finks spoke with the dinner guests about Navy successes and about current operations around the world. ey shared with the audience how the new White Sox Division recruits will soon be joining these operations after graduating from RTC. Capt. Fink was also interviewed by Ed Farmer and Darren Jackson, the White Sox radio broadcasting team in the radio booth during the second inning. He shared his enthusiasm for the new Navy aliates and his wife also shared those sentiments. Im so impressed with these young men, Cmdr. Fink said. I wont say its easy because it takes a lot of work to nd them, but there is no shortage of people who want to serve their country from the Chicago, Indiana and Wisconsin area. Its a very patriotic community and its a very military supportive community. e Finks thanked RDAC for yearly supporting the White Sox recruit division and assisting in the recruitment of the Chicagoland recruiting district residents who are transformed from civilians into Sailors in eight weeks at RTC. e 85 new recruits were the special guests during the pregame festivities and entered the eld to a standing ovation from the White Sox faithful. ey were introduced by Cmdr. Fink and enlisted into the Navy by Capt. Fink on the eld behind home plate before the White Sox took on the Blue Jays. I think it was a great honor we were chosen for this division, said Nicolls Nunnenkamp, 17, Romeoville, Ill. I think its a great thing the White Sox do for the Navy. Weve already gotten to know each and that should help in the long run when it comes to communicating and teamwork, said Drew Trotter, 22, Stockton, Ill. Many of the new recruits were inspired to be members of the White Sox recruit division and felt it would carry them through boot camp. It really motivates all of us to serve our country and its a crucial and wonderful to have the White Sox support up and show how much they care about the military, said Justin Rivera, 22, from Homer Glen, Ill. Im a little nervous about whats ahead, but being part of the White Sox division should give all of us an extra boost of condence that will stay with us throughout boot camp. NSTC, commanded by Rear Adm. Dee L. Mewbourne, oversee 98 percent of the ocer and enlisted accessions training for the Navy. at includes the Navys only boot camp, Recruit Training Command, located at Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill. Recruit Training Command trains more than 35,000 volunteers annually transforming civilians into basically trained Sailors.Future Sailors sworn in at White Sox game end of a chapter in his life. Twenty-seven were killed and 54 were wounded. He said now he is sure his fallen comrades can rest in peace. Its one of the happiest days Ive had since before the Marine Corps because it puts to bed 881, Hill said. Ive had a lot of problems since the day. Im just thrilled that I can have somebody like General Krulak to present the award.Hill e United Nations Charter prohibits the use of force by one state against another, but in the cyber world, where are the borders and what constitutes force? Naval Postgraduate School Defense Analysis Distinguished Professor Dorothy Denning is viewed by many as an icon in the eld of information security, but has spent the last several years adding the ethics of cyber warfare to her elds of exploration. Denning teaches a class titled, Conict in Cyber Space that attempts to address the legal and ethical issues raised by cyber warfare. Her students include members of NPS recently inaugurated Master of Science in Cyber Systems Operations degree program, as well as members of the Joint Information Operations program and others on campus. e CSO program is training the Navys rst generation of cyber warriors. We focus on the law of armed conict as well as issues related to censorship, privacy and surveillance ... It is a required course in the CSO program, Denning said. Denning helps her students navigate the murky waters of cyber ethics, where battleelds may consist of layers of code rather than the mountains, seas and planes that have historically dened combat areas of operations. Despite the legal ambiguity of some questions, Denning makes a seemingly powerful case for both the legality and the moral imperative to seek cyber approaches to conventional warfare objectives. If you can achieve the same eects with a cyber weapon versus a kinetic weapon, often that option is ethically preferable ... If an operation is morally justiable, than a cyber route is likely preferable, because it causes less harm, Denning said. Denning and fellow NPS Assistant Professor Bradley Strawser make the argument in a recent paper addressing cyber ethics. In Moral Cyber Weapons, Denning and Strawser argue, At least with some kinds of cyber weapons, not only can they adhere to the principles of just war theory, but that a positive duty to employ them can arise, at least in certain contexts ... e reason for this moral obligation is that cyber weapons reduce both the risk to ones own military and the harm to ones adversary and non-combatants. Overall, cyber weapons are more humane, less destructive, and less risky than kinetic weapons for achieving certain military eects. Denning insists that cyber attacks are not as new as they may appear; pointing out that cyber operations have been used in the past in conjunction with kinetic operations. When Israel bombed Syrias nuclear facility [in 2007], they used a cyber operation to shut o Syrias missile defense systems, she notes. Still, Denning notes that the red line in the realm of cyber warfare, which, if crossed, could lead to kinetic warfare, has not been breached. We havent crossed the threshold where a cyber attack has initiated a kinetic response, Denning said. What we are seeing primarily is espionage, and we have never responded with military force to espionage. Much of the espionage that Denning Cyber prof talks ethics THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 11, 2013 11


USS Enterprise (CVN 65) made her nal voyage to the Newport News Shipyard last month. e ship, nearly six months into her dismantling process, was moved by tugboat on the James River to Newport News Shipyard with almost 150 Newport News Shipbuilding and Huntington Ingalls Industries shipbuilders aboard. e main purpose of bringing the Enterprise up here is to defuel and deactivate her. is is the only shipyard capable of this, said Denis Geary, who works in the radiological controls department at Newport News. e move marks one of Enterprises nal trips underway and is expected to be the last opportunity for shipbuilders and crew to ride the ship. Shirley Langston was part of the original planning for the ship. I worked on the Big E from the beginning, he said. It was my rst project 55 years ago. Its sad to see her go, but we are all proud of what shes done. roughout Enterprises 51-years in service, many of the career shipbuilders riding the ship worked on Enterprise during her scheduled maintenance periods. Henry Deese, an engineering analyst at the shipyard, talked about his time working on Enterprise. Working on the ship from the beginning and following it throughout its life had been rewarding, he said. I was part if the team that started it and Im part of the team that will nish it. Its sad to see Enterprise go when its the rst, last, and only one of its kind, but thats life. Captain William C. Hamilton, Jr., Enterprises commanding ocer, monitored the ships progress from the navigation bridge. Its sad to see a ship with such a history taken apart and the Sailors leave, but we are looking forward to commissioning the next Enterprise, Hamilton said. Right now our focus is the safety of our Sailors and shipyard workers as we take the ship on this underway and continue the dismantling process. Enterprises keel was laid at Newport News Shipbuilding in 1958 and she was commissioned November 25, 1961. e ship was formally inactivated at a ceremony held at Naval Station Norfolk December 1, 2012. e announcement that the next nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, CVN-80, will be called Enterprise was made at this ceremony. Enterprise makes last trip When NASA Administrator Charles Bolden announced the latest class of NASAs eight astronaut candidates June 17, the Naval Postgraduate School was able to add yet another space-traveling alumnus to its ranks, now totaling 41 and counting. Lt. Cmdr. Victor Glover, an F/A-18 combat pilot currently serving as a Legislative Fellow in the oce of Senator John McCain, was selected from more than 6,100 applicants to begin training at Johnson Space Center in August for potential space ight. Glover graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School in 2009 through the Masters of Systems Engineering ManagementProduct Development 21st Century program, in addition to receiving a space systems academic certicate in 2005, both via distance learning. Glover notes the two programs, while both very dierent, provide a tremendous foundation for the challenging training that lies ahead of him. Certainly, the space sys tems certicate program is directly applicable, Glover said. It gives you the basics of communica tions, orbital mechanics, imaging systems ... things that are very relevant to the processes of manned space exploration. But, he continues, his experience in the SEMPD21 program provided an immediate payo to his position in the Fleet. I was a test pilot, working in the systems engi neering eld, actually do ing test and evaluation under the umbrella of weapons systems acquisition, Glover said, emphasizing the direct re lationship between his studies and work assign ments. My work prod uct bolstered my school product, and likewise, my school product improved my work quality. Systems engineering has really emerged over the last several years as a critical discipline for the development of systems that meet the needs of the warghter, added Dr. Cli Whitcomb, NPS Department of Systems Engineering Chair. Whether it is in test and evaluation, development, or in life cycle sustainment, its an engineering discipline that provides students, especially at the masters level, with a very holistic, balanced perspective. Not only did the coursework provide an immediate payo, but its simple availability to Glover was equally as valued. e thing that was really amazing about both of these programs is that they are distributed, and they allowed me to continue my professional development through advanced formal education where I was stationed, he stressed. I actually did the space systems certicate while I was deployed to the Middle East ying combat missions o the USS John F. Kennedy. Lt. Cmdr. Glover com pleted our space systems certicate program back in 2005, and I am very pleased to see he will be able to apply some of what he learned to his ambitions in space ight, added Space Systems Academic Group Chair Dr. Rudy Panholzer. As a Navy pilot, it is very challenging for these o cers to remove themselves from the cockpit to obtain a valued, educational ex perience in the classroom. Although a few years removed from his time at NPS, Glover was recalled by his former advisers and teachers as an overachiever. I remember Victor Glover as an exceptional student in the product development 21st century (PD-21) curriculum, noted Dr. John Osmundson, a Research Associate Professor in the NPS Department of Information Sciences and co-advisor on Glovers thesis. He was extremely enthusiastic and always produced very high-quality, technical work. It was clear from his interactions with the rest of his PD-21 cohorts that Victor was a natural leader. He had an outgoing, engaging personality and always integrated the rest of the students in course discussions and project work.Navy has new astronaut EODs earn Bronze Stars Two Sailors from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 2 were awarded the Bronze Star Medal, for their actions during Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, during an award ceremony held on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, June 18. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician 1st Class Johnny J. Novela was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Combat V device for heroic achievement and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician 2nd Class John F. Piowaty was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious achievement in connection with combat operations. Rear Adm. Michael Tillotson, commander, Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, presented the medals in addition to four Joint Service Commendation Medals. Im glad were able to recognize our Sailors today, said Tillotson. ese Navy EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) warriors represent the best of the community; always ready to engage the enemy and looking after one another, I couldnt be prouder. Novela was cited for heroic achievement in connection with combat operations against the enemy while serving as an EOD team member while assigned to a Joint Task Force in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from April 13 to 14, 2012. Novelas strike force was in a reght with multiple barricaded shooters when, in an eort to prevent further injuries to a pinned down U.S. Army Ranger, Novela risked his own life maneuvering to draw enemy re to his position away from his fallen comrade. His engagement with multiple combatants with eective small arms re ensured the safe extraction of the wounded Ranger. I didnt even think about it, it just happened, Novela said. It feels great to receive this award but honestly I was just doing my job. I love each and every one of those guys like a brother and I know they would have done the same for me. Piowaty was cited for meritorious achievement involving combat operations against the enemy. He served as an EOD team leader while assigned to a Joint Task Force in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, March 14 to July 15, 2012. Piowatys leadership and tactical prociency directly contributed to the task forces success in disrupting enemy operations during numerous direct action missions. In addition, Piowaty safely escorted assault force personnel clearing kilometers of terrain and several enemy compounds. Piowaty directly contributed to the capture of multiple targeted individuals and resulted in the signicant reduction of enemy capabilities. EODs fundamental goal is the protection of personnel: looking out for your team, the units you are attached to, and your foreign partners who will continue the ght, Piowaty said. is award will serve as a daily reminder of that promise. I am honored to receive such a distinguished award. e Bronze Star Medal is awarded to an individ ual who, while serving in or with the military of the United States, distinguishes him or herself by heroic or meritorious achievement while engaged in an ac tion against an enemy of the United States or while engaged in military opera tions involving conict with an opposing foreign force. President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the Bronze Star Medal by Executive Order 9419 Feb. 1944, retroactive to Dec. 7, 1941. e Executive Order was later amended by President John F.

THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, July 11, 2013 13 On a stormy spring night at Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., Coast Guardsmen stood watch, ready to respond at a moments notice. Following a busy afternoon of searching for two missing boaters, the evening was accompanied by nothing more than the occasional crackle of a VHF-FM radio. Around 8 p.m. a call came in from cruise ship, 150 miles east of Cape Lookout, N.C. A 50-yearold man suered a heart attack and needed to get to a hospital. It was operations normal for most; another chance to save a life. However, for one junior petty ocer, this case was far from the norm. He would be setting out on his rst rescue since earning his spot as the Coast Guard rescue swimmer No. 830. Petty Ocer 3rd Class Steve Scheren, fresh out of rescue swimmer school, had spent the last year training for this moment. After completing the 12-week, prerequisite airman program, he began his 16-week rescue swimmer school in Elizabeth City, where he beat attrition rates averaging 50 percent and peaking at 80 percent. As Scheren grabbed his gear and ran toward the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, he was condent he could save this 50-yearold mans life. I wasnt trying to think of it as a rst rescue, said Scheren. I was just thinking about my training and the procedures and protocols that Id been taught. Crews aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and an HC-13 Hercules airplane took o from the air station and headed out over the Atlantic Ocean as the sun began to fade over the horizon. At approximately 9:30 p.m., the Hercules crew hailed the cruise ship and began to discuss their plans. Most Elizabeth City swimmers rst rescue seems to be a cruise ship medevac, said Scheren. e procedure for getting people o [a ship] is pretty standard, unless you have unfavorable weather conditions. Youre going to follow a pretty simple plan. As the helicopter came to a hover o the port side of the cruise ship, Scheren realized how calm the conditions felt, speaking to the seasoned pilots ability to stabilize the aircraft in 20-mph winds. As the ight mechanic connected the helicopters hook to Scherens harness and said load check complete, the only thing on his mind was making contact with the medical personnel and getting to the patient. Once Scheren made contact with the doctor, he was led inside the ship where he rst saw the survivor who was conscious and in stable condition. I wanted him to feel comfortable with me, Scheren said. I wanted to put him at ease and not cause him any more stress than necessary. e man was rolled onto the deck of the ship, an area providing a level and open platform for the gurney to be positioned beside the litter. Scheren and some of the ships crew grabbed the sheet beneath the survivor and transferred the man onto the litter, where the spotlight of the helicopter greeted them. Scheren gave a thumbs up to the awaiting ight mechanic in the helicopter 30 feet above him. As the survivor rose above Scherens head, he took a moment to absorb what was going on around him. is was my rst time hoisting a live person in the litter, Scheren said. I was a bit nervous, but I had a trail line, which allowed me to keep total control. e hook was lowered one nal time and Scheren once again clipped it into his harness before dangling beneath the aircraft for 10 seconds surrounded by complete darkness. Once in the helicopter, the door was closed, and Scheren hooked up equipment to the patient, giving him continuous readouts of the patients vitals, crucial for the hospital sta. Scherens heart nally began to slow and his nerves began to calm as the survivor cracked a joke. After nine hours of combined ight time that day, the Jayhawk crew landed back at the air station. Plans had changed, and due to the duration of the ight, the crew met their maximum allowed ight time, requiring a crew change with the helicopters engines running. e back-up crew jumped into the helicopter and ew toward Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where the heart-attack victim was safely delivered. You spend so long training, hearing instructors yell so others may live, its nice to really feel that youre living your creed, Scheren said. Ive got a son and a wife at home that I love very much. Knowing that someone else is going to have a loved one that I was able to help is a very special thing. Coast Guard rescue swimmer lives his creed Grounding Investigation completede Navy has released the results of an investigation that assessed circumstances surrounding the ex-USS Guardian grounding that occurred in Philippine waters on January 17. Characterizing the ex-Guardians grounding on Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea as a tragic mishap, Adm. Cecil D. Haney, commander of the U.S. Pacic Fleet, wrote in the 160-page document that USS Guardian leadership and watch teams failed to adhere to prudent, safe, and sound navigation principles which would have alerted them to approaching dangers with sucient time to take mitigating action. Haney further summarized that a lack of leadership led to the watch teams disregard of visual cues, electronic cues and alarms in the hours leading up to the grounding, and that an ultimate reliance on what would turn out to be inaccurate Digital Nautical Charts during the planning and execution of the navigation plan ultimately led to a degradation of the ships navigation ability. Haney did however have words of praise for the heroic eorts of the crew to save their ship. Highlighting the actions of the Engineering and Damage Control teams, Haney wrote that their eorts were instrumental in reinforcing the ships hull integrity despite multiple breaches. He also commended the Boat Coxswains, Damage Control Assistant, and the Navy rescue swimmers who all ensured the safe evacuation of the crew without signicant injuries. e commanding ocer of ex-Guardian, Lt. Cmdr. Mark Rice, the executive ocer/navigator Lt. Daniel Tyler, the assistant navigator, and the ocer of the deck at the time of the grounding were relieved of their duties on April 3 by Rear Adm. Jerey A. Harley, commander, Expeditionary Strike Group 7. Further administrative action is under consideration. e Avenger-class mine countermeasures ship had just completed a port call in Subic Bay and was en route to Indonesia and then on to Timor-Leste to participate in a training exercise when the grounding occurred, approximately 80 miles east-southeast of Palawan Island. Guardian was subsequently dismantled, decommissioned and stricken from the naval registry. After the incident, the United States and Philippines conducted a joint marine damage assessment. e U.S. government is prepared to work with the Philippines to provide compensation for the damage to the reef caused by the grounding. Guardian and its crews had served the Navy honorably for more than 23 years.
