Survey seeking female input Voluntary query will gauge level of interest in submarine duty From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairse Navy has opened a voluntary online survey to all female enlisted Sailors to understand the level of interest among women to serve aboard submarines. A Navy task force was formed last summer to develop options for integrating enlisted women into the submarine force. e survey results will be used to help guide ongoing planning eorts. We seek input from professional women Sailors throughout our Navy, even if they arent interested in serving aboard submarines, said Rear Adm. Ken Perry, a career submariner who leads the task force. Responses to the survey questions will help shape future Navy policy and are key to getting the integration right. Perry emphasized that all survey responses will remain anonymous. I value honest input. Give it to us straight. All responses will remain anonymous, period, he said. Female Sailors can access the online survey by logging on the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System commonly known as NSIPS. Once logged on, personnel can follow these steps: Locate the Employee Self Service link in the column on the left side of the page titled Menu. Expand the Employee Self Service link options. en expand the options under the Electronic Service Record link. Click the Tasks link. en click the Survey Requests link. e survey will be visible under the Pending Surveys Up Periscope You won the lottery ... now what?

It Only Takes A Minute theme for April observanceFrom Fleet and Family Support Center Kings BayApril was proclaimed Child Abuse Prevention Month by Congress in 1982. Since then, child abuse and neglect awareness activities have been promoted across the country during April each year. e Navys theme for the 2014 April Child Abuse Prevention Month is It Only Takes a Minute. It reinforces to our community that children are fragile and responsible age-appropriate supervision is mandatory. e message is to educate parents and other child caregivers that child abuse and neglect and child fatalities often times occur very quickly. ere have been numerous child abuse and neglect incidents and child deaths reported to have been caused by young parents or other caretakers who were focused on playing a video game or using another electronic device, instead of tending to the needs of the child. e theme serves as a reminder that all child abuse and neglect incidents and child fatalities are preventable when healthy parenting and child-care practices are incorporated into your daily routine to prevent child abuse. Be on the lookout for It Only Takes a Minute billboard displays around the base. ere are many ways to support awareness and prevention of child abuse in our community. e Kings Bay community must work together to prevent the tragedy of child abuse and death that happens all too often. One such awareness activity is the Blue Ribbon Campaign. Blue ribbons are tied to car antennas, worn as pins and placed around communities to commemorate children who have died from abuse and to promote awareness of the need to prevent child abuse. is movement was started by a Virginia grandmother whose grandson died from child abuse at the hands of her daughters boyfriend. e Blue Ribbon Campaign has grown into a nationwide event. Another awareness activity is Pinwheels for Prevention. is national organizations mission is to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nations children. Pinwheels will be placed around the Kings Bay community to bring attention to the tragedy of child abuse. Pinwheels were chosen as the symbol because they remind us of childlike notions and stand for the healthy, happy and full lives that all children deserve. For more information on healthy parenting and child care practices, contact New Parent Home Visitation Program at Fleet and Family Support Center at (912) 573-4512. Eort is to improve utility, building infrastructureBy Shawn MillerNaval District Washington Public AffairsAs each of the ve pillars of the Naval District Washington energy policy build upon one another into a comprehensive strategy, eciency becomes a keystone in the hierarchy. Energy leaders within Naval Facilities Engineering Command and other NDW commands are teaming up in an eort to improve building and utility infrastructure and vehicles by incorporating technology and management practices in the hopes of saving power and money. One of the main areas being looked at is renovation and construction of high performance and sustainable buildings through the NDW-NAVFAC Capital Improvements Energy Checklist and the U.S. Green Building Councils Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. e energy checklist is a tool to help bridge the gap between more than 40 energy mandates and the end products and services, explained NAVFAC architect Mike Gala, the checklist leader. Working with the checklist becomes a collabora tive process across many disciplines and people from architects and policy makers down to individual installation energy managers in the eld implementing the projects. Im helping focus their targets in the earliest phases of the projects so they can better allocate resources-dollars and technology-in the right direction, Gala said of the IEMs. We need installation energy managers to help us dene what the performance goal is and what that performance target is. is is that collaboration that is really necessary. e energy checklist is composed of 15 dierent areas covering various aspects of buildings and systems including eciency, data measurement and verication, fuel choices, and renewable energy sources, and is continually monitored throughout the life cycle of the project. As goals are continually met and more are set for the future, Gala adapts the checklist as time passes to ensure it meets the changing needs in NDW. See Energy, Page 3 Cmdr.

Cmdr. Chris Bohner relieved Cmdr. Richard Dubnansky as commanding ocer of USS Tennessee (SSBN 734) (Gold). Dubnansky attributed his successful tour onboard Tennessee to the crew members and their families. is event is very bitter sweet for me, Dubnansky said. Ive been attached to the Tennessee for over three years now, years lled with challenges and successes I could never have imagined when I took command on September 28, 2011. Dubnansky said that his crew onboard Tennessee was the best group of Sailors he has worked with in his career.

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, April 10, 2014 From the Navy Southeast Judge Advocate Generals OfficeAdoption can be a very exciting process for many military families. is life altering process, though, is also one that can be very challenging, costly and time consuming for many military families. Fortunately, installation Region Legal Service Oces and the Department of Defense oer a wide range of legal advice and cost saving measures that can make the process much easier for our service men and women. For most military members seeking assistance with adoptions, the most common type is the stepparent adoption, in which one spouse legally adopts the child of the other spouse from a previous relationship. To complete a stepparent adoption, a court must terminate the parental rights of the other biological parent. In cases where the adoption is not contested, the biological parent may voluntarily waive his or her parental rights. Sometimes, however, there are situations in which the whereabouts of the other parent may not be known or perhaps that parent is not willing to voluntarily relinquish his or her parental rights. In these circumstances, there are very specic, and sometimes lengthy, steps which may need to be taken in order to terminate the parental rights of the other parent. Consult a local RLSO Legal Assistance oce regarding any questions on terminating parental rights. One big burden for many military families seeking to complete an adoption is cost. Between court costs, attorney fees and other incidental expenses, the nancial burden of completing an adoption can be overwhelming. Most states require that individuals seeking adoptions have an attorney to represent them. To help alleviate many of these costs, the Department of Defense oers an adoption reimbursement program that provides up to $2,000 of expenses per child, not to exceed $5,000 per year. More information about this program can be found on the DFAS website or in DoD Instruction 1341.9. It is important to note that reimbursement will not occur until the adoption process is complete. Local RLSO Legal Assistance oces can provide guidance in preparing the reimbursement paperwork. Additionally, while RLSO Legal Assistance attorneys cannot represent military members and their families in adoption cases, RLSO Legal Assistance oces have resources available to interested families that can put them in touch with local family law attorneys, many of whom oer discounts to military families. For individuals considering adoption, it is very important to have a complete understanding as to what obligations attach once the adoption is nal. RLSO Legal Assistance attorneys can answer questions regarding parental rights and responsibilities that prospective adoptive parents From the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Mail RoomNaval Submarine Base Kings Bays Mail Room gets a great deal of mail addressed to individuals living in Unaccompanied Housing with a Building number and room number.

Its an ongoing process and its a live document, so as criteria changes, Im updating the energy checklist, he said. e checklist is not automatically used in every energy project, however. Depending on the scope and scale of an energy project, the checklist may not always be necessary, Gala explained. Some smaller projects might only need to renovate certain key components within a building or system without necessitating the broader strokes of the checklist. e true power of the checklist, Gala said, is when architects and energy personnel are able to aect a broader range of projects, such as constructing all new infrastructure that incorporates LEED certications. Our focus with the energy checklist is really high performance buildings, said Gala of smarter and more ecient structures. at focus expands beyond simply building the framework and systems, and delves into the monitoring of the buildings performance to help evaluate processes and adapt if necessary. While many of the smarter systems may cost more up front during construction, having the data to prove the eventual energy savings helps to justify the extra initial funding, Gala said. Its a very cyclical relationship, he noted. After architects design the systems, the IEMs are the eld-level experts in providing the data and feedback crucial to maintaining that relationship. Having many dierent people involved in the collaborative process of the checklist is benecial because it prevents stovepiping of people and resources into competing forces, Gala said. While implementation often poses the biggest challenge, the checklist helps focus eorts and work toward the ultimate goal of building the NDW energy strategy. Its helping you navigate all those mandates and all those requirements in a multidiscipline approach, he said. e ultimate goal is to reduce our energy footprint. will have once the process is complete.

All positions currently closed to women are to be opened by January 2016 unless granted an exception by the Defense Secretary. Todays submarine force includes 72 nuclearpowered submarines located among seven home ports in the Atlantic and Pacic regions. e submarine force began integrating female ocers into ballistic-missile and guided-missile submarine crews in 2011.

Ken ScarArmy Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commanding general, addresses the media during a press conference about the April 2 shooting on Fort Hood, April 4. Three soldiers were killed and 16 wounded. Six remain hospitalized. By Claudette RouloAmerican Forces Press Servicee three soldiers killed in the April 2 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, have been identied while the search continues for answers that might explain the motive for the killings. Army Lt. Gen. Mark. A. Milley on April 4 identied those killed as: Army Sgt. First Class Daniel Michael Ferguson, 39, from Mulberry, Fla., enlisted in July 1993 as a transportation management coordinator. He had deployed to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. Army Sta Sgt. Carlos Lazaney Rodriguez, 38, from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, enlisted in February 1995 as a unit supply specialist. He had deployed to Kuwait and Iraq. Army Sgt. Timothy Wayne Owens, 37, from Engham, Ill., enlisted in July 2004 as a motor transport operator. He had deployed to Iraq and Kuwait. Six soldiers remained hospitalized, the general said. ree were at Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas, and three were at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood. Ten other soldiers wounded in the shootings have been released and returned to duty. Investigators have started looking closely at the background of the alleged shooter, Spc. Ivan Lopez. We are digging into his combat experience in Iraq, Milley said. And so far, we have not discovered any specic traumatic event, wounds received in action, contact with the enemy or anything else specic that he may have been exposed to while deployed. It does not appear that any of Lopez underlying medical conditions were a direct precipitating factor in the shootings, Milley said. We believe that the immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area, he said. We do have credible information he was involved in a verbal altercation with soldiers from his unit just prior to him allegedly opening re, said Chris Grey, public aairs chief for Army Criminal Investigation Command.

Their primary job is responding to spills of hazardous products, like oil or diesel fuel, on navigable waters. Port OpsA typical first response is on a Boom Boat. Port Ops is manned 24/7 with personnel and tools ready to respond. Conventional navigation tools are still the best. This compass, below, is used to get the boats needed on station. Once on station, the Port Ops On Scene Leader will access the type of hazardous material, the severity, whats at risk and the best method to con tain the spill. Right, a Platform boat lets out boom. The Boom Boat pulls the boom on scene. The Platform boat and boom can be seen in the distance. BMC Steven Douglas prepares line to anchor the boom to land. The plan during this exercise is to deflect the oil to be safely recovered. EM1 Charles Walker connects the other end of the boom to another anchor. Working over the side of the boat is a common occurrence at Port Ops. Only Sailors fully qualified Second Class Swimmers, Boom Handler and Crew Member are allowed to do it. MMCS Shannon Bloodworth, Port Ops Senior Enlisted Advisor, demonstrates the technique of driving a small boat thats towing boom. Its time to anchor the boom to the second spit of land.

American Forces Press ServiceJoint Chiefs of Sta Chairman Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, and Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the commander of the International Security Assistance Force, congratulated the people of Afghanistan on their historic election April 5, and also saluted the Afghan security forces for their eorts to make the elections happen. Today there is reason for celebration in Afghanistan, Dempsey said in a statement. Millions turned out to vote, with Afghan National Security Forces looking out for the safety of Afghan people as they cast votes at more than 6,000 polling sites. Clearly, this is an important step in the rst democratic transfer of power in Afghanistans history. But todays election did not come without signicant sacrice the sacrice of the Afghan people and many Americans and service members from partner nations who have been killed and wounded ghting there since 2001, the chairman continued. We look forward to the outcome of the elections and the opportunity to continue to work together, with a willing partner, for a better Afghanistan. e Afghan people can be proud of their security forces. For months, theyve conducted planning and security operations to ensure that the conditions were set for inclusive elections, Dunford said in an ISAF news release issued today. As the world watched, Afghan National Security Forces provided the opportunity for the Afghan people to choose their new president, securing over 6,200 polling centers across the country, the ISAF release said. Soldiers and policemen condently patrolled the cities and countryside to protect innocent civilians and prevent insurgents from disrupting todays elections, the ISAF release said, and Afghan voters displayed condence in their army and police, turning out in unprecedented numbers to cast their ballot for the future of Afghanistan. What we saw today as a result of that eort was extraordinary, Dunford said If I won the lottery, I would disappear for a month. I know where I would go but cant tell you because I wouldnt want anybody to find me. I would use the month to decide how I was going to spend the rest of my life. When I reappeared, I probably would fly to my daughters home and give her, my son-in-law and my granddaughter a split before I blew it all. After that, I really dont know. Thats why I would take the month first, to decide the rest. Heres what others said.Finish this sentence: If I won the lottery . .Penny Harper Family member New Orleans I would take care of our family and pay off bills. Then I would go back to Italy.

KouschFrom Coast Guard CompassIn the labyrinth and conuence of ladders, corridors and gangways aboard the 540-foot T. S. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Maritime Academys cadet training ship, it was a hellish close quarters combat training for 15 members from four maritime safety and security teams from Boston, New York, New Orleans and Galveston, Texas. In the chilly shores o Sandwich, Mass., someone joked of how much warmer it was in Texas, but, it sure heated up as soon as the games started and ramped up for a couple of hours. Training multiple law enforcement teams simultaneously is a rare and precious opportunity, so this particular event means a lot to the trainees and to unit commanders. Maritime Safety and Security Team Boston Command Senior Chief William P. Kleins role is crucial as one of the training observers. MSST Boston and New York had previously worked together; Galveston and New Orleans the same, said Klein. However, the connections ended there. e New York members had never worked with Galveston, New Orleans never with Boston, and so on and so forth, and it didnt matter. Rank insignia was nonexistent. Several members graduated from the Coast Guard Special Mission Training Centers Basic Tactical Operator Course in Camp Lejeune, N.C., where they trained in advanced weapons and close quarters combat. However, as the hellish event began, BTOC graduates performance were barely distinguishable from non-graduates, a testament to each units standard training programs and the inevitable result from the teams forming, storming and norming phases that unfolded within a compressed twohour timeframe. BTOC really establishes a solid foundation for all Deployable Specialized Force Tactical Operators to employ CQC in a realworld event, said Petty Ocer ird Class Jon W. Sykes of MSST Boston. Honing our skill-set during training opportunities like this is absolutely essential to establish and maintain prociency. e teams were grouped into two Advanced Interdiction Teams: 3, MSST New Orleans and Galveston; and 5, MSST New York and Boston. AIT-5s major component is currently deployed to U.S. Central Command in support of the Coast Guard Atlantic Areas ongoing participation in anti-piracy operations o the Horn of Africa. AIT-3 is preparing to deploy this spring. Training goals were simple: (1) have each advanced interdiction team share their respective standard operating procedures for executing CQC through a crawl, walk, run approach during a basic training evolution and (2) to reinforce and hardwire standard CQC tactics, techniques, procedures and nomenclature taught by SMTC during BTOC back at home base during daily training. Overall, it all came together in one succinct event for one hellish adventure. e gauntlet at hand consisted of executing exterior CQC movement along a weather deck leading to the focal point hitting a complex system of dual stairways accessed via two center fed, opposing double doors the guts of the stairway to hell. Surprisingly, the rst evolution went smooth, followed by increasing prociency across the second and third runs. Best practices were shared; self-critiques led to lessons learned and teachable moments. e real win here was the ability for all of us to come together in rapid fashion as a team and compare CQC notes to improve our ability to respond to a crisis, said Petty Ocer 1st Class Oliver Ollie Haeske of MSST Galveston. Impressively, the trainees demonstrated their collective and individual abilities to eectively navigate several principles specic to the CQC: rapidly process information, effectively deal with a maze of angles, red zones and sectors of re. In fullling the training objectives, the teams were outstanding in seamlessly shifting between deliberate and dynamic CQC movements. Whether direction was given from a seasoned tactical operator who joined the U. S. Marine Corps in 1989 and participating in Desert Storm before joining the 82nd Airborne which eventually led to his enlistment in the Coast Guard, to a junior Maritime Enforcement Specialist A-school graduate preparing to attend BTOC in a month, success was achieved through mutual exchange of ideas, increasing individual prociency and contributing overall to the teams ability to respond to a non-compliant boarding. From obscure vantage points throughout the massive ship, observers said the teams jelled through the intensive training. Coast Guard photoMaritime safety and security teams navigate the 540-foot T.

We seek input from profes sional women Sailors throughout our Navy, even if they arent interested in serving aboard sub marines, said Rear Adm. Ken Perry, a career submariner who leads the task force. Responses to the survey questions will help shape future Navy policy and are key to getting the integration right. Perry emphasized that all sur vey responses will remain anon ymous. I value honest input. Give it to us straight. All respons es will remain anonymous, pe riod, he said.

It Only Takes A Minute theme for April observanceFrom Fleet and Family Support Center Kings BayApril was proclaimed Child Abuse Pre vention Month by Congress in 1982. Since then, child abuse and neglect awareness activities have been promoted across the country during April each year. e Navys theme for the 2014 April Child Abuse Prevention Month is It Only Takes a Minute. It reinforces to our community that children are fragile and responsible age-ap propriate supervision is mandatory. e message is to educate parents and other child caregivers that child abuse and neglect and child fatalities often times occur very quickly. ere have been numerous child abuse and neglect incidents and child deaths re ported to have been caused by young par ents or other caretakers who were focused on playing a video game or using another electronic device, instead of tending to the needs of the child. e theme serves as a reminder that all child abuse and neglect incidents and child fatalities are preventable when healthy par enting and child-care practices are incorporated into your daily routine to prevent child abuse. Be on the lookout for It Only Takes a Minute billboard displays around the base. ere are many ways to support aware ness and prevention of child abuse in our community. e Kings Bay community must work together to prevent the tragedy of child abuse and death that happens all too often. One such awareness activity is the Blue Ribbon Campaign. Blue ribbons are tied to car antennas, worn as pins and placed around communities to commemorate children who have died from abuse and to promote awareness of the need to prevent child abuse. is movement was started by a Virginia grandmother whose grandson died from child abuse at the hands of her daughters boyfriend. e Blue Ribbon Campaign has grown into a nationwide event. Another awareness activity is Pinwheels for Prevention. is national organizations mission is to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nations children.

Eort is to improve utility, building infrastructureBy Shawn MillerNaval District Washington Public AffairsAs each of the ve pillars of the Naval District Washington energy policy build upon one another into a comprehensive strategy, eciency becomes a keystone in the hierarchy. Energy leaders within Naval Facilities Engineering Command and other NDW commands are teaming up in an eort to improve building and utility infrastructure and vehicles by incorporating technology and management practices in the hopes of saving power and money. One of the main areas being looked at is renovation and construction of high performance and sustainable buildings through the NDW-NAVFAC Capital Improvements Energy Checklist and the U.S. Green Building Councils Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. e energy checklist is a tool to help bridge the gap between more than 40 en ergy mandates and the end products and services, explained NAVFAC architect Mike Gala, the checklist leader. Working with the checklist becomes a collabora tive process across many dis ciplines and people from architects and policy makers down to individual installation energy managers in the eld imple menting the projects. Im helping focus their targets in the earliest phases of the projects so they can better allocate resources-dollars and technology-in the right direction, Gala said of the IEMs. We need installation energy managers to help us dene what the performance goal is and what that perfor mance target is. is is that collaboration that is really necessary. e energy checklist is composed of 15 dierent areas covering various aspects of build ings and systems including eciency, data mea surement and verication, fuel choices, and renewable energy sources, and is continually monitored throughout the life cycle of the project. As goals are continually met and more are set for the future, Gala adapts the checklist as time passes to ensure it meets the changing needs in NDW. See Energy, Page 3 Cmdr.

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, April 10, 2014 From the Navy Southeast Judge Advocate Generals OfficeAdoption can be a very exciting process for many military families. is life altering process, though, is also one that can be very challeng ing, costly and time consuming for many military families. Fortunately, installation Region Legal Service Oces and the De partment of Defense oer a wide range of legal advice and cost saving measures that can make the process much easier for our service men and women. For most military members seek ing assistance with adoptions, the most common type is the steppar ent adoption, in which one spouse legally adopts the child of the other spouse from a previous relationship. To complete a stepparent adop tion, a court must terminate the pa rental rights of the other biological parent. In cases where the adoption is not contested, the biological par ent may voluntarily waive his or her parental rights. Sometimes, however, there are sit uations in which the whereabouts of the other parent may not be known or perhaps that parent is not will ing to voluntarily relinquish his or her parental rights. In these circum stances, there are very specic, and sometimes lengthy, steps which may need to be taken in order to terminate the parental rights of the other parent. Consult a local RLSO Legal Assistance oce regarding any questions on terminating pa rental rights. One big burden for many mili tary families seeking to complete an adoption is cost. Between court costs, attorney fees and other incidental expenses, the nancial burden of completing an adoption can be overwhelming. Most states require that individuals seeking adoptions have an attorney to represent them. To help alleviate many of these costs, the Department of Defense oers an adoption reimbursement program that provides up to $2,000 of expenses per child, not to exceed $5,000 per year. More information about this program can be found on the DFAS website or in DoD Instruction 1341.9. It is important to note that reimbursement will not occur until the adoption process is complete. Local RLSO Legal Assistance oc es can provide guidance in prepar ing the reimbursement paperwork. Additionally, while RLSO Legal As sistance attorneys cannot represent military members and their families in adoption cases, RLSO Legal As sistance oces have resources avail able to interested families that can put them in touch with local family law attorneys, many of whom oer discounts to military families. For individuals considering adoption, it is very important to have a complete understanding as to what obligations attach once the adop tion is nal. RLSO Legal Assistance attorneys can answer questions regarding parental rights and responsibilities that prospective adoptive parents From the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Mail RoomNaval Submarine Base Kings Bays Mail Room gets a great deal of mail addressed to individuals living in Unaccompanied Housing with a Building number and room number.

Its an ongoing process and its a live document, so as criteria changes, Im updating the energy checklist, he said. e checklist is not automatically used in every energy project, however. Depending on the scope and scale of an energy project, the checklist may not always be necessary, Gala explained. Some smaller projects might only need to reno vate certain key compo nents within a building or system without necessitating the broader strokes of the checklist. e true power of the checklist, Gala said, is when architects and energy personnel are able to aect a broader range of projects, such as constructing all new infrastructure that incorporates LEED certications. Our focus with the energy checklist is really high performance buildings, said Gala of smarter and more ecient structures. at focus expands be yond simply building the framework and systems, and delves into the monitoring of the buildings performance to help evaluate processes and adapt if necessary. While many of the smarter systems may cost more up front during construction, hav ing the data to prove the eventual energy savings helps to justify the extra initial funding, Gala said. Its a very cyclical relationship, he noted. After architects design the systems, the IEMs are the eld-level experts in providing the data and feedback crucial to main taining that relationship. Having many dierent people involved in the collaborative process of the checklist is benecial because it prevents stovepiping of people and re sources into competing forces, Gala said. While implementation often poses the biggest challenge, the checklist helps focus eorts and work toward the ultimate goal of building the NDW energy strategy. Its helping you navi gate all those mandates and all those requirements in a multidiscipline approach, he said. e ultimate goal is to reduce our energy footprint. will have once the process is complete.

Ken ScarArmy Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commanding general, addresses the media dur ing a press conference about the April 2 shooting on Fort Hood, April 4. Three soldiers were killed and 16 wounded. Six remain hospitalized. By Claudette RouloAmerican Forces Press Servicee three soldiers killed in the April 2 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, have been identied while the search continues for an swers that might explain the motive for the killings. Army Lt. Gen. Mark. A. Milley on April 4 identied those killed as: Army Sgt. First Class Daniel Michael Ferguson, 39, from Mulberry, Fla., enlisted in July 1993 as a transportation management coordinator. He had deployed to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. Army Sta Sgt. Carlos Lazaney Rodriguez, 38, from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, enlisted in February 1995 as a unit supply specialist. He had deployed to Ku wait and Iraq. Army Sgt. Timothy Wayne Owens, 37, from Eng ham, Ill., enlisted in July 2004 as a motor transport op erator. He had deployed to Iraq and Kuwait. Six soldiers remained hospitalized, the general said. ree were at Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas, and three were at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood. Ten other soldiers wounded in the shootings have been released and returned to duty. Investigators have started looking closely at the back ground of the alleged shooter, Spc. Ivan Lopez. We are digging into his combat experience in Iraq, Milley said. And so far, we have not discovered any spe cic traumatic event, wounds received in action, con tact with the enemy or anything else specic that he may have been exposed to while deployed. It does not appear that any of Lopez underlying med ical conditions were a direct precipitating factor in the shootings, Milley said. We believe that the immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area, he said. We do have credible information he was involved in a verbal altercation with soldiers from his unit just prior to him allegedly opening re, said Chris Grey, public aairs chief for Army Criminal Investigation Command.

Their primary job is responding to spills of hazardous products, like oil or diesel fuel, on navigable waters. Port OpsA typical first response is on a Boom Boat. Port Ops is manned 24/7 with personnel and tools ready to respond. Conventional navigation tools are still the best. This compass, below, is used to get the boats needed on station. Once on station, the Port Ops On Scene Leader will access the type of hazardous material, the severity, whats at risk and the best method to con tain the spill. Right, a Platform boat lets out boom. The Boom Boat pulls the boom on scene. The Platform boat and boom can be seen in the distance. BMC Steven Douglas prepares line to anchor the boom to land. The plan during this exercise is to deflect the oil to be safely recovered. EM1 Charles Walker connects the other end of the boom to another anchor. Working over the side of the boat is a common occurrence at Port Ops. Only Sailors fully qualified Second Class Swimmers, Boom Handler and Crew Member are allowed to do it. MMCS Shannon Bloodworth, Port Ops Senior Enlisted Advisor, demonstrates the technique of driving a small boat thats tow ing boom. Its time to anchor the boom to the second spit of land.

American Forces Press ServiceJoint Chiefs of Sta Chairman Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, and Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the commander of the International Security Assistance Force, congratulated the peo ple of Afghanistan on their historic elec tion April 5, and also saluted the Afghan security forces for their eorts to make the elections happen. Today there is reason for celebration in Afghanistan, Dempsey said in a state ment. Millions turned out to vote, with Afghan National Security Forces look ing out for the safety of Afghan people as they cast votes at more than 6,000 polling sites. Clearly, this is an important step in the rst democratic transfer of power in Afghanistans history. But todays election did not come without signicant sacrice the sacrice of the Afghan people and many Ameri cans and service members from part ner nations who have been killed and wounded ghting there since 2001, the chairman continued. We look forward to the outcome of the elections and the opportunity to continue to work together, with a willing partner, for a better Af ghanistan. e Afghan people can be proud of their security forces. For months, theyve conducted planning and security operations to ensure that the conditions were set for inclusive elections, Dunford said in an ISAF news release issued today. As the world watched, Afghan National Security Forces provided the opportuni ty for the Afghan people to choose their new president, securing over 6,200 polling centers across the country, the ISAF release said. Soldiers and policemen condently patrolled the cities and countryside to protect innocent civilians and prevent insurgents from disrupting todays elec tions, the ISAF release said, and Afghan voters displayed condence in their army and police, turning out in unprecedented numbers to cast their ballot for the future of Afghanistan. What we saw today as a result of that eort was extraordinary, Dunford said If I won the lottery, I would disappear for a month. I know where I would go but cant tell you because I wouldnt want anybody to find me. I would use the month to decide how I was going to spend the rest of my life. When I reappeared, I probably would fly to my daughters home and give her, my son-in-law and my granddaughter a split before I blew it all. After that, I really dont know. Thats why I would take the month first, to decide the rest. Heres what others said.Finish this sentence: If I won the lottery . .Penny Harper Family member New Orleans I would take care of our family and pay off bills. Then I would go back to Italy.

KouschFrom Coast Guard CompassIn the labyrinth and conuence of ladders, corridors and gangways aboard the 540-foot T. S. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Maritime Academys cadet training ship, it was a hellish close quarters combat training for 15 members from four maritime safety and security teams from Boston, New York, New Orleans and Galveston, Texas. In the chilly shores o Sandwich, Mass., someone joked of how much warmer it was in Texas, but, it sure heated up as soon as the games started and ramped up for a cou ple of hours. Training multiple law enforcement teams simultaneously is a rare and precious opportunity, so this particular event means a lot to the trainees and to unit commanders. Maritime Safety and Security Team Boston Command Senior Chief William P. Kleins role is crucial as one of the train ing observers. MSST Boston and New York had previously worked together; Galves ton and New Orleans the same, said Klein. How ever, the connections ended there. e New York members had never worked with Galveston, New Orleans never with Boston, and so on and so forth, and it didnt matter. Rank insignia was nonexistent. Several members graduated from the Coast Guard Special Mission Training Centers Basic Tactical Operator Course in Camp Lejeune, N.C., where they trained in advanced weapons and close quar ters combat. However, as the hellish event began, BTOC gradu ates performance were barely distinguishable from non-graduates, a tes tament to each units standard training programs and the inevitable result from the teams forming, storming and norm ing phases that unfolded within a compressed twohour timeframe. BTOC really establishes a solid foundation for all Deployable Specialized Force Tactical Operators to employ CQC in a realworld event, said Petty Ocer ird Class Jon W. Sykes of MSST Boston. Honing our skill-set dur ing training opportunities like this is absolutely essential to establish and maintain prociency. e teams were grouped into two Advanced Inter diction Teams: 3, MSST New Orleans and Galves ton; and 5, MSST New York and Boston. AIT-5s major component is currently deployed to U.S. Central Command in support of the Coast Guard Atlantic Areas ongoing participation in anti-piracy operations o the Horn of Africa. AIT-3 is preparing to deploy this spring. Training goals were simple: (1) have each ad vanced interdiction team share their respective standard operating procedures for executing CQC through a crawl, walk, run approach during a basic training evolution and (2) to reinforce and hardwire standard CQC tactics, techniques, procedures and nomenclature taught by SMTC during BTOC back at home base during daily training. Overall, it all came together in one succinct event for one hellish adventure. e gauntlet at hand consisted of executing exterior CQC movement along a weather deck leading to the focal point hitting a complex sys tem of dual stairways ac cessed via two center fed, opposing double doors the guts of the stairway to hell. Surprisingly, the rst evolution went smooth, followed by increasing prociency across the sec ond and third runs. Best practices were shared; self-critiques led to lessons learned and teachable moments. e real win here was the ability for all of us to come together in rapid fashion as a team and compare CQC notes to improve our ability to re spond to a crisis, said Pet ty Ocer 1st Class Oliver Ollie Haeske of MSST Galveston. Impressively, the trainees demonstrated their collective and individual abilities to eectively nav igate several principles specic to the CQC: rapid ly process information, ef fectively deal with a maze of angles, red zones and sectors of re. In fullling the training objectives, the teams were outstanding in seamlessly shifting between deliberate and dynamic CQC movements. Whether direction was given from a seasoned tac tical operator who joined the U. S. Marine Corps in 1989 and participating in Desert Storm before joining the 82nd Airborne which eventually led to his enlistment in the Coast Guard, to a junior Maritime Enforcement Specialist A-school graduate preparing to attend BTOC in a month, success was achieved through mutual exchange of ideas, increasing individual prociency and contributing overall to the teams ability to respond to a non-com pliant boarding. From obscure vantage points throughout the massive ship, observers said the teams jelled through the intensive training. Coast Guard photoMaritime safety and security teams navigate the 540-foot T.
