2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 15, 2014 From Navy Personnel Command Public AffairsDue to the excellent retention and outstanding recruiting success, the Navy is reinstating the Enlisted Early Transition Program, according to a message released May 8. According to NAVADMIN 103/14, EETP allows eligible Sailors in targeted ratings to apply for a voluntary early separation up to 24 months prior to their End of Obligated Service as Extended. e new version of the program is ongoing, quota-controlled, and will help reduce the need for involuntary force management. Early separation will be granted on a rst-come, rst-served basis. Available quotas are identied by rating, paygrade, year group and Navy Enlisted Classication. A list is available at http://www. public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/en listed/community/pages/eetp.aspx. Quotas will be reviewed periodically and updated as required. Early Separation requests will not be approved for the following Sailors: With existing Permanent Change of Station orders, Identied to ll an Individual Augmentee assignment, In nuclear ratings, Assigned to a DoD area tour and have not completed the tour requirement, including overseas tour extension incentive programs for which a benet has been received. Commanding ocers will maintain nal disapproval authority and do not need to forward requests they cannot support. Final approval authority rests with Navy Personnel Command, Performance Evaluation Division, with positive commanding ocer endorsement. By MC1 Greg JohnsonNavy Region Southeast Public AffairsSearching for a new job can be stressful for anybody, but those on the hunt for a federal government position often have a number of questions unique to their own experience and many of those questions are related to the application process through USAJOBS. USAJOBS is a free, web-based job board enabling federal job seekers access to thousands of job opportunities with hundreds of federal agencies and organizations. Prior to 2012, federal government job listings were spread out across a number of individual agencies. President Obama implemented an initiative for one, central location for applicants to go and thats when all agencies went to strictly using USAJOBS to announce their vacancies, said Aqueilla GrimmageSmith, supervisor with the Navy Region Southeast Human Resources Department. e goal is to streamline the job-search process to make it faster and more convenient for people to access government listings. e rst step to access USAJOBS listings is to visit the website at www. usajobs.gov and create a login. Applicants can then create and store up to ve resumes per account, browse listings and apply to jobs for which they meet eligibility requirements. e steps for applying for specic listings are as follows: Locate the Announcement. Job search can be done by agency, occupation, grade, location, etc. Click Apply Online. Select the resume you wish to utilize. Complete the eligibility questionnaire. After uploading all required documents, submit your responses. You will receive an e-mail conrming your submissions According to Grimmage-Smith, it is important for applicants to pay close attention to the eligibility requirements for each listing. Certain listings on USAJOBS are restricted to applicants who meet specic requirements, such as wounded warriors, disabled veterans, active-duty spouses and individuals with disabilities. ese requirements, or appointment authorities, are listed under the Who may apply section of the listing. Many of the eligibility restrictions are geared toward our veterans as a result of the great sacrices they have made during their service, but there is even more to it than that, Grimmage-Smith said. Its about getting the right people into the right positions. Military members are trained and have the specic skillsets we need on many of our military bases. While they have earned their appointment authority through their service, it is also a major advantage to management to be able to hire employees with their experience. Veteran applicants typically fall under four categories: Provisional Appointment of 30 percent or more Compensable Disabled Veterans; Veterans Recruitment Appointment; Veterans Employment Opportunity Authority; and the Wounded Warrior Project. Appointments for compensable disabled veterans and wounded warriors are similar in that candidates from both categories may be appointed non-competitively to positions for which they qualify. Applicants must provide a letter from the Veterans Administration or branch of service documenting a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent or more, SF15 Application for 10-Point Veterans Preference, and DD Form 214 Certicate of Release. Veterans without service-connected disabilities may still meet eligibility requirements for noncompetitive VRA positions up to the GS-11 pay grade. Applicants are VRA-eligible if they have earned a campaign badge, are a disabled veteran, have earned an Armed Forces Service Medal for participation in a military operation. Applicants must provide a VA letter and DD Form 214 to verify eligibility. Veterans may also qualify for appointment under the VEOA. Eligible applicants must have completed at least three years of active-duty service with a separation under honorable conditions. While many USAJOBS appointment authorities apply to veterans, other applicants may still meet requirements for non-competitive positions. Spouses of active duty service members with orders specifying a permanent change of station, spouses of 100-percent disabled service members and spouses of a service member who was killed while performing active duty are also eligible. Eligibility verication requirements can be found under the Who may apply section of the listing. Spouses put their careers on hold to support our service members, so this is an avenue for them to seek employment, Grimmage-Smith said. In a sense, they serve alongside the service member and this tenant commands, base military personnel and civilian employees of the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.

Website oers job opportunities USAJOBS Jacksonville Assistance Office, RLSO SEWhen it comes to renting property, remember Ben Franklins adage an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Most common problems can be prevented or minimized with just a few hours of care while selecting and moving into a property. If this step is neglected, it may be too late to x issues without losing many more hours and hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To protect yourself, follow the tips below. 1. Understand your contractual obligations. Your obligations as a tenant (a person renting real property) should be described in your rental contract. ey typically include paying rent by a certain date, registering vehicles parked on the premises, minimizing noise and disruption to other tenants, performing basic maintenance and upkeep, etc. If you do not perform these obligations, you may be evicted from the premises and charged unpaid rent for the rest of the contract term. Before signing the contract, ensure you understand your obligations. 2. Ensure the contract does not include a waiver of rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. e SCRA gives you the right to terminate a rental contract if you or your active-duty spouse receives permanent change of station orders or orders to deploy for at least 90 days. It prevents you from having to continue paying rent on a property that you had to move out of. You can voluntarily give up this right, by signing a contract including a waiver of SCRA protections. Make sure your contract does not include this waiver. 3. Complete a move-in inspection with the landlord. While the property is still empty of furniture, complete a move-in inspection with the landlord. Note all damages and discrepancies on a piece of paper, and have the landlord sign/date the sheet conrming agreement with the inspection results. Be thorough. Test switches, appliances, electrical outlets, windows, etc. A good move-in inspection will discourage the landlord from trying to charge you for property damage when you nally move out. 4. Get help. Make an appointment with a legal assistance attorney to review the lease. If you have any questions about a rental agreement, please contact your nearest Region Legal Service Oce to set up an appointment with a legal assistance attorney. Oce locations can be found online at www.jag.navy.mil/legal_services/legal_services_locator_rlso. htm. e attorney will assist you with fully understanding not only the contract but also state-specic rental laws and protections that may apply.Take care when entering a lease KB Employer Committee Opportunities limited for early out Personnel Command See Jobs, Page 3

Kings Bay Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 202 members demonstrated a dump truck and two construction Humvees. e kids really enjoy seeing what we do, and seeing some of the equipment that we have, Seabee EO1 Lewis Fahnestock said. A lot of the times they dont get to come on base and see a lot of the stu that we do as Seabees. We get to give them that insight for how we operate and what our duties are. Its a sense of satisfaction because we are giving back to the community and putting smiles on kids faces. eres nothing better than seeing kids happy. A big hit of the day was the military working dogs. Kings Bay Master-at-Arms brought their dogs to give the excited students a glimpse of what they can do. ey saw a series of controlled aggression demonstrations where a military working dog chases down a suspect. In the next phase, the dog grabs the suspect and detains him. Students Kylie Plowski and Clark Dedenedettl both can vouch for the excitement. My favorite thing today was seeing the big dog bite the bad person, Plowksi said. It was really neat! Dedenedettl said dog handler was by far his favorite career. He said he loved seeing both big and small working dogs. Overall, the day was a huge success for the students and provided them with the opportunity to see what kind of careers are available to them. It also gave students the chance to interact with Kings Bays military members who showed them the many dierent jobs. Most importantly, the Career Day highlighted the importance of doing well in school, so when students nish, they will be set up for the future and what they want to do.

Furyk was eventual tournament runner-up, nishing 1 stroke behind winner Martin Kaymer, and earning $1.08 million. e two-hour shower included lunch. All the moms received a Shower in a Box. It was a big box with bottles, diapers, hand-crocheted blankets, onesies, Weckwerth said. I can remember all the things, but it was packed to the brim. ey gave a stroller and car seat to every mother there. ey also gave us a very nice diaper bag. I actually won a bedding set for my crib. When my husband got home, I had everything piled on the oor so he could help me take it upstairs. He said Wow, they really went above and beyond. And they really do go above and beyond with these showers. Even though he didnt attend, Tim Weckwerth said he was grateful for his wifes experience. I would have never ex pected that being a part of Operation Baby Shower would be such a blessing, he said. Its so helpful that someone aside from myself recognized my wife and the incredible strength it takes to go through a birth during a deploy ment. We cant thank them enough for what they have done for us. All-in-all, Operation Shower provided Holly with an experience shell long remember. It was really one of those things that make you feel special, she said. e shower was the 25th hosted by the PGA Tour through Operation Shower. More than 2,000 military mothers have benetted from the program. Operation Shower was established in 2007. 10.

New Master Chiefs By Claudette Roulo American Forces Press ServiceContrary to reports from Russia, there is no evidence of any troop withdrawals from its shared border with Ukraine, Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren said May 7. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced today that he had ordered troops to pull back from the border region to training areas. Despite this announcement, Warren said, we have seen no change in the Russian force posture along the Ukrainian border. We would know, the colonel added. e United States continues its call for Russia to withdraw its troops from the border and to work with the international community to nd a peaceful solution to the crisis, he said.

NSWCDD Commander Capt. Brian Durant presented the Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award to eresa Gennaro for her leadership in the design, development and integration of the Navy Laser Weapon System, slated for deployment aboard USS Ponce later this summer. Im honored to have the opportunity to lead and work alongside these brilliant, hard-working and dedicated scientists, engineers and technicians, Gennaro said. is amazing Laser Weapon System Team designed and developed the initial prototype which has been demonstrated in repeated successes, including the Navys rst ever shoot downs of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) from aboard a U.S. combatant USS Dewey (DDG 105) in 2012, making 12-for-12 total shoot downs in the testing series. Durant presented the award to Gennaro as the audience of more than 220 civilian personnel and Sailors listened to NSWCDD Asymmetric Systems Department Head John Lysher read the citation at the University of Mary Washington Dahlgren campus. rough her direct leadership and work, the Solid State Laser Quick Reaction Capability has continued successful integration and deployment of the Navys rst highenergy laser system in an operational environment onboard a U.S. naval combatant, according to the citation. e deployment on Ponce will prove crucial as the Navy continues its push to provide laser weapons to the eet at large. I am extremely proud of our Laser Weapon Sys tem QRC team and their achievements to date, said Dale Sisson, NSWCDD Electromagnetic and Sen sor Systems Department Head. e team is truly world-class in every sense. Each and every member has gone above and beyond the call of duty, worked long hours, spent extended periods of time away from home, and pushed the en velope of technology to prepare the Navys rst deployable high energy laser weapon for deployment aboard Ponce. Gennaros team will install the prototype, an improved version of the Laser Weapon System, on Ponce for at-sea testing in the Persian Gulf, fullling plans announced by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert at the 2013 Sea-Air-Space Expo. Our team has the experience, knowledge, and passionate drive to reach the goal of delivering a laser weapon system to protect our warghters, Gennaro said. It is a great advantage to build an integrated team and lead this eort at NSWC Dahlgren where experts in multiple areas ranging from laser weapons technology and laser lethality to E3 (electromagnetic environmental eects), ship integration, laser safety, and range testing are all available here on base, enabling us to continue to be the Navys Directed Energy Center of Excellence.Navy photo by John F.

10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 15, 2014 From the Federal Bureau of InvestigationEditors note: is is the second in a two-part series about Nazi saboteurs in America during World War II. Having landed unobserved, the uniforms were quickly discarded, to be buried with the sabotage material which was intended to be later retrieved and civilian clothing was donned. e saboteurs quickly dispersed. e Florida group made their way to Jacksonville, then by train to Cincinnati, with two going on to Chicago and the other pair to New York City. e Long Island group was less fortunate; scarcely had they buried their equipment and uniforms, in fact, one still wore bathing trunks, when a Coast Guardsman patrolling the shore approached. He was unarmed and very suspicious of them, more so when they oered him a bribe to forget they had met. He ostensibly accepted the bribe to lull their fears and promptly reported the incident to his headquarters. However, by the time the search patrol located the spot, the saboteurs had reached a railroad station and had taken a train to New York City. Daschs resolution to be a saboteur for the Fatherland falteredperhaps he thought the whole project so grandiose as to be impractical and wanted to protect himself before some of his companions took action on similar doubts. He indicated to Burger his desire to confess everything. On the evening of June 14, 1942, George Dasch, giving the name Pastorius called the New York Oce of the FBI stating he had recently arrived from Germany and would call FBI Headquarters when he was in Washington, D.C., the following week. On the morning of Friday, June 19, a call was received at the FBI Washington from Dasch, then registered at a Washington hotel. He alluded to his prior call as Pastorius (of which Headquarters was aware) and furnished his location. He was immediately contacted and taken into custody. During the next several days he was thoroughly interrogated and he furnished the identities of the other saboteurs, possible locations for some and data which would enable their more expeditious apprehension. e three remaining members of the Long Island group were picked up in New York City on June 20. Of the Florida group, John Kerling and Werner iel were arrested in New York City on June 23, and Otto Neubauer and Herbert Haupt were arrested in Chicago on June 27. e eight were tried before a military commission, comprised of seven Army ocers appointed by President Roosevelt, from July 8 to August 4, 1942. e trial was held in the Department of Justice Building, Washington, D.C. e prosecution was headed by Attorney General Frances Biddle and the Army Judge Advocate General, Major General Myron C. Cramer. Defense counsel included Colonel Kenneth C. Royall, later Secretary of War under President Truman, and Major Lausen H. Stone, son of Harlan Fiske Stone, the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. All eight were found guilty and sentenced to death. Attorney General Biddle and J. Edgar Hoover appealed to President Roosevelt to commute the sentences of Dasch and Burger. Dasch then received a 30-year sentence, and Burger received a life sentence, both to be served in a federal peni tentiary. e remaining six were executed in the electric chair at the District of Columbia Jail on August 8, 1942. e eight men had been born in Germany and each had lived in the United States for substantial periods. Burger had become a naturalized American in 1933. Haupt had entered the United States as a child, gaining citizenship when his father was naturalized in 1930. Dasch had joined the Germany army at the age of 14 and served about 11 months as a clerk during the conclusion of World War I. He had enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1927 and received an honorable discharge after a little more than a year of service. Quirin and Heinck had returned to Germany prior to the outbreak of World War II in Europe, and the six others subsequent to September 11, 1939 and before December 7, 1941 apparently feeling their rst loyalty was to the country of their birth. Postwar debrieng of German personnel and examination of records conrmed that no other attempt was made to land sabo teurs by submarine; though in late 1944, two persons, William Cur tis Colepaugh and Erich Gimpel, were landed as spies from a German submarine on the coast of Maine in a rather desperate attempt to secure information. ey, too, were quickly apprehended by the FBI before accomplishing any part of their mission. In April, 1948, President Truman granted executive clemency to Dasch and Burger on condition of deportation. ey were transported to the American Zone of Germany, the unexecuted portions of their sentences were suspended upon such conditions with respect to travel, employment, political and other activities as the eater commander might require, and they were freed. Although many allegations of sabotage were investigated by the FBI during World War II, not one instance was found of enemy-inspired sabotage. Every suspect act traced to its source was the result of vandalism, pique, resentment, a desire for relief from boredom, the curiosity of children to see what would happen or other personal motive.When the Nazis landed in Ponte Vedra Beach Army Signal Corps photoThe trial for the captured German saboteurs was in July, 1942. All eight were sentenced to death, but two had their sentences commuted and were later released. Burger Dasch By Sgt. Jessica OstroskaMarine Expeditionary Brigade, Afghanistan Soldiers with the 215th Corps, Afghan National Army conducted D-30 122 mm howitzer training aboard Camp Bastion, Helmand province, Afghanistan, May 7. e training is part of a six-week course that gives Afghan instructors the opportunity to train their fellow soldiers on the howitzer weapons system. Prior to the course, the soldiers are assigned one of three roles required to operating the D-30. ey either become a gun lineman, forward observer or become part of the re direction cell. All three trades must uidly work together to ensure the howitzer operates properly and eectively. Each job has a role in ensuring the accuracy of the D-30. e gun linemen are responsible for setting up the weapon system, ensuring it is level, loading the artillery for ring, and making proper ring adjustments based on the data they receive. e role of the forward observers is to gather and relay target information to direct artillery re. e forward observers pass this information to the re direction cell. Once the re direction cell receives the information from the forward observers, they are responsible for converting that into data to pass to the gun linemen to use for ring the howitzer. It is important we teach this structure to the Afghan soldiers because they need to understand it all, by the book, to operate the howitzer correctly, said Bombardier Edward Toma, British Army instructor with Regional Corps Battle School, Regional Command (Southwest). ey need to learn it well so they can eventually carry out their own operations without the support of the International Security Assistance Force. is structure also helps with making the artillery being red more eective, more ecient and accurate. e Afghan instructors, who were students themselves not too long ago, are now responsible for training their fellow soldiers. Afghan National Army Lt. Shahedullah, a gun line instructor with 215th Corps, RCBS, who was recently a student himself, said he was grateful for the coalition instructors patience when teaching him and passing on all of their knowledge of the weapon system when he attended the training. ey trained us very well, Shahedullah said. It was very important that I learned everything and made sure I understood it all because now it is my turn to teach. I feel condent in my training, and that I can teach these students well because of everything I have learned from my instructors. Afghan National Army Sta Sgt. Jumakhan, a gun lineman student with 215th Corps, said his Afghan instructors are doing a good job at teaching them how to work the weapon system. is is good for us to learn, Jumakhan said. I need to learn all this to protect my country. ey are teaching me so I can go back to my unit and will be able to teach and share my knowledge with my fellow soldiers. Learning is important for everyone. We must learn all we can to make our country and ourselves better and stay ahead of the enemy.Marine Corps photo by Sgt.

Eighteen months ago, the Laser Weapon System Team was challenged to do something that had never been done before, a task that many senior leaders stated was impossible, said Cmdr. Vincent Chernesky, NAVSEA PMS 405 Deputy Program Manager. eresa Gennaro led the technical team at NSWC Dahlgren through a breakneck development cycle, sacricing personal time towards a common goal they all believed in, that naval laser weapons are a reality, and the future of naval weaponry. Over the past several months, Gennaros 65-member team Navy engineers and scientists working with experts from industry and academia signicantly upgraded the Laser Weapon System. I cannot laud her and the Laser Weapon System Team enough for their heroic eorts, Chernesky said. Now, they are busy making nal adjustments to the rst of its kind laser weapon prototype. is team has incredible perseverance and they are a pleasure to work with, Gennaro said. e opportunity to take part in delivering such an advanced concept to protect our warghter is a career highlight. Using a video game-like controller, Sailors will be able to manage the lasers power to accomplish a range of eects against a threat, from disabling to complete destruction. It is especially rewarding to see our civilian team working hand-in-hand with our warfighters to develop, demonstrate, and deliver this game-changing capability, Sisson said. Navy leaders have made directed-energy weapons a top priority to counter what they call asymmetric threats, including unmanned and light aircraft and small attack boats that could be used to deny U.S. forces access to certain areas. High-energy lasers oer an aordable and safe way to target these threats at the speed of light with extreme precision and an unlimited magazine, experts say.LaserFrom Page 9 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 15, 2014 11

By MCC Julianne MetzgerNavy News ServiceChief of Naval Operations Jonathan Greenert testied before the Senate Armed Services Committee May 6 encouraging Congress to accept and implement the Department of Defense budget proposal recommendation to slow growth of service members pay and compensation. We cannot sustain our current personnel cost trajectory, Greenert said. We need to address this problem sooner rather than later. Greenert said both he and Master Chief Petty Ofcer of the Nav Mike Stevens heard in their travels around the eet, a vast majority of Sailors and families believe that their compensation matches well with their civilian counterparts. Since 2001, Navy manpower has shrunk signicantly due to the elimination of 25 ships from the eet. Meanwhile rising personnel costs have spiked which have been a burden on the Navys ability to balance investments, Greenert said. Our Sailors and families are not enthusiastic about compensation reform, said Greenert. However, he added, they were clear that their quality of service, their work environment, needs to improve. e DOD proposed compensation reforms are estimated to generate a savings to the Navy of $123 million in scal year 2015 and $3.1 billion over the Future Years Defense Plan. I intend to reinvest any and all of these savings into Sailor Quality of Service enhancements, Greenert said. Greenert said quality of service enhancements resulting from proposed budget savings include: increasing sea pay, critical skills incentive pays; improving and constructing barracks, training buildings, MWR and tness centers; providing school and trainings; purchasing tactical trainers and simulators; purchasing spare parts, tools and providing more maintenance opportunities. All of these reinvestments address dissatisers in our Sailors quality of service, Greenert said. ese enhancements help Sailors get their jobs done eectively and safely, while addressing our critical manning, training and equipping challenges. If Congress denies authority for the DOD compensation savings proposals, the Navy would be unable to enact Sailor quality of service improvements. ere would also be an additional bill of $4 billion resulting from pay raises. Greenert said that would compel the Navy to reduce readiness, shipbuilding and aircraft procurement even further. Our Navy would be less ready, less modern and less able to execute the missions outlined in the Defense Strategic Guidance, Greenert said. During the hearing it was evident these budget decisions are tough but necessary, Greenert ex plained. Under the current budget these choices are necessary to better balance Sailors needs to ensure the Navy remains forward and ready, he said. From Coast Guard CompassBuilt during the twilight era of sail, Coast Guard Cutter Eagles construc tion embodies centuries of development in the art and history of shipbuilding. ese days, the teak deck of the barque serves as a tting platform for the time-honored tradition of the Ancient Mariner ceremony. e Ancient Mariner is a ceremonial title given to the ocer and enlisted person with the earliest date of qualication as a cutterman. e rst ancient title was given in 1966 as a way for the Coast Guard to pay respects to its most experienced members, but it wasnt until 1978, that the Gold and Silver Ancient Mariner titles were established to honor the ocer and enlisted Coast Guard cuttermen with the most sea time. While being an ancient is an honorary position, those who earn the title represent a living link to Coast Guard history. ey serve as a re minder of the call to duty on the high seas. e spirit of centuries of our fellow Coast Guardsmen and their forebears, who have met the sea and conquered it, or have gone to their Maker while trying, is keeping watch with you, the Ancient Mariner. Keeping a sharp eye out to ensure their tradition is continued and the time-honored reputation of the Coast Guard is kept intact, wrote Coast Guard Commandant James S. Graceyin 1984 in the An cient Mariners Log, which is passed down from one Ancient Mariner to another. e phrase pass the torch is often used when one person passes on responsibility to another. At the ancient ceremony, a torch took the form of the Ancient Mariners Log and a nautical long glass. Handing o the long glass at the May 2 ceremony was Master Chief Petty Ocer Lloyd Pierce, the 11th Silver Ancient Mariner. He was relieved by Master Chief Petty Ocer Steven Cantrell, now the 12th Silver Ancient Mariner. Passing on the log was Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp, the 13th Gold Ancient Mariner. As both commandant and Gold Ancient Mariner, Papp was in a unique position to advocate for new platforms for future generations of cuttermen. Serving as Ancient Mariner was an honor and a privilege, said the Commandant. Im most proud of the eet recapitalization success and prociency improvements that have occurred on my watch and I wish Admiral Midgette continued success. Rear Adm. Fred Midgette, who assumed the duties as the 14th Gold Ancient Mariner, now holds the log. It is as place where the ancients can leave behind words of wisdom, words that ensure the time-honored reputation of the Coast Guard is maintained. After the ceremony, Midgette shared his thoughts about his role as ancient; his role in paying tribute to those who came before him. Sea duty has always been a demanding and dangerous business. It was in the past it is today, said Midgette the 9th Coast Guard District commander who is both a cutterman and a U.S. Navy surface warfare ofcer. Midgette has served more than 12 years aoat aboard seven Coast Guard cutters and a Navy destroyer. ere are 1,266 names on the Cuttermans Memorial that remind us of the dangers, added Midgette. In spite of that danger, sea service continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences that the Coast Guard has to offer.

Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Chris Murphy, New London Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio, Vice President of Cross Sound Ferry Adam Wronowski, Conn. Gov. Daniel Malloy and Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp dipped their shovels into the soil, signifying the beginning of what will be a tremendous physical transformation to the New London waterfront area, where the future National Coast Guard Museum will reside. While the gesture of breaking ground is symbolic, the emotions of the event were genuine. Today marks yet another important milestone in our continuing progress towards establishing a National Coast Guard Museum, said the Commandant. I am very thankful for the eorts of ev eryone involved to honor our Long Blue Line of Coast Guard men and women who sacriced during war and peace since the founding of our Republic to protect and defend the United States of America. e Coast Guards history and heritage has been as mobile as its missions, woven into the honor and tradition as a military service, and displayed with pride at modest facilities throughout the Coast Guard. e deed transfer and ground breaking at the future site of a National Coast Guard Museum marks yet another milestone in reaching the National Coast Guard Museum Associations ultimate goal to provide a more permanent and comprehensive home to Coast Guard history; a home to inform and inspire those that the Coast Guard serves. President of the board of directors of the National Coast Guard Museum Association and recent Spirit of Hope recipient James Jimmy Coleman Jr. armed his loyalty to the collaborative eort, we are ready to go, and we have been ready to go; so were using that energy. e National Coast Guard Museum Association was formed to establish, develop, foster and perpetuate the National Coast Guard Museum which will serve to promote historical knowledge of the Coast Guard and its predecessor services among the present and past member of the service and among the general public, and to promote an awareness, recognition and pride the their role in the maritime heritage of the United States. e property to be used for construction was gifted to the Coast Guard by the city of New London. Mayor Finizio passed the signed document to the Commandant adding it is my honor to present to you the deed and title of land in our city for the purpose of construction of the National United States Coast Guard Museum. At an event that occurred earlier in the day, the Commandant passed the honor of Gold Ancient Mariner to Rear Adm. Fred Midgette. e ceremony included the passing of the Ancient Mariners cap as a symbol to signal the change of watch. e hat currently used is a replica, as the original, a 1913 fore-and-aft made of beaver fur and worn during the era of the Revenue Cutter Service, is too delicate a relic to be physically worn. e Commandant then carefully held the original artifact for the audience to see, now if only we had a museum to put this in.Coast Guard photo by PO2 Patrick KelleyThe Coast Guard Honor Guard performs at the breaking ground ceremony for the National Coast Guard Museum.Guardians to get museum Navy photo by MC2 Martin L.

14 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 15, 2014 Ethics center opensFrom U.S. Naval War College Public AffairsInstructors and sta of the new Naval Leadership and Ethics Center celebrated the establishment of their command during a ribbon cutting ceremony in Newport, R.I., May 6. Aligned as an echelon three command under U.S. Naval War College as of May 1, the NLEC will serve as the Navy and NWCs instrument to provide curric ulum development along with assessment to instill fundamental tenets of ethical leadership throughout the Navy; develop and guide leaders with a strong abiding sense of respon sibility, authority, and ac countability; and impart commitment of Navy Core Values and Navy Ethos to Sailors. With resources and personnel from the former Command Leadership School in Newport, the Navys vision for the new organization is to create courses and educational material that will have an impact across the eet for leader development and ethical decision making. As a school house, NLEC will also continue leadership education for future members of the command leadership triad command master chiefs or chiefs of the boat, executive ocers and commanding ocers. Capt. Mark Johnson, NLEC commanding ocer, reected on the benets that the organization will provide for the Navys Leader Development Continuum, which provides a common framework for leader development through professional experience, training, education, and personal development. Weve been given a tremendous opportunity to build something important and enduring for our profession, Johnson said. Were excited and honored to have that opportunity. I can think of no higher calling than helping to develop leaders for our Navy. Educating Sailors at all levels in leadership and character has been a cornerstone of Navy education and training, and those attributes are vitally important dimensions that dene the Navys people and what they do throughout their service. e establishment of NLEC signies an increased investment and commitment of the Navys most valuable asset, our people, said Rear Adm. Walter E. Ted Carter Jr., president, NWC. is serves as an opportunity to take a more proactive approach in improving a culture of character development in conjunction with continued command leader education. Our goal is improved leader development. Since January 2014, NWC and the former CLS faculty and sta have been working meticulously to execute this vision. is is an incredible accomplishment and I trust we will succeed in executing these new responsibilities educating our ofcers and enlisted across all warfare communities, sta corps, and sub-specialties in a wide range of leadership and ethical issues across the Fleet, said Carter.Navy photo by MCC Robert InversoSecretary of the Navy Ray Mabus addresses an audience at the Naval War College.

Leap Frogs wow crowds By MC1 Fletcher GibsonNavy Parachute Team public affairse Navy Parachute Team, the Leap Frogs, toured the greater St. Louis area April 29 through May 1, making multiple demonstration jumps as part of St. Louis Navy Week. Shows were held at Busch Stadium to help open the Cardinals/Brewers game, as well as a number of high schools on both sides of the Mississippi River. e Frogs even teamed up with explosive ordnance disposal technicians and the Navy Band for an appearance at St. Louis City Museum. is was really amazing, said Joe, a student at Alton High School, after the demonstration jump at his campus. I really liked it, but I was surprised to see it happen at my school. e surprise felt by Joe and hundreds of other students like him illustrates the importance of performances by the Leap Frogs in demonstrating thebNavys capabilities to people who live far from the ocean. For these people, and especially these kids, who dont have daily contact with the Navy, its important for us to get out there, show them what were about and answer all of their questions, said Leap Frogs team chief, Chief Special Warfare Operator Brad Woodard. e demonstrations in St. Louis extended beyond military capabilities; they also carried a lesson on the importance of applied science. Jumps next to the St. Louis Science Center and equipment demonstrations at the City Museum gave those interested an inside look at some of the science that goes into the military and precision parachuting. One inventive teacher was even able to incorporate the Leap Frogs performance into her lessons. We have a parachute lab in physics class as an engineering project, said science teacher Pamela Wahl. Were doing it right now. e Leap Frogs are based in San Diego and perform aerial parachute demonstrations in support of Naval Special Warfare and Navy recruiting. e team is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, having been commissioned by the Chief of Naval Operations in 1974 and tasked with demonstrating Naval excellence around the country. e Navy Parachute Team will be seen next at the X-Games in Austin June 5 to 8.

Bush Strike Group (CVN 77) Public Affairse Guided-missile destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG 80) hosted the family of the ships namesake, May 2. Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelts grandson, H. Delano Roosevelt, took a tour of Roosevelt with family and friends during a scheduled port visit in Manama, Bahrain. e tour was led by Cmdr. Jay Clark, Roosevelts commanding ocer. Sailors from the crew gave presentations about the various departments and capabilities of the ship including bridge fundamen tals, navigation, engineering, damage con trol, aviation, search and rescue, and visit, board, search and seizure operations. It was an honor and a privilege to introduce USS Roosevelt to Mr. Roosevelt, said Cmdr. Jay Clark. e crew, as well as myself, take immense pride in being Roosevelt Sailors. I am sure that the grandson of our namesake saw that pride and knew we were honoring the legacy Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt left behind. After the tour, Clark led the group into the wardroom, where ocers were assembled to attend the Surface Warfare Ocer designation pinning of Chief Warrant Ocer James Smith. As a surprise, Smith bestowed the honor of pinning the SWO device to Mr. Roosevelt. It was dynamic, said Smith. To have the grandson of such a great man and woman, the namesakes of our ship, perform the pinning is a once in a lifetime occurrence I will never forget. Following the pinning, Cmdr. Clark presented Mr. Roosevelt with Roosevelt memorabilia including a signed picture of the ship. In return, Mr. Roosevelt presented Cmdr. Clark with a coin from the battleship USS Iowa, which his family has been inuential in helping to restore as a historical monument in Long Beach, Calif., where H. Delano Roosevelt and his family call home.

By MC1 Greg JohnsonNavy Region Southeast Public AffairsSearching for a new job can be stressful for anybody, but those on the hunt for a federal government position often have a number of questions unique to their own expe rience and many of those questions are related to the application pro cess through USAJOBS. USAJOBS is a free, web-based job board enabling federal job seekers access to thousands of job oppor tunities with hundreds of federal agencies and organizations. Prior to 2012, federal government job listings were spread out across a number of individual agencies. President Obama implemented an initiative for one, central loca tion for applicants to go and thats when all agencies went to strictly us ing USAJOBS to announce their va cancies, said Aqueilla GrimmageSmith, supervisor with the Navy Region Southeast Human Resources Department. e goal is to stream line the job-search process to make it faster and more convenient for people to access government list ings. e rst step to access USAJOBS listings is to visit the website at www. usajobs.gov and create a login. Applicants can then create and store up to ve resumes per account, browse listings and apply to jobs for which they meet eligibility require ments. e steps for applying for specic listings are as follows: Locate the Announcement. Job search can be done by agency, occu pation, grade, location, etc. Click Apply Online. Select the resume you wish to utilize. Complete the eligibility ques tionnaire. After uploading all required doc uments, submit your responses. You will receive an e-mail con rming your submissions According to Grimmage-Smith, it is important for applicants to pay close attention to the eligibility requirements for each listing. Certain listings on USAJOBS are restricted to applicants who meet specic requirements, such as wounded warriors, disabled vet erans, active-duty spouses and individuals with disabilities. ese requirements, or appointment au thorities, are listed under the Who may apply section of the listing. Many of the eligibility restric tions are geared toward our veter ans as a result of the great sacrices they have made during their service, but there is even more to it than that, Grimmage-Smith said. Its about getting the right people into the right positions. Military mem bers are trained and have the specic skillsets we need on many of our military bases. While they have earned their appointment author ity through their service, it is also a major advantage to management to be able to hire employees with their experience. Veteran applicants typically fall under four categories: Provisional Appointment of 30 percent or more Compensable Disabled Veterans; Veterans Recruitment Appointment; Veterans Employment Opportunity Authority; and the Wounded War rior Project. Appointments for compensable disabled veterans and wounded warriors are similar in that candidates from both categories may be appointed non-competitively to po sitions for which they qualify. Applicants must provide a letter from the Veterans Administration or branch of service documenting a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent or more, SF15 Application for 10-Point Veterans Preference, and DD Form 214 Cer ticate of Release. Veterans without service-connected disabilities may still meet eligibility requirements for noncompetitive VRA positions up to the GS-11 pay grade. Applicants are VRA-eligible if they have earned a campaign badge, are a disabled veteran, have earned an Armed Forces Service Medal for participation in a military operation. Applicants must provide a VA let ter and DD Form 214 to verify eligi bility. Veterans may also qualify for appointment under the VEOA. Eligible applicants must have completed at least three years of active-duty ser vice with a separation under honor able conditions. While many USAJOBS appoint ment authorities apply to veterans, other applicants may still meet re quirements for non-competitive po sitions. Spouses of active duty service members with orders specifying a permanent change of station, spous es of 100-percent disabled service members and spouses of a service member who was killed while per forming active duty are also eligible. Eligibility verication require ments can be found under the Who may apply section of the listing. Spouses put their careers on hold to support our service members, so this is an avenue for them to seek employment, Grimmage-Smith said. In a sense, they serve along side the service member and this tenant commands, base military personnel and civilian employees of the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.

Your obligations as a tenant (a person renting real prop erty) should be described in your rental contract. ey typically in clude paying rent by a certain date, registering vehicles parked on the premises, minimizing noise and dis ruption to other tenants, performing basic maintenance and upkeep, etc. If you do not perform these obliga tions, you may be evicted from the premises and charged unpaid rent for the rest of the contract term. Before signing the contract, ensure you understand your obligations. 2. Ensure the contract does not include a waiver of rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. e SCRA gives you the right to terminate a rental contract if you or your active-duty spouse receives permanent change of station orders or orders to deploy for at least 90 days. It prevents you from having to continue paying rent on a property that you had to move out of. You can voluntarily give up this right, by signing a contract including a waiv er of SCRA protections. Make sure your contract does not include this waiver. 3. Complete a move-in inspec tion with the landlord. While the property is still empty of furniture, complete a move-in inspection with the landlord. Note all damages and discrepancies on a piece of paper, and have the landlord sign/date the sheet conrming agreement with the inspection results. Be thorough. Test switches, appliances, electri cal outlets, windows, etc. A good move-in inspection will discourage the landlord from trying to charge you for property damage when you nally move out. 4. Get help. Make an appointment with a legal assistance attorney to review the lease. If you have any questions about a rental agreement, please contact your nearest Region Legal Service Oce to set up an appointment with a legal assistance attorney. Oce locations can be found on line at www.jag.navy.mil/legal_ser vices/legal_services_locator_rlso. htm. e attorney will assist you with fully understanding not only the contract but also state-specic rent al laws and protections that may ap ply.Take care when entering a lease KB Employer Committee Opportunities limited for early out Personnel Command See Jobs, Page 3

10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 15, 2014 From the Federal Bureau of InvestigationEditors note: is is the second in a two-part series about Nazi saboteurs in America during World War II. Having landed unobserved, the uniforms were quickly discarded, to be buried with the sabo tage material which was intended to be later retrieved and civilian clothing was donned. e saboteurs quickly dispersed. e Florida group made their way to Jacksonville, then by train to Cincinnati, with two going on to Chicago and the other pair to New York City. e Long Island group was less fortunate; scarcely had they buried their equipment and uniforms, in fact, one still wore bathing trunks, when a Coast Guardsman patrolling the shore approached. He was unarmed and very suspicious of them, more so when they oered him a bribe to forget they had met. He ostensibly accepted the bribe to lull their fears and promptly reported the incident to his headquar ters. However, by the time the search patrol located the spot, the saboteurs had reached a railroad station and had taken a train to New York City. Daschs resolution to be a saboteur for the Father land falteredperhaps he thought the whole project so grandiose as to be impractical and wanted to protect himself before some of his companions took action on similar doubts. He indicated to Burger his desire to confess everything. On the evening of June 14, 1942, George Dasch, giving the name Pasto rius called the New York Oce of the FBI stating he had recently arrived from Germany and would call FBI Headquarters when he was in Washington, D.C., the following week. On the morning of Fri day, June 19, a call was received at the FBI Washington from Dasch, then registered at a Washington hotel. He alluded to his prior call as Pastorius (of which Headquarters was aware) and furnished his location. He was immediately contacted and taken into custody. During the next several days he was thoroughly interrogated and he fur nished the identities of the other saboteurs, possible locations for some and data which would enable their more expeditious apprehension. e three remaining members of the Long Is land group were picked up in New York City on June 20. Of the Florida group, John Kerling and Werner iel were arrested in New York City on June 23, and Otto Neubauer and Her bert Haupt were arrested in Chicago on June 27. e eight were tried before a military commis sion, comprised of seven Army ocers appointed by President Roosevelt, from July 8 to August 4, 1942. e trial was held in the Department of Justice Building, Washington, D.C. e prosecution was headed by Attorney General Frances Biddle and the Army Judge Advocate General, Major General Myron C. Cramer. Defense counsel included Colonel Kenneth C. Royall, later Secretary of War under President Truman, and Major Lausen H. Stone, son of Harlan Fiske Stone, the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. All eight were found guilty and sentenced to death. Attorney General Biddle and J. Edgar Hoover appealed to President Roo sevelt to commute the sentences of Dasch and Burger. Dasch then received a 30-year sentence, and Burger received a life sen tence, both to be served in a federal peni tentiary. e remaining six were executed in the electric chair at the District of Co lumbia Jail on August 8, 1942. e eight men had been born in Germany and each had lived in the United States for substantial periods. Burger had become a naturalized American in 1933. Haupt had entered the United States as a child, gaining citizenship when his father was natu ralized in 1930. Dasch had joined the Germany army at the age of 14 and served about 11 months as a clerk during the conclusion of World War I. He had enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1927 and re ceived an honorable dis charge after a little more than a year of service. Quirin and Heinck had returned to Germany prior to the outbreak of World War II in Europe, and the six others subsequent to September 11, 1939 and before December 7, 1941 apparently feeling their rst loyalty was to the country of their birth. Postwar debrieng of German personnel and examination of records conrmed that no other attempt was made to land sabo teurs by submarine; though in late 1944, two per sons, William Cur tis Colepaugh and Erich Gimpel, were landed as spies from a German sub marine on the coast of Maine in a rather desper ate attempt to secure in formation. ey, too, were quickly apprehended by the FBI before accomplishing any part of their mission. In April, 1948, President Truman granted executive clemency to Dasch and Burger on condition of deportation. ey were transported to the American Zone of Germany, the unexecuted portions of their sentenc es were suspended upon such conditions with respect to travel, employ ment, political and other activities as the eater commander might require, and they were freed. Although many allegations of sabotage were investigated by the FBI during World War II, not one instance was found of enemy-inspired sabotage. Every suspect act traced to its source was the re sult of vandalism, pique, resentment, a desire for relief from boredom, the curiosity of children to see what would happen or other personal motive.When the Nazis landed in Ponte Vedra Beach Army Signal Corps photoThe trial for the captured German saboteurs was in July, 1942. All eight were sen tenced to death, but two had their sentences commuted and were later released. Burger Dasch By Sgt. Jessica OstroskaMarine Expeditionary Brigade, Afghanistan Soldiers with the 215th Corps, Afghan National Army conducted D-30 122 mm howitzer training aboard Camp Bas tion, Helmand province, Afghanistan, May 7. e training is part of a six-week course that gives Afghan instructors the oppor tunity to train their fellow soldiers on the howitzer weapons system.

Once the re direction cell receives the information from the forward observers, they are responsible for converting that into data to pass to the gun linemen to use for ring the howitzer. It is important we teach this structure to the Afghan soldiers because they need to understand it all, by the book, to oper ate the howitzer correctly, said Bombar dier Edward Toma, British Army instruc tor with Regional Corps Battle School, Regional Command (Southwest). ey need to learn it well so they can even tually carry out their own operations without the support of the International Security Assistance Force. is structure also helps with making the artillery being red more eective, more ecient and accurate. e Afghan instructors, who were students themselves not too long ago, are now responsible for training their fellow soldiers. Afghan National Army Lt. Shahedullah, a gun line instructor with 215th Corps, RCBS, who was recently a student him self, said he was grateful for the coalition instructors patience when teaching him and passing on all of their knowledge of the weapon system when he attended the training. ey trained us very well, Shahedullah said. It was very important that I learned everything and made sure I un derstood it all because now it is my turn to teach. I feel condent in my training, and that I can teach these students well because of everything I have learned from my instructors. Afghan National Army Sta Sgt. Jumak han, a gun lineman student with 215th Corps, said his Afghan instructors are doing a good job at teaching them how to work the weapon system. is is good for us to learn, Jumakhan said. I need to learn all this to protect my country. ey are teaching me so I can go back to my unit and will be able to teach and share my knowledge with my fellow soldiers. Learning is important for everyone. We must learn all we can to make our country and ourselves better and stay ahead of the enemy.Marine Corps photo by Sgt.

By MCC Julianne MetzgerNavy News ServiceChief of Naval Opera tions Jonathan Greenert testied before the Senate Armed Services Committee May 6 encouraging Congress to accept and implement the Depart ment of Defense budget proposal recommendation to slow growth of ser vice members pay and compensation. We cannot sustain our current personnel cost trajectory, Greenert said. We need to address this problem sooner rather than later. Greenert said both he and Master Chief Petty Of cer of the Nav Mike Ste vens heard in their travels around the eet, a vast majority of Sailors and families believe that their compensation matches well with their civilian counterparts. Since 2001, Navy man power has shrunk signicantly due to the elimination of 25 ships from the eet. Meanwhile rising per sonnel costs have spiked which have been a bur den on the Navys ability to balance investments, Greenert said. Our Sailors and families are not enthusias tic about compensation reform, said Greenert. However, he added, they were clear that their qual ity of service, their work environment, needs to improve. e DOD proposed compensation reforms are estimated to generate a savings to the Navy of $123 million in scal year 2015 and $3.1 billion over the Future Years Defense Plan. I intend to reinvest any and all of these sav ings into Sailor Quality of Service enhancements, Greenert said. Greenert said quality of service enhancements resulting from proposed budget savings include: increasing sea pay, critical skills incentive pays; improving and constructing barracks, training buildings, MWR and tness centers; providing school and trainings; purchasing tactical trainers and simu lators; purchasing spare parts, tools and providing more maintenance oppor tunities. All of these reinvest ments address dissatis ers in our Sailors quality of service, Greenert said. ese enhancements help Sailors get their jobs done eectively and safely, while addressing our critical manning, training and equipping challenges. If Congress denies au thority for the DOD com pensation savings proposals, the Navy would be unable to enact Sailor quality of service improvements. ere would also be an additional bill of $4 billion resulting from pay raises. Greenert said that would compel the Navy to reduce readiness, shipbuilding and aircraft procurement even further. Our Navy would be less ready, less modern and less able to execute the missions outlined in the Defense Strategic Guidance, Greenert said. During the hearing it was evident these budget decisions are tough but necessary, Greenert ex plained. Under the current budget these choices are necessary to better balance Sailors needs to ensure the Navy remains forward and ready, he said. From Coast Guard CompassBuilt during the twilight era of sail, Coast Guard Cutter Eagles construc tion embodies centuries of development in the art and history of shipbuilding. ese days, the teak deck of the barque serves as a tting platform for the time-honored tradition of the Ancient Mariner cer emony. e Ancient Mariner is a ceremonial title given to the ocer and enlisted person with the earliest date of qualication as a cutterman. e rst ancient title was given in 1966 as a way for the Coast Guard to pay respects to its most expe rienced members, but it wasnt until 1978, that the Gold and Silver Ancient Mariner titles were estab lished to honor the ocer and enlisted Coast Guard cuttermen with the most sea time. While being an ancient is an honorary position, those who earn the title represent a living link to Coast Guard history. ey serve as a re minder of the call to duty on the high seas. e spirit of centuries of our fellow Coast Guards men and their forebears, who have met the sea and conquered it, or have gone to their Maker while trying, is keeping watch with you, the Ancient Mari ner. Keeping a sharp eye out to ensure their tradi tion is continued and the time-honored reputation of the Coast Guard is kept intact, wrote Coast Guard Commandant James S. Graceyin 1984 in the An cient Mariners Log, which is passed down from one Ancient Mariner to an other. e phrase pass the torch is often used when one person passes on re sponsibility to another. At the ancient ceremony, a torch took the form of the Ancient Mariners Log and a nautical long glass. Handing o the long glass at the May 2 ceremo ny was Master Chief Petty Ocer Lloyd Pierce, the 11th Silver Ancient Mari ner. He was relieved by Master Chief Petty Ocer Steven Cantrell, now the 12th Silver Ancient Mari ner. Passing on the log was Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp, the 13th Gold Ancient Mariner. As both commandant and Gold Ancient Mari ner, Papp was in a unique position to advocate for new platforms for future generations of cuttermen. Serving as Ancient Mariner was an honor and a privilege, said the Commandant. Im most proud of the eet recapitalization success and prociency improvements that have occurred on my watch and I wish Admiral Midgette continued suc cess. Rear Adm. Fred Midg ette, who assumed the duties as the 14th Gold Ancient Mariner, now holds the log. It is as place where the ancients can leave behind words of wis dom, words that ensure the time-honored reputation of the Coast Guard is maintained. After the cer emony, Midgette shared his thoughts about his role as ancient; his role in pay ing tribute to those who came before him. Sea duty has always been a demanding and dangerous business. It was in the past it is today, said Midgette the 9th Coast Guard District commander who is both a cutterman and a U.S. Navy surface warfare of cer. Midgette has served more than 12 years aoat aboard seven Coast Guard cutters and a Navy de stroyer. ere are 1,266 names on the Cuttermans Me morial that remind us of the dangers, added Midg ette. In spite of that dan ger, sea service continues to be one of the most re warding experiences that the Coast Guard has to of fer.

Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Chris Murphy, New London Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio, Vice President of Cross Sound Ferry Adam Wronowski, Conn. Gov. Daniel Malloy and Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp dipped their shovels into the soil, signifying the beginning of what will be a tremendous physical transfor mation to the New London waterfront area, where the future National Coast Guard Museum will reside. While the gesture of breaking ground is symbolic, the emotions of the event were genuine. Today marks yet another important milestone in our continuing progress towards establishing a National Coast Guard Museum, said the Commandant. I am very thankful for the eorts of ev eryone involved to honor our Long Blue Line of Coast Guard men and women who sacriced during war and peace since the founding of our Republic to protect and defend the United States of America. e Coast Guards history and heritage has been as mobile as its missions, woven into the honor and tradition as a military service, and displayed with pride at mod est facilities throughout the Coast Guard. e deed transfer and ground break ing at the future site of a National Coast Guard Museum marks yet another mile stone in reaching the National Coast Guard Museum Associations ultimate goal to provide a more permanent and comprehensive home to Coast Guard history; a home to inform and inspire those that the Coast Guard serves. President of the board of directors of the National Coast Guard Museum Association and recent Spirit of Hope recipi ent James Jimmy Coleman Jr. armed his loyalty to the collaborative eort, we are ready to go, and we have been ready to go; so were using that energy. e National Coast Guard Museum As sociation was formed to establish, develop, foster and perpetuate the National Coast Guard Museum which will serve to promote historical knowledge of the Coast Guard and its predecessor services among the present and past member of the service and among the general pub lic, and to promote an awareness, rec ognition and pride the their role in the maritime heritage of the United States. e property to be used for construc tion was gifted to the Coast Guard by the city of New London. Mayor Finizio passed the signed docu ment to the Commandant adding it is my honor to present to you the deed and title of land in our city for the purpose of construction of the National United States Coast Guard Museum. At an event that occurred earlier in the day, the Commandant passed the honor of Gold Ancient Mariner to Rear Adm. Fred Midgette. e ceremony included the passing of the Ancient Mariners cap as a symbol to signal the change of watch. e hat currently used is a replica, as the original, a 1913 fore-and-aft made of beaver fur and worn during the era of the Revenue Cutter Service, is too delicate a relic to be physically worn. e Commandant then carefully held the original artifact for the audience to see, now if only we had a museum to put this in.Coast Guard photo by PO2 Patrick KelleyThe Coast Guard Honor Guard performs at the breaking ground ceremony for the National Coast Guard Museum.Guardians to get museum Navy photo by MC2 Martin L.

Aligned as an echelon three command under U.S. Naval War College as of May 1, the NLEC will serve as the Navy and NWCs instrument to provide curric ulum development along with assessment to instill fundamental tenets of ethical leadership throughout the Navy; develop and guide leaders with a strong abiding sense of respon sibility, authority, and ac countability; and impart commitment of Navy Core Values and Navy Ethos to Sailors. With resources and per sonnel from the former Command Leadership School in Newport, the Navys vision for the new organization is to create courses and educational material that will have an impact across the eet for leader development and ethical decision making. As a school house, NLEC will also continue leadership education for future members of the command leadership triad command master chiefs or chiefs of the boat, executive ocers and commanding ocers. Capt. Mark Johnson, NLEC commanding ocer, reected on the benets that the organization will provide for the Navys Leader Development Continuum, which provides a common framework for leader development through professional ex perience, training, education, and personal devel opment. Weve been given a tre mendous opportunity to build something impor tant and enduring for our profession, Johnson said. Were excited and hon ored to have that oppor tunity. I can think of no higher calling than help ing to develop leaders for our Navy. Educating Sailors at all levels in leadership and character has been a cor nerstone of Navy education and training, and those attributes are vitally important dimensions that dene the Navys people and what they do throughout their service. e establishment of NLEC signies an in creased investment and commitment of the Navys most valuable asset, our people, said Rear Adm. Walter E. Ted Carter Jr., president, NWC. is serves as an opportunity to take a more proactive approach in improving a culture of character development in conjunction with continued command leader education. Our goal is improved leader devel opment. Since January 2014, NWC and the former CLS faculty and sta have been working meticulously to execute this vision. is is an incredible ac complishment and I trust we will succeed in execut ing these new responsi bilities educating our of cers and enlisted across all warfare communities, sta corps, and sub-specialties in a wide range of leadership and ethical is sues across the Fleet, said Carter.Navy photo by MCC Robert InversoSecretary of the Navy Ray Mabus addresses an audi ence at the Naval War College.

Shows were held at Busch Stadium to help open the Cardinals/Brewers game, as well as a number of high schools on both sides of the Mississippi River. e Frogs even teamed up with explo sive ordnance disposal technicians and the Navy Band for an appearance at St. Louis City Museum. is was really amazing, said Joe, a student at Alton High School, after the demonstration jump at his campus. I re ally liked it, but I was surprised to see it happen at my school. e surprise felt by Joe and hundreds of other students like him illustrates the importance of performances by the Leap Frogs in demonstrating thebNavys ca pabilities to people who live far from the ocean. For these people, and especially these kids, who dont have daily contact with the Navy, its important for us to get out there, show them what were about and answer all of their questions, said Leap Frogs team chief, Chief Special Warfare Operator Brad Woodard. e demonstrations in St. Louis ex tended beyond military capabilities; they also carried a lesson on the importance of applied science. Jumps next to the St. Louis Science Center and equipment demonstrations at the City Museum gave those interested an inside look at some of the science that goes into the military and precision para chuting. One inventive teacher was even able to incorporate the Leap Frogs performance into her lessons. We have a parachute lab in physics class as an engineering project, said science teacher Pamela Wahl. Were doing it right now. e Leap Frogs are based in San Diego and perform aerial parachute demon strations in support of Naval Special War fare and Navy recruiting. e team is celebrating their 40th an niversary this year, having been commis sioned by the Chief of Naval Operations in 1974 and tasked with demonstrating Naval excellence around the country. e Navy Parachute Team will be seen next at the X-Games in Austin June 5 to 8.

Delano Roosevelt, took a tour of Roosevelt with family and friends during a scheduled port visit in Manama, Bahrain. e tour was led by Cmdr. Jay Clark, Roosevelts commanding ocer. Sailors from the crew gave presentations about the various departments and capabilities of the ship including bridge fundamen tals, navigation, engineering, damage con trol, aviation, search and rescue, and visit, board, search and seizure operations. It was an honor and a privilege to in troduce USS Roosevelt to Mr. Roosevelt, said Cmdr. Jay Clark. e crew, as well as myself, take immense pride in being Roo sevelt Sailors. I am sure that the grandson of our namesake saw that pride and knew we were honoring the legacy Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt left behind. After the tour, Clark led the group into the wardroom, where ocers were as sembled to attend the Surface Warfare Ocer designation pinning of Chief War rant Ocer James Smith. As a surprise, Smith bestowed the honor of pinning the SWO device to Mr. Roosevelt. It was dynamic, said Smith. To have the grandson of such a great man and woman, the namesakes of our ship, per form the pinning is a once in a lifetime occurrence I will never forget. Following the pinning, Cmdr. Clark presented Mr. Roosevelt with Roosevelt memorabilia including a signed picture of the ship. In return, Mr. Roosevelt presented Cmdr. Clark with a coin from the battle ship USS Iowa, which his family has been inuential in helping to restore as a his torical monument in Long Beach, Calif., where H.
