Hunting aboard Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay is necessary to control the deer population, thus reducing the number of deer involved in vehicle accidents. NSB Kings Bay is an enclosed habitat. Hunting controls the deer population. Kings Bay Game Warden Jack OBrien has been at Kings Bay since 1997. He said the deer hunting pro gram has been helpful in reducing the number of deer vs. vehicle accidents. When we rst started the pro gram, there were a couple a week that hit deer, but now were down to a couple a year, he said. e hunting program is working out well in that respect. Hunting also prevents exceeding available food sources and promotes a healthy and productive deer herd. NSB hunting season is Sept. 13 through Jan. 15, 2015. Authorized hunting days are Wednesdays, ursdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons and evenings.

One such innovation using extreme high pressure to access and ght re is making its way to the Navy. Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay re ghters have become the rst Navywide to take part in the Commander, Navy Installations Command initiative to begin training to use an innovative reghting tool called PyroLance. is unique tool utilizes an ultra-high pressure stream of water to penetrate concrete, steel barriers and other shipboard obstacles to gain direct access to re. e Navys standard reghting teaches Sailors that reaching a re is only part of the mission. Being able to put out the ames completely means anticipating all the factors, including that of ashover. Flashover is when the temperature in the room goes to the ash point and everything in the room catches re at once, Kings Bay Assistant Fire Chief Anthony Tripolone said. For reghters, controlling the rooms temperature is key. So how do reghters control the temperature in the room? Submariners are trained to ght res and know that turning a re hose nozzle to spray out in a wide pattern can shield them from the heat of re. Its more than that now that the Kings Bay Fire Depart ment has a hose that can get the pressure past 1,500 psi. Aecting the re happens in two ways; controlling the size of the droplet and controlling its speed. Increas ing the pressure (of the re hose) does both those things, Casparus Seyert, vice president of operations at PyroLance, said during a training session with the Kings Bay Fire Department. After the (USS) Miami fire, were all looking for a game changer. Lt. Bobby Forest TRF Kings Bay fire safety officerSee Fire, Page 4 Kings Bay Fire Fighter/ EMT Jermaine Alvarado uses the PyroLance.

ability. We thought, what does it take for us to see the person rst and not their physical problem, their ethnic background or gender? We usually fail to see the person rst be cause we have decided for some reason to stay on the outside looking in. On the outside we dont become a part of their worlds. Outside looks are static, still and lifeless. ey are not interesting and so we take a glance or two and then move on. e trouble with these looks is that we have deceived ourselves in thinking we are not in some way a part of those worlds. In the book e Wounded Healer by Henri Hou wen, the reader learns in having the desire to help others, it is important that the helper realizes that he or she is wounded as well. We have our imperfections and short comings; even Superman had kryptonite. We are wounded people helping other wounded people or we are people who are disabled in some way trying as best we can to support others who also have some disability. Seeing ourselves in this way gives us the power to be a compassionate com munity teaming with each other to foster healing in our fractured world. Co operative caring generates springs of life, refreshing all regardless of our physical or personal challenges.

Florida Department of Transportation oversaw the project, in coordination with the Georgia De partment of Transportation. Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. of Tampa began work March 15, 2013 and the project was scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2014. Maintenance and repairs were performed on the bridge along with complete repainting. e uniqueness of the bridge required tedious work of hand-sanding and painting of small compo nents, applying primer, applying the blue coat and then the clear coat to help the nish endure longer. e 1927 St. Marys Riv er Bridge carries U.S. 17, also known as the Atlantic Coastal Highway, across the border of Florida and Georgia. When con structed, U.S. 17 was the principal federal highway providing northern access into Florida.

Its ability to apply extreme high-pressure water from outside a dangerous space is ideal for all types of res that could potentially occur on base. An advantage for shipboard usage, the PyroLance nozzle has the ability to cut through an inch of steel in less than one minute by spraying out a sand-based aggregate and water mixture. is provides a small hole though which water then can be delivered to the burning space, leav ing reghters in relative safety.

Pirates Cove Galley menus vided a self-assessment report reviewing certain standards, including human re sources, risk management, planning, and public safety, along with six other areas of requirements. We went through each standard and wrote a commentary of how we met it, said Bo Hutchens, Kings Bay Recreation, Travel, and Parks Director. With that, we attached any supporting documents. Af terwards, we submitted it to the accredi tation commission. Spinnenweber said going through each area of self assessment revealed some weakness. We said, OK, we need to develop some policy for this, he said. A good running organization is going to look at nancial management, how we are serv ing our customers, the work force envi ronment, and our process. After reviewing the self-assessment and providing feedback, CAPRA sent a team Aug. 11 through 15 for an on-site visitation to review documentation, interview MWR sta and to see if they com plied with the 139 military standards for national accreditation. Hutchens said to achieve accreditation, MWR must comply with 35 funda mental standards and at least 85 percent of the remaining 104 standards. CAPRA validates whether your parks and recreation agency is doing what a good agency would do, he said. NSB Kings Bay and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard both are up for the CAPRA ac creditation, a rst for the Navy. ere are only four DOD agencies that are CAPRA accredited, Hutchens said. Currently there is no Navy. ere is one Navy installation that just had their site validation visit last week. Kings Bay and Portsmouth will have our hearing this year to nd out if we are CAPRA or not. e CAPRA commissions nal review and a decision announcement will be in October.

College football kicks off Saturday with Sam Houston State at Eastern Washington. Interesting. This year theres a four-team tournament to determine the national champion. My question when I went to Pirates Cove Galley was, Who is going to win it all? Defending champ Florida State is No. 1 in the AP and Coaches polls. AP has Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon and Ohio State ranked 2 to 5, while the Coaches say Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon and Auburn. Slight difference. Clemson, inciden tally, is AP and Coaches No. 16; Michigan State eighth in both. My pick? Roll Tide! Only Nick Sabin can beat Nick Sabin, and it wont happen two years in a row.Bama our consensus for national champPfc. Zackary Bailey Marine Corps Security Force Battalion Gadsden, Ala. Alabama.

Work urged National Defense University students to become strategic-level lead ers, telling them that this exceedingly complex and potentially more danger ous world demands critical and creative thought. In remarks prepared for delivery to the class of 2015, Work called on students to develop critical ways of thinking, to question assumptions, to come up with new ideas, fresh insights, and answers to the worlds most vexing security chal lenges. Work noted that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has emphasized that while U.S. military involvement in conicts overseas during the past decade has wound down, service members instead face a fractured global security envi ronment, characterized by great uncer tainty, rapid change, new and sophis ticated threats and continued political turbulence. He also addressed the challenges DoD faces in budgetary tur bulence in the coming years. is is an unprec edented time of maxi mum challenge for [DoD], he added, not ing that DoDs future decisions will deter mine the size, shape and composition of the U.S. military for decades to come. We need creative ideas on how to pos ture our forces globally to accomplish the greatest strategic eect, how to ght more eectively in new domains with possibly game-changing technologies, how to protect U.S. interests and enhance our security in new areas. And we must do all this with fewer resources and what will no doubt be a smaller military, he said. U.S. forces face the possibility of arriv ing in a future combat theater to confront an arsenal of advanced, disruptive tech nologies that could turn U.S. previous technological advantage on its head, Work Students should think bigSee Students, Page 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 21, 2014 9

Work said, where the nations military no longer has un contested theater access or unfettered operational free dom of maneuver. And that is a future in which he, Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey are determined to avoid, Work said. To maintain our technological superiority as we transition from one warghting regime to another, we must begin to prepare now, the deputy emphasized. In addition to new technologies, a new oset strategy will require innovative thinking, the development of new operational concepts, new ways of organizing, and longterm strategies. As future strategic leaders, you need to ask how we should prepare for a future where new and disruptive technological developments are continuously occur ring, Work continued. What policies are needed? What investments are warranted? Such creative ideas, he said, often come from students and their networks outside the military, and from allies and partners in the interagency community. And with a sense of urgency, the deputy said, the nations entire national security community needs to stimulate new critical thinking and research on how the nation maintains its technological dominance, and to enable a smaller force to maintain overmatch against any potential adversary.StudentsFrom Page 9 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 21, 2014


THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 21, 2014 11


12 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, August 21, 2014 By Cheryl Pellerin American Forces Press ServiceWhat dierentiates his command from Army, Navy and Air Force cyber opera tions is a focus on the forward-deployed nature of Americas expeditionary force in readiness, the commander of Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command said during a recent interview at Marine Corps Base Quantico. As commander of MARFORCYBER, Lt. Gen. Richard P. Mills heads one of four service components of U.S. Cyber Com mand. e Marine command stood up in January 2010. Today, 300 Marines, federal civilians and contractors are performing cyber operations, Mills said. at number, he added, will grow to just under 1,000, at least until scal year 2016. Each of the services cyber commands protects its own networks, Mills noted. Where we dier is that we look more at tactical-level cyber operations and how we will be able to provide our forwarddeployed ... Marine Air-Ground Task Force commanders with the capability to reach back into the cyber world [at home] to have their deployed units supported, the general said. e basic structure for deployed Ma rine units, he said, is an air-ground task force that integrates ground, aviation and logistics combat elements under a common command element. Were more focused at the tactical lev el, the tactical edge of cyber operations, in supporting our forward-deployed commanders, and thats what we should do, Mills said. Its an important capability, the general said, and one that will become more im portant and eective for deployed com manders in the years ahead. Cyber to me is kind of like artillery or air support, Mills explained. e ac tual weapon systems are well to your rear, back here in the continental United States, and what you need to be able to do is request that support be given to you and have it take eect wherever youre operating. e Marine Corps cyber mission is to advise the commander of U.S. Cyber Command, Army Gen. Keith B. Alexander, on the capabilities of the Marines within the cyber world and how to best use those forces in accomplishing the Cybercom mission, Mills said. ats our rst job, he added. Our second job is to be able to conduct cyber operations across all three lines of cyber operations defensive and oensive cy ber ops so we have to man, train and equip Marine forces to accomplish those missions. In testimony to Congress in March, Al exander described the three Cybercom lines, or missions. A Cyber National Mission Force and its teams will help to defend the country against national-level threats; A Cyber Combat Mission Force and its teams will be assigned to the operational control of individual combatant com manders to support their objectives; and A Cyber Protection Force and its teams will help to operate and defend the Defense Departments information environment. Of the nearly 1,000 MARFORCYBER forces that will come online between now and scal 2016, Mills estimated that a third will be in uniform, a third will be federal civilian employees, and a third will be contractors. MARFORCYBER has Marines in the joint community who work throughout Cybercom at Fort Meade in Maryland. e Marine Corps cyber organization also is developing teams to be tasked by Cybercom to conduct operations across the spectrum of cyber operations. Its very similar to what we do today, Mills said. e units train and go forward from the United States and work for other commanders well forward, and cyber will be the same way. Well ship forces to Cy bercom when requested, fully trained, fully manned, fully equipped, ready to operate. MARFORCYBER is a full-up compo nent command under Cybercom along with the Air Force, Navy and Army, the general said. All four of the component command ers talk regularly to each other and meet regularly at Cybercom to coordinate our growth, coordinate our requirements, [provide] input to Cybercom and take its guidance and direction, and operate to gether in big exercises like Cyber Flag, he said. Cyber Flag is an annual exercise at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., which Cybercom conducts with U.S. inter agency and international partners. For the Marines, the smallest U.S. military service branch, contractors play an impor tant part in cyber, the general said. One of the challenges of cyber is that its such a dynamic environment, he ex plained. You need people who are educat ed and current in their specialties and who are available to stay on the job for long peri ods of time, whereas Marines come and go in the normal assignment process. Contractors have skill sets that arent always available in the active-duty Marine Corps, and can t neatly into shortterm projects, he added. ey all operate under the same clear ance requirements, the same authorities, the same rules, the general said. ats one of the things that make them so ex pensive. ey come at a cost, but you have to bear it to make sure that your cy ber capabilities are current and that you stay on the cutting edge. In the newest domain of warfare, the battleeld is evolving, Mills said, and Marine commanders have come to un derstand the impact cyber can have on defensive and oensive operations. I think cyber commanders now understand when you go forward you have to be able to defend your sys tems against in trusion by other states, by rogue el ements, and even by hobbyists who are just trying to break in and inltrate your nets, the general said. But theyre also beginning to un derstand the positive eects cyber can have in your operations against potential enemies. Its a very valuable tool in that quiver of arrows that a commander takes forward, and they want to understand how it operates. In the new domain, even a discus sion of weapons veers o the traditional path. A cyber weapon, Mills said, can be something as simple as a desktop computer. Its also a vulnerability to you, be cause its a way in which the enemy can enter your Web system if you put the wrong hardware on there or open the wrong attachment or e-mail. Cyber weapons are much more nuanced than big cannons and large bombs and weapons systems. e armories of the cyber world are very sophisticated computers and very sophisticated smart people who sit behind those computers and work those is sues for you, the general said. Mills said hes an infantry ocer by trade, so he tends to view everything he does through a combat-arms prism. I think the denition of combat arms is expanding a little bit these days, he said. I dont think cyber is any longer a communicators environment. Its an operators environment. So we want that cyber expert to sit in the operations shop right next to the air expert, right next to the artillery expert, because we think thats where it belongs. Mills pointed out the contrast between a Marine kitted out for battle with a Marine dressed for a cyber operation who may be sitting behind a desk in the United States. Hes got access to a huge computer system that allows him to operate within that domain, the general said. He may go home at night and never have to deploy forward. But hes providing support to deployed forces, hes conducting ac tions against designated targets, hes do ing a lot of things, but from the foxhole or the ghting hole at his desk, rather than some foxhole or ghting hole forward.Navy cyber operationalMarine cyber tactical Mills By Cheryl Pellerin American Forces Press ServiceFor the Navy, cyber has an inherently military operational aspect, and the ser vice is shaping its dedicated workforce to be 80 percent uniformed and only 20 percent civilian employees and contrac tors, the Navys top cyber ocer said in a recent interview. Navy Vice Adm. Michael S. Rogers, commander of Fleet Cyber Command and 10th Fleet, spoke with American Forces Press Service about the founda tional importance of the cyber domain to the Navy, the joint force and Cyber Com mand. eres a reason why, for example, if you go on that air wing on that carrier, you dont see civilians ying those air craft, Rogers said. If you go on board that ship or submarine, go down to where those weapons systems are and where those radars and tools [are] that give you situational awareness of whats going on. You dont see civilians manning those. Rogers said the joint model most ser vices are working toward is 80/20, and the Navy probably is at 77 percent today with its dedicated cyber workforce of about 5,000, plus contractors. Like the other services, weve had our workforce engaged in cyber for a long time, the admiral noted. Navy ocials concluded seven or eight years ago that cyber was of such foun dational impor tance to the ser vices future that they created a dedicated work force to do cy ber, particularly on the high-end side, Rogers said. He dened the high end as implying in-depth understanding of network struc tures and the ability to operate in relatively complex networks. At the same time, he added, it was becoming clear that the Navys traditional electronic warfare mission and cyber were increasingly converging. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jona than W. Greenert made that point in an April 3 op-ed article in the Breaking De fense online magazine. With wireless routers or satellites part of almost every computer network, he wrote, cyber space and the [electromagnetic] spec trum now form one continuous environ ment. Weve been thinking about this for a long time, Rogers told American Forces Press Service, and its nice to see that its playing out in some ways as we thought it would. Fiscal year 2013 is the rst year the ser vices are contributing to Cybercoms national and cyber combat mission forces and its Cyber Protection Force, Rogers said, and the Navy is bringing on more capability than any other service. In 2010 and 2011, we bought as a ser vice almost 800 billets that we dedicated to cyber, the admiral said. We said, We realize the workforce hasnt been fully dened, but we think this is enough. We see the trends. We think we need to make the investments now. is year, Navy cyber will bring 800 cyber service members online to form a series of dedicated teams for Cybercom, Rogers added, and in the subsequent three years, the Navy cyber organization will bring on nearly 1,000 more. e cyber workforce represents a range of capabilities and specialties, Rogers said. Our view is that you need to bring together three or four core ratings to work the cyber piece, he explained, some of them in areas you dont necessarily di rectly associate with cyber things like language. As we got into this, we came to the conclusion that we needed the ability to work in multiple languages if were go ing to work cyber from a global perspec tive. Intelligence, information technology and cryptologic technician-networks rat ings also are considered core cyber capabilities, he added. Most of the service cyber commanders have said there are similarities and dier ences in the way each service approaches its cyber mission, and Rogers said each service adopted its own structures and organizational construct. So were all organized a little dier ently, he said. In the case of the Navy, we replicated the joint model in many ways, Rogers said. Just as Army Gen. Keith Alexander is both the commander of the U.S. Cyber Command with Title 10 [armed forces] authorities, as well as director of the National Security Agency with Title 50 [na tional security and intelligence] authori ties, I am commander of Fleet Cybercom and have operational control over the majority of forces and capabilities within my service that operate and defend the networks, as well as the services oen sive capabilities. Rogers said he also wears a Title 50 hat as the Navys cryptologic commander, so the Navys signals intelligence, or SIGINT, resources also are under his operational control. SIGINT is intelligence gathered from electronic signals and systems, such as communications systems, radars and weapons systems, used by foreign tar gets. e reason we went this way was we believed the SIGINT capability the ability to see the cyber battle space as well as to gain insights into opponents use of cyber was a real plus in the cyber world, the admiral said. Its the same thing that led the joint world to align the traditional service operational command, U.S. Cy ber Command, with the SIGINT situational awareness and knowledge of the battle space of NSA, he added. We liked that model. We came to the same conclusions. Another dierence in the Navys ap proach, the admiral said, is we believe that if youre going to successfully defend your networks then you cant separate operation of the networks from the defensive side. You cant treat them as to tally separate, unrelated activities. e Navy is the only service, he added, that has decided one entity should operate the networks and defend them, as well as control the oensive cyber capabilities. I think that gives us great agility. It enables us to make very smart, very fast tradeos, the admiral said. Its a real source of strength. We operate them, we maintain them, we structure them, we control them. One of the things that makes cyber dif ferent from the land, sea, air and space domains, Rogers said, is that its the one in which every member of the organiza tion is an operator. If weve given you access to a key board, youre operating in our domain, he added. You cant really say that about the air or the maritime or the subsurface. Elements of our force are operating in those domains, dont get me wrong, but not everybody is an operator all the time. is reality, the admiral said, repre sents to us [not only] an opportunity to gain advantage, but also a potential op portunity for vulnerability for others to exploit, whether its intentional or unin tentional. Adapting to this challenge and suc ceeding in the cyber domain means changing the mindset of everyone in the Navy who uses a keyboard, Rogers said. We have to think much more broadly about this, he added. If you think Vice Admiral Rogers and 5,000 highly motivated individuals are all its going to take to achieve success and operate in an agile and eective manner in this domain, you dont get it. Its bigger than that. It doesnt matter, he said, whether youre sitting on shore duty in the middle of the United States or you are out on the USS Eisenhower in the Strait of Hormuz.

DOD photo by D. Myles CullenGeneral Martin E. Dempsey, US chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Lt. Gen. Do B Ti, Vietnam Chief of Defense, at the Ministry of Defense in Hanoi, Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Aug. 14. By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media ActivityIf the United States lifts the embargo against the sale of lethal weapons to Vietnam, Army Gen. Mar tin E. Dempsey would rec ommend providing materials for the Peoples Navy, he said during a news con ference in Ho Chi Minh City Aug. 16. In the rst trip by a chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta to Vietnam since 1971, Dempsey vis ited Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City. Forty-ve years ago, the United States was in a con ict with North Vietnam, and Dempsey was a cadet at West Point preparing to join that war. e challenge now is to think 45 years ahead, the highest-ranking U.S. military ocial said. By 2050, there will be 9 billion people on Earth 7 billion of whom will live in the Indo-Pacic. Where the people are is where the issues are, the chairman said. Vietnamese reporters questioned Dempsey on Chinas territorial claims in the East China Sea. Weve been very clear that we dont take sides in the territorial disputes, but we do care very much how they are resolved, he said. ey should not be resolved through use of force. e United States has long-standing defense agreements with nations in the region ailand and the Philippines are treaty allies. We are interested in becoming a partner with a strong and independent and prosperous Vietnam, the chairman said. Still, at its core the solu tion to the East China Sea issue hinges more on stronger multinational response brokered through the As sociation of Southeast Asian Nations rather than a question of What does the United States intend to do about it?, he said. e United States and Vietnam have common interests. Were encouraging many of our ASEAN part ners and friends to take a multinational approach to maritime security and maritime domain awareness, he said. Building capabilities for maritime domain awareness is important to any eort in the region, Dempsey said, including patrol boats, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets and search and rescue equip ment. Our advice is that we look at this regionally, not country-by-country, the chairman said. Were working our way forward in that spirit. ere is a growing sense among U.S. elected of cials and non-governmental organizations that Vietnam has made prog ress on the human rights issues that initially led to the embargo being put in place more than three decades ago. I think in the near term there will be a discussion on how to lift it, Dempsey said. My military advice will be if it is lifted that we begin with assets that would make the Peoples Navy more capable in the maritime domain. at would generate a conver sation on what that means, but I think the maritime domain is the place of our greatest common security interest right now. is could include intel ligence, surveillance, reconnaissance assets and even some weapons they dont yet have for their eet, the chairman said. Vietnam is uniquely and importantly positioned as the 13th largest economy in the world, he said. While it is located in Southeast Asia, the nation is the springboard into the Indo-Pacic region. I do see Vietnam oc cupying a key geostrategic region, Dempsey said. In terms of managing its maritime resources and managing the territorial disputes, Id suggest as goes Vietnam, I think as goes the South China Sea.Dempsey endorses help By MC1 Jason SwinkNavy News ServiceCapt.
