Navy regulations outline procedures for gun ownersBy MC2 Ashley HedrickNaval Submarine Base Kings Bay Public AffairsNaval Submarine Base Kings Bay continues to maintain the Navys policy for personal re arms, including the regulation for storing rearms on base. e policy ensures the safety of Kings Bay personnel, and minimizes the potential for ac cidents and the misuse of weap ons. e policy is set to minimize unauthorized weapons on Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, insuring our Sailors, Marines, and civilian personnel are pro tected while on station and the potential threat of a lone shooter is mitigated to the fullest extent possible, Cmdr. Gregory Ver linde, NSB Kings Bay security ocer said. Kings Bays weapon policy states that no one will be per mitted to store or maintain per sonal weapons in the barracks, ocer and enlisted berthing, personal vehicles, work spaces, the RV Park, or on their person. Anybody found with unregis tered weapons while on board Kings Bay will be subject to weapon conscation, criminal charges, and loss of base access privileges. SUBASE Security provides storage of personal weapons for those who are in transit to another permanent duty station and for those who are assigned to SUBASE under temporary orders. e installation security ocer, deputy security ocer, or the SUBASE armorer must approve requests to store per sonal weapons in the armory. Kings Bay residents of military housing may possess and store privately owned weapons as long as they are properly regis tered through the security de partment. All privately owned permitted weapons must be registered within seven working days after arrival to Kings Bay, or after obtaining the weapon, and must be registered with the Pass & ID Oce prior to coming on board. Personal rearms must be stored in either a locked con tainer, a locked gun rack or se cured with an individual trigger or chamber-style gun lock that prevents loading or ring.

In an address Aug. 26 to the American Legions annual convention in Charlotte, N.C., Obama said the security of the American people, including diplomats and military advisors in Iraq, remains his top priority, which is why he authorized airstrikes against ghters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. But he added well not allow the United States to be dragged back into another ground war in Iraq. Because ultimately, it is up to the Iraqis to bridge their dif ferences and secure themselves.

By MC3 Jules StobaughDefense Media ActivityPanelists from the Navy and Ma rine Corps spoke with Sailors, Ma rines, and civilians during the Wom ens Equality Month conference in the Hall of Heroes at the Pentagon, Aug. 26. Rear Adm. Katherine Gregory, commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Andrea Broth erton, deputy naval inspector gen eral, and Sgt. Maj. Angela Maness, Marine Barracks Washington D.C. made remarks about how they per sonally see womens achievements, roles, and the future of women in the Department of the Navy. I came in the Navy back in 1978, Gregory said. is kind of event would never have happened back in that Navy. And so that really speaks to how far weve come. e panelists encouraged female service members to be themselves, not change for anyone and never give up on their goals. You have your personality, you have who you are, Brotherton said. You dont need to try to be some one else. What you need to do is take those skills that you have and hone them and make them valuable to the organization because we all bring something thats dierent and contributes to the whole and thats what makes it great. ey also shared inspirations in their lives that have driven them to continue their careers, not give up hope, and become great leaders. Our parents are just everything for all of us, Maness said. My father was a Marine so I wanted to follow in his From Navy Personnel Command Public AffairsSailors need to take an active role in getting their medical and dental records to the Department of Veter ans Aairs at retirement or separa tion, according to a Navy message released Aug. 19. One of the benets Sailors have earned with their voluntary service to the nation is support through out their life from the VA, said Ann Stewart, director, Pay and Personnel Management. To make it as easy as possible for the VA to provide that support, its in their best interest to make sure their medical records have been turned in to the appropri ate medical facility when they sepa rate or retire from the Navy. Before a Sailor separates or retires, commanding ocers and ocers in charge are responsible for ensuring that the Service Treatment Records, medical and dental records, are at the appropriate medical and dental facilities. is guarantees that the records will be available to the VA. If you need to le a claim with the VA in the future, and please dont assume that you never will have to, they will check to verify your period of service in the Navy, Stewart said. If, later in life, you need to make a connection between a medical con dition and your time in service, the VA has to have access to your medi cal record. ats the reason why NAVADMIN 187/14 is so important. With the release of the message, COs and OICs are directed to pro vide a quarterly list of personnel who have separated or retired that includes their name, separation date, date their STR was made available to the medical/dental facil ity, and an explanation for STRs not provided by the separation date, if necessary. Take this seriously, if you have your medical record, turn it in, said Stewart. If you dont, verify with your supporting medical treatment facility that they have it, and if they dont, help them nd it by providing your duty stations for the last ve years so your medical depart ment can track it down. is eort is in your best interest, make sure you have access to what youve earned.Make sure VA gets medical records Navy Personnel Military women note achievements Womens Equality Month See Equality, Page 3

Women rst entered naval service in 1908 with the establishment of the Navy Nurse Corps, 12 years be fore women were granted the right to vote. Women continued to serve in the Navy in varying capacities throughout World War I and World War II, but it was not until June 12, 1948, with the passage of the Womens Armed Services Integration Act that women gained permanent status in the U.S. armed services. e rst six enlisted women were sworn into regular U.S. Navy service July 7, 1948. Four months later the rst eight female naval ocers were commissioned Oct. 15, 1948.EqualityFrom Page 2SpringsFrom Page 2 From Coast Guard CompassItsnearly Friday! Get ting ready to go kick back on the boat this weekend? Relax, unwind, invite some friends and have some beers, right? ink twice before you get behind the wheel of a boat while intoxicated, though. Jail time, lawsuits, injury and death can all result from driving a boat drunk. Boozing and boating is denitely a great way to ruin a good time Here are 6 of the most commonrumors about al cohol and boating: 1, Drinking alcohol while operating a boat isnt a big deal; its not as dangerous as drinking and driving a car. e fact is, alcohol is re sponsible for 16 percent of boating fatalities. Its the leading contributing fac tor in recreational boat ing deaths. ats a huge deal. Operating a boat with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher is also against the law. e operator of a boat has more variables to consider than someone driving a car. How deep is the water? Are there sub merged dangers like rocks or trees? How big are the waves and what direction are they coming from? Waterways arent marked by lanes, signs and street lights the same way that roads are and most boats dont have headlights. Operating a boat is chal lenging enough while so ber. Adding alcohol only makes it more dicult and dangerous. 2, Boats are toys meant for partying out on the water. If youve ever spent time out on the water boating recreationally, chances are youve either attended a oating party, or wit nessed one at close range. Many people associate boats with parties, and of course, whats a party without alcohol? While pleasure craft are intended for recreation, they are not toys. In order to ensure fun on the water, it is the operators respon sibility to ensure the safety of everyone on board. e operator of any giv en vessel must not only be sober and of sound mind, they must be able to operate in an environment free from added distrac tion. A boat full of drunk people is dangerous, even if the boats driver has had nothing to drink. Did you know that boat operators with a blood alcohol content of .10 or higher are ten times more likely to die in a boating accident than sober op erators? Boats are meant for having fun, but when someone gets hurt or killed out on the water, the good times come to an abrupt end. 3, Penalties for drink ing and boating are pretty lenient and its hard to get caught. Operators found to be boating under the inu ence can expect to incur severe penalties e voy age may be terminated, boat may be impounded and the operator may be arrested. Penalties vary by state but can include nes, jail, loss of boating privileges and even loss of driving privileges. Law enforcement has been cracking down on BUI in recent years as driv ing a boat while intoxicat ed is no more acceptable than drinking and driving a car. In addition to police and sheri boat crews on the water, boaters can expect to encounter sh and game wardens, Coast Guard and other local, state and federal law en forcement agencies, all equipped with chemical testing capabilities using blood, breath, and urine samples. 4, Youre okay to drink and operate a vessel as long as it isnt powered by a motor. Wrong. You can get a BUI for paddling a canoe while under the inuence. BUI laws pertain to all vessels, from canoes and rowboats to the largest ships. People sometimes let their guard down while oating in boats without motors. Passing out and drift ing into a shipping lane or into the path of a ski boat doesnt fall under most peoples denition of rec reation. Impairment on the wa ter, even in kayaks and small sailing vessels, leads to accidents. 5. BUI means boating under the inuence of alco hol, you cant get in trouble for boating after smoking pot. False. BUI means boating under the inuence of any intoxicant, including both legal and illegal drugs. You can get a BUI while under the inuence of a prescribed medication if it is determined that the medication caused operator impairment. 6. Going for a swim from an anchored boat after a few drinks is a good idea. When youre out on the water on a summer day, and have downed a few drinks, going for a swim o the back of a boat may seem like a great idea. e hidden dangers are even less apparent to a person that is intoxicated. Currents are often dicult to predict until youre get ting swept away by one. If you end up further away from the boat than you planned, hypothermia could potentially occur. Additionally, alcohol distorts your percep tion of risk and your own abilities. With less accurate information pouring into the brain, youre not as equipped to make the right decisions.

From USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Public Affairse Navys unmanned X-47B returned to carrier operations aboard USS eodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Aug. 17 and completed a series of tests, operating safely and seamlessly with manned aircraft. Building on lessons learned from its rst test period aboard TR in No vember 2013, the X-47B team is now focused on perfecting deck opera tions and performing ma neuvers with manned air craft in the ight pattern. Today we showed that the X-47B could take o, land and y in the car rier pattern with manned aircraft while maintaining normal ight deck operations, said Capt. Beau Duarte, program manager for the Navys Unmanned Carrier Aviation oce. is is key for the future Carrier Air Wing. e rst series of manned/unmanned operations began this morning when the ship launched an F/A-18 and an X-47B. After an eight-minute ight, the X-47B executed an arrested landing, fold ed its wings and taxied out of the landing area. e deck-based operator used newly developed deck handling control to manually move the aircraft out of the way of other air craft, allowing the F/A-18 to touch down close be hind the X-47Bs recovery. is cooperative launch and recovery sequence will be repeated multiple times over the course of the planned test periods. e X47B performed multiple ar rested landings, catapults, ight deck taxiing and deck refueling operations. For this test period, we really focused on integration with manned air craft, said Lt. Cmdr Brian Hall, X-47B ight test di rector. We re-engineered the tailhook retract actuator and updated operating software to expedite wing fold during taxi, both of which reduce time in the landing area post-recov ery. Our goal was to mini mize the time in the land ing area and improve the ow with manned aircraft in the landing pattern. e X-47Bs air vehicle performance, testing ef ciency and safety technologies and procedures developed and tested throughout the programs execution have paved the way for the Navys future carrier-based unmanned system capability, said Rear Adm. Mat Winter, who oversees the Pro gram Executive Oce for Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons. e X-47B will remain aboard CVN 71 for the duration of the underway period. It will perform ad ditional cooperative deck and ight operations with F/A-18s and complete night deck handling and ying quality evaluations. e Navy will continue X-47B ight operations over the next year to rene the concept of operations to demonstrate the inte gration of unmanned car rier-based aircraft within the carrier environment and mature technologies for the future Unmanned Carrier Launched Air borne Surveillance and Strike system. munition must be stored in a separate container. As a person of lawenforcement and as a father, having a lock on your weapons can prevent a tragedy from happening, Master-at-Arms 1st Class Hunter McKay said. No matter how responsible we are, children can still get their hands on them. It doesnt necessarily have to be a minor or child. It is important to note a state license to carry concealed weapons is not valid on NSB Kings Bay. Individuals must follow through with Kings Bays rearms policy. All per sonnel are responsible for complying with federal, state, and local laws con cerning rearm owner ship, possession, registration, and use. Even though an indi vidual has a weapon per mit out in town that allows them to carry and conceal statewide, once they come onto the base, we have jurisdiction of this federal installation, McKay said. In the event we nd that somebody has a weapon in their vehicle, they will be liable to our laws here at SUBASE. Lets continue to keep Kings Bay a safe and weap on-incident free place to work and live. For further information or concerns, contact the SUBASE Security Depart ment at (912) 573-2147.PolicyFrom Page 1 and strategic documents as well as this years 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review. In the plan Greenert explains how the Navy will acclimate to budget challenges, increasing operational tempo while balancing current readiness with the need to build a highly capable future eet. Pursu ing the vision set in the Sailing Directions this plan lays out the investments that will allow the Navy to maintain its warf ighting edge, forward presence and keep Navy members prepared, condent and procient. is plan highlights how investments will support Navy missions through the lens of the three tenets, Warghting First, Operate Forward and Be Ready. Greenert emphasizes in the document that everything sailors and civilians do must be grounded in the responsibility of warghting rst. He says the Navy must be able to achieve access in any domain worldwide and possess the capability mix of kinetic and non-kinetic weapons to prevail to day and be ready to win tomorrow and in the future. He provided a list of capabilities that center on this objective and followed with a comparable list of items that support operate forward and be ready. Additionally, the Navigation Plan summarizes the six programmatic priorities that guided the Navys budget planning for the future of the eet: maintaining sea based strategic deterrent, sustain ing a global forward presence, preserve the means for victory against aggressors, focus on readiness aoat and ashore, en hance asymmetric capabilities in physical domains as well as in cyberspace and electromagnetic spectrum and sustain a relevant industrial base. is navigation plan was released by Greenert to Navys senior leaders and distributed on Navys social media prop erties as a priority to be communicated at all levels. Greenert will release a Position Report later in the year that reviews the Navys progress over the last year in pursuing objectives laid out in the Sailing Direc tions and earlier Navigation Plans, which can be found on his leadership page. support our partners to take the ght to ISIL. U.S. strategy is to strengthen partners and to provide more military assistance to government and Kurdish forces in Iraq and moderate opposition in Syria, Obama said. e United States also urges Iraq to form an in clusive government to build national unity and strong security forces. is will provide the antidote against terror ists, he said. e United States is also building a coalition of nations against ISIL, but America can and will de fend its citizens. Our message to anyone who harms our people is simple: America does not forget. Our reach is long. We are patient. Justice will be done, the president said. We have proved time and time again we will do what is necessary to go after those who harm Americans. He made the comments just days after American journalist James Foley, who had been held cap tive by ISIL terrorists for two years, was beheaded on video. e American military is ready to take direct action when ordered, Obama said. Rooting out a cancer like ISIL wont be easy, and it wont be quick, he said. But tyrants and murderers before them should recognize that kind of hateful vision ul timately is no match for the strength and hopes of people who stand to gether for the security and dignity and freedom that is the birthright of every human being. Overall, the presidents message was that the Unit ed States will continue to lead in the 21st century. Nobody else can do what we do, Obama said. No other nation, he added, does more to un derwrite the security and prosperity on which the world depends. In times of crisis, no other nation can rally such broad coalitions to stand up for interna tional norms and peace, he said. Even nations that criti cize the United States turn to America when the chips are down, he said. ats what American leadership looks like, he said.

Here we go. The NFL season kicks off tonight when the Seattle Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers. Thats a fact. But I want to know who is going to be in and who is going to win the Super Bowl. The Las Vegas website I just looked at has the Seahawks and Denver Broncos as 6-to-1 favorites to win it all, so that must mean Vegas favors both to reach XLIX. I went to Pirates Cove Galley to consult with my panel of NFL experts and see if they agreed. And, actually, two of them picked that matchup, with one picking each. Me? Vegas had New England third at 8-to-1, so just to be dif ferent Ill take them over the Eagles.Our picks for the 2015 Super Bowl winnerMT3 Jamie Morrison Trident Training Facility Fayetteville, N.C. Seattle and the Eagles. The Seahawks will win. They have the most returning players and a nasty defense. CSSR Anthony Grazioplene Pirates Cove Galley Buffalo, N.Y. The 49ers and Broncos. The 49ers will win. Theyre an all-around better team and their defense is top of the league. CS1 Stockton Moragne Pirates Cove Galley Spartanburg, S.C. Seattle and Carolina. Im hoping for Carolina to win because Im from there, but Seattle will win. BMC Jeremy Boggess Trident Training Facility Denver Seattle and Denver, but this year Denver is going to win. They have the same caliber offense but made improvements on defense. ETSN Anthony Flick USS Rhode Island Gold Lancaster, Pa. Itll be the Philadelphia Eagles and the Denver Broncos, and the Eagles will win in an upset. BMC Kendrick Miller Trident Refit Facility Stone Mountain It will be a repeat from last year all the way.

Million Dollar Sailor By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media ActivityIt is possible to contain the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorist group, commonly known by the acronym ISIL but not in perpetuity, said the chair man of the Joint Chiefs of Sta Aug. 21 during a Pen tagon press brieng, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said the ISIL terror group, which he prefers to call ISIS, has an apocalyptic, end-ofdays vision that will eventually have to be defeated. And to defeat the terror organization, they must be defeated not only in Iraq, but Syria as well. They will have to be addressed on both sides of what is at this point a nonexistent border, Dempsey said during a Pentagon news conference. at will come when we have a coalition that takes on the task of defeating ISIS over time. e chairman said he prefers to call the ISIL group ISIS because it high lights the terrorists longterm goals. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. Al-Sham includes Leb anon, the current state of Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and Kuwait, Dempsey explained. If they were to achieve that vision, it would fundamentally al ter the face of the Middle East and create a security environment that would certainly threaten us in many ways. e group will only be defeated when the 20 million disenfranchised Sunnis that live between Damascus, Syria, and Baghdad reject the group, the chairman said. It requires a variety of instruments, one of which is airstrikes, he said. Im not predicting those will occur in Syria.Dempsey targeting terrorists Dempsey 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, September 4, 2014

Morale, Welfare and Recreation happenings Liberty call Just for kids Periscope file photoNFL Sunday Ticket at Finnegans Irish Pub inside the Bowling Center and Average Joes Bowling League are two upcoming activities at NSB Kings Bay.NFL Ticket starts Sept. 7 From Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency For the past 100 years of mechanized warfare, protection for ground-based ar mored ghting vehicles and their occu pants has boiled down almost exclusively to a simple equation: More armor equals more protection. Weapons ability to penetrate armor, however, has advanced faster than ar mors ability to withstand penetration. As a result, achieving even incremental improvements in crew survivability has required signicant increases in vehicle mass and cost. e trend of increasingly heavy, less mobile and more expensive combat plat forms has limited Soldiers and Marines ability to rapidly deploy and maneuver in theater and accomplish their missions in varied and evolving threat environments. Moreover, larger vehicles are limited to roads, require more logistical support and are more expensive to design, devel op, eld and replace. e U.S. military is now at a point where considering tactical mobility, strategic mobility, survivability and cost inno vative and disruptive solutions are neces sary to ensure the operational viability of the next generation of armored ghting vehicles. DARPA has created the Ground X-Ve hicle Technology program to help over come these challenges and disrupt the current trends in mechanized warfare. GXV-T seeks to investigate revolutionary ground-vehicle technologies that would simultaneously improve the mobility and survivability of vehicles through means other than adding more armor, including avoiding detection, engagement and hits by adversaries. is improved mobility and warght ing capability would enable future U.S. ground forces to more eciently and cost-eectively tackle varied and unpre dictable combat situations. GXV-Ts goal is not just to improve or replace one particular vehicle its about breaking the more armor paradigm and revolutionizing protection for all armored ghting vehicles, said Kevin Massey, DARPA program manager. In spired by how X-plane programs have improved aircraft capabilities over the past 60 years, we plan to pursue groundbreaking fundamental research and deNew vehicle in planningSee DARPA, Page 12 DARPA imageDARPAs Ground X-Vehicle Technology program seeks to investigate technologies for ground-based armored fighting vehicles.

velopment to help make future armored ghting vehicles signicantly more mo bile, eective, safe and aordable. To familiarize potential participants with the technical objectives of GXV-T, DARPA has scheduled a Proposers Day Sept. 5 at DARPAs oces in Arlington, Va. GXV-Ts technical goals include the following improvements relative to todays armored ghting vehicles: Reduce vehicle size and weight by 50 percent Reduce onboard crew needed to op erate vehicle by 50 percent Increase vehicle speed by 100 percent Access 95 percent of terrain Reduce signatures that enable adver saries to detect and engage vehicles e GXV-T program provides the following four technical areas as examples where advanced technologies could be developed that would meet the programs objectives: Radically Enhanced Mobility Abil ity to traverse diverse o-road terrain, including slopes and various elevations; advanced suspensions and novel track/ wheel congurations; extreme speed; rapid omnidirectional movement chang es in three dimensions Survivability through Agility Autonomously avoid incoming threats with out harming occupants through technol ogies such as agile motion (dodging) and active repositioning of armor Crew Augmentation Improved physical and electronically assisted situ ational awareness for crew and passengers; semi-autonomous driver assistance and automation of key crew functions similar to capabilities found in modern commercial airplane cockpits Signature Management Reduction of detectable signatures, including vis ible, infrared, acoustic and electromag netic Technology development beyond these four examples is desired so long as it supports the programs goals. DARPA is particularly interested in engaging nontraditional contributors to help develop leap-ahead technologies in the focus areas above, as well as other technologies that could potentially im prove both the survivability and mobility of future armored ghting vehicles. DARPA aims to develop GXV-T technologies over 24 months after initial con tract awards, which are currently planned on or before April 2015. e GXV-T program plans to pursue re search, development, design and testing and evaluation of major subsystem capabilities in multiple technology areas with the goal of integrating these capabilities into future ground X-vehicle demonstra tors. By Krista CacaceMarine Corps Logistics Base Barstowroughout history, dogs have been our constant faithful companions and protectors. As far back as the Civil War, stories have been written of heroic dogs that have served alongside our service members in our nations history. Dogs have played vital roles as mascots, guards, trackers and even mine detectors saving thou sands of human lives. Dogs were originally en listed by the Quartermas ter Corps, and a diversity of breeds were accepted, but were viewed as equip ment. German Shepherds and Doberman pinschers became the choice breed selected for the work. ese dogs are commonly referred to as war dogs; however, the cor rect term is military work ing dogs. Military work ing dogs have been used by the U.S. Military since World War I. On Nov. 1, 1943, the 24 canine members were sent ashore just one hour after the rst wave of Ma rines hit the beach on Bougainville. e ghting Marines met the dogs with mixed reactions, since the use of dogs in combat was in a trial run. But these dogs proved to be invaluable in combat. Otto, a thin Doberman pinscher, described as a very intelligent, welltrained, and good point dog hit the beach with his two handlers, Pvt. Martin R. Troup and Pfc. Henry L. Demault. Working ahead of the point in a reconnaissance patrol on Nov. 2, Ottos keen sense of smell and hearing allowed him to alert the position of a machine gun nest at least 100 yards away. is allowed the Marines time to disperse and take cover before the machine gun opened re, resulting in zero casualties. Otto would go on to alert his handlers of Japanese snipers and more gun positions, but the stress and heavy combat conditions proved to be too much for him. Otto developed a nervous condition as a result of shellre, and had to be put down on July 20, 1944. Unfortunately, after the conict the majority of the working dogs had to be euthanized. During the Vietnam War, approximately 4,000 U.S. dogs served in the conict. e First Marine Dog Platoon consisted of 48 enlisted men working in pairs as handlers for the 21 Dobermans and three Shepherds. Labradors eventually replaced the Doberman due to the nature of the work that had to be ac complished, but the Ger man Shepherd remains the most frequently used dog. Military working dogs continue to be of service today, but upon retire ment, suitable veteran war dogs are allowed to be ad opted into loving homes. e heroic actions of these Devil Dogs should not be forgotten. ey have saved countless lives and prevented casualties throughout their military service.Dogs, Corps best friendNational ArchivesButch, a sentry dog, stands guard over Pfc.

at the Kings Bay Fitness Center indoor basketball courts By Jim Garamone DoD News, Defense Media ActivityNATO is examining additional ways it can reassure alliance members who feel threatened by Russias on-going ac tions in Ukraine, including positioning forces in new locations, the Supreme Allied Commander Europe told a German newspaper. In an interview with Die Welt, Air Force Gen. Phillip Breedlove called Russias annexation of Ukraines Crimean penin sula a new type of warfare, labelling it the DIME model: diplomatic, informational, military, economic. In this new hybrid warfare, we see Russia applying all of the elements of national power in a coercive way to aect change in other sovereign nations, he said. In February, Russia deployed a large force on its border with Ukraine and the Russian army conducted what were described as exercises near Crimea. Lets just look at eastern Ukraine right now. In a diplomatic sense, the Russians are trying to build these in ternational arguments that it is Ukraine that is causing the problem, and that Russia needs to step in. However, Breedlove said Russia continues to threaten Ukraines sovereignty and he said NATO allies in Eastern and Central Europe feel threatened by this new warfare as well. A number of reassurance measures have been put in place including bolster ing air policing in the Baltics, added ship visits to the Black Sea, increased infantry exercises in the Baltic Republics as well as the deployment of additional NATO air assets as well as infantry exercises in Russian threats examined Breedlove By MC1 Joshua NistasUSS Anchorage Public AffairsSailors and Marines from amphibious trans port dock ship USS An chorage (LPD 23) and guided-missile destroyer USS Spruance (DDG 111) gathered together to help restore a legacy of U.S. Na val history, Aug. 7. e service members assembled on the deckplates of the former battle ship USS Iowa (BB 61) to help in restoring the ship that has become a museum. David Caneld, vice president of security and technology for Iowa, says this community relations means more than Sailors moving items from one part of the ship to the next or painting a bulkhead. One of the reasons that we are here is to pass that torch to the next genera tion, said Caneld, who served on the Iowa from 1987-89 as a non-rated Fireman. For me person ally as an Iowa veteran, a chief petty ocer and as a member of the executive team on the ship, it meets all of our goals. Were passing that baton to the next generation. Youre teaching them what it was to serve before, allowing them to serve now, and really admiring them for their service that theyre doing for the future. It re ally connects the past with the future. Sailors had a chance to experience the interior of Iowa that is usually closed o to the public, working in the same type of areas that they work in on the modern day naval ships. It feels amazing work ing on board here, Boat swains Mate 2nd Class Cleston Williams from Spruance said. Because this ship here paved the way for the ships that Im on today, like the USS Spruance. is is where it all started, all the blood, sweat and tears. Its an honor and privilege being able to do this. Iowa was rst commis sioned on Feb. 22, 1943, and was decommissioned on three separate occa sions. For some of the service members, the COMREL had an added bonus of sharing a rich history. Im a big World War II fan, said Marine Cpl. Devin Hahn, from the 7th Engineer Support Battal ion detached to the Anchorage. And me being able to come on board the Iowa and work on it is like working on a piece of his tory. e current generation of the military was given the chance to work sideby-side with veterans that once served aboard the Iowa. Intelligence Technician 1st Class Maria Edwards said it was a very rewarding experience to be able to work with a former crewmember of Iowa. I thought it was awe some working with an ac tual veteran from Iowa, Edwards said. He showed us where he worked, and he told us about how it was like back then. I think Navy photo by MC1 Eli J.

that one day, when Im retired, I would like to work with one of the ships Ive been on. Caneld, who served in the Navy for 21 years and went from being on Iowa as a non-rated Fireman to retiring as a chief petty ocer, says the experience shared on Iowa is ex tremely important. Look around and understand that what we did in the eighties, and what the previous crew did in the forties and fties, and what theyre doing today its all connected, Caneld said. We are all members of the same profession. All of us have cho sen to wear the cloth of this country. And when you look back, its like you were part of a long tradition, there are deep roots in the Navy. Caneld added, I would encour age them to look around the ship, to drink in the history. Understand that there were three generations that served here, and you guys are part of the next generation that is serving now. By 1st Lt. Garth LangleyMarine Expeditionary Brigade AfghanistanA blinding sandstorm swept across the desert oor surrounding Regional Command (Southwest)s securitynebulous, Task Force Bel leau Wood, Aug. 15. During a brief pause in the storm, Marines with 1st Marine Regiment held a small ceremony to case the units battle colors for the nal time in Helmand province, Afghanistan. e regiment deployed to southwestern Afghani stan during Feb. 2014 and led more than 3,000 U.S. and coalition forces charged with safeguarding the remaining Interna tional Security Assistance Forces in the region. First Marine Regiment transferred security lead to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, which will serve as the last Marine infantry unit during the Operation Enduring Freedom mission. By the years end, RC(SW) will ocially close its doors after more than ve years of counter insurgency and security force assistance operations and transfer full security responsibility to the Afghan National Security Forces. Col. Peter Baumgar ten, a native of El Paso, Texas and 1st Marine Regiments commanding ocer, said the opportunity to serve as the last regimental headquarters in Helmand was an honor. Its really an incredible feeling to be with 1st Marines at this period of time as their commander, Baumgarten said. During his 26-year career, Baumgarten has deployed with Marine Expeditionary Units and commanded infantry units in Baghdad and al Anbar province, Iraq. Shortly after assuming command of 1st Marine Regiment during June 2012, Baumgarten said he anticipated the regiment would deploy to Helmand during the drawdown of U.S and coalition forces. During the summer of 2013, as the force structure for Marine Expeditionary Brigade Afghanistan was developed, the regiment was notied it would join the list of units to deploy during 2014. At the time, the regiment had participated in the multinational amphibious exercise Dawn Blitz with forces from Canada, Japan and New Zealand during June 2013. Baumgarten said his Marines were excited for the opportunity to help close a signicant chapter of Marine Corps history. ey said, youve got the mission to Afghani stan, said Baumgarten. At the time, Baumgarten was prepared to deploy upward of 350 personnel for the mission. In pre vious iterations of OEF, regimental combat teams deployed a headquarters of that size to command multiple infantry battalions. Baumgartens mission would be dierent, however. Due to manpower constraints, he would only get the opportunity to choose 45 Marines to command the sizeable Task Force Belleau Wood. Baumgarten went to the drawing board in search of a very select group of Ma rines. I had an entire regimental headquarters who really wanted to go to com bat, said Baumgarten. It was very satisfying and heartbreaking. When we went from 350 Marines to 45, we had to go into a full mission analysis. We knew for sure we were not going to be the ground combat element for the Marine Air-Ground Task Force, so we didnt have to have the force structure to do that. roughout 2013, the regiment conducted a series of predeployment training exercises to pre pare them for the deployment to Helmand. We focused on baseline skill sets, including the command and control capabilities, understanding how to run a combined joint operations center for Task Force Belleau Wood, and the overall manage ment of security struc ture, said Baumgarten. e unit also complet ed the Infantry Training Exercise aboard Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California. During the exercise, he and the sta observed Marines from across the headquar ters. Ultimately, the Ma rines who made the cut were hand-selected by Baumgarten. I had sergeants who I hand-selected and they served in billets reserved for gunnery sergeants, and they acted and per formed like gunnys, said Baumgarten. 2014 was a nostalgic year for 1st Marine Regi ment. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the regiment, Baumgar ten organized a series of events during 2013 and 2014. We held a battle reded ication ceremony during 2013, said Baumgarten. He recalled a nervous moment while looking at historical paperwork. I looked down and re alized 1st Marines came into existence during 1913 and had the realization that we were hitting the 100th anniversary that year, Baumgarten said. While the unit was preparing for their de ployment to Helmand, they organized a centen nial celebration at the regiments headquarters aboard Camp Horno dur ing Jan. 2014. We invited all of the for mer commanders and the Marines who served with the regiment, Baumgar ten said. One of the very special times while in command was talking to the former commandant of the Marine Corps and commanding ocer of 1st Marine Regiment who got my invitation but could not attend. e Marine was retired Gen. P.X. Kelley who served as the 28th Com mandant of the Marine Corps from 1983 to 1987. Tragically during 2014, Task Force Belleau Wood suered the loss of a Ma rine. Four days after ar riving in Helmand, Cpl. Caleb Erickson with 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Reg iment, was killed by an in surgent attack. We lost one young Marine with Task Force Belleau Wood, Baumgar ten said. You have that weight on your shoulders at this point in the campaign. Corporal Erickson gave his life, and I think about him all the time. I think about all of those others who sacriced their lives and made the com mitment to serve. Baumgarten and the Marines of 1st Marine Regiment are heading back to Camp Pendleton with a sense of accomplishment. I couldnt be more proud of the guys, said Baumgarten. At the end of the deployment, you have about 40 of them you want to pin medals on. Baumgarten said the regiment will not sit idly. In the coming months, 1st Marine Regiment will take part in large-scale amphibious exercise Steel Knight and has their sights set on future contingency operations. Baumgarten said he is proud to contribute to the legacy of 1st Ma rine Regiment, just as Lt. Gen. Chesty B. Puller and Gen. P.X. Kelley did so many years before his time. I carried the ag of 1st Marines out here, and the thought of being a part of Marine Corps his tory is a great honor, said Baumgarten. We are proud to have been the last regimental command element to deploy to Af ghanistan during the past 13 years of war.1st Marines complete mission in Afghanistan Marine Corps photoCol. Peter B.

Were going to look at specically the NATO Response Force, he said. Were going to look at how to be more prepared in a command and control stance to react to Article 5 defense. NATO will also station forces in the right locations to be able to rapidly respond to this new form of warfare that we see being used, Breedlove said. NATO nations must develop the police and military capabilities to deal with this new form of war. How do we now train, organize, equip the police forces and the military forces of nations to be able to deal with this? he asked. It is important to remember that if we see these actions taking place in a NATO nation and we are able to attribute them to an aggressor nation that is Ar ticle 5, and it is a military response.
