Ysac Perez, a combat instructor at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. I think they nalized the design of it, but they havent pushed out the rib bon itself. Currently, ribbons are awarded to Marines in three of ve B-billets, a duty outside of Ma rines normal military occupa tional specialty, which include drill instructor, recruiter, and security guard. ere are ve special duty assignments, and three of them have ribbons already, Perez said. Security Forces, which is here at Kings Bay and the School of Infantry, have always been ghting for some form of recog nition. e fact that the Combat Instructor ribbon got approved is a very good accomplishment. Combat Instructor School trains and educates instructors in leadership, character, knowl edge and skills required to for mally train entry-level Marines. Each Marine who undergoes combat instructor training is evaluated on tactics and techniques associated with oensive, defensive, patrolling and urban operations.

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, September 11, 2014 By Twilla Smith,Navy Region Southeast Public AffairsRear Adm. Mary M. Jackson, Com mander, Navy Region Southeast, signed a suicide prevention aware ness proclamation on board Naval Air Station Jacksonville Sept. 2. e proclamation recognizes September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and is intended to raise suicide awareness prevention throughout the South east Region. According to the American Foun dation for Suicide Prevention, in the United States, one person dies by suicide every 13.3 minutes. Annu ally, more than 30,000 lives are lost in our country, making death by suicide one of the most disruptive and tragic events a family and a commu nity can experience. It is estimated that for every suicide, there are from eight to 25 attempted suicides. e Navys choice of Every Sail or, Every Day as the theme for Sui cide Prevention Month emphasizes that the loss of one Sailor to suicide is one loss too many, Jackson said. e Navy has a great tradition of looking out for shipmates, but we can always do more. We should always be looking for ways to help Sailors help themselves and come to their aide any time when they show signs of distress, not just during Sui cide Prevention Month. e proclamations theme highlights the importance of taking ac tion as individuals and to recognize the impact of stressors in our dayto-day lives, as well how to develop protective measures against stress and suicide. According to Dianne Parker, Navy Region Southeast assistant suicide prevention outreach coordinator, continuously providing program information to all personnel that explain prevention tips and how to recognize indicators is a sure way to have a successful program. Unfortunately, suicide is one of the top issues military members and their families deal with, she said. Our goal is to be proactive in reducing the number of suicides within the Navy through education and awareness initiatives, and this proclamation serves as the kicko of suicide prevention month. e Navys 21st Century Sailor and Marine Program initiative encourages Sailors, commands, families, and civilian employees to empower themselves by taking per sonal responsibility for their health, wellness and growth the impor tant step in building resilience. I Pledge to Act, a Web-based eort encouraging all Sailors, families and members of the Navy community to take steps to build personal resil ience, support their shipmates and intervene if they notice signs of dis tress, is one way to help with suicide prevention and awareness. e program recognizes that in the military community, suicide has been the second or third leading cause of death for the last decade, Parker said. e goal is to try to rec ognize warning signs and help our fellow Sailors, their family member and civilians. Despite great strides in our coun try to understand mental illness and encourage improvements in con versation surrounding it, too many people still suer in silence. Cmdr. William Stallard, director of Navy Region Southeasts Chaplains Religious Enrichment Development Operations explains, Suicide has been one of the most challenging problems throughout the ages. Professionally, I have studied this phe nomenon for 25 years; also I have had countless interactions with per sons who were suicidal. Last year as duty chaplain, I responded to 5 sui cides and 1 homicide, so I know rst hand how dicult it is on the families of those who kill themselves, the impact on the commands morale and the unplanned loss; plus the toll it takes on the rst responders and caregivers. e Navys 2014 suicide prevention message Every Sailor, Every Day stresses the necessity of the Navy community to strengthen their connections with those around them and to make sure open communication, individual responsibility, peer support and bystander intervention are a part of everyday activities. Completed suicide has second and third order eects such From Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Fire DepartmentWhen the building re alarm sounds what do you do?

I have been involved with Coast Guard search and rescue for more than 12 years, and every time Im involved in a case that involves the death of a child, it breaks my heart. I wanted to take a moment to remind parents out there how to keep your children safe. Even a small wave can topple a child and pull them out to sea in a very short time. Among those 1 thru 14 years of age, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death, just behind motor vehicle crashes. Drowning happens fast, and is not loud or splashy as portrayed in media. If a person is drowning they wont be splashing and yelling, instead itll be hard to notice theyre in distress. Learn more about drowning and what it actually looks like. Lifejackets save lives. If the lifejacket is too big, it can ride up on a childs body and come o. If the lifejacket is too small; it wont keep them aoat. Arm oaties are not a good alternative to the buoyan cy of a lifejacket. It might look like a sunny day but weather can change quickly without notice while out on the beach or in a boat. Storms can blow in and lightning strikes can be dangerous. If you hear thunder, get out of the water and nd safety fast. A rip current is a power ful channel of water that ows away from the shore and takes even the stron gest swimmer o shore without their awareness. Learn more about rip cur rents and what to do if youre caught in one. Most people instinctive ly call 911 when a disaster happens, but the Coast Guard is not linked to the 911 dispatch.

Perez said Combat In structor School is not just instructor knowledge, but that future instructors need to be physically t and up to par with junior Marines. As a combat instruc tor, you have to be willing to work 24/7, Perez said. You can be teaching as early as 0500 and getting out late that very same day. In the end, its all worth it. After completing the combat instructor course, the Marine is awarded the military occupational specialty 0913 and is capable of performing the duties of a combat instructor at the School of Infantry. From there, the Marine will car ry that knowledge wher ever he or she goes. When I got deployed out to Iraq, one of our mis sions was to instruct Iraqi police, Perez said. It was some of the same skills we had to teach our junior Marines, such as how to use their ries and how to advance toward the enemy. A lot of the same instructors who get back into their regular jobs, they still get put some what in a form of instruc tor platform. e MCCIR way be awarded retroactively to all Marines with qualify ing service beginning on or after Oct. 9, 2002. e Marine Corps will publish detailed coordinating instructions for substantiating entitlement for current and retroactive cases as soon as the rib bons have been produced.RibbonFrom Page 1 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, September 11, 2014 3

Now moored on Ford Island, where Sailors rst witnessed the attack that brought America to war, USS Missouri, serves as a monument and a remind er for the beginning and the end of the WWII for the United States. On Sept. 2, 1945, Japan ocially surrendered as the Japanese Instrument of Surrender was signed on the wooden decks of the Mighty Mo. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Fleet Adm. Chester Nimitz, Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and other world leaders over saw that historic moment that is remembered today. At the ceremony, Rear Adm. Robert P. Girrier, deputy commander, U.S. Pacic Fleet, served as guest speaker. On September 2nd, 1945, right here on these decks, World War II was ocially ended, said Gir rier. When you consider the lives lost, the emotional and physical suer ing and the damage and destruction left behind the cost of the war was incalculable. But as the war ended and the world rejoiced, it didnt stay fo cused on the past, instead it looked to the future with hope and expectation of great things to come. Girrier also expressed his sincere gratitude to the veterans for their sacric es, their strength and for the future they secured for the new generations. Caitlyn Lodovico, a stu dent from Radford High School, who researched and wrote an award-win ning essay for the Battle ship Missouri Memorial September 2nd Essay con test was on hand and read her essay. Art Albert, a World War II veteran who served aboard USS Missouri be tween 1944 and 1947, spoke of his experience of the ceremony and the feeling of standing on the deck plates of his rst ship. When you come home, how do you feel? Good, right? is is how I feel, I am home, said Albert. I went through the Korean and Vietnam Wars after I left [USS] Missouri but this is it I do not care about other [duty stations] this is my home. Albert recalled the men that gathered on decks and guns of the battleship as Gen. MacArthur arrived and the joy of his fellow Sailors as WWII was ocially over. He also spoke of the pleasure he feels of seeing his home being taken care of. I am very grateful to the people here who take care of the ship, said Al bert. ey work hard and it is the greatest thing that they did since the ship has been here bringing it back like I used to know it when it was put in commission in 1944. Michael Carr, the presi dent of the Battleship Mis souri Memorial, spoke about the importance of remembering the past, learning from the mistakes and striving to a better fu ture. He thanked veterans as well as current and fu ture service members for their dedication to the nation and its safekeeping. We are here today to honor the anniversary of the peace, said Carr. Our eternal thanks go out to the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen and merchant marines who serve America with distinction and honor, and made this day possible.

The annual Diversity Fair was last week on board Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, and its always one of my favorite events every year. Americas greatness is in its diversity. We are and always have been the Great Melting Pot. It hasnt always been pretty. As Bill Murray put it in Stripes, Were mutts! I myself am Euro-mutt, with a little French, German, Danish and Polish, plus a dash of Italian seasoning. Ben Franklin, before he signed some paper in 1776, told an exclusive bunch of white guys, We must indeed, all hang togeth er, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately. Thats as true here today for all of us as it was then.What about diversity is important to you?Francisco Zamora Diversity Fair Exhibitor Lima, Peru Because its always good to learn about other peoples cultures. If were aware of other cultures and learn about each other, there wont be problems. Fatima Nelson Family member Bowman, S.C. Diversity is important because I like to respect peoples cultures and try to understand what makes them unique. MASN Napaj Wood Security Force Battalion Baltimore Diversitys important because you should be able to relate to others, and you can commu nicate better when you understand others.

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairse Navy and command ball caps may be worn in place of the eight-point cover with the Navy Working Uniform Type I, II or III beginning Sept. 1, as outlined in NAVADMIN 200/14, released Aug. 27. As announced in July, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jona than Greenert made the decision to expand the ball cap wear policy based on eet feedback. According to the NAVADMIN, command ball caps are organizational clothing that may be pur chased with appropriated funds. Sailors may purchase command ball caps with personal funds, just as they purchase command badg es, patches, belt buckles and other permissible uniform items. Additionally, wardrooms, chief petty ocer messes, rst class petty ocer associations, junior enlisted associations, and other organiza tions may purchase command ball caps with their funds. Department of Defense guidance prohibits the use of moral, wellness and recre ations non-appropriated funds to purchase command ball caps. e eight-point cover remains the basic uniform component cover for the NWUs and will be the only appropriate cover for personnel uniform inspections and special occasions to ensure a uniform appearance within the command. e Navy and command ball cap will remain authorized, optional head gear worn with Navy ight suits, Navy blue coveralls, ame resistant coveralls, and the Navy physical training uniform.Navy ball caps back Grand Opening By Claudette RouloDoD News, Defense Media ActivityAirstrikes in Iraq have been extremely successful against terrorists from the Is lamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Penta gon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren told reporters today. e airstrikes in support of Mount Sinjar the airstrikes and humanitarian drops were eective, he said. e air strikes that we conducted in support of Mosul Dam operations led to Iraqi forces retaking Mosul Dam. e airstrikes that we took in and around Amirli broke the back of the ISIL forces that were attempt ing to take Amirli. And now, over the weekend, these airstrikes conducted in support of Haditha Dam ... were tremendously eective. Certainly, ISIL forces realize that when American airpower is deployed, their chance of survival goes to nil, War ren said. e decision to conduct airstrikes near Haditha Dam came after enemy forces were observed building up and moving heavier weapons into the area, he said. It became clear that they were potentially planning to increase the pressure on the Haditha Dam area, the colonel said. At the same time, Iraqi and Kurd ish security forces had been reinforced and fortied their positions in the area, Warren added. e time was right for a counterattack, he noted. In response to a question about the reported deaths of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and some of his advisors in an air strike, Warren said the U.S. has not conducted any targeted airstrikes against specic ISIL personnel. I hope hes dead. We certainly hope hes dead, but we havent conducted any strikes against him, he said. With every terrorist that we kill from the air, that is one less terrorist on the ground, the colonel added. e airstrikes have hurt ISILs eective ness, but the organization is still a threat, Warren said. e presence of American air power restricts their freedom of maneuver, he said. ... ISIL is beginning to realize that American air power is lethal and that, if they move, theyll be seen and destroyed. A total of 10 nations have joined the ght against ISIL, Warren said.

When base police reach the scene, if your vehicle is registered its a simple matter for them to nd out who owns the damaged vehicle.
