Naval hospital to close temporarily Nov. 20-22

From Rod Duren

During the weekend of Nov. 20-22, it will be neces-
sary for Naval Hospital Pensacola to temporarily close,
including all services for patients, while new emergency
generators begin a phased-in installation. There will be
no power available within the facility during this process.
Beginning Friday, Nov. 20, at 11 a.m., the hospital will
cease all clinical operations including pharmacy. The
main gate to the facility will be closed to all incoming
traffic at noon. Any remaining inpatients at the facility
will be transferred to other nearby medical facilities.
Sick call and non-emergency outpatient care for mili-
tary and enrolled beneficiaries will be available on a

walk-in basis at the branch health clinic at Naval Air
Technical Training Center (NATTC) onboard NAS
Pensacola. Hours of operation for these services are
Friday, noon to 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m.
to 7 p.m.

The NATTC clinic is located next to the Portside
Complex on East Avenue directly behind the main
administration and galley facilities of NATTC. For addi-
tional information or directions call 452-8970, ext. 123.

All naval hospital customers who may need urgent or
emergency care, during the Nov. 20-22 shutdown, should
go to the closest hospital emergency room or urgent care
The Pharmacy Refill Center at the NEX Mall will
maintain its regular schedule on Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m., and Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Because of the weekend closure, the naval hospital
will cease providing labor and delivery services as of 6
p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18. All maternity patients, 36
weeks gestation or more, will be contacted by Navy hos-
pital personnel with instructions on where to report for
care in the event of labor or other health care needs.
All naval hospital services will resume Monday mom-
ing, Nov. 23, at 7 a.m.

Spike in

sends warning
to NASP riders
By Mike O'Connor
Gosport Associate Editor

A recent increase in
nationwide motorcycle-
related fatalities among
service members has
prompted Navy and base
officials to remind riders
of their risks and urge safe
riding practices.
"Recently a significant
number of Sailors have
been seriously injured or
have died in private
motor vehicle (PMV) and
motorcycle mishaps,"
Adm. Jonathan Greenert,
Vice Chief of Naval
Operations (VCNO),
wrote in a memo last
week. "In one month we
have lost 31 percent of the
number of Sailors we lost
in all of FY 2009. This is
a tragedy for our service,
constitutes a significant
impediment to Navy
readiness, and requires
that we refocus our efforts
at every level of com-

Department Director Jon
Winters confirmed the
VCNO's numbers. "In
the first 17 days of

Sailors killed in motor

condition." Five of the
service members lost
were on motorcycles, so

John Appleyard to be recognized at

Veterans Day ceremony in Pensacola

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

John Appleyard, Pensacola businessman
and historian, will be recognized during the
Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 11 in
Pensacola for the contributions he has made
for veteran's causes.
He was especially helpful, along with
Vince Whibbs, in raising the $475,000 need-
ed for the World War II memorial at Veterans

Memorial Park, said Retired Capt. John E.
Pritchard of the Pensacola Veterans
Memorial Park Foundation. And he was part
of the organizing effort for the first honor
flight to Washington D.C. for World War II
Appleyard, 86, is a World War II veteran
himself who went on to found the John
Appleyard Agency in Pensacola with his
wife, Eleanor. He served as chief executive
officer until 1993 when his son, Dick, took

Air show brings

changes this year

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

The countdown to the 2009
Blue Angels Homecoming Air
Show at NAS Pensacola is near-
ing completion.
For veteran air show goers, the
two-day event on Nov. 13-14 will
have some familiar sights and
sounds and some changes as well.
One of the biggest changes this
year is the night show with all its
performers, pyrotechnics and fire-
works will be on Saturday (Nov.
14), instead of Friday.
Organizers hope moving to a

weekend will allow more people
to attend the event and encourage
those who come on Saturday to
stick around for a few more hours.
'This is a perfect family event,
concluding early enough for
small children, and the fireworks
will be the best seen in the local
area this year," Shanaghan said.
"We were competing with high
school football on Friday nights,"
he said. "And with the show end-
ing at 6:30 p.m., people on Friday
were not able to get from work to
home to get the family and then

See Air show on page 2

In addition to Appleyard, 12 World War II
veterans will be singled out during the cere-
mony, which will follow the Veterans Day
parade that starts at 9 a.m.
The parade will begin at the intersection
of South Spring and Main streets and pro-
ceed down Main Street to the Veterans
Memorial Park.

NETC Public Affairs

"Our Navy exists to pro-
vide for the safety, the
security and the prosperity
of America." That was one
of the messages delivered
to more than 500 business
leaders and military guests
at the annual Combined
Rotary Military
Luncheon by
Rear Adm.
and Training
The event
was held
Nov. 2 at the Rear
New World Joseph I
restaurant in Pensacola.
Addressing the audi-
ence, Kilkenny explained
the importance of free seas
to America's commerce
and security.
'Today, the economies
of Pensacola, and indeed
the entire United States,
are tied to the seas.
Because the maritime
domain the world's
oceans, seas, bays, estuar-
ies, islands, coastal areas,
littorals and the airspace
above them supports
90 percent of the world's
trade, it carries the
lifeblood ofthe global sys-
tem that links every coun-
try on earth. It links
Pensacola to the world."
Kilkenny also gave the
audience a snapshot of


how the military stationed
in Pensacola affects the

Organizers are already
watching the weather on
their computers. "We all
start looking at the weather
a week out as the forecasts
have a bit more accuracy
because that's one thing we
cannot control," said
MWR Director Kerry
Shanaghan earlier this
week. With more than
175,000 expected to attend
the two-day show, the
weather can be key.
Attendees will also
notice a change in the way
cars are parked on the base.

now under construction is
in the area on the south
ramp where cars had been
parked for past shows.

that we always have to keep our
focus on it's one of our biggest
Winters also emphasized the twin
dangers of both alcohol and late-
night driving.

"While some people are worried
about a DUI, that's nothing com-

Navy Legal: Avoiding unnecessary residential lease fees with a landlord

By Lt. Corey D. Bean
Legal Assistance Attorney

Imagine getting mail from your land-
lord about a month after moving out of
your apartment.
You assume the envelope contains
your refunded security deposit. Instead
it contains a bill for $3,552.01 and a
notice that your account will be turned
over to a collection agency if not settled
in 30 days.
While a legal assistance attorney may
be able to help you obtain some relief
(depending on the facts of the case), this
situation was probably avoidable.
Fees for repairs, early termination
and other lease violations can add up
quickly and seem disproportionate to
any damage suffered by the landlord.
The following is my best advice for
avoiding having to write a big check
after terminating a lease.
Read. The lease documents the
agreement between you and your land-
lord. When you sign it you agree to it
whether you read it or not because you
are presumed to have read it.
Most apartment complexes and prop-
erty management companies use stan-
dard forms with blanks filled in.
When you read through your lease
make sure that all blanks are filled in
and that the numbers match previous
representations of the landlord.
For instance, the amount of your
monthly rent, length of the lease, due
date for rent payments, amount of late
fees and notice for termination should
all be filled in.
An individual landlord/owner might
not use a form lease. You still need to
read the lease carefully and make sure
you understand all terms, especially
because some terms may be unconven-
Negotiate. No matter who you rent
from, you can still propose changes to
any lease contract.
The worst the landlord can do is
refuse to change a term you do not like
in which case you are no worse off than

before you asked.
If the terms are too onerous for you to
accept, look elsewhere for housing.
Especially in a depressed housing mar-
ket, landlords may work harder to com-
pete for your business.
Be sure that all of your negotiations
are in good faith. Sneaking terms into a
lease may give your landlord the option
to void the contract. Even if your land-
lord does not void your lease, your
landlord may now be looking
for ways to add violations or
Inspect. Before you
accept the house or apart-
ment, walk through it. "
What was promised must
be delivered, and you do
not need to accept any-
thing less.
For instance, if you were
promised new appliances and
there is an avocado green refrigerator
from 1974 in the kitchen, you can refuse
to accept the lease under the original
terms or at all. Similarly, if the premis-
es are filthy or infested, you do not have
to accept them.
Document. Take pictures or a video
walkthrough of pre-existing damage in
your house or apartment and note it on
the move-in check list that your landlord
should give you. Refuse to sign a lease
unless the landlord agrees to document
pre-existing damage. Save the pictures
and the move-in check list.
Comply. Pay rent on time to avoid
late fees. Also comply with other terms
in the lease.
If you are going to change room-
mates, most leases require an addendum
since you cannot sublease without the
landlord's approval of the new resident.
This requirement is understandable
from the landlord's point of view since
they have an interest in who is living on
the premises.
If you move out and at least one
roommate stays behind, also make sure
to get a lease addendum. Without the
addendum you can and will be held

liable for damages that may occur after
you are no longer living on the premis-
Notify. Make sure to give advanced
notice before your move-out date to
avoid early termination fees or having to
pay more rent than necessary.
Although the Service Members' Civil
Relief Act provides some protection for
civilians or reservists receiving orders
to active duty and for active-duty
personnel receiving PCS orders
or orders to deploy for at
least 90 days, delay in noti-
fying your landlord may
result in more cash in
your landlord's pocket
and less cash in yours.
Notice under SCRA
or military clause. The
SCRA (and most military
clauses in a residential lease
simply parrot the language of the
SCRA) does not require that your land-
lord terminate your lease 30 days after
being properly notified of your orders
and move. It requires that the lease be
terminated 30 days after the next rental
payment is due.
So, if you give notice to move on Oct.
2, and will vacate the premises on Oct.
3, even under the SCRA the landlord
can hold you liable for all of October
and November rent. You gave notice on
Oct. 2 after rent was due on Oct. 1. The
next rental payment is due Nov. 1.
Thirty days after Nov. 1 is Nov. 30,
which will be the effective termination
date of the lease (assuming the lease
would not have terminated before then
under its original terms).
Notice under lease termination
clause. Your lease termination clause
may indicate that the lease will automat-
ically renew unless notice of intent to
terminate is given 30 or possibly 60
days prior to the end of the lease.
This means if your lease says 60 days
notice is required and you give notice 45
days before the end of your lease, the
landlord can hold you liable for an addi-
tional month of rent.

Worse yet, if you in fact move out
prior to the end of the lease, the landlord
can invoke early lease termination
clauses for "liquidated damages" and
any concessions or discounts given to
you during the terms of your lease.
Let's say you rent a place for $900 a
month after a 10 percent discount. You
move out with insufficient notice at 11-
and-a-half months of a 12-month lease.
You could be hit with an extra
month's rent under the automatic renew-
al clause ($1,000 since the discount
would not apply to the automatic renew-
al), liquidated damages ($850 usual-
ly 85 percent of one month's rent) and
charge back of the discount under an
early termination clause ($1,200).
While a liquidated damages clause
may be dubious in a residential lease in
most states and one has to ask how a
lease can automatically renew and ter-
minate early at the same time it is
better to plan ahead and give proper
notice than it is to contest the issue after
the landlord already feels aggrieved.
Re-inspect. Do a walk though with
your landlord after moving out. The
landlord should give you the chance to
fix any damage yourself before hiring a
contractor to fix it and sending you the
bill. But the landlord can only give you
this option if you make yourself avail-
Small things like nail holes in walls
and broken internal door knobs can be
relatively inexpensive to repair yourself,
but hiring someone to fix them will give
you sticker shock.
Also most landlords will charge dis-
posal fees for items left in an apartment
after the lease terminates such as $200
to remove a sofa and $25 to remove
each bag of trash.
Following these steps during the
lease is minimally cumbersome and may
save substantial headaches and cash
upon termination.
Contact your local legal assistance
office with any questions regarding your
residential lease. At NASP, the legal
office can be reached at 452-3734.

Voting changes will make it easier for service members to vote

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

The Military and Overseas
Voter Empowerment Act recent-
ly signed by President Barack
Obama will make voting in fed-
eral elections more streamlined
for service members, especially
those serving overseas.
"It will make it a lot easier to
just jump on your computer and
send your request for the absen-
tee ballot back to you, and all
you have to do is fill it out and
send it back in the mail," said Lt.
Cheryl Ausband, who is serving
as the voting assistance officer
for Naval Air Station Pensacola.
Ausband is also the judge
advocate for NASP, including
Corry Station and Saufley Field,
and for NAS Whiting Field and
Navy facilities in Panama City.
Previously, voting assistance
officers had to provide the phys-
ical address where military

Lt. Cheryl Ausband
members could request an
absentee ballot.
"Now all we have to do is say
'go to a Web site,'" Ausband
At Naval Air Station
Pensacola, plans are already
underway to implement the bill.
"My job is to get the word out
and make sure everybody knows

where the information is,"
Ausband said.
"I think the biggest effect on
voting is the fact that it's doing
away with all the extra require-
ments, especially for those over-
seas," Ausband said.
That includes the procedural
requirements such as having the
document notarized. "It gives
you that flexibility to still have
your vote be counted, she said.
The bill also allows military
members to track the status of
their ballot requests.
"Before you sent off your
request in the mail and never
knew if it made it to somebody
or if you were actually going to
get a ballot back," Ausband said.
"With this you can actually
know what's going on and
what's coming."
Key aspects of the bill include
the following:
States must establish a pro-
cedure that allows military voters

to request voter registration
applications and absentee ballot
applications by mail or electron-
ically for general, special, pri-
mary and runoff elections for
federal office.
Military voters will be able
to designate how they want to
receive the application, either by
mail or electronically.
Procedures must protect the
security and integrity of the
Procedures must protect the
privacy of the identity and per-
sonal data of the military mem-
States must develop a way to
transmit blank ballots to military
voters by mail and electronically.
States must develop a way
for military voters to determine
whether their ballots were
Expands federal write-in
absentee ballots to include all
special, primary and runoff elec-

tions for federal office.
Absentee ballots must be
sent at least 45 days before the
election. For the Nov. 2, 2010,
general election, 45 days before
the election would be Sept. 18.
The Federal Voting
Assistance Program must main-
tain an online database that
includes state contact informa-
tion for federal elections.
The Department of Defense
must establish procedures for
collecting and delivering absen-
tee ballots of voters who are
overseas and mail them to sate-
election officials.
DoD must inform and edu-
cate service members about the
ballot procedures.
DoD must implement a sys-
tem that allows military voters to
receive a list of all candidates for
federal office.

Homeless stand down today at

Joint Ambulatory Care Center

By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer

The Department of
Veterans Affairs Gulf
Coast Veterans Health
Care System wants to see
as many homeless veterans
as possible today (Nov. 6)
during the Homeless
Veterans Stand Down at
the Joint Ambulatory Care
While stand downs are
not new in the area, it is the
first time the event will be
held at the JACC, next to
Naval Hospital Pensacola
on Highway 98 West.
The event will run from
8 a.m.-3 p.m.
All veterans will have to
bring is some proof of vet-
eran status such as their
DD Form 214, certificate
of release or discharge
from active duty or a VA
identification card to quali-
fy for services.
Finding homeless veter-
ans is all part of President
Barak Obama's mission to
bring services to them, said
Jerron Barnett, public
affairs specialist with the
VA Gulf Coast Veterans
Health Care System.
Other VA agencies are
also holding stand downs,
including one in Mobile,
Ala., on Nov. 19, and one
that has already occurred
in Biloxi, Miss., on Nov. 4.
What makes the
Pensacola stand down
unique is the agency is the
lead agency for the event
and not just a sponsor.
Bringing the veterans to

the JACC which has
been in existence a little
more than a year will
make it easier to enroll
them for the medical needs
they are qualified to
receive, Barnett said.
The facility was built to
handle 30,000 veterans so
there is plenty of room to
meet their needs, Barnett

What: Homeless stand
Where: Joint Ambulatory
Care Center, Pensacola
When: Nov. 6, 8 a.m.-3
Purpose: Provide health
care for homeless veter-

Seasonal flu shots will
be available at the stand
down as we as a variety of
services that are offered at
the facility.
There will also be live
music and food. It will take
on the appearance of a
health fair on the VA
grounds, Barnett said.
An all-out effort has
been made to find home-
less veterans in Escambia
and Santa Rosa counties,
estimated to be about 200,
according to Janis Wilson,
who is coordinating volun-
teer efforts for the event.
Wilson works through the
EscaRosa Coalition on the

are so many homeless vet-

erans is because there are
so few shelters, she said.
Some of the homeless are
living in the woods in the
Efforts are being made
to find the homeless,
including leaving informa-
tion at soup kitchens, shel-
ters and places around
town where they come in
to use their facilities,
Wilson said.
They are also working
with area veterans groups.
One motorcycle club con-
nected to an American
Legion post in Navarre has
plans to drive Interstate 10
leaving off information
where some of the home-
less veterans are believed
to be staying, Wilson said.
Homeless veterans will
also have free bus rides
available to them courtesy
of the Escambia County
Area Transit if they show a
valid form of veteran sta-
The EscaRosa Coalition
on the Homeless has
arranged free transporta-
tion to the event for home-
less in Santa Rosa County.
Bamett said he's not
sure how many people the
event, which will serve
breakfast and lunch for
those attend, will attract. It
could be anywhere from
150 to 350 people, he said.
"Once we get them
here, there is a lot we can
do for them," Bamett said.
For information, Bamett
can be reached at 912-
2380 or Wilson can be
reached at 255-5570.

Mullen receives award for homeless efforts

By Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service

HOLYOKE, Mass. The United
States has the values, wealth and support
of its leadership to end homelessness
among veterans, the top military officer
said recently as he accepted an award for
his efforts to stop what he said is a nation-
wide problem.
Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he was
"humbled, thrilled and grateful" to accept
the first "Soldier On" award.
"I accept this award but I really do
accept it for the two million men and
women who are serving right now, active
and reserve and guard," Mullen said.
"(They) make up the best military we've
ever had in our country."
The Soldier On award was created as
an annual recognition of a person who has
made a significant contribution to ending
homelessness among veterans.
Mullen received a bronze statuette cre-
ated by internationally acclaimed sculptor
Andrew DeVries, who will create stat-
uettes for future honorees, as well.
Homelessness among veterans has

been a challenge virtually all of Mullen's
adult life, particularly post-Vietnam, he
said. It's an issue he's focused on as the
country fights two wars.
"Several years ago when these conflicts
started, one of the things I promised
myself is I'd do everything I could to
make sure we didn't generate another
generation of homeless veterans, which
we did when I was young," Mullen told
reporters before accepting the award.
The chairman said he is grateful for all
that Jack Downing, founder of Soldier On
and all the sponsors have done to curb
homelessness among veterans in
But, he said, "the homeless veterans
challenge is one that is certainly much
broader than the local challenge here. It's
a national challenge."
The road ahead to curbing homeless-
ness among veterans is long, but Mullen
said he's confident in the leadership,
which he described as "committed to
making it work."
"It is a great, great privilege to be able
to serve with so many who care and then
to see how much difference can be made,"
he said.

Pensacola area Marines' birthday celebrations start today

By Lt. Kelsey Lourie

The Marine Corps' 234th birthday
celebration in the Pensacola area
starts tonight (Nov. 6) and lasts
through Nov. 12, with four balls rep-
resenting different groups of Marines,
including officers from the Marine
Aviation Training Support Group-21
at NASP.
USMC birthday ball is a yearly cel-
ebration of the history of the Corps,
and a time for esprit de corps among
the members of a given organization.
There will be a program that begins
with a "uniform pageant" that dis-
plays the many eras of the Marine
Corps via the uniforms worn in each
major conflict since its birth on 10
Nov 1775.
Following that is a reading of Gen
John A Lejeune's "Birthday
Message" dated Nov. 1, 1921.
The program culminates when the
oldest Marine and youngest Marine
present cut the birthday cake and take
the first bites.

A rundown of the balls in the area
are as follows:
4th MAWTSG Ball:
Who: Reserve Marines assigned to
the 4th Marine Air Wing Training
Support Group headquartered at
Naval Air Station Pensacola
When: Nov. 6 at 5 p.m.
Where: New World Landing,
MATSG-21 Officers Ball:
Who: Officers assigned to
MATSG-21, including those at Naval
Air Station Whiting Field and Eglin
Air Force Base.
When: Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.
Where: National Naval Aviation
MATSG-21 Student Ball:
Who: AMS-1 and AMS-2 enlisted
Marines training at NATTC
When: Nov. 10 at 5 p.m.
Where: AD hanger, NATTC
MATSG-21 Staff Ball:
Who: Staff officers, NCOs,
Marines and civilian employees
When: Nov. 12 at 5:30
Where: Renaissance Hotel, Mobile

'Frozen Chosin' Marine shares history at birthday ball

By Sgt. Jennifer Brofer
1st Marine Logistics Group

A retired Marine veteran
who participated in the
Chosin Reservoir
Campaign in Korea and
was promoted by Chesty
Puller, attended the 7th
Engineer Support
Battalion, 1st Marine
Logistics Group Marine
Corps birthday ball to
share history and cama-
raderie with the Marines.
After the cake-cutting
ceremony, the guest
speaker, 1st Sgt. Robert
L. Gaines, told the
Marines stories about his
20 years in the Marine
Corps, his experiences in
Korea and serving with
Chesty Puller.
Gaines was stationed
at Marine barracks in
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in
1950. One day he was
told to report to the com-
manding officer, which
just happened to be Col.
Lewis B. "Chesty"
Puller, arguably one of
the most well-known
and highly decorated
Marines to ever serve in

the Corps. Chesty Puller
promoted Gaines to cor-
poral on the spot.
"Then he said, 'I'm so
proud of you, son. Soon
you'll be a sergeant and a
staff NCO,'" recalled
Gaines. "The way he
was talking, I thought I
would end up comman-
dant of the Marine
The Korean War
broke out on June 25,
1950, when nearly
100,000 North Korean
soldiers crossed the 38th
Parallel into South
Korea and quickly over-
whelmed the lightly-
armed South Korea
Army positions,
explained Gaines.
Gaines was assigned
to Fox Company, 2nd
Battalion, 7th Marines at
Camp Pendleton.
The 1st Marine
Division arrived at
Inchon five days after
the Inchon landing. Less
than two weeks later,

80, from Plattsmouth,
The Marines' main
task was to keep the
main supply route open
for the 8,000 Marines

northwest comer of the
Chosin Reservoir at

The Marines of Fox
Co. could not abandon
their fellow Marines,
said Gaines.
"The 1st Marine
Division was not at all
happy with the 78-mile
long line of supply," said
Gaines of the MSR,
which was a 78-mile trek
through the snowy
Korean mountains to get
to the Sea of Japan.
Fox Co. was posi-
tioned at Toktong Pass, a
high ridge overlooking
the MSR. It was later
dubbed "Fox Hill."
"The hill was sur-
rounded by 10,000
Chinese soldiers the
odds were 40 to 1," said
Gaines remembers
getting shot in the shoul-
der, but when he
assessed the damage, he
found no wound, no bul-
let nothing.
"That night in my fox-
hole, my shirt pulls out

and I reach back and the
slug falls out of my uni-
form," said Gaines of the
bullet that pierced his
uniform but not his skin.
"I carried it for a long

days and nights of
intense fighting, 75 per-
cent of Fox Co.'s 240
Marines were killed,
wounded or captured,
said Gaines.

fought off the Chinese,
keeping the MSR open.
"We kept it open, res-

cuing the 1st Battalion
(7th Marine Regiment),"
said Gaines.
Of the "Chosin few,"
Gaines believes there are
about 50-100 Chosin
Marines still alive today.
After the Korean War,
Gaines went on to serve
as a recruiter as well as in
embassy duty.
He retired in 1968
after his last tour with
13th Marines, 5th
Marine Division at
Camp Pendleton.
After retiring, he
taught high school
English and theater for
18 years.
He is now the owner
of an antique shop in Las
Cruces, N.M.
Forty-one years
removed from active
duty, Gaines still enjoys
attending birthday balls
and being around
Marines, passing on the
history and traditions of
the Corps.
"This will be the most
memorable Marine
Corps birthday I will
ever have ever celebrat-
ed," said Gaines.

November is

Native American and Alaska Native Heritage Month

"Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom, an intense and absorbing respect for life, enriching faith in a supreme power, and
principles of truth, honesty, generosity, equity and brotherhood as a guide to mundane relations."
Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux
From Bureau of Indian Affairs
U.S. Department of the Interior

hat started at the turn of the last century

as an effort to gain a day of recognition
for the significant contributions the first
Americans made to the establishment and growth of
the United States, has resulted in a whole month being
designated for that purpose.

One of the very propo-
nents of an American
Indian Day was Dr.
Arthur C. Parker, a
Seneca Indian, who was
the director of the
Museum of Arts and
Science in Rochester,
N.Y. He persuaded the
Boy Scouts ofAmerica to
set aside a day for the
"First Americans" and for
three years they adopted
such a day. In 1915, the
annual Congress of the
American Indian
Association meeting in
Lawrence, Kan., formally
approved a plan concern-
ing American Indian Day.
It directed its president,
Rev. Sherman Coolidge,
an Arapahoe, to call upon
the country to observe
such a day. Coolidge
issued a proclamation
Sept. 28, 1915, which
declared the second

Saturday of each May as
an American Indian Day
and contained the first
formal appeal for recog-
nition of Indians as citi-
The year before this
proclamation was
issued, Red Fox James, a
Blackfoot Indian, rode
horseback from state to
state seeking approval
for a day to honor
Indians. On Dec. 14,
1915, he presented the
endorsements of 24 state
governments at the
White House. There is
no record, however, of
such a national day
being proclaimed.
The first American
Indian Day in a state was
declared on the second
Saturday in May 1916
by the governor of New
York. Several states cele-
brate the fourth Friday in

September. In Illinois,
for example, legislators
enacted such a day in
1919. Presently, several
states have designated
Columbus Day as Native
American Day, but it
continues to be a day we
observe without any
recognition as a national
legal holiday.
In 1990 President
George H.W. Bush
approved a joint resolu-
tion designating
November 1990
"National American
Indian Heritage Month."
Similar proclamations,
under variants on the
name (including "Native
American Heritage
Month" and "National
American Indian and
Alaska Native Heritage
Month") have been
issued each year since

Native Americans: a long history of military participation

Prepared for DoD by CEHIP Inc.
U.S. Department of the Interior

Native Americans have participated
with distinction in United States military
actions for more than 200 years. Their
courage, determination and fighting
spirit were recognized by American mil-
itary leaders as early as the 18th century.
Many tribes were involved in the War
of 1812, and Native Americans fought
for both sides as auxiliary troops in the
Civil War. Scouting the enemy was rec-
ognized as a particular skill of the Native
American Soldier. In 1866, the U.S.
Army established its Indian Scouts to
exploit this aptitude. The scouts were
active in the American West in the late
1800s and early 1900s, accompanying
Gen. John J. Pershing's expedition to

Mexico in pursuit of Pancho Villa in
1916. They were deactivated in 1947
when their last member retired from the
Army in ceremonies at Fort Huachuca,
Ariz. Native Americans from Indian
Territory were also recruited by Teddy
Roosevelt's Rough Riders and saw
action in Cuba in the Spanish-American
War in 1898. As the military entered the
20th century, Native Americans had
already made a substantial contribution
through military service and were on the
brink of playing an even larger role.
Contributions in combat
It is estimated that more than 12,000
Native Americans served in the United
States military in World War I.
Approximately 600 Oklahoma Native
Americans, mostly Choctaw and
Cherokee, were assigned to the 142nd

Infantry of the 36th Texas-Oklahoma
National Guard Division. The 142nd
saw action in France and its Soldiers
were widely recognized for their contri-
butions in battle.
The outbreak of World War II brought
Native American warriors back to the
battlefield in defense of their homeland.
Although now eligible for the draft by
virtue of the Snyder Act, which gave cit-
izenship to American Indians in 1924,
conscription alone does not account for
the disproportionate number of Indians
who joined the armed services. More
than 44,000, out of a total Native
American population of less than
350,000, served with distinction
between 1941 and 1945 in both
European and Pacific theaters of war.
Native American men and women on

the home front also showed an intense
desire to serve their country, and were an
integral part of the war effort. More than
40,000 Native Americans left their reser-
vations to work in ordnance depots, fac-
tories, and other war industries. They
also invested more than $50 million in
war bonds, and contributed generously
to the Red Cross and the Army and
Navy Relief societies.
The Native Americans' strong sense
of patriotism and courage emerged once
again during the Vietnam era. More than
42,000 Native Americans, more than 90
percent of them volunteers, fought in
Vietnam. Native American contributions
in United States military combat contin-
ued in the 1980s and 1990s as they saw
duty in Grenada, Panama Somalia and
the Persian Gulf.

"I think they (Native Americans) can be made of excellent use, as scouts and light troops." Gen. George Washington, 1778

Going to be cold, all right
The Blackfeet tribe asked their chief in autumn if the
coming winter was going to be cold or not. Not really
knowing the answer, the chief replied that the members of
the village were to collect wood in order to be prepared.
Being a good leader, he then went to the nearest phone
booth and called the National Weather Service and asked,
"Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone
responded, "Yes, this winter is going to be quite cold." So
the chief went back to speed up his people to collect more
wood to be prepared. Two weeks later, he called the
National Weather Service again, and asked, "Are you
absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Yes, I'm absolutely sure," the weatherman replied, "the
Blackfeet tribe are collecting wood as fast as they can."

Here they come again
One popular cartoon shows a flying saucer making a
landing while a Native American watches. The caption
was "Oh, no not again."

VT4 instructor pilot wins four-day

adventure race national championship

From TraWing 6

New Hampshire-based adventure racing
teams Granite AR/Granite AR-1 are the win-
ners of the 2009 United States Adventure
Racing Association (USARA) National
Championship, held Oct. 22-24 in Pilot Point,
VT-4 Instructor Pilot Lt. Melissa Coombes, a
member of Granite AR, helped the team take
home the national championship trophy -
something she described as a "a dream that
came true" for the team's six dedicated athletes.
More than 30 hours in length, the adventure
race combined approximately 110 miles of
mountain biking, 20-plus miles of windy and
choppy paddling and 20 miles of intense
Collected in a particular order, the 42 check-
points (CPs) outlined the Texas course and
offered a distinct type of connect-the-dot scav-
enger hunt for the 62-plus teams that competed
in the event. With no GPS units allowed, each
team had to navigate the Texas countryside
using nothing but a compass and map.

"The two (three-person) Granite AR teams
stuck together throughout the entire event and
were at each other's aid during periods of phys-
ical exhaustion," Coombes said. The tempera-
tures reached almost 70 degrees during the day
and plummeted close to freezing during the
night, compounded with wind that topped near-
ly 20 miles per hour.
"With five inches of rain received the day
before the start, and it was a very muddy, cold
race," she recalled. "When mud is splashing in
your eyes, your body is soaked from head to
toe, and hypothermia is attempting to set in,
you need to be there every step of the way for
your teammates and friends. We're a team that
thinks as a single unit."
Crossing the finish line together in a tie, race
directors awarded both teams with the national
championship trophy. The trophy will be in
Team Granite AR's possession for the next
year, until they have to defend the title at the
2010 USARANational Championships, sched-
uled to be held in Pennsylvania.

2010 Scholarships

for Military Children

Program now open

By Tammy L. Moody
DeCA Marketing and Mass Communication Specialist

FORT LEE, Va. The holidays are fast approaching, and they can be
a fun family time as children away at college come home, and other stu-
dents get their holiday break. It's also a time for students and parents to
apply for the 2010 Scholarships for Military Children Program that opens
in November.
Scholarship applications are currently available in commissaries world-
wide and online through a link at https://www.commissaries.com and
directly at http://www.militaryscholarorg. Since the program began in
2000, it has awarded $7.3 million in scholarships to almost 5,000 children
of service members.
The scholarship kickoff coincides with National Military Family
Month, and is an example of commissaries supporting their local commu-
nities by helping to improve the quality of life for military families, said
Defense Commissary Agency Director and CEO Philip E. Sakowitz Jr.
"Being part of something that makes higher education more affordable
for military families is thrilling, as we feel it makes a better future possi-
ble for their children," he said. "The program awards $1,500 scholarships
to well-rounded, accomplished service members' children, enabling these
families to save some on their children's tuition."
Only dependent, unmarried children, younger than age 21 (age 23 if
enrolled as a full- time student at a college or university) of active duty per-
sonnel, Reserve, Guard and retired military members, survivors of service
members who died while on active duty, or survivors of individuals who
died while receiving retired pay from the military may apply for a schol-
arship. Eligibility is determined using DEERS, the Defense Enrollment
Eligibility Reporting System database. Applicants should ensure that they,
as well as their sponsor, are enrolled in the DEERS database and have a
current ID card. The applicant must be planning to attend, or already be
attending, an accredited college or university full time in the fall of 2010,
or be enrolled in a program of studies designed to transfer directly into a
four-year program.
Applicants should prepare to submit an essay on the following topic:
"You can travel back in time; however, you cannot change events. What
point in history would you visit and why?" Applications must be turned in
to a commissary by close of business Feb. 17. At least one scholarship will
be awarded at every commissary location with qualified applicants.
The scholarships program is administered by Fisher House
Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to service
members and their families. Scholarship Managers, a national, nonprofit,
scholarship management services organization, manages and awards the
scholarships. Commissary vendors, manufacturers, brokers, suppliers and
the general public donate money to the program, and every dollar donat-
ed goes directly to funding the scholarships.
