Out of the Wilderness was theme for annual Chapel summer programFrom Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay Chapele week of June 16 to 20, nearly 85 children were welcomed to the 2014 Vacation Bible School entitled Wilderness Escape: Where God Guides and Provides. For ve days children ages 5 to 11 learned of Gods love and faithfulness when facing dicult life circumstances. Coordinated by Donna Horn, director of Religious Education, Clainetta Jeer son, VBS director, Jackie omas, assis tant VBS director, the chapel sta and a host of volunteers, this command religious program oered school-age chil dren an opportunity to engage in faithbased learning in a caring and fun-lled environment. When asked further about the 2014 VBS, Jeerson said, is was a fantastic program. e students were placed in one of 12 tribes and allowed to experience the wilder ness from crossing the Red Sea to gathering manna from the ground. All week we stressed the importance of trusting God. ere is no way VBS would be a suc cess without the support of Command Chaplain Ted Fanning, Deputy Command Chaplain Lara Byrd, Chaplain Catherine Pace, the chapel sta RPs, plus the more than 30 volunteers who work each day to make VBS a success. When its all said and done, the most important thing is that the children and their fami lies have a memorable rst-hand experi ence with Gods Word and his people. We were blessed to be able to provide this program for our military families. Children began each day at a Celebration in the Wilderness Escape meeting area where the tribes of Israel learned fun motions to upbeat Bible songs like I Will Trust You and is is How We Overcome. With the help of Bible Buddies like Mo the Mouse, Humphrey the Camel, Chase the Cheetah, Issac the Goat and Rocky the Wombat, students learned that they can trust God with the details of their lives. rough out the morning students moved from one tent to another to explore Gods Word in new and inter esting ways. At Moses Tent students learned about the challenges and victories the children of Israel experienced as they made the great exodus out of the land of Egypt. At other tents like Fun and Games, VBS participants enjoyed silly races and other fun outdoor activities. In the Israelite Camp, set up like a Middle Eastern mar ket place, students made sandals, tamNew CO of MFPU Kings Bay relieves Cmdr.

Relief society seeks volunteers Navy-Marine Relief Reserves oer chance to stay Navy Navy Reserve By Mark MatsunagaPacific Fleet Public AffairsShips and aircraft in the next Rim of the Pacic Exercise could be run ning on biofuels, and they wont even need to know it, according to speakers at an Alternative Fuels Overview brieng for RIMPAC 2014 participants. e brieng drew more than 40 ocers and ocials from seven nations Australia, Brunei, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Mexico and the United States. Joelle Simonpietri, U.S. Pacic Commands operational manager for energy and contingency basing, spelled out the need to develop al ternative fuels in order to reduce a major driver of conict. is is especially true in the Pa cic, which has the worlds largest energy demand and lowest fossil en ergy resources; where the tyranny of distance is most acute, and ev erything must travel long distances. She also noted that only a handful of the 36 nations in the Indo-AsiaPacic region are petroleum export ers. Fossil fuel price volatility has meant that in several of the past 10 years, the U.S. Department of De fense has had to do signicant bud get machinations, Simonpietri said. Development of alternative fuels closer to operations shortens and diversies supply lines. It can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and foster good neigh bor cooperation among nations. Simonpietri said Department of Defense Alternative Fuel Policy re quires that replacement fuels must be drop-in fuels and meet existing fuel specications. e biofuels must utilize existing transportation and distribution in frastructure and require no modi cations to weapons platforms. Moreover, these alternative fu els must be cost-competitive with petroleum fuel and have lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions that are no worse than conventional fuels while also complying with existing procurement, energy, health and safety laws and regulations. Biofuels can be made from a va riety of feedstocks, including crop residues, woody biomass, dedicated energy crops, vegetable oils, animal fats, and algae. Simonpietri also made the impor tant point that biofuel production must complement rather than com pete with food crops. e drop-in biofuel the Defense Department wants is not the same as the familiar ethanol and biodies el rstand second-generation biofuels that are used in cars and trucks. What the Defense Department is pursuing is third-generation biofuel drop-in replacements for diesel and jet fuels that are used in aircraft and ships. ese biofuels are much more advanced, have far less oxy gen than ethanol and biodiesel, and contain the same energy density as their petroleum-based counter parts. Chris Tindal, director for opera tional energy in the Oce of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, said that in RIMPAC 2012 the Navy successfully demon strated the Great Green Fleet, oper ating a carrier strike groups surface ships and aircraft with a biofuel blend without incident. In fact, the Great Green Fleet 2012 demonstration was a signicant milestone of the Navys testing and certication program for drop-in biofuels derived from used cooking oils and algae. e next milestone, Tindal said, is 2016, when the Navy intends to sail the Great Green Fleet 2016. Rather than one group of ships, he said, the Navy plans for biofuels to comprise up to 50 percent of the fuel used by de ploying ships and aircraft throughout the eet in calendar year 2016. Procurement has already begun for advanced drop-in biofuels. Selection of platforms and loca tions for the 2016 eort will happen later. However, biofuel use in the Navy will not end at the conclusion of 2016 after the sailing of the Great Green Fleet, as it will mark the start of the Navys New Normal, Tindal said. Leading up to that milestone, the Navy has already issued solicitations for operational quantities of alter native fuel in the Western U.S. and Western Pacic. Alternative fuels could be pur chased and distributed through Navy oilers as early as January 2015. He and Simonpietri stressed that in order to be accepted for Defense Department use, biofuels or biofuel blends must be virtually indis tinguishable from their fossil fuel equivalents. Because of that, participants in RIMPAC 2016 could very well be operating on biofuels without needing to be aware of it. Tindal and Simonpietri encour aged the foreign members of the audience to facilitate government cooperation, and oered to share U.S. test and certication data for al ternative fuels. ey also encouraged the o cers to consider future possibili ties where their nation could both supply fuel to the U.S. Department of Defense and produce it for their own military and aviation use. RIMPAC is a multinational mari time exercise that takes place in and around the Hawaiian islands and Southern California. Twenty-two nations, 49 ships, six submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are partici pating in the biennial exercise from June 26 to Aug. 1. e worlds largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps foster and sustain cooper ative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security in the worlds oceans. RIM PAC 2014 is the 24th exercise in the series that began in 1971.Biofuel to sail Green Fleet in 2016 Navy Reserve and in order to eect com plete repairs, main junc tions serving several facilities must be shut down. e new materials used are resilient to water intrusion and should last at least for several decades, said Chris Cimento of the Kings Bay Public Works Oce. e outage is expected to last from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., so plan accordingly.

Leaders assessing Sunni militantsBy Cheryl Pellerin DoD News, Defense Media ActivityU.S. military eorts in Iraq are focus ing on securing the American Embas sy and personnel in Baghdad, assess ing the situation in the country and advising Iraqi security forces, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said July 3. Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey briefed the Pentagon press corps, focusing on the U.S. mission and role in Iraq. Both are important components of President Barack Obamas strategy in Iraq, the secretary said, which in volves supporting Iraqi forces and helping Iraqs leaders resolve the political crisis that enabled the advance of the armed militant extremist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL. By reinforcing security at the U.S. embassy [and] its support facilities at Baghdad International Airport, were helping provide our diplomats time and space to work with Sunni, Kurd and Shia political leaders as they attempt to form a new inclusive national unity government, Hagel told reporters. By better understanding conditions on the ground and the capabilities of Iraqi security forces, he added, well be better able to help advise them as they combat ISIL forces inside their own country. About 200 U.S. military advisers are on the ground in Iraq, said Hagel, noting that the United States, with Iraqi assistance, has established a joint operations center in Baghdad. We have personnel on the ground in Erbil where our second joint operations center has achieved initial operating capability [and] assessment teams are evalu ating the capabilities and cohesiveness of Iraqi forces, the secretary said. e six U.S. assessment teams are focusing on ques tions such as the strength and cohesion of the Iraqi security forces, the strength and locations of ISIL, how deeply embedded they are, how each component ts into the larger sectarian dynamic at play in the country, the process of forming a new government in the country, and other material issues, Hagel added. Both the chairman and I are getting some assess ments back, early assessments, through [U.S. Central Command Commander Army Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III] who is overseeing all of this, the secretary said. We wont have the full complement of all those assessments for a while but that is ongoing. e teams in Iraq today have one mission and that is assessments, he added. I dont know what the assessments are going to come back and say or what they would recommend. Well wait to see what that is and what Gen. Austin and Gen. Dempsey then recommend, the secretary said. None of these troops are performing combat mis sions. None will perform combat missions, Hagel said. e situation in Iraq is complex and uid. But theres no exclusively military solution to the threats posed by ISIL, he added. Our approach is deliberate and exible. It is designed to bolster our diplomatic ef forts and support the Iraqi people. We will remain prepared to protect our people and our interests in Iraq.Assessment: Iraqis can hold Baghdad By Jim GaramoneDoD News, Defense Media Activitye United States has sent troops back to Iraq because it is in Americas interest for the country to remain stable and to counter Sunni militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta said July 3. Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey told a Pentagon news conference that Iraqs leaders must form an inclusive government that re spects the rights of all groups. Iraq can and should be a U.S. partner in countering terrorism, Dempsey said. e Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has captured large sections of the countrys north and west over the past few weeks, is a regional threat, Dempsey said, but could become a transnational and global threat in the future. ey have made some pretty signicant and rapid advances. Yet theyre stretched right now, the chairman said, stretched to control what they have gained and stretched across their logistics lines of communication. ere are cur rently nearly 800 American ser vice members in Iraq, with some protecting the American embassy and other facilities. Other U.S. troops are assess ing the situation on the ground and have now opened a second joint operations center in Erbil in northern Iraq after establishing one in Baghdad last month. President Barack Obama or dered up to 300 special forces to the country last month to provide advice on how best to assist the Iraqi military in their ght against Sunni militants. Meanwhile, Iraqi security forc es have stiened resistance in face of the militants gains. I dont have the assessment teams exact language, but some initial insights are that the ISF is stiening, that theyre capable of defending Baghdad, Dempsey said. Iraqi forces would be challenged however, if they went on the oensive against the militants, he added. Dempsey emphasized the ability of Iraqs military to defend the country depends on political leaders in Baghdad uniting to form a government of national unity. In addition, what role the Unit ed States will play in Iraq going forward, he said, depends on the conclusions of the U.S. mili tary assessment teams, as well as Iraqs political progress. Currently, U.S. advisors in Iraq are not involved in combat opera tions, Dempsey said, but he did not rule that out. If the assessment comes back and reveals that it would be ben ecial to this eort and to our na tional security interests to put the advisors in a dierent role, I will rst consult with the secretary, we will consult with the president, he said. Well provide that option and we will move ahead. Even so, he said U.S. involvement in Iraq does not amount to mission creep. Choosing to characterize it instead as mis sion match. We will match the resources we apply with the authorities and responsibilities that go with them based on the mission we undertake, and that is to be deter mined, the chairman said.

By Cpl. Nathan KnapkeMarine Corps Base Hawaii | June 06, 2014Kaneohe Bay is known to be one of the larg est breeding grounds for Hammerhead sharks in the world. During the months of May and June, Hammer heads give birth to their pups. A female Hammerhead can give birth to 20 to 40 pups at once. After birth, the mother leaves her young and they must fend for themselves. Potentially, there could be hundreds of thousands of baby Hammerhead sharks swimming in the bay. Although these baby sharks are not threatening to humans, their presence attracts other large sharks that prey on the newborn pups. Since May 19, there have been over 60 sightings of adult sharks looking for a baby Hammerhead meal in the waters surrounding Marine Corps Base Ha waii. We havent had this many shark sightings dur ing these months before, Samuel Mench, the beach supervisor for the Marine Corps Base Hawaii Beach Guard, said. We are used to seeing an increase dur ing these months but what we are seeing this year isnt just one or two every day. We are seeing sharks in packs swimming closer to the shoreline. Mench explained the importance of shark safety. We want people to Parenting classes offered on MondaysAre you frustrated with your children?

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho Classic May 10, 2012 By MCC Anastasia PuscianNavy Recruiting District San Diego, Public AffairsA Future Sailor acted quickly to help save a 6-year-old boy from drowning at the San Diego Marriott while waiting to enter the Navy Delayed Entry Program. Chaney Bryant, 34, was staying at the hotel so he could complete his military processing and take the oath of enlist ment the next morning. at evening as he was relaxing at the hotel pool he heard a mother frantic that her child was at the bottom of the pool and unresponsive. e mother jumped in the pool trying to save her child, but she was unable to swim and started to panic even more. Hearing the commotion and seeing what was happening, Bryant reacted quickly by diving into the pool helping the mother to the shallow end of the pool. He then swam to the boy and pulled him out of the water and started to perform CPR. I saw that he swallowed a lot of water, so I pushed on his stomach and he threw up some water, Bryant said. I then held his nose and gave him one big breath. He started to cough and breathe on his own. I stayed with him until the ambulance came. First responders arrived within 5 minutes and took the boy to a nearby hospital where he made a complete recovery that evening. After the situation had calmed, Bry ant said all he could think about was how grateful he was that the boy was alive. I felt fortunate to be there, said Bry ant. I was about to leave the pool and the closest people were on the second oor who were watching what was happening.Navy photo by MC2 Susan CornellHospital Corpsman 2nd Class Aaron Wilt gives basic CPR instructions to Naval Sea Cadets Corps, assigned to the Franklin D.

By Hala AbdullaMarine Corps Base Quanticoe quick and shocking fall of Mosul, Iraqs sec ond largest and predomi nantly Sunni city, to the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, should not come as a surprise to those monitoring the news out of the troubled region, especially Syria and Iraq. ere are several indica tors that suggested such fall was only a matter of time. ISIS has maintained a strong footprint in Iraqs western province of An bar, particularly Falluja capitalizing on the SunniArab frustration against the Shiite-majority gov ernment headed by Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki. Following April elec tions in which Al-Maliki garnered majority of the votes, and his looming third term, ISIS began es calating plans to expand beyond Falluja to create a momentum. Days before the fall of Mosul, ISIS attempted to besiege Samara, home of the two Shiite shrines that were bombed and was the tipping point of a bloody sectarian war in 2006 and beyond. is and more indicates that ISIS was moving forward with its ambitions, as reected in its name, to establish an Islamic Khilafa in Iraq and Syria. However, the devas tating retreat of the Iraqi army in Mosul on June 10 in the face of a couple thousands of ISIS ghters certainly needs a critical reexamination. Why did the Iraqi army collapse in Mosul? According to sources, there were two army di visions of roughly 30,000 soldiers, in addition to thousands of federal and local police. e narrative coming out of Iraq suggests that leadership in Mosul de serted their posts rst, leav ing behind their soldiers stumbling between an approaching vicious ISIS, hostile and unwelcoming locals in Mosul, along with rumors of orders to withdraw created confusion and lowered morale among the soldiers. ere are many factors contributed to this deba cle. Military experts have identied some over the course of the Iraq war, but recent events have shed light on dierent and new factors. Corruption, nepotism, a lack of sucient opera tional planning, and ques tionable loyalties are some known factors. Additionally, the armys leadership, structure, and foundation reect the fragmented political envi ronment built on a sectar ian basis. e army lacks a unied national identity and co hesion. is led many pro fessional and competent ocers to leave the army. Moreover, the majority of lower rank soldiers consider the army as a mere employment opportunity to put food on the table. One could argue that the former Iraqi army was perceived as one of the most experienced and professional armies in the region. However, examining that recent history, there are similar charac teristics and events that led to the formation of the Iraqi army today. Corruption and nepotism existed in the former army, including as well as the targeting of respectful military leaders by Sad dam. e killing of his own cousin and borther-in-law Adnan Khairallah, Saddams Defense Minister, a very popular personality among the ocer corps was one example. e major dierence that separates the former army from the current one is the element of fear. Saddam had ruled the former army by fear. It is said that there was a unit dubbed the execution battalion in the rear of the battleeld awaiting deserters. Senior ocers who failed against the Iranians were summarily executed. Moreover, the former army was drafted where everyone had to serve in cluding college graduates who enjoyed an increased level of education, profes sionalism and personal responsibility compared with the current army ranks. Draft military ser vice has been inactive since 2003. Like the former army, the current army is suer ing from exhaustion. Saddam had dragged the army back then into three wars and by the time the U.S. forces approached Baghdad in 2003, there was little resistance. A similar scenario was re-enacted in Mosul. is army has been ghting Al-Qaida in Iraq AQI, re branded as ISIS, for al most ten years now, it is a weary army. Interviews of soldiers eeing Mosul, accounts of eyewitnesses that cir culated in the social me dia, and talking to people from inside Iraq, suggest that ISIS managed to over come thousands of Iraqi security forces stationed inside and on the outskirt of Mosul by launching a carefully orchestrated strategic psychological war never before seen by Iraqis, whether army or civilians. While Saddam had al ways kept a tight control on the media and ow of information which restricted Iraqis to one gov ernment-owned channel, social media platforms, countless satellite channels and the accessibility of smartphones enabled an information ow and reinforced spreading ISISs propaganda, which claims great victories and the gruesome execu tion of its enemies. As an example of the wide use of smartphones among soldiers, some lo cal sources said Iraqi soldiers often received their orders via text messages not the usual classied means of communication. ISIS capitalized on this and released multiple videos of beheadings, mili tary parades, and boatful predictions and rumors of captured and executed Iraqi army leaders. is contributed to the collapsing morale of both army and civilians as well, pushed the Iraqi government, belatedly, to block all social media outlets in an attempt to hinder ISISs psychological war propa ganda. ough ISIS is no more than a couple of thou sands teamed up with lo cal insurgents, Baathists and members of former Iraqi army and intelligence, their propaganda were far reaching. Iraqis are just now real izing the breadth and im pact of a well carried out psychological war that has in turn cost hundreds of lives.

Devon McRainey American Forces Network AfghanistanDefense Logistics Agency representatives met here in late June with a com mercial Afghan company to conduct the rst sale of useable non-military vehicles, appliances and fur niture no longer needed by the U.S. government. DLA is responsible for the disposition of excess property received from the military services. e sale of the items, known as white goods, will provide regional economic stimulus to the Af ghan economy and help the U.S. government avoid property disposal costs usually associated with the scrapping process, DLA Sales Contracting Of cer Ron Williams said. Included in the sale were a variety of previ ously used, commercial o-the-shelf items such as pneumatic tools, air conditioning units, of ce furniture, tractors, water trucks, forklifts and construction machinery. Many of the basic life support equipment items available, like shower and bath trailers, are no longer needed due to changing force requirements. e items that are being sold, once imported into the country of Af ghanistan, are items that can be resold and have economic value to the buyers. ey will pick up the items and either sell them outright or will use them in their own business to gain some type of economic benet from it, Williams said. In January, the sales contracts were advertised under a competitive sale bidding process on the fed eral government contract ing website. e criteria for contract awards required that the company must be based in Afghanistan, was owned 100 percent by Af ghan citizens, and submit ted the highest bid as a per centage of the propertys acquisition value. e sale saw the release of property to a local Par wan province company and included a shower and bath trailer, two water trucks, a forklift and two trenching machines. After DLA releases property, a buyer must take it to an Afghan Inland Customs Depot for assessment and valuation. e most important eect of the sale is the economic stimulus to the Afghan economy and the goodwill that we are fos tering with the Afghan government and local businesses, Williams said. e sale also allows us to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars as we are able to recover more money by selling the items than we would by turning them into scrap and sell ing them by the pound. e Bagram sale is the rst of several planned white goods sales at U.S. sites across Afghanistan.Afghans buy equipmentPhoto by Kathy Wigginton A truck is moved in preparation for the first sale of useable non-military property at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, June 25. From Coast Guard CompassI dont know but Ive been told, Iceberg duty is mighty cold. Hip-o, hop-o, bring out the swab-o left-o, right-o, left. Guide right. Six decades after enlisting in the United States Coast Guard, Rep. Howard Coble recites the very cadence he delivered as a recruit. is time, however, the cadence was being delivered far from the training elds of Cape May. e memories of his rst days of boot camp were being recalled in the hallowed halls of Congress. Its strange how that comes back after all these years, Coble said. e words of his cadence lingered with in the walls of his oce. Walls stacked high with memorabilia. Alongside politi cal caricatures and photos of Coble with constituents or elected ocials were sym bols of the Coast Guard: the services seal, an oar, tokens of appreciation, ags from commemorations all across the nation. And yes, even a plaque from an icebreak er; a curious ship to be on display for the North Carolina native. But each of these items represents a memory for Coble. His journey started in North Carolina, 250 miles inland, where he knew virtu ally nothing about the Coast Guard prior to enlisting. It was 1949 when he was at tending Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. His college classmates had gone to the recruiting oce and talked him into going with them. Why the sud den interest? I wrecked my dads car, for one thing, chuckled Coble. Ran it right o the road. I had a college deferment. So I could have stayed and rolled the dice and see how that played out but after I wrecked my dads car I thought this would be one less expense for him. Coast Guard photo by PO2 Patrick KelleyRep.

From Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyResearchers show that migratory birds are un able to use their magnetic compass in the presence of urban electromagnetic noise. e ndings open up new areas of study for magnetic sensors. Researchers working on DARPAs Quantum Ef fects in Biological Envi ronments program have shown that the electromagnetic noise that per meates modern urban environments can disrupt a birds internal magnetic compass. e ndings settle a decades-long debate into whether low-level, arti cial electric and magnetic elds can aect biological processes in higher verte brates. For DARPA, the results hint at a new class of bioinspired sensors at the intersection of biology and quantum physics. In an online Nature paper, research teams from the University of Oldenburg and the University of Oxford, led by Prof. Henrik Mouritsen, document a series of experiments using European robins that were carried out from 2005 to 2011. Night-migratory songbirds like European robins have an internal magnetic compass that allows them to choose the correct mi gratory direction during the spring and fall migration seasons. However, when the rob ins used in the Oldenburg experiments were ex posed to everyday levels of electromagnetic back ground noise, the birds failed to orient themselves correctly. When the researchers later shielded the birds from background electro magnetic noise, the birds oriented to the correct mi gratory direction. Birds tested in rural environments, far from sources of electromag netic noise, required no screening to properly ori ent using their magnetic compass. Full details of the exper iments are available in the paper. Electromagnetic noise is emitted everywhere that humans use electronic devices. e observations from the Oldenburg study sug gest that birds utilize a biological system that is sensitive to man-made electromagnetic noise with intensities well below the guidelines for human expo sure adopted by the World Health Organization. But why is DARPA studying bird migration? According to Dr. Matt Goodman, the Program Manager for QuBE, one reason is that the observed phenomena might have their roots in quan tum physics. Nature is an extraor dinary test bed. We think its possible that over mil lions of years of evolution, biological organisms have developed systems that exploit quantum phys ics, Goodman said. e QuBE program is designed to test this hypothesis. e work were pursuing ques tions fundamental as sumptions about how bio logical processes work. If manifestly quantum eects are shown to be at play in biological systems, and scientists can under stand the mechanisms at work, the ndings could lead to fundamentally new technologies, including bio-inspired sensors. In addition to explor ing magnetic navigation, QuBE researchers are also studying photosynthesis, olfaction, and the underlying theoretical framework needed to link biology and quantum phenomena. e time and cost to develop many of the tra ditional sensors that the Department of Defense uses is substantial. Nature, on the other hand, has al ready evolved extraordi nary capabilitiesthink of a dogs sense of smell, Goodman said. In addi tion to being extremely capable, natural sensors are also robust, durable, ex hibit great sensitivity and enormous selectivity, and are produced amid the dirt and dust of the natu ral world; nature doesnt need clean rooms. Were hoping to follow natures lead to capture those qualities in man-made sensor systems.DARPA study uses birdsPhoto by Keven LawExperiments using European robins are being used in a bio-inspired sensor study. From U.S. Pacific Fleet Public AffairsA newly released scien tic report demonstrates the viability of a new method to estimate re ceived sound levels during real scenarios and analyz es movements of satellitetagged individuals of three species of marine mam mals exposed to Navy mid-frequency active so nar around Kauais Pacic Missile Range Facility. is is exciting news in several ways, not least of which is the promise this new integrated ap proach holds for learning how sonar aects marine mammals, said Julie Riv ers, natural and marine re sources program manager for the U.S. Pacic Fleet, which funded the study as part of its Marine Mammal Monitoring Program. e report is co-au thored by Robin Baird and Daniel Webster of Cas cadia Research, Brandon Southall of Southall Environmental Associates, and Stephen Martin of the U.S. Navy. Morgan Richie, the Navy technical representative at Naval Facilities Engineer ing Command Pacic, provided technical over sight for the project. On ve occasions pre ceding Navy training events the researchers tagged a total of 23 marine mammals. e data from the satellite tags enabled them to track points along the animals path and, in some cases, due to more sophisticated tags, their dive movements. e range facilitys hydrophones, on the ocean oor northwest of Kauai, were used to record data on the actual levels of sound energy from sonar transmissions. at data enabled the scientists to use math ematical modeling to produce estimates of the range of sound levels to which some of the ani mals were exposed and to assess their responses. Some tags didnt provide enough information, as often happens, and many of the tagged animals were not on or near the range during the brief periods when sonar was being used. Nonetheless, received sound levels were com piled and movements tracked for four animals: two rough-toothed dolphins, a bottle-nose dol phin and a short-nned pilot whale. e researchers found that the bottlenose dolphin showed no largescale movements out of the area during sonar exposures, and a shortnned pilot whale actu ally moved toward areas of higher sonar levels dur ing the third day of a 3-day period of regular mid-fre quency active sonar use. While the data from the rough-toothed dolphins are more limited than those for the bottlenose dolphin and the shortnned pilot whale, results are similar in that the ani mals did not make broad scale movement into areas where received sound lev els would have been lower. e sample is obvi ously small, but we are encouraged by the pros pects for using this integrated approach to learn more about the behavior of sound in the water and how it aects marine life, said Rivers.Navy photo by Ari S. FriedlaenderAri Friedlaender, a Duke University Marine Laboratory researcher, attaches a D-TAG to a pilot whale off the coast of Kona, Hawaii. Navy tracking mammals Coble was soon a recruit at Training Center Cape May. After boot camp, Co bles rst duty station was a port security unit just outside of Portsmouth, Va. He hoped for adventure as a self-proclaimed frus trated geographer. Im just interested in places Ive never been be fore, Coble said. While he sought adventure, he wound up with the humdrum duties of life at a new unit. My initial Coast Guard duty was garbage man, Coble recalled. I was as signed to the garbage de tail. I wasnt even the driv er. I was the pick-up man. I was at the bottom thats for sure. After three months on the garbage detail he at tended storekeeper school in Groton, Conn. Upon graduating from school he asked for a position in Seattle. I had never been west of the Mississippi before, so I thought what the heck, Coble said. After ve and a half years of active duty ser vice, Coble transitioned into his role as an ocer in the Coast Guard Re serve and continued to serve for 22 years. At his last unit, he served as the commanding ocer of a Coast Guard Reserve unit in Wilmington, N.C. Looking back on his time in service, he cautioned those who are new to the Coast Guard on hav ing the right attitude. His one piece of advice? Dont do what I did in my initial two years of ac tive duty and try to bitch, gripe and complain, Coble said. I realized this outt is bigger than you are pal and yeah, you aint going to win it. Its easy to do that. To complain and gripe. But it serves no good purpose. After his time on active duty, Coble went on to receive degrees from Guilford College and the Uni versity of North Carolina and in 1979 was elected to North Carolinas House of Representatives where he says he got the political bug. In 1984 he was elect ed to the U.S. House of Representatives, two years after retiring as a captain in the Coast Guard Re serve. It may have started as just a bite but Coble has gone on to serve 15 terms in oce. roughout his tenure, he cham pioned the Coast Guard, most notably as the in augural chairman of the Coast Guard Subcommit tee in 1995. Coble will soon retire af ter this term in Congress. He is the last Coast Guard veteran currently serving inCongress. Coast Guard photo by PO2 Patrick KelleyRep.

Marine Corps Base Quanticoe Great Depression is arguably one of the most devastating and traumat ic catastrophes in American history. At the peak of the de pression between 1932 and 1933 millions of Amer icans were unemployed, famished and struggling to survive. But, an optimistic President Franklin D. Roosevelt helped turn a tragedy into a triumph when he created the Recreational Demonstration Area in 1933. e RDA program sal vaged old land that would be turned in camps to help ease anguish caused by the Great Depression. e camps provided an escape from everyday life for under-privileged, lowincome youth, mothers and toddlers. ey were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and helped reduce unemployment by putting people to work. During this time more than 2,000 people worked along the Chopawamsic and Quantico creeks and built the Chopawam sic RDA, known today as Prince William Forest Park. Using the Chopawamsic RDA as a replica, Roo sevelts RDA program helped open 46 RDA projects across the nation. e original intent was to build this cabin camp for underprivileged youth in the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore area. e children would come here eat three square meals a day, see a doctor twice a day, play and do crafts said Stephanie Pooler, park ranger and volun teer coordinator for Prince William Forest Park. When they were here, they could mingle with other kids and not worry about where their next meal would come or where they would take a bath, Pooler continued. Here they learned cleanliness and hygiene and how to take care of themselves. Today those same cabin camps remain intact, and are used by visitors who camp in the forest year round. Prince William Forest Park spans 15,000 acres and oers visitors 37 miles of hiking trails, 21 miles of biking trails, various running trails, four camp grounds and ve cabin camps that were built as part of Roosevelts RDA program. e cabin camps can lodge anywhere from 60 to 200 people, depending on the campsite. e visitor center is a great place to start. We have maps here to help guide you, Pooler said. But, for those who are intermediate to advanced hikers, we can set up hikes from three miles all the way up to 18 miles, without covering the area twice. e visitor center also provides information on the history of the park, ex hibits of various types of wildlife found in the park and more. Prince William Forest Park welcomes more than 250,000 visitors each year. e park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. Active duty personnel and their family members can obtain a free annual pass to any national park and or federal recreational land in the United States that charges an entry fee when a military identica tion card is presented. For those who do not have a military identi cation card, the cost is $5 per single passenger vehicle that has less than 14 passengers, $3 per person who walks in or is riding a bike or motorcycle and $20 for annual pass. For information on the history of Prince William Park visit, By Cheryl Pellerin American Forces Press ServiceIn the cyber domain of 2025, the ability of military formations to operate of fensively and defensively will be a core mission set, and commanders will maneuver the capability much as they maneuver ground forces today, the commander of U.S. Cyber Command said recently. Cybercom Commander Navy Adm. Michael S. Rogers, who also is director of the National Security Agency, was the keynote speaker at a June 12 meet ing here at a cyber seminar hosted by the Association of the U.S. Armys Institute of Land Warfare. e theme was Army Networks and Cybersecurity in 2025. In the world of 2025, I believe the ability of Army formations to operate within the cyber domain, oensively and defensively, will be a core mis sion set for the U.S. Army and its operational forces, Rogers told the audience. e Cybercom commander said that by 2025 the military services will have ingrained into their culture the reality that networks and cyber are a commanders business. e admiral, who most recently served as commander of the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and the U.S. 10th Fleet, said this has been a major cultural challenge in the Navy. In the year 2025, I believe Army commanders will maneuver oensive and defensive capability much today as they maneuver ground forces, Rogers said, adding that command and control, key terrain, com manders intent, synchronization with the broader commanders intent, and a broader commanders operational concept of operations will be corner stones of Army cyber operations by then. In 2025, he said, the ability to integrate cyber into a broader operational concept is going to be key. Treating cyber as some thing so specialized, so unique something that resides outside the broad er operational framework I think that is a very awed concept. Between now and 2025, Rogers said, a primary challenge will be integrat ing cyber and its defensive and oensive capabilities into a broader operational construct that enables commanders to apply an other broader set of tools in achieving their opera tional missions. When he thinks about how Cybercom and the services will get to 2025, Rogers said, he tries to keep three points in mind. e rst, he said, is that cyber is operations. Com manders must own the cyber mission set, the admi ral said, integrating it into the operational vision and becoming knowledgeable about the broad capabili ties of a unit, formation or organization and its potential vulnerabilities. I think its going to be foundational to the warf ighting construct of the future, Rogers said, add ing that the challenge is as much cultural as techni cal. To make this work, in the end, its about our ability to synchronize the capabilities of a team, he added, from our juniormost individuals to our senior-most individuals, from capabilities resident within [the services] and as a department, to the [external] partnerships were going to have to form. e second point Rog ers said he keeps in mind is that requirements of the future include a joint net work backbone for all of the Defense Department. I never understood why Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and, arguably, our Coast Guard teammates were spending a lot of time and money [to independently] create, maintain, build and operate a global communications backbone, Rogers said. Instead, he added, make the ser vices responsible for the last tactical mile of [a DOD-wide backbone that spans the globe], down to mobile and tactical users, whether theyre in a gar rison scenario or whether theyre out maneuvering in the eld, on an aircraft, on a ship or in a squad ron. e third point, Rogers said, is that people and partnerships are key. Dont ever forget that, in the end, [operationalizing cyberspace by 2025] is all about people and partnerships, the admiral said. Its about our ability to create a workforce that understands the vision, has the tools and capabilities they need to execute this vision, and is integrat ed into the broader eort. e partnership piece is a key area, he added, because we, the Depart ment of Defense, are not the cutting edge when it comes to networks, [communications] or information technology. We are a user of technology that is largely gen erated by individuals and organizations that reside outside the DOD. I dont see that trend changing between now and 2025, he added. As Cybercom commander and operational commander for the cy berspace mission set, the admiral said, focusing on ve Cyber Command pri orities will help military commanders build the joint force for 2025. e priorities are: Building a trained and ready operational cyber force; Building a joint defensible network whose ar chitecture has core design characteristics of defen sibility, redundancy and resilience; Creating shared situational awareness in cyberspace; Creating command and control and operational concepts for use in cyberspace; and Being mindful of policy and administrative changes needed to oper ate in cyberspace. Addressing the depart ments ability to compete on the open market for exceptional cyber talent, Rogers said, cyber is no dierent from any other DOD mission in terms of going after talented indi viduals. If the view is that pay is the primary criteria to get people with cyber ex pertise to join the depart ment, I dont think thats going to work for us, he added. Well compete because of what makes us dierent. We will appeal to men and women who have an ethos of service [and] who believe in the idea of being part of some thing bigger than them selves. Were going to compete for the same people because, quite frankly, were going to give them the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a way that you cant legally do on the outside, he added, prompting chuckles from the audience. I think were going to do well, the admiral said. [Over the past 10 years], we have exceeded my wildest expectations in terms of our abilities to recruit and retain a highend cyber workforce, be cause weve been able to focus on why they want to be with us as opposed to why they dont want to be with us.Navy photo by MC2 Joshua J.
