Question: Why doesn’t the Point Mugu Surf
Contest include bodyboarding this year? My fam-
ily loves bodyboarding, and were looking forward
to it again this year.
Answer: The Surf Contest is a huge event for
us. This year, the fifth for the contest, saw the
Open Division sell out in record time. As more
and more competitors and spectators learn about
the chance to surf Point Mugu, the contest contin-
ues to grow and change to meet the needs of the
event and security on base.
The discussion about refining and improving
the event continues throughout the year, and over
time different divisions have been cut to reflect
those discussions. We cut the longboard division,
for example, when we found that those boards
don’t survive the surf here at Point Mugu very
well. Competitors were breaking their boards,
which isn’t safe.
We also made a decision to not include paddle
boarding or kite surfing, not as a judgment about
those disciplines, but for other, measurable
reasons. Many of these decisions are made based
on judges’ requests, competitors’ feedback and
military interest in the categories — this is, after
all, a military event.
One big consideration for any contest is
consistency and accuracy in judging. Our judges
in years past have asked for more time between
heats to review and score the competitors, and
we decided the best way to give them that time is
to restrict the number of divisions offered. Body-
boarding suffered from a lack of participation and
was cut to allow the other divisions the time they
needed.
I understand your love of the discipline, and
I hope we still see you and your family cheering
at the contest again this year, even though body-
boarding will not be a featured event.
What happened to bodyboarding at the 2012 Point Mugu Surf Contest? w

Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) is
participating in the annual Feds Feed Fam-
ilies food drive, which runs through the end
of August. So far, 227 pounds of food have
been collected.
Scattered across NBVC Port Hueneme
andNBVCPoint Muguare 20bright yellow
bins, waiting for generous people to drop in
some non-perishable food or hygiene
items.
Bins are located at the Navy Exchanges
and the commissary, the chapels and the
dental and medical clinics. They’re also at
the Port Hueneme Galley, Fleet and Fam-
ily Support Center and at various com-
mands, including the 31st Seabee Readiness
Group.
All food collected will go to the Ventura
County Food Share program.
Feds FeedFamilies is a direct response to
the “United We Serve Act”signed by Pres-
ident Obama inApril 2009, calling uponall
Americans tocontribute tothe nation’s eco-
nomic recovery by serving in their commu-
nities.
Last year, the base collected3,830 pounds
at 19locations. Inall, the federal government
collected 5.7 million pounds of donated
food, 2 millionpounds of that coming from
the Department of Defense alone.
This year, the Department of Defense has
a goal of 1.5 millionpounds. Navywide, the
goal is 396,000 pounds.
Any non-perishable food in cans and
boxes is accepted; anything packaged in
glass is not. Popular items include peanut
butter; canned goods such as fruit, beans,
vegetables, tuna and soup, rice and other
grains; dry beans; crackers, pretzels, gra-
nola bars, trail mix, dried fruit and other
snacks; and cereal.
Hygiene items are alsoaccepted, including
feminine products and diapers.
For more information, contact Religious
Ministries, which is coordinating the base
effort, at 982-4358.

all that could be heard after the ribbon-
cutting was, “Oh, look at that!”
In a very good way.
Lincoln Military Housing opened the
6,500-square-foot center Wednesday, July
25.
“Residents have been patiently waiting,
as we’ve had about a six-month delay,”
said Nancy Meissner, regional property
manager for Lincoln. “But we’re open
now, and we’re excited to see everyone.”
The day began with a noon luncheon
for the developers, designers and base per-
sonnel instrumental in getting the com-
munity center built. About two hours
later, it opened for residents, and given
that it was a warm, sunny day, it didn’t
take long for youngsters to jump into the
pools.
About 200 residents visited that first
day.
“This is a great environment,” said

The long-awaited community center for Lincoln Military Housing residents at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme, threw open its doors Wednesday, July 25 — a bright, sunny
day that had people hopping into the pool as soon as the 2 p.m. grand opening began.
Lincoln Military Housing at all three
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) de-
velopments —Port Hueneme, Point Mugu
and Camarillo Heights —received “A-List
Awards” based on resident satisfaction
surveys distributed in April.
Lincoln manages 1,200 housing units
for Naval Base Ventura County and more
than 30,000 units nationally for the Navy
and Marine Corps.
Lincoln officials said participation rate
in the survey, which was developed by
CEL&Associates LLC, was high —even
higher than last year.
“Lincoln’s commitment to resident sat-
isfaction was key to all sites achieving ‘A
List’ ratings in resident satisfaction,” said
Nancy Meissner, the Lincoln regional
property manager who oversees the NBVC
properties. “Quality of life issues and site
improvements are forefront to Lincoln to
help ensure Ventura residents’ overall sat-
isfaction and help create a positive living
environment for Lincoln families.”

For the last eight months, the “SunKings”
of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squad-
ron (VAW) 116 have been deployed as part
of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2 aboard the
USS AbrahamLincoln (CVN72), the flag-
ship for Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 9.
Since their departure in December 2011,
the Sun Kings have logged more than 2,000
flight hours in approximately 550 aircraft
sorties; 1,200 of those hours were flown in
direct support of OperationEnduring Free-
dom.
VAW-116’s maintenance department ex-
ecuted40,000 man-hours, completing near-
ly11,000aircraft maintenance actions, keep-
ing the squadron’s planes inthe air andtheir
pilots safe. For their hard work and dedica-
tion, the crew was recognized on multiple
levels.
They earned the Golden Wrench Award
for the deployment’s first of four line periods,
honoring the department for overall perfor-
mance and delivery of mission-ready air-
craft.
They also took the fourth quarter Safety
‘S’ Award, in which the Commander, Air-
borne Command and Control Logistics
Wing recognizedVAW-116 for safety efforts
in their adherence to policies and proce-
dures.
“The dedication to exceptional perfor-
mance exhibited by our squadron’s person-
nel has drawnpositive attentionfromabove,”
said Lt. Cmdr. Joseph Brogren, squadron
safety officer,”but more importantly, “it has
fostered a culture of safety that allows our
Sailors to have confidence they will return
home to their loved ones.”
VAW-116 was presented with the CNAF
RetentionExcellence Award, Blue ‘M’ Excel-
lenceAward, andtheSurgeonGeneral’s Blue
‘H’ Gold Star Health Promotion and Well-
ness Award while embarked with CSG-9.
“The Sun Kings have routinely demon-
strated an outstanding ability to persevere
in the face of numerous hardships encoun-
tered this deployment,” said Cmdr. Paul
Dale, commanding officer, VAW-116. “Our
members have continued to personally and
professionally better themselves, and I have
beenthoroughlyimpressedwiththe achieve-
ments of every individual in the com-
mand.”

The sights and sounds of “back to
school” time are everywhere. Soon, stu-
dents will be spotted with their crisp new
clothes and clean backpacks hesitantly
walking toward the yellow school bus,
while others balance their new lunch box
as they ride their bikes with friends.
This is a time for all drivers, parents or
not, to be proactive to keep kids safe as
they head back to school. Parents should
also take the time to talk to their children
about safety.
Here are some tips fromSafe Kids USA,
the Department of Transportation and
American Academy of Pediatrics.
For all drivers
• When backing out of a driveway or
leaving a garage, watch out for children
walking or bicycling to school.
• When driving in neighborhoods with
school zones, watch out for young people
who may be thinking about getting school,
but may not be thinking of getting there
safely.
• Be alert. Children arriving late for the
bus or school may dart into the street
without looking for traffic.
• Learn the “flashing light signal sys-
tem” that school bus drivers use to alert
motorists of pending actions. Yellowflash-
ing lights indicate that the bus is preparing
to stop to load or unload children. Motor-
ists should slowdown and prepare to stop
their vehicles. Red flashing lights and ex-
tended stop arms indicate that the bus has
stopped and that children are getting on
or off. Motorists must stop their cars and
wait until the red light stops flashing, the
extended stop sign is withdrawn, and the
bus begins moving before they can start
driving again.
• Yellowcrosswalk lines may be painted
at school crossings. If a pedestrian is at
any point in the yellowcrosswalk, drivers
may not pass through the crosswalk, even
when it appears to be safe.
For students who take the bus
• Wait for the bus to stop before ap-
proaching it from the curb.
• Do not move around on the bus.
• Check to see that no other traffic is
coming before crossing the street.
• Make sure to always remain in clear
view of the bus driver.
• Always board and exit the bus at loca-
tions that provide safe access to the bus
or to the school building.
For bicycle riders
• Always wear a bicycle helmet, no mat-
ter how short or long the ride.
• Ride on the right, in the same direction
as auto traffic.
• Use appropriate hand signals.
• Respect traffic lights and stop signs.
• Know the rules of the road. You can
find themat www.aap.org/family/bicycle.
htm
For parents whose kids walk to school
• Make sure your child’s walk to school is
a safe route withwell-trained, adult crossing
guards at every intersection.
• Be realistic about your child’s pedestrian
skills. Because small children are impulsive
and less cautious around traffic, carefully
consider whether your childis ready towalk
to school without adult supervision.
• In neighborhoods with higher levels of
traffic, consider starting a “walking school
bus,”inwhichanadult accompanies agroup
of neighborhood children walking to
school.
• Newto Naval Base Ventura County? If
you live at Port Hueneme and your student
attends Richard Bard, Hueneme Elemen-
tary or Hueneme Christian, there is a pe-
destriangate at Goodspeedthat allows easy
access to Pleasant Valley Road. It is open
during school commute hours. This allows
students to avoid walking along busy Ven-
tura Road.

If you read my articles long enough,
you quickly find out that I am a big fan
of the baseball. More specifically: I love
my hometown San Francisco Giants!
One of the things I still say to Sailors
when I greet them is, “How is your favor-
ite sports team doing?” Most of the time
they respond back on a game they watched
over the weekend or share their excitement
over the upcoming new sports season.
Generally speaking, most Americans I
have met love to root for and follow their
favorite home team.
What is fun about every opening day
for baseball is that each team’s win and
loss record — including that of last year’s
World Series champions — is the same.
Traveling around the country, I always
enjoy listening to local sports radio talk
shows. It doesn’t matter if their home team
is the Padres, Cubs, Dodgers or even the
Giants, there is a profound sense of opti-
mism among the local fans about the up-
coming season.
A really nice perk about taking in a
baseball game with your family is that you
do not have to refinance your mortgage
to make it happen.
And unlike a football season, where
there are far fewer games, you have a
greater chance of taking in a baseball
game if you miss the one you’ve planned
to see. Because there are over 160 games
per season, you have an easy sense that
you can take in another game this month
or the next. On the other hand, speaking
as a lifelong football fan also, I can also
see how the brevity of the season makes
each football game more special.
As I amtyping away at this article, I am
looking at a nice picture of my nieces and
me together at AT&T Park in San Fran-
cisco, standing in front of the 2011 San
Francisco Giants World Series Trophy. If
you have never taken your son, daughter,
niece or nephew to a ballgame, it will be
one of the nicest treats you will ever do
for each other.
We have some great baseball teams a
couple of hours south of us. Morale, Wel-
fare and Recreation has some great deals
every season that takes care of both trans-
portation and tickets.
Bob Costas, the famous sports announc-
er who’s now busy with the Olympic
Games in London, was asked in an inter-
view about his fondest memories of his
dad. He said it was when his father took
him to a New York Yankees ballgame in
the 1950s when he was a little boy. As he
was blinking back his tears, he said he will
never forget sitting on top of his dad’s
shoulder as they strolled together through
the dark tunnel and seeing the bright ma-
jestic green ballpark beneath them for his
first time.
Here is a nice bucket list item for 2012:
Take a child to his or her first live sporting
event.
God bless!
Taking child to baseball game brings joy to Mudville

A memorial service will be held at 2
p.m. Aug. 15 at the Seabee Museum for
Jude Gallagher, who recently passed
away.
Gallagher retired in February after 37
years of federal service. She was with the
Naval Facilities Expeditionary Logistics
Center, and, in 2005, she received both
the Department of Navy Outstanding
Employee with Disabilities Award and
the Joyce W. Stewart Award for her efforts
to bring equality and diversity to the
base.
A survivor of both cancer and child-
hood polio, Gallagher had served as a
division director, manager and employee
and was a mentor and friend to many.
“Jude always put the needs of others
above her own,” said Lisa Zimmerman
of the Naval Facilities Information Tech-
nology Center, who became a close friend
of Gallagher’s when they worked togeth-
er with the Federal Women’s Program
(FWP). “She was honored for her con-
tributions to the command in four key
areas: diversity, model equal employment
opportunity, fairness and equal treat-
ment, and image. Jude was a perfect role
model of these attributes and emulated
them daily.”
Through her work with FWP, Galla-
gher helped collect items for Ventura
County’s homeless women and children
and victims of domestic violence, and she
was an annual supporter of the Com-
bined Federal Campaign (CFC).
Gallagher received a Secretary of De-
fense award for her outstanding contribu-
tion to national security, presented during
the 25th Annual DoD Disability Awards
Ceremony.

The first wave of Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 3 returned
from a six-month deployment to Europe
and Africa Saturday, Aug. 4.
Just minutes after the 3 p.m. sched-
uled arrival, the plane touched down
at Naval Base Ventura County, Point
Mugu, as families cheered and waved
flags and homemade signs welcoming
their Seabees home.
About 160 of the 550 Seabees that
make up the battalion returned Satur-
day. The rest of the battalion will come
home later this month.
First off the plane, following tradi-
tion, were the new fathers in the bat-
talion. There were nearly a dozen this
time.
“I’m excited!” said Christie Andreski
as she waited for Equipment Operator
Constructionman Jeff Andreski to get
off the plane so he could see 2-month-
old Conner. “But I’m more excited for
him.”
Him meaning the baby, or him mean-
ing Dad?
“Both!” she said.
Lisa Barbuto was also eagerly await-
ing the arrival of her husband, Steel-
worker 2nd Class Bernard Barbuto.
Daughter Mia, 4 months old, joined her
2-year-old sister, Madison, at the flight-
line.
“We have iPhones so he can see us
every two weeks or so,” Lisa said.
“Technology these days!”
But, she added, it’s not the same as
seeing each other in person.
For that, she had to wait about 3
more minutes.
NMCB 3 was deployed to more than
eight countries throughout Europe and
Africa. The main deployment site was
Rota, Spain.
In the last six months, NMCB 3 has
provided construction and general en-
gineering, humanitarian and civic as-
sistance. Missions included building
school houses and digging water wells
to help countries and people in need.
NMCB 3 returning from 6 months in Africa, Europe
Diana Pauling and her 12-year-old daughter,
Natalie, eagerly await the arrival of EOC Phil
Pauling, who is retiring in January after 20
years in the Navy. Diana couldn’t remember
if she and her husband had gone through
six or seven deployments together. “It’s just
been one after another,” she said as she
wiped away tears. “I didn’t realize I’d get this
emotional.”

six-month deployment Saturday, Aug. 4.
First wave of 160 comes home Aug. 4; rest of the
battalion is due in later this month
NMCB 3’s focus on a culture of fitness
resulted in a combined weight loss of
more than 1,000 pounds during the
six-month deployment. See story in the
Aug. 23 edition of The Lighthouse.

NAVFAC ESC
Navy and Army engineers recently used
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Port
Hueneme as the testing site for construc-
tion equipment that incorporates new
hydraulic technologies to improve energy
efficiencies and reduce operating costs.
The most recent phase of testing, con-
ducted July 9-13, consisted of baseline
testing of two hydraulic excavators to es-
tablish fuel consumption performance
parameters. Their performance will then
be compared with that of an excavator
fitted with an innovative hybrid hydraulic
energy recovery system that will be tested
next year.
In addition, a backhoe loader fitted with
an experimental hydraulic control system
was tested for fuel consumption compar-
isons recorded with earlier tests.
The Army’s Tank Automotive Research,
Development and Engineering Center
(TARDEC) conducted the tests in col-
laboration with the Naval Facilities Engi-
neering Service Center (NAVFAC ESC),
the 1st Naval Construction Division
(1NCD), the 31st Seabee Readiness Group
(31st SRG) and its construction battalions
and private industry.
NBVC Port Hueneme was chosen be-
cause of its consistent climate favorable
to the testing.
The Navywants tofindout howemerging
technologies might be used to reduce fuel
consumptionof expeditionary construction
equipment used by Seabees during deploy-
ment. Such fuel savings will support the
Secretary of the Navy’s goal for tactical en-
ergy fuel reduction by 15 percent for 2020.
The 31st SRG and its construction bat-
talions contributed experienced equipment
operators to support the tests, which also
enabled themto gain knowledge and expe-
rience with the new hybrid hydraulic tech-
nology.
The Phase I testing involving the hydrau-
lically drivenbackhoe was successfully con-
ducted in March 2011. Baseline data was
recordedtoevaluate the modifiedhydraulic
system that will reduce fuel consumption
and overall operating costs.
Phase II testing of the backhoe involves
the new hydraulic system, which includes
digital valves and hydraulic accumulators
so that less hydraulic power is required to
do the same work. Power requirements will
be measuredandcomparedtoreadings from
the Phase I baseline testing to determine
overall hydraulic power reduction, fuel con-
sumption reduction and cost savings.
Inadditiontothe Phase II testing, aPhase
I baseline test of both Navy and Army hy-
draulic excavators was performedsimultane-
ously to determine baseline performance
and fuel efficiency and to identify further
improvements for hybridexcavator technol-
ogy. Engine speed, fuel flow rate and tem-
perature were the specific parameters mea-
sured.
Planned testing of a Phase II hybrid hy-
draulic excavator will be conducted early
next year onanewlydevelopedhybridswing
drive system. It is expected to significantly
reduce hydraulic losses and recover energy
from the boom and swing drive, thus ulti-
mately reusing captured energy to enable
higher engine efficiency, improve fuel effi-
ciency and provide cost savings during a
typical duty cycle. Performance require-
ments will be measured and compared to
the Phase I baseline to determine overall
hydraulic peak power reduction, fuel con-
sumption reduction and predicted cost sav-
ings.
The outcome of Phase II testing will de-
termine the suitability of this concept and
technology for inclusion in the Naval Con-
struction Force Civil Engineer Support
Equipment table of allowance for the Sea-
bees.

NMCB 5
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalions (NMCB) 5 and 4
finished collecting donations in support
of the Soles for Souls (S4S) program July
20.
According to the official S4S website,
the program started as a project to collect
shoes after the Asian tsunami disaster in
December 2004 and then for Hurricane
Katrina victims in August 2005. Today,
its mission is to collect new and like-new
shoes to give to victims of abject suffering
and to collect used shoes to support mi-
cro business efforts to eradicate pover-
ty.
“They take donations for shoes and
distribute them globally to help people
in devastated areas. Right now they are
focusing on the Colorado fires,”said Con-
struction Mechanic 2nd Class Joshua
Norrick, a member of NMCB 5’s Team
One.
TeamOne is a committee within NMCB
5 whose members volunteer off-duty time
to support activities that contribute pos-
itively within the community.
“This is the second year we’ve done it,
and last year we almost got 400 pairs of
shoes donated,” Norrick said. “This year
we decided to teamup with NMCB4 and
see what we could do as a group.”
NMCB 5 is active in volunteering, and
many of the command committees look
for opportunities such as this to help the
community whenever possible.
NMCB 5 is preparing for a scheduled
deployment to Pacific Command early
next year.

NMCB 5
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 5 completed
Command Post Exercise (CPX) 3 at Naval
Base Ventura County July 20.
“This is the last of four exercises toprepare
[the battalion] for a field training exercise
(FTX). Each exercise increased in complex-
ity, and this is a full-scale operation,” said
Ensign Matthew Harvie, CPX 3 officer in
charge.
CPX 3 is designed to increase NMCB 5’s
battalion readiness in the field. Seabees
trainedandreactedtocomplexscenarios that
included entry control point (ECP) drills,
dealingwithenemythreats andlocal civilian
interaction.
“I get to pass down my knowledge and
experience to everybody that’s out here. We
have a lot of newpersonnel in the battalion
andpeople taking onnewroles,”saidBuild-
er 1st Class Anthony Foster of the NMCB
Training Department.
Foster said he enjoys training the Seabees
in NMCB 5 and getting out in the field en-
vironment.
The battalion worked throughout the
three-day exercise andintothe nights tocre-
ate forward operating bases (FOBs) and es-
tablish and transmit successful communica-
tions within the camp.
“Whenwe get out inthe field, it’s gotime,”
Harvie said. “There’s noroomfor error once
it’s the real deal. You want to get in as much
practice as you can, learn where your weak-
nesses are and where you need to improve.”
NMCB5 will depart for FTXthis month
in preparation for a scheduled deployment
early next year.

More than750 people, mostly active duty
Sailors and Airmen, queued up Saturday,
July 28, for a chance to meet —and get au-
tographs from—the Dallas Cowboys foot-
ball team.
The Cowboys’ trainingcampis inOxnard,
just afewmiles fromthe gates of Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) Point Mugu. The
Cowboys paid to land at Point Mugu’s air-
field, saving themselves the trip from Los
Angeles International Airport —andgiving
them a chance to meet with the nation’s
armed forces.
“I’ve beentoAfghanistanandI have seen
what it’s like for themthere,”saidJasonWit-
ten, Cowboys tight end. “It’s a thrill to be
able to do this.”
Uponarrival, the Dallas Cowboys Cheer-
leaders exitedthe plane first, formingagant-
let of shaking blue and silver-white pom-
poms for the coaching staff and players.
Waiting onthe tarmac togreet the teamwas
Capt. LarryVasquez, NBVC’s commanding
officer, andother military members, includ-
ing several officers and two Sailors who re-
cently returned from deployments over-
seas.
CoachJasonGarrett brieflyaddressedthe
crowdfillingHangar 34at Point Mugu, then
the teamandcheerleaders enteredtoa roar-
ing cheer.
Rookies sat alongside sought-after star
players, grinningandsigningautographs for
the first time. WittenandquarterbackTony
Romo signed photos, jerseys and footballs
for a line of military men and women that
snakedthroughthe hangar andout intothe
open air.
“The players were sonice anddidn’t act all
stuck-up,”saidTexas nativeAviationSupport
Equipment Technician 3rd Class Laquisha
Roy, of Fleet Readiness Center Southwest,
Detachment Point Mugu. “I likedthat it was
set up for military and their families.”
Roy and her husband Andrew brought
their 8-month-olddaughter Alonaalongfor
the family-friendly event.
Other native Texans tookadvantage of the
opportunity to meet someone from home
during the autograph signing.
Culinary Specialist 2nd Class Joe Rubali-
cado, assigned to NBVC, brought multiple
jerseys andahelmet for the teamtosign, but
got an added surprise when he was inter-
viewed by Dallas-Fort Worth Fox 4 sports-
caster Michael Doocy.
“I’ve been watching you on TV for years
backhome,”RubalicadotoldDoocy, smiling
and juggling his jerseys so he could shake
hands with the reporter.

in 2010. The centers, all of which have
energy-efficient LEED Certification, are
equipped with two heated pools, resident
fitness centers, game rooms, kitchens and
gathering areas for larger events.
Lincoln’s Community Services Programs
include spring expos and Easter egg hunts,
preschool fun time and Spouse Club
events.
“These events help build a community
spirit and help bring the NBVCcommuni-
ties together,”Meissner said. “Lincoln will
continue to expand the community ser-
vices we offer by tailoring the events and
activities to each installation’s individual
needs. In this way, we maximize resident
participation and help build community
involvement and neighborhood pride.”
Lincoln, she said, “is committed to en-
suring the highest quality of life for resi-
dents through continued community sup-
port programs, expanded community
improvement projects and an attitude that
is driven by our belief that ‘Every Mission
Starts at Home.’”

“We used to have to drive all over,” he
said. “Now everything’s here.”
Nickee Richardson, whose husband
Dylan is a utilitiesman third class with
NMCB 5, said she’ll be bringing her 2-
year-old, Avah, to the pool a lot this sum-
mer.
“Until we move to Hawaii in Septem-
ber,” she added.
“We live right down the street, so it’s
nice to have this. It’s awesome.”
Annie Nestor was astonished by the
workout room, which is filled with brand-
new ellipticals and other exercise equip-
ment.
“I really like it,”said Nestor, whose hus-
band is Chief Builder Mark Nestor of
NMCB 5. “I think I’ll go here instead of
the Bee-Fit.”
The Bee-Fit Health and Wellness Cen-
ter has gotten busy with the Warfield Gym
closed for renovation, she said. The chil-
dren’s play area there is now smaller than
it was, and the workout area in the com-
munity center has a children’s playroom
next to it that’s larger than the one at the
Bee-Fit.
“This is exciting,” she said. “I like it,
and I’ll definitely use it.”
The community center is open only to
residents of Lincoln Military Housing. All
the housing at NBVC Port Hueneme is
run by Lincoln.
The community center is identical to the
ones at NBVCPoint Mugu, which opened
April 2, 2011, and at Catalina Heights,
which opened in the summer of 2010.
They all have the same hours: 8:30 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

NMCB 40
Seabees from U.S. Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 40 returned
last month froma nine-month deployment
to the U.S. Pacific Command (USPA-
COM) area of responsibility. This is the
final deployment for NMCB 40; the bat-
talion is scheduled to disestablish next
month.
USPACOM is an arduous and geo-
graphically dispersed area of responsibil-
ity with unique operational, logistical and
communication challenges. NMCB40 was
stretched across the Pacific theater from
its main body site in Okinawa, Japan,
while supporting 11 detachment sites and
nine exercise locations: South Korea,
Guam, Diego Garcia, Cambodia, Thai-
land, Malaysia, Indonesia, East Timor,
Philippines, Palau and Vietnam.
NMCB 40 executed numerous Theater
Security Cooperation (TSC) missions and
exercises that focused on strengthening
military-to-military relationships and en-
hanced the humanitarian assistance and
disaster recovery capabilities of the host
nations.
“Often, the Seabees of NMCB 40 were
the only U.S. military presence in these
developing nations,” said Lt. Cmdr. Ben
Miller, executive officer of NMCB 40.
“The interaction and host nation support
provided by the ‘Bees from Fighting 40
further enhanced the positive reputation
of the United States while continuing to
add to the proud legacy of the Seabees in
the Pacific Command.”
“Fighting 40” also executed $8 million
in construction readiness projects in sup-
port of installation commanders and
other military commands. The scope of
these projects ranged from remote gravel
roads, asphalt projects and construction
of pre-engineered buildings to the instal-
lation of technologically complex solar
power and overhead concrete projects.
In a message to NMCB 40, the 30th
Naval Construction Regiment said,
“NMCB 40 has raised the bar and great-
ly enhanced the Seabee legacy in the ex-
ecution of high quality, technically chal-
lenging construction.”
The 2011-2012 USPACOMdeployment
is the final deployment for NMCB40. The
battalion is scheduled to disestablish on
Sept. 12 as a result of U.S. fiscal con-
straints and the post-Afghanistan and
Iraqi war drawdown. However, this is not
the first time NMCB40 has disestablished.
During the post-World War II drawdown,
NMCB40 was disestablished in Okinawa,
Japan, only to be reactivated 21 years
later in 1966 when the nation needed ad-
ditional construction support for the Viet-
nam War.
On July 13, NMCB 40 performed its
last turnover at Camp Shields, Okinawa,
Japan.
Cmdr. Tim DeWitt, commanding of-
ficer of NMCB 40, said, “As we turn over
Camp Shields this morning, our battalion
colors will come down for the final time
overseas. It’s a proud legacy 40 has left in
the Pacific.”
NMCB 40 is the Naval Construction
Force’s 2011 Pacific Fleet Battle “E” and
Peltier Award-winning Seabee battalion.
It deployed throughout the U.S. Pacific
Command last November.

OKINAWA, Japan – Seabees assigned
to U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Bat-
talion (NMCB) 40 completed the Fleet
Industrial Supply Center (FISC) ware-
house at Commander, Fleet Activities,
Okinawa, White Beach, at a cost of
$675,000.
The project, completed June 28, was in
support of U.S. Seventh Fleet operations
throughout the U.S. Pacific Command
area of responsibility. NMCB40 has since
returned to Naval Base Ventura County,
Port Hueneme.
The 207-square-meter storage facility
consists of a general storage area, a cli-
mate controlled freezer and a second deck
office space. It is the second of three fa-
cilities being built by the Seabees.
“There was a lot of troubleshooting of
the electrical system, which resulted in a
lot of good training for the younger
troops,” said the project supervisor, Con-
struction Electrician 1st Class Scott Jones.
“It is a great feeling to see a young crew
troubleshoot the electrical system for an
entire building.”
NMCB 40 turned over its mission to
NMCB 74, which will use the brand new
warehouse as an example when it begins
constructing the third and final warehouse
for FISC at White Beach, right beside
NMCB 40’s completed facility.

TALAUD, Indonesia — Seabees as-
signed to U.S. Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 40 played a large role
in this year’s Pacific Partnership, a yearly
humanitarian exercise designed to help
countries prepare for natural disasters and
build the bonds required to accomplish
the mission.
The Seabees worked on the island of
Talaud, near the Philippine Islands. They
constructed two new block buildings de-
signed as an emergency room (ER) and a
pharmacy. They also rehabilitated the di-
lapidated facilities that 37 staff members
use to administer medical support to thou-
sands of local residents.
“The prior facilities that were being used
as the ER just weren’t suitable for emer-
gencies,”said Dr. Yanny Sasube, the head
doctor of the Puskesmas clinic, “espe-
cially since most cases were vehicle-re-
lated and usually patients arrive in twos
and threes, needing lots of room to prop-
erly care for them.”
NMCB 40, the Australian Defense
Force and the Indonesian Army worked
hand-in-hand to install 40 new light fix-
tures, replace 6,000 square feet of drywall,
replace 27 doors with hardware, replace
the plumbing systemto deliver fresh water
and fix four toilets.
“It is really exciting for us to be using
our skills to help people who are not able
to do it themselves,”said Engineering Aide
3rd Class Kyle Jeffreys. “I would like to
keep doing these types of missions.”
Also in need of much repair was the
local elementary School in Beo. The stu-
dents had no running water except for a
30-foot well and a bucket on a rope. Util-
itiesman 2nd Class Michael Stahl directed
a crew of six to construct a 15-foot steel
tower to support a 250-gallon water tank
and install a new water pump with 300
linear feet of PVC pipe. By the time the
project was complete, the school had run-
ning water for two toilets, four sinks and
two exterior water sources. The crew also
installed a French drain below the sinks
to help disperse the used water to prevent
a future health risk.
After completing the 45-day mission,
the Seabees returned to Okinawa, Japan,
to prepare for their trip home to Port Hue-
neme. They returned to the United States
last month.

AT3 George Carbonell of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 117 packs for a
two-month exercise in the Pacific near Hawaii. The squadron is due back this month.
By Lt. Achala Edirisinghe
VAW-117
Cruise boxes crowded the hangar floor
recently as members of Carrier Airborne
Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 117
“Wallbangers” completed their pack-out
for a two-month Tailored Ships Training
Availability (TSTA)/ Pacific Rim (RIM-
PAC) exercise in the Pacific near Ha-
waii.
TSTA/RIMPAC is a dual exercise un-
dertaken by the Nimitz Strike Group, of
which VAW-117 is a member, to improve
both international relations and daily fleet
operations.
“[TSTA] is a measure of how we per-
form on an aircraft carrier,” said Cmdr.
Fred Goldhammer, VAW-117’s command-
ing officer. “We’re going out to practice
executing a flight schedule at sea and
smoothing out any possible issues that
may arise.”
The Wallbangers join other members
of Carrier Air Wing 11 and the staff of
the USS Nimitz (CVN 68) in testing the
combined force’s ability to execute various
missions, including the sinking of a de-
commissioned ship.
This combined effort rolls into RIM-
PAC, a series of maritime exercises de-
signed to foster relationships among sev-
eral nations engaged in operations
affecting the Pacific. This year, 44 naval
vessels, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000
personnel from 22 nations are participat-
ing.
For many Wallbangers, TSTA/RIMPAC
will offer a chance to brush up on skills
and create a good shipboard routine. For
others, this will be a chance to learn about
themselves and their shipmates.
“Things are going to be a bit slower for
the first few weeks,”said Aviation Electri-
cian’s Mate 1st Class David Greenwald,
who plans to pair newcomers with more
experienced Sailors to help themcomplete
their flight deck qualifications. Underway
time is often used for training.
“The time you have underway is what
you make of it,” said Aircrew Survival
Equipmentman 2nd Class David Lewis.
“You end up having a lot of time to study
for advancement. Really, these exercises
are mainly about getting better at what
you do on a daily basis.”
VAW-117 will return home later this
month, having qualified 145 Sailors and
put in 800 hours of combined airtime in
the squadron’s four planes during the
TSTA/RIMPAC exercise.

Runners take off Thursday, Aug. 2, at the start of the Heat of the Summer 5K at Naval
Base Ventura County, Point Mugu
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
The Heat of Summer 5K run, held
Thursday, Aug. 2, at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Point Mugu’s Picnic Pa-
vilion, was the first Morale, Welfare and
Recreation lunchtime run for Paul Ziegler,
an engineer with Naval Air Warfare Cen-
ter Weapons Division.
While most of the runs draw anywhere
from 30 to 80 runners, Ziegler had the
course pretty much to himself, finishing
with a time of 19 minutes, 25 seconds.
Only 11 runners showed up, and many
were youngsters drawn to a 1K Kids Run
set for the same time but who ended up
running the whole 5K instead. The sec-
ond-place finisher had a time of 26 min-
utes, 9 seconds.
“This seemed like a great opportunity,”
Ziegler said. “It was free and it was over
lunch.”
He said he planned to run in future
events, no matter how many people show
up.
This particular lunchtime run probably
fell victim to a busy summer schedule,
speculated MWR’s Kevin Ludwig. It came
right on the heels of other events coordi-
nated by MWR — autograph-signing by
the Dallas Cowboys and the Battle of
Commands — and right before the ever-
popular Point Mugu Surf Contest.
Still, he said, having kids showup made
it all worthwhile.
“This helps teach them to get exercise
at a young age,” he said. “And exercise is
extremely important nowadays.”
The only child to run the 1K was a 7-
year-old, Emily Kano, the daughter of
Sirina and Philip Kano, who works for
Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Divi-
sion. Joe Cantu of MWR ran with her so
she wouldn’t get lost.
“I’m tired!” said a gasping Emily at the
end of the run.
Ludwig said lunchtime runs are a good
way to get people outside having fun.
“If it’s an organized run, they’re more
apt to come out and run with other people
instead of just doing the same old thing
by running alone,” he said.
MWRputs on about six lunchtime runs
a year. The next one is Oct. 11 at NBVC
Port Hueneme.
5K runners have course to themselves

Warfare Center Weapons Division, finishes
the 5K with a time of 19 minutes, 25
seconds. The second-place winner was 7
minutes behind him.

About 300 people with ties to Guam
greetedNaval BaseVenturaCounty(NBVC)
Port Hueneme, Saturday, July 21, with a
warm“Hafa Adai”and celebrated the 68th
anniversary of the U.S. territory’s liberation
from Japanese occupation.
This is the fourthyear that LiberationDay
has been commemorated at the base. The
event draws people fromas far away as Sac-
ramento, LongBeachandSanDiego, along
withabout 150 people fromVentura Coun-
ty, where many current and retired civil ser-
vice workers are of Guamanian descent.
Capt. LarryVasquez, commandingofficer
of NBVC, was a guest speaker, drawing
laughter and applause as he told stories of
serving with Guamanians who festooned
their living quarters with skillets, rice cook-
ers and colorful flags.
“They brought the warmth and culture
of Guamtoa barracks inIndiana,”he said.
“What that did to boost the morale of the
rest of the unit was incredible.”

cludedapotluckfeaturingtraditional island
dishes: ChickenKelaguenandBeef Kelaguen
—barbecuedmeat cookedwithlemon, on-
ions andgratedcoconut —redSpanishrice,
barbecued ribs, tri-tip, chicken and a whole
roasted pig.
“It wouldn’t be a party without a pig,”
saidJoe Naputi, whohelpedserve the food.
He retired from base food services in 2000,
having worked at The Point and Duke’s.
There was alsoplentyof Finadene, aspicy
sauce for meat andrice. One versionis made
of vinegar, soy sauce, onionandhot pepper;
another is made of lemon, salt, onion and
hot pepper.
“Every military guy who’s gone toGuam
knows Kelaguen and Finadene,”said Mar-
ianArceo, chair of the 30-personcommittee
that planned the event. “For those who’ve
never been, this is an introduction to our
culture andawaytothankeveryone for their
support.”
Arceo retired last year after 23 years at
Naval Air Systems Command at NBVC
Point Mugu.
A display of artifacts and memorabilia
from Guam lined one wall of the pavilion.
There were baskets filled with taro, banan-
as, pineapples andmangoes, andseveral latte
stones were on display, symbols of island
peace.
“I think it’s important to recognize our
culture —what we’ve endured, the obstacles
we’ve overcome, the true strength of what
we’re all about,” said John Diaz, who left
Guam when he was 7 years old and now
lives in Oxnard.
“We are a proud people,” he added.
“Events like this allow us to retain our cul-
tural values and perpetuate them. It’s im-
portant for kids to come, grab ahold of our
culture and become part of this whole
thing.”

TEACHING YOUR CHILDREN GOOD ORAL HYGIENE
NOW MAKES FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE
CALL 1-888-BRIGHT-NOW OR VISIT BRIGHTNOW.COM TO MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT!
FRATT DENTAL CORPORATION
Help your kids form good habits that will serve them a lifetime
What chronic disease affects more than 40% of kindergarten-age children? No, it’s not
asthma and it’s not hay fever. The answer is tooth decay. In fact, despite being largely
preventable, tooth decay is one of the most widespread chronic childhood diseases in
America. So how can you help? By helping your kids form strong oral health habits at
a young age.
The staff at your new Bright Now! Dental offce in Oxnard knows it’s hard to get kids
excited about oral hygiene, but they are available to help. By following these three
simple tips, you can help your child develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.
Start early:
Experts recommend that brushing begin as early as six months, or as soon as your
child’s frst tooth appears. Be sure to use a soft bristle brush and just a touch of
toothpaste to prevent them from swallowing any of it. Before your child reaches a year
old, bring them by a Bright Now! Dental offce for their frst visit. You can fnd Bright Now! Dental in Oxnard and Simi Valley.
Starting early not only gives your child a healthier smile, it will also get them accustomed to daily oral care and regular dental visits.
Get your child involved:
As your child gets older, look for ways to get them involved in their oral health. This can be as simple as letting them pick out their own toothbrush and
toothpaste. Be sure to pre-screen their selection, making sure the toothbrush is soft bristled and ADA approved, and that the toothpaste is safe for their
age. When you feel it is appropriate, let them try their hand at brushing on their own. Although a three-year-old may not have the fne motor skills to
properly brush his or her own teeth, you can let them practice and help them fnish up the areas they miss.
Set a timer:
Dentists recommend brushing last at least two minutes. For children who don’t enjoy brushing their teeth, this can seem like an eternity. By using a
simple timer, children can see the seconds race by and know that the interruption from their playtime is almost over. Some toothbrushes even come with
a built-in timer, or play a song so your child will know how long to brush.
Proper oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can teach your child. By helping them form good habits while they’re young, you’ll help ensure
they have a lasting and healthy smile. After all, a great smile is one of the best gifts a parent can give.

NSWC Port Hueneme Division
The Naval Surface Warfare Center
(NSWC) Port Hueneme Division celebrat-
ed 49 years of service to the United States
Navy last month.
Anniversary events marked the special
day, July 12, including a 5K run/walk
around the base. Afterwards, Capt. Ted
Olson, NSWC Port Hueneme Division
Office of Logistics deputy commander,
addressed the workforce, noting the sig-
nificance of each individual role at NSWC
Port Hueneme Division and how it ties in
to the success of the command.
“On this anniversary, I would like to say
thank you to the entire workforce for your
hard work and dedication throughout the
years,” he said. “It is through your efforts
that this command has achieved such great
success. Every single one of you plays an
integral role in ensuring that NSWC Port
Hueneme Division runs smoothly and ef-
fectively so that our Sailors receive the
support that they deserve.”
He added: “On any given day, you will
find our people around the globe provid-
ing direct fleet support — anytime, any-
where. In fact, on average, we have more
than 150 NSWC Port Hueneme Division
people deployed across five continents,
making sure our Navy remains number
one. It doesn’t matter if you are on a ship
or in a cubicle, every job is vital to the
success of this organization.”
NSWC Port Hueneme Division, com-
manded by Capt. Bill DeBow, is a field
activity of Naval Sea Systems Command
and provides the Navy global fleet with
weapon system in-service engineering, lo-
gistics and test and evaluation. It is located
at Naval Base Ventura County, where it
employs more than 1,900 people.

It doesn’t matter if
you are on a ship or in
a cubicle, every job is
vital to the success of
this organization.

All persons eligible to hunt waterfowl
alone aboard Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC), Point Mugu, are invited to
participate in the annual repair of hunting
blinds. Personnel eligible to hunt water-
fowl include active duty, reserve and re-
tired military personnel; current and re-
tired NBVC Department of Defense
civil service personnel; and NBVC con-
tractor personnel with an NBVC ID
badge. Blind repair will take place during
the month of September, with specific
dates still to be determined.
Volunteers are asked to email their
name, phone number – preferably two
—and eligibility status to Vern at NBVC-
hunting@verizon.net. You may not sign
up someone else. All requests are due no
later than Friday, Aug. 24.
Volunteers will be notified of their as-
signments in early September. There are a
limited number of blinds in need of repair;
therefore, volunteers will be taken on a first
come, first served basis. Volunteers earn
six priority chits to be used during the
hunting season to increase their chances
of getting a desired blind assignment.

Top-name, award-winning surfers are
among the 140 contestants registered for
the 2012 NBVC Point Mugu Surf Con-
test.
The two-day event starts Saturday, Aug.
18, at Naval Base Ventura County, Point
Mugu. Opening ceremonies are at 7 a.m.,
andcompetitionis expectedtorunthrough
5 p.m. Sunday’s events begin at 7:30 a.m.,
with 30-minute finals scheduled to start
around 2 p.m. and an awards ceremony at
4:30 p.m.
Among the surfers registeredinthe Open
Division is Dane Reynolds, who was just
inducted into the Surfers’ Hall of Fame in
Huntington Beach Friday, Aug. 3.
Also registered are local professional
surfer Cory Arrambide, aerial innovator
Christian Fletcher, surf ambassador Mary
Osborne, and Surfing magazine’s 2011
Shaper of the Year Robert Weiner, who
owns a surfboard shop in Ventura.
Competing in the Military Division is
three-time championMatt Merel. Stationed
at Bodega Bay in Northern California, the
Coast Guard machinery repair technician
2nd class will be trying for his fourth Point
Mugu trophy.
The contest, now in its fifth year, draws
top surfers because Mugu has some of the
best waves in Southern California and is
open to the general public only once a year.
The surfing beach faces south, and that,
combined with a submarine canyon and
sandbars, gives it a unique, big wave.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the
surfing community,”saidDanAlpern, mar-
keting director for Morale, Welfare and
Recreation, which puts on the contest. “It
also allows Naval Base Ventura County to
showcase our award-winning stewardship
of the environmentally sensitive beach and
wetlands area inside our gates.
Presenting sponsor of the event is the
Navy Region Southwest Sustainable Solid
Waste Management Program, andrecycling
will be a big theme throughout the two
days.
The Point Mugu Surf Contest is open to
the public. Admission and parking are free.
Entrance is through the Las Posas Gate,
whichwill be openfrom6 a.m. to3 p.m. for
inbound traffic. Guests must bring a valid
photoID, andthe vehicle must have current
registration and proof of insurance.
There will be live entertainment bothSat-
urday and Sunday.

The waves at Point Mugu are considered to be some of the best in Southern California, and top-level surfers take advantage of the only
time of the year when they’re open to the public — the annual Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu Surf Contest — to ride them.
By Capt. Larry Vasquez
Commanding officer, NBVC
Welcome to Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC) and welcome to our annual
Point Mugu Surf Contest!
NBVC is more than just a Navy base;
it’s the county’s largest employer. We have
active duty military members from every
branch of the service working at three
separate locations: Port Hueneme, Point
Mugu and San Nicolas Island. More than
20,000 people come to work here every
day, and we generate almost $2 billion in
economic impact to Ventura County. They
do everything from housekeeping and
grounds maintenance to environmental
and rocket science — yes, I said rocket
science!
The Naval Surface Warfare Center Port
Hueneme Division and the Naval Air War-
fare Center Weapons Division, Point
Mugu, both employ rocket scientists, test-
ing and maintaining our fleet’s defensive
and offensive capabilities. NBVC also
hosts Naval Satellite Operations Center
at Point Mugu, where the Navy’s fleet of
satellites is managed. They fly satellites
for a living.
Speaking of flying, Point Mugu is home
to the West Coast Hawkeye squadrons,
the eyes and ears of the fleet. These unique
aircraft provide command and control for
the fleet, using advanced radar and mon-
itoring systems to keep the ships and air-
craft in their Carrier Strike Group (CSG)
informed and prepared during missions.
They’re like the quarterbacks for the fleet,
watching the field and making calls in the
air.
As you look around Point Mugu, you’ll
notice a wealth of environmental beauty,
including Southern California’s largest
unencroached wetland. NBVC’s award-
winning environmental team monitors
these precious resources and ensures the
Navy’s mission and the Navy’s commit-
ment to environmentally responsible op-
erations are both maintained at the high-
est standard. You can read more about
our environmental efforts in this section.
Out past the surf, about 60 miles off the
coast, is San Nicolas Island (SNI),

2012 NBVC POINT MUGU SURF CONTEST
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
What he might lack in surfing
skills, he makes up for with smil-
ing confidence.
And sheer guts.
Command Master Chief Jon
Smedley of Carrier Airborne
Early Warning Squadron (VAW)
113 is one of five military com-
petitors in the 2012 Point Mugu
Surf Contest from Naval Base
Ventura County —and he’s been
a serious surfer for only two
months.
“I’m sure whatever the bottom
is, I’ll be that guy,” he says, only
half jokingly. “Honestly, I just
want to stand up on the board.”
Smedley’s gotten some last-
minute help from a couple of lo-
cal surfers who live on his block
in Oxnard.
“They grew up surfing,” he
said. “We came down here not
too long ago when there was a
surge so I could see what real
Point Mugu waves are like — in
that six- to seven-foot catego-
ry.”
And?
“I’ve stood up at other beach-
es,” he said. “But I didn’t stand
up that day.”
It’s hard to criticize the surfing
skills of a guy who grew up in
Ohio and Illinois. His father had
him on a surfboard when he was
5 years old in Miami, but after
that, he spent four decades in-
land, on the Gulf Coast or in
other places not known as surfing
hot spots.
He’s been at Point Mugu since
Thanksgiving as the squadron
undergoes maintenance after
serving aboard the USS Ronald
Reagan (CVN 76).
“The surfers make it look pret-
ty easy,” he said. “It looked fun,
so I figured I’d get some good
coaches and give it a shot.”
Smedley grew up in the Mid-
west and in Charlotte, N.C. He
enlisted in 1989 and spent time
on submarines.
“I’ve always liked the water and
just about all outdoor activities,”
he said. “Swimming, cycling, run-
ning — I love it all.”
Smedley took part in the Ad-
miral’s Cup triathlon held June
23 at NBVC Point Mugu. He is-
sued a challenge to his command,
telling the squadron that anyone
who beat himwould get his park-
ing spot for a week.
He lost it for two — one week
each to two different athletes.
“Youth won out,” said the 42-
year-old.
Smedley will have some fans
cheering him on Saturday — and
Sunday if he makes it past the first
round. Leading the charge will be
his wife, Sarah, whom he married
April 15.
“She loves surfing,”he said. “She
wants to try it herself.”
The four other surfers from
NBVC competing in the Military
Division are Aviation Ordnance-
man2ndClass JosephBaranski of
Naval Munitions Center, Detach-
ment Point Mugu; Chief Utilities-
man Miguel Fernandez of Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 5; Lt. Cmdr. Justin
Hawkins of Fleet Logistics Sup-
port Squadron (VR) 55; and Lt.
j.g. Henry Pollock of NMCB 4.

beaches in Southern California.
NBVC’s third location and an anchor for
the 36,000-square-mile sea test range,
which is also part of NBVC. The range
allows the Navy to test weapons and de-
fense systems in restricted air and sea
spaces. We can fire a missile from a base
in China Lake and it can travel all the way
out to SNI without ever crossing commer-
cial air space. This allows us to more
safely design and test our Navy’s weapons
systems.
In between heats, look up the beach on
your right and you’ll see our Home Station
Training Lanes. Originally built to simu-
late urban environments in the Middle
East, this training “town”nowreadies our
troops for deployment to Afghanistan.
They learn howto search and clear rooms,
how to identify and avoid improvised ex-
plosive devices and how to conduct secu-
rity and convoy operations. This diverse
facility is often used by local law enforce-
ment as well, due to the flexibility of the
location and the depth and breadth of
expertise the training staff brings to the
table.
Today, you won’t see our Port Hueneme
facility, where we have a deep-water port
capable of hosting some of the Navy’s
larger ships. Port Hueneme is also home
to the West Coast Seabees, the Navy’s mo-
bile construction force. Seabees can build
just about anything, and we train them
here as well as host several active battal-
ions that deploy around the world on hu-
manitarian and combat missions. They
build roads and airfields as well as schools
and health clinics. This year, the Seabees
are celebrating 70 years of service, so if
you see a Seabee today, wish him or her a
happy birthday!
Thanks again for visiting, and between
heats, read a bit about this diverse Navy
facility and get to know your neighbors
here at NBVC.

2012 NBVC POINT MUGU SURF CONTEST
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
“An amazing surf. My favorite
in Southern California, and I’ve
surfed all of them.”
Mention Point Mugu and eyes
brighten in lifelong surfers like
Robert Weiner.
“It’s a pretty special place,” he
says. “The shape is good and the
wind is favorable, even when
other spots in Ventura are blown
out. It’s clean and rideable in the
afternoons.”
Weiner, who owns Roberts
Surfboards in Ventura and was
named 2011 Shaper of the Year
by Surfing magazine, first tried
Mugu in 1989.
“I made friends with a local
guy in the military and he’d invite
me onto the base,”he said. “Back
then, they had the Point Mugu
Surf Club. You had to go through
a series of tests to qualify to be
in the club, and you had to be
lifeguard-certified.”
He surfed there as often as he
could, and there were no crowds
then.
“Fifteen people and it was a
busy day,” he said.
Weiner, who just turned 50,
still loves Mugu, and he has com-
peted in the Point Mugu Surf
Contest each of the last four
years it’s been held. It’s one of
the few contests he enters.
“I wouldn’t say I’m anti-con-
test,” he said. “In fact, I love
competition. But I’ve never pur-
sued sponsorships.”
These days, he’s the one spon-
soring others.
Weiner grewup in the San Fer-
nando Valley. He first stood up
on a wave when he was 9, and
three years later, he was shaping
his own boards. He started com-
peting at the age of 26 and won
his second National Scholastic
Surfing Association champion-
ship title on the fifth Roberts
Board he’d shaped.
Weiner moved to Ventura
County 25 years ago. He worked
for McCrystal Surfboards in Ox-
nard, and that’s how he got to
know Mugu.
He started his own business in
1994, the same year he won his
first NSSA championship. He
repeated the next year on a Rob-
erts Board and has won two more
since then.
“I was able to prove that my
boards were legitimate and that
they were good enough to be rid-
den at a high level,” he said.
These days, Roberts Surf-
boards sells about 2,500 boards
a year. His White Diamond de-
sign, shaped specifically for local
waves, came out a couple of years
ago; Weiner credits that design
with paving the way for the
Shaper of the Year title. He and
his wife, Laurie, run the business
out of an industrial park in Ven-
tura where he’s been for more
than 15 years.
He’s seen a lot of changes in
the surfing world in his lifetime
— some good, some not.
“When I was a kid, my father
told me I’d never be able to make
a living at surfing,” he recalls.
“And at that time, he was right:
No one could. ‘Surf bums,’ re-
member?”
Everything changed in the
1980s, when surfing started to
become commercialized. Spon-
sorships took off, and now 17-
year-olds are signing million-dol-
lar contracts.
What really amuses Weiner is
today’s “surfer look.”
“People are actually trying to
look like surfers now,”he laughs.
“Can you believe it?”
But on a more serious note,
he wonders if it’s all been for the
good.
“It has taken some of the soul
out of surfing,” he said. “The
pros have agents, and the surfer
is a commodity. There’s not
much loyalty anymore.”
But then he thinks about “that
kid” — the one who hangs out
at the beach for four to six hours
a day, who doesn’t care if he has
a sponsor, who simply loves to
surf.
“Those who have that passion
will do the best over the long
haul,” he says.
“That kid” and others will be
at the Point Mugu Surf Contest
— some of them riding a Rob-
erts Surfboard — and Weiner is
eager to see them. But more
than anything, he’s eager to surf
Mugu again. The first three
years he made the quarterfinals;
last year, he just missed them,
losing to someone half his age.
“Kids,” he said, “sometimes
have an advantage.”
But experience counts.
“If you’re not familiar with
Mugu, you can be thrown off
by the way the wave shifts off
the point,” he said.
He smiles.
“Really, it’s a magical place.”

2012 NBVC POINT MUGU SURF CONTEST
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
AndrewMulligan didn’t pull any punch-
es when he told two 13-year-old girls about
the dangers of the ocean.
Between rip currents and wind, he told
them, the ocean demands respect.
“You’ve gotta learn how to get yourself
in,”he explained. “And you’ve always got
to pay attention to the elements.”
Teaching water safety is one of the most
important aspects of surf lessons, said
Gerry Legaspi, aquatics manager for Na-
val Base Ventura County (NBVC).
“Ocean awareness, surfing etiquette and
safety are fundamentals,” he said.
Mulligan and Caitrin Doles, surf and
junior lifeguard instructors with Morale,
Welfare and Recreation, were leading the
first day of a two-day Youth Surf Clinic
at NBVC Point Mugu Wednesday, Aug.
1. The second session was two days later,
also from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Another two-day clinic will be held Sept.
8 and 9 from 10 a.m. to noon. Cost is $50
for children of military personnel and $55
for children of Department of Defense
workers.
Clarissa Kano and her 13-year-old
friend attended the Aug. 1 clinic. Clarissa’s
mom, Sirina Kano, was eager to have her
daughter become more comfortable in the
ocean.
“This is a great way to enjoy the water,”
said Kano, whose husband, Philip, is with
the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons
Division. “Clarissa has done kayaking,
and she likes swimming, so I thought she
might enjoy this as well.”
She was impressed with the instruc-
tors.
“They’re taking good care of them,”she
said. “I’d rather they learn fromthese life-
guards — people who really know what
they’re doing.”
The clinic began with Mulligan and
Doles sitting down with the girls to talk
about ocean basics. Then they hauled out
surfboards and explained their different
parts — from the rails, or the sides of the
boards, to the fin.
The instructors then placed the boards
on a crest of sand so the girls could prac-
tice the routine of paddling out, then
jumping up into the surfer’s stance.
Then it was out to the ocean.
Clarissa said the next day she was eager
to return for the clinic’s second session,
but she admitted the first class wasn’t
easy.
“It was kind of scary,”she said. “Going
under water is the worst —when the wave
knocks you over.”
But then she smiled.
“The fun part is when you catch a wave,”
she said. “That’s the best.”
The Youth Surf Clinics are open to
those 9 to 17 years old. Students must be
able to swim 100 yards.
The Aquatics Center also offers year-
round surf clinics for adults. For more
information, call the Hueneme Aquatics
Center at 982-4752 or the Mugu Aquatics
Center at 989-7788.

The fun part is when
you catch a wave.

2012 NBVC POINT MUGU SURF CONTEST
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
So you want to give surfing a try,
but you don’t want to go out and
spend hundreds of dollars on a board
when you’re not sure you’ll like the
sport.
Time to visit the Outdoor Adventure
Center.
Located at 23rd Avenue and Pacific
Road at Naval Base Ventura County,
Port Hueneme, the Outdoor Adven-
ture Center will rent you a surfboard
for $12 a day or $18 for the whole
weekend.
“Surfboards get rented out a lot,”
said Ken Wernau, the manager of the
Auto Skills Center who also runs the
Outdoor Adventure Center in the same
building. “Some of the people who
rent them are here on TDY. They surf,
but they just don’t have their boards
out here.”
Ernie Rico, an Outdoor Adventure
Center recreation aide, said rentals
give neophytes a chance to try surfing
“without wasting a lot of money.”
The Outdoor Adventure Center is
run by Morale, Recreation and Wel-
fare. Its inventory ranges from shovels,
horseshoes and coolers all the way up
to Casita campers.
The most popular items in summer-
time are kayaks and camping gear,
Wernau said. In wintertime, snow-
boards fly out the door.
“A lot of people say they rent from
us because it’s convenient and because
of the price,” Wernau said.
A kayak, for example, costs $15 a
day. Off base, the cost would be clos-
er to $20 an hour. A kayak carrier is
an extra $1.50. A kayak trailer is
$10.
An average of 60 people a month
use the center.
“When I was in the military, I had
no idea something like this was avail-
able,” Wernau said. “It’s great. We just
need to get the word out that this
stuff ’s available.”
All items are washed down before
they’re rented out again.
“Everything’s clean,” he said.
Some of it is also brand new. On
Aug. 2, Wernau pulled a shiny stand-
up paddleboard out of its box and cut
away the cellophane wrapping. Its un-
touched surface sparkled in the sun.
Not bad for $20 a day.

Adventure Center and the Auto Skills Center
next to it at Naval Base Ventura County,
Port Hueneme, is dwarfed by the brand-new
stand-up paddleboard that can be rented for
$20 a day. Also available are surfboards for
$12 a day or $18 a weekend and kayaks for
$15 a day or $22 a weekend.
The Outdoor Adventure Center at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, is
open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday;
weekend rates run from 3 p.m. Friday
to noon Monday. For more information,
call 982-4282. A smaller center with
limited hours and limited inventory is
at NBVC Point Mugu, next to the Hobby
Shop near the Mugu Gym.

2012 NBVC POINT MUGU SURF CONTEST
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) is closing in on Califor-
nia’s goal of keeping at least 50
percent of its waste out of landfills
by 2015.
The Navy Region Southwest
Sustainable Solid Waste Manage-
ment Program is the presenting
sponsor of the 2012 NBVC Point
Mugu Surf Contest.
NBVC is currently recycling
nearly 41 percent of its waste —
40.86 percent, to be precise —ac-
cording to Lloyd Nash, coordina-
tor of NBVC’s sustainable solid
waste management program.
NBVCis one of 10 Navy installa-
tions in California and Nevada
that make upNavy RegionSouth-
west.
Because it’s cheaper to recycle
thanit is tohaul waste toa landfill,
that figure represents acost savings
of $481,000 so far this year.
Nashsaidthe 2012 Surf Contest
presents an ideal opportunity to
encourage visitors to recycle, and
it lets the general public know
about the Navy’s recycling ef-
forts.
“This is a great thing for us,”he
said. “It shows the Navy’s commit-
ment to recycling, to helping pro-
long Mother Nature.”
So far this year, NBVC has di-
verted more than 2,318 tons of
material from landfills. That in-
cludes wood pallets, cardboard,
scrap metal, copper wire, plastic
bottles, aluminumcans, office pa-
per, shredded paper, toner car-
tridges and — being that NBVC
is a military base — “expended
brass,” or spent cartridges of 50
caliber and under.
The 31st Seabee Readiness
Group, Force Protection and Ma-
rine units on the base are the main
generators of spent cartridges,
Nash said.
“They keep us busy,” he add-
ed.
The base even has a furniture
reuse program. “Just give us a call
and we’ll pick up your old office
furniture and get it to people in
need,” Nash said.
He said the key to reaching the
50 percent level is continuing edu-
cation.
“There are still a lot of people
who are putting waste where they
shouldn’t,”he said. “Office paper,
cardboard– they never gointothe
wastebasket.”
He’s hoping base employees and
residents will continue to create
new habits that will reduce the
waste stream, prevent pollution,
lower the costs of solid waste dis-
posal and, inthe end, conserve the
Earth’s natural resources.
“We just have to keep educating
people and encouraging one an-
other to participate in the pro-
gram,” he said. “People need to
take responsibility for their
waste.”
In a way, Nash admits, teaching
the importance of recycling to the
surfing community is preaching to
the choir.
“As a group, surfers are a very
proactive community because of
their passionandlove for the ocean
and the Earth,” he said. “How-
ever, it’s always important to in-
crease awareness. Sometimes we
fall into complacency. We’re in a
rush, and we don’t take the time
to take those small steps that can
make a big difference.”
Nash has been the solid waste
coordinator at the base for six
years. So, does he recycle?
“Yes I do,”he saidproudly, add-
ing that he’s constantly pestering
his family to do the same.
“My wife screams at me all the
time,” he laughs.
He’s found that often, young-
sters are more conscious about
recycling than adults are.
“They’ll say, ‘Hey, no, you’re
supposedtorecycle that!’”he said.
“I think Earth Day and different
presentations throughout the year
have helped with that.”
For more information on recy-
cling, or to arrange for a pickup,
call Nash at 989-9899.
Recycling efforts continue at Naval Base Ventura County
Chances are that at some point during
the 2012 NBVC Point Mugu Surf Con-
test, you’ll spot a California sea lion
poking its head out of the water.
That’s because thousands of sea lions
— as well as northern elephant seals
— call the area around Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) home.
Three different geographic areas make
up the base.
NBVC Point Mugu, where the surf
contest is being held, includes 2,300
acres of environmentally sensitive wet-
lands and miles of beaches.
NBVC Port Hueneme includes the
only deep-water port between Los An-
geles and the San Francisco Bay area.
And NBVC San Nicolas Island, 65
miles south of Point Mugu, is a 3-mile-
wide, 9-mile-long outcropping that is
one of the world’s largest breeding
grounds of Northern elephant seals. In
all, the island plays host to 175,000
California sea lions, 20,000 Northern
elephant seals and 800 harbor seals.
Like each of the other seven Channel
Islands, San Nicolas has its own species
of Island Fox, which is classified as a
protected species. So is the Island Night
Lizard, found only on San Nicolas, San
Clemente and Santa Barbara islands.
Mugu Lagoon contains five federal-
and state-protected species in the wet-
land environment — four birds and one
flowering marsh plant.
The plant is the Salt Marsh Bird’s
Beak, a purplish plant known to be
found in only four locations in the world.
It is a hemi-parasite, meaning its roots
attach to the roots of the host plant, but
the host does not die. Flags in the marsh-
es or along the road mark the plant’s
boundaries and are to be avoided.
The birds are the Light-footed Clapper
Rail, the California Least Tern, the
Western Snowy Plover and the Belding’s
Savannah Sparrow. Until recently, the
Brown Pelican was also on the list, but
the species that was nearly wiped out
due to pesticides has made a comeback
and was taken off protection lists in
2009.

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Across the Department of Defense, the
issue of sexual violence is at the forefront.
Military leadership is taking a proactive
approach to battle this issue through pre-
vention efforts that aim to build a culture
that does not tolerate sexual assault.
“We must send the signal that this is not
a problemwe are going to ignore,”Defense
Secretary Leon Panetta told the House of
Representatives in April.
Throughout the Navy, that message is
being heard loud and clear.
As the Chief of Naval Operations, Adm.
Jonathan Greenert, stated on his official
blog earlier this year: “We need to commit,
as a Navy, to not accept this crime at our
commands and get rid of the myth that
it’s just ‘part of life.’ It is not.”
And we are committing.
Navy leadership is ensuring that this is-
sue remains highly visible. Several new
prevention measures have materialized in
the past months, and leaders at all levels
are being required to take proactive steps
to protect every Sailor against sexual as-
sault.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month in
April saw extra prevention training for
each unit, and the effort has not stopped
there.
Master Mobilized Training Teams will
soon disperse throughout the force for
focused prevention training that will reach
every Sailor by the end of 2012.
Although prevention is the ultimate
goal, the Navy is also working to improve
system response for individuals who ex-
perience a sexual assault.
Victims who file an unrestricted report
can request to be transferred from their
unit to be protected from the alleged of-
fender or other forms of harassment. The
decision to approve or deny this request
must be made by the victim’s commanding
officer within 72 hours of the written re-
quest; if it is denied, the first flag officer
in the victim’s chain of command must
review it and approve or deny the request
within an additional 72 hours.
The Navy Sexual Assault Prevention
and Response (SAPR) program has also
expanded its services to better support
military dependents, 18 and older, who
have been assaulted by someone other
than a spouse or intimate partner. While
SAPRhas always been able to assist these
victims with unrestricted reports, as of
January 2012, SAPRvictimadvocates and
the sexual assault response coordinator
can offer these dependents resources
through the restricted reporting option if
they want to maintain confidentiality and
not informlawenforcement or their spon-
sor’s chain of command.
The Navy is also encouraging every
command to heavily market the Depart-
ment of Defense (DoD) Safe Helpline,
which is a 24-hour resource that victims
can call, text or chat online fromanywhere
in the world to connect with the nearest
sexual assault response coordinator or
victim advocate.
Ultimately, leadership can only be part
of the solution; it depends on the com-
mitment of every Sailor to be proactive
and step in before an assault occurs. Pro-
tect your shipmates from becoming po-
tential victims or offenders and knowthat
those who have been drinking cannot give
legal consent.
Sexual assault affects us all; it devastates
an individual and depletes a unit’s mission
readiness. Remember that if someone is
assaulted, it is never that person’s fault.
Listen without judgment and connect
them with the right resources.
If you have been sexually assaulted and
would like to speak confidentially with a
counselor, or connect to a local advocate,
call the DoD Safe Helpline at 1-877-995-
5247 or visit www.safehelpline.org.

response coordinator at Naval Base Ventura
