More than 60 people visited
San Nicolas Island (SNI) June 29
through July 2 for Family Week-
end, an annual event that allows
people who work on the island to
show their loved ones where they
live and play for much of the
year.
SNI, part of Naval Base Ven-
tura County, is 65 miles south of
Point Mugu. The island team
helps field and test various weap-
ons technologies — including
air-to-air, air-to-surface and sur-
face-to-surface missiles — and
access is extremely limited. There
are no families, no children and
no pets.
But on Family Weekend, chil-
dren are everywhere — in the
pool, in the galley, playing ping
pong in the club and basketball
in the gym, flying kites and ex-
ploring tidepools.
“It’s great to have the kids out
here,”said Lt. Cmdr. Scott Strad-
er, the officer in charge of SNI.
“It allows us to show them what
their parents do here and to enjoy
the beauty of the place.”

Question: Please reconsider the closing of the
Point Mugu Post Office. I am truly disappointed and
frustrated. It is so convenient to have a post office on
base. The staff is extremely helpful and caring, and
there are no lines to wait in like there are at a normal
post office.
Answer: Thank you for allowing me the chance to
address this concern. The decision to close the Point
Mugu postal location was not mine, but rests with the
United States Postal Service. The location is a USPS
contract facility, and the current contract has expired.
Low retail sales at the site was one of the reasons
for the closure. Without enough sales to cover costs,
it’s not efficient for the Postal Service to keep this site
open or attractive for contractors to take the chance.
The postmaster is working to find a new contract
holder and is aware of the hardship this closure cre-
ates for our Sailors and their families.
For now, post office boxes at Point Mugu will
remain open. If a solution is not found in a timely
manner, the Postal Service plans to transfer boxes to
Port Hueneme or refund payments to box holders at
Point Mugu.
To help meet some of the demand created by the
closure, the Navy Exchange at Point Mugu is now
selling stamps. For package mailing services, the
nearest full-service post office locations are at 560 E.
Pleasant Valley Road in Port Hueneme (approximate-
ly 5 miles away) and at 2532 Saviers Road in Oxnard
(approximately 5.5 miles away). Both locations are
open Monday through Friday until 5:30 p.m. and
have 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday hours.
In our current and tough economic times, all base
services are under review. Bottom line: I encour-
age everyone to continue to use the services on base
— the NEX, the commissary, the galleys, Single Sailor
programs and Fleet and Family Support programs.
If we are not meeting your expectations, let us
know.
Why can’t Point Mugu Post Offce reopen? w

The chief staff officer of Naval Base
Ventura County was the featured speaker
at an annual Independence Day event
honoring Ventura County veterans.
Capt. David Sasek spoke to the audience
of 400 — many of whom fought in our
nation’s wars — at the annual “Salute to
Our Veterans” held July 3 at the Cypress
Place senior living facility in Ventura.
He talked about a document he holds
dear: the Declaration of Independence, a
copy of which he keeps in his office and
which he reads often to his children, in-
cluding his 6-year-old.
“I want them to understand their heri-
tage and their history,” he said.
He called the Declaration “a bold state-
ment, and a bold idea,” but pointed out
that it was just that — an idea.
“Change,” he said, “requires action.”
For the next several minutes, he shared
with the audience the challenges our
Founding Fathers faced in carrying out
that action.
George Washington cobbled together
an army made up of farmers, silversmiths,
coopers and cooks. Yet it would go on to
defeat the best army in the world at that

The Navy Lodge at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC),
Port Hueneme, received the
2011 Carlson Award for excel-
lence in service during a cere-
mony at the facility June 26.
The Carlson Award is grant-
ed to Navy Lodge facilities that
display measurably superior
performance in all aspects of
service, including hospitality,
housekeeping, financial respon-
sibility and client satisfaction.
This was the first time the Port
Hueneme facility earned the
honor.
“This is the highest award the
Navy Lodge issues each year,”
said Capt. Chris Bower, depu-
ty commander for the Navy
Exchange Service Command
(NEXCOM), who was on hand
to present the award. Bower
and Capt. Larry Vasquez, NB-
VC’s commanding officer, in-
dividually recognized each
employee for their contribution
to winning the award.
“Each of you made this
award possible,” Vasquez said.
“It’s another piece of the pic-
ture that makes NBVC con-
tinue in its tradition of excel-
lence.”

Six teams plan to compete in this year’s
Battle of Commands, a day and a half of
all-out warfare in slip-n-slide, seven-legged
racing, human pyramid-building, sand-
castle construction and seven other con-
tests.
The water competitions start at 5 p.m.
Thursday, July 19, at the Aquatics Center
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Port Hueneme.
First up will be the slip-n-slide, in which
contestants will slide across a soap-slick-
ened strip of plastic in an inner tube. The
person who goes the farthest wins.
In the pool, teams will compete in an
inner-tube relay and boat races.
Competition will heat up earlier than
the day on Friday, July 20, at Naval Base
Ventura County, Point Mugu, when the
teams gather at Family Beach at 8 a.m. to
slug it out on an obstacle course. After
that comes a water relay, Izzy-Dizzy — a
relay that contestants run after making
themselves dizzy — a seven-legged race,
beach flags and the human pyramid con-
test.
In the meantime, other team members
will be farther down the beach construct-
ing their team’s sandcastle.
The Battle of Commands wraps up in
the early afternoon with the ever-popular
tug-o-war.
Anyone with base access is welcome to
watch the events.

HONOLULU – Lt. Cmdr. David Jayne,
the operations officer for Naval Mobile Con-
structionBattalion(NMCB) 40, receivedthe
2012Admiral BenMoreell Awardfor Logis-
tics Competence (Officer) from the Navy
League of the United States at the June 29
annual Navy League convention in Hono-
lulu.
Since 1984, the annual award has recog-
nized one officer and one enlisted service
member fromthe Navyor Marine Corps for
outstanding personal contribution that has
advancedlogistics readiness andcompetence
for the Navy.
The Navy League’s National Awards
Board, chairedbyJ. WilliamMiddendorf II,
former Secretary of the Navy, chose 20
awardees from 800 applicants from the na-
tion’s seaservices: U.S. Navy, Marines, Coast
Guard and Merchant Marine.
“It was truly an honor to be selected for
theAdmiral BenMoreell AwardbytheNavy
League,”saidJayne. “It is particularlyreward-
ing since Adm. Moreell is knownas the ‘Fa-
ther of the Seabees,’ andhe was instrumental
intheestablishment of Seabeebattalions dur-
ing World War II.”
Jayne called it ironic that an operations
officer was selected for a logistics award.
“But it demonstrates the oldadage, ‘Ama-
teurs talktactics, professionals talklogistics,’”
he added. “OperatinginAfghanistanduring
our last deployment was extremelychalleng-
ing. We were spread across 12 detail sites,
supporting four regional commanders. We
usedorganic equipment, coalitionassets and
host nation trucks to support our logistics
operations. Some of the sites hadlittle more
than thousand-year-old goat trails leading
to them, but we made it work.”
Jayne was nominated based on a body of
work that started in Afghanistan, included
onehomeport trainingcycleinPort Hueneme
andconcludedwithadeployment tothe Pa-
cific.
In Afghanistan, he led the battalion in lo-
gistical planning and contingency construc-
tion missions to support U.S. Central Com-
mand counter-insurgency operations across
four International SecurityAssistance Force
regional commands (RCs).
While deployed, the battalion supported
the surge of 30,000 troops directed by the
commander in chief to bolster the Afghani-
stanstrategy. NMCB40 completedthe con-
structionof ForwardOperatingBase (FOB)
DehDadi II, thelargest earth-movingproject
by a Seabee battalion since World War II.
The battalion also supported Operation
Hamkari inthe Kandahar region, closedthe
last gap in “Golden Hour”medical evacua-
tion coverage in the country by building a
helicopter landingzone at FOBSheberghan,
andestablishedthe initial operatingcapacity
for the Northern Distribution Network, a
Secretary of Defense priority for Afghani-
stan.
As NMCB40was the last battalionslated
for RC-North, Jayne was alsoresponsible for
movingits entire Table of Allowance toFOB
Leatherneck in RC-Southwest.
Duringacondensedhomeport for training,
Jayne oversaw the completion of five pre-
deployment projects, four command post
exercises, two embark events and a highly
successful field training exercise. He also led
the planningandexecutionof the battalion’s
U.S. Pacific Command deployment across
11 geographically diverse locations.
“This is abattalionaward,”Jayne said. “It
would not have been possible without the
entire NMCB40 team, including the battal-
ion’s supply department, embark organiza-
tion, and the convoy security element that
supported our operations across Afghani-
stan.
“I’ve always believed that if you can get a
Seabee where he needs to go with the tools
andmaterials toget the jobdone, he will find
a way to accomplish the mission, and we
proved that time and time again.”

Six of the 46 teams that took part in the
American Cancer Society’s (ACS) annual
Relay for Life last monthat Hueneme High
School came from the Navy.
Together, they raised more than $9,000
of the $40,000 collected during the event.
Fielding teams that walked all or part of
the 24-hour relay that began at 9 a.m. June
23 were Naval Mobile Construction Bat-
talion 5; Navy Operational Support Center
Point Mugu; Naval Criminal Investigative
Service at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC); NBVC Force Protection; Naval
Test Wing Pacific; and Air Test and Evalu-
ation Squadron (VX) 30.
“The Navy’s participation in the ACS
Relay For Life of Port Hueneme has grown
inthe past fewyears,”saidTracySissonPhil-
lips, who will be the event chair for 2013.
“Without their continued partnership, the
event would not be the success it is today.”
Phillips said both active duty and civilian
personnel were instrumental inthe planning
and execution of this year’s event. On the
day of the event alone, more than 120 ac-
tive-dutypersonnel fromNBVChelpedwith
setup.
“We are optimistic about future commu-
nity engagement opportunities between
NBVC personnel and Relay,” she said.
Hueneme’s goal for the event was $58,000,
so organizers are planning one more fund-
raiser: Barkfor Life, a noncompetitive walk
for dogs and their owners. Phillips said it
will be held sometime in August. Check
www.relayforlife.org/porthuenemeca/ for
updates.

Moving every 2.9 years often means
learning a newculture with every transfer.
Schools have a culture —every state, every
county, every school district has different
ways of doing things. If you are new to
Naval Base Ventura County and will have
a child in local schools, here is some in-
formation you might find helpful.
Class assignments
Typically, elementary schools will post
class assignments in the front of the school
the week prior to the first day. Middle
schools will typically hand out students’
schedules the first day of school; some
may have an orientation day one week
prior. High schools will usually have a
student schedule pickup day the week
prior to the start of school, with a differ-
ent day of the week for each grade.
School supplies
If you were not given a “suggested”
school supply list when you registered your
student, you might find a list on the
school’s website or posted in the school
office window. Teachers may also have
their own list. The best option may be to
buy some of the basics — pencils, pens,
college-ruled notebook paper, a sturdy
backpack — and be prepared to go to the
store the first day of school.
Supplemental programs and
extracurricular activities
Many supplemental programs have been
cut from school programs in California.
Many elementary schools no longer have
gym class, art class, music or band. Those
that do usually pay for it through parent
fundraising and community foundations.
This doesn’t mean that your child will not
have the opportunity to participate in
physical education, art or music. Typi-
cally, the regular classroom teacher will
integrate it into the daily curriculum. Stu-
dents in middle school and high school
will have gym class required, and art or
music will often be an elective course.
Sports and extracurricular activities are
offered at the middle schools and high
schools; however, parents may be asked
to help fund their child’s participation.
Dress code
Dress codes vary within the districts in
Ventura County. Some elementary and
middle schools have a uniform require-
ment. Others, including high schools, have
dress code policies forbidding certain
items. Many middle schools and high
schools do not allow any professional
sports team clothing. However, many will
encourage college team logos. It is best to
check with your student’s school before
the first day.
School performance
Students are given standardized tests
every spring. In the fall, results are calcu-
lated and schools are given a score, called
the Average Performance Index (API).
This is used to determine if the school is
meeting its Annual Yearly Progress (AYP).
These scores can be found on the Califor-
nia Department of Education website at
www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ap.
— For information on any K-12 education-
related issues, contact NBVC School Liaison
Officer Monica James at 805-989-5211 or
email monica.james@navy.mil.

Worship schedule
As many of you know, I recently made
my permanent change of station from
Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S.
Atlantic Fleet Ministry Center in Norfolk,
Va., to Naval Base Ventura County as the
newest staff chaplain.
When the time arrived for my transfer,
I was debating whether to sell my vehicle
—also known as The Gas Guzzler —and
fly out to California or drive coast to
coast. I decided that since I have traveled
to 37 countries in my lifetime, yet have
seen very little of my own, it was time to
see some of the USA.
I had a couple of different routes in
mind. I could blaze across Interstate 40,
which I have taken before, and make it
here sooner, or I could take Interstate 80
and see some states I have never seen. I
decided to take the 80.
Everyone who has ever taken a long
road trip knows there are some essentials
to making this kind of journey: a double
shot of espresso to start each day, a GPS
with an old-school map on standby, a
spare tire at the very least and, without
fail, a good radio station to stay alert and
entertained.
So the road trip began, and as I drove
through West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana,
Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah and
Nevada, I changed radio stations ran-
domly just to see what everyone was play-
ing. The one song that played repeatedly
was Jason Aldean’s “Fly Over States.”
Normally, it would have bored me to tears
to hear the same song across eight states,
but it turned out to be the perfect com-
panion for my drive.
As I listened, I felt very appreciative to
be an American, to be serving my country
in the military, to belong to this vast, beau-
tiful land that has much to offer. I felt
proud to know that our country praises
hard work, roots for the underdog and
stands for freedom.
I witnessed through my windshield the
skill of the farmers, ranchers and the aver-
age American at work. Now, I too under-
stand why “God made those fly over
states.” There’s a Bible passage that says,
“The hills rejoice on every side, the pas-
tures are clothed with flocks; the valleys
also are covered with grain; they shout for
joy, they also sing.” (Psalm 65:12-13)
I think nature has a way of reminding
us that God is good and adds His blessing
to our land. Sometimes we just have to
slow down and take it all in to recognize
His handiwork.
So I encourage you, next time you are
PCSing cross-country and the opportu-
nity arises, don’t fly. “Take a ride.”
May God’s presence be the strength and
sure foundation of your life!
Road trip an opportunity to take in God’s handiwork
Chaplain’s
corner
with Lt. Lesa
Welliver
About 70 youngsters from Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) took part in
Vacation Bible School June 25-29 at
NBVC Point Mugu’s Chapel of Faith.
“This is a great way to bring kids and
parents together and let children learn new
skills, get some exercise and experience
the foundations of the faith,”said Lt. Lesa
Welliver, staff chaplain for NBVC.
From 9 a.m. to noon, children ages 5 to
12 entered “Sonshine National Forest.”
Each day’s lessons incorporated not only
faith, but also a camp theme. Wednesday,
for example, included a class in survival
skills like creating a shelter, essentials for
a backpack and first-aid.
Every morning was divided into 25-min-
ute stations — games, snack, crafts, Bible
story and sing-and-play. Friday featured
a presentation for parents, with the young-
sters singing songs they’d learned during
the week.
Religious Ministries coordinated the
event, with help from 36 volunteers —
most of them parents.

Before considering a pet, consider the
price.
A home can provide plenty of love and
care for a new animal. However, it’s not
just who will do the chores associated with
a newpet that you need to discuss. It’s also
the cost.
In 2010, American households spent
more than $60 billion on their “animal
family members,” according to the U.S.
Census Bureau.
Consider carefully which creature would
fit your budget.
The go-to pet is, of course, “man’s best
friend.” Depending on the size of dog,
costs could run from $300 to $700 a year.
On average, the annual cost for owning a
small dog is $355, a mid-size dog is $470
and a large dog is $650.
Cats aren’t any easier on the budget. On
average, a cat can cost up to $495 a year.
A guinea pig is even more expensive
— $635 a year. You can opt for a smaller
mammal, such as a hamster, that only
costs an average of $300 a year.
If mammals aren’t the type of pet you
want, consider that a small bird will cost
you around $200 annually. A fish seems
to be the smallest investment, with an av-
erage annual cost of only $35.
The most expensive animal to own is
the rabbit. The American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASP-
CA) states that the cost to feed and main-
tain bunnies is $730 a year. Part of the
high price is for the veterinary costs. Bun-
nies are considered exotic and require a
specialist, which is typically more expen-
sive. Anna Coulson, whose husband, Karl,
is an ensign with Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalion (NMCB) 3, travels to Thou-
sand Oaks for a specialist to treat her two
bunnies.
These large figures are easy to reach
considering all the expenses that come
with owning a pet: food, grooming, an-
nual shots, veterinary visits, toys. Megan
Madge and her husband, Joe, an ensign
with NMCB 5, pay $35 to have each of
their two Shetland Sheepdogs groomed.
This is considerably lower than their pre-
vious duty station, Washington, D.C.,
where they paid $90 per dog.
Another expense to consider is boarding
costs during vacations.
Also, some people find it practical to
purchase pet insurance in case any major
medical expenses occur.
If you are planning to bring a pet into
your family but are unsure about the cost
and howit will affect your budget, contact
the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society for
a one-on-one budget consultation at 805-
982-4409.

NSWC, Port Hueneme Division
Naval Surface Warfare Center
(NSWC), Port Hueneme Division,
hosted a joint event with Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) June
21 to celebrate National Asian
American/Pacific Islander Heritage
Month.
The observance featured key
speaker Francey Lim Youngberg,
the deputy assistant secretary on
Intergovernmental Affairs at the
U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD).
The theme for the event was
“Striving for Excellence in Leader-
ship, Diversity and Inclusion.”
NBVC Command Master Chief
Thomas Cyr provided opening re-
marks for the occasion, noting the
many contributions that Asian-Pa-
cific Americans have made not only
to the military but also to Ameri-
can values. He emphasized that the
observance was “a way to celebrate
the strength of mixed cultures and
diversity.”
Youngberg reflected on her tran-
sition to American life as a young
girl after immigrating with her fam-
ily to the U.S. from the Philip-
pines.
“Fortunately, I had my parents
and teachers to help me,” she said,
noting that many Asian-Pacific im-
migrants are not always fortunate
to have that kind of support.
Youngberg became a success
story in her own right, graduating
from Wellesley College and Har-
vard Law School. She was a tax
attorney for a corporate firm, but
found a new calling in the early
1990s.
“Diversity is really what makes
up a community,” she explained,
“so I decided to start advocating
for services on behalf of the Asian
community.”
According to her official biogra-
phy, she became the founding ex-
ecutive director of the Asian-Pa-
cific American Institute for
Congressional Studies; mobilized
community leaders and business
owners to save the Mayor’s Office
of Asian-Pacific Islander Affairs in
Washington, D.C.; and helped the
Smithsonian Asian-Pacific Ameri-
can Program with its initial five-
year strategic plan.
Her efforts earned her public rec-
ognition as one of the most influ-
ential Asians in America — a dis-
tinction that continues today as she
works to further the government’s
Asian-Pacific community initiatives
in her appointed role with HUD.
Cmdr. Todd Ehrhardt, the chief
staff officer of NSWC, Port Hue-
neme Division, offered closing re-
marks, reiterating the importance
of diversity and thanking Young-
berg for her contribution to the
event.
The celebration was followed by
a lunch featuring Asian-Pacific
fare. The event and the lunch were
coordinated by NSWC, Port Hue-
neme Division’s Asian-Pacific Is-
lander Committee and NBVC’s
Asian-Pacific American Commit-
tee.

30th NCR Public Affairs
Capt. Rodney M. Moore relieved Capt.
Bret Muilenburg as the commander of the
30th Naval Construction Regiment (30th
NCR) during a ceremony June 22 aboard
Naval Base Ventura County, Port Huen-
eme.
Muilenburg commanded the regiment
as well as Task Force Forager during a
recent yearlong deployment in Afghani-
stan. He led more than 4,200 personnel
from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Ma-
rine Corps whose main mission was com-
bat and general engineering in support of
United States Forces, Afghanistan and
International Security Assistance Force
Joint Command.
“The command’s greatest accomplish-
ment during my time at the 30th was dem-
onstrating that a Navy construction regi-
ment can command joint engineering
forces in combat operations,” said Mui-
lenburg, calling the deployment a highlight
of his career.
Rear Adm. Paula C. Brown, deputy
commander of the 1st Naval Construction
Division, presided over the ceremony and
praised both men for their leadership. She
particularly recognized Muilenburg for his
efforts in Afghanistan.
“Your 30th Naval Construction Reg-
iment and their supporting units direct-
ly enabled freedom of movement for
coalition forces and provided security
and stability and economic progress for
the people of Afghanistan,” she said.
Brown presented Muilenburg with the
Legion of Merit award following her
remarks.
Moore, a Shelbyville, Ind., native, re-
turns to 30th NCR after serving previ-
ously as the chief staff officer from 2006
to 2008. More recently he served within
the Naval Facilities Engineering Com-
mand (NAVFAC) expeditionary pro-
grams office.
Upon assuming command, Moore
remarked that he was proud to be “re-
joining this battle-proven regiment.”
“You are fierce warriors, compassion-
ate builders and devoted patriots,”
Moore said. “I look forward to serving
with you as we respond to the nation’s
latest call to pivot to the Pacific with
our pursuit of engineering excellence
with honor and success.”
30th NCR provides operational com-
mand and control over all Navy con-
struction battalions deployed to the
Pacific Command area of responsibili-
ty.

CSFE
The Center for Seabees and Fa-
cilities Engineering (CSFE) re-
cently selected Wayne Ayala of
the Naval Construction Training
Center (NCTC), Port Hueneme,
as the CSFE Civilian Instructor
of the Year.
Ayala was chosen from among
instructors at not only Port Hue-
neme, but also the three other
learning sites managed by the
CSFE: NCTC Gulfport, Miss.;
CSFEDetachment Fort Leonard
Wood, Mo.; and CSFE Detach-
ment Sheppard Air Force Base,
Texas.
“Mr. Ayala really cares about
his students,” said Builder 2nd
Class (SCW) Deophalus Leonard,
who is taking planning and esti-
mating classes. “He is always will-
ing to help out a struggling stu-
dent and is quick to identify
different learning styles. He is the
best instructor I have ever had.”
Cmdr. Scott Loeschke, com-
manding officer of NCTC Port
Hueneme, agreed wholeheartedly
with the choice.
“I was definitely excited,” he
said. “It is a big honor consider-
ing the field of candidates
throughout the CSFE domain.
He earned it for his students and
the command. The board could
not have selected a better instruc-
tor.”
During 2011, Ayala trained 45
students, delivering 1,440 contact
hours of instruction with no aca-
demic drops or failures. In addi-
tion, he was instrumental in the
planning and execution of a mo-
bile training team that provided
construction management train-
ing to deployed Seabees in Guam
and Japan.
“Three things set Mr. Ayala
ahead of the competition,” Loe-
schke said. “One is his knowledge.
He is an incredibly smart guy and
has extensive knowledge. Second
is his leadership. As a retired mas-
ter chief he provides a tremendous
amount of leadership to the com-
mand. Finally, Mr. Ayala really
cares about his students. It is ob-
vious in the student critiques.”
Among his other accomplish-
ments, Ayala was at the forefront
for the designandimplementation
of the new Naval Construction
Force (NCF) CrewLeader Hand-
book, whichwill be usedthrough-
out the NCF for construction
project planning.
He also helped CSFEcomplete
and implement the Planning and
Estimating Specialist “C”School
course curriculum update, which
included new reference materials
and student activities. The cur-
riculum change will benefit stu-
dents heading out on deployment
around the world.

If you are a little apprehensive about going to the dentist, you’re not alone. Fifty percent of Americans say they
experience anxiety over visiting the dentist. Many admit they visit
less frequently than they should as a result, and some avoid going
to the dentist altogether. Tese skipped visits can have terrible
consequences, and often lead to even higher levels of anxiety.
Regular check-ups and teeth cleanings are the best way to avoid
dental anxiety, because they help avoid the need for invasive and
expensive dental procedures. Your new Bright Now! Dental ofce
in Oxnard knows that the dentist may not be your favorite place
to visit, but we want to help make your dental appointment as
pleasant as possible. By following these three simple tips, you can
help alleviate your stress and brighten your smile.
Talk to your dentist
Make sure your dentist knows you are nervous! Te staf at Bright Now! Dental in Oxnard and Simi Valley
are happy to work with you to help ease your anxiety, so be sure to talk to them about it up front. If you are
apprehensive about a procedure, ask them to explain it to you so you will know what to expect.
Ask questions
Fear of the unknown can leave you to assume the worst case scenario, so don’t be afraid to ask questions about
your visit. Your Bright Now! Dentist or oral hygienist can walk you through the planned procedures and talk to
you as the visit progresses. When you know ahead of time what to expect and how long will it take, you’ll feel
much more at ease.
Just do it
Even if you don’t feel ready, convince yourself to visit a dentist. If it has been a long time since your last visit, you
may be surprised at how much dental procedures and technology have improved.
Tough you may be apprehensive, the reasons to see your dentist far outweigh the short termbenefts of avoidance.
By maintaining regular dental visits, you will improve your oral health, decrease your anxiety and brighten your
smile for years to come.
Call 1-888-BRIGHT NOW or visit brightnow.com to make your appointment!

HAT YAO, Thailand — A nine-person
team from U.S. Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalion (NMCB) 40 recently par-
ticipated in the Cooperation Afloat Read-
iness and Training exercise (CARAT)
2012.
Working in conjunction with their Thai
counterparts, the NMCB 40 personnel
tested their knowledge in a mock disaster
designed to improve key local infrastruc-
ture, preparing them for real world hu-
manitarian assistance and disaster relief
missions.
The Seabees workedonimmediate debris
removal in order to clear the way for new
and existing roadways, and they surveyed
buildings to determine whether they were
structurally sound enough to use as tem-
porary medical facilities.
Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Jeremy
Brown helped train medical personnel
from both the U.S. Coast Guard and the
Thai medical team, demonstrating the
skills necessary to recover and treat the
injured.
“Despite advances in our combat life-
saving techniques since World War I and
World War II, it’s refreshing to see that all
docs around the world are on the same
page, using the basics with one goal in
mind, with one fight — to save lives and
get troops back on the battlefield,” said
Brown.
When asked about the purpose of the
exercise, Steelworker 1st Class Angel Cano
said, “It’s important to understand the way
other foreign military construction forces
work. In order to be efficient in the face
of adversity, you must understand how
they work, and work side by side with them
to build stronger interoperability.”
NMCB40 is nowon its way back to Port
Hueneme from deployments in Okinawa,
Sasebo and Yokosuka, Japan, Guam, Ko-
rea, the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand,
Timor Leste, Diego Garcia and Palau.

Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 5 spoke to
middle school students June 8 during Fre-
mont Intermediate School Career Day in
Oxnard.
“I invited over 40 presenters from dif-
ferent services in the community to come
and speak to my students,” said Yvette
Stein, assistant principal of the school,
which has an enrollment of 1,200.
The students were split into three ses-
sions throughout the day.
“I believe that my students need to see
positive role models —individuals [whose]
hard work and dedication, determination
and perseverance got them to where they
are today,” Stein said.
Seabees were among the many present-
ers talking to the children.
“I had a good time,”said Lt. j.g. Lauren
Bueler, assigned to Alfa Company. “It was
really rewarding to see their faces, see them
get excited about what we do, teach them
our job and get them excited about a ca-
reer past high school.”
Seabees talked about previous deploy-
ments and described their careers. The
presentation highlighted different job op-
portunities and benefits that are available
in the Navy.
“I appreciate the support,” Stein said.
“I believe the military is important no mat-
ter what branch you are in. I’mvery grate-
ful that you all came out to show support
to our students and our youth in this com-
munity. Thank you.”

Story by NMCB 3 Public Affairs
TAKORADI, Ghana—ThirteenSeabees
fromNaval Mobile ConstructionBattalion
(NMCB) 3 playeda soccer game last month
with the local Takoradi soccer club in an
effort to improve Ghanaian-U.S. relations.
The Seabees deployed to Ghana last
month to complete a variety of humanitar-
ianandcivic assistance constructionprojects
in the region and the surrounding African
countries of Togo and Benin.
The June 17 game was advertised on the
local radio station and approximately 150
soccer fans bravedthe raintowatchthe two
teams play.
“The sportsmanship of the people was
unbelievable,”saidChief Steelworker Mark
Pembleton, the detachment officer incharge.
“The people of Ghana welcomed us into
their community andmost evencheeredfor
our team.”
The game was planned by Pembleton in
order tofurther improve local-U.S. relations,
andit was arrangedby JohnCarol, the doc-
tor at the Ghanaian Naval Clinic that the
Seabees were renovating as a part of their
humanitarian construction support.
After a few phone calls from Carol, the
Seabees had a game set up with the local
soccer club for Sunday.
Although the Seabees had only three
members who had ever played soccer, after
a quick crash course on the fundamentals,
they were ready for the game.
“It was very intimidating toplay anorga-
nized team, especially one from a culture
that values the sport so much,”said Builder
Constructionman Zavier Favila.
Althoughthe Seabees thought the contest
would end in a rout, they managed to stay
toe-to-toe with the Ghanaians for 90 min-
utes in the rain-drenched field. The match
ended with a 4-4 tie.
Following the game that forged relation-
ships, the Seabees invited all the players to
a party withrefreshments, pictures andcon-
versation. The twosides, after all, have been
teammates ina bigger project: assuring that
the Ghanianmedical facilityreceivedmuch-
needed improvements.
“You guys saved the clinic. This project
has been needed for 10 years,” Carol said.
“We wouldnot have survivedwiththe shape
the clinic was in. You guys have a great
reputation and we are grateful to have you
here.”

NMCB 5
Convoy security element (CSE) Seabees
assigned to Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 5 completed an urban
skills training class at Naval Base Ventura
County, Point Mugu, last month.
CSE has been training throughout
homeport to increase proficiency in weap-
ons, tactics and convoys, all of which will
be used by NMCB 5 to help accomplish
future missions.
“I spent about 10 months in Afghani-
stan. The majority of the time I was in an
urban environment, we would go out and
build forward operating bases for the
Army,”said Steelworker 2nd Class Joseph
Valence, the 31st Seabee Readiness Group
lead instructor for the training.
The class spans 10 days. Seabees fire on
a small arms range, practice magazine
drills and are taught different tactical
movements that will help them conduct
future operations in the field. Once the
initial drills are completed, the trainees
learn more advanced techniques at Point
Mugu’s Home Station Training Lanes
(HSTL).
“Ultimately we want everybody to be
mission-ready and capable to deploy into
combat areas and safely come back with
everybody,” Valence said.
At the HSTL, Seabees learn to work as
a team to clear buildings and eliminate
hostile threats. They’re armed with rifles,
pistols and full battle gear with face
masks.
Valence and his teamtaught the Seabees
howto effectively communicate with each
other and focus on goals as one unit.
“It’s always nice to have a certain team
who has been really cohesive and has been
training with each other,” said Builder
Constructionman Ethan Strey, assigned
to NMCB 5’s CSE.
“The course is great and it’s been a great
learning experience,”he added. “CSE has
been awesome, it’s given me a lot of op-
portunities that I probably wouldn’t have
been able to do if I was in a regular com-
pany.”
Valence said the training can be used
anywhere.
“Deploying to Iraq, Afghanistan or re-
ally wherever you go, there is some sort
of threat,” he said. “Even without the
threat, just knowing urban terrain and
urban environments will definitely
help.”

OKINAWA, Japan — The military ad-
viser to U.S. Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion 40, Gunnery Sgt. Boyde Allen,
was chosen by his peers to receive the
“Gung-Ho”award for his “esprit de corps”
at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, last
month.
FromApril 24 through June 8, Allen at-
tended a U.S. Marine Corps advanced ca-
reer course at Camp Hansen. The class
consisted of E-7s and above fromdifferent
branches of the military, all bringing their
own unique expertise.
The six-week course included physical
fitness training, combat conditioning, fun-
damentals of the Marine Corps planning
process, unit training management and
training in war fighting functions.
Upon completion of the course, Allen
received the ‘”Gung-Ho” award for his
level of motivation, professionalism and
mentorship among his peers.
He alsoreceivedaletter of commendation
fromSgt. Maj. J. N. Calbough, director of
the course, and a physical fitness award.
“It was a great experience because it
forced you to wrap your arms around the
array of scenarios going on in your battle
space to include MEDEVAC requests,
troops in contact, close air support and in-
direct fires,”Allen said. “While playing the
role of the watch officer, it forced you to
make sound and timely decisions amongst
your peers that inthe real worldcouldmean
the difference between your people living
or dying.”

Missile Park, located on NAVAIR
Road next to Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty, Point Mugu, has reopened.
Officials at the base remind visitors
to respect any barricades and safety
signs still at the park, as maintenance
work on some of the displays has not
yet been completed.
The gas station at Naval Base Ven-
tura County, Point Mugu, has re-
opened.
The gas station closed in early April
for state-required environmental up-
grades that were expected to be com-
pleted in early May.
However, a delay in obtaining permits
fromthe County of Ventura put off the
beginning of the upgrades, and the
work ended up being more extensive
than originally planned.
The upgrades are designed to make
sure the gas station runs in both an ef-
ficient and environmentally friendly
way, officials said.
Eight athletes looking to compete
in the 2013 Warrior Games will be
attending a training camp at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Huen-
eme, Thursday, July 12, through
Monday, July 16.
The athletes are in the Navy Safe
Harbor program, which provides
services to active duty and retired
Navy and Coast Guard personnel
who are wounded, ill or injured.
The Warrior Games, held each
year in Colorado Springs, Colo., pit
these athletes against those from the
Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and
Special Operations.
At the training camp, the athletes
will work out in the Aquatics Center
at Port Hueneme and use the bas-
ketball court at the Bee-Hive Gym
and the track and field area outside
it.
On Sunday, July 15, Anacapa
Yacht Club is treating the athletes
to kayaking, sailing and paddle
boarding at Channel Islands Har-
bor.

Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 5 recently
completed Command Post Exercise (CPX)
2 at Naval Base Ventura County.
CPX2, which ended June 14, is designed
to increase the battalion’s readiness in the
field. NMCB 5 will conduct three CPXs
and one Field Training Exercise this home-
port before a scheduled deployment early
next year to Pacific Command.
Seabees trained and reacted to scenar-
ios that included entry control point drills
and dealing with enemy threats. The bat-
talion created forward operating bases and
established successful communications
within the camp.
Since CPX is executed with real equip-
ment, the training helps familiarize new
battalion personnel for future operations
in the field.
“Seabees are hands-on types of people,”
said Lt. j.g. Donald Huls, the CPX 2 of-
ficer in charge. “It’s one thing to read and
talk about it, and it’s another thing to go
out and do it.”
Seabees worked together to set up tents,
operate equipment and establish commu-
nications throughout camp.
“Communications is important because
it allows everyone to be cohesive and be
on the same page. If you’re not commu-
nicating then a lot of things can go wrong,
people can get hurt,” said Information
SystemTechnician 2nd Class Mary Moun-
tain, a Seabee assigned to the NMCB 5
Communication Department.
Seabees go through classes throughout
homeport to learn the different commu-
nications used in the field.
“I feel like if I didn’t have that training
I would have been lost right now with all
the protocol that goes along with every-
thing that we do. We are doing training to
get us ready for the future,” said Steel-
worker Constructionman Brandon Fletch-
er.

Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 5 completed an embark train-
ing exercise at Naval Base Ventura
County last month, learning the correct
protocol to prepare equipment and ve-
hicles for safe transit on an aircraft.
“Embark is important because it’s
how you get to the fight,” explained Lt.
j.g. Aaron Kotlarz, NMCB 5 Embark
officer. “You have to make sure every-
thing is right when you do it here be-
cause if not, you’re not getting on the
plane and not getting to the fight. At-
tention to detail is critically impor-
tant.”
At the 31st Seabee Readiness Group’s
Mount-Out Control Center, the Seabees
prepared equipment that would be
needed in the field or at a deployed lo-
cation for safe transportation.
“In a real-world situation where we
are called upon to deploy the battalion,
we have 48 hours to do it,” said Equip-
ment Operator 1st Class Christopher
Wyeth, NMCB 5 Embark leading pet-
ty officer. “We have all of homeport to
try to get that training to our Seabees.
It’s a battalion effort.”
Wyeth explained that the embark pro-
cess begins in the Alfa Company yard.
Heavy equipment such as vehicles, doz-
ers and graders are dispatched from the
Alfa yard and checked, washed and
controlled before they go anywhere
else.
Each vehicle is then taken to the em-
bark yard where it is weighed and
marked before being placed in priority
order for transport via aircraft.
“You want to know how much the
plane is going to weigh so that you can
fuel it accordingly or that you don’t
overload it,” said Utilitiesman Con-
structionman Reyna Ellington, a mem-
ber of NMCB 5’s embark team. “Each
plane has a certain allowable weight
that it can handle. If you measure it
wrong then it could be too heavy and
cause the plane to crash or not able to
take off.”
Pallets and generators must also be
prepared for embarkation.
NMCB 5 completed the exercise suc-
cessfully.
“Working with the troops is a lot of
fun and seeing the stuff they do is
amazing,” said Kotlarz.
NMCB 5 is preparing for a scheduled
deployment to Pacific Command early
next year.

VR-55
During their June 2012 Drill Weekend,
the Minutemen of Fleet Logistics Support
Squadron (VR) 55, commanded by Cmdr.
Alastair MacGregor, hosted leadership
training for 56 Sea Cadets from the Tri-
dent Patrol Squadron 65, Training Ship
Minutemen, located at Naval Base Ven-
tura County.
Since 1958, the Naval Sea Cadet Corps
has been committed to providing young
men and women between the ages of 13
and 17 an environment that fosters leader-
ship abilities, broadens their horizons
through hands-on training and guides
them to becoming mature young adults.
VR-55’s executive officer, Cmdr. Chris
McAnally, conducted the training in the
command’s spaces, detailing what it means
to be a naval aviator and officer, as well
as the VR-55 mission of Navy Unique
Fleet Essential Support (NUFEA) — al-
ways ready to fly, 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
The cadets were also given a perspective
of Navy fleet life by two of VR-55’s re-
serve pilots and combat veterans, Lt.
Cmdr. Jodi Maroney, a former Marine
Corps CH-53 pilot, and Lt. Cmdr. Matt
Flynn, a former F/A-18 Hornet pilot.
They talked of the intricacies of combat
operations, leadership and duty to coun-
try.
The cadets also actively engaged in a
question-and-answer session with not only
these VR-55 pilots, but also the VR-55
loadmaster, Aircrewman Mechanical 1st
Class Nick Maisonet, as well as four mid-
shipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy.
Maisonet provided valuable information
on the career track of an aircrewman. The
midshipmen, Gene Krampen, Ryan Deck-
er, Greg Duppel and Ethan English, all
of whomare closing in on their final year,
enlightened the cadets on life at the Naval
Academy.
Throughout their visit to VR-55, the
enthusiastic young Sea Cadets were given
a real-world perspective about joining the
ranks of the United States Navy.
VR-55 teaches cadets about life in the Navy
Local teens from the Ben Moreell Bat-
talion of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps at
Naval Base Ventura County recently com-
pleted a 14-day boot camp at Marine
Corps Base, Camp Pendleton.
Cadets Austin Coffin of Port Hueneme,
Skylar Gustavson of Newbury Park and
Justin Gilliland of Hollister, who is spend-
ing his summer in Ventura County, en-
joyed all of the pleasures of boot camp,
including a 5 a.m. reveille, marching ev-
erywhere, pushups, making a bed Navy-
style, more pushups and a military Pass
in Review.
The Sea Cadet Corps boot camp was
especially designed and conducted by
Navy Recruit Division commanders and
was staffed by active duty Sailors and Ma-
rines as well as reserve troops and civilian
adult volunteers. Activities included fire-
fighting, swim qualifications, physical
training, personnel inspections and drill
competitions.
The Sea Cadets organization is open to
all U.S. citizens ages 10 to 18 who are in-
terested in learning more about the Navy
and other sea services.

This year’s Naval Base Ventura County Junior Baseball’s 6U
(ages 6 and under) All-Star Team is the first to enter the Pony
League-sanctioned All-Star tournament, let alone advance in
it. The players come from both civilian and military families.
The coaches, all civilians, have been coaching in this league
for more than 15 years combined. The players came from
the five teams in the Farm Division — the Angels, Dodgers,
Lugnuts, Rays and Red Sox. Shown are, bottom row from left,
Ryan Marriner, Eric Jones, Hunter Cervantes, Nathaniel Lopez,
Ricardo Chavez and Isaiah Alcantar; middle row from left,
Jackson Walea, Noah Aguiar, Jacob Campos, Damien Valdez,
Gavin Samora and Jacob Simpson; and top row, from left,
Coach Andy Aguiar, Coach Jesse Campos and Manager Jorge
Cervantes.
THEY’RE HITS ON BASE
Kim Kreiner, a fitness instructor
and personal trainer at the Bee-Fit
Health and Wellness Center at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) Port
Hueneme, won’t be going to the
Olympics this year.
But one of the Navy’s Wounded
Warriors who trained at NBVC ear-
lier this year will be competing in the
Paralympic Games in London. Lt.
Brad Snyder, who worked out in the
Aquatics Center at Port Hueneme
during the March 16-19 Wounded
Warrior training camp, will swim for
gold during the paralympic competi-
tions Aug. 29 through Sept. 9.
Snyder was blinded by an impro-
vised explosive device last September
while serving in Afghanistan.
Kreiner, a two-time Olympian, at-
tended the track and field trials in
Eugene, Ore., earlier this month in
an attempt to earn a spot as a javelin
thrower. She competed in the 2004
and 2008 Olympic Games but did not
make it to the finals this year.
Registration is now open for the 2012
Wounded Warrior Half-Marathon,
scheduled for Sept. 15 at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC), Point
Mugu.
The deadline to register on active.
com is Aug. 31.
The half-marathon starts at 8 a.m.
at the Point Mugu Gym.
Also taking place that morning will
be a 5K run and a one-mile run in for-
mation for military commands, al-
though civilians are welcome to run as
well.
Cost for the half-marathon is $50 for
civilians and $35 for members of the
military.
The 5K is $25 for civilians and $15
for the military, and the mile is $15 for
civilians and $10 for the military.
This event, which has grown each
year since it began in 2010, supports
not only the Wounded Warrior training
camps held at NBVC but also adaptive
sports equipment on base, including a
beach bike that allows people with dis-
abilities to get to the ocean, an adap-
tive golf cart and a pool lift at Port
Hueneme.

The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Destiny Lockwood, who will be an
eighth grader at E.O. Green Junior High
School in Oxnard this fall and is a member
of the Military Teens Club at the school,
originally wrote this for a school assign-
ment and later read it to the club.
“Her poignant description is an impor-
tant reminder about the challenges of
some of our biggest military heroes —our
military kids,”said Lori Steinhauer, coor-
dinator of the Military Teens Club, which
is sponsored by the Fleet & Family Sup-
port Center.
Destiny is the daughter of Denise and
SW1 (SCW) Keith Lockwood, who is in
the Training Department of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 5.
By Destiny Lockwood
Being military is very hard. It’s hard on
the children and the spouses. Sometimes
the service member will have to deploy
somewhere. There are lots of activities to
keep the children busy while mom or dad
is away.
Children with parents in the military can
experience some of the effects that chil-
dren with divorced parents have. Children
at home with momor dad worry that that
parent will leave too! If a spouse is frus-
trated the children will feel like it is their
fault. Some children feel that the service
member doesn’t love himor her when they
go on deployment. When children start to
feel like this the parent should tell them
that they are loved. Parents should never
lie to their children to hide them from the
dangers that their parent will face.
When it comes to sharing feelings chil-
dren lack the vocabulary to express how
they feel. The service member should show
the children where they are deploying.
They may feel more relaxed about the de-
ployment if they know what their parent
is doing there. Military children move six
to nine times while growing up. They
carry a lot of responsibilities. Military
children have to worry about things that
most kids will never know. There are over
1.7 million military children in the
world.
Although being military spouses and
children is hard, you learn to stick to-
gether. You know that your parent is do-
ing his or her part in the world.

parent is doing his or

The Fleet & Family Support Center
provides Information and Referral (I &
R) to all service members and their fam-
ilies.
I & R links people and services, provid-
ing information about a broad range of
community services people might not
otherwise know about. This information
can enrich lives by opening doors and
paving the way into the community service
system.
Some people may not be obtaining the
service they need, not because they do
not know about it or because it doesn’t
exist, but because they are unable to state
their case properly. When this happens,
the person needs an advocate, someone
who will state the case clearly and press
the service system into working as it
should. I&R specialists can provide that
advocacy.
By calling an I&R specialist with your
questions, you’ll save a lot of time rather
than trying to track down information
yourself. We have answers to many of your
questions at our fingertips.
We provide information and referral for
the following:
• Personal Financial Management pro-
gram (PFM)
• FFSC clinical counseling services
• Deployment support
• Transition Assistance Management
Program (TAMP)
• Family Advocacy Program (FAP)
• Suicide and crisis intervention
• New Parent Support program
(NPS)
• Family Employment Readiness Pro-
gram (FERP)
• Relocation Assistance Program
(RAP)
• Sexual Assault Prevention Response
(SAPR)
• Ombudsman program
• Support groups
• Life skills and other classes
• Recreation
• Child care
• Schools, libraries, and other services
We are here to assist with all your needs
and to provide Information & Referral to
active-duty military, drilling reservists and
military retirees and their families.
Just contact FFSC at (805) 982-5037
and ask for an I&R specialist, or call our
24-hour toll free number at (866) 923-6478
to make an appointment. You can also
contact me directly at (805) 982-5331.

Repeat visitors, too, appreciate the is-
land’s qualities.
Sarah Terry, 15, Smith’s goddaughter,
has been coming to the island since she
was 4.
“I like tidepooling,”said the Bakersfield
resident. “And I like going to the beaches.
This is always my favorite part of summer
vacation.”
This year’s event had more activities
than in the past, and Strader credited Gil-
leylen for organizing the event. This is the
chief’s third go-around with Family Week-
end —and his last. He transfers to one of
the Seabee battalions later this year.
“I’m going to miss the people,” he says.
“It’s like a family out here.”
MWR also received high praise for the
barbecue and spaghetti feed and for or-
ganizing the sports activities.
“We wanted to make sure the kids slept
well at night,” Strader said.
He was speaking to an exhausted
adult.

And while the Declaration would live
on — the following day would mark 236
years since its signing — five of the men
whose signature it carries would be cap-
tured, tortured and killed during the
Revolutionary War. Twelve had their
homes ransacked and burned, and two
lost sons in the war.
“As I stand here before you today,”
he said, “I see men and women who are
inheritors of that call to defend home
and hearth, nation and ideals, indepen-
dence and freedom.”
He said he was humbled to be in the
presence of so many veterans and their
families, and he praised them for up-
holding the Founding Fathers’ legacy.
He also praised the Soldiers, Sailors,
Airmen and Marines who are current-
ly deployed, and he received a heartfelt,
spontaneous burst of applause when he
announced that Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 40 was on its way
home.
Sasek had the opportunity to shake
hands and chat with the Cypress Place
residents who are veterans, including
Bill Gamble, a radioman in the Navy
from 1940 to 1946, and Gary Faber, an
Army medic who arrived in Normandy
the day after the invasion.
The tributes weren’t lost on the vet-
erans.
“This is a nice thing,” Faber said,
looking at the gathered audience.
tor of the Navy Lodge program, had high
praise for the staff.
“It’s all about the work you guys do
every day,” he said. “I’ve been talking to
the guests, and they love it here at NBVC.
It’s big enough they can do everything
and small enough to feel like a commu-
nity. You make them feel welcome.”
The Navy Lodge at Port Hueneme has
47 guest rooms.
The Carlson Award is named for Ed-
ward E. Carlson, who served during
World War II as a supply officer and
eventually went on to become the chair-
man of Westin hotels. Carlson served as
a member of the Secretary of the Navy’s
advisory committee, and his advice was
critical to the formation of the Navy
Lodge program.

This is the time of year when snake
sightings increase at Naval Base Ventura
County. Though uncommon, rattlesnake
bites do occur.
The first thing to do if bitten is to stay
calm. Generally, the most serious effect
of a rattlesnake bite to an adult is local
tissue damage, which needs to be treat-
ed.
Get to a doctor as soon as possible, but
stay calm. Frenetic, high-speed driving
places the victim at greater risk of an ac-
cident and increased heart rate. If the doc-
tor is more than 30 minutes away, elevate
the bite and then try to get to the doctor
as quickly as possible.
If someone you’re with is bitten by a
poisonous snake, remove constricting
items such as rings or other jewelry that
could cut off blood flow if the bite area
swells. Immobilize the bitten area and
transport the victimto a hospital as quick-
ly as possible.
If it will take several hours before you
can transport the victim, do the follow-
ing:
• Gently rinse the bitten area with soap
and water, then pat or air dry.
• Wrap a wide constriction bandage (not
a tourniquet) two to four inches upstream
of the bitten area — if it’s on an extrem-
ity — so long as the pressure is not too
tight. One or two fingers should be able
to slide under the band. The goal is to
slow surface blood flow, not stop arterial
blood flow. Stopping blood flowto a limb
will result in the loss of the limb.
Never cut and suction the bite area or
use a venom extractor, and never apply
ice or cooling packs to the area as these
may result in greater harm.
