Question: The RV Park that was under con-
struction at Port Hueneme has been idle for
months now. When will work start, and when will
we be able to use that beautiful new facility? I
asked before and was told there was a problem
with the contract.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry and for
giving me a chance to address your concerns.
The contractor who was working on the RV Park
at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme,
went out of business, leaving the project incom-
plete. It took some time, but as of last week, the
new contract has been awarded, and we are
just waiting on the new contractor to submit the
paperwork necessary to get started.
We expect that the needed work will take
approximately 120 days to complete, giving us
a nice, new RV Park in January or February.
We appreciate everyone’s patience while we’ve
worked around this unfortunate delay.
I also appreciate the great feedback you’ve all
provided through this Ask the Captain forum, my
CO’s Suggestion Box online at http://cnic.navy.
mil/ventura/index.htm and on Facebook at www.
facebook.com/NavalBaseVenturaCounty. We’ve
been able to clear up confusion, correct errors
and even discuss policy changes, all based on
your feedback.
Oh, and by the way, a couple of weeks ago,
a submitter asked about extending hours at the
Navy Exchange, and although we can’t extend
the hours year-round, the Exchange manager has
decided to keep the NEX open until 8 p.m. for the
holiday season, beginning Oct. 1. That’s great
news!
When will the RV Park at NBVC Port Hueneme be fnished? w

The Naval Facilities Engineering and
Expeditionary Warfare Center (NAVFAC
EXWC) will be established in a Sept. 20
ceremony, joining two longstanding Naval
Facilities Engineering Command (NAV-
FAC) specialty centers.
The Naval Facilities Expeditionary Lo-
gistics Center (NAVFACELCor NFELC)
and Naval Facilities Engineering Service
Center (NAVFACESC) are consolidating
to provide a single touchpoint responsible
for all NAVFAC engineering and expedi-
tionary specialty center functions under
one command.
The newcommand will be comprised of
more than 1,400 men and women, provid-
ing specialized facilities engineering, tech-
nology solutions andlife-cycle management
of expeditionary equipment to the Navy,
Marine Corps, federal agencies and other
supported commands.
“The consolidation is intended to reduce
overhead costs to free up resources needed
to sustain our nation’s force structure, cre-
ate future combat capabilities and improve
our missionsupport toour supportedcom-
manders,” said Capt. Brant D. Pickrell,
NAVFAC EXWC commanding officer.
This organizational restructuring will
result in a number of benefits to NAVFAC,
including estimated savings of $3 million
annually from fiscal year 2013 (FY13) to
FY17, enhancements to NAVFAC spe-
cialty center governance and improved
business line alignment.
“The new command combines extraor-
dinary facilities engineering and technol-
ogy transfer expertise with first-rate expe-
ditionary logistics support to the
warfighter, bringing greater efficiencies to
this vital role in the NAVFAC enterprise.”
explained Pickrell.
The consolidation is part of NAVFAC’s
ongoing reviewof all its operations follow-
ing the Secretary of Defense’s 2010 order
to all the military services to take a “hard,
unsparing look” at how they are staffed,
organized and operated.

Windshield decals, motorcycle gear and
training opportunities for retiring Navy
personnel were among the many topics
discussed Wednesday, Sept. 12, as Rear
Adm. Dixon Smith, commander of Navy
Region Southwest, led a question-and-
answer session at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Point Mugu.
Smith also formally presented base of-
ficials with two awards that had been pre-
viously announced: the 2011 Chief of
Naval Operations (CNO) Safety Award
for bases in the large non-industrial cat-
egory, and an environmental award for
restoring seabirds on San Nicolas Island
by capturing and removing all the island’s
feral cats.
Smith said the safety award was a trib-
ute to everyone on base.
“Safety is an all-hands effort,” he said.
“If you don’t focus on safety, accidents
happen.”
He presented the award to Safety Of-
ficer George Egeler, who stood next to the
theater stage with nine other members of
the safety office.
Smith gave the second award to Dan
Shide, the installation environmental pro-
gram director, commenting that the feral
cat removal project was just one of many
environmental success stories at the base,

Seabees from the Naval Construction
Training Center (NCTC) at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme
hosted a facility tour last month for near-
ly 30 distinguished guests fromthroughout
the county.
The tour is part of a series of “Friends
of NBVC” tours organized by base com-
mand for local community, government,
lawenforcement and school leaders aimed
at familiarizing visitors with NBVC’s mis-
sion and facility capabilities.
The NCTCtour started off with a brief-
ing from Cmdr. Scott Loeschke, com-
manding officer of NCTC Port Huen-
eme.
“We build Seabees,”Loeschke said. “We
take that really to heart.”
The school also trains Air Force stu-
dents.
About 100 active duty Navy and Air
Force members staff NCTC, training ap-
proximately 1,300 Seabees a year in basic
and journeyman skills. Anewbasic course
starts almost weekly with 12 to 24 stu-
dents.
The tour began with an in-depth look
at the construction mechanic rate training.
Air Force trainees huddled around a die-
sel engine in the first room, and full-sized
pickuptruckbodies filledanother, prompt-
ing a visitor to lean over and ask a fellow
tour group member whether the Seabees
learned anything other than mechanic
skills at Port Hueneme.

In a ceremony steeped in 119 years of
Navy tradition and capped by a flyover of
an E-2C Hawkeye, 56 Sailors from Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) took part
in a pinning ceremony Friday, Sept. 14, that
gave them the rank of chief petty officer
— “the backbone of the Navy.”
In addition, two Air Force technical ser-
geants were promoted to master sergeants
during the ceremony.
All over the world — on aircraft carriers
and on guided-missile cruisers, at Camp
Lemonnier in Djibouti and in the Office
of Naval Intelligence — similar pinning
ceremonies took place, with thousands be-
ing promoted that day after undergoing six
weeks of rigorous training.
Several hundred people attended the
ceremony at the NBVC Port Hueneme pa-
rade grounds, including a grandmother in
her 80s who flew in from Hawaii and a
couple who secretly flew in from Chicago
to surprise their youngest son.
Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding of-
ficer of NBVC, spoke as the ceremony host
and congratulated the soon-to-be chiefs,
whose ranks, he said, are the experts of the
Navy and the ones who get things done.
“They simply make it happen,” he said.
The guest speaker, Rear Adm. Paul Sohl,
the new commanding officer of Naval Air
Warfare Center Weapons Division, opened
his remarks with a moment of silence for
the four Americans — including two former
Navy SEALs — killed a few days earlier in
Libya.
In his speech, he offered four suggestions
for the new chiefs: Set the tone, know your
Sailors, be prepared and lead by example.
“The view is different from out in front,”
he told them.
Chief Aviation Electronics Technician
Matthew Flood explained to the audience
the symbolism of the fouled anchor, the
emblem of the rate of chief petty officer
that bears the initials USN. While most
think of USN as “United States Navy,”
chiefs, he said, think of the “U” as meaning
unity, the “S” as meaning service and the
“N” as meaning navigation.
Then, following longstanding tradition,
the chiefs select were pinned by those they
had chosen for the honor — sometimes a
son or daughter, sometimes a spouse, some-
times a close friend.
Chief Builder Lorin Asada chose his
grandmother, Joy Teramoto, who had
flown in from Hawaii.
Chief Construction Mechanic Tim Plum-
mer was shocked when the master of cer-
emonies, Master Chief Utilitiesman Jamye
Rainwater, announced that Plummer’s par-
ents, Jerry and Karen Parker of Chicago,
would be doing the honors. He had no idea
they’d be at the ceremony.
“He said on the phone he wanted us to
come, but we were already planning a trip
out in December,” Jerry Parker explained
later. “Then his wife called and said he’d
told her several more times that he wanted
us here, and after that, we decided we’d get
out here one way or another.”
After the 58 had been pinned and the
Sailors officially greeted as “Chief” by
NBVC Command Master Chief Thomas
Cyr, Chief Aviation Support Equipment
Technician Keith Combs read “The Chief
Petty Officer’s Creed,” which stresses the
many responsibilities and privileges that
go with the rank.
“‘Ask the Chief’ is a household phrase
in and out of the Navy,” he read.
“You are now the chief.”

It’s no secret that school budgets are
getting hit hard and that many cuts have
been and will continue to be made. As
parents, if there were an easy way to
ensure additional funding would come
into your child’s school, you all would
be willing to take part, right?
Every fall, certain school districts will
send home Federal Survey Cards. In
Ventura County, the survey cards are
sent home with students in the Ocean
View School District, Hueneme Ele-
mentary School District and Pleasant
Valley School District.
These cards are completed by the par-
ents, returned to school and counted.
Congress grants additional funding to
school districts based on the number
of valid and completed cards received.
This funding can go toward various
programs, services and equipment the
school may need.
The cards come from Impact Aid.
This program is designed to directly
reimburse public school districts for the
loss of traditional revenue sources due
to parents living or working on tax-ex-
empt federal property. Since the prop-
erty the parents live or work on is not
taxed, the local schools are not receiv-
ing that funding they would otherwise
get.
Additionally, the Soldiers and Sailors
Civil Relief Act exempts military per-
sonnel from paying certain personal
property taxes and state income taxes.
Again, this means less revenue for local
schools.
Does this mean that schools with
military children get extra money for
educating these children? No, it simply
means they get reimbursed for funding
they’re not getting from federal and
state tax funds.
It is important that parents complete
and return the forms. Districts often
report that they don’t receive all of the
Federal Survey Cards, which results in
a loss of vital revenue. The school dis-
tricts’ Impact Aid disbursement is cal-
culated by the number of federally con-
nected students. That includes students
who have a parent in the U.S. military,
are Native American, live on federal
property or have a parent who works
on federal property.
In addition to regular Basic Support
payments, some school districts are
eligible for additional funding through
Heavily Impacted District Payments. A
district is eligible for these payments if
it is located on a military installation
or has a combination of high enroll-
ment of federally connected students,
high tax rates and low per-pupil reve-
nues.
Based on the number of Department
of Defense or federally connected stu-
dents, additional grants are sometimes
available for school districts. Last
school year, Ocean View School District
and Hueneme Elementary School Dis-
trict were awarded grants. Both school
districts used the grants to add to their
classroom technology. These grants
would not have been available to these
school districts had parents not com-
pleted their survey cards.
The Federal Survey Card takes very
little time to complete. The information
will not be used for any reason other
than Impact Aid. For the gain that the
schools will receive, every parent can
take a few minutes to complete the
cards.
In the current school funding climate,
every dollar and every cent count.
Therefore, every Federal Survey Card
counts as well.

The time has come to write my last ar-
ticle for The Lighthouse. I am leaving
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 40 — along with everyone else,
as we are being decommissioned. As a
result, I would like to use this article as an
opportunity to say farewell to those with
whom I have served over the last three
years.
NMCB40 was my first command in the
Navy, and it has been a wonderful intro-
duction. Why?
First are the great examples of leader-
ship.
Leadership is an interesting thing, be-
cause although there is rank, it is not rank
that makes a leader. Leadership is ulti-
mately the ability to influence people to-
ward mission accomplishment as well as
overall excellence. It is based on a credibil-
ity that has been earned through demon-
strating competency and character. And
make no mistake about it, competency is
not enough. People ultimately do not fol-
low those they do not trust, which is why
character and integrity are so essential to
great leadership.
Before leaving chaplaincy school, one
of our instructors emphasized the impor-
tance of trustworthiness among leadership
by challenging us with this question: “If
you lost rank for a day, would people still
follow you?” If the answer is no, he said,
there is likely a competency deficit (they
don’t think you knowwhat you are doing)
or a character deficit (they don’t trust
you). Admittedly, this is a very high stan-
dard, but I highlight it because I have
known some leaders, both above and be-
low me in rank, whom I would follow if
we all lost rank for a day. I want to thank
those leaders. I will take your examples
with me and build off them in the fu-
ture.
Second are some incredible examples of
perseverance.
Only those whose families have been
torn apart by deployments know the true
cost of deployments. It is wonderful to
come back together, but it is not easy.
Spouses have changed, roles have changed,
children have grown, emotional distance
occupies space in the relationship where
it previously did not, and sometimes there
has been a lack of faithfulness to one de-
gree or another. These are very real and
difficult obstacles that are not uncommon
to families that must deal with deploy-
ments. Yet time and again, I have watched
couples facing these challenges (andmore!)
rebuild their relationships to a place that
in many cases is actually better than what
they had before.
A marriage book I recently read stated
that most couples who consider divorce
but decide against it will, within five years,
get to a place where they are both very
glad they decided to stay together. For
most couples, it happens much sooner
than five years.
It has been my privilege to encourage
couples to persevere in their relationship
and get their families back to a fun and
stable place. I have been truly blessed to
see this perseverance up close and per-
sonal in the lives of the families in 40. It
is also necessary to give a lot of credit to
the Fleet &Family Support Center, whose
skilled counselors have taken incredible
care of our troops — and of me! Thanks,
FFSC!
Third are the incredible friendships.
Although 40 is coming to an end, the
friendships I have made throughout this
command will remain intact for many
years to come.
Those in a battalion know that you get
to know people best when you are sweat-
ing to death on a Field Training Exercise,
or freezing to death in Afghanistan, or
hunkering down for a typhoon projected
to hit Okinawa or a detachment site some-
where. The many shared and sometimes
intense experiences have created deep
bonds that will last the test of time, despite
very diverse backgrounds.
It has been a rich experience to get to
knowthe men and women who have made
up NMCB 40 for the last three years. I
want to say thank you for richly blessing
my life through your leadership (even
many of you junior troops!), through your
examples of perseverance and through the
friendships you have offered. My prayer
is for your continued success. Thank you,
and God bless.

Volunteers needed for Oct. 13-14 event
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse editor
The recent Feds Feed Families food drive
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
brought in3,660pounds of foodtothe Ven-
tura County food bank, but the work didn’t
stop there.
Three volunteers fromthe base spent sev-
eral hours at Food Share Friday, Sept. 14,
helping sort the hundreds of donated boxes
and cans.
“It’s awin-winwhenthe Navy’s here,”said
RobJankowski, the rescue foodsort supervi-
sor for Food Share.
Religious Programming Specialist 2nd
Class Royce Jones organized the volunteer
opportunity, whichshesaidis oneof themost
efficient and effective projects around.
“Each month, 74,500 people use what
Food Share collects,”she said as she looked
over boxes and cans for dents and checked
the expiration dates.
Lt. j.g. Daniel Monteithof the Naval Sup-
ply Fleet Logistics Center Southwest at
NBVCPoint Mugu and Culinary Specialist
2nd Class Jason Atanacio, assigned to the
NBVCPort Huenemebarracks, alsochecked
dates and packaged the food for distribu-
tion.
Volunteering is nothing new for Monte-
ith.
“This is just like beinghome,”saidthe Vir-
ginia Beach, Va., native. “When I was grow-
ing up, if we weren’t mowing somebody’s
lawn, we were doing a service project.”
Atanacio said he also enjoys volunteer-
ing.
“I like tohelppeople, especiallythose who
need food right now,”he said.
Feds Feed Families is a direct response to
the UnitedWe Serve Act signedbyPresident
Barack Obama in 2009, calling upon all
Americans tocontribute tothe nation’s eco-
nomic recoverybyservingintheir communi-
ties.
This year, the Defense Department set a
Feds Feed Families goal of 1.5 million
pounds. Numbers are still being tallied.
Food drive is only the beginning

NMCRS
“Those who can, do. Those who can do
more, volunteer.” — Author unknown
Since its beginning in 1904, the Navy-
Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS)
has relied on volunteers to achieve its
goal of helping Sailors and Marines meet
unforeseen financial emergencies and
manage their resources.
In fact, since it was founded, NMCRS
has seen its volunteer roster expand from
19 to more than 3,500, both ashore and
afloat — a jump reflecting the increased
demand for the Society’s services.
Who can volunteer with NMCRS? The
Society’s team of volunteers includes ac-
tive duty and retired military personnel,
spouses and civilians who have at least
one common goal in mind: helping our
military.
If you think volunteering for NMCRS
involves only stuffing envelopes and an-
swering phones, you couldn’t be more
mistaken! The Society provides oppor-
tunities in management training, super-
visory experience, office experience, com-
puter skills, financial casework and
marketing —all while serving the military
community. Volunteers are provided with
the tools and training to do a job that
fulfills their desire to serve by helping
others.
NMCRS coordinates its mission with
the volunteer’s skill set so the volunteers
reach their own goals, whether it’s build-
ing another skill for their résumé, gaining
the confidence needed for a future job
interview, doing something of value or
making a difference in the lives of our
Sailors and Marines.
Volunteering is emotionally fulfilling
in a way that very few jobs are. The So-
ciety has adopted the notion of working
to live. I often wonder if I would enjoy
my volunteer endeavors as much if I ac-
tually got paid to do them. For me, it has
always been about what I give and not
what I receive.
So why should you volunteer? Megan
Stiles, chair of volunteers for the NMCRS
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC),
says it best:
“Volunteering for NMCRS is immea-
surably rewarding.
“Personally, knowing you helped con-
tribute to the welfare, values and dignity
of an individual or family by empowering
them to become financially self-sufficient
through education and budget counseling
is extremely gratifying.
“Professionally, you can choose to be
challenged by adopting a new educa-
tional or career skill set or sharpening
already-existing ones. And, as at the heart
of every community, new relationships
and understandings are forged, while ex-
isting ones are strengthened.
“Each volunteer seeks out NMCRS for
their own reason, but encouraging them
to stay is the meaningful and positive
impact volunteering has on their lives and
the lives of others.”
Volunteers are backbone of Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society
Individuals interested in finding out
more about volunteer opportunities at
the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society
at Naval Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme, are invited to an open house
and chili tasting Friday, Oct. 26, from 11
a.m. to 1 p.m. Meet volunteers and vote
for your favorite chili made by NMCRS
volunteers. Children are welcome and
are encouraged to wear their Halloween
costumes. Call 982-4409 for more

Hunting rules outlined
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
Ramona Pagel knows that if
Title IX hadn’t become law 40
years ago, she would not have
been spending Aug. 28 talking
about being a four-time Olym-
pian.
The manager of the Bee-Fit
Health and Wellness Center at
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme was the
guest speaker for Women’s
Equality Day, which was cele-
brated with a luncheon at the
Bard Mansion presented by the
NBVC Federal Women’s Pro-
gram and the Southern Cali-
fornia Gold Coast Federally
Employed Women.
Pagel was in sixth grade when
President RichardNixonsigned
Title IX, which outlawed sex-
ual discrimination in any edu-
cational program or activity
receiving federal money. That
meant girls and women had to
have equal access to public
school sports programs offered
to boys and men.
At the time, Title IX meant
nothing Pagel, who described
herself as a shy little girl who
was short on confidence but big
on energy. She loved to run and
jump hurdles — and she usu-
ally beat out the boys in her
gym class.
But when she got to high
school and found out there was
a boys track team but no girls
track team, she didn’t think
that was fair. Oblivious to Title
IX, she and some friends
marched in to speak with
school officials, and it wasn’t
long before the school had a
girls track team and a female
coach.
“Can you see Title IX in the
background?” she asks today.
Girls track opened new
worlds for the athletic teenager.
With practice — “Thank God
they didn’t have film back
then,” she says with a laugh
—she met a challenge to throw
a 10-pound shot 25 feet, learn-
ing afterwards that girls were
supposed to throw only an 8-
pound shot.
“I had fun being part of a
team,” she says. “Gradually,
this shy little girl started to gain
some confidence.”
In her sophomore year, she
was voted Most Improved
Player in track and field, but
she still hadn’t tried the dis-
cus.
“The school thought it was
too dangerous,” she says.
By her senior year, that had
changed, and Pagel became, as
she describes it, “pretty profi-
cient” at the sport.
She attended Long Beach
State and made the All-Amer-
ican team in shot put, but she
fell short of making the 1980
Olympics. She would go on to
compete in the 1984, 1988,
1992 and 1996 Olympics, and
she set the American record in
shot put in 1988 — a record
that still holds to this day.
Title IXdidn’t fix everything,
Pagel says, and her interna-
tional travels have made her
realize how some countries are
miles ahead of the United
States in this area. She remem-
bers going to a banquet in
Czechoslovakia where a female
shot putter was being hon-
ored.
“She was revered in her coun-
try,” Pagel recalls. “That af-
fected me as to how we view
women and what women do.”
There are still salary discrep-
ancies in the coaching ranks,
and only 18.6 percent of col-
lege athletic directors are wom-
en.
Some blame Title IXfor col-
leges having to drop men’s pro-
grams due to lack of funds —
money, they say, that would be
available if women’s programs
weren’t offered.
And there’s still ignorance.
Less than a decade ago Pagel
was asked to leave a gym be-
cause she was a woman. She
left — and she still cringes at
the memory.
“We still fight discrimina-
tion,” she says, “and we still
deal with how we react to it.”
But the benefits of Title IX
continue to be reaped — in
girls’ participation in sports, in
girls’ athletic scholarships and,
this year, in Olympic medals.
For the first time, American
women brought home more
medals —including GoldMed-
als — than the men did from
the Summer Olympic Games
in London.
Pagel believes that shows
what can happen when oppor-
tunity presents itself.
“We need to look at the spir-
it of the law and make sure we
have the opportunity for all,
regardless if male or female,”
she says. “But sometimes we
have to forge our own way and
make the opportunity.”

31st SRG
Seabees from Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalion (NMCB) 40 said goodbye
to their command in an official decom-
missioning ceremony Wednesday, Sept. 12,
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Port Hueneme.
NMCBs 3, 4 and 5, the 31st Seabee
Readiness Group (31st SRG) and Under-
water Construction Team2 marched onto
the parade ground in formation in front
of a throng of guests that included prior
NMCB 40 commanding officers, former
members of the battalion — including
four men who were at the 1966 commis-
sioning —local military and civilian lead-
ers, friends and family members.
If anyone who came to the ceremony
was under the impression they were saying
goodbye and burying NMCB40, they had
another thing coming.
“I got some great advice when we were
planning today’s ceremony from one of
my senior chiefs,” said Cmdr. Timothy
DeWitt, NMCB40’s current and last com-
manding officer. “He said, ‘Sir, please
don’t make this a eulogy.’ And I thought
that was great advice. Today is a celebra-
tion. We will always be Forever 40.”
DeWitt talked about how decommis-
sioning a battalion is a lot different than
decommissioning a ship.
“It’s sad to see a ship be decommis-
sioned because after the ceremony a ship
is never seen again,”said DeWitt, who will
become the chief staff officer for the 31st
SRG. “For us, all of the equipment is
given to other units, and we expect for her
(NMCB40) to return again someday when
her country needs her. It all comes down
to the number 40 — nothing left to
rust.”

The commanding officer’s comments about expecting
the unit to return again make sense considering NMCB
40 has now been commissioned twice.
NMCB 40 “stood up” in October 1942 in support of
U.S. efforts in World War II. In 1945, when the war was
over, NMCB 40 was decommissioned. The disestablish-
ment lasted for more than 20 years until the unit was com-
missioned once again Feb. 1, 1966, to support U.S. efforts
in Vietnam.
Later, NMCB 40 served in Operations Desert Shield
andDesert Storm(Saudi Arabia), OperationRestore Hope
(Somalia), Operation Joint Endeavor (Bosnia-Herzegov-
ina), and Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Free-
dom (Iraq and Afghanistan).
Fromhumanitarian relief efforts following the Indone-
sian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina’s devastation in New
Orleans in 2005 to supporting the warfighter in nearly
every major conflict since World War II, NMCB 40 and
the Seabees who carried the command colors have con-
tributed to the proud heritage and success of the Navy.
The decommissioning of battalions — in this case,
NMCB 40 and its sister battalion NMCB 7 a week ear-
lier in Gulfport, Miss. — is a familiar scenario at the end
of any U.S. war or conflict.
“The decommissioning of units anddecrease of Seabees
is a part of our nation’s progression following major con-
flicts,”saidCapt. DeanTufts, commander of the 31st SRG.
“During WorldWar II, we hadmore than250,000 Seabees.
That number decreased 98 percent to 5,000 after the war.
During Vietnam, the number rose again to 26,000, only
to decrease after the conflict was over. Even during Iraq
and Afghanistan our numbers surged to 17,000 and now
here we are today with the decommissioning of NMCB
40.”
Guest speaker Rear Adm. Christopher Mossey, who
serves as the Chief of Civil Engineers and Commander,
Naval Facilities Engineering Command, said that while
decommissionings are not rare in the Navy, this wasn’t
something he was looking forward to.
“This moment is truly bittersweet,”said Mossey, who is
recognized as the King Bee. “This happens frequently in
our Navy. In a month, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise
will return fromthe Gulf and be decommissioned after 50
years of service. It’s not about the platform — it’s about
the people.
“To all of us, NMCB 40 represents the bonds we have
made; friends you’ll have commitments with for the rest
of your life. NMCB40 will always be with us because the
Seabees who leave this unit today will take their experience
and knowledge into other battalions.”
Mossey further explained that NMCB40 would live on
through the projects they’ve completed around the world
and the people and communities they’ve helped by build-
ing clinics, schools, water wells and other quality-of-life
improvements.
“Our country will continue to need Seabees as we con-
tinue to foster and sustain relationships with our allies to
improve cooperative security,”saidMossey, whoexplained
that the Seabees’ missions directly support the goals of the
Chief of Naval Operations. “Congratulations and thank
you to NMCB 40 for a job well done.”
The Seabees who worked hard to earn NMCB 40 both
the Battle “E” and Peltier Awards for Best Seabee Bat-
talion both on the West Coast and Navywide said they
will miss the battalion.
“I’ve enjoyed my time in the 40 a lot,” said Equipment
Operator Constructionman Dillon Francis, who is taking
his experience toNMCB4. “I gainedrankhere andI made
a lot of friends. It’s nice to see a lot of my friends coming
with me, but it’s tough to see a lot of people go someplace
else.”
The emotional conclusion to the ceremony came when
DeWitt dismissed the men and women of NMCB 40 for
the final time. The battalion gave the traditional, “Aye,
Aye, Sir”response, performed an about face and filed off
the grinder for the last time — until they are needed
again.

NMCB 4
On the sunny morning of Monday, Aug.
20, 48 Seabees fromthe soon-to-be-decom-
missioned Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 40 stood in formation
with NMCB 4 for the first time. NMCB
4’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation team
organized a family physical training (PT)
regimen and breakfast to welcome the
Seabees of 40 and their families to the bat-
talion.
The commanding officer of NMCB 4,
Cmdr. Jeffrey Kilian, started the morning
by congratulating 40 on a successful de-
ployment and extending an opportunity
for the newmembers of NMCB4 to work
hard and as a team and gain valuable ex-
perience.
Construction Electrician 1st Class Dan-
ny Buccat attended Family PTand break-
fast with his two sons.
“My kids loved it,”he said. “They loved
playing onthe fitness equipment andjump-
ing over the hurdles.”
Morning PT is normally led by compa-
nies, but this PTwas different, with spous-
es and children involved. Fitness instruc-
tors fromthe Bee-Fit Health and Wellness
Center at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme directed the train-
ing, focusing on group activities that pro-
moted both strength and cardio training.
After PT, families had a chance to social-
ize over a buffet breakfast. DJ’s California
Catering provided a hearty breakfast of
eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and break-
fast burritos.
Several organizations set up booths to
educate Seabees and their families on op-
portunities and services, including the
American Red Cross, FOCUS, the Coali-
tion of Sailors Against Destructive Deci-
sions (CSADD), Navy-Marine Corps
Relief Society (NMCRS), Fleet &Family
Support Center (FFSC), embedded Men-
tal Health Program(eMHP) and the com-
mand’s Family Readiness Group and Om-
budsmen.
“This successful event gave families a
chance to mingle and introduced them to
base services,”MWROfficer Ensign Lucas
Keiser explained. “NMCB4 was happy to
welcome 40 to the battalion.”

NSWC Port Hueneme Division
Capt. William DeBow, commanding
officer of the Naval Surface Warfare Cen-
ter (NSWC) Port Hueneme Division, of-
ficially kicked off the 2012 California
Gold Coast Combined Federal Campaign
(CFC) during a Leadership Roundtable
at Ventura County’s California Air Na-
tional Guard base Aug. 29.
The California Gold Coast CFC, which
includes Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo
and Ventura counties, promotes and sup-
ports philanthropy through federal em-
ployee donations. It raises money for more
than 2,000 nonprofit charitable organiza-
tions worldwide.
DeBow, chairman of this year’s cam-
paign, provided opening remarks for the
event, reminding attendees of the impor-
tance of the charitable endeavor.
“With the current state of the economy,
our help is needed more than ever, which
is why we have set the bar high by aiming
to raise $1 million,” he said.
Roundtable attendees included local
military command and federal agency
leadership and representatives. The event
provided an overviewof the campaign and
its primary objective to encourage work-
place participation in charitable donations
to help the hungry, the homeless, the sick,
the disabled, children and families in
need.
Also attending were charity representa-
tives, who told how the campaigns have
impacted the community. In addition,
those who have benefited from the chari-
ties were there to emphasize howthe non-
profit organizations to which the CFC
gives have made a difference in their
lives.
Since 2005, employees at NSWC, Port
Hueneme Division, have contributed more
than $1.17 million to the CFC, according
to CFC records.
NSWC, Port Hueneme Division, is a
field activity of Naval Sea Systems Com-
mand and provides the U.S. Navy global
fleet with weapon system in-service engi-
neering, logistics and test and evalua-
tion.
NSWC, Port Hueneme Division, is a
tenant command of Naval Base Ventura
County and employs more than 1,900
personnel.

Lighthouse editor
“What’s 9/11?”
At 7 years old, Anna-Marie
Miller doesn’t remember Sept. 11,
2001.
But as she stood on a corner
across from Building 1 at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Point Mugu Sunday, Sept. 16,
watching hundreds of motorcy-
clists ride by, she kept seeing
“9/11”among the American flags
and hearing people talk about
it.
“Honey, it’s the day terrorists
attacked our country,”explained
her mom, Krystle Sauermilch,
whose husband is Aviation Struc-
tural Mechanic 1st Class Daniel
Sauermilch of Fleet Logistics
Support Squadron (VR) 55.
Making sure everyone remem-
bers that —and reminding every-
one of the lives lost and of the
heroismand unity shown on that
day and in the 11 years since —is
why NBVC hosted the 9/11 me-
morial celebration.
The annual event serves as a
kickoff for the Ride to the Flags,
a 42.5-mile motorcycle ride to
Pepperdine University in Malibu,
where 2,977 flags are displayed,
one for each innocent life lost in
the attacks.
This year, 850 motorcycles took
part.
The base event was a mixture
of solemn remembrance — a
wreath-laying, the playing of
taps, a flyover —and a fewhours
of fun on a warm, late-summer
day. Motorcyclists who hadn’t
seen each other since last year’s
event swapped stories, and people
danced to a country-western
band, then a rock band.
“This is a uniquely American
event,”said Capt. Larry Vasquez,
commanding officer of the base.
“Motorcycles and music —that’s
the sound of freedom.”
Actor Rob Lowe helped kick
off the festivities, and there were
several celebrity sightings among
the motorcyclists, most notably

The Sept. 16 9/11 commemoration at Naval Base Ventura County, Point
Mugu, included a wreath-laying ceremony in front of the 9/11 Memorial
at Bldg. 1.

actor Keifer Sutherland, Jack Bauer of
“24” fame.
Lowe said that two years after the
attacks, he learned he had been on a
flight with the terrorists – a dry run.
“That showed me how our lives could
change in an instant,” he said, and it
filled him with even more gratitude.
Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg, an
Army Ranger who was injured by an
improvised explosive device nearly
three years ago, was helped onto the
stage by several newly pinned chief
petty officers and expressed his appre-
ciation to the White Heart Foundation,
which organizes the Ride to the Flags
and named Remsburg this year’s ben-
eficiary.
The audience responded, with shouts
of “Cory! Cory! Cory!” filling the air.
Vasquez told the crowd that he was
“incredibly moved” by how many peo-
ple were in attendance. He said it sent
a strong message to those who would
do the country more harm: “You did
not shatter our will, our way of life or
our confidence.”
To the crowd, he said, “Get on your
motorcycles and show the resolve of
this great nation!”
And after a benediction and a quick
ride briefing, that’s exactly what hap-
pened.

NMCB 40
Habitat for Humanity recently
gave 19 Seabees from Naval Mo-
bile Construction Battalion 40 the
opportunity to give back to the
community and share their con-
struction knowledge with volun-
teers from Bank of America by
putting the finishing touches on
two donated houses in Oxnard.
Leveling the yard, hanging
doors, painting the garage and as-
sembling countertops were just a
few of the tasks given to the vol-
unteers for their eight-hour service
Aug. 30.
On top of their usual set of
skills, Seabees were able to gain
insight from other volunteers and
see other angles of performing
that are not taught within the
usual Seabee regulations.
“Habitat for Humanity is a pro-
gram designed to refurbish or
completely build homes from the
foundation up,” said Steelworker
1st Class Danny Toguchi, Seabee
project supervisor. “It provides a
better life for a less fortunate fam-
ily who are deserving and worthy
of such generosity.”
Toguchi called the project a
“tremendous opportunity”to give
back to the community.
“Helping teach and enhance
vocational skills to others who
have never touched, seen or uti-
lized a certain type of tool is
priceless,” said Toguchi. “Being
able to work with everyone from
‘Fighting 40’ one last time with
battalion camaraderie on the job-
site is something I wouldn’t trade
for anything.”
NMCB40 was decommissioned
Sept. 12.

salute each other during the Aug. 29 change of command ceremony.
By MC1 Kim McLendon
Navy Reserve, NPASE WEST
Navy Operational Support Center
(NOSC) Point Mugu held a change of
command and retirement ceremony Aug.
29 that gave the new commanding officer
the dual role of commanding this reserve
center and NOSC Port Hueneme until
they merge next month.
Capt. Ronald Oswald, commanding of-
ficer of NOSC Port Hueneme, relieved
Cmdr. Rodney Woodward of command
at Point Mugu and will now lead both
NOSCs until NOSC Ventura County is
created Oct. 1.
Woodward is retiring after a 26-year
Navy career.
“As the staffs from both NOSCs are
brought together, greater experience, depth
and capacity will now be available to sup-
port the combined reserve units,” said
Oswald.
The merger has been planned for some
time. Events such as the annual Deploy-
ment Readiness Training and Family Rec-
ognition Day have been planned and ex-
ecuted by both NOSCs as one team.
“We have been working close together
for years,”said Oswald. “I believe that due
to Cmdr. Woodward’s leadership and the
effort of the Point Mugu team, this con-
solidation will be the culmination of two
great families who share common ethos,
values and pursuit of excellence.”
NOSC Port Hueneme won both the
Large and Overall NOSCof the Year 2011
for the Southwest Region.
That same year, NOSCPoint Mugu won
the Small NOSC of the Year Award for
the Southwest Region and did so while
performing with reduced staff. The execu-
tive officer, senior enlisted leader and
many key first class positions have not
been filled for some time, leaving the re-
maining Sailors with a heavier workload
each day.
“This is a team that continued a relent-
less pursuit of the countless requirements
and did so with extraordinary results,”said
Oswald.
During Woodward’s three-year tenure,
he and his team mobilized close to 100
Reservists and helped stand up the first
reserve Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
squadron.
Capt. Russell Allen, deputy command-
er, Navy Region Southwest, Reserve Com-
ponent Command, was the guest speaker
at the change of command ceremony and
talked about the tradition and history sur-
rounding NOSC Point Mugu, which was
once Naval Air Reserve Point Mugu.
“The NAR dates back to the days of
sail,” said Allen, “way before any of us
here today were in uniform.”
NOSCPort Hueneme will inherit about
200 Reservists in 12 different units that
provide security forces, manage cargo han-
dling battalions, fly unmanned aerial ve-
hicles and carry out other duties vital to
the nation’s defense. These units rely on
their NOSC for administration and de-
ployment readiness functions.
The new NOSC Ventura County will
combine the 12 Point Mugu units with the
30 Port Hueneme units and have 1,200
billets with 1,000 boots on ground Sail-
ors.
Oswald now leads 2 NOSCs

About 40 Seabees from Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 4 had a unique
opportunity this summer to give back
to the community and in the process help
veterans.
The Seabees set out to build a tent city
to support homeless veterans during
Stand Down, an annual event in Ven-
tura County since 1993.
This July event provides clothing, hy-
giene products, haircuts and even im-
munization shots to homeless veterans.
Everything is donated, and everyone
who supports this event is a volunteer.
“The experience was empowering to
help those that have given so much in
the past to help them now in their time
of need,” said Construction Mechanic
Constructionman Christopher Long.
Before setting up all the tents, tables
and chairs, the Seabees graded the area
to even out the tent sites.
“Even though it was a lot of work set-
ting up tents, tables and chairs, it was
fun knowing we were helping the veter-
ans,” said Utilitiesman Constructionman
George Paul.
It took about three days to get the area
graded and the tent city prepared so
tents could be set up for the weekend
event.
In the end, several hundred attended
and the Stand Down was declared a suc-
cess.
NMCB 4 helps homeless vets at Ventura Stand Down

A former stuntman who has
broken more than 20 bones dur-
ing his career joined three of the
Navy’s wounded warriors Friday,
Sept. 14, in a chat with young
Sailors about overcoming adver-
sity.
Taking the stage at the Need-
hamTheater at Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) Port Hue-
neme, the four men shared stories
about not giving up, about stay-
ing positive and about finding
the will to walk a different
path.
Construction Mechanic 1st
Class Jason Young of the Naval
Construction Training Center
(NCTC) said their lessons weren’t
lost on the audience, much of
which was made up of NCTC
students.
“The kids got to see something
positive,” he said. “They learned
not to let something crappy hap-
pening to you beat you down,
hownot to sulk and be depressed
with how life turns out.”
The forum was arranged by
Capt. David Sasek, chief staff
officer of NBVC, in conjunction
with a Wounded Warrior Train-
ing Camp taking place that week
on base and the Wounded War-
rior Half-Marathon the next
day.
His childhood friend, Kristin
Best, hosts “American Dream
with Kristin Best,” an inspira-
tional radio talk show airing on
the American Forces Network.
Best moderated the forum and
arranged for the visit by Jack
Gill, now a stunt coordinator
because, as he put it, “I can’t hit
the ground anymore.”
Two of the wounded warriors,
retired Hospital Corpsman 2nd
Class Joe Derbak and retired
Electrician’s Mate 2nd Class
Joshua Rosenberg, were on base
attending the training camp. The
third, retired Construction Elec-
trician 3rd Class Ben Host, was
wounded in Iraq in 2004 while
serving with Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 40 and now
lives in Oxnard.
Gill spoke first, introducing his
talk with a clip from“Fast Five,”
one of the “Fast and Furious”
sequels for which he coordinated
the stunts. Later he showed car-
chase clips from the television
show “Dukes of Hazzard,” not-
ing that he was the driver of the
stunt car involved. He estimated
he did at least one car jump a
week every year for six years.
His career, he said, was never
about money.
“It’s the adrenaline rush.”
He also did stunts for “Knight
Rider,” but as the work took a
toll on his body — he broke his
neck once and his back twice as
well as more than 20 other bones
— he realized he’d need to find
a different path.
Today he’s a stunt coordinator,
figuring out how other people
can do the work he used to do
— only better.
“I’mdoing what I want to do,”
he said. “I can’t give up.”
Derbak spoke next. In Septem-
ber of 2009, he was injured in
Afghanistan. He underwent sur-
gery to his back and legs and has
been diagnosed with a traumat-
ic brain injury and post trau-
matic stress disorder. Today he
uses a wheelchair.
Recovery, he said, has been
slow.
“It’s taken four years, but I’m
back to walking 10 to 20 steps
with a cane,” he told the audi-
ence.
Host joined Derbak in talking
about not giving up, about tak-
ing days one at a time.
“You wake up, and your med-
icine is your mind,” said Host,
who suffered a brain injury. “You
keep vigilant, you keep positive,
and you learn what you need to
do.”
Rosenberg agreed that over-
coming adversity is a case of
mind over matter.
“I’ve got to keep doing this
because no one else will do it for
me,” he said.
Rosenberg suffered major in-
fection and internal damage
when his appendix ruptured
while he was serving on a nucle-
ar submarine. Rather than seek
treatment, he continued to serve,
and when his condition was fi-
nally discovered, he ended up
unconscious for two weeks.
The men agreed that when life
throws you a curve, you’ve got a
choice: You can sit back and do
nothing, or you can figure out
what you’re going to do next.
“You have to have help,” Gill
said. “You can’t do it by yourself.
Ask people. Find out howothers
did it.”
Giving up, he said, is not an
option.
Rosenberg said that when
faced with the choice of giving
up or living, “for me, it was not
a difficult decision.”
Host agreed.
“Keep moving forward,” he
said. “Find one thing, improve
on it and gain momentum.”

You’re 13 years old and you really, really
like to skateboard.
And, like, you really want a skateboard
park on base.
So dude, what are you gonna do?
If you’re Astin Martin, you get a bunch
of friends together and start making your
case for a skate park at Naval Base Ven-
tura County, Point Mugu.
“We’re looking for a place to have fun,”
explainedAstin, the 13-year-oldsonof Jen-
nifer and Chief Boatswain’s Mate Michael
Martin of the Navy Operational Support
Center, Point Mugu. “We need to be able
tostay here andnot leave the base. Money’s
tight these days.”
Astin talked with Brett Lane, the Ca-
marillo Youth Center director, and togeth-
er they called a meeting with half a dozen
avid skateboarders late in the summer to
came up with a plan.
They knowwhere they want the park: in
the deserted hockey rink behind the bar-
racks on C Avenue, between 7th and 8th
streets.
Theyknowtheywant it made of concrete,
not asphalt —“Asphalt’s lame,”one young-
ster said.
And they know they want mini ramps,
railings, a bowl, a half pipe, a quarter pipe
and places to sit.
Lights?
“Yeah!”
“Wait a minute. It’s right next to the bar-
racks. Maybe not.”
Lane talked to them about protocol,
about going through channels and being
politely persuasive. He had them think
through their arguments and helped them
build their case.
“What wouldbe the benefits of the park?”
he asked.
“We wouldn’t get hit by a car,” one boy
answered.
“Pedestrians wouldn’t have to worry
about getting hit by a skateboarder,” said
another.
“Who’d use the park?” Lane asked.
“Little kids who want to learn how to
skate.”
“Adults who still skate.”
“Families!”
Once they’d figured out the benefits, they
built some persuasion into the arguments.
“Parents will benefit because we’ll be
outside,” one boy said.
“They’ll know where we are.”
“They won’t worry.”
Lane brought a box of clay sothe teenag-
ers could create a mockup of what they
want the park to look like.
After the model is finished, he said, the
next step is to present the plan to base of-
ficials.
“I’m trying to encourage these kids so
they don’t lose the fire,”he said. “There’s a
good, fulfilling feeling that comes whenyou
take the initiative and get something done.
They’re serious about this.”

comes when you take
the initiative and get
something done.

The Wounded Warrior Half-Marathon
and 5K held Saturday, Sept. 15, at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point
Mugu was the largest running event in
base history, drawing nearly 1,000 com-
petitors.
A total of 569 runners took part in the
half-marathon, and another 347 ran the
5K. In addition, 39 people, including sev-
eral children, walked or ran the Military
Mile.
The event has grown exponentially since
the first one in 2010, the year NBVC was
named the training site for wounded and
ill Navy and Coast Guard athletes vying
for a spot in the military-wide Warrior
Games, held every year in Colorado
Springs.
Proceeds from the Morale, Welfare and
Recreation event benefit the training pro-
gram and help pay for special equipment
that can be used by people with disabilities
on base, including beach wheelchairs,
handicapped-accessible golf carts and
pool lifts.
“I’m really excited about the turnout
and hope it continues to grow,” said event
organizer Amanda Haskell. “It was a re-
ally hot day but thank goodness we had
enough water and everyone stayed
healthy.”
The event got high marks from people
milling about afterwards as they listened
to the rock band Loose Cannons, ate some
of the 5,000 bananas donated by Chiq-
uita and enjoyed turkey burgers that were
free to all runners.
“The volunteers were really nice,” said
Kevin Brown, who finished the half-mar-
athon first with a time of 1 hour, 17 min-
utes, 52 seconds. “It’s a good course, nice
and flat.”
Several of the wounded warriors on
base for the third training camp this year
participated in the runs. Retired Hospital
Corpsman 2nd Class Joe Derbak and re-
tired Aviation Machinist’s Mate 2nd Class
Brandon Griffith cycled the half-marathon
and crossed the finish line unnoticed. They
were so far ahead of the pack that every-
one was still looking in the opposite direc-
tion as 5K runners came in. Their sense
of accomplishment was unfazed.
“It was nice until that last mile and a
half,” said Derbak. “But that’s when you
just reach down and keep going.”
Keena Carstensen, the first woman to
cross the finish line with a time of 1:34:54,
relished her moment as well.
“My last half-marathon was 12 or 15
years ago,” said the cross-country coach
at Thousand Oaks High School. “And it’s
my first one since turning 50.”
But her morning was just beginning. She
spent the next hour jogging out to meet
others in her running group and helping
them cross the finish line.
One spectator saw that and ‘fessed up.
“I don’t have that much ambition to go
get my sister,” she said with a laugh.
The event kicked off with an inspira-
tional message from the base commanding
officer, Capt. Larry Vasquez. He welcomed
everyone, then said he was so motivated
by the wounded warriors he’d met at camp
that he was determined to run the half-
marathon himself, even though he’d nev-
er attempted anything more than a 10K,
about half the distance.
Vasquez finished the race with a time
of 2:24:51.
The morning was full of poignant mo-
ments:
• Lauralee Fuhrmann, whose husband,
Tech Sgt. Wayne Fuhrmann is with the
146th Airlift Wing, California Air Na-
tional Guard, wore braces on each knee
and used a walker to complete the Military
Mile. Accompanying her was her 9-year-
old son, Skyler.
“I’m sore,” she said afterwards, resting
in the shade. “But I finished.”
• Aviation Electronics Technician 3rd
Class Kathleen Ray, one of the wounded
warriors training on base, hand-cycled the
Military Mile.
“The whole reason I got into this pro-
gram was to inspire others,” she said, add-
ing that she had practiced “only a little”
for the race.
To her surprise, she finished easily.

create a gap so runners can get through, and after a few minutes,

this medal.

wounded warriors,” said Construction
Mechanic 3rd Class Sean Badoud, the
company commander.
• The last group to cross the finish
line, with a time of 3:42:20, were some
of the 21 walkers and runners who had
driven down from the Central Valley
and competed as Team Sweeney. They
were there in honor of Jared Sweeney,
a Visalia 19-year-old who died in a car
accident in May. Sweeney’s family had
asked that in lieu of flowers, proceeds
go to benefit wounded warriors. The
group drove to Point Mugu to carry out
those wishes.

Thirteen commands at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) will honor
their ombudsmen Thursday, Sept. 20, during the annual Ombudsman Ap-
preciation Luncheon at the Bard Mansion, NBVC Port Hueneme.
The luncheon will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. About 50 people are
expected.
The Navy created the ombudsman program 42 years ago to provide a link
between families and command leaders. The ombudsman keeps the com-
manding officer informed as to the morale, health and welfare of families,
and families are kept up-to-date on the latest command news via newsletter,
email or social media.
Ombudsmen go through a three-day training program run by the Fleet &
Family Support Center (FFSC), then attend updates several times a year.
The ombudsman coordinator at the FFSC is Corey Kendrick. She can be
reached at 989-1682.

fromprotecting endangered spe-
cies to last year’s massive clean-
up after a fuel tanker crashed
near sensitive wetlands at Point
Mugu.
“You do phenomenal work,”
he told Shide and nine members
of his team who joined him at
the front of the theater to receive
the National Military Fish and
Wildlife Association award.
Smith then provided updates
on issues currently facing the
Navy and opened up the session
for questions.
First, he reassured the group
of about 200 that while the Navy
is indeed trying to do more with
fewer people and less money,
Naval Base Ventura County isn’t
destined for closure anytime
soon.
“We’re on the West Coast,”he
said, adding that the Pacific Re-
gion is nowthe Navy’s top prior-
ity.
But budget cutbacks are com-
ing, he said, and they’ll probably
be noticed first in groundskeep-
ing and facilities maintenance.
“The grass will probably get
longer,” he said.
Another area that warrants
examination, he added, is food
service.
“The galley model is old and
outdated,” he said. “We are not
making money on it.”
In essence, he said, “We’ve got
to figure out how to do things
differently. We’ve got to be more
efficient and save money.”
Smith said the Navy is follow-
ing in the footsteps of the Air
Force and will soon be eliminat-
ing car-windshield decals. At
NBVC, details are still being
worked out as to when they will
no longer be required and how
the old ones are to be handled.
Smith also told motorcycle
riders to expect more stringent
requirements in safety gear.
“I have a real hard time with
those uniforms on bikes,” he
said, pointing to Sailors wearing
the blue Navy Working Uni-
form. “You can’t see them.”
He said the installations under
his command will soon be or-
dered to require motorcycle rid-
ers to wear reflective vests on
base 24 hours a day and to ban
lane-splitting.
In response to a question, he
said change is coming to the
Fleet &Family Support Center’s
Transition Assistance Pro-
gram.
“The transition program we
have now is broken,” he said.
FFSC personnel will soon be
undergoing training in a new
program that he hopes will be
more effective in not only help-
ing Sailors learn job-seeking
skills but also in stressing to lo-
cal businesses the benefits of
hiring veterans.

The question served as an unintentional
segue into the next building, where con-
struction electricians were training.
Tour attendees were eventually exposed
to the training basics for all seven Seabee
rates, led through the training areas by the
Seabees who teach the individual cours-
es.
“I had no clue that so many skills were
taught to our Seabee students so quickly!”
said Kathleen Sheehan, chief of police for
the city of Port Hueneme. “I especially
enjoyed how the commander gave us an
overview to put the curriculum and coor-
dination between the disparate schools all
into perspective, then broke the training
down into understandable chunks.”
“It certainly helped our understanding
to have the actual instructors take the time
to lead each of the individual sessions,”
said John Moore, editor of the Ventura
County Star newspaper.
Several tour members —including mem-
bers of city councils, county supervisors
and representatives fromstate and federal
government offices — expressed surprise
and pleasure at the depth of training of-
fered at NCTC, as well as the unprecedent-
ed access the tours offer.
“I have beenonnumerous tours of Naval
Base Ventura County throughout the
years,” said Brian Miller, district chief of
staff for U.S. Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Simi
Valley, “but most were just ‘drive-bys’ of
facilities with very little explanation of the
activities that occur inside the buildings.
This tour was excellent because it concen-
trated on one aspect of the base and gave
us an in-depth overview of that activity.”
For NBVC, tours such as this are critical
tools in community engagement and out-
reach efforts, allowing the community to
learn more about the base and its mis-
sion.
“We are reaching out to the leaders in
our community and offering themthe op-
portunity to come learn more about their
neighbors at NBVC,” said Capt. Larry
Vasquez, NBVC’s commanding officer.
“The Chief of Naval Operations has stat-
ed that our Navy will ‘Be ready to fight and
win today, while building the ability to win
tomorrow.’ The training and operations
that occur at Naval Base Ventura County,
fromSeabees to cutting-edge weapons test-
ing to flight operations, are all critically
important to our nation’s defense.”

skills was part of last month’s tour offered to 30 guests from throughout Ventura County.

NMCB 4
Over the summer, high school students
participated in the Society of American
Military Engineers (SAME) Engineering
and Construction Camp at Naval Base
Ventura County, where lessons were
given on leadership and teamwork as
well as engineering and construction.
The students worked with volunteers
from the local Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalions (NMCBs), 31st Seabee
Readiness Group (31st SRG), Naval
Construction Training Center (NCTC)
and civilians from the Naval Facilities
Expeditionary Logistics Center
(NFELC).
Participants came from as nearby as
Oxnard and as far away as South Korea.
The Korean student’s parents are service
members in Korea, and when this unique
opportunity came up for him to learn
from the Seabees, they enrolled him and
sent him to Ventura County to attend
this camp.
“The Society of American Military
Engineers camp is a great opportunity
for high school students from around
the world to get together and apply what
they learn during the school year to
practical engineering challenges,” said
Lt. Rachael Musser of NMCB 4.
The students put their construction
and engineering knowledge to the test
over the course of the week through a
variety of projects.
They designed cardboard boats to race
against those of other teams. They built
load-bearing bridges out of popsicle
sticks. They even poured and tested the
strength of a concrete beam.
Also included in the weeklong camp
were tours of the base; classes on fram-
ing, welding, and hydraulics; and a little
exercise with the “Seabee Olympics,”
where each team showed their physical
prowess by competing in games such as
relay races, Humvee pulls and water bal-
loon tosses.
“My experience as a SAME camp
mentor was very rewarding,” said Muss-
er. “My squad of campers was very
enthusiastic, professional and person-
able, and they came up with quite a few
innovative solutions that I had not
thought of. I learned from them.”
