ET1 (SW) Chris Huddleston of Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu,
Air Operations, attaches a string of lights to the newly completed can
tree at The Collection in Oxnard. About a dozen Sailors from the ground
electronics crewhelped students fromthe Architecture, Construction and
Engineering (ACE) charter school in Camarillo build the tree Thursday,
Dec. 6. They returned a few days later to disassemble the tree so the
cans of green beans could go to Food Share and be distributed to needy
families in time for the holidays. Story, more photos, Page 4.
HELPING ON THE HOLIDAYS
Starting Dec. 17, active duty
military members being seen at
the Naval Branch Health Clinic
(NBHC) at Point Mugu will be
transitioned to receive care at
NBHC Port Hueneme.
This change affects approxi-
mately 200 Sailors. Those receiv-
ing health care provided by
squadron flight surgeons or
aerospace medical technicians
will not be affected.
Military members who are not
part of squadrons will still re-
ceive high-level primary care;
they will just receive it at Port
Hueneme.
“This change enables us to
shift staffing and strengthen our
service lines and better serve
Naval Base Ventura County and
all eligible beneficiaries,”said Lt.
Cmdr. Gary Grothe, NBHC
Port Hueneme’s officer in
charge.
Military health care is moving
to a medical home port model
of care, which groups caregivers
into teams that offer holistic
primary care services for the en-
tire family. NBHC Port Huen-
Mugu primary care
moves to Hueneme
Squadron patients,
specialty care not
affected
The holidays can be a bitter-
sweet time for military fami-
lies.
This year at Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC), some
squadron families are coping
with having a loved one cur-
rently deployed, and some bat-
talion families are dealing with
the emotional turmoil of know-
ing a deployment is imminent.
Carrier Airborne Early Warn-
ing Squadron (VAW) 112 re-
cently found a way to bring
spouses and children together to
share stories about military life
and how they’ve dealt with de-
ployments.
And Brittany Barton, the de-
ployment specialist for NBVC’s
Fleet &Family Support Center,
has come up with a list of 10
deployment do’s and don’ts.

Question: Why aren’t the gate guards saluting officers
when they come through the gates? It seems disrespectful.
Answer: As the commanding officer of Naval Base
Ventura County, let me assure you that the pride and
professionalism of our security personnel is paramount.
Our civilian security personnel are the “front line” for
the installation, and they literally have the safety and se-
curity of our Sailors, their families, our dedicated civilian
personnel and critical missions in their hands.
To directly answer your concerns, CNIC policy has
recently changed regarding salutes rendered by civil-
ian contract security and Department of the Navy civil-
ian police officers. This policy is in line with U.S. Navy
regulations.
Salutes are a custom between military members dating
back as far as Roman times when soldiers approached
each other in a manner to indicate they were not armed.
The custom evolved over many centuries in many mili-
taries, but it has always been a custom between military
members. It is also important to understand that the
salute is a custom of mutual respect. That is why both
members salute when each is recognized.
Two key points here: One is that salutes are between
military members. At NBVC, our gate guards are civilian
security personnel and not required or expected to salute
military members. Second, on the occasion that a mili-
tary member is standing the watch at our gates, they will
salute active duty officers — and as a courtesy, retired
officers — when recognized either by being in uniform
and/or by providing their military ID card. DoD vehicle
stickers, while a form of corroborating identification, are
not proper military identification. If you have ever left
your ID card at home and tried, unsuccessfully, to gain
access to the installation, you know this is true. In short,
we salute people, not cars.
I expect that our civilian guards will continue to
display outstanding professionalism and customer service
at our gates. They will render a proper greeting, verify
proper identification, allow access to our installation and
state, “Welcome to Naval Base Ventura County.” While
no one is perfect, and we may fall short of expectations,
we will always strive to do our very best in representing
our installation and our Navy.
Why don’t gate guards salute offcers? w

Dozens of Seabees took to their motor-
cycles Thursday, Dec. 6, to support local
Marines in the annual Toys for Tots cam-
paign to provide Christmas gifts to less
fortunate children.
The Seabees gathered at the Seabee Mu-
seumat Naval Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme, before departing for toy collec-
tion points in Ojai and Camarillo, finish-
ing up at the Ventura Harbor.
In addition to making Christmas mer-
rier for children, the ride was also a show
of support to the Marines who run the
program, according to Chief Builder Dan
McKee.
“Seabees and Marines hang together all
the time, so we wanted to help the Marines
out as much as we could,” McKee said.

More than 10,000 cookies baked and
packaged by local volunteers were deliv-
ered Thursday, Dec. 6, to Sailors living in
the barracks at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty.
“Sweet!” said Construction Electrician
2nd Class Anton Skerl of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 5 as he accepted
twobeautifully wrappedpackages of cook-
ies handed to himby Julie Whirlowof the
Fleet & Family Support Center (FFSC).
Brittany Barton, the deployment special-
ist for the FFSC, said this marked the 13th
year of the project. Local retirees, spouses
and civilians working on base donated
everything from freshly baked chocolate-
chip cookies to store-bought products
wrapped in red and green.
Barton said one woman told her co-
workers at a local bank about the project,
andthey all bakedcookies that she dropped
off in a giant box Thursday.
“We hope it brings some holiday cheer,”
she said.
There were so many cookies that after
the distribution at the barracks, the FFSC
could still ship 20 boxes to Sailors deployed
overseas.

When you leave your desk for the holi-
days this month, remember to take your
energy footprint with you.
The Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Energy Team is asking everyone
to do their part to reduce energy waste
and costs to the Navy while you’re away.
There are more than 10,000 computers
at the base. If left on constantly, they cost
the Navy more than $1 million in electric-
ity bills.
“If we shut down our computers after
the workday, over weekends and during
holidays, this electricity cost could be cut
in half, saving the Navy and the taxpayer
nearly $500,000 per year,” said Tom San-
toianni, energy manager for the base.
Here are some other things you can do
to help:
• Turn off lights in unoccupied areas.
• Turn off lights in areas that receive
adequate daylight, including warehouses
and hallways.
• Use task or table lighting instead of
overhead lighting whenever possible.
• Do a building walkthrough before
weekends and holidays to turn off any
equipment left on.
• Turn off all of your office peripherals,
including speakers, fans, radios, printers,
faxes and copiers.

It sounds like a question on a
college entrance exam:
If you have 10,000 cans of
green beans and you want to use
themto create an 18-tier tree, how
large would the base have to be?
Students fromthe Architecture,
Construction and Engineering
(ACE) charter high school in Ca-
marillo figured it out, and on
Thursday, Dec. 6, with some
muscle provided by Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC), they
built the tree at The Collection,
a new shopping center in Ox-
nard.
A few days later, they helped
take the tree apart so the cans
could be taken to Food Share,
Ventura County’s food bank, for
families needing food this holiday
season.
As one Sailor put it, “That’s a
lot of Green Bean Surprise.”
The Air Operations ground
electronics crew at NBVC Point
Mugu sent about a dozen Sailors
to help with the project.
“I think this is outstanding,”
said Electronics Technician 1st
Class Daniel Oertel, the leading
petty officer in charge. “It’s not
often we can be involved in a
project that helps the community
andalsoshows everyone the Navy
is out here doing things like
this.”
The students, led by construc-
tion technology instructor Gary
Clifford and math teacher Ian
McGwire, had everything in hand
right from the start. About 30 of
them were involved in the actual
construction — 90 had worked
on at least a part of the design
over the previous three weeks
— and, except for a short lunch
break, they spent six hours drill-
ing, stacking and leveling the
massive structure.
“The project involved a lot of
geometry and algebra,” Clifford
said.
At one point during construc-
tion, Electronics Technician 2nd
Class Josh Lampel explained how
to calculate the volume.
“A quadratic equation inte-
grated and rotated around a y-
axis would give you the volume,”
he said.
Huh?
“Really,” he said, “it’s simple
calculus.”
The students had used Auto-
CAD, computer-aided design
software, to come up with the
construction format. They calcu-
lated the size of each tier and
what the base should look like to
support 5 tons.
They also had to solve some
problems on site, like the fact that
the sidewalk they were building
it on had a 3-degree slope for
drainage. They had to slide piec-
es of wood underneath the base
to level it out before they could
begin stacking the cans.
It took them about an hour to
get the base together. By their
lunch break at noon, the tree was
more than halfway done, and
around 2 p.m., senior Manny Go-
mez and junior Jenny Raya at-
tached the lightweight decorative
top made of empty green pea
cans.
The Sailors noticed no one had
brought lights, so they pooled
their money, went to the nearby
Target and came back with a
spool that could be strung around
the tree.
McGwire said a hands-on proj-
ect like this can bring out the best
in a teenager.
“The power and confidence
these kids are showing right now
is unbelievable,”he said. “They’re
working together, and they’re tak-
ing pride in their work.”
Monica James, NBVC’s school
liaison officer, said the project
gave the Sailors a chance to share
teamwork and construction
skills.
“This is such a great project!”
she said as she watched the stu-
dents and Sailors working side by
side.
Electronics Technician 1st
Class Angela McCallister said the
students’ hard work kept the
Navy’s involvement to a mini-
mum, but the Sailors were able
to share at least one important
lesson.
“We organized a working
party to unload the cans,” she
explained.
The students had each been
walking up to the cargo area,
grabbing a box of cans and car-
rying it back to the tree. The
Sailors showed them how to
form a human chain to make the
work safer and more efficient.
“They understood immedi-
ately,” McAllister said. “They
dove right in and were enthusi-
astic about it.”
Leticia Wilson, marketing di-
rector for The Collection, was
thrilled with the final out-
come.
“Maybe,” she said, “we’ll
make this an annual event.”
Sailors branch out with this project
Sailors show students from the ACE charter school that using a human
chain is a safer and more efficient method of unloading cargo than
having individuals walk to and from the cargo area carrying boxes.
With help from ET2 (SW) Pete Geier, ET1 (SW) Chris Huddleston makes
sure the “trunk” of the tree is level.

connection
with Monica
James
The last “School connection” column,
appearing in the Nov. 29 edition, dis-
cussed the college selection and applica-
tion process.
For most families, the biggest deciding
factor in if and where a student will go
to college is the ability to pay for it. For
many families, financial aid and schol-
arships will be necessary.
Beginning Jan. 1, families can com-
plete the most essential form for finan-
cial aid: the Free Application for Fed-
eral Student Aid (FAFSA).
Try to submit the FAFSA as early as
possible to maximize your chances for
college grants. Students and parents
should try to complete 2012 income tax
returns prior to completing the FAFSA.
If this is not possible, file your FAFSA
using estimated tax figures and make
corrections after you have filed your tax
returns.
It is easiest to complete the FAFSA
online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. The
FAFSA on the Web allows families to
transfer information provided on fed-
eral tax returns from the IRS database
to the FAFSA. The FAFSA will need
to be signed by the student and at least
one parent whose information is pro-
vided on the form. Student and parent
can apply for PINs while completing the
FAFSA on the Web so the form can be
signed electronically. Missing signatures
cause delays in processing. (Note: There
are special exceptions for parents unable
to sign due to active military duty or
natural disaster. Contact your college
for further information.)
Information from the FAFSA will be
used to determine federal and state aid,
including grants and student loans. Ad-
ditional scholarships may be available
as well. The website www.mcsfex.net has
a useful tool to assist in finding scholar-
ships.
In addition, families can “like” the
NBVC School Liaison Facebook page.
Scholarships for military-connected
students will be posted there regularly.
Many scholarship deadlines are quick-
ly approaching. Begin the scholarship
search now for the 2013-14 school
year.
Students who plan to attend college
in California should be aware of the Cal
Grant. These grants, which consider
family income and the student’s grade
point average, are free aid offered to
California students pursuing higher
education. Many military dependents
use them to pay for college.
Cal Grant A currently gives recipients
up to $5,472 at a California State Uni-
versity and up to $12,192 a year to stu-
dents attending the University of Cali-
fornia.
To qualify for a Cal Grant, the FAF-
SA and grades must be submitted by
March 2. Many schools will send grades
electronically. However, students and
parents must sign to give permission for
the grades to be sent. For more informa-
tion visit the California Student Aid
Commission at http://www.csac.ca.gov/
or your high school counselor.

preparation and college financial aid, please

Nov. 28 marked the birthday of the
oldest staff corps in the United States
Navy — a corps that was instrumental
in the establishment of the Naval Acad-
emy, and one whose motto is Vocati ad
Servitium (Called to Serve).
On Nov. 28, 1775, the Continental
Congress passed regulations creating this
corps, stating:
“The Commanders of the ships of the
thirteen United Colonies are to take care
that divine service be performed twice a
day on board, and a sermon preached on
Sunday, unless bad weather or other ex-
traordinary accidents prevent.”
Nov. 28 was the 237th anniversary of
the United States Chaplain Corps (CHC).
Its mission statement: “Chaplains care
for all service members, including those
who claim no religious faith, facilitate
the religious requirements of personnel
of all faiths, provide faith-specific min-
istries, and advise the command.”
The word “chaplain” has a meaningful
etymology. In the 4th century, a Roman
soldier named Martin of Tours report-
edly divided his military cloak by sword
and gave half to a beggar shivering on
an extremely cold night. That very night,
it is said that Martin had a lucid vision
that the poor beggar was Jesus Christ.
After he converted to Christianity, Mar-
tin became a devout churchman, and
when he died, he was canonized, becom-
ing a patron saint of France. The Frank-
ish kings would carry St. Martin’s cloak
into battle as a holy relic, a symbol of
divine presence.
The word for “cloak” in Latin is “cap-
pa” or “cappella.” Since the cappella was
a holy relic of the church, a priest cared
for the cappella as custodian. This keep-
er of the cloak, or cappellanus, also pro-
vided ministry to the king and his fellow
warriors. There were usually several
priests who cared for the cloak, and they
were called cappellani. The French trans-
lation of cappellanus was chapelain. This
is where the English word “chaplain”
entered our lexicon.
Interestingly, the depository for this
religious relic was called the “chapel;”the
depository later became a place of wor-
ship.
St. Martin’s “cloak” has had a tremen-
dous impact on several languages and
history.
Chaplains continue to offer support to
troops engaged in combat operations and
serving on ships, often enduring lengthy
deployments alongside fellow Sailors and
Marines.
During the Vietnam War, Chaplain
Vincent Capodanno, a Roman Catholic
priest, was killed ministering to his Ma-
rines during an intense firefight. Although
his right hand had been nearly severed
in the fight, Capodanno wouldn’t leave
his Marines. He could have been evacu-
ated earlier in the fight, but he refused to
go, and he died along with many others
that night. He was posthumously award-
ed the Purple Heart and the Congres-
sional Medal of Honor.
Chaplain Capodanno was called to
serve his Sailors and Marines. He served
them well. You can read about him in a
book titled, The Grunt Padre.
This devotion continues today in the
hearts of military chaplains. We are tru-
ly “called to serve.”
I am profoundly thankful to be count-
ed among the number of men and wom-
en who are the keepers of the cloak. I am
honored to work with great chaplains and
religious program specialists.
Happy birthday, chaplains! Continue
to be faithful keepers of the cloak.

Just in time for the holiday pro-
grams, Religious Ministries at
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) has a new Protestant
music director.
Niccole Modell, a 27-year-old
Camarillo resident who has a
master’s degree in flute perfor-
mance, took over the job in Oc-
tober.
She arranges the music for two
Sunday services —one at the Sea-
bee Chapel at Port Hueneme and
one at the Chapel of Faith at
Point Mugu —and she rehearses
with the choir Tuesday nights.
Having been the musician for
worshipservices at St. Mary Mag-
dalene Church in Camarillo and
for the Camarillo Seventh-day
Adventist Church, Modell knows
the joy that the combination of
music and faith can bring.
“Every church has its own flair
and style,” she said. “I’ve played
when there were 15 in the audi-
ence and when there were 300.
The feeling is different at each
place.”
At NBVC, 85 to 100 people
gather for each Sunday service.
“I’ve always felt that music is
my most personal form of self-
expression, andI canconvey emo-
tions through music better than
with words,” she said.
Her church performances, she
said, come from the heart.
“I believe I’ve been given a gift,
and I choose to honor that gift
and use it for God’s glory,” she
said.
Modell grew up in Camarillo
in an artistic family full of danc-
ers and musicians.
“Creativity’s in my blood,” she
said.
She began playing piano when
she was 5 years old.
“I’ve worked really hard,” she
said. “I went through a phase
whenI wantedtoquit —probably
when I was 13 or 14 — but I
couldn’t bring myself to do it.
There was a learning curve, and
I just had to push myself through
it.”
Modell attended high school at
Newbury Park Adventist Acad-
emy andwas a freshmanwhenshe
performed her first major piano
concert — the first movement of
Beethoven’s second piano con-
certo in B-flat major — in front
of 400 people.
“It was pretty exciting,” she
said. “I had three months to pre-
pare. I was very nervous, but when
you want to do something, you
commit the time.”
Today, Modell is on the board
of that same orchestra, the Thou-
sand Oaks Philharmonic.
After high school Modell
earned bachelor’s degrees in both
flute and piano performance at
La Sierra University. Her fresh-
man studies required her to visit
Europe, where she was struck by
the beauty of the cathedrals in
Italy and France.
“There was too much to see in
so little time,” she said, adding
that she dreams of going back.
Modell earned her master’s de-
gree from California State Uni-
versity Fresno in 2010.
Today, she maintains a private
music studio and is excited about
the release of her first CD.
She also has to get through her
first Christmas performance at
NBVC.
“The choir members have been
very positive and are enjoying the
newrepertoire,”she said. “Every-
one has been very welcoming.”

Niccole Modell is the new
Protestant music director at Naval
Base Ventura County. She has
played the piano since she was
5 years old and has a master’s
degree in flute performance.
• Her favorite piece to per-
form: “Africa,” by Camille
Saint-Saens. “I love pieces
that have programmatic
themes,”she said. “It’s essen-
tially a story. It’s a fun piece,
and I love animals too.”
• Her favorite churchhymn:
“Soon and Very Soon.” “It’s
a message of hope,” she
said.
• Her favorite Christmas
carol: “O Holy Night.” “But
they’re all so good.”

Celebrities from World Wrestling En-
tertainment (WWE) visited Sailors aboard
USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) Nov.
25.
Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squad-
ron (VAW) 112, homeported at Naval
Base Ventura County, Point Mugu, is cur-
rently deployed on the aircraft carrier.
Eve Torres, Layla El Barrami, Ronnie
Killings, Mizanin Michael and Vincent
Kennedy McMahon chatted with the Sail-
ors and posed for photos.
This was their first time on a U.S. Navy
aircraft carrier. “We’ve been to Iraq and
Afghanistan and we wanted to do some-
thing different this year, and this is awe-
some,” said McMahon, CEO and chair-
man of WWE.
The WWE celebrities observed flight
operations, toured the navigation bridge,
and held question-and-answer sessions
with Sailors on the mess decks. They also
posed for photos and signed auto-
graphs.

More than 300 Sailors at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) have advanced
to the next rate after taking advancement
exams in September.
That was nearly double the number of
the previous advancement cycle in
March.
“Navywide, advancement increased this
cycle,” said Navy Career Counselor The-
resa Aguayo of the NBVC command.
“More and more, Sailors are advancing
when they’re supposed to.”
The next advancement exam for E-4 to
E-6 Sailors will be given in March.
“For Sailors who didn’t advance, the
time to start studying is now,” Aguayo
said.
Navywide, the advancement rates after
taking September exams were 46.4 percent
for E4s, 31.5 percent for E5s and 19.5 per-
cent for E6s.
All petty officer selectees are required
to take Petty Officer Selectee Leadership
Training classes before being frocked. This
year the First Class Petty Officers Asso-
ciation and chief petty officers led the
training for all commands basewide to at-
tend.
Following the graduation from leader-
shiptraining, commanding officers frocked
the newly selected at their commands.
Frocked Sailors are authorized to wear
the rank of the next higher pay grade and
take on the attendant responsibilities, but
they do not receive pay for that rank until
their official date of promotion, which
happens in three increments throughout
the fiscal year.
NBVC’s frocking ceremony was held
Monday, Dec. 3, with 28 Sailors being
frocked with their new rank.
Among themwas BU3 Kristin Kowing,
whose father, Richard, flew in from Mel-
bourne, Fla., for the ceremony. Newly
retired fromDelta, he wore his pilot’s uni-
form to pin the insignia on his daughter.
“I asked him to,” Kowing said. “Other-
wise, he’d probably show up in flip-flops
and shorts.”
Grinning, her father nodded in agree-
ment.
Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding of-
ficer of the base, and Command Master
Chief Thomas Cyr pinned several select-
ees personally.
“Of all the things I do in a year, this is
probably the best,” Vasquez told the se-
lectees and their families.

With a traditional bell-
ringing, the lights of the
towering holiday tree in the
Navy Exchange at Naval
Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme
flicked on Thursday, Nov.
29, marking the official start
of the holiday season.
“The tree is a symbol of
life, love and hope,” said
NEX General Manager
Anna Esguerra. “This is the
way we kick off the season,
and we enjoy sharing this
ceremony with the commu-
nity,”
The 6th Annual Tree
Lighting also included
Christmas carols and a pre-
sentation about the Toys
forTots program by U.S.
Marines.
Following tradition,
Capt. Larry Vasquez, com-
manding officer of NBVC,
rang a gold bell and the
lights of the tree came on.
He thanked the NEX for
sharing the event with the
base community.
“Christmas is a festive
and joyous time, and you
help make it so for our
families,” he said.
Capt. Shawn Connor of
the 2nd Battalion, 23rd Ma-
rines Weapons Company, a
Reserve unit at NBVCPort
Hueneme, pointed out the
Toys for Tots collection box
next to the tree and dis-
cussed the program, which
began in 1947 and has since
distributed 386 million toys
— 15 million a year.
Last year in Ventura, San
Luis Obispo and Santa Bar-
bara counties alone, more
than 10,000 toys were do-
nated and given to children
who wouldn’t otherwise
have much of a Christmas.
“We estimate that we’ll be
able to provide similar or
even a higher number of
toys this year,” he said.
“I’m struck by the sup-
port we get from the com-
munity.”

Members of NMCB 4 enjoy a hot meal during their FTX at Fort
Hunter Liggett.

(MRAP) vehicle.
By Ensigns Brad Lawler and William Yun
NMCB 4
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 4 conducted a highly successful
Field Training Exercise (FTX) at Fort Hunter Liggett
last month.
FTX marks the defining event for the homeport
training regimen, during which the battalion demon-
strates proficiency in all aspects of Seabee operations.
Conditions simulate the projected operating environ-
ment of the battalion’s pending deployment to Europe
and Africa.
Prior to FTX, the battalion conducted unit driven
training at all levels to ensure all hands were prop-
erly prepared to achieve the greatest success in the
field. Additionally, the first four days at FTX pro-
vided the opportunity for receiving, staging, onward
movement and integration (RSO&I), where the bat-
talion conducted the finishing touches for FTX ex-
ecution.
With the battalion in full FTX mode, scenarios
started simple and became progressively more com-
plex through the exercise. With battalion Air Detach-
ment (Air Det) and Mainbody movement tasking
mere days apart, the battalion rapidly found itself in
full swing. Operations quickly converted to 24-hour
mode, and rest became a hot commodity, along with
staying warm throughout the night when tempera-
tures fell into the 20s.
After the battalion’s Convoy Security Element de-
livered Air Det to its new operating location, they
found themselves ready for construction and tactical
operations. Despite adverse conditions, the det suc-
cessfully grew into a cohesive, independent team.
While Air Det was working hard at a remote site,
the rest of the companies established the Forward
Operating Base (FOB). With 100 fewer Seabees than
last year’s FTX, the lines were stretched thin. In ad-

Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5 and
their families attended a pre-deploy-
ment fair Friday, Nov. 30, at Naval Base
Ventura County, Point Mugu.
The Fleet & Family Support Center,
American Red Cross, NMCB 5 Om-
budsmen and the Family Readiness
Group provided information for fami-
lies to use while their Seabees are on
deployment.
“The pre-deployment fair is not only
a place for food, fun and family time,
but it is more so a moment to get the
friends and families of NMCB 5 to-
gether,” said Chief Construction Me-
chanic Dawn Ayala, NMCB 5 homeport
liaison and coordinator for the event.
Each NMCB 5 deployment site for
Pacific Command (PACOM) created
displays for families that included in-
formation about each detachment, work
and living conditions, recreational ac-
tivities and more.
“This is going to be my ninth deploy-
ment. From my experience, I know that
the more you tell the families, the more
information they know, the better and
more comfortable they’re going to feel
when their Seabee deploys,” said Build-
er 1st Class Gordon Brewer, assigned
to NMCB 5 Det Guam.
Ayala said the pre-deployment fair
lets Seabees show off where they will
be and what they will be doing for sev-
en months.
“It’s also a chance to let families meet
one another and possibly create friend-
ships to help them through the deploy-
ment in any time of need,” she added.
NMCB 5 is preparing to deploy ear-
ly next year.

dition to manning the perimeter, the com-
panies completed several construction proj-
ects, including one security tower, one Mabey
Johnson Bridge, two bunkers, three South-
west Asia (SWA) huts and an Airfield Dam-
age Repair mission.
A unique aspect of this year’s FTX was
sustained galley and shower operations
throughout most of the exercise. The Food
Service Division served two hot meals per
day. The Logistics Support Area resumed
serving hot meals a mere 29 hours after mov-
ing to Mainbody’s FOB. Showers and hot
chow in the field provided a great boost to
the troops and maintained positive momen-
tum throughout the exercise.
The final test for NMCB 4 came during
an all-out assault on the Mainbody FOB.
After receiving simulated mortar and ma-
chine gun fire, the battalion vigorously
pushed back the enemy and suppressed the
attack.
At the end of the exercise, the battalion
redeployed to Naval Base Ventura County,
Port Hueneme, with “Ready for Tasking”
certification for the upcoming 2013 deploy-
ment to Europe, Africa and Central Com-
mand areas of operations.

“It’s just not fair!”
This has been my attitude whenever my
husband, Neil, a Navy corpsman, was
deployed over the holidays. His multiple
deployments and trainings have separated
us for more than one Thanksgiving and
Christmas, and it has always been ex-
tremely difficult.
Not only was I the lonely one watching
“It’s A Wonderful Life” by myself, but I
kept wondering howmy husband was cop-
ing and what difficulty he was facing.
What was he eating for the holidays? He
told me one Thanksgiving he was on watch
at night and someone brought hima plate
of food. It was pitch black though, so he
ended up having to guess what he was eat-
ing — and apparently some of it didn’t
taste very good.
As Christmas approached, he was prob-
ably waiting for the mail, wondering when
a gift would come for him. What about a
card? Was anybody back home thinking
about him?
I was sad that this was the situation we
were put in. I hated having to miss out on
what other “normal” couples were enjoy-
ing during the holidays — drinking egg-
nog, decorating the Christmas tree to-
gether and dancing to holiday music.
And then one day, I determined to stop
being sad and make the most of our situ-
ation. We didn’t need to fill the holidays
with so many expectations, only to be let
down because of the separation of deploy-
ment. I decided that every day could be a
holiday, a celebration.
I began sending Neil cards and notes
and videos of me singing and playing his
favorite songs on the piano. I would pick
up small things at the store and send them
to him for no reason, just to show him I
celebrated him every day.
He also found his own ways to help cel-
ebrate. He started mailing me 3-by-5 index
cards every week with “Remember
When…”written on the front; on the back
was a great memory he and I had togeth-
er. Every day became a day of thanks and
a day of love for us.
I’d like to think that we chose to cele-
brate life. Rather than wallowing in the
separation and sadness, we found ways to
make the most of it. We found ways to
appreciate and rejoice in each other re-
gardless of the distance.
I hope during this holiday season,
whether your spouse is deployed halfway
around the world or cuddled next to you
on the couch, you find ways to bring the
thanks, joy and love that comes with the
holidays into your lives.
But if you find that you do need assis-
tance in coping with separation, or if you
need specific information on deployment
or any of the several family readiness pro-
grams that the Fleet & Family Support
Center offers, please contact me at (805)
982-3726 or e-mail brittany.barton.ctr@
navy.mil.

Did you knowyou can get a de-
gree in criminology without ever
leaving Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty?
Did you know that as long as
you’re stationed in California, you
and your dependents can attend a
local community college at the
resident fee rate of $46 per unit?
Did you knowyou can take the
ACT college entrance exams on
base?
If you’re interestedinfurthering
your education, your first stop
should be the Navy College.
Withoffices at bothNBVCPoint
Mugu and Port Hueneme, the
Navy College can help military
personnel and their dependents
earneverythingfromanassociate’s
to a master’s degree.
“We provide initial educational
counseling and information on
requirements of eligibilityfor Navy
tuition assistance,” said Rochelle
Goitia, the neweducation services
specialist inthe NavyCollege office
at NBVC Port Hueneme. “For
those individuals who need it, we
can provide vocational and career
counseling. We provide free testing
for college admissions and place-
ment.”
BryanBurdick, the NavyCollege
office site director, staffs the Point
Mugu office in Bldg. 160, across
the parking lot fromthe newly re-
modeled gymand NEXcomplex,
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Friday except on flex-Fri-
days.
The Port Hueneme office had
been closed for 10 months but has
reopened even though remodeling
is continuing. Goitia staffs that of-
fice, located in Bldg. 104, “the
White House,” from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Goitia considers herself a life-
long learner, the same type of per-
son she wants to help in her work
at the Navy College.
“The majority of people we see
want toget their general education
classes out of the way so they can
focus on their major when they
separate fromthe military,”Goitia
said. “We also see a lot of people
whowant acollege degree but don’t
know what field they want to
study.”
In cases like that, Goitia spends
time withthe Sailors talking about
what they enjoy in life, what they
like spending their time doing.
“I get themto start talking,”she
explained. “We talk about their
passion, their learningstyle, wheth-
er they need a classroom or have
the discipline to study online.
“And we talk about tuition as-
sistance.”
In many cases, Goitia said, Sail-
ors can test out of certain classes
—leadershipandmanagement, for
example—becauseof what they’ve
learned in their military careers.
“They can challenge some col-
lege level tests and get the college
credit, saving their tuition assis-
tance money,”she said. “We advo-
cate that. It saves the government
money andit saves youthe time. A
lot of people get college credits for
their on-the-jobtraining anddon’t
even knowit.”
The Navy College can provide
information on the wide range of
courses available on base.
The University of LaVerne,
whichhas classroomspace at both
Mugu and Hueneme, offers bach-
elor’s degrees in business adminis-
tration, organizational manage-
ment, psychology andcriminology
anda master’s degree inleadership
and management.
Embry Riddle Aeronautical

The opening of a new Seabee Museum
exhibit on families that was planned for
Dec. 7 is being delayed until January be-
cause more families have come forth with
items that will alter the face of the ex-
hibit.
Museum Director Lara Godbille said
the exhibit, “It Takes a Family to Deploy
a Seabee,” will now include several wel-
come-home signs that Family Readiness
Groups (FRGs) are donating.
“The donations completely impacted
the design of the exhibit,” Godbille ex-
plained.
The museum’s collection has welcome-
home signs that date back to Desert
Storm. But more than half a dozen recent
ones have now come in.
The exhibit is sponsored by the Bee
Club of Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC). Its backdrop is a mural by Kira
Schaff, the spouse of a Seabee. Schaff
has painted other murals on base, includ-
ing the backdrop for the NEMO under-
water observatory exhibit in the museum
and the one at the NBVC Port Hueneme
pool.
The mural shows a familiar scene at
NBVC Point Mugu: the moment of
homecoming as Sailors walk froma plane
toward the waiting crowd next to Mugu’s
terminal. The mural is black and white
except for American flags, which will be
in color.
More newexhibits are expected to open
in the museum this spring, focusing on
World War II training and the Atlantic
Theater.

Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons
Division (NAWCWD) at Naval Base Ven-
tura County, Point Mugu, celebrated
National Native American Heritage
Month Nov. 15.
NAWCWD China Lake held its cele-
bration the next day.
The ceremonies were held in coopera-
tion with Tribal Nations in the Owens
Valley, near China Lake.
This year’s theme for the heritage
month is “Serving our People, Serving
our Nations — Native Visions for Future
Generations.”
The Big Pine Paiute Tribe of Owens
Valley, the Kern Valley Indian Commu-
nity, the Chumash Tribe and the Timbi-
sha Shoshone Tribe of Death Valley took
part in the festivities to honor Native
Americans who served in the Armed
Forces.
The event also served to further educate
people about Native American tradition,
culture and history.

1. Prepare all paperwork and legal doc-
uments before your spouse leaves. Once
your spouse has boarded that ship, bus or
plane and you’ve waved goodbye, it will
be 10 times harder to obtain any legal
documents requiring their signature. Don’t
expect that your spouse and the legal of-
ficer will be able to drop everything be-
cause you forgot to get a power of attorney
and now you need a new ID card.
2. Agree on a financial spending plan.
Decide together what will be done with
the money (and extra money) that will be
coming in throughout the deployment.
Agree together on a budget, stick to it and
get to the other side of deployment in a
financially healthy place.
3. Don’t listen to rumors, and don’t spread
them either. Rumors can cause large
amounts of undue stress for spouses and
families dealing with deployment. Only
listen to the information you hear from
your ombudsman, homeport liaison or
command representative. If you hear
something you find alarming, call one of
them and verify the information. Telling
other spouses the “news”will simply alarm
them and cause an unnecessary uproar.
4. Follow OPSEC. Operational Secu-
rity is a very serious issue — especially
nowthat we live in the age of Internet and
digital information. You should never talk
about troop movement, locations, opera-
tions or any other classified information
over the phone or Internet. This includes,
Facebook, Twitter, Skype, email, blogs,
etc. Remember, “Loose lips sink ships!”
5. Complete a project or learn a newskill.
One of the worst things you can do
throughout a deployment is sit around and
do nothing. Instead of wallowing in the
separation, take advantage of the time
apart and use it to learn or do something
you’ve always wanted to. Take a college
class, paint a room in your house, build a
bookshelf. FFSC’s new “Miss Fix-It”
workshops can teach you all kinds of
things from how to change your own oil
and performroutine maintenance on your
vehicle to how to patch holes in a wall or
fix a running toilet. The opportunities to
learn are endless!
6. Keep in touch. Whether it’s writing
letters, typing emails or logging on to
Skype, be sure there is a healthy amount
of contact. Writing letters may seem old-
fashioned, but it can often be therapeutic
and can provide you with a keepsake to
hold on to for years afterwards.
7. Talk to someone. Keeping your feel-
ings bottled up can cause stress, so wheth-
er it is an individual friend, your com-
mand’s FRG or an established support
group, it is important to have someone
you can turn to when things get rough.
8. Send care packages. Aside frombeing
a much-appreciated gift by the deployed
service member, care packages are fun to
put together. Get flat rate boxes from the
Postal Service for free and pack them
full.
9. Remember, no news is good news. Of-
ten times, communication with a deployed
spouse will be difficult. Calls will be
dropped, emails will be left undelivered
and letters will inevitably get lost in the
mail. If you aren’t hearing from your
spouse, it’s OK. If there is something
worth knowing, your command represen-
tative will contact you.
10. Don’t fantasize too much about the
homecoming. Unrealistic expectations of
what things will be like once your spouse
gets home can sometimes be a letdown.
Take it slow and don’t let fantasies get in
the way of enjoying your time together.
10 ways to make deployment easier on you, your family
Each month, the spouses of Carrier
Airborne Early Warning Squadron
(VAW) 112 are getting together to dis-
cuss issues they’re facing while a fam-
ily member is deployed aboard USS
John C. Stennis (CVN-74).
They’re also having family sessions
so the children can play together and
chat.
Their first meeting in November
brought together six parents and 12
children at the bowling alley at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
For at least one VAW-112 family, it
was much needed.
“I’m really thankful that I got to
meet and spend time with these women
and their children,” said Tiffany Be-
dard, whose husband, Aviation Elec-
tronics Technician 1st Class Adam
Bedard, is currently deployed with
VAW-112. “At times it’s easy to feel
alone during deployment. Monthly
events like this really help and strength-
en those of us on the homefront.”
The VAW-112 get-togethers were the
brainchild of the command’s ombuds-
man, Rebecca Kammerer, and the com-
manding officer’s spouse, Misty Brod-
sky.
“This gives the kids a chance to meet
others who are also in a military situ-
ation,” explained Kammerer, whose
husband is Aviation Electronics Tech-
nician 1st Class Timmothy Kammerer.

get-togethers
are helpful

Lucas Kammerer, 3, and his sister,
Abigail, 6, enjoy a day of bowling with their
mom, VAW-112 ombudsman Rebecca
Kammerer, and other children of VAW-112
squadron members.
“In my case, we live in Moorpark, so
my kids don’t know others who come
from military families. They finally got
to say, ‘My daddy’s on an aircraft car-
rier’ and hear back, ‘Really? My daddy’s
on one too!’”
The parent-only meetings are also
helpful, she said.
“We’re all able to sit down and ask
questions like, ‘How do you deal with
your child who’s used to the Good Par-
ent/Bad Parent routine and now knows
that’s not going to happen with Daddy
gone?’”
They also exchange tips on how to
make the deployment feel like it’s going
by faster.
Kammerer said the holidays threw a
wrench into the monthly meetings, but
come January, they’ll start up again.
