The 2013 ArmedForces Boxing
Championships have been can-
celed, and as a result, Naval Base
Ventura County won’t be hosting
the All-Navy Box-Off this
month.
However, Navy boxers will be
on base Feb. 25 through March
29 to train for the U.S. Nationals,
scheduled for March 30 through
April 6 in Spokane, Wash.
The Nationals are not a mili-
tary event but usually draw box-
ers from the armed forces.

Happy New Year! Hopefully you all had a great
holiday season with friends and family and you’re
ready to kick off 2013 at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC).
We’ve got a big year coming in 2013, with all
the usual great events, like the Mud Run in May,
Admiral’s Cup and Armed Forces Triathlons in June
and surf contest in August, plus the return of the Air
Show with the Blue Angels in September! We will see
hundreds of thousands of visitors come aboard our
installation to enjoy everything NBVC has to offer,
and it’s really going to be our time to shine.
We’ve worked hard to upgrade our facilities over
the past year. The Warfield Gym project is coming
to a close, and the new field outside the Bee-Hive
Gym has gotten a facelift that includes markings for
football and soccer. We’re in the middle of renovating
Needham Theater, just months after upgrading the
equipment to accommodate the newest film technolo-
gies. Our single Sailors can enjoy upgrades in their
liberty centers, and soon, shoppers at the Navy Ex-
change will begin enjoying new offerings in a refur-
bished food court. Those are just a few of the projects
our team has accomplished.
I hope that you are enjoying the benefits of living
and working in a community that pushes for constant
improvements, and I want you to feel free to share
your suggestions and desires for our community. As
I’ve said before, this is our installation, and together
we can make it the best shore installation in the
Navy.

The newly renovated field outside the Bee-Hive Gym at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
The $1.5 million sports field renovation
outside the Bee-Hive Gym at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme, is com-
plete, two months ahead of schedule.
The new artificial turf sports markings
for football and soccer as well as a vibrant
installation seal at the 50-yard-line.
It comes with a few rules to ensure that
everyone can continue to enjoy the facil-
ity for years to come.
Those using the field are asked not to
use metal spikes or spiked shoes on the
turf, as this could puncture or tear the
surface. This means no golf spikes and no
tent stakes or staked-down goals or sports
equipment. Vehicles, other than emer-
gency vehicles, are also strictly prohibited
for similar reasons.
Food and beverages other than water
are also prohibited on the field’s surface.
As an artificial field, the turf is subject to
staining, and any spills must be quickly
addressed to avoid damage. Morale, Wel-
fare and Recreation staff at the gym will
have clean-up kits available, but restricting
beverages to water reduces the risk. Pets
are also not allowed on the field.
Signs will soon be posted as a reminder
and will include guidelines regarding train-
ing or booking the field for PRT or stag-
ing exercises. Interested commands may
also call 982-4281 or 982-4749 for more
information or to make reservations.

Fair, a predecessor of the air show at Naval
Base Ventura County, Point Mugu.
By Vance Vasquez
NBVC Public Affairs
First of two parts
For many of us, the air show at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point
Mugu holds memories of when our par-
ents brought us here as children, espe-
cially that one-of-a-kind sound of jet
engines screaming through the sky.
The first Point Mugu Space Fair was
held in 1960 as the space race was under
way. Carnival rides, including a Ferris
wheel, and circus-size tents filled the ramp
in front of Hangar 553. Static display air-
craft from Point Mugu, then a Naval Air
Station, included the P-2 Neptune. Flight
demonstrations featuring the Army Gold-
en Knights and an Army helicopter took
place during the morning and after-
noon.
Throughout the 1960s to the early 1970s,
Air show began
in 1960, called
‘Space Fair’
This year’s air show at Naval Base
Ventura County, Point Mugu, will take
place Sept. 28 and 29. Look for a story
related to the air show in each edition
of The Lighthouse until the Sept. 19
special air show edition.

A $750,000 renovation of SurfNet, the
liberty center for single Sailors at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point
Mugu, paid off with one quote:
“This place is awesome!”
That was the opinion of Construction
Mechanic Constructionman Daniel Hal-
lock of the Naval Construction Training
Center, who was playing pool shortly
after the Dec. 12 ribbon-cutting at the
newly remodeled facility.
His comments were echoed by Chief
Electrician’s Mate Ed Manalansan, who
was looking forward to his upcoming
retirement.
“I’m glad for these young guys,” he
said as he looked over the newly tiled
floor, comfortable gaming chairs and
bank of consoles. “This is a big turn-
around.”
Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding
officer of NBVC, thanked both Morale,
Welfare and Recreation and Public Works
for putting the effort into a facility for
the base’s young Sailors — a place where
they can not only surf the Internet but
also play video games, watch movies,
play pool and socialize.
“These young Sailors are away from
home for the first time, looking for things
to do,” he said. “This is a big deal for
them. Without them, we can’t do what
the nation expects us to do.”
The renovation included ripping up the
old carpeting and replacing it with tile,
installing new energy-efficient windows,
installing an air-conditioning and heat-
ing system, painting the teal and orange
walls a muted gray, renovating the rest-
rooms, replacing the counters, upgrading
the electrical system for computer sup-
port and removing the theater seating.
Now the theater is full of cozy reclin-
ers, thanks to Rent-A-Center’s Operation
Just Like Home program, which pro-
vided $15,000 worth of furnishings. In
addition to the recliners, the grant paid
for sofas, tables, televisions and comput-
ers.
“This is now very inviting to the Sail-
ors living here,” said Deborah Williams,
site manager for community support
programs. “It looks great!”
SurfNet reopens with new ambience, new furnishings

Whether a student is new to Ventura
County or has been attending school
here for some time, it’s important for
families to know their options when
choosing a school.
School transfers
There are two types of school trans-
fers: intradistrict and interdistrict. In-
tradistrict is a request to go to a school
within your home district. Interdistrict
is a request to go to a school outside of
your home district. As space is available,
these transfers may or may not be ap-
proved. If approved, transportation is
the parent’s responsibility. Some districts
begin the request process early in the
calendar year for the next school year.
If a family is requesting an interdis-
trict transfer, it must be approved by the
school district of residence that will be
“releasing” the student and the school
district accepting the student. Now is
the time to begin this process for 2013-
14, since the request must go through
both school districts.
The priority deadline for requesting
an intradistrict transfer is usually in
February or March.
If a school is placed in Program Im-
provement (PI) due to its inability to
meet Adequate Yearly Progress, a stu-
dent can request a transfer to another
school in the district not in PI, as space
permits. In this situation, transportation
is the responsibility of the school dis-
trict. Districts do have deadlines for the
request. A letter is typically sent home
notifying the family of this option at
the end of summer or the beginning of
the school year.
Charter schools and magnet schools
A charter school is a public school that
operates independently of the school dis-
trict structure. Each charter school has
its own registration process and registra-
tion period. Often the registration period
is the beginning of the calendar year for
the following school year. Transportation
is the responsibility of the parent.
A magnet school operates within a
school district; however, it tends to have
a focus area — technology or science, for
example — while still fulfilling all Cali-
fornia state standards. Often, enrollment
is based on a lottery that is usually held
early in the calendar year.
Private schools
Although cost and transportation is the
responsibility of the parent, private
schools may offer benefits that some pub-
lic schools are not able to provide, such
as religious education, alternative sched-
ules, specialized instruction or before-
and after-school care. When choosing a
private school, there are many questions
parents should ask concerning teacher
credentialing, school accreditation and
average class size. Private schools are not
accountable to the Department of Edu-
cation to report on student progress.
Home school
This is an option for parents who
choose to take the responsibility of edu-
cating their child. Often, costs are the
responsibility of the parent; however,
there are many resources available for
families interested in homeschooling,
including support groups or “virtual”
schools to provide support and curricu-
lum.
Some local school districts and charter
schools have also added a home study
component. This allows the student to
do their work primarily in their home
under a parent’s supervision. However,
there is typically a weekly check-in with
a teacher. Curriculum and books are pro-
vided by the school.

options in Ventura County, please contact the

A few months ago, I saw a very odd
sight along Wooley Road in Oxnard. A
man in a jogging suit was running along-
side the road and had what I initially
thought were two-pound hand weights in
each hand. When I took a second look, I
saw they were not hand weights but
bunched stalks of celery that he was
pumping up and down as he ran.
I am not sure I understand why he was
running with celery stalks. I tried to think
of all the possibilities. Maybe he gets hun-
gry as he jogs and that was going to be
lunch at some point. Maybe he was a
gleaning farmworker. Maybe he couldn’t
afford weights and improvised, but then
I thought there were so many other things
he could have used that would have been
more effective and manageable. There is
just no good explanation for this odd be-
havior that I could come up with on the
spot.
As I think about life though, I wonder
if people examining our behavior would
see things that do not add up or make
sense. As we’re running along trying to do
things that are beneficial for us, are we
carrying things that are completely un-
necessary, uncharacteristic or utterly ri-
diculous? Is there a real purpose for the
things we carry?
January is the month in which we ex-
amine our life and figure out what we want
to improve on, change, transform. We
make our New Year’s resolutions based
on our findings. It is a time we trimthings
from our lives that are unnecessary.
A wise man in Ecclesiastes 1:14 wrote,
“I have seen all the things that are done
under the sun; all of themare meaningless,
a chasing after the wind.”
As we run our race called life, are the
things we do beneficial, or do we feel like
we are just chasing after the wind? This is
a good question to ask ourselves as we try
to decide what to change in 2013 to make
improvements.
We can run our best race with a piece
of solid advice from this passage: “There-
fore, since we are surrounded by such a
huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith,
let us strip off every weight that slows us
down and so easily trips us up. And let us
run with endurance the race God has set
before us.” (Hebrews 12:1)
Run your best race, and may God’s pres-
ence be the strength and sure foundation
of your life!
New year a good time to ask: Are we running our best race?

Sixty-five foster children in Ventura
County received holiday presents in De-
cember thanks to the Angel Tree project
coordinated by Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty Religious Ministries.
“Who knows better than military fam-
ilies what it’s like to be away from parents
and families over the holidays,”comment-
ed Lt. Lesa Welliver, the staff chaplain
who organized the project. “I was so
pleased to see people open their hearts
and show that they best understand what
it means to be apart.”
Families, command leaders, even stu-
dents in the Naval Construction Training
Center (NCTC) stopped by the Seabee
Chapel and picked up a tag with a child’s
name, age, gender and hoped-for gift, then
filled the wish.
The NCTCliaison picked up the names
of six children, and the students filled the
youngsters’ wish lists.
“NCTC students brought in a box
loaded with bags of gifts — and they’re
only here for three months,” Welliver
said.
Kris Bennett, the district director of
Aspiranet, which runs the county’s foster
care program, and Lilia Gurrola, program
manager, picked up the 65 gift bags
Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 12, so the
children would get themin time for Christ-

“We are so thankful for this,” Bennett
said.
Perhaps the most touching present of
all was for one girl who said she enjoyed
arts and crafts. The person who chose her
tag bought her an art set full of water col-
ors, oil pastels and colored pencils — all
in a box engraved with her name so she’ll
always have something to call her own, no
matter how many homes she lives in.

Sailors fromFleet Readiness Center South-
west Det. Point Mugu (FRC) continued their
outreach efforts with students from the Gate-
way Community School in Camarillo with a
visit to Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Point Mugu Dec. 19.
Gateway teaches students who have been
expelled from other schools or recently re-
leased from juvenile detention.
“For many of them, it’s a last chance,” said
Chief AircrewSurvival Equipmentman Chris-
tian Martin, FRC’s quality assurance officer
and one of the organizers of the December
visit.
FRC has an ongoing partnership with the
school, mentoring the students and showing
them that there are other paths they can take,
Martin explained.
For this visit, FRC brought about a dozen
students aboard and showed themaround the
FRC work spaces, then took a short trip to
the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX)
30 hangar for a briefing and tour of the vari-
ous aircraft the squadron uses.
Also along for the trip was boxer Brandon
Rios, who lives and trains in Oxnard and
whose October win over Mike Alvarado was
named Sports Illustrated’s Fight of the Year
for 2012. Rios has also been working with the
Gateway students, helping them redirect their
energy into workouts and physical activity,
Martin said.

VAW-117
For the members of Carrier Airborne Early
Warning Squadron (VAW) 117, participating in
the 2012 Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise
offered multiple professional and personal oppor-
tunities; for five “Wallbangers” it offered the
chance to re-commit to their Navy service on hal-
lowed ground: the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl
Harbor in Hawaii.
The memorial straddles the remains of the USS
Arizona, which sank during the Dec. 7, 1941, at-
tack on Pearl Harbor, killing 1,177 people aboard.
A wall of names memorializes the fallen, 1,022 of
whom are buried at sea with the ship beneath the
memorial.
“One of my family members’ names is on the
wall,” said Aviation Machinist’s Mate 3rd Class
Charles McCray, referring to Mess Attendant 1st
Class Samme Willie G. McGrady.

“Knowing I’m re-enlisting … in the
place where he died for his country
makes me really proud that I’m part of
this tradition,” McCray added, noting
his family’s long history of military
service.
Other Sailors re-enlisting with Mc-
Cray initially joined the Navy for a
variety of reasons: to find direction,
like Aircrew Survival Equipmentman
2nd Class George Lewis; or to improve
their lives, like Avionics Electronics
Technician 2nd Class Ashley
Schubert.
“I came from a rough background,”
Schubert said. “I wanted something
better for myself.”
But when it came time to re-enlist,
Schubert wasn’t sure she really wanted
to do it. Her fellow Sailors helped
change her mind.
“I mentioned it to one of my Sailors,
and he got really upset. That’s when I
realized that I didn’t want to leave my
family,” she said, referring to her broth-
ers and sisters in the Navy.
Family, both of blood and of bond,
factored strongly into all five Wall-
bangers’ decisions to re-enlist.
Aviation Structural Mechanic 1st
Class Jose Barrientosclimaco did it to
make his kids proud.
“My eldest took me for show-and-
tell,” he said. “They’re so proud of me.
Knowing that makes it easier to deal
with the distance and the time apart.”
Aviation Structural Mechanic Safety
Equipment 3rd Class Rebekah Smith’s
mother, Arlene, joined her at the memo-
rial to witness her re-enlistment.
“My mom was there beside me, just
like she’s always been,” Smith said.
After re-enlisting, each Wallbanger
received a flag that had been flown over
the USS Arizona memorial, a gift from
their Navy family to remind them of
their commitment to the service and to
one another.
“Re-enlisting here, being in the midst
of our heritage … puts the next four
years into perspective,” Lewis said.
“I’m not alone on this journey.”

Weapons 101 series will be taught 3 times during year
By Kimberly Gearhart
NBVC Public Affairs
While most Sailors were enjoy-
ing some down time during the
holidays, the Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Public Works
Facilities Engineering and Acqui-
sitionDivision(FEAD) was burn-
ing the midnight oil, completing
a major, and at times problematic,
resurfacingproject onrunway3-21
at NBVC Point Mugu.
The 11,000-foot runway, which
Lt. Cmdr. Ward Doss, FEAD di-
rector, noted was last paved in
1967, was inneedof a newasphalt
overlay. Because 3-21 crosses the
facility’s second, shorter runway,
both needed to be closed for part
of the project’s duration.
NBVCis home tosevenmilitary
aviation squadrons and services
the 36,000-square-mile Point
Mugu Sea Test Range in addition
to several deployable battalions
that dependonthe airfieldtomove
people and supplies. Additionally,
NBVC San Nicolas Island, lo-
cated 65 miles from NBVC Point
Mugu, is reachable in a timely
manner only by shuttle flight.
“Our air operations team
worked with local county airports
to support some of our aircraft
during the closure,” said Vance
Vasquez, NBVC’s deputy public
affairs officer. “We had to ensure
that we could continue our mis-
sion.”
To minimize the impact on air-
field services and the various mis-
sions supported at NBVC, the
Naval Facilities Engineering Com-
mand (NAVFAC) project, bud-
getedat more than$5 million, was
scheduled for the slowest opera-
tional time of the year —the win-
ter holiday season between Dec.
15 and Jan. 1.
But just days into the construc-
tion schedule, the contractor,
Reyes Construction, Inc., encoun-
tered issues while milling the exist-
ing asphalt layer. Workers had
originally planned to mill the top
two inches of asphalt, then resur-
face. Due to the condition of the
subsurface, however, the contrac-
tor needed to mill an additional
inch to find a suitable surface to
repave.
That inch of asphalt— and the
extra work it would entail —add-
ed $1.4 million to the project.
“Under normal circumstances,
it would take a six-month approv-
al and negotiation process to get
that extra money and get the con-
tract modified,” Doss said.
“Thanks to superb coordination
between NBVC Public Works,
NAVFAC Southwest and Reyes
Construction, we got it done in
two short days.”
Then there were the rain de-
lays.
In the end, the project replaced
three inches of asphalt, repaired
the runway’s shoulders andingen-
eral increased the service life —
and look — of the airfield at a
total cost of $6.5 million.
It was completed by the Jan. 1
date.
“That’s recordtime,”saidCmdr.
JimBrown, NBVC’s public works
officer.
“We fought against the weather,
the clock, unforeseen conditions
andjust about anything the paving
gods of the underworld could
throw at us,” said Lt. j.g. Alex
Rovinsky, FEAD construction
manager, “and we prevailed.”

James Thime’s grandmother taught
him two key lessons in baking: Always
use cake flour, and always put the dry
ingredients through a sifter before mix-
ing them with the liquids.
His grandmother must have been
onto something, because the hospital
corpsman took first place in last
month’s bake-off at the Port Hueneme
Commissary at Naval Base Ventura
County.
HM1 Thime of the Naval Branch
Health Clinic Port Hueneme made a
Chocolate Cherry Surprise Cake that
wowed the judges and put him first
among the seven competitors.
“Thanks, Grandma!” Thime said
when his name was announced.
“My grandmother taught me that if
I put everything through a sifter, all the
dry ingredients open up and the lumps
come out,” he said. “I also made sure
the kids didn’t run around so the cake
would fall.”
Thime won $300 at the Dec. 12 event,
the second competition sponsored by
the commissary. A chili cookoff was
held Nov. 7.
“Our goal is to have an outreach like
this once a month,” said Velma Siler,
store director. “We want to embrace our
Sailors. Plus, it’s fun!”
The three judges, all masters-at-arms
from NBVC Force Protection, rated
each entry on taste, presentation and
uniqueness.
“Each of you did a wonderful job,”
said MA1 Lee Van Horne, who judged
with MA1 Christoper Uutela and MA1
Ryan Vanderpool.
Each contestant received cash or a
gift basket.
The real winners, however, were the
customers in the store that day. Every-
one stopping by the judging area was
invited to sample the entries and have
a free slice of cake prepared by the com-
missary bakery.
Taking second place in the competi-
tion and earning $200 was Deanna
Bruchey, whose husband, Steelworker
1st Class William Bruchey, is with the
31st Seabee Readiness Group. She made
Dee’s CocoNutty Snaps.
In third place and winning $100 was
Michelle Dentremont, whose husband
is Construction Mechanic 2nd Class
Phillip Dentremont with Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 5. She made
Pecan Rolls with Caramel Sauce.
Morgan Francis, whose husband is
Equipment Operator 3rd Class Dillon
Francis of NMCB 4, made Macaroons
with a Mint White Chocolate Filling.
Karey Judice, whose husband is
Equipment Operator 1st Class Scott
Judice of NMCB 3, made Turtlebacks
and had planned to also bring Pumpkin
Spice Fudge, “but it didn’t set.”
Judice also competed in the chili coo-
koff.
“I love this,” she said. “It’s a lot of
fun. I plan to do this every time.”
Marjorie Chandler of Port Hueneme,
whose husband is an Air Force retiree,
made a Banana Nut Bread, and Ale-
jandra Barajas, whose husband is Con-
struction Electrician 1st Class Isaac
Barajas, made Walnut Bread.

Hundreds of children with parents in
tow visited last month’s Winter Wonder-
land — an event that proved to be, liter-
ally, the only bright spot that day at Na-
val Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme.
The annual event next to the Youth
Center was held Saturday, Dec. 15, the
same day a mechanical failure took out
power at NBVC Port Hueneme from
10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
As a result, more than 1,200 people
flocked to the event to not only play in
42 tons of snow but also to avail them-
selves of the free hot cocoa and marsh-
mallow roast.
“We had generators up, and we rigged
the bathrooms with flashlights,”said Am-
ber Melendez, the coordinator of Child
and Youth Programs at NBVC Port Hue-
neme. “The only thing we couldn’t do
was serve Frito boats.”
Frito boats were the last thing on any-
one’s mind as kids tossed snowballs,
decorated cookies, had their faces paint-
ed and sat on Santa’s lap during the free
event that started at 3 p.m. and ran well
past dark, ending just before the power
came back on.
Cassandra Hudson came for the second
year in a row with Brody, now 1, and Ki-
ley, now 3. This time, she also brought
her husband, Construction Mechanic 3rd
Class Zachary Hudson of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3, who
was deployed during last year’s Winter
Wonderland.
“We did this last year and had lots of
fun,” she said. “It’s a lot easier with two
adults.”
Parents jumped at the chance to intro-
duce their little ones to snow.
“It’s his first time,”said Aviation Struc-
tural Mechanic 1st Class Finn Andreasen
of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron
(VR) 55 as he watched 19-month-old Ki-
eren experience the touch, taste and sight
of snow. “We’re fromNewOrleans, where
it has snowed twice in the last 60
years.”
Other families enjoyed the snow thank-
ful that it was only on the CYP grounds
and not in their driveway.
“We spent three and a half years in
Wisconsin,” explained Equipment Op-
erator 1st Class Frankie Cruz of NMCB
3, who came with his wife, Erika, and
their 7-year-old, Chevelle.

be exhausting for 19-month-old Kieren
Andreasen, shown here falling asleep on the
shoulder of his dad, AM1 Finn Andreasen of

As they are every year, the numbers are
astounding: 900 gift bags, 400 bicycles
— row after row of presents lined up in
massive Hangar 34 along the flightline at
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Point
Mugu.
“This is amazing!” said Capt. Larry
Vasquez, clearly enjoying his first Opera-
tion Holiday Gift Drop as commanding
officer of NBVC.
For the 10th year, U.S. Rep. Elton Gal-
legly, R-Simi Valley, said thank you to
military families by distributing toys and
bikes to children of those on active duty
or mobilized Reserves.
The Dec. 16 event began shortly after
noon with Santa and his helpers disem-
barking a C-130 aircraft next to the hangar
and shaking hands with the hundreds of
children standing in line with their parents
for a gift bag and the chance to receive a
free bicycle or motorized car.
First in line were 2-year-old Chloe and
1-year-old Seeley, who came at 5:30 in the
morning with Mom and Dad, Sherri and
Utilitiesman 2nd Class Kendall Batson of
the 31st Seabee Readiness Group.
“We came last year at about 10 a.m. and
didn’t get anything, so we came earlier this
year,”explained Sherri, who stayed in line
for seven hours despite being 37 weeks
pregnant.
This time, they didn’t leave empty-hand-
ed — no family did, in fact.
“I think it’s great,” Batson said as he
juggled the overflowing toy bags.
Like the Batsons, many families spent
hours together in line, playing board games
and catching up with other families.
“Four hours went by so fast,” said Sh-
eryl Melbourne, the wife of Chief Equip-
ment Operator Marvin Melbourne of
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5
and mom of 4-year-old Amira. “This is
such a great thing to look forward to over
the holidays. And you can’t beat it for
toys!”
For Gallegly, this is a year-round project.
By the time December rolls around, his
home is filled with toys waiting to be
stuffed into gift bags.
“It used to be food,” he said. “Then we
branched out into toys.”
This year, he also supplied 500 turkeys
for Thanksgiving.
Gallegly retired from Congress this
month, but his friends say Operation Gift
Drop won’t stop.
“This will continue,” said Jack Howard
of Newbury Park, who has volunteered
with the event for six years.
Families said nothing would please them
more.
“Everyone thinks military families have
oodles of money, but that’s not the case,”
said Corinna Savage, mom to 6-year-old
Kyle and wife of Chief Builder Sean Sav-
age of NMCB 4. “Everything helps.”
She smiled as she looked into the gift
bag and saw something attached to an
electronic toy.
“Look!”she said. “They gave us batter-
ies! That’s awesome.”
Gift bags were separated by gender and
age, so youngsters were guaranteed to find
something they’dlike. There were noscenes
out of “A Christmas Story” — no pink
bunny suits for a 9-year-old boy.
Insteadthere were basketballs andradio-
controlled cars, several of which kept their
newowners entertained as they waited for
the bike raffle to start.
Sometimes, Christmas does come ear-
ly.

sponsored this event for 10 years.
More than 900 gift bags and 400 bicycles fill a large portion of Hangar 34 the morning of
Operation Holiday Gift Drop on Sunday, Dec. 16.

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Ladies, what would you do if you got a
flat tire while driving? What if your car
started leaking oil?
You might be thinking, “I’d take it to a
mechanic” or “I’d have my husband fix
it.”
Unfortunately, as military spouses, our
husbands leave us at the drop of a hat for
months — or years — at a time. And how
many times have you left mechanics hav-
ing no idea of what they’ve told you?
Here at the Fleet & Family Support
Center, we want to help you avoid those
situations and empower you with the skills
you need to perform your own basic auto
maintenance with our brand-new work-
shop called “Miss Fix-It: Auto 411.”
Growing up, my dad performed all the
maintenance on our cars. He’d be out in
the garage in his coveralls for hours at a
time working on things that were sure to
leave him dirty and covered in grease.
When I turned 16 and was given the
family clunker to drive, my dad insisted
that I learn some basic things about cars
and how to maintain them before I was
allowed to drive.
“You have to take care of the car,” he
told me. “It’s not going to take care of
itself, and I’m sure not going to take care
of it for you when you’re the one who’s
driving it.”
With an obvious roll of my eyes, I head-
ed into the garage. A few weeks later, I
emerged with auto skills you wouldn’t
believe. I felt like I could take on any Ford,
Chevy or GM mechanic. I knew how to
change a tire, check all my fluids, change
a brake light, headlight and turn signal
and even change my own oil.
I felt empowered.
Today when I go out on the road, I don’t
worry about what I’ll do if I get a flat tire.
I don’t have to pay $40 or more for an oil
change because I do it myself in my garage
for less than half the price. I want you to
have the same advantages, empowerment
and peace of mind. Wouldn’t you like to
take care of those things yourself rather
than relying on someone else who will take
your time and money? You can! Join us
for Miss Fix-It: Auto 411 from 10 a.m. to
noon Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Port Hue-
neme FFSC and learn valuable skills that
will save you time and money.
For information call 982-5037.
And look for future Miss Fix-It work-
shops that cover even more auto skills and
do-it-yourself fixes in your home.

consultant at the Fleet & Family Support

COMACCLOGWING
Families of squadronmembers stationed
at Naval Base Ventura County, Point
Mugu, held their annual holiday party
Saturday, Dec. 8, in Hawkeye Country’s
Hangar 554.
Going for something faster than a sleigh,
Santa arrived in one of Carrier Airborne
Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 117’s E-
2C Hawkeyes.
Each of the 200 children attending met
Santa, then received a treat and a toy.
The event included several craft tables,
games and a hot dog cookout.
The party was put on by the Command-
er Airborne Command Control and Lo-
gistics Wing, led by Capt. Matthew
Danehy, commodore, and Capt. Todd
Watkins, deputy commodore.

Religious Ministries holds marriage workshop
A total of 429 pounds of canned food
was collected over the holidays at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) for distri-
bution to needy families.
Food was collected through Dec. 14 at
the Seabee Chapel, NBVC Port Huen-
eme.
“It is always wonderful to give a gift to
someone and to receive the joy of seeing
the look on their face when they open their
gift,”said Lt. Lesa Welliver, the staff chap-
lain who organized the food drive. “At this
time of year though, meeting the basic
needs of a person who does not have food
for the holidays is much more signifi-
cant.
“As a Religious Ministries Team, it has
been our gift to be a part of sharing this
blessing with the community who is sup-
ported through the Ventura County Food
Share program.”
Food Share serves 74,500 families.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa
Claus — proven by two Sailors
stationed at Naval Base Ventura
County who made sure Santa
visited some local classrooms.
The Sailors enlisted help from
50 others to buy presents for chil-
dren at Sunkist Elementary
School in Port Hueneme and Art
Haycox Elementary School in
Oxnard. Teachers placed the gift
bags on their students’ desks after
the youngsters had gone home,
so the next morning when the
students got to school, it looked
like Santa had visited.
The project started with one
classroom10 years ago, then grew
to three classrooms last year and
was able to expand to six this year
because of the Sailors’ efforts,
organizers said. That’s 182 chil-
dren.
Aviation Support Equipment
Technician 1st Class Rik Wallace
of the Fleet Readiness Center
Southwest Det. Point Mugu
(FRC) heard about the project
through his wife, Liz, who works
for the Ventura software engi-
neering company that came up
with the project.
He and Naval Aircrewman Me-
chanical 2nd Class Aaron Prath-
er of Fleet Logistics Support
Squadron (VR) 55 enlisted the
help of their friends and co-work-
ers, each of whom received a pa-
per listing a child’s first name,
age, clothing size, gender, favorite
color, favorite book topic and
desired toy.
Sailors then went out and
bought each child a jacket, gloves
or mittens, Crayons or colored
pencils, a book and a toy. Some
added more, like a toothbrush or
hairbrush.
“Once we started it just blew
up,” Wallace said. “Some people
took four or five names.”
He figured about 30 Sailors
from FRC and 20 from VR-55
took part.
“Everyone got really active,”he
said. “People are really generous
when it comes to kids.”
Sunkist first-grade teacher Es-
tella Mendoza has participated
in the Secret Santa program for
several years. She said the chil-
dren’s faces light up when they
see the gift bags on their desks.
“They just walk in and the
presents are there,”she explained.
“No work gets done that day —
well, a little, but not that
much.”
She said each child writes a
thank-you note to Santa.
“One gift is really a help to
some of these families,” she said.
“I had one momwho was almost
in tears telling me howhappy she
was that her child was going to
get a gift.”

schools in Oxnard. About 50 of their co-workers volunteered to help
purchase presents for the students.

she was that her
child was going
to get a gift.

U.S. Navy
Sailors fromNavy Operational
Support Center (NOSC) Ventura
County, along with local veterans
in hospice, paid tribute last month
to those lost in the Dec. 7, 1941,
attack on Pearl Harbor during a
Spirit of ’45 event organized by
VITAS Innovative Hospice Care
and the Shoreline Care Center in
Oxnard.
“This visit was especially impor-
tant to our veterans and our cur-
rently serving Sailors given the
71st anniversary of this infamous
day in history,”said Capt. Ronald
Oswald, commanding officer,
NOSC Ventura County.
In residence at Shoreline are 40
veterans whoservedduring World
War II or the Korea or Vietnam
wars or the years between. To
demonstrate the high regard they
hold for these veterans, 19 Sailors
volunteeredtheir time tovisit with
them Dec. 7.
“There are fewthings more pre-
cious than our time, and our Sail-
ors seek to showtheir respect and
appreciation to our local veterans
by giving their time and a ‘listen-
ing ear,’” Oswald said.
Command Master Chief Terry
Delacruz asked those in his com-
mand at NOSC to take time to
remember this historical andsom-
ber day in American history.
“Onthis day 2,335 service mem-
bers and 68 civilians were killed
in the one hour and 50 minute at-
tack on our Pacific Fleet 71 years
ago,” said Delacruz.
The event began with colors be-
ing presented by the Ventura
County color guard.
“Presenting the colors to these
heroes is going to be one of my
greatest memories that I will share
with friends and family for many
years to come,” said Hospital
Corpsman3rdClass WilliamGib-
son, NOSC Ventura County. “It
was truly an honor to spend time
with them and listen to their in-
credible stories.”
A static display of World War
II memorabilia from Touching
History, a touring military mu-
seum, and a POW/MIApresenta-
tion table set by the NOSC pro-
vided a historical and solemn
atmosphere.
“It’s wonderful to have the
younger military spend time with
our residents,”said Shoreline Ac-
tivities Director JoanPonce. “They
can relate to each other and share
experiences.”
Added Oswald: “There is a very
unique bond between those who
have taken the oath of military
service, regardless of their genera-
tion or age. There is a quiet sense
of kinship and understanding of
commonly shared sacrifices and
challenges endured and over-
come.”
Master of Ceremonies Lyndsey
Hale, wife of Lt. Rondal Hale, an
instructor for the Civil Engineer
Corps Officers School at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hue-
neme, said Dec. 7 was her grand-
father’s birthday, andhe joinedthe
Army two days after the attack on
Pearl Harbor.
“Although he is gone now, I
think of himand our many World
War II veterans every December
7 and howthat moment was such
a tragic call to action,” she said.

“At this point, we anticipate that at least
five Navy boxers will be here training,”
said Kevin Ludwig, who has organized
boxing events on base for the last 15
years.
Among them will be Builder Construc-
tionman Crystal Renfroe of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 5, who stole the
show at the box-off two years ago when
she entered the ring as a local boxer and
defeated a member of the Navy’s official
boxing team, Rhonda McGee, then a mas-
ter-at-arms seaman.
Information Systems Technician 2nd
Class Nicole Saunders, who competed on
last year’s boxing team, also plans to re-
turn.
The three men who currently plan to
attend are new to the team.
Ludwig said problems started last Oc-
tober when the Marines put their boxing
program on hold for six months due to
administrative issues. Then the Navy and
Air Force didn’t have enough qualified
boxers to field a team, so the champion-
ships were canceled.
Until last year, the Army had won the
championships for two decades straight.
Last year, the Marines won.
The location of the armed forces event
had rotated among the four branches of
the military. Naval Base Ventura County
last hosted the event in 2010 and was
scheduled to host it in 2014.
Ludwig said the cancellation of the
championships is bittersweet.
“I think it’s disappointing,”he said. “But
at the same time, this would not have been
a good event for us. There wasn’t a strong
turnout.”
He said the Navy requires all its boxers
to have at least five sanctioned fights before
they start training for the champion-
ships.
However, for the U.S. Nationals, these
less experienced boxers can compete as
novices, so they don’t need the five
fights.
“This way, they can get the experience
and see what it’s all about,” Ludwig said.
The All-Navy Box-Off was scheduled
for Jan. 26 in the Bee-Hive at NBVC Port
Hueneme. Ludwig said the event has been
held for six years and typically draws 500
boxing fans fromthe local community. Ten
boxers attended last year.
The ongoing renovation of the Warfield
Gym would have posed some logistical
problems, Ludwig said. The Warfield shut
down for renovations last year immedi-
ately after the box-off and isn’t expected
to reopen until February.
During the last two box-offs, boxers have
taken a break from training and visited
local schools to chat with students about
their lives and their work. Ludwig said that
could happen again this year while boxers
train for the U.S. Nationals.
Boxing program in military takes a hit

I think it’s
disappointing. But at
the same time, this
would not have been a
good event for us.

On cancellation of Armed Forces Boxing
Championships
the Point Mugu Air Showfeatured the U.S.
Navy Blue Angels jet demonstration team
and NAS Point Mugu home-based squad-
rons. TheseincludedAir Test andEvaluation
Squadron (VX) 4, which flew the F-8 Cru-
sader and F-4B Phantom II, and the Naval
MissileCenter, whichflewA-4Skyhawks and
A-3Skywarriors. Somejets evendroppedlive
bombs to demonstrate an aircraft’s strike
capability.
Civilian air showacts during this time pe-
riod included Dick Schram, “The Flying
Professor,”in his Piper Cub as a comedy act
andFrankTallman, alegendaryHollywood
stunt pilot, flying a bright red World War I
Fokker DR-1 German plane. Tallman was
joinedbyJames Appleby, whoflewaFrench-
made Nieuport Model 28, and they provid-
edaturn-the-clock-backact featuringthetwo
pilots duelingduringthe Space Fair. Schram
and Tallman would later die in air crashes;
Appleby died in 2010 at the age of 86 after
breaking his hip in a fall.
During the 1970s anRF-8 Crusader from
VFP-63 would usually begin the show per-
forming a photoflash loop while puffs of
white smoke and photocharge flares were
ejected fromthe aircraft.
The U.S. Air Force DemonstrationTeam,
theThunderbirds, performedfor thefirst time
during the 1971 Space Fair, flying the Mc-
Donnell Douglas F-4EPhantomII.
That same year, Bob Hoover flewhis yel-
lowand black P-51 Mustang, another high-
light of the show. Just last year, Hoover
helpedthe pilot of a P-51 that ranintotrou-
ble over Mobile, Ala., safely land his plane.
Accordingto“Flying”magazine, thedirector
of the museum that owned the P-51 called
Hoover because “Nobody’s got more time
in a Mustang or knows more about them.”
After the 1974Space Fair, the name of the
event was changed to the Point Mugu Air
Show.
The Royal Air Force sent an MR Mk 1
Nimrod, a maritime reconnaissance aircraft
that flies at highsubsonic speeds, tothe 1979
air show. It was the first andlast appearance
by the Royal Air Force.
Point Muguair shows were amongthe few
toperformlive AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air
and Zuni air-to-ground rocket launch and
bomb-drop demonstrations before an audi-
ence. The 1981 show marked the last time
live missiles were launchedbyPacific Missile
Test Center F-14A’s at an air show.
Air show at Mugu dates to 1960

from her upcoming deployment.
Littlejohn was one of about 45 Sailors
fromNaval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
who was invited to the set of “The Price is
Right,” the long-running CBS game show
hostedby DrewCarey inwhichcontestants
try to guess the price of merchandise. They
joined dozens of other members of the
militaryfor the special Veterans Dayepisode
that aired Nov. 9.
Actual taping took place nearly a month
prior, soonahot September day, the Sailors,
wearing their Service Dress Blues made of
wool, headed down to Los Angeles.
“We didn’t know at that point who’d be
pickedfor the show,”she said. “All we knew
was that they were looking for cheerful
people with lots of personality. I thought,
‘Cheerful with lots of personality? I’m al-
ready that way!’”
InLos Angeles, all the military personnel
were lined up in groups of 15. Each person
was asked two questions: Are you excited
to be here? And what do you like to do for
fun?
“I knewthis was a once-in-a-lifetime mo-
ment,” Littlejohn said. “So I said that yes,
I was excited to be there, and I said I liked
todance. Theyaskedme what kindof dance
I’d do if I went on the show, and I said, ‘I’ll
do whatever dance you want!’
“That got me on the show.”
Littlejohn ended up being the only com-
petitor from the Navy.
“They told us to have poise and to be
professional,” she said, “but I knew from
past episodes that everyone was the total
opposite.”
So when she heard her name and that
trademark “Come on down!” she admits:
“I kind of lost my mind. There’s no name
for the dance that I did. I was just so ex-
cited.”
It was, she said, “pretty epic.”
Thencame the hardpart. The competitors
had to name the correct price for a wine
cooler. ASeabee in the audience suggested
that Littlejohn say $900, and she was about
to do that when the competitor next to her,
having heard the suggestion, beat her to
it.
“So I said $1,100, and I was right on the
nose,” she said.
The next thingshe knew, DrewCarey was
handing her five $100 bills.
“He was very funny,”Littlejohnsaid. “He
was really happy, really nice. He hands me
the money and asks me what I do for the
Navy and I tell himI’ma Seabee construc-
tion worker. Then he quotes John Wayne
in ‘The Fighting Seabees.’ I found out later
he’s prior military.”
Carey served six years in the U.S. Marine
Corps Reserve.
Next, Littlejohn competed in the show-
case —a gas grill anda quad. She wonthat,
but thenlost the wheel spinonthe Showcase
Showdown.
“I was still happy to be on the show,”she
said.
So now she has a wine cooler that she
hasn’t opened yet — “I’ll probably give it
away,” she said — $500 that will cover the
taxes onher winnings anda quadanda gas
grill that are expectedtoarrive by February.
She’ll be deployed then, but her housemate
has promised to take good care of them.
“I’ll put them to good use when I get
back,” Littlejohn says. “I’ve never been on
a quad, but I love dirt-biking. And I was
raised barbecuing. My parents own a bar-
becue restaurant in Berkeley, and to this
day I’d rather grill than cook!”
She said her parents and other relatives
all over the country are proud of her.
Her one regret is that she didn’t give a
shout-out toher housemate, Julia Burchell-
Smith.
“I gave a shout-out to NMCB5, but not
Julia,” she said. “I can’t believe I did
that.”
Maybe some barbecue will make up for
it.
Game show proves lucrative for NMCB 5 Seabee
CONTINUED FROM 1
I kind of lost my
mind. There’s no
name for the dance
that I did. I was just
so excited.
