WHAT’S INSIDE
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
About 75 of the best triathletes
found in the U.S. and Canadian
Armed Forces will be at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Point Mugu Saturday, June 1, to
compete in the Armed Forces
Triathlon.
The Navy, Army, Air Force,
Marines and Canada’s military
forces are each sending 15 triath-
letes to the annual competition.
This is the 14th year NBVC has
hosted it.
Traditionally, before every
Armed Forces Triathlon, the base
puts on the Admiral’s Cup, a
sprint triathlon that is open to the
public and usually draws about
100 competitors. This year, how-
ever, the public event was can-
celed due to funding issues caused
by sequestration.
“Cancellation of the Admiral’s
Cup is a tough one because it of-
ten provided the newcomer to
triathlons a chance to try the
event out to see howthey do with
the three challenges at shorter
distances,” said Fred Morgan,
athletic director for Morale, Wel-
fare and Recreation, which spon-
sors all the athletic competitions

will be filing through Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) next
month as they prepare to deploy
for up to a year in support of the
Global War on Terror.
Naval Mobilization Processing
Site (NMPS) Port Hueneme will
process a group of Reservists
fromNaval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 28 over the
next few weeks. The Seabees will
go through medical processing
and administrative screening.
They will also complete field
training exercises in chemical,
biological and radiological war-
fare and range qualifications.
They will be joined later this
summer by nearly 160 more from
NMCB 26, which recently mobi-
lized through NMPS San Di-

Q: I was driving around base the other day,
and I noticed a lot of really high grass. Why aren’t
grounds maintenance people keeping everything in
“ship shape”?
A: The grass is getting pretty high in some areas,
but it’s not because our maintenance crews are doing
less than their best. Grounds maintenance, including
mowing the grass, is one area that has been greatly
affected by this year’s budget crisis.
Effective June 1, grass will be allowed to grow
a little taller than it is now — up to a foot high for
some species of grass — and in some areas it won’t
be cut at all except as required by fre and safety
regulations along fences, roadways and frebreaks.
Edging will also be a thing of the past under these
new budget constraints, unless required for health
and safety reasons.
One of the most noticeable changes will be in
Military Family Housing. Lawn care will be per-
formed less often, likely six or seven times a year.
Like you, I am used to seeing our facilities
well-groomed and manicured. Pride in ownership
is important, but in today’s budget climate, preserv-
ing funds for our deployed or next-to-deploy units
is the priority. We’ve got to fnd ways to meet our
challenges that are within the rules and guidelines
available.
These are tough times, but we are far tougher.
The grass is just a small indicator of the bigger
picture, but like the grass, this challenge can be
met with a little creative thinking and a lot of elbow
grease. Maybe your Chiefs’ Mess would like to
adopt a facility? What about a yard-of-the-month
contest?
Let me know what suggestions you have! You
can submit via this forum at lighthouse@navy.mil,
online using the CO’s Suggestion Box at http://cnic.
navy.mil/ventura/index.htm or at www.Facebook.
com/NavalBaseVenturaCounty. You can also follow

“Everywhere is walking distance if you
have the time.”
— Steven Wright
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
Walk it off.
Really, walk it off — and while you’re
at it, win some big bucks along the way.
Morale, Welfare and Recreation is spon-
soring another Walk Yourself Fit contest,
but unlike last year’s, no alternate forms
of exercise will count. This one’s all about
walking.
“My grandmother started walking five
miles a day when she was 60. She’s 97 now,
and we don’t know where the heck she is.”
— Ellen DeGeneres
Five-member teams are forming now,
and teamleaders must meet at noon Mon-
day, June 3, at the Bee-Fit Wellness Center
at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hue-
neme. The actual competition starts Mon-
day, June 24, and ends when the first team
accumulates a total of 1,662 miles, the
distance of the California portion of the
Pacific Crest Trail. At that point, which-
ever teams have the next highest numbers
of miles accumulated will win second and
third place — and they’ll split the pot.
The pot is made up of a $50 per team
buy-in. Each teamwill also pay $25 a week
— $5 per person. The winning team will
get 50 percent of whatever has accumu-
lated when the 1,662-mile goal is reached.
The second-place teamwill get 35 percent,
and the third-place team will get 15 per-
cent.
“I like long walks, especially when they
are taken by people who annoy me.”
— Noel Coward
Every step counts. Competitors must
supply their own pedometers and call in
their step count every morning to the team
leader. Weekend totals are due Monday
morning. By noon every Monday, the
team leader must report the team’s total
step count to Ramona Pagel, director of
the Bee-Fit and organizer of the competi-
tion.
“We trust you to provide your team
leader with accurate counts of your steps
so that your team wins honestly,” Pagel
said.
The key number is 3,822,600 steps, the
equivalent of 1,662 miles.
For more information, call Pagel at 982-
2589.

Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding officer of Naval Base Ventura County, asks a question about the equipment in the print screening
classroom at the Regional Occupational Program (ROP) campus in Camarillo.

In one room, five dentist chairs
gleamed.
In another, silk screens, their frames
stained with paint, sat upright, awaiting
a new T-shirt project while earlier efforts
covered some classroom walls.
A third room was filled with hospital
beds.
Job-training classes have come a long
way from the auto shops and wood shops
today’s adults knew in high school — and
they were an eye-opener for Capt. Larry
Vasquez, commanding officer of Naval
Base Ventura County.
“This is not your dad’s shop class — or
mine,” Vasquez said after serving as prin-
cipal for a day of the Ventura County Of-
fice of Education’s Regional Occupation-
al Program (ROP) Wednesday, May 15.
Vasquez spent much of the morning
touring classrooms at the ROP campus at
the Camarillo Airport, then visited ROP

Kecia Ciccotti, the teen coordinator for the Naval Base Ventura County teen centers at Point Mugu, Port Hueneme and Camarillo, looks
over an anti-bullying poster and one of the paper butterflies made for the Museum of Tolerance’s Butterfly Project, which recognizes the
1.5 million children and teens who lost their lives during the Holocaust.
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
It happens every day in America —every
7 seconds, in fact.
A boy on the playground is teased for
having a belly. A girl walking home gets
a nasty text message. A third-grader sud-
denly doesn’t want to go to school one
morning, and Mom can’t figure out why.
An eighth-grader begs to be driven to his
first-period class; he’s afraid he’ll be
punched on the bus.
At Naval Base Ventura County, teenag-
ers are saying, “Enough.”
Working with a curriculum sponsored
by the Bully Project, a campaign inspired
by the 2011 documentary “Bully,” nearly
two dozen teenagers who regularly visit
the teen centers at Point Mugu, Port Hue-
neme and the Catalina Heights housing
complex in Camarillo are learning what
it takes to stop what too many adults still
think is harmless banter and joking
around.
Coordinator Kecia Ciccotti is running
the programthat has included a screening
of the documentary, discussions about
being an “upstander” as opposed to a
“bystander,” the impact of cyberbullying
and a trip to the Museum of Tolerance in
Los Angeles.
“Some of this has been very emotional,”
said Ciccotti. “Someone broke down
watching the documentary, and others
started crying when we talked about it
afterwards.
“I think it’s awesome that they have that
heart — that they recognize that this is a
problem and that they can do something
about it.”
Ciccotti believes that teens are more
aware of the problem than their parents
and educators, many of whom survived
bullying themselves and figure the kids
can too.
Then again, she adds, there are plenty
of teens who also don’t stand up to bullies,
mostly because they’ve been victimized for
so long they don’t even know what bully-
ing is anymore.
“Moreover, many parents have no idea
about cyberbullying and how extensive it
is,”Ciccotti said. “We talk a lot about that
— about harmful texts and how to deal
with them.”
Ciccotti has been the teen coordinator
for about nine months. A Navy spouse,
she spent 11 years teaching seventh and
eighth graders in New York and Con-
necticut, where she experienced bullying
firsthand nearly every day of the week.
“Bullying was the norm,” she said. “I
taught in an urban environment, where
there was drug and alcohol use in the sixth
grade, where many families had at least
one parent in jail. There were huge chal-
lenges.”
She agrees that Ventura County isn’t
inner-city NewYork, but she bristles when
asked if the topic of bullying and its Ul-
timate Form — the Holocaust — might
be too sensitive for a 13-year-old who just

The last day of school is near. Summer
plans are under way. Vacations, beach trips
and barbecues with friends make for won-
derful ways to spend summer vacation.
However, fun and sun doesn’t need to
mean that learning ceases.
According to Johns Hopkins Univer-
sity, students suffer learning loss during
the summer months, also known as “the
summer slide.” A typical student will lose
about one month of learning, with disad-
vantaged or struggling students losing
even more.
To ensure that your student is prepared
to return to school, a summer reading
program can act as a bridge between
school years.
High school students in honors and
Advanced Placement (AP) classes may not
have an option. Summer reading is typi-
cally assigned, with an assignment due the
first day of class. However, all other stu-
dents will also benefit greatly by taking
advantage of the summer months, free
from full-time school, and logging some
reading hours.
In addition to programs possibly offered
by your child’s schools, local libraries of-
fer summer reading programs. Encourag-
ing children to log reading hours, the
number of pages or books read, these
programs keep children interested in learn-
ing. Summer reading programparticipants
check in regularly and earn incentives for
their reading accomplishments. Offering
these programs in a library gives children
access to a wide selection of reading choic-
es.
An enthusiastic approach to reading will
encourage a lifelong love of reading. To
encourage enthusiasm for reading, public
libraries will often have story hours, lit-
eracy activities, arts and crafts and special
events. Participating in these offerings will
allow children to see reading not as a
school assignment, but as an opportunity
to experience and learn about wonderful
new adventures.
If students suffer learning loss during
the summer, it is important to know what
they will gain from a reading program.
The School Library Journal reports that
“about 33 percent of summer reading par-
ticipants were more likely to read above
grade level, compared to about 18 percent
of nonparticipants.”
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
has stated, “A key step toward stopping
the summer slide is the development and
launch of high-quality programs that take
advantage of time outside the school day
and year to help children learn, grow, and
develop.”
Please visit your local library soon to
see what summer reading program will be
offered.
In addition, Scholastic is offering an
Internet-based summer reading challenge.
Students can participate in weekly chal-
lenges, earn digital rewards, enter sweep-
stakes and find great books to read. The
Scholastic website —www.scholastic.com
— has free reading tips, booklists broken
down by age categories, printable reading
logs and more. Scholastic even has a mo-
bile app so kids can log minutes on the go
or during travel.

opportunities in the Ventura County area or

Worship schedule
I had the privilege of participating in
a field training exercise (FTX) as the
chaplain of Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 3 for two weeks in
May.
During the exercise, I watched the
troops’ expressions change from comfort
to sheer survival. The exercise pushed all
of them to their limits. Only the taran-
tulas and snakes were comfortable during
FTX!
However, as I watched the troops re-
spond to the uncomfortable living condi-
tions and long days with determination
and a can-do attitude, I was reminded
of Paul’s words to Timothy in 2 Timothy
2:3-4: “Share in suffering as a good sol-
dier of Christ Jesus. No soldier gets en-
tangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim
is to please the one who enlisted him.”
In order for Sailors and Soldiers
(troops) to succeed, they must keep them-
selves from becoming entangled in the
hardships of their duty and complete the
task for the approval of their superiors,
just as Christ expects Christians to serve
Him by giving their best for His glory.
What a powerful spiritual lesson!
The Apostle Paul was fond of the
military. He often uses military terms and
metaphors to help explain the Christian
life.
The truth is we are involved in a spir-
itual battle against evil. In Ephesians
5:11-17, Paul admonishes the believer to
put on the “whole armor of God” since
our enemy is not visible and his weapons
are spiritual, not material.
The armor of Paul’s day is vastly an-
tiquated compared to our Kevlar. But I
imagine the Roman soldiers were just as
uncomfortable in their armor as we were
in ours in the field. Carrying 50 or 60
pounds of gear while setting up tents or
building a 15-foot timber tower is not
comfortable — especially with extreme
heat! Many times the troops wanted to
set down their gear to make their jobs
easier, but the enemy threat, although
notional, required us all to keep our ar-
mor on while we worked.
I believe that God expects us to wear
our spiritual armor — just as we wore
our Kevlar regardless of how uncomfort-
able we felt — because the enemy threat
demands proper protection.
The decision to lay down our protec-
tion is easy if we do not sense the pres-
ence of our enemy, but God says that the
devil is a roaring lion walking about and
looking to devour us (1 Pt. 5:8).
If we as believers are not vigilant, we
will become complacent towards our
enemy and go many days without putting
on our spiritual armor. If you think the
devil isn’t looking for a chance to ruin
your relationship with God or with oth-
ers, you are deceived!
Take refuge in the protection God has
provided. Realize that you can get the
job done while wearing your “gear,” just
as the men and women of NMCB 3
proved that they could get the job done
anytime or anyplace.
You will always find protection in the
truth from God.
Lessons in spirituality can be found on the battlefield

Are you having a baby, or do you know
someone who is?
The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society
(NMCRS) offers a free Budget for Baby
class once a month. This seminar is run
by volunteers and is designed to educate
new and expecting parents who want to
learn about the financial impact brought
about by a new baby.
Learn how to budget for the “needs
versus wants”that come with your newest
addition. Will you buy new or used furni-
ture? Do you really need the top-of-the-
line car seat? Can you get baby or mater-
nity clothes fromsomeone who is finished
with them?
One thing you’ll learn in the class is that
the NMCRS Thrift Shop sells baby clothes
— some like new — starting at just 25
cents.
You’ll also find out what financial as-
sistance may be available to you. You’ll
get tips that may help you decide whether
you’ll be working or be a stay-at-home
mom, and you’ll learn about the costs of
various types of child care. Every mom-
or dad-to-be receives a free layette valued
at $150, filled with a coordinated set of
bedding and clothing, bibs, parenting
magazines and a handmade baby blanket
crocheted by an NMCRS volunteer.
The next Budget for Baby class is sched-
uled for June 4 from 6 to 7 p.m. Call 805-
982-4409 to sign up, or check the NMCRS
Facebook page to find out the dates of
future classes.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (NNS) — Members of Team
Navy joined with their competitors — as well as family and friends
— to commemorate the successful conclusion of the 2013 Warrior
Games May 16 at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs,
Colo.
“Congratulations to all of the 2013 Warrior Games competi-
tors,” said Charlie Huebner, chief of Paralympics for the United
States Olympic Committee, while addressing the crowd at closing
ceremonies. “While we celebrate medals, this competition is re-
ally an example of how sport can change lives. We hope these
service members and veterans don’t stop here. The goal is for
them to return home and get involved in sport programs in their
communities.”
Team Navy, which trains for the Warrior Games at Naval Base
Ventura County, earned a total of 23 medals at the 2013 event,
including eight gold, five silver and 10 bronze medals. Team Navy
achieved third place in the final team standings; it was bested by
Team Marines, which received the Warrior Games Chairman’s
Cup for the fourth consecutive year, and Team Army.
This was a ground-breaking year for Team Navy. The team had
more female competitors than ever before, including its first-ever
female Ultimate Champion contender, Navy Chief Gunner’s Mate
Jeannette Tarqueno. Also, for the first time since the inception
of the Warrior Games, a female won a gold medal in a shooting
event — Team Navy’s Lt. j.g. Laura Root.
Team Navy also took home more gold medals than ever before
in field events, throwing several lifetime-bests during the track
and field competition.

Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP) hosted the 2nd An-
nual Youth Track & Field Meet at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme’s new track complex outside the Bee-
Hive Gym Saturday, May 18.
“The weather was great for our track meet,” said Anthony
Unchangco, Youth Sports and Fitness coordinator. “There were
smiles on a lot of sweaty faces, and by the end of the day each
participant had a medal around their neck!”
More than 45 youngsters 5 to 12 years old took part in the
meet, which was a culmination of six weeks of learning various
events and practicing their skills.
Coaches Lumana Seide, James Thime, Nicole Sasek and Ted
Meczywor led the six-week programand were extremely pleased
with the results.
“These kids worked hard during our practices and got the
opportunity to learn about some field events like shot put, dis-
cus and javelin throwing, which they are not regularly exposed
to,” Meczywor said. “The parents and families were supportive
as well during the meet, as we would not have been able to pull
it off without their help.”
All participants in the youth track program received a track
jersey and a medal.
Sign-ups for they 2014 CYP track season will take place next
March.
Currently, sign-ups are being taken for youth basketball, a
July and August program for children 4 to 12 years old, and for
Adventure Sports Camps, which will be held weekly throughout
the summer for 10- to 14-year-olds.

NMCB 3
FORT HUNTER LIGGETT — More than 550
Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battal-
ion (NMCB) 3 kicked off a field training exercise
(FTX) May 9 to battle-test their collective motto
of Construimus, Battuimus, or “We Build, We
Fight,” in Central California.
For roughly three weeks across the 165,000 acres
of Fort Hunter Liggett’s rugged terrain, FTX
tested NMCB 3’s ability to enter hostile locations,
build assigned construction projects and defend
against enemy attacks.
“The FTX is what we use to evaluate our skills
and perfect our tactical proficiencies,” said NMCB
3 Command Master Chief Percy Trent. “This is
our step-off point. We need to be ready for deploy-
ment, and this exercise makes that happen.”
Seabee deployments are task-tailored and in-
clude missions ranging from drilling water wells
in Cambodia to working in Afghanistan alongside
combat Marines.
“We need to ensure our tactical skills reflect the
same focus we place in our construction abilities,”
Trent said.
These contingency-based missions place high
stakes on a battalion whose average age ranges
between 19 and 20 years old. These men and
women are trained in their basic area of construc-
tion and engineering, then receive defensive com-
bat training mirrored off the Marine Corps.
During FTX, Seabees demonstrate to evaluators
from Naval Construction Group (NCG) 1 how to
safely operate the M4 and M16 semi-automatic
rifles, the M240B and Mk2 .50-caliber machine
guns and the Mk19 grenade launcher. These weap-
ons systems are employed in a variety of scenar-
ios during a multitude of operations, all demon-
strating NMCB 3’s ability to develop warfighters,
empower them to embrace an “always ready”
mindset and deploy them forward to dangerous
areas.
“It’s a total evaluation of everything we do, and
that’s good,” said Lt. Cmdr. Susanne Wienrich,
NMCB 3’s executive officer. “We need that. We
are trusted to do a very specific and difficult job.
It’s important we do it right.”
Wearing reflective white bands around their
uniform hats, more than 80 NCG 1 Seabees eval-
uate each block of training, including safety, en-
vironmental, medical and health concerns; defen-
sive combat tactics and convoy operations; camp
setup, communications, construction techniques;
and supply replenishments in the field.
“If they fail, we fail,” said Builder 1st Class Jo-
seph McFadden, NCG 2’s safety evaluator. “That’s
our motto. We aren’t here to mess with them or
make things hard. We want them to pass.”
To ensure NMCB 3’s training and evaluation is
as complete as possible, NCG 1 employs “aggres-
sors.” These Seabees act as the enemy using pro-
jectile-free ammunitions, or blanks, to attack
NMCB 3’s defensive patrols, convoys or guards
manning the simulated base’s entry control point
(ECP). All troops must correctly employ the cor-
rect defensive tactics that successfully display their
knowledge of the rules of engagement, safety and
other criteria fundamental to protecting them-
selves, their site and their shipmate.
Aggressors test Seabees’ reactive capabilities by
ambushing NMCB 3 during defensive foot patrols
and convoys. They act as snipers and also pose as
civilians trying to gain access to the base.
The FTX scenarios are realistic and require fo-
cused decision-making by all troops. Passing FTX
is on par with some of the most arduous training
events conducted in the military. Unlike most parts
of the Navy, Seabees manage small and large weap-
ons systems, operate armored tactical vehicles and
employ large-load construction equipment in hos-
tile environments. As a battalion, these duties are
performed simultaneously, turning the entire pro-
cess of completing either FTX or a deployment
into a meticulous ballet of purposeful action, in-
telligent decision-making and poise under fire.
“When a battalion passes FTX, I’m proud they
can go out, do their job and return home safe,”
McFadden said. “It’s tough out here, but it’s
tougher on deployment. This is where we get it
right. We are all Seabees. We are expected to suc-
ceed and will always get the job done.”

NMCB 3
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3’s embedded mental health clini-
cian spent three days with the battalion dur-
ing its field training exercise (FTX) at Fort
Hunter Liggett in Central California May 13-
16.
Kimberly Tazagouzit was hired by Navy
Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC)
to fill a staff position with NMCB 3 and help
ensure warfighter readiness.
“NECC wanted us to be a part of the team,”
said Tazagouzit. “It’s stressful balancing
home, family and operational responsibilities.
I’m here to help keep [Seabees] in the fight by
being a person they can talk to.”
With two decades of behavioral health and
emergency mental health experience for both
hospital staff and first responders, Tazagouz-
it said the opportunity to place herself in the
same shoes as the people she is trying to help
was essential.
“For me, it was important to come out here
and show camaraderie,” said Tazagouzit. “To
be able to experience what they are experienc-
ing gives me more insight and helps me ef-
fectively talk about what is going on with that
troop.”
Tazagouzit spent three days with the Sea-
bees experiencing firsthand chemical, bio-
logical and radiological simulated attacks,
intruders in camp exercises and defensive
combat action drills — all routine experi-
ences for Seabees during FTX.
“NMCB 3 is doing great!” said Tazagouzit.
“[They are] very focused on the mission. I am
very proud to be attached to the Seabees.”

Kimberly Tazagouzit, a staff mental health professional with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3, speaks with HM3 Cale Vandertuin after a mass casualty drill at Forward Operating Base
Wolfe.
The FTX is what we use to evaluate our skills and perfect our tactical proficiencies. This is our
step-off point. We need to be ready for deployment, and this exercise makes that happen. We need
to ensure our tactical skills reflect the same focus we place on our construction abilities.
— NMCB 3 Command Master Chief Percy Trent

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
The Department of the Navy states that
military families move every 2.9 years.
With the fast-paced lifestyle we all lead,
combined with orders often being issued
a few months to a few weeks before de-
parture date, being organized is your No.
1 priority when it comes time to your Per-
manent Change of Station (PCS) move.
The military has created some informa-
tive websites that will help throughout the
process.
• First, check out www.militaryinstalla-
tions.com and www.militaryonesource.
com/moving. These sites will answer all
the questions you have about your new
duty station, as well as give contact infor-
mation and links to other valuable web-
sites. On the Military One Source page,
there is a link for Plan My Move. Here,
you can create a detailed checklist of
things that must be done before you PCS.
Just plug in your current duty station, your
future duty station and when you plan to
depart — it does the rest!
• Next, go to your nearest Fleet &Fam-
ily Support Center and speak to a reloca-
tion specialist. You can sign up for the
“Smooth Move” class, where you’ll learn
how to spend wisely on your PCS, what
kind of entitlements you can expect, how
to keep TRICARE up to date, whom to
contact if you have school-aged children
and the difference between having the
Navy move you or doing it yourself under
a Personally Procured Move (PPM), for-
mally known as a DITY move. You can’t
afford to not attend this class.
• Third, once you have orders in hand,
you can set up your move on Move.mil.
Personal Property and the FFSCcan pro-
vide a quick guide to this website.
Moving is a perfect time to go through
all of your belongings and purge items
that have been in a box since your last PCS
move. Tired of looking at that old, worn
out coffee table? Participate in Lincoln
Housing’s Rummage Sale, put it on Craig-
slist, sell it at a your own garage sale or
let any of the new Sailors at your com-
mand know that you have some old fur-
niture that you’d like to unload.
If you are a Navy spouse, this is the
perfect time to create or update your re-
sume. Whether you are looking at going
back to work or wanting a jumpstart at
finding your next job, this is the perfect
time! The FFSC can help you create a
resume or update your current one.
There are many hidden costs that come
with moving. For example, the military
will ship your car to your next duty station
only if it is OCONUS —overseas, outside
the continental United States. That means
that if you have orders to go from Port
Hueneme to Norfolk, Va., you’d better to
ready for a road trip! This is the ideal time
to sit down with an FFSC financial coun-
selor and review your spending.
If you have school-aged children, you’re
probably wondering about the switch in
schools. School Liaison Officer Monica
James, who can be reached at 805-989-
5211, can help with any school-related
question.

Specialist Brittany Barton at 805-982-3726

Many of the 500-plus Reserve Seabees
who are shipping out of Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme next
month will have spent at least one night in
the newly remodeled Navy Gateway Inns
and Suites (NGIS) on base — and it’s a
good bet their future accommodations
won’t be quite so, well, accommodating.
Enjoli Shaheed took over as site man-
ager last year after running private hotels
in Ventura and oversawthe $367,000 reno-
vation.
“I think people who travel to our NGIS
will be blown away,”she said. “We’ve made
some huge progress.”
Shaheed compares the current basic
rooms to those of a moderately priced ho-
tel in town — “perhaps a Hampton Inn,”
she said.
She compares the remodeled VIP and A
suites to a timeshare, with a separate bed-
room area and a kitchen with two-burner
stove, refrigerator, microwave, freezer, dish-
washer, toaster and utensils.
“Our main goal is to provide housing to
military members traveling for military
reasons,” she explained. “After that, we’re
looking for leisure travelers.”
Accommodations run from $28 a night
for a room with a shared bath to $85 for a
VIP suite.
At Port Hueneme, NGISoffers 356 units,
including 102 two-bedroomtownhomes in
the Midway complex that can accommo-
date families and that go for $75 a night.
Thirty-six suites at Port Hueneme were
renovated — 12 of them VIP suites and
24 of them A suites, which have a queen
bed and pullout couch and go for $75 a
night.
NGIS also has 176 units at Point Mugu
and 88 on San Nicolas Island.
Shaheed is especially proud of the en-
ergy-efficient features in the remodeled
rooms. Room keys must be inserted into
a special slot for the lights to turn on and
for the heating and cooling systems to
work, guaranteeing that there won’t be
any energy wasted in an empty room.
The facility also offers a 24-hour coffee
bar and free newspaper, and outside
there’s a children’s playground, a gazebo
and barbecues.
NGIS is also looking to offer holiday
specials, as it did for the Super Bowl. It
has a standing “romance package” for
$99 a night that includes roses, chocolates
and aromatherapy shower tablets.
NGIS is open to active-duty military
members, retirees, military Reservists,
Defense Department civilians with valid
common access card and military depen-
dents. Any of these people can also spon-
sor non-military personnel in up to 10
rooms.
To make reservations, call Port Huen-
eme at 805-982-6025 or Point Mugu at
805-989-8287.
Navy Gateway Inns & Suites remodeled for summer
Site Director Enjoli Shaheed shows one of the remodeled suites
in the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites complex at Naval Base Ventura
County, Port Hueneme.
With two-burner stoves, microwaves and dishwashers, the kitchens
in the newly remodeled suites were designed with timeshares in
mind.

to lessons learned during Operations
Desert Shield and Desert Storm,
NMPSs create centralized, standard-
ized processing for mobilizing Reserv-
ists.
The last time a large group of Re-
servists was processed through NMPS
Port Hueneme was in May of 2012.
The site was then deactivated due to
a projected reduction in mobilization
requirements, with an agreement to
reactivate this summer for one last
major event: the mobilization of
NMCB 28.
Lt. Cmdr. Karl Zamora, NMPS Port
Hueneme’s officer-in-charge, is over-
seeing this mobilization, which he
expects will be the last for Port Hue-
neme.
He sees the current mobilization as
a three-pronged project.
“First we need to reactivate the
site,” he explained.
That means staffing all stations —
medical, legal, pay and other admin-
istrative issues, gas mask and uniform
fittings — with a combination of
NMPS personnel from San Diego and
Reservists from Commander, Navy
Installations Command (CNIC) head-
quarters.
Then comes the actual mobilization
processing of the Seabees from NMCB
28, followed by the final deactivation
and official closure of the site.
At its height, NMPS Port Hueneme
processed approximately 150 Sailors
a week. In comparison, NMPS Nor-
folk in Virginia processes 250 a week
“and can likely do more,” Zamora
said.
Once they begin arriving at Port
Hueneme in early June, the Reservists
will spend a week going through a
complete medical exam and making
sure they have all their personal af-
fairs — including wills and powers of
attorney — in order. Their active duty
pay accounts will be established. They
will be briefed on sexual assault pre-
vention. Finally, they will be fitted for
uniforms and other gear, including gas
masks, and trained in their proper
use.
“I have them for one week, and in
that time, my staff and I have to make
sure that all these requirements are
met,” Zamora said.
The duration of the Reservists’ de-
ployment orders often vary. In this
case, most will be deployed for 270 or
more days. They could be called back
early; they could be reassigned to a
different mission during that time;
they could be ordered to stay lon-
ger.
“You just never know,” said Zamo-
ra, who adds that he has a special
respect for Reservists.
“These people really want to serve
their country,” he said. “They come
from all over, and most have a civilian
occupation that they’re leaving for an
extended period of time. It’s tough.”
With the Reservists not yet on base,
Zamora already had high praise for
the personnel who have stepped up to
create space and accommodate the
short-term guests. The medical team
at Naval Branch Health Clinic, Per-
sonnel Support Detachment, the Fleet
& Family Support Center, Navy Gate-
way Inns & Suites, Naval Construc-
tion Group 1 — dozens of entities and
individuals are coming together to
make this mobilization successful,
Zamora said.
Additional planning to feed and
entertain the sudden influx of Sailors
is also in the works, with Morale, Wel-
fare & Recreation staff working the
details. Staffing at the food venues
nearest the mobilization site — in-
cluding the galley and golf course
dining options — will be adjusted to
account for the extra traffic.
“There might be longer lines at
lunch time at some of the facilities,”
said Deborah Williams, community
support program site manager, “but
we’re working to reduce that impact
and make sure everyone has what they
need.”
“This is a collective team effort to
pull this off,” Zamora added. “My
role is simply to be the cop at the in-
tersection, directing eight lanes of
traffic.”

By Lt. Cmdr. Charles Kubic
UCT 2 commanding officer
Underwater ConstructionTeam
(UCT) 2 recently completed a
diver training exercise in Califor-
nia’s High Sierra, designed to
increase the team’s cold-weather
and altitude-diving expertise.
Members of Construction Div-
ing Detachment (CDD) Bravo
spent 10 days in Bridgeport train-
ing at the Marine Corps Moun-
tain Warfare Training Center,
where they learned and exercised
skills such as cold-weather sur-
vival, mountain medicine, cold-
weather diving and altitude div-
ing, including both SCUBA and
surface-supplied diving opera-
tions.
Occupying 46,000 acres of Toi-
yabe National Forest with eleva-
tions ranging from6,000 to12,000
feet, the training center conducts
unit and individual courses to
prepare Marines and joint and
allied forces for operations in
mountainous, high-altitude and
cold-weather environments. The
center is also involved in the de-
velopment of warfighting doc-
trine and specialized equipment
for use in mountain and cold-
weather operations.
During the winter season, from
October to April, snowaccumula-
tion can reach 6 to 8 feet. The
annual temperature at the center
ranges from20 degrees belowzero
in the winter to 90 degrees Fahr-
enheit in the summer.
Before getting into the water,
the detachment was required to
undergo a pre-environmental
training course designed to pro-
vide Sailors and Marines with the
tools they need to survive in the
strenuous mountain environ-
ment.
“The best part was not only
utilizing UCT’s arctic dive gear
but the pre-environmental train-
ing course of instruction provid-
ed by Marine Corps staff,” said
Construction Mechanic 1st Class
James Richardson. “They covered
topics such as cold-weather and
altitude medicine, first aid, moun-
tain survival, mountain weather
and equipment.”
The dive portion of the exercise
focused on honing the detach-
ment’s skills to establish and sus-
tain a camp that supported diving
operations in a mountain environ-
ment as well as the use of special
dive gear designed to operate in
intense cold environments.
CDDBravo used both dry div-
ing suits and hot-water diving
suits to keep divers warm in the
water. The hot-water suit is used
during surface-supplied diving
operations and employs a hot wa-
ter heater and 600 feet of hose to
push hot water into the diver’s wet
suit.
“It felt like diving in a Jacuzzi,”
said Builder 2nd Class Andrew
Quiroga.
Utilitiesman 2nd Class Joshua
Noel said he was most interested
in the effects of altitude.
“Learning how altitude not
only affects the equipment but
also the diver was by far the best
learning experience,” he said.
The mountain environment
provided multiple opportunities
for valuable training. “Most of
the divers in CDD/B have never
dove at altitude. It was just a
chapter we studied in the dive
manual but never implemented in
an applicable manner,”remarked
Construction Mechanic 1st Class
Trevor Buckett. “Now that we
have gone, we are all very familiar
with altitude protocol.”
The detachment also had the
opportunity to evaluate the com-
mand’s equipment for use in aus-
tere cold-weather conditions.
“It gave us the opportunity to
find our weakness and be that
much more ready to execute in a
wartime situation if called upon,”
said the detachment’s officer in
charge, Chief Construction Me-
chanic Adam Winters.
CDD Bravo will deploy this
summer to support operations
around the Pacific.

on base. “The on-base personnel and
public enjoyed and looked forward to
the event but understand the fiscal
challenges that we have.”
The Armed Forces Triathlon was
scheduled, approved and budgeted last
year and therefore was not affected by
sequestration.
Without the Admiral’s Cup, the
Armed Forces event can now begin
earlier.
Competition will start this year at 9
a.m., and everyone with base access is
welcome to watch at NBVC Point Mu-
gu’s Family Beach, just down from the
Beach Motel.
The first leg of the Armed Forces
Triathlon is a 1,500-meter (approxi-
mately one-mile) swim. It is followed
by a 40-kilometer (24.8-mile) draft le-
gal bike ride and a 10-kilometer (6.2-
mile) run.
Last year, despite cold ocean waters
and a solid wind on the bike course,
the Navy men’s team took the gold
medal. The top two finishers were from
the Army, but the Navy took the next
several spots, culminating in the
gold.
In the women’s competition, Capt.
Kathy Rakel of the Air Force took first
place for the third year in a row. The
Air Force took gold, the Marines took
silver and the Navy took bronze.
Morgan said NBVC is proud to be
the venue for not only the Armed Forc-
es Triathlon, but also many other
militarywide competitions, and for be-
ing a training center for wounded war-
riors in the Navy and Coast Guard.
“Since the early 1990s, NBVC has
made quite a name for itself hosting
almost all Armed Forces sports, such
as track and field, boxing, basketball,
softball and Navy training camps and
for pioneering the Navy/Coast Guard
Wounded Warrior Sports Disability
Program,” Morgan said. “We benefit
in a few ways. Our interested local
military members get a chance to make
the team. Navy Gateway Inns & Suites
rooms are used, as are our galleys. And
equipment stays with us after the event.
Plus, there’s the base recognition.”

triathlon at Point mugu
roP program offers nurse, dental assistant training
tant, nursing, screen-printing and
graphic design facilities, and at
Buena, he visited the auto shop
and classrooms filled with ma-
chine tool technology, cabinet-
making technology and video
production equipment.
“These students are gaining
some real skills that they can use
right after graduation,” Vasquez,
clearly impressed, said after the
tours. “If they don’t want to go to
college right after high school,
they can work for awhile, or they
canmake some extra money while
they’re in college.”
For the day, Vasquez was stand-
ing in for Robert Wismann, who
led the tours and briefed the com-
manding officer on the program,
which has an enrollment of 3,200
students from nearly every high
school in Ventura County.
Wismann stressed that the pro-
gram he oversees dovetails with
college-prep curriculum; it doesn’t
have to be a substitute. Students
can get basic training in a field
they’re interested in, then go on to
college and work part-time or
holdontothe skills andhave some
practical experience after they get
a degree.
“It’s like the Navy without the
uniform,” Vasquez commented.
Wismann agreed, but added
that some of the students wear
“uniforms” of a sort — students
learning about medical careers, for
example, wear scrubs.
“We want them to dress in
what’s appropriate and identify
themselves as nurses, welders,
whatever,” Wismann said. “That
way, they get engaged in the ca-
reer.”
ROP is open to high school ju-
niors and seniors, and some class-
es accept Adult Education stu-
dents. Bus transportation to and
from local high schools is pro-
vided to the Camarillo facility
during school hours; some night
classes are offered, but there is no
bus transportation provided.
ROP classes are also offered on
nearly every high school campus.
Nordhoff High School in Ojai of-
fers five classes, including one in
emergency first response. Oak
Park High School has six classes,
including one in sports medicine.
Ventura High has nine, including
floral design, landscaping and ro-
botics. Three schools have culinary
arts courses, and five offer video
production.
Vasquez liked the fact that stu-
dents could attend their own high
school, then travel to the Camaril-
lo center for classes.
“They’re still maintaining their
identity with their own school,”
he said. “They graduate fromtheir
own high school, but with these
great skills, and they can still be
college-bound.”
With manufacturing jobs com-
ing back to the United States,
programs like this will be espe-
cially important in the future,
Wismann and Vasquez agreed.
“We get calls fromlocal employ-
ers looking for workers with basic
skills,” Wismann said. “All the
time we hear, ‘We need skilled la-
bor now.’ Companies knowthese
kids are trainable and that they
have a history of responsibility
and dependability.”

wants to hang out at a Na-
val Base Ventura County
teen center.
“I think we have a social
obligation to help today’s
kids,” she said. “This isn’t
just a place to chill after
school. We can do our part
to foster social interaction,
leadership and character
development. We can have
conversations about this,
and we can address their
concerns in something
more than a 5-minute chat
after school.”
Nineteen teens who were
on spring break from
school traveled with teen
center staff to the Museum
of Tolerance in early April.
When they returned, they
worked on their additions
to the Butterfly Project, an
effort by the museum to
collect 1.5 million paper
butterflies to represent the
1.5 million children and
teens who lost their lives
in the Holocaust.
“The butterfly is a sym-
bol of hope, freedom and
beauty,” Ciccotti ex-
plained. “It captures in-
nocence.”
The teen centers will be
sending the butterflies to
the museum to be added
to its exhibit.
After “Bully” was shown
to the teens a few weeks
later, Ciccotti provided a
similar outlet: The teens
could leave a message and
sign a poster they created
to help in their fight to
eliminate bullying.
“There’s no question it’s
a difficult topic,” Ciccotti
said. “But I think the teens
appreciate this opportu-
nity to talk about it try to
do something about it.”

Referrals made

affected; backlog
caused by change in
delivery system
TRICARE Prime enrollees
have experienced longer than
usual wait times for authoriza-
tions of healthcare referrals since
the start of healthcare delivery
April 1 under a new contract in
the TRICARE West Region with
UnitedHealthcare Military &
Veterans.
Sailors and their families may
have also experienced difficulty
reaching call centers due to high
call volume.
While UnitedHealthcare is
working to make improvements,
TRICARE Management Activ-
ity (TMA) has acted to reduce
the impact on TRICARE Prime
enrollee access to specialty
healthcare through a temporary
authorization waiver. The waiv-
er applies to referrals made from
April 1 through June 18.
TRICARE Prime enrollees
should speak with their primary
care manager (PCM). Visit www.
uhcmilitarywest.com or www.
tricare.mil/westtransition for
more information.
There are two key things you
should know about the waiver
process:
• To qualify, your provider
must give you a written referral
to a network specialist for a TRI-
CARE-covered benefit and a
copy of a written waiver letter
available from the provider sec-
tion at www.uhcmilitarywest.
com.
• Once your PCM has provided
you the documents needed for a
referral, you can set up your own
appointment or get assistance
from your PCM or your military
hospital or clinic.
• While the waiver is in place,
TRICARE Prime enrollees will
not be able to see the status of
referrals through UnitedHealth-
care’s Web portal. If you have
questions, call UnitedHealthcare
directly or have your PCM call
UnitedHealthcare at 1-877-988-
9378.
The TRICARE Regional Of-
fice-West is working closely with
UnitedHealthcare, military hos-
pitals and clinics and PCMs to
address concerns, reduce the
backlog of referrals and ensure
that you receive quality health
care in a timely manner. We ask
that you continue to be patient
during this busy time. United-
Healthcare call center hours have
been extended. You can reach
UnitedHealthcare at 1-877-988-
9378 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
