THIS ONE’S FOR YOU

Naval Base Ventura County lets
her 1-year-old daughter, Athena,
get her first peek at a horse.

would stop Steele seconds later. The Dalmatian freely roamed the
crowd as the Clydesdales were being groomed and prepped for their
stroll through the NEX parking lot.

Exchange, part of a customer appreciation event Saturday, June 29. Story, photos, Pages 16-17.
The one-day-a-week furlough
is now under way, with an esti-
mated 5,000-plus civilians at Na-
val Base Ventura County (NBVC)
experiencing a 20 percent cut in
hours and pay for the next 11
weeks.
The furlough took effect the
week of July 8. It was up to indi-
vidual commands to decide what
day each week affected civilians
would be prohibited fromcoming
to work.
Because of the furlough, the
Port Hueneme Commissary is
now closed Mondays, and the
Seabee Museum is closed Sun-
days and Mondays.
In addition, the Naval Branch
Health Clinic Port Hueneme is
no longer accepting primary care
appointments past 4 p.m., al-
though this is due to a combined
impact of the furlough and an
unrelated staffing shortage.

Question: With the civilians taking a 20 percent
pay cut due to the furlough, money is going to be very
tight. Could you open the galley so affected employees
have a cheap, local meal option? It would be great for
morale — and our budgets.
Answer: Civilians are critical to the Navy’s mis-
sion, particularly here at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC), where nearly two-thirds of the workforce are
non-military members. I know that the furlough, which
is affecting thousands here at NBVC, is a major blow
to budgets and morale. I value your input and your
dedication to the nation, and I thank you for your sug-
gestion.
However, it is not within my authority as an instal-
lation commander to authorize civilians to use the gal-
ley. CNICINST 4061.1 outlines authorization to mess
in ashore galleys, such as the facilities at Point Mugu
and Port Hueneme, and civilian employees are not
authorized, with very few exceptions. Special meals are
one of those exceptions and have been suspended due
to budgetary constraints. The Naval Supply Systems
Command Food Service Management publication 486
goes one step further, saying that opening galleys to
feed civilians is “contrary to the congressional intent
for funding the feeding of Sailors.”
I know that Department of Defense civilians across
the country are bearing a heavy burden during the cur-
rent budget crisis while we all work to ensure the con-
tinued success of our nation’s armed forces. We have
gotten through other hardships, and we will weather
this one as well. Thanks for your continued service to
our nation.
Do you have questions or suggestions? You can
submit them via this forum at lighthouse@navy.mil, on-
line using the CO’s Suggestion Box at http://cnic.navy.
mil/ventura/index.htm or at www.Facebook.com/Na-
valBaseVenturaCounty. You can also follow NBVC on
Twitter at www.twitter.com/NBVCCalifornia and keep
up on the latest news and events.
Why can’t furloughed civilians eat at the galley to save money? w

The Dallas Cowboys are returning to
Oxnard for their summer training camp,
but this year, there will be no autograph
signing session at Naval Base Ventura
County.
Instead, the Cowboys have established
three Military Appreciation Days during
their monthlong training camp when
military personnel in uniform or with
proper identification can park for free in
the VIP parking lot and sit in a special
designated viewing area.
Admission to the training camp itself
is free to everyone.
The Military Appreciation Days are
Thursday, Aug. 1; Tuesday, Aug. 6; and
Tuesday, Aug. 13. Football practice begins
at 4 p.m. each day.
The training camp is near the River
Ridge Golf Course, at the corner of Vine-
yard Avenue and Ventura Road. The VIP

“We want to let people know that this

This is a large-scale joint exercise, he
explained, involving 21 “victims,” includ-
ing four mannequins representing fatalities

Naval Mobile ConstructionBat-
talion(NCMB) 3welcomedits new
commanding officer during an of-
ficial change of commandceremo-
ny June 27 at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Port Hueneme.
Cmdr. Gordon Meek III, previ-
ously the public works officer at
Naval Submarine Base New Lon-
don, Conn., relieved Cmdr. Scott
P. Raymond, who will remain
aboardNBVCas the chief of staff
for Naval Construction Group
(NCG) 1.
“WhenI got wordthat I was cho-
sentotake commandof NMCB3,
I was immediately humbled and
excitedat beingaffordedsucharare
andmeaningful opportunity,”said
Meek. “As we prepare todeploy to
the Pacific region, it’s anhonor for
me toleada battalionthat is ready,
focusedandcapable of strengthen-
ing those friendships we’ve spent
the past 70 years helping culti-
vate.”
RaymondreceivedaMeritorious
Service Medal fromCapt. Rodney
Moore, deputy commander of
NCG 1 and commander of the
30thNaval ConstructionRegiment.
Moore servedas guest speaker, and
afterward, Raymondaddressedthe
nearly600Seabees of NMCB3for
a final time.
“The last fewyears have certain-
ly flown by,” said Raymond. “Al-
though there are some great take-
aways when looking at the
contributions we made aroundthe
globe during deployments, I’ve al-
ways measured success by the
growth of those in our team. I can
honestly say that NMCB 3 has
grown both professionally in their
skills and abilities and as a unit
committed to each other’s suc-
cess.”
The battalion is preparing for a
deployment later this summer.

Moving every 2.9 years often means
learning a new culture with every move.
Every state, every county, every school
district has different ways of doing
things.
If you are new to Naval Base Ventura
County, here are some tips and bits of
information that may be helpful:
Class assignments
Typically, elementary schools post class
assignments in the front of the school the
week prior to school’s start. Middle
schools will typically hand out the stu-
dents’ schedules the first day of school,
and some may have an orientation day
one week prior. High schools will usually
have a student schedule pick-up day the
week prior to school’s beginning — a day
of the week assigned to each grade level.
School supplies
If you were not given a “suggested”
school supply list when you registered your
student, you may be able to find a list on
the school’s website or posted in the school
office window. However, teachers may
have their own “suggested”school supply
list. The best option may be to buy some
of the basics —pencils, pens, college-ruled
notebook paper, a sturdy backpack —and
be prepared to run out to the store the
first day of school with a school supply
shopping list.
Supplemental programs and
extra-curricular activities
Many supplemental programs have been
cut from school programs. Many elemen-
tary schools no longer have gym class, art
class or music and band. Those that do
usually pay for the programs through par-
ent fundraising and community founda-
tions.
This doesn’t mean that your child will
not have the opportunity to participate in
physical education, art or music. Typi-
cally, the regular classroom teacher will
integrate it into the daily curriculum. Stu-
dents in middle school and high school
will have gym class required, and art or
music will often be an elective course.
Sports and extra-curricular activities are
offered at the middle schools and high
schools.
Dress code
Dress codes vary within the districts
here in Ventura County. Some elemen-
tary and middle schools have a uniform
requirement. Others, including high
schools, have dress code policies that for-
bid certain clothing items. Many middle
schools and high schools do not allow
clothing that promotes a professional
sports team. However, many will encour-
age college-team clothing; some allow it
every day and others encourage it on cer-
tain days. It is best to check with your
student’s school on policies.
— If you have questions about local schools,
call the NBVC school liaison officer at 805-
989-5211 or email monica.james@navy.mil.

I recently came across this heartwarming
slice-of-life story about a hard-working
single momwho’dhada roughday at work,
and suddenly her world was made OK
again when she was greeted by her little
boy at home.
She shares her story:
Today, my 8-year-old son hugged me and
said, “You are the best mom in the whole
entire world!”
I smiled and sarcastically replied, “How
do you know that? You haven’t met every
mom in the whole entire world.”
My son squeezed me tighter and said, “Yes
I have. You are my world.”
Just like that hard-working mother, most
of us have to juggle work, family, bills to
be paid or whatever else — all at the same
time. Because of the fast-paced life we all
live, it is easy tofocus our attentiononthese
things that always demand our attention.
If we live life this way long enough, it will
rob us of what is truly important in life.
If our current jobandeconomic situation
gets tougher, it means we have toworkeven
harder so we can get through our financial
challenges. For most of us, this will trans-
late into spending more time at our jobs,
looking for more work or thinking about
new ways to make ends meet.
The sad Catch-22 is that we do this be-
cause we care for our loved ones, yet at the
same time we may lose sight of the very
ones we are all trying to fight for.
I want to remind everyone of this impor-
tant truth: Never lose sight that you are
already the most important person in
someone’s eyes. God already cares for you
and your loved ones more than you can
possibly know.
Second, please take care of yourself
physically, emotionally, mentally and spir-
itually. By taking better care of yourself,
you will be a better person for your family.
You will also be much better prepared for
any possible drastic changes in your life.
Sometimes people will have to make dra-
matic changes in their lives when things are
not going well professionally or financial-
ly: leaving and moving to another place for
work; having to leave a job much earlier
than planned, etc. Eventually the tough
times will pass. But it is much harder to
have a “do over” on a broken relationship
in the process.
Your faith, family and loved ones in your
life are things that are truly worth fighting
for. Don’t let the distraction and life’s side-
shows rob you of what is truly precious.
Remember, you are already the most im-
portant person is someone’s life right
now.
May God protect and bless us all great-
ly!
Don’t ever forget that you mean the world to somebody

Beautiful music rarely comes from the
anxiety and stress of waiting for a ship-
ment to arrive.
But in the case of a keyboard in transit
and a Seabee who filled her musical crav-
ings by sitting down at the piano in the

result is a Gospel Explosion.

BU2 Thad Dodds shows the rough sketch of the “command coin” plaque he’s creating for
the Seabee plot at the Senior Community Garden in Oxnard.

ThadDodds leans over his router andmakes
headway on a round plaque that will soon
grace the Seabees’ plot at the Senior Com-
munity Garden in Oxnard.
“When I heard we needed a sign, the first
thing I thought was ‘command coin,’” says
Dodds, a nine-year Seabee assignedtoNaval
Mobile Construction Battalion 3.
Soa commandcoinit will be. Inthe center
will be two lilies and the words, “Honoring
the courage of the military’s commitment,”
withthewords “Naval BaseVenturaCounty”
alongthetopperimeterand“Est. 2013”along
the bottom.
Theplaquewill bemountedontheexterior
wall of the Oxnard fire station next to the
garden, whichis along-termcommunityrela-
tions project of theReligious Ministries Team
at the base.
Earlier this year, the teamcleanedupwhat
was then an overgrown garden and helped
rehabilitate some of the 17 plots. They took
ononeof theplots inthenameof theSeabees
andplantedcucumbers, strawberries, redon-
ions, peppers, tomatoes, basil, mint andother
producethatwill soonbeharvested, withmuch
of it going to the local food bank.
The plot needed an identification marker,
and that’s where Dodds came in.
“I’ma carpenter,”he explains.
As a child, he was always creative and ar-
tistic, but he focusedonpaint andclay. Wood
was not his medium.
“I hated it,”he says with a laugh.
But thenhe joinedthe Navy andbecame a
builder. Andwhenhis wife, Bethany, became
pregnant withConnor, now2, Dodds decided
to build his son a crib.
“SoIgotsomenewtoysandIbuiltConnor’s
crib,”Dodds says.
Oncethatwasfinished, hebuiltathree-quar-
ter scale Jeep out of plywood as a prop for a
VacationBibleSchool inSanDiego. Thenext
year he built a replica of a 1930 biplane.
Andnow, inadditiontothegardenplaque,
he’sworkingonan8-foot-highhot airballoon
for the Vacation Bible School here.
“Iget aticklishhairandboom! Istart build-
ing,”he says.
Headmits that beforehestarts inonaproj-
ect, an untouched chunk of wood can be in-
timidating.
“Oh yeah, I always freak out when I start
somethingnew,”he said. “But Godhelps out
that way.”
The plaque is just over 33 inches in diam-
eter. Dodds searchedtheInternet for themost
beautiful flower he could find and settled on
a lily. He’ll stain part of the plaque a deep
ebony; the rest will remainlight, coveredwith
only a natural stain.
He finds aninner joyinworking onvolun-
teer projects.
“It benefits me as muchas anyone else,”he
says.
He’s alsoconfident hecanfinishtheproject
before he deploys at the end of the month.
“WithGod’swill,”hesays, “anythingispos-
sible.”

NBVC Public Affairs
More than 200 people gathered Friday,
June 28, to say farewell to Capt. David
Sasek, former chief staff officer of Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) who is re-
tiring after 26 years of military service.
Although his official retirement date is
Oct. 1, the ceremony at the U.S. Navy
Seabee Museum marked the end of his
official duties as a Naval officer and the
beginning of his life as a civilian.
Sasek graduated with merit from the
U.S. Naval Academy in 1987, embarking
on a career that would take him around
the globe. He served in Operations Desert
Shield and Stormand led Seabees in Gulf-
port, Miss., during Hurricane Katrina,
becoming first responders to the disaster
that devastated the Gulf Coast.
During his tenure, Sasek earned the re-
spect of his fellow officers and mentors,
two of whomchose to speak on his behalf
during the ceremony.
Retired Rear. Adm. Jack Buffington,
who hand-selected Sasek as his aide dur-
ing his tour as the head of Navy Facilities
Engineering Command, came to see Sasek
retire —and tell a fewstories about Sasek’s
early career.
After meeting Sasek as a young lieuten-
ant in Yokuska, Japan, Buffington se-
lected him as his aide.
“When Dave showed up, well that’s
when my problems started,” Buffington
joked, drawing laughter from Sasek and
the audience. “My previous two aides
could sweet talk the ticketing office into
giving us free flight upgrades. Dave
wouldn’t do that, so I had to get used to
riding back in trash class.”
Although full of jokes about Sasek as
a young officer, Buffington ended with
praise for the man that young officer be-
came.
“It’s been a tremendous opportunity to
know him. I drove through 1,700 miles of
hot weather and desert just to be here at
your retirement. It’s a tremendous honor
to serve with you, Dave,” Buffington
said.
Guest speaker retired U.S. Navy Capt.
JimCowell, who had also supervised Sasek
in the past, added to the praise — and the
humor.
“Nicole, I’m sure leading Team Sasek
has been a challenge,” he said, addressing
Sasek’s wife. “I know because I used to
have the job of leading Dave.”
Calling Sasek a man of “integrity and
conviction,” Cowell told of a lieutenant
not afraid to deliver bad news, willing to
stand up to his leaders in the name of
doing what’s right, and a good friend
whose example was – and is – worth fol-
lowing.
The ceremony — a traditional, often
ritualistic event marking the importance
of the officer’s service and the beginning
of his life as a civilian — was as marked
by strong emotion and humor as the
speeches given by the special guests.
As part of the ceremony, officers rep-
resenting every rank Sasek held during
his service ceremonially passed a U.S.
Flag from hand to hand while Cmdr. Jim
Brown, master of ceremonies, read “Old
Glory,”tearing up and pausing during the
emotional ritual.
“It’s dusty in here. Allergies,” he joked
with the crowd afterward. “That one gets
me every time.”
Many others shared his reaction, in-
cluding Sasek, who became visibly emo-
tional when he passed the flag to his
wife.
“The flag I just presented to you, the
last time it flew was over my camp in the
desert in a foreign land in time of war,”
he explained. “I really look forward to
hoisting that flag over our home together
and spending many peaceful hours enjoy-
ing the view from our front porch.”
After a smile, Sasek noted that although
he has nailed down his next job at Pep-
perdine University, settling on a place to
live has been a struggle.
“We know it will be somewhere in Ven-
tura County,” Sasek explained.
At the close of the ceremony, Sasek read
his own retirement orders, which detach
him from NBVC to his “home of selec-
tion…somewhere in Ventura County.”

Retired Navy Capt. Jim Cowell shares a laugh with Capt. David Sasek, the former chief
staff officer of Naval Base Ventura County whose retirement ceremony was held June 28
at the Seabee Museum.
Nearly 40 years ago, Dave
Sasek was a wild 9-year-old kid,
youngest of five children and
the only son of a single mother
living in Northern California.
“I was in desperate need of
some positive male influence,”
Sasek said, noting that his mom
signed him up for Big Brothers
Big Sisters. “As a single mom
withfive kids, it was like a circus
at home sometimes.”
After a fewfalse starts, Sasek
was matchedwithStewart Mar-
tin, an enlisted Sailor with no
kids but a personal understand-
ing of what it means to need a
role model.
“I lived in five different foster
homes growing up,” Martin
said. “WhenI was onshore duty
withthe Navy, I hada lot of free
time, and I wanted to share it
with a youngster that needed
it.”
Martin taught Sasek respon-
sibility and how to do house-
workandyardwork. They made
pancakes withMartin’s wife and
got dirty working in the garden.
Martin took Sasek bowling and
took him on ships and around
the medical center where he
worked, introducing him to a
worldof strong role models and
leaders.
In the end, Martin wound up
“planting the seed” that led to
Sasek’s Navy career.
“I’ll bet you didn’t knowthat,
Stewart, but you’re the reason I
became an officer,” Sasek said.
“I told you I wanted to growup
and be just like you, be in the
Navy like you. You told me that
if I joined, I hadtobe anofficer.
I had to go to the academy and
be an officer.”
And Sasek did.
“I knowwithout a doubt that
I wouldn’t be where I amtoday
without Stewart,” Sasek said.
Martin came to Sasek’s in-
duction day at the U.S. Naval
Academy. A quarter of a cen-
tury later, he came to see Sasek
retire.
Martin, who retired fromthe
Navy as a command master
chief, could not be more proud
of Sasek, or more surprised at
the credit Sasek gives him.
“I didn’t realize it at the time,
howmuch influence one person
could have on a child,” Martin
said. “But I wasn’t about to
walk away. I’m so proud of
him.”
Sasek thanks Big Brother for seeing him through

Stewart Martin became David Sasek’s
mentor when they met through the Big
Brothers Big Sisters program when Sasek
was 9 years old. They have remained close
all these years, with Martin attending both
Sasek’s induction day at the U.S. Naval
Academy and his retirement ceremony
Friday, June 28.

There are many variables to consider
when adopting a pet. Owning an animal
isn’t just about loving and caring for it.
There are also expenses that come along
with it — food, grooming, toys and vet-
erinarian visits.
Within the military community, an
additional expense is the cost of moving
with your animal.
These expenses vary depending on
whether your Permanent Change of
Station (PCS) is within the continental
United States or overseas. Airlines have
different restrictions about the size and
weight of the pet, different carrier
guidelines and different ticket prices.
Check your airline’s policy regarding
the number of pets they’ll accept and
whether the animals can be flown dur-
ing extremely hot or cold weather.
Moving across the country or around
the world can be a stressful experience,
but adding a cat or dog to the process
can make the experience even more
complicated. Preparation can help re-
duce the stress level. Check with your
veterinary office to find out what is
needed for a PCS. Find pet-friendly
hotels. Compare airline prices. Start
this process as soon as you learn that
you’re PCSing, and set some money
aside for unforeseen expenses.
If you are PCSing with a pet but
aren’t sure how it will affect your bud-
get, and to find out what services are
available to you, contact the Navy-Ma-
rine Corps Relief Society at 805-982-
4409.
Hidden costs of having a pet

About two weeks before a battalion or
a squadron returns from deployment, the
welcome-home signs start popping up.
Those signs will lookfreshlater this sum-
mer when Naval Mobile Construction Bat-
talion (NMCB) 4 comes home, thanks to
the NMCB 4 Family Readiness Group
(FRG) and the American Red Cross.
Saturday morning, June 22, about two
dozen spouses and Red Cross volunteers
met at Bolles Field to spruce up the well-
worn signs and paint some new ones.
“They’ve been around the block,” FRG
President Corinna Savage said of the doz-
en knee-high bee signs that usually line a
block of 23rd Avenue at NBVCPort Hue-
neme just before the Seabees come home.
Savage, whose husband is Chief Builder
SeanSavage, organizedthe paint party. The
Red Cross donated the plywood and paint,
worth about $250, said Curt Stahl, the Ser-
vice to Armed Forces coordinator for the
American Red Cross of Ventura County.
“It’s money very well spent,” he said.
Two other Red Cross volunteers, Ofelia
and Fred Rodriguez, stayed the morning
to help paint.
While most of the volunteers were wives
— and a few children — one husband
joined in. Equipment Operator 2nd Class
Sean McCartney of Naval Construction
Group 1 took part in the project while his
wife, Equipment Operator 2ndClass Susan
McCartney is deployed with NMCB 4.
They’ve been married for three years.
“This is our first deployment, although
we met on deployment in Guam,”McCart-
ney said. “Now I can start counting the
days instead of the months.”
Onthe other endof the spectrumis Mar-
garet Henske, who’s been married to Chief
Equipment Operator Scott Henske for
nearly 12 years and is going through her
ninth deployment.
“I’m used to it,” she said.
Henske enjoys the FRGmeetings, which
organizers describe as the “social” arm of
the battalion —or, as Savage put it: “We’re
the fun part.”
The FRG meets monthly for a party, a
barbecue, a guest speaker or a movie. This
group recently held its “over the hump”
picnic to note the halfway point in the de-
ployment.
“We’re here to offer support and boost
morale,”Savage said. “We also disseminate
information to families.”
Allison Woodward, the treasurer of the
group, said the FRG has offered her a lot
of support as she gets used to the military
lifestyle. She and her husband, Lt. Billy
Woodward, have been married two years,
and they have an 11-month-old son, Ever-
ett.
“We celebrated our second anniversary
in April, and he wasn’t here,” she said, de-
scribing some of the many difficult times
Navy spouses must learntodeal with. “And
our son was only 6 months old when he
left. He wasn’t even rolling over yet.”
They Skype weekly andshare photos and
videos.
And Woodward goes to FRG meet-
ings.
“That way,” she said, “I know I’m not
alone.”
FRG gets ready to welcome home Seabees
Allison Woodward and her 11-month-old son,
Everett, attend the sign-painting party June
22. Woodward said the Family Readiness
Group has helped her cope when her
husband, Lt. Billy Woodward, is deployed.
EO2 Sean McCartney of Naval Construction
Group 1 helps paint welcome-home signs as
a member of the Family Readiness Group for
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 4. His
wife of three years, EO2 Susan McCartney,
is deployed with the battalion, which is
expected to return home later this summer.

Ofelia and Fred Rodriguez, longtime Red Cross volunteers, help members of the Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion 4 Family Readiness Group repaint welcome-home signs.
The Family Readiness Group (FRG) of
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
4 is seeking donations of laundry
detergent, dryer sheets, toilet paper,
bottled water and non-perishable
snacks for the 180 Single Sailors who
are returning home with the battalion
later this summer. The FRG creates
welcome-home kits for the Sailors
and leaves them in their barracks so
they’re greeted with something when
they walk in the door. For information,

PITI, Guam — Sailors, personnel from
Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Marianas, Soldiers from the
84th Engineering Battalion and Seabees
assigned to Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 5 joined family and
friends who gathered June 20 to com-
memorate the 10-year anniversary of the
passing of Vicenta Chargualaf Peredo,
affectionately known as “Seabee Betty,”
at Guam Veterans Cemetery.
Born in 1934 in the village of Yona,
Seabee Betty established a relationship
with service members in the 1950s and was
a temporary mother and friend to thou-
sands of Seabees until her death in 2003.
She hosted welcome and farewell parties
for each Seabee battalion stationed on the
island and fostered a family spirit among
the commands and island community.

ianas commanding officer, recalled his
memories of meeting Seabee Betty and
discussed the significance of remembering
who she was.
“Commemorating the 10th year since
Seabee Betty’s passing is an opportunity
to celebrate a life and legacy that really
demonstrates the very essence of the wel-
coming Guam culture that we know and
love,”he said. “We honor her memory not
only in our remembrance of her life, but
also by emulating her actions in the kind-
ness we show to others.”
Debbie Peredo, Seabee Betty’s daughter,
spoke at the memorial.
“All the kids were excited because Sea-
bee Betty was the only one who could
bring all of the military to the village,”
said Debbie. “All they needed was three
big buses and maybe two convoy trucks,
and we would have about 200 of them
[Seabees] sitting at Seabee Betty’s place
having a feast.”
Equipment Operator 1st Class Joshua
Harr, assigned to NMCB 5, recalled his
deployment to Guamin 2002 with NMCB
40 when he went to a fiesta at Seabee
Betty’s.
“It was amazing,”Harr said. “The whole
battalion loaded into the old five-ton
cargo trucks and drove into the hills.
When we arrived at Seabee Betty’s house,
it seemed like the entire village was out
there to greet us.
“It was a good feeling to be part of
that.”
Since Betty’s passing, her daughter has
taken on the title “Seabee Debbie.” With
the help of her family, she has continued
the legacy her mother created six decades
ago.
“It is an honor and a blessing to carry
on the legacy of our dearly beloved moth-
er,”Debbie said. “I would like to carry on
my mom’s legacy forever and to celebrate
her life with my Seabees and the rest of
my armed forces.”

Gafayat Moradeyo knew that trying to
earn a master’s degree while serving in the
military wasn’t going to be easy.
It had been 10 years since she’d earned
her bachelor’s degree in her homeland of
Nigeria, and trying to study while working
full-time and running a household with a
husband and a 2-year-old looked daunt-
ing.
But she’d already proven to her doubt-
ing sister that she could manage a family
and a career, so why not this?
“Making the decision to do it wasn’t
hard,” says Builder 2nd Class Moradeyo,
who’s nowwithNaval ConstructionGroup
1, homeported at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Port Hueneme. “Getting
it done and sticking with it, that wasn’t
easy. Several times I’d ask myself, ‘Why
did I even start this?’ But I knew I had to
finish it, and I did.”
It took three years, but on July 27, Mo-
radeyo will be in Long Beach to graduate
magna cumlaude —with a 3.8 grade point
average — and be presented with a mas-
ter’s degree in business administration,
with a concentration in project manage-
ment, from Trident University Interna-
tional.
In those three years she deployed twice
to Afghanistan — once as crew leader of
the detail that would make history by be-
ing the first all-female team of Seabees to
carry out a construction project fromstart
to finish — and she would have another
baby, a son now 6 months old.
“Trying to get the work done in Af-
ghanistan and being pregnant during that
last class — those were the two hardest
parts,”Moradeyo said. “My husband just
kept telling me, ‘You can do this.’ So I just
did it.”
Moradeyo reached her five-year mark
in the Navy in May, at which time she re-
enlisted for another six. She’s hoping a
master’s degree will help in her efforts to
become an officer, and she hopes to even-
tually serve overseas as a liaison between
government entities. She is fluent in Yo-
ruba, one of three major languages spoken
in Nigeria.
Moradeyo grew up in an environment
where education was valued and sought.
Her father, a pharmacist, advocates con-
tinuous learning, and three of her closest
friends in high school nowhave their doc-
torate degrees.
She went straight into college after high
school and earned a bachelor’s in mass
communications when she was 21.
In 2007, the family moved to Illinois,
but Moradeyo soon joined her sister in
Texas, where it was warmer. It was her
brother-in-law who suggested the Navy
— and her sister laughed at the idea.
Moradeyo didn’t think it was funny. Her

husband was in England, she’d just had
a baby and her father was insisting she
get a job. In fact, it was her father who
talked to the recruiter first.
“It was all very good motivation,” Mo-
radeyo recalls. “So six months after my
baby was born, I started boot camp.”
Two years after that, encouraged by her
chain of command, she approached the
Navy College to get information on a
master’s degree. Eight months into the
program, she deployed to Afghanistan
with Naval Mobile Construction Battal-
ion 4.
“There was very little computer access,”
she recalls. “I was only taking one class,
but it was all online. There was a lot of
research and a lot of writing, but there
were so many people wanting to use a
computer, and you had to consider
them.”
At Bagram Airfield, whenever possible,
she would pay for longer computer ac-
cess.
“You make do with whatever connec-
tion there is,” she said. “It can be
done.”
Rochelle Goitia, an education services
specialist with the Navy College Office
at NBVC Port Hueneme, said Trident’s
coursework is primarily essays. There are
no standardized tests that allowfor guess-
work.
“You either know it or you don’t,” she
said.
Moradeyo knew it: She ended up with
all A’s and one B.
Goitia said the degree cost $9,000 over
the three-year period. The Navy wrote
the check through its Tuition Assistance
program.
Moradeyo’s family will be in Long
Beach for the commencement, including
her husband, who works in the jail com-
missary and will be entering the Ventura
County Sheriff ’s Academy in October,
and their children.
Also in the audience will be her sister
from Texas, the one who doubted Mo-
radeyo could juggle a family and a ca-
reer.
“I told her at the time, ‘I’m going to
show you,’” Moradeyo said.
Then she grins.
National University has become the
third school with an office and classrooms
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC).
It joins the University of LaVerne, which
has had a presence on base for 44 years
and is housed at NBVC Point Mugu, and
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University,
also at Point Mugu.
Albert de la Rocha, center director of
operations for the Oxnard campus, said
that even in this age of online classes and
textbooks, there’s still a place for a physi-
cal classroom and a flesh-and-blood in-
structor who can look at a student and
see enlightenment and understanding or
confusion and defeat.
“With education, it’s important to see
it in someone’s eyes,” he said.
National University’s classrooms are in
the Navy College Office, Bldg. 104 —nick-
named the White House — facing 23rd
Avenue at NBVC Port Hueneme.
Admissions adviser Samantha Stewart
is based there full time. Classes will start
in October.
The school is offering two on-site pro-
grams this fall. Classes leading to a gen-
eral associate’s degree will be offered from
5:30 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays,
and classes leading to a master’s in public
administration will be taught at the same
time Mondays and Wednesdays.

House or call 805-433-5687.

Calling it a “world-class facility” that
“looks fabulous,” Capt. Larry Vasquez,
commanding officer of Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC), cut the ribbon
Monday, July 1, on the newly remodeled
Needham Theater at NBVC Port Hue-
neme.
The grand opening would come a few
days later when the Needham hosted a
Sunday, July 7, sneak preview of “Pa-
cific Rim.”
For the first time, the audience could
enjoy air conditioning in the theater, and
they could buy snacks — Icees included
— in a state-of-the-art lobby boasting
high-definition digital screens advertis-
ing the offerings and upcoming fea-
tures.
“You cannot tell the difference be-
tween this and any theater out in town,”
Vasquez said during the ribbon-cutting
ceremony.
The Needham closed in mid-Decem-
ber for the $1.7 million interior renova-
tion that brought the 44-year-old build-
ing up to code and improved the
interior environment. Restrooms are
now accessible to people who use wheel-
chairs, and the staircases leading to the
second floor have wooden handrails.
In addition, carpeting and fixtures
were replaced, and the stage lighting was
made more energy efficient.
Vasquez noted that plans and financ-
ing were arranged before what he called
today’s “trying times.”
“We couldn’t execute this today,” he
said.

Hundreds of people came to the Port
Hueneme Navy Exchange Saturday, June
29, to get up close and personal with the
eight massive Budweiser Clydesdales that
star in the brewery’s beloved football- and
holiday-season ad campaigns.
But more than once, the young upstart
stole the spotlight.
“Yeah, they’re nice, but where’s the
dog?” was heard more than once — and
the spunky Dalmatian didn’t disappoint,
roaming around the edge of the crowd as
handlers harnessed the horses and got
them ready to parade around the NEX
parking lot at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty, Port Hueneme.
The Clydesdales and their faithful com-
panion were the stars of an NEX Cus-
tomer Appreciation Event that also fea-
tured 1,000 free bratwursts, samples of
energy drinks and wines, and drawings for
merchandise ranging from a popcorn pop-
per and beach cooler to a Kindle Fire and
a bicycle.
“This is our way of saying thank you,”
said General Manager Anna Esguerra.
The crowd started forming shortly after
the air-conditioned horse trailers pulled
into the side parking lot. Handlers opened
the large doors, and the horses soon poked
their heads out, eyeballing the gawking
humans.
“I didn’t know anything about this,” said
a stunned Steelworker 2nd Class Sheldon
Smith of Naval Mobile Construction Bat-
talion 3.
Luckily, he said, he always carries a
camera with him, and he spent the next
hour snapping close-ups of the regal ani-
mals.
Handlers were peppered with questions
as they unloaded the Clydesdales, groomed
them and began rigging them up to the
shiny red wagon.
“How much do they weigh?”
Answer: They average a ton, with the
largest one topping out at 2,300 pounds.
“How old are they?”
Answer: They average 10 years.
One mom took the question-and-answer
exercise to another level, quizzing her three
youngsters.
“If there are eight horses and four legs
on each, how many legs are there total?”
asked Kristi Kisling, whose husband is
Fire Controlman 1st Class Richard Kis-
ling with Naval Surface Warfare Center,
Clydesdales visit base, but dog steals the show
Scotty Gray, faciilities manager for the Port
Hueneme NEX, cooks some of the 1,000
bratwursts that were available for free during the
event.

Posing in front of the Budweiser Clydesdales was a popular pastime at the Saturday, June 29, NEX Customer Appreciation Event, which also featured free bratwursts and merchandise giveaways.
At least two of the Clydesdales are eager to go.
Port Hueneme Division.
Meanwhile the Dalmatian, who had his
breakout role in 2008 in a Super Bowl
XLII commercial in which he trains a
Clydesdale to the theme of “Rocky,” made
the rounds.
He found a good friend in Virgil Steele,
an Oxnard resident visiting his father, a
retired Army veteran of the Korean War
who was spending a week vacationing on
base. Steele owns three dogs and always
carries dog treats. It didn’t take long for
the Dalmatian to figure that out, and
Steele was just getting ready to share when
one of the handlers stopped him.
Budweiser brought the Dalmatian into
its ad campaign in 1950. The Clydesdales
go back to the end of Prohibition.
“The Budweiser Clydesdales made their
first-ever appearance on April 7, 1933,”
the Budweiser website states. “A gift from
August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch
to their father in celebration of the repeal
of Prohibition, the presentation of the
original two six-horse hitches of cham-
pion Clydesdales moved father, sons and
drivers to tears. The phrase ‘crying in your
beer’ was officially coined shortly there-
after.”
Athena Jaco-McLaren wasn’t driven to
tears, but the 1-year-old was clearly in awe
of the huge animals.
“She’s never seen a horse before,” said
her mom, Builder Constructionman Bran-
di Jaco-McLaren of NBVC.
Edith Slaght had seen horses but never
Clydesdales. She was only a few feet away
as they were being hitched to the wagon.
“I love football,” said the spouse of
Chief Firecontrolman Daniel Slaght of
NAVSEA. “That’s how I know them.”
It took nearly an hour for the handlers
to hitch up the team and start them on
their walk to the NEX parking lot. The
crowd, now numbering about 200, fol-
lowed, and more joined as the horses
started their loop, the Dalmatian perched
next to the driver.
Once they were back in front of the
NEX, they stayed put for more than an
hour, posing for photos.
But a photo wasn’t enough for 2-year-
old Colton Beardsley.
Arms outstretched, he looked puzzled
as his dad, Builder 1st Class Adam Beard-
sley of 1st Naval Construction Regiment,
held him tight.
“He wants to go for a ride,” the father
explained.

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Dawn Reid has been named the first vic-
tim advocacy support specialist for the
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response
(SAPR) program at Naval Base Ventura
County.
Reid, who came on board April 30, says
she is excited about her new position be-
cause it will allow her to increase her role
as a victim advocate, a field in which she
has a decade of experience.
“Sexual assault is a crime of power and
control,”she said. “Whensomeone has been
violated in that way, it’s important for the
victimto feel, to knowthat they are in con-
trol of this part of their process. The im-
portance of this and the impact it has on
their healing and recovery cannot be over-
stated.”
Reid will be working under the direction
of Julie Whirlow, the sexual assault resource
coordinator for the base. The SAPR pro-
gram is run through the Fleet & Family
Support Center (FFSC).
A 21-year resident of Ventura County,
Reid said she is thrilled to be involved with
the military community again; she was
raised in an Air Force family.
Reid brings to the base 10 years of direct
sexual assault prevention and response ex-
perience. She was previously with Interface
Children and Family Services, where she
focused on the prevention of child sexual
abuse. For seven years, she managed the
agency’s My Body Belongs to Me pro-
gram.
As a SAPRvictimadvocacy support spe-
cialist, Reid serves as the primary initial
point of contact for victims of sexual as-
sault and works with all intervening agen-
cies as an advocate for the expressed inter-
est of victims. She provides 24/7 support
for victims’ immediate needs, including as-
sessing all safety concerns and providing
victims with information on available re-
sources both within the military and in the
community.
She is a confidential resource for victims
who are seeking SAPR services.
Although the position of a victim advo-
cacy support specialist is newtoNBVC, the
SAPRprogramis well-established. In 1994
the U.S. Navy became the first branch of
the military to have a dedicated programto
respond to sexual assaults. Initially that
programwas named Sexual Assault Victim
Intervention (SAVI). In 2005 the Depart-
ment of Defense Sexual Assault Prevention
and Response Office was created. The Na-
vy’s programtransitioned to SAPRin 2009
and has since continued to provide 24/7
response capability and prevention educa-
tion.
Reid’s position gives victims an addi-
tional avenue to seek support services after
they experience any type of unwanted
sexual contact. Victims alsohave the option
of seeking services throughspecially trained
volunteer active duty victim advocates by
calling the NBVCSAPRResponse Line at
805-218-9370, the base SARC at 805-207-
5309, or the DoDSafe Helpline, which is a
confidential hotline that offers support and
information from anywhere in the world.
Support through the DoD Safe Helpline

By Delaney Rodriguez
NSWC PHD
The African American Focus Group
(AAFG) at Naval Surface Warfare Center,
Port Hueneme Division (NSWC PHD),
hosted a Juneteenth celebration June 18
featuring guest speaker Walter Jackson, an
author and personal growth expert and the
co-owner of Self Awareness Trainings.
The event began with welcoming and
opening remarks from Michael Gibbons,
AAFGchairperson, and Capt. Burt Espe,
NSWCPHDcommanding officer, discuss-
ing the importance of Juneteenth.
“It is about people of all races and reli-
gions joining hands to acknowledge a time
in our history that shaped and continues
to influence today’s society,” Espe said.
“Today’s purpose is to celebrate African
American freedom and to encourage re-
spect for all people.”
Juneteenth represents June 19, 1865,
whenslaves across America learnedof their
freedom. Althoughthe EmancipationProc-
lamation was issued on Jan. 1, 1863, it took
more than two years for the news to reach
across the country. Today, the festival com-
memorates African American freedom,
emphasizing education, achievement and
the power to overcome. It is a day, a week,
and in some areas a month, marked with
celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and
family gatherings.
Jackson stated that people are enslaved
by their own thoughts and ideas; however
everyone has the ability to free themselves
fromtheir chains. To do this, one must use
the “Power Principles” used by superstar
athletes, including self-coaching and posi-
tive self-talk.
Jackson learned these lessons through
several personal losses and hardships in his
life. Throughout his speech, he spoke about
his hardships growing up in a house filled
with anger, losing both his best friend and
his future in sports through a high school
car accident, and, years later, losing his
father due to a violent tragedy. But because
of the support andstrengthof those around
him, including his mother after his father’s
tragic death and the love of his wife, he
learnedthe importance of the “Power Prin-
ciples.”
“There’s a spirit inside of everyone,”
Jackson said, “to help you participate and
to win in life. When life knocks you down,
you need to be like an athlete; pick yourself
up and just keep going.”
Following Jackson’s speech, attendees
were invited to close the celebration by
sharing in authentic cuisine typically as-
sociated with Juneteenth festivities.
NSWCPHD, locatedat Naval Base Ven-
tura County, is the Navy’s premier in-ser-
vice engineering and logistics center and
has been in existence for 50 years.

Approximately 65 percent of all De-
partment of Defense household moves
occur between May 15 and Aug. 1.
What can you do to ensure a smooth
move? Plan!
The Naval Supply Systems Command
is offering the following advice to anyone
getting ready for a move:
With the decline in moving companies’
capacity and Department of Defense
budget cuts, the sooner you start working
with the local Personal Property Office,
the greater your chance of getting the
desired pack-out date.
Don’t wait until a week or two before
the desired pack-out date to complete the
process at www.move.mil. Enter all your
data and paperwork as soon as possible.
For Navy information on getting started
with the move process, go to www.navsup.
navy.mil/household.
Another tip is to organize your house
and belongings. Go through all your
rooms and boxes from the last move to
make sure you still need the items. If it
hasn’t been worn or used in the last year,
do you still need it?
Sort your items by the type of ship-
ment: household shipment; unaccompa-
nied baggage, if authorized; profession-
al gear; and what is going in your suitcase
or car. By sorting, you may find out what
needs to be sold, donated or disposed of.
Keep in mind that if you exceed your
authorized weight allowance it can be
expensive!
Here’s a look at two of the most com-
monly used household goods terms and
what they mean:
• Household shipment: This is your
main shipment. It includes furniture,
dishes, washer and dryer, barbecue grill,
outdoor furniture, children’s play furni-
ture and most of your clothes.
• Unaccompanied baggage, if autho-
rized: This is the small shipment of items
that you will need to survive until your
big household shipment arrives. This is
normally only authorized with overseas
orders. Items to include would be enough
kitchenware and dishes to use daily (not
your china), crib, clothes, some uniforms,
some DVDs (but not your entire library),
etc.

Periodically, the Preventive Medicine
Division of Naval Branch Health Clinic
Port Hueneme receives complaints about
bedbugs. These pesky little critters were
recently discovered again in one location
on Naval Base Ventura County, and the
infested area was sprayed and the problem
eliminated.
Bedbugs, often considered to be a sign
of filth and disease, are springing up in
the cleanest of places.
Bedbugs live in dark cracks and crev-
ices of furniture, especially mattresses and
couches. No bigger than an apple seed,
they are small and ugly, with dark brown,
oval-shaped bodies that appear flat from
the top.
While they can feed on any warm-blood-
ed organism, bedbugs have a penchant for
humans. Their bites look like teeny mos-
quito bites, so it often takes awhile to real-
ize that those itchy spots aren’t your aver-
age mosquito’s summer meal.
do bedbugs spread disease?
Bedbugs should not be considered a
medical or public health hazard. They are
not known to spread disease, but they can
be an annoyance because their presence
may cause itching and loss of sleep. Some-
times the itching can lead to excessive
scratching that can sometimes increase the
chance of a secondary skin infection. Bite
marks may take as long as 14 days to de-
velop in some people, so it is important
to look for other clues when determining
if bedbugs have infested an area. These
signs include:
• Exoskeletons after molting.
• Bedbugs in the fold of mattresses and
sheets.
• Rusty-colored blood spots caused by
the blood-filled fecal material that they
excrete on the mattress or nearby furni-
ture.
• A sweet musty odor.
How did i get bedbugs?
Bedbugs are experts at hiding. Their
slim flat bodies allow them to fit into the
smallest of spaces and stay there for long
periods of time, even without a blood
meal. Bedbugs are usually transported
from place to place as people travel. They
hitchhike in the seams and folds of lug-
gage, overnight bags, folded clothes, bed-
ding, furniture and anywhere else where
they can hide. Most people do not realize
they are transporting them as they travel
from location to location, infecting areas
as they travel.
How are bedbugs treated and prevented?
The best way to treat a bite is to avoid
scratching the area. Apply antiseptic
creams or lotions and take an antihista-
mine. Bedbug infestations are commonly
treated by insecticide spraying. If you sus-
pect that you have an infestation, contact
your landlord or professional pest control
company that is experienced with treating
bedbugs.
The best way to prevent bedbugs is to
regularly look for signs of an infestation.
Bedbugs are difficult to deal with and re-
quire a combination of thorough and
repeated surveillance, preparation prior
to treatment, chemical treatment and pest
proofing. Non-chemical control in-
cludes:
• Washing all clothes and linens sus-
pected of infestation in hot water, then
transporting themin sealed bags for chem-
ical treatment.
• Cleaning thoroughly, especially along
edges and moldings and within bed frames
and drawers, and disposing of the vacuum
bag in a sealed plastic bag and removing
it from the home immediately.
• Eliminating all clutter and removing
and inspecting all belongings from the
bed, closets and drawers. Pay close atten-
tion to any cracks or seams in the bed,
curtains and cloth straps within the bed
frame.
• If it’s a heavy infestation, mattresses
and fabric items may have to be discard-
ed.

tive Medicine Unit Five website at http://

that serves NBVC, five engines from
across Ventura County, three ambulanc-
es, a Life Flight helicopter and a medical
examiner.
Under the scenario, an E-2C Hawkeye
from Carrier Airborne Early Warning
Squadron (VAW) 113, carrying a crew of
four and 4,000 pounds of fuel, takes off
fromPoint Mugu for landing practice but
collides with a flock of birds. Out of con-
trol, it crashes into Hangar 34, where
people are working on both the upper
and lower floors. The aircraft and the
hangar erupt into flames and fill with
smoke.
The exercise will test response times,
accuracy in triage, patient tracking and
other elements of an air disaster.
“Exercises like this help us to be better
prepared and better able to limit injuries
to personnel and damage to facilities,”
Huether said.
There have been two air crashes in three
years involving NBVC Point Mugu. In
May of 2011, a civilian tanker jet carry-
ing 150,000 pounds of fuel crashed on
takeoff, with its crew of three walking
away virtually unscathed. One year later,
a contractor flying a Hawker Hunter jet
on a fighter-training mission crashed into
a field near California State University
Channel Islands as he was returning to
the Point Mugu airstrip. The pilot, the
only one on board, was killed.

exercise will simulate air crash at NBVC Point mugu
parking lot will be located off Vineyard
Avenue. Check-in for all military person-
nel will be in the VIP and Corporate Day
check-in tent.
Military personnel and their immediate
family members will be assigned to a spe-
cial location so they can watch practice,
and they’ll be honored during the event.
The designated area holds only 500
people. When capacity is reached, remain-
ing military personnel will be directed to
the general admission area.
All military personnel in uniform or
with military ID will also receive a 15
percent discount on concessions and mer-
chandise sold on site.
The Cowboys arrive in Ventura Coun-
ty July 19. Practice begins Sunday, July
21. The team leaves Aug. 16, and there
are several days in between when they
don’t practice because they’re playing
preseason games.

Cowboys to honor military
Random gate checks and traffic stops
will be conductedtomake sure drivers have
that documentation, said Cmdr. Chris
Kenefick, base operations officer.
After Sept. 11, 2001, access to military
installations required the presentation of
an identification card or valid credential.
The windshield decals, issued by the De-
partment of Defense, were not intended to
be used for base access, only to serve as
proof that the car was registered and in-
sured.
“We’re more interested in the identifica-
tion of the people inside the car, not the
car itself,” Kenefick said.
The Air Force was the first branch to
stop issuing the decals. Some Army instal-
lations have followed suit. The Marines still
require them; Navy personnel who remove
their decals will need to stop at Pass & ID
if they need to enter a Marine facility.
Kenefick added that it’s up to the indi-
vidual car owner whether to scrape off the
current decal.
“There’s no requirement for people to
take it off,” he said.
The decals haddrawncomplaints through
the years from people who feared they
made their car a target outside the gates of
military installations.
