WHAT’S INSIDE
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
Six-hundred and seventy full
Thanksgiving dinners —fromthe
turkey to the rolls — were given
free to military families Saturday,
Nov. 23, at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) Port Huen-
eme.
Nearly 250 of those families
got a free pie as well — the first
item to run out.
The meals were donated by lo-
cal businesses and distributed by
volunteers, including U.S. Rep.
Julia Brownley, whose district
includes the base.
“Today is a great day to give
thanks for so many reasons,” she
said as she loaded 12- to 15-
pound turkeys into bags and
laundry baskets carried by active-
duty military members and their
families. “It’s nice to be here with
the men and women who serve
our country and make our com-
munities extraordinarily rich.”
Capt. Larry Vasquez, com-
manding officer of NBVC, was
on hand to watch the distribu-
tion, which started at 9 a.m. at
Bldg. 19, near the Pleasant Valley
Gate.
“This helps our families so
much,” he said, “not just finan-
cially but also with the stress of
the holidays.”

Question: We have fantastic aquatics facilities at
Naval Base Ventura County; it’s great to be able to swim
year-round in an outdoor, heated pool. Pool hours have
been reduced due to budget cuts, and with winter hours
in effect, pool hours are very limited.
I know the demand is there to keep the pool open.
Why not keep the pool open all day without lifeguards?
Or you could charge everyone to swim. I know this
would probably go against Navy policy, but if there is
one person who has the power to change this it’s you, the
commanding offcer of the base. I know there is a safety
risk in doing this, but in my opinion it’s quite low. We
don’t have lifeguards at the beach, after all.
Answer: Thank you for your note and suggestions.
Lifeguards at pools are a requirement that is regulated by
Navy instruction (CNIC Instruction 1710.3, Operation of
Morale, Welfare and Recreation Programs). MWR-run
pools must maintain strict patron-to-lifeguard ratios to
maintain the safety of our families and the security and
condition of our facilities. Pools in private communities
not run by MWR are not held to the same regulation.
As you pointed out, we don’t have lifeguards at our
beach, unless MWR is hosting an event. We do, how-
ever, require swimmers — and surfers — to swim with a
buddy, only in designated areas, and only during daytime
hours. Those in violation can lose the privilege of access
to the beach.
We charge patrons for recreational use of the pool but
cannot charge active duty members using the pool for
physical training, just like we can’t charge them to use
our gyms.
Budget cuts have been diffcult, and we’ve looked into
options to reduce the strain, but we are maintaining the
highest level of service given our current fscal environ-
ment.
Keep your suggestions coming! 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 us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/NBVC-
California and keep up on the latest news and events.
Could pool hours be extended if lifeguards were eliminated?w

It’s said that everything’s better with
bacon, and that proved to be the case
at the second annual Commissary Chili
Cookoff Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
Of the four competitiors, only Amber
Bugs put bacon in her chili — and
ended up winning the contest and a $50
gift card.
Bugs, the spouse of Chief Builder
Andy Bugs of NBVC’s Public Works
Department, also used turkey, ground
beef, three kinds of tomatoes and gar-
lic.
“Lots of garlic,” she said. “My hus-
band always says, ‘You added chili to
the garlic, right?’”
The judges, all from Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5,
were Builder Constructionman Justin
Keene, Utilities Constructionman Ty-
rese Patterson and Construction Elec-
trician Constructionman Jonathon
Lemus. They scored points based on
taste, uniqueness and presentation.
“I’ve never judged anything like this
before,” Lemus said, adding that he’d
gladly volunteer again. “I’ll come taste
more anytime.”
Each competitor tried something dif-
ferent.
Navy retiree Cory West served Chipo-
tle Gouda cheese as a topper. Construc-
tion Mechanic 2nd Class Mark Turner
of Naval Construction Group 1 used
sausage as a secret ingredient. And Jes-
sica Kierl, whose husband is Utilities-
man 2nd Class Ryan Kierl of NMCB
4, served cornbread.
Cynthia Villareyes, the supervisory
store associate who organized the event,
said a holiday bakeoff is planned for
Dec. 18. For information, call the com-
missary at 805-982-2400, ext. 307.

NMCRS volunteer
Every few months when a
yarn shipment arrives, the
Navy-Marine Corps Relief So-
ciety (NMCRS) office at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme, comes alive with a
talented group of volunteers.
From pink, blue, yellow,
green and, of course, camo-
colored yarn, these volunteers
knit or crochet the baby blan-
kets that are given to parents
who attend the free Budget for
Baby classes put on several
times a year by the NMCRS.
Their latest get-together took
place Tuesday, Nov. 19, when
15 women, some of whom had
never knitted or crocheted be-
fore, sat down for a “lunch and
learn” session.
For two hours, with some
sharing their knowledge and
others soaking it up, the wom-
en started in on a new batch of
blankets.
Lorraine Shallenberger
joined the group because she
likes crocheting.
“I love the idea that newpar-
ents and babies will benefit,”
she said. “It also keeps my
hands out of the popcorn while
watching TV.”
Another volunteer, Bea
Young, found out about
NMCRS through a military
widows program and quickly
learned her knitting skills
would be much appreciated.
“It’s a good pastime for me,”
she said. “It’s therapeutic, and
I love to help others. My hus-
band used to say he could tell
my mood by how the fast the
needles went.”
The blankets are squares,
some of them35 inches, others
48 inches. About 100 are given
away each year in Baby’s First
Seabag, a $150 collection of
baby products that goes home
with graduates of the Budget
for Baby class. The two-hour
course teaches parents and par-
ents-to-be about the expenses
—some expected, some unfore-
seen — of raising a child. The
next class is scheduled for 10
a.m. Jan. 14. To sign up, call
982-4409.
NMCRS volunteers are ask-
ing families that have already
received a blanket to email a
picture of the baby with it to
ventura@nmcrs.org.
“We would like to show our
knitters and crocheters how
their blanket is being used,”
said NMCRS Director Jeanne
Billiot. “It may only be a blan-
ket to some, but to others, it’s
a handmade gesture signifying
that people who care are only
a few steps away.”

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
and other dignitaries flew in to
Naval Base Ventura County, Point
Mugu, earlier this month to take
part in the Reagan National De-
fense Forumat the RonaldReagan
Presidential Library and Museum
in Simi Valley.
Capt. Larry Vasquez, com-
manding officer of the base, was
among those greeting Hagel as he
disembarked Saturday, Nov. 18.
Hagel was the keynote speaker
at the daylong forum, which drew
500 military personnel, members
of Congress and defense contrac-
tors. The chief of naval operations,
former Defense Secretaries Leon
Panetta and Robert Gates, the
commandant of the Marine Corps
and the secretary of the Army
were among those attending the
event, which focused on defense
policy and budget issues.
After the forum, several of-
ficials stayed to cut the ribbon
on the museum’s newest exhib-
it, a renovated Marine One he-
licopter in the Air Force One
Pavilion.

“Don’t schools get extra money for each
military student?”
I cannot count the number of times I’ve
been asked this question.
A simple answer is no. Schools don’t
receive extra money for military students.
Every year, some school districts will send
out a federal survey form asking parents
to complete it if they live or work on fed-
eral property. The responses result in Im-
pact Aid Funds, but it’s important for
families to realize that Impact Aid is not
extra money. It is more of a reimburse-
ment.
Here is a simple explanation of Impact
Aid: A primary source of revenue for
schools comes from local property taxes.
However, property taxes are not paid on
federal property. When a parent lives and/
or works on federal property, no property
tax revenue is contributed to the local
schools. Therefore, Impact Aid funds, in
a sense, reimburse local schools for revenue
that is being lost when they are serving
families living and working on federal
property. This isn’t extra money. It just
helps to recover some of the funds that
the schools would be receiving if they
didn’t serve families living and working
on federal property.
A parent might wonder how schools
ARE funded and how they can ensure
their schools are getting the most they can.
The formula for school funding is cur-
rently changing and will require coopera-
tion from families to ensure schools are
getting every dollar possible.
Local Control FundingFormula(LCFF)
is the new way the state of California is
funding public schools. Each school dis-
trict receives a base funding amount for
each student based on average daily at-
tendance. In addition to the base funding
amount, districts receive supplemental
funding for each student who is an English
learner and for students designated as low
income, foster youth and migrant students.
If the percentage of these special popula-
tions is above 50 percent, the district re-
ceives an additional amount of funding
called a concentration grant for each stu-
dent above the 50 percent line.
The identification of “low income” is
based on the guidelines of the federal Free
and Reduced Meal Program. Some of our
local school districts are part of a Provi-
sion 2 district, meaning that because there
is such a high percentage of low-income
students, all students in the district receive
meals at no cost to the family. For this
reason, they do not require families to
complete the Free and Reduced Meal Pro-
grameligibility formyearly. California has
created the Alternate Income Form for
verification of eligibility of low income
for LCFF purposes for Provision 2 dis-
tricts.
If your district sends home the Alterna-
tive Income Formor the Free and Reduced
Meal Program eligibility form, please be
sure to complete it. These forms need to
be completed to receive the maximum
amount of state funding. The funding the
districts receive must be used to directly
impact the educational program of these
students.
An important note for military families
to know is that BAH does not need to be
included in the family income if the fam-
ily is living in PPV housing (Lincoln Mil-
itary Housing). BAH only needs to be
included if the family is living outside of
military housing. Any type of hardship
pay also does not need to be included.
Excluding these allowances means that
many military families could qualify, and
your child’s school could be receiving much
more funding.
It’s also important to know that these
forms are kept confidential, and the infor-
mation will only be used for the purposes
it is intended for. If you have any questions
while completing these forms, please con-
tact the NBVC school liaison officer.
— For any education-related information,
please visit http://navylifesw.com/ventura/
families/cyp/slo/ or call 805-989-5211.
Forms bring reimbursements to schools, not extra money

The outage began just after 5 p.m.
Sunday, and the majority of affected
buildings had power restored before 8
p.m. Six barracks buildings, however,
remained without power throughout
Sunday and Monday. Power was re-
stored to all facilities by just after 1 a.m.
Tuesday morning, after Public Works
replaced 300 feet of faulty cable.
Navy Gateway Inn & Suites was af-
fected by the outage, and patrons in
rooms without power were quickly re-
located. Sailors staying in affected bar-
racks were also offered the opportunity
to temporarily relocate for the duration
of the outage. Surf.net stayed open un-
til 10 p.m. Sunday and Monday night
as well, offering Sailors a place to relax,
surf the Internet and charge their cell
phones.
Several hundred people working at
NBVC Point Mugu were without Inter-
net or email access Monday morning,
as the outage affected an NMCI switch
serving the installation. A generator
restored power and functionality around
lunchtime Monday.

Three women who work at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) are a driving
force behind a non-profit group that has
become a leading resource for breast can-
cer education and support in the local
area.
Earlier this month, they worked with
Religious Ministries to put on an English
afternoon tea inside a festively decorated
Seabee Chapel Fellowship Hall —an event
designed to honor breast cancer survivors
and to get the word out about the impor-
tance of early detection.
The Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer
Foundation was founded in 2002 by Lisa
Barreto, a paralegal specialist and Navy
mediator with the Naval Facilities Engi-
neering and Expeditionary Warfare Cen-
ter. She also serves as the foundation’s
president.
The vice president is Sylvia Rosolek, a
programanalyst with Naval Surface War-
fare Center, Port Hueneme Division.
Also active with the organization is Al-
lyson Swaney, an attorney with the Naval
Air Warfare Center Weapons Division.
All three are breast cancer survivors;
Barreto is a two-time survivor.
Barreto, Rosolek, Swaney and others in
the all-volunteer organization educate
women about risk factors, the need for
exams and ways to advocate for one’s own
health. They inform and support those
who have been diagnosed, and they speak
to families, friends and community orga-
nizations. They also honor those who suc-
cumb to the disease.
“Breast cancer happens to a family and
a community, not just to the woman who
is diagnosed,”Barreto told the group that
gathered for the Nov. 1 tea.
Lt. Lesa Welliver, staff chaplain at
NBVC, led the event, which also included
performances by singer Lisa Zimmerman
and the Covenant Players, as well as re-
freshments served on white-linen table-
cloths and china.
Barreto talked about the day in 2002
when she was diagnosed the first time with
breast cancer. Frustrated with a lack of
breast cancer educational resources and
support, she formed Ribbons of Life —
and then turned to her own organization
10 years later when she was diagnosed
again.
Rosolek was also diagnosed in 2002;
Swaney in 2010.
During the tea, the three held a panel
discussion during which they talked about
their experiences with the medical profes-
sion, insurance companies, their families
and their own bodies.
“I knew I’d lose my hair,” Rosolek said
about undergoing chemotherapy. “But
losing my eyelashes? That was crush-
ing.”
They talked about the emotional tur-
moil of their diagnosis and shared the
ways they have coped.
Swaney immersed herself in research;
Barreto turned to writing.
All agreed that life’s day-to-day incon-
veniences —once easily dealt with by three
capable, strong women — became chal-
lenging.
“Guess what? The car still breaks down,”
they noted. “You can’t say, ‘I don’t deserve
this because I’ve got breast cancer!’”
They also talked about both their nega-
tive and positive reactions to words prof-
fered up by well-meaning souls — words
like “You’re going to be just fine” — and
when receiving “non-helpful” e-mails
about howto prevent cancer. Swaney sug-
gested the best response she received to
her diagnosis were the words, “We’ll get
through this together.”
The most important thing to remember,
they noted, is that no two women will act
the same throughout the journey of diag-
nosis, treatment and recovery.
“Every woman comes to breast cancer
with a different set of life circumstances,”
Barreto said.
Added Rosolek, “You do the best you
can with what you have.”

Life, visit www.ribbonsventura.org.

Nearly 50 runners take off at the start of the Turkey Trot 5K Thursday, Nov. 21, the last
lunchtime run of the year sponsored by Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
During the Thursday, Nov. 21, Turkey
Trot at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme, Doug Messmer
ran afoul of … well, no, he just ran a
fowl.
For the 26 minutes and 39 seconds it
took Messmer to finish the 5K run, he
wore a turkey hat that flapped its wings
and shook its tail feathers every time he
took a step.
A longstanding tradition he can’t part
with?
“No, I’ve only had it about two weeks,”
he said.
Perhaps a gift from someone whose
heart he couldn’t break?
“No, I got it off Amazon.”
Was this a finale for feathered fash-
ion?
No, he plans to wear it again for the Los
Angeles Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving
Day.
The military retiree who now works for
Naval Facilities Engineering and Expedi-
tionary Warfare Center flew into 15th
place at the last lunchtime run of the
year.
Coming in first with a time of 19 min-
utes, 48 seconds was Lt. Cmdr. Rob Allen,
executive officer of Navy Cargo Handling
Battalion 14.
The first woman to cross the finish line
was Jill Geertsema, spouse of Cmdr. Cam-
eron Geertsema, the commanding officer
of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
5, who was there to cheer on her and oth-
ers in the race. Geertsema’s time was 23:06.
A newcomer to the lunchtime 5Ks, the
experienced runner — she has taken part
in several half marathons — arrived on
base three months ago.
Turkey Trot T-shirts were available for
$10.
Hats were not being sold. In that cate-
gory, there was simply no competition.

In an effort to reduce energy consump-
tion and costs, the start of the heating
season at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) is being delayed two weeks.
In addition, all prior approvals for
portable heaters are now canceled and
new requests must be filed.
Heating plants will be activated begin-
ning Dec. 2, and all will be operational
no later than Dec. 16. At the same time,
air conditioning systems that are not
required for controlling the environment
or critical equipment will be secured.
During fiscal year 2014, thermostats
must be set no higher than 66 degrees
during heating season and no lower than
78 degrees during cooling season.
All portable heaters are being col-
lected by each building’s building energy
monitor and secured until authorization
is obtained. A written request with val-
id justification must be submitted via
the applicant’s commanding officer to
the Public Works Department. Valid
justifications include a written note from
a physician with a medical reason for
using a portable space heater, or confir-
mation that people work in spaces that
cannot achieve 66 degrees — warehous-
es and hangars excluded.
New authorizations will be valid for
one year. Once a person has received
written authorization to use a space
heater, one may be requested from the
building energy monitor.

Tom Santoianni, 982-4075.

Tax season is right around the corner,
and the Self-Service Tax Assistance Pro-
gram needs your help.
This all-volunteer program is dedi-
cated to helping active duty service
members, military dependents and re-
tirees prepare their federal and state
income tax returns. Without volunteers,
service members and their families will
have to pay $100 or more to a tax pre-
parer. The program is sponsored each
year by the Region Legal Service Office,
Detachment Ventura, at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
New volunteers are needed. All vol-
unteers will receive free training to be-
come federal and California state tax
preparers. Training is usually the first
two weeks in January.

Navy families seeking information about
services in Ventura County for people with
special needs could find what they needed
— or learn where to go to get it — as
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) held
an Exceptional Family Member Program
(EFMP) resource fair Saturday, Nov.
16.
The event startedat noonoutside NBVC
Port Hueneme’s NeedhamTheater, where
a sensory-friendly showing of “Cloudy
with a Chance of Meatballs 2” began at
2 p.m. The sound was turned down, the
lights stayed on and the audience was
asked to be understanding of people who
roamed the theater or talked during the
movie.
Corey Kendrick of the Fleet & Family
Support Center (FFSC), which runs the
EFMP and organized the resource fair,
said the event was a way to connect Navy
families who aren’t familiar with services
in the area with the groups that provide
those services. Navywide, more than
16,000 families are enrolled in the EFMP
program.
Among the organizations that brought
in displays were the Autism Society Ven-
tura County and the RainbowConnection
Family Resource Center.
First 5, which provides health and edu-
cational opportunities to children young-
er than 5 and their parents, and the NBVC
school liaison officer were also at the
event.
“This is just a fraction of what’s actu-
ally out there, but it is a starting point for
our families,” Kendrick said.
Bill Burke, who is on the board of the
Autism Society Ventura County and
staffed a display table at the resource fair,
said he was fully behind the effort to get
military families any help they need.
“It’s important that they know support
is available,” said Burke, the father of an
18-year-old who was diagnosed with au-
tism at the age of 4. “It’s stressful enough
in our family; I can’t imagine what it’s like
for military families, with all the sacri-
fices they’re making.”
Burke also stressed the importance of
autism awareness.
“If families are aware early on about
the signs of autism, they might be able
to spot it earlier,” he said. “And early
intervention is critical.”
Elizabeth Groves, whose husband,
Keith, is a commander in the Navy Re-
serves, brought her 6-year-old son,
Pierce, to the resource fair. Pierce and
his classmates at Bard Elementary
School are learning about empathy and
the need to understand other people’s
feelings.
“I thought this would be a unique op-
portunity,” she said as Burke spent sev-
eral minutes talking with Pierce about
autism.

NSWC PHD
Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hue-
neme Division (NSWC PHD) celebrated
Disability Awareness Month by hosting a
“People with Disabilities” event Oct. 31,
which was co-sponsored by the command’s
Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Focus
Group and the Command Morale, Welfare
and Recreation group.
Several videos on the topic of disabilities
in the workforce were the main focus of
the event.
Jacqueline Collymore, PWD Focus
Group chairperson, kicked off the event
by welcoming and thanking those in at-
tendance and introducing NSWC PHD’s
commanding officer, Capt. Burt Espe, who
addressed the audience with inspiring
words.
“The intent of this special observance
of Disability Awareness Month is to make
everyone aware that we need to see past an
individual’s disability,” Espe said, “and
instead look at the person and focus on
their abilities.”
This message, he said, is the essence of
this year’s theme of the Defense Equal Op-
portunity Management Institute (DEO-
MI): “Because We Are Equal to the
Task.”
Espe introduced a video about a woman
who has been disabled since childhood but
has learned to work and live her life as an
able-bodied person. Throughout the video,
the woman shows that she can performthe
duties of her job as well as day-to-day ac-
tivities with few accommodations.
Two more videos followed. The first was
a 30-second, comedic clip about how the
differences every person brings to the
workplace contribute to a more successful
end result. The final video focused on a
disabled high school boy who had a love
for basketball and how his team and an
opposing team came together to help him
score a basket at the end of a game.
All the videos highlighted “something
that we should all understand and em-
brace,”said Espe, “that all employees bring
their own unique talents, education and
skills to the workplace. We are all here to
support the fleet, and we all contribute to
that end.”

Nine junior-sized pieces of circuit-
training weightlifting equipment have
found a home at the Camarillo Youth
Center, the result being a teen gym that’s
getting a workout after school.
“This is a good way to get more teens
coming to the center,” said Brett Lane,
youth director of the center at Catalina
Heights, the military housing complex in
Camarillo.
The nine Life Fitness pieces — all
scaled-down versions of adult equipment
— were found in a warehouse over the
summer. Child and Youth Programs
(CYP) and Morale, Welfare and Recre-
ation (MWR) worked together to set
everything up in an underutilized room
at the center, and now the room — luck-
ily one with five windows — is a thriving
teen gym.
Every Tuesday at 4 p.m., a dozen
youngsters take part in a teen fitness pro-
gram, warming up and stretching out
before starting in on the machines.
There’s no cost to use the gym, but the
teens must be registered with the CYP
Teen Center, which is open from 3:30 to
7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Teens must also be trained on each
piece of equipment.
“You can’t have kids in here trying to
show off,” Lane explained. “They’ve got
to know their limits and have a positive
attitude.”
Lane said the equipment is a big help
to not only the young athlete who’s trying
to increase fitness levels for a certain
sport, but also the teen who wants to
simply improve his or her body image.
“We’re hoping kids can use this equip-
ment to help obtain their goals, what-
ever they are,” Lane said. “They learn
that they can increase reps or tension and
get stronger, and they can see the results.
They look in the mirror and they feel
good about themselves.”
Lane called the gym an oasis in the
drama and self-doubt that often fills a
teen’s world.
“A lot of kids have a hesitation about
gyms,” he said. “They don’t know how
to use the stuff. They’re worried they
won’t look cool. Here, in this setting, they
can feel comfortable.”
The workouts often lead to meaningful
conversations about healthy lifestyle hab-
its and eating habits, Lane said.
Food labeling was one recent topic.
“We agreed that if you can’t pronounce
half the stuff on the label, chances are
it’s not the best thing for you,” Lane
said.
In the gym, teens must follow certain
rules, such as wearing proper workout
clothes, wiping down each machine after
using it and listening to music that’s been
approved by the staff.
“When the kindergartners through
fifth-graders are around, they can only
play what they’d play around Grandma,”
Lane said. “After 5:30, they can play only
the clean versions that are on the ra-
dio.”
The equipment includes a chest press,
triceps press, biceps curl, seated row,
shoulder press, lat pulldown, leg exten-
sion, seated leg curl and squat.
“The circuit training gets the core, the
arms, the legs, the back and everything
in between,” Lane said.
He noted that a 6-foot-5, 280-pound
17-year-old would do just fine in Warfield
Gym at Naval Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme, but most teens aren’t built like
that.
“The equipment we have here is de-
signed for teens —it’s not as large as what
adults use — so it reduces the chance of
injuries,” he said. “These pieces are de-
signed for developing bodies.”

NAWCWD Public Affairs
If it weren’t for an improvised
explosive device (IED) planted in
a taxicab alongside a traffic circle
in the Iraqi city of Mosul, retired
Army Capt. EivindForsethwould
still be front and center on the
battlefield.
Instead, an explosion at point-
blank range in January 2005 ren-
dered his right hand paralyzed
and his arm nearly motionless.
Yet 23 surgeries and three years
of recovery did not take away
Forseth’s passion for supporting
his brothers and sisters still out
there on the front lines.
“I knew my Army career was
coming to an end, but I also knew
that I wanted to stay in the fight,”
he said. “I still wanted to use my
background, specialized training
and my tactical experience to sup-
port the warfighter.”
That attitude eventually led
him to the Naval Air Warfare
Center Weapons Division (NAW-
CWD). It was a long and bumpy
road from where he grew up in
Billings, Mont., to Naval Base
Ventura County, Point Mugu, but
Forseth said he’s right where he
needs to be.
“I’m so grateful to NAVAIR
and NAWCWDfor the opportu-
nities I’ve had,” he said. “I hon-
estly don’t know where I’d be if
I weren’t here.”
Forseth did two semesters at
Montana State University-Bill-
ings before enlisting in the Army
in 1993. He served an extended
European tour in Germany from
1994 to 1998, including a 12-
month tour in Bosnia-Herze-
govina.
Looking to try a different path,
Forseth separated fromthe Army
in 1998 and earned a bachelor’s
degree in English from the Uni-
versity of California-Riverside.
He wanted to be an educator, and
his plan was to follow in his
mother’s footsteps to be an Eng-
lish teacher.
Just before graduation, his
mother was approaching retire-
ment after 38 years of teaching.
She advised him to rethink his
plan. With a degree in hand,
Forseth reenlisted in the Army in
2003 andwas commissionedupon
graduation from Officer Candi-
date School.
“I thought, here’s my chance
to provide strong, competent
leadership to Soldiers who were
heading off to war in Iraq,” he
said.
After Infantry Officer Basic
Course and Ranger School, Fors-
eth deployed to Iraq in 2004 in
support of Operation Iraqi Free-
dom. On Jan. 4, 2005, Forseth
was leading his platoon back
from a casualty evacuation mis-
sion when he was severely wound-
ed by an IED, for which he was
later awarded the Purple Heart.
Forseth was put into a drug-
induced coma for six days and
sent to Walter Reed Army Med-
ical Center in Washington, D.C.
He was in and out of Walter Reed
fromJanuary 2005 until he retired
from the Army in March 2008.
Forseth said that when the doc-
tors told him his right hand was
going to be paralyzed, he went
into an angry and depressed state,
knowing he would not be able to
do a lot of things that he had en-
joyed before the attack. One of
those things was fly fishing, which
his father taught him at the age
of 14.
“It was our family sport, and I
wanted to teach my son how to
fly fish,” he said.
While at Walter Reed, Forseth
became acquainted with a retired
Navy captain who wanted to start
a fly-fishing program. Forseth
was reluctant to get involved be-
cause he was having a hard time
adapting to activities of daily liv-
ing.
“I was afraid I would fail, and
I just couldn’t face more failure,”
he said.
He finally gave in and figured
out ways to adapt to tying the
flies and casting.
What began as a “rag-tag group
of blown up wounded warriors
who wanted to fish” has devel-
oped into a nonprofit organiza-
tion with 150 programs in 47
states that has touched more than
4,000 veterans and wounded war-
riors. Forseth was a founding
member of what became Project
Healing Waters Fly Fishing. He
currently serves as the president
of its Veterans Advisory Coun-
cil.
“I remember the first time I
adaptively caught a trout,” he
said. “That moment really turned
things around for me. I attribute
that program to saving my life
because once you see that you can
adapt in one area, that mentality

NSWC PHD
In collaboration with team members
fromacross the Navy and Missile Defense
Agency, employees from Naval Surface
Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division
(NSWC PHD) shared in the Oct. 17 hon-
or of receiving the Department of Defense
(DoD) David Packard Excellence in Ac-
quisition Award.
This award was bestowed upon the Air
and Missile Defense Radar Programteam
and is the highest award that can be given
to a DoD acquisition program.
NSWCPHDemployees Zachary Green-
bauer and Barry Newland earned this
award as members of the team.
The David Packard Award is given an-
nually to organizations that have demon-
strated exemplary performance and in-
novation in acquiring and delivering
products and capabilities to the warfight-
er. This year’s award acknowledges years
of effort in research, development, system
engineering, modeling and simulation, test
and evaluation, and execution of an ef-
fective acquisition strategy for the air and
missile defense radar suite.
The entire effort involved an unprece-
dented level of collaboration among tech-
nical experts from across the Navy and
Missile Defense Agency engineering com-
munities. The result was an affordable air
and missile defense radar concept suitable
for installation on the DDG 51 Flight III
destroyers that enables the integrated air
and missile defense capability. It will sup-
port maritime missions for integrated air
and missile defense, providing simultane-
ous ballistic missile defense and air defense
mission capabilities.
Greenbauer served as the program’s test
and evaluation cross product team lead,
and Newland served as the logistics cross
product teamlead. Greenbauer established
the test and evaluation program that will
be executed in the upcoming engineering
and manufacturing development phase.
This effort included managing the devel-
opment of the test and evaluation master
plan, the developmental test framework
and the modeling and simulation master
plan.
“It is a great honor to receive the David
PackardExcellence inAcquisitionAward,”
he said. “Receiving this award reflects the
dedication, experience and excellence of
the entire team.”
Newland led the development of 12
mandated logistics-related plans through
the Navy and DoD approval process and
had a successful independent logistics
analysis, which earned an outstanding rat-
ing. He constructed a logistics strategy
that will ensure the program will not only
meet its availability and sustainability re-
quirements, but will also reduce future
costs associated with maintaining the sys-
tem.
“This achievement is a great recognition
for the efforts that have been put into the
program,”Newland said. “The hard work
of all the team members was paramount
to its success.”
NSWC PHD employees honored
Kenneth Harris, a supervisory elec-
tronics engineer at Naval Surface War-
fare Center, Port Hueneme Division
(NSWC PHD), received the Black En-
gineer of the Year Award (BEYA) in the
Special Recognition category Oct. 28 at
the BEYA Science, Technology, Engi-
neering and Mathematics (STEM) Glob-
al Competitiveness Conference from the
Career Communications Group.
Harris was nominated by NSWC PHD
Technical Director Timothy Troske, who
wrote about Harris’ 25-year career in
engineering and his long list of technical
and leadership accomplishments.
“Above all,” Troske said, “Mr. Harris
maintains a great work attitude in con-
junction with his exceptional leadership
skills. His resulting work is testament
to his leadership and technical capa-
bilities. His excellent interpersonal skills
assist him in establishing and maintain-
ing meaningful work relationships and
accomplishing mission readiness.”
In BEYA’s 28-year history, thousands
of America’s most creative and innova-
tive professionals have been nominated,
but fewer than 700 have achieved the
distinction of being a Black Engineer
of the Year honoree.
Throughout his more than two de-
cades of managerial direction, Harris
has accepted leadership roles in engi-
neering, equal employment opportu-
nity, customer service, mentoring and
community service He is an active vol-
unteer in the community, giving time to
groups such as the Omega Psi Phi Fra-
ternity Inc., as well as programs dedi-
cated to teaching and mentoring male
teens to guide them toward a successful
future.

344th Training Squadron Det. 1
Feeling two 8,000-horsepower, nitro-
methane-burning engines go from zero to
over 300 mph in less than four seconds:
Doesn’t this sound like a fun experi-
ence?
Instead of staying in the dorms at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, stu-
dents from the 344th Training Squadron,
Detachment 1, Vehicle Management Tech-
nical School had a chance to feel the earth-
shaking finals at the Pomona National
Hot Rod Association (NHRA) races Nov.
9 and 10. The NHRA has more than 20
professional-level competition categories,
including top fuel, funny car, pro stock
and pro stock motorcycle.
More than 60 Air Force students helped
provide security for the two-day event.
“Students receive their event shirts and
hats and provide usher, security and some-
times first-aid services,” said Tech. Sgt.
Jesse Pfieffer, who was in charge of the
students. “In the reserve sections they
check tickets and assist in making sure
spectators are in the correct sections. Stu-
dents also have to provide security at the
grandstands, ensuring handicap ramps are
free of obstructions and standing audience
members.”
Some of the detachment’s instructors
set up camp in one corner and provided
breakfast, lunch and dinner for the stu-
dents. The grill magician, Master Sgt.
Richard St. John, an instructor supervisor,
has provided the barbecued meals for five
events now.
“I enjoy cooking for the students and
the challenge of making sure they have
three meals that they will enjoy and keep
them energized,” St. John said.
The hot California day wasn’t an issue
for the students, but many in the audience
got dehydrated and even fainted. The stu-
dents made sure these spectators got wa-
ter, stayed in the shade and received med-
ical attention if necessary.
Airmen 1st Class Cameron Bonner and
Danielle Franco noticed one older man
in their section having a diabetic episode.
The airmen made sure the spectator had
some sweets and contacted a medical unit
that provided possibly life-saving mea-
sures.
Airman 1st Class Anthony Comer, who
graduated the week before the NHRA
races, had a chance to volunteer for three
days while he was waiting for orders.
“This experience was one of the coolest
things that I had the honor to be part of,”
Comer said. “The cars were loud and fast.
I’ve never seen so many people for one
event. Some you had to have lots of pa-
tience for, but at the end of the day it was
all about having a good time and provid-
ing some community connection.”
The Vehicle Management School edu-
cates more than 1,500 students each year.
Courses include basic fire truck mainte-
nance, material handling equipment main-
tenance, vehicle and equipment mainte-
nance and a fundamental automotive
mechanics program shared with Navy
students.
Twice each year for more than 13 years,
the school has provided security for the
Pomona NHRA.

Forty-one Naval Air Warfare Center
Weapons Division(NAWCWD) employees
from China Lake and Point Mugu gradu-
ated from the Engineer and Scientist De-
velopmental Program (ESDP) during an
Oct. 31 ceremony.
Scott O’Neil, NAWCWDexecutive direc-
tor, and Capt. Karl Andina, NAWCWD
vice commander, presented graduation
plaques to all graduates in attendance.
“For most of you, this journey began in
high school when you decided you wanted
to go into the technical field of work,”
O’Neil said. “It’s important to find a home
in your career, because a happy employee
is a productive employee.”
Melody Rea, an aerospace engineer at
NAWCWD, startedas a newhire inAugust
2009. She served three tours in different
divisions within the Weapons Division be-
fore arriving at her current location with
the Rolling Airframe Missile team.
“I think it’s a neat opportunity; at the
end of the day I had the chance to find
work that is the best fit for me,” Rea said.
“It is nice to be able to walk the halls and
find someone I worked with in another
code during my tours.”
The graduates have been at the Weapons
Division anywhere fromthree to five years
and have completed at least 300 hours of
technical work.
“I challenge all of you graduates to stay
current with your technology, create a 25-
year plan, have fun and go out and build
us a new Navy,” O’Neil said. “Thank you
for your time here so far, and good luck.”

NSWC PHD
Professor Stanley Car-
penter focuses on his class
material as he begins a
lecture for students en-
rolled in the “Strategy and
War”course offered at Na-
val Surface Warfare Cen-
ter, Port Hueneme Divi-
sion (NSWC PHD).
The course is part of a
graduate seminar program
offered in conjunction
with the Naval War Col-
lege in Rhode Island.
As he begins class, Car-
penter informs students
that “the purpose of this
course is to get you to
think strategically.”
This particular Oct. 22
lecture focuses on the
American Revolution. Af-
ter three weeks of intense
study on this topic, the
class will move on to an-
other historical case
study.
As the Strategy and
Policy Division head for
the College of Distance
Education at the Naval
War College, Carpenter is
a subject matter expert
who travels throughout
the United States teaching
on the topic of strategy
and war.
“Strategy and War” is
one of three 32- to 35-
week courses that students
face to earn their graduate
degree. The other two are
“Theater Security and De-
cision-Making”and “Joint
Military Operations.”
Students take one course
a year for three years un-
der the direction of a Na-
val War College adjunct
faculty member. Classes
meet once a week from
September through May
and include written exams,
extensive reading, essay
writing and class discus-
sion.
Carpenter says the pro-
gram is intense and de-
manding, with a “signifi-
cant amount of work
outside the classroom.”
The course of study is
designed to give civilian
and military employees an
executive-level, global per-
spective of national policy
and strategy, national se-
curity decision-making
and joint maritime opera-
tions. Upon completion,
the students will be able to
develop a coherent frame-
work for analysis of deci-
sions involving the use of
force to achieve national
objectives.
Since fiscal 2000, NSWC
PHD has provided civilian
employees (GS-11 and
above) and military offi-
cers (active duty and re-
serve, 03 and above) from
local naval commands
with the opportunity to
participate in this post-
baccalaureate program.
With the completion of
all three courses, students
are awarded a command
and staff diploma from
the Naval War College and
a Joint Professional Mili-
tary Education Phase I
Certification. With the
completion of seven ad-
ditional credits offered
on-line, students can re-
ceive a master’s degree in
security and strategic stud-
ies.

KADENA AIR BASE, Japan – Seabees
from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3joinedthousands of other service
members, volunteers, supporters andathletes
gathered at the Risner Fitness Center at
KadenaAir Base inOkinawa, Japan, tokick
off the14thannual KadenaSpecial Olympics
(KSO) Saturday, Nov. 2.
More than 20 Seabees volunteered more
than50 hours eachtocleanthe grounds and
set up1,000 chairs, 120 tables and37 tents in
order to host nearly 850 athletes and their
supporters. The volunteers began their sup-
port a week prior to the event, which drew
more than5,000people, makingit the largest
Special Olympics outside of the United
States.
AccordingtoAir ForceMaster Sgt. Thom-
as Flammger, the event’s volunteer coordina-
tor, Seabees were sought out because of their
abilitytocommit toataxingvolunteer work-
load.
“Eachyear the Seabees provide something
other forces inthe areacan’t, andthat is con-
sistency,”said Flammger.
All 20 NMCB 3 volunteers put in a full
week of support – eight hours each day – to
help set up. The group also helped with the
KSO’s 18 different athletic events the day of
the Olympics, and the Seabees helped clean
up the day after.
“This is the biggest event the 18th Wing
hosts, andit cannot happenwithjust the Air
Force alone,”Flammger said.
Volunteers fromthe Navy, Marine Corps,
Air Force andArmy providedlogistical sup-
port and equipment. Supporters from each
branch also cheered on the athletes as they
arrived, during all athletic events and until
theywere safelyontheir wayhome at the end
of the day.
According to Air Force Maj. Christopher
Smith, the KSO’s director of operations, the
event helped service members reaffirm the
military’s goal of being a positive influence
to our valuable host nation and ally.
Last year, Smith volunteered as a KSO
“Hugger.” Huggers arevolunteers whoassist
andencouragespecial-needs athletes fromthe
beginningof thedayuntil thelast competitive
event. They participate hand-in-hand and
never leave each other’s side.
Huggers fromNMCB3 showed up to the
event full of energyandreadytosupport their
athletes as the buses pulled up to the Risner
Fitness Center.
“I had such a great time with my athlete,”
said Equipment Operator 1st Class Angel
Laracuente. “I enjoy volunteering for events
like this because it helps keep me ground-
ed.”
Each Seabee, along with the athlete and
family, was assignedatranslator tohelpthem
communicate better.
“The language barrier was a little frustrat-
ing at first, but after awhile I learned what
worked best and became more comfortable
withmyathlete,”saidConstructionElectrician
Construction Apprentice Raven Hill. “I had
so much fun, and my athlete did great!”
Smith said the Seabees’ effort and reliabil-
ity were critical to the event’s success.
“Theyaresilent heroes,”Smithsaidas Sea-
bees built the last tent. “Seabees really know
howto make things happen.”
KSO was established by the 18th Wing
Commander in 1999 as an avenue to build
relations withneighboring communities and
local government representativeswhileprovid-
ing a meaningful activity for special needs
children and adults.
Seabees assigned to Okinawa are consis-
tently called upon to assist the annual KSO

NMCB 3
DILI, Timor-Leste – When
volunteer English teacher Lt.
Brent Oglesby of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB)
3 picked up an acoustic guitar
belonging to a Timorese college
student, he didn’t realize the edu-
cational impact “Knockin’ on
Heaven’s Door”by Guns N’ Ros-
es was about to have.
As he played that Tuesday, Oct.
29, the students at the Universi-
dade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e
campus sang along to every word,
performing pitch-perfect enun-
ciation, correct verb usage and
seamless parallel structure be-
tween like word suffixes —as well
as the lyrics would allow, any-
way.
These complex themes of the
English language are difficult to
teach, especially when the instruc-
tors are volunteers from a con-
struction battalion who don’t
speak Tetum, Timor-Leste’s na-
tional language.
“I love to sing with my brother
and the other students here at the
school,”said student Leonidu De
Silva. “When we study, it becomes
difficult. When we are able to talk
to the Americans and sing with
them, we learn better English. It
helps a lot.”
Oglesby is the officer-in-charge
of NMCB 3’s construction civic
action detail (CCAD) in Timor-
Leste, and Seabee volunteers
visit the school one day each
week. During the actual classes,
they break into groups and help
the Timorese students complete
conversational exercises.
The lead instructor, Australian
native Jane Thomas, said the class
works thanks to the Seabee vol-
unteers.
“There have been times where
I simply can’t make it to teach,
and I’ve been able to pass along
the resources to the Seabees,”
Thomas said. “They come, in-
struct the class and really do a
rather amazing job. The other
battalions who have come here
have always lent a hand, and we
appreciate themall, truly, but the
current battalion, NMCB 3,
makes such a strong effort to be
here each and every week. It’s
been great being able to rely on
them so consistently.”
Thomas said that Timorese
students recognize the impor-
tance of learning English. They
understand English as the inter-
national language and feel learn-
ing it will make them more com-
petitive for higher paying
employment.
The classes are conversation-
ally based, adapting difficult les-
sons, such as verb conjugation,
into simple verbal interactions.
Through these exercises, the Sea-
bees and Timorese learn about
each other and develop a deeper
connection.
NMCB 3 volunteers took this
a step further by singing popular
songs with them. During these
sing-alongs, the Seabee volunteers
point out what the students are
learning and howit applies to the
lyrics.
These moments, simple in na-
ture and found across any conti-
nent, serve as building blocks,
strengthening U.S. and Timor-
Leste relations critical to ensuring
peace and stability in the still-de-
veloping country.
“It’s extremely important for
the Seabees to do what they are
doing,” said Capt. Rod Moore,
commodore of the 30th Naval
Construction Regiment (NCR).
“We are trying to demonstrate the
U.S.’s commitment to the region
and promote regional stability
and security. In order to do that,
we have to build, foster and sus-
tain real relationships. So, by
coming to the college and helping
these kids learn English, we are
developing those relationships at
a local level.”

Construction Battalion 5 hauls out a 50-
pound bag of potatoes for distribution
as part of a massive Thanksgiving dinner
giveaway Saturday, Nov. 23, at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
cian 1st Class William Russell of Fleet
Readiness Center Southwest, Detach-
ment Point Mugu, echoed that. He and
his wife, Misty, not only have five chil-
dren, but they’re also dealing with Russell
leaving in two weeks for a deployment.
“This is my last holiday before my
cruise,” he said, adding that he appreci-
ates the efforts to make life easier for
military families.
“This is a great thing to do,” he said.
“A pie here, a turkey there — it all
helps.”
The food giveaways take place month-
ly on base, but November’s and Decem-
ber’s are the largest ones of the year, said
Matilda Ahearn — better known as Miss
Tilly. She has coordinated the distribu-
tions for 31 years and, at 89, has no inten-
tions of stopping.
The third Saturday of every month, she
makes sure cans and boxes are picked up
from the Ventura County food bank and
taken to Bldg. 19. There are usually 250
to 300 families that stop by between 9
a.m. and 2 p.m.
To qualify for the free food, families
must be active duty E-6 and below with
spouse; E-7 with two or more dependents;
or a custodian of a child who is a family
member of active duty personnel on de-
ployment.
This month, the giveaways included a
turkey, two cans of green beans, a can of
mushroom soup, a box of stuffing, rolls
and a five-pound bag of potatoes. Early
birds could also pick up a pie — pump-
kin, pecan, cherry, apple or Dutch ap-
ple.
Distributing all that food requires a
crew of volunteers — and someone to
coordinate their efforts. This year, Chief
Construction Mechanic Alfred Ozuna
of the Naval Facilities Engineering and
Expeditionary Warfare Center took on
the task.
Volunteers guided the long line of
families — a line that, at one point,
stretched all the way to Pacific Road
— and helped carry their laundry bas-
kets full of food. Many in the line were
young moms with strollers, trying to
juggle toddlers and babies while their
husbands were deployed. Students at the
Naval Construction Training Center
(NCTC) and other volunteers helped
them carry everything back to their
cars.
“I’m really enjoying this,” said Con-
struction Mechanic Constructionman
Falcon Allaire, an A School student at
the NCTC who was volunteering to help
the families. “People are friendly and
nice.”
December’s giveaway will be from 9
a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21.

free turkeys, trimmings go to base families
This is a great thing
to do. A pie here, a
turkey there — it all
helps.

The Fleet & Family
Support Center
The two-day Accessing Higher Educa-
tion class — meant to assist those who
want to pursue an associate’s, bachelor’s,
or master’s degree — is now being offered
quarterly at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty.
The Higher Education Track was devel-
oped to provide additional information
for separating and retiring service mem-
bers who have attended the five-day Tran-
sition GPS class and who are planning
ahead for their academic futures. But this
class is helpful to all.
The course guides service members
through the process of researching degree
programs, comparing accredited colleges
and examining a range of funding options,
including the GI Bill, the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and
scholarships.
Our September pilot class was well-re-
ceived from attendees with various edu-
cational backgrounds who found that it
offered great resources and information,
regardless of where they were in the edu-
cational process.
Upcoming dates are Dec. 10-11 and
March 26-27. Call us at 805-982-5037 or
contact your Command Career Coun-
selor to register. Please keep in mind that
transitioning service members have prior-
ity registration.

for the Fleet & Family Support Center at Naval

Seabees from Underwater Construction Team (UCT) 2 examine the first 100 feet
of a 250-foot rubble mound breakwater they’re building in Timor-Leste. UCT-2
is working with Timor Leste’s Maritime Police Unit (MPU), Australia’s Defence
Cooperation Program, the Timor Leste Defense Force and Seabees from NMCB
3 to construct the breakwater and floating small boat pier, which will enhance
the MPU’s ability to launch and recover small boats.

Holiday season is upon us and it’s time
to pull out the decorations. Here are
some tips to make sure you and your fam-
ily stay fire-safe during the holiday sea-
son.
Holiday lights
• Inspect holiday lights each year for
frayed wires, bare spots and broken or
cracked sockets before putting them up.
• Do not overload electrical outlets.
• Don’t link more than three light
strands together. Connect strings of lights
to an extension cord.
• Never leave holiday lights on unat-
tended.
Holiday decorations
• Use only non-flammable or flame
retardant decorations.
• Keep decorations at least 3 feet away
from heating devices.
• Never place wrapping paper in the
fireplace.
• Never leave candles unattended.
Christmas trees
• Do not place your tree close to a heat
source, hallway or door.
• If you buy a live tree, needles should
be green and hard to pull back from the
branches.
• Keep the tree stand filled with water
at all times.
• Dispose of your tree by taking it to
a recycling center or having it hauled
away by a community pickup service.
Finally, as in every season, have work-
ing smoke alarms installed on every
level of your home, test them monthly
and keep them equipped with fresh bat-
teries. Know when and how to call for
help.
Remember, too, to practice your home
escape plan.
For additional information on fire
safety for the home or office, contact the
Fire Prevention Office at Naval Base Ven-
tura County at 989-7034.
Safety tips for holiday season
Use common sense
when it comes to trees,
decorations, lights

For the seventh year in a row, Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) kicked off
the holiday season with a tree-lighting
ceremony in the Navy Exchange at NBVC
Port Hueneme.
Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding of-
ficer of the base, rang a bell shortly after
5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, and the lights
of the 14-foot tree flickered on.
“Naval Base Ventura County is a very,
very special place,” Vasquez said during
the ceremony, which also featured Christ-
mas carols and a candle giveaway.
The store’s general manager, Anna Es-
guerra, called the event “a special way to
kick off the season.”
Upcoming events on base offer families
the opportunity to not only have fun with
other families, but also to help others this
holiday season. Here’s what’s planned in
the coming weeks:

tinue his Operation Holiday Gift Drop,

idential streets, starting at Regulus and

transfers into other activities of daily liv-
ing.”
Before retiring, Forsethtookpart inapro-
gram called Operation Warfighter. Spon-
sored by the Secretary of Defense, the pro-
gram allowed active duty military to do
internships with intelligence agencies like
HomelandSecurity, theNational Reconnais-
sance Office, and the National Geospatial-
Intelligence Agency (NGA), where Forseth
wouldsoonfindhis first civilianjobworking
expeditionary operations.
He stayed with NGA from 2008 to 2010
before deciding to move west. His desire to
be closer to family in California led him to
NAWCWD. Forsethreachedout tohisArmy
Wounded Warrior advocate, who told him
about a meet-and-greet event for wounded
warriors at NAWCWD.
Forsethsubmittedhis resume inJuly2010,
was sooninvitedfor interviews at bothNAW-
CWD sites, China Lake and Point Mugu,
and was offered a job in October. He began
working at Point Mugu in January 2011 as
an intelligence analyst with the NAWCWD
Intelligence Division. Later that year, he
transferredtothe Tactical InformationSys-
tems Branch where he worked on Electron-
ic Warfare Data Systems (EWDS). From
there, he movedontobe a missionleadand
fleet liaisoninthe Avionics Department, and
he recently took on his current job as a sea
range test manager.
Thomas Bluhm, a computer scientist in
the EWDSLaboratory at Point Mugu, said
Forseth motivates so many people with his
positive attitude.
“Eivindis extremelymotivatedtohelpthe
warfighter,” Bluhm said. “His uniformed
military service was extensively served in
combat so he really knows what goes on in
the field, what the stakes are, and just how
important our work here at NAWCWD is
to supporting the warfighter.”
Bluhm said it’s important that folks see
wounded warriors for what they can do in-
stead of what they can’t do.
“It’s evident that Eivindis awoundedwar-
rior,”Bluhmsaid. “However, the limiteduse
of his right armis overwhelmedby all of his
other strengths and experiences with the
enemy in combat that are so important and
relevant to our work here.”
Forseth encourages other wounded war-
riors to get out of their comfort zones and
stay open to all opportunities.
“Donot be afraidtogive a commandlike
NAWCWDa try,”he said. “It doesn’t mat-
ter if electronic warfare is not your back-
ground; it doesn’t matter if you are not an
engineer or a computer scientist. There are
so many other things that you can do here.
There are resources to get the training, cer-
tifications and credentials you need to do
this work.”
Forseth said there are many benefits to
hiring a wounded warrior.
“We have the background, and we speak
the language,” he said. “We have skills that
NAVAIRneeds to be successful in support-
ing the warfighter.”
He addedthat most woundedwarriors are
highly trained with battlefield experience.
“These men and women have actually
lookedthe enemyinthe face,”he said. “They
know what the threats are and what the re-
quirements are because they have hadboots
onthe ground. Theyare able toconveythose
things to NAVAIR managers, analysts and
engineers who are working to meet require-
ments for warfighters. It makes a big differ-
ence whenyouhave that insight. We bring a
sense of urgency and reality that others
can’t.”
One of the challenges that Forseth faced
was going from the battlefield to behind a
desk.
“It’s a toughadjustment for warriors who
are truly wounded in combat,”he said. “We
are woundedbecause we are out front —we
arethetipof thespear. Whenyouarewound-
edlike that andcannolonger returntoduty,
that’s aninvoluntarytransfer fromwhat you
want to be doing.”
Forseth said he found the next best thing
tobeingout front —research, development,
acquisition and test and evaluation.
“I’m fortunate to have found positions at
NAVAIR that impact the warfighter right
now,” he said. “It’s a great feeling and very
rewarding for me to be able to support the
warfighter immediately.”
Working with NAVAIR, Forseth said he
learnedthat he doesn’t necessarilyhave tobe
on the tip of the spear to make a difference.
“Behindeverywarrior onthe front line are
tens of thousands of people supporting
them,”he said. “I hadmytime out front, but
now I can work hard in the office and still
make a difference.”

05 8UNDAY, NOV. 22, 2009 THE 8TAF
FARMERS MARKET
Aooe kz||zs í 5pec|z| to Ihe 5tzr
The Moorpark Co¦¦ege
farners narket had
few booths and fewer
custoners on a recent
8aturday, despìte c¦osure
of the Hìgh 8treet narket.
Moorpark vcndor
vcnucs arc dormant
1wo markets |ust miles
apart in Moorpark seemed
overly ambitious for a rela-
tively small community.
Kerry Clasby appar-
ently feels the same way,
because as of the second
week in November, the
High Street farmers mar-
ket is closed.
¨I'm hoping to find a
better location, closer to
the 118 to draw better
crowds, where I can re-
open in March," she said.
Unfortunately for Moor-
park, the farmers market
at Moorpark College is
also struggling. On a re-
cent Saturday, there were
only eight booths offering
goods for sale.
Callie \anden-Bossche,
reading a book while she
waited for customers at
the Creen Farms booth
out of Lompoc, said busi-
ness ¨is not very good."
Karen Schott of the
\entura County Certified
Farmers' Market Associa-
tion recently announced
the Moorpark market was
granted an extension to
its temporary use permit,
keeping it open through
the holiday season, which
it is hoped will attract
shoppers from 1housand
Oaks, where the farmers
market is closed for the
holidays.
