The Chapel of Faith at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Point Mugu is closing its doors, a victim of declining attendance,
staffing issues and tightening budgets.
While the sanctuary will still be available for baptisms, memo-
rials and funerals, the last regular services will be held Easter
Sunday, April 27.
Roman Catholic and Protestant services will continue at the
Seabee Chapel at NBVC Port Hueneme.

Q: Why is it that we get so many power outages at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme? Days after
we have a planned outage to upgrade wiring, power goes
down all day, then again a couple of weeks later.
A: Thank you for the opportunity to address this issue
and for your patience
Our Public Works Department is hard at work and has a
long-term plan to replace, repair or upgrade the infrastruc-
ture at NBVC. The utilities infrastructure had a planned
life of 50 years before replacement and is well past that, in
some areas, at 70-plus years. We cannot afford to complete-
ly replace the electrical lines at Port Hueneme and Point
Mugu at one time, but we are repairing sections as funding
becomes available. Unfortunately, funding is a hurdle we
are struggling to overcome, as are shore installations across
the country.
The Chief of Naval Operations’ frst tenet is “Warfght-
ing First.” As a result, the Navy is taking a risk at the shore
to ensure continued operations at sea. Funding for preven-
tive maintenance has taken a big hit, and we have experi-
enced the effects as our infrastructure suffers. The recent
planned outages were coordinated to upgrade our electrical
lines and were successful. The most recent unplanned out-
age occurred during removal of older lines, and the other
was a catastrophic failure of a transformer, a major part
of the electrical distribution system. Public Works did an
amazing job of coordinating with Southern California Edi-
son and local contractors to repair and restore electricity in
eight hours for a condition that normally requires 10 to 12
hours to repair.
We will continue to upgrade our services as funding is
available and will move quickly when failures occur. As
budget concerns begin to relax, we hope that preventive
measures will be funded in the future.
The NBVC Facebook page has been the most effec-
tive way to get the word out during power outages, but we
would like your feedback if there is a better way to commu-
nicate with our Sailors and their families.
Do you have questions or suggestions? You can submit
them via this forum at lighthouse@navy.mil, online using
the CO’s Suggestion Box at http://cnic.navy.mil/ventura/in-
dex.htm or at www.Facebook.com/NavalBaseVenturaCoun-

The TRICARE Service Center (TSC)
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
is one of 189 walk-in centers nationwide
that will close April 1.
The service center is in a trailer between
the Naval Branch Health Clinic and the
baseball fields at NBVC Port Hueneme.
There is no TSC at NBVC Point Mugu.
Manager Carla Cotsis said an average
of 750 people visit the center each month.
Those people will now use the Internet or
make toll-free phone calls if they need to
contact TRICARE.
“Since the first TRICAREService Cen-
ter opened in the mid 1990s, we’ve seen a
shift in how you get information,” the
TRICARE website states in announcing
the closures. “With today’s technology,

Nearly 2,000 pounds of electronic waste
— from boxy television sets and cell
phones to a vacuum cleaner and a coffee
maker — were recycled Tuesday, Jan. 14,
as the Naval Construction Training Cen-
ter (NCTC) partnered with Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) to host a free
e-waste recycling event.
Government property could not be re-
cycled at this event; only household waste
was accepted.
“This is a good way to help our housing
residents,” explained Cmdr. Dan Cook,
commanding officer of NCTC. “We rec-
ognize that it is more convenient for many
people to have this opportunity on
base.”
This was the third e-waste recycling
event organized by Angela Mora, the en-
vironmental coordinator at NCTC.
As with previous events, this one yield-
ed old DVD players and printers, but no

It’s a long drive from Naval Base Ven-
tura County to Neillsville, Wis., but the
impression of a Soldier’s boot might nar-
row that 2,067-mile gap.
A retired lieutenant commander who
works at the Naval Facilities Engineering
and Expeditionary Warfare Center (NAV-
FAC EXWC) is bringing word of the
bootprint to California.
Over the Presidents Day Weekend,
Deputy Emergency Management Officer
Paul Kokosz will bicycle down 46 miles
of coastline in an effort to raise money for
the Persian Gulf Tribute in his home state
of Wisconsin.
He’s hoping the ride will bring attention
to both the bootprint-shaped memorial
and the Persian Gulf War of two decades
ago as well as the more recent conflicts in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
“This isn’t a Wisconsin-only memorial,”
Kokosz says of the bootprint, which is
part of a larger veterans memorial park
called The Highground. “This is a place
for healing. It’s what any memorial is
about — the ones in D.C., everywhere.
There are no geographical limits on where
healing happens.”
The Persian Gulf Tribute is the newest
addition to a park that broke ground in

Seabees assigned to Naval
Mobile Construction Battal-
ion (NMCB) 3’s Construction
Civic Action Detail (CCAD)
in Tonga reached the halfway
point Wednesday, Dec. 18, in
their construction of a new
community center and disaster
response center in Te’ekiu.
Seabees have teamed up
with the Tonga Defense Force
(TDF) to build the 710-square-
meter structure that will pro-
vide Te’ekiu residents with a
place to find safe shelter dur-
ing storms and hold commu-
nity events.
“Our community doesn’t
have the money to pay for
things like this,” said Tevide
Tewaho, a Te’ekiu resident
and father of three. “During
a hurricane or something like
that we would gather in our
chapel. Now, with this new
center, we feel much safer. My
family is very thankful to the
Navy.”
The solid cement structure
is framed in high-density steel
with a concrete foundation. Its
construction took a wide
range of engineering trades
that required efficient team-
work between the TDS-Seabee
team.
“They’ve become our
friends,” said Equipment Op-
erator 3rd Class Elizabeth
Andrews. “We communicate
really well, we help each other
without having to ask and
when it comes to laying block
— which is more than half of
our project — they’ve been
doing it for years. It’s been a
really great experience.”
Enhancing shared capabili-
ties is a core benefit of the
CCAD’s primary construction
mission while in Tonga. The
nearly $700,000 project has
allowed the two forces to share
construction techniques and
strengthen friendships between
Tonga and the U.S.

Seabees from Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalion (NMCB) 5 volunteered
to play earthquake victims to support a
Jan. 14 training of local emergency ser-
vices held on the campus of California
State University, Channel Islands.
The Ventura County Sheriff ’s Office
of Emergency Services, in conjunction
with the county fire protection district,
emergency medical services, the univer-
sity and the American Red Cross hosted
a full-scale preparedness exercise named
“Operation Ready Ventura County
2014.” The scenario involved a cata-
strophic earthquake that caused sig-
nificant damage in Ventura County.
In the scenario, the Seabees played
victims spread across a three-story build-
ing complex on the university’s cam-
pus.
“After briefing us on the scenario, they
applied some realistic and detailed
makeup to identify our injuries and then
we went and waited to be rescued,” said
Construction Electrician 3rd Class Cait-
lin Brown.
The full day of events included being
rescued from the building, being evacu-
ated to the temporary hospital set up at
the gymnasium on campus and being
evacuated to the nearby airport.
“This was a great experience, and I’m
glad I came out to support it,” said
Utilitiesman 2nd Class Javier Rivera. “It
was great to see how [local emergency
services] operate.”
Rivera said that being from Hoboken,
N.J., and seeing the response from emer-
gency workers after Super Storm Sandy
in 2012, he understands the importance
of this training to prepare everyone for
natural disasters.
“It’s good to see how they operate and
also help them train to ensure they can
be more effective in an actual catastro-
phe,” he said.
Nearly 200 volunteers supported the
event, including other Seabees from Na-
val Construction Group (NCG) 1,
NMCB 4, Naval Facilities Engineering
Command Southwest and students from
the university.

evacuated for “wounds” suffered during an “earthquake.”
The call has gone out to Naval Base Ven-
tura County personnel interestedinserving
as judges for science fairs at local
schools.
That means students —andtheir parents
—should be preparing for science fairs as
well.
Science fairs are a great opportunity for
parents and children to work together on
a potentially fun project. In addition to the
benefits of family time, working together
on a project like this can foster a love of
science at an early age.
Although much of the primary years of
educationare spent onreading andwriting,
sparking an interest in science is critical to
students. Here are some reasons why:
Engaging curiosity
From a very early age, children want to
knowhowthings work. The ever important
question “Why?” is linked to a child’s in-
nate curiosity. As children growolder, they
often lose that inquisitiveness if it isn’t fos-
tered. Children are so often told what is
correct andincorrect. After some time, they
stop asking why and just accept what
they’ve been told. Science allows them to
continue to ask why.
The perfect time to get children inter-
ested in science is when they are naturally
curious. Science fuels their curiosity, which
gives them ideas, skills, resources and po-
tential future career choices.
Understanding everyday life
Many of our daily experiences involve
science. Cooking and baking, kicking and
throwing, running and jumping, growing
fruits and vegetables and understanding
how technologies work are examples of
science in our everyday lives. Understand-
ing science helps kids appreciate and relate
to the world around them.
Today, we rely on science much more
than we did 20 or 30 years ago. Technol-
ogy is science. Innovations in technology
have helped us to communicate with each
other using the Internet, satellites and cell
phones. These advances in technology help
us to be more efficient in our everyday lives,
providing us with the practical tools we
need to advance. When we think ahead to
the world our children will be facing as
adults, technology will play a large part in
their everyday lives, and it’s important that
they be prepared.
Solving problems
Allowing students to come up with their
own answer to the ever important “Why?”
allows them to be problem solvers. They
must use their own critical thinking skills
to find and research the answer. This is the
scientific method in its most natural and
simple form. Even if the answer is not al-
ways correct, allowing them to have the
opportunity to consider an answer allows
them to think critically and creatively.
Throughtime andexperience, they will find
the correct answer, but not if they are
never allowed to.

Life is full of crises.
For example, a crisis for my youngest
daughter, Mia, is when there is no Nutel-
la in the house.
A crisis is linked to a loss — or poten-
tial loss — of something that we value.
One author wrote, “A crisis occurs when
an internal reaction to an external hazard-
ous event takes place.”
Too often in the midst of a crisis, we
make ill-informed decisions that have se-
rious consequences.
When I served with Carrier Air Wing
11, one of our aviators had a serious cri-
sis in the air. It was a pitch black night
somewhere in the Pacific. The USS Nim-
itz (CVN-68) pitched and rolled due to
the rough sea conditions. While my friend
was trying to refuel his FA-18 Super Hor-
net, a part of his aircraft broke off and
was sucked into his portside engine. He
was unable to refuel. He then realized that
this would be a short mission.
Soon, lights were blinking on his con-
sole, and he quickly realized that there
was a serious problem. This object sig-
nificantly damaged his engine; the engine
soon flamed out. Thankfully, the Super
Hornet has two engines, but it would be
a very challenging recovery onboard
Nimitz.
The ship was located in a part of the
Pacific where there was no place to divert
the aircraft. He was low on fuel. It was
dark. While lights blinked brightly in his
jet, he knew he had to put his plane down
on a rolling and pitching runway. It would
be an understatement to say this was a
stressful situation. This was a real cri-
sis.
He thought about his wife and kids. He
had to stay calm. He had to stay focused.
And he did. He landed safely aboard
Nimitz. (I definitely included a heartfelt
“Thank you, Lord” during my evening
prayer that night.)
Later, I caught up with himin the ready
room. I asked him, “How did you hold it
together up there?”
His response was classic.
“Chaps, it was still flying.”
This response reminded me of a similar
response from another Navy pilot. When
Apollo 12 launched, the spacecraft was
hit several times by lightning. The entire
console began to glow with bright orange
and red trouble lights. Capt. Alan Bean
would later recall, “There was a tempta-
tion to do something. We asked this im-
portant question: ‘Is this thing still flying
in the right direction?’ The answer was,
‘Yes, it is still headed to the moon!’”
This was their perfect opportunity to
lose their heads, in my opinion. This was
a real “internal reaction to an externally
hazardous event.” But the crew of Apol-
lo 12 kept their cool in a highly stressful
situation. Methodically, they let the lights
glow and blink while they systematically
addressed the individual problems one by
one. Eventually, they watched the lights
stop blinking. The astronauts responded
to this crisis, they didn’t merely react.
There is a difference between reacting
and responding. The astronauts of Apol-
lo 12 and my friend were able to keep their
cool in extremely hazardous situations.
So the next time you’re facing a difficult
situation, take a few moments and care-
fully appraise the situation. Remember,
there will be a temptation to do something
about the situation: This is an immediate
reaction to the stressor. But remember to
respond thoughtfully to the situation.
So, when your console lights start blink-
ing red and green, ask yourself, “Is this
thing still flying?”
Keep calm. Keep your head. Think.
Consider your options and resources
available, and make a wise and informed
decision.
When crisis hits, ask yourself, ‘Is this thing still flying?’

“It’s the right thing to do.”
Lt. Molly Avery, a physical therapist at
the Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC)
at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
Port Hueneme didn’t break away from
dishing up plates of food as she explained
why she was spending a recent Thursday
morning volunteering at the Ventura
County Rescue Mission in Oxnard.
“I wanted to come,” she said. “This is
an organization I give to financially. I be-
lieve in what they do: faith-based reha-
bilitation.”
The Religious Ministries Team at the
base regularly organizes community rela-
tions volunteer efforts at the rescue mis-
sion. The project is especially popular at
Thanksgiving, when the base commanding
officer usually joins in to serve hundreds
of lunches to the neediest of Ventura
County’s residents.
But volunteers are needed all year long,
and on Jan. 23, they came from the clinic.
Avery was joined by several hospital corps-
men and a few retirees who frequently
worship at the Seabee Chapel and knew
about the project.
The morning began with the mission’s
volunteer coordinator, Suzanne West, de-
scribing the many services provided at the
center, including the hot lunches that have
been bringing in an average of 130 people
this month and the hot dinners, which
have been bringing in 180.
“Not everyone who comes is homeless,”
she explained. “Some are in the commu-
nity but don’t have a regular place to live
— they’re on someone’s couch — or they
live in a small studio that doesn’t have a
kitchen.”
The volunteers spent the morning pre-
paring the dining room and dicing toma-
toes for a salsa.
At 11 a.m., the corpsmen served plates
of food while Avery and others stayed
behind the counter, dishing up trays.
“We can’t thank you enough,” West
said.

William “Bill” Hall re-
cently retired from civil
service, ending his career
as an electronics techni-
cian at Naval Air Warfare
Center Weapons Division
(NAWCWD) Point Mugu
after 48 years.
Hall, accompanied by
his wife, Mary, was hon-
ored with a reception Jan.
15 at Naval Base Ventura
County, Point Mugu,
where he received a 45-
year length of service
award and a certificate of
retirement, both signed by
Secretary of the Navy Ray
Mabus.
After graduating from
Ventura College and Utah
State University with de-
grees in aerospace and
aeronautical technology,
Hall began his civilian ca-
reer on Dec. 27, 1966. He
initially declined an offer
to work on San Nicolas
Island but later accepted
a technician position from
Point Mugu’s Industrial
Relations office.
Hall’s first assignment
was to run the Plot Board
at Range Operations.
Within two weeks, he was
transferred to the Range
Communications (RC)
Department, where he
worked for the next 10
years. He later moved into
the engineering section
before moving on to tech-
nical operations, where his
responsibility directly af-
fected operational sup-
port.
Eventually, Hall ad-
vanced into a section level
management position,
then launched into the
branch level of manage-
ment. After a command
reorganization in the
1980s, Hall took a techni-
cian position in the engi-
neering group and re-
mained there for the next
25 years.
James Allen, branch
head of the RC Depart-
ment and Hall’s supervisor
of 10 years, expounded on
Hall’s 48-year career.
“Bill’s knowledge of mi-
crowave systems (for data
transmission) and fiber
optics systems were in-
valuable to the RCBranch,
since those systems are the
primary means of data
transport for inter- and
intrarange. He was always
quick to identify issues
and expedite repairs in-
volving our microwave
systems connecting Point
Mugu to Vandenberg Air
Force Base and Edwards
Air Force Base and China
Lake, respectively, as well
as our primary fiber optics
cables connecting Point
Mugu to San Nicolas Is-
land and Laguna Peak.”
According to Allen, Hall
developed a radio frequen-
cy data retransmission
link for the ARROW Car-
avan II and created speci-
fications for rectifier-
charging- battery plants
for the RC buildings. Hall
received awards for sig-
nificant achievements, in-
cluding the Award of
Merit for group leadership
in the Fiber Optic Com-
munications Underwater
System and the Award of
Merit for group leadership
of Navy Ranges Micro-
wave Systems.
Hall was recognized as
the Employee of the Quar-
ter in 2007 and partici-
pated in several high-vis-
ibility exercises and
multi-agency tests.
“Everything in commu-
nications evolves quickly,”
Hall said. “The science
and technology changes
all the time. It’s a chal-
lenge that I think I suc-
cessfully met, and I feel
that my efforts made a
positive contribution to
the range.”
Hall said he enjoyed an
active and rewarding ca-
reer. “There was no end to
the different challenges
and projects I was involved
in at Point Mugu,” he said,
“but the one word I can
use to describe my new
retired occupation is ‘deli-
cious.’”
Hall plans to spend time
restoring a 1952 MG TD
roadster and a pair of
1966 Ford Mustangs that
he and his wife own.

Communications building, Bill Hall explains what it was like
working with the microwave systems for data transmission
and fiber optics systems that are the primary means of
data transport for inter- and intrarange operations.

is at NBVC Point Mugu temporarily while the runways at China Lake are undergoing repairs. VX-9 is expected to depart Feb. 7.
HORNETS’ NEST

With temperatures exceeding 80 degrees
and a Santa Ana wind blowing, cold
weather wasn’t an issue during the Frost-
bite 5K at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Point Mugu Thursday, Jan. 16.
The first lunchtime run of the year put
on by Morale, Welfare and Recreation
drew13 runners to the PRTcourse behind
the Mugu Gym.
Paul Van Zuyle, an information technol-
ogy specialist with the Naval Facilities
Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare
Center, finished first with a time of 19
minutes, 17 seconds.
And this was after he’d ridden his bike
to the course from NBVC Port Hueneme
— an eight-mile trip.
“It was all uphill,” he said. “But I can
look forward to going back!”
So would he have liked the run better
had it lived up to its name?
“Not frostbite cold,” he said, “but I
would have preferred it in the 50s. That’s
ideal.”
Lori Koivisto was the first woman to
finish, ending up with a time of 27 min-
utes, 26 seconds. Her husband, Senior
Chief Aviation Electronics Technician
Luis Batrez of Carrier Airborne Early
Warning Squadron (VAW) 113 ran too,
finishing fourth with a time of 23 minutes,
36 seconds.
The next lunchtime run is the Sweet-
heart 5K, set for 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb.
13, at the BeeHive Gym, NBVCPort Hue-
neme.

The Navy-Marine Corps Relief So-
ciety (NMCRS) at Naval Base Ven-
tura County has been chosen as one
of 10 NMCRS offices worldwide to
pilot a new Budget for Baby pro-
gram.
The class has been redesigned to give
more information on how to prepare
financially when military households
are expecting a new bundle of joy.
The updated program includes a
choice in free gifts, which each family
receives for attending the class. A
choice of a $50 gift card is now avail-
able for class participants.
The standard layette option that in-
cludes onesies, bibs and bedding is still
available as well.
Each family, regardless of their
choice of gift, will also receive a hand-
crafted blanket and other goodies for
attending the class.
The first class to experience the
choice in gift was Jan. 14. The next
class will be offered from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Feb. 11. To register for the class call
805-982-4409, or send an email to
www.ventura@nmcrs.org.

There is an official drought in
California, which means it is time to
conserve one of our most precious
resources: water. Check out these
tips to see how easy that can be:
• Take shorter showers and install
a low-flowshowerhead. Save 2.5 gal-
lons per minute.
• Install low-flow aerators on
kitchen and bathroom faucets. Save
one-half to 2 gallons per minute.
• Fix leaky toilets. Save 30 to 50
gallons per day per toilet. One flush
uses 1.6 gallons.
• Wash only full loads of clothes.
Save 15 to 50 gallons per load.
• Turn off water while shaving or
brushing your teeth. Save 2 gallons
per minute.
• Make sure the dishwasher is
fully loaded. Save 4 to 6 gallons per
load.

vice Center can be done online or
over the phone.”
Cotsis said TRICARE enroll-
ment makes up the majority of
issues dealt with at the service
center. Billing, claims and referral
issues also top the list, followed
by region transfers and switching
from active duty to retirement
status.
Aviation Electrician’s Mate 2nd
Class Casey Beck of Carrier Air-
borne Early Warning Squadron
(VAW) 112 was in the service cen-
ter on a recent day, adding his
3-year-old son, Donte, to his
plan. His wife, Danielle, kept
Donte occupied in the waiting
area as Beck got the problem
solved.
Beck said he didn’t know what
he would have done without the
center; he’d tried to make the
change over the phone, to no
avail.
The Department of Defense
estimates that closure of the TSCs
will result in savings of approxi-
mately $250 million over five
years. Officials stressedthe change
does not affect TRICARE ben-
efits or healthcare delivery.
Overseas TRICARE service
centers are not being closed.
According to a Defense De-
partment news release, TRI-
CAREgets about 38,000 hits per
day on its website. Officials have
run tests to ensure the website
and call center can handle the
expected increase in volume, the
release states.
Beneficiaries can get more in-
formation about the changes and
sign up for email updates at www.
tricare.mil/TSC.
Local beneficiaries can get
more information about the
changes and their benefits by call-

Galen Marks has been named civilian
engineer of the year for the Naval Facili-
ties Engineering and Expeditionary War-
fare Center (NAVFAC EXWC).
Marks was selected for his work as team
lead overseeing the Hardened Installation
Protection for Persistent Operations (HIP-
PO) Joint Capability Technology Demon-
stration (JCTD) project.
“Galen and his team designed and in-
corporated newtechnologies into a kit for
the repair, restoration and recovery of fuel
and water for the HIPPO project,” said
Capt. Mark. K. Edelson, commanding
officer of NAVFAC EXWC. “This has
significant impact to Sailors, Marines and
troops deployed in combat zones, and the
award recognizes Galen for his dedication
and exceptional work in support of the
fleet and the warfighter.”
The JCTD developed a scalable, resil-
ient-structured solution to ensure continu-
ity of operations in the face of major
man-made and natural disruptions, and
it incorporates innovative technologies to
separate and reuse fuel contaminated with
aqueous firefighting foam.
The kit also offers new capabilities, in-
cluding bypass, inline and valve repair, fuel
recovery and storage. A revised modular
system allows faster access to tools and
vital parts, along with expeditious trans-
port by unmodified H-60 helicopters.
These technologies will enable warfight-
ers to resume battle within six hours after
an attack, instead of the days and weeks
under previous systems and capabilities.
Marks also performed a failure investi-
gation in a 950 kWwind turbine generator
at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, quickly iden-
tifying the root cause and developing an
economically feasible repair solution for
$45,000. He supervised restoration of key
generator drive end bearings, bringing the
turbine online much sooner than more
expensive alternate plans costing $1 mil-
lion.
Marks led a survey team in the produc-
tion and distribution of a key compressed
air systemat Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, result-

annually.
He also developed a Business Case
Analysis (BCA) examining six alternatives,
and that research has shown that an ad-
ditional $1.1 million in energy savings will
be realized by implementation of a com-
bination of BCA alternatives.
“This is truly a great honor for me per-
sonally, but it would not be possible with-
out the hard work, resourcefulness and
contribution of my team members,” said
Marks. “I humbly accept this award in
their behalf.”

Bike ride to Santa Monica will raise funds for memorial
the mid-1980s as a memorial to
Vietnamveterans. Over the years,
The Highground expanded to
include memorials to veterans of
World War I, World War II and
Korea and to veterans who are
women. It is also the site of the
national Native American Viet
Nam Memorial.
Located in a hilly area of near-
central and very rural Wisconsin,
The Highground has four miles
of hiking trails and a learning
center where visitors can study
the deeds of the nation’s veterans
in armed conflict.
Kokosz stumbled upon it in the
late 1990s when he was visiting
family in his home state. He was
immediately taken with its calm-
ing, healing atmosphere.
“Anybody who’s got a heart
…,” and he chokes up, thinking
about the many veterans he has
seen visiting the site and the con-
nection he feels.
“This place made me realize I
was part of the brotherhood of
the military,” he says. “All of us
served for the ideals of what
America stands for. And we were
all part of a war.”
Today he is on the planning
committee and takes part in fund-
raising activities.
Every summer, The High-
ground puts on a series of fund-
raising bicycle rides. Kokosz rode
in one last summer, then decided
to start up a West Coast version.
The big difference: The High-
ground’s is in August and Koko-
sz’s will be in February —“some-
thing that just isn’t possible in
Wisconsin this time of year,” he
says with a grin.
Kokosz originally planned to
do the ride alone, but after talk-
ing with friends from a local vet-
erans group, he garnered some
interest. He doesn’t know how
many will meet himat 8 a.m. Sat-
urday, Feb. 15, at Missile Park for
the ride to the Santa Monica Pier
— a ride that he figures will take
about six hours. He’s hoping
some riders will come out from
Wisconsin.
“But I’m keeping my expecta-
tions low,” he says.
Kokosz served in the Navy
from 1988 to 2009. He deployed
twice on active duty and once
with the Reserves.
During his second active-duty
deployment, in 1991, his ship sup-
ported deliveries of food and
other supplies to Northern Tur-
key for Kurdish refugees. During
his deployment with the Reserves
in 2005 and 2006, he served as an
administrative officer with the
30th Naval Construction Regi-
ment in Falloujah.
He likes the bootprint because
to him, it symbolizes an impres-
sion — what the United States
left behind, and what people
think here at home. And it also
provides an opportunity for fam-
ilies who lost loved ones to con-
template the meaning of their
sacrifice — and to heal.
His interpretation?
“The good that we do,”he says,
“that’s my impression.”
For more information on the
Persian Gulf Tribute, see www.
thehighground.org. To take part
in the ride, contact Kokosz at
630-217-4296 or email him at

command chaplain at the base.
“We have just moved the services
to a different part of the base and
consolidated our operations.”
He likened the move to the de-
commissioning of a battalion:
Staffing and operations are being
changed to increase effectiveness
and efficiency.
“We’re a reflection of what’s
going on in Big Navy up and
down the coast,” he said.
The impetus for this closure is
declining attendance. Han said
that since he came on board three
years ago, the ratio of weekly us-
age at the two chapels has been 8
to 1: eight people at the Seabee
Chapel for every person at the
Chapel of Faith.
“Overall, the numbers have
been on a decline at Mugu,”Han
said.
A recent weekday Mass at the
Chapel of Faith brought in four
people.
Staffing has also been reduced
in the past year.
“In 2013, we lost a Protestant
Sunday School director as well
as a Roman Catholic musician,”
Han said.
The chaplain said he realizes a
change like this can be difficult.
“You have families who have
worshipped at a particular chapel
for years, and it’s always hard to
give up something that you’ve
been a part of for a long time,”
he said. “But in this case, we re-
ally aren’t losing anything. We’re
just shifting everything to an-
other part of the base.”
Currently, the Chapel of Faith
holds Catholic Mass at 9 a.m.
Sundays and 11:30 a.m. Thurs-
days and Episcopal services at 11
a.m. Sundays. The Seabee Chapel
holds Protestant worship ser-
vices at 9 a.m. Sundays, Catholic
Mass at 11:15 a.m. Sundays and
11:30 a.m. Wednesdays, plus
choir rehearsals, men’s and wom-
en’s Bible studies, a soup fellow-
ship study and Catholic Religious
Education classes.
Han noted that Capt. Larry
Vasquez, the commanding officer
of the base, issued a “use it or
lose it” warning for the Chapel
of Faith last year in his “Ask the
Captain” column in The Light-
house.
“Even after that, our weekly
numbers still didn’t go up sig-
nificantly,” Han said. “The slow
decline continued.”
Han said that on a personal
note, he’ll miss the Chapel of
Faith.
“Architecturally, it’s beautiful,”
he said. “It has the classic high
steeple and that beautiful stained
glass window.”
That window, measuring 37.5
by 7 feet, is one of 15 in the build-
ing. Called “The Lord of All
Space” — it depicts Christ with
one foot on the sea, one on land
and his head in the far reaches of
space — the window was dedi-
cated Sunday, Jan. 8, 1967, the
culmination of six years of plan-
ning and 18 months of work by
Judson Studios of Pasadena. The
same studios did the stained glass
works inthe Congressional Prayer
Room at the U.S. Capitol, the
rotunda skylight at the Natural
History Museum in Los Angeles
and the Palace Court dome at
Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The chapel itself, originally
called The Chapel of Faith for
the Space Age, was dedicated
May 13, 1961, by then-Secretary
of the Navy John B. Connally Jr.,
who would go on to become gov-
ernor of Texas and survive a gun-
shot wound that occurred during
the assassination of John F. Ken-
nedy in 1963.
The 1961 dedication ceremony
also featured an organ recital by
Lyle Knight, the concert organist
for the Baldwin Organ Co., who
was there to demonstrate the
powers of the chapel’s electronic
organ, according to a newspaper
report at the time.
Base records show that in cal-
endar year 1964, 513 services
were conducted in the chapel. At-
tendance that year was 36,569,
and there were 37 baptisms, 30
weddings and five funerals.
more than $58,000.
“You will get your refund through this
programjust as fast as you would through
any commercial tax preparers — if not
faster —and we will usually save you more
than $100 in preparation fees,” explained
Sal Gonzales, the legal assistance clerk at
the Region Legal Service Office, Detach-
ment Ventura, who has coordinated the
tax center on base since 2002. “Why pay
for a service that is offered to you here at
no charge or a minimal charge?”
Taxpayers can prepare their returns on
a first-come, first-served basis. Last year,
1,100 federal and state tax returns were
prepared at the center, yielding more than
$1.2 million in refunds.
To use the center, taxpayers will be re-
quired to have an email address.
“For those taxpayers who do not have
an email address, I would suggest you ask
a family member or a friend if you could
use their email address,” Gonzales said.
The tax center is open from 11 a.m. to
4 p.m. Monday through Friday in class-
room102 of Building 103. The center will
be closed Friday, Feb. 14, and Monday,
Feb. 17.
Taxpayers will need to bring the follow-
ing documents with them:
• Last year’s tax return.
• All W-2 forms for the taxpayer and
spouse (if applicable)
• 1099 interest statements.
• Information on daycare providers, in-
cluding name, address, Social Security
number and amount paid to provider.
• Names, Social Security numbers and
dates of birth for all dependents.
• Bank routing and account information
for direct deposit of the refund.
• All other pertinent tax documents re-
ceived for the 2013 tax year.
If the return is complex — including
returns involving homeowners, rentals, day
trading, capital gains and other issues
— there will be a limited number of ap-
pointments available on a case-by-case
basis with an experienced volunteer. This
service is not guaranteed, however, since
this program is designed to assist people
with fairly simple returns.
Gonzales said the self-service program
does not require both husband and wife
to be present since there is no signing of
documents.
In addition, he said, if the return comes
back rejected after it was prepared at the
center, “we can assist you in correcting the
issue.
“Unfortunately, if you complete your
return with any other program. we cannot
assist you in fixing your return because
we were not properly trained with the pro-
gram you used.”
Anyone with questions can stop by the
tax center during open hours or call the
Region Legal Service Office at (805) 982-
4548. This also is the number to call to
make a tax appointment.

An octopus with the phrase, “Lend a
hand — or 8!” won the first-ever Color
Fest chalk-drawing contest held Satur-
day, Jan. 25, on the sidewalk in front of
the Fleet & Family Support Center
(FFSC) at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme.
Builder 2nd Class Roxanne Findlay, a
Reservist who’s taking a class in con-
struction planning and estimating, drew
the octopus for the Naval Construction
Training Center, earning the command
this year’s trophy.
More than 300 people attended, with
commands and families filling in 50 con-
crete squares as part of the FFSC’s effort
to draw attention to the clinical counsel-
ing services it offers.
“I hope this is the beginning of a reg-
ular event,” said Construction Electrician
1st Class Isaac Bara of Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 4,
whose wife and children illustrated a
concrete square with handprints to un-
derscore the importance of individuality.
“This is very family-oriented, very infor-
mative. I’m seeing a lot of friends
here.”
The event didn’t start until 10 a.m., but
by 9 a.m., artists were already lined up,
ready to draw.
Commands had found talented artists
among their ranks, with Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion (NMCB) 4 and
the Air Force 344th Training Squadron,
Detachment 1, giving Findlay and the
NCTC a run for their money.
For NMCB 4, Senior Chief Construc-
tion Electrician Ariel Ricasata and Build-
er 3rd Class Brittany Littlejohn drew a
two-part illustration, one featuring the
battalion’s Family Readiness Group and
the other showing gears in a brain and
the words, “Help is always available.”
“All our gears have to be in synch to
get through our daily lives,” explained
Ricasata, who used ridges of chalk dust
in the gears to give them a three-dimen-
sional effect. “But if one isn’t in synch,
help is always available.”
Farther down the walkway, an Air
Force crew led by Airmen Basic Nicholas
Wunsch and Carly Reuter worked on two
squares — one showing the Air Force
emblem with the words “What is life
without risk” and the other symbolizing
their day-to-day work at the schoolhouse:
a fire truck and a fist holding a
wrench.
Nearby, the family of Tech Sgt. Thom-
as Kessler drew Hershey’s Kisses in a
square under the words, “Everyone needs
a kiss!”
“It’s true,” explained 11-year-old Dom-
inique Kessler. “Especially during de-
ployments.”
Navy Counselor 1st Class Stanita Bur-
ton of the Navy Operational Support
Center, Ventura County, had picked sev-
eral squares around a planter in front of
the FFSC. She needed the room: She
brought her three children and a neph-
ew.
Her 13-year-old son, DeAshawn Clai-
born, drew an intricate snowflake after
he finished a startlingly accurate Sponge-
Bob SquarePants. Burton said they boy
has always been artistic.
“I’m really glad his art class starts
Monday,” she added. “He’s using a lot
of paper at home.”
Senior Chief Aviation Electronics
Technician Ethan Clark of the Fleet
Readiness Center Southwest, Detach-
ment Point Mugu, brought his wife,
Cassy, and their three children.
“It’s a great way to spend time with
family,” Clark said.
The commissary and Navy Exchange
also fielded artists, and a 12-year-old
from E.O. Green Junior High School in
Oxnard came with his father and Susan
Dever, a military family life counselor.
Henry Hottendorf drew an elaborate
hornet, the logo for his school.
“He’s been drawing since he was 4
years old,” his father said.
A mother and daughter were spending
quality time together a few squares down
as Navy retiree Erika Wolfe and her 10-
year-old, Kaylee, worked on two squares.
Wolfe had drawn an intricate archeo-
logical dig — complete with skeleton,
shovel and field guide — while Kaylee
worked on characters from “Despicable
Me.”
“Art is for something to happen,” Kay-
lee explained. “There’s no mistakes in
art.”
Sadly, there’s no permanence either, at
least, not in chalk art. It rained the day
after Color Fest, and while most of the
artwork was still there Monday, the slow
erosion of the flowers, rocket ships and
dinosaurs, even the Denver Broncos logo,
had begun.

standing on certain spots after the music ended won a prize. The spots were named after different issues for
which the Fleet & Family Support Center can provide help, including “Stress Management,” “Grief Support” and
“Transitioning.”

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
Have you ever felt alone —really alone?
It’s not a pleasurable experience by any
means. It may be a familiar feeling, but
not a comfortable or necessary one. There
is help for the asking.
In the New York Times bestseller by
psychoanalyst Judith Viorst, titled “Nec-
essary Losses,” there is a vivid clue as to
what sometimes transpires in the counsel-
ing room. She writes pointedly about the
loves, illusions, dependencies and impos-
sible expectations that all of us have to
give up in order to grow.
We do not often think about loss as a
dynamic reality of life. Oh, yes, we may
lose our car keys, or an opportunity or
maybe an occasional name out of our
memory bank, but real loss as a key com-
ponent of life? That is not in our cultural
verbal lexicon. Mostly, we define our re-
lationships and successes in terms of per-
sonal gain and value added equations. But
think for a moment: We lose our youth,
our innocence. We lose friends and rela-
tives. We lose our looks, our hair, relation-
ships, marriages, dreams, hopes and then
the inevitable: our life.
Losing is the price we pay for living.
This is not to paint a bleak picture of
life’s journey but a fuller, more accurate
one. It is difficult at best to face losses, let
alone understand them. To be sure, it is
an endeavor best not experienced alone.
Life is too big to do it alone.
By genetic design, we are social crea-
tures. Our emotional makeup, our physi-
ology, our psychological being are all
geared to relationship and social structure.
We must communicate and interact to
function.
Healthy relationships and reality checks
are essential to good emotional, physical
and mental health. This is often the vital
role counseling and personal reflection can
provide to the ailing heart and struggling
mind. We seek clarity, and sometimes it is
a shared perspective other than our own
that becomes key to making good deci-
sions for our life. Counseling can be help-
ful here.
We are fortunate to have this kind of
resource on our base. Individual, family
and couples counseling are just three of
many supportive resources available at the
Fleet & Family Support Center at Naval
Base Ventura County. In addition, classes
are offered about issues related to parent-
ing, communication, financial planning
and stress management, not to mention
new parent support.
Life is short. Ask for directions.

Family Support Center, Naval Base Ventura
County. He and other counselors can be

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
You could call it a scavenger hunt in
reverse.
While the point of most scavenger
hunts is to collect stuff, one is being
planned for Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty (NBVC) where winners will probably
lose stuff — namely, pounds.
Participants in next month’s scaven-
ger hunt sponsored by the Bee-Fit Well-
ness Center at NBVC Port Hueneme
will collect points for visiting different
facilities on base —aquatic centers and
gyms — and for attending different
classes, including yoga, spinning,
strength classes and Zumba. They’ll
also get points for undergoing a pre-
and post-fitness assessment, wearing a
pedometer for two weeks and keeping
a food diary.
“By February, people’s enthusiasmin
their newyear’s resolutions have petered
out,” explained Ramona Pagel, man-
ager of the Bee-Fit. “This will get them
going again, and it will introduce people
to different forms of exercise and to
facilities they may not have visited be-
fore.”
Basic requirements are going to a gym
three days a week and swimming in a
pool twice during the month.
The event begins Monday, Feb. 10,
when participants can stop by the Bee-
Fit to pick up a “passport” and un-
dergo the pre-fitness assessment. Each
time they attend a class, work out at a
gym or swim in a pool on base, they’ll
get the passport stamped.
“I’mnot a big Zumba person, so this
would be a good incentive for me to
start,” Pagel said.
The scavenger hunt continues for six
weeks, and on Friday, March 21, those
who have made all the required visits
will receive a prize.
For more information on the scaven-
ger hunt, call the Bee-Fit at 982-4726.
