Carter takes office as 25th Defense Secretary


By Cheryl Pellerin
DoD News, Defense
Media Activity

WASHINGTON - Ash
Carter became the 25th
secretary of defense Feb.
17 after having served previously as deputy defense
secretary, defense acquisition chief and assistant
secretary for global strategic affairs.
When President Barack
Obama nominated Carter
for the position - calling
Carter an innovator and
a reformer who knows
the Defense Department
inside and out - the president said, On Day One,
hes going to hit the
ground running.

At his Feb. 4 Senate


Armed Services Committee
confirmation
hearing,
Carter described the work
that lies ahead for him and
the department.
I think we are in a
time, he told the Senate
panel, where the number and severity of risks
is something Ive not seen
before in my life.

Risks to the nation

For Carter, the job will


include dealing with coalition responsibilities in
Afghanistan and Iraq, and
what he described as the
malignant and savage terrorism emanating from
turmoil in the Middle East
and North Africa.
Hell also take on what
has become a reversion to

what hes called old-style


security thinking in parts
of Europe, long-standing
tensions and rapid changes in Asia, a continuing
imperative to counter the
spread of weapons of mass
destruction, and dangers
in new domains such as
cyber.
Carters own expertise,
experience, travels and
interests in defense and
national security have prepared him precisely to deal
with these challenges and
more.
As former U.S. Sen. Joe
Lieberman said in introductory remarks during
Carters hearing, It would
really be hard to find
someone to serve as secretary of defense who com-

bines as much practical


Pentagon experience with
so deep a background in
national security policy as
Ash Carter.

the scourge of sexual assault
in our ranks.
And after 13 years of war,
we have worked to restore
our military readiness and
ease the burdens on our people and their families.
Through it all, many of
you, and your families,
coped with shutdowns and
furloughs; weathered hiring and pay freezes; and
endured long hours and longer deployments. You did
so because we each took an
oath to defend our nation,
our fellow citizens, and our
way of life. And you have
lived up to your word.
But as you know well, the
world is still too dangerous,
and threats too numerous. I
know you will remain vigilant, continuing your important work under the leadership of Ash Carter.
A special note to our men
and women in uniform: of
all the many opportunities
my life has given me, I am
most proud of having once
been a soldier. The lessons
from my time in uniform
about trust, responsibility,

duty, judgment, and loyalty


- I have carried these with
me throughout my life. As
your secretary of defense, I
have seen those same traits
in each of you.
Whether you serve in uniform or as a civilian, you are
the reason why our military
is the finest in the world
and the most admired and
most trusted institution in
America. Nothing has clarified my thinking, nothing
has renewed my hope, and
nothing has made me prouder than getting to know,
work, and serve with so
many of you who have put
the nations interest above
your own.
If I had any parting guidance, it would be the same
reminder that my drill sergeant, Sgt. 1st Class William
Joyce, gave to me after I
finished basic training in
1967: People depend on
you. Theyll always depend
on you.
That was true for me then,
and it is true for all of you
today. People depend on you
- America depends on you
- to live up to your oath, to

conduct yourselves in keeping with our highest standards, and to perform as the

Thank you for your
unflagging service and your
commitment to this country.

Power couple of chamber music


to perform at Connecticut College
NEW LONDON, Conn.
- onStage at Connecticut
College presents David
Finckel and Wu Han
in concert, Feb. 20 at
7:30 p.m. in Evans Hall,
Cummings Arts Center,
on the Colleges New
London campus.
The
husband-andwife team of cellist
Finckel and pianist Han
ranks among the most
esteemed and influential
artists in classical music
today - so much so that
they are also the artistic
directors of the Chamber
Music Society of Lincoln
Center and have been
called
Americas
power couple of chamber music by The
Wall Street Journal.
Together, they perform
with a thrilling virtuosi-

ty and artistic versatility


that have brought them
universal acclaim from
audiences at the worlds
most prestigious venues and concert series.
Audiences in southeastern Connecticut will be
similarly delighted by
their performance of a
program titled Russian
Reflections,
which
will feature sonatas by
Prokofiev, Shostakovich
and Rachmaninoff.
I really wanted to
bring back some very
strong, straight-ahead
chamber
music,
said Rob Richter, the
Colleges director of
arts programming. And
David Finckel and Wu
Han are, in the chamber
music world, real powerhouses. In fact, many

have credited them with


revitalizing the genre
through their masterful directorship of the
Chamber Music Society.
In addition to being
performers and artistic
directors (they also oversee two other chamber
music festivals, one in
California and the other in
Korea), Finckel and Han
are educators committed
to nurturing the careers
of young artists through
a variety of educational
outreach programs they
conduct around the world.
They will teach a master class for Connecticut
College music students
while on campus.
The two are also entrepreneurs,
launching
classical musics first
musician-led, Internet-

based recording company, ArtistLed, in 1997.


Theyre so multifaceted, building their
careers beyond performing, and my music
department colleagues
and I are very pleased
that they will be sharing their knowledge
and enthusiasm with
our students during
the master class, said
Richter. And then, of
course, those students
- and the community
- will have the great
pleasure of seeing them
perform that evening.
Tickets for the show
are $22, $20 for seniors

Healthy Heart Fair ...

Continued from page 1

Our goal is to help veterans, service members


and families live better
and healthier lives, said
Body Works Fitness Center
Manager Rebecca Brewer.
We want to highlight
different, healthier foods
that people may not have
thought of. Weve had a lot
of people ask about foods
like kale, so we prepared
a sample of kale chili; and,
we encourage everyone to
take home the recipes and

other printed information


so that they too can learn
how to incorporate kale
and other healthy food into
their diet.
MWR Lead Fitness
Specialist Angi Webb discussed the hidden pitfall
of salad eating and demonstrated just how easy
home-made dressings are
to make.
Sailors trying to lead a
healthy lifestyle tend to turn
towards salads because

they think they are healthy,


and they usually are, said
Webb. That is until they
put the salad dressing on
them which are usually
really high in fat. The average McDonalds salad has
more calories and fat than
a Big Mac because of all
of the dressing and cheese.
Making your own salad
dressing allows you to give
your salad flavor and avoid
all of that unwanted fat.

GROTON, Conn. - A Naval Security Forces boat from Naval Submarine Base New London (SUBASE) stands ready on the Thames River, prior to a Small Boat Attack drill conducted as part of the Navy-wide
Solid Curtain and Citadel Shield Exercises, Feb. 10. Regularly-scheduled exercises, Solid Curtain and Citadel Shield helped SUBASE enhance the readiness of base Naval Security Forces and their ability to
respond to threats to the base and its homeported submarines.

SUBASE completes Navy-wide Security Force Exercises

GROTON, Conn.
Naval Submarine Base
New London (SUBASE)
completed an extensive
array of security drills
around the base during
the Navy-wide annual Solid Curtain and
Citadel Shield Exercises
conducted Feb. 2-13.
Regularly-scheduled
exercises, Solid Curtain
and
Citadel
Shield
helped SUBASE enhance
the readiness of base
Naval Security Forces
and their ability to
respond to threats to the
base and its homeported
submarines.
The training was not
tailored as a response
to a specific threat, but
instead developed to
present a comprehensive range of risks and
dangers.
Its designed really
to test our force protection capabilities and to
hone our skills against
challenging and dynamic threats, said Capt.
Carl Lahti, SUBASE
commanding
officer.
Ultimately what well
do is well look for anything that we need to
retrain on or change our
procedures or tactics or
something and modify
that to continuously get
better.
From simulating an
active-shooter incident
at the bases Crane
Maintenance
Facility
to simulating a small
boat attack at the bases
Marina, the various
drills provided realistic
training opportunities
for personnel.
We try to simulate scenarios that are
as real-life as possible, said David Cruz,
SUBASE training offi-

cer. We want to ensure


our personnel and our
responders are fully
prepared to handle anything that may happen.
Additionally, as part
of the exercise, SUBASE
increased
its
Force
Protection
Condition
(FPCON).
We
completed
a
number of entry point
control (ECP) exercises and inspection drills,
simulating ECP penetration and fake IDs,
said Cruz. The purpose
throughout this was to
identify and exercise
FPCON. Overall, all
training events were
effective and the exercises were completed
satisfactorily as we were
able to identify lessons learned for future
events.
Cruz emphasized that
communication and collaboration were essential throughout the drills
and exercises.
Many
communication tools were used
to keep SUBASE personnel informed about
these exercise security
situations.
Computer
network alert systems
distributed messages to
office computers and
the giant voice system
was used to immediately
alert people base-wide.
[The giant voice system
is an outdoor intercom
loud enough to alert
anyone outside on base
of a potential threat.]
The exercises also
tested the bases ability to integrate support
and response from security, fire and emergency services, the Naval
Criminal Investigative
Service (NCIS), and simulated mutual aid.
The importance is to
make sure that we keep
our Sailors and their
families, the contractors

Maintenance Facility, Feb. 4. The Hot Wash allows drill participants and members of the base Training Team to highlight key lessons
learned and issues immediately after a drill. Ultimately what well do is well look for anything that we need to retrain on or change
our procedures or tactics or something and modify that to continuously get better, said SUBASE Commanding Officer Capt. Carl Lahti.

and civilians and our


key Navy equipment,
the installation, protected from a series of challenging and demanding
potential
real-world
threats, Lahti said.
Overall, the event was
an invaluable training
evolution.
There
is
always
something to learn,
said Cruz. This is the
reason we continue to
drill - to plan, prepare,
and evaluate all training
teams, watch standers,
and responses. We have
to ensure were better
than those trying to do
us harm.

Submarine Base New London
(SUBASE) Naval Branch
Health Clinic (NBHC), discusses living in Baltimore,
Md., in the 1960s as an
African American woman
during the clinics diversity
celebration marking African
American History Month, Feb.
13. Im extremely honored
to be asked by my daughter
to come and speak here at
SUBASE today, said Dixon.
My parents reared me in
an atmosphere of joy, knowledge and compassion. Even
though we lived in a segregated neighborhood, our family philosophy always emphasized that we could achieve
anything we put our minds to. As members of the Navy, you should applaud yourself for your efforts in race relations,
because from what Ive seen youve come further than any other branch in the military.

Healthy Heart Fair ...


Continued frompage 4

Webb
emphasized
that individuals could
almost always make
their own healthy salad
dressing from standard
items in their pantry
and refrigerator.
This one uses maple
syrup, red wine vinegar,
and olive oil, pointed
out Webb during her
demonstration.
Its
delicious, healthy, and
fun to make.
Michelle
Griffin,
assistant manager of
the SUBASE Swimming
Pool, contributed an
easy and healthy dish
to the fair as well.
We all pitched in and
made a couple of dishes to promote healthier
living, said Griffin. I
made egg cups. Theyre
like omelets, but you
bake them in the oven.
They are so easy to premake and then place in
the freezer for later.
Fair goers and fitness
center users like Internal
Communications
Electrician Second Class
(SS) Michael Stauer
from Regional Support
Group
(RSG)
were
drawn to the foods.
The food was great
and I got all of these
recipes, said Stauer. I
like junk food but it
leaves me feeling guilty.
The food at this event
is a different story. I
really recommend the
chewy chocolate chip
oatmeal breakfast cookies. I dont feel bad
about eating them since
they are good for you
which you wouldnt
think because they taste
good. Usually what is
good for you doesnt
taste good.
The Healthy Heart
Fair was also a great
incentive for those participating in MWRs
Healthy Base Initiative
(HBI) Biggest Loser
event.
I love to come here

because I always get


new recipes to try and
they are always different and unique, said
Biggest Loser contestant Rhonda Nielsen,
a contract specialist at
Fleet Logistics Center
on SUBASE. Its always
fun to try new, healthy
dishes, and Im earning points toward the
Biggest Loser challenge while I do it.
Of course, theres
more to maintaining
a healthy heart than
losing weight noted
Jennifer Back, NBHC
Groton registered dietitian who staffed the
Ask the Dietitian,
booth at the fair.
I encourage anyone struggling with
high blood pressure
or high cholesterol or
who desires a healthier
life style to take advantage of the free programs and information
available right here on
SUBASE, said Back.
Brewer estimates that
some 75 Body Works
Fitness patrons and visitors enjoyed the fair.
Were happy to continue making a difference in the health
and wellness of our
SUBASE community,
said Brewer. And if we
can do it in new, fun,
and informative ways
like the Healthy Heart
Fair, all the better.

Carter ...

Continued from page 1

At several stops, Carter


was honored as a champion for troops in moving the
Pentagon acquisition process
beyond bureaucracy and
into the life-saving business
with a range of tools produced in a timely way.

A champion for troops

These included mine-resistant, ambush-protected


vehicles; unmanned aerial systems; counter-roadside-bomb equipment; persistent surveillance by way
of the aerostat, or an immobile balloon-type structure
filled with a lifting gas what Carter called a poor
mans Predator unmanned
vehicle - and medical
advances produced during
the long wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
The
campaign
in
Afghanistan has been close
to my heart for all the time
that Ive been associated
with the Department of
Defense, he said during his

confirmation hearing.
I think success is possible there, but ... requires the
United States to continue
its campaign and finish the
job, he added, noting that
he supports the presidents
plan for Afghanistan but
will recommend changes if
he sees a need for them.

The Islamic State of


Iraq and the Levant

On the international
fight against ISIL, Carter
said that regional partners
in the fight will help the
United States make sure the
defeat inflicted on ISIL is
lasting, and that it keeps
ISIL from creating breeding
grounds for its malignant
and vicious kind of terrorism. U.S. involvement is
essential and necessary, he
added, but not sufficient by
itself for lasting victory.

The very newest


in technology

One tenet of the 2012


defense strategy was to pur-

sue the very newest in technology and operational art,


Carter said many times in
his role as deputy defense
secretary.
Investments in this area
target special operations
forces, capabilities in space
and in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance,
and cyberspace, he said.
In 2012, during a keynote
address to participants at
the annual RSA Conference
on cryptography and information security in San
Francisco, Carter said DoD is
deeply involved in and committed to cybersecurity and
the departments responsibility to defend the nation.
That explains, for us
- and in this I speak for
[the defense secretary and
the chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff] and other
department leadership - our
real sense of urgency about
cyber and our willingness,
indeed eagerness, to be a

leading part of, where appropriate, the march to cybersecurity that were all just
beginning.

Urgency about
cyberspace

On cyberspace, Carter
said during his confirmation hearing that the federal
government has a role in
protecting the country from
cyberattacks in the same
way it has a role in protecting the country from other
kinds of attacks.
I think [the government]
can do a lot more to exercise
that responsibility without
causing concerns over invasions of peoples privacy,
he added.
The government can
share information and
knowledge it has collected about threats to private
networks with those private parties, for example,
if proper legal safeguards
are provided, Carter said.
And these have less to do

with privacy than they do


with things such as antitrust
and other important legal
aspects, he added.
I think the government
can sponsor and conduct
[research and development]
that improves the tradecraft
in network defense for the
good of the country, he
said. So I think theres a lot
we can do, and were not
anywhere near where we
should be as a country.

21st-century
defense strategy

Carter often characterized as a strategic crossroads the departments


transition from wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan to a
renewed political and economic focus on the AsiaPacific region and the need
to absorb defense budget
reductions.
These two great historical currents are coming
together, Carter said in
2013, and its my view that

they can, if managed properly, reinforce one another.


During a November 2013
address on national security leadership in Annapolis,
Maryland, Carter detailed
for 250 U.S. Naval Academy
midshipmen the strategic
tasks facing the Defense
Department as the 21st century unfolds.
One of these was to maintain a technological edge
over U.S. adversaries, and
Carter -- who holds a doctorate in theoretical physics from Oxford University,
where he was a Rhodes
Scholar -- said maintaining
a technological edge over
competitors is the surest
way to deter conflict.

Maintaining a
technological edge

The nation, he added,


must continue to invest
in technologies that will
be essential to 21st-century defense, and the president and the department
have focused on protecting critical investments,
even in times of budget
austerity.
DoD is increasing
investments in the cyber
domain because of growing threats to national
security and critical infrastructure, Carter said. In
the space domain, the
department is rebalancing its portfolio to better
defend against threats,
degrade enemy space
capabilities and operate
in a contested environment.
The department also is
investing in intelligence,
surveillance and reconnaissance and unmanned
assets, he said, including platforms that launch
from land and sea, and
operate well above the
Earths surface and deep
under the sea.
I would say, Carter
said during his confirmation hearing, that
the world continues to
pose serious challenges to
international order, and
that the United States is
indispensable to the solution of those challenges.
