Coast Guard Academy Superintendent tours USS Toledo
By Lt. Jennifer Cragg
Commander, Submarine Squadron
Two Public Affairs
GROTON, Conn. -
Commander, Submarine
Group (CSG) 2 hosted the
Superintendent of the U.S.
Coast Guard Academy
aboard the Los Angeles-
class attack submarine
USS Toledo (SSN 769),
July 27.
“It’s an honor to pro-
vide an opportunity for
the superintendent to visit
one of our boats,” said
Rear Admiral Michael
McLaughlin, CSG 2.
During the tour, Rear
Adm. Sandra L. Stosz also
met with Commander
Sam Geiger, who assumed
command of Toledo July
15. Geiger relieved Cmdr.
Douglas Reckamp.
Stosz became the 40th
superintendent in June.
She is responsible for the
efficient, safe, and economi-
cal accomplishment of the
Academy’s training mission.
“I was very impressed
during my visit on board
USS Toledo. The pride
and professionalism of the
crew reflects the Navy’s
core values of honor, cour-
age and commitment,”
said Stosz. “The Coast
Guard Academy and the
Navy Submarine Base are
separated by the Thames
River, but we come togeth-
er on that body of water to
serve the United States of
America.”
Lieutenant Jon Stockton,
assistant operations offi-
cer, provided a tour of
Toledo highlighting the
crew and the boat’s capa-
bilities.
“It’s great to have other
services, such as the U.S.
Coast Guard, visit our boat
to see what we are capable
of and how we operate,”
said Stockton.
Stosz graduated from
the Coast Guard Academy
in 1982 with a Bachelor
of Science degree in
Government. She was
awarded a Master of
Business Administration
degree from Northwestern
University’s J. L. Kellogg
Graduate School of
Management in 1994.
The Coast Guard
Academy was established
in 1876. The oldest service
academy is West Point
which was established in
1802.
The submarine, com-
missioned Feb. 24, 1995,
is the second U.S. war-
ship named for the peo-
ple of the northwestern
Ohio city. The first was
a Baltimore-class heavy
cruiser. Toledo has a com-
plement of 139 officers
and enlisted crew.

From Navy Personnel
Command Public Affairs
MILLINGTON, Tenn. -
Navy Personnel Command
will compile the list of eli-
gible Sailors for the fiscal
year 2012 performance-
based senior enlisted con-
tinuation board, Aug. 31.
Accordi ng t o
NAVADMIN 194/11,
active, Full Time Support
and Reserve E-7 to E-9
Sailors with 19 years of
service and three years
time in rate as of Sept. 1
will be considered by the
board, which will convene
Dec. 5.
“Performance is the
key,” said Navy Personnel
Command (NPC) Force
Master Chief (AW/SW/
NAC) Jon Port. “The Navy
requires our senior enlisted
to lead Sailors and enforce
our standards. One of the
major ways they do this
is by living our standards
and conducting themselves
professionally and ethical-
ly. Those master chiefs,
senior chiefs and chiefs out
there who achieve great
success through team and
personal performance set
the example for others to
follow.”
The board will focus on
performance within the
last five years or since
advancement to current
grade, whichever is later.
Among the specific per-
formance indicators the
board will consider are:
* Documented miscon-
duct involving either UCMJ
(non-judicial punishment)
or civilian offenses;
* Moral or professional
dereliction such as relief
for cause or detachment
for cause;
* Continuity gaps in
evaluation/fitness reports
greater than 90 days;
* Evaluation/fitness
reports with marks sug-
gesting substandard or
marginal performance;
* Any documented cir-
cumstance related to per-
formance which results in
a Sailor’s inability to per-
form in his or her rating
or duties.
“The board will look
at these factors and the
entire record,” Port said.
“They will use their judg-
ment when determining
who to select for continua-
tion. Bottom line: we want

Groton SUBVETS announce August events
By Lt. Jennifer Cragg
Commander, Submarine Group Two Public
Affairs Office
GROTON, Conn. - While many
graduating seniors from the local
area high schools are still enjoy-
ing summer vacations, one New
London High School senior is enter-
ing the Naval Academy Preparatory
School (NAPS) on a special day: his
18th birthday, July 26.
When Jorge Rodriguez graduated
from New London High School, in
New London, Conn., in late June he
was waiting for word if he would
class up with NAPS in the fall of
2011 in Newport, R.I. On July 19,
he received the good news, his
acceptance.
“I am completely excited, and
can’t wait to go,” said Rodriguez
who graduated 10th out of more
than 200 classmates with an overall
GPA of 3.9. His GPA for his senior
year was 4.0.
Rodriguez’s goal after success-
fully completing NAPS is to enter
the U.S. Naval Academy in the fall
of 2012. Superintendent of New
London Public School Dr. Nicholas
Fischer reflected on his pupil’s
accomplishment.
“He is the first in 10 years to be
accepted into NAPS,” said Fischer,
who thinks highly of the future
NAPS selectee. Fischer was instru-
mental in assisting Rodriguez as
he submitted his application for
admission.
His acceptance is quite unique.
He is the first Hispanic from New
London High School to be accepted
into NAPS and, eventually, the U.S.
Naval Academy.
“I think he is an outstanding
young man. Based on his [Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps]
experience, he is very committed to
a naval career,” said Fischer.
Rear Admiral Michael McLaughlin,
Commander, Submarine Group Two
and Captain Frank Lowery, his chief
of staff, met with Rodriguez in April
2011 to discuss his strong desire to
serve the country and his goals.
Lowery, who was assigned as
Jorge’s Blue and Gold Officer by the
Naval Academy Dean of Admissions,
is very familiar with his qualifica-
tions and credentials.
“He is a hard working and
extremely bright young man whose
future is unlimited,” said Lowery.
“Submarine Group Two wishes him
the best success for years to come.”
Rodriguez, who exudes a calm
humbleness, said he was amazed
that he was a source of inspiration
for others.
“One of my friends came up to
me and said I was their inspiration,
which really caught me by surprise,”
recalled Rodriguez. “I thought I was
just another guy doing what he has
to do, putting all of my hard work
into my acceptance.”
Rodriguez doesn’t shy away from
hard work. He completed nearly
100 hours of volunteer service
while attending New London High
School. The school requires all of
its students to complete a minimum
of 40 hours.
His hard work has definitely paid
off. When asked about his future
career plans after NAPS and the
U.S. Naval Academy and follow-on
service, Rodriguez shared his more
lofty goals for the White House.
“Someday after the Navy, I hope to
become the president of the United
States,” said Rodriguez. “I see that a
lot of people look to the president to
solve their problems, and the presi-
dent has a huge responsibility to help
solve them. I would like to be able to
do that one day. I don’t know how I
will do that, but I will find a way.”

18th birthday, entrance into NAPS

August news from FRA
Thursday, August 4, 2011 • THE DOLPHIN • 3
By Michele Schultz,
Naval Submarine Research
Laboratory
Groton, Conn. -
When Joe Russotti
first stepped foot onto
Naval Submarine Base
New London (SUBASE)
in 1967 as a research
scientist for the Naval
Submarine Medical
Research Laboratory
(NSMRL) it was on
a temporary work
assignment. Now 44
years, two patents,
seven letter reports, 22
presentations and 43
technical reports later
he’s taking some time
off for himself.
For more than
four decades Joseph
Russotti has worked
as a research scientist
here at NSMRL and on
July 28, his friends and
co-workers celebrated
his retirement with a
surprise luncheon in
his honor.
“Let me say first that
our Submarine Medical
Research Center is the
greatest facility to con-
duct science to protect
our warfighters,” said
Russotti during his
luncheon.
“We have the unique
ability to walk down
to the waterfront and
ask the operators,
the people who use
the hardware, exactly
what they encounter
in daily use. It’s our
job to document with
hard data, those issues
we see as mission criti-
cal.
“Research cost s
money. Far-sighted
research that foresees
potenti al probl ems
takes federal support.
We have had that sup-
port and recognition,”
said Russotti.
Beyond t hes e
r esear ch i ssues,
Russotti has played
an important role in
helping the Submarine
Force. He was instru-
mental in developing
the sound-canceling
head phones used on
the VIRGINIA Class
Submarines. As an
audio measurement
expert, his last project
was to help improve
the sonar audio to
allow servicemen to
hear more realistic
sound. With one pat-
ent under his belt and
one pending, mission
accomplished.
Russotti’s first patent
came in October 2006
for a Noise Rejecting
Electronic Stethoscope
and Pi ezoel ect ri c
Pol ymer Cont act
Mi cr ophone and
Ergonomic Features to
Emulate Traditional
Stethoscopes. It was
designed for use in
intense noise, military
environments.
Russotti, currently has
another Patent Pending:
Passive Ping Ranging.
NSMRL’s Technical
Director, Jerry Lamb,
asked Russotti what his
proudest accomplish-
ment has been during
his 44 year reign.
“Walking down the
waterfront, my greatest
personal satisfaction is
having developed with
Bose, the first extended
fidelity noise cancelling
headset that we put on
all Virginia Class sub-
marines,” he said.
“Besides being loved
by fleet operators, once
Bose heard the audible
results, they added our
custom Navy mods into
their commercial Series
X Aviation headset”
added Russotti.
During the lun-
cheon, Russotti received
gifts from members of
NSMRL. One gift in par-
ticular was a red brick
that once was part of the
structure of B141 (which
is currently undergoing
major renovations) the
same building that he
spent the majority of his
44 years in.
The brick had an
engraved emblem sim-
ply saying “JOE thanks
for keeping me stand-
ing.”

GROTON, Conn. - Joe Russotti reads the inscription on the brick given to him at his retirement lun-
cheon July 28. Russotti, a research scientist at the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory
here, received the brick at the luncheon celebrating 44 years of service at NSMRL last week.

He added that he was
also famous for being the
first catcher to wear a glove
in a baseball game. As a
token to generations past,
McGunnigle is pleased with
the support the team has
shown to his boat and crew.
“I hail from a baseball
family and as a token
of respect to my lineage
it gives me great honor
to have members of my
crew present here today at
Fenway to fly the state flag
of New Hampshire that was
flown over the submarine
USS New Hampshire in the
Arctic,” said McGunnigle.
USS New Hampshire
was the first Virginia-class
submarine to participate
in an Ice Exercise 2011.
Seawolf-class submarine
USS Connecticut (SSN 22)
also participated in the exer-
cises in the Arctic Ocean.
Submarines have conducted
under-ice operations in the
Arctic regions in support of
inter-fleet transit, training,
cooperative allied engage-
ments and operations for
more than 50 years.

SUBASE Public Affairs
NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. - More than 10
members of the Naval Submarine Base New London
(SUBASE) Dolphins 4 H Club presented their proj-
ects to judges and attendees at the New London 4H
Exposition held at the North Stonington Fairgrounds,
July 22 through 24.
And although the SUBASE members didn’t have
a whole lot to offer in the traditional 4H sense of”
Heffers and Hens” they made their mark with a dem-
onstration of their robotic building prowess.
The Dolphins competed in a number of categories
including pet obedience, showmanship, construction
of a scarecrow and for the first time at the South
Eastern Connecticut Exposition a demonstration of
their robot building skills and programming.
The SUBASE Dolphins’ scarecrow, which was in
the form of a dolphin with compact discs suspended
from the model to scare unwanted pests away won
2nd place in the competition.
But it was in the robotic competition/exhibit the
SUBASE 4H members really got a chance to shine.
The SUBASE members who meet weekly to build
and their robots and friendships demonstrated their
creations in a number of events that had their cre-
ations navigating a “minefield “ paper cups, tug-o-war
and races.
The winners of the robotic competitions were
Matthew Zabatta (9) and Matthew Strange (9) who
won first prize, Hayden McLaen (12) and Jadelyn
Perry (9) in 2nd place and Austin Mathis (12) 3rd
Place.
“I had a lot of fun “bull fighting” our robots but
my favorite part of the club is being able to build
the robots and programming them to do what you
want them to do,” said Matthew Zabatta. Zabatta
and Strange built their robot that Zabatta called
“Ripjaw”.
“I had a lot of fun” said Matthew Strange who has
been participating in the 4H program on base for
about a year.
Mathis said his favorite part other than the robotic
combat was just making friends.

Thursday, August 4, 2011 • THE DOLPHIN • 5
An amazing three-acre butterfly has been created in
a sunflower field at historic Lyman Orchards, one of
Connecticut’s most visited family destinations. But the
appearance of this colossal winged creature is no cause
for alarm. It’s all done for good fun, and also for a very
good cause.
Lyman’s 5th Annual Sunflower Maze opens in
Middlefield, Conn., July 30 and will continue daily
through Aug. 28. Don’t miss this popular and challeng-
ing summer activity. Everyone in the family will enjoy
a walk along picturesque and deceptively disorienting
pathways, shaded by thousands of towering blossoms.
Like Lyman’s previous Sunflower and Corn Mazes,
this year’s Butterfly Sunflower Maze is the work of
noted professional agricultural maze designer artist
Brett Herbst, founder of The Maize, LLC. Recognized
in the Guiness Book of World Records, Herbst has
designed and built close to 2,000 agri-mazes since
starting his maze-building business in 1996. It is now
the largest business of its kind in the world.
“Getting lost is all about finding fun,” Herbst
explains. “It warms my heart to see families and friends
enter into our mazes and encounter an unfamiliar yet
inviting place, an all natural yet unique, environment
... then come out after 30 minutes or an hour, up-lifted
by the challenge, and always in a happy mood.”
In coming up with this year’s maze design, Lyman
Orchards has relied again upon the impressive and irre-
pressible imaginations of many of the young patients
at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.
The children were asked to suggest design themes for
the maze, and then the favorite themes were voted on
in an online contest. The butterfly, elegant symbol of
happiness and beauty was chosen as the winner.
For every Sunflower Maze ticket sold, Lyman sup-
ports the fight against childhood cancer by contrib-
uting $1 to the pediatric cancer unit at Connecticut
Children’s Medical Center. To date, Lyman Orchards
has donated more than $25,000.
This year, a special highlight has been added to the
Sunflower Maze opening weekend events, July 30 and
31. If weather and wind conditions allow, the Remax
hot air balloon will be at the Sunflower Maze both days
from 9 to 11 a.m., offering tethered balloon rides with
spectacular aerial views of the butterfly maze, Lyman’s
thousand plus acres of orchard fields, and an awesome
sweeping view of the scenic Connecticut River Valley.
Balloon rides will cost $5 each, and all proceeds will
be donated to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center,
dedicated to improving the physical and emotional
health of children effected with cancer through family-
centered care, research, education and advocacy.
For more information, call Lyman Orchards at (860)
349.1793 or visit www.lymanorchards.com. For more
information about Connecticut Children’s Medical
Center, visit www.connecticutchildrens.org.

only academic medical center dedicated exclusively to
the care of children, with doctors and nurses who care

vices and programs from birth to age 18, Connecticut

from around the world as well as
songs from Les’s award winning
CDs.
Les Julian has entertained
thousands and thousands of chil-
dren and adults in hundreds of
schools, colleges, libraries, muse-
ums, senior centers, park and
recreation shows, theaters, hos-
pitals, hospices and arts festivals.
His performances showcase his
award-winning original songs and
illuminate universal themes of
human life while celebrating the
diversity of the world through a
variety of exciting musical styles.
On nylon string and electric gui-
tars as well as mandolin and

voice and rubbery storyteller’s
face, Mr. Julian is a singer of
stories that one critic said, “...
delight and transport.”
