ries may file a claim

It has been the great-
est privilege and highest
honor to serve as your
Chief of Naval Operations.
Your talent, dedication,
and initiative as United
States Sailors during this
time of war and change
have made our Navy the
most capable and ready
naval force the world has
ever known. I could not be
more proud of what you
do and how exceptionally
well you do it.
Over the last four years
at sea, in the air, on the
ground, and in cyber-
space you have made a
difference. More than 40
percent of our ships and
more than 50,000 Sailors
are deployed today,
including 12,000 Sailors
on the ground in Central
Command and more than
8,000 individual augmen-
tees around the world.
You know this firsthand
because you experience
the steady pace of opera-
tions our Navy has sus-
tained over the last decade
from the front lines in Iraq
and Afghanistan to the sea
lines of communication
in the Pacific and Indian
Oceans. You are the real
capability of our Navy.
You are in every ocean
and on every continent.
You take the fight to those
who wish us harm. You
prevail against pirates, traf-
fickers, and terrorists. You
deliver vital humanitarian
assistance in the wake of
disasters on a moments
notice wherever needed.
You prevent conflict and
demonstrate U.S. commit-
ment to allies and partners
through your persistent,
credible forward presence
and varied maritime oper-
ations.
You epitomize flexibil-
ity and agility as our Navy
responds rapidly and inno-
vatively to emerging crises
and unexpected demands.
These achievements
have come with a price.
Every day, I am inspired
by the tremendous sacri-
fices you and your families
make for our Navy and for
our nation. Thank you for
serving. You are the fin-
est Sailors who have ever
sailed.
I am relieved today
by Admiral Jonathan
Greenert. He is an experi-
enced leader and operator
whose sound judgment
and devotion to our Navy
will keep us ready, capa-
ble, and dominant well
into the future. Our Navy
is in excellent hands.
Ellen and I wish each of
you and your families fair
winds and following seas.
I am proud to have served
with you.

Roughead, U.S. Navy.

SUBASE earns second consecutive
Installation Excellence Award
By Navy New London Public
Affairs
GROTON, Conn. For
an unprecedented sec-
ond consecutive year,
Naval Submarine Base
New London (SUBASE)
was recently selected as
the winner of the annu-
al Commander, Navy
Region Mid-Atlantics
(CNRMA) Award for
Installation Excellence.
The award is based on
outstanding mission
efforts and outcomes
during the fiscal year.
SUBASE could not
be more honored by
thi s extraordi nary
achievement, said base
Commanding Officer,
Capt. Marc W. Denno.
To have Team New
Londons dedication and
commitment to the Fleet,
Fighters, and Families
we serve recognized by
senior command, in this
way, for a second con-
secutive year, is hum-
bling.
To earn this 2011
honor, SUBASE bested
CNRMAs more than 20
other installations and
activities from Maine to
North Carolina, and will
now represent the Mid-
Atlantic Region, as win-
ners from all 12 of the
Navys regions compete
for the Navys top honor
in the Commander in
Chiefs Annual Award for
Installation Excellence.
Established in 1984,
the award program seeks
to spotlight the outstand-
ing efforts of personnel
in the operation and
maintenance of U.S. mil-
itary installations world-
wide.
The award recogniz-
es one installation from
each Service and the
Defense Logistics Agency
(DLA) that has made
the best use of available
resources to accomplish
its assigned mission and
has focused on innova-
tive management actions
to increase the produc-
tivity of its work force,
as well as enhance the
quality of life for person-
nel.
SUBASEs mission is
two-fold. The base pro-
vides the facilities, deliv-
ers the services, and
creates the environment
to deploy combat-ready
submarines and crews,
and, to train a corps of
professional submari-
ners.
For Denno, the
bases repeat recogni-
tion reflects how far the
installation has come.
In 2005, SUBASE
had been recommended
for base realignment
and closure (BRAC) but
survived the cut, said
Denno. So SUBASE has
known for some time that
todays world is a com-
petitive resource envi-
ronment. Certainly this
award signals that Navy
Region Mid-Atlantic sees
the sustained difference
weve been making with
the resources weve been
allotted over the last two
years.
Under the Navys
Shore Vision 2035 plan
the services vision
of shore basing looking
toward 2035, SUBASE
has committed much of
its resources to infra-
structure improvement.

any given day, SUBASE

The U.S. has long

Australian Navy and
this bond is especially
strong among our sub-
marine forces, said
Rear Admiral Rick
Breckenridge.
As we look ahead
to the maritime chal-
lenges we will face in
the Pacific, regional sta-
bility will hinge on our
combined capabilities,
said Breckenridge. Any
efforts to improve logis-
tic support and interop-
erability between our
forces will improve our
posture, making this

PCU Mississippi Sailor selected
as Service Person of the Month
From Commander, Submarine
Group 2 Public Affairs
GROTON, Conn. - A
Sailor assigned to Pre-
Commissioning Unit
Mississippi (SSN 782) was
selected as Service Person
of the Month for September
by the Southeastern
Connecticut Chamber of
Commerce and other orga-
nizations for his support
and efforts in the local com-
munity, Sept. 22.
Machinists Mate 1st Class
(SS/SW) James Pearson,
of Owensboro, Kentucky,
serves as the volunteer coor-
dinator for Mississippi and
has been aboard the boat
since July 1010. He was
honored for his work at a
luncheon at the Groton Inn
& Suites.
My overall plan for
Mississippi all along has
been to inform the local
community about the U.S.
Navy, and in particular, PCU
Mississippi, said Pearson.
I think more Sailors should
volunteer in their local com-
munities to really gain an
appreciation for the com-
munity.
The Ledyard Rotary
Club, which serves the
Ledyard and southeastern
Connecticut area, presented
the Service Person of the
Month award to Pearson.
This program provides com-
munity recognition of out-
standing active-duty enlisted
personnel stationed in the
Groton-New London area.
The program is coordi-
nated by the Southeastern
Connecticut Chamber of
Commerce in coopera-
tion with local active-duty
military organizations and
actively supported by local
service clubs and civic orga-
nizations.
These organizations
honor and celebrate the
active-duty service mem-
bers accomplishments at
monthly events sponsored
by the clubs and organiza-
tions.
Since mid-2010, Sailors
aboard Mississippi have
assisted with countless
projects from cooking for
veterans in the local area;
educating students about
the military at John B.
Stanton Elementary School;
conducting repairs at the
New London Homeless
Hospitality Center to pack-
ing boxes for deployed
Connecticut service mem-
bers.
Since becoming the com-
munity service coordinator
in July 2010, he has recruit-
ed 55 crew members of PCU
Mississippi to participate
in the community service
program, said Cmdr. John
McGrath, commanding
officer of PCU Mississippi.
These dedicated volunteers
have donated over 90 hours
of cumulative community
service per month.
Pearson said their volun-
teer program was created to
emphasize their interest in
Connecticut, and their desire
to offer assistance wherever
necessary. The program has
impacted more than 10,000
people.
PCU Mississippi is
extremely proud of Petty
Officer Pearson and because
of his hard work, dedication,
and volunteer spirit. As a
result of his efforts, the com-
mand enjoys a strong and
vibrant relationship with
the citizens, government,
and civic organizations of
New London County, said
McGrath.
During the luncheon,
Pearson cited the advice
of football legend Vince
Lombardi.
The price of success is
hard work, dedication to the
job at hand, and the deter-
mination that whether we
win or lose, we have applied
the best of ourselves to the
task at hand, said Pearson.

Retroactive Stop Loss
Special Pay.
Officials extended
a previous deadline to
Oct. 21 to allow more

to apply.
The nation has ral-

remarkable outreach
efforts, some people
may still not yet have
applied. If you think you
are eligible, and have

SUBASE BATTLE OF THE COMMANDS 2011
Photo courtesy MWR
GROTON, Conn. - Sailors participate in the tug-a-war contest during the 2011 Battle of the Commands at Naval Submarine Base New
Londons (SUBASE) North Lake, Sept. 7.
By MC1(AW) Peter D. Blair
GROTON, Conn. -
More than 400 Sailors
turned out to battle
for top honors as com-
mands across Naval
Submarine Base New
London (SUBASE)
squared off in the
annual Battle of the
Commands, Sept. 7, in
a variety of sporting
events, testing not only
each Sailors ability to
perform as individuals,
but as a unified team.
In the end, Deep Sink
from Naval Submarine
Support Facility (NSSF)
would take the overall
title as top command
at SUBASE.
Sailors from across
SUBASE competed in
basketball shootouts,
a bowling tournament,
swimming races at the
base pool, and numer-
ous relay races at the
bases ball fields before
finishing the day at
SUBASEs North Lake.
At North Lake,
Sailors played vol-
leyball, while others
competed in the canoe
races across the lake.
Three-man teams had
to row their way across
the lake and then come
back. Many teams
ended up swimming to
shore as their canoes
had tipped over dur-
ing the race. The final
event of the day was
the team tug-of-war in
which each team tried
to pull their opposing
team across the line.
Battle of the
Commands was spon-
sored by SUBASEs
Morale, Welfare and
Recreation (MWR)
department, who not
only supervised each
event, but also handed
out team and individ-
ual trphies to the win-
ning teams, sponsored
the annual sporting
event.

Pianist Gleb Ivanov will perform as the
Eastern Connecticut Symphony begins its
65th at the Garde Arts Center, Oct. 22.
On Oct. 15, from 10 a.m. to noon, local author
Stephen Jackson will speak about his book The
Men: American Enlisted Submariners in WWII,
at the Waterford Public Library, located at 49 Rope
Ferry Road in Waterford.
Jackson is a Navy veteran who spent eight years
in the submarine force, has a Masters degree in
American and European history, and is currently
pursuing a Ph.D. Four local WWII submariners
will also attend and discuss their experiences as
detailed in the book. Using oral histories, letters
and other primary sources, they describe the physi-
cally demanding, emotionally challenging, and
one of the most statistically deadly assignments, in
the U.S. Navy. They were on the front lines of the
undersea war in the Pacific and their excitement,
fear and humble heroism is captured in their own
words. A question and answer period will follow
the formal presentation. Copies of the book will be
available for purchase and signing.
For more information, call the Waterford Public
Library at (860) 444-5805.
Author, Navy vet, to
speak at local library
A history of the U.S. Coast Guard Barque Eagle
Photo by John Narewski
Tido Holtkamp, author of A Perfect Lady: A Pictorial History of the Barque Eagle, presents a lecture on
the history of the Eagle, at the Groton Public Library, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. Holtkamps book was published by
Flat Hammock Press of Mystic and is now in its second updated edition.
Holtkamp has had a lifelong love affair with the Eagle, having served on the ship as a young German
Naval cadet during 1944 when she was a training ship for the German Navy and was known as the Horst
Wessel. The U.S. Coast Guard took the ship as a war prize. Commissioned the Eagle in 1946, the ship has
trained Coast Guard cadets ever since. Holtkamp came to the United States as an immigrant in 1949 and
later settled in Connecticut. While crossing the Gold Star Bridge over the Thames River in the late 1950s, he
spotted his old ship. Since then, Holtkamp has sailed on board Eagle many times and has become friends
with many captains and crew and is an avid admirer of the Coast Guard.
Holtkamp uses models, slides and tapes to tell his story and the history of the Eagle. Holtkamp will sign
copies of his book, A Perfect Lady, after the lecture.
This program is free and open to the public. No registration is required. For more information, contact
the Library at (860) 441-6750.

From Chief of Naval
Personnel Public Affairs
WASHINGTON - To
improve senior enlist-
ed manning aboard
submarines, the Navy
announced adjustments
to the Submarine Duty
Incentive Pay (SUBPAY)
in NAVADMIN 274/11,
Sept. 21.
The incentive pay
will encourage senior
enlisted submariners
to return to sea in a
department chief petty
officer, senior enlisted
advisor, or chief of the
boat (command mas-
ter chief) billet, said
Rear Adm. Tony Kurta,
director, military per-
sonnel plans and pol-
icy. These SUBPAY
adjustments, combined
with a recent increase
in required obligated
service for Sailors tak-
ing SUBPAY on shore
duty, will improve sub-
marine senior enlist-
ed at-sea manning by
encouraging them to
return to sea duty in
these critical billets.
The pay adjust-
ment targets senior
enlisted submariners
to remain in the Navy
past 18 years of ser-
vice. Beginning Oct.
1, SUBPAY for an E-8
over 18 years of service
will go from $415 per
month to $550 and for
an E-9 over 18 years
of service, pay will go
from $425 to $600 per
month.
While there has been
high retention in most
ratings there are still
some ratings that need
incentives in order to
meet mission needs,
according to Kurta. The
Navy is specifically tar-
geting only the most
critical senior subma-
rine supervisors with
this change. These
supervisors are vital to
continued safe opera-
tions in the Submarine
Force, Kurta said.

dollars invested in on-
going military construc-
tion, said Denno. And
perhaps one of the most
innovative and impactful
project successes during
2011 was the completion
of our new Submarine
Learning Center (SLC)
headquarters.
The state of the art, $7
million dollar, SLC head-
quarters building is one
of the most energy effi-
cient and environmen-
tally friendly facilities
on SUBASE. Heated and
cooled by geothermal
energy and constructed
with products with sig-
nificant recycled content,
the headquarters is rough-
ly 30 to 40 percent more
energy efficient than the
energy code standard for
commercial buildings in
the United States.
In addition to such
infrastructure and inno-
vation in 2011, SUBASE
and its more than 22,000
active duty and reserve
military members, fam-
ily members, and civilian
employees also strove to
remain a good neighbor
and a vibrant part of the
Southeastern Connecticut
community, according to
Denno.
One of my goals when I
took command of SUBASE
was to grow the produc-
tive relationship between
Team New London
and our Southeastern
Connecticut community,
and Im proud to say that
that effort has really taken
root, said Denno.
As a result of this strong
community involve-
ment, SUBASE not only
received the Regions 2010
Community Service of the
Year Award for Project
Good Neighbor but also
was recognized as the
Navys runner-up, service-
wide, for 2010 award in
this Flagship Community
Service category.
Moreover, SUBASE
joined the U.S. Coast Guard
Academy and Southeastern
Connecticuts Military
Superintendents Liaison
Committee (MSLC)
in receiving the 2011
Pete Taylor Exemplary
Partnership Award. The
national honor from the
Military Child Education
Coalition highlights the
military services and
MSLCs exemplary efforts
on behalf of military chil-
dren, and applauds the
outstanding partnership
that exists between the
military installations and
the local school districts.
In reflecting on the
achievements and acco-
lades the base has received
over the last year, Denno
easily pinpoints to under-
lying source.
The real foundation
to SUBASEs continued
success - whether on our
waterfront, in our class-
rooms, or out in our
community is our peo-
ple, said Denno. Naval
Submarine Base New
London is our nations first
and finest submarine base
because of the dedicated
and committed team that I
serve with every day.
---------
Naval Submarine Base
(SUBASE) New London
is the Navys first sub-
marine base and the
Home of the Submarine
Force.
SUBASE occupies more
than 687 acres along the
eastern terrace of the
Thames River, in Groton
and Ledyard, Conn.
Fifteen attack subma-
rines call SUBASE home.
The base also supports
more than 70 tenant
commands including
Commander, Submarine
Group Two, as well as
the Center of Excellence
for Submarine Force
training, comprising
the Submarine Learning
Center and Naval
Submarine School.

8 THE DOLPHIN Thursday, September 29, 2011
By Lt. Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg
Commander, Submarine Group 2 Public Affairs
GROTON, Conn. - The commander of Submarine
Group 2 hosted the dean of Yale College, her deputy,
and various other engineering and applied science
deans to reconnect the university with the local mili-
tary in Connecticut, Sept. 19.
It is inherent in our nature as submariners to attract
the best and brightest men and women to work in our
submarine forces, and through the NROTC [Naval
Reserve Officer Training Corps] scholarship opportu-
nity at Yale they will be afforded an Ivy League educa-
tion second to none, said Rear Admiral Breckenridge,
Commander, Submarine Group (CSG) 2.
Yale and the military have had close ties prior to the
founding of our nation. David Bushnell was credited
for creating the first submarine ever used in combat
while studying at Yale University in 1775. The First
Yale Unit, the nation and Navys first naval air reserve
unit, is credited as beginning at Yale in 1915. During
World War II, more than 20,000 Soldiers, Sailors and
Marines were trained on campus at Yale.
We want to continue to build upon the strong mili-
tary ties between Yale University, Submarine Group 2
and Naval Submarine Base (SUBASE) New London for
years to come, said Breckenridge.
Breckenridge added that the culture of learning
and the educational opportunities offered at Yale
will complement our submarine culture of academic
excellence. Showcasing the excellence in training at
New London Submarine Base, the dean and her staff
visited a number of trainers to include the Submarine
Escape Trainer, the Virtual Submarine Watchstanding
Trainer, Submarine Piloting and Navigation Trainer,
as well as the Weapons Handling Lab and Torpedo
Tube Trainer.
Following the Submarine School trainer portion
of the visit, Commander John McGunnigle, USS
New Hampshire (SSN 778) commanding officer,
and Lieutenant Commander Jeffrey Anderson, New
Hampshire executive officer, hosted the Yale visitors
aboard their boat.
Byers, an NROTC graduate, reflected on his com-
missioning path and the experiences that shaped his
naval career.
The NROTC program allowed me to get a firsthand
insight of the submarine, surface and air communi-
ties, which allowed me an opportunity to make an
educated decision on which career path that best
suited me, said Anderson.
Captain Marc Denno, Naval Submarine Base New
London commanding officer, hosted the Yale visitors
for lunch at the bases Cross Hall Galley.
Its always a pleasure to have leaders in higher
education visit the base and gain insight not only into
our submarine force but also into Naval Submarine
School and our Center of Excellence for Submarine
Force training, said Denno. SUBASE New London
is much like a college campus itself, with some 1,200
Sailors on any given day as our students, a galley
as our cafeteria, barracks as our dormitories, the
Liberty Center as our student union, and the most
high-tech trainers and advanced submarines as our
classrooms.
In May, Yale President Richard Levin and Secretary
of the Navy Ray Mabus signed an agreement that
established the NROTCs presence on the New Haven
campus for the first time since the early 1970s.
We were delighted to announce the return of Naval
ROTC to Yale back in May. As President Levin noted
at the time, this is a new chapter in a proud tradition
of military service at Yale, one which will provide
opportunities for Yale College students, said Mary
Miller, Yale College dean.
In 2012, Yales NROTC program will become a part
of the NROTC consortium with the College of the Holy
Cross in Massachusetts.
We are equally delighted to be part of the NROTC
consortium with the College of the Holy Cross and cre-
ate opportunities for civic-minded young people from
across southern New England to realize their goals of
education and service, said Miller.

Lieutenant Adam
Hilliard, U.S. Navy
Supply Corps, is current-
ly fulfilling that niche in
his present assignment
by participating in a two-
year Personnel Exchange
Program in Perth,
Australia. In his present
assignment, he supports
the director, Supply
Support and Logistics,
Submarine Branch as the
performance and sustain-
ability officer.
Prior to his current bil-
let, Hilliard was assigned
to Groton-based USS
Hartford (SSN 768), a
Los Angeles-class fast
attack submarine.
As a U.S. Navy Supply
Corps officer, I have the
distinct honor and privi-
lege to serve overseas
through the Personnel
Exchange Program
with the RAN. This has
allowed me to use the
valuable skills learned
onboard a Los Angeles-
class submarine to pro-
vide operational supply
chain experience and
assistance to the RAN
Submarine Supply Chain
and Support system,
said Hilliard.
Commander Darrell
Stratton, a 26-year vet-
eran with the Royal
Aust ral i an Navy s
Submarine Force prin-
cipal staff officer sup-
port, and Cmdr. Dean
Powell, a 22-year veter-
an, who currently serves
as the director, Supply
Support and Logistics,
Submarines Branch both
accompanied Hilliard to
meet with a number of
U.S. supply counterparts
during their learning
exchange opportunity.
This trip was initi-
ated by conversations
held between then-U.S.
Navy Chief of Supply
Corps, Rear Adm. Mike
Lyden and then-Royal
Australian Navy Head of
Supply community, Rear
Adm. Andrew Robinson.
This trip has allowed the
Royal Australian Navy to
develop material logis-
tics, functional knowl-
edge and support for
mutual mission systems
used by the U.S. Navy
and the Royal Australian
Navy, said Powell.
Powell added that this
visit fostered a healthy
exchange of ideas and
proven productive for
both navies. The visit
allowed the RAN to
benchmark against best
contemporary practices
currently being employed
within the U.S. Navy
submarine supply chain.
Like Hilliard, Stratton
and Powell have both
performed exchange
tours in the United States
to further enhance their
knowledge of supply
logistics, supply support
services and acquisi-
tion.
Australian supply offi-
cers also visited USS New
Hampshire (SSN 778)
and toured the Navy
Supply Corps School in
Newport, R.I.
