OKINAWA, Japan — Steel-
worker 1st Class Louis Salazar
has been named the Pacific Fleet’s
Sea Sailor of the Year and has
received a meritorious promotion
to chief select petty officer.
Salazar, a Seabee assigned to
U.S. Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 40, had the
prestigious honor bestowed upon
him last month during the rigor-
ous final selection process.
“My knees almost gave out!”
Salazar said, describing his reac-
tion. “It was such a sigh of relief,
and words can’t even describe
how I felt.”
Salazar was one of four top
Navy performers being consid-
ered for the award.
“The competition was tough,”
he said. “They were all great can-
didates. This selection could have
easily gone to any one of them.
“The board was rigorous and
full of tough questions designed
to stimulate the brain,”he added.
“I really had to keep up with cur-
rent events in and around the
Navy.”

ed more than 12 years ago when

Question: What happened to the paintball and archery
fields on Point Mugu? Are there plans to reopen them or
something similar like an offroad vehicle course?
Answer: As the weather has warmed up, we’ve gotten a
lot of questions about the old paintball course and the pos-
sibility of reopening it or expanding its use to other sports.
Let me start with the idea of establishing an offroad
course. Given the environmentally sensitive nature of our
Point Mugu facility, building and running an offroad course
is just not feasible. We’ve always gone out of our way to pro-
tect the natural resources with which we’ve been entrusted,
including the largest unencroached wetlands area in the
state, and offroading runs counter to that goal.
The paintball course is another matter. It first opened
in 2005 but never really took off; the business volume was
always quite low. We explored several options to increase
traffic at the site, including the possibility of contracting out
site management and opening the site to the public, but the
security concern of allowing public access was just too great.
Ultimately, the course was not used enough to justify the
expense of keeping it open, and the site fell into disarray as
patrons began bringing their own “obstacles” and “cover,”
which created significant safety concerns.
Over time, the site became a safety hazard and was es-
sentially being used as a disposal site. The archery course
suffered the same fate.
Morale, Welfare & Recreation staff completed a clean-
up of the site earlier this year, clearing safety hazards and
environmental concerns. We are not opposed to the idea of
having paintball and archery facilities, but we aren’t funded
to support a facility that is underused.
Given the apparent renewed interest in these activi-
ties, MWR is re-examining the right way to move forward,
but they’re going to need your help. We’ll be holding focus
groups, and we need you to step up, volunteer your time and
help us determine what the community wants. We need your
commitment to use and help keep up any facility we open.
This is our community. Let’s work together to make it the
best it can be. Let us know if you’re interested in participat-
ing by going to my online Commanding Officer’s Suggestion
Box at http://cnic.navy.mil/Ventura/ or search Facebook for
the NBVC MWR page and let us know there.
Please continue to submit your questions and suggestions
through one of our many feedback options. Follow us on

During the Monday, April 30, opening ceremony, first lady Michelle Obama greets athletes
competing in the annual Warrior Games in Colorado Springs. The Warrior Games are
hosted by the U.S. Olympic Committee for wounded members of the armed services.
First lady Michelle Obama and Army
Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were among
those who paid tribute to wounded war-
rior athletes at the opening of the 2012
Warrior Games in Colorado Springs Mon-
day, April 30.
Thirty-five of the 200 athletes are on
Team Navy/Coast Guard and have at-
tended several training camps at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC) in prepara-
tion for the six-day event.
Capt. David Sasek, chief staff officer
of NBVC, attended the opening ceremo-
nies.
“For me it was awesome to see the team
together and fired up for the competition,”
he said. “They are hungry and want to
win; I think they already have!”
In her opening remarks, Obama said
the games are exciting because the perse-
verance of wounded warriors “is going to
be on display for the entire world.”
“No matter how seriously you’re in-
jured, no matter what obstacles or set-
backs you face, you just keep moving
forward,”she said. “You just keep pushing
yourselves to succeed in ways that just
mystify and leave us all in awe.”
Warrior Games kick off in Colorado Springs
Dennis Biddick, deputy assistant sec-
retary of the Navy for Infrastructure
Strategy and Analysis, and Capt. Larry
Vasquez, commanding officer of Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC), will be

day, May 8.
The event will be held at the Ventura
County Office of Education conference
center, located at 5100 Adolfo Road in
Camarillo.
Biddick’s 9:40 a.m. speech is titled “The
U.S. Navy: Serving Troops and Veter-
ans.”
Immediately before his talk will be a
salute to Elton Gallegly of Simi Valley,
who is retiring from the U.S. House of
Representatives after 26 years.
Vasquez will speak at 12:30 p.m. on
“NBVC: Your Navy in Ventura Coun-
ty.”
The expo allows local business and
community members to connect with

How does a person overcome six years
of torture and violence without being
consumed by hatred?
Holocaust survivor Charles Pierce —or
prisoner B1719, as he was tattooed during
his imprisonment by the Nazis during
World War II — did it by surrounding
himself with love.
For Holocaust Remembrance Day, April
19, Pierce visited Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC) to share his story — and
his message — with members of the mil-
itary and the civilians and families who
support them.
‘This was murder and terror’
In 1939, Pierce was teenager looking to
start his life as an adult. His father, a suc-
cessful businessman, wasn’t overly con-
cerned when the Nazis first invaded Po-
land.
“My father was comfortable. No one
expected things to change so quickly or
so horribly,” Pierce said.
It took Germany eight days to occupy
Poland. It wasn’t long before Pierce’s
hometown of Kielce fell under Nazi influ-
ence. Soldiers marched prisoners down the
town’s main street, right past his father’s
shop.
Soon, the Nazis came for Pierce’s fam-
ily. Armed teenagers, members of the
Hitler Youth, ordered them out onto the
streets, stripping them of their material
possessions and handing the family busi-
ness over to a Polish Nazi. The family
moved into a newly established ghetto
where 20,000 people lived in a few square
blocks.
“They saw us as sub-human. Soldiers
used us for target practice,” Pierce ex-
plained.
Pierce would be transferred through
multiple ghettos, forced-labor camps and
death camps throughout Poland and Ger-
many.
In 1942, the ghetto Pierce occupied was
liquidated. The Nazis came in with ma-
chine guns, executing the sick and in-
firm.
“They ordered babies abandoned.
Mothers were shot if they refused,”Pierce
said.
Survivors of the evacuation were or-
dered onto tightly packed railcars for
transfer to Treblinka, in Poland, where
Pierce spent 14 months, surviving largely
on potato peels and bread, refusing to eat
the horsemeat soup prisoners were giv-
en.
“This was not just a war. This was mur-
der and terror,” Pierce said.
Years later, the world knows Treblinka
as an extermination camp. Pierce survived
its liquidation and was transferred to Aus-
chwitz-Birkenau.
“At Auschwitz I smelled the burning
bodies,” Pierce recalled. “They killed
20,000 gypsies the day before we arrived.
Everyone went to the crematory.”
International Red Cross members vis-
ited the camp during Pierce’s stay to check
on the welfare and treatment of the pris-
oners. The Nazis put on a show, cleaning
up prisoners, serving dinner and playing
music.
“They played music while the bodies
burned. How could they not smell it?”
Pierce said. “To this day I cannot listen to
those songs.”
Pierce survived Auschwitz and was
transferred to Kaufering, a subcamp of
Dachau, where he worked in lumber yards
and paper mills. His fellow prisoners
would scrounge for food in a nearby dump
to supplement their diet.
Pierce couldn’t bring himself to do it.
He was eventually transferred to the
main Dachau camp.
“We didn’t know it, but the war was be-
ing lost,” Pierce said.
The Nazis began slaughtering the re-
maining prisoners at Dachau as they
planned to abandon the camp. Pierce was
selected to help an officer haul his posses-
sions out of the camp. The three-day
march would nearly kill him, but in the
end it saved his life.
Members of the U.S. Army’s 20th Ar-
mored Division crossed Pierce’s path.
“I half crawled, half walked to the
tanks,” he said.
Pierce, by then in his 20s, weighed just
60 pounds.
Surrounded with love
Pierce spent months recovering, then
years searching for his family across Eu-
rope. His parents and two of his four
brothers died during the Holocaust.
Pierce came to the United States in
1949.
“I got down on my knees and kissed the
ground, I was so thankful,” he said.
Staying with family in NewYork, Pierce
worked during the day and went to school
at night, where he learned, among other
things, to speak English.
In December of 1953, he would learn
to love again.
“We met on a blind date,” explained
Libby Pierce, Charles’ wife of more than
57 years. “I thought he couldn’t be my
blind date, he was too good-looking.”
Less than three weeks later, on New
Year’s Eve, Charles proposed; they wed
the following June.
Charles and Libby would go on to lead
a relatively normal, happy life, raising a
family and just not talking about Charles’
experiences during the Holocaust.
“We sawthe tattoo, and as we got older,
we knew what it meant,”said one of their
sons, Mark Pierce. “But there was no hate
in our house, not a word spoken against
anyone.”
Even when Pierce returned to Germany
in 1969 to testify in war crimes trials, he
didn’t speak of it at home.
Instead, Charles raised his children to
be accepting of others and tolerant of dif-
ferent cultures, races and traditions.
“I think my mom had a lot to do with
that,” Mark said. “The woman has no
enemies.”
Libby, who frequently refers to herself
and Charles as “the lovebirds,” tells a
similar tale.
“We raised our children to be good
people, that’s all,” she said.
Telling his story
Charles Pierce kept his thoughts about
the Holocaust to himself for decades. Even
after his brother, Abe, began talking pub-
licly about his experiences, Charles kept
his peace.
That is, until his granddaughter asked
him to come speak at her class.
“We must teach our children what hap-
pened. We must teach them kindness,”
Charles said.
By telling his story and detailing both
the horrors he endured and the way he
once again found love, Charles believes he
can profoundly affect the children’s lives.
His son Mark, who travels with Charles
and helps him by reading excerpts from
Charles’ memoirs aloud, has seen the
positive effects first-hand.
“Students have come up to us and
thanked my dad for telling his story, for
putting their problems into perspective,

Summertime may mean vacation time
for some families, but for many military
families, it also means moving time.
Many families with school-age children
do their best to plan their move during
the summer to alleviate the stress of tran-
sitioning during the school year. How-
ever, a summer relocation does not nec-
essarily equate to a stress-free move.
For children and teens, moves are dif-
ficult no matter what time of year they’re
made. Before the school year ends, there
are a few things to consider to make the
move a bit easier.
Most important is honest and open
communication. No one, including a
child, wants to be surprised with a move.
Understandably, exact dates may not be
available. However, most children will
appreciate knowing that a move is in the
near future and that they may not be
returning to their current school in the
fall.
It always helps children to know they
aren’t alone and that others have been
in a similar situation and have done well.
Books and websites allow children to
connect with others and feel a little more
comfortable with an upcoming move.
Here are some great book ideas that
can be found at a local library:
• “We’re Moving!” by Heather Maisner
and Kristina Stephenson. When Amy
and her family move into a new house,
it takes some effort to make it feel like
home. Great book for infants and tod-
dlers.
• “The Berenstain Bears’ Moving Day,”
by Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain.
The Bear family tells the story of when
they moved to their tree house in Bear
County.
• “I’m Not Moving, Mama,” by Nan-
cy White Carlstrom and Thor Wick-
strom. When moving day comes, Little
Mouse refuses to leave his room.
• “Who Will Be My Friends?” by Syd
Hoff. Freddy moves to a new neighbor-
hood and spends the entire book looking
for new friends.
• “Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear
Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move,” by Ju-
dith Viorst, Ray Cruz, and Robin Preiss
Glasser. Angry Alexander refuses to
move away if it means having to leave
his favorite friends and special places.
• “Let’s Move Together,” by Carol M.
Schubeck. This book was written to help
children and parents communicate about
their feelings surrounding moving and
ways to adjust to the big transition.
• “A New House: Activity Book for 4
- 10 Year Olds,” by Jill Wenzel. The
games and activities in this book are de-
signed to help children adjust to living
in a new house.
• “The Moving Book: A Kids’ Sur-
vival Guide,” by Gabriel Davis. This
practical handbook is divided into three
sections: before the move, during the
move and after the relocation. It contains
useful tools for children to stay in touch
with their friends, such as an address
book and change-of-address postcards.
• “Footsteps Around the World: Relo-
cation Tips for Teens, 2nd Edition,” by
Beverly D. Roman, Dalene R Bickel
(Editor). This workbook-style text is
written for teenagers facing a relocation.
It offers organizational checklists, recom-
mends journaling and gives communica-
tion advice. Some of the information,
specifically websites, is dated, as it was
published in 2001.
If getting online is easier, here are some
website ideas to help as well:
• www.defenselink.mil/mtom/ MTOM
(for Kids & Teens) was developed by
military kids, for military kids, with real
stories and good advice on how to make
a move a good thing.
• www.militarychild.org An excellent
resource for military children resourc-
es.

long for and welcome the change, and at
other times we resist it.
Did you hear about the old man from
the back mountains who was used to life
being a certain way, but one day he found
himself in a large city standing for the
first time outside an elevator? He watched
as an old woman hobbled on, and the
doors closed. A few minutes later the
doors opened and a young woman
marched out. The father hollered to his
son, “Billy, go get your mother!”
From birth to death, changes keep
coming. We know a lot about this in the
military, don’t we? A few years of this
lifestyle can bring more changes than
some people experience in a lifetime, but
the pace of the change we encounter var-
ies a lot. So how do we deal well with
change if it seems to us to be slow, or
steady or fast?
• Slow change: Perhaps the change you
long for seems to be coming so sloww-
wwwwly. Perhaps you are waiting for new
orders, or for a spouse’s deployment to
end, or to be reunited with someone you
love, and it seems to be taking so long.
I recently heard about the Arctic wooly
bear caterpillar, which can live up to 14
years as a caterpillar before becoming a
moth.Talk about slow change! That cat-
erpillar might wonder if the change is
ever going to happen. But eventually it
does. Experiencing slow change requires
endurance, remembering always that
we’re in this for the long haul.
• Steady change: Perhaps change is
coming for you now at a steady rate. De-
pending on what the change is, you might
wish it was coming slower or faster, but
still it comes. Are you on a learning curve
now? Are you developing new skills? Are
you recuperating from illness or injury?
Are you adapting to a new environment?
Steady change requires patience to adapt.
We all adjust though, because we must.
• Fast change: Perhaps change is com-
ing now at a frenetic pace and it’s hard
to keep up with it all. So many seasons
of life are like this: leaving home, getting
married, welcoming children, launching
children, new orders, new responsibili-
ties, new surroundings, new circumstanc-
es, broken relationships, losing loved
ones, a new diagnosis. Changes some-
times come fast and furious. Dealing
with quick change requires much resil-
ience. Like surfers, we ride the waves as
they come.
Endurance, patience, resilience — these
are qualities we need to deal well with
life’s changes. Whether the changes you
are encountering now seem slow, steady
or fast, it helps so much to hold on in
faith to the One who has an abundant
supply of what you need today and will
need tomorrow, and who has promised
to be constant through every changing
circumstance. (Psalm 100:5) “His unfail-
ing love continues forever, and his faith-
fulness continues to each generation.”
(Malachi 3:6) “I am the Lord, and I do
not change.” Amen!
May God bless you in all your seasons
of change!

If the Boys & Girls Clubs of America
do indeed break the Guinness World Re-
cord for playing tag, 82 children and coun-
selors at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) will know they’re officially in the
record books.
From 3:30 p.m. PST Thursday, April
19, through 3:30 p.m. PST Friday, April
20, children all across the United States
took part in a game of tag in an effort to
set a record for “Most Participants in
Multiple Games of Tag Within a 24-Hour
Period.”
At the NBVCPort Hueneme youth cen-
ter, 33 children ages 5 to 17 and counselors
played the tag game, Color Wolf. At the
NBVCPoint Muguyouthcenter, 15 played
Cookie Monster. And at the youth center
at Catalina Heights, the military housing
complex in Camarillo, 34 played Fruit
Basket.
All three youth centers are affiliated
with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ameri-
ca.
“Today is all about having fun,” said
Brett Lane, youth sports coordinator for
the base. “Whether you’re 5 or 25, you get
to run like a kid, have fun and let loose.”
Go Tag is part of “Wanna Play?”a joint
effort by the Boys & Girls Clubs and Ma-
jor League Baseball to improve the fitness
and health of America’s children. NBVC
received a $2,500 grant from “Wanna
Play?” in February to support activities
and equipment to keep kids active.
Go Tag was also part of National
Boys & Girls Club Week, April 15-21.
Lane is eagerly awaiting word on
whether the record was set. So is Adam
Guy, director of Sports, Entertainment
and Alumni Development for the Boys
& Girls Clubs of America in Atlanta.
Guy said that as of April 24, con-
firmed participants numbered 30,825
at 574 clubs. He said it would take six
to eight weeks to send the final infor-
mation to the Guinness team, which
would then need to certify the re-
cords.
Mario Colletto, who helps lead ac-
tivities for the school-age children at
Port Hueneme, said that while he hopes
the record was broken, he was just glad
to see the younger kids enjoy an exer-
cise with the teenagers.
“They’re all very respectful to one
another,” he observed. “It’s great when
we have an event where they all get to
play the same game. It makes for a spe-
cial day.”

NMCRS
The Navy-Marine Corps Relief So-
ciety (NMCRS) at Naval Base Ventura
County held its 2012 Volunteer Recog-
nition ceremony April 17 in the ball-
room of the Bard Mansion as part of
National Volunteer Week.
Twenty-eight volunteers and their
guests attended the luncheon, which
opened with this message from retired
Adm. Charles S. Abbot, president of
NMCRS:
“I thank each of you exceptional
people whose extraordinary hearts beat
patriotically in the service of others. I
am grateful for your commitment, and
I am proud to serve at your side as a
member of Team NMCRS!”
Capt. Larry Vasquez, commanding
officer of Naval Base Ventura County,
his wife Nancy and Command Master
Chief Thomas Cyr came as guests of
honor and presenters.
NMCRS acknowledged the thou-
sands of hours worked in service to the
Relief Society and the military com-
munity — hours spent crocheting baby
blankets, teaching Budget for Baby
workshops, keeping the thrift shop or-
ganized and doing individual case man-
agement.
Volunteers with 100 hours or more
of service were recognized for their
contributions. One volunteer clocked
more than 10,000 lifetime hours.
Four volunteers were recognized for
meritorious or superior perfrmance, as
determined by the president of NMCRS.
Frances Schneider and Mary Wilson
were awarded meritorious service hon-
ors, and Rachel Baker and Tina
Egelston received superior performance
honors. All were presented a framed
certificate with a personal message from
the NMCRS president, an NMCRS pin
and a personalized nametag.
Receiving 100-hour awards were: Bill
Changus, Erica Gonzales, Penny Green,
Elizabeth Hoffman DeNeui, Corey
Kendrick, Cristina Lopez, Mae Ober-
miller, Lorraine Shallenberger, Cassie
Smith and Carole Zemlyn.
Receiving 300-hour awards were: Ly-
nette Davidson, Renato Ferrera, Ann
Owens, Veronica Patriz, Felisa Riotoc
and Bill Shallenberger.
Honored with 1,000-hour awards
were: Rachel Baker, Leo Olson and Es-
ther Olson.
Receiving 2,000-hour awards were:
Tina Egelston and Tom Melugin.
A 4,000-hour award went to Bea
Young; 6,000-hour, Fran Schneider;
8,000-hour, Mary Wilson; and 10,000-
hour, Pat Robinson.
With more than 37,800 hours con-
tributed by volunteers, it’s not hard to
understand that not only is NMCRS
grateful for all the volunteers, but
NMCRS also serves as a place that is
welcoming to those who want to give
back to the military community.
Recent volunteer Kerri Flynn credits
NMCRS for giving her an “instant
community” in what could have been a
lonely four months.
“It was great to have additional pur-
pose here and to learn more about the
Navy life,” she said.
If you are interested in joining this
dynamic team of volunteers, call 982-
4409 to sign up for the next volunteer
orientation.

The number of gold medals won by
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC)
in the 2012 Corporate Games contin-
ues to grow.
In the last two weeks, the base has
picked up gold medals in beach vol-
leyball, women’s horseshoes, men’s
horseshoes (for the third year in a row)
and coed horseshoes (for the second
year in a row).
The base now has a total of six gold
medals, with 17 events completed.
NBVC also added silver to its arse-
nal, taking second place in men’s table
tennis. A second coed horseshoes team
also took home a silver medal. The
base has five silver medals in all.
The base also has five bronze medals,
picking up the third-place finish in soc-
cer, nine-ball and basketball.
Nearly 300 people from NBVC are
taking part in the games, which pit lo-
cal organizations and businesses
against one another in events ranging
from miniature golf to Texas Hold
’Em.
The games run from March 28 to
May 12. The base is in Division AA,
for companies and organizations with
500 or more employees. Its major com-
petitors are the County of Ventura,
City of Ventura and Amgen.

There’s a dash on every tombstone —
that line between the date of birth and the
date of death, that everything-in-be-
tween.
What will your dash say about you?
“Will people look at that dash and think
about your integrity? What do you do with
that dash?”
Cmdr. Allen Blaxton, officer-in-charge,
Fleet Readiness Center (FRC) Southwest
Detachment Point Mugu at Naval Base
Ventura County, left about 15 teenagers
with that thought Wednesday, April 18,
as he and five other Sailors visited with
students at Gateway School. Located at
the Camarillo Airport, Gateway has 175
students who have been expelled from
other schools or released from juvenile
detention.
For the second year in a row, FRC Sail-
ors are meeting every other week with
some of the Gateway students, sharing
stories about overcoming life’s obstacles,
setting and meeting goals, finding success
— in other words, making that dash on a
tombstone mean something.
“It’s been a great program,” said Ralph
Velarde, Gateway’s assistant principal.
“The students want to be in it. And the
Sailors who come are young. They’re mak-
ing a connection.”
Aviation Structural Mechanic 1st Class
Carlos Lopez has been with the program
since day one last year, along with Avia-
tion Machinist’s Mate 1st Class Jorge
Chavez.
Each to a different degree, the Sailors
who join themevery other Wednesday talk
about their challenges growing up and
what led them to the Navy. They stress
that they’re not there to recruit; they’re
just there to listen, to offer some advice,
to answer questions.
Some of it isn’t pretty. One of the speak-
ers April 18 was Chief Aviation Electron-
ics Technician Wayne Hirschmann, who
talked about raising difficult sons. One boy
turned his life around; the other is dead.
“I’ve seen good decisions, and I’ve seen
bad decisions,”he told the students. “Make
the right decisions. And knowthat my ear
is your ear if you ever want to talk.”
Also visiting the school April 18 were
Chief Aviation Machinist’s Mate Joe Tay-
lor, Chief Aviation Electronics Technician
Patrick Robinson, and Aviation Struc-
tural Mechanic 1st Class Francisco Diego-
lopez.
Taylor said the Navy gave him oppor-
tunities he never dreamed of growing up
in St. Louis.
“In Japan, I climbed Mount Fuji,” he
said.
“You climbed Mount Fuji?” one boy
interrupted.
“Yes, I did,” Taylor said. “It was a six-
hour climb. We went up as a group, and
we came back as a group. It took deter-
mination and motivation to get us to the
top.”
Diegolopez opened up the day’s topic:
Getting and keeping a summer job. He
went around the room, asking the boys
and two girls what their dream job would
be. Painting, construction, playing music
were some of the answers.
“I just want a job that I enjoy,” said
one.
The Sailors talked about making real-
istic goals, staying focused on those goals,
overcoming rejection and persistence.
“You gotta start slow,” one Sailor
said.
“Yeah, baby steps,” one student an-
swered.
They talked about job interviews, about
appearance and presentation.
“First impression is everything,” one
boy said to himself.
They talked about what it takes to keep
a job in this economy, when there are 10,
20, 100 other people who can do the same
job and might be willing to work harder.
Showing up on time is a good start, they
agreed, but it’s the person who shows up
first, leaves last and keeps a positive atti-
tude who’s going to be safe.
After an hour, Blaxton wrapped up the
discussion.
“You’ve had obstacles,”he told the stu-
dents. “I’ve had obstacles myself. Howdo
you overcome them? That’s what’s impor-
tant.”
“This is your dash,” he said. “Make it
a good one.”

Work on the Point Mugu Gas Station,
which is temporarily closed for state-re-
quired environmental upgrades, was ex-
pected to begin in early April and be com-
pleted in early May.
However, a delay in obtaining permits
from the County of Ventura delayed the
beginning of the upgrades, and now the
gas station’s reopening will be delayed as
well.
“Barring any additional requirements,
the gas station may reopen near the end
of May,” said Anna Esguerra, manager
of the Navy Exchanges at Point Mugu
and Port Hueneme. “The community’s
patience is appreciated, and the NEX
apologizes for the inconvenience.”
Propane fuel is still available. Customers
need to visit the main store to arrange the
purchase.

Cruz Ceja understood per-
fectly why the Blue Lake Green
Bean was looking so healthy
there in its plastic bag in the win-
dow.
“First we took a paper towel
and stapled it and then we put
the bean in there,”the 5-year-old
explained. “Then we wrote our
name on it and we put it in the
window and then it growed.”
The instructor corrected him.
“Didn’t you do something
else?” she asked.
Cruz hesitated briefly before
his eyes lit up.
“We added water!” he said.
“That’s right,” the instructor
said. “And what’s going to hap-
pen next?”
“Transplanting!” shouted out
the other youngsters.
Cruz, the son of Sgt. Nazareth
Ceja of the Air National Guard,
and dozens of other children
who take part in the Child and
Youth Program (CYP) at Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC)
are learning about “Farm to
Fork,” and they’re growing their
own food in large gardening bins
behind the youth centers at both
Hueneme and Point Mugu.
At Point Mugu, the Blue Lake
Green Bean transplants will soon
join the potatoes, onions, garlic,
cabbage, kale, collard greens and
broccoli that are just starting to
sprout in the bins.
At Port Hueneme, seedlings
include yellow squash, zucchini,
yellowcucumbers, corn, cilantro,
tomatoes, bell peppers and jala-
peño peppers.
When harvest time comes, the
youngsters and teenagers will
cook up the veggies and have a
feast.
“They’ll eat kale?”asks a skep-
tical visitor.
“You bet!” said Stacey Tamai,
who is in her sixth year of teach-
ing basic agriculture to the kids.
“If they’ve had a hand in grow-
ing it and in harvesting it, they’re
much more likely to eat it.”
Tamai’s husband, Roland, is a
third-generation Ventura Coun-
ty farmer.
“Right now, sustainable farm-
ing is so huge, and yet there are
so many kids who don’t know
where their food comes from,”
Stacey Tamai explained. “When
a child tries something new —
smells it, touches it, eats it —
they’ll share it with their families
and then everyone will bene-
fit.”
Agromin of Oxnard recently
gave the youth centers seven tons
of planting mix made from or-
ganic material collected from
Ventura County communities.
“We got the gardening bins
three years ago but some have
been sitting empty because we
didn’t have the soil,” Tamai said.
“Now we’re already looking to
expand to fruit trees.”
This year, there was even
enough soil to create a small herb
garden, where mint, thyme, rose-
mary and basil will soon be mak-
ing an appearance.
Through a 4-Hcurriculum, the
children are learning that some
plants growfromseeds and some,
like potatoes and garlic, can take
root. Others, like the green beans,
can be transplanted.
They water the gardens regu-
larly and have learned about the
importance of sunshine and nu-
trients.
“The kids really enjoy this,”
said Chris Batelaan, the youth
program director for NBVC
Point Mugu.
Yes, but kale?
“Stir fry it up with a little bit
of soy sauce and they’re going to
love it,” Tamai said. “It’s amaz-
ing what happens when they’ve
had a hand in growing it.”
Seeds of knowledge — and kale — thrive at CYP gardens

Naval Air Warfare Center
Weapons Division (NAWCWD)
at Naval Base Ventura County,
Point Mugu, recently took part
in the Exploration of Science,
Technology, Engineering and
Math (STEM) Careers Expo in
Ventura.
Held March 21 at the Ventura
County Fairgrounds, the STEM
Expo showed 800 middle school
and high school students who
were attending the Ventura
County Science Fair how their
interest in science, technology,
engineering or mathematics could
lead to career opportunities.
NAWCWD employees Todd
Sohn, John Ma and Bruce Mill-
er volunteered to help with the
STEM Expo, while Matthew
South, William Stepler, Dennis
Duquette and Linda Buile judged
the science fair.

NSWC PHD Command Communications Office
Lillian Rodriguez and Regina Powell, engineers
at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme
Division (NSWC PHD), recently participated in
the Second Annual Professional Networking Social,
“Empowering the Future Innovators,” sponsored
by the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers
(SHPE) Student Chapter at Santa Barbara City
College.
The main goal of the April 13 event was to pro-
vide a forum for college and high school students
interested in pursuing science, technology, engineer-
ing and math (STEM) studies and careers. The
social allowed themto meet with professionals from
government and industry for an evening of work-
shops, demonstrations, networking, panel discus-
sions and keynote speakers.
A second objective was to pique the curiosity
and interest of students by giving them real-world
examples of how STEM is applied in jobs.
“The majority of the students were pursuing the
fields of engineering,”said Rodriguez, a computer
engineer, “specifically mechanical, electrical
and aeronautical, but there were some students
interested in computer science.”
Using modeling and simulation demonstra-
tions, Powell and Rodriguez showed some of
the engineering work done at the Navy base.
“The students found the models very inter-
esting,” said Powell, adding that some of them
were familiar with the software and hardware
used to create them.
“By seeing the model of a Navy ship, we can
better explain our engineering work to the stu-
dents and describe all the different components
of engineering that are involved,” said Pow-
ell.
Rodriguez said most of the students’ ques-
tions centered on the work done at the Naval
Surface Warfare Center.
“What different engineering fields are hiring;
if internships are available; how much college
do they need; and the one we hear a lot — do
they have to join the military to work at
NSWC?” Rodriguez explained.
NSWC Port Hueneme, which employs more
than 1,900 personnel, champions a variety of
programs involving local schools, such as the
Pre-Engineering Program for high school stu-
dents and the annual Engineering Challenge
Event for middle school students.

DIEGO GARCIA, British Indian
Ocean Territory — Seabees from Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB)
40 rose early on a recent Monday to
participate in a 26-mile bike ride, while
others took a long run to prepare for
the upcoming Physical Readiness
Test.
Navy personnel at Naval Support Fa-
cility Diego Garcia met at the island’s
picturesque marina, prepared with ath-
letic gear and hydration packs, to em-
bark on what would be a two-hour ride.
Though early in the morning, the heat
was already intense on the tropical is-
land, and medical staff was standing by
to support the athletes.
Races such as this one are just some
of the healthy ways to spend free time
on Diego Garcia.
“The island has a great gym and pool,
so I enjoy planning our workouts,” said
Builder 3rd Class Christian Guzman,
the detachment’s unit fitness leader. “I
personally spend time on the running
path along the main road. It’s very flat
and a good place to train for mara-
thons.”
Running and biking, while popular,
are not the only fitness-friendly pas-
times on the tiny island base. Weightlift-
ing, swimming and team sports are also
favorites among Fighting 40’s Seabees.
“We’re pretty isolated out here, and
this deployment is a perfect opportu-
nity to improve yourself,” said Con-
struction Electrician 3rd Class Rob
Schnettler, also a unit fitness leader for
Detail Diego Garcia. “You’re not get-
ting off this rock anytime soon, so
you’ve got to find a way to make it your
island and make the fun happen.”
Basketball games against other Navy
and Air Force commands and civilian
contractors are a weekly highlight for
several of NMCB 40’s Seabees.
“The great thing about basketball
games is that it gives us a way to unwind
after work, mingle with other people on
the island, and it’s a great way to stay
in shape,” said Builder 3rd Class Xavier
Spencer. “It’s good to play hard after
working hard, especially on deploy-
ment.”

NMCB 5
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 5 recently
participated in chemical, biological and
radiological (CBR) training at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
The April 10 event trained students on
the proper use of CBR protective equip-
ment, M40-A gas mask, Joint Logistics
Integrated Suit Technology (JSLIST) and
how to protect against CBR agents.
“We give basic overall knowledge of
different components of the gas mask and
knowledge of radiological and chemical
hazards,” said Hospital Corpsman 1st
Class Jennefer English, one of the instruc-
tors at NBVC’s Disaster Recovery
School.
Students were instructed on how to
properly don Mission Oriented Protective
Posture (MOPP) gear in the event of a
CBR attack.
After the classroom portion of the
course, students conducted CBRdrills and
practiced gas mask training in the Naval
Construction Training Center confidence
chamber.
“I think it is important that Seabees go
through the class because we are out in
the field,” said Logistics Specialist 2nd
Class Marquita Hennings, a Seabee as-
signed to NMCB 5.
Hennings said she learned new tech-
niques to maintain her gas mask and keep
it in usable condition. She said she’ll use
this training to teach junior service mem-
bers and while she’s on field training ex-
ercises.
NMCB 5 Seabees are preparing for a
scheduled Pacific Command deployment
early next year.

NCTC Port Hueneme Public Affairs Office
Right on the heels of winning a safety
award from the Naval Education and
Training Command, the safety manager
of the Naval Construction Training Cen-
ter (NCTC), Steven George, has been
named the sole recipient of the Navy
League of the United States Fiscal Year
2011 Admiral Vern Clark Individual Safe-
ty Award.
“I am still in shock,”George said. “It is
a competitive field.”
George credited the NCTCteam, calling
his co-workers “the real winners.”
“The safety programs only work because
everyone —staff and students —are mak-
ing the right safety decisions on and off
duty,” George said. “I love to be on the
deck plates and covering safety programs
during ‘A’ school and command indoctri-
nation, but my administrative duties pre-
vent me from being a more visible pres-
ence. The real winners are the NCTC
team.”
George, a retired senior chief, has been
employed by NCTC since retiring from
active duty in 2002.
The NCTC trains Seabees to operate in
remote locations all over the world. There
are about 150 military and civilian staff
members at the center, and an average of
7,000 students come through the program
each year.
“Mr. George has a tremendous work
ethic, and he is committed to the overall
mission, said Lt. Cmdr. Chad Koster, ex-
ecutive officer of the NCTC. “He is 100
percent focused on safety.”
In 2009, NCTC received the Navy
League’s Admiral Vern Clark Command
Safety Award.
George has established and fostered an
aggressive safety training program and
culture that promotes not only occupa-
tional safety and health awareness, but
incorporates recreational off-duty safety
as well.
His safety programs instill sound safety
principles and behaviors in staff and stu-
dents alike. During the last three years,
the total lost time case rate has continued
to decline, and there has not been a Class
A, Class B or civilian mishap.
Motorcycle mishaps dropped from two
in Fiscal Year 2010 to zero in 2011 — and
there are more than 40 command riders
in a densely populated traffic area of
California.
“I have been able to keep a solid network
with safety experts,” George said. “When
I have a question, I have several people to
turn to who are always willing to help me
out.”

SIGONELLA, Italy – Seabees from
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3, Detail Sigonella, rebuilt a
security fence last month at Naval Air
Station (NAS) Sigonella that had been
severely damaged by heavy rains and
flooding.
Shortly after the detail arrived at the
naval air station, heavy rains hit, flood-
ing the area and prompting the NAS
Public Works Department and NAS
Security to request assistance from the
Seabees.
“They call us because this is what we
do,” said Steelworker 3rd Class Adam
Smalley. “We assessed the situation,
provided the base with a list of what
we would need to make repairs, and
then got straight to work.”
Areas that were damaged included
the fleet postal office, solar panels, a
parking lot, a bus stop, the Navy Ex-
change roof, the base galley, the base
commissary and the security fence.
“Getting the fence repaired was very
high on the base’s priority list,” said
Lt. Cmdr. Don Crumpacker, NAS
Sigonella’s security officer. “This is our
first line of defense in keeping persons
off this base that are not autho-
rized.”
The Seabees removed the damaged
fence, cleaned up the site and installed
the replacement fence.
“Disaster prevention and recovery
operations are key to the Seabee mis-
sion,” said Chief Construction Electri-
cian Travis Canaday. “Projects like this
require a quick damage assessment and
even quicker estimation on how to
make repairs in the most efficient, ex-
peditious and available means. This is
what the Seabee ‘can do’ is all
about.”
The detail of Seabees deployed to
NAS Sigonella from Port Hueneme in
February as part of a routine six-month
deployment. The detail is part of
NMCB 3, an expeditionary element of
U.S. naval forces providing construc-
tion, engineering and security services
in support of national strategy, naval
power projection, humanitarian assis-
tance and contingency operations.

and in some cases for saving their
lives,” Mark said.
For Charles, telling the story to the
military is special, too.
“It’s an honor to speak to the mili-
tary. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t
for you. Doesn’t matter if you’re
Army, Navy or Air Force, I thank
you,” Charles said, addressing mili-
tary members assembled at Needham
Theater at NBVC Port Hueneme.
For their part, the assembled Sail-
ors, Seabees, civilians and family
members expressed their own appre-
ciation for Charles’ willingness to tell
his story.
“It’s truly amazing the strength of
will and character it took to survive,”
said Chief Staff Officer Capt. David
Sasek. “Meeting survivors and World
War II veterans brings history to life.
It helps us remember.”
Quoting orator Edmund Burke,
Sasek summed up the main reason it
is so important to remember the Ho-
locaust and its survivors:
“All that is necessary for evil to tri-
umph is that good men do nothing.
We must ensure that good men do not
stand by and do nothing.”

Bryan Harre’s television had
made the trek of a TV’s life-
time.
It had gone from a show-
room to a cherished spot in a
family room. Then, when a big-
ger and brighter TV joined the
family, it was moved into a
child’s bedroom and eventu-
ally relegated to a corner of the
garage. There it had sat until
making its last move — to a
recycling heap at Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC), Port
Hueneme.
“This recycling event was on
my wife’s radar screen,” said
Harre, an engineer at the Naval
Facilities Engineering Service
Center. “And recycling to help
the environment — well, that’s
what we do.”
The life of this television isn’t
quite over. Its shell will be sent
to a plastics recycler, perhaps
to be melted and molded into
something new. Its circuit
board will be recycled, its glass
tubes treated, the rest of its
parts put to other uses.
Same with the computer
monitors and printers and mi-
crowaves and speakers and
cables and every other piece of
household electronic waste —
7,000 pounds in all — that
made its way Friday, April 20,
to the Earth Day recycling
events at Port Hueneme and
NBVC Point Mugu.
There was no charge to drop
off the items.
“This is an opportunity to
support the people who live on
base and need to turn in old
electronic equipment,” said
Dan Shide, head of the Envi-
ronmental Division at NBVC.
The household e-waste recy-
cling event was the first on the
base in two years. It was a joint
effort of the base and CJ Seto
Support Services, a licensed
Newbury Park recycler that
hauls away materials collected
during recycling events in Ven-
tura County.
“This and other Earth Day
events provide a good oppor-
tunity to highlight today’s en-
vironmental issues and make
people aware of howimportant
the environment is — and how
seriously we take stewardship
and compliance here on the
base,” Shide said.

Earth Day events have been held at the facility since 2008. “The Navy Exchange Enterprise
supports many green initiatives worldwide as we build new buildings, renovate existing
facilities and look for ways to reduce our energy footprint with more energy-efficient food
and drink cooler displays, renewable materials and lighting initiatives,” she said.

“Who likes animals?”
With that, wildlife biologist Martin Ru-
ane had the complete attention of 60 first-
graders at Bard Elementary School in Port
Hueneme — no easy feat.
Telling them a few minutes later that
condors used to eat dead dinosaurs didn’t
hurt.
Ruane, who works for the Naval Base
Ventura County’s Environmental Divi-
sion, visited the school Friday, April 20,
and spent half an hour entertaining the
youngsters with stories about the many
animals that live on base and in the sur-
rounding area and what children can do
to help them thrive.
His Friday talk in honor of Earth Day
was a repeat of one he’d done the day be-
fore to a different group of first-graders.
As the father of a kindergartner, he knew
howto find that right mix of show-and-tell
and listening.
He brought along a bagful of “eeews,”
like a perfectly preserved bat, some sea
mammal fur and a bunch of animal
skulls.
He talked about camouflage and why
some coastal birds lay sand-colored eggs.
He used words like “habitat” and was
pleasantly surprised when several of the
first-graders knew what it meant.
He stressed that people must never, ever
go near or touch any wild animal, any nest
or any egg.
That perplexed one youngster, espe-
cially after Ruane held up a Canada goose
egg.
“If you’re not supposed to touch them,
why do you have one?” the boy asked.
“You know, that is a really good ques-
tion,” Ruane answered before discussing
his job as a wildlife biologist.
“It’s a fun job,” he said, adding that he
gets to wade through mud and collect
snails, and that he gets to see — and smell
— beaches covered with elephant seals.
First-grade teacher Mary Alvarado said
Ruane’s talk was important on several dif-
ferent levels.
“Everyone is really proud when some-
one from the base comes,” she said. “And
having someone come and share their pro-
fessional experiences with the children is
really important. They get to hear about
a profession other than teaching.”
Also, she said, the Earth Day lessons
are invaluable.
“This carries over into everything we
stress about recycling and keeping the
oceans clean,” she said.

“Who can guess what animal this is from?”
wildlife biologist Martin Ruane asks first-
graders at Bard Elementary School during
his visit Friday, April 20. No one guessed the
right answer: a pelican.

More than 50 runners and walkers took
advantage of the cool beachside tempera-
tures Thursday, April 19, as Naval Base
Ventura County (NBVC), Point Mugu,
hosted the Earth Day 5K.
One of the few lunchtime runs spon-
sored by Morale, Welfare and Recreation
at Point Mugu, the event also served as a
reminder about the need to recycle and to
protect Mother Earth.
Lloyd Nash, solid waste coordinator for
NBVC, was on hand to answer questions
about recycling and to hand out products
made with recycled materials, including
pencils and notebooks. He quickly ran out
of reusable totes.
Paul Van Zuyle of the Navy Informa-
tion Technology Center finished the run
first with a time of 19 minutes, 5 seconds.
Hospital Corpsman Fabiola Zerfas, a den-
tal technician at the Port Hueneme Dental
Clinic, was the first woman to finish, with
a time of 28 minutes, 7 seconds.
“We like having runs at the beach,”said
organizer Amanda Haskell. “It’s a nice
change of scenery.”

he enlisted in the Navy. In the
past year, Salazar has deployed
to Afghanistan, where he ex-
celled in leading and mentoring
junior troops through an eight-
month deployment to the Cen-
tral Command Area of Re-
sponsibility; enjoyed a very
short homeport; and is now
currently deployed to Okinawa,
Japan, where he has been serv-
ing as assistant platoon chief
in support of Pacific Fleet op-
erations.
His outstanding leadership
and role model mentorship was
recognized when he was se-
lected early last year as NMCB
40’s Sailor of the Year (SOY).
He then continued climbing the
ladder to become the 31st Sea-
bee Readiness Group and 1st
Naval Construction Division’s
SOY recipient.
“There are tens of thousands
of Sailors in the Pacific Fleet,
so to see one of our Seabees
accomplish what he did and be
recognized as the top sailor at
sea this past year is truly special
and an accomplishment that
will stay with 40 and the Naval
Construction Force forever,”
said NMCB 40 Commanding
Officer Tim J. DeWitt. “We
couldn’t be more proud of
Chief Select Salazar, and hap-
py for his wife Michelle, and
their children Louis and Mi-
kaella.”
Salazar has not taken this
journey alone, as he has had
the enduring love and support
of his wife and family along the
way.
“There are not enough words
to describe the joy I feel for my
husband,” said Michelle Sala-
zar. “I am extremely proud of
him and his accomplish-
ments.
“My husband loves what he
does, and I will continue to
support him through his pas-
sions and his career.
“I was born and raised here
in Ventura County, which has
given us the tremendous bless-
ing of having our family here
as a support system,” she add-
ed. “This has helped me per-
sonally through the difficulties
of separation and has allowed
my husband to focus on his
career knowing that we are safe
at home. I look forward to the
new opportunities this presti-
gious designation may bring to
his career and our family.”
Salazar will be officially pro-
moted to chief petty officer
May 18.
Every year, the Naval Construction
Training Center turns Dozer Field into a
messy obstacle course full of slippery mud,
water pits, ropes, logs and tires. Partici-
pants start with a two-mile run, then crawl
through, over and under muck to the fin-
ish line.
Due to the depth of water in the pits,
participants must be at least 16 years old.
Cost is $10 for military, $20 for civilians.
For the 400 who have pre-registered,
those who are 18 and older must be U.S.
citizens and must show photo identifica-
tion to gain access to the base May 19.
Registration remains open at the website
active.com for two other major events
coming up at NBVC. The Admirals Cup
Triathlon is June 23, and the Wounded
Warrior Half Marathon is Sept. 15.
For more information call 989-7378.
