Alexis R. Mulero Combat Correspondent Ditching, ditching, ditching, roared one of the instructors prior to the training vessel being swallowed by hundreds of gallons of sparkling blue water at the MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, swimming pool during a Modular Amphibious Egress Trainer demonstration, Nov. 7. The newly installed MAET provides some necessary underwater egress training for the base frequent-flyer Marines and Navy corpsmen of the Ground Combat Element who ride as combat passengers in helicopters and amphibious vehicles. The training is designed to give the Marines the knowledge, practice and skill to significantly increase the chances of surviving a mishap that leaves them in the water or underwater, possibly inverted, and possibly in the dark, said Petty Officer 1st Class Fernando Santos, a corpsman with Branch Medical Clinic Pearl Harbor. The MAET is commonly called a dunker and its cabin section is re-configurable to replicate the type of seating and emergency exits found on Marine Corps helicopters and amphibious vehicles. The training teaches students how to properly react when a water ditching occurs, said Chad Copeland, military sales and training manager for Survival Systems Groups USA Ltd., which designs and manufactures the training devices. The MAET system is designed similarly to the CH46 Sea Knight and CH53E Super Stallion helicopters with escape hatches and exits to provide Marines with a realistic scenario. Furthermore, the MAET is made of a stainless steel See MAET, A-7 Sgt.Alexis Mulero James Gumling, MAET instructor and retired Navy corpsman, awaits the lowering of the training vessel. Driver classes come to K-Bay Sgt. Robert Carlson Press Chief Driver s training is coming to Hawaii, and MCB Hawaii s Marine Corps Community Services is working to make it more convenient and affordable than what is currently offered. The contracted courses will be held on MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, and the certified instructors will provide the necessary classes and important experience required for new drivers to pass their driving test and get a driver s license. Schofield Army Barracks offers similar programs now, and each unit there has a program in place to train drivers. The MCB Hawaii program will be similar, with the same or better prices, and will serve all MCB Hawaii family members who are ready to start driving. The Hawaii Marine Newspaper will run an article in a future edition which will outline the program s requirements and the costs involved. The MCB Hawaii program is scheduled to start Dec. 16. Parents of kids aged who are interested should contact MCCS at and answer a short survey to help officials customize the program to residents here. Governor, Hawaii residents honor veterans at State Cemetery Pfc. Monroe Seigle Members of the Chosin Few and other veterans organizations join Father Rubie in a prayer at the ceremony. Pfc. Monroe F. Seigle Combat Correspondent The Governor s Veteran s Day Ceremony took place at the Hawaii State Veteran s Cemetery, Monday, to honor those who served in wars past and present. More than 50 veterans organizations were present from every branch of service. This is a great way to honor all my fellow Marines and veterans who didn t come home from combat, said Father Richard Rubie, a priest from the Assisiceltic Catholic Church and a veteran of World War II and the Korean War. They are true heroes and they must not be forgotten for the sacrifices they made for our country. Rubie gave the invocation during the ceremony and said a prayer for all the veterans who died during combat. The Veteran s Day address was given by Governor Benjamin J. Cayetano, who gave a heartwarming speech about how America s veterans have made our country the strong nation it is today through their courageous actions during combat. Today we join Americans everywhere to honor our veterans, said Cayetano. Our gratitude goes out to them and their families. After retired Sgt. Maj. Allan Kellogg, a Medal of Honor recipient, placed a wreath, Marines from Headquarters Company, 3rd Marine Regiment, performed a military honors rifle salute followed by a flyover by Company C, 193rd Aviation Regiment, of the Hawaii National Guard. Our veterans are the lifeblood of our freedom, said Rubie. They gave their lives for our freedom and were the protectors of peace when our nation s security was compromised. We must remember them not only on this day, but everyday. Ohana Hotels, employees say Mahalo to Hawaii Marines and Sailors Sports Editor Outside the entrance to the Ohana East Hotel, Marines and Sailors from MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, piled onto the sidewalk. As they exited vehicles, Ohana East employees placed leis around their necks and kissed their cheeks, welcoming them with aloha. In honor of the Marine Corps 227th birthday, 40 K-Bay Marines and Sailors, including Sgt. Major Filipo Ilaoa, base sergeant major, attended a free luncheon, Nov. 6, compliments of Ohana Hotels Corp. in Waikiki. Marines and Sailors from 1st Bn., 3rd Marine Regiment; 3rd Bn., 3rd Marine Regiment and 1st Radio Bn. attended a luncheon held at Duke s Restaurant located in the Waikiki Outrigger, while the Marines and Sailors from Headquarters Bn., MCB Hawaii and Combat Service Support Group 3 attended a separate luncheon in the Ohana East conference room. Mildred Courtney, corporate director of government and military liaison for Outrigger Hotels and Resorts, felt that the company really needed to do something special for the Marine Corps birthday, said Chuck Shishido, director of operations for Ohana Hotels. Courtney suggested and arranged the two luncheons with the help of the Ohana Hotels staff. See OUTRIGGER, A-7 Marines and Sailors feasted on the buffet during the luncheon at the Outrigger Hotel and at Duke s restaurant.

I would like to address the issue of citations being issued for lawn maintenance in housing. I live in the Capehart housing area and have a lawn service that cuts and edges my lawn once a week, at a cost of $100/month. We employ the service due to the rigors of my husband s det schedule and the fact that we have small children. Lately, the housing office has been issuing citations for lawns that, although they are being cut once a week, have the shooters growing through as a result of the reseeding process that is common this time of year. Furthermore, these citations are being levied in a random fashion. Houses on my end of Bancroft were given 48 hours to remedy the situation or pay a $65 fine, while around the curve on Bancroft, lawns and bushes were clearly in violation of the regulation and no notices were served. Finally, I might suggest that if the base regulation is going to be enforced so stringently, more attention should be given to maintaining the common areas, for which the maintenance department is responsible. Adjacent to my yard is a steep hill that is not my responsibility, yet this grass is only trimmed every other month or so. It routinely grows to 12 inches or more. The Marine Corps and Naval officers who live in my area work long hours, and it is not uncommon for them to return home at night after dark. Most of the wives work or have small children at home during the day. In the evenings, most time is allocated for soccer, baseball or homework. Submitted by Jennifer Nichols, family member I think that perhaps some flexibility in enforcing the regulation is in order, taking into account the rate at which the grass grows this time of year. I think a reasonable standard would be to expect residents to cut and edge once a week. Most of us do care about the general appearance of our neighborhood, as is evidenced by the improvements we have made to the landscaping around our quarters, at our own expense. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Jennifer Nichols Mrs. Nichols, I have been asked by the commanding general to respond to your of Oct. 9 since your recommendation and concerns fall within my staff responsibilities. He appreciates that you have taken the time to participate in the CG Mail program. Let me start by saying that we appreciate the extra effort you put into your yard. It is apparent that you take great pride in the appearance of not only your quarters, but also the neighborhood, and for that, you have my admiration and respect. The Family Housing Resident Handbook, provided in each quarters, covers lawn maintenance guidelines. These guidelines not only help prevent havens for pests such as insects and rodents, they ensure the overall quality of life for all our residents. Specifically, paragraph states that residents should mow their lawns as often as BRIG. GEN. MCABEE necessary to keep them neat. It also states that grass should not be shorter than one inch and no longer than three inches high. I am aware that at different times throughout the year the grass will go to seed; however, these seed stems are unsightly, do not present a neat appearance, and therefore must be mowed down. Currently, two family housing department employees issue citations for lawn maintenance violations aboard MCB Hawaii (Kaneohe Bay, Camp H.M. Smith, and the Manana housing areas) sighting over 2,600 housing units. This process is lengthy and takes several days to complete. It is very likely that they could sight one housing area on Monday and not get to an adjacent area until several days later. You make a valid point with regard to the common areas maintained by the base. In fact, we too are taking steps to increase more frequent mowing. We have included the mowing of all housing common areas in our new Family Housing Maintenance contract, which is programmed to begin in January In the interim, if you feel that the common area adjacent to your yard needs to be maintained more frequently than what actually occurs, please contact your area inspector. He will contact the facilities department to schedule the requested maintenance. Again, thank you for taking the time to express your recommendations and concerns via the CG Mail Program. Mr. Kent Murata Assistant Chief of Staff, G-4 (Editor s Note: Letters of any length may be trimmed and edited in the interest of good taste and brevity.) The commanding general invites input from the base community via C.G. Mail on the following topics: What are we doing that we shouldn t be doing? What are we not doing that we should be doing? What are we doing that we should be doing better? Responses should include a recommendation that will help solve the problem and must include your name and return address so that staff may respond.

Hundreds crowded Dewey Square and watched in wonder as Marines and Sailors brought the past to life and told the story of the United States Marine Corps. In celebration of the Corps 227th birthday, MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, held its traditional uniform pageant and cake-cutting ceremony Nov. 8. Dressed in period uniforms and armed with weapons reflecting the chronological history of the Corps, Marines and Sailors began the Marine Corps story at Tunn Tavern, Philadelphia, Pa., birthplace of the Corps. As each ring of the bell tolled, another piece of history came to life, from the Revolutionary, Civil and Korean wars, to the Marines of today. The pageant s final display was a heartfelt re-enactment of the raising of the flag over Mt. Suribachi. The crowd gave a standing ovation as the American flag unfurled overhead in the center of the field. Following the uniform pageant, Brig. Gen. Jerry C. McAbee, commanding general of MCB Hawaii, quoted an unknown Marine from Khe Sanh who left a note pinned to an empty MRE package, For those who have fought for it, life has a special meaning that those protected will never know. Today was a great celebration of our beloved Corps. I could not have been more pleased with the pageant Marines poise and motivation, said Brig. Gen. McAbee. I was also proud to see the genuine affection from our Marines in the crowd when we called upon our veterans to stand and be recognized, Former Marine Vivian Thompson, 91, was the oldest Marine present at the pageant and was served the first piece of cake during the cake cutting ceremony.

4 A-4 November 15, 2002 HAWAII MARINE Research proves club drug dangers Across the country, teens and young adults enjoy all-night dance parties known as raves and increasingly encounter more than just music Alan I. Leshner, Ph.D. Director, National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health Dangerous substances known collectively as club drugs including Ecstasy, GHB and Rohypnol are gaining popularity. These drugs, however, aren t fun drugs. Although users may think these substances are harmless, research has shown that club drugs can produce a range of unwanted effects, including hallucinations, paranoia, amnesia, and, in some cases, death. When used with alcohol, these drugs can be even more harmful. Some club drugs work on the same brain mechanisms as alcohol and, therefore, can dangerously boost the effects of both substances. Also, there are great differences among individuals in how they react to these substances. No one can predict how he or she will react. Some people have been known to have extreme, even fatal, reactions the first time they use club drugs. And studies suggest club drugs found in party settings are often adulterated or impure even more dangerous. Because some club drugs are colorless, tasteless and odorless, they are easy for people to slip into drinks. Some of these drugs have been associated with sexual assaults, and for that reason, they are referred to as date rape drugs. A Primer on Club Drugs X, Adam, and MDMA are slang names for Ecstasy, which is a stimulant and a hallucinogen. Young people may use Ecstasy to improve their moods or get energy to keep dancing; however, Illegal substances chronic abuse of Ecstasy appears to damage the brain s ability to think and regulate emotion, memory, sleep and pain. G, Liquid Ecstasy, Georgia Home Boy or Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) may be made in homes by using recipes with common ingredients. At lower doses, GHB can relax the user, but, as the dose increases, the sedative effects may result in sleep and eventual coma or death. Roofie or Roche (Rohypnol) is tasteless and odorless. It mixes easily in carbonated beverages. Rohypnol may cause individuals under the influence of the drug to forget what happened. Other effects include low blood pressure, drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, and stomach upset. Special K or K (Ketamine) is an anesthetic. Use of a small amount of ketamine results in loss of attention span, learning ability and memory. At higher doses, ketamine can cause delirium, amnesia, high blood pressure, depression and severe breathing problems. Speed, Ice, Chalk or Meth (Methamphetamine) is often made in home laboratories. Methamphetamine use can cause serious health concerns, including memory loss, aggression, violence, psychotic behavior and heart problems. Acid or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) may cause unpredictable behavior depending on the amount taken, where the drug is used, and on the user s personality. A user might feel the following effects: numbness, weakness, nausea, increased heart rate, sweating, lack of appetite, flashbacks and sleeplessness. A Medical Researcher s Bottom Line Raves or all-night dance parties continue to attract teens and young adults who may think Ecstasy, GHB, Rohypnol and other club drugs are harmless. This is not true. While researchers continue to study club drugs with a sense of urgency, treatment and prevention strategies are being developed. The bottom line is simple: even experimenting with club drugs is an unpredictable and dangerous thing to do.
5 A-6 November 15, 2002 HAWAII MARINE Golden Eagles depart for Misawa, Kadena Lt. j.g. Teresa Owens Patrol Squadron 9 Beginning the day after Thanksgiving, the nearly 400 members of Patrol Squadron 9 will pack their bags, kiss their loved ones goodbye and depart Hawaii for a six-month deployment to the Western Pacific and Southeast Asia. Known as the Golden Eagles, Sailors assigned to VP-9 are stationed at MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, and operate P-3C Orion patrol aircraft. Though originally designed for long-range antisubmarine warfare, the Orion s missions have expanded in recent years to include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, precision strike targeting, maritime interdiction operations, counter-narcotics, and search and rescue. The Golden Eagles have had a busy and successful year. Following their return from a highly successful deployment to the Middle East last December, the Golden Eagles set out almost immediately to begin the year-long process of training and preparing for their December deployment. Having been among the first to participate in air missions supporting Operation Enduring Freedom after Sept. 11, the aircrews and maintenance personnel had developed a high level of expertise in maintaining and operating the P-3C under extremely challenging conditions. This expertise would prove an invaluable asset to the Golden Eagles during their Inter-Deployment Training Cycle. But they would not rest on their laurels; each deployment presents unique challenges and new hurdles to overcome. Navy Cmdr. Brad Carpenter, commanding officer of VP-9, is very pleased with his squadron s progress over the past year. Following a deployment, many senior members of a squadron transfer to other Each of our maintainers, aircrew and administrative personnel will be challenged to support widely diverse missions. Navy Cmdr.. Brad Carpenter Commanding Officer,, Patrol Squadron 9 Courtesy of VP-9 Patrol Squadron 9 is scheduled to deploy with their P-3C Orion aircraft to Japan. commands, and they are replaced with new personnel. The purpose of the IDTC is to bring everyone in the squadron to a level where they are deemed combat ready and able to deploy. The men and women of VP-9 have worked extremely hard over the past year to prepare for our upcoming deployment, said Carpenter. It has been an extremely busy and compressed home cycle, but the entire squadron has performed marvelously. During this IDTC, the Golden Eagles successfully completed an Operational Readiness Evaluation, Aviation Maintenance Inspection, Fleet NATOPS Evaluation, and Qualification Cycles for eleven aircrews. Additionally, VP-9 has supported exercises and flown more than 500 hours during JTFEX, RIMPAC 2002, Fleet Battle Experiment Juliet and ASWEX. They have sent planes, aircrews and maintenance personnel on detachments to San Diego, Calif.; Fallon, Nev.; and Hickam AFB, Hawaii. In late May, the Golden Eagles conducted overwater navigation and cold weather operations training on a flight to Kodiak, Alaska. In July, an aircrew from VP-9 located a kayaker adrift off the Big Island, who had been missing for nearly a week, and directed rescue swimmers to his location. The diligence of this Golden Eagle aircrew undoubtedly saved the man s life. Now, after nearly a year of training, preparation and anticipation, the Golden Eagles of VP-9 are about to embark on their next challenge: a deployment to Japan. Though primarily deployed to Misawa AFB in northern Japan and Kadena AFB in Okinawa, the Golden Eagles could find themselves spread across the Western Pacific. When deployed, the Golden Eagles will fall under the command of Task Force 72, whose area of responsibility encompasses more than 56 million square miles, extending from the Northern Pacific Ocean, bordering Russia, to the South China Sea and westward over the entire Indian Ocean, from the southern tip of Africa to the Gulf of Aden. Task Force 72 is comprised of two patrol squadrons (one of which will be VP- 9) together with special squadron detachments and assigned surface ships. In addition to the previously mentioned mission areas, the Golden Eagles may have the opportunity to participate in joint exercises and operations with the armed forces of other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan and Australia. Though uncertain as to what exactly the next six months will bring, the Golden Eagles of VP-9 stand ready to play their role in the continuing war on terrorism and in supporting the nation s interests overseas. Carpenter summarized it best when he recently addressed squadron members and their spouses at a briefing in preparation for deployment: Each of our maintainers, aircrew and administrative personnel will be challenged to support widely diverse missions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you. Your contributions and sacrifices have directly contributed both to the success of the Golden Eagles and to the security of our nation.
6 HAWAII MARINE November 15, 2002 A-7 Sgt. Alexis R. Mulero Instructors discuss the functions of the training vessel with a few of the installation s commanding officers. MAET, From A-1 frame with the general shape of the cabin section of a helicopter. It is nearly 18-feetlong and more than eight feet in diameter. Typically, it can hold a maximum of Marines at one time, and begins its training cycle from a position suspended over a pool from a large, permanently mounted crane. The hoist lowers the MAET into the pool to simulate ditching, and then raises the MAET after the practice egress is complete. During the cycle, as the dunker enters the water, it usually rolls right or left to a disorienting, inverted position. The training course lasts two days and includes classroom time in which instructors cover various hazards while submerged, the proper use of available equipment, and the correct way to conduct an escape/egress from a submerged helicopter or vehicle. After the classroom session, the Marines move on to the Shallow Water Egress Trainer that is a floating chair with a frame similar to a seat in a helicopter. Students practice holding their breath, gaining underwater orientation using procedures to assist in finding an escape exit, and conducting egress to the water s surface. Upon completion of the SWET training, the Marines move into the deep water for several rides in the dunker. The Marines perform six to seven ditching cycles and during some of the cycles, they are exposed to lights out or night conditions. Anyone would find it tough to deal with the disorientation of being upsidedown, said Perry Dunn, program manager, American Systems Corporation. Add that to the uncomfortable feeling of having water up your nose and in your ears, and not having air to breathe for 20 seconds or so. The MAET is undergoing final inspection testing and is scheduled to be ready for use Dec. 1. When Marines complete this training they express a high level of confidence because they can remain calm, stay strapped in until motion stops, use their leverage to open an exit, pull themselves to and through the exit, swim to the surface, and survive to fight another day, said Dunn. OUTRIGGER, From A-1 We wanted to help celebrate the birthday of the Marine Corps, and show our appreciation to the Marines and Sailors for all the help they have given our company. said Shishido. They defend our country, stay in our hotels during their liberty and allow us to come to Kaneohe Bay and participate in public functions, such as BayFest, and promote our hotels. We wanted to honor them for all that they do. A small number of Ohana employees from each of the 14 hotels owned by the corporation were invited to attend the luncheon and spend the afternoon with the Marines and Sailors. Staff and military members were seated together at each table, giving them a chance to interact with one another. Lance Cpl. Ruth Corrigeux, a weather observer with Marine Corps Air Facility, spent most of the luncheon discussing Waikiki and the Marine Corps way of life with Lily Tran, guest service manager for Ohana Hotels. This was a great idea. It gives us a chance to get to know the outside community and the company many of us depend on, said Corrigeux. It s nice to know who is responsible for our service and to have a personal relationship with them, rather then nameless faces. Tran felt that it was an opportunity to pull back the curtain on a Marine s everyday life. Marines are portrayed as tough, shoot em up types. But the public never gets to see what life is like on an everyday basis. It s really amazing how much work these Marines and Sailors do outside of combat. The luncheon was served as a buffet, allowing guests to have as many servings as they wanted. The buffet offered guests a wide variety of foods such as fruits and salads, rice, potatoes and chicken. Following the buffet, a dessert table was opened up; the centerpiece being a large white cake decorated with the words Happy Birthday Marine Corps. This was a good way to show their respect, by actually sitting and talking with us, said Lance Cpl. Justin Arnold, an explosive detection dog handler with the Provost Marshal s Office s canine unit. We work hard, and it s kind of a thankless job. It s nice to get some gratitude. The Marines and Sailors were each given a gift package of Ohana Hotels merchandise including a beach ball, a tee shirt and a hardcover tour book of Oahu and Ohana Hotels. As the luncheon came to an end, there were hearty handshakes and even a few embraces as the guests left with not only full stomachs but also a better understanding of one another.

7 Hawaii M ARINE L IFESTYLES Hawaii Marine B Section November 15, 2002 Marine Corps Base Hawaii provided an honorary color guard for the opening of the exhibit, and the Marine Forces Pacific Band provided patriotic music during the Camp Tarawa exhibition dedication Nov. 6. Richard Smart, owner of Parker Ranch, donated his home Pu u opelu to be used as divisional headquarters for a training camp during World War II. Today, it is home to an exhibit that commemorates the contributions of Camp Tarawa Marines, Sailors and Waimea residents who supported the war efforts. Remembering Camp Tarawa The Big Island s newest exhibit reminds the world of Hawaii s war efforts Story and Photos by Sgt. Alexis R. Mulero Combat Correspondent WAIMEA, Hawaii Forgotten to most Americans is a place where more than 50,000 Marines and Sailors prepared for some of the most significant battles in the Pacific between 1942 and During World War II, Camp Tarawa was home to leathernecks and Sailors from the 2nd and 5th Marine Divisions, and the V Amphibious Corps. Nearly 60 years after these service members set foot on this island, more than 120 guests and family members gathered to pay tribute to these men and women during a ceremony Nov. 6, which marked the opening of an exhibit that recalls Waimea s role during this never-to-be-forgotten war. Army representatives first came to the Waimea area of the island in the summer of 1941 to explore areas suitable for training. In the aftermath of the infamous Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, staging areas for American troops were rapidly raised throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Three months into American involvement in World War II, a vast Army camp for 19,000 men had been established on more than 50,000 acres of lofty saddle between the great volcanoes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. That area was Parker Ranch, and it became host to the largest Marine Corps training facility in the Pacific when the 2nd Marine Division arrived there in December 1943, after its Bill Thompson, a corpsman who served with the Marines during the battle at Tarawa takes a moment to remember his fallen comrades during the opening of the Camp Tarawa exhibit, Nov. 6. amphibious assault on the island of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll. Shortly after its arrival, the survivors of this battle quickly renamed what locals knew as Camp Waimea, and gave it the name of the battle they had just endured. Camp Tarawa was really established after the Marines arrived from the bloody battle of Tarawa, said Carl Carlson Jr., Parker Ranch trustee. The Marines came back here to rest, replace the wounded and prepare for battle. Another remarkable fact about the camp is that while training there, 5th Marine Division Marines scaled nearby Pu u Ula ula and Buster Brown Mountains, daily, so that they would be ready to climb the now legendary Mt. Suribachi when the time came to assault Iwo Jima. This community played a large part in the preparation of the Marines prior to the assault on Iwo Jima, said Carlson. Carlson also spoke about the impact Marines and Sailors had on the local community. Waimea leapt into the twentieth century because of the technology that seemed to have followed the Marines into town. An electric generator allowed settlement houses to be lit by bulb rather than kerosene. Waimea Elementary School and the Waimea Hotel became a 400-bed hospital with modern medical facilities, and engineers dammed the Waikoloa stream, constructed reservoirs to supply water to the division and the town, and erected temporary Canek structures behind the St. James Church. Ranch owner Richard Smart volunteered his home Pu u opelu as divisional headquarters, and 40 years later he donated land to establish a Camp Tarawa monument near Mamalahoa Highway, west of Waimea, near the entrance to the Parker Ranch historic homes tourist attraction. The special exhibit at Pu u opelu includes artifacts that were collected by the Pacific War Memorial Association, which had been stored at Hilo s Lyman Museum since 1996, with others collected by South Kohala residents. The exhibition will continue through the end of the year. This exhibit is a beautiful work of art and constant reminder of all those Marines, Sailors and their families who trained and fought for this country in World War II, said Bill Thompson, an Marine Sgt. Rex Weigle, a Vietnam War veteran and resident of Waimea, stands proudly to honor his fellow service members who trained at Camp Tarawa during World War II. 80-year-old retired Navy corpsman who fought alongside the Marines at Tarawa. The ceremony also included a special musical tribute by the Marine Forces Pacific Band and an honorary color guard. Thousands of American boys trained here, said Rex Weigle, a retired Marine sergeant and veteran of the Vietnam War. For some of them, this was their last home on American soil. It is imperative that we remember them. Above The Camp Tarawa Monument is dedicated to Marines and Sailors who trained in the Waimea community. It is located near the entrance to the Big Island s Parker Ranch historic homes tourist attraction. Left Visitors take time to pause at the Camp Tarawa Monument before the dedication ceremony Nov. 6.

9 Pfc. Monroe F. Seigle Combat Correspondent The Marines are known as a band of brothers who come from all over the world and from many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Included in those many different backgrounds are American Indians, who have made many sacrifices throughout the history of this great nation. During November, MCB Hawaii celebrates American Indian Heritage Month, to honor Native Americans who have made positive contributions to our country and proudly serve in our Armed Forces. American Indians from many different tribes have made outstanding sacrifices for the Marine Corps. They are also a part of our rich history and have courageously fought in every American war in which U.S. forces have been involved. Private First Class Ira Hamilton Hayes, a full-blooded Pima, enlisted in the Marine Corps in He belonged to the 5th Marine Division that assaulted Iwo Jima. He then took part in raising the American flag over the volcanic peak on Mount Suribachi. The famous photo taken of that flag raising became one of the most inspiring war photographs in our nation s history, as well as a monument in our nation s capitol and here aboard MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. Other wellknown figures were the Navajo Code Talkers. The Navajos language skills played an important role in the South Pacific and were used extensively in the battles of Iwo Jima, Guam, Peleliu, Okinawa, Saipan, Tarawa and Guadalcanal. Afterward, a Marine officer made the statement, Were it not for the Navajo Code Talkers, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima and other places. The Japanese never broke the Navajos code. Another American Indian Marine was Col. Gregory Pappy Boyington, who served as commanding officer of VMF- 214, also known as the Black Sheep. HAWAII MARINE November 15, 2002 B-3 Corps recognizes patriotism of American Indians National Archives Colonel Gregory Pappy Boyington led the Black Sheep Squadron in World War II. Boyington was an outstanding flier who defeated several enemies, even when he was highly outnumbered. During World War II, Boyington was leading a mission when he noticed two enemy aircraft approaching. After shooting one down and pursuing the other, he encountered several more enemy fighters before being shot down over Bougainville. Boyington escaped death by ejecting himself from the plummeting aircraft at an altitude of 100 feet. He was captured by the Japanese, but survived 20 months of beatings and maltreatment. He was awarded the Medal of Honor. Native American men and women have been an integral part of our fighting forces throughout our nation s history and continue to give selfless service today. Many people ask us why we fight the White Man s war, said Raymond Nakai, a former Navajo code talker. Our answer is that we are proud to be Americans. We always stand ready when our country needs us. National Archives Navajo code talkers used their unique, unwritten language to pass undecipherable messages during the War in the Pacific.
10 B-4 November 15, 2002 HAWAII MARINE At last the big day arrives for a young corporal Cpl. Luis R. Agostini Marine Forces Pacific What do you think of being a soldier, and a father? Hopefully, being good at one makes you better at the other. Mel Gibson, as Army Lt. Col. Hal Moore, advising his junior officer on the dual roles of father and troop leader in We Were Soldiers. Boy, I hope that s true. The first few days of fatherhood were comparable to the crucible the final 54-hour event during Marine Corps recruit training that spans more than two days and leaves recruits dependent upon each other with little food and sleep. Similar to that event but now surrounded by nurses, doctors and my wife I received a title that I will carry with me for the rest of my life: daddy. It happened Nov. 1 at 1:01 p.m. at Tripler Army Medical Center. I looked into Luis Vincent s eyes for the first time. I finally held the little man who will carry on the Agostini name, surpass his forefathers accomplishments and exceed everyone s expectations of an Agostini. Words, spoken or written, cannot describe the feeling a man experiences when, for the first time, he realizes that he is living for more than just himself. His child, directly or indirectly, becomes the only reason for his existence. He may fight battles across the globe, with other fathers, to make sure that his children enjoy the liberties granted to them by the U.S. Constitution. He will go to work everyday, with mouth shut and eyes open, and accomplish each task however trivial so that he can collect a paycheck twice a month and make sure that his child has a meal on the table and a shirt on his back. Everyone readers who gave their support, my staff noncommissioned and officers who guided and understood my situation during these last nine months, my friends and family, the Key Volunteers who brought overflowing plates of food almost as soon as we stepped foot into our house, The Agostinis pose for picture moments after the birth of their first child at Tripler AMC. and my wife who endured nine months of pregnancy culminating with the surgery that gave me my first son (as well as a little bit of embarrassment in Courtesy of the Agostini Family this series) deserves thanks. (Editor s Note: This is the fifth in a series of articles chronicling the Agostinis experiences and resources available for expecting couples.)

Hopes are high for the Marine team that will feature six nationally ranked fighters and ambitions of winning this year s All- Armed Forces Tournament Championship, according to Head Coach Master Sgt. Robert J. Michaels. MAG-24 s defense all season, but was not enough to keep the Warriors motivated to win. We just executed well, said Rick Hargrave, head coach for the Bandits. Everything we tried, we executed well. We re starting to get some experience under our belt, and that s making everything come together for the team. MAG-24 s immaculate execution snowballed as the game wore on. The defense capitalized on HQBN penalties and mistakes, and gave the MAG- 24 offensive squad excellent field position and scoring opportunities. By putting pressure on HQBN quarterback Peter Degennaro, the Bandit defense effectively shut down the passing game and was able to focus on blocking the ground campaign. The Warrior offensive line could not keep the bandits from plundering the backfield, and the frustration showed as HQBN took several trips backward because of penalties.

Within the first few minutes of the game, the Raiders Quarterback Dalton Hillard, 12, broke through the Titans defensive line with the help of his extremely ferocious linemen, and scored the first touchdown of the game. Following the touchdown, the Raiders ran the ball in for the extra point, ending the first quarter 7-0.

17 HAWAII MARINE November 15, 2002 C-3 1/3, From C-1 through the 1/3 defensive squad on the ground, and the desperate long bombs down the field resulted in more interceptions than completions. Raiders quarterback Dwayne Adams connected with Jason Gates, Richard Francillo and Jeremy Boyer for motivation-crushing gains through, over and around the Bone Crusher defense. Near the end of the third quarter, the Bone Crushers were displaying even less intensity and drive, and the Raiders capitalized. After getting nowhere with the running game, Bone Crushers quarterback Dave Heyman threw an interception to Raider safety Marvin Jones, and the Raiders turned the drive into six points. The Bone Crushers scored once more in the fourth, and the game ended Ball Control Offense, were the three words head coach Ashley Britt used to describe how his Raiders dominated the Bone Crushers for the entire game. There is a lot of motivation on this team, and we ve had a lot of great practices. We ll be ready to win on Friday. The Raiders face the Bandits of MAG-24 at 6 pm. tonight for the championship at Pop Warner Field. Sgt. Robert Carlson The running game is where both winning teams made their money in the semifinals. Left 1/3 s Richard Francillo breaks the Bone Crushers defense, and Jarold Hager (above) runs past the HQBN defenders. MAG-24, From C-1 Christian Gonzalez and even quarterback Ron Bradbury, brought the score at halftime to A Degennaro to Brian Whitt pass scored HQBN their only six points in the half. The Warriors failed to muster any momentum after their first touchdown of the night, and continued to let the Bandit defense meddle with their backfield. More amazing than the fact that the MAG-24 defense kept getting through the line, was that Degennaro kept getting back up off of the turf. The beating that MAG-24 dished out made HQBN lose focus and fail to execute the sound fundamentals that had got them to the semifinals. More than one time out was wasted because there weren t enough Warriors on the field. The Bone Crushers of HQ, 3rd Marine Regiment handed MAG-24 their only defeat of the regular season, and most of the Bandits said they hoped they would have a rematch with the Crushers in the championship game. Instead, MAG-24 is scheduled to play 1st Bn., 3rd Marine Regiment tonight in the first ever MCB Hawaii football league championship. BOXING, From C-1 be competing in, such as the local Golden Gloves, the U.S. National Boxing Championships, and the National Police Athletic League Tournament. About 20 members are expected to be on the team s final roster, including five females led by Sgt. Angelina Summerfield. She has been with the team since 1999 and competes in the 141-pound weight class.. Each one of us here have one thing on our mind, and that s to beat Army, said Sgt. Anthony Little. They have always been that hump we have had trouble getting over.
18 C-6 November 15, 2002 HAWAII MARINE SPORTS AROUND THE CORPS Albany celebrates Corps birthday with football Cpl. Phuong Chau Knights wide receiver Maurice Williams (right), a native of Philadelphia, Pa., cannot fight off the Vikings secondary to snag a pass for his team. Cpl. Nicholas Tremblay MCLB Albany MARINE CORPS LOGISTICS BASE ALBANY, Ga. The Marine Corps Logistics Base Systems Command Knights and the Headquarters Battalion Vikings battled it out Tuesday for the MCLB Albany eight-man Tackle Football League championship. Both teams finished regular season play with a record of seven wins and two losses. However, the Vikings dominated the game and shut out the Knights The game started with the Vikings kicking off to the Knights, who were able to get the ball down to the Vikings 20, but couldn t sneak anything past the wall of purple defenders. Things were looking up for the Knights when Teleo Laury, Knights defensive end, covered the ball after the Vikings fumbled it, but again the defense was solid. In the final minutes of the first quarter, Vikings quarterback Herbert Kennedy brought the ball close to the Knights goal line with a 25-yard run. Going into the second quarter, the score was still tied at zero. Six seconds into the quarter, the Vikings capitalized on Kennedy s run when he threw a bullet to Sheldon Watts, Vikings wide receiver, in the end zone for a touchdown. The Vikings pulled ahead with a sixpoint lead after their two-point conversion was denied. The Vikings offense was relentless and Kennedy ran the ball into the Knights end zone for a touchdown four minutes later. The Vikings two-point conversion was again no-good. Scottie Sanders, Knights linebacker, received the Vikings kickoff and fumbled the ball, but the Knights recovered the ball at the 1. The Vikings kept the pressure on the Knights offense and forced them to punt the ball when they could not get a first down. Lady Luck was on the Knights side when the Vikings fumbled the ball and Michael Donaldson, Knights offensive and defensive lineman, recovered the ball on the Vikings 17. But again the Knights felt the wrath of the strong defenders and the Vikings gained possession of the ball. With 2:24 left to go in the first half, the Vikings had a chance to increase their lead when Watts caught a 30-yard pass from Kennedy. But the Knights defense continued to fight and shut down the Vikings offensive charge. With the start of the second half, the Knights looked revived as they took the ball to the 40-yard line after the Vikings kicked-off. The Knights continued their charge and managed to get the ball to the Vikings 34. On the fourth down Alvin Payne, Vikings cornerback, intercepted a pass from Chris Frey, Knights quarterback. Kennedy threw a 40-yard bomb to Watts, who ran it into the end zone for a Vikings touchdown. With the Vikings leading 18-0 going into the fourth quarter. One minute and 33 seconds into the final quarter, the Vikings offense drove the final nail into the Knights coffin when Watts received an 11-yard pass from Kennedy for a touchdown. As the clock wound down, the Knights gave it their all to break the shut-out, but the Vikings defense just said no.
19 HAWAII MARINE November 15, 2002 C-7 Diabetes Awareness Month Low insulin, lack of exercise could cause diabetes Navy Lt. Shauna King Anderson Dept Head Health Promotion Naval Medical Clinic, Pearl Harbor Attention, Americans! Is your lifestyle putting you at risk for the 4th leading cause of death in the United States? Unfortunately, a problem with living in the land of prosperity and technology is that many Americans have become overweight and sedentary. Our fastpaced and stressful lives keep us from exercising and planning meals. Many of our jobs, although stressful, demand very little physical activity. This lifestyle is leading many Americans to the diagnosis of a serious disease called diabetes. What is diabetes? Diabetes is not a new disease. In fact, the Egyptians knew about diabetes over 3,000 years ago. Many of the Pharoahs who were eating rich diets, and mostly sedentary, were discovered to have diabetes. The cure then was to send the Pharaohs to live with peasants for a few months, whose modest diets and active lifestyles proved to be a great remedy. Today, we know a lot more about diabetes, a metabolic disease. When food is eaten, a gland called the pancreas releases insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is necessary to get the sugar or glucose from food, to the cells of the body where it can be used for energy, to keep the body working. There are two types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 comprises only about 10 percent of those with diabetes, and it usually develops in children and young adults. Type 1 is caused by a lack of insulin production. This type of diabetes cannot be predicted or prevented by lifestyle. Also, Type 1 diabetics must take injected insulin. Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes usually develops in adults who are over 40, inactive and overweight. Sadly, many overweight and inactive children are now being diagnosed with Type 2. There are other risks for Type 2 which cannot be controlled such as ethnicity and family history of diabetes. Diabetes is more common among African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Many people who are diagnosed with Type 2 are able to better control their diabetes by changing their diet, losing weight and becoming active. Sometimes - even with lifestyle improvements - pills or insulin may be needed to control the glucose or blood sugar. If left uncontrolled, both types of diabetes can lead to blindness, kidney failure, stroke, amputations, heart attack or death. It is estimated that 15 million Americans have diabetes, but only two thirds of them have been diagnosed. Could you be susceptible to getting diabetes? Are you overweight, inactive, have high triglycerides, high blood pressure or a family or gestational (pregnancy) history of diabetes? Are you noticing symptoms that could be linked to diabetes: frequent urination, increased thirst, increased hunger, fatigue and poor healing? If yes, to any of these questions, this may be a good time to set up an appointment to see your Primary Care Manager. Your PCM can support you in making lifestyle changes to lose weight and begin exercise, determine if you have diabetes and help you to get control of your glucose to prevent the long-term effects of diabetes. In short, diabetes is a disease that is affecting many Americans, but with lifestyle changes and adherence to medical advice, it can be well managed. Many people with diabetes are leading happy and healthy lives. Get the facts about diabetes. Points of Contact Talk to your Primary Care Manager (your M.D., nurse practitioner or physicians assistant) to see if you are at risk. Naval Medical Clinic, Pearl Harbor also offers a monthly nutrition and weight management class. To reserve a seat for a class at Base Medical Clinic Makalapa, call ; for BMC Kaneohe Bay, call You can also check out the American Diabetes Association online at It s your health. Take control of it.
