Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) is planning an
air show for 2015 featuring the Blue Angels, the Navys
flight demonstration squadron.
Were extremely excited to have the Blue Angels here
again, and were going to put on the best air show
Mugus ever had, said Deborah Williams, site man-
ager for community support programs at the base.
The Blue Angels will perform Saturday and Sunday,
Sept. 26 and 27, 2015.
An air show was planned this year but was canceled
due to funding issues. And since Mugu has not booked
a headliner act for 2014, there will not be an air show
next year either.
The Blue Angels announced their 2015 schedule Tues-
day, Dec. 3, along with revisions to their 2014 sched-
ule.
Two of those changes in 2014 affect Southern Cali-
fornia: The Blue Angels will performin Palmdale March
21 and 22 instead of at March Air Reserve Base. The
next day, March 23, the squadron will take part in the
Fontana Flyover.
An air showat Point Mugu dates back to 1960, when
the event was called a space fair.
The most recent air show at Mugu was held Aug. 7
and 8, 2010. It featured the Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air
Force demonstration squadron. About 100,000 people
attended the two-day event.
Air show will be

This is the last edition of The Lighthouse
and the last installment of Ask the Captain for
2013. Its been a challenging year, as we have
endured the Springs Fire, budget cuts, extended
deployments and canceled events. Our gym hours
have been scaled back, maintenance efforts have
been reduced, and for a few painful weeks this
summer, a large portion of our civilian workforce
experienced a 20 percent pay cut, furloughs and
a government shutdown.
Through it all, we have never stopped being
a Navy family. You have continued to show the
country that when the going gets tough, the Navy
family gets tougher. Active duty members, Reserv-
ists, retirees and family members even commu-
nity members concerned about the welfare of our
Sailors have asked me time and time the same
question: How can we help?
It is that level of community support, inside
and outside the fenceline, that is truly amazing.
Ive been through 13 PCS moves in my Navy
career, and Ventura County stands out as the
most supportive community. Each of you is a part
of that sense of community. We are family! Thank
you for your patience, perseverance and compas-
sion during this challenging year.
Heres wishing you a safe and joyful holiday
season and a happy New Year!
Bidding farewell to a diffcult year and welcoming 2014w

As the holiday season gets under way,
the Security Management Office is issu-
ing a reminder to all personnel regarding
Foreign Nationals (FNs) aboard Naval
Base Ventura County (NBVC).
All FNs including friends and fam-
ily of military personnel living in base
housing (designated as unofficial FN
visitors) must fill out a Foreign Na-
tional Visitor Request Form and fax or
email it to the Security Management Of-
fice at least two business days before they
want to come on base. After approval,
they will receive an orange FN badge
that must be worn at all times while on
base.
FNs staying in the Catalina Heights
military housing complex need not go
through this process unless they want to
come on base for any reason, including
shopping at the commissary or NEX or
to use recreational facilities.
Cases involving base access for official
military and civilian work-related rea-
sons are usually handled via the tenant
commands foreign national security
managers.
NBVC defines Foreign Nationals as
individuals 18 and older who are not U.S.
citizens or, regardless of citizenship, are
representing a foreign government, for-
eign corporation, other foreign entity or
an FN doing business with a Department
of Defense component or contractor.
This includes companies incorporated in
the United States but under foreign own-
ership, control or influence.
Legal permanent residents with lawful
permanent resident cards are not con-
sidered FNs.
Once on base, unofficial FNs must be
escorted at all times around the base.
They are allowed to stay alone only in-
side a base housing residence.
Around the holidays, the problems
mostly involve unofficial visits. NBVC
Security Manager Patricia David said
there are about two dozen cases late each
year of FNs trying to gain base access
without proper authorization.
The visitor request form and more in-
formation concerning the access program
can be downloaded at http://www.cnic.

About a dozen Sailors fromNaval Base
Ventura County (NBVC) volunteered to
help high school students build a 13-foot
tree out of 10,000 donated cans of food
Thursday, Dec. 5.
The next day, more Sailors helped build
about 100 shorter trees all part of an
effort to help Ventura Countys hungry.
The tree project took place at The Col-
lection at RiverPark in Oxnard. The trees
stayed up through the weekend, then were
deconstructed, with the cans going to
FOOD Share, Ventura Countys food
bank that feeds nearly 75,000 people each
month.
Thursdays construction project began
at 8:30 a.m. and ended in mid-afternoon.

(NMCRS) volunteers Liz Hoffman DeNeui,

staff an NMCRS table next to Panda Express
in the Navy Exchange food court at Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, Nov.

Tax season is right around the corner,
and the Self-Service Tax Assistance Pro-
gram needs your help.
This all-volunteer program is dedi-
cated to helping active duty service
members, military dependents and re-
tirees prepare their federal and state
income tax returns. Without volunteers,
service members and their families will
have to pay $100 or more to a tax pre-
parer.
Last year the volunteers helped tax-
payers complete more than 1,100 fed-
eral and state tax returns, yielding more
than $1.2 million in refunds.
The program is sponsored each year
by the Region Legal Service Office, De-
tachment Ventura, at Naval Base Ven-
tura County, Port Hueneme.
New volunteers are needed. All vol-
unteers will receive free training to be-
come federal and California state tax
preparers. Training is usually the first
two weeks in January.
Join the tax team today by calling Sal-
vador Gonzales at 805-982-4548.

day.
This new, consistent scheduling will re-
duce customer confusion regarding office
schedules and better use the installations

times, as determined by customer usage
from the past year.

Planning for college is a year-round
task, and the beginning of the calendar
year is a prime time to begin completing
financial aid and scholarship applica-
tions.
The Free Application for Federal Stu-
dent Aid (FAFSA) is available Jan. 1 for
the 2014-2015 school year. Even if families
have not finished their tax returns, they
can complete the FAFSA with estimated
figures and return later to update with ac-
curate information.
FAFSA is used to help determine Cal
Grant eligibility. This state grant is award-
ed to students based on income and aca-
demics. The deadline to apply is March 2,
so FAFSAand a Cal Grant GPAVerifica-
tion formmust be completed by that date.
Ahigh school counselor can help with the
verification form.
California has a new middle-income
grant for students whose families cant
qualify for Cal Grants or Pell Grants. Stu-
dents whose families earn up to $100,000
can get a break of up to 40 percent of
tuition and fees; for income between
$100,001 and $150,000, a 10 percent break.
There is limited funding, so students in
these categories should file as soon as pos-
sible after Jan. 1.
The sooner FAFSA is completed, the
sooner a college financial aid office can
begin processing the award letter and the
sooner a student can begin planning for
college finances.
In addition to financial aid, scholarships
are also available. Here are a few geared
towards local military-connected stu-
dents:
Bee Club Can DoScholarship: This
$1,000 scholarship is open to any qualified
student graduating froma Ventura Coun-
ty high school who is a dependent of any

orably discharged. Scholarships are for
four-year bachelors degrees and are not
available for part-time or graduate study.

academic goals by assisting with education
financing. Amounts and deadlines vary.
Information: www.nmcrs.org/education.
Defense Commissary Agency: Appli-
cants must submit an application and es-
say on the following question: Aside from
service member deployments, what do you
consider the greatest challenge military
families face? Please discuss why you think
this issue creates difficulties. Given the
authority, what policy changes would you
make to resolve this problem? Deadline:
Feb. 28. At least one scholarship will be
awarded at every commissary with quali-
fied applicants. Information: www.mili-
taryscholar.org.

grease. His ministerial experience be-
gan with sweeping floors at a local
motorcycle dealership, and after 40
years of turning wrenches, my dad
knew life better than many. I can re-
member so many of his sermons,
but the one that stands out most came
in the oddest delivery.
As with many mechanical-minded
types, my father wrote a list of tasks
to complete every day. He developed
this habit from a friend named Bob,
whom hed known in high school, and
hence the list was always referred to
as a Bob list.
Regardless of what he ate for break-
fast, two constants comprised his
morning routine: a Dr. Pepper and his
Bob list.
My father and I had a list of our
own when we joined in remodeling his
home in Austin, Texas. He assigned
the deed over to me, and slowly I in-
vested money into the property. Since
the house needed everything from a
roof to flooring, we targeted a 10-year
complete upgrade without headaches
or debt-building.
Sept. 29, 2012, my dad ate breakfast
and decided to take a nap. In his sleep,
he went to be with the Lord. My world
collapsed. My dad and I had arranged
to spend most of last December to-
gether. Now, my tasking involved me-
morializing my father, relocating his
roommates and preparing for a hasty
home remodel. These plans were
scheduled for the same December that
my wife and I had booked her cross-
country transit to Missouri to have
our second daughter and be with her
family during deployment.
I arrived in Texas under immense
duress to work quickly. Each day there
equaled another day away from my
wife prior to our first deployment.
While consolidating my dads per-
sonal items, I noticed hed kept his
routine to his last day. On his bedside
sat a Bob list dated the day of his
death. On it he had reminded himself
to: 1. Pick up cane from the hospital.
2. Pray, hope and dont worry.
My fathers departing words still
join me each day I keep them in
my wallet. And even though he was
unable to assist me financially in re-
modeling the house, his words calmed
my storm and enabled me to complete
the task.
I have since developed this as my
theology and approach to every prob-
lem in life. Once I pray to God, I con-
tinue to hope for the best solution,
and then I sternly commit myself to
the discipline of not worrying. This
I do out of respect to both my dad
and my Father in heaven.
Lasting words from Dad: Pray, hope and dont worry

Seven teenagers who are at a
crossroads in life recently toured
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC), spending some time
with Sailors who hope to turn the
boys lives around before its too
late.
The teens are students at Prov-
idence School, located in the Ven-
tura County Juvenile Detention
Facility in Oxnard. They are at-
tending this school while serving
out their sentences for juvenile
crimes.
Because a juvenile conviction
doesnt rule out a Navy career,
the Religious Ministries team at
NBVC has partnered with Prov-
idence, exposing a fewof the stu-
dents to Navy life and showing
them that they can choose a dif-
ferent path.
Air Traffic Controller 2ndClass
Jermaine Whitley knows all about
starting over. He told the students
about his life in New Orleans be-
fore Hurricane Katrina uprooted
his family.
Katrina was a blessing, he
told the boys during their Satur-
day, Nov. 16, tour. It washed
away all that stuff I was into.
There was no way to communi-
cate with anybody. We were evac-
uated and went to Jackson-
ville.
Shortly after he arrived, he at-
tended an uncles Navy retirement
ceremony. He remembers think-
ing, Whoa, this is kinda nice.
His uncle wasted no time. He
hooked the boy up with a Navy
recruiter, and here I am, Whit-
ley said.
He urged the boys to find some-
thing they enjoy thats positive,
something that keeps them ful-
filled and on the right track.
Take advantage of the oppor-
tunities, he urged them. If I
hadnt done that, I dont know
where Id be right now.
During a tour of the air traffic
control tower and the radar room
at NBVC Point Mugu, he talked
about the need to work hard

and the trust that comes as a result.


Theres no red light, green light in the
sky,he told them. Its our job to provide
directions to them. We are the eyes for the
pilots, especially in bad weather. Theyre
trusting us to control them.
But the job requires training a lot of
it and not all of it is exciting stuff, he
told them.
Theres a lot of reading,he explained.
The rules and regulations are changing
constantly.
Like some aspects of college, he said,
its boring but necessary,and he warned
the boys theyll find out thats true what-
ever they choose to do in life.
A garbage man needs to know what
hes doing or hes going to hurt himself or
somebody else,he explained. Youve got
to stay focused. Dont live your life with
Been there, done that, got a T-shirt.
The next stop on the tour was the Naval
Construction Training Center (NCTC) at
NBVC Port Hueneme. The boys saw the
construction mechanic classrooms, where
engines that power heavy-duty trucks and
armored vehicles are dissected and reas-
sembled.
It doesnt matter if its a plane or a boat
or a truck, you need to get to wherever
youre going, explained Construction
Mechanic 2nd Class Stephan Tierney of
the NCTC. Everyone is relying on those
engines, and theyre relying on you to keep
them running. Theyre very thankful.
Then it was on to classrooms and labs
for other Seabee rates, including equip-
ment operator, builder, steelworker, con-
struction electrician, utilitiesman and
engineering aide.
Bridges, homes, airstrips we do a
lot of unique things, explained Chief
Builder Travis Peppers.
He told the boys how Seabees make
blueprints, design buildings and sample
and analyze soils to make sure they can
hold up buildings and runways. They fig-
ure out what kind of concrete or asphalt
to use. They cut sheet metal and bend re-
bar and weld aluminum. They install the
plumbing and the heating systems. Some
even drill water wells.
Everything you do in the real world
you do as a Seabee, Peppers told them.
That includes travel.
You can go just about anywhere in the
world,he said, rattling off the places hes
been since he joined the Navy.
As Whitley had done, Peppers told
about his past and howthe Navy changed
his life.
You have a unique opportunity in life,
he told the boys, all of whom had earned
the tour because of their good behavior
and hard work at Providence. Its all
about what you can do when given that
opportunity.
Afterwards, the boys had lunch on base,
then sawthe kennels and a demonstration
by NBVCs military working dogs.
The corrections officials who accompa-
nied the boys on the tour said they hoped
it had an impact.
Corrections Services Officer Vicky Lyne
was especially impressed.
I just wish all kids could do this, she
said.

Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3s crane crew use
a 40-ton hydraulic crane to replace a 6,000-pound transformer that powers portions of
Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan.
By MC1 Chris Fahey
NMCB 3
OKINAWA, Japan Seabees from Na-
val Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3s crane crew saved taxpayers
an estimated $40,000 last month after us-
ing a mobile 40-ton hydraulic crane to
replace a 6,000-pound transformer for
Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan.
Kadenas Air Force engineers tapped the
Seabees for help after realizing they didnt
have the required capabilities to replace
the failing transformer that provided
critical power to specific areas of the
base.
The Seabees ability to quickly respond
to the request prevented Kadena officials
fromhaving to contract the job to civilian
crane operators, thereby saving taxpayers
from picking up the bill.
The five Seabees assigned to the crane
teamperformed a total of four lifts during
a 24-hour operating window Thursday,
Nov. 21.
My team is the best of the best, said
Equipment Operator 1st Class Manuel
Figueroa, NMCB3 crane crewsupervisor.
Weve trained to a point where weve set
a new benchmark in our ability to safely
conduct heavy lifts. This capability has
made us a sought-after asset to the local
units here in Okinawa, and we are more
than happy to lend a hand.
The teams mobile hydraulic crane has
a total lift capacity of 80,000 pounds and
can be driven nearly anywhere throughout
Okinawa.
According to Figueroa, his crews per-
formance relies heavily on Seabee patience
and meticulous nature.
You cant rush a heavy lift, he said.
Every inch of the move is dangerous. Our
attention to detail and patience keeps us
frommaking mistakes. When you are mov-
ing thousands of pounds, even the small-
est mistake could result in either severe
injury or massive damage.

U.S. Pacific Fleet Master Chief Marco Ramirez answers questions while addressing
Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3 during a visit to Camp
Shields Wednesday, Nov. 20.
By MC1 Chris Fahey
NMCB 3
OKINAWA, Japan U.S. Pacific Fleet
Master Chief Marco Ramirez met with
Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 3 Wednesday, Nov. 20,
during a visit to Camp Shields.
Ramirez, the 16th fleet master chief for
U.S. Pacific Fleet, answered questions
while addressing NMCB3 Seabees to help
share Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet
Adm. Harry B. Harris vision, guiding
principles and strategic imperatives.
When you think of the Seabees, you
automatically think of the Pacific, said
Ramirez. People see the Seabees, and they
bow to them. Seabees visit so many dif-
ferent countries and build friendships with
so many different nations. These friend-
ships are so important. They enhance our
ability to stay in the Pacific. When these
nations think back, they dont remember
the ships that passed through. They re-
member that Seabees came and built a
school, a community center, a typhoon
shelter or got the water going. So, when
they think of the Seabees, they also think
of the United States of America, the
U.S. Navy and that Seabees Can Do. It
instills our presence to remain here as
friends and allies.
NMCB 3s main body is deployed to
Okinawa but has nine other details per-
forming critical construction projects in
remote island areas such as Timor-Leste,
Tonga, Cambodia and the Philippines.
The team is also conducting operations
in Atsugi and Yokosuka, Japan; Chinhae,
Republic of Korea; and China Lake.
Before leaving, Ramirez thanked the
Seabees for their hard work, dedication
and legendary work ethic that has con-
tributed to the stability and security of
the Pacific Region for more than 70
years.
My boss, Adm. Harris, always says,
People need to be able to fight tonight,
said Ramirez. There is no doubt in my
mind that if called upon, the Seabees are
more than ready to fight tonight.

Dogs certainly, and perhaps a cat or
two, but when he agreed to serve as
Santa for the Navy Exchange Pets with
Santa event Wednesday, Dec. 4, Robert
Howe never thought hed end up with a
lizard let alone one whispering in his
ear.
It was humming, he said as he hand-
ed the bearded dragon named Frankie
back to its owner, 10-year-old Luis Fer-
nando Alvarez.
Luis is the son of Sonia Alvarez, the
human resources manager of the NEX
at Naval Base Ventura County, Port
Hueneme. Hed brought Frankie to the
Halloween pet costume contest hosted
by the NEX Oct. 26 he dressed the
lizard in a Superman cape and things
had gone so well he figured hed try this
event too.
Frankie was one of 25 animals that
posed for a photo with Santa during the
eighth annual Pets with Santa event.
Calvin, a 7-year-old Yorkshire terrier,
arrived early with his owners, Linda and
Patrick Sammon. Linda described Cal-
vin as her service dog: He barks and goes
after help when her health issues flare
up.
He has a big-dog spirit in a little dogs
body, she said.
On the other end of the size spectrum
was Bruce, an American Bulldog owned
by Steelworker 3rd Class Keaton Jenkins
of Naval Mobile Construction Battal-
ion 5 and his wife, Alyssa, a supervi-
sory sales clerk at the NEX. Bruce
came last year as well, but he was only
6 months old then and a lot small-
er.
Also making a return trip was
Snoopy, a Chihuahua Toy Fox terrier
that came dressed as Santa. Aviation
Support Equipment Technician 1st
Class Alejandro Nunez of Fleet Read-
iness Center Southwest, Detachment
Point Mugu, and his wife, Christina,
brought the dog back after everyone
enjoyed last years photo shoot.
This is one of our funnest events,
said Ramiro Victoria, the Hardlines
Division manager at the NEX. It
marks the first Santa Claus sighting
of the year on base, and it allows ev-
eryone the opportunity to get a photo
of their pet with Santa.

With the winter holidays coming up, many
employees at Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) will be away from the workplace for
three or more days at a stretch.
The NBVC Energy Team reminds all who
work on base to be aware of their workplace
energy footprint and to do what they can to
reduce energy waste and costs to the Navy
while they are away. This is especially impor-
tant during these days of budget shortfalls.
Did you know that there are an estimated
10,000-plus computers at NBVC that, if left
on 24/7, cost the Navy more than $750,000 in
electricity annually? If everyone shuts down
their computer at the end of each workday,
over weekends and during holidays, the elec-
tricity cost could be cut by 66 percent, saving
the Navy and the taxpayer nearly $500,000
per year.
Please take the following actions before leav-
ing on your last day before a holiday week-
end:
Turn off NMCI computers, monitors,
speakers, printers, etc. within your worksta-
tion, and turn off the power strip too.
Turn off all personal devices (fans, radios,
etc.).
Coordinate a shutdown of all workgroup
printers, photocopiers and other common area
office equipment prior to vacating the work-
place.
Shut down all shop equipment.
Turn off all kitchen and break room equip-
ment (coffee makers, toasters, etc.).
Turn off all lights.
Shut down all heating, cooling and venti-
lation systems.
Lets keep our workplace operating effi-
ciently! We are the ones who make it hap-
pen!

OKINAWA, Japan Twenty Seabees from
Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
(NMCB) 3 joined Sailors assigned to Com-
mander, Fleet Activities Okinawa (CFAO) and
the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force
(JMSDF) in creating hundreds of tradition-
al Mochi rice balls for children from the
nearby Kanasa Nursery School Wednesday,
Dec. 4.
The third annual Mochi ball throwdown
served as an opportunity for the two naval
forces to herald in the holiday season while
also giving back to members of the local com-
munity.
Being away from family is always hard,
especially when the holiday months come
knocking, said Equipment Operator 1st Class
Pete Izarra, a volunteer from NMCB 3.
Meeting other Navy types from the area, our
Japanese counterparts and having a great day
with the kids was a great way to spend a
sunny day. Okinawa is an incredibly good-
natured place, and it was awesome doing
something meaningful for the community.
The volunteers all spent the day smashing
specially prepared Mochi rice in large stone
and wood muddling pots. Once flattened into
a paste, the batches were placed on a flowered
table, where volunteers joined the children in
hand-carving fist-sized balls. The balls were
then filled with a sweet bean paste, dipped in
a special broth, then caked in a brown season-
ing.
They were so good! said Equipment Op-
erator 1st Class Manny Figueroa, another
volunteer from NMCB 3. It reminded me
of some of the special desserts we make at
my house during the holidays.
When finished, the volunteers capped the
day by performing a contemporary dance with
the nursery school children. When the music
stopped, the children all turned to the volun-
teers in unison, bowed and thanked them in
Japanese.
I cant think of a more unique way of kick-
ing off the holiday season than sharing this
experience with our friends in the JMSDF
and the Seabees, said CFAO Commander
Navy Capt. Michael Michel. This was truly
a great day.

CSFE Public Affairs
The American Council on Education
(ACE) evaluation is one of several pro-
grams managed by the Center for Seabees
and Facilities Engineering (CSFE) that
promote Seabee experience and education
beyond the Navy.
While Navy Credentialing Opportuni-
ties Online (COOL) identifies industry
certifications and qualifications that Sea-
bees may apply for, ACE reviews formal
Navy course curriculum and compares it
to what is taught in vocational schools,
colleges and universities across the Unit-
ed States. The findings lead to recom-
mended college course credits for Seabees
as they pursue higher education degrees.
In addition, Seabees are eligible for college
credit equivalencies based upon their
level of experience.
Earlier this year, 12 formal Navy train-
ing courses for Seabees were reviewed by
ACE at the Naval Construction Training
Center (NCTC), located at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme.
The recent validation of these courses
as solid, post-secondary curriculumspeaks
to the tremendous quality of instruction
offered through the Navys training com-
mands, said Capt. Daniel Cook, NCTC
commanding officer. We are proud to
provide this high level of training which
serves our students in degree completion
programs and reinforces the confidence
that we have in the skills that our Sailors
and Airmen will ultimately use in service
to the fleet.
Since World War II, ACE has worked
to recognize the educational value of
military training and experience by con-
tinuously evaluating military schools, cor-
respondence courses and occupations to
determine the amount and level of aca-
demic credit each should be awarded.
Through ACE, Seabees can receive
academic credit for work experience and
on-the-job training, as well as formal Navy
training.
The ACE military evaluations program
is funded by the Department of Defense
and coordinated through the Defense Ac-
tivity for Non-Traditional Education Sup-
port.
It is a great feeling to know that Sea-
bees attending training courses developed
at CSFE will receive college-level credit
along with the education and skills they
acquire, said Master Chief Joe Maiori-
ello, Senior Learning Program manager
at the CSFE. Off-duty education is great,
and I encourage it for service members.
However, the opportunity to attend college
while assigned to a deployable NCF unit
is sometimes very difficult. The courses
our NCTCs and detachments deliver are
not designed to be easy, nor be seen as a
readiness check in the block for unit com-
manders, they are designed to challenge
each student to excel while they hone a
particular skill within their rating.
It is a great feeling to know that our
students are receiving the applicable col-
lege-level credit for their continued profes-
sional education. This puts each Seabee
one step closer to achieving a college de-
gree which will benefit them both in and
out of the Navy, he added.
Forty-seven courses for all seven Seabee
ratings were evaluated, resulting in the
following course credit equivalents: 12
vocational education credits, 313 lower
division college credits and 26 upper divi-
sion college credits.
In addition to credit recommendations
for formal Navy courses, Seabees are eli-
gible for college course credit equivalencies
based upon on-the-job training and work
experience. The Seabee Rating reviewcon-
ducted at CSFE in 2011 resulted in 680
lower division and 149 upper division col-
lege credit recommendations.
Considering the current environment
both in and outside the Navy, getting a
college degree can be one of the best
moves a Sailor can make to be competi-
tive, said Roland Perez, institutional ac-
creditation manager for the Naval Educa-
tion and Training Command. Getting a
degree can be expensive and time consum-
ing, but using their Sailor/Marine Amer-
ican Council on Education Registry Tran-
script (SMART) and ACEcredits can give
Sailors a big head start toward a de-
gree.
To take advantage of ACErecommend-
ed credits for their specific ratings, Seabees
should visit their nearest Navy College
office or educational service officer to re-
viewtheir SMARTtranscript and develop
an education plan.

credits toward a college degree, visit the
Navy College website at https://www.na-
vycollege.navy.mil/.

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
There was a time when things were more
predictable. There were no dropped calls,
banks were lending and shore duty was
just that shore duty.
Well, a lot of things have changed in the
last few years. Now, regardless of being
assigned to a sea or shore command, its
reasonable to assume you could deploy,
either as an Individual Augmentee (IA)
or with your command. So the real ques-
tion is, when and for how long?
We can all agree that we should be as
well-prepared as possible for deployment.
Done properly, deployment preparedness
will not only enhance your remaining time
with your family and friends, but more
importantly, it will emotionally, finan-
cially and professionally prepare you and
your family for eventual separation.
To start with, if youre fortunate enough
to have family close by, truly enjoy the
time you have together. Stay cost-con-
science, do things together as a family and
get the kids involved. It could be as simple
as renting a great movie and making pop-
corn the old-fashioned way. Or pack up a
couple of sandwiches and soft drinks and
go to the beach or to some local hiking
trails. Sometimes its as simple as turning
off the TVand having a meal together and
actually talking with your loved ones.
If this is your first deployment, or your
first as a newlywed, there is a lot you can
and should discuss. Its not uncommon
for families to steer away from the subject
of deployment; the thought of separation
makes everyone feel uncomfortable. But
many times its the lack of effective com-
munication that eventually leads to in-
creased stress and frustration. You can
approach the topic head-on, or, if the con-
versation feels awkward or forced, transi-
tion from sports, weather or some com-
mon connection into the more sensitive
issues. Either way, you will have a much
easier time sorting out the emotions when
deployment comes to fruition.
If you are single or a geographic bach-
elor or bachelorette, maximize the use of
your homeport time. Get off base. Go out
and enjoy the many sights and events that
are happening throughout Ventura Coun-
ty. The Fleet & Family Support Center
and Morale, Welfare and Recreation have
great information about the wide variety
of things to do in the area. Take advantage
of discounts at the Information, Tickets
and Travel (ITT) office. Stay in touch with
family and friends, and keep them up-
dated on your schedule. Another good use
of time is to get involved with the Navy
College Learning Center and enhance
your education.
Keep in mind one thing: Time is relative;
its all about how you use it.
If you want help preparing for deploy-
ment, contact Brittany Barton at Brittany.
barton.ctr@navy.mil or call 805-982-3726
and Ill be happy to assist.
To all the service men and women and
their families at Naval Base Ventura Coun-
ty: Thank you for your service, and happy
holidays!

coordinator for the Naval Base Ventura

those who serve our country,
Saltee said as Vasquez poured
gravy onto a pile of mashed po-
tatoes and turkey. We wouldnt
be here if it wasnt for the men
and women who fight for our
country. We need to give thanks
for our forces who are keeping
the peace.
The Rescue Mission was pre-
pared to serve 950 meals. Vol-
unteers had spent nearly a week
cooking 579 turkeys, 1,250
pounds of potatoes, 200 gallons
of gravy and 120 pies, pumpkin
and apple.
As Vasquez and Trent filled
plates with food along with
Lt. Cmdr. Jeffrey Han, com-
mand chaplain, and Lt. Cmdr.
Anthony Kucia of the Naval
Branch Health Clinic other
Navy volunteers carried the
meals to tables. Among them
were four Sailors who had just
come in fromSan Nicolas Island
and decided to volunteer a few
hours before taking their leave.
Boatswains Mate 1st Class
Perfecta Valle organized the ef-
fort and drew in Culinary Spe-
cialist 2nd Class Juan Sanchez,
Aviation Boatswains Mate Air-
craft Handling 2nd Class Carlos
Tejashun and Aviation Boat-
swains Mate Launch & Recov-
er Equipment 2nd Class Alfon-
so Chacon.
I really wanted to do this,
Valle said. I like helping people
in need people who need this
more than I do.
She was planning to drive to
San Bernardino right after the
event to spend time with her
parents and the rest of her fam-
ily.
Several volunteers also came
from Naval Mobile Construc-
tion Battalion 28, a Reserve unit
that is currently deployed. Eight
of the homeport group came,
and two brought their spous-
es.
Im very happy today, said
Senior Chief Yeoman Randy
Bibeau, whos from Minnesota.
Its great to support the local
community.
Chief Yeoman Barbara Wood
came with her husband, retired
Air Force Master Sgt. David
Rathbone. Wherever they hap-
pen to be Virginia, Maine,
Mississippi, Southern Califor-
nia they volunteer during the
holidays.
Life has been good to us,
Rathbone said, and every year
weve made the decision to go
help other people.
Suzanne West, who coordi-
nates volunteers for the Rescue
Mission, said Wednesdays ef-
forts showed just a small part
of what the Navy does to help
the organization.
Navy volunteers help serve
meals at the Rescue Mission all
year long, she said, and Reli-
gious Ministries collects clothes
and other items for those in
need.
They really support what we
do here, she said.

Nearly 30 students fromthe Architecture,
ConstructionandEngineering(ACE) Char-
ter School in Camarillo had designed the
tree under the direction of their instructor,
Gary Clifford.
Sailors handed cans to the teenagers, of-
fered safety tips and helped assemble the
upper levels.
Being here shows were willing to help
the community,said Construction Electri-
cian 1st Class Michael Brown of NBVCs
Public Works. These kids are getting a lot
of on-the-jobtraining. Theyre starting with
the basics. And we always want to give a
helping hand.
Clifford said he appreciated the Navys
involvement.
This is great,he said. Not onlyare they
helping out, but theres some mentorship
with the students as well. Theyre able to
talk with the kids, and thats wonderful.
The students began the morning by as-
sembling the base of the tree, whichis 8 feet
in diameter, and inserting shims to make it
level withthe street. They laiddownthe first
plywood base, secured it with screws, then
coveredit withcans. The next plywoodbase,
smaller in diameter, went on top of those
cans and on it went, right up to the top
of the tree.
Builder 1st Class Daniel Peat of Naval
Construction Group 1 was fascinated with
the project.
This is interesting,he saidas he watched
the tree take shape. I didnt know what to
expect when they said they needed volun-
teers to help build a tree out of 10,000 cans.
Its going to look pretty nice when its
done.
That it did.
Shortly before 2 p.m., ACE junior Me-
lissa Mayen, 16, stretchedout froma boom
lift and inserted the top decoration. There
towatchwas her sister, JessicaMonje, whose
husbandis Air Force TechSgt. StevenMon-
je with the 344th Training Squadron, De-
tachment 1, Vehicle Management Technical
School at NBVC Port Hueneme.
I love watching teenagers work this
hard,Monje had said earlier in the day, as
the students were scurrying around, passing
cans of food and drilling screws into ply-
wood. Its hardtoget kids todothings like
this. I love it.

Around 11:30 a.m., BU1 Daniel Peat of Naval Construction Group 1 makes it easier for
student Angela Beralleza to fill in a middle layer of the tree.
