2 2 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Annual wargame encourages dialogue and understanding By Virginia Beaton Trident staff The Canadian Forces Maritime Warfare Centre (CFMWC) hosted the Hexalateral War Game from September 8 to 12, Approximately 31 personnel from the Canadian, American, Argentinian, Chilean, Brazilian and Peruvian navies participated in the five-daylong table top maritime war game. What we do here is a table top exercise at the strategic and operational level, stated LCdr Pete Cassidy, OIC of wargaming and education at the CFMWC. It s an initiative where we have the opportunity to discuss procedures at both the operational and strategic level with South American countries and ourselves, in order to get greater understanding and cooperation. This year, Canada hosted the wargame for the first time since The hexalateral wargame helps the participants to establish rapport and contact networks for the future, according to LCdr Cassidy. In the 2008 wargame scenario, We ve taken a fictional group of countries which are very similar to the east coast of Canada, but they re somewhere out in the Pacific. Current events factor into the wargame but we change the names to protect the innocent. We go through some Left-Right: Front row: Capt(N) Rick Jean, Capt Rafael Silva, Capt Waldemar Sanguinetti, Capt Piero Fagandini, Capt Antonio Carlos de Araujo, Capt Dan MacKeigan, Capt Robert Luman. 2nd Row: Cdr Chris Peschke, Cdr Alan Kardec Mota, LCol Louis MacKay, Mr. Gino Arciniega, LCdr Tremblay, Cdr Jorge Hagedorn, Cdr Paulo Edvandroda Costa Pinto. 3rd Row: LCdr Johnny Hayes, LCdr Marcelo Pereira da Costa, Cdr G.L. Reddy, Ms Julie Breau, Dr. Ken Eyre, Capt Jose Giaquinta Lt José Otiniano. 4th Row: Capt Attila Halan Coury, Cdr German Arbizu, Cdr Francisco Figueroa, Mr. Murilo Fernandes Gabrielli, Cdr Alberto Pinhero de Carvalho, Lt(N) Willian Strecker, Lcdr Peter Rodnite, Cdr Enrique Arnaez, LCdr Balbo Omar, Cdr Jean-Raymond Guillmette, Cdr Roberto Peralta, Ministro Marsico Osvaldo, Capt (Rtd) Enrique Alvayay. things in the world that you might see on the front page, and we see how each country would address the problem, but we re working as a coalition of nations. The Pearson Peacekeeping Centre was a major contributor to the event, having created the scenario, LCdr Cassidy stated. Using the east coast of Canada as the backdrop and drawing on contemporary events for realism, They created something we could approach as a coalition. So you might have events like piracy issues, or smuggling issues, drug interdiction operations or humanitarian assistance. Typically the head of each delegation is a Capt(N), supported by a foreign affairs representative and a military lawyer. During the game, these three personnel play the military/political level of the higher authorities while additional staff officers and another military lawyer represent the operational level multinational task force. Dialogue among the various navies and their diplomats is encouraged, so that everyone learns how each country would operate within PTE JOHANIE MAHEU, FORMATION IMAGING SERVICES HALIFAX the group, stated LCdr Cassidy. We introduce a series of moves or vignettes, scenarios to introduce people at both the strategic and operational level so they can treat the problem in a commonsense fashion. As well, with the South American allies, We introduce them to the NATO format of operations, like a coalition. So in future operations, these personnel will already have some familiarity with those concepts. So in the long run, it s a sharing and exchange of ideas. The wargame is a valuable chance for Canadian Navy personnel to interact with other navies, especially those from South America, according to LCdr Cassidy. It is more opportune for us now than ever, in order to continue to build the bridges and rapport with the various countries because they have a lot to offer, not only in the military and diplomatic sense but also in the trade sense. Capt(N) (retd) Dave Sweeney, retired commandant of the CFMWC, noted the wargames are great for team building and to sort out a lot of local issues as well. Participation by some of the junior officers will be helpful in their future careers, he believes. When they become more senior, they have contacts in South America and the United States and it makes it much easier to achieve big things later on. (902) The Team Friends Recommend!

3 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, Montréal participates in drug seizure off Puerto Rico By Virginia Beaton Trident staff During a deployment to the Caribbean in August, HMCS Montréal contributed to the seizure of more than 4.3 metric tons of cocaine. A coastal freighter registered in Panama was carrying the cocaine when it was intercepted by a Dutch navy ship and a US Coast Guard (USCG) law enforcement detachment 100 nautical miles south of Puerto Rico. Montréal had left Halifax on July 28 for Op CARIBBE to support Joint Inter-Agency Task Force South (JIATF South), a military headquarters of US Southern Command, stated Cdr Jeffery Zwick, Montréal s commanding officer. JIATF South conducts surveillance and tracking operations that seek to counter illegal activity in the Caribbean, primarily focussing on drug trafficking. On August 7, while Montréal was providing maritime surveillance operations, it located a target of interest the Panama-flagged freighter. There was intelligence that the vessel, then in the vicinity of Punto Fijo, Venezuela, would be loading several thousand kilograms of cocaine before sailing to Europe. On August 11, Montréal was tasked to conduct overt patrols in search of northbound targets of interest, north of Venezuela. Further intelligence indicated the suspect freighter would sail from Punto Fijo on August 14, and on the morning of August 15, Montréal gained initial detection of the vessel, identified it, and passed it over to JIATFS. They in turn passed the role of interdicting the vessel over to a Dutch destroyer, HNLMS Van Speijk, stated Cdr Zwick. They had a US Coast Guard law enforcement detachment embarked, which then did the investigation and the search of the vessel [on August 18 to 19]. After a detailed search, the United States Coast Guard detachment members eventually located a false bulkhead in the engine room and upon investigation found an area containing dozens of bales of a substance that proved to be cocaine. Cdr Zwick estimated that it had a street value of about $310 million US dollars. This significant interdiction of cocaine smuggling in collaboration with our allies, said RAdm Paul Maddison, Commander Joint Task Force Atlantic, clearly demonstrates the value of the navy, forward-deployed and defeating the threat before it comes ashore, and therefore saving Canadian lives. Maritime Security Challenges Conference brings military and civilian maritime leaders together By Mary Ellen Green Lookout Newspaper Maritime Forces Pacific and the Office of the Asia-Pacific Policy Advisor invited maritime leaders from across the world to attend the third biennial Maritime Security Challenges Conference this week. Maritime Security Challenges 08: Building the Navies of the Future, ran from September 16 to 18 at the Victoria Conference Centre. More than 150 participants from 15 nations discussed and shared opinions and solutions to some of the security challenges facing the maritime community today. There is unprecedented naval activity in the Asia-Pacific region, said Dr. James Boutilier, Asia-Pacific Policy Advisor to the Commander, Maritime Forces Pacific. In the past, he stated, the Atlantic Ocean was the centre of naval and maritime activity, but in recent years the centre of naval gravity has shifted from the Atlantic into the Pacific Ocean. The conference brought together civilian industry leaders with military officials to focus on maritime security challenges of nations bordering the Pacific Ocean, or operating ships in the area. Dr. Boutilier said this was a great opportunity for Canadian officials to discuss maritime issues with leaders from shipbuilding, commercial shipping, port authorities, and coast guards to give naval leaders perspective from outside the military world. We need people from industry present because there is no use in a bunch of naval officers talking amongst themselves. There aren t many opportunities for senior bureaucrats and civilians to network with senior officials from around the world, said Dr. Boutilier. This year s conference offered a series of breakout sessions, with a panel of experts discussing topics such as Asian submarine programs and the Arctic, a keynote address from Rear Admiral Tyrone Pile, Commander Maritime Forces Pacific, and two luncheon guest speakers. During luncheon addresses Dr. Daniel Rosen from the Rhodium Group, a New York-based economic research and analysis partnership with associates in Shanghai and New Delhi, were scheduled to speak about China s growing energy needs on Thursday. The Wednesday address was by Professor Geoffrey Till from the United Kingdom Defence Academy, who Dr. Boutilier described as the world authority on sea power. He will speak about the steady numbers decline in main-line western navies. For more information check the website:

5 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, CPL VEUILLETTE On August 19, 2008, Ville de Québec entered the port of Mombasa, Kenya for the first time. HMCS Ville de Québec hosts INS Godavari in Kenya By Lt(N) Chris Gabriel HMCS Ville de Québec One hundred nautical miles off the coast of Africa, HMCS Ville de Québec proceeded south towards Mombasa and, prepared to pick up its first World Food Programme escort. With all sensors finely tuned, the 5000-ton frigate picked up the radars of an Indian ship. We can only assume they were doing the same. So began the all too familiar game of who can determine the other s identity first. On August 19, 2008, Ville de Québec entered the port of Mombasa, Kenya for the first time and, much to our surprise, our berth was just down from INS Godavari along the same jetty. As the Above Water Warfare Officer, for me the surprise was twofold. First, we had been tracking the Indian ship and figured that it was going to Mombasa, however, our assessment was of a different ship, not INS Godavari. Second, this was not only the Godavari class, but the namesake ship itself. This was a sight not often seen by other Canadian warships. Once alongside Mombasa, the Commanding Officer (CO) of Ville de Québec, Cdr Chris Dickinson and the Ville de Québec officers hosted the CO of the Godavari, Capt(N) R. Sarin, and his officers on board for a buffet reception in the Wardroom. As both Canadian and Indian navies are based on British naval tradition, there were many similarities on how both navies conducted themselves operationally and symbolically. Overall, we truly enjoyed one another s company as we shared stories and laughed together. On August 20, 2008, Ville de Québec departed Mombasa with her first escort duty, but once more had the opportunity to bid fair winds and following seas to our new friends with a sail past. INS Godavari is on a three-month patrol off the East coast of Africa with sister ships INS Delhi and Talwar. Fire Prevention Week 2008: Prevent Home Fires Sgt Gary Ridgewell Chief Fire Inspector It was a balmy evening in Chicago on October 8, Daniel (Pegleg) Sullivan was sitting outside his house enjoying the unusually warm weather when his contentment was suddenly shattered by the sight of flames coming from the inside of Patrick and Catherine O Leary s barn, across the street. Daniel rushed to the barn to help but the fire was already too far advanced and not much could be saved. The fire, aided by a strong wind, spread at lightning speed through the predominantly wooden structures of greater Chicago. By the following day, when the fire was finally brought under control by the use of explosives, much of Chicago had been devastated. At least 300 people had perished and some 18,000 buildings were destroyed. Almost one third of Chicago s population of 300,000 was left homeless. Understandably, the cause of the fire became the focus of much speculation. The popular theory revolved around Mrs. O Leary s much maligned cow, which was thought to have kicked over a lamp and set the barn on fire. Ironically, the O Leary house survived the disaster with only minor damage. Thereafter, annually, on October 9, the people of Chicago commemorate the fire with parades and ceremonies. In 1911, The Fire Marshals Association of North America officially declared that date as Fire Prevention Day. Ontario became the first jurisdiction to observe Fire Prevention Week during the Sunday through Saturday period which October 9 falls. Accordingly, the 12 Wing Fire Department is pleased to announce the theme for the 2008 Fire Prevention Week: Prevent Home Fires, in an effort to help save lives in our community as well as preserve the property of our friends and family. Fire Prevention week will take place October 5 to 11 with various activities scheduled, including a children s Fun Day on Sunday, October 5 with the return of the Junior Fire Fighter Combat Challenge and BBQ, as well as the official reading of the Fire Prevention Week Proclamation by the Wing Commander on October 6. Join us in celebrating this year s event by educating yourself and your loved ones in the prevention of home fires and the actions to take in the event that a fire disrupts your home. For more information regarding Fire Prevention Week or any Fire and Life Safety matter, contact the Shearwater Fire Prevention Office at Consider the following: A hostile fire occurs approximately every eight minutes in Canada. Fire departments answer more than 67,000 fire calls annually in Canada. More than 39,000 fires occur in structures (about 26,000 in residences). More than 18,000 fires occur in vehicles and approximately 5,500 in outdoor properties. A fire death, on average, occurs every 20 hours in Canada and about 80 per cent of all Canadian fire deaths occur in home fires. A fire injury occurs, on average, every two hours in Canada. Approximately 4,200 fire injuries are reported annually in Canada. In addition, hospitals see many burn victims scalded or burned by cooking appliances or food that are not recorded as burn victims of fire. Approximately 70 per cent of fire injuries occur in residential settings. Limited Time Bonus!

6 6 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Navy gets new backpack By Darlene Blakeley Navy Public Affairs, Ottawa You can now carry the Navy on your back. CANEX has introduced a new Navy backpack which is now available on both coasts and can be special-ordered from any CANEX in Canada. JACEK SZYMANSKI Stadacona Post Office adds new drop box By Virginia Beaton Trident staff Dropping off mail after hours on Stadacona just got easier. The Stadacona Post Office, located in building S-21 near the Gottingen Street gate, has installed a new mail drop box on the wall in the hallway just outside the office. This new feature allows customers, ranging from living-in personnel to any military or civilian employees on the base, to drop off their mail at any time that is convenient for them. This increased access will provide better customer service, according to MCpl Burgess, second in command at the office. We used to have a drop box inside the post office and people could only leave their mail during working hours. The Stadacona Post Office currently is undergoing renovations and the new Canada Post drop box is among the recent changes and improvements. The post office serves the base and also living-in personnel and MCpl Burgess emphasized it is a Canada Post outlet offering a variety of postal products and services. We sell stamps, we have all the Express Post services. People drop off letters, parcels, everything. The Stadacona Post Office is open from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. We re open right through the lunch hour, stated MCpl Burgess. It retails for $ The backpack is black and has a small Navy logo at the top. It has reflective piping, a built-in laptop carrier and several pockets. It retails for $ Maritime Command CPO1 Bob Cleroux, who spearheaded the campaign to get the new backpack, says it makes it easier for sailors to ensure they have a backpack that meets the Navy s criteria for wearing these items while in uniform. Sailors can still wear any brand of backpack as long as they are plain, dark in colour, and complementary to the uniform, said CPO1 Cleroux. But this one gives them the chance to show the Navy s colours. Lt(N) Phillip Henry checks out the new Navy backpack.

7 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, Neighbours helping neighbours By Mike Bonin BPAO Summertime is always a good time for fun and a festival. The Ward Five Neighborhood Centre on Russell Street in Halifax closed off the street and had a fair last week. There were fire trucks, bouncy rides, a fishpond, games, musical chairs, hot dogs, beverages and a huge cake. What looked out of place to a certain extent were the uniformed CF members from the base giving freely of their time to support the event. One person in particular, Lt(N) Carrie Topping spent the entire afternoon cooking hot dogs for children, seniors and any passerby who happened upon the festival. For me, this is a great opportunity to help the community that is just outside our gates, stated Lt(N) Topping. The Ward 5 Centre is one of the United Way funded agencies and is a GCWCC partner, so it was a natural fit. Other DND/ CF helpers were Lt(N) Jennifer McGean, CPO1 Ian Ronaldson, LS Steve Michaud and I, all from Base Commander s Secretariat. During the afternoon, the Base Commander made his rounds to chat with adults, youth and the many city officials who were on hand to enjoy one of the last days of summer. As the festivities unfolded, Capt(N) Newton observed there was a real sense of community spirit and pride. Events such as these are a great occasion to show that we recognize our neighbors and communicate that we seek to participate in community Jose Castindiras chats with Capt(N) Newton at the Ward 5 Community fair. building with them said Capt(N) Newton. There is an internal DND message also in this kind of participation it allows our people to see firsthand that there are many and varied charitable activities that play an essential role in creating a healthy society right here in Canada, in Halifax, and in our immediate neighborhood in particular The Ward Five Neighborhood Centre is a critical component of a safe community in the North End. Established in 1971 in response to public concern over the need for youth activities, 45 per cent of its resources are devoted to youth including breakfast and lunch programmes, after-school arts, crafts and fitness activities, and summer camps. At the other end of the spectrum there are seniors programmes, socials and meals on wheels, for instance, demanding approximately 15 per cent of its resources. A very successful and critical food bank at St Mark s Church is part of the centre s core activities. It is all accomplished on a tightly managed $300,000 annual operating budget provided through donations, grants, fund raising and a substantial $50,000 grant from the United Way. JTFA s Government of Canada Charitable Workplace Campaign helps to support more than 130 programmes at 55 locally registered charitable organizations through the United Way of Halifax Region and 16 health-related charities through Healthpartners. The Ward 5 Neighborhood Centre is but one of the 55 locally sponsored United Way charitable endeavours where even a small payroll deduction of a few dollars a month would make a huge difference to the lives of those who are less fortunate than us. Go North event showcases the arts in north end Halifax By Virginia Beaton Trident staff The Maritime Command Museum was one of the stops on the recent Go North event. This annual festival is a celebration of the thriving arts and cultural community in the north end of the city.

8 8 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 CPL ROD DOUCET, FORMATION IMAGING SERVICES HALIFAX HMCS Iroquois departing from CFB Halifax. Tracking HMCS Iroquois for 20 years By Wayne Brown Editor s note: Wayne Brown is now retired from teaching at Iroquois Public School in Scarborough, Ontario. In 1988 when I first arrived at Scarborough, Ontario s Iroquois Jr. P.S., I thought that I had a great opportunity to give my students real writing experiences by having them write to the crew of HMCS Iroquois. Little did I realize what the next 20 years would produce. Iroquois was just entering its TRUMP. I figured that I would simply bide my time Pour voter, vous devez : être citoyen canadien; être âgé d au moins 18 ans le jour de l élection; prouver votre identité et votre adresse. until it was finished, but along came the first Gulf War. My students sent letters to HMC Ships Athabaskan, Terra Nova and Protecteur. They were thrilled when they received their replies. In 1992, we were celebrating our Canada 125 and Lt(N) Bloom stopped by our school Le mardi 14 octobre, on vote. and gave us a print of Iroquois. Staff and students alike were overjoyed by his visit and the print, which has hung in my classroom since then. My students then started to write to the ship during its deployments.

In 1998, Toronto was diverted from the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf. My students took this opportunity to write to it as well as to Iroquois. The following fall, Toronto made a port visit to Toronto and my students were invited for a tour and lunch. LS Jim Lane presented us with a teddy bear that he had taken to the Gulf with him. We named him Journeyin Jim and he has continued to travel, visiting numerous countries on six continents with students, staff, and friends; he has also been involved in two deployments with his home ship, Toronto. During Toronto s Great Lakes Regional Deployment, I was invited to join its then captain, Cdr S.R. Moors, for lunch during the ship s visit to its namesake city of Toronto. Little did I realize the honour Cdr Moors would bestow upon me for the years of letters to our military and veterans. He presented me with Toronto s first Bravo Zulu award. I gratefully accepted the award and greatly appreciated the recognition given. I recognize that this would not have been possible without the efforts, support and enthusiasm of my students. A bonus of the letters sent by these students has been school visits by officers and crew of both Iroquois and Toronto as well as a commanding officer from each of them. Several of these visits have coincided with our school s Remembrance Day programmes and that made our services much more meaningful. The reason that I am writing this is that I am retiring at the end of this school year. I want to thank all of the members of our Navy for the service that they render to our country and particularly for all that they have done for my students. Those letters and visits were a very exciting part of their education and something that they have talked about years after they were in my class. I thank all of them and wish them well.

9 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, On duty but far from the sea By Lt(N) Alain Blondin Media Operations Officer, Kandahar eached sailors is one B way to describe all the would-be salty dogs currently serving on OPATHENA. There are approximately 60 members of Task Force Kandahar who normally wear the dark blues. Although many are in purple occupations, the majority still proudly identify themselves as sailors aboard Her Majesty s Canadian Sandpit (HMCS) Kandahar. PO2 Clancy Keoughan, from the military police (MP) working at Kandahar Airfield (KAF) has this to say about now being in a purple trade. Unlike many Navy MPs, I actually have sea time from my previous occupation, so when I got posted to the army in 1993 and wanted to maintain my naval identity (everyone called me Corporal), I grew a beard and icked off my army warrant officer. Well, I never looked back about having a beard until I came over here. Since I arrived in Afghanistan there have been a couple of times I wished it was gone because of the heat and dust. But, alas, my beard and pusser attitude have remained and I am proud to say that I am Navy to this day. Among those of the senior service doing their bit in Afghanistan are clearance divers, cooks, MARS officers, supply technicians, logistics officers, Stewards, Naval Communicators, Military Police, RMS Clerks, JAGs, physician assistants, a nurse, a doctor, a social worker, a chaplain and a public affairs officer. There are west coast sailors, east coast sailors and landlocked sailors. Two of us have served in submarines (V boats and O boats). Collectively, we have sailed in more than 40 different ships and submarines, but the saltiest Canadian sailor in Kandahar Province is CPO2 Stephen Amos, a Naval Combat Information Operator who served in 13 Canadian and US ships from 1973 to CPO2 Amos currently works at the Operations Coordination Centre for the Province in Kandahar City.Another character, Padre James Brown, the father of souls in KAF, has worked hard during his tour in order to convert his sun-baked army parish to more appropriate naval terminology. For example he stated, I am the Chaplain of the NSE (National Support Element), which I have always maintained since our pre-deployment training in Wainwright means Naval Support Element given the large number of Navy people in the NSE. I also likened the combat logistics patrols we do to the convoys out of Halifax in the Second World War, the RG-31 armoured vehicles are the destroyers, and the insurgents with the improvised explosive devices and ambushes are the U-boats. The vast desert is like the North Atlantic with safe harbour being any of the forward operating bases, while the supply trucks with the sea cans of course are the supply ships. As for other ways of contributing to the cause, at least three Kandahar sailors have members of their progeny also serving in the Canadian Forces.

In spite of all the different backgrounds, every scallywag who has had the privilege of running aground in Kandahar agrees upon one thing. The mission here is very important and worth our personal and collective sacrifices in order to help Afghans find some stability and security. However, when all is said and done, we must also admit that it s a powerfully dry place to be and can t wait to get back home for a real run ashore.

10 10 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Quality of life gets better in Aldershot By Sgt Todd Berry Army News CANEX s dedication to serving the military community and adaptability to change has created many smiling faces in Detachment Aldershot recently. On Wednesday, July 2, the doors opened to the camp s very own CANEX outlet. Although smaller than its sister store in CFB Greenwood, it does offer the troops access to the basic necessities of life. Having a CANEX on base makes it a lot easier for the troops to buy what they require, especially before they go out to the field, said Camp Aldershot s Operations Sergeant, Sgt Casey Welbourn. Sgt Welbourn liked the improvements to the quality of life on camp. He said, It makes it easier for him to get stuff that he requires faster. I don t have to leave the camp. With maximum training being squeezed into every day and every hour, more soldiers are pressed for valuable time; many think CANEX is an essential asset to have close at hand. We felt that CANEX was absolutely critical here for the quality of life of the soldiers, said Detachment Aldershot s 2IC, Capt Sgt Casey Welbourn, Operations Sergeant for Detachment Aldershot, browses through the newly opened CANEX outlet. Bob Chalmers. Can you image a situation where you have over 800 people and you can t even offer them the ability to buy some soap or laundry detergent and with no bus service we considered it absolutely critical, stated Capt Chalmers. CADPAT wallets, field message SGT TODD BERRY, ARMY NEWS pad covers, junior general kits, knife, fork and spoon (KFS) covers, boot bands and yes, even snack food are now available to those soldiers who didn t own a vehicle and didn t always have a chance to get into town. Now soldiers can spend the $10 they would have spent on a taxi ride to town on something else that perhaps they wouldn t have been able to afford previously. CANEX s dedication to serving the military community is reflected in the Support Our Troops line of merchandise which is available at this outlet as well. According to the CANEX website, CANEX s mission is to ensure the availability of competitively priced products and services which satisfy the needs of its customers, while generating revenue for bases, wings and units. Last year CANEX contributed $3,130,167 to the CF Morale and Welfare Activities. Of that, Halifax received $187,737 and CFB Greenwood received $51,710. Capt Chalmers is also proud that this summer the camp opened a mini-air-conditioned internet café, a mini-theatre room with a 108-inch screen and projector and last but not least, two free wireless internet access areas located at each of the ranks messes.

12 12 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Testing the motorcycle metal By Virginia Beaton Trident staff So many motorcycles, so little time. Twenty motorcycles stood in the parking lot of the Windsor Park CANEX store on Tuesday, September 2. The occasion was an event called Test Our Metal, presented for DND and CF members by Harley Davidson. It was an opportunity to take a test ride on the motorcycles, according to Candida Calliou, demo team lead for Harley Davidson. They are welcome to try any one of them providing they have the proper jacket, helmet, motorcycle license and riding gear. From 10 a.m. to late afternoon, riders could take an escorted 15 km group ride on a pre-arranged route. The choice of motorcycles included one from every family, Caillou stated. They ranged from the touring model to Softails, the Dyna, Sportsters, the V-rod, the Buell and the 1125R. The event was part of a seven-month tour across the country, according to Calliou. We stop at all the Harley Davidson dealerships throughout Canada. We had contacts at all the CANEX stores and they allow us to come and set up shop for people, especially the troops, to ride. Among the eager riders was Maj Bob Edwards from J-7 in JTFA. When he heard about the event, I ran out at lunchtime to come up here to take a bike for a ride. I liked it so much, I m going to take a second one for a ride. An avid motorcyclist since 1981, Maj Edwards owns two motorcycles but I do not have a Harley Davidson. But I m looking at that and considering a purchase in the near future. His wife also is a motorcyclist and Maj Edwards regretted he had not been able to contact her about the Test Our Metal event. I think she would have come here over her lunch hour too. Seated on a Fat Bob, Maj Edwards noted the kind of bike he likes is a cruiser bike. He owns a tour bike but calls the cruise bike a more stripped-down version. Not even a windshield on it, so you get the wind in your face and the bugs in your teeth, so it s the freedom of riding. I think it is the ideal bike for what I would call a café cruiser, for going around town, going out for coffee, riding with friends locally. But on the highway he prefers the tour bike, with a windshield and some protection from the elements. Maj Bob Edwards was among the CF members who had a free ride courtesy of Harley Davidson in the Test our Metal event.

13 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, Trois cents metres entre deux Charlottetown Par Ltv Kévin Jutras HMCS Charlottetown Le septembre 11, 1942, après avoir escorté 11 convoies entre Gaspé, Rimouski et Québec, la corvette d escorte NCSM Charlottetown fut frappée coté tribord par deux torpilles du sous-marin allemand U-517 à la hauteur de Cap- Chat, Qc. Résultat, le navire coula en 3 minutes et amena avec lui 10 marins canadiens. C est pour souligner le courage, le dévouement et le sacrifice des membres de la corvette, que l équipage actuel du Charlottetown a débuté sa visite des Grands Lacs par une cérémonie commémorative sur le lieu de perdition. Au dessus de la corvette de 1942 s est retrouvée, le quatre septembre, la frégate de 2008, entre les deux, 300 mètres d eau et 66 ans d histoire. In today's complex and fastpaced world, it's important to create opportunities to reflect on the history of this wonderful institution of ours, the Canadian Navy. The modern sailor is ever mindful of the crises facing us overseas, and thus it can be easy to forget that conflict was so close to home over sixty years ago. In a moving service to honour courageous sailors from a time before, HMCS Charlottetown III paid her respects to Charlottetown I, resting Lt(N) Klotz, padre in HMCH Charlottetown, conducted a ceremony in memorial of the first Charlottetown, torpedoed in 1912, and a committal of ashes. on the floor of the St Lawrence 300 metres below. The significance of that fact was clearly evident in the faces of the ship's company, and for a brief period the past was brought to the present. We indeed remained mindful of our heritage, and our gratitude for those who served before, stated Cdr Waddell, Commanding officer, HMCS Charlottetown. Lt(N) Klotz, Padre, Charlottetown, stated As we honoured the memory of the original HMCS Charlottetown, sailing above her, she became a gift to us. Her gift was the felt pride and purpose that comes from being part of a proud and noble tradition of service and sacrifice. Our blessing her became her blessing to us. Lors de la cérémonie, les cendres de trois vétérans furent solennellement retournées à la mer : les cendres de monsieur Reginald George Butcher, mat2, plongeur, MRC de 1954 à 1957; les cendres de monsieur Ronald Schippanoski, approvisionnement, MRC de 1968 à 1975; ainsi que les cendres de monsieur Clyde Harry Smith, cpl, cuisinier, FC de 1952 à The Committal to Sea service is a solemn and respectful service that is meaningful to all who attend. When sailors honour the lives of veterans who once served in the same trades we serve today, an appreciation of what we do and are apart is inspirational, stated Lt(N) Klotz. Il est difficile d expliquer ce que l'on vit quand on est 300 mètres au dessus d un navire ayant eu la même mission que nous, la protection du Canada. Si les mots manquent, le souvenir cependant demeure. Si vous passez par Cap-Chat, prenez le temps de regarder l étendue d eau, vous y verrai certainement la mémoire de nos héros. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

14 14 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 A Second World War Navy hero turns 90 DIANA HENNESSY Lt(N) Gordon Gray, LCdr (retd) Jim Reddy, LCdr Pat Jessup, LCdr Graeme Arbuckle, VAdm (retd) Bruce MacLean, Lt(N) Greg Walker. Seated Cdr Elspeth Naismith, VAdm Hennessy. By Virginia Beaton Trident staff One hundred fifty people attended VAdm Ralph Hennessy s 90th birthday party, held at the Royal Ottawa Golf and Country Club on September 8, Now retired and living in Ottawa, VAdm Hennessy was First Lieutenant in HMCS Assiniboine in 1942 when the ship sank the German U-boat U-210. During Battle of the Atlantic Week in 2005, VAdm Hennessy visited CFB Halifax and during a speech in the ballroom of the wardroom, he recalled some of the highlights of his lengthy naval career. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1918, Ralph Hennessy joined the Royal Canadian Navy in August 1936, becoming the first Hennessy in four generations not to serve in the Army in time of war. From 1936 to 1939 he underwent training in the Royal Navy, including service on nonintervention patrol in the Spanish Civil War and on the Africa Station. In South Africa, VAdm Hennessy recalled a lot of our time as midshipmen was spent running boats. The general theory behind this, apart from the fact that the boats had to be run, was that if you smashed up a motorboat, which I did on several occasions as a midshipman, the theory was that you would not smash up a destroyer when eventually you got command of it. I ve never quite worked out the mathematics out but looking back on it, I think I banged up more motorboats than I did destroyers, so the theory must have been more or less correct. In 1939, SLt Hennessy was part of the commissioning crew of Assiniboine, where he would spend nearly four years during the Second World War. In Halifax in 2005, he described the sea battle against U-210, which took place in August Assiniboine sank the U-boat after a fierce battle during which the Canadian ship sustained significant damage. According to VAdm Hennessy, The U-boat started off by trying to fight us on the surface, and shot us full of holes in the process. I can remember in the midst of all the uproar, the captain turned to me on the bridge and said, Go get that fire out. Nothing daunted, I said What fire? He pointed aft and I tuned around and there was a great towering cloud of black smoke. One ladder was on fire and when Hennessy tried the other, the flames had gone through the superstructure. So I eventually got down to help the fire parties by jumping off the back of the bridge onto the mast and started shinnying down to the deck. When Tom Forrestall s mural depicting Assiniboine s battle with U-210 was unveiled in April 2005, VAdm Hennessy joked that he looked forward to finally seeing it because he had not observed the original incident, as he had been below, working to contain the damage from the fire. In recognition of his actions during the encounter, Lt(N) Hennessy was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) for gallantry and distinguished services before the enemy. On two occasions Hennessy commanded Assiniboine, the first time in 1943 and the second during the winter of Promoted to Acting LCdr in October 1943, Hennessy became Executive Officer of HMCS Kings, the RCNVR Officers Training School and in February 1944 he became Acting CDR and Commanding Officer of Kings. After the war ended, Hennessy s sea commands included posts as Commanding Officer of Micmac, Executive Officer of Quebec and as Commander First Canadian Escort Squadron in Algonquin. His shore appointments included postings in Ottawa, Halifax and London, England and attendance at the RCAF Staff College and the National Defence College. He was promoted to VAdm in July l966, and served first as Comptroller-General and then as Chief of Personnel of the Canadian Forces before he retired in l971. Following retirement from the CF, VAdm Hennessy was appointed by Order in Council as the founding Executive Director of the Standards Council of Canada in Ottawa, where he served for 12 years. At the same time he also was vice president of the International Organization for Standardization from 1976 to 1981, the first Canadian to hold this position. After this second career retirement, the Governor General presented VAdm Hennessy with a Senior Officer Retirement Certificate. In retirement, VAdm Hennessy was involved with the Ottawa branch of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires from 1973 to 1986, including two years as Chairman of the Board of Governors. He was also actively involved in the operation of the Royal Ottawa Golf Club from l975 to l984, serving as president for one year. In May 1995 VAdm Hennessy graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts in history. He is a trustee of the Admiral s Medal Foundation and together with his wife Diana, of the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust. Currently VAdm Hennessy and Mrs Hennessy are members of the Canadian Naval Centennial Working Group.

16 16 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 The 100th RAS for HMCS Protecteur By Lt(N) Jim Smith HMCS Protecteur Nearly 40 years ago, HMCS Protecteur was built for a single purpose: to conduct replenishments at sea (RAS) with ships. Over the last four decades the ship has fulfilled its mission relentlessly and developed the proud reputation it currently enjoys. The past year has seen this venerable tanker transform and emerge from its refit into a high readiness platform ready for duty at a moment s notice. Presently, it is deployed in the Arabian Sea as part of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150) alongside HMC Ships Calgary and the command platform Iroquois. It takes dedication, hard work, even a little luck to accomplish what Protecteur has managed to do in less than a year. The program began in earnest last August when the ship proceeded out of the mouth of Esquimalt harbour. With the shadows of Hartley Castle and Fisgard Lighthouse behind her, it began a series of sea trials that would serve to prove the near 15-month refit had accomplished what it had intended. Perhaps the most important trial was the beginning of the RAS program. On August 20, 2007, it made its first hook-up with Vancouver, its first since the fall of This RAS was a foreshadowing of what has been and continues to be a busy year for the ship and its crew. Through August and portions of September and October, the program of sea trials progressed and technically the ship was given the green light to continue on. The next and perhaps most challenging Overview of HMCS Protecteur in Gulf of Aden, replenishing HMCS Iroquois during a Replenishment At Sea (RAS) in the Arabian Sea, where some Canadian ships are deployed for Operation ALTAIR. phase was Work Ups (WUPS) in October and November. Experienced members of Sea Training Pacific, wearing their trademark red hats, descended upon the ship and put it through its paces. During this period, nearly 30 RAS with both American and Canadian ships were carried out and not all were of a standard flavour. Many were done in the black of night with only the dim radiance of navigational lights and safety glow sticks illuminating the ships as they came alongside for fuel and supplies. Replenishments were also practiced in radio silence giving the evolutions a tactical significance, many of them ending with a practice emergency breakaway, where all the gear needs to be returned at a safe, but accelerated pace. There was a welcome break during December but the New Year came quickly and with it was a planned deployment to the Hawaiian Islands for MidPac Oiler duties. The focus of this operation was to act as the principal Auxiliary Oil Replenishment (AOR) platform for allied ships operating in the area including some proceeding to the Gulf, such as the USS Russell. At the end of the MidPac deployment, on February 29, 2008, an official statement from the Minister of National Defence was released stating that Protecteur was being deployed to the Arabian Sea in mid April joining Calgary and Iroquois as a part of CTF 150. The ship sailed south in company with Calgary, refuelling it four times before reaching the Panama Canal. After joining Iroquois on the opposite side of the canal, the newly formed three-ship Canadian Task Group began its transit of the MCPL GAETAN RACINE Atlantic Ocean. During the transit across the Atlantic Ocean and into the Mediterranean, Protecteur completed more than 23 RAS including six in one single day, over a seven-hour period. Once on station in the operational theatre, it didn t get quieter. In addition to conducting hails and approaches of merchant and fishing vessels and dhows, boarding the occasional one when the situation warranted and patrolling waters frequented by pirates, the 40-year old tanker completed more than 15 RAS and on July 20, Protecteur completed its 100th RAS post refit. It was fitting that the 100th RAS completed was with our two Canadian consorts Calgary and Iroquois and rightfully, both can take the honour in celebrating that accomplishment with Protecteur. The numbers are astonishing when broken down. Since proceeding to sea in August 2007 Protecteur has traveled more than 46,500 nautical miles, consumed just less than 10 million litres of fuel, supplied just short of 20 million litres of fuel to ships from Australia, Canada, Germany, Greece, Italy, Pakistan, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. The deployment was just at the halfway point then and already many more partners have called on our fine ship for fuel. There remain many more RAS for Protecteur to complete before it ties up in Esquimalt for a break later this fall as it transits east around the globe in company with Calgary. The reliable vessel has proven itself equal to the task time and time again. Well done to its crew, past and present, who kept it going all these years.

17 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 H o m e I m p r o v e m e n t S p e c i a l 17 Home improvement tips for Fall and Winter News Canada A laminated floor? Why not Laminate floors are perfect for active rooms in the home and especially practical in homes with children and animals. Laminate flooring combines realistic designs with strong, durable and water-resistant finishes that are more quiet and comfortable than parquet, stone or ceramic flooring. Laminate floors easily imitate other types of hard surface flooring as the pattern is reproduced by printing a high-definition image that is protected by a melamine resin resulting in a variety of styles and designs. This type of flooring is available in styles imitating real wood, sophisticated ceramics and natural stone. Dare to be exotic only with laminate floor coverings can you allow your imagination to run wild. Exotic mahogany, ebony, marble, slate or antique pine; only your sense of adventure, and not your budget, may limit your choices. Not only is there a range of style options, floor covering technology has advanced considerably in recent years and now offers bevelled edges, aligned embossing (the texture corresponds perfectly to the printed pattern), multiple widths and different lengths. There is a style and texture to match every imaginable decor. All of these choices come with the added benefit of being environmentally friendly. Most laminate floors are made of partially recycled materials such as Berry Floor. Berry Floor laminates are ecological as they are mostly made from recycled wood fibre that comes from a sustainably managed forest explained Sophie-Tanya Lupien, marketing manager for Beaulieu Canada, distributor of Berry Floor. Good quality laminate flooring is hypoallergenic because it offers no hiding places for bacteria or a dust mites which is beneficial for people with allergies, nor does does high quality laminate flooring emit toxins. Laminate flooring can be installed above or below grade, over concrete or wood, in fact over almost any flat surface. A floating laminate floor can be installed directly over an existing floor, saving time and installation costs but also making it possible to install such floors in places where other types of flooring are not recommended. The great majority of laminate floors are so easy to install that many people do it themselves and save substantial installation costs. Moreover, floating floors installed without glue can be used immediately after installation. Laminate flooring is easy to clean and maintain with a vacuum or dust mop, and because high quality, laminate floor coverings are both easy to maintain and durable, they can increase the value of a home While the market is currently flooded with laminates, it is important to choose carefully. With every level of quality available in stores, make sure to choose a high quality product with features that offer quality, design and durability in an environmentally conscious way. More information on laminate flooring is available online at Countertop trends: quartz tops granite as strongest rock in consumer reports Consumers in the market for a premium countertop surface are discovering early in their search that quartz, and not granite, has become the highest rated and most popular option available. That s because quartz countertops have emerged as the new worry-free, elegant alternative to high-maintenance granite for architects, designers and homeowners alike. They re stronger than granite, require no resealing, are highly resistant to scratches and stains and come in a huge variety of colours. In fact, Consumer Reports Magazine rated quartz as the top performer among countertop materials such as granite, ceramic tile, stainless steel, laminate, marble, limestone and concrete when it came to resisting prime kitchen hazards such as stains, heat and scratches. According to the recent Freedonia Group Report on countertop industry trends, there has been a

18 18 H o m e I m p r o v e m e n t S p e c i a l TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 definite shift in the marketplace over the last few years as quartz has become the fastest growing market segment in the industry with 13 per cent growth compared to granite s five per cent. Quartz surfaces are growing in popularity because they have the appearance of natural stone, but unlike granite, these surfaces never need to be sealed. Quartz is a nonporous material, which means it will not promote the growth of mold, mildew or bacteria. This is why leading brands such as Han- Stone Quartz surfaces are certified NSF 51 (with the National Sanitation Foundation). HanStone quartz countertops have an aesthetic that can emulate the look of granite, but are also available in unique colours and surface effects not found in natural stone, explained Mark Hanna, President of Montreal-based Leeza Distribution Inc., one of North America s leading distributors of HanStone Fine Quartz Surfaces ( The benefit of quartz is that it doesn t have any of the drawbacks associated with materials such as granite. What is quartz? Quartz is silicon dioxide and it occurs as individual crystals and fine-grained masses in a large variety of forms, patterns, and colours. It is naturally hard and scratch resistant. Most quartz countertops are manufactured with up to 93 per cent quartz mixed with pigments and resins. This prescribed mixture results in a product that is nonporous, exceedingly durable, and more than twice as strong as granite. The top rated quartz surface in the industry by designers, architects and developers a like is HanStone, because it contains a higher quartz content than the norm and includes clear and multiple quartz colours, bringing greater depth, dimension and style to its surfaces. HanStone is also accredited with Greenguard environmental certification for low emitting products. The Greenguard certification is becoming an important requirement for consumers looking for premium countertops following recent news reports that the Environmental Protection Agency has been receiving increasing calls from radon inspectors and concerned homeowners about granite countertops emitting dangerous levels of radon and radiation. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. As a result, more and more consumers are looking for healthier options for their countertops such as HanStone for its Greenguard certification to ensure their countertops emit low to no emissions of toxic chemicals into their home environment. If it has to be a facelift instead of a makeover Increasingly, kitchens will become the gathering place for informal dinners, cooking shared with family and guests and dining areas integrated with work areas. Elaine Cecconi, interior designer and partner in the award winning firm, Cecconi Simone Inc. suggested some strategic changes that will freshen up your kitchen without breaking the bank. Reface the cabinets and drawers. A lot less expensive than allnew cabinetry. Install a new low flow, multifunctional faucet. The right look will make a statement, and you will use less water. New countertops are a good idea. Granite will add value beyond its cost. With new countertops you ll most likely need a new sink and faucet. Undermount sinks are increasing in popularity. More information on freshening up your kitchen is available at Handy homeowners can add natural light quickly Are you a homeowner with a dark area in your home that can benefit from natural light? An easy-toinstall Sun Tunnel Skylight could be the answer for bringing light into a hallway, laundry room, closet or a bathroom. For a handy do-it-yourselfer, the Sun Tunnel Skylight is an ideal project which can be completed in two to three hours. But for those who are a little wary of undertaking a DIY project, a reasonably priced professional installation can be arranged. Either way, some of the darkest areas in a home can become filled with passive natural light while increasing energy efficiency. Velux Sun Tunnel Skylights bring passive, white natural light into a home compared to conventional incandescent bulbs that can create an unnatural yellow glow. Natural sunlight uses the entire spectrum that enables a room to become vibrant and alive in the colours that you intend. Seeing true colours can be helpful in a simple chore such as folding laundry a more complex task of painting or redecorating a room. Featuring an industry-first adjustable pitch adapter, light is captured efficiently through a clear, weatherproof dome on the roof. The light travels into the home through highly reflective tubing, ending at a diffuser which has a paintable matte finish. Depending on your installation needs between the roof and ceiling, a choice of highly reflective rigid tubing is available for straight runs or flexible tubing to easily bypass any attic obstructions. Sun Tunnel Skylights are available in a variety of models in 10", 14" and 21" diameters to fit different truss spaces and lighting needs.

19 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 H o m e I m p r o v e m e n t S p e c i a l 19 SPECIAL are born in Europe. For the thousands of Canadians who undertake home renovation projects each year, the latest inspiration provided by some of Europe s most popular design trends may just result in a bathroom space that truly breaks the mold and makes the monotony of the home s most utilitarian space a thing of the past. In European bathrooms, large structural pieces of furniture are added to the space in order to create an experience in the room. Picture an exquisite vanity with old-world styling and traditional Queen Anne legs, an artisan petite vanity combining design elements found in craftsman furniture. Or perhaps a dramatic framed mirror on the wall that complements the vanity. Pieces like this create a distinct mood and give the homeowner another tool with which to shape the experience of the room. Just like furniture in the bedroom or kitchen, bathroom furniture goes a long way toward personalizing a space and creating the desired ambiance. The feeling of a return to nature is another trend that can be seen in many elements of the European bathroom. Cast iron, glass, marble and stone in lavatories, counters and floors are common elements sought to create ambiance in the oasis the home bathroom has become. Simple accessories and furniture that incorporate bamboo are a more subtle way of bringing the peace of the unspoiled outdoors into the home. The Escale suite from Kohler is just one example that perfectly captures the combined impact of these two trends. For homeowners seeking a fresh and forward looking change in the bathroom, the very European trends of furniture and the calming influence of nature promise a tranquil and expressive space. These trends bring a unique charisma to the bathroom and create a realm of rejuvenation and personal indulgence where the day s stresses can be washed away. Eco-friendly décor with more Gone are the days of doing just about anything without first considering the environment. Many Canadians feel eco-friendly features are important to the home because they add value. The good news is it doesn t require major renovations to be ecological.

Solar films can be applied directly to any window, working to conserve energy by retaining heat during winter and blocking heat in the summer. Consider bamboo blinds; strong enough for daily wear and tear but appealing to the eye, or window covers made from 100 per cent organic cotton. The material is processed without the use of chemicals and dyed with natural colorants. Hanging out. The newest models of ceiling fans use energy-efficient motors and advanced blade design to move air up to 20 per cent more efficiently than standard types.

20 20 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Through the tragedy of Swiss Air lives were changed Padre s Corner By LCol JM Fletcher Director Chaplain Services It s hard to believe that it was 10 years ago, but I was painfully reminded of those difficult days in September 1998 as I watched the coverage from Spain of the devastating crash that happened there. I was of course the Senior Fleet Chaplain in 1998, and was actually the Duty Chaplain on the week in question. The crash happened before midnight, but I first found out about it when I was awakened by a phone call about 2 a.m. It was the Cox n of the Kingston, the ready duty ship. He told me that there had been a plane crash at sea in the area of Peggy s cove, that the Kingston had been tasked to deploy as part of the search and rescue effort. And because he felt this could well be a difficult mission for the crew, he wanted to know if it would be possible to take a chaplain with them. I said, sure, and asked when they were sailing. He told me, in 20 minutes, and I told him that I d be there. I didn t even have time to pack a duffle bag. There was only time to get dressed, grab my chaplain kit, (I had thought that the anointing oil might be required), and to get to the jetty in time to board the ship before she sailed. It took us a few hours to sail to the area of the accident and I recall that we arrived there around daybreak September 3. As the sun rose it became clear to all of us that there would have been no survivors, and that our search and rescue mission had become a search and recovery operation. The smell of aviation fuel filled the air, and I recall thinking that it almost seemed as if you could have walked on the sea. The sea seemed completely covered with debris. There were pieces of the plane itself such as seat cushions, parts of the fuselage and insulation, etc. There were also so many personal effects of the passengers, such as suitcases and clothing, wallets and photos, and children s toys, etc. And interspersed with all of this debris were the tattered remains of precious human lives of the 229 souls that perished in this tragic crash. We began the difficult task of collecting and sorting all of the debris, personal effects and human remains. Our Zodiac crews worked together with local fishing vessels that had come to offer their help. They gathered, and brought their boat loads of items to us aboard the Kingston, where we set about sorting the material as best we could. I worked with the crews on the quarterdeck and helped with the difficult and emotional task of sorting. I recall that as hard is it was to handle the human remains, it was harder still to handle the personal effects of the passengers. Wallets filled with personal identification and photos, children s items, souvenirs from family holidays now ended, clothing and personal items were all filled with impact for us, and helped us to identify with and feel for those who perished in this tragedy. It was exhausting work, physically, emotionally and spiritually. And as I had made the choice (not really knowing how else to be helpful) to work alongside the other crew members in this recovery work, I became as overwhelmed and drained as they did. It was difficult for us to shield ourselves from the impacts of this Services at sea help ships companies come to terms with grief and loss. effort, but we supported one another, and tried with great respect and as much dignity as we could, to honor the spirit of those whose lives we sifted and sorted. We were soon joined by at least two other vessels (Preserver and Ville de Québec, I believe) which I think were diverted from a naval exercise in which they had participated. We and other smaller vessels began the process of transferring the material we had collected to these larger vessels for more thorough sorting within the larger hanger spaces. As time went along, and days began to unfold we learned of so many others who had joined in the effort. Coast Guard, RCMP, and Army units (Regular and Reserve) who engaged in the difficult task of gathered the material that had washed ashore along the coast. There were countless other volunteers who cared for and supported family members who began to gather in Halifax and at Peggy s Cove. There was the difficult work of the coroner and the teams of dental and forensic specialists who sought to identify the remains. There were the aviation specialists and engineers who painstakingly reconstructed the aircraft in their efforts to assist in determining the cause of the crash. And there were counselors and CIS workers who came from far and wide to support all of us who were impacted by our efforts to honor this loss and bring what closure we could to the families of the victims. On that first Saturday evening, September 5, the XO of Kingston asked me if I would prepare a service for the crew for Sunday morning. And for the first time in my ordained life, I had no idea what to say, or what to do. I felt inadequate to the task and incapable of offering to others the very ministry that I myself needed... I remembered I had my chaplain kit, and... found a copy of the Book of Common Prayer. As it turned out, the gospel reading appointed therein for the 13th Sunday after Trinity, (which just happened to fall on September 6, 1998), was Luke 10: 25-37, The Good Samaritan. A story about innocent traveler who was brutalized and left for dead. A story about a Samaritan who interrupted his own plans to respond to this tragedy. A story used by Jesus to indicate the kind of neighbor we are called to be for others. A story that spoke powerfully to me that night as I read it again, as if for the very first time. A story that allowed me to find some word of hope and comfort to share with a shipboard community of good Samaritans, whose company I was humbled to share. As we shared this word on that Sunday morning, and as we shared together in the mystery of the sacrifice of Christ s own body broken, and blood outpoured, it is my hope and sense that while the difficult task at hand became no easier we somehow found our individual and collective strength to face that task renewed... I hope that some of this is of help to you. It has been helpful for me to reflect on it a bit after all these years. I am also attaching the following prayers which were offered by Jack Barrett on the occasion that the COME TO WORSHIP SUNDAYS AT CF CHAPELS St. Brendan s, Stadacona Sunday Worship 1015 French Catholic Mass 1115 English Catholic Mass - Lt(N) Jean-François Petitpas 1130 Friday Ecumenical Service of Remembrance & Prayer For information Shearwater Chapel, Shearwater Sunday Worship 0945 hrs R.C.

21 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, MARLANT Chaplain team visited the remains of the plane which had been painstakingly reconstructed for study and analysis in a hangar at Shearwater. Lord Jesus Christ we come here today and we experience many and conflicting feelings and emotions. Through the tragedy of Swiss Air flight 111 lives were changed. Some souls went on to glory in the next part of their journey, and some souls continue in this part of the journey with the memories and thoughts of an event that most will never experience. For those whose lives ended in that tragic crash, Lord, may the peace and reward that we proclaim and that You have promised, be their paradise. For their loved ones, I ask Lord that they would experience Your healing and that the cherished memories of their loved ones would forever be fresh and vivid and not be eroded by time and distance. In the midst of the shattered plane today, Lord, we pray for ourselves, and especially for those who were called upon to respond and be Your representatives on the night of the accident and in the days and weeks that followed. May peace and healing be present and may your spirit be a comfort to all who are called upon to minister in difficult and trying times. Lord Christ, You promised that whatever we ask in Your name, You would provide. We take You at Your word and ask that the presence of Your spirit would constantly surround us. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Relieve stress in the relaxation room By the Health Promotion Services team Give yourself the gift of a refuge from the stressors of the work day.

This redesign was more than a year in the making and included An Antanov AN-124 delivers the new turbine to Kandahar Airfield, to be loaded onto the convoy. NATO-ISAF In the early morning hours of September 2, Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) successfully delivered a new turbine to Kajaki Dam in Helmand province, Afghanistan. The result of the operation will be a much needed increase in capacity to generate electrical power, which will create a better quality of life for Afghan people in southern Afghanistan. The multinational convoy travelled 180km over road and desert tracks to reach its destination. Four thousand ANSF and ISAF troops were involved in the operation, including United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Denmark and Australia, providing security to the convoy and dominating the ground around it. The project, supported by the Government of the Islamic Republic of PSP website launch includes contest with ipod prize input from all the PSP entities, said Lorna Ash, PSP Webmaster. The launch is accompanied by a contest that will ask users what they think and how they like the new website. Those who submit replies will be entered in a draw for an ipod. There will be a link off the homepage of the PSP website, located at Having our customers provide us with their opinions and feedback will allow us to continuously tailor the website to suit the customers needs, said Frank Cleysen, PSP Manager. The response to the new website has been very favourable, Ash noted. Users have just started to tell us what they think and contest surveys and other feedback Afghanistan (GIRoA), is one part of the international community s effort towards redevelopment in the southern region, and has been funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Even though it was just one step in a much wider and more long-term reconstruction project, this operation clearly demonstrated ANSF methods will now be available on a regular basis giving them more opportunities to submit feedback on the website and on all of PSP s programs and services. The contest began on September 22 and will conclude on October 6. We are very pleased to launch this new customer portal, stated Cleysen. What we have tried to CPL JOE BLOGS/MOD and ISAF commitment to the reconstruction effort in Afghanistan, said MGen Lessard, Commander of ISAF Regional Command South. ANSF and ISAF believe that the population of Afghanistan are entitled to live in honour and dignity and will stay the course to help them to have a normal life, he added. Despite the disruptive effort from the insurgents, we achieved our goal and delivered the new turbine to Kajaki Dam, MGen Lessard stated the insurgents efforts have not been successful. They will not win and are not winning in the southern region. This project demonstrates the long term commitment of GIRoA and ISAF to support development and growth in southern Afghanistan. achieve is a website that is easy to navigate with a simple layout yet attractive enough to keep our customers captured and interested in the programs offered.

25 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, Golfing for fun, fitness and friendship By Virginia Beaton Trident staff For CWO Tony Stuckless, golf is a game. Even though he s been a member of the CF golf team, competing at least seven times in CISM championships, CWO Stuckless prefers to think of golf as recreation. While he works hard to maintain his game at a highly competitive level, CWO Stuckless, Wing Ops Chief at 12 Wing Shearwater, noted that over the 10 years he s been involved with CISM golf, he s enjoyed the comradeship of the sport. Most recently, CWO Stuckless was a member of the Canadian team competing in the fifth CISM World Military Golf Championship in Ottawa in August Teams from 13 countries competed and the Canadian team, comprising six men and two women, won silver. Overall our team did very well, CWO Stuckless observed. It was the best year that we played as a team and I think the preparation leading up to it was the big reason for that. He was happy that the championship took place in Ottawa and stated We were pleased to be able to show our country to all the other countries. For many of the participants, it was their first time The CFCISM golf team earned silver at this year s championship in Ottawa in August. in Canada. Friends introduced CWO Stuckless to golf when he was 25, in North Bay, Ontario. I grew up in Newfoundland and I think there were only three golf courses in the whole province then, he noted. He had played several other sports including broomball but in 1987, after moving to Washington State, I started golfing seriously and I quit playing everything else. I started making the regional and then the national golf team. It helped that he enjoyed the practice sessions and I think that s why my game has stayed pretty steady. CWO Stuckless said he plays golf as long as he can into the fall and early winter, until the snow is on the ground. To stay fit, he also works out five to six days a week. Golf helps balance out the stress and pressure of his job, he stated. Golf is my relaxation. I don t take it too seriously. I like to go out and I have fun on the golf course. It s a great game, but it s just a game. I don t tear myself up if I have a bad shot or a bad round. It gives me more determination to get more practice. Many of the CF CISM golf team members are over 40 and CWO Stuckless noted For some of us, playing golf keeps our energy up. It s a goal every year to keep our golf game sharp. Golf is also a chance to meet new people, he observed. I meet people all the time on the golf course and I enjoy that. I can golf with anyone and the only thing I say is, don t throw the clubs. It s a fun game and it s supposed to be relaxing. Would you go hunting without a gun? Would you go fishing without a pole? Why go vehicle shopping without knowing if and how much you qualify for.

26 26 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Gearing up to do the first set of EXPRES testing By Bruce Armstrong HMCS Ville de Québec Hello to you all back in Halifax, I thought it was about time for an update on my progress out here at sea. We have supported in the transportation of two ships worth of food for the world food fund now which is quite exciting to think about. The crews of these ships seem to be very thankful for our presence and our efforts to keep them safe. We have had to go to force protection red a number of times in the past few weeks since we are coming very close to the coast of Somalia. This is necessary because this country is still war torn, as most of you know. I can see that each time we go to force protection red that the ship s company is becoming more and more meshed with each other and the time it takes to get the ship shut down is quickly going down and down. It is impressive to see how well they work together and overcome any and all problems associated with these stressful situations. I am currently gearing up to do my first set of EXPRES testing when we dock next in Mombasa. There are roughly 20 people I need to test and I am scheduling this around a suggested safari trip. Other than that, stuff here has been pretty simple, I run classes daily still and am being accepted by the ship s crew. We also had the chance to get off the ship recently and wonder around Mombasa, Kenya. This country is very different from Canada. As soon as we left the guarded gate of the jetty we were swarmed by shopkeepers trying to sell us their goods. They were very friendly but also knew that we were there with money and they were doing their best to sell us all sorts of different souvenirs. I bought a few things but decided to keep some of my money to see what else was available in the main town. The ship organized a set of busses to take us to two locations in Mombasa. These were Fort Jesus and a hotel with a nice restaurant. The group I was with went first to the Fort Jesus stop. From there we got a guided tour of Mombasa's old town. This place was very run down and the streets were often no wider than one car. There were people cooking their meals out on streets as well as selling anything from food to clothing to luggage. Everywhere you looked there was someone working, this could be selling things, cooking or even carrying large loads of different things around the city. Even though all of this work and what I would Bruce Armstrong, PSP Fitness and Sports Instructor, works with Ville de Québec s boarding party. consider hardship was going on, everyone seemed to be in good spirits and the children seemed very excited to say hello to us in English and get responses. I was informed by our tour guide that almost all cooking done in Mombasa was done with charcoal. We were also told that old town was alcohol-free due to the beliefs of the religions there. The predominant religion was Islam so this makes sense that it would be an alcoholfree area. We then got a tour of Fort Jesus, which used to be a penal colony for Muslim prisoners. It was quite interesting to learn the history of this area and see the remnants of the old style jail. After this we had lunch or dinner at the hotel. I haven t had a problem at all finding bank machines to withdraw money from on our trip up until this point but it seems that in Mombasa they do not recognize Canadian bank cards or Mastercards so I had to search the city for a bank machine so I could get some of their money out to pay for CPL VEILLETTE everything. After about an hour of searching I finally found one. I was surprised at how difficult it was for me to get money there. I even went inside two banks and asked them if I could withdraw money directly from there but was told no because they did not recognize my bankcard or Mastercard. After two days in Mombasa we headed back out to sea. On September 4, we started celebrations and initiations for crossing the equator. The breakfast was... Well, let s just say interesting, with a wide variety of colours on your plate. This was then followed by, what I am being told was the first successful attempt since the 1970s of the tadpoles onboard taking control over the entire ship. There was lots of talk from the shellbacks about it being impossible to pull off but with the aid of the many tadpoles on the ship, we were successful in overtaking all areas save the communications. This was a great victory for us tadpoles and I was assured that it would go down in history. I was a part of the bridge take-over mission that went without a hitch. Unfortunately the rest of the initiation had to be postponed to a later date because of heavy rain and high waves that day.

27 TRIDENT, SEPTEMBER 22, LORNA ASH, TRIDENT PUBLICATIONS A swim in the lake was the first component of the Navy Fitness Challenge. In the water and on the road By Virginia Beaton Trident staff Approximately 100 participants swam, biked or ran to the finish line in the seventh annual Navy Fitness Challenge, held on Friday, September 5, 2008 at MacDonald Beach. Twenty-eight teams and 16 individual competitors took part in the event, according to Louis DeSouza, sports coordinator at the Fleet Fitness and Sports Centre. All fitness levels were represented, DeSouza stated. We have some elite athletes, some ex-cism athletes who have participated in world championships, some middle of the floor people and others who are just here to have some fun, and it s nice to see that. Teams ranged from Team Greasy and Team Oily, both from CFNES, to the Rum Runners, Waterwings, the Lugnuts, the Wingnuts from Wing Ops and the Dental Divas. Both Capt(N) Newton, Base Commander CFB Halifax, and Col Ploughman, Commander 12 Wing, took part in the challenge, DeSouza stated. It s good to see people like that come out to support the programme and participate as well. In his remarks at the opening of the challenge, Capt(N) Newton thanked PSP for organizing the event. He stressed the importance of sports, fitness and an active lifestyle for CF members. Deployments to regions such as Afghanistan highlight that necessity, he noted. Our country is putting us there to do the job the CF was created for. The challenge began at 10 a.m. when the swimmers plunged into the water for a 500 m swim. This was followed by a 14 km bike ride to the Hartlen Point Forces Golf Club and back and finally, a 5 km run. Challenge winners were: Open Team Champion, Waterwings ( 2Lt Lynn Patterson, PO1 Frank Lauzier, MS Craig Blake), 55:52; Open Male winner, LCdr Jason Lawton, 1:00:38; Open Female winner, Cpl Jennifer Albert, 1:17:28; Male Master, Col Bruce Ploughman, 1:04:41; Female Master, LCol Lise Bourgon, 1:18:24. Wing Cup winners: Team Open Winner, 423 Sqn (MCpl Chris Rozee, Sgt Marcel Demore, MCpl Shawn Brooks),1:06:47; Team Open Runner-up, Wing Ops 1:13:10. An unexpected but welcome addition to this year s challenge was the aerial show by the Skyhawks and the Snowbirds. In preparation for the Nova Scotia International Air Show on Saturday, September 6, both the Skyhawks and the Snowbirds performed their routines in the airspace just over MacDonald Beach, much to the enjoyment of the fitness challenge participants.
