FReeper Canteen ~ Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island ~ 21 AUGUST 2012

Road Trip: Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island

The Naval Station Newport (NAVSTA Newport) is a United States Navy base located in the towns of Newport and Middletown, Rhode Island. NS Newport is home to the Naval War College. It once was the homeport for Cruiser Destroyer Force Atlantic, and now maintains inactive ships at its pier facilities, along with the United States Coast Guard.

In BRAC 2005 (Base Realignment and Closure), NAVSTA Newport gained over five hundred billets, in addition to receiving, again, Officer Candidate School (OCS), and the Naval Supply Corps School, and several other activities.

Newport is the Navy’s premier site for training officers, officer candidates, senior enlisted personnel and midshipman candidates, as well as conducting advanced undersea warfare and development systems. Naval Station Newport’s mission is to fulfill the diverse requirements of its tenant commands by providing the facilities and infrastructure that are essential to their optimum performance.

Newport is the home of the Navy’s most prestigious educational institution, the Naval War College. As the oldest such institution in continuous existence any-where in the world, the college is organized to pursue and integrate both academic and research endeavors. Each year, over 500 outstanding mid-career level officers of the Navy, all other U.S. services, civilian federal agencies and inter-national naval officers come here to pursue a rigorous 10-month course of post-graduate studies.

Currently, the station is also the home of the USS Forrestal and the Saratoga, both of which are decommissioned. The Forrestal is set to be sunk as an artificial reef at a later date; the fate of the Saratoga has not yet been decided, although there is a movement which wishes to make the ship into a museum ship in nearby North Kingstown.

Patriots Memorial is located in front of McCarty-Little Hall at the Naval War College, Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island. The memorial is dedicated to the three students and ten alumni of the Naval War College who perished in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on The Pentagon. The Naval War College Foundation raised money for the memorial through private donations. It was dedicated in 2002 and contained a piece of limestone removed from the damaged portion of The Pentagon.

Sharpening One Another

August 21, 2012

Social networks on the Internet are on the rise. Even when separated by great distance, people are still able to gain insights and a listening ear from peers on-line. Blogs, Twitter, e-mail, and Web links add to the ways we can receive and give spiritual guidance.

But it’s also valuable to meet face to face with mature believers for mentoring. “Elisha . . . followed Elijah” (1 Kings 19:21), and Paul mentored Timothy as “a true son in the faith” (1 Tim. 1:2). He even admonished Timothy to set up a chain of mentoring which would multiply spiritual growth (2 Tim. 2:2). Moses exhorted parents to teach their children throughout their day: “when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” (Deut. 6:7). The Master Teacher, Christ Himself, illustrated how to mentor: “He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out” (Mark 3:14).

From these passages we see the value of meeting face to face in a variety of settings so that we can sharpen one another spiritually (Prov. 27:17). Along life’s journey, there are times when we can benefit from a wise guide or provide this same service to one who wants to follow.

Lord, who could be my mentor? And is there a
younger person in the faith I could help?
Please lead me so that I might grow stronger
spiritually and help others as well.
We need each other to get where God wants us to go.

Read: 1 Kings 19:19-21

As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. —Proverbs 27:17
Bible in a Year:
Jeremiah 9-12

Good thread...I lived there for a few years between Middletown and on base in Navy housing. My dad was the XO on a destroyer (USS Bristol) that did quarantine duty during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Before my parents passed away, we went on base and found the house...my God, it was so small. They raised six kids in this minuscule ranch house, I have no idea how.

I have some memories of that place, even though I was pretty young.

One of my favorite memories is when my dad came back from a Med cruise, and had all kinds of stuff for us...he had a camel saddle for each of us, and we had those scruffy things for years...I remember they always smelled funny when it rained, as if the cushions had been stuffed with scroungy camel hair.

He would take us down to the ship, and the cooks would give us celery with peanut butter!

My mom was driving us somewhere in the family wagon (a red 1958 Plymouth) and she picked up a hitchhiking sailor in his blues and duffel bag. Picking up a sailor with six kids in the car...I never asked, but I suspect he must have been a crew member from my dad’s ship that she recognized. My mom was a very good looking woman, and I always wondered what the sailor thought of that...

I went to Nursery school and kindergarden at the Cluny School, run by the nuns from the Cluny order. My brother told me years later they were an order that did a lot of missionary work in Africa, and Newport was considered rest and recreation duty for them. They seemed huge to me, wearing the traditional black “penguin habits”. They had enormous wooden crosses with large wooden beads around their waists, and had square toed black calf-high boots. They were the most wonderful nuns I have ever encountered in my life. They had beautiful, gentle personalities, and were very patient. One of the funniest things was, my brother went down there a few years ago, and there was an ancient nun there who remembered our family of six kids, particularly my younger sister. Apparently, my sister (who must have been four) hit one of the nuns...:)

Living there, my mother was teaching me the alphabet. When I was able to recite the alphabet, she bought me a toy as a gift, “The Fighting Lady”, a large plastic destroyer that had wheels and guns that fired things (a toy not to be sold in these wimpified times today!) That was probably the best toy I ever got (next to the GI Joe with the Mercury capsule and the rocket that used baking soda and vinegar as propellant!)

But by far, my favorite story that I remember is my mother taking all of us to some department store while my dad was at sea. Somehow, my brothers convinced her to buy them both the most amazing squirt guns that were the equivalent to super soaker types you see today. They looked like a standard pump action shotgun, and you filled the entire thing with water! Just amazing. Anyway, I remember being in the car on the way home as my mother admonished my brothers not to play with them inside the house. Of course, as soon as they filled them, they began squirting them at each other in the house. I watched through the dining room window in fascination and horror as my poor, stressed out mother, her hair literally standing on end, smashed both of the the squirt guns on the leg of the rusty swing set that was in the large common area that all the navy houses there shared!

Good Evening, Canteen Ladies and Canteen Guys!

Here we are on another night in The Bunker and it’s lightning and rain here, with power flickering on and off.

Well, it finally happened: Sarge and The Bride went to their first Medieval Reenactment this weekend! Sarge wore a white fencing shirt and black cloak; The Bride wore a vivid green vest and great skirt, which shone forth her blue eyes and her smile.

There were hours of dancing, song, time at the Tavern, and finally Baronial Court, attended by the Baron and Baroness who hosted the event, and also by Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of the realm.

What followed was the high feast. The feast hall was in the hall of a church, with a soaring fireplace and wood paneling; the effect was wonderful! The fare was Italian Renaissance, with three meat/veg courses and a dessert of fruit soup!

Sarge got no pics that day, but the group hosting the event plastered them all over Facebook. The Bride cringed when her pic showed up: someone caught her napping in the Tavern...

There was no swordplay involved this event, as it was all arts and gentility. But there will be other times and events, and this was only the first: more is yet to come!

USS Leahy was one of the most beautiful ships ever to sail under the US Flag.

Hey Ma!

It rained earlier so the smoke has cleared. But, the mosquitoes are back. LOL!

Fire still burning earlier today. The area the fire is burning may have unexploded ordnance so, I predict they will let it burn and hope for more rain.
