Gauntlets,

This winter, our holidays will probably look different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although uncertainty and change could be sources of distress, there are ways to take action now and throughout the holiday season to help build your resilience and protect your mental and emotional health. If you’ve lost a loved one this year, or if you aren’t going to be able to visit your friends and family in the traditional ways, it’s ok to express your feelings of sadness, anger or disappointment. Just because it’s the holidays, it doesn’t mean you have to pretend to be jolly. When friends and family are not available to be contacted, there are other available resources who could assist in helping Sailors in need such as the Base Chaplain, who can be contacted at extension 2414, and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. During the holidays, ensure to make a plan, but be flexible. Every situation is unique, and commands may have different guidance in place during the holiday season with regards to travel. Things change quickly, and plans may have to be altered for your own health or for local conditions. Try to take things in stride as they come, without pressure or expectation. Due to current conditions, remember to be creative. A big holiday gathering may be out of reach, but thanks to technology, we can still make meaningful connections this season. Virtual events with loved ones can help bridge the gap until in-person visits are possible. It’s more about being connected than about how we connect. Additionally, many people find charitable work to be rewarding, especially during the holidays. Many organizations need volunteers no-contact drop off donations or consider sending a donation to your favorite charity in a loved one’s name. Finally, be mindful to take care of your health. Don’t abandon healthy habits like exercise and good nutrition, even if you’re off-duty. If you’re celebrating with alcohol, don’t overindulge. Get plenty of sleep. Be outside if you can. Self-care doesn’t take a holiday. We can still capture the feeling of togetherness and make it a holiday to remember.

VR,
YNC

To commemorate our upcoming 50th anniversary, team Ironclaw has a new addition to the hangar! A huge thank you to LCDR Salcido for leading this project. Several months of hard work went in to creating what used to be just a vision into a reality! We would also like to thank Heavy Light Works, Main Street Collision, Backwood Projects, 136 Chief’s Mess, 136 Corrosion, MA3 May, MA2 Lemons, LT Burns, LT Kraner, and LT Lapilio. This project wouldn’t have been successful without their help!

Some sad news to report to any plank owners who visit this page. Petty office second class James Mulvihill passed away today in Bellingham Wa. He was a very well liked shipmate. He suffered a heart attack near the end of September and today gave up the battle while still in the hospital. He is survived by his long time wife Nancy and had no children. Rest In Peace my friend.
On Ombudsman Appreciation Day, we would like to say thank you to our Ombudsman, Jen Hendricks-Kowalewski. Thank you for the support and what you do for us and our families while we’re currently away. Team Ironclaw appreciates you Jen! Thank you!

Late update on OLF Coupeville showing flights Weds, Thurs and Fri. It was my understanding that only VAQ-129 was using OLF. Can anyone confirm the rumor that VAQ-136 will be using OLF this week? PM me if this is something that can not/should not be posted publicly. Thank You
