MARCOM holds tactical level mine-countermeasure exercise

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today MARCOM holds tactical level mine countermeasure exercise View post tag: Mine-Countermeasures View post tag: MARCOM March 14, 2016 Authoritiescenter_img MARCOM holds tactical level mine countermeasure exercise NATO’s Maritime Command gathered 160 participants from 19 countries, including Partnership for Peace (PFP) countries Finland and Sweden, for the annual two-week long Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) tactical-level Mine Counter Measure (MCM) Command Post Exercise (CPX) which started March 7.The exercise is hosted by the Belgium-Netherlands Naval Mine Warfare School EGUERMIN and supported by the collocated NATO Naval Mine Warfare Center of Excellence.The main objective is to improve the capabilities of NATO forces to integrate and respond to a crisis where waterborne mines are a threat by testing MCM forces’ abilities to operate in the littorals and clear the sea ways for other maritime forces to safely conduct operations.Royal Norwegian Navy Captain Svein Kvalvaag, the exercise director, said: “One of the most important take aways from this exercise is multinational engagement. During this exercise we encourage nations to mix and collaborate.”This year’s training audience includes personnel from Standing NATO Mine Counter-Measures Group 1 (SNMCMG1) and the group’s incoming commander. The annual NATO exercise, designed to test naval mine counter-measures (MCM) tactics and procedures, is facilitated by a team of MARCOM staff officers, naval mine warfare experts, and scientists from NATO and PFP nations. This year the exercise also includes extensive media training.Similar to NATO live exercises, DME16 is supported by an in-stride reconstruction, analysis, and debriefing process. Three senior naval mine warfare officers provide daily feedback, allowing exercise participants to adjust and improve their performance the following day.MARCOM Deputy Chief of Staff –Plans, Portuguese Navy Commodore Joao Aresta, said: “The exercise provides an excellent opportunity for NATO and our Partner Nations’ MCM experts to strengthen their ability to operate in a controlled training environment to practice sustained MCM in realistic dynamic and challenging situations.”“This exercise series also fosters an ongoing exchange of information and lessons learned between our incoming and previous SNMCMG leadership, enhancing our ability to efficiently ensure the safety of the sea ways for maritime operations and manoeuvres. We are actively seeking options to offer this training in locations in the southern region in future in order to expand the opportunities for this valuable training to be conducted.”[mappress mapid=”17764″] Share this articlelast_img read more

Temptations Brought Motown to the Music Pier

first_imgBy Matt KoellingDue to the amount of time passed by, plus myriad of line-up shifts, in the fifty-seven years since The Temptations first signed to Motown, it was easy to head into Monday night’s sold-out show at the Ocean City Music Pier with tempered expectations. This is, after all, a group whose many trials and tribulations, along with personnel changes, made for a network television mini-series in 1998. The lone surviving member of the group’s original line-up, baritone Otis Williams, is the author of a 1988 autobiography that NBC’s The Temptations was based upon.The most memorable line from that four-hour TV event was troubled lead-singer David Ruffin coldly declaring “ain’t nobody coming to see you, Otis”. Ironically, almost fifty years after Ruffin’s firing from the group, and twenty-five since his tragic demise, people are still coming out to see Otis. Or perhaps more accurately, they’re coming out to see The Temptations, in whatever form they can get.It was just after 7 PM, on a beautifully sunny and mild evening on the boardwalk, when the 2017 incarnation of The Temptations, along with the Temptations Orchestra, took the stage while instructing five generations of fans in attendance to “Get ready, ‘cause here I come”. Almost immediately this reporter realized that any reservations he might’ve had, about what level of show The Temptations were bringing to the stage nowadays, were unfounded. Despite the lack of participants from the group’s “Classic Five” era, the stage was still littered with veteran show-business talent, ready to give the people what they wanted.This included a sprinkling of appropriate covers during different portions of the soul-revue styled show: Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up” to blend in some beach-inspired positive vibrations, McFadden and Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” as a nod to the born-nearby Philadelphia sound, “Old Man River” with Otis reprising the vocal first sung by Paul Robeson on Broadway as a tribute to the struggles and sacrifices made by their ancestors, and even the chanted chorus from Sly and The Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song” late in the proceedings to galvanize some wordlessly passionate crowd participation.Still, the main draw was all the classic cuts this group has brought to the popular music cannon. How many acts have added more classic records to the Great American Songbook than The Temptations? That list is very short, if there’s even any act on the list at all. To hear so many of them, performed with reverence, in staggering succession, can feel a bit overwhelming in the best sense of the word.You don’t get to be onstage, on a show billed as The Temptations, if you can’t sing or play at the highest level. Monday night was further proof of that fact. Former Tower of Power lead singer Larry Braggs did yeoman’s work in the lead tenor slot. Ron Tyson, whose first appearance in the “Eddie Kendricks” role came on live TV back in 1983 at Motown 25, continues to hold those falsetto notes for three decades and counting. Terry “Babyface” Weeks, who sung lead on the group’s last two hits in their late-90’s renaissance, showed on “Stay” why he had been tapped to replace ailing-from-throat-cancer late-great lead singer Ali-Ollie Woodson. The quintet is then filled out capably by relative newcomer, circa 2002, former George Harrison and Dolly Parton collaborator, Willie “Always Clean” Green on bass.While the fellas up front didn’t miss a step, in their trademark matching jackets, much of the heavy musical lifting continued to be done by The Temptations Orchestra, led by musical director/producer/arranger McKinley Jackson, who first came to fame by doing the same for fellow Motown legend Marvin Gaye. Jackson came out on occasion from his stage-left perch to animatedly implore the seven-piece horn section to give a bit more, plus added to Braggs’ crowd work with some dancing of his own. Adrian Williams’ guitar dutifully brought Detroit funk to “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and some prescribed psychedelia to “Cloud Nine”.The hits were seemingly endless. You know all of these songs, and it felt like they played them all. “The Way You Do the Things You Do” got the crowd shimmying in their seats early, but “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” was the first to get them standing up and dancing. Braggs channeled some of Ruffin’s vocal pain on “I Wish It Would Rain”. Tyson found his way towards Kendricks’ dreamy high lead on “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)”. By the time the group got around to performing “The Temptations National Anthem”, aka “My Girl”, the capacity crowd was standing and swaying their hands back and forth above their heads.Filing out shortly after the set closer, a fiery “I’m Losing You”, with a wide smile on her face, was Philadelphia-raised, long-time Ocean City seasonal resident Donna Gamber. Having seen Gamber earlier in the evening, escorting an 87-year-old woman she’d met seated nearby out to the aisle for a dance, we asked for her thoughts on the show, even though her answer was readily apparent before doing so. “They’re always great. I’ve been going to see The Temps since the Sixties, when they were playing the Uptown Ballroom in Philly and the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.” When bringing up her dance partner, Gamber was quick to exclaim, “wasn’t she amazing, that woman was 87!”, further marveling at founder Otis Williams, managing to be onstage for two hours “still doing all the steps, at 74”.While it may be nostalgia that first draws these fans inside the door, the end result of an event that manages to honor this legendary group, on a night like this, becomes something more. Regardless of whether you never have before, or like Donna Gamber have done so countless times, the next time The Temptations are coming in your Jersey shore direction, go shower them with love and affection.last_img read more
