those along to our fellow Marines. I firmly believe that the Marines
of MALS-40 will continue to strive for excellence and will demand
the same of those around them.”

CAMP BASTION, Afghanistan
– Each squadron of the Marine
Corps aviation community has a
rich history and die-hard pride of
belonging. Taking this into con-
sideration, putting two squadrons
under one roof in the middle of
the desert and expecting them to
collaborate, does not sound like
the best idea, however, the 3rd
Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward)
has done just that.
   The Marine Heavy Helicopter
Squadron 361 “Flying Tigers”
were reinforced by one of its sis-
ter squadrons from Cherry Point,
HMH-366, to ensure the squadron
could meet the rigorous demands
of a heavy lift rotary squadron.
This reinforcement was necessary
to compensate for the squadron’s
reduced manpower, due to an
HMH-361 detachment currently
operating aboard the 31st Marine
Expeditionary Unit. The newly
augmented squadron became of-                                                                                                                                                          CPL. DEREK B. CARLSON

    Tips to keep children safe this holiday season
        The holiday season is a very hectic time for families
     across America. Parents need to be mindful this holiday
     season to avoid letting their guard down, making their
     children vulnerable.
        According to the Center for Missing and Exploited
     Children, in a U.S. Department of Justice one-year study,
     more than 700,000 children were reported missing in a
     year-long period, with an average of 2,185 children be-
     ing reported missing each day.
        Here are some tips from the Center for Missing and
     Exploited Children so families can avoid becoming a
     statistic this holiday season.

     A A
     •Always keep children with you at all times while shopping.
     •Always accompany and supervise children in public facilities, including restrooms.
     •Always have a plan in case you become separated, including a predesignated spot to meet.
     •Always teach children to look for people who can help, such as a uniformed security officer, salesperson or mother with children.
     •Always remind children to remain in the area where they become separated.

     •Never dress children in clothing that displays their names, prompting unwelcome attention from people looking for an opportunity to start a conversation with your child.
     •Never leave children in toy stores or public facilities expecting supervision from store personnel.
     •Never go shopping or attend a public event with a child if you feel you’re going to be distracted. Make other arrangements for child care ahead of time.
     •Never allow younger children to shop on their own to purchase surprise gifts for friends or family members.
     •Never drop off older children at a public place without agreeing on a clear plan for picking them up, including: where, what time, and what to do in case of a change in

     •When you make reservations for your child, specify that the child will be traveling alone.
     •Whenever possible, book a non-stop flight or direct route. Avoid booking the last flight of the day.
     •Plan to visit the airport, train or bus terminal prior to departure. Let your child know what to expect, so the experience will not be so intimidating.
     •In case of delay or cancellation, remain at the station or gate until the train, plane or bus departs.
     •Make sure children travel with proper identification and parents or guardian contact information.
     •Always have a back-up plan for the person or people meeting the plane at the destination, in case they are delayed.
     •Encourage children not to become too friendly with other passengers or to reveal any personal information.
