This video says about itself:

22 March 2012

Amid ongoing unrest in Bahrain, the regime’s cracking down on non-violent protesters, as well as people who’ve been helping them. A group of doctors are on trial, after treating wounded anti-government demonstrators last year. RT’s Paula Slier has the latest.

Correspondent with Global Research Finian Cunningham was in Bahrain and witnessed some of the doctors treating the wounded during the crackdown. He thinks the Bahraini regime is persecuting the medics to keep them from telling the truth.

    Chief of Navy Reserve Visits NSA Bahrain

    NAVAL SUPPORT ACTIVITY, Bahrain (NNS) — The chief of Navy Reserve and Navy Reserve force master chief spoke to Sailors during an all-hands call held onboard Naval Support Activity (NSA), Bahrain, March 20.

    Vice Adm. Dirk Debbink and Force Master Chief Chris Wheeler visited NSA Bahrain as part of a world tour to meet and speak with Sailors and Marines about the new 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative.

    Though the trip is primarily to speak about the initiative, here in Bahrain, the pair spoke exclusively to Reservists serving on active duty about Reserve affairs and to thank them for their service.

    Debbink shared how he is constantly told by active duty leadership about the importance of the Reserve component.

    “I’m proud to say there’s great support for our Navy Reserve, that’s demonstrated in the budget,” said Debbink. “We’re fully funded for [various types of orders] for the current fiscal year.”

    Wheeler thanked the group and extended his thanks to families back home.

    “It is our honor and privilege to be here,” said Wheeler. “We thank you and we want to make sure that you understand that, and not just you, but your families as well. Your families serve right alongside you.”

    Wheeler said that of the more than 100,000 Sailors who have served as individual augmentees (IA) during the past 10 years, 67,000 have been Reservists.

    “You can’t tell a Reserve from an active duty Sailor, we integrate so well,” said Wheeler.

    Yeoman 1st Class Kawanda Carter, a Reservist attached to Naval Air Facility, Washington, D.C., serving on IA orders with Commander, Task Force 56 agreed.

    Carter said there is no difference in how a Reserve yeoman operates compared to her active duty counterparts.

    “It’s good to know I’m contributing. I feel like I’m a part of what’s going on,” said Carter

    Debbink and Wheeler also spoke about ongoing issues like the Senior Enlisted Continuation Board, how a version of Perform-To-Serve is coming to the Reserves, Tricare, and Continuum of Service (CoS). CoS is an initiative that supports seamless transitions across active and Reserve Components (AC/RC) that will encourage a lifetime of Navy service.

    The 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy.
