Navy Fireman Joseph S. Dedam is a machinist’s mate serving aboard one of 40 Los Angeles-class submarines in the U.S. Navy. Hartford is one of two U.S. submarines that participated in the Navy’s biennial Ice Exercise (ICEX) above the Arctic Circle. The ICEX is designed to give submariners an opportunity to train and maintain readiness in the unique, ice covered waters of the Arctic Ocean. As a machinist’s mate, Dedam is a mechanic that specializes in both weapons and force protection. He also assists in driving the submarine. “I really enjoy the ports in foreign countries and the uncanny ability to deal with stress that a submarine tour gives you,”Dedam said. The Hartford sailors who participated in ICEX transited 7,000 miles through icebergs and frigid water to reach the exercise location in the Beaufort Sea. Navigating Arctic waters is no easy feat because of constant salinity and cold water changes, and the ice above makes surfacing a complicated task. During the five week ICEX, participants conducted multiple Arctic transits, surfaced near the North Pole, collected scientific data and learned from multiple training evolutions. The sailors practiced key skills and tested new Navy technology, tactics and procedures (TTPs) that will ensure that, not only Hartford can operate in the Arctic, but that other submarines and TTP developers in the force learn from their experience and feedback.Navy Fireman Joseph S. Dedam on board submarine.Photo provided/ U.S. NavyDuring the exercise, Dedam had the opportunity to be a primary planesman during ice ops. Hartford, with a crew of 142 sailors, is 360 feet long and weighs approximately 6,900 tons. A nuclear powered propulsion system helps push the submarine through the water at nearly 30 mph. Attack submarines are designed to hunt down and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships; strike targets ashore with cruise missiles; carry and deliver Navy SEALs; carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and engage in mine warfare. Dedam’s proudest accomplishment was the opportunity to be a primary planesman during ice ops. Submariners are some of the most highly trained and skilled people in the Navy. The training is highly technical and each crew has to be able to operate, maintain and repair every system or piece of equipment on board. Regardless of their specialty, everyone also has to learn how everything on the ship works and how to respond in emergencies to become “qualified in submarines” and earn the right to wear the coveted gold or silver dolphins on their uniform. When asked why he joined the military, Dedam said, “To get a chance to see more of the world, have the Navy pay for school and serve my country for at least one term.” Dedam’s hobbies include playing music and snowboarding. His goal is to pursue a career in law enforcement. ■FREE FREE COMMUNITY COMM UNITY LECTURE LECTURE COMMUNIT Y N E WSa, PRIN T I NGThe Best of Print + Online Now Only$149.99/Job Sign up at jobs.suncommunitynews.comTurning Back the Hands Tln'n~ng Bae~ the Hands of of Time: T~me: Facial Fac~ai Rejuvenation Rejuvenat~on Options Opt~onsThe Smartest Way to Hire Send Your Jobs to 100+ Job Boards Using ZipBoostTuesday, Jurn-ile June 26th Tu~sday, 261th 6:00 pm 6:00 pm — - 7:00 7:00 pm pm Lake lak~ Placid Piadd Conference Conf~r~m::e Center C~nit~r North 2634 Main Norith Elba Elba Room, Room, 2634 Main Street, S1tr~~1t,Lake la~~ Placid PiaddIncludes placement on ZipRecruiter.com3 Weeks in The Sun Zoned to reach over 30,000 homes via USPSThere are a number of options for anyone seeking to restore a more youthful appearance.

With an invocation met by Melissa Hodgson’s soaring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, the tribute was renewed by the county legion. Elizabethtown and Lewis American Legion members formed the core of color guard and gun salute brigades. “Help us to remember, with reverence, the valor and devotion of our departed comrades,” Tryon said as a crowd of veterans and tourists gathered. “Not only those whose bodies consecrate our country’s soil, but also those who sleep beyond the seas, and others whose resting places will not be known until that last day... teach us to honor them by ever cherishing the ideals for which they fought.” Tryon recalled the efforts, then and now, that built the mountain memorial. In 1929, work began after years of organization and planning. It was to be a construction crew primarily of veterans with an eternal flame placed at the top. Not all of the plans were fulfilled. But the road was formally dedicated in 1935 by then President Franklin D. Roosevelt to veterans of World War I. The masonry of the mountaintop castle, its stone summit stairway and the elevator were designed and built to with a pinnacle viewing hut atop Whiteface. The elevator makes it accessible to nearly everyone. In 1952, the Essex County American Legion voted to make the highway a memorial to vet-erans of all wars, Tryon said of the history.REPAIRS MADEWilmington Supervisor Randy Preston said investment in renovations and restoration through recent years helped preserve this treasure. “We’re very thankful to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for repairs to the highway and to the elevator,” Preston said at the ceremony. “It means a lot to these vets here today. I want to welcome everyone here today, and I especially want to thank you veterans who showed up.” After decades of traffic and very little upkeep,Shortly after the rededication to veterans of all wars at Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway, a streak of rainbow clouds, also called a “fire rainbow,” appeared above the mountain castle. A rare phenomenon, it is caused by sunlight refracting through ice crystals of high, thin clouds in the atmosphere. Photos by Kim Dedam Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury) Preston worked tenaciously alongside regional tourism and state agency leaders in 2012 to also spoke at the rededication on Sunday and draw attention to immense disrepair. In 2013, Gov. Andrew Cuomo allocated $12 million of New York Works funding to resurface the roadway and masonry of the highway’s drainage systems. Restoration of the road was completed in 2015.expressed the importance of upkeep here. A U.S. Navy veteran, Stec said the castle at Whiteface, at the top of the highway, was a fitting place to remember and thank veterans. “If you’re going to name something and show respect for veterans, you’ve got to take care of it.” The work at the castle is not done, Preston pointed out. Several cracks in mortar are evident on several fascades. And steel manufacturing of parts of the elevator is still a work in progress. “It’s all stainless steel,” Preston said of the mechanical structures that are being built now. Work on the new elevator is slated to be complete by fall 2019, Preston said. ■ — This story has been abridged for print.
