to $80 million a note of
priority and that we are do-
ing what's important to you
and your families."
During the meeting, the
secretary engaged an audi-
ence member's concern
about the transferability of
benefits included in the new
9/11 G.I. Bill.
"Right now, the VA is
saying that the new bill will
be used as a retention tool. A
lot of senior people, whose
families bore the brunt of
post 9-11, will not get this
benefit due to retirement of
high year tenure. Will any-
thing be grand fathered [as
far as ability to use benefits]


for those servicemembers,"
asked Senior Chief Duncan
Smith.
"We took a strong posi-
tion to add transferability to
this new bill," said Winter.
"The bill itself wasn't de-
signed as a retention tool,
but we will take a look at
the terms of the bill and
ensure we do not do a dis-
service to anyone, especially
those who have served," he
added.
Winter also took more
questions from other audi-
ence members, including
members of the civil service
community about IT infra-
structure security issues and
access.
Prior to departing, the
secretary thanked the ser-
vicemembers and all present
fortheir service to our nation
and lauded their efforts in


our nation's war on terror.
"In air miles, GTMO is
not that far from the U.S., but
in many aspects, it is more
isolated and confined than
many of our other overseas
locations. I understand that
what you are doing, what
your challenges are and the
difficulty associated with
serving here, and for that,
I thank you," said Winter.
"One profound lesson that
I have learned [in this posi-
tion] is the real difference
between our military and
those [militaries] of others
nations and it is sitting in
this room today! All I can
tell you is how proud I am
of you."
The SECNAV and his
team immediately departed
GTMO to visit the South-
ern Partnership Station in
Nicaragua.

The plot chronicles the romantic
misadventures of nine individuals
in their twenties and thirties. Set
in Baltimore, the common thread
of the story is that one person
in each relationship is more
enamored with the other person
and vice versa. At the core of these
multiple stories is Gigi (Ginnifer
Goodwin), a young woman who
repeatedly misinterprets the signs
that men give her about their level
of interest in her. After a rejection
from Conor (Kevin Connolly),
Gigi begins getting dating advice
from the romantically and
sexually promiscuous Alex (Justin
Long), the manager of a bar and a
friend of Conor's.
