Vol. 63 No. 2 Friday, Jan. 13, 2006 Newly sworn-in Secretary of the Navy, Dr. Donald Winter, gets an orientation of the base’s layout enroute from Leeward to Windward from Maj. Gen. Jay Hood, USA, Commanding General of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, and CAPT Mark Leary, USN, Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay. Seated beside Maj. Gen. Hood is Col. Douglas Wadsworth, USMC, military aide to SECNAV.

Winter was sworn in as the 74th Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) on Jan. 3. Five days later, on Jan. 8, as part of his first official trip outside the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area, he was here visiting Guantanamo Bay. After arriving at the Leeward air terminal shortly before 10 a.m., SECNAV was greeted by Maj. Gen. Jay Hood, USA, Commanding General of Joint Task Force (JTF) Guantanamo, and CAPT Mark Leary, USN, Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Station (NAVSTA) Guantanamo Bay. His first stop after transiting the bay was the Commissions Building (the old McCalla Field air terminal), where he received a tour of the building, and briefings on the commissions process and other JTF issues. “It was a great honor to have the Secretary of the Navy visit us here at JTF GTMO,” said Maj. Gen. Hood. “We were pleased to provide him a first-hand look at our dynamic Joint operations, and to give him the opportunity to meet many of our outstanding Troopers who perform so well in this challenging environment.” SECNAV lunched with Sailors and Soldiers at Cafe Caribe in Camp America. After lunch, he toured Camp Delta and Camp Five, a state-of-the-art correctional facility, and inspected a unit in the Tierra Kay housing area, which has been converted to support the influx of unaccompanied Sailors and Soldiers who are supporting the JTF mission. Secretary Winter was also taken out to Camp X-Ray, the initial detainee detention facility which was hastily erected to house enemy combatants for a very limited period of time while the present detainee compound was being constructed. Camp X-Ray, now overgrown with vegetation, has been closed since early 2002, but images of Camp X-Ray continue to be used by media outlets. Following his familiarization with the JTF mission, SECNAV was briefed on NAVSTA issues, before departing the base in the late afternoon. “This trip has been very informative for me,” said Secretary Winter as he concluded his visit to Guantanamo Bay. “As the new Secretary, it was very important for me to see Guantanamo and get a better understanding of the important work being done here. I am impressed by the superb professionalism and dedication of Sailors, Soldiers and dedicated civilians I met today. “I am proud to be part of the Navy-Marine Corps team, and I am grateful for the service of all the men and women assigned to Guantanamo Bay, with both the Joint Task Force and the station support effort. Keep up the good work!”

Designed to help retain Sailors with the critical skills required to meet fleet needs, the SRB program has proven to be very successful at increasing retention in undermanned fields and has ensured personnel readiness needs are met. “The goal of SRB is to ensure our mission readiness by ensuring Sailors with the right skill mix are available to the fleet,” said Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. John C. Harvey, Jr. “The bonuses are an extremely flexible, positive and ultimately effective tool for ensuring Sailors reenlist in ratings or targeted Navy Enlisted Classifications where we need them most,” said Harvey. The Navy continuously monitors SRB reenlistment activity and balances approved SRB reenlistment requests against the needs of the fleet for specific skills and funding levels. The criteria used for determining which enlisted skills receive an SRB includes current and projected skill needs versus total manning levels, reenlistment rates and category of enlistment, current career field force structure changes, and inputs from enlisted community managers. The SRB award levels may therefore be increased or decreased based upon specific needs of the Navy. Those award levels that decrease will become effective Feb. 15. Sailors may reenlist for SRB any time within the same fiscal year as their end of active obligated service. “It’s important to point out that Sailors who would see a decrease in their SRB with these changes have the opportunity to reenlist at the higher current rate within the next 30 days, if they are eligible,” said Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Terry D. Scott. “We are using SRB for what it’s designed to do keep Sailors in the critical areas where we need them,” said Scott. The SRB program, combined with the Perform to Serve program, is very successful at encouraging skilled Sailors in overmanned fields to seek conversion to undermanned ratings and maintaining force balance. “SRB is about correctly shaping the force to enable operational readiness and providing the right incentives for Sailors to serve where we need them most. By carefully managing award levels, adjusting as necessary, we help ensure that the proper skill mix exists to keep the Fleet strong,” said Harvey. By Dan Steber, Naval Safety Center Public AffairsNavy enjoys mishap-free holidaysNORFOLK, Va. (NNS) — The Naval Safety Center reported Jan. 11 that the Navy was mishap-free during the recent holiday periods. The Navy, so far, has a positive safety string that has lasted 22 days, including a critical hurdle of mishap-free holidays, which may signal a change in the trend and end a fiscal year (FY) ’06 bad start. “We hope our people have seen and heeded the traffic-safety messages we’ve been sending out,” said Capt. Bill Glenn, head of Shore Safety Programs at the Naval Safety Center. “The CNO’s NAVADMIN in early December sent a strong message to leaders and Sailors around the fleet. It appears that we’re beginning to see signs of improvement. The second quarter of FY 06 has started out right, but we must continue that good performance to get back on track,” said Glenn. During an interview Jan. 9 with Naval Media Center, Detachment Norfolk, for Navy and Marine Corps News, Commander, Naval Safety Center, Rear Adm. George Mayer said his people and safety professionals around the fleet have been looking for specific answers to the spike in mishaps from first quarter FY 06 but can’t find any clear culprits that explain the abnormally high number in such a short span. “The usual causes can be found,” said Mayer. “Speed, no seatbelts, loss of control, lack of attention to the road, and impaired driving, whether from alcohol or fatigue. I urge all Sailors and Marines to review their driving habits, to watch their speed, and to plan their drive before a long trip. That plan might require more frequent rest stops. They must avoid distracted driving and road rage. The bottom line is that whether the drive is back and forth to work or a long drive home to visit family, your attention has to be on the road—that must be the focus.” “Take risk management home with you, identify the hazards on the road, assess the risk, and take actions to avoid mishaps,” he added. “We can overcome a poor first quarter, but it will take all Sailors and Marines doing their part.” The traffic-safety department at the Naval Safety Center is pleased with the latest positive safety news, but they are wary about predicting the end to a bad run of mishaps. The staff wants to remind everyone, “We’re only as good as our last day’s performance.”

Sollock, MC, USN, assumed command of U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, from CAPT John S. Edmondson, MC, USN. Maj. Gen. Jay Hood, USA, Commanding General, Joint Task Force Guantanamo, was the ceremony’s guest speaker. Edmondson has headed the hospital since July 2003. He was recognized for his exemplary performance, and was awarded his third Legion of Merit Medal during the ceremony. The citation reads in part, “Captain Edmondson’s inspiring leadership and exemplary performance significantly improved the quality of health care for residents of Guantanamo Bay. He led his staff through all stages of preparation for the first successful Joint Commission Accreditation of Heathcare Organizations for the 2005 revised survey, scoring an unprecedented 100 percent on both the Hospital and the Home Health surveys.” Awarded by the President and signed by VADM D.C. Arthur, Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, the citation continues, saying, “Displaying impressive leadership and innovation, he re-focused the Naval Hospital’s vision, successfully linking the dual missions of supporting deployment readiness and peacetime health care to all entrusted to his care.” As he said farewell to Guantanamo Bay, CAPT Edmondson thanked everyone who had contributed to the success of the command, and most especially the people who worked for him. “It’s been a brief two and a half years, but some of the most interesting and challenging years in my memory,” said Edmonson. “To the men and women of the naval Hospital and the Joint Medical Group, your hard work, your dedication to each other, our patients and the community, have been a constant source of inspiration to me.” CAPT Edmondson’s new assignment will be as head of the Future Operations Division of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. CAPT Sollock comes to Guantanamo Bay from the Medical Inspector General’s Office where he served as the senior physician inspector. A native of Houston, Texas, Sollock was commissioned as a Naval Officer in 1979 following his internship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Rice University in Houston, and completed a joint Ph.D. and M.D. program sponsored by Rice University and Baylor College of CAPT Ronald Sollock addresses his troops after assuming command of U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay.

5 Friday, Jan. 13, 2006By Paul Schoenfeld, Natural Resources ManagerThe Great Blue Heron ( Ardea herodias ) is a member of a large group of aquatic birds known as long-legged waders. Great blues are the most common and abundant of all herons with a range that covers all of North America, south into Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Galapagos Islands. These birds are migratory in the northern parts of their range and will migrate as far as South America. However, if open water is available for their feeding, they have been known to spend the winter as far north as southern Alaska. Great blues are large birds standing over 4 ft. tall with wing-spans of 5 to 6 ft. They are mostly gray with a pale yellow spike-shaped bill. They have a gray-brown throat and whitish head with a prominent black eyebrow that extends well beyond the head when the bird is in breeding plumage. There is an all white phase of this bird called the great white heron found in southern Florida, the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Caribbean that was once thought to be a separate species. Likewise, a heron called “Wurdemanns” heron is an intermediate color phase between great blues and great whites found where the ranges overlap. These birds are all the same species. Great blues are also often mistaken for cranes, however, herons fly with their necks tucked in while cranes fly with their necks outstretched. This is an easily identifiable field characteristic when both species are seen in flight. Great Blues are colonial nesters, meaning they nest in large colonies (called rooker-Great Blue Heron is a long-legged wader Creature Feature ies) along with several hundred other mated pairs. Rookeries are usually in trees located in wetlands such as mangrove forests and cypress swamps or on forested islands. Nests are very large, often 3 ft. across, and built high in the trees to avoid nest predators. Anywhere from 3 to 7 eggs are laid and both parents incubate the eggs and feed the chicks. Young herons fledge (leave the nest) in about 2 months. Great blues breed between March and May in the northern parts of their range and between November and April for southern populations. Great blues are predators and feed mainly in shallow waters. Their diet is as varied as the habitats they occupy but consists primarily of fish. Other prey items include many different reptiles and amphibians including snakes, shrimp, crabs, crayfish, and various aquatic insects. In inland and upland parts of their range, they are known to eat small mammals and birds along with various insects. Great blues are visual predators and stand motionless waiting for prey to come close enough to ambush. They strike quickly with their large powerful and sharp bill, subdue their prey, and swallow it whole. They feed primarily at dusk and dawn but like most predators, these birds are opportunistic and can be seen feeding any time of day or night. Great blue heron populations are stable. Unlike many other herons, egrets, and other long-legged waders, great blue populations were not persecuted by uncontrolled market hunting for the plume trade of the earlier 1900’s. This combined with their adaptability to many different habitats, resulted in the maintenance of viable populations throughout their range.Great Blue Heron ( Ardea herodias )

Although we were at the back of the check-in line, noone complained about letting us in first, so her leg could be looked at. The gentleman in charge of checking us in called a medic and helped my mother until she (the medic) came. I wish I could tell you their names, but they will know who they are, and I just want them to know how much we appreciate all the kindness they showed us. — Susan Slater
