The annual CNO Environmental Awards program recognizes Navy people, ships and installations for their exceptional environmental stewardship. The Fiscal Year 2005 competition categories included natural resources conservation, cultural resources management, environmental quality, pollution prevention, environmental restoration and environmental excellence in weapon system acquisition. The CNO award winners are now competing for the Secretary of Navy awards and then the Secretary of Defense awards. CDR Jeff Hayhurst, NAVSTA Executive Officer praised the Environmental Department team (ENV) saying, “While supporting the station and the build-up for Operation Enduring Freedom, the ENV made significant progress in all aspects of environmental management. Achievements include implementation of the Environmental Management System (EMS), improvements in wastewater systems, installation of new pollution prevention equipment, and establishing erosion/sedimentation control for stormwater management.” Additional programs established by the ENV included doubling the number of base clean-up days and upgrading the adopt-aroad and adopt-a-beach programs.

The U.S. Navy Memorial, located on Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington, D.C., is a national memorial that honors those who served, and are serving, in America’s Sea Services – Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine, but the heart of the U.S. Navy Memorial is the Navy Log. “The Navy Log is the heart and soul of the Navy Memorial because it represents people not hardware.” said Retired Master Chief Navy Counselor (SW) David Michael, the director of the Navy Log. “Their the backbone of the Navy. The Navy is people, not ships and aircraft.” The Navy Log is the permanent public registry where Sea Service members and veterans can record their service information – name, duty stations, awards, photos and memories. Family members and friends can record service information for veterans who are deceased or those who are unable to record their own information. The Navy Log may be viewed at the U.S. Navy Memorial, or via the Internet at www.lonesailor.org The goal of the Memorial is to record the service history of all eligible uniformed individuals and veterans. “The real reason to enroll in the Navy Log is to show Navy pride and to record your service for history,” said Michael.

Sampson Elementary School.Photo by Tracye Miller Volunteers from the Office for the Administrative Review of the Detention of Enemy Combatants (OARDEC) cleaned, bagged and disposed of trash at the Hicacal and Condi beaches on the Leeward side of the base this past weekend. CAPT Charles Salsman, USN, the unit’s officer in charge, said that NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay supports everyone who comes here in a special way, and OARDEC wanted to return the favor. More than 100 bags of trash were collected from almost four miles of beachfront and hauled to the windward side where final disposal took place. Volunteers also scrubbed the first few feet of surf to remove any broken glass. OARDEC received help from MWR, NAVSTA Harbor Master, NAVSTA Environmental Office, Port Ops and DEL-JEN to complete the task. Hicacal and Condi beaches reside in a “marine replenishment zone” and are also adjacent to a live-fire range. Turtle nest-OARDEC removes debris from Leeward beachesBy LTC John Lilly, USA, OARDECFifth-grade students salute old West, celebrate ‘Cowboy Day’The spirit of the wild west was alive at W.T. Sampson Elementary School as fifth grade students saluted the Cowboys of the old West. Teacher Beverly Zwiebel has conducted “Cowboy Day” for the past six years as a way to drive home the lessons from the fifth grade’s language Arts and Social Studies unit on the old west. Cowboy Day was held Thursday, Jan. 12, with a morning assembly for all the students at the elementary school. All fifthgraders were decked out in western garb. They performed a Spanish Cowboy song (Cielito Lindo), and boot-scooted their way through a country line dance. Then it was off to prepare a Cowboy lunch of buffalo and beans, and “branding iron fry bread.” When Mrs. Zwiebel showed off a package of hot dogs, the class unanimously exclaimed, “looks just like Buffalo!” The cooking; session gave Mrs Zwiebel and her fifth-grade teacher colleague Bill Moreland a chance to stress the importance of accurate measuring, and safe food handling practices. The cowboy celebration is close to the heart of Beverly Zweibel. She grew up on a ranch in Nebraska, a place that gave her a deep respect for the old cowboy ways. ing occurs on the beaches and there is a manatee-protected area adjacent to the area. Wildflowers abound in the dunes behind the beaches as do native shrubs and palm trees. Manta rays, a shark, sea turtles, needlefish, and stingrays were also observed. On the downside, the “no-seeums” at Hicacal seem to have extremely large teeth compared to those on the Windward side and are out all day and night. Gnats are also a nuisance on the beaches. Visitors are not permitted beyond the dunes because of the hazard of possible unexploded ordnance. For anyone visiting these beaches, the OARDEC clean-up crew recommends bringing plenty of water, adequate sun protection and insect repellent. OARDEC is a total force organization consisting of active duty, reserve and guard personnel from the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy and civilian force. It receives direction from and reports to the Deputy Secretary of Defense, and is managed by the U.S. Navy.

Other accomplishments included improvements in the operation of the Station Sewage Treatment Plants. “The Environmental Protection Council has quarterly meetings which provide all base stakeholders with opportunities for mission critical input to the EMS and other environmental management activities,” said Burns. “Additionally, new personnel indoctrinations familiarize command, tenant command and our dependents with environmental management programs.” The ENV has also engaged with the base community at large through a variety of displays and demonstrations set up concurrently with safety standdowns, Earth Day, National Night Out, spouses’ seminars, and other command-sanctioned events.

Complicated tax forms, W-2s, 1099s, tax brackets, deductions, standard or itemized; all are designed to separate you from your money each year on April 15. Fortunately, Armed Forces personnel, retirees, and their families have ready access to free tax assistance. Active duty personnel can find answers to relevant tax questions online in IRS Publication 3, ‘Armed Forces’ Taxes Guide,’ or they can request a hard copy of the publication. This guide explains military tax issues, such as filing tax extensions when stationed outside the United States and Puerto Rico, deductible expenses for a permanent change of station, and income that is tax-free (such as Basic Allowance for Housing and combat-zone exclusion). Imminent danger/hostile fire pay, a reenlistment bonus, and other income are tax free for combat-zone service. Even if personnel serve in a combat zone for only one day of the month, pay for that entire month is tax free. When it comes to filing taxes, some people want to fill out their own, so the IRS web site has all the forms and instructions needed. “You can download and print off copies of tax forms and instructions if you want to do your taxes by hand — the old stubby-pencil method,” says LCDR Keith Brau, Office of the Judge Advocate General, Washington Navy Yard, D.C. The site also has free software and free e-filing at IRS Free File “It’s becoming very popular, and the IRS is actively promoting it as the way to go now and for the future,” says Brau. Other free services at the IRS include TeleTax, TaxFax, and talking to real people over the phone or at an IRS office. For those who dread filling out tax forms, whether digitally or with a stubby pencil, the IRS trains volunteers to prepare taxes for active duty personnel, retirees, and their dependents, free of charge. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) representatives are collateral duty personnel on ships, especially aircraft carriers, and on Navy and Marine Corps bases. Trained volunteers at our military tax sites will prepare the tax returns; federal and state; for free and electronically file them for free,” says Brau. “In a few cases, we are not able to send returns electronically, so paper returns must be used.” To have taxes prepared by a VITA rep, bring complete tax records, such as dependents’ Social Security cards, W-2 and 1099 forms from employers and banks, and paperwork for any special circumstances, such as selling a home. “For complex returns, bring a copy of the prior year’s tax return,” says Brau. A thorn in the side of American taxpayers since the tea-tossing incident, the idea of paying taxes has been fair game for American humorists, who have added some levity to our annual tax rite. But as Benjamin Franklin observed, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.”Taxes are no laughing matterBy Carole W. Butler for LIFELines NORFOLK, Va. (NNS) — Naval anti-terrorism and force protection (ATFP) took a step forward Jan. 13, as the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) was officially established in a ceremony conducted at their headquarters at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va. NECC will consolidate the current missions and functions of the 1st Naval Construction Division, Naval Expeditionary Logistics Support Force and Maritime ForceNavy Expeditionary Combat Command stands upBy JOSN Katrina Scampini, Fleet Public Affairs Center AtlanticProtection Command. NECC will also serve as functional commander in control of manning, training, equipping and organizing forces that will execute ATFP, shore-based logistical support and construction missions across the joint operational spectrum. “I’m proud to work with the men and women who work in expeditionary operations,” said Rear Adm. Donald Bullard, NECC’s first commander. “They are doing wonderful work for our country.” Between 40,000 and 50,000 Sailors will join the command in phases over the next two years to ensure current operations are not disrupted. The command will oversee units ranging from bomb-disposal crews, expeditionary logistics specialists, the naval coastal warfare groups and the master-at-arms forces. The NECC will also provide the 5,000 to 7,000 Sailors supporting the Army and Marine Corps in the Middle East with proper training for these nontraditional jobs. “It’s time to recognize the need of the young men and women at war on the dirt,” said Bullard. “The enemy is always evolving. We need an organization that understands this and can get ahead of them.”

This is a large group of animals representing more than 6,000 species and 13,000 fossil records. Echinoderms are characterized by radial symmetry and a central mouth. They are simple creatures, lacking a brain and complex sensing organs. Brittle stars are spiny, hardskinned, long-armed echinoderms that live on the rocky sea floor from shallow waters to depths of 20,000 feet. There are more than 2,000 species of brittle stars worldwide and they are close relatives of the starfish. They have five long, thin, spiny arms that radiate from a flat central disk. Tube feet on the arms sense light and odors. Most are 3 inches or less in diameter and they vary in color. They are usually a dark reddish color during the daytime and change color at night to a blackish brown and gray.Brittle stars lack brain, sensing organsBy Paul Schoenfeld, Natural Resources Manager Photo by Mike GiangrassoA baby brittle star.Brittle stars get their name because they are in fact, brittle, often losing limbs but able to fully regenerate them. This is a mechanism used to escape fish and other predators. If the broken arm is attached to a significant portion of the central disc, an entire new brittle star may be regenerated. This allows Brittle stars to reproduce asexually by self-division. They also reproduce sexually with two reproductive outlets at the base of each arm. These 10 outlets are used for spawning in open water. Brittle stars hide during the day in dark crevices. They are best seen at night when they emerge to feed on plankton, detritus, and small marine animals such as worms. Two of the best known species are the green brittle star found from Massachusetts to Brazil, and the European brittle star. The most widespread species is the long-armed brittle star which is grayish, blue and highly luminescent. However, the reticulate brittle star is most often seen in GTMO waters and is found off the coast of Florida and throughout the Caribbean. Scientists have recently discovered a species of brittle star whose outer skeleton is covered with crystalline lenses, working as an all-seeing eye. This compound eye is an integral part of the calcium skeleton and allows brittle stars to detect predators and seek out hiding places. This is the first of its kind observed in nature and is superior to any manufactured lenses because it naturally compensates for physical defects associated with fabricated lenses. Researchers believe studying this brittle star has important scientific implications. Knowing how this natural optical system works may lead to technological advances in optical network chip design.
