Vol. 63 No. 33 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006 Photo by MC1 Igo WorduFirefighters from Fire Station #1 perform a routine rescue drill at Phillips Park. They used the same technique to rescue two stranded swimmers after they went snorkeling on August 9 at Phillips Park. It took rescue personnel more than three hours to bring both swimmers to safety.Dramatic rescue at Phillips ParkBy MC1 Igo Wordu, Public AffairsIt was a close call for two stranded swimmers as Naval Station rescue personnel raced against time to haul them to safety. The incident occurred around the Phillips Park dive area at approximately 5 p.m. Aug. 9. Firefighters who aided the rescue said the swimmers were part of a group of people who went to the dive park to snorkel. Some members of the swim party noticed that two of the swimmers were missing and notified base security immediately. Rescue personnel including the Base security, Ports operations, Coast Guard, and the Dive locker launched an extensive search around the bay area for the missing swimmers. As nighttime approached, it became difficult for rescue personnel to search for the missing swimmers. “The situation became desperate because it was getting harder for us to see,” said Devon Smith, one of the fire Captains from Fire Station #1. Someone at Cable beach, who saw the missing swimmers clinging to a rock under an 80 ft. cliff near the lighthouse, notified base security. Two firefighters were thenContinued on page 6

Command points of contact and Navy medical treatment facility (MTF) EFMP coordinators can assist service and family members with the enrollment process. Sailors may be reluctant to enroll because of misconceptions that EFMP enrollment may limit assignments and career advancement, or preclude family members from accompanying sponsors on overseas tours. These negative perceptions are not supported by fact. Sailors enrolled in the EFMP have always received equal consideration for accompanied assignments and for promotions. The Navy Exceptional Family Member Program mailing address is — Navy Personnel Command / Exceptional Family Member Program (PERS-451) 5720 Integrity Drive, Millington, TN 38055-6210 / 1-866-8275672 The Navy’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is designed to assist sailors by addressing the special needs of their exceptional family members (EFM) during the assignment process. Special needs include any special medical, dental, mental health, developmental or educational requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment or assistive technology devices and services. In the Navy EFM Program, the primary function is the Personnel Function. The Navy EFMP Coordinators are located at the medical treatment facility, not at the Fleet and Family Support Centers (all Fleet and Family Support Centers have an EFMP liaison). The Navy EFMP Coordinators serve both Personnel and Family Support functions, but with an emphasis on the Personnel function. Personnel Function — The goal of the EFMP is to ensure the special needs of the EFM can be met at a new assignment location. EFMP enrollment information enables Navy detailers to proactively consider a family member’s special need requirements during the assignment process and to pinpoint the assignment to a location with appropriate resources that address the special needs. Successful implementation requires up-to-date enrollment information and extensive coordination among the personnel, medical, and educational communities. EFMP enrollment is mandatory and required immediately upon identification of a special need.

3 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006America will remain on the offensive against al Qaeda and nations that support terror groups, President Bush said on Aug. 14. Bush met with Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine Gen. Peter Pace and other members of his national security team at the Pentagon and the State Department. The group discussed progress in the global war on terror and national security transformation during the series of meetings. During a news conference at the State Department following the meetings, Bush said Iran must stop its support for terror. He also said militias and other groups must disarm. He said the Middle East is at a pivotal moment in history. “The death and destruction we see shows how determined the extremists are to stop just and modern societies from emerging in the region,” he said. “Yet millions of people in Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere are equally determined to live in peace and freedom. They have tired of the false promises and grand illusions of radical extremists.” He said the United States’ “freedom agenda” will advance peace in the region. “We know that free nations are America’s best partners for peace and the only true anchors for stability,” he said. “So we’ll continue to support reformers inside and outside governments who are working to build the institutions of liberty. We’ll continue to confront terrorist organizations and their sponsors who destroy innocent lives. We’ll continue to work for the day when a democratic Israel and a democratic Palestine are neighbors in a peaceful and secure Middle East.” The president called the U.N. Security Council resolution on Lebanon an important step to help bring an end to the violence between Israel and the terror group Hezbollah. The resolution calls for all nations to help Lebanon restore sovereignty through all Lebanese territory. “As well, the resolution is intended to stop Hezbollah from acting as a state within a state,” Bush said. He said Hezbollah is responsible for the conflict, but that Iran and Syria share some of that responsibility. “The regime in Iran provides Hezbollah with financial support, weapons and training,” the president said. “Iran has made clear that it seeks the destruction of Israel. We can only imagine how much more dangerous this conflict would be if Iran had the nuclear weapon it seeks.” Syria also sponsors the terror group and allows Iranian weapons to enter Lebanon and Hezbollah’s leaders to operate out of Damascus, the president said. “Syria supports Hezbollah because it wants to undermine Lebanon’s democratic government and regain its position of dominance in the country,” Bush said. “That would be a great tragedy for the Lebanese people and for the cause of peace in the Middle East.” America has worked to promote peace, freedom and stability in the region, but terror groups and regimes worked against that ideal, Bush said. “We saw the consequences on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists brought death and destruction to our country, killing nearly 3,000 of our citizens,” he said. The United States will continue to push the freedom agenda, but it will not be easy, the president said. “The way forward’s going to be difficult. It will require more sacrifice,” he said. “But we can be confident of the outcome because we know and understand the unstoppable power of freedom.”By Jim Garamone, American Forces Press ServiceAmerica will continue 'Freedom Agenda’ Bush President George BushBy MC1 Robert Lamb, Public AffairsTravelers face new restrictions when flying Travelers face tighter security and longer lines because of new airport rules in the U.S. after a plot to blow up airliners bound for the U.S. was uncovered recently. "The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has implemented a series of security measures some visible and some not visible to ensure the security of the traveling public and the Nation’s transportation system," said Mark Veditz, AMC Terminal Manager. TSA and the terminal on the Leeward side has immediately implemented the following changes to airport screening procedures: Beverages purchased at the snack shack must be consumed before boarding because they will not be permitted onboard the aircraft. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has put out detailed information about what can and cannot be put into luggage and what cannot be carried on an aircraft. The rules and regulations that the TSA puts out include flying in and out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. What can’t I pack in my carry-on bag? The new rules ban almost all liquids, creams and gels from being carried aboard flights. Those items must be put in your checked bags. If you are in doubt about an item, pack it in a checked bag or leave it home. The latest list of liquids and gels is constantly being updated, almost daily. You can check out www.tsa.gov or contact the base terminal at 6305 for an update before you travel. Current exceptions include baby formula and breast milk; prescription medicine, properly labels with a name that matches the passenger’s ticket; up to 8 oz. of liquid or gel low blood sugar treatment and up to 4 oz. of non-prescription liquid medications, including such previously prohibited items as cough syrup, eye drops, contact lens solution and nasal spray. Travelers may also expect delays when traveling.


4 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006Plant nursery beautifies Guantanamo BayGuantanamo Bay’s plant nursery has been providing base beautification for years and with the help of volunteers, the plant nursery now has more variety for local ‘plant lovers’ to choose from. But to take advantage of the services provided by the nursery, residents need to be aware of the rules and requirements and the importance of volunteering in the continuation of the nursery. Roberta Stanley, with the Housing Office, says one must be a permanent-party resident to get a plant card that gives access to the nursery. After verifying residency, the Housing Office issues a punch card, for a one-year period, representing the months of January through December. Each resident is allowed one card and can only choose one plant each month. However, some plants count for more than a month depending on the height and how common the species is. Amelia Smith, plant nursery manager, takes pride in making GTMO beautiful and is proud of the array of plants the nursery now has. “It’s about giving back to the community,” smiled Smith. “Right now, the nursery has the most variety since the program started. One big change is we now try to grow the plants we dispense to the public at the plant nursery, so that in the future, we have stock plants on site.” Since the nursery’s stock relies on donations from residents and whatever plants the volunteers find to propagate, continued donations and volunteering from the community is vital. “We want the public to know we are collecting cuttings and seeds,” said Smith. “So, please let us know when you trim yourStory and Photos by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, Public Affairsplants, so that we can propagate them. We always look for plants such as gardenia and plumeria, but we take anything that can be propagated by cutting or from seeds.” The kindness of the public has been great. We have people donating potted plants or cuttings and that is how we are able to have so much to offer to the public.” The nursery also provides flower for ceremonies, events and various locations around the base. “We also supply plants for base ceremonies and events,” said Smith. “For example during a change of command. I am contacted and we supply plants we have set aside just for that purpose.” The nursery is open to plant cardholders every first and third Saturday of each month from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Smith adds that residents are not allowed to take cuttings or plants from neighboring yards of newly moved residents. Cuttings offered by neighbors are acceptable, but if they move, helping yourself to plants is prohibited. There are currently 12 volunteers that help Smith maintain the nursery but she is always looking for more help. “Volunteers are always welcome,” said Smith. “And you can sign up with the Red Cross. Also, any hours you work are documented and forwarded to the Red Cross, if you need credit for your time.” “People don’t realize how much hard work goes into it, but if you enjoy working with dirt, and plants, you can learn a lot.” Those interested in volunteering or getting a plant card can contact the Housing Office at 4721 or the Red Cross at 5060. This coral-colored hibiscus is the Hibiscus rosa sinensis.An unusual hibiscus hybrid. Amelia Smith adjusts the water sprinkler at the plant nursery on Sherman Ave. Smith has been tending to the plants at the nursery for almost 5 years.

My job is to ensure that the NAVSTA GTMO Admin Office runs in a smooth and efficient manner. Our office is responsible for all administrative functions. We operate a mail room, a communications center (where we send out and receive message traffic), and we track all incoming and outgoing command correspondence.Why did you choose to come to GTMO?I chose GTMO because it was a hard fill for the detailer at the time and I knew it was hot year-round, so I took it. I figured it would be a good place to go for my last duty station. Last Duty Station? Helicopter Sea Combat Wing, Jacksonville, FL. How long have you been in the Navy? I have been in the Navy for 18 years. What are your favorite aspects of GTMO on both a professional and leisure level? I really like the professionalism here. The group of young Sailors that I am working with now, are the most professional Sailors I have ever had working for me. "Yes, Senior Chief," or "No, Senior Chief," are the responses I hear instead of "yeah," or "no." Also, it's unbelievable how nice everyone is. I missed my family so much when I first got here but thanks to my wonderful sponsor, Chief Doherty, and my new friends, I have been able to cope with my loneliness.Welcome to the GTMO Community The local 'Shipshape' program is available to all GTMO residents (active duty, family members, civilian, and contract personnel). Running from Aug. 16 to Oct. 4, this 8-week program reflects the current state of knowledge on weight loss.

6 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006Two snorklers rescued at Phillips Park...Continued from page 1Photo by MC1 Igo Wordu lowered down the cliff on a tow line, to bring the both swimmers to safety at around 10 p.m. According to Smith, the swimmers drifted a good 1,000 or more yards from the dive point at Phillips Park to the bottom of the cliff where they were rescued. “As soon as they entered the water, they knew they were in trouble as they kept drifting further into the open bay,” Smith said. Although they struggled to swim ashore, their efforts were futile against the strong currents. So what began as a routine snorkeling turned out to a 5-hour struggle for their dear lives.” “When we arrived on scene, both swimmers were at the bottom of this cliff,” Smith said pointing down to the spot where they swimmers were located. Water temperature must have been around 40 – 50 degrees and the waves were strong on that night. These elements were not conducive for the swimmers and we had to act quickly to save them” Both swimmers managed to swim to shore soon after they drifted past the lighthouse towards cable beach. However, they were unable to clime the 80 ft. cliff. Initial attempts to reach the swimmers with a boat were unsuccessful. The Navy divers, who would have been able to aid their rescue, were unable to get closer to the swimmers because the water was too shallow for the boat. That was when the fire department stepped in. “I think the response time was crucial,” commented Smith. “It was chaotic around here and everybody tried anything the could to help the swimmers. CDR Beran, advises base residents to take extra care when it comes to water sports or recreation. “There are safety considerations in everything that we do and in every recreational activity available here at GTMO,” said Beran. “From sunscreen to protect your skin while outside for a day at the beach, to staying aware of tidal and surge conditions for swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers to hydrating while rock climbing, running and jogging away think safety!” “Judging from the information we have about these divers, I don’t believe there’s any way they would have been able to avoid the situation,” said Smith. “They went out there and everything seemed normal. There weren’t any signs of what laid ahead. For-One of the firefighters from Fire Station #1, who responded to the incident, points to the bottom of this 80 ft. cliff where the swimmers were rescued from on August 9. Both swimmers struggled against strong currents before they drifted more than 1,000 yards from where they started snorkeling. Birth Announcement Kristy Sercer announces the birth of her son, Kaden Louis Sercer, on June 8.tunately, they had a people who were able to call for help. I would advise anybody who wishes to dive, snorkel or swim around GTMO, to always use the buddy system.” Both swimmers were taken to the Naval Hospital where they were treated and released. This guide provides basic information on nutrition that can assist you when you actually begin making new nutrition choices. Weight control is difficult for many individuals. This program will provide those who attend with the best available tools in order to be successful. ShipShape Coordinators at the local level ( Command Fitness Leader) are encouraged to implement their programs as a collaborative effort with the Nutrition Division, Psychology Service, Physical Therapy Department, MWR Fitness Facility, or other local resources whenever such expertise can enhance the quality of the program. For further information regarding the ShipShape program, contact your Primary Care Manager, Command Fitness Leader or Lt Cmr. Huff at 72102 ShipShape weight loss ...


7 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006The Guantanamo Bay Naval Hospital’s Cultural Diversity Committee celebrated their one year anniversary with the observance of Jamaican Independence Day on Wednesday, Aug. 2. The committee prepared a short program that included a presentation of Letter’s of Appreciation by the Naval Hospitals Commanding Officer, CAPT Ronald Sollock, to the hospital galley staff for their continued support preparing special meals for the Cultural Diversity Committee’s observances of Jamaican Independence Day, African American History Month, Asian Pacific Heritage Month, Hispanic Heritage Month and Cuban-American Friendship Day. Following the awards presentation, an oration regarding the history of Jamaican Independence Day was eloquently delivered by Mrs. Maxine Thomas. A cake and ribbon cutting ceremony took place near the committee’s display showcase in the hospital galley soon after the awards presentation. The hospital galley staff prepared and served a delicious Jamaican themed meal in keeping with the Jamaican Independence Day observance. This celebration was very well received by all of those who attended. Cultural diversity is the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole. The term 'Cultural Diversity' is also used to refer to multiculturalism within an organization.

8 Friday, Aug. 18, 2006The Critical Days of Summer campaign is in full swing, and safe bicycling is a key area for reducing mishaps this year. It is important to identify hazards, plan rides, and set risk controls—like wearing the right clothes and a helmet, and mapping your route—to make sure a ride is completed safely. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that, in 2005, 720 bicycle riders were killed in collisions with cars and trucks. Another 45,000 riders around the country were injured that year. These incidents aren’t restricted to civilians. Each year, Navy and Marine Corps commands report several deaths and a number of injuries. Take for example, a case of two Navy riders—one a lieutenant junior grade. The lead rider was approaching a green light in Jacksonville, Fla. when he suddenly stopped without giving a hand signal. The JG stopped so quickly she was ejected headfirst over the bike. She missed two ship movements because of a broken wrist and lost three teeth. It could have been worse, but these riders were smart enough to wear helmets, preventing a severe head injury. In another case, a first class petty officer in Leonardo, N.J., decided to ride his bicycle one night down an unlit pier—despite a base instruction to the contrary. Within 100 feet from where the ride started, the front tire lodged in a railroad track, flipping him and his bicycle. He landed on his left shoulder, breaking his left clavicle. The Sailor stayed in the medical ward for four days. He went on 13 days of convalescent leave after the ship returned to its homeport. Riding safe and being safe is a process. Like any process, planning is key. Riders can help by wearing helmets and bright clothing to make themselves more visible, while riding during the day or certainly adding lights or reflectors for nightime, use prepared bike paths whenever available, and be aware of traffic. The Naval Safety Center has a list of tips available on their website at www.safetycenter.navy.mil/safetips/a-m/ bicycling.htm that will help keep riders safe and provide food for thought: — There are 85 million bicycle riders in the U.S. — About 540,000 bicyclists visit emergency rooms with injuries every year. Of those, about 67,000 have head injuries, and 27,000 have injuries serious enough to be hospitalized. — Bicycle crashes and injuries are under reported, since the majority of them aren’t serious enough for emergencyroom visits. — One in eight of the cyclists with reported injuries has a brain injury. — Two-thirds of the deaths are from traumatic brain injury. — A very high percentage [estimated at anywhere from 45 to 88 percent] of cyclists’ brain injuries can be prevented by a helmet. — Direct costs of cyclists’ injuries because of not using helmets are estimated at $81 million each year. Helmet use in the U.S. varies by orders of magnitude in different areas and different sectors of our society. Whitecollar commuters probablyBicycles aren’t harmlessBy Dan Steber, Naval Safety Center Public Affairs reach 80 percent, while inner city kids and rural kids would be 10 percent or less. Helmets are cheap. The typical discount store price has risen from under $10 to about $15, but models still are available for under $10 at major retailers.
