Simmons Gilbort Vol. 63 No. 44 Friday, Nov. 3, 2006Sailors get better perspective through readingStory by MC1 Robert Lamb, Public Affairs Office The USS Constitution, 'Old Ironsides', anchors in Guantanamo Bay in 1933.Picture provided by the Marine Corps Security Force Co., Guantanamo BayContinued on page 5The Navy recently announced the commencement of the Navy Professional Reading Program (NPRP) that currently includes 60 titles ranging from naval history to novels written by modern-day authors. The NPRP is an important component of Chief of Naval Operations priority to Develop 21st Century Leaders. Its slogan, Accelerate Your Mind, challenges Sailors to take an active role in their own professional development. Meeting the Navys current challenges demands of us all a broad understanding of our profession and an informed awareness of the world around us, said Adm. Mike Mullen, Chief of Naval Operations (CNO). Reading is key to this expanded awareness and understanding. The books in the NPRP have been divided into six topic categories leadership, naval and military heritage, joint and combined warfare, regional and cultural awareness, critical thinking, and management and strategic planning. Several of recommended books include: D-Day, June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II, by Stephen E. Ambrose; Flags of Our Fathers, by James Bradley; and Life in Mr. Lincolns Navy, by Dennis J. Ringle. Life in Mr. Lincolns Navy gives an accounting of every aspect of the common Sailors life in the Union navy, from recruiting, clothing, training, shipboard routine, entertainment, and wages, to diet, health, and combat experience. Author Dennis Ringle calls attention to the enlisted Sailors enormous contributions to the development of the U.S. Navy as it moved from wood and sail to iron and steam. Other recommended reading includes The Caine Mutiny, by Herman Wouk; The Sand Pebbles, by Richard McKenna; and The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, by Michael Lewis. Abraham Lincoln once said that reading is the key to already-solved problems and a facility for successfully pursuing the unsolved ones. Put simply, noted Adm. Mullen, reading fosters critical thinking, and critical thinking makes us better leaders and better warfighters. Reading makes us all better people and Sailors, said CMDCM (SW/SS) Larry Cairo. We exercise our brain and learn from what we read. Reading allows us to come in touch with situations we may normally not get to experience, but at the same time allows us to learn from them. Then if we find ourselves in a similar situation, we have an idea how to work through it. Reading is just another way to broaden our horizons through diversity, to get out of our box and learn from others. The books on this list have been carefully chosen by a panel of Navy leaders and scholars. They include awardwinning histories, biographies, novels, business bestsellers and more. Here in Guantanamo Bay,

For example, some GTMO residents may be unaware that Christopher Columbus landed in Guantanamo Bay in 1494; that GTMO was home to the worlds largest rifle range from 19071941; or that the USS MONONGAHELA, once Admiral Farraguts distinguished flagship, and the only ship ever homeported in Guantanamo Bay, caught fire here and sank between Officers and Flag Landings. A 33-year Army veteran who retired as a Chief Warrant Officer, and whose awards include the Legion of Merit, Pete Becola served 12 years in the Special Forces as a Green Beret, and completed tours in Vietnam, Panama, and Germany. Following his Army career, he served as an interrogation instructor at Ft. Huachuca, Ariz., before coming GTMO to work in the Detainee Assessment Branch of the Joint Task Force ( JTF) Joint Intelligence Group. His lifelong fascination with history was sparked during his childhood, when he grew up listening to the stories of World War I and II veterans. When Becola arrived in GTMO in August 2005, the base historical center was closed. When it was reopened, he wanted to help other base residents learn about the rich history in which the base had been involved. The historical center is what used to be the lighthouse keepers quarters next to the lighthouse, located off Sherman Avenue, between Phillips Park and Cable Beach. It is an MWR facility, operated by two volunteers, Becola and history major-turned-lab technician, Joval Gapuz. During his time working at the Historical Center, Becola has spearheaded many projects. He has encouraged the donation of historical artifacts, and has reinvigorated the centers displays. He has also begun gathering support for renovations to the monument to the first two Marines killed in the Spanish-American war, Privates William Dumphy and James McColgan, located at the actual site of their death (a mere 500 meters off Sherman Ave.). One of the future projects planned for the historical center includes a Joint Task Force-GTMO display, an idea devised by RDML Harry Harris Jr., JTF commander. The display will include a detainee bed, comfort items, various detainee uniforms, and a pictorial history of the JTF, beginning with Camp X-Ray. Becola wants the people stationed and assigned here to understand that there is more to GTMO than meets the eye at first glance. He wants to revive interest in the bases history, and leave a legacy of Guantanamo Bay cultural pride and awareness, in part through the development of an impressive and memorable historicalU.S. Marines raise the American flag on June 14, 1898, at the site of the Cuzco Well, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.Photo provided by the National Archives center. He also wants to elicit more volunteers to aid in the renovation of the bases numerous historical sites, and wishes to simply share his much-loved hobby with others. Pete insists, I want to give people a better appreciation for what GTMO stands for, because its more than just a detention center. The Historical Center is open on Saturday, 1 4 p.m. The next time someone visits, ask Becola to tell the tale of two Marines and three sailors who were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for selfless acts at Guantanamo Bay, or about how the 1st Marine Battalions success at the Battle of Cuzco Well preserved the future of the United States Marine Corps. From the SJABy LCDR Matthew Beran, OIC. RLSO Det911: Emergency onlyEveryone knows that 911 is for reporting emergencies, but most dont know that every 911 call including mis-dials and hang-ups generates immediate emergency response by command personnel. Mis-dials and hang-ups divert critical resources from real emergencies putting lives and property at risk. Should you mis-dial 911, STAY ON THE LINE! The operator will ask for your name and explanation for the call. Please explain the error so that response time can be kept to a minimum and preserve emergency response resources for true emergencies!

Thirteen fairytale-inspired houses were displayed outside the center for area children to wander through and explore, as they grabbed a few sweet treats along the way. The CYP encompasses Child Development Home Providers, the Teen Center, the Child Development Center, and the Youth Center, whose staff members created the handcrafted houses for the community to explore, said Terrill Hill, CYP administrator. The event was another avenue for parents to get mileage out of their childrens costumes, and at the same time gave the children a chance to use their imagination and exploration skills. Its good for them because they get more chances to dressup, and it makes Halloween a little longer for them, said BM2(SW/AW) Raquel Saspe, who took her daughter Sarina. She really loves dressing up, and could not make up her mind on what she wanted to be. We actually ended up with four different costumes. I think she also expected people to hand her candy, but she was able to actually get her own candy in each little house. She thought it was a lot of fun. It also was an opportunity for her to show her playful side as well. The night wasnt just about children, it also offered a reprieve for parents who might have needed some personal time. If you wanted, you could let them stay until midnight, said Maria Saddler, so parents could have a night out. Its great, because you know the kids are in good hands and will be well taken care with lots of activities to keep them occupied while youre gone.Story by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, NAVSTA Public AffairsChildren get to explore fairy-tale landPhoto by MC2(AW) Honey NixonNicholas Restrepo explores the Hansel and Gretel house at the Teen Center during the Children and Youth Programs Octoberfest, Oct. 28.

Many web sites previously accessible prior to this software installation are now blocked. ISD is receiving numerous requests to unblock sites because they are harmless or innocent, and are accessed primarily for personal vice job related use. The NAVSTA instruction for acceptable use of Internet and email was last reviewed and modified in May 2004. At that time there were limited resources available for personnel to access the Internet or e-mail for personal use; therefore, the policy was fairly unrestrictive. GTMO now has two commercial Internet service providers, liberty centers, the library and an Internet cafe with wireless connectivity available for personal use. NAVSTA has become increasingly dependent on the availability of bandwidth for dayto-day business activities. We have advanced to the point that we are, in a practical sense, totally dependent on having Internet/NIPR available to accomplish our mission. Due to the bandwidth requirements for web-based applications and increased e-mail requirements, it is necessary to restrict Internet traffic to primarily Official Government Business on the NAVSTA network. If sites are blocked that are required in the performance of your duties, submit a request through your chain-of-command to ISD@usnbgtmo.navy.mil for review.By Daphne J.

Photos by MC1Bob LambAfter a tour of the cardboard homes, with themes from famous tales such as Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Hansel and Gretel, children were given a prize from a treasure box before their final exit down an impromptu red carpet. Many used the opportunity to show off their costumes in style before heading home. It was great they also had the red carpet down, so the children could show off their costumes and feel like superstars, laughed Saddler. I thought it was very successful, added Hill. We really wanted try and offer something for families who dont celebrate Halloween, so I thought it gave them another outlet to celebrate and let the children dress-up. We were very proud of staff that made the houses, and we were glad to see the parents bring their children out. We had such a good response that we plan on adding to it next year and making it even better.Continued from page 3Children explore ...the books in the NPRP are readily accessible through the base library. The Navy Exchange will also have some of them for sale. For those who might not be strong readers, audio versions of most of them can be downloaded for free from the Navy Knowledge Online (NKO) Web site. The base library has had many copies of these books before the suggested reading list came out, said Maxine Becker, base librarian. Many of them are on the best sellers lists. I think it was a very good choice of books. Its a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction. I was very impressed with the books that theyve chosen. The vision of the required reading program is learning from our past, said CMDCM Cairo. Books, whether they are fact or fiction, are based off proven methods. This is what makes the story work. Why not use these tools to develop our methods and use them to accomplish the mission.Continued from page 1Perspective through reading...Erec HendlChris Frye Jamie Bodlovic Andrew PerryPhoto by MC2(AW) Honey NixonReady for a close-up?

Sampson students, with help from MWR and their friends, put on scary show for whomever dared to go through the Haunted Trail in the Wine Cellar, Oct. 27 and 28. Anyone who was brave enough to approach the trail paid a small token to proceed. The ghosts, goblins, and other scary monsters raised more than $1,000 for the senior class trip, which will take place later this spring.Photos by MC1 Robert Lamb Photos and graphics by MC1 Robert Lamb and MC1(SW) Terry MatlockThe staff of the Bayview Club, assisted by other MWR personnel, set up a Time Warp on Oct. 28 with a showing of the classic movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. They, and other show attendees, dressed up as characters in the film, and responded ritualistically to events in the movie. The film premiered in 1975, and has had a significant fan following ever since.
