In 2005, the Chief of Information (CHINFO) began a comprehensive initiative to conduct and align national Navy image, awareness, and branding efforts more effectively by coordinating existing Navy outreach assets which previously operated independently. “A key tactic in this effort is the execution of dozens of Navy Weeks across America each year, which collectively make up the ‘Calendar for America,’” said CDR John Wallach, Director of the Navy Office of Community Outreach. “During a typical Navy Week, the Navy establishes a concentrated presence in a U.S. city, leveraging a major community event such as an air show, state fair, or largescale festival. On average, a Navy Week garners more than a quarter million live impressions and more than 4.4 million impressions via regional media outlets.” Multiple Navy outreach assets are scheduled for the Navy Week, to include the Blue Angels, Leap Frogs, ship visits where possible, Navy Bands, namesake ship crews, flag officer speakers, SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) and EOD Explosive Ordnance Disposal) displays, DoD’s America Supports You grassroots organizations and premiere recruiting assets such as the F/A-18 flight simulator, Navy NASCAR show car, and new Accelerate Your Life Experience. Forty-two Navy Weeks have been conducted to date. The 2007 Calendar for America has been established as follows: Tampa, Fla., Gasparilla Pirate Festival Jan. 20 – 27; Galveston, Texas, Galveston Mardi Gras Feb. 14 – 20; Atlanta, Golden Corral 500 March 12 – 18; Phoenix/ Tucson, MLB spring training March 15 – 28; Louisville, Ky., Thunder Over L’ville Apr. 16 – 22; Omaha, Neb., Offutt AFB Air Show Apr. 30 – May 6; Denver, Cinco de Mayo Festival Apr. 30 – May 6; Philadelphia, Stotesbury Regatta May 13 – 19; Charlotte, N.C., NASCAR Speed Street May 16 – 26; Little Rock, Ark., Riverfest May 21 – 27; Chicagoland, Rockford, Ill.

3 Friday, Jan. 12, 2007 MA2 Isabella named NAVSTA's JSOYStory by MC1 Robert Lamb and MC1 Igo Wordu, Public AffairsMA2 James Isabella, NAVSTA Junior Sailor of the YearMaster-at-Arms Second Class James R. Isabella has been selected as Naval Station Guantanamo Bay’s 2006 Junior Sailor of the Year. Isabella hails from New Castle, Pa. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in September 2002 through the Delayed Entry Program, and began basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill., in December 2002. He graduated basic training in February 2003 and was assigned to Master-at-Arms “A” School at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Va. He graduated from “A” School and won the class leadership award in March 2003. After arriving in Guantanamo Bay in October 2005, MA2 Isabella was given the highly demanding leadership position of Command Investigator, which he held until March of 2006. He oversaw the completion of 14 high profile multi-command investigations, many with local flaglevel interests, including two juvenile cases, DUI-related major traffic accidents, and the larceny and abuse of over-thecounter medications by several juvenile residents. “Petty Officer Isabella is an energetic, industrious, and conscientious Sailor who has proven time and time again that he is clearly a cut above,” said LT Robert Thompson, GTMO Security/Force Protection Officer. Additionally, Isabella assisted the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) with numerous investigations, including two highly sensitive sexual assault cases, which resulted in the arrest and successful prosecution of the offender. He also shared his knowledge of law enforcement with his peers and subordinates by training 75 people in all aspects of preliminary investigative techniques, and certified more than 25 personnel in radar operations. From March to August 2006 he served as a Watch Commander, where he supervised 18 law enforcement officials, 10 ground defense officers, and eight harbor defense personnel through a myriad of assignments. For these accomplishments, he received command recognition as Junior Sailor of the Quarter for the second quarter of 2005. MA2 Isabella is currently assigned to the Security Training Division. “Petty Officer Isabella is always first to take on the hard jobs. His performance, professionalism, dedication and accomplishment over the past year has been remarkable for any Petty Officer, let alone a Second Class Petty Officer,” added Thompson. “He is vigilantly attentive to exacting and demanding the same level of performance of his peers as his subordinates.” According to senior leadership within the Security Department, Petty Officer Isabella is an extremely perceptive indi-U.S. Naval Hospital recognizes its 2006 Sailors of the YearThe U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay recently named their Sailor of the Year, HM1 Fred Turner, along with Junior Sailor of the Year, HM2 Javier Gonzalez and Blue Jacket of the Year, HM3 Holly Bradford.

He maintains close ties with the community by volunteering his time with Crime-Busters. He has received numerous awards including a Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal and two Letters of Commendation. In addition to his other myriad responsibilities, he is also pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in Criminal Justice at Columbia College. “Isabella has distinguished himself through unwavering dedication, meticulous attention to detail and constant selfimprovement,” said Thompson. “There is no finer nominee for Junior Sailor of the Year".

A college education will pay for itself in the long run, but with no single, complete source of information, figuring out how to fund a college education is like navigating the ocean without a gyroscope. Successful planning requires hours of research on the Internet or at the library. Start soon, because the amount of time you have left before tuition bills start rolling in will determine how many options you have. — Saving For College : With 529 plans, investments are managed to help ensure maximum benefit when it is needed with as little as $25 per month contribution or more, and interest is taxfree. There are some cases in which you can use the funds taxfree for non-educational purposes: i.e., if your child goes to a military academy or receives another type of full scholarship, you can withdraw an amount equal to the scholarship, so that you are not penalized for saving for your child’s education. Unused funds from one child’s account may also be transferred to another 529 account without penalty. Additionally, there are Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) (formerly called Education IRAs) that limit your annual investment amount, and prepaid tuition, in which you pay for a specific number of semester hours. — Pros and Cons : Tax and use benefits are similar for all three plans. 529s offer more flexibility and control, but there are possible state income-tax liabilities after the year 2010. Prepaid tuition offers a defined number of classes, while other plans don’t guarantee how much education they will buy. Coverdell ESAs offer the option of using funds for elementary and secondary private school, as well as college. The downside of prepaid tuition and Coverdell ESAs is that their dollar amount is counted as the child’s assets for financial aid, whereas 529s are counted as the parent’s assets and therefore have significantly less impact on the child’s eligibility for financial aid. — Financial Aid : The difference between the cost of school and the expected family contribution (EFC) is the amount of aid for which you are eligible. The EFC is determined by an equation established by law that considers income, assets, a list of other factors and any special circumstances. To determine your estimated EFC use the FinAid calculator. There are four main sources of financial aid: private, institutional, state, and federal. The process begins with meeting the annual deadline for the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FASFA). To apply, you will need the parents’ and student’s tax returns and W-2s for the previous year, a current bank statement, business records, and investment records. — Free Money : Scholarships are available from numerous and often surprising sources, including local businesses. Beware of any source that requires payment for information or applications — a sure sign of fraud. You might consider Upromise and Babymint, which rebate a portion of credit and debit card purchases into an investment account. There’s no catch, provided you shop wisely. — Reduce Costs : Community college is a great way to save. The associate degree curriculum is practically the same as the first two years of a university, but costs far less.Cheryl Crouse NAVSTA Ombudsman Local Liaison Phone 75860 Pager 4447-2000 ccrouse35@yahoo.com Senora (Sunni) Malone NAVSTA Ombudsman Phone 77957 Pager 4084-2390 sunnim0427@yahoo.com Kathy Diaz USNH Ombudsman Phone 7379 Pager 72090, #018 kathiuska.m.diaz@ gtmo.med.navy.mil Jennifer Amaio USNH Ombudsman Phone 7379 Pager 72090, #493 jennifer.k.amaio@ gtmo.med.navy.mil Machele Friend Navy Expeditionary Guard Battalion Ombudsman State-side Liaison ladysgotshuz@cox.netSeveral cases of malaria have been reported in Kingston, Jamaica.

5 Friday, Jan. 19, 2007Provided by Fred Jacobs, Busch Entertainment Corp.Anheuser-Busch extends tributeIt's not the length of life...Continued from page 1 Cuban-American Friendship Day about service, longevityother NAVSTA and JTF personnel participated in the march. Also commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the food service workers at the Gold Hill, Seaside and Leeward Galleys provided a special lunch menu and cake cut in a special ceremony by CAPT Mark Leary, NAVSTA commanding officer, and CDR Moore. “We should strive to respect all humanity, treating those we meet with dignity and fairness, and yes, even loving those whose actions make them seem unlovable,” said Moore. Dr. King’s selfless dedication and commitment to equal rights is evident from the changes that have occurred between the late ‘60s and now, but also from the respect and admiration that lingers today. Among the extraordinary accolades that he received in his short life were the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, and the 1965 American Liberties Medallion presented by the American Jewish Committee for his “exceptional advancement of the principles of human liberty.” Dr. King said in his acceptance remarks, “Freedom is one thing. You have it all or you are not free.” In 1966, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America awarded Dr. King the Margaret Sanger Award for “his courageous resistance to bigotry and his lifelong dedication to the advancement of social justice and human dignity.” Posthumously, Dr. King was awarded a 1971 Grammy for ‘Best Spoken Word Recording’ for his “Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam.” President Jimmy Carter awarded King the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977. King was voted No. 6 among the “Persons of the Century” polled by Time Magazine, and according to a Gallop poll is the second most admired person in the 20th century. He was also named the third ‘Greatest American of all Time’ by the American public in a contest conducted by the Discovery Channel and American On-line (AOL).Jade LaBouliere and Autumn Diallo hold up their Memorial Celebration March program at the Downtown Lyceum on Monday, Feb. 15.Photo by Marianne Mabbitt A tribute program that so far has provided free admission to AnheuserBusch theme parks to more than 1.7 million members of U.S. and coalition armed forces and their families has been extended through 2007. Anheuser-Busch launched “Here’s to the Heroes” in February 2005 to acknowledge the service of military men and women and the sacrifices made by their families. Any active duty, active reserve, ready reserve service member or National Guardsman is entitled to free admission under the program. He or she need only register, either online at www.herosalute. com or in the entrance plaza of a participating park, and show a Department of Defense photo ID. More than 4 million people have visited AnheuserBusch Adventure Parks free under these programs. Three Anheuser-Busch parks – Sea World Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and SeaWorld San Diego – operate yearround. The company’s remaining parks are seasonal. Each park’s operating schedule is available online. Anheuser-Busch operates nine U.S. theme parks: Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Williamsburg; SeaWorld Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio; Discovery Cove in Orlando; Sesame Place near Philadelphia; Water Country USA in Williamsburg and Adventure Island in Tampa. FMI call Fred Jacobs, Busch Entertainment Corp., 314-6136077. U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, established in 1903, is the oldest U.S. base overseas. Cuban people have been an integral part of the base almost since its earliest beginnings. RADM J. B. Hildreth began the day of recognition for all the contributions and long years of service the Cuban community has given to the American community in 1969. That first celebration, called Cuban American Fraternity Day, was held at the “Morin Center,” where Phoenix Cable and the Naval Media Center are now located. At that time there were 2,000 Cuban workers on the base. Cuban members have been instrumental in the development and building of the base. Today the Cuban population living on the base has dwindled. In recognition and appreciation of this friendship, the last Friday of January is recognized as Cuban American Friendship Day. One of the events commemorating the day is the Cuban-American Friendship Day Run. Units and/or teams run in formation in legs of approximately 2 miles (total distance about 10 miles), carrying the American and Cuban flags from the Northeast Gate to the Cuban American Friendship Day Celebration at the Windjammer. At the celebration held at the Windjammer, there is a guest speaker, a buffet lunch, and certificates are presented to the Cuban employees in appreciation of their years of dedicated service. The 2007 celebration will be held at the Windjammer Ballroom on Friday, Jan. 26, starting at noon. Tickets will only be sold at the door, first come, first served. Ticket cost is $12.50 per person. Come join the celebration.Story by Zaida Brewer, President Cuban American Assoc.
