Vol. 64 No. 16 Friday, April 27, 2007 Story by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, Public Affairs Office Youth Program earns national recognition Workers from the Child and Youth Programs pose for a group photo. These workers represent some 60 employees working for MWR Child and Youth Programs. MWR Guantanamo Bay Youth Programs is being recognized with a Boys and Girls Club of America ‘Program of Excellence’ award. Today, Roxanne Spillet, president of the national Boys and Girls Club organization, and Greg Young, CNIC Child and Youth Program Manager, will present the ‘Program of Excellence’ award, at Cooper Field. The presentation follows the Month of the Military Child Parade, which begins at 2:30 p.m. The community is invited to attend and participate in both events. The award recognizes club efforts in providing fun, creative, and high-quality local program opportunities for youth. “Our programs are consistent with the core values, in that we provide activities that empower youth to make a difference in the local community,” said Terrill Wicks, Child and Youth Program Administrator, “to make wise and lasting decisions concerning health, and to learn to build their selfesteem, both here in GTMO, and once they leave the base.” In the award applications, eligible clubs were required to provide the purpose, objectives, and day-to-day activities as they impact the local youth and community in which they live. “Our club makes it the responsibility of its members to look out for the well-being of their friends and peers,” said Wicks. “We, as a community, work together to ensure that the youth on base have the opportunity to participate in activities that are fun, safe, and creative. We work together as a community Security, American Red Cross, and other MWR organizations to help the youth see that safety is a community responsibility.” Guantanamo Bay Youth Program offered 48 different programs in 2006. These programs p romoted the areas of character and leadership enhancement, education and career development, health and life skills, arts, and fitness, and recreation. There are an estimated 110 teens in the teen program, and 65, 5to 12-year-olds registered in the school-age care program. The staff responsible for the development of these young people considers their responsibilities paramount. “I’ve been here since 2003, and I know, how hard we work to maintain our accreditation,” said Aminah Abudullah, Training and Curriculum specialist. “We work daily toward maintaining quality programs for children and their families. We have staff meetings and trainings constantly to address any problems that arise. We are actively working every day, to ensure our excellence.” “Following all activities, the staff meets to discuss goals, objectives, successes and improvements of each event,” added Wicks. “When planning an event for next year, we discuss possible changes for each program. The youth are often included in these discussions. The parents, staff, and children complete a yearly evaluation as well. For example, the results from the MWR survey indicated that all the children wanted more age-specific events, and parents wanted us to extend our activity hours, which we did.” With activities such as ‘Road Rules/Real World,’‘Fashion Show,’ and ‘Science Wiz Week,’ staff members are proud of the programs they provide local children. “I was not surprised when I heard we won,” added Abdullah. “I’ve been working for the military for a long time, and seen a lot of different programs, and this is the best program I’ve been affiliated with.”Photo contributed by Terrill Wicks

Command Career CounselorSea Duty Incentive Pay (SDIP) is a new pilot program designed to balance sea and shore manning in specific ratings. It is designed to encourage enlisted Sailors in select communities to voluntarily remain on sea duty past their prescribed sea tour (PST) or curtail shore duty to return to sea duty early. The goal of SDIP is to increase assignment flexibility to support a more sea-centric Navy. SDIP is limited to selected active duty enlisted Sailors serving in enlisted communities that are undermanned at sea. It will be based on amounts of $500-$750 per month for the length of the extension or curtailment and paid in a lump sum. The pilot program consists of two incentives, SDIP-Extension (SDIP-E) for Sailors who extend sea duty, and SDIP-Curtailment (SDIP-C) for those who cut short a shore assignment to return to sea. SDIP-E allows Sailors to From the Command Career Counselor Sea Duty Incentive Pay program launched volunteer to extend their sea duty assignment on a ship, submarine, or aviation squadron in exchange for a lump sum payment. Sailors extend their at-sea tour for a minimum of six months to a maximum extension of 24 months for a continental U.S. (CONUS) home ported unit and 36 months for an outside continental U.S. (OCUNUS) or Hawaii based unit. Volunteers will receive a lump sum payment based on the number of months the sailor extends past his or her original PST/PRD. SDIP-C allows Sailors to volunteer to curtail their current shore duty assignment and return to sea duty in exchange for a lump sum SDIP-C payment. To receive SDIP-C, Sailors must return to sea duty at least six months earlier than their original shore duty PRD and serve at least 12 months at sea. The payment is based on the number of months a Sailor shortens his or her shore tour. Sailors in the following active duty enlisted ratings, skills and pay grades are eligible for SDIP: Rating/skill pay grade, A viation Boatswains's Mate E-9, Aviation Boatswains's Mate Equipment E-8, Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Fuel E-8, Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Handling E8, Engineman E-6, Fire Controlman-AEGIS E-5, in Navy enlisted classifications 1106, 1107, 1115, 1119, 1143,1144, 1318, 1322, 1335 and 1337. SDIP will be paid in lump sum based on initial monthly rates (from $500 to $750 for each full month extended or curtailed); specific SDIP rates will be posted on the Navy Personnel Command Web site. Sailors may apply for SDIP-E by submitting a Enlisted Navy Personnel Action Request (NAVPERS 1306/7), to their Detailer via their Chain of Command at least one year prior to their current PRD or PST, whichever is later. Eligible Sailors for the SDIP-C need to submit their request to curtail their shore duty assignment at least three months prior to their desired date to detach. For more details go to the navy.mil website or see NAVADMIN 070/07. Following Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma, Affected Navy Family Assistance (ANFA) searched for a new system to address the heavy influx of disaster needs and simplify case management. When Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) received supplemental funding from the Navy for the disasters in 2005, the appropriate distribution of funds to Navy personnel and the DoN family was not as efficient as it could have been due to the lack of a dedicated disaster support system. At that time, the only program that had information about personnel whereabouts and contact information was BUPERS On-Line (BOL). “BOL is not user-friendly and conducive to case management,” said Kandi Debus, the Southeast Regional Coordinator for ANFA. “The system was slow; it would time out. It was a user’s nightmare.” The new system, developed by CNIC and SPAWAR, is known as the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). It was designed to sustain any type of disaster, including a terrorism attack, natural disasters, pandemic flu, etc. Once a disaster is declared and commands and regions are mustered in BOL, the database of personnel in an affected area is automatically transferred to NFAAS where case managers can see who is missing and take proactive measures in making contact. At this point all affected Navy personnel and/or dependents, DoN personnel, Navy retirees, Navy reservists and/ ANFA explains new disaster management Story by MC2 (AW) Monica Nelson, CNRSE Public AffairsContinued on page 5

3 Friday, April 27, 2007 Story and photo by MC1 Robert Lamb, Public Affairs Office Coast Guardsman will teach sport he loves PS3 Billy Marsh, who helped with the recent Professional Wakeboarders Tour, is eager to keep the thrilling sport of wakeboarding alive in GTMO for anyone interested in learning the sport. Marsh, here with the U.S. Coast Guard Port Security Unit 301 (PCU 301), out of Cape Cod, Mass., is ready to share his passion for water sports with others. “I am more than willing to teach anyone on the island to ride," said Marsh. “The MWR Marina has my phone number and at anytime they can call me or email me through the global internet. I am willing to take any free time that I may have and take people out." Marsh recommends that beginners try the sport first before laying out lots of money as some of the professional equipment used can reach into the thousands of dollars. "People don’t have to buy all the equipment before they ever get in the water," replied Marsh. "I have all the equipment that we’ll need. I think everyone should go out and try it first to see whether they like it or not." While the professional wakeboarders were in GTMO they noticed that MWR didn’t have many boards and bindings that people would need to support a sport like wakeboarding. They donated many pieces of their own equipment to MWR, so people could start learning this new and exciting sport. Marsh reminds prospective wakeboarding students who want to take advantage of this new equipment and opportunity to make the necessary safety arrangements before they receive lessons. "Wakeboarding isn’t a dangerous sport in general," said Marsh, "However, if you’re under the age of 18 years old, I would request a parent be present during the lesson. There also needs to be a letter explaining that you’re doing this at your own risk. I cannot be liable if you get hurt. I like to have no more than 6 people in the boat, so I can get a lot of one-on-one time with everyone." MWR also rents water skis and tubes, so even if someone is interested in another water sport besides wakeboarding, Marsh can do those as well. “I also kneeboard, water-ski and sometimes go barefoot, I’ll even break out the tube from time to time,” said Marsh. “I’m 110 percent willing to teach anyone that wants to ride! For the month of April IPS3 Billy Marsh does some tricks of his own, following the wakeboarding exhibition, April 13.

The presentation is part of the Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment which also includes the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and the Color Guard from Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., “the oldest post of the Corps.” The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps was formed in 1934, at historic Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., to augment the UnitedThe United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps appear at air shows and other military and civilian functions around the world.States Marine Band. The unit provided musical support to ceremonies around the nation’s capital and, during World War II, was additionally tasked with Presidential support duties. For this additional role, they were awarded the scarlet and gold breastcord by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which they now proudly display on their uniform.

The eight-week tournament, played on Monday nights, had no clear favorites as team positions changed weekly. It wasn’t long before the better teams, 'PWD,' 'Burns and Roe,' NEX,' and 'NEX Car Sales,' began to stamp their class on the competition. On the final day of competition, there were four teams still in contention for first place. 'NEX' and 'NEX Car Sales' were tied at 19 points, and 'PWD' and 'Alley Gators' were tied at 16 points. The 'NEX' and 'NEX Car Sales' split the first two games. With everything on the line for the last game, 'NEX' took the lead from the first frame and never relinquished it. The 'NEX' took the match 3-1. The battle was now on for second place, 'PWD' needed to win all four games to edge out 'NEX Car Sales.' It seems like they had it after wining the first two against 'J3 Alley Gators,' but it wasn’t to be, as 'J3 Alley Gators' pulled out all the stops to win the last game. The members of the 'NEX' team are Gregory Hunter (624 series), Leroy Graham (743 series, 267 game), Vivia Stephenson (507 series, 211 game), Ruben Pendergrast, Merton Gray, Oswald Brooks (503 series), and Spencer Walton.

This can be done by telephone, on-line, or by visiting the nearest Fleet and Family Service Center. The applicant will first be asked to verify and update personal and contact information and then prompted to choose a response to 10 recognized categories of potential need by clarifying “not affected,” “not sure” or “need assistance.” Included in those 10 categories are the most frequently requested permanent housing, financial assistance and counseling. Each response is tallied and the program calculates a severity code in each category. Once all questions have been answered a database is automatically created within NFAAS. “Our first priority is always going to be our severity codes, reaching out to those families with the most severe needs,” said Debus, who is still wrapping up some of the needs from 2005 hurricane season. Currently there are 30 case workers that have been trained to handle NFAAS case man-ANFA explains new disaster management ...agement. Per the contract, the team is scheduled to disband Sept. 30. According to Debus, the goal right now is to educate those to whom NFAAS could apply.
