Vol. 64 No. 18 Friday, May 11, 2007 Commandant's Own — Sgt. Jonathan Alexander, with the U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, performs for Guantanamo Bay residents, May 1, at the Marine Hill parade grounds. See story and photos on pages 4 and 5.Coast Guard tender aides navigation in GTMO The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Oak (WLB-211) pulled into Guantanamo Bay last week to inspect, perform maintenance, and if need be, replace six navigational buoys that hadn’t been checked since 2004. Oak is a sea-going buoy tender homeported in Charleston, S.C. The ship is in charge of the maintenance of more than 280 buoys along the southeastern coastline and throughout the Caribbean Sea including those in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Haiti and GTMO. A crew of 50 Coastguardsmen performs the extremely dangerous task of removing 6-foot or bigger buoys out of the water for maintenance. The cutter is also tasked from time to time to perform maritime border security, marine environmental protection, maritime law enforcement, and search and rescue operations. “The normal time to pull up a 6-foot buoy out of the water, inspect it, and submerge it back into the water is about an hour,” said CWO Chris Schramm, Oak’s First Lieutenant. “It depends on the buoy and the amount of work. We can get this done, if there’s not too many problems, generally in an hour. With an 8-foot buoy, the same work usually takes an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. You might get a buoy that has a kink in the chain or a knotted chain, and that can take a couple of hours. I’ve seen buoy evolutions that take over four hours.” Officers and enlisted personnel on the bridge pull the ship right up to the side of the buoy to be inspected. Technology and training have made performing this task much easier in recent years. Once the bridge crew maintains course and speed, the deck crew of the OakStory by MC1 Robert Lamb, Public Affairs Officehoist the No. 6 Buoy, weighing 6,500 pounds, from the water, place it on the deck, secure it, and begin to inspect everything from the chain, lighting system and the buoy itself. The chain is 110feet long. As a rule, the anchor chain is three times the depth of the water. As the chain is laid on the deck, the deck crew begins to scrape and chip away at the fire coral and other pieces of sea life that has attached itself to every single link of the chain. “That bright orange stuff really burns,” said Schramm. “That stuff burns when you get it on your skin. Oh it’s bad, it’s real bad. You don’t see it anywhere else but in the Caribbean. It must be a warm-water thing. Fire Coral, its not fun.” Safety is paramount on deck when the men and women of the Coast Guard tend to these navigational markings. The deck crew of about eight Coastguardsmen, who work in a very confined space, all have to be aware of their surroundings. The crane operation and other pieces of working equipment, which are really loud, make it hard to hear what orders are being given at any one time. “This crew has things down pat,” said LTJG Kristen Curran, Oak’s Operations Officer. “They work great together.” Every part of a buoy is tracked by the Coast Guard, so hazardous pieces don’t wind up at the bottom of the ocean. “We have a cradle-to-grave tracking system, so parts like the battery, that may be hazardous to the environment,Coastguardsman Seaman Amy Golden, from U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Oak, scrapes off Fire Coral from Buoy No.6, located in Guantanamo Bay.

Mark S. Boensel, Commander, Navy Region Southeast Lean Six Sigma: Determining what matters Editor's note: As part of a continuing effort to promote Lean Six Sigma,Rear Adm. Mark S. Boensel provides a three-part series on the subject with his personal thoughts and opinions. Part II is below. Part III will be in the upcoming Gazette. Have you seen any preliminary “success stories” that struck you?Rear Adm. Boensel: “We’re at the beginning of the process here in CNRSE, but I have seen briefs of some projects from other individual places that worked out well! These were mostly small projects –what we call ‘just do it’ projects. A lot of them you think –‘well, this is just good housekeeping.’ For instance, one of the work centers had over time accumulated lots of junk in the spaces. They had difficulties accounting for their tools so when they were called Rear Adm. Mark. S. Boensel out do a task, it took a lot of extra time to gather up the right materials, move stuff out of the way, get to the right equipment, locate equipment, etc. “They pretty much did a big field day, identified the extra useless stuff, got rid of that –and organized the remaining equipment that they needed in a way that it could be readily accessed and used. This made their daily tasks easier. Time was utilized more effectively because they weren’t spending half their effort moving stuff to get to the equipment they needed. “They took a Lean approach to their work center and got rid of extra steps and stuff. It’s a matter of seeing what do we really need to be doing and what’s the best way to do it. Lean lets you get rid of the extra steps in order so you can focus on the stuff that’s really important. “There’s a lot of explanation [of these concepts] in the course work at the Green Belt level, and at the Yellow Belt level – the level just below Green. Yellow Belts are vital to the success of the program. The Yellow Belts will be the vast majority of people working in the organization, and they should have received the skills and training to understand conceptually what the program is how to use it. “Most of all Lean Six Sigma is about thinking, about being open to new ideas and being willing to say I know a better way of doing this, and then going through the process to see if that’s an improvement.” What message do you have for every CNRSE employee? How can we help ALL personnel understand that LSS depends upon everyone’s participation, not just Green Belts and supervisors? Rear Adm. Boensel: “Keep an open mind and embrace it. This is an initiative from SECNAV all the way down. “Green Belt, Yellow Belt, Program Director, worker — all of us, from the top, ALL the way through the organization have a responsibility to the American people to use their resources wisely and to the best effect.”Next week: Part III — A Real Opportunity to Make a Difference. Individuals and families can now go online to get simple, ready-to-use fact sheets, checklists, and forms on how to prepare for a variety of natural and man-made disasters — part of Operation Prepare. Operation Prepare is a public awareness program initiated by Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) for community members of Navy ashore installations. ”Staying informed, developing a plan, and making an emergency kit is the theme of this initiative, so that every member of the Navy community can learn to prepare and respond in the event of an emergency,” said CNIC Emergency Management Program Director Owen McIntyre. While Sailors, their families and base personnel may still contact their local emergency manager or ombudsman, they can now go online to and click on the 'Operation Prepare' link to get vital emergency preparedness information. Nearly 40 separate fact sheets are available on a variety of hazards and emergency preparedness tips. The information has been derived from several reputable sources such as the Department of Homeland Security and the Centers for Disease Control and has been tailored especially for the Navy community. McIntyre said that preparedness is the individual’s responsibility and accessing CNIC’s Web site is a great way for personnel to be ready for any situation. Region-specific emergency preparedness information on potential threats likely to occur at an installation or in a region, along with resources for response activities such as evacuation routes, safe haven and shelter locations, can also be found on CNIC’s Web site. 'Operation Prepare' program is intiated Commander, Navy Installations Command Emergency Management Office

Friday, May 11, 2007 4 Local Girl Scouts achieve new levels Girl Scouts have mentored young girls around the globe and encouraged their growth for 95 years. Local Girl Scouts celebrated the national organization birthday with an end-ofyear bridging ceremony, May 6, at the Windjammer Pool. “The Girl Scout program in Guantanamo Bay enables girls of all ages to work together to make our community a better place,” said Kathy Arlinghaus, Girl Scout committee chairperson. “It is important for the girls to work together to display leadership skills and set good examples for the community. The emphasis on faith and cooperation is a lesson that many adults need to remember and this is the cornerstone of the scouting program.” There are five levels of scouting for girls: Daisy (5-6 years), Brownies, (6-8 years), Junior, (9-11 years), Cadette (12-14 years), and Seniors (14 -17 years). “The ceremony marks a milestone in the lives of the Girl Scouts moving up to the next level,” said Arlinghaus. “The girls are met by a fellow Girl Scout on a bridge and led to their new troop. It is symbolic of the change of rank from one level to the next.” Daisy Girls Scouts that bridged to Brownies were: Kaitlyn Arlinghaus, Annettee Belleman, Katie Degroff, Teiyah Diaz, Ava Ellis, Kendra Givens, Gwendollyn Hickok, Jaeden Hill, Jina Hillman, Leah Karony, and Rachel Ratcliff. Brownies who bridged to Juniors were: Jaid Guinn and Roen Hickok. Juniors bridging to Cadettes were: Kayla Arlinghaus, Celina Frye, Victoria Miller, and Diana Polica. There is also an elite group of Girl Scout awards Bronze,By MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, Public Affairs Office Local GTMO Girl Scouts pose for a picture after their bridging ceremony, May 6, at the Windjammer Pool. More than 53 girls participate in local Girl Scouts.Photo by Harriot JohnstonSilver, and Gold Awards, each epitomizing the Girl Scout experience. Each award is considered the highest award for each Junior, Cadette, and Senior scouting levels. To earn the honor, a Girl Scout is required to complete a special project that benefits their respective community. This year, Kayla Arlinghaus is the first Junior Scout to earn a Bronze award in Guantanamo Bay, completing 15 hours toward a chosen project. Kayla collaborated with the U.S. Army Veterinary Service to design a pamphlet that gives general information about caring for pets in GTMO. “My favorite part was going to the vet office and asking questions, and the most challenging part was coming up with the questions,” said Kayla. Kayla has been in scouting for six years and has no plans to give it up anytime soon. “It’s definitely improved the way I speak to other people,” said Kayla. “I learned that working with others is much more fun than working by yourself. They (Girl Scouts) teach you to be considerate, caring, and courageous. I learned consideration at the Vet Clinic here by watching how people treated their pets. My next plan is to earn a couple of badges and begin work toward my Silver award.” Other motivated scouts like Kayla have been working toward their Bronze awards and will be receiving their pins soon. Scouts also participated in various projects this past year that weaved the scout troops and local community together. “The GTMO Girl Scouts participated in the holiday activities this year by decorating a tree at the NEX and walking in the holiday parade,” said Arlinghaus. “The Father-Daughter Dance was also a big event for the Girl Scouts. Additionally, Girl Scouts of all ages participated in the combined scout campout. The camping activities included cooking a meal in a bag, first aid, land navigation and the rain gutter regatta. There are 53 Girl Scouts in Guantanamo Bay ranging in ages 5 to 16. Sixteen of those girls moved up to the next level.” The Girl Scout community also welcomed Teri Key, who will be the new Girls Scout committee chairperson. Arlinghaus was proud to hand over a position that represents teamwork and pride in community. “The Girl Scout program in Guantanamo Bay truly does build communities,” said Arlinghaus. ‘With our small population, to have a program with more than 50 girls is a true measure of success. These girls are forming bonds well beyond their neighborhoods or classrooms. They are committed to the Girl Scout philosophy of being a sister to every Girl Scout.” For more information on Girl Scouts in Guantanamo, call 77017.

According to NEX officials, the rate increase is due to the rising costs of conducting business and a committment to maintain quality of service. Even with the rate increase, customers still save more than 30 percent on services compared to civilian automotive centers. This change enables the NEX Automotive Center to remain a viable quality of life benefit to customers in Guantanamo Bay.
