Vol. 64 No. 19 Friday, May 18, 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.NAVSTA receives 'Golden Anchor' award Story contributed by the Command Career Counselor's OfficeIT2(SW) Jason Silvas receives his special liberty pass from Lt. Jimmy Compton after reenlisting for three years. Reenlistments like these aide in the retention rate, which contributed to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay winning the 'Golden Anchor award.Naval Station Guantanamo Bay was recently awarded the ‘Golden Anchor’ award for outstanding Navy retention during fiscal year 2006. The Golden Anchor’ also known as the 'Retention Excellence Award,' recognizes commands that meet or exceed retention goals in the Navy. GTMO surpassed these goals and objectives for the second year in a row. GTMO’s career counselors attained these impressive results through a variety of career management tools and incentives. According to NCC Jon Monteleone, NAVSTA’s Command Career Counselor, “Good retention is the end result effectsbased decision making and sound leadership. Every leader on this base plays a role in our retention numbers. We have a solid Command Retention Team that is properly trained and on the deckplates working side-by-side with our Sailors.” Recent ARGUS surveys have shown that Sailors are more likely to reenlist when they are performing in clearly defined missions, in this case, the Global War on Terrorism. “Monetary incentives play a part in a Sailor’s decision to stay in the Navy, but it has always been about being involved with something meaningful, appropriate and clearly defined goals,” states Monteleone. “Sailors like to be a part of something important, and that’s what serving in the Navy is all about. They are making a difference in our world.” “Sailors have many different reasons for staying in the Navy,” said, CMDCM(SW/SS) Larry Cairo, NAVSTA Command Master Chief, “but we all have one common goal, to be successful. The Navy provides us the tools to be successful, both in and out of the Navy.” “Retention is also a product of the community,” added Cairo, “and in Guantanamo Bay we have a diverse and supportive environment. We work together throughout the community and respect each other like we are part of a family.” CAPT Mark Leary, NAVSTA Commanding Officer, always informs new arrivals and visitors about the continuous improvements made in GTMO and achieving the award again demonstrates the command's commitment to that process. CAPT Leary said 'Team GTMO' is made up of some of the finest people from around the globe, and their work ethics and professionalism makes Naval Station Guantanamo Bay one of the best locations for assignment in the world and feels this directly relates to their desire to continue their service. “Winning the Golden Anchor is important.” said Monteleone, “because it shows the command’s focus on our Sailors’ careers and their well being, without that focus, we could not accomplish the mission we are tasked with.” Photo by MC1 Igo Wordu

Mark S. Boensel, Commander, Navy Region Southeast A 'real opportunity' to make a real difference Editor's note: As part of a continuing effort to promote Lean Six Sigma, Rear Adm. Mark S. Boensel provides the last of a three-part series on the subject with his personal thoughts and opinions. Have you seen any preliminary “success stories” that struck you? What can EVERY CNRSE employee do to ensure the success of LSS? Rear Adm. Boensel: “Lean Six Sigma is a real opportunity to make a real difference all across Navy Region Southeast. Make the effort to understand LSS conceptually “Most of all, it is important to remain open to new ideas and go through the process in good faith. My message: keep an open mind and embrace it. “LSS gives everyone in the organization the opportunity to contribute in a really big way. We need that! Rear Adm. Mark. S. Boensel MyPay new security feature offers protection Department of Defense Finance and Accounting Services“We all have thought, ‘I wish I had the opportunity to tell someone, “I know a better way to do it!”’ Here is just that opportunity! “Leadership is looking for those ideas – your ideas! And so feel free to give them to us. We will put them through the rigors of the process – and I’m sure we’ll find a lot of them are exactly on target. But even if we find that they aren’t, that’s ok too, because we had the opportunity to explore that avenue and determine its value.” What gets you the most excited about LSS? Rear Adm. Boensel : “I think the most exciting thing operates on a couple of different levels. “First, for mission accomplishment on the organizational level, it is tremendously exciting to have the opportunity to make quantum leaps in how we do business. “Secondly, it is an opportunity for each individual to get involved in making an institutional level of change. From the individual perspective, it’s an open invitation to really get involved in the way we do business and make changes in the way we do business. “In both cases if I had to sum up LSS in one word it would be ‘ opportunity .’ There’s a tremendous opportunity to make significant org anizational change through individual contribution.” “Keep an open mind. In addition to keeping an open mind, go beyond embracing LSS to lean forward and push the process along. Be aggressive about implementing LSS. Become a part of it. Defeat the temptation to just sit back and just watch — you could miss a really enjoyable experience, because we’re looking for people to step out. Take some risk — be forward thinking — be forward leaning. In my mind there are no penalty points for being forward leaning –if we don’t get it \ right the first time, ok, we’ll tweak it and we’ll press on. “And we’ll keep pressing on till we get it!” MyPay officials announced today another new security feature has been added to protect customers’ data on the pay account system. As part of an on-going commitment to strengthen password and account security to protect customers’ data, Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) has implemented the “virtual keyboard” to assist in protecting against malicious software such as spyware, trojans and keylogging. The virtual keyboard is available beginning mid-May. Each time a user arrives at MyPay to log on, the virtual keyboard will appear on the screen. The user will type in their LoginID and then the user will “press” the keys on the screen by clicking on them with their mouse to enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN) instead of typing the actual keys. The virtual keyboard is to be used only for the user’s PIN. To enhance security, the keyboard layout changes or keys are displayed randomly every time the page is refreshed. “This is a significant move toward adding yet another layer of security to our MyPay system,” said Pat Shine, director of operations for DFAS. “We want to reassure our customers that we are proactively working to secure their pay account information. “DFAS uses a variety of security features to protect your data on the MyPay system, yet we ask that customers do everything they can to protect data from being compromised or captured on home computers.” Under frequently asked question on the myPay homepage (https://mypayContinued on page 4

Approximately 40 Sailors, DoD civilians, and other invited guests gathered at the Guantanamo Bay Hospital quarterdeck to honor the Navy’s primary caregivers. According to the Wikipedia website, the NNC was established in 1908 and consisted of 20 women known as the “the sacred twenty.” They were the first women to serve formally as members of the Navy. Today, the NNC is more diverse and consists of male and female officers of the rank of Ensign and higher. “While I was an instructor at Explosive Ordinance Disposal school in 1997, my wife became disabled,” said, Lt. Frederick Huss, Emergency Room department head, “I had to do a lot of nursing-type care with her, and I enjoyed it, so it inspired me to become a Navy Nurse.” The NNC is a force of 3,000 active-duty and 2,000 reserve nurses equipped to use their medical skills in support of their fellow Sailors and Marines worldwide. These nurses are vital to military medicine and integral in the military healthcare system. “ [We] are the glue of the hospital. We make sure patients get complete care through the end. We look at the big picture,” said Lt. Michele Dobson, Primary Care department head. In order to sustain operational readiness at all times, the NNC and the entire hospital staff must stay current with the ever changing theoretic and practical requirements of the field. “We provide important training to our staff and corpsmen which helps strengthen our force here and abroad, so that we may provide high quality care to both military and civilians,” said Huss. “As a corpsman, we rely on nurses for their skill and ability to teach us,” said HM2 Travis Gann, pharmacy department assistant leading petty officer. “The nurses at Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay exemplify the NNC values in all of their everyday dealings.”Lt.

Friday, May 18, 2007 4Firefighters rely on each other in life-anddeath situations. Teamwork is essential when Engine Companies respond to calls. To promote and foster the concept of this teamwork, the Guantanamo Bay Fire Department held its first ever Sports Week. The idea was the brainchild of firefighter, Deanroy Tulloch, an avid sportsman himself, who felt a little healthy competition among the ranks would help the department come together. “I wanted to do something that would bring this department together, and heighten the camaraderie that already exists due to our housing situation.” The entire department was broken into four teams based on the living arrangements of the firefighters — meaning housemates, became teammates. Each team was designated by a color: Blue, Red, White and Yellow. During the week of May 7 -12, the teams competed against each other in golf, tennis, soccer, bowling, paintball, volleyball, pingpong, basketball, track and tug-of-war. The groups racked up points based on first, second, third, and fourth place wins. At the end of the week, the team with the most points walked off with an impressive threefoot trophy. The victorious team this year was the 'White House.' Sore muscles and aching backs aside, the strenuous week was a huge success in terms of both morale and unity. Fire Chief John Mabbitt said he was skeptical about the idea in the beginning, but quickly changed his mind as the week wore on. “Firefighters need to be fit to perform their jobs to their fullest potential," said Mabbitt. “This week focused on the importance of fitness. The second concept that was highlighted was “teamwork” — which happens to be the single quality that can saves lives in an emergency situation. This week brought both those lessons home to our firefighters.” GTMO Fire Department holds Sports Week Story and photo by Tracye MillerGTMO Fire Department team 'White House' holds up the winning trophy for this years sports week.
