The elaborate event, held June 16 at the Windjammer Ballroom, featured traditional Filipino food, tribal dances that depicted moments in Filipino history, and a beauty pageant. Local residents performed the ‘Itik-Itik’, a limerick dance that imitates a duck walking with short choppy steps splashing water on its back. They also trilled the crowd with many other traditional dances including a solo slave dance called ‘Asik’. It is a dance performed by an umbrella-bearing attendant to win the favor of her sultan master. Master of Ceremonies, Diego Carpeso, believes that there is an added significance in celebrating the Filipino independence here. He added that it is not only a celebration of independence but also a recognition which symbolizes the special relationship between the United States and his country. The ties between both countries can be pointed to the early part of the history of the Phil-

John C. Harvey, Chief of Naval Personnel. Phase One began in June for officers and will begin in August for enlisted Sailors. During this timeframe, Navy Personnel Command will start to bring about 1,200 Joint Manning Document (JMD) driven GWOT billets into the normal detailing process as they become open between September and December 2008. These billets account for about one-third of all the active duty IA requirements that exist today. Phase Two will continue this process, adding additional billets to make a total of about 80 percent of the IA requirements. Phase Three will add the emergent fill billets into the process, which currently consist of about 20 percent of the IA requirements. Under these plans, Sailors would volunteer for an IA assignment at their Projected Rotation Date (PRD) and PCS to either San Diego or Norfolk, Va. where they will be attached to the Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center while they carry out their temporary duty GWOT Support Assignment (GSA). “The desired end state is a Sailor assignment and distribution system which retains predictability for our Sailors and stability for our commands, yet is agile enough to respond to the requirements of our combatant commanders in the GWOT,” said Harvey. According to Harvey, the current process of selecting Sailors to fill IA billets will continue in the short term, but as we transition into the new process, there will be less and less requirements for commands to pull Sailors mid-tour. “Our existing IA process meets mission and has matured to the point that we average nearly 60 days notice (to our Sailors),” said Harvey. “However, it also limits Sailor input into the process, masks unit level manning impacts, and its unpredictability breeds uncertainty and concern from the fleet.” The new process is expected to improve the predictability of GWOT assignments, enable volunteerism, improve manning stability at the unit level, and add detailer involvement for oversight The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), collaborating with the Food and Drug Administration, state and other partners, has identified an outbreak of a serious but rare eye infection called Acanthamoeba Keratitis (AK). This infection is caused by a free-living ameba (Acanthamoeba) a microscopic organism found everywhere in nature. Infections can result in permanent visual impairment or blindness. AK primarily affects otherwise healthy people, most of whom wear contact lenses. In the United States, an estimated 85 percent of cases of this infection occur in contact lens users. The incidence of the disease in the U.S. is approximately one to two cases per million contact lens users. CDC has received reports of 138 cases of culture-confirmed AK in 35 states and Puerto Rico,Contact lens solution recallStory provided by Lt. M.R.

So the next resonable question would be 'Are Sailors allowed to “walk and talk” on command issued or personal cell phones while in uniform'? Reference: U.S. Navy Uniform Regulations, Chapter Two, Section 1, Articles 2101.3.c.(1).(c).and 2101.3.c. Yes, “Use of these devices will not interfere with the proper rendering of military courtesies and honors.” This question is askedInformed Sailors make better Sailors!Editorial by MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public Affairsoften. More recently, the use of the new wireless “Blue tooth” technology worn over the ear has received a great deal of attention. Navy policy authorizes Sailors to walk and talk on cell phones whether command issued or personal, this includes the use of the wireless technology. However, attention and or consideration should also be given to professional appearance. As in the case of the “Blue Tooth” having a device hanging off the ear while not being used distracts from a professional appearance and as such should be properly addressed. In short, the ear is not an appropriate place to mount/hang a cell phone that is not in use.

The military image reflected by attention to detail while wearing our uniforms is a key element in the public image of the Navy. The important issue here is attention to your surroundings, especially on or near military installations. Talking on a cell phone is not an excuse for failing to salute or rendering military greetings and courtesies. Some prescribing authorities have issued local policy restricting the use of the cell phones for reasons such as safety. As with all Navy policies, we strongly recommend Sailors become familiar with local cell phone policies.

Friday, June 22, 2007 4Navy 'docs' celebrate 109 years of military medicineStory, photos by MC2 Kim Williams, NAVSTA Public AffairsHospital Corpsman (HM) in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, GTMO and HM’s worldwide recently celebrated their 109th birthday June 15. U.S. Naval Hospital, Guantanamo Bay held a ceremony honoring the medical professionals, which included a reciting of the Navy corpsman pledge, “I am a Navy Corpsman” poem and unveiling of a plaque which memorialized the fallen corpsman since the United States began its War on Terror. The hospital corps is the only enlisted organization designated as a corps in the United States military. Known as the enlisted medical specialists for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, HM’sHM2 Travis Gann recites the Navy Corpsman pledge during the U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay's 109th Hospital Corps birthday celebration. The corpsman rating was established June 17, 1898. provide medical care in different capacities and locations, including naval hospitals and clinics, ships and battlefields. "I was last deployed to AlKasik, Iraq just south of the Syrian border," said Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Robert Karam. The deployment was just under seven months. The original mission was to teach Iraqi soldiers first aid but once[we arrived]in country, our mission no longer existed. Our command informed us that we had the option to go back to the states but there were many locations [in Iraq] with little to no medical support and they asked us if we were willing to go to these locations. Everyone accepted the offer to stay in Iraq and we were all sent to different areas of Iraq. The experience was every emotion you could think of, but worth every minute," said Karam. Capt. Linda Ireland, master of ceremonies for the event, stated "The experience was every emotion you could think of, but worth every minute,"said Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Robert Karam.the importance of the role of the corpsman. "The hospital corpsman is the backbone of the Navy medical department. Corpsmen have always had the job of maintaining the health of their shipmates often as the sole medical provider whether on the [sea], under the sea, in the air or on the ground. Throughout their 109 year history, beginning with the landing of the Marine Expeditionary Battalion here in Guantanamo Bay in 1898, the Hospital Corps has established a valorous reputation for effectiveness and bravery unparalleled in the Navy medical department. Their heroism under fire is legendary because the men and women who proudly call themselves hospital corpsmen first and foremost care about their shipmates. I am proud to serve with the most highly decorated and finest corps in the Navy Medical Department, the Hospital Corps," said Ireland.

Friday, June 22, 2007Michele Asi is crowned the new ‘Miss PDIC’ during the Philippines Independence Day Celebration June 16 at the Windjammer Ballroom. Asi, who currently works for BREMCOR, is a third year nursing student at Our Lady of FADMA University (OLFU), Manila, Philippines. Continued from page 1Philippine Independence Day...ippines. The people of Philippines first step towards sovereignty came after a declaration of Independence June 12, 1898, after General Emilio Aguinaldo’s led forces revolted against colonial Spanish rule. But the Spanish and the United States government did not recognize that declaration. After the battle of Manila Bay, the Spanish government ceded the Philippines to the United States in the 1898 Treaty of Paris to cover for Spanish expenses and assets lost. Philippines subsequently gained its independence from the United States July 12, 1964. While addressing the audience as one of the guest speakers, installation Commanding Officer, Capt. Mark Leary, said that both countries share a lot in common, especially the ideals of freedom and democracy. Leary highlighted an ideology pursued by an eminent Filipino educator and statesman, Camilo Osias, as a typical example of importance of the pursuit of freedom. “The Philippine people had a wide role to play on the international stage. He quoted Osias “Not only nationalism but internationalism should guide our thinking process and permeate our way of life,” he said. “The citizens of the Philippines have taken Osias’ view to heart. In cities around the world and in Guantanamo Bay, the people of the Philippines are raising their voices in celebration of their country’s independence. Through their love of freedom, enterprising spirit, and enduring faith are making a positive impact on the world. May the friendship between our two countries, the United States of America and the Republic of the Philippines be everlasting. Happy Independence Day, Philippines,” said Leary. BREMCOR Program Director, Gilbert Bratschi, expressed his admiration for the contributions the Filipino community makes in GTMO. “I have much admiration for the Filipino spirit and enthusiasm resulting not only in programs such as you see here tonight…But also in quality professional services and products being provided to the U.S military here,” said Bratschi. The highlight of the event was when 25 year old Michele Asi was crowned Miss PDIC 2007. Ms Asi, who works for BREMCOR, hopes to become a Nurse after she graduates from, Our-Lady of FADMA University (OLFU), Manila, Philippines where she is a third-year student. The evening was capped with a rendition performance called ‘Ati Atihan’. This choreographed dance imitates warriors in their full battle attire, chanting war songs while brandishing spears. PDIC Chairperson, Donna Gail thanked the guests and management of several contracting companies in GTMO for their contributions toward a successful independence day event. “Today’s event will not be possible without the support of the management of Burns & Roe Services Corporation, especially Mr. Bratschi. They excused dance performers from their regular working schedule to attend rehearsals. I would like to thank the GTMO community for also supporting several fundraising campaign for the PIDC,” she said. Gail acknowledged the PIDC Committee by calling them all on stage in her closing remarks. Gail also said that credit should be given to all those who really worked hard for its success. “It might be impossible to set up a show like the PIDC but once again, Filipinos showed their unending BAYANIHAN!

6 Friday, June 22, 2007Continued from page 2with complete patient data available for 46 case-patients. Thirty-nine of the 46 case-patients wore soft contact lenses. Preliminary information obtained by CDC from patient interviews indicates that, among soft contact lens users who reported the use of any type of solution, 21 (58 percent) reported having used Advanced Medical Optics (AMO) Complete Moisture Plus Multi-Purpose Solution in the month prior to symptom onset. Out of the 37 case-patients for whom clinical data was available, 9 (24 percent) failed medical therapy and required or are expected to undergo corneal transplantation. Based on these findings people who wear soft contact lenses who use AMO Complete Moisture Plus Multi-Purpose Solution should: See a health care provider if experiencing any signs of eye infection: Eye pain, eye redness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, sensation of something in the eye, or excessive tearing. U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay is advising base contact lens users to immediately stop using the contact lens solution Complete Moisture Plus. The warning came as Advanced Medical Optics, in conjunction with the CDC and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified an outbreak of a serious but rare eye infection caused by a microscopic living organism with a link to AMO contact lens solution. — Stop using the product immediately and discard all remaining solution including partially used or unopened bottles. — Choose an alternative contact lens solution. — Discard current lens storage container and current pair of soft lenses. — Call the optometry clinic at 7-2250 if you experience the following symptoms: sudden blurred vision, red eye, pain, light sensitivity or eye tearing. The hospital has also ordered AMO Complete Moisture Plus Multi-Purpose solution product removed from the Navy and Marine Hill Exchanges.Contact lens solution recall1. SUR VEY: In preparation for our visit in July, the Naval Inspector General conducted an internet-based personnel survey. More than 40 percent of you responded! We appreciate your participation; the information is very helpful as we prepare for our visit to Guantanamo Bay. 2. FOCUS GROUP MEETINGS: As part of our visit, we will hold focus group discussions to gain more insight, from a customer’s viewpoint, into the readiness and quality of life in the area. Each focus group will be composed of a cross section of Navy personnel assigned to NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay and Navy tenant commands. Each group will consist of approximately 20 people in a specific rank/rate and civilian employees of the Department of the Navy. Selection will be made on a random basis. If you are selected to participate, you will be notified by your chain of command. The uniform of the day is appropriate for these meetings. Groups begin promptly as scheduled. Please arrive on time as it is disruptive to the group when personnel are late. Your views and honest input will be helpful as we attempt to improve the quality of life for all Navy personnel and civilian employees. 3. HOTLINE PROCESS: If you would like to bring an issue to the attention of the Naval Inspector General team and you are not included in a focus group discussion, we encourage you to first attempt to resolve the issue using the chain of command since most matters can be resolved at the local level. If you have specific issues that you have been unable to resolve or you need assistance in determining the right avenue of redress for a particular problem, please visit the IG website at www .ig.navy .mil. The website fully explains our 4-Step Hotline Complaint Procedure and answers Frequently Asked Questions related to the hotline process. In addition, the link to Common Hotline Complaints and Investigative References, provides you the information needed to determine whether your issue is appropriate for the IG or another process. If after reviewing the information on the IG website you believe the matter is appropriate for the IG, we request you submit a complaint using the NA VIGHotlines@navy .mil e-mail address or call the toll-free number, 1-800522-3451. We encourage you to fully complete the hotline complaint form and submit your complaint in writing by e-mail, fax, or letter. Our experience has shown that written complaints are more organized, provide more details, and are less emotional. An investigator will evaluate your complaint and acknowledge receipt to let you know if the matter warrants investigation or does not fall within our purview. If we conduct an investigation, we will send you an e-mail or letter to inform you that the allegations were substantiated or not if you provide your name and address/e-mail address.Na Na Na Na Na vy Inspector Gener vy Inspector Gener vy Inspector Gener vy Inspector Gener vy Inspector Gener al al al al al f f f f f ocus g ocus g ocus g ocus g ocus g r r r r r oup & hotline oup & hotline oup & hotline oup & hotline oup & hotline complaint pr complaint pr complaint pr complaint pr complaint pr ocess ocess ocess ocess ocess
