Vol. 64 No. 25 Friday, June 29, 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.VBS offers children positive outletStory, photos by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, NAVSTA Public AffairsFor many families finding positive activities for their children during the summer months can be a challenge, but for parents of children who attended Vacation Bible School (VBS), June 18-22, the solution was no farther than the drive from their homes to the Base Chapel. This year’s VBS program, which included sing-alongs, crafts, and bible-based activities, was themed ‘Avalanche Ranch,’ featuring unique ‘bible points,’ centered around the days’ activities. “This is a very structured program that the chapel orders as a complete package,” said Jen Amaio, co-director of this year’s VBS. “All churches in the United States are using the same program or some form of it. The complete packages includes step-bystep instructions on how to run a VBS and books for each (activity) station. This program has been tested over and over.” With bible points such as “God is in Charge’ and ‘God is with us’ being reinforced throughout the day, there was no chance of the chapel’s message being lost amid the flurry of activites and excitement. “We have 51 kids, and they are enjoying every minute of it," added Amaio,"the smiles, laughter, and excitement is seen from the moment they arrive until they go home.” Perhaps the only response the directors didn't anticipate was the low numbers of volunteers that almost put this year's VBS in jeopardy. “GTMO’s VBS program was in danger of being cancelled,” said Martie Nunez, co-director of the VBS, “and volunteers were needed to direct the program. Wanting our children to have the blessings of VBS, Jen Amaio and I decided to volunteer.There are lots of moving parts to this (program). Recruiting volunteers and then having their schedules allow them to fulfill their commitments to both work and VBS was a challenge." “I would like to thank everyone who helped out with this year’s VBS,” Amaio added, “without them the program would not run.” Children like Katie DeGroff are proof that programs like these are important for GTMO youth. “I like coming to Vacation Bible School,” the five-year-old grinned when questioned why she liked VBS so much. “I liked the song ‘God is Awesome’ and the snacks.” Even with simple responses like these, volunteers believe children still leave VBS with the intended message. “ I think as volunteers we learn from the children as much as they learn from us…,” said Amaio. “It also gives our kids an exposure to God through a kid-friendly approach that they can better understand. No matter what domination you are or your previous experiences with the church, the kids are able to take away theirContinued on page 5 Children attending this year’s Vaction Bible School dance to the week’s theme song ‘It’s a Wild Ride’ June 23 at the Base Chapel. 4th of July GiveawayWin two tickets to the final NASCAR race of the season.

TFLW will be made up of representatives from across the fleet, Navy enterprises, and officer/enlisted communities whose mission is to create initiatives to address the emerging challenges the Navy Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), along with guidance from Commander, Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) tasked Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) Public Affairs Office (PAO) and all other region PAO’s to join in and create a new consolidated CNIC web site. A website (alternatively, Web site or web site) is a collection of Web pages, images, videos and other digital assets that is hosted on a Web server, usually accessible via the Internet or a LAN. Websites can usually be accessed from a common root URL called the homepage ( www.cnic.navy.mil ), and usually reside on the same physical server. Within the Guantanamo Bay portion of the new CNIC web site, Sailors,NAVSTA GTMO launches new websiteStory by MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public Affairs Task force enhances Sailors’ life/work balancefamilies and other servicemembers will find phone number to different departments, key personnel and topics that may be very important to incoming personnel. The history of GTMO and up-to-date information from sources such as the weekly ‘Gazette’ will provide viewers with more information than the old www.nsgtmo.navy.mil This new web site will enhance the way NAVSTAGTMO communicates with incoming personnel and also with families and dependents back in the states or here on island. CNIC is the Echelon II command under the Chief of Naval Operations responsible for Navy-wide shore installation management. CNRSE serves as the Navy’s Regional Planning Agent, Regional Environmental and Public Affairs Coordinator and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency liaison, as well as the Casualty Assistance Calls Officer in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and the Caribbean Cuba, and Puerto Rico. The pages of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, can be accessed through www.cnic.-navy.mil/guantanamo If departments wish to add or delete from the website, they can call 4502 or contact the Public Affairs Officer at pao@usnbgtmo.navy.mil By Lt. Cmdr. Kim Dixon, Chief of Naval Personnel Diversity Directorate Public Affairsfaces in recruiting and retaining the next generation of 21st Century leaders. The task force’s first meeting is scheduled for July 11. In the next year, TFLW will focus on initiatives to enhance healthy life/work balance, such as telework and off-on ramps. The specific tasks assigned are: examine initiatives the Navy can influence now through policy; identify efforts that will require Department of Defense or congressional approval to plan for conducting long range engagement; and solicit feedback from the fleet on what changes Sailors desire for improved life/work balance. Creating TFLW was one of several ideas that came out of the Executive Life/Work Integration Summit, where more than 20 Navy flag officers, senior enlisted, and senior Navy civilians met to discuss the characteristics of the nation’s changing demographics and the potential impact on Navy service. “Improving life/work balance means recognizing that our Sailors need and want to maintain diverse interests in addition to their Navy commitment,” said Lt. Stephanie Miller, head of women’s policy for the Chief of Naval Personnel Diversity Directorate. “We’ve already taken the first step with the recently updated Pregnancy and Parenthood Instruction. Over the next year, we anticipate being able to implement more programs that will enhance a healthy life/work balance.” While the membership of TFLW is designed to represent a variety of fleet interests, the group will also be seeking input directly from the fleet. In the coming months, TFLW will take what Navy leadership learned during the summit to the waterfront to brief Sailors and to get their direct feedback. Their thoughts, opinions, and insights will be important to TFLW as future workforce policy is developed and implemented. As Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. John C. Harvey Jr. said, “TFLW is not looking for the ‘easy’ button; it’s looking for the ‘better’ button.” For more information on TFLW, refer to NAVADMIN 159/ 07, http://www.npc.navy.mil.

All Sailors should take time to read and discuss these NAVADMINs with their leadership. Some questions and answers below should provide some light on the new uniform policies. What new uniforms has the CNO approved? Reference: NAVADMIN 351/06. The CNO has approved two uniforms: A single Navy working uniform for wear by all Sailors, E-1 to O-10 — at sea, ashore and across all communities. This BDU-style uniform will feature three color variants: a predominantly blue digital pattern (for the majority of our Navy for shipboard and ashore use) and woodland and desert digital patterns for Sailors serving in geographic locations requiring these uniforms. The uniform includes an eight-point, soft cover and black, smooth leather boots. Black suede, no-shine boots will be authorized for optional wear for Sailors assigned to non-shipboard duty commands. Boots for the new woodland and desert uniforms will be announced when uniform designs are approved. The service uniform will be comprised of a short-sleeved, khaki shirt and blouse, black trousers and optional skirt. Miniature silver anodized metal rank insignia for petty officers will be worn on both collars. This uniform will include a black Eisenhowerstyle jacket with a knit standup collar and epaulets, on which petty officers will wear large silver anodized metal rank insignia. Those entitled to wear gold chevrons will continue to wear gold chevrons as the jacket’s large metal rank insignia. When can I start wearing the new uniforms? Reference: NAVADMIN 351/06. The new uniforms will be delivered incrementally to the fleet in 2008 over a 24-month period, starting with large fleet concentration areas first. The Sailors assigned in those areas will have the opportunity to purchase the new uniforms via the Navy Exchange Uniform Centers. When and how will enlisted Sailors receive funds for the new uniforms? Reference: NAVADMIN 351/06 Answer: Enlisted Sailors will receive an increase to their annual Clothing Replacement Allowance during 2008 and 2009 that will allow them to purchase the new uniform requirement prior to the mandatory wear date without additional out of pocket expense. Drilling Reserve Component Sailors (E-1 through E-9), will receive new uniforms through their Navy Operational Support Commands.

There are plenty of reasons why people drink. For most adults, moderate alcohol use causes few, if any, problems. But for some, any alcohol use may lead to significant health problems or affect the ability to perform optimally at work. Alcohol abuse is one of three key health issues identified by the Department of Defense (DoD), along with weight management and tobacco cessation. ThroughHow much is too much?Editorial By MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public Affairseducation, awareness and understanding, individuals can make informed decisions about their drinking behaviors. According to U.S Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Admininstration (NHTSA) projections, 17,941 people died in alcohol-related crashes in 2006, the highest level since 1992 and up 2.4 percent from 17,525 in 2005.

Go to the library, see the w rld!Friday, June 29, 2007 4Story by MC2 Kim Willams, NAVSTA Public AffairsWhile life here in the 'Pearl of Antillies' is known for its year-round 80 degree plus temperatures, deep-sea diving and absence of traffic jams, GTMO residents still frequently visit other cities and countries around the world. With so many destinations to chose from, planning a vacation prior to departing can help travelers ease some of the common pains that go along with taking an annual summer 'va-ca'. So where can GTMO residents turn to indulge in all of the logistics of travel research? The GTMO Community Library. "We have a number of books on different destinations," said Maxine Becker, community library director, "We have books about everything from the walks of London to irreverent Chicago, which is off the beaten track from regular Chicago," said Becker The library also has reference material for servicemembers amid a PCS move. These books describe everything from local attractions and family friendly hotels to popular eating establishments and local landmarks. "If you want to research your next assignment, we have a book for you. We can help you research the culture and community of your next home," said Becker. There's also something for those travelers who want to stay a little closer to GTMO and are traveling to any destination in the Caribbean. The library has a user-friendly card catalog system in which residents can locate a number of books about a specified topic. There are DVDs and audio books available at the library although travel and destination material in these forms of media are very limited. The library is open Monday through Saturday from 8-9 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 9 p.m. In order to check out material from the library you must present a valid form of identification to the staff member at the front desk. So remember, the next time you are preparing for your next trip off-island, pack your bags, purchase your plane ticket and stop by the community library to check out your destination guide! Going once, going twice — Ensign Jeremy Gerrard does his best to encourage more bids during the HispanicAmerican Heritage Association (HAHA) annual Bachelor and Bachelorette auction, June 23. The fundraiser raised almost $1,000 that will go toward the association’s annual dinner dance. Winners and their ‘dates’ will gather June 30 at the Community Center to enjoy movies and refreshments. "HAHA expresses profound gratitude to the handsome and creative auction participants and the GTMO community for their support," said Lupe Beltran HAHA president .Photo by MC2 (AW) Honey Nixon The housing staff would like to remind residents to ensure that their homes are hurricane ready. Please secure any loose belongings and stock up on hurricane items prior to departing for vacation. Please remember to lock your quarters when you are not at home. Your safety is important to us!

5 Friday, June 29, 2007We celebrate our national independence July 4. One of the symbols of that independence is our national flag. How well do you know the different parts of the flag and what they represent? As a test of that knowledge, the Gazette staff created a word search with 17 different words relating to the flag. The words are written horizontally, vertically, backwards and diagonally frontwards and backwards. Can you find them all? Band — the narrow strip of canvas along the edge of the flag that goes next to the staff. Sometimes called the ‘heading.’ Canton — the blue field in the upper left corner of the flag. Color — in the military services, a national flag carried by unmounted units is called a ‘color.’ ‘The Colors’ is used generally in referring to the flag. Dip to dip a flag is to lower it at salute. Refers to a flag of an organization, state or city. The flag of the United States is never dipped first. Ensign — in the Navy, the national flag is usually spoken of as an ensign. Finial — the object on the top of a flag pole, generally an arrow, ball or eagle. Fly — the horizontal length of the flag (left to right). Fringe — gold braiding placed along the three edges of the flag away from the pole. Grommet — the eyelet through which the halyard is fastened to the flag. Half-staff — to lower the flag some distance (not necessarily halfway down) from the top of the staff, as a sign of mourning. Halyard — the rope used to raise the flag, also called the hoist rope.

6 Friday, June 29, 2007Story by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, NAVSTA Public AffairsIt’s another summer morning in Guantanamo Bay (GTMO). Wiping your brow as you walk to the car it becomes quite evident it’s going to be scorcher. For many GTMO residents this scene is no cause for concern just another side effect of their location. But then again, its possible they’ve never been related to one of 200 people nationwide who die each year from heat-related illnesses. “We are getting to that time of year that we are averaging 95 degrees,” said Lt. Clayton Key, industrial hygiene officer for U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, “and that is just dry bulb temperature [not accounting for humidity]. Humidity is an issue because water is the major component of sweat. Heat -transfer is energy in the form of sweat into the atmosphere and if the atmosphere is already saturated with water(humidity), that transfer is not effective.” According to the safetycompany.com website, when exposed to severe heat, the body works to maintain a fairly constant internal temperature. The body produces sweat that, when it evaporates, cools the skin. But in extreme conditions, this process doesn’t work as nature planned. When muscles are being used for physical labor, less blood is available to flow to the skin and release body heat. The body can’t release excess heat, so its core temperature rises and the heart rate increases. As a result, the person starts to lose concentration, has difficulty focusing on tasks and may become sick or irritable. Some may faint or even die if they do not receive immediate care to lower their body temperature. So what does this mean for residents exercising or working in GTMO’s extreme heat and humidity? “The most important aspects are being aware of your physical condition, hydration, and to be able to recognize humidity levels, said Clayton. “Residents can buy a barometer that has a humidity indicator, and they can also look at the weather flag conditions (located at the base gym, Kittery Beach, the hospital, Marine Hill, Bulkeley hall and Camp America.). New personnel and their physical training coordinators also need to be aware of how heat stress can impact a good-intentioned, command workout. “When you get [report] there, you shouldn’t go out running right away,” warned Clayton. “Give your body time to acclimate to the environment. This is where the responsibility of whoever is supervising the physical training session comes in. They need to keep track of how long and what kind of environments their people are coming from. A person in relatively good physical condition might take approximately three weeks to acclimatize. Leaders need to be aware or their personnel and their physical conditions; what they can endure and not to push them too hard, this may result in heat-related illnesses.” So how does one assess their own unique risk factors for heat-related illnesses? “Keep in mind that if your physical condition is not what it should be this can directly impact your risk for heat related injuries,” advised Clayton. “Know your physical limitations. Be aware of how well you maintain hydration levels. This doesn’t mean just drinking water before and after you exercise, but maintaining hydration throughout the day.” Becoming self aware of your habits in the heat means not only knowing yourself, but knowing what habits are downright dangerous. “You see these people running in sweatsuits, that are impermeable [nonbreathable material],” said Clayton in disbelief. “They are not losing body mass, they are losing water. This can shift you into metabolic and electrolyte imbalance. Wear loose clothing that does not trap the sweat you do produce. There are types of synthetic garments that will draw the sweat away from your body. Those are great. Also, you need to watch for black flag conditions, do not exercise if that black flag is flying.” Clayton also offers some quick tips for winning the battle against heat and humidity: “For those who are not long term runners, adjust run times to either early in the morning or late evening when the temperature is lower. If you become dizzy, short of breath, and have profuse sweating, adjust your workout routine these are telltale signs you need to tone it down. Also avoid energy drinks and coffee because they are diretics. The best thing to drink is water. Eat a balanced diet and don’t skip meals. It pretty much just means going back to the basics.”Avoiding heat stress in GTMOOmbudsman Corner Senora (Sunni) Malone NAVSTA Ombudsman Phone 77957 Pager 4084-2390 ur_1ombuds@yahoo.com Steve (Retired) Doherty NAVSTA Ombudsman Phone 77239 Pager 4084-2390 gtmo ombudsman@aol.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.net
