Friday, July 27, 2007 Vol. 64 No. 29 The Gazette will not be published Aug. 3. Publication will resume Aug. 10.It’s a hot sunny day in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; eight servicemembers in their camouflage uniforms standby in anticipation of their next command, which will direct them to point their weapons downrange and shoot their targets. In their heads, they replay the fundamental shoot-Story, photos by MC2 Kimberly Williams, NAVSTA Public AffairsA day at the range:Weapons department qualifies troopersing techniques and weapon nomenclature their instructors taught them the day before, in hopes that they have perfected and retained this information. They know that a piece of white paper with a human torso drawn on it will separate the novice marksmen from the expert shooters. The range master yells, “target,” and a symphony of gunfire fills the air. It’s the beginning of these servicemembers’ journey to becoming proficient gunmen. For the gunner’s mates of Naval Station (NAVSTA) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; it’s just another day at the range. The NAVSTA weapons department manages and operates range control for five live fire ranges. They train, qualify and provide range safety officers for smooth and safe range operations for tenant commands as well. Thousands of servicemembers hone their skills and learn to operate various weapons. Sailors, Marines, Soldiers and Airmen spend two days learning the details about everything from breath control and proper trigger technique to sight alignment and muzzle awareness. Instructors emphasize the importance of simple things that can improve shooting, including posture or stance to students during the theoretic portion of the class. Their goal is for this knowledge to aid students when they take the practical part of their qualification. Participants practice shooting from three distances three, seven and fifteen meters and engage in several courses of fire from the kneeling, standing, and in the case of the M-16, crouched positions. Recently, Sailors from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 133 participated in M9 Beretta qualifications.

WASHINGTON (NNS) — The Navy’s new emphasis on performance marks in calculating Final Multiple Scores (FMS) gives Sailors more control over their own advancement and improves competition, according to Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Mullen. “It was designed to give both CO’s and Sailors more influence on advancements,” he said in his latest weekly podcast. “So if you’re performing better and and your evaluations are better, your chances are improved.” The changes will affect E-4 through E-6 rating exams by placing a higher percentage of weight on evaluation performance mark average (PMA). For Sailors taking the E-4 and E-5 rating exams, PMA points will rise from 36 to 43 percent of the FMS. For those taking the E-6 rating exam, PMA points will also get a seven percent boost to nearly half of the FMS at 48.5 percent. Exam scores will also be given more consideration. For E-4 and E-5 test takers, exam scores will count for 38 percent and 33.5 percent for E-6’s. Though all medals still offer advancement points, Mullen also said individual augmentee (IA) tours will be calculated into the FMS. “Two points were added to the awards factor of the FMS after completing greater than 90 consecutive days in Iraq, Afghanistan, Horn of Africa, Kuwait, GTMO, Joint Task Force 515, or Joint Force Special Task Force Philippines,” he said. In addition to IA tours, all Sailors will receive a boost in award points to five percent of their FMS. Other changes under consideration include the addition of points for college credits, though details are still being worked out and may not be realized until later this year. Mullen made his feelings on the changes clear. “I think it’s absolutely the right thing to do. This is a competitive business, a competitive environment, and we want only the best Sailors to advance.”New final multiple formula sharpens competition for advancementFrom Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs Ombudsman CornerSenora (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 Machele Friend Navy Expeditionary Guard Battalion Ombudsman State-side Liaison ladysgotshuz@cox.netThe MWR School of Dance is looking for volunteer ballet, tap, hip-hop, & jazz teachers.

The dark, gloomy streets of a large metropolis or the semi-deserted, lackadaisical streets of Guantanamo Bay ( GTMO)? The answer: both Many people have the misconception that crime only happens in highly populated, urban areas. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. “Even though we are in GTMO, we still have crime. We are among a large, diverse population of people,” said Master at Arms 2nd Class (SW) Mark Jones, “People have very different backgrounds and morals and you never know how they lived before coming to GTMO. Just because we are on base doesn’t exclude us from being part of the normal society,” said Jones. Many base residents practice the unsafe habit of leaving their homes and vehicles open. Criminals take advantage of this practice. “The fact that people do not lock their doors contributes heavily to theft on base,” said Lt. Jimmy Compton, NAVSTA security officer. He also pointed out that unlabeled property left outside of homes is a big target for many thieves. “There are a lot of divers here in GTMO. People hang their equipment outside to dry out, but don’t have serial numbers on their equipment. If it is stolen, we are not able to track it because we can’t positively identify it,” said Compton. “In the case of personal property, log all valuables so that they are easily identifiable in the event they are stolen,” he added. In light of the small amount of crime on base, the NAVSTA security department works diligently to keep the base safe. The 178 member ‘community service organization’ works to conduct sobriety, seatbelt and vehicle checkpoints frequently and other crime prevention techniques including lighting surveys, static surveillance and daily patrols of various areas of the island. The best way for residents to avoid falling victim to crime is vigilance and responsibility. “Always travel in groups of two or more, consume alcohol moderately and be aware of your surroundings,” said Master at Arms 1st Class (AW) Anthony Sganga, Bravo Station leading petty officer. “Using the buddy system, especially at night, can reduce the potential for crime and the occurrence of accidents,” said Compton. Servicemembers who commit crime in GTMO, such as theft, are subject to punishment under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. Nonmilitary issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. By educating the GTMO community about crime prevention techniques and getting citizens involved in crime prevention activities, base security believes it can reduce the small number of criminal acts in GTMO and maintain a high quality of life for everyone. Residents facing an emergency should report it to 9-1-1. To report non-emergencies, contact 4105 or 3813. Joyful noise or annoying racket?Everyone has a favorite genre of music, but one person's preference may not be the same as everyone else's around him. When listening to music, be considerate of others and keep music volume at a reasonable level. Remember, no one likes a rude neighbor!

Friday, July 27, 2007Story, photo by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, NAVSTA Public AffairsFerry captain navigates GTMO BaySee FERRY, pg. 54Running late to catch the ferry Saturday morning, you look at your watch with anticipation ... the ferry waits for no one in GTMO. Barreling around the last corner of Mitchner Rd., you breathe a sigh of relief. The ferryboat is still loading its usual odd assortment of government vans, contractor flatbeds, and family minivans for the day’s flight. Waved on by the friendly crew with your luggage in tow, you sit down with a feeling of triumph. And most likely, not a thought is given to the person who makes this trip across the bay possible. “You wouldn’t think it, but there is always something different everyday,” said. Marty Bryant, ferry boat captain. “Whether it be the people we bring across, or JTF operations. We drive more than ferries we also operate all p ort o peration vessels. One thing you have to have is patience, and be flexible; I could be on the ferry one minute and then I might have to jump off the ferry and jump on a tugboat job or a utility boat. So I guess the key is being flexible.” Boat captains like their coffee strong and their winds weak. It’s certain that it takes a particular type of person to navigate these waters day-after-day. “People don’t understand us guys,” chuckled Hal Unruh, one of nine boat captains in GTMO. “The most fun for us is when a ship is getting ready to have an accident and we get in there and stick our little tugboats in between there and save the day for them. That is when everything is done on instinct. Ninety-nine and a half percent of our job goes perfectly. It’s that half percent; that is what makes it all worthwhile.” While some of these close calls might not take place in the waters of GTMO, they still drive a captain to pilot his boat safely. “Part of being a good boat captain is being fearless but also making safety first,” said Bryant. “Being a boat captain you have to be a good boat handler, a good manager, and have good hand-eye coordination. It’s not just running a boat, it’s managing a boat and the crew, the maintenance and day-today functions.” So what are GTMO’s boat captains biggest challenges after piloting the waters of harbors like Norfolk Naval Station? “It’s the wind,” said Unruh, “it affects all vessels but here especially. Normally, you drive the boat into the wind using it to your advantage, but here, you put the wind on your stern, pray it doesn’t move you too much and hope for the best.” Even though the ‘leaving it up to mother nature’ element remains, technology has still replaced a lot of the inherent difficulties early navigators faced. Nestled comfortably next to it’s age-old counterparts lay shiny GPS systems and radars, and a captain cannot deny their convenience. “The technology is great. It makes my job a lot easier,” said Bryant. “It’s not like the old days when you had the old radars and a chart. Nope, I don’t miss the old days, not at all.” Even with the new technology, it can still take between one to two months to become certified for boat captains new to GTMO. One of the reasons is the very ferry they are expected to operate is unfamiliar to most boat captains. “This is a unique vessel,” said Bryant. “ I think the Navy only built two of them. This one has a rudder and propeller on each end. I have never seen anything like it. It’s very sensitive to the wind.” One thing that is not unique to a boat captain's job or any behind-the-scenes worker is battling the ‘average Joe's’ concept about what it is they do. “From the passenger side, people think we run the ferry schedule, we make the regulations, when really, that is all dictated by port services,” said Bryant. “And by our contract we are required to go by those instructions.” Like many contractors for the Navy, there is often a link to military service through time put in during their younger years. And for many the memories built remain as clear as if they happened yesterday. Unruh recalls one of his favorite memories as a young Sailor. “I had been begging a pilot to let me pilot this tug ... ,” remembered Unruh. “Well, the young pilot gave me the opportunity on the USS Saipan We were going

NMCB 133 leadership says that the M9 weapons qualification range is a rare event for the Seabees to take part in during their deployment. “It's great training for us especially during deployment. Weapons familiarity is always great to do,” said Chief Steelworker (SCW) Michael Romero, NMCB 133 assistant admin istration officer in charge. "As Seabees, we are required to qualify annually, so this isRANGE from pg. 1an extra opportunity outside of homeport for us to sharpen our skills," said Romero. Learning how to correctly and safely operate a weapon is no easy task, explained Gunner’s Mate Seaman Apprentice Jeffrey Hichborn, but he has some advice for new and experienced shooters. “The main thing [for shooters] to remember is to stay calm, and remember that they are in a safe environment. As line coaches, it is our job to support the range master while his attention is on facilitating the qualification course. We pay attention to each individual shooter and correct any unsafe techniques," said Hichborn. We also offer shooting advice. Commands interested in participating in range qualifications should contact Chief Gunner’s Mate Joshua Tolleson at 4847 and schedule a time and course date. Seabees from NMCB 133 fire live rounds at their targets from the 3-meter mark during the M9 live fire qualifications recently in GTMO. NMCB 133 is homported in Gulfport, Miss. and is in GTMO for its six month deployment.Photo by MC2 Kimberly WilliamsFERRY from pg. 4into the Pier 7 marker on the north side of the pier. I was on the bow [of his vessel] between the ship and the pier. We were real close to the pier or so I thought and I started having second thoughts about asking for this position. The ship started coming toward me and I started wondering when they were going to let me back out. Then finally he tells me, 'ok, leave.’ I looked down and people looked that big [Unruh's fingers close tight] and the boat didn’t want to steer straight as I was trying to shake my way out because I was a nervous wreck. I finally got out of there. It built some confidence. I had only been driving tugs about a year by that time. I was scared but I was happy too. There are lots and lots of memories.” Even with the memories recollected and experiences weathered, it might be said the heart of a boat captain is born, not made. "I have been doing this so long its second nature to me," added Bryant, "but there are still times when I get butterflies. When you have a real windy day that’s when you earn your paycheck."

Safety begins at home and with every member of the family. Dozens of Internet sites provide safety tips for almost every conceivable situation. Along with the articles on LIFELines, eSafety.com provides articles on safety for all members of the family. The Home — The following tips for protecting young children at home are adapted from a brochure produced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The list is not all-inclusive, but is a good starting point: Bedroom — Put your baby to sleep on her back or side in a crib with a firm, flat mattress and no soft bedding underneath. — Make sure your baby’s crib is sturdy and has no loose or missing hardware. — Never place your baby’s crib or furniture near window blinds or curtain cords. This will prevent babies from strangling on the loop of the cord. To prevent falls, keep children away from windows. Bathroom — To prevent poisoning, keep medicines and cleaning products in containers with safety caps and locked away from children. — Always check bath water temperature with your wrist or elbow before putting your baby in to prevent burns to a baby’s delicate skin. — Never, ever, leave your child alone in the bathtub or near any water, even for a moment. This will prevent children from drowning. Keep children away from all standing water, including water in toilets, 5-gallon buckets, and pools. Kitchen — Don’t leave your baby alone in a highchair; always use all safety straps. This will prevent injuries and deaths from the baby climbing out, falling, or sliding under the tray. Be sure to use safety straps in strollers and baby swings. — Use your stove’s back burners, and keep pot handles turned to the back of stove to prevent deaths and injuries from burns. Keep children away from tablecloths, so they can’t pull down hot foods or liquids on themselves. — Lock household cleaning products, knives, matches, and plastic bags away from children. This will prevent poisonings, bleeding injuries, burns, and suffocation. Living Areas — To prevent deaths and injuries from fire, install smoke detectors on each floor of your home, especially near sleeping areas. Change the batteries each year. — Use safety gates to block stairways and safety plugs to cover electrical outlets. This will prevent injuries from falls and electric shocks. — Keep all small objects, including tiny toys and balloons, away from young children to prevent choking and possible death. In the Car — Ensuring automobile safety is another essential for a safe family. Some of the basics include: — Always use safety belts and child restraint seats for infants and young children. — Make sure the car is mechanically sound at all times. Check the brakes, lights, tires, and transmission, clean the windows and seat belts, and fix anything that is wrong. — On long-distance drives, pack a first-aid kit, blankets, water, snacks, and a flashlight. — Schedule frequent rest stops and pull over if the driver gets tired. — Keep all doors locked and windows rolled up.

(1) The GTMO community and competitors for base yard awards should be aware that person(s) are preying on yard decor on weekend nights for the past month. They stole two pink flamingos, at one week intervals, which have been gracing our fence on Sherman Ave. for the past 10 months. One flamingo returned intact in broad daylight on a Saturday afternoon within an hour after we pasted a “stolen” sign on our fence and made a police report. A stake is still waiting for a flamingo body to return. Most galling is last weekend’s disappearance of our European “dog no poop” sign consisting of a heavy 6inch circular aluminum metal displaying no text, only a picture of a black dog defecating on a white background, and a red diagonal signifying that this is not permitted here. This sign had a 12inch long, thick aluminum stake firmly inserted in the ground. It was a gift from our 80year-old aunt in Germany. Request that this item be returned promptly to where it was, so that all residents can enjoy the decorations.
