Friday, Aug. 10, 2007 Vol. 64 No. 30 Columbia College–GTMO will begin its eight-week August session Aug. 13, and registration is now open. Columbia College offers oncampus and online associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a variety of areas, including business administration and criminal justice administration, plus an online MBA. Students may attend all five sessions a year or just one. On-campus classes meet two nights a week. Columbia College, founded in Missouri in 1851 as a Christian Female College, was the first women’s college west of the Mississippi River to be chartered by a state legislature. The college changed its name to Columbia College in 1970 when it became coeducational. Columbia College–Guantanamo Bay was founded in 2004. Today, it continues to serve adult learners in the area. Columbia College provides accredited, affordable degrees for working adults and military students, serving nearly 25,000 students through its nationwide Campuses, Online Campus, Evening Campus, Day Cam pus and Graduate Studies Program. For more information about Columbia College’s degree programs, call (011) 5399-75555 or visit www.ccis.edu/guantanamo.Columbia college begins new sessionStory by MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public AffairsForty-five years of IndependenceContinued on page 5On Aug. 5, 1962 the British Flag was lowered and the Jamaican Flag was hoisted for the first time signaling the birth of a new nation. The GTMO community has celebrated their independence along side Jamaican residents since the beginning and that tradition continued this past weekend. The ties between the Jamaican people and the residents of Guantanamo Bay began one year earlier in 1961 when recruiting from Jamaica began as a result of the Cuban recruitment prohibition set by the Cuban government. Thirteen skilled Jamaican journeymen began working and living on the base back in 1961. During the water crisis in 1964, President Lyndon Johnson ordered the base to become selfsufficient, and substitutes had to be found for Cuban workers released from employment. On Feb. 12, 1964, the first Cuban employees were dismissed by presidential order. To offset this loss, 209 additional Navy personnel were ordered to the base and 700 male Jamaicans were hired. Guantanamo Bay has always enjoyed the cultural diversity that has resulted from many nationalities working and living together here. One advantage of this diversity is that it allows us to all join in celebrating the accomplishments and history behind what makes each separate country so great. “What a unique experience that we have here, said BM2 Jamie Minton. “We get to enjoy not just one culture here in GTMO, but quite a few throughout the year.” The first week of August we all celebrate the Independence of Jamaica and give thanks to all the Jamaican citizens who live and support the GTMO community. The week long celebration started with many activities that included Domino's, soccer, basketball, bowling and even a Cricket exhibition. Organizing all these events for another year was Gerald Keane, President of the Jamaican Independence Day Committee (JDIC). “I must say that the planning of this year’s activities was extremely difficult for the committee. With the scheduled repaving of the runway coinciding with our plans we had to juggle our planning up to the last minute to be able to land here today. After a week of events it all culminated on Saturday Aug. 4, at the Windjammer Ballroom. A sold out Windjammer Ballroom was the place to be for traditional Jamaican food and a ballroom that was decorated with the three colors of the Jamaican Flag. Yellow on the flag represents the bright sun, the green stands for the productive land and the black represents the hardships suffered in the past. All these Pan-African colors that are used in the flag of Jamaica pay honor to Jamaica’s noteworthy African heritage. Guests from Jamaica arrived throughout the week in order to help with thisPhoto by MC1 Robert LambMaypole Dancers warmed up the crowd at Ferry Landing Beach on Saturday, Aug. 4, as part of an evening of traditional song and dance groups.

Launched in February 2006, the site provides Sailors with links to support the Navy’s IA effort. “This is a ‘one-stop-shop’ for Sailors making the transition from Blue Water to Dirt Sailor,” said Tony Martin, Naval Personnel Development Command knowledge management specialist. “Our goal is provide Sailors practical information and knowledge that will help them and their families.” The IA COP started with just one page of basic information. Today the site contains 12 pages of deployment, combat training, uniform, cultural awareness, and combat theater information. Each page contains a discussion thread and a feedback mechanism so that Sailors can ask questions and share information. With more than 1 million hits, the IA COP is the official information hub where IAs gain and share deployment knowledge and complete pre-deployment online courses. In January 2006, when the Navy IA Program began, deployment information was often scattered and difficult to find. Naval Personnel Development Command created the IA COP on NKO to solve this problem. “Before the IA COP, we were inundated with questions,” said Yeoman 1st Class Rosalyn Reeder, administration leading petty officer at Navy Individual Augmentee Combat Training (NIACT), Fort Jackson, S.C. “The threaded discussion boards and feedback gears reduced the amount of questions we receive by about 85 percent.” According to Martin, the most common questions on the discussion threads are “what will I be doing and what will I need to do my job?” All questions are usually answered within 24 hours by either a deployed Sailor or the senior enlisted advisor in theater. For Chief Master-at-Arms Charlene Mayo, NIACT weapons officer, the community of prac-Individual Augmentees turn to Navy Knowledge OnlineFrom Naval Personnel Development Command Public Affairstice provides Sailors a basic understanding of what combat training is and is not. “Sailors can go on NKO and find out what combat training at Fort Jackson will cover, learn about the weapons that will be issued and take required online training,” said Mayo. To ensure Sailors are getting the right information, the sites content is checked and updated on a weekly basis. “Accurate and timely information saves lives and money,” said Martin. “This community of practice is all about giving Sailors the information and knowledge they need to do their job, take care of their families and —above all — come home. Navy Personnel Command announced plans July 25 to implement DoD changes for the Joint Qualifications System (JQS) to replace the Joint Service Officer (JSO) program effective Oct. 1. The system will supplement the existing Joint Specialty System and will replace the old JSO designation with the new name, Joint Qualified Officer (JQO). “While an officer must be at least a lieutenantDoD makes changes to officer joint service systemBy MC2 Trevor Andersen, Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs commander before they can be designated as a JQO, our duties as leaders and mentors require us to explain this new system and its implications on career management to our wardrooms,” said Vice Adm. John C. Harvey, Chief of Naval Personnel. “Our officers should understand the importance of gaining joint qualification as a part of a professional career as well as in continuing to effectively operate in the future as a part of a joint team,” he said. Under this new system, officers will see new requirements for promotion to O-7. “Effective 1 Oct. 2008, active-component officers must be designated as a JQO prior to appointment to flag rank,” said Harvey. “Captains who are in-zone for promotion to rear admiral [lower half] need to aggressively review their service records to ensure that all joint assignment billets and experiences are documented.” The JQS will allow officers to earn joint qualification through a combination of joint education, experience, training and other military education. “Our Navy routinely operates along side our sister services, allied nations, as well as governmental and non-governmental agencies. Working with other like-minded services is our nature and we will only deepen this cooperation in the future,” Harvey said. Officers who are already designated as JSO will automatically be designated JQO when the system takes effect.


Friday, Aug. 10, 2007James A. Baldwin, Mid-20th century American novelist, once said, “People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.” For two local history buffs, this very concept recently lead them on the trail of an historical accident just miles from Guantanamo Bay. “I wanted to go see the battle fields and learn about Cuzco Wells,” said Lt.j.g. Michael Quigley, intelligence officer with Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay, “and I was interested in learning about a grave where I thought the grave name might be misspelled. When we went out to the cemetery to look at this grave, I noticed in the older part of the cemetery were a series of sailor’s headstones where they all died in April 1906.” “So I thought, ‘What is killing sailors on this day?” Continued Quigley. “Then I noticed the grave of another sailor who died on April 22, maybe from injuries. I knew there was no war going on at this time, so I kept thinking (to myself), what happened on this day?” As with many history-minded human beings, this unanswered question was all it took to inspire Quigley to begin the looking for answers. And along with the help of base historian, Pete Pecolla, the information hunt began. “So Pete and I went back to take pictures of the stones and then went to grave registration in the hospital,” said Quigley, “to see this great old book. And right there in 1906, were the names of the sailors. They were all from the USS Kearsarge.” The battleship, not to be confused with the famous vessel involved in a memorable Civil War naval battle off the coast of Cherbourg, was the fifth battleship the Navy ever built. According to the Naval Historical Center website, USS Kearsarge (BB-5), was commissioned in March 1898 by the Newport News Shipbuilding Company, and became the flagship of the North Atlantic Fleet cruising down the Atlantic seaboard and in the Caribbean. She sailed into Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where, on December 10, 1903, the United States took formal possession of the Guantanamo Naval Reservation. And during her maneuvers in the Caribbean, lay the answer to Quigley’s first question. “The internet is a phenomenal tool,” smiled Quigley. “From there we went and looked up the history of the USS Kearsarge and that is when we found out about officers and crew members that died (along with four men that were seriously wounded), April 13, during an explosion off the coast of Cabo Cruz (about 170 miles from Guantanamo Bay). “Fortunately, the Navy, if you look historically, learns from tragedy,” said Quigley. “It used to be that they would put the fuse in the breech while it was open, but they designed a shield that would prohibit someone from putting the fuse in while the breech open. The Kearsarge had that, but the residue of a previously fired shots was still in the gun itself. There was an explosion of powder in the breech of the cannon. This explosion and subsequent fire melted down into the magazine room below and ten sailors and officers lost their lives. What they (Naval) did because of the Kearsarge fire was build guns with ejectors for the gas to leave the breech making gun fire and naval artillery a lot safer.” From the USS Kearsarge’s tragedy, Quigley was determined to find purpose during his search for knowledge. “It calls attention to the fact that things that happen have consequence,” explained Quigley. “That the things we do matter. You could look at this situation and say, ‘Ok, these sailors died in an accident, …they died for nothing.’ They didn’t. From their deaths came changes in the way guns were made. Safer weapons were made and invented because of their deaths, so they don’t die for nothing. The same could be said for how we learn everyday about the sailors and marines and soldiers who are dying in war. But no one really dies for nothing. This is a way to give value back to their lives. To put their names back on center stage. These people were here.. they served. Finding those very names is where Quigley’s quest is now. Burial sites and the complete names of the two officers, and two enlisted sailors aboard the USS Kearsarge are still unaccounted for. Little unsolved pieces like this are what Quigley loves most about unveiling history for himself. “Its fun to find these people; to find out what remnants and artifacts there are,” said Quigley. “Because its not just names, they are people who served this country… It’s really fun to find them out and remember them. Maybe hundreds of years from nowFinding and making history in GTMOStory by MC2(AW) Honey Nixon, NAVSTA Public AffairsIn a harbor, circa the early 1900s. Kearsarge was painted this way when first completed, in 1900, and this view may have been taken at about that time. Continued on page 5U.S. Naval Historical Center Photograph. 3

Friday, Aug. 10, 2007someone might be looking into Guantanamo Bay History and stumble across any one of us and what we contributed to our nation.” “One of the great things about being in Guantanamo Bay, is there are avenues both here and on the internet, that you can explore your own naval history. Here I am on this quiet little outpost on the southeast side of Cuba and I’m able to find out about the history of one of the few ships in the Navy to be named the Kearsarge... My avocation is history so I am going to continue to do my own independent research on this topic. The next part of his journey is a trip to Arlington cemetery, where Quigley will look for the graves of two men who were awarded the Medal of Honor for their bravery during the battle. “I don’t have an end state. I don’t know what is out there. Maybe when I have learned all there is to learn about theContinued from page 3Kearsarge, then I will focus on other aspects of Guantanamo history.” Quigley also wants to encourage servicemembers in GTMO to take the time to learn about the local history but also not to forget that, they themselves, write it. “There are people out there who perhaps work here who don’t think they are aFinding and making history...Color-tinted postcard published during the early 1900s, showing the ship as she appeared when first completed in 1900.Photo by William H. Rau year’s celebration. U.S. Ambassador to Jamaica, the Honorable Brenda LaGrange-Johnson, and a few representatives from the embassy office arrived early Saturday morning. They attended a meeting with Troy Brooks, Jamaican Employee Committee President, along with stops throughout the base, in order to meet face to face with many Jamaican employees. “On behalf of the United States of America, I am most grateful to all of you, our Jamaican friends, who are strong partners in helping us forge a safer and more prosperous world, remarked Ambassador Johnson. "I salute each and every one of you, as well as your families, for the contributions you have made in service to the United States." Before departing late that afternoon, Ambassador Johnson handed over a note from the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Portia Simpson Miller, to the Jamaican citizens of GuantanamoForty-five years...Continued from page 1Bay. In part it reads: My fellow Jamaicans, today we celebrate 45 years of political independence, a high point in the history of the Jamaican people. The struggles of a long line of freedom fighters that eventually brought us to that historic moment when the Jamaican flag was unfurled, for the first time in the National Stadium. We have come to independence prepared and ready to shoulder our new responsibilities and united, I believe, in one single hope that we may make our small country a safe and happy home for all our people. Over the 45 years, we have maintained a democratic system of government, with an electoral system over the last few years has become more transparent and more accountable. In celebration of the nation’s birthday, I encourage Jamaicans everywhere, to rise up to the highest expectations of those who went before us! As we celebrate our 45th year as a nation, to God be all the glory, honor and praise. Happy Independence Day and may God continue to bless us all.” Performances by the Gumption Band, Maypole, Quadrille and Cumina Dancers also treated the GTMO community to traditional song and dance that had everyone dancing and singing late that evening. “The Jamaican Independence Day celebration is a proud tradition that began in 1962 with the granting of Independence status to Jamaica,” said Keane. Here on the base the tradition has continued and although we cannot match the pomp and fanfare that goes on in Jamaica, at this time of the year we are proud to be able to do our part to ensure that the important achievement is remembered.”5 part of history,” added Quigley, “and yet, they are. If they take some time to research the history of Guantanamo Bay, they will remember they are part of the history here. They are making it everyday. It doesn’t matter what their job is whether you are a postal clerk or mess specialist, it doesn’t matter. They are making history. By looking back at those that come before us, we can help validate who we are.” What advice does Quigley have for residents of GTMO who are interested in the local history? “Start with the historical center, get a hold of Pete Pecola, and find something out,” said Quigley. “Whether it be Admiral Bulkeley, or the Cuban missile crisis. Find something and be flexible because the road you start down may not be the road you end up on.” Photo by MC1 Robert LambAnniah Dancy and Toni-Ann Stewart listened very carefully at the inspiring speeches the y've heard during the Jamaican Independence Day Luncheon and Awards Ceremony.
