Servicemembers from all five branches of the military came out to honor the Navy's 232nd birthday with an evening of festivities including a social hour, dinner and dancing.The United States Navy celebrated its 232nd birthday Oct. 13 and Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) residents commemorated the event with a celebration that evening at the Windjammer. Servicemembers and DoD employees along with their families packed the ballroom in their Class 'A' uniforms and Sunday's best to honor the sea service's commissioning. This year's theme was 'Honoring our Legacy, the Sailor.' The Chief of Naval Operations honored the special day by remembering the grassroots of the organization. "From our humble beginning with six frigates more than 200 years ago, we have become the most dominant and influential naval force ever to sail the world’s oceans. We ensure freedom of the seas, project power in support of national interests and support allies and partners around the world. We are at once powerful, yet compassionate whenSee BALL, page 3reaching out to others in need," said Adm. Gary Roughead in his birthday message to the fleet. Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter reflected on the ongoing sacrifice made by both Sailors and civilians working in the Navy on a daily basis in his recognition of the Navy's birthday. "It is you, the Sailors and civilians of our Navy, who shoulder the burden and make the sacrifices that have made this success possible. The U.S. Navy has an impact on the world that goes beyond what you may realize. From deterring aggression to protecting sea lanes to projecting power ashore to offering humanitarian assistance to victims of natural disasters, your work is vital to the security of the United States. As those who have volunteered to serve, you put on the uniform everyday and dedicate your lives to a noble cause. On this 232nd birthday of the United States Navy, take quiet pride in knowing that your service and your sacrifice will continue to do honor to a great nation," said Winter. The GTMO ball was coordinated by the a committee of volunteers comprised of Sailors from NAVSTA and it's tenant commands, as well as military spouses and members of the community. "The highlights of the Navy Ball for me were being involved in the

Gary Roughead assumed office as the 29th Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) during a ceremony held at Leutze Park aboard Washington Navy Yard Oct. 11. Upon Senate confirmation, Roughead relieved Adm. Mike Mullen — who now serves as Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff — as CNO Sept. 29. The ceremony served to formally recognize Roughead’s assumption of office. Secretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter served as the ceremony’s guest speaker. During his remarks, he said Roughead takes the Navy’s helm during a “very challenging time in our nation’s history.” He added that the Navy’s number one priority must be maintaining a long-term perspective and building a Navy “capable of meeting 21st century challenges.” ”Given the uncertain future path of potential adversaries, the growing concern over nuclear and missile technology proliferation, the increased focus on submarines and naval power by many nations, we simply cannot afford to reduce our historical commitment to supremacy atFrom the Chief of Naval Operations Public AffairsFleet welcomes new CNOsea,” Winter said. “Our new Chief of Naval Operations shares this point of view.” Winter went on to say that Roughead has a long-term strategic perspective, and a long track record of being an exceptional leader in challenging positions both at sea and ashore. ”He is the right leader to assume command of the Navy during these challenging times, and he takes the helm of an organization of which America is justly proud,” he said. After thanking the President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Navy and Mullen, Roughead said he was excited to be the CNO, and was honored and humbled by the “scope and sweep of the task ahead.” He pointed out that though the Navy has undergone many changes, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the “centrality of the American Sailor who remains the face of sea power around the world.” Roughead also took the opportunity to reiterate his top three priorities; maintaining current warfighting readiness, building a Navy for tomorrow and providing for our people. ”People are the key,” Roughead emphasized. “All we acquire and all we do is of little worth without the people who give it value.” "Our policies must reflect the diversity of our nation. Our policies and practices must enable us to attract, recruit, and retain the men and women of America,” he explained. “Our policies must address the many rewards of service in the United States Navy, and we must be unwavering in our obligation to take care of those who serve our Navy, military and civilian, and their families.” Roughead took the opportunity to speak about the new maritime strategy — the first unified maritime strategy signed by all three of the nation’s maritime services which will be released next week at the 18th International Seapower Symposium. Roughead said he attended the Symposium two years ago, and there were about 60 countries represented. ”Next week we return to Newport for the 18th Seapower Symposium, and this time, there will be over 100 countries represented in Newport,” he said. Roughead believes the increase is due to more nations understanding the imperative for sea power, and that security and prosperity depend upon the free flow of commerce on the world’s oceans. ”They see that one nation does not do it alone,” Roughead explained. “They see that cooperation is better than confrontation.” He added that it commits the nation’s maritime services to working with partners around the world as a force for peace. ”I’m optimistic about the course that we are steering, and I remain inspired by those who serve in our great Navy.” For more news from the Chief of Naval Operations, visit www.news.navy.mil/local/cno/ .Adm.

Friday, Oct. 19, 2007 6Creature Feature: Creature Feature: Creature Feature: Creature Feature: Creature Feature: Cuban Racer Cuban Racer Cuban Racer Cuban Racer Cuban RacerStory provided by Jos B. Montalvo, Natural Resources Manager, Environmental DepartmentTo some it’s a scavenger hunt with high-tech toys. To others, it’s a consuming hobby. But the most accepted definition of geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for Global Position System (GPS) users. A GPS receiver is an electronic device that uses satellites to pinpoint your position, within around 6-20 feet, on the planet. GPS Units can range from $100 to $1000 depending on the kind of capabilities you are looking for. The game means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Some want a high number of finds, some just want to see cool places and others just want to learn how to use their equipment. The basic idea is to set up “caches” around the planet and share the locations of these caches on the internet. SeekersBy Jos B. Montalvo, GTMO Natural Resources ManagerContinued, page 9Treasure Hunting in GTMOthen find the caches by entering coordinates into a GPS unit and following the signal to the prize, in which goodies are hidden at interesting locations. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is, if they take an item, they should try to leave something in return. A Cache is a hidden container filled with a log book, pencil/pen and souvenir that other geo-cache finders have concealed. Caches can contain anything from novels to knickknacks to postcards. The basic rules of the game is take one item and replace it with one of your own, then tell your tale in the logbook that almost always accompanies the cache. A hitchhiker is an item that is placed in a cache, and has instructions to travel to other caches. Sometimes they have logbooks attached so you can log their travels. A Travel Bug is an example of a hitchhiker. Travel Bug is a traceable tag that you attach to an item. This allows you to track your item. The item becomes a hitchhiker that is carried from cache to cache (or person to person) in the real world and you can follow its progress online. Example of a Travel Bug Offset Caches – They are not found by simply going to some coordinates and finding a cache there. With the Offset Cache the published coordinates are that of an existing historical monument, plaque, or even a benchmark that you The Cuban Racer, Alsophis cantherigerus is the most commonly seen species of snake on the base. It is found throughout Cuba and prefers habitats such as grassy and wooded areas, as well as gardens and beaches. It is usually observed in xeric (desert or dry) habitats but may also be seen cooling off in the shade of a tree or structure. There are different subspecies of this snake scattered throughout the Antilles. This snake is also related to the more familiar North American Black Racer but with the added adaptation of mild venom in its saliva delivered by enlarged rear teeth and very pungent musk glands. The body of the Cuban Racer is a light or grayish brown with black speckled on its dorsal surface, or topside. The Racer also has a dark brown or black stripe passing from the nose, through the eyes. They mostly grow to be two to three feet long but can exThe large grooved teeth at the back of its mouth inject the toxin into the prey. Like their North American cousins, Cuban Racers are somewhat aggressive when threatened and, when handled, will attempt to bite in a viscous manner. Therefore, it is strongly advised to not bother this or any other species of snake, even though the venom in its saliva, in most cases, will not affect humans. Unlike boas, the Cuban Racer is not a constrictor. Because Cuban Racers are abundant and have adapted well to the human environment, personnel will most likely encounter them near their homes and work places. Their presence does not mean the snake is a nuisance in need of control. They are actually very beneficial snakes who exert a level of control over mice, rats, and other pests. ceed five feet and two inches in diameter. Unlike some snakes that have elliptical pupils, the Cuban Racer has round pupils. The scales under its tail area are divided as opposed to entire scales on other areas of the body. These scales have 2 apical pits at tip which are used in delivering the musk odor from the glands. The Cuban Racer is a diurnal creature, meaning it is very active during the daytime. It is a predator and will consume just about any small prey item it comes across, which includes, but is not limited to, curly-tail lizards, anoles, frogs, and even sea turtle hatchlings. When approached, they will quickly slither out of sight, and when it feels it is threatened it has the ability to flatten the ribs in its neck, producing an appearance of a cobra-like hood. Although there are no poisonous snakes on Cuba (i.e. vipers), the Cuban Racer uses its mild venom in the saliva to help subdue prey.


Friday, Oct. 19, 2007 7“First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the Sailor of the week!"Sailor of the WeekMCSN Ted Cartwright a.k.a. 'D.J. Glasspack', Naval Media Center Broadcast Detachment GTMOUSNH can help you 'kick the habit' Are you a cigarette smoker looking to kick the habit? U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (USNH) holds a smoking cessation program every Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. Lt. Steven Bernick, Staff Physician, Internal Medicine says patients should enroll in the course one week before they are ready to quit smoking. “This will be a multi-faceted program that includes education, group discussion, individual counseling, and medication therapy all in one convenient setting,” said Bernick. “We start with a brief presentation that highlights the harmful effects of tobacco use. The specific topic will vary from week to week. Next will be a 15-20 minute group discussion, during which time individuals have the opportunity to learn from one another as they share coping strategies that have (and have not) worked for them over the preceding weeks,” he added. “Participation in this discussion is encouraged, but not mandatory. Finally, each individual will meet briefly for a one-on-one visit with a provider to tailor medication therapy to their specific needs and desires. They then proceed directly to the pharmacy to pick up their medications. The following Wednesday, it all starts again. We anticipate that each individual will spend between 8-12 weeks attending clinic, however their will be no specific limit on how long they can attend,” said Bernick. The program will be held in the Primary Care Clinic on the first floor of USNH. Bernick says while many smokers are aware that smoking is bad for their health in general, many do not realize that each drag of a cigarette will change their life forever. “It’s now common knowledge that cigarette smoking causes heart disease, cancer, and strokes, as well as significantly aging the skin and decreasing exercise capacity. But many people don’t realize that smoking actually shortens their life span. In fact, on average, a person that smokes a pack or more of cigarettes each day lives 7 years less than someone who never smoked. That’s almost a whole decade off of their life,” said Bernick. Throughout the Navy, there are several smoking cessation programs that have helped thousands of Sailors to become smoke-free. “This program is modeled after one I participated in at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, which was extremely successful,” said Bernick. “One of my first enrollees had been smoking for more than 60 years, and had undergone not one but two heart bypass procedures. He managed to quit smoking, after multiple failed attempts in the past, using this approach. I figure if he can quit, anybody can,” said Bernick. November is the month that the American Cancer Society holds its annual Great American Smokeout It is held on the third Thursday in the month and challenges individuals to quit smoking for 24 hours with the hope that this will lead them toward a tobacco-free life. This year, the 31st annual event will be held Nov. 15. For more information on the Great American Smokeout, or on the Tobacco Cessation Clinic, please call 72944.Story by HM2 Travis Gann, USNH GTMO

One is the Military Association of GeoCaches Finders with more than 30 Chapters including one in Germany and other in North Korea. Presently there are 43,824 active caches in California, 12,984 in Florida, 5,468 in Virginia, 51 in Puerto Rico, 16 in Dominican Republic and 7 in Cuba; just to mention a few sites. Of those 7 in Cuba 3 are in GTMO. The names of those caches are: GTMO Old Hospital (3 visits), GTMO-See the Sea (14 visits) and GTMO-the other side (20 visits). The Environmental Department will soon be creating a number of caches to encourage the visit of historic landmarks, disseminate the knowledge surrounding historical events and provide fun at the same time to the residents. These will be listed on www.geocaching.com. There are more than 50 monuments around the base, classified as Historical Landmarks, Memorials and Anchors and Artillery. Some are well known by the residents, others are hidden and some are in restricted areas but each hold a lot of history and tradition. The caches hunting shall be performed following all the base security regulations and the environmental stewardship responsibilities. All listed GTMO locations will be in unrestricted access locations.
