Friday, Jan. 18, 2008 Vol. 65 No. 03 JCS Chairman applauds NAVSTA growth, progressJoint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael G. Mullen engages a standing-room-only audience of service members and Department of Defense employees during an all-hands call on board U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Jan. 13. Employees from all four branches of the military and the Coast Guard, attended the 45-minute session.Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen visited Guantanamo Bay [GTMO] servicemembers and held an all-hands call Jan. 13 at Naval Station [NAVSTA] GTMO Windjammer Auditorium. An audience com prised of all five branches of the military packed the au ditorium as the chair man first thanked the servicemembers for their service and then proceeded to a question and answer session. Mullen discussed the importance of the work the professionals in GTMO perform daily and explained the gravity of work done on base from a global perspective. The world, not just the United States, is focused on what is going on here in GTMO, said Mullen. [The work done in GTMO] has to be right because the consequences of getting it wrong are substantial. GTMO has really performed extraordinarily well and really delivered in a very difficult mission. Story, photo by MC2 Kimberly Williams Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs See JCS, page 8

One of these guns is now displayed at the end of the parking lot at the Bayview on Deer Point. Crews began to arrive from the USS DES MOINES. A bucket brigade was formed. Marines from South Toro Cay headed toward the burning ship. In spite of these efforts Stearns could easily see that it was all for naught. To save lives, he gave the order to abandon ship. Men on the bow, trapped and unable to reach the gangway, were forced to leap overboard. Stearns mustered the crew ashore, and none had any gear nor even the basic semblance of a uniform. The danger to the crew had not ended, however. Starting about 11:25 p.m., the ammunition in the magazines, which 77, began to ing fragments of four and six inch shells. The crew took shelter under the cliffs, until the explosions subsided at about 4 a.m. Morning found the crew looking more like circus clowns than sailors as some of the men donned clothing stored ashore by a minstrel troupe. The men searched for any piece of clothing to help protect them from the blazing Cuban sun. In the morning light, tents were erected and the men went into camp near the smoking ribs of their former ship, a complete loss. where she went down, unmolested. Part of her burned out copper-sheathed hull sits upright in the restricted waters south of Deer Point, her sternpost poking to within six feet of the water surface.

Friday, Jan. 18, 2008 6News from the Fleet -Marinette Marine Corporation, which is building the Navys first littoral combat ship, USS Freedom for Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) tour of private and public shipyards throughout the U.S. report on the ship, designed to provide the U.S. Navy with greater flexibility and capability in operating in the littoral or green water coastal areas. The Navy has a gap we need to fill ship is perfectly suited to operate near the shore and to engage in Maritime Security Operations that will ensure the free-flow of commerce and resources is going to be a workhorse in the United States Navy. CNO said the Navy is closing in on some of the critical milestones pleased with the progress he saw dur ing his visit. Bringing a ship into the final stage and getting it to sea is not an easy thing is to get it to sea, get it tested and get it to work doing the Navys mission. As the crew prepares for the final months before bringing the ship to life at its commissioning this fall, the CNO reiterated to them the impor tance of their mission to the future of the Navy. They are fulfilling a very impor tant role in this program and in our Navy. They are the ones who will be responsible for making sure this ship goes to sea and realizes its full potential at sea. They are the ones, the only ones, that will set this class of ship a significant responsibility. But it is a responsibility well suited to a United States Sailor. They are ready and they are eager and I look forward to them taking this ship to sea. The 377-foot Freedom is capable of speeds in excess of 40 knots and can operate in water less than 20 feet deep. The ship will act as a platform for launch and recovery of manned and unmanned vehicles. Its modular design will support interchangeable mission packages, allowing the ship to be reconfigured for antisubmarine warfare, mine warfare, or surface warfare missions on an as-needed basis. Freedom will be manned by one of two rotational crews, blue and gold, similar to the rotational crews assigned to Trident submarines. The crews will be augmented by one of three mission package crews during focused mission assignments. Freedom was christened Sept. 24, 2006. She is slated for commissioning the fall of 2008 in Milwaukee, Wis., and will be homeported in San Diego. As detailed in the 2007-2008 CNO Guidance, building the Navys future understanding of the shipbuilding industry and help inform shipbuilding decisions. It is vitally important that I have up-to-date, first-hand knowledge of the latest developments, technological advances, and infrastructure improveexplained. Shipbuilding is complex, and the decisions Ill make regarding it are critically important to the future of the The eight-day trip also included visits to Portsmouth Shipyard (Brunswick, Maine); three Northrop Grumman Ship Systems sites to include: Ingalls (Pascagoula, Miss.), Gulfport (Gulfport, Miss.); Austal USA Shipbuilding (Mobile, Ala.), and National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (San Diego). This visit will also play a larger role as CNO emphasizes his commitment to making the Navy a Top 50 workplace. On this trip and in those of the fuNavy civilians and family members, as well as business leaders and educators to help define the Navys way ahead and integrate change, as needed.

Mullen praised GTMOs role key principles he implemented to ing his strategic objectives. The naval station here has grown although there have been challenges supporting the very challenging, vital JTF mission. NAVSTA has done great work and I am very proud of everyone here, said Mullen. In closing, Mullen stressed the importance of diversity, change and leadership to the audience. the military are key. Pay attention to it and take care of it because it will make us a better military, said Mullen. Mullen and his wife Deborah also conducted a spouses call dur ing their visit to GTMO. Servicemembers and their spous es were given the opportunity to participate in a question and anwser session about quality of life issues here in GTMO and Navy-wide. home of NAVSTA Commanding GTMO resident Remy Lloyd shakes hands with Deborah Mullen during the spouses call Jan. 13.JCS, from page 1Photo by Bruce Lloyd Mans best friend comes in all shapes and sizes, but do they all have what it takes to be the big dog on campus? On Jan. 27, from 3 5 p.m. at Brandon Field, located across from Zaiser Field, members of the 2008 Navy Ball Committee will be hosting an Every dog has his day event. Kind of a talent show slash obedience contest for canines. The idea for this is to show off your talented pooch and see if he or she has what it takes to be the fastest, biggest, smallest or most obedient dog in town. This is a day solely for the dogs, says Electronics Technician 1st Class (SW/AW) Michael Schiltz. There will be 10 different competitions that the owners can enter the dogs in. The owners will have to keep the dogs on a leash for safety reasons with the exception of the fastest dog and agility course. The fastest dog competition will consist of a predetermined distance so the owner will have to cheer on and encourage their dog to run their fastest. Even if your particular hound doesnt fall under the guidelines of the American Kennel Club [AKC] they can be entered into the cutest, owner look alike, ugliest, best coat of hair portion of the day. The competition is not based on size or shape or the willingness to conduct themselves in an orderly fashion, its all to have a wonderful time. I look at it as a fun Olympics owners to bring their dogs. If the owner does not feel they have a shot at placing in the competitions I encour age them to bring out their dog just to enjoy a day out that they may have not had in a while during the busy schedules, added Schiltz. Many dogs that currently live in Guantanamo Bay probably dont have the desire to demonstrate their willingness to work with their owner like the dogs that are used at NAVSTA Security Department, but the average family pet might not have the agility or the concentration to negotiate an obstacle course or possibly race against a clock. Participants are often arranged in classes to equalize the competition for all sizes of dogs. The owners will enter their dogs into different competitions which they will be eventually judged. The owners really just need to maintain control of their dogs, especially in the beginning. I would hope to find out that all the dogs will get along and enjoy each others company. The owners will get a chance to see different breeds they have not seen or did not know were on base and hopefully enjoy the day out with their dog/s, said Schiltz.

Corelle Street, parent of two children at the Child Development Center had a positive perception of what the program means for the candidates from a parental point of view.

FeatureFriday, Jan. 18, 2008 Imagine sitting in a dimly lit, smoked filled ballroom in San Francisco in the early 1960s. The dance floor is covered by large round tables, four chairs per piece, lit only by candlelight. Four primary colored stage lights focused on a woman who is all alone on stage and singing American standards, while patrons sit silently, staring and dreaming of a lost love or a loved one sitting beside them. For two hours Kia Graham, a lo cal contractor, sang her heart out at the Windjammer Ballroom Jan. 11. The music she sang was soulful, bluesy, intimate and for some audience members a quite soothing. The audience was treated to a combination of pop, blues, gospel and country songs along with sev eral of Kias original compositions. Kias blend of smoky smooth vocals and command of the stage gained and held everyones total attention throughout the two set show, said John Tickner "Kia sings from the heart. She brings the audience with her on a journey of emotions. She can make you laugh, cry, sway and singalong with her all in one set, said Dianne Tiano. She was mezmerizing and had a calming effect on the audience," said Karissa Sandstrom It was a joy to watch her. Kia Graham is not shy when it located at the Bayview, is holding a Karaoke night you might be able to catch Kia singer there as well. Kias voice is definitely not new to Guantanamo Bay (GTMO). Shes been singing here for years. My music is pretty personal to me, and thus sharing it with everyone is very personal, said Kia Graham. The first time was October of 2005, when I was still here as a Sergeant in the military [Army]. I sang at the Windjammer for almost 2 hours, and had a great time. It was pretty relaxed, like an MTV-Unplugged, she replied. The songs may have been familiar to some people in the audience, but the voice is all her own. She seems to be very comfortable on stage and has a connection to her audience. Ive been singing since I was a kid. Ive taken choir in school, but I never had any professional training or anything. I just like to sing, she added. Kia still gets nervous when she performs, but admits that being ner vous might be a good thing. I always get nervous when I sing. Somebody once told me that getting nervous just means that you want to do your best, and that if you ever stop getting nervous then you have lost the passion for what you do. I relax a little after a song or two, but yeah, I have to admit I am a little shaky at the beginning. Shes no a stranger to singing for big crowds either. She sang the National Anthem at the Filipino Independence Day Celebration for the past two years in a row, and for the GTMO African American Association. So what does the future hold for Kia Graham? Well, I plan to leave here soon to further my career and attend a few more military schools, so this will be my last official performance here on island. I have people constantly asking me to sing, or come out to karaoke, so I figured Id please every request in one concert, she answered. I have been told, begged, and suggested many times that I should try out for American Idol, but that opportunity has not yet been a possibility in my chaotic schedule thus far. Maybe someday I will record my music and try to get into the music industry, but it is not my main focus right now. I love to sing, and enjoy it as a hobby, but that is all I have time for right now. Although, I would hate to leave this world regretting that I never tried to pursue my passion for music. Story By MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA Public Affairs
