The Gazette will resume normal operation July 4. Editor's Editor's Editor's Editor's Editor's Note: Note: Note: Note: Note: This years rainfall along with high temperatures and humidity has Guantanamo Bay residents seeing black. For the last few months, residents have noticed that a black residue is accumulating on their doors and windows. No its not the "Plague," a virus or even mold. Its just plain, old mildew. According to the GTMO Housing Director Rudy Sammons, the mildew buildup is due to high levels of rain and humidity, but also could be attributed to residents lifestyles. Most of what you see on the exterior surfaces is actually mildew, not mold, said Sammons. Areas that do not receive direct sunlight may experience some mildew, but there are a lot of people who really like to crank down their thermostats and then open a door or window. When there are drastic changes in temperature, mold and mildew may occur. Mold is most likely to grow where there is water source or dampness, such as Mildew matters in GTMO Story by MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA PAO in bathrooms and basements. Removing the source of moisture is critical to preventing more mold growth. We work closely with the Industrial Hygienist at the Naval Hospital. If we have persistent mold/mildew problems, we contact them for assistance/recommendations," said Sammons. Most of mold typically found is not hazardous to healthy individuals. However, too much exposure to mold may cause or worsen conditions such as asthma, hay fever, or other allergies. The most common symptoms of overexposure are cough, congestion, runny nose, eye irritation, and aggravation of asthma. We have not had any cases of the 'black' mold that is a health concern," said Sammons. If you believe that you or your familiy have symptoms caused by exposure to mold, see a physician immediately.
Friday, May 23, 20083 NAVSTA GTMO participates in training exercise Story by MC2 Kim Williams NAVSTA PAO Feature Here in GTMO, we have no choice but to rely on each other across the base. One team, one fight we will get the job done ." Lt. Robert Trujillo, Installation Training Team CoordinatorNaval Station (NAVSTA) Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) and some of its tenant commands conducted an installation training team (ITT) assessment May 15 at the NAVSTA Brig. The training gives you an idea on how to respond in the first few steps of an emergency situation, but more importantly, it prepares the watch team to initiate a chain reactions that lead them to regain control of the situation and engage others response teams in the efforts, said Warrant Officer Mario Batiz, Installation Training Team Advisor. The ITT is made up of personnel from NAVSTA and tenant commands and conducts intergrated training for the purpose of assessing the training of first responders and other watchstanders during a variety of drills and exercises. There are four intergrated training events installations are required toPhoto by MC2 Kim Williamsparticipate in each year. "ITT assess how well the exercise participants work together collectively as a team to combat an emergency," said ITT Coordinator Lt. Robert Trujillo. "The ITT is designed to enhance any areas we have that may be deficient like response time to the scene of an accident," said Trujillo, "we collect training lessons learned and use that information for upcoming drills and exercises." The goal of the ITT is to ensure that its installation has a capable workforce that can effectively and collectively combat any emergency on island. The GTMO ITT team was tasked with responding to a simulated riot at the NAVSTA Brig by prisoners and migrants being held at the location. The rioters brutally attacked a prison guard, started a small fire and continuously defied orders to stand down. NAVSTA Personnel had to respond quickly and effectively in conjunction with tenant commands to remedy the situation. Participants in the ITT expressed the importance of teamwork and how every department plays an important role in getting the mission accomplished. It is amazing how we may each have only a small slice, but bring us together in an coordinated effort and those small pieces make up a giant pie, said Master Chief Information Systems Technician(SW/ AW) Amanda Alston, ITTDC1 Raymond Halstead and ET1(AW/SW) Joseph Cabornida apprehend prisioners during a simulated riot at the NAVSTA Brig.*CORRECTION From the May 16 issue, page 6 "Traffic violations increase in GTMO article. The quote in column two, paragraph two should read, "The traffic board is an administrative forum, not a legal one, said Chief Magistrate Cmdr. Jeff Johnston. There is a connection between someones GTMO driving record and their on-base privileges elsewhere. The Consolidated Law Enforcement Operation Center (CLEOC) system tracks everyones driving throughout the military services, on all installations. So if you pick up a six-month suspension the day before you leave GTMO, youll spend the first six months of your next tour bumming a ride from the main gate. assistant coordinator. Here in GTMO, we have no choice but to rely on each other across the base," said Trujillo. "One team, one fight we will get the job done. Photo by MC2 Kim Williams
Friday, May 23, 20084News NMCB 74 helps repair Sea Cadet headquarters Story by SWC Donald Farwell NMCB 74 DET GTMO Photo by MC1 Robert Lamb Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 74 Detachment Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) members donated their off-hours to lend a helping hand to the local Sea Cadet unit by repairing their new headquarters building. Since 1958, the Sea Cadets have provided an exceptional learning environment for young men and women between ages 13 and 17. As with any organization, they were looking for a place to call their own. The base agreed to sign over a small building that had long since been abandoned. We are taking this one step at a time, said Lt. Mark Christensen. We will start with this awning and then move to the next task on this project as we get materials from around the base. The brush was over grown and the local rodent and insects had invaded the building. The first time we looked at it, the floors were covered with rotting vegetation and termite damaged wood, said Equipment Operator 1st Class Dale Worley, NMCB 74. The Seabees obtained most of the materials from old projects around the base and did the work in their off time. The Seabees have completed the awning and are now working to replace the grill that will be used for group cook outs and Sea Cadet command functions. Once the building has been cleared of the termites, the Seabees will replace two of the rafters and put a new roof on the building. NMCB 74 is midway through a six month deployment to GTMO in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Photo provided by Lt. M. Jason Christensen CM1(SCW) Victor Hinds hammers a few more nails into a joist hanger in preparation to lay the sheet metal roof.

8Friday, May 23, 2008The Guantanamo Bay First Class Petty Officers Association (FCPOA) conducted a run May 17 to raise funds for the Lake County, Ohio, Committee on Family Violence, Inc. also known as "Forbes House". Forbes House, the only safe shelter for battered women and their children in the Lake County, Ohio area, sustained water damage from a flood in December 2007. According to Ohio reporter John Horton, a failed sump pump flooded the bottom floor of Forbes House, effectively shutting down Lake Countys refuge for victims of domestic violence. The damaged shelter has turned away 13 families, and repair costs may reach $25,000 before the doors open again, said Horton. Because the domestic shelters insurance policy didnt cover sump pump failure, the cost would have to come out of the shelters own funds. Board member Frank Hanus said the shelter needs a lot of help to overcome this setback. All proceeds from the FCPOA will go toward the purchase of desks, conference tables, chairs, and other items that were ruined in the flood. First I would like to say thank you! It is very kind and generous of the association members to think of Forbes House, especially the women and children we serve," said Mary Barnes, Forbes House interim director. "We appreciate any and all fundraising efforts by the Navy petty officers. Your generosity with your time and effort while you are away from your home and loved ones speaks to your dedication and thoughtfulness for those in need. The FCPOA raised more than $1,000 in donations from the run/walk. The Association wants to assist organizations, anywhere, that are in need. We dont think we can fix all problems or wipe out any one thing in particular, but we have decided we will always try, "said Electronics Technician (SW) 1st Class Jerry Ramm.

Friday, May 23, 20089 The Defense Department and U.S. military are better prepared than ever to aid disaster-relief efforts, and have improved measures for tracking military families affected by catastrophe, a top Pentagon official said yesterday. Among other services, department entities are poised to assist with evacuations, emergency transportation and search-and-rescue missions as the nation braces for the hurricane season that starts June 1, Paul McHale, assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and Americas securityBy John J. Kruzel American Forces Press Service Military better prepared than ever for disaster relief, official says affairs, said. Today, the Department of Defense active, reserve and National Guard is better prepared to assist civil authorities than at any other time in our nations history, McHale said at a Hurricane Awareness Day news conference at the Federal Emergency Management Agency here. McHale said the department understands its role in catastrophic relief and has worked with FEMA to put in place a wide range of missions to support a national response. In the event of disaster, the Pentagon is prepared to coordinate FEMA logistics on military bases, to deploy emergency communications rapidly, and to deliver ready-made meals, water and power generators. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff praised the increased role the Defense Department has assumed over recent years. [The people of the Defense Department] have been phenomenal partners over the last couple of years and have become really fully integrated with our planning system and our approach in a way that was not the case previously, he said. The Pentagon has more closely integrated its planning with the National Guard Bureau, U.S. Northern Command, and state adjutants general, McHale said. Guardsmen are ready to deploy to Gulf Coast and East Coast states where hurricanes are most likely to hit and military forces are prepared to protect constitutional rights and provide law enforcement if either system breaks down in the wake of a disaster.
