Friday, June 6, 2008 Vol. 65 No. 23 Photo by Lt. Cmdr. Eileen D'Andrea Photo by Lt. Cmdr. Eileen D'AndreaBoat Regatta sails into GTMO Story by MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA PAO What floats your boat? Will it sink or will it float? This was the main conversation surrounding the Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s (MWR) 2008 Great Cardboard Boat regatta May 31. Participants spent months, weeks and in some cases, a few days to construct sturdy boats, out of cardboard. Thirty-one boats, a GTMO record number of entries, entered into the competition and hundreds of spectators turned out to watch crews paddle their boats to victory; or sink in the process. “It was one of the biggest turnouts I’ve seen," said Lt. j.g. Tony Vader, Assistant NAVSTA Public Works officer. People arrived early and stood on the shore of the GTMO Bay and along the edge of the dock and wondered at the shapes and sizes of some of these cardboard creations. Chief Master at Arms Alissa Chumley, crewmember of “USS Chief ,” watched from the shore as the youth division started out the day’s events. “Every year the boats get better and better," said Chumley. “I don’t know who had more fun, the kids or the adults. One of the kid’s boats had wings that actually flapped. I had a blast. I’m so glad that we were able to participate this year. When I first saw the USS Chief I couldn’t wait for Saturday to get here. We had so much fun; I just wish we had room for the entire Chief’s Mess to be on board with us. This is one of my most favorite memories of being in GTMO.” Participants went the extra miles with their cardboard entries this year. A paddle boat, Viking ship, tiki bar and a large replica jeep were just some of the elaborate entries this year. The object was to race their boats 400 yards, stay intact and avoid being sunk by some disgruntled landlubber who couldn’t finish the race themselves. Crewmembers who decided to stay on shore began lofting water balloons at the competition in order to distract or sink the competition. This year’s winner in the Youth Division was Nickolas Sandstrom. His helmsman ship of the “November, India, Charlie, Kilo” boat cruised into the shore the fastest. After watching patiently from the shore it was time for Chumley and the rest of the adults, to take their places onboard their corrugated crafts. The boats filled with potential shark bait and a few secret weapons, water balloons, lined up and prepared for the word go. As fast as you could say “shiver me timbers” a few boats lost their even keel to survive and sank to the bottom of “Old Davies Locker.” But off in the distance, cruising just as gentle as you could be was a long canoe sort of boat. It was the creation of Vader and See BOAT page 4 Photo by MC1 Robert LambUSS Chief crewmembers CSC Al Palomo, MAC Alissa Chumley, CEC Craig Thomas, NAVSTA Command Master Chief Keith Carlson, FCC Tom Edwards, BMCS Vic Gonzales and first-mate Aiden Chumley stroke their way to the shoreline during the 2008 Cardboard Boat Regatta May 31.

Mark Buzby as commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, in Guantanomo Bay, at a change of command ceremony, May 27. Guest speaker Adm. James Stavridis, commander, U.S. Southern Command, congratulated Buzby on the job he and his Troopers have done in the past year of the safe, humane and transparent detention of enemy combatants. "This is a command where scrutiny is part of everything you do down here,” Stavridis said of the media attention given to Buzby and by extension the work being done by his Troopers. “The only response to have is diligence, discipline, pride, professionalism, compassion, steadiness and grace under pressure. You do it every day and for that you must be thanked.” During his last address as the JTF commander, Buzby thanked his command staff and highlighted the professionalism of the JTF Troopers who served under his command for the past year. ”You are inheriting the finest military unit that I have ever been associated with,” said Buzby to Thomas. “There’s no denying that you are being handed a tough mission and are in for the professional challenge of your life, but I am confident that you will find the rewards are many and long lasting.” ”You have forged a legacy of outstanding service,” Thomas said. Thomas most recently served as the director of Joint Operations Directorate on the staff of U.S. Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk, Va. Buzby has been confirmed for appointment to the rank of rear admiral (upper half) and is assigned as the deputy chief of staff for Global Force Management and Joint Force Operations, N3/N5, U.S. Fleet Forces Command. JTF Guantanamo conducts safe and humane care and custody of detained enemy combatants. JTF Guantanamo is committed to the safety and security of American service members and civilians working inside its detention facilities.Story by MC2 Nat Moger JTF-GTMO PAO Sideboys render honors to Rear Adm.

Friday, June 6, 20083Feature Photo by MC2 Kim WilliamsNMCB 74 completes phase one of K-SPAN project Story by MC2 Kimberly Williams NAVSTA PAO Photo by MC2 Kim Williams Builder 3rd Class April Richardson, Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 74 digs trenches to drain water that collected in the footer of a future K-SPAN building during heavy down pours in GTMO May 31. NMCB 74 will construct two K-SPANs at the location, which will be used for supply and equipment storage. NMCB 74 is deployed to GTMO as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.Naval Mobile Battalion (NMCB) 74 Detachment Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) completed phase-one of a K-SPAN construction project May 27. A crew of Seabees from the detachment is tasked with constructing two K-SPAN buildings that will eventually be used for storage. “This K-SPAN project is one of several projects the detachment has been tasked to work on while in GTMO,” said NMCB 74 Detachment Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) Officer in Charge Lt. Jason Christensen. “Some of the other projects we have worked on while in GTMO include the new Leeward fire engine garage, the GTMO River Bridge and continual repairs to the Perimeter Road,” said Christensen. Builder 3rd Class (SCW) Brandon Hardy is the crew leader for the K-SPAN project and has 8 Seabees working on his crew. “This is a unique opportunity for me to lead this project as a third class and to be in charge of a $300,000 project,” said Hardy. “In Homeport, you would have to be at least a second class to serve as a crew leader.” According to Christensen, the use of Seabee labor for this project saved the Navy thousands of dollars had it used a contractor. The Seabees were able to finish phase one of the project on schedule, but the weather in GTMO threw an unexpected curveball into the rest of the K-SPAN project’s schedule. “The biggest challenge about working in GTMO is the weather,” said Hardy, “but as a Seabee, you have to be resourceful and flexible enough to think outside of the box and act accordingly whenever obstacles present themselves. While the rain we received recently may set us back a few man days from our original schedule, Seabees are here to learn to construct, in whatever conditions we encounter, so we will always find a way to adapt and overcome.”NMCB 74 has been deployed to GTMO since February 2008 and the detachment is scheduled to leave in August. Seabees are here to learn to construct, in whatever conditions we encounter, so we will always find a way to adapt and overcome."BU3 (SCW) Brandon Hardy, NMCB 74 DET GTMO

Jason ChristensenSailor of the WeekFuel tank project approvedEnsign Ian Underwood. “The idea came to me while eating a banana,” said Vader. “Somebody suggested that we be the banana rats, but we couldn’t find yellow paint or ears. So we went with a grey hull, which is conveniently the color of duct tape.” MWR Director Craig Basel watched as members of a cardboard boat shaped like a banana maneuvered their way through the crowd of boats and the waters of the GTMO Bay. “You can tell that people really enjoy this event, said Basel. “They spend lots of quality time working on their boats, thinking up themes and designing costumes. It’s really a popular event." Whether participants were promoting their departments, commands or just making new memories with friends and family, the idea was to get creative and have a great time. Winners in the Adult or Open Division were: 1st Place, “The Banana Boat;” Best Looking Boat, “USS Red Rover,” U.S. Naval Hospital; Best Titanic Sinking went to “Udder Chaos;” JTF public affairs; Best Name was “Road Kill Gourmet;” Best Theme went to “Wiki Tiki” and most creative was the "Radio GTMO Jeep." Boat, from page 1 Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) has always emphasized the importance of flexibility in accomplishing any mission. With a much larger population now than in 2001, there has been an increase in the base’s power requirements, fuel for aircraft transiting through and to GTMO and an increase in the number of USCG ship visits. These additional requirements made it obvious that the infrastructure to support these requirements needed to be upgraded. Working with the Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) and the Fleet Industrial Supply Center (FISC) Jacksonville Det Guantanamo Bay, a plan was devised that would increase and consolidate fuel storage capability and replace aging infrastructure that in some cases is over 90 years old. The week prior to Memorial Day, representatives from Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Naval Operational Logistics Supply Center (NOLSC), Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and Fleet & Industrial Supply Center (FISC) Jacksonville Detachment, Guantanamo Bay, along with design engineers, conducted meetings and discussed in depth, a few major repair projects that would improve the way GTMO receives and stores fuel here. According to Cmdr. Toby Swain, NAVSTA supply officer, two particular projects would reduce the number of tankers delivering fuel to GTMO. “There are a number of other projects the fuels division has pending...the three most critical are the replacement of 370 linear feet of an F-76, distillate fuel normally used in shipboard diesels, receipt line to pier Charlie, the replacement of approximately 4,500 feet of pipeline that delivers F-76 to the power plant and adding a 55,000 barrel (1.2 million gallon) fuel tank. The replacement of the pipelines, parts of which are almost 50 years old, would ensure our ability to receive and dispense fuel efficiently. Without the desalinization pipeline we would have to truck about 30,000 gallons of F-76 a day to the power plant…a labor intensive and long evolution.” “The new tank will increase capacity and allow us to convert an older and smaller JP-5 tank, JP-5 is a jet fuel that weighs 6.8 pounds per gallon and remains the primary jet fuel for most Navy aircraft, to F-76 increasing capacity for fuel for the power plant and thereby reducing the number of tankers delivering fuel to GTMO,” added Swain. The major discussion was to design and build the best available above ground storage tanks available. A contract has been awarded and the engineering and design phase should be complete by August of 2008, but actual construction of the pier and storage tanks wouldn’t start until 2010.Story by MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA PAO GMSN Bryan Ellis NAVSTA Weapons Dept.

NAVSTA outlines water safety rules "Although normally cloaked in a well made coat of common sense, today I chose to be an exhibitionist." Not words to live by if you enjoy swimming, diving, fishing, or boating in Guantanamo Bay (GTMO). It doesn’t take much to loose your privileges for a few months or even permanently. Contrary to what some [who’ve been in GTMO a bit too long] might believe, use of the bay is a privilege not a right. After three years as harbor magistrate, I’ve come to realize it’s not enough to have regulations in place; constant propagation of regulatory knowledge is required to compensate for the inherent drain on corporate knowledge a high turnover of personnel presents. In an effort to replenish corporate knowledge straight from the annals of Harbor Court, I’ve put together 10 tips designed to keep you on a course due south of my bench. Follow them and you’ll most likely avoid landing on the rocks with your privileges. 1)Know the bay, beaches, and boundaries before setting out on your adventure. Do not go past an imaginary line drawn between the fence line and large metal buoy at Kittery Beach. 2)Use the buddy system. A solo SCUBA diver recently asked some skin divers if he could tag along [negative ghost rider that pattern is full.] 3)Have a dive flag & buoy if you are more than 300 yards from any beach or outside of Phillips Park. Your boat’s dive flag is only intended to keep boats 50 yards away from your ingress and egress. Do you really want to earn the nickname Chum? 4)File a float or dive plan before boating or diving and don’t forget to secure your plan when complete. 5)Respect the 300 yard buffer for military vessels, especially the ferry. 6)St Nick’s channel and the GTMO River are always no wake zones. This rule applies to U.S. government vessels as well! 7)Know the game limits. If you get caught keeping every fish that even winks at your line, things will go hard on you. One conch per day during conch season. 8)The MWR skipper test does not supersede the Naval Station GTMO instruction. There are plenty of resources available to learn the bays features and boundaries. 9)Monitor the radio at all times unless Port Control knows your whole crew is diving. “I didn’t hear the radio”, is a tired old excuse. 10)No matter how many dives you make in one day or how deep you go, you’ll never be more deep sea than the guys who’ll be putting you in the recompression chamber, so give it a break and live to dive another day.Story by NDC(DSW) Jose Castilla NAVSTA Harbor Magistrate 6


Representatives from the Navy Uniform Matters Office and Navy Exchange Command (NEXCOM) unveiled a prototype of the Navy’s Physical Training Uniform (PTU) Running Suit, May 30, at the Arlington, Va. Navy Uniform Center. Uniform officials expect a final product to be ready in calendar year 2009. The PTU running suit will have to undergo wear testing before final approval. The prototype running suit was on display next to thousands of new PTU shirts and shorts which are now becoming available for Sailors to purchase by region. Navywide distribution of the PTU started in April The first of a three phase distribution, Wave 1 commenced May 30 at NEX uniform in the Tidewater, Southwest, and Naval District Washington regions. Recruit-Navy Uniform Update ers are included in this wave, but must use the call center by calling: 1-800-368-4088; Italy: 8008-872441; Spain: 900-99-1479; Japan: 00531-1-14026; or anywhere: 757-502-7450. Wave 2 commences in June 2008 and includes Hawaii, Europe, Japan, Guam, Regions Northwest and Southeast. Navy officials also plan on introducing the new E1-6 Service Uniform this summer to be followed by the Navy Working Uniform during the winter of 2008. Each uniform program rollout is scheduled for 24 months. The sequence and timeline for respective rollouts will be announced via separate correspondence. An updated uniform regulation manual will be issued following the release of respective NAVADMINs. Photo by MC2 Kim Williams Story by MC2(SW) Elizabeth Vlahos NMC PAO Wear testing for the proposed Service Dress Khaki uniform has commenced in six major Navy communities as per NAVADMIN 070/06. The wear test encompasses commands in Washington, D.C.; Norfolk; Millington, Tenn.; Newport, R.I.; Yokosuka, Japan; and Pearl Harbor. Then-Chief of Naval Operations, (CNO), Adm. Mike Mullen, authorized the wear testing of the new uniforms for chiefs and officers in March 2006, shortly before turning over his position to current CNO, Adm. Gary Roughead. The style of the Service Dress Khaki is reminiscent of the uniform worn during World War II and Vietnam eras, according to Robert Carroll, Head of Navy’s Uniform Matters Office. One of the key points stressed was the versatility of the proposed uniform. ”With the service dress khaki, the wearer could easily go from service to dress just by donning a jacket,” said Carroll. “Right now, we’re evaluating fabric, appearance, durability, comfort, fit and maintenance requirements. We’re also out to gauge the desire of the fleet to wear the uniform." Carroll is optimistic that the proposed uniform could lighten the load of chiefs and officers’ seabags. ”Right now, chiefs and officers have to bring two sets of dress uniforms on board ship to accommodate the potential and likely seasonal shifts associated with deployments,” he explained. “With the Service Dress Khaki, they would only need one dress uniform.” The wear test is tentatively scheduled to end in August. Participants are required to compete a on-line survey and attend focus groups to express their experience, satisfaction with components and most importantly should the Navy adopt the uniform as a requirement. A decision will be pending after the survey and a Business Case Analysis is completed and briefed.A Sailor shows off the prototype uniform for service dress khaki, a throwback to the traditional WWII style uniform.
