Friday, June 20, 2008 Vol. 65 No. 25 There will be no Gazette published on June 27, 2008 110th Philippine Independence Day Celebration Story by MC1 Bob Lamb NAVSTA PAO Lucille DeLa Cruz choreographed and danced the La Jota Quirino, one of the final dance numbers of the PIDC celebration.Dark grey clouds and the rumbling of thunder on the horizon couldn’t damper the color, laughter and the excitement of the 110th Philippine Independence Day Celebration (PIDC). On Saturday, June 14, the area around the Downtown Lyceum was a fiesta for the senses as the Burns and Roe Leader’s League hosted this cultural presentation. Guantanamo (GTMO) residents lined up at 6 p.m. to a feast of authentic Filipino dishes. "This was my second opportunity to see the PDIC. It is a beautiful presentation that truly shows the hard work and dedication that our Filipino and Filipina brothers and sisters put forth in everything they do. It is a program that I will always remember and look forward to seeing again and again. "The Filipino community always seems to manage to put on one of the biggest and brightest annual events in GTMO," said Les Bunch. “It was wonderful opportunities to see the people I work with everyday celebrate their own culture”, said Russ Wampler, LB&B Associates Inc. “I have never been to the Philippines, so it was nice to see, the clothes, try the food and talk with fellow GTMO residents dressed in traditional Filipino wear.” Soon after Remy Lloyd sang the Philippine National Anthem, Philippine Cultural Dancers expressed their joy and enthusiasm by performing numerous dance routines that meant a lot to the Philippine community that totals more than 1200 residents. They performed dances like the Philippine folk dance known as the "Idaw". It’s a hunting ritual dance performed before tribal wars that will hopefully lead a tribe to victory. Burns and Roe employees, W.T. Sampson school students and volunteers, dresses in authentic costumes, danced the night away, until a special song was played, ‘Long Live the Philippines’. "It reminds us of our colorful heritage and customary way of life," Raul B. Reyes said Every district in the islands has its own folk dance, interpreted attractively in festivals and local shows, which have added to the country’s reputed contribution to world’s illustration of traditional arts", Raul B. Reyes said. Soon after the special dance performances were through, introductions of the Kabayan Night Champion, Luz Soriano and the crowning of Miss Philippine Independence Day Committee 2008, Ms. Esperanza Muse took first place. Diego Carpeso, Master of Ceremonies described Esperanza this way. "Espie, as her friends call her, hails from the city of Muntinlupa, known as a residential haven in Metro Manila. She’s 26 years old and stands 5 feet tall. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and currently works as an Admin. Assistant for BREMCOR. She’s into graphics designing and likes playing computer games for leisure. She considers finishing college on her own as her greatest achievement due to the struggles she has experienced by being a working student. Her goal is to help her family in uplifting their qualitySee Celebration, page 2 Photo by MC1 Robert Lamb

Friday, June 20, 20083See Cemetery, page 5Cuzco beach. Caracoles Point Burial Site was a quarantine burial plot for four people who died of Small Pox. The burials took place in December 1913 and February 1914. These remains were transferred to the Naval CemThe Naval Hospital Cuzco Well Cemetery was established in 1940. The exact date is unknown, as no records exists as to when the site was formally established as a cemetery. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) history speaks about the site where the cemetery is located as the bivouac area of Spanish Troops during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Prior to 1940, there were seven cemeteries or burial plots at various locations in GTMO. Fisherman’s Point Cemetery, also known as the Old Spanish Cemetery and lighthouse Dock Cemetery, were around before the American occupation of the station. There are no records available concerning the Spaniards and Cubans buried in that cemetery. In March 1909, the remains of five servicemen interred there were transferred to the North Toro Cay Cemetery. Leeward Point Site contains one grave that of a rancher named James McKinley, formerly of Torres, Scotland. Prior to his death, he chose this site for his burial. Upon his death in 1901, his wishes were carried out. His grave remains undisturbed to this day. Windward Point Burial Plot is located near the old lighthouse. Three people were buried at this site between 1938 and 1940. Two of the graves were unmarked and no effort was made to transfer these remains to the Cuzco beach location. Near Phillips Park Lighthouse is also the resting place of John Simmons. Mr. Simons is a Jamaican whose dying wish was to be buried in a standing position facing Jamaica and in a place where his vision could stand unimpeded. At the present time, Mr. Simmons ‘body still stands in infinite repose beyond the Phillips Park Lighthouse where a chained tomb supports him. Native Cemetery, also known as the Water Hole Cemetery, is located near the town of Boqueron. Recorded burials at this cemetery were made during the same time period as the North Toro Cay Cemetery. No records exist to indicate when the cemetery was established. The Naval Station was involved with about 10 burials of Cuban civilians at this site. The last coordinated interment in this cemetery was December of 1920, of a Jamaican resident who drowned. North Toro Cay cemetery, was established on April 3, 1906, and was located near the town of Boqueron. This was the primary base cemetery until it was disestablished in November 1944, and the remains transferred to the cemetery at Cuzco Well Cemetery:The final resting place Dylan D'Andrea gently places an American Flag to the right of a headstone. Boy Scouts Troop 435 and Cub Scouts Pack 3401 assisted the Hospital Staff by putting National flags at each headstone at The Naval Hospital Cuzco Well Cemetery on Saturday May 24, 2008 in preparation for the Memorial Service that was held on Monday May 26, 2008.

The ceremony commemorated the sacrifice of the men and women of the Hospital Corps who have served sick or injured service members around the world for 110 years. Master of ceremony, HM1(SW) Blake Cooper talked about the history and the sacrifices brave men and women who make up the only enlisted corps in the Navy have endured. “The Hospital Corps looks upon its distinguished heritage of selfless giving and sacrifice with utmost pride and steadfastly honors the pledge to continue to meet those high standards. In recent events, Hospital Corpsmen have proven they are invaluable on the battlefield and are a vital asset to the Navy/Marine Corps team," said Cooper. The thirty minute ceremony concluded with individual corpsman telling the crowd, in their own words, how it felt to be a Navy Corpsman, and then a moment of silence, a moment of silence for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. This has been the case ever since the earliest days of the United States. According to the Naval Historical Center surgeons used to be assisted by a Surgeon’s Mate, medical men, who were originally considered to be noncombatant civil officers. In 1839, the Navy established the Surgeon’s Steward Rating, which in turn became Apothecary in 1866. Navy regulations of 1870 refer to the rating as Bayman (possibly sick-bay-man), and in 1898 it became Hospital Steward. On June 17, 1898, President William McKinley established the Hospital Corps as a recognized member of the Medical Department. The next revision in the structure of the Hospital Corps came in 1916 which set the foundation for the current system of rank structure used today. By adding an improved rank structure the Hospital Corps could allow for a Naval Hospital honors those who care Story by MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA PAO

Another grave marked by a cross and bearing the word “UNKNOWN” was excavated, but no remains were found and there was no evidence of a grave having been dug there. McCalla Hill Cemetery was established in November 1917 with the burial of a Marine Corporal who died on November 17. This cemetery was used concurrently with North Toro Cay cemetery and the native Cemetery. It was disestablished in 1940 when all of the twentysix remains interred at McCalla Hill Cemetery were transferred to the new Cuzco Beach Cemetery. In 1944, the base commander decided all known grave sites located on the base were to be consolidated into one cemetery, with the exception of four buried at Windward Point and Leeward Point sites. Forty-one remains were disinterred from North Toro Cay and four from Caracoles Point and transferred to the Cuzco Beach Cemetery. The first recorded burial at the Cuzco Beach Cemetery is that of Kumaji Makamoto, wardroom cook of the USS Indiana, which was operating around Guantanamo Bay. Currently there are three hundred and thirty-five people buried at the Cuzco Beach Cemetery. The status of the descendants vary: active duty military, dependents of active duty, merchant mariners from the United States and other nations, Cuban residents and refugees, Jamaican and other foreign national employees, and Haitian refugees. As per BUMEDINST 5360.1, paragraph 13-2, individuals eligible for interment at a National Cemetery are not eligible for interment at a Naval Plot Cemetery. Utilizing guidelines set forth in BUMEDINST 5360.1, paragraph 2-3b (4), (5), and (6), the following individuals may be buried in a Naval Plot or Cemetery. Indigent patients that were hospitalized in a naval medical facility provided disposition of remains cannot otherwise be made.

Friday, June 20, 20089Life-styles Summer Do not take a vacation from safety Nearly half (40 percent) of all unintentional injury-related deaths occur from May to August. The greatest summertime risks include drowning, bike crashes, falls, pedestrian incidents and motor vehicle crashes. July is the deadliest time for childhood unintentional injury; 12 percent of unintentional injury-related deaths occur during this month alone. Older children experience the greatest increase in unintentional injury-related death during the summer months. This is primarily because children ages 10 to 14 tend to engage in more risky behavior and are presumably given more freedom by their parents. Young school-age children ages 5 to 9 are also at high risk because they lack the judgment necessary to bike, walk, swim and play safely without adult supervision. Many parents of children this age also fail to restrain them properly in booster seats in motor vehicles, which can lead to severe injuries or even death in the event of a car crash. Summer injury peaks are less pronounced in mild-weather regions of the country. Temperate climates enable children to spend more time outdoors; therefore, injuries in these regions tend to be distributed more evenly throughout the year. Drowning Drowning claims nearly 8,000 lives annually. It is the fourth leading cause of accidental death in the United States. For children, it is the second lead-Story by LifeLines Summer Safetying cause of accidental death for schoolage children and the number one cause for preschoolers. Bike Statistics from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reveal that most bicycle deaths occur during the summer months, and almost half the deaths occur between 3-9 pm. According to the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute, a bicycle helmet reduces the risk of serious head and brain injury by 85%. Falls From 1996 to 2006, 1602 children died from a fall. Of these children, almost half died during the summer. Always wear sunscreen when playing outdoors, regardless of age. Summer injury peaks are less pronounced in mild-weather regions of a country. Temperate climates enable children and adults to spend more time outdoors; therefore, injuries in these regions tend to be distributed more evenly throughout the year.Pedestrian From 1996 to 2006, 12,036 children ages 14 and under died as a result of an unintentional pedestrianrelated injury. Of these deaths, more than 40 percent occurred during the summer. Car From 1996 to 2006, 16,526 children died from a motor vehicle crash. Of these deaths, more than 40 percent occurred during the summer. These numbers are an estimate from the National Safety Council.Naval Hospital, from page 4 massive expansion of personnel. The Hospital Corps is the most decorated rate in the United States Navy. Hospital Corpsmen have served courageously on ships and valiantly on the battlefields of every conflict, caring for injured Sailors and Marines. There have been 22 Congressional Medal of Honor award recipients from the Hospital Corps, which is just about half of all Medal of Honor’s awarded to the Department of the Navy. According to Navy officials, over 2,500 Navy Corpsmen are currently serving their country in Iraq and in Afghanistan. HM1(SW) Blake Cooper was the Master of Ceremony on June 17.

Baby Mama is a 2008 comedy film from Universal Pictures written and directed by Michael McCullers and starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Greg Kinnear, Romany Malco and Dax Shepard. Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey), a successful single businesswoman from Philadelphia, has put her career before her personal life. At the age of 37, she has finally decided to have a child on her own, but her plans change when she discovers she has only the slimmest chance of becoming pregnant. Also denied adoption, Kate gets a South Jersey working girl, Angie Ostrowski (Amy Poehler), to become a surrogate mom. When Angie becomes pregnant, Kate begins preparing for motherhood in her own typically driven fashion—until her surrogate shows up at her door with no place to live. Their conflicting personalities put them at odds as Kate learns first-hand about balancing motherhood and career by catering to Angie’s childish needs. As if this weren’t enough Kate also begins dating the local owner of a blended juice cafe, Rob (Greg Kinnear).
