S. Army logistics support vessel General Frank S. Besson, Jr. (LSV 1) pulled in to Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (NAVSTA GTMO), Mar. 8. and loaded 21 CONEX boxes of food and humanitarian relief supplies to support Operation Unified Response in Haiti. The Armys 10th Transportation Bn. is supporting the request to transport hunanitarian aid for relief orginizations This is the first time the Besson has made a port visit to NAVSTA GTMO to load supplies and transport them to Haiti. The trip from GTMO to Haiti will take approximately 18 hours. Sailors attached to Navy Cargo Handling Bn. 13 (NCHB 13) and Soldiers assigned to the 335th Transportation Detachment used a Kalmar Rough Terrain Container Handler to load the CONEX boxes containing rice, food rations and water purification equipment within 24 hours during its brief stop Mar. 8. The Kalmar is a specialized cargo handling tractor designed to move CONEX boxes over rough terrain. The Besson is a vital asset to Combined Task Force 48 (CTF 48). CTF 48 is responsible for coordinating all logistics for the delivery of disaster relief supplies, vehicles and equipment to Haiti. The Besson crew conducts amphibious operations around the clock to get supplies to the Haitian people in this time of emergency. Our command tracked the cargo coming in from Naval Air Station Jacksonville and informed Joint Task Force Haiti of the need for onward movement, providing the necessary coordination of efforts. said Yeoman Senior Chief JoAnn Barnes, command senior enlisted advisor for CTF-48. The Besson is the largest powered Logistics Support Vessel (LSV) watercraft in the United States Armys inventory. The Besson is designed to give the Army the capability to deliver its vehicles and cargo anywhere in the world. Named in honor of Frank S. Besson, Jr., The Besson class of ship has bow and stern ramps and the ability to beach themselves, which enables them to discharge 900 short tons of vehicles and cargo over the shore "Burns and Roe Leaders League will be hav ing a Kabayan Night (Talent Show) on Satur day, March 13 at the Sunken Garden (behind GHT) at 8pm.

Enter a society that parallels our own, well find the vampire race living normal, everyday livesor should I say, everynight lives. Take the realistic problem of starvation one step further and we discover that the human race (vampires main food supply) is on the verge of extinctionfewer and fewer of us are available to be farmed. In comes Edward Dalton, Chief Hematologist, desperately seeking a solution to the growing food crisis without success Until, in classic Hollywood fashion, the humans come to his aid. In this attempt to save the world, Ed is introduced to a vampire, turned human, and yes, you read correctly. Though this is a hard concept to grasp, I give props to the thought out development, of which I will not detail. Unfortunately, from this point forward, we take a dramatic turn into an abundance of unnecessary twists and turnseffectively massacring the well developed plot. Simultaneously we gratefully accept a depth of character interaction and development not yet seen in this film. For its accurate portrayal of the wealth, corruption and greed of todays society, to the always favored last glimmer of hope, and even reaching beyond into the dark void of the evil within, Daybreakers brings new life to the vampires of old. What the movie lacks in plot continuity, it makes up for in originality, and for this, Im issuing 3 of 5 Iguanas.

Photo By Regina Peck Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs The Navy is establishing five annual four-year college Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) scholarships for U.S. high school and college students who demonstrate advanced cyber security skills. The new cyber-option NROTC scholarships are a key part of a comprehensive Navy strategy to attract, recruit and develop elite cyber professionals needed to operate securely and effectively in cyber space. The Navy will award five cyber-option NROTC scholarships annually to high school seniors or first year college students who individually place in the top 20 percent at the U.S. Cyber Challenge competition. The competition is a national talent search and skills development program that identifies young Americans with the interests and technical skills required to fill the ranks of cyber security practitioners, researchers and professionals who become the innovative leaders in cyber security. The students must meet these requirements for the NROTC program, such as maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or greater on a 4.0 scale, ranking in the top 40 percent of their class, scoring competitively in the ACT and/or SAT and passing a physical exam. Upon commissioning from the NROTC program, the cyberoption scholarship winners will use their skills in cyber warfare leadership positions. NROTC scholarships provide significant benefits, including 100 percent payment of college tuition; full reimbursement for required books, supplies and equipment; a monthly monetary stipend; and active duty pay and benefits for up to 45 days a year. The NROTC program, overseen by Naval Service Training Command at Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill., was established to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, loyalty and Navy core values. NROTC graduates become Naval officers who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the Naval service and have a potential for future development in mind and character so as to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government. As I look out from my office window today, I am looking into the courtyard of the Chapel Annex. The yard is quiet; it has sun beams reaching into it. Two little birds are playing on my windowsill. There seems to be a tranquility there that helps fill the rest of my day. However, some days it just seems to storm. I bet you have had days in your lives that just seem to storm. Nothing goes right, everything you do is wrong, and when you think you are out of the thick of things, you are just pulled right back in. Yet, even in storms there can always be found a place of peace, you just have to find it for yourself. I was taught that when you are in a storm, you need to go take a moment and breathe, then come back to the problem. Sometimes we do not have this ability to leave and come back, so we must find that peace in ourselves. God offers that peace, so we pray may the peace of God rule our hearts. Jesus says in John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.Tranquility"May the Peace God rule in your life today. For GTMO residents looking for assistance, an organization of volunteers are waiting to help. The GTMO Spouse Association coordinates and sponsors events throughout the year to raise money to help the local community. We are a nonprofit organization giving back to the community in which we live, said Rebecca Bayless, president, GTMO Spouse Association. It feels good being able to give money to those who need it. The majority of the money the association raises come from Treasures & Trivia, an onbase thrift store run by members of the GTMO Spouse Association. There are currently 50 members of the club and they each take turns volunteering in the shop as their schedule allows. Donations of all kinds are welcome except for childrens toys because they cannot be certified to be lead free. Every first Saturday of the month, anything that can fit in a plastic grocery bag sells for $5. We welcome all donated items because 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the community, Bayless said. The volunteers are what keep this organization going. Local commands have assisted the spouses association in meeting half of their goals by volunteering time and materials. The Seabees made the donation bin outside of Treasures & Trivia and the racks that hold all of the gently worn clothing. The Coast Guard has even come by to help us paint the building to make it look more appealing, said Bayless. Fundraising events are periodically scheduled to fund scholarships and distribute donations to other nonprofit organizations within the community. Spouses, high school and home schooled students are eligible and encouraged to apply for the academic scholarships. I am proud to say we have given money to each organization that has requested funds, said Bayless. It feels good to be able to grant the requests as a result of our hard work. The spouses association coordinates events like the Mother and Daughter Tea in May, the Lighthouse Social, Community Center and Angel Tree during the Christmas holidays. Bayless said she has made many friends and connections since joining the club. Bayless will be leaving GTMO in May after three and a half years. I have learned a lot about being an active member of the community since joining the spouses association, said Bayless. The GTMO Spouse Association is open to all spouses of military and government civilian employees. Members meet once a month and take a break during the summer months to allow time for family outings and prepare for the fall membership drive.

The Guantanamo Bay Gazette 4 by Chief of Navy InformationANY DAY IN GTMO Photo by MC2 Marie Montez On: Are you prepared for earthquakes?by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Erica R Gardner Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs An earthquake is the sudden, rapid shaking of the earth, caused by the breaking and shifting of subterranean rock. Since it is impossible to predict when an earthquake will occur, it is important that you and your family are prepared ahead of time; earthquakes can happen here. A 4.3 magnitude earthquake occurred Mar. 2. in Santiago de Cuba, which is 30 miles from Guantanamo Bay. Although this earthquake did not cause damage to the base, there have been earthquakes for the same region that have been over the 8.0 magnitude scale. I believe everyone should have a disaster supply kit ready at all times, said Jan Chilson, emergency manager for Naval Station Guantanamo Bay. You never know when a natural disaster will occur and you need to be prepared. It is the responsibility of each Sailor to have a disaster supply kit accessible in the event of a natural disaster. Knowing the types of natural disasters that may occur in the area in which you live can help in your preparation. A basic survival kit should include three days worth of non-perishable foods and water, a battery-powered or handcrank radio, whistles, flashlights and batteries for each person in your household and bedding such as sleeping beds and blankets. Copies of important papers and medical prescriptions should be kept in a secure location for easy retrieval. Keep important papers in a water-tight container is good in the event of floods, said Chilson. This is the kind of information that is needed at a time when it is not available. Planning an emergency route needs to be done together with each family member to ensure everyone is familiar with the locations chosen as a meeting place. It is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what will be done in case of an emergency. Each family should practice earthquake drills like fire drills are practiced, said Chilson. Drop, cover, and hold on are the things to remember when an earthquake strikes. If an earthquake strikes and you are in ours, do not run outside. Chilson warned the ground may open up and not provide a safe environment. If possible, drop to the ground; take cover under a table or sturdy piece of furniture and hold on until the shaking stops. Once the natural disaster is over, it is important to muster with your command so that they can account for you and your family, said Chilson. While waiting for assistance after a disaster, be careful of the surroundings. Chilson recommends that you not light matches to use as a light source in case there are gas leaks, and make sure to cover your mouth with a handkerchief to prevent inhaling dust.Besson, from pg 1in as little as four feet of water, or 2,000 short tons as an intra-theater line haul roll-on/roll-off cargo ship. Eventually, food and clean drinking water will be provided directly to the Haitian population, said Barnes. Successive joint operations better define that ability of the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Force to work together in purple suit symphony. The General Frank S. Besson Jr. is operating as an asset of Combined Task Force 48. The multipurpose transport ship is on station in the Caribbean theater to perform logistics mission to Haiti in support of Operation Unified Response, a joint humanitarian assistance mission to Haiti following a 7.0 magnitude earthquake Jan. 12 The U. S. Army logistics support vessel General Frank S. Besson, Jr. (LSV 1) is guided into the Windward Ferry Landing at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (NAVSTA GTMO) by Sailors attached to Beach Master Unit 2.

The Besson will be delivering the humanitarian relief supplies The NEX has expanded its footprint on Facebook since it first launched its page in October 2008. Military customers who become fans of the NEX have the opportunity to find out about upcoming sales and promotions, store events, ask questions, participate in surveys and to be a part of the exclusive Deal of the Day program. During the holidays, we launched our Deal of the Day program and it was very successful, said Liza Hartman, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) marketing specialist in charge of e-mail and social media. Weve expanded the program to now include exclusive coupons just for our Facebook fans. The response from our customers has been very positive. Currently, the NEX has over 32,000 fans, but it would like to see even more. Since we have such a mobile customers who tend to be far from home, social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, are how they connect, said Hartman. We want all our customers to know the benefits of the NEX. Its a benefit theyve earned by serving their country. NEXCOMs use of social media sites also helps with its goals to be good stewards of the environment. By increasing the amount of marketing it produces online, it will further reduce the need for the paper and postage it uses to print its sales flyers each week.

The Guantanamo Bay Gazette 4 by Chief of Navy InformationANY DAY IN GTMO Photo by MC2 Marie Montez On: Are you prepared for earthquakes?by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Erica R Gardner Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs An earthquake is the sudden, rapid shaking of the earth, caused by the breaking and shifting of subterranean rock. Since it is impossible to predict when an earthquake will occur, it is important that you and your family are prepared ahead of time; earthquakes can happen here. A 4.3 magnitude earthquake occurred Mar. 2. in Santiago de Cuba, which is 30 miles from Guantanamo Bay. Although this earthquake did not cause damage to the base, there have been earthquakes for the same region that have been over the 8.0 magnitude scale. I believe everyone should have a disaster supply kit ready at all times, said Jan Chilson, emergency manager for Naval Station Guantanamo Bay. You never know when a natural disaster will occur and you need to be prepared. It is the responsibility of each Sailor to have a disaster supply kit accessible in the event of a natural disaster. Knowing the types of natural disasters that may occur in the area in which you live can help in your preparation. A basic survival kit should include three days worth of non-perishable foods and water, a battery-powered or handcrank radio, whistles, flashlights and batteries for each person in your household and bedding such as sleeping beds and blankets. Copies of important papers and medical prescriptions should be kept in a secure location for easy retrieval. Keep important papers in a water-tight container is good in the event of floods, said Chilson. This is the kind of information that is needed at a time when it is not available. Planning an emergency route needs to be done together with each family member to ensure everyone is familiar with the locations chosen as a meeting place. It is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what will be done in case of an emergency. Each family should practice earthquake drills like fire drills are practiced, said Chilson. Drop, cover, and hold on are the things to remember when an earthquake strikes. If an earthquake strikes and you are in ours, do not run outside. Chilson warned the ground may open up and not provide a safe environment. If possible, drop to the ground; take cover under a table or sturdy piece of furniture and hold on until the shaking stops. Once the natural disaster is over, it is important to muster with your command so that they can account for you and your family, said Chilson. While waiting for assistance after a disaster, be careful of the surroundings. Chilson recommends that you not light matches to use as a light source in case there are gas leaks, and make sure to cover your mouth with a handkerchief to prevent inhaling dust.Besson, from pg 1in as little as four feet of water, or 2,000 short tons as an intra-theater line haul roll-on/roll-off cargo ship. Eventually, food and clean drinking water will be provided directly to the Haitian population, said Barnes. Successive joint operations better define that ability of the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Force to work together in purple suit symphony. The General Frank S. Besson Jr. is operating as an asset of Combined Task Force 48.

Military customers who become fans of the NEX have the opportunity to find out about upcoming sales and promotions, store events, ask questions, participate in surveys and to be a part of the exclusive Deal of the Day program. During the holidays, we launched our Deal of the Day program and it was very successful, said Liza Hartman, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) marketing specialist in charge of e-mail and social media. Weve expanded the program to now include exclusive coupons just for our Facebook fans. The response from our customers has been very positive. Currently, the NEX has over 32,000 fans, but it would like to see even more. Since we have such a mobile customers who tend to be far from home, social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, are how they connect, said Hartman. We want all our customers to know the benefits of the NEX. Its a benefit theyve earned by serving their country. NEXCOMs use of social media sites also helps with its goals to be good stewards of the environment. By increasing the amount of marketing it produces online, it will further reduce the need for the paper and postage it uses to print its sales flyers each week.

Photo By Regina Peck Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs The Navy is establishing five annual four-year college Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) scholarships for U.S. high school and college students who demonstrate advanced cyber security skills. The new cyber-option NROTC scholarships are a key part of a comprehensive Navy strategy to attract, recruit and develop elite cyber professionals needed to operate securely and effectively in cyber space. The Navy will award five cyber-option NROTC scholarships annually to high school seniors or first year college students who individually place in the top 20 percent at the U.S. Cyber Challenge competition. The competition is a national talent search and skills development program that identifies young Americans with the interests and technical skills required to fill the ranks of cyber security practitioners, researchers and professionals who become the innovative leaders in cyber security. The students must meet these requirements for the NROTC program, such as maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or greater on a 4.0 scale, ranking in the top 40 percent of their class, scoring competitively in the ACT and/or SAT and passing a physical exam. Upon commissioning from the NROTC program, the cyberoption scholarship winners will use their skills in cyber warfare leadership positions. NROTC scholarships provide significant benefits, including 100 percent payment of college tuition; full reimbursement for required books, supplies and equipment; a monthly monetary stipend; and active duty pay and benefits for up to 45 days a year. The NROTC program, overseen by Naval Service Training Command at Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill., was established to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, loyalty and Navy core values. NROTC graduates become Naval officers who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the Naval service and have a potential for future development in mind and character so as to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government. As I look out from my office window today, I am looking into the courtyard of the Chapel Annex. The yard is quiet; it has sun beams reaching into it. Two little birds are playing on my windowsill. There seems to be a tranquility there that helps fill the rest of my day. However, some days it just seems to storm. I bet you have had days in your lives that just seem to storm. Nothing goes right, everything you do is wrong, and when you think you are out of the thick of things, you are just pulled right back in. Yet, even in storms there can always be found a place of peace, you just have to find it for yourself. I was taught that when you are in a storm, you need to go take a moment and breathe, then come back to the problem. Sometimes we do not have this ability to leave and come back, so we must find that peace in ourselves. God offers that peace, so we pray may the peace of God rule our hearts. Jesus says in John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.Tranquility"May the Peace God rule in your life today. For GTMO residents looking for assistance, an organization of volunteers are waiting to help. The GTMO Spouse Association coordinates and sponsors events throughout the year to raise money to help the local community. We are a nonprofit organization giving back to the community in which we live, said Rebecca Bayless, president, GTMO Spouse Association. It feels good being able to give money to those who need it. The majority of the money the association raises come from Treasures & Trivia, an onbase thrift store run by members of the GTMO Spouse Association. There are currently 50 members of the club and they each take turns volunteering in the shop as their schedule allows. Donations of all kinds are welcome except for childrens toys because they cannot be certified to be lead free. Every first Saturday of the month, anything that can fit in a plastic grocery bag sells for $5. We welcome all donated items because 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the community, Bayless said. The volunteers are what keep this organization going. Local commands have assisted the spouses association in meeting half of their goals by volunteering time and materials. The Seabees made the donation bin outside of Treasures & Trivia and the racks that hold all of the gently worn clothing. The Coast Guard has even come by to help us paint the building to make it look more appealing, said Bayless. Fundraising events are periodically scheduled to fund scholarships and distribute donations to other nonprofit organizations within the community. Spouses, high school and home schooled students are eligible and encouraged to apply for the academic scholarships. I am proud to say we have given money to each organization that has requested funds, said Bayless. It feels good to be able to grant the requests as a result of our hard work. The spouses association coordinates events like the Mother and Daughter Tea in May, the Lighthouse Social, Community Center and Angel Tree during the Christmas holidays. Bayless said she has made many friends and connections since joining the club. Bayless will be leaving GTMO in May after three and a half years. I have learned a lot about being an active member of the community since joining the spouses association, said Bayless. The GTMO Spouse Association is open to all spouses of military and government civilian employees. Members meet once a month and take a break during the summer months to allow time for family outings and prepare for the fall membership drive.

The Armys 10th Transportation Bn. is supporting the request to transport hunanitarian aid for relief orginizations This is the first time the Besson has made a port visit to NAVSTA GTMO to load supplies and transport them to Haiti. The trip from GTMO to Haiti will take approximately 18 hours. Sailors attached to Navy Cargo Handling Bn. 13 (NCHB 13) and Soldiers assigned to the 335th Transportation Detachment used a Kalmar Rough Terrain Container Handler to load the CONEX boxes containing rice, food rations and water purification equipment within 24 hours during its brief stop Mar. 8. The Kalmar is a specialized cargo handling tractor designed to move CONEX boxes over rough terrain. The Besson is a vital asset to Combined Task Force 48 (CTF 48). CTF 48 is responsible for coordinating all logistics for the delivery of disaster relief supplies, vehicles and equipment to Haiti. The Besson crew conducts amphibious operations around the clock to get supplies to the Haitian people in this time of emergency. Our command tracked the cargo coming in from Naval Air Station Jacksonville and informed Joint Task Force Haiti of the need for onward movement, providing the necessary coordination of efforts. said Yeoman Senior Chief JoAnn Barnes, command senior enlisted advisor for CTF-48. The Besson is the largest powered Logistics Support Vessel (LSV) watercraft in the United States Armys inventory. The Besson is designed to give the Army the capability to deliver its vehicles and cargo anywhere in the world. Named in honor of Frank S.

Enter a society that parallels our own, well find the vampire race living normal, everyday livesor should I say, everynight lives. Take the realistic problem of starvation one step further and we discover that the human race (vampires main food supply) is on the verge of extinctionfewer and fewer of us are available to be farmed. In comes Edward Dalton, Chief Hematologist, desperately seeking a solution to the growing food crisis without success Until, in classic Hollywood fashion, the humans come to his aid. In this attempt to save the world, Ed is introduced to a vampire, turned human, and yes, you read correctly. Though this is a hard concept to grasp, I give props to the thought out development, of which I will not detail. Unfortunately, from this point forward, we take a dramatic turn into an abundance of unnecessary twists and turnseffectively massacring the well developed plot. Simultaneously we gratefully accept a depth of character interaction and development not yet seen in this film. For its accurate portrayal of the wealth, corruption and greed of todays society, to the always favored last glimmer of hope, and even reaching beyond into the dark void of the evil within, Daybreakers brings new life to the vampires of old. What the movie lacks in plot continuity, it makes up for in originality, and for this, Im issuing 3 of 5 Iguanas.
