NAVSTA Public AffairsBe good at something. It makes you valuable. Have something to bring to the table, because that will make you more welcome. -Randy PauschCivilian attire regulations: Are you in compliance?By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Leona Mynes the Naval Stations Civilian Attire Policy, service members must follow the policy in order to main tain good order and discipline. The biggest dress code violation I see is per sonnel wearing garments designed as underwear like white tee shirts or the white tank top A shirts referred to as wife beaters, said Naval Sta tion Command Master Chief J.D. McKinney III. Those were all clearly designed for wear under neath clothing and not designed as outerwear. McKinney said all service members are re sponsible for enforcing the Civilian Attire Policy, which applies to any service member stationed at or deployed to Guantanamo Bay. We should show pride in ourselves and our units, said McKinney. With that said, everyone must ensure their civilian clothing is appropriate for the situation and doesnt bring discredit upon the service. For more information, view NAVSTAGT call the Naval Station administrative department Prohibited Civilian Attire Clothing that exposes the private areas of the body to public view Any garment, to include hats or caps, with slogans, words or symbols found to be sexually explicit, profane or offensive to any foreign, ethnic, religious or racial group. Bare feet. Excessively ripped, torn or frayed pants or trousers. Athletic wear, other than for swimming and sunbathing. Bathing suit tops as outwear.

It was like they had no control over anything in their life. It seems to me that we all have control over what happens in our lives, we just need to claim it. What if you were completely okay with who you are? What if you took ownership of what happens around you? What if you took possession of your life fully, took owner ship for your Bible time, your prayer time, your family around you. What if you were to stand your post and say I am here, not because the Military has me here, but because I chose this path and I am going to claim it for my own? I know who I am, and I am proud to do this service at whatever the cost.MIGRANTS the Haitian sailing vessel carrying 105 migrants north of Cuba May 8.

Happenings With all of the love story movies being pumped out of Hollywood nowadays, it is a for the men of this world. Kirk Kettner is your typical, average, American male. From his medio cre job with the TSA to his familys adoration of his ex-girlfriend, he falls solidly on the Hotness Scale as a 5. Through luck, he meets and eventually dates a Hard 10 by the name of Molly. Kirks closest friends convince him that he has no chance with her and that his relationship attempts will eventu ally fail, and miserably at that. All this because, at best, you can only gap two points on the scale. As Kirk is your typical male, he woefully listens to his friends persistent nag ging and eventually drives Molly away, thinking shes too good for me. One of the things I enjoyed most about this movie was its realism. All of you play the rating game. tions, reactions and developments were very true to form: genuine. Even the mixture of slapstick and witty comedy did no less then pull the audi tive, this romantic comedy is easily deserving of a strong 4.5, however, for a gender non-biased every minute of it.Movie Review: Shes Out of my LeagueBy Robert Sanders Dynamic Strength TrainingMondays & Wednesdays Marine Hill Fitness Center at 9 a.m. Build strength and endurance Improve your balance and posture
