Sailors and Marines stationed at Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay make the nal push for donations for the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS). e NMCRS is a nonprot organization aimed at helping Sailors, Marines and dependants in times of need and emergencies. According to Navy Chief Diver Rich Bolen NS Guantanamo Bay NMCRS Representative the Naval Station team has been working hard over the last two months and has given up several hours of liberty to support the eort. Assistant NMCRS coordinator Boatswains Mate 1st Class Bob Didier has been the driving force behind the operation and has coordinated most of the events that have taken place, said Bolen. Without his support and the rest of the team we would never reach our goal of $17,000. e team scheduled events that were a hit to base residents to include a Jail and Bail in which individuals could contribute money to lock someone up at the Navy Exchange atrium and a Radiothon that allowed people to call in and request a song for a small donation, or pledge more money to bump a song o the air. Mass Communication Specialist Second Class Oliver Cole of Armed Forces Network Guantanamo Bay who helped DJ the Radiothon thought it was a creative way to get the entire community involved. It was a very entertaining and creative way to raise money for such a good cause, said Cole. Being a DJ for the fundraiser was a blast! My favorite part was bumping songs. ere were some pretty big bump wars going on and Im not sure who came out on top. All Im sure of is that I know every word to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Muskrat Love. According to Master-At-Arms 1st Class Zachery Clause the Jail and Bail was a huge success and thought that upper leadership in the command showed great esprit de corps when he arrested the base Commanding Ocer and Executive Ocer. I think the overall attitude of everyone that was arrested was excellent, after we explained that they werent really going to jail and it was a fundraiser for a great cause, said Clause. Most people paid the extra money to ip it on the person that put the bounty on them. Didier would like to thank all Guantanamo Bay for their eorts and contributions given to help the NMCRS. e Radiothon and the Jail and Bail have been a huge success. All of Guantanamo Bay has come together to make this thing work. e success of it all depended on the volunteers who have helped out a great deal, said Didier. People are giving what they can and having a great time also. So far we have made a total of over $20,000. We are almost at the goal we set out to meet and we still have time left. We are going to keep the press on and be rock stars. GTMO Holds Radiothon and Jail and Bail for NMCRS MCC(SW/AW) Keith Bryska / Gazette Editor Master-At-Arms 1st Class Zachery Clause arrests Cmdr.

In this weeks article, I would like to share a Cherokee Tale that I was introduced to while serving as a hospital chaplain about the Two Wolves. The author of the tale is unknown but the moral of the story is powerful. One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, envy, greed, lies, false pride and ego. The other is good. It is joy peace, love, hope, serenity, kindness, compassion and faith. The grandson thought about it and then asked, Which wolf wins? The old Cherokee simply replied, The one you feed. Upon reflection on this story I would like for you to ask yourself, which wolf seems to be winning right now in your life? If it is good, continue to feed yourself with those things that have added to the positive upkeep in your life. There are many ways to feed the good, for example, positive literature, your close relationships, or your faith. If the evil wolf seems to be stronger at the moment, however, it is never too late to make a change and to feed it less and less until you see the expected positive results. Remember, you make the choice on which one wins. C haplains Corner Two Wolves Lt.

SPORTS BYLINE Visits Guantanamo Bay
A team of sports celebrities to include national sports broadcaster Ron Barr of Sports Byline USA, Super Bowl XXXV winning coach Brian Billick and retired NBA veteran player Adonal Foyle visited Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba April 29 May 2. e trip was schedule by Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) in partnership with Armed Forces Entertainment the ocial Department of Defense agency for providing entertainment to U.S. military personnel overseas. While on the installation they spent time with the Sailors and Troops and toured dierent commands on the base. ey also watched a military working dogs demonstration, ate at the base galley and participated in the base radio show Openline hosted by Commanding Ocer, Capt. J.R. Nettleton and Command Master Chief Ross Cramer. After spending time with the personnel stationed here it is amazing to me to meet these bright eyed, mission driven young people and its humbling for one, and it makes you feel good as an American, said Billick. I realize its a volatile time and there a lot of things going on in the world, but when you meet these young people and you see what Americas future is all about and its phenomenal. Adonal talked about how he enjoyed spending time talking to the Sailors and Troops here while making an occasional joke about him being bigger than the plane he came down on. He also shared a laugh when Nettleton challenge him to a basketball game. What these people do here and what they give up is extraordinary, said Adonal. We can tip our hats, because they are the real heroes that work day in and night out to protect us and I am very humbled to be here. MCC(SW/AW) Keith Bryska Gazette Editor Sports Byline USA is a national, three-hour, nightly sports talk show and was the rst national sports talk show and network, and has become Americas largest multi-media, sports talk network. Now 24-hours a day, seven days a week, Sports Byline USA is heard on 200 U.S. radio stations, with 2.2 million American listeners and 500 American Forces Radio Network stations in 177 countries. Coach Billick talked about his leadership styles to Nettleton and how they helped him become a successful head coach. He claimed you can talk to your players about motivation all you want, but as soon as the ball is kicked o and a player gets knocked on his butt that motivation ends. I always felt that when I was with my team my primary job on Wednesdays when we rst came together was to focus on the mission and what part of that mission we needed to focus on and how we are going to accomplish it throughout the week, said Billick. en on Saturday nights before the game you bring it back in to focus during your pregame, if I did that than I knew I motivated them to get the job done. Coach Billick also believes that leadership in sports is not that dierent than leadership styles in the military and how it ties into believing in your chain of command. ey have got to respect the chain of command in the heat of battle when you tell them what to do, but leading up to that point the interaction that you have with them is important, said Billick. I always believe if youre going to lead than its not about what you say, but why you say it. ey are not going to follow you because of what you said; its because of why you said it. ey dont care that you know, until they know that you care. is is the rst time the team has been on a Navy Base and while at Guantanamo Bay they conducted two live shows while taking questions from members of the audience about their favorite sports team.
As we quickly approach the summer months Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay residents need to take extra precautions to deal with the heat and humidity of the Caribbean region. Two issues that arise in the summer time are mold and mildew. In the last several years these two pests have caught our attention in the newspapers, on television and in magazines. Its been around for thousands of years so whats the deal? Molds and mildew are found everywhere in our environment. Molds and mildews are microscopic organisms. They are not animal or plant but are part of the fungi kingdom, like mushrooms and yeast. Like all fungi, they produce enzymes that allow them to decompose and digest organic matter. They also produce spores that allow them to easily spread and reproduce. There are more than 100,000 species of these microorganisms and they are found everywhere in the world. They thrive in warm, moist and humid environments and surfaces and often seek out organic materials like wood and food. Mold and mildew are basically fungus cousins. Mold usually manifests itself as a black, brown or green film or fuzz that attacks and thrives on rotting food or any organic material. It can also survive on non-living materials such as tile, plastic, insulation and sheetrock. Mildew, on the other hand, usually has a powdery consistency and forms in a flat pattern. It tends to target a variety of moist, organic surfaces and products made out of animals and plants including leather, paper, books, clothing, ceilings, walls, floors and furniture. Microscopic mold and mildew spores can easily travel through the air and settle in your home. They need moisture to begin growing and organic material to eat, so they will begin gravitating to any surface where excess moisture or water builds up in your home. This moisture can arise from a leaky roof, flooding, bad drainage, poor ventilation, high humidity, flooding, faulty plumbing, problems with your heating and air conditioning systemany source of moisture makes ideal conditions for mold and mildew. Realistically, there is no way to prevent or rid ALL mold and mildew from your home or other facilities but there are some things NS Guantanamo Bay residents can do to control the growth. In order to control the growth they must control moisture. Fix Any and All Moisture Problems in Your Home Look for and stop all water leaks. Ask housing to repair leaky roofs and plumbing fixtures. Repair or replace old heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems. Increase Air Circulation within Your Home. Ventilate your home with fresh dry air from outside. Provide warm air to all areas of the home, especially along the inside of exterior walls. Open windows regularly and use fans. Move large objects a few inches away from exterior walls to provide good air circulation. Use exhaust fans in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Use ceiling fans and old-fashioned propeller fans regularly throughout your house. Seal Air Leaks. Sealing windows, doors and walls with caulk, stripping and other sealants can prevent moist outdoor air and mold and mildew spores from entering your home. Dont Let Wet Items Linger. Clean and dry water-damaged carpets, clothing, bedding and upholstered furniture within 24 48 hours or consider removing and replacing damaged furnishings. Mop and dry all spills and leaks on any floor or surface. Run Your Air Conditioner Regularly. Regular use of air conditioning keeps your home cool and dry in the summer months, the peak season for mold and mildew growth. Vacuum and Clean Your Home Regularly. Dusting, sweeping and a little elbow grease will remove or kill much surface mold and mildew before they get a chance to settle and spread. Hit the Bleach. Floors, counters, window sills, appliances and kitchens and bathroom fixtures should be cleaned regularly with not just soap or detergent but an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. One containing ammonia bleach is your best bet for overall effectiveness. But be careful bleach can damage surfaces, clothing and skin, especially if you use it straight and dont dilute. Be sure to wear gloves and protect yourself. We are all exposed to many kinds of mold both inside and outside the house and in other locations in and around base. Of the thousands of molds that exist, some are known allergens (aggravating or causing skin, eye, and respiratory problems), and a few molds produce harmful mycotoxins that can cause serious problems. The potential for health problems occurs when people inhale large quantities of the airborne mold spores. Preventing and Controlling Mildew and Mold NS Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs
