4http://www.jtfgtmo.southcom.mil/xwebsite/index.html I am honored to have the opportunity to author the Independence Day Command Corner. It is my favorite holiday, and without the freedoms that were won through sacrifice and per severance, it is unlikely that we would be able to celebrate the other holidays that we hold dear. My earliest memory of patriotism is standing up during local parades in my hometown as the flag went by. As a child, I did not like standing up and sitting down so many times and really only cared about the next float. My complaints to my parents were quickly stopped and I was told that we stand up for the flag, because it is what we do as Americans. As I got older, I realized standing up for the flag as it passed by honored not just the flag, but what the United States stood for, the men and women who died in ser vice to our country and the military represented by the color guard that carried it. We celebrate July 4, 1776, as the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed and the birth of our nation began. The reality is not so simple. The armed conflict between the American colonists and Great Britain began more than a year before the signing, April 19, 1775, at the battles of Lexington and Concord. The Minutemen of the New England mili tia responded and forced the British back to Boston. These Citizen-Soldiers are part of the long heritage of our National Guard and Reserves. The Battle of Bunker Hill occurred June 17, 1775, and Gen. George Washington took command of the new Continental Army in July 1775. The British finally evacuated Boston on March 17, 1776. The military campaign was ongoing for a year before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The members of the Continental Congress knew without a legiti mate military force to back up the Declaration, the words on the paper would be meaningless and they would likely all be rounded up as traitors to the crown. The signing of the Declaration was, of course, not the end of the war. The fighting continued until the Americans defeated the British at the Battle of Yorktown on October 19, 1781. The Treaty of Paris officially ended the war and Great Britains acknowledgement of American independence was signed in September 1783. The United States path from independence until present day has not always been smooth. We fought a Civil War that threatened to tear the country apart. There were, and are still, disagreements on the direction our nation should take, what our priorities should be and what it means to be American. I know that our nation is the greatest in the world, has fought for and guaranteed much of the freedoms that the world enjoys and the men and women of our Armed Forces represent the best we have to offer. I am truly honored to serve with all of you. ommandCCorner Ttrooper to rooper By 1st Sgt. Patricia Kishman senior enlisted leaderBy Capt. John A. Schommer Joint Task Force Guantanamo, chief of staffIndependence Day is a day Americans all over the world spend time with family and friends. We get together for barbecues, attend parades and watch fireworks to celebrate the birth of our nation. For those wearing a military uniform it should be a time to reflect on what it means to wear the uniform. Troopers should take a little time to reflect on the significance of this day and the brave Americans who fought for independence, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We remember our core values, participate in parades and remember our comrades that may be in harms way today serving in more than 80 countries. We remember all those fallen comrades who have made the ultimate sacrifice to uphold the values that built this great nation. This is a time when we celebrate, but also reflect. I think this quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower is an important one to remember, Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die. All of our Troopers, their families and our civilian supporters need to work as one, take the time to get to know one another, help one another, fight the right battles, serve our communities and our country with spirit for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because that is what Freedom is, that is what America stands for. While everyone is celebrating this great nations independence, remember to refresh and earn your freedom daily. Enjoy life and celebrate this holiday, but also keep this statement by Curtis Billings in mind: A statistician made a few calculations and discovered that since the birth of our nation more lives have been lost in celebrating independence than in winning it. Look after one another, remind each other to buckle up in the car, call Safe Ride, take the bus or call a friend if youve had a drink, plan ahead so you dont find yourself in an awkward or dangerous situation, think twice about horseplay that could get out of hand, dont let your ego hurt you or your buddies and most of all, remember the buddy system. Many great patriots have fought and died to secure our Freedom. It is an honor to be here serving with you all on this 4th of July. We have a great military fighting force because of our great nations traditions of service and sacrifice. Pay homage to where your freedom comes from

The Wire July 5 5inging Praises Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Rebecca Wood JTF-PAO, thewire@jtfgtmo.southcom.milDriving up to the Joint Task Force Guantanamo Trooper Chapel on a Sunday evening, there isnt much to see on the outside except another dull beige-colored tent on the outskirts of Camp America. But as the age-old saying goes, dont judge a book by its cover. According to Capt. Brady Frederick, the 525th Military Police Battalion Chaplain, Service members who found the chapel for the first time, in the evening hours June 30, sensed a place they felt at home and could worship the Lord. We recently had two new units move into Camp America, Fredrick said. After talking to some of them, we realized there was a growing desire for an opportunity to have more than six-minute sermonettes at the guard mounts on Sundays. Frederick said the evening service was a joint effort between the different denominations to bring spiritual resiliency to Troopers and others who support the JTF-GTMO mission. This weeks service consisted of messages from four chaplains and a variety of worship songs. This service is specifically designed to bring worshippers of all denominations together for a time of fellowship, relaxation and for just a good ole time, said the Joint Detention Group Chaplain, Maj. Gladys Lanier. Sgt. Dwayne McClough from the 189th Military Police Co., works a 12hour shift on Sundays and doesnt get the opportunity to attend the regular morning service. This evening service makes it possible for me to attend, he said. I will definitely come back. The different speakers provided different perspectives; God is present here and I love the music. It was all very encouraging. Before the Troopers were excused for the night, Lanier left them with two more thoughts to consider: This church service is your hour of power, she said. We invite you all to add to this service, whether you are musically inclined or have other ideas in your head. We need you, she said. Go out and tell somebody about what is going on here. Bring them with you next time. Sunday evening services begin at 7 p.m., at the Camp America Trooper Chapel.

Lerone Simmons Staff Writer, thewire@jtfgtmo.southcom.milCompetitors braved the choppy Guantanamo waters, long windy roads and extreme heat June 29, for the Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored Guantanamo Olympic Triathlon at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The triathlon started with a 1.5km swim at the Windward Ferry landing, winded around the base with a 25km bike ride and finished out with a 10km run. Theres no question that Troopers assigned to the Joint Task Force Guantanamo, and NAVSTA-GTMO are physically fit. But a triathlon tests even the most physically fit, both physically and mentally. I pushed through a few walls, said Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Tyler C. Kuhn, a machinery technician and tactical crewman, JTF-GTMO. Kuhn, who trained for three months, said the swim was very challenging, but an unexpected technicality proved to be even more challenging. I popped my front tire about five miles from the bike finish, but kept pushing on, Kuhn said. Kuhn was one of 21 individual challengers who participated in the triathlon. Fourteen teams of three also took the challenge, with each individual running a different leg of the race. Communication played a big part in making this happen; keeping tabs on the weather, water stations, names and numbers, amount of swimmers in the water, medical, base security and port operations were all needed to ensure a great event, said Dennis Anthony, MWR fitness coordinator. His team of volunteers stationed throughout the triathlon directed traffic, counted participants and provided water along the route. Navy Lt. j.g. Rachael Wheelous, a nurse assigned to the Joint Medical Group, JTF-GTMO, along with her colleagues, Navy Lt. Candice West and Navy Ensign Sarah Alexander, both nurses assigned to JMG, were at the water station by the bike turnaround point past Camp X-Ray. Supporting all the competitors and their hard work while surrounded by two great colleagues is a great way to spend the day, said Wheelous. After the last competitor finished, the winners received medals in a short ceremony. Graphic by Staff Sgt. Aaron Hiler/The Wire

Leaving it better than you found itStory and photos by Sgt. Cassandra Monroe Staff Writer, thewire@jtfgtmo.southcom.mil The waters were calm and quiet, and besides the occasional scurry of a frightened iguana and small waves crashing up the shore, Hospital Cay beach was scurrying with activity June 30. Although the beach seemed almost deserted, the trash left behind suggested that it was anything but abandoned. And with nearly 42 sign-ups for the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Beach Brigade, Troopers arrived, trash bags in tow, ready to clean. The beach was ridden with plastic bottles, paper, glass materials and aluminum products along the shoreline. The dumpster, which hadnt been cleaned out in some time, was overflowing; trash scattered and stuck in nearby trees. Since last year, weve been trying to do a beach clean up once a month, said Katie Stanley, MWR director for Guantanamo Bay. Hospital Cay was in the rotation of our other beaches and I heard that it was dirty so we came out to try to give it some love. The brigade was able to clean the beach rather quickly and managed to collect more than 30 oversized bags of trash. This is my second time out here and there is trash everywhere, said Spc. Leck Ung, a military police officer with the 812th Military Police Company. Im glad I was able to come out today and fix it up and make it look nice for everyone that comes here. Hospital Cay, which originally held an old hos pital reserved for quarantined personnel afflicted with diseases, now serves as a quiet beach desti nation for the residents of Guantanamo Bay. It is in the cleaning rotation along with Glass, Cable, Windmill and Girl Scout beaches. Some of the Troopers even recovered cool beach finds like sea glass that was specific to Cuban territory. If you help out and make it look nice, people will be able to come here later and enjoy the beach and enjoy the view instead of seeing trash, said Ung. This place is an isolated island but when people work together, it helps.

Graphic by Staff Sgt. Aaron Hiler/The WireJTF readies for Ramadan, makes provisions for Troopers and detaineesJoint Task Force Guantanamos cultural advisors and chaplains corps are preparing for Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fast, which begins July 9. Throughout the month, Muslims world-wide will abstain from food and drink during daylight hours, and take time to reflect and meditate to redirect focus to a more selfsacrificial way of life. Fasting disciplines you, said JTF-GTMO Cultural Advisor, Zak. Fasting is not only about food and drink, but you are supposed to fast from everything. Your mouth the words you utter; your hands you are not supposed to use your hands to harm people; your mind you are to think only good things, spiritual things, he said. That is what fasting is. And in order to support the detainees and Troopers assigned to JTF-GTMO, the Task Force is prepared with specialized meals and times, and prayer services for practicing Muslims to celebrate Ramadan. We adjust our meal times for detainees to make sure they receive a meal before dawn, because you cant receive anything after that first prayer, Zak said. We give them dates and honey around 4 p.m. so they can break their fast right away at sunset at 7:45 p.m., he said. Midnight snacks of cheese and soup are also provided. For detainees on hunger strike, they are also fed in accordance with Muslim traditions at the time of sunrise and sunset. Zak said it is also important for Troopers who are Islamic to be afforded an opportunity to practice their faith during this holy time. We invite a Muslim chaplain and conduct prayers at our Mosque, Zak said. He will be here to answer questions, talk with our Troopers and visit with them in the camps. While it is not required that a Trooper notify their chain of command of their religious prefereneces, Zak said it would be helpful for commanders to know who is celebrating Ramadan. This way, leadership can make provisions for Troopers who need to adjust meal times. It is nothing to be secretive about, he said. If you are working midnight shift and you want a meal at midnight, just put your name on the list. Zak said what is most important during Ramadan is for all Troopers to understand the Muslim traditions, and be accepting of the period of fast, and better understand it. Detainees are not here because of their religion, he said. Talking about the religion in a negative way is never helpful, because we all (in the U.S.) come from different parts of the world originally. We have different religions, so it is important to respect each other, he said. Our lack of knowledge of Ramadan or Islam is no excuse. Ramadan will run through Aug. 8. For more information about Ramadan, visit www.isna.net. To schedule Islamic counseling with Chaplain Maj. Abdullah A. Hulwe, call ext. 2323 or ext. 2218.

Courtesy Columbia PicturesBy Sgt. Cassandra Monroe Staff Writer, thewire@jtfgtmo.southcom.milAfter a sudden crash during a routine flight through space, Cypher (Will Smith) and Kitai (Jaden Smith), land on Earth, 1,000 years after its demise in After Earth. I couldnt help but think the father-son duo were awkwardly acting out their own life, since Kitai struggled with fulfilling the role his father expected as a commander, while Cypher was already a respected military leader. With Cypher injured, Kitai is forced to recover an emergency beacon from another side of the crash area. Oh, by the way, there is a large alien creature that may or may not have gotten loose and Kitai must avoid it at all costs. Im a girl who likes action and excitement in the movies, and this movie just dragged. When it did get exciting and action filled, I genuinely enjoyed those parts; however, there were a lot of unnecessary moments that just seemed to take longer to get the point across than it should have. There were a few cringe-worthy moments for me, and by cringe-worthy, I mean awkward acting. I will say that I thought the cinematography was good. I felt like I was there, a millennium post-fatal event that led to Earths demise. I also liked the overall premise of overcoming fear, and I thought that Kitai portrayed it well; growing in personal courage and strength. This movie was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, and Ill let you figure out the twist, if there is one. Save your time and avoid seeing this wreckage. Overall, I dont think any banana rats would want to survive this crash. I want to give After Earth one banana rat, but Ill throw in an extra as a battle buddy, like Cypher and Kitai. By Staff Sgt. Lorne Neff Staff Writer, thewire@jtfgtmo.southcom.mil Courtesy Mythology Entertainment Action-packed, good acting makes White House a good watchThis action film, directed by Roland Emmerich (The Patriot and Independence Day), and starring Channing Tatum, is the must see for the holiday week. John Cale (Tatum), a divorced dad and ex-Soldier, inter views for a secret service position at the White House. Of course his interviewer (Maggie Gyllenhaal) turns out to be someone who knows him from his irresponsible past and makes it clear he cannot be trusted with this most important job. It Probably didnt help that he brought his daughter Emily (Joey King), with him. In a that escalated quickly- type of way, a group of men take over the White House, guided by Martin Walker (James Woods), an agent in his last week before retirement. Holding a grudge after losing his son in an operation ordered by Presi dent James Sawyer (Jamie Fox), the action quickens leaving no choice but for Cale to save the day. This movie is very reminiscent of the Die Hard franchise. Both main characters happen to be in the wrong place at the right time for their much-needed heroics. In Die Hard, the hero spends the movie trying to rescue his wife, while in White House Down, Cale tries to save his daughter. She practically steals the show by the end of the movie. There are many other similarities, but thats not the reason to see the movie. The action is fast paced and almost non-stop once it gets going. In addition, we get to see the White House torn apart in the process. The movie does have some flaws, mainly a huge, unresolved problem with the 25th amendment. However, thats for the constitutional lawyers. The acting doesnt get in the way of the action and thats what counts in the end. It is a good diversion for 91 minutes. I give this movie three banana rats. After Earth crashes and burns at a theater near you 10http://www.jtfgtmo.southcom.mil/xwebsite/index.html
