01 THE WIRE | www.jtfgtmo.southcom.mil/xWEBSITE/index.html haplains olumn Today many people will be dressed up in different costumes saying, Trick or Treat. Some people celebrate Halloween merely by donning a costume with the intention of having a good time. Other people think Halloween is a day created to worship Satan and encourages darkness and evil. So, who is right? Are believers able to celebrate Halloween without conceding our faith? The Halloween custom originated in a pagan belief and was observed on Oct. 31. It is said the dead would revisit their homes on this day, and supernatural powers would control the ghosts, goblins, and witches that were wandering about. It was believed this was the only day of the year that the devil was summoned for evil purposes. Many Christians do different things for Halloween; some have a Hallelujah Night. Others avoid the scary and evil costumes and wear innocent costumes. Some elect not to do anything at all, choosing to stay home. We can choose what to do on Halloween. The Bible does not mention Halloween; however it gives us insight. In the Old Testament, witchcraft was an offense punishable by death. There are scriptures in the New Testament which teach that occultism and being a believer do not go together. Should a Believer celebrate Halloween? There is nothing inherently evil about a person wearing a costume and asking for candy. However, there is something about the pagan beliefs of Halloween that is anti-God and should be avoided! If we Believers are going to take part in Halloween, our costume and our conduct should still imitate a transformed life. The choice is ours to make. As with everything, we Believers are to incorporate Biblical values and beliefs, even on Halloween.ARTICLE BY 1ST LT. FRANK L. HOUGHTALING JTF STAFF CHAPLAIN ARTICLE BY COMMAND SGT. MAJ. EDWIN L.

I need to know that I made a difference, that I had an impact on others, and that my life left a lasting impression upon this world and the people I came into contact with. My goal in life is to be great; it doesnt matter if I succeed by someone elses standard. Its knowing in my own heart and mind that I did my best. Daring to be great comes with a fear of failing, or not being good enough. My greatest fear is that I have not done enough; I have not reached high enough, and that I failed to seize the moment when it was afforded to me. My greatest fear is not that I will die poor, lonely or even young. I fear that I would have lived without purpose, and life had no substantial meaning. There will be no proof or evidence I had actually ever existed. That all these years I have lived, and the things I have done and accomplished will only be explained in a small inscription that can be found on my tombstone. I fear that for those who have crossed my path that I didnt treat them right or offer them a kind word or greeting. If I missed an opportunity to have ignited a spark of hope in someone and they went on to live to better themselves and others. So I say to you today, I will live each day trying to reach greatness that lives in every one of us. I will no longer settle for ordinary, but strive for extraordinary. I will lead the pack and never run with the pack; I will stand out in everything I do. Mediocrity will never tell of my deeds, only greatness will do. In time we all disappear and die. The goal isnt to live forever but to create something that will. Never forget to leave a lasting impression no matter how big or how small. Its about what youre remembered for, so make your own footprint. My greatest fear is that I wont give everything that Ive got every time; I wont push beyond my mental constraints; I wont push myself physically past my limitations; I wont be the very best that man has to offer. My greatest fear is that I will fail. Dare to be great.

05 THE WIRE | www.jtfgtmo.southcom.mil/xWEBSITE/index.html Volume 17 Issue 01 | October 31, 2014 | THE WIRE 06 News FEATURE News FEATUREIn the darkness of one of Guantanamo and psychotic-zombie clowns. Circus music plays, agonizing screams and unbearable banging is heard throughout this trail of darkness. Just when you think youre out, an evil clown with a chainsaw chases you down the street. That clown is senior class president, Cameron Sode, of GTMO high school. This years senior class hosted the annual haunted house. Theyre raising money for the senior class. They do a haunted house every year, and its built inside this bunker. So, every year they look for people who can help out and volunteer to be a part of the props, said Army 1st Sgt. William Dufault from the 747th Military Police Company who was covered in fake blood and volunteered for this event. Volunteers work the majority of these senior class events. Most of the volunteers are from the Joint Task Force. The Coast Guard provided all the manpower for the building of the haunted house last year and stayed throughout the event as costume actors. They were a big help, said Richard Sode, a contract program manager and Camerons father. The haunted house opened on Oct. 22 and continued through Halloween night. Each year, the senior class of GTMO starts their fundraising events with a haunted house. This is a lengthy process to get started with paperwork, reliance on the prior senior class and the community. Weve done all this out of pocket; everything weve done we havent used any of the funds. We havent asked anyone for money, and people donated things to us, Cameron said. It does show our dedication to get this done and being here for the people too. Camerons older brother, Derek V. Sode, was the prior senior class president and orchestrated the fundraising events, which helped Cameron prepare for this years graduating class. Last year my brother was senior class here next year Ill be able to use the same volunteers and come up with something bigger and better, said Cameron. My goal has always been to raise more money than last years fund raising of the senior class. Hopefully well make it stronger this year. The senior class will host more events in the future. Most will be car washes, bake sales and bagging at the Navy Exchange to name a few. Volunteers can help with baking, washing cars and borrowing supplies, like shop vacuums and tarps. Cameron explained the success of the senior class doesnt only come from students, but from everybody else contributing their talents and skills. parents; you need teachers; you need the whole community, GTMO community, to support you. Without them we wouldnt be here, Cameron said. Were not here just to raise money for ourselves; were here for Guantanamo Bay, the military and the people who are here. Thats our goal. Its hot and uncomfortable. So, understandably, all anyone here wants is to relax after a long day after work. But keep in mind, safety should always be on top of the priority list. To ensure your safety, the JTF created a list of what you can and cannot do on a Mule or Gator. Some of the biggest concerns from the footwear, Preventative Maintenance Checks and Services of the vehicles, speeding, driving in the rain and driving with the windshield up. Martinez, the licensing agent and dispatcher for the the road all the time. The Mules and Gators dont come with windshield wipers. Though at times it may not seem like it, it rains here and driving in the rain without wipers is makes it a point when dispatching to let all drivers know to stay off the roads when it rains its for your safety. Operating a Gator while its raining is a no-go. said Army Sgt. Olujimi Burgess, dispatching NCO Another safety hazard to keep in mind with the windshields is that some of them are made of glass. Glass windows are particularly dangerous in the up position; therefore they shouldnt be driven with them in that position. If the windshield is up and its one made of glass it can fall and shatter if you hit a bump, Martinez said. PMCS is a weekly responsibility for those the vehicles are dispatched to. This type of preventative maintenance keeps these vehicles running and in better, safer condition for longer. Any damage needs to be reported, if it comes back as a safety issue, the vehicle will not be returned until pictures are taken and the problem has been addressed, Martinez said.

The event consisted of a 1.5-mile kayak loop and 7.5mile bicycle ride with two stops at the Ground Zero paintball range for target shooting. First up is a kayak trip, 1.5-miles to the battleship moorings at buoy 10, down to the marina fuel pier and back to the sailing center, said Tim Baugh, the outdoor recreation director for the GTMO MWR program. From there they will bicycle down Sherman toward the library and head over the hill to John Paul Jones coming out on to Kittery Beach Road. From there they will take Tarawa to Ground Zero paintball center, where they will rack their bicycles and take 10 shots at paintball targets. Each hit is worth 10 seconds off their total time. They will then do that loop again, back to the paintball range and take 10 more shots their race. MWR coordinators went above and beyond to make arrangements for all participants to ensure anyone who wanted to participate could have fun, including participants without marina captains license. life guards in the water on paddle boards and had a port patrol, and we have marina staff on standby just to keep an eye on everybody today, Baugh said. The GTMO MWR prides its self on bringing new and interesting events to the community and this event was no exception. I think the MWR did a good job, they are very good with giving the Service members things to do and this was a new event for them. It was great; Id do it again, said participant Staff Sgt.

When I was grounded for partaking in mischievous childhood adventures, I wasnt denied certain paltry rights like TV or video games; I was denied my freedom. Instead of a slap on the wrist for punching a cat or terrorizing my little brother, I was sent to my room for weeks sometimes months and allowed only to read or do homework. So, naturally, I became fascinated with literature. It was during one of these long hiatuses from reality that I discovered Russian literature, and the genius of Vladimir Nabokov. Born in 1899 in St. Petersburg, Russia, Nabokov is most famous for Lolita, which is about Professor Humbert Humbert who, after coming from Paris to New century, becomes involved with Charlotte Haze. She takes him in after his room burns down in a small New England town. It is in the Haze home that he meets and becomes fascinated with Hazes pre-teen daughter Dolores Lolita. The novel was Nabokovs instant claim to fame in America masterpiece. Lolita also became one of the most controversial pieces of 20th Century literature. Due to the nature of the novel, Lolita has become a noun described in several dictionaries as a seductive adolescent girl or a sexually precocious young girl. Lolitas context may overwhelm a few readers with its detail of pedophilia as Nabokov takes the reader more closely inside the psyche of a monster than most of us would ever feel comfortable. But, thats really what makes this, in my opinion, one the best of many great novels from the last century. Nabokovs ability to reach inside your mind and paint impulses and nightmarish desires on a mental canvas is on par with Vincent van Goghs Starry Night or Chopins Nocturne. Its an intellectual stimulus thats too content, to not cherish. His description of Humbert Humbert and Lolitas crosscountry journeys and malevolent escapades is breathtaking. Nabokov and the novel are so much more than a Sunday read. Literary geeks are seldom privy to such mastery of their craft. Its truly a once in generation experience. Lolita was the authors creative peak and perhaps sole masterpiece. But, the hundreds of his other novels, novellas, poems, short stories, dramas and works a gander. At the time of Nabokovs death in 1977, he had few peers on par intellectually or creatively. Truly, its a shame this master of literature isnt on a pedestal amongst the likes of Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway or John Steinbeck. As the sun sets on another day here at GTMO, a group of 20 or so Service members and civilians gather around the instructor of the Max Performance class offered by MWR through the GJ Denich Gym. This relatively new class started earlier this year, focuses on CrossFit type workouts, and is held between the childs baseball diamond and the two adult diamonds next to the gym. The onehour class starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. and being on time is one of the main components of this class. Its open to anybody and a big part of the class is being here on time, listen to my instructions, and last is check your pride at the door, said 1st Lt. Jon Lopez, the class instructor. When Lopez joined was a small gathering of like-minded physical us, now theres nights like tonight were there are 27. Its growing, he said. The class is open to all and Lopez welcomes anyone willing to listen, learn and be a healthy active individual. I like to build up with people who have never done this kind of work out. Whenever I get a new person I just start with the basics, and I try to design a work out thats good for them, but that they will start to grow with everyone else, Lopez said. With the basics down and consistently coming to the class Lopez has seen Service members improve not only physically but mentally as well. I get people who havent passed a came to me and in a little over a month they passed it. Thats the type of success I like to see coming out of here, Lopez said. I see, he said, but the way they walk and talk they start to get a natural swag, a Spc.

By the time we are done here, its a goal of mine to be able to do that entire workout.

The Broncos remain undefeated at home this season.GAME SPOTLIGHTMonday Night Football has come to be the best part about Monday if you ask this writer. If you wanted to laugh, cry, hold your breath in anticipation or simply enjoy a little drama on your Monday night, the Redskins against the Cowboys did not disappoint. This contest had it all, terrible defense by through to the half. On the offensive side, struggled to string together two plays without serious confusion at the scrimmage line. If life is about rhythm, McCoy didnt show any to speak of. Tony Romo, the Dallas Quarterback, often relied too heavily on the passing game and never really established a running threat to challenge the Redskins defensive line. Romo left the game after the sack while reaching for his lower back. And the drama continued. Romo came back to try and win the game but was unsuccessful and the game entered overtime. The Redskins won the Romos shoulders, he took over but couldnt get a fresh set of downs and the game ended with an incomplete pass near the sideline. McCoy and the Redskins left victorious in a huge upset 20-17. The Ole Miss Rebels headed into Death Valley and lost a stinker 10-7 to the LSU season, and dropping them 4 spots to No. 7 in the latest Associated Press college football poll. The Tigers moved up eight spots to No. 16. No. 1 Mississippi State and No. 2 Florida State are the only undefeated teams left from the Big Five Conferences. Mississippi State defeated Kentucky in a 45-31 shootout. Florida State had a bye week after eking by Notre Dame in Week 8. In other Top 25 games, Alabama jumped up a spot to No. 3 after cruising past Tennessee, as did No. 4 Auburn, No. 5 Oregon and No. 6 Notre Dame after defeating their opponents. No. 14 Arizona defeated Washington State in an exciting 59-37 game typical of the Pac12 Conference. Quarterback Taylor Kelly returned from an injury after three games to lead the No. 15 Arizona State Sun Devils to a 24-10 win over Washington. This weekends games have little to offer in terms of the new College Football Playoff with the top three teams having relatively easy games. But, the No. 4 Auburn versus No. 7 Ole Miss game has the potential for a shake-up in the playoff bracket.

But why do we get scared? Fear is a protective mechanism that has served our ancestors well for thousands of years and led to our survival. Fear is also a learned emotion. For example, if one falls into a well and struggles to get out, a fear of tight spaces or heights may develop. But then why do some of us like to get scared? There is a chemical component that is associated with both fear and enjoyment called an adrenalin rush. Dopamine is a chemical that is released in this process. It controls the brains pleasure center and gives us that feel good but scared emotion. Many people love that rush. They partake in activities such as bungee jumping, riding roller coasters, and yes, even going to haunted houses, just to get that sensation. So, there is no need to be afraid of being afraid.
