lq Four days a week the oncoming Marine sentries fall in on their Parade Grounds, forming a Guard Mount. This allows the oncoming Officer of the Day to inspect the men and their weapons and question the sentries on their orders which are to be carried out while on post. M/Sgt. Seneri, OOD, inspects a weapon during an Informal Guard Mount. Spanish Speaking Skit Victory Hill Fourth Grade Class gave a spanish speaking skit at the Marine Site Patio for an adult spanish speaking class.

The USS Randolph (CVS 15) arrived at Guantanamo Bay for refresher training with FTG after a six month stay in the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. While in the yard, the Randolph underwent a modernization program which will save the tax payers many dollars. The carrier is expected to stay in the area for about six weeks.

A Close Look At Fleet Training Group*" ASW is becoming more important with today's modern submarines. FTG rider J. F. White, SOC, observes an ASW Plot Drill. The shipriders grade the drills and exercises within their departments and offer constructive criticism to the shipboard sailors. Contamination from radiation is a killer. The ABC Monitoring Drills train men to find "hot spots" and to decontaminate the ship. In case of an actual emergency, the help given by the FTG may save many lives. Know,)How? (AFPS Weekly Feature) 1. In WWII, how many enemy planes shot down, within his own lines, qualified a pilot as an ace? 2. The diamond is the birthstone for what month? 3. How did the phrase "to get the sack" originate? (Answers to Quiz) "sfloqdsog ij olui Luau] AMit fl OqM ufins ispjnjy n uJO~ij "jldcV "aA!TA" A Gunnery Officer briefs his gun crews while V. E. Sumner, FTCS (left) and M. A. Cochran, GMCS, (right) stand by with their grading sheets. The man with the FTG arm band is dedicated to the readiness of the fleet. Every top-notch unit has at least one attribute that stands out. Doing the job in the best way possible just isn't enough. The Fleet Training Group, Guantanamo Bay, has been judged a top-notch unit. During their last Administrative Inspection, by Commander Training Command, U. S. Atlantic Fleet, FTG received and overall grade of OUTSTANDING. So what makes FTG so good? A close look answers the question. FTG's records show that during 1960 a total of 91 ships completed Shakedown/Refresher Training, seven ships reported for Reserve Operational Readiness Cruises, and four ships came to FTG but had their training periods shortened. This represented to FTG 21,148 "shiprider" days. This in itself is an impressive summary, but it still doesn't show why FTG is outstanding. In order to be a shiprider, (FTG personnel who are on board the ships while they are out to sea during training exercises) a Navy man must be expert in his field. Using careful observation, he should determine the good and not-so-good points of each ship's training program. A good shiprider, like the type on board Fleet Training Group Gitmo, develops the art of offering constructive criticism in a manner which inspires desire and determination in the shipboard sailors to heed his advice. An interest in human relations can be an appreciable part of each rider's successful efforts. (Continued on Page Three) "I Thank You Both" Colonel M. Adelman, Commanding Officer, Marine Barracks, and Mrs. Halliwell pin on new stripes on S/Sgt Halliwell. News of the advancement came to S/Sgt Halliwell March 17.
