-Letters to the editorThe Parade: "A load of hard work..."


This is my first December here, however I have never enjoyed a community event anywhere more than the recent
Christmas parade. From my viewpoint, the parade was a quality happening. Obviously it did not happen by chance. A load of hard work and hundreds of people-hours went into organizing, building and
conducting our parade. Each participating organization put impressive effort and entertaining creativity into their entries.
The giant iguana from Public Works Department and


the theme fioat from the
Naval Hospital were noteworthy.
The vast majority of the
vehicles and drivers were provided by PWD. Without these and the coordinating
efforts of Chief Coch, the parade would have been a non-event.
T'ne Marines of Marine BarracKs provided more than
their fair share to include the color guard, a marching platoon, a tanK and crew, and a howitzer and crew. In
aduliion, ne Marine Barracks helped coordinate the parade,


built the reviewing areas an6 proiaed cofainicarLons and puolic ajrass syscars, not to forget the clean-up following the event.
If all commands provided the similar support given oy PWD and Marines, our parade would have been that much better.
Everyone involved d great job and I hope they enjoyed the efforts.

Merry Christmas Capt. Neal Smith


Trees sale was a "matter of economics"


Reply to December 4 letter to the editor.

Christmas trees on sale at the Navy Exchange during
Christmas are central contract procurement, meaning
the Navy Resale System has a single buying point for all Christmas trees sold in all Navy Exchange worldwide in order that volume quantity discounts may be derived.
Unfortunately, inhirent with this system are firm delivery dates and, in the case of Guantanamo Bay, delivery at Jacksonville, the overseas point of shipment.
This year the Christmas trees were delivered early to the point of shipment. There were two options available
then at Jacksonville, reject


the load and have no Christmas trees at GTMO, or accept the load early and hold at GTMO and sell at a later date.
Option one was not considered, although the probability of .monetary recovery from the vendor would have been good, but no
assurance of Christmas tree availabilty in GTMO.
Number two option was taken in order to ensure the availability of the trees for us. Early sale was undertaken in order to save detention
and demurrage fee.
This is a fee charged by Trailer Marine Transport for vans not immediately off-loaded after delivery to the customer, within 72 hours.


Daily rate for this fee is $40 a day.
Since the barge arrived on November 26, holding the van
under refrigeration until December 14, a period of 15 days, could have caused $600 in detention charges aga t the Navy Exchange.
Announcement notices a trees would be on sale November 30 were put out to
TV8, the Gazette and Plan of the Day on December 26.
Again, it was not the intent of the Navy Exchange
to phase out a tradition or deny the scouts the much needed funding, it was a
matter of economics.

Letters to the editor __ 4 The Parade: "A load of hard work." This is my first December here, however I have never enjoyed a community event anywhere more than the recent Christmas parade. From my viewpoint, the parade was a quality happening. Obviously it did not happen by chance. A load of hard work and hundreds of people-nours wenr into organizing, building and conducting our parade. Each participating organization put impressive effort and entertaining creativity into their entries. The giant iguana from Public Works Department and Trees sale wa Reply to December 4 letter to the editor. Christmas trees on sale at the Navy Exchange during Christmas are central contract procurement, meaning the Navy Resale System has a single buying point for all Christmas trees sold in all Navy Exchange worldwide in order that volume quantity discounts may be derived. Unfortunately, inhirent with this system are firm delivery dates and, in the case of Guantanamo Bay, delivery at Jacksonville, the overseas point of shipment. This year the Christmas trees were delivered early to the point of shipment. There were two options available then at Jacksonville, reject the theme float from the Naval Hospital were notewor thy. The vast majority of the vehicles and drivers were provided by PWD. Without these and the coordinating efforts of Chief Coch, the parade would have been a non-evenc. ine Marines of Marine Barracks provided more than their fair share to include the color guard, a marching platoon, a tans and crew, and a howitzer and crew. In adinion, the Marine Barracks helped coordinate the parade, built the reviewing areas .a p e ineeu ; ilin~l2 ,a dnsnaand penlile nc:re .' ssreee, not to forget the clean-up following the event. If all commands provided the similar support given ay P5D and Marines, our parade would have been that much better. Everyone involved great job and I hope they enjoyed the efforts. srry Christmas Capt. Neal Smith the load and have no Christmas trees at GTMO, or accept the load early and hold at GTMO and sell at a later date. Option one was not considered, although the probability of monetary recovery from the vendor would have been good, but no assurance of Christmas tree availabilty in GTMO. Number two option was taken in order to ensure the availability of the trees for us. Early sale was undertaken in order to save detention and demurrage fee. This is a fee charged by Trailer Marine Transport for vans not immediately off-loaded after delivery to the customer, within 72 hours. Daily rate for this fee is $40 a day. Since the barge arrived on November 26, holding the van under refrigeration until December 14, a period of 15 days, could have caused $600 in detention charges ag t the Navy Exchange. Announcement notices trees would be on sale November 30 were put out to TV8, the Gazette and Plan of the Day on December 26. Again, it was not the intent of the Navy Exchange to phase out a tradition or deny the scouts the much needed funding, it was a matter of economics. Lt. Ondr.
