Gilbort Vol. 63 No. 47 Friday, Nov. 24, 2006 GTMO Sailor recognized by senior leadershipBy MC1 Igo Wordu, Public Affairs OfficePhoto by MC1 Igo WorduLN1 (SW) Felicia McLean from the Regional Legal Service Office (RLSO) Southeast Detachment, U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, has been selected as the Regional Legal Service Office Southeast (RLSO SE) Sailor of the Quarter for the third quarter of calendar year 2006. She was then selected as the Commander, Naval Legal Service Command’s (NLSO) Sailor of the Quarter for the same quarter, making her the best Legalman in the Navy. Her citation, signed by RADM James Houck, Commander, Naval Legal Service Command, highlighted McLean’s diligence, dedication and commitment to service as factors leading to her selection. “All nominees represented their respective commands in an exemplary manner, with McLean’s effort being especially noteworthy,” said Houck. “Devoted to self improvement, LN1(SW) McLean dedicates countless off-duty hours to personal and professional development… A true mentor, she routinely raises her hand to accept the most difficult and complex tasking." In one quarter, McLean was instrumental for reviewing more than 200 daily incident reports and providing input and recommendations to the Officer in Charge on each administrative and disciplinary action. She expertly prepared, reviewed and processed two-court martial, 10 debarment letters, 10 Non-Judicial Punishment (NJP), Executive Officer Inquiry (XOI) and Disciplinary Review Board (DRB) cases. She also per-LN1(SW) Felicia McLean has been selected as the Commander, Naval Legal Service Command’s (NLSO) Sailor of the Quarter.

In addition to her normal duties, McLean is the discipline officer for the naval station. She provides daily guidance on legal matters, and legal assistance. She also coordinated several back-toschool events including Family Skate Night, a first for NAVSTA GTMO. She has also volunteered to head the cheerleading camp for MWR with more than 50 participants. “Her vast rating knowledge and expertise on diverse legal matters are invaluable,” said LCDR Matthew L. Beran, officer in charge RLSO Southeast Detachment GTMO, McLean’s supervisor. “Her performance is constantly at a superlative level.” “I am truly grateful for such an honor," said McLean. "None of this would have been possible without the support of my family as well as my Chain of Command. The appropriate words for this occasion would be, “Nothing is impossible if you set goals and have aspirations to succeed in life”.

Otto, DON 2006 Social Worker of the YearStory and photo by MC1 Igo Wordu, NAVSTA Public AffairsLT Susan Otto, who works at U.S. Naval Hospital, Guantanamo Bay, has been named the Department of the Navy (DoN) Social Worker of the Year for 2006. The announcement was made at the 21st Annual Uniform Services Social Work Conference held recently in Washington, D.C. CAPT Ronald Sollock, commanding officer of the U.S. Naval Hospital, nominated Otto for the award, and said her contributions to GTMO’s social system are worthy of recognition. “LT Otto is the lead thread in the fabric of the complex Guantanamo Bay’s NAVSTA and JTF social systems,” said LCDR Christopher Streeter, head of the hospital’s Behavior Health Department, and Otto’s department head. “She has been involved in every conceivable social corner of the base in some fashion.” Otto is the only active duty social worker at an isolated overseas duty station. Her responsibilities cover most facets of the lives of military personnel, their families and in general, all of the residents of GTMO. She has been here since February 2004. “It feels great to be acknowledged and appreciated for the work I love doing,” said Otto. “We are in a unique situation here at GTMO due to being an isolated overseas duty station with limited resources. Compared to most other commands that provide services to only active duty members and their families, we are available for everyone on island.” On any given day, her clients are likely to present any variety of issues, including servicemembers facing deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan, and those seeking counseling related to previous combat tours, separation from family members, family problems on the homefront, and feelings of isolation. Additionally in May 2006, Otto was presented with the American Red Cross Clara Barton Volunteer Leadership Honor Award, the highest Red Cross award any volunteer can receive. It is presented to the volunteer who shows superior cooperation with other volunteers in developing and implementing effective solutions in a resourceful and productive manner. “The American Red Cross greatly appreciated LT Otto’s dedication and devotion to the men and women of the Armed Forces,” said Denise Clark, the Guantanamo Bay American Red Cross Station Manager. “Her professional social work skills are a great asset to the mission of lending comfort and companionship to those deployed far from home.” “I appreciate the support I received from the staff I work with, my chain of command, Fleet and Family Service Center, and the assigned Chaplains,” said Otto. “There are many opportunities here to get involved with the community, and that really make a difference in the quality of life of GTMO residents” The DON Social Worker of the Year award was instituted in 1988 as a way to recognize significant contributions by military social workers advocating for or providing services to military families. In order to be nominated for the award, the nominee must be a social worker, employed by DoN medical treatment facility, Fleet and Family Support Center, or other DON organization. “LT Otto is an engaged, motivated, principled professional who is the embodiment of Navy Social Worker core values and standards,” said Streeter. “Her impact is felt throughout the department, command, the Naval Station, and beyond. Most importantly, the positive impact of her presence is felt in the emotional lives of everyone she encounters.”Job well done — NAVSTA Commanding Officer, CAPT Mark Leary, presents a Navy Achievement Medal to YN3 Hershel LeMaster, of NAVSTA Admin., on Nov. 16.

Items on display were mostly hand tools including drills, laser levels, and chipping hammers, plus many free giveaways. David Cork, government account manager for Home Depot, said the tool show is the first of its kind that his company has sponsored at Guantanamo Bay. He also said that shows like these help bring tools needed by GTMO residents to their doorsteps. “Because GTMO is isolated as it is, I’m assuming that people can’t just get up and drive into town looking for hand tools that they need,” said Cork. “So this type of show is important to GTMO community especially since the holiday season is fast approaching.” Representatives from each of the manufactures at the show rendered technical support and other assistance to customers. Show organizers handed out free T-shirts, hats and bandanas bearing the manufactures logo. They also held a raffle every 30 minutes in which they gave away assorted prizes.

Harold and Ruth have been at GTMO since August 2002 and reside at Caravella Point.Photo by Roberta StanleyIs salt the latest villain to join the lineup of dietary outlaws like cholesterol, transfats, and refined sugar? Yes, says the American Medical Association (AMA), who believes that our excessive consumption of sodium is contributing to America’s soaring incidence of high blood pressure, and may lead to strokes, heart attacks, and kidney disease. Currently, we consume a 4,000-6,000 milligrams (mgs.) of salt per day. The recommended maximum is about 2,300 mgs., or a generous teaspoon. For those with high blood pressure, decrease that amount to 1,500 mgs. Children 4 8 years old need only 1,200 mgs. of salt, but typically consume at least 2,800 mgs. per day. Table salt or even salt added during cooking, is not the major problem. More than 75 percent of our sodium intake comes from processed foods and prepared restaurant meals. A cup of canned soup or one frozen meal can provide 50 percent of the daily maximum. Our heavy reliance on processed and fast foods has prompted the AMA to adopt new policies to help change the way Americans think about salt with the goal of reducing sodium intake. First, they call for a 50 percent reduction of sodium in processed foods, fast food products and restaurant meals over the next decade. They are urging the Food and Drug Administration to develop label markings and warnings for foods containing 480 mgs. of sodium or more per serving. Finally, the AMA believes that consumers must be educated about the benefits of long-term, moderate reductions in sodium intake. Here are a few steps toward reducing salt intake. — Read the labels when shopping. If you buy processed or convenience foods, opt for low-sodium products. — Remove salt from recipes Americans urged to cut sodium intakeStory by Marianne Airhart, (WIC) Women, Infant, and Children Overseas ProgramThe Atlantic Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command recently awarded the U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay base support services contract to BREMCOR. BREMCOR replaces Del-Jen International on Dec. 1. The Naval Station base support services contract includes transportation operations and maintenance, family housing maintenance, consolidated bachelor quarters operations and maintenance, facilities maintenance, pest control, grounds maintenance, custodial, recycling/re-fuse removal, and station landfill operations. whenever possible. — Use herbs, spices and other flavorings to enhance foods. — At restaurants, ask for your food to be prepared without salt. Be in control! The AMA is confident the implementation of these recommendations would reduce sodium intake, result in a bettereducated consumer, and decrease the incidence of high blood pressure in this country. BREMCOR is a joint venture of Burns and Roe Services Corporation with EMCOR Facility Services. EMCOR is a major provider of facility maintenance services throughout the United States. Burns & Roe Services Corporation has supported NAVSTA GTMO for more than 40 years and operates many other service contracts at the station. BREMCOR has one major subcontractor, Eastern Maintenance Services, who will provide family housing maintenance, bachelor quarters operations and maintenance, and grounds maintenance.

More than 125,000 students are earning MBAs online from institutions nationwide. Columbia College launched the Online Campus in 2000 with 10 classes and 180 students. Today, the Online Campus offers more than 400 classes and 16 degrees with more than 12,000 students taking at least one online course each year. As with all online and oncampus degree programs at Columbia College, the online MBA is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. In addition, few accredited online MBA programs in the country, much less private institutions, can match Columbia College’s tuition at $290 per credit hour. Eight-week online MBA classes are offered in January, March, June, August and October. Currently, the MBA also is offered on campus at six Columbia College campuses. Students living near those campuses may take MBA classes online, or in seat or both. While students can earn an online MBA in 15 months, most people average about two years to complete the degree. Students can transfer in nine of the 36 credit hours needed to graduate, making it possible for them to earn an MBA in less than one year. To be considered for admission to the online MBA program at Columbia College, students must have completed an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution with at least a 3.0 undergraduate cumulative GPA and have two to three years of substantive work experience.

The CSS provides valuable feedback to DoDEA from its most important customers students, parents, and teachers about the quality of education it provides and areas needing improvement. Officials estimate it will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the survey which will be available online at, and clicking on the CSS link. Where internet access is a concern for parents, an electronic version of the surveys are available for printing. Separate surveys will be given to teachers, parents, students in grades 4-5, students in grades 6-8, and students in grades 9-12. The surveys were developed through a review process of various groups, including the DoDDS and DDESS teachers’ unions, DoDEA Teachers of the Year, superintendents, principals, students and Education Directorate staff members at the DoDEA headquarters. Information derived from the surveys will be used to improve planning efforts at all levels throughout DoDEA. Schools, districts, and areas will use the survey results to gain insight into the satisfaction levels of sponsors and students, which is one of many measures used for future planning of programs and services offered to DoDEA’s students. The survey results will also be used to monitor the DoDEA Community Strategic Plan (CSP), which contains the strategic direction for DoDEA for the years 2006-2011.
