Guantanamo Bay chief petty officer selectees participate in a community service event Sept. 29. The group will be pinned during a
ceremony Sept. 16.


Chief selectees give back to GTMO

By MC2 Kimberly Williams, Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Public Affairs


W ith chief's induction season
in full-swing Navy-wide,
Guantanamo Bay (GTMO)
chief selectees found time to give back
to the local community during a com-
munity service project Sept. 29 at the
Lighthouse Museum.
The selectees and a few current
members painted the faded and chipped


stairs, doors and trim of the building
in efforts to breathe life back into the
historic structure.
"This museum has been here for
well over 100 years,' said Chief (sel.)
Aviation Electronics Technician Duane
Plymel. "Anybody who has never been
here seriously needs to get a good look
at the inside. There is a lot of good his-


tory about the base here."
Plymel said that the group has com-
pleted several other projects during the
course of their six-week induction, but
this particular project allowed them to

I HE FACTS ABOUT MRSA

Staphylococcus aureus, often called "staph", is a common type of bacteria that
can be found in the nose and on the skin of about one out of every three people.
Methicillin-resistant Staphyolcoccus aureus (MRSA) are staph that are not
killed by many of the antibiotics doctors used to prescribe most commonly for
staph infections. Until the mid-1990s, MRSA mainly affected patients in hospitals
and other healthcare settings. Since that time, a new strain of MRSA emerged.
This new strain is called community-associated MRSA, and has rapidly become
one of the most common causes of skin and soft tissue infections among otherwise
health people in the community.
Many people carry MRSA on their skin and most will never get sick from it.
Skin infections occur when the bacteria get in through small scrapes or cuts, some-
times too small to notice. The infected area usually begins with a red bump that
resembles a pimple or insect bite. If untreated, the lesion may become hard and
painful or may drain pus (often called a "boil" or a skin abscess). Most commu-
nity-associated MRSA infections can be treated with several types of antibiotics,
including some that can be taken by mouth. Not all MRSA skin infections require
antibiotics; treatment decisions should be made by a doctor or other licensed
healthcare provider.
MRSA is most often spread through direct physical contact with an infected
person. Draining lesions are highly infectious and represent an important source of
spread. MRSA can also be spread by touching objects that have been soiled with
drainage from an infected wound- e.g., bandages, towels, or athletic equipment-
although this is less common than direct person-to-person spread. Outbreaks of
MRSA have occurred within households, on sports teams, in daycare centers, and
in other settings where people have close contact or share equipment and personal
items.

The selectees and a few current members painted the faded and chipped stairs, doors and trim of the building in efforts to breathe life back into the historic structure. “This museum has been here for well over 100 years,’ said Chief (sel.) Aviation Electronics Technician Duane Plymel. “Anybody who has never been here seriously needs to get a good look at the inside. There is a lot of good his tory about the base here.” Plymel said that the group has com pleted several other projects during the course of their six-week induction, but this particular project allowed them to build a different type of camaraderie. “This kind of project brings us to gether,” said Plymel. “It allows us to do work outside of a typical classroom set

There is a lot of heritage with this particular site. You get to see a lot of pictures of all ranks from junior enlisted past. It makes you feel good about being in the Navy,” said Plymel. According to one selectee, the light house project added value to his time in GTMO, something he says many people miss when they seclude themselves to their living quarters. “All of the work done at this museum is done by volunteer work,” said Chief (sel.) Intelligence Specialist (SW) Mat thew Rose. “It needs a lot of work and we want to ensure that it is in good con dition for everyone to enjoy. Prior to this project I had never been here, so this is exciting for me.

A policy change made last year, called the PCS Obliga delay in issuing orders for PCS moves beyond October. Under the new policy, which was implemented across the services, funding must be provided at the time the PCS orders are written. Previously the Navy could issue orders once a PCS move was negotiated and supply funding when the move occurred. nearly depleted, NPC must wait until new funds are made available Oct. 1, before anymore PCS orders are issued. Some Sailors who have negotiated PCS orders using Career Management System/Interactive Detailing (CMS/ ID) or directly through their detailer may need to wait processes associated with PCS moves, like overseas screening, sea duty screening, special duty screening and scheduling household goods and vehicle shipments. orders which contain a line of accounting data to pay for services associated with moves. can move to their new locations. "We are fully aware of the potential impacts," said Rear Adm. Don Quinn, deputy chief of naval personnel. "My staff is looking to apply any available end-of-year money to PCS. I thank you for your patience and support as we act to solve this challenging resource issue." been able to use the remaining funds to begin paying for FY-10 moves. "Projections indicate that we will only be able to release orders in August and September for about 20 percent who manages PCS funding accounts at NPC. "We will do our best to provide Sailors and their families with as much information and lead time as possible, but the late receipt of orders will result in compressed PCS timelines with few options for relocating families early," Weitzman said. timing and families. The priority moves are global war on terror support assignment rotations, career milestone bil at sea for deployed units and working up to deploy, and keeping the training pipelines moving. NPC issues approximately 88,000 sets of PCS orders The facts about MRSA Staphylococcus aureus, often called “staph”, is a common type of bacteria that can be found in the nose and on the skin of about one out of every three people. Methicillin-resistant Staphyolcoccus aureus (MRSA) are staph that are not killed by many of the antibiotics doctors used to prescribe most commonly for staph infections. Until the mid-1990s, MRSA mainly affected patients in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Since that time, a new strain of MRSA emerged. This new strain is called community-associated MRSA, and has rapidly become one of the most common causes of skin and soft tissue infections among otherwise health people in the community. Many people carry MRSA on their skin and most will never get sick from it. Skin infections occur when the bacteria get in through small scrapes or cuts, some times too small to notice. The infected area usually begins with a red bump that resembles a pimple or insect bite. If untreated, the lesion may become hard and painful or may drain pus (often called a “boil” or a skin abscess). Most commu nity-associated MRSA infections can be treated with several types of antibiotics, including some that can be taken by mouth. Not all MRSA skin infections require antibiotics; treatment decisions should be made by a doctor or other licensed healthcare provider. MRSA is most often spread through direct physical contact with an infected person. Draining lesions are highly infectious and represent an important source of spread. MRSA can also be spread by touching objects that have been soiled with drainage from an infected wounde.g., bandages, towels, or athletic equipmentalthough this is less common than direct person-to-person spread. Outbreaks of MRSA have occurred within households, on sports teams, in daycare centers, and in other settings where people have close contact or share equipment and personal items. To prevent MRSA skin infections, practice good hygiene: Communiyt-Associated MRSA Information for the Public, TheCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has received inquiries about infections with antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant s. aureus [MRSA]) among persons who have no apparent contact with the healthcare system.
