USARSO Transportation Division:


Providing for all your PCS needs


story and photos by Charlie McElroy
Tropic Times Staff
FORT CLAYTON- The chances that something will get
lost, broken, or incorrectly routed during your PCS move are
really slim to zilch. The exceptionally high standards of the U.S.
Army South Transportation Division, the office that actually
handles the endless details and intricate ins and outs of your
PCS move, has everything under control.
Transportation Officer Arthur W. Myke has been with the
USARSO Transportatioh Division for 32 years. Myke and his
staff of more than 40 people have moved over 3,400 soldiers
and families since April.
"Experience is paramount to success in this business," says
Myke. The USARSO Transportation Division has gained lots
of experience over the decades. Their offices occupy nearly half
of the second floor of Building 519.
Everyone knows about the packing and shipping of per-
sonal property, especially during the past few months. The full
story of what goes on during a PCS move goes much farther
than just getting your household goods from point A to point
B
The USARSO Transportation Division is a turnkey opera-
tion performing all the aspects of your move from start to finish.
They counsel all military and civilian members on their ship-
ment entitlements. They also coordinate with local packing
companies for pick-up and with carriers for transport and deliv-
ery. And, they perform 100 percent quality control checks.
"Since April, we have been performing 100 percent personal
property quality assurance," says Myke. "We hired and
trained eight additional inspectors to ensure that all personal
property is correctly packed and that the right packing materi-
als are used."
Myke went on to say that the 100 percent figure for quality
control exceeds requirements. USARSO wants all aspects of
the drawdown to proceed with the highest standard of quality
and efficiency by opting to double the number of inspectors
and thereby achieve a 100 percent quality assurance figure.
Contracted civilian carriers must receive good scores on an
on-site quality assurance examination called a TQAP. "If the
carrier scores less that 90 percent, they are put on non-use sta-
tus," says Myke.

CW4 James W. Lane Jr. checks the packing list as Arlene
Correa, quality assurance inspector for the USARSO Transpor-
tation Division, approves the quality of handling of Lane's
household items making his PCS move stress free.


Experienced movers load personal household goods into shipping crates for the PCS move.


Security measures include putting metal bands around the
shipping crates at the residence site, not at the warehouse as
before. Also, after the metal band is rapped around the crate, a
seal is placed at each comer. The seal is impossible to dupli-
cate and an effective method to deter break-ins.
Carlson Wagonlit Travel Services is the contracted pro-
vider for making reservations and issuing airline tickets, but
it's the Transportation Division that's responsible for making
sure that the proper fares are used and the most recent routes
are assigned.
"They set it up in Washington D.C.," says Myke, "but
down here is were the rubber meets the road. Here is where it
happens."
Right in the thick of things best describes
where this civilian USARSO team can be
found working hard to take care that you,
your family and your belongings get where
they are going safe and sound.


Locally contracted civilian carriers attach the
metal band around the packing crate before
the crate leaves the residence.


Cable service ends
Page 2: The current contract with
Cable Onda will expire July 31. How-
ever, a plan has been worked out to en-
sure that cable television will continue
till Sept. 30. The new service will be
free. See Page 2 and find out the proce-
dures on how to receive this free cable
television service.


Seguro Social refunds
Page 8: The Fort Clayton Finance Office
has received more Seguro Social refund
checks for some local national employees.
The Finance Office is expecting to receive
more refund checks in the next couple of
weeks. If your name is not on the list on
Page 8, please wait and see if it will be on
a subsequent list before calling Finance.


Hostage rescue training
Page 4 and 5: The 118th Airborne
Military Police Company held hostage
rescue training exercises and competi-
tions Tuesday at Corozal West. The ex-
ercises are for Special Reaction Teams
training and simulate real life hostage
rescue situations. Finalists competed to
determine who is the best of the best.


USARSO wants all
aspects of the draw-
down to proceed with
the highest standard
of quality and effi-
ciency by opting to
double the number of
inspectors and
thereby achieve a 100
percent quality
assurance figure.

118th MP Co. holds hostage


story and photos by Charlie McElroy
Tropic Times Staff
The final "enter and clear house" Fire Team competition
of the 118th Military Police Company (Airborne), was held
in Corozal West Tuesday. Three fire teams representing
their respective squadron's best-of-the-best met the enemy
face to face in simulated action.
Enter and clear house exercises are necessary Military
Police training for hostage rescue situations.
"These exercises try to simulate all the known circum-
stances surrounding a hostage situation," says 2nd Lt. Lid
Y. Wolf 3rd Platoon Leader. "We use 9 mm weapons modi-
fied to shoot paint pellets. The result is a realistic simulation
of the kind of hostage situation soldiers might be called
upon to help overcome."
Each fire team in Tuesday's competition was given the
task of entering a house containing several rooms, search-
ing the house, locating and neutralizing the opposing
forces thereby freeing the hostages.
A fire team is comprised of a front security soldier, a
team leader and a rear security soldier. The three soldiers
enter the house in close, single-file formation going from
one room to another until an opposing force is encoun-
tered. When an opposing force is encountered, a triangula-
tion method is employed to out maneuver and overpower
the opposing force, both psychologically and physically.
Once the cue to enter a room is given, the fire team en-
ters with lightning speed, continually advancing and calling
on the opposing force to surrender.
"The safety of the hostages is the primary concern in
these situations," says Wolf. "The opposing force is given
an immediate opportunity to surrender by putting down
their weapons."
The fire teams each entered and cleared the house
within minutes, and the hostages were freed without being
harmed. Members of the opposing force were also soldiers
from 118th Military Police Company (Airborne) and were
veterans of many previous enter-and-clear-house exercises. *
Sgt. John M. Leandro, training-NCO, acted as the ob-
server during the exercises. Following each exercise, each
fire team was briefed on their operational precision. The
brief included feedback from Leandro and the veterans of
the opposing forces. "The exercises were not only compe-
titions but also additional experience for the members of the
fire teams," said Leandro. "This kind of experience builds on
precision."
Fire team A won Tuesday's competition. The team
leader was Sgt. Jacob M. Gonzalez and security soldiers
were Spc. Gregory E. Stout and Spc. Johnathan E. Dean.
"The other six soldiers from teams B and C also demon-
strated exemplary performance," said Leandro. "Team A
was just better than the best."

After entering the house, the fire team proceeds to clear the house room by room.

countered, the triangulation

The soldiers of the 118th Military
Police Battalion Company (Air-
borne) who participated in
Tuesday's exercises and competi-
tion are from the 503rd Military
Police Battalion (Airborne) sta-
tioned at Fort Bragg. The 503rd is
the only Airborne military police
battalion in the U.S. Army. The
118th are on active duty deploy-

in Panama on February 27th.

late real life situations where per-
petrators have taken hostages usu-

. .Special ammo and modified real
weaponry are used to further
simulate reality. In Tuesday's exer-
cises and competition, soldiers
used modified 9 mm automatic
weaponry and 9 mm shell casings
with soft, liquid filled ballistics.

Drawdown brings more business to Relocation Center


story by Carmela Lowe Gobern
Tropic Times Staff
FORT CLAYTON - While many
offices are observed to be closing
during this drawdown period, there is
one office that is still very busy pro-
viding services to customers. This of-
fice is the Army Community Service
Relocation Center, located at Building
200, Fort Clayton.
The Relocation Center is a one-
stop source of information, that was
established in October 1997 to ben-
efit and provide quality services for
USARSO's soldiers, .civilians and
their family members. During this par-
ticular drawdown period, the Reloca-
tion Center has been proven to ease
the stress of the mobile military
lifestyle.
Caroline Hall, the Family Services
coordinator, and her staff provide a
friendly and knowledgeable environ-
ment dedicated to assisting with in-
formation, referrals and relocation
concerns in order to make the transi-
tion process as smooth as possible.
These services are not only for those
departing Panama but also for person-


nel here on TDY and the services in-
clude the following:
*Four computer workstations with
Internet capabilities ideal for re-
searching one's new location, for find-
ing jobs and for resolving issues that
arise during separations.
*Pamphlets, brochures and the Stan-
dard Installation Topic Exchange Sys-
tem.
*Computer software for writing re-
sumes, preparing for job interviews,
and mapping out travel plans.
*Four telephones with DSN/1-800
features for the purpose of contacting
next duty stations.
*DSN fax machine.
+ Photocopier.
*A resource library.
*Individual counseling sessions
A special quarterly activity orga-
nized by the Center was Relocation
Awareness Day, which offered in-
depth assistance to soldiers, civilians
and family members departing Panama.
Everything one needed to know about
going to one's next duty station was
made available during this event. At
Relocation Awareness Day, all per-


sons who entered the Center were fil-
tered through different stations with rep-
resentatives available to answer ques-
tions regarding their move.
Customer usage of the Center peaked
in May with 723 clients. Today, the
Center remains busy providing services
to an average of 25 customers per day.
Another service provided by ACS,
which is located in the basement of the
Relocation Center, is the Lending
Closet. This office furnishes basic
household items on loan to soldiers and
their families and is busier than ever dur-
ing this period lending items such as
dishes, coffee pots, toasters, irons,
ironing boards, cribs, car seats, and high
chairs among other household items.
The Relocation Center is officially
scheduled to close on Aug. 30, and until
that time, customers are encouraged to
take advantage of the facilities, in keep-
ing with USARSO's goal of maintaining
a high quality of life until the end of the
transition period. No appointment is re-
quired and they are open from 7:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
You may contact the Relocation Center
at 288-9268/9235.


Sgt. Paul Bouchard (Tropic Times)

The Fort Clayton Relocation Cen-
ter, located at Building 200, is still
very busy providing services to
customers. With computer work-
stations, DSN telephone lines, fax
machine, copier, a resource library
and more, the Center plays a key
role during this drawdown period.

Take a day trip to Isla Taboga


story and photo by Charlie McElroy
Tropic Times Staff
TABOGA - Looking for a one day adventure? Want
to see some of Panama, but you don't have the time or
the means to ravel far? Isla Taboga is the best one-day
trip there is if you're looking for adventure and an easy,
hassle free means to get there. Plus, the little town of
Taboga is safe and friendly and a beautiful place to
visit.
The Taboga ferry boat makes the daily round-trip,
one hour cruise to the island for about $10. The trip out
there is worth it even if you don't debark. The ferryboat
first passes into the Panama Canal, then goes under the
Bridge of the Americas, past the famous Balboa Yacht
Club and parallels Amador Causeway. From the
Smithsonian Institute's Isla Naos, the ferryboat takes a
bearing of exactly 180 degrees south. Thirty minutes
later and maybe a whale or two, some dolphins, flying
Whether it's the ferryboat ride, the history of
pirates and conquistadors, El Morro Island, the
beautiful beaches, La Vigia, the charming
town of Taboga, or just a yearning to get out
and explore Panama, you'll enjoy a day trip to
Isla Taboga. The beaches are sandy, strewn
with shells, and safe. The beach in front of Ho-
tel Taboga is the most popular (below).


fish and swimming birds, the ship glides gently into the quiet
harbor of Isla Taboga.
Conquistadors made Isla Taboga their Panama headquar-
ters, and Balboa was known to have walked along the
island's sandy beaches. Pizzaro used the island's resources
to equip his expedition to conquer the Incas. Noted pirates
also used Isla Taboga's strategic location to their advan-
tage. There are still treasures to be found. As recently as
March 1997, a treasure of 17th century coins was unearthed
during the construction of the island's new and modem
medical clinic.
The small island just off the shore of Isla Taboga is El
Morro. You can walk there along the sandy strip that is high
and dry at low tide. El Morro is more than just a small island
- it was the home of the British owned Pacific Mail and
Steam Navigation Company in the 19th century. Remnants
of the highly successful works are still visible including 15-
foot anchors weighing well over a ton each that no one has
yet figured out how to remove. There's also an old cemetery
that still has some of the headstones of British sailors who
landed there.
The beaches are safe for children too. The beach in front
of the Taboga Hotel is the most popular probably because
of several watering holes and restaurants. The waters are
clear and refreshing, and the white sand is strewn with
shells and a great place to get some sun.


Colorful frogs can be seen along the well-trod-
den footpath that leads to the top of La Vigia, the
highest point of Isla Taboga.
From this high point, there is a 360-degree view
of the world around you. You hike the road, the
path or ask one of the local cargo drivers to take
you to the top in 15 minutes.
A casual stroll through the maze of intertwin-
ing, flower lined pathways that weave their way
through the provincial town of Taboga is interest-
ing and relaxing.
Taboga is a friendly and safe place to visit, and
many visitors from the mainland and afar have de-
cided to make Taboga a home away from home as
you'll see from the many architectural prize winning
homes along the way.
Isla Taboga has long been the favorite place for
one day R&Rs. In fact, there used to be a military
post at the top of La Vigia.
Whether its the ferryboat ride, the history of pi-
rates and conquistadors, El Morro, the beautiful
beaches, La Vigia, the charming town of Taboga,
or just a strong yearning to get out and explore
Panama, you'll enjoy a day trip to Isla Taboga.
Over nighters are easy too. Hotels have reasonable
rates. Call Argo Tours at 228-4348 for ferryboat
schedules.:

Friendship
by Rachel Herring
Once upon a time there were two dogs. One day the
dogs went to the park. They played on the slide and
the see-saw, but their favorite thing was the merry-go-
round. They played and played.
Then a dog said, "I am hungry and thirsty."
the other dog answered, " Let's go to your house!"
As they started down the road, a little butterfly was
fluttering around them. She wanted a friend. "Hey you
guys, want to play with me?"
"Come along with us to get a'drink and get some man-
goes, and then we will go to the pool," said one dog.
After they were full, they got their suits on and
went swimming. "1 wish I could dive," said Butterfly.
"Well, we can help you here at the pool," said the
dog.
Butterfly was lucky to make such good friends.
They will all play together again. Butterfly flew home
with her friends and dropped them off at their homes.

The exceptionally high standards ofthe U.S. Army South Transportation Division, the office that actually handles the endless details and intricate ins and outs of your PCS move, has everything under control.

"Experience is paramount to success in this business," says Myke. The USARSO Transportation Division has gained lots of experience over the decades. Their offices occupy nearly half ofthe second floor ofBuilding 519. Everyone knows about the packing and shipping of personal property, especially during the past few months.

4 Tropic Times July 16, 1999 118th MP Co. holds hostage story and photos by Charlie McElroy Tropic Times Staff The final "enter and clear house" Fire Team competition of the 118th Military Police Company (Airborne), was held in Corozal West Tuesday. Three fire teams representing their respective squadron's best-of-the-best met the enemy face to face in simulated action. Enter and clear house exercises are necessary Military Police training for hostage rescue situations. "These exercises try to simulate all the known circumstances surrounding a hostage situation," says 2nd Lt. Lid Y. WoWf 3rd Platoon Leader. "We use 9 mm weapons modifled to shoot paint pellets. The result is a realistic simulation of the kind of hostage situation soldiers might be called upon to help overcome." Each fire team in Tuesday's competition was given the task of entering a house containing several rooms, searching the house, locating and neutralizing the opposing forces thereby freeing the hostages. A fire team is comprised of a front security soldier, a team leader and a rear security soldier. The three soldiers enter the house in close, single-file formation going from one room to another until an opposing force is encountered. When an opposing force is encountered, a triangulation method is employed to out maneuver and overpower the opposing force, both psychologically and physically. Once the cue to enter a room is given, the fire team enI ters with lightning speed, continually advancing and calling on the opposing force to surrender. "The safety of the hostages is the primary concern in these situations," says Wolf. "The opposing force is given an immediate opportunity to surrender by putting down their weapons. The fire teams each entered and cleared the house within minutes, and the hostages were freed without being harmed. Members of the opposing force were also soldiers from 118th Military Police Company (Airborne) and were veterans of many previous enter-and-clear-house exercises. Sgt. John M. Leandro, training-NCO, acted as the observer during the exercises. Following each exercise, each fire team was briefed on their operational precision. The brief included feedback from Leandro and the veterans of the opposing forces. "The exercises were not only competitions but also additional experience for the members of the fire teams," said Leandro. "This kind of experience builds on precision." Fire team A won Tuesday's competition. The team leader was Sgt. Jacob M. Gonzalez and security soldiers were Spc. Gregory E. Stout and Spc. Johnathan E. Dean. "The other six soldiers from teams B and C also demonstrated exemplary performance," said Leandro. "Team A was just better than the best." After entering the house, the fire team proceeds to clear the house room by room. A fire team is comprised of a front security soldier, a team leader and a rear security soldier. The three soldiers enter the house in close, single-file formation going from one room to another until an opposing force is encountered. When an opposing force is encountered, the triangulation method is employed to out maneuver and overpower the opposing force, both psychologically and physically. The soldiers of the 118th Military Police Battalion Company (Airborne) who participated In Tuesday's exercises and competition are from the 503rd Military Police Battalion (Airborne) stationed at Fort Bragg. The 503rd is the only Airborne military police battalion in the U.S. Army. The 118th are on active duty deployment assigned to Joint Task Force Bravo, Fort Clayton. They arrived in Panama on February 27th. Hostage rescue exercises simulate real life situations where perpetrators have taken hostages usually for the purpose of negotiation. Special ammo and modified real weaponry are used to further simulate reality. In Tuesday's exercises and competition, soldiers used modified 9 mm automatic weaponry and 9 mm shell casings with soft, liquid filled ballistics.

Friendship by Rachel Herring Freddie Wyman, 8 Once upon a time there were two dogs. One day the dogs went to the park. They played on the slide and the see-saw, but their favorite thing was the merry-goround. They played and played. Then a dog said, "I am hungry and thirsty." the other dog answered, Let's go to your house!" As they started down the road, a little butterfly was fluttering around them. She wanted a friend. "Hey you guys, want to play with me?" "Come along with us to get a'drink and get some mangoes, and then we will go to the pool," said one dog. After they were full, they got their suits on and went swimming. "I wish I could dive,'' said Butterfly. L"Well, we can help you here at the pool," said the Miguel Capriles, 10 dg. Mg pis1 Butterfly was lucky to make such good friends. They will all play together again. Butterfly flew home Veronica Brown with her friends and dropped them off at their homes. VeoncaBrw
