U.S. Naval ship, currently supporting Joint Interagency Task Force South (JITF) counter narcotics operations in the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) area of responsibility visited Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Mar. 27-30. The USS Elrod (FFG 55), an Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate, was in port for fuel, water and re-supply services. The crew was also provided opportunities to enjoy Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) activities and shop at the Navy Exchange. “Elrod is deployed to the Fourth Fleet area in support of Operation Martillo, a joint and inter-agency effort to stem the flow of drugs through the littorals of the Caribbean,” said USS Elrod Commanding Officer, Cdr. John Callaway. “Visiting Guantanamo Bay is a great opportunity for crew rest and logistics in a port with superb MWR facilities. We appreciate the hospitality and tremendous support available here.”
Operation Martillo (Spanish for ‘Hammer’) is a U.S., European, and Western Hemisphere partner nation effort targeting illicit trafficking routes in coastal waters along the Central American isthmus. U.S. military participation is being led by JIATF South, a component of SOUTHCOM. Operation Martillo is a component of the U.S. government’s coordinated interagency regional security strategy in support of the White House Strategy to Combat Transnational Organized Crime and the U.S. Central America Regional Security Initiative. Fourteen countries are participating: Canada, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States. JIATF is a multiservice, multiagency national task force which conducts counter illicit trafficking operations, intelligence fusion and multi-sensor correlation to detect, monitor, and handoff suspected illicit trafficking targets; promotes security cooperation and coordinates country team and partner nation initiatives in order to defeat the flow of illicit traffic.

GTMO’s Red Cross Host Ridgeline Hike MC2(SW/AW) Justin Ailes Gazette Editor
merican Red Cross station personnel and volunteers at Naval Station Guantanmo Bay Cuba, in coordination with Joint Task Force GTMO’s 170th Military Police Battallion held a community hike, Mar. 24. The three mile hiking event, held at the base’s Ridgeline Trail and was a little over three miles, provided community members an opportunity to show their support for Red Cross services and to recognize March as American Red Cross Month. “The hike also introduced many of the secondary trails, in the Ridgeline trail system to members of the community,” said event co-organizer Army Sgt. Dora Brock.
The 170th formed a group called the Trail Blazers and took the lead in clearing and cleaning the trail. “The group has collectively contributed approximately 300 volunteer hours cleaning and maintaining the trails,” Brock said. More than 70 base residents participated in the hike, with approximately 50 volunteers providing water throughout the course and serving as trail safeties. “We wouldn’t have been able to host this event without the volunteer and community support, and the assistance of event coorganizer Army Sgt. 1st Class James Scott,” said Brock. “The feedback we’ve received from the hike was that the participants enjoyed the course and had a great time hiking through some challenging trails.”

One of the scheduled activities is a play VOL. 69 • NO. 12 COMMANDING OFFICER EXECUTIVE OFFICER COMMAND MASTER CHIEF
called “Sex Signals.” Sex Signals is a sexual assault prevention presentation that incorporates improvisational comedy, education, and audience interaction.

Navy Concludes Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2012 U.S. Fleet Forces Public Affairs
he Navy wrapped up its largest annual security exercise today after a week of training designed to test the service’s ability to respond to nation-wide threats to its installations, units, personnel and families. The exercise, known as Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield (SC-CS) 2012, was led by Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) and began March 19. “Our intent was to accurately simulate real-world conditions, and to assess how our forces operate in that environment,” said Adm. John C. Harvey Jr., commander of USFF. “Overall, it was a resounding success and a large part of that can be attributed to the lessons we’ve learned from previous years.” One of the takeaways from last year’s exercise was that sudden increases in security could have a major impact on traffic caused by personnel entering and exiting local bases under increased scrutiny. “Whenever you have Sailors and other citizens in a gridlocked situation outside of a Navy base, they’re in an environment where they’re vulnerable,” said Rear Adm. Phil Davidson, USFF’s director for operations and intelligence. “We opened up our lines of communication and worked with state and local officials to ensure everyone - both service members and local residents - understood how base access could be af-
fected and the potential for delays on adjacent highways and roads near naval installations. We also took many important steps to reduce the likelihood of gridlock.” “I am very impressed with the professionalism and support our Navy received from our civil partners around the country during this exercise,” said Adm. Harvey. “We began reaching out to state, local and tribal officials weeks ago to make sure everyone that might be affected by the exercise understood our intentions and make them aware of how we could work together to avoid problems. They really came through and did a superb job!” The two exercises, each with a distinct focus, occurred simultaneously and trained and tested security force personnel throughout a number of force-protection scenarios. These scenarios ranged from identifying surveillance to large-scale, multifaceted threats originating from the sea and air. Security forces were assessed on their response to the emerging threats. Information was collected throughout this year’s exercises and will be assessed to identify tactics, techniques and procedures that can be improved going forward. Exercise SC/CS 2012 was not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.

The Key to Happiness Chaplain Tung Tran NS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Chapel Services
here once was a tailor who was old and dying and called his brothers to his bedside. They talked and prayed together. At last the dying man said, “I want my key to heaven.” He was brought a prayer book entitled “The Key to Heaven,” but the dying man shook his head. They brought him a crucifix and other religious articles, but they were not what he wanted. They all tried in vain to guess what the man had in his mind. What could his key to heaven be? Perhaps such an unusual request
was the result of his delirium. Suddenly one of the brothers, guessing what the dying man was thinking about, went to get the needle with which he worked with for so many years. How his eyes gleamed and how graceful his celestial smile. He took the needle with his fingers and murmured almost inaudibly: “The two of us have worked hard together old friend, but I devoted my work to God’s glory. With my eyes fixed on eternity, and now that the thread of my life is broken, you will be for me, blessed needle, my key to the gates of Heaven.” If it’s hard to understand heaven or if one does not believe in heaven, how about happiness? Work hard, stay focused on what’s important. That may be the key to happiness and good health if not heaven itself. GTMO good health and happiness to all.
Guantanamo Bay’s MOC Honors Women’s History Month MC2(SW/AW) Justin Ailes Gazette Editor
he Multi-Cultural Observance Committee at Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay hosted the Women’s History celebration at the installation’s chapel, Mar. 27. The Women’s History celebration was held to remember and honor generations of women who pioneered advances in civilian and military life, while responding to gender conflict and gender segregation. “During Women’s History Month, we recognize that the pioneering legacy of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers is revealed not only in our history books but also in our lives at Guantanamo Bay and the free choices we make every day,” said Carol Leaphart, NS Guantanamo Bay Multi-Cultural Observance Committee Co-Chairperson. “This great legacy is also in the fierce determination and limitless potential of our daughters and granddaughters. In our generation we must stand and defend the dream of freedom and justice for all genders.”
The event featured educational skits and performances from the installation’s W.T. Sampson school students, readings from female civilian and service members in the community, and a speech from keynote speaker Charlotte GeorgeForeman, outlining the important roles women have served throughout history. George-Foreman worked full time for the Department of Defense (DoD) in various billets, but mostly as an educator with DoD schools for more than 29 years. Presently she is a full time secondary teacher at W.T. Sampson and has taught at the installation for the past 13 years. “Women’s History Month is about celebrating women who taught us how to move and make progress in the midst of adversity and difficulty; how to go beyond the gender borders,” said Leaphart. “We are celebrating women who taught us how to walk fearlessly, beyond the limitation, beyond the restrictions and beyond the boundaries imposed by the traditions of society. In the

face of perilous times, courageous women of history like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Soujoror Truth, Eleanor Roosevelt, Condoleezza Rice, and Michelle Obama, stood up against the storm winds of difficulties and adversities to shatter glass ceilings and open doorways of opportunities for all women, of every color and every creed, to be educated and develop to become all that they dream to be.” Proclamation 8780, signed Mar. 1 by President Barack Obama recognizes March as Women’s History Month and states, “As Americans, ours is a legacy of bold independence and passionate belief in fairness and justice for all. For generations, this intrepid spirit has driven women pioneers to challenge injustices and shatter ceilings in pursuit of full and enduring equality. During Women’s History Month, we commemorate their struggles, celebrate centuries of progress, and reaffirm our steadfast commitment to the rights, security, and dignity of women in America and around the world.”

Corpsmen Detailers Visit U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay Stacey Byington USNH Public Affairs Officer
n an effort to see the “real Guantanamo Bay,” two Hospital Corpsmen detailers and a member of the placement team traveled from Millington, Tenn., to visit U.S. Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay (USNH GTMO), March 20-21. The visit was intended to give the detailers a better sense of the requirements of the command, as well as give Sailors an opportunity to talk to their detailers face-to-face. Leading the team was HMCM (SW/AW/FMF) Lucas Van Emelen, lead detailer for Navy Corpsmen. He was accompanied by HMC(SW/FMF) Vincent Soto, the HM “A” and “C” schools detailer, and HM1(FMF/SW) John Kitchen, a member of the enlisted placement team. “Our detailer visit was a huge success,” said HMCM Betty Watson, USNH GTMO’s Command Master Chief. “To have them come here and actually experience GTMO helps them understand issues and requirements here as they attempt to fill our billets.” Watson said that the hospital’s Corpsmen had an opportunity to learn about the different billets available to them and the process for selecting people for those billets. “Our Sailors know they matter, and most of those who needed orders received them,” added Watson. HM2 Latoya Hooper works in the hospital’s Pharmacy and

said her interaction with the detailers was very beneficial. “My visit with the detailer was great,” said Hooper. “I was very impressed by Chief Soto, and the level of knowledge he possessed with regards to the submission of my IDC School (Independent Duty Corpsman) request package. I was pointed in the right direction very quickly, and by the time my session was over, I knew exactly what I needed to do. The three Millington visitors were impressed with the quality of GTMO Corpsmen and the professionalism everyone displayed. “We are working diligently to understand the needs here,” said Van Emelen. “It has been an eye-opening experience. It’s a beautiful place.” One of the issues currently challenging the command is the fact that Fed/Fire does not currently operate ambulance services for the community. Corpsmen who work in the hospital’s Emergency Room need to be certified emergency medical technicians (EMT), and must qualify to drive the hospital’s ambulances. “We do it all,” said CAPT Barth Merrill, USNH GTMO Executive Officer. “GMTO is one of those places where junior Corpsmen can get training in areas that they might not get in other assignments.” A good percentage of the command’s enlisted Sailors are junior Corpsmen on their first assignment out of “A” school. In addition, many Corpsmen who come to Guantanamo Bay are single or arrive unaccompanied without their families, which means shorter tour lengths. Because of this, staff turnover is a challenge. In a brief to hospital leadership, the detailers said that public perception of GTMO tends to influence Sailors who might otherwise consider orders to the hospital. “One of the things we need to do is change the mindset of how Guantanamo Bay is perceived,” said Soto. “When I mention GTMO to Corpsmen, they tend to react negatively. We need to change that image.” What many Corpsmen and other enlisted personnel who could get orders to GTMO don’t realize is that there is much more to the base than the mainstream media portrays. The base has almost 6,000 residents, and hospital personnel interact with almost all of them. The detention center is several miles away from where most people live and work on the base. During off-duty hours most people go fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, and snorkeling. There is also a DoDDS school system for kindergarten through 12th grades. “GTMO is a great place to come for those with families,” said Merrill. “If Corpsmen want leadership and education opportunities, then they should consider orders to GTMO.”
Installation weather forecaster “The Weatherman” Richard Walker discusses GTMO’s weather station initiatives, weather forecast procedures, hurricane tracking, and overall career objectives involved with weather reporting to more than 50 W.T. Sampson students in the high school library, Mar. 28. Middle school Science teacher Beverly Zwiebel arranged for Walker to provide an informative presentation to students interesed in potentially exploring a career in weather reporting.

Guantanamo’s CYP Host Fourth Annual Fashion Show MC2(SW/AW) Justin Ailes Gazette Editor
he Child and Youth Programs (CYP) at Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, hosted their fourth annual fashion show at the installation’s Windjammer ballroom, Mar. 24. The event was held to showcase the talents of the installation’s youth performers, exhibit clothing from numerous cultures, and offer an entertaining venue for community members and their families. “This was a great approach in getting the community to work and have fun together,” said Regina Peck, NS Guantanamo Bay’s CYP Program Lead. “It really showed that if we put our hands and heart together we can accomplish great things. This event allowed the children an opportunity to showcase many of their talents and creativity.” Community members ranging from infants to adults displayed casual, sport, cultural, and formal
wear as they walked the run-way modeling today’s fashions. “Several of the children have participated in the CYP fashion show before and were looking forward to doing it again this year,” said Peck. “They turned it up a notch this year. They all appeared to enjoy performing in the show and they didn’t seem to be nervous at all.” The CYP displayed some of their many talents and experiences during the show, according to Peck. “The CYP staff played as role models and mentors for the children in our community,” said Peck. “The child and youth program is designed to reach out to the community with all types of activities and events.” NS Guantanamo Bay’s W.T. Sampson elementary/high school National Honor Society, Youth Sponsorship Program Committee, Navy Exchange, Naval Station Hospital, Marine Corps Security Force Company (MCSFCO) Marines and Windjammer staff were among the many supporters of the fashion show.
Youth Models (L-R) Azailey Torre (5 yrs. old), Selena Murcin (15 yrs. old), Rian Pagtakhan (7 yrs. old) showcase youth apparel during the CYP’s fourth annual fashion show at the Windjammer ballroom, Mar. 24.
