NMCB 5 takes over from NMCB 133, projects include construction of a 440-meter track at the high school


By JOSE J.N. Gaona

The men in the uniforms are changing but the "can do" spirit of the Seabees remains the same as Naval
Mobile Construction Battalion 5 replaces the departing NMCB 133.
Forty-four members of a 105-man local detachment of NMCB 5, homeported in Port Hueneme, Calif., arrived May 5 with the rest of the detachment expected to arrive Tuesday.
The men already here are part of an advance party of key personnel
who are meeting with key personnel from NMCB 133 in order to make the transition between detachments smoother.
"NMCB 133 had an extremely successful deployment," Lt. Bruce Dammeier, Officer in Charge of the local detachment, said. "This is probably the smoothest transition I've been involved with.
"There are about 600 men in the main body of the battalion," Dammeier explained. "The largest group is working in Puerto Rico and there are groups smaller than us working in other places," he said.
The criteria used in determining which individuals are assigned to
each location are experience and skills needed to complete the projects the detachment is tasked with. "One of the major projects we have
includes the completion of Pier Charlie, in which we will be replacing the inboard fender system," Dammeier said. NMCB 133 replaced the
outboard fender system on the pier during their deployment. "We will
also be installing a sewer line for the Navy Exchange Mall," he said.
Other projects NMCB 5 is tasked with include: the installation of
various utility systems; the reha-

bilitation of the Port Control building and the SIMA administration building; construction of a new Public Works Department operations duty
building; drainage work behind the Windjammer Club; the construction of
a 440-meter track at the high school; the construction of a new guard tower to replace Tower 3 on
Leeward; and finishing the racquetball courts at Marine Site.

"We are going to start a good chunk of the projects right off the bat," Dammeier said, "but the most important thing is simply to get the job done."


To ensure that the projects are
completed on schedule, NMCB 5 will work many six-day weeks. "We will probably have about one or two Saturday's off a month," Dammeier said in order to complete all the projects.

Nevertheless, Dammeier says his group is looking forward to its tour
here. "We are very excited to be here and we are eager to help Guantanamo Bay," he said.
"We look forward to becoming involved with every aspect of the
community and becoming a part of daily Guantanamo Bay life."


Science fair reveals skeletons and erupting volcanoes


By JOSA Joel Parks

The multi-purpose room at the W.T. Sampson Elementary School was filled with animal skeletons, seashells and
erupting volcanoes, Friday, May 15, as the students and teachers presented the science fair.
Children in grades one through six
participated, and all classes were represented.
"Some of the younger children chose to work in groups," Katherine Rohe, a sixth-grade teacher, explained.
"The older children, however, were encouraged to perform their own experiments.
"Some people expressed the idea of
turning the science fair into a competition," Rohe added, "but the main purpose of the projects is to teach the children to use the scientific method and to keep records, and that is more important than a competition."
Amy Frank, a sixth-grade student, built a model showing the principles involved in desalinization.
"First, the salt water is boiled. The steam is then forced through a tube into another tank. The water in the tank is then treated for other impurities," Frank explained.
According to Beverly Rasmussen, the assistant principal, the science
fair has been scheduled since November, and the science committee has been meeting since January.
"I have to give the teachers in
the committee all the credit for getting this project off the
ground," she explained.
"The children have been working very hard on their projects, and the results of the hours of research and hard work show in something like this."

Iraqi missile hits USS Stark, 28 dead


By The Associated Press

The Pentagon has confirmed a total of 28 United States Navy sailors are dead and 21 others injured after a missile attack by Iraqi planes on the USS Stark (FFG 31) in the Persian Gulf.
The latest news reports say that fires aboard the guided missile frigate are now under control, though not completely extinguished, and the
ship is proceeding slowly under its own power into the port of Bahrain.
h tark, with a crew of approximatel , waspatrolling in int-.r
la tiaal waters roughly 85 miles
northeast of Bahrain Sunday night when it was struck by at least one and possibly two Iraqi French-built Exocet missiles. A hole at least 10


feet long was ripped in the ship's port side. Pentagon officials are calling the attack, the first ever on a United States military vessel during the Persian Gulf war, a case of mistaken identity. Secretary of State George Shultz says the United States regards the attack with "grave seriousness" and has demanded a "full accounting" from Iraq. The White House points out that Iraq still has not accepted responsibility for the attack.

A U. S. Air Force plane from Frankfurt, West Germany, loaded with medical teams and supplies, is on
its way to the Gulf area to pick up injured sailors, but it is not yet certain where the injured will be
taken.

Smoke rises, is real killer in home fires


By James Derstine NAVSTA Fire Chief


Most people have a natural fear of fires and burns, but feel relatively safe in
smoke. The NAVSTA Fire
Department warns that smoke is the real killer in a fire.
About eight of every 10 fire deaths are due to breathing poisonous smoke and gases. Some victims never see the flames.
Since smoke is lighter than air, it rises. In a building,
will go to the ceiling lst and then come back
down. It will wind up stairs and down hallways. To prevent smoke inhalation, get low and


go. Crawl to the nearest exit
as quickly as possible. Once out, stay out.

Although you can't see it, smoke is filled with toxic gases. Plastics in particular
give off a highly poisonous gas when burned. Since most
homes have a large amount of plastic furnishings, these fires can be deadly. In addition, smoke contains carbon monoxide, a tasteless, odorless gas that causes
confusion, reduced mental capacity and eventually death. It is important to stay low to avoid breathing a large amount of these
poisons.


It is also important to install and maintain smoke detectors to provide an early warning to fire and smoke.
Exposure to smoke for even a few seconds or minutes can be
fatal. Smoke detectors give you the extra edge you need to escape safely. Every family should have a home fire escape plan which includes the use of smoke detectors and a knowledge to stay low and go. Even young children can be taught to respond properly.
No matter where a fire is, in a home, a shopping center, a hotel, an office, a church,
or wherever, the response is the same -- stay low and go.

Guantanamo Gazette Vol. 43 -No. 95 -U.S. Navy's only shore-based daily newspaper -Monday, May 18, 1987 N E Bay News Guantanamo Bay history On this day in Guantanamo Bay history, May 18, 1974, the International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) Office opened, and for the first time Guantanamo Bay had direct communication with the rest of the world. A high frequency transmission system was provided by the commerciallyoperated All-American Cable and Radio, a subsidary of ITT. The system enabled residents to make overseas calls from their home phones, and for visiting fleet sailors to make calls from the phones at the ITT Office. Cuban committee meeting A Cuban committee meeting will be held on Friday, May 29, at 2:30 p.m., in the COMNAVBASE conference room.

Gaona The men in the uniforms are changing but the "can do" spirit of the Seabees remains the same as Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 5 replaces the departing NMCB 133. Forty-four members of a 105-man local detachment of NMCB 5, homeported in Port Hueneme, Calif., arrived May 5 with the rest of the detachment expected to arrive Tuesday. The men already here are part of an advance party of key personnel who are meeting with key personnel from NMCB 133 in order to make the transition between detachments smoother. "NMCB 133 had an extremely successful deployment," Lt. Bruce Dammeier, Officer in Charge of the local detachment, said. "This is probably the smoothest transition I've been involved with. "There are about 600 men in the main body of the battalion," Dammeier explained. "The largest group is working in Puerto Rico and there are groups smaller than us working in other places," he said. The criteria used in determining which individuals are assigned to each location are experience and skills needed to complete the projects the detachment is tasked with. "One of the major projects we have includes the completion of Pier Charlie, in which we will be replacing the inboard fender system," Dammeier said. NMCB 133 replaced the outboard fender system on the pier during their deployment. "We will also be installing a sewer line for the Navy Exchange Mall," he said. Other projects NMCB 5 is tasked with include: the installation of various utility systems; the reha,New Battalion -E03 Phillip Cuzzetto (left) and EA2 George Gagan paint over the NMCB 133 sign at Seabee headquarters. (Photo by JOSN J.M. Gaona) bilitation of the Port Control building and the SIMA administration building; construction of a new Public Works Department operations duty building; drainage work behind the Windjammer Club; the construction of a 440-meter track at the high school; the construction of a new guard tower to replace Tower 3 on Leeward; and finishing the racquetball courts at Marine Site. "We are going to start a good chunk of the projects right off the bat," Dammeier said, "but the most important thing is simply to get the job done." To ensure that the projects are completed on schedule, NMCB 5 will work many six-day weeks. "We will probably have about one or two Saturday's off a month," Dammeier said in order to complete all the projects. Nevertheless, Dammeier says his group is looking forward to its tour here. "We are very excited to be here and we are eager to help Guantanamo Bay," he said. "We look forward to becoming involved with every aspect of the community and becoming a part of daily Guantanamo Bay life." Science fair reveals skeletons and erupting volcanoes By JOSA Joel Parks The multi-purpose room at the W.T. Sampson Elementary School was filled with animal skeletons, seashells and erupting volcanoes, Friday, May 15, as the students and teachers presented the science fair. Children in grades one through six participated, and all classes were represented. "Some of the younger children chose to work in groups," Katherine Rohe, a sixth-grade teacher, explained. "The older children, however, were encouraged to perform their own experiments. "Some people expressed the idea of turning the science fair into a competition," Rohe added, "but the main purpose of the projects is to teach the children to use the scientific method and to keep records, and that is more important than a competition." Amy Frank, a sixth-grade student, built a model showing the principles involved in desalinization. "First, the salt water is boiled. The steam is then forced through a tube into another tank. The water in the tank is then treated for other impurities," Frank explained. According to Beverly Rasmussen, the assistant principal, the science fair has been scheduled since November, and the science committee has been meeting since January. "I have to give the teachers in the committee all the credit for getting this project off the ground," she explained. "The children have been working very hard on their projects, and the results of the hours of research and hard work show in something like this." Science Fair -Elementary school students examine one of the nature projects at the table sponsored by Ruth Hepperle's 3rd grade class. (Photo by JOSA Joel Parks) Iraqi missile hits USS Stark, 28 dead By The Associated Press The Pentagon has confirmed a total of 28 United States Navy sailors are dead and 21 others injured after a missile attack by Iraqi planes on the USS Stark (FFG 31) in the Persian Gulf. The latest news reports say that fires aboard the guided missile frigate are now under control, though not completely extinguished, and the ship is proceeding slowly under its own power into the port of Bahrain. h tark, with a crew of approximatel was patrollin in int hatioa waters roughly 5 miles northeast of Bahrain Sunday night when it was struck by at least one and possibly two Iraqi French-built Exocet missiles. A hole at least 10 feet long was ripped in the ship's port side. Pentagon officials are calling the attack, the first ever on a United States military vessel during the Persian Gulf war, a case of mistaken identity. Secretary of State George Shultz says the United States regards the attack with "grave seriousness" and has demanded a "full accounting" from Iraq. The White House points out that Iraq still has not accepted responsibility for the attack. A U.S. Air Force plane from Frankfurt, West Germany, loaded with medical teams and supplies, is on its way to the Gulf area to pick up injured sailors, but it is not yet certain where the injured will be taken.

Smoke rises, is real killer in home fires By James Derstine go. Crawl to the nearest exit NAVSTA Fire Chief as quickly as possible. Once out, stay out. Most people have a natural fear of fires and burns, but feel relatively safe in smoke. The NAVSTA Fire Department warns that smoke is the real killer in a fire. About eight of every 10 fire deaths are due to breathing poisonous smoke and gases. Some victims never see the flames. Since smoke is lighter than air, it rises. In a building, Will go to the ceiling st and then come back down. It will wind up stairs and down hallways. To prevent smoke inhalation, get low and Although you can't see it, smoke is filled with toxic gases. Plastics in particular give off a highly poisonous gas when burned. Since most homes have a large amount of plastic furnishings, these fires can be deadly. In addition, smoke contains carbon monoxide, a tasteless, odorless gas that causes confusion, reduced mental capacity and eventually death. It is important to stay low to avoid breathing a large amount of these poisons. It is also important to install and maintain smoke detectors to provide an early warning to fire and smoke. Exposure to smoke for even a few seconds or minutes can be fatal. Smoke detectors give you the extra edge you need to escape safely. Every family should have a home fire escape plan which includes the use of smoke detectors and a knowledge to stay low and go. Even young children can be taught to respond properly. No matter where a fire is, in a home, a shopping center, a hotel, an office, a church, or wherever, the response is the same -stay low and go. Ombudsman Presentation -Coast Guard Cndr.
