LODGING PROFILE:
Guantanamo Bay NGIS —
Lodging Pearl of the Antilles

NS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is the oldest Navy base outside the continental United States (OCONUS), and the only one in a country that does not enjoy an open political relationship with the U.S.

Located in the Oriente (East) Province on the southeast corner of Cuba, the base is about 400 air miles from Miami, Fla. In February 1903, the U.S. leased 45 square miles of land and water at Guantanamo Bay for use as a coaling (fueling) station.

The Navy lodging operation at Guantanamo Bay has been in operation for more than 40 years. Formerly known as visitors quarters and transient housing, the lodging operation changed its name to Navy Gateway Inns and Suites (NGIS) in 2007.

HOLIDAY BEVERAGES:
'Tis the Season For Beverages

The holiday season is right around the corner, which means that family and friends will get together during this truly festive time to share a few laughs, exchange gifts, sing classic holiday tunes and spread good cheer.

No holiday gathering, whether in the civilian or military world, is complete without seasonal beverages — alcoholic and nonalcoholic, hot and cold. In the military, clubs, Class Six and package stores will be stocked with a variety of holiday-themed beverages for patrons to purchase and enjoy with their families and friends.

Military Club & Hospitality takes a look at some of the seasonal beverages that will be popular on installations world-wide during the holidays.
