U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is essential to Maritime Strategy and serves as a cornerstone of U.S. military operations
in the U.S. 4th Fleet Area of Responsibility.

The Naval Station aims to enhance the ability of vessels from the U.S. military and allied forces to operate in the Caribbean by providing fuel, supplies and vital logistical support for their operational commitments.

The base also participates in and directly supports the Department of Homeland Security in U.S. migrant operations in order to help care for displaced migrants from the surrounding area, effectively helping control the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.

GTMO is the oldest overseas U.S. Naval base and is the only base located in a country with which the U.S. does not maintain diplomatic relations.

Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, serves as the logistical hub for military and merchant vessels operating in the
United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) area of responsibility.

Don, I've never been to GITMO only my son has for refueling and etc... My understanding is it's such a super secured place that All personnel not assigned must have permission of the Commander to visit Naval Station Guantanamo Bay.

So my best suggestion would be to contact your sailor directly...
