  • Every year, during the holiday season, the
    holiday lights and decorations are hung for
    display. The bright colored lights lend
    themselves to the festive spirit of the Holiday
    season. We must, however, remember to conserve
    our electrical energy. An excellent way to
    conserve this valuable energy is to turn our
    decorative lights on at dusk and off at around
    2200. Turning the lights off at this hour serves
    a two-fold purpose. One, it conserves
    electricity and two, reduces the chance of a
    safety hazard arising due to unattended
    electrical circuits outside of quarters. It is
    sad but true that many people die every year at
    this time due to electrical fires and shock.
  • Please adhere to the following guidelines when
    decorating the outside of your quarters during
    this holiday season
  • a. Never walk on or put anything on your roof or
    the second floor ledges of the townhouses.
  • b. Do not insert nails, screws or other hardware
    into siding, trim or stucco of the house, gutters
    or eaves.
  • c. Use only outdoor rated lights.
  • d. Use only Heavy Duty certified extension cords.
  • e. To attach lights, use S-Clips or similar
    inexpensive, non-destructive clips.
  • f. Spraying of "snow" or use of water-soluble
    paints is authorized on windows only.
  • Decorative holiday lights should not be left on
    over night and should be turned off during
  • hours.
  • Please refrain from installing, planting or
    placing decorations in the common ground areas
  • contractors maintain the grounds.

NAVSUP Announces 2008 Holiday Season Mailing
Dates The Naval Supply Systems Command's
(NAVSUP) Postal Policy Division notes it is not
too early to mail your 2008 holiday cards,
letters, and packages. To ensure delivery by
December 25, it is recommended that your holiday
items be mailed by the dates listed below.
For military mail addressed to APO/FPO addresses

For military mail from APO and FPO addresses
Express Mail Military Service (EMMS) is available
from selected military post offices. If mailing
to an APO/FPO address check with your local post
office to determine if this service is available.
Parcel Airlift Mail (PAL) is a service that
provides air transportation for parcels on a
space-available basis. It is available for
Parcel Post items not exceeding 30 pounds in
weight or 60 inches in length and girth combined.
The applicable PAL fee must be paid in addition
to the regular surface rate of postage for each
addressed piece sent by PAL service. Space
Available Mail (SAM) refers to parcels mailed to
APO/FPO addresses at parcel post rates that are
first transported domestically by surface and
then to overseas destinations by air on a space
available basis. The maximum weight and size
limits are 15 pounds and 60 inches in length and
girth combined. From overseas locations, items
mailed at Parcel Post rates are sent to CONUS by
air on a space available basis. The maximum
weight and size limit are 70 pounds and 130
inches in length and girth combined. It is also
recommended that customers check with their local
civilian or military post office for information
on size restrictions and possible need for
customs declaration forms. Additionally,
customers are advised that certain mail
restrictions apply and some items are
non-mailable. Examples are switchblade knives,
pornography, controlled substances, and explosive
or incendiary devices. If in doubt as to what
can or cannot be sent through the mail, contact
your local post office or military post
office. As a final note, customers are cautioned
that packages must not be mailed in boxes that
have markings related to any type of hazardous
material, such as bleach, alcohol, or cleaning
fluids. Parcels found by the U.S. Postal Service
with such markings or labels on the outside of
the box will not be processed. Instead, they
will be handled as "non-mailable matter,"
regardless of the contents or what is listed on
the U.S. Customs form. NAVSUP's primary mission
is to provide U.S. naval forces with quality
supplies and services. With headquarters in
Mechanicsburg, PA, and employing a worldwide
workforce of more than 24,000 military and
civilian personnel, NAVSUP oversees logistics
programs in the areas of supply operations,
conventional ordnance, contracting, resale, fuel,
transportation, and security assistance. In
addition, NAVSUP is responsible for quality of
life issues for our naval forces, including food
service, postal services, Navy Exchanges, and
movement of household goods.
Valued Guests Beginning October 1st we are
anticipating a rate increase due to increased
costs and decreased appropriated fund support
throughout the Japan Region. Additionally we are
diligently working to improve our services to
better meet your needs, today and tomorrow.
These include free high speed internet access,
new flat screen TVs, new comfortable beds and
implementing a plan to update our furnishings and
facilities. Our rates are expected to change as
listed below to ensure a breakeven financial plan
(e.g., not for profit). These rates are for all
current, in-house and arriving guests regardless
of the rate at time of reservation. The rates
are still being finalized, however, we recommend
any and all guests to plan accordingly. Once
rates are validated we will provide additional
notification. NGIS Management
