Visitors to U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay may dine at the Naval Station dining facilities. These include Naval Station galleys, fast food outlets, restaurants, snack bars and a coffee shop. The Naval Station’s Commissary (grocery store) and Exchange (general merchandise) are also available for military commissions participants and attendees. The Naval Station website contains more detailed information.
The Gold Hill Galley near the Navy Exchange (NEX) at Guantanamo Bay will be closed for approximately 1 month beginning Dec. 26, 2012, for repairs. While the Galley is closed, military meal card holders will be served lunch and dinner at the Windjammer in the room to the right as you enter building 1673 (normally used for Bingo and other events). Paying customers may eat lunch and dinner at the Windjammer as usual.
Media representatives who cannot view the proceedings from the courtroom—or who do not wish to—may watch the proceedings from the Media Center. Located near the ELC, the Media Center offers computer and telephone support for media members. The audio and video feeds from both courtrooms are transmitted to the Media Center via a closed circuit television feed and played on large-screen televisions. There is also a tent nearby for television reporting, a briefing room for official press briefings and restrooms.
