    My name is Allen Robinson and I am to be stationed at the Naval Base Guantanamo Bay soon. I am a journalist serving with the United States Army. I understand the Cuban Population probably has some questions regarding the combatants who are held on the base.
    I would like to assist in providing an open dialogue with the Cuban press if this is possible.
    I believe that journalist gain strength through truth, and I would like to facilitate the truth.
    Let us, you and I forget politics and try to reveal truth.
    Thank you for reading,
    1st Lt. Allen Robinson
    Executive Officer
