Gen. Joseph A. Smith Director of U.S. Army SafetyToday, the Army is involved in military actions as never before and is transforming itself to ful ll those missions and other missions required in the new century. Army leaders are complementing the old, traditional methods that have been used since the beginning of the Cold War with new tactics, training methods, and equipment to respond faster with greater exibility and sustainability. In support of the transformation, the Secretary of Defense and the senior Army leaders have turned the spotlight on safety and set new goals that require bold new actions by commanders, non-commissioned of cers, safety professionals and other leaders. Not only are the new goals a tremendous challenge, the elding of equipment at record paces due to accelerated procurement cycles, the need for immediate information across a broad geographic and operational spectrum, the new requirements for training, and actions supporting transformation while sustaining safety support for current operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, and other theaters are taxing safety professionals at all levels and disciplines. As the Army prepares boldly for its transformation, it is time that the Army Safety Program undergoes a bold transformation. It is time the old methods, concepts and practices be transformed as well to meet the new challenges. Today, when one begins looking at the title of Army’s safety regulations it would appear from the titles that there are several different Army safety programs. To this end, I have directed my staff in the Of ce of the Director of Army Safety to combine and re ne all Army Regulations in the 385-series (safety series) into one Army safety program regulation with supporting pamphlets, thereby allowing users to go to one source to determine their safety responsibilities, roles and requirements. The initiative will eliminate duplication of responsibilities, con icting requirements, and break down “stovepipe” barriers to create synergy and team effort. This transformation would also utilize the Combat Readiness Center’s automated systems to facilitate use of regulatory and procedural information by eld personnel and to establish an Army safety learning system. The process would enable a realistic evaluation of current responsibilities to ensure they are relevant, achievable, and add value to the Army Safety Program. This One Army Safety Program Regulation would allow all the current requirements to work in harmony to implement Composite Risk Management and achieve one cohesive safety program rather than the seemingly fragmented program that now exists. Currently, several regulations utilize different levels of risk requiring risk acceptance by different levels of authority. As part of the transformation and creation of the one regulation, the risk matrix will be revised to allow one risk matrix to be used across the Army. This will allow risk at one location to be comparable to risk at another location thereby allowing Army leadership to allocate limited resources evenly across the Army. Risk is risk and its acceptance should be consistent across the Army. This is a major undertaking and cannot be accomplished without taking advantage of the vast knowledge and experience base that exists across the Army. Commentary Army leaders focus spotlight on safetyThere are names in history that the world should remember. Some of these names are Treblinka, Buchenwald, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen and Birkenau. There are hundreds of other places that have no names. Some of them were just spots in the Polish mud, some of them just spots on the Russian steppes. The most infamous of all is a place called Oscweim in Polish. In German, it is called Auschwitz. This week marks the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops in WWII. It’s a shame it was too late for the estimated two million people who were exterminated there. Oh sure, people have slaughtered people since time began. But Auschwitz was something new in evil deeds. It was something new in man’s inhumanity to man. The genocide of more than six million people undertaken by an entire nation using all available technology at the time had never been done before in all history. It wasn’t barbarians or ignorant savages that performed this mass murder. The Germans were among the most educated, enlightened people in Europe. They had given the world art, music, literature and science. How they were so easily led by a common thug like Hitler into doing these inconceivable things can never be fully answered. The name Auschwitz must always be remembered to show us what hate and intolerance can do. It shows us that even “civilized” people can be led to do terrible things. A name to be remembered

Saturday, Jan. 29, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3Discover card now welcome on Kwaj, RoiTo your credit By Mig Owens Assistant EditorPaybacks can imply bad connotation. But since retail establishments on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur started honoring the Discover card Tuesday, paybacks aren’t such a bad thing after all. In mid-December, Kwajalein Range Services was asked to expand its credit card service to include Discover card in an effort to increase services to residents, according to Mark Paier, KRS Finance manager. In response to the request, Discover card services have been added to 19 locations and 29 machines throughout Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. Unlike other credit cards, Discover card holders enjoy “paybacks” through the company’s Cashback Bonus program, according to their Website. Paier explained, “One difference with using the Discover card is that at the end of the year Discover will give the card holder a 1% cash back refund of all their purchases.” “In a place as remote as Kwajalein, where, for most employees and family members virtually every penny counts, KRS has provided yet another beneficial quality of life measure for our small community,” COL Beverly Stipe, United States Kwajalein Atoll and Reagan Test Site commander, said. According to Paier, the process of adding this service took about two months from start to finish. “I think that for the most part it went pretty smooth,” Paier said. “The most difficult part in getting Discover card added was that once I got all 19 merchant numbers and agreements set up with Discover, I had to physically go out to all the locations and download and test transactions on all 29 machines to make sure the setup was correct.” The Discover card is now accepted at the following locations: Beauty Salon, Caf Pacific, Kwajalein Cash Office, Community Services Office, Kwajalein Day Care Center, Dental Clinic, Gimbel’s, Hospital, Kwaj Lodge, Macy’s, Macy’s West, Oceanview Club, Roi-Namur Cash Office, Small Boat Marina, Surfway, TenTen, Three Palms Snack Bar, and the Yokwe Yuk Club. Stipe said she’s pleased that our stores now take Discover. “I think when shoppers know about the payback system, more residents here will sign up to take advantage of making their money go further.” Said Paier, “As we keep adding new ways of doing business out here on Kwaj, I hope that the community takes advantage of these services and appreciates the efforts that go into making these happen.” COL Beverly Stipe is the rst to use the Discover card on island, with assistance from Claudie James, Ten Ten cashier.(Photo by Mig Owens) By Mig OwensAssistant EditorSomething unusual happened when golfer Lauren Traweek teed off on the rst hole at Holmburg Fairways on Jan. 18 – her ball disappeared from sight on landing. She found it in a small depressed area on the fairway. After hitting her second shot, she showed her husband where the ball had been sitting. When she stepped on the depression, her leg went straight through the sod up to her knee. “I thought that it was a huge crab hole,” Traweek said. Her husband, Billy, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site ground safety of cer, said it would be checked into the next day. “I went on and shot my best game and forgot all about it,” Traweek said. “I birdied on ve.” Though rst thought to have been a bunker, subsequent excavation of the area revealed what appears to be parts of a back lled Japanese tank trap, according to Leslie Mead, KRS environmental scientist-archaeologist. “This was a rectangular trench excavated by the Japanese as part of the island defenses,” Mead said. “The trench was back lled with loose soil, rubble, a fiveinch shell casing, palm logs and various kinds of debris dating ca 1944/45.” Mead said it is believed that, as the palm logs have decayed over time, voids formed in the ground beneath the fairway, resulting in sinkholes. For safety reasons, the area of the sinkholes was excavated with a backhoe and the voids under the surface back lled, she explained. According to Liz Collier, Explosive Ordnance Disposal technician, the shell casing was from a 127 mm Japanese projectile, with the primer still intact. The casing is considered unexploded ordnance, Collier said. “All personnel on USAKA/RTS should remember to be aware of potential unexploded ordnance. In the event that unexploded ordnance is suspected, do not touch it, and call EOD at 51433,” Billy said. Japanese war strategy found beneath golf course

Saturday, Jan. 29, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 risk to other animals, especially the domestic cat population. If a stray “Kwajalein cat” is sited, Morrison urges community members to call the Veterinary Clinic at 52017 or Pest Control at 54738, rather than try capturing it. Though sick strays often look “pretty pitiful,” Morrison said, “They are really quite erce and still have a lot of ght in them. It’s their instinct to ght.” Although an FIV vaccine has been developed, Army Veterinary Services does not recommend nor offer the vaccine in its’ animal clinics. Morrison said the relatively new vaccine only covers a few strains of the virus identified on the East Coast of the mainland. Once a cat is vaccinated, it will test positive for the virus, as the test cannot differentiate between the vaccine and the virus itself. Though 2002 and 2003 resulted in nearly a dozen healthy stray Kwajalein kittens being adopted by island residents, only three were adopted out in 2004. As the population of Kwajalein cats increasingly contracts FIV, fewer adult females are living long enough to bear kittens, Morrison speculated, which most likely accounts for the 70-percent decline of Kwajalein kittens that are rescued, test negative for the virus and are ultimately adopted. “They really do make lovely pets,” Morrison said of the Kwajalein kittens she has placed with adoptive families. However, she urged potential cat owners to not “take in a stray.” “Call Pest Control to capture it. We’ll examine it and test for FIV. Then we’d love to find it a good home,” said Morrison. Island house cats should be kept indoorsAvoiding feline AIDS By Deanna Frazier ReporterOne in 12 American cats tests positive for the deadly Feline Immunode ciency Virus. On Kwajalein, that number nears one in three, according to Margaret Morrison, Kwajalein veterinary technician. Of the stray cats tested on Kwajalein in the last two years, all but two have tested positive for the virus, explained Morrison of the human AIDS-like virus discovered in 1986 among cats in California. FIV belongs to the same family of viruses as HIV (human immunode ciency virus) and immunode ciency viruses in other species. This family of viruses (Lentiviruses) is known for being species-speci c, for life-long infection and for slowly-progressive diseases. FIV is not transmissible from cats to people and HIV is not transmissible from people to cats. However, it is extremely transmissible between cats, especially males. This re ects the greater tendency of male cats (particularly those not neutered) to roam and ght with other cats. Outdoor, free-roaming cats are most at risk to contract FIV than indoor cats. “Every time a house cat goes outdoors, you’re taking a huge risk,” Morrison said of a cat’s potential for FIV infection on Kwajalein. “They need to be trained to stay indoors, or be on a leash if outside,” explained Morrison of house cats under the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll regulation regarding pet ownership. To help keep house cats from getting outside, she recommends keeping and using a squirt-bottle of water near the door to help deter “escape artists.” Only a few squirts at a feline approaching the door, will likely train it to avoid the door, Morrison added. If a house cat inadvertently slips out the door, Morrison urges owners to “immediately go after it, try to nd it right away.” Infected cats can appear healthy for quite some time, and may seem to have no marks indicating a previous bite wound. Oftentimes the bite is undetectable under a cat’s fur, giving the owner no outward sign for concern. However, as the virus depresses the cat’s immune system by preferentially infecting white blood cells, an essential part of a cat’s immune system, the virus disables or destroys the white cells leaving its host susceptible to infections. Once a cat is infected with FIV, it is infected for life and can transmit the virus through its saliva if it bites another cat. Initial symptoms include loss of appetite, fever, lethargy, diarrhea, swollen lymph nodes and low white blood cell count. Second stage cats may seemingly recover and show no symptoms yet become lifelong carriers. Third stage cats experience weight loss, sores in and around the mouth, poor hair coat and secondary infections, which become more frequent and resistant to treatment. “We most often see them die of pneumonia,” Morrison said of FIV-infected cats whose lungs fill with a green, pussy fluid causing suffocation. “It’s a horrible way to die.” Because the chance for stray “Kwajalein cats” to test positive for the virus is so great, island Pest Control specialists routinely set humane traps for the wild felines. Morrison stressed the traps do not harm the animals in any way, but allows the authorities to minimize potential

The Hackers 2 and the SDA 2 teams were evenly matched, but Hackers 2 snuck past SDA II 26-19 and 25-21. “Tim Samuel and Jeomi Keju of the Host Nation’s Of ce sponsored the Ebeye teams,” Doland said. He added that the sponsorship made it possible for the Ebeye teams to compete and Samuel and Keju used their personal time to ensure the teams made it to the docks, and to the gym. “We couldn’t have done it [had as successful a season] without them,” Doland said. In the “B League” championships’ two high school teams fought for the title, the Spartan Co-ed Red versus Spartans I. The competition went to three games before Spartan I took the win. When Kwajalein High School Principal Stephen Howell entered the gym he surveyed the teams and chose a seat high in the bleacher directly on the net. “It would be wonderful if both teams could win,” he said carefully not showing preference. He added that no matter what team won, “they’ll all be winners.” The stands lled with supporters who gasped and groaned with each misplay and when young players careened off one another while trying for an advantage. The serves made the difference. Highlights of the evening’s play included C.J. Kemem’s quick, talented hands as setter for the victorious Spartan I team, Co-ed’s Lindsey Davis’s gutsy return of a hard hit spike by Matt Crane and when Davis’s deep serve nearly clocked Kemem in the back row – causing him to do a gymnastic-like move to avoid the ball that landed well outside of the court. The audience was brought to its feet when a power dink by Spartan’s Ian Taylor was called out, much to the dismay and indignation of half of the crowd, but was met by cheers from the second half of the parents and fans. Final results were: 25-20, 16-25 and 16-14. In the “A League” Hits Like a Girl ended their season as League Champs, but only after they squeaked past Everybody Duck, in a best two-outof-three battle using all three games to gain the title.

During his travels, he’s come upon interesting aspects of life in Iraq. Insurgents? No, Murderers Servicemembers based here object to people using the term “insurgents” to describe the enemy. “Call them what they really are: murderers and scum,” said one Air Force technical sergeant based in the International Zone. She said the murderers are so afraid of the Iraqi people getting a chance to live as they want to, that they resort to killing men, women and children to intimidate the people. “Calling them insurgents sounds like they are ghting for the people,” she said. She had another term for the enemy, but no newspaper is likely to print it. Mad Max Arrives All the furor over the armoring issue overlooks some creative ways servicemembers have customized their vehicles.Some Humvees look like they came out of the Mel Gibson movie “Mad Max.”In addition to armor kits added to the vehicles, some Soldiers have welded on huge steel bumpers to the front and back of Humvees. “It looks scary, doesn’t it?” asked one driver. The threat from vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices is on every servicemembers’ mind. The Soldiers feel the big bumpers stop innocent Iraqi drivers from cutting into the middle of convoys -a tactic of suicide bombers. “It’s kind of tough to overlook a vehicle that looks like that,” said the driver. The brass isn’t wild about the Mad Max vehicles, said the Soldier, but they are still on the road. Breeding Success For every time success, such as capturing terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi’s bomb maker, Abu Omar al-Kurdi, regular people come forward with tips on other dangers. “They see the coalition is making progress,” said a coalition intelligence of cial. “They want their neighborhoods to be safe, but are scared of retribution. When we capture someone big, we get a ood of intelligence from the people.” Of cials said Iraqis tipped coalition forces to many dangers following the capture of Saddam Hussein and the killing of his sons. At the local level, capturing a Baath Party murderer can give people the con dence to turn in other enemies. Iraqi security forces -the police and army mostly -are playing a greater role as the organization grows and becomes more capable. “The Iraqis do feel more comfortable dealing with their countrymen,” said the of cial.Servicemembers speak of life in Iraq They see the coalition is making progress.

Perhaps the most dangerous it’s ever seen. It’s insidious and growing like a cancer. Even after the lessons history has taught us,some people in the world try to appease it in the hope it will just go away. That’s the way Hitler’s Germany began when the world didn’t have the will to stop it before the planet was engulfed in the worst con agration in history in which more than 50 million people died. If you don’t think 50 million could die in this War on Terror, think what a few nuclear bombs or chemical weapons could do. These murderers wouldn’t hesitate to use such weapons if they got their hands on some.The ones threatening the world are not freedom ghters. They seek no justice for their people. How many of their own have they killed, tortured and intimidated? They seek only to impose their warped, radical view of religion and politics on the world. They cannot be appeased. They can only be hunted down and destroyed. Otherwise, the world may see an Auschwitz again. The world has to take a stand, ght these killers and say, “Never Again.”team said, “It was a great championship match that went to three close games. Our opponent dug out all of the shots we tried to put down well played points on both sides with scrappy points in there to keep it entertaining. Maybe we just outscrapped them.” Robert Gray, setter for Everybody Duck said, “As for us, we didn’t really change anything from our basic strategy. We had several players who had never played volleyball at the advanced level before, so we started the season with the goal of teaching everyone some advanced volleyball techniques (like the 6-2 and 5-1 setting formations) and with the intent of playing everyone regardless of whether we were winning or losing our games. Our primary goal was for everyone to learn a little, get a little better and have fun! Considering where we started, just making it to the nals was a great achievement for us, and we de nitely succeeded in our goal to have fun.”He added, “I think the real strength of our team is that the entire team demonstrated good volleyball basics. We consistently passed well, which is crucial to a good offense. On defense we were also pretty consistent with a lot of hustle and being in the right place at the right time. I think it was those simple basics that got us through to the end. Throughout the season however, we have had a history of starting out slow and working out the kinks in our game. I think that was evident in our rst game where we gave away 6 or 7 straight points to unforced errors. We slowly started to gain momentum towards the end of the rst game, but it was a little too late. By the second game, we started to pull together and make more of our hits and execute our plays more cleanly. We ran a 5-1 with me setting. Herman Paul and Kenny Leines were our outside hitters, and when they are on, our team was unbeatable. Because Brandon is such a good blocker, we would occasionally try and draw him to an early block on a front row hitter, but then I would set Kaya to hit from the back row. Herman and Kenny came up with some great hits and a few crucial blocks to help us win that second game. By the third game, I think our nerves got the best of us and the unforced errors came back into play, resulting in the loss of the third game.” Stats for the “A” League championship were: 2515, 24-26 and 15-6. Softball season begins Friday with games Mondays through Saturdays. For more information on league sports call Doland at 53331.
