Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2 Commentary Army brat enjoys changes of scenery Being able to live in exotic locations around the world is an option many people would love to have. If you live on Kwajalein, odds are you’re experiencing this to a certain extent. I’ve been an Army brat all my life, and I’ve had the experience of traveling to many diverse locations. Most of the places I’ve traveled to, I’ve also lived in. Although I don’t always appreciate the changing of life-styles (schools, friends, etc.), I have to acknowledge that living in different places has helped me to grow as a person, and experience things I never would have known otherwise. I’ve lived in three different countries: the United States, Germany (only for a year), and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. In the U.S., I’ve lived in ve different states, but I’ve spent time in just about every southern state there is. In different countries, or even different states, native people live differently. When you’re surrounded by these people, you’re forced to adapt to their customs (the healthy ones at least). Each time you adapt, your mind is opened further and further, allowing you to see things in different lights you wouldn’t have ever seen while staying in one spot. This life-style adaptation skill comes in handy in almost any part of life, whether it be nding new friends to hang out with, or even getting used to a new professor or teacher. Even though I’ve lived in many different places, I still have a home. When this school year ends, I’ll be leaving Kwajalein and returning to that home. Soon after that, I’ll be heading to college and then off to a new world of adulthood. These upcoming stages in life are going to be action packed, with twists and turns around every corner. I often complain to my parents about moving all over by saying, “I’m never going to know what the real world’s like if you move me to places like this.” But to tell the truth, being moved all over the place (especially to places like this) is going to better prepare me for the challenges presented to me by the “real world.” The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA.

The Hawaii Revised Standard Traf c Codes and USAKA/ RTS Regulation #190-5 apply to bicycle riders as well as motorists in that bicycles are considered vehicles too. All bicycle riders must adhere to these laws and this regulation just as if they were driving an automobile. Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in unsafe acts by cyclists such as riding without hands on the handlebars and not checking traf c before changing lanes or turning. Such acts could cause themselves or someone else to be injured. The National Center for Statistics and Analysis reports that in 2002, there were 662 pedalcyclists killed in the United States and 48,000 injured in pedalcycle related accidents. Kwajalein is not immune to these accidents and we have had a few, including one that resulted in a fatality. To encourage the community to abide by and support these laws and regulations, KPD has initiated an incentive program to reward riders who follow the laws. Of cers may issue certi cates good for a free movie rental at Tape Escape whenever they see a cyclist demonstrating bike safety. To redeem the free movie rental, individuals need only to take the certi cate to the Central Police Station, Building 807, and they will receive the coupon for the free movie rental. In addition, KPD will continue to sponsor the bicycle rodeos and we ask that parents convey to their children the importance of bike safety. KPD would like everyone to think safety and bicycle responsibility.— Capt. Denise Morrow Kwajalein Police Dept Kios Calep, 62, of Ebeye died in Honolulu on Jan. 8. Calep was a grandfathered RMI employee and was a lead custodian for the Housing department. He had worked on Kwajalein for 27 years. According to Flynn Gideon, Housing/ Custodial supervisor, Calep was a “sweet and gentle man” who will be greatly missed by his family, coworkers and friends. Calep is survived by his wife, Asneth, sons Bermen, Barson, Carlson, Carmie, Jodan, Anderson and Roger and daughters Carmen, Carmelia, Cathlina, and Adlynn and nine grandchildren. He was a member of the United Church of Christ. Funeral services were held on Ebeye Jan. 25.Kios CalepIn memoriam


Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3Project raises funds for tsunami victimsCleaning up Kwajalein By Mig Owens Assistant EditorTypically, the hundredth day of school at George Seitz Elementary School would be celebrated on an individual scale with students, for example, bringing to class a collection of 100 jelly beans, shells, buttons or whatever they could gather. Thanks to a faculty brainstorming session, a Red Cross yer in the teachers' lounge and support from the Parent Teacher Organization, this year’s celebration was a rst-of-its-kind school-wide activity designed to promote goodwill. The project dubbed “A Wave of Relief” enabled students to make a difference locally, by cleaning up the island, and internationally, by raising money to help tsunami victims. Envelopes sent home Saturday prompted eager students to go door-to-door asking for support for the project from the community in the form of pledges. All money collected is to be donated to the Red Cross International Response Fund. Third grader, Annie Hepler went door-to-door, phoned people and asked her parents to contribute. She said her parents agreed to help her reach her goal of $100, which she said is good because, “If my mom and dad would have let me, I would have put all my own money in it.” Organizers of the event were Sonya Sava, second-grade teacher and Terri King, fth-grade teacher and acting elementary school principal. “It’s a fun event for school spirit.” Sava said. “The kids are pretty excited about it. When the envelopes were passed out Saturday, students were already on the road.” She added that the second graders are eager to eat pizza, awarded to those who collect $100 or more, with their fourth-grade reading buddies. Donations were solicited in the form of 100 pennies ($1), 100 nickels ($5), 100 dimes ($10), 100 quarters ($25), etc., re ecting the cause for celebration. The PTO plans to host the pizza lunch and the student council will reward with candy those students with the highest number of sponsors. The upper grades really got into the project, Sava said, which created healthy competition. Cheryl DeLong, second-grade teacher, added that it was funny to listen to the older kids scheme about how to solicit from the bachelors, because they are not permitted to enter the bachelor quarters. Fifth grader Michelle Van Rensselaer collected $200 total from 10 sponsors. She said, “I never knew that people would give me that much.” On Thursday, students from kindergarten through sixth grade donated 100 minutes of their afternoon to clean up Kwajalein, targeting areas on the island in need of “litter patrol.” Those areas included such island hot spots as Emon Beach, Ivey Gym, Corlett Recreation Center, Richardson Theater, Brandon Field, as well as the dock and pier, family pool and golf course. Students wore gloves to pick up trash and worked to separate recyclables from garbage using large, clear plastic bags. School staff members in a van circulated the island providing kids with cool water and popsicles. At one stop, Cheryl Shields, choral music teacher and van driver, found it humorous that one of the students unwrapped the plastic from their popsicle and asked, “What do I do with my trash?” Fourth grader, Elizabeth Clark, said she found lots of cigarette butts, beer bottles and even a dime. A group of sixth graders reported finding flip ops, golf balls, a cooler and “somebody’s pants.” The class bagged 15 full bags of trash, according to Tarah Yurovchak, sixth grade teacher. “The kids are aware that this is a good-will effort and there are other kids and adults that are in need and this is who is bene ting from their efforts,” DeLong said. DeLong offered thanks to the community for their support of the project saying, “I think it’s a good feeling and lesson for everybody to support kids in the community toward a cause to better the community.” She said that this project in particular enabled students to learn what it feels like to give. Melisa Schilling, a sixth grader who shared that collecting money was more fun with a friend, said of the project, “it made me feel better about myself.” Lance Compton, a rst grader on cleanup duty at Emon Beach, said helping the tsunami victims makes him feel “very, very glad because helping is very, very good and you can be really, really kind to other people.”First grader Sandra Luksic helps pick up trash during the island cleanup project Thursday.

Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorMoving is in the top ve of high-level stressors in most people’s lives. Moving across the world to a culture unlike your own and for some, to a military installation for the rst time, might seem overwhelming. There’s one person who can ease the burden of your move more than any other, that person is your sponsor. Being a good sponsor could be one of the most important things an employee could do while at a remote location. Marion Ruf ng, Certi ed Employee Assistance Professional and psychologist, sees the stress of moving here from a professional and personal level. “I feel the distress and emotional challenges differ between the accompanied and unaccompanied. For instance, the single unaccompanied face the emotional challenge of seeking out new friends, dating, and establishing support systems and adjusting to a life away from home and family,” she said. She added, “The accompanied face the challenge of detaching the children from the place they came from and re-attaching them to life on Kwajalein, while at the same time meeting the challenge of balancing school, home, work and social life.” Robert Bills, Kwajalein Range Services Human Resources manager, offers some tips for being a sponsor. He suggests: • Make certain all family members possess current and valid passports. They must have them before travel can be arranged to Kwajalein. • Get their Post Of ce box as early as possible so they can pre-ship items. Call HRO at 51300 to request a box number. Advise new employees to include the line 'U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll' in their address. • Advise the new arrivals that they can either mail bikes or purchase them once they are on Kwajalein. Explain that bikes are the typical form of transportation on Kwajalein. •As soon as a sponsor has a Post Of ce Box for a new employee, they can ll out a phone request. In addition, the sponsor should request both home and business personal identi cation numbers. This form can be found on the K Drive under Forms, Communication, and “Kwajalein Telephone Service Request.” Their home PIN will be mailed to their P.O. Box. • Process all Information Technology Account Requests for computer access prior to arrival, so the new employee can begin work immediately. Be sure to ask for e-mail, a home drive, network drives speci c to their work, along with authorization to applications they will need. • Ask if the new employee wants more than one phone line installed and explain that the cost is $20 for each phone line. • Get a phone book for the new employee; the maps and hours of operation are helpful for the new arrival. • The Housing Of ce will activate a meal card for all unaccompanied arrivals assigned to a bachelor quarters. A temporary meal card can be picked up a day before the person arrives, along with the keys to their quarters. • Print a copy of your department personnel list Or how to be a good sponsor Arriving on Kwajalein for the rst time can be a strange and unnerving experience.

Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5and place it both at the employee’s desk and in their quarters. • Print out a driver’s license application form, which can be found on the K Drive under Forms, Automotive. • If they are bringing a pet, call Veterinary Services at 52017 to report a new pet will be arriving on island or request that it be placed on a waiting list, if current quotas are met. • Go to the Republic of the Marshall Islands Of ce, Bldg. 901, and ll out a pet importation form. There will be a $10 fee for this. Give the completed form to the Veterinary Clinic. • E-mail the documents on “Pet Importation” to the person you are sponsoring. This information can be obtained from Veterinary Services or HRO. Remind the person you are sponsoring that the transportation of pets is the responsibility of the owner. • When all paperwork has been turned in and all shots/tests given to the pet, go to the Veterinarian Clinic and pick up the stamped approval letter. This letter, along with the RMI pet importation form and the health certi cate must be faxed to the owners. Have them make several copies of this packet. The packet will need to be given to various authorities at several points on their way to Kwajalein, including when they arrive on Kwajalein. • Recommend a hard plastic carrier, as the pet will have to remain in quarantine while in Hawaii. This will provide protection for the pet. • Contact the School Administration Of ce at 53761 to inform them of arriving school-age children. Provide them with the names, ages, grade, estimated arrival dates and how to get in contact with the parents. • Arrange for a vehicle and pick up new arrivals at the airport. Take them to their quarters to drop off luggage and treat them to an island tour. Points of critical interest for the new employee are Surfway, Ten-Ten, Caf Paci c, the Post Of ce, Finance, the hospital, Macy’s/Macy’s West, the schools and dock security. • Stop by Housing for inprocessing. • Depending on the time of arrival, stop by the Three Palms snack bar or Caf Paci c for a refreshment and/or meal. Unaccompanied staff will have a meal card that can be used at the Caf Paci c. • Bring the employee to HRO to ll out paperwork and get them enrolled in payroll. • If registering children for school, be sure they have health certi cates, immunization and school records to give to the administration of ce. The parent has to ll out the forms prior to the children attending school. Take the children with you so they can meet their teacher and see their classrooms. • Go to the Post Of ce so they can sign for their P.O. Box and pick up the combination. At that time, mail and packages may be picked up. • Take the family to the employee’s department and introduce them. Not all families are alike; families with children who have special needs may require additional support. Dan Frazier, Kwajalein Schools superintendent explains what is available for these families. “By contract, Kwajalein Schools are limited in their ability to help students with special needs. Each family must complete a Dependent Education Checklist for After the shipment arrives, setting up house can be a daunting affair and sometimes newcomers need help.

Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 from Page 4 licensed products. While knowing what’s available on island, the historical and cultural facts of the community, and what quarters will be like are important, Ruf ng added that the reality of stepping off that plane and adjusting to the humidity, rain, heat and remoteness of Kwajalein can be a challenge for newcomers. “Newcomers also face the emotional challenge of getting through the rst holiday away from family and friends,” she said. Ruf ng said, “I feel the sponsor needs to do more than meet you at the airport, drive you around the island pointing out buildings and then dropping you off at your quarters.” She added, “I feel we need a more extended sponsorship program. I know the church has a group that will prepare a basket and continue the support of newcomers; maybe the company can incorporate some of what they do to ease the distress and emotional challenge of newcomers.” In her experience, the sponsor that takes the extra steps to have the room or quarters ready for the newcomer is a good sponsor. “If the newcomer can walk into his/ her room or quarters, and pick up the phone and hear a dial sound indicating the phone is turned on, that goes a long way in easing the anxiety of being a newcomer,” she said. Knowing they have a Post Of ce box for mail delivery is also helpful to the newcomer. For accompanied newcomers, the sponsor can make sure a newcomer’s kit is delivered. Placing bottles of water, cold drinks, snacks, toilet paper and paper towels in any newcomer’s room is always appreciated according to Ruf ng. In the long run, being a good sponsor is helping the newcomer adjust and answering their questions. “One other item I hear often from newcomers, they didn’t know what time to report for work the day after their arrival, or the location of the building they are to report to, or even ‘how in the world do I get to work?’,” she processed. No one is allowed on island without approved orders. “There are lots of places to travel to around Kwajalein whether you're looking for a long weekend or a month vacation, the choice is up to you,” Paier said. Capt. Denise Morrow, of the Kwajalein Police Department, has been on Kwajalein for more than seven years and offers some advice to sponsors. “Isolation from family, limited products and services other than recreation are the worst things about living on Kwajalein.” But she added that the best thing about living on Kwajalein is the recreation opportunities, worldclass diving and shing and the ability to save money. She de ned the recreation opportunities including: a variety of activities through our Community Activities, softball, volleyball, basketball, b-boats to go to an outer island or to sh or to dive, a Hobby Shop that provides pottery, ceramics and a wood shop, and two movie theaters and a bowling alley. “We also have a video rental store,” she said. One of the most asked questions by new employees is what items they should bring with them and what they can purchase here. People familiar with living on overseas and remote military installations are a step ahead of those who have never lived either overseas or on a military installation. Speci cally on the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Reagan Test Site installation, it is advised that new hires consider bringing linen, towels, dishes, cookware, some types of sports equipment (e.g., scuba, shing), art supplies, clothes, pictures, cameras, clock, iron and ironing board. While shopping on island isn’t the best in the world, the KRS Retail stores provide the essentials and with the Internet available, consumers can shop online. The mail is delivered through military channels and sometimes takes two to three weeks longer for delivery than stateside shipments. There are also licensed vendors on island who provide handicrafts, art and each child prior to their arrival on the island. This is used to screen students to see if Kwaj schools are capable of meeting their needs,” he said. “However, Kwajalein Schools have a resource teacher to help students with minor learning disabilities. The schools also employ a full-time speech pathologist/ therapist who helps students develop their speech patterns. Finally, the schools enjoy an unusually low ratio of students to teachers, and Kwajalein teachers are experts in adapting their instruction to meet individual student needs,” he added. Kwajalein is an island community, and as such, the dress code may be a bit more informal than other communities. “The dress at Kwajalein Schools is island casual. Even the teachers wear short pants and sandals or flip-flops. Although dressed casually, the teachers wear good quality clothing because they all recognize their importance as role models for our people,” Frazier explained. Kwajalein is not very close to anyplace else, and travel is sometimes an issue for those who are accustomed to getting in their cars and heading over to the next town. “Getting off the island is not dif cult to do,” explained Hope Paier, KRS travel coordinator. “You will receive one paid trip off island a year and can travel on personal leave when approved by your supervisor. There is one commercial ight which takes you to Honolulu on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, it also goes to Guam, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Chuuk [Federated States of Micronesia] on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday,” she said. She added that there are two military ights going to Honolulu each week. “If you have military privileges, you can travel Space A, otherwise they are more expensive than the commercial ight.” You will be required to ll out a travel request for all types of travel and submit it to the KRS Travel department where travel orders will


Saturday, Feb. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 Marshallese Soldier returns from Iraq By Mig Owens Assistant EditorSgt. Julium Lejjena thought the Marshall Islands were hot, but the heat here pales in comparison to Kuwait, he said with a laugh, where he spent the past year working on vehicles and power generators, making more than 200 missions with his unit to Iraq and Afghanistan. On leave after his tour and awaiting return to Iraq for at least another year, Lejjena is visiting relatives in both Hawaii and the Marshall Islands. Next stop is a visit to see his wife and children, who live in the United States. On Wednesday, Lejjena was greeted at the airport on Kwajalein by Maj. David Coffey, Host Nation chief, Alan Taylor, Republic of the Marshall Islands relations specialist and Noda Lojkar, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll/RMI ombudsman, on return from a visit to Third Island. Though he is the only one in his unit, Lejjena is one of approximately 17 Marshallese serving in the Armed Forces “all over Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said. “I don’t mind going back,” he said. “I signed on the dotted line. I’ll go wherever they send me.” He said the possibilities include Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar, and explained that he’ll know in the next month or two. Lejjena said he spent nine years on active duty in the Army before joining the National Guard. Through the guard, he was deployed for 17 months, ve of which he spent in the states supporting homeland security. During his tour, he juggled jobs as a power generation mechanic, wheel mechanic and paralegal. Of his duty, Lejjena said, “It’s a job – it’s an adventure. [We’ve] gotta take the war to their backyard and not ours. I’ll do anything to keep the nation safe.” Being apart from his family was hard at rst, Lejjena explained, but when he is away he is able to call them every day, as well as e-mail them. “It’s gotten better and better,” he said. Lejjena said he serves for “freedom and the protection of people,” adding that he likes to serve people. But, “war is not fun,” he stated, describing conditions in Iraq as dusty and dif cult. “People think they’re poor out here in the Marshall Islands. There, people go to dumpsters, take out food and eat it.” Support of Soldiers like Lejjena often comes in the mail in the form of candies, snacks, soap, shampoo, letters, cakes and cookies, which he said makes them feel great “that people are thinking about us.” In response, he said, “On behalf of all the Soldiers from the Marshall Islands and our comrades, thank you. We really appreciate your support.” Sgt. Julium Lejjena

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Al e, (R) is a remake of the 1966 lm of the same name and features Jude Law lling the shoes Michael Caine wore in the title role. Al e follws a charming, if morally lacking, womanizer from one bed to the next. While his actions arise more from nonchalance than malice, Al e nonetheless faces a morale dilemma when considering that he's impregnated one of his latest girlfriends. Includes performances from Marisa Tomei, Susan Sarandon and Nia Long. Mr. 3000 (PG-13) revolves around baseball star Stan Ross (Bernie Mac), who retired after making what he thought was his 3,000th base hit for the Milwaukee Brewers (i.e. the exact amount of hits it takes to qualify for the Hall of Fame). Though he shocked his teammates by quitting in the middle of a game, certain that his Hall of Fame position was in the bag, complications arise when he discovers that three of his hits during his ten-year career had been disquali ed. The 47-year-old, out-of-shape ball player returns to the game intending to stay only as long as it takes to get the hits he needs. Something unexpected happens along the way – he rediscovers his love of the game and begins to serve as a mentor for one of the younger players. Resident Evil: Apocalypse (R), One of the only survivors of a man-made plague joins forces with a team of private warriors in a bid to save what's left of the Earth in this sequel to Resident Evil, the big-screen adaptation of the popular video game.

The U.S. defeated Japanese forces on Feb. 9, 1944 and that day is now a Kwajalein Atoll local holiday. Formerly known as Liberation Day, it is now referred to as Memorial Day. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. on Ebeye. On tap is the opening ceremony, which usually features welcoming remarks delivered by traditional leaders, the Republic of the Marshall IslandÂ’s President or his representative, U.S. Embassy or USAKA representatives and KALGOVÂ’s Mayor. They also have a very entertaining parade, which in the past has featured strong turnout and participation from all of the schools on Ebeye. The parade usually features the RMI/KALGOV Police, oats, and the Kwajalein Jr/Sr Marching band. While I love the excitement of the parade, the fun really begins in the Marshallese Memorial Day is Wednesday afternoon. KALGOV, beginning last week, has organized basketball and volleyball tournaments. The championship games will take place in the late afternoon or early evening on Memorial Day. Additionally, there are track and eld games that school children participate in, and usually a long distance run from Gugeegue to Ebeye. It is a unique experience and de nitely worth the visit.RMI citizens on Ebeye celebrate Marshallese Memorial Day in honor of the liberation of Kwajalein from the Japanese in February, 1944.
