Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2Commentary 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. It is published Wednesdays and Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff, P.O. Box 23, APO AP 96555. Phone: Autovon 254-3539; local 53539. Printed circulation: 2,000The Kwajalein HourglassCommanding Of cer..........COL Beverly StipeActing Public Affairs Of cer.........Polli Keller Editor.......................................Nell Drumheller Assistant Editor...............................Mig Owens Graphics Designer.............................Dan Adler Intern......................................Brandon Stevison Circulation..................................Will O'Connell Band of brothers, company of heroesOn Dec. 21, 1861, a bill creating the Medal of Honor was signed by President Abraham Lincoln. There were 1,502 recipients during the Civil War, 426 in the Indian Wars, 110 in the Spanish-American War, 86 during actions in the Philippines, 59 in China for the Boxer War and other engagements, 119 in World War I, 464 in World War II, 131 in the Korean War, 245 in Vietnam, two for actions in Somalia in 1993 and various other actions for a total of 3, 459 since the medal was created. How many of the recipient’s names do we know? How many of their deeds do we remember? So far, there has been one Medal of Honor recipient in Iraq. I'll do my best to remember his name and what he did. On April 4, 2003, Sgt. First Class Paul Ray Smith and his 16 men were attacked by 50-100 Iraqis near Baghdad Airport. The Iraqis red RPGs and mortar rounds, which wounded several of the Americans. Smith could have ordered his men to withdraw. If he had, medics and wounded at a nearby aid station could have been overrun. Smith disregarded his own safety and climbed on top of an unoccupied armored personnel carrier in front of his men and opened re with a 50-caliber machine gun. Pvt. Michael Seaman fed ammunition to Smith who killed 20-50 Iraqis and covered his men who were being pushed back. As the battle was ending, Smith was shot in the head. Medics worked to save his life for 30 minutes but he died. He was 33 years old. He leaves a wife and two children. He was from Tampa, Fla. His men said that if not for Smith's actions, they would have been killed. Smith will be the rst servicemember to receive the Medal of Honor since 1993. Sometimes men wonder what they would do in certain situations. Would they be out front yelling, “Let's give them hell,” or would they be in back yelling, “Let's get the hell out of here.” Paul Ray Smith was the kind of man who was out in front. We should remember that he was and try our best to honor Sgt. First Class Smith and all the military men and women in harm’s way. They are out in front everyday. Editor’s note: President George W. Bush will present the Medal to Smith’s widow sometime in March For more information on the Medal of Honor, see the Web site http: // history.html.

Daugherty agreed with Keller, “Tests are team events, not executed by any one person or group. Win successfully coordinates with many diverse organizations, both internal and external to the command, in order to ensure timely test support. Staying coordinated is a critical task, with the number of players involved in the kinds of tests we support here at RTS. Win enables communication within the team to ensure that when requirements change – and they always do – all test team members are aware and adjust their support and mission execution plans accordingly,” she said. Recognizing the importance of the mission tests, Keller said, “From the USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] commander down, regardless of you particular job, ultimately we are all here to conduct or support the conduct of tests.” Keller’s Army career has spanned more than 18 years, and he advises junior of cers that the secret to a successful career is “You have to enjoy what you are doing. Get challenging jobs you want and will be happy in. It’s a lot easier to do well if you are having fun.” Daugherty described the USAKA mission, “The Army is obviously a part of the Department of Defense, and here at Reagan Test Site we have the opportunity to serve not only the Army directly, but the DoD as well through ballistic missile test support we provide other Services and DoD agencies. It is very important work. Some tests at RTS support improved capabilities for systems the Army either does or will operate, including the Patriot and Ground-based MidCourse Defense systems. Other tests support performance assessment of ballistic missile systems the Air Force or Navy operate. Since we ght as a joint force, those Navy and Air Force systems ultimately serve to protect or defend all war ghters, our soldiers included. Test Directors at Reagan Test Site, through the conduct of their duties, help make the Department of Defense’s ballistic missile systems the best they can be, and as such it is truly an honor to serve here,” she said. Keller has been on Kwajalein for two years and plans to be here through the summer of 2006. He has been selected for promotion to lieutenant colonel and is expected to pin on his new rank in early April. Maj. Win Keller, Range executive of cer, has been named U.S. Army military tester of the year. (Photo by Nell M. Drumheller) By Nell M. Drumheller EditorMaj. Win eld Keller, Range executive of cer, has been named the U.S. Army Military Tester of the Year by the National Defense Industrial Association. “As a test director, I am responsible for our cost, performance and schedule in support of a test. The RTS [Reagan Test Site] team must conduct missions, safely and on time; collect all required data and provide the data to our customer; and do all this within budget,” Keller said. Tests can be categorized as, developmental (verifying the system design meets desired capability), operational (evaluating operational effectiveness and suitability of a system under realistic operational conditions) or live re testing (assessment of the vulnerability/lethality of a system prior to production). In general, a tester could be anyone involved in testing a new system such as the test coordinator, data collector, evaluator or test subject. “I am fortunate to have been able to conduct both developmental and operational testing in previous assignments and here at RTS,” Keller said. NDIA is a non-pro t organization whose mission is to provide a legal and ethical forum for the interchange of ideas between the government and industry to resolve industrial problems of joint concern. “Maj. Win Keller possesses and continually demonstrates outstanding leadership, management and problem solving skills. Win is adept at understanding complex and interdependent test requirements, pulling together the right group of people to address those requirements, empowering the team to take action to meet requirements, and then following up to ensure all issues have been addressed prior to mission execution. Win is constantly looking to see what issues could arise, and takes early action to resolve or eliminate the potential for such issues to impact a test,” said Lt. Col. Anne Daugherty, Range commander. Keller identi ed building a quali ed, motivated team as most critical to being a successful tester. “RTS has created Integrated Product Teams supporting each mission area. Our ability to conduct tests would not be possible without people like Doug Peters and Merrie Beth Schad in KRS [Kwajalein Range Ser-

Though West said she had her dress selected three weeks ago, the decision to attend was also made the day of the dance. Wearing a big smile, Galloway didn’t seem fazed, and said, “I enjoy getting to play dad to a little girl since I raised three boys.” West said she particularly enjoyed the chicken dance and, when asked what might be improved for future dances, said, “I don’t know. It’s perfect.” Steve Rejto and his daughter, Rebecca, who attended similar father-daughter events stateside in Massachusetts, said they enjoyed this one even more. They liked the fact that there was food, said the music was good and agreed that the decorations were awesome. “I was really impressed with the decorations,” Steve said. “I think they did a great job.” Typical of the girls, Rebecca admitted to spending more time with her friends than her dad. “I think almost the whole sixth grade showed up,” she said. Doing the Macarena onstage ranked high on Rebecca’s list of the night’s great moments. On re ection, she offered as a suggestion adding a dance contest to future events. Cindy Stevison, event co-chair, said she’s gotten positive feedback on the event both in person and by phone, particularly on the decorations, which came in only one week before the event. “Diane Swanby [decorating committee chair] did such a wonderful job, had the idea, made the stars and clouds herself and took charge. “It was fabulous and was one of the best turnouts,” Stevison, who has been involved with the event for the past three years, said. “The halos were an added bonus that the girls were excited about it. I’m thrilled to death.” Opposite page: (Top) Dads join the bunny hop line for a trip around the dance oor.

VMB-613 was the only Marine Corps squadron to y the PBJ-1H in combat. This aircraft was notable for carrying a 75 mm cannon in addition to bombs and machine guns. The six aircraft involved in the raid ew from the squadron’s forward operating base on Eniwetok Atoll. Defying bad weather and intense anti-aircraft re, the ight cratered the runway and demolished a large building adjacent to the eld with a 75 mm round. However, the last aircraft in the formation, piloted by Lt. William J. Love, was hit as it leveled out for its bombing run. The plane’s right wing collapsed and the bomber crashed and exploded. The crew’s remains were recovered after the war and returned to the U.S. for burial. The navigator on another aircraft in the formation was also killed during the attack. The abandoned Japanese air base was transformed into the site of the FSM national capital during the late 1980s.U.S. Embassy, Federated States of Micronesia ReleaseThe United States Embassy in the Federated States of Micronesia, the FSM government and local veterans joined to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the loss in combat of a U.S. Marine Corps bomber. On Feb. 6, 1945, a ight of six PBJ-1 bombers from U.S. Marine Bombing Squadron 613 struck the newly completed Japanese air eld at Palikir on the island of Pohnpei in the Caroline Islands. Although the target suffered heavy damage, one aircraft was shot down with the loss of all on board. For this year’s commemorative anniversary, at 11:15 a.m. on Feb. 6, the same time that Japanese anti-aircraft re brought down the aircraft, the names of the crew members who made the supreme sacri ce during the raid were read, Taps was sounded and U.S. Ambassador Suzanne Hale and Speaker of the FSM Congress Peter Christian placed a wreath on the aircraft’s engine and propeller, which still rest at the crash site.More than 30 people took part in the ceremony, held in a jungle clearing on a hillside above the old air eld site at Palikir in northern Pohnpei. Attendees included Department of Foreign Marshallese Word of the Day60th anniversay of lost bomber observedBy Brandon Stevison InternAre you in any need of help with your taxes?
