Wednesday, March 30, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2The 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 Tuesdays and Fridays 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.

Many feel that the bugle calls interfere with their “quality of life” on this island, while others see the calls as a sign of patriotism and an honoring of the American ag. Having never served in the U.S. Army, the bugle calls that play mean absolutely nothing to me. I was never taught their meaning, or the purposes for playing them, except that Reveille means that it is time to get up and Taps means that it is time for bed. Obviously, though, they mean something to those people who are currently serving in the Army, and they are bound by their rules to perform a certain way when the bugle calls go off. We’ve been told that we should stop what we are doing when the bugle calls start, that we should face either the ag or the direction of speaker to honor the American ag. I’m sorry, but if you are facing the speakers, you are actually honoring the water tower, and I object to that. It seems to make a mockery of what our ag stands for. Also, this is not the National Anthem that is playing, and that is what indicates that we should show patriotism to our ag. Like I stated, U.S. Army bugle calls mean absolutely nothing to anyone who is not in the service. If the bugle calls interfere with a movie or a sporting event, it makes no difference to me. It does bother me that the bugle calls awaken me every night, since I am rarely up later than 8 p.m. This is especially true since there are so few Army personnel on this island, and they all live at the other end of Kwajalein. The only ones that can hear the bugle calls are those living in the BQs, or those who happen to be down in the area of the mini-mall when the speaker goes off. Since the bugle calls mean so much to U.S. Army personnel, including the Colonel, the speaker should be at that end of the island for them to enjoy. We aren’t going to change Colonel Stipe’s mind about the bugle calls, since this is technically an Army base and she is our leader, but she should not try to change our minds concerning whether we show allegiance to a water tower when the bugle calls are played, or whether we go on about our business … as long as we do not interfere with those people who are honoring that structure. I will put up with being awakened at night, as those who work shift-work will be awakened several times during the daylight hours. That doesn’t mean that we’ll be happy, but we will survive. Please remember, though, that we do not follow blindly, as the U.S. Army often expects. Thus, allow us to make our own decisions on how we respond to the calls.I read in the March 23 Hourglass that there are those who feel listing our deceased warriors is depressing...hummmm, and how do their families feel? I recently had a friend visiting and she noticed the article listing the deceased warriors on my table. She questioned why the articles was so marked-up i.e. names, ages and hometown underlined and circled, notes regarding cause of death, towns in Iraq where their deaths occurred. I told her I made a concentrated effort to get to know a little about each who had paid the ultimate sacri ce for my freedom and then I said a prayer for comfort for their families. Also I want my Heavenly Father to know that I appreciate these individuals’ choice to serve him and our global family. To my surprise she said she also prays for the fallen warriors and their families!!! Thank goodness I am not alone in my endeavors! Can I do less than this for a warrior and his family? Perhaps I feel so strongly because I have four children in the military – 2 of whom are deployed to Iraq and in harms way – in fact, one was wounded last week and in hospital until he is repaired and ready to return to duty – being there instead of with his EOD team is a trial of his patience! He wants to be with them helping to save military and civilians from the horrors of IEDs. Please do not remove this weekly article– Global War on Terror Honoring Fallen Heros ... ”It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” from the Hourglass We, part of the global family, need this opportunity to express our appreciation to the One who can make a difference in lives everywhere. — Syvella Laverne Arthur Mother and wife of ve heros!— C. A. Murray


Wednesday, March 30, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3Historic bugle carried through generations By Sgt. Michael J. Carden, USA American Forces Press ServiceHe was six years old when his grandmother rst showed him the bugle. She told him the history and the stories of the Shoults men who carried it to war, and of how the family tradition began in 1916 when his grandfather, a former U.S. Army sergeant with the Minnesota National Guard, carried the bugle to the Mexican border during the search for Pancho Villa, the rebel general of the Mexican Revolution. His grandfather also carried the bugle during World War I. His grandmother also spoke of how his father, an Army ghter pilot, never learned to play the bugle, but still carried it to battle during World War II. His uncle, an Air Force pilot, continued the tradition during Vietnam. “My grandmother told me that the bugle had been sitting at her house since my uncle got back from Vietnam, and one day the bugle may belong to me,” said Maj. Hugh Shoults, operations of cer, Task Force Dragon, 18th Airborne Corps, Fort Bragg, N.C. His grandmother’s premonition was correct. Shoults is the current caretaker of the family’s bugle. He began playing Army bugle calls, such as “Assembly,” “Reveille” and “Taps” as a youngster in Spokane, Wash. “My father couldn’t play, but being a World War II veteran, he knew the different bugle calls,” Shoults said. “He would hum the bugle calls to me and I would play them. That’s how I learned.” Shoults continued with his musical interests in high school. He played the trumpet, which is a sister instrument of the bugle and is played in the same manner. Although Shoults played the trumpet in high school, he never played his family’s bugle publicly until he was in college. As an ROTC cadet at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Shoults, proud of his family’s tradition, kept the bugle with him. He played his family’s bugle for the rst time in public during a memorial ceremony the university held for the crew of the Challenger space shuttle, killed during the shuttle’s explosion shortly after take-off on Jan. 28, 1986. Shoults said he played “Taps” in their honor. “It was an emotional ceremony, but I was happy to play,” he said. After completing ROTC and college, Shoults was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Army’s Chemical Corps. He was stationed in Vicenza, Italy, with 3rd Maj. Hugh Shoults, operations of cer, Task Force Dragon, 18th Airborne Corps, Fort Bragg, N.C., is the third generation of Shoults men to carry a family heirloom bugle to a combat zone. The family's tradition began with his grandfather in 1916. Shoults' father and uncle carried the bugle in battle in World War II and Vietnam. Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. While there, he deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. He also deployed to Liberia. “I didn’t really let anyone know that I had the bugle with me,” Shoults said. “But I pretty much carried it around in my rucksack.” In Bosnia, a young 1st Lt. Shoults worked with Maj. Richard Hooker, now a colonel and Shoults’ brigade commander in Operation Iraqi Freedom. “Colonel Hooker remembered from Bosnia that I had my family’s bugle,” Shoults said. “He made sure to remind me to bring it to Iraq with me this time.” Since January, when Shoults deployed to Camp Victory in support OIF, he has played his bugle for one memorial ceremony. On Valentine’s Day, he played “Taps” at a service held for an explosive ordinance disposal soldier who was killed in action earlier that week. “When I heard about the EOD soldier who was killed, I offered to play my bugle at his memorial,” Shoults said. “I thought it would mean more to the troops, rather than “Taps” being played on a sound system or tape recorder.” Playing at the memorial ceremony was more dif cult than he had anticipated, Shoults said. It was the rst time he had played for a memorial service since November 2003, which was at his own father’s funeral service, ful lling a promise that he made to his father many years before he passed away, he said. “The EOD memorial was very emotional for me,” Shoults said. “I almost lost it right there. I had not played since my father’s funeral.” Although playing the bugle at future memorial services may resurface sad memories for Shoults, he’ll continue the family tradition to carry and play his bugle in honor of his fallen comrades, he said. “It’s a great tradition,” Shoults said. “I feel very honored and proud to carry my family’s bugle.” Since Shoults’ grandfather rst carried the bugle nearly a century ago, the old brass bugle has been through eight American and allied con icts, representing almost 90 years of sacri ce and sel ess service by American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. It has traveled over three oceans and four continents, serving in battle with those servicemembers in the hands of three generations of Shoultses. “I’ve got two children,” Shoults said. “Shelly is six, and my son, Nick, is seven. If either of them chooses to serve in the military, I will give them the bugle and expect them to carry on the tradition. If not, they can keep it and give it to their children. I’m sure someone in our family, down the line, will serve again.” (Photo by Sgt. Michael J. Carden)


P r e s i d e n t ’ s D a y p h o t o e x h i b i t President’s Day photo exhibit d i s p l a y e d l o c a l p h o t o g r a p h e r s ’ t a l e n t s displayed local photographers’ talentsBy Jill Schoeneck Special to the Hourglass O ver the President’s Day weekend, atoll residents were treated to a display of the many talents of our local photographers. Over 300 photographs were open for public viewing on Sunday afternoon, and all day on Monday and Tuesday in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room of the Kwajalein High School. According to Dave Harris, the driving force behind this exhibit, “I wanted to provide a forum so all of the Kwajalein Atoll photographers could display their photographs to the public and at the same time, I wanted the public’s involvement in the initial selection of photographs for the 2006 Kwaj calendar. In this regard, we more than exceeded my expectations. We received almost 200 ballots Kwajalein Atoll Recreation category winner: "Sailboats at Rest" Kwajalein Atoll Nature winner: "Monet's Turtle Pond" Photographer: Kathy Kautzrecording votes in the ve different categories of Kwajalein Atoll Living; Recreation; Nature and Holidays. In addition, there was an Open category to show any photograph unrelated to the other categories.” Each of these winners will receive two copies of the 2006 Kwaj Calendar. Upon leaving the exhibit, the public was asked for their comments and many voiced their impressions as “What an incredible show! Please do this again,” “Great talent here on Kwajalein. Hope to see more displays in the future,” and “Wonderful and beautiful photos!” Harris expressed his appreciation for the help supplied by the people from Macy’s and Macy’s West in the installation and administration of this event. When asked if this will be an annual event, he replied, “With the proper support from the community – why not?” Kwajalein Atoll Living category winner: "Bikes at Night" Photographer: Sue Rosoff (professional)
