During those years, he and his fellow prisoners were subjected to unspeakable treatment. They were beaten, tortured, starved and denied medical treatment. All of the abuse was designed to break their spirits and force them to make statements that they were war criminals and America had sent them to kill women and children. McCain recounts in the book how the prisoners held together and took courage and strength from one another. They were determined not to be broken. McCain said he knew many a brave man in that prison. He recounted the story of one who he said was the bravest man he ever knew. The prisoners said the Pledge of Allegiance every day before their noon bowl of soup. They said it to a small American ag that Lt. Mike Christian had made from bits of cloth and fragments of prison garb and sewn to the inside of his shirt. He risked terrible punishment if discovered. Then Christian got caught. He was beaten and tortured hour after hour without pity. When the torture ended at last, Christian was thrown back into the cell. His fellow prisoners tried to render what aid they could to him. In the dimly lit, lthy cell, he laid with his eyes almost completely swollen shut, bones broken and joints dislocated. And as his comrades watched, Christian crawled to a loose block in the wall, got bits of cloth he had hidden there and with a bamboo needle began to make another American ag. When I hear all the talk about whether people should stand still and face the agpole during retreat or when Taps is played, I can’t help thinking about Christian and his brave and de ant act of heroism. I can’t help thinking of the 11-year-old son of Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith. President George W. Bush just presented him with the Medal of Honor his father was recommended for in Iraq. He will only have memories of his dad now. All around the world, people are willing to stomp, burn and spurn the American ag. They don’t need any help from us. We all have our opinions and I guess we’ve all made our decisions about how we will react to the bugle calls. I hope this will be the last I hear about it. I’d make a bet men like Mike Christian and Paul Ray Smith would support your right not to stand during retreat or Taps. After all, that’s what freedom is about. But I’d also bet that if they could see you honoring the ag and their comrades who have made the sacri ce, they might say thank you.

Saturday, April 9, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassKwajalein extends aid to re victims3(Photo by Nell Drumheller)A truckload of donated clothing and other items for victims of the Ebeye re is of oaded at Ebeye Wednesday. See DONATIONS, Page 8 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorA week after a re destroyed several structures on Ebeye, the barge Manassas carried a truck laden with donations to the displaced people. As soon as the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll community learned of the re, members began asking where they could donate products and money to help the Marshallese people. More than $10,000 in cash donations were collected as well as 20 bags of clothes, 13 bags of shoes, 20 bags of bedding, 10 bags of toiletries, 13 boxes of toys and 17 boxes of miscellaneous household goods according to Alan Taylor, Republic of the Marshall Islands Relations specialist. The cash and products were distributed in a small ceremony on Thursday afternoon at the Multi-Purpose Center on Ebeye. At the ceremony, Shirley Jajo spoke as a representative of the families who had lost their homes. She thanked the USAKA community for their generosity and said that the community would be in their prayers. She asked if USAKA could do anything to help the displaced families get new homes. According to Maj. David Coffey, USAKA Host Nations of cer, “There are excess trailers available. The problem is that we cannot just send them over to Ebeye without permission from land owners and a planned site, transportation and utility hook ups. Had local leaders been present during the donation ceremony we might have been able to resolve this issue already. My of ce would be happy to help coordinate such an initiative between all concerned parties and I will speak to the GRMI’s chief secretary on the subject.” Organizing the donations and getting them delivered was a major feat, which took the cooperation of many of ces. “Packing all donated goods into three used packing crates, getting the crates on the ‘excessed’ truck, onto the boat and getting the truck over to the Multi-Purpose Center on Ebeye,” summarizes part of the process according to Taylor. The truck which was used had been considered an excessed, or no longer functional according to Army standards, vehicle and will be donated to Kwajalein Atoll Local Government and was also used to help the families transport the donated goods to where they are living now. Taylor added that Mark Sakaio, of automotive, helped prepare the truck at lunchtime. Tusi Tagoilelagi, of packing and crating assisted in the packaging. “We were able to get Tusi’s assistance because shipping had a household goods delivery to make to Ebeye,” Taylor said. “We were able to get their goods over to Ebeye; they were able to help us of oad the donated goods. And thanks to the Marine Department for the ride over and providing some water to the thirsty residents waiting at the KADA ramp.” The Rev. Rick Funk, protestant chaplain, said “We are still receiving money and it can be brought to the chapel of ce and checks can be made out to Island Memorial Chapel. We are considering different ideas of how to spend it. We would like to spend it on housing. We would rather not receive any more goods. If people have items to donate, please call rst to nd out what the families need and to make sure we have the means to deliver it.” Nearly 70 people were left homeless by the blaze, according to Noda Lojkar, RMI ombudsman, the homeless people have found temporary residences with extended family members. Military installations are located around the globe and it is not unusual for military members and their families to help outside the gates of the installations. Coffey explained that local commanders have the authority, and in fact an obligation to assist when life or health is at risk. “However, what occurred in this instance was more of a community-based effort to provide assistance with USAKA providing logistical support. KRS took a lot of initiative in sending rst-response evaluators and then sending a re truck and should be given credit, and then it was the community that pushed donations through the chapel to those in need without even being asked. The outpouring of concern and support was immediate, sincere, and spontaneous and for that reason meant as much to the victims of the re as the donations themselves. For those of us who were privileged enough to be able to represent the USAKA community at the actual presentation of the donations let me say that it was a well organized but tremendously emotional event for donors and recipients alike and the gratitude was genuine and complete,” he said. Funk added, “I believe we should get to know them [our Ebeye neighbors.] I have discovered that the best Lending a helping hand


Saturday, April 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Lauren Traweek Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club S hortly after the ladies returned from the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club Majuro Exchange weekend in February, Kwajalein Atoll’s Leroj Seagull Kabua James asked to meet with several representatives of the YYWC. She had an idea to help promote friendship between the Marshallese on Ebeye and Kwaj residents, and to show off a bit of Ebeye’s best assets, their beautiful school children. James proposed a day of touring schools, shopping and lunch at Bob’s, a local restaurant. Several womens’ clubs under the umbrella of the “mother club” Rukjaleen pulled the day together with tours, great food, songs and general conviviality.Although 15 women signed up, only nine of us met at the dock security checkpoint to take the 8:30 a.m. landing craft, mechanized. Easter Monday. Holiday con icts and an island dance recital prevented many from attending. After a rather rocky ride, we landed and were met by our friends Lynn Lanej, Jabkol Harry, Kiorong Sam, Lise Sheet and others. Next, James joined us and had marshaled two airport-type buses to ferry us around the island. Our rst stop was the public school kindergarten. It used to be the Headstart Program, but is now run by the Republic of the Marshall Islands government. They have 10 classrooms and 190 students, or about 20 students per class. These children get


Saturday, April 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 who participated and especially thanked all the patient husbands, boyfriends and sons for their assistance in setting up and driving us around (and letting us spend the day together). Following too much food and a whole lot of fun, we did a bit more shopping on our way to Gugeegue to see the Queen of Peace High School. Sheet and I spent the slow drive along the causeway gabbing away about our histories. I sure was surprised to learn she and James had gone to high school in Palau, and she went on to college and did a stint in Boise, Idaho. Talk about culture shock; Sheet got off the plane in January! Before I knew it, we had arrived at the truly peaceful campus of Queen of Peace. The Rev. Leonard Hacker, Roman Catholic priest, had designed and built the school to take full advantage of the unobstructed views and breezes that surround Gugeegue. Classes were out for Spring break, but we met and chatted with two Fijian teachers who live on site and toured the classrooms. The teachers told us about the lack of computers and internet experience their students had to live with. The donated computers were years out of date and no longer functioning. Always, in any school we visited, supplies, books and computers are in short supply or non-existent. On the LCM ride home, I had time to wonder about my tour here in the Marshalls and what I hoped to bring away with me. I thought about all the residents of Kwajalein who don’t participate with the exchange programs or even make friends on a one-to-one basis with people from our host nation. Speaking only from my personal experience, I truly believe that if people would extend themselves a bit, their time here would be exponentially richer. If you have a passion about education, you can donate your time on Ebeye as a teacher or an aide, even involving your children. If you can’t spare the time to travel to Ebeye, you can always join the YYWC and volunteer at the Mic Shop or the Bargain Bazaar. This year, the Bargain Bazaar provided $20,000 to the schools on Ebeye, through grants from the YYWC Education Assistance Committee. Try spending the morning shopping on Ebeye and having lunch off Kwaj. Perhaps you would like to sponsor an adult sports team from Ebeye. Mary Harris-Wiehe can be reached at 51201 for the details. Queen of Peace, the Catholic Church, has English services on Saturday nights at 7 p.m. You could also go early on Sunday mornings and walk around until you hear the wonderful singing resonating from the churches. Follow your ears until you nd a service in progress. Above all, try a friendship on for size – you might just nd one that ts!their foundation here – and will soon start a reading program. The classrooms are cheerful and clean with nice white tile oors and all the children love to say “yokwe!” to the funny re-belle looking in their classrooms. We walked over to the Seventh Day Adventists Ebeye School and were given a tour by Karen Schin, principal. She explained they have an overcrowding situation as they lost their roof for ve classrooms during the windstorms in November. Although they are church af liated, the school relies solely on tuition ($55/month for the elementary students and $65/month for the high school students) for their income, plus donations. Their teachers are volunteers who work for room and utilities plus $250/ month for food and clothing. Again, the children seemed to be thriving even though they are bursting at the seams. Jabro Private School was our next stop. Kiorong Sam is the principal for the 334 students who attend grades K – 12. Shelley Corbett and her sixthgrade daughter Renee are some of the ve or so volunteers from Kwaj who help at Jabro one day a week. Their class is kindergartners who are learning things like the colors, days, months and holidays in English. This year, Renee hid eggs for the children and helped them celebrate Easter. Shelley says she often comes home from Ebeye, feeling she has received more in love and smiles than she has given in lessons. Ebeye Christian Elementary School is the oldest school on Ebeye, built in the late 50s. It is a two-story blue and white stucco building with balustrades and a bright airy feeling. We were greeted by several teachers who presented us with gorgeous Marshallese necklaces; each one prettier than the last. We toured the classrooms and admired the breezy second-story views and the children hamming it up for photos in their purple uniforms. The school is adding a grade a year, to create a new high school, and is up to the 11th grade this year. In between seeing the schools, we shopped our way around the island. Tired and hungry, we said good-bye to several of our group who had to return to Kwaj before lunch. Lunch was a delicious buffet with chicken, rice, sandwiches, a big green salad, fresh sh and a broccoli beef dish. After lunch, we were serenaded by the various clubs, all decked out in matching dresses accompanied by the swinging Mon La Mike Band. Each woman received a coconut candy lei and a beautiful ower for her hair. Mon La Mike’s band kept us entertained after the speeches and introductions by the club’s of cers. James welcomed us and thanked the women Ebeye children work on donated computers at Queen of Peace Catholic School. (Photos by Cris Lindborg)


Saturday, April 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Inset: Ciara Swanby practices proper hand signals at last year's Bike Rodeo.Everyone needs to practice safe bike ridingBike safety rules By Nell M. Drumheller EditorCyclists on the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll must follow the rules outlined in USAKA/RTS Reg. 190-5. According to Kwajalein Police Department Chief Dennis Johnson, “The following laws and regulations are provided to assist everyone in having a better understanding of the rules of the road.” In addition, to encourage the community to abide by and support these laws and regulations, the KPD and members of the Community Services department will issue certi cates, good for a free movie rental at the Tape Escape or Bakery Dollars, whenever they see bicyclists obeying the traf c laws. To redeem the free movie rental, individuals only need to take their certificate to the Central Police Station, Building 807, and they will receive the coupon for the free movie rental or Bakery Dollars. This joint effort between KPD and Kwajalein Range Services is to promote bicycle safety and responsibly. “A bicycle is a vehicle operated solely by pedals and propelled by human power,” Johnson said.• Head Phones: The wearing of headphones/ earphones of radios, tape and compact disk players/ recorders on Army installation roads and streets is prohibited while operating a vehicle. • Stop signs: If there is no bicyclist yield sign adjacent to a stop sign, then all bicyclists and vehicles must stop at the stop sign, look for traf c, yield if necessary and then proceed with caution. Good examples of this are the two stop signs adjacent to the runway. Bicyclists and vehicles alike must stop. • Yield signs and bicyclist yield signs: Riders must slow down, look for traf c and proceed with caution when emerging from a yield intersection, alley or re lane. Bicyclists must yield the rightof-way to pedestrians, motor vehicles and other bikes at all stop and yield signs. • Emergency vehicles: Riders must move to the side of the road and stop for any emergency vehicle approaching with sirens and or ashing lights. • Impeding traf c: Bicyclists may not stop in a traf c lane or impede the ow of traf c other than to yield to other vehicles, bikes or pedestrians at a stop or yield intersection. Don’t “hang out” in the middle of the road. • Lane usage: Like any other vehicle, bicyclists can only ride on the right side of the road and no more than two abreast when no other motor vehicle traf c is present. When other vehicles are passing, bikes must be ridden in single le only. • Clinging: Bicyclists (and people on skateboards and rollerblades) may not cling to other bikes or motor vehicles. • Passengers: The carrying of passengers on bikes is prohibited except when transporting a child in an infant pouch or properly attached child safety seat. Bicycles speci cally designed with two saddles such as a tandem bike are acceptable. Transporting a child in a basket or in the rider’s arms is both illegal and extremely dangerous. Riding on the handlebars is also unsafe and prohibited. • Speeding: Bicyclists must operate at speeds that are reasonable for the existing conditions. Speed is a critical factor in many riding accidents. • Safety equipment: Lights are required when riding south of 9th Street and along the entire perimeter unpaved road. However, all riders are strongly encouraged to use lights and reflectors at all times when riding at night. Bicyclists riding at night without lights and re ectors are extremely dif cult to see. Children and new riders are also encouraged to wear a properly tted bike helmet. • Signals: Bicyclists must use hand and arm signals when turning or stopping. To signal a left turn, position the left arm straight out from the shoulder horizontal to the ground. Right turns are signaled by again extending the left arm horizontally from the shoulder while at the same time bending the elbow at a 90-degree angle so that the forearm and hand are pointed straight up. The signal for stopping is extending the left arm straight out from the shoulder and bending the elbow at a 90-degree angle straight down. Each bicyclist must keep at least one hand upon the handlebars at all times.


Saturday, April 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass“ 7By Mig Owens Assistant EditorOn Sunday, air conditioning in the Coral Bachelor Quarters broke, affecting the facility’s 63 residents. Though relief arrived Tuesday afternoon as the system was back up and running, Lloyd Jordan, Logistics Program Support manager, said problems still exist and the system is not yet completely fixed. The repairman responding to the call at approximately 9:15 p.m. Sunday discovered that the chill-water pump at the BQ was not operating. A team, which included electricians and a plumber, proceeded to troubleshoot the problem, installing a transformer that night and a new pump Monday morning. Because the pump still failed to run, further work was conducted on the pump contacter Monday; a situation that required rewiring. Troubleshooting continued throughout the day, and on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., the system was back on line. Resident of two years, Dave Harris, said that he coped, but would have insisted on being given a room at the Kwaj Lodge had the air conditioning not been fixed Tuesday. “In situations like that, it is very necessary that the people responsible for the repair keep all affected residents informed of the status,” Harris said. “They can do this by using the roller, the radio, the KRS Newsline and by posting fliers in the affected building.” Jordan explained that this is the first incident of its kind in 13 years and that no standard practice instructions exist to direct how this type of thing should be handled. “There’s no precedent or procedure, and though repairmen were working on the problem, there was a lack of communication,” he said. After looking at all the information gathered, Jordan said that there are ways in which the current system can be improved. “We were notified through the fire department after-duty hours and a stand-by person was called. A lot of it was troubleshooting. We responded, located the parts and worked until it was done. They were there and followed it through after almost a day and a half of trial and error,” Jordan said. “In the future, we’ll try to notify BQ residents, though it’s hard to know completion times.” Sue Rosoff has called the Coral BQ her home since 1999, but said that she found an alternate place to sleep, as the temperature of her room at one point reached 87 degrees. “I tried sleeping here Sunday night but woke up at 2:45 a.m. hot to the core – I had to go outside to cool off. I was also sneezing because of the severe mold smell in the hallway that had started as soon as Sunday evening when I got back from the Spring Break music around 10 p.m.” Though able to open her window about six inches, cross ventilation was not possible said Rosoff, prompting her, as well as other residents, to purchase fans. According to Norm Black, Environmental Safety and Health manager, mold is a fungus and it lives off of organic matter, while mildew is simply formed by the mold. Fans can assist in keeping residents cooler and help in the prevention of mold, which results in mildew. He added that mold and mildew are spores that depend on differing combinations of temperature and humidity to grow. “Clean up any standing water, look for obvious signs of mold and mildew and any moist clothing should be put into a sealed plastic bag or laundered,” he said. Black said that, because temperatures here are reasonable and rarely go above 89 degrees in nonair-conditioned facilities, they are extremely moderate, though at higher humidity, people’s tolerance decreases. Air movement, such as that from a fan, will make it feel cooler. Because of the intermittent status of the air conditioning in the Coral BQ, Black said, “If you’re feeling ill, go to the hospital and report it. If there is a maintenance problem, ensure that it is reported,” he said. He added that other things residents can do is “drink eight glasses of water a day and try to keep windows covered as much as possible to block the sun.” Rosoff said that the situation brought to light the fact that there is currently no one representing residents concerns as there once was when there existed a Bachelor’s Advisory Committee. “Luckily it seems that a lot of people had alternate places to go, but what if they hadn’t? What if it still weren’t fixed? Who is the person we go to for this kind of situation? What is the plan for people if they are displaced by something like this?” Jordan said that the situation has prompted a look into an SPI or formal “what do we do” policy or procedure, which would include options for relocation, though they are limited.AC breakdown overheats residentsFeeling hot, hot, hotI tried sleeping here Sunday night but woke up at 2:45 a.m. hot to the core I had to go outside to cool off.— Sue Rosoff, Coral BQ resident“

This is generally much more effective than large projects.” Coffey said, “This was one of the most heartening things I have seen during my tenure here and it makes me proud of the USAKA community and proud to be an American. Despite politics and rhetoric, people all over the world, including Ebeye, know that Americans are good neighbors and can be counted on in times of need. I regularly brief visitors about the value that USAKA provides to the Marshallese, but I haven’t found a way to quantify the love and respect our community regularly demonstrates for our hosts and neighbors. I think that besides working the trailer issue, the best that we can do to help is to work with the Marshallese to improve their capacity to respond to emergencies and to continue to be good neighbors should the needs ever outweigh their capacity to respond again.” The Rich is temporarily out of service due to technical issues.Tonight 7:30 p.m., Yuk — Blade Trinity (R)7 p.m., Roi — National Treasure (PG-13)Sunday 7:30 p.m., Yuk — Hide and Seek (R) 7 p.m., Roi — Meet The Fockers (PG-13) Monday7:30 p.m., Yuk — Blade Trinity (R)Wednesday 7 p.m., ARC — Hide and Seek (R) All movies subject to change with shipments.

Perched in the sheltering limbs of a tree on the perimeter of the jobsite was an expectant mother, protecting a solitary egg. For days, the construction grew ever closer to her sanctuary, until nally, trenching had encircled her leafy haven. Never wavering, this proud mother-to-be protected her egg even as the roar of machinery was within feet of her. San Juan employees spared no effort to ensure that the impact of construction was as minimal as possible, and are proud to announce that the new arrival is doing well and appears ready for ight any day!
