Within 24 hours, phones were ringing off the hook and people from our community were calling to nd out what they could do to help. Donations of food, clothing and money came raining down upon us. Thank you to the Rev. Rick Funk, Protestant chaplain, who quickly went into action to collect these items and became the point of contact for this mission. I was impressed with the speed and precision of the many of ces a nd volunteers involved in coordinating, organizing and delivering these donations. Funk, with the aid of many volunteers, was able to collect, sort C. A. Murray, I am very concerned that the bugle calls are causing you signi cant stress. You obviously have no allegiance to any organization, school, town, team, country or rock group. If you did, you would appreciate the Army’s Bugle Call, and respect it as a Stateside reader sounds off on bugle callstraditional salute to those whose lives have made your current situation possible! Perhaps, if you’d take some of your valuable time to learn, you’d understand the history of this island on which you are making a living. If you would do this, you’d understand why it is important to respect traditions, particularly those associated with sacri ce of American lives, for our collective freedoms and the opportunity to live and work in this place. At the very least, you should abide with the old adage that says, ‘ when in Rome, do as the Romans.’ Your comments relative to “Showing allegiance to a water tower when the Bugle Call is played,” is an indication to me that you are devoid of any understanding of tradition, history, and the efforts of others, that have allowed See CALLS, Page 6During a most recent departmental safety meeting at Property Management, Patrick Zurick, Kwajalein Range Service Health inspector, addressed our group on food-borne illnesses. Living on Kwaj offers its’ own daily challenges, however, food-borne illnesses can be highly reduced by what he suggested: hand washing. Cleanliness and, mostly, common sense helps, too.

Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3By Mig Owens Assistant EditorWith intentions of building on what he calls a “solid base of technical and service support in the midst of a changing environment,” John Pickler took the reins as president of Kwajalein Range Services on Wednesday. The position changeover is the second since the contract was awarded to KRS in March 2003. Pickler will step in for Ike Richardson who heads to Frederick, Md., Bechtel’s corporate headquarters, following almost two years at the KRS helm. Pickler said that his impression, since touching down on Kwajalein April 14, has been completely positive. “I can’t remember anyplace where I’ve been better received in my military or civilian career,” he said. “The reception, environment, the work conditions and even the uniform have been better than almost anybody could have possibly described.” The opportunity to come to Kwajalein rst presented itself in the latter part of Pickler’s Iraq tour. He was Kwaja lein Range Services hails new, says farewell to former president in Iraq for just under a year and a half, making the time away from his Tennessee family close to two and a half years, considering his prior Bechtel assignment in northern Virginia. “I wondered how this might t with that. Once I got back from Iraq and realized not only was this the kind of assignment I’d want in an almost ideal location, it would also afford my wife and I to be physically located together; then it became almost a no-brainer,” he said. In Iraq, Pickler served as deputy program director for Bechtel’s U.S. Agency for International Development Iraq Infrastructure Reconstruction Project. As such, he developed and supervised Bechtel’s overall security program and conducted essential project coordination and integration with the Coalition Provisional Authority, U.S. military, Iraqi provisional government, non-governmental organizations and international organizations, among others. Before his assignment in Iraq, Pickler was manager of strategic programs and homeland security for Bechtel in McLean, Va. He came to the private sector following a career in the U.S. Army, where he retired as lieutenant general in January 2002. In his nal active duty position, he was the Director of the Army Staff. Pickler said his most significant accomplishment during his 36 and a half-year military career was “the ability to go to a wide variety of jobs and make a difference wherever I went.” He explained that a slogan followed closely by one of his superiors is one that he believes in himself – mission rst, people always. “We’ve got a very important mission here in support of USAKA/RTS [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/ Reagan Test Site,] and at the same time take care of the people that live and work here…What I want to do is make a positive difference here and continue to support and provide worldclass technical and support services to USAKA/ RTS and the SMDC [Space Missile Defense Command] mission,” he said. Pickler expressed his belief in the fact that the best organizations are ones that can adapt to, embrace and thrive on change and cause change to work in their favor. He said that he is still learning what changes USAKA and SMDC have in mind for the future. “I think that we certainly have budget challenges that we have to surmount and at the same time continue to provide the kind of quality services to our customer and quality of life to our community that they deserve,” he said. “I think that we have to keep in mind that this is a remote location and it deserves special attention as a result. I intend to give it all of mine.” The new KRS president describes his management style as inclusive and decisive. “I keep an open door and applaud people who are innovative and imaginative in their approach to work and their challenges,” Pickler said. “I appreciate problems that come with solutions and I enjoy working with competent people.” Though this is a unique environment, Pickler explained that he has worked before in communities that have been somewhat remote, somewhat isolated and in a foreign country. “I feel like I’ve had some opportunities in this kind of environment and hope to bring my past experiences to this location,” he said. Pickler admits that his new position is decidedly different from his military background. “We’re in support of the military here and I’m very comfortable with that role. I’m ready to work for somebody else.” While on Kwajalein, Pickler said he intends to enjoy the water and try new things. “I’ve always been a watersports enthusiast and one of the things I haven’t done is scuba dive,” he said. “I’ve been primarily a fresh-water person…I look forward to building upon my water sports and learning how to scuba dive and appreciate snorkeling and the other water sports that are so obvious here.” Pickler said that at a young age he traded golf for water sports, which he could better enjoy with his family in his limited leisure time. Now, he said he and his wife, Karen, might take John PicklerSee KRS, Page 4I think that we have to keep in mind that this is a remote location and it deserves special attention as a result. I intend to give it all of mine. John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Service president“ ”


Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4this time to “learn a little bit of golf together.” Restating his professional goal of building upon a solid foundation, Pickler said that he looks to “improve in every category we possibly can and meet and exceed the needs of our customer. “Safety and security, as they were in Iraq and as they were in my military service, have always been synonymous top priorities with me and I believe that everything we can do to provide a safe and secure environment for our workforce and for our people here should be foremost in our minds. To me, safety and security are part of taking care of people,” he said. The Picklers have three grown children, one of whom is parent to their four grandchildren. Their youngest son is deployed overseas with the Army Rangers, his third deployment in four years of military duty. “I guess we feel comfortable that all three children seem to be happy in their separate locations and environments. That makes us feel good,” he said. “We do have a close family and we will miss them. We stay in touch telephonically and electronically and look forward to them joining us certainly in Hawaii, if not here.” As the Picklers settle in after what is their thirty-second move in almost 40 years, they want to convey “how truly honored we are to be a part of this community and how much we’re looking forward to serving with the people who work here and who live here.” In addition, they give special thanks to their predecessors. “Ike and Donna Richardson have done so very much to make our move to Kwajalein smooth.”Richardson departsOutgoing president, Richardson, shared his thoughts with the Hourglass as well, as he heads to his next adventure where he’ll work on three or four different projects, both new and existing, and eventually be assigned to lead one of them. Though battling mixed emotions about leaving Kwajalein, Richardson said he certainly wants to get closer to his “bride” and looks forward to being only one plane ride away instead of two. Donna is working in San Francisco. “I would not have minded spending another six months or a year here, but it appears that the best thing for the company is to rotate in the twoyear blocks, “ he said. “So, this was the best for everybody.” Change is good, Richardson explained, because it brings fresh, new ideas and new ways of doing business and it keeps raising the bar. “In the last two years, I think the community would agree that we’ve raised the bar from where it was and I expect John to raise the bar even higher as he teams with USAKA/RTS members,” he said. Richardson added that while on island, he’s met some terri c people and made some lifelong friends. “Kwaj is not only unique, but kind of beckons you back and I think Donna and I will be back if we can get somebody to sponsor us for at least a twoweek vacation,” he said. During his tenure on Kwajalein, Richardson followed through on a commitment expressed in an October 2003 interview with the Hourglass to put a focus on safety. The results of those efforts were celebrated recently by all employees at the Safety Celebrations on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. Work toward improving the company’s safety record in the rst six months involved bringing in numerous trainers, among other things. Richardson said it took about a year to start to see a difference, which was a little longer than he expected, but time he said was necessary to get everybody focused in that area. “It was really in August and September of 2004 that we started to see a difference,” he said. “We’ve gone 18 weeks now without any accidents whatsoever…we can’t nd a record of any time anyone in the history of RTS/USAKA has gone more than 60 days. So this is a true milestone.” Another goal Richardson worked toward was setting standards in an effort to treat all employees equally. Three hundred standard operating procedures have gone into effect in the past 21 months to that end. “We now have a baseline of how people should be treated, what the company policies are, so that we’re not doing things differently on a day-to-day basis,” he said. “There are always going to be some out-ofpolicy decisions because no regulation that you write is going to cover KRS, from Page 3In the last two years, I think the community would agree that we’ve raised the bar from where it was and I expect John to raise the bar even higher as he teams with USAKA/RTS members.

Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 Space is important to U.S. national security In addition to normal mission operations, radars on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur track foreign launches and perform space surveillance. By Gerry J. Gilmore American Forces Press ServiceAlmost 70 years ago, actor Buster Crabbe rst portrayed space swashbuckler Flash Gordon, battling Ming the Merciless to protect Earth. Few theatergoers then would have imagined that space would become an important component of national defense. Flash’s adventures on the planet Mongo were fantasy, but mankind conquered space on July 21, 1969, when American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the rst man to walk on the moon. Today “the importance of the space mission to our national security cannot be overstated,” Marine Gen. James E. Cartwright said in his April 4 testimony before the Strategic Forces subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Cartwright heads the U.S. Strategic Command at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., which oversees U.S. military global strategic planning, including nuclear deterrence and space operations. In June 2002, U.S. Space Command and U.S. STRATCOM were merged. The U.S. economy and Americans’ quality of life and national defense, Cartwright observed, “are all linked to our freedom of action in space.” Today’s orbiting satellites, he pointed out, help conduct routine nancial activities such as automatic teller machines or international currency and stock market transactions. The telecommunications and transportation industries and federal, state and municipal governments are also highly dependent on space operations, the general noted. Airliners, ships, trains, trucks, police, re departments, and ambulances, he said, rely on spacebased global positioning systems to enhance efforts to safely deliver people, goods and services. However, potential U.S. adversaries, Cartwright noted, are aware of America’s dependence on space for commerce and security. That’s why, he said, it’s important to “protect our space assets and our ability to operate freely in––and from ––space.” And, while America currently leads the world in space technology, Cartwright noted that competitors “are gaining on us.” Cartwright pointed to the need to revamp America’s space surveillance systems that are responsible for scanning the outer-atmospheric region for potential terrestrialbased threats, like missiles, and non-terrestrial-based threats, like asteroids. Today’s space-launched payloads, he pointed out, are more numerous and smaller in size than those launched in years past. Also, current surveillance systems were created in the latter part of the 20th century and weren’t designed “to detect or track the current magnitude of new, smaller objects, including micro-satellites,” Cartwright said. He added that this situation enhances “the chances of collisions” and threatens U.S. manned space ight programs. DoD, other U.S. government agencies, and American industry “must do a better job of leveraging the capabilities of our space assets,” Cartwright said. “We must also maintain the ability to protect our own space assets and capabilities, both actively and passively, while denying our adversaries the military use of space ––at the time and place of our choosing,” he concluded. Flash Gordon would have understood.


Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6There are signs throughout the PDR advising people how to properly use the serving utensils. So, please don’t eat in the food line! This is not your home kitchen/dining room. Can you not wait just a minute to sit down and enjoy your food all at once? What gets me is people, who, in reality, should know much better, come in, eat through the salad line, ll a take out with hot food and eat it while walking out the door. Disgusting. Where are your manners? Set an example! Kudos to Zurick for a great presentation. C. J. Switzer – germ warriorMANNERS, from Page 2 CALL, from Page 2you to assume a role on this island. Please reconsider your comments about the Bugle Calls. Take it upon yourself to understand why the colonel holds to this tradition. Call the of ce and request an appointment with the colonel and an explanation of the Bugle Calls. If after a visit with the colonel, and some personal re ection, you still feel abused by the Bugle Calls, then I suggest you book the earliest ight you can get, back to SFO.Dan Lindseth Choteau, Montana every possible situation. I think we’re 90 percent there.” Richardson said that there are still areas for improvement, but he’s satis ed with the way that the team has worked together. He said another of the team’s accomplishments was the ability to “change some ef ciencies, make the dayto-day processes – the business processes – more ef cient.” One of the big things that came out of that accomplishment, he said, was that the company was a ble to under run the contract, despite a 20-million-dollar budget cut. “We were able to pay, for the rst time ever that we can nd, a bonus to every employee on an equal basis. I think that was a good step,” he said. “We have a plan now to increase all the green circle people and I’m sure that John Pickler will follow through with that in Novem-KRS, from Page 4ber as we bring the second third up to where I think they should be paid.” The fact that the company was able to under run the contract and still pay a bonus, Richardson stated, is a tribute to the teamwork that has been engendered here. He added that KRS is on track to repeat its stellar performance this year, despite a 10-million-dollar cut. The challenges now, as well as in the next three years, Richardson said, include relocating KRS employees to Huntsville, Ala., as discussed at the last Town Hall. “We’re going to have a small relocation this year, we’re going to have a slightly larger relocation next year, and then an even larger relocation the third year when the ber comes in,” Richardson said. “The ber is what will allow a lot of the mission people to relocate to the states.” Richardson said that KRS is negotiating with the government what the ‘relocation package’ will look like so that there will be some incentives to move, not only increased pay, but increased bene ts to offset costs that may be incurred. “Some will move over the summer to ease the burden on the families and that’s going to be a challenge,” he said. Richardson explained that within the next 45 days, 20 to 30 positions will be identi ed, so that people affected will have enough time to make their decisions and plan accordingly, enabling those with families to move over the summer. “We have a road map ahead that we will be sharing with the community because we want them to be part of the solution,” Richardson said. Earth Day is Monday. A variety of activities are planned. At a recent Town Hall meeting an audience member was concerned about trash around the bachelor quarters. “If we all pick up 10 pieces of trash as a part of Earth Day it will make a huge difference,” said Mark Owens, Kwajalein Range Services deputy site manager.

Saturday, April 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7A range operation is scheduled for Wednesday. Caution times are from 7:01 p.m. through 3:01 a.m. Thursday. In conjunction with this operation, a caution area will exist within the Kwajalein Atoll. The caution area is bounded on the north by Boked Island on the east reef and Yabbernohr Island on the west reef. On the south, the area is bounded by a line drawn north of Bigej Island on the east reef to a point at latitude of 54.2N, longitude 167 45.8E, then to a point at latitude 08 52.8N, longitude 167.45.8E and then to a point north of the high tide mark on Ninni Island on the west reef. Bigej Island, including the inner reef, is speci cally excluded and is not a part of the mid-atoll corridor. Illeginni is designated as an evacuation island. All mid-atoll corridor islands are designated as sheltered islands. Additional areas speci ed outside the mid-atoll area designated as caution areas, see maps.Range mission set for Wednesday In order to ensure clearance of non-mission support personnel from the mid-atoll corridor by the window opening time, Kwajalein Police Department island clearance procedures will begin at approximately 7:30 a.m. Sunday and continue until evacuation has been accomplished. Egress of all air and seacraft will be required when requested by authorized clearance personnel. Subsequent to lagoon clearance, the hazard area will be in effect until mission completion.In the event of a mission slip, the caution times and areas will be in effect for the following days: From 7:01 p.m. Thursday through 3:01 a.m. Friday. From 7:01 p.m. Friday through 3:01 a.m. Saturday.Questions regarding the above safety requirements for this mission should be directed to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Command Safety Directorate, Range Safety Of cer at 52477. By Elizabeth Davie ReporterThe School Advisory Counsel met Wednesday night to discuss topics such as the revised curriculum, School Improvement Plan and the Ebeye kindergarten selection plans. Questions from parents were also addressed. The rst action reviewed was the revised curriculum for health and physical education, library, media, computer and technology instruction. The rst reading of the action was done at the March meeting. Dan Frazier, school superintendent, stated they had not gotten any input from the community. The vote was taken and the curriculum will be recommended to the commander. Next order of business was the School Improvement Plan. This meeting was the rst reading of the plan, the second and nal reading will be at the May meeting. Frazier talked brie y about the plan explaining the main focus of improving reading comprehension for the elementary grades and improving research skills for the highschoolers. Frazier explained the steps to achieve this improvement. The elementary children will be doing a lot more oral reading and they will also be using computer assisted instructions. All-day kindergarten was also something Frazer noted as possibly being used to improve reading skills. As for the high school, they will be using online resources to better their research skills, as well as having their time logged to keep track of the time spent researching. Frazier concluded by saying “that is the School Improvement Plan in a nut shell.” When asked by Maj. Craig Holton, council chairperson, what the status of the Ebeye Kindergarten Plans were, he replied “A very brief report this time.” According to Frazier, May 2 is slated to be the day Ebeye children will be selected to enter the kindergarten class for the next school year. Ebeye will be sending their “best and brightest” over to the selections board, 25 children and their parents will be screened and interviewed. Only ve students will be selected. Once all the actions were discussed the oor was open for the public to voice any comments or concerns they may have. Bonnie Compton, attendee, voiced her concern about the policy on “bullies” on the elementary campus. Frazier assured Compton that there is a no tolerance policy and that children were being disciplined accordingly. Allison Villarreal, attendee, commented that the parents of the “victim” should be noti ed of the actions taken. Frazier reminded everyone that students can not be discussed with anyone but their parents therefore the “victim’s” parents would not be told what the repercussions were and assured everyone the policy was being implemented for the children. All-day kindergarten was the last topic to be addressed, Frazier said, “the ball is still in KRS’ court.” He went on the say there is a money issue and he requested an answer by May 3. If no response is given by then the decision will be made to keep half-day kindergarten. The next SAC meeting will be 7 p.m., May 18 in the Seitz Elementary music room.New curriculum voted on in SAC meeting
