On this day we pause to re ect upon the extraordinary men and women who understood the nobility of service to country, answered the call to duty, and made the ultimate sacri ce. They came from all walks of life, from every state across America, and they pledged to cherish and protect our country from all enemies. In each con ict throughout our history, they stepped forward in the NationÂ’s time of need, prepared to sacri ce their life in service to our Nation. Memorial Day is set aside so that one day each year we may formally give thanks to the servicemen and servicewomen who paid the price of our liberty with their blood. It is a solemn day when we recognize that we live in a great Nation where brave men and women have fought and died to preserve freedom for all of us. It is our duty to protect that freedom through our own honorable citizenship and service. American Soldiers march through time in a ghostly column from Lexington to Gettysburg, from the hedgerows of Europe to the islands of the Paci c. In cemeteries around the world, rows of white marble headstones mark the nal resting place of our comrades. Their lives were cut short, and we mourn with their families. Yet we celebrate their spirit, for they placed service to our Nation above personal safety. Their sacri ces to protect freedom embody the noblest attributes of humankind. Today we are again involved in a struggle against the forces of extremism and violence. As Soldiers, you have answered the call to duty, and you are performing magni cently. America supports you as you go in harmÂ’s way. You re ect AmericaÂ’s values as you serve our society, and are the best citizens our Nation has to offer. Remember each day as you do your duty that you stand on the shoulders of those who served before you. The legacy of our fallen comrades lives on through your actions. God bless each and every one of you and your families, and God bless America. Francis J. Harvey, Secretary of the Army Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, United States Army, chief of staffSgt. Maj. Kenneth O.

Wednesday, June 1, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassBy Mig Owens Assistant editorFor Sarah Greenbaum, grade ve, and Ann-Marie Hepler, grade three, the moon and the stars will soon seem within reach. The pair has been awarded U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Association 2005 Space Camp scholarships. The girls will receive one week at Space Camp at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. July 3-8, roundtrip airfare and transportation, a Space Camp ight suit and clothing package and a phone card and spending cash.Selection was based on grades achieved in school as well as essays that conveyed the elementary students’ interest in science and space. Among the essay questions was, “What experiment would you like to conduct in space?” “Should there be ‘space tourists?” and “Should we stop ying shuttle missions because of the danger?”“The scholarship generated excitement among the kids,” Dan Frazier, superintendent Kwajalein Schools said, adding that many inquired of him when the announcement would be made. Now, he said that the families of the girls receiving the scholarship are excited, both planning to accompany their children to Huntsville. For Greenbaum, attending Space Camp is a chance to answer some of her more burning questions. 3 3Lunch program bene ts Ebeye students Healthy body, healthy mind Elementary students to attend Space CampAnn-Marie Hepler By Mig Owens Assistant editorFifty students from Ebeye who attend Kwajalein’s elementary and junior/senior high schools during the 2005-2006 school year will receive free boxed lunches as a direct result of the generosity of individuals and organizations. The program began two years ago by Kwajalein Range Services as a way to give back to the Marshallese community and continues today. Lunches are prepared at Caf Paci c and delivered to the schools. At present, the lunches consist of a sandwiches, chips, fruit and vegetables, with drinks provided by the students. Dining Services plans to get together with students at the beginning of the school year in hopes of introducing more variety. “We’ll meet with the customers and take a look at the menus, keeping in mind the nutritional value of the meals,” Steve Cummings, Dining Services manager, said. According to Dan Frazier, school superintendent, the boxed lunch program is important because there is strong evidence that good nutrition helps with learning, retention and improves a child’s overall health. “A well-balanced meal is a way to combat some of the health problems that go with poverty,” Frazier said. “It’s been well received. Not only do the kids have lunch, if they have leftovers they are often taken home to be shared with family and friends.” Students participating in the program eat, play games and watch movies in a classroom designated as a lunchroom. Diane Peters, administrative assistant at the elementary school, sometimes skips her own lunch to ll in as “lunch lady” when needed. Peters said, “I think they are thankful, glad to have the opportunity and grateful for the consideration.” KRS is seeking boxed lunch sponsors for Marshallese students for the 2005-2006 school year. The cost is $180 per student. If you would like to help ll the need, contact Loretta Childers or Diane Peters at George Seitz Elementary School at 53601. Or, send your check, made payable to KRS, to P.O. Box 53 by July 30. “We’re asking people to donate once again,” Frazier said, adding his thanks to this past year’s sponsors. “It’s not only an act of hospitality but can affect a child’s learning and well being.” “I want to learn more about why there’s no gravity in space and more about what they’re doing at the space station, where and how people might live there and what kinds of foods they eat in space,” she said.For Hepler, who attended a similar camp in Houston, it’s another opportunity to quench her thirst for knowledge about space, which for her began in the second grade. “I hope to learn what it’s going to feel like to be an astronaut and nd out about all of the experiments that they do,” Hepler explained. Frazier said that there were a number of students he considered terri c candidates for this award and added that it’s nice to be able to offer this opportunity to kids on Kwajalein. “It’s important because direct support from SMDC [Space and Missile Defense Command] of schools is one of the more unique programs. There are only six sites in the world that get to participate,” Frazier said. Space Camp scholarships awarded by ASMDA total 15 this year. They are open to children age nine to 11 of a parent currently assigned to SMDC, Program Executive Of ce Missiles and Space, United States Strategic Command and Ground-based Midcourse Defense Joint Program Of ce, Huntsville including matrix personnel.

Wednesday, June 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Memorial Day celebration honors AmericaÂ’sservicemembers who gave their lives for freedom By Nell M.

Wednesday, June 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 be a part of the ceremony observing Memorial Day, “when we pause to re ect, and most importantly, to honor the memories and the sacri ces of those who have lost their lives ghting for this great country of ours, and for the ideals of freedom and democracy throughout the world.” Memorial Day began as a day to honor those who lost their lives during the American Civil War. Pickler said that U.S. President Abraham Lincoln said on the elds of Gettysburg, Penn., “We cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here, have hallowed it far above our poor power to add or detract.” As Lincoln went on to say, “These memorials are for the living, reminders that men and women died so that others might be free.” According to Pickler, “We remember, the Soldiers, sailors, and Marines who participated in Operation Flintlock for ve days of erce ghting beginning on Jan. 31, 1944.” He added that while the loss of life on both sides, and most especially the Japanese defenders, was considerable, Flintlock was judged to have been a textbook operation, which included the use of tracked amphibians and the rst use of frogmen to scout beaches and destroy underwater obstacles. “We remember most those honored souls who have come from all walks of life, from every corner of our nation. They were fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, relatives, friends, and neighbors — members of the armed forces who were ordinary people until they were asked to make extraordinary sacri ces in extraordinary times for their country,” Pickler said in his speech. “Each person had answered the call to duty, not because they loved war or ghting. They answered the call for a higher purpose – to preserve our freedoms. To stand up for the principles that make our country great – liberty, justice, equality and the right to live free from tyranny. This is the call that has gone out to every generation since our nation was founded, and those who have answered have given us a legacy of the nobility of service to country.” Pickler added his personal memories of comrades lost in battle. He spoke of Soldiers who were classmates of his at the U.S. Military Academy. Both Bob Arvin and Mike Berdy were scholars, athletes and young leaders when they died in Vietnam. He said to the attendees, “I’m sure that many of you have a Bob Arvin or a Mike Berdy in your lives as well.” He also related the heroics of Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith who received the Medal of Honor in April. Smith, a combat engineer, a sapper in the 3rd infantry division, who demonstrated the ultimate heroism on April 4, 2003, when he died while protecting fellow Soldiers in a battle outside Baghdad, Iraq airport. Pickler said that even though Smith was outnumbered by more than 100 insurgents, he stayed at his position ghting off an Iraqi force so his comrades could be rescued. Under intense re, he managed to get a .50-caliber machine gun working and provided critical covering re so that the wounded could be evacuated. Smith was the rst recipient of the Medal of Honor in the Global War on Terrorism. “Memorial Day is the day we take time to honor, to remember the magni cent Americans who have fallen in the service of our country. Today is also a day to re ect on those who continue to live their lives and serve with honor and dignity, guided by the ever-present example of the fallen. As I speak to you now, tens of thousands of Americans are serving in the armed forces around the world,” Pickler said. He added that the words of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt are as true today as they were on the eve of World War II, “freedom cannot be bestowed, it must be achieved.” “Until the day the world is free from tyranny, our freedom will be preserved only if Americans continue to answer the call – and prove themselves worthy to be free,” Pickler said. He added that for some, Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer – the time for backyard barbecues and picnics and vacation season. For us on Kwajalein Island, Memorial Day is a vivid reminder of what it means to be called to duty. Memorial Day is also considered by many the beginning of the summer season. On Monday afternoon activities at Emon Beach rang in the season. Kayak rides, a volleyball tournament, hamburger and hotdog sales and a bouncy house were a few of the things for Kwajalein residents at the afternoon-long celebrations. Music played and children young and old frolicked in the water. The beach was dotted with chairs and towels and Kwajalein residents of all ages spent the afternoon in colorful swim wear soaking in the rays. Servicemen on Kwajalein salute the American ag during the National Anthem at Monday’s ceremony.

Wednesday, June 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 61950s’ Navy wife Irma Mills set precedence for today’s Bargain Bazaar, Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club, Micronesian Shop By Gene Sims Contributing writer, historianMost of the older generation will remember the radio and television series called “My Friend Irma.” The actress, Marie Wilson, characterized the good-natured, hard-working Irma in a series of radio, motion pictures, and television shows. Kwajalein had an Irma in the late 1950s. She also was a hard-working gal who gave the residents of Kwajalein and Ebeye a gift that continues to the present day. Irma Mills was the originator and driving force that started the Thrift Shop, which later became the Bargain Bazaar. Irma and her Navy husband, Commander Roger Mills, came to Kwajalein in early 1958. The island was a lot different in those days. There was no television, no air conditioning, and a supply ship that came once a month—sometimes. Macy's was located in one half of Building 702 near 8th and Lagoon roads. There were about 1,000 people on island, mostly all military. RoiNamur and Meck were still covered with jungle, and the terminal building housed a snack bar, hotel for ight crews and the of ces of the weather bureau. The Navy was in charge of the island and only a handful of Marshallese lived on Ebeye. Kwajalein had been in a caretaker’s status since the end of the Korean War and it appeared the limited aviation operations would also cease. The island was scheduled for closure in six months. This status changed almost overnight in February 1959 when Kwajalein was selected as the test site for the Nike-Zeus program. Concurrently Roi-Namur was selected for a new radar acquisition program that later became known as Project Press. Kwajalein took on the new title of the Paci c Missile Range Facility with headquarters at Point Mugu, Calif. Soon, civilian construction crews were getting started on a series of support facilities for the Nike-Zeus missile program. Places and names like the ZAR, TRADEX and MAR begin to be heard on the island. As the Navy staff was replaced by contractor personnel there was a big turnover of of cers and enlisted men in Public Works, Utilities, Supply and Marine activities. The island population tripled. Permanent Change of Station or garage sales were not as well organized as they are today and people leaving the island were expected to pack all of their clothing, household goods, furniture and souvenirs. With a limit for most enlisted men of only 500 pounds this presented a problem. Irma Mills saw a need for some kind of store that would be used to retain and sell some of this material to newcomers on island. Irma presented the idea to the Of cer’s Wives Club where the idea was argued back and forth. Irma, and some of her neighbors, nally won out, but the toughest job was still to come. The project had to be presented for approval to the Navy command. Now the Navy was pretty busy trying to build a new missile complex. They had little time for a bunch of Navy wives talking about some kind of a second-hand store that probably wouldn’t work any way. The Navy command met their match with Irma. Irma was no ordinary Navy wife. As a young bride in 1936 she made her rst trip across the Paci c Ocean to Manila on an old rusty steamer. While her husband solved meteorology problems for the rst Pan American Airways China Clippers, Irma busied herself with an upcoming family. Soon after came Pearl Harbor; Irma had suddenly become a Navy wife. The science of meteorology was relatively new and her husband was sent out to setup weather reporting stations all over the world. Irma saw many countries and lived on many islands. She learned to live with the barest of necessities. She says her tour on Kwajalein in 1958 was pure luxury. Irma nally wore down the Navy brass and a small, old storage building down in front of the second Macy’s store on 8th and Lagoon was set up for the new enterprise. The new business was to be called The Thrift Store. The operation of the store was pretty simple. People having any excess materials they couldn’t ship home brought their items to the store. They would be assigned a number, and an inventory of their items was transcribed onto a chart. Each item was tagged with the number and an asking price. If the owners left island Irma would send off a money order for any items that were sold. After two months if the items hadn’t sold they became the property of the store to be marked down in price and sold. The used merchandise began to pour in. Even people who were not leaving the island began to bring in items for sale. The hottest sales items were kids clothes, cooking utensils, toys, and comic books! The little store was busting at the seams and it was time to nd a bigger location. The Thrift Store had to move again. This time the store was located in the remains of the old Army Post Of ce and Post Exchange structure on Lagoon and 6th streets. This wooden structure later became the Corps of Engineers building in the early 1960s and nally the TV repair shop in the 1970s. The Thrift Store was run strictly by volunteer women and any pro ts were returned to the Of cers and Enlisted Wives' Clubs. These groups eventually developed four years later into the present Yokwe Yuk Woman’s Club. The monies gained by this enterprise were used to fund stateside scholarships for the Marshallese high school graduates on Ebeye, a program that is still in force. Irma and her helpers ran the Thrift Store for more than 18 months. During that time she also worked as the secretary to the Navy Public Works Of cer and did volunteer work for the Terminal Watch Wives program. Irma perhaps set the precedence still seen at Kwajalein today. The island is fortunate for the work done by the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club and their active part in the operation of the Micronesia Shop, the Bargain Bazaar and many other worthwhile projects. Irma and Roger retired in San Diego. Roger passed on a few years ago. Irma still likes to look through her scrap book about the many places where she and Roger were stationed. She tells me Kwajalein was still the best place she ever lived.
