They have shown their mettle time and time again in the long history of England. They lost more than one million men in World War I and kept ghting to the end. During World War II, Londoners endured the Blitz, kept the proverbial stiff upper lip and stoically vowed to never surrender. Winston Churchill was the voice of England, but the British people were her soul. When their Army was trapped against the sea at Dunkirk, civilians manned yachts, shing boats, sailing vessels and even rowboats to cross the treacherous English Channel braving German air attacks and submarines to rescue 300,000 British and French soldiers so they could ght another day. When the U-boats devastated their merchant eet and the whole of Britain was facing starvation, no Englishman thought of quitting. As the German Luftwaffe bombed their air elds and cities, the vastly outnumbered Royal Air Force fought magni cently in the skies above their island and over the water of the channel. The Germans had the numbers, but the British had the unshakable will to never be defeated. Yes, the British people are made of stern stuff. The people who performed the cowardly bombings in London this past week will accomplish nothing. The Brits won’t be intimidated anymore than Americans were by Sept. 11. They have proven many times that terrorism won’t work against them. The Irish Repubilican Army carried out a vicious terror campaign against London in the 70s and 80s. The British didn’t give in then and they won’t now. I don’t know how other people around the world would react to such an attack. The Spanish unfortunately caved in to the Madrid bombings. Hopefully others won’t if attacked. Maybe something good can come out of this evil. Maybe as Russian President Vladimir Putin said, the Europeans will now realize they must really work and ght together and recognize this terror as the threat to our civilization it truly is. It’s not an American ght or a British ght. The whole world is in it whether they like it or not. There is no avoiding it and no appeasing it. Americans have stood shoulder to shoulder with the British against Nazis and Communism. We stand together now against an evil that in many ways is worse than any that has come before. My heart goes out to the British people and those who were injured and killed and to their families. But I know they will turn this tragedy into, as Churchill said in the darkest days of World War II, “Their nest hour.” Classi ed ads are due for Wednesday’s paper by noon, Saturday and for Saturday’s paper by noon,Thursday.

Wednesday, July 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 See REACCREDITED, Page 12 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterKwajalein Armed Forces Network welcomes three new faces to the island, a video producer, an engineer and a radio personality. Mike Zeitzmann is a video producer from Missouri. Before coming to Kwajalein he freelanced in Dallas for nine years doing videography and editing. “I’ll be producing some local PSA’s [public service announcements] for AFN, assisting with Window on the Atoll, and putting messages into the Roller,” he said. According to Zeitzmann he came to Kwaj because he was looking for a change from both corporate video and Dallas. “Kwaj is definitely a change from both. Also, I knew if I didn’t take this opportunity, I’d be wondering “what if” for the rest of my life,” he said. “After a month, I really like it here. It’s really good to have everything so close together. In Dallas, my morning commute was a half-hour in congested traf c. Here, it’s 90 seconds by bike,” he said. When asked if he had any funny or interesting stories he said, “I was born in Washington, Mo., which at the time was the “Corn-Cob Pipe” capital of the world. You know all those pictures of General MacArthur smoking a pipe? Those were made in W as h ington. ” Kelly O’Conner is the chief e n g ineer. “ I ensure a ll o f ou r sy stems are operatin g correct ly and receive the proper maintenance as well as plan for future expansion or upgrades so that AFN can provide the best service possible to the folks of Kwaj,” he said. According to O’Conner before coming to the island he retired after 26 years of service in the Air Force of which about 18 years were spent in Air Force Broadcasting as a technician and then manager. “I was also a manager in project management of base communications, and some other odds and ends. The best part was I spent over 20 years in overseas assignments,” he said. He lived in Manchester, N.H. until he joined the Air Force. “But after being in the military for more than half my life and being overseas for most of that, I think I can call the world my home,” he said. O’Conner said he decided to come out here because he heard there was a decent golf course. “I’m loving it famously [on Kwaj]. What’s not to like? Aside from the idiosyncrasies of being on such a small island, the place is great. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help you out without even knowing you long,” he said. When asked to tell a funny story he said, “When my hair was rst thinning out I vowed I would shave my head and not be so vane where I’m combing my hair from one ear to the other. Then I’d only be able to walk one way depending on the direction of the wind. Well, one day I saw a c ture o f myse lf an d it l oo k e d l i k e h a d d irt on t h e top o f m y h ea d I c i ded i t wa s t im e fo r a t rim.

Wednesday, July 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass ID theft, a few keystrokes change lives 4 By Nell Drumheller EditorPerhaps being on Kwajalein is like being a world away from the rest of society, but a fast-growing crime can reach these shores. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has released a study that indicates almost ten million Americans are victimized by identity thieves annually. Americans are not isolated victims of this crime. For example, in Australia, identity fraud costs citizens approximately $A2.4 billion annually. “We are only aware of one [identity theft problem] that occurred on USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] about 2 years ago; when a user responded to an unsolicited e-mail on their home computer,” Trish Wildfang, Kwajalein Range Services, Information Technology manager said. Wildfang recommends “Remove your name from the marketing lists of the three credit reporting bureaus -Equifax, Experian, formerly TRW, and Trans Union. Call (888)5OPTOUT or go online to www.optoutprescreen.com This will limit the number of pre-approved offers of credit that you receive. These, when tossed into the garbage, are a potential target ot identity thieves who use them to order

Wednesday, July 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass???? 5credit cards in your name. “When creating passwords and personal identi cation numbers, do not use the last four digits of your social security number, mother’s maiden name, your birth date, middle name, pet’s name, consecutive numbers or anything else that could easily be discovered by thieves. It’s best to create passwords that combine letters and numbers.” Identity theft can happen through sources other than the Internet. Paul Divinski, KRS Retail Sales manager, said that the retail stores within USAKA have processes in place which make it dif cult for identity thieves to prosper. “We enter K-badge (or C-Badge at Ten/Ten and Gimbel’s) or “Mil ID” for military ID in the register databank during the sale,” he said of the retail outlets. “Access to this data is restricted to store management, and it is treated as con dential information and not printed or provided to others,” he added. According to Divinski no photocopies of identi cation cards are made or kept. He said that if a customer attempted to use identi cation that seemed to be fraudulent, “Management would be noti ed. Purchase of goods would be refused. Communication of possible fraudulent card and name of cardholder would be provided with approval to Provost Marshal’s Of ce.” Both Wildfang and Divinski have advice to consumers when it comes to possible identity theft. “Do not provide social security numbers, bank account numbers, or credit card numbers or expiration dates to people who solicit information via phone or e-mail. Destroy thoroughly unneeded credit card, bank account statements or other paperwork which contain con dential account numbers or social security number.” “Install a rewall on your home computer to prevent hackers from obtaining personal identifying and nancial data from your hard drive. Install and update virus protection software to prevent a worm or virus from causing your computer to send out les or other stored information. Password-protect les that contain sensitive personal data, such as nancial account information. Create passwords that combine 6-8 numbers and letters, upper and lower case,” Wildfang recommends for home-computer users. “When shopping online, do business with companies that provide transaction security protection, and that have strong privacy and security policies,” she added. She also suggested “Ask your nancial institutions to add extra security protection to your account. Most will allow you to use an additional code or password (a number or word) when accessing your account.” She said that the most common way con artists and thieves get people’s identi cation information on the Internet is via public record sites and fee-based information broker sites. Wildfang added that consumers should not have their social security number or driver’s license number printed on their checks. “Don’t let merchants hand-write the SSN onto your checks because of the risk of fraud. There is no law against this, so you may need to be assertive. Examine your Social Security Personal Earnings and Bene ts Estimate Statement each year to check for fraud. The Social Security Administration mails it to adult-age social security number holders about three months before their birthday,” she said. The SSA Web site has additional information, www.ssa.gov/ mystatement Reach them by phone at (800) 7721213. Are you a victim?According to the Federal Trade Commission Web site, if an identity thief is opening new credit accounts in your name, these accounts are likely to show up on your credit report. Other indications of identity theft can be: • failing to receive bills or other mail. This could mean an identity thief has submitted a change of address. • receiving credit cards for which you did not apply. • denial of credit for no apparent reason. • receiving calls from debt collectors or companies about merchandise or services you didn’t buy. In the computer age a new form of piracy has grown. It’s called phishing. De ned as the act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft. The e-mail directs the user to visit a Web site where they are asked to update personal information, such as passwords and credit card, social security, and bank account numbers, that the legitimate organization already has. The Web site, however, is bogus and set up only to steal the user’s information. For example, in 2003 there was a phishing scam in which users received e-mails supposedly from a legitimate site claiming that the user’s account was about to be suspended unless he clicked on the provided link and updated the credit card information that the genuine site already had. Because it is relatively simple to make a Web site look like a legitimate organizations site by mimicking the HTML code, the scam counted on people being tricked into thinking they were actually being contacted by representative of a legitimate company and were subsequently going to that site to update their account information. By spamming large groups of people, the “phisher” counted on the e-mail being read by a percentage of people who actually had listed credit card numbers with the company legitimately. The FTC recommends that if consumers think that their identity has been stolen that they should close accounts that they believe have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. They should also le a police report and get a copy of the report to submit to their creditors. The consumers should also le a complaint with the FTC. The FTC maintains a database of identity theft cases used by law enforcement agencies for investigations. The FTC offers a series of publications about the importance of personal information privacy. To request free copies of brochures, visit ftc.gov or call (877) FTC-HELP (382-4357).

Wednesday, July 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 416th Engineer Command membersin Iraq came from all over America by LuAnne Fantasia Gulf Region Division U.S. Army Corps of EngineersBaghdad, Iraq—Sgt. Maj. David Murphy likes to quote Margaret Mead, “A small group of committed, thoughtful people can truly change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” The 32-year veteran from Illinois arrived here a couple of weeks ago with a small group of 20 committed and thoughtful Soldiers. His unit is the 416th Engineer Command that deployed a detachment on a Request for Forces, or RFF, order to supplement the command and staff of the Gulf Region Division—whose mission it is to execute the Iraq Reconstruction Program. “Although I’m still surprised at the enemy activity, the types of projects interest me and marry well with my background,” Murphy said. In his civilian life, he is a project manager for Johnson Control Company. He explained that the detachment that deployed here is comprised of ve original Soldiers, plus 15 Soldiers who cross-leveled into the unit from all over—Arkansas to Puerto Rico, from Kentucky to Hawaii. All of the Soldiers are on 18-month orders, but expect to only be here for a year. “The 416th has deployed to Central America; most recently to Panama in Operation New Horizons,” Murphy said, adding that he’s been away for extended trainings and exercises, but nothing ever a year long. “My wife is in shell shock,” Murphy said. Murphy is at the headquarters Security branch here until early July, when he transfers to the Gulf Region Southern District in Talil as the sergeant major. But, Murphy isn’t the rst to peel off from the detachment. According to Lt. Col. Wayne Potuznik, four of the Soldiers were reassigned to Corps of Engineer districts before leaving Kuwait. “It depends on the skill set and where that Soldier is needed,” Potuznik said. “One Soldier went directly to the central district here in Baghdad, and three went to the north district in Mosul.” Potuznik is one of the 15 pulled from other units to ful ll the RFF. His unit is the 88th Regional Readiness Command at Fort Snelling, Minn. “GRD needed speci c skills, and the 416th lled as much of the requirement as possible internally, before the Reserve Command had to be asked to ll the rest,” he said. In the three districts, the Soldiers will be subject matter experts in planning, design and construction management; at the Division level here, battle management and support, according to Potuznik. He said that although the Soldiers in the 416th came from all over, they started developing working relationships while at their month-long training at Fort McCoy, Wis. “Based on work assignments, occupations and other things, the Soldiers in the unit did begin forming working relationships while at McCoy, and we soon began feeling more cohesive. Now that all 20 are integrated into the Corps of Engineers here, they’re ready to launch,” Potuznik said.Green turned purpleIn conjunction with the 416th, there are 48 Soldiers deployed from the 35th Engineer Brigade, for a total of 102 additional personnel on hand and 150 authorized. This RFF has made the Gulf Region Division a multicomponent one—with Soldiers from the Army (Active, Guard and Reserve); Navy and Marine Corps Reserve; and an Air Force of cer due to arrive soon. Lt. Col. John Geider, the Division acting operations of cer, said the RFF was a personnel action necessary to provide a suf cient number of uniformed military members. “We needed more Soldiers to contribute value-added engineer services to the reconstruction effort,” Geider said. “The RFF allows us to reinforce and expand the success already enjoyed by GRD.” Geider said the Reconstruction Program is a critical pillar of the counterinsurgency strategy, along the economic line of operation. “Setting the stage for the provision of essential services and economic growth is vital for the stability of the interim Iraqi government,” he added. GRD Deputy Commander Col. Frank Kosich said it had become dif cult to maintain strength levels and momentum by resourcing from within the Corps of Engineers with temporary duty personnel. “Now we interface primarily with the military units in sector so the military personnel we bring in establish and maintain communications with those we work alongside,” Kosich said. “They’re also the continuity, as they tend to stay longer than most of the senior level civilians—the opposite of what we see stateside.” Kosich added that the majority of the force expected is in the net at this point. “There are a few more service members expected in July and early August, but for the most part, they’re here and making things happen.” At the transfer of sovereignty in Iraq June 2004, there were just over 200 reconstruction projects started. Today, there are more than 2,500 projects started, valued at more than $5.8 billion. A total of 1,365 projects are complete. Construction will continue across the country, at a total of $11 billion in reconstruction money. (Editor’s Note: LuAnne Fantasia is the Deputy Public Affairs Of cer, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Gulf Region Division and formerly was the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll PAO.)

Caution times are from 7:01 p.m. through 3:01 a.m., July 22. 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 08 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. All mid-atoll corridor islands are designated as sheltered islands. Additional areas speci ed outside the mid-atoll are designated as caution areas, see maps. 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. on Monday and continue until evacuation has been accomplished.

Once this is done, a team is put together to develop a plan for improving each program. Tiffany explained that at the CDC, which is for children from 2-anda-half to kindergarten, they were working on developing smaller group training to provide more individual instruction for the children. The SAS, which is for children grades one though six, an emphasis was put on developing activities for the older children, such as having high school students teach classes such as dance and cooking.After the plan for the CDC was done it was sent to the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the SAS plan was sent to the National After School Association. Each association sent someone out to observe and score the program, Tiffany explained.The plan and the evaluation were sent back to the proper association for review by a board. The board Surface and airspace caution areas decided if the program should be accredited, she added. “This is an ongoing process, you don’t get accredited and forget about it,” Tiffany said. There are annual reports that need to be sent to show constant improvement. “It takes a lot of work from the staff and the parents, a lot of teamwork, to get something like this done,” she said. For more information on the accreditation or one of the programs, call the CDC at 52158 or the SAS at 51722.
