The Hourglass regrets the error.See VACATION, Page 7by LuAnne Fantasia Gulf Region Division U.S. Army Corps of EngineersBaghdad, Iraq —In March, I crawled out of the back of a C130 and rolled into the International Zone in an armored escort after the freakiest eight-mile-ride of my life! But, I had been briefed on the insurgent activity along Route Irish and had seen it on the news, so I wasn’t totally surprised. I didn’t know until I arrived here how much good is being done in Iraq. Unfortunately, our American national media focuses on the insurgents and the daily body count, and rarely reports on the Iraq Reconstruction Program—an $18 billion effort to help Iraq rebuild its country and stabilize the Middle East. After 35 years of neglect, the country’s infrastructure is broken…thirdworld conditions. Except for the cities where Saddam Hussein lived, there is very little—if no—electricity, potable or waste water systems, or sewage treatment plants. Except for his palaces and dwellings for his party members, buildings and homes are shacks, and schools have 4-inch-deep mud (not dirt) … mud oors. Women and men in uniform, Department of Army civilians, and civilian contractors from more than 25 countries are working side-by-side with the Iraqi people to see their country progress into the 21st century, based upon their new, hard-earned and coveted democracy—something I’ll never take for granted again. The Iraqi people are gentle and kind-hearted. They want the same things in life as people everywhere—security for their loved ones, and to be able to go to work everyday and prosper. The difference between the Iraqi citizen and the insurgents is the difference between you and me, and Timothy McVeigh. The insurgents are thugs; some of them are Iraqis who simply don’t want the country to change from the oppression of Saddam’s reign. And some are terrorists—hired guns—from other countries. They kill 60 men in line to apply for the police force, or the Army, or to simply get work that day. They kill cleaning ladies on their way to work in the morning. They kill their own … innocent people, simply because they’re working with the coalition forces. They don’t discriminate. Our Marines and Soldiers are out there everyday, on the roads where it’s dangerous. They attempt to make an area safe so construction workers—American and Iraqi—can get to the construction sites to work. They’re hot and dirty and don’t have the security and safety I have. I think about them every day. I talk to them at the Post Exchange and ask them how they’re doing. I wish them GodSpeed at the checkpoints and remind them to “call your Mother.” They’re your sons and daughters. Be proud of them. They’re professionals…and precious. My son Tony is here, too. In Mosul. It’s America’s responsibility to help others. We’ve always done it. I hope we never stop. Rose Kennedy taught her children that because they were born privileged, they had a greater responsibility to help others. We’re privileged to simply be born American. We have that same responsibility. Now, four months later, I’m humbled to represent you— Americans. Two female Iraqi checkpoint guards told me last week they were afraid of Americans a couple of years ago when we rolled across their country in HUMVEEs, wearing full body armor. “Now, we know you are friends and try to help us. For this we are thanking you,” one of them said to me, touching her right hand to her heart. Commentary I suppose after a long series of summers I’ll be better prepared for the “stateside syndrome.” This year caught me by surprise. I could hardly contain my anticipation and excitement for vacation during the rst week of June. A Kwaj rumor oated around town two days before we left that Continental was severely overbooked. Kathy Ann and I arrived at noon for the 1:30 check-in. We were at the front of the line. Our anxiety was unnecessary as everyone got on board for an uneventful ight to Hono, but, looking back, I realize that my apprehension over long lines was quite real, just geographically misplaced. If I had just three words to express my impression of vacation they would be lines, lines, lines. We visited my brother in Florida and stood in Busch Gardens and Sea World. I say “stood” because about half our time in the park was standing still, in a line. Waiting for a roller coaster, my daughter, Kelly, and I timed the ride – 20 seconds. If you spend 20 minutes in line the ratio of ride to wait is … ridiculous. Imagine describing Kwajalein to someone in one of that endless, amusement park, serpentine lines and he says, “Wow, that’s so small. You must feel con ned.” “Not like I do in this line!” Then, there’s the traf c. I could

Saturday, July 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 Aiding neighbors relief By Master Sgt. Bob Haskell Army News ServiceMore than 5,000 National Guard Soldiers and airmen from four states rolled out or stood by to help when the hurricane season began earlier than usual this year. Hurricane Dennis battered Pensacola and the surrounding Florida Panhandle July 10, a Sunday afternoon and evening, with 120-mph winds, and cut a northwest track into Alabama before quickly losing steam. Some 2,600 Florida National Guard troops turned out for the Category 3 blow that, according to initial estimates, caused between $1 billion and $2.5 billion in insured damage in this country. The Associated Press reported the storm left more than 550,000 customers in four states without power. A couple of thousand Florida Guard troops supported law enforcement and civil relief efforts in the stricken western part of the state. “Our troops were distributing food, water and ice to people at 31 distribution points in Florida’s four western-most counties the day after the storm,” said Lt. Col. Ron Tittle, a Florida National Guard spokesman. “That was cut back to 21 distribution points in three counties by Tuesday,” he added. Members of the 3rd Battalion, 20th Special Forces Group supported search and rescue operations conducted by state and local agencies. Other Guard members helped police provide security at traf c control points and patrolled neighborhoods. Three battalions from the 265th Air Defense Artillery formed the main Guard force in the panhandle, Tittle said. The 2nd Battalion of the 265th had returned from a 12-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in April and was pressed into state active duty to deal with one of the hurricanes that Florida Guard troops have come to know all to well. A total of 7,000 Army and Air Guard troops responded to the four storms that ripped into their state last August and September, Tittle said. Some who turned out for Dennis were still recovering from the wrath of 2004. “I hope that Dennis moves farther west and doesn’t touch the state,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jeffery Sargent of Vero Beach, Fla.. “I’m still working with my insurance company and contractors to complete repairs from damage to my home from last year’s hurricanes.” Still, the Guard troops turned out because they knew they had the skills and the training to help their community. “Our troops are packed and ready to go,” said Lt. Col. Troy Ratliff, the 2nd Battalion’s commander. “Many of these Soldiers recently returned from Afghanistan and have skills in conducting security missions over there that will be important in this state mission.” Ratliff also promised that his Soldiers will be ready to deal with the future emergencies that af ict Florida, especially since weather forecasters are concerned that this could be another active hurricane season. “If there are more storms, we’ll be ready for them,” the battalion commander vowed. “These guys have been through a lot. We’ll just [regroup] and do it again.” (Editor’s note: Master Sgt. Bob Haskell writes for the National Guard Bureau. Jon Myatt, Florida Department of Military Affairs, contributed to this report.)

Saturday July 16 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4By Elizabeth Davie Reporter“It is not as glamorous as it looks,” said Sgt. Brad Walker, K-9 handler for the Kwajalein Police Department. People think we sit around and do nothing but they don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, he said. The K-9 unit has two drug dogs and two bomb dogs, all four are Belgium malinois. The drug dogs are trained to identify marijuana, cocaine, heroine, ecstasy and hashish. Each dog is assigned a handler. “We are all responsible for the health and welfare of the dog assigned to us, mentally and physically,” Walker said.Searching the boats at the dock is one of the K-9 department’s responsibilities. Sgt. Brad Walker, K-9 handler, and his dog Tanja spend a little time playing after a long day. (Photos by Elizab eth Davie) Dog, handler, work to keep Kwajalein drug free(Illustration b y Dan Adler)

Saturday, July 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 Walker has been assigned to Tanja, one of the drug dogs, since the beginning of June. “At rst we were like two left feet trying to dance,” he said. Training is not only for the dog but for the handlers as well so they can learn to work together, he added. “After about two weeks we started to develop a bond, after three weeks she would roll over and let me touch her belly, which is the most submissive move, it was awesome,” he said. So what do these handlers do all day? According to Walker there is a lot of hard work that goes into this job. Any given day may consist of obedience training, searches, grooming and specialized training. Between training and searching places, such as the post of ce, the handlers are called to the airport to search the incoming baggage. “We search all the planes that have any civilian passengers on them,” Walker said. One bomb dog and one drug dog are used to inspect the baggage before it can be released. “We also search foreign military and private boats,” he added. According to Walker, “if you want to train dogs to nd drugs you have to use drugs.” But he’s not talking about ingesting the substances. Part of the day is spent searching for training aids. How this works is the aid, a few grams of the drug in a medal casing, is weighed and signed out from the police department, the aids are transported to the facility where the training is going to be held such as vacant housing. Another of cer places the aid in the house. The aid must sit for about 20 minutes to let the odor set in. “In reality if you go into a house the drugs are going to have been sitting there for a while and the smell will be stronger,” Walker explained. Once the aids have been given time to set, the dog and handler go in and try to nd them. “It is all play to them, it is like they are hunting and when they nd it they get rewarded,” he said. Once the handler gives the command “sook,” which is search in Dutch, the hunt is on. The dogs are trained to sit when they nd something.Obedience training is also a part of the day. The dogs are refreshed on simple commands, Walker said. After all the searching and training there is still more. The dog must be groomed. “I give Tanja a bath every two weeks, its pretty much like giving yourself a bath too,” he said. There is also other upkeep that must be done as well such as cleaning out the kennels and cleaning up after the dog. The handlers also save time to play at the end of the day. “After a long day I am ready to go home, but I am excited to see her in the morning,” he said. “It is a lot of work, but I love it.” The post of ce is routinely checked by the dogs. Walker gives Tanja a little TLC for her hard work.

Saturday, July 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 See SLEEPING, Page 16 Helpful hints for a good night's sleepBy Elizabeth Davie ReporterA number of things could be to blame if you don’t feel rested in the mornings. According to Dr. Eric Lindborg, Kwajalein Hospital’s chief medical of cer, the prevalence of sleeping disorders is estimated to be about 10 percent in the U.S. Things such as insomnia, caffeine, sleep walking, snoring, shift work and jet lag can be attributed to a lack of zzzzzs, according to the National Sleep Foundation. “Some effects of sleep disturbances include fatigue, stress, irritability, psychosomatic troubles and social dif culties. Those are just the short term. Longer term includes increase risk of gastrointestinal illness, cardiovascular issues, and psycho neurotic diseases and with women, hormonal functions can be a problem,” said Marion Ruf ng, psychologist and certi ed Employee Assistance professional. “Here at Kwajalein the most common problem is garden variety insomnia--dif culty in getting to sleep or maintaining sleep,” Lindborg said “Many people suffer from insomnia. Insomnia is the inability to get enough quality sleep to feel rested. Non-drug treatments for people who have a dif cult time getting their sleep hours might be relaxation techniques, changes in the diet to foods high in amino acid [tryptophan] such as bananas, turkey, cottage cheese and milk,” said Ruf ng. According the NSF until recently, jet lag was not treated as a medical condition. It is now included as one of the 84 known or suspected sleep disorders that affect millions of people each year. People may experience jet lag in varying degrees. In general, the severity of jet lag symptoms is directly related to the number of time zones crossed by a ight. Jet lag symptoms typically last longer following eastward ights. Flying east usually results in dif culty initiating sleep, where as ying west results in early morning awakenings. All age groups are susceptible, but individuals older than 50 are more likely to develop jet lag than those under 30. Also, individual susceptibility tends to vary considerably and it is possible that pre-existing sleep deprivation will intensify jet lag. Lindborg suggested these steps to help prevent jet lag: • Maintain a sensible bedtime schedule prior to your trip. Don’t avoid sleeping in order to make yourself tired. • Consider going to bed earlier for a couple of nights before leaving if you are traveling east. Go to bed later for a couple of nights if you are traveling west. • For short trips, maintain a schedule of eating and sleeping at your usual time, if possible, while at your destination. • Drink plenty of liquids, but avoid alcohol and caffeine. • If you exercise regularly, continue to do so at your destination. Avoid exercising late in the evening because it can keep you awake. • For important events or meetings at your destination, try to arrive in advance to have time to adjust to the time difference. • Melatonin, a hormone sold in supplement form at health food stores, may help decrease jet lag. Try taking one to three milligrams of melatonin at bedtime for several days once you arrive at your destination. According to Ruf ng, studies show that night workers get the least amount of sleep because they are forced to sleep during the day when circadian rhythm makes them feel more awake. In addition, day sleep is usually shorter than night sleep by about two or three hours. And rotating shift workers sleep the least of all. “Circadian Rhythm is a Latin word: Circa means “about,” and Dia means “day,” we are linked to nature’s cycle of light and darkness. Circadian Rhythm or our internal clock regulates the cycles in our body like body temperature, hormones, heart rate and other body functions. It is a major body rhythm with regular ups and downs in a 24-hour day. Many of our body systems are very active at certain times of the day and not active at all at other times of day

Saturday, July 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 VACATION, from Page 2 Italy stands firm against terrorBy Jim Garamone American Forces Press ServiceTerrorists will not terrorize Italy, Italian Defense Minister Antonio Martino said during a press conference with Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld Tuesday. Rumsfeld said that Italy has shown a great deal of courage and vision in the war on terror. Italy and the United States agree on the need to defeat violent extremism, Rumsfeld said. “(The terrorists) know they can’t win a conventional con ict,” the secretary said. “But they do hope to damage free people by terrorizing their citizens, by hoping that public opinion will force the leaders of free countries to accommodate or retreat, (and) by undermining alliances and trying to pick-off countries from the global coalition against terrorism one at a time. Those efforts will fail.” Martino nodded often as Rumsfeld ticked off the terrorists’ goals. The prime minister said he told Rumsfeld that the terrorists want to weaken the resolve and determination of free nations, “and they are not going to succeed.” Italy is deeply involved in the struggle against terror. Italy has a brigade of paratroopers in Iraq and more soldiers involved with training Iraqi security forces. Italy will take over command of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan in August. Last month, the Italians took over command of the provincial reconstruction team in Herat, Afghanistan. Finally, Italy is in command of international efforts in Bosnia and Kosovo. Rumsfeld called these “an indication of the country’s commitment to peace and stability in the world.” Martino told reporters that Italian forces will remain in Iraq as long a necessary and “not one day more, certainly not one day less.” He said Italy will not make any unilateral decision regarding its presence in Iraq. “We will always work in agreement with our allies and the government of Iraq,” he said. Violent extremists “are trying to terrorize all of us, but we refuse to be terrorized,” the minister said. Rumsfeld and Martino expressed support and admiration for the people of Great Britain as they deal with the aftermath of July 7 terrorist attacks in London. “The world has been impressed, though not surprised, by the British people’s gritty resilience,” Rumsfeld said. Rumsfeld said he still doesn’t know the answer to the basic question of the war on terror: Is the coalition killing terrorists faster than extremist “madrasas,” Islamic schools, are turning them out? “There is no way for anyone to know what is happening all across the globe among the extremist element that is nancing, recruiting, training and then deploying murderers,” he said. “I believe that progress is being made, but I wouldn’t think anyone could answer the question. It continues to be a question I think about and worry about.”By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAn ATM has been approved for installation on Roi-Namur according to Gerry Wolf, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll chief, Community Services. The ATM will be installed at the Roi-Namur Terminal, with the installation date yet to be determined. “It has to be built, and circuits acquired prior to installation,” Wolf said. ATMs are on Kwajalein at the Community Bank, in the Ten-Ten Store and in the Kwaj Lodge. “Roi did not qualify for an ATM under the guidelines established by the DoD [Department of Defense] contract for Community Bank, an issue that needed to be discussed and resolved. However, due to time constraints with Bank of Guam pulling out on short notice, it was necessary to get the bank established first, and get the secondary issues resolved later. Subsequent discussions with Defense Finance and Accounting Service resulted in a request and approval for an ATM ATM approved for Roi-Namuron Roi,” Wolf said. The ATM on Roi-Namur, like the ATMs on Kwajalein, will be affiliate with the Community Bank. “The support by DFAS in approving the establishment of a Military Banking Facility on Kwajalein with extremely short notice was excellent, and the Community Bank is an asset that fills a tremendous need and improves quality of life. The approval of the Roi ATM machine as an exception to normal procedures shows DFAS’ dedication to supporting all residents of Kwajalein expect traf c jams in Orlando and Denver (which I did experience), but Kauai??? It took us 30 minutes to travel 5 miles on the Garden Island on three different days. I could happily live the rest of my life without driving again. So, you could probably expect that I couldn’t wait to get back to Kwaj. Of course, that meant the long line at check-in, the long line at boarding, the long line for the toilet on the plane. Then, we were nally home, back to beautiful Kwaj with its wonderful, wide-open spaces. So, maybe when you leave you think about how small this island is, but when you come back, it’s as large as the open ocean. Next summer, I’ll be ready. Right. Practice good OPSEC.Be sure all classi ed of ces and documents are safeguarded.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Fever Pitch Nick Hornby’s acclaimed memoir about one man’s struggle to balance his love of a woman and his love for soccer was the basis of a well-reviewed British lm in 1997, and now gets a Americanized rewrite with this picture, in which the game is changed from soccer to baseball. Ben (Jimmy Fallon) is a high-school teacher who meets Lindsay (Drew Barrymore), who has a successful career in business. Ben and Lindsay don’t appear to have much in common on the surface, but they hit it off and are soon involved in a serious romance. But when spring rolls around, Lindsay becomes aware of the true love of Ben’s life — the Boston Red Sox. Despite the team’s lamentable record, Ben has been a ercely loyal Red Sox fan since childhood, and Lindsay nds it hard to compete with his passion for baseball, while Ben is forced to choose between the obsessions of his youth and the enthusiasms of a responsible adult. Fever Pitch was shot in part in Boston during the 2004 baseball season, which to the surprise of the lmmakers saw the Red Sox winning baseball’s world series for the rst time since 1918. XXX: State of the Union A new renegade ghter rises to defend the United States from an internal threat in this action thriller. Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) of the National Security Agency has successfully dealt with a number of threats to America’s safety, but he faces a whole new challenge when he discovers a potent terrorist cell that has ties to the upper levels of the American military. Gibbons learns that George Deckert (Willem Dafoe), the secretary of defense, has been training a secret military faction to stage a coup against the United States by kidnapping and assassinating the President of the United States (Peter Strauss). Convinced there’s no one he can trust within his circle of operatives, Gibbons turns to Darius Stone (Ice Cube), currently serving time in a maximum security penitentiary. Stone once served with Gibbons in the Army, and also took part in a mutiny against Deckert; despite his reckless side, Gibbons is certain Stone’s fearless nature and peerless ghting skills make him the one man who can take on Deckert and his troops. XXX: State of the Union is the sequel to the 2002 hit XXX, though neither star Vin Diesel nor his character, Xander Cage, appear in this picture.

Night shift workers are working when their circadian rhythm may be low and be required to get their sleep when their circadian rhythm is high. If you have trouble sleeping, resting is not enough. The brain needs sleep. Rest without sleep is valuable for the body and muscle recovery, but the brain needs sleep. Suggested in most studies is to schedule at least seven hours in bed, even if you don’t sleep the whole time,” she added. Ruf ng suggested workers who move from night to day shifts to connect with her, she has some information to help. She can be contacted at 55362. If a person feels they are suffering from a sleeping disorder there are a few thing that can be done to help. “Management of diet, stress, exercise, personal schedule and sleep hygiene are all far more likely to give long-term bene t than tests and prescriptions from a doctor. Reasons for seeing a doctor would include: major daytime sleepiness affecting work/activities; history suggestive of sleep apnea; stress or depression that are not responding to best personal efforts,” Lindborg said. “Treatment is tailored to causes. Insomnia due to stress is helped by stress management. Problems due to alcohol excess bene t from alcohol cessation/moderation. Depression and stress may be helped by counseling and medication,” he added. Lindborg suggested, “In general the less time that one uses sleeping medication the better. There are a number of studies that indicate continuous use for more than two weeks may result in a paradoxical increase in sleep problems on cessation of the medication. Most experts would agree that the best approach is to use medications sparingly when needed and to limit the duration of continuous use.
