During World War II, French villagers hid downed Allied fliers and wounded soldiers from the Germans. They risked death for themselves and their family members if discovered. Sometimes the hidden fliers or soldiers would be moved from home to home, farm to farm, in order to make it harder for the Germans to find them. Entire village populations risked terrible reprisal if they were found out, but they did it anyway. All over Europe, there were heroes such as these. In Holland, Belgium, Italy and other countries under Nazi rule, people would risk their lives to aid allied soldiers or spy on the Germans and pass information to the Americans and British. They weren’t soldiers. Nobody ordered them to do the things they did. They were young teenagers and elderly men and women. They were farmers, mechanics and shipyard workers. They were just people. The vast majority of these courageous heroes faded into obscurity when the war ended. They asked no thanks or recognition for their actions. It was simply their way of fighting back. I’ve wondered sometimes whether people would do the same these days. So I was glad to see an article in Time magazine about the Afghan who saved a U.S. Navy SEAL’s life. A few weeks ago, a four-man SEAL team was sent into the rugged mountains of Afghanistan to search for Taliban fighters. The SEALs were attacked by a Taliban force that greatly outnumbered them. In a fight that lasted hours, two of the SEALS were killed and a third is missing. The surviving member of the team climbed farther up into the mountains to escape. Four days later, an Afghan shepherd named Gulab found the American hiding in some brush in the high mountains. Gulab convinced the SEAL that he meant no harm by giving the “thumbs up” sign. He took the injured and bloodied American to his village. The Taliban found out the SEAL was there and demanded that the infidel be turned over to them. The villagers belong to the Pashtun tribe and it is in their culture to never refuse help to a stranger. According to the Time article, the village chief told the Taliban that the American was their guest and they would not give him up as long as there was a man or woman alive in the village. The villagers moved the SEAL to a new hiding place until Gulab could slip away and make the six hour trip to a coalition base where he told the Americans the man was alive and that he would bring him to them. Gulab then returned to his village and risking his life yet again, took the SEAL on the long trip to the safety of the American base. After Gulab delivered the American, he rushed back Military induction ceremonies are always strongly emotional. During these transformational events, civilians become newly minted Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines raising their right arms and taking a solemn oath to “support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. It means these new members of the Armed Services of the United States have willing committed themselves to a life of discipline and rigor— a life along the “road less traveled.” You cannot help but feel a strong attachment to the ideals which inspired them to make this leap of faith. The U.S. military remains strong because everyday young men and women make the conscience decision to join. In our all-volunteer force, we rely on their commitment to sel ess service and dedication to duty and country in order to succeed. Without them, quite frankly, our military would fail. Our ships, planes and tanks would have no crew. Our trucks and cargo craft could not deliver supplies. See INDUCTION, Page 7 CORRECTION The phone number for ight seat requests to travel to Roi-Namur is 56359, not 53469, as stated in the article printed on Wednesday.

Saturday, July 30, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3Good planning, good campingSee CAMPING, Page 6 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterIt seems as though people are always looking for something different to do around Kwaj. Camping, either on Kwajalein, Roi-Namur or one of the many outer islands, could be the answer to that search for some people. However, it is not as easy as one might think; there are steps that must be taken prior to pitching your tent. “My friends and I go camping often and have been through and helped de ne the process over the years,” said David Greene, Mission Operations Software Engineering manager. According to Greene, a camping trip to an outer island starts with the submission of a Republic of the Marshall Islands Special Trip Request Form, Entry/Exit FORM 004-2. The form must rst be processed, approved and signed by the RMI of ce in Building 901. The form indicates which islands are to be visited and the RMI of ce authorizes the visit by checking with the appropriate landowners. If the landowners and RMI approve the request, then the form must next be processed by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Entry/Exit of ce in Building 901. Among other things, E/E will double check that the visit is to an island where visitation is possible islands involved in range operations, such as Meck, Omelek, Illeginni, Legan, Gagan, Carlos etc. are off-limits for such visits. Of cials will also check that the trip will not intersect with a scheduled range operation when the Mid-atoll Mission Corridor is controlled or closed. This form also lists which private boats are involved in the trip and all participating individuals. The nal documentation requirement is for a private boat oat plan to be led with Harbor Control detailing the timeline for the trip for each boat involved. The approved Entry Exit form should be attached. “Once the paperwork is complete and the trip authorized the real fun begins. Planning for meals and cookouts, comforts such as tents, beach chairs, water toys and how to get it all onto the boat can be challenging if there is a large group or if the trip is for more than one night. Be sure to pack mosquito repellents, lots of fresh/bottled water, as many coolers of ice as you can t and plenty of trash bags to get your trash off the island when you leave. Running out of one of these can cause more misery than any other item,” said Greene. In case of an emergency Greene said the rst thing you can do is to have a complete rst aid kit. “Members of our group often include a nurse or physician but not by design, just because they want to camp too. We have seen our share of injuries, but nothing more serious than cuts requiring a few stitches. Safety concerns argue for having at least

Saturday, July 30, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4(Illustration by Elizabeth Davie) By Elizabeth Davie Reporter“According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism there are four times as many problem drinkers as alcoholics in the United States, and I would suspect that percentage would hold true to Kwajalein,” said Marion Ruf ng, psychologist and certi ed Employee Assistance professional at the Kwajalein hospital. Dr. Lance Ray, Kwajalein hospital, said, “The National Council of Alcohol and Drug Abuse defines alcoholism as “being characterized by continuous or periodic impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences. We would suggest referring to “hazardous drinking, problem drinking or alcohol abuse” rather than alcoholism which has come to have more demeaning connotations indicating

Problem drinking can be just as harmful. A person can abuse alcohol without actually being an alcoholic, that is, he/she may drink too much and too often but still not be dependent on alcohol. Some of the problems linked to problem drinking are the problems we see on Kwajalein,” Ruffing added. “The problems seen on Kwajalein are falls, Monday morning “hangovers”, liver enzyme changes, heartburn or bleeding from irritation of the esophagus or stomach, obesity and high blood pressure and problems with relationships at home or at work, and increased risk of non protected sex and sexually transmitted diseases. These problems can eventually develop into cirrhosis of the liver, increased risk of liver cancer, breast, colon and oral cancer, increased risk of esophageal cancer, suicide and on the mainland, motor vehicle accidents,” Ray said. “One’s decision to use alcohol must also c arry the wisdom to know its dangers and the responsibility for its consequences. The distance between celebration and catastrophe can be unexpectedly short,” said the Rev. Rick Funk, Protestant chaplain. How do you know if you or someone you know is a moderate drinker, a problem drinker or an alcoholic? These are the symptoms for each: A moderate drinker: • Considers an occasional drink to be a small, though enjoyable, part of life •Has hobbies, interests, and other ways to relax and enjoy life that do not involve alcohol. • Usually has friends who are moderate drinkers or nondrinkers • Generally has something to eat before, during, or soon after drinking • Usually does not drink for longer than an hour or two on any particular occasion • Usually does not drink faster than one drink per hour • Feels comfortable with his/her use of alcohol (never drinks secretly and does not spend a lot of time thinking about drinking or planning to drink). Signs that drinking has become a problem include: • Worrying about having enough alcohol to last through an evening or a weekend. • Hiding alcohol or buying it at different stores so no one will know how much you are drinking. • Switching from one kind of drink to another to keep from drinking too much or getting drunk. • Trying to get “extra” drinks at a social event or sneaking drinks when others are not looking. • Failing to do what you should at work or at home because of drinking. •Not being able to remember what happened while you were drinking. • Not being able to stop drinking once you start. • Hurting someone else as a result of your drinking. Symptoms of alcoholism are different for each person. Just a few, or nearly all, of the following symptoms may be present: Early stage: • drinking for relief from problems • Need for more and more alcohol to feel drunk • Blackouts occur. (not being able to remember events or blocks of time that happened while drinking • Hiding alcohol or sneaking drinks • Thinking more and more about alcohol • Planning activities around drinking Middle stage: • Drinking more than planned • Not admitting to having a drinking problem • Trying to control drinking by using mind games such as deciding to never drink before noon • Breaking promises • Having personality changes and mood swings • Drinking as soon as they wake from a night’s sleep Late stage: Having severe withdrawal symptoms (symptoms when the body is no longer getting alcohol) such as delirium tremens, also known as the DTs or morning shakes. According to Ruffing, problem drinking can be addressed with Moderation Management. MM is a recovery program and national support group network, founded by Audrey Kishline, for people who want to reduce their drinking and make other positive lifestyle changes. MM is not for everyone—it is not for alcoholics, chronic drinkers, or those who experience signi cant withdrawal symptoms when they stop drinking. MM offers nine steps toward lifestyle change: • Attend meetings or online g roups and learn about the program of MM • Abstain from alcohol beverages for 30 days and complete steps three through six during this time • Examine how drinking has affected your life • Write down your life priorities • Take a look at how much, how often, and under what circumstances you have been drinking • Learn the MM guidelines and limits for moderate drinking • Set moderate drinking limits and start weekly “small steps” toward balance and moderation in other areas of your life. • Review your progress and update your goals Continue to make positive lifestyle changes and attend meetings whenever you need on going support or would like to help newcomers. “Treatment of alcohol abuse or problem drinking is rst for an individual to recognize and accept that they have a problem with alcohol. Successful treatment is dif cult without this rst step. Counseling and 12 step programs are available here, as well medical treatment including Antabuse and newer medications for addiction recovery.” Ray said. “Treatment for alcoholism can be different for each person but usually begins with detoxi cation, which is the body’s withdrawal from alcohol. After the body is clean of alcohol, the alcoholic enters a counseling program with the goal being to help the alcoholic face emotional issues that lead to drinking and to learn ways to stop drinking. Medications may be given to curb a physical craving for alcohol,” Ruf ng added. Help can be obtained from your physician or from the Employee Assistance Program located at the hospital. There is an active AA support group on island, Ruffing would be happy to help with this information. She can be reached at 55362. “Oftentimes, people do need someone to talk to initially; perhaps to admit to the problem and gain some courage to seek further treatment. That would be my primary role. I can help people with other aspects of the issue such as family or work relationships,” Funk said. Funk is available for all manners of counseling and conversation. He can be contacted by e-mail, at work, 53505 or at home, 52201

Even Bigej has a signi cant number of structures and sites created by the Japanese or Marshallese before or during wartime and we treat all these as cultural resources. Essentially, when visiting islands such as Bigej, you are truly a guest of the family that owns the land and representing both USAKA and the US of A on foreign soil. It is both a privilege and an honor to be allowed to enjoy these locations so it’s best to treat them as you would treat your own property,” Greene said. two boats on the trip so that one can depart quickly in an emergency without stranding the others. In a real emergency, contact would be made with Harbor Control and Marine Police by radio as soon as possible so that speedy professional assistance might be arranged ahead of time. A good, working and powerful enough radio could make all the difference in an emergency,” Greene said. Greene added there are few printed rules speci cally addressing camping activities. Not too long ago USAKA and the RMI agreed to disallow the use of paint ball guns on all islands in the Kwajalein Atoll. There are several of cial USAKA policies people planning a visit to an outer island should be aware of that all address some aspect of conduct allowed on islands within the atoll: 190-10 “Entry and Exit Control,” 385-9 “Water Safety,” 200-1 “EnvironmenCAMPING, from Page 3to his village, packed up his family and left his home.

I pray that God will look after Gulab, his family and his fellow Pashtun villagers and keep them from harm. HUMANITY, from Page 2 By Donna Miles American Forces Press ServiceA leading group of U.S. Muslim legal scholars issued a religious ruling Thursday condemning terrorism and extremism, underscoring the sharp contrast between Islam and the violent extremism demonstrated by terrorists who claim to operate in the name of Islam. The Council on American-Islamic Relations announced the edict, issued by the Fiqh Council of North America and endorsed by 120 North American Muslim organizations, leaders and institutions, during a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The ruling, called a “fatwa,” calls on Muslims to help ght militant violence a nd clari es that “those who commit these barbaric acts are criminals, not martyrs. “Islam strictly condemns extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives,” the fatwa states. “There is no justi cation in Islam for extremism or terrorism.” Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called the ruling an important step in creating a united front among Muslims to help counter extremism. “United, we can confront the terrorists and frustrate their goal of sparking an apocalyptic war between faiths and civilizations,” he said in a statement read at the news conference. “The presence here today of American Musl im leaders indicates the willingness of our community to strengthen national security and to work with policymakers to gain victory over this international menace to humanity.” Defense leaders have long emphasized that the war on terror is a war against violent extremism, not Islam, but that peace-loving Muslims must help contain it. “The struggle that is taking place within the Muslim religion is not going to be won by people outside that religion,” Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld noted during a June 4 speech to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. “It’s going to be won by people inside that religion.” The best way to help stop extremism is to “change the environment where you don’t have men and women wanting to join jihad,” Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers said during a June 29 Pentagon town hall meeting. “The best way that message can de livered is not by the United States of America, but by moderate Muslims around the world,” the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman said.

Saturday, July 30, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 Marshall Islandsswim team doingwell in Montreal Our ghting units would be hollow shells, mere paper tigers. The pointy tip of the spear would be a feather duster. People, especially our young volunteers, are the blood that pumps through the veins and arteries of the massive human organism that is the U.S. Military. This simple act of joining the military ensures the continued strength of our country. So why do people join? They do it for a variety of reasons: a challenge, change of pace, monetary gain, skill training, and a hope of a better future. Usually, there is no one single reason— it is an amalgam that varies depending on the individual. No matter the thought process behind making the choice, no one joins the military because they think it is easy or because they believe they will never face challenges to their mental and/or physical well-being. It takes a willingness to believe in the overarching goals of the organization. For those that join the Armed Forces of the United States, it requires faith in the ideals organized around the principals put down on paper 200 plus years ago by our Founding Fathers. Finally, it requires a written and verbal affirmation that you would willingly risk your life in their defense. Last week I had the privilege and honor to witness one of these ceremonies. Nine civilians became Soldiers in defense of our freedoms. Three will become infantryman who, more likely than not, will find their way to the sands of Iraq or Afghanistan within a year. The rest will likely join them as well. I joined the military at time when we as a nation were at peace. The decision I made was nowhere near as momentous as these nine. I admire their courage and am thankful for their sacrifice to our country. It was a remarkable event. Even more remarkable was that these were not the sons and daughters of the United States; these were the sons and daughters of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. INDUCTION, from Page 2 Hourglass reportsAfter a week in Montreal, the Republic of the Marshall Islands swim team is in the midst of competition. “We have a few more days of swimming left,” said Chris Lindborg, swim coach. “Jared Heine set a new RMI record on the 100-meter backstroke and met a long desired goal of breaking one minute, his time was 59.76. He still has two more events, the 50 back and 100-meter butter y,” she said. She added that Michael and Ian Taylor set personal bests in their races, “they improved their times by 3 to 4 seconds each, which is a huge amount for their events. Ian swam 50-meter butter y in 30.29, 100 breaststroke in 1:21.39 and 100-meter freestyle today [Thursday] in 1:00.71,” she added. “Michael has raced in 100-meter breaststroke (1: 20.80), 50-meter breaststroke in 37.20 and 100meter freestyle in 1:04.20,” she continued. “Both of them have one more race left, the 50meter freestyle [which he completed on Friday].“The World Championship is the top competition in swimming; we are racing with the likes of Michael Phelps and Ian Crocker. We have witnessed at least four world records broken and ve course records, just to be among the elite of the sort is incredibly inspiring,” she said.According to Lindborg the teams from Oceania include Fedrated States of Micronesia, Guam, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Tahiti and Samoa, “we compete and support each other, many of these athletes know each other well from the South Paci c Games,” she said. Living on Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands is truly a blessing. The waters are crystal clear and the vegetation bright with fragrant blooms. The major detractor is the trash and debris that are left carelessly and needlessly on the ground at our work areas and homes. I challenge the members of our community to devote a few minutes each day to cleaning up the work, living and recreation areas around them. If you have items outside that are no longer needed, properly dispose of them including recycling what ts in this category. If each of us would stop and pick up trash and debris when we see it, our island would be even more beautiful. We are all responsible for keeping our island home clean. John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president

Hoping to leave their terrifying experiences in Seattle behind them, Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) and her son, Aidan (David Dorfman), move to the small town of Astoria, Ore, where Rachel takes a job writing for the local newspaper. When Rachel learns of an unexplained murder, which occurred after a teenager watched a strange videotape with his girlfriend, she suspects her past is following her and she begins looking into the case. Rachel believes that the otherworldly Samara has come back; however, as she tries to convince others of the young girl’s powers, her own son falls ill and is hospitalized, and Rachel’s stories fail to convince either Dr. Emma Temple (Elizabeth Perkins), who suspects Rachel is guilty of child abuse, or David Rourke (Simon Baker), one of Rachel’s colleagues who fears for Aidan’s safety. Also starring Sissy Spacek, The Ring 2 was directed by Hideo Nakata; it was the rst English-language project for the Japanese lmmaker, who previously made Ringu, the picture that was the basis for The Ring. Guess Who A man gets a very big surprise when he meets his prospective son-in-law in this comedy. Percy Jones (Bernie Mac) is the understandably proud father of Theresa (Zoe Saldana), a beautiful and intelligent young woman living in New York City. When Percy learns that his daughter is dating someone and things are getting serious, he decides to do some research, and learns that her beau is a solid businessman. Percy arranges to meet the young man, but is a bit taken aback when he comes face to face with Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) — Percy and his wife are African-American, and Simon is very, but very Caucasian. When it becomes clear that Simon and Theresa’s relationship is likely altar-bound, Percy nds himself suddenly full of misgivings about the young man, especially since Simon tends to get rather clumsy when he’s nervous. Guess Who was loosely adapted from the 1967 hit Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, though the race of the prospective father and son have been swapped, and the original lm’s comic undercurrent has been pushed to the forefront.The following seven U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism. Sgt. Arthur R. McGill 25, of Gravette, Ark., died July 19 in Baghdad, Iraq, where an improvised explosive device detonated while he was on mounted patrol in a HMMWV.
