There are thousands of illegal immigrants coming across the Mexican border every day. ItÂ’s pretty scary that we have 10 million people in America illegally and for the most part, we donÂ’t know who they are or where they are. How easy would it be for terrorists to just walk across the border undetected and get lost in Los Angeles or Phoenix before they blew something up and killed a lot of people? WhatÂ’s even scarier and just a little bit incomprehensible to me is that some states are giving driverÂ’s licenses, state bene ts and free medical care to illegals. ItÂ’s free to them because American citizens and immigrants who are in the country legally and paying taxes, are picking up the tab. IÂ’d like to see you or me walk into a hospital and tell them we would like free medical care. I donÂ’t think it would happen, do you? Now, IÂ’m not the brightest guy, but what part of illegal donÂ’t I understand? Is it just me? Is my dictionary wrong? When I was a youngster, I was taught no one should be rewarded for breaking the law. Apparently, that doesnÂ’t apply if youÂ’ve come into the United States illegally. So here we are with borders that are about as secure as an unlocked sports car with the keys in the ignition. Putting troops on the border may sound like a good idea until you remember that our military is stretched very thin by Iraq and Afghanistan. Besides, some people say that would be unconstitutional. I donÂ’t know how that could be, but then, what do I know? How can protecting your borders be unconstitutional? IÂ’m not saying that all of those coming across the borders are terrorists or bad people. Most of them are just seeking a better life. But, IÂ’m sorry, to truly secure our country and keep potential terrorists out, this ood just has to be stopped. But never fear, I have the answer. Are you ready . itÂ’s the draft. Yeah, good old-fashioned conscription. Now before you start calling me crazy or worse, just hear me out. It will make sense, I promise.What should happen is that young people, say ages 18-21, who donÂ’t feel the need to volunteer for the regular military, would be drafted into national service to provide security for our borders, nuclear plants, seaports and other vulnerable areas that are serious potential targets for terrorists. IÂ’m not talking about an untrained, donÂ’t-know-what-theyÂ’re-doing situation. They would receive rigorous training in security, rearms, the law and then be able to supplement the severely undermanned Border Patrol, police departments and other For complete listings go to: http:/intranet/com/entertainment/afn_radio


Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 Norwood replaces Macklin as CONUSoperations deputy program manager S E C URITY, from Page KRS News ReleaseDave Norwood came on board July 25 in the Kwajalein Range Service Huntsville, Ala. of ce as the deputy program manager for the continental United States operations. Looking ahead with a fresh set of eyes, and yet keeping the same vision, Norwood indicated he had a highly competent team to do so. “I have been impressed with all the KRS team members, both the ones I have met in person here in Huntsville and those I’ve met over the phone at other locations. They strike me as an extremely professional and highly competent group, and I am glad to be a part of such a great team,” he said. This is the rst DPM CONUS Operations change since the inception of the contract. Norwood replaced Phil Macklin who has been with the project since he was the contract capture manager. Macklin will not be too far from the action, however. He is moving to Bechtel National in Frederick, Md., where he will continue to develop future space business. Norwood wants to focus on three things: 1. building on the foundation laid by Macklin, providing an environment where the team can continue to excel; 2. integrating the KRS team members who will be joining the CONUS team in Huntsville, maintaining our standards of excellence and 3. understanding the customer’s expectations and exceeding them. Norwood came to KRS following two years in Baghdad, Iraq on the United States Agency for International Development Iraq Infrastructure Reconstruction Project There he operations, construction and technical management. For several months, he served as deputy to current KRS President John Pickler, who at that time was Bechtel’s deputy chief of party for Liaison and Security Services in Iraq. “DPM of CONUS Operations is the kind of challenge that I enjoy and I love being in the Huntsville area. In fact, during past Corps assignments, I spent a considerable amount of time focused on the Tennessee Valley and on Redstone Arsenal. Also, it doesn’t hurt that I have two grandchildren about two hours away in Nashville,” he said. Prior to joining Bechtel in June 2003, Norwood served 27 years as an of cer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, culminating in 10 years of assignments of senior leadership and management responsibil architectural rm. His service took him to many locations in CONUS as well as Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia, Central America and South America. Norwood looks forward to the opportunity of working with team members from CONUS and Kwajalein. “My past experience allows me to bring to the table information and ideas to continue the standards of excellence which have already been demonstrated to me.” “I am still learning about the USAKA/RTS [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/ Reagan Test Site] and SMDC [Space Missile Defense Command] and intend to continue my education by visiting the site in the rst part of September,” Norwood said. “We have the right person for the job. I know because I have worked with him in the past He will uphold s ecurit y a g encies around the c voluntaril y if the y chose to of c o I haven’t thou g ht o f a g ood n but I’m leanin g toward callin g i t h elp protect y our home while t h volunteered to really protect the country are getting shot at” corps. It may be a little hard to get that on a logo though. So how much would all this cost you ask.Well, we wouldn’t have to pay them much. After all, the Soldiers and Marines in Iraq aren’t exactly getting rich. One thing’s for sure though, no matter what it would cost, it would be a lot less than, say, having a nuclear power plant blown up or the electric grid for the entire eastern seaboard being taken down or major port facilities destroyed because there wasn’t enough trained security personnel available to guard those sites properly. And it would leave the regular military free to do the really heavy lifting of defense. Even old codgers such as me could volunteer (that means no pay) to be trained and utilized for security purposes. After all, lots of 40 and 50 something reservists and easy targets they would be? Of course, nothing can make us 100 percent secure. But better security can at least cut down the odds of another attack. If we’re really serious about being in a War on Terror, more than one percent of the population, which is about what the military is, should be involved in it. Or, when another attack takes place, is everyone going to wring their hands and ask how could this happen, why wasn’t something done to stop it? If there are more major terrorist attacks in America, think what it would do to our fragile economy, jobs, the price of oil, just everything. Every person in the nation would be affected by it in one way or another. We are all at risk. We should start acting like we know it.


4 w h o w o r k e d o n K w a j c r a s h v i c t i m s who worked on Kwaj, crash victims By Mig OwensAssistant editorTwo memorials will honor Kwajalein’s military men and women, including those who died in a 1950 plane crash, and those who have lived and served here since 1944. Both projects were undertaken by Beverly Vencill, acting secretary for the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Administration of ce. Dedication of the memorials is slated for Memorial Day. The rst memorial pays tribute to 26 Navy personnel who died in a plane crash on take off from Kwajalein on Sept. 19, 1950. The plaque will be erected at the east end of the runway near Historic Marker No. 7, which is several feet away from the Stop/Look sign on Ocean, according to Vencill. The plane, which crashed one and a half minutes after take off after refueling, was en route to Japan and all aboard were said to have perished, according to Vencill. On the plane were 11 Navy nurses who had been recalled to active duty and headed to the Naval Hospital in Yokuska, Japan to support the Korean War. “This is the largest recorded loss of nurses at one time in our history,” Vencill said. “Having been on Kwaj since 1983, I had heard about this ‘Kwaj’ crash, but only in the Kwaj rumor department. Curiosity led me to look it up on the net and then I became determined that these 11 women would not be forgotten.” The rst time Vencill saw a picture of one of the nurses, it took her breath away. “Ensign Jane Louise Eldridge, RN, looked so proud and determined. She died at age 27 when I was 6. I’m 61 now and this is my way of saying thank you to her for giving so much for me and to mine,” she said. The base portion of the plaque honoring the plane crash victims was donated by Kwajalein Range Services and the remainder of the funding is in the inquiry stage. “When I get a time line for events, I will be calling on the community to have volunteers to help set up a ceremony, with all the pomp and Kwaj spirit we can raise. The youth of our community are especially welcome to share their ideas.” Vencill feels the project is important because of Kwajalein residents’ rare opportunity to live and work in an area with “such an historic past where we are creating history with each mission we support.” To not document the facts as we know them is to not allow generations to learn, she explained. “And in as much as we may never entirely know why an incident occurred, we can analyze what responses were and what they could have been. But more than that, these 26 individuals were going into harm’s way to care for our Soldiers injured in the Korean War and they were killed in what had to be a horri c accident from which only four bodies were recovered. That means 22 were lost at sea, no marker, no mourners to gather, no memories to share. [It’s] way past time for a celebration of their lives,” Vencill said. The second memorial honors Soldiers and families who have served on Kwajalein since the end of World War II. Its location is the 392 by 10-foot wall bordering the fuel storage area, across from the Kwajalein Fire Department. H o n o r i n g s e r v i c e Honoring service Lt. William Spangle, USN, was one of 26 Navy personnel killed when their aircraft crashed shortly after take off from Kwajalein in 1950.

Crew, passengers of VR-21, Sept. 19, 1950 Through volunteer efforts, the wall will be painted a sand color and then stenciled with hibiscus owers in colors familiar to Kwajalein. A plaque will be af xed featuring logos of the ve services that have supported Kwajalein.Vencill said that she has two goals through this project. “One is to improve 392 feet of our island and the second is to provide a means whereby this community can acknowledge and thank our servicemen and women and their families for their dedication and sacri ce to all of us,” she said. “Many look at all that we have and think ‘that guy’s got a plumb assignment,’ and in many respects our military do, but Kwaj is not always the best investment for them in the sense of their career or education and its hard on them as transient military families. In a nut shell, I want to honor our Solders.” The American Legion Auxiliary has sanctioned the Memorial Wall project and the Kwajalein Art Guild has agreed to adopt this project and will be responsible for maintaining it in the future.Work on the wall involves repairing some broken cement, steam cleaning and spraying it with primer, to be done by KRS. Volunteer paint crews will then apply the primer, base coat and at least two surface coats. An “artsy” group will paint the hibiscus chain, Vencill said. Plumeria will then be planted between each of the palm trees that line the wall. Vencill is in the process of researching a source for the plaque. At present it has been designed to be carved from black marble, with the outline of the Atoll and the USAKA/Reagan Test Site symbol in the center. “This is a great opportunity for families to do something together for their communities. For organizations to do a good thing, a fun thing and be part of something that will be here, hopefully, long after we are gone,” she said.

Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Center for Disease Control givesupdate on world bird flu status farms and live poultry markets. Do not eat uncooked or undercooked poultry or poultry products, including dishes made with uncooked poultry blood. • As with other infectious illnesses, one of the most important preventive practices is careful and frequent handwashing. • CDC does not recommend the routine use of masks or other personal protective equipment while in public areas. When preparing food • Separate raw meat from cooked or ready-to-eat foods. Do not use the same chopping board or the same knife for preparing raw meat and cooked or ready-to-eat foods. • Do not handle either raw or cooked foods without washing your hands in between. • Do not place cooked meat back on the same plate or surface it was on before it was cooked. • All foods from poultry, including eggs and poultry blood, should be cooked thoroughly. Egg yolks should not be runny or liquid. Because in uenza viruses are destroyed by heat, the cooking temperature for poultry meat should reach 70 C (158 F). • Wash egg shells in soapy water before handling and cooking, and wash your hands afterwards. • Do not use raw or soft-boiled eggs in foods that will not be cooked. • After handling raw poultry or eggs, wash your hands and all surfaces and utensils thoroughly with soap and water. If you believe you might have been exposed to avian in uenza, take the following precautions: Monitor your health for 10 days. If you become ill with fever and develop a cough or dif culty breathing, or if you develop any illness during this 10-day period, consult a health-care provider. Before you visit a health-care setting, tell the provider the following: 1. your symptoms 2. if you have had direct poultry contact and 3. where you traveled. The U.S. embassy or consulate also can provide names and addresses of local physicians. Do not travel while sick, and limit contact with others as much as possible to help prevent the spread of any infectious illness. For more information about avian in uenza, see u/avian/index.htm and csr/disease/avian_in uenza/en/ For information about safety and security for Americans living abroad, see CDC News ReleaseAvian in uenza A (H5N1) is a viral infection that usually affects wild birds but can infect and cause serious disease among poultry, such as chickens. While it is unusual for humans to get avian in uenza virus infections directly from poultry or wild birds, a number of human infections and outbreaks caused by certain avian in uenza A viruses have been documented since 1997. See u/avian/outbreaks/asia.htm. H5N1 infections in humans can cause serious disease and death. An inactivated vaccine to protect humans against in uenza A (H5N1) is undergoing human clinical trials in the United States, but no human H5N1 vaccine is currently available. Situation updateFrom December 2003 to Aug. 5, a total of 112 human cases of avian in uenza A (H5N1) were reported in Vietnam (90), Thailand (17), Cambodia (4) and Indonesia (1), resulting in 57 deaths. For more information about H5N1 infections in humans and the cumulative number of cases, visit the WHO Web site ( avian_in uenza/en/ ). Outbreaks of H5N1 among poultry have been con rmed in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam during 2005, and in Malaysia and Laos during 2004.CDC recommendations The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend surveillance, diagnostic evaluation and infection control for suspected H5N1 cases in travelers to the United States that were detailed in a health update on Feb. 4 ( han020405.htm ). CDC remains in communication with the World Health Organization and continues to closely monitor the H5N1 situation in Asia. Situational updates can be found on CDC’s avian in uenza ( u/avian/index.htm ) and Travelers’ Health Web sites ( ). Information also is available on the WHO Web site ( ). Precautions • To minimize the possibility of infection, observe precautions to safeguard your health. Speci cally, travelers should avoid all contact with poultry (e.g., chickens, ducks, geese, pigeons, quail) or any wild birds and avoid settings where H5N1-infected poultry may be present, such as commercial or backyard poultry Poultry and wild birds such as ducks, geese and pigeons can carry bird u.
