Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA. It is published Wednesdays and Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff, P.O. Box 23, APO AP 96555.

I see plenty of “it’s too hard” or “we’ve tried and failed before, so why bother,” but I want to recognize those who can do, and won’t take “no” while waiting for someone else to do it. My heart opens when I see Mr. Steve Howell interact with students to make a difference in their life’s direction, or when Kathy Bates tirelessly controlled the set-up and tear-down of our island social functions, or when Dr. Jill Horner takes time for one more runny nose or broken bone, or when Rob Gray puts it down ever-so-gently on the tar mac, or when Jeff DeLong keeps the mission going – with or without full power to ALTAIR, or when Les Jones convinces me that the best decision has yet to be made. When Chief Warrant Of cer Steve Simpson saves $1 Million in the budget by working the green-suit angle on Air Traf c Controllers, or when Flynn Gideon cares enough to move a family when the housing unit they’re in becomes unbearable (rats, mold, ants…you name it). Or the behind the scenes folks who are dedicated to untiring and unrecognized support – those who never call attention to themselves, like Fr. John Sheehan and Rev. Rick Funk who so aptly care for our small community, or Trish Wildfang and her IT support staff who continue to work through legacy problems on legacy equipment with 21st century tactics, or Bob Babcock, who always has a smile and an operational catamaran, as gruff as he looks. How about the further behind the scenes folks like Fred McNickle… ever the roads and commodes guy, or Manny Kapahu and crew…so proud of our cold storage capability. Or Floyd Corder or Jim Bowers, or the hundreds of others…too many to mention by name, who absolutely give everything they have and everything they know to the operation of USAKA/RTS. How about the Hourglass and AFN crews, the bakery folks, the re and police departments, the solid waste and incinerator guys (jobs you couldn’t pay most of us to do), the island leaders in their respective contract organizations, the post of ce – our link to the outer world, and our Marshallese employees…a smile, a nod, and a wave. I guess there’s plenty of “can’t do” out there, and maybe I get insulated sometimes, but I sure see a lot of “can do,” and it sure makes me feel good. If I didn’t mention you, it’s because Nell, Mig, Dan and Beth cap me at 450 words. Stay tuned for future pats on the back! Last week Bruce and I were invited to celebrate a friend’s hard earned master’s degree in education. Way to persevere Doug! Among those who came over to celebrate were Dave and Lora Kendrick. Having spent years together on Kwaj, the other night was the rst opportunity we “see mingly” had to get to know one another better. As the conversation turned toward our experiences this summer I realized just how much we all have in common. I’m from San Diego and spent from 1965 to 1984 growing up there. This was a time of tremendous growth socially and economically for both San Diego and Los Angeles, Calif. Dave, Lora, Doug and Bruce aren’t from these areas but spent a lot of time there and shared their experiences in these sister cities. We spoke of Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, 32nd Street in San Diego, the Jesus movement and the record label Maranatha born out of this time. We reminisced about movie stars we had bumped into and a very early date Bruce took me on at Big Oak Ranch in El Cajon where we enjoyed a small, open-aired gathering listening to an unknown country singer named Ronnie Milsap. Turns out, I have Dave Kendrick in part to thank for the Christian High School I attended in El Cajon. Tim LaHaye purchased this Catholic convent and founded Christian Heritage College here, later expanding the campus to include seventh to twelfth grades which I attended during 19751981. It is now known as the Christian Uni ed School District, encompassing many high, middle and elementary schools throughout the San Diego area. One by one, as their experiences were relayed, I felt lanterns being raised in the recesses of my mind, illuminating memories long forgotten. Thanks to the Heplers I had a great evening, found common ground with my neighbors and have precious memories more colorful than ever. — Pam Johnson Correction : In the article “Bechtel matching employee contributions for bene t of Hurricane Katrina victims,” in Wednesday’s edition, the date given as a deadline for donations was Sept. 15.

New guidance received by Kwajalein Range Services from USAKA indicates that only employees needing to encrypt or decrypt email are required to have a CAC. “We are trying to ‘kill two birds with one stone’ with this initiative,” Maj. Craig Holton, Aviation Operations Of cer said. According to Holton, most Kwajalein residents do not require a CAC – not for computer use and not for island access. Only those personnel who have a need to access CAC-secured databases, send or receive encrypted email messages or enter U.S. military installations that require a CAC as proof of identi cation require one. “I, like must folks, have enough to keep up with in my life; we gured that most would appreciate having one less thing to keep up with,” he said He also explained that CACs are a controlled item and problems have arisen in accounting for all the cards. “To be quite honest, people are leaving Kwaj without returning their cards and this is causing an accounting nightmare, not to mention creating possible security problems throughout the military community,” he said. There has been a misconception that CACs give the holder added privileges. “Some CAC cards do allow the holder to access military facilities and utilize such facilities as the Commissary and/or the AAFES [Army and Air Force Exchange Service] stores. USAKA does not have

T i m e l i n e o f i m p o r t a n t e v e n t s i n M a r s h a l l e s e h i s t o r y M a r s h a l l e s e j o u r n e y History of an island people By Mig Owens Assistant editorEditorÂ’s note: This article is the rst in a series that explores Marshallese history, government, and culture.The story of the Marshallese people is rich with tradition, family values and reliance on the land. Knowledge of the traditional Marshallese society passed from generation to generation by word of mouth from as far back as 3,000 years ago. In a project that began seven years ago, Cris Lindborg, director of exhibits for the Marshallese Cultural Center, traced the history of the island with which Kwajalein residents are most familiar; the neighboring island of Ebeye. She gathered information from reports written by


Ebeye in 1967 when the population was less than half of what it is today. (Photos courtesy of the Marshallese Cultural Center) Jack Tobin, an anthropologist who lived on Kwajalein in the 1950s, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll les and by talking to elders and people who lived during those times. “Like many things in the Marshall Islands, history and traditions are not written down. For those of us who come and pass through this land, there is little to read to nd out more about it,” Lindborg said. She said that because she and her family have made the Marshall Islands their home and have friends in the Marshallese community, she wanted to share their story. “As you know, one of the hardest things for many of us in Kwajalein is to understand how so many people can live in a tiny island with so little, and yet be so kind and generous,” she said. “I also want to understand their problems to be able to gure out possible longterm solutions.” Through posters rst displayed at the Cultural Center and then condensed into her booklet, The Ebeye Story Lindborg’s research covers the history Ebeye starting in 1930 when a Japanese census recorded the population at 19 people, eight male and 11 female. It also recounts a camp built to house Marshallese workers who helped reconstruct Kwajalein after the 1944 capture of the island from the Japanese. Population growth in the 1960s led to development of an Ebeye Housing Authority and in 1986, when the Compact of Free Association was signed, the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government became operational and responsible for their own Department of Public Works. Island-wide electrical power illuminated Ebeye in 1967, and a fresh-water pressure system was installed to serve housing units. Population growth led to a new power plant and desalination facility in 1985 and an island-wide sewage system and treatment plant in 1986. In 1988, streets were paved and streetlights installed. Ebeye residents weathered Tropical Cyclone Roy in 1988, Typhoon Zelda in 1991, Typhoon Axel in 1992 and a drought in 1998-99. With help from the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency in 1990, new housing was provided to those who lost their homes during the storms. The agency also helped fund installation of the current reverse-osmosis plant on the island, which today serves the island’s 11,000 residents. Researching the island’s history, Lindborg said, altered her view of Ebeye. “I think when most of us go there, we are impressed by the contrast between Kwajalein and Ebeye,” she said. “Homes are crowded, poorly constructed, there are no trees, children run on the streets barefoot...we are immediately struck by the material poverty.” Lindborg said what we fail to notice is “children’s playfullness and laughter, we don’t hear the beautiful singing coming from the churches, we miss the camaraderie and friendship that brings people together to visit, chat and tell stories in the evenings.” Despite challenges brought on by population growth and Mother Nature, the Marshallese remain a warm and generous people, their identities and obligations centered on family. Understanding their history requires an understanding of the people. “I encourage everyone to make friends with the Ebeye people…,” Lindborg said. “Just a smile and a ‘Yokwe’ is a wonderful gift.” Information for this article was found in the Civic Achievement Award Program Student Resource Book, The Ebeye Story and the United States Army Kwajalein Atoll Marshallese Primer


Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6KRS contract stipulates outcomes, getting there requires ingenuity n s o r a re no recipes s s inc l u d e d in, to o r e v e n r ef n the co n t ra ct Range Services holds with the U.S. Army Kwajalein l/ Reagan Test h is is a p er f orce b a sed co ntract,” Brian Ponte, KRS Contracts manager, said. “The PWS [Performance Work Statement] tells what the outcome is suppose to be, but doesn’t tell you the means and methods of getting there. They pay us to manage that.” Inherent to the KRS contract are nancial incentives for good performance and negative effects for overruns, explains Ponte, whose job it is to correspond with the customer, negotiate changes, disseminate information to KRS management, track actions and provide contract interpretation to departments and functions within KRS. “As long as the means and methods comply with all governing laws and regulations, the company can be creative and use best-business practices to produce the outcomes,” Ponte said. Those laws and regulations include Federal Acquisition Regulations, the Department of Defense FAR Supplement, USAKA policies and procedures, the law and special provisions written speci cally for the KRS contract. The contract to manage the island and related Hawaii and continental United States facilities was awarded in September 2002, though its start was delayed by a protest by the incumbent contractor and others. The basic part of the contract ends in February 2007, followed by an option that ends Feb. 28, 2009. KRS has received preliminary notice that this option will be awarded. Further options could extend the contract to 2018. “We bill the Army for the cost we’ve incurred and a xed base fee and then every six months, the government does an award fee evaluation based on the previous six month’s performance,” Ponte explained. “They decide how much we get out of a xed award fee pool.” USAKA evaluates KRS’s performance in all areas of the contract. One evaluation is made for Integrated Range Engineering and one for Logistics Support Services. The KRS contract is the rst to combine the two under one contract. Linda Gray, USAKA Contracts adminis trator who serves as ‘eyes and ears’ on Kwajalein for the procuring contracting of cer located in Huntsville, Ala., is the evaluation coordinator for both the Integrated Range Engineering and Logistics Support Services Award Fee Evaluation Boards. Gray also provides advice and assistance to the USAKA commander and other USAKA personnel regarding all the USAKA contracts and any other acquisitionrelated issues. Though she cannot authorize changes to the contracts that would affect the cost or period of performance of a contract (because only the PCO who has a warrant is authorized to make those type changes), she is delegated certain authority in writing by the PCO. “KRS’ performance is actually [evaluated] on a daily basis. However, the formal evaluations that are input into the SeeSOR system are done based on the timeframes originally set up by the government performance evaluator and the KRS counterpart,” Gray said. “That information is then utilized in the overall performance evaluation every six months by the Award Fee Evaluation Board to determine the award fee that KRS earns for that period.” Gray explained that this is a formal process where the performance evaluators provide their input to section leads. The section leads then prepare their input to the total contract evaluation package that is presented to the AFEB, which then goes through a de ned process to determine their recommended performance rating. That recommendation is submitted to the Award Fee Determining Of cial who makes the nal determination of award fee earned by KRS. “This determination is then submitted to the PCO who does a modi cation to the contract of cially stating the award fee earned so the contractor can submit a voucher to DFAS [Defense Finance and Accounting Service] for payment of the award fee earned,” Gray said. Contract extensions are earned based on award fee scores as well. “An award fee contract can be very advantageous to everyone involved and drives you toward a partnership with the customer for a mutual outcome,” Ponte said. He added that the outcome-based contract allows the company to be creative and encourages “out-of-thebox” thinking found in programs such as Six Sigma. Ponte cited the ever diminishing budget as one of the biggest contract-related challenges KRS faces each year.“However, I continue to be impressed by the ability of our team and USAKA/RTS to get the job done, getting every bit of value out of what we’re given, despite the budget shortfalls,” he said. “Our working relationship with the customer is consistently excellent – all pulling in the same direction here, all facing the same challenge.”Making it work

Global War on Terror CARDS, from Page 3 Honoring fallen heroesthe authority to grant these privileges hence the majority of the CAC cards issued here on Kwaj do not authorize the holder access to other facilities nor do they grant shopping privileges,” Holton explained. According to Holton, USAKA is identifying those within their sections who require a CAC to perform their duties. Those who do not require a CAC will be required to turn theirs in. Personnel will be contacted by their supervisor and will turn their CAC over to him/her. If a CAC has been lost, the employee is required to file an incident report with the Kwajalein Police Department. “A copy of this report along with a signed statement saying you have lost your CAC card should be given to your supervisor. If you are due to turn in your card, this will clear your card from the database. If you require a CAC card, in addition to your incident report and statement you will be required to pay a $15 fee to have another card made,” Holton said. Holton said that the in/out processing checklists are being changed to ensure CACs are turned in well in advance of the actual day one leaves the island. “Our intent with this change to the present CAC card procedure is to increase our ability to better manage the CAC cards we have here on Kwaj while having the smallest effect possible on the community as a whole,” Holton added.

Madagascar A pack of not-so-wild animals experiences some serious culture shock when they move from the Big Apple to the Mighty Jungle in this computer-animated comedy. Alex (voice of Ben Stiller) is a lion who enjoys a charmed life as one of the leading attractions at a zoo in New York City’s Central Park. While Alex and his pals Marty the Zebra (voice of Chris Rock), Gloria the Hippo (voice of Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the Giraffe (voice of David Schwimmer) are happy with their lot in life, they occasionally have a certain curiosity about the outside world, and when the zoo’s penguins decide to make a break for it, Marty follows them into the city. Alex, Gloria, and Melman set out to find Marty before he gets into trouble, but they’re a bit too late, and soon the zookeepers have decided that the animals are restless and need to be returned to the wild. Soon the critters find themselves living on the coast of Madagascar, where they quickly discover they aren’t quite suited for living in the wild. Madagascar also features the voice talents of Cedric the Entertainer, Andy Richter and Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Ali G).The following 14 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.
