Box 23, Local or hourglass@kls.usaka.smdc.army.mil.See MONEY, Page 5 Commentary Scouting teaches boys service, characterSo let’s review. Soaring gas and oil prices. An estimated $200 billion price tag for rebuilding the Gulf Coast, over $220 billion spent in Iraq so far and, oh, yeah, another Category 4 hurricane bearing down on Galveston, Houston and Port Arthur, all in Texas, where incidentally, they re ne almost three million barrels of oil a day. Experts are now saying that if those re neries are damaged, the probability of $5 per gallon of gasoline is almost a sure thing. It seems like if we didn’t have bad luck, we wouldn’t have any luck at all. I’m glad to see some members of congress are at least trying to address the problem of the enormous costs incurred by Katrina, not to mention the damage this latest powerful storm is going to cause. As of this morning, New Orleans is ooding again. Our country needs to take a serious look at some of the bills and programs that have been passed by congress recently.By Ed HillmanI think the Boy Scouts did an outstanding job this year in supporting the Chili Cook-off. Some of the Chili Cook-off organizers that I chatted with later Sunday afternoon were literally gushing with praise with respect to the support of the scouts. I am proud of all 24 scouts who were part of this event. New Scoutmaster, John Conrad, is largely responsible for keeping the scouts focused and disciplined over the weekend, no easy task with a troop with a large percentage of young scouts. Of course without support from Col. Stipe in allocating two extra ights on Saturday and Monday, the scouts could not have made it to Roi. A signi cant part of the Boy Scout program includes being involved in service projects like supporting the Roi Chili Cook-off, helping with the Rustman Triathlon, improving the basketball courts on Ebeye, etc, etc. Having the scouts helping with these kinds of events and projects is obviously bene cial to those organizations being supported. However, it is also bene cial to these scouts on their way to being productive, involved and altruistic adults – the kind of citizens who will make this world a better place. It sounds a little syrupy, maybe even trite, but organizations like the Boy Scouts can really make a difference in boys.I was certainly no angel as a teenager. Not even close. However, my memories of my Boy Scout troop, the campouts, the camaraderie and adult leadership, etc., has stayed with me my entire life. There is no question that my own Boy Scout experience helped me socially, morally and emotionally, in addition to helping me learn how to be comfortable camping out in the elements without the modern comforts. All boys will face all kinds of decisions as they grow older. No questions they will make some bad decisions. I certainly have. We all do as nobody walks on water. But hopefully, some of the stuff they learn and do in activities like this last weekend will help them make good decisions, at least most of the time. That is what I am hoping my son will learn from the scout program and that is why I stay involved. That is also why I hope USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] continues to support the scout program on Kwajalein. As Michael Hillman goes through his teenage years on Kwaj (or the States if we ever PCS!) there will be many activities he will choose in which to be involved. Unfortunately, many of the activities in which teenagers do get involved are not in their own best interests. I don’t know all the answers, and I am far, far from a perfect parent. But it is crystal clear to me that the camaraderie, adventure and fun of these campouts to Roi or Legan or Kosrae are good for these boys and have the kind of activities in which I want my son involved.Commentary Like the massive highway bill that even some senators and congressmen admit is stuffed with almost $24 billion worth of pork projects. Or the prescription drug bene t for Medicare recipients, which I think was very much in uenced by the drug industry, and, as I recall, forbids the U.S. government to negotiate with drug companies for lower prices. Then there’s the energy bill, which does absolutely nothing to lower gas and oil prices. I don’t know what it’s supposed to accomplish except cost a Where is our money going?

In less than 12 hours after a request for assistance, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, along with General Supply Kwajalein and Kwajalein Hospital Pharmacy personnel, responded to the need by providing immediate life-saving support in the form of medical supplies and medicines. “USAKA’s and KRS’ supply section led by Mark VerStraten and Mike Proudfoot were able to gather up the medical supplies in less than two hours afSee FIRE, Page 5birthday. You must be in one of those categories to be enrolled,” explains Gerry Wolf, Community Activities director, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. The overseas program was mandated by Congress in 2000 to extend the domestic benefits to eligible personnel overseas. Implementation was phased, and included sites supported by NEXMARTS and Defense Commissary Agency Commissaries. “Access to approved facilities (NEXMARTS/ Commissaries) for remote locations has been and is a problem,” Wolf said. Because there are no authorized facilities on Kwaj, Wolf explained that items such as formula, crackers, cereal and canned goods will be shipped to program participants. According to Wolf, to be eligible for the program, participants must be military on active duty, DoD civilian, DoD contractor or family members of any of those. WIC will need to see a copy of orders (to establish residency) that put the sponsor at the base/facility. Income is also qualifier. Base pay and subsistence as well as some special pays like Save Pay are used to determine income and eligibility. A copy of the leave and earning statement or pay stub from the last 90 days is required for enrollment.If you think you may qualify for the WIC program, want a brochure or need additional information, contact Wolf at gerald .wolf@us.army.mil He can also provide contact information for the WIC Overseas program of ce. Additional information on WIC can be found at www.tricare.osd.mil/ wic able in a limited fashion to those who qualify on Kwajalein. WIC is a Department of Agriculture program that provides eligible participants with several bene ts such as nutritious food that can contribute to a healthier diet; tips on how to prepare a balanced meal; nutrition and health screening and access to other resources that can help families lead healthier lives. “WIC Overseas serves women who are pregnant, breast feeding women up to the infant’s first birthday, and to non-breastfeeding women up to six months.

Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassRemembering missing comrades National POW/MIA recognition day held at Pentagon4 By Rudi Williams American Forces Press ServiceGordon R. England and Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, hosted a ceremony for National POW/MIA Recognition Day at the Pentagon’s River Parade Field Sept. 16. “We’re here to remember, we’re here to honor, the courage of America’s captives and our missing countrymen who risked everything, facing the worst of war to preserve the best of America,” England said. “We’re here, above all, to reaf rm our commitment to keep the pledge President Bush made to make the fullest possible accounting of our prisoners of war and those missing in action.” Rep. Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, was the keynote speaker for the event. “You hallow this ground,” the congressman told former POWs and the families of POWs and servicemembers missing in action in attendance. “This a day in which we pause to remember those who served in captivity and those who were never returned,” Hunter said. “It’s a day that we honor and recognize the wife who knew the loneliness of separation. It’s a day that we re ect on and honor the son who went to his high school graduation without a father to shake his hand and say, ‘Congratulations, son.’ “It’s a day that we recognize a daughter who walked down the aisle with no one to give her away,” he continued. “This is a day that we recognize and say a prayer for the families who watched the sun set on the Paci c coast or the Atlantic coast, waiting for a loved one to return and came back again and again and again, and never saw their loved one again.” The nation owes it to its POWs and MIAs to honor their sacri ce, Hunter said. “We should also honor POWs and those still missing in action by taking a message from them, ... a message from those who are not with us, and that is we must stay strong,” he said. “There’s a message that I’ve always derived from our prisoners of war and those that are missing in action, and that is, our obligation is to stay strong and to maintain this freedom that they gave us.” Hunter quoted his friend Ed Martin, who was a Navy commander when he was shot down over North Vietnam on July 9, 1967, was captured immediately, and spent the next ve years and eight months in captivity, as saying, “Americans have an unlimited capacity for overcoming adversity.” “That’s a message from our missing in action and POWs,” Hunter noted. “In New Orleans right now, we’ve got hundreds of thousands of people who are coming home to a broken city, but they’ve got hope in their hearts. In (Iraq’s) Fallujah, Baghdad and Mosul, Americans are ghting in very tough and very dangerous circumstances, but they’re ghting with the spirit and determination and love for our country.” An empty seat at the table with a plate and an upside down glass symbolize those servicemembers who are prisoners of war or missing in action. By Elizabeth Davie ReporterKwajalein Range Services employees will soon see a change in their 401(k) record keeper and fund manager. When asked the reason for the switch, Bob Bills, Human Resources manager, said, “The catalyst for switching was to provide our employees better service of their accounts with a reduction in the fees that they were being charged by the record keeper. In addition we will have improved administrative processes between KRS and the record keeper. We also hope that by having a large brand-name company like Vanguard as a record keeper that it will encourage more employees to take advantage of the bene ts the Vanguard is new KRS 401(k) manager401(k) plan provides.” According to Bills, the decision to change providers from Securian to The Vanguard Group was approved by the KRS benefits committee and was also reviewed and agreed to by the KRS president and the KRS board of directors. It was based on the reduced cost to See VANGUARD, Page 7

Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 To all of the heavy equipment operators who look out for bike riders and operate their machinery safely!heck of a lot of taxpayer’s money. And that’s just three incredibly expensive programs that need to be reformed or dropped altogether. If there was ever a point in time when congress needed to do what was right for the country and not for their own special interests, it’s now. But don’t hold your breath. It’s crunch time folks and the American people have to wake up and ask where the heck our money’s going. If we don’t care how our tax dollars are being spent, well, guess what, nobody else will either. We need to watch what congress does in the coming year and remember it the next time we’re lling out a voting ballot. MONEY, from Page 2 ter receiving the request. They did it without a lot of guidance and with extreme ef ciency,” Maj. Jeff Klein, Host Nation chief, said. “The Kwajalein Hospital Pharmacy led by Steve Clause and under the direction of Dr. Eric Lindborg, processed the request for medications in under 90 minutes.” Supplies, including everything from bandages, rubber gloves and IV bags to antibiotics and anesthesia, were then loaded onto an Air Marshall Islands plane by Noda Lojkar, Republic of the Marshall Islands ombudsman, and Alan Taylor, RMI relations specialist. The plane arrived on Majuro Sept. 17 at approximately 8 p.m. Klein explained that because Majuro Hospital is the only major medical treatment facility on Majuro Atoll, which has a population of approximately 36,000, the facility plays a large role in the well-being of the majority of the Marshallese population. The cause of the re in the medical supply warehouse is yet to be determined. “With no medicines and no medical supplies, the 59 in-patients moved to the Marshall Islands Resort from the hospital would have been in danger of serious injury to include loss of life,” he said. “Moreover, with no medicines and medical supplies, any emergent care would not be able to have been treated potentially causing loss of life, limb or eyesight.”On the initial request for assistance from RMI chief secretary, Bobby Muller, USAKA also noti ed the U.S. Paci c Command in Honolulu so that a larger response might compliment USAKA’s immediate response.PACOM is one of ve Combatant Commands of the U.S. Military and is responsible for the security of U.S. and its interests in the Paci c Region ranging from Madagascar off the east coast of Africa to the West Coast of the U.S, explained Klein. Six hundred pounds of additional supplies were delivered to Majuro by PACOM from Tripler Army Medical Center via C-17 from Altus Air Force Base in Oklahoma. The plane, which arrived Sept. 18, also carried U.S. Ambassador, Greta Morris, and a disaster assistance assessment team consisting of personnel from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and PACOM. Medical supplies and medicines delivered to Majuro from Kwajalein were those deemed expendable and not ones that would place the population of Kwajalein in any jeopardy, according to Klein. “The Majuro Hospital list was quite extensive and we could only provide that which we A U.S. Air Force C-17 from Altus Air Force Base in Oklahoma delivers supplies picked up at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii to Majuro. FIRE, from Page 3 knew would not affect the care and treatment of Kwajalein residents,” he said. Medicines were supplied to Majuro Hospital on a cost-reimbursable basis because no formal request by the Department of State was in place when USAKA responded. The cost is estimated to be in the thousands of dollars, according to Klein. “It was great team effort by USAKA and KRS in conjunction with the American Embassy in Majuro, the RMI government, and the U.S. Paci c Command. We alleviated a potentially serious situation in a matter of hours preventing the loss of life or serious injury,” Klein said. He added, “While we watch on TV the problems surrounding Hurricane Katrina, we can take comfort that the system worked and worked well in our little part of the world.”

This designation has no affect on DoD or nonDoD employees, according to Gerry Wolf, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Community Activities director. “In fact, Kwajalein Schools have never been a DoD school; this is a designation that has now been given and recognized by DoDEA. This allows DoDEA to provide a level of support to the Kwajalein School and USAKA that has never existed in the past,” he said. According to Frazier, nothing changes within the Kwajalein classrooms as a result of this announcement, though he said “it does open the doors to Kwajalein School receiving some direct support from DoDDS-Paci c.” That support could include being in the DoDEA information pipeline, training for school staff members, assistance with accreditation and purchasing textbooks, staff assistance and treatment by the DoDDSPaci c as extended family. Accreditation was also discussed at Wednesday’s meeting, held in the elementary school music room. Though Kwajalein Schools were fully accredited again by the North Central Association, which has been maintained since 1963, this year came with a “ rst warning” status, according to Frazier. The warning indicated flaws in the school improvement plan. Frazier reported that such a warning is not critical and that according to E.

In a report following his visit, he commended the staff’s attitude and motivation. He also stated that the school has made “substantial progress” on the school pro le document, data collection and development of school improvement plan interventions. Frazier reported that the Kwajalein School accreditation plan is “in very good condition at this time.” On a related note, Joy Simms, Child and Youth Services director, announced at the meeting receipt of accreditation for the Child Development Center and School-Age Services program. In other school news, all-day Kindergarten, now in its rst year, saw 100 percent participation at the start of the school year. According to Frazier, two classes of 18 and 19 students are now served by one teacher and one full-time assistant each. Compilation of school survey results over the past ve months was conducted and a corrective action plan written. Copies of the survey results and plan are available to the public at the elementary school of ce. Two school policies were voted on by the SAC at Wednesday’s meeting: Special Education/Special Needs and Home School. The board’s vote to accept the policies, in turn, becomes a recommendation to the USAKA commander to do the same. Curriculum is being developed for foreign language (seventh through 12th) and music (Kindergarten through 12th). Presentations by curriculum committees are expected at the December SAC meeting.

This period is known as a ‘freeze.’ Whether or not you are planning to retire in the near future, we encourage you to carefully consider how this freeze may affect your retirement planning and your overall nancial plan,” Dana Lum, KRS Human Resources supervisor, said. Bills explains that this is the only drawback to the change. According to Lum, the freeze on withdrawals, distributions and loans is expected to begin on Oct. 3 and end during the week of Nov. 13. Paperwork for new enrollments, withdrawals, distributions and loans must be submitted by Oct. 3 to be processed prior to the transition. The freeze on exchanges and contribution allocation changes is expected to begin on Oct. 10 and end during the week of Nov. 13. “Because account activity will be restricted during the freeze, it is important that you review your current i nvestments. For your long-term retirement security, you should carefully consider the importance of a well-balanced and diversi ed investment portfolio, taking into account all your assets, income and investments,” she said. Bills also stated that this change is for KRS employees only. It does not apply to Chugach or AirScan employees. Employees do not have a choice to stay with the current record keeper and have no paper work to ll out. “The change will take place automatically. Each employee should have received a notice with dates for when the change takes place,” he added. KRS plans to have a Vanguard representative on island in early November. Meetings will be arranged both during and after work hours for employees to hear the presentation and ask questions. For more information on the change, contact Bills or Lum.

It was a challenge to get the lab out here, it took nearly two years,” Jon Welchman, Child and Youth Services functional technology specialist, said. The lab will available to all youth from seventh to 12th grades that are registered with Child and Youth Services and is located at the Namo Weto Youth Center in Building 1890. “We are also planning opportunities for Kindergarten to sixth-grade children to use the lab,” Welchman said. Equipment for the lab includes seven personal computers, a scanner, a color printer, a video recorder, a digital camera and a big box full of software. “The lab offers a wide variety of technological capabilities ranging from geography mapping programs to video and music editing. The lab and software was chosen to speci cally support what they are doing in the schools. There will also be Internet access,” he added. Instruction will also be provided by the CYS staff. According to Welchman, the primary intent of the lab is to get youth and children involved in using the computers in addition to many other forms of technology. “We would also like to see an increase in youth involvement in all other programs that are offered by Child and Youth Services,” he said. Though the lab is not currently in use, Welchman said they hope to have it up and running by Monday, however; it may not be connected to the Internet until mid November. “We pulled teeth to get this technology lab here. We can either put it to really good use or let it collect dust. I want all of the youth and children to know that the lab is here for them. Whatever their interest, there is something for everyone. From making their own music and movies to scanning pictures and emailing. We will offer activities that will support the youth and children’s academics as well as activities that will be just for fun,” Welchman said. For more information on the lab or Child and Youth Services, call the youth center at 53796.

Global War on Terror ROI FUEL/SUPPLY PIER REPLACEMENT, ROI-NAMUR ISLAND, USAKA ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTThe U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command has completed an Environmental Assessment, prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA. The EA analyzes the environmental consequences of replacing the fuel/supply pier on the Island of Roi-Namur, which is part of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site. The existing fuel/supply pier and pier approach are in poor structural condition and in danger of collapsing. The design to replace the existing pier with either a replacement pier or wharf would meet the operational requirements of Roi-Namur. Three alternative designs were considered. Alternative 1 would replace the existing fuel/supply pier and pier approach with a new L-shaped 200-foot-long concrete pier supported by concrete piles. Alternative 2 would include the construction of a 200-foot-long by 50-foot-wide sheetpile pier with a concrete deck and solid ll. Alternative 3 (the Preferred Alternative) would replace the existing pier with a 100-foot by 50-foot wharf, oriented east/west. Construction is anticipated to occur between April 2006 and March 2007. Based on this analysis, the U.S. Army has determined that proposed activities are not expected to result in signi cant impacts to the environment. A draft Finding of No Signi cant Impact and the Final EA are available at www.smdcen.us/eaeisdoc/ roiea.asp and at the following locations: Alele Public Library, P.O.

Danny (Jet Li) is a physically powerful but emotionally stunted man; never given any sort of proper education, Danny has learned little in his lifetime but how to ght, and his minder, Bart (Bob Hoskins), treats him more like a guard dog than anything else, using him in illegal no-holds-barred brawls that earn Bart plenty of money but only reinforce Danny’s violent alienation. When Bart is injured in an auto accident, Danny is left to fend for himself, and stumbles upon Sam (Morgan Freeman), an elderly piano tuner who has lost his sight. Sam is the rst person to treat Danny with kindness, and the music he plays soothes the troubled soul of the ghter. However, Danny’s ghting skills soon come in handy when Sam runs afoul of a pack of small-time crooks who believe he knows too much about their operations. 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.

Among the passengers were 11 nurses on their way to establish a Navy hospital in Japan in support of the Korean War. “Theirs was a mission of mercy in time of war and we meet here today to break ground for a memorial dedicated to their sacri ce,” Lt. Col. Justin Hirniak, Reagan Test Site commander, said Monday at the future site of the memorial near the airport. Ceremony participants included representatives from the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/ Reagan Test Site, Kwajalein Range Services, U.S. Navy Reserves, American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Naval War College. Of the groundbreaking, Hirniak said it is a beginning. “…one in which we pull back memory’s curtain to recollect this time in our history so that we and generations after us never forget that here for a very brief time walked men and women who would give their lives that fellow humans might enjoy freedom, which in reality is our American way of life.” Pickler, Tom Dillon, Dennis O'Connell, Lt. Col.
