It was an overwhelming success on many counts. This occasion requires an inordinate amount of planning and coordination, not to mention the support and generosity of both the Kwajalein and Roi-Namur communities. So many people are involved with helping us to make the chili cookoff a success. First we’d like to thank the Boy Scouts and their leaders John Conrad and Ed Hillman, who helped us with so many functions at the cook-off that we can no longer imagine holding another one without their assistance. The pie toss contest is typically our biggest moneymaker of the day. It takes a good sport to sit for the pie toss and a benevolent spirit to donate money to bid on the pies. We thank Janet Burki, John Conrad, Floyd Corder, Jeff DeLong, Lt. Col. Justin Hirniak, Greg Howson, Dennis Johnson, Conrad Nakasone, Mark Owens and Ozzy Velez for their willingness to get ‘creamed.’ We also thank Fr. John Sheehan, Dennis Johnson and Maj. Johnny Davis who came prepared to ‘swim’ in our dunk booth. Cowboy and Lexie Galloway have been our staunch supporters from the beginning and we are quite appreciative of all the help they provide in securing donations and contestants. Roi-Rats and our Third Island neighbors turned out in force to generously volunteer their time. We are indebted to John Antill, Gerald Baxter, Damon Brown, Joe Coleman, Debbie Corbett, Bodin Enos, Aina Erakdrik, Berlinda Erakdrik, Maitong Erakdrik, Shawn Harrington, Miriam Ishoda, Jack Jones, Carol Kobeney, Alianna Lejjena, Tim Lykes, Rudy Manalac, Jenna Milne, Franscisco Padilla, Larry Roberts, Joe Rubon, Charlie Sandlin, Lisa Shier, Tony Stephens, Robert Stere, Bellu Tabu and Kerry Young for their hard work. With much appreciation, The ECCF CommitteeThis letter is in response to the Saturday article titled “Fire-Medical warehouse burns on Majuro, Kwajalein renders aid through supplies.” The response to re-supply the Majuro hospital was a KRS Team effort and the following people contributed to the successful outcome: Kristen Brown (medical inventory control specialist) reviewed Majuro’s material requirement list and identi ed the items that we could support. Joey Salvador (acting General Supply Kwajalein warehouse supervisor) and his staff, Watson Stephen, Ramon Langinbelik, Wayne Iaman and Obet Latrik processed the material for delivery and Burt Kakuda and Jim Langford (Shipping and Receiving personnel) researched the material to ensure hazardous material compliance and packed it for air transport to Majuro. All these people deserve recognition for a job well done. Repectfully, Mike Proudfoot


Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 T o w e r w i l l h o u s e F A A r a d a r f i n i s h e d p r o d u c t Tower will house FAA radar, finished product u s e s t e c h n o l o g y t o i m p r o v e a i r t r a f f i c s a f e t y uses technology to improve air traffic safetywing hangar and Building 900, began in late August. The lack of wind in late September-early October made this timeframe ideal for erecting the tower. In November, the ASR-11 primary and secondary radar will be installed, as well as the radome, which will protect it from Kwajalein’s corrosive environment. The effect of the new FAA radar in terms of technological advancement, according to Walt Gaved, Raytheon resident engineer, will be “like going from black and white to color TV.” The radar will deliver improved reliability, provide additional weather data, reduce maintenance cost, improve performance and provide digital data to new digital automation systems for presentation on air traffic controller displays. Support Radar Team Lead, Chris Gregoire, who recently attended the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City, will be one of several members of his group tasked with maintaining the ASR-11. All radars on Kwajalein with the exception of GroundBased Radar Prototype and the weather radar are maintained by the Support Radar Team. “This is a solid state system known for its reliability and maintainability,” he said. “This system is based on commercial off-the-shelf equipment, which makes parts ordering easier and less expensive than in the past. The new automation system is designed to make controlling air traf c easier and more user friendly then previous automation systems have for Air Traf c Controller operations, as well as provide enhanced security which makes any sort of malicious attack to the Air Traf c System more dif cult to perform and easier to detect.” The Support Radar Team will work with Raytheon and the FAA during the equipment installation, system acceptance testing and optimization of the systems during the coming months, Gregoire said. “While they are tasked with the work…we will be with them to gain more knowledge and familiarization with the system we will be responsible for maintaining upon acceptance of the system from USAKA.” Kwajalein’s tower is one of 240 Raytheon is erecting across the globe as part of a contract with the FAA and DoD, the most recent of which was built in Baghdad, Iraq. A testament to its construction, Gaved said, the tower built in Biloxi, Miss. withstood even Hurricane Katrina. By Mig Owens Assistant editorWhen completed, the Digital Airport Surveillance Radar tower is expected to scrape the sky at 112 feet, making it second in height only to Kwajalein’s water tower. Saturday, the rst main phase of the project was completed as a total of seven ten-foot, three-ton tower sections were assembled like pieces of the popular 1950s Erector Set toy, and then stacked to create a structure 70 feet tall. Tuesday, tower work involved af xing the 17-foot mezzanine section of the tower, which will house the equipment room for the radar and feed into the four ground-level buildings that will surround it. The Federal Aviation Administration radar, referred to as ASR11, is designed to replace existing radars on Kwajalein, as well as other Department of Defense and civilian air elds, in the interest of air traf c safety. San Juan Construction, which subcontracts with Raytheon to perform work on the tower and radar, employed the largest crane on island to assemble the tower, along with manpower and equipment from Kwajalein Range Services. Called the Manitowoc, the crane can lift up to 150 tons. As each section was lifted by crane, the tower sections were subsequently bolted down by the San Juan Construction crew. KRS and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Safety representatives watched the operation to ensure lift plans and job hazard analyses were being followed. Mike Moore, USAKA Installation Safety of cer said, “This demonstrates safety synergy where the work force and safety professionals come together to ensure on-the-job safety during a hazardous operation. Everyone is taking their time and doing it safely — just the way it was planned.” Construction of the tower was led by San Juan Construction Project Engineer Ray Henderson, who, according to Greg Horner, project superintendent, has extensive experience building towers throughout the world for more than 40 years. “It is his experience that has allowed this phase of the project to proceed ef ciently and without incident,” Horner said.

Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 M a r s h a l l e s e c u l t u r e t r a d i t i o n a l w a y s Marshallese culture, traditional ways d e v e l o p e d o v e r c e n t u r i e s o f i s l a n d l i v i n g developed over centuries of island living (Photos by Elizabeth Davie) C e l e b r a t i o n Celebration o f t r a d i t i o n of tradition M a n i t Manit D a y DayU By Mig Owens Assistant editorEditor’s note: This article is the third in a series that explores Marshallese history, government and culture. U Use of natural resources has always been a way of life for the Marshallese people, with basic survival dependant on skills passed from generation to generation. Also a way of life is reliance on family. Obligations and commitment to family are valued above all else, as is evident in most Marshallese celebrations. SkillLiving off the land, to which each and every Marshallese family has ownership and/or use rights somewhere in the Marshall Islands, originally meant subsistence shing, gathering and limited agriculture. “The islander’s resourcefulness is especially evident in their clever use of limited raw materials,” Cris Lindborg said. “Using mostly coconut, pandanus and hibiscus ber, they built their homes, wove clothes, mats and sails for the outriggers, and created beautiful baskets and ornaments. Marshallese weavings are some of the best in the Paci c.” Today, the subsistence lifestyle on outer atolls is heavily dependent on a money economy that brings food and other amenities, Lindborg explained in the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Marshallese Primer One way a traditional Marshallese practice now contributes to the economy is the creation and sale of handicrafts. Many of the handicrafts for which the Marshallese are famous were rst made by their ancestors for use in everyday life. Passed on by grandmother or mother to daughter and by grandfather or father to son, making of handicrafts is a hands-on learning process, Thompson Tarwoj, Bowling Center coordinator, said. A native of Ebiju, Ujae Atoll, 120 miles from Kwajalein, Tarwoj holds the title of Ujae counselman. He is related to women who travel from Ujae to Ebeye to make handicrafts. M a r s h a l l e s e j o u r n e y Left, Ato Langio spoke about navigation at the Manit Day celebration Monday at Emon Beach. George Gilbert, 5, takes a shot at weaving as Emato Albert looks on.


Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Flo Li tries to get some milk out of a coconut. 5See MARSHALLESE, Page 6Bira Romak was one of the many women weaving baskets at the beach during the Manit Day celebration Monday. “The women make automobile dash board mats, marmar (shell necklace), purses, sleeping mats, house decorations and more,” he said. “Iroj Mike Kabua [coordinator for the handicraft program on Ebeye] and the Kabua Family of Ebeye are preserving ‘Manit in Majol’ (Marshallese culture) and by promoting Marshallese handicrafts this helps keep the culture alive and still in use.” To the young Marshallese of Ebeye and all over the Marshall Islands, Tarwoj has a message. “Be proud of your culture and where you come from. Our ancestors are the best navigators in the world who traveled the vast ocean and reach these harsh islands and survived and we have been surviving till now. Our ancestors have occupied and united thousands of islands in the Marshalls from the past to now, we speak one language, have one culture and are united under common Irojs and democracy.” “You have to learn to balance both Western culture and Marshallese culture and bene t from both,” he said.Family At the heart of Marshallese culture is a erce loyalty to and reliance on family. The Marshallese family unit encompasses what Westerners consider the ‘nuclear family’ and much more, to include a person’s own parents plus their parents’ brothers and sisters, a person’s grandparents plus their brothers and sisters and so on. Cousins are considered brothers and sisters. Obligation to the family unit extends to these members of the family to include nancial support, child rearing, illness, birth and death. Marshallese have similar responsibilities toward their clan, or jowis. The root of the 30-60 Marshallese jowis can be traced back to a woman


Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 MARSHALLESE, from Page 5 who is referred to as the mother of that clan. The identity of a Marshallese is known rst and foremost by their home island, states the USAKA Marshallese Primer “Regardless of where they live, Marshallese are expected to offer nancial or other support for projects and activities on their home island, such as construction projects, religious, youth and sporting events.”CelebrationsCommitment to fam-ily is evident at first birthday celebrations, or kemem, graduations and wakes, or iiomej. “An example is that in Marshallese culture, your brothers, sisters and their spouses have the same responsibility you have as a parent towards your children,” Alan Taylor, RMI relations specialist, explained. “This greatly expands the notion of family, particularly when you contrast that with smaller concept of a Western nuclear family unit. For that reason, it’s not just a small group of people that participate in celebrations such as a kemem.” Manit Day, the Republic of the Marshall Islands holiday that literally means ‘Customs’ Day, celebrates traditional skills. This year’s celebration held Monday at Emon Beach featured displays on traditional foods, medicine, shing and navigation. Residents were also treated to live demonstrations of weaving, coconut husking, re making, tree climbing and making coconut rope. “Culture is a function of the in uence environmental factors have on a society over hundreds, if not thousands, of years. To the Marshallese great credit, they Timeline of important events in Marshallese culture 1857 American Protestant missionaries put the Marshallese language into writing for the rst time. 1866 Two Marshallese Christians from Epoon become the rst native teachers and missionaries to Jalwoj and Namdik. 1905 Protestant mission schools teach elementary students reading, writing and arithmetic in Marshallese. By 1905, there are 32 schools on 20 atolls. 1914 The Japanese introduce rice, tinned meat and noodles to the Marshalls. 1946 The U.S. Navy sets up the rst teacher training school on Kwajalein. 1960 The rst bilingual newspaper, the Marshall Islands Observer, is published by the Department of Education. 1962 WSZO, the rst radio station in the Marshalls, begins broadcasting. 1969 The rst telephone system is set up on Majuro. 1985 The College of Micronesia, Majuro campus, is established. 1994 Cellular phones are used for the rst time in the Marshalls. Weaving was among the many demonstrations at Emon Beach Monday. have adapted to life extremely well on small, atoll islands with limited resources and a harsh climatic conditionssubsistence living milieu,” Maj. Jeff Klein, Host Nation chief, said. “To do this, they had to work as a group. Their culture is based on sharing, mutual consideration and subjugating the pre-eminence of the individual to the family and extended clan. The fact you see no homeless speaks volumes for their society and the social safety net extended to all. In short, the Marshallese culture is a highly evolved amalgam; it is centuries of environmental adaptation that has produced a traditional society centered on the family and the systems designed to ensure the protection of the family. We should all seek to gain a greater understanding of our neighbors in order to appreciate the long road they have traveled.” (Information for this article was found in the Civic Achievement Award Program Student Resource Book, the Ebeye Orientation Tour packet and the United States Army Kwajalein Atoll Marshallese Primer.)
