Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2Earlier this year we had a letter in the ‘Hourglass’ from Faith Fullerton reminding us of our obligation to shake off our complacency – I guess that message did not take with those who make our movie selections. Fullerton reminded some on our island of the ‘role of traitor’ that jane fonda (intentional non-capitalization) played in real life during the Viet Nam con ict. During the Viet Nam con ict we lived with combat in our homes – every evening the media would bring those horrors to us and willingly we welcomed the news no matter how horrendous. For some, knowledge is better than wondering in ignorance…or is it? I can’t speak for all women of my era but I had friends who served willingly. There were those who came home physically whole but destroyed emotionally from the grief their countrymen gave them – direct from the media and in person when they were spat upon and cursed for being ‘baby killers,’ rapists, mass murderers and more, much more! Accused of being fools for ghting for their country – to protect those who now were destroying them and their families. I remember taking my children out of school to welcome home the Desert Storm warriors in a Chicago parade. When the Viet Nam vets marched by they were easily recognizable – many were in the uniforms from their tour of duty, their imprisonment and their rags of honor? of glory? of disrespect from many of their fellow citizens – in that long parade of many, many honored veterans our Viet Nam vets marched along in ragged lines -some were in bamboo cages, hair in long strands often clasped at the nape of their neck held by rags…they were a mess. “Why?” My children asked me. Why when all the other soldiers were in their neat uniforms, marching proudly? All I could say through my tears was, “Don’t ever treat your returning warriors as our country did when these wonderful men and women came home! You must honor them and praise them and thank them for your safety and your wonderful way of life!” Now, four of my ve children are in the military: Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy; three of the four have served in Iraq – one son is there right now as well as an ‘almost son-in-law.’ And, my fth child – she is our hub! As we all encircle the globe she is our stability – our messenger of hope and praise – she keeps our family burning for all to see and to come home to! How could I, just the mom, possibly survive without her strength? Do I worry for my children? Of course, I do! Do I honor their decisions to serve our country? You bet your sweet bippy I do! Thank God for the men and women who choose to defy our media and many of our government leaders – to defy them by serving our national family as well as our global family. I guess it is time to get to the point of this whole message. Recently we had a movie shown on our island – this U.S. Army military installation – starring fonda – the same traitor who caused so very much pain to our men and their families and to our entire country. Many in our country that chose to follow the example of a traitor albeit a traitor who never was punished for her actions…except by a few of us old diehards who just happen to remember and hold her accountable. I have never willingly supported fonda in her endeavors nor will I begin to do so now. Shame! Shame! Shame on those who choose not to remember and subject the rest of us to her aunting her freedoms before us! The very freedoms the men she deceived fought for her to have. Syvella Laverne Arthur, proud citizen of the United States of America – thank GodMilitary mother supports veterans The 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.

Ken Hall Army News ServiceWith Americans killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom surpassing 2,000, many Americans feel we are crossing a solemn threshold. “Each loss of life is heartbreaking,” said President George W. Bush Oct. 25 at an annual luncheon honoring military of cers and their wives at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. “And the best way to honor the sacri ce of our fallen troops is to complete the mission and lay the foundation of peace by spreading freedom.” Heroes are more than numbers to those left behind. News headlines depict the number as a “milestone,” but this may be a lackluster description to the seriousness and sensitivity of America’s loss of life. “The rst life lost was the milestone,” said retired Sgt. Maj. Gary G. Beylickhian, a combat veteran of the Korean War and Vietnam Con ict. “I’m not sure where the news organizations got the idea that 2,000 lives lost is a milestone. This is a reality that should be left out of semantics when we’re talking about real human beings here, not numbers.” One life lost is too manySee LIVES, Page 12


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2005 3Army News ServiceAn Iraqi police of cer owes his life to a U.S. Army medic who treated his wounds as terrorists red on their position Oct. 10. “I didn’t have time to think about it,” said Spc. Andrew “Doc” Suchanek, 1st Battalion, 87th Infantry, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. “I just knew I didn’t want that guy to get hurt even worse. I just reacted.” While on a routine patrol in west Baghdad, Iraq Suchanek and other Soldiers of C Company, 1/87 Infantry responded to assist Iraqi Police who had come under re from automatic ri es and rocket-propelled grenades. Encountering a critically-wounded police of cer, Suchanek began immediate life-saving treatment. Then a terrorist suddenly red an RPG at both of them. Without hesitation, Suchanek threw himself on the police of cer, shielding him from danger. The grenade exploded harmlessly and Suchanek continued treatment to save the life of the policeman. As his fellow Soldiers secured the area, Suchanek coordinated evacuation for his patient to a local hospital. American care for the wounded — civilian or military — does not end in the street, said Capt. Douglas Hermann, 1/87’s medical of cer. “Combat medics like Suchanek provide live-saving care, and under re,” Hermann said. “But the job isn’t done after the injured are pulled away from combat. Other medics respond after the casualty has left the front lines. There, other medics stabilize the injured and get them safely to a hospital.” The battalion medics at Forward Operating Base Hawk in Baghdad receive casualties and get them to the combat support hospital. Hermann said providing follow-up care and getting the wounded aboard medical helicopters are life-saving tasks. “These medics do their job with amazing speed and motivation,” he added. “They know mere minutes can mean life and death to their patients.”U.S. Army medic saves Iraqi policemanBy David Vergun Army News Service He became a legend in the Army, as well as in his native Comanche tribe in Oklahoma. Charles Chibitty, 84, the last of the Comanche code talkers, died July 20 this year in Tulsa, Okla. He also reportedly was the last hereditary chief of the Comanche, having descended from the great leader, Chief Ten Bears. Code talkers is the term used to describe Soldiers from various Indian tribes who communicated on radios, telephones and telegraph during World Wars I and II. They spoke in their own languages and dialects, many of which were not written down and all of which were indecipherable by enemy forces. Chibitty was among the 17 Comanche code talkers who served throughout the European Theater during World War II with the 4th Signal Company, 4th Infantry Division. Since there were many military words that had no meaning in the Comanche language, Chibitty and other Soldiers had to invent their own unique military lingo. For example, they used the Comanche word for “turtle” to signify “tank.” Chibitty saw plenty of ghting at the landings at Utah Beach during the D-Day Normandy invasion in June 1944. He immediately put his skills to use, directing aircraft and naval gun re to targets and informing other Comanche code breakers at higher headquarters of the tactical situation on the ground and relaying information back to his unit commander. Chibitty survived the landings and saw a lot more action throughout France and during the Battle of the Bulge. He and his unit were among the rst Americans to liberate Paris and later to enter Germany. In addition to code talking, Chibitty became a champion boxer in the Army. Later in life, he became a much acclaimed and prize-winning Comanche war dancer. The French presented Chibitty and other Comanche code talkers with their second-highest medal for valor, the Chevalier de L’Ordre National du Merite. In 1999, the Department of Defense recognized Chibitty who was then 78 and the last surviving member of the Comanche code talkers. He was honored in the Hall of Heroes inside the Pentagon for his extraordinary bravery and achievements. At the ceremony, he didn’t dwell much on his own combat actions, preferring rather to speak of the achievements of his fellow Comanche code talkers. He recounted the story of one code talker who was wounded in the back with shrapnel. That Soldier refused to be evacuated to the rear and continued to ght and code talk. His wounds were treated and he survived the war. Other Comanche code talkers were wounded as well, but all survived the ghting.Code talker answered ‘call to duty’ Charles Chibitty, 84, last of the Comanche code talkers from World War II, died July 20.

By Uncle Fester Island ghoulWhile many souls made ready for the ghoulish activities to come later in the night on Monday, die-hard members of the Kwajalein SCUBA Club continued their Halloween celebration by trying their hand at underwater pumpkin carving. The would-be hyperbaric vegetable surgeons competed for the $50 prizes bestowed upon the waterlogged orange globe voted wackiest, scariest and most original. Many young and notso-young KSC friends showed up to provide sound judgment after a ‘call for judges’ went out last week to Casey Schuh’s second grade class who spread the word school-wide. Dive Master and Safety Officer Mike Malone ensured that identical numbers of live souls entered and exited the water. Alex Britain and Kwaj-John Ramer co-chaired this year’s festivities receiving assistance from Dive Masters Dick Nugent, Bill Williamson and many others. The youngest souls enjoyed candy and drink. Competing cutters discovered early on how uncooperative the ‘Jack-O-Lanterns-to-be’ could be. Despite clever weighting techniques, the onshore onlookers were entertained by the surface-broaching wrestling moves observed and the periodic orange bobbles jettisoned to the surface trying to become airborne. All that attended became judges and cast their votes: • Wackiest SCUBA Divers were Steve and Donna Simpson • Most Original was a tie between the team of Amy Brouwer and Julie Atkinson and Eric Everts. • Scariest was nearly unanimously chosen to be the ‘Hungry Shark’ pumpkin by Jayne Cavender displaying recently swallowed human tidbits and a dorsal fin. • Cherice and Cassia Griswold displayed their island-recognized talent for transforming refuse to art with their entry of ‘Ms. Junk-O-Lantern’ pumpkin.Buoyancy befuddles punkin’carvers Tommy Corbin, 5, Anji Manini, 6 and Sasako Brady, 5, ham it up following a costume parade and their classroom party Saturday at George Seitz Elementary School.


Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Taking care Smoking linked to lung cancer By Amanda Curits, RN and Ingle LeBlanc, RN, CCRN Kwajalein HospitalYou know you should, you’ve seen the commercials, the statistics; you know it is bad for you, it would be so hard, and continuing makes you feel good, you like it. November is Lung Cancer Awareness month and Nov. 17 is The Great American Smoke out. This is an annual event dedicated to helping smokers quit cigarettes for at least one day, in hopes they will quit forever. Lung cancer is responsible for 30 percent of all cancer deaths and will kill more people this year than breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer and melanoma combined. Approximately 85 percent of all lung cancers are in people who smoke or who have smoked. Tobacco addiction is the leading risk factor in the development of lung cancer. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 different chemicals, many of which are proven carcinogens (substances that cause cancer). Approximately 123,386 lung cancer deaths a year are due to smoking. To get ready to quit smoking, ask yourself these three questions: • Why do I want to quit smoking? • What method will I use to quit smoking? • How do I stay smoke free? Then create a plan. You may want to discuss ways to quit with your health care professional – ‘cold turkey,’ gradual quitting or Nicotine Replacement Therapy (gum/patch). When choosing an appropriate tool, consider these factors: • How long you’ve been smoking • How many cigarettes you smoke a day • What triggers your urge to smoke • Whether you smoke on a regular schedule or randomly • Whether you experience intense morning cravings • Whether you’ve tried to quit in the past • Why you had problems quitting or staying off cigarettes Don’t keep your intention to quit a secret. Tell your friends and family you are trying to quit. Keep cigarettes, lighters, matches and ashtrays out of your home. Ask friends and family not to smoke around you. The American Cancer Society offers programs to help you through your quit attempt. Its hotline is 1-800-ACS-2345. If you already have lung cancer, the Lung Cancer Alliance has a toll free information and referral service at 1-800-298-2436. You may obtain information and counseling through Kwajalein Hospital. The Employee Assistance Program clinical psychologist may also be contacted at 55362. Statistics and information obtained from The American Cancer Society at: and the Lung Cancer Alliance: Care packages appreciated by troopsKwajalein American Legion Auxiliary Press releaseKwajalein’s American Legion Auxiliary is once again preparing to send care packages to troops stationed overseas, as it has done twice in the past 18 months, according to Amy LaCost, auxiliary president. “We are looking for Kwajalein and Ebeye residents who have loved ones serving in our armed forces overseas in places like Iraq and Afghanistan,” LaCost said. “You may have a son or daughter, cousin, sister, brother, husband or grandchild who is serving and would like to receive a nice care package from the Ladies Auxiliary.” LaCost said seven care packages have been sent to Soldiers and Sailors overseas to date. “They have a dangerous and demanding job, they are far from family and I’m sure it gets lonely and scary there. We want to send them a little bit of home and to let them know we care about them and the job they are doing to protect us from terrorists and to help bring democracy to people who have never experienced it. We put in various treats and toiletries and we have gotten some responses from the recipients thanking us for our efforts.” Name, rank and address of the loved one is all that See CARE, Page 12

Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 12 (Courtesy photo) What numbers really represent Many media have reported 2,000 combat deaths in Iraq, but about 22 percent of the casualties are actually non-combat-related, including accidents and illnesses. In addition, not many newspapers mention the more than 200 of America’s best who have also paid the ultimate price in Operation Enduring Freedom, in and around Afghanistan. Picking up pieces in wake of war Thousands more wounded in the War on Terror have returned home to families and communities, some with permanent, life-long injuries. As media organizations keep pace with the numbers of casualties and anger felt by a bereaving nation, critical and compassionate family support is taking place behind the scenes. One injury or life lost today will be just as important as yesterday’s casualties or those we may endure tomorrow in order to achieve a nal, lasting victory in the War on Terror.
