Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglasscommunity spirit, and some of us even became ‘one’ with nature… it has truly been a great year! As we celebrate this holiday season with our families, our entire nation will re ect on the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, Merchant Marines and department civilians and contracted employees standing in harm’s way so that we may celebrate in peace. Too many of our uniformed and un-uniformed service men and women will spend yet another Christmas at posts far from home – without the sights and sounds that we enjoy here on Kwajalein. They are American heroes who serve the cause of peace and freedom. They wear their respective ‘uniforms’ proudly, and we are proud of them. With so many holiday events over the next three weeks, I ask that you stay safe. Check your smoke detectors in your homes and bachelor quarter rooms, and check the wires on your Christmas lights. Be happy this holiday season. Know that your sacri ces are truly appreciated, and know that you are among friends. 2 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. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll.

At the beginning of the month we lit the community Christmas tree, of cially opening the holiday season. We have had a really great year. Kwajalein Range Services achieved a rst-ever 365 days without a major recordable accident or injury…a rst for Kwajalein. We have launched missiles into space, knocked a few down and sat on the edge of our seats waiting for others to ignite. We have hosted distinguished visitors from within the armed services, from the corporate sector, and from the Department of State and Congress and foreign nations. We have tightened our belts in the face of budget cuts – and survived the slashing with grace and a prayer. We have laughed on the good days, cried on the sad days and remained politically neutral in the rain. We have re-kindled relationships with old friends and bid fond farewells to others. We have watched our amazing children grow and we have taken the opportunity to just be with our families. We have tagged turtles for monitoring, saved the life of a spinner dolphin, solemnly and carefully unearthed, blessed and re-buried remains of the ravages of war and we hugged those most important to us, blessed that we made it through another year. We’ve christened boats and babies, celebrated birthdays and anniversaries, mourned the loss of loved ones, shared We would like to thank all those who participated in the nativity display. We had many compliments about how beautiful it was and everyone enjoyed the nativities from all around the world. We would like to thank everyone for entrusting us with their nativities. We hope this will continue for years and become a Kwajalein tradition. Thank you again, — The members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day SaintsTo Phil Malloy’s Buildings and Grounds crew for keeping the island beautiful.CORRECTIONIn the Dec. 7 issue, two text columns of John Pickler’s commentary, ‘Remember Pearl Harbor’ was the nation’s call to arms, were accidentally inverted during the layout process.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2005 3Don’t go phishing New phony e-mail scam targets Army Web serviceHourglass reportsThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the rm named below, recently announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. This product was not sold in Kwajalein Range Services retail departments according to David Fearon, KRS retail acting manager.• Name of product: Bobby Jack(tm) pajama set • Units: approximately 18,800 sets • Importer: J & F Design, Inc., of Bell, Calif. • Sold at: J.C. Penney stores nationwide from April through June for about $15. These pajamas sets fail to meet the federal mandatory standard for ammability of children’s sleepwear under the Flammable Fabrics Act. This poses a risk of burn injuries to children. No incidents or injuries have been reported. The recalled pajama sets include a tank top and a pair of shorts. Made of a polyester and cotton blend, the pajamas were sold in four colors: green, fuchsia, light blue and light pink in sizes extra small through extra large. The pajama tops have a large, rubber decal of one or more monkeys on the front, and the bottoms have a monkey print on them. A label on the inside of the garment reads, ‘Bobby by BobbyJack.’ The product was manufactured in China. Consumers should immediately stop wearing these pajama sets and return them to any J.C. Penney store for a full refund.Children’s pajamas recalled for fire-safety failureHourglass reportsArmy Knowledge Online users are targeted potential victims of a new Internet scam. “In this particular scam, the AKO login page at was duplicated and emails were sent to some personnel requesting that they login and verify their information. Once you enter your username and password, the information is used to access the Army portal and possibly more of your personal information, or information meant for Army personnel only,” said Scott Dixon, information assurance security of cer for Kwajalein Range Services Information Technology. According to an e-mail sent out by AKO to users, security and information assurance on Army networks and using Army sites is of utmost concern in this time of war. It also stated, “The enemy really is out there and really does want access to Army web services. To protect Army Data and services, we must all work together.” The e-mail also asked users to be careful with personal information. “As you use AKO and other Army services, we ask you to keep the following in mind: Protect your credentials: Your user ID and password are your identity within AKO and over 500 af liated Army services. You should protect them just like a credit card number or bank account number. Never tell anyone else your password, and do not write it down. Check the URL: When you go to AKO or any Web site, make sure you look at the Web address that appears in the location bar at the top of your browser. If you are genuinely looking at AKO, that address will in all cases begin with If you have any doubt whatsoever, type the URL into your browser yourself or use a bookmark that you have previously created.” Not just AKO users are at risk for such scams. “Across the Internet, criminals are constantly attempting to get your personal information. This is sometimes accomplished through a set of techniques known as ‘phishing.’ This technique has also been used to mimic retail establishments and banks, such as the fraudulent Citibank e-mails. Phishing also includes trojan keyloggers installed on your computer by running something as innocent as “Elf Bowling” or other freeware applications,” Dixon said. “It is important to always protect your personal information, and remember that your bank will not ask for your password, so if you receive an e-mail claiming to be your bank or other establishment, call them to make sure the e-mail is valid before you visit the Webpage, and to help protect yourself from hidden software being installed, stay away from freeware and games you may receive attached to your e-mail.”

Alan Taylor [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations Of ce] told me that the kids look forward to it and talk about the party in anticipation for weeks before the event,” she said. The children were treated to a day of fun including hermit crab races, a water balloon toss, Slip ‘n Slide, swimming, bounce castle, arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus, receiving gift bags, picture taken with Santa Claus, musical performances by several church groups, food, drink and much more. After meeting with Santa Claus, the children all received an age and sex appropriate gift bag. According to Cousins, the gift bags contained items such as dresses or skirts and blouses for girls, shorts sets for boys, ip ops, pencils, toys, games, candy, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hair scrunchies and combs and travel shampoo and soaps. Fingernail polish and underwear were added to the gift bags this year. Each child was given a Polaroid photo of themselves and Santa. The Kwajalein Girl Scouts helped pass out the goodie bags. “Also new this year were diaper bags for mothers with infants. The diaper bags included diapers, wash cloths, infant T-shirts and babywipes,” Cousins said. After meeting with Santa Clause, some of the children preformed for the crowd. They sang and danced with enthusiasm as a way of saying thank you. According to Cousins, the water balloon toss, golf A By Elizabeth Davie Reporterpproximately 380 children traveled to Roi-Namur Monday to take part in the Ennubirr Children’s Christmas party. This event was hosted by the Ennubirr Children’s Christmas Fund committee. The committee works year-round to raise money with events such as the Roi Chili Cook-Off and takes donations. According to Stephenia Cousins, ECCF vice president, the committee collected approximately $17,000 for this year’s party. “The sole purpose of

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass By Amanda Curtis and Inge Leblanc Kwajalein HospitalThe year-end holidays are an exciting time of year for children, and to help ensure they have a safe holiday season, here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Trees • When purchasing an arti cial tree, look for the label ‘Fire Resistant.’ • When purchasing a live tree, check for freshness because a fresh tree is less of a re hazard. The tree should be green, needles are hard to pull from branches and when bent between your ngers, needles do not break. The trunk butt should be sticky with resin, and when tapped on the ground, the tree should not lose many needles. • Cut a few inches off the trunk of your tree to expose the fresh wood. This allows for better water absorption and will help to keep your tree from drying out and becoming a re hazard. • Place the tree out of the way of traf c and don’t allow it to block doorways. • Be sure to keep the stand lled with water. Lights • Never use electric lights on a metallic tree. The tree can become charged with electricity from faulty lights, and a person touching a branch could be electrocuted. • Before using lights outdoors, check labels to be sure they are certi ed for outdoor use. To hold lights in place, string them through hooks or insulated staples, not nails or tacks. Never pull or tug lights to remove them. • Check all tree lights—even if you’ve just purchased them—before 6 hanging them on your tree. Make sure all the bulbs work and there are no frayed wires, broken sockets or loose connections. • Plug all outdoor electric decorations into circuits with ground fault circuit interrupters to avoid potential shocks. • Turn off all lights when you go to bed or leave the house. The lights could short out and start a re. Decorations • Use only non-combustible or ameresistant materials to trim a tree. Choose tinsel or arti cial icicles of plastic or nonleaded metals. • In homes with small children, take special care to avoid decorations that are sharp or breakable, keep trimmings with small removable parts out of the reach of children to avoid the child swallowing or inhaling small pieces. Avoid trimmings that resemble candy or food that may tempt a child to eat them. • Wear gloves to avoid eye and skin irritation while decorating with spunglass ‘an gel hair.’ Follow container directions carefully to avoid lung irritation while decorating with arti cial snow sprays. • Remove all wrapping papers, bags, paper, ribbons and bows from tree area after gifts are opened. These items can pose suffocation and choking hazards to a small child. Toy safety • Select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interest level of the intended child. Toys too advanced may pose safety hazards for younger children. • Before buying a toy or allowing your child to play with a toy he has received as a gift, read the instructions carefully. • To prevent both burns and electrical shocks, don’t give young children (under 10) a toy that must be plugged into an electrical outlet. Instead, buy toys that are battery -operated. • Children under 3 can choke on small parts contained in toys or games. Government regulations specify that toys for children under 3 cannot have parts less than 1 1/4 inches in diameter and 2 1/4 inches long. • Children under 8 can choke or suffocate on unin ated or broken balloons. Remove strings and ribbons from toys before giving them to young children. • Watch for pull toys with strings that are more than 12 inches in length. They could be a strangulation hazard for babies. Happy visiting • Clean up immediately after a holiday party. A toddler could rise early and choke on leftover food or come in contact with alcohol or tobacco. • Remember the homes you visit may not be childproofed. Keep an eye out for danger spots. • Traveling, visiting family members, getting presents, shopping, etc., can all increase your child’s stress levels. Sticking to your child’s usual routines, including sleep schedules and timing of naps, can help you and your child enjoy the holidays and reduce stress.
