Wednesday, March 1, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2 The Kwajalein 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. 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.

We never could have managed such an event without your help. We especially want to thank Sarah Simpson and Linn Ezell for being an integral part of planning and organizing the event. Heartfelt thanks, also, go to: Community Activities for support with the bowling, kayaking and swim challenges and for equipment; the Emergency Operations Center for communication assistance; the Running Club for their signs; Bob Butz for the golf challenge; Laura Alves, Lora Kendrick and Becky Ladd for the tie-dyed shirts; the chapel for the sound system and overall support; and the more than 40 adult volunteers who monitored each challenge and provided food. Additionally, we could not have managed without Jeff Childers, who was our trouble-shooter and ‘go to’ guy. Finally, we want to thank the 37 terri c teenagers who participated with such enthusiasm and made the day fun for all of us. It is a joy to be a part of the Kwajalein community! John and Karen PicklerWhat’s more rampant on this island (and probably on Roi-Namur) than rumors? You guessed it, its opinions. Everyone has one. Seems that most people have countless opinions on any given subject. Anytime you get more than two people together you have multiple opinions. Sometimes its fun to toss a sensitive subject in the ring and watch faces turn red, listen to voices rising and then the blustering begins. I could mention a couple of hot topics here, but I’m sure you all know what they are. We all feel strongly about our opinions. Since we are all diverse individuals living and working in close con nes, it’s not unexpected that opinions might vary and tempers might blow. But what I don’t understand is why folks don’t use one of the most visual formats available to share their opinions with the community. It’s called The Hourglass That’s right: This little paper that prints every Wednesday and Saturday. Page 2 is dedicated to editorials, letters to the editor, commentaries and opinion pieces. You write it and we will print it. Well, not everything, but almost. Here are some subjects we won’t touch: • Religious bias – you can’t write to us about how you prefer one religion over the other. We don’t go there. • Cultural bias – ditto on that subject. We are all created equally. • Political statements – we won’t pick sides, and won’t print your political preferences. • Personal attacks – we’re not going to gang up on one person. Even if you don’t mention a name, if we can tell who you are talking about then we won’t print your opinion. All submissions must have the author’s name on them. If you’re kind of shy and you don’t want your name printed in the paper, ask us to withhold it. But if you submit something to us without a name it will end up in the trash. We got a great letter a month or so ago. It was wonderfully written and seemed to make a lot of sense. But there was no name on it so we couldn’t run it. We didn’t even know who to call to ask them to put their name on it. As Bill O’Reilly always says, “keep it pithy.” We prefer all submissions to be not more than 300 words. And while a subject might need several opinions; we can only run one subject twice. So if we print someone’s letter and then rebuttals to that letter, that’s it. We’ve maxed out the twice-on-one subject rule. We will edit what you submit. We have style requirements. We write and publish The Hourglass in accordance to Army Regulations. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to see more opinions in the paper. So get writing. Nell Drumheller L e t t e r f r o m t h e e d i t o r Letter from the editor Speak upYou’ve got something to say, right? Don’t keep your opinions to yourself


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 1, 2006 3 Army News Service ReleaseThe Army began implementing Common Access Card Cryptographic Logon last month and will soon require a common access card and personal identi cation number, or PIN, to log onto the Army’s unclassi ed network. By March, about 10,000 Army users, including most Pentagon staffers, are expected to be logging onto their computer network by scanning their card. By summer, implementation should be Armywide, G6 of cials said. “Protecting identity is critical as the Army moves forward to deliver a joint net-centric, information enterprise,” said Lt. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle, chief information of cer/G6. “One of the greatest vulnerabilities of our networks is posed by weak user names and passwords,” Boutelle said. “Spyware or keystroke tracking software can steal your username and password, and even your PIN. It cannot steal your CAC. The Army’s goal is to eliminate the use of username and password.” Before the CAC logon is implemented across the Army, workshops will be offered, G6 of cials said. CAC logon allows users to be authenticated with something they know -their PIN, and something they have -a CAC, of cials said. CAC is a type of smart card with electronic information about an owner and digital public key infrastructure, or PKI certi cates that insure identity. Part of the CIO/G6 mission is to protect and defend the Army systems, networks and information, of cials said. Key to that mission is reducing vulnerability of the unclassi ed network through security measures such as CCL, they said. CCL also meets the directives on identity protection published by the Army vice chief of staff in 2005 and the president’s 2004 Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12. Recently, the Department of Defense’s Joint Task Force Global Network Operations started accelerating PKI implementation throughout the DoD. In the near future, the Army’s intranet Army Knowledge Online also will require CAC logon, of cials said. They said the Army is currently testing and vetting the capability to use CAC logon outside Army networks.Army begins Common Access Card logon for government computersAccident under investigation Community saddened by local death By Nell Drumheller EditorDanny Lajouj, 33, an employee of Chugach Development Corp., a teaming-partner of Kwajalein Range Services, died Friday in an explosion at the Marine Department Dry Dock. According to Maj. Johnny Davis, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll provost marshal, “a comprehensive investigation which will include members from the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigations Division, Hawaii, will be done.” He added that the investigation will be concluded as quickly as possible and “all avenues will be reviewed.” Lajouj was a Marshallese employee who began working as a laborer in the Marine Department almost 10 years ago, when Raytheon was the USAKA primary contractor. “He successively became a deck hand and then a painter, which was his position when the accident occurred,” John Pickler, KRS president said. “Janet Burki [KRS deputy manager for logistics] and I met with members of his family shortly after the accident and again later to express our condolences,” Pickler said. Pickler added that Lajouj was working as a painter in the port ballast tank of the LCU Manassas when an explosion of unknown origin occurred. One other painter was working just outside the vessel with Lajouj at the time of the explosion, and he was not injured. Davis described Kwajalein Police Department’s responsibilities at the scene of the accident, “Our rst response is to provide security for the re department and clearing the area, being cognizant of a possible secondary blast and to maintain a thoroughfare for any other emergency personal and/or equipment needed on the scene, also keep any unnecessary parties out, for their own safety and the integrity of the scene so an investigation can be completed then, turned over to the safety investigators,” he said. He added that the priority at the scene is the safety of the emergency responders and any possible victims in whatever type of incident they are called upon. “Obtaining correct information will be achieved as these folks are allowed to concentrate their efforts; we owe this to any victims,” Davis said. After the KPD nished its initial site investigation, members of KRS Environment, Health & Safety began their investigation in the area. “The purpose of the ES&H investigation is to nd out what happened and correct it, so nothing like this can happen again,” according to Jeff Halliday, acting public affairs of cer for KRS. The accident is under investigation. According to Davis, prior to this accident, the last accident-related death on Kwajalein was in 2003 when a bicyclist ramped into a tree and died as a result of his injuries to the head.


Wednesday, March 1, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 YouthsÂ’ agility, strategy challenged KwajaleinÂ’s Amazing RaceBy Lisa BarbellaAmazing Race participant T here were 37 excited ninth through 12th graders packed into the home of John and Karen Pickler on Sunday in anticipation of KwajaleinÂ’s first-ever Amazing Race. Some of the participants painted their faces and colored their hair to show team spirit and each of the eight teams were given tie-dyed team shirts before they lined up outside to receive their first clue and begin the event. The race participants showed their enthusiasm with cheers for their teams and for the race sponsors. The Picklers, who lead the Senior High Youth Fellowship on island, came up with the concept for The Amazing Race several months ago while brainstorming fun activities to shake up the weekly youth fellowship meetings. The idea came from the popular television show The Amazing Race in which teams race around the world and take part in challenges along the way. It took about two months and 40 volunteers to put together the race that would take the kids all around the island and test them with physical Win Keller and Leah Simpson balance a softball as they go under a table to complete a task so they can get another clue in SundayÂ’s Kwajalein Amazing Race.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 1, 2006 5 and mental challenges throughout. Organizing the race was a challenge in itself but with the support of so many community members and organizations including the Emergency Operations Center, Community Activities and the Running Club, it was pulled off without a hitch. The participants were given a clue at the completion of each challenge to direct them to their next location and experience. There were 14 challenges in all that took the teams from Emon Beach all the way to the Shark Pit. Some of the challenges required physical prowess such as diving for rings at the family pool, relay racing through the terminal, and kayaking to North Point. Others, such as solving a number puzzles at The Weather Station and playing word games at the Public Gardens, required the racers to use their mental abilities. “The ball balancing relay was the hardest,” explained participant Michael Hillman, “When we finished I was really proud.” The competitors surprised everyone involved by finishing a full hour before expected. The race began at 1 p.m., the first team arrived at the Community Activities Center Room 6 finish line approximately 3 hours later. Each finishing team was greeted at Bunker Hill by a cheering crowd where they completed their final challenge, wheelbarrow racing up the hill, rolling down the other side, and sprinting to the CAC. The teams, exhausted from the heat and the challenges as well as riding their bikes several miles to reach all the locations, were surprised with a potluck dinner at the end. The top three teams were honored during the dinner and the top two teams won gift certificates. The first place team consisted of two Juniors Jeremy Beckler and Michael Taylor and two Seniors Amber Banducci and Katie Funk. “I think we worked really well together and were all really motivated. We supported each other in the competitions and just had fun,” said Banducci of her team. The race was considered a success by those involved. Many participants agreed the best part of the race was the end because they could look back on what they had accomplished. Karen Pickler expressed, “My favorite part was watching the kids come into the finish line and seeing that they had a good time and were challenged.” The racers were challenged but also grateful to the people who made the day possible, which was evident in the final cheers and letters of thanks that concluded the event. Ryan Wagner lls takes aim on a bucket held by a team member several feet away. This was one of the many stops in Sunday’s Kwajalein Amazing Race. Katie Funk, Jeremy Beckler and Michael Taylor construct a tower made of odd-size wood pieces. They were members of the winning team.


Wednesday, March 1, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 By Van Williams Defense Reutilization and Marketing ServiceWorking in partnership with federal agencies and Indiana University, Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service brings new life to old equipment, helping scientists half a world apart in Indiana and the middle of the Pacific Ocean.The wake-up callThe United States received a rude wake-up call from the Soviet Union in 1957, with the launch of the ‘Sputnik’ satellite. As the small device orbited the earth, sending out a beeping signal, U.S. military leaders realized they were in the slow lane of the space race. Millions of dollars poured into missile technology. By 1961, Clear Air Force Station, Alaska, came online as part of a Ballistic Missile Early Warning System. Three large detection antennas, 400 feet wide by 165 feet high, weighing 2 million pounds, became the station’s trademark. On Dec. 15, 2000, after nearly 40 years of operation, the last of the original radars came off-line.Old, but still usefulCreative minds found a way to use that 1960’s technology to help protect our nation and further scientific research. In August 2004, a team of 20 people from the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Reagan Test Site, the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Ind. and Indiana University’s Cyclotron Facility arrived in Alaska to harvest the equipment. The university facility received several pieces of equipment, including a 15,000-pound transformer, according to their project leader Tom Rinckel. “A single klystron tube costs $250,000 new and we needed four tubes plus spares,” Rinckel said. “We appreciate acquiring these recycled items… our project could not be completed without the reuse of these large cost items.”Greetings from ‘Edge of Tomorrow’The Reagan Test Site is a long way from Indiana, a long way from Alaska, a long way from almost anywhere. Located on Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, as the seagull flies it is only a few miles from the international dateline. It is also on the cutting edge of missile-interceptor development, space surveillance and satellite tracking. The site reutilized more than $4 million in equipment from Alaska. Working together, DRMS provided equipment for a university research project; supported the Naval Surface Warfare Center and RTS. Good partnerships lead to good stewardship and service to both the academic and defense department scientific communities.Back from 60s New life for old equipment Large radar screens searched the skies as part of a missile detection network.Parts from Clear Air Station, Alaska are ready to be shipped to Indiana University and Reagan Test Site, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands.

Shauna Rohbock, a member of the Utah Army National Guard, won Silver in the Women’s Bobsled competition as the pilot of USA-1 at the XX Winter Olympics Feb. 14. Rohbock, who is in the National Guard Outstanding Athlete Program, completed the competition at Cesana Pariol in the Italian Alps with a four-run combined time of 3 minutes, 50.69 seconds – .71 seconds behind the Gold medal winner. “I’m ecstatic and I hope our Four-Man team can pull one out too,” Rohbock said. Ranked third in World Cup points for Bobsled, the administration specialist is a former bobsled brakeman and was an alternate to the U.S. Bobsled team for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. For this year’s Games Valerie Fleming joined her on USA-1 to operate the brakes. “We got together in 2003,” Rohbock said. “She’s not just a teammate but a best friend as well.” I have all the con dence in the world of Shauna,” added Fleming. Because she has competed against most of the other women in the bobsled circuit, Rohbock understood she had to be at her best if she was going to win a medal at the Olympics. Before her rst run, she watched Germany-1 set a new track record of 57.16 and Canada-1 put up a new push record of 5.16. She answered with a 5.28 push and a run time of 57.37 and closed the night with a two-run total of 1:55.02. “It’s amazing after the rst day to be sitting in third place,” she said. “I know if I have two more good, consistent runs and get down a little bit on that start, I can be right up there on the medal stand.” Tuesday, the National Guard athlete got her wish. She opened the evening’s competition by sliding one of the straightest lines of the event. Her push time for run three was 5.30. She slid solidly into second place with a run time of 57.78. Germany-1 kept the heat on, though. That team’s run time of 57.34 helped them extend their lead to .53 sec-Spc. Shauna Rohbock, a member of the National Guard Outstanding Athlete Program, along with brakeman Valerie Fleming, pushes USA-1 off the starting line at the bobsled track at Cesana Pariol in the Italian Alps. Rohbock and Fleming nished the Women’s Bobsled competition in the XX Winter Olympics in second place to take home Silver for the United States. (Photo by Jack L. Gillund)onds. On her nal run, Rohbock’s slid solidly into second with a push of 5.31 and a run time of 57.18. Sixteen sleds from 10 countries started the competition – 15 nished. Sandra Kiriasis and Anja Schneiderheinze of Germany won Gold with a four-run time of 3:49.98. Gerda Weissensteiner and Jennifer Isacco put down a combined time of 3:51.01 to win Bronze for Italy.
