Wednesday, March 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2The 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 11 men on my team are doing important work that will help bring all U.S. service people home sooner and they are doing it from a very austere and dangerous little forward operating base located in a Sunni enclave along the Tigris River. We have no dining facility much less a Burger King, Taco Bell or even a Yukwe Yuk Club. The 100 plus U.S. Infantry Soldiers are packing to leave so it will be Team Lewis and 573 Kurds. Your goodies and supplies are a welcome treat, but even more welcome is the message of love and support. All of my men appreciate the package, but it means even more to me because I know you and know how special the Kwaj community is. So thanks especially to Mary, Wendy, Pamela, Sandy and Amy for your kindness from afar. Sincerely, Lt. Col. David S. Coffey, Special Forces 1/3/4 Iraqi Army Senior AdvisorThis article is going to cost me. In the last couple of weeks, my name and picture has popped up in The Hourglass Now, IÂ’m submitting my own piece so this will be the third time in as many weeks that IÂ’ve shown up in print. Occasionally, IÂ’ll drop by the fire station and see what the firefighters are doing. On one of my recent visits they told me if your name shows up in the paper, you owe everybody ice cream. As far as I know, this only applies to the fire department. I guess this is the price of fame.I actually enjoy being well known in the community. When I ride down the street or walk downtown I like saying hello to lots of people. Mostly, it gives me a feeling of being among friends. Sure, I donÂ’t know many people that well. Some are just vague acquaintances, but our common experience of Kwaj makes us more than just another town or group of people. ItÂ’s like the show Cheers from several years ago. We live in a place where everybody knows your name. Sometimes weÂ’ll run into each other in Honolulu or Huntsville, Ala. and weÂ’ll be glad to see a familiar face.Of course, there are those times when you donÂ’t want to see a familiar face. Once in a while, weÂ’d like to be very anonymous and thatÂ’s hard to do on this small island. At just the wrong time we will look up and see someone we wish was not looking at us. Ice cream can be price of fame C o m m e n t a r y Commentary I canÂ’t remember ever losing my wallet. However on this Island I have lost it twice. On both occasions it was returned to me with everything intact. I want to thank the two individuals who have honor and integrity, Roy Middleton and Of cer Brian Welsh (Kwajalein Police Department). I assume the bicycle seat wiggled the wallet out of my back pocket. Let this be a lesson to you pedal pushing wallet carriers. Keep your wallet in your front pocket. Jerry Riesenbeck

Kwajalein residents were treated to another display of the many talents of local photographers. More than 300 photographs were open for public viewing on in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room at the high school. According to Bean, Harris was the driving force behind this exhibit; he wanted to provide a forum so all of the Kwajalein Atoll photographers could display their photographs to the public and at the same time wanted the public’s involvement in the initial selection of photographs for all future Kwaj calendars. “We had another great turn out. This year we also included complimentary coffee and water provided by Kwajalein Range Services and Harris. We also invited the Kwajalein International Club to do a fund raiser/bake sale for the American Cancer Society, which was a huge success thanks to the generous donations given by residents,” Bean said. More than 200 ballots were turned in with votes in the six different categories of Kwajalein Atoll Living; Recreation; Nature, Mission and Holidays. In addition, there was an Open category to show any photograph unrelated to the other categories. See PHOTOS, Page 4

Each of the exhibitor’s photos that are chosen to be in the 2007 calendar will receive two free copies of the 2007 Kwaj Calendar. Photographers will be contacted my Retail if their photos are chosen.All exhibitors who did not remove their photos from the event can pick them up at Macy’s back counter. “Dave and I appreciate all the help supplied by the people from Macy’s and Macy’s West in the installation and administration of this event. We couldn’t have done this without their support! We hope to continue this event annually with the proper support of the community. We look forward to next year,” Bean said.PHOTOS, from Page 31st place Open: Lost Soul, Judy Shimamoto

Wednesday, March 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6As the chaplain, I’m often held to a higher standard. People expect me to act a certain way just because of my office. Another way I put is, “I’m paid to be good while you’re good for nothing.” I’d like to be thought of as a regular guy, someone who can relate to real life. Still, I prefer a bit of anonymity. Sometimes, if I wear a Tshirt, sunglasses and a hat, I can walk right by a friend and not be noticed. Hopefully, I’m doing the right thing regardless of who recognizes me. At the end of the day, I really enjoy our closeknit community. I like be connected to our island home on Kwaj even with all its eccentricities. I’ll even accept the risks of a little notoriety. Of course, the firefighters tell me if I make it on American Forces Network TV, I owe them a pizza party. Guys, for now you’ll have to settle for more ice cream.PRICE, from Page 6 Kwajalein Range Services Automotive announcementThe island tram will have reduced passenger capacity from Sunday to Tuesday for necessary safety upgrades. Your understanding is appreciated in this matter. By Robert Hamel Happy Kwaj residentWhen visiting my mother for Christmas, I noticed she had my late grandfather’s cocktail shaker. It’s a rather humble, dented pewter item that has seen service from World War I until my father’s passing four years ago. I have fond memories of being able to join other males in my grandpa’s makeshift basement bar as he mixed drinks. As a boy it was a great treat to be with the guys including my dad, my uncles and a collection of their fishing buddies. It was a precious opportunity to leave the complicated and tortured world of the women upstairs and to just be a guy. Marvelous tall stories about the big fish that were landed, the ball players of history, war time experiences and politics warmed the atmosphere and my heart. The cocktail shaker has always been a symbol of those times of male bonding. After explaining that to my mother, she insisted that I take it home with me. We put it in a large cardboard box along with several Christmas gifts. When the box arrived on Kwaj, the top of the shaker was missing. After searching the contents several times, I had to conclude that it had escaped from a tear in the side the box had suffered on its journey to Kwaj. It was lost somewhere between the midwest United States and Kwaj and no doubt gone forever. It wasn’t devastating to lose it, but I suppose a little piece of my heart felt a little bit of sorrow at losing a link to those fine times with the guys.I asked Karla Long, post mistress, if anything could be done, figuring that it was a lost cause. She had me fill out a report and a description of the lost item. I don’t know where she sent it, but it seemed like a long shot. It turns out that the mail depot in Honolulu has a large bin full of items that have fallen out of transiting packages. A mail worker sifted through an enormous quantity of lost items and found my missing memory. He e-mailed Long who sent along an e-mail with subject line ‘Great News!’ The lid was sent on the next plane. Thanks to Long and that brave man who dove into the pit of lost causes. Now I’m the third generation Hamel to mix cocktails in that old reliable shaker. I’m sure my grandfather, who remembered the horse and buggy days, never expected that his old reliable friend would still be serving the guys in the twenty rst century, nor in this part of the world. Greetings across the decades and the miles grandpa; I wish you were here. I’d mix you and dad a dry Manhattan, with olives, as I recall. Lost, but not forever Family memorabilia found in lost bin
