Wednesday, March 22, 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 ofT h e K w a j a l e i n H o u r g l a s s The Kwajalein Hourglass 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.

The photograph on Page 4 was taken by Thom Rogers, not Chris Thompson. By Spc. Ian Boudreau Fort Knox, Ky. Turret Staff Writer Do you know what ‘CG’ stands for? Sure—it’s commanding general. Except when it means center of gravity, or communications gateway, or consolidated guidance. How about PMCS? Easy—Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services. Just not when it means ‘Project Managers Control System.’ Another example: A sergeant rst class sitting on a Soldier of the month board a couple years ago was going to ask me questions about Army programs. “What does ASAP mean?” she queried. “Sergeant, ASAP means ‘as soon as possible,” I said without hesitation. Behind me, I knew my supervisor was hiding his face in his hands. In terms of Army programs, ASAP means “Army Substance Abuse Program.” As an Army journalist, a lot of my time is devoted not just to writing, but also translating what I like to call ‘Armyese’ into plain english. It’s not always an easy task. Acronyms are such an integral element of Armyese that many of us have started to use them as if they were normal verbs and nouns. Someone might say “I’m going to take the GOV over to UAMBL to see the TACOPS drill,” and no one would bat an eye. Of course, acronyms have been around for much longer than the Army—some good early examples can Army acronyms can be tough to translatebe found in Italy, where the Romans chiseled SPQR into many of their monuments (Senatus Populusque Romanus). But the Army sure does have a certain fondness for them. It’s not just acronyms that require translation. Dates written ‘16MAR2006’ would make most civilians’ eyes cross, since most Americans are used to ‘March 16, 2006.’ Ranks must be retyped—LTC becomes Lt. Col. in the Associated Press Stylebook and SFC becomes Sgt. 1st Class. Then there’s the lexicon—the actual vocabulary of the Army language. Some folks in the Army are fond of saying ‘at a high rate of speed.’ That’s a lot of words just to say ‘quickly.’ One that’s always gotten under my skin is ‘to include.’ Why the sudden use of the in nitive tense here? Can’t we just say ‘including?’ There’s ‘police up’ and ‘square away,’ which just mean ‘to neaten.’ Things that are good are ‘outstanding’or ‘hooah.’ ‘Ensure’ is another popular Army word. It’s used correctly most of the time, but it sounds an awful lot like ‘insure,’ which has a totally different meaning. Why not eliminate any possible confusion and just say, “make sure?” ‘Attrition’ means ‘a reduction in numbers usually as a result of resignation, retirement, or death.’ Basically, attrition rate is how quickly numbers are declining. It functions as a noun. That is, until it gets ‘verbed’—I recently heard an of cer use the word ‘attrit,’ as in, “We’re going to attrit the enemy down to a combat-ineffective level.” The translation to regular english, of course, is ‘reduce,’ as in, ‘reduce the enemy to a combat-ineffective level.’ It’s easy to get lost reading some of the upper-level planning-speak. Here’s a sentence from the FCS (Future Combat System) Web site:“The adjusted program schedule will use an iterative development, integration and veri cation process to demonstrate readiness to move into Low-rate Initial Production and provide FCS SO capabilities to the Current Force.”Surely, that’s a statement that’s full of meaning. But the average reader (and writer, in my own case) needs some help to fully understand exactly what that sentence is actually saying. All the armed services have their own languages and vocabularies and have since their institutions. It’s a safe bet that they’ll continue to do so inde nitely. As long as they do, those souls whose job it is to tell the Army story will continue to have to translate phrases such as “we took the QRT out on an FTX at 0100 to ensure everyone was good to go on their NVGs” into plain english: “We took the quick response team out on a eld training exercise at 1 a.m. to make sure everyone was quali ed to use their night-vision goggles.”


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 22, 2006 3 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterYep, it is that time of year again, tax time. An instructor for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, Bill Thomas of Hawaii, was on island last week teaching a course to four volunteers. The volunteers will offer free tax help to island residents. After taking the course from Thomas and passing a written test, the volunteers were certified through the IRS. Some changes will be made from last year. Thomas said all taxes will be done on computer however, as of now they will not be e-filed. “They will be printed out and you have to mail them in,” he said. When asked if he would suggest residents go to a volunteer tax preparer he said, “I’ve been doing volunteer taxes for 19 years. If you don’t understand all the rules you can get yourself in a lot of trouble.” Thomas recommends anyone with any major type of taxes to go to a professional tax preparer. The tax filing deadline for U.S. citizens living abroad is June 17, payments must be received by April 17 to avoid penalties. According to items needed for tax preparation include: • Photo identification • Social Security cards for you, your spouse and dependents • Birth dates for primary, secondary and dependents on the tax return • Current year’s tax package if you received one • Wage and earning statement(s) Form W-2, W2G, 1099-R, from all employers • Interest and dividend statements from banks (Forms 1099) • A copy of last year’s Federal and State returns if available • Bank routing numbers and account numbers for direct deposit • Other relevant information about income and expenses • Total paid for day care • Day care providers identifying number • To file taxes electronically on a married filing joint tax return, both spouses must be present to sign the required forms. • The address for those living abroad or usng the 2555/2555 EZ has changed. The new address is on the back of the 1040 instructions. Contact one of the volunteers for an appointment. They are: Shawn Elander 54788, home, 53243, 0616, pager Annette Barnhill 51508, work, 51393, home Alison Bush 52425, work, 53778, home Jenifer Kelso 52312, homeTax preparation volunteers trained, ready to le Hourglass reportsThe March Kwajalein School Advisory Council public meeting was short and sweet according to Dan Frazier, schools superintendent. He said the meeting lasted approximately 30 minutes. In that time, three items were voted on and approved. They were the School Policy 4000.02 Age Limits; Policy 4000.09 Searches and the foreign language/music curriculum. The Age Limits policy was approved to read children must be 5 years old on or before September 1 to be eligible for enrollment in kindergarten. Proof of date of birth must be presented at the time of initial registration for kindergarten. The Searches Policy was changed to read reasonable suspicion instead of probable cause.In other news• Aimee Pang will be the new director of the Child Development Services effective on May 6. • Sara Wayne resigned her position as a CDC teacher, effective June 1. • There is no infant care for children under 2.

Wednesday, March 22, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 By Amanda Curtis and Inge Leblanc Kwajalein Range Services hospitalMarch is National Nutrition Month, a campaign designed to educate and promote the importance of making informed food choices as well as developing sound eating and physical activity habits. (American Dietetic Association ) Americans consume too many calories and too much saturated fat, trans fats, cholesterol, added sugars and salt, but not enough nutrient-dense foods. This, along with a lack of physical activity, results in an ‘energy imbalance,’ more calories is consumed than expended and this leads to weight gain. In the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005, the Department of Health and Human Services identified some nutrients many adults are lacking: calcium, potassium, fiber, magnesium and Vitamins A, C, and E. Children and adolescents are at risk for not enough calcium, potassium, fiber, magnesium and vitamin E. Nutrient-dense foods are those foods providing substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) and relatively few calories. Examples of nutrient-dense foods include: dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains and low-fat milk and milk products. For a 2,000-calorie intake diet recommendations encourage people to consume two cups of fruit and 2 cups of vegetables per day, at least 3 ounce-equivalents of whole-grain products per day and 3 cups per day of fat-free or low-fat milk or equivalent milk products. In January 2005 the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services created a ‘new’ food pyramid called MyPyramid (can be accessed online at http:// ) The new food guide emphasizes the need for a more individualized approach to improving diet and lifestyle which includes age, gender, activity level and the new 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The new food guidelines are more flexible and take into account individual and cultural food preferences, vegetarianism, food allergies, cost, and availability. For some helpful on-line tools, and to learn more about the new guidelines and what you should be eating check out the following Web sites: Online calorie calculator for height, weight, age and activity level can be found at: http: // calcalcs.html Dietary Reference Intakes can be found at: http: // Master/21/372/0.pdf Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 http: // dietaryguidelines/dga2005/ document/By Lisa Barbella High School representativeMark your calendars; this year’s high school prom festivities are quickly approaching.
