They had to buy seed and gasoline for the communal tractor. The year my family and I went to visit, our friends, the DeLeons, had a good crop. They made $5,600 on their corn that fall. It was what a family of twelve had to live on for the year. DeLeon felt himself fortunate. He wouldn’t have to ‘go north’ and look for work that year. The afternoon after we arrived, all the men sat around a re in the front yard of his ‘old’ house. They had killed a pig the day before and we were boiling the fat for lard and chitterlings. His youngest daughter was sitting on the porch with her mother and sister, visiting her ‘novio.’ I asked him, “Why the two houses, side by side?” The ‘old’ was made of traditional ‘lumbre,’ literally a wood fence daubed with adobe mud and covered by a thatch roof. The new house was ‘American style,’ concrete block, iron-framed windows with what would soon be a poured concrete roof replete with gables. Daughter and son-in-lawto-be were rocking on the porch. DeLeon took me up on the roof of his house-in-progress and showed me the entire town. There were many ‘American-style houses’ like his with a thatched roof alongside. He said, “What Some years ago, while living in Texas, I had the good fortune to be able to travel in northern Mexico. We had been invited to visit the ‘ejido’ or communal town in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas where some of our friends in the Texas town of Weslaco were from. The ejidos were founded in the wake of the Mexican Revolution. Land was con scated and handed over to the ‘campesinos’ who were allowed to form little settlements. The land was owned in common. Each family was doled out a share of land, which they could work, but not sell. We had great, long talks at the store and around the re that week. The men enjoyed being able to exchange views with a ‘bolillo’ (literally, ‘white bread’) who could speak such good Spanish. The North American Free Trade Agreement was about to arrive and they were scared. No one wanted it. They felt like their livelihood from their corn crops would disappear. The grain prices in Mexico were protected by a high tariff that kept American grain out and by price supports that guaranteed the farmer in Mexico something for his work. They showed me their elds. It By Gregg Geeslin Kwajalein residentOn behalf of the Christian Women’s Fellowship, I would like to say thank you to all who supported the Carlson Christmas Drop. We received many donations from the community and for that we are very grateful. We would especially like to thank the Host Nations Of ce for their support, the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club, the junior high youth group and Michael Kautz for their generous donations, the folks on Carlson for their hospitality and delicious meal, and our boat captains (Alan, Bob, Brian, John and Rick). Please accept our heartfelt thanks to all who supported CWF in this endeavor. — Jane DeJoie, Missions chair, Christian Women’s Fellowshipyou see here is thirty years or more of men ‘going north’ to work. They saved the money they brought back and bought a few blocks here and there. They would put in a foundation and then, perhaps, the next year, a wall.” He gave a big sigh. “None of us ever want to go north. Everyone would rather stay here, in Mexico, and work, but there are no jobs. We love it here.” After another sigh, we both climbed down a wooden ladder to the ground. We had a wonderful week there and before we left, the people of that town, ’Ejido Lzaro Crdinas,’ bestowed on us their highest honor. They offered us a share in their ejido, a place where we could put our own thatched roof, and the chance to move to Mexico. Six years later, under NAFTA, the tariffs that Mexico used to protect their grain markets were removed. The last time I heard of the DeLeon’s, they had legally moved to Houston.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, April 19, 2006 3 Surf’s upPublic Internet hardware repaired, will provide safer, secure service, password accounts must be obtained before usingBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorKwajalein Range Services Information Technology department is ready to put the new public Internet service into affect. “The new system is already up and running. You can login using the account and password that was sent to you previously. We are now processing accounts again, so those users who haven’t received their accounts in the mail they will be sent out shortly,” said David Galloway, Public Networks administrator. “We’ve been testing the new dial-in service successfully for over a month,” he said. The public Internet was revamped in October, but quickly pulled after some glitches were identi ed. Galloway explained what happened, “The project was never cancelled; it was just delayed. The system suffered a major hardware failure just days before the old number was due to be disabled. This problem was resolved, but the project continued to be delayed. On the current track of using a Microsoft based product, it would have cost approximately $260,000 so Badge for veri cation,” Galloway said. All K-Badge holders 18 or older with a current contract or position with U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll or an approved tenant company or authorized personnel at USAKA/RTS on temporary duty status are authorized a public Internet account. K-Badge holders who are under 18 can obtain an access account with approval of a parent/guardian, who must also sign for the account. If a customer signed up for an account last fall, they can use their previous username and password now. The changeover to the new system is a result of warnings received by USAKA from the stateside based Internet Service Provider. “Increased security requirements must be implemented. In order to ensure that IT can identify individual machines that are broadcasting viruses and/or malicious traf c, unique user ID’s and passwords are now going to be required,” Galloway said. “While this is not new, users are reminded that they are responsible for maintaining virus protection on their home PCs. There are several different options available to home-users to protect themselves from viruses. These range from subscription to even completely free, homeuser based virus protection,” he said. The IT public Internet support will provide account based services such as account creation, account unlocks, etc. The end user is responsible for all other support and should contact a USAKA-approved vendor. Customers needing help at home should not call the IT help desk. “They should call the IT Public Internet Support at 5-HELP [54357] or e-mail PUBNET@SMD CK.SMDC.ARMY.MIL ,” Galloway said. we had to move to a different software platform, which caused the majority of the delay.” The new system, which is free, will improve home Internet service on Kwajalein by providing a better, safer sur ng experience according to Galloway. “We’ve put in a new, larger modem bank so we’re moving from 72 to 120 connections. Also, we will be increasing the login time from two to four hours. IT will be able to disable the account for any user in the community who may be broadcasting viruses and/or malicious traf c, therefore providing a safer “sur ng” experience for the Kwajalein and Roi community. We are also looking into the option of having a Community Intranet page,” he said. There’s been an improvement over the system initiated in October. The two primary changes were the software platform used and the network layout. “We set up and created a new segment on the rewall for the public internet, so people will have a different proxy IP address for their browser,” Galloway said.Establishing an account with the new system is relatively easy. Users must ll out a user agreement form which can be found at the IT Help Desk, the Grace Sherwood Library or the IT – Forms section of the business Intranet. Completed forms must be taken to IT for processing. Once the account has been processed, the account information will be sent through the military postal service to the customer’s mailbox. “Accounts are case speci c and need to be entered lower case. A member of IT will be outside of Macy’s from 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday for those who still have not applied for accounts. Users will need to bring their K-


Wednesday, April 19, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Livy Hoskins, a junior at Kwajalein Junior-Senior High School, volunteered to be severely stressed during SaturdayÂ’s Mass Casualty exercise.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, April 19, 2006 Exercise simulates bombings, casualties If it happened here(Photos by Nell Drumheller)5By Nell M. Drumheller EditorBloody bodies were barely visible through the smoke haze, but the moans and cries for help could easily be heard. A mock explosion at the Kwajalein post of ce on Saturday was the midway point for a mass casualty exercise conducted by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. The exercise challenged the readiness of personnel on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. “Actually, this exercise was a combination of two training events that are annual requirements, the MASCAL and Force Protection,” explained Maj. Craig Holton, USAKA operations of cer. The MASCAL was designed to test the medical [hospital, re and rescue] capabilities of the island and the force protection portion exercised the island security elements as well as the community in general. “The Department of the Army requires that we execute one MASCAL annually. Depending on player performance, this is usually adequate for this community,” Holton said. “One of the key players this year was Explosive Ordnance Disposal,” he added. The training scenario centered on EOD. “Their performance was right on the money,” he said. The scenario included an explosion in the post of ce, a secondary explosive device in the downtown area and a suspicious looking package on Roi-Namur. Twenty-three high school students volunteered on Kwajalein to be victims of the rst explosion. “This exercise was much more complex than last year’s scenario. Saturday’s event tied in re/rescue, hospital, KPD, EOD, aviation, automotive and the post of ce, just to name a few. Everybody from the high school volunteers who played the dead and injured to the atoll’s senior leadership did an outstanding job and See EXERCISE, Page 6 Fire ghter Dan Farnham assesses ‘victim’ Allison Peacock’s, a senior at Kwajalein Junior-Senior High School, condition.


Wednesday, April 19, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6EXERCISE, from Page 5 with the lessons learned from this exercise, we can become better prepared to ‘just in case’ something like this should ever happen,” Holton said. “Of course, this exercise would have never even gotten off the ground if not for the student and numerous other volunteers.” A MASCAL exercise is the training ground not only for speci c agencies, but also for the community. “A MASCAL gives the community, any community, a ‘sanity check’ for lack of a better term, on just how prepared they are to handle any emergency that generates a large amount of causalities. I said ‘any community’ because if you watch the news, you’ll note that communities back in the states are starting to conduct MASCALs for the same reasons we do them here. You really don’t want to wait until something bad happens to nd out where your weaknesses lie. A thorough knowledge of our limitations allows us to plan alternative solutions,” Holton continued. “This was my second MASCAL here and this one was a marked improvement over last year’s. Consistency in operations is the key to effective response during a MASCAL. After the 05 MASCAL, we put some simple procedures in place across the board such as common communications procedures among all players and correct staf ng of the emergency operations center. These and other changes, played for the rst time this year, greatly improved our effectiveness across the board in dealing with MASCAL events,” he said. “This year we rolled Roi into the exercise. What was planned to be a training response to a ‘suspicious package’ turned out to be a ‘real world’ response much like what the Kwaj Community experienced Friday noon. During a security sweep in response to the training ‘suspicious package,’ they found an actual ‘suspicious package.’ At that point, the training on Kwaj ceased and EOD responded to Roi’s ‘real world’ event. Hat’s off to the Roi EOC, security and re units, AirScan an d o f course EOD f or a j o b we ll done. The ‘real world’ package turned out to be a false alarm, but the effort is what counts.” He continued, “The community can contribute by just being prepared to respond when asked. Here’s an example of what I mean... On Friday we elevated the Force Protection Condition to Bravo at 10:30 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., a member of the community phoned in a suspicious package report which prompted the excitement down town. This community member was doing his part; he was asked to be more vigilant about his surroundings and he did what he was asked.” Kwajalein Police Sgt. Mike Ellison and bomb dog, Nora, check the Post Of ce for explosives during the exercise. Fire ghters and medical teams quickly triaged ‘victims’ Saturday during the mass casualty exercise.
