See SECRET, Page 16When my wife and I travelled to England in March, one of the places we visited was the town of Coventry. We saw the wonderful Coventry Cathedral. Next to the new cathedral is what remains of the old cathedral built in medieval times. As we went inside and saw the beauty of the place, I remembered a story I had heard about the city and the old cathedral that took place during World War II. On the night of Nov. 14, 1940, more than 500 German bombers conducted a raid on Coventry that lasted more than 10 hours. It began a little after 7 p.m. and did not end until after 6 a.m. the next morning. More than 1,000 civilians were killed with many more injured. Almost 4,300 homes and most of the factories in the town were destroyed. Several of the townspeople heroically tried to save the 14th century cathedral from res, but the bombing was so intense, they had to seek shelter and the cathedral was all but totally devastated. Gas lines were broken, res were everywhere and the water mains were smashed so the res could not be brought under control. A mass burial took place a few days later. When more bodies were pulled from the rubble in the following weeks, another burial was conducted. The horror that Coventry suffered that night might have been just another terrible page in the history of World War II. But a story emerged after the war that many give credence to. In the months leading up to the raid on Coventry, British intelligence had been trying to break the German code called ‘Ultra.’ The Battle of Britain was raging and the outnumbered Royal Air Force was in a desperate ght trying to defend their cities, air elds and factories from attack by the German Luftwaffe. The fear of a German invasion of England was also very real. Breaking the German code was vital to the survival of Britain. Then, through luck and a German mistake, a message was decoded and handed to Winston Churchill as he sat Have you noticed the memorial wall? It is just amazing how this project is coming together! I’ve been on Kwaj a long, long time and I am never surprised at the generosity of our community, but I am in a state of wonderment by the outpouring of support for both memorial projects; from our leadership down to our shops. Our private organizations have rallied to the cause. Kwajalein International Sport shing Club generously donated sh, with some members donating their entire catch for the sh fry that supported the purchase of the memorial wall plaque. Trudy Butler and Roy Howard took all the sh donated from the tournament and delivered 95 pounds of cleaned sh for the meal. The American Legion lent its facility and Kwaj gourmet chef Kenneth Hulme made delicious side dishes. Darlene Duarte, Pam Tinker-Johnson, and Paula Leier worked the kitchen, while Noble Kaluhiokalani and crew ran the deep fry cookers and Stacy Kaluhiokalani coordinated the clean-up. Jim Vencill and Tammy Cotton did ticket sales and took donations. Graphic artist Melissa Dethlefsen was instrumental in the design layout and Doug Hepler cut out the stencil for the owers. Francis Soberano designed leaves and provided technical advice and Ed Zehr mixed paint and cleaned up our mess. Tom Shahan has been serving breakfast to all the painters and Jim Schilling has helped with the food. We’ve had as many as 50 people painting on the wall. Our youngest artists were Morgan Dethlefsen, 2 and Olivia Fleming, 4. Thanks to all of you who donated your time, talent and money with which the granite was purchased and the stone artist was paid. In addition, many thanks to the Kwajalein Art Guild, American Legion Auxiliary, Kwajalein nurses, the Community Bank, San Juan Construction, Inc., 3D Research and Kwajalein Range Services for their support. — Bev Vencill

Hourglass reportsThe latest issue of the Kwajalein phone book will be distributed the third week of July. “It takes several weeks to get the books distributed to all of ces and to the post of ce for residential distribution,” Corinne Brown, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site director of information management said. “Kwajalein residents will start seeing the phone book the week of July 17.” Even though this is the 2006 phone book it won’t be in customers’ hands until nearly halfway through the year. Brown explained why, “As everyone knows, our telephone book contains a wealth of information over and above telephone numbers. The book was originally delayed because we were waiting for the completion of the new evacuation plan and water safety regulation,” she said. “We wanted the telephone book to contain the most current information. Since the book was already delayed, the command decided to delay distribution just a bit more until just after the USAKA change of command. The book distributed in July will contain information on and from the new USAKA commander.” Contact Ron Gamble at 51127 if you nd a mistake. He maintains telephone book information and can make appropriate changes.” The phone book has undergone several reviews, but it is possible there may be mistakes,” Brown advised.Hourglass reportsLea Brogan, Grace Sherwood librarian, announced that Monday through April 30 is ‘TV Turnoff Week.’ “We have activity packs for children as an alternative to watching TV,” she said. “When completed packets are returned, children will receive a READSTRONG band for their commitment to turning off the TV.” “Given our national television habit, it is no surprise that we are raising the most sedentary and most over-Some information changes too often to be current in an annual book.

Saturday, April 22, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 C e l e b r a t i o n a c t i v i t i e s p l a n n e d f o r M o n d a y a t E m o n B e a c h Celebration, activities planned for Monday at Emon Beach E a r t h D a y By Nell M. Drumheller EditorMonday residents of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll will celebrate Earth Day. “We are very fortunate to have such a clean and beautiful environment in USAKA. Oceanic islands experience long periods of evolution in isolation from many forces routinely faced on continents. This isolation results in a natural ecosystem that is very vulnerable to human impacts, especially on such a small land space,” Terri Hibberts an environmental project lead at Kwajalein Range Services Environmental, Safety and Health of ce said. “At USAKA, we rely upon rainwater and groundwater as the source of our drinking water. The groundwater is located just a few feet below the ground surface and the sediment is very porous. Properly managing our hazardous materials, waste and wastewater is extremely important in protecting our drinking water supply,” she said when identifying the most likely pollution problem within USAKA. Hibberts said community members utilizing USAKA’s recycling program can do their part in keeping Kwajalein and Roi-Namur clean. She recommended that community members review the residential recycling guide in the telephone directory. Other Earth-friendly measures, according to Hibberts include “Conserve water and energy usages. Pick up wayward trash. People can also substitute less toxic materials for items used around the house such as cleaning supplies.” At a company level ES&H offers training for KRS and USAKA employees. “We have activities such as Earth Day celebrations to educate the general

Though this area of the world is less polluted than many others, Hibberts recommends that community members don’t take it for granted. “Residents need to keep in mind that we have a very limited amount of land ll space to bury solid waste and that transporting recyclables back to Hawaii or CONUS for processing is very expensive. Whenever possible, items should be reused, then recycled instead of disposed as solid waste,” she said. Earth Day celebrates and recognizes the importance of both ora and fauna. Hibberts said that ES&H educates newcomers to the island about endangered and protected species as well as pollution prevention at the New Hire and Island Orientation brie ngs. She added that ES&H provides a weekly E-Talk that is published in the KRS Newsline and on the American Forces Network Roller. More information on environmental issues is available by calling 51134. Monday’s Earth Day events include contests, education and prizes. Island cleanup starts at 8 a.m., participants should meet at Emon Beach main pavilion. Festivities begin at 10 a.m. with lunch at noon. The activities are scheduled to end by 2 p.m. with prizes awarded at 1:30 p.m. “Kwajalein Scuba Club divers will support Earth Day by removing trash from the lagoon in two groups on Monday. Divers will assemble at 8:45 a.m. and enter the water at 9 a.m. They will enter the water at Echo Pier and the ski boat steps and will clean up debris between the two areas,” Bill Williamson, KSC president said. He added that there are no sign ups required. “Divers should haul their own tanks if possible. I will award three scuba points for this event.” For more information on the dive portion of the cleanup call Williamson at 53822 or Pat Zurich at 53921.


Saturday, April 22, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 increase customer satisfaction. (Photo by Larry Allen)Shop ‘til you drop By Nell M. Drumheller EditorMacy’s and Macy’s West really want to know what you think. So much so that both retail outlets are having a monthly drawing of comment cards and giving a $25 gift certi cate to the person whose card is pulled. “Susie [Sudderth, Macy’s West manager] came up with a great customer appreciation program,” Jill Schoeneck, Macy’s manager said. “It is a monthly drawing for a $25 gift certi cate. All we ask is that the community come in to either Macy’s or Macy’s West and ll out a comment card. Let us know how we are doing, what you would like to see and make suggestions or speci c requests,” Schoeneck said. She stressed the importance of legible writing on the form to ensure names and phone numbers can be read. “We are and will do everything we can to ll our customers requests,” she added. Communication is the key. If customers don’t tell the managers what they want, it is unlikely the managers will know to order it. Sudderth added, “First let me say, on a personal level, being new to the island, and living my whole life prior on the mainland in a major metropolitan city, I understand as well as anyone how frustrating it can be not to have what you want available to you… now. “From a business perspective, please understand that it is equally frustrating for us not to be able to get you what you want,” Sudderth said. “I just recently resigned from the second largest retail merchandising company in the world. When I wanted to see something, virtually anything, on the shelf, it was electronically ordered that moment and was in the store and to the shelf within seven days. So imagine my surprise when I walked into Macy’s West for the rst time and made a list of the things that I wanted to see now, only to find out that we have been trying to get some of them for nearly a year.” She said she realized there may be a lot of items customers may like to see and could be available on Kwajalein, “I just don’t know you want it. That being said, I instituted the customer appreciation program out of sheer necessity. While I want to order you the ‘latest and greatest’ of everything that I can get my hands on, that may not necessarily be what you need or even want. So, this is a great way for me to take a ‘short-cut’ with my learning curve,” Sudderth said. Schoeneck reminded the community of the uniqueness of living on Kwajalein. “We have several vendors set up to order from and we continue to look for new ones that can provide us with merchandise our customers will like and are reasonably priced. It can be very dif cult and time consuming to nd these vendors that will set up an account with us knowing that we will not be buying as large of quantities as some of their stateside customers.” Prior to this customer appreciation promotion Macy’s last written request was November 2004. Schoeneck said that since last fall there has been a new process, identi ed through Six Sigma, for selecting merchandise to be ordered as well as how much is ordered at any time. She said, “One person no longer can make buying decisions on their own. The store manager and inventory specialist select and agree on the products, quantities and research the price to see if we are competitive with stateside pricing, and submit to the retail merchandise manager for approval. Also, we are attempting to buy no more than a 4-month supply at any time so you will see more orders during the year but they will be smaller orders.”She continued, “I personally can say that every request I have gotten from the community I have looked into and that customer has had a response in a day or two. Many requests we are able to ll, it just may take some time based on if we have a vendor set up that carries the item or if we have to look for a new vendor.” “I know many of you have had some bad experiences in the past, we all have, no matter where we shop,” Sudderth said. “If you choose not to participate in the customer feedback program because of your past experience, that is your choice and we respect that. But, instituting this program is an attempt to make our stores the best they have ever been and we are just asking for your help in the process.”Retail stores striving to improve service,


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 22, 2006 7Travel diaryKwajalein resident vacations, dives in Philippines By Pat Zurich Kwajalein resident ItÂ’s about a 2.5 hour ride from the airport to the resort where I had reservations in Anilao, Republic of the Philippines. Part of the trip is made on an expressway-type toll road. My driver, provided by the resort, offered to stop if I wanted anything. I made all of my arrangements with the resort via email and using a bank wire transfer had prepaid for my lodging, meals and diving. I reserved a single accommodation in a deluxe room that had ensuite bathroom, hot water in the shower, a TV, air conditioning, screened windows, fan and a small balcony overlooking the water. I only used the AC a couple of times. The water in the room is not for drinking. There is a water cooler in the dining area and I bought two bottles of water and kept re lling them from this cooler, one for my room and one I took with me on dives. Electric is 240 and requires a twin at plug adapter. I always brought my camera back to my room and charged all my batteries there. My package included three meals per day. Maybe not real fancy, but my room was clean and it worked well for me. I had no mosquito problems and sat out on my balcony at night to read. During my stay I had four days with sunshine all dive-day long, a couple of overcast days and the rest were a combination thereof. On some days the wind picked up at different times. I experienced no measurable rain worth mentioning. The rst dive of each day was scheduled for 8 a.m. IÂ’d make two dives and then return to the resort for lunch. The afternoon dive was around 2 p.m. and night dives were offered. Many dive sites were around 15-25 minutes or so from the resort and some longer. But a couple of very good muck dives were ve minutes or less from the resort. The water temperature was a consistent 78 degrees F. and IÂ’m told that it gets warmer as the year goes on. Having lived in the Marshall Islands for more than 8 years, anything less than 80 degrees F. is cold water to me. Many people come from Manila for the weekend, and this happened during my stay. I saw a lot of dive resorts as I traveled around the Anilao waters, so I de nitely can see how the number of divers can increase. I had nine dive days, made 29 dives and dove 24 different dive sites. Now hereÂ’s the really good part. For most of my time, mainly during the week, I was the only diver. Out of my 29 dives I only had other divers with me for 6 dives, and even for these 6 dives, I had my own dive guide. For the rest of my dives it was the boatman, at least one guide and I. The dive brie ngs were verbal and were as detailed as I asked questions. They like to start the safety stop no later than 45-50 minutes into the dive (or 70 bar), but my muck dives lasted 65-75 minutes. I had three dives where I broke 90 feet, with my deepest dive being 93 feet. My shallowest max depths were 25, 36 and 51 feet, and most of my other max depths ranged from 60-75 feet. On some dives the visibility was poor, 20-30 feet or so, but on others it was much better. IÂ’m told the visibility improves as the year goes on. Fills were consistently 3000 psi and the air tasted good. There were good dip tanks, and at the end of each day I rinsed and hung my gear. In the morning they had my gear ready to go. Anilao is known for its small stuff and thatÂ’s why I went. ItÂ’s not a place to go if you need a pelagic x. For muck type diving I liked sites such as Basura, The Steps, the Resort Rocks and Balanoy. I recommend at least one day and night dive at Basura. The Resort Rocks should be done as a night dive. Some of what I saw at these sites included: seahorses, frog sh, amboyant cuddle sh, various nudibranchs, banded pipe sh, ghost pipe sh, ying gurnards, Spanish Dancers and more. I was also very pleasantly pleased by the color and beauty at such dive sites as the Coral Garden, Bahura, Sepog Wall, Beatrice, and the Layag Layag/Saddle area, and highly recommend these dives. Some of these sites were thick with colorful sh. Other sites I enjoyed were: Mainit Point, Twin Rocks, Bubbles, ArthurÂ’s Rock, Koala, KirbyÂ’s Rock and Dive Trek. Anilao has lots of nudibranchs, shrimps, eels (including ribbon), and anemones, including some of the largest anemones that I have seen. I saw three different frog sh, several banded sea snakes, small squid, common cuttle sh, various scorpion sh, giant clams, black lion sh, octopus, blue spotted rays and colorful urchins. Diving some sites can be current dependent and the guides were very good at picking times to dive them so that current would not be a major factor. I thoroughly enjoyed my Anilao diving and always felt comfortable, from the airport to the resort.

What that message said and the decision he made after reading it has been the source of historical controversy. The coded message that was handed to Churchill was HitlerÂ’s order to bomb Coventry. It was 48 hours before the raid was to take place. There was time to shift Royal Air Force ghter squadrons to defend Coventry. There was time to place anti-aircraft batteries around the city. There was time to warn the people and evacuate them.Churchill did none of those things. He reasoned that if the Germans met ghters and anti-aircraft re waiting there, it might tip them off that their code had been broken. His agonized decision was that sacri cing Coventry and some of its citizens would have to be done in order to keep the secret. U-boats were the biggest threat Britain faced at that time as they were strangling British shipping and England was almost starving. Churchill knew that reading U-boat messages and knowing their locations was the most important information he could possibly have. The Germans couldnÂ’t know their code was being read.After the raid, Churchill went to Coventry. Photos show him grim faced with tears in his eyes as he walked through the destruction. There are books that say the story is true and there are books that say it didnÂ’t happen that way at all. The only men who knew the truth, Churchill and two or three men in his inner circle, never spoke of it. They took the truth to their graves. When some people hear the story, they react with shock and outrage. How could a man do that to his own people? No secret is that valuable. But sometimes secrets are that valuable. If keeping a secret sacri ces a few to save many, is it right to do it? Churchill is considered one of the great men of history, but I wonder how he would fare in todayÂ’s world. Would he be sued by the families of those killed in the raid? Would the British government have to pay for homes and factories destroyed? Would Churchill be charged with criminal negligence or some other sort of crime? I have a feeling that if the story is true and I for one believe it is, Churchill bore more than any of those things could have ever done to him. He would have lived with his decision for the rest of his life. When he closed his eyes at night or when he opened them in the morning, did he see that message again and again and wonder if he had done the right thing? It makes you wonder what you would have done in the same situation. Leaders must keep secrets for better or worse, but keeping some secrets must truly try menÂ’s souls.
