Through your generous gifts of money and time, we were able to present four Ebeye schools with educational supplies and sports equipment Do you like numbers, facts and gures? I did some research courtesy of the Internet and found some you might like to know. Are you ready?There were 10,623 Continental Army Soldiers killed in the American Revolutionary War; The War of 1812 claimed 6,765 Americans; 13,283 Americans died in the Mexican War; 359,528 federal Soldiers died in the Civil War preserving the Union; 2,446 Americans died in the Spanish-American War; World War I saw 116,708 Americans killed; World War II took 407,316 American lives; 33,651 Americans died in the Korean War; 58,438 Americans were killed in Vietnam; 293 Americans died in the Gulf War and more than 2,500 Americans have died in Afghanistan and Iraq so far. George Seitz PTO thanks more than 130 volunteersGeorge Seitz Elementary PTO would like to express our appreciation for this year’s record number of volunteers (130+). It is estimated these parents and community members have spent more than 10,000 man hours helping provide an excellent education for our children. Wow! I’d say that is a huge thumbs up! Wouldn’t you? The chairperson of the “Volunteer Appreciation” committee, Cassie Rubly Shields, organized an appreciation If those are added up, that’s 1,011,571 American military members who have died for freedom. And that’s just the ‘major’ wars America has fought, although I guess any war is major to the ones who are ghting and dying in it.There’s another number that should be noted. That’s the 30 minutes it will take to hold the Memorial Day ceremony starting at 9 a.m., Monday, at the ag poles. There are many things to do on a day off. Diving, shing, picnics and going to the beach or pool. I hope that quite a few folks can also nd time to attend the ceremony this year, especially since many of our young and not-soyoung men and women are giving their all right now in at Christmastime, send a $2,000 gift (proceeds from our variety show) to Salmen High School in Slidell, La., in support of the Hurricane Katrina cleanup and raise $1,500 for next year’s Christmas project. Thank you for allowing us opportunities where we can learn to give service to others.— AnnElise Peterson, advisor and students, Amber, Lisa, Barry, Ashley, Katie, Cassia, Jessica, Allison, Lauren, Monica, Leah, Michael T., Shelley, Chrisian, April, Maureen, Rachael, Kaylee, Catlin, Jeff B., Emily, John, Emma, Michael K., Jullianne, Mellissa, Rebecca, Renee, CC and Casey banquet, in addition to procuring and preparing beach bags for the volunteers. Each bag was lled with lots of items that were either donated by individuals or purchased by the PTO. Because we think our volunteers are so extraordinary, we’d like to give them their due.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 27, 2006 3Suspicious bags cause alerts Kwajalein police, fire department, Explosive OrdnanceDisposal respond to separate incidents on Tuesday By Nell M. Drumheller EditorTuesday was a busy day for rst responders on Kwajalein. At 7:30 a.m. two unattended bags were spotted in front of Macy’s bachelor quarters and brought to the attention of Kwajalein Police Department’s Lt. Mike Bucher. One was a small one-pouch black canvas bag with strap similar to that of a military-issue ammunition bandoleer, it was sitting next to a white box with postage markings. “K-9 units were called and one of the explosive detection dogs alerted on the black canvas bag on three separate sweeps,” Capt. Jeff Mullin, KPD deputy chief said. Bucher took the next step and called for back-up. All available KPD units arrived within minutes and established a 300-foot cordon. Mullin said Macy’s BQ was evacuated by pulling the re alarm as approved by the Kwajalein Fire Department. Police of cers then made an eyes-on sweep of the building, stores and passersby, ensuring the cordoned-off area was clear. “EOD [Explosive Ordnance Disposal] responded quickly and a plan was established to utilize the EOD robot to drag or carry the potential IED [improvised explosive device] from the front of Macy’s BQ to a clear area oceanside and adjacent to the Ocean View Club where the bag would be shot by the robot’s disruptor cannon,” Mullin said. Upon arrival at the bag, the robot was unable to secure it because the carrying strap was not continuous, nor could it be dragged effectively from its location. “The decision was made to shoot the IED in place, and upon ensuring all personnel were under cover, EOD shot the bag which proved to contain no explosive devices,” Mullin said. The box was opened by manipulating the robot arm, and with lights and camera mounted on the robot, it was determined to contain only a folded grocery bag. The scene was declared safe at 9:30 a.m. The second package, the white box, was traced to an island resident. He was interviewed, “this individual was not cited since his rendition of how the box arrived at Macy’s from the trash at his quarters is plausible,” Mullins said. EOD, KPD and KFD were back in action four hours later when a worker at the post of ce reported a suspicious looking package. It was 24 inches by 12 inches by 12 inches with only a name and no proper address or return address. It was wrapped in duct tape and showing what appeared to be oil stains consistent with FBI/postal alerts matching what may constitute an IED, according to Mullins. Once again KPD established a cordon and evacuated the area out to 300 feet. “Postal employees who were interviewed related that the package originated in San Francisco and had been through Hickam Air Force Base before being handled by postal employees here,” Mullin said. “A visual inspection of the package revealed a name not related to anyone assigned on island, nor did the name belong to anyone transiting the atoll according to records of manifests. And there was no address on the label, only a name.” EOD determined to not shoot the package in the post of ce, and the package was too big to move by robot and too large to scan the contents with the portable X-Ray. EOD Bomb Technician Scott Phillips donned the bomb suit and carried the package to the EOD truck where it was transported to the air eld hotspot and opened remotely. “The contents revealed no explosive devices. All items are retained as evidence to determine how a package bearing no address can travel the distance it did without alarming responsible personnel,” Mullin said. The scene cleared by 3:54 p.m.Approximately 20-25 personnel were involved in the two incidents. Mullin said the likelihood of two such similar events in one day was “very unusual, but then again when it rains, it pours.” He added that KPD, KFD and EOD are trained and prepared to respond to these calls. “We’re improving upon our response times and procedures with every incident,” Mullin said. “Both situations are the results of alert community members who took the proper precautions and alerted police to the existence of suspicious packages. Although both situations proved negative for explosive devices, our community members are the all-important key in combating terrorism: “Vigilance and Teamwork,” Mullin said. "Both situations are the results of alert community members who took the proper precautions and alerted police to the existence of suspicious packages. Although both situations proved negative for explosive devices, our community members are the all important key in combating terrorism." — Capt. Jeff Mullin, Kwajalein Police Department deputy chief

Saturday, May 27, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Live reBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorThey came, they trained and they left. Sixty Marines spent two days ring Stinger missiles at one fth scale radio-controlled aerial targets on Meck. “Live re training is vitally important,” said Maj. Gen. George J. Trautman, III, commanding general for the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, Iwakuni, Japan, on Meck Thursday. This was Trautman’s rst in-person viewing of Stinger live re. The Marines, from the 1st Stinger Battery out of Okinawa, don’t often have the opportunity to train live. Typically they train in simulators. To maintain their quali cations, they must shoot live once every three years, according to Battery Commander Maj. Matt Culbertson. This is the rst time the Marines have traveled to Kwajalein for this training. “It is a rst-time event for RTS [Reagan Test Site], but the Marines do it on a regular basis. Last year it was done on Wake,” Capt. Eric J. Everts, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, ICBM test director Marines conduct Stinger missile target shooting training on Meck job is to shoot down enemy aircraft,” the captain said. Over the course of two days’ training they red 48 surface-to-air Stinger missiles. While most of the Low Altitude Defense gunners, or Stinger gunners, agreed that live training tops simulator training. Cpl. Dennison Muczynski summed it up, “It’s the adrenaline rush.” He said training in an airconditioned simulator is not the same as training in the elements. Training live builds con dence according to Lance Cpl. Michael Mariana, a Marine of three years from Ohio and a Stinger gunner. “You build con dence in your system, your team, battery and leadership.” What does the Marine training mean to the USAKA community? During Lt. Gen. Larry J. Dodgen, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense commanding general’s last visit to Kwajalein, he indicated that joint-service use of the USAKA/RTS facilities was vital. “My mission for Master Sgt. Frank Cota upon his arrival earlier this year as the Senior Range NCO [noncommissioned of cer] was to be creative and nd customers who might be able to use our range,” USAKA/RTS Commander COL Beverly Stipe said. She added that One- fth scale radio-controlled aerial targets are used during live re Stinger missile training.

Saturday, May 27, 2006 matter in her request of Cota, as long as high quality testing or training environment could be assured. Stipe continued, “Well, it didn’t take Master Sgt. Cota long before he was brie ng me on Marines from Okinawa who needed a place to collect cursory data on their inventory of Stingers without the encumbrance of political or population sensitivities. Together, Cota, Everts, Billy Traweek, [Kwajalein Range Services Range Safety] and others sorted through the obstacles to ring from Meck Island, assisted the Marines in establishing a solid ring table, and built the logistics timeline that put the Marines ‘on the beach’ this week,” Stipe said. She added that having Trautman join his Marines for several of the rings was inspirational. “I am extremely pleased with the professionalism that went into the planning, and I am very happy with the level of support RTS and KRS provided to ensure the trip here and the rings went so well. My congratulations for a job very well done,” she said. Two Marines visited USAKA in March on a site survey. “Meck was the best place at RTS that met their mission requirements. Cost, scheduling and other con icts brought them to RTS,” Everts said. The young gunners agreed that anytime there was an opportunity to train it should be used. The training on Meck provided both day and night live res. On Thursday, prior to the second day of live re, Culbertson told his Marines, “Even if we don’t re another missile this has been a success.” On Wednesday the Marines hit 100 percent of the targets. On Thursday there were a couple of misses, but according to Trautman they were technical kills since they narrowly missed the small target and if the target had been a scale aircraft it would have been a hit. Trautman met with most of the Marines one-on-one, while learning about each of their responsibilities during the training. He reiterated the importance of the live re training and the ideal circumstances on Meck. Muczynski said the Marines appreciated the opportunity to come to the Republic of the Marshall Islands, “Just coming over to see this,” he said, indicating the island. He added that part of the pre-deployment preparation was briefing the Marines on where they were going and on the historical importance of the Marshall Islands to the United States and the Marine Corps. He said that many of the Marines in the 1st Stinger Battery were from small towns across America and the opportunity for them to visit Kwajalein.and Meck was once in a lifetime. Low Altitude Defense Gunner Cpl. Kristopher C. Newberry is one of 60 Marines who trained on Meck this week. Marines from the 1st Stinger Battery say simulator training can't compare to live re training.

Saturday, May 27, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Identity information for millions ofveterans compromised by data theftAt riskDept. of Veterans Affairs releaseThe Department of Veterans Affairs has learned that an employee, a data analyst, took home electronic data from the VA, which he was not authorized to do. This behavior was in violation of VA policies. This data contained identifying information including names, social security numbers, and dates of birth for up to 26.5 million veterans and some spouses, as well as some disability ratings. Importantly, the affected data did not include any of VA’s electronic health records nor any nancial information. The employee’s home was burglarized and this data was stolen. The employee has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. Appropriate law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the VA Inspector General’s of ce, have launched full-scale investigations into this matter. Authorities believe it is unlikely the perpetrators targeted the items because of any knowledge of the data contents. It is possible that they remain unaware of the information which they possess or of how to make use of it. However, out of an abundance of caution, the VA is taking all possible steps to protect and inform our veterans. The VA is working with members of Congress, the news media, veterans’ service organizations, and other government agencies to help ensure that veterans and their families are aware of the situation and of the steps they may take to protect themselves from misuse of their personal information. The VA will send out individual noti cation letters to veterans to every extent possible. Additionally, working with other government agencies, the VA has set up a manned call center that veterans may call to get information about this situation and learn more about consumer identity protections. That toll free number is 1-800-FED INFO (1-800-333-4636). The call center will operate from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT, Monday-Saturday as long as it is needed. Here are some questions you may have about this incident, and their answers. I'm a veteran. How can I tell if my information was compromised? At this point there is no evidence that any missing data has been used illegally. However, the VA is asking all veterans to be extra vigilant and to carefully monitor bank statements, credit card statements and any statements relating to recent nancial transactions. If you notice unusual or suspicious activity, you should report it immediately to the nancial institution involved and contact the Federal Trade Commission for further guidance. What is the earliest date suspicious activity might have occurred due to this data breach? The information was stolen from an employee of the VA in May. If the data has been misused or otherwise used to commit fraud or identity theft crimes, it is likely that veterans may notice suspicious activity during May. I haven't noticed any suspicious activity in my nancial statements, but what can I do to protect myself and prevent being victimized by credit card fraud or identity theft? The VA strongly recommends that veterans closely monitor their nancial statements and review the guidelines provided on this webpage or call 1-800FED-INFO (1-800-333-4636). Should I reach out to my nancial institutions or will the VA do this for me? The VA does not believe that it is necessary to contact nancial institutions or cancel credit cards and bank accounts, unless you detect suspicious activity. Where should I report suspicious or unusual activity? The FTC recommends the following four steps if you detect suspicious activity: Step 1 – Contact the fraud department of one of the three major credit bureaus: • Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com ; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241 • Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com ; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, Texas 75013 •TransUnion:1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com ; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790 Step 2 – Close any accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. Step 3 – File a police report with your local police or the police in the community where the identity theft took place. Step 4 – File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by using the FTC’s Identity Theft Hotline by telephone: 1-877-438-4338, online at The VA is working with members of Congress, the news media, veterans' service organizations, and other government agencies to help ensure that veterans and their families are aware of the situation.

The VA is working with the President’s Identity Theft Task Force, the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to investigate this data breach and to develop safeguards against similar incidents. The VA has directed all VA employees complete the “VA Cyber Security Awareness Training Course” and complete the separate “General Employee Privacy Awareness Course” by June 30. In addition, the VA will immediately be conducting an inventory and review of all current positions requiring access to sensitive VA data and require all employees requiring access to sensitive VA data to undergo an updated National Agency Check and Inquiries and/or a Minimum Background Investigation depending on the level of access required by the responsibilities associated with their position. Appropriate law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Inspector General of the Department of Veterans Affairs, have launched full-scale investigations into this matter. Where can I get further, up-to-date information?The VA has a special Web site and a toll-free telephone number for veterans that features up-to-date news and information. Please check this Web page for further updates or call 1-800-FED-INFO (1-800333-4636).www.consumer.gov/idtheft or by mail at Identity Theft Clearinghouse, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 20580. I know the VA maintains my health records electronically; was this information also compromised? No electronic medical records were compromised. The data lost is primarily limited to an individual’s name, date of birth, social security number, in some cases their spouse’s information, as well as some disability ratings. However, this information could still be of potential use to identity thieves and we recommend that all veterans be extra vigilant in monitoring for signs of potential identity theft or misuse of this information.

It looks like IÂ’ll miss it this year because IÂ’ll be working at a part-time job. So please donÂ’t think IÂ’m preaching. In fact, IÂ’m hoping someone takes up the slack for me and attends. WouldnÂ’t it be nice to have a big crowd there to say thank you to all the Americans who have made the ultimate sacri ce for the preservation of freedom around the world?
