The beautifully made huts, that we get to keep as a gift from Iroij Kili Kabua, will be placed on the Elementary campus for students to embrace a piece of traditional Marshallese culture everyday. Participation from the third and sixth grade students from the Ebeye Public School also provided a really great cross-cultural experience for all of the students. A special thanks to Iroij Michael Kabua, Iroi j Kili Kabua, Noda Lojkar, Sgt. Joseph Williams and the Provost Marshal’s of ce, Dock Security, Marcella Sakaio, Deo Keju, the Ebeye Public students and teachers, the buildings and grounds crew, Sandy Finn, Jane Premo, Cris Lindborg, Karen Brady, Domes Intl., Rosita Sawej and Mary Harris for your cooperation and desperately needed assistance. To all of the builders, coconut huskers, spear and net shermen, re and rope makers, and weavers: kommol tata for sharing your amazing talents with our students. This was a truly unique and memorable experience for all of us! — George Seitz Elementary School teachers for Grades 3 and 6, Greg Moore, Kris Wayland, Masina McCollum and Tarah YurovchakI would like the opportunity to bid adieu to those I was unable to see personally, and to thank the many folks who supported me over the last two years. It was with great honor and my privilege to serve this community, and I did so with all of my ability within the given restraints. A special thanks to those young adults and their parents who allowed me the privilege of coaching them; those memories will serve as very lasting ones. Kwajalein is a unique and special community -one that should not be taken for granted. Thanks for allowing my family and me to be a part of it. — Dennis JohnsonAs anyone who’s familiar with The Hourglass knows, every Saturday we publish the names of American servicemembers who have been killed in Iraq. When I read those names and the circumstances of their deaths, I’m usually struck by three things. How very young they were and how, in almost every case, the cause of death was a roadside bomb, and the place it happened was Anbar Province. I don’t nd it surprising that the alleged ‘massacre’ of 24 Iraqi civilians by U.S. Marines took place in the town of Haditha, which is in Anbar Province. Haditha is known as an insurgent stronghold where a lot of those bombs are probably made. And if you take young men and women, teach them to kill, give them some of the most lethal weapons on earth and then put them in a situation where they see their friends and comrades horribly maimed and killed day in and day out by an enemy they can’t ght back against, why are we ‘shocked’ as some of our news reporters and politicians say they are, that something bad may have occurred? Some of our Marines and Soldiers are on their second and third rotation to Iraq. For three years now, our troops have been subjected to an unseen enemy that kills them


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 3, 2006 3U.S. military responds to quake victims(Photo by Lance Cpl. Warren Peace) American Forces Press ServiceThe U.S. military is sending about 100 troops to Indonesia to contribute to international humanitarian relief efforts in the wake of a devastating 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck May 27 near the ancient city of Yogyakarta. The deployment is part of a larger U.S. government response to a request from the government of Indonesia for humanitarian assistance, according to U.S. Paci c Command of cials. The troops will come from the III Marine Expeditionary Force in Okinawa, Japan; U.S. Pacific Air Forces units in Guam; and the h ospita l s h ip U S N S Merc y which is operating in the Philippines as part of a ve-month medical deployment to Southeast Asia and Western Paci c countries, of cials said. The U.S. troops will bring surgical, shock trauma, laboratory, dental, X-ray, and preventive medicine expertise to the earthquake-ravaged area. “Doctors, nurses, medical technicians, and supplies are rapidly deploying to Indonesia to support the humanitarian efforts near Yogyakarta. The goal is to reduce further loss of life and help alleviate human suffering,” said Air Force Brig. Gen. Dana Atkins, U.S. Paci c Command director of operations. “We offer our sincere condolences to the people of Indonesia affected by this tragedy and will do our best to ease their suffering with available medical assets. The U.S. has strong regional ties to Indonesia, and we are a longstanding friend of the Indonesian people.” The deployment of personnel from USNS Mercy will not affect the ship’s ability to continue the mission in the Philippines, of cials said. The U.S. military and all organizations aboard the Mercy remain committed to providing humanitarian and civic assistance as previously planned, of cials said. The earthquake death toll has risen to more than 5,000 people, with about 6,500 seriously injured and 100,000 homeless. Indonesian Soldiers and Okinawa-based Marines and Sailors work together to set up surgical and acute care medical facilities here to help alleviate the suffering by victims of a May 27 earthquake that rocked the island of Java. About 100 service members from III Marine Expeditionary Force began deploying to the area at the Indonesian government’s request only days after the disaster struck.

Saturday, June 3, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Maintenance seminar conducted for 100 employees Hourglass reportsU.S. Ambassador Greta Morris, RMI Minister of Health Alvin Jacklick, and the founder of Canvasback Missions, Jamie Spence, each spoke to a large audience of medical professionals and members of the general public at the May 11th opening of the Diabetes Wellness Center in Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands. The new center is a joint project of the RMI Ministry of Health, Loma Linda University and Canvasback Missions. It is funded substantially by a grant of approximately $800,000 from the U.S. Department of Defense. “The goal of the wellness program is to reduce the high rate of diabetes by implementing lifestyle changes through education and exercise. It will also involve conducting research into the causes of RMI’s very high rate of diabetes, estimated to be around 30 percent,” Morris said. She added, “According to preliminary research, inadequate nutrition and lack of exercise among residents of the Marshall Islands are major contributors in diabetic illness. Type II diabetes is a serious problem in the Marshall Islands and elsewhere, as well. Diabetes is an illness that has taken too many lives and has taken the joy out of the lives of others. This does not have to be. Although individuals cannot always prevent diabetes, through proper care of our bodies—speci cally proper diet and exercise—the vast majority of people can control the disease and continue to live active, productive and happy lives.” The grant titled Diabetes and Wellness Outcomes Research for the Republic of the Marshall Islands is administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and the Telemedicine and Advanced Medical Technology Research Center, according to Maj. Jeff Klein, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations of cer. Canvasback Missions, Inc. proposed the grant in close coordination with RMI Ministry of Health and Loma Linda University. Oversight for use of human subjects is provided by the RMI Internal Review Committee, the Loma Linda Medical University Internal Review Board and the USAMRMC Of ce of Research Protections. The grant is for $1,000,000 of which USAMRMC deducts $177,000 for administrative costs leaving a balance of $823,000.The total cost of the center and its mainland support is more than $1,200,000. The balance of approximately $377,000 must be raised by Canvasback Missions, Inc. “I am very pleased that the U.S. Department of Defense has provided this grant to Canvasback Missions to make this Center possible. This is a wonderful example of how the U.S. Government is working with faith-based organizations to achieve something very good for the people,” Morris said.“I am convinced that this Diabetes Wellness Center will help the people of Majuro do that, by providing them with education on proper diet, exercise and lifestyle and actually providing them with a place where they can practice what they learn. This Diabetes Wellness Center will help contribute to two of the most important goals of the amended compact: promoting better health and improving education in the Marshall Islands. “The center demonstrates that, through better education about health, people can start living healthier, happier and more productive lives. It won’t just help the Marshallese people avoid and control diabetes; a healthier lifestyle will promote better health across the board,” the Ambassador said.The center is located in a wing of the old hospital and includes a classroom, laboratory, of ces, a kitchen/dining area and an aerobic exercise room. Department of Defense grant funds Majuro Diabetes Wellness Center By Leann Clayton KRS Mission OperationsThe Kwajalein Range Services Mission Operations Maintenance Management Department, under the direction of Matt Molina, conducted a maintenance seminar that included 100 selected employees from Logistics, Mission Operations, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Lincoln Labs, Ground Based Radar Prototype, AirScan, and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll May 17 and 18. Joel Levitt, a maintenance professional, spoke at the seminar, which was the rst of its kind held on Kwajalein. His presentation addressed many maintenance issues that impact asset management challenges for one of the most corrosive environments in the world. This seminar was part of an ongoing effort to communicate and implement the best methods available to manage RTS range assets for the entire atoll bringing it further in line with world class maintenance standards.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 3, 2006 7 Michael Taylor wins Rusty Family Competitors range from 6 to 19 RUSTY FAMILY TRIATHLON RESULTSBy Bob Sholar Race Director 2006 Rusty Family Mini-Triathlon There is such a diversity of ages among the 26 individuals in this year’s Rusty Family Mini-Triathlon Monday that it is hard to evaluate the overall nish placements without noting the ages. They ranged from 6-year old Grace Everts to 19year old college Freshman Marcy Peterson, with a few adults also participating. A high school junior, Michael Taylor, was rst overall in 53:12, winning by more than nine minutes. Peterson was rst for the ladies in a personal best of 1:10: 10. A carefully constructed team of three was able to hold off a nishing run charge by individual Michael Taylor and captured the team section in 52:40. They were swimmer Ian Taylor, biker Julianne Kirchner and runner John Landgraff. The Taylor brothers, Michael and Ian, swam 5:01 and 5:02 respectively, almost cracking the 5-minute barrier on this course, which has never been done. Some highlights: 1) Nineteen percent of the eld of individuals was last named Everts! The whole family each did the whole event individually: Eric, Candace, Logan, Kate and Grace. 2) The largest whole-family team was “Thad’s Thundering Herd” made up of Thad and Sue Thomas and their ve children: Loren, Rhodri, Asa, Meredith and Sean. 3) All three DeCoster boys participated as individuals: Justin, Ryan and Tyler. 4) An impressive 4th place overall nish by 12-year old Graham Kirchner in 1:06:37. 5) There were four whole family participations: Everts, Thomas, Vannoy and Moseley. 6) Tyler Stepchew and his little sister Claire formed a team named “What Was That?” The name became appropriate when we saw Place Name Swim Bike Run Total Individuals 1 Taylor, Michael (17) 0:05:01 0:31:15 0:16:56 0:53:12 2 Rowe, Alan (15) 0:05:23 0:35:25 0:21:36 1:02:24 3 DeCoster, Justin (16) 0:05:46 0:36:41 0:22:30 1:04:57 4 Kirchner, Graham (12) 0:06:48 0:38:11 0:21:38 1:06:37 5 Peterson, Marcy (19) 0:08:18 0:40:37 0:21:15 1:10:10 6 Brady, Shawn (12) 0:07:22 0:43:04 0:23:51 1:14:17 7 Sholar, John (10) 0:08:17 0:46:00 0:24:47 1:19:04 8 DeCoster, Ryan (14) 0:07:21 0:51:06 0:22:00 1:20:27 9 ALves, Steve (Adult) 0:07:59 0:41:28 0:31:04 1:20:31 10 Cossey, Leightyn (10) 0:09:15 0:45:34 0:26:08 1:20:57 11 Miller, Steve (9) 0:08:03 0:52:13 0:21:04 1:21:20 12 Nysveen, Anthony (15) 0:09:44 0:52:26 0:22:54 1:25:04 13 DeCoster, Tyler (12) 0:08:48 0:52:42 0:23:40 1:25:10 14 Ladd, David (Adult) 0:14:04 0:40:08 0:34:59 1:29:11 15 Hill, Justin (9) 0:08:17 0:52:02 0:32:48 1:33:07 16 Corbett, Cory (10) 0:08:03 0:53:51 0:33:22 1:35:16 17 Alves, Julie (13) 0:06:26 0:56:08 0:35:18 1:37:52 18 Corbett, Renee (12) 0:07:48 0:54:47 0:35:17 1:37:52 19 Everts, Candace (Adult) 0:11:22 0:57:59 0:28:34 1:37:55 20 Everts, Logan (9) 0:11:22 0:57:59 0:28:34 1:37:55 21 Fortin, Amy (9) 0:09:30 0:55:16 0:40:50 1:45:36 22 Corbett, Audrey (8) 0:09:50 1:02:31 0:39:41 1:52:02 23 Everts, Kate (8) 0:13:02 0:59:27 0:39:33 1:52:02 24 Premo, Molly (9) 0:09:48 1:02:21 0:39:53 1:52:02 25 Everts, Grace (6) 0:11:22 1:11:19 0:33:39 1:56:20 26 Everts, Eric (Adult) 0:13:02 1:09:39 0:33:41 1:56:22See RESULTS, Page 16junior high school student Tyler, squeeze on to his kindergartner sister Claire’s little bike and do two laps of the air eld. 7) Excellent participation among the 2nd thru 4th Graders.

Munich The 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany, were supposed to be a peaceful gathering of outstanding athletes from around the world, but on September 5, the games took a sinister turn when eight masked Palestinian terrorists invaded the Olympic village, killing two Israeli athletes and abducting nine others. The kidnappers demanded safe passage out of Germany in addition to the release of Arab prisoners in Israeli and German prisons, but when they arrived at the Munich airport they were met by German police and military forces, and in the melee that followed, all nine hostages were killed. In the wake of the killings, the Israeli government gave Mossad, the nation’s intelligence agency, a special assignment — to track down and eliminate the Palestinians responsible for the death of the Israeli athletes Eight Below Eight brave sled dogs search for the master who is looking for a way to rescue them in this adventure drama. An American geologist (Bruce Greenwood) ies to Antarctica to participate in a project at the United States Research Base, where he teams up with arctic guide Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker) and his best friend, Cooper (Jason Biggs). The scientist soon discovers that Shepard also has eight other valuable friends — a pack of sled dogs he’s worked with for years, who have rescued him from a number of tight spots. Firewall, A businessman becomes the last line of defense for his family and his business in this thriller. Jack Stan eld (Harrison Ford) is an upper-echelon technology executive at Landrock Paci c Bank, a leading nancial institution based in Seattle. Stan eld oversees security for Landrock, and has made sure that their online banking services are the bestprotected in the world, and that the bank’s data is safe from hackers and other intruders.

Levitt’s maintenance principles were found to be very informative and gave employees a better understanding of how to further utilize maintenance and asset management principles in their own work areas. Attendees had the opportunity to share their own challenges and solutions to maintenance with other departments. Comments that further endorsed the value of the seminar were that “It made us more aware of costs related to preventive maintenance activities,” and that “It emphasized the importance of data, moving us toward a more accurate and educated level of decision making.”The Mission Operations Maintenance Management Department views this seminar as an important step toward further progress and implementation of Maintenance Management as not only a PWS contract requirement but a better way to conduct standard maintenance policies. Responsibility for millions of dollars of USAKA assets has made this seminar an invaluable opportunity for KRS and other contract employees. It provided awareness of concepts and tools that document percentage of availability by tracking mean time between failures and mean time to repair allowing departments to adjust preventative and corrective maintenance schedules to preclude breakdowns, loss of availability, and keep equipment functioning at optimal capacity. Levitt suggests in his Handbook of Maintenance Management that “the new paradigm of business is to focus on streamlining, reducing inputs, and making processes more responsive and ef cient.” The following 11 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

Saturday, June 3, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 14 W a t e r o u t a g e Water outageA twelve-hour potable-water outage is scheduled to start at 8 p.m., tonight and end at 8 a.m., Sunday. The affected buildings include 703 (Caf Paci c and Bakery), 704 (Macy’s, Snackbar, UPH), 706 (Post Of ce), 712 (Mini-Mall), 721 (Chiller Building), and 728 (Boiler Plant). Every effort will be made to reduce the length of the outage and restore water pressure as soon as possible. Call Stan Jazwinski at 51847 or Hilton Crutch eld at 59081, for more information.Dining services will be limited tonight through Sunday due to replacement and repair of potable water mains to dining facilities. The water line work is a part of preparations for the upcoming demolition of the Paci c Bachelor Quarters. After the replacement/repair of the pipe is completed, dining facilities will not be able to resume full normal operations until tests con rm that there is no problem with use of the water. The combined effect of pipe work and water testing will result in up to 36 hours of limited water availability in dining facilities beginning tonight. Dining services personnel have worked with the chief medical of cer and sanitarian to develop an interim operational plan that continues to provide basic food service while assuring that there is zero risk to customers. Clearance for return to normal operations is expected by early Monday. Speci c changes for dining facilities are: Cafe Paci c : --Meal service will be limited to unaccompanied personnel all day Sunday and for breakfast on Monday. --Continental breakfast for Sunday and Monday. --Box lunches for brunch on Sunday. --Limited hot menu for dinner on Sunday.--Return to normal services for Monday. Three Palms Snack Bar: --Early 7 p.m. closure tonight. --Closed all day Sunday. --Return to normal services on Monday morning.

If the allegations about what those Marines supposedly did turns out to be true, I wouldn’t be surprised that it happened. I’m surprised that it hasn’t happened more often. Can any of us imagine what it must be like to go on a foot patrol or ride in a convoy not knowing what’s waiting around every corner, in every window, on every rooftop or in every mound of dirt along the road? The pressure, tension and fear must be almost unbearable. So, if those Marines snapped after seeing another one of their own killed by yet another bomb they couldn’t protect themselves from, it may not be condonable, but it’s certainly understandable. I want to throw a brick through my TV when I see the wailing and wringing of hands by some of the pundits and by some politicians who call those Marines murderers and ‘bad apples.’ I’d like to point out that as far as I know, nothing’s been proven yet. But, the Marines who were placed in that impossible situation will no doubt be thrown to the wolves to appease the political gods. The Marines and all the American Armed Forces have a long history of RESULTS, from Page 7 honorable service and humane treatment of their enemies and especially of women and children. So when something like this takes place, it hurts because Americans have always seen themselves as being better. War is a horrible thing. People die in war. That’s why it should always be the very last resort. I don’t know what really happened in Haditha. I hope it wasn’t the slaughter that it’s been painted to be. But in any case, maybe we should ponder if too much is expected of our Marines and Soldiers in Iraq. We are asking them to be saints in the middle of a place that’s hell.
