There were gale force winds, sheets of rain and huge swells that tossed the men tightly packed on board the vessels. Those men were in agony with seasickness and there was hardly any space below decks where it didn’t reek of vomit and sweat. What those sick, miserable men would attempt to do the next morning was the biggest gamble in the history of mankind. At 3:30 a.m., June 6, 1944, the men were brought up on the decks of the ships. As the dawn broke in a misty fog, the sea had calmed and the men were at their stations. They peered through the fog and the smoke of the big Navy guns and the Air Corps bombs that had pounded the land for hours and saw the coast of France. On the expanse of shore the ships were spread out along, the men could see places that history would call Juno, Gold, Sword, Utah and one that was code named ‘Easy Red.’ It would be known as Omaha. They were the ve beaches the troops would land on. As the covering re lifted, the men climbed down the nets into landing craft and began the long journey to the shore. The men of the U.S. 1st Division and the U.S. 29th Infantry Division headed for the six-mile wide Omaha Beach. The battle-hardened German 352nd Infantry Division waited behind some 15,000 concrete bunkers and machine gun nests positioned for criss-cross re over the beach, all sitting atop a 150foot bluff. In addition, anti-personnel and anti-tank mines had been planted under the sand and razor-sharp concertina wire had been strung on the beach. That place was about to become ‘bloody’ Omaha. As the landing craft approached the beaches, the men could hear the German bullets hitting the steel ramps. They could see German artillery shells blowing apart landing craft on either side of them. Even though they came in at low tide, the re was so intense that many landing craft stopped short and when the troops stepped off the lowered ramps with 65 pound packs of equipment, they sank in 20-foot water and drowned. Others had to wade helplessly through 50-100 yards of chest deep water exposed to re to get to the beach. For the ones who made it closer in or all the way to the beach, when the ramps dropped, there was no protection Rhonda Johnson has served in the Common Access Cards of ce for the past two years.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, June 7, 2006 3Strengthening cooperation Joint committee meeting discusses fuel sales, ber optics, new renewable energy technologyBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorA United States and Republic of the Marshall Islands working level joint committee meeting was held on Kwajalein Friday. Attendees included U.S. Ambassador to the RMI Greta Morris, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander COL Beverly Stipe, Robert Muller, RMI chief secretary; RMI Minister of Foreign Affairs Gerald M. Zackios, Kwajalein Atoll Senators Justin deBrum and Jeban Riklon; Minister of Public Works Mattlan Zackhras, Minister of Health Alvin Jacklick, Noda Lojkar, RMI representative to USAKA; Helen Reed-Row, deputy chief of mission, American Embassy, Majuro, RMI; Dennis O’Connell, USAKA command judge advocate; Maj. Jeffrey Klein, director, USAKA Host Nations Activities and Tom Maus, military liaison, public affairs, American Embassy, Majuro. “These meetings strengthen our cooperation,” Morris said adding that the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands have an unique and close relationship. The working level meeting lasted several hours. Committee members reviewed old issues including RMI Ministry of Health/Tripler Army Medical Center Memorandum of Agreement; sale of defense energy supply center fuel to Kwajalein Atoll Joint Utilities and Resources; joint labor relations board; ber optics update; banking at USAKA; Memorandum of Procedures for RMI representative with ombudsman responsibilities; use of PM&O and use of RMI contractors. Klein said USAKA researched the sale of DESC fuel to KAJUR but it can’t be done. The Department of Defense cannot sell DESC fuel except for exigent emergency situations or to support Morale, Welfare and Recreation activities. Klein explained MWR activities as events sponsored by USAKA with RMI participation such as a shing tournament. Stipe said that the ber optics project is moving forward. “The cost has not changed. There are no major road blocks and the project should be complete by the end of 07 or beginning of 08.” New items of discussion included transportation for burials in mid-atoll corridor of Kwajalein Atoll; port training for RMI port authority employees; Eniwetak conservation area; ocean thermal energy conservation and RMI-USAKA/SMDC Memorandum of Agreement update. Kelly Busquets, USAKA directorate of public works, gave a brie ng on OTEC implementation. OTEC is a renewable energy system which would provide Kwajalein’s power while using between 30 and 40 percent less fossil fuel. Byproducts of OTEC are potable water, cooling water for air conditioning and nutrient-rich water for aquaculture. USAKA is examining the possibility of using OTEC technology to provide power to USAKA to reduce costs and provide an environmentally friendly source of energy. Busquets said an OTECbased energy source would bene t USAKA as it would provide a consistent price for energy costs and would stabilize the operating budget. The Of ce of Naval Research identi ed Kwajalein as the best candidate for OTEC. The U.S. Navy is building an OTEC oating platform off of Diego Garcia, and USAKA plans on using the research for that project to jumpstart the research for a Kwajalein OTEC facility. Busquets said it has not been determined whether the USAKA facility would be built on land or would be in the water. OTEC uses the difference in water temperatures to create energy. Busquets said that in Hawaii an OTEC facility is using nutrientrich water for a shrimp farm. She added that it may be possible for the RMI to tie into the Kwajalein facility to provide water and energy for Ebeye as well as aquaculture possibilities. USAKA predicts having the OTEC facility in operation by December, 2009. RMI representatives stated interest in this project and said that their government is researching a similar OTEC facility for Majuro. USAKA may provide transportation for burials, on a reimbursable status, in the mid-atoll corridor of Kwajalein Atoll. The USAKA HNO is researching the options for this as well as reimbursable training for RMI port authority employees. This was both Morris’ and Stipe’s last JCM. The meetings are required by the Amended Compact Agreement. The next formal meeting will be after the new year in Majuro. For more information on RMI/ USAKA issues, contact the USAKA HNO at 55325.

Wednesday, June 7, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Nations of the world that took part in the D-Day invasion of Europe Belgium The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full con dence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory. Good luck, and let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking. — from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s D-Day order.Most of the 1,100 of cers and men of the Royal Australian Volunteer Naval Reserve taking part in Operation Neptune on D-Day served aboard British ships or as commanders of several landing otillas and motor torpedo boats. Approximately 11,000 Royal Australian Air Force of cers and men served with Royal Air Force or RAAF squadrons for every phase of D-Day. Australia also provided 15 percent of the 1136 aircraft committed by Bomber Command on D-Day. The Belgian Section of the RAF received of cial recognition as Belgian Forces on June 4, 1942. On D-Day Belgium's 350th Squadron participated in the aerial defense of Gold and Sword Beaches. Before the amphibious landing got underway, Belgium's 349th Squadron provided covering re for the US 82nd Airborne Division's drop at Sainte-Mre-ƒglise. Two Belgian corvettes, three merchant ships, and three Congo boats also served in Operation Neptune.Australia On D-Day about 15,000 troops serving in Canada's Third Infantry Division landed on Juno Beach under the operational control of the British 1st Corps. The Royal Canadian Air Force committed 39 strategic and tactical squadrons on D-Day, ying 230 sorties of the 1,200 mounted by Bomber Command. Nearly 10,000 of cers and men (more than six times the strength of the Royal Canadian Navy in 1939) served aboard the 126 Canadian ghting ships, 44 landing craft among them, participating in Operation Neptune on D-Day.Canada Because the Free Czechoslovakian Army's 1st Armored Brigade did not deploy to Normandy until several weeks after the Allied landing, Czechoslovakia's participation in D-Day was limited to the air. Of the four Czechoslovakian squadrons ying with the RAF, all took part in D-Day. The colors own at the National D-day Memorial are those of the former Czechoslovakia as well as the present Czech Republic. Their display here implicitly and respectfully acknowledges the contributions of those who lived in what is now Slovakia to the Allied effort on D-Day.Czechoslovakia France contributed three ghter groups and four bomber groups to the Allied Expeditionary Air Force on D-Day. Two French cruisers and a destroyer took part in the naval bombardment, and French frigates, corvettes, and submarine chasers performed escort duty. The contribution of the Maquis (French Forces of the Interior) to the D-Day landing is noteworthy and includes the disruption of lines of communication such as bridges, railways, roads, and land lines as well as the sabotage and destruction of Nazi vehicles and equipment.France Limiting its naval and military commitment primarily to the Balkans and Mediterranean, Greece nevertheless did deploy two Royal Hellenic Navy corvettes for Operation Neptune. Those vessels escorted convoys to Juno, Gold, and Sword Beaches. As was the case with individual citizens of other Nazi-occupied or neutral nations, including some who were unable to contribute either units or vessels to the Allied Expeditionary Force, a number of Greek soldiers, sailors, and airmen served as volunteers with Allied Forces on D-Day.Greece Sumatra, its armor dismantled, was intentionally scuttled near the shore to form part of the breakwater for one of the arti cial harbors that were critical to the operation's logistical support. Netherlands About 30,000 members of the Royal New Zealand Air Force were in Operation Overlord. Squadrons of New Zealand's ghters and bombers ew in every phase, the former performing with particular ef cacy above Omaha Beach on D-Day. Some 4,000 of cers and men of the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve also took part in Operation Neptune. On D-Day many of New Zealand's junior of cers commanded either landing craft delivering troops to the British beaches or one of the numerous motor torpedo boats interdicting German E-boats.New Zealand the cargo ships were scuttled to create a breakwater for landing craft. On D-Day two ghter squadrons from the Royal Norwegian Air Force in exile ew in the Norwegian Wing of the Allied Second Tactical Air Force. Norway Mindful of Germany's Sept. 1, 1939 invasion of Poland, the government-in-exile was eager for its forces to participate in D-Day. Polish ground troops did not deploy until later, but the Polish Wing of the 84th Royal Air Force Group and a Polish bomber squadron supported the D-Day landing. One Polish destroyer took part in the Eastern Task Force's naval bombardment of the coast; four additional Polish warships as well as eight merchant ships played various roles in Operation Neptune.Poland On D-Day the British Second Army composed of two corps (including three British divisions with auxiliary units and services some 62,000 Britons) landed on and around Gold Beach, Sword Beach, and along the Orne River toward Caen. The UK provided about 80 percent of the Allied warships in Operation Neptune. The Royal Air Force ew 5,656 sorties in direct support of the landing. Air Chief Marshal Arthur Tedder served as deputy supreme commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force. The senior land, sea, and air commanders were British.United Kingdom On D-Day the U.S.First Army comprising two corps ( ve divisions with auxiliary units and services about 73,000 troops) landed on and around Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, and the Cotentin Peninsula. The US provided 16.5 percent of the Allied warships in Operation Neptune and hundreds of landing vessels. Two U.S. air forces 6,080 tactical and strategic aircraft served in the Allied Expeditionary Air Force. United States

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, June 7, 2006 D-Day, June 6, 19445 See D-DAY, Page 6"You ask, What is our policy?' I will say; "It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, What is our aim?' I can answer with one word: Victoryvictory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival." — Winston ChurchillInformation from the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and MuseumThe D-Day operation of June 6, 1944 brought together the land, air and sea forces of the allied armies in what became known as the largest invasion force in human history. The operation, given the codename OVERLORD, delivered ve naval assault divisions to the beaches of Normandy, France. The invasion force included 7,000 ships and landing craft manned by over 195,000 naval personnel from eight allied countries. Almost 133,000 troops from England, Canada and the United States landed on D-Day. Casualties from the three countries during the landing numbered 10,300. By June 30th, more than 850,000 men, 148,000 vehicles, and 570,000 tons of supplies had landed on the Normandy shores. Fighting by the brave soldiers, sailors and airmen of the allied forces western front and Russian forces on the eastern front led to the defeat of German Nazi forces. On May 7, 1945, German General Alfred Jodl signed an unconditional surrender at Reims, France. Prelude to Operation OverlordDuring the rst six months of 1944, the United States and Great Britain concentrated land, naval, and air forces in England to prepare for Operation Overlord, the assault on Hitler’s “Fortress Europe.” While the Soviet Union tied down a great portion of the enemy’s forces, the western Allies marshaled their resources, trained their forces, separately and jointly, for the operation, and ne tuned the invasion plans to take full advantage of their joint and combined capabilities. Before the invasion, the air and sea components played major roles. The 12,000 planes of the Allied air forces swept the Luftwaffe from the skies, photographed enemy defenses, dropped supplies to the resistance, bombed railways, attacked Germany’s industries and isolated the battle eld. The Allies’ naval component was similarly active during the buildup. The navies escorted convoys, patrolled and protected the English Channel, reconnoitered beaches and beach defenses, conducted amphibious rehearsals and organized loaded a mighty otilla to land the assault forces in France. Meanwhile, the nine army divisions (three airborne and six infantry) from the United States, Britain and Canada trained and rehearsed their roles in the carefully choreographed operation. Rangers climbed cliffs, engineers destroyed beach obstacles, quartermasters stockpiled supplies and infantrymen waded through the English surf as each honed the skills necessary for the invasion’s success. D-Day operations The invasion itself gave prominence to land forces but provided major roles for air and sea components. Allied air forces carried three airborne divisions into battle, protected the force as it crossed the English Channel, and attacked targets throughout the invasion area before and after the landing in support of the assault forces. More than 5,000 ships--from battle ships to landing craft--carried, escorted and landed the assault force along the Normandy coast. Once the force was landed, naval gun re provided critical support for the soldiers as they fought their way across the beaches. In the invasion’s early hours, more than 1,000 transports dropped paratroopers to secure the anks and beach exits of the assault area. Amphibious craft landed some 125,000 troops on ve beaches along 50 miles of Normandy coast between the Cotentin Peninsula and the Orne River while the air forces controlled the skies overhead. In the eastern zone, the British and Canadians landed on GOLD, JUNO and SWORD Beaches. The American landed on two beaches in the west--UTAH and OMAHA. As the Allies came ashore, they took the rst steps on the nal road to victory in Europe. Omaha Beach The landing by regiments of the 1st and 29th Infan-Origins of the term D-DayD-Day is the date on which a particular military operation is set to begin. Use of D-Day allows military planners to work in advance on what needs to be done before the beginning of that operation, as well as document in the plan the expected progress in the days following commencement of the action. For example, D minus one or D-1 would be the day prior to the military operation. D plus one or D+1 would be the second day of the operation. By use of the generic term D-Day the planning document does not have to be revised if the original starting date is postponed or changed. The most famous D-day remains 6 June, 1944, the day during World War II when Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy, France beginning Operation Overlord. [NOTE: The original D-Day for the Normandy invasion was set for 5 June 1944, but was postponed one day because of bad weather.]

Wednesday, June 7, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6SEE COUNCIL on Page 12School Advisory Council holds last meeting of year try divisions and Army Rangers on OMAHA Beach was even more dif cult than expected. When the rst wave landed at 6:30am, the men found that naval gun re and relanding air bombardments had not softened German defenses or resistance. Along the 7,000 yards of Normandy shore German defenses were as close to that of an Atlantic Wall as any of the D-Day beaches. Enemy positions that looked down from bluffs as high as 170 feet, and water and beach obstacles strewn across the narrow strip of beach, stopped the assault at the water’s edge for much of the morning of D-Day. By mid-morning, initial reports painted such a bleak portrait of beachhead conditions that Lt. Gen. Omar Bradley, United States First Army commander, considered pulling off the beach and landing troops elsewhere along the coast. However, during these dark hours, bravery and initiative came to the fore. As soldiers struggled, one leader told his men that two types of people would stay on the beach--the dead and those going to die--so they’d better get the hell out of there, and they did. Slowly, as individuals and then in groups, soldiers began to cross the re-swept beach. Supported by Allied naval gun re from destroyers steaming dangerously close to shore, the American infantrymen gained the heights and beach exits and drove the enemy inland. By day’s end V Corps had a tenuous toehold on the Normandy Coast, and the force consolidated to protect its gains and prepare for the next step on the road to Germany. Utah Beach In the predawn darkens of June 6, the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions were air dropped behind UTAH Beach to secure four causeways across a ooded area directly behind the beach and to protect the invasion’s western ank. Numerous factors caused the paratroopers to miss their drop zones and become scattered across the Norman countryside. However, throughout the night and into the day the airborne troops gathered and organized themselves and went on to accomplish their missions. Ironically, the paratroopers’ wide dispersion bene ted the invasion. With paratroopers in so many places, the Germans never developed adequate responses to the airborne and amphibious assaults. The 4th Infantry Division was assigned to take UTAH Beach. In contrast with OMAHA Beach, the 4th Division’s landing went smoothly. The rst wave landed 2,000 yards south of the planned beach--one of the Allies’ more fortuitous opportunities on D-Day. The original beach was heavily defended in comparison to the light resistance and few xed defenses encountered on the new beach. After a personal reconnaissance, Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt Jr., who accompanied the rst wave, decided to exploit the opportunity and altered the original plan. He ordered that landing craft carrying the successive assault waves land reinforcements, equipment and supplies to capitalize on the rst wave’s success. Within hours, the beachhead was secured and the 4th Division started inland to contact the airborne divisions scattered across the front. As in the OMAHA zone, at day’s end the UTAH Beach forces had not gained all of their planned objectives. However, a lodgment was secured, and, most important, once again the American soldier’s resourcefulness and initiative had rescued the operation from oundering along the Normandy coast. D-DAY from Page 5Hourglass reportsThe nal Kwajalein School Advisory Council public meeting for the 2005-2006 school year was on May 24. The last day of school for students was Thursday and Friday for teachers. Graduation was held on May 26. Biannual customer satisfaction surveys were conducted during the February parent-teacher conferences. The results were released at the SAC public meeting. Areas surveyed included: the school, the teachers and the principal. A majority of parents gave George Seitz Elementary School a grade of ‘A’ or ‘A+’ compared to schools in the states. Thirty-eight of the 41 parents described the amount of homework given as ‘about right.’ Three-fourths of the parents think that homework should not be assigned over a vacation or holiday. Areas were rated between ‘very poor quality’ to ‘excellent quality.’ Comments from the elementary school surveys indicated that small class size was preferred; approval of the student-to-teacher ratio with good access to the teachers and that there are high quality teachers with interesting lesson plans. The comments suggested that the majority of parents would like to see an expanded and updated library/media center. Parents of junior and senior high school students used the same rating scale on the survey. Sixty ve percent gave the Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School a grade of ‘A’ or ‘A+’ compared to schools in the states. Seventy-four percent of parents described the homework given as ‘about right,’ and two-thirds of parents think that homework should not be assigned over a vacation or holiday. Parents indicated that they like the following qualities of Kwajalein schools: small class size, student-teacher ratio, personal interest teachers take with children, good teacher and student interaction and that the staff and principal do a good job. However, junior and senior high school parents can see room for improvement. They suggested that the high school curriculum be expanded with more honors courses and more advanced placement classes and that the school, especially the restrooms, be cleaner. Two items were read, voted and approved. The rst, Policy 6000.12, Reporting Child Abuse, was inconsistent with the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll policy. It was rewritten to read: ‘Any person who becomes aware of facts or circumstances which cause

Some took what cover they could behind concrete anti-tank obstacles the Germans had built on the beach, some made it the 250 yards from the water line to the base of the bluffs, some were pinned down at the water by murderous re. As the second wave of troops came in to Omaha, it was like a scene from hell. German mortars, artillery and machine guns raked the beach with re. Little more than a third of the rst wave had made it to dry land. Navy crews stood to their guns on the ships wanting to give covering re to the pinned down troops, but most of the radio operators and artillery spotters that had landed on the beach were dead. There was no one to guide their re. Finally, in a courageous act of desperation, some Navy destroyers ran into the beach so close they were scraping the bottom and opened re on German positions. Inch by inch, the troops began to move up the beach. They blew apart the concertina wire and slowly started to climb the bluffs. They attacked enemy positions one by one for hours. As evening fell, the beach was littered with burning, smoking vehicles, smashed landing craft and the dead and wounded. D-Day has been called the ‘longest day.’ For those men who landed on Omaha Beach, it truly was. It had started at 3:30 a.m. and ended as they dug in for the night around 8 p.m. For many of them, it had been their rst and last day of war. There were 125,000 men who landed on the ve beaches of France that June 6 in 1944. They were American, Canadian, British, French, Polish and a scattering of other nationalities united for a common cause. The hopes of the world had rested on their shoulders. The biggest gamble in history had been successful. But it had succeeded not because of the great plans or any great generals. It succeeded because of the courage and determination of those 125,000 men who fought on those beaches. It’s been 62 years since that day and that’s a long time. There’s not too many of those men left now. They pass away every day. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said of those Soldiers, “We may never see their like again.” The story of what they did shouldn’t pass away with them. Tales of sacri ce and bravery should never fade with time.
