By Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service The Soldiers and Marines in Hit, Iraq put up with more adversity in their deployment than most Americans will see in a lifetime. And they do it with a great attitude. These are not some goody-goody type servicemembers. They are profane to the extreme, and expletives make an appearance in most conversations. No one takes offense. “Busting chops” is a ne art, and people are always ready to tell or listen to a ne story that uses a buddy as the butt of the joke. But life in Hit, like the troops’ language and jokes, is hard. The town’s name is spelled “hit,” but is pronounced “heat,” and the place is hot. The temperature now hovers around 120 degrees. It will climb to 130 by the end of the month. There is always a wind blowing in Hit, but it might as well be a hair dryer. A good way to get a feel for what the Soldiers here go through is to stick your head inside a convection oven for an hour. Now add to that the gear. The interceptor body armor and Kevlar helmet make you understand why aluminum foil around a potato bakes it faster. Soldiers and Marines carry more than 90 pounds of equipment weapons, a combat load of ammunition, rst-aid pouches, global positioning system equipment, communications gear and the like every time they go outside the wire. Try running down a street carrying all that, because that is what servicemembers must do here. The unit has Bradley ghting vehicles, but walking among the town’s people is Today class, I’d like to talk to you about some ammunition history. In the early 1900s, the U.S. Army was engaged in the Philippines against Moros ghters. The Moros were fanatical and considered ghting U.S. forces to be a jihad (does that sound familiar). The standard issue sidearm for U.S. Soldiers then was the .38 caliber revolver. There were numerous times when a Moro warrior would take several hits to the body with .38 bullets and still keep ghting. Due to that experience, the Army looked for a new sidearm that would have more ‘stopping’ power than the .38 revolver. The answer was the 1911 Government Model .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol. It had a magazine capacity of seven rounds of much heavier grain ammunition than the .38 and had tremendous ‘stopping’ power and could in ict torso one-shot kills. It could take down an enemy who might be high on drugs or lled with ‘religious fervor.’ The .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol was the standard issue sidearm of the U.S. military for decades until the adoption of the 9 mm Beretta semiautomatic pistol, which of course, res a lighter grain 9 mm round. The ‘advantage’ of the Beretta over the .45 is a higher magazine capacity. It can carry 15 rounds versus the seven rounds of the .45 The ‘stopping’ power of the 9 mm is not as effective as the .45 caliber, but the thinking is that in combat, aimed shots are rare and the ability to re many rounds quickly at a target or targets was more important than knock down power. The theory has a name in gun circles. It’s called ‘spray and pray.’ During World War I, World War II and the Korean War, the American infantryman used one of four basic weapons. There was the MI Garand semi-automatic ri e which carried eight 30-06 rounds in stripper clips and was called the most deadly ri e in the world; the Thompson sub machine gun which red the .45 caliber ACP; the MI .30-caliber carbine which had 15 or 30 round magazines and could be red as a semi-automatic or full automatic and the Browning Automatic Ri e which red the 30-06 cartridge. The Browning’s weight of 15 pounds without ammo made it hard to use at close quarters. It’s main function was to lay down suppressing re. Due to

By Nell M. Drumheller EditorOn Friday morning a small park surrounding the turtle pond was dedicated to Dr. Donald W. Ott. It is now the Dr. Don Ott Turtle Pond Memorial Park. “No one is more deserving of this than Don,” Les Jones, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll deputy garrison commander said at the ceremony. Jones continued, “He provided good stewardship of the environment.” Ott lived on Kwajalein for nearly 11 years. He arrived in October 1989 tasked with the responsibility of cleaning up the waste that had amassed over the years. He worked closely with the Republic of the Marshall Islands government and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to bring under environmental compliance with the EPA. “When Don rst came to Kwajalein in 1989 there was a lot going on,” Randy Gallien from the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command said at the ceremony. “Don was concerned with environmental issues and impacts. This position was hard moved and for the good of the environment.” Gallien said. “He fostered trust with the RMI, EPA and the Fish and Game. The friends he developed are here today to help with the current issues,” Gallien added. He added that the principles put in place by Ott resulted in a shrinking land ll. John Bungitak, from the RMI Environmental Protection Authority said Ott’s philosophy followed the cultures of the Paci c island nations and made sense. He added that Ott was responsible for bringing the RMI onto the USAKA environmental team. “He respected and appreciated the people of the RMI,” Bungitak said. “We spent almost 11 years on Kwajalein,” Georgia, Ott’s widow said. Georgia and their son, Tom, traveled to Kwajalein


Saturday, June 10, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Police get new chief, site managerNew lawmen in town By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe top three tiers of leadership at Kwajalein Police Department have changed. Lieutenant Moses Moreno, a Kwajalein citizen for seven years, was promoted to captain on Thursday and named the deputy chief of police. Moreno has more than 27 years experience in law enforcement. “As the deputy chief of police my responsibilities are to provide effective and ef cient leadership to the community and command elements regarding a wide range of police, law enforcement and security services,” Moreno said. Two island newcomers, Joe Barnes and Paul J. Sefcik, are now the new chief of police and KPD interim resident manager. Both assumed their duties on Tuesday. Barnes comes to Kwajalein from Huntsville, Ala. where he was the Program manager of the Alutiiq Global Solutions contract Multimedia Visual Information on Redstone Arsenal, Ala. He began his law enforcement career in 1980 through the U.S. Air Force Security Police and has actively been a part of the law enforcement community ever since. “As chief, I see my primary role is to continue the outstanding support to this unique community that the outgoing administration has started. Of course, like anyone in my position, I have my own approach and manner of conducting the business of the day. Law enforcement’s motto has always been to ‘protect and serve.’ I want this community to rest their heads peacefully at night knowing that there are those still awake watching and assuring they and their families are safe. I’ll emphasize to our outstanding of cers that they serve you. That is our charter! However, we as a department can serve you best, is what I will strive to do,” Barnes said. Barnes replaces Capt. Jeff Mullin, who will be transferring to Florida to launch a new Alutiiq contract. Barnes wife of 25 years, Jackie, will join him later this month. “In the short time that I have been on the island, I would assess the biggest law enforcement issue to be community support. As a department, we can’t ‘protect and serve’ effectively a community that doesn’t empower us to do so. I look forward to meeting with the community and the community leaders to address their concerns along with brainstorming ideas to help us become better at the service we provide,” Barnes said. He hopes to bridge and build a positive open line of communication with the command group and the community. “To my of cers, I extend an ‘open door policy,’ and I want to help them be the very best ambassadors to our community as they can. I extend that same offer to all of my new ‘Kwaj family,’” he added. Barnes brings experience as a youth pastor to the table. He admitted that boredom among juveniles can result in problems. “Not having enough things to do or positive places to go to ll their time opens the door for them [juveniles] to create their own. It takes a proactive approach that involves rst the parents, key personnel on the island who have a knack for being able to speak their language, and the community as a whole, which includes this department. Bottom line, kids don’t have access to alcohol, cigarettes and drugs by buying it themselves. No, they have access because an adult, who can buy it and either doesn’t secure it, or they provide it directly to them. Despite this, I am positive that with all of us working on the island together we can help provide our ‘Kwaj kids’ positive, interesting and fun activities that keep them busy and productive. For certain, Chief Joe and KPD can’t do it alone….Look forward to working with you all,” Barnes said. Sefcik is a retired U.S. Army Brigade Command Sergeants Major. He retired in 1995 from the 3d Military Police Group (CID) at Ft. Gillem, Ga. Sefcik has 32 years of progressively responsible leadership, management experience and instruction with proven achievements in directing activities focused on homeland security including Emergency Management Services, Force Protection, Antiterrorism, Law Enforcement, Capt. Moses Moreno Chief Joe Barnes Manager Paul Sefcik"A priority is effective communication with the community, replacing rumor with fact and ensuring the community knows that they have an open door to voice their concerns to me concerning KPD and our community — Paul Sefcik, KPD interim site manager

Sefcik’s previous assignment was as the program manager for a government contract under the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Protective Services, Southern Florida. He replaced Mickey Stepanov, who joins Mullin in Florida on the new Alutiiq contract. This is a temporary position for Sefcik, and he will be remain unaccompanied, with his wife and daughter in Alabama.The KPD resident manager’s role is to oversee the KPD operation while interfacing with the provost marshal’s office, the command group and community. “Having been involved in law enforcement and security for my entire adult life, I will interface "I look forward to meeting with the community and the community leaders to address their concerns along with brainstorming ideas to help us become better at the service we provide."— Joe Barnes, chief of policewith the KPD leadership team daily, however, will allow the chief and deputy chief the opportunity to run their department in the best manner to serve and protect this community, which is their primary task,” Sefcik said. “Having had the opportunity to be on island for less than a week, I obviously look forward to interfacing with the entire community and ensuring that KPD is providing the services that are required to keep the community safe. I believe that communication with the community will assist in a long-lasting, professional relationship that will better serve everyone that visits, works and/or is assigned to this beautiful island. Having said that, we are planning to have a KPD Town Hall meeting in the very One of the functions of Kwajalein Police Department is to reinforce safty awareness by sponsoring events such as the Bike Rodeo for children.near term. This will provide the community with an opportunity to meet the new KPD leadership team and provide any concerns and/or issues they may have as we look toward the future,” Sefcik said. Sefcik said a priority is “effective communication with the community, replacing rumor with fact and ensuring members of the community know they have an open door to voice their concerns to me concerning KPD and our community.” He visited Kwajalein in March, and said of his visit, “What most impressed me was the professional, ‘can do’ attitude of all of our employees; law enforcement, constables, access control of cers and our support personnel.” He added, “I know that KPD is an excellent, full-spectrum law enforcement activity, and I’m excited about being a part of it as I am the community in which we serve. Although I may be the interim resident manager, I look forward to however long I have to ensure we continue to provide the quality and effective service this community deserves and expects.”

During the ceremony she thanked community members for their friendship and support. Ott died on Sept. 25, 2003. The turtle pond has been on Kwajalein since the early 1970s. It was a dirt lined swath/ditch at its earliest point, and then in 1995 the current structure was added. The nesting area and waterfall were added later. Turtles that were caught by area shermen were put into the pond for “pleasure” and for recuperation if they were hurt. At one point almost a dozen small turtles were kept in the pond at one time. As they grew larger they were released. There are three green sea turtles remaining in the pond: one adult male, one adult female, and one juvenile (sex unknown). There are also several species of sh that were selected to help keep the pond clean. These sh were selected and caught by the Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School Science Class under the guidance of teacher Eric Nelson. The adult turtles are approximately 40 to 50 years old and are in their breeding prime. The smallest turtle is probably only from 25 to 30 years old. USAKA released four sea turtles back into the ocean near Kwajalein Atoll on May 20, according to Ken Sims from USKAKA Environmental Of ce. “These turtles were held in captivity for many years on Kwajalein Atoll. Some of the turtles were originally injured and were brought to the turtle pond on Kwajalein for rehabilitation. Others were found as hatchlings and were raised entirely in captivity. Of the four turtles released, three were green sea turtles and one was a hawksbill. All sea turtles are protected by USAKA as required by the USAKA Environmental Standards which contain provisions similar to those in the U.S. Endangered Species Act,” Sims said. “No sea turtles have ever been released back into the environment of the Marshall Islands after such a long Honor roll for fourth quarter ending June 1 Georgia Ott shows her emotion during the dedication of the Dr. Don Ott Memorial Park Friday. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)period in captivity. In an effort to gain information about the survival of these turtles and to document their movements, two of the four turtles were tted with a satellite transmitter that will permit monitoring for up to a year. It is hoped that the information learned from these turtles will help the RMI government and USAKA learn more about the distribution and movement of sea turtles in this area of the Paci c Ocean. Similar efforts have been accomplished successfully from Hawaii but nothing in the RMI,” Sims continued. “All the turtles had a number placed on their shell and have metal tags on their ippers. The citizens of the RMI have been informed about the release through the RMI EPA. Any citizen that sees a sea turtle with a number or transmitter on it should note the location, day, and time, and report it to the RMI EPA. These turtles are not considered ideal for human consumption due to their captivity, and would best serve the RMI by remaining in the ocean. The RMI EPA requests that if any citizen should catch one of these turtles to please release it,” Sims said.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 10, 2006 7Keeping safety in mind helps avoid summer accidents By Dick Nugent Kwajalein Range Services Environmental, Safety and Health Being on Kwajalein with the constant warm weather makes it seem odd when I think about it being summer. But, we are past the Memorial Day holiday, school is out, and people are taking annual leave. So, I guess I am just going to admit that summer is here! With summer, come the usual activities of going on vacation, kids playing, cookouts, swimming, etc. All of these activities require some thought to avoid accidents. Vacation: Most of us travel off island. That usually requires driving vehicles on roads with more traf c and speed limits somewhat higher than those on Kwajalein. Make sure you are familiar with your vehicle and drive on less traveled roads at slower speeds, until you become used to it. Wear your seatbelts and, if traveling with a small child, use a child safety seat. Do not drive after consuming alcohol. If operating a motorcycle, wear your helmet and eye protection. Children: With the exception of the school lunch break traf c jam, we are not used to having many children in the streets. Make sure your kids know and follow the rules for safe biking and to be constantly on the lookout for oncoming traf c. When operating a vehicle, be vigilant in observing for children darting into the streets and do not assume they can see you or are watching out for you. Drive slowly near intersections, particularly in the housing areas. Cookouts: Cookouts are not uncommon on Kwajalein. However, we need to be reminded of a few A range operation is scheduled for Wednesday. Caution times are 7:01 p.m. through 3:01 a.m. Thursday. In conjunction with this operation, a caution area will exist within the Kwajalein Atoll. The caution area is bounded on the north by Boked Island on the east reef and Yabbernohr Island on the west reef. On the south, the area is bounded by a line drawn north of Bigej Island on the east reef to a point at latitude 08 54.2N, longitude 167 45.8E, then to a point at latitude 08 52.8N, longitude 167 45.8E, and then to a point north of the high tide mark on ninni island on the west reef. Bigej Island, including the inner reef, is speci cally excluded and is not a part of the mid-atoll corridor. All mid-atoll corridor islands are designated as sheltered islands. Additional areas speci ed outside the midatoll are designated as caution areas, see maps. In order to ensure clearance of non-mission support personnel from the mid-atoll corridor by the window opening time, Kwajalein Police Department island clearance procedures will begin at approximately 7:30 a.m., Sunday and continue until evacuation has been accomplished. Egress of all air and seacraft will be required when requested by authorized clearance personnel. Subsequent to lagoon clearance, the hazard area will be in effect until mission completion. In the event of a mission slip, the caution times and areas will be in effect for the following days: 7:01 p.m., Thursday through 3:01 a.m., Friday. Questions regarding the above safety requirements for this mission should be directed to USAKA Command Safety Directorate, Range Safety of cer at 51361.Range operation scheduled for Wednesday safety rules. Do not allow small children to play in the vicinity of a hot grill. Do not use a grill indoors or on an enclosed or covered porch. Turn the gas off when the grill is not in use and, if using a charcoal grill, make sure the coals are cold before disposing in the trash. From the food safety perspective, make sure you properly store, handle, and prepare your food to avoid becoming ill. Swimming: Being surrounded by water and having access to two swimming pools presents lots of opportunity for a mishap. Teach your children to swim. Never let children be left unattended around the water. Use the buddy system. Never swim or operate watercraft while intoxicated. By keeping safety in mind you can enjoy a safe summer season. DonÂ’t let an accident ruin if for you.

Hung-over, has-been cop Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) has seen better days, and all that the force expects out of him these days is to stay out of trouble while he’s on the clock. Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) is set to testify before a grand jury at 10: 00am, and it’s up to Mosely to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece a job that Mosely estimates will take a maximum of fteen minutes. A black van has been trailing the pair unnoticed though, and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosely emerges from the store just in time to save Eddie from the lethal bullet of a determined assassin. When backup arrives in the form of Detective Frank Nugent (David Morse), Mosely quickly realizes that the detective on Nugent’s team is the same cop that Bunker is set to testify against. Now faced with the tough task of dodging bullets and eluding a massive onslaught of corrupt cops, Mosely must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served. Stay Alive A group of teens discover that the next generation of survival horror games are more realistic than they thought when they begin dying in the same manner as their pixilated counterparts in director William Brent Bell’s bloody tale of video games gone bad.

If they sweat really badly, you can see the salt stains where it has soaked through the boots. There are port-a-potties at the main camp outside town, but contractors will not go into the rm bases or forward operating bases in the city itself. That means that at the rm bases they use things called “wag bags” for solid waste. The user seals the bag after its intended use and then deposits it in a burn barrel. You don’t want to have an open latrine, because that would attract insects. Urinals at the rm bases are tubes driven into the ground. There is city water and it sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t. You take showers when you can, and when the water is running. Don’t count on it to work when you want it to. And then there is the danger. Some men have been “IEDed” in a vehicle that got hit by an improvised explosive device a couple of times. Many in the 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry, are on their second tour in Iraq, and have a history with IEDs going back to 2003.Added to that is snipers. The unit’s only death has been to a sniper. One sniper in Anbar province goes by the name “Scorpion.” He has people videotape his kills and you can nd DVDs showing these kills in markets in Baghdad and all over the province.But with all this, the mood is good. Sure, the soldiers and Marines complain, but that is their right. When it comes to the mission, the troops step out and do what needs to be done. “I know when we look back on this in ve or 10 years, we won’t remember the hardships, except to laugh about them,” said Army Capt. Eric Stainbrook, Apache Company commander at 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry. “But I will always remember these amazing soldiers and the way they took on the mission when their country asked them to.”The following 14 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

Practice goodOPSECBRAVEST, from Page 2it’s weight and recoil, the ‘BAR’ man was always the biggest guy in the squad. All these weapons had one thing in common. They all red a heavy bullet that expended all of it’s energy at the point of impact. There was very little fragmentation of the bullet upon impact, great ‘stopping’ power, and one-shot kills were common. Even fanatical enemies could not stand up to the power that those bullets had. After World War II, studies concluded that the infantryman rarely engaged in combat beyond 300 meters. Therefore, a decision was made there was no need for the infantryman to have a ri e that red heavy bullets at long range, but that lighter ri es were needed that would enable troops to move faster more easily, and, if they had lighter ri es they could carry lighter ammo which meant they could carry more ammo with them. So the M14 and later the M16, was developed and used in Vietnam. It seemed the perfect weapon for the jungle combat of Vietnam. It was light, it could be red in semi-auto or full-auto mode, the ammo magazines were light and troops could carry many round of ammo with them. But the M16 res a 5.56 by 45 mm round which is similar to a .22 caliber. That caliber is considered by many experts to be far less lethal than the heavier calibers used in previous weapons. What started me looking into this was an article on the CBS News Web site about the ammo used by troops in Iraq. According to that article, many of the troops have complained about how they have red numerous shots that hit insurgents in the torso but they don’t go down. It stated that in at least one instance, an insurgent was hit seven times, stayed on his feet and killed two American Soldiers and wounded seven more before being killed with a close range pistol shot to the head. Many of the insurgents in Iraq use the AK-47 or later variations that re the 7.62 by 39 mm round which is similar to a .30 caliber full-size ri e round and has a great lethal impact effectiveness. A lighter round such as the 5.56 by 45 mm tumbles when it is red and when it impacts, it will fragment. This can cause grievous wounds and a lot of blood loss. But it doesn’t always impact with enough force to knock down or kill with one or two shots to the torso, especially if the enemy is ‘fanatical’. Also, some tests have shown that beyond 100 yards, the 5.56 mm round can fail to tumble and therefore in ict even less damage to an enemy. In some circles though, it is still thought that the ability to re many rounds in a short period of time is more effective than a few heavier caliber bullets because aiming shots in combat is dif cult if not impossible. Again, it’s the ‘spray and pray’ theory. It’s the difference between throwing a handful of pebbles versus throwing a rock. You’ll hit more with the pebbles but won’t in ict the damage the rock would. If it’s true the 5.56 mm round is not the best combat round, it would probably be necessary to make expensive modi cations to the M16 so it could re some heavier caliber. Someone told me the other day that my writing is sympathetic to the military. I hope it is. I honor our service people to the depths of my soul. I thank God for them. So I hope this matter is looked into and if a problem really does exist, that it’s corrected as soon as possible. Our troops deserve the very best equipment we can give them. If they’re sent into harm’s way, they need to be armed with the best weapons, the best vehicles and the best body armor our country can supply. How can we do any less for them when they are doing so much for us?
