Kemen See CHIEF, Page 12 COMMENTARYChief answers concerns raised at town hall Resident welcomes survey but questions its validityIn this Chief’s Corner, I would rst like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who was able to attend Kwajalein Police Department’s town hall meeting on June 28. No doubt we were disappointed more could not attend, but we realize everyone’s busy schedule and a lot of residents are off island presently for vacation. For those who could attend, thank you for your support and interest in the law enforcement and security efforts of our Kwajalein community. After a brief opportunity to introduce ourselves, the new leadership of the department, and provide an overview of the various sections that make up KPD, we provided the audience with an opportunity to ask questions. I’ll take this time to highlight some of the cares and concerns expressed. One of our neighbors was interested in the way we as a department train our of cers with regard to dealing with our Marshallese residents and workers. As a private company contracted to support the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, we focus our recruiting to hire only those who already have years of law enforcement or military police experience and training. We are a department that relies heavily (almost half of the department) on our own Marshallese Patrol Of cers, Constables and Access Control Of cers. Training that focuses on being sensitive to our host I see with interest and enthusiasm the notice that there is going to be a survey, soliciting the opinions of Kwajalein Range Services employees. It is long overdue, and I encourage all to take it seriously, spend some time on the answers and truly let those who are asking know your real feelings and suggestions. At the same time, one has to question the sincerity of a survey, asking for employee input, when it is being done at the one time during the year when the greatest number of employees is off-island. If one were interested in getting serious feedback, it might be a better move to conduct the survey in September when fewer people were away on vacation. Just an idle thought. — The Rev. John R. Sheehan, Roman Catholic priest Torrey LandersUSAKA Employee of the Week Torrey Landers was the chairman of the Kwajalympics. This monumental task was all-consuming, required detailed coordination, and a tremendous amount of energy. He did this in addition to his already busy job as the recreation manager for Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities. He worked with off-island counterparts to acquire all new cardio equipment. Landers does whatever it takes to ensure special events, private parties and other requests are professionally satis ed.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, July 12, 2006 3Friday’s demolition blast takes down PBQ Smoke and dust ll the air as the Paci c Bachelor Quarters collapses from the demolition blast Friday afternoon. (Photos by Nell Drumheller) By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAfter weeks of preparation, the actual explosive reduction of the Paci c Bachelor Quarters was a boom, collapse and cloud of dust. At a little past 4 p.m. on Friday the 168 sticks of dynamite exploded sequentially as planned, and the rst oor of the PBQ collapsed, crumpling oors two and three down. The remaining shell of a building looks like a resting dragon, with high ridges where the reinforced stairwells keeping sections raised. “The PBQ came down even better than planned, as not only did the rst story collapse completely, the second and third stories also collapsed in wave-like fashion, leaving only three two-story ridges where the reinforced stairwells were located,” Monte Craven, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Public Works, said. Not only did the building collapse as scheduled, but according to Craven there was no collateral damage to adjacent buildings. Kwajalein Police Department Chief Joe Barnes headed up the team responsible for the evacuation of people from the buildings in the hazard zones. Buildings within a 681-foot area had to be empty before the blast could go. “It went perfectly! With the combined effort of KPD and the engineer Soldiers we were able to get in place the required 681-foot perimeter along with the search and evacuation of all personnel within the perimeter in approximately 1.75 hours,” Barnes said. “Once the area was secured, there were a few incidents of residents attempting to re-enter See PBQ, Page 6

Stipe transferred command to Col. Stevenson Reed in a ceremony at the Davye Davis Multipurpose Room. “This is a bittersweet occasion,” U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands Greta Morris said at the ceremony. “Over the past two years, Col. Stipe and I have worked closely together to ensure that USAKA was able to carry out its strategic mission for the security of the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the entire Paci c region.” The ambassador continued, “There are many other things that USAKA, under Col. Stipe’s leadership, has done and is doing, to strengthen our strategic, close and unique relationship with the RMI and our ability to work together to meet the new demands of our time, to promote our mutual security and to protect the freedoms that both our peoples hold dear. Sam, thank you for your strong leadership and dedication. Thank you for your friendship.” And to Reed, Morris said, “Col. Reed, I hope that you and your family will enjoy your time in Kwajalein and the Marshall Islands as much as I have. Kwajalein is a very special place, and you will be working with wonderful people.” Reed has had more than a year to prepare for his assignment as the USAKA Commander. “I was told by my leadership at Fort Bliss [Texas] that I was selected to Command Kwajalein in April 2005,” he said. He spoke to two previous USAKA Commanders to learn about the mission and activities on Kwajalein, but

I was truly amazed and impressed to see what Kwajalein provided to the joint community.”Reed described his rst impression of Kwajalein, “[This is] a place with tremendous potential. A community that is simply beautiful and picturesque with approximately 3,400 Americans and Marshallese employees and family members on Kwajalein, Meck and Roi-Namur Island. I have seen all of the many new construction projects on the different islands and I have seen facilities that I think take away from the beauty the islands have to offer. I would like to build some timelines and start removing those facilities.”Though on the island for a short time, Reed has considered USAKA’s role within the bigger Army picture. “I see the mission of Ballistic Missile Defense Testing as the primary mission for intercontinental ballistic missile testing at Kwajalein, but I also see the need to incorporate more new

Safety is always a concern, and Billy Traweek, USAKA Range Safety, said that the project was a safety success. “I am only aware of one soldier who chipped a tooth from a piece of ying concrete while performing mechanical demolition prior to the explosive demolition,” Traweek said. However, the debris is not gone and so the community should be aware of possible safety issues during its removal. “We want to remind the community the PBQ demolition area is still hazardous to personnel, and please do not approach the site,” Traweek said. The remainder of the debris should be removed by Aug. 24, according to Craven. Barnes said that good lessons were learned from this demolition project. “Always plan for the unexpected! We, like many, anticipated things to mirror the test demo of the day before. KPD was forced to adjust to extended periods of time and adjust our forces to compensate for the time adjustments. Despite those, KPD performed exceptionally well to adapt and overcome in all phases of this event.” Craven, Barnes and Traweek offered thanks to the community for its cooperation during the explosive reduction which disrupted day-to-day business Thursday and Friday. “Special thanks from the chief to all of cers in the department who were part of the team. It was a long, hot, trying day [Friday], but because of their efforts this extraordinary event on Kwaj went off with no injuries. Special thanks to Capt. Moses Moreno, KPD deputy chief and Lt. A.J. Gilbert. They truly were the engine that ran the train. Great job,” Barnes said.Temporary hospital and emergency facilities were set up in the elementary school. Meal card holders couldn't eat at CafŽ Paci c due to the demolition. They were treated to a steak barbecue at Emon Beach Thursday evening. The PBQ crumbles and attens out after the blast on Friday afternoon.

Health AlertThere have been approximately 24 documented or presumed cases of typhoid in Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands since March. Representatives of the World Health Organization and the U.S. Center for Disease Control are investigating the outbreak in Majuro to better understand the source. Typhoid is spread by eating or drinking contaminated food or water. The current cluster of cases has not been clearly linked to a single source of contamination. The illness is not spread person to person. Individuals who are careful to select sanitary sources of food and drink can prevent infection. It is a good prompt to review the fact that foodand water-borne illness are real health concerns to travelers in Micronesia and Southeast Asia. The food and water at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll facilities are reliably, con dently safe but outside the zone of Kwajalein sanitation lurks potential exposure to illnesses that range from inconvenience (traveler’s diarrhea) to fatal (typhoid and cholera). For more information, contact the hospital.

That is not a practice I endorse or condone. The regulations have been written for the safety and welfare of all, and will be enforced equitably regardless of the person in violation of those regulations. My encouragement and reminder to all is, call me at 54095 if you witness or are concerned about enforcement practices. I promise that I will give it the attention it demands. Finally, as a friendly tip of the week, I would like to highlight a potential problem: Walking around the island with an open container of alcohol in residential areas. I ask that if you drink, drink responsibly and in compliance with the regulations. I can tell you rst hand, our KPD of cers do not enjoy having to end an evening of celebration with citations or apprehensions. It ruins a perfectly good celebration and I would ask, personally, that you not put our of cers in that position. Take care, be safe, and look out for your neighbor! foreign-launch and space operations into our mission based upon our location and the current demands. We also want to continue working to support more missile testing for the Army, but other DOD [Department of Defense] agencies as well,” he said.And how does Reed think the mission will change in the next ve years? “The reduction of our footprint is going to happen and that action is already in the planning phase. I see the ber optic cable from Kwajalein to Guam back to the mainland making all the difference and opening new opportunities for the mission. I see more agencies coming back to Kwajalein after the 2008 period when the cable is in place and the capabilities are marketed and demonstrated to the customers.” Reed, a veteran of 23 years in the U.S. Army, will spend the next two years on Kwajalein as an unaccompanied commander. His wife, Yvonne, will remain in El Paso, Texas. “I guess what should be known by those who ask [why his wife is not accompanying him] is the fact that for 22 years of marriage, my spouse has followed and supported my career. Initially, she sacri ced not completing her master’s degree until last month to support my career and has been involved with the Family Readiness Group at all levels. She has truly been supportive for 22 out of my 23 years career,” he said. “However, we now have two children in college which is expensive, and with the con ict of interest always being a consideration for us, we decided that her working in her eld of drug and alcohol counseling and being close to the children in El Paso was essential for our family. Although, it was a family decision, I did discuss this issue with my leadership and they understood our rationale,” he added. Reed said that while the family separation will be tough, he doesn’t think it will adversely affect his abilities to command USAKA. “I now have two families which I will have to be attentive to. Kwajalein Atoll has become the rst family and the Reeds are now the second. I will continue to have events like our annual Christmas tree lighting ceremonies or our New Years reception, but after those events, I will then visit my second family in El Paso. I have been in units that did not have a rst lady of that unit. I plan to ask for assistance from the leadership in the community and request their assistance with different events. “Life is a continuous learning cycle. I am sure I will learn a lot from the people who live and work on Kwajalein Atoll as well as the testing and evaluation process which is conducted on the island. I am also sure I will learn how to manage this small city with an international airport and harbor operations, schools, typical power and other facilities,” the new commander said.At the ceremony Reed said, “I will strive to become part of your team and over the next 24 months support the mission, personnel and activities of these islands.”Reed is a 1982 graduate of Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. He also has a Master of Education from the University of South Carolina. His most recent assignment was as the director for the Air Defense Artillery Test Directorate, U.S. Army Operational Test Command, Fort Bliss, Texas.
