Kemen L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor 2 COMMENTARY Looking out for your little action heroesT o nominate an employee or family member for USAKA Person of the Week, send submissions to Sandy Miller, Public Affairs of cer, at sandra.miller@smdck.smdc.army.mil or call her at 51404. When someone visits the hospital, Maggie Halliday is one of the rst persons they see. She is most professional and her smile and always friendly manner is comforting to those in need.Recently, I had the privileged opportunity to sit down and visit with a resident family who expressed concern about relying on or calling the police station in certain situations. Their concerns centered on their impression that by doing so subjects them to questioning and possible scrutiny. In the course of our conversation, we covered a subject that all parents of small children can relate to, especially if you have or had a child that had an adventuresome spirit and was never satis ed with their current surroundings. These little “pint-sized action heroes” end up wandering away from the safety and supervision of mom and dad into un-chartered terrain that could nd them in a little more of an adventure than what they bargained for. While our little action hero’s are enjoying the surroundings of their adventure, parents alarmed and frantic, begin the search for their adventurer. Parents, despite having to answer a few questions, I want to remind you that we at Kwajalein Police Department can help and should be your rst call. We have vehicles and can cover a lot of ground faster than on bikes and on foot. Our priority, at that very moment, is a shared priority of simply nding your little “Indiana Jones” and returning them back to the safety of mom and dad. Once recovered and everyone is breathing a sigh of relief, we can worry about the questions. What is great about Kwaj is the sense of community, and that many look after the little adventurers when parents aren’t around. Somebody seems to always have a look out and I appreciate that, even in my own neighborhood. Just a friendly reminder though! U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll regulations put the full responsibility of a child’s accountability squarely on the shoulders of the parents. As your chief of police, I encourage all parents to never take for granted that your children will be OK when they go out to play or that someone else is going to be watching out for them. Make a concerted effort to always know where they are and that someone is there looking out for them. But most importantly, never pause in calling KPD for assistance. We are here to serve you and your little “action heroes”. Until next time, be safe, be well and continue to look out for each other! To submit a letter to the editor: Keep letters to less than 300 words, and keep com ments to the issues. No personal attacks will be printed. Letters must be signed. However, names will be withheld if requested. We will edit for Associated Press style, grammar and punctuation and if you exceed the word limit, space. Limit one letter every 30 days.

Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass Kwajalein re ghter Barnett uses annual leave to help care for young burn victims 4 CA M P O F C O M P A S S I O N CAMP OF COMPASSION JJ KleinReporterichelle Barnett knew one thing for sure when she submitted her annual leave request for this past summer; she was absolutely not going to miss another year of camp. Barnett, a Kwajalein re ghter, has volunteered with the Children’s Burn Camp of North Florida, Inc. since 2001, missing the last two summers because of her move to Kwajalein. Nothing was going to stop her from spending a week with her campers, all of whom are young burn survivors close to her heart. “A lot of these kids wear long pants and long sleeve shirts all year long, in Florida, because people make fun of them, people point at them. They are the center of attention for all the wrong reasons,” said Barnett. “And the only week out of the year they don’t wear long sleeves or long pants is when they’re at camp, because they know nobody is going to ask them why they’re burned, they know nobody cares [about their scars], they just care Counselors and campers from the Children’s Burn Camp of North Florida enjoy time at Shipwreck Island Park in Panama City.

(Photo by Michelle Barnett) about the kid.” The burn camp, also called Camp Amigo, is a week-long camp for young burn survivors’ ages six to 18, bringing them together with re ghters and cementing the special relationship re ghters have with the young lives they save. “Because re ghters are usually the ones saving the burned kids they tend to understand more,” said Barnett. “I don’t know if they understand fully what a burned kid goes through, but they have more of a relationship with them. “The rst camp I went to I was a little scared. I was a little intimidated because I didn’t know really what to expect. And then I got down there and its just kids having fun, that’s all it is,” said Barnett. Camp Amigo campers get to spend a week at the Billy Jo Rish State Park in northern Florida playing games, doing arts and crafts, boating and hanging out at the pool and the beach free from the stigma of their scars. “It’s camp, just like it is for any other ly the ones ecause re ghters are usually the ones ecause re ghters are usually the ones ecause re ghters are usually the ones ecause re ghters are usually the ones ng the burned kids they tend to underng the burned kids they tend to undergtheburnedkidstheytendtounde nd more.

And a lot of them have come along way since the rst time I met them.” Returning year after year, Barnett gets to see the changes that happen when these youngster return for another year at Camp Amigo. “There’s one kid who is 14 or 15 [years old]. The rst year he came to camp he was very shy, never took his shirt off when he went in the pool, and didn’t talk to anybody, basically just hung out. This year he came back and he had slimmed down, and he was talking to everybody and he would take his shirt off in the pool,” said Barnett beaming like a proud mama. “I think a lot of that had to do with knowing that he doesn’t have to worry about us. Nobody at camp is going to look at him and stare at him and de ne him by his scars.” While the intention of the camp is to allow these children to be themselves there is one night when the youngsters attend a support group type session. “They talk about how they feel being burned, the things that they go through, the struggles that they “It’s camp, just like it is for any other kid. It’s such a social taboo to have these great big scars, but they’re such great kids. And a lot of them have come a long way since the rst time I met them.” — Michelle Barnett

Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 August is children’s eye health monthTaking care By Amanda Curtis, RN and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN Kwajalein HospitalAugust is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. Vision problems affect one in 20 preschoolers and one in four school-age children. Some vision problems are easy to miss, therefore, infants should be screened during their regular pediatric appointments and vision testing should be conducted for all children starting at around age three. The conditions a healthcare professional will look for are amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), ptosis (drooping of the upper eyelid), color de ciency (color blindness) and refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism). Amblyopia, or “lazy eye” can affect from 2 to 3 percent of children and is not just a cosmetic condition. Amblyopia may cause permanent vision loss. It is a condition resulting in poor vision in an otherwise healthy eye due to unequal or abnormal visual input while the brain is developing in infancy and childhood. Amblyopia can be successfully treated up to the age of 17 with glasses, drops, vision therapy and/or patching. Detection and correction before the age of two offers the best chance for a cure. Eye injuries are another leading causes of vision loss in children. There are an estimated 42,000 sportsrelated eye injuries each year and the majority of them happen to children. Protect children’s eyes from sports-related injuries by making sure the child wears appropriate protective eyewear when playing sports. Make sure toys and games are appropriate for the child’s age and maturity level. A child’s eyes can be severely injured by toys with sharp, protruding or projectile parts. If there is a family history of vision problems or if your child appears to have any of the above conditions, speak to your healthcare provider promptly about when and how often your child’s eyes should be examined. Vision problems in children can be serious, but if caught in time and treated early, your child’s good vision can be protected.

I think that’s one of the things that really help them a lot. But it’s just that one night; we don’t focus on them being burned because that’s the purpose of the week, to not focus on being burned, to put the focus on just being kids,” said Barnett. Free to every camper, the nonpro t organization will accept and pay for every child they can bring to camp, this year they took 31 campers to Camp Amigo including a 14year-old named Joy. Joy was severely burned in a house re when she went back in to get her younger sister. Joy lost both of her legs below the knees. “I love her. She is an awesome girl,” gushed Barnett. “Most of the time Joy is in a wheelchair, but she walks around on her knees with knee pads. That didn’t stop her from doing anything [at camp].” The organization lives and breathes on monetary donations, donations of camp supplies, fundraising efforts and its volunteers. The majority of the volunteers are re ghters, burn center nurses and adult burn survivors from the Tallahassee, Jacksonville and Gainesville areas of northern Florida. It is particularly signi cant to have adult burn survivors as camp counselors, some who attended Camp Amigo as campers, who can give these children a vision of the kind of life they can lead in spite of their scars. We have a couple of adult burn survivors who are successful and the kids can look at them and say, ‘Here are some great people, they look like me, but look at all they things they have done,’ “ shared Barnett.Camp Amigo was the brainchild of Rusty Roberts, a Tallahassee re ghter. “My driver, Rusty, was very big into camps and burn camps elsewhere. About a month before I was hired they held the rst camp, run by the Tallahassee Fire Department, and Rusty was the head of that,” said Barnett. “And since I was on Rusty’s truck he basically roped me into it.” Six years later Barnett cannot talk about her campers and burn camp without a huge grin on her face. “You go to camp, you meet these kids and you’re part of something wonderful in their life and you can’t help but love them and refer to them as your kids,” said Barnett. She even knows, by name, the campers who could not make it to camp this summer but will de nitely get to go next year. And if Barnett has her way, she will be there to greet them. Arts and crafts are also part of the fun at Camp Amigo Some of the children can’t stay in the sun for long periods of time.
