There was a movie out several years ago entitled The Candidate Robert Redford stars in the movie as a man running for a high federal government of ce. He’s backed by very powerful interests and has the best campaign manager and staff that money can buy. The candidate and every step of the campaign are tightly controlled by the men around him. The people who back him and the people who control him are the only ones who know he isn’t the brightest bulb in the xture. At the end of the movie, in spite of ubs and messing up, the candidate gets elected. When told he’s won the election, he gets a wondering look on his face and asks the campaign manager, “Now, what do we do?” I wonder how many newly-elected congressmen and senators, after a joyous night of celebrating their victories on election night, woke up the next morning and said, “Oh, oh.” The campaigning is over. It’s time to make good on all the promises they made. The voters are sending them to Washington, D.C. to lead. Now let’s see if they can do it. To any members of the ‘new’ congress who might be asking themselves what do they do now, I’d like to humbly offer some tidbits of advice. Is lining little girls up against the blackboard in their school and executing them forgivable? What about “men of the cloth” disgracing their positions of honor and respect and molesting their altar boys? Can you forgive that? What about intolerance? Is that forgivable? I respectfully disagree with the letter in the last edition of The Hourglass Religion is a personal choice and that letter reeks of intolerance, something the Bible strongly Here’s what Americans don’t want We don’t want arrogant superiority from you. We don’t want you to waste valuable time on partisan hearings, investigations and subpoenas, which will destroy any small shred of unity discourages. Didn’t Jesus tell the world to love their neighbor? Doesn’t the Bible say something about treating people like you want to be treated? Whether Jesus was the son of God or just a really decent guy that thought the world would be a nicer place if we all practiced a bit of tolerance doesn’t matter.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2006 3The American Legion Post 44 ri e squad prepares to re a 21-gun salute at the Veterans Day ceremony held at Island Memorial Chapel on Saturday. (Photo by Sandy Miller)Kwajalein community pays tribute to all who have servedAmerica's veterans honored in Saturday ceremony "Love of country and devotion to duty, they are the universal ties that join all veterans together. Men and women from every ethnic heritage and religion."— Col. Stevenson Reed, commander, U.S. Army Kwajalein AtollBy J.J. KleinReporter“What does it take to be a veteran,” asked the Rev. Rick Funk, guest speaker at the Veterans Day ceremony on Saturday. An appropriate question for Kwajalein community members to consider as they congregated at the Island Memorial Chapel to commemorate and say thank you to servicemembers, living and dead. The playing of Reveille by Kwajalein High School junior Justin DeCoster signaled the beginning of the ceremony as the Kwajalein Police Department Color Guard posted the U.S. and Republic of the Marshall Islands ags. The Kwajalein Junior and Senior High School Band played the National Anthems followed by the invocation from the Rev. John Sheehan, Roman Catholic priest. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll /Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Stevenson Reed welcomed the audience and then departed from the ceremony program to honor local veterans by asking them to stand and be recognized if they served in con icts beginning with the Korean War through the Global War on Terror. Approximately 20 veterans and active duty servicemembers stood up. Reed asked the audience to join him in giving the standing veterans a round of applause for their service to the United States. “Love of country and devotion to duty, they are the universal ties that join all veterans together,” said Reed, “men and women from every ethnic heritage and religion.” “It is a unique privilege that we have here on Kwajalein that our kids can see people who are preparing to serve in our Armed Forces, that they know people who are serving in our Armed Forces and they know people who have served in our Armed Forces,” Funk said as he addressed the audience, “so that they can be reminded that the freedom that we enjoy here was bought at the price of their [the veterans] commitment and service.” Funk encouraged the youth of the island to speak with the local veterans and ask them questions about serving in the military. One question, the question of what it takes to be a veteran, Funk chose to answer in his remarks. Veterans start out with hope and excitement to be a part of something bigger than themselves, remarked Funk, joining for a variety of reasons such as duty to country or nancing their education. But these same men and women “end the day wearing a common uniform, walking the walk, talking the talk and with much shorter hair.” This eagerness to serve in time will lead to a new phase. “Everyone who becomes a veteran must pass through this phase of fear,” Funk said. It is not a cowardly fear, explained Funk, but an honest, rational, heartfelt fear of failure, fear of separation from family and loved ones, fear of injury, and a fear of death.The stronger phase of resolve is an answer to the fear. “The phase that says, ‘Despite this fear I am going to get the job done. I am going to complete this task,’” said Funk. “These veterans have made a decision of resolve.“These are decisions of courage, decisions of character, decisions of conviction,” continued Funk. “Decisions that calculate the risks and said, ‘Yes, it’s worth it.’ And these are the choices that can change a country or the course of history. This is where veterans come from.” To complete the transformation from civilian to veteran there is a nal phase that requires the participation of a grateful nation. “This last step is our responsibility,” said Funk. “We pay that debt of gratitude to those who have served and made these decisions on our behalf; we say to them thank you.” After Funk’s remarks, members of Kwajalein Girl Scout Troop Number Four handed off three wreaths, commemorating the service of fallen military men and women, to Kwajalein Range Services president John Pickler, American Legion Post 44 representative Doug Hepler and American Legion Post 44 Auxiliary representative Amy LaCost. The laying of the wreaths by the three Kwajalein community members symbolized the commitment of the nation to never forget those who lost their lives in service to this country. The Kwajalein Pipes and Drums played Amazing Grace followed by a 21-gun salute by the American Legion ri e squad. High School senior Michael Taylor closed the ceremony with the playing of Taps

Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Japanese visitors honor relatives killed in World War II at bereavement ceremonyBy J.J. KleinReporter A makeshift altar, lovingly assembled with family photographs, two bottles of sake, a carton of cigarettes, oranges and more, stood at the base of the memorial at the Japanese Cemetery on Kwajalein a week ago. Today the memorial is bare, the gifts and offerings have been removed, all that is left are the spirits of the Japanese servicemen who died on Kwajalein during World War II. Each year, since 1975, members of the Marshall Islands Bereaved Families Association come from Japanese cities and towns to Kwajalein and Roi-Namur to pay tribute to and pray for their loved ones who lost their lives in the bombardment of Kwajalein in 1944. It is important for these families to “connect with the place, to commune with the spirits of the people who died here whose bones still rest in the soil or in the bottom of the lagoon,” said Greg Dvorak, Australian National University graduate student, former ‘Kwaj Kid’ and interpreter for the group. “For them it is an amazing experience to get that sense of closure, to heal and to Sumiko Suehiro honors her father who was killed on Kwajalein at the bereavement ceremony on Wednesday. H o n o r i n g Honoring f a m i l y family have that recognized extraordinarily by the U.S. Army, by nature of the fact that this is a U.S. military base.” U.S. Army Kwajalein/Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Stevenson Reed greeted the association and honored the delegation by participating with the families in the ceremony. “We share in this solemn day,” said Reed. “We also lost many lives and even now, as allies, this special ceremony brings us together. They [the dead] are part of our family. I want to thank you for taking the time to come back and not forget those who lost their lives here.” Of the members who visited Kwajalein last week, some "We share in this solemn day. We also lost many lives and even now, as allies, this special ceremony brings us together. They [the dead] are part of our family. I want to thank you for taking the time to come back and not forget those who lost their lives here."— Col. Stevenson Reed, commander, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2006 5 came solo, some came with family members. Some have made this pilgrimage every year since 1975, and for some this was their rst visit to the cemetery. For all who made the journey it was an emotional experience. A frail Mikisaburo Iwase made this trip to Kwajalein for the rst time and quite possibly his last. Iwase is dying of throat cancer and came to mourn his older brother, Fujimatsu Iwase, who died on Kwajalein. The 22-year-old soldier would have been in the second wave of soldiers transferred from the Japanese front in Manchuria and sent to reinforce the island with additional soldiers toward the end of 1943, said Dvorak. “He came straight from Manchuria, that would have meant that he had no knowledge of what it would have been like in the Paci c,” said Dvorak, who is interviewing these families for his PhD. Only recently did the Iwase family nd out Fujimatsu died on Kwajalein; before that they believed he died in Manchuria. Barely able to speak because his voice box had been removed, Iwase told the interpreter he was happy that the memory of his brother was kept alive, commenting on the request by Leslie Mead, Kwajalein Range Services Environmental scientist/archaeologist and Dvorak for photographs. He was amazed that the Japanese had ventured to a place so far away from Japan. Iwase also marveled that a seemingly peaceful island was the site of this horrible, bloody battle eld in which one palm tree was left standing. Iwase was able to get a sense of how his brother died after visiting the Cultural Resources facility and talking with Mead. This was the rst time in the 31 years since the bereavement association has been allowed on Kwajalein that it was able to visit the lab, look at artifacts and learn about the Kwajalein bombardment from a Kwajalein authority. Families of the bereavement association were treated to another rst when they were invited to meet Marshallese citizens and Kwajalein residents with Japanese heritage at a dinner co-hosted by the bereavement association and the Marshallese Cultural Club at Emon Beach. The Japanese families were introduced to special guest Okana plant a tree donated by Col. Stevenson Reed in honor of the deceased family members.

Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 JAPANESE, from Page 5Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sends medical supplies to Ebeye Health CenterAto Langkio, an elderly Marshallese man the same age as many of the members of the association. As a boy, Langkio attended a Japanese school on Kwajalein where he learned the language and a few Japanese songs. During the dinner the, Japanese families entertained the guests with songs; ensconced in the group were Langkio and 40-year Kwajalein resident Jimmy Matsunaga singing in Japanese the songs that bubbled up from memories of a long time ago. The spirit of camaraderie was evident in the shared laughter that evening. Remember the spirits of the dead at the Japanese Cemetery? Not only do the visiting families believe that the spirits of their loved ones are present on Kwajalein, but they also believe their ancestors are protecting them and sending them messages, said Dvorak. Hours before the delegation was set to y home, the members checked their luggage at the airport and then walked over to the Marshallese Cultural Center. Flying overhead and following them from one building to the next were a ock of white birds. After spending the morning looking at the exhibits at the Cultural Center, the families headed back to the airport, again accompanied with the ock of white birds, perhaps a sign that their loved ones are always with them.By J.J. KleinReporterIn February, Ebeye Hospital Administrator Tommy Milne wrote a letter requesting assistance from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On Oct. 23 the answer arrived in a 40-foot shipping container brimming with medical supplies for the Leiroij Kitlang Memorial Health Center on Ebeye. The donated supplies were formally handed over in a ceremony held in the hospital courtyard on Friday attended by Milne, Irene Paul, Republic of the Marshall Islands Kwajalein Atoll assistant secretary of health, Bill Davis, LDS Micronesia-Guam Service Center manager, and Dave Hamill, LDS Kwajalein District president. The shipment, valued at more than $100,000, consisted of 48 wheelchairs, 1,680 hygiene kits, 1,152 newborn kits, crutches, syringes and needles, hospital gowns, scrubs, surgical masks, intravenous catheters and many other medical supplies needed at the hospital. Medical supplies, hygiene and newborn kits will be distributed free to patients admitted to the hospital as part of the agreement between the LDS church and the hospital. Patients will not be charged, Davis said, because these are donated supplies used only to bene t the patient. “The church has a very large humanitarian program to assist those in need,” said Davis. “These programs help children and families of all nationalities and religions by relieving suffering, helping people help themselves, and providing opportunities for service.” Currently the majority of LDS humanitarian donations are distributed to areas devastated by the 2004 tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and Southeast Asia, “so we are very fortunate that we could donate to this area,” said Davis. The Kwajalein LDS congregation assisted in the coordination and transfer of this shipment of donated goods from Salt Lake City. “These shipments are always very timely,” said Milne. “We received a shipment three years ago right at the end of our budget year, and it helped supplement our depleted supplies.” To date the LDS church has donated three shipments in three years to the Ebeye hospital. Dr. Jill Horner, a physician with the Kwajalein Hospital can attest to the timeliness of this current donation. “I was working in the Kwajalein emergency room when I saw an old man with a badly fractured hip. He would never walk again. He knew it, we knew it. He and his wife begged for a wheelchair,” said Horner. “We had no wheelchair to give him, and I knew it was his death sentence. “As is common on Ebeye, his house has no indoor plumbing, which means someone has to carry him to the ocean for bathing,” continued Horner. “The next week the donation from LDS arrived. He was the rst on the list to receive a wheelchair.” Under the newly established protocol by the Ebeye hospital, patients with priority will receive wheelchairs and crutches. This would include amputees, physical therapy patients and the elderly who are no longer mobile, said Milne. “A lot of the wheelchairs are needed because we don’t have any way to repair the chairs; we don’t have the tires or replacement parts,” Milne said. “We’ll replace the old wheelchairs with the new donated chairs and keep the old ones for parts.” The physical therapy department received a much needed supply of crutches, casting materials, splints, braces and compression stockings. “It’s very expensive to buy these supplies,” said Sheryll Ramos, physical therapist. “This donation saved us a lot of money.” Answering a call for help "I was working in the Kwajalein emergency room when I saw an old man with a badly fractured hip. He would never walk again. He knew it, we knew it. He and his wife begged for a wheelchair. We had no wheelchair to give him, and I knew it was his death sentence."— Dr. Jill Horner, Kwajalein Hospital physician

We don’t want to hear of any more corruption, pork barrel spending, earmarks, no-bid contracts, government waste and inappropriate behavior toward children. We don’t want you to base policy on the wishes of the lunatic right wing fringe who seem to practice intolerance, mean-spiritness and are capable of condemning and viciously attacking, for example, a man who suffers from a terrible disease or who are capable of calling 9/11 widows ‘harpies’ and saying their dead husbands might have divorced them had they not been killed in the World Tade Center. On the ip-side, we don’t want you to base policy on the lunatic left wing fringe who blame America for all the world’s ills and would like to see the moral ber and culture of the country destroyed. We don’t want you to kiss up to special interests, the lobbyists and the money men. Is any of this getting through? Okay, enough of what we don’t want. Now, here’s what we want. First and most important of all, we want a solution to Iraq which will get our brave men and women in the Armed Forces out of harm’s way without making it a political game. And, if you decide to keep troops there, you better be able to prove to us that it’s worth it. But, whatever plan or solution you come up with, we want it to be worthy of the sacri ces of those who have died and those who have suffered horrible injury in that terrible place. We want you to be worthy of them We want scal responsibility and a balanced federal budget. We want the illegal immigration problem brought under control and our borders secured. We want something done about the out-of-control healthcare system and the obscenely rising costs of healthcare insurance. We want the minimum wage raised to a decent living standard and American jobs safeguarded. We want Social Security and Medicare ensured for future retirees, and, oh yeah, we want to be able to trust you. It shouldn’t be too much of a problem, right? The American people are patient and forgiving most of the time, but, my nal piece of advice would be this . don’t get too comfortable in your plush surroundings in the nation’s capital because the next election is never very far away. If you haven’t solved the problems facing this country in a uni ed manner, or at least made signi cant progress toward solving them, then when the next election is over, we just might have a brand new crop of congressmen asking themselves, “What do we do now?” tolerance. The core of most religions is tolerance. Being tolerant of other religions, other choices, other lifestyles is what gets you into a good afterlife, if you believe in one. There are different “rules” for different religions, but tolerance and being nice to people is what gets you there. It is absolutely possible to stand rm in your convictions and still be tolerant. Just because I don’t believe that Jesus is the son of God and can save the world and I don’t think that saying so will get me into Heaven doesn’t mean I’m not a good person and I will spend eternity in a bad place. It just means I made a different personal choice. Unforgivable? Only in the minds of the intolerant.
