Ebeye resident would like more community prideBy Agnes JibkeWhat is a community? According to the Random House Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, a community is “a social group of any size whose members reside in a speci c locality, share government, and often have a common cultural historical heritage.” In asking this question I would like each of us to think about our community, our home, beliefs and society. Since it’s a new year, a time for closing and opening new chapters in each of our lives, it wouldn’t hurt to unselfishly form a new year’s resolution not for ourselves, but for our community as a whole. I know there is much to be done within our home (Ebeye), but if we were to take tiny baby steps and attend to it with care and con dence, things will gradually change. So please let’s make a difference, mok. Have you noticed and compared Ebeye’s surroundings to Kwaj? I have, and although we are a long way from beautifying our home, we can do it little by little. First, we need to act like responsible citizens and conduct ourselves using the same ethical behavior and actions on Ebeye as we do here on Kwaj. I’ve asked myself time and time again ‘why is it that we know not to litter on Kwaj and yet we do it on Ebeye (same rules apply)?’ Is it because law enforcement is weak on Ebeye? Is it because there aren’t as many trash bins around? Or is because you don’t really care? Whatever your reasoning is, it has to be adjusted. Like I said, we need to act as a community in attending to our home and its surroundings. Just thought I would point out the littering problem to you, my fellow neighbors and workers, to think about.

The great naval battle of Midway had been won by the Americans and the campaigns of Papua, Guadalcanal and New Guinea had raged in the Southwest Paci c. The Imperial Japanese navy and Japanese merchant ships roamed the Central Paci c at will. Japanese garrisons throughout Micronesia built airstrips, submarine bases and prepared defenses. ci c would threaten American supply lines and communications with air and submarine attacks. American war planners decided that the main push to the Japanese home islands would go through the Gilberts, the Marshalls, the Marianas and the Carolines. The Japanese bases had to be eliminated. In late 1943, Admiral Chester Nimitz proposed taking an atoll that was deep within the perimeter of the Japanese held islands in Micronesia. Most of his of cers thought it was too risky to go so deep in Japanese territory. But Nimitz wanted that atoll. It had the worldÂ’s largest lagoon and would make a great staging base for future operations. The atoll that Nimitz wanted to take was Kwajalein. The Japanese expected attack in the Marshalls and had heavily forti ed all of their bases at Wotje, Maloelap, Mili, Jaluit, Kwajalein, Roi and Namur. The U.S. 7th Infantry Division and the Marine 4th Division would face almost 10,000 Japanese soldiers and sailors who had vowed to die for their emperor and their country.

Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 operation flintlock from page 3When U.S. Soldiers and Marines hit the beaches of Kwajalein, Roi and Namur, they were backed by a mas sive naval and air bom bard ment de signed to knock out Jap a nese forti ca tions. Near Roi and Namur, Navy ships laid a non-stop barrage of 2,655 tons of am mu ni tion. A regiment of 75 mm and 105 mm howitzers bom bard ed the defensive The landings Navy ships at Kwajalein red some 7,000 shells into the island de fens es on the morn ing of Feb. 1. This was in addition to the heavy bom bard ment days before the attack. Navy aircraft ew 96 sorties over Kwajalein before H-Hour. Forty-eight 105 mm howitzers, along with several 155 mm howit zers, bombarded Kwajalein from near by Carlson Island, ring more than 29,000 shells. Marines of the Fourth Marine Division land on Roi to light resistance.Marines landed on Roi and Namur beaches at 11 a.m. on Jan. 31, which was timed to coincide with the landing at Kwajalein. They faced rel a tive ly light resistance on Roi but much stron ger de fens es on Namur.At Kwajalein, almost 1,200 Soldiers landed on the west end of the island with out a casualty. Units ad vanced 1,800 yards up the island before the end of the day with only 17 dead and 46 wound ed.

The surviving Japanese had recovered from the heavy bom bard ments and began to organize a defense along the front lines using mortars and artillery. The Japanese also conducted erce late night banzai coun ter at tacks. The ghting over the next three days quick ly deteriorated into small unit actions, as Amer i can squads and teams fought snipers as well as overcoming heavily defend ed bun kers and buildings. As troops neared what is now ‘downtown,’ they faced a whole complex of Japanese bunkers, machine gun nests and ‘spider’ holes, each ercely defended. On day three, shortly after sun set, Jap a nese made one last desperate banzai charge at American lines near what is now 6th Street. All the attackers were killed. By the fourth day, U.S. troops ad vanc ing oceanside reached Bunker Hill, which was the end of the island at the time. At that point, organized resistance ceased, and a day of mop-up op er a tions be gan. When Roi fell, the Japanese moved back to well-prepared Namur. There, the ghting took a tragic turn as Marines mistakenly de stroyed a block house used as a storage building lled with tor pe do war heads and aerial bombs. The explosion killed Japanese and Americans alike and lled the sky with towering, thick black smoke. The Marines’ 2nd Bat tal ion suffered more than half of its casualties in the single ex plo sion. Four Marines would receive Medals of Honor for their actions in the 24 hours of ghting on the two islands. the rear for interrogation. to cover fellow Marines as they advance on Namur.

Most Sol diers car ried ri es with bay o nets and gre nades, but strong de fensive po si tions of ten called for satchel charges or other heavy demolition charges and ame throwers. Most of the Central Paci c Campaign took place in Micronesia, an area of the globe larger than the continental United States, where a multitude of islands lie scattered about a vast expanse of ocean. Clustered into four major groups, these Paci c islands have a landmass of about 1,200 square miles, an area somewhat larger than the state of Rhode Island. The most easterly of the four island groups are the Gilberts, low-lying coral atolls, straddling the equator just west of the international date line. North and west of the Gilberts are the Marshall Islands, a double chain of atolls, reefs, and islets, most of which rise only a few feet above sea level. Stretching almost due west from the Marshalls are the 550 tiny islands of the Caroline group. The Marianas lie just north of the Carolines in a 400-mile north-south chain. Strategically located across the main sea lines of communications between the United States and the Philippines, the islands of Micronesia played a vital role in Japanese war plans.War in the central Pacific Marines on Namur check for snipers blockhouses and bunkers.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2007 9The fallen In the campaign for Kwajalein Atoll, U.S. forces lost less than one percent of their forces in ca su al ties, a marvel of military his to ry. However, one percent casualties still translates into men killed in action. On Kwajalein, the 7th Infantry miss ing in action. Estimates are the Japanese lost 4,938 dead with 206 more taken pris on er, in clud ing 127 Koreans. On Roi and Namur is lands, 190 Ma rines died. The en e my lost 3,472 dead along with 51 pris on ers of war and 40 Ko re an la bor ers. Of the Marines killed, three received Medals of Honor, in clud ing 1st Lt. John V. Power, Pfc. Ri ch ard B. Ander son and Lt. Col. Aquilla “Jimmie” Dyess. Both Power and Dyess were killed lead ing attacks on enemy positions. Dyess was killed leading an attack on Bunker Hill. re a salute over the graves of fellow Marines. Victory The victory at Kwajalein Atoll could hardly have been more com plete. The Amer i can vic to ry marked the rst time U.S. troops had tak en pre-war Japa nese ter ri to ry and it established another key Amer i can base in the Cen tral Pa ci c.This pres ence helped lead to the iso la tion of the Bismarks, Solomons and New Guinea. Fur ther more, many Japanese po si tions were bypassed as a result of the success at Kwajalein Atoll, allowing U.S. forces to concen trate on other targets including the successful as saults on the Phil ip pines and Marianas. The battles took advantage of the terrible lessons learned in the Tarawa invasion, and those lessons were used to minimize American casualties. One can open up any num ber of books at any li brary and see com bat pho tos. The photos of the battles of Kwajalein and Roi-Namur depict more than mere combat. These are photos of the men who fought on the very land where we live, work and play. Some lived through the war. Some survived, but died on other islands. Many died on this ground. What those men did and endured on these islands should always be honored and remembered. Marines and Soldiers display captured Japanese ags, swords, uniforms and other souvenirs taken during and after the battles on Kwajalein, Roi and Namur.

HEAVY EQUIPMENT operations are planned at the Roi-Namur Small Boat Marina piers to remove accumulated ll material (sand/rubble). Based on available data, the dino agellate, gambierdiscus toxicus, is known to exist in sediment material around USAKA. This dino agellate carries the toxin that produces ciguatera, and the activity at the piers could intensify the potential for ciguatera contamination of sh stocks. Areas where dredging and/or lling activities are ongoing or have recently occurred should always be avoided for sh harvesting. Please avoid the Roi-Namur Small Boat Marina area for shing and subsequent sh consumption until March 1.

Sunrise/set Moonrise/set High tide Low tide By Tamara WardHourglass contributorWith soccer season in full swing, after school activities for the winter season are keeping children and their parents on Kwajalein busy. High school students recently took semester exams and had their Winter Ball. Elementary school youngsters are proving to be just as busy. Thursday evening marked a ‘Kwaj Kid’ milestone for 5th graders at George Seitz Elementary School. The Beginning Band Premiere Concert, lasting 30 minutes, gave the students the chance to showcase the results of their hard work from the past few months. Excitement was more than obvious on the faces of the audience as the children walked on the multipurpose room stage dressed in their Sunday best. The beginner musicians didn’t disappoint as they performed exceptionally for their family and friends. Proud fathers Glenn Hibberts and Jim Cossey had tripods in place to record the event.Led by Dick Shields, who also conducts the junior/senior high band, parents and friends were treated to familiar tunes such as Hot Cross Buns This Old Man Old McDonald Had a Farm Kum Ba Yah as well as a delightful tuba solo of the Mexican Hat Dance In honor of Thursday being bingo night, the students ended their concert with none other than B-i-n-g-o.The instruments played included utes, trombones, clarinets, trumpets, the oboe, and the tuba. Selections were played using all instruments, but one of the highlights of the concert included instrument solos such as the trumpet rendition of Symphony No. 9, and the ute rendition of Lullaby. Shields thanked parents for their patience during the time he knew the young musicians had to practice playing their instruments at home. He then encouraged the audience to continue supporting band events such as the Community Band concert on Feb. 15, featuring adults on Kwaj, and the next 5th grade student concert in May.
