Kemem2 COMMENTARYCORRECTION: In Saturday’s issue of The Hourglass, it was stated that Alison Bush made the rst hole-in-one at Holmberg Fairways Golf Course. It was the rst hole-in-one in 2007, but not the rst hole-in-one in the history of the golf course. The Houglass regrets any misunderstanding. L e t t e r s t o t h e e d i t o r Letters to the editor It’s you who deserve my heartfelt thanksAmerican Legion appreciates column This letter is in response to Dan Adler’s commentary, Bad Blast from Bad Pas t in the Feb. 7 issue of The Hourglass Speaking for the veterans of the American Legion Post 44, thanks for echoing our feelings and opinions regarding the ongoing Global War on Terror. You eloquently and succinctly expressed our hopes, fears and frustrations, and as patriots, we salute you. We owe you one, my friend. In gratitude, — Doug Hepler, commander, American Legion Post 44Our thanks to the community for its participation in the Kwajalein Golf Association’s Sadie Hawkins Golf Tournament Monday. Many were instrumental in making this event happen in a very short planning period. Special thanks to Phyllis Mitchell for her dedication to excellence and Bob Butz and his golf course crew. Those who worked tirelessly to create this day were Nancy Nast, Jimmy Feldspaugh, Joi Whipple, John Labee and Larry Cavender. Joi Whipple, Linda Schuett, Annette Barnhill and Mike Spurlock provided great sides for lunch. A very special thanks to Trudy Butler and Roy Howard for stepping up at the very last second to, literally, save my pork butt. And thanks to John Brown and Fred McNickle for doing their very best to be part of the solution. I hope all had as great a day as I did. The stimie game was a wonderful way to end the day! You guys rock.— Sheri Howard Sadie Hawkins Tournament chairThanks for making Sadie Hawkins successToday, I am truly humbled by the letter from Doug Hepler that appears on this page. Hepler says that on behalf of the American Legion Post 44, he thanks me for expressing certain concerns and opinions that many veterans seem to share. But it is I who thank the men and women of American Legion Post 44 and all the veterans of all American Legion Posts. I thank each veteran, reservist and active duty servicemember whereever they are serving. I thank those who fought at the Frozen Chosen, Pork Chop Hill and so many unnamed battles and places in Korea. I thank the men and women who endured the heat, the rice paddies and the hell of southeast Asia. I thank those who fought at Khe Sanh, the Battle of Hue, the Tet Offensive and the thousands of ‘search and destroy’ missions in the miserable jungles of Vietnam. I thank the Navy and Air Force iers who spent years of their lives in prison camps enduring unspeakable conditions, but never broke faith with each other or their country. I thank the men and women who fought the Cold War by standing guard at the Berlin Wall, at the Korean DMZ and a thousand other thankless, miserable places. I thank those who keep lonely vigil on the sea in submarines and surface ships. I thank the air crews who stand ready to defend our skies from attack at a moment’s notice. I honor the young men and women today who see in their country something greater than themselves and want to serve and protect it. I honor the men and women who are in harm’s way in Afghanistan and Iraq. Almighty God, please bless them all and keep them in your loving arms. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said in awe of American Soldiers’ heroism during World War II, “Where do we get such men?” I thank God for giving us American men and women of all religions, races and heritages who are willing to step forward and sacri ce for their country, their principles, and the freedoms that are so precious to them. So Doug, I very, very humbly thank you for your letter. It means a great deal to me. But it is you, my friend, and all the others like you who deserve my thanks and the thanks of all Americans. Because without men and women like you who were willing to defend my rights and freedom, I wouldn’t be able to express my concerns and opinions. As Ronald Reagan said, “We are the land of the free only because we are the land of the brave.” Thank you all.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007 3 Fiber optics offer new capability at Reagan Test Site Mission operations, job positions will relocate to Huntsville, Ala. By Paula Y. TaylorSMDC/ARSTRATA new undersea ber optic cable from Kwajalein to Guam and with a direct link to the United States will enable United States Army Kwajalein Atoll, Reagan Test Site, or USAKA/ RTS, to distribute mission operations and personnel positions back to Huntsville, Ala. Located in the Republic of Marshall Islands, USAKA/RTS principal mission areas are primarily ballistic missile defense testing and space surveillance operations. The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Strategic Command is the Army’s proponent for space and missile defense and is responsible for the operation of Reagan Test Site and other facilities located at Kwajalein Atoll. Presently, the supporting contracted non-military workforce is comprised of approximately 2,000 employees and family members. More than 1,000 of the USAKA workforce are Marshallese citizens who commute three miles by ferry from the intra-atoll island of Ebeye to Kwajalein, daily. In an interview for The Kwajalein Hourglass Col. Beverly Stipe, the former USAKA commander, said the command took a substantial budget cut in 2004. An independent assessment team was formed to help develop initiatives to cut costs without negatively impacting current missions at RTS. The team determined that the way ahead rests in the technology and the proven bene ts of ber optics, according to Stipe. Equipment installed at the test site includes various tracking radars, stationary and mobile telemetry, optical recording equipment and a secure intra-atoll ber optic data network via submarine ber optic cables. The Reagan Test Site also serves as a space launch complex and a tracking station for manned space flight and NASA research projects. Fiber optics (optical fibers) are long, thin strands of very pure glass about the diameter of a human hair. They are arranged in bundles called optical cables and used to transmit light signals over long distances. Optical fiber systems have many advantages over satellite-based communication systems—the most noteworthy of which is its wide bandwidth and low data latency. The key advantages of long haul undersea fiber over geosynchronous satellite is the signi cantly higher bandwidth (more data) and low data latency (shorter path/ near instantaneous). More bandwidth will allow for massive amounts of mission data required for running missions in the new operations center in Huntsville. The low data latency advantage is due to the shorter terrestrial ber path versus the long satellite path to a satellite 93,000 miles in space. Near instantaneous data is essential for command and control of ight test missions as well as control of remote range sensors and the space surveillance mission. In addition, ber is not affected by atmospherics and is more secure. Emerging technologies promise even greater distances in the future. The success of the relocation initiative to Huntsville involves using the concept of distributed operations—a remote capability that enables authorized, geographically dispersed users to gain secure access to a common set of data les. USAKA/RTS is implementing distributed operations in three phases:  Phase 1: Kwajalein Modernization and remoting: The goal of this successfully completed phase was to provide the enabling architecture via ber for future distributing operations to the mainland. During this phase, a ber-optic network was installed locally throughout the command’s key range operations, which included establishing remote operations capability from Roi-Namur to Kwajalein. • Phase 2: Demonstrate distributed operations in Huntsville: During this current phase, the Army will attain ber optic connectivity from Kwajalein to the Continental U.S. Additionally, the Kwajalein Space Operations Control Center was established at SMDC/ARSTRAT in Huntsville. Initial operation capability is scheduled for 2007.  Phase 3: Mission capable distributed operations-FY08 and beyond: The nal phase is the realization of space and missile testing operations from the United States, where all of the appropriate functional and technical staff will be relocated. Additional bene ts for the customer will be the ability to access critical mission data from CONUS and the reduction of customer travel costs to Kwajalein.Total cost of this initiative is expected to be $55 million, with $6.3 million per year being allotted for lease of the required bandwidth annually for 15 years. USAKA/RTS is committed to moving the majority of the operational mission to Huntsville, where it will be a valued addition to the hub of the Space and Missile Defense Command System Integration, Test and Evaluation Directorate. Many mission operations and jobs will be relocated to Hunstville, Ala. as ber optics become operational.

Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007 The Kwajalein HourglassWho would be free themselves must strike the blow....I urge you to y to arms and smite to death the power that would bury the Government and your liberty in the same hopeless grave. This is your golden opportunity.” — Frederick Douglass urging black men to join the Union cause.4 A f r i c a n A m e r i c a n African-American From slavery to freedom By Tamara WardContributorThe theme of this year’s National African-American History Month, ‘From Slavery to Freedom: Africans in the Americas,’ recalls African-Americans’ long journey to justice and commemorates the courage and persistence of the heroes who called on our Nation to live up to its founding promise.” This statement from George W. Bush’s 2007 proclamation sets the tone for Americans to re ect on the journey of African-Americans in the United States. Past (June 19, 1865 – 1960s) “Ain’t no man can avoid being born average, but there ain’t no man got to be common.” Satchel Paige Although the Civil War had ended a month earlier, many slaves in Texas had no idea, until Union troops rode into Galveston, Texas on June 19 to tell them. Word spread within days and now many states in America refer to June 19 as Juneteenth, the celebration of the end of slavery. Although contributions to society were already being made by AfricanAmericans, they were just starting to slowly be acknowledged. The rst major baseball league was formed in 1876, but African-Americans were never allowed to join. In 1920, however, the Negro National League was formed, and for 11 years, they could play baseball professionally, but never against a major baseball league. There were attempts to integrate certain players early on, but President Rutherford B. Hayes signing the Compromise of 1877, enacting the Jim Crow Laws, put a stop to it. The same ideal held in the military arena. While the Buffalo Soldiers were a peacetime all-black regiment established by Congress during the Civil War, it was never commanded by black of cers, and some were relegated to build roads and escort mail. With this mistreatment, they managed to still ght honorably for their country with 20 Soldiers earning the Medal of Honor; more than any other U.S. unit. After being denied the right to learn to read, AfricanAmericans wasted no time in educating themselves. In 1869, historically black college Howard University instituted its rst all-black law school, and in 1890, Meharry Medical College graduated its rst class of doctors. In History MonthToday’s black leaders include Illinois Senator Barak Obama who has announced that he will be a candidate for President of the United States in 2008. Blacks overcome racial obstacles, challenges

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007See HISTORY, Page 65 1944 the United Negro College Fund was founded to help fund higher education for blacks as well as raise funds for the colleges themselves. This rise in education also contributed to a period of time called the Harlem Renaissance when African-Americans expressed themselves in among other things, art and literature. In the midst of the stock market crash and the Great Depression, Langston Hughes wrote in one of his famous poems of how beautiful the souls of his people were. Present (1960s – present day) “Honor should not be given to those who w ant to help us, but to those w ho d o h e l p us. ” — the Rev. Ve rn o n Joh n s The Civil R i gh ts Movement gave birth to a different breed of African-Americans who were no longer comfortable with just being unhappy with segregation and racism. Being in the backseat of society was no longer acceptable, so they started getting involved and taking action to stop it. This era gave birth to the ‘sit in’, the boycott, and the March on Washington. Although Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was seemingly the Civil Rights leader of this age there were many who got directly involved with the call to end segregation. This movement was not without its casualties, however. Church burnings saw the lives end of four innocent little girls in Birmingham, Ala. A house bomb saw the life end of Harry T. Moore, the quiet schoolteacher who started many NAACP branches in the state of Florida. The contributions of black entertainers were always welcomed, but weren’t always respected. Dorothy Dandrige’s talent as an actress was welcomed to the big screen in movies such as Carmen Jones and Porgy and Bess but never through the front door of the theaters she often performed in. This treatment was starting to be called ‘blackballing’, and civil rights leader Jesse Jackson even called for a boycott of the Oscars one year that no African-Americans were S idney Poitier was the rst black actor to make t into the mainstream of Holl y wood and the rst b lack to receive the O scar for best actor in 1 963 o r his p erformance i n Lillies of the Field.

Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 HISTORY, from Page 5 Satchel Paige was considered the best pitcher in the Negro League, but longed for a chance to pitch in the Majors. His dream came true in 1948 with the Cleveland Indians. He also pitched for the St. Louis Browns and the Kansas City Monarchs. Paige supposedly pitched his last game at the ripe old age of 60. When asked about it, he said, “Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.” Many baseball historians say that if given a chance earlier in life, he would have been the best pitcher in baseball history. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971.nominate d in any o f t he m a j or categor i es.

Future “Racism should never be a factor that prevents you from pursuing your dreams and goals. If anything, it should motivate you to strive even harder for that dream or goal.” — Chief Warrant Of cer Phyllis Mitchell Senator Barack Obama has announced he will run for president in the 2008 election; it’s obvious AfricanAmericans no longer allow the color of their skin to limit their aspirations and ambitions. Recent opinion polls rank Obama as the second most popular choice among Democratic voters, showing that Americans as a whole don’t limit the aspirations and ambitions of AfricanAmericans either. Websites have been formed to promote and support the nomination of Oprah Winfrey, billionaire media mogul and philanthropist, for the Nobel Peace Prize, and history is still being made as the 2007’s Super Bowl saw teams led by two black coaches going head-to-head for the highest honor in American football. African-American History Month will be celebrated on Kwajalein Atoll, Feb. 24, with a luncheon given by USAKA, at the Yuk Club. Tickets are now on sale through the Provost Marshal Of ce. RSVP to Sarah Simpson, 52124. “Before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, we were here. Before the pen of Jefferson etched across the pages of history the majestic words of the Declaration of Independence, we were here. If the inexpressible cruelties of slavery could not stop us, the opposition we now face will surely fail.”— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dorothy Dandridge was the rst black woman nominated for the Oscar for best female actress in 1954 for her performance in Carmen Jones at a time when African-Americans could not enter some of the theaters that showed the movie.
