Kemem2 COMMENTARY See VETERANS, Page 6Thanks for Amazing Race L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor Veterans only ask for what their country promised To Jim Stepchew and his board for a wonderful evening at the CommodoreÂ’s Ball. The decorations were pretty, the food was good and the band rocked. Thanks to all the amazing people who contributed to make the Senior High FellowshipÂ’s Amazing Race a success. We especially want to thank all the volunteers who helped plan and monitor all the race events. A special thanks goes to Community Activities for its signi cant contributions, the Kwajalein Running Club for use of its signs and Wendy Peacock, Lora Kendrick and AnnElise My father didnÂ’t talk much about World War II. Only occassionally would he let slip any memories. I guess he, like most of the men who lived through the war, just buried it deep inside. I do remember him saying that before he shipped out to the battle elds of Europe that any man in a military uniform was treated like a hero in the states. People would buy dinners, theater tickets and drinks for Soldiers, Sailors and Marines. And the women, well . .they were Â‘ irtatious.Â’ But then the war ended and millions of men returned home. There were some parades, some pats on the back, some Â‘well dones,Â’ but those men returning home werenÂ’t special anymore. My father said he knew he wasnÂ’t any big deal the rst time he looked for a job after getting out of the Army. The guy doing the hiring had no doubt spent the whole war keeping his rear end in his comfortable of ce chair. He had been warm and cozy and well fed while my father and millions like him had fought, bled and died in freezing cold and unbearable heat and ate cold rations. The man in the chair had never seen friends blown apart. He had never heard wounded screaming. He had never known what it was like to be too scared to move, but moved anyway because not to move was to die. He had never looked down the sight of a ri e and pulled the trigger to kill a man. But, that made no difference at all. The man in the chair held the power. The man said no to my father, who had literally begged for the job, and as my father was leaving, the man said Â“Hey, thanks for serving.Â” Yeah, thanks for serving. I can still recall how appalled I was as a youngster when I read in my school history book about the Â‘bonus armyÂ’ during the Great Depression. In May of 1932, during the Depression, jobless veterans of World War I gathered in Washington, D.C. to ask for early payment on bonuses Congress had promised to them for their service in the war. They were out of work, out of luck, out of money and out of hope. They were desperate and only wanted what the country had promised them. The gathering eventually numbered some 20,000 veterans who set up camps near the capitol to lobby and protest to Congress. The government looked upon them as agitators and communists. Eventually, Army troops and cavalry led by Gen. Douglass MacArther began pushing the veterans out and destroying their camps. Hundreds of the vets were injured by gas, clubs, bayonets and sabers. The troops reached the main camp and burned everything in it. The New York Times described Â‘a pitiful stream of refugee veterans of the World War walking out of their camps, going they knew not where.Â’ Yeah, thanks for serving. How many saw the movie, Born On the Fourth of July ? A true story, it tells the tale of a Marine, Ron Kovic, who was wounded and became a paraplegic in the Vietnam War. The movie recounts his ordeal in the Veterans Administration Hospital he was in. It tells of rats and roaches. It tells of unfeeling, See RACE, Page 6
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 14, 2007 3Skate park vandalism causes $4,000 in damage JJ KleinReporterA string of vandalism incidents at the skate park by island youth is under investigation by the Kwajalein Police Department. KPD suspects elementary school-age children of marking up concrete ooring and skate ramps with graf ti that includes the names of the culprits and explicit language. Â“The vandalism at the skate park was in the form of graf ti. The graf ti consisted of love notes, obscene language and pictures and names of individuals. The graf ti was written using a wax substance that soaked into the composite material,Â” Bryan Mesey, Investigator for KPD, said. Â“I found a small amount of graf ti around the end of January during a safety inspection. I donÂ’t really know how long it had been there,Â” said Mandie Morris, Kwajalein Range Services Pools and Beaches coordinator. Â“But in the last month, I would say the amount of vandalism has tripled.Â” Mid-February Â“there was an incident where one of the quarter pipes and one whole side of the half pipe were graf tied,Â” Morris continued. Â“The half pipe contained some pretty graphic profanity.Â” The skate park ramps are constructed of a composite material meant to withstand cleansers, solvents and the weather, according to True Ride, Inc., the company that built the Kwajalein park. Unfortunately the culprits used a wax substance that melted leaving oily stains that soaked into the composite material. Skateboarders and rollerbladers told Morris it is dif cult to perform tricks when they Â“hit a big oily spot on the ramp.Â” Â“The crime in itself is very serious. The amount of property damage classi es this crime as a felony valued at several thousands of dollars,Â” Mesey said of the vandalism. He added that the investigation began Feb. 27 and is ongoing. Community Activities of ce estimates the cost to repair/replace the damage close to $4,000. Morris and Community Activities workers spent Wednesday trying to sand down the ramp scribbled with foul language or cover up the destruction without much success. They are working hard to make the park presentable for ShredFest, the skate park event scheduled for March 24. Â“Parents should be aware when sending children to the skate park that there is still some graf ti containing visible profanity,Â” cautioned Morris. Â“Community Activities has tried everything suggested by the manufacturer, but were still not able to completely remove the profanity.Â” The Community Activities of ce will not tolerate any destruction of property or graf ti at the park. If the vandalism does not end, Morris said the of ce will be forced to close the park. Â“I really would like to keep this park open. That is why I came up with the idea for Â‘ShredFest.Â’ I wanted the kids out here to learn the safety, basics, and etiquette of skating,Â” Morris said. Â“It would be a shame if the park had to close because of poor choices by a few individuals.Â” KPD is trying to get to the bottom of the vandalism. Â“Several suspects have been identi ed and interviews are ongoing,Â” Mesey said. Â“The parents, thus far, have been very cooperative and understanding with the investigation.Â” Once it is determined who committed the vandalism, Col. Stevenson Reed, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander and the Juvenile Review Board will mete out the youthsÂ’ consequences. Mesey asked that any community members with information concerning the skate park vandalism contact KPD. He added that patrol will continue to watch the area. Â“I really would like to keep this park open. That is why I came up with the idea for Â‘ShredFest.Â’ I wanted the kids out here to learn the safety, basics, and etiquette of skating. It would be a shame if the park had to close because of poor choices by a few individuals.Â” Â— Mandie Morris, Kwajalein Range Services Pools and Beaches coordinator The skate park vandalism includes obscenities written on the wood which has not been able to be removed completely and will cost $4,000 to repair or replace.

Wednesday, March 14, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass T 4 Local musical talent raises $4,000 for Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club student scholarship fund By Nell DrumhellerEditorThe 7th Annual Kaleidoscope of Music showcased community talent on Sunday and Monday evening and raised approximately $4,000 to support the Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club Scholarship Fund. With performances from classic piano recitals to locally written duets, the audiences on both nights had a chance to see some of their co-workers in a different light. Jennifer Aakre, a pianist, was the chairperson for this yearÂ’s event. Â“I kept turning it down as my schedule is so busy.Â” Aakre wears many hats in Kwajalein Range Services Food Services division, including recently taking on Quality Control responsibilities. Â“But there was talk of cancelling the event if nobody stepped up to be chairperson. I couldnÂ’t let that happen. I think itÂ’s an important event. So we made it work, busy schedule and all.Â” Musicians ranged from 8-year-old Alan Rosenthal, who started the nightly performances with a piano solo, to regulars Jim and Sarah Muhich performing original songs in a folk-music feel and young, old and in between on saxophones of all kinds in the sax ensemble. Â“The musicians are found by word of mouth and people that have performed in the past,Â” Aakre explained the audition process. Â“Also the community sees the advertising and they may call and say they would like to be involved.Â” No two years are the same, Â“The program is determined by what talent we have available. When it comes down to the actual line up, I just tried to mix it up a little,Â” Aakre said. Halfway through the show the audience had a chance to stand up, stretch their legs and ll their bellies while they feasted on baked goodies provided by the YYWC membership. Â“This year the crowds were smaller as the island is getting smaller. A large part of that was a $2,000 donation from the KAISC [Kwajalein Atoll International Sport shing Club],Â” Aakre said. Though the curtains have closed on this yearÂ’s Kaleidoscope, work behind the scenes continues. Â“ItÂ’s not over yet; now is the actual scholarship part.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 14, 2007 5 has a committee that will interview candidates and award the scholarships at graduation. The whole program is to raise money for the KHS senior scholarship fund.Â” Aakre added, Â“I donÂ’t know if the audience is aware of all the time that goes into an event like this. The performers put a lot of practice into Kaleidoscope and are very serious about trying to give a great performance. And the nerves run wild on show nights.Â” She said the highlight of this yearÂ’s performance was seeing peoplesÂ’ passion for music and their willingness to give their time to a worthwhile program. Â“It takes a lot of people to make this event work,Â” Aakre said. Â“There are several little details I would iron out before next year. Nothing serious, just things you learn along the journey. And since the island is getting smaller, maybe change the event to a one night show,Â” she added.Â“I want to thank everyone that was involved with Kaleidoscope. There are so many people that helped, and I want them all to know how much they are appreciated! I learned things, I met new people, and lastly I want to congratulate the KHS senior class. They will be starting a new chapter in their lives after graduation, and thatÂ’s exciting,Â” she said. Alan Rosenthal performs Pastorale on piano. Homemade desserts were provided to residents who attended the event. Â“I donÂ’t know if the audience is aware of all the time that goes into an event like this. The performers put a lot of practice into Kaleidoscope and are very serious about trying to give a great performance.

Wednesday, March 14, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Reading to ChildrenVETERANS, from Page 2 uncaring orderlies and attendants. It recounts how a doctor who cared didnÂ’t have the equipment he needed and had to jury rig a pump to stop an infection in KovicÂ’s paralyzed legs. It tells the tale of how he was ignored by the VA after he left the hospital. He went through hell. Kovic was just one of the more than 313,000 wounded from Vietnam. How many thousands of Vietnam vets applied to the VA for help after suffering the effects of Agent Orange, post traumatic stress disorder and other warrelated physical and mental problems? It took years for veterans to nally get any help or acknowledgment of their problems from the VA. By the time the VA conceded that Agent Orange was causing health problems, it was too late for veterans who had died. Many still suffer effects from it today and are battling to receive due compensation. By the time the government agreed that post traumatic stress disorder was for real, many veterans had taken their own lives or became alcoholics or drug users because they couldnÂ’t get help. Even now, the VA intends to review more than 72,000 cases of post traumatic stress disorder in Vietnam vets for possible denial of continued payments. This would require veterans to prove their cases all over again. Senator Barak Obama has tried to get the VA to stop the review. He has said that veterans should not have to go through the emotionally painful process another time. According to the Honolulu Advertiser, in an article written by Dennis Camire, more than a quarter of veterans wait six months or longer for the VA to make a decision on their cases. For many veterans, this has led to bankruptcy and in some cases, homelessness. Testimony before Congress said some vets have died while their claims languished for years with the VA. Many veterans have written to their congressmen asking for help. They donÂ’t know how they will survive until their claim is processed. As of March 3, according to the Advertiser article, the VA has more than 400,000 pending claims and those are increasing by an average of 29,000 for the years weÂ’ve been in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of these delays are caused by untrained VA staff and outmoded computer equipment. The number of claims is expected to rise over the next ve years because of the wars, so itÂ’s expected to get worse, not better. Now comes the revelations about Walter Reed Hospital and the conditions in the outpatient wards. Can anyone say theyÂ’re really surprised? Oh, the politicians say they were surprised, but IÂ’m talking about anyone who tells the truth. No, I think many of us were shocked and appalled to hear that news, but surprised? No, I donÂ’t think so. IÂ’ll bet there are millions of veterans who werenÂ’t surprised at all. There are some good VA hospitals and doctors and nurses who provide wonderful care for veterans. But for the most part, the treatment of veterans has been sorely lacking for decades, and there is no excuse that could possibly be accepted for what some veterans have had to deal with. Some blame it on lack of money. How can money be an object when it comes to the men and women who gave their arms, legs, sight and mental health to serve our country. Money? No excuse. Some blame bureaucracy. Well then, change the system. No, not an excuse. Yes, heads are rolling now, congressmen and citizens are angry and things are being Â‘ xed.Â’ But things in the VA have been Â‘ xedÂ’ before when outrage arose over treatment of vets, and as soon as peopleÂ’s attention was focused elsewhere, things slowly slid back to being Â‘un xed.Â’ Hopfefully, that wonÂ’t be the case this time. The men and women who need the VA, the government, and the support of the American people didnÂ’t come up with excuses not to serve and sacri ce. Our country shouldnÂ’t come up with excuses not to take care of them when they need it. There are more than 23 million veterans in America today. I bet most of them never ask for anything. But if they do ask, like the World War I vets before them, they only ask for what their country promised for their service and sacri ce. They should be able to get it without ghting another battle. Peterson for making the T-shirts. We couldnÂ’t have managed without our trouble-shooter, Jeff Childers. Thanks to those who helped make the signs, loaned their bikes and provided food for the cookout. Thanks to JJ Klein for her coverage of the event in the Hourglass and to our wonderfully supportive community. Finally, thanks to the senior high youth who participated with such positive energy and teamwork. We love you. Â— John and Karen PicklerRACE, from Page 2 Members of the community are invited to take a few minutes out of their work days to read to elementary students at the George Seitz Elementary School. Col.
