Kemem How a company slaps a country in its face To Mary Stone and all the folks at Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities for making Laurie Simpson’s sweet 16 birthday party a huge success. Thanks for all your hard work. COMMENTARY To all the awesome people who put the Hispanic Fiesta together this past weekend. the turnout was a great success, and we had bundles of fun. In a time when more and more American companies are showing just how ‘patriotic’ and greedy they are by outsourcing jobs and moving their headquarters offshore, one company has to stand out as the epitome of all that’s bad with American business these days. This company, that we all have come to know and ‘love,’ has received more than $20 billion in war contracts in Iraq and billions more for the Gulf Coast and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Of course, these contracts were all nobid. Why have honest competition? This loveable American company has been accused of serving spoiled food and contaminated water to our troops in Iraq. In addition, an investigation is underway to determine if the company overcharged the government to the tune of $2.7 billion or more. It’s been said that even the contractsecurity people this company hired in Iraq were shortchanged on proper equipment they needed for protection. To top all of this off, the company, after having been slopped like pigs in the trough of American taxpayer money, is moving overseas to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. You might recall that certain people in our country tried to push through a deal selling a few of our seaports to a Dubai company. The reason for this move is undoubtedly to avoid taxes on some of the billions in pro ts the company has made. Yeah, that’s the way to give back to your country, guys. It almost makes me misty-eyed just thinking about how ‘American’ you are. So, not only will this company probably continue gobbling up government contracts, but it won’t have to pay U.S. taxes on most of its pro ts. As one congressman put it, ‘What a slap in the face to American taxpayers and the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.’ I couldn’t agree more. There are cynics who say the company is leaving America because of the accusations of overcharging, mismanagement, waste, fraud and the possibilty of subpoenas and congressional hearings into all of their shady dealings. Oh, gee, I don’t believe that for a minute. Do you? One of the company’s executives said the reason for the move was that business opportunities in the west are drying up and more opportunites exist in the Middle East and Far East. Well, heck, then go ahead and leave the country where you built your wealth. We’re just your countrymen. That’s no big deal to you. I don’t think you bleed red, white and blue do you? Probably just green. I guess you want to be the poster child for corporate greed. Some say you’re a national disgrace and embarrassment. But, hey, the bottom line is all that counts these days, isn’t it? It trumps patriotism, loyalty and giving back to your country any day of the week, right? I guess it doesn’t make any difference to you that your headquarters will be in a country where money was laundered for the 9/11 terrorists and where some of them lived and at least one was a citizen. Hey, no big deal, right? Well, I’ll tell you what. I think America should throw you a going away party. I think Americans should stand on the shore and as you’re saying goodbye to us and your country, you should also be saying goodbye to any and all U.S. government contracts funded by U.S. taxpayers—forever. If you don’t need us, you don’t need our money either. But, what the heck, maybe we’ll have a few less crooks in our country if you go.So hey, good luck and all that. And don’t worry too much about terrorists kidnapping and beheading you big shots. I hear that only happens every now and then.

She was awarded the medal for her work with wounded in the Civil War.See WOMEN, Page 4WomenÂ’s History Month Women have distinguished record of military service ourish, as female doctors were generally not trusted or respected at that time.At the beginning of the American Civil War, she volunteered for the Union Army as a civilian. At rst, she was only allowed to practice as a nurse, as the Army had no female surgeons. During this period, she served at the rst Battle of Bull Run (Manassas), July 21, 1861 and at the Patent Of ce Hospital in Washington, D.C. She also worked as an unpaid eld surgeon near the Union front lines, including the Battle of Fredericksburg and in Chattanooga after the Battle of Chickamauga. Finally, she was awarded a commission as a "Contract Acting Assistant Surgeon (civilian)" by the Army of the Cumberland in September, 1863, becoming the rst ever female U.S. Army surgeon.Hourglass reportsEach year, March is designated as National Women's History Month to ensure that the history of American women will be recognized and celebrated in schools, workplaces, and communities throughout the country. The stories of women's historic achievements present an expanded view of the complexity and contradiction of living a full and purposeful life. The theme for Women's History Month 2007 is "Generations of Women Moving History Forward." This theme celebrates the wisdom and tenacity of prior and future generations of women and recognizes the power and impact of generations working together. Women have played important roles in maintaining the freedom of America. Even before America won its independence from Great Britain, women, though often with subterfuge, were key to the ght for freedom. Deborah Sampson Sampson's family was very poor. She was the oldest of six children. At the age of 8 to 10 years old, she became an indentured servant. She worked on a farm and worked very hard. She learned to sew and spin. She could hunt, ride a horse, and even do carpenter's work. She loved to learn and would get the boys in the family to teach her the lessons they were learning in school. She learned so well that she later became a teacher. During the Revolutionary War she wanted to help, but girls were not allowed to join the Army. She decided she could join the Army if she pretended to be a man. She practiced walking and talking like a man until she could even fool her mother. She was ready. In October, 1778 she became an enlisted "man" using the name Robert Shurtleff. She was tall for a woman; 5 foot and 7 inches, so her fellow soldiers thought she was a short man. They teased Shurtleff because he didn't have to shave, but they just thought this boy was too young to grow a beard. Things were going well until she was wounded in battle. She let the doctor treat the wound on her head, but she removed the bullet from her leg by herself with a penknife and a needle. Her leg never did heal properly, but her secret was still safe. She was afraid if they found out she was a girl, they would shoot her. Later she developed a fever and was put in the hospital. The doctor discovered that Shurtleff was actually a woman. He took her to his family's home to get well. She was given an honorable discharge from the army. After she left the army, she married a farmer named Benjamin Gannett and they had three children. She taught at a school and also gave talks or lectures about her experiences in the war. At the end of her lectures, she would leave the stage and then come back onstage dressed in her uniform and go through the soldier's routine with the gun. Paul Revere wrote a letter to Congress asking for her to be given a pension. She began receiving four dollars a month. She died at the age of sixty-six. It is uncertain how many women posed as men to ght for America's liberty. During the Civil War hundreds of women fought alongside men for both the Northern and Southern armies. Dr. Mary Walker Born in Oswego, N.Y., the daughter of Alvah and Vesta, Walker taught school as a young woman to earn enough money to pay her way through Syracuse Medical College where she graduated as a doctor in 1855. She married a fellow medical school student, Albert Miller, and they set up a joint practice in Rome, N.Y. The practice did not


Saturday, March 17, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 WOMEN, from Page 3She was later appointed assistant surgeon of the 52nd Ohio Infantry. During this service, she frequently crossed battle lines, treating civilians. On April 10, 1864, she was captured by Confederate troops and arrested as a spy (there appears to be some support to the idea that she actually was one). She was sent to Richmond and remained there until Aug. 12, 1864, when she was released as part of a prisoner exchange. She went on to serve during the Battle of Atlanta and later as supervisor of a female prison in Louisville, Ky., and head of an orphanage in Tennessee. After the war, she was recommended for the Congressional Medal of Honor by Generals William Tecumseh Sherman and George Henry Thomas. On Nov. 11, 1865, President Andrew Johnson signed a bill to present her the medal, speci cally for her services at the rst Battle of Bull Run (Manassas). After the war, she became a writer and lecturer, supporting such issues as health care, temperance, women's rights and, quite naturally, dress reform for women. She wore men's clothes exclusively for the rest of her life. In 1917, the U.S. Congress, after revising the standards for award of the medal so that it could only be given to those who had been involved in "actual combat with an enemy", revoked more than 900 previously-awarded medals, including that of Dr. Walker and William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Although ordered to return the medal, she refused to do so and continued to wear it until her death. President Jimmy Carter restored her medal posthumously in 1977. In World War II, a Liberty ship, the SS Mary Walker was named for her. Cathay Williams Williams was born into slavery near Independence, Mo. in 1842. She grew up and worked as a housegirl for wealthy planter William Johnson in Jefferson City, Mo. During the Civil War, Union soldiers liberated Williams and she spent the remainder of the war as a paid servant of the Union Army. On Nov. 15, 1866, shortly after her job with the Army ended, Williams disguised her gender and joined the 38th Infantry, Company A, in St. Louis, becoming a Buffalo Soldier. At the time, there was no requirement for a physical examination and she enlisted using the name William Cathay. She was discharged from the Army at Ft. Bayard, N.M. on Oct. 14, 1868. 30,000 women served In 1901 and 1908 the establishment of the Army and Navy Nurse Corps opened the door for women in the military, but ever so slightly. It wasn't until the United States got involved in World War I that some parts of the government got serious about using woman power. As the Army stumbled around bureaucratic red tape trying to gure out how to enlist women, the Navy simply ignored the War Department dissenters and quickly recruited women. Nearly 13,000 women enlisted in the Navy and the Marine Corps on the same status as men and wore a uniform blouse with insignia. The Navy's policy was extended to the Coast Guard, but personnel records from World War I contain scarcely any references to the Coast Guard Yeomanettes. A handful of them apparently were employed at the diminutive Coast Guard headquarters building in Washington,D.C. Nineteen-year-old twin sisters Genevieve and Lucille Baker transferred from the Naval Coastal Defense Reserve to become the rst Women pilots delivered airplanes to combat areas and also served as air traf c controllers, radio operators, mechanics and parachute riggers during World War II. Many were killed or injured due to their ying duties. (DoD photo)Posters urged women to plant ‘victory’ gardens to help supply the nations’ food during both World Wars.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 17, 2007 5 See WOMEN, Page 6 uniformed women in the Coast Guard. With the war's end the Coast Guard Yeomanettes, along with their Navy and Marine Corps counterparts, were mustered out of the service. It was the service of women in the military and the defense works that gave a huge push to the passing of the 19th Amendment. President Woodrow Wilson was won over to the suffragists' side in part because of the bravery of women serving on the front and their proven abilities as they replaced men in of ces and factories. In September 1918, Wilson addressed the Senate, urging that they follow the House in passing the 19th Amendment. His dramatic plea asked that the Senators recognize the contributions made by American women in the war. Wilson proclaimed ... "...Are we alone to ask and take the utmost that our women can give, service and sacri ce of every kind, and still say we do not see what title that gives them to stand by our sides in the guidance of the affairs of their nations and ours? We have made partners of the women in this war; shall we admit them only to a partnership of suffering and sacri ce and toil and not to a partnership of privilege and right?" World War II While Hitler was moving across Europe, the military minds in Washington, D.C. were stonewalling women's organizations, patriotic pressures, and anyone who had the temerity to suggest that women should be in the military. The politicians made promises of considering an auxiliary of sorts while quietly hoping it would all go away and secretly trying to gure out how to stop it. Fortunately, Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers and Eleanor Roosevelt thought otherwise. Rogers introduced a bill on May 28, 1941, to establish a Women's Army Auxiliary Corps for service with the Army of the United States. By virtue of its being an auxiliary corps, there was no hint of full military status for women. The bill was dissected, bisected, stalled, lost, amended, sandbagged, and all but trashed until General George C. Marshall took an interest While several government departments cooperated, the Bureau of the Budget continued to stall in spite of pressure from Roosevelt, Marshall and other interested parties and groups. By late November of 1941, there was still no de nitive action. At this point Marshall literally ordered the War Department to create a women's corps. The Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, left 2,235 servicemen and 68 civilians dead. Eighty-two Army nurses were serving at three Army Medical Facilities in Hawaii that infamous December morning. Hundreds of casualties suffering from burns and shock were treated by Army and Navy nurses working side-by-side with civilian nurses and doctors. Nurses at Scho eld Hospital and Hickam Field faced similar overwhelming numbers of wounded personnel. The chief nurse at Hickam Field, 1st Lt. Annie G. Fox, was the rst of many Army nurses to receive a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. Four days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and twenty-three years after the idea of women in the military was born, the Bureau of the Budget stopped objecting, planners began to plan and cooperation suddenly became the watchword. The bill was amended, reintroduced, stuck in committees, and stalled. The search was on for a director, a training center and the appropriate equipment. The military men in charge of logistics searched for ideas, for no regulations existed. Finally on May 14, 1942, the bill to "Establish a Women's Army Auxiliary Corps" became law and Oveta Culp Hobby, wife of the former governor of Texas, was named director. While bills were being bandied around Congress, women were being trained at the rst WAAC Training Center in Fort Des Moines, Iowa. With a nudge from Roosevelt, the Navy got its act together and began authorizing a Women's Naval Reserve and the Marine Corps Women's reserve. The Coast Guard followed soon after. The rst director of the WAVES Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service was Lt. Cmdr. Mildred McAfee, president of Wellesley College. The SPARS, which came from the Coast Guard motto Semper Paratus always ready, were led by Lt. Cmdr Dorothy C. Stratton. The Marine Corps Women's Reserve was headed by Maj. Ruth Cheyney Streeter. The WAAC was changed to the WAC establishing it as a part of the Army and not an auxiliary by a second bill in July of 1943, signed into law by President Roosevelt. While decisions were made by the politicians, the rst WAAC contingent was serving at the Allied Forces Women are serving in combat roles in Iraq and Afghanistan along with their male counterparts. Thirty-three women have been killed in Iraq.


Saturday, March 17, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass WOMEN, from Page 5 Army nurses arrive at Normandy in June, 1944.6Headquarters in Algiers, North Africa. By January 1944, the rst WACs arrived in the Paci c, and in July of 1944, WACs landed on the beach at Normandy. There were over 100,000 women in uniform at this point in time. Nurses were already serving in England and Egypt. Women continued to serve overseas through 1945, and at one point there were more than 2,000 WACs serving in North Africa alone. From there women were sent to Italy to serve with the 5th Army, and these women moved all over Italy during the Italian campaign handling the communications; they earned commendations, Bronze Stars and the respect of their fellow soldiers as they sloughed through mud, lived in tents, dove into foxholes and dugouts during the Anzio air raids. During the battle on Anzio, six Army nurses were killed by the German bombing and strafing of the tented hospital area. Four Army nurses among the survivors were awarded Silver Stars for extraordinary courage under re. In all, more than 200 Army nurses lost their lives during World War II. Toward the end of the war in Europe, the European Theater boasted WACs stationed across England, France, and Germany in cities like Berlin, Frankfurt, Wiesbaden and Heidelberg. If you're wondering where were the women of the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard, ironically regulations did not permit them to serve overseas until the war was almost over. But Navy nurses were serving on board hospital ships, in air evacs, and every place from Australia to the Paci c. As the war escalated in the Paci c, women were sent to New Guinea, Leyte and Manila in the Philippines, as well as the China-Burma-India theater. More than 5,000 women served in the Southwest Paci c area. Army nurses served throughout the Paci c in increasing numbers between Dec. 7, 1941, and the end of the war. Nurses were stationed on the islands of Guadalcanal, New Guinea, Saipan, Guam and Tinian. A Japanese suicide plane bombed the hospital ship USS Comfort off Leyte Island. In the attack six nurses, ve medical of cers, eight enlisted men, and seven patients were killed, and four nurses were wounded Often ignored by history is the story of the women prisoners of war taken captive during World War II. Sixty-seven Army nurses and 16 Navy nurses spent three years as prisoners of the Japanese. Many were captured when Corregidor fell in 1942 and were subsequently transported to the Santo Tomas Internment camp in Manila, in the Philippines. Santo Tomas was not liberated until February 1945. Five Navy nurses were captured on Guam and interned in a military prison in Japan. Two days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, ve Navy nurses, Lts. j.g. Leona Jackson, Lorraine Christiansen, Virginia Fogerty and Doris Yetter, under the command of chief nurse Marion Olds on Guam were taken prisoner by the Japanese. Nurses received 1,619 medals, citations, and commendations during the war, re ecting the courage and dedication of all who served. Sixteen medals were awarded posthumously to nurses who died as a result of enemy re. Thirteen ight nurses died in aircraft crashes while on duty. Sixteen women received the Purple Heart. The Bronze Star was awarded to 565 women for meritorious service overseas. More than 700 WACs received medals and citations at the end of the war. Countless women served in all branches of the service stateside and relieved or replaced men for combat duty overseas. Women performed admirably in every job imaginable including the dedicated Women's Air Service pilots who ew military aircraft to destination bases, suffered casualties, and yet were denied full military status. Korea After World War II, women who were serving in the military were released from duty and expected to return to their more traditional roles as wives and mothers. Not all of America's leaders felt that a woman's place was in the home. Gen. Dwight Eisenhower strongly recommend that women become a part of the U.S. military. He was backed by several other senior of cers who had worked with women during World War II and had nothing but praise for their efforts. On the 12th of June, President Harry Truman signed on the dotted line, putting Public Law 625, The Women's Armed Services Act of 1948 into effect. It opened the door for dedicated women to serve their country in peacetime. One thing it did not do, that is often misinterpreted, is create separate women's branches, corps or forces. The only unit to retain that distinction was the WAC. The rest of the women in the other branches of service were, for all intents, but not every purpose, fully integrated. Or, so the law implied. It just didn't happen that way. Two years later, in June of 1950, as the overall numbers for women in the military dropped to a postwar low, the North Korean Communists crossed the 38th parallel. Truman ordered troops into South Korea, and within a few days the Army Nurse Corps was also there. More than 120,000 women served in the armed forces during the Korean War era. The 13 Army nurses of the 1st MASH and those of the 4th Field Hospital made the landing in In-


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 17, 2007 See WOMEN, Page 87chon with Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and by the end of 1950, more than 200 Army Nurse Corps of cers were in Korea. In addition to the nurses actually in Korea, many women served at support units nearby, in Japan and other far eastern countries. By this point in time, the 1950s, almost a million women had worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. They had been prisoners of war, they had been wounded, they ew planes, planned strategies, nursed the casualties, and died for this country. One of the women who served was Capt. Lillian Kinkela Keil, a member of the Air Force Nurse Corps and one of the most decorated women in the U.S. military. Keil ew more than 200 air evacuation missions during World War II as well as 25 trans-Atlantic crossings. She went back to civilian ying with United Airlines after the war, but when the Korean con ict erupted, she donned her uniform once more and ew several hundred more missions as a ight nurse in Korea. Keil was the inspiration for the 1953 movie Flight Nurse and served as technical advisor to the lm. Her decorations include the European Theater of Operations with Four Battle Stars; the Air Medal with Three Oak Leaf Clusters; the Presidential Unit Citation with One Oak Leaf Cluster; the Korean Service Medal with Seven Battle Stars; the American Campaign Medal; the United Defense Medal; and Presidential Citation, Republic of Korea. Vietnam era "Women are warriors the same as men are warriors, and what this country owes them, if owe' is the word, is the same as we give any warrior. And that everytime we sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" and we really get off on the rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our ag is still there' that there are Soldiers, both men and women, that have given that assurance, and you owe' for that assurance. And if you don't want to pay it, don't sing the song," said Liz Allen, RVN, 67-68 All women who served in Vietnam were volunteers, whether civilian or military. At one time there was discussion about drafting women nurses, but this was never implemented. Some women military asked to go to Vietnam, and some were sent against their wishes and even against recruiter's promises, but all were volunteers because they voluntarily signed up for the military. "The military, which prided itself on the records it kept in Vietnam counting the enemy number of weapons captured, for example cannot, to this day, say with certainty how many women served. The army that sent them never bothered to count them. The estimate most frequently given is that a total of 7,500 served in the military in Vietnam," said Laura Palmer, former Vietnam War correspondent. Desert Storm The con ict in the Persian Gulf began on Aug. 2, 1990, after talks between Iraq and Kuwait did not resolve grievances over oil pricing. Iraq's President Saddam Hussein, sent armies to invade Kuwait. On the day of Kuwait's invasion, President George H.W. Bush placed a U.S. economic embargo against Iraq. The United Nations Security Council quickly followed suit. On Aug. 7, after Saddam Hussein refused to remove his troops from Kuwait, Bush ordered Operation Desert Shield to begin. Efforts by the U.N. Security Council for a peaceful resolution with Iraq proved futile. On Jan. 15, the council appealed to Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait nothing happened at noon the deadline for peace had passed. On Jan. 16 Operation Desert Storm began. By Feb. 25, thousands upon thousands of Iraqi soldiers abandoned their stockpiles of equipment, weapons and ammunition and surrendered. On Feb. 27, the Iraqi military was scattered and defeated, and Kuwait was liberated. Mobilization for the Gulf War included an unprecedented proportion of women from the active forces (seven percent) as well as the Reserve and National Guard (17 percent). It was the largest female deployment in U.S. history. Over 40,000 U.S. military women served in key combatsupport positions throughout the Persian Gulf Region. Women in Desert Storm did everything the male troops did except engage in ground combat they could essentially get red upon they just weren't, by existing regulations, theoretically allowed to shoot back! "I was a female paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. I want to make you aware of the fact that the females in the 82nd were among the ground troops that pushed into Iraq during the ground war...and we most de nitely could shoot back, said an anonymous Soldier Sixteen women died during the war, and two were held prisoner. More than 40,000 were deployed and several thousand more served stateside in essential mission-support roles. The service women of the 90s served in the mainstream of the mission goals of Desert Storm and demonstrated that women perform as well as men.Global War on Terror They gave their lives in the Pentagon attack: Petty Women served with distinction in Desert Storm.
