Kemem2 Commander discusses budgetary concernsSee FAREWELL, Page 6 Many of you have heard by now that we have been given yet another budget challenge. Let me explain. The Of ce of the Secretary of Defense has instructed SMDC and other Army commands to reprogram funds to support our Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Speci cally, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll activities will reprogram $50 million to OSD until this year’s defense budget is nalized. Although we expect this money to be moved back into the USAKA budget by July 1, we need to take prudent measures to control spending in the meantime. Speci cally, we will be authorizing mission-essential travel only. Overtime will be limited to emergency situations only. Relocations are to be postponed where possible. Non-essential purchases will be delayed. We are also looking at other options that could eliminate non-essential expenses or delay expenditures until later in the year. We have directed Kwajalein Range Services and other USAKA contractors to implement similar savings measures. Those of you who have been on Kwajalein for a while have been through this sort of exercise before, and I’m sure you do not look forward to it this time. We hope to bene t from previous experiences and handle this challenge as well as we possibly can. Our focus will be on measures that will cause the least disruption from which we can recover Editorials Army Chief of Staff gives farewell messagerapidly once funding is restored. My duty is to try to minimize impacts on our programs and on your lives. However, we are supporting a war effort, and we need to be ready to make some sacri ces to support our ghting men and women. I very much appreciate your support and cooperation.By Gen. Peter J. Shoomaker U.S. Army Chief of StaffThe following is a farewell message to the Army from Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, the 35th chief of staff of the Army. Tomorrow [this speech was given on Friday] we will stand on the parade eld at Fort Myer and the mantle of Army Chief of Staff will pass to Gen. George W. Casey. It has been a tremendous privilege and honor to serve alongside you the Soldiers, civilians and family members who make the Army the world’s preeminent land force, the ultimate instrument of national resolve. Upon becoming 35th Army chief of staff in August 2003, I issued an “Arrival Message” to the force. In that message I spoke of standing in an Iranian desert in 1980, on a moonlit night, at a place called Desert One, where eight of our comrades lost their lives and others were forever scarred. I spoke of keeping a photo of the carnage that night to remind me of the grief and failure of that mission and the commitment survivors of that operation made to a different future. Having now been in this Army for almost four decades, and having seen the Army my father served in for 32 years before that, I can tell you in no uncertain terms that today’s battlehardened Army does, in fact, re ect the different “future” we envisioned. Standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, the men and women of today’s Army have remained focused on our nonnegotiable responsibility to the nation. For almost 232 years, the Army has never failed the American people, and it never will. We have been resolute in the pursuit of our four overarching strategies providing relevant and ready landpower; training and equipping Soldiers to serve as warriors and growing adaptive leaders; sustaining the all-volunteer force composed of highly competent Soldiers who are provided a quality of life commensurate with the level of their service; and providing infrastructure and support to enable the force to ful ll its strategic roles and missions. Furthermore, instead of reigning in our drive to transform during a time of war, we have leveraged opportunities in this con ict to establish and accelerate the momentum necessary to reshape the entire force into a more capable campaign-quality force with vastly improved joint and expeditionary capabilities. Speci cally, as we serve alongside our joint and allied partners in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, we have improved the Army’s ability to operate and dominate in any environment against current, emerging and unforeseen threats. While working to grow the regular Army by 30,000 since 2004, we now have authority to permanently increase our endstrength by over 74,000 Soldiers across all components—active, national guard and reserve. We have created far more

(Photo by Cris Lindborg)By Cris LindborgMarshall Islands Swimming Federation directorImagine walking into a stadium where nearly 10,000 people are watching you swim; everywhere you look, there are athletes and coaches, of cials, referees, judges, lights, photographers and cameras aiming in your direction. This is what ve Republic of the Marshall Islands swimmers recently experienced in Melbourne, where they represented this country at the World Championships, a competition that gathers the best athletes in the world. Fear is actually a good feeling; being nervous gets your adrenaline going. When you step up to the blocks and the whistle blows, your mind goes blank and you swim harder and faster than you have ever done before. When you end the race, you are not sure if you are rst or last, but you know that you have done your best; you have trained hard to get to this point. The feeling of exhilaration shows in your smile, which for a brief moment ashes on the large screen above the pool. Over 1,000 swimmers experienced the same feeling; for some, it is a disappointment not to be rst, but for us, it is an honor to be among the best. Jared Heine, Michael Taylor, Justin deCoster, Giordan Harris and Julianne Kirchner prepared for this event for more than six months. Heine has been training full-time in Florida and was eager to improve his times, hoping to reach qualifying requirements to represent the RMI at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He is very near the entry times and hopes to achieve them at the next big competition, perhaps the South Paci c Games in Samoa. The training for Kwaj-based swimmers was supervised by Coach Sarah Stepchew. The training included daily early morning practice before school, followed by afternoon sessions for another one to two hours. All that work paid off in their improved performances: All Kwaj swimmers clocked personal best times. The Fdration Internationale de Natation World Championships are held every two years. FINA is the international federation that regulates water sports. This is one of the most prestigious competitions for swimming. The 12th FINA World Championships were the biggest ever. More than 2,200 athletes from 171 nations participated in Melbourne. The competition included swimming, diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and open ocean swimming. It is estimated more than 215,000 people attended the championships, held for a period of two weeks. The outstanding athletes for the swimming competitions were Michael Phelps, from the United States, who won seven gold medals, four of those while setting new world records. Libby Lenton, swimming for Australia, was the outstanding female performer earning ve gold medals. The Marshall Islands Swimming Federation is part of the RMI National Olympic Committee. Athletes were selected to represent the RMI conforming to citizenship/residency requirements as well as for their athletic performance. The RMI delegation returned home inspired to continue to work hard, improve and hoping to infect other swimmers with their enthusiasm and passion for the sport. Stepchew summarized the experience, “The number of swim practices we held in the early morning hours before school and again in the early evening hours over the last few months were many, many, many, but the reward of seeing all that training parlayed into great swimming by our kids, was even greater. It is a truly rewarding experience to coach a group of dedicated swimmers such as these and to participate in such a world class event. I am looking forward to future competitions.” Julianne Kirchner, 15, a freshman at Kwajalein High School, was born in Kwajalein; Kirchner was the rst female participant to represent the RMI. She participated in the Micronesian Games in Saipan and earned three silver medals as part of the relay team. In Melbourne she

The KRI Dewaruci a barquentine tall ship from Indonesia, was in port through Sunday. Crewed by Indonesian naval of cers and cadets, the ship will participate in an international celebration of sail training and sea education around the Newport and Fort Adams, R.I., waterfronts, June 27-July 1. The KRI Dewaruci is a Class A tall ship owned and operated by the Indonesian Navy. She is used as a sail training vessel for naval cadets and is the largest tall ship in the Indonesian eet. The Dewaruci also serves as a goodwill ambassador for the country of Indonesia to the rest of the world. The name Dewaruci is derived from the name of a sea god in Indonesian folklore, symbolizing honesty

Destined for the Indonesian Naval Academy, construction of the 191-foot, three-masted ship was started in 1952 by H.C. Stulcken in Hamburg, Germany, and she was launched in 1953. Ever since, the barquentine has been based in Surabaya and used as the Indonesian NavyÂ’s sail-training ship. The crew of the Dewaruci offered two open house times during their visit. Members of the Kwajalein community toured the ship on Friday and Saturday afternoons. The Dewaruci will call again at Kwajalein in October on the return voyage. There are 17 of cers and 68 naval cadets serving on the Dewaruci TSRI 2007 is an international celebration of worldclass tall ships and youth training programs, culminating in the most extensive maritime festival ever, spreading across the entire Newport Harbor. Highlighted by the presence of the tall ships eet and capped by the grand Parade of Sail to sea, itÂ’s planned to attract over 250,000 visitors as it reaches out to the entire state of Rhode Island and neighboring New England states.

Wednesday, April 11, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6FAREWELL, from Page 2 Grace Sherwood Library goes high tech By Nell DrumhellerEditorReading is fundamental; at least that’s what’s taught in school. The Kwajalein community has access to enough books to keep pages turning for a long time. The Grace Sherwood Library, located on the second oor of Building 805, has more than 17,000 books on its shelves. Beginning today, a new automation system will make nding and checking out books at the library high tech. “Patrons can access our collection on our library computers. We will begin checking out material electronically today,” Amy Hansen, librarian, said. “There will be about a month long transition phase where will continue to also use our old system along with the new to ensure continued smooth operation.” The automated system is a web based database of all of the library’s books. “In the future we will also have audio and video collection in it,” Hansen said. “The system allows us to check out material to patrons with a barcode scanner. It also allows patrons to search our database by author, title, subject, keyword or series. So, gone are the days of the card catalog.” She added, “With the new automation system, GSL enters the 21st century. The collection will be easily searchable from one central location, bringing information to patrons’ nger tips.” More than 250 people use the library each week. The automated system is intuitive according to Hansen, “just like a web search engine like Google.com Type in a book title, author, key word, or subject and hit enter. You immediately glean if the library has the book, where to nd it, and if it’s available for checkout, and if patrons have any questions, the staff is always happy to assist.” The library isn’t just about hardback volumes. “We also have audio books, magazines, newspapers, video tapes, and we are trying to build up our collection of DVDs. We are always accepting donations. Paperbacks go into our free paperback exchange,” Hansen said. There will be a book discussion at 7 p.m. on May 8 on Snow Flower and The Secret Fan by Lisa See. Extra cop-ies are available for checkout. The library hours of operation are 9:30 a.m.–noon, 1– 8 p.m. Wednesdays, 1-8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays; 1-6:30 p.m., Mondays and closed on Tuesdays. There is a pre-school story hour at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays. For more information on the library, call Hansen at 53439. capable and strategically deployable brigade-sized formations that are designed to receive and integrate new technologies and equipment as soon as they become available. There has been a signi cant expansion and enhancement of Army special operations forces. We have and are continuing to increase Soldier and unit effectiveness and protection, as evidenced in our reset efforts and modernization plans. We have been developing a forward-looking doctrine that guides how we organize, train, ght and sustain our forces. Finally, and perhaps most importantly given that Soldiers are our centerpiece, the Army’s intellectual and cultural transformation is creating and maintaining a learning and adaptive force that will dramatically improve how we face future challenges. We are growing innovative Soldiers and pentathlete leaders through training and education built on recent combat experience. Literally, every aspect of today’s Army has been touched by change, with the exception of our enduring values. During my tenure as Army chief of staff, I have seen our Soldiers continuously demonstrate why they are our greatest strength. Their adherence to the warrior ethos is as inspiring as it is necessary. Their ability to learn and adapt as we ght an ever-changing enemy and transform to meet complex future threats is essential. Their dedication and optimism about our future are contagious. We must never forget that war is fought in the human dimension. Therefore, technology will always play an important but distinctly secondary role, because even our most sophisticated satellites and computers cannot get into the mind of the enemy, interact with local leaders, understand other societies and cultures, or make the instantaneous life or death decisions required to meet our 21st century challenges. Men and women with their “boots on the ground” are necessary to do all this. Let there be no mistake, ghting and adapting today, while transforming for an uncertain and complex future against traditional, irregular, catastrophic and disruptive threats is vital to America’s security. Although those in uniform have borne a disproportionate burden during the opening engagements of this long war, we are not ghting and cannot win this war alone. Defeating our enemies requires a shared understanding of the threat and a strategic consensus. It requires a concerted effort, utilizing all elements of power diplomatic, informational, military and economic. Finally, it requires a national commitment to recruit, train, equip and support those in uniform and their families, something that is a matter of priorities, not affordability. While prudence cautions against ignoring the effect of war weariness and our tendency toward cyclic national defense at-footedness, let me assure you that from my vantage point, our men and women in uniform continue to enjoy the admiration and appreciation of every American. This is re ected both in public opinion and the Congress. This support has been and will be critical as we continue to ght this long war. The road ahead will not be easy and the stakes could not be higher. While there is much we don’t know, I can say with certitude that sustained engagement of our Army will remain the norm, not the exception. Therefore, the Army must continue to demonstrate initiative, resilience and innovation at all levels. The Army must continue to adhere to its non-negotiable values and the warrior ethos. The Army must continue to learn and adapt. Yet despite challenges, everything I have seen as Army chief of staff encourages me. When recalled from retired rolls nearly four years ago, I stated that “as an American Soldier, I had never left your ranks.” It has been a great privilege to wear the uniform once again. I remain forever humbled by the courage, dedication and selfless service of those who preceded us and those who remain in service to our Country. I am proud of you. You are indeed Army Strong! God bless you and the United States Army.
