Kemem Editorial See WORKFORCE, Page 16Loyal, motivated workforce makes companies successful COMMENTARY2New Army chief of staff addresses challenges I know that there are some folks who have had pretty bad experiences working union jobs. In fact, after I wrote a commentary about unions a few issues ago, I received a not-so-friendly unsigned note saying that the writer would rather starve than work a union job again and that unions have done more harm than good. The writer stated that maybe unions were needed in the ‘old days’ but not so much now. Of course, the person who wrote that note has every right to his opinion. I respectfully disagree with him. I know that some unions have had ties to organized crime in the past and in some unions, corruption has been rampant. But, despite that, I would still hate to see American workers totally without representation or recourse in the event of a grievance or a wrong being done. There are many countries that have that system. Ask those workers how much they make and what conditions they work in. I can’t say that unions are relevant in today’s business climate, but I think it’s obvious that the assault on the American middle-class worker continues unabated. I give you as the latest evidence, the great American company, Circuit City. In case you haven’t heard, Circuit City has announced that it is ring almost 3,500 workers because they make too much money. How much is too much? From what I understand, it’s $8 to $10 per hour. Man, those folks are rolling in the dough aren’t they? Apparently Circuit City thinks they are. It plans to replace those ‘overpaid’ workers with people who will work for minimum wage (or just as cheap as they can get them). The Wall Street pundits and the business types call this a ‘bold’ move by Circuit City. I think I’d call it something else. I’ll leave it to your imagination what I’d call it. Circuit City isn’t getting rid of these people because they’re bad workers. It’s just that, darn it, they make all that money. I don’t know what planet Circuit City executives are living on, but it’s been a long time since anyone could say that $8 to $10 an hour was a lot of money. If cheaper workers are hired for lesser wages, I wonder if Circuit City will lower prices on the merchandise they sell? I wouldn’t hold my breath. I wonder if those Circuit City company executives thought this through. Will this move actually bene t Circuit City in the long run? What kind of employees will they get who are willing to settle for less money? Do they think that people working for minimum wage are going to be hyper-motivated to make the company successful? Why should employees strive to do a good job when they know they’ll never make a decent wage no matter what they do? Is it really good business to have non-motivated employees who could care less whether the company does well or not? If Circuit City gets rid of people just because they make ‘too much,’ who is next? Will the companies your son or daughter or father or mother work for decide to do the same thing? Would anyone be safe? Or would it just be game’s over, thanks for playing, we found somebody to work cheaper? Well, here’s a tip for employers—you get what you pay for. I know unions haven’t been the perfect answer to employee’s problems all the time and yes, unions have sometimes caused companies to lose productivity and sometimes lose money, too. Unions share much of the blame for some of the decline in American business and for their own demise as well, but a great part of it rests with bad management and the greed of CEOs and shareholders who don’t look to the future.By Gen. George W. Casey, Jr. U.S. Army chief of staffSoldiers, civilians, and families of the United States Army, I am extremely proud to be taking charge of an organization that is rightly regarded as the best in the world. I have watched the men and women of our Army in action for the past several years in the most demanding combat environment. I am proud of the courage, competence and commitment of our Soldiers and civilians both to the ideals that made this country great and to making a difference in our world.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 2007Former Multinational Forces Iraq commander takes reins at Pentagon 3 Casey becomes 36th Army chief of staff By Carmen L. GleasonAmerican Forces Press ServiceAfter nearly four decades of military service, Gen. Peter Schoomaker handed the reins of Army chief of staff to Gen. George W. Casey Jr., who most recently served as commander of Multinational Forces Iraq. Casey became the 36th Army chief of staff Tuesday. This was the second time Schoomaker has retired from Army life; he rst retired in 2000, but was asked to return in 2003 to serve in the Army’s top billet. “Every so often an institution needs a leader to remind it of its core values,” Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said of Schoomaker. “He’s done that by emphasizing the Warrior Ethos, focusing on physical tness and basic skills like marksmanship and hand-to-hand combat.” Gates said this has led to a renewal of timeless values like personal courage and pride in one’s physical and mental strength. “These are integral parts of the moral ber and institutional memory that have, throughout history, made our military so effective against our enemies and so respected by our friends,” the secretary said. Top defense of cials have credited Schoomaker with engineering the Army’s greatest reorganization since World War II, as well as revamping training protocol across the force, all while the Army was engaged in combat. The general led the transformation from a division-based to brigadebased Army that provided a fullymodular force that was not only lighter, but also more lethal, Gates said. The timetable to deploy brigades has become days or weeks, rather than months under Schoomaker’s leadership, he said. Gates said Schoomaker showed remarkable ability in leading individuals as well as institutions during his more than 30 years in the military. “He prepared our forces for the kinds of wars we are ghting and the ones we may be called upon to ght in the future,” Gates said. “It is a dif cult task in an environment that requires a ri eman and a smart bomb, an unconventional approach as well as conventional power.” As he said farewell to the Army, he took the opportunity to pass along words of advice to the many top military brass and political leaders in attendance. “I believe that this is the most dangerous period of my lifetime,” Schoomaker said. “We are still closer to the beginning than the end of this ght.” He told the audience the pace of the Army’s transformation and adaptation must accelerate, as well as the pace of con ict in Iraq. “Although the burden of the long war is slowly beginning to shift to a more balanced approach using all elements of our nation’s power,” he said, “the road ahead will not be easy, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.” The general, both the son and father of Soldiers, quoted former Army Chief of Staff Gen. Creighton Abrams as saying, “People are not in the Army, they are the Army.” “My four years as Army chief have only af rmed that Soldiers are our greatest strength because war is fought in human dimensions, and the men and women both in and out of uniform who are willing to put their boots on the ground are absolutely essential,” he said. Schoomaker said that while the technology of the Army has changed in its nearly 232-year history, the dedication to duty, patriotism and steely-eyed resolve of its Soldiers has not. “I have looked into the eyes of today’s warriors, and I am proud to report that they continue to exceed every expectation for courage, dedication and sel ess service,” he said. “They are the heart of all we do; they are our future.” “Our Army is strong today and every Soldier is a warrior because of your vision and leadership,” Casey told Schoomaker during the ceremony. Casey, who has spent 30 months as the commander of forces in Iraq, said that U.S. combat veterans have been baptized by re and blood, but they have come out as strong as steel. He said he takes great pride in now being their leader. He said the next decade will likely be one of persistent con ict. “We’ve been at war for over ve years, ghting for our freedom, our security and our future as a nation,” Casey said. “We have made hard sacri ces, and we will be called on to make more.” Casey said the quality of the men and women of the Army is the best he’s seen in his 36 years of service. “The remarkable men and women of our all-volunteer force, supported by their families, are a national treasure and will be cared for accordingly,” he said. He added that Soldiers’ care and quality of life should be commensurate with the magni cent service they render the American people. “I want to renew my personal commitment to ensure these standards are met and maintained for our Soldiers, civilians and their families,” Casey said. U.S. Army Gen. George W. Casey swears in as the 36th Army chief of staff following the change of responsibility ceremony Tuesday at Ft. Myer, Va. Casey took over as chief of staff from Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker in a ceremony hosted by Pete Geren, acting secretary of the Army Defense Department. (Photo by Cherie A. Thurlby)

Saturday, April 14, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Visit gives 230 Sailors chance for ‘vacation’ USS Rentz makes liberty call on KwajaleinCmdr. George Snavely Rentz was a Presbyterian minister and U.S. Navy chaplain for whom the USS Rentz was named. (U.S. Navy photo) Seaman Adam Garza, left, and Seaman Michael Dale needle gunning on the foc’sle of the USS Rentz. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)The Rentz carries one Vulcan Phalanx Close In Weapons System. By Nell DrumhellerEditorThe USS Rentz (FFG 46), an Oliver Hazard Perry (FFG-7) class guided missile frigate, docked at Kwajalein Thursday and departed today on its way to its home port in San Diego. Kwajalein was a liberty port for the crew of more than 230 Sailors, and many spent several hours investigating all that Kwajalein has to offer. “What people want to do on vacation is what Sailors look for in a port,” said Lt. j.g. Sean Richards, the Rentz ’ training of cer who had command duty of cer responsibilities on Friday. While the community members of Kwajalein, who may have become immune to the white sands and clear waters, may not see this island as a vacation destination, the Sailors from the Rentz did. “We like to experience local cultures, meet the local people,” Richards said. The Rentz was four days out of Guam when it got to Kwajalein. However, Guam was a working port, so most of the crew was onboard working when the boat was docked. The Rentz has been out to sea for ve and a half months, providing support to Joint Task Force 515 in waters off the Republic of the Philippines. JTF 515 is engaged in anti-terrorism operations in the Western Paci c. The Rentz was assigned to general locations and moved around quite a bit, according to Richards. “We were a presence,” Richards said. Sailors from the Rentz complete community relations projects whenever possible when they are in port. “We get volunteers for the projects,” Richards said. He listed projects the Sailors did in the past to include building schools, painting senior citizens’ homes, etc. He said the Sailors like to help when they can. When the Kwajalein community learned that the Rentz was on its way, volunteers signed up to make the Sailors feel welcome. Community members took time off from work to take Sailors shing, sailing, diving and gol ng. The Rentz was named for Commander George Snavely Rentz, a Presbyterian minister and U.S. Navy chaplain. Rentz, the chaplain, pastured in churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for eight years, following the entry of the United States in World War I. He was appointed acting chaplain with the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade and was assigned to the 11th Regiment of Marines in France until 1919. He attained the rank of commander in 1924. He was serving aboard the USS Houston in 1942 when in underwent a severe attack. According to reports, Rentz spurned cover and circulated among the crew of the anti-aircraft battery, encouraging them. It was noted by an of cer who crewed at the guns “... saw this man of God walking fearlessly among them, they no longer felt alone. ” Houston took a direct hit that disabled turret III and killed 48 men. Less than a month later, Houston was in the Battle of Java Sea with the Australian light cruiser HMAS Perth Both ships were outnumbered by a Japanese troop convoy, but they persisted in an ensuing melee of re, confusing a Japanese destroyer’s re and spread of torpedoes that passed the allied cruisers and caused four Japanese troopships close inshore to sink. The Japanese attack sunk both allied ships. It was during the abandonment of Houston that Rentz entered the water and attained partial safety along with other crew members on a spare main oat of one Houston’s lost planes. He attempted to relinquish his space and his life jacket to wounded survivors nearby, “You men are young, I have lived the major part and I am willing to go,” he said. He uplifted his fellow Sailors with prayers and song until, ultimately, he placed his lifejacket near a wounded Sailor who did not have one, and Rentz slipped away into the sea on the morning of March 1, 1942. He was awarded posthumously the Navy Cross.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 2007 5Safety, budget concerns, future of range are topics of discussion at Roi town hall meeting All hands meeting Lt. Col. Justin Hirniak, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Reagan Test Site commander and John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president hold a Roi town hall meeting Wednesday. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)“We need to make some adjustments. We’re trying to determine what is mission critical. Let’s try some prudent measures to make it to the July 1 deadline. We are working very, very hard as to what this means to each functional area. Let’s do what’s right until we get to that point. We’re trying to avoid layoffs; I think we can, but I can’t make any promises.” — John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president By Nell DrumhellerEditorLt. Col. Justin Hirniak, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Reagan Test Site commander and John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president, held an all-hands meeting on Roi-Namur Wednesday. Hirniak and Pickler both praised the community on Roi-Namur for its efforts in working and living safely. He thanked the audience members for their support of the SpaceX mission. He said SpaceX is planning another launch in the August-September time frame, with a subsequent launch not long after that. Hirniak congratulated the workers on Roi-Namur, “There’s a lot of hard work happening here,” he said. He added that everyone was doing more with less. “I’m proud of what you’ve done.” He said that there were many times when he was faced with a problem that “you guys gured it out.” Hirniak said he will be moving back to the states in July. His replacement, Lt. Col. Harold A. Buhl, will visit USAKA/RTS next week. Hirniak said he will take him to Roi-Namur. “I will bring him up here to meet the faces behind the infrastructure.” Pickler spoke to the group and thanked them for what he described as a ‘great news story.’ “We learned we [KRS] had been extended two years” as the USAKA/ RTS contractor. He added that the recent award fee period scores were the highest KRS has recorded on this project. “We are looking for a letter of intent to extend the contract for an additional three years. Why? Because you are doing exceedingly well,” he said. He said a team from KRS had been sequestered for the better part of two months working on a transition plan in response to the customer’s [USAKA] request. “We submitted a plan on March 12. It has been briefed to SMDC [Space and Missile Defense Command] leaders. We have had no feedback. We’ll let you know when we have some answers,” he said. In the meantime, he urged employees not to make decisions based on what they may have heard about the content of the report, because it does not represent any decisions about the future of USAKA/RTS programs. He said that some community members have expressed concerns about the future of Kwajalein. “We’re here; we could be here potentially until 2018,” he said. “Money could be an issue, but we’ll deal with that as it happens.” He added that KRS has been instructed to avoid or defer discretionary spending pending resolution of the federal defense budget. “You know what is going on between the president and Congress. Someone has to pay the bill for the Global War on Terror. Right now they are at an impasse.” He said, “We had to take on this year’s funding. We’ve been told we will be repaid not later than July 1. We have enough money to last until just short of that. How long can the money from scal year 07 last? We’re working on those numbers.” He said, “We need to make some adjustments. We’re trying to determine what is mission critical. Let’s try some prudent measures to make it to the July 1 deadline. We are working very, very hard as to what this means to each functional area. Let’s do what’s right until we get to that point. We’re trying to avoid layoffs; I think we can, but I can’t make any promises.” On another issue, Pickler said that KRS is investigating ways to make health insurance more affordable. “We’re starting early on the FY08 budget to see if we can adjust the fringe [bene t pay] rate. We’re taking this on one bite at a time.” An audience member thanked Pickler for KRS’ scheduling a special Metro ight on Sunday to provide Roi-Namur residents transportation to Kwajalein to participate in the Spring Music Festival. A question for Hirniak from the audience pertained to the ground-based radar prototype on Kwajalein. “Right now it’s in caretaker status,” Hirniak said. He added that a delegation, including representatives from the U.S. Missile Defense Agency and the Czech Republic government, will be on Kwajalein next week touring the facility. “MDA owns it,” he said, adding that it was up to that agency to make a decision about the future of the GBRP.

Saturday, April 14, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Change applies to Afghanistan, Horn of Africa, Middle East ARMY, from Page 2 Gates extends Iraq tours to 15 monthswhat is best about America. You and your families carry a heavy burden in today’s war, with a hard road ahead. Your willingness to sacri ce to build a better future for others and to preserve our way of life is a great strength of our nation. In every generation, when faced with dif cult challenges, Americans have risen to the occasion. Today, such heroes ll the Army’s ranks. It is your efforts that will make victory possible. We are locked in a war against a global extremist network that is xed on defeating the United States and destroying our way of life. This foe will not go away nor will they give up easily, and the next decade will likely be one of persistent con ict. At stake are the power of our values and our civilization, exempli ed by the promise of America, to confront and defeat the menace of extremist terrorists. At stake is whether the authority of those who treasure the rights of free individuals will stand rm against the ruthless and pitiless men who wantonly slay the defenseless. At stake is whether the future will be framed by the individual freedoms we hold so dear or dominated by a demented form of extremism. At stake is whether we will continue to expand freedom, opportunity, and decency for those who thirst for it, or let fall the darkness of extremism and terror. We have been at war for over ve years, ghting for our freedom, our security and our future as a nation. We have made hard sacri ces. There will be more. Faced with such a long and dif cult struggle, it is useful to remind ourselves that the Army exists to eld forces for victory. We are in this war to win. We have fought this way since 1775. We always will. As Soldiers, we will lead the nation to victory over this enemy. Our combat veterans know well the meaning of “Army Strong.” They have been “baptized in re and blood, and they have come out as steel.” That steel endures. Our Warrior Ethos has it right: I will always place the mission rst. I will never quit. I will never accept defeat. I will never leave a fallen comrade. Seldom in our history have Soldiers faced greater challenges. We serve at a time when the stakes for our nation and our way of life are high, and the demands on our force signi cant. We will continue to re ect the very best of our nation by defeating the enemies of freedom and the proponents of terror, by defending our homeland, and by assisting our nation to build a better future for coming generations. I could not be more proud to be a Soldier today and to stand shoulderto-shoulder with you and your families during this time of great danger and uncertainty. Together we are and always will be, Army strong. By Jim Garamone American Forces Press ServiceAll Soldiers in the U.S. Central Command area of operations will serve 15-month tours in the region beginning immediately, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates announced today. “Effective immediately, active Army units now in the Central Command area of responsibility and those headed there will deploy for not more than 15 months and return home for not less than 12 months,” Gates said, during a Pentagon news conference. This policy applies to all active duty Army units with the exception of two brigades currently in Iraq that have already been extended to 16 months. The policy does not apply to Marine Corps, Navy or Air Force units serving in Central Command. It also does not apply to Army National Guard or Army Reserve units deployed to the region. The 15-month tour applies to active duty Soldiers serving in Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa and all the countries in the region. U.S. Central Command stretches from Kenya to Kazakhstan and Egypt to Pakistan. Soldiers will receive an extra $1,000 a month for each month or portion of the month that they serve longer than 12 months, Gates said. Gates called this policy an “interim change.” The goal for active duty units is 12 months deployed followed by 12 months at home station. Ultimately, the Army would like to see Soldiers deployed for 12 months and home for 24 months. “My objective was to set clear guidelines that our commanders, troops and their families could use in determining how future rotations in support of the Global War on Terror would affect them,” Gates said. Upon taking of ce in December 2006, Gates learned that even sustaining the level of deployed Army forces needed before surging ve brigades into Iraq would require active duty units to ow into Iraq before they had spent a full 12 months at home. He said this reality was a signi cant factor in his decision to recommend to President Bush that defense of cials increase the size of the Army and Marine Corps over the next ve years by 62,000 Soldiers and 27,000 Marines. The deployment change is intended to provide better clarity, predictability and sustainability in how the Defense Department deploys active duty Army forces, Gates said. He said the changes produce clear, realistic, executable, and long-term policy goals to guide the deployment of active duty forces. The change will also allow the Army to support the 20-brigade goal of the surge as long as it is needed, he said. “Without this action we would have had to deploy ve Army active duty brigades sooner than the 12-month at home goal,” Gates said. “I believe it is fairer to all Soldiers that all share the burden equally.” The secretary said he realizes his decision will ask a lot of Army troops and their families. “We are deeply grateful for the service and sacri ce of our men and women in uniform and their commitment to accomplishing our mission,” he said. “In the end, this new approach will better allow the Army to better support the war effort while providing a more predictable and dependable deployment schedule for our Soldiers and their families.”

Dja vu Adrenaline-loving director Tony Scott teams with iconic action producer Jerry Bruckheimer for this high ung sci action thriller concerning a New Orleans-based maverick ATF agent named Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) who is brought in on a top-secret government program to catch the terrorist (Jim Caviezel) responsible for a ferry bombing that kills hundreds. Able to do what most law enforcement of cers only dream of, Carlin is now able to look back in time at the perpetrator’s movements, and at the life of the innocent woman whose death would set the events into motion. Carlin’s instincts tell him that something is amiss, however, and while the government agent who tapped him for the job (Val Kilmer) and the team of ultra-cool scientists who run the project (Adam Goldberg, Erika Alexander) tell him one story about the quantum physics behind this marvel of technology, the hotshot agent suspects that there is a greater power at their ngertips.

These companies include the employees in decision-making and employees feel they have a big stake in the success of the company. Many of the businesses operating in that manner are foreign-owned and seem to have gured out that a loyal and motivated workforce is one of their most valuable assets. They take the ‘long view’ of business and look to the future. The most notable of these companies are several foreign car manufacturers that operate with the future and their workforce in mind. They have plants in the United States with American workers and nobody has to be told how incredibly pro table they are. Could they be so successful not just because of sound business practices, but because they also have the most loyal employees on earth? It seems to me that Circuit City, like many American companies, isn’t taking the long view. They are after the ‘now’ money. But ‘now’ goes by pretty quickly and if plans haven’t been made for tomorrow, many companies will nd themselves in trouble in the long run. Isn’t that bad management? Just this Thursday, CitiGroup Bank announced the layoff of 17,000 employees because the company is under pressure from shareholders to get the stock price up. Analysts say this will save money in the short term but will signi cantly slow the company’s long term growth. Like I said, they just see the ‘now’ money. It’s hard for employees to have warm fuzzies about the company they work for when they know they are expendable for the sake of a few more bucks on the stock price. But if workers do feel loyalty for their employer and feel that their efforts are appreciated and that they are being treated fairly, they are motivated to do their jobs exceedingly well and help the company grow and prosper. As the American middle class struggles to maintain its standard of living and American business struggles to compete in the world of globalization, there are challenges like never before facing our country. The time is gone when American companies and American labor can continue to be adversarial. Only by nding common ground and working together will business and workers have any chance for a good tomorrow out of today’s business environment.
