Saturday, Dec. 22, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2To emergency medical technicians Christina Sylvester, Matthew Chapman, Scott Lackey and Michelle Barnett for being so pleasant and patient with a resident in a very clumsy state. Have a wonderful holiday season. The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. Contents of The Hourglass are not necessarily T h e K w a j a l e i n H o u r g l a s s The Kwajalein Hourglass of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA.

I had to have scheduled surgery last week and the care that I received was exceptional to say the least, I know that it is hard to call surgery pleasant but the care I received made it feel that way, thanks again for going the extra mile. To the community, thank you for all of your prayers, cards and support. — Bob GreeneResident thanks hospital staffThanks to the ‘special readers’ who volunteered their time to read to the students at the elementary school. Jane Sholar, Dental Clinic workers Jan Budo and Judy Shimamoto, Steve Beuby, Bennie Kirk, who is better known as U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll’s Santa’s elf, Kwajalein Police Department’s nest, Lt. Mike Larsen and Beth Wiggins. A special thanks to the Kwajalein Fire Department, Christina Sylvester, Shannon LaRene, Kelly Special readers help elementary school reach reading goalDuring, Stephanie Smith, Michelle Barnett and Caroline Mills. These volunteers help us reach our accreditation goal for reading. — Deb Johnson, George Seitz Elementary School This year it’s my turn. When Kathy Ann and I were rst married we bought a bunch of cheap ornaments at the local discount store to decorate our very rst Christmas tree. We still have most of the fancy colored balls and small pretty bells. We also have a non-descript decoration that ts on top of the tree. It looks sort of a like a long bright red teardrop without any religious meaning at all. It has topped every tree since then. When our girls were old enough to help decorate the tree without knocking it over, they started taking turns being the one to nish our work by placing this simple topper on our tree. The meaning and signi cance of this simple piece of plastic has been painted on layer after layer, year after year as each girl proudly puts it in place. Once they went off to college, I took over this most honored tradition. This week they will come home to a fully adorned tree and realize that each year Christmas changes. This will be the last Christmas with just the four of us. My daughter, Kelly, gets married this summer and she and Ryan plan to visit next year as husband and wife. She told me they could get a vacation trailer. I should tell her that we don’t have vacation trailers anymore. She can stay in her room and Ryan can sleep in a tent in the backyard. No, I wouldn’t do that. He can sleep inside on the couch. Even as Christmas changes, it also stays the same. Every year it is time for Christians around the world to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I always enjoy a candlelight Christmas Eve service, singing Silent Night and Joy to the World gathering with family and reconnecting with friends around the world. All of this and so much more make Christmas a very special holiday. This Christmas will bring change for all of us; that’s inevitable. It should also remind each us of that which remains the same; the joy and gift of living, the love of family and the love of our God. We will enjoy the best of yesterday and look for the goodness in tomorrow. This is a season that illuminates what is most important in our lives. Even so, I expect next year Christmas will change again. I just might let Kathy Ann put the topper on the tree.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 22, 2007 3 M a i l h a n d l e r s r u s h t o g e t h o l i d a y p a c k a g e s t o t r o o p s Mail handlers rush to get holiday packages to troops B u s h t h a n k s t r o o p s i n h o l i d a y m e s s a g e Bush thanks troops in holiday messageAmerican Forces Press ServiceIn his annual holiday message Friday, President George W. Bush thanked servicemembers and their families for their sacri ces. “Our nation is thankful for the many sacrifices you and your families make every day. During the holidays and throughout the coming year, we ask the Almighty to bestow His protection and care on you and your loved ones. We pray for your safety and for liberty, justice, and peace on Earth,” Bush’s message, released today, reads. He also said the nation owes servicemembers and their families a debt of gratitude for their service. “In this season of giving, we remember our duty to others, and we see that sense of duty ful lled in the men and women who wear our nation’s uniform. Our country owes you a debt of gratitude for your courage and resolve to serve the cause of peace,” Bush said. “Americans are proud of your dedicated service, and I am proud to be the commander in chief of the greatest force for freedom in the history of the world.” The president spent part Dec. 20 visiting troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center here. He visited injured soldiers in their wards, passing along his well wishes and presenting some with Purple Heart Medals. He said this month has the lowest number of patients admitted since 2002. “Every time I come to a facility like this, I count my blessings, and one of the great blessings is to be the president of a country that produces such brave men and women,” Bush said during his visit. By Spc. Ben Hutto, USAAmerican Forces Press Service While most soldiers are tucked in their beds for the night, a mail handler with 461st Human Resource Battalion, out of Decatur, Ga., is waiting for the mail to arriveWe started getting a spike in mail at the end of October,” explained Army Spc. Tony Rogers, from Tunnel Hill, Ga. “We went from getting four or ve (shipping containers) of mail a week to over 10 a week. I try to be there when the trucks arrive to make sure everything goes smoothly. We don’t want any mix-ups that would cause a soldier not to get mail.” The trucks normally arrive from Baghdad between 1:30 and 2 a.m. Four hours later, Rogers arrives to work at 6 a.m. to sort the mail. “I don’t mind,” he said. “These packages are a big morale boost for the soldiers. I know how important it is for soldiers to be able to stay in touch with their families back home. It is worth it to see a soldier get a package and get excited. The holidays are tough, and anything I can do to cheer these guys up is important.” Army Pfc. Cassie Durkin, from Whitewater, Wis., a human resource specialist for 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, is a brigade staff mail handler. “It has really been busy here lately,” she said. “We used to get mail once or twice a week, but it has been coming in every day lately. People are trying to get their loved ones packages and cards for the holidays, but it’s a lot.” Durkin arrives at 6 a.m. with the other mail handlers to sort through each shipping container and separate letters and packages by unit. “We work for three hours straight normally,” she said. “There is a lot of detail that goes into it, because we have to read every address and make sure that each package gets put in with the right section.” Durkin explained that her rst three hours of the day are just the beginning. “Of cial mail call starts at 9:30 a.m. and lasts until 2 p.m., but we haven’t been getting out until 6 or 7 p.m. most days,” she said. “We stay as late as we need to. We make sure that everyone has a chance to get their mail. A lot of people have missions that keep them from coming during of cial hours so we stay and help them out.” It is a demanding job, but Durkin said she enjoys it. “It can be very tiring, but I’m happy to help people out,” she said. “I personally try to help out people by hand delivering what I can, especially people that I know have a lot on their plate and can’t get down here. Someone else’s happiness really makes the job worth it. I really enjoy seeing people get something special from home. It’s tough when you see soldiers getting antsy because a package they are expecting hasn’t arrived yet. I try and get everyone their packages so they don’t have to go through that.” As Christmas gets closer, Durkin said, mail is a critical part of mission effectiveness. “It is the most important thing for the soldiers’ morale right now,” she said. “Presents, Christmas cards, homemade cookies and pictures are all pieces of home that soldiers out here need. If I can help with that, it’s a good thing.” Army Pfc. Cassie Durkin, from Whitewater, Wis., a human resource specialist for 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, sorts packages at Forward Operating Base Hammer, Iraq, Dec. 14.

C h r i s t m a s o n C a r l o s Christmas on Carlos By Nell DrumhellerEditorThis was the 15th year that children from Kwajalein have donated gifts, food and their time to brighten the Christmas of children on Carlos Island. There are approximately 50 children on Carlos. Ric Fullerton and Christi Davis, teachers at Kwajalein Junior and Senior High School, served as faculty advisors for the program that is sponsored by the Marshall Island Club. Wednesday morning a boatload of young people gathered at the Dock Security Checkpoint, ready to board the catamaran Pvt. Anderson and head to Carlos. They formed a human chain, loading box after wrapped box conveying gifts for the day. The 15-minute cruise was lled with chatter and a quick rehearsal of “Rudolph the Red-Beaked Parrot Fish.” A handful of children waited at the dock when the catamaran arrived. The students from Kwajalein unloaded their boxes and headed to the center of the Carlos children entertain the crowd with some enthusiastic dancing.

Saturday, Dec. 22, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Marshallese celebrate season with songs, dances By Nell DrumhellerEditorhe 2007 Christmas in the Marshall Islands presentation was held at the Corlett Recreation Center Monday night. The evening’s events included performances by two groups, one from Ebeye and one primarily from Kwajalein. The dances and songs are performed as a tribute and remembrance of Christian missionaries bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the islands. Sailors and missionaries from Northeastern United States, where Christmases are icy, windy snowbound affairs, introduced Christmas to the people of the Marshall Islands in 1857. In the years since 1857 the Marshallese made the season their own, developing traditions which shine with the loving spirit of these people. This traditional event featured dancing and singing performances. Different groups from Ebeye perform each year. “An invitation is sent to Leiroj Seagul Kabua James, and she determines who gets invited to perform,” explained Cris Lindborg, director Kwajalein’s Marshallese Cultural Center. These programs would not be possible without the support of Ebeye’s traditional leaders, the Kabua family. The rst group was from Ebeye and had performers of all ages, but primarily young people. Dressed in red shirts and black skirts or slacks, the performers entertained the crowded gymnasium for more than The Ebeye Jebta takes the oor Monday evening to perform traditional dances during the Christmas in the Marshall Islands celebration at the Corlett Recreation Center gym.

Next came the jebta from Kwajalein. “We’ve had the local Kwajalein-USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] jebta under Noda’s [Lojkar] guidance perform every year since we started,” Lindborg said. This group, made up of people who live and or work on Kwajalein, was dressed in matching bright green out ts. The performances ended with the entertainers tossing candy and goodies into the crowd. The jebtas are competitions between groups in the community; no prizes are awarded other than personal satisfaction.

Jeff Klein, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations of cer, represented USAKA Commander Col. Stevenson Reed at the ceremony. Local leaders welcomed the people from Kwajalein and then the activities began. Band members, led by student Justin DeCoster, performed several songs; a Christmas tree was set up and an impromptu game of volleyball began. It was time for the day’s highlight: Santa arrived. Dressed in the traditional red and white, he greeted young people and old alike, and then settled in to hand out some gifts. Each family on Carlos received a box containing food stuffs and each child met with Santa, received gifts and had his or her photo taken with the jolly man from the North. A group of young men from Carlos performed an athletic and entertaining dance routine and then the young people from both islands played games and enjoyed one another. Before long it was time for the day to end. The students from Kwajalein wondered back to the boat, the children on Carlos had a chance to investigate their early Christmas gifts.

Adults must wear conservative clothing. Women should wear loose tting shirts that cover their shoulders and dresses or skirts that cover their knees. Men can wear shorts, but only if they arenÂ’t planning on attending a formal or church gathering. Men should wear long pants if they plan to enter a church. The dress codes arenÂ’t Marshallese laws, but long-followed cultural traditions and not complying with them would be considered offensive by citizens and traditional leaders of our host nation.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued his holiday message Tuesday, thanking servicemembers and families for their service and asking that others remember their sacri ces. “I thank each of you for your dedicated service as you defend our national interests around the world. Whether on the ground, in the air, on the sea, or under it, you are making life better and safer for millions of people. Please know you have your nation’s deepest gratitude,” the statement from Navy Adm. Michael G. Mullen reads. “As we count our many blessings, let us never forget our brothers and sisters in harm’s way and the families with empty seats at their holiday tables. Theirs is the sacri ce, the great and noble service, that allows our comfort and our freedom this season. Reach out to them if you can. Let them know they are remembered,” Mullen wrote. The chairman is this week traveling with the 2007 USO holiday tour on the 15-stop, seven-country tour thanking the forward deployed troops for their sacri ce and service. With Christmas a week away, Mullen passed along his holiday greetings in person during a stop in Kuwait yesterday. “I’d like to express my appreciation for what you do, not just for the nation, but for the world,” he said. “You are making a big difference in a very challenging part of the world.” Mullen said he knows the holidays are a hard time to be away from family. “We know that, and we keep them in our thoughts and prayers, and we hope we can bring a little cheer during this holiday season for you as you serve on this deployment,” he said.“You could not be as successful on this deployment without the support of those families, and we’re extremely grateful for all the things that they do to make your service possible.” Chairman issues holiday messageAmerican Forces Press Service
