President George W. Bush declared on that fateful night in 2001: “A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.” And, indeed, Army Reserve Soldiers immediately responded, and continue to ful ll the mission to keep our nation free and safe. In fact, more than 164,000 warrior citizens serve our nation with honor and distinction in the war on terrorism; while some 26,000 Army Reserve Soldiers perform homeland defense missions and other critical operations around the globe. I commend the men and women in uniform and their Families who make immeasurable sacri ces to protect our Nation’s security and advance democracy around the world. Today in particular, we pause to honor all the innocent victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks and the 162 fallen Army Reserve Soldiers who are a constant reminder of why we continue our auspicious mission. It is my great privilege to represent the United States Army Reserve at the dedication ceremony of the Pentagon Memorial, a tting and lasting tribute to the 184 enlisted and civilian victims of the attack on the Pentagon.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, Sept. 12, 2008 3Children on Ebadon receive gifts during the Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club Outer Island Christmas Drop.By Lauren TraweekMede Kirijmoj! ThatÂ’s how you say Merry Christmas in Marshallese. ItÂ’s early but itÂ’s time to start thinking about the annual Outer Island Christmas Drop. Every year the Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club gathers toys, clothing, food, educational items, toiletries and medical supplies to provide to children on Ebadon and Majetto, the most far-away islands in the atoll. Those islands are cutoff from the outside world except for a once-a-month supply boat. The children on Ebadon and Majetto are thrilled to receive their own backpack lled with generosity each year. YYWC cannot receive fund-raising materials through Kwajalein Post Of ce due to postal regulations. All items to be used in fund-raising activities must be hand-carried in by visitors and returning residents, or shipped to California and brought by barge. This not only costs the YYWC precious resources that could be used for the children, but causes a time delay of up to three weeks. Jimmy Matsunaga, Kwajalein Range Services shipping guru, met with the YYWC and has been very helpful in overcoming this obstacle in the process. Because he needs to plan each container, he should be noti ed by e-mail of each box coming to Kwajalein at: James.Matsunaga@s for approval. Nothing can be shipped without his approval. No alcoholic beverages, tobacco or HAZMAT items can be sent. Let Matsunaga know it is for the YYWC and the approximate size of the shipment and from whom itÂ’s coming. The boxes must be clearly marked YYWC and sent c/o KRS, 3200 Regatta Blvd., Richmond, CA 94804. Boxes must be received in Richmond by Sept. 19 for the Oct. 22 barge; Oct. 2 for the Nov. 5 barge; Oct. 15 for the Nov. 19 barge and by Oct. 29 for the Dec. 3 barge.The YYWC will pay the shipping costs. However, we would greatly appreciate the senders removing all extraneous packaging such as blister packs, bubble wrap and boxes. Our weight is limited so we remove it ourselves before the drop anyway. While KRS doesnÂ’t charge by the pound, the smaller the box the better! That is something to stress to any shippers whom you are using if ordering by mail. If this all seems too complicated, we always welcome cash donations, which go a long way for our thrifty co-chairs and volunteers. They are Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club begins preparing for Christmas Drop to Ebadon and Majettoalways on the prowl for good deals online and while off-island. Meg Dolan can be reached at 52843 or e-mailed at She can advise which age groups need what items. Because she has such broad, wonderful shoulders, she also agreed to chair the Silent Basket Auction/Wine and Cheese event on Nov.16, in the multi-purpose room. The Silent Basket Auction donated 60 percent of its proceeds last year to the Outer Island Christmas Drop. This annual event always sells out and generates a feeding frenzy of pre-holiday competitive purchasing that often leaves the participants breathless. Catered dinners, handmade jewelry, exotic items from Bali and many more creative baskets are featured with a wine bar and a cheese buffet. If you have an idea for a basket or want to participate in any way, contact Meg for ideas. The deadline for baskets is Nov. 1, so she can prepare the auction catalogue. This year, with a little luck, a lot of preplanning and if we hold our collective mouths just right, the children in Ebadon and Majetto really can say Mede Kirimoj!File photo Items tor donation such as educational materials, backpacks, etc. going to schools or other recipients will be accepted by the post of ce. The customs form on packages must be marked DONATION. Any items to be used for fund-raising such as for the YYWC Silent Auction baskets, or any commercial function where money is exchanged, cannot be accepted through the post of ce and must be shipped to Kwajalein and Roi on the barge.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, Sept. 12, 2008 5Nation was stunned by terror attacks, shocked at large number of lives lostBy Dan AdlerMedia ManagerWhere were you on September 11, 2001 at approximately 8:45 a.m.? Americans remember hearing the shocking news of two commercial jetliners crashing into the World Trade Center twin towers and, as they watched in horror, they learned that yet another plane had crashed into the Pentagon and one more in a eld in Pennsylvania. As the nation watched the TV images of the burning buildings, people jumping from the towers and re ghters and police struggling to rescue survivors, the American ag sprouted from homes and buildings and it became the emblem to unify a nation. As the country realized the magnitude of the destruction, grief turned to anger and the Global War on Terror was declared. Now, as the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 tragedy approaches, Americans are once again reminded of the victims and heroes who lost their lives in the worst attack on the United States mainland in history. The images of people frantically searching for loved ones, the re ghters digging through the rubble to nd the bodies of their comrades, the photos of the missing, and so many more images of that day will never be forgotten.As smoke pours from the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, KwajaleinÂ’s force protection is raised to Delta and residents hold a candlelight service for the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Friday, Sept. 12, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 A n gl ers compe t e i n L a b or D a y T ournamen t Hanapa’a — Fish OnBy Vanessa K. Peeden, USAKA Public Affairs Of cerThe 11th Annual Kwajalein Hanapa’a Labor Day Fun Fishing Tournament was held Aug. 31-Sept. 1, starting at the Small Boat Marina. Being a newcomer to the Kwaj experience, I jumped at an invitation to participate and got ready for my rst Kwajalein fun shing tournament experience. I would sh on day two. The rst thing I did was research the word ‘Hanapa’a’ on the Internet. Never trust everything you nd on the net. I found it was a company that does charter shing trips for people, a lounge in Hawaii, and a street in Albuquerque, NM. Now why would Kwaj name their tournament that? Then I found a website that said it was Hawaiian for ‘got sh.’ That made sense and I felt enlightened. I gured it would also be helpful to familiarize myself with the categories and rules before the tournament. So I carefully read the category information. It stated that winners with the largest and smallest sh in each of the following categories would be placed in a lottery for the tournament grand prize: The categories were: • Bill sh – blue marlin • Black marlin, sail sh and tuna • Yellow n and bigeye • Ono • Other tuna: aku, kawakawa, dogtooth tuna • Reef runner: rainbow runner, ulua, uku, snappers, groupers, barracuda and aggregate. Prizes would also be awarded for: grand prize, biggest sh, aggregate, captain, queen, mental person, and slave. The rules were easy to follow: • Hours were 8 12:45 p.m., unless disquali ed • Crews have to have at least one person of the opposite sex on their crew • No bottom shing or net shing; Crews start out for the Hanapa’a shing tournament Left to right, Johnny Ysagiurre, Monica McGatha, Stephanie Helms and Ron Howard show off their 45.3-pound dog sh tuna, which was the largest sh caught in the tournament.Photo by Ron Tsubamoto Photo by Ron Tsubamoto


The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, Sept. 12, 2008See HANAPA’A, Page 87the nurse sharks. Day two started with seven boats going out. The day was overcast and threatened rain. At this point in the competition, there were no entries in the bill sh, tuna, or ono categories. I don’t know different species of sh, but surely there were enough species that our boat would get something. I was really looking forward to being able to yell Hanapa’a. I gured it would be the same thrill as yelling Bingo. The jobs of captain and queen on the boat were easy to gure out. I’m still not sure what the mental person’s job was, but everyone on our boat quali ed as slave. Working the lines, reeling in and letting out lines, changing lures, driving the boat, watching for bird piles, are all work, and everyone had to pull together. As it turns out, the captain of the boat lls out a position title for each of his or her crew. I really think the captain of our boat put slave by all our names. Of the seven boats that went out on day two, six boats Play fair. • Do not give false reports on the radio as to the whereabouts of the bird piles, where the sh are feeding, false sightings of sail sh, logs in the water, etc. • Weigh-ins are conducted at the small boat marina starting at 12:30 p.m. Very detailed information was given about the weigh-ins, since this is where the competition ends and sh category winners are decided. The detailed rules included the following: (a) all weighed-in sh must be whole and not bitten. They must not be mutilated by sharks, other predators, or even the mental guy. Any sh missing a chunk of meat is disquali ed; (b) A sh can only be a quali ed weigh-in for one category. If a sh is submitted for a particular category but does not win in that category, then it will be counted in the total aggregate; (c) Only sh caught during the shing period quali es for weigh-in. Do not sneak frozen sh on your boat in the morning for weighin later that day after it’s thawed out; (d) Do not load your sh with sand, lead, nuts and bolts before weigh in. This is an automatic disquali cation. And remember to take the lure off the sh, as well as any ice cubes. So, I was prepared. I knew what Hanapa’a meant. I knew the categories and the rules. On the rst day of the tournament I was sharing my new found knowledge with the Kwaj old-timers when they quickly corrected me and said Hanapa’a meant ‘ sh on’ and winked at each other over my naivety. Alright, so I got my rst lesson of the shing tournament on word usage. Day one of the competition saw six boats leave. It was a beautiful, sunny day supposed to be good for shing. I heard there were lots of cries of Hanapa’a throughout the morning. However, one boat came back skunked — an affectionate term for having caught no sh. That crew didn’t even go to the weigh-in area. I asked if there was a skunk award and was told there used to be a skunk passed around each year, but some team had lost it or shredded it. I’m not sure which — you know how shermen tell tall tales. Many Kwajalein residents turned out to see the catches. The other boats had several sh in different categories. By the end of the rst day’s weigh-in, the categories of other tuna and reef runner had entries from the boats. Of special note was Captain Bernie Delgado’s crew which caught a 21.8-pound aku that was less than two pounds less than the Kwajalein record. After the catches were weighed, it was time for cleaning the sh. The crews took turns and once again got to see the slaves work. It was also easy to spot the Captain, Queen, and mental person on each crew. Several children hung around to carry the scraps over to feed Capt. Dalbert Delacruz smiles as he cleans his crew’s catch.

By the end of the rainy, dreary day there were still no entries in the bill sh, tuna or ono categories. I was on one of those six boats. But our mental person kept telling us that a ‘bad day of shing is still better than a good day at work’ and that’s why the sport is called ‘ shing’ and not ‘catching’. Thanks a lot. As it turned out, it was a good shing day for Captain Les Saulibio and crew who returned with sh. The community didn’t turn out for the second day of weigh-in. It was raining and dreary and they would have been disappointed with only one boat catching sh. The tournament potluck dinner and awards were held at 6 p.m., Monday, at the Paci c Club. Great foods, including several sh dishes, were eaten. Random drawings were held for door prizes. In the other tuna category, Captain Johnny Ysaguirre and crew took the prize for the largest sh with a 45.3-pound dogtooth tuna. Captain Dalbert Delacruz and crew took the prize for the smallest sh with a 9-pound aku. In the reef runner category, Captain Bill Jones and crew took the prizes for the largest and smallest sh with an 18.6pound grouper and a 2.2-pound barracuda. Captain Les Saulibio and crew took the aggregate prize with a total of 59.2 pounds of sh comprised of an 8.8 pound barracuda, a 19.4pound aku, and a 31-pound dogtooth tuna. The grand prize winner was then randomly drawn from the list of category winners. Captain Johnny Ysaguirre and crew were the lucky winners. That means they now have the responsibility of organizing next year’s 12th Annual Hanapa’a Fun Fishing Tournament. Oh, and by the way, I couldn’t rest until I researched the word Hanapa’a again. It is commonly spelled Hana Pa’a and is a Hawaiian word which literally means ‘to make secure or fasten.’ However, it is frequently used as a slang to mean ‘hook up’ or ‘ sh on.’ Thus, throughout Hawaii, whenever a sherman has a strike, he yells, “HANA PA’A!” HANAPA’A from Page7 Left to right, Robert Herring, Dalbert Delacruz, Andrew Mayeke, Cindy Mathieson and Darryl Mathieson show off their catches.Photo by Vanessa K.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, Sept. 12, 2008 9 Mark and Amy Daniels are pleased to announce the early and unexpected arrival of the most recent Kwaj resident, their daughter, Marcy Laine Daniels, who weighed in at 5 pounds, 12 ounces. She was born at 8:22 p.m., Sept. 3, at Kwajalein Hospital. Mark and Amy would like to send a sincere thank you to the community for all that has been done for them this past week. The donations of clothing, baby essentials, meals, and emotional support have been phenomenal. It is no surprise to see fellow residents come together in times of need, yet they are extremely appreciative and humbled. Thanks also to the fabulous hospital staff. The care and attention Marcy Laine received was top notch. Marcy Laine DanielsBy John J. KruzelAmerican Forces Press ServiceThe Pentagon will send an assessment team to Georgia to determine what role the U.S. should play as the nation’s military rebuilds after clashes with Russia, a Defense Department of cial said Tuesday. “The Department of Defense is sending an assessment team to Tbilisi later this week to help us begin to consider carefully Georgia’s legitimate needs and our response,” Eric S. Edelman, undersecretary of defense for policy, told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. After the assessment, of cials will review how the United States will be able to support the reconstruction of Georgia, including armed forces aid, Edelman told the lawmakers. Of cials in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi reportedly are eager to rebuild a Georgian military that folded as Russian forces invaded the breakaway province of South Ossetia early last month after an attack by Georgian forces. Russian troops reportedly remain in the former Soviet republic in de ance of a cease re deal reached Aug. 13. President George W. Bush last week pledged to provide $1 billion in nonmilitary aid to Georgia, which supplements the more than 2 million pounds of humanitarian supplies the United States military has delivered over previous weeks. But Edelman’s statements today mark the rst time a defense policy of cial’s public endorsement of U.S. aid to Georgia has included a military reconstruction component. “Georgia, like any sovereign country, should have the ability to defend itself and deter renewed aggression,” he said. “There should not be any question about whether Georgia is entitled to military assistance from the United States or, indeed, from NATO or any of the NATO allies.” Edelman said the United States has played a signi cant role for several years in preparing Georgian forces to conduct counterterrorism missions, but offered no indication of what type of military aid the United States might provide in the future. A separate assessment team currently in Georgia is sizing up the losses sustained by the military, Edelman said. “They’re looking at various aspects of this, trying to assess rst the damage to the Georgian military forces, understand what has been lost in terms of equipment and facilities, and get some sense of the scope of what it would take to just rebuild that capability,” he said of the assessment team in Georgia now.Edelman urged that the United States be “measured and calibrated” in its response. He added that the United States “does not seek a new Cold War.” “It requires, rst, understanding the situation in terms of capability that exists, capability that might need to be built and reaching some understanding with Georgia about what capabilities it thinks it needs and how they might be employed,” he said of the sequenced response. NATO, which created an ad hoc group Aug. 19 to oversee the alliance’s relationship with Georgia, will send an additional assessment team to help shape the organization’s response, Edelman said. “NATO has also decided to assist Georgia in assessing the damage caused by Russian military action, including to the Georgian armed forces, and to help restore critical services necessary for normal public life and economic activity,” he said.

SOLDIERS from Page 2 A Juvenile Review Board met recently to determine appropriate sanctions to recommend to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site commander to be imposed against a juvenile dependent of Kwajalein residents. One fteen year old juvenile admitted to drinking alcohol before going to the Namu Weto Youth Center. This is in violation of Hawaii Revised Statutes § 281-101 (Prohibition Involving Minors). The JRB recommended and the USAKA/RTS commander approved a 7 p.m. curfew until Jan. 1, 2009, plus forty hours of community service, and a one-thousand word essay and voluntary counseling. A JRB is administrative in nature and is not to be construed as judicial action against the juvenile involved. Boards are convened pursuant to USAKA Regulation 27-5 and serve as an alternate to imposing an administrative bar from the island. .Juvenile Review Board resultsPfc. Patrick W.

The new Callegra system is somewhat different from our old AUDIX but provides much greater capacity. The following items explain a couple features and address home voicemail usage. 1. You can still check your voicemail from any phone at USAKA or by long distance. When you dial Callegra voicemail at 5-5925, the system will start an announcement about the phone you are using. To log in to voicemail for a different phone, press the # key as soon as Callegra answers. You will then be prompted to enter the ve digit extension of the phone that you want to access voicemail for. 2. All Callegra voicemail boxes are currently set to accept messages up to four minutes long. However, the message will be terminated if there is a pause in speaking while you are leaving a message. We hope to be able to adjust this timeout feature but for now you must speak continuously or call back to complete your message. 3. Callegra was loaded for all USAKA extensions but that is only the rst of two steps in having it work for an extension. There also needs to be a telephone switch entry that will connect callers to your voicemail. This switch entry should be in place for all extensions that were previously using AUDIX voicemail. If you did not have AUDIX but you would like to use Callegra voicemail, send an email to or call Ron Gamble at 51127. 4. The expanded capacity of the Callegra voicemail system permits us to offer home use on a trial basis. If you would like to use voicemail at home, send an email to or call Ron Gamble at 51127. This service will be offered at no cost. Permanent residential use will be subject to an analysis of the effect on system performance and administrative time requirements.NOTE: To use of cial and unof cial PINs for phone calls, 00 must precede the number. For example, if the PIN is 123456, it would now be 00123456. Telephone upgrades are still ongoing. Voicemail Information
