2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012 THE KWAJALEIN HOURGLASS 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 of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA. It is published Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff.

In recent months, several gray reef sharks have been spotted near Emon Beach by divers. In November 2011, a gray reef shark washed ashore and others were spotted nearby. There has been no direct contact between sharks and humans, but U.S. Fish and Wildlife warns these sharks can be more aggressive during mating or feeding. Other than increased awareness, residents do not need to take any additional action. Sightings of these sharks can be reported to KRS Environmental at 55374, but the department does not routinely monitor shark populations at Kwajalein. Boating is a very common Marshallese pastime. Although powerboats have replaced outrigger canoes for the most part, traditional races are still held periodically between outriggers that range in size from models up to large outriggers. On Kwajalein, the Outrigger Canoe Club hauls out their outrigger canoes twice a week (Monday at 9:45 a.m. and Thursday at 5 p.m.) for practice at Camp Hamilton. Dengue fever is still a problem on Ebeye, but most cases are only suspected and have not been con rmed. In addition, no one on Kwajalein has been diagnosed Continued vigilance in eliminating mosquito breeding grounds (standing water) is necessary. If the situation on Ebeye warrants any further measures, USAKA Public Affairs will notify the community.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012 Air Force Space Command group tours radar sitesGen. William Shelton stops here as part of world tour Jason Daily, who works in space analysis for MIT/Lincoln Labs, explains modernization efforts of the Super RADOT-5 optics site on Roi-Namur to Gen. William Shelton, commander Air Force Space Command. Article and photos by Ruth Quigley USAKA/RTS Public Affairs OfficerThe commander for Air Force Space Command got a rsthand look at the radar and Global Positioning System facilities on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur during a visit to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Monday and Tuesday.Gen. William Shelton and several one-star generals from his staff came to Kwajalein to visit facilities and discuss future efforts of cooperation and coordination between the Air Force and Army in the arena of space operations. “USAKA plays an important role in support of space operations missions,” said Col. Joseph Gaines, USAKA/RTS commander. “Many people think of USAKA as just a test range; however, what we contribute to the space operations mission is quite signi cant. Having Gen. Shelton come to Kwajalein is recognition of the important role USAKA/RTS plays in the space operations arena.” USAKA and Army Space and Missile Defense Command have a history of working with the Air Force on many projects. Every year the Air Force uses Kwajalein in some capacity to conduct tests of the Minuteman III system. USAKA also participates in the Joint Space Operations Center with the Air Force, tracking objects in space during speci ed times. “The RTS sensors play an important role in the Space Surveillance Network,” said MIT/Lincoln Labs Site Manager Kurt Schwan. “Visitors cannot help but be impressed with this atoll, the sensors, and the people. [Shelton and his staff] gained a clear understanding of our capabilities and the crucial role that we play.” Shelton and his staff spent a day on Roi-Namur touring all but one of the radar and optics sites on the island. Shelton was engaged during the entire visit, asking speci c questions about each of the sites and showing a keen understanding of how radar operate. At one site, the issue of parts replacement was mentioned, and one of the technicians explained the unique situation. Some of the radar parts are unique to that system and are not bulk-manufactured. The standard Army policy is to have a command turn in any parts not used in the past two years. However, for these radar parts an exception had to be made because some radar parts are much older but still needed. Shelton also visited the GPS site on Kwajalein and enjoyed a potluck dinner with Gaines and his staff Monday. Shelton’s visit to USAKA was part of a nearly month-long tour of Air Force Space Command sites around the world. He and his staff headed to Guam after departing Kwajalein Tuesday. Shelton was accompanied by staff from Air Force Space Command’s headquarters: Brig. Gen. Samuel Greaves, director of plans, programs and analyses; Brig. Gen. Martin Whelan, director of requirements; Brig. Gen. David Thompson, director of air, space and cyberspace operations; Brig. Gen. Ian Dickinson, director of communications and information; and Jeffrey Allen, director of logistics, installations and mission support, and the commanders of the 21st and 50th Space Wings. Shelton is responsible for “organizing, equipping, training and maintaining mission-ready space and cyberspace forces and capabilities for North American Aerospace Defense Command, U.S. Strategic Command and other combatant commands around the world,” according to a biography of Shelton found on the Air Force website. Shelton is also in charge of space system development and acquisition. Air Force Space Command is headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., with units stationed all over the country and the globe.Gen. William Shelton, left, and Conrad Nakasone talk about the TRADEX radar on the eve of its 50th anniversary in February while Kurt Schwan, center, site manager for MIT/Lincoln Labs, looks on.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012By Ruth Quigley USAKA/RTS Public Affairs OfficerSeveral dozen potential new recruits took the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery last week on Kwajalein and many more took the test on Ebeye and in Majuro. The ASVAB is a multiple choice test used to determine quali cation in the U.S. Armed Forces and is administered by the Military Entrance and Processing Command. The test was administered here the week of Jan. 16. C-Badge and KBadge workers were given a chance to take the ASVAB at the Cortlett Recreation Center Jan. 19. The next day, students at Kwajalein High Jr./Sr. High School were able to take the test. Each day saw 18 test takers, for a total of 36. More than 100 students and adults took the ASVAB on Ebeye, according to C-badge holders take the ASVAB test Jan. 19 at the CRC. ASVAB administered on Kwajalein, EbeyeDon’t let it happen to youBy Kim Morris Registered Nurse, Kwajalein Hospital If you have ever experienced a case of “food poisoning” you will never forget it. Symptoms usually occur 1-6 hours after eating contaminated food, but onset can be up to 16 hours later. Nausea and vomiting are common, followed by retching and abdominal cramps that progress to diarrhea. Some people may have minor symptoms while others feel as if they will die. It depends on the number of pathogens ingested and your general state of health. A common cause of diarrhea is E. coli contamination, but Shigellosis is the most communicable, because it takes only a few organisms to cause disease. Shigella and E. coli are transmitted from direct or indirect fecal contamination. Almost all cases of diarrhea can be prevented by personal hygiene practices. Hand washing is the biggest thing people can do to protect themselves, their families and friends. Wash your hands thoroughly before preparing food. Make sure surfaces and utensils used to prepare and serve food are washed with soap and clean water. Water and ice can also be sources of contamination; make sure the water used to clean and prepare food is treated and from clean vessels. Always wash your “Foods that contain toxins usually look, smell and taste normal. It is important that everyone preparing and serving food take extra measures to prevent contamination. Frequent and thorough handwashing is very effective.”hands after using the toilet and before eating or drinking. Some foods are frequently incriminated in “food poisoning.” These include raw and undercooked foods of animal origin (meat, sh, egg products, cream containing bakery products, milk, dairy products and cheese). Call Kwajalein Hospital at 52223 if you experience symptoms; we can help you feel better. Sgt. 1st Class Ipisia Tuatagaloa, who is an Army recruiter stationed in Honolulu. The ASVAB contains nine different sections, and each one measures a different skill set. Each branch of the armed services has a different minimum score for enlistment. Also, the branches within each service use a unique combination of the scores on each section to determine if a recruit is eligible for a particular branch, like military intelligence, transportation or infantry. Once potential recruits get their scores back and have indicated which branch of the military they would like to join, a recruiter will work with them to determine which military occupational specialty ts their quali cations best. The Compact of Free Association, a bilateral agreement signed by the United Sates and the Marshall Islands in 1986, speci es that the U.S. will provide for the defense of the Marshall Islands. On the ipside, Marshallese citizens can enlist or commission in the U.S. Armed Forces. According to data obtained from the Portland Recruiting Battalion, which is responsible for recruiting in the Marshall Islands, 56 Marshallese citizens enlisted in the U.S. Army between October 2007 and September 2011. There were two of cers commissioned during that same time period. Speci c information from the other services was not available, but Marshallese citizens currently serve in all branches of the armed forces.Photo by Catherine Layton

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012 By Richard Shields Community ContributorRoman Rudnytsky, an internationally active concert pianist, will perform a series of concerts on Kwajalein and Roi. He will play for Roi residents at 7 p.m., Feb. 7 in the Outrigger Club. He will present a concert for Kwajalein school students on the morning of February 8. Finally, he will perform for Kwajalein music lovers at 7 p.m., Feb. 11 in the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School Multi-purpose Room. Rudnytsky is a musician whose frequent performances take him all over the world – to every continent and places in-between. He is, in fact, one of the most traveled of all concert pianists, having played in 95 countries. In addition to performances in capital cities and important musical centers, he often plays in places away from the musical mainstream, bringing the world and pleasure of classical music to audiences which seldom experience this type of music in live performance. His 2012 Micronesian tour will take him to Guam, Saipan, Tinian, Rota, Majuro as well as Kwajalein Atoll.Born in New York into a prominent Ukrainian musical family, he began the study of piano at age 4 and gave his rst full recital at age 7. He is a graduate of the famous Juilliard School in New York and also did additional studies at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore and at masterclasses in Austria (the “Mozarteum”) and Italy. Rudnytsky is a prizewinner in 10 piano competitions, including such prestigious ones as the International Leventritt Competition in New York and International J.S. Bach Competition in Washington and, in Italy, the “F. Busoni” and “A. Casagrande” International Piano Competitions. He has made numerous recordings in Poland, Australia and the U.S. In addition to his many recitals, Rudnytsky has also appeared as a soloist with many orchestras around the world. To date, he has played over 45 different works for piano and orchestra with them. A great honor indeed, he gave the British, Latin American and Australian premiere performances of the recently-discovered Liszt “Concerto No. 3 in E Flat” between 1990 and 1993. Since 1972, Rudnytsky has been a member of the piano faculty of the Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University in Ohio. He is a recipient of that institution’s “Distinguished Professor Award” in recognition of his concert activities. He previously served on the piano faculties of the Indiana University School of Music and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, in addition to being “Artist-in-Residence” at two Australian universities. Roman Rudnytsky last performed on Kwajalein in the fall of 2006.

Great Bridge gets a lift Photo by Amy LaCost The Great Bridge KwajaleinÂ’s secondlargest sea-going vessel, was hoisted above the water line last week on-island for the rst time since 2004. According to Amy LaCost, Kwajalein Range Services marine operations manager, the vessel underwent replacement of the port and starboard keel coolers for the main engines, the pintle bolts were retightened, the stoppers re-welded and painting of the areas where the vessel is moored to the pier was all accomplished in only 96 hours. That time includes setup of the Syncrolift and lowering the vessel back into the lagoon. The Syncrolift registered the Great Bridge weight at 620 tons. The Great Bridge is slated for an offisland overhaul in 2013.
