2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 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.

Marshallese navigators depend on nature to guide their voyages that take them as far as Hawaii to the east, Enenikio (Wake Island) to the north, Pohnpei to the west, Kiribati to the south and other points beyond. Their ability to read and to know what nature has to offer (from navigating through the use of stars, clouds, waves, currents, winds, birds, and even the color of the ocean) allows them to traverse both within the Ralik and Ratak chains and beyond. The complexity of their navigational skills is captured in their use of the Marshallese navigational stick chart which is used as a teaching tool.... to those who stop and pay respect at the playing of Reveille at 6 a.m. and Retreat at 5 p.m. At 6 a.m., the U.S. ag is raised signifying the beginning of the work day; similarly, at 5 p.m., the U.S. ag is lowered signifying the end of the work day. USAKA/ RTS is a military installation and like all U.S. military installations, it is mandatory that proper etiquette be rendered when one hears the playing of Reveille and Retreat or when one sees the raising and lowering of the U.S. ag. Proper etiquette means to stop whatever activity you are engaged in (walking, running, biking, driving or sports), face the ag or the direction from which the music comes from and render proper respects. Proper respect for those in the military means a hand salute and for civilians the proper custom is to place one’s right hand over one’s heart. ... to the egg stuffers, bunny helpers and Mr. Easter Bunny himself – you were all egg-cellent and made Sunday’s event a ton of fun. Hop on! ... to Billy Abston for his quick eradication of bad bugs! ... to Pastor Jon Olson and Fr. Vic Langhans for doing such a great job last week. They put in a lot of extra hours to bring the Easter season to island residents. You are greatly appreciated!Thumbs Up! Town Hall MeetingRoi Residents5-6 p.m., Friday, at the Outrigger ClubCol.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 2012Scouts challenged in week-long campFrom left, Boy Scouts Aiden Mitchell, Wyatt Jones and Gabe Parrish raise the flag at their camp site. Photos by Lisa ParrishBy Maj. Stephen M. Parrish Sr. Asst. Scout Master, Boy Scout Troop 314Many Kwajalein residents either saw or heard about the Boy Scouts camping out in the old trailer area during the week of Easter break. We did camp for the whole week and I can tell you that in nearly two years, it was one of the best weeks I’ve had on Kwaj – not just because I took a week off from work, but because I know the impacts were positive and lasting. The boys were pushed to their limits from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, and although fatigue crept in slowly throughout the week, the boys continued to meet every challenge with vigor and enthusiasm. The original plan called for a twoor three-day trip up to Roi-Namur, but the logistics just didn’t favor a large number of the boys being able to go, so we came up with the idea of not only keeping it on Kwaj, but also breaking the mold on the location and making it a full eight days and seven nights. After convincing Scout Master Corey Wiley that I wasn’t crazy (not completely anyway), we presented it to the boys – their faces lit up and they jumped at the idea. We kept the camp an open event whereby the boys could pick what events or badges they wanted to do and which nights they wanted to camp and eat with us. We offered blocks of instruction for eight different merit badges, from swimming to emergency preparedness, as well as several hours of fun events like building a monkey bridge over the turtle pond, building animal traps and shelters out of natural material, doing archery at the range and playing Capture the Flag (even some Girl Scouts came out for this one). Some might argue the two 10-mile hikes weren’t exactly fun, but the boys never complained and everyone who started, nished.It was a great time for all the boys (large and small) who came out, and as with any other Scouting event, success is achievable only through the volunteers who offered to help. A great many thanks to Dan Burton for the great shrimp boil; Kristen Hosek for her hours of enthusiastic astronomy instruction and star gazing; Julie Jones, Jane Sholar and Lisa Parrish for their many hours of cooking instruction and training; Lt. Col. Chris Mills and Sgt. 1st Class Jeff Nustad for their orienteering instruction and course development; Bob Sholar for his 20 gallons of “Leprechaun Sweat;” Kwajalein Police Department for their range support; Jeff Sweetenburg, Exchange general manager, for donating gift cards; Wiley and the other dads who helped out and all the others who made this campout possible and successful. Thanks for not being a Lebowski! Also, a huge “great job” to all the boys who participated and completed so much in such a short time. “A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room.” — Sir Robert BadenPowell, 19th Century British Army Lt. General, writer and Boy Scouts Founder.Zach Jones gets wet as he tries to cross the “monkey bridge” built over the turtle pond. Inset, Dawson Wiley successfully crosses the bridge built on land next to the pond. The bridge activity was just one of many during a week-long Scout camp during Easter break.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 2012 The Kwajalein Adult Pool has long been a refreshing place of enjoyment for those over 18 years old. Filled weekly with salt wat er directly from the surrounding Pacific Ocean, the pool now offers a shaded covering filled with floats and water aerobics equipm ent. Recently, new pool lounge chairs were purchased through the Quality of Life Fund. The Adult Pool is a great place to swim laps, do water aerobics and just hang out and soak up the sun.Photo from Hourglass archives Then and Now “Adult Pool” M i l i t a r y C a s u a l t i e s Military CasualtiesConstructionman Trevor J.

Photo by Sheila Gideon The 24th annual Ballroom Dinner Dance is scheduled for May 6 in the MP Room at the high school. This is an opportunity to dress up and enjoy an evening of great music, dancing and dinner. The Kwajalein High School Stage Band, a.k.a. “The Central Paci c’s Most Dangerous Band,” will play cool jazz, jumpin’ swing, and hot Latin tunes throughout the evening. The 20-member Stage Band has been a notable element of the school music program for many years. Their annual dinner dance has evolved into a showcase for their talents and hard work, enjoyed by music lovers and dancers. The group routinely learns 30-40 songs each year, beginning rehearsals in August to prepare for the dance. Members often “double” on various instruments to cover the needs of the many ensembles in which they perform. The student soloists study improvisation to give authentic interpretations to the jazz classics by such greats as Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Glenn Miller and Count Basie. Proceeds from the dance cover dinner and decorations, and very importantly help purchase new music for the following year. Tickets are $45 per person, and are on sale from Cheryl and Dick at 51684. Reservations for seating of parties of 4-8 are available when tickets are purchased. Whether you want to dance the night away, or sit and enjoy the sounds of this accomplished student band, don’t miss the opportunity to attend the Ballroom Dinner Dance.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 14, 2012 Right and below, Eleanor Wilson receives and opens a gift at the dedication of the Morningstar VII in May 1957. An account from Claudeo Jeadrik, who attended the ceremony, puts the number of attendees that day around 400. DISPATCH FROM ROI The Names of Roi: Street named for Eleanor Wilson By Bob Sholar Community ContributorBorn in New England in 1891, Eleanor Wilson rst came to Micronesia as a Christian missionary in 1936, landing in Kosrae. Prior to that, she had served in Japan in the 1920s. In March 1941, Wilson escorted aging fellow missionary Jane Baldwin from Kosrae back to Baldwin’s family home in Orange, N.J. Thus, Wilson avoided being stranded on Kosrae during World War II. This was fortuitous, perhaps for Wilson’s sake, but de nitely for the U.S. Naval Intelligence of cers, who searched her out and cataloged her rare knowledge during the planning of the taking of the Gilbert, Marshall and Caroline Islands. Many retired missionaries were interviewed, but Wilson had the most current familiarity. She provided names of trilingual locals (English, Japanese and Marshallese speakers) who the Navy later hired as scouts – such as the highly regarded James K. Milne. After becoming an ordained minister in Honolulu just after WWII ended, Wilson anxiously returned to Micronesia in August 1946, worried about her many friends. This time she settled at Rong Rong in Majuro Atoll.Wilson captained the Morningstar VI from March 1950 until mid1951, taking control of the old 62foot motor sailor as it was anchored off of current day Emon Beach. Wilson’s captaining of Morningstar VI was described in the 1956 biography “The Lady Was a Skipper.” This book helped raise money to buy Morningstar VII in 1957.Wilson retired from Micronesia in 1961, just as Roi-Namur was being developed as the TRADEX radar site and a road was named in her honor. This is the road the air terminal and re station are on today. So, it turns out that there is more than one reason that a main road on Roi-Namur is named Eleanor Wilson Road. One of Wilson’s last duties was performing Sunday services at Kwajalein Chapel while the Navy Chaplain was on leave.
