This rumor was brought up at the recent town hall meeting. AFN Headquarters changed the program lineup and channel NPR normally plays on. AFN Kwajalein technicians corrected the issue and NPR is now playing as usual. Based on oral traditions, there was a great deal of warfare in the Marshall Islands between chiefly clans, primarily for political control of the various atolls. The two chains of islands, Ralik and Ratak, were never united under one chief. Also, none of the atolls and islands within each of the chains have ever united except in the case of Ralik, but this was a comparatively late development and was of rather short duration. ... to the Kwaj Swim Team coaches and board members for a fabulous year! All the kids were successful because of you! ... to the tennis players who sweep the court when nished playing. ... to Community Activities for maintaining the tennis courts. ... to Roy Tomas, Surfway manager, for being publicly recognized at the Kwaj town hall meeting for a job well done.Thumbs Up! Thumbs Down!... to the person who took the gray Rubbermaid trailer with white rims from the front of the Reef BQ. Please return it or call 59252 and let me know where it is. Thank You The Fullerton family would like to extend our most sincere thanks to those who contributed to the owers sent for Faith’s memorial service. To know that our island “family” was thinking of us in our time of grief touched and comforted us; we truly appreciated it. Thank you.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2012 Charles Stewart was stationed on a supply ship at Kwajalein in 1944 and came back to visit Kwajalein this month. World War II vet returns to KwajaleinStewart was stationed on supply ship at Kwajalein in 1944Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorKwajalein hosts numerous visitors that come here for various reasons. Some come to visit family, others come to tour the island as a battle eld site from World War II and some might even visit for both reasons. This is of cially the rst time Charles Stewart has ever been to Kwajalein, but technically, he has been here once before. Stewart served in the U.S. Navy from September 1943 to June 1946. He was stationed aboard the supply ship USS Cheleb The ship found its way to Kwajalein Atoll during Operation Flintlock in 1944. “We issued supplies to the eet,” Stewart said. “A lot of times we’d rendezvous with a eet before they had their next assault. Then sometimes we’d be there after the assault.” While at Kwajalein, he never saw the island. “We never got ashore anywhere we were,” Stewart clari ed. “The only reason I knew I was at Kwajalein was they told us we were at Kwajalein.” Now that he has visited the island, he thought back to when his ship was here; he’s now not sure if he was at the island of Kwajalein, Roi-Namur, or maybe just Kwajalein Atoll in general. “I assume we were out in the lagoon somewhere.” Stewart also has family here at Kwajalein. His nephew, Dave Gray, came to Kwajalein in 1996. Gray is the Reagan Test Site MDA/DTR Site support manager. Stewart got his very rst passport at age 86, just to come to Kwajalein to visit. “It’s a strange reason why I’m here,” he said. “I’m not here because I happened to be here during the war.” The Gray family sent Stewart a 2012 Kwajalein calendar. The very last picture was an overhead shot of the island. He passively told his son he’d like to go there. “It just looked so nice,” Stewart said. Once his family found out he’d like to visit, they arranged the trip for him. “It’s a very nice place,” he commented of Kwajalein. He joked that “at his age” he doesn’t appreciate bicycles as the main mode of transportation; but, he’s been getting around ne on a tricycle and golf carts. “At my age I don’t think I’d want to live here and pedal my bike all over the place. It’s much easier to hop in a car. … But, it’s a unique lifestyle and I can see why people like it.” He enjoys sitting out back of the Gray’s Oceanside home and feeling the breeze off the ocean. He said the big, crashing waves here are nothing like back home at the New Jersey shore. Stewart has enjoyed going to the softball games to cheer on his nephew. He got to tour Kwajalein and see all the World War II memorials. He went on a boat to Meck Island and saw the launch pad and some of the buildings. He said it would have been neat to see an actual missile take off, but just knowing they take off from there is cool too. At home, Stewart is a volunteer on the Battleship New Jersey When he told the guys he volunteers with that he was visiting Kwajalein, they were baf ed. “Why are you going there? There’s nothing to do there,” they told him. “That was our impression – that there was nothing to do here,” Stewart said. “But you’ve got all kinds of clubs to participate in and you’ve got everything you’d have back in the States. It’s just a different location and a different lifestyle.” Stewart departs Kwajalein on Monday. Nikki Delisio arrived at Kwajalein just in time for St. Patty’s Day on March 17. She moved from Frederick, Md., after reading about Kwajalein on the Kwajalein Range Services website. She is the new physical therapist on island. Her family will be arriving shortly. She will be joined by her husband Chris and two daughters Tessa, 6, and Juliet, 1. Delisio is looking forward to making new friends and enjoying all the outdoor recreational activities here on Kwajalein.Photo by Sheila Gideon


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2012Students develop leadership skills at mini youth forum on Roi-Namur The students attending the mini youth leadership forum on Roi take a tour of the radars.Article and photos by Jared Barrick Youth Services DirectorThe CYSS Keystone Club is a youth council that meets biweekly at the Namo Weto Youth Center. The club consists of high school students who are interested in developing leadership skills by planning events and activities for Kwajalein teens. Throughout the year, the club organizes such events as the community Halloween Carnival and Haunted House, the recent variety show for Operation Baby Bag, and recreational activities for teens such as dances, sporting events and other day-today activities. Another major component of the club is character building, teen issue discussions and leadership development. The Keystone Club attends quarterly Youth Action Council meetings in which they invite parents, school faculty, CYSS staff and the general public to attend and discuss issues affecting the teen population. The culmination of all of these events, meetings and discussions is the mini Youth Leadership Forum. The of cial YLF takes place yearly, and is organized by the Paci c Teen Panel. This trip includes representatives from all Army installations within the Paci c region, and will include ve teens from Kwajalein this year. The mini YLF is an individual installation-run activity that is meant to mirror some of the positive aspects that the regional YLF provides. This year, the Keystone Club considered the idea of holding the mini YLF on Roi-Namur. With nearly 40 teens attending the original Keystone Club meeting, the teens knew that it would not be possible for all members to make the trip. The club devised a plan to track year-round community service hours, and set a minimum number of hours completed necessary to attend the trip. When all was said and done, 16 teens were afforded the opportunity to attend the 2012 mini YLF on Roi from April 14-16.The event is teen-organized and teen-led, so the group spent a couple months organizing and planning all the activities for the weekend. When the group rst arrived on Saturday afternoon, they spent some time getting their rooms organized and purchasing snacks for the weekend. When 5 p.m. rolled around, it was time for the rst activity. Club members had a teambuilding relay race planned for the kick-off activity. All the teens met outside of their lodging to get their directions, and when it was time to head over to the outdoor basketball court for the activity, the rain came. It was not the start everyone was hoping for, but the group did not let it get them down. They took shelter for a while, realized the rain was not letting up, so decided to run back to the lodge, clean up and get ready for dinner. During the meal, the group re-evaluated their plans for the evening and created a schedule on the y that would support all of the activities, including the relay race. After dinner, the group headed back to the basketball court and competed in a relay race in which teams had to transport an egg from one end of the court to another, using pipe-line, while avoiding obstacles. The activity was a great start to the weekend and it led to a discussion about teamwork that would bene t them throughout the rest of their activities on Roi. After the team-building exercise, the group listened to a presentation about college life given by Jared Barrick. The teens were very receptive to the information, and asked many questions about daily life and what to expect when they leave the atoll and head off to school. It was great to see their enthusiasm for the subject, and listen to some of their concerns about the big transition all of them plan to make. Following this discussion, it was time for some play. Teens got dressed and headed to the pool, where there were organized games that everyone enjoyed. The rst night ended with a lot of excitement for the day to come. Sunday morning plans called for a 7 a.m. ferry ride to Third Island. Teens spent the weeks prior to the mini YLF trip advertising and soliciting donations of used sports equipment, clothing, books and stuffed animals to donate to the Third Island School. The club was able to collect nine large boxes and bags from Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School and the community. The boxes contained basketballs, soccer balls, footballs and volleyballs.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2012 Jennifer Hibberts plays with the new soccer ball given to children on Third Island. Students try their hand at yoga during the mini youth leadership forum on Roi.When the group arrived on Third Island, they headed directly to the school. Again, like the rain on day one, there was a small hiccup. Communication between the students and the school representative may have broken down somewhere, as the people they were scheduled to meet were not there upon arrival. This minor setback had no effect on the teens who organized the trip. Keystone Club members began pumping air into the various balls and began playing volleyball, basketball and kickball. Within the blink of an eye, the eld they were playing on was lled with children from all over the island. The teens began organizing volleyball circles, a basketball game, a soccer game and a kickball game. The trip and interaction proved to be the highlight of the weekend. After saying goodbye to their new Third Island friends, the Keystone Club headed back to the dock to wait for the ferry back to Roi. Now back on Roi, the teens invaded the snack bar for lunch. Following lunch, the teens were treated to a special tour of the ALTAIR and TRADEX radars. The group was able to view and learn the many scienti c and technological aspects of running these large radars. The teens walked away from both of the tours with a new appreciation for the amazing things the Roi radars are capable of. When we arrived back from the radar tour, it was time for an Amazing Race activity. The focus of this activity was to have fun, work together, compete and learn about the six pillars of character education. Each team was tasked with completing six challenges throughout Roi. There was a task for each character trait: respect, fairness, responsibility, caring, citizenship and trustworthiness. Every team had a great time competing in the race, and when it was all said and done, the teens were able to lead a productive discussion on the importance and meaning of the six pillars of character. Before dinner, it was time for one more game. Students put a new twist on the popular game of Capture the Flag. Each member on both teams was assigned a form of disability, and the participant had to play the entire game acting out their handicap. Examples included missing limbs and blindness. After all the fun, there was a discussion with the group where students were asked to imagine what itÂ’s like for wounded warriors coming back from war. The teens got serious quick, and began to appreciate the sacri ces that many Soldiers make in order to protect our freedoms. After dinner, the teens had one more meeting. During this time, members led a discussion on issues that affect Kwajalein teens. PTP members will be responsible for raising some of these issues at the regional YLF in July, so this was a great start for them to gather input from island teen-leaders. Some concerns addressed state residency requirements, driverÂ’s education for teens on Kwajalein, as well as many other challenges that uniquely affect Kwajalein youth. On Monday morning as the teens sat at the airport, they could see the tired looks on their faces and the group knew they accomplished everything they set out to do for the weekend. The Keystone Club would like to give a special thanks to Laura Pasquarella-Swain, the community activities director on Roi. She went above and beyond to make sure the teens had everything they needed for a successful weekend. We would also like to thank Ryan Krogh, airport operations manager, for assisting us in scheduling our ight arrangements. We would also like to thank our radar tour guides: Steve Golly, Steve Shidler and Jim Bennett. The time you volunteered to educate the young people of Kwajalein was truly appreciated. Thanks also to the staff of Caf Roi and Outrigger snack bar for feeding and hosting us all weekend. From the Kwajalein side, a special thanks goes out to Katie Lemburg, Susannah Jones and Saimon Balos for taking the time to spend their weekend as chaperones. Thanks also to the staff at Kwaj Lodge who took extra time and precautions to make sure our room arrangements were correct, safe and manageable for our chaperones. Thank you to Anne Dowell and anyone else at the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School who helped coordinate the donations. Thanks to community members and teens who donated items for the Third Island School. Finally, thank you to the outstanding teen members of the Keystone Club who made the trip.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI By Laura Pasquarella-Swain Roi Community ContributorOn April 13, residents of the RoiNmaur and Kwajalein communities held a Celebration of Life ceremony for Jim Bodmer, who passed away on March 31. Forty ve members of the community participated in the event at the Tradewinds Theater. Pastor Jon Olson started the ceremony; he talked for a few minutes about grief and loss. The microphone was then turned over to community members. They got on stage to share small tales of their colleague and friend. A video clip and photo show were presented and will be sent to BodmerÂ’s family to hopefully help them get a better understanding of how special a place Roi was to our friend Jim.
