No. The new ferries that will replace the LCMs are expected to arrive the rst week of June. Religion plays a very important role in the Marshallese society. In many ways, it is assimilated to its culture. Christianity arrived in the Marshall Islands in 1857 with the arrival of Protestant missionaries on the schooner Morning Star. Kaiboke, the powerful chief of the Ralik atolls, welcomed Christianity to Ebon Atoll. ... to everyone who participated in another fabulous Rusty Family triathlon!

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 19, 2012 Kwaj Kids: Life off “The Rock”Transition to college proves to be difficult for most French author Andre Gide once said, “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” His words seem to have an all too familiar sound for me and my classmates, synonymous to what our teachers and parents have been telling us all year. Our time has come; we are experiencing the bildungsroman (coming of age) chapter of our lives. Kwajalein is my home; I see my friends and family, who I have grown so close to over the years, and it is hard to imagine leaving them. But, it is time. As the days draw nearer, the piercing nostalgic feeling is beginning to transform into anticipation for all of life’s new challenges. So, on a departing note, I would just like to highlight some of the main dif culties that we, “Kwaj Kids,” face as we try our best to assimilate into the Stateside way of life. Graduating high school and moving on to college is tough for most kids. But, it is especially hard for us Kwaj Kids. Growing up on Kwajalein can be compared to living in a utopia. The weather is always the same, you see the same people every day, you are stuck within the con nes of the island and you are completely isolated from the rest of the world. So, when it is nally time to leave, kids are often left feeling dazed and confused, as if waking from a dream. After hearing some ridiculous stories from past Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School alumni, it seems that my pre-disposition on the Kwaj Kid transition was a complete understatement. For some of us, Kwajalein is the only place we know, so trying to effectively function in the real world is often an issue we face after living on Kwaj for so long. Upon talking to some KHS alumni, I gured out that the transition dif culties are really as bad as they sound. Chi-Chi Kemem, KHS Class of 2009, told me that giving directions was a challenge he faced right away. One of his friends was driving over to his house, when she got lost. She called Kemem on the phone and asked him if he lived north or south. Well, after living on Kwaj his whole life, the only way he knew how to give directions was, “Go straight and turn left,” or “Just keep on going.” So, in a panic, Kemem asked the girl, “Can you see the moon? Just keep following it and you should get here soon.” Kelly Grant, KHS Class of 2010, said that she had trouble receiving or reading directions. Grant got lost trying to nd an off-campus bank and ended up at the U.S.–Canada border. The endless intersections and street names can confuse somebody who has only had to know the words “ocean side” and “lagoon side” their whole life. Kemem and Grant weren’t the only Kwaj Kids who struggled with their sense of direction. Kyle Cassiday, KHS Class of 2011, could not even navigate his own campus. The entirety of his school was larger than all of Kwajalein. One day, while leaving his class and attempting to get back to his dorm, he noticed the scenery changed and nothing looked familiar. After about an hour, Cassiday was lost in a bad part of town and it was getting dark. So, he did what any kid would do: He called his parents and said, “I don’t know where I am.” Cassiday’s dad relieved his panic and eventually talked him back to his dorm where he was safe.Driving is another issue that Kwaj Kids face. We do not have the ability to take driver’s education or practice driving here on Kwajalein. But most of us have our nifty Marshall Islands driver’s licenses which gives us the appearance of a legitimate driver, but not the experience. The use of these licenses in the States has resulted in countless tickets for KHS alumni: some for speeding, some for not knowing how to use a blinker and in one instance, an alumnus said they got pulled over for driving on the wrong side of the median on the highway! Kwaj Kids are armed with these licenses and without proper and extensive driving lessons, they can prove to be dangerous. It is not just the scenery that changes when we leave for college, the whole “social code” changes. The kids on Kwajalein live such a sheltered upbringing that eventual exposure to drugs, alcohol and crime blows their mind. My friends and I often compare Kwajalein to the show “Survivor.” You get one strike here on Kwaj, and if you mess up bad enough, your torch is put out and you are barred. In the States, there is no such thing as a bar letter, or the constant, keen eye of the Kwajalein Police Department. Life in the states is truly “dog-eat-dog.” Learning how to avoid certain situations and “self-police” are going to be crucial in the coming years. I am well aware that after living here almost 14 years, my transition into college will prove to be dif cult. I will miss friends, family and the ocean. But, I know there are so many new things to discover and so many new people to meet back in the “real world.” As my PCS date comes closer, I am beginning to think my goodbye will only be temporary. There are several KHS alumni currently living and working here on Kwajalein; their presence gives me hope that one day I will again re-unite with the unique place that is Kwajalein, Marshall Islands.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 19, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI Article and photo by Michael Sakaio Acting USAKA Public Affairs OfficerAntonio Rubon is a grandfathered Republic of the Marshall Islands employee who has been employed on Kwajalein for a good part of 40 plus years. Rubon began working on Roi-Namur Sept. 19, 1970. What makes his life story, or work-life story, so interesting is the fact that like many other grandfathered RMI employees or U.S. contractors who have lived and worked either on Roi or Kwajalein for many years, he was here to witness the many changes that occurred. Though for Rubon, most of these experiences have been more than just life-changing. Rubon remembers Roi, Namur and Enniburr when life was much different and much simpler. In fact, he grew up on Roi. “My house was where the Roi airport terminal is at,” Rubon reminisced. As a youngster growing up on Roi, he remembers when his family, along with the families of the Kobeneys, Anitaks, Lomaes and Nenams, moved from Roi to Enniburr (Third Island). When asked about some of his fond memories as a child on Roi, Rubon shared that as a youngster of 9 or 10 years of age, he always enjoyed shing with his father. “My father and I would sh for ‘jo’ (yellow n goat sh) at the area at the end of the Roi airport.” Or better yet, he recalled that he, along with the other Marshallese families living on Roi at that time, enjoyed the ride on the U.S. military trucks that would pick them up from their houses and take them to the Seabees compound (located by the old Japanese World War II Headquarters Building) to watch outdoor movies. Added to this was the excitement of swimming and jumping off the Yokohama Pier while witnessing the arrival of seaplanes from Kwajalein Roi’s Antonio Rubon: An original Roi-Namur kidto deliver provisions and supplies to the Seabees and other military personnel on Roi. How much better could life be for an original Roi kid? After the families moved to Third Island, teachers were sent there to teach the handful of youngsters. But it was not long before Rubon was sent off to Ebeye to attend the higher grades of elementary education. He returned to live on Enniburr, though after some time, he left for Ebadon, the larger islet at the western end of Kwajalein Atoll. The 1960s brought on many changes to include the passing of administrative and operation oversight of Kwajalein from the U.S. Navy to the U.S. Army in 1964. These changes brought on additional employment opportunities for many of the Marshallese. It meant stability and a chance to make a decent living. Rubon jumped at the chance to be a part of the changes that have come to his childhood home. He landed his rst job at the RoiNamur mess hall as a dishwasher; he followed this up with a myriad of jobs requiring different skill sets, from working as a heavy equipment operator, to being a painter, to that of a building custodial and maintenance worker. With these differing work experiences came different companies to work for – Global Associates, Kentron, Pan American, Johnston Control, Raytheon and Kwajalein Range Services. When asked what his favorite job was thus far, without hesitation, Rubon replied that he enjoys food service. “I enjoy cooking and providing the best meal for my customers, and I like it when they enjoy the food and they say thank you.” U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Joseph Gaines presents Antonio Rubon with a USAKA hat. Rubon grew up on Roi-Namur and has worked at USAKA for over 40 years.
