2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 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.

Yes. Youth 13 years of age and older do not require a parent or adult over 21 to access Coral Sands and Camp Hamilton between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. However, the buddy system must be used and all other water safety policies still apply. Navigation “stick charts” are only found in the Marshall Islands. There are three kinds of stick charts. First, the “Rebbelib,” is a general wave navigational chart that can cover all of the Marshall Islands or specific chain of islands (e.g. Ralik or Ratak). The second type is the “Medo,” which covers only a few islands and is useful for specific voyages. The third type, the “Mattang” or “Wappepe,” identifies wave patterns formed around islands. Col. Joseph N. Gaines, Commander, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll Cordially invites you to the Memorial Day ceremony Monday, the twenty-eighth of May Two thousand and twelve Nine o’clock in the morning at the flag pole Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands Memorial Day Message Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our Nation’s service. Memorial Day was of cially proclaimed on May 5, 1869, by Gen. John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. It was rst observed May 30, 1868, when owers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. We mourn the passing of all Armed Forces personnel and honor those who continue to serve. Traditionally, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer season and a time for gathering with family and friends. Soldiers and civilians must make effective on and off duty risk assessments, to prevent needless accidents or injuries. One of the primary focuses across the Army is privately owned vehicle and motorcycle accident prevention. The majority of fatal traf c accidents occur off duty and many involve alcohol consumption, reckless driving and a failure to use seatbelts. I expect leaders to ensure that all personnel are aware of the hazards they are likely to face during the holiday and throughout the summer. Leaders must reinforce the use of the Travel Risk Planing System. Leaders must also stress the importance of the use of seatbelts and the hazards of drinking and driving. Memorial Day is the rst holiday of the summer season. It provides a great opportunity for well-earned relaxation, as well and solemn remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacri ce to protect and secure freedom. I encourage all of you to place safety as a top priority during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. “SECURE THE HIGH GROUND” — Richard P. Formica, Lieutenant General, USA, Commanding RetractionIn the May 5 issue of the Hourglass, the Rumor Mill stated there would be a pilot program for teenagers to rent scooters at USAKA. Due to safety concerns, this pilot program has been put on hold.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 2012 Above, Harden Lelet translates information about unexploded ordnance awareness into Marshallese. Right, a student at Ebeye Calvary School looks over a pamphlet that identifies various UXO.Ebeye students know how to “Recognize, Retreat, Report” when it comes to UXO Odrikawa Jatios shows students at the Ebeye Middle School the difference between grenades, mortars and rockets.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorThe U.S. dropped approximately 100,000 tons of ammunition during Operation Flintlock (that does not include Japanese ammunition). Ten percent of that ammunition did not detonate and much of it was left behind. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team on Kwajalein nds, on average, one unexploded ordnance per week. Most UXO they dispose of is found courtesy of reports made by residents – whether they found it on Kwajalein, Roi-Namur, Ebeye, Enniburr, Carlson or Gugeegue. Without the help of these reports, dangerous UXO could remain on-island. That’s why the EOD team went to Ebeye Wednesday to educate students on what UXO is and how to recognize, retreat and report it.EOD Supervisor Brian Bussey and UXO Technician Bryan Harrington visited ve schools Wednesday. They gave presentations and handed out pamphlets and coloring books to the students and administrators to help them better recognize UXO. Kwajalein Range Services Special Assistant for RMI Affairs Harden Lelet and RMI Environmental Protection Agency representative Odrikawa Jatios also assisted with the presentations. Lelet contacted the schools and made arrangements for the presentations and both Lelet and Jatios helped with Marshallese translation. Bussey’s main message to the kids was, “Just because UXO is old, doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous.” He further stated that just because bullets (which are most commonly found on the beaches) are not in guns, doesn’t mean they can’t harm you. He recounted stories when UXO was handled improperly and people were injured and even killed. Bussey, Lelet and Jatios thoroughly discussed shapes of UXO and compared them to easily recognizable objects, such as a teardrop or pineapple. The most common UXO found on Ebeye are grenades, bullets and 5-inch projectiles. The EOD team disposed of a 5-inch projectile on Ebeye in February; it was located near one of the schools. Luckily, the fuze had been sheared off, but that is not always the case when UXO is found. Lelet and Jatios were critical in getting the message out and making sure the kids really understood how important the information was. While in English there are many words to describe UXO, such as rocket, mortar or grenade, in Marshallese they just call it a bomb. Lelet and Bussey conveyed to the students that regardless of what they call it, they need to remember to recognize, retreat and report.Bussey said there is usually a spike in reports after they visit and discuss UXO. This time, there was an immediate report. While at the Ebeye Community Center, Harrington passed out pamphlets to kids at the basketball courts. One immediately told Harrington he recognized ammunition from the pamphlet and had given it to a friend. Harrington told the boy to have his friend report the UXO and turn it in. Before the team could even leave Ebeye, a group of boys brought them a handful of bullets and casings. The EOD regularly holds education seminars on Kwajalein by visiting the schools or setting up a booth during safety days. They try to visit the Ebeye community at least once per year.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 2012 Resource Manager Adriene Fields, center, discusses a range of financial issues and the IMCOM transition with USAKA Deputy to the Commander, Joe Moscone, left, and Director of Public Works, Jamie Heidle. USAKA resource manager visitsUSAKA ReportsAdriene Fields, Director of Resource Management for U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, who is currently located in Huntsville, Ala., visited Kwajalein for the rst time since coming on duty in her new role. Although the visit was short, the USAKA team provided a series of tours and briefings on current and future resource issues that represent high priorities for the installation. Key topics of discussion included military construction projects, future un nanced requirements and the ongoing transition of base operations to Installation Management Command. Fields was provided an on-site view of not only Kwajalein facilities, but Roi-Namur as well. She received a detailed Reagan Test Site brie ng which captured key mission requirements and sustainment plans for the long term. She also spent some time with the Kwajalein Range Services leadership and nance proponents, where she discussed the elding of the new Army resource management accounting system, GEFEBS.USAKA Deputy to the Commander, Joe Moscone, was pleased with the visit and said USAKA will bene t from Fields being on the installation. “Like we tell all of the visitors who come to USAKA, actually being here, even for a short time, is vital to their understanding of our operations and our requirements. Getting a real rst-hand view on how business is conducted here can’t be truly shown with a PowerPoint slide or e-mail”, Moscone said. “With Adriene’s role as our senior nancial expert in Huntsville, she is also a key advocate for our installation; therefore, coming here to actually meet our government and contractor team helps us that much more. There is so much change going on at USAKA, not the least of which is our realignment to IMCOM, support from our CONUS based reach-back team will be crucial as we move forward.” Fields plans on returning to USAKA in the near future to assist with the planning of the FY13 budget and review other nance issues on the island. “This was a great visit and very useful to see rst-hand all of the planned changes that are coming this installation”, she stated. “The future of the mission here, and the installation support for that mission, is certainly bright. The information I’ve received will be extremely helpful as important funding decisions are made.” Photo by Eva SeelyeThen and Now “Lifeguard Tower” The Lifeguard Tower at Emon Beach is home to the brave and water-friendly lifeguards of Kwajalein. The retro-looking tower of the 1970s, left, has since been replaced by a more “Kwaj-condition” structure. Still, it provides some shelter from the blister ing Kwajalein sun so lifeguards can concentrate on keeping beach bums and swimmers safe. Photo from Hourglass archives Photo by Michael Sakaio

The club managed to raise $1,300 from donations.By Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Students at Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School nished the school year with a fundraiser for their neighboring students. The CYSS Torch Club held their second annual “Run for Heart” event Monday. The students collected donations to purchase school supplies for elementary students on Ebeye. The run began at 8:30 a.m., in front of the Namo Weto Youth Center. The participants followed a two-mile loop, walking or running their predetermined distance goal. Participants either took direct donations from community members or were sponsored a pledge per distance. Students were given pledge sheets and asked members of the community to sponsor them for either a certain distance or for a direct donation. Each participant set a distance goal so they could in-Torch Club raises money to purchase school supplies for students on Ebeye form their sponsors of how far they planned to run or walk. A donation box was set up at the start of the race for those students that just wanted to donate instead of collect pledges. In the end, the students raised a total of $1,300 to purchase school supplies. Once all the money is gathered, they will purchase the supplies form the Triple J store on Ebeye and send the donations to the various elementary schools on island. They will purchase basic supplies, like pencils, notebooks and folders. The Torch Club is a leadership program run through the youth center. The club consists of seventhand eighth-grade students. They plan various activities for fellow students, such as dances and day-to-day operations at the youth center. The goal of the club is to develop leadership and citizenship skills. The club is headed by CYSS Youth Services Director Jared Barrick. Colleen Furgeson, right, and Allison Tomas do their part to raise funds to purchase school supplies for Ebeye students.

Students were acknowledged for excellence in various subjects. Recognition was not always for excellent academic achievements, but for improvement and perseverance, as well.U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Joseph Gaines began the assembly by calling up two students for recognition: Jonathan Bishop and Colby McGlinn. The two seniors were commended for raising and lowering the American ag each school day. Gaines thanked them with a certi cate of appreciation and Commander’s Coin.High School Guidance Counselor Jamie Bowers called up 22 students who were given the President’s Award. Recipients were chosen by criteria established by the President’s educational award program, and by KHS. Students receiving this award must meet eligibility requirements in areas of grades, minimal scores on standardized tests, be enrolled at least one full semester in the year of the award and must be recommended by school faculty and the principal. Bowers read aloud a letter from President Barack Obama commending the students for their efforts. At the end of the assembly, Principal Al Robinson gave a special presentation. He spoke of a student who arrived at KHS late in the year and overcame several setbacks to become an A/B student. She is on her way to being back on track to graduate on time. This year’s “Come Back Kid” award was given to Renu Nonthra.

10The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 26, 2012 One more swim meet on the road to the London Summer Olympics for two locals Article and photo by Amy LaCost Community ContributorLocal swimmers Annie Hepler and Giordan Harris will attend the Oceania Swimming Championships in New Caledonia, scheduled to begin today and end June 3. They have trained hard all year long and have attended other international championship swim meets in Dubai, China, Australia, Palau, Guam and Fiji. They are each scheduled to participate in six events, including the 50-meter freestyle, butter y, backstroke and breaststroke, and the 100-meter freestyle and butter y. Harris will also swim a 200 individual medley, an event that includes 50 meters of each stroke. This meet will be the last opportunity for the swimmers to earn FINA points. FINA, Fdration Internationale de Natation, is the international governing body of swimming, diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and open water swimming. Points determine who is invited to participate in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The road to the Olympics has been tough for these young athletes and they have trained hard and participated in all the required meets for the last two years. This will be only the second Olympics the Marshall Islands may be invited to attend. The Beijing Olympics in 2008 was the rst time that the RMI participated. Hepler and Harris have been preparing mentally and physically to do their best at Oceania and will be proud to represent RMI at the Olympics if invited to participate. Michele Carlson moved to Kwajalein from Knoxville, Tenn. She arrived May 17 and began work as a Project Controls Engineer. Carlson heard about Kwajalein while working at another Bechtel site, so when the job listing opened up she jumped at the opportunity. She is looking forward to not having to drive, making new friends and enjoying the laid back island life. While on working on Kwaj she hopes to travel, visit other islands and make new friends.Photo by Sheila GideonAnnie Hepler, left, and Giordan Harris give “thumbs up” in anticipation of participating in the 2012 Oceania Championships next week.
