U.S. Navy’s 13th Naval Construction Regiment (Seabees) Sailors who make up the Civic Construction Action Detail will be doing Humanitarian Assistance projects in the Republic of the Marshall Islands with an estimated start date of summer 2013. In between HA projects for the RMI, the CCAD team intends to re t on Kwajalein and has offered to assist USAKA with possible quality of life projects, contingent upon funding. The motto for the Republic of the Marshall Islands: “Jepelpel in ke Ejukaan” Jepelpel refers to the vast ocean distances that separate the islands while recognizing the unified spirit of the people. Ejukaan refers to a stand of coconut trees that are tall, firm, strong and unified, symbolizing unity and strength. Thumbs Up!... to everyone who assisted with the USAKA Change of Command events this week – job well done! ... to Roi Community Activities workers Bellu Tabu, Mario David, Jelwin Garcia, Roman Lokeijak and Gemlock Nenam for all the hard work and muscle that was put into the Roi Gym makeover. Great job! Roy Tomas, Surfway is looking better and better! Thank you! Jared Barrick, CYSS youth services director, for all of your efforts concerning the youth and this community. You are a great role model!The 4th of July is always a great occasion in our country and is celebrated with much enthusiasm and patriotism. Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and Congress’ rati cation of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. As we celebrate with parades, BBQs and reworks, take a few moments and assess the safety risks of your planned activities to you and your friends. High risk activities associated with this holiday include mishandling reworks, swimming or boating and irresponsible driving actions like speeding, failure to wear seat belts and driving under the in uence. After assessing the safety risks, go a step further – take the necessary actions to reduce those risks. Talk about travel plans. For Soldiers, use of the Travel Risk Planning System, ( nd on the website), is mandatory for travel outside a 300-mile radius of your assigned duty location. TRiPS is an automated trip planning tool that incorporates the principals of risk management and facilitates a dialogue between supervisor and subordinate prior to POV travel. Civilians are also strongly encouraged to use TRiPS. While you are enjoying your much earned time off, watch out for each other. Designate drivers and use common sense. Ensure your vehicle is in good condition, drive defensively and maintain good situational awareness when in public venues. Holidays should not be the only time leaders and supervisors engage Soldiers and employees with formal and informal safety awareness counseling and training. Leaders at all levels are expected to ensure that personnel within their commands and directorates are aware of the risks involved in holiday activities. Tragic consequences can result from routine off-duty activities when individuals fail to consider the safety hazards and risks involved and fail to take action to mitigate or eliminate those risks. The bottom line is: be responsible for your actions. Safe holiday weekends are successful holiday weekends. — Richard P. Formica, Lieutenant General, USA, Commanding 4th of July Safety Message


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012 Formica conducts Kwajalein town hallArticle and photo by Catherine Layton Associate EditorLt. Gen. Richard P. Formica, Commanding General, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, detailed the importance of Kwajalein within the constructs of the Department of Defense during a town hall Tuesday at the Corlett Recreation Center. Activeduty personnel, Department of the Army civilians and contractor leadership were all in attendance for the general’s brie ng, in which he spoke about the future vision for Kwajalein. Formica began by stressing the strategic importance of the work performed at Kwajalein Atoll. “I want to look you in the eye every time I come out and say thanks for what you’re doing.” The DoD has put out a new strategy for the 21st century. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site directly supports USSTRATCOM, so we should expect to be a big part of this strategy. “Our Secretary of the Army looks at our priorities and he focuses on ... having the right force,” said Formica.The strategy is underway, and USAKA is already a part of the changes, according to Formica. It began by strengthening the information assurance and server security here. “You all are doing a little bit of that. We’ll ensure accountability across the Army. We’ve got steps to take, and we’re taking them here. ... That is support to the War ghters and our missions,” he said. The workforce at Kwajalein was encouraged to understand how the strategy translates for this arena, and Formica was quite clear. The campaign plan must be within the priorities established by our leadership and be consistent with the strategies the DoD has put out. “In that campaign plan, we’re going to ID the functions that we do, and where those functions align with the STRATCOM and Army campaign plans, and that they will remain relevant and will continue to get resources.” There are three core tasks Formica has set. First, provide trained and ready SMDC forces and capabilities to the War ghter and the nation. Second, build future space and missile defense forces. Lastly, where USAKA becomes an integral part, do research, development, test and integrate space, missile defense, cyber, directed energy and related technologies. Formica described some of the activities currently ongoing, including deployment of radars which are part of a global ballistic defense system. RTS also participates in a variety of exercises, such as involvement in new satellites that have gone up to increase 10-fold our capacity for satellite communications. As for the impending Installation Management Command presence on Kwajalein, Formica explained, “We are working on a long term sustainment strategy. Since my last visit, we had laid out a rationale to transition Kwaj to where SMDC/ARSTRAT would focus on the operational functions [through] RTS.” The decision was made to have IMCOM take over base operations and USAKA/RTS will focus on the RTS mission. Lt. Gen. Richard P. Formica, Commanding General, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, hosted a town hall Tuesday for the workforce at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. “Then I, as the senior commander, would remain responsible for both. That is sacrosanct for me; it is not going to become two competing operations. We’re going to have two different organizations bringing their expertise to bear in one place, so we can continue to do things at Kwajalein well. But we’re going to let IMCOM bring their expertise and resources to base ops, while we bring our expertise and resources to RTS.” Questions from the audience were taken. The rst concerned the transition to IMCOM and currently approved military construction projects, such as the air eld and Echo Pier. Formica reassured the audience that monies were already being allocated for facility upgrades at Kwajalein. “When there is a senior level review, the things at Kwaj will be part of the consideration, where I am not so sure that we actually were plugged in very effectively before,” Formica explained. The IMCOM commander will look at the best way to balance the total sum of MILCON dollars. Formica, as senior commander, will be responsible for making a push for Kwajalein projects. Formica cited the IT infrastructure and air eld as the number one and two priorities. “I will continue to advocate for those because I don’t want them to get lost in the enterprise. They are critical.” Another question was raised regarding quality of life issues and how they will be funded in the future. Formica again featured the bene ts of IMCOM, saying, “When a commander has a big pile of money, and they need to make decisions on whether to x the day care center, the runway, or radars – those are false choices. In this new alignment, base ops funding will be separate from RTS.” Formica reminded those in attendance that there will still be some differences between installations, even though standardization will be in place, and Kwajalein to a certain extent will remain unique in some areas.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012By Sheila Gideon Managing Editor In a traditional U.S. Army change of command ceremony, Col. Joseph Gaines relinquished command of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll to Col. Shannon Boehm. The ceremony took place Wednesday at the xed wing hangar. William White, master of ceremonies, welcomed distinguished guests and members of the community to the ceremony. The of cial party of Boehm, Gaines and Lt. Gen. Richard Formica, Commanding General, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, were announced as they marched into the hangar. All remained standing for the playing of national anthems of both the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the United States. Protestant Chaplain Jon Olson then read the invocation. “We thank you for the leadership of Col. Gaines and we ask that you bless him as he transitions into his retirement. We thank you for his years of service to our country. We also ask that you bless our new commander, Col. Boehm, his wife Jeri and family. May his leadership strengthen our community.” Sgt. Jeffrey Satterwhite presented a dozen red roses and traditional Marshallese wut to Gaines’ wife, Dianne Reed. Capt. William Mills presented a dozen yellow roses and wut to Boehm’s wife, Jeri. A wut and lei were also presented to Boehm’s daughter, Cassandra, and lei to his son, Jacob. White continued saying, “The change of command ceremony is a time honored tradition transferring total responsibility, authority and accountability from one commander to another.” The key of the change of command is the passing of the unit’s colors. “Even though unit personnel come and go and commanders change, the colors remain.” Transfer of the colors represents the transfer of responsibility. The of cial party rose for the exchanging of the colors. Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Nustad handed the colors to Gaines, who then handed them to Formica. This signi ed the end of Gaines’ tenure as USAKA commander. Formica then handed the colors to Boehm, signifying the beginning of his tenure as USAKA commander. Boehm then passed the colors back to Nustad for safekeeping, who placed the ag back in the stand. The of cial party was seated as the rst guest speaker, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Martha Campbell, was announced and stepped up to the podium. “Col. Joseph Gaines has been a key ally, successfully promoting USAKA’s critical mission while actively engaging with our valued partners in the Marshall Islands,” she began. “[Kwajalein’s] leaders and of cers have been attuned and sensitive to the needs of the local population, providing emergency assistance, promoting education, supporting health services and working to assist the RMI with its goals of self sustainability and economic independence. The of cers may change, but USAKA’s commitment to excellence in all elds has continued unabated.” Campbell welcomed Boehm and his family to the RMI. “You will quickly nd yourself falling in love with its beautiful weather, pristine waters and welcoming people.” The Honorable David Kabua, RMI minister of health, representing the president of the RMI, took a moment to re ect upon Gaines’ contributions to the RMI over the past two years and to welcome Boehm and his family. He proclaimed deep appreciation and gratitude toward Gaines from President Christopher Loeak and the Marshallese government for all that was done for the RMI in the past two years. A brief list of humanitarian assistance and improvements under Gaines’ command was read aloud, including aid during water shortages, solar panels for the schools, assistance during the dengue fever outbreak and the extraction of unexploded ordnance found on Ebeye school grounds.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012Kabua said, “The RMI government is thoroughly committed to strengthening the partnership between our two countries. We look forward to working with you.”Formica then gave his remarks to outgoing commander Gaines, and USAKA’s 26th commander, Boehm. He highlighted some of Gaines accomplishments during his tenure as USAKA commander. First and foremost, Gaines worked closely with Campbell and the embassy staff to nurture and sustain an excellent relationship with the government of cials and the people of the RMI. His dif cult decisions during the complex budgetary process resulted in the decision by the Secretary of the Army to realign USAKA base operations under Installation Management Command. In November 2011, RTS executed the rst ever successful test of the advanced hypersonic weapon. “All along, you’ve made the right decisions, Joe, to provide service and support while better aligning our operations here at USAKA with the Army standards and processes. All the while, [you continued] humanitarian efforts on behalf of the people of the RMI.” To Boehm, Formica said, “While this command will certainly be different than anything you’ve ever done, you bring unique capabilities and experiences that will serve you well in this command and here at USAKA.” Gaines addressed the Kwajalein community one nal time. He said that while he was busy enjoying the beautiful weather and island life here at USAKA, he was also busy running multiple tests and missions at the range. “The pace here has been unbelievable. The number and variety of tests we’ve successfully supported has been nothing short of amazing.” While Gaines will remember all his challenges and accomplishments here at USAKA, what he will remember most are the people. He thanked a long list of people who have supported him both professionally and personally, including his USAKA staff and the Kwajalein Range Services leadership team. He thanked the RMI government for their hospitality and willingness to work with USAKA. Boehm addressed the Kwajalein community for the rst time as USAKA/RTS commander. He began by saying in his 23 years of service, he has never been to a place as astonishing as Kwajalein. The beauty of Kwajalein Atoll, and the signi cance and complexity of the work done here at USAKA blew him away. To Formica he said, “I promise to you, to do my upmost best to take off where Col. Joe Gaines and his team have left [off].” He said he looks forward to the challenges ahead. To his new staff, he said, “We will embrace the challenges ahead together and I have no doubt that we will succeed.”A reception was held after the ceremony. Attendees welcomed Boehm as the new USAKA commander, and bid farewell to Gaines. Left, Col. Shannon Boehm shakes the hand of Lt. Gen.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012 Military career at a glance: Col. Joseph Gaines Former USAKA Commander Col. Joseph Gaines is pinned with the Legion of Merit medal by Lt. Gen. Richard Formica. Col. Joseph Gaines is given personal well wishes from his former USAKA staff. Gaines retires after 26-year Army career Dianne Reed, wife of former USAKA Commander Col. Joseph Gaines, receives a certificate of appreciation from Lt. Gen. Richard Formica.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorAfter almost 26 years in the United States Army, Col. Joseph Gaines is moving on from military life to retire and spend time with his wife. A retirement ceremony was held Wednesday at the Corlett Recreation Center, of ciated by Lt. Gen. Richard Formica, Commanding General, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command. Also part of the of cial party was Debra Wymer, director of the Test and War ghter Solutions Center. Active duty Soldiers of USAKA, along with Department of the Army civilians and contractors also attended.Formica began with a few jokes to lighten the mood. “It seems like just yesterday that Joe was the commander of USAKA…” He then highlighted Gaines’ impressive 26-year air defense career, which culminated in a brigade level command here at Kwajalein. Formica thanked Gaines for his years of service. Gaines took center stage with Formica and Wymer to receive several awards. He was rst awarded with the Legion of Merit Medal “for exceptionally meritorious service while serving in a variety of challenging assignments.” Next, he received a certi cate of appreciation from the President of the United States, Barack Obama. Sgt. Jeffrey Satterwhite escorted Gaines’ wife, Dianne Reed, to the stage. Gaines was nally presented with his certi cate of retirement and pin. This symbolized his of cial retirement from the U.S. military. Reed remained on stage and was awarded the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal from Formica “for extraordinary caring and dedication to the Soldiers and families of the U.S. Army.” Reed was also presented a certi cate of appreciation from Formica, on behalf of Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, U.S. Army chief of staff. Gaines took center stage and continued to praise his wife for all she has done over the years. It was her sound advice, guidance and support throughout the years that got him to where he is today in his career. Retirement after a brigade command is unusual, Gaines said. But he did not want to work in a cubicle somewhere after the emotional high of commanding at Kwajalein. Gaines declared that the highlight of his 26-year military career was his post here at USAKA. He felt blessed to have worked with such a talented staff. After 26 years at various duty stations, he doesn’t always remember each job, but he does remember the people. It was the people he’s worked with that helped him achieve all he has and for that he is extremely grateful. The ceremony concluded with the playing of the Army song. Attendees passed through the reception line to give personal thanks and well wishes to both Gaines and Reed. – Graduated from Salisbury State University in Maryland.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012 Then and Now “Pine Street” Pine Street’s first housing units had four, two-bedroom housing units made of cinderblock, with sparse vegetation. Today, some of those housing units have been replaced with the more modern townhomes, and foliage makes for a more lush environment. The photo at right shows havoc after Typhoon Zelda blew through in 1991, leaving Pine Street a debris-littered mess.

Hibberts is the steward for Alaska, Hawaii, Korea, Japan and Kwajalein. There are a total of 10 regions or commands which are represented in the ATP. To qualify for the post, Hibberts had to complete a rigorous application, including essays describing everything from her extracurricular activities, to her involvement in installation youth programs, leadership roles and volunteer efforts. One question asked what she felt the role of teens should be in the community; “I think teens should be a role model for younger kids. We are such a tight-knit community, and when I was young, I saw much of the teens here were active leaders and volunteers. It motivated me to get involved,” she said. Hibberts is also a current member of the Paci c Teen Panel, along with three other island youth. “Being a part of the PTP inspired me to apply for the ATP. It made it an easy decision to continue on that path,” she said. As for her goals as representative, “I want to be able to represent the whole region evenly, and do a really thorough job,” she said. Hibberts’ tenure begins July 9 with an ATP conference in San Antonio. She will hold her post for a two year term.


8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 30, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI Article and photos by Laura Pasquarella-Swain Roi Community Activities Manager The Roi Gym had a makeover last week. Roi Community Activities took less than three days to completely empty out the gym and put it back together. The process was a lot of good old fashioned hard work to get done in such a short time. All the equipment was moved, the ooring and carpet were ripped out and replaced with new ooring. Several pieces of equipment came from the Ivey Gym and one piece from the Army Bulk Buy. New weights, stability and weighted medicine balls, music system, TV and DVD player were installed for use. The gym was arranged so it will be better for circuit training.
