This can be by the captain to the sailors, or amongst the sailors themselves. This is done to ensure smooth sailing to the destination. However, this can also be connected to other activities in Marshallese culture. For example, parents always “rojen wa” their children to excel in whatever their engagements are. In the work place, the boss normally “rojen wa” their subordinates to ensure they do their best to do the job well. In basketball and football, the cheerleaders “rojen wa” their team to win the competition. In brief, “rojen wa” is to ensure the sail is set right and the course of journey is maintained so that we all can reach our destination happily. Thumbs Up!... to parents who take the time to teach their young children how to ride their bicycles safely and properly signal on the road. ... to people who properly dispose of their cigarette butts at the beaches. It’s great to see everyone doing their part to keep our beautiful beaches clean for all to use. Let’s keep up the good work! ... to the organizers of “The Last Waltz” and “The Grateful Dead Movie” event at Camp Hamilton.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 28, 2012Island sergeant major signing inSgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau speaks to the Kwajalein community at his assumption of responsibilities ceremony July 21. See SERGEANT MAJOR, page 7 Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau is welcomed to the Kwajalein community by David Seelye.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor “One team, one ght, but we have many missions,” is the mantra of the new sergeant major at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site. An assumption of responsibilities ceremony was held July 21 to welcome Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau as the new senior advisor. Fellow USAKA/RTS staff and island residents welcomed him to the Kwajalein community. The highlight of the ceremony was the passing of the noncommissioned of cer sword. The sword bearer for the ceremony was Master Sgt. James Albrecht, senior enlisted advisor for Reagan Test Site. Joined by Albrecht were Prioleau and USAKA/RTS Commander Col. Shannon Boehm. Master of ceremonies Bill White spoke as the sword was passed from Albrecht to Boehm then Prioleau. “The sergeant major role in the Army is one that is time honored and rich in custom and tradition. If NCO’s are the backbone of the Army then the sergeant major is the heart and soul. The duties of sergeant major bear no comparison and represent a special kind of trust in the life of noncommissioned of cers. That special trust is placed in their hands by the commander and by each member of the chain of command to develop, mentor, counsel and care for the unit’s Soldiers as well as their families, and to enforce discipline and oversee the training and welfare of the Soldiers. The assumption of responsibility ceremony for the USAKA/RTS sergeant major, Sgt. Maj. Prioleau, signi es the commander’s charge of authority and responsibility in the execution of his duties as the sergeant major of the organization.” The of cial party then took their seats and Boehm came up to the podium to make his remarks.Boehm welcomed Prioleau and gave a brief history of his 26 years in the U.S. Army. He spoke of his wealth of experience in tactical, operational and institutional levels, including service in the combat zone. He continued, saying, “I’m happy to have you here and everybody out here is appreciative we’ve got a senior enlisted of cer back on board. … I look forward to working with you.”Prioleau then made his remarks. He began by saying he feels honored to be a part of the USAKA team and he will do his best to support RTS’ mission. “I will do my best to provide the best value of service to our customers in support of the operational mission.” He promised to be a good neighbor, and reinforce the fact that we’re guests of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. “I will work every day to strengthen the strong bond that has been prevalent for many years between our nations.” He concluded by thanking Boehm and the USAKA team and announced the “island sergeant major [is] signing in.” Prioleau came from Fort Bliss, Texas, where he served as brigade operations sergeant major. His wife, Marilyn, and son, JaCobe, 14, stayed in Texas and will come out to visit Kwajalein whenever possible. His role here is the senior advisor to the commander. He is an extra set of eyes and ears. His main function will be to bring advice to the commander from his viewpoint. He is not a decision-maker; he will advise the commander based on what he sees and hears. He will offer a “senior NCO perspective of what he thinks.” His main goal is to “support the quality of life of our community, and uphold to all USAKA policies and Army regulations on behalf of our commander.” He

Photo by Sheila GideonFrom left, cadets Chrystal Chase, Julian Dilley and Chasen Dayton teach an ASVAB prep course to Ebeye residents who wish to join the U.S. military in the future.By Sheila Gideon Managing EditorAfter 19 days in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, visiting Reserve Of cer Training Corps cadets from various universities across the U.S. re ected upon their cultural and language immersion mission here in the RMI. The mission was part of the Cultural and Language Pro ciency program offered to cadets; when chosen, they are sent as a group to various locations across the world to develop cultural awareness and language skills, and help improve their leadership potential. The cadets arrived at Kwajalein July 7 and departed Thursday. During their rst visits, they went to Ebeye during the afternoon to play sports with Marshallese children. They played kickball, football and soccer. The kids already knew basketball and volleyball, but the cadets taught them some new ones, too. They already knew “Red Rover,” but they learned how to play “Freeze Tag.” They also taught the kids how to do the “Hokey Pokey” and the “Macarena.” In the evenings, the cadets taught Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery prep classes for Marshallese residents who wish to join the U.S. military. Each of the seven cadets took turns teaching various subjects including math, science and English skills. A diagnostic exam was given on the rst day and at the end to track progress. “They improved signi cantly,” said Cadre Capt. Jacob Naylor. “It showed me they are capable of learning if they have the environment and resources.” On July 20, the cadets ew to Roi-Namur so they could visit Enniburr for a few days. Original plans for Enniburr changed upon arrival. Instead, cadets mingled with Enniburr residents and learned about their island and See CADETS, page 8


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 28, 2012Article and photos by Mike Sakaio Host Nation LiaisonMonday proved to be the perfect day for a friendly but competitive gathering of tennis enthusiasts from Kwaj and neighboring Ebeye. With cloud covers — which tempered what otherwise would have been a hot, sunny day — and gentle, steady ocean breezes, one could not ask for a better afternoon to showcase the talents of both seasoned and amateur tennis players alike. Hosted by the Kwajalein Tennis Club, the doubles tennis tournament between the Kwaj and the Ebeye Tennis Club members kicked off at 2 p.m., with welcoming remarks by the Kwajalein Tennis Club president, Marc Rivera; this was followed by an invocation by Aruo Aluka of the Ebeye tennis team. With formalities aside, the rst tournament of 2012 kicked off with much excitement and anticipation. The matches were, for the most part, evenly dueled with the declaration of a win going to the doubles pair that reached 10 wins rst. While the resulting scores of any given match may illustrate the dominance of one team over the other at that point in time and place, no amount of score, or dominance for that matter, can describe the all-out effort the players put forth throughout the course of the tournament. The words of encouragement, frequent applause and cheers from both fellow players and the bleachers lled audience more than assured the tournament players that their hustle, their grunts and their showcase of will and effort were very much appreciated.

Win-loss columns tallied and the Kwajalein Tennis Club was declared the winner of the tournament with a 6 to 4 win.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 28, 2012 By Catherine Layton Associate EditorA sometimes arduous process has been signi cantly streamlined, and is up and running for the whole of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Common Access Card users. The CAC of ce has a new appointment scheduler website, and it will give individuals the opportunity to schedule their own CAC appointment and cancel one when needed. Appointments will begin on the website beginning Wednesday, but you can schedule your appointment now. Additionally, if an individual does not have computer access, their supervisor can easily make the appointment for them. When you go to the site, there will be a large calendar. Choose your desired day from the green squares. This link will take you to the times available for that day. Click on the time you want and you’ll be directed to a short form. Fill in your name, sponsoring command, your telephone number and AKO e-mail address. Then select your “personnel type” from the drop-down menu. After you’ve submitted the form, your printable con rmation page will appear. A con rmation will also be sent to the e-mail you inputted on the prior form. Since you will need to bring your AKO e-mail address with you to your appointment, if you print the con rmation from your AKO e-mail account, you will then have both pieces of information on one sheet.The site also offers helpful pointers to help your appointment go smoothly. For instance, in order for you to complete the appointment, you must have two forms of identi cation, one of which must be a valid state or federal government-issued picture identi cation. Along with CACs, dependent ID cards are also issued through the of ce. The sponsor must be present, but if not available, the dependent must have a DD Form 1172 application signed by their sponsor, witnessed by a verifying of cial or notary signature and seal, or a power of attorney. For the most part, this is how a CAC appointments will be set; but in at least one instance, the appointment scheduler will not be needed. If you have received an error message stating you’ve been blocked, locked or input an invalid PIN, “No appointment is needed. This will still be taken care of as a walk-in service,” said Holly Courson, CAC site security manager. The website can also be used to schedule an appointment at another location, if you are perhaps on a temporary assignment off-island. If you click the “Make Appointment” tab on the menu at the top of the main page, you will be directed to the CONUS Identi cation Card Issuance Of ce page, and you will be able to search for an of ce by geographic location. Questions regarding reservations can be directed to the KPD CAC of ce, located in the airport terminal building 901, or by calling Courson at 58496 or 54441.Common Access Card appointments now scheduled onlineGo to: appointment/building.aspx?BuildingId=610 The final page in the process is the confirmation page. There is a print option, but contractors may want to log into their AKO account e-mail and print the confirmation from there. The CAC office will need proof of your AKO and this will take care of both requirements.The third screen is a form page for your information. Note the telephone should be input as 805-355-XXXX, with no parenthesis. After choosing your day, the following screen will list available times for your appointment. Select your time to go to the next page.This is the page you will see to set your CAC appointment. Choose your desired date for your appointment from the greencolored squares.


7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 28, 2012 Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau will serve as the senior advisor to USAKA/RTS Commander Col. Shannon Boehm. SERGEANT MAJOR, from page 3 Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau was born in Orlando. He joined the U.S. Army on March 28, 1986. He attended basic training and advanced individual training at Fort Bliss, Texas. He graduated on July 2, 1986 and was awarded the Military Occupation Specialty of Stinger Crewmember (16S). His previous assignments include: HHB Battery, 1st Battalion 30th Air Field Artillery, Augsburg Germany, where he served as a Stinger Crewmember from 1986 to 1989. From 1989 to 2002, he served in various leadership positions such as section sergeant, platoon sergeant and operations NCO with the 3rd Battalion Air Defense Artillery Fort Stewart, Ga. He then served as tactical noncommissioned of cer at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point from 2003-2005 with the 3rd Regiment U.S. Corp of Cadets in N.Y. From June 2005 to September 2006, he served as the rst sergeant of Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery, rst sergeant of Headquarter Battery, 1st Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery, and the operation sergeant major for 1st Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery. He is a graduate of the U.S. Sergeants Major Academy class 59. He served as the Kuwait forward operation sergeant major for 3rd Battalion, 43rd Air Defense Artillery. He has also served as the 11th ADA BDE intelligence sergeant major and 11th ADA BDE operations sergeant major. Military Career at a Glance: Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleauwill support the commander’s intent, guidance, goals and purposes. Prioleau has already gone on a tour of housing facilities to get a basic understanding of how life at USAKA is. He inquired about how life is here; he’s keen on guring out what recommendations he can pass on to the commander to make life better. He wants to get a lay of the land and understand island operations before he starts making recommendations. He needs to understand the process so he can understand where he can be bene cial. This is not his rst working environment where contractors outnumber active duty personnel. He served as a tactical NCO at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where the population was mostly civilians and cadets. “I understand the complexities that go on with not being the guy in charge, but being the guy responsible for everything that goes on,” he commented. Moving to a remote location was not a life-changing experience for Prioleau. He’d heard of Kwajalein before and had been stationed at remote locations throughout his 26-year career. When you’re “in the military, you can get called to go anywhere in a moment’s notice, so that has been embedded in my mind since I was a young Soldier,” he said. So far, he describes Kwajalein as breathtaking. The scenery was not what he expected. When he got off the plane, he noticed, “The palm trees were beautiful. The grass was green. The ocean was blue. I wasn’t expecting that. … It was very refreshing.” He’s looking forward to travelling to the other islands and visiting with all the island residents. He wants to explore the historical side of the island. He’s also looking forward to challenging himself by learning to scuba dive.


8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 28, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI Photos courtesy of Lavinda Tyson, Wendy Peacock and Keith Peacockculture. They were shown island wildlife and even drank out of fresh coconuts. The language barrier was a dif cult hurdle for the cadets to overcome, but they managed. Usually, someone who knew English would assist with translation. The cadets didn’t have much opportunity to sit down and learn the language, but the children they interacted with helped to teach them some phrases and expressions. They learned greetings and how to introduce themselves. A big lesson for the cadets was learning patience and exibility. This was especially true in ASVAB prep classes – if one way of teaching wasn’t working, they had to quickly think of another angle to make them understand. They also had to learn to read body language. Cadet Miranda Pleggenkuhle described ASVAB students as quiet. It made it hard for her to tell as a teacher whether or not they understood the material. “You just cross your ngers and hope they are because you’re not getting a lot of feedback,” she said. While their verbal communication was eeting, their nonverbal made up for it. In the end, they were able to communicate with each other well enough that the students improved their ASVAB scores signi cantly in just a few days. Overall, their mission here was memorable. Cadet Patrick Lydon would recommend the CULP program to other cadets. “You’re going to learn a lot of life lessons,” he said. “Additionally, you’re just not going to be able to visit places like this on your own. It lets you go see the world and, in addition, experience things and situations you wouldn’t typically.” “It also gives you an opportunity for leadership roles that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to take,” said Cadet Alexandria Schmidt. “Part of this experience isn’t just [about] culture and language,” said Naylor. “[The cadets] get evaluated quite extensively on their leadership potential.” Most of the cadets are going into their second year of ROTC. “In addition to all the culture and fun things they get to do, they also get to do some stuff that will prepare them for their next school year as well.”CADETS, from page 4
