3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. The day of September 15 is signi cant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day, or Da de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period. The term Hispanic, as de ned by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to Spanishspeaking people in the United States of any race. On the 2000 Census form, people of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin could identify themselves as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or “other Spanish/Hispanic/ Latino.” More than 35 million people identi ed themselves as Hispanic or Latino on the 2000 Census. came up a bit short when she enlisted to serve in World War II; she was 4’11”, one inch short of the minimum height. But she had two great advantages: three years of college and she spoke Spanish and English, so the Army Air Force waived their height requirement. She spent two years in the Paci c Theater, 1944 in New Guinea and 1945 in the Philippines, as an administrative aide. Living conditions in New Guinea were exceptionally primitive, but the camaraderie among the troops made up for the persistent mosquitoes and absence of basic amenities. Though she was far from the action, she did escape disaster once, when a plane on which she was to take on a tour of New Guinea crashed in the jungle. joined the Puerto Rico Army National Guard at age fteen in order to attend their summer camp with his friends. Little did he know that he would spend the next thirty-six years of his life serving with the U.S. Army, deploying to Berlin, when the Wall was being built; to Vietnam for two tours of duty; to the volatile Military Demarcation Line between North and South Korea; and to Nicaragua, when the Sandinista National Liberation Front overthrew the Somoza regime. In Vietnam, while still in his late twenties, he served as an advisor to a South Vietnamese infantry battalion; seven years later, his duties were in operations, administration and logistics. Ponton ended his long military career as the U.S. Army representative in the faculty at Inter-American Defense College in Washington, D.C., having learned to advise and command at increasingly higher levels while still holding sentimental feelings for his troops.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 IMCOM transition: the evolution beginsOct. 1 marks the of cial start of the new command at USAKA U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll has added another command to the islands, with Oct. 1 marking the beginning of the transition for USAKA from USASMDC to Installation Management Command for the governing of base operations, mission support and facilities management. The transition process will take place over the next 12 months to complete the transfer between the two higher commands. Coordination between USAKA, IMCOM-Paci c, the regional headquarters that will oversee USAKA, SMDC and IMCOM HQ’s has been ongoing for over two years. At the heart of these discussions has been gaining a complete understanding of the processes, systems and mechanisms currently providing services and life support to USAKA residents and its customers in order to better frame the transition of responsibilities for the functions IMCOM will begin to oversee. The intent is to make sure that we, at minimum, sustain ability to adequately address the needs and requirements of this remotely located installation and its population, adhering to the Senior Mission Commander’s guidance of ‘doing no harm’ to the community and work force as we begin transition. Although this transition will result in many changes both organizationally and procedurally for USAKA, the main priority of the installation—supporting the Range mission—will remain constant. Background of IMCOM: IMCOM, a single organization with regional of ces worldwide, was activated on Oct. 24, 2006, to reduce bureaucracy, apply a uniform business structure to manage U.S. Army installations, sustain the environment and enhance the well-being of the military community. It consolidated three organizations under a single command as a direct reporting unit: • The former Installation Management Agency • The former Community and Family Support Cen-The crest of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command is the of cial symbol of its status as a military unit. It appears on IMCOM colors and the uniforms of its Soldiers. The crest design is a seven-sided device, gold-color metal and enamel, consisting of a diagonally crossed gold chain links, left and right, attached in the middle by a gold ring, all mbriated green, surmounted by a pair of gold crossed swords. At the bottom of the design is a black tripartite scroll inscribed “SUSTAIN, SUPPORT, DEFEND” in gold. The crest’s symbolism begins with the prominent color of scarlet, which is the color traditionally used by support units, with which the Installation Management Command is associated. The heptagon suggests the seven geographic regions overseen and serviced by the organization. The chain links signify durability, while the ring denotes continuous service. The combination of the chain links and ring symbolize the Installation Management Command’s continuous worldwide support to all the soldiers, civilians, their families and units. The swords refer to teamwork a nd the focus on preparing and training soldiers for combat to defend and protect. Yellow re ects the high honor and values of IMCOM. Green, associated with the agency’s parent organization, assistant chief of staff for Installation Management, represents the I MCOM’s stewardship of installations. Black re ects the command’s determination to execute their missions to support the garrisons throughout the regions. The distinctive unit insignia was approved on August 15, 2002. It was amended to revise the symbolism on November 22, 2005. It was redesignated effective October 1, 2006, for the Installation Management Command with the symbolism updated. The Installation Management Command CrestThe Hourglass ReportsVision: Army installations are the Department of Defense standard for infrastructure quality and are the provider of consistent, qualit y services that are a force multiplier in supported organizations  mission accomplishment, and materially enhance Soldier and Fam ily wellbeing and readiness. Mission: Our mission is to provide Soldiers, Civilians and their Families with a quality of life commensurate with the quality of their service.ter, now called Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command, which is a subordinate command of IMCOM. • The former Army Environmental Center, now called the Army Environmental Command, which is a subordinate command of IMCOM. Before IMCOM, the Army’s 184 installations were managed by 15 Major Commands. In September 2001 Army Secretary Thomas E. White introduced the Transformation of Installation Management, formerly known as Centralized Installation Management, pledging the Army would implement better business practices and realign installation management to create a more ef cient and effective corporate management structure for Army installations worldwide. On Oct. 1, 2002, the Army formed IMA as a eld operating agency of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management as part of an ongoing effort to realign installations. IMCOM, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, oversees all facets of installation management such as construction; barracks and Family housing; Family care; food management; environmental programs; well-being; law enforcement and security, Soldier and Family morale, welfare and recreation programs; logistics; public works and installation funding, among other functional elements encompassing base operations.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012Students interact with SMART Boards Roanna Zackhras, Molly Premo, Dori DeBrum and Dave Bonham use the SMART Board in Carol Hockenberger’s geometry class at the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School. Verlene Lorok takes her turn at the SMART Board in Cher Kirk’s third grade class. The class was able to read the book together using the internet and the Smart Board, and even do a quick review of the story.Story and photos by Catherine Layton Associate editorInnovative products are introduced into our daily routines on a regular basis. Some have great impact, including the newest technology to hit Kwajalein schools, the SMART Board, an interactive projection display. The key to the SMART Board technology is the interactive touch whiteboard. Students and teachers utilize special pens and erasers to engage the program. They can move objects with their ngers on the touch-enabled surface. Students can physically interact with lessons by moving letters, numbers, words and pictures with their ngers. Teachers can create dynamic lessons, multiply learning potential with multimedia les, explore websites, give presentations or take virtual eld trips right from the interactive whiteboard.“It’s a lot easier to keep engaged and the information seems to stay with you better,” said Dave Bonham, a tenth grader in Carol Hockenberger’s geometry class. “They are sort of afraid of it to begin with, but as they use it more they become more con dent. It has been great for their notes. They keep those in their binders and look back as needed,” added Hockenberger.Third grade teacher Cher Kirk had written a grant to get a SMART Board in her classroom in Texas. She received the grant, but was only able to use that board for three weeks before moving to Kwajalein. “I was thrilled to nd out that I had one in my room here,” she said. “I believe children learn best when they are engaged in a lesson. The SMART Board provides all kinds of ways for students to be engaged in learning.” There have been some hurdles to overcome with the new technology, though, particularly in our rather remote environment. “For me, it is not having other teachers who are trained with [SMART boards], so if I have a question I nd the answer myself,” noted Hockenberger, and added that the internet restrictions and slower speeds make it dif cult to download lessons and update the software. Kirk also mentioned some challenges in sorting through a plethora of information, “There are all kinds of websites out there where teachers from all over the world can share lessons that they have created for the SMART Board with other teachers. A challenge is nding time to create or locate just the right lesson.”As time goes by, the Kwajalein teachers will be able to build upon their lessons from year to year, and will better utilize the technology at their ngertips. For now, students are getting a real feel for the boards, and are experiencing a truly interactive classroom experience. “I feel that they really do respond in a positive way. They love all the different ways they can interact with the SMART Board,” concluded Kirk.
