2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 27, 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.

An apprentice would spend years memorizing the night sky, ocean features and other signs like cloud shape and flight patterns of birds. The stick charts were a teaching tool but are not maps in the western sense. The knowledge contained in a stick chart would be meaningless without the guidance of its maker. The information would be committed to memory. Stick charts were not taken out to sea as tools. … Information taken from the website for the Embassy of Republic of the Marshall Islands in Washington, D.C. the gentleman that stopped to help a mom screaming for help at Camp Hamilton, though we never got your Fire ghter Sean Reagan who didn’t hesitate and jumped in the water to rescue a little girl, and to the re department, you are all HEROES.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012MDA director Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly visits Majuro USAKA commander Col. Shannon Boehm, Thomas Armbruster, U.S. Ambassador to RMI, Martin Quinn, Australian Ambassador to the Federated States of Micronesia and the RMI, Lt. Gen. Patrick OÂ’Reilly, MDA director and Cmdr. Peter Metcalfe, Australian Naval Advisor to RMI meet during a visit to Majuro.Story and photos by William P. White USAKA Public Affairs officer Lt. Gen. Patrick OÂ’Reilly, Missile Defense Agency director, visited the U.S. Embassy in Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands, on Oct. 17. He was accompanied by U. S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander Col. Shannon Boehm, along with a contingent of MDA and USAKA staff personnel. The U.S. Ambassador to the RMI, Mr. Thomas Armbruster, along with the Deputy Chief of Mission, Mr. Douglas Carey, met the visiting contingent at the airport and all proceeded to the AmbassadorÂ’s residence. Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly began by talking about RMI education and health issues, as well as the importance of developing a stronger relationship with the RMI. The ambassador continued the discussion by talking about the current strength of the U.S./RMI relationship and how important USAKA is to keeping that relationship strong by providing jobs to RMI citizens. USAKA is the number two employer in the RMI behind the Marshallese government. The ambassador highlighted the USAKA program in which RMI citizens take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test in order to join U.S. military services; the program strengthens the U.S./RMI relationship. Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly moved the discussion forward by talking about possible future engagements within the Ebeye community. He talked of upcoming MDA exercises and how deployed Soldiers and civilians in the area supporting the mission may be available to participate in outreach programs such as education and minor construction projects for the local community at Ebeye. The amount of support personnel who would deploy to Kwajalein during these upcoming missions would be between 400-500 people and they would be ready and willing to help with education and community projects on Ebeye during the downtime they experience at points during mission preparations. The director discussed helping to assist the RMI to become more self-suf cient by creating more economic interest through inviting private organizations to come to the RMI. This would stimulate stronger economic growth by 2023, which is when the RMI is scheduled to be completely independent of nancial aid from the U.S., according to the Compact of Free Association. Carey mentioned the uniqueness of the relationship between USAKA, RMI and U.S. government agencies and how the success of USAKA will ultimately bene t the RMI in the long run. Col. Boehm added information about recent projects and humanitarian efforts performed by U.S. assets who came to Ebeye this past year. First was the economic development project and assessment done by a group of eight U.S. Military Academy at West Point students in January and two groups of eight U.S. Army Recruit Of cer Training Corps cadets from around the U.S. These groups worked this summer with local children on Ebeye helping to instruct them in math and English, as well as training in sports. The USAKA Commander also discussed upcoming events such as Paci c Partnership 2013 and construction civic action details which will involve humanitarian services to include medical and engineering projects on both Ebeye and Majuro. The annual eight week internship program on USAKA hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Lincoln Lab was discussed as well. The program is a valuable opportunity for quali ed RMI citizens to learn technical skills that can be applied to the real world. Following the morning brie ng, Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly met with the embassy staff, providing them insight on the creation of MDA, the organizationÂ’s purpose and how it is a primary customer of USAKA and RTS. The group continued on to visit the Sea Patrol of ce at the port where Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly received a brie ng from Australian Cmdr. Metcalfe. He was also paid an unexpected impromptu visit by Australian Ambassador to the Federated States of Micronesia and RMI, Ambassador Martin Quinn. The group broke for lunch at the Majuro Wellness Center near the Majuro hospital and discussed various ongoing projects and issues with Denis Yates, the center director. Next, the entourage continued on to the Waan Aelon in Majel, or Canoes of the Marshall Islands, which teaches young Marshallese how to prepare for adulthood, focusing on skills such as math, English, canoe building and ocean navigation. The staff gave Lt. Gen. OÂ’Reilly and his contingent a tour of the facility, described how their organization works and the bene ts it has for children who enter the program. The U.S. and RMI relationship is pivotal to the ourishing of the Paci c region, and fostering a stronger partnership into the 21st century and beyond is a key component of political and economic growth in this area of the world. This trip provided a valuable opportunity for a senior U.S. Department of Defense of cial to engage with the U.S. State Department in order to discuss ways to help the host nation country. The interaction points the way to future high-level engagements for a stronger and better alliance between the U.S. and the RMI.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012Visiting teacher introduces the power of yoga Article and photo by Catherine Layton Associate editorUsually, in order for island residents to go on a yoga retreat, one would have to book an exotic vacation to an expensive resort to indulge in the practice. Luckily, hobby shop supervisor and local artisan Denise Dorn’s sister, Becky Weires, is a yoga instructor. She incorporated a week-long yoga retreat in with her visit with Dorn, much to the delight of island residents in need of some focused serenity. Weires came to Kwaj from Boise, Idaho, where she owns her Yoga for Life studio. She was diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age, and was told very early that she needed to keep her muscles strong to keep it in check. She discovered yoga 13 years ago while working as a respiratory therapist and aerobics instructor. She has been teaching at her studio for 10 years. Vinyasa, or ow, style of yoga is Weires’ preferred teaching. “Yoga is like a slow dance. It improves exibility and strengthens the body while relieving stress and calming mind and spirit,” she says. The word Vinyasa means breath-synchronized movement. “Yoga works all the systems of the body; cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive; it just makes you feel wonderful. Breathing is a huge part of it. You have to connect the breath with the movement.” Yoga, according to Weires, “…evolves into a way of life, so it affects you spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Yoga is a communal thing; it helps to have the energy and ow from others around you. You are sharing in an almost spiritual moment. When you practice yoga long enough, it becomes an in uence in all of your choices; eating, drinking, even who you choose to be around. It allows your intuition to nd the opportunity to be heard.” Weires desired to teach because she felt as though she could get everyone to experience yoga. “Every single person can do some form of yoga. You just need to do it, and you will feel better. It enhances every part of your life,” she says. Weires has taken many different classes and training sessions and takes a lot from all the different styles and blends them into her teaching. She incorporates pilates for core strengthening, because, “When you have a strong core and spine, everything else just falls into place. The core and the spine tell the rest of the body what to do. The core and the spine of your body is the guru.” At least ten percent of class time should be the relaxation pose, or savasana, which is a neutral position, a calm, peaceful place to absorb your yoga practice. Weires would be thrilled to offer more retreats on Kwajalein. As the attendance of this retreat made apparent, residents would like her to as well. In the meantime, we should all learn the savasana, and eagerly await her next visit. Namaste.Becky Weires offered a weeklong yoga retreat to Kwajalein residents in October.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 Story and photo by William P. White USAKA Public Affairs officerJamie Zvirzdin, writer, editor, small business owner, and wife of the Political, Consular and Economic Of cer Andrew Zvirzdin at the U.S. Embassy in Majuro, designed a program to help children in the Marshall Islands take a more vested interest in reading and learning. This program, called The Unbound Bookmaker Project, helps children in the Marshall Islands write, illustrate, and publish their own class books. Zvirzdin worked on the pilot book with the help of two friends, Ethel Nelson, a retired U.S. teacher living in Minnesota, and Daryle Newman, an Australian artist based in the RMI. The rst book is called “The Important Book about Majuro” and was completely written and illustrated by 27 fourth graders on Majuro Atoll. With the success of the pilot book, the RMI Ministry of Education and 23 WorldTeach volunteers have agreed to work with Zvirzdin to produce and publish 23 MarshalleseEnglish children’s books. This is no small feat considering that the country has very few children’s books, and none are written by Marshallese children themselves. The way the project works is that the WorldTeach volunteers give the students a topic and then help them brainstorm and create a narrative centered on the topic. These topics range from marine and weather safety to nutrition and exercising to Marshallese legends, traditions, and art. The volunteers work with the students to edit their stories, teaching them the valuable skill of how to re ne their own work. Once this has been completed, the students are taught principles of art and are given the materials to create self-portraits and other illustrations based on the topic. Zvirzdin and her team of typesetters will then take their words and their illustrations and professionally publish the books to Amazon by March 2013. The Ministry of Education is providing the funds to purchase a copy of the book for each child, volunteer and school participating in creating the class book. However, there are many schools, classes and children that did not have a WorldTeach volunteer and will not have access to a copy of any of the books. Because the books are published to Amazon, they will be available for purchase to the general public. “The Important Book about Majuro” is available online now. It has been suggested that volunteers on Kwajalein interested in helping children on Ebeye and other areas in Kwajalein form reading groups based on books created by The Unbound Bookmaker Project. Since Marshallese children are the authors and illustrators of the books, it is hoped that other children in the Marshall Islands will be more interested in reading and learning from the books, particularly on topics that can provide knowledge of important life skills and preserve valuable cultural identities. Kwajalein resident Susannah Prenoveau has been in contact with Zvirdin about potentially completing a new book project on Ebeye, and is looking into starting “reading brigades,” where volunteers read the new books to the children as they become available. Potential volunteers or those who want to donate or help with the upcoming Ebeye projects, should get in touch with Prenoveau. Book project begins in Majuro; promotes reading,writingJamie Zvirzdin presents a copy of the first book, “The Important Book of Majuro,” to MDA director Lt. Gen. Patrick O’Reilly during his visit to Majuro. M i l i t a r y C a s u a l t y Military Casualty Pfc. Shane G. Wilson, 20, of Kuna, Idaho, died Oct. 18 in Khost, Afghanistan.

Without the support of community members, and the cooperation between multiple departments, events such as this would not be possible. The Halloween Carnival was a success, and it is due to your efforts. Special thanks to Col. and Mrs. Boehm for volunteering their home and their time for the destination of our Hay Ride. THE KIDS LOVED IT!!! Thank you to Darryl Mathieson, Anjer Langinbelik and Leander Ishoda for providing us with the necessary staff and transportation for the Hay Ride. This was the rst year we attempted this, and Anjer and Ishoda made it run like clockwork. Thanks to Roy Tomas for ensuring our special pumpkin order, as well as storing and delivering the pumpkins to us. As always, thank you Kim Yarnes and Mandie Morris for loaning us the Halloween decorations and arranging the transportation, as well as offering last minute assistance if needed. Again, thank you everyone for helping support this annual event. Sincerely, Jared Barrick Thank You

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI In my youth, I travelled extensively across the country by motorcycle. I felt a need to break out of my small town to experience life as I’d hadn’t known it as yet. I struck out on my own because I yearned to discover these things in my own way. (Also, because my fellow biker friends at the time thought that I was ‘crazy’ to ride for 12 to 18 hours at a time without stopping!) Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the experience that inspired me to write it.Resident poet shares his art
