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.

Way to start 2013 out right, Tony! ... to whoever picked up the trash can and trash that got knocked over by the wind in my front yard. Thanks for such a nice deed!There has been a shortage on some Shoppette items recently, like soda and chips. There were dif culties with AAFES containers on the last two barges. Chips were ordered through Honolulu, however, due to nitrogen gas in the bags to decrease breakage, they exploded. Soda shipments also experienced similar dif culties. We are optimistic that all products will be on the next barge. Sun bikes were ordered in May 2012. The company had dif culties lling the order, but I have been informed that the order will be lled in mid-February.— Jeff Sweetenburg, Exchange General Manager, Kwajalein While there were quite a few residents who resolved to change their ways and took on the usual resolutions of losing weight or quitting a bad habit, most Kwajalein and Roi-Namur residents want one thing for 2013: residential high speed internet available on island and in their quarters. So, rather than list every individual entry for the same desire, here is your one collective 2013 wish: high speed internet...please! Continue reading other resolutions on page 3.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 The RMI boat, Eanin Meto was rescued just off Carlson Island on Dec. 28. KSAC and KRS Marine Department responded and assisted with escorting the vessel back to Ebeye Pier.Boat rescued off Carlson IslandHourglass Reports In a joint effort by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Republic of the Marshall Islands, a distressed boat was rescued late on Dec. 28. Kwajalein Security and Access Control, and Kwajalein Range Services Marine Department personnel teamed with an RMI vessel, Li Jako to rescue the Eanin Meto At around 4:30 p.m., Eanin Meto called the RMI Liaison, Lanny Kabua, on Kwajalein to request assistance. A faulty fuel system had stalled their engines and they were drifting off Carlson Island with 120 passengers aboard. Kabua called the Host Nation Of ce, who noti ed the proper authorities. The Marine Department and KSAC sent two boats to assist. Jeff Booty and Yoshi Kemem captained the Peacekeeper while Charlie Murillo prepared one of the ferry boats to act as a tow vessel if necessary. Li Jako responded and offered to tow.Eanin Meto was visually located by Booty approximately three miles east of Carlson in the lagoon. Many of the 120 passengers were suffering the ill effects from being aboard a boat bouncing around at the mercy of the elements. The stiff easterly breeze would dangerously push the Eanin Meto onto the west reef within hours. Li Jako successfully towed the Eanin Meto to the Ebeye Pier. Booty and Murillo tailed the two vessels in the event of a mechanical or medical issue that would require further assistance. All vessels, including the crew and passengers aboard, were safely returned around 7:45 p.m. Carlson Island • Study for certi cations, get in shape, save money • Go back to school and keep working on my education. I’m really looking forward to improving my golf game and kitesur ng skills. I also want to work on my singing abilities, or lack of I should say. • God, family, work, relax, that order • That’s easy – lose weight! • Organize my life, manage my time and actually nish something • Be kinder, nicer, and more understanding • I don’t like a place with no garage, so I’m going to leave Kwaj • Be as kind as I possibly can to all those I encounter, go to Australia with my husband and eat healthier • Learn how to use a smart phone, return to Bali, and last but not least...lose the 25 pounds that I didn’t lose in 2012, 2011, get the picture! • Be nicer to people and remember to say “thank you” (in a timely manner) when I get things. Also, maybe take better care of my health. • Further my education • Watch the Superbowl (49ers vs. Patriots if necessary), say hi to everyone even if I don’t know who they are, and last but not least learn to cook from Mr. Saulibio (every time he cooked, BROKE MY MOUTH) • Expand my vocabulary of IT Acronyms…just knowing what they stand for, not necessarily what they mean • My goal is to get my savings built up. I became debt free on Dec. 21, 2012. • Spend time in Europe this summer, spend Christmas on the Mainland with families this year, slow down and enjoy life here to the fullest and have friends who love to come here... here again • I resolve to spend more quality time with my family and to never miss an opportunity to show them I love themSee RESOLUTIONS, page 12


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013Looking after our neighbors, co-workers Hourglass ReportsThe USAKA Host Nation Of ce is located in building 730, just behind the Post Of ce. The of ce is staffed by three personnel: Maj. Alonzo Garcia, Host Nation Director; Michael Sakaio, Senior Island Liaison; and William P. White, Island Liaison. The function of the HNO is as a direct connection and liaison between USAKA and the local population and government in the Kwajalein Atoll area. The job entails dealing with a wide variety of daily and unique issues that occur between the Marshallese population, their local/national government, and the USAKA command and residents. One of these issues covers the coordination of activities impacting the social and cultural welfare of the local inhabitants in accordance with the Compact of Free Association between the United States and the RMI. An example of this would include entry and exit from USAKA from the airport and the dock security checkpoint. Approximately 900 RMI citizens from Ebeye work on USAKA and they provide a continual ow of people at both the DSC and airport. The HNO ensures, along with the provost marshal and Kwajalein Security and Access Control, that entry and exit from the island by local nationals is done in an orderly and ef cient manner. This includes on-post workers as well as invited guests who have cause to be on the island. Regular, daily commute list visitors are submitted by the RMI Liaison Of ce for RMI distinguished visitors and Ebeye business personnel to have access to USAKA for of cial business on the island. Other entry and exit business allows host nation personnel onto the island who wish to travel to Roi and Enniburr using the Metro Liner (on a space available basis) or to see a family member off at the airport to travel on United Airlines or Air Marshall Islands; these issues are coordinated through the HNO along with the PMO and KSAC. Another common issue coordinated by the HNO is the purchase of Exchange goods by authorized RMI military personnel visiting this area and their family members. The military personnel or family member must show proof of an authorized military or dependent ID card and then have HNO type up a letter allowing purchase at the Exchange only while in the area; this document will be recognized by both the Exchange and KSAC when the person wishes to transport purchased items off the island through the DSC. The HNO assists when Ebeye residents pass away and there is no room at the morgue there; this is when the RMI will make an of cial request for use of USAKA morgue services on a space available basis. If authorization is allowed, this would include permission to store the deceased in the USAKA morgue as well as an exception to policy to purchase a small amount of items such as food and beverages from the Exchange to coordinate the wake service here; this is all coordinated by the HNO along with the PMO, DSC and hospital. Other duties of the HNO include maintenance of liaison, and arrangement and participation in meetings with traditional leaders of both the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government and the national government in Majuro and their RMI representatives on matters pertaining to Marshallese personnel employed on USAKA. This includes meetings such as the Community Relations Council (held quarterly on Kwaj or Ebeye) and the Joint Committee Meeting (held annually in Majuro or on occasion in Hawaii). The of ce also coordinates and monitors activities involving USAKA-af liated contractors, private and voluntary organizations, and private individual interaction with the Marshallese to ensure that no activities harmful to RMIUSAKA relations are conducted and that no agreements are violated. This duty includes arrangements with NGOs that perform free medical services on Ebeye for the community. The HNO will arrange the visit to include on-island transportation, hospital coordination with USAKA and Ebeye, billeting here on island, and all other necessary services to facilitate the humanitarian mission. Organization by the HNO includes facilitating cultural events, such as the annual Marshallese Trade Fair and Manit Day, that allow RMI citizens to come to USAKA, showcase and sell their retail goods, as well as express their native habits to the residents here for better cultural understanding between the two nations. The of ce assists in monitoring the logistical contractor efforts in job training programs such as the MIT/LL annual summer internship program for two quali ed Marshallese citizens. The HNO also coordinates distinguished visitor visits by U.S. government and RMI of cials to USAKA. This includes entry, lodging, transportation, tours, meetings and more. The HNO is a place where many issues develop and affect both the island and host nation residents. They stand ready to assist and help both countries to move forward to ensure a better understanding and relationship between the U.S. and the RMI.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 Thomas Cardillo spikes the ball during the KSA volleyball tournament Sunday, while teammate Ben Bartyzel looks on. Their team won the tournament, including teammates Mark Houseman and Dave Medora, not pictured.Keeping active through the holidaysKSA hosts basketball, volleyball tournaments Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Kwajalein Sports Association kept island sports enthusiasts busy over the holiday weekends with two tournaments. The 3-on-3 basketball tournament was held the weekend of Christmas, on Dec. 23-24. Five teams entered, but only one claimed victory. Games were played from 1-4 p.m. at the Corlett Recreation Center gym. It was a triple elimination format with games played to 15 points. The honor system was used and teams called their own fouls and free throws. In the championship game, Team Leines secured the winning title, 15-8. Their team consisted of Kenny Leines, Dave Gray, Freddie Grif n, Ted Glynn and Wes Kirk. They beat out Team Lelet, with Angelo Lelet, JJ Wase and Keith Brady. KSA teamed with AnthonyÂ’s Pizza to host the rst annual team beach volleyball tournament this weekend. Play was supposed to be a two-day affair, however, the teams all agreed to play an extended tournament on Sunday only. The sun was bright, but boy was it windy. Luckily, teams changed sides every 10 points because the high winds were causing a lot of out-of-bounds serves and returns. Teams played best out of three games. Winner went to the winners bracket, while the losers went to the losers bracket for a chance at redemption. Teams consisted of Kwajalein teens, visiting college students, Kwajalein residents and even some Roi residents joined in on the fun. There were a lot of close calls, dramatic dives into the sand and upsets during the tournament. Team Floaters just came off a championship win in the A League indoor volleyball season. They were expected to go far in this tournament, but unfortunately were met with some resistance from the Wase clan. In the end, it was team Thomas Cardillo, Ben Bartyzel, Mark Houseman and Dave Medora who claimed victory. They faced off against returning college student Leimamo Wase and her brothers JJ and Jared, along with friend Ian Balag. AnthonyÂ’s Pizza offered drinks and pizza to all tournament participants. T-shirts were also ordered for everyone who played. g se rv e c h t i on o o e d o f v isi ti n n de d d d d nt n s, d de nt s R R R R R R R Ro R R R R R R R R R R R R R i re o n t h Laura Callaway bumps the ball during the volleyball tournament Sunday afternoon.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 KRC “runners” parade around Kwaj to bring in the New YearArticle and photos by Bob Sholar KRC Vice President In its 30+ year history, Kwajalein Running Club’s New Year’s Eve Midnight Run has evolved. We should put quote marks around ‘Run.’ Almost no one runs anymore! The event is now a parade of decorated noisy revelers, lit up with glow necklaces and wearing some very silly hats. Those who put on the umbrella hats made good use of them this year, as a downpour erupted around 11:30 p.m. The ‘race’ course is two miles long and contestants start at a time of their choosing. The goal is to be the, uh...‘runner’ to cross the nish line before midnight. Approximately 130 runners could see a clock (RTS synchronized) at the start area, but once on their way, were not allowed to carry time indicators of any sort. A quiet nish line was maintained. It may seem simple to gure when to start, but Jon and Anne Jahnke operated a sparkling beverage stop at their quarters near the 1.5 mile point. Individually unforeseeable socialization opportunities, plus time-to-pour-and-sip aspects complicated the calculations. It is kind of like the salt in strong encryption algorithms. Two prizes were awarded: last adult and last student nishers. The student winner was Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School graduate Aubrey Sanborn, now a visiting college student, who nished at 11:59:48. The adult was Mark Long, who walked with family and friends, but instinctively broke into a run in the last 100 yards and nished at 11:59:59.5. Long’s feat was witnessed by the KRC of cial timer and impromptu deputies Makena Moseley and Maddy Greene. Each winner received a 5-pound Hershey chocolate bar. Long immediately broke his bar into pieces for all to share. DJ Neil Dye played dance music at the Emon Pavilion nish area until 2:30 a.m., perhaps partly due to Long’s generosity with his chocolate.
