On Monday, a scuba rescue class was being conducted on Emon Beach. Prior to the start of the exercise involving a “near drowning victim,” the lifeguards and all personnel on the beach were noti ed that it was not a real emergency. When “the victim” was pulled from the water and rescue breaths provided, Dralle was riding his bike past Emon Beach and jumped in to help, not knowing it was a drill. He had only been on Kwaj for 48 hours. It goes to show the good character of people we have on Kwaj. … to two very special young men who demonstrated what true friendship is.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 9, 2013USAKA prepares for potential weather disaster with island evacuation exerciseBy Sheila Gideon Managing EditorLiving on a remote tropical island affords us many opportunities and privileges for our mission and lifestyle. However, the fact that Kwajalein and RoiNamur are located in the middle of the Paci c leaves us vulnerable to certain weather concerns. For this reason, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll emergency operations management team coordinated an emergency evacuation exercise on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur Feb. 28. The exercise simulated a typhoon warning that eventually led to an evacuation for all island residents. AFN Roller and Crawler announcements published “prepare to evacuate” messages to the community beginning at 2 p.m. This was to give residents time to pack a “go bag” and get their family members and pets ready to evacuate. At 6:30 p.m., the “prepare to evacuate” siren was blasted, followed by radio announcements alerting residents of the pending weather watch. At 7 p.m., the “evacuate to shelters” siren sounded, followed by radio, Roller and Crawler messages. At that time, residents were required to move to their designated shelters. At 7:50 p.m., the “all clear” siren was sounded, ending the exercise. USAKA Emergency Operations Manager, Maj. Luke Koerschner, was very satis ed with the outcome of the exercise. “I think the cooperation by the residents went well,” Koerschner said. “The EOC (Emergency Operations Center) team worked well together.” The focus this year was to train new residents on what actions they would need to take in an emergency. There was also focus on making sure the boats at the marina could be crewed; if there was a real typhoon, some of the vessels may be moved out to sea, rather than left tied off on the pier. The other focus was accountability. Kwajalein Range Services managers forecasted where employees would be, whether it was a shelter, hard housing or Bachelors Quarters. Koerschner was impressed with the accuracy of accountability of employees this year. “KRS did a very good job of forecasting where their employees would go,” he said. “We were very pleased with how accountability went.” Next time, the team will concentrate on combining numbers from KRS and USAKA so they can better forecast total numbers for each mass shelter. There were 48 residents who evacuated to the Dental Clinic, 85 to the High School, 102 to Building 602 and two at the Religious Education Building. The priority for Kwajalein Police Department was to check the accountability at the BQs. Their second objective was to check family housing for Occupants Evacuated and Identi ed forms that should have been displayed on quarters. This was executed well, Koerschner said, but there were some lessons learned. There was supposed to be a signup sheet on the second oor for those BQ residents who needed to evacuate from the rst oor. The signup sheet was mistakenly put on the rst oor, so not as many BQ residents signed in as expected. There were several other lessons learned from the exercise. “One consideration is to rezone so that we have fewer people going to the dental clinic,” Koerschner said. Another consideration is to have more rigid plans for where people will go. For changes like this to happen, there needs to be an edit to the emergency evacuation plan in the phonebook; they might wait to make these changes when another edition of the phonebook is scheduled to be printed. There was uncertainty last year concerning pets at the mass shelters. This year, it was advertised that pets were allowed, but had to be transported in a kennel. This year, nobody brought pets, kenneled or otherwise, to the shelters at all. “The upside is that we didn’t have a problem,” Koerschner commented. “The downside is that we really didn’t rehearse how to evacuate our pets.” Other confusion this year had to do with knowing what the sirens meant and the radio announcements. Some residents evacuated at the rst siren that indicated “prepare to evacuate” instead of waiting for the second siren. Radio messages played beginning at 3 p.m., but were requested prematurely by the EOC staff, Koerschner said. The radio message indicated that the “prepare to evacuate” siren had sounded; that siren actually sounded at 6:30 p.m. The messages were discontinued until that time, but had already confused some residents. Next year, the EOC team will look more closely at the community announcements and the timing of when they are aired. Roi was not included to the level originally planned. “We tried to include Roi, but we didn’t incorporate them as much as we would like to,” commented Koerschner. Since all Roi residents live in BQs, their exercise simply consists of moving rst oor residents to the second oor. Next time, Koerschner is considering sending someone to Roi to evaluate their rehearsal. Overall, the exercise was a success. “I think it was a good exercise, especially for people who are new,” Koerschner said. “This was my rst exercise, too. So, not only were the residents learning, but also the new emergency operations center staff.” Even though most of the weather events that would hit USAKA would afford a few days notice, future evacuation exercises will still be conducted to increase readiness. Future exercises may be done as often as twice a year and will most likely happen in October, which is the beginning of typhoon season. There may even be a full-scale evacuation exercise in the future that spans over several days. Feedback on this year’s exercise has been provided by the shelter wardens, but Koerschner invites all residents to offer feedback on the exercise. Email any comments to luke.e.koerschner.mil@mail.mil.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 9, 2013 A Japanese woman collects sand from the beaches of Roi-Namur to remember her ancestors who perished there during WWII.Japanese bereavement group mourns loss of their ancestors during WWIIArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorEvery year, members of the Marshall Islands War-Bereaved Families Association visit Kwajalein and Roi-Namur to honor and mourn their Japanese ancestors who perished during Operation Flintlock in World War II. This year, a group of 14 visited the Japanese cemeteries on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur Tuesday. They built a shrine in front of each memorial lled with fruit, beverages, photos and personal letters. They burned incense as they prayed and sang to remember their loved ones. On Roi, they collected sand from the beach and visited the old Japanese Headquarters Building used during the war. Many of those visiting were just babies when their fathers lost their lives defending Kwajalein and RoiNamur. One man brought a photo of himself as a baby, sitting with his mother and father right before he left for the war. Col. Shannon Boehm showed command support by escorting the group to the cemetery on Kwajalein, while Lt. Col. Dean Wiley accompanied the group to Roi. The group departed Wednesday, but a second, larger group is scheduled to visit next week. The front of the memorial stone on Kwajalein depicts squares that represent each prefecture in Japan. Each square is made from minerals speci c to each region. The back of the stone reads, “In memory of those gallant men who fought and died for their country at the Marshall and Gilbert Islands during the second World War. May they lie in peace.” A Japanese man lights incense at the Japanese Cemetery memorial on Roi-Namur Tuesday.A member of the Marshall Islands War-Bereaved Families Association shows a photo to Lt.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 9, 2013 From www.loc.govThe four major wars in which American women served after World War II can be split into two pairs. Korea and Vietnam were con icts fought in Asian countries divided by the politics of the Cold War. The Persian Gulf War and the con icts in Afghanistan and Iraq were fought in the Middle East and grew out of tensions over aggression in that region and, in the latter instance, the 9/11 attacks. For women, the rst two wars signaled few advances in their roles in military service, but in the two recent wars, the areas of women’s participation expanded immensely, with potentially more dire consequences.In 1950, Clara “Chris” Johnson was a theatrical designer with limited prospects when she decided that the Air Force would provide her with a steady income. Her initial impression of her female colleagues con rmed that she was going to be judged solely on her abilities and not on the color of her skin. She survived a rigorous stint at Of cers Candidate School and a year in Vietnam, and got to retire at an age young enough to have a second career in academia. “I was always impressed with my female colleagues in that I was the only person of color and they were readily accepting of me.” War: Korean War, 1950-1953; Vietnam War, 1961-1975 Branch: Air Force Service Location: Lackland Air Force Base (AFB) and Brooks Field, Texas; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Sealand, Wales; Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio; Ramstein Air Base, Germany; Grif ss AFB, New York; also: Vietnam Rank : Major Place of Birth: MississippiMajor Clara Johnson, Vietnam [1969]In 1950, Mary Weiss, who had never been more than 40 miles from her Indiana home, decided to join the Air Force, then recruiting students at her nursing school.

She also met her future husband, Kenneth Hester, in ight school, and they were married in Tokyo while still in the service. “I was glad to serve. My father had served in World War I.
