4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 4, 2013 Hourglass Reports Sgt. Maj. James N. Ross assumed the top-level noncommissioned of cer responsibility from Command Sgt. Maj. Larry S. Turner to become U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command 10th command sergeant major on April 26. Lt. Gen. Richard P. Formica, USASMDC/ARSTRAT commanding general, spoke at the ceremony of the importance of the NCO as the backbone of the U.S. Army. Formica thanked outgoing CSM Turner for his 35 years of Army service and for his partnership on the SMDC team. He then welcomed CSM Ross onto the team and said he looks forward to the future of SMDC. Ross named new SMDC Command Sgt. Maj.Kwajalein Reclaimed Water Standard ViolationThe Reclaimed Water Document of Environmental Protection requires public noti cation when reclaimed water standards are violated. The reclaimed water system exceeded the Biochemical Oxygen Demand. Per sampling requirements, the sample was collected at the reclaimed water system’s point of entry on April 19. BOD levels are used as an indicator of bacteria levels. However, regular bacteriological sampling within the reclaimed water system shows no increase. No health-based restrictions on the normal use (irrigation, vehicle washing, etc) of reclaimed (non-potable) water are necessary. Additionally, there was no threat to public health or the environment as a result of this BOD exceedance. If you have any questions, please the environmental department 51134.Violation ikijen kakien eo kon Reclaimed Water eo ion KwajaleinDEP ak Reclaimed Water Document of Enviormental Protection ej kamelet bwe en wor kakol ko nan jukjuk in bed eo elanne enaj jonok ko ilo reclaimed water eo ejjab emman ak ewor jorran ko ie.

Dr. Paulette Foster-Galbraith is the new Chief Medical Of cer at Kwajalein Hospital. She is a native Texan and received her MD from the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, where she also completed internship and residency. She is Board Certi ed in Family Medicine and for the rst 13 years of her practice, provided non-pro t primary care on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with the Medical Foundation of South Mississippi. In 2008, she founded The Wellness Center at Gulfport, where in addition to her full time practice, she served as a clinical preceptor for various universities and programs in Mississippi. In 2011, she sold her private practice and her family moved to the small island of Ambergris Caye, Belize, Central America, where she was appointed Assistance Professor of Medicine at American Global University of Medicine and Washington University of Health and Science. As part of their commitment to their new community, she served as a general member of the Board of Trustees for the Ambergris Caye Red Cross, and she and her husband were members of the Board of Trustees for Ambergris Caye Elementary School. In addition to teaching, Galbraith commuted and worked monthly in the Southeastern United States as a locum tenens hospitalist and intensivist. Galbraith’s primary love in medicine is diagnostic anomalies as well as women’s and adolescent care. If you ask Galbraith what her profession is, though, the rst thing she will tell you is that she is a wife and mother of three children, Ian, Bronwyn and Keira. She brings to Kwajalein her personal and of ce mission: “Committed to the health of your body, mind and spirit, one patient at a time, the best I can do.”


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 4, 2013 ALCOHOL L AWARENESS ALCOHOL ALCOHOL ES ALCOHOLISM, HOW TO SEEK TREATMENT By Joan Lanning, Ph.D. KRS Employee Assistance ProgramWhen I rst started working in the area of psychological health, public attitude toward mental health diagnoses often was one of suspicion, fear or belief that the person should and could just get over the problem – individuals should have moral fortitude. With time and education, people have become much more compassionate toward those who suffer from genetic conditions, chemical imbalances or unfavorable childhood experiences that contribute to a variety of dysfunctions. More people from all walks of life are openly sharing battles with diagnoses such as depression, bi-polar disorder and chemical dependency. The public gets it; some people are born with or predisposed to conditions that they have no natural control over, including alcoholism. It is true that people do have some choices that can reduce their dysfunction. For example, people can make choices to take their medication and, in the case of depression, exercise. One of the many bene ts of exercise is that it produces natural chemicals that increase one’s sense of well-being. There are tools that people can master which improve behavior and relationships; but, comprehending the brain’s built-in reward system and how it can go awry in the case of addiction is complicated. In spite of all the information gained from research devoted to alcoholism, it is still puzzling in many ways. Alcoholism has been de ned as a disease. This is a problematical concept for many. You don’t catch alcoholism from someone or have it because of a virus Why do some people become addicted while others have no interest in drinking? In the book “Alcoholism: Development, Consequences, and Interventions” by Nada Estes and Edith Heinemann, ve types of alcoholism are de ned: 1. The continued use of alcohol to relieve body or emotional pain contrary to social rules about occasion and amount of consumption. 2. Heavy drinking producing ill health and social problems without addiction. 3. Loss of control over the amount consumed with increased tissue tolerance to alcohol, adaptive cell metabolism, withdrawal symptoms and craving. 4. A variety of #3 in which the patient does not lose control over the amount consumed on a given occasion, but cannot abstain from the continuous use of alcohol. 5. Binging. Same as #3 but done on a periodic basis. Chemical abuse is complex and the result of many interacting factors. We know that chemical use can have multiple roots – including family history, availability and anxiety or depression – and occurs in a social setting that includes family, a group of friends, a neighborhood, and so on. Accordingly, treatment is complex. “The Addicted Brain” by Michael Kuhar, Ph.D., lists several principles of good treatment: 1. No single treatment is good for all individuals. 2. Subjects must remain in treatment for an adequate period of time to get bene t. 3. Detoxi cation or getting the alcohol/drug out of your system is only the rst stage of treatment. 4. Effective treatment addresses multiple problems of the person. 5. Treatment plans must be continually assessed and modi ed to meet the subject’s changing needs. 6. Counseling and “behavioral therapies” should be part of treatment. 7. Medications are important for some users and can be effective when combined with counseling. 8. Alcoholism and drug abuse are often associated with an additional diagnosis of anxiety or depression. Both need to be treated. 9. Treatment doesn’t have to be voluntary to work. Alcoholics Anonymous (commonly known as “AA”) is a resource that has proven bene cial for millions once they get in recovery. It is based on the power of the group, the power of confession and the development of new levels of selfawareness. AA helps to neutralize the power of the cues that can send a person back into relapse and forces the individual to confront the consequences of their alcoholism. According to Steven Grant of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “These therapeutic processes change the brain…” and compel it to operate as designed prior to its pre-addiction state. There are AA meetings all over the world and online. AA meetings are accessible 24 hours a day. Attendance at AA is con dential, open to only alcoholics (unless otherwise speci ed) and is offered on Kwajalein at 6 p.m., on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Family members can get support from Al-Anon. For additional information, call EAP at 55362 or the hospital at 52225.


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 4, 2013 Athletes test their endurance at RustMan TriathlonPhoto by Julie WathenJane Erekson, of team Blister Sisters, has time for a smile during her laps around the runway.By Bob Sholar KRC Vice PresidentAfter 37 swimmers climbed into the Kwajalein lagoon near the cargo pier, Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau bull horned one of the heartiest sendoffs ever, as of cial starter of the 34th annual RustMan swim-bike-run triathlon on Monday. Prioleau then traveled the course on foot and bike for hours, encouraging participants.Chad McGlinnÂ’s 2 hours, 10 minutes and 47 seconds total time put him rst overall for the third year in a row and the fourth fastest time ever in 34 competitions. In 2012, McGlinn scored the third fastest time ever in 2:08:36. McGlinn plans to PCS this summer and leaves a remarkable legacy in local triathlon. WeÂ’ve watched him morph over the last three years into an endurance machine, and hope he returns for some future RustMan competitions. First for the ladies was Christina Sylvester in 2:44:15, her second ladies title. ChristinaÂ’s husband, Ron, completed his fth RustMan, nishing fourth overall in 2:32:10.The performance highlight was ninth-grader Kendall WesthoffÂ’s 2:17:50. He broke the 26-year-old male high school division record; the old record was 2:18:46 set by Kenny Jourdan. To ensure they would see plenty of him on the course, KendallÂ’s parents, Richard and Cindy, each decided to do their rst complete RustMan alongside him. They saw their son often and suddenly, as he whizzed by during the bike and run loops. We did the math and 12 percent of the solo eld was named Westhoff.When it comes to performance, how could we leave off the 3:28:42 personal record by 69-year-old Victor Langhans, who won the Social Security Eligible division. Ray Drefus became just the fth SSE nisher ever in 4:11:10. The team section was won by a duo with a long RustMan history. Tom Cardillo has been the overall winner four times and Krystal Peterson has won the ladies division twice. Having missed training time for various reasons, they teamed this year and won that section in 2:16:28. Oh yes, both have oneyear-old sons! A pleasing aspect of triathlon at Kwajalein is the diversity of the eld: Army of cers, Department of the Army civilians, high school students, young mothers, clerics, mechanics, radar professionals, teachers, and this year, a U.S. ambassador. U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Thomas Armbruster, visited from Majuro and swam for a team, as did his son Bryan. They nished their swims and dashed to the airport to catch the ight back to Majuro, taking off before their teammates nished. The lone purist on a one speed bike was Mike Savage doing his fourth RustMan. Tire problems slowed him this year. The eld included many rst-time solos, who watched the event for years and nally got the bug: Jon Mitchell, DeDe Hall, Alison Bowers and Nick Yarnes. There were no serious road rash cases or dehydration requiring IV uids this year. Some bikers did experience at tires. Lagoon swim conditions were not ideal and the times of repeat swimmers were slower than last year. The event was co-sponsored by Kwajalein Running Club and Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities department. Rich Erekson finishes the run portion of his solo RustMan competition. Ben Souther begins the bike portion of the RustMan.
