They serve alongside their Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. They know the disruption of PCS moves, the sacri ce of separation and the angst of combat deployments. Many of our military spouses give up or are forced to adapt their careers and put the welfare of their service member, family and nation above their own. Our spouses do more than their share of household responsibilities – frequently the ones who take care of the kids, pay the bills, walk the dog, x the at, plug the leak, and any number of things to keep our homes and families vibrant. For all those reasons and more, President Ronald Reagan and Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger in 1984 declared the Friday before Mother’s Day as “Military Spouse Appreciation Day.” One day out of the year is not enough to thank our military spouses, but it provides an opportunity to pause and recognize them for their unwavering service to their military members, families and to the nation. Please join me in recognizing and thanking all of our military spouses on their very special day and especially to all the spouses who have service members deployed into harm’s way! From Diane and me, a sincere thank you to each and every spouse in SMDC/ ARSTRAT and in JFCC-IMD. — Lt. Gen. Richard Formica, SMDC/ARSTRAT Commander • 4-9 p.m., Tonight, Military Spouses bowl for FREE at Kwaj Lanes!

Regena Haugh and Dr. Joyce Winterton, of NASA, and Chris Yanckello, of Orbital, held two presentations and friendly launch competitions with KHS students. The rst group consisted of space program enthusiasts from grades 4-7, and the second group was grades 8-12. The presentations contained information regarding the Wallops Flight Facility, located on VirginiaÂ’s eastern shore, where Haugh and Winterton conduct their work. The Wallops FacilityÂ’s vision is to produce world-class science focused on earth science, sky-to-sea and coastal zone research. After the brief introduction to their mission, Winterton and Haugh explained the components to a rocket and challenged the students to build one of their own made from construction paper and masking tape. The students divided into groups and constructed their best rockets. They went out onto the high school eld where a homemade launcher was used to test which rocket was built to go the furthest. In the rst group, fourth-graders Emma Elkin, Alyssa England, Hunter Gray, Kathryn Montgomery and Julia Sholar blew away the other students and were clearly the winners. In the older group, the competition was more heated, but Dori DeBrum, Rachel DeLange and Stephanie Hibberts ended up building the rocket that ew the furthest. All of the winning students were rewarded with NASA souvenirs. The launchers used both indoors and outdoors will be left at KHS for students to experiment with in the future. Each year, scholarships are awarded to Kwajalein students ages 9-11, to attend a week at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. Winners this year are Kathryn Montgomery, grade 4; Ashley Homuth, grade 4; and Kayla Hepler, grade 5. Each student will receive a Space Camp ight suit and airfare to the program.

Grades K-12 had the opportunity to earn extra credit by participating in the Science Fair held in the MP Room Wednesday afternoon. Kwajalein Range Services provided judges from various departments who walked through at 4:30 p.m.; the fair was open to the public for an hour in the evening. There were three categories of projects: problem solving, informative and experimental. Winners were determined in each division and according to category. Overall highest scores across all categories and ages were: rst place, Danielle Rivera; second place, Alyssa England; and third place, Max Winkler. Full results are listed below. Over 40 students participated in the Science Fair. Some of the younger grades submitted class projects, but most were individual. Projects covered various topics including: which fruit produces the most electricity, shadows, radars, how much sugar is in the beverages we consume, magnets and more. Several displays drew large crowds, including a hover craft designed by Caleb Rowe and “the perfect Kwaj bike” designed by Kathryn Montgomery. Judging was based on how clearly de ned and accurate the information was, the neatness and quality of visual aids, how well-prepared and thought out the project was, and how helpful visual aids and oral presentations were in understanding the project. Kwajalein High School science teachers Matt Gerber and Kristen Hosek organized the event. KRS parent companies, Bechtel National and Lockheed Martin sponsored the event by providing the display materials and awards.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 11, 2013By Molly Premo Media Services InternThe Kwajalein Swim Team held their awards banquet May 3 in the MP room. The results for the previous spring swim season were announced. Before the awards and trophies were handed out, people were given a chance to enjoy a potluck dinner and watch a slide show, made by Kendall Westhoff, featuring swimmers during the past season. In longstanding swim team tradition, tables were wrapped in brown paper with crayons for younger kids to entertain themselves. After dinner, the coaches announced the awards. Trophies were given to the swimmers who earned the most personal bests, were the most improved, and had received the greatest number of points. Personal bests are given to a swimmer every time he or she improves his or her time. Additionally, points are given for every race a person swims. When you win or place in a race, you earn more points. Finally, group pictures were taken and then cake was served. The night ended when the oor was opened to nominations for board members to run KST next season. Though no positions were lled, plans for next swim season have already begun.

Swimmers honored for season accomplishmentsCyclists ride up to 100 miles for cancer awareness Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor What started as a tribute to his hometown in southern Minnesota has turned into a committed annual event here on Kwajalein. Monday marked the fourth year of the bikea-thon event that challenges cyclists to ride up to 100 miles for cancer awareness. Cyclists were sponsored by Kwajalein residents and even stateside friends; all proceeds are given to the American Cancer Society. Total money collected so far this year is $5,000, but donations are still coming in. There were 21 riders this year, all on various bikes and at various skill levels when it comes to cycling. Five completed the full 100 miles: Alan Calvert, Josh Grif n, Jon Jahnke, Al Robinson and Kendall Westhoff. Calvert was here TDY and brought his bike with him. This was RobinsonÂ’s rst participation and he cycled all 100 miles on a recumbent bicycle (see page 9). This was also WesthoffÂ’s rst time, and he also raised the most money: $2,000. The event is conducted in collaboration with the race in Minnesota, which was almost cancelled due to 13 inches of snow two days before the event.

Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The Silver Anniversary of the Ballroom Dinner Dance that took place in the MP Room on Sunday night was very special, as it was the last dance that Dick and Cheryl Shields will host on Kwajalein. The Shields have hosted the elegant event for 25 years, offering Kwajalein residents the opportunity to dress up, dine and dance the night away. The Central Paci cÂ’s Most Dangerous Band also known as the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School Stage Band, practiced all year to provide three sets of songs featuring authentic interpretations to the jazz classics by artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Glenn Miller and Count Basie.In preparation for the dance, the Shields offer dance instruction over several weeks to interested couples and friends. They had the opportunity to show off those skills at the Ballroom Dance. All styles of dance, including the foxtrot, samba, cha cha and waltz made an appearance.
