Land is a focal point for social organization in this island nation. All Marshallese have land rights as part of a clan, or jowi, that owes allegiance to an Iroij (chief), is supervised by the Alap (clan head), and supported by the Rijerbal (workers). The Iroij have ultimate control of such things as land tenure, resource use and distribution, and dispute settlement. The Alap supervises the maintenance of lands and daily activities. The Rijerbal are responsible for all daily work on the land including cleaning, farming and construction activities.Thumbs Up!... to Dr. Christiana Bertocchi for your kind care and professional followup.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 25, 2013Photo courtesy of U.S. Military Academy at West Point1st Lt. Paul Michel DeMeo passed away unexpectedly May 14. DeMeo was born and raised for most of his life on Kwajalein.In Memoriam: Paul Michel DeMeoHourglass Reports U.S. Army Ranger 1st Lt. Paul M. DeMeo, 23, of Derry, N.H., died unexpectedly May 14 while stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. DeMeo is remembered by his parents, Paul and Lucienne DeMeo, of Derry, as being “a prince who God called back to His kingdom.” Paul Sr. lives and works on Kwajalein as a systems engineer. “Paul was a charming person who always looked out for his brothers and sisters,” his mother said. “As an Army of cer, Paul looked out for his troops as if they were family. He was humble and always driven to do better,” she said. “He had the most beautiful smile.” DeMeo was serving as a ri e platoon leader for Company B, 2nd Battalion, 505th Infantry, 3rd Brigade Combat Team. Born at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands on Oct. 1, 1989, DeMeo was a 2011 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering management. He was a 2007 graduate of Pinkerton High School. He joined the 2nd/505th in August 2012. DeMeo was a 2012 graduate of the Infantry Of cer Leadership Basic Course, U.S. Army Ranger School and U.S. Army Airborne School. In his current assignment as a ri e platoon leader, DeMeo was responsible for leading an airborne infantry platoon capable of deploying in 18 hours to ght and win against a determined enemy. He was responsible for the health, welfare and performance of 38 paratroopers, as well as the care and accountability of more than $500,000 worth of unit equipment. His awards and decorations include the Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Air Assault Badge, the Parachutist Badge and the Ranger Tab. DeMeo decided to join the military while he was still living on Kwajalein. Within a few months of moving to Derry, DeMeo joined the Air Force Junior ROTC at Pinkerton Academy. He was a member of the AFJROTC drill team, the Cadet Commander during his senior year at Pinkerton, and received many local and national AFJROTC awards. DeMeo played ute and piano. He joined the Kwajalein Swim Team at age 4 and held pool records at Kwajalein. While in high school, he participated in several national young leaders conferences. He was an active member of the Kwajalein Tennis Club and by the age of 8 was playing in tournaments; he was a part of the youth team that played in the Micronesian Cup at the U.S. Embassy Tennis Courts in Majuro. His performance was good enough that representatives of the RMI government asked him to play for the RMI in the Olympics. He declined, feeling that he was too young and didn’t think he was in the same class as the older people he would be competing against. In a tournament on Kwajalein, he played to a tie breaker that seemed like it would go on forever, forcing the seasoned adults to pull out rule books to gure out how a tie breaker was supposed to be played. After the tie breaker, several of the better adult players started asking DeMeo to play with them. One summer while at West Point, DeMeo was sent to England to participate in the nal eld exercises for the graduating class of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He also participated in the Sandhurst competition at West Point every year while he was at West Point. During the force on force phase, his Plebe year, members of the “bad guys” said DeMeo was considered the key person on his team to be taken down. They didn’t get him. DeMeo was the oldest of four siblings. His twin brothers, Nathen and Pascal DeMeo, will graduate from West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy respectively. His sister Lee is a senior pre-med student at Syracuse University. In addition to his parents of Derry, he is survived by his twin brothers, Nathen and Pascal, both of Derry; his sister, Danya Aleesa DeMeo, of Derry; his girlfriend, Hannah Farmer of Charlotte, N.C.; his paternal grandfather, DeMeo J. DeMeo of Newton, Mass.; his maternal grandmother, Amonia Valbrun, of Derry; as well as many extended family. In lieu of owers, memorial contributions may be made to Junior ROTC Program, Pinkerton Academy, 5 Pinkerton St., Derry, N.H., 03038.

Fred Cunningham tries to tee off and land on the green of Hole 6 during Target Golf.FORE! a good time, play the Coral OpenGolfers brave rain, heat at annual Kwajalein golf tournamentArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorMother Nature was not very kind to Kwajalein golfers for the 44th annual Coral Open tournament held May 12 and 19 at Holmberg Fairways. Despite the rain the rst weekend, and the sweltering heat on Sunday, over 60 golfers competed in the second-largest tournament of the year. For the second year in a row, Mark Kaneko and Rihna Hampson secured the lowest gross score (computed without a handicap) for men and women. Lowest net score (computed with a handicap) went to Ralph Gary and Kim Parker. While the not-so-great weather conditions proved to be dif cult for some golfers, which led to several withdrawals the rst and second weekends, others were able to uphold their game. Some golfers even shined; Johnny Jennop and Kaneko each secured an eagle during tournament play. There were of course your typical “sand baggers” (golfers who play poorly to gain a high handicap and then miraculously play well during a tournament) that were called out in jest, and named so on the scoreboard in the clubhouse. “Sand bagger” or not, there were some new names on the leader boards this year compared to previous years. During the week separating the two tournament play days, special games were held for golfers who wished to participate. On May 15 and 17, the Mixed and Men’s Horse Race was held at the golf course. Golfers with a high handicap were paired with a low handicap and they played ve holes in an alternate shot style; pairs with the highest score at each hole were dropped until it came down to the three winning teams. During the tournament, certain holes hosted various challenges: longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin. There was even a chance to win a new Sun bicycle, donated by Matson, if you were lucky (or skilled) enough to shoot a hole-in-one at hole 4; if the hole in one feat is not met, which it was not again this year, the bicycle is raf ed off at the golf banquet as a door prize. Hole Kim Parker hits on the fairway of Hole 5 during the Coral Open.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 25, 2013Kwajalein Scouts “rough it” at Coral Sands for their big weekend campoutArticle and photo by Glen McClellan Kwajalein Troop 314 ScoutmasterThis past weekend, the Scouts held their annual Family Camping Trip at Coral Sands. Once each year, the Boy Scouts invite the Cub Scouts for a combined family campout. The weather was perfect. After setting up camp, the Scouts put together a super-fast zip line. Everyone got into the fun, zipping along at enjoyable speeds. Some folks dragged their feet to slow down at the very end, but most kept going strong until they hit the hard stop. It was a fun, wild ride! Next year, the Scouts would like to set up the zip line running from land way out into the lagoon. Later, parents lounged on the beach while Scouts and siblings built sand castles, snorkeled, swam and played in the surf. The next big organized activity of the day was the Scout Blanket Toss, a Scout tradition going back over 30 years. Scouts and parents held onto the edge of a super-heavy-duty tarp while kids took turns being tossed high into the air. On the return trip to earth, the tarp acted as a safety net to catch the falling kids. The level of excitement was very high with loud cheers and laughter at every toss. Following the Blanket Toss was the Cub Scout Award Ceremony. Cub Scouts were presented awards from their respective Den Leaders. The Cub Scout leaders this year were: Angela Mitchell (Tigers), Jay Rowe (Wolves), Susannah Prenoveau (Bears), Peter Parker (Webelos), and John Mitchell (Cubmaster). Camp res are not allowed in the existing Coral Sands re pit, so Doug Helpler came to the rescue with a custom-made, portable, open-top metal barbeque that worked great for a camp re on the beach. Scouts broke out marshmallow sticks and started cranking out s’mores at an unsustainably high rate. Parents relaxed in chairs on the beach around the camp re while Ben Janke played the bongo drums. Towards the end of the evening was the (un)traditional game of Capture the Flag. It was the Boy Scouts versus the Cub Scouts, played at night, up and down the beach, with no ashlights and no boundaries. They used ashing blue and red markers for the ags. The sky was clear and the moon was shining bright. In the end, with greatly superior numbers, the Cub Scouts managed to claim a 3-2 victory.Lights out was a little after 10 p.m. From Kwajalein’s unique position near the equator, both the Southern Cross (navigation marker pointing to the South) and the Big Dipper (pointer to the North) were clearly visible in the night sky at the same time. The majority slept in tents, but a few folks slept under the stars with perfect temperature, no bugs, the calming sound of the surf and a gentle breeze. Folks back in the states can only dream of spending a night like this in paradise. Addison Baldy flies through the air courtesy of his fellow Scouts and the Blanket Toss during a campout at Coral Sands this wee kend.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 25, 2013NASA missions successful DISPATCH FROM ROI NASA ReportsThe following article is a collaboration of information from four separate articles published to the NASA website. To view the full articles, visit www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/.A NASA-funded sounding rocket mission was launched from Kwajalein Atoll earlier this month to help scientists better understand and predict the electrical storms in Earth’s upper atmosphere. These storms can interfere with satellite communication and global positioning signals. There were two missions: one called EVEX, for the Equatorial Vortex Experiment, which launched two rockets for a 12-minute journey through the equatorial ionosphere above the South Paci c; the other was called MOSC, for the Metal Oxide Space Cloud experiment, which launched two rockets that released a Samarium vapor, creating a red cloud of charged particles in the ionosphere. Researchers from the Air Force Research Laboratory studied the cloud as it dispersed and its impact on radio transmissions sent from multiple locations. The rst rockets traveled up to a height of 220 miles. The second rocket was launched two minutes later and traveled up to 120 miles. By staggering the timing of the launches, the two rockets were able to gather data simultaneously at two altitudes through the ionosphere as they traveled their independent trajectories. The two rockets recorded data about the electric elds and the density of the charged particles in the region. Each rocket also released a stream of lithium or trimethylaluminum (TMA) that could be seen from the ground. Groups of scientists at various locations on the atoll observed the lithium and TMA as it blew in the wind. Together, the observations can be triangulated to show how the neutral wind moved during the ight. The neutral winds are believed to be an important part of what causes the ionosphere storms.“I like the analogy: ‘You win some, you lose some, and sometimes you hit a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth.’ That’s what happened last night with MOSC.” — Keith Groves, Co-Principle Investigator of MOSC Mission The ionosphere is a crucial layer of charged particles surrounding our planet. This layer serves as the medium through which high frequency radio waves travel, such as those sent down to the ground by global positioning system satellites. Governed by Earth’s magnetic eld, high-altitude winds, and incoming material and energy from the sun, the ionosphere can be calm in certain places or times of day, and quite turbulent at others. There are times when the ionosphere becomes rippled like a funhouse mirror, disturbing radio signals, and introducing GPS errors. The two rockets measured events in two separate regions of the ionosphere to see how they work together to drive the ionosphere from placid and smooth to violently disturbed. Such information could ultimately lead to the ability to accurately forecast this important aspect of space weather.The research goal is to study whether turbulence at sunset in the E-region of the ionosphere could serve as a warning of storms in the higher F-region an hour or two later.Kwajalein Atoll is near the magnetic equator, where post-sunset ionospheric storms are more intense, making the site an ideal location for these studies. Post-mission questions, answered by Glenn Max eld, Orbital Sciences Launcher Systems Manager: Q1: What are the preliminary results alluded to by the science team after taking an early look at the data?A1: Both EVEX and MOSC mission primary investigators were very happy with the data collected. They have much work to do to analyze collected data, but are very con dent that the missions will produce better understanding of space weather. As with many scienti c studies, these experiments will likely lead to new questions about ionosphere storms. Our scientists started discussions about the next investigations they would like to conduct and will be submitting proposals to return as soon as possible.Q2: Will there be a follow up study in the future? Will it be here at Kwajalein again? A2: NASA has received a request to determine if a mission could be conducted two years from now with a larger vehicle (rocket). This mission will require a southerly trajectory allowing the payload to y near the magnetic equator. We have begun working with USAKA ight safety to formulate a plan to support this mission. As with all NASA missions, selection and funding comes from NASA headquarters. We should know by the end of 2013 if this mission will be funded. Q3: How often were NASA missions conducted at Kwajalein Atoll in the past compared to your outlook for the future? A3: In the past 23 years, Sounding Rocket Program Of ce has conducted three campaigns (1990, 2004, 2013) at Reagan Test Center. SRPO and USAKA of cials have worked hard to reduce the cost of conducting NASA Sounding Rocket Missions at RTS. While conducting the last two campaigns, steps have been made that will reduce costs in the future. It is our goal to return to USAKA and RTS every three years in the future. Our science community has indicated they would like the opportunity to conduct more frequent studies at the equator. With development of the launch facility on Roi-Namur, we will be able to support missions here at comparable costs to other ranges we use. This will allow our program to conduct missions here on a much more frequent basis.
