2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 13, 2013 “Junmeto” is a title bestowed upon the most experienced of Marshallese traditional navigators. When large numbers of people migrated, the Iroij or Chief would select the navigator to command the lead canoe of the fleet. Such a navigator would be versed in all aspects of traditional navigation. From beginning to end of the voyage, the “Junmeto’s” word was law on his canoe and the fleet.Thumbs Up!... to Surfway for removing the Matson containers from the Lagoon Road neighborhood. It has greatly improved the look of the area. Thank you! ... to the nice woman who picked up my bicycle after it had fallen over at the Post Of ce on a windy day. You saved my purse and my camera! Thank you!

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 13, 2013See PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP, page 6Pacific Partnership brings humanitarian assistance to Ebeye, Enniburr, CarlosArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorPaci c Partnership is the largest humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness exercise in the Indo-Asian Paci c region. It is a multi-faceted mission that focuses on building capacity through medical, dental, veterinarian and disaster response training. This year’s mission consists of regional partners, including Australia, Canada, Colombia, France, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and United States, that work together to improve maritime security, conduct humanitarian assistance, and strengthen disaster response preparedness. Non-Governmental Organizations are a critical component to Paci c Partnership and include Project Hope, World Vets, Veterinarians Without Borders, University of California San Diego, University of Hawaii and Latter-Day Saints. The Republic of the Marshall Islands is one of six countries on PP13’s mission. The PP13 team arrived at Ebeye on Sunday aboard the USS Pearl Harbor They conducted a health fair and community outreach programs on Ebeye, Enniburr and Carlos islands this week. PP13 is a four-month long mission that began in Samoa and then moved on to Tonga. After the RMI, the USS Pearl Harbor will head to the countries of Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. While the whole Paci c Partnership mission lasts several months, the planning goes on for much longer. A few years out, U.S. Embassy of cials will get together with host nation leadership and try to articulate a package that includes requirements and desires. “[The embassy will] determine which countries would be good to go to on a speci c Paci c Partnership,” PP13 Mission Commander U.S. Navy Capt. Wallace Lovely explained. “That’s how we got here (in the RMI).” U.S. Navy Lt. Bruce Hansen visited all six countries included in PP13 to conduct a pre-deployment site survey in late 2012 to identify the needs and issues of each country. “What the countries’ leadership wants is to stand on their own. It is so important that we respect that,” said Lovely. PP13’s intention is not to come in and take over; it is collaboration. “What we’re trying to do here is build capacity with [each country’s] ministry of health and the hospital,” Hansen explained. “We’re also trying to build capacity with some small engineering projects. Thirdly, we’re trying to build capacity in their disaster response. We’re also doing things in the eld of public health, like mosquito and disease control. The very last thing we’re doing is kind of icing on the cake; that’s basically these community relations donations.” Donations included bottled water, clothing, soap, mouthwash, bandages and feminine hygiene products. “These (donations) are coming from the American people. They’re donated to the U.S. Navy’s Project Hand Clasp. These items were brought to the ship based on the needs here on Ebeye, [Enniburr and Carlos].” Part of the capacity building includes education. “What we’re doing more this mission than ever before is we’re providing the knowledge,” said Lovely. This was offered through the various health fairs conducted in the RMI that included medical, dental and optometry screenings. This mission is about humanitarian assistance, but it’s also about friendship and collaboration. “The Marshallese have met us 100 percent of the way with all of that we’ve asked for,” Hansen commented. “They’re really putting their best foot forward. We appreciate that. That’s what it’s all about. Building capacity: they see we’re bringing a lot of stuff to the table, so they’re bringing things to the table. So, it’s not just a one-way thing.” “I would like to thank the host nation of ce at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll (Maj. Matt Sova, Bill White, Mike Sakaio) for giving us so much assistance as well,” Hansen continued. “If USAKA wasn’t here, we would be lost. These guys have bent over backwards for us.” “USAKA is very pleased to be part of the Paci c Partnership 2013 mission and is grateful for the full support we have received from our host nation partners,” said Sova. “What I am most proud of is the true team effort we received from the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government, Kwajalein Atoll Joint Utilities Resources, traditional and community leadership. Without their direct support the mission would not have been as successful.” A closing ceremony was held at the Ebeye Community Center on Wednesday. Hansen introduced RMI dignitaries, who took a seat at the front of the room. This included Leroij Seagull Kabua-James, acting Ebeye Mayor George Luther, Ministry of Health Director Tommy Milne, and Rebel John from the Community Center.Lovely said a few words, describing how impressed he was with everyone’s efforts as the Paci c Partnership 2013 mission came to a close on Ebeye. “The multi-national partners that we brought from the USS Pearl Harbor are pretty good at what they do.” All they ask for in return, he said, is friendship. “This mission is about partnership. This mission is about caring. This mission is about friendship.”“Public health has been a focus,” Lovely continued. The PP13 team screened over 500 adults in Majuro and Ebeye. They were able to detect over 100 new cases of high blood pressure, 50 new cases of diabetes and three new cases of leprosy. These patients were given the information necessary to maintain and treat their diseases. U.S. Ambassador to the RMI Thomas Armbruster then commented on the basketball donations from former NBA Coach Tom Newell. He reminded the children of Ebeye to “eat right to play right.” Armbruster and Lovely ended their presentation by offering gifts of thanks to Kabua, Milne, Luther and John. Luther then made a presentation in Marshallese, while Milne translated into English. He thanked the RMI traditional leaders, and the PP13 team, speci cally Lovely, Hansen, Armbruster and the USAKA team. He thanked everyone for all their efforts and donations. Luther’s remarks ended with gift presentations made to Lovely, Armbruster and his wife Kathy, and Karen Grissette, public diplomacy of cer with the U.S. Paci c Command.

He arrived Tuesday morning and departed Wednesday evening. While it was a short visit, he was able to travel to Enniburr, Carlos and Ebeye islands to participate in community relation donations with the PP13 team. Armbruster was joined by his wife, Kathy. On Tuesday, Armbruster travelled to Enniburr where he helped hand out donations of clothing, soap, bandages and mouthwash to the small island population. He was also able to observe the ongoing U.S. Navy Seabees engineering projects on island. On Wednesday, Armbruster travelled to Carlos Island, where again he helped to hand out donations and spoke with the residents. “Yokwe. It’s really a pleasure to be here,” Armbruster said. He spoke about how he just helped dedicate a basketball court in Majuro to Staff Sgt. Solomon Sam, who was killed in Iraq while serving in the United States military. “There are some new educational opportunities as well,” he said. The Department of Energy now offers a scholarship to anyone interested in studying science. There are also scholarships for the Coast Guard and merchant marines. He urged anyone interested to come see him at the embassy. “We know a lot of these talented young (RMI) people have great futures and they’re going to come back and contribute here.” Later that morning, Armbruster travelled to Ebeye for the Paci c Partnership closing ceremony at the Community Center. He and his wife danced with the children of Ebeye along to the upbeat music of the U.S. Navy’s Paci c Fleet Band. He then said a few words to the community. “I can’t be in this hall without thinking of Coach Tom Newell, who is providing the basketballs, the glow in the dark balls, the jerseys, the backboards.” Half of the equipment was given to the Basketball Coaches Association in Majuro and the other half was given to Rebel John at the Ebeye Community Center. He asked the kids U.S. Ambassador to the RMI Thomas Armbruster is greeted by the Enniburr Women’s Club.

You guys look great.” Armbruster asked Deputy Mission Commander New Zealand Capt. Anthony Millar to join him. Together, they taught all the children to administer a proper military salute. Armbruster thanked the entire PP13 team, with a special thank you to the U.S. Navy Paci c Fleet band. He ended his presentation by offering a special thank you gift to the RMI dignitaries present.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 13, 2013 PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP, from page 3 EbeyeThe Paci c Partnership 2013 mission on Ebeye began on Sunday with the off-loading of supplies. This included a 30,000 gallon a day reverse osmosis water making unit from Majuro. Other supplies were the community outreach donations that included bottled water, clothing, soap, mouthwash, sunglasses and feminine hygiene products; the items were donated to the U.S. Navy’s Project Hand Clasp. The remaining supplies were to support the health fair that took place Monday through Wednesday. The health fair consisted of medical, dental and optometry screenings. In the medical area, patients were screened for body mass index, tuberculosis, blood pressure, diabetes and Hansen’s Disease. There was also a separate section for education regarding AIDS, alcohol awareness, smoking, healthy diet, diabetes, blood pressure and preventative medicine. The dental screenings included exams, education on sugary diets and free toothbrushes. At the optometry screenings, PP13 team members conducted patient eye exams and then determined the prescription glasses best suited for their needs. At the Ebeye Primary School, the PP13 veterinary team was hard at work spay and neutering island cats and dogs. They educated the owners on basic care and nutrition. Procedures were as quick as 5-15 minutes. Every animal received an exam and medication for internal parasites. If they had time, they also treated for ticks. Enniburr(The following portion was contributed by Shawn Brady, Media Specialist) Paci c Partnership continued its health care promotion when they visited Enniburr Island on Tuesday. The group was welcomed with singing by the Enniburr Women’s Club. They were also greeted by Julius Lejjner, RMI liaison for Enniburr. The team received a tour of the island and greeted the residents that live there. The group was given the opportunity to interact with some of the U.S. Navy Seabees and Army Soldiers who were hard at work on two major projects. The Seabees engineering project involved the repairing of a 60,000-gallon cistern which will be used to hold fresh, clean drinking water for the Enniburr residents. The large tanks were drained, sanded, re-sealed, cleaned and will eventually be painted. After the repairs, residents will be able to access a larger amount of clean, useable water on a day-to-day basis. The other engineering project included repairs to the basketball court to increase safety for players. Exposed rebar was cut and sanded down, and numerous holes and cracks were lled and sealed with concrete. Lovely and Armbruster presented the donated items after a prayer was said by Chaplain (Lt.) Jason Constantine. Lovely spoke about the positive relationship that PP13 intends to build with the people of Enniburr. Armbruster also thanked the residents and he and Lovely then presented donations that included soap, toothbrushes, bandages and clothing.CarlosThe PP13 team, along with USAKA representatives, travelled to Carlos Island on Wednesday morning. They brie y toured the island and then met with island residents at the school to hand out donations. Constantine began with a prayer. “Thank you for this village. Thank you for the opportunity that we have for fellowship and to visit our brothers and sisters from overseas.” Lovely then said a few words to the crowd. “Yokwe. What you have here today is a gift from many nations. … We all come together to bring goodness.” What’s really important, he said, are that the donations will help them thrive and bene t. “Most important, though, is learning and making friends. When we leave here, we want to know that we have left friends.” Keinta Anitak, Carlos representative, joined Lovely at the front of the group and was presented a Paci c Partnership hat and coin. “This represents our friendship. This represents our mission,” Lovely said. Lovely nished by explaining that the donated items couldn’t be delivered here without the help of someone like Ambassador Armbruster, who cares with such enthusiasm about the Marshallese people. Armbruster said a few words to the community and then he and Lovely presented a symbolic offering of the donated items to Anitak. The rest of the items will be distributed among the community. Carlos residents then treated the visiting group to some freshly prepared coconuts, breadfruit and handicrafts.

This Safely Speaking reviews one of the new the pictograms you’ll start to see on workplace chemicals. The following materials will have this pictogram:Acute Toxicity (fatal or toxic)Toxic means poison. Acute toxicity refers to those adverse effects occurring following oral or dermal administration of a single dose of a substance, or multiple doses given within 24 hours, or an inhalation exposure of four hours. The skull and crossbones symbol cover solids, liquids and gases. Routes of uptake are eating or drinking (ingestion), breathing (inhalation), through your skin (adsorption). When the skull and crossbones symbol is used along with the keyword, “danger,” it means the material is capable of being fatal. Always read the SDS to determine the routes of uptake, and what PPE is necessary when using these materials. Always wash your hands and face before eating, drinking, or any other activity where hand to mouth contact is made (smoking or applying makeup.)
