Marshallese can claim residency wherever they decide to settle in the Marshall Islands, but their home island, which is determined by where their parents have land rights, never changes. Living away from the home island does not relieve them of obligations to their home island. Regardless of where they live, Marshallese are expected to offer financial or other support for projects and activities on their home island, such as construction projects, religious, youth and sporting events.Thumbs Up!... to all the Kwajalein soccer players who joined in on the game against the HMS Daring crew. It was a great effort by both teams! ... to all the local residents who gave up personal time to tour HMS Daring crew around island, taking them diving and out on boats during their downtime here. Way to be so hospitable and welcoming to our visitors! ... to the Post Of ce personnel for sorting all the mail on Tuesday, despite the ATI being delayed. We appreciate being able to get our mail packages in a timely manner!SMDC changes commandBy Jason B. Cutshaw SMDC/ARSTRAT REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -Lt. Gen. David L. Mann assumed command of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command and the Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense from Lt. Gen. Richard P. Formica during a ceremony conducted in the Von Braun III auditorium Aug. 12. Mann recently served as the commanding general of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox, Ky., from February 2011 to July 2013, where he was responsible for more than 13,000 Soldiers and civilians assigned throughout the United States, Europe and the Far East with the primary mission of meeting the Army’s recruiting goals. U.S. Air Force Gen. C. Robert Kehler, commanding general, U.S. Strategic Command, presided over the ceremony. “It is a privilege for me to be of ciating at a Change of Command that involves the world’s best Army,” Kehler said. “I am attered to preside over a ceremony that recognizes, not just the accomplishments of two senior leaders, but really the accomplishments of a whole lot of Soldiers and civilians.” “It’s been a pleasure for me to work with SMDC. It’s a pleasure for me to work with these great Soldiers and wonderful civilians who make up this great command,” he added. Kehler spoke of the leadership Formica has provided USASMDC/ ARSTRAT during his command and thanked him for his service to his troops and to his country. “What a great day it is for the Formica family,” Kehler said. “Dick, thanks for every single thing you have done for your country, for the Army and for the joint team. You have been spectacular.” “On behalf of all the men and women of the United States Strategic Command, on behalf of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines of the entire joint force, I say thanks, Dick, for what you’ve done,” he added. “Thanks to you from the men and women who work for you and serve us so ably and so well.” Kehler then welcomed Mann to the command and wished him well as he begins the next chapter in his


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013Col. Sadler focused on values during tenure as USAKA commanderU.S. Department of State In recognition of the importance of climate change to Paci c Island Nations, 12 women climate leaders from across the Paci c region will visit Washington, D.C.; Pensacola, Fla.; and Honolulu to meet with policymakers, scientists, and innovators to share their experiences and to learn about U.S. efforts to combat climate change. This exchange advances the Rarotonga Partnership for the Advancement of Paci c Island Women and broader U.S. efforts to support the critical role of women around the world in combating climate change. The group will participate in a roundtable discussion with U.S. government leaders, non-governmental organizations, a panel with World Bank experts on climate change and receive training in social media at George Washington University. The participants will also engage in a series of meetings and site visits to learn more about topics related to climate change, ranging from disaster risk management and emergency operations to environmental conservation and innovative renewable energy technologies. Representing the Cook Islands, Fiji, Micronesia, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, these climate leaders will share practical skills and ideas learned with counterparts upon returning home.U.S. sponsored women’s program on climate changeBy Sheila Gideon Managing Editor While Col. Nestor Sadler has only held the title of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander for less than three weeks, he sat down with Kwajalein Hourglass staff to discuss island life, his personal command philosophy and future plans for USAKA. Sadler lives on Kwajalein with his wife, Monica. Q: How do you and Monica like Kwajalein? A: Sadler was able to browse through the Kwajalein Hourglass to get an idea of what island life would be like upon arrival. Talking to colleagues about his future home, he said the one thing he heard most was that the people on island – Army personnel, Department of Defense civilians and contractors – were like one big family. That point has been upheld as the truth. Sadler said it’s always an honor to be selected to command, regardless of where the assignment is. While Kwajalein is indeed remote and unique, he looks forward to the challenge it proposes. Sadler and Monica have only been on island three weeks, but they are looking forward to the experience. “So far, we’ve enjoyed every aspect of it,” he said. He is a self-proclaimed athlete and outdoors person, and has signed up to play in the adult soccer league this year.Q: What is your No. 1 goal during your tenure as USAKA Commander?A: Sadler said USAKA already has a great command climate. He plans to continue to emphasize the values already in place: teamwork, family and commitment to the mission. “Across the board, [those values] resonate with all the personnel here on the island. I want to continue to maintain that, and continue to foster a command climate where everyone feels valued.” Q: Can you speak to the upcoming transition to Installation Management Command? What should the community expect, and what plans do you have to make the transition as smooth as possible? A: “Come 01 October, things aren’t going to change drastically,” assured Sadler. There will be an uncasing ceremony in early October, which will serve as a symbolic change in the command headquarters. IMCOM and U.S. Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command staff will visit for that ceremony. “Although the headquarters and ags are changing, the people here on Kwajalein, the Kwaj Family, will remain the same.” Sadler has spoken with the new SMDC/ARSTRAT Commander, Lt. Gen. David Mann, and the IMCOM-Paci c Regional Director, Debra Zedalis, regarding the upcoming transition. Everyone at USAKA, Reagan Test Site, IMCOM and SMDC are committed to the mission. The transition will be a deliberate, slow process that will lead to a well-thought-out transition. “Some things the command wasn’t able to focus on previously, IMCOM will.” IMCOM is focused primarily on base operations. Issues that weren’t able to be addressed suf ciently will now get the emphasis they need. This will include housing, community and family services, and island infrastructure. Q: What kind of communication strategy do you plan to have with the community? A: Sadler believes in open and transparent communication. He will utilize town hall meetings, the Hourglass and AFN Roller to keep the lines of communication open with the community. He plans to make himself visible within the community to promote a healthy dialogue. It’s important to him to not only get his message out to residents, but to also listen to what they have to say. He is planning his rst town hall sometime in October. Check the Hourglass and AFN Roller for speci c dates and times. Q: Do you have a command philosophy? A: Sadler’s theme and message is “values.” He believes not only in personal values, but also in organizational values, some of which were already present when he arrived at USAKA. The three most important values to Sadler include family, teamwork and transparency. “If we work on those three pillars for the command, I think we’ll continue to be successful.”

Nestor Sadler, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander, made his rst of cial visit to Roi-Namur since taking command earlier in the month. The visit included stops and brie ngs at the major infrastructure and facilities, to include the fuel pier, dock security checkpoint, Third Island store, sewage plant, power plant and water treatment plant. Following lunch at the Caf Roi, Sadler visited ALTAIR, TRADEX, MMW and ALCOR, where he received briefings on the radar systems. Following this, Sadler was provided with a historical tour of some of the battle sites from World War II. Later that afternoon, Sadler visited Enniburr Island where he was greeted by Julius Lejjena, Kwajalein Atoll Local Government representative, Pastor Koniske of the Assembly of God Church and traditional leaders. They were also welcomed by members of the community with songs and ower leis. A tour of the island infrastructure ensued, which included the school, community center, land ll, water cistern, medical clinic and churches. On Monday, Sadler made his rst of cial visit to Ebeye and Carlos Islands where he met members of the elected national and local leadership, their staff and representatives of the government agencies operating in Kwajalein Atoll on Ebeye. The engagement included separate meetings with Senator/ Iroij Michael Kabua, Mayor Johnny Lemari, KALGOV staff, selected assistance secretaries of ministries on Ebeye and other commercial department heads. His tour ended with an infrastructure tour of Ebeye, and a trip to Carlos Island. USAKA Commander Col. Nestor Sadler, left, and RMI Liaison Lanny Kabua, right, are greeted by local women during a visit to Enniburr Island Aug. 14. The Summer Fun Reading Program, “Camp Read S’more,” wrapped up on Wednesday morning. Campers gathered at the Grace Sherwood Library to turn in their reading logs that documented all the pages, chapters and entire books they read over the past nine weeks. Entertainment Coordinator Midori Hobbs read a book to the kids and then set up a fun activity, pictured above. Lastly, Hobbs announced who the biggest bookworms were, giving a certificate and goodie bag to each child who read the most pages, most books and most chapter books. Jason Merrymon, pictured right, read 4,652 pages; Ava Moore, pictured right, read 27 books; and Abigail Whatcott read 14 large chapter books. In total, there were 44 participants in the Summer Reading Program and collectively they read 22,059 pages. Photos by Eva SeelyeSummer Reading Program bookworms recognized

HMS Daring Commander Angus Essenhigh has MDA Director of Test Maj. Gen. Heidi Brown sign the shipÂ’s visitor log.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorBritish Royal Navy ship, HMS Daring arrived at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll on Aug. 17 for a brief visit. The Daring is not only the rst Royal Navy ship to circumnavigate the world, but it is also the rst time a Royal Navy ship has visited the Republic of the Marshall Islands. While at USAKA, the shipÂ’s crew offered an open house to island residents on Sunday. A group of distinguished visitors, including representatives from USAKA, Reagan Test Site, Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. Army, were given a private tour by DaringÂ’s Commander, Angus Essenhigh, on Aug. 17. Ship visitors were shown the bridge, helicopter hanger, control room and the various weaponry aboard. Residents were even allowed to handle some of the unloaded weapons under supervision by the shipÂ’s crew. The DaringÂ’s main attraction is the 5-ton radar that stands 38 meters above the water line. The shipÂ’s size can be attributed to this radar, as its dimensions were determined based on the need to support it. The crew took in Kwajalein sights and even participated in a friendly soccer match with Kwajalein residents on Sunday. Island residents hosted diving trips, boating opportunities and even took the commander wakeboarding. The crew was able to enjoy a cookout at Camp Hamilton, and even joined in on some karaoke at the Ocean View Club Sunday night. The Daring left its home port of Portsmouth on May 27 to embark on a nine-month deployment that when concluded, will result in a circumnavigation of the globe.

You are going to lead them in a period of unprecedented change and uncertainty in our world.” After Kehler spoke, Formica talked about not only the command he is leaving, but about the SMDC family he will miss. “Let me thank each and every one of you for attending today,” Formica said. “Gen. Kehler, we thank you for your leadership and your service. I have personally grown as a result of your leadership and your example. I am honored to have served with you.“To the many activities that support our Soldiers, our Sailors, our Airmen, our Marines, our civilians, our wounded warriors, our veterans and their families, thank you for your tremendous support,” he continued. “Diane and I are so proud to have served on your team,” Formica added. “My nal charge to you is to Lt.

Public Works shops prepare Kwajalein schools for 2013-2014 academic yearBy Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Kwajalein Schools began the 2013-2014 academic year on Thursday. Public Works shops stayed busy over the summer with their annual maintenance of Kwajalein Schools. While Public Works ful lls maintenance needs every summer, this year they went above and beyond the tasks they normally accomplish. At the end of July, they began projects to get the schools ready for incoming students and faculty on their rst day back. Students and faculty should have noticed an enhancement in appearance to the buildings and grounds, as well as improved air conditioning. Maintenance was done at four major areas: high school, elementary school, Child Development Center, and the Namo Weto Youth Center. Major projects included installing a new fence around a tree and separating the swings area at the CDC, relocating the air conditioning units from the Youth Center roof to the ground, and continuing a three-year-long project to remove asbestos tile from the high school. The Paint Shop was busier than usual. They provided “corrosion control” by painting all the metal at the playground, as well as interior and exterior walls at all four facilities. Other maintenance included repairing sinks and cabinets in classrooms, replacing locks and doorknobs, power washing walkways, repairing A/C units, and removing grass and weeds from the sand areas at the playgrounds. be relentlessly focused on providing and integrating space and missile defense capabilities. We should never forget that the most critical space and missile defense capabilities our nation has are the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and civilians who develop, deploy and operate those technologies.” Formica’s of cial retirement ceremony was held at Fort Myer, Va., July 19. In a separate ceremony before the change of command, Mann was promoted from major general to lieutenant general by Gen. Robert W. Cone, commanding general, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. Mann thanked everyone for their kind words and said he looks forward to working with Soldiers, civilians and family members of the SMDC community. “It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this team,” Mann said. “When you look at the nature of threats facing us, these commands play an important role in keeping us safe. We feel extremely humbled to be on the team to ensure that the hard-fought freedoms and liberties that we enjoy today are maintained, not only for our kids and our grandkids, but for many generations to come.” “May God bless you and thank you for being here,” he added.

Fill your dryer, but donÂ’t pack it too tightly. Clean the lint screen after each load. Keep your dryerÂ’s outside exhaust pipe clean. Use your dryerÂ’s automatic dry cycle rather than a timed cycle. Separate loads into heavy and light items, since lightweight items take less drying time than heavy ones.
