3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 Samuel Manaole is retiring in December after working on Kwajalein for 42 years.Longtime Kwajalein resident departs island after 42 years Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorAfter living and working on Kwajalein for 42 years, Samuel Manaole is planning to retire at the end of the year. Manaole arrived at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll in 1971 and has worked at various departments, and for various companies, over the years. He began working in the supply department, moved over to merchandising, then on to automotive. After a few years, he went back to the merchandising department, and then nally to the shipping and receiving department where he has worked ever since. Manaole works for packing and crating and he mostly serves as a spotter for the stacker when cargo is off-loaded at Echo Pier. Manaole grew up in Hawaii. When he was 21 years old, he went to work in Washington State. He heard about a contracting job on Johnston Island and jumped at the opportunity. During his seven years at Johnston Island, Manaole learned about Kwajalein. At that time, ights from Kwajalein were routed through Johnston Island. When his contract there ended, he decided to give Kwajalein a try. After 42 years, he’s glad he did. Manaole said he likes living on Kwajalein for many reasons. He enjoys the quiet and safe community; he feels it is easy to make friends and talk to people on island. Back in his younger years, he used to play tennis and helped out at swim meets. He also really enjoyed when Kwajalein hosted the carnival. After living on Kwajalein for over four decades, Manaole has witnessed all the changes in island infrastructure, population and activities. He said he really enjoyed when the island had a larger population, over 5,000 at one point; there was always something going on. Positive changes include the demolition of the Paci c Bachelor Quarters and construction of the new bachelor quarters used today. Manaole used to be housed in the PBQ, where there were 10 residents to a room; he enjoys having his own room in the new BQs. Manaole will depart Kwajalein at the end of this year and retire in Las Vegas. He said the things he will miss most about Kwajalein are the friendships he’s made, the smiles from good people and all the fun he’s had over the years. Liz Mefford is the new hair stylist, joining Mistee Julian, at Surfside Salon. Together they will be a dynamic duo, providing lots of style and a little sass. Mefford is from Denver; her neighbor used to work on Kwajalein and forwarded her the job opening at the salon. Mefford is looking forward to meditating on the beach, diving and eating fresh coconut. “Thank you to everyone who has been so kind and welcoming! I’m really enjoying the island and community,” she said. “Cheers to adventure!” Photo by Chris Delisio


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry Army Under Secretary Joseph W. WestphalBy Ray Drefus USAKA Education Services SpecialistThe theme for this year’s observance is, “Hispanics: Serving and Leading our Nation with Pride and Honor.” The U.S. Army recognizes the achievements and contributions of Hispanic Americans. America’s diversity is a powerful source of strength, and Hispanic Americans have not hesitated to defend and show their allegiance to this nation in many heroic ways, but especially through their military service. You don’t have to look far to see incredible examples of Hispanic American leaders. Dr. Joseph W. Westphal, the 30th Undersecretary of the Army was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to the United States with his family at the age of 6. Dr. Westphal has stated, “Diversity is a natural element of Army culture … a critical element in our ability to sustain the Force by attracting Soldiers and Civilians from all Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15backgrounds.” What many of us may not be aware of is that Hispanic Americans have been an important part of our nation’s history beginning with the actions of Gen. Bernardo de Galvez during the American Revolution. Galvez’s successful campaign against the British at Pensacola, Fla., was a decisive factor in the outcome of the American Revolution. The Texas city of Galveston was named after him. Hispanic Americans have honorably defended our country in war and helped our nation thrive in peace. Approximately 1.2 million Hispanics are proud veterans of our armed forces. Approximately 115,000 Soldiers of Hispanic descent dedicate their lives nobly serving our Army and nation today. Since the Civil War, 44 Hispanic Americans have received the Medal of Honor for distinguishing themselves through their valorous actions in combat. Most recently, Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry, of Hispanic descent from Sante Fe, N.M., was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Obama during 2011 for his acts of gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his own life. On May 26, 2008, during his seventh deployment, Petry was a member of a team on a mission to capture a Taliban target in Paktia Province. Despite being wounded in both legs by gun re, Petry continued to ght and give orders. When a grenade landed between him and two other Soldiers, Petry grabbed it and attempted to throw it away from them when it exploded. His actions saved several Soldiers’ lives, but severed his right hand. He chose to re-enlist despite his wounds; Petry is currently stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., helping other Wounded Warriors. Hispanics have served courageously as members of our Armed Forces to defend those ideals at home and abroad. Hispanic Americans are an important thread in the fabric of our great nation and our proud Army. Army Strong.Serving and LeadingGen. Bernardo de Galvez


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 From Sheila GideonKwajalein parents, teens take on bullying with introduction of Kind Campaign Hourglass Reports “Finding Kind” is a movement and documentary that focuses on an ever-growing issue for teens: bullying. Kwajalein parents Sam and Melissa Engelhard are spearheading the “Finding Kind” movement here on Kwajalein, with a special parent and student screening of the lm being offered next week. Parents will screen the lm rst, at 7 p.m., Friday, in the MP Room at Kwajalein High School. The student screening will be at 4 p.m., Oct. 5, in the MP Room; the student screening is for girls ages 11-18 only.The Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in kindness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girlagainst-girl “crime.” Physical ghting, name-calling, threats, power struggles, competition, manipulation, secrets, rumors and ostracizing other girls all fall under the category of girl-against-girl “crime.”The challenge and goal of the “Finding Kind” movement is to choose to take a stand and help create change.After viewing the lm, attendees will have a discussion about how bullying has affected their lives, and how they can prevent or mitigate it in the future. Part of the program includes the use of the Kind Pledge, Kind Apology and Kind Card, which help to mend friendships. The Kind Pledge is where a girl writes down a pledge or action step they are going to take to bring an end to bullying. The Kind Apology gives girls the opportunity to write a personalized apology for something they have said or done to another female. The Kind Card gives girls the chance to write something kind to another female. In our busy everyday lives, we often forget to stop and compliment others. For additional information, contact the Engelhards at 51824, or see the Kind Campaign website at www. We need your submissions to keep this page full! Email to: From Flynn Gideon From Julie Savage
