2The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 THE KWAJALEIN HOURGLASS The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAG-KA. It is published Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff.

Nestor Sadler Command Sergeant Major .... Command Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden Public Affairs Of cer .............Michael Sakaio Managing Editor ......................Sheila Gideon Associate Editor .....................Jordan Vinson Media Services Intern.................Molly PremoUSAG-KA’s first command sergeant major assumes garrison responsibilities Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorCommand Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden became U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll’s rst command sergeant major in the history of the garrison last week. In a formal Assumption of Responsibilities ceremony at the base’s Island Memorial Chapel Feb. 14, Gooden formally accepted responsibility for the Kwajalein and Roi-Namur communities to which he will be beholden during his tenure. He is now the base’s highest-ranking enlisted leader. The late-morning ceremony hinged on the stoic passing of the noncommissioned of cers sword, a weapon adopted by the War Department in 1840 and taken into battle by American sergeants for more than 70 years. By grasping the sword from USAG-KA Commander Col. Nestor Sadler’s outstretched arms, Gooden performed the symbolic assumption of authority, control and responsibilities of the garrison, its operations and service members, as well as its civilian personnel and local workforce. “This is a special day for the Kwajalein team,” Sadler told the audience during his opening address following the sword ritual. “Today truly marks a day of rsts as we welcome Command Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden—the rst command sergeant major of the United States Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll— and his wife, Princess.” The chances of bringing aboard the garrison a Soldier of Gooden’s rank are scant, Sadler told the crowd. It is for this reason and many others that the communities of Kwajalein and Roi-Namur, as well as mission leaders and support staff with the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site, should consider themselves lucky. “Listen to the following statistics,” Salder said. “The Army has roughly 450,000 enlisted Soldiers in its ranks, of which about 1,100 are selected for command sergeant major. Of those, about 317 are assigned as a brigade-level command sergeant major. We are fortunate to have one of the 317 or so brigadelevel command sergeant majors in our ranks—one of our country’s nest soldiers. … I’m here to tell you that Command Sgt. Maj. Gooden is the right man, and it is my honor to welcome to the podium my new battle buddy, command sergeant major of the United States Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll, Command Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden.” Gooden said he was excited, honored and humbled by the opportunity to both serve as USAGKA’s rst command sergeant major, as well as Sadler’s con dant and advisor. He was also taken aback, he said, by the geniality and warmth extended to him and his wife by Kwajalein and RoiNamur residents. “As you know, my wife and I are USAG-KA Commander Col. Nestor Sadler prepares to offer the ceremonial sword to incoming USAG-KA Command Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden. Sgt. Maj. David Negron assisted in the passing of the sword.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 from the South, and we truly believe in southern hospitality,” he said. “We have experienced nothing but great and continuing hospitality from our new Kwaj family. And for that I’m truly grateful. I’m also grateful for having such a great opportunity—after 24 years in the military—to serve in such a beautiful and unique place. I look forward to the experiences as well as the challenges this [position] brings.” A native of Atlanta, Gooden enlisted in the Army in 1989 and has risen steadily through the branch’s ranks every since. He was selected, for instance, as one of only four JAG Corps sergeants major to serve as command sergeant major outside of his career management eld for the rst time in history. His most recent assignments include: Command Sergeant Major, Headquarters, Headquarters Battalion, 8th Army Battalion; Command Paralegal Sergeant Major, U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Fort Bragg, N.C.; and Command Paralegal Sergeant Major, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C. Gooden couldn’t elaborate on exactly what vision he’ll bring with him to USAGKA Command; as a relative newcomer to the atoll, he’ll still need time to feel out the nooks crannies of all the duties and operations he’ll be responsible for as command sergeant major. But he did take a moment to highlight a few of the principles he has lived by during his prior tenures at other bases—principles he will also call on to inform himself and others during his tour on USAG-KA. “I believe in spiritual, family, emotional, physical and social tness,” he told everyone in attendance at the chapel. “These are the key components that create and maintain a healthy culture to reside in. I believe in personal accountability of one’s actions and believe we are each other’s keepers, especially in such a small, close-knit community. We owe it to ourselves as well as our family members, both close and extended, to foster a safe, productive and nurturing environment. Instead of charging others, I will take this time to charge myself [and] my family to be valuable members of this great community and to do our best to always represent that great Kwaj spirit of tropic hospitality.” Emblematic of that hospitality was the welcome Gooden’s wife, Princess, received during the ceremony. In addition to receiving a bouquet of radiant yellow roses, she was honored with a traditional Marshallese decorative headpiece—it’s called a wut in Marshallese—which was placed onto her head by USAG-KA RMI Relations Specialist Michael Sakaio. “Once, again, thank you for graciously accepting Princess and [me] into your families,” Gooden concluded. “We look forward to what’s to come. Team Kwaj— strong and getting stronger.”Command Sgt. Maj. Reginald Gooden exits the Island Memorial Chapel at the end of the assumption ceremony. Princess Gooden, the incoming command sergeant major’s wife, receives a bouquet of roses and a traditional Marshallese wut. Republic of the Marshall Islands Finance Minister Dennis Momotaro takes the opportunity to personally meet and speak with Gooden and his wife after the ceremony.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 QUESTION: When will USAG-KA have residential internet? ANSWER: The Command has recently approved a plan to provide residential internet services to the community. The details of the plan are currently being worked out with the provider. The command expects to receive a nalized implementation plan within the next few weeks. QUESTION: Why are seasonal and holiday-speci c items available at AAFES on Kwajalein, but not on Roi-Namur? ANSWER: The Command recognizes that this is an important morale and quality of life issue and that the entire USAG-KA community should be afforded access to all the goods that are available. The Command has coordinated with the AAFES on-site manager to facilitate provision of holiday items on Roi. QUESTION: How can postal service be improved on Roi-Namur? ANSWER: KRS is currently in the process of hiring additional postal clerks. Postal clerks will continue to have priority Space A travel on commuter ights to and from Roi. KRS contacted the Military Postal Of ce in Honolulu and requested they improve the handling of packages coming to Kwajalein because packages often arrive at Kwajalein and Roi in very bad condition. QUESTION: Will the Coral Sands pavilion be repaired? Can families use the adult pool while the family pool is being repaired? ANSWER: The Command is planning to provide SRM funds for materials for repair of the Coral Sands within the Annual Work Plan this year and to have the Navy Seabees complete those repairs while they are on-island. Repairs to the family pool are expected to be complete in March. In the meantime, the Command approved use of the adult pool by the swim team for practices. QUESTION: Can Roi residents receive higher priority Space A travel to Kwajalein to conduct personal businesss or shop at Surfway? ANSWER: In accordance with SPI 1031 Rev. 006, employees returning to their island of residence have higher Space A priority on metro ights than employees who are leaving their island of residence. The Command has determined that no change in policy is warranted at this time. QUESTION: Will Community Bank can place an ATM on Roi with the capability to accept deposits? ANSWER: The Community Bank ATM on Roi cannot accept cash deposits. Accepting cash deposits would require bank employees and security detail to verify the amount deposited daily, and this action is not currently feasible. No change to the current operating procedure is possible at this time. QUESTION: May family members of Roi C-Badge residents use the laundry facilities in the Roi BQs? ANSWER: The laundry facilities inside the Roi-Namur fence line are intended for employees only. Family members may use the AAFES-run laundry facility at the DSC. There will be no change in current policy. QUESTION: Will the Command allow C-Badge residents to rent golf carts? ANSWER: Suf cient resources are not available at this time to extend usage of the available golf carts. Extending this privilege would strain the already limited resource and would have negative impacts on the intent of the program. There will be no change in current policy at this time. QUESTION: Why doesnÂ’t USAGKA provide passport services? ANSWER: Passport services are provided by the Department of State, not the Army. USAG-KA does not have a passport agent on staff. The Command is working with the U.S Embassy Majuro to periodically send a consular of cer to Kwajalein to provide passport and other services. The Embassy will be sending a consular of cer later this month. USAG-KA respond to Town Hall questions

Please come prepared with completed appropriate paperwork, including a valid passport photo and cash or money order if necessary. If you have other questions besides passport processing, such as social security applications, adoptions, voting, etc., please address those to the agent as well. Please contact the Host Nation Office at 52103 or 55325 if you have any questions.Passport Services and other U.S. Citizen Services DISPATCH FROM ROI From Jenna Ivey From Jordan Vinson From Robert Linstead From Robert Linstead From Jim Bennett

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 The reigning Atoll Cup champions from Kwajalein gather together Sunday afternoon to celebrate their 2014 victory with the beloved crystal cup. Preston Page lines up a putt. He played in the singles group during the tournament and helped secure the victory for the visiting Kwajalein golfing squad.Kwaj keeps the cup Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorSome of the nest golfers this side of the Hawaiian Islands took to the RoiNamur golf course last weekend to battle for the annual Atoll Cup. While the Roi Rats put up a erce defense on their home turf, the team from Kwajalein came away with the overall tournament win—and the right to hold onto the beloved crystal Atoll Cup for another year. A savage easterly wind—up to more than 22 knots by some estimates— heckled the golfers during much of the tournament. Shots into the wind came up short. Drives against it sailed on. “This wind is brutal,” said Gloria Cassiday, a player on the Kwajalein team, before taking a sip of lemonade and plodding onward into the wind. Having teamed with Geary Shotts, she helped defeat Roi golfers, Deb Crawford and Lynda Reynolds, in the last match of the scramble division. In addition to the eight teams of two playing in the scramble group, there was also a better ball division and a singles division. The diversity in game types allowed each golfer interested in the tournament the option to play in the game in which he or she was strongest. For most golfers, the better ball game type was the group they settled on. Five teams of two from both the Roi team and the Kwaj team faced off against one another in this group. But while the Roi squad did a ne job in the scramble division, winning two of the four matches, their performance in the better ball division was a different story. The duo of Brian Masumoto and Johnny Jennop was the only team in this group able to get on the board—and it was only half a point that they earned, having tied Ronald Boerger and Larry Cavendar. Roi played a bit better in the singles division. Out of three total matches, the Kwajalein team won only two. Still, the one point the Roi golfers gained in this last division of play moved the team up to a total of only 3.5—not quite enough to top the Kwajalein squad’s 8.5 total points. Golfers can point to a number of factors to explain away their performances. The wind certainly had

Perhaps the golfers on the Roi-Namur team had too many lemonades. Or maybe lady luck simply sided with the golfers that hang their hats on Kwajalein. Lenny Fugatt, for instance chipped his ball into the cup from 20 yards away on Hole 6 and then turned around and did the exact same thing on Hole 7. He then repeated the feat again a bit later, earning himself ve consecutive birdies. The players in his group were more-or-less shocked. Fugatt, however, laughed it off, calling it a uke. “I have no idea how this is happening,” Fugatt said laughing. “It’s pure luck.” Each golfer played 18 holes, and after nishing their rounds they came together at the Roi-Namur Golf Shack, where they cooled down with some refreshments and talked about how they did. Yeah, they were keeping track of points, and only one team went away the winner. But it was evident in the hours after the last team came in from the links that everyone was just glad to be able to hang out with their buddies and play a game that they love.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 AFRICANAMERICANHISTORYMONTH Throughout America’s history, from the Battle of Lexington to the Battle of Fallujah, African American Soldiers have honorably answered the call of duty, serving with great valor and distinction in America’s armed forces. During February, the Army celebrates and pays tribute to African American Soldiers and recognizes the important contributions they have made in past wars and are continuing to make today in overseas operations. Of the seven African Americans whose indomitable valor earned them the Medal of Honor, two are featured below. 1st Lt. John Fox, Cannon Company, 366th Infantry Regiment, 92nd Infantry Division. Area of action: the vicinity of Sommocolonia, Italy. During the weeks preceding Dec. 26, 1944, Fox served with the 598th Field Artillery Battalion as a forward observer. On Christmas night, enemy soldiers gradually in ltrated the town of Sommocolonia in civilian clothes, and by 4 a.m. Dec. 26, uniformed German units began issuing heavy artillery barrages. Being greatly outnumbered, most of the U.S. Infantry forces were forced to withdraw from the town. But Fox and some other members of his observer party voluntarily remained on the second oor of a house to direct defensive artillery re. At 8 a.m. the lieutenant reported that the Germans were in the streets and attacking in strength, and he called for defensive artillery re to slow the enemy advance. As the Germans pressed in closer the area that Fox occupied, he ordered adjustments to artillery trajectories to take them out. After he was warned that the next adjustment would bring U.S. shells directly onto his position, he insisted that the nal adjustment be made in order to eliminate the advancing German soldiers—as well as himself. After a U.S. counterattack retook the area from the Germans, Fox’s body was found with the bodies of approximately 100 German soldiers. Fox’s gallant and courageous actions, at the supreme sacri ce of his own life, signi cantly delayed the enemy advance until other infantry and artillery units could reorganize to repel the attack. His extraordinary valorous actions were in keeping with the most cherished traditions of military service, and re ect the utmost credit on him, his unit and the United States Army. 1st Lt. Charles Thomas. Area of action: the vicinity of Climbach, France. On Dec. 14, 1944, Thomas was riding in the lead vehicle of a taskforce organized to storm and capture the village of Climbach, France when his armored scout car came under intense enemy artillery, self-propelled gun re and small arms re. Although wounded by the rst barrage of re, Thomas signaled the other vehicles in the column to halt and then helped the crew in his wrecked car escape danger. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds in his chest, legs and left arm, but he kept going. Pushing through the intense pain he must have been feeling, he directed the placement of two antitank guns to repel the enemy gun re. Realizing he could no longer continue commanding the platoon, he called to the platoon commander and oriented him to the enemy gun positions. Only after he was certain that his junior of cer was in full control of the situation did he allow himself to be evacuated to safety. Thomas’ unassailable heroism was an inspiration to his men on that day and exemplify the highest traditions of the armed forces. 1st Lt. John Fox 1st Lt. Charles Thomas
