It took a lot of effort by many different people and everyone did an excellent job. I want to thank Thompson Tarwoj, night supervisor, for overseeing league play. Thanks to the Kwajalein Sports Association for providing of cials and scorekeepers. They did a great job maintaining the integrity of the league and making play safe and fun for everyone. A special thanks goes to the Hobby Shop for providing coconut trophies for league winners. Finally, basketball wouldn’t have been complete without the assistance of all of our coaches and managers. Your interest, efforts and support was greatly appreciated. The success of this year’s season was all due to the efforts of everyone involved. Congratulations to BreakFast, USAG-KA and Icy Hot, who were this year’s champions. — Kaylee West Recreation Coordinator Lolita “Lee” Silva Allas died Feb. 3 at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu. While on Kwajalein, Lee worked as a Department of Defense secretary, and was a well-remembered member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and many sports teams throughout the years. Additionally, many residents were the lucky recipients of Lee’s culinary talents. Island youth bene tted from her hours of volunteer service as a CCD teacher and coach. Because of her years of generous service to the congregation, the Blessed Sacrament Chapel is naming their annual scholarship in Lee’s honor. Born in Honolulu, Lee is survived by her husband Paul, sons Paul Jr., Kevin and Keith; brothers Romeo, Dennis, Leslie, Alvin, Clark and Barry Silva; sisters Miriam Maio, Yolanda Dunn, and Natalie and Edwina Silva, as well as four grandchildren. Longtime Kwajalein resident remembered Lee Allas and her husband, Paul, were longtime residents of Kwajalein. The Allas’ PCS’d to Hawaii in December.

Logan nished in 11th place on the reality singing competition show “The Voice” last season. He also just won New England Music Awards “Performer of the Year” and the 2014 Boston Nightlife Awards “Toast of the Town.” Logan, along with bass player Nate Comp and drummer Paul Costley, performed at the Roi Outrigger March 21, at the Kwajalein Yacht Club March 22 and at the Vet’s Hall on Sunday. Their music was mostly a mix of cover songs adapted to their personal style, but they also played a few original tunes. They catered their music to each audience and even played two completely different sets for the Yacht Club and Vet’s Hall, knowing some people would attend both shows. Crowd participation was also a focus. At the Yacht Club, they had the crowd whistling along to “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” singing the chorus to “Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” and dancing to several tunes. They even invited a few local musicians to perform with them on Roi and at the Vet’s Hall, including Melody and Tony Cherry, Mandie Morris, Shelley Easter Photo by Sheila GideonThe Josh Logan Trio performs at the Kwajalein Yacht Club March 22.and Danny Barthle. The trio took it a step further by sharing a 2.5-hour personal jam session with resident musicians Ken Winchester and Ric Fullerton. “It’s kind of what we do back home,” Logan said. “We host open mic jams … and have people jump up and play with us. We have to get the locals involved and see what they can do.” Logan sang several songs he performed during “The Voice” competition, including his audition song “Too Close” and even the last one he sang in the show’s knockout round, “Man in the Mirror.” According to the trio, the Vet’s Hall won the award for rowdiest show. “The vibe … was insane,” Logan said. “[The] favorite setting for me I’d have to say was the Yacht Club,” commented Costley. He loved the atmosphere and said, “You couldn’t ask for a better place to play.” “We should do more shows at the Yacht Club,” Logan said jokingly, but also seriously. The musicians hope to return one day to play another show. Next time they would bring their full ve-piece band, and could even provide a 2-for-1 deal by bringing Logan’s girlfriend Olivia Henken, a country singer who was also a contestant on season ve of “The Voice.” During their visit, the trio got to experience a bit of what the islands have to offer. On Roi, they toured the historical sites and cruised through the jungle. They didn’t see a single rat, besides the one that was skinned and pinned to the wall in the Outrigger. “We weren’t fooled,” Logan clari ed. They watched the sunset from the Gabby Shack deck and even saw the elusive green ash. “It was probably See JOSH LOGAN TRIO, page 8

Adrienne Chavis helps her son Chase get his colorful kite flying.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The trade winds were whipping on Sunday afternoon at Emon Beach, where more than a dozen kites could be seen soaring through the sky. Community Activities sponsored the annual Kite Day, offering island residents the opportunity to bring their own or homemade kites to the beach, or to play with the shark kites courtesy of CA. Prizes were awarded to several participants. Mark Donoghue had the highest ying kite. Jim Hockenberger and Judith Shimamoto tied for the best homemade kites. The Botes family’s mermaid kite was voted prettiest. The sky was lled with a variety of shapes, colors and ribbons twirling in the wind. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students Alison Tomas and Michael Sykes would have impressed Math Teacher Carol Hockenberger with their geometrically friendly kites. Also ying through the sky were pigs, helicopters, sharks, birds and dragons. The wind carried some so high that one parent was heard commenting to their child, “I hope the United plane doesn’t hit it!” Judith Shimamoto tied for the best homemade kite at this year’s Kite Day event.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 29, 2014 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 29, 2014 Brig. Gen. Elizabeth P. Hoisington, director of the Women’s Army Corps, was one of the first females to reach the rank of brigadier general. WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH 20 14CHARACTER COURAGECOMMITTMENT By Jordan Vinson Associate EditorMarch is Women’s History Month. It’s a time to celebrate the contributions and honor the sacri ces and accomplishments of the scores of women who have served and strengthened the United States Army and greater U.S. military forces throughout America’s history. Aiding the country’s defenses since 1775, women have valiantly served the United States throughout times of peace and war, and without these patriots, the exemplary success of America on all fronts—economically, politically, militarily—would not be possible.Women working with the Army traditionally nursed the ill and Design by Jordan Vinsonwounded, laundered and mended clothing and cooked for the troops in camp on campaign—services that did not exist among the uniformed personnel within the Army until the 20th century. But in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, some served as scouts and spies, risking their lives to provide valuable intelligence on enemy combatant locations and troop movements on the battle eld. Some, such as Harriet Tubman, the famed Underground Railroad conductor, led brazen incursions along river channels into the Deep South to get Union commanders an eye on Confederate movements and to also free and recruit slaves to the Union armies. Others like Cathay Williams, a former slave, disguised themselves as men in order to formally enlist in the Army, serving alongside male soldiers in the infantry. When roughly 16 percent of America’s male workforce shipped off to battle during World War I, women stepped in to ramp up wartime manufacturing and clerical efforts. More than 35,000 women actively served in the military during the con ict, many enduring the harsh reality of life in bunkers and makeshift tents and the horror of sustained artillery barrages and mustard gas attacks close to the front.During World War II, nearly 350,000 women served in the Armed Forces, both at home and abroad. As all military nurses at the time—60,000 in all—were female, they were sent alongside men to campaigns throughout the world to care for and rehabilitate the throngs of injured on the frontlines. More than 150,000 worked within the Women’s Army Corps, an of cial part of the U.S. Army, some landing in Normandy after DDay and some serving in the Philippines, New Guinea and Australia.Meanwhile, the government’s “Rosie the Riveter” propaganda campaign, one of the most iconic images of women’s contributions during the war, was in uential in drawing up support among the country’s females to enter the workforce to support the war effort. Some 310,000 women worked in the U.S. aircraft industry, for example. During prewar years, women made up only about one percent of the industry’s total workforce, but by 1943 they comprised a full 65 percent of all workers in the industry. With the outbreak of the Korean War, Women Army Corps personnel were called back to active duty or given involuntary extensions to their contracts with the Army. Twenty percent served in the Far East, working in direct support of the combat theater in hospitals and as supply specialists, communicators, record keepers and administrators. At the same time, the number of WACs assigned to U.S. installations in Europe increased in reaction to worries that the Soviet Union would try to take advantage of America’s focus on the Korean Peninsula and make land grabs in Europe. When the Cold War reared up in the form of the Vietnam War, women serving in the WAC again See WOMEN, page 7

Scouts race against one another down Telemetry Hill Sunday.Scouts belt down Telemetry Hill Article and photos by Molly Premo Media Services Intern Kwajalein’s Cub Scouts held their annual Soap Box Derby at Telemetry Hill Sunday. Picking from a group of three sleek, gravity-powered cars, the Scouts sat at the top of Telemetry Hill—the highest elevation point on Kwajalein—and waited for Cub Scout Leader Mark McCollum to start each race. Competitors raced down two at a time and shot down the hill aiming to nish rst. The boys worked in groups of two or three to push the cars back up the hill after each heat. Although the sun was blazing hot, the water was cold and the icy lemonade kept participants going. Family members brought lawn chairs and relaxed in the shade while cheering on the Scouts racing down the hill. There was no single Scout that claimed a number one prize. But the boys enjoyed challenging one another and speeding through the nish line.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 29, 2014 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 29, 2014 WOMEN, from page 5 Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester became the first woman to earn the Silver Star Medal for exceptional valor since World War II for her actions during a 2005 ambush by insurgents in Iraq.Information, data and photos obtained from www.army.mil and www.defense.govcontributed to the U.S. war effort. The rst WAC of cer was assigned to Vietnam in 1962, and by 1965 WAC personnel were contributing in clerical, secretarial and administrative military occupational specialties. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson removed promotional restrictions on women of cers in the Armed Forces: it was nally possible for more than one woman in each service to hold the rank of colonel and for women to achieve general of cer rank. And in 1970 WAC of cers were promoted to the rank of brigadier general for the rst time in U.S. history. Women began entering the Army Reserves Of cers Training Program beginning in late 1972, and by 1981 approximately 40,000 women were enrolled in college and university ROTC units throughout the country; an additional 32,000 were enrolled in high school units. In 1975, weapons training for women became mandatory, and by 1977 combined basic training for men and women became standard policy. The following year, the WAC was disestablished as a separate corps. Men and women were nally combined into the same, uni ed service. Despite a 1994 rule banning women from serving in small ground combat units, females worked in crucial support roles in the 1990s and 2000s, serving as military police, intelligence of cers and medics who were sometimes attached to front lines units but not permitted to work in combat situations. It was only little more than a year ago that U.S. Department of Defense leaders formally ended the ban on women working in combat positions, opening 237,000 military jobs that were previously off limits for women. Today, women make up nearly 15 percent of the U.S. Armed Forces. They pilot helicopters and jets, work as surgeons and nurses and serve in indispensable intelligence operations. And by 2016, if the Pentagon’s schedule for integrating women into front-line combat holds, they may also work in dangerous infantry, armor and special operations—the nal obstacles to achieving parity with their male counterparts in the U.S. Armed Forces.Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School HonorRoll Recipients—First Semester, ending Jan. 18, 2014 *= 4.0 GPAGRADE 12High Honor Roll (3.6667+) Maddy Greene, Jennifer Hibberts, John Sholar*, Shenandoah Wrobel Honor Roll (3.5–3.6) Leightyn Cossey, Elizabeth Elkin Merit Roll (3.0–3.49) Ann-Marie Hepler, Stephanie Hibberts, Eltina John, Yomoko Kemem Daniel MurilloGRADE 11Honor Roll Mereille Bishop Merit Roll Dori deBrum, Jordan Hadley, Molly Premo, Daisy Wiltrout, Trey Tomas, Roanna ZackhrasGRADE 10High Honor Roll Addison Cossey*, Allison Hibberts*, Samuel Jahnke*, Wyatt Jones, Danielle Rivera, David Sholar*, Michael Sykes* Honor Roll Elizabeth Doerries Merit Roll Dayna Hepler, Wayland Sanborn, Ratu Tavutavuwale, John Tippetts, Allison Tomas, Jared WaseGRADE 9High Honor Roll Christine Abragan, DeVante Floor, omas Greene, Eric Murillo Honor Roll Chelsea Engelhard, Leah Lokeijak Caleigh Yurovchak Merit Roll MaryRuth Long, Claire Stepchew, Shawna WiltroutGRADE 8High Honor Roll Aidan Alejandro*, Elliott Baldy, Abigail Bishop, Jensyn Cole, Ian Galbraith, Allison Homuth*, Benjamin Jahnke, Cameron Jones, Chad Sykes* Honor Roll Auguston Lelet Merit Roll Dash Alfred, Kaikane Busquets, Andrew Lundberg, Allyson Moore, Janalynn Reimers, Megan SokGRADE 7High Honor Roll Alisha Church, Graeson Cossey, Andrew Elkin, Audrey Whatcott Honor Roll Christian Kirk Merit Roll Pania Alfred, Elise Hebert, Christina Jones L L A +

8The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 29, 2014 Saturday, March 29, 2014 DISPATCH FROM ROI Photos by Laura Pasquarella-SwainRoi residents dance to the tunes of The Josh Logan Trio March 21 at the Outrigger. JOSH LOGAN TRIO, from page 3 one of the best sunsets in history. It was amazing,” Comp said. On Kwajalein, they hit the beaches and played some Baggo. Comp went snorkeling for the rst time in his life at Emon Beach. “From what I’ve been told, that sets the bar up [high]. People said, ‘Don’t even bother going snorkeling anywhere else,’” he said. On their last day, they went to Glass Beach and Camp Hamilton to enjoy the water.The trio had never heard of the Marshall Islands before they booked their performance. After a little research, the New Englanders grew excited about the trip, but still had no idea how long the ight was going to be all the way from the east coast. They agreed that although the ights were brutal— the TSA, for example, con scated Comp’s hair products from his carry-on (see photo to understand why that’s traumatizing)—it was worth it to travel here to perform. “You get here and [the stress] all kind of eases away,” Costley said. Logan agreed and commented that just thinking about the pristine waters here was enough to combat feelings of stress. “I’ve never seen water that blue ever. It doesn’t even look real,” he said. After posting some photos of their journey online, Costley was contacted by a friend who used to live on Kwajalein as a child. His friend was able to dig up an old photo of their Oceanside home. Costley went back to the same house and took an updated photo for him. “It’s such a small world,” Logan commented.“We’ve done a ton of travelling, and we’ve played at a million different places,” Comp explained. “This is what we do; this is our job. So sometimes we’re kind of jaded and cynical from previous experiences, because that’s just part of the business. I think all three of us were just blown away by people going so far out of their way to help, because they actually care. … It was refreshing.” He said it was obvious that residents crave live music out here.The trio expressed deep appreciation to the local musicians who loaned equipment and helped with the shows. On Roi, the “Smells Like Fish” crew of Bob Barker, Allan Foreman, Stacey Helt and Easter, along with Community Activities Manager Laura Pasquarella-Swain were a huge help with equipment and logistics. On Kwajalein, equipment was donated by Kyle Miller, Jon Mitchell and Greg Spock. Barthle provided the drum kit and ran sound for both shows. They also thanked Entertainment Coordinator Midori Hobbs for keeping the group organized. They played “Waterfalls” especially for her at both Kwajalein shows. Of course, the group never would have been booked if Costley hadn’t known Kwajalein resident Tim Roberge for 15 years. Roberge brought the band proposal to the QOL committee and acted as “tour manager” during their visit. “It just seemed like everybody couldn’t do enough for you,” Costley said. Logan added, “We felt like rock stars.” Alana Brooks and Brandon Martin show off their dance moves during The Josh Logan Trio concert.
