MEDCOM has oversight for all medical care given to Army Soldiers and all Army medical facilities. Installation Management Command established a support agreement that allows a MEDCOM team to conduct staff assistance visits at USAG-KA on a recurring six-month rotation to ensure the Kwajalein Hospital is practicing at the same standards as other Army medical facilities. The team included Lt. Col. John Miller, Col. David Sproat and Maj. Angelika Chiri from MEDCOM, and Col. Greg Blythe from DENCOM. Sproat is the Assistant Chief of Staff for Clinical Operations in the Paci c region and has headed up the team that visits USAG-KA for 18 months. He said the goal of the staff assistance visits are to ensure the installation bene ciaries—whether they are Soldiers, contractors or civilians and their families—can feel con dent regarding the medical care they receive. “Our goal is a multidisciplinary, multifaceted team [comprised of] subject matter experts to provide consultation and oversight to validate the processes and procedures [at Kwajalein Hospital],” Sproat said. The team examined the processes and documentation in place at Kwajalein Hospital and made recommendations for improvements. “When we see things that are in variance with how we do things … we offer suggestions on how they can be improved,” Sproat said. The team began the visit with joint training that included all the hospital staff. It was an opportunity for personnel to raise issues of concern to the team. They also discussed community feedback from customer satisfaction surveys conducted this spring. Findings from the survey were incorporated into MEDCOM’s visit to identify areas of improvement. “We’ve seen a signi cant improvement in the comments received regarding people’s perceptions of their care,” Sproat said. “If I was living here, and my family was here, I would have no qualms about using this as my care facility.” “It’s very evident that there’s a collaborative effort from the entire hospital staff and the synergy of that staff is very noteworthy,” Miller said. “Each individual has made their contribution to make this a very good place.” Although they only visit twice a year, the teams communicate often. Every month they correspond via teleconference with hospital leadership to track progress and answer any questions. “The goal is to have continual communication to be able to enhance the ability of the staff here to take care of the patients,” Sproat said. Sproat gave accolades to Kwajalein Hospital Chief Medical Of cer Dr. Paulette Galbraith, Director of Nursing Jacqueline Jones and Kwajalein Hospital Administrator Christine DeJongh for the work they’ve done to improve the hospital and patient care. “I think they’re doing a tremendous job given the remote location and the constraints that they work with,” Sproat said. Separately from MEDCOM, support agreements are in place that allows a facilities engineer to visit once a year to evaluate the hospital structures, medical maintenance staff to provide consultation services support for medical equipment and a U.S. Army Veterinarian to visit four times a year to support the Kwajalein Range Services veterinary technician.

With such a broad age range and varied bike sizes and types, performance comparisons can be interesting. A performance of note was the youngest solo participant: Claire Anderson is a six-yearold kindergartner who traveled twice around KwajaleinÂ’s runway on her tiny commuter bike. Her mom, Jenn accompanied her. Also an inspiration, the Anderson family of six covered the whole course as individuals. Another notable family was the Parkers; parents Peter and Florence, along with their six children, all participated either individually or on their family team. The family of Doug Hepler and Amy LaCost, with ve children, were also all present in one way or another; oldest daughter Annie worked as a lifeguard.There were 110 total participants this year, counting solo contestants, team members and a few infants and toddlers toted by parents.Kwajalein Running Club thanks Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities staff, led by Kim Yarnes, for partnering to make the event happen.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 Saturday, May 17, 2014 Smooth sailing at the KYC Sunfish Regatta Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorThe Kwajalein Yacht Club’s brand-new eet of LaserPerformance Sun sh sailboats was put to good use during the KYC Sun sh Regatta on Sunday. One of several sailing parties the club opens up to the community each year, the regatta brought out a few dozen Kwajalein residents eager to let their hair blow in the tradewinds. Grabbing up tufts of easterly wind, the brightly-colored lateen sails of the Sun sh pulled newcomers and experienced sailors alike across the azure turquoise waters off the Camp Hamilton beach into the early afternoon. It was the rst opportunity for U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll residents who are not KYC members to get their hands on the sailboats since the eet’s arrival on Kwajalein a few months ago. Originally engineered by Alcort, Inc. in the early 1950s, the Sun sh sailboat is widely recognized by the international sailing community as one of the most popular sailboat designs ever built. Because of the boat’s simple, triangularshaped sail and streamlined two-line rigging, it’s a breeze to both set up and pilot. And the lightweight berglass hull—weighing in at about 120 pounds—lets it rip quickly through the water. Because there isn’t much of a learning curve to sailing the 14-feet-long Sun sh sailboats, they’re often the rst port of call for greenhorn sailors—gateway boats for bigger, more complicated boats down the line—said Kwajalein resident Ed Zehr, commodore of the KYC. “Most yacht clubs use Sun sh or other pramtype boats as their sailing program trainers,” he said, sipping on a bottle of cold water and watching over the boats crisscrossing through the water up to a half mile off shore. The KYC’s new eet of Sun sh came not a moment too soon, he said. The old eet had almost kicked the bucket. “The Yacht Club had a eet of Sun sh that were pushing 40 years old, and they were in various states of disrepair. We just couldn’t repair them anymore,” he said. “We put together a proposal for the Quality of Life Committee, and they were generous enough to spot us the money to purchase new boats.” The new boats, which came directly from LaserPerformance’s North American headquarters in Rhode Island at the end of 2013, were assembled only a couple months ago by KYC members. They’ve been in and out of the water since. Kwaj resident Patrick Ward, a 20year veteran on the seas, is one of the many longtime sailors who initially cut his teeth on these types of boats. But he still loves to sail them today. “I learned on a Sun sh and gradually worked my way up to bigger boats,” he said during one of the short respites he enjoyed on the beach in between Sun sh rides. While he routinely unfurls the giant sails of his 34-feet Mate’ oa to trek throughout the atoll on long day trips, Ward still enjoys rigging up one of the Sun sh every now and then and zipping through the waters around Camp Hamilton. But what he might enjoy even more, though, Patrick Ward holds the sheets tight to gain speed on one of a half dozen Sunfish sailboats introduced to the community at the KYC Sunfish Regatta Sunday. Kwajalein residents cut across the lagoon waters off Camp Hamilton during the KYC Sunfish Regatta Sunday.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 is teaching others—anyone with an interest in learning the basics—to sail. Indeed, if you hop onto a Sun sh with Ward you’re sure to come back to shore 20 or 30 minutes later knowing a sheet line from a halyard line, how to tack into the wind and jibe downwind, how to recover from being in irons and, perhaps, even how to safely right a capsized boat. For some people, their experience riding on and piloting a Sun sh Sunday was their rst ever on a sailboat—and for Zehr and the KYC, that’s good news. Inviting people onto Sun sh, the commodore said, is an effective way of getting people interested in sailing and turning them into members of the sailing community. And that is exactly the outcome that Kwajalein needs, he added. “There used to be a much bigger sailing presence here,” he said. “I remember my rst tour [on USAGKA]. There were probably another half dozen sail boats out in the mooring eld. … The community has changed; there aren’t as many sailors as there were. And that’s what we’re doing here—promoting sailing as a sport, as a form of recreation, so that more people can come out and enjoy it.” The Sun sh Regatta is one of several events that the KYC organizes each year to increase community members’ exposure to the thrills of harnessing the power of the wind to travel—one of the oldest forms of transportation known to man, and still one of the most relevant today in the Marshall Islands. The next event the club has planned for the community will be the grand opening of the new KYC clubhouse, planned for June 8. “We just open ourselves up to the community to show them what we’re all about,” Zehr concluded. “You know, we’re part of the community. We welcome more people to come be part of our yacht club.” Children man inflatable rafts and surfboards while their parents relax on the sands of Camp Hamilton Sunday. e r h a lf do z e n s a il bo a ts out i n the moorin g e ld … T h e communit y h as c h an g e d ; t h ere aren ’ t as man y s ai lo r s a s the r e w e r e An d th a t’s wh at we ’ re d oi ng h ere— pr omotin g s ai l in g as a sport, as a f orm o f recre ation, so t h at more peop l e can come o ut an d en j oy it. ” Th e Sun s h Re g atta is one o f se vera l events t h at t h e KYC or g anizes eac h y ear to increase communit y mem b ers ’ exposure to t h e t h ri ll s o f h arnessin g t h e power o f t h e win d to t rav el — o n e of the oldest fo rm s of transportation k nown to man, an d st il l on e of t he m os t re le va nt t o d a y in t h e Mars h a ll Is l an d s.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 Saturday, May 17, 2014 Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorKwajalein resident Jack Montgomery has one of the most futuristic-looking, modern bicycles on U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll. A contraption built in the style of a recumbent tadpole tricycle, the thing looks like a prop from a “Terminator” movie—minus the face-melting laser canons. Montgomery got the inspiration for the design from a news feature written about a few guys in Denmark who had begun making bikes from aluminum and stainless steel. When he visited their website, he got his hands on a set of basic, stripped-down plans for building one of their bikes. He knew he had to make it his own. “I thought, ‘Man, that’d be the perfect bike out here,’” he said. “It was a homemade bike built out of aluminum and stainless steel, and I just couldn’t get it out of my head until I actually built one. And it worked out a lot better than I thought it was going to.” Modifying the Danes’ plans to make the bike a bit more Kwaj-friendly, Montgomery constructed the frame by fastening one-inch by one-inch aluminum tubing with stainless steel bolts. The goal, he said, was to make the trike as hardy as possible, able to withstand the elements that the Marshall Islands throw at bikes on the atoll. To make the bike even stronger, he pieced the aluminum tubing together into what is called an “xyz space frame,” in which each joint houses three bolts. “It makes a very strong frame,” Montgomery said. But all that metal does provide for one slight downside. The tadpole has plenty of junk in its trunk. “Yeah, it’s pretty heavy,” he conceded, laughing. “It turns out to be a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be.” Still, the bike isn’t dif cult at all to pedal and get up to speed. The ride is very smooth, and the handling is solid. He admits, though, that during the build it wasn’t easy to envision how the thing would maneuver. “I didn’t really even understand how it was going to steer until I actually built it,” he said. “Even looking at 3-bolt “xyz space frame” up close

9The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 the plans, it was kind of dif cult to gure out how it was going to work.” He’s had it on the road since January 2013, and he’s run into very few problems relating to keeping the trike maintained. All the pivot points are oiled, and he uses a special type of WD40 product on the chain—all 18 feet of it—religiously. Aside from regular maintenance, there’s nothing Montgomery has to worry about to the keep his bike safe—especially not theft. On an island where Sun bikes are a dime a dozen, his all-aluminum, modern tadpole is one of a kind. “I don’t even lock it when I’m at the airport, you know when I go up to Roi,” he said. “I’ve left it there for a couple of days. Everyone knows it’s mine.” “This is the Blue Streak,” said longtime Kwajalein resident Lou Velazquez, as he patted the seat of his custom single-speed stretch cruiser outside the Print Shop May 10. The bike, named after its unique paint job—dark turquoise blue at the front of the frame, fading to aqua toward the rear—was custom-made by previous Kwajalein resident and Kwaj Kid Kai Kalahiki. Velazquez was fortunate to get the second-to-last custom Kalahiki build before he and his family did a PCS several years ago. What makes the Blue Streak special, Velazquez said, is the rare composite frame that Kalahiki was able to put together. While the bicycle creator disassembled, welded back together and painted quite a few bikes during his years on Kwajalein, Velazquez says his is the only one in which berglass was incorporated into the frame. “He did a bunch of them,” Velazquez said. “Mine is the only one that’s unique, even out of the ones that he made. Because it’s berglass. It’s berglass and stainless steel.” Without knowing otherwise, you would never guess that Velazquez’s Blue Streak was welded together from sections ripped off a dissected Sun bike frame. The seat tube, bottom tube, top tube—everything— t together so perfectly, it appears as if the bike just rolled off a robotic factory assembly line. Nor would you guess that the bike has lived on Kwajalein for a full nine years. On an island where some bikes don’t last two weeks without growing their rst colonies of rust on their handlebars, forks and wheels, the Blue Streak looks great. “It’s held up pretty well over the years,” Velazquez said. “I’ve changed a few things out, though.” Forks, wheels and tires have been replaced, for example. And he oils it regularly and does spot treatments with rust-proof paint to strengthen any chinks in the bike’s armor. But that still doesn’t explain overall excellent condition of the bike, paint job and all. So what’s Velazquez’s secret? “I keep it indoors,” he said. “I bring it up to my room every night, and I bring it into the shop” during the workday. Because there is really only so much you can do with preventative measures like oiling and rust-proo ng to protect your bike outside in this climate, he has opted to keep the Blue Streak out of the salt, wind and rain as much as possible. “Keeping it indoors is the best thing,” he said. “It helps it all the way around.” One might question why he would put up with hauling a bike up and down ights of stairs every day to protect it from the elements. But because much of the frame is made from lightweight materials like berglass, it’s surprisingly light. It’s actually not much of a hassle at all. “Pick it up,” he said. “Yeah, it’s very light.” It may take a little bit of dedication, but the Blue Streak is proof that if one takes care of his bike and makes sure it’s made of the right kinds of weather-resistant metals, it will have a long life on the atoll. After all, Velazquez is a man who has lived on Kwajalein for nearly 10 years. And in those 10 years, he has owned only two bikes. His rst, a bike he brought from Johnston Atoll, was devoured by the elements and reduced to a rusty mess in three months. His second, the Blue Streak, is a nine-year-old veteran of the island that will last years into the future. 9 KwajaleinHourglass SaturdayMay17 s ag o. h at ma k es t h e B l ue Strea k specia l Ve l azquez sai d e rare composite f rame t h at Ka l a h i k i was a bl e to t o g et h er.

10The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 17, 2014 Saturday, May 17, 2014 KHS senior chosen as Presidential Scholar Hourglass Reports Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School senior John Sholar was selected as a 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholar. Sholar is one of 141 American high school seniors who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, artistic excellence, leadership, citizenship, service, and contribution to school and community. The U.S. Presidential Scholars will be honored for their accomplishments in Washington D.C., from June 22-25. “I’m very excited to receive the award,” Sholar said. “When I began the process, I certainly didn’t expect to make it this far, and I’m honored to be recognized like this. I know that I couldn’t have done it without the support of the Kwajalein community, especially all the great teachers at the school.” One teacher in particular was chosen by Sholar for recognition by the U.S. Department of Education. Sholar named Jennifer Newberry as his most in uential teacher at KHS. “Ms. Newberry is a fantastic teacher, and she’s challenged me over the past two years,” Sholar said. Newberry taught AP English his junior year and AP Literature and Composition this year. She has helped him tremendously with his advanced reading comprehension and writing skills, which translated to his scholarship and college essay requirements. “She’s dedicated to helping all of her students develop as readers and writers, and her enthusiasm and excitement are contagious.” The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, appointed by President Barack Obama, selects honored scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership, and demonstrated commitment to high ideals. Of the three million students expected to graduate from high school this year, more than 3,900 candidates quali ed for the 2014 awards determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams, and through nominations made by Chief State School Of cers or the National YoungArts Foundation’s nationwide YoungArts™ competition. Three seniors from KHS were nominated. The 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and from U.S. families living abroad, as well as 15 chosen at-large and 20 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts. KHS senior John Sholar was chosen as a 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholar. He will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in June.KHS Honor Roll Recipients Third Quarter*= 4.0 GPAGRADE 12High Honor Roll (3.6667+) Maddy Greene, Jennifer Hibberts, John Sholar, Shenandoah Wrobel Honor Roll (3.5–3.6) Elizabeth Elkin, Ann-Marie Hepler, Eltina John, Yomoko Kemem Merit Roll (3.0–3.49) Leightyn Cossey, Stephanie Hibberts, Daniel Murillo, Je erson WaseGRADE 11Honor Roll Mereille Bishop, Daisy Wiltrout Merit Roll Dori deBrum, Molly Premo, Trey Tomas, Roanna ZackhrasGRADE 10High Honor Roll Addison Cossey*, Elizabeth Doerries, Allison Hibberts, Samuel Jahnke, Wyatt Jones, Danielle Rivera, David Sholar*, Michael Sykes* Merit Roll Ariana Alejandro, Dayna Hepler, Wayland Sanborn, John Tippetts, Allison Tomas, Jared WaseGRADE 9High Honor Roll Christine Abragan, DeVante Floor, omas Greene, Eric Murillo, Cli ord Richey, Caleigh Yurovchak Honor Roll Chelsea Engelhard, Leah Lokeijak Merit Roll Colleen Furgeson, MaryRuth LongGRADE 8High Honor Roll Aidan Alejandro*, Elliott Baldy, Abigail Bishop*, Ian Galbraith, Allison Homuth*, Benjamin Jahnke, Cameron Jones, Chad Sykes* Honor Roll Jensyn Cole, Megan Sok Merit Roll Dash Alfred, Kaikane Busquets, Auguston Lelet, Allyson Moore, Janalynn ReimersGRADE 7High Honor Roll Alisha Church, Graeson Cossey, Andrew Elkin, Christian Kirk, Audrey Whatcott Merit Roll Elise Hebert, Kaya Sylvester L L A +
