2The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 43 Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014 Cancer survivors are invited to lead the start of the 1st annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk/Run held on Kwajalein Monday. 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.

Almost 100 participants showed up on Ocean Road across from the hospital dressed in pink to either walk one mile or run a 5K. Babies in strollers, dogs on leashes, families, unaccompanied and host nation friends gathered to show support and bring awareness to one of the most common cancers to affect women in their lifetime. “We were hoping to bring to the community education of the risk and prevention of breast cancer,” said Amy Sandifer, registered nurse at Kwajalein Hospital. “We provided the women who participated in the walk a shower card that instructs on self breast exams with a calendar for a reminder.” There are enough cards for all women in the Kwajalein community. You can get yours at the hospital. Breast Cancer will be diagnosed in one in eight women in their life time. A healthy lifestyle will help in prevention of breast cancer. Equally as important is early detection in the form of monthly self breast exams and annual mammograms. “We so appreciate the support this community showed with the wonderful numbers that participated and look forward to this being an annual event,” Sandifer said. “Our plan for next year will be raising funds for research and hopefully pink T-shirts.”

RIGHT: Emily Ryon’s mustache-wearing pumpkin was declared the competition’s funniest entry. Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorA large group of scuba divers hit the warm water of Kwajalein Lagoon Sunday to try their luck in the 2014 Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest. Sponsored by the Kwajalein Scuba Club, the contest featured six separate categories that eight teams tried to win with their jack-o’-lanterns: best overall, second-best overall, thirdbest overall, most original, scariest and funniest. Taking the top prize of $100 in cash was a gnarled beast of a pumpkin created by Craig Shaffer and Rita Dominguez. It sported large, intimidating, slanting eyes, an expertly carved top and mangled up dead tree limbs for arms, the uniqueness of which swayed the judges of the contest in Shaffer’s and Dominguez’ favor. Shaffer, who almost didn’t even bother entering the contest, said that he was glad his teammate convinced him to go down to the beach and participate Sunday. “The funniest thing was that I really had decided not to participate until the last minute when [Dominguez] proposed it,” he said. “I just couldn’t gure what we could do that would be able to compete at all with masterful designs I had seen true artists do a few years ago. Apparently some of the heavy hitters on island from years ago have left or grew tired. Anyway it was fun, and memorable.” Bradley and Beth Mitchell took home a prize of $50 in cash from the Scuba Club for the second-best overall entry, as well as the award for the most original jacko’-lantern. Kneeling on the sandy lagoon oor at a depth of about 20 feet, the couple took a different approach during the contest. Instead of carving out the eyes, nose and mouth for a traditional jacko’-lantern design, they carved out one enormous, jagged mouth, created a tail from the cut-out mouth, attached small, old clam shells for ns and poked out two small eyes. The result? A Pac Man-looking creature that was half sh and half pumpkin. Winning the third-best overall distinction and a $25 prize for what the judges decided was also the scariest entry of the contest, was the entry featured below at left. A classic jack-o’-lantern that would look good on anyone’s front porch this month, it boasts a long, jagged, creepy mouth that runs along the length of the pumpkin’s bot-tom and ghoulish eyes that peer out from above. As for the rest of the winning entries, Emily Ryon’s happy little jack-o’-lantern won the distinction for funniest entry for sporting a curly handlebar mustache and big smile. Judges Monica Sadler and Jenifer Peterson said that it was probably the rst pumpkin they had seen with a mustache— and de nitely the rst one they had seen carved underwater. While not all teams went away with a cash prize, Kwajalein Scuba Club President Dan Farnham reminded the group that everyone who participated was a winner and would receive some cool swag from the club’s Dive Locker.

RIGHT: A Seabee hauls off some of the 375,000 pounds of aggregate needed for development builds on Enniburr and Ebey e. Construction Civic Action Detail-Marshall Islands, a detachment of Navy Seabees currently on U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll, is gearing up for a series of major construction projects that the unit will build on Kwajalein Atoll in the coming months. Part of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133 based in Gulfport, Mississippi, CCAD-Marshall Islands is one of many small Seabees detachments that the battalion has deployed worldwide for humanitarian outreach efforts. And now that the men and women of the unit have the small mountain of raw materials they need to build the projects, they’re ready to get their hands dirty. Sitting at the controls of a heavy construction forklift Oct. 18, Equipment Operator Constructionman Apprentice Bridget Osborn, one of only 20 Seabees in the detachment on USAG-KA, worked with a half-dozen other crewmen on the ground to hoist and transport 375,000 pounds of concrete aggregate to staging areas at the barge slip ramp on the west end of the island. Coming on the heels of a six-week shipping timeframe, the arrival of the 125 1.5-ton bags of aggregate was a welcome sign for the men and women of the detachment. The next port of call for the materials will be the islands of Enniburr and Ebeye, where the Seabees will renovate and build on several projects important to the health and welfare of the communities. Navy Lt.j.g. Meredith Martin, the of cer in charge of CCAD-Marshall Islands, discussed the builds that her team has lined up for the islands. On Enniburr a new water distribution point on the island and work on the island’s elementary school are on the table for the detachment, she said. A new rainwater catchment system complete with gutters and storage tanks will be installed with a new six-stall restroom facility the Seabees will also build from the ground up. “Building that bathroom facility from scratch is a pretty big undertaking,” Martin said. “We’re building a septic tank, setting that in the ground, installing a leach eld—which is all the pipes and ltration system—and then building the facility itself out of concrete block. Just the logistics of getting our materials there, getting our equipment on the island … is going to be an interesting challenge for us.” On Ebeye the Seabees will focus their efforts on the expansive, open-air Island Community Center. They’ll install new outdoor, marine climate light xtures, new sheeting to cover the outside of the structure, more concrete slabs on the oor inside and new gutters and storage tanks to catch rainwater. A longer than anticipated wait for materials has given the CCAD a tight schedule to complete their humanitarian projects. But Martin said they’re up to the challenge. “We have a lot of work to do, but that’s good,” she said. “It’s good to have plenty going on. We like to be busy.” The outreach projects planned on USAG-KA’s neighboring islands, Martin explained, are part of Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133’s mission to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief to local communities in the Paci c Command region. “We’re on a green deployment, which means we’re out supporting humanitarian missions for the most part,” she said. “And we’re also in various locations for disaster relief.” Should a nasty typhoon tear through the Philippines or Palau, for instance, she and her unit would be able to quickly pack up and move out to help with recovery and rebuilding, she said. As long as there are no emergencies, though, her team will remain on USAG-KA, hammering away on the builds until their planned departure in January. It’s a far cry from the battalion’s last deployment to Afghanistan in 2012, where it was the last active duty Seabee battalion to deploy to the war-torn country. Tasked with building timesensitive projects like forward operating bases and outposts for combat troops


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 43 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014 Photo by Lt. j. g. Meredith Martin Supplies needed to build a six-stall bathroom facility for the elementary school on Enniburr arrive on the garrison Oct. 18 along with hundreds of thousands of pounds of raw materials. Equipment Operator 3rd Class Nathan Suhy and Equipment Operator Construction Apprentice Bridget Osborn transport and spread gravel along the base of the Vet’s Hall to improve stormwater drainage away from the building. in dangerous conditions, projects in the desert were high-impact, stressful builds that often forced Seabees to do jobs outside of their technical expertise. At forward operating bases carpenters may be assigned to drill water wells, and electricians may help build roads, for instance. Out there, “the job just has to get done,” Martin said. In the Marshall Islands, though, there are no insurgents, no re ghts and no improvised explosive devices to worry about. Apart from keeping an eye on falling coconuts every now and then, there is nothing to distract the Seabees from their assignments. They get the time and space to use the skills they’ve been trained on: That’s the bene t of working on green deployments, Martin said. “On green deployments we assign Seabees to their deployment units speci cally because they have a certain skill set that is needed to complete assigned projects,” Martin said. “Plumbers do plumbing work, electricians do electrical work, etc.” The 20 members of CCAD-Marshall Islands have already begun putting their skills to use around Kwajalein. While the detachment waited for the supplies needed for the builds on Enniburr and Ebeye, they got started on a few goodwill projects on the island to help forge a stronger relationship with the Army, and USAG-KA in particular. The most high-pro le build currently underway on Kwajalein is a completelynew hexagonal-shaped pavilion under construction at Coral Sands Beach. The building’s concrete foundation is already complete, and the progress has come as good news to Kwajalein residents who frequented the old pavilion that was condemned more than a year ago. “My family and I are really looking forward to the completion of the Coral Sands facility,” Kwaj resident Dave Dethlefsen said Thursday. “It’s the perfect place to play at the beach, cool off in the water and cook out. ... I can say with certainty that it will be used extensively once it’s nished.” In addition to some work the Seabees are doing in a meeting room damaged by ooding at the Vet’s Hall, the detachment is building a new shower facility for C-badge workers at one of the recycling warehouses on the west end of the island. “That’s primarily to bene t the Marshallese who work here so that they have a place to clean up at the end of the day,” Martin said. “The garrison provided all the materials, and we’re providing the labor and building it out.” As for free time, the Seabees on USAG-KA have been eagerly taking in the what the tropical islands have to offer, Martin said. “I know the guys have been out enjoying the beach. A couple of them have been on shing trips,” Martin said. “They go hang out at the Vet’s Hall and the Ocean View Club and get to know the local population. We’ve done several of the community activities. Some of us did the [Kwajalein Running Club] Columbus Day Run. They participated in the Fire Muster and the Zombie Run. So, we’re really enjoying being in kind of a small town environment. It’s just nice to have a community here that we can get involved with.”

The Social serves not only as a kickoff to Halloween festivities for island youth, but also as an opportunity for Kwaj kids to let loose and just have some fun. This year’s event was held Oct. 18 at the Richardson Ravine—a shallow “pool” lled each year by the Kwajalein Fire Department speci cally for this event. Midori Hobbs, entertainment coordinator, and Mandie Morris, recreation and programs manager, coordinated the annual event for the youngsters. Kids were separated into groups by age. Preschoolers went rst, accompanied by parents, who were often Bottom, left to right: Rachelle Kilgore, Reid Sadowski, Jeanette Reimers, Matai McCollum, Silas Chavana and Taruru Naut.

Next went grades K-2, 3-6 and nally junior and senior high school students. No matter their age, the kids ran, splashed, jumped and played during their 20-minute time slot in the Ravine. While some kids made it their mission to slather their friends with shaving cream, others were perfectly content smearing it on themselves. Shaving cream hair-dos were abundant, as were a few shaving cream beards. Meg Ardrey creates a shaving cream hairdo.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 43 Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014 Scouts survive Kwajalein elementsArticle and photo by Glen McClellan Scout Master The Boy Scouts completed a survival overnight trip on Kwajalein Sunday and Monday. Three weeks of training leading up to the event was given by Dr. Ralph Jones, a survival expert and visiting surgeon. Jones has the inside scoop on how to survive in the wilderness and shared that experience with the boys. Each Scout put together a lightweight survival kit that included clever essentials needed to live in the wild. Each Scout had to start three res using three different methods—all without using matches or lighters. Generating the rst little bit of smoke was relatively easy. Much harder was growing it into a full-blown aming camp re. Overall the Scouts had an amazing 94 percent success rate using different techniques. One important aspect of survival is protecting yourself from the elements. Scouts built overnight shelters using natural materials plus whatever they could nd in their survival kit. There were plenty of long wooden branches available from a large fallen Australian Pine and plenty of palm fronds laying around. Jane Abston, Buildings and Grounds supervisor, arranged for the palm fronds to be left for the Scouts. It was a perfect night for camping and the Scouts were not slowed down in the slightest by a small amount of rain in the morning.Since this was a survival event, the Scouts cooked all their food without utensils, pots, pans or even a grill. This made cleanup a snap! Steak on a stick was the main course for dinner. Wyatt Jones, senior patrol leader, commented that it was one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. For dessert, they wrapped pastry dough around the end of a large stick and baked it to golden perfection over the coals. After cooling, they slid the pastry off the stick and stuffed it with lling and glazed the top with chocolate frosting to make chocolate clairs. As an added bonus, the Scouts got to meet the visiting Navy Seabees and watch them erect the framework for the new Coral Sands pavilion. The Seabees were especially friendly and it was great watching them work. As the trip wound to a close Monday, the Scouts headed back to the Scout Hut for pizza. This was the rst Kwaj camping trip for Scout dad Humberto Jones, who recently moved to Kwajalein from Virginia. His parting words as he walked out the Scout Hut door were, “This really was a fun trip!” It was great to witness the positive attitude of all the boys and parents who ‘survived.’ From left, Cameron Jones, John Tippetts and Wyatt Jones sit under the survival shelter they built by lashing together a sturdy framework of branches and then tiling it with split palm fronds. Dr. ‘Indiana’ Ralph Jones shows Scouts how to coax a full blown fire from a tiny smoking ember. Ian Galbraith stands behind his survival shelter.

In 2000, Golf Digest hired Francis Scheid to determine the odds of making a hole in one. Scheid broke the odds down based on the quality of the player and the amount of play. He said that the odds of a PGA tour player making a hole in one were 3,000 to one. His data showed a low handicap player to have 5,000 to one odds, while an average handicap player had 12,000 to one odds. His study also showed that if you had a low handicap and played 1,000 rounds of golf then you had a ve to one chance of making a hole in one. So I guess the moral of the story is: We need to be playing more golf! Jokas scores hole in oneSadies invite Roi gentlemen to play round of golf on Columbus Day Roi-Namur Country Club golfers played a Sadie Hawkins tournament on Columbus Day, Oct. 14. “Sadies” (pictured above, right) inv ited four male golfers to play on her team.
