Ask & nswer Feedback from the ongoing KRS survey regarding service experiences Community Activities rental equipment (tables, tents) are in bad shape (rusted, broken, covered in mold). Do we still have to pay to rent equipment in such bad shape? e rental equipment is regularly inspected. Given the limited resources available, CA continues to use the equipment as long as it is serviceable, even if it isnt pretty. Continued use outdoors does cause wear and tear. Recently, many of the tables were taken out of service, but the remaining stock should be in good Kwaj condition. e same has been done with the tents. Please note, quantities are extremely limited, so if you have an upcoming event, plan early. If you are not satis ed with the equipment delivered, contact the CA O ce prior to your function to discuss alternatives. A request for new equipment was included in the budget for this year.

Participants competed in three age divisions, fencing in several bouts to determine the top three places, each earning a shiny coconut trophy to take home. First place winners were Levi Merrymon in Youth 10, Clara Winkler in Youth 12 and Jason Merrymon in Youth 14. Salle Kwajalein Fencing Club was formed in November 2014. The group of interested novices was brought together by Gillian Ghearing. While Ghearing acts as head coach of the fencing club, she comes with an extensive competition background in the sport.Ghearing has fenced since 2010 and had seen much success in the sport under the direction of her coach Charles Bosco. When she moved to Kwajalein it was dif cult for her to leave behind her fencing club colleagues and potential to rise in the sport. After talking with several Kwaj kids, she realized there was an interest in fencing on island. After much time, effort and planning, Ghearing formed Salle Kwajalein as a private organization approved to function at USAG-KA. Training began in November 2014, and twice a week coach Ghearing helps fencers improve with drills and practice bouts. The tournament Monday was the rst chance for the group to show off their Salle Kwajalein Fencing Club Tournament ResultsYouth 10Youth 12Youth 14Open1. Levi Merrymon1. Clara Winkler1. Jason Merrymon1.

The ve Cub Scout packs competed within their individual groups, and then also went head-to-head against all pack members. Sibling and Celebrity categories were open to Scout family members and community participants. The overall pack winner was Ethan Venghaus with his car “Bio-Racer.” Scouts spent weeks leading up to the Derby working in the Wood Shop on their cars. Parents assisted for safety reasons, but design and labor was mostly completed by the Scouts themselves. On Monday, parents help set up the custom race track and decorated the room in true derby fashion. Parents, siblings, friends and community members sat in the audience watching the wooden cars y down the track. Boy Scout helper Aiden Mitchell assists at the Pinewood Derby as the official starter of all races. Cub Scouts were given full design privileges for their Pinewood Derby car entries.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 8 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 For generations, the story of American progress has been shaped by the inextinguishable beliefs that change is always possible and a brighter future lies ahead. With tremendous strength and abiding resolve, our ancestors—some of whom were brought to this land in chains—have woven their resilient dignity into the fabric of our Nation and taught us that we are not trapped by the mistakes of history. It was these truths that found expression as foot soldiers and Freedom Riders sat in and stood up, marched and agitated for justice and equality. This audacious movement gave birth to a new era of civil and voting rights, and slowly, we renewed our commitment to an ideal at the heart of our founding: no matter who you are, what you look like, how modest your beginnings, or the circumstances of your birth, you deserve every opportunity to achieve your God-given potential. As we mark National African American History Month, we celebrate giants of the civil rights movement and countless other men and women whose names are etched in the hearts of their loved ones and the cornerstones of the country they helped to change. We pause to re ect on our progress and our history—not only to remember, but also to acknowledge our un nished work. We reject the false notion that our challenges lie only in the past, and we recommit to advancing what has been left undone. Brave Americans did not struggle and sacri ce to secure fundamental rights for themselves and others only to see those rights denied to their children and grandchildren. Our Nation is still racked with division and poverty. Too many children live in crumbling neighborhoods, cycling through substandard schools and being affected by daily violence in their communities. And Americans of all races have seen their wages and incomes stagnate while inequality continues to hold back hardworking families and entire communities. But the trajectory of our history gives us hope. Today, we stand on the shoulders of courageous individuals who endured the thumps of billy clubs, the blasts of re hoses, and the pain of watching dreams be deferred and denied. We honor them by investing in those around us and doing all we can to ensure every American can reach their full potential. Our country is at its best when everyone is treated fairly and has the chance to build the future they seek for themselves and their family. This means providing the opportunity for every person in America to access a world-class education, safe and affordable housing, and the job training that will prepare them for the careers of tomorrow. Like the countless, quiet heroes who worked and bled far from the public eye, we know that with enough effort, empathy and perseverance, people who love their country can change it. Together, we can help our Nation live up to its immense promise. This month, let us continue that unending journey toward a more just, more equal, and more perfect Union. NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim February 2015 as National African American History Month. I call upon public of cials, educators, librarians, and all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities. Each February, the Army honors the remarkable contributions of African American men and women in the building of our great Nation. This year as we recognize “A Century of Black Life, History and Culture,” we celebrate the profound resilience and perseverance of past generations and the realization of dreams shared by many Americans today. African Americans from all walks of life have long served as champions of social and political change, and it is the privilege of our Nation to pay tribute to that legacy. “The United States Army has long been a model for embracing the strengths of cultural diversity. For countless generations, outstanding African Americans—both Soldiers and Civilians—have given unsel shly of their time and talent to ensure the success and vibrancy of the Nation. “During African American History Month, we ask our entire Army Family to publically commemorate the signi cant contributions that help make our Army what it is today—the premiere ghting force in the world. Army Strong!” By President Barack Obama 2015 African American History Month Proclamation


6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 8 Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 skills to the community.Participants were divided into three groups based on age. Because the club is new, several youth competed in more than one age division. Bouts lasted ve minutes or ended when one fencer reached 10 points. Coach Ghearing acted as the tournament of cial, calling out points and directing the actions of each fencer. As this was the rst fencing tournament, she reminded competitors of the rules and gave pointers throughout the bouts. While the sport is competitive, it also focuses on respect. Fencers salute each other, the of cials and audience before bouts. They shake hands and smile at one another afterwards. While learning proper technique and improving in the sport is the goal, fencing is also about improving self-con dence, said Dolly Ghearing, GillianÂ’s mother. Fencing provides both physical and mental challenges for youth. The rapid footwork and bladework provide a high-impact aerobic workout, building the fencerÂ’s stamina, strength and coordination. Because every move by an opponent prompts a reaction and response, strategic thinking must be exercised in scoring points. 10-year-old Clara Winkler, who won rst place in the Youth 12 division and second place in Youth 10, said her rst tournament was really fun. Because it was a tournament, she said everyone was trying twice as hard as they usually do in practice. She likes everything about fencing, although the toughest part is that because they are still learning, they will get hit with the blade in the hand or arm and it hurts a little. But, she plans to continue with the sport. Anyone interested in learning more about the Salle Kwajalein Fencing Club can contact Ghearing at FENCING, from page 3 LEFT: Youth 10 division: Emily Ryon, third place; Levi Merrymon, first place; Clara Winkler, second place.
