Whether you donated to help alleviate medical costs or help homeowners repair damage from rough weather recently, your help goes a long way.Thumbs Up! URORMEJ means “provocation to a quarrel.” This phrase or meaning is traditionally depicted by the Ak—or frigatebird—attacking the Pejwak—noddy tern—in the air in order to steal its food. It is a sign of warring to come. While the small, isolated state of the islands in the past made it so that community harmony was strongly desired, quarreling was an inevitable part of life for the largely peaceful native islanders—as has been the case with different peoples all over the world. When opposing clans did come to blows, the bloodshed could be summed up with a single phrase: URORMEJ!URORMEJ! Photo of a lemonpeel angel sh by Brandi Mueller This lemonpeel angel sh (centropyge avissima) was photographed by Kwaj resident Brandi Mueller outside of the lagoon on the ocean side of the atoll. Native to the central Paci c Ocean and the eastern Indian Ocean, lemonpeel angel sh is known for its striking yellow exterior and a solitary black spot that adorns each of its sides. Fun facts: They occur mostly in harem groups, consisting of a single male and several females. They can also undergo male-to-female sex change, a process that takes between two and three months. Despite the species’ strong following in the aquarium trade, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species still classi es this angel sh as a species of least concern. Its numbers are plentiful, and there has been no substantial habitat loss for the species, the group reports.

Bronwyn Galbraith, Kayla Hepler and Sean Hepler competed in the 11-12 age group for swimming. Galbraith, new to swimming this year, swam in ve events. It was her rst time competing internationally and her rst time competing in an Olympic-sized, fresh water venue. She earned three personal best times and met many new swimming friends from other teams, including several swim teams from Guam, Saipan and Palau. Sean swam in seven events this year, including the 200M breaststroke; this was the rst time he was eligible to swim the event. He earned six personal bests and placed in three events, earning a total of 11 points for the team. Kayla swam nine events—the maximum allowed—including the 200M individual medley. She placed in all nine events, earning 36 points for Kwajalein Swim Team. She placed sixth overall for her age group. The competition was erce this year with about 90 swimmers participating throughout all age groups. Tropical Storm Bavi caused havoc with the March 15 morning Saipan open water lagoon swim competition, and ultimately, the event was cancelled. The storm hit later that afternoon with winds clocking at over 60 knots. The swimmers were stuck in Saipan two extra days due to cancelled ights. The experience was a good one despite the weather setbacks, and during some down time the team was able to experience the local sites and historic monuments located throughout the island.Fun with math: Kite Day StylePhotos courtesy of Barbara BicanichKwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students in pre-algebra and geometry classes built kites for their third quarter project. Math teacher Carol Hockenberger required students to do a scale drawing and written report on the history of kites while also incorporating information on how kites y. The project culminated Monday with an afternoon of kite ying fun! KHS student Liam Beguhn shows off his kite design from math class. Students designed and built kites for class, and then flew them at the high school field Monday.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 13 Saturday, March 28, 2015 Tropical Storm hits closest to Kwaj in more than 10 yearsTropical storm Bavi was the rst tropical cyclone to come within 300 nautical miles of Kwajalein since Tropical Storm Talas in December 2004. Bavi produced a total of 10.65 inches of rain but did not set any records at Kwajalein; however it was unusual in a number of respects. Tropical cyclones in the western Paci c are unusual in March, with Bavi being the sixth recorded system near Kwajalein in the month since 1944 (four tropical depressions and two tropical storms). Bavi was the rst time in which tropical storm strength winds—sustained wind speeds of at least 39 mph—were recorded at Kwajalein in March since 1944. Bavi did not have a normal tropical storm wind pro le at Kwajalein. Usually, winds start low and increase as the tropical storm approaches, reaching tropical storm strength for 30-45 minutes with a de nitive peak, then decreasing rapidly as the system moves away. Bavi did not do this. Instead, long periods of strong tropical depression winds were measured at Kwajalein, with a few brief bursts to tropical storm levels. While Bavi was not remarkable in its wind pattern at Kwajalein, it had an unusually low pressure. This is important, because the lower the pressure, the more intense the storm. Even though the center of the storm was 97 nautical miles away from Kwaj, the station pressure at the RTS Weather Station dropped to 997.2 millibar shortly after 3 p.m., March 12. This was the third lowest atmospheric pressure recorded at Kwajalein, the lowest being Tropical Storm Zelda in 1991 and the next lowest being Tropical Storm Roy in 1988.Bavi’s DevelopmentA broad, elongated low pressure circulation developed in the southern Marshall Islands on the weekend of March 7-8. This, in conjunction with anomalously high pressure over the central Paci c Ocean, created unusually strong trade winds over the central RMI. These trade winds created ow into the north side of the circulation that triggered a system of thunderstorms and caused heavy rains and a Small Craft Advisory at Kwajalein.An MTSAT-2 Visible Satellite image of Tropical Storm Bavi, taken at 8:01 a.m., March 12.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 13 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 28, 2015 BELOW: A view of Bavi 70 nautical miles southwest of Namu Atoll, taken by the European METOP-A satellite’s Advanced Scatterometer. BELOW: A graph illustrates the considerable drop in atmospheric pressure that occured during the time in which Tropical Storm Bavi passed through the Marshall Islands region. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center began monitoring the RMI circulation March 7 but did not of cially discuss it. Meteorologists there placed changing position xes for the center of circulation over a large geographic area. When JTWC began mentioning the system, they rated its development chances as “low.” At 6 p.m. local time March 10, JTWC raised the chances for development of a tropical cyclone to “medium;” position xes continued to jump greatly, however. As the low pressure center intensi ed, Kwajalein’s winds accelerated. A sustained wind of 39 mph, with a 45 mph gust, was recorded at 12:18 p.m., March 11, but it was only a single event. JTWC changed the position x of the circulation from near Kwajalein to more than 150 nautical miles southeast of Majuro. Bavi began to show spin in visible satellite images after 3 p.m., March 11. RTS Weather Station staff began detecting a rotation signature at extreme range on the station’s Kwajalein Polarmetric radar just before 4 p.m. This rotation was detected more than an hour before JTWC issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert for the storm. Later that evening Bavi tracked westward to Ailinglaplap Atoll, between Jeh and Airok islands. On March 12, Bavi moved from Ailinglaplap Atoll to a point south of Ujae Atoll, with a closest point of approach about 97 nautical miles southwest of Kwajalein. JTWC issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert at 5 p.m. on March 11, but placed the system due south of Majuro, far from the rotation we were already seeing, 159 nautical miles southeast of Kwajalein. A Tropical Storm Warning was never issued for Kwajalein by the National Weather Service of ce in Guam. A pass of the European METOP-A satellite captured winds at the ocean surface with its Advanced Scatterometer sensor when Bavi was 70 nautical miles southwest of Namu Atoll. Tropical storm-strength winds were observed in the northeast quadrant of the storm and to the south of the storm’s center. It is quite unusual to get a satellite pass from this satellite, right where it is needed, when it is needed. By 9 a.m., March 13, Bavi had moved to a location more than 300 nautical miles west of Kwajalein. 5

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 13 Saturday, March 28, 2015 Women’s stories are inextricably woven into the essential fabric of our Nation’s history and the history of our Army. Every March we dedicate ourselves to highlighting these individual and collective stories. We acknowledge the accomplishments and contributions of pioneering women from the past and recognize their impact on the force of today. These trailblazers cleared the road for an Army that will soon see women Soldiers competing for the elite title of Army Ranger, as well as other new opportunities. The contributions and achievements of those who came before have ensured equal access to every available opportunity to succeed in our Army and our Nation. We also recognize all women serving today. They continue to provide us with role models for future generations. Women like Lt. Gen. Flora D. Darpino, the rst woman Judge Advocate General of the Army; Maj. Chrissy Cook, who led her Bradley crew to “Top Gun” status; and Private 1st Class Jessica Jones, one of the rst women Soldiers to graduate from the Artillery Mechanic’s course. These and so many others serve as endless sources of inspiration to us all. As we honor the contributions of women—past, present and future—we encourage our entire Army Family to document these stories and plan commemorative activities that celebrate the women whose stories of leadership and courage are woven into the fabric of our Army, which remains the Strength of the Nation.“Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives”
