Photo by Jordan VinsonU.S. Secretary of the Army John McHugh talked with U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll Command staff, Department of the Army civilians and civilian contractors at a special luncheon on the island installation Thursday. A brief stop on his trek through the Paci c region, the time McHugh spent on Kwajalein gave him a rare opportunity to tour one of the Army’s most far ung installations and get to know the people that live and work on the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command test site. “Suf ce to say, you’re doing important work in an extraordinarily important place,” the secretary told an audience of about 100 individuals. due to marine and land habitat degradation, the harvesting of their eggs, their tendency to become entangled in commercial shing lines and more. The species, like other sea turt les, is known for its long lifespan, which can last up to 80 years, and its highly migratory behavior. Both males and females, for instance, often travel thousands of kilometers during migration cycles to search for food and lay the eggs of future generations.Sec. Army applauds work on USAG-KA


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 17 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 25, 2015 Metal Shop staff save shermen off GaganSMDC command sergeants major visit USAG-KA Two Public Works Metal Shop employees had a hand in saving the lives of three local Marshallese shermen after their small sailboat capsized on the ocean side of the east reef near Gagan. According to a report released to the public this week, Metal Shop employees Tony Jones and Bolton Nenam “heard a strange high-pitched sound” coming from the water as they began working on the outer islet the morning of March 13. The source of the noise, they saw, was a man about 100 yards off shore. With no boats to use on the island, Jones and Nenam threw out a life ring, letting it drift toward the man, and pulled him ashore. “The man was exhausted and could barely speak,” the report indicates. But after some water and a chance to gather himself, he told the men that two others were still in the water and needed help. A quick phone call from Jones to emergency personnel scrambled a helicopter and a police boat from RoiNamur to the area to conduct a search. After spotting a second lone shermen stuck in the water, personnel aboard the helicopter guided rescuers on the police boat to the man’s location, and he was secured. It was Jones and Nenam again who got eyes on the third and nal shermen. Having drifted closer to the island, the man had come within shouting distance. “This man was obviously in much more distress, and the two of them jumped in the water to pull the man to shore,” the report reads. After being reunited on Gagan, the three shermen were transported to Roi-Namur before returning to their homes on Third Island. The initial cause of the men’s ordeal isn’t clear. Having set out on an overnight shing trip on the ocean side of the east reef, their small sailboat’s rudder was ripped off early the previous night after hitting an unknown object. The dainty 5 HP outboard motor they brought with them was no match for rough seas, and the boat eventually capsized. How far from Gagan the three were when they hit the water is unknown, but with their life jackets on, they drifted through the night and ended up being pushed over the east reef with the tide and into the lagoon. There was no sign of land for a long time, but one man nally noticed the lights on the 200-feet towers on Gagan. The best swimmer of the bunch bid farewell to the others and started the long swim to Gagan, and it was he who Jones and Nenam pulled from the water. All three men recovered fully. “Besides some obvious exhaustion and dehydration the men recovered from their ordeal and were very glad Jones and Nenam were there on the island to help them,” the report reads.

Wiggins will assume the duties of the Command Sergeant Major for SMDC/ARSTRAT and will be the senior enlisted advisor to Lt. Gen. David Mann, Commander of SMDC/ARSTRAT. Both Ross and Wiggins received brie ngs and visited mission assets and garrison infrastructure both on RoiNamur and Kwajalein. They also received a host nation brie ng focusing on U.S–RMI relations and visited the island of Ebeye where they had an opportunity to meet the residents and see some of the projects that USAG-KA and the RMI have worked on together. Both Ross and Wiggins departed USAG-KA Monday.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 17 Saturday, April 25, 2015 Earth Day volunteers stash trash on Kwaj About 40 Kwaj residents participated in an Earth Day clean-up event on Kwajalein Monday, lling 20 55-gallon bags with an assortment of plastic and Styrofoam debris found along the windward, ocean-facing side of the island. A tire was also recovered as well as a large mooring line. For event organizer Karen Simas, the event was a good opportunity to get people together to give a little back to both the community and the island itself. “This was great,” she said. “I would like to thank everyone for coming out to help keep the island clean. Thanks also to the Solid Waste team for helping us with the big trash cans we used to dump the trash.” LEFT: Volunteer Kacie Wolverton throws a trash-laden bag into a dumpster during the event Sunday.

See: Atat (triumfetta procumbens) is a low-lying plant native to the Marshall Islands that boasts yellow owers, small fruits covered in spines and broad leaves. Its vines, or stems, reach lengths of up to 10 feet and can be used for a number of things, such as the making of traditional clothing or rope. Atat rope, for instance, is often used to decorate the borders of traditional mats; parts of the plant can also be used to make dye for mats. The plant may sometimes be referred to as “old man’s medicine” and can be mixed with other plants to cure a bad cough. The plant’s broad leaves are also used to heal open wounds and cuts. Kino (phymatosorus grossus) is a type of fern that is native to the Marshall Islands and can grow leaves of up to 36 inches in length. The plant has many traditional uses on the islands. It can be used to make ut (head garlands) and marmar (leis or owered necklaces). It is also used to make decorative lengths of rope that are said to decrease one’s sadness and promote peace. In addition to serving as a type of medicine, when mixed with coconut, it is also sometimes used in a special cooking technique in which chicken, pig, turtle or shark is covered with the fronds and grated coconut.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 17 Saturday, April 25, 2015 USAG-KA Security Manager Mac McGuire talks to CAC holders on Kwajalein about proper operational security practices at a training session last week. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students get their dance on at the annual prom at the MP Room Sunday night. Photo by Jordan VinsonKwaj teens enjoy annual Prom TARP, OPSEC, anti-terrorism training begins on USAG-KA Annual training sessions that address threat assessment, operational security and anti-terrorism are now underway for all Common Access Card holders on U.S. Army GarrisonKwajalein Atoll. The sessions are beginning earlier this year than they did last year to allow for more than enough time for all CAC holders to receive the required training. Session leaders were able to combine all three training requirements into one cohesive session that lasts under two hours. It’s for ef ciency’s sake, said Kwajalein Range Services Security Manager “TC” Cassiday. In addition to the Threat Assessment Reporting Program training that many employees on USAG-KA are familiar with, the anti-terrorism section of the training session takes attendees through everything they need to know regarding anti-terrorism measures on the garrison. Led by Capt. Pamela DeVille, the USAG-KA Provost Marshal, attendees learn information that is vital, both in the event of an attack and in the effort to prevent such attacks. Another newcomer to the employees’ training regimen is a section on Operational Security (OPSEC). Led by the USAG-KA Security team, the section reminds attendees of the ins and outs of proper OPSEC practices, namely two main points: What do you need to protect, and how do you protect it? Even out here in the middle of Paci c, foreign intelligence services are a constant threat, section leader and USAG-KA Security Manager Mac McGuire told attendees last week. “Remember: It’s a lot cheaper for them to steal secrets than build the technology themselves to have similar capabilities,” he said.Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students dressed up and danced the night away at the annual prom Sunday night. Hosted by the school’s junior class, the dance was held at the MP Room and was based on an “Alice in Wonderland” theme. The room was transformed with many creative decorations, and the night even had appearances from the Mad Hatter and Alice herself. The students crowned their royal peers at 9 p.m., and parents were invited to watch. The freshman Lord and Lady were Dash Alfred and Janalynn Reimers; the sophomore Duke and Duchess were Thomas Greene and Colleen Furgeson; the junior Prince and Princess were Ben Tavutavuwale and Allison Hibberts; and the Senior King and Queen were Trey Thomas and Mereille Bishop.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 17 Saturday, April 25, 2015 What is Adult Attention De cit Disorder?Attention de cit hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common childhood brain disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Although unacknowledged for many years, Adult ADHD is becoming widely known throughout the world, particularly since this condition affects millions of individuals. Adult ADHD is a condition that is characterized by dif culty paying attention, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. Although ADHD often goes undiagnosed until later in life, it usually starts in childhood. It is often mistakenly diagnosed as poor behavior until it escalates and becomes uncontrollable and causes dif culty in learning and with relationships. Approximately 8 million adults suffer from Adult ADHD. Although it affects boys more than girls during childhood, ADHD affects both genders more evenly in adulthood. Common ADHD symptoms *Anxiety *Inability to sit still *Dif culty concentrating *Chronic forgetfulness *Impulsiveness *Mood swings *Poor organizational skills *Relationship problems *Employment problems *Depression Individuals suffering from Adult ADHD often experienced dif culty succeeding academically. They may also have had behavior problems in school and may even have been held back a grade as a child. Adults with ADHD often have dif culty maintaining good working relationships and often have driving violations, resulting from their inability to pay attention and maintain focus. It has been said that ADHD may often be linked genetically. Studies also suggest a potential link with environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and alcohol use during pregnancy, and high exposure to lead. Brain injuries may be a factor as well. The idea that re ned sugar causes ADHD or makes symptoms worse is popular, but more research discounts this theory than supports it. Likewise, food additives have been discussed; however, no research shows that arti cial food coloring causes ADHD. Like children, adults who suspect they have ADHD should be evaluated by a licensed mental health professional. To be diagnosed with Adult ADHD, an adult must have ADHD symptoms that began in childhood and continued throughout adulthood. Health professionals use certain rating scales to determine if an adult meets the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. The mental health professional will also look at the person’s history of childhood behavior and school experiences. For some adults, a diagnosis of ADHD can bring a sense of relief. Adults who have had the disorder since childhood, but who have not been diagnosed, may have developed negative feelings about themselves over the years. Receiving a diagnosis allows them to understand the reasons for their problems, and treatment will allow them to deal with their problems more effectively. How ADHD is treated in adults ADHD medications, including extended release forms, often are prescribed for adult ADHD. Although not FDA-approved speci cally for the treatment of ADHD, antidepressants are sometimes used to treat adults with ADHD. The antidepressant bupropion (Wellbutrin), which affects the brain chemical dopamine, showed bene ts for adults. Older antidepressants, called tricyclics, sometimes are used because they affect the brain chemical norepinephrine Adult prescriptions for stimulants and other medications require special considerations. For example, adults often require other medications for physical problems, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or for anxiety and depression. Some of these medications may interact badly with stimulants. An adult with ADHD should discuss, in an open and honest dialogue with his or her doctor, the complete medical history to include all current medication prescriptions. In addition to medications, education and psychotherapy is offered. An adult with ADHD can learn how to organize his or her life with tools such as a large calendar and date book, lists, reminder notes, and by assigning a special place for keys, bills and paperwork. Large tasks can be broken down into smaller, more manageable steps so that completing each part of the task provides a sense of accomplishment. Psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy, also can help change one’s poor self-image by examining the experiences that produced it. The therapist encourages the adult with ADHD to adjust to the life changes that come with treatment, such as thinking before acting, or resisting the urge to take unnecessary risks. ADHD can sometimes make social situations challenging. For example, you may sometimes blurt out things without thinking rst, or have trouble keeping up with conversations. Tips that may help you in social settings *Before speaking or acting, pause for 10 seconds to make sure that what you want to say or do is a good idea. *Practice “active listening:” pay very close attention to what others are saying before you join the conversation.

9The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 56 Number 17 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 25, 2015 Photos by Jordan VinsonTips that may help at your workplace *Use earphones, soothing music or other sounds to drown out of ce noises. *Work in uncluttered space, where distractions are few. *Send phone calls directly to voice mail, and respond to them at the same time every day. *Write down ideas in a notebook to avoid interruption of the task you are currently doing. *Keep a list of ideas that you get during meetings so that you can talk about them more effectively. *Perform one task at a time. Do not start a new task until the present one is completed. Working with ADHD – Organization and Planning *Use a tape recorder to take notes at meetings. *Write checklists for complex tasks. *Use memory triggers such as a bulletin board or a reminder list on your computer for announcements. *Learn how to use a day planner to help you keep track of tasks and events (can be computerized) *Write notes on sticky pads and put them where you can easily see them. Working with ADHD – Time Management *Use time line charts to break down large projects into more manageable smaller parts, with due dates. *Reward yourself for achieving due date goals. *Use watches with alarms or buzzers, daily planners, or computer software with alerts or reminders. *Program your computer to beep 5 minutes before every meeting on your calendar *Avoid over-scheduling the day by blocking out more time than you think each task or meeting will take. No matter how you feel, the challenges are beatable with education, support and with a little creativity you can learn to manage the symptoms. Look at ADHD esse ntially as a chemical problem in the management system of the brain. The brain isn’t damaged; it works well under its own set of rules. And just to let you know, most people with ADHD have a signi cantly higher than average IQ. In addition to the above, exercise and eat right and get plenty of sleep. Most of the time, doctors can diagnose a child or adult with ADHD simply by observing his or her behavior in the of ce and by asking parents or spouses to describe his or her attention or behavior problems, such as when they started, where they occur and so on. But sometimes doctors have trouble making a de nite ADHD diagnosis. When diagnosis is dif cult, the usual approach is to order one or more additional standard diagnostic tests – notably a technique known as a single photon emission computed tomography and a quantitative electroencephalography, which measure brain wave activity. These techniques show which brain regions are metabolically active (“hot”) and which are quiescent (“cold”) when an individual completes various tasks. SPECT adds to the richness of the diagnosis and helps target treatment. If you suspect ADHD and would like to investigate further, please contact the EAP at 5362.

ADHD, from page 8 Boy Scouts grow green thumbs Boy Scouts from Kwajalein-based Troop 314 got their hands dirty, digging up and transplanting trees Wednesday. Part of the troop’s effort to celebrate Earth Day with real, active efforts on the ground, the Scouts have been digging up saplings at the Marshallese Cultural Center and the Public Garden and planting them at new locations across Kwajalein. Some destinations have been the area near the island’s dog park and locations farther north toward Emon Beach. The Scouts had been at it during the past two weekends, tackling a total of 41 small trees. The effort culminated on Earth Day Wednesday when four Scouts and their leader Glen McClellan dug up the nal 11 trees and planted them near the tennis courts and the dog park. The work the Scouts did transplanting all those plumeria, utilomar, tropical almond trees and more goes toward not only their organization’s community service goals—a core component of the group’s identity—but also to the KRS Environmental Department’s ongoing effort to plant one tree for every tree that is cut down on the installation. They have a lot of pride in the work they’ve done, McClellan said. “Back in the States it is common to see a whole classroom of kids get together and plant a tree [for Earth Day] and planting just one tree can be a lot of work,” he said. “The Boy Scouts are proud to have planted 52.” TOP: Travis Ropella, left, and Tyler Waite fill in a hole vacated by a small sapling. BOTTOM: Aiden Mitchell, middle, and Xander Waite work with Scout leader Glen McClellan, left, to wrestle a tree out of the ground without breaking its roots. The Scouts will spend the following couple of weeks watering the transplanted trees and ensuring they take well to their new locations. Other parties who helped out with the project were Richard Clearman and Jane Abston.
