Description:The many islands of the Kwajalein Atoll were once home to several thousand Pacific Islanders. For three decades, the US used the atoll as a test range for ballistic missiles. The Islanders were relocated to a small island, barely one-tenth of a square mile. Their traditional way of life virtually destroyed, the Islanders face an alarmingly high incidence of alcoholism and suicide.
