About Kwajalein

Kwajalein Atoll is part of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). The southernmost and largest island in the atoll is named Kwajalein Island, which its majority English-speaking residents (about 1000 mostly U.S. military personnel) often call by the shortened name, Kwaj /ˈkwɑːdʒ/. 13,500 Marshall Islanders live on the rest of the atoll, mostly on Ebeye Island. The total land area of the atoll amounts to just over 16 square miles (41 km). TT_horizontal_Big
