New technology provides more realistic training Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


embers of the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron and the 86th Medical Group participated in medical training with new mannequins May 30 on Ramstein. The new mannequins offer first responders a wider variety of training because they speak, lose blood and can move. The training gave security forces members the ability to practice life-saving techniques and gave medics the opportunity to train in a realistic combat situation. “We simulated a convoy style (improvised exploAirman 1st Class Scott Dillon, 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron patrolman, provides security during a training exercise May 30 on Ramstein.

Pallets containing more than 4,000 pounds of water are air dropped onto the Bunker Drop Zone in Grafenwöhr during an aerial supply delivery May 23. Soldiers with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 5th Quartermaster Detachment and 16th Sustainment Brigade joined to conduct the aerial supply training in order to be better prepared to conduct real-world operations in a forward area.

GRAFENWÖHR, Germany — Soldiers with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 5th Quartermaster Detachment and 16th Sustainment Brigade joined to conduct aerial supply delivery training during an operation at the Bunker Drop Zone here May 23. More than 12,000 pounds of water, which is used to simulate the weight of any supply item that can be dropped in a real-world scenario, was parachuted onto the drop zone on five separate pallets. “This is as close as we can get to getting downrange and doing this at a forward operation area,” said Chief Warrant Officer Brian Martin, an air drops system technician with the 16th Sustainment Brigade. “If we were See OPERATION, Page 9

Farewell and Godspeed by Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde 86th Airlift Wing commander As Jodie and I prepare to depart Germany and the 86th Airlift Wing family, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to Team Ramstein, the Kaiserslautern Military Community and our host nation partners and give our heartfelt thanks to the Airmen of the Biggest, Baddest and Best wing in U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa! We are privileged to have served with each of you in the cause of freedom. Our Air Force is amazing! Our technology is awesome, and our ability to deliver combat power is unmatched; but our strength, our asymmetric advantage, is the incredibly talented Airmen — officer, enlisted, civilian and local national — who serve in a time of war. You have answered every challenge. You have exceeded every expectation. Your innovation, capability and commitment to service rank you among the greatest generations to stand in defense of our great republic and the values we share with our NATO allies.

It has been a great honor to serve with the warriors of the 86th AW. You provided combat airlift and operated the Air Force’s premier installation, enabling and assuring strategic capabilities for the United States and our NATO alliance. Despite a tremendous tempo, you delivered sustained war-fighting readiness, developed professional Airmen, provided exceptional quality of life for the KMC and embraced continuous improvement — all with a touch of class! The KMC supports the largest concentration of Americans outside the United States. Our community has never been stronger thanks to the joint partnership with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, led by Maj. Gen. Aundre Piggee, and U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, led by Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom. Joint begins with relationships, and it was a pleasure to serve with you and our Army partners. Partnerships require teamwork. Thank you to the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing, the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing and the hundreds of installation partners for your commitment to mission and war-fighting excellence.

Brig. Gen. (select) John Shapland and Col. Randall Reed, thank you for the leadership, high standards, and love for our Airmen and their families. We have enjoyed more than 60 years with our German partners and hosts. I am optimistic about the future and believe the U.S Air Force will celebrate another 60 years in RheinlandPfalz. I have this confidence because of our shared values and commitment to stand for right in a dangerous world. I am confident because the diversity and cultural richness we experience as neighbors make us better human beings. Finally, I am confident because of the warmth, hospitality and generosity of the people of Rheinland-Pfalz. To each of our community leaders, thank you for hosting the U.S. Air Force, our Airmen and the thousands of families who call you, friends and neighbors, and your villages, home. Our family has been blessed by your friendship and hospitality. It has been an honor to serve as part of the 86th AW and with our partners in the KMC and Rheinland-Pfalz. May God bless you and keep you until we meet again.


The art of followership by Lt. Col. Jarrett Purdue 86th Civil Engineer Squadron commander Numerous essays have been written on leadership, including many featured in this corner of the KA over the years. Much less, however, is written about followership. I firmly believe good followership to be just as important as good leadership. We are all leaders at one level or another, and we are all followers as well. When we accept and perform our roles as both leaders and followers, our team achieves far more than the sum of its parts. To briefly cover the leadership piece: I believe a leader’s job is really to set the conditions necessary for his or her subordinates to

excel. That means providing broad direction, setting goals and organizing a unit to best meet those goals. It means establishing standards of performance and discipline, and enforcing those standards. It means providing subordinates with the tools they need to do their missions, whether it’s funding, equipment, training, vehicles or proper work space. It means providing feedback to grow on and being a mentor. These principles apply to leaders at all levels – from commanders down to first-line supervisors, military and civilian. But we all must be good followers as well. One of the more prolific writers on Air Force issues, retired Col. Phillip Meilinger, wrote an article published in “Military Review” in 1994 that presents a great sum-

mation of what followership is all about. It’s called “The Ten Rules of Good Followership.” For brevity’s sake, I’ll present just three of the “rules” for followers that have hit home the most in my career: show initiative, do your homework and fix problems as they occur. Initiative is critical in our Air Force. One of the things that sets us apart from many other professional militaries in the world is that we empower our junior NCOs and officers with tremendous decisionmaking authority. As Airmen we believe in decentralized execution, and this isn’t something you should just read about in school. This means those leaders and followers right in the line of fire must be afforded the latitude to best determine how to accomplish the mis-

sion. A leader’s job is to provide his subordinates the tools they need to do their job, then let them go do it. Followers, though, can’t “go do it” unless they take the initiative. There are limits to what any of us can do unilaterally, of course. The leader’s job is to set and enforce those limits, but the follower’s job is to get creative and do what’s required within those limits to get the job done. We need our NCOs and junior officers to make decisions and act on issues within their functions. Without that initiative, we’ll just be sitting around waiting for someone to start micromanaging, and no one wants that.

AFSO21 at work; 86th LRS reduces IEE spending by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein’s 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron Individual Equipment Element put Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century to work on reducing unnecessary expenditures. The AFSO21 program is a tool for the Air Force to improve on its processes and increase global readiness. To improve distribution of necessary equipment to deployers and first term Airmen, the IEE and procedures in place were reworked. “IEE needed a reduction in redundancies,” said Senior Master Sgt. Michael Latimer, 86th LRS chief of materiel management flight. “We are enacting a system where our customer service handles equipment requests and provides improved accountability of gear issued.” Having unit deployment managers purchasing equipment on government purchase was an issue the IEE faced, alongside excessive spending.

“I can see a definite cut back on spending after eliminating excess issuing of gear already in possession of a deployer,” said Master Sgt. Kimberly Waters, NCOIC of customer service. “We would issue gear that the deployer already had in operational condition. It was unnecessary and we aim to put an end to that.” Previously, the issuing system in place had the IEE issuing a set number of equipment every time

86 AW Innovator of the Month

INNOVATOR: Airman 1st Class Robert Ruiz UNIT: 86th Operations Support Squadron

ACTION: Ruiz researched and solved an aircrew Night Vision Goggle battery life problem. The lithium batteries in the NVGs arrived from supply at 40 percent capacity. As a result, 41 C-130J flights experienced low power or dead batteries in their NVGs. Ruiz researched the use of low profile battery packs, which utilized AA batteries. He ordered the equipment and outfitted 85 NVG kits, saving $40,000 in yearly replacement costs and improved aircrew’s ability to perform night operations. Ruiz has expanded and reinforced a culture of continuous improvement and reduced demand on limited resources. His ingenuity and ability to identify and solve problems is nothing short of extraordinary.

an Airman deployed. If that Airman deployed frequently and required a gear issue they would be given a predetermined amount of gear, even if they already possessed the same functional piece. It’s not uncommon to have a closet full of gear that was issued but never used, Latimer said. “This will allow better accountability of gear we have issued and gear that needs replacing,” said Staff Sgt. Jocoby Jenkins, 86th LRS IEE NCOIC. “The IEE shop will actually be closed down and reorganized for customer service to take over, continue better accountability and hopefully prevent UDMs from having to purchase equipment on a GPC.” The five key goals of this AFSO21 program were to increase productivity of the people, increase critical equipment availability rates, improve response time and agility, sustain safe and reliable operations, and improve energy efficiency. The 86th LRS IEE can be contacted at 480-2449 during duty hours and at 478-9080 after duty hours.

Jose Loureiro, 86th MDG NCOIC of education and training. “We wanted to get as many people together to benefit from this training. It’s good to get the hands-on training.” Completing this training gave participants an opportunity to complete an annual training requirement as well. “This scenario gave us another chance to do our self-aid buddy care training,” said Senior Airman James Hensley, 569th USFPS patrolman. “The training was extremely realistic. The mannequin would shake or talk when you put a tourniquet on, but that’s how we knew it was alive.” The scenario allowed Airmen who

Kaiserslautern American normally don’t get to train together an opportunity to learn how other units operate. “Now that we have the simulation technology, doing joint training will be easier,” Loureiro said. “We had medics who haven’t had the opportunity to be involved in a realistic combat training exercise or the chance to get out there and see what it’s like to be under simulated live fire. We’re building partnerships and we’re learning how other units complete their mission.” With the new technology, the mannequins are less likely to be damaged due to weather. “The dummies can be utilized in mud or rain; they’re designed for this kind of weather and terrain,” Loureiro said. “We have control over them. Some can breathe, have arterial bleeds, talk and move. They give members a sense of urgency during their training.”

The lifelike nature of the mannequins adds another more realistic element to the training. “Having this type of training prepares the responders before they

deploy,” Loureiro said. “They are already used to seeing the bleeding, so they won’t be taken by surprise when they encounter these scenarios during combat operations.”

Obama: Nation pours resources into mental health care for vets by Cheryl Pellerin American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — The Veterans Affairs Department is improving access for veterans to mental health services, President Barack Obama said Tuesday in remarks that opened the National Conference on Mental Health. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are hosting the conference at the White House as part of the administration’s effort to increase understanding of and awareness about mental health and reduce the associated stigma. Obama delivered opening remarks, and Biden will deliver closing remarks at the conference later Tuesday. “We’re ... doing more to support our troops and our veterans who are suffering from things like traumatic brain injury or PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder,” the president told the audience. “Today, we lose 22 veterans a day to suicide — 22. We’ve got to do a better job ... of preventing these all-too-often silent tragedies. That’s why we’ve poured an enormous amount of resources into high-

quality care and better treatment for our troops.” In response to a presidential executive order, VA has hired 1,600 mental health providers and more than 300 peer-to-peer veteran specialists, according to a White House statement. The department also has enhanced the capacity of its crisis line by 50 percent and established 24 pilot projects in nine states where VA is partnering with community mental-health providers to help veterans more quickly access mental health services, the statement said. Joining the president on stage at the conference were Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, among others. The president said VA is directing 151 of its health care centers nationwide to conduct mental health summits with community partners, which include local government officials, community-based organizations and veteran service organizations. The summits will be held from July 1 through Sept. 15 and will

“We wanted to bring together folks who’ve suffered from mental illness and families who supported them. We wanted to bring together advocates and educators, faith leaders, veterans, local officials — all of you have shown an extraordinary commitment to what is a critical goal, and that is to make sure that people aren’t suffering in silence.”” — President Barack Obama

identify and link community-based resources to support the mental health needs of veterans and their families and increase awareness of VA programs and services, he explained. “They’re going to hold more than 150 summits like this one in communities all across the country so that every one of our service members and veterans understand (that) just like you take care of yourselves and each other on the battlefield, you’ve got to do the same off the battlefield,” Obama said. “That’s part of being strong.” Conference attendees are people from across the country — mental health advocates, educators, veterans, health care providers, faith leaders, members of Congress, representatives from local governments and individuals who have struggled with mental health problems. Today, they are discussing how they can work together to reduce stigma and help millions of Americans struggling with mental health problems recognize the importance of reaching out for assistance. Obama said there should be no shame in discussing or seeking help for treatable illnesses that affect too many people. “We see it in veterans who come home from the battlefield with the invisible wounds of war, but who feel somehow that seeking treatment is a sign of weakness when, in fact, it’s a sign of strength,” he added. As part of the effort, the administration today launched http:// mentalhealth.gov, a consumer-friendly website with tools that help users

The website includes a series of videos featuring celebrities and other Americans whose lives have been touched by mental illness. In November 2011, VA launched an award-winning, national public awareness campaign called “Make the Connection,” which is aimed at reducing the stigma associated with seeking mental health care and telling veterans, their families, friends and members of their communities about VA resources. “We wanted to bring together folks who’ve suffered from mental illness and families who supported them,” the president said at Tuesday’s conference. “We wanted to bring together advocates and educators, faith leaders, veterans, local officials — all of you have shown an extraordinary commitment to what is a critical goal, and that is to make sure that people aren’t suffering in silence.”

AFSO21 implemented in deployment health assessments by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A team of Airmen from the 86th Aerospace Medical Squadron used the Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century program to take a closer look and improve processes in the deployment health assessment area. The AFSO21 program is a tool used by the Air Force to increase global readiness and improve processes. “We wanted to take a closer look at the deployment health assessment process because we noticed that there were redundancies and things that needed to be changed,” said Staff Sgt. Ninos Chamoun, 86th AMDS NCOIC of preventative health section. Deployers have to complete a total of five health assessments before and after a deployment. After taking a look at the process, the Airmen noticed that the third, fourth and fifth health assessments’ numbers had been lacking in completion. “Ramstein deploys, on average, 2,000 people per year,” Chamoun said. “Everyone completes a questionnaire before they deploy. There is a 90 percent completion rate for the first and second health assessments. The third, fourth and fifth assessments are completed 90 days after returning from a deployment so the numbers drop 50 to 60 percent.” After implementing the new program and making a few changes, Chamoun expects to see great results in getting deployers in for those last few appointments.

Airmen receive a briefing on Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century May 10 on Ramstein. AFSO21 focuses on improving mission capabilities to become more efficient across the Air Force.

In the overall deployment health assessment process, they have eliminated an additional visit to the medical group, Chamoun said. “There are a lot of steps involved when trying to get ready for a deployment. Eliminating just one of them would take some of the stress out of the process and allow you to spend more time with your family,” said Senior Airman Whitney Stork, 86th Airlift

Wing Public Affairs photojournalist, who was getting ready to deploy. It is imperative that deployers understand that the health assessments are completed when needed because it deals directly with their health, Chamoun said. “This is one of the most important things we can do in the medical group. The ultimate mission is to fly, fight and win,” Chamoun said. “When we talk

about a deployer I don’t see any other way they can fly, fight and win without their mental health before they deploy and when they come back.” Ramstein has utilized the AFSO21 program in seven different units on base thus far. If your unit would like to become part of the solution, email the 86th Force Support Squadron at 86fss. fsmidea@us.af.mil.

DOD adds peer support chat sessions for sexual assault victims by the American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — In response to a need for peer support services identified by users of the Defense Department’s Safe Helpline for sexual assault victims, Pentagon officials have launched the Safe HelpRoom, a new service that allows victims to participate in group chat sessions to connect with and support one another in a moderated and secure online environment. The Safe HelpRoom is available at http:// SafeHelpline.org, officials said, noting that the moderator can provide referrals as necessary and will ensure that chat postings adhere to all ground rules. “Survivors of sexual assault have told us that being able to discuss their concerns with peers can provide a level of support not available through other means,” said Jessica L. Wright, acting undersecretary

of defense for personnel and readiness. “Safe HelpRoom is a groundbreaking development in the department’s commitment to support military victims of sexual assault.” Safe HelpRoom sessions will begin immediately and are available twice weekly in two-hour sessions. The session schedule can be found at http://SafeHelpline.org, along with polls to determine session topics to address specific concerns. The Safe HelpRoom and Safe Helpline are administered by the Defense Department and operated by the nonprofit organization Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, the nation’s largest antisexual-violence organization, through a contract with DOD’s sexual assault prevention and response office, known as SAPRO. “Safe HelpRoom was designed with unique safeguards to ensure a safe and welcoming place for survivors to connect,” said Army

Maj. Gen. Gary S. Patton, SAPRO director. “Safe HelpRoom is the first of its kind to require participants to commit to a series of ‘ground rules’ of acceptable behavior before entering a session. Additionally, each participant comment is reviewed to ensure it complies with the ground rules prior to posting for the group to see. Safe HelpRoom provides a secure and private environment for positive and supportive discussions.” When users visit Safe Helpline, the staff provides one-on-one tailored assistance and offers a variety of up-to-date service referrals for resources on and off military bases and installations, officials said in a statement announcing Safe HelpRoom’s launch. Service referrals include information for sexual assault response coordinators, along with legal, medical, mental health, and spiritual military resources. The referral database

also houses information for local civilian and Veterans Affairs Department resources for helpline users seek-

ing information and crisis support away from the military response system, they added.

Westpfalz police celebrate 20th anniversary with open house by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Westpfalz Police Headquarters in Kaiserslautern will sponsor an open house Saturday to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Activities will take place all around the headquarters building on Logenstrasse 5. “We open our doors to display our daily work,” said police president Wolfgang Erfurt. “Ever since 1993, our police is making sure that we all here live in a pretty safe environment.” The open house will start at 9:30 a.m. with an ecumenical worship service. Official speakers in the fest tent will include Lord Mayor Klaus Weichel and Col. Troy Dunn, 86th Mission Support Group commander. Activities will include demonstrations by special task forces at 11:45 a.m., a presentation by the motorcycle division at 12:15 p.m. and a police working dog demonstration at 2 p.m. The 86th Security Forces Squadron and the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron will represent the U.S. military and display some of their vehicles. The U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa band Wings of Dixie will entertain the audience from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Other musical performers include the police orchestra, police choir and the Blue Light Big Band.

Interested visitors can take part in guided tours through the headquarters building, observe show cooking and test their skills at a climbing wall. Children can search for gem stones hidden in a sandbox, drive scooters on a special track and have their faces painted.

A cocktail bar will serve non-alcoholic drinks, and food specialties will range from sweet to spicy. “I’m looking forward to welcoming visitors to our open house and hope everybody will feel comfortable around the police in the Westpfalz,” Erfurt said.

Soldiers compete in international patrolling competition Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs TENERATE, Italy — After slogging overnight for more than 18 hours through 35 kilometers of high, grassy fields, dark and damp woodlands, knee-deep creeks and boot-swallowing mud, three teams of 7th Civil Support Command Soldiers completed the 27th annual “Lombardia 2013” International Patrolling competition here, May 25. The four-man teams from Company A, 457th Civil Affairs Battalion, 361st Civil Affairs Brigade, 7th CSC competed May 24 to 25. A military parade that passed through the center of town was held May 26, as well as an awards ceremony. The three-day event, hosted by the Reserve Officer’s Association of the Italian Army, kicked off May 24 at mid-day with a shooting range competition. Each team member in the competition fired a shotgun, a pistol, a rifle and a sniper rifle from various positions during the timed events. Sgt. Jacob Francis, a civil affairs NCO with Co. A, 457th CA Bn., earned a bronze Italian army marks-

manship badge for his shooting score. In conjunction with the shooting range, the operational order briefs were given to the various teams for that night’s team patrols, which began at 11 p.m. “Eighteen hours is a long night,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jason Rizzi, civil affairs operations, Co. A, 457th CA Bn., before his team moved out around midnight on May 24. “Just focus, (and) build the team dynamic. Just try not to get frustrated with each other.” The patrolling event started with 56 teams — a total of 224 competitors. More than 50 teams completed the extremely long event. Staff Sgt. John Sorich IV, a civil affairs NCO with Co. A, 457th CA Bn., whose dad traveled from the U.S. to watch him compete, said, “It’s a unique experience that you can only get in the Army Reserve in Europe. What other chances are you going to have to do something like this? It’s a really interesting opportunity.” Each nation’s team was made up of either all male, all female or a mix of service members from 10 different countries, including several teams from British universities’ training corps, similar to the U.S. Army’s

The highest finishing U.S. team placed ninth overall. The second U.S. team came in 24th place, while the third U.S. team crossed the finish line with only two team members, as the other two Soldiers were sidelined by injuries out on the course. See COMPETITON, Page 14

86th SFS defenders ready to roll — always by Airman 1st Class Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs “We always keep a bag packed; we don’t have time to settle in. Missions can come up at any second on any given day,” said Senior Airman Nathan Garcia, from the 86th Security Forces Squadron armory. “We have to maintain readiness.” At any given time, defenders with the 86th SFS on deployment status can be tasked to deploy and conduct missions downrange. Before these defenders can

deploy, they must undergo fly-away, security team training where they improve their combative skills and perform tactical baton and verbal judo training. Ultimately, this allows them to ward off hostile threats when securing aircraft. “It’s tough, but really good training that prepares us for a mission. After that, we get a briefing (and) everything we need and head out,” said Airman 1st Class Samantha Birmingham, 86th SFS patrolwoman. The deployed Airmen of the 86th SFS conduct the same operations they carry

out on Ramstein, but they also assist in the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa areas of responsibility. “We are here defending the freedoms of our NATO allies,” said Airman 1st Class Isaiah Hains, 86th SFS patrolman. “Without us, the entire mission and security of the base could be compromised.” When on mission, it can be easy for Airmen to become complacent and lose focus, Hains said. “It’s key for us to utilize and remember the skills we have accumulated during tough training sessions so we don’t fall behind or become

work. If you have a solution to a problem or a better way of doing things, communicate that to your leaders. This means you really need to have worked your proposal through first to make sure it’s solid, because your boss may have to convince his boss, and maybe his boss too, that your idea is a good one. The quality of decisions made by the chain of command is only as good as the quality of information available. The final rule, and this is related to initiative, is to fix problems wherever and whenever they occur. You have heard the adage, “bad news does not improve with age.” Leaders should never get upset with someone bringing them a problem. But that is predicated on their followers doing everything in their power to fix the problem first. Bumping problems on up the line or leaving work for someone else to take care of weakens our units and gets us into jams like failing an inspection or a mission. No leader wants to hear someone say, “that’s not my problem.” Anything that lessens mission performance or weakens your unit is your problem. As a follower, take on those problems and fix them. I firmly believe good followership to be just as important as good leadership. Our established culture of empowered followership is what makes our military, and those of our NATO alliance partners, the most effective, influential and powerful organizations in the world today.

doing a real-world mission, we could rig just about anything from medical supplies to food, water, beans, bullets — whatever we would need.” Resupply is a big part of what they do, said 1st Lt. Christopher Carlstedt, a subsistence and water purification platoon leader with the 16th Sustainment Brigade’s 240th Quartermaster Support Company. “A lot of times downrange, (supplies are) going

a hindrance to the mission,” Hains said. Some of the higher-ranking Airmen on deployment status are tasked with leadership positions that give them an opportunity to take charge. “I take it with pride,” Garcia said. “Being the only senior airman on the team, if anything should happen and there’s no one higher ranking, it’s my responsibility to ensure we accomplish mission objectives.” Most SFS deployment teams consist of 24 Airmen who are selected for these missions because of their skills and visible improve-

to come via air drop, and this training ensures that we are capable of doing that,” he said. Hands on preparation for the aerial supply delivery began a week prior with members of the 5th Quartermasters and 16th Sustainment Brigade rigging the palletized water with parachutes at Rhine Ordnance Barracks in Kaiserslautern in preparation for the drop. Successful operations required accurate communication and logistics between

all units involved in order to be mission ready and capable, Martin said. “We have to make sure we can coexist and everyone gets the proper training,” he said. Both the 16th Sustainment Brigade and the 5th Quartermasters conduct joint training on a monthly basis in order to be better prepared to conduct successful operations on the battlefield. “Obviously, we don’t have the advantage of being in Afghanistan with the ter-

ments during training. “Most of us are handpicked. It makes us feel like we really did our part to make ourselves stand out and show that we can take on all the responsibilities of a deployment,” Birmingham said. “If you get a deployment, you have to give it everything you’ve got and don’t take anything for granted.” Defenders of the 86th SFS continue to maintain their readiness through their hard work and efforts in protecting the lives of not only members of the KMC, but lives of our NATO partners as well. rain or hostile environment, but we do have the capability,” Martin said. “As you do this, your muscle memory kicks in so that when you are in that hostile environment or in that forward support area, you will be able to conduct the mission as you did in the rear.” “I think the more people that can get exposed to this and if we can get more training like this, it definitely sets up for better success for when we get downrange,” Carlstedt added.

Chaplains: Taking care of Airmen by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Being in charge of the morale, well-being and spiritual fitness of Airmen, dependents and civilians is the No. 1 mission of a chaplain. “We all have issues in our life. We can go from being on a mountain to being in a valley in seconds,” said Chaplain (Maj.) Raymond Moncrief, 86th Airlift Wing chaplain. “Everyone needs to know that they can talk to the chaplain because of our 100 percent confidentiality. We are here for the well-being of our Airmen and their families.” With 12 chaplains in the 86th AW, there are a variety of religions being represented, which enables them to take care of an individual’s specific spiritual needs. Even if someone isn’t religious, they can still talk to a chaplain. “We have Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Protestant and Catholic chaplains,” Moncrief said. “If we have someone come in with a religion that we don’t have a chaplain for, we find someone in the surrounding area who can assist them with their needs.”

Each chaplain has a unit in the 86th AW to ensure that a particular unit has all the tools needed to do their job and stay spiritually fit to fight. “It is important that all of us chaplains work hand-inhand to make sure our people are taken care of. It’s our No. 1 priority,” Moncrief said. “We take care of the living and we take care of the dead, but overall we are here to take care of our capital A Airmen.” If someone has an issue regarding work related things, the unit chaplain cannot take care of the issue, however, that shouldn’t prevent someone from being able to talk to a chaplain they feel comfortable with. “As unit chaplains, we walk through our units, sometimes bringing doughnuts or other goodies, to check in on our Airmen,” Moncrief said. “We know what is going on in the unit and have a direct line to be able to talk to unit commanders.” There are many ways someone can get a hold of a chaplain to talk. If it is during duty hours the Northside Chapel has someone answering phones at all times. That person will take the phone call and get a hold of the correct chaplain for that person’s needs.

“Being able to talk to a chaplain at the drop of a hat is incredibly important,” said Senior Airman Richard Moore, 86th Communications Squadron. “It’s really comforting to know that someone is there for you day or night.”

If someone needs to talk to a chaplain after duty hours, there is a chaplain on-call for emergencies. To get a hold of the on-call chaplain, call the command post and they will connect you with the on-call chaplain.

If in need of the chaplain’s services, contact the Northside Chapel at 480-6148 or 06371476148 during duty hours. After duty hours, contact the command post and they will connect you to the on-call chaplain.

Leaders urge care in changing commanders’ UCMJ responsibilities by Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — Commanders must be a part of any solution to the crisis of sexual assault in the military, service leaders told the Senate Armed Services Committee today. Commanders are responsible not only for the health and welfare of those in their commands, but also for good order and discipline, they emphasized. Some legislative proposals before Congress would take away commanders’ responsibilities under the Uniform Code of Military Justice for sexual assault crimes. Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the service chiefs agreed that commanders have an important role to play in changing the culture that allows sexual assaults in the military.

Dempsey told the senators that he welcomes their input and will work closely with them. “As we consider further reforms, the role of the commander should remain central,” he said. “Our goal should be to hold commanders more accountable, not render them less able to help us correct the crisis.” Each commander — no matter the service — has the responsibility to preserve order and discipline, the chairman told the senators. This, he said, is essential to bringing about change. “(Commanders) punish criminals and they protect victims when and where no other jurisdiction is capable of doing so, or lawfully able to do so,” he said. “Commanders are accountable for all that goes on in a unit, and ultimately, they are responSee UCMJ, Page 19

86th AMDS protects KMC from biohazards Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Dymekre Allen 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Aerospace Medical Squadron’s bioenvironmental engineering flight works to provide better health and wellness to members here by performing risk assessment tests for facilities and planning documents for chemical, physical, and biological stress factors which may cause illness to ensure a healthy work environment. The 86th AMDS conducts inspections on a number of facilities on base. They take water samples on a weekly basis, ensure confined spaces have the correct oxygen levels, prevent hazardous noise, take air samples and conduct surveys to test for radiation. They do these tests to ensure there are not high levels of chemical, radiological or biological contaminates polluting the environment or becoming a problem for members of the KMC. “We analyze occupational health hazards and maintain longitudinal exposure records,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Fitzgibbons, 86th AMDS bioenvironmental engineering technician. “It’s extremely

important that we provide a high level of confidence in the protection we provide to the KMC population.” The bioenvironmental engineering technicians go to technical training for three and a half months to train for real-world situations that could arise. Their training consists of exercises that teaches them how to handle and dispose of hazardous wastes and how to properly clean chemical spills. “Our training is serious,” said Airman 1st Class Eric Roberts, 86th AMDS bioenvironmental engineering technician. “It’s ideal since we do a lot of work with occupational health, and we always need to be prepared for any situation.” If an area is deemed hazardous, bioenvironmental engineering technicians recommend a solution, ranging from changing the process to implementing workplace controls. “Keeping all the workers safe — if we can accomplish this, we can continue the mission in an efficient manner,” Roberts said. Ramstein’s bioenvironmental engineering flight has the same safety procedures as any base in the states with one addition, they must comply with the host nation requirements to make

sure their codes and standards are met as well. Keeping the KMC safe is a major priority, however, Airmen from the bioenvironmental engineering flight have another long-term goal in mind when they come to work every day. Our efforts in helping keep KMC

Dual ceremony marks new LRMC commander, command sergeant major by Chuck Roberts Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs In a dual ceremony, Col. Judith Lee assumed command of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center while Command Sgt. Maj. Timothy Sprunger assumed his role as the new LRMC command sergeant major. The May 29 change of command and change of responsibility ceremonies also honored the services of outgoing Commander Col. Barbara Holcomb and Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Gragg. During her remarks, Holcomb told Lee and Sprunger that she and Gragg were “passing the baton to you a little reluctantly, only because this is the best job in the Army. You are inheriting a fabulous team who will give its best every day. I know you will take care of them. Best wishes to you as you embark on your journey.” Gragg told the hospital staff that it was “truly an honor and a privilege to have stood shoulder to shoulder among them … We are Landstuhl. There is power in that name and there is power in you as an organization.” Gragg said the experience has affected him, just as it has all those who have preceded him at LRMC. “Landstuhl changes people,” he said. “I have changed, and I have changed for the better because of you.”

Assuming command of the largest U.S. hospital outside the U.S. was not something Lee said she foresaw in her future when she joined the Army in 1986. The new commander said it was a “true honor and privilege” to have been selected to command Landstuhl. “I will serve you 110 percent, and I will continue with the mission and vision here,” she said. Holcomb moves on to become the command surgeon for U.S. Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C. Holcomb’s mission will be to prepare conventional forces to provide a sustained flow of trained and ready land power to combatant commanders in defense of the nation at home and abroad. Gragg will be the command sergeant major for the 32nd Medical Brigade at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Gragg’s mission will be to provide command, logistical and operational support to safely and effectively train and qualify technically and tactically skilled warrior medics and leaders who embody the warrior ethos and live the Army values. LRMC is the largest American hospital outside of the U.S. LRMC provides primary care, tertiary care, hospitalization and treatment for approximately 218,000 U.S. military personnel and their families within European Command. LRMC is also the evacuation and treatment center for all injured U.S. service members and civilians serving in Afghanistan.

Vice chief of staff: Every Dollar Counts campaign a success WASHINGTON — Throughout the month of May, Airmen submitted more than 11,000 costreducing ideas during the “Every Dollar Counts” campaign, an initiative that empowered Airmen to find and recommend areas of savings that may be used to support more urgent readiness needs. In a letter to all Airmen, June 5, Air Force Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Larry Spencer highlighted the great ideas Airmen submitted and also encouraged Airmen to continue looking for innovative ways to save Air Force resources. Below is his letter. Fellow Airmen, Thank you! We asked for your help to find more cost effective ways to deliver airpower and you delivered — big time! The response during the “Airmen Powered by Innovation Call” generated 11,000-plus ideas in just 30 days! Now the ball is in our court to quickly assess the ideas and implement those that show the most promise — several of which have been implemented already! To provide a recap of what we received, most of the ideas, 38 percent, affect personnel policy, 23 percent involved logistics and installation support and 11 percent recommended changes in information technology. Next, in order of the most suggestions, were current operations, financial management, health services and acquisition. Recommended changes in personnel ranged from eliminating enlisted performance reports for chief master sergeants, (we’re giving that serious scrutiny now) to suggesting Airmen remain at permanent change of station locations longer. In the logistics area, many of you suggested creative ways to save energy, and Airmen at Joint Base Andrews, Md., suggested transitioning to lower-cost, leased vehicles for visiting distinguished visitors, which we implemented this week. We also received several suggestions to limit the number and use of portable mobile devices. Again, we extend our personal thanks for your enthusiastic support of our Air Force. As ideas are approved and implemented, I will continue to share them. In the meantime, I want to share some stories I have received about some of the amazing initiatives our Airmen are undertaking out in the field. In a cost savings effort, Airmen at Homestead Air Reserve Base, Fla., are sharing training facilities and conducting joint exercises between the base fire department and Miami-Dade, Broward, Charlotte and Lee counties. The joint exercises save a cumula-

tive total of approximately $500,000 a year. Additionally, the 482nd Communications Squadron at Homestead AFB developed a procedure to audit their telecommunications bills for discrepancies. This effort ensured they were being charged correctly for services and constituted a total of $400,000 in savings. Sometimes change happens because Airmen believe there might be a better way to get the job done, and that’s what happened at Columbus Air Force Base, Miss. The 50th Flying Training Squadron transitioned to a centralized scheduling operation where all instructors were pooled together, maximizing their ability to fill the schedule while giving back hours each day to the flight commanders and flight schedulers. With this fairly drastic change in how they did business, they were able to fill their flying schedule and reduce their flying window by one hour. Although it is hard to quantify the specific savings generated from the change, the new system allows pilots to work more efficiently and take better advantage of their time and resources. Then, there are superstars like Stacy Burgess from the 97th Comptroller Squadron at Altus Air Force Base, Okla. Stacy realized that many mandatory deployment items could be returned to the unit deployment manager and reissued to others who are deploying. The cost for required items prior to this policy was $2,892.64 per member; by reissuing many of the required items from returned inventory, the cost for new purchases was significantly decreased to $1,498.67 per Airman. On average, Altus deploys 188-236 individuals per year. This new policy has the potential to save the base and the Air Force approximately $50,000 to $100,000 per year. Our job as a headquarters is to share great ideas like Stacy’s with every base around the world — think of the savings! Air Mobility Command’s Theater Express program is also a praiseworthy example of how a team can achieve significant cost savings. Aided by a decrease in overall airlift demand and the implementation of a more robust software tool, the Air Mobility Division team was able to more accurately estimate military airlift costs. This allowed them to increase the amount of cargo transported by regularly scheduled military aircraft resulting in a $342 million savings this year. Also, for the first time in AMC’s history, the AMC commander held a commander’s conference using Defense Connect On-Line and milBook. Both tools allowed approxi-

mately 250 people to participate in a fully interactive conference without the associated TDY costs. While you were submitting your innovative proposals, I had a small team examining our current idea programs. Their task focused on four areas: consolidating and streamlining the processes, decreasing the cycle time from submission to approval, increasing the effectiveness of harvesting ideas that generate tangible savings and increasing replication of approved ideas across multiple locations. Early progress updates indicate a promising new innovation idea process that will be more responsive to submitters and is expected to generate a higher percentage of approved and implemented concepts. This effort will result in a revamped Innovative Development through Employee Awareness and Productivity Enhancing Capital Investment program. We will continue accepting your outstanding suggestions for improving our force but will take a 30-day pause on processing ideas while the team prepares to stand up the new capability. In the interim, ideas can be submitted online at https:// ipds.randolph.af.mil. I encourage you to keep thinking about how we can accomplish our mission faster, better and cheaper. Today’s fiscal constraints are the tightest our Air Force has experienced in many years. Your overwhelming response during the Airmen Powered by Innovation Call for Ideas has emboldened us all with confidence that our Air Force will persevere through these tough times and emerge a more effective and efficient fighting force for America.

sible for the success of the missions assigned to them.” Being responsible for “good order and discipline” is unique to the military. This is why, for example, that ship captains — even those not near the bridge — often lose their jobs when the craft runs aground. Commanders are responsible for setting command climates, and in that role are responsible for changing the culture, the military leaders said. Commanders use the military justice system as a tool to quickly and visibly punish those who commit crimes, deter others from committing crimes, and protect victims. Nonjudicial administrative punishment — known as “Article 15s” in military parlance for the UCMJ article that authorizes it — is one example of the accountability process that is unique to the military. Taking commanders out of this loop takes that tool from their hands, the military leaders told the senators. Being a commander, of course, entails much more than simply threatening an Article 15, Dempsey said. “Commanders and leaders of every rank must earn that trust and therefore engender trust in their units,” he said. “Most do. Most do not allow unit cohesion to mask an undercurrent of betrayal. Most rise to the challenge of leadership every day, even under the most demanding, physical and moral circumstances.” The service chiefs were equally adamant

“Commanding officers are charged with establishing and training to standards and uniformly enforcing those standards. A unit will rise or fall as a direct result of the leadership of its commanding officer.” — Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James F. Amos that commanders must be part of the solution. “If I believed that removing commanders from their central role of responsibility in addressing sexual assault would solve the crimes within our ranks, I would be your strongest proponent,” Gen. Ray Odierno, Army chief of staff, said. “But ... making commanders less responsible and less accountable will not work,” he added. “It will undermine the readiness of the force. It will inhibit our commanders’ ability to shape the climate and discipline of our units, and most importantly, it will hamper the timely delivery of justice to the very people we wish to help: the victims and survivors of these horrific crimes.” Eliminating sexual assault requires the involvement of leaders and commanders, the chief of naval operations told the senators. “It is assuredly a leadership issue and fundamentally embedded in what we call the ‘charge of command,’” said Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert. “The commanding officer is responsible and

accountable for everything that happens in his or her ship, squadron or unit. And we expect our commanders to create a safe environment, founded on dignity and respect, one that reinforces our core values of honor, courage and commitment.” Successful and long-term changes in the military come about only when commanders are involved, the admiral said. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the committee that commanding officers are the centerpiece of the Marine Corps’ effectiveness as a professional and disciplined warfighting organization. “Commanding officers are charged with establishing and training to standards and uniformly enforcing those standards,” he said. “A unit will rise or fall as a direct result of the leadership of its commanding officer.” They never delegate responsibility, he added, and “they should never be forced to delegate their authority.” As Congress considers changes to the commander’s authority under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Amos said, “I plead with you to do it sensibly and responsibly.” The military has made cultural changes before. Until 1948, African-Americans served in segregated units. Until 2011, gay Americans had to serve in secret. “Our force has within it the moral courage to change course and reaffirm our professional ethos,” Dempsey said. “Working together, we can and will restore force within the trust and with the American people.”

PCS season So, it’s almost time to leave Tying the knot overseas Ramstein by Senior Airman Caitlin Guinazu 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Ramstein is preparing once again for PCS season. The PCS process might appear daunting, however, the 786th Force Support Squadron has the capabilities to ensure a smooth departure or arrival. “PCSing into Ramstein has never been easier,” said Dana Doan, 86th Force Support Squadron community readiness consultant. “However, no PCS comes without bumps in the road.” Ensuring a smooth transition is a priority for the technicians who handle arriving and departing Airmen. By making resources available online, the 786th FSS aims to ease the process of moving. “All personnel services delivery guides for PCSing and assignment processing are available online,” said Senior Airman Anthony Acevedo, 786th FSS base relocation technician. “Occasionally, people are unaware of the requirements to successfully PCS. We try to alleviate some of these issues by making the PSDs available on the Ramstein Web page.” Ramstein always comes equipped with an Air Force-named best practice. “We introduced the Ramstein Out Process line to stop those who were PCSing from visiting each agency when possible,” said Master Sgt. Ryan Norton, 786th FSS superintendent of career development. “Before ROP, getting everything done in a timely manner was difficult. We are now bringing the agencies to the people, instead of having members running around base.” There are programs in place to help the process run smoothly, and the 786th FSS wants to remind those who are PCSing that patience is paramount, Acevedo said. “Parts of this process take longer than normal because of where we are located,” Norton said. “Situational awareness and patience make the process easier for all involved.” Many of the first steps can be taken by the person PCSing. “Being proactive is major,” Acevedo said. “When someone PCSs, checking for critical records and necessary suspenses save headaches.” The 786th and the 86th FSS both want PCSs to be as stress free as possible. Military family life consultants and chaplains are available to counsel and listen to frustrations that may develop, Doan said. To contact the 786th FSS for outbound assignments, email 786fss.dpmar@us.af.mil or call 4809898 or 06371-47-9898. Appointment hours are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Walk-in hours are from 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 1 to 3 p.m. Fridays.

Marriage is one of the biggest commitments made in life. It’s a promise to build a life together, to account for another’s needs and start a family. Once the commitment is made, the paperwork shouldn’t be the thing that keeps someone from taking the big leap. Here is some helpful advice for those wishing to tie the knot overseas:

Plan ahead: Procedures vary from place to place and some require extensive preparations. When planning to marry in a foreign land, learn the requirements of that country. Marriages, which are legally performed and valid abroad, are also legally binding in the U.S., unless the marriage breaks U.S. state laws. Documentation needed: Valid forms of identification or U.S. passports are required, in addition to birth certificates, divorce decrees and death certificates. Some countries require the documents presented to the marriage registrar first be authenticated in the U.S. by a consular official of that country. This process can be time consuming and costly.

Affidavit of eligibility to wed: Some countries require an affidavit to be submitted by both parties as proof of legal capacity to enter into a marriage contract. The document certifies the end of any previous relationships, such as death or divorce certificates, and states that the party is free to marry. This government-issued document does not exist in the U.S. Some countries require documents presented to the marriage registrar be translated into the native language of that country and authenticated. A list of certified translators can be found at the Ramstein legal office. Marriages abroad are performed by the local (foreign country’s) civil or religious executives and adhere to the laws of the country where the marriage is performed. Finally, if an American citizen marries a German citizen, the American does not acquire a German citizenship, nor does the German citizen acquire a U.S. citizenship. If deciding to live in the U.S. after marrying, the American spouse will need to apply for an Immigrant Visa on behalf of the nonAmerican spouse. For more information on getting married in Germany, pick up a marriage in Germany packet from the 786th Force Support Squadron passport office.

Violating German traffic laws can be costly Failing to comply with German traffic laws just got a lot more expensive. Since April 1, the cost of traffic fines has increased, as has the likelihood that you’ll have your authority to drive in Germany suspended. Here are a few examples of the new penalties for violating German traffic laws: • Running a red light: Fines range from €90 to €360. The maximum fine applies if the light was red for more than one second and the incident resulted in property damage. In addition, a onemonth suspension of your driver’s license is added if running the light results in endangerment or property damage, or if the light was red for more than one second. • Failure to yield right of way: €100. Remember that in

Germany, if not otherwise indicated (in other words, no priority road or yield signs), you must yield to the person coming from the right. • Driving while intoxicated: For administrative offenses (blood alcohol of less than 1.1 per mille), fines up to €1,500 are possible along with a mandatory suspension of one to three months. Remember, there is “zero alcohol tolerance” for drivers under 21. If your blood alcohol level is more than 1.1 per mille, this is a German criminal offense and the fines and suspension times are much higher — there is even a possibility of jail time. Further, under U.S. Army Europe Regulation 190-1, your USAREUR certificate of license, which authorizes you to drive in Germany, will be suspended or revoked for even longer periods of time.

• Speeding: Fines range from €10 to €680. In addition, license suspensions of one to three months may be imposed. The maximum fine and suspension period apply when exceeding the speed limit inside city limits by more than 70 kph. Remember that city limits (and therefore speed limit of 50 kph unless posted otherwise) starts at the yellow city sign. • Tailgating: Fines range from €25 to €400, and license suspensions of one to three months are authorized. • Parking ticket: The fine for unauthorized parking can be up to €50. The maximum applies in case of parking in a designated fire lane with actual obstruction of an emergency vehicle. (Courtesy of 86th Mission Support Group)

KMC hosts motorcycle safety day Story and photo by Senior Airman Caitlin Guinazu 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Airlift Wing safety office, in conjunction with the USO and local organizations, hosted its annual motorcycle safety day June 1 on Kapaun. The event exhibited safety equipment demonstrations and techniques, and showcased road obstacle maneuverability and braking responses. Throughout the day, certified German instructors guided individuals through various workshops, which included positioning, observation, braking, as well as lapping sessions on the practice course. It also provided new riders the opportunity to go on an instructor-based motorcycle ride off-base. “This is something the USO has done in cooperation with the 86th Airlift Wing safety office in order to bring attention to motorcycle safety,” said Konrad Braun, USO area director. “This event is important, because we’re trying to stress motorcycle safety with a German touch. If you’re going to be riding motorcycles in Germany, it would definitely benefit you to receive some very good instruction by certified German instructors.” The all-day event was not just about information and learning. It also gave riders a chance to enjoy the different aspects of motorcycle riding. “As a new rider, this event was very beneficial,” said Airman 1st Class Vanessa Escobar, 721st Aerial Port Squadron processing specialist. “The instructors gave me some positive advice; they called me to the side and gave me one-on-one feedback

on how to ride better. I wish they would have this course at least once a month. It was a ton of fun, and I learned a lot.” Invitations to this event went to not only bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts, but also to those just looking for something fun to do. “It’s an opportunity for people to come out and have fun,” Braun said. “With decent weather, plenty

of refreshments and raffle prizes handed out every hour, this was great. No matter if you were here to learn about motorcycles or just came to check out the activities, everybody had fun and learned a ton.” For more information on the Ramstein Green Knights Chapter, visit www.greenknightsmmc.org or find them on Facebook.

Community kicks off Farewell Heidelberg festivities by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs HEIDELBERG — It’s been more than 50 years since Max Rockafellow patrolled the streets of Heidelberg as a military policeman with the 529th MP Company. On June 1, the Wisconsin native returned to the city for the first time since 1962. He and several other former and current Heidelberg community members huddled anxiously in front of a long, bright red ribbon guarding the entryway to the Farewell Heidelberg multimedia exhibit on Patrick Henry Village. The exhibit takes place from 2 to 9 p.m. today and 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Towering panels of black and white and color photos and military memorabilia sent in from around the world greeted visitors of all ages as they shuffled into the space that was once

the Heidelberg Arts and Crafts Center. Within seconds, Rockafellow was face to face with a black and white photo of himself clad in dress blues standing at attention. “I was just thrilled. I get tears in my eyes just seeing it. I sent a lot of photos in, and I’m really pleased that they chose three or four of them to use,” he said Rockafellow is part of a 529th Military Police reunion group that meet in the states. The unit invited members of the group back for a visit before U.S. Army Garrison Baden-Württemberg’s closure this year. “I looked at it as a once in a lifetime opportunity to come back and see the places where I served. I had to do it. I’m 75 and I knew this was probably my last opportunity. I wanted to see it because I spent some wonderful years here in Heidelberg and I wanted to see it close,” he said. Garrison Commander Col. Bryan

DeCoster led the official ribboncutting ceremony to open the exhibit. The event marked the beginning of a series of Farewell Heidelberg activities to mark the garrison’s closure and the nearly 70 years of friendship between Germans and Americans. “The closure of any installation or garrison carries special memories for the people who have lived and served there,” DeCoster said. “When it is such a historic community as Heidelberg, with 68 years of close partnership with our German friends, we felt it was only fitting to host a series of events that would allow people to celebrate their memories and experiences rather than dwelling on the departure of U.S. forces from the city.” Rockafellow now lives in Eagle River, Wisc. After leaving Heidelberg, he went back to college and eventually took a job working for General Motors.

“I learned a lot of things in the 529th that shaped the rest of my life and that was important,” he said. “If I haven’t spent the time in the Army here, I probably would not have had that focus or drive to accomplish what I have.” The Farewell Heidelberg exhibit also features a showing of a 50-minute film entitled “Heidelberg Reflections.” The film documents the first-hand accounts of life, love and loss as told by former and current Heidelberg community members. Visitors can also check out military uniforms, community memorabilia and even a replica of a 1950s living room complete with record player. Several of the photos featured in the exhibit were submitted by former and current Heidelberg community members from around the world and also donated by historian Dr. John Provan.

Epic Dudes

Adventure skills inspire youth to be great All children love playing outdoors, especially as the weather gets a little bit warmer in Germany. Many adults also have great memories of riding bikes, making mud pies, catching bugs and having imaginary adventures in the backyard. However, how many children in the KMC can say they know how to utilize digital GPS navigation systems, build an outdoor shelter or cook a cake in a box or have visited some of the best hiking trails in the local area? The children from Ramstein Youth Programs sure can! Epic Dudes is one of the specialty programs offered during the school year. The club is based on the Passport to Manhood curriculum from

the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and is designed to foster responsibility, selfesteem and leadership in young men. Matching up this curriculum with a youth development professional with a passion for outdoor and adventure programming produced a combination that is truly epic. “This program has grown beyond anything I could have hoped for,” said Epic Dudes adviser Ronnie Juhans. “At first, the boys liked having a club where no girls were allowed, but they have gotten involved in so much more through their participation.” By introducing activities based around outdoor adventure, Juhans teaches specific skills, while also building resilience, as youth develop a

sense of competence to successfully master tasks and build confidence as they work through challenges presented in the activities. With the success and popularity of Epic Dudes, Ramstein Youth Programs is taking the program to another level this summer with the Out & About Adventure Camp series. From STEMtastic Travels and time traveler adventures to outdoor survival and boots and backpack hiking, youth can spend the day exploring, learning skills, making friends and having fun. “It is difficult to really describe how much youth gain from Mr. Ronnie’s programs,” said Kaureen Whittaker, assistant director for Ramstein Youth Programs. “But a par-

ent from Mr. Ronnie’s spring break camp told us that her kids gave up a week in Garmisch to participate in the camps because they are the best thing about the KMC.” The Out & About Adventure Camp series includes field trips to locations that reinforce learning in STEM topics, such as history, environmental conservation and physical fitness or nutrition. Additional high yield learning activities build skills in GPS, survival knowledge, appreciation of the outdoor environment and enjoyment of German culture. “I want the kids to challenge themselves to try new things so that they realize how many talents and abilities they already have and how they can

use those skills to truly reach their potential,” Juhans said. Goals like completing a hike might seem small to adults, but it offers a wealth of learning opportunities. From determining your level of physical fitness and how to improve, working as a team to ensure no one is left behind, or making a plan for what do when you are caught in an unexpected downpour, youth in these camps are building life skills and making amazing memories in this once-ina-lifetime adventure.

Lessons learned on the journey through high school by Meghan Augsburger Ramstein High School intern High school has been a rewarding, yet challenging experience. At times, it was a struggle trying to find where I belonged or what I wanted to achieve. Now that graduation has arrived and high school has come to an end, I understand what lessons those four years taught me. The first lesson I’ve finally learned at the end of my senior year is that being happy with yourself as well as your accomplishments makes all the difference in life. Realizing your worth builds self-esteem and brings you forward through the tough times. I have come to understand this on a very personal level. During my senior year, I lost my self-esteem for many reasons. I allowed myself to focus only on what I considered to be “failures” in my

Calling RMS parents

life. I didn’t recognize who I was anymore and I only based my self-worth on what others thought of me. It seemed like the cloud would never lift because I only found faults in my character and appearance. This rough patch, however, was of my own making. No one ever told me I wasn’t worth it; only I ever told myself that. Once I accepted who I was and realized the value of all the love and support I had, I found my way again. Instead of criticizing myself for my mistakes, I needed to learn from them and utilize that knowledge to do better the next time. I know now that I am my best friend and only I can bring myself up or down. The second lesson I learned is to take opportunities when they are presented to you. Sometimes they never appear again, and when that happens, you regret it. I didn’t do that enough while I was in high school because I

improve my writing. Without even realizing it, they made me extremely happy and I’ll be forever grateful to them. Taking on this internship was the best decision I made throughout my high school career by far. I’m awfully sad that I won’t be working with them anymore; however, I know I’m leaving with a great feeling in my heart and a sense of satisfaction. I have also been very fortunate to have such wonderful parents, teachers and friends who have always supported me. They helped me realize all I have to offer and what opportunities and experiences lie ahead of me. As I walk across the stage today, I know that with my confidence, the support of others and the experiences I have had these past four years, I am prepared to emerge into the real world and succeed.

felt scared to experience new things. I only focused on what could go wrong rather than what could go right. The greatest opportunity presented to me was this Career Practicum internship at the Kaiserslautern American newspaper. When I started the program, I felt very nervous to start my internship because I was afraid of failing or not being accepted. If I had allowed this opportunity to pass me by, I would have been a fool. At the 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs office, everyone has been welcoming since day one. Because of them, I have grown as a writer and learned the importance of camaraderie, responsibility and hard work. Their support and continuous kindness motivated me to do my very best every week. Though my articles were never vital to the newspaper, they always took the time to provide constructive criticism and help me to

Otterberg hosts spring festival Saturday to Monday by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Otterberg will sponsor its traditional spring fest Saturday through Monday. Every two years since the middle of the 18th century, the community celebrates this spring fest, in turn with the old town fest. The local mayor and Spring Queen Julia II will officially open the event at 7 p.m. Saturday in front of the Abbey Church. The enthronement of the spring queen will be conducted with the musical support of the Music Association Harmonie from Otterberg. At 8:30 p.m., the regional and renowned band Favorits will start entertaining the audience. Traditionally, loud gun salutes will wake up Otterberg citizens at 6 a.m. Sunday. Then, musicians from the Music Association Harmonie will walk through the streets of the medieval village performing a musical wake up call. The highlight of spring fest will be the parade with more than 1,000 participants walking up the decorated main street at 1 p.m. Sunday. Wagons and people in costumes will present the colorful history of Otterberg — there will be people dressed as Cistercian monks, Huguenots and Wallonians, and noble people in horse-drawn carriages. Spring Queen Julia II will follow the group in a festive, horsedrawn carriage. Local schools, kindergartens, associations and businesses participate as well. After the parade, everybody

The Otterberg spring fest parades feature various walking groups. This year’s festival will take place from Saturday through Monday and include musicians, costumes, parades, and food and beverages.

will walk about 2 kilometers outside of town toward Höringen to the festival grounds in the forest, where festivities will continue. For those who don’t want to walk or can’t walk, a shuttle bus will be available. Various music groups from neighboring towns will entertain visitors in the forest. Local restaurants will be in charge of providing food specialties and drinks. Children can enjoy

pony rides, and the Kaiserslautern zoo will be there with some little animals. Customarily, the climbing tree will be a challenge for youth. Everyone who makes it to the top will receive a present. Local council members will also pass out pretzels to children. Spring fest will continue Monday when the Otterberg Music Association will again march to the festival area in the forest. Visitors are welcome to

join the march starting at 2 p.m. from the town hall (Verbandsgemeindeverwaltung). Again, the forest will turn into a fest area with musical entertainment and food and beverages. At 6:30 p.m., the fest will close out with a parade walking back to the square in front of the Abbey Church. Here, officials and participants will thank the forestry office for letting them use the fest area in the forest.

Commander, mayor meet to celebrate ‘win-win-win’ Story and photo by Mark Heeter U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs

Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern commander, and Werner Holz, mayor of the Union Community Bruchmühlbach-Miesau, watch the operation of a new methanepowered heating plant.

Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern commander, and Werner Holz, mayor of the Union Community Bruchmühlbach-Miesau, came together May 29 to celebrate the successful installation and activation of a block-heating plant on Miesau Army Depot — the second step the Army and community have taken to provide cleaner energy while reducing costs. “This is the second major improvement we’ve done together,” Zetterstrom said, recalling the project to install photovoltaic panels on depot buildings in 2012. “When you’ve been friends for so

long, you have to find ways to keep it fresh,” Zetterstrom said. “It’s another great example of how to keep the friendship current.” The plant uses bio-methane, which is cleaner than oil, to provide heat and electricity to the installation. Looking outside at the unusually cold and rainy weather, Holz joked that “we have the best weather conditions for heating.” The concept for the project was developed by the mayor, his staff, garrison staff and the community council back in 2002, and the wait was worth it, Holz said. “Twenty-five percent of the energy is created on base, and this is a fantastic rate,” he said. “We do as much as we can, and it’s vastly renewable energy.”

Wounded warriors rehab through cycling Story and photo by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs


t’s no secret that riding a bicycle is good practice. The Wounded Warrior Project has taken this idea and applied it to helping wounded warriors transition back to their duties or to the civilian world. Members of the Wounded Warrior Project were on Baumholder May 28 conducting a bicycle clinic for wounded warriors from the KMC. “We’re out here with hands-on fitting, for hand cycles, hump backs or upright bikes, really fitting the warrior to whatever their need may be,” said Meghan Speicher-Harris, Soldier Ride recruiter. Soldiers were fitted with bicycles based on their injuries or limitations in preparation for the annual Soldier Ride, which will be conducted Aug. 10 at the nearby Bostalsee. The Wounded Warrior Project conducts these rides annually throughout the U.S. One is also sponsored locally each year. The Soldier Ride is focused on cycling. “It’s a physical health and wellness retreat-type event,” Speicher-Harris said. “We’re riding about 25 miles per day. Last year, we had around 100 warriors and cadre participate. It’s really about getting on the bike and finding their new normal, using cycling as recovery, teaching them about physical health and wellness and just riding here in beautiful Germany.” Everyone is invited to ride and support the more than 100 warriors expected to participate.
