Scholarships for Military Children open soon By Mike Perron DeCA Public Affairs

This holiday season is full of the usual landmark dates, including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. However, there’s one other date in December which could prove to be almost as important as the traditional celebrations for some military families: Dec. 13 marks the opening of the Scholarships for Military Children Program for the 2017-2018 school year. Now entering its 17th year, the program was created to recognize the “contributions of military families to the readiness of the fighting force and to celebrate the role of the commissary in the military family community,” according to the mission statement on the website. At least one scholarship worth $2,000 will be awarded at every commissary location where qualified applications are received. Additional recipients will be selected based on a prorated basis, so more scholarships will be awarded at those stores with larger numbers of applicants. A total of 700 scholarship grants will be awarded this year.

Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps service members and their families, administers the program. Scholarship Managers, a national, nonprofit, scholarship management services organization, manages and awards the scholarships. “This is always an exciting time of year, when the Fisher House Scholarships for Military Children program kicks off, knowing 700 military children will have the opportunity to receive a $2,000 scholarship to help toward their studies,” said Marye Dobson, the Defense Commissary Agency’s liaison for the scholarship program. The commissary’s industry partners, including vendors, suppliers and manufacturers, as well as the general public donate money to the program, and every dollar donated goes directly toward funding the scholarships. To qualify for consideration, applicants must be a dependent, unmarried child, younger than 21 — or 23, if enrolled as a full-time student at a college or university — of a service member on active duty, a Reserve or Guard member, retiree or survivor of a military member who died while on

active duty, or survivor of a retiree. Applications must be hand-delivered or shipped via the U.S. Postal Service or other delivery methods to the commissary where the applicant’s family normally shops by close of business Friday, Feb. 12, 2017. Applications cannot be emailed or faxed. “Every year, we continue to be impressed by the caliber of military children who submit applications. The students who are selected to receive scholarship grants are truly ‘the best

of the best,’” said Jim Weiskopf, Fisher House Foundation vice president. Applicants should ensure that they and their sponsor are enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System database and have a military ID card. The applicant must attend or plan to attend an accredited college or university, full time, in the fall of 2017 or be enrolled in studies designed to transfer to a four-year program. Students who are awarded a full scholarship or receive an appointment to one of the military academies or affiliated preparatory schools are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees and other expenses. In the past 16 years of its existence, the program has awarded more than $15 million in scholarships to over 9,000 students.

Take steps to prevent house fires during holidays By U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center As the Christmas season approaches, many of us are decorating our homes, finalizing our wish lists and planning big meals. During this exciting time, however, we must not forget the holidays also bring an increased risk of home fires. When decorating your home this year, make safety a priority to ensure your holiday home is a safe home.


Fire is the primary concern with a live Christmas tree, which is often brought on by the combination of electrical malfunctions and a drying tree. To help cut the risk of tree fires,

Making sure a real tree is fresh and kept watered can help reduce the risk of fire. always purchase a freshly cut tree. A good test of a tree’s freshness is to hold a branch between your thumb and forefinger and pull your hand toward you. If the tree is fresh, it should lose very few needles. It’s also a good idea to bump

the base of the trunk against the ground and see if an excessive amount of needles fall off. It’s normal for a tree to lose a few needles; however, a lot of falling needles could signal the tree is drying out and could soon become a fire hazard. Once you get your tree home — and before you put it in a stand — consider cutting an inch or so off the bottom of the trunk. Sap can seal the base of pre-cut trees, hindering their ability to absorb water. Once the tree has a fresh cut, make sure to use a sturdy holder with wide-spread legs and ensure the stand’s water reservoir is large enough and kept full at all times. When selecting a location for the tree, make sure it is not

close to a heat source such as a radiator or furnace vent, which could cause it to dry out faster. If you are considering an artificial tree, make sure it is flame retardant. Another concern with a live Christmas tree is the fire danger brought on by electrical malfunctions. Make sure lights have a factory label which assure they have been safety tested. Inspect each string of lights for damage and position bulbs so they are not in contact with needles or ornaments. Don’t connect more than three sets of lights on the same extension cord and NEVER place lit candles on your tree. The National Fire Protection

December is also the peak time for home candle fires. In fact, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve are among the top five days of the year for home candle fires. Candles are responsible for at least 71 percent of December home fires due to improper decorating practices or candles left unattended.

Gift restrictions during the holidays By Wiesbaden Legal Center The holiday season puts everyone in the gift giving mood. While most of us enjoy both receiving and giving gifts, there are federal restrictions in place that Soldiers and Department of Defense civilian employees must follow when giving each other gifts. The general rule regarding gifts, according to the Code of Federal Regulation, is that Soldiers and DoD civilian employees may not accept gifts from other Soldiers and DoD civilian employees who receive less pay or are subordinates. There are a few select exceptions to this general rule. One such exception is if there is a personal relationship between the two individuals that would justify the gift and they are not in a subordinateofficial superior relationship. An example would be if two Soldiers had been friends for many years and they traditionally trade gifts during the holidays. The most common exception this time of year is the occasional basis exception. This exception may be used on any occasion on which gifts are traditionally given or exchanged, such as during the holiday season. Under this exception, an official superior may accept a gift from a subordinate or employee receiving less pay if:

Soldiers and DOD civilians should ensure holiday gifts between co-workers are within regulatory guidelines. (1) The gift is not cash, and has a market value of $10 or less; (2) The gift is food or/and refreshments, to be shared in the office among several employees; (3) The gift is personal hospitality provided at a residence which is of a type and value customarily provided by the employee to personal friends; and (4) The gift is given in connection with the receipt of personal hospitality if of a type and value customarily given on such occasions. Gifts to contractors shall never exceed twenty dollars in value. Additionally, some contractors may have more specific restrictions on gifts, therefore it may be best to check with the contractor

before purchasing a gift. White Elephant gift exchanges may have no monetary limit if the gifts are truly chosen at random or traded because it is unknown who will eventually receive the gift. However, if a contractor is participating, there must be a limit of $20 in place. The above rules apply when there is a known recipient for the gift. Soldiers and DoD civilian employees need to be mindful of the rules as they plan their holiday gifts or begin to receive holiday gifts. Please remember that this guidance only highlights common questions, and does not cover every situation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding gifts, please contact your ethics advisor.

Gail Halvorson, U.S. Army Air Corps member who famously airlifted more than two million tons of goods in more than 277,000 flights in and out of Berlin in 1948 through 1949, visited Frankfurt for the rededication of the Berlin Air Drop Monument at the Frankfurt International Airport, and found time to pass out some sweets to the children's choir who performed at the ceremony.

country, to protect not only the United States but also the cause of freedom. “We are very, very grateful to have these folks that are willing to make the sacrifice to be away from home and to live here,” Emerson said. Coming to Wiesbaden this year to join Soldiers and leaders stationed here for Thanksgiving was the Emerson’s way of saying thank you and giving back to those away from family and friends back in the United States but also to serve those who serve the nation. They stood behind the serving line dishing out turkey and stuffing to young and old alike. “We are so very grateful to you for all that you do for our country and our world,” Kimberly Emerson said. “Happy Thanksgiving.”

FRANKFURT, Germany — “Candy Bomber,” U.S. Army Air Corps Col. (Ret.) Gail Halvorson, famed pilot who dropped food and candy to children in Germany from 1948 through 1949, visited Frankfurt for the rededication of the Berlin Airlift Monument at the Frankfurt Airport Nov. 21. “I just knew that it was better to be dropping food ... than bombs,” said the 96-year old Halvorson, who was especially known for dropping chocolate bars attached to tiny parachutes from the sky. “Why did I drop the chocolate? Because of gratitude, the sincere, unabashed gratitude and thanks exhibited by those beautiful children in Berlin.” “Operation Vittles” was the name of the original mission that Halvorson joined in 1948, flying out of Wiesbaden Airfield and Rhein Main Airfield and then expanded with “Operation Little Vittles,” the candy-dropping campaign. The former Wiesbaden Army Airfield is today the location of U.S. Army Europe headquarters and Rhein Main Airfield is today part of Frankfurt International Airport. During the course of the Berlin Air Drops, more than 2 million tons of goods in more than 277,000 flights in and out of Berlin occurred.

Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa and volunteers repainted and restored the Berlin Airlift monument on location at the airport, added a park, and reopened the site to the public. As a special guest of honor, the Frankfurt Airport, or FRAPORT, and the Berlin Airlift Association, paid for Halvorson and two of his daughters to attend. “It was a distinct honor to represent U.S. Army Europe at the Berlin Airlift rededication ceremony, to meet Col. Halvorson again, and to be reminded of the ‘power of one’,” said Mike Anderson, U.S. Army Europe, director, European host nations. “The power of one individual, Gail Halvorson, during a massive ‘Operation Vittles’ which fed and kept warm the 2 million inhabitants of the capital city of a former enemy, has rightfully captured our imagination for nearly 70 years.” Halvorson wore his 2nd lieutenant Army Air Corps uniform of 1948 to the ceremony and had chocolate bars in hand which he handed out to children at the ceremony. While many still call him the “Candy Bomber,” Halvorson said he prefers the name, “Chocolate Bomber.” “Which name do I like most, ‘Candy Bomber’ or ‘Chocolate Bomber’? Halvorson mused. “Well, chocolate is a lot more specific and always well received, so “Chocolate Bomber,” please.” .............................................................................

New peer-support service helps Soldiers, Families By DoD News

Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON – On Oct. 21, the Defense Department launched a new call and outreach center that offers confidential peer support to active duty service members, National Guardsmen, reservists and family members through 24/7 chat, phone and text. The Department of Defense “BeThere” Call and Outreach Center is staffed by peers who are veteran service members and family members of veterans. The center aims to provide support for the everyday problem-solving of career and general life challenges. “We are honored to support our service members and their families as they get connected to needed resources through the support of those who have also served our country,” said Wendy Lakso, the Defense Suicide Prevention Office’s director for outreach and education. “This new initiative recognizes the unique challenges faced within the military community, promotes awareness, reduces the stigma and provides

solutions for breaking through barriers when it comes to seeking help.” TriWest Healthcare Alliance administers the BeThere Call and Outreach Center in 50 states and four U.S. territories and provides worldwide service through live chat. The company has supported the TRICARE program for active duty service members and their families and currently administers the Veterans Choice Program for former service members within 28 states. “It is a privilege to again serve alongside the Department of Defense in providing quality services to support those who wear the cloth of the nation and their families,” said Dave McIntyre, president and CEO of TriWest. “This unique population deserves and will receive our full focus in offering high-quality, easily accessible assistance. We thank DOD and their Suicide Prevention Office team for the confidence in allowing us to come to their side to contribute to their efforts through this important new initiative.”

News and features Ukrainian Soldiers conduct air assault training Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Elizabeth Tarr

YAVORIV, Ukraine— Ukrainian Soldiers assigned to 1st Battalion, 80th Airmobile Brigade conducted an air assault mission in conjunction with a situational training exercise, led by U.S. Soldiers from 6th Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Nov. 28, at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center. The training scenario consisted of a platoon-sized element of Ukrainian Soldiers assaulting from four Mi-8 helicopters during a simulated firefight to relieve Ukrainian forces that were pinned down. Once the area was secured, Ukrainian Soldiers utilizing BTR armored personnel carriers and ZU-23-2 towed antiaircraft weapons provided support in strengthening the defensive perimeter. “This training is important because it builds confidence in the Ukrainian force’s ability to utilize combined arms maneuver,” said Sgt. Christopher Marinucci, assistant team leader assigned to 6-8 CAV. “We’re working with rotary wing aircraft, armored personnel carriers, dismounted infantry and it’s important for the commander on the ground to be confident working with all the combined elements.” Prior to conducting the air assault mission, the Ukrainian Soldiers went through several weeks of training to prepare them for a successful mission. “We started off by doing squad, platoon and company

level situational training exercises, medical training, such as first aid and combat life savers course, call for fire procedures, and then went into hot load/cold load procedures for the aircraft before conducting this training,” Marinucci said. Once the mission was complete, the Ukrainian Soldiers conducted an after action review. The AAR allows Soldiers to understand what went well during the training, and how they can improve the training to obtain better results in the future. According to Marinucci they teach them the standard Army AAR process, which is extremely effective. They look at each phase of the operation to determine what the initial plan was and what actually happened in order to learn how they could improve for the next training iteration. Marinucci has been in Ukraine for six months and has formed strong bonds with the Ukrainian Soldiers. “Some of the Ukrainian Soldiers have told us that we may have been born American but we are definitely Ukrainian at heart, which is a great compliment.” Soldiers of 6-8 CAV are currently responsible for training Ukrainian ground forces as part of the Joint Multinational Training GroupUkraine. JMTG-U is training Ukrainian land forces and building a team of Ukrainian cadre who will ultimately assume that responsibility. The training is designed to reinforce defensive skills of the Ukrainian Ground Forces in order to increase their capacity for self-defense.

A Ukrainian Soldier assigned to 1st Battalion, 80th Airmobile Brigade lies in the prone position to provide coverage for an air assault mission in conjunction with a situational training exercise led by Soldiers from 6th Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Nov. 28 at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center. This training is part of their 55-day rotation with the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine. The group provides U.S. Soldiers and Special Operations personnel to train Ukraine National Guard units in an ongoing effort to strengthen Ukraine’s defenses.

Holiday traditions light up the season in Germany The advent season and Christmas time in Germany is magical. Typical German seasonal customs — the romantic historical markets, the tasteful decorations of the cities with garlands, lights and glittering Christmas trees — make the darkest time of the year shine bright. People decorate their houses with wreaths, put lighted candles and pyramids in their windows, and decorate their yards with lights. The official start of the holiday season for Germans is on the first of four Advent Sundays. Families gather around a decorated wreath with four candles, called “Adventskranz,” and light a new candle every Sunday until all four are burning. The afternoons are an opportunity to enjoy an “Adventskaffee” (coffee) with cake or home-baked “Weihnachtsplätzchen” (Christmas cookies). The children have Advent calendars that are filled with sweets or small gifts to open each day until December 24 to make the waiting period seem shorter. It is also the season to enjoy social time with family and friends. As the weather turns colder, parents spend time with their children indoors baking cookies or creating decorations for windows and trees. Co-workers sometimes visit a local Christmas market together after work to enjoy a cup of “Glühwein” or hot chocolate. An old and almost forgotten tradition is cutting a few branches of fruit and nut trees, like apple, cherry or chestnut trees Dec. 4 and putting them in a vase filled with water. December 4 is Barbaratag, named after the martyr St. Barbara, who died in the third century. If all goes right, the branches will bloom by Christmas Eve, not only bringing color and fragrance into the house, but also serving as a good-luck charm for the coming year. The children look forward to a visit by St. Nikolaus in early December; the saint usually appears in the Eastern Rite vestments of a bishop, and carries a ceremonial staff. He stops by the homes of children on the eve of Dec. 6 and places oranges, nuts, candy and sometimes small presents into the shined boots they have placed outside. Sometimes Nikolaus comes into the homes or Kindergartens to talk to the children and listen to their recitals of songs and poems. Often he is accompanied by his assistant, Knecht Rupprecht, a meanlooking fellow who threatens to punish naughty children by taking them away in his potato sack. In theAlpine regions, St.

Decorating the Christmas tree is a cherished tradition in Germany. In the 15th century, trees were decorated with apples, nuts and sweets; wax candles were added later. Nikolaus is often accompanied by a scary looking hairy figure called Krampus. A Christmas tree is an important decoration detail for most homes in Germany. The trees are sold on the street corners or supermarket parking lots and carried home on the tops of cars. Families often pick out trees together. The tradition of the Christmas tree dates back to the 15th century. At first the tree was decorated only with apples, nuts and sweets; wax candles were added later. Many German families still decorate their tree in the “altdeutsche Tradition,” or the old German way, with real candles and wood and straw ornaments. The tree stays up usually until after New Year's or even until Jan. 6, Three Kings Day. Christmas Eve is usually spent with close family and includes attending a festive church service together; each family has their own traditions, which sometimes include the joint singing of Christmas songs or children performing on their musical instruments. Some families prepare a special meal, the recipe handed down through the generations; some keep it very simple with “Würstchen und Kartoffelsalat” (wieners and potato salad); others serve fish or poultry. The highlight of the evening is, especially for the children, the opening of the presents. The delivery person for the presents varies by region. In the south of Germany — as well as Aus-

tria and Switzerland — the packages are often brought by the “Christkind” (Christ child) and assistant angels. In the north the job usually keeps the Weihnachtsmann busy, a guy in a red suit who looks a lot like the American Santa Claus. To make sure the children can't watch when the packages are put under the tree, the parents lock the room with the Christmas tree until a little bell rings and the children are allowed inside. Christmas Day is reserved for a large festive meal and time spent with the extended family. The day after Christmas, Stefanstag, is also an official holiday, often used as an opportunity for more visits with family and friends, or long walks in the crisp winter air. The holiday season comes to an end Jan. 6, another German holiday known as “Dreikönigstag” (Three Kings Day or Epiphany). Around this time, the “Sternsinger” (star singers), members of the local church communities, walk from door to door to collect money for charity projects. The group is usually composed of four children or teenagers, dressed up as the three wise men and a star bearer. After singing a song or reciting a poem or prayer, they write the annual blessing on the front door with a piece of chalk: 20 C+M+B 17 — “Christus mansionem benedicat,” wishing you the best for the new year and “May Christ Bless this House.”

Avian bird flu increase this season Wiesbaden Veterinary Treatment Facility Release There is currently an outbreak of a type of influenza in birds in Europe, including Germany, according to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Veterinary, Preventive Medicine Department. No human cases have occurred nor are any expected. Technically, the outbreak is from Avian Influenza H5N8. This type of influenza has never

been known to infect humans. The infection can spread from wild birds to domestic poultry. The local authorities are engaged in a coordinated response to minimize spread to more poultry farms in the region. There is no risk of transmission from preparing, cooking, or eating poultry (chickens, turkey, ducks) purchased either on-post or on the German economy. The Department of Defense continues to perform surveillance for the

emergence of new influenza viruses in beneficiaries and will alert the community if any new virus is detected that may pose a threat to human health. If you or a member of your family develops an influenza-like illness with fever and respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, or sneezing, please contact your local Army Health Clinic for evaluation, testing, and care. Although there have been no reported cases of this virus being transmitted

to humans, you should not touch dead birds you may come across. Instead, please report dead animals, especially birds, to the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Directorate of Public Works Pest Control by calling 548-HELP (4357). Please provide the building number and describe where the animal is located (such as on grass, sidewalk, near curb) to assist with pick-up. DPW works with German authorities to test the birds as they continue to monitor the outbreak.

Army secretary: Capabilities more important than numbers Story and photo by Jim Garamone Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON — The Army needs to stop talking strictly about the numbers of its Soldiers and focus on the capabilities the service needs, Army Secretary Eric Fanning said here today. Fanning discussed Army capabilities with Wall Street Journal reporter Gordon Lubold during the Defense One Summit. The secretary said the Army needs to define what it needs for the future. There are currently more than 100,000 U.S. Soldiers posted overseas in more than 150 countries, Fanning said. The Army’s role in countering current threats, he said, has

“stripped a lot of investment out of the future [and] even a lot of intellectual thinking about the future.”

Creative, Innovative Army Workforce

The Army has a lot of creativity and innovation in its military and civilian workforce, Fanning said, and they need to be empowered and funded to move the service forward. Army special operations forces are incredibly lethal, but they have been worked hard over the past years, the Army secretary said. There is renewed discussion, he said, about the capabilities the Army requires to continue to accomplish its missions, now and into the future.

Herald Union

The Army is headed to a total of 450,000 active-duty troops, “but the number, by itself doesn’t really tell you a lot,” Fanning said. “There is a lot of analysis behind the number, but there is not precision behind this because it is all about risk.” People need to get away from focusing simply on force structure and numbers, the Army secretary said. “Whether the number is 450- or 480- or 520-[thousand], you could end up creating more imbalances because those people cost something,” he said. “We have to have the money to train and equip them. And then there is ‘the [logistics] tail’ — and that goes to the future for a very long way — you have

training and equipment equals capability, and there must be a balance, Fanning said.

News and features Dailey: Accessing behavioral health care should be as easy as seeing a medic By C. Todd Lopez Army News Service

WASHINGTON — Both the Army secretary and the sergeant major of the Army are on the record: There must be a substantial change in the way Soldiers think about behavioral health care. “There needs to be a paradigm shift in how we look at behavioral health,” said Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey. “It needs to become common practice — an everyday event.” Dailey believes that, across the force, seeking out such assistance must be as common and accepted as going to the dentist for a checkup or to see the doctor for an injury. Soldiers ought to value being squared away psychologically as much they value being squared away physically. The Army aims to promote this attitude, Dailey said, by making behavioral health assistance as common as medical health assistance. “We screen all of our Soldiers for all kinds of medical reasons,” he said. “One of those [reasons] should be behavioral health. And it should be a common practice ... That way, we become accustomed to … [it as] an acceptable thing to do. It

is acceptable to ask for help.” Right now, Dailey said, it's expected that a Soldier who gets hurt will seek medical assistance. It's also expected that a Soldier who sees another get injured will get that injured Soldier to a medic. In the Army, seeking help under such circumstances is not a sign of weakness. The same ought to be true for behavioral health assistance, Dailey said. According to Dailey, the Army's behavioral health care system has grown tremendously over the past several years, including at unit level, where it takes the form of embedded behavioral health programs that promote behavioral health right where Soldiers work and live. As of October, the Army had filled 100 percent of its planned 61 embedded behavioral health teams. Each team typically involves about 12 to 13 members, including 10 service providers. Currently, the teams provide direct support to 31 brigade combat teams across theArmy, as well an additional 142 other battalion and brigade-sized units. Already, the Army deployment of embedded behavioral health has achieved statistically significant improvements in areas such as mission readiness, outpatient behavioral health care services and

Research has shown that 20 percent of the Soldiers who deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom meet the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder, while 15 percent of those Soldiers will likely experience other behavioral health prob-

lems that could benefit from treatment. “This is not something we can change, but it is something we can treat,” Dailey said. “[I] urge everybody to break the silence and promote dialogue within your formations at home and in your communities. Seek help and take the first step in recovery in overall resiliency.” ........................................................................... Dec. 8, 2016

Keep weight in check: Weigh yourself in the morning, at least once or twice a week, during the holidays. This should enough to notice any slight increase from the week and to keep you in check for the weekend and vice-versa. Jumpstart your metabolism for the day: Get up and at it 1530 minutes earlier and do some exercise. Early morning workouts strengthen your resolve for the day and rev up the metabolism. Remember – energy creates energy, physically and mentally. Consider purchasing a walking video, or downloading a workout app or shaking it fun with Hip Hop Abs or a Zumba video. Be thrifty with your calorie spending: Peruse the buffet table and take only the foods you enjoy

and come once a year. Don’t start with sushi, especially if you eat it all the time, and expect to be able to resist the chicken wings, which you love, but avoid. Eat what you love in moderation to stave off those cravings that get you in trouble later. Don’t waste calories on foods you can eat anytime.

Avoid food-orexia: No starving all day just to pig out at night. Eat lean protein and non-starchy vegetables throughout the day. It will prevent blood sugar from dipping and spiking and keep you full until the big event. The combo even gives you calories to spare on your favorite splurge. Say “no” and mean it. Empower willpower. Don’t let others lessen your resolve. Each time anyone says ‘no,’ it can strengthen them for the next time. But remember, the stress is in the resistance. So, if you have to say no too many times, it may be better to decline an invite or cookie exchanges. Having to resist too much can backfire. Holiday parties are social times, but they shouldn’t leave you feeling guilty and depressed.

Intensify your workout:

Time is always in short supply during the holidays. But don’t ditch the workout — just bump up

the intensity if you need to shorten the time. If you usually walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes, do 15 minutes of higher intensity intervals. If going to the gym is cutting into shopping time, use shopping as a workout — use the stairs, park farther away, walk faster and after a purchase take it to the car. Standing in line? Do calf raises, contract and relax your abs, use your purse as a dumbbell, stand up straight, tighten shoulder blades – get creative to avoid just standing in place scrolling through your phone.

Practice the 3-bite rule:

Just have to have it? Take enough for 3 small bites – that amazing first taste, a satisfying middle and then a lingering third bite – and savor each one. All the bites after that will taste the same and just add calories. When all else fails, go on the ‘No thanks honey, I’ll just have a bite of yours diet’!

Avoid hangover food:

Don’t take leftovers home

or send leftovers home with others. If it’s not in your house it won’t tempt you and others in your household. If family members insist, tell them to portion out what they want and put it in the freezer. Non-perishables? Keep them up high in the cupboard behind the cornstarch. In moments of weakness, we generally go for what we see first. Out of sight, out of reach, out of mind. Keep healthy snacks readily available: Fresh fruit in a bowl, dried fruits and nuts in snack packs, veggies and fruits cut up in the fridge, packs of tuna/salmon, yogurt, cheese sticks. Many times snacking is about quick-to-grab at first sight. Keep these healthy snacks on hand, in sight, easy to grab ’n go.

Clinic advises parents keep sick students home By Wiesbaden Army Health Clinic The Wiesbaden Army Health Clinic reports seeing a significant increase in the number of cases of the adenovirus for this time of year. The Wiesbaden Army Public Health officer in conjunction with DODEA schools in Wiesbaden have notified parents of the increase and have asked parents to keep sick students home from school. Additionally, students should not be given Tylenol or Motrin and then sent to school as this does not prevent the spread of this virus. Students must be fever

free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Motrin before returning to the school campus. DODEA's guidelines for when to keep your child home sick can be found at www.dodea. edu/attendance/upload/Whento-keep-Children-at-home.pdf. Adenoviruses are common causes of respiratory illnesses, cold like symptoms, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, and pink eye. The WAHC and the schools are continuing to encouraging hand washing during the school day by both students and staff. The following recommendations from the Center for

Disease Control and Prevention can help protect your child and others from acquiring the adenovirus: • • • • •

Washing hands often with soap and water Covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing Not touching the eyes, nose, or mouth Avoiding close contact with people who are sick Keeping your child home when sick

Man Down — In a savage post-apocalyptic America, U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia La Beouf) searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Jonathan and wife, Natalie (Kate Mara). Accompanied by his best friend Devin Roberts (Jai Courtney), a hardnosed Marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, the two intercept Charles (Clifton Collins Jr.), an apocalyptic survivor carrying vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel’s family. As we revisit the past, we are guided in unraveling the puzzle of Gabriel’s experience and what will eventually lead us to the origin of this war torn America.

Passengers — On a routine journey through space to a new home, two passengers, sleeping in suspended animation, are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions. As Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) face living the rest of their lives on board, with every luxury they could ever ask for, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction... until they discover the ship is in grave danger. With the lives of 5,000 sleeping passengers at stake, only Jim and Aurora can save them all. ........................................................................... Dec. 8, 2016

While the Adentsmarkt is more a meeting point for astronomy, the market traders build heir stands around the St. Elizabeth’s Church. In addition to the Christmas markets, the fairytale forest at the Steinweg and the ice palace at the AquaMar are also part of the pre-Christmas estivities.

Wiesbaden is one of the safest cities in Germany. Festivals and Christmas markets bring large crowds to the pedestrian areas in the local communities. Large crowds can bring out pickpockets. Avoid becoming a victim by taking a few precautions: • Carry only the necessary cash, debit, or credit cards to accomplish your planned tasks. • Distribute your cash, cards, and cell phone in different locations on your body to avoid losing everything. • Carry bags and purses with the flap or lock side closest to your body. • Do not leave bags, purses, or jackets unattended or draped over the back of a chair.

German Christmas markets, known as Weihnachtsmarkt, Christkindlesmarkt, Christkindchesmarkt or Christkindlmarkt, date back to the 1500s, when townspeople needed to stock up on food to prepare for the long winter months ahead. They also served as a venue for craftsmen to sell their wares and for parents to purchase Christmas gifts for their children. Modern Christmas markets have evolved into fantastic displays of lights and trinkets, with each town maintaining some individualism with regional specialties. Dec.8,8,2016 2016
