Soldier inducted into Sergeant Morales Club by Sgt. Michael Reinsch U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs


taff Sgt. Dustin Sigmon, a squad leader for the 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery, was inducted into the Sergeant Morales Club during a ceremony March 29 on Panzer Parade Field. “A Sergeant Morales inductee is one that represents the NCO Corps at its best,” Sigmon said. “Most people in the Army are familiar with the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club in the United States. Well, here in (U.S. Army Europe) we have the Sergeant Morales Club.” The Sergeant Morales Club was

established in 1973 by Lt. Gen. George S. Blanchard to promote the highest ideas of integrity, professionalism and leadership for the enlisted force serving in Europe. Gaining membership into the club is a rigorous and competitive event. The club focuses on exemplifying a special kind of leadership characterized by a personal concern for the needs, training development and welfare of Soldiers. These traits are tested and scrutinized during a series of three boards. The final board decides which Soldiers will be inducted into the prestigious club. “I went from my battalion level to my brigade level and then finally to the 21st TSC level,” said Sigmon, a Sherrills Ford, N.C., native. “The 21st

The portrait was provided by retired Senior Master Sgt. Mel Sylvester and retired Master Sgt. Mike Bulko in honor of the members on flight IFO-21.

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan — Imagine running from Munich, Germany, to Paris, France. An Airman’s feet may callous just thinking about it. Now, factor in an Afghanistan deployment amidst the dust, heat and a 30 pound pack. How many people would take a pass on such a lofty challenge? Capt. Tyler Streit, a 361st Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron pilot deployed from the 76th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein, didn’t take the easy road, but embraced the challenge. “There’s a million reasons not to do something, but the one that matters is the one you have to keep hold of,” Streit said. He said running 500 miles was a worthwhile goal, but not for the reason some might think. He may be in fit-to-fight shape, but he didn’t run 500 miles in 180 days to live out a lifelong track star fantasy. Streit ran to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research. The disease hits close to home because his family friend and high school soccer coach was struck with it a decade ago. Dr. Scott Mackler, an athletic 40-yearold at the time, was diagnosed with the disease and given a grim prognosis, Streit said. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as ALS, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

board was pretty intense. I had to keep calm and multitask. During the board, the NCO has to display his knowledge of his Soldiers that fall directly underneath him. He has to be able to evaluate his Soldiers, know their needs and the areas where they excel at, and be able to communicate that to the board members. At the same time, he has to show that he has the technical skill to do certain tasks to be able to lead and teach his Soldiers.” There was no doubt in the 25-yearold’s mind about becoming part of the Sergeant Morales Club.

Why have an Air Force club?


by Lt. Col. Todd R. Alcott 86th Force Support Squadron commander


s an Air Force officer charged with the responsibility of leading morale and welfare programs for Ramstein, I often get asked, “Why should I become a club member?” What used to be an unwritten rule of military professionalism is now a matter of personal choice. To add, I often meet eligible patrons who do not maintain membership. As I investigate why, I find that most do not understand how clubs receive financial support or why supporting clubs is an important value to our Air Force culture. A little history lesson first. Club members used to pay pennies on the dollar for services and U.S. taxpayers subsidized club labor, utilities and construction — a member could literally get premium service at bargain prices. During the ’80s, Congress passed legislation requiring clubs to be self-supporting and added regula-

tions on how club revenue can be utilized. Ironically, it was our Ramstein Officers’ Club that provoked the Department of Defense to create new regulations governing morale and welfare programs and construction. What started out as a simple renovation turned into a multimillion dollar debacle that initiated a Congressional inquiry. Years later, our club continues to carry the “gold plate” stigma, and incidentally, has also hindered significant progress toward investing in newer infrastructure. From today’s view, we are now perplexed at the thought of our club being gold plated, and from a customer’s perspective, I can see how a person can be negatively swayed by the aged appearance. However, it is our club and the club we inherited, and I assure you that looks alone are not the true heart of our operations — the heart of all our morale programs is our people and our promise to deliver outstanding customer service. Our clubs, like any business, depend on profit in order to open

their doors. Our average, employees make $11.61 an hour, and 98 percent of our food is shipped from the states, which adds to our operational costs and member prices. I feel it is important to be candid with customers on the costs of conducting business so everyone understands what their money buys. However, the idea of just supporting a business is not the reason I am compelled to be a member of our Air Force clubs. What people probably don’t realize is that when they decline membership, they are also declining our Air Force traditions, our core values and our established culture. Imagine our Airmen graduating from Airmen Leadership School being told, “Sorry, you do not get a graduation ceremony because our club is closed and because your Air Force forefathers chose not to support clubs.” Unfortunately, we are almost there; clubs are already being closed. Many clubs are being solely supported by Air Force retirees. Most authorized patrons make the decision

a member of the club. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do, and it came a little sooner than I had expected because I had some really good NCOs,” Sigmon said. Anyone who wants to become a member of the Sergeant Morales Club simply has to volunteer to go to the local board that happens once a quarter with most units. “Lead by example,” Sigmon said. “I think every leader wants Soldiers to be motivated and do those challenging tasks.

to not pursue membership based on their personal choice, not for the greater good of our Air Force. Sure, we could use commercial establishments to celebrate Airmen and NCO graduations, change of commands, quarterly and annual award ceremonies, volunteer and promotion ceremonies, commanders’ calls, official luncheons and dinners, Air Force balls, and birthdays, etc. However, we will pay higher prices and we will become just another customer with zero functions guaranteed. Clubs are still part of our Air Force heritage. If we lose our clubs we risk losing the ability to retain our culture and we will assume a greater security risk by operating our traditions at off-base establishments.

improvement upon yourself, and it will help you better lead Soldiers.” Sigmon attributes his want to improve himself and to advance in his military career to his upbringing. He takes the teachings of his grandfather with him wherever he goes, and he teaches those values to his Soldiers. “Something that he always said to me and I try to drill it into my Soldiers is, ‘If it’s not worth doing right the first time then it’s not worth doing at all,’” Sigmon said. “It is just something that I have applied to my life, and that is what I did for these boards.”

I am thankful for the opportunity, but you leave a bar that’s set very high,” Franklin said. “I promise you we will keep the bar high and take it to the next level.” During his speech, Franklin offered to help those who work for him as they carry out their mission. “For the Airmen, civilians and their superb fami-

lies across 3rd Air Force: It is my distinct privilege to work with you and to work for you,” Franklin said in a direct address to his new command. “Your accomplishments across the full spectrum of air power in support of joint, NATO, alliance and coalition objectives has absolutely been remarkable. You certainly are one of, if not the greatest, generation of Airmen in our Air Force’s rich history. Julie and I are truly honored for being part of your team.”



During the ceremony, Welsh also spoke of Franklin and what type of leader he knew him to be. “We are very lucky to have him. We got a commander who on 13 of his performance reports, the evaluator said he was the best officer they had ever seen,” Welsh said. Franklin comes to 3rd Air Force after a tour at the Pentagon, where he served as the vice director, Joint Staff. Franklin has had multiple command jobs over the years, such as commander of

Sadly, it’s that time,” Welsh said. “But before you do leave, do me a favor and take one long, last look at the men and women you’ve led for two and a half years and just know how proud they have been to follow.” Gorenc has been selected for reassignment to the Pentagon where he will serve as the assistant vice chief of staff and director, Air Staff, Headquarters U.S. Air Force at the Pentagon. Gorenc said he was thankful for the opportunity and looks forward to his next assignment. “While the past is interesting, this change of command is really about the future. So what comes next?” Gorenc said. “My future is simple. I have been offered a great opportunity to serve another assignment in the world’s greatest Air Force and I’m grateful for that opportunity.”

KMC gathers for first Joint Community Town Hall by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


embers of the KMC attended the first Joint Community Town Hall April 3 at the Ramstein Officers’ Club. “This is not technically a joint base but we are a joint organization because we work better together,” said Brig. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, 21st Theater Sustainment Command commander. The 86th Airlift Wing, in partnership with U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, hosted the town hall meeting in order to increase community participation and let the community’s voice be heard. “It’s not Air Force or Army, it’s all of us in the largest group of Americans outside the continental U.S. We are a family. We are a community,” said Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde, 86th AW commander. The conference kicked off with the signing of an anti-bullying proclamation by KMC leaders. After the signing, representatives from different squadrons and organizations spoke about what is happening around the community. “We need to make the community in which we live and work a better place for all of our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and their families,” Hyde said. A representative from the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron touched on school, child and bus stop safety, as well as crime prevention. The Ramstein zone manager for the Defense Commissary Agency, Europe gave updates about Ramstein’s commissary reopening, estimated for fall 2013. The Vogelweh Commissary construction, which includes a bank, is scheduled to reopen in August. The Department of Defense Education Activity’s superintendent, Dr. Dell W. McMullen, talked about education and how technology is changing the way children learn. “In order for today’s student to think in a competitive, global environment, it’s absolutely critical that he or she be able to adapt, innovate and think systemically,” she said. As a part of the town hall meeting, there was an open forum where members of the community were able to express concerns and ask questions. One question came up about developing a “good idea” web page where community members would

have a spot to share improvements. Piggee and Hyde both had an answer to the question. “I would encourage you to use the “Ask the Commander” e-mail,” Piggee said. “We’ve had a lot of discussion on improving our social media

capability, and I will tell you sometime in the near future we will have that capability where you can go in and give good ideas. I would also ask you to take advantage of the ICE program that we currently have. I would tell you it is an underutilized system that I think will give you the resources that you are asking for. So, two things: don’t be afraid to send me an e-mail, ‘Ask the Commander.’ My goal is to answer those within 24 hours, unless it’s a weekend.” Hyde said the Commander’s Action Line should also be used. “Please send your questions and comments (to the Commander’s Action Line). We have a dedicated staff that helps put together answers, and any good ideas you have are welcome,” he said. “We don’t have all of the good ideas and we rely on your input because you see our services, our bases and our installations from a different perspective. Not only do we welcome your input, but we need your help and your perspective in order to help us see our blind spots and areas where we can improve.”

We want YOU for the Caring for People Forum


he Ramstein Integrated Delivery System team is now planning the 2012 Caring for People Forum. To make it a success, the team is looking for military members, civilians, spouses, teens and retirees to join discussion groups organized to hear issues or concerns important to the KMC. If you have an idea on a policy item that could be changed or a quality of

life service that could be improved upon either on Ramstein or in the Air Force in general, this is the opportunity to share. The forum will consist of six different working groups: family support, deployment support, schools support, health and wellness, single Airman support and spouse communications. Each group will meet simultaneously, so you may only participate in one working group. Forum working groups will be facilitated by trained facilitators.

Discussions will be open and you are encouraged to bring your ideas about improving Air Force quality of life programs and activities for all Airmen and their family members. Refreshments will be served, and each focus group will have a prize drawing upon completion of the session. The Ramstein Caring for People Forum will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday. All participants will meet at the Ramstein School Age Program, Bldg. 1003, for opening

remarks at 9 a.m. Register for the Caring for People Forum by calling the Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center at 06371-47-5100 or 480-5100. Be prepared to select your primary and secondary preferences for which working group you would like to be a part of. Registration is encouraged but participants are welcome to attend on the day of the forum. (Courtesy of the 86th Force Support Squadron)

CORSICA, France — Members of Tactical Air Control Party completed allied training here, April 2. The regional air exercise over the island of Corsica consisted of multinational forces performing close air support missions simulating operations and using the same rules of engagement as used in Afghanistan. The purpose was to prepare crews for Afghan operations while focusing on CAS missions in mountainous environments.

members from the 76th AS died in a crash during a mission to rebuild Croatia after years of war. “This mission was extremely complex from the start,” said Lt. Col. Anthony Schenk, 76th Airlift Squadron commander. “The crew was flown to Zagreb in another squadron aircraft to continue the mission already in execution.” This was a mission that had numerous routing and destination changes directly in the center of a combat zone, he said. Added to this complexity was poor approach design coupled with poor weather — all factors that came together on a mountain-

“The training is important because it gives our multi-national counterparts the training needed for deployments in a life-like, controlled environment,” said Capt. Michael Hogan, 4th Air Support Operations Group. “And being so centrally located to both the water and the mountains allows us to train in all geographic terrains, which has been extremely productive.” The training included communications between American TACPs and the international pilots. The U.S. trained alongside other service members from Italy, the U.K., Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands and other countries. “Participants are going to Afghanistan all the time; this exercise is a great way for everyone to

side outside of Dubrovnik. Schenk and the rest of the 76th AS used this memorial service to pay tribute to their fallen crew members and as a learning experience. “We hold this event every year in honor of the six crew members our squadron lost in 1996,” Schenk said. “This is our way to pay tribute and to honor them and to make sure we retain the lessons of the tragedy.” During the ceremonies held over the years, there are various things done to pay respects to the crew and passengers. This year, members of the 76th AS stood in formation, there was a mural presentation and the shows of respect ended with a flyover by a C-40.

Since the crash, mission planning and execution have changed Air Force wide. “The way the Air Force approves approaches and approach design was changed that day,” Schenk said. “If no Department of Defense approaches are available into an airfield, a thorough review and approval process by terminal approach procedure professionals is required. This requirement ensures the fidelity and design of approaches used by crews worldwide.” Making sure this doesn’t happen again is how Schenk and the other members of the 76th AS plan to honor the six crew members’ memories. “The best way we honor these six crew members has been and always will be to

share knowledge with each other,” Hogan said. “This is the same type of intercommunication with different agencies used downrange.” During the training there were multiple exercises where the TACP would call in a simulated air attack. They communicated with pilots to find the designated location miles away. The exercise proved to be successful as all training objectives were met. “Some great lessons have been learned here,” said Lt. Col. Mike McManus, 4th Air Support Operations deputy commander. “We’ve been given a great opportunity to work with our coalition counterparts, all getting prepared for our ongoing fight in Afghanistan.”

do it right, every time, by the checklist, by the book and by what we know to be right,” Schenk said. “We do these checks while minimizing risk to the maximum extent pos-

sible, so that AJ, Tim, Jake, Shelley, Cheryl and Rob continue to live on with every successful mission flown by the men and women of the 76th Airlift Squadron.”

USAREUR hosts SHARP forum by Sgt. 1st Class Michelle Conrad 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs WILLINGEN, Germany — Soldiers and Department of the Army civilians attended the first Sexual Harassment Assault Response and Prevention program forum hosted by U.S. Army Europe with Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute instructors March 6 to 16 here. More than 30 sexual assault response coordinator SHARP representatives across USAREUR were invited to attend the event. The training provided during the forum is typically given only to equal opportunity advisers. SHARP program manager Rosalind Dennis, SHARP program specialist Michelle Fonseca and Sgt. 1st Class Daphne Mack, the noncommissioned officer in charge of Soldier and Family Readiness, focused the training on eliminating incidents through intervention, prevention and reporting procedures. Last year, U.S. Army Europe hosted eight DA sponsored SHARP mobile training team sessions and received feedback from the participants, highlighting a need for additional information on responding to sexual harassment complaints, Dennis said. As a result, Dennis’ team contacted DEOMI and arranged for additional training addressing sexual harassment complaint procedures. “I desire SARC/SHARP representatives to be fully equipped to successfully advise commanders and provide assistance to complainants of military sexual harassment in USAREUR,” Dennis said. The specialized training focused on understanding communication through the use of a certified mediation program. Once the SHARP program is fully implemented, the SARC/ SHARP representative serves as a mediator or neutral party by aiding complainants in solving disputes at the lowest level, instead of filing a formal complaint. If an agreement is reached, then communication lines are opened and the rapport between the two parties is strengthened. If no agreement is reached, then the issue continues and the complainant may choose to proceed with a formal complaint. “We are a force multiplier that maximizes mission readiness,” said Alberto Crespo Sr., a DEOMI instructor. “When we know ourselves and our individual biases, we are able to assist in facilitating the issues and concerns of an organization.” One of the forum attendees, Maj. Eric De La Vega, a 66th Military Intelligence Brigade SARC/SHARP representative stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany, feels USAREUR did a tremendous job by bringing the DEOMI instructors to the forum. “It’s been a great experience,” De La Vega said. “I think it was worthwhile to bring information about societal norms and how they affect Soldiers so that they will understand how to find ways to resolve issues.” Staff Sgt. Rosey Thompson, a company-level SHARP advocate with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command in Kaiserslautern, said she will use her new skills at her every day job. “I learned that as a SHARP (representative), you have to be more open to the concerns of our complainants,” Thompson said. “I feel this training prepared me to assist complainants in the process to a solution.”

me the meaning of hard work, persistence and dedication.” Mackler isn’t the only hard worker in the family, though. Mackler’s family, with the help of his church, sponsor a run every year to raise money for ALS, Streit said. Streit’s military commitment meant he had been unable to participate in Mackler’s run, so he decid-

ed to run on his own. Streit said he’s happy helping raise money even while deployed. “My goal was to raise $1,500, but I’ve received $1,800 in donations so far,” he said. Streit recently completed his goal in 114 days instead of the allotted 180. That’s the kind of initiative Mackler might have encouraged.

“He taught me to strive for my best,” Streit said. When Mackler found out Streit was raising money he sent him an e-mail. For Mackler, it’s no easy task because it might take him an hour to send one sentence, Streit said. The e-mail read, “Good luck and thanks for doing this.”

Woodward reflects on AFAFRICA’s success by Master Sgt. Jim Fisher 17th Air Force Public Affairs


aj. Gen. Margaret Woodward has been taking time from her whirlwind schedule lately to reflect on the achievements of her unit and her time at Ramstein. With the pending inactivation of the 17th Air Force (Air Forces Africa) April 20, the general has kept up the command’s obligations as the air component for U.S. Africa Command, visiting Ghana, Djibouti and Morocco in the last 30 days. She has also been taking time to reflect and recognize the contributions of AFAFRICA since its 2008 stand up. These recent senior leader engagements with partner nations are emblematic for this chapter of 17th history. “Over the last four years, we have actively engaged our African partners by offering them our respect, trust and the desire to build and strengthen enduring friendships,” said Woodward, who is preparing to become the special assistant to the deputy chief of staff, operations, plans and requirements at the U.S. Air Force Headquarters at the Pentagon. “Because we have done this with a willingness to listen and learn, our efforts have been warmly received. I am very grateful to our friends in Africa for the mutual respect and learning experiences that our engagements have produced.” AFAFRICA has conducted engagements with 36 nations on the African continent since the command stood up at Ramstein nearly four years ago. The air component enabled military cooperation and capacity building for partner nation air forces and related defense capabilities. This mission will continue under U.S. Air Forces in Europe after the transfer of authority, which will also take place in conjunction with the inactivation ceremony. The mission is in good hands, the general said. “Our African partners are fortunate because they are getting the best we have to offer leading the AFAFRICA mission into the future,” Woodward said, referring to the USAFE staff and its commander, Gen. Mark A. Welsh. Woodward said AFAFRICA is handing over a mission that is increasingly crucial to nation-

al security interests. In addition to engagement, AFAFRICA has also been responsible for U.S. air operations on the continent, which have been integral to countering violent extremists. “It is important that when we take time to reflect on our success, we must also consider our commitment going forward. The mission in Africa that we have diligently executed is as critical as anything we are doing to protect the security of our nation,” she said. Citing the 2011 African air chiefs conference, Africa Partnership Flight and the AFAFRICA role in Operation Odyssey Dawn (command and control of the air campaign for enforcement of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973 to protect the Libyan people), among other accomplishments, Woodard lauded her troops for being the authors of a unique chapter in regional and Air Force history. “We brought together the largest African air chiefs conference, launched a very successful engagement vehicle on a grand scale in Africa Partnership Flight and saw the creation of the world’s newest democracy in our AOR in Libya,” she said. “We were caught up in the sweeping

democratic change of the Arab Spring, we eradicated four to 12 senior operatives on the president’s leaders of terrorism priority list and we helped the Libyan people depose Mohmar Quaddafi and saved thousands of innocent lives.” The accomplishments added to 17th Air Force’s proud history, which included its inception in Morocco in 1953 and was characterized by its contribution to protecting Western Europe during the Cold War. The 17th has operated from Ramstein and Sembach air bases from 1959 until inactivation in 1996. The most recent incarnation of 17th AF was no less significant, including leading the air campaign over Libya. During 2011’s OOD and at its height of operations, AFAFRICA numbered more than 300 members. Woodward said she was amazed at the way the Airmen of 17th AF worked as a team. “When one person was asked to step up, they all did. When something needed to be done or someone needed a helping hand, everyone offered. And when one was successful, we all were. Everyone was ready to do their part. One person’s success was everyone’s success,” she said. “Seventeenth Air Force is one extraordinary team.” She went on to say that 17th AF was embraced and enabled by AFRICOM Commander Gen. Carter Ham, USAFE, 3rd Air Force and internally by great leaders like 17th AF Command Chief Master Sgt. Mike Grimm. “Our family members were an important part of that team, supporting their loved ones through all of the TDYs and long hours, making it possible for them to serve,” the general said. The unit’s mascot and the focus of its winged horse heritage — the Pegasus — was especially relevant for 17th AF’s most recent log entries into the annals of Air Force history, Woodward said. “It is because the incredible members of the 17th aimed so high, that 17th Air Force will forever fly, fight and win proudly in the pages of Air Force history,” she said. “These last four years and these achievements will forever exemplify our Airman’s creed to fly, fight and win in the history of our great Air Force.”

Ramstein A&FRC offers pre-separation counseling Are you transitioning from the military to the civilian life and workforce? Are you ready? The idea of leaving the military and starting a completely new chapter in your life can be very complex, confusing and stressful. With the right information and adequate planning, however, this transition can also be very exciting. Your first stop in the transition process is to attend pre-separation counseling. Not only is it Congressionally mandated that all service members receive this counseling (not less than 90 days prior to discharge), it is also

provided to ensure you are aware of all the benefits and services available to you. The briefing also motivates you to begin thinking about the many work and family life issues you and your family should consider before departing active duty. During the counseling, you will use a checklist and be guided through a variety of topics, including employment assistance, education and training, health and life insurance, finances, and veteran’s benefits. You will be presented with available resources and information that provide you with options and help you make informed decisions

about the choices for you and your family. Pre-separation counseling sessions are available every Thursday at 1 p.m. through the Ramstein Airmen & Family Readiness Center. If you are within 24 months of retirement or 12 months of separating from the military, now is the time for you and your spouse to attend this briefing. If you are possibly being separated or retired because you have been selected for Force Shaping programs, pending legal actions, having trouble passing your physical fitness test, or have been referred to the medical board, now is

the time to attend this briefing. There are many areas to consider and much information to absorb. You need time to plan and decide what is in the best interest for you and your family. The A&FRC is committed to helping Airmen and their families prepare for the transition to civilian life. Call 480-5100/5900 to register for pre-separation counseling and/or to speak to a community readiness consultant.

Finding the right mix Kaiserslautern Soldier debuts first single Story and photo by Mindy Campbell U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern The life of Zyon Ras Tafari Gooden has many different stories. There’s an early chapter about a boy whose mother fled violence in Kingston, Jamaica, and settled her family in Brooklyn, N.Y. Then, there’s the chapter of a dedicated Soldier who’s been in the Army nearly 18 years. A warrant officer, wounded in Afghanistan, Gooden now serves with the Army’s 19th Battlefield Coordination Detachment on Ramstein. Now, there’s new chapter Gooden is writing — that of a rising recording star. “Everything that is in my music is me,” Gooden said. “I write the songs. I produce the songs. I engineer the songs. I record the songs in my own studio.” On March 16, Gooden released his first official single “Lyrical Murdera” through several online distribution sites. His style is a blend of rap and Jamaican dance hall music. The long road… Gooden is not an overnight sensation. He labored long and hard at his dream. “To be successful you have to work it,” Gooden said. Back in Brooklyn, in middle school, Gooden learned dancing, martial arts and the violin. A neighbor was a famous New York disc jockey and Gooden would listen to hip-hop and rap artists who came over to freestyle. “I was always into music and wrote poetry,” he said. “One day, I asked him if he thought I could turn my poetry into rap. He showed me how.” He tried for time to do American-style rap, but it wasn’t working. “I couldn’t really conform to the traditional dance hall style or American rap,” he said. “I said, ‘Let me see if I can mix a version of rap and Patois,’ which is a form of broken British English, similar to American ebonics. I am the only person that does it.” Lyrics come from personal experience and tell the story of his life and beliefs. “Rap music was developed as ghetto news,” Gooden said. “Whatever was going on in your life or what you saw on TV that bothered you from an emotional standpoint, you rapped about. Today’s great artists like Adele sing from the hurt they feel and people can identify with that. That’s what I do. Most of my music comes to me in my dreams. I say whatever is on my mind. I turn on my mic and let my spirit come out in words.” As his military career has progressed, Gooden took his act from Fayetteville, N.C., to Hawaii, where he performed, made contacts and learned the music business. “If you want to be a part of this industry, you learn about this industry,” Gooden said. “You don’t rein-

vent the wheel. You learn from people’s mistakes. What did they do to make themselves successful? I am not going to go to Iraq without learning about what language they speak, what their culture is like, what the geography is like. Same thing applies — I am not going to jump into this industry and not know the layout of my enemies.” The making of a hit… In 2009, when Gooden moved to Germany, he continued making contacts and performing. His two previously-released mix tapes were played in Germany, Switzerland and France, he said. “Clubs started playing it and asking me to do shows,” he said. “DJs were playing my music because they saw the crowd react to it. The crowd went crazy and said it was something they had never heard before.” One day, Gooden heard a dance hall rhythm online that he liked and wrote “Lyrical Murdera.” Gooden called Nico, aka Red Cat, the Paris-based rhythm producer, who gave Gooden his blessing. In recent e-mails, Nico said he’s impressed with Gooden’s style. “Lots of people just copy what is going on in the U.S., sometimes without enough musical background,” Nico said. “When I hear Zyon, I feel that he has a large spectrum of influences — hip-hop from different periods, reggae, dance hall. It is a fresh mix. This is a sound that I miss nowadays and I really enjoyed to hear it again, especially on my song.” Dominique Ludwig, a German singer who has worked with Gooden on several songs, is impressed with Gooden’s ability and passion. “You can feel he has that never-ending passion for his craft, which he puts into his music, and along with stories about his life, good or bad,” she said. “He’s capable of grabbing people’s attention and making them not just hear, but actually listen to what he’s saying in his songs.” Ludwig thinks “Lyrical Murdera” will be a big hit. “It is already heavily requested in certain areas, and the song is too catchy to not get major recognition in the music business,” she said. Through social media sites like Facebook, Gooden has grown his fan base and promoted his music, especially his new single. After “Lyrical Murdera,” Gooden plans to “stay relevant,” he said, by releasing new songs online and circulate a musical video recently shot in Munich. “I am doing it because I love doing it,” Gooden said. “Of course, the dream is to be successful at it. When it actually starts happening, you are like, ‘Did I just get a call from a record label?’” Singing Soldier… At times, the military dampened Gooden’s musical dreams. Deployments have caused him to lose two potential recording contracts, Gooden said. “You get out of the scene for a year, they forget who you are,” Gooden said. “I wasn’t a topic anymore.” Despite setbacks, Gooden credits the Army with

helping support his musical dreams. “I wouldn’t be this successful if I wasn’t in the military,” Gooden said. “The military provides me the capital, the drive, the professionalism. Even though things get hard, I keep going because I want to accomplish the mission.” In the beginning, Gooden tried to keep both his Army life and musical career separate. “I didn’t want the two to conflict,” he said. “I didn’t want the stigma of being a rap or reggae artist to hinder my professional reputation.” But recently, Gooden has seen the two merge as his musical career takes off. Col. Stephen J. Maranian, Gooden’s commander at the 19th BCD, has been very supportive. Maranian knows Gooden’s music is an important part of who he is. “To be well balanced and fit, we need relationships, activities and interests in our lives from outside the military as well as from within,” Maranian said. “When Soldiers show a passion and ability in one of these areas, it’s important that unit leaders are supportive.” Gooden’s Army technical experience — information technology — has also helped his musical career, Maranian said. “In addition to singing, there are tremendous technical requirements to produce and package his music,” Maranian said. “I think the knowledge of computers and software that he has acquired in the Army has helped him greatly.” The Army served as an important role in Gooden’s life, he said, and he takes his military career as serious as his music. “You have to be focused on two levels at the same time,” Gooden said. “That can be stressful, but I love what I do on both sides.”

The deployed members will directly support the commander of the International Security Assistance Force and coalition leadership while war efforts continue in Afghanistan. Squadron members and their families were invited for a send-off breakfast in the squadron’s heritage room, hosted by volunteers of the 76th AS and their spouse group. The 86th Operations Group commander, Col. William Ward, was in attendance on behalf of the 86th Airlift Wing commander, Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde. After the meal, farewells were exchanged and the

The 76th Airlift Squadron said goodbye March 29 in “Fightin’ Dove” style to 10 of the squadron’s finest pilots, flight engineers, communication system operators and flight attendants as they departed for a rotational deployment to Afghanistan. More than 50 squadron and family members gathered in formation and rendered a salute while a Gulfstream IV C-20H taxied for takeoff to commence their deployed service.

deploying members stepped to their aircraft to load the last of their baggage and equipment. Deployment Commander Lt. Col. Todd Staudt led his crew of 10 in last minute preparations for takeoff, followed by motivational farewell speeches from Ward and Lt. Col. Tony Schenk, 76th AS Squadron commander. “It’s an extreme source of pride for our squadron to directly support the war effort, and we have the duty and honor to ensure (the mission)

is done well,” Schenk said. As the roar of the C-20 engines started, more than 50 squadron and family members gathered in formation and rendered a salute while the aircraft taxied for takeoff to commence their three month deployed service. As the squadron prepares to support the deployed members’ families, all of them anticipate the return of their loved ones in early July.

Retiree Activities Office: Ramstein Airmen take part in Where we are now? fire officer course in England A review of the Air Force instruction and the persistence of a few have reignited the establishment of an open office for the military retired community. Right after Veteran’s Day 2011, a retired Air Force senior master sergeant and a retired Army staff sergeant decided to re-open the office from Tuesday to Thursday. They would only stand up the office if there was 100 percent support from the 86th Airlift Wing Commander and his staff, which they received with more continued support. As a result of the feedback from numerous surveys, RAO recognizes the need to be open and to continue to serve. And, as recommended by the wing commander, they have included those still in uniform as they get ready to retire. RAO is located in Bldg. 2106 across the street from Service Credit Union. Enter the north entrance at the ID card and passport section, and you will find them on the third floor in Room 310A. RAO is open from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can call them at 06371-47-5486 or 480-5486. You can leave a message and RAO members will get back with you as soon as possible. Leave your name and a good contact number for them to call. You can also e-mail them at 86aw.rao@ ramstein.af.mil. RAO can be found on under “Retiree Activities Office” on the Ramstein official website at www.ramstein.af.mil. They provide contact information as well as their quarterly newsletter on this page. If you do not contact RAO and fill out a survey form, this is the last time you will hear from RAO. In the future, they will contact only retirees with a survey form on file in their office.

by Senior Airman Rachel Waller 100th Air Refueling Wing Public Affairs RAF MILDENHALL, England — Airmen and Ministry of Defence employees from bases across the U.K. and Germany attended the Fire Officer II Course here March 27 through April 12. Through classroom instruction and tabletop exercises, the students from Royal Air Force Mildenhall, RAF Menwith Hill, RAF Alconbury, RAF Croughton, RAF Lakenheath and Ramstein Air Base learned about command and control of emergency incidents. The course was taught by a mobile team of instructors from the Louis F. Garland Department of Defense Fire Academy at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas. Master Sgt. Matthew Luetkemeyer, 100th Civil Engineer Squadron assistant chief of fire training, said this course is the second of four courses in the fire officer courses related to command and control within the fire department. “The Fire Officer II Course is going to prepare our NCOs and civilians to move up the chain in the fire department, transitioning from crew chiefs and engine captains to eventually becoming assistant fire chiefs and station captains,” he said. Matt Simmons, Louis F. Garland Fire Academy fire instructor, said the instruction team brought with them lesson plans and study

guides for students that the attendees would have received if they took the class at the academy. “We also brought our command and control simulator,” Simmons said. “On the simulator we can show an emergency incident on the (projector) screen of either a facility or aircraft. We can add smoke, fire and sound so it’s like you’re really on the scene of an emergency but through visual media.” Luetkemeyer said all of the materials helped the students learn different aspects of managing emergencies, how to assign tasks and how to coordinate efforts in emergency situations. A couple of the students highlighted some of the benefits to taking the course. “The course will help my career advancement and help me gain a better perspective on how a chief officer works,” said Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Ivey, 100th CES fire department crew chief. Kristian Hillier, 421st Civil Engineer Squadron fire department training officer, RAF Menwith Hill, said one of the benefits for him was the sense of camaraderie between the military and civilians. “The camaraderie between the military and civilian sides has been excellent,” Hillier said. “We’ve worked together well and it’s nice to see the two sides of the house can integrate exceptionally well.” “It has been a great opportunity to have the instructors from Goodfellow AFB here to teach this course,” Luetkemeyer said. “The cost savings alone is a huge savings for us.”

Airman & Family Readiness Center Focus Point by Martine Morris Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center This week I would like to focus on two programs: Ramstein Caring for People focus groups: This event is sponsored by the Ramstein Integrated Delivery System. This event is open to all members of the KMC and registration is not required.

This is an opportunity for community members to address any issues and concerns they might have. There will be six focus groups: family support, deployment support, spouse communication, health and wellness, school support and single Airmen. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday at the Ramstein School Age Program. For more informa-

tion, call the A&FRC at 4805100 or 06371-47-5100. Prepaid phone drop: The start-up costs of moving to a new location can be exorbitant and families frequently feel pressured to make decisions about where to live, what Internet and cell phone companies to subscribe to, etc. We want to implement a new service to our commu-

nity by asking Airmen and family members to bring their prepaid cell phones to the Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center. We all remember what a relief it was to finally have a phone and to be able to call family members in the states. Many of our families have financial burdens due to the PCS, and our goal would be to provide them with a

means to communicate with their friends, families and unit members prior to making a long-term commitment to a phone service. If you are no longer using your prepaid phone, remove all personal information and bring the phone, charger and number to the A&FRC. For more information, call the A&FRC at 480-5100 or 06371-47-5100.

21st TSC chaplain helps Soldiers better themselves Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Michael J. Taylor 21st TSC Public Affairs GRAFENWÖHR, Germany — At first glance, he blends in well with a slightly rugged look, tall and fibrous, wearing airborne wings, an air assault badge and a ranger tab. He has a commanding voice and comes fully loaded with all the characteristics of a hard-core Soldier. Up close he emits welcoming, un-judgmental and kind qualities, and it doesn’t take long to see that this Soldier is indeed a man of faith. The youngest of seven children, Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Matthew P. Pawlikowski, the deputy command chaplain for the 21st Theater Sustainment Command in Kaiserslautern, realized his calling to the priesthood as a young boy, but he never imagined the spiritual path he decided to follow would take him on the adventure of his life. “I grew up knowing the Lord, and early on I had indications that I was called to the priesthood,” said Pawlikowski, a native of Secaucus, N.J. “When I was in high school I was looking at where to go for college, thinking of getting myself set up for seminary and really the only places that held interest for me were military academies.” Feeling confused about why he was drawn to the military instead of the priesthood, Pawlikowski turned to God for answers. “I thought I was called to be a priest, and it seemed like the Lord was leading me into the military. So I prayed about it, and that’s what I ended up doing,” Pawlikowski said. “It seemed like that’s what God wanted for me at the time.” Pawlikowski was commissioned as an infantry officer after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1986. Following his commission he spent six years in the infantry where he served in Korea, Fort Benning, Ga., and Fort Bragg, N.C. “A lot of times people ask me, ‘How did you end up becoming a priest when you were an infantry officer?’ And, really, I think the correct question is, ‘How did I end up becoming an infantry officer when I was already moving to become a priest?” said the 48-year-old chaplain. “The answer to both questions is the same. I went where God led me.” With an infantry background, Pawlikowski

learned things about the military that would later help him during his chaplaincy. “Being in the infantry first, helped me in two different ways. One, as a chaplain having an infantry background it gives me some knowledge of the rest of the military outside the chaplaincy and that helps me to connect to people better,” said Pawlikowski, who was one of four honor graduates in his ranger class. “As far as the hooah badges, the airborne wings and the ranger tab, that gets me a lot of credibility with Soldiers. “But I think on a deeper level, God was using the Army to shape me as a man in a very fundamental way,” he continued. “Specifically in the development of physical and moral courage and toughness, which I think are things a priest is supposed to have.” Following his time in the infantry, Pawlikowski spent eight years as a chaplain candidate, and it wasn’t until July 2000 that he officially became a military chaplain. As a chaplain, he has served in

places such as Fort Bragg, N.C., Fort Jackson, S.C., Egypt, Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., West Point and Afghanistan. Pawlikowski said he has many goals but his No. 1 goal is to help Soldiers feel better about themselves mentally as well as spiritually. “As I meet Soldiers, as I say Mass for them, as I hear their confessions, even if they’re not Catholic, as I am dealing with them in any different way, I am always trying to help them become the best version of themselves. That’s certainly my No. 1 goal,” Pawlikowski added. From realizing his calling as a young boy, receiving a commission as an infantry officer and graduating ranger, jump and air assault school, to becoming an ordained Catholic priest, this hard-core Soldier continues to follow his calling. “I feel great when God uses me as an instrument to help Soldiers,” Pawlikowski said. “That is how I see my life as a priest. I’m a tool; I’m just a wedge or chisel in the hand of God, and anytime he decides to pick me up and use me I am delighted.”

Young people learn life skills through D.A.R.E. Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Juggling red balloons symbolized life’s many challenges during graduation for a Drug Abuse Resistance Education program held recently at Wilson Barracks in Landstuhl. Fifth-graders helped Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, juggle several red balloons. A blue balloon was tossed in, representing drugs and alcohol, to show the difficulty of keeping life’s balloons aloft with an added impairment. Spontaneously, Zetterstrom tapped the blue balloon to the floor and popped it with his desert-colored combat boot. “I saw that it represented something bad,” Zetterstrom said. “Stomping it out was the right thing to do.” Lessons like that are what the D.A.R.E. program is about. Since 1983, D.A.R.E. has taught millions of students worldwide about the effects of alcohol and drugs. Each April, “National D.A.R.E. Day” is commemorated in the U.S. by a presidential proclamation, community events and activities. This year, it was commemorated on April 9. In the KMC’s four elementary schools, students completed 10 lessons over several weeks, working from D.A.R.E. planners. Weekly lessons often included acting out skits on peer pressure and watching videos about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

Students from Landstuhl Elementary School help Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, juggle red balloons that symbolized life challenges during a recent D.A.R.E. program graduation.

Landstuhl’s graduating class was the first for Army Sgt. Raymond Engstrom, a garrison military police officer, who instructed the students. The thought of facing children in classrooms each week was daunting at first. Yet, Engstrom knew the importance of D.A.R.E. discussions and began enjoying the classes. “You learn to have fun with it,” he said. “They’re just young people. I

always refrain from calling them kids or students. I’d say ‘people about your age.’” Over the past few months, Engstrom has developed significantly, said his supervisor, Sgt. 1st Class Adrian Rouse, the provost marshal operations sergeant. “He’s ran with it,” Rouse said. “Now he’s very interactive with the kids, parents and school staff. And I think he enjoys it significantly.”

During the graduation, held at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center’s Heaton Auditorium, Zetterstrom said he was proud to see an Army noncommissioned officer leading the D.A.R.E. program “We’re Americans living overseas. We want our children to have the best education possible,” Zetterstrom said. “Learning is not always about academics; it’s about life skills and that’s what D.A.R.E. does.”

Airman’s Attic holds grand re-opening by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Airman’s Attic held a grand re-opening April 4 after moving to their new location near the southside barbershop on Ramstein. “The Airman’s Attic is a place for Airmen, E-5 and below, to come out and get items they may need,” said Master Sgt. Robert Colter, chairman for the Airman’s Attic. “We’re just here to provide them free items to get them started.” “Airmen don’t get paid a lot. That’s the reality of today’s world,” Colter said. “Especially when you have a family as an A1C, like I did. Sometimes you don’t have the extra money at the end of the month to go get a coffee maker or a clothing item you may need.” Searching for a new location took time, but was needed due to limited space. “About a year ago, we started looking for more space because our original spot was only 700 square feet,”

Hot off the grill Sembach serves up tasty food Story and photo by Mindy Campbell U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern During the lunchtime hustle, two cooks acted out a culinary choreography of sorts. As one slid up to a sizzling grill, the other dropped fries into bubbling oil and set lettuce and tomatoes on waiting buns. Tony Burks and Eric Shepherd, cooks at the Sembach Bowling Alley, don’t consider themselves to be chefs. But, they will argue that they grill some of the best burgers in U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern. Sembach Kaserne, previously a U.S. Air Force base, became an Army post in 2010. Since then, garrison leaders work to improve Soldiers’ quality of life. Better food for Soldiers and family members is part of that effort. That’s how Burks and Shepherd recently found themselves at the Culinary Institute of America’s San Antonio campus, taking a one-week course on quick food service. “I never claim to be a chef, but my skills have greatly increased,” said Burks, who’s worked at Sembach since 2005. Last year, the Army began a chef development program to improve food quality at Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation eateries. Training included classroom and hands-on experience.

Tony Burks and Eric Shepherd, cooks at the Sembach Bowling Alley, don’t consider themselves to be chefs. But, they will argue that they grill some of the best burgers in U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern.

While Burks was at first unsure of the Army’s reasoning — sending short order cooks to a stateside culinary school — he found the class intense and rewarding, he said. “After going to the school and coming back, I think it has helped both of us a lot to make it easier here and to give better quality service to our customers and a more tasty product,” Burks said. Beforehand, Shepherd was not enthusiastic about cooking, he said. Now, he thinks differently. “It was intense at times, but it was a great great learning experience,” Shepherd said. “Now, I am not a chef. But, I love to cook and I am a good cook.” The men came back with great new skills, said Leo Kosley, the

bowling alley manager. “I see a marked difference from before they went,” said Kosley, who noted the training increased speed and improved food preparation. During a recent community radio broadcast, Lt. Col. Lars Zetterstrom, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, announced that Sembach’s bowling alley will also start offering new menu items on Monday. “They will have daily specials that will have low cost and healthy meals options,” Zetterstrom said. As Sembach doesn’t have a dining facility, many Soldiers, like Spc. Marcus Burks, of the 230th Military Police Company, often eat meals at the bowling alley. “I pretty much have eaten every-

thing on the menu,” Burks said. “My favorite is the biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Then, the burger and fries will get you through the rest of the day. I love it.” Brian Davis, whose wife works at the 212th Combat Support Hospital on Miesau, also eats at the bowling alley regularly. “It has a great atmosphere here,” Davis said. “They also have a great variety on their menu. I can’t believe more people don’t utilize it here.” Lt. Col. Jeffrey J. Giannola, the 18th Military Police Brigade chaplain, also enjoys the service at the bowling alley. He thinks the cooks make all the difference. “They are very good cooks and they are nice people and that’s important,” Giannola said. “It means a lot.”

Freinsheim holds blossom fest

by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Freinsheim will celebrate its annual blossom fest under the motto, “Cooking, Arts, Wine,” Saturday and Sunday. The wine growing community will present the new season’s wines and visitors will have the opportunity to talk to vintners. The I-Punkt Freinsheim (tourist information office) and participating wineries will sell wine passes for €10. This pass will authorize visitors to taste the offered wines on both days. Surrounded by an ocean of blossoms, visitors will find a large diversity of culinary specialties, wines and art items throughout the medieval town. Food specialties will include pancakes with spinach and sheeps cheese, prime boiled beef with horseradish sauce, salmon rolls with salad, pork filet with asparagus, oriental turkey rolls with rice, Thai food, and cakes. Wine Princess Pia and a local band will officially open the fest at 11:30 a.m. on both days at the historical town hall. Guided hiking tours along the trails with trees in blossom will follow right after the official opening at 1 p.m. Wagon rides with Haflinger horses are scheduled to start at noon from the Kreuzhof winery.

Bands will provide musical entertainment in different locations. The arts studio in Buschhof will display modern arts and serve Mediterranean food. Various artists will show off their works and paintings in some of the wineries. Children can have fun in a carnival set up in Weisenheimer Strasse near the iron gate. The Baroque garden will invite visitors to take a walk along the medieval town wall. The town wall was built in the 15th century. After the town came under the domination of the electoral palatinate in 1471, the new authorities errected the current walls. With the iron gate, construction of the fortification came to an end in 1514. Until the beginning of the 19th century, only two gates led out of town. Besides the two town gates, the iron gate in the east and the Hain gate in the southwest, about 20 towers were established within the walls. Today, five towers are left. It is known as one of the nicest and most complete town fortification facilities in the Pfalz. To get to Freinsheim, travel on autobahn A6 direction Mannheim; take the Grünstadt exit; follow the signs to Kirchheim, Dackenheim and Freinsheim.

On the road to success Story and photo by Sarahjane Phillips USAG Kaiserslautern Army Community Service, Marketing t’s common to find adult education classes. What’s not so common is to find a curriculum that offers classes for parents and their children. This past week, 30 adults and 14 youth ages 3 to 12 successfully completed a 12-week course on self improvement and financial stability. “Financial Peace University,” offered to adults, and “Fun with Finances,” offered to youth, was cohosted by the Kaiserslautern Chaplains Office and Army Community Service. U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern is the only garrison to offer a special sub-class for the youth, which parallels the adult course. “It’s great that the children get to learn the same things as the parents because it promotes an overall stability and strengthens the family bond when everyone participates in financial decisions,” said youth instructor Charlene Sanchez-Licciardi. The adults and children both learned about saving versus spending, information on insurance with an emphasis on protection, comparison shopping, needs versus wants, and a special portion dedicated to the importance of giving back. The motto that was practiced throughout the

Occupational therapy celebrates rich history April is Occupational Therapy Month and the 65th anniversary of the addition of occupational therapy to the Army Medical Specialist Corps. The anniversary marks the service of military medicine occupational therapists who have deployed in every major U.S. conflict since World War I. Occupational therapists and occupational assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). OT interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services may include evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school, hospital), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. OT practitioners have a holistic perspective in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. At Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, occupational therapists provide a wide range of services to U.S. and coalition forces, family members, and other government employees. Often, LRMC is one of the first places to treat injured service members from downrange. Occupational therapists provide therapy for individuals who have been admitted to the hospital, inpatient behavioral health groups, outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation and outpatient traumatic brain injury services. Therapists see individuals who

are referred through other health care providers. Individuals are thoroughly evaluated to determine the need for therapeutic intervention. They have a long and storied past in providing these services. The civilian forbearers of Army OT performed mental health rehabilitation starting in the first part of the 19th century, and the profession began to include physical rehabilitation in the 20th century. To assist with the hundreds of thousands of wounded troops during World War I, the Surgeon General’s Office created the Division of Special Hospitals and Physical Reconstruction on Aug. 22, 1917. In March 1918, OT was categorized as “all therapeutic work except physical therapy.” Occupational therapists, a workforce that was comprised of civilian women, were known as reconstruction aides. Most OT aides worked on hospital wards and “high qualities of character and skill in handicrafts were the early (skill) requirements.” On July 31, 1918, the War Department approved a plan for “reconstruction of the disabled men of the Army.” OT aides began training “the sick and wounded in the arts and handicrafts and in academic and commercial studies” and also began “to apply massage, thermo-, electro- and local hydrotherapy.” There was a significant drawdown of the OT workforce after the war and a transition to the civilian sector. World War II brought about an increased need for and a further advancement of the profession of OT. At the start of World War II, there were only eight occupational therapists and four assistants working in Army hospitals. By the end of the war on Aug. 15, 1945, there were 899 OTs and trainees in 76 hospitals. In December 1944, the “Technical Manual on Occupational Therapy” was published by the War

Department, documenting and helping to standardize current OT practices. On April 16, 1947, Public Law 36 was approved by the 80th Congress, establishing the Women’s Medical Specialist Corps. This law provided OTs with regular commission status. One of the requirements at the time was: “Applicant must be in an unmarried status with no dependents under the age of 14 years.” During the course of World War II, male corpsmen were assigned to OT to help limit personnel shortages and provide protection from aggressive patients. This most likely provided an opportunity for inclusion of assistants and aides from the civilian sector as well. The need for this profession’s connection with the Army continued to expand in future conflicts. As the U.S. involvement in the Korean War grew, there was yet another increase in need for therapists to rehabilitate wounded Soldiers. In 1955, with the inclusion of commissioned male occupational therapists in the Army, Public Law 84-294 changed the title of the Women’s Medical Specialist Corps to the Army Medical Specialist Corps. Army occupational therapists have deployed in every major U.S. conflict in the subsequent 50 years, including the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. They have also served in many humanitarian missions, establishing themselves as force multipliers in the rehabilitation and injury prevention arena. For more information, LRMC OT will have an open house from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Bldg. 3770, Wing 12A, in the main hospital. (Courtesy of LRMC Public Affairs)

Sleep keeps you, your unit Army strong by Kira M. Koon U.S. Army Public Health Command Sleep is often thought of as a luxury that falls by the wayside when we are busy and stressed. However, getting enough sleep is one of the most important things you can do to be “Army Strong.” Sleep is a necessity to sustain your performance — just like food, water and air. The effects of sleep deprivation can sneak up on you and cause a serious decrease in your ability to stay sharp. Some common consequences of sleep deprivation include decreased performance and concentration, increased stress, slow reaction times, confusion, memory lapses, and poor judgment. Inadequate sleep is also linked with increased risk of motor vehicle accidents, increased risk of diabetes and heart problems, and increased risk for psychiatric conditions including depression and substance abuse. In other words, without enough sleep, you put both yourself and your fellow Soldiers at risk. For optimal performance, most

Soldiers need seven to eight hours of sleep every 24 hours, and it is best if this sleep is not interrupted. However, as a Soldier, you might not be able to have seven hours of continuous sleeping time each day. In such cases, shorter sleep periods that add up to between seven and eight hours for each 24-hour period can also sustain alertness and performance. Getting quality sleep depends on many factors, including your stress levels, the surrounding physical environment and what you eat, drink and do close to bedtime. Sleep experts recommend following these tips: Stick to a sleep schedule. As much as possible, go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. Establish a relaxing routine before bed. Give yourself time to unwind. A relaxing routine might include reading or listening to soothing music and lowering the lights. Have a dark, quiet, comfortable and cool sleeping environment. Don’t

sleep in areas where there is regular activity. If needed, minimize exposure to noise and light by using ear plugs, blackout shades or a sleep mask. Avoid large meals and beverages right before bedtime. A light snack is OK, but avoid large meals and too many fluids two to three hours prior to bedtime. A large meal can cause indigestion that interferes with sleep. Drinking too many fluids can have you running for the bathroom in the middle of the night. Avoid caffeine and nicotine. Coffee, colas, certain teas and chocolate contain caffeine, and its effects can last for eight hours. Nicotine is also a stimulant and can cause smokers to sleep only very lightly. Avoid alcoholic drinks before bed. While many people think a drink or two will help them fall asleep, alcohol actually prevents you from falling into a deep sleep. Avoid medicines that delay or dis-

rupt your sleep. Some medications, such as heart, blood pressure or asthma medications, and over-the-counter and herbal remedies for coughs, colds or allergies, can disrupt sleep patterns. If you are having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor first before taking any medication. Exercise is great, but not before bed. Avoid exercising within a few hours before going to bed. Exercise makes us more alert and raises body temperature, which makes it harder to fall asleep. Don’t lay in bed awake. If you find yourself still awake after lying in bed for more than 20 minutes, get up and do something relaxing (like reading or listening to music) until you feel sleepy. Talk to your doctor if you continue to have trouble sleeping. If you continue to find yourself feeling tired and not alert, talk to your doctor. An underlying health problem might be affecting your sleep.

Top 10 reasons I admire military kids by Elaine Sanchez American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — In honor of April’s Month of the Military Child, I created a Top 10 list of the qualities I most appreciate about children from military families. Their amazing service and sacrifice deserve a much longer list, but I figured this would at least be a start. This is what I most appreciate about children from military families:

10. Their sense of humor. Navy wife Vivian Greentree’s sons pasted pictures of their deployed dad on a stick, dubbed it a “dad on a stick” and took it everywhere with them. Her son, MJ, even asked if “dad on a stick” could help make macaroni and cheese. He carefully placed the following message to his dad under the picture of his mac and cheese preparation: “We’ll eat mac and cheese when you get home. You can use my Spiderman bowl.” 9.

They selflessly serve their community. Military children possess a strong sense of service — perhaps modeled after their military dads and moms who serve and sacrifice daily. But whatever its origin, they don’t hesitate to step up at school, at home and in their communities. James Nathaniel Richards, the fifth of six children in his military family, took on a host of deploymentrelated challenges when his Navy father and three of his brothers deployed at the same time. But rather than focus on the separation, the 9-year-old started a blog to help other military children deal with deployments and separations. He also heads up the anti-bullying committee at his school, and has clocked more than 200 hours as a United Service Organizations volunteer.

8. They stand by their military parent through thick and thin. I met a high school senior who told me his father would miss his graduation and his departure to college. But this teen wasn’t upset in the least. “He loves to be a Soldier, and if it makes him happy, it makes me happy,” he said. “How can I possibly complain that he’s not watching me graduate when he’s out there sacrificing for our nation.” 7. Their sense of patriotism. Zachary Laychak was 9 years old when his father was killed on Sept. 11, 2001, when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon. Zachary struggled over the years with anger and confusion over the incident. But as time passed, his initial anger evolved into a deep sense of patriotism — born of resentment against those who dared to attack his nation and his family. “As terrible as this whole situation was, I know he was a very patriotic person,” Zachary said of his father, that he died serving his country. “That’s a way he would have been proud to go.” 6. They support each other. Two California teenagers, Moranda Hern and Kaylei Deakin, were

inspired to create the Sisterhood of the Traveling BDUs after they dealt with their National Guard dads’ deployments. They didn’t want other military daughters to feel what they did: alone. Their organization is intended to unite, inspire and lead girls with parents in the military.

5. Their adaptability. I attended a high school graduation at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., last year. The class included nine students from Defense Department high schools in Japan who had left with their families in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. Although they had entered a new school and a new senior class just a few months shy of graduation, they were all smiles that day as they talked to me in their caps and gowns. A transition that would have thrown the best of us for a loop didn’t seem to phase these teens, who had already been through more changes in their 18 years than most people see in a lifetime. The students in that class had moved, on average, more than six times with one student tallying up a total of 18 moves in the same number of years. 4. Their compassion. A number of kids have military parents who return home wounded, some with visible wounds and others with less-evident injuries, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury. These kids immediately step up to help out at home — taking on additional chores, pitching in to babysit — during their parent’s recovery. Taylor Dahl-Sims’ Marine Corps stepfather returned home from his fifth deployment with a traumatic brain injury and Taylor stepped in to help during his recovery. She already was helping her mother with her baby brother’s medical care. Many wounded warriors have told me their children don’t look at them any differently, even if their wounds are severe. They are simply grateful their mom or dad made it back alive. 3.

Their global knowledge. Many military kids

have traveled across the nation and around the world. They have an innate appreciation for cultural diversity and knowledge of world events that most kids who never crossed state lines would be hardpressed to match. This will serve them well in the future as modern technology and the rise of a global economy increase the likelihood they’ll be exposed to people of different cultures and backgrounds in their careers. “These children come to us with broadened perspectives and a broad range of experiences,” said Marilee Fitzgerald, director of the Department of Defense Education Activity. “They’re the closest to being a global citizen that this world will have.”

2. Their strength. They’ve dealt with a decade of war and multiple deployments, with the associated worry and fear. But these challenges also have equipped them with a resilience that will prepare them for life’s setbacks and hardships. The first lady summed it up well at an event in June. “A bad grade on a test, a bad day at work, that’s not going to knock you off your game,” she said, “because from a very young age, you all have been dealing with the big stuff, and that’s given you perspective.” 1. They serve, too. Their military parent signed on the dotted line. Their children did not. Yet, they must deal with deployments, frequent moves and school transitions, and they do so with courage and grace. As a nation, we owe them a debt of gratitude. This month, and year-round, we should take time to let military children know how grateful we are for their service, said Barbara Thompson, director of military community and family policy, children and youth. “One of the things that’s disconcerting is we know that 1 percent of our population is in uniform and is serving, and the other 99 percent of the country takes full benefit of that,” she said. “We owe it to our children to honor them and to protect them.”

Ramstein basketball team wins another championship by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Ramstein Rams beat the Lakenheath Eagles 84-78 in the U.S. Forces in Europe basketball tournament held Sunday on Ramstein. The Rams finished the season at 73-3, winning all seven Air Force and Army tournaments held throughout the year, becoming the first Ramstein team to accomplish both milestones. “We were trailing 49-32 at halftime and went on a 38-21 run over the first 14:12 of the second half to tie the game at 70,” said Wesley Jordan, Ramstein Rams team captain. “The lead switched hands a few times before Felton Scott hit a contested 15-foot turnaround jump shot with a couple minutes to play. “He hit one of two free throws … to put us up by one,” Jordan said. “Then, Cedric Thomas stole the ball in the backcourt and converted a layup for an 81-78 lead, which we extended to the final margin of 84-78 with free throws.” The Rams were able to win the tournament due to the work put in over the season.

A member of the Lakenheath Eagles sprints for the basket during the championship game of the U.S. Forces in Europe basketball tournament April 8 on Ramstein. The Lakenheath Eagles were defeated by the Ramstein Rams 84-78.

“As a team, we’ve worked extremely hard for months now with one goal in mind, to win this championship,” Jordan said. “We won six tournaments in a row leading up to it and had to face adversity throughout, so I was proud of our guys for the heart and determination we showed.” Team Ramstein faced tough opponents throughout the season, but always managed to come out on top. “The competition was fierce during

this tournament,” said Kevan Sutton, Ramstein Rams head coach. “Over the course of regular season and tournament play we noticed that we continually got our opponent’s best effort, which set the stage for amazing games and finishes all year long. The championship game on Sunday versus Lakenheath was no exception.” For Jordan and his teammates, losing wasn’t an option in

the championship game. “It was a very physical and competitive game. Each guy out there wanted to win badly,” he said. “Both teams knew each other’s strengths so it was tough to execute on offense. We have a lot of respect for them and they bring out the best in us.” The Eagles were able to challenge the Rams, but still came up short. “Lakenheath brought out the best in us in terms of digging deep within ourselves to pull out that victory when we were staring defeat right in the eyes,” Sutton said. “We couldn’t have played a better team. We have the utmost respect for our counterparts to the north.” For Sutton and his players, their playing style in games is simple. “Our approach to tournaments and games were relatively the same, play each game with a certain level of intensity and passion and optimum results come from that,” he said. “Our motto this year was to not let anybody down no matter what the circumstance. “There isn’t anything I or anybody else wouldn’t do for a member of this team,” he continued. “Ramstein basketball is a fraternity of men who call themselves 2012 U.S. Forces in Europe champions.”
