Universal language breaks barriers Story and photos by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs With many languages around the world, communication can be a challenge between nations. One group of Airmen make it easier with the use of an international language — music. The U.S. Air Forces in Europe Band Touch ’n Go ensemble works to spread joy and raise morale for audiences in deployed countries across Europe, Africa and other locations. Responsibilities range from musical support at military functions to military and community entertainment with European neighbors. “We get to use music to immediately connect with people who may not (speak the same language),” said Senior Airman Carmen Emborski, USAFE Touch ’n Go band vocalist and transportation vehicle representative. “Through music we can make that connection with countries the United States wants to build a relationship with … we can send a message to anyone of any age or cultural background while we are up on stage.” See BAND, Page 10

PrepareAthon! comes to Ramstein, builds KMC resiliency It’s the morning of Aug. 28, 2005 — people awake to sounds of faint screams and echoes of buildings collapsing. A sense of panic and fear lingers in the air as 175 mph winds and masses of water engulfed 90,000 square miles of land. Outside, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history has reached the southeast and

midwest of the continent. The hurricane eventually killed over 1,000 people and caused more than $100 billion in property damage. With natural disasters like this, it’s important to work together as individuals, families and ultimately a community to stay prepared for any possible tragedy. Although natural disasters cannot be prevented, steps can be taken to mitigate damage, injuries and possibly eliminate them altogether. The PrepareAthon! is a presiden-

tial directive for all members of the Department of Defense to participate in through drills, informational discussions and overall preparedness at home and in the workplace. This year’s focus is natural disasters. Civil Engineer Squadron emergency management Airmen, the Red Cross and the Army Office of Emergency Management are working together for Ramstein’s first PrepareAthon!.

What is an AMOW? by Col. Nancy Bozzer 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing commander



hat is an air mobility operations wing? This is a great question — the same question that I asked myself when I was selected to command this unique wing. As Air Mobility Command’s sole representative for Team Ramstein, many may think we just operate the Ramstein Passenger Terminal, but our mission consists of so much more than that. The reality is that the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing is made up of 21 units, spread across 16 countries and six different time zones, stretching more than 5,000 miles — from Lajes Field, Azores, Portugal and to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We are AMC’s gateway to Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia and we support five combatant commanders in the

process, providing four core competencies of command and control, aircraft maintenance, aerial port operations and aeromedical evacuation. Here, we provide these capabilities primarily with the C-17 Globemaster III, C-5 Galaxy and Patriot Express missions, but have the flexibility to provide support for any aircraft in the Air Force inventory. Last year alone, we airlifted 525,752 tons of cargo. That’s the equivalent to a line of bumperto-bumper Volkswagen Beetles stretching from St. Louis to New York (950 miles). We also moved 423,566 passengers (roughly the population of Miami), 4,077 aeromedical evacuation patients (11 times the number of beds at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center) and accounted for 63,353 arrivals and departures through the terminal (one every 8.3 minutes). That sounds like a mouthful, and

of worship, community based organizations, institutions of higher education and individuals and families to take action to get and stay prepared and build resiliency. “Emergencies can happen at any time in any place,” Iseminger said. “Being prepared for disasters is a shared responsibility; it takes the whole community working together to effectively prepare for, respond to and recover from the destructive forces of nature and other emergencies and disasters.” The agencies will provide information, guidance for emergency preparedness, answer questions and hand out lists of items to construct kits for homes and offices that will ensure readiness in the event of a disaster. “It’s important for individuals and families to keep a kit of supplies in case of an emergency,” Iseminger said. “Items we suggest for the kits are: food, canned and dry goods, flashlights, batteries, a severe weather radio, towels, water, hygiene items — anything you would need to sustain yourself and family for 72 hours without government assistance.

it is, but the relationships that our Airmen have built with U.S. Air Forces in Europe, our sister service and host nation partners have allowed our mission to become nearly seamless. The most recent example of this was our role in Operation United Assistance, supporting our nation’s response to the Ebola virus outbreak in Africa. All of our core competencies were put to the test during the global crisis and our wing responded with tenacity. We were instrumental in passenger and cargo handling for missions that originated out of western Africa and we provided Ebola kits to aircraft transiting the “hot zone.” Our Airmen, with the help of our teammates from each of the host wings, paved the way by working with the German, Spanish and Italian host nation representatives, ensuring proper procedures and protocol were in place for all personnel, planes and equipment leav-

The items are not really expensive and it’ll pay dividends in the long run.” Though Germany may not be a high-risk area for natural disasters, they are not unheard of. Being prepared is important because there is still a potential for a tragedy to occur. “The biggest thing here is extreme weather events have increased in frequency in the last 50 years and are expected to become more common, intense and costly,” said Airman 1st Class Robert Ridgway,

ing the Ebola designated area. In short, we defined the standard for aircrew and passengers transiting through the affected area. The 521st AMOW is truly a unique, yet vital catalyst to our nation’s rapid, global mobility mission. I could not be more proud of the amazing accomplishments our Airmen have achieved and how they do it with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. I’m proud to say our Airmen epitomize our wing’s motto of “Flexibility, Tenacity, Velocity ... DEPEND ON US!”

786th CES plans and operations. “Last year in Germany, we had a tornado. A lot of people weren’t prepared and didn’t know we could have that kind of disaster here, so some people weren’t sure what to do. Our job is to get the information out there so more people are prepared.” The cost of being prepared can be miniscule compared to the cost of damages when readiness is not made a priority. “In 2013, deadly weather caused more than $8 billion in property damage,” Ridgway said. “According to the Insurance Information Institute, an estimated 25 percent of all businesses were affected by a major disaster and never reopened. Failure to prepare for an extreme weather event cost the U.S. $1.15 trillion in economic losses from 1980 to 2010, and could cost another trillion dollars in the future.” The 786th CES emergency management Airmen, the Red Cross and the Army Office of Emergency Management aim to provide as many tools as necessary to help ensure that future loss of life and property damage are less severe than that of Hurricane Katrina or any other devastating past disasters.

US, NATO allies take flight at Polygone Story and photo by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he Polygone Electronic Warfare Range extended their capabilities with the opening of the Polygone Control Center on March 18 in Bann, Germany. With the PCC, Polygone operators talk to aircraft through a simulator which allows them to send virtual threats to test pilots on their reactions during enemy engagements. The control center offers a consolidated operating system that allows all exercise players to interact on one screen. The Polygone range also offers a worldwide deployable mobile alternative where operators can travel to the exercise location with a control center vehicle, the Multinational Aviation Live Virtual Constructive Training System, and simulate attacks. According to Maj. Ariane Greenman, director of operations at the Polygone Warrior Preparation Center Detachment 3, the PCC is a vital component to air power across the European theater because it keeps NATO allies combat ready. “The PCC allows us to simulate attacking (an

U.S. Air Force Col. Cloyce Adams, Polygone Warrior Preparation Center Detachment 3 commander, holds a man-portable aircraft survivability trainer at the Polygone Control Center on March 18 in Bann, Germany. The PWPC opened the new PCC, the multimedia training hub for NATO aircrew exercises.

enemy) more realistically and to fight the threats they (use),” Greenman said. “It prepares pilots for (emergencies) and gives them the chance to get real-time feedback on their threat reactions and whether or not they would have survived the engagement.” Because PCC operators are capable of communication with pilots during flight, the training offers a chance to get immediate and thorough feedback, as opposed to the old training system which

only notified them of passing or failing. Immediate feedback is not the only new convenience that Polygone offers. The MALTS control center dramatically reduces the cost of threat survivability training by delivering the range to the customer rather than requiring them to come here, said Master Sgt. John Zelinski, PEWR Detachment 3 superintendent. “Mobilizing a squadron of jets can be enormously expensive,” Zelinski said. “It entails

the movement of hundreds of support personnel and equipment. The MALTS alleviates a huge portion of that cost. With budget constraints surrounding the Department of Defense at the moment, this is an essential step in the right direction.” Prior to the PCC, Polygone range had remained stagnant for approximately 25 years. Before this development, NATO aircrews moved entire squadrons halfway around the world, at an enormous expense, to access modern

electronic warfare threat training. After receiving $16.7 million, Polygone built upon existing technologies from other electronic ranges, and now presents a state-of-theart training range only 20 kilometers from Ramstein. The PCC offers opportunities to train with virtual missiles and a chance for pilots to train on the radar systems from live threats. The PEWR uses Roland surface-to-air missile systems to lock into an aircraft's radar and teach pilots how to divert similar connections. German army Capt. Stefan Nilles-Valerius, PEWR threat system officer in charge, explained how the use of these missiles offers a unique capability in how it prepares pilots in avoiding radar detection by enemy threats. “(The use of Rolands) brings live training capability with highly experienced operators who have been doing this for (many years),” Nilles-Valerius said. “Some of them were trained in the East German air force and army. This gives us the most realistic situation to train the pilots.” After 33 months of preparation, Polygone now offers a modernized and real-time electronic warfare training system to NATO aircrews.

NCO academy recognized as best of best by Staff Sgt. Armando A. Schwier-Morales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The halls of the schoolhouse were crowded with technical sergeants rushing into classrooms, gathering books and learning from the best NCO academy in the Air Force. The U.S. Air Forces in Europe’s Kisling NCO Academy was named the 2014 U.S. Air Force Professional Military Education Team of the Year. This is the fifth time in the past six years they have been recognized for their accomplishments in the development of NATO NCOs. “I think the students are the heart of our organization,” said Chief Master Sgt. Amber Mitchell, Kisling NCOA commandant. “They keep us going every day, and that makes the instructors and everybody around us proud to serve.” Mitchell said the award recognizes what and how the team and school are influencing the sphere of leadership all around us because of the technical sergeants that ultimately are going back into their units and doing the things that make the mission go. Throughout the year, more than 1,100 students attended 28 academic days of training, covering more than 220 hours of curriculum and focusing on areas including successful learning, leadership and critical thinking. “I think it’s about innovative practices,” Mitchell said. “I think that is what sets Kisling apart.

things that other schools simply aren’t doing. We try to maximize the time of the students and the staff and come up with something like the innovation projects.” The innovation projects challenged Airmen to develop new ideas for their unit while they attended the schoolhouse and the projects were one of many accomplishments Airmen were recognized for.

Another highlight for the academy in 2014 was the development of militaries in other countries. Airmen from the academy not only traveled to other countries to teach, they also hosted international students from NATO countries such as Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and many more NATO countries. “I love connecting with the students,” said Tech. Sgt. Tamera Hall,


Kisling NCOA instructor. “The friendships and networking I have done here is going to last a lifetime, not only with my fellow instructors and cadre members, but with the students.” There is no stopping for the NCOA, they said. They still have places to improve for the Airmen who will crowd their hallways awaiting training and knowledge.

St. Martin

Picturesque Village on the Wine Road

What to see

Kropsburg Castle was built in the 13th century and is now a restaurant and tavern. It first served as a residence of the Bishop of Speyer and then later passed into the hands of the Lords of Dalberg. The castle was destroyed in 1689, however the outer bailey was rebuilt, which now houses the restaurant Castle Tavern at Kropsburg. You will find this castle restaurant in the countryside above the village of St. Martin. St. Martin’s Church in the village has an impressive clock tower but inside the Gothic art treasures and the Gothic vault are a must-see. Outside the church is the sandstone figure of St. Martin, which is a listed monument.

The church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A walk around the town features other UNESCO listed monuments including the halftimbered houses, the 18th century statue of St. Anthony on Maikammerstrasse and the late Renaissance (early 17th century) wooden statue of Christ. If you have never been to St. Martin, you will surely find something to interest you. Shopping in St. Martin offers browsing in curio, antique shops and much more.

Eating and drinking

St. Martin (referred to as Sankt Martin in German) is one of the loveliest villages on the “German Wine Road” (Deutsche Weinstrasse) in RheinlandPfalz. St. Martin has the distinction of being the only place in Germany that is named after a saint. St. Martin gave half of his cloak to a beggar who was only wearing rags during a harsh winter. The area surrounding has been inhabited since Roman times. Nested in the hills and surrounded by vineyards, this is a paradise to visit for its beauty, wine, food, shopping and more.

There are several options available for wine tasting. The Winery, the old chateau located at Maikammerer Road 7, is close to the Weingut Rössler – Schneider found at number 12. You can sample some great wines at the Wine & Sekthof Cutter (located at number 48) and the Winery Gernert (located at number 39). There are many other wineries in St. Martin and you don’t have to look very hard to find them. The Weingut Joachim Raabe is not only a place to purchase and taste wine, but a place to find delectable seasonal and regional specialty dishes. This traditional familyrun restaurant and vineyard is reasonably priced. Flammkuchen, a type of pizza with a thin crackerlike crust is one you will want to try. It is generously covered in crème fraiche, topped with the traditional onions and lardons (matchstick-sized pieces of belly pork) or bacon, and sometimes comes with a seasonal vegetable such as broccoli. Saint Martiner Castell is a hotel and restaurant and offers light German cuisine and an international menu. This restaurant is reasonably priced

and the traditional dishes are prepared with fresh local produce. There are other places to eat in the village of St. Martin and perhaps in your wanderings, you will come across a little gem of your own.


Explore your new home! Great city trips, fun playgrounds for kids, delicious recipes and much more.

same, the German team was eager to train and replicate the expeditionary capability as well as the ability to operate in an austere environment.

Al-Ghabra said he was so impressed with the exercise that he extended an invitation to the 160th FST’s personnel to visit his unit and integrate


with them. “Training like this should definitely continue so we can work anywhere, anytime under one system,” he said.

rience and expertise as an emergency room nurse, the 160th FST proved they were ideally suited to the combined training mission. Each member of the FST familiarized their German counterpart with their role in the unit. The teams triaged, stabilized, surgically intervened and postoperatively recovered simulated patients. The teams also learned about one another’s equipment through hands-on demonstrations and training. To this end, the American and German teams set up fully functional trauma bays side by side. The medics from the two countries also exchanged best clinical practices and identified redundancies and other operational challenges. They exercised patient care and flow scenarios. The allies learned through the differences in their technique as well as the similarities. One difference lies in the German medical team’s customary reliance on buildings and modular containers — the FST is capable of setting up anywhere using its own tents and gear. While medical care procedures are essentially the

The 160th Forward Surgical Team of the 212th Combat Support Hospital, 30th Medical Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, conducted an interoperability exercise with 10 service members from the Bundeswehr Operational Medical Support Command March 9 to 12 at Miesau Ammo Depot. It was an opportunity for German and American medics to learn about each other’s medical skills and equipment, and it opened the door for continued partnership. “This exercise was a good way to showcase our capabilities and for them to integrate into how we operate and vice versa,” said Sgt. Daniel Dela Cruz, a medic who runs 160th FST’s advanced trauma life support section. While the German military maintains an entity similar to the American combat support hospital, it doesn’t have a precise equivalent to the FST. The exercise was aimed at helping the German team construct a similar forward surgical capability. “It is wonderful to learn (about) the FST and see how tactical and combat medicine works,” said German navy Cmdr. Elias Al-Ghabra, who played an important role in the exercise. The Bundeswehr Operational Medical Support Command came to the exercise with an anesthesiologist, two anesthesiology assistants, three operating room technicians, two surgeons, a logistics officer and a medical planning sergeant major. The German team was a mix of air force, navy and army personnel, who came from various parts of the country, including Hamburg, Koblenz, Ulm, Berlin and Weissenfels. The American unit provided a thorough brief on the organizational structure and mission of an FST. Led by Maj. Gustavo Moreno, a commander with extensive expe-

Ten seconds later, picture still exists Story and photo by Liz Jacobson U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs There is a conversation many teenagers may have had with their parents or friends, including myself. “Hey, don't worry! It’ll be fine. All of the pictures I send disappear after ten seconds. That’s how Snapchat works.” While many teenagers only share their silly, crosseyed, quadruple-chinned faces with friends, there is a growing number of teenagers sending inappropriate content that will “disappear.” High school students feel a certain level of safety that does not exist while using the Internet and apps such as Tinder, Omegle, Chat Roulette, Instagram and Snapchat. Unfortunately, it is incredibly simple for the receiver to take advantage of the sent content, and though the picture may disappear after 10 seconds, it can actually last a lot longer than that. While these apps can be used inappropriately, the apps themselves are not bad, and should just be used responsibly. It is easy to protect yourself from online predators, but it is rarely done. The most effective way to keep information secure is to lock any social media accounts and turn on all privacy settings. Many people spend their time clicking on pictures and profiles, but it is impossible to know who is viewing them. It could be a friend from school or it could be an online predator. Before friending or accepting anyone’s follow request, it is necessary to know who they are. Social media is a great tool for keeping in touch with friends and family members, but it is important to use caution and be responsible. I have many friends that pride themselves on the fact that they have over one, two, or ten thousand followers. This is dangerous because with so many people seeing so much of their lives, it is

impossible to be safe. The feeling of invincibility starts early. During middle school, Omegle was the next best thing on the Internet. At sleepovers or on Saturday afternoons, young girls and boys would sit around a laptop and pretend to be whomever they thought of. They would give silly answers and laugh at the accents they pretended their user had. However, we all knew that unless you wanted to see the “gross stuff,” you had to turn the camera off. Many of us have since moved on from this fear and feel that sending pornographic content over apps is OK. The attitude toward sharing everything on the Internet has also lead to unfortunate, yet completely avoidable situations. Why do so many teenagers participate in an activity that can have so many bad repercussions? Teenage girls reported to the website dosomething.org and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, that there are three main reasons for sending nude photos: as a joke, to feel sexy and being under peer pressure. Sending inappropriate photos is not a joke nor will it boost a person’s confidence. While at first it may be a thrill, the psychological damage could deteriorate a girl’s or boy’s self-esteem. Peer pressure is a horrible, real-life struggle. Everyone experiences peer pressure at some point in their lifetime, but your body belongs to you and no one else. For teenagers, Snapchat is the most common app where pictures are shared. Snapchat is available for anyone, regardless of age and it is based on the idea of pictures disappearing forever after 10 seconds. Despite this, it is easy to either screenshot the picture or use a third-party app that will save the picture automatically for you. These pictures can be used against the sender at the receiver’s convenience. Even two people that have a trusting relationship should not partake in this kind of

activity for two reasons: First, it could be considered illegal. Second, it can easily be shared or shown to others that were not the intended audience. According to dosomething.org, 17 percent of “sexters” share the messages they receive with others, and 55 percent of those share them with more than one person. Everyone wants to believe that their friends would never betray them, but we have all seen the stories of a girl’s pictures being spread around school as a prank or out of anger. These situations are so damaging to a person’s confidence and reputation. It is common to think that someone in a close circle is not going to end up like those girls or boys, but it can easily happen to anyone with just the click of a button. The number of people sharing inappropriate pictures is increasing. Sources say that 1 in 5 teenagers are sharing provocative photos and possibly even scarier, the senders are getting younger. It’s unimaginable how 7th and 8th grade students are sending such mature content, yet it still continues to happen. I have a younger sister and I believe that it is my job to warn and educate her on the dangers of “sexting” and online predators. Everyone in high school should be doing this as well: Do not encourage inappropriate, online behavior by talking about how much fun or how safe it is; Do not make it seem okay to these young, impressionable girls and boys; Do not be afraid to stand up against peer pressure.

April 17, 2015 Band, from Page 1

Upholding military tradition is one of the reasons for the band’s musical presence. Music has played a role during many traditions in history such as in formations, taps and at ceremonies. The band delivers a wide variety of music including recent pop tunes to older classical music. Touch ’n Go performs at many local events, but they are also tasked with bringing morale to service members and civilians down range. It is common that people may only see the combat readiness part of the picture, so it is especially important to go and interact with the communities in other foreign nations and to give them a good impression, said Staff

Sgt. Alex Nikiforoff, USAFE Touch ’n Go band guitarist. “A major initiative of the military is building partnerships and enhancing international relationships with both military members and civilians,” Nikiforoff said. “It is an honor to have the privilege to communicate our heritage across a wide variety of demographics and increase knowledge of the U.S. (presence).” Not only do band members give to the community, but they get a sense of fulfillment back through these humbling experiences, he said. “It can be emotional to see children with (very little), trying to do well with what they have,” Nikiforoff said. The USAFE band plays a critical role in spreading a good impression of the U.S. and strengthening international relationships.

Mental health promotes healthy thinking by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 86th Medical Operations Squadron Mental Health Clinic offers a new Healthy Thinking and Relaxation class, developed to help individuals identify their beliefs that can sometimes become alarming or inaccurate. The class, which focuses on two of the four Comprehensive Airman Fitness pillars, helps people develop attitudes and beliefs consistent with their long-term goals and objectives. The class’ main focus is to teach people how to balance their thinking as well as learn positive ways to cope with stress through relaxation techniques taught and practiced together in the class. An important portion of the class is to help normalize the stress we all feel by emphasizing that seeking help is a sign of strength and that everyone has chal-

lenges. It’s all confidential and private; no one is required to talk if they don't want to, but members are encouraged to participate throughout the class. “This class helps people better manage symptoms of stress and depression that may impact their daily lives in social, familiar and occupational settings,” said Capt. Rachel Wiley, 86th MDOS psychologist. “It's important that people know their thoughts are directly connected to how they feel, and the way we think about things greatly impacts our emotions and behavior.” With the stress military members endure during their career, learning how to manage daily difficulties and cope with unwanted scenarios can be a valuable tool. A few Airmen from the MDOS sat in a few classes to gain a broader understanding of mental health. “I definitely recommend this class because it’s a very interactive group and you're not just sitting

there listening to people talk,” said Airman 1st Class Charles Jackson, 86th MDOS mental health technician. “The class is designed for someone to get exactly what they put into it.” According to Wiley, just like learning a new sport or instrument, success in any new skill requires motivation. Expert assistance such as attending this class, practicing the techniques learned, measuring progress and rewarding oneself for new accomplishments leads to acquiring a new skill. In order to get into the class, one must already be a patient of the mental health clinic and they must visit the clinic and fill out an intake form. Each class runs for four consecutive Friday sessions. For more information on the Healthy Thinking and Relaxation class, contact the mental health clinic at 479-2390 or 06371-462390.

This year, the world will celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Earth Day is an opportunity to rethink our commitment to energy conservation. The 21st Theater Sustainment Command developed its energy discipline program in 2014. The focus of the program this year is to conduct energy assessments during tactical operations and training. Energy is a critical enabler for Army operations and represents a significant garrison and operational expense. The purpose of instilling energy discipline into all operations of the 21st TSC, is to create an energy informed culture, and ultimately create more efficient operations. Operational energy considerations should a part of mission planning just as risk assessment is. The Army continues to develop more efficient and smarter systems; however, until new equipment is deliv-

ered to field and garrison sites, the 21st TSC is focusing on how current buildings and operational equipment can be optimized. Many improvements have already been accomplished by the 21st TSC. “During my three years here, I’ve seen remarkable improvements in our efforts to save energy and money, and find ‘greener’ solutions to procedural challenges,� said Maj. Mike Swienton, a 21st TSC installation engineer. “Some changes are very obvious to

baseline of energy consumption. They discovered the generators were working at onehalf their capacity. Based on that research, the 21st TSC is developing an efficient power distribution system for a deployable command post, utilizing currently available equipment, which would decrease the number of needed generators from three to one, thereby decreasing fuel usage, manhours to fuel and maintain the generators and noise on the camp. Another example of utilizing energy discipline is performing assessments on buildings currently occupied by the 21st TSC.

Spc. Brian Slocum (left), a military police Soldier assigned to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 92nd Military Police Company, 709th Military Police Battalion, 18th Military Police Brigade and a native of Junction City, Oregon, discusses the day’s patrol route with Sgt. Kenneth S. Farrell (right) an assistant squad leader with the 92nd MP Company, April 8, on Vogelweh Militarry Complex Germany.

“Our NCOs want to keep our tactics and procedures fresh in our minds, so we are always ready on patrol.� After the Soldiers complete their briefing and sign for their patrol cars, they are responsible for conducting an inventory of all equipment needed for their patrol. They also perform basic preliminary safety and maintenance checks on the vehicle before their patrol starts. This attention to detail is important due to the large area these Soldiers are responsible for, said Sgt. Kenneth S. Farrell, an assistant squad leader with the 92nd MP Company. “These Soldiers patrol all over Kaiserslautern and all the way into Mannheim. We have one of the largest patrol areas in Germany,� Farrell said. “These vehicles have to take us to all these places, and we have to have the proper gear when we get there. Attention to detail is extremely important for these Soldiers.� With maintenance and inventories complete, Slocum can begin his patrol route. While patrolling the KMC, he is responsible for conducting perimeter and fence checks, random access inspections and responding to emergencies within the community. “Some days we can patrol for an entire shift and not

have a single incident. We conduct our perimeter and security checks, and stay ready to answer a call,� Slocum said. “Other days we respond to multiple calls from the community, ranging from domestic violence to driving under the influence.� As each patrol ends, Slocum and his fellow Soldiers refill their patrol cars, brief the incoming shift and turn in their weapons. As they go home, they know in 12 hours or less they will be back on duty, serving and protecting the KMC. “It is hard at times, working the long hours and not getting the same days off that other Soldiers do,� he said, “but when you help out on something big, like a child missing or a domestic violence incident, it’s all worth it. It’s worth it to help my fellow Soldiers in this community.� KAISERSLAUTERN

Depending on the day and the mission, he could start as early as 2 a.m. and never know when his shift will end. His mission is to serve and protect Soldiers and family members on Army installations throughout the KMC and beyond. This is the life of a military police Soldier. The 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 92nd Military Police Company, 709th Military Police Battalion, 18th Military Police Brigade is responsible for security and law enforcement on Army installations in the KMC and other areas of Germany — Spc. Brian Slocum, a native of Junction City, Oregon, is one of their Soldiers. The 92nd MP Company has three shifts each day, and the Soldiers begin physical readiness training four hours prior to their shifts to ensure patrols start on time. Every patrol Soldier must be physically fit and can be called in at any time for a height and weight assessment. “As military police on patrol, it’s important that we uphold the Army standard. If a Soldier is overweight or can’t pass an Army Physical Fitness Test, it would reflect badly on the MP Corps and our unit,� Slocum said. “We just can’t have that.� After physical training, his shift begins with weapons and ammunition draw at the provost marshal’s office on Vogelweh Military Complex, Germany, followed by a shift change and guard mount briefing. The patrol leaders brief a different topic related to law enforcement each day. “Sometimes the briefing will cover how to respond to a domestic dispute — others, it will cover how to detain someone. It just depends on the day,� Slocum said.

Challenge coins: a tradition of excellence Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Deana Heitzman 31st Fighter Wing Public Affairs AVIANO AIR BASE, Italy — Throughout the time we spend in the military, we collect many things. Whether they are mementos, awards or habits, such items are kept to remember the special moments we never wish to forget. Challenge coins are an example of these memories, as they are a form of recognition of the hard work and excellence an individual has displayed. Whether the coins are presented by the president, a chief master sergeant or a first sergeant, their value is determined by each individual. However, the true history of the challenge coin dates back to World War I, when an American pilot was shot down and captured in Germany. While escaping from the grasp of the Germans, the pilot made his way to France, where they believed he was a spy and sentenced him to be executed. To prove his identity and save his life, he revealed a bronze medallion with his flying squadron’s emblem, confirming that he was an American pilot. The French spared his life and celebrated by giving him a bottle of wine instead. After this incident, it became a tradition that all

The Airman’s coin signifies the beginning of an enlisted member’s career upon graduating basic military training. The original version of the Airman’s coin featured an eagle clawing its way out of the coin with the words “Aerospace Power” under it. The most recent coin replaced the eagle with the new Air Force symbol.

members of the squadron carry their medallion, sparking challenge coins to become a trademark for military tradition and pride. One of the sought-after coins for Air Force enlisted is the Airman’s coin. After the long weeks in basic military training, the Airman's coin ceremony officially marks the transition from a trainee to an Airman. “When I received my first coins for graduating both basic training and financial services apprentice school, it meant I was a part of something,” said Lt. Col. Michelle Libbey, the 31st Comptroller Squadron commander.

“Receiving a coin is a sense of pride and a form of identification,” Libbey said. She was enlisted in 1996 and later commissioned in 2001. While most service members proudly display their coins for others to see, others choose to always carry their most important coin in their pocket in the event of a coin check. “Although coins have become less popular from when I joined the military, I still carry a coin in my pocket when I go to official functions,” Libbey said. “Because if you do not have one, and someone else performs a coin check, you are responsible for buying everyone a round of

refreshing beverages and that can get expensive.” The tradition of coin checking also began in Germany after World War I. American personnel who were stationed in Germany adopted the local ritual of “Pfennig” checks. A Pfennig was the lowest denomination of German currency. If a service member did not have a Pfennig, they would have to buy the next round of drinks. This ritual carried over and became part of the challenge coin tradition. Though the legacy of coin checking typically stayed within the enlisted ranks, Libbey explained how officers have their own traditions

with challenge coins. Known as a “first salute” coin or a “silver dollar” salute, a coin was presented to the first enlisted member who saluted the newly commissioned officer. The 19th century phrase that encompassed this action was, “you have to buy your first salute and then earn every salute thereafter, through your performance and by gaining respect of your subordinates.” This is to honor the enlisted personnel who help officers achieve their commission status. “When I became a commander, creating a coin was one of the first things I wanted to do,” Libbey said. “You want to have something that signifies excellence and to recognize the Airmen who are bringing more than average to the mission.” The challenge coin tradition that began in World War I exhibits commendable service, a lively legacy and supports unit morale across the Air Force. Although all coins are different, they all tell a story for each recipient and give a personal touch on recognition. “The tradition definitely started in the enlisted ranks, but they are no less important to me as an officer,” Libbey said. “When I look at my coins, they are like a tapestry to me. They paint a picture of where I have been throughout the past 19 years and they represent the incredible people I have met.”

DOD News Broadcast Channel transitions to on-demand DOD News, Defense Media Activity The Department of Defense News broadcast channel, formerly known as the Pentagon Channel, will discontinue service as an independent broadcast channel today, Pentagon officials announced Tuesday. DOD News will continue produc-

ing and airing current military news and information for distribution on the American Forces Network and through the Internet at defense.gov, both live and on demand, officials said in a news release. The transition to these delivery methods will provide more opportunities for the military community, stationed around the world and at sea, to

keep up with Defense of Department news and events, officials said. The new service will provide military members and their families the opportunity to watch live events on AFN or as a video stream on defense.gov 24/7. Defense.gov will archive the programs to allow for on-demand viewing, officials noted. The channel operated as a separate

broadcast channel for more than 10 years. AFN overseas and many commercial cable companies in the United States have used the service. As technology improved and audience viewing habits changed, officials explained, Internet-based distribution became a more economical and efficient way to reach the military’s geographically dispersed audiences.
