Speak up, speak out against sexual assault by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs “I am not a victim of sexual assault. I am a survivor.” One word can mean the difference between making the decision to get help, or allowing someone else’s decision to dictate your well-being. April is Sexual Assault Prevention Awareness Month, and to bring the issue to people’s attention the Ramstein Sexual Assault Prevention and Response team invited Claire Russo to tell her story and answer questions in a small-group forum.

“I heard Claire Russo speak at an Army event last year, and her message was powerful,” said Carmen Schott, Ramstein sexual assault response coordinator. “We felt that it would be beneficial for our community to hear her story in a small-group format. It ensured a comfortable atmosphere for individuals to ask questions, which helped foster open communication and small-group discussion about the topic.” Russo spoke at three small-group sessions and was able to answer a number of questions for those who attended.

“I am not a victim of sexual assault. I am a survivor.” “The definition of resilience means the ability of something to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, pressed or bent,” Russo said. “Resiliency is not a trait. It’s a process that someone goes through during a traumatic situation.” Since age 11, Russo was fixated on joining the Marine Corps, because she wanted to be held to the highest stan-

dards. When she went to college, she joined the training there. “My first assignment was in California,” she said. “I had barely been there a month when the Marine Corps’ birthday ball came up. I attended with my cousin, also an officer in the Marines, and he introduced me to several of his friends who were all pilots.” As the night went on, Russo could only remember bits and pieces of what had happened to her. “I remember the painful things,” See SEXUAL ASSAULT, Page 3

The 435th Air Ground Operations Wing hosted three members of the Kosovo Security Force for a firefighting fundamentals course conducted April 7 to 11 on Ramstein. Airmen from the 435th Contingency Response Group’s Air Adviser Branch coordinated the event while the course was run by instructors from the 435th Construction and Training Squadron’s U.S. Air Forces in Europe Fire Academy. Tech. Sgt. James Hickman, 435th CTS fire and rescue contingency training NCOIC, commended the experience the KSF soldiers brought to the course.

“I was impressed with the level of technical rescue training they already had,” he said. “We took advantage of the opportunity to exchange techniques, and I feel that we directly impacted their abilities to enhance their growing rescue response programs and capabilities.” The event included instruction for incident management control, crash rescue tactics and strategies, rope rescue and patient packaging techniques, and confined space familiarization. The KSF soldiers also toured KMC Fire Station 1, aircraft and structural fire simulators and a C-130J Super Hercules. All elements of the course were designed to familiarize KSF first

Character, experience are keys to successful leadership COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col. James Mullinax 2nd Air Postal Squadron commander Our Air Force is undergoing significant changes as we move toward becoming a smaller, more capable fighting force. As we progress, the need for Airmen to step forward and fill the gap has never been more important, and the leadership they display will make all the difference. Some may ask, “How do you become a leader, and what special characteristics are required to lead the Air Force’s greatest asset?” Answer: our Airmen. I would like to relay a few beliefs that I have developed over the past 21 years of service that I believe will be essential in the days ahead. The first key trait in a leader is character. Character is nothing more than the combination of the Air Force’s core values. A leader must do what is right and be a shin-

ing example for all other Airmen. That is integrity. Leaders are selfless in their actions and make decisions based on fact, not on personal gain, and always place service before self. In addition, a leader always displays and demands excellence in every activity. Put into a more simple form, character is who you are as a person and is a reflection of what others think of you. A person said to have good character typically excels as a leader. This is largely because people are willing to listen to them and to follow them out of confidence, knowing the leader has everyone’s best interests at heart. An effective leader makes time for Airmen, listens to their problems and gets out of the office and visits them where they work. The second key is building personal experience. One of my favorite books is “American Generalship: Character is Everything: The Art of Command,” by Edgar F. Puryear.

Puryear uses the introduction to set the stage for the rest of the book by forcing the reader to ponder the question of whether a person is a born leader or if leadership is taught. Gen. Carl A. Spaatz, first chief of staff of the Air Force, believed “… you must be born with certain characteristics, but it’s more a case of what takes place after you are born that decides whether or not you are going to be a leader.” Leaders learn in two ways: by hands-on experience and by observation. Airmen learn by doing. If you stay in the same duty position or location too long, your growth stagnates. You begin to suffer from tunnel vision, only seeing the small portion of the Air Force you know. Simply put, you become comfortable. Good leaders step outside their comfort zone and ask for increased responsibility. Only by stepping up do you learn, both from

success and from failure, how you fit into the overall Air Force mission. Airmen also learn by observing. The key to success in this aspect is observing Airmen who make decisions. When you observe those in leadership positions, you learn not only why they made a certain decision, but also the thought process behind it. Using a few cliches, observing others develops your ability to “think outside the box” and to “see the big picture.” The history of the Air Force is full of change, and the Air Force of the future requires an increased level of commitment from all of those who decide to serve. As a very wise chief master sergeant recently told me, Airmen can be outstanding or they can be out standing by the gate. Are you ready to become the leader all Airmen need, deserve and demand, or will you be watching from the other side of the fence?

Baumholder focuses on its children by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs

Baumholder’s Child, Youth and Schools Services teamed up with Army Community Service and the Baumholder schools recently to present a united front in the fight against child abuse and to raise awareness for autism. With April being the Month of the Military Child, educators and caregivers seized this opportunity to bring attention to the topics of child abuse and autism by coordinating a new and novel program to kick off the annual observance. For the first time, children from Smith and Wetzel elementary schools participated in a volksmarch at Minick Field, followed by a signing of proclamations by Lt. Col. Mike Sullivan, U.S.

she said. “I woke up in a hotel room naked and didn’t really know where I was. The guy was lying in bed not even acknowledging me. When I finally got home I remember thinking, ‘I am never going to tell anyone about this.’” Sexual assault allegations weren’t received very well by commanders. Russo said a fellow female officer trainee reported a sexual assault during training and was ridiculed and doubted by her superiors and ultimately removed from training. Russo wanted to keep her own assault to herself until her cousin found out and reported the incident. After years of battling with boards, judges and office scrutiny, Russo decided her time in the Marine Corps had to come to an end, however, her fight with sexual assault wasn’t yet over. Russo now goes around to different military instillations to raise awareness of this crime and encourage people to speak up.

“Seek help, know your resources and let people help you,” Russo said during a small-group discussion. “You must help others as well. It’s easy to say, ‘I’m sorry this happened to you,’ then walk away. We need to help each other.” Taking an active role in the aftermath of a sexual assault allows access to Air Force resources, and, if an unrestricted report is made, it can prevent an attacker from assaulting someone else. “As a SARC and licensed clinical social worker, I feel

it is crucial for community members to put a face to a name and to see firsthand how sexual assault victims are impacted,” Schott said. “Hearing their stories helps others realize that this could happen to anyone — our friend, sister or brother.” There are resources available to help those affected by sexual assault. To contact a sexual assault response coordinator, call the SARC main line at 480-7272, the SARC hotline at 06371-47-7272, or SAPR on-call at 0172-8214871.

responders with procedures for in-flight or ground emergencies. The training expanded on the skill sets of the KSF soldiers who attended the course, as they are all part of the KSF Search and Rescue Company. Pvt. Kushtrim Hyseni, KSF search and rescue technician, said he looked forward to putting the skills to use. “The firefighting training materials we’ve received during the course have been very good, especially the hands on portions,” Hyseni said. “It was beneficial to take what we have learned here and apply it to the KSF mission.” The KSF members wish to increase their firefighting capacity as they transition from an emergency response force into a NATO compliant army by 2019. This BPC event goes toward the United States and Kosovo’s mutual goals to achieve full operating capability and enhance interoperability with NATO Allies.

what it is and how we can help all of our friends,” he said. Deployments are a fact of life in the military, and Army Community Service Director Ricky Gibbons pointed out that children experience the same stress associated with deployments as adults, but it is not always noticed. “I think sometimes our children don’t get the attention that they should. Military children undergo as much stress with deployments as the parents do. It’s just that they manifest it a little bit differently. So it’s really important for us to be aware how these kids operate in a mili-

tary environment and do everything we can to support them,” Gibbons said. Jason Etchell, who heads up Baumholder’s Child, Youth and School Services, said the Month of the Military Child provides an opportunity to think about what military children mean to the community. “I think it’s a time just to reflect, particularly on how precious our children are, the contributions they make and the sacrifices they make. We think a lot about the spouses and the Soldiers, but sometimes we may forget about the kids, and this is really a month about our children — protecting our children and celebrating them and really

Sullivan also pointed out the importance of recognizing the sacrifices of military children to the parents, teachers and caregivers who participated in the opening ceremony events for the Month of the Military Child. “Military children go through so much, and too often we forget that they have to go through the same stressful experiences we do,” Sullivan said. “The fact that we can take at least one month out of the year to recognize their valuable contributions and their invaluable experiences I think is absolutely critical.”

Airmen must revalidate dependents Story and photo by Tech. Sgt. James M. Hodgman U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs


ore than 16,000 U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Airmen must revalidate their dependents to continue receiving basic housing allowance or overseas housing allowance at the with-dependent rate. This requirement also applies to military members occupying family housing. The command’s revalidation efforts are part of the Air Force’s servicewide mandate for Airmen to revalidate their dependents by Dec. 31. The command’s goal is to have all revalidations completed by Oct. 31. This one-time, Air Force-wide re-certification process will allow the Air Force to validate Airmen’s basic allowance for housing entitlements, ensuring every dollar of the $5.4 billion the service spends annually on BAH is fully auditable, said Master Sgt.

7th CSC Soldiers participate in Viking 14 CPX Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs ENKOPING, Sweden — A snap of cold air engulfed Sweden as more than 2,500 military service members and civilians from more than 50

nations participated in Viking 14, a command post exercise hosted every three years since 1999 by the Swedish armed forces and Folke Bernadotte Academy, March 31 to April 10. Approximately 20 7th Civil Support Command Soldiers with the 361st Civil Affairs Brigade also partici-

pated in the event. The CPX was spread out across eight exercise sites in five different countries, including the Republic of Georgia, Bulgaria, Ireland, Serbia and four in Sweden. The training scenario depicted the fake country of “Bogaland” six months after the country emerged from a civil war. “Viking 14 is a multinational crisis response exercise,” said Army Capt. Joshua

Koncar, logistics officer, 361st CA Bde., 7th CSC. According to the exercise pocket guide, “the aim of exercise Viking 14 is to prepare, train and educate participants — civilian, military and police — to cooperate effectively and meet the challenges of current and future multidimensional crisis response and peace operations.” In past and during some present conflicts and disaster responses, including

course of the exercise in ways to weave their collective decision-making process and objectives using a comprehensive approach to increase cooperation and interoperability between partner nations, he added. “The Swedish armed forces did a really good job developing a real life (like) scenario with regards to U.N. mandated crisis response,” Koncar said. The training exercise with more than 90 different nongovernmental organizations and international organizations focused on the parallel missions that occur during operations in a post crisis/conflict area to help unstable areas become stable and make steady progress going forward. “I think, first of all, working with the international environment is a great opportunity,” said Lithuanian army Maj. Gediminas Latvys, currently a student at the Baltic Defense College and an officer in the Lithuanian army. Latvys graduated from the U.S. Army Civil Affairs course in 2004 and has deployed to Kosovo and Afghanistan. The CPX’s NATO Joint Forces Command operated side by side with two equivalent and parallel civilian commands, the U.N. Headquarters and the European Union’s Civil Administration Mission (EUCAM). The 7th CSC Soldiers from the 361st CA Bde. worked together with partner nations’ civil military cooperation (CIMIC) Soldiers and civilians to exercise their readiness for any future manmade crisis or natural disaster or post conflict as part of the exercise’s Land Component Command under the “Bogaland” Forces, or BFOR HQ, which reported to the fictional NATO Joint Forces Command. “Our goals include assisting our NATO partners in developing their civil-military capabilities as well as developing our own,” said Army Lt. Col. Keith Gawrys, functional specialist with the 361st CA Bde., 7th CSC, who works for a civilian defense contractor in his day job. “We are also here to bridge the gap between NATO and U.S. civil-military doctrine. The U.S. speaks ‘Civil Affairs,’ and NATO speaks ‘CIMIC,’ or civil military cooperation.” The joint multinational military-civilian exercise participants trained in how to weave their collective decision-making process and objectives using a comprehensive approach to increase cooperation and interoperability between partner nations. “It’s very relevant to use in these types of exercises the comprehensive approach by having military and civilian working side by side,” Latvys said. “Our daily interactions and cooperation with the civilians help to better understand the contemporary operational environment and plan appropriate civil-military operations. We conduct the meetings and planning process together because this is what we do when deployed to a theater of operation whether it is in peace time or war time.” Viking 14 gave the military participants the chance to work closely with NATO, UN, EU, NGOs, GOs and other international organizations at the same time, “because when they deploy, that is the reality they will see on the ground,” said Angelica Bille-Bergman, a Swedish armed forces CIMIC exercise planner. “All organizations have cultures and a way to handle various situations,” Bille-Bergman said. “This is an excellent opportunity to learn from each other, get to know each other’s cultures and work in this type of environment. You’re able to work closely with each other, which enhances cooperation and the speed of the mission.” Koncar said the main takeaway was a greater level of understanding of how to interact with non-government agencies, as well as other nations during a crisis response. “What is most important is the understanding between the civilians and the military, so that they make their mistakes here,” said Swedish armed forces Maj. Gen. Bengt Andersson, Viking 14 military exercise director. “So when they go to the field, there are (none).”

DOD salutes military children by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Public Affairs


ince 1986, members of the Department of Defense have designated April as Month of the Military Child. The annual observance is designed to recognize and honor the ongoing sacrifices of military children around the world. Military installations are hosting activities and special programming throughout April to show their support for the many thousands of children who serve alongside their parents through combat deployments and frequent moves. Air Force Master Sgt. Rachel Herrick and her family are stationed in the KMC. Herrick said she’s grateful for her children’s support during her more than 17 years of military service, and she’s proud to return the favor. “I think it’s great, because we get to recognize the children that stand behind most of us military members and give us the strength to get through many of the tough times that we have, whether it’s long TDYs or a deployment to a very far off location,” Herrick said. “Those little smiles and those faces are what get us through it, and to have a month to let them know that it’s them that is our strength, I think it’s an amazing crash, from Page 3

on this model. Fortunately, one of the other crew members knew what to do and Hollar was able to jump. “The pilot was still at the controls with the wing on fire,” Hollar said. “I just put my hands out, one to keep my head from hitting the bomb bay doors and the other held over the rip cord so it wouldn’t catch anything. “After the rush of the air after you leave the plane, everything is dead calm. There’s no sensation of movement or falling or nothing. You could have gone to sleep if you had enough time,” he continued. Only four of the crew members were able to parachute and escape the explosion and ensuing crash. Antonio de La Serna, 11 at the time, witnessed the crash. “We were playing at the chateau when we saw the plane coming in,” de La Serna said. “I still remember the sound as the plane was heading down. Then there was the explosion. A few seconds later we saw two parachutes coming down. We didn’t see the

thing that we as a military have.” Herrick’s daughter, Saige, 8, considers herself somewhat of a pro when it comes to military life. She easily rattles off a long list of places she’s lived or visited while serving with her mother. The list includes everywhere from Texas to Hawaii and now Germany. “I’ve been a military child a long time, and I’ve gone through a lot of things. It’s scary sometimes, but also really fun. You get to do different things and see different things. I like Germany a lot but other places are fun, too. Not just Germany,” Saige said. Herrick and Saige added that they also relied on close family, cards and letters, and FaceTime chats to help them endure difficult separations that can often accompany military life. “I think we as parents just need to remember how awesome they are and what strength they give us and to say thank you to them and to never forget how cool we are to have amazing children like this that support us through everything,” Herrick said. In honor of Month of the Military Child, the Army and Air Force will sponsor a Month of the Military Child International Children’s Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Pulaski Park on Pulaski Barracks. The opening ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. This annual event for community members will feature free food, games, music and more.

others but heard about them later.” After hitting the ground, Hollar started looking for the best direction to quickly get into hiding. Being farm country, there weren’t many choices. “(After landing) I just started to cross the pasture to (the) trees and I heard people calling,” he said. “I looked back and these two civilians were frantically calling and waving for me to hurry back. I rushed back, and they started walking real fast toward the house. The (German soldiers) reached my landing site and started firing at us. “We ran around the house, and there was a big hay stack there with a hole in it at the bottom,” he continued. “I jumped into that, and they stuffed it closed.” Hollar said his head was only about six inches under the straw, and he could hear the German soldiers talking to the Belgians, asking where the American went. Fortunately, the Belgians didn’t give up his position. After a couple of hours the Belgians brought him some warm milk and a sandwich, but he only ate half the sandwich and put the other

half in his pocket. “I didn’t know when I would get anything else,” he said. Later that night, he was whisked across pastures to another house where a big supper was waiting for him, he said. After about a month in Fouleng, they moved him to Brussels where he spent five months in hiding with numerous Belgian families. He was provided a fake passport with the name Camille Juanau, and on his work card he was listed as an editor. On Sept. 3, 1944, British troops liberated Brussels and soon after, Hollar started his trip back to rejoin the U.S. Army. Hollar said he doesn’t remember the resistance members much, but has fond memories of the members of the families he lived with. “They were real nice and kind and did just about anything for my well-being,” he added. Hollar enlisted in the regular Army on Nov. 19, 1941, and was discharged Nov. 1, 1945. He served for the entire U.S. involvement in the war.

NATO air chiefs meet at Allied Air Command


ATO air chiefs and senior officers from 25 Allied Air Forces arrived at Ramstein April 7 to convene for the NATO Air Chiefs Symposium 2014. Gen. Frank Gorenc, commander of Allied Air Command, invited his national colleagues to discuss current air-related issues April 8. “I thank you for your leadership in organizing, training and equipping your respective air forces, which will continue to fuel our Alliance’s asymmetric advantage,” Gorenc said during his welcome remarks. The commander of AIRCOM hosts gatherings

of NATO air chiefs annually. This year’s meeting took the form of a working symposium. One item of discussion was the current situation around Ukraine. The participants discussed what Air can do in support of the North Atlantic Council-approved crisis response measures, how to coordinate recent force offerings for NATO’s Baltic Air Policing and Air activities under the NATO military partnership and cooperation with Ukraine. The symposium agenda focused primarily on capability development, enhancing training and exercises, reinforcing the NATO com-

mand structure and NATO force structure relationship, and strengthening NATO’s air policing policies. Other discussions covered the future of the Alliance’s Ballistic Missile Defense mission and the Joint Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance project. Updates were provided on the Air Command and Control System as a facilitator and the NATO Tactical Evaluation Program as a quality assurance tool. The Joint Air Power Competence Center in Kalkar, Germany, of which Gorenc is the director, presented its latest research on the future vector for NATO air forces. “I am unbelievably opti-

mistic about our future,” Gorenc said as he bade farewell to his fellow Airmen in the late afternoon of April 8. “Today’s meaningful discussions continue to reinforce my confidence in our ability to provide precise combat power from the air.” In the margins of the symposium, some of the air chiefs used their stay at Ramstein to meet with their national elements to discuss administrative matters. In total, 25 Allied air forces contribute to AIRCOM by sending their personnel. Sweden and Finland, both members of NATO’s Partnership for Peace program, also provide staff mem-

ber support to the headquarters. AIRCOM is in the lead for all NATO air and missile defense activities, including 24/7 air policing, monitoring of the Alliance airspace across Europe and standing up a Joint Force Air Component to control Allied air forces during a NATO operation. AIRCOM is comprised of the Headquarters in Ramstein; two Combined Air Operation Centers in Uedem, Germany, and Torrejon, Spain; and the Deployable Air Command and Control Center at Poggio Renatico, Italy.

FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. — Whether trying to coordinate multiple aircraft in a three-dimensional battlespace, calling in precise close air support or evacuating personnel caught behind enemy lines, effective multitasking is at the heart of the mission for Air Force special operators. Researchers with the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, are now working to make missions lighter and faster for Airmen by testing Google Glass and its head-mounted optical see-through display technology for potential battlefield use. Still in beta-testing as part of Google’s Explorer program, the trials are conducted by the Battlefield Air Targeting, Man-Aided Knowledge, or BATMA(N) group, an advanced technology demonstration and research program commissioned by the Air Force Special Operations Command to develop, build and investigate advanced wearable technologies. “Trying to interact in the battlespace places a lot of burden on the dismounted battlefield Airmen,” said Dr. Gregory Burnett, the

chief engineer of the BATMA(N) program. “BATMA(N) is a constant endeavor to try to improve tactical decision making and reduce the human error associated with our Airmen’s mission set.” A combination between a hardware and software product, Google Glass is based on Google’s own Android operating system and can leverage a great majority of modern smartphone capabilities while remaining light and allowing for largely hands-free operation. “Its most distinguishing feature is that its screen sits above the user’s right eye,” said Andres Calvo, software developer and civilian contractor with the 711th HPW. “What that means is that the screen is off by default. Whenever you need to access the information, you either look up, or you touch on the trackpad and only then will the screen turn on.” While aircraft pilots have been using variations of heads-up displays for years, with the latest iteration being incorporated in the new helmets worn by F-35 Lightning II pilots, the engineers said the tactical ground missions put high demands on the operators over extended periods of time and varying environments.

Beware of witches Wednesday night by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Residents living off-base might experience some weird things happening in their neighborhood Wednesday night. Residents should keep a watchful eye on their houses and vehicles Wednesday when Germans observe “Hexennacht,” or Witches Night. Vehicles should be parked in garages and any loose items around the house, such as door mats, decoration items and flower pots, should be placed inside so they won’t be stolen by late-night pranksters. Legend says that on the night of April 30, evil ghosts represented by cold weather, snow and darkness meet with witches and demons at Blocksberg hill in the Harz mountains. There, they get into mischief before they take off on their broomsticks, pitchforks and billy goats at midnight. Today, it’s a custom for mainly children and teenagers to play tricks on neighbors. They ring doorbells and run off, put mustard on door handles, hide floor mats and trash cans, remove garden gates and wrap cars in toilet paper. Sometimes, older children or adults do destructive things like lifting drainage covers in the middle of the road or moving traffic signs. Motorists are asked to be very careful at night and the following morning, because these actions create safety hazards and result in property damage. German Polizei will patrol the neighborhoods that night and take appropriate action, if necessary. The origin of witches night goes back to Pagan times, when people believed evil ghosts tried to prevent the “Queen of Spring” from entering the country. Witches and demons were masters of people and things, so people did a lot to protect themselves.

Many villages put up May trees and celebrate May fests the night of April 30 or on May 1.

They hid billy goats and broomsticks so witches would not be able to ride on them through the night and do evil things. It was an unwritten law that children must not get beaten with a broomstick, because it could be a witch’s tool. Also, socks were put cross-shaped on children’s beds, pentagrams were put over house entrances or sacred salt was scattered over the threshold. Residents used several herbs known to ban witches

to smoke out houses and stables. Herbs included rue, St. John’s wort and juniper. Another German tradition that is observed at the beginning of May is the “dance into May.” Various associations and sports clubs sponsor “Tanz in den Mai” with live music in community halls, sports gyms, or other facilities that house dancing halls. Dances will be offered at 8 p.m. in Katzweiler’s community hall, Lautertalhalle and in the Dorfgemeinschaftshaus in Elschbach. In several villages in the KMC, the May tree will be put up and May fest will be celebrated. Sometimes this ceremony is combined with a village fest. The May tree usually is a fir with the lower branches stripped and only the treetop untouched. The pole is decorated with colorful ribbons and craftsmen’s trade ornaments like sausages for the butchers, pretzels for the bakers, or carved wooden figures. May poles symbolize the beginning of spring and hope for a good harvest. On Wednesday, May trees will be put up at 7 p.m. on Rathausplatz in Schallodenbach and 6 p.m. on Drehenthalerhof (part of Otterberg). On Thursday, May fests will start at 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the school yard in Niederkirchen; 10 a.m. at the Dorfplatz in Hirschhorn and the Dorfplatz in Bruchmühlbach; and 11 a.m. in Obernheim-Kirchenarnbach. Germany and some other European countries also observe Labor Day Thursday. Labor Day is a legal holiday, and stores will be closed. In 1890, May 1 was proclaimed as the day of the working class by the first international workers’ congress in Paris. It was a day to fight for an eighthour workday and other working-class rights. Nowadays, trade unions and workers meet for assemblies, demonstrations and political speeches.

POV shipping program undergoes changes by Mitch Chandran Headquarters Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill — The Department of Defense’s privately owned vehicle shipping program will undergo several changes starting Thursday. Several vehicle processing centers, where privately owned vehicles are dropped off and picked up, will relocate. With the exception of eight cities that will close their vehicle processing locations, many others will remain in the same city, but provide services at a different location and street address. Others, primarily overseas, will continue to operate at the same address and location, simply under new management. In addition, a new website, www.pcsmypov.com, has been established for service members to request and track their POV shipments. A new contractor will manage daily vehicle processing at vehicle processing centers worldwide. International Auto Logistics will assume the contract from American Auto Logistics to manage the daily activities associated with the POV contract for processing service member’s vehicles worldwide. Eight of the current 46 VPCs will permanently close Thursday in both U.S. and overseas locations. VPCs slated for closure in the U.S. are located in New Orleans, La.; Edison, N.J.; Orlando, Fla.; and Oakland, Calif.

Overseas vehicle processing centers that are now closed, or are slated for closure, include Mannheim, Germany (closed); Royal Air Force Croughton, England; RAF Menwith Hill, England; and Seville, Spain. “It is important to note that American Auto Logistics will still be on hand at these eight VPC locations until Aug. 1 to service already processed vehicles until each VPC becomes empty,” said Craig McKinley, supervisory transportation management specialist for the personal property directorate. “These eight VPCs on the closure list will not accept new vehicles for processing after April 30.” Additionally, AAL’s website, www. whereismypov.com, will remain active until all vehicles in their possession have been delivered. For more information, contact the transportation office or personal property office. Starting Thursday, customers who desire to ship their privately owned vehicle should call to make an appointment at a vehicle processing center. For U.S. domestic appointments: 855-389-9499 For appointments in Germany: 0800-227-7447 For any other locations: 00800-227-7447 Each year, DOD ships about 68,000 privately owned vehicles with about 8,500 of them requiring storage for some length of time. The following overseas VPCs will be vacated by American Auto Logistics on Wednesday and then closed for all but emergency drop-offs

with International Auto Logistics Thursday to May 2. The facilities will reopen May 5 for all vehicles. To aid in the transition, Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command urges customers to reduce traffic and provide the additional time needed for contractors to transition responsibilities: • Chievres, Belgium: Chievres Air Base, Bldg. 46, Belgium 7950 • Baumholder, Germany: Gebaeude 8716, Raum 1-3 Smith Barracks AM Bahnof/Bldg. 8716 55774 Baumholder, Germany • Grafenwöhr, Germany: U.S. Grafenwoehr Base, 322 Shiloh Avenue, 92655 Grafenwoehr, Germany • Kaiserslautern, Germany: Kapaun Air Station Bldg. 2806 67661 Kaiserslautern, Germany • Schweinfurt, Germany: Conn Barracks Custer St., Bldg. 35 97421 Schweinfurt, Germany • Spangdahlem, Germany: Spangdahlem Air Base Bldg. 222, 54529 Spangdahlem, Germany • Wiesbaden, Germany: Mainz Kastel Housing Area Bldg.

MK Air Base showcases capabilities during Different School Week Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs MIHAIL KOGALNICEANU, Romania — Romanian and U.S. service members and airport employees showcased their occupational specialties and unique service equipment during Different School Week April 7 to 11 at Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base. Different School Week is done all over Romania every year. The purpose is to get children out of the classroom and learn in a different environment. There are many field trips planned to different locations, said Air Force Maj. James J. Muniz, deputy senior airfield authority for MK Air Base. “We did not set this up on our own, but were asked to participate by the Romanian military and civil airfield,” Muniz said. “It was very much a joint mission between the U.S. and Romanian militaries and the civil side of the airport.” The mission of military personnel hosting Romanian students ranging from age 6 to 18 on MK Air Base was to show them the various Romanian and U.S. missions. Throughout the week, more than 800 Romanian students from 15 schools visited. They enjoyed static displays and interacted with the U.S. Army, Marines, Air Force and Navy, as well as the Romanian air force. “Not only did the military get a chance to show off their unique missions here at MK, but the civilian airport also hosted these children,” Muniz said. “This is important because Romania is our host, and this is a great opportunity for us to show them what we do.” The Romanian children were

free to explore several static displays from the tenant units of MK Air Base. The joint fire department, which includes Soldiers from multiple units and Airmen from the 48th Civil Engineering Squadron, brought two fire trucks and let the students climb into the cab and use the sirens. The Air Force also showed off the front-mounted hoses by spraying water into the air. Security forces Airmen from the 52nd Security Forces Squadron and military police Soldiers from the 202nd Military Police Company, 93rd Military Police Battalion, 89th Military Police Brigade brought a police squad car and showed the school children how to use the radio and external speaker systems. They also let the students try on their protective vests, helmets and masks. Finally, they let the children try on their handcuffs and hold collapsible batons. “It was fun showing the kids how to use the loud speakers on our vehicle and hearing them talk to their friends from inside the squad car,” said Pfc. Tyheem A. Alphonso, military policeman assigned to the 202nd MP Co. “They were all really excited to be here, and you could tell by the smiles on their faces they were having a good time.” The Romanian air force had its own static displays, showcasing the IAR330 Puma helicopter and the MIG-21 Lancer jet. Children were allowed to climb into the jet’s cockpit and wear a pilot’s helmet and mask. As an added bonus, U.S. service members were also afforded the opportunity to explore the Romanian aircraft. “Climbing into the jet was awesome,” said U.S. Army Maj. Edward A. Brown, 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s Regional Support Element

communications officer. “Not many people will get an opportunity to see Romanian military equipment, let alone climb in and see it up close.” The Air Force’s 780th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron also highlighted its aircraft with a static displayed C-17 aircraft. Children were allowed to climb up the loading ramp, explore the cargo hold and see the cockpit. Some groups of school children even saw a C-17 take off from MK Air Base during their visit. The 780th EAS also displayed a deicing vehicle, used to clear an aircraft’s external hull of ice, and elevated cargo loader, designed to raise personnel up to unload an aircraft. The Marine Corps’ Black Sea Rotational Force, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines brought a variety of vehicles and weapons for the Romanian school children to hold and see. They brought mortar tubes, M-240 and M-2

machine-guns, up-armored Humvees, vehicle retrieval trucks and construction vehicles. The students could hold the weapons, look down optic scopes and climb into their various vehicles. “It’s great that these kids get a chance to come out here and hang out with us for a little while. Kids always enjoy getting to play with our weapons systems,” said Lance Cpl. Dylan B. Hanks, squad leader assigned to BSRF. “This is also a good opportunity for them to meet us and see that we’re friendly.” As the week drew to a close, the groups of Romanian children left with a better understanding of U.S. and Romanian military capabilities and equipment. “This is nothing new to me since my father is in the Romanian air force, but my friends are very excited to see this,” said Julian Cozme, son of Romanian air force Maj. Vasile Cozme. “They are amazed by this.”
