AE, Ramstein units provide critical support after Kabul attacks Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Leslie Keopka 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Approximately 25 personnel came together on a realworld aeromedical evacuation mission Aug. 9 on Ramstein to save the lives of service members injured after recent attacks in Kabul. The medical professionals were a collection of KMC Fire Emergency Services, Aeromedical Evacuation and Critical Care Air Transport Team personnel who assisted with medical treatment during the seven-hour trip from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. The 10th Aeromedical Evacuation Operations Team was responsible for providing manpower for patient transport and support for the 455th Expeditionary Aeromedical Squadron’s CCATT and AE See AIRMEN AID, Page 2

Thomas, 86th AW commander. “We have combat airlift and aeromedical evacuation forces, but just as big, if not bigger, is being able to generate airpower.” Ray toured facilities from the 86th AW including the air traffic control tower and the munitions facility and then the Kapaun Air Station dining facility for lunch. He also had the opportunity to witness the 435th AGOW and 435th AEW’s capability to provide ondemand expeditionary airfield and was

Team versus individuals; fostering team success


by Chief Master Sgt. Jeffrey Kernodle 786th Civil Engineer Squadron chief enlisted manager Are we creating a culture of “team” or one of “individuals”? As leaders, we are expected to develop effective, efficient teams and merge the talents of our subordinates. However, it’s easy to shift our focus toward individual recognition, and it has the potential to come at the expense of team success. Whatever we emphasize will become the priority of our organizations. As priorities shift toward the individual instead of the team, so does the cultural mindset. When our cultural mindset believes that individual success is more important than team suc-

cess, we lose our team’s loyalty. If people feel they are only rewarded for their personal achievements, we run the risk of losing every individual’s loyalty to the team. Why be a “team player” when it doesn’t result in recognition, promotion or advancement? When the cultural bias leans towards individual performance, individuals will start seeing their teammates as competitors instead of colleagues. Reinforcing the mindset of individual over team can also have the unintentional effect of creating an environment of information hoarding, undermining and ultimately negatively affecting the mission effectiveness of your organization. All of this isn’t to say that we should not be individually

Squadron’s CCATT and AE crews. “We truly love our job here,” said Maj. Catherine Ortega, 10th AEOT officer in charge. “Whether (there are) 40 patients or one, an infant or a wounded warrior, American or allied force, we work our hardest to deliver unsurpassed mission and crew support.” The patients were transported to Ramstein on a C-17 Globemaster III and for one of the pilots, this was his first AE mission. “This is one of the most humbling experiences I have had in my career,” said U.S. Air Force Capt. Mychol Alexander, 816th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron aircraft commander. “To be able to bring someone out of the combat zone and work

briefed on current NATO partnership training. “It’s important to familiarize our (commander) with our unique mission,” said Maj. Craig Towlson, 435th AGOW plans and programs chief and event organizer. “We have a ton of capabilities and are spread out across the U.S. Air Force in Europe and Air Forces Africa area of operations … to borrow the wing historian’s analogy, we are kind of a multitool. We have a ton of different capabilities that span across five different mission sets.” During his visits to the 86th AW squadrons, Ray coined six Airmen in recognition of their individual impact to go above and beyond. “To be a good wingman, you have to be a good Airman and care for yourself before you can care for others,” Thomas said. “That’s something we’re all focusing on here.” While speaking with group

and save a life is without a doubt one of the noblest things I have done.” Because time is of the essence for medical emergencies, Alexander said his crew was instrumental to the mission success. “My (team’s) responsibility was to ensure the aircraft was in the correct state to bring the service members safely to Ramstein and work with the AE doctors and nurses to ensure they had everything they needed to do their job in keeping the patients alive and well,” Alexander said. Airmen from several career fields utilized their training while working together to save the lives of the injured service members. The patients were transported to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to receive further care.

rewarding our stellar performers. The challenge lies with aligning team and individual accomplishments. When leadership is able to shift emphasis towards collaboration and the team’s success while making individual accomplishments a subset, the team is more likely to thrive. While a team may have one MVP-caliber individual, every member of that team needs to first be judged by the overall success of the team, how they advance the team and then by their individual performance. When individuals see leadership rewarding them using a team-first mindset, they will shift their priorities as well. As their priorities shift toward team success, the organization will foster a culture of teamwork. Former San Francisco 49er

head coach Bill Walsh said it well, “victory is produced by and belongs to all. Winning a Super Bowl results from your whole team not only doing their individual jobs but perceiving that those jobs contributed to overall success. The trophy doesn’t belong just to a superstar, CEO or head coach.” In the Air Force, our “victory” is measured by our ability to execute our primary mission, “fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace.” While we may not all walk away with a trophy, by correctly targeting our recognition programs and ensuring individual recognition is tied to team success, we not only foster a team-first culture, but we guarantee continued victory.

commanders and Airmen, Ray stressed the importance of remembering why what they do is important. “When you’re driving home every day, remember the reason we come to work — to produce air power,” Ray said. “Being in

this location, we influence everything important. What the Airmen do every day is so valuable to the mission and isn’t lost on me, but I need your help making sure when they come to work every day, they remember the power comes from here.”

These activities also serve as a setting for camaraderie and socializing, another domain of the CAF program. “The Resilience Day is about getting out of the office, having fun, meeting new friends and cheering on Team Ramstein,� Devitt said. “Many people are away from their genetic families, so we are their family here.� For the spiritual side of the program, the 86th AW chaplains plan to host a barbecue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the event. When physical, social and spiritual resilience are strong, it can lead to a healthy mental attitude, the final domain of the CAF program. “Everyone should take advantage of these Resilience

“Never in my life have I seen anything like this,” Tousignant said. “There seems to be gorgeous castles at every corner. There are luscious vineyards across the mountainsides, and, of course, the Rhine River is breathtaking. I have done this ride four times, and every time I see something different that amazes me.” With children of his own, Tousignant hopes to continue participating in these fundraisers and help pave a better

future for them. “My boys are my legacy,” Tousignant said. “It feels great being able to help improve their lives and seeing how excited the team is to do the same is incredible.

From July 12 to 20, the team conducted two expeditionary airfield assessments, working with their hosts from Ukraine’s 299th Assault Brigade and the 7th Tactical Aviation Brigade, to identify requirements to bring their respective airfields to NATO standards. “This event is a great opportunity to strengthen our partnership with our Ukrainian allies,” said U.S. Air Force Capt.

units, 435th CRG-Detachment 1, 435th Air Mobility Squadron and the 435th Construction and Training Squadron, assessed airfield conditions, availability of support services and the general operational

and support environment around the airfield. They also familiarized Ukrainian air force personnel on NATO-interoperable airfield requirements. The assessment team met with

several subject matter experts from the Ukrainian air force and discussed topics ranging from air base security to support services. They also discussed considerations for exercises and future partnership building events. “Bringing the variety of subject matter experts allowed us to interact with more of our Ukrainian counterparts.” said U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Adrian Espinosa, 435th CRG-Det 1 Air Advisor Flight air adviser and fuel specialist. “We each came back with observations that could lead to future security cooperation engagements.” The assessments came from a Ukraine and U.S. joint commission established in October 2014. The commission’s goal is to build an achievable, sustainable engagement plan to institute fundamental reform, build capability, grow capacity and develop transformed Ukrainian armed forces. According to Weskalnies, the assessment marked another successful event for the dedicated Airmen of the 435th CRG. Both countries learned a great deal from one another and continued to enhance interoperability and build mutual respect with each other.

Hohenfels Training Area cleared to land C-130 aircraft on new airstrip

Capt. Matthew D. Pride, lead planner for exercise Swift Response 15, Joint Multinational Readiness Center, discusses safety plans with German firefighters prior to testing the recently resurfaced and extended short takeoff and landing strip at Hohenfels.

by Sgt. Alicia M. Brocuglio 130th Public Affairs Detachment, Connecticut Army National Guard HOHENFELS, Germany — A joint team from the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army conducted the first C-130J Super Hercules landing at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in over two years July 29. The test landing is a precursor to Exercise Swift Response 15, which will

occur at Hohenfels in August. “Today certifies and validates the landing sequence that is going to take place as part of Swift Response,” said Capt. Matthew D. Pride, an exercise planner for JMRC. “The intent is to have 42 landing sequences. This was an opportunity to touchdown before final execution.” Exercise Swift Response 15 will include loading and airdropping approximately 1,400 multinational service members within a four-hour window.

An 86th Airlift Wing C-130J Super Hercules aircraft comes to a stop July 29 at Hohenfels Training Area. The aircraft was used to test the capabilities of the recently resurfaced and extended short takeoff and landing strip at Hohenfels, the only dirt airstrip in Germany.

Pilots of the 37th Airlift Squadron, 86th Airlift Wing, flew in from Ramstein and performed three successful landing and takeoff cycles with the C-130. “It was a successful landing, and (the short takeoff and landing strip) is ready to support C-130’s.” said Air Force Master Sgt. David Hough, airfield manager, 435th Contingency Response Group, Ramstein. “This project has been a year in the making,” said Major Charles A. Pinto,

Texas Army National Guard, Troop Construction Program, JMRC. “The purpose (of this revamped STOL) is to integrate airfield operations into training with multinational and allied partners.” The short takeoff and landing, known as STOL, was a small strip up until June when it was extended by the 201st Red Horse Squadron, Pennsylvania Air National Guard, to support larger aircraft. “It was the Air National Guard that did all the work. They did the design and then started the construction,” Pinto said. “JMRC brought them here and made sure they were supported. It was good to see all the hard work come together.” STOL has been suspended for the last two years from landing C-130 aircraft. More recently, the airstrip was only able to support unmanned aerial vehicle and helicopter landings. The airstrip had to be surveyed and signed off by the airfield commander on Ramstein, and the landing and takeoff was the final phase to clear the airstrip. “It’s huge,” Hough said, commenting on the additional capabilities of the new air-

strip. “This is the only dirt, or semi-prepared, landing zone in Germany.” Landing on a semi-prepared strip is a requirement for operations to stay current, and this field will now provide that opportunity for allies, partners and American forces to improve interoperability of air operations. “This strip enhances the capability of the training center and allows us to bring in a complex set of training exercises and scenarios,” Pride said. These exercises are part of NATO troops training for brigade-size operations to prepare to respond to a global crisis. Exercises are conducted to improve interoperability and provide U.S. and NATO training while building relationships and effectiveness as part of Joint Multinational Training Command. “In terms of validating global response forces as not just a principal, but to validate capabilities to project anywhere in the world, seasoning the STOL is a critical objective for the exercise,” Pride said. “It has been quite a year, and a lot of units have come through. To see the C-130 land here today is quite an accomplishment.”

AF launches career path tool resources for Airmen

WASHINGTON — The Air Force recently launched an improved and re-branded Career Path Tool, called MyVector, which encourages mentorship between Airmen at all levels. The first step Airmen should take for success with MyVector is to volunteer to be mentors and share their experience and expertise with other Airmen. “Mentoring and networking are two of the most important things for leaders to embrace,” said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. “Mentoring represents an investment, one where we may not know the impact until many years later.” The reconfigured online platform supporting mentoring has a modern look and feel. These new configurations support not only the traditional by-name request method for requesting a mentor, but they also provide a mentor-matching capability based on weighted characteristics identified by the Airman searching for a mentor.

MyVector has a real-time mentoring plan, discussion forums, a bullet tracker to document accomplishments and the ability to dialogue online with your mentor. A resource page is also available to assist both parties with mentoring questions and relationships. “Air Force mentoring fosters a culture of inclusion for all Airmen while maximizing their strengths and is aligned with the culture of the Air Force for mission accomplishment,” said Dr. Patricia McGill, doctrine, institutional competencies and mentoring chief. “MyVector captures Airmen experiences within and across Air Force specialty codes and occupational series. Mentors will be able to provide feedback on their mentees’ career progression.” Mentorship requires time, effort and dedication. To assist with this process, there is a “Mentoring Checklist” located in Air Force Manual 36-2643, “Air Force Mentoring Program,” which outlines how to plan for the different mentoring sessions. “No matter your age, it’s important to help each other,” James said. “Seek a mentor and be a mentor.”

Today: Sauce Bolognese What do we need? • 150 grams ground meat (pork and beef) per person • Sunflower and olive oil • Tomato paste • Sliced tomatoes in a jar or a can (you can get it on the economy) • A bit of red wine • Onions, garlic, salt, ground white pepper, a bit of sugar, a bit of chili and oregano


Add spices to the ground meat (except the oregano). Mix it properly and let it rest for about half an hour. Dice the onions and the garlic to small pieces. Take a pot with a large diameter to have enough surface to roast the ground meat properly. Heat the pot. Add sunflower and olive oil (half and half) into the pot. Don’t be afraid to add a lot of oil into the pot. Add the ground meat and let it roast on medium heat for half an hour. Stir well. Then add

the small diced onions. Let them roast for about 10 minutes. Then add the small diced garlic. Be careful not to burn the garlic! Add the tomato paste. Let it roast for approximately five minutes. Be careful not to burn it. Then add a sip of red wine to it. Let it reduce. Add another sip of red wine. Add the sliced tomatoes and some water. Let it reduce. Add a little bit of water. Let it reduce. Add more water. Add the oregano (why do we add the oregano now? Because if we add it in the beginning of the roasting process, the oregano would burn, and we would have to throw the sauce away) and all the other spices. Then let it cook on low heat for 5 hours. Always take care to have enough water in the pot so that all meat is covered. When you now look into your pot you should have a nice red oil sea on top of your sauce. The red oil is what gives the nice red color to the noodles — and no, it’s not the sauce ;-) I am sure you will enjoy your sauce Bolognese!

See you next week for another delicious recipe!

AF vice chief of staff retires with nearly 44 years of service by Staff Sgt. Whitney Stanfield Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs Command Information WASHINGTON — Airmen said goodbye and good luck to the Air Force vice chief of staff during his retirement ceremony Aug. 7 on Joint Base Andrews, Maryland. Almost 44 years and 18 assignments later, Gen. Larry O. Spencer stood in front of friends, family and Airmen for the last time in his Air Force career. “God placed me in the Air Force and took me from airman basic to a four-star general, which must be classified as a miracle,” Spencer said. Spencer, a native of Washington, D.C., enlisted in the Air Force in 1971. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering technology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, and became a distinguished graduate of Officer Training

job, big or small,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. “As a captain, he was listed as one of the Outstanding Young Men of America.” During his career, Spencer held several extraordinary positions, including the first Air Force officer to serve as assistant chief of staff in the White House Military Office. “Larry has told people for years, don’t be scared of competition. That’s what makes us stronger. It’s what’s makes us a better Air Force,” Welsh said. “And every time people look at the

food chain, in Larry’s specialty areas, he tends to be at the top.” Although retired, Spencer’s heritage will live on in the form of the Gen. Larry O. Spencer Innovation Award, established on March 20 by Welsh. The award will annually recognize Airmen who come up with creative and efficient ways to save the Air Force money and time. The award represents Spencer’s devotion to Airmen throughout his career and his steadfast support of the “Every Dollar Counts” campaign. “During the next phase in

my life, I hope to attend more football games,” Spencer said. “It would be a nice retirement gift if my team did well this year. “People have asked me how I feel about being in Washington, D.C. for so long, and I can only sum that up with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., and that is, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I’m free at last,’” Spencer said. The ceremony concluded with a long line of people waiting to say their goodbyes and to thank Spencer for his service.

Healthy grilling by Giovanna ReyesAlexander Public Health Command Region-Europe The smell of barbecue continues to linger through the air during the summer months. Before you fire up the grill this year, consider what options you might have to make it a healthy, as well as satisfying fun experience. According to the dietary guidelines for Americans 2010, a healthful diet should include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. It should also contain lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts. The guidelines also suggest limiting saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt and added sugar. These should also be done in conjunction with ensuring that one does not exceed their recommended caloric intake. Healthy eating practices

should be included as part of our plan to stay ready and resilient. The Performance Triad recognizes that proper nutrition is an integral part of ensuring that our community enjoys a great quality of life. Having a healthy meal and a delicious meal are not mutually exclusive. Healthy cooking techniques such as grilling can capture the flavor of foods without adding extra calories. According to a Botsford registered dietician, the high heat from the grill preserves the foods moisture thereby keeping it tender. This eliminates the need to add oil or butter during cooking and makes you less reliant on sauces or other condiments to enhance flavor. To ensure that the meat is cooked thoroughly, baking meat covered in the oven before cooking on the grill may assure food is cooked to a safe temperature. This suggestion is, however, not necessary to achieve the specified inter-

nal temperature, especially for the seasoned griller or outdoor chef. These methods are great ways to reduce the fat content of meals without sacrificing taste or food safety. The high heat from grilling also causes excess fat on meats to drip off, thereby lowering the fat content of the meat itself. It is important to remember, however, that the addition of sour cream, butter, sauces and toppings add fat and calories to the meal and should be used sparingly or in moderation so it does not counteract the benefits of this cooking practice. Certain cuts and types of meat are also higher in fat than others. During the summer, the Centers for Disease Control recommends choosing leaner options such as skinless chicken or turkey, fish and lean pork. Using the chicken breast is also a lower-fat option than darker meats such as the thigh or leg. While the summer is

still here, try to cut back on the fats in some of the aforementioned ways if you choose to enjoy ribs, steaks, brats and hamburgers. When making condiments and sauces, utilize some of the great European options available. For example, make low-fat or non-fat yogurt dressings instead of mayonnaise-based sauces and dressings to cut calories. Healthy eating also encompasses eating a variety of foods from the different food groups. Fruit and vegetables can be prepared on the grill as well as being part of meals as a side dish. Shish kebabs are a fun way to incorporate fruits and vegetables on the

grill. When they are grilled, they tend to retain more of their vitamins and minerals. Buying fruits and vegetables that are in season also ensures that your friends and family are getting the freshest produce at better prices. Be creative and research ways to incorporate some of the local fruits and vegetables available in Germany that may not be familiar — they may be well worth the experiment. Variety is the spice of life, so enjoy the different foods that can be part of any summer celebrations. Remember to eat in moderation, and always practice safety when cooking outdoors on the grill.

Barbecue grill safety, outdoor cooking precautions by U.S. Army Installation Management Command

such as hanging shirttails or dangling strings. • Never leave a grill unattended.

According to the Barbecue Industry Association, 66 million Americans cook outdoors regularly, and a number of them are treated in emergency rooms for injuries related to charcoal, propane and wood-burning grills. Outdoor cooking injuries can be avoided by observing the following safety precautions.

Cooking with propane, LP, gas grills • Read the owner’s manual and operating instructions carefully. • Use the exact type of tank and fuel specified. • Check hoses and valve connections often by pouring soapy water on the connection points. If bubbles appear, retighten the connections and test again. • Transfer and store liquid propane cylinders in an upright position and never where temperatures can reach 125 degrees. • Whether using a grill lit by a match or pushbutton igniter, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Before cooking • Instruct children on the dangers of a lit grill. • Choose a safe grilling location away from children’s play areas and areas of heavy traffic. The area should be well ventilated to avoid danger from carbon monoxide and other combustion byproducts. • Never grill inside or even in a semi-enclosed area, such as a tent or camper. Always grill on a flat, stable platform. • Don’t wear clothing that could contact the fire

Cooking with charcoal grills • Never start a fire with gasoline. • If using an electric fire starter, use an insulated

indoor or outdoor cord plugged into an outlet protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter. • Be sure the ground is dry, and do not stand in water when plugging the starter into an outlet. • The starter will stay hot for several minutes after use, therefore place it out of the reach of children and on a surface that will not burn. • If using instant-light briquettes, spread instantlight briquettes into a single layer, making sure they touch at the edges. Light several of them at their edges with a match. • If using standard charcoal briquettes, stack standard briquettes in a pyramid to allow air to circulate around them, causing them to light faster. Apply lighter fluid before lighting, and wait at least one minute before lighting to allow the lighter fluid to soak in. Never add fluid to the coals once they’ve been lit.

Hamburg zoo and aquarium by Karl Weisel U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Marketing Office No trip to northern Germany is complete without a stop to the bustling harbor city of Hamburg. Home to a rich array of museums, a bustling fish market and intriguing historical landmarks, Hamburg attracts international visitors from far and wide. While enjoying a stay in the cosmopolitan city, be sure to find some time to visit the Tierpark und TropenAquarium Hagenbeck, Hagenback’s zoo and aquarium. Those with younger travelers in tow will especially appreciate the chance to interact with newborn animals ranging from penguins to lion cubs. A short U-bahn ride away from the center of town by taking the U-2 to the Hagenbeck’s Tierpark station, delivers one to the entrances of both the zoo and aquarium. Several kilometers of paths lead visitors past a range of enclosures featuring more than 1,850 exotic animals. During the colder months when many of the animals such as the elephants prefer the indoors to the outdoors, zoo-goers are invited inside to view them from specially designed viewing platforms. Among the highlights of Tierpark Hagenbeck are the Eismeer, the Polar landscape, that offers both underground and above ground views of

animals including walruses, seals and polar bears; and the zoo’s assortment of critters that includes peacocks and other small rodents roaming freely through the park. Tropen-Aquarium Hagenbeck is worth a visit in itself. The indoor tropical landscape and aquarium begins with a visit to a large open room where a range of critters including Lori parakeets, ring-tailed lemurs, girdle lizards and chameleons scamper freely among the tropical plants. Don’t be surprised if a brazen lemur parks himself on your shoulder for a photo before scampering off

to chase a chameleon. Paths through the tropical maze take visitors past enclosures full of colorful frogs, deadly snakes and spiders, stalactite-clinging bats and more. Deep in the bowels of the facility, one can gaze up into large water tanks where sharks, stingrays, jellyfish and other underwater creatures swim. Feeding time is especially popular in the animal park — signs throughout the zoo area indicate when zoo personnel are scheduled to make their rounds. The zoo was founded by Carl Hagenbeck Jr. in 1907 from a collection of animals begun in 1863 by his father, Carl Hagenbeck Sr. The elder Hagenbeck, a Hamburg fishmonger, was also an exotic animal enthusiast. The zoo, like most of the city, was demolished in the bombing of Hamburg during World War II but was reconstructed after the war. Admission to the zoo and aquarium is €30 for adults or €21 for children ages 4 to 16. A family ticket for two adults and two children costs €85. Tickets can also be purchased separately for just the zoo or aquarium. For more information, visit www.hagenbeck.de/en/ tierpark/start.html.

Using public transportation in Germany Courtesy of the Herald Union Archive U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Traveling around Germany on public transportation can be a bit overwhelming at first, but with a little practice you can become comfortable with the system. The German transportation system offers coordinated public transportation travel throughout Germany. One ticket allows you to use any method of local transport in the area covered by the association, from regional express trains and underground trains to streetcars and buses, regardless of which method of travel you use to reach your destination. Riding the bus or streetcar For shorter trips, a simple one-stage bus ride should get you where you need to go. If you want to ride a bus or a streetcar you will have to wait at the “Haltestelle,” stopping place or bus stop. A sign with a big ‘H’ indicates a bus or streetcar stop. A schedule will be posted at the stop showing what routes stop there, on what days and how often they run. Bus, streetcar and train schedules will have two different schedules: one for work days and a separate schedule for weekends and German holidays. When the bus or streetcar arrives, you may enter at the front, middle or rear of the bus. If you need to buy a ticket, enter at the front and buy one from the driver. If the door closest to you does not open automatically, press the button located next to the door, and it will open for you.

Getting off the bus can be a bit tricky. Make sure you know where you need to get off, and start moving toward the door before the bus comes to a stop. If no one has already done so, press the “Wagen Haelt,” or bus stop button, so the bus driver will know someone needs to get off at the upcoming stop. When the bus finally stops, if the door does not open automatically, then you need to press the button near the door for it to open. To get back to your starting place, normally you can catch a return bus on the opposite side of the street. If your stopping point is a oneway street, you will need to search around for a stop on the same bus or streetcar line that heads back to your starting point. Longer trips may require a combination of bus, streetcar or train.

Taking the train Train schedules are prominently posted throughout train stations. You will find two schedules: “Ankunft,” for arrivals, and “Abfahrt”, for departures. Departures are listed on yellow charts; arrivals are listed on white. All trains arriving or departing from that station are listed chronologically starting at midnight. Times are listed using the 24-hour clock. Symbols indicate the services onboard as well as which days that train operates. The “Gleis,” track and train number and the arrival or departure platform number, are also listed. In major stations, there will also be large automated display boards showing the trains

The ticket machines are equipped with a user display and 10-digit keypad to guide you through your purchase. Simply follow the instructions on the user screen. Select your destination from the directory. Use the 10-digit keypad to enter the two or four digit destination number listed to the left of the destination. Then press the button in the key block under the keypad for the appropriate ticket, adult or child. Check the destination number and selected ticket details on the screen, and pay the amount displayed. Take your ticket and any change from the tray. The machines will also accept payment in banknotes, specifically €5, €10, €20 and €50. The screen will display the banknotes accepted depending on the fare amount and the change available.

Legal advice: German traffic violations Courtesy of U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Legal Office If you or your dependant receives a traffic violation (i.e. speeding, running a red light, etc.) from the German authorities you will receive an administrative order. The notice either comes through the mail, or will be served by your commander, immediate supervisor or the International Law branch of the legal office. Once you received the administrative order or questionnaire, you only have a two-week deadline from the date of receipt, not from the date of postmark, to respond. The administrative order is an offer made by the German authorities which provides you an opportunity to pay a fine for having violated German law instead of appearing in court.

An administrative order is not proof of guilt, and no judgment of guilt or innocence has been rendered. German law gives you the right to object to the violation notice. If you decide to protest the administrative order, you may do so in writing or by personally going to the issuing authority. A written protest must make reference to the case file number and should state in detail the grounds for objection to the administrative order. The protest has to be written in German. You have to file the objection within two weeks from the date the administrative order is served on you. The fact that the payment or protest, objection, is in the mail at the end of the stated period is not sufficient. The payment or the protest must be received by the German authorities within the stated period. If you do not object, the order becomes final.

You should make a careful determination in contesting the administrative order because your total costs may substantially increase if later court proceedings result in a judgment against you. If you are involved in an automobile accident, there may be a claim for injury or damage against your insurance company. Therefore, you should immediately inform your insurance company about the accident. Your insurance company might need a German police report or a military police report. If you receive a German notice related to the accident, you should immediately report it to your insurance company. Notifying the insurance company of the receipt of such a German document neither affects your rights, nor your obligations, under German law. If you have further questions, contact your nearest legal assistance office.

Don’t trash your integrity: properly dealing with trash by 2nd Lt. Michael Peterson 786th Civil Engineer Squadron Disposing of trash improperly is a question of personal integrity, especially when you are aware that offbase residents are not authorized to bring their personal property refuse onto any installation for disposal in facility dumpsters, recycle centers, or in military family housing underground dumpsters. As military members, we uphold integrity to the highest level, but why ruin it with a small thing such as bringing trash on base and dumping it illegally? There is no need for an integrity check. Just do what is right, even when no one is looking. Off-base residents automatically pay a refuse and recycling fee as part of their housing costs and must utilize these local community collection services versus sneaking additional tonnage onto installations and increasing refuse and recycling costs unnecessarily. Recycling is the law in Germany, and proper disposal of personal property is the responsibility of each resident using the collection services appropriate to their community. For those living in on-base MFH units, residents are responsible for

keeping living areas clean and safe. This includes adhering to the rules of disposing refuse and recycling materials. You may be charged removal and clean-up fees and have your privilege to live in base housing terminated if you abandon property inside or outside of your quarters. Oversized items and hazardous waste materials are your responsibility to dispose of at the nearest recycling center. Below are some general rules of engagement for properly dealing with trash: •  No  off-base  refuse  or  recyclables should come onto installations and be placed into any dumpster, underground container or base recycle centers. (Exception: up to 60 days after arrival and when out-processing; requires PCS orders). •  Place  trash  inside  dumpsters  or  underground containers, not on the ground by the containers since trash left outside the containers will not be collected. •  Bulk  trash  items  such  as  furniture, grills, mattresses, etc., should only be placed on the sidewalk near the underground dumpsters on the Sunday night after 6 p.m. prior to the scheduled pick-up date. From October to April, pick-up is on the second and the last Monday of every month. From

May to September, pick-up is every Monday. Bulk trash day is not a permit to leave anything and everything beside the dumpsters. Household trash bags, cardboard boxes and recycling should all still be discarded appropriately. •  Do not place bulk trash on top of  underground containers, but on sidewalks near the containers. •  Tires  are  restricted  as  “special”  waste because they cause damage to the environment. Turn in your tires to the vendor, KMC recycling centers, or the Ramstein auto salvage yard. •  Waste  oil  can  soak  into  the  ground and enter the ground water in local ditches, streams, lakes and even our drinking water supply. A single drop of oil contaminates 1 million drops of water. Turn your waste oil in to the KMC recycling centers or the MWR Auto Skills facilities. •  Cameras and manned patrols are  being established to prevent illegal dumping. •  Personnel guilty of improper and  illegal dumping will be charged for the full cost of removal and cleanup. Help is always available. If you have questions, reach out to your German landlords or neighbors for more information on how to dispose your trash properly. Also, the

Ramstein and Vogelweh Housing Office  has  brochures  about  recycling  in Germany. Respect the host nation by learning their garbage and recyclable collection system. For more information, call the civil engineering customer service line at 489-7703 or the Ramstein Recycling Center at 480-4191.

and departure time of the next train. If you arrive early, the sign may be showing a train that comes before yours. When the train arrives at the platform, you will notice that each car has a sign on or near each door showing the train and car numbers, origin, destination and major stops along the way. Make sure you are at the platform before your train’s scheduled departure time. German trains are generally punctual. Connections are well-timed, so it is essential that the trains run on time. If you’re even a minute late, you might miss your train. The doors will close automatically when the train is ready to leave. On board the train Once the train has been underway for some time, the conductor will come through and ask for tickets. If you just boarded, present your ticket and passport if proof of age or residency is required as part of your ticket. The conductor will punch or stamp your ticket and return it to you. You will not need to show it again for the duration of your trip unless there is a change of conductors. Some lower-end trains no longer have conductors. Passengers on these trains are on the honor system. You must purchase all tickets

and reservations before you board these trains. Periodic spot checks are made and hefty fines are levied against those without valid tickets. Stops are announced shortly before arrival. If you miss the announcement, signs on the platforms will tell you where you are. If your train has them, the electronic displays at the ends of the coaches will show the name of the upcoming stop as you approach it. At some stations the train only stops for a minute or two, so if you’re not ready, you may end up taking an unscheduled diversion to the next stop. Once you get off the train, follow the “Ausgang,” or exit, signs to leave the station. Most stations have multiple exits, so double-check to make sure you’re headed in the right direction. If you are making connections, check the yellow departure schedules to find out which track your connecting train leaves from, then follow the signs directing you to that platform. Connection information is also usually announced on-board the trains as they approach major stations. Armed with everything you need to know to get around with Germany’s public transportation, you should be ready to visit castles, Christmas markets and countless other tourist places. For details on public transportation, contact your local service providers.

Parents need to bring Department of Defense ID number. For more information, call the dental clinic at 479-2210 or 0631-46-2210.

Fitness center improvements

Over the last two months, a new system and its associated hardware were installed to enable 24/7 access to Vogelweh Fitness Center. Another major project to ensure the safety of customers is a four-month fire detection installation project which began in July. Though the scope of the project is large, the facility will stay open. The VFC has partnered with the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron to design a phased approach to the project, allowing to keep half of the gym floor open. Despite the decrease in space, they will reposition equipment along the gym floor so customers will still be able to complete their workout. Portions of the project require closing the locker rooms, therefore, customers will have to find

Page 25

an alternate shower plan such as their home, dorm or lodging. Additionally, new resistance and cardio equipment is on order for all three fitness centers run by the 786th Force Support Squadron. The northside and southside fitness centers on Ramstein will see new equipment including resistance/pulley training equipment installed in the parent-child rooms. VFC has a project on the books that will convert a racquetball court to a parent-child room. For more information, call the Vogelweh Fitness Center manager at 489-7329.

The Enchanting Eltville Electoral Castle

Story and photos by Gemma Located on the Rhine River in the Rheingau wine region is the enchanting Eltville Electoral Castle (known in German as Kurfürstliche Burg). This 14th century castle is surrounded by vineyards, timbered framed houses, rose gardens and slow moving boats going up and down the river. Looking like it’s right out of a fairy tale, Eltville Electoral Castle is truly a delight for all your senses!


Receiving its’ town status in 1332, Eltville is the oldest town in the Rheingau region. The castle was built in 1330 by Balduin von Trier and completed in 1350 by Heinrich von Virneburg. The name of the castle comes from 14th and 15th century when the archbishops and electors of Mainz lived there. During the Holy Roman Empire, the princes who had the right to elect the German kings were called ‘Electors’. In 1635 the entire castle (except for the tower) was destroyed by Swedish

troops. The tower that I walked up has a Gutenberg memorial, which pays tribute to the famous inventor of movable type for the printing press and letterpress printing. The famous inventor was officially honored here in 1465. Still today visitors of this breathtaking castle can learn firsthand about Gutenberg’s accomplishments.

Visiting the Castle

Being that it is one of the most beautiful castles I have visited in Europe, I truly enjoyed my day walking about the castle grounds. You arrive first in the courtyard, in which your eyes will draw to the picturesque well in the center. My daughter asked for a penny and made a wish! The courtyard was inviting, especially the cool temperature even though it was over 100 degrees outside. Then I walked into the Gift Shop and Tourist-Information, which is at the base of the tower. The room of the gift shop used to be the recreation room for the castle servants. The shop offers a very nice selection of souvenirs, books, prints, gifts, wine samples

and more. Here is where you buy your 3 euro ticket to walk up the castle tower. Here you will find a winding stone staircase and the several rooms with displays. I really appreciated these rooms, especially since I could catch my breath. The 360 lookout room on top was a remarkable experience with a fantastic view. On one side you see the beautiful vineyard hills and the other a view of the Rhein River. The old lookout posts were where the men would stand and shoot their arrows through thin (still in tact) windows at invaders. I liked to look out and try to feel how they would feel looking at the very same scenery but many many years ago.

Outer Courtyard and Rose Garden

After leaving the tower, I headed to the rose garden on the well-preserved wooden covered bridge, which seemed frozen in time. Then the garden was so gorgeous that pictures hardly could do it justice. The sea of roses with an intoxicating smell made me feel like I

stumbled upon an area in ‘The Secret Garden,’ my favorite childhood book. Would you Like Your Very Own Castle for a Day? I was so surprised to learn that you can rent the castle for any private events such as weddings and family celebrations. Available to rent are different halls and the rose garden. This sounds like making a fairy tale party come true!

How to Get There

Eltville Electoral Castle is located 20 minutes southwest of Wiesbaden, 1 hour and 10 minutes northeast of Kaiserslautern and 2 hours and 30 minutes north of Stuttgart.

General Information

The castle’s address is the following: Burgstraße 1 65343 Eltville am Rhein Telephone:+49 (0) 6123 9098-0 Author’s Profile: Gemma is a mom, a veteran and an Army civilian living in Wiesbaden, Germany. With New Jersey roots, she is enjoying her extended European vacation.
