Azeri air force leaders participate in USAF Fire Rescue Partnership Training course by Senior Airman Caitlin Guinazu 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Leaders from the Azerbaijan Search and Rescue and Fire department participated in a U.S. Air Force Fire Rescue Partnership Training course Aug. 6 to 9 by the 435th Construction and Training Squadron. This familiarization course provided them a chance to further military relations and improve the partnership between the U.S. and Azeri air forces. During the course, Majs. Tofig Azizov and Vugar Bunyat-Zade, Azerbaijan Search and Rescue and Fire Fighter team chiefs, took the opportunity to learn about rope rescue, equipment and vehicle familiarization as well as a capes demonstration with the 86th Civil Engineer Squadron’s fire department. “As we are a younger country, we are building everything new.

Make it happen, Airmen by Gen. Frank Gorenc USAFE-AFAFRICA commander Airmen are no strangers to change. Our Air Force was born from change after an exhausting world war when nations were recovering and healing emotionally, physically and financially. The decades following World War II brought us numerous changes: hot and cold wars, technological and aerospace advancements, and manpower ups and downs. Like some of you, I’ve experienced many of these changes in my 34 years as an Airman. Today, U.S. Air Forces in Europe — Air Forces Africa con-

tinues the attack on America’s enemies despite extreme fiscal uncertainty. While this is another chapter in our storied existence, I realize many Airmen today have never experienced change of this magnitude. My experience has taught me that when we face seemingly unprecedented obstacles, Airmen always rise to the challenge. We overcome because our leadership is rock-solid and our people are innovative and extremely competent. I’m a true believer in that now more than ever, as we face uncertainty and a troubled world, the most important thing we can do is

grow and nurture our leaders. Leaders of all ranks balance the needs of the Air Force and our Airmen, offer vision, improve processes, execute the mission with a steadfast moral compass and never, ever compromise integrity. Leaders mentor future leaders. With strong leadership, Airmen make things better. As we navigate our way through 2013 and beyond, I am confident USAFE-AFAFRICA Airmen will make it happen no matter what we face ... you are the firm foundation of this command. Continue to trust your leadership, respect your peers and mentor fellow Airmen.

You get what you tolerate COMMENTARY

by Senior Master Sgt. Michael Pelletier 76th Airlift Squadron One of the most important things I have learned in the Air Force is to listen. Listen to those all around you — peers, supervisors and subordinates. Over the course of my career, I have listened to many people, one of which is a wise old chief master sergeant. One day while discussing an upcoming ceremony, some people started listing the need for spare formation members in case someone was to “fall out.” Chief immediately spoke up and said, we don’t need any spares, because you get what you tolerate. I wasn’t exactly sure what he meant by this, and lucky for me, Chief never missed an opportunity to explain his thoughts. He asked the question, “Why do people fall out?” We all answered with the standard list; people lock their knees, they aren’t hydrated, it’s hot; the list goes on. He answered all these with logic. Before every event including practices, we consistently remind people to hydrate, wiggle your toes, keep your mind in the event and continually refocus your vision not locking on a single point. Why then, with all this information and preparation, do we still need spares? Ceremonies

even go so far as to have medical services standing by “just in case.” In his words, we were planning a self-fulfilling prophecy. Where else in our military do we plan to fail to this degree, and when is it acceptable that our Airmen do it? Having been a member of the Presidential Honor Guard at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C., I take great pride in ceremonies. When I replay the countless ceremonies where my fellow Guardsmen and I stood on the White House lawn, at The Pentagon and The Tomb of The Unknown, I cannot remember a single time when the officer in charge, the guidon bearer, NCO in charge, flag team, first sergeant or the myriad other key positions fell out. Why? I ask myself — because we get what we tolerate. These individuals are no more superhuman or capable of standing for long periods than those who comprise the flight formations. These individuals simply won’t tolerate the thought of falling out, and their desire to perform their duties to the best of their abilities is what matters. Each of these people is driven by self-motivation to uphold the standards and expectations levied upon them. Somewhere between holding ourselves and those around us accountable, the

I have no doubt we will face even greater obstacles in Europe, Africa and around the world. But with leaders like you, I am optimistic about what we can accomplish for our great nation, and our European and African partners. As I said at my assumption of command, this opportunity is a dream come true and I am thrilled to be your commander. For such a time as this, I know this is where I belong. We are USAFE-AFAFRICA. Together, we are responsive decisive airpower and together we can overcome every change and challenge. Let’s make it happen, Airmen.

These individuals are no more superhuman or capable of standing for long periods than those who comprise the flight formations. standard has become convoluted. Why do we hold ourselves to one standard and our subordinates and peers to another? The concept of you get what you tolerate goes far beyond the ceremony. How many of us have watched someone walk by when they aren’t wearing the uniform according to regulations and said nothing? Watch and see how many stroll past trash in their work center, The Exchange or commissary. What is said to those who arrive to work late or leave early? Have you complained about the evaluation system, but still wrote firewall five enlisted performance reports on those you didn’t believe truly deserved it? Continue to ignore these types of things, and you will always get what you tolerate. I am thankful for the opportunities to listen to wise old chiefs like Chief MSgt. Kevin Slater. I’m sure many of us have been presented with countless nuggets of wisdom such as this throughout our careers. Listening to others is a great way to develop and learn. In sharing one of the lessons presented to me; “you get what you tolerate,” will you listen?

ensuring your smoke and fire alarms are in good working condition. This event is just one of the ways we can help community members keep themselves and their families safe at all times. Brown also added that he hopes events like these can help put a stop to what he says is currently the number one crime in the Kaiserslautern community. “The larceny of items out of automobiles is incredibly easy to prevent,” Brown said. “More than 90 percent of these cars were left unlocked and most left valuable items out in the open where criminals could see them.” Both Army and Air Force community members attended the event. Wendy Wilson and her husband Air Force Master Sgt. DeJanairo Wilson, 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing, arrived from Spangdahlem about a week ago. “I actually just saw the flyer earlier today while I was at an appointment. It’s our first time attending, and I think it’s a good event. It’s also a fun way to get the kids out, socialize and see what the community has to offer,” Wilson said. Elsewhere, Eddie Wadlington, USAG Kaiserslautern Directorate Emergency Services Physical Security Chief, greeted the steady stream of visitors to his table “I think this is a great event and another way we can make sure everyone in the community is safe. It’s important that everyone understands what physical security is all about, especially children,” Wadlington said. “Kids can see things that sometimes their parents don’t see. They can tell their momma and daddy, and their parents can make sure it’s reported.” Physical security involves taking measures designed to deny unauthorized access to facilities, equipment or resources (checking ID cards when entering military installations). These measures can also be used by individuals to protect their personnel property from damage or harm (locking car doors and writing down serial numbers for high-dollar value items). The event also featured free food, a military police dog demonstration, a bouncy castle and information booths. Visitors also took turns trying on a bomb suit courtesy of the Air Force’s 786th EOD Flight and exploring the inside of a military HUMVEE. Kids also had an opportunity to take personal photos with Sparky the Fire Dog and Daren the Lion. AZERI, from Page 1

lack some things, so we came here hoping to learn the basics of building a good fire station and how everything should work,” said Azizov. “This course was very beneficial, and we would definitely like to participate in this course in the future.” Not only did the course provide the Azeri air force leaders with handson insight into U.S. Air Force capabilities, it also enhanced the partnership between the two militaries. “During the course, we provided an overview of our operations and search and rescue and firefighting techniques,” said Tech. Sgt. James Hickman, contingency fire rescue training NCOIC. “But the biggest impact is going to be at the Azeri’s fire department

level. It’s such an honor for them to come here, and we were able to do this for them.” In addition to the tour of Fire Station one, the guests also visited the Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment in Landstuhl, Germany, to receive training on contingency aeromedical evacuation procedures. More was taken away at the conclusion of the course than just certificates: knowledge, hands-on experience and a stronger relationship between the forces. “It was a nice experience to work with them,” said Master Sgt. Max Wheeler, Emergency Management Services section chief. “As firefighters we like to help each other out. Like a brotherhood, we support each other, we compare and most important, we learn from each other.”

Story and photos by Capt. Kimberly Farmer 221st Public Affairs Detachment Soldiers from the 7th Civil Support Command received their air operations validation following two weeks of predeployment training July 30. Members of the 1177th MCT worked alongside Airmen from the 721st Aerial Port Squadron training in passenger terminal operations, load planning, cargo operations, special handling and ramp operations. The training is in preparation for the unit’s upcoming deployment to Afghanistan, where they will perform retrograde operations. “The purpose of the training was to receive first-hand guidance from the Airmen who do this on a daily basis,” said Capt. George Rodriguez, commander of the 1177th MCT and a native of North Bergen, N.J. “It is critical for the Soldiers to understand how each section operates because it gives us the confidence to do the job when there will not be Air Force personnel around.” Load planning is where successful air operations start. The 1177th MCT will deploy certified load planners who trained on the Global Air Transportation Execution System to determine how to load cargo on an aircraft in order to maximize space. Soldiers also trained on processing passengers, correctly loading and unloading aircraft, and received instruction on how to secure, net, brace and inspect cargo. Cargo can potentially be rejected if it is not correctly palletized to avoid risk to the safety of the aircraft and flight personnel. “We understand the importance of their mission involving retrograde operations in Afghanistan and the criticality of ensur-

ing cargo is shipped correctly for safety of flight,” said Lt. Col. Melvin Maxwell, commander, 721st APS. The Soldiers of the 1177th MCT benefited greatly from the training received from their Air Force brethren. The 721st APS welcomed the opportunity to train and work alongside the 1177th MCT. “We received excellent training from the Air Force personnel,” said Staff Sgt. Thomas Christensen, a Salt Lake City native and transportation management coordinator with the 1177th MCT. “We are all in to support them and provide any training necessary so they can successfully accomplish their mission,” said Maxwell. The 1177th MCT will perform additional pre-deployment training activities in the coming months as they continue to prepare for their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

Ramstein offers virtual reality therapy for those who suffer from PTSD by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Post-traumatic stress disorder is an issue the 86th Medical Group has been treating with traditional and virtual reality methods for more than three years. Social workers at the mental health clinic have customized virtual reality simulators used to treat PTSD in unison with traditional therapy. Patients utilizing the simulator can relive situations that closely mimic conditions within a vehicle convoy or foot patrol. “We are trying to emulate a scenario for someone who has convoyed in Iraq or Afghanistan before,” said Capt. David Weller, 86th MDG social worker. “The idea is to recreate an event that might be an underlying source of some of their problems and then be able to have them start to talk about it. Creating a pathway that will allow them to begin to get a handle on anxiety levels and one day eventually be able to control it.” Virtual reality scenarios are only used to supplement the already in place therapy for those diagnosed with PTSD. Working in tandem with social workers, a virtual reality session and a

therapy session generally last one hour to 1.5 hours. “It affects everyone differently,” said Staff Sgt. Louie Peralta, 86th Security Forces Squadron operations controller. “I came in really not knowing what to expect. For me, the virtual reality simulator brought back memories I was repressing, and I was then able to begin talking about.” Photo by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan Being able to proStaff Sgt.

Hearing loss: is my career over? by Maj. Jillyen Curry-Mathis Army Hearing Program Manager-Europe Hearing loss is among the top four injuries sustained by Soldiers in combat and one of the costliest VA-compensated disabilities to date. The Soldier’s mission, training and work environments frequently put

hearing at risk. Although preventable, permanent hearing loss is a reality for many men and women in uniform. Is a Soldier’s career over once the injury occurs? Many think so and avoid hearing tests. This may actually hurt a Soldier’s career, because it delays taking steps to reduce the risk of loss progression and remain combat

Maj. Jillyen Curry-Mathis, Army Hearing Program Manager - Europe, makes a custom hearing protection device for an Army aviator while deployed. The custom-made ear molds integrate with the pilot’s communication earplug. The new fit solved the problem of the foam encasing breaking down on long flights, leading to sore ears and unprotected hearing.

effective. The key to dealing with hearing loss is catching it early. Hearing loss is an injury that is painless and bloodless. In most cases, Soldiers do not even realize the injury has occurred. The basic premise behind annual hearing tests is early identification of changes in hearing sensitivity. If hearing loss can be caught early, intervention strategies can be started before it impacts performance. These strategies may vary from simple education to the fitting of tactical protective and communication systems or sophisticated hearing aids. The goal of the hearing program provider, known as an audiologist, is to provide the tools and knowledge that will enable the Soldier to perform effectively while preventing the loss from getting worse. An audiologist will also issue profiles for Soldiers with significant hearing loss. Profiles simply inform commanders of Soldier status. Commanders constantly work to mitigate risk when preparing for missions, and Soldier injuries must be included as part of the risk assessment. Contrary to popular belief, however, profiles actually make Soldiers deployable, outlining what the hearing loss means and what actions must be taken in preparation for going downrange.

In general, H2 profiles have little to no impact on a Soldier’s career. The problem arises when the hearing loss progresses to an H3 rating. All permanent 3 profiles require a board to determine if the Soldier can be retained, must be re-classed or requires separation from service. The provider’s recommendation to the board is based on the results of a speech test that is weighted by number of years in service. The weighting means that most senior service members are retained or re-classed to a less noisy MOS, while more junior members are reclassed or separated from service. It is never too late to deal with hearing loss. If you are due for your annual hearing evaluation or suspect you may have a hearing injury, get a test. If a hearing technician says you need to return for follow-up, do it. With continued noise exposure, hearing loss will progress; it will not remain unchanged. As one first sergeant recently said, “I need to get ahead of this loss” and he was absolutely correct. Do the follow-ups, get medically fit with hearing protection, use earplugs consistently in noise, and see an audiology provider for support when referred. The Army has a vested interest in keeping experienced Soldiers combat effective, but they need to be able to deploy safely.

Website teaches coping skills to military community by Claudette Roulo American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON (AFNS) — As part of the Integrated Mental Health Strategy, the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology and the Veterans Affairs Department’s mental health informatics section have partnered to develop an interactive online educational and lifecoaching program. Moving Forward, at http://www.startmovingforward.org, is designed to teach problem-solving skills to members of the military community, Dr. Robert Ciulla, director of the mobile health program at the National Center for Telehealth and Technology, told American Forces Press Service today. Moving Forward is focused on addressing stress — specifically, recognizing when a person is stressed, identifying stressors and developing stress management skills. To accomplish this, users navigate through a set of problem-solving exercises, Ciulla said. In addition to testimonials from former service members, the site offers quizzes to evaluate stress levels and

games to practice counseling progressions. “This gives users a way to interact with the course — to learn how stress affects them, in particular — and to learn about their general problemsolving style,” he said. Users then learn techniques for generating solutions when they’re faced with a problem, Ciulla added. “Problem-solving is foundational,” he said. The skills learned in addressing any one problem can be transferred to addressing a variety of problems. The techniques on the site are based on a problem-solving therapy program that has been used successfully with service members and veterans across the country, a growing number of whom have mental health care needs, Ciulla said. “We know that approximately 20 percent of service members returning from a combat deployment do experience adjustment problems like posttraumatic stress, depression, anger, problems in work settings (and) family and relationship issues,” Ciulla said, “and so this series of problem-solving exercises teaches the user how to literally learn how to work with some of the problems that they’re confronting.”

The Moving Forward website is designed to allow users to remain anonymous, but also to be able to pick up where they left off if they take a break from training. “We know that stigma is a prevalent issue in the military. (Service members) are concerned that if they see somebody on a face-to-face basis, it’ll be seen as a sign of weakness or that they can’t perform their duty, Ciulla said. Some advantages of using the website include never having to wait in a crowded waiting room and the ability to log on from home or another safe environment, he noted. The site is designed to stand alone — no referral from a caregiver is needed, Ciulla said, but it is not intended to entirely replace face-to-face care if that type of care is needed. For users who have chronic stress and chronic problems in their lives, the site can serve as a steppingstone to getting face-to-face care, he added. Moving Forward is designed to be especially helpful for veterans, service members and their families, Ciulla said, but the site teaches skills that can be useful to anyone dealing with stress.

Commissaries return to normal hours next week by Defense Commissary Agency Public Affairs FORT LEE, Va. — Military commissaries worldwide will return to normal operating schedules the week of Aug. 18 to 24, said the director and CEO of the Defense Commissary Agency. The DeCA announcement comes in the wake of the Department of Defense’s Aug. 6 decision to curtail

furloughs of its civilian workforce from 11 to six days. “This is welcome news for us all,” said Joseph H. Jeu. “Our stores will return to their regular schedules after Aug. 17. I encourage our patrons to check the DeCA website for their commissary’s operating hours. “We recognize the disruption that furloughs presented to our patrons as far as access to their commissary benefit,” he added. “We also understand the econom-

ic hardships many of our employees faced with the pay they lost during the furlough period.” Since July 8, the oneday-per-week furloughs impacted all of DeCA’s more than 14,000 U.S. civilian employees worldwide. With the end of furloughs, Jeu asked that patrons be patient as product delivery schedules return to normal. “We will do everything possible to ensure that our shelves are properly stocked with the products our custom-

ers want when they shop,” he said. “However, there will be a short adjustment period as our stores settle back into their pre-furlough operating and delivery routines.” Commissary customers can quickly find out about any changes to their local store’s operating schedule by going to www.commissaries.com, clicking on the “Locations” tab, then “Alphabetical Listing” to locate their store, and clicking on “Local Store Information.”

Motorists cannot cross solid line German Polizei is asking motorists to obey traffic signs on federal street B270, traveling from Hohenecken to Vogelweh. It was noticed that in the construction area, motorists stop to make a left turn to access Vogelweh, although there is a solid line and a traffic sign telling them not to turn here. Dangerous situations are being caused by drivers stopping and waiting for opposing traffic to pass, so they can make that left turn. Also, the following traffic is backing up to Hohenecken. Within two days, Polizei had to fine 26 drivers. Fines are €30 to €40. About 70 drivers stopped their intention to turn after seeing Polizei.

Taking care of four-legged warriors saves Soldiers lives too Story and photos by Sgt. 1st Class Randall Jackson 30th Medical Command Veterinary care for military working dogs is essential to keeping four-legged warriors “mission ready” both in garrison and downrange. That’s why the Baumholder, Germany-based 64th Medical Detachment (Veterinary Services) took time recently to brush up on their skills prior to their deployment to Afghanistan. On July 24, Dog Center Europe personnel tested the detachment’s skills and assessed their readiness during training at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s Pulaski Barracks. Their goal was to hone their abilities in garrison to prepare for the challenges of a deployed environment, said Maj. Kent Vince, an Army veterinarian who is the center’s director. “It’s imperative that these teams get training in clinical medicine before going downrange,” Vince said. “You never know what they might face when they’re down there.” Since ancient times, military working dogs were used as front line attackers, guard dogs, scouts and messengers. More recently, they’ve been used to detect explosives. They’ve even been attributed as saving thousands of lives during conflicts in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The Army values its canine corps and specifically trains a dedicated cadre of veterinarians and technicians to

take care of the health of these often courageous animals. Members of the 64th said they take every chance they get to work on bettering themselves, said Army Capt. Lindsey Day, a veterinary corps officer. “This was another opportunity to practice our skills and a chance to work together.” Day said. Three teams of veterinarians and technicians performed surgeries while being observed and evaluated. Spc. Nicole Lamanna, an Army animal care specialist, said she loves the atmosphere. “Every chance I get to work in a clinic is amazing,” Lamanna said. “It just shows I can use what I’ve learned under stress.” Veterinarians also offer first aid training for dog handlers — information that once helped Air Force Staff Sgt. Jonathan Forgham from the 86th Security Forces Squadron, whose canine partner severely injured his head when jumping through a window. “We had to rush him across the base to get him to the veterinarian. The whole time I was in the cage with him stopping the bleeding,” Forgham said. “We got to use the training they gave us, and it helped.” The care veterinary teams offer to working dogs in turn pays off for humans. “Not only are dogs lives dependent on you, but also humans’ lives,” Lamanna said. “The dogs save lives. So, by saving the dog, we’re saving other Soldiers.”

German Polizei Corner German Polizei are looking for the owner of a dog who abandoned his pet July 25 in the forest near Herschweiler-Pettersheim. The dog not only was tied to a tree, but also had a bruise on its head. The female grey-brown Cairn Terrier had no collar and is not chipped. A walker found the dog around 8:30 p.m. July 25, right on time since the heat could have caused a great danger. Meanwhile the Animal Protection Association took care of her injury and found her a new home. Anybody who knows anything about the dog should contact the Kusel Polizei at 06381-9190, the police station in SchönenbergKübelberg at 06373-8220, or the German police liaison office on Ramstein at 480-1987.

Air Force, Army team up for outreach efforts Story and photo by Dijon Rolle U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Public Affairs It’s lunchtime at the Clock Tower Café Army dining facility on Kleber Kaserne. Long lines of hungry Soldiers, small children and civilians, crowd every available inch. The sound of clinging silverware and laughter blend well with the familiar smells of barbecue ribs, candied yams, pecan pie and other palette pleasers. In the middle of this lunch time whirlwind sit Patricia Boswell, Army Reserve Family Programs; Carmen Schott, Ramstein Family Advocacy Program; Patricia Tooson, Army Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program; and Sandi Magill, USAGK Employee Assistance Program coordinator. Today, the four ladies have set up shop as part of the garrison’s “Brown Bag Lunch Sessions.” The program provides outreach information to service members, families and government civilians on issues like finances, relationships, deployments, drug and alcohol abuse, family advocacy, military one source and more. Each week, the group travels to dif-

ferent dining facilities across the KMC to greet visitors and share their collective knowledge. “For me meeting the community members, interacting with them and showing them what we have to offer is one of the best parts of doing this,” Boswell said. The Army program began earlier this year as a way to assist community members struggling with concerns stemming from sequestration and employee furloughs. Since that time, it’s undergone a few changes. The biggest and most recent one involved partnering with the Air Force. “We love working together. We have a similar mission and similar goal and by doing this, we can maximize our efforts and avoid duplication,” Schott said. The two services began officially hosting the sessions jointly about a month ago. “One of the most important things is that we come together to provide these types of resources, teach classes together in the community and continue to build that Army and Air Force partnership. This is a way that we can really reach everybody and also get our class attendance numbers up. We make a great team.” They also encourage other agen-

cies to participate in the sessions. “The more the merrier. Our services are open to everyone from all branches of the military and to those who would like to promote their outreach programs” Tooson said. Organizers say that they plan to continue the sessions at least through the end of the year. “The response was really good, and what we were finding was that people didn’t know what they didn’t know. They didn’t know that the resources were there. So by bringing it

out and making it in front of them like this in a casual way, it helps them to be able to come and pick up whatever they might need,” Magill said. The next “Brown Bag Lunch Sessions” are scheduled for Aug. 22 at the Sembach Community Activities Center, Aug. 29 at the Rhine Ordnance Barracks DFAC and Sept. 5 at Kleber DEFAC. For a full schedule or for more information on the program call 479-2370 or 486-6254.

Riders, bikers and skaters have fun on car-free German Wine Street and in the communities along it 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Hikers, bikers, skaters enjoy car-free German Wine Street Aug. 25 by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

School Notes

The 28th car-free adventure day will take place Aug. 25 along the German Wine Street. From Bockenheim in the north to Schweigen in the south, Germany’s oldest wine tourist route will be closed to motorized traffic from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bicyclists, skaters and hikers will have the 85-kilometer car-free route all to themselves. This year’s motto is “Royal Pfalz.” Besides highlighting the wine growing areas, organizers will put Palatinate royals in the center of attention. There will be the wine queen, wine princesses, the almond blossom queen, tobacco queen, shoe queen, onion queen, and other crowned celebrities such as Miss Strawhat from Frankenthal, or Kuseline, the official representative for the community of Kusel. The event will officially open at 10 a.m. in Grünstadt.

About 30 villages and towns along the German Wine Street will take part in the carfree wine street day, and offer entertaining programs with many attractions to include music, sports and games. Event participants can stop at several wine gourmet stations, where they will get fine little dishes with the right wines for €5. The Pfalz Sports Association will sponsor its traditional 10-kilometer run, which will start in two places again. The route in the north will go from Bockenheim to Kirchheim, and the one in the south from Bad Bergzabern to Wissembourg. Starting time will be 10 a.m. Organizers ask all bicyclists, walkers and skaters for mutual respect. They expect just like in recent years several hundred thousands of visitors and recommend coming to the German Wine Street in public transportation vehicles such as the train or busses. For details, visit www.pfalz.de.

SOLDIER RIDE by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A wounded warrior ride comprised of riders from seven different countries raced around Bostalsee, Germany, Aug. 10 to raise awareness and lift spirits. Wounded warrior riders completed a 14-mile ride around the Bostalsee lake, completing a third day of biking around the German countryside. Riders were welcomed to a finish lane lined with welcome signs and a cheering crowd. “It all started in Long Island when Chris Carney decided to do a cross-country ride to raise money and awareness for wounded warriors,” said Bruce Nitsche, executive vice president Wounded Warrior Project. “The program is here to not only restore physical wellness but mental and emotional strength as well.” The wounded warriors spent three days strengthening their bodies and minds around the German countryside. “Soldier Ride is not just about the cycling,” said participant Andrew Kinard. “It’s about getting to know each other and sharing time together to develop camaraderie as injured and wounded service members.” Kinard has been living with his injury for seven years and has reached a point where he would like to aid in the recovery of others in the community. “The ride means different things to warriors depending on their stage of recovery,” said Kinard. “For me, I’ve been injured for almost seven years, and this is a chance to fulfill a mentor role for a lot of the warriors who haven’t been injured as long or are beginning in their recovery.” Recovery is a keystone principal at these events, Nitsche said. “I remember this very clearly, my first soldier ride, my first time on a hand cycle, being nervous and not knowing how the gears worked,” said Kindard. “It wasn’t until some of the guys older in their injuries showed me the ropes. For many of the newly injured participants it really is about finding out you can do this and it is surprisingly fun.” To get in contact with the Wounded Warrior Project to participate, volunteer or become an alumni visit their website at woundedwarriorproject.org.

Shock N’ Rock was a real tough mudder Story and photos by Ignacio “Iggy” Rubalcava U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder Public Affairs There was enough mud for all of the more than 400 participants at this year’s Shock N’ Rock Reloaded motivational mud run Aug. 8 on Baumholder’s Military Training Area. This is the second year that the German military and the U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder have held this event and, if last year’s participation compared to this year’s has any influence in its future, this event is only going to get better. “Last year we had 15 teams, five people per team. This year we had to cut off registration at 90 teams. So there was a huge increase.” said Lt. Col. Mike Sullivan, USAG Baumholder commander. German 1st Lt. Roman Imschweiler, event coordinator for the German military, pointed out that participants included Soldiers from around Baumholder, Ramstein Airmen, German soldiers from Saarlouis, and one team from Belgium. “I never really expected that number of participants. It’s overwhelming. I’m happy to be here, and I would like to say thanks to the USAG Baumholder for their great support. It is absolutely outstanding, and I’m looking forward to next year,” said Imschweiler. The idea was born last year when Imschweiler and another lieutenant from Lager Aulenbach decided to have a barbecue with their friends from U.S. Range Control. Lager Aulenbach controls the Military Training Area. The event morphed from a German/American party with music and sports to an all-out event with participants from

throughout Germany being invited for a day of camaraderie and fun and eventually to what it was this year, a flat out mud run for anyone who wanted to get a little wet and dirty. “Obviously there is a great interest in these type of events. It’s a great way to show people what we have to offer here in the Baumholder military community. One of the things we’re going to look at next year is, maybe we’ll make this a two-day event so we can have more folks participate,” said Sullivan. A DJ entertained the crowd after the awards ceremony, and the day’s activities continued with a barbecue and music by the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa band “Touch and Go.”

Visit www.kaiserslauternamerican.com/movies.php for details We’re the Millers — David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).

Elysium — In the year 2154 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
