How I learned to stop worrying and love the beat


Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Jordan Castelan 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Europe has been known to suffer horribly depressing winters, and it comes as no surprise that many inhabitants look forward to the glorious relief of summer. Why is summer so fantastic in Europe? What makes it so magical? After nearly completing my tour here I believe I have found the answer: summer festival season. When the weather begins to wrap your face with a warming embrace, the sky adopts the color of a brilliant sapphire for more than 15 hours a day and the flowers begin to break through their winter constraints, it becomes apparent why everyone tries to enjoy the fleeting comforts of summer. What better way to celebrate the new weather than with 72,000 of your closest friends dancing till the sun sets and stopping only after the sun rises. As a dorm resident it can be quite easy to settle into life on base. Everything I need is already at my convenience within these gates. Why do I have to, or why should I try to leave the safety net already

Every year, festivals of various types and sizes stampede across the countryside and cityscapes, celebrating local curiosities, regional identities and national delicacies. And my favorite festivals are those music festivals where you can camp. With no short supply to pick

part of such a great organization full of true professionals. The reputation of this organization is fantastic, and Command Sergeant Major Richards and I look forward to working with you in support of our vast array of mission sets throughout Europe and Africa,” he said. Richards joins the 405th from Fort Polk, Louisiana, where he served as the command sergeant major for the Operations Group’s Sustainment Division, Joint Readiness Training Center. “Going forward we will continue to be asked to ‘maintain the line,’ and with the great people of the 405th, we will excel,” Richards said. “My pledge to you is that I will always do everything within my power to facilitate our mission and purpose. Those are only words, I know, and I will have to back them

They reflected on the partnership that helped shape what Roscoe referred to as the “benchmark-setting support.” This included the permanent change of station surge in 2013 coupled with the European Activity Set in 2014, which helped the brigade overcome adversity to reach the highest achievements. “What struck me most about the 405th over the past two years is the resiliency and toughness of the team,” Roscoe said. “No sequestration, furlough, overtime bans or hiring freezes could stop the organization from executing every mission brilliantly.” Kroontje said he has seen the mission change several times. “I have seen us take on missions that others

Kroontje, who passed the Noncommissioned Officer’s Sword during the ceremony, also plans to officially retire later this year after 33 years of active-duty service. “Your personal attention and enthusiastic approach vastly improved the quality of life for over 2,000 Soldiers, civilians, host nation employees and contractors,” Wharton said.

of shoes you have, and don’t become too attached to them. It’s very likely they’ll be caked in mud and dust by the end. Depending on how much you like your feet, this could be the No. 1 thing to bring. • A wingman. Tackling a new adventure is a bit more exciting with friends. • A tent. This is really a no brainer. A good rule of thumb is that a tent will generally only sleep half the amount of people it says it’s for comfortably. • A canopy. Your tent is going to become an oven in direct sunlight, and shade becomes a premium in the standard field setup for camping. Make sure you can create shade somehow. • Sleeping pads. The ground is hard; these are soft; and sleeping is good. Thank yourself by bringing one. • Water. Just like in basic training: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. It’ll keep you going. • Food. Festival food is expensive and generally average at best. Consider something that doesn’t need to be cooked, or grab a portable grill. • Toilet paper. Chances are you’re sharing a large field with tens of thousands of others and only a few dozen toilets. Paper runs out. • Chairs. Your feet will be tired after dancing for hours on end. Worst case scenario: you didn’t listen to me before about the sleeping pads and if you bring chairs, at least you will have somewhere else to sleep. • Positivity. Possibly the most important thing you can bring is positivity. Staying positive and open has saved me from many crises at various events. Those around you are likely to pick up on your vibes and be more open to support you in your time of need, from helping you set up camp, sharing food, and even aiding you in finding lost friends. I’ve had the opportunity to attend festivals in four different countries, and not once have I regreted doing so. I’ve made friends at each festival, from a Dutch couple who offered to let me stay at their place whenever I’m in Amsterdam, to a German couple who’ve let me join their road trips to other festivals. Stay adventurous, stay positive, stay smart and stay safe, but make sure to have a little fun while you stay in Europe.

CDC increases space for children by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Force Support Squadron Child Development Center on Ramstein opened an annex Monday close to their current CDC facilities to allow room for more children. Volunteers gathered at Bldg. 800 to pull weeds, pick up trash and move furniture to help with the nearly finished project. “The new annex is the last phase of an on-going, early-intervention project that started in 2008,” said Shaquita Ponder, 86th FSS Airman and Family Services deputy flight chief. “Over $2 million was given to the installation to increase child care (availability).” The new annex gives the CDC the ability to accommodate 32 more children. The CDC wait list has been as long as 200 children but is now at 12, Ponder said. Additionally, with the increase in child capacity, there will also be an increase in staff. “We are consistently seeking professionals in the area who are interested in

The have to be able to read, write and speak English, have a high

school diploma or equivalent, and be at least 18 years old.” Ponder said that with the increase in space, completion of the project and seeing the volunteers help support the community, the Ramstein CDC staff is excited to see the facility finally open.

A Ramstein-based C-130J Super Hercules takes off after performing a “touch-and-go” Aug. 11 at Powidz Air Base, Poland. Ramstein Airmen deployed to Poland as part of a bilateral training mission in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, which was designed to promote regional stability and security.

Cloudburst: C-130s train through adverse weather Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Jarad A. Denton U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs POWIDZ AIR BASE, Poland — The sky wept — a flood from the heavens that seemed poised to wash the world away. The water, cold and unforgiving, soaked everything through to its core. The heavy patter of rainfall, which marked time as a rhythmic interlude, was suddenly interrupted by the discordant symphony of four synchronized propellers cutting through the ominous gray clouds. Aptly referred to as “Super Hercules,” the colossal C-130J powered through the skies above Powidz Air Base, Poland, Aug. 11 like a winged demigod. From the nearby operations building, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Patrick Driscoll, 37th Airlift Squadron detachment commander at Powidz, watched the aircraft with vested interest. “He’s coming in for a ‘touch-and-go,’” Driscoll said, referring to a maneuver that calls for a pilot to land an aircraft and immediately take off without coming to a full stop. “It’s really incredible to watch the vapor trails from the propellers during a rainstorm.” Almost on cue, the C-130’s wheel contacted the

ground, kicking up a cascading wall of water in its wake. However, instead of slowing the turboprop engines, the pilot increased the throttle and coaxed the nearly 113-foot metal hulk down the runway at an unbelievable speed. For a few seconds, the thrust from the tips of the propeller blades create corkscrews of water vapor through the humid air, which become visible to the naked eye — appearing as dancing wisps of light. “The vapor trails are one of those rare things you get to see up close during this deployment,” Driscoll said. “Everything has to come together perfectly for it to happen.” Similar to the vortices created by the C-130, Ramstein Airmen have been afforded the perfect opportunity to come together with NATO partners during a flying training deployment throughout the region. Based at Powidz, and under the banner of Operation Atlantic Resolve, this ongoing mission demonstrates the United States’ commitment to the collective security and support of European partners. “This truly is a tremendous opportunity for our aircrews to hone their expeditionary skills from a forward operating location,” Driscoll said. “Our presence here allows the United States and NATO

to build deeper partnerships across the continent.” The broad military training areas of Poland and the neighboring Baltic States offer U.S. service members an opportunity to work with host nations and exponentially enhance cooperative capabilities. “The flying training deployment consists of lowlevel flight training, landings at unimproved landing zones, airdrop training and partnership building events with our regional allies,” he said. “The current, enduring presence at Powidz makes it possible for the U.S. Air Force to support these multinational exercises from a regional hub.” As an added benefit, the operations at Poland serve to enhance the U.S.’s continuous air presence in the region, assuring NATO allies of the commitment to collective defense. The operations and missions go beyond skill improvement and partner building; they speak to the core of what bonds the U.S. to its European allies. “This is much more than a training deployment,” Driscoll said. “This is a chance to bolster our collective capabilities and better understand the strength that comes from working together. It is only through these strengthened relationships with our allies that we are able to fully demonstrate our shared belief in a peaceful, stable and secure Europe.”

NATO opens kitchen to all Story and photo by Senior Airman Armando A. Schwier-Morales 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A Greek, an American, a German and their dependents walked up to the bar — a salad bar. The NATO compound International Dining Facility recently opened its doors to all personnel with access to Ramstein Aug. 6, offering vegetables, drinks and other food. Until the recent change, an escort was required along with several days of processing time to dine at the NATO Headquarters Allied Air Command in Bldg. 313. The change came after a desire to not only offer a new dining facility but also a multinational experience. “We eased the process of getting into the dining facility with the intent of increasing interaction and giving others a chance to experience the quality food they have here,” said Air Force Col. Mark Hering, NATO Headquarters Allied Air Command base support group commander. The facility offers three different main options, from €4 to €6, as well as salads, drinks and a variety of other options. The kitchen is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. A coffee bar is also offered from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The international dining facility only takes euros, and to enter the facility, Ramstein members are required to stop by the visitor center in Bldg. 312 to obtain a pass. Once beyond the main gates and after a short walk into the building, the flags of NATO will come into view overlooking the facility. Twenty-eight nations make up NATO, with 26 represented in the facility. With this in mind, the kitchen is slated to have one day a month dedicated to many of the NATO nations’ food and people. “What I am most excited about is increas-

ing the interaction between NATO headquarters and the entire base through this dining facility,” Hering said. “To be able to have a dining experience with other countries and meet their people is going to be a unique opportunity that I am proud of.” Hering is not the only one satisfied. One French adjutant-chef (E-9 equivalent), who helped make an all-access dining facility a reality, is pleased at what it is becoming. “I must admit, when I first entered the international dining facility I was impressed and proud, because you realize what you are part of,” said French air force Adjutant-Chef Yann Schweyer,

Then you really realize that this is a multinational environment. I am part of this, and I am in the middle of it.” Once closed to all but a few willing to cook up the right paper work and find a sponsor, the kitchen has opened its doors to all with access to Ramstein and is scheduled to publish a weekly menu in the Kaiserslautern American newspaper and on the Ramstein Facebook page.

Pilot launches IG perspective Story and photo by Airman Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs When asking a child what they wish to be when they grow up, a variety of responses may arise: a doctor, firefighter, ice skater or veterinarian, for example. For one 76th Airlift Squadron pilot, his interest in flying started at a young age. Maj. William Dabney, 86th Airlift Wing Inspector General chief of wing readiness and 76th AS C-37A Gulfstream V and C-20H Gulfstream IV pilot, was strongly influenced in his decision to become a pilot. Dabney’s father was a helicopter pilot in the Army, and his grandfather was a Republic P-47 Thunderbolt pilot in the Army Air Corps just after World

War II. These affiliations sparked his desire to attend the Air Force Academy, he said. “It wasn’t until I started seriously considering going to the Air Force Academy that I started to look at flying for the military,” Dabney said. “My decision to go to the academy was strongly influenced by my desire to be a pilot.” In 2005, Dabney graduated from pilot training in Del Rio at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. Shortly after, he was stationed at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, then McChord Air Force Base, Washington, before arriving at Ramstein. “At the 76th Airlift Squadron, I am an aircraft commander for the C-37A Gulfstream V and C-20H Gulfstream IV,” he said. “We perform distin-

Capt. Spanky’s Restaurant Review

Servings: 6

Hello, Ramstein! This week, I thought I’d try something different. This is the first-ever Capt. Spanky restaurant review. Now I know my primary diet consists of kibble, but I can assure you, I have a very sophisticated palate, except when it comes to cheese — all cheese is good as far as I am concerned. Anyway, this week I ate at the NATO Dining Facility, which, if you haven’t heard, is now open to anyone with a valid ID card. You can read more about that on Page 7 though. I will start off by saying I’ve only eaten there once, and because their menu is always changing and they have different selections on each day, this review is based on what I was able to see while I was there. When I first came through the door, I was instantly scratched under the chin by the amazing aroma of all the various foods. After getting past the delicious smell, I got a chance to look around and see the facility itself. This place is huge and had many options to select from. Every day the facility

Ingredients: 200 grams cooked ham, chopped or diced 300 grams small mushrooms, sliced 250 grams cherry tomatoes, cut in half 1 onion, peeled and chopped 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped 3 tablespoons oil Salt and pepper, to taste 2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 level tablespoon flour 400 grams Schlagsahne (heavy whipping cream) 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning 2 packages gnocchi (about 400 grams each), fresh-refrigerated Grease for the pan 125 grams mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced 75 grams Gouda cheese, grated

offers a soup of the day, three main course options in varying price ranges, a variety of salad and salad bar choices and a whole list of tasty desserts. On the day I was dining, I decided to skip the soup and go straight to the main course. I had a hard time choosing between noodle gratin with a side salad, chicken strips with spätzle and vegetables, and calamari with garlic dip and french fries, but I eventually went with the chicken strips. Now I haven’t had a chance to try anything else, but if the rest of their food is anything like the meal I had, you’re in for a treat. And, based on the prices, you won’t even need to roll over to get it! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try the dessert, because chocolate and me don’t mix well, but everything else was great. The portions were good, the food was delicious and the mix of people in there made it the perfect dining experience for this young(ish) pup. If you haven’t been yet, I’d highly suggest sniffing this place out. You won’t regret it.

Instructions: • Heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius/390 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease or spray a large casserole dish. • Wash and slice the mushrooms. Wash the cherry tomatoes and cut into halves. Peel and chop the onion and garlic cloves into fine pieces. • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a

large skillet. Add the tomatoes and quickly swirl around in the hot oil. • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove tomatoes from the pan. • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the same skillet. • Add the chopped onion and garlic and cook until just soft and transparent. Add in the mushrooms and continue cooking. • Next add the chopped ham. When heated through, stir in the tomato paste and the flour. • Mix together the Schlagsahne (heavy whipping cream), the ketchup and the dried Italian seasonings. Add to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes. • Return the tomato halves to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. • Pour gnocchi into a pan of salted boiling water. Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 2 minutes or until gnocchi rise to the top of the water. • Drain gnocchi and pour into the prepared casserole pan. Spread the tomato mixture over the entire pan of gnocchi. Place the slices of mozzarella cheese over the top of the sauce. Sprinkle the gouda cheese on top of the mozzarella. • Place in oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes.

Celebrating National Women’s Equality Day by Master Sgt. Rachel Arter & Senior Master Sgt. Yvonne Davis 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron & 2nd Air Postal Squadron Although my father would try and explain this to me, it was difficult to comprehend that there was a time when women in the United States did not have the same rights as men. Growing up I always saw myself as an equal. After all, I was paid the same as my male counterparts and was able to vote shortly after my 18th birthday. But how did I earn these rights? History has revealed that women have overcome many challenges and reached many milestones in order to achieve equality so their mothers, daughters and sisters could have a voice on the political future of the country. On Aug. 12, 1920, U.S. Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby signed the 19th Amendment into law, allowing women to vote for the very first time, and on June 10, 1963, President Kennedy signed into

law the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to abolish the gender-based wage gaps. During this time, women earned an average of 59 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts. One could say that was 51 years ago, and certainly things have changed since then, right? Well, partially. Today, as an Airman serving my country in the U.S. Air Force, I enjoy the benefits of the same pay and incentive bonuses as the male Airmen I work alongside. However, there continues to be a 23 cent gap between what men and women make in the civilian workforce. More recently, in 2007, pay equality was back in the spotlight when Lilly Ledbetter sued Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, and it went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ledbetter was a supervisor at a Goodyear plant in Gadsden, Alabama, from 1979 until her retirement in 1998. There, she was an area manager, which was a position usually held by men. At the time of her retirement she earned between $560 and $1,510 less a month than her male col-

leagues. Needless to say, she lost her lawsuit against Goodyear, because she failed to report discrimination within 180 days of her first paycheck. In hopes that other women would not have to face the same inequalities she did, she lobbied for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which was signed into law by President Barack Obama in January 2009, creating flexibility to file gender pay discrimination complaints. However, there is still work to be done. In 1971, Congress officially designated Aug. 26 as National Women’s Equality Day, and it is imperative that on this day we unite and commemorate the ratification of the 19th Amendment and reflect on the continued efforts of women to achieve full equality. In the words of President Obama, “As we reflect on decades of progress toward gender equality, we must also resolve to make progress in our time. Today, we honor the pioneers of women’s equality by doing our part to realize the great American dream — the dream of a nation where all things are possible for all people.”

Airman leaves diamond-hard legacy Story and photo by Airman Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs It takes a certain kind of person to become an effective first sergeant. Working all hours of the day and always having to carry a phone and answer it, first sergeants put the mission before themselves and exude the Air Force second core value: service before self. Senior Master Sgt. Keith Custer, 86th Maintenance Squadron first sergeant, took a moment to reflect on his 26-year Air Force career, 10 of which were as a first sergeant. “The unique thing about being a first sergeant is having the opportunity to help hundreds of people, but it is not the same as being a supervisor,” he said. “Having my own team, working together and having that feeling of closeness is something I miss, though I really love what I do.” Though Custer may miss the camaraderie of being a front line supervisor, he noted that as a first sergeant he is able to forego the daily routine of his previous job and put all of his efforts into helping Airmen. “If someone were to look around my office, they wouldn’t see a clock anywhere,” Custer said. “In fact, there aren’t clocks in any of my offices. That’s because it isn’t about my time; it’s about the Airman’s time. The Airman in here

doesn’t need to know how much time they’re taking. They take the time that’s needed. I have lots of that.” Like many first sergeants, Custer spends the majority of his time helping Airmen with any issues they may have. These issues can range from financial troubles to personal problems. Sometimes he can even be the bearer of bad news. “I remember one particular time I was notified of the death of an Airman’s grandmother,” Custer said. “I went to his dorm and knocked on the door.” See first sergeant, Page 18

August 22, 2014 pilot, from Page 7 reliable transport. We take our job seriously and are very professional with what we do. We are the executive airlift for Europe as far as Air Force goes. “I came into the Air Force to fly,” Dabney continued. “Particularly in this unit, we get to fly in Africa a lot, and it can be very challenging. I think that challenge is why I like that part of my job. It tests the things I know and learn.” Dabney has not only been able to experience flying. Last July, he was given the opportunity to work for the inspector general. This allowed him to communicate and work side-by-side with other Airmen of different professions. The experience he gained from the IG office will help him in the future when he returns to the 76th AS. “I was recommended by my squadron commander for the IG job,” Dabney said. “We really like to have career broadening rather than just being a guy who flies all the time. It was a job outside the squadron and something I had never done. I had no readiness experience at all, and I went from that to being the chief of readiness. “As the chief of readiness, we’re involved with all aspects of the readiness program for the wing and installations — things like emergency management, police, firefighter and accident response,” he continued. “We validate and test the wing’s ability to respond to those kinds of events as well as the wing’s readiness to deploy.” As part of the IG, Dabney is able to observe how different units work together to complete the mission. By understanding how they function, he is able to tailor his test scenarios to their routines. By running these scenarios, he can inform the commander about their readiness and prepare responders for real-life occurrences. “We have the freedom to take a requirement

given to us, such as test emergency responders, and create a scenario and then test it,” Dabney said. “We have to know how the fire department responds, for example, so we can make it realistic. This is a different side of the mission I didn’t get to experience on the other side of the flightline.” With just over a year of experience working for the IG, Dabney returns to the squadron to get back to his passion: flying. With a new understanding of how the mission works as a whole, he can see how his career fits into the equation. “My big take away from the IG has to do with the new inspection system,” he said. “With the new inspection system, there is an emphasis to expose and document your flaws and shortcomings rather than hiding them by putting window dressing on them when being inspected. Exposing your weaknesses and shortcomings helps the unit grow and gives commanders an honest look at how capable and compliant a unit is and the areas that need to be addressed and solidified. I think this philosophy is what I’ll take back to the 76th and emphasize both at the organizational level and the individual. “For the Airmen at the 76th and for me as a pilot, I think the philosophy carries over that you can only know how strong you are by (knowing) what your weaknesses are,” he continued. “Furthermore, you can only get stronger by knowing your weaknesses, addressing them and holding yourself or your unit accountable.” The sky’s the limit when it comes to the future. Dabney could have become an immeasurable number of things, and he chose to follow his dream as a pilot in the footsteps of his predecessors. Though his service in the IG office may be coming to an end, the lessons he learned will follow him back to the 76th AS as well as in his future endeavors.

Henderson, 86th Force Support Squadron education services specialist. “Our doors are open to everyone, regardless of the color of their uniform or whether they’re a spouse, dependent, reservist or retiree.� Six percent of enlisted Airmen between the ages of 24 and 52 have a bachelor’s degree. This means 94 percent of enlisted Airmen aren’t taking advantage of the free educational benefits the Air Force offers. In today’s competitive workforce, it isn’t ideal to compete for a job with fewer credentials than your peers, Henderson said. The education office guides individuals through the variety of decisions involved in choosing a degree completion program, college institution and various funding resources available to them. In an average month, the office advises about 1,000 walk-ins, along with appointments throughout the day. Ramstein averages 4,000

students, 9,000 enrollments and $7.5 million in approved tuition assistance each year. One of the most frequently asked questions the education office answers is, “Where do I go to find what I need to complete my (Community College of the Air Force) degree?� To check the status of a CCAF, visit the Air Force Virtual Education Center online to get an understanding of what’s required. Then, visit the education office for further guidance and get any questions answered. To get to AFVEC, go to the Education/ Training/Force Development section of the Air Force portal. Learning what steps to take, during or after service, is important to prepare Airmen for the future, Jones said.

uring a four-day weekend in Europe, service members have many options on how to spend their leisure time. Some choose to travel, some choose to visit local historic sites and some choose to stay at home and relax. For some members of the KMC, a four-day weekend meant an afternoon of science. Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command and other local military units visited the Vogelweh Child Development Center Aug. 8 to assist their children with various

experiments during a science fair. Parents and children alike were brought together with scientific ventures that included dropping mints into soda bottles to create a pop-volcano, placing oil in water then adding dish soap to see it rush to the sides, and making raisins dance in a pool of lemon-lime carbonated beverage. Children also made vinegar baking soda volcanoes with clay, rainbow ice with food coloring and their very own pieces of art by dropping paint-soaked sponges onto a sheet of paper. Amateur scientists, both young and old, smiled with each experiment. “Spending time with our kids while they See science, Page 24

DODDS-Europe Kaiserslautern district schools reopen Monday

School bus safety begins, ends at home Only YOU can keep your children ready. Do these five things throughout the school year:

4. STRESS good behavior on the bus. Good behavior and safety go hand-in-hand.

Do not wait in a parked car or building, and don’t allow them to come to you.

1. LOOK at and KNOW your children’s route to and from the bus stop.

5. REPORT your safety concerns to the school bus office.

Important facts you need to know:

2. SHOW your children how to go safely to and from the bus stop. Use hands-on instruction.

Note: Children, particularly those in kindergarten through second grade, need supervision to keep them safe. Take them to and from the bus stop, and wait with them until they have safely boarded or disembarked the bus. When they return from school, meet them on the same side of the street as the bus stop.

3. REVIEW the below five basic bus safety rules with your children, and make sure to FOLLOW UP and REINFORCE the rules.

• In Europe, traffic does not stop for loading and unloading school buses. Teach your children this lifesaving rule: Never cross the street in front of or behind the bus. • Children are at the greatest risk for accidents and injuries going to and from the bus stop.

Five basic safety rules every child should know to prevent most accidents and injuries:

3. TAKE your seat on the bus and stay in it while the bus is moving. If there are seat belts, buckle up.

1. Be on time — WALK, do not run, to the bus stop.

4. When getting off the bus, take THREE LARGE STEPS AWAY from the curb and WAIT for the bus to depart before crossing the street.

2. When waiting for the bus, take at least THREE LARGE STEPS AWAY from the curb.

When Custer arrived at the dorm, he asked if the Airman had spoken to his family recently. When it became apparent he hadn’t, Custer broke the bad news. “His grandmother was the center of his universe, and his reaction taught me to never assume,” Custer said. “You just never know how someone will react.” Though the job may be hard at times, there are several possible advantages. First sergeants are assigned to units outside of their career field, which offers them the opportunity to meet new people and experience Air Force culture from a new perspective. “I may not go to a unit that shares my same badge, but I adopt them, and they adopt me,” Custer said. “I learn a lot from the different units, and it gives me a greater appreciation for what they do. After I move on to another unit, I’m still their shirt. Diamonds truly are forever. It’s cliche, but it’s true.” As a mentor, first sergeants can form working relationships with

Airmen. Through the First Sergeants Association, they hold meetings to enhance things such as morale, which in turn brings them together and boosts camaraderie. “We often ask the question, ‘Who’s the first sergeant for the first sergeant?’ Well, it’s the other first sergeants,” Custer said. “When new first sergeants come in and are enthusiastic about this job, that’s what being a first sergeant is about. It may be hard to get out of bed some days, but the encouragement we get from each other keeps us going. “At the end of the day, anyone can do the job,” he continued. “It’s just whether or not they want to. I’ve wanted to and continue to want to, and so do my brothers and sisters. The strength they give me is really what matters. A lot of other first sergeants ask me how I could do this for so long, and I tell them, ‘It’s because of all of them.’ That’s where I get my strength — from them and my family. From the first call I received on Christmas morning, my wife said, ‘If this is what you want to do, OK.’ All she had to do was say no, and I

never would have done it.” With the support from his units, peers and family, as well as his love for the job, Custer said he couldn’t imagine having any other career, though if someone had asked him as an airman basic, he wouldn’t have thought he’d be where he is today. “As I started making rank, people would talk to me about issues. It could be anything: off-duty, on-duty, personal,” Custer said. “It seemed it kept happening more and more. I don’t know why. So lots of times, I’d give people advice. Most times they’d take it, and it would turn out for their benefit. It started to make me feel really good.” Around the time he made master sergeant, a peer asked him if he had ever thought about being a first sergeant. “It planted the seed,” he said. “I was a stand-in for another first sergeant at first, and that’s when this path really began.” With his career coming to an end, and though he will make some adjustments, he said he doesn’t regret any of the choices he’s made.

“It’s a little bit hard to take in,” Custer said. “I always tell people, ‘I’ve never had to find a job on my own.’ I had a couple little jobs before I joined the Air Force, but I got those jobs through family. Then there’s the Air Force. This is all I know. Having to lose that security blanket is a little spooky, especially retiring as early as Jan. 1, 2015.” “When I look back, I ask myself, ‘Would I do anything differently?’ No, I wouldn’t,” Custer said. “I’ve done this, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being able to serve in this capacity and being able to help, because that’s what it really boils down to.” With two and a half decades of military experience, Custer said he has been given a lot of marketable traits that will help him in his civilian life. Though the transition from military to civilian may be bittersweet, he says he knows the First Sergeants Association is in good hands. Joining the ranks of an elite group of men and women and being afforded the opportunity to be part of an even more exclusive group has given him memories that will last a lifetime.

C-130 celebrates 6 Page 20

Kaiserslautern American


by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

As gunships, the AC-130 models have a primary mission of close air support, air interdiction and armed reconnaissance. The AC-130 gunship has a combat history dating to Vietnam.

The YC-130 prototype takes off on its maiden flight Aug. 23, 1954, at Lockheed Air Terminal in Los Angeles County, California. Later dubbed “Hercules,” the Lockheed aircraft’s design was the result of a request by the Air Force for a tough, versatile heavy-lift aircraft. The initial production model was the C-130A with four Allison T56-A-11 or -9 turboprop engines. They were first delivered to the Air Force in December 1956. The C-130B introduced Allison T56-A-7 turboprop engines and first entered Air Force service in May 1959.

The EC-130H Compass Call was delivered to the Air Force in 1982. It is an airborne tactical weapon system using a heavily modified version of the C-130 Hercules. It disrupts enemy command and control communications and limits adversary coordination essential for enemy-force management.

It was Aug. 23, 1954, when the prototype YC-130 took off for its inaugural flight from Lockheed Air Terminal — now Bob Hope Airport — in Los Angeles County, California. The aircraft’s history began in 1951 when the Air Force issued a request for proposal for a medium cargo plane. The Lockheed Aircraft Company was awarded the contract. The Air Force needed an aircraft that could haul large, bulky equipment over long distances, land in tight spaces, slow to 125 knots to allow for paratroop drops and, if need be, fly with one engine. Lockheed’s response to that was the C-130, an aircraft much different than the jets that were more the focus of the time. However, according to the Lockheed Martin website’s story of innovation on the C-130, the aircraft has been regarded as “something timeless” since its inaugural flight even by those such as Clarence “Kelly” Johnson, a Lockheed design engineer who thought the aircraft’s design would “destroy the Lockheed Company.” “It is the most versatile aircraft that has ever been manufactured,” said Master Sgt. Nicholas Palmer, 86th Operations Group evaluator loadmaster. “It’s a go-anywhere, do-anything platform that can be added to, taken away from and tailored to fit whatever mission requirements that may come up.” It is that versatility that has made the C-130 a valuable asset to the Air Force and many of its pilots. “The aspect I love about the C-130 is the mission,” said Capt. Matt Hiesel, 37th Airlift Squadron C-130J aircraft commander. “If you think this is a point A to point B mode of transportation aircraft, you couldn’t be more wrong. This plane does so much more. It’s so dynamic.” Though versatile and capable of adapting to many mission requirements, the C-130 has still managed to change the operations of several organizations, including the 86th Airlift Wing. In June 1992, the then 86th Fighter Wing, which only had F-16 Fighting Falcons, slowly transitioned into the 86th Wing, whose primary mission was airlift operations. However, it wasn’t until June 28, 1994, that the 86th Wing received the first two C-130E aircraft to be permanently based at Ramstein. The final transition to intra-theater airlift took place in October 1994 as the 37th Airlift Squadron officially transferred from the 435th AW to the 86th Wing, which then

62, the C-130E Hercules used the same Allison T56-A-7 engine as the C-130B but had two additional 1,290-gallon external fuel tanks and an increased maximum takeoff weight capability. June 1974 saw the powerful Allison T56-A-15 turboprop engines. Though nearly identical to the C-130E externally, the new engine brought major performance improvements. The latest C-130 to be produced, the C-130J Super Force inventory in February 1999. It has a six-bladed composite propeller, different from the previous four-bladed propeller, coupled to a Rolls-Royce AE2100D3 turboprop engine. The C-130J brings substantial ent over all previous models. The C-130J-30 is a stretch version with a 15-foot fuselage extension, which increases its capabilities even more.

AW to continue to provide theater airlift support for U.S. European Command and U.S. Africa Command missions, aeromedical evacuation support and the airlift of wounded warriors back to the U.S. “Take a look at history, and find somebody that doesn’t know this aircraft,” Palmer said. “Find somebody that hasn’t been touched by this aircraft, whether starving people in Africa and fed by humanitarian relief this aircraft delivered or one of our brothers in service who have been resupplied at an isolated forward operating base through airdrop.” With the C-130J’s incorporation of state-ofthe-art technology, which reduces manpower requirements, lowers operating and support costs and provides life-cycle cost savings as compared to earlier models, it is likely the C-130 will forever be a noted and cherished part of the 86th AW’s history.

The MC-130E Combat Talon first flew in 1966. The MC-130H Combat Talon II began official flying operations on Oct. 17, 1992. The Combat Talon and Combat Talon II provide infiltration, exfiltration and resupply of special operations forces and equipment in hostile or denied territory.

SCIENCE, from Page 15 learn and go through these processes is a wonderful and fun opportunity,” said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Lyvon White, 21st TSC’s 421st MultiMedical Battalion, 30th Medical Brigade maintenance officer, after making rainbow ice with his daughter, Skylar. “Being able to come here and perform these little science experiments together is good for the family.” As parents and children made their rounds to each science station, the employees of the CDC followed along to ensure all of the experiments were done correctly. They also kept a close eye on each experiment to avoid any unnecessary mess. Although the event lasted only an hour, both parents and CDC teachers expressed how much they enjoyed the event and the need for similar activities in the future. “Twice a month we host a parent involvement day where parents can get involved with what their kids are learning,” said Krysta Maybury, teacher at the CDC and wife of Staff Sgt. David Maybury, NCO assigned to the 21st TSC’s 7th Civil Support Command. “We would love to do more fun events like this, because it not only strengthens the bond between parents and children, but also enhances the learning environment for these kids.”
