Silver Flag trains Airmen, builds partnerships by Senior Airman Rion Ehrman 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 435th Construction and Training Squadron hosted a weeklong Silver Flag exercise Aug. 20 to 26 on Ramstein. Silver Flag’s main goal is to train Airmen for contingency deployments and assist in building partnership capacities by training allied partners to set up a base from the ground up, dealing with the issues that arise in a deployed environment. This particular exercise featured three Azerbaijanis and two Bulgarians who attended to gain knowledge of U.S. Air Force processes during deployment operations. “The purpose of our visit was to get some knowledge (on Air Force deployment procedures),” said Maj. Ramil Hasanov, Azerbaijani deputy infantry battalion commander. “Back home we have our exercise, and we are going to exchange knowledge about what we learned here. In our country, we will have NATO examination, and we have some gaps

Roderick Amodia, ACS’s relocation readiness program manager, began by explaining why sponsorship training is important and briefed attendees on how to care for newcomers.


Ramstein Welfare Bazaar

Pfc. Aubrey Schye, a 5th Military Police Battalion Soldier, said she was glad she had a sponsor when she arrived in the KMC in 2010. She recently underwent a mandatory Army Community Service class to become a sponsor herself.


When Pfc. Aubrey Schye, a 5th Military Police Battalion Soldier, got back from a six-mile road march, she walked right into a mandatory Army Community Service class on sponsorship responsibilities. Schye, 20, was among five attendees at the class held recently at U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s Kleber Kaserne. Schye thought back to when she left the U.S. in late 2010, when no one really mentioned anything about a sponsor. She was just 18, fresh from high school, heading to her first duty station overseas. Thankfully, her sponsor reached out to her through Facebook. “You kind of think, ‘No one is going to be there,’” Schye said. “But they ended up picking me up over here when I got dropped off at the bus.”

Sponsorship training “increases awareness of command responsibilities for identifying, referring and coordinating with community agencies and programs to ensure successful integration,” Amodia said. “In a nutshell, ensure newcomers’ transitions are as smooth and stress free as possible.” Capt. Steven Rauschbach, the 5th MP’s personnel officer, said he experienced the consequences of bad sponsorship. “My first move, which was from after two years in Darmstadt to Fort Polk, was a catastrophe,” Rauschbach said. “There was no sponsor.” Despite the fact that sponsorship training is mandatory for Soldiers, attendance is low, said Michelle Thomas, the garrison’s ACS director. Advertisements are posted on American Forces Network, in the Kaiserslautern American newspaper and on Facebook. It’s also mentioned each week at

Priority One: readiness objectives have been set for Airmen at all levels to strive for: 1) Ensure individual readiness; 2) Ensure compliant and mission-ready units; and 3) Ensure effective mission integration.

by Col. Kenneth Thad Bibb Jr. 86th Airlift Wing vice commander Editor’s note: This is No. 1 of 5 articles in a series highlighting the priorities of the 86th Airlift Wing.


Baseball great Yogi Berra once said, “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going because you might not get there.” Where is our wing going? Do you know? Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde and wing senior leaders recently refined our wing’s priorities to better align with our mission and vision during our strategic planning process. Our wing’s mission statement challenges us to provide combat airlift and operate the Air Force’s premier installation to enable and assure strategic capabilities. And our vision remains clear: capable, credible, responsive Airmen — operationally ready — honored to serve. The wing commander named five priorities to support our mission statement and vision, the first of which is, “Maintain readiness to accomplish our mission safely and effectively anytime, anywhere.” The readiness of our Airmen and our installation is crucial to winning the

fight and shaping the future. Our nation depends on Ramstein readiness. Our location and skill sets put us at the pinnacle of today’s fight and potential conflicts and contingencies. Daily, we operate missions across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East while maintaining a key platform for a host of other EUCOM, AFRICOM, and CENTCOM missions. We have to be not only ready to build partnerships in peacetime through joint training and humanitarian operations, but also ready for short notice wartime taskings. To ensure we, as a wing, meet this priority,

Ensure individual readiness A few years ago, as a new captain, I couldn’t believe it when I heard the general on stage say, “Put yourself first.” I was astounded. Was he crazy? Had he not heard of service before self or our warrior ethos? Did he not understand our wingman concept? Courtesy graphic But then he explained he was talking about YOU — an acronym for readiness — Yourself, Others, Unit. He went on to explain that as Airmen, we are useless to the team unless we are individually ready. We can only fulfill our commitment to support our fellow Airmen if we can first carry our own weight. An Airman can only be ready to lead if his own readiness is squared away. Yes, individual readiness includes training in our core competencies, medical and physical fitness, and preparing ourselves to be resilient in the face of adversity. See PRIORITY, Page 5

Grow organizations through core group discussion by Maj. Mark Ashman 86th Maintenance Operations Squadron commander “Airmen make the mission happen.” Senior leaders have echoed this sentiment time and again to show their appreciation for what Airmen do on a daily basis. With the ever changing face of the Air Force, this sentiment has never been more important than it is today. In recent years, the Air Force has gone through trying times facing budget constraints while

or squadron commander’s course, one common thread he reiterated time and again was, “Every Airmen has a story. We all need to learn their stories.” He suggested that one way to learn their stories was to set aside time each month to sit down with our Airmen, talk with them and learn their stories. To shape Welsh’s vision, the USAFE staff put together some broad topics for leaders to fall back on as they weave core concepts such as integrity, honor, service, See DISCUSSION, Page 9

Hometown Holiday Greetings team to visit KMC by Tech. Sgt. Chad Thompson 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The Joint Hometown News Service will be taping 2012 holiday greetings at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today to Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday. The team will also be filming at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center outside the emergency room by the water fountain from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. Service members and civilian employees from all branches of service, their family members, and Department of Defense civilians are eligible to participate in sending a greeting back home to their families. Military members recording greetings must be in SILVER FLAG, from Page 1

and we need to learn from (Airmen).” Whether it was security detail for the simulated runway and explosive ordnance operations, fire safety training or the entire setup of a bare base with needed tents, Azerbaijani and Bulgarian counterparts, along with more than 140 Airmen, gained first-hand knowledge to take back to their home stations. “The main point of this is teamwork,” Hasanov said. “What I saw is if someone doesn’t know something, someone is there to help them.” Airmen put forth their skills in a combined effort to illustrate their readiness for whatever

uniform. Family members and spouses should come with their sponsors, but if the military member is deployed or on temporary duty, his or her spouse and children may record a greeting. Here are a few guidelines and things to bring for the holiday greeting: » Contact info: Ensure you have contact information of the family members who you would like to send the greetings to. Station managers will need phone numbers of the families so they can call them and tell them when the greetings will air. » Props: Santa hats, pets, banners and Christmas attire is encouraged. » Relax and have fun: Be cheerful and in the holiday spirit. Remember, these videos will be airing to send a holiday greeting and show your families

was thrown in their path during the ever-growing demand for being ready to accomplish the mission, especially during a deployment. “We’re all ultimately going to leave with honed war fighting skills that will help us downrange or during any other conflict,” said Staff Sgt. Patrick Riele, a member of the 49th Civil Engineer Squadron from Holloman Air Force Base, N.M. The training consisted of five days in a classroom where they covered how basic contingency operations are set up in an area of responsibility, chemical warfare and mission oriented protective postures. The last two days were spent in a field training environment.

how you are doing. » When you’re giving your greetings, try not to say Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, etc. Most of these greetings will air from Thanksgiving Day through New Year’s Day and could quickly become obsolete if the specific holiday mentioned has come and gone when your greeting airs. » No profanity or inappropriate attire. For those who have family in more than one area, it’s possible to record several greetings. Each greeting will be about 15 to 20 seconds, which is enough time to get in the holiday wishes to those closest to you. Keep in mind, there could be long lines during the days of shooting. Try and be patient with the team; they will do everything they can to ensure everyone’s greeting gets recorded.

McRaven: Beware of disclosing classified information by Donna Miles American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON — The commander of U.S. Special Operations is expressing concern about former members of the community who he said “are using their ‘celebrity status’ to advance their personal or professional agendas,” and warned those who divulge classified information will be held accountable. Navy Adm. William McRaven raised the issue in an email sent to the entire special operations community following several recent incidents involving former special operators. The latest was the announcement that a former Navy SEAL who participated in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden will publish a first-person account of the operation without first getting the book reviewed by the Defense Department for clearance. “While as retired or former service members, they are well within their rights to advocate for certain causes or write books about their adventures, it is disappointing when these actions either try to represent the broader S.O.F. community or expose sensitive information that could threaten the lives of their fellow warriors,” McRaven wrote. At the Pentagon Friday, spokesman George Little told reporters defense officials have not read the book, but do expect to “assess it for the poten-

tial that it contains classified information.” Any possible prosecution over leaked material would be up to the Justice Department, he said. McRaven acknowledged the benefit of reading other special operators’ stories. He noted that his thesis, while attending the Naval Postgraduate School, was based on “a rigorous examination of available literature” and provided background for his own book, “The Theory of Special Operations.” “Most of these books were wonderful accounts of courage, leadership, tough decision making and martial skill, all of which benefited me as I tried to understand our past and how it could affect missions in the future,” he said in his email. McRaven also recognized the value of movies that provide insight into the lives of special operations professionals, noting that seeing John Wayne’s appearance in “The Green Berets” influenced his own decision to become a special operator. “Countless stories have been told through the medium of film that needed to be told, and I am thankful that they were,” he wrote. But he drew a distinct line between what he called “recounting a story for the purposes of education or entertainment” and “telling a story that exposes sensitive activities just to garner greater readership and personal profit.” It’s a line, he said, that must be respected

PRIORITY, from Page 2

Individual readiness is more than being able to get through the mobility line — we have to do more than meet the minimum standard. Airmen are our most valued resource. With an ever smaller force, we must seek out opportunities to develop professionally. We must maximize our limited training opportunities, making the most of every exercise and every dollar. Finally, the most important aspect of readiness may be in our attitude. Have we internalized a warrior ethos? Is our integrity unwavering? Do we emit a contagious can-do spirit that conflict requires? Only with individually ready Airmen can we build compliant and mission-ready units. Ensure compliant and mission ready units If the family is the basic unit of society, then the squadron is the basic warfighting unit of the Air Force. The squadron is where we integrate the skills of our Airmen to build effective teams, providing the building blocks for our groups and wings. Having well-trained, ready Airmen does not guarantee well-trained, ready squadrons. In the last decades many of our Airmen have deployed individually to serve with distinction in expeditionary units. This capability will remain important, but we

— even after leaving the military. “Every member of the special operations community with a security clearance signed a nondisclosure agreement that was binding during and after service in the military,” he said in his email. “If the U.S. Special Operations Command finds that an active duty, retired or former service member violated that agreement and that exposure of information was detrimental to the safety of U.S. forces, then we will pursue every option available to hold members accountable, including criminal prosecution where appropriate.” Current and former special operators have both a moral obligation and legal duty to submit their works for pre-publication security review. “We are fully prepared to work with any author who is looking to tell his story and wants a straightforward assessment of the potential security impacts of their work,” he wrote. Addressing a related issue, McRaven expressed concern over “the growing trend of using the special operations ‘brand,’ our seal, symbols and unit names, as part of any political or special interest campaign.” “Let me be completely clear on this issue: U.S.S.O.C.O.M. does not endorse any political viewpoint, opinion or special interest,” he wrote. McRaven said he strongly encourages active-duty special operators to participate in the political process, as

must also reenergize our ability to deploy and operate at the squadron-, group- and wing-level. Unit war fighting skills must be an integral part of our unit training. For compliance, USAFE is leading the Air Force in a transition from emphasis on external inspections to a culture of continuous compliance, with wing commanders empowered to inspect and certify the readiness of their units. Wing commanders will look at how their units manage resources, lead people, improve the unit and execute the mission, with the MAJCOM inspectors validating wings have the proper compliance and control measures in place. What internal controls does your unit have in place to ensure compliance? How good are our processes? As personnel changed over this summer, did anything fall through the cracks, or did you have the processes in place to ensure success? Ensure effective mission integration Basketball legend Michael Jordan said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” I have never seen a base where teamwork and mission integration are more important. We have many teammates including Air Force, joint, U.S. government, host nation, and international partners. Integrating our mission with these partners is essential to completing the second half

appropriate under ethics rules, and for retired members to do the same. “However, when a group brands itself as special operations for the purpose of pushing a specific agenda, then they have misrepresented the entire nature of S.O.F. and life in the military,” he said. “Our promise to the American people is that we, the military, are nonpartisan, apolitical and will serve the president of the United States regardless of his political party,” McRaven emphasized. “By attaching a special operation’s moniker or a unit or service name to a political agenda, those individuals have now violated the most basic of our military principles.” McRaven encouraged former special operators to “voice their concerns from the highest hilltop” when acting as private citizens. However, by claiming to represent a broader SOF constituency as they do so, “they do a disservice to all of their SOF teammates who serve quietly and respectfully in support of this great nation,” he wrote. “Our reputation with the American people is as high as it has ever been,” McRaven told the special operations community. “The sacrifices of our men and women downrange have earned us that respect. Let us not diminish that respect by using our service in special operations to benefit a few at the expense of the many.”

of our mission statement: operate the Air Force’s premier installation to enable and assure strategic capabilities. Each of these partners brings different skills, knowledge and experience to the fight. Our base is a critical warfighting platform, and we can’t afford long start up times as we execute missions in support of combatant commanders. Communication and planning are key, but only through dedicated exercises and training can we ensure integration in a constantly changing environment. As Airmen, we have a proud heritage. Those who have gone before us have, through their preparations and readiness, with valor and courage, preserved our nation for future generations. Our legacy begins with our readiness for the fight. Our full-scale ORE in September, one of 38 exercises this year, will be our next opportunity to train and test ourselves against all three objectives. As each objective is met, we know we serve our nation with our best capabilities. Furthermore, we serve each other by upholding the standards that confirm the Airmen we stand next to are capable, credible and responsive as well as operationally ready to execute the mission. Finally, we serve the mission of the 86th Airlift Wing by safeguarding our priority to maintain readiness to accomplish our mission safely and effectively anytime, anywhere. Are you ready?

RAO attempts to establish retiree council


ilitary retirees, and widows of retirees, are an integral part of every military community in Germany. The KMC is the “home town” for many of these retirees and widows. Currently, nearly all military communities have a retiree council. These councils provide the respective community commanders with a window into a constituency that supports the community with volunteers. Every installation commander knows his retiree constituency is essentially a silent minority, yet no less a responsibility than his activeduty personnel, the family members accompanying them and the civilian members of the force. The retiree council would keep its commander informed about the

overall situation. The minutes of the retiree council meetings would be submitted to the commander for information and approval. The minutes are similar to a “situation report” the commander uses to feel the retiree pulse of his command. The KMC does not have a retiree council either on the Air Force or on the Army side of the community. Based on the success stories from other communities, a local retiree council would be a big plus for both the military community and the retirees. The KMC is a mix of primarily Air Force and Army retirees with some Navy and even Department of Defense civilian retirees added. A retiree council would logically be a mix of representatives from all retired military and civilians, including at

least one widow of a military retiree. The KMC Retiree Council would be chartered and members appointed by the commander. They would meet at least quarterly. Generally, meetings would be open to the public, and council members would be able to obtain information on grass roots concerns and needs. There would always be a lively exchange of ideas and information. Many widows could attend the meetings and appreciate the opportunity to be able to stay connected. The important issues would include host nation health care, Tricare claims, casualty assistance and general administrative support (retired pay, Social Security, veterans benefits, legal, customs regulations, etc.). The retiree council within the military community is supervised by the

Retirement Services Office (Army) or the Retiree Activities Office (Air Force). These offices provide guidance and support to the retiree council president and the members of the council. Although we have never had a retiree council in the KMC, there is no better time than the present to organize. We need a core cadre of patriots that want to continue to serve to accept the challenge and organize a council that the commander will charter and support. To show your interest and willingness to have a retiree council, send an email to 86aw.rao@ with “KMC Retiree Council” in the subject line, or call the Retiree Activities Office at 480-5486 or 06371-47- 5486.

Ramstein bests Spangdahlem in 2012 Lodging Olympics by Senior Airman Katherine Holt 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


n the 2011 Lodging Olympics, Ramstein fell to Spangdahlem by 1 minute and 11 seconds. This year, Ramstein took seven of the 12 events, winning by 1 minute 35 seconds. Each team was allowed 12 personnel and a team captain charged with completing some typical daily tasks in an expedited manner, but, for some team members, the tasks were far from familiar. “For my event, I was way out of my comfort zone,” said Senior Airman Dexter Alejandro about the blood borne pathogen event. “Since I work at the front desk, I rarely get the opportunity to work with housekeeping. I have never put on the blood borne pathogen suit before today.” The other events included: bed frame assembly, cart stocking, scavenger hunt, vacuum and dusting, towel folding, hard lock assembly, toilet paper toss, blind folded pyramid

“Events like this are a morale booster for our lodging folks. It brings everyone together and shows our appreciation for what they do every day. It is nice to take a time out for some friendly competition and fun.” — Sue Schwarten, 786th Force Support Squadron KMC Lodging assistant manager

stack, beach ball relay and luggage cart race. “The intensity makes each event tough,” said Raymond Mendiola, Team Spangdahlem participant. “We do these things on a daily basis, but when you factor in the time constraints, noise and adrenaline, it makes everything more difficult.” Mediola participated in last year’s event hosted by Spangdahlem and said this year Ramstein looked different. “Ramstein came for us this year,” Mendiola said. “They had the homecourt advantage and capitalized on it. We host next year, and we will be ready.” But it wasn’t just about taking home the trophy. “It is nice to get out from behind the desk and meet the people we work with,” Alejandro said. “Even though we may not work side by side, we came together as one team today and had a great time.” Great camaraderie and a good time was the goal of KMC lodging leadership. “Events like this are a morale booster for our lodging folks,” said Sue Schwarten, 786th Force Support Squadron KMC Lodging assistant manager. “It brings everyone together and shows our appreciation for what they do every day. It is nice to take a time out for some friendly competition and fun.” The 2013 Lodging Olympics are scheduled to be held at Spangdahlem.

Moves key to garrison’s updated closure timeline by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern HEIDELBERG, Germany — When Air Force Staff Sgt. Nick Kibbey arrived in Mannheim last November, the morning show radio announcer heard his unit, American Forces NetworkEurope, was moving to Sembach Kaserne. His wife, Shiloh, is a nurse looking for work at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. His son Royce, 5, is starting kindergarten. They are expecting a baby in March. Moving now makes sense, Kibbey said. “For me it’s just getting to where we’re going, to be settled and focused on things,” Kibbey said. “We want to do the move and try to achieve our short and long terms goals.” That’s exactly what Army leaders at U.S. Army Garrison BadenWürttemberg hope service members will consider, as a new U.S. Army Europe order directs all military personnel to depart the Heidelberg and Mannheim areas by Aug. 31, 2013. Soldiers and their families should begin planning now, said Col. Bryan DeCoster, USAGBW commander. “We want people to be proactive,” DeCoster said. “This is going to happen.” The orders mostly impact three Mannheim units. AFN headquarters and the U. S. Army Corrections Facility-Europe, both based at Coleman Barracks, will move to Sembach once buildings are made ready. The European Theater Network Operations Support Center at Mannheim’s Funari Barracks will eventually become the Information Processing Center at Wiesbaden’s Clay Kaserne. Coleman, Funari and Spinelli barracks will be work sites. Personnel will commute from either the Kaiserslautern or Wiesbaden area. Units may establish shuttles to make it easier for Soldiers. Some changes take effect immediately, DeCoster said. Soldiers and civilians on high-cost moves will no longer come to USAG-BW starting in September. Instead, they will be diverted to either Kaiserslautern or Wiesbaden. Soldiers and civilians on low-cost moves will be diverted beginning no later than January. Instead, they will be diverted to either Kaiserslautern or Wiesbaden. Single and unaccompanied personnel, considered low-cost moves, will be diverted beginning in January 2013. “The directive that everybody

will move to their gaining location, in this case either Kaiserslautern or Wiesbaden, allows the closure of Patrick Henry Village and the community shopping center earlier than anticipated under our original plan,” DeCoster said. The accelerated timeline affects roughly 230 military members, plus their families and government civilians, said Dianne Hamilton, director of USAG-BW’s transformation. The Army has closed several installations in Europe over the past decade. Experience from those closures has guided current plans, Hamilton said. “Once you get a population under 500, you have a hard time providing a level of services and support that’s commensurate to what we want for our Soldiers, civilians and family members,” Hamilton said. “It’s better to have people move to places with robust services.” In May, AFN-Europe leaders held a meeting to discuss transformation and find out who would like to move early, said Kibbey, 31, a nine-year Air Force veteran. “I’ll go ahead and move,” Kibbey said. “It makes sense for me, with a son in school and my wife looking for a job.” He’s already checked out the KMC for schools, day care and other services. The Army agreed with his plan. Kibbey’s now awaiting Air Force approval for his move, which raises some questions, he said. Communicating with the community and answering service members’ questions is key to success, DeCoster said. On Sept. 7, the garrison hosts a town hall meeting from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at PHV’s Village Pavilion. Also, community members can take part through Facebook and AFN. Also, the Herald Post newspaper will continue to provide the latest transformation updates. DeCoster is optimistic because of recent successes. Roughly 20 units in USAG-BW were already moved or inactivated this year. Now, Mannheim’s Benjamin Franklin Village — a housing area larger than PHV — is set to close. “We have not slipped off timeline at all. We remain committed to providing a high quality of life during our last year, but services will end at the latest when the garrison deactivates Sept. 30,” DeCoster said. “Through this process we’ve shown that with the right emphasis, plus leaders and the community pulling together, it can be done very effectively.”

The events will allow participants to show their enduring support for military and civilian POW/MIAs and their families, who have endured suffering and sacrifice to protect our freedoms and our way of life. The following POW/MIA events are scheduled for Sept. 21: • 8 a.m.: POW/MIA Memorial Fun Run at the 435th Construction and Training Squadron running trail (exit Ramstein West Gate and follow the CTS signs). This free run has no pre-registration. All units, squadrons and civilians who want to run are welcome. Formation run is optional. For details, email Master Sgt.

newcomers’ briefings. In March, U.S. Army Europe mandated that sponsorship training must be done in person, rather than online as in the past. Still, by mid-year, less than 600 people in Kaiserslautern had attended. “The training is available, and word about the program is out there,” Thomas said. “We’re just not getting the attendance.” The USAREUR order also says that government civilians will soon have to undergo inprocessing and attend culture college, Thomas said. “Sponsors are truly the gatekeepers to a newly arriving Soldier’s perception of their

new command and community,” Thomas said. “This initial interaction of the sponsor and Soldier will set the tone for this new Soldier’s experience while in the Kaiserslautern community or any new duty station in the world.” After the class, Spc. Nathaniel Reynolds, 23, now sees his role as a sponsor as making sure he provides things necessary to an incoming Soldier, he said. “I can take care of him, show him around and where he would go to take care of appointments — stuff like that,” Reynolds said. Sponsorship training is available each month at Pulaski Barracks. For more information, call 493-4203 or 0631-3406 4203.

86th VRS hosts biggest car show in four years Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Holly Cook 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The sixth annual 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron Booster Club Car Show was held Aug. 18 at Kapaun Air Station. More than 130 cars, trucks and motorcycles from the KMC entered the competition in support of raising funds for the 86th VRS Booster Club. About 90 volunteers from 86th VRS came to help the booster club and venders from around the local area set up tents and mobile food booths to advertise and give away prizes to patrons and volunteers. “There’s lots of food, music and cars. Last year was the biggest show we had in four years, but this year was even bigger,” said Senior Airman Nickolas Perez, 86th VRS squadron programs manager. “It’s probably one of the biggest events VRS has ever had.” Near the end of the car show, trophies were given for best American,

Japanese, European, classics, truck/ SUV, street bikes, cruiser bikes, sound, and best in category and best in show. A total of 30 trophies were given to the winners of the different categories. But the main event of the show was a silent auction for the car of Airman 1st Class Zachary Cuddeback. “After everything that happened with the Cuddeback situation, it just seemed like a great idea to get his car out here, not just to show it off but to give it for a silent auction so somebody else can enjoy it. That’s what he would have wanted,” Perez said. “He would want someone to enjoy his car.” Just two weeks after Cuddeback was killed during an attack at Frankfurt International Airport, Staff Sgt. Michael Leone, 86th VRS vehicle operator, volunteered to fully repair the Nissan 200SX, which Cuddeback had planned on repairing himself. “There was word going around the shop that they were just getting rid of the car. I found out what type of car it was and I was like, ‘No! Don’t junk

that! That’s a good car,’” Leone said. “Why don’t we put some money into it and go ahead and sell it?” Leone and other members of 86th VRS pitched in and collectively spent a total of €3,500 ($4,358.66) over a span of 18 months to fully repair the car. After getting the car up and run-

ning, Leone decided to present the vehicle in a silent auction with all proceeds going toward the A1C Zachary Cuddeback Memorial Fund. With bids starting at $2,500, the 86th VRS team ended out the show with the car going to the highest bid of $4,525.

camaraderie, excellence and courage into core-group discussions. Within the 86th Maintenance Group, and more specifically the 86th Maintenance Operations Squadron, we have taken hold and embraced Welsh’s vision. To date, we have held two coregroup sessions. The first core-group session focused on excellence, a topic all Airmen could rally around. During four individually led sessions, there was a unified consensus of what excellence is. This common topic morphed into a springboard for Airmen, within each of the groups, to open up and share personal experience, beliefs and morals associated with their upbringing, personal morals and family values. In the second core-group session, supervisors branched out and chose topics related to camaraderie, integrity, honor and service. This session proved to be very beneficial because some of the more junior Airmen were asked to lead discussions. This empowered them to research their topics, lead the group, allocate time for each member to contribute and recap those key points that were discussed. Additionally, the feedback after the core group sessions concluded was very positive and the core group leaders were praised for their leadership and courage. In the camaraderie core-group session, the Airmen felt that our squadron was a tightly knit unit, and they took this opportunity to provide suggestions to further enhance camaraderie and boost morale. In the integrity core-group session, Airmen discussed the importance of completing tasks to the best of their ability and agreed that each task should be accomplished with integrity. They also agreed that sometimes doing the right thing is not always the popular decision, but it is the right decision. In the core-group session that discussed honor, the team spent some time defining honor — discussing actions that are deemed honorable and identifying examples seen throughout their career where honor was comprised. Finally, in the core-group session that touched on service, the team clearly understood the meaning of service before self, but they struggled with coming to terms with striking a proper balance between work and family. The team concluded the session by agreeing that each member determines the proper balance for themselves. At this point in time, we are benefiting from the mission of core groups because we are building meaningful communities within the squadron and we have begun to “produce meaningful peer conversations on the values and virtues of being an Airman.” How has your organization grown, and are you benefitting from core-group discussion?

Airman 1st Class Jacob Kozlowski, 721st Aerial Port Squadron Fleet Services specialist, pumps fluorine anti-smell solution into a C-5 Galaxy on Ramstein. Sewage, water and trash are some of the functions Fleet Services performs before every flight.

721st APS get personnel, cargo moving by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Editor’s note: This is the first article in a three-part series on 721st APS operations. The 721st Aerial Port Squadron has an important role in the Air Force’s mission, and there are more than 500 Airmen, U.S. civilians and host nation personnel and local national employyes spread over a variety of flights who make the mission successful. “We have a unit full of highly skilled and highly motivated aerial port professionals committed to the mission,” said Lt. Col. Melvin Maxwell, 721st APS commander. The mission of the 721st APS is to develop Airmen, provide air transportation services here at Ramstein and sustain three combatant commands. “A quarter of the Air Mobility Command missions that transit the theater come through here,” Maxwell said. “Our location and this squadron is extremely important in sustaining the downrange warfighter.” The Air Terminal Operations Center, a flight in the 721st APS, is the command and control nerve center for the entire aerial port. The ATOC is the problem solving division of the 721st APS, its personnel ensure cargo gets onto the right flight and that everything and everyone is where it needs to be on flights coming in and out of Germany. “The mission here is so huge we are always busy,” said Staff Sgt. Eric Reising, 721st APS information controller. “We are always communicating with the different units and

“We could not accomplish our mission without strong partnerships. The 721st APS and the 313th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron are our AMC partners at Ramstein, providing the aircraft maintenance and command and control capabilities necessary to execute our missions.” — Lt. Col. Melvin Maxwell, 721st APS commander checking with them to make sure everything gets where it needs to go.” Part of that mission is making sure the 721st APS Ramstein Passenger Terminal gets all the information they need to complete their mission. The passenger terminal processes space-available and duty passengers on contingency, channel and special assignment airlift missions. “The space-available program allows military members from all branches of service and some family members to fly to other military and some civilian ports at little or no cost to them,” said Senior Master Sgt. Rich Rizzo, 721st APS Squadron operations superintendent. “There were more than 298,000 people who went through the passenger terminal last year, 51,000 of them being space-available passengers.” With all the incoming aircraft there are many things that need to be done to keep those aircraft fueled, stocked and ready to go. The Fleet Services Flight provides ground servicing, including lavatory flushing and potable water, deliver expendable and non-expendable kits, meals, igloos, pillows and blankets for passenger comfort. Airmen of Fleet Services work on a variety of aircraft, each having a

different routine to them. “We work eight-hour shifts, servicing a large amount of aircraft,” said Airman 1st Class Evan Hughes, Fleet Services specialist. “We work on anything from the 37th Airlift Squadron’s C-130J (Super Hercules) aircraft to the Boeing 747 commercial aircraft that come through.” The Fleet Services Flight won its second straight Air Mobility Command Fleet Services Flight of the year award and won its third straight Air Mobility Operations Wing flight of the year, becoming the first flight to achieve both milestones. “We could not accomplish our mission without strong partnerships,” Maxwell said. “The 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron and the 313th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron are our AMC partners at Ramstein, providing the aircraft maintenance and command and control capabilities necessary to execute our missions. Additionally, our 86th Airlift Wing partners who sustain our vehicles, fuel these AMC cargo aircraft and maintain our facilities and the ramp are major contributors in making the air mobility mission happen.” (Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes contributed to this article.)

Girl Scouts turns 100!

This year, Girl Scouts turns 100. With this in mind, and in honor of World Thinking Day, Landstuhl Junior Troop 175 discussed various projects and then voted to make their annual project a time capsule. World Thinking Day allows girls to participate in activities and projects to honor sister Girl Scouts and Girl Scouting in 150 other countries where Scouting is active. The idea of doing a time capsule came from assistant leaders Heather Goodwin, who did this herself while in the Girl Scouts back in New Mexico. Troop 175 chose to leave their capsule in the Landstuhl Library because it is a safe place and would allow people to view it. For the time capsule, the girls wrote reports on various projects, including current technologies, trends and events. Each girl also wrote a letter, which will be read by a Girl Scout in 50 years when the capsule is opened. The capsule is on display under lock and key at the library. Troop 175 is led by Dee Bergman and Goodwin. The troop is made up of 10 fourth and fifth grade girls.

Warthen Contributing writer A ceremony for 11 African-American Soldiers killed by the German SS during the Battle of the Bulge takes place at 11 a.m. Sept. 22 in Wereth, Belgium. A bus will leave from the Vogelweh Bowling Alley parking lot at 7 a.m. for those wishing to attend. RSVPs must be made by Sept. 10 via email to The cost is $30 for transportation. The 11 Soldiers were separated from their unit while evading the Germans. While looking for food and shelter, they approached the Mathius Langer house in Wereth, and the family took them in. About an hour later, a German patrol approached the house. The Americans surrendered, were taken out and were shot and dumped into a ditch where their bodies remained until mid-February. The official report noted they had been brutalized, with broken legs, bayonet wounds to the head, and fingers cut off. These 11 Soldiers from Alabama remained unknown to the world until 1994 when Herman Langer, son of Mathius, erected a small cross in the corner of the pasture where they had been murdered. On the cross were the names of the Soldiers: Curtis Adams, George Davis, Thomas J. Forte, Robert Green, Jim Leatherwood, Bradley Meagler, Nathaniel Moss, George W. Moten, William M. Pritchett, James A. Stewart and Due W. Turner. In 2001, three Belgians took on the task of creating a more prominent memorial to them, as well as to honor all African-American GIs of World War II. The dedication of the new memorial was held in May 2004. Road signs now indicate the location of the memorial, and the Belgian Tourist Bureau lists it in its “Battle of the Bulge” brochures. The Wereth Massacre documentary premiered Feb. 19, 2011, at the World War II Museum in New Orleans. It was honored with the Founders’ Choice Award at the fifth annual GI Film Festival at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy issued the following message to all Air Force personnel: As our nation pays tribute to American workers during Labor Day weekend, we thank all Airmen for their dedicated service and hard work every day of the year. While many of you enjoy a well-earned break to celebrate the last holiday of the summer season, we urge you to plan your activities with care and to make smart decisions that will keep you, your family and your friends safe. Safety is a concern for all of us. Sadly, more than 40 Airmen have died in off-duty mishaps this year, including 27 Airmen killed in motor vehicle accidents. Many of these tragic losses may have been preventable, the result of reckless behavior such as excessive speed, irresponsible alcohol use, failure to use proper safety gear or inattention. Equally alarming, our Air Force family has lost 70 Airmen to suicide this year. Our goal is to eliminate all preventable mishaps, and you can help by setting a standard of zero tolerance for reckless behavior and through aware-

ness of subtle behavioral changes that could indicate heightened levels of stress in yourself or others. Because one lost life is too many, we urge all Airmen to look out for one another and remember that safety requires deliberate forethought. Your family, friends, and fellow Airmen depend on you. Please take time to consider safety as you enjoy Labor Day weekend, and as always, thank you for all you do for our Air Force and our nation. (Courtesy of Armed Forces News Service)

Redesigned program eases Airmen’s transition to civilian life by Joel Fortner Air Force Public Affairs Agency WASHINGTON — A redesigned program will help ease every Airman’s transition to civilian life and better apply their military experience, Air Force officials said. The program is the first major overhaul of the transition assistance program for military members in nearly 20 years. The effort began in response to a call from President Barack Obama in August 2011 to ensure all service members are “career ready” when they leave the military. Slated to begin service-wide in November, the current three-day, optional program will be expanded to five days and has been redesigned into a comprehensive, mandatory program that includes pre-separation counseling, a military-to-civilian skills review, a Veterans Affairs benefits briefing, financial planning support, job search skills building, and individual transition plan preparation.

A pilot program was held July 9 to 13 at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, which, according to officials, allowed Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs to test the initiative. According to Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, the redesigned program bolsters and standardizes the transition services that service members receive prior to retiring or separating from the military to make them employment ready. “Our goal is to provide Airmen with a comprehensive transition assistance program that prepares them for life after the military, whether that’s pursuing education, working in the public or civilian sector, or starting a business,” Donley said. Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy said the program is as good for the civilian sector as it is for Airmen. “Employers are looking for educated, trained, experienced people like those who are separating from the Air Force,” he said. “This pro-

gram will help smooth our Airmen’s transitions to civilian life.” Under the old program, separating Guardsmen and Reservists were often left to their own devices. Roy said another benefit of this new program is the inclusion of the Total Force. “We want to take care of all our Airmen, and this program does that,” he said. “No component of our Total Force deserves more help transitioning than another.” By October 2013, three two-day optional sessions on pursuing a technical certification, starting a business, or pursuing a higher educational degree will also be offered to Airmen. “Our Airmen have extraordinary technical expertise and world-class leadership skills that are in high demand,” Donley said. “This program will help them apply their experience to additional training, formal education, and develop successful civilian careers.” For more information, email

New BTO to help Airmen make USAFE processes more efficient, effective by Master Sgt. Brian Bahret U.S. Air Forces in Europe Public Affairs Before becoming the Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Welsh challenged the U.S. Air Forces in Europe to find more efficient and effective ways to use its resources. “Current fiscal realities require commanders to take a hard look at how to most efficiently support and execute our missions within growing budget constraints,” said Welsh in an official memo to USAFE commanders. “With these challenges before us, I’m convinced the only way to maintain a viable capability for (USAFE’s) two combatant commanders is to manage financial risks by reducing costs.” Committed to following through with his predecessor’s initiative, Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, U.S. Air Forces in Europe commander, said, “As the Department of Defense decreases its spending to meet

Congressional budget requirements, it becomes increasingly more important for every Airman to take an active role to find ways to use the resources we do have more efficiently and effectively.” In response, USAFE recently stood up a Business Transformation Office on Ramstein. The office’s mission is to enable USAFE to improve business and operational processes, maximize mission capabilities, and reduce costs. “We’re going to look at areas where USAFE’s spending a lot of money,” said Col. Scott Forest, Headquarters USAFE chief of BTO. “Those are areas that we have the potential to realize some big savings. We want to inspire Airmen to figure out how to do the process better, and then realize the savings or efficiency.” Forest said within the BTO concept, experts from Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century and other functional areas were consoli-

dated under one roof. “All the functions AFSO21 had will be inherent in BTO’s mission set,” Forest said. “We’ll still offer those services to all the wings including policy, guidance, questions to (Headquarters Air Force), and training.” However, he added, the BTO office won’t be limited solely to the AFSO21 process improvement approach; it will employ other resources as well. Forest said the nine-person BTO staff is well-versed in a variety of analytical practices and includes experts with multiple masters degrees, three Ph.Ds, and several AFSO21 black belts. “We have a lot of experience here, a lot of academic training and a lot of intellectual fire power to apply to any problem,” he said. “We also bring a cross-functional look at the problems; that yields some creative solutions.” He said identifying the processes that could use improvements and realizing potential

solutions relies heavily on the process owners. For that reason the BTO will start with a top-down approach. “Commanders know where they can potentially realize the greatest savings and the greatest impact on business processes through AFSO21 or rapid improvement events,” he said. Once they do discover efficiencies, the BTO will work to incorporate them into the corporate process, “so the changes have discipline and the changes are lasting,” Forest said. The office’s position in the command structure will help enable lasting change. “Being at a MAJCOM working for the commander, we’re halfway between the unit level and the policy setters at the top in the Pentagon,” Forest said. “If it’s not feasible for Airmen to implement it, we can reach back to that policy level and say, ‘We need to tweak policy here,’ to enable that Airman on the ‘pointy

end’ to make that change.” With one month as an active organization, the BTO staff began operations by researching two of Welsh’s high interest areas — facilities operations and sustainment, and supply and transportation, Forest said. He said one of their objectives is to determine if a project offers enough potential savings throughout the command to apply “the silver bullet against the problem set.” “We’re going to make sure we’re applying ourselves to the big rocks,” he said. “If there really isn’t any potential for us to help, then we’ll look in other areas.” Forest said the BTO doesn’t intend to make unwarranted change; they want to ensure the Air Force is maximizing the use of all of its resources. “We want anything that’s more efficient to be more effective,” he said. “We’re going to need the help of all Airmen to do that. In the end, as always, it’s Airmen who are making it happen.”

African air chiefs gather to build partnerships, strengthen region Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards AFAFRICA Public Affairs DAKAR, Senegal — Military leaders from 10 different nations across Northwest Africa and the U.S., in partnership with the African Center for Strategic Studies, gathered for the Regional Air Chiefs Conference here Tuesday through Thursday. The commander of U.S. Air Forces Africa, Gen. Philip Breedlove, was on hand at the conference to deliver the keynote speech highlighting the concept of a multinational partnership to help improve regional stability to a crowd of more than 100 attendees comprised of air chiefs, distinguished guests and media personnel. “Partnering … to enable African solutions to African problems is still our primary philosophy,” said Breedlove. “This conference is a prime example of our desire to hear and to learn from the many perspectives our African partners bring to the table.” The conference will focus on four key priorities: cross regional issues; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; regional approach to airlift; and air/ ground integration. “Together we can create a region where all citizens can live in peace. As you pursue these goals, we will be there, side by side and shoulder to shoulder,” said Lewis Lukens, the U.S. ambassador in Senegal. “In our meeting before the start of this conference, General Breedlove mentioned the NATO motto, ‘stronger together than apart,’ that

applies equally in West Africa as it does in Europe.” Also attending the conference as a panel speaker was Maj. Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, the 3rd Air Force vice commander, who talked about bringing together lasting African partnerships and the future of Northern and Western Africa. “This week (together) we will bring new ideas to the table,” Everhart said. We have a saying in English, to think outside the box; let’s do just that.” One challenge all nations in the region face is a strong presence of al-Qaida Brig. Gen. Alain Pereira, from Senegal, speaks with local Senegalese media in the Islamic Maghreb. AQIM is an after the keynote speech given by Gen.
