Chapter closes after 54-year journey Story and photo by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Finally reaching the end of his career, the exhausted medical ofﬁcer cleared his ofﬁce, starting with the photos he collected throughout the years. Each picture frame was carefully lifted off the once decorated wall. He held each frame ﬁrmly in his aging hand and ran a ﬁnger along its smooth edges, not to wipe the accumulation of dry, insigniﬁcant dust that had collected over the years, but to recall a 54-year journey that has engrained itself within the relic. The memories were of a young childhood ﬁlled with hope and death for the sake of becoming a football star, which, oblivious to John Mace all those years ago, would only be the start to a much greater future. “I have always loved sports,” said Mace, who worked as a special operations medical ofﬁcer for the 86th Medical Group. “Even as a young boy I knew football was my passion, and I was willing to do anything to be a pro-star.” Growing up in a small town outside of Morganton, North Carolina, the young Mace John Mace, 86th Medical Group special operations medical officer, holds a handful of coins he has collected throughout his 54 years in the military Dec. 8 on Ramstein. Mace is scheduled to retire today after spending 25 years in active duty and 29 more in civil service.

Tool to safeguard PII scheduled for AF-wide December rollout
According to German road traffic rules, motorists are not authorized to idle their engines during winter as a way to warm up the interior and avoid scraping ice. Idling causes noise and pollution. Disobeying this rule can result in a high fine.

Unfortunately, the attack does not stop there. Once an attacker has acquired enough information, he can simulate user accounts or even pass off communications on behalf of the service member, who is likely still unaware that his information has been compromised. Those false communications could be leveraged to gain digital access to Air Force systems, or even physical access to installations and personnel. Obviously, the See ROLLOUT, Page 2

it’s a total-force problem, and DSET is an effective tool the total force can use right now to help reduce inadvertent PII breaches.” Beyond potential identity theft, PII breaches can lead to signiﬁcant compromises in operational security. For example, a well-meaning member working to meet an operational deadline sends an unencrypted email, containing PII on several unit members, to a “non .mil” email account.

Shift Happens: adapt, overcome by Maj. Ryan Anderson 86th Materiel Maintenance Squadron commander
ilitary life pushes us and our families toward all sorts of great opportunities, but sometimes these sudden shifts are unwelcome, unwanted and completely unexpected. The most important thing to remember during the times you’re pushed outside of your comfort zone is we possess an unbelievable capability for adapting to change and remaining resilient. Even though it has been drilled into us that we must focus on routine and develop strict habits, our true strength is often found only in the face of adversity. Throughout our careers, we experience challenges and difficulties while transitioning through new stages of life: a marriage or divorce, being away from family, uncertainty of force management, or being forced to move around the world. Rightfully so, unforeseen shifts in our lives cause us distress, uncertainty and fear. So what can we do to stay strong? Try keeping these rules in mind when it feels like the world won’t stop spinning. Be prepared:
Don’t let an unplanned event sidetrack your life. Being ready and anticipating a change is the best way to not be your own worst enemy when you’ve been pushed out of your comfort zone. If you plan ahead and prepare yourself for the changes that are about to happen, you can better anticipate their outcomes and take the necessary steps to secure your well-being. Understand the greater reason: It is easy to only focus on the here and now and not look at the bigger picture. There is often a greater reason behind every new event. What may seem like a tragedy at first can ultimately end up being for your own good. Each one of your hardships is a catalyst for change. seize opportUnities: Life changes that you face come with challenges, but they’re also accompanied by brand new opportunities. You may be forced into a new position that you don’t know or feel comfortable taking on. These can actually be great opportunities to learn new skills, discover new ways to solve problems and create lasting solutions. Embrace your challenges and break from what you’re used to; new opportunities mean detaching from old patterns that may keep you stuck and unable to grow.
get yoUr head right: Alter your mentality to adapt to your changes. Your training and education have prepared you to possess the skills required to succeed. Utilize your range of talents to thrive in your challenging situation. It all begins with having the right mentality and the right attitude. distract with prodUctivity: The single best way to overcome any life challenge is to be productive. Don’t focus on the negative of the challenge. Use it as an opportunity to take up new hobbies that can also help your physical, mental or social health, such as exercise, education or travel. Being productive allows you to reroute your attention toward positive activities, and it re-energizes you with something fresh and different. reflect on past challenges: Whenever you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, remember that you have been through tough times before. Whether it was a previous move to a new assignment, deployment or struggle with family, apply some of the coping skills that you have used in the past. It is also important to remember that time is your inevitable healing See shift, Page 7
negative implications caused by PII breaches are severe, and equipping the force with tools to mitigate the risk is paramount. DSET version 1.6.1, an updated version of the DSET 1.6.0 software already in use by the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve Command, and Air Force Space Command, contains fixes for some previously identified software bugs as well as enhancements to make the digital tool more effective. “DSET 1.6.0 launched back in July to three major commands,” said Alonzo Pugh, cyber business system analyst for 24th Air Force. “Feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable for the use of the tool, and version 1.6.1 is definitely ready for Air Force-wide usage.”
DSET is regarded as a short-term fix to help all Air Force network users protect PII, specifically if that information is to be included in an email communication. DSET 1.6.1 still only scans for PII in the form of social security numbers, leaving overall responsibility on the user to safeguard the sensitive information in all of its forms. “First, the user should ask him or herself if the PII in the email is truly necessary,” Pugh said. “DSET scans the email draft before transmission. If PII is identified, DSET will notify the user through a series of pop-up windows. This interactivity allows the user to make a conscious decision of how to proceed with the information in question.” Pugh said if the information must be transmitted, encrypting the PII is all that is necessary to protect the data
during transmission. DSET will trigger when it detects potential PII in an email, giving the user the opportunity to delete the information if not necessary to the communication, encrypt the information, or override and transmit the email as originally written. If the file containing PII is already encrypted — through the Microsoft Office “protect” permission feature or some other software — DSET will not trigger and the email can be sent as usual to any recipient’s email address, whether “.mil,” “.com,” etc. However, if the email itself is encrypted through Microsoft Outlook, the communication is only safe to transmit to a recipient’s “.mil” email address. An email encrypted in this fashion cannot be sent to any “non .mil” addresses. If the user attempts to do so, DSET and Microsoft Outlook will provide pop-up boxes
explaining the user’s options. “I can’t overstress the importance of reading the information in the popup box,” Pugh said. “Read the training materials on the use of DSET; read the training slides on how to use Microsoft Office features to encrypt various documents; understand how these tools can help you safeguard PII.” Users have multiple tools at their disposal to protect PII if encrypting email is not feasible, but if electronic transmission of sensitive PII is operationally required, users can leverage approved Department of Defense file exchange services at https://safe. amrdec.army.mil/safe.

did what he could to learn and play football better, even with the limited teams available in his area. “I joined an industrial league, a church league and really anything else I could get my hands on,” Mace said. “But due to money, the biggest team I could join at the time was maxed at six kids, and no one received any great scholarships to any big colleges through that. So, I knew if I wanted to get anywhere with this dream of mine I would need to gain a residence within the city limits where the resources and skills were available.” Leaving everything he knew behind, the young eighth-grader went off to the city in search of some way to continue his passion. “I already found the high school I wanted to attend and met with the coach to see if he would be willing to add me to the team,” Mace said. “Being as big then as I am now so many years later, and of course that much faster, he more than gladly accepted me. “That was only the first step,” he continued. “I then needed to find a place to mark as my residence, and that’s when I remembered there was a funeral home across the street that had buried my uncle. So I went there to see if the owner would be willing to help.” After speaking with the owner and explaining his situation, Mace soon had a new place to stay and a job, making $5 a week. A few years later, Mace quickly rose through the ranks on the field, and his passion to be a pro seemed to be only a field goal away. “Everything was going so well I almost couldn’t believe it,” he said as a touch of sadness crept into a once energetic voice. “I was on the varsity team, had two scholarships, and in one night it was all taken from me; my passion, the scholarships, the life I worked so hard for — gone.” In his senior year, Mace tore the ligaments between one of his knees and was hospitalized for 10 days, restricted to the confines of a bed. “There was no microscopic surgery back in my day, so they would have had to pop my knee open and perform the repairs, which provided a 50/50 chance of some improvement, or I would walk with a limp the rest of my life,” the medical officer said. “Even though I knew everything I had strived for was gone, I still didn’t want to live with a limp, so I said no.” During his stay in the hospital, he received visitors from the colleges he had scholarships for. Though their visit was to close the doors on a future Mace wanted, they did open up a door to something much more. They suggested he play football with the Army.
John Mace stands next to a military police vehicle during his time in the Army.
After recovering, Mace ambitiously joined the Army as a medic where he would be able to put some of the anatomy skills he learned at the funeral home to good use. “I finished training and arrived on station at a large hospital in Frankfurt, Germany,” he said. “The place was huge: 600 beds, doctors everywhere. They even had their own military police.” Assigned to the ward, the young medical technician felt as though he could be contributing more, so he submitted a request to join the military police in Washington, D.C. “It only took about 30 days before I got a call from the military personnel office saying they had my orders, and man did I run down,” Mace said. “I couldn’t have been more excited, but it was surprising how that excitement vanished almost instantly once he read where I was going.” Mace would soon be going to the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, the U.S. military’s only maximum-security facility as well as the home for inmates on their way to death row. “I expressed how this wasn’t what I requested, and the guy behind the desk said, ‘Well, you did put in for a special assignment,’” Mace said. “Then I asked him, ‘Well, what makes me so special that the Army would want me there?’ The guy said it was because I was six feet tall and 200 pounds. That’s how I was special.” The 200-pound giant went off to Kansas where he worked as a guard surrounded by 515 inmates daily. But he said one of the hardest parts during that time were the exhaustingly long hours. “After a while, those hours mixed with the type of environment I worked on really took a toll on me,” Mace said.
“I felt like the only difference between me and the inmates is at the end of the day I went home — they didn’t. “I couldn’t do it anymore,” he continued. “I felt like I really needed to get my life together and stop going from job to job (within the disciplinary barracks). I heard about an open position for a guard in the laundry mat, and the best part was I would be working from 7 in the morning until 3 p.m. However, the inmates doing the laundry were the most dangerous in the barracks.” Mace found out there was only an opening because the previous guard had been attacked, but the short hours were more than worth it to him, or so he thought at first. “Something most people don’t think about is that you can’t hear someone screaming for help over the deafening noise coming off the industrial size dryers,” Mace said. “That’s something I learned rather quickly. “One day I was walking past a dryer, doing my usual rounds, and the only reason I stopped was because I thought I saw a face,” he continued. “Sure enough someone was inside a dryer being tossed around and I couldn’t hear him hollering. Even after I rescued him he wouldn’t give up the names of who shoved him in the giant machine. The prisoners had their own code of justice, and the things I’ve seen … I had to separate.” Mace separated from the Army and enjoyed the civilian life for three months before joining the U.S. Air Force. “I went back to medical and was stationed in Germany again where I practiced executive health,” he said. “This was when I realized what my true passion was.” While working in executive health,
Mace would interact with high-ranking officials from all branches of the military, as well as rescued prisoners of war and foreign dignitaries. “I was doing some real good,” Mace said. “All my life I thought my purpose was to play football, and I hated myself the day that dream was taken away, but looking back I see it wasn’t a curse but the start to a much happier life.” When Mace finally retired after 25 years of total military service as a master sergeant, he faced the difficult choice of what to do with the rest of his life. Just six months after separating from the military, he decided to return to the Air Force where he spent another 29 years in civil service, creating a legacy seen in the lives preserved through routine examinations, aiding service members in need of immediate care, and creating trauma kits used to safeguard military leaders. “It has been a very long and exciting life,” Mace said. “Through my 25 years in the uniform and 29 more as civil service, I am grateful for all the things I was able to experience. While this chapter in my life is closing, I hope to go off and continue to do what the military has shown me to be my passion — helping people.” Many years led Mace to this point in his life — years filled with hope when he began his dream of becoming a football star, tribulation when that dream was forever taken away and satisfaction when he found his true calling through the Air Force. After taking a pause to wash away the 54 years of nostalgia, he placed the picture frame that brought so many memories of excitement into a dull cardboard box, leaving a museum filled of adventure and accomplishment empty.

Renovated ‘Wings Lounge’ flies in with fresh look Story and photos by Tech. Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs
he Ramstein Wings Lounge reopened in the Ramstein Officers’ Club Dec. 5, unveiling new decor that embraces the past, present and future of Airmen here. The renovation came at the request of Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente, 86th Airlift Wing commander, who explained he wanted a place for his Airmen to congregate — a place they could be proud of, relax, and share mentoring moments with fellow Airmen and service members. “The lounge needed a new look ... I wanted to recognize the Airmen of today who have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and focus on the accom-
plishments of what Team Ramstein does,” Mordente said. “This was our opportunity to reshape the lounge for our Airmen; to see it complete is better than I could have imagined or hoped for.” The room now hosts custom tabletops that feature unit patches, canvas photos taken from missions Ramstein has supported in the last 13 years and an extra large billiards-style table, called a snooker table, specifically designed to play the game “Crud,” a tradition that dates back to the early 1980s with Canadian forces pilots. “When you walk into the lounge you’ll see action photos from all of the wings that make up Team Ramstein, from Airmen loading and jumping out of aircraft to (explosive ordnance disposal) team training — all things today’s Airmen can relate to,” Mordente said. “This is a place where we can come
together as Airmen to socialize, get to know one another, cross-talk and use it as an opportunity to act more as a family — the thing I love about the Air Force.” Trish Dotson, volunteer spouse and lead designer for the renovation, was asked to redesign the lounge. Armed with Mordente’s vision, she took the dream and created the new lounge from start to finish in only 10 days. “We wanted to get more Airmen in here,” said Dotson, who is also the president of the Ramstein Officers’ Spouses Club. “We want the younger crowd in here to make it their own, be more involved and be able to have fun in an environment they can be comfortable in.” For more information, call the Ramstein Officers’ Club at 06371-47-7621 or 480-7621.
Officer attache duty applications due Dec. 29 by Debbie Gildea Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Eligible active-duty line officers interested in attache duty must submit their application by Dec. 29, Air Force officials said Dec. 2.

force. Give yourself time to process the challenge and let the dust settle before you move forward. Look toward the future: Think about how in the near future you will feel secure, stable and in the right place. Visualize the issues getting solved. What steps do you need to take? Who can help you? How will you feel, look or react when that day is here? Paint the picture of a time when the details that seem disorganized have fallen into place. We are creatures of habit, and it is easy to settle into our comfort zones. However, sudden shifts are unavoidable. If we accept our challenges as critical to our personal progress, we can get past the inconveniences of an unwanted situation. The unpredictability of life can become what we thrive on, and maybe we will even begin to look forward to our next set of challenges. Shift happens; embrace it!

‘First in Support’ main body arrives in Senegal Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs DAKAR, Senegal — After weeks of preparation, the main body elements of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command headquarters, 7th Civil Support Command, 30th Medical Brigade and 16th Sustainment Brigade deployed Nov. 17 to Dakar, Senegal, in support of Operation United Assistance. The team’s mission in Dakar is to provide strategic logistical support to the Joint Forces Command-United Assistance in the form of a regional support element, coupled with a small team from U.S. Army Africa. Their goal was to set the conditions in Dakar to receive members from the 101st Sustainment Brigade and a U.S. Air Force C-130 squadron. The first members of the Regional Support Element-United Assistance arrived in mid-October, tasked with bridging the gap between USARAF and the 101st Sust. Bde. They were also tasked with establishing a life support area and intermediate staging base for equipment and personnel. “We (the first group) came in and started building the LSA and setting the stage for units to come in after us,” said Maj. Tomasz E. Zaremba, RSE-
UA assistant liaison officer. “Our No. 1 priority was to set the conditions for other units and services to come here and begin their mission in support of United Assistance.” The establishment of an LSA required coordination with the host government and creating contracts for services. The USARAF and RSE-UA team partnered with other organizations in Senegal to aquire land on a Senegalese air base and instituted contracts to clear, level and develop that land. They also contracted for Force Provider showers, bathrooms, laundry machines and living tents to house up to 300 multiservice personnel, said Maj. Tyler D. Olsen, RSEUA logistics officer. “The U.S. Army Africa team that came before us had already started most of the processes to acquire the land and institute the contracts; we continued to work with them, the project managers and the contracting team from the 414th Contracting Support Brigade to see this project to fruition,” Olsen said. “The credit for all of this really goes to those teams. Everyone worked extremely hard to make this happen.” The team also bridged the gap for strategic and operational-level logistics by providing leadership and management of the LSA while awaiting the arrival of the 101 Sust. Bde. They received incoming and outgo-

ing passengers, ensured the LSA was stocked with food and drinking water, coordinated for fuel and gave traveling personnel a place to live. “This is where we really showed how valuable the 21st Theater Sustainment Command can be; we provided theater level logistical support while simultaneously managing the LSA,” Olsen said. When the main body of 21st TSC personnel arrived, they immediately established a tactical operations center
and began improving the communications capabilities at the LSA. The team will remain in place until the 101st Sust. Bde. assumes the mission. “The Soldiers and all of our joint and multinational partners have done an outstanding job accomplishing the mission and supporting Operation United Assistance,” said Col. Barry Diehl, RSE-UA officer in charge. “We will maintain our mission focus and sharpen our skills until our change of mission and redeployment.”

Capt. Spanky: snow tires, safe traveling Hello, Team Ramstein! We finally got our first taste of snow this holiday season. I guess someone started dreaming of a white Christmas a little early, because there are forecasts predicting more snow is headed our way. Now, I’m sure some of you will be anxious to build a snowman, but I have a task that I need you to make sure you accomplish as soon as possible if you haven’t done so already: put on your winter tires! In Germany, vehicles must have snow tires when driving on snowy or icy roads. All-weather tires that are labeled with the letters “M+S” are acceptable in place of snow tires. Motorists who don’t obey this regulation risk paying a fine. Furthermore, some insurance companies can refuse to pay for the damage in case of an accident due to wrong tires. However, a loss of money isn’t my biggest concern. I am more worried about you all being injured in an accident or worse. Snow-covered or icy roads present a hazard to even the most experienced of drivers. The chance tires sliding and losing control of a vehicle will inevitably be increased regardless of who is behind the wheel. Snow and all-weather tires help minimize that risk, but you can also do more
to even further decrease it. Be sure to slow down. Plan to give yourself enough time to get to your destination so that you do not end up speeding. With many accidents happening only a few miles away from most people’s homes, this is a precaution that should be taken into account even for small trips. Be courteous to each other. ‘Tis the season for giving so give each other space and time to make smart and safe traffic movements. You can’t control anyone but yourself on the road, but if we all make the decision to be safer, then we not only help protect ourselves and our passenger but also the people driving around us. Be vigilant. Other drivers and snow are not the only potential hazards you will face on the road. You never really know what you will come across on the roads, especially at night. So be sure that your vision is clear at all times. Clean off all snow and ice from your windows, mirrors and roof before beginning travel. A slight moment of impaired vision can mean the difference between going home or to the hospital. Remember, you are our most precious asset! Do all that you can to ensure that you and your most precious assets remain safe. Until next time.

Know customs policies before sending packages stateside by Robert Szostek U.S. Army Europe Office of the Provost Marshal WIESBADEN, Germany â€” Mailing packages to the United States from Europe involves many prohibitions, restrictions and import duty rules. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s important for members of the U.S. forces community to get the facts before sending parcels stateside, said the U.S. European Command Customs and Border Clearance Agency. â€œMany people do not know that Customs and Border Protection may fine you at least $100 if you mail meat or any meat products to the
states,â€? said Scott Sanner, U.S. Department of Agriculture adviser at the CBCA. Banned products include canned meats, pate, salami, sausage and soup mixes containing meat. It is also illegal to mail handguns, alcoholic beverages and many other items to the U.S. Some articles may require the sender to get a special import permit. A customs declaration must be fixed to every parcel going to the states and falsifying it is a federal crime. â€œYou must also realize that foreign-made goods sent to the United States may be subject to the payment of duty,â€? said Mike Dean, director of
the CBCA. â€œEven if you mail the items to yourself or buy them in a military exchange, the recipient may still have to pay duty and the customs user fee.â€? U.S. residents may receive up to $100 worth of foreignmade goods per day, but they have to pay duty on the total value of gifts exceeding that amount. U.S. forces personnel can avoid the pitfalls by getting the â€œKnow Before You Goâ€? pamphlet from any military customs office or checking the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website at www. cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/id_ visa/kbyg/gifts.xml.
