German-American Community Office turns 15 Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Milton Hamilton 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

(From left to right) Consul General James Herman, U.S. Consulate General in Frankfurt; Kaiserslautern’s Lord Mayor, Dr. Klaus Weichel; and Lt. Gen. Richard Clark, 3rd Air Force and KMC commander, pose for a photo at the German-American Community Office’s 15th Anniversary ceremony Feb. 15 in Kaiserslautern. Herman, Weichel and Clark represent three different government entities that have come together to form an international partnership through GACO.

The German American Community Office celebrated its 15th anniversary Feb. 15 at its office in Kaiserslautern. GACO was established in 2003 as a way to provide services to Americans, both military and civilian, as well as Germans who have issues concerning German-American matters. “GACO was founded after 9/11 by Lord Mayor Bernhard Deubig, who said that all the world’s problems can only get solved together,” said Kaiserslautern’s Lord Mayor Dr. Klaus Weichel. “GACO is a unique institution and has an excellent reputation as an interSee GACO, Page 2

86th Dental Squadron knows the drill Story and photos by Senior Airman Devin Boyer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs A beam of light strikes a metal hook as it grinds against the surface, chipping away at the grime that clings onto the ivories. Just as the technician’s hands start to cramp, the cleaning is finished and the beam of light reflects off the pearly white teeth like an eclipse over a still ocean. This is one of many tasks 86th Dental Squadron Airmen perform multiple times a day. Between exams, cleanings and creating prosthetic teeth the dental clinic stays busy, ensuring service members are healthy. “We cover all of the active-duty (service) stationed at Ramstein, and we also service people who are in Africa

and all of Europe,” said Staff Sgt. Ashley Majewski, 86th DS oral preventative assistant. Last year, the 86th DS gave exams to 9,304 active-duty Air Force members, had 43,690 patient visits and had a total of 132,916 procedures — all with a staff of 87 enlisted members, 32 officers and 17 civilians. “We are the second largest dental unit in the Air Force,” said Majewski. “I see six patients a day, and I have three troops. You get a sense of fulfillment. Even though I’m just a dental assistant, we do a lot more than people think we do, and our providers give us a lot of hands-on experience.” Despite the busy schedule, Majewski has a positive outlook on working in See DENTAL SQUADRON, Page 3

This office gives them a place within the community that can steer them in the right direction and help them immerse. To make themselves known to the KMC, GACO participates in local markets and fairs. “We’re grateful for all the help GACO has provided over the years and look forward to a lasting partnership,” said Clark. GACO is located on Lauterstrasse 2 (Rathaus Nord) in Kaiserslautern, across from the city hall. Open hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 2 to 6 p.m. Thursday.

The morale is great, and our leadership is amazing.” While morale is a contributor to Majewski’s positive outlook, she genuinely enjoys doing the job. “It’s great to have a patient with a ton of tartar and then clean (their teeth), because they leave like a brand new person,” said Majewski, describing a rewarding part of the job. Scraping plaque and tartar off the teeth of KMC members isn’t the only thing the dental clinic does though. There are plenty behind-thescenes Airmen who add to the clinic’s mission effectiveness. “Here as a base dental laboratory technician, we support the 33 providers in the clinic,” said Tech. Sgt. Durriyyah Simpson, 86th DS base dental laboratory noncommissioned officer in charge. “Providers will take impressions on their patients, then we will get the impressions and fabricate anything that the patient will need.” Whenever a patient needs a new set of teeth or a mouth guard to protect them, base dental laboratory is on the case. “The dental lab is broken into two sections: a removable department and a fixed department,” Simpson said. “The removable department is going to be your mouth guards, retainers, dentures, surgical guides — those kinds of things. The fixed department is going to be anything that you can’t take out of your

I love dentures because you get to meet the patient, so when you get to see the final product all the way through, their quality of life changes so much. Knowing that I helped make them feel better about themselves, it makes me feel really good.” Whether it’s the lab technicians making teeth from scratch or oral preventative assistants polishing up patients’ pearly whites, the Airmen at the 86th DS keep on keeping on.

Ramstein welcomes new Ravens

Graduates of the Phoenix Raven Qualification Course pose for a class photo with their instructors and leadership Feb. 12 on Ramstein Air Base. U.S. Air Forces in Europe, Air Forces Africa and 86th Airlift Wing leadership requested a mobile training team to come and direct the Raven course at Ramstein.

Story and photos by Senior Airman Joshua Magbanua 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Security Forces Airmen from across the Kaiserslautern Military Community graduated from a Phoenix Raven Qualification Course Feb. 12 on Ramstein Air Base. The Airmen completed approximately three weeks of rigorous training to join the Air Force’s Raven program. The program focuses on the concept of specially-trained security forces Airmen who travel with and protect Air Force aircraft around the world. The Raven students came from the 86th Security Forces Squadron, 435th Security Forces Squadro and 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron. This particular class is unique because instead of taking place at the Raven program’s hub at Joint Base McGuireDix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, it took place at Ramstein. U.S. Air Forces in

Brig. Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr., 86th Airlift Wing Commander, gives a speech during a Phoenix Raven graduation ceremony Feb. 12 on Ramstein Air Base. Although Air Mobility Command owns the Raven program, a mobile training team came to Ramstein to conduct the Phoenix Raven Qualification Course upon the request of U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa leadership.

Europe and Air Forces Africa and 86th Airlift Wing leadership requested a mobile training team to come from JB MDL and conduct the course here. Master Sgt. Sean Cunningham, 421st Combat Training Squadron Phoenix Raven Qualification Course director, oversaw the class and served as the master of ceremonies for the graduation. He commended the graduates for their perseverance throughout the course. “On behalf of my fellow cadre and the United States Air Force Expeditionary Center, we thank you for the opportunity to train you,” he said. “We wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors and look forward to seeing you down range. You are the backbone of airpower from the ground up.” The Air Mobility Command Phoenix Raven Qualification Course involves daily physical training sessions, Armament Systems and Procedures Baton training, use-of-force scenarios, combatives and live-fire training. The course also includes 15 academic classes, which cover topics such as airfield assistance and embassy operations. The cadre who led the course at Ramstein described Raven training as the most intense training in the Air Force security forces world. Brig. Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr., 86th AW commander, congratulated the new Ravens and handed them their graduation certificates. The graduates also received the Raven tab, which they can now wear on their uniforms, and a coin with their Raven number on it. Only a small portion of security forces Airmen have the opportunity

join the Raven corps. Moore encouraged the graduates to take pride in their accomplishment and use their new found skills wherever they find themselves later on in their careers. “There are less than 3,000 of you anywhere in the world,” Moore said. “Your number is yours now, and it will be yours forever. You will find yourselves in a wide variety of situations that you haven’t planned for … situations that are uncertain and many situations that are unsafe. And what do you do? Simply rely on your training. Rest assured, if you rely on your training and execute it properly, we’ll take care of all the rest back home.” Master Sgt. Edward Mann IV, 86th Security Forces Squadron flight chief, one of the graduates in this class, expressed gratefulness for becoming a Raven and looked forward to more opportunities in his career.

Mann acknowledged that the training was very difficult and that a student needed not only physical strength but mental strength as well. He said he is proud not just of himself, but his classmates as well. “It’s an awesome accomplishment, and it’s something I’ve always wanted,” he said. “I see how happy these guys are, and that just makes me proud. Hopefully I get to lead some of these Airmen down range.” Knowing that there are trained Airmen standing guard all the time gives us all peace of mind, Moore said. “One of the things that keeps me from losing sleep at night is knowing we have the very best defenders, that they are keeping watch — no matter what time, no matter what airfield, no matter what weather conditions,” he said. “Everybody’s going to be safe, and we know that because you’re there.”

Core values apply even on internet Photo and story by Senior Airman Joshua Magbanua 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Since the late 1990s, people around the world have used social media networks to share their ideas and connect with friends. People from all walks of life, including the military, use social media to band together and form online communities. However, social media also became a place for people to vent their frustrations and express strong opinions — sometimes with negative repercussions. This is why the 86th Airlift Wing legal office reminds Airmen and their families to remain professional at all times, whether they are in the real world or on the world wide web. “General Patton told his troops, ‘You’re always on parade,’” said Capt. Riley Widener, 86th Airlift Wing assistant staff judge advocate. “Inherently, that’s an inspirational thought stemming from the fact that we are one team, one fight representing the

However, the law behind this statement is that the Uniform Code of Military Justice applies to all activeduty members no matter the time or physical location of the Airman.

online forum, specific Air Force Instructions exist that govern Airmen’s conduct on the web, Widener added. According to AFI 1-1, Airmen must refrain from posting information that is offensive, disrespectful and harmful to good order and discipline. If social media users expressing their opinions can be identified as Airmen, they must also make clear that their opinions are solely their own and not of the Air Force. Airmen in the past have

faced disciplinary actions because content they posted on the internet adversely affected their units and put the Air Force in a bad light. Senior Airman Danielle Abbey, 86th Airlift Wing military justice paralegal, said it is important for Airmen and Air Force standards. “It is important for Airmen to adhere to AFI 1-1 for the overall well-being of the Air Force,” she said. “Airmen are responsible for their actions, so it is important that everyone is held accountable.” Abbey added that the variety of punishments for misconduct online are as broad as the kind of content Airmen post. Disciplinary actions can range from verbal counseling to court martial, she said. In addition to maintaining the Air Force’s good image, Widener said that Airmen must also be mindful of operational security when posting information online. He used the example of a puzzle in which someone can use little pieces to build a big picture. Information shared within a closed group can also

be leaked to outside users, he added. “A meme shared within a group chat can easily be shared and distributed across a workplace and beyond,” Widener said. “When it comes to (operations security), I think the concern stems from the innocent publication of information that, when aggregated, can paint a picture of information that is potentially harmful.” Both Widener and Abbey acknowledged social media as a positive tool that Airmen may use for communication, morale and even recruitment. They added that the regulations imposed upon social media use in the Air Force should not deter Airmen from enjoying their favorite online content. “We aren’t any different from our civilian counterparts,” Widener said. “We like social media because it’s fun and instantly connects us to hundreds, if not thousands, of other people. Content can make us laugh, cry, think and, more than anything, entertain us. Nobody likes being bored!”

Customs clearance a must when selling cars, guns in Germany by Robert Szostek U.S. Army Customs Agency - Europe Public Affairs Office U.S. personnel must get a “Permit to Transfer” when selling or giving a U.S. Army Europe-plated vehicle to a non-ID cardholder in Germany. Failure to get the permit could lead to serious complications with German customs authorities. “It is important to get the permit to transfer before you sell, donate or transfer a car to a German car dealer, junkyard or person who is not an ID cardholder,” explained Fred Evans, chief of services at U.S. Army Customs Agency - Europe. This applies even if you did not receive money for the vehicle, for example, if it

was wrecked in an accident, he added. If you do not obtain this permit, you will eventually fail to clear vehicle registration when it is time to PCS. Customs authorities will require you to prove what happened to the vehicle. “This is obviously very difficult if the car was crushed long ago, you are in the middle of clearing out of Europe and you have no record of where the car went,” Evans continued. “If you cannot show what happened to the vehicle, you may be identified in a military police report and subject to disciplinary action. You may also have to pay a hefty tax demand based upon the value of the vehicle as well as possible fines from German Customs

authorities.” The “Permit to Transfer” (AE Form 550-175B) is available at the U.S. Forces customs office serving your garrison or airbase. The form is also required when you sell firearms or other expensive personal items to someone who is not an ID cardholder. More information on selling personal property in Germany is available online at www. eur.army.mil/opm/customs/ transfer.htm or by contacting your local U.S. Forces customs office.

Children select a book based on their reading ability and then read to their military volunteer for up to 30 minutes at a time.

Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Kristof Rixmann 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Volunteers from the 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron will read with children every Tuesday through June 5 at Vogelweh Elementary School on Vogelweh Military Complex. The program, “Read with Me,” is an initiative coordinated by Kerri Larimer, Vogelweh Elementary School library information specialist. Larimer says the Read with Me program is designed to provide increased opportunities for students to read

aloud. This practice increases reading fluency and student reading confidence. As part of the program, kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade teachers select several students to visit the elementary school information center where they read with military volunteers. Children select a book based on their reading ability and then read to their military volunteer for up to 30 minutes at a time.

cess. In total, Hilborn is scheduled to volunteer more than 36 hours throughout the program’s duration. “Reading with someone in a uniform encourages their reading confidence,” said Hilborn. “It helps them get out of their bubble, helps with reading comprehension, and builds their confidence when reading in front of people.” Dr. Lori Hill, Vogelweh Elementary School assistant principal, also believes in the importance of this program. “The program was very successful last year,” said Hill. “The teachers were quite pleased with their students’ addi-

tional opportunities to practice reading fluency. It was exciting for the children to read to a military member, and the volunteers were happy to be here.” Due to the popular demand of this program, volunteers will read with children once per week this year compared to once per month last year. There will be no Read with Me program on April 3 and April 10 because of spring break. Parents or volunteers with questions about the Read with Me program can contact Kerri Larimer at kerri.larimer@ eu.dodea.edu.

Sun interference causes AFN TV and radio outages by Staff Sgt. Ben Burgess AFN Kaiserslautern American Forces Network listeners and viewers can expect to lose service for up to 20 minutes at a time due to daily sun interference expected to last until March 7. Sun outages occur when the sun passes directly behind a satellite. Because the sun is far more powerful than a satellite, the sun’s energy briefly overpowers the signal when a satellite is directly between the receiving dish and the sun. This spring, AFN expects daily sun outages to take place between between Sunday and March 7. These outages can last from 10 to 20 minutes and will affect AFN radio and television services both on base and off.

Education and awareness for community members and leaders is key to combat these types of fraud cases, he said. “If the community is aware of the rules and regulations, they will be able to come forward when they suspect someone is committing these types of crimes. The sooner law enforcement is notified of these crimes, the better, as this ensures a smaller loss to the U.S. government,” he said. For the most part, single Soldiers living on base do not receive a housing allowance. However, unaccompanied service members in Europe may collect BAH for dependents residing in the States, the amount depending on location, pay grade and dependency status. BAH is a lump sum entitlement, meaning personnel can pocket the difference between the allowance they receive and the amount they pay for rent.

The Baumholder CID office explained that the trouble starts when overseas Soldiers lie about where their family is living in order to collect a higher BAH allowance or their family circumstances change, such as divorce or movement of the family members to a new location, and they do not report the changes to their finance office. Ahrend said community members should notify law enforcement or unit leadership when they see indicators of BAH or OHA fraud, such as an unaccompanied Soldier having family members reside in Germany yet still receiving BAH for an area in the States. Another example, he explained, is a Soldier claiming his or her dependents are residing in New York City, yet it is common knowledge that his family is actually residing in Fort Bliss, Texas, a monthly difference of almost $3,000 in BAH. USAG RP Commander Keith E.

Igyarto said unit commanders and their personnel sections are the first line of defense for perpetrators of this type of crime. “Commanders should know about their Soldiers’ marital status, whether dependents are residing here or in another location and what type of allowance they are collecting. If a commander knows that a Soldier has his family living here in RheinlandPfalz yet financial reports indicate that the Soldier is receiving BAH for dependents residing in the States, that’s a red flag and something that should be looked into immediately,” he said. Baumholder CID agreed that proper review of the Unit Commander Financial Report and proper inprocessing of the personnel section are crucial in terms of combatting this problem before it starts. The punishments for Soldiers committing this type of fraud vary based on the approximate loss to the U.S. government, but the Uniform Code of Military Justice reflects that confinement could be up to 10 years, including dishonorable discharge and forfeiture of all pay and allowances. “Make good choices,” Igyarto said. “We’re here to support you and your family, but we ask that you be truthful about your situation in return. I also ask community members to be aware of indicators. If you see something, say something. You’ll be playing an important role in maintaining Army readiness.”

Interactive training finds signs of adolescent drug, alcohol abuse Story and photos by Mary Ann Davis U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Installation Management Command Directorate

What can adults learn from a cluttered teen bedroom? That’s what “Hidden iN Plain Sight” participants found out Feb. 13 at Kaiserslautern Middle School. Hidden iN Plain Sight is designed to help the U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz adult community spot the warning signs of atrisk behavior by providing a hands-on training exhibit of a typical teenager’s bedroom for parents, educators, unit leadership, law enforcement and concerned adult community members to recognize common items that may be indicative of substance abuse. The training — the first of its kind in Installation Management CommandEurope — is a collaborative effort of community professionals, to include the garrison Army Substance Abuse Program and Civilian Misconduct offices, Ramstein and Kaiserslautern Adolescent Support and Counseling Services and U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command Kaiserslautern Drug Suppression Team investigators. “The goal of HiPS is to ensure our community adults have the tools necessary to assist our youth with making smart choices, avoiding substance abuse and recognizing how to obtain appropriate assistance, should they need it,” said Robert Leist, USAG RP Assistant Civilian Misconduct officer. During the two-hour training program, participants receive an introduction of community services, use and abuse trends happening in the community, an overview of ASACS and information on how host nation criminal laws apply to overseas civilians under the Status of Forces Agreement. Next, participants are given 15 minutes to identify items of concern and training aids of illicit substances in a mock

teenager’s bedroom exhibit. Later, CID investigators demonstrate a crime scene search and reveal items of concern or training aids that were not previously found. Afterward, the Civilian Misconduct office presents information on actions that can occur should an incident of misconduct be identified. Lastly, a question-and-answer panel with community professionals rounds out the training. “If this training can help a family working through alcohol or drug abuse or educate them on strategies to prevent adolescent substance abuse behaviors — it served its purpose,” said Susanna Leist, ASAP Prevention coordinator and Employee Assistance Program coordinator. “Society places incredible stress on our young people, and it is our job to provide tips and resources to help them make that difficult transition into adulthood by keeping them safe and supported now.” Another avenue to keep youth safe and supported is through the Adolescent Support and Counseling Services program. ASACS is a schooland community-based program providing free, confidential, voluntary and supportive counseling and educational prevention-based services for students from sixth to 12th grade in the Kaiserslautern Military Community. ASACS counselors are dually creden-

tialed through their respective clinics and serve at Kaiserslautern and Ramstein middle and high schools. Across the KMC, Germany and the European theater as a whole, alcohol, multiple forms of marijuana and products containing dextromethorphan, commonly referred to as “Triple Cs,” remain the most consistently used and abused drugs, said Dillon Welliver, ASACS clinical supervisor. “We are also seeing an increase of Attention Deficit Disorder prescription usage,” Welliver explained. “Typically, youth either abuse their prescriptions or obtain them from their friends.” Probably the No. 1 mitigating factor when it comes to preventing adolescent alcohol and drug use is parental engagement, Welliver said. “Knowing your kids, knowing who their friends are and just being a part of their daily lives is the biggest anti-drug

A panel of subject matter experts from around the Kaiserslautern Military Community provided information during the question-and-answer portion of the “Hidden iN Plain Sight” training Feb. 13. Experts from Army Substance Abuse Program and Civilian Misconduct offices, Ramstein and Kaiserslautern Adolescent Support and Counseling Services and U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command Kaiserslautern Drug Suppression Team investigators were on hand to answer community questions.

Parents, educators, unit leadership, law enforcement and concerned adult community members attended the two-hour interactive “Hidden iN Plain Sight” training to learn about youth drug and alcohol trends in the community.

action a parent can take,” he said. “If people suspect teens may be drinking or using drugs, address it with them directly. Displaying a genuine, calm, direct and kind approach will yield positive results. You can also contact your local ASACS counselor for assistance.” As a parent of four boys, Rosie Hillburn said the course was very informative. “I liked this training because it provided a lot of information about the resources in the community,” said Hillburn, a Family Readiness Support assistant for the 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command and 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. “The hands-on portion was very useful and showed us what the trends are and what to look for.” The HiPS initiative was proposed by USAG RP Commander Col. Keith E. Igyarto to bring awareness to current adolescent high-risk incidents of misconduct and provide the community with the tools needed to enhance the safety and security of the garrison. “This program empowers our community to better identify signs of use or abuse to protect the safety and welfare of our youth and our military communities,” the commander said. “The more who attend and acquire the tools to help our youth achieve success, the safer and more successful our community will be.” For more information or to sign up for future HiPS training, call USAG RP ASAP at 493-4909 or 0631-3406-4909; 493-1710 or 0631-3406-1710.

The 435th AGOW and 435th AEW celebrate 75th anniversary

by Jeffrey McGovern, PhD 435th Air Ground Operations Wing and 435th Air Expeditionary Wing historian Seventy-five years ago this month the U.S. Army Air Forces activated the 435th Troop Carrier Group at Bowman Field, Kentucky. When the Airmen of the 435th and four assigned troop carrier squadrons — the 75th, 76th, 77th and 78th — assembled for the first time February 25, 1943, they

unknowingly began an odyssey that continues to reverberate today. The moment established today’s 435th Air Ground Operations Wing and 435th Air Expeditionary Wing. It marked the start of a journey where the Airmen of yesterday continue to inspire the Airmen of today. Early in World War II, the U.S. Army Air Forces created troop carrier units as the air component for a new joint fighting force called the Airborne.

The Airborne mission was to drop parachute troops, tow combat gliders into enemy territory, fly vital supplies into forward battlefield areas and fly out casualties from the same. In October 1943, the 435th completed troop carrier training and deployed to the United Kingdom to begin operations. During Operation Neptune, the June 1944 cross-channel invasion of France, the 435th teamed with paratroop infantry of the 101st

Airborne Division and the glider artillery of the 82nd Airborne Division. The 435th also participated in all of the other airborne operations in the European Theater: Operation Dragoon, the August 1944 invasion of the South of France; Operation MarketGarden, the September 1944 invasion of Holland; Operation Repulse, the December 1944 aerial resupply to Bastogne, Belgium; and Operation Varsity, the March 1945 crossing of

The CG-4A was the primary combat glider for the United States Army Air Forces in World War II and one of two types of combat gliders used by the 435th Troop Carrier Group. Approximately 280 glider pilots formed the 435th Glider Combat Team, trained extensively on infantry weapons and tactics, and fought a key defensive action against a German counter-attack in a night fight nicknamed the “Battle of Burp Gun Corner.” Photo courtesy of National Archives and Records Administration, College Park, Maryland

The Douglas C-47 was the primary airlift and tow aircraft for the United States Army Air Forces in World War II and the power aircraft flown by the 435th Troop Carrier Group. During Operation Varsity, the 435th participated in the first large-scale double-tow glider combat mission putting 72 C-47 tow planes and 144 CG-4A gliders in the air in less than an hour, delivering a substantial element of an airborne division’s glider infantry and artillery to the initial fight.

the Rhine River near Wesel, Germany. During Operation Varsity, the 435th participated in the first large-scale double-tow glider combat mission. The 435th put 216 aircraft in the air in less than an hour — 72 C-47 tow planes and 144 CG-4A gliders. The effort delivered, for the first time, a substantial element of an airborne division’s glider infantry and artillery to the initial fight. The 435th also organized a truly unique unit — the 435th Glider Combat Team. Manned by approximately 280 of the 435th’s glider pilots, the team trained extensively on infantry weapons and tactics before the operation and, once on the ground, fought as an infantry company. As glider pilots turned infantrymen, they fought a key defensive action against a German counterattack in a night fight nicknamed the “Battle of Burp Gun Corner.” When not involved in operational missions, the 435th flew continuous sorties bringing ground forces critical supplies, such as fuels and munitions, and flew out casualties. Both missions resulted in thousands of limbs and lives saved. After the European war’s end in May 1945, the 435th continued to fly supply and evacuation missions. In August 1945, as part of the post-war drawdown, the 435th returned to the United

States. Soon after, and with little fanfare, the 435th inactivated in November 1945 at Kellogg Field, Michigan. Called back to duty, this time as an Air Force Reserve Troop Carrier Group, the 435th reactivated in July 1947, at Morrison Field, Florida. In June 1949, when the Air Force Reserve reorganized, it established the 435th Troop Carrier Wing and assigned to it the 435th Troop Carrier Group. The newly independent Air Force made wings the primary operational organization instead of groups. As wings were established, many were not provided lineage and honors. To fix this omission, in the mid-1950s the Air Force conferred, under particular circumstances, the lineage and honors of groups on their like-numbered wings. For the 435th, this meant the lineage and honors the 435th Troop Carrier Group earned prior to being assigned to the wing in 1949 also belonged to the 435th Troop Carrier Wing, now known as the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing and 435th Air Expeditionary Wing. As did the Airmen three generations ago, today’s Airmen assigned to the 435th Air Ground Operations and 435th Air Expeditionary wings continue to cut their own path and meet the challenges they encounter head-on with determination and innovation.

by Dr. (Maj.) Jonathan Harmon 86th Dental Squadron Growing up, I had a misguided idea of how to take care of my teeth. I suppose I just had a different definition of what was expected. For example, I thought it was acceptable to drink five sodas every day. At our house, it was normal to substitute f ruit

snacks for fruit. I even thought it was okay to only brush your teeth when your sister mocked you for having bad breath. Believe it or not, this is not how to properly care for your mouth or body. These types of situations are still too common among our youth. Childhood caries, frequently referred to as cavities, affect about 50 percent of all children in the United States. Luckily,

parents can learn from my mistakes and help their children avoid these preventable oral diseases. As a cavity-inducing bacterium would say, let me break it down. Cavities primarily form due to two reasons: poor diet and/or poor oral hygiene. Perfect these two areas and the vast majority of cavities can be prevented. Let me share some personal tips for parents to help protect your children’s teeth: Avoid sugary drinks. The recommended amount of sugar-laden beverages is zero. This not only includes sodas and energy drinks, but even fruit juices. Drink more water. This is the only “tooth safe” drink. It can help neutralize acids and wash away harmful foods, and you also need it to live. Call it a win-win. Eat more fruits and vegetables. If your child wants something sweet, try a piece of fruit. Many vegetables can assist with cleaning teeth. Celery is practically a vegetable toothbrush.

Limit snack time. Our family believed in breakfast, snack time, second snack time, lunch, snack time, dinner, post-dinner snack time and finally dessert. Continuously eating increases the food supply for the bacteria in your mouth, which in turn creates a very acidic environment. It is the acid produced by

the bacteria that breaks down tooth structure. By limiting the frequency of exposures, there will be less opportunity for the tooth structure to be broken down. Shop wisely. Don’t buy what you don’t want your children to consume. This may sound obvious, but it took me a long time to figure this out myself. In our home, we never purchase soda, rarely buy juice and only occasionally purchase sugary snacks and sweets. Know the proper brushing protocol. Brush for at least two minutes, twice daily. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush. Use fluoride toothpaste. Angle the tooth brush at a 45-degree angle towards the gums and brush in a circular fashion. Remember to brush the tongue! Floss! Flossing is something everyone knows they should do but consistently avoid. Think of the spaces in between your teeth as the armpits of the teeth. You wouldn’t bathe and not wash your armpits (I hope!). Don’t be the person who doesn’t clean their tooth armpits. Supervise. Parents need to be responsible for their children’s teeth. This means ensuring their teeth are properly cleaned. Children do not have the dexterity to brush and floss their own teeth properly until around age 8. I recommend a brushing-flossing touch-up by the parent following the child’s initial efforts until the child is capable of performing oral hygiene measures alone. Don’t allow you child to brush their teeth alone until you would allow them to brush your own teeth — and not have to do a follow up cleaning. Visit your dentist annually. Your dentist can educate you on the status of your children’s teeth and detect cavities and other oral conditions that may be present and require attention or intervention. Remember that it is better, and often less painful, to treat oral conditions earlier rather than later. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Start today to teach your children about good oral hygiene. Contact the Ramstein Dental Clinic at 479-2210 for any questions on dental health or to inquire about an exam appointment.

which is sponsored by the Atlantic Academy RheinlandPfalz in Kaiserslautern. “Our state initiative helps U.S. families to become a member of the local community,” said John Constance, project coordinator. “We try to give them the right answers to their emerging questions and being aware of German customs, local businesses, clubs and events can accelerate this adjustment after a PCS.” The Stammtisch gettogether usually highlights a specific theme. Bianka Pfannenstiel and her husband Mill, a retired U.S. Army member, had the idea to schedule this monthly event. They invite speakers from various offices and institutions to talk about interesting subjects. The guest speaker at the January Stammtisch was Elke Sittel, host nation advisor, 86th Airlift Wing. She talked about the different missions her office has and presented some of their programs. She talked about base tours, Grasroots, air-noise complaints and the GermanAmerican Community Office. “Our host nation office also gives advice to the 86th Airlift Wing commander, Brig. Gen. Richard G Moore Jr., about political and social matters in the KMC and Germany,” Sittel said. Stammtisch visitors were

interested in learning about all these manifold tasks and started a discussion about how the atmosphere changed after 9/11. Some guests said the relationship between Germans and Americans improved, others said it got worse. “This is one important idea of the Stammtisch, to involve both Americans and Germans in discussions and asking questions,” Constance said. The Pfannenstiels try to expand the Stammtisch by offering special events and different locations. The December Stammtisch took place in a private home. “I was happy to have about 20 guests in my home for a Christmas party,” said Glen Corlin, 86th Airlift Wing violence prevention integrator. “My wife and I enjoy being Stammtisch attendants for several times now.” Another regular Stammtisch attendant is Marisol Cediel from Ramstein-Miesenbach. “I worked for more than 40 years on Ramstein Air Base, and as a retiree, I enjoy coming here and being able to speak in English,” Cediel said. “I miss meeting Americans each day, and the Stammtisch gives me one opportunity to be around some and make new friends.” Bianka mentioned the idea of visiting the Pfennig Bazaar in March together or organizing a summer fest.

“We would love to welcome some young people who are interested in getting to know the German way of life and traditions and to join off-base festivities,” she said. “Our next Stammtisch at the Paradox restaurant will be at 6:30 p.m. March 6,” Bianka said. “We invited a representative from the local community paper to share interesting information.” For details, visit www. facebook.com/WelcometoRLP, get into contact with the Stammtisch group at https:// goo.gl/jB67r9, or email Constance at constance@ atlantische-akademie.de. NOTE: Stammtisch visitors parking across the street on the parking lot of NKD and the copy shop, must buy a parking ticket. Failure in doing so will result in a €30 fine.

John Constance, “Welcome to RheinlandPfalz” project coordinator at the Atlantic Academy Rheinland-Pfalz, welcomes the attendants of the German-American Stammtisch Feb. 6 at the Paradox restaurant in Ramstein-Miesenbach.

The German-American and International Women’s Club Kaiserslautern will sponsor its annual Pfennig Bazaar March 2 to 4 in the event hall of the Kaiserslautern Gartenschau. The Pfennig Bazaar is known as the biggest flea market in the West Palatinate. Its name originates in the former German currency, which was Deutsch Mark and Pfennigs, today Euro and cents. This bazaar is the club’s biggest fundraising event. All proceeds will be donated to various German, American and international charities, the Federation of GermanAmerican Clubs in Germany and student exchange programs. “Last year we donated a total amount of about €25,000 to USO, the Airmen’s Attic, scout groups and the GermanAmerican student exchange,” said Christine Schneider, German club president. The German-American

Women’s Club was established in 1956. Meanwhile, other nationalities are included, and the name carries the word international as well. “Our goal is to promote tolerance within cultures and international understanding, and foster friendship between German, American and other communities,” Schneider said. “We offer a variety of interest groups, to include literature, international cooking, reading lessons, handicrafts and traveling, and we organize evening events, concerts, trips and monthly get-togethers.” Club members also get involved in community activities. They take care of the kindergraves at Kaiserslautern’s main cemetery and support the Fisher House at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. For the Pfennig Bazaar, the club still needs donations, to include clothes for men, women, children, household goods, books, toys, electrical appliances and paintings. Bulky items such as furniture, mattresses, skis and suitcases as well as shoes, underwear,

A Christian fellowship that gathers to study God’s word verse by verse so we can know, glorify and serve Christ.

Teaching the village, reaching the world!

We meet Sundays at 11 a.m. For more info call 06371-616793 or visit our website www.CCK-Town.org Industriestr. 50 66862 Kindsbach

curtains and 110V electrical items will not be accepted. Donations can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday in the flower hall of the Gartenschau Kaiserslautern. “We hope many customers will find their way to the Pfennig Bazaar to get good bargains. That way, we’ll be able to donate again to many organizations, just like in recent years,” Schneider said. The Pfennig Bazaar is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 2, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 3 and 4. For more information on the Pfennig Bazaar, call the club’s president at 0160-99327090 or visit www.gaiwc.com.

The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. This play is based on the evolution trials of the 1920s, but its central theme — the pursuit of intellectual freedom — is just as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. Evening performance dates: 7 p.m. March 23 to 24, and April 13, 14, 20 and 21; and 3 p.m. Sunday matinees March 25, and April 15 and 22.

Is strong German housing market a bubble? by Bret Helenius *excerpts from Bloomberg.com The housing market in the U.S. has seen some volatile swings in recent years. How does Germany stack up to “the bubble” that America saw burst in 2007 when millions ended up “under water” in their mortgage. Over the last seven years, apartment prices in the biggest cities in Germany have risen over 60 percent, according to Deutsche Bank AG. In some cities like Munich, they have doubled in value. According to the German government, over 100 German cities have “overvalued” homes by as much as 30 percent. With values so high, you could call this a “bubble.” We all know from chewing gum as a kid, all bubbles eventually burst.

What is interesting is Germany does not actually seem like a bubble, but more like a hard rubber ball that has a nice protective thick rubber coating that is relatively strong.

Consider the fact the amount of debt compared to what homeowners owe on a house is relatively small and thus a correction is not likely. Angela Merkel’s government further reduced

the risk of a burst by giving financial regulators more power to intervene if home values get to an unsustainable level.

“Rising prices on their own aren’t enough to create a bubble  you have to look at the fundamentals,” Michael Read more on last page of Property Section

Voigtlaender, overseas coverage of financial and real estate markets at the Cologne Institute for Economic Research. “We have a stable mortgage market with steady equity ratios, and fairly moderate levels of home construction.” In the states, “flipping” has been commonplace for a long time (although a bit less popular after the bubble burst). However in Germany, owners keep their properties for longer periods of time than Americans and in many cases, forever! There is also a heavy property-speculation tax levied in Germany for “flipping” a property. Photo by Joe Mercier / Shutterstock.com

The German government also introduced a law to give BaFin, the financial regulator, the power to force banks to introduce stricter lending policies to dampen the market should a severe correction be on the rise. “There is currently no real estate bubble in Germany that acutely endangers financial stability,” said Bundesbank board member Andreas Dombret. “But the traffic lights are flashing yellow.” There are signs the property boom has finished its cycle. In Stuttgart and Frankfurt, rents have stopped increasing, which means prices may do the same.

USAFE Band visits Kosovo, celebrates 10th anniversary of independence

The U.S. Air Forces in Europe Band performs a concert at Red Hall in Pristina, Kosovo, to celebrate the country’s 10th anniversary of independence, Feb. 16. The event was hosted by the U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo, Greg Delawie, and broadcast live on Radio Television of Kosovo, the most-viewed television station in the country. The audience included diplomats, members of the Kosovo Security Forces and dozens of young Kosovars invited by the embassy.

PRISTINA, KOSOVO  The U.S. Air Forces in Europe Band returned Feb. 19 from a six-day trip to Kosovo to celebrate the country’s 10th anniversary of independence, capping a whirlwind trip that included building partnerships with the Kosovo Security Forces and outreach events across the country. Kosovo, a country of 1.8 million in the Balkans, declared independence from Serbia in February 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo. It has always enjoyed warm diplomatic relations with the U.S., and the USAFE Band

embarked on this trip at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy in Pristina. “It was an honor for us to come to Kosovo to celebrate this milestone,” said Lt. Col. Don Schofield, USAFE Band commander. “We met some fantastic people, we made a lot of great connections and overall I think it was a really successful visit.” For Schofield, the trip was about using music to build partnerships and friendships across cultures. Part of how they do that is to integrate with local musicians — both military and civilian. On Thursday the band visited the headquarters of the Kosovo Security Forces and sat for a performance alongside their counterparts in the

KSF Band. Even though the musicians had never met and didn’t speak the same language, they were able to communicate through music. “One of my favorite parts of this job is having the opportunity to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds,” said Staff Sgt. Justin Cockerham, keyboardist, vocalist and the band’s musical director. “We were able to sit down with the KSF Band and have a really fun musical conversation that included improvisation and musical cooperation, and I think it’s a great analogy for what we do as musicians in bringing cultures together and building relationships,” he said. “It’s really astounding, and I’m really honored to be part of it.” On Feb. 18 in Prizren, the band brought onstage Kosovar musicians Denisa Sadiku, a vocalist who excelled on the the show “The Voice Albania,” and Anda Gjini, a flute player in her final semester studying music at the University of Pristina. “The band was so wonderful,” said Gjini, a native of Prizren who was in town celebrating independence day with her family. “They were so friendly, and they made me feel like I had been playing with them for years, even though this was the first time I met them. I’m really thankful to be able to have this experience.” On Friday evening, the band performed at Red Hall in Pristina, an event hosted by the U.S. Ambassador

to Kosovo, Greg Delawie, and broadcast live on Radio Television of Kosovo, the most-viewed television station in the country. The audience included diplomats, members of the KSF and dozens of young Kosovars invited by the embassy. Other events included a show in Peja, in far western Kosovo, a live appearance on the RTK morning show, and a performance at an outdoor stage downtown Pristina in celebration of the country’s independence anniversary. While in Kosovo, the band shared some American culture with Kosovo Force, the NATO organization known as “KFOR,” at Camp Film City and Camp Bondsteel. At Camp Bondsteel, they were joined onstage by the commander of Multinational Battle Group-East, Col. Michael Spraggins, on trumpet, and U.S. Army Soldiers on tambourine and cow bell. The mission of KFOR, which has been in the country since the end of the Kosovo War in 1999, is to maintain a safe and secure environment. Several hundred U.S. troops, mostly at Camp Bondsteel, work side-by-side with their NATO allies and partners to carry out that mission. “We travel to different countries, and even though we give a piece of ourselves, we also try to take some of that country with us as well,” Schofield said. “It’s about memories, and a better understanding culturally — I think that’s the thing that I personally take away.”

Kaiserslautern standout Jada Branch signs scholarship Story and photo by Thomas Warner Contributing writer Walking inside the Kaiserslautern High School gymnasium, the banners make it clear that girls’ track and field has been the most successful program in the school’s athletic history. Senior standout Jada Branch, among the best to ever suit up for the Raiders, has signed a scholarship to compete in college at Louisiana Tech University. “They offered me a full-ride scholarship there and I am excited to go,” said Branch, the most dominant female on the Department of Defense Education Agency schools circuit here the past two years and the daughter of former Army soldiers Timothy and Olivia Branch. Wesley Miller is the Louisiana tech coach who is responsible for recruitment and ultimately convincing Branch to commit to come to Ruston, Louisiana, and join the Bulldogs. “She’s competed in so many events and she is good at all of them,” Miller said. “Jada is extremely athletic and she’s got a great build for a jumper, but she is very talented in the sprints, too. She could wind helping us in several areas. Something for her will be finding a couple of events and really dedicating to them. She has been in so many meets in different places, different countries, she has already been

Jada Branch

around lots of elite athletes. That is going to help her adjust well to college athletics.” Branch said she plans to study kinesiology — the study of mechanics of body movements — and has been enrolled here in health professions classes offered at KHS. “I am fascinated by the human body and sports injuries and how medically they are treated,” she said. After completion of her degree, Branch has plans to further her track and field career as a professional. She has in her sights the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games as two of her longterm goals and will be able to compete professionally around the world

if she performs well as a collegian. Branch is a member of the North Carolina-based Lights Out Track and Field Club, and has been invited this summer at an international meet in Australia, prior to going to Louisiana Tech. “I’ve gone back and forth to the States for camps and competitions, including Junior Olympics, and my parents have made a lot of sacrifices on my behalf to try and let me chase my goals,” Branch said. “I started out competing in gymnastics when I was young and we’ve lived at Fort Stewart in Georgia as well as in Mannheim and Heidelberg. I enrolled in Kaiserslautern Middle School when I was in sixth grade, so I’ve been here ever since.” Dennis DePriest is a former athletic director at Kaiserslautern and coaches Rose Lloyd and Andrew Panek have done the most work with Branch, who also serves with the Raider cheerleading corps. Branch has broken multiple European records or eclipsed longstanding KHS program highs in the long jump, triple jump, the 200 meters, and two hurdling events. “My involvement with Jada has been mainly from advisement standpoint but those other coaches and a few more that have since left, are the ones who’ve really helped her devel-

op,” DePriest said. “She is one of the best female athletes and even on the male side that I’ve seen come through. She has the power to execute jumps and the speed for the running events so she’s really versatile. “She has only run the 400 meters maybe five times in her life so she is a student of the game and wants to become excellent in that event. It becomes a skill set. The signing of a scholarship is a significant event for the student and family but it also brings great pride to the school itself.” Branch had to put in extra work marketing her overall portfolio after not receiving a lot of national press stateside due to being a student here in Europe. She has earned consecutive Athlete of the Year commendations by the Stars and Stripes news and will try to set more DODEA records during the coming regular season, leading up to the Euro finals in May. “I can say that everyone I run, jump or cheer against pushes me to work harder,” she said. “All of those people have an element of athleticism about them. All of them push me. I look for growth, whether it’s through a win or a loss, I expect and want to grow personally. I’m looking forward to my final season at Kaiserslautern and that’s what college is going to be about for me — growing as a person and as an athlete.”

Germany becomes part of the worldwide Parkrun movement

Photo above courtesy of Neckarau Parkrun. Top photo by Jolly/Shutterstock.com

Story courtesy of Parkrun Neckarau Germany was the 19th country to join the Parkrun movement in December 2017, with now nearly 300 people walking, running and volunteering at weekly parkruns in Berlin, Osnabrück, Frankfurt, Leipzig, Mannheim (currently closest location to the KMC) and Hanover. Many more locations will launch throughout 2018 and organisers are actively seeking volunteers interested in starting a parkrun in Ramstein. Parkrun is the world’s largest running event, the largest provider of free physical activity and quite possibly the largest provider of volunteering opportunities on the planet. They are a leading light in breaking down

the barriers to participation, combatting inactivity, fostering diversity and inclusion and promoting social justice. What is Parkrun? Parkrun is a weekly event for running, jogging, or walking over a distance of five kilometers. It doesn’t matter how fast you go. It doesn’t matter what you wear. What matters is that you participate. Parkrun starts every Saturday at 9:00 am in many countries worldwide. The events always take place in special, easy-to-reach places — for example in parks, on beaches or promenades. Parkrun is free for all participants. You register once and then participate in every parkrun run worldwide. All parkrun races are organized

by volunteers from the participants of the event — under the motto “by participants for participants”. Neckarau Event Director, David Sweeney says: “Parkrun is simply the perfect start to an active weekend for everyone. It’s also incredibly valuable to be part of a worldwide community of people committed to more community in their region. “ The Neckarau Parkrun course in Mannheim is about an hour’s drive from the KMC and a real treat for anyone who likes to be in direct contact with nature. The tree-lined path begins near the Strandbad and runs along the Rhine in the direction of Lindenhof, before it turns back through the forest park towards the start. The 5 kilometers are flat and easily accessible in the middle of one of the most beautiful areas of Mannheim — perfect in every season! The route is located near Mannheim’s city center and there is plenty of parking directly next to the start / finish area. Following each weekly parkrun, all participants are encouraged to spend some time together with a coffee or breakfast in the nearby Purino restaurant. “The social aspect of parkrun is as important as the physical activity itself,” emphasizes David. He adds: “Mannheim has a relatively large international expat community and we want to help make it easy to mix with the locals and meet new people. We are foreigners ourselves and

therefore we are particularly pleased to create a special opportunity for community building and getting to know each other through parkrun. “ So come along any Saturday to the Neckarau parkrun at Strandbad in Mannheim and jog or walk the five kilometers, or even volunteer to help with the event. If you have not yet registered, please do so before your first parkrun, here: https://www.parkrun. com.de/register/ The registration takes only a few minutes. Then print out your personal barcode. This is your ID card every Saturday at every parkrun event in the world. Wherever you want to run, just bring your printed barcode with you and be on time for 9:00am. Help with parkrun — An Interesting Opportunity Helping parkrun events is a great way to meet people, learn new things, and make a big contribution to community life. If you feel like helping, please write an email to neckarauteam@parkrun.com. You can also email your interest about starting a parkrun in Ramstein. Further information about parkrun in Germany can be found at https:// www.parkrun.com.de/Neckarau
