Partnership efficiently brings home equipment by Senior Airman Katherine Holt 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

wenty-six Airmen from the 435th Contingency Response Group traveled to Romania in partnership with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command to redeploy the 170th Brigade Combat team’s equipment from Afghanistan to their home unit in Baumholder, Germany. The operation took less than a month with the 435th CRG and the 21st TSC loading more than 1,528 short tons of equipment onto 45 rail cars and 23 trucks. “The speed and efficiency is critical to success so the Soldiers have their equipment back as soon as they have reconstituted from their deployment,” said Col. John Shapland, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing commander. “The mission was crucial to safely, effectively and efficiently returning the 170th BCT’s equipment.” Made up of 15 Air Force specialty codes, the contingency response element provided

esiliency Day provided Ramstein Airmen with an opportunity to enhance their performance and boost their resiliency by focusing on the “Complete Airman.” This year, unit leadership and front line supervisors were given the opportunity to develop and customize their own resiliency packages that fit the unique needs of their Airmen. Emphasis

was placed on the four domains of resiliency through a highly interactive format that allowed for leadership involvement and the building of “relationships.” Helping agencies representing the four domains provided consultative services to assist leadership in shaping their unit’s resiliency packages and coordinated outside activities to supplement their unit’s in-house curriculum. Resiliency Day was a team effort for all involved. For the physi-

LIFESTYLES

The 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 1st Human Resources Sustainment Center conducted a walkthrough rehearsal at the Ramstein Passenger Terminal Monday in preparation for the Ramstein Gateway Reception Center’s first Patriot Express flight, which is set to arrive Tuesday. The Patriot Express is a Department of Defense-chartered method of air travel scheduled to transit between the Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Ramstein. It will be the primary airlift for Soldiers, family

members and DOD civilians on permanent change of station and temporary duty orders between Germany and the U.S. The reception team at RAB will track flights and possible delays and be readily available to receive incoming personnel regardless of the time the flight arrives. The PE reception liaisons will also help passengers clear customs and get onto pre-arranged military transportation to their new duty station. “We’re doing the final rehearsal just to make sure we’ve got everything in

Knights Take Flight by Maj. Lou Marnell 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron commander

T

he Blue Knights, Airmen in the 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, live our Air Force core values every day. Their contributions ensure the Air Force mission is accomplished through their hard work and dedication. Among these maintenance professionals is a unique group known as the Flying Crew Chiefs. Flying Crew Chiefs are a select group of individuals who are handpicked due

to their high standards and technical abilities. A crew chief is responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of assigned aircraft and performs post-flight/pre-flight inspections, changes tires and brakes, ensures the aircraft forms are documented, and assists other technicians. When clearing a grounding write-up, one technician will sign off the job as the “corrected by” and a 7-level will inspect their work and sign off the “inspected by” portion of the forms. Now, take a FCC and their responsibility increases dramatically. An FCC is not only responsible for

normal day-to-day tasks but must also learn other AFSCs’ tasks. This is because they travel with their aircraft on the road and are responsible for keeping vital Air Mobility Division tasked missions going. As our aircraft fly EUCOM, AFRICOM and CENTCOM missions, these incredible maintainers are cross utilized trained across other maintenance specialties. This allows us to send one maintainer on the road and keep our missions going. That is quite a responsibility for a staff sergeant or technical sergeant as they make tough decisions and are relied on

heavily to do a job that may take several maintainers. These Airmen are allowed to sign off their own jobs in the forms. What does it take to be an FCC? First, a maintainer must have 12 months of experience on assigned aircraft. For C-130Js, this is tough because it is still a fairly new aircraft, and we get our manning from various airframes. Once they are task qualified, they must get CUT trained for other specialties and become proficient in these areas. The FCC manager and crew chief section chief will then screen their records and recommend

them to conduct orientation and check flights to gauge their conduct and ability to meet the demanding standards. Then, they must be interviewed by the aircraft maintenance unit superintendent and be approved by the commander. This process can take almost 18 months to complete. I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few of these outstanding performers. Staff Sgts. Bronshay Limson and Luis Serrano are C-130J FCCs and each have flown more than 200 sorties since becoming FCCs. They See MAINTAINER, Page 9

ARI: Pillar I ― Mission Focus Commentary

by Col. Stephen Lambert 86th Airlift Wing vice commander

G

eneral Hyde recently outlined the 86th Airlift Wing’s new focus on combating alcohol related incidents in a column printed Jan. 13 on these same pages. Under the slogan “No ARIs, No Excuses … Drink Responsibly,” our campaign plan is based on three main pillars: 1. Mission focus, 2. Taking care of each other, and 3. Personal accountability. Today, I want to zero in on our first pillar, Mission Focus. Our nation depends on our commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution, a document that represents one of the grandest experiments of modern times. It guarantees freedoms and rights that are the envy of many people around

the world. As America’s military, our ultimate mission is the defense of our constitutional republic. The U.S. military is, hands down, the most trusted institution in America ― more trusted than any company, church or political party. The reason is that our fellow citizens understand and value our commitment to our mission and they appreciate the fact we live by a special set of standards (our core values) in order to preserve the strength of that commitment. As a wing, our mission is focused on providing combat airlift to two combatant commanders and operating USAFE’s premier installation, thus enabling and assuring key capabilities and services. Each of our units contributes to this effort. ARIs directly impede this hard work and commitment to mission success because they create additional workloads, such

as investigations and disciplinary proceedings, which distract us from our mission-focus. Furthermore, ARIs often result in harmful and costly consequences ― sometimes including the death of our Airmen. We must take an active role with our Airmen when discussing ARIs and mission impact and should not shy away from pointing out the negative impact of alcohol abuse on mission accomplishment. This is especially true as we face budgetary pressures as a military and a nation. We can ill afford the time, talent and productivity that are lost due to ARIs and their inevitable long chain of consequences. Perhaps one way to attack the problem is to consider the following questions in a more personal way: Who depends on me? What is my role in defending America’s freedoms? Does my alcohol use

An honest assessment of a situation involving alcohol will always help you make the right decisions ― and our mission focus will make all of us better Airmen. Our actions should continually support the mission, not distract or deter from it. Our nation depends on our commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution, which starts at the individual level. Our nation and fellow patriots depend on that dedication. As General Hyde has said, “ARIs are not inevitable. We can eliminate or significantly reduce them through mission focus, taking care of each other and personal accountability.” No ARIs…no excuses…drink responsibly!

USAFE chiefs’ spouses visit Ramstein by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The spouses of new chiefs across U.S. Air Forces in Europe visited the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility and Health and Wellness Center as part of their three-day orientation. “Spouses came from all over USAFE in order to learn how they can contribute as senior enlisted leaders,” said Mary Williamson, wife of USAFE Command Chief Master Sgt. David Williamson. “We want them to know that being a spouse is an important part of the leadership team, so we bring them in to explain their role.” As part of the learning experience, the chiefs’ spouses were oriented about organizations and programs the Air Force offers. With this knowledge, Williamson said, the spouses should

be able to better fulfill their roles as senior mentors to other Air Force and Department of Defense spouses. The trip provided a chance for these spouses to spread their newfound knowledge to those who may not be familiar with these organizations. After the orientation, spouses were encouraged to find out how these agencies operate at their base. An example of what spouses learned about an organization they might not have known about before is when they were briefed on the CASF, a half-way point for wounded warriors who are receiving treatment before their return back to the states. “Most aren’t familiar with our mission,” said Senior Master Sgt. Anthony James, CASF superintendent. “Tours like this give us a great opportunity to explain what we do.” “We have this orientation annually for the active-duty member, but this

Patrick Niestzche, the officer in charge of the RGRC, and a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “We’ve checked all the blocks and we made sure we’re prepared to receive all our Army primary change of station Soldiers and family members.” “This is our pre-execution of making sure that all the liaisons understand their roles and what they have to do when we’re in the middle of processing,” Niestzche added. During the walk through rehearsal several Army and Air Force Patriot Express and PAX terminal representatives were on hand and received a tour of the facility and a brief description of how things would work. Included in that group were USAREUR’s assistant deputy chief of staff for personnel, Col. Theodore Fox, the director of the 1st HRSC, Col. Dan Finley, and the commander of the 721st Air Mobility Operations Group, Col. Nicholas Myers. Previously, the 1st HRSC processed about 19,000 Soldiers and family members yearly at the Frankfurt International Airport.

specialized capabilities to safely offload commercial and military aircraft so the TSC was able to load the equipment onto rail and road transportation. “Each person on the team is utilized in a cross-functional manner to accomplish the aerial port mission and cargo yard operations,” said Lt. Col. Rhett Champagne, 435th Air Mobility Squadron commander. “This is the core mission for the CRG and what

cessing approximately 25,000 Soldiers yearly through the new gateway. “We’re just going to shift the mission from Frankfurt down to Ramstein,” Niestzche said. “One of the benefits of being here in Ramstein is that we’re actually going to be able to pull a manifest and have predictability of who’s arriving at this terminal so we can have bus transportation available, have all the systems and resources in place to receive the personnel, and better process them and get them out to their military communities.” Niestzche said the RGRC’s goal is to Photo by Staff Sgt.

makes it an effective force multiplier.” Vehicles and equipment were loaded and returned on a variety of 22 cargo aircraft. The load equated to more than 2,023 car trains. “This is about fiscal efficiency and cost savings,” Champagne said. “Multimodal operations seek out the most cost effective transportation solutions from getting our equipment from downrange, while maintaining flexibility, to dealing with

challenges to our lines of communication.” The operation also validated the Joint Task Force European Port Opening, an acknowledgement that European Command has the capability and resources assigned to its theater that can meet low to medium port opening capabilities before needing to reach out to Transportation Command. “Ultimately, the undertaking highlighted the command and control of port

operations while enabling the 21st TSC and 435th CRG to work together,” Champagne said. Shapland explained the benefit of joint-service operations when it comes to mission focus. “The teamwork between the 435th CRG and the 21st TSC demonstrates a critical air-land capability seamlessly moving personnel and equipment between various modes of transportation in a safe and expeditious manner,” he said.

Are you fostering tooth 21st TSC-Italy’s support limitless decay in your children Story and photo by Capt. Greg Jones 21st TSC Public Affairs

A

ccording to a recent survey by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the recognized leader in children’s oral health, many parents and caregivers are unaware that routine practices, such as providing healthy snacks and sharing utensils, may increase children’s risk of developing cavities. The national survey, conducted by Harris Interactive and commissioned by the AAPD, found that 96 percent of U.S. adults with children under 12 years old in their household thought a cracker was better for children’s teeth than a piece of caramel. The truth is that starches can lead to cavities just as sugars can, and caramels dissolve more quickly from the mouth than crackers. Therefore, the longer children’s teeth are exposed to the food, the more damage is done. A cracker may be more figure-friendly, but it is not a teeth-friendly snack. Additionally, the survey shows that only 13 percent of adults with children under 12 years old in their household know that they can spread cavities to children, similar to a cold or the flu. Children are not born with cavity-causing bacteria in their mouths, and babies and small children can actually “catch” bacteria from their caregivers. Sharing utensils or letting children put their fingers in your mouth can transfer bacteria in the saliva, which can cause tooth decay. “Although most parents and caregivers don’t believe they are putting their children at risk for tooth decay, many parents and caregivers unfortunately ― and unintentionally ― are doing so,” said AAPD President Dr. Beverly Largent. “Cavities and other dental health issues affect not only your child’s ability to speak and maintain a healthy self-image, but they can contribute to systemic health issues later in life, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. This is why we are reminding parents and caregivers about simple things they can do to protect their child’s teeth.” Proper oral care is important in ensuring children enjoy overall good health, so this February during National Children’s Dental Health Month, the AAPD and the 86th Dental Squadron encourage all caregivers to support proper oral care at home and to make sure all children see a dentist by their first birthday.

LIVORNO AND VICENZA, Italy ― Those who believe that “life moves a little slower south of the Alps” might change their minds if they spend a few minutes with the Soldiers and civilians of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command based in Italy. Informally known collectively as 21st TSC-Italy, Soldiers from the 3rd Battalion, 405th Army Field Support Brigade, two platoons of the 18th Military Police Brigade, the 16th Sustainment Brigade’s 39th Movement Control Battalion, the 1st Human Resources Center and other small elements of the 21st TSC provide a variety of services to joint, multinational and even inter-agency efforts. From basic community law enforcement, to depot level repair and re-use efforts, to complex full spectrum movement control and tracking, the variety of capabilities employed by 21st TSC-I run the gamut of sustainment services. The 3rd Bn. 405th AFSB, located in Livorno, Italy, provides a variety of direct support focusing primarily on vehicle, supplies and equipment storage, repairs and reuse. Under the Left Behind Equipment program, the battalion stores and maintains vehicles and equipment assigned to deployed units who have opted not to take the equipment with them on deployment based on their mission downrange. The battalion also regularly assists with pre-positioned stocks of supplies, and more importantly, entire sets of deployable equipment. Under these programs, the battalion provides much more than just a place to store the equipment. They must keep all of the equipment in full operational condition all of the time as it may be called into operation at any moment with little or no warning. The battalion has space and facilities to also support other prepositioning, and transfer operations. Another unique function of this battalion is its direct support to Humanitarian Assistance operations. Whether simply providing warehouse space for HA organizations or helping with the acquisition and transport of HA supplies, the battalion has assisted with a number of recent HA missions, including efforts in Georgia, Turkey and Ukraine, as well as elsewhere in the 21st TSC area of responsibility. The battalion is headquartered by a small core of active duty service members and U.S. civilian employees who oversee the operations of a primarily local national workforce of experts in mechanical repairs, transport operations and all of the many other functions required to keep the battalion running day to day. The ultimate hallmark of the battalion is its flexibility and willingness to support any variety of requests within its capabilities. “Give us the mission, and we’ll analyze it and see if we can do it for you,” said Lt. Col. Rick Pierce, the battalion’s commander. “If we can do it, we will do it right!”

Moreno Montagni, a mechanic with the 3rd Battalion, 405th Army Field Support Brigade, inspects a part prior to installation at one of the battalion’s maintenance facilities in Livorno, Italy, Jan. 23.

The 39th Movement Control Battalion, in Vicenza, Italy, provides movement control services to the U.S. Army in Africa, and a wide variety of other organizations operating within their area. They manage, control and track movements of cargo through the area of operations using the latest technology to ensure shipments get where they need to, on time. The Soldiers of the 39th MCT serve not only as the managers of the movement of cargo, but also as a liaison of sorts between the organization whose cargo is being moved, and the various agencies doing the transport. The 1st HRSC runs the U.S. Army in Europe gateway at the airport in Venice, Italy, by receiving, processing and assisting all Soldiers arriving there on permanent change of station orders. The Soldiers of the 1st HRSC ensure that when Soldiers arrive they are met immediately by military personnel who are there to assist through every step of the process. Much more than just a ride from the airport, these Soldiers are the problem solvers for families facing the challenges of a trans-Atlantic PCS. The 18th MP Bde. has two platoons serving 21st TSC-Italy, one each in Vicenza and Livorno. They provide community law enforcement services to the U.S. Army communities in those areas. Because of the significant geographical separation from other large concentrations of U.S. facilities, the force protection and community law enforcement tasks these two platoons perform are of vital importance to these small communities, according to the 21st TSC commanding general, Brig. Gen. Aundre Piggee, who recently visited the 21st TSC-Italy units. Piggee also commented on the close sense of family in these two small communities south of the Alps, who perform such a vital function for so many in Europe. “This appears to be a very tight-knit community,” Piggee said. “I think that’s one of the reasons (they) are able to do so much down here.”

Chief’s Corner

Uniforms optional? Here I am, in my PT uniform at a fun run with Airmen from multiple wings. As I’m running, I notice a person with the waist band of their running shorts turned over. I ask, in a non-threatening manner, if they know and the answer is simply “yes.” I wait for them to correct this, but they don’t. I’m left, still running, not knowing whether the person doesn’t know they can’t do this or that they don’t care. Then, a few minutes later, I come across the same thing and ask the same question. However, this time the person answers “yes” and immediately makes the correction. I’m sometimes amazed and somehow disappointed at how often I have to stop and make a uniform correction. My aim is always to get the message across without someone throwing up their defenses because of the “Who is this person to enforce a uniform standard” mindset. We’re all busy with much on our minds and we can forget to check ourselves. So it is OK to remind people. What I don’t expect, or understand, is seeing a person whose uniform needs correction in a crowd of higher-ranking people who either don’t see or don’t care to correct

the issue. Despite efforts not to put someone on the defensive, I still get occasional push back. One day, I politely remarked to a technical sergeant that his belt was on backward. The reply: that’s how he was taught by his MTI. I highly doubted this, but I could see I wouldn’t get anywhere. So I made note of their name, went back to my office and sent the information I copied and pasted straight out of the AFI. I often ask Airmen about making uniform corrections. More often than not, they say they are afraid to. Why is that? Is it because they question whether they know what is correct and don’t want to make a mistake? Or, more pointedly, are they afraid of the response they may get? First, be familiar with the AFI. If unsure, you can at least check when the chance arises so you’ll know for sure the next time. Or, you could say, “I am not absolutely certain, but I believe the waist band of your running shorts shouldn’t be turned over.” Second, Airmen should be encouraged and everyone should accept corrections graciously. People may call me hard core or over the top. However, consider this: The AFI reflects a simple standard to which everyone is asked to adhere. It’s there in the AFI for all to read.

The bottom line is it shouldn’t be about enforcing uniform standards, but rather about pride in one’s self and the Air Force and the desire to represent both in the best image. So, if you ever get the opportunity to have someone come up and help you by pointing out something wrong with your uniform, thank them. Mutual goodwill will spread and we’ll all realize that our Air Force uniform standards are not optional. (by Chief Master Sgt. Andrea Gates)

Ergonomics program focuses on worker safety and comfort by Chanel S. Weaver U.S. Army Public Health Command Whether it’s staying in a marriage, living in the same community or raising a child, when people stick with something year after year, they demonstrate they are in it for the long haul. They learn to take the good with the bad. That’s why David Alberth, a radiation safety expert at the U.S. Army Public Health Command, kept working for the Army for nearly 40 years. Although his office chair was uncomfortable, his computer screen was getting harder to see, and the space in his office was getting increasingly narrower, he hung in there because that’s what he felt devoted employees do. “I knew the work I was doing to keep our military safe from the harmful effects of radiation was important,” said Alberth, a senior health physicist. “I enjoy using my institutional memory and knowledge of historical examples to solve current problems.” Alberth kept files in his office that covered more than 20 years of history. He was so efficient at what he did that employees at the USAPHC, as well as Army and DOD scientists, often consulted him on radiation issues. He was recognized as a master consultant on radiation issues a few years ago.

But recently, his co-workers and supervisor began to notice a problem. “David had a huge collection of files, and his office space was so constrained that he could barely move around,” said Lt. Col. Constance Rosser, a program manager in the USAPHC health physics program. Mobility was getting more difficult for Alberth, who suffers from arthritis and other orthopedic problems from his activities as a long–distance runner in earlier years. With a few phone calls, even more paperwork and a lot of heavy lifting, Alberth’s co-workers voluntarily reconfigured his office. The office’s reconfiguration and design was completed under the professional direction of USAPHC’s Ergonomics Program members. Today, Alberth’s new workspace boasts state-of-the-art amenities including an adjustable keyboard, an oversized monitor, a workstation that allows him to stand at intervals and, of course, plenty of space for him to maneuver around effortlessly. John Pentikis, an ergonomist, said the program is in high demand for office reconfigurations from customers throughout the federal workforce, completing an average of two a month. “The teams identify risk factors in an office and come up with solutions to

mitigate those factors,” said Pentikis. The make-up of these office reconfiguration teams varies, but they often include ergonomists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and engineers. A key goal of the program is injury reduction. “We want to prevent injuries to our workforce,” Pentikis said. “Research shows that virtually all musculoskeletal injuries can be prevented.” The goal is also to ensure employees can perform their jobs safely and comfortably, said Col. Myrna Callison, Ergonomics Program manager. The ergonomics team frequently travels both stateside and abroad to assess employee working conditions and offer interventions to decrease injury risk. “We frequently perform ergonomic studies on offices, warehouses, hospitals and other places where federal employees work,” Callison said. Recently, the Ergonomics Program was instrumental in the development of a safe-patient handling program that uses ergonomically sound equipment to help hospital staff lift patients in ways that do not cause injuries. The program is being tested in the Madigan (Joint Base Lewis–McChord, Wash.) health care system with an ultimate goal of being implemented in various Army medical treatment facilities.

Alberth said he is grateful that the USAPHC ergonomics team and his co-workers took action to preserve his safety and health. “The renovation made me realize that there are many USAPHC personnel who care about my welfare,” Alberth said. Pentikis said it was a pleasure to serve. “I like what I do because I have an opportunity to interact with other people … and help them work in an environment that suits them,” Pentikis said. “It doesn’t benefit an agency to have an employee who is uncomfortable and at risk of injury.” Rosser agreed. “Mr. Alberth has spent the majority of his career assessing and mitigating the health risks of radiation to secure the safety of our military personnel in both deployed and garrison locations,” Rosser said. “The steps we took to ensure he could perform his job easier were just a token of our gratitude for his service. It is our duty to ensure that all employees have reasonable accommodations.” For details on the program, visit the U.S. Army Public Health Command online at http://phc.amedd.army.mil/ topics/workplacehealth/ergo/Pages/ default.aspx.

Orientation tours continue The Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center recently started its downtown K-town orientation tours again Jan. 19. The orientation includes a walking tour led by a professionally trained United Service Organizations tour guide, a stop at the German-American Community Office, an opportunity to shop at local stores and the chance to experience lunch at an authentic German restaurant. (Costs about €10 to €12). The Ho family, a family of six, was one of the families on the Jan. 19 tour. The family said they enjoyed their tour ― especially their lunch. “We enjoyed seeing what types of items to expect or find on the local economy when shopping,” said Wichard Ho. Jennifer Ho said it was great getting to visit the GACO. “I will be asking the GACO employees for help a lot,” she said. The orientation tours will continue for an indefinite period of time on a rotating schedule alternating between Tuesdays and Thursdays. For more information and specific dates, call the A&FRC at 480-5900.

were instrumental in conducting missions to Libya in support of Operation Odyssey Dawn and Unified Protector. They helped the 37th Airlift Squadron ensure more than 1,000 tons of cargo, and 1,000 personnel were transported without any major delays. They also delivered humanitarian relief to more than 800 Egyptian refugees during this operation. Additionally, they played a major role in ensuring their aircraft were mission capable, allowing operations to meet strict slot times in support of humanitarian relief to the earthquakes in Turkey and wildfires in Israel. Finally, these two NCOs are vital to teaching our future FCCs by relaying their experiences and assisting with on-the-job training. Our squadron doesn’t support just C-130J missions. We have eight FCCs who support distinguished visitors on C-40B missions. They fly with DVs around the world and are hand selected to accomplish this demanding, highly visible mission. They are sent to school for four months to learn how to maintain the military version of the Boeing 737700 and it takes a total of 10 months to get fully certified. Staff Sgt. Jordan Seylee has been flying with the C-40 since 2011 and was a distinguished graduate from the Boeing engineers course. He has flown more than 18 missions so far. He has flown to such locations as Afghanistan and Africa while transporting such dignitaries as COMISAF, ambassadors, SACEUR and other high-level dignitaries. We all have outstanding Airmen and demand a lot from them as we continue to draw down our force. We put a lot of trust and faith into these incredible maintainers. As I stated, they are relied upon heavily to do a job that may take two or more maintainers to do at home station. They will fly on a sortie and be expected to recover and turn the aircraft for the next sortie before they are done with their duty day. This select bunch of Airmen must embrace and live our core values to ensure we generate safe, reliable aircraft every day. Thanks for all you do!

21st TSC wins Lean Six Sigma awards by Capt. Greg Jones 21st TSC Public Affairs The 21st Theater Sustainment Command and a Project Team from the 266th Financial Management Center won the Department of the Army’s Lean Six Sigma Organizational Deployment award and a Project Team award. Recovering $621,548 in incorrect housing payments, and reducing man hours worth about $117,849 as well as other related cost avoidance, a 21st Theater Sustainment Command Green Belt Project Team from the 266th FMC completed a project that produced total financial benefits of $905,235 in Fiscal Year 2011, for the U.S. government, with an estimated total cost savings and cost avoidance of $4.6 million through fiscal year 2017. They accomplished this by re-vamping the way housing allowances are reviewed when service members’ entitlements change based on permanent change of station or other factors. This financial benefit includes both the money calculated to be saved through more efficient operations, and actual funds recovered from previous incorrect payments. The project focused on service members who were incorrectly receiving basic allowance for housing while also receiving overseas housing allowance or other entitlements they were not supposed to be receiving. The team came upon a few outstanding cases, and from there developed a system to review these entitlements more accurately when they change, then to train finance personnel in the appropriate entitlements and to

Piggee, commanding general of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, poses with Scott Ferge (left), the project team leader, and other team members from the 266th Financial Management Center Jan. 26 on Panzer Kaserne in Kaiserslautern. The team won a Department of the Army Lean Six Sigma excellence award for its project that eliminated erroneous payments of Basic Allowance for Housing, producing a $905,235 total financial benefit in 2011, and will produce estimated financial benefits of more than $3.5 million over the next six fiscal years.

recover incorrect payments. “We knew there was a problem with people collecting BAH that they shouldn’t be, but we didn’t know how to sort them out,” said project lead Scott Ferge. “At first we searched for the high BAH areas like New York, but that returned so many results. Then, I saw one where the person was collecting BAH for New York, but Cost of Living Allowance for Germany. It was an instant epiphany.” Using this and other unusual situations that are usually indicative of incorrect payment of entitlements, the team developed a system to screen for incorrect payment situations. In some cases, it appeared that it was an inten-

tional fraud, and the case was passed to the Criminal Investigation Division for investigation. Not satisfied to simply recover those funds, the team also developed a training plan to retrain finance personnel in proper entitlement processing. “It’s really simple,” Ferge said. “We can see who processed the entitlements, and we can provide that person with some extra training on the subject.” In addition to the award for the team project, the 21st TSC also won an award for organizational deployment, which takes a broad overall look at how the organization implements its Lean Six Sigma program.

US, Polish weathermen synch forecasting skills by Michael Beaton Joint Multinational Training Command GRAFENWÖHR, Germany ― It’s been 67 years since Air Force Capt. J.M. Stagg, a military meteorologist, readied himself to deliver his most difficult weather forecast. As he walked down the hall to the London office of the commanding general to present the forecast for the next two days, he steadied his nerves and prepared for the worst. He would have to tell the general that the operation, planned for the next day, June 5, would have to be postponed at least a day, perhaps weeks. Under his arm was a folder with a second forecast that said there was a chance that the weather would break on June 6, but the present forecast made the general’s plans extremely risky. As he arrived at the general’s door he prepared himself to deliver a frank “no-go” to the general’s plans. It was June 4, 1944, one day before the planned invasion of Europe known as Project Overlord, or D-Day.

Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, on Stagg’s advice, decided to hold off the invasion. Eisenhower knew Stagg was no “yes-man” and respected his ability to predict the weather. Two days later, Stagg’s forecast was vindicated. Stagg had forecast better weather for a short time on the 6th, and this was good enough for Eisenhower to send over 500 warships and 3,000 landing craft toward the French beaches at Normandy. Today, at the U.S. Army’s Joint Multinational Training Command in Grafenwöhr, Germany, Air Force weathermen from NATO and partner countries train together using more sophisticated technologies than Stagg, but their mission has remained the same: to assemble the right weather information quickly and accurately so that military planners and leaders can make the right decisions during military operations. “Weather forecasters depend on technology of course, See FORECAST, Page 17

Help protect your child from pneumococcal disease; talk to your pediatrician about PCV13 What is pneumococcal disease? Infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria can make children very sick. It causes blood infections, pneumonia and meningitis, mostly in young children. Meningitis is an infection of the covering of the brain. Although pneumococcal meningitis is relatively rare (less than one case per 100,000 people each year), it is fatal in about one of 10 cases in children. Pneumococcal meningitis can also lead to other health problems, including deafness and brain damage. Children younger than 2 years of age are at higher risk for serious disease than older children. Pneumococcal bacteria are spread from person to person through close contact. Pneumococcal infections may be hard to treat because some strains of the bacteria have become resistant to the drugs that are used to treat them. This makes prevention of pneumococcal infections through vaccination even more important. What is the new PCV13 vaccine? There are more than 90 types of pneumococcal bacteria.

The new pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) protects against 13 of them. These bacteria types are responsible for most severe pneumococcal infections among children. PCV13 replaces a previous conjugate vaccine (PCV7), which protected against seven pneumococcal types and has been in use since 2000. Who should get PCV13, and when? PCV13 is given to infants and toddlers, to protect them when they are at greatest risk for serious diseases caused by pneumococcal bacteria. Your child may be eligible to complete their immunization series with PCV13 or may be eligible for a booster shot with PCV13. The PCV13 vaccine is now available at the Ramstein Clinic. For more information, call the Ramstein pediatric clinic at 479-2273 or visit www.cdc. gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/pneumo/vac-PCV13hcp-faqs.htm. (Courtesy of 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron)

Too short, not Stirling by Dr. Marshall Michel 52nd Fighter Wing historian

W

hen Britain’s Royal Air Force became the first independent air force in 1918, its raison d’être was long range strategic bombing. However, after World War I and associated budget cuts, the idea languished and it was not until 1936 that the British Air Ministry issued Specification B12/36 calling for a long range, four engine strategic bomber that could carry a bomb load of 14,000 pounds. Curiously, it also specified that the wingspan should not exceed 100 feet so the aircraft could fit inside current RAF hangars, although the most common type of RAF hangar could open to more than 125 feet. Britain’s pre-eminent flying boat builder, Short Brothers, submitted a design with a wing based on its four engine Sunderland flying boat, but the wing had to be dramatically shortened, thickened and reshaped to meet the 100 foot limitation. Short flew a half-scale prototype and found the wing shape made the take-off run too long. To get the proper wing angle for a reasonable take off run, the new aircraft ― now named the “Stirling” ― was given very long, stalky landing gear. Testing proved to be an adventure. On its first flight on May 14, 1939, the landing gear collapsed on landing ― a flaw that was to haunt the Stirling for its whole career. The second prototype suffered a major engine failure a few months later but recovered safely.

A Stirling and its crew are seen here. Note the long landing gear and short wings.

Heavy bombing of the Short plant during the Battle of Britain slowed production, and it was not until February 1941 that the Stirlings flew their first operational mission. It quickly became a major weapon for RAF Bomber Command, but as the war progressed, more problems began to crop up. While the Stirling could carry 14,000 pounds of bombs, its 40-foot-long bomb bay had two structural dividers running down the middle. This meant the largest bomb it could carry was only 2,000 pounds, while the RAF was beginning to use the 4,000 pound “cookie” bomb and plans for even larger bombs were in the works. A far more serious problem was the thick, short wing, which limited its service ceiling with a full bomb load to about 12,000 feet. This meant Stirlings attacking targets in Italy had to fly through rather than over the Alps. More importantly, on missions over Germany, Stirlings were always the bombers

flying at the lowest altitudes. The Luftwaffe concentrated on the low-flying Stirlings because the heavy German night fighters found it easier to reach them. The Stirling crews also found themselves in the envelope of very efficient light anti-aircraft that could not reach higher flying bombers. In one period of 19 raids, Stirling losses were almost 16 percent as opposed to the losses of the other major RAF bombers ― the Lancaster (5.6 percent) and Halifax (8.9 percent). Still, many Stirling crews liked their aircraft. The tail turret, which covered the most vulnerable area, was very efficient and the Stirling’s thick wing made it very maneuverable. Beginning at the end of 1943, Stirlings were replaced in Bomber Command’s main force, but a new role waited. The RAF needed a powerful aircraft to tow heavy gliders for D-Day and Stirlings, without nose and dorsal turrets, became mainstays for towing gliders during the Battle of Normandy. They also played a major part of Operation Fortitude, the highly successful D-Day deception operations, largely by laying long corridors of chaff that looked like a separate invasion fleet. While the Stirling was the only British World War II bomber designed from the start with four engines, it will be remembered mainly for the heavy losses it suffered as the result of complying with the short sighted RAF wing span requirement.

Parking gets more expensive

T

he City of Kaiserslautern raised its parking fees in January. All parking meters in the center of town have been reset, and new traffic signs displaying the new parking times have been put up. Stickers have been placed on the ticket machines to let customers know about the tariff changes. In the main area (white parking tickets), every 25 minutes cost 50 cents. The parking time here is limited to 2 hours and 55 minutes. In the outer areas (blue parking tickets), parking costs 50 cents per 50 minutes. Daily tickets are available and cost €3.

This also applies to six new parking meters being installed on the Messeplatz fairgrounds. Parking fees have to be paid Mondays to Fridays, but the fee times got extended by one hour. Now, motorists have to pay parking fees from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Saturdays, parking downtown will still be free, except for commercial parking garages, which are not run by the City of Kaiserslautern. Parking passes that were handed out to customers in the stores and authorized half an hour of free parking are no longer valid. (Courtesy of the City of Kaiserslautern)

New vignettes keep you from paying high fines

M

otorists traveling to Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia or the Czech Republic should have a valid vignette for 2012, said officials from the German automobile club ADAC. Anybody found with an old vignette risks having to pay a high fine. The vehicle vignette for Austria for one year costs €77.80. The fee for a two-month vignette is €23.40 and a 10-day vignette costs €8. Motorcyclists have to pay €31 for the one-year vignette, €11.70 for two months and €4.60 for the 10-day vignette. Motorcyclists must place the vignette on a part of the motorcycle where it is visible but difficult to be removed. In vehicles, the vignette must be placed on the inside of the windshield, for example on the left edge or behind the driving mirror. Motorists driving on the autobahn or a toll road without a vignette should expect to pay a fine of up to €3,000. Only those who get caught without a vignette and are willing to pay an alternative toll of €120 remain exempt from punishment. Motorists and motorcyclists who want to use the Swiss autobahns or speedways pay €33 for the oneyear vignette. Without a valid vignette motorists have to pay a €170 fine. The vignette price in Slovenia did not change. For vehicles up to 3.5 tons, prices are €95 for one year, €30 for one month and €15 for seven days. The Czech Republic’s annual vignette for vehicles up to 3.5 tons costs €60.50, the vignette for one month costs €18 and the 10-day vignette costs €12.50. Vignettes for Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic are available in every ADAC office or on the Internet at www.adac/shop.de. (Courtesy of ADAC)

FORECAST, from Page 9 but common sense observation is still trump when making a forecast,” said JMTC’s chief weatherman, Air Force Maj. Richard Earnest. “In short, our job is to make sure the right information gets to the right people at the right time. Weather affects everyone, and when applied to a military mission, it can impact the smallest tactical to the broadest strategic decisions that affect military training and operations.” Earnest is with Detachment 2, 7th Weather Squadron, located at the Grafenwöhr Army Air Field. The detachment provides liaison support to JMTC, the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels, the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, 172nd Seperate Infantry Brigade and C. Company, 5/158 Aviation Regiment. As a secondary role, Detachment 2 hosts exercise Cadre Focus twice a year, a week-long training event at JMTC that prepares U.S. Air Forces in Europe weather forecasters and their multinational partners for downrange deployments in support of U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and joint operations. Earnest said forecasting today relies on two methods. First, the automated procedures for processing digitized observations to give a snapshot of the state of the weather. It is used to create a computer model of the atmosphere that projects the information forward in time to help form the forecast. The second method is the professional judgment of a well-trained Air Force weatherman who is working onsite. The two processes are assimilated to produce a balanced, accurate picture of how the weather has evolved. Knitting the procedures together often enough at regular intervals builds up a succession of analyses that a weatherman uses to forecast a weather scenario at a given time in the future. Setting up and activating the equipment alongside the U.S. Airmen at the exercise were two Polish officers, Capt. Sebastian Bernatowicz and Capt. Marek Wasilewski, both weather forecasters in the Polish Army Hydro-meteorological

Service. Although their uniforms and language are different from the U.S. Airmen, there really doesn’t seem to be any hesitation or difficulty in working together or calibrating the equipment. “Of course we work together seriously, even though we come from different services and far apart countries,” said Bernatowicz. “We are all professional weathermen, we are thinking as weathermen. Our job puts us up against the elements of nature. It involves science of course, but predictions based sometimes on intuition and personal experience show how patterns of weather develop, too.” As he speaks Bernatowicz and his colleagues are setting up the TMQ-53, a tactical meteorological observing system. The system is a 14-foot tall, relatively light-weight deployable instrument with multiple sensors that collects weather data. The TMQ-53, which monitors cloud height and density, humidity, precipitation, temperature, and even such acute atmospheric details such as vertical visibility, surface visibility, present weather, precipitation type and lightning out to 50 nautical miles. When the Airmen finish assembling and calibrating the TMQ-53, it will be linked to a computer supported software interface that processes the data. The data is then used to develop a local weather forecast for those who need it, said Earnest. For 7th Weather Squadron forecasters, the primary mission is to provide mission execution and planning forecasts for all of the Army’s missions ― both air and ground missions. In this capacity, the forecaster provides pilots with the data they require regarding weather conditions for takeoff, landing and every point in between throughout the U.S. Army Europe area of responsibility, Earnest said. “The Air Force also provides all the weather support for the Army, so Airmen are embedded in all major Army units. We make sure deployed units have constant, up-to-date information at their fingertips to support warfighters,” Earnest said.

Beware: There are thieves amongst us by Airman 1st Class Donovan S. Garrett 569th USFPS Police Services

O

ne … two … thieves are coming for you! Three … four… better lock your doors! While this is a twist on the old song, it rings true to the state we are in currently. Winter months bring shorter days and longer nights, which increases a thief’s ideal working environment ― darkness. There has been a 66 percent increase in house break-ins and a 70 percent increase in vehicle break-ins since Dec. 1. To prevent yourself from becoming a victim of these crimes, follow these basic security tips for your home and automobile. Whether you live on or off base, your home should comply with basic security standards. All external doors and ground floor windows must have proper locks suitable for the type of frame. Any

other window or point of entry that is accessible, such as those above flat roofs, should also be secure. For ventilation purposes, open your windows while you are home and properly secure them prior to your departure. While leaving rollladens down on your windows provide extra security, they can also tell a potential thief that you’re not home. Lighting is very important both inside your house and out. It is essential that you give the impression that someone is home. Use light timers for table lamps for inside and sensor lighting for your exterior. Ensure exterior doors and ground floor windows are properly illuminated from the outside. A thief will not try to break into your house with a spotlight shining on them. Most thieves break into vehicles to steal the contents left by the owner, not the vehicle itself. You can simply avoid this by removing all valuables from

RESILIENCY, from Page 1 At the Southside Fitness Center Annex, members representing the mental domain gave a unique perspective to Airmen who came to visit. The “Be the Bigger Person” exercise encouraged Airmen to perform a series of shuttle runs while wearing a mock pregnancy belly. The exercise aimed at teaching Airmen a lesson in empathy. Also, the “Drunk Buster” exercise was directed by representatives of Alcohol and Drug Education Program and Demand Reduction Program.

your vehicle when it’s parked. If you choose to store your laptop, iPod, GPS, wallet and rent money in your vehicle, chances are it will be stolen. Also, the most popular items taken from vehicles over the past two months have been purses and backpacks. Another simple tip is to always keep your car locked and leave valuables at home. The vast majority of vehicle break-ins investigated reveal there were no signs of forced entry, which means the vehicle was unlocked. Bottom line: Secure your home, vehicle and valuables. Thieves are lurking around trying to find the next place to “shop.” To report a theft, call the Security Forces Base Defense Operations Center at 0631-5366060/7070 or 1-1-2.

Airman 1st Class Michelle Camara-Caro said the purpose of the event was to educate Airmen how alcohol severely affects their physical abilities. Camara-Caro pointed out an Airman attempting to drive a peddle-kart while wearing “drunk” goggles as she described her favorite part of the day. “Watching everyone attempt to drive safely while intoxicated was the best,” she said. “We want Airmen to have fun at this exercise, but ultimately the message is what’s most important.” The third exercise, called “Performance Enhancement,” taught Airmen the importance of

the four domains of resiliency in relation to their performance. The exercise consisted of a simulated combat situation requiring participants to perform various physical exercises while wearing body armor weighing 30 to 40 pounds and engage in tasks requiring mental focus and fine motor skills. “The exercise helps Airmen understand the effects of stress on performance and offers them an opportunity through experience to learn the importance of the four domains in staying fit to fight,” said Staff Sgt. Anthony Dasilva, 86th MDOS. Airmen were educated on proper nutrition, fitness and spirituality and taught mental strategies, such as controlled breathing, imagery and self talk to improve their performance. Senior Airmen Jacob Hastings and Scott Stevens, as well as Airman 1st Class Zachary Torres, contributed to testing Airmen by mentally distracting participants. “I like seeing everyone have fun,” Jacobs said as he discussed his highlight for the day. “This is one of the few times you see people put on body armor and do burpees.” Lt. Col. Alicia Matteson, officer in charge of the 86th MDOS Mental Health Clinic, and Lt. Col. Michael Slack, 86th MDOS Mental Health Flight commander, expressed the value of Resiliency Day as a whole. “To me, the most important aspect from today is the opportunity to build our connections with our co-workers, our family and the whole community,” Matteson said. “I realized how important the social domain is today because it cuts across all other domains,” Slack said. “The social aspect helps keep you committed to the other aspects of resiliency.” For more information on the Ramstein Resiliency Team, events and tools, go to the Ramstein Resiliency Web page at www.ramstein.af.mil/ resiliency/index.asp.

One For The Money (PG-13) ― A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum’s got plenty of attitude, even if she’s been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company as a recovery agent. True, she doesn’t even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn’t stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny’s biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli. Yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school. Starring Katherine Heigl and John Leguizamo John Leguizamo. The Muppets (PG) ― On vacation in

Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary and Mary from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage the greatest Muppet telethon ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. Starring Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
