Fuels Airmen break record for POTUS Story and photo by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Airmen assigned to the 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels management flight refueled Air Force One and accompanying aircraft Jan. 24 and 27 on Ramstein, breaking the previous record set here in April 2014 for refueling the U.S. leader’s aircraft. President Barack Obama and other U.S. leaders stopped at Ramstein on their way to India. Between Air Force One and its accompanying aircraft, the fuels management team pumped more than 900,000 pounds of fuel in record time. “It was stressful, but we had excellent management out there,” said Airman 1st Class Anthony Williams, 86th LRS fuels journeyman. “At any point, I knew where I was going to be and where to go, and that allowed us See FUEL, Page 2

Tip of the Week


Ramstein Airmen and Army Soldiers from Rhine Ordnance Barracks came together Jan. 19 on Ramstein to take part in a joint communications exercise and establish bilateral communications across the two services’ networks. Code-named Juniper Thunder, the exercise was aimed to help improve the interoperability between Air Force and Army combat communications

systems. The 17-day effort also tested how well the two services could work together to support the European Command’s No. 1 priority in Air Ballistic Missile Defense. Working inside the tents were Airmen from the 1st Combat Communications Squadron, 1st Air and Space Communications Operations Squadron, and U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa, and Soldiers from the 10th Army Air Missile Defense Command.

Learn to overcome failures


by Maj. Eric Tucker 509th Communications Squadron commander WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. — You will fail. The question is, how will you respond? This reminds me of a parable about the carrot, egg and coffee. A senior airman was distraught when he learned he did not make staff sergeant after his first time testing. His staff sergeant supervisor saw a teaching opportunity, and the next day he filled three pots with water and placed each on a stove. After they came to a boil, he placed carrots in the first pot, eggs in the second and ground coffee in the last. After 20 minutes, he fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then he ladled the coffee out into a cup. Turning to the senior airman, the staff sergeant asked, “Tell me, what do you see?” “Carrots, eggs and coffee,” the senior airman replied. Then he asked the senior airman to feel the carrots, which he did, noting they were soft and mushy. The staff sergeant then asked the senior airman to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, the senior airman observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked the senior airman to sip the coffee. He smiled as he tasted the coffee with its rich aroma.

The senior airman said, “Nice, but what does all of this mean?” The staff sergeant laughed and explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity — boiling water — but each reacted differently. “Which are you?” the staff sergeant asked. “Are you a carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity becomes soft and loses strength? Are you the egg that appears not to change but whose heart is hardened? Or, are you the coffee bean that changes the hot water — the very circumstances that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases its fragrance and flavor. If you are like the coffee bean, when things are at their worst, your very attitude will change your environment for the better, making it sweet and palatable.” When you face failure, will you be the carrot, egg or coffee? I offer three suggestions when dealing with failure. First, own up to your failures. Don’t explain failures away. Instead, deal with them head-on. Don’t look around for other people to blame. That happens way too often today. Admit your failures and take responsiblity for them. Being accountable for your failures shows responsibility. Accepting your failure will give you the courage to apologize, if that’s appropriate to the situation. Taking ownership of your failures enables the second step — learning FAIL (First Attempt In Learning). This is how you need to view failures — a lesson on what didn’t work. While learning from your mistakes, don’t expect a miracle

recovery overnight. Take the time you need to learn the appropriate lessons. Don’t short-circuit the process. Bouncing back is good, but you want to bounce back in a healthy way and not force it. Forcing it will only hinder your opportunity for growth. The beautiful thing about failure is it teaches you the resiliency needed to cope with future failures. Also, don’t go in alone. Ask for help if you need it. I like this quote from B.F Skinner: “A failure is not always a mistake; it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” Third, with the wisdom gained from growing through your failure — thrive. Life isn’t about luck. Life is about hard work — hard work that is born from failure. Learning from failure and thriving from the growth you made will help you reach your full potential in life. We never try to fail on purpose. But, at the same time, if you stay so far away from failure, if you don’t ever push yourself to where failure is a possibility, you’re probably not pushing yourself enough. Failure presents opportunities for personal growth. It also teaches you about willpower, persistence, self-discipline and hard work. I encourage people to be empowered, take initiative and move out. Step out of your comfort zone and take a chance. There are very few “one strike and you’re out” failures in the Air Force. Be adventurous, and try something new. If you fail, own up to it, learn from it, change your circumstances and thrive! Don’t be a carrot or an egg.

to execute the mission. The president doesn’t land at every base, but this has definitely been a staple for me, and I am going to cherish it. I have very high standards after working with this team.” Fuels Airmen were determined to break their previous record time set during Obama’s last visit in 2014. The team prepared for two weeks, to ensure all logistics and planning was ready to flawlessly complete the mission. Williams said one of the most

impressive things to witness was the large number of Airmen who worked on this mission who were able to get things done without any safety issues. “Under the high-stress situation, this team performed flawlessly,” said Senior Airman Thomas Valiare, 86th LRS mobile distribution supervisor. “There were no safety mishaps reported. As fuels experts we ensure that there is no spillage or fuel dropped at all.” Senior leadership helped to mentor and motivate their team, Valiare said. “Seeing my senior leadership out

there leading the way gets me pumped up,” Valiare said. “It builds up excitement to do my job to the best of my ability. When the group sees our leaders taking the first step forward, it motivates everyone and shows the camaraderie that we have, which helps us as Airmen get the job done.” Not only do their leaders motivate the fuels Airmen, but they also teach them how to lead from the front. “It definitely helps me grow, because it allows me to look at the big picture and learn how to be an effective leader on such a big mission,” Williams said.

Ramstein’s mission is unlike any other in the Air Force, and with such busy workloads, Airmen are challenged to perform to the best of their abilities. “Hearing the expectations of Ramstein coming from a stateside base, I was told you are going to work,” Valiare said. “The mission here is a beast, but with our team we can conquer anything. We are the best. Valiare said it was an absolute honor to work on Air Force One, but working with his team on a mission that important is one of the most rewarding parts.

CMSAF visits Airmen, stresses importance of USAFE mission by Staff Sgt. Ryan Crane U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Public Affairs


hief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody and his wife, Athena, met with Airmen from bases around U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa during a visit Jan. 25 to 31 to thank them and their families for their service and to discuss the future of USAFE. Cody specifically chose to visit Airmen at eight bases throughout Europe that have a small footprint but provide an important capability to USAFE and its mission partners. “We do have bigger bases in Europe,” Cody said, “but the smaller units have great Airmen performing extremely important missions for our country and partners.” The importance of these missions remains crucial to the effectiveness of USAFE’s “Forward, Ready, Now!” posture, Cody said. “This theater remains as important today as it ever has,” he said. “We have a long standing commitment to our partners here and NATO. We have the smallest Air Force in our history, but we are more globally engaged as a country than ever before. If we are going to accomplish anything, we are going to have to do that with our partners globally.” Because of that commitment, the U.S. Air Force has had to make tough decisions in many regards, which ultimately led to the decision to divest multiple bases in the United Kingdom over the next seven years. The biggest of those bases is RAF Mildenhall, home to nearly 4,000 U.S. Airmen and local civilians. “Everyone loves Mildenhall,” Cody said. “I understand the emotional connection to the base and the relationships with the local community. But at the end of the day, we can do the missions that we need to do out of other locations in a more efficient and effective way.” Cody emphasized that the reasoning behind these decisions was strategically and financially driven. “We don’t have excess Airmen in our Air Force,” Cody said. “We have had a longstanding relationship in this theater; it spans five decades. We continue to place Airmen in strategic places so airpower can be projected globally. It is critical to our national security and the security of our partners.” He also added that the decision will not affect mission capabilities. “When you think about the overall capability in Europe, it’s not going to change in any way. But by doing this consolidation, we are going to save approximately $500 million every year. I think everyone in our Air Force and our partners will agree that given the limited resources, we cannot afford not to do this,” Cody said. As the Air Force goes through changes, Cody said it is important to remain resilient. Airmen are encouraged to adopt and internal-

ize the four pillars of Comprehensive Airman Fitness: physical, mental, social, spiritual. “When you think about programs like RUfit, the real essence is how we are communicating the resources that we have to bolster resiliency within our Air Force community,” he said. Cody said that ultimately it’s about genuinely knowing your Airmen, because they are our most valuable resource. “These pillars are all aspects of every human being’s life, and if you don’t know your people in any of those aspects, you’re not really going to know where they are,” Cody said. “If they are struggling with one of those areas and we are not helping them, there is a great potential for failure. “The basis, however, for all successes in our mission rests with the professional development of our enlisted force,” he continued. “To get an idea of where our enlisted force is headed, all we have to do is look to our history.” Cody said it takes every generation of Airmen to continue to build on the previous generation. “We will be a better force in 10 or 15 years, just like I would tell you we are a better force today than we were 10 to 15 years ago,” he said. “Whether it be innovation, how we professionally develop or how we recognize and document performance, these are all important to becoming a better force. There has always been a commitment to that and if you look at how far we have come, it is a great predictor of how far we will go.” Cody closed by reminding the Airmen of USAFE-AFAFRICA that what they do will have a lasting effect on the mission and the future of the U.S. presence in Europe. “Athena and I couldn’t be more appreciative of you all,” Cody said. “Anytime we have an opportunity to address our Airmen, we want them to hear that directly from us. We are certainly in dynamic times in our military. If you look at the stability globally or the mission changes within your own backyard, that fact is evident. But it’s important to know that our Airmen and their families are our No. 1 priority.”

“Traditionally, 1st CBCS doesn’t interact with our Army brethren in the same manner as we have during this exercise,” said 1st Lt. Francis Gudez, 1st CBCS lead exercise evaluation team member. “It’s a great experience for our Airmen to have this interaction and change our thought process from one of a separate ‘blue and green’ force to a joint ‘purple’ force. In real world operations, we are expected to work jointly and these Juniper Thunder exercises prepare us for that moment.” Made up of 70 military personnel and more than $40 million worth of equipment, Juniper Thunder presented realistic scenarios to help identify complications within the networks used between the partnering services. “Being a part of Juniper Thunder and exercises like it help identify interoperability issues in a controlled environment,” said Army Capt. John Verwiel, 10th AAMDC. “Now, we are working to fix those concerns during the exercise, so we don’t have these issues when we deploy together and fight. “Undergoing a shared experience with our Air Force counterparts will add to the common understanding of the global security climate in which we operate,” Verwiel continued. “Training together now will help foster a more secure setting downrange.” During the exercise, the 3rd Air Force and 17th Expeditionary Air Force commander, Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, as well as director of C4/Cyber, U.S. European Command, Brig. Gen. Welton Chase Jr., visited and spoke with Airmen and Soldiers to better understand what processes can be improved upon. “It is important for us to locate any problems and address it with upper leadership before they occur during a real world mission,” said Airman 1st Class Cyrus Marvin, 1st CBCS network operations technician. “Each unit here, Air Force and Army, provides a significant level of support in a virtually seamless operation, and can only strengthen it by eliminating any imperfections found.” Though Juniper Thunder was scheduled to end Thursday, the Airmen and Soldiers will continue to reinforce their joint capabilities and sustain their role in providing the combatant command the tools necessary to make the right decision, at the right time.

A&FRC teaches money management by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Regardless of rank, age, service or marital status, all Department of Defense employees must manage money; however, effectively managing money can be a daunting task to accomplish. The Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center stands poised to tackle the job in a few ways to help DOD members in all stages of their military career. “There are primarily two classes we teach,” said Kyle Lambert, 86th Force Support Squadron personal financial specialist. “We teach ‘Managing your Money,’ which is a class that encompasses all of our program areas inside finance.” In Managing your Money, service members receive information about setting up a budget, building up savings, reducing debt, setting shortand long-term goals, and investing. Though the financial specialists at the A&FRC can’t tell people where or how to spend their money, they can show individuals the different options available to them. “We are more like financial educators versus financial advisers,” said Chris Lowry, 86th FSS supervisory community readiness consultant. “We educate and empower. We tell you what you need to do get on the right path.” There is one investment option the A&FRC financial specialists emphasize. “We teach a class called ‘Understanding TSP,’” Lambert said. “It teaches about the basics of investing with the Thrift Savings Plan, the government retirement plan.”

The A&FRC plans to get the classes down to one hour to minimize the time impact they have on service members’ jobs. There are other classes the financial specialists teach depending on which stage a service member is in during their career. Other classes include a course at the First Term Airman Center when the newest Airmen arrive to their first duty station. Another program is called “Ditching the Dorms,” which is designed for Airmen planning to move out of the dorms. Airmen can participate in this program on their own or at the request of their leadership starting with their direct supervisors. The A&FRC also teaches a course during the “Transition, Goals, Plan, Success” workshop, which helps Airmen make the transition from military to civilian life. The financial specialists are also available to attend group gatherings, such as commanders’ calls. While the group sessions are there to quickly reach a larger number, Lambert said he does more one-on-one financial sessions. The one-on-one sessions allow individuals to be more honest about their financial situation as some people are not comfortable speaking about money in front of their leadership or a group, he said. “We look closer at a debt management plan, set up a power pay reduction or look at investing ideas,” Lambert said. One tool the financial service specialists give to service members is powerpay.org. It is a free website that helps people snowball their debt. Lambert said it shows people exactly how much money they will be paying based on interest rates. It helps them to pay down their debt faster without adding more to the regular payments. The A&FRC’s accredited financial

specialists conduct between one and four one-on-one sessions per day, depending on their workload with classes. This helps to ensure they give adequate attention to an individual or family’s concerns. Walk-ins are possible, but they are reserved for Air Force Aid emergencies. “You can’t plan an emergency, but you can budget for them,” Lambert said. “We prefer appointments so you aren’t waiting in the lobby for someone to possibly be able to see you.” By setting up appointments, financial specialists are also able to send budgeting tools to service members to help prepare for the private session, helping to eliminate some of the stress with tackling the task. “When it comes to building a budget, the most important numbers are surplus and deficit,” Lambert said. “If you’re living within your means, you have a surplus. If you’re living negatively, that means the budget may not be accurate or you are living on someone else’s money in order to get by.” To further help service members save money and get on a path to financial success, the A&FRC is gearing up for the Military Saves Campaign from Feb. 23 to 27. “The campaign is to help people reduce debt and build wealth,” Lambert said. “We are bringing in financial educators to teach classes, and we will teach some classes. We encourage people to go to militarysaves.org, click on the ‘Take the Pledge’ graphic to pull a free credit score and credit report to develop their own plan (might not work from military computers), or they can come in here.” For more information about the personal financial readiness services and the Military Saves Campaign, contact the A&FRC at 480-5100 or 06371-47-5100.

903rd CCBN Soldiers deploy to Africa in support of Operation Observant Compass by Rachel Clark 409th Contracting Support Brigade Soldiers from the 903rd Contingency Contracting Battalion were in Africa providing contracting support services for a Special Operations Command Africa-led operation. The contracting team deployed to Entebbe, Uganda, in support of Operation Observant Compass. Contracting support services included various support services and infrastructure needs, said Maj. Justin De Armond, 903rd CCBn. contracting officer. “We provided cus-

tomer contract support for radio station upgrades, repair and maintenance services, short message services, and other communication needs that helped to shape multinational operations against the Lord’s Resistance Army,” Armond said. “We also ensured there were trained contracting officer representatives on the ground and made sure everything went according to plan. This line of effort against the LRA was one of the main efforts as it proved the most fruitful in the destabilization of Joseph Kony’s forces.” The team is part of the 409th Contracting

Support Brigade and augmented the 414th Contracting Support Brigade. The primary mission of the team was to administer the Logistic Civil Augmentation Program task order supporting OOC. “Our team was there providing contract administrative services with an estimated value of $54 million and provide expeditionary contracting support,” said Lt.

Air traffic controllers pave way for pilots by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hat would happen if pilots flew without knowing where other aircraft were in the sky? There would be confusion. To eliminate the doubt from the minds of flyers, air traffic controllers are there to ensure mission success. Air traffic controllers are the eyes that help pilots maneuver through the air space around them. They ensure safe air traffic flow by informing aircraft of their whereabouts in relation to other aircraft. “It is understood pilots are generally quite occupied with the task at hand,” said Staff Sgt. Levi Rodney, 86th Operations Support Squadron air traffic controller. “Although they may be very

English training,” Mole said. “It’s also given me the opportunity to learn platoon-leading skills, as well as learn how other armies work. “It’s been very interesting, because I have been able to see how we do things the same way as well as how we do things differently,” he continued. One of the differences Mole noticed was how the U.S. Army utilizes both a commanding officer and a senior noncommissioned officer to create a “command team,” a unique approach not found in the French army. During his time with the 212th CSH, Mole has spent time with leaders at multiple levels and has been learning the differences in how each individual leader works and operates. “He’s had the opportunity to learn a lot of leadership qualities from shadowing different people,” Kress said. “Everyone has a different leadership style, and he’s been able to shadow executive officers, people within the various shops, and he’s also been in the weeds with the NCOs, watching them and

operations that come through Ramstein to occur because we have so much air traffic.” Military controllers are slightly different than civilian controllers. The qualifications and certifications are the same, but military controllers conduct a lot of specialized training, are required to conduct tactical aircraft movement and may have to perform their tasks under fire. “When I retrained into this career field, I was impressed by seeing Airmen with the ability to manage extremely difficult tasks, work hard and ensure the mission of our command is conducted safely every day,” Rodney said. Air traffic controllers provide pilots with a clear picture and remove the uncertainty of the circumstances a pilot might endure.

While maintaining strong relationships with allies has always been a priority for the U.S. Army, recent world events have prompted a renewed emphasis on the NATO Alliance. “It’s important because it’s very difficult for a single country to do everything alone,” Mole said. “You may

I guess you can say that I’ve developed a great business relationship with them, because they know that I’m fair and ethical in every aspect that I conduct business with them.” OOC has been operating since the fall 2011 and is currently approved by the president to operate through fall 2015. maintain good relationships with our allies, and I think this is a good environment to foster that,” Kress added. “I think it makes us stronger as allies.”

Share your adventures with Capt. Spanky Greetings, my faithful, furless followers. I hope the first couple of months of 2015 have been exciting. This year is looking well for traveling within the European Union. My little nub can’t stay still just thinking about the places I’m going to allow my humans to take me this year. Being stationed at Ramstein allows us to travel to so many places with little to no hassle. On any given weekend, I could be in any of a number of different countries for a small sum of euro. How awesome is that? You know, what makes these trips even more spectacular is that I get to share my adventures with you. I get to tell you about the sights, the sounds and, of course, the food! Hmmm. I’m sorry. I promise I won’t drool over my little keyboard. I’m sure my human wouldn’t be too happy about having to buy me another one. Seriously, I enjoy these times I can share my stories with you, but I know I can’t be the only one traveling. So, I would love to hear about your adventures. I want to hear about your experiences. Tell me about what you saw, heard, felt, smelled and tasted. Let

me know about the different cultures you’ve been exposed to. I want to know about the museums, restaurants, hills, trees, lakes, town squares, trees, historical sites, mountains and valleys, and did I mention the trees? Whether you decide to share your story through photos or a written tale, I look forward to hearing them. Send your adventure stories to 86aw. pa.commandinformation@us.af.mil. Until next time, safe travels wherever your adventures take you.

rotecting Air Force resources is a nonstop effort. In order to do so, service members need to have the proper equipment and protection when deployed to various locations around the globe. The 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron individual protective equipment team ensures Airmen are properly issued the necessary gear used in deployed locations. “Our overall mission here at IPE is to provide all of U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa (personnel) with protective equipment, including chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive gear, Kevlar hel-

mets, individual body armor and weapons,” said Tech Sgt. Jorge Fernandez, 86th LRS individual protective equipment NCOIC. The IPE team tracks, records and manages all the equipment issued to Airmen on Ramstein. The IPE team serves service members of all ranks, in-processing and outprocessing. “The gear we are issuing saves lives,” said Senior Airman Zachary Kettner, 86th LRS IPE journeyman. Providing customers with faster service was the driving force behind them winning the 86th Airlift Wing Innovator of the Month award in October 2014. According to the team, after a year of coordination with the Air Force Material Command, the 86th LRS IPE team finished installing a $244,000 mechanized material handling system.

At 11:11 a.m. Thursday, women from the Ramstein-Miesenbach community will storm the local town hall in celebration of “Altweiberfasching,” or old women’s Fasching, which is one of the craziest days during Fasching season. Altweiberfasching is always observed the Thursday before Rose Monday. Traditionally, women dress as old hags or witches and meet in the morning to walk down the street, sing songs and storm the town halls in some communities. These women constantly look for victims — men wearing ties. As soon as they see a man with a tie — on the street, in a store, in an office — they get out a pair of scissors and “attack” the man, cutting off his tie. Men should beware of women with scissors on this day. Depending on the area in which the tie cutting is performed, the woman might ask the man to either buy her a drink or lose the tie, or she cuts the tie and kisses the man. Women are allowed to act crazy that day and have fun without their “better halves.”

KMC Assembly of God Church

The tradition of women participating in Fasching dates back to the 15th century. During sermons, priests complained about the exchange of clothing between women and men. In 1558, the city council of Überlingen at Lake Constance was forced to prohibit women’s Fasching celebrations in female taverns and dormitories because of women’s indecent behavior. But the women referred to their female rights, such as drinking and dancing during specific Fasching days. Altweiberfasching also marks the status of women in the 15th and 16th century. Wives had well-defined rights since they were the budget keepers. During the crazy season, they sat in judgment of other women who didn’t clean the house or didn’t take care of the children. Later, in several towns in Southern Germany, it became customary to sit in judgment of men. Women usually met in the conference rooms of town halls. That’s why nowadays women still “storm” the town halls on Altweiberfasching to take control and become fully liberated as on no other day. See AltweiberfAsching, next page

It’s not too late Scouts, families triumph in year’s most fun event to vaccinate Story and photo by Sgt. Maj. Michael Pintagro 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs

by Capt. Marilou Mote and Staff Sgt. Maria Rodriguez 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Public Health


he flu vaccine is still available to active-duty members and eligible beneficiaries through the Ramstein immunizations clinic. Flu viruses are constantly evolving, and it’s not unusual for new seasonal viruses to appear each year. Therefore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend getting vaccinated, especially since the flu season can last as late as May. Though some of the viruses spreading this season are different from those in the vaccine, vaccination can still provide protection and may reduce severe outcomes, such as hospitalization and death. The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu is by following the CDC’s “Take 3” actions: take time to get the flu vaccine, take preventive actions every day to stop the spread of germs, and take flu antiviral drugs if prescribed by a doctor. Preventive actions include covering the nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing; washing hands frequently with soap and water (use an alcohol-based hand rub if soap and water are not available); not touching the eyes, nose and mouth; avoiding contact with sick people; and limiting contact with others to keep from infecting them. Most people who get the flu recover between a few days to less than two weeks without medical treatment. The CDC recommends these individuals stay home and avoid contact with others. Antivirals are only recommended by the CDC for more extreme situations, such as when a sick individual requires hospitalization or belongs to a high-risk group (children younger than 5, adults 65 and older, pregnant women, people with chronic conditions and those who are immunosuppressed). Signs and symptoms of flu include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches, fatigue and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea. Those with the flu may experience all or only some of these symptoms. Anyone who experiences difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, purple or blue lip discoloration, pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen, sudden dizziness, confusion, severe or persistent vomiting, seizures, and flu-like symptoms that improve but return with fever and worse cough should seek medical attention. Only those who are very sick should go to the emergency room. In an emergency, call 112 or call Landstuhl Regional Medical Center at 590-4100 or 06371-9464-4100-8106/7184.

Around 100 Cub Scouts, their siblings and adult volunteers from Pack 69, comprised almost entirely of Kaiserslautern-area military families, converged on the Vogelweh Elementary School cafeteria Jan. 24 for food, fast-paced fun and the annual Pinewood Derby. Some 58 cars constructed by Tiger Cubs, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, siblings and adult family members competed by den or open category in an afternoon punctuated by close finishes, cheering Scouts, tasty treats and hijinks. The top three finishers in each den or category won trophies and a year’s worth of bragging rights, with the top three pack performances earning special recognition. Pack automakers employed a variety of designs and decor. Competing cars ranged from hotrods, tactical vehicles and “spaceships” piloted by robots to virtually unadorned blocks of wood. A “Batmobile” and a skateboard competed, and a “police cruiser” promptly pursued them down the wooden track. “The Pinewood Derby is our signature event,” said Maj. Michael J. Swienton of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, the Pack “cubmaster,” or senior leader. “A lot of work and a lot of expression go into the event. They learn a lot and use a variety of skills — design, artistry, woodwork, painting, even public speaking.” The cubmaster personally arranged most of the public speaking opportunities, transforming himself into a “roving reporter” during the derby and conducting live “interviews” with Scouts and participating sisters between heats. Their analysis of design techniques, family automotive efforts and racing results added color and creativity as well as trademark Scout humor to the event. An engineer by trade, Swienton encourages Scouts to apply — or at least consider — scientific principles as they design and construct cars. “At the higher end, the Scouts are actually thinking about design, aerodynamics and all the factors that

influence the speed of the cars,” he said. “The skill level is obviously a little lower for the younger kids. They’re relying a little more on the dads, but they’re involved in the planning, the decoration and all the preparation for the event.” The derby inculcates values as well as woodworking skills. “They learn sportsmanship and teamwork,” Swienton said. “Not every kid can win every trophy, but he can be part of a team and enjoy the camaraderie of participating with the other Scouts and supporting each other. And even if his car isn’t the fastest, it might be the coolest — it might have the best design or look like a cool video game or spaceship. Maybe next year, his car wins a trophy and the other Scouts cheer him on.” Alvina Cooley, Troop 69 scoutmaster, whose eight Boy Scout volunteers played a major role in organizing and conducting the event, said the big lesson is to do your best. “The derby teaches good sportsmanship. It’s a little cliched, but they’re all winners as long as they build a car and it crosses the finish line,” Cooley said. Cooley, a veteran of eight Pinewood Derbies and whose sons occasionally even used hand tools to cut and refine cars during their tenure as Cub Scouts, described the recent race as an organizational as well as a competitive triumph. “Everyone did a good job of working together and keeping the kids happy,” she said. “That improves morale for the volunteers and makes them want to participate in more events. And the younger kids also benefit from the example of the Boy Scouts playing a leading role in a big event and different organizations all cooperating to put it together.”

Like most major Scouting events, the Pinewood Derby typically comes with a double-helping of food and family fun. Scouts, parents, siblings and volunteers rotated among racing, indoor picnic and seating areas throughout the late morning and early afternoon. Several Scouts offered surprisingly substantive assessments of their vehicles’ performance in the aftermath of the derby. “I thought it wouldn’t do so well because my car didn’t do so well last year,” said Archer Swienton, 10, whose car claimed second place in the Webelos One Den. “But this year I polished my axles to get rid of the ridges, and that made it smoother. I think the wheels turned faster because of the smooth axle.” Albert Vandeway, 9, whose Seattle Seahawks-themed car captured second place in the Bear Den, said putting weights in the back helped his car. “I think that made it go down the track faster,” he said. Even some of the youngest Scouts attempted to apply aerodynamic principles. “We made it heavier at the front with a point on it so the wind wouldn’t push it back,” said Tiger Cub Ezra Hunsaker, 7, the son of an Army officer assigned to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, whose pointed car finished second in his den and third among the entire Pack. Hunsaker offered a concise assessment of the derby almost every Scout, sibling, volunteer and parent could endorse. “I think this is the funnest Scout event,” he said. The Pack Blue and Gold Banquet is slated for Feb. 22 at VES.

7 Tips for celebrating Valentine’s Day in Germany story by Susan Melnyk

Here are our top tips and ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day while you’re living in Germany! 1) Visit your local florist. Stock up on gorgeous flowers for your sweet or treat yourself! The flowers are incredibly fresh and well-priced, especially compared to most stateside prices. 2) Try some wine. Head to your local grocery or beverage shop and pick up some wine or beer to celebrate Valentine’s in Germany. Again, the prices will floor you compared to the states and it’s the perfect way to celebrate European style! 3) Make a reservation. Restaurants can get pretty packed during special events, so call or stop by and make a reservation for your special night. Find a great restaurant near you using the The Find-It Guide, KMC edition or online at www.FindItGuide.com 4) Take a romantic walk. Head to your local pedestrian streets of the closest town or city and wander around, hand in hand. 5) Take to the road! Jump in the car and just drive. Get a little lost and stop in some cute town for dinner or to shop.

6) Plan for the future! Sit over dinner or in a romantic cafe and plan a future trip or present then a gift of tickets for. 7) Find an event to attend. Check out the event calendar and find something to do near you online at www.MilitaryInGermany.com

Good hygiene habits prevent cavities in children by Capt. Kaitlin Lee 86th Dental Squadron pediatric dentist February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and this year the focus is on defeating cavities as a family. Children depend on their parents for a good start to oral hygiene and diet. Good hygiene habits start as soon as the first baby tooth erupts. For most children, a rice-size smear of toothpaste with fluoride on a small, soft bristled toothbrush should be used to brush baby’s teeth twice daily. This way, the child’s teeth get the cavity protection from the fluoride without swallowing very much. Once a child can spit, a pea size amount of toothpaste can be used.

Children 8 years old and possibly even older will still need an adult’s help brushing. Most children will want to brush on their own, but simply don’t have the manual dexterity to properly brush all their teeth or the patience to brush for two minutes. Parents should be prepared to help their children brush for many years. Many parents become worried that because they have cavities, their children are destined to have cavities, too. The great news is that cavities, and the bacteria that cause them, are not genetic. However, parents and caregivers often transfer their bad bacteria to their children without even thinking about it. To avoid sharing saliva and bacteria with children, there are a few simple things to keep in mind: wipe

YogaFit training

off a baby’s pacifier with something other than the mouth, taste a separate sample of food rather than the portion given to the child and, often the hardest one to follow, kiss the baby on the cheeks rather than on the lips. These small behavior changes on the parents’ part will help give the child a head start at preventing cavities. Most children love to snack, but grazing throughout the day can lead to cavities. Anytime a child takes one bite of food or a sip of anything but water (even very watered down juice has sugar in it), the oral environment becomes conducive to cavity-causing bacteria. It takes at least 20 minutes for saliva to clear out food and sugar, even from one small cracker. So, the more frequently a child snacks, the more likely he or she is to get cavities. Helping children get into a rou-

Martial Arts Tournament will take place at 10 a.m. Feb. 21 for children ages 3 to 6, and 10 a.m. Feb. 28 for children ages 7 to 18.

tine of three meals and only a couple snacks is an excellent way to set them up for long-term success. Lastly, The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child be seen by a dentist by age 1 or with the eruption of the first tooth. The Ramstein Dental Clinic will be visiting the Ramstein Child Development Center and Ramstein elementary, intermediate and middle schools in February to help children learn how to take care of their teeth. The dental clinic will also be at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center Saturday. Children should stop by and practice brushing a puppet’s teeth and learn about healthy snacks.
