Ambassador visits CRSF by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

A warehouses service agency mechanic works on a humvee Tuesday at the Central Regional Staging Facility in Luxembourg. The CRSF is the only military presence in Luxembourg and is responsible for 85 percent of war readiness material.

The U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg, his Deputy Chief of Mission, representatives from the Logistics Readiness Group and the Logistics Readiness Division of U.S. Air Forces in Europe visited the Central Regional Storage Facility in Sanem, Luxembourg Tuesday. Robert A. Mandell, appointed as the Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in November, was given the opportunity to see the facility that provides a large part of equipment USAFE contributes to U.S. Africa Command, Central Command and European Command. “Last year the site at Sanem aided in the support of 22 operations in 23 nations, including support to operations Odyssey Dawn and Unified Protector,” said Maj. Wes Wenzel, commander of the 86th Materiel Maintenance Squadron, which oversees site operations. “The partnership between the men and women of the 86th MMS and the team at Sanem directly contributed to the success of those operations.” The CRSF has more than 800,000 square feet of storage where it holds 85 percent of the war reserve material maintained by the 86th Material

evolved from a bombardment wing in 1942, to a tactical fighter wing in 1969, into the 86th Airlift Wing July 21, 1994, that we know today. Established Jan. 13, 1942, the mission of the 86th BG(L) was to provide air support for soldiers who fought in areas like North Africa, Italy and Southern Germany during World War II.

During that time, the 86th earned numerous awards. Airmen from the wing have earned awards such as the Distinguished Unit Citation, earned in World War II, to the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award for Exceptionally Meritorious Service award, earned seven times out of the last 10 years. One of those seven was earned with valor.

Management Squadron. Mandell was impressed with the capacity of the CRSF. “The facility is very impressive,” said Ambassador Mandell. “It provides a large amount of material that troops need while deployed.” The Ambassador also added that he is impressed with the skill level of employees at the CRSF. Employed through the warehouse service agency, they routinely inspect, repair and supply equipment from the facility. Mandell believes the facility is important for a partnership with an allied nation. “It’s good to work with an allied nation concerning something that supports a large mission like this,” said Mandell. “It is a great way to strengthen our relationship with the government of Luxembourg.” The Ambassador was appreciative of the opportunity to see what the only U.S. Defense presence in Luxembourg has to offer. “This visit was important for me because now I have a much better understanding of what this facility is capable of,” said Ambassador Mandell. “With this understanding I am better able to work with the Luxembourg Government on how to manage this space.”

No ARIs…no excuses…drink responsibly by Brig. Gen. C.K. Hyde 86th Airlift Wing commander



lcohol-related incidents are a serious issue for our Airmen, families and local community. ARIs directly affect our ability to conduct our military mission, disrupt unit manning and productivity, and create additional burdens on unit leadership. Airmen can and must make responsible choices involving alcohol consumption. ARIs are avoidable ― the circumstances leading up to them are directly shaped by our choices. We must make responsible choices, and our decisions must reflect “service before self.” No excuse can justify the behavior that negatively impacts our mission, people and community. Therefore, our bottom line is: “No ARIs…no excuses…drink responsibly.” Our first pillar for combating ARIs is Mission Focus. ARIs directly impede mission success by creating additional workloads such as investigations, medical attention and disciplinary proceedings, thereby distracting us from our mission. ARIs result in harmful and costly consequences, including the death of our Airmen. We must discuss the negative impact of alcohol abuse on mission accomplishment.

Questions we should all consider: Who depends on me? What is my role in mission accomplishment? Does my alcohol use make me less dependable or impact my unit’s mission? Our second pillar for defeating ARIs is Taking Care of Each Other. We must reinvigorate the wingman concept. A wingman should never be our excuse for irresponsible choices and behaviors. Wingmen must step in before a situation escalates and help ensure right decisions are made in the first place. Most importantly, Airmen should not make choices that put their wingmen in vulnerable or risky positions. Questions we should all consider: Am I a good wingman? Do I make a positive difference as a wingman, leader and warrior? Do I use a wingman as an excuse to abuse alcohol and put my wingman at risk?

Finally, our third pillar for eliminating ARIs is Personal Accountability. Personal Accountability means taking ownership of our actions and adhering to Air Force standards and core values. Using the core values as a guide is essential to good decision-making. On- and off-duty decisions have significant impacts on our mission, units and families. Our nation depends on

responsible and reliable Airmen.

Questions we should all consider: Do I value my profession? Do I live up to Air Force core values? Does alcohol undermine my professionalism and commitment to our core values? We need to be mindful of the high costs of alcohol-related incidents. Last year, our Air Force lost 13 Airmen to fatal accidents involving alcohol, including one Airman from Ramstein. Many Airmen with great potential have ended their careers because they failed to meet their personal responsibility due to poor choices and often-criminal behavior related to the use of alcohol. Our mission, families and communities demand responsible alcohol use. Anything less directly undermines the defense of our nation. One final question: Do you or someone you know struggle with responsible alcohol use? If so, have the courage to ask for help or intervene. 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.

Third time command chief offers philosophy to Airmen by Maj. Paul D. Baldwin 3rd Air Force Public Affairs


hen Chief Master Sgt. Craig Adams graduated from high school in 1985 in Tiffin, Ohio, he spent a little more than a year deciding his job opportunities and college options. Then one day a friend came to his house and asked if he wanted to go to the Air Force recruiter. His brother had already been in the Air Force for almost two years and seemed to enjoy it. So, Adams agreed to go. “Out of high school I had no idea I was coming in the Air Force,” said Adams, the new 3rd Air Force command chief master sergeant since November. “The funny part is I’m the one who ended up coming in the Air Force and my buddy didn’t. And here I am 24 years later and it’s been the best thing that ever happened to me.” The position here is Adams’ third time as a command chief. He previously served as a command chief for the 15th Expeditionary Mobility Task Force at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., and for the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. Adams traveled all around the world after leaving Tiffin, Ohio, a city with a population just under 20,000. In that time, his success has come from being ready, loyal and doing his best every single day. This outlook is what he believes makes the Air Force great, he said. “I think it’s extremely important that all Airmen are ready,” he said. For Adams, this includes being the technical expert, keeping training requirements current, taking care of personal affairs, being physically fit and completing professional military education. Adams said he believes being ready is important for the Air Force to execute its airpower mission. “We need to be a full up round,” the chief said. “Airmen must be ready to deploy and must minimize potential life stressors.” The ready Airman is also loyal to fellow service members, Adams said. The Air Force calls this being a wingman, and the chief is adamant that taking care of oneself, one’s family and other Airmen is derived from courage. “Being a wingman is much more than just being a best friend or a buddy,” he said. “Loyalty is about knowing when to engage when things may get uncomfortable. It’s about having the courage to step in when something is unsafe, to ask for help for yourself, your family or for somebody else if necessary.” ANNIVERSARY, from Page 1

One would think Adams’ success in the Air Force came from some huge turning point in his career, a once in a lifetime opportunity, or by being in the right place at the right time. But this is not the case, the chief said. His career path in the Air Force was really made possible by doing his best every day. “Do your best every single day. It’s all you can do, but you have to do it,” Adams said. “Not every day is going to be a banner day. However, if you hang up your uniform at the end of your shift and you can say you did your best, then I think that’s a lot to be proud of.” Adams has seen a lot of changes in the Air Force throughout his 24 years of service. “One thing is for certain: change is constant,” Adams said. “Change is a challenge we all face and will continue to face in the future.” But even though change is the norm, Adams said he believes the current generation of Airmen is ready for whatever comes next. “The reason we continue to succeed and remain the best Air Force in the world is because of the con-

tributions of every Airman down to the most junior member,” the chief said. “We have the best we’ve ever had right now. And we’re the best we’ve ever been. Even with a smaller force we’re smarter and we’re motivated. No matter what is thrown at our Airmen they are getting it done.” As it turns out, Adams’ brother is still in the Air Force and a fellow chief. One begins to wonder if there wasn’t something in the water in Northern Ohio after all. Adams’ parents have a lot to be proud of. But Adams is hesitant to take too much credit. He insists he got here by doing the little things and staying ready, with the support from mentors, leaders, family and friends. “I’ve never held the key to the next door,” he said. “I just try to do my best every day. I literally take everything one step at a time.” Borrowing a quote from a friend, Adams said this about his service: “There was a time when I was in the Air Force, and then one day I realized the Air Force was in me. It’s changed my life, been my career and I feel very fortunate.”

Metamorphosis of a Soldier by 2nd Lt. Chaz Deering 635th Movement Control Team


he 39th Transportation Battalion honored 36 noncommissioned officers during a recent induction ceremony on Ramstein, recognizing a junior Soldier’s accomplishments and evolution as a leader. The rite of passage for newly pro-

moted NCOs is not an easy one, said the 16th Sustainment Brigade’s command sergeant major. “The transition that you are about to make and the journey you are about to embark on is what I consider the most difficult in the Army. This will be an ever evolving process that you will diligently work at,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Ismael Rodriguez. “This metamorphose that you are undertaking, that

of a Soldier to an NCO, a follower to a leader, is the very core of what makes us the back bone of the Army.” Command Sgt. Maj. Walton Jones, the command sergeant major of the 39th Trans. Bn., commenced the ceremony by demanding all the doors in the room be shut in order to prevent the symbolic ceremony from being disturbed. The custom has remained a tra-

dition historically for the NCO Corps. Jones led the final charge of inducting the Soldiers into the NCO corps. “A military ceremony is not ours. It’s not yours even if you are the sole reason for the ceremony,” Rodriguez said. “The ceremony belongs to all Soldiers. This is a simple tradition of our Army, packed with a power stimulus of Soldiers and future leaders.”

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month by Capt. Peter Carra 86th Aerospace Medical Squadron During the month of January, the Ramstein Optometry Clinic will be offering glaucoma screenings to all Tricare beneficiaries. The air puff test, officially known as non-contact tonometry, will be offered on a walk-in basis from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Mondays. This test is strictly done as a glaucoma screening and does not replace a complete eye exam. Q: What is glaucoma? A: According to the American Optometric Association, glaucoma is a group of eye disorders leading to progressive damage to the optic nerve and is characterized by loss of nerve tissue resulting in loss of vision. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S. Q: What are the signs and symptoms of glaucoma? A: Glaucoma is a very dangerous disease of the eye because most often it presents with little or no signs or symptoms. Severe cases of glaucoma may present with eye pain, loss of vision, nausea or decreased peripheral vision. The sooner we can detect glaucoma, the easier it is to manage and the less chance for complications, therefore it is important to have complete routine eye exams every one to two years.

the air puff test. This demonstrates why it is necessary to have a complete eye exam performed by an eye doctor routinely. Many other secondary types of glaucoma can be caused by health conditions, eye diseases, previous trauma, etc. Q: What are the risk factors for glaucoma? A: Unlike most diseases, glaucoma is generally not caused by poor diet or environmental causes. Glaucoma can affect any person at any time. Glaucoma is also known to have some genetic components so a thorough family history is often important. According to the American Optometric

Q: Are there any other ways to test for glaucoma? A: Aside from the air puff test, Goldman tonometry and tonopen are alternative ways to determine intraocular pressure. These techniques may be considered more invasive because the eye must be numbed with eye drops first. Also, finger tensions can be used to measure eye pressure by just feeling the outside of the eyeball over the eye lid. However, these measurements are reserved for small children and those who cannot be tested any other way. Beside intraocular pressure, some other testing may also be used to help diagnose glaucoma. Q: How do you treat glaucoma? A: If caught early enough it is fairly easy to treat. Though there is no cure for glaucoma, with today’s advances in medicine, glaucoma can be controlled and managed for a lifetime preventing or reducing vision loss. The normal beginning treatment for non advanced cases could be as simple as using one eye drop every night before bedtime. More severe cases may require multiple medications and surgery to help lower your intraocular pressure. If left untreated, glaucoma could result in peripheral vision loss or complete blindness.

AFAFRICA senior leaders visit Rwanda Story and photo by Master Sgt. Jim Fisher 17th Air Force Public Affairs KIGALI, Rwanda ― Air Forces Africa (17th Air Force) Commander Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward and Command Chief Master Sgt. Michael Grimm led a senior leader engagement team to meet with Rwandan Air Force officials Dec. 14 to 16 here. The team also interfaced with U.S. Embassy officials and their counterparts in the Office of Security Cooperation.

The visit was also the second of a pair of engagements in the region, with the first stops being Entebbe and Kampala, Uganda, Dec. 12 to 14. Woodward pointed out that while AFAFRICA is in the process of consolidating with U.S. Air Forces in Europe and 3rd Air Force, a full schedule of engagements under U.S. Africa Command continues. “Even though we are in transition, we continue to move our African partnerships forward,” the general said. “Our mission of engagement, capacity building and pursuing shared interests continues and will Maj.

Saving AF dollars…and gallons Airfield assessment teams by Staff Sgt. Warren Spearman 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs In these times of saving money and being environmentally conscious, the Air Force has taken steps to implement both measures at the same time. The 86th Airlift Wing is boldly being proactive in its approach to these measures. One of these approaches is the fuel efficiency program implemented by Air Mobility Command. The program is designed to document and limit the amount of costly overfuels on each air mobility aircraft, yet still safely operates the airplane to accomplish the mission. Air mobility units report their fuel and cargo loads to an online AMC fuel efficiency tracker. AMC’s requirement is data for 80 percent of the missions flown must be uploaded into their sys-

tem. The 86th Airlift Wing C-130s reporting falls between 95 to 100 percent, which ranks among the top in all the Air Force. In 2011, these efforts were recognized when the 37th Airlift Squadron, on behalf of the 86th AW, received the Best C-130 Cargo Accuracy Award. “This award highlights our squadron’s commitment to accurate participation in the fuel efficiency tracking system,” said Maj. Mike Pontiff, assistant director of operations at the 37th AS. When asked how the fuel efficiency efforts benefit the 86th AW’s mission as well the Air Force in general, Pontiff said. “We are able to move more cargo and passengers at a lower cost. It also contributes to reducing our overall environmental impact and saves the Air Force energy costs at a time when saving is so important,” he said.

work behind the scenes for successful operations

by Senior Airman Katherine Holt 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs It is made of 12 members each with a different Air Force specialty code ready to mobilize in 12 hours. It includes equipment and manpower to conduct landing zone, airfield, air traffic control and site surveys. It is capable of self-sustained operations for 120 hours to assess and report status of organic command and control, communications, ATC, airfield pavements, infrastructure, force protection and overall airfield conditions to combat commanders to determine suitability for mobility combat operations. It is the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing’s Contingency Response Group Airfield Assessment Team. “We have everything you would need to go into an airfield, whether it is a contingency environment or a previously utilized airfield, to make sure everything is safe for aircraft to come in,” said Tech. Sgt. Stanley MacDonald, 435th CRG air traffic controller and airfield assessment team member. “Our main

goal is to determine if the runway or landing zone can support aircraft, the type of aircraft and how many times an aircraft can land with the ultimate goal of bringing in follow-on forces.” The team includes an operations commander, a mobility airlift navigator, an airfield operations officer, a civil engineer officer, a logistics readiness officer, security forces, a loadmaster, an air traffic controller, a medic, an airfield manager, a communications specialist and an enlisted engineer. “We act as USAFE’s 9-11,” said Master Sgt. Thomas Franz, 435th CRG contingency airfield manager. “If a contingency arises, whether it be a Noncombatant Evacuation Operation, Humanitarian Relief Operation or any other crisis, planners need to know whether or not an airfield or landing strip can be utilized to open a base.” The airfield assessment team has three means of insertion to get into an airfield to begin their assessment: air-

Kaiserslautern American borne, air land and overland. Based on the size and suitability of the landing zone or runway, the assessment process can take anywhere from two to six hours to complete their assessment. “My primary goal as an airfield manager is the landing surface,” said Franz. “We will make an initial call back once we determine the landing surface is usable.” Another team member who plays a vital role in determining the suitability of the landing surface is the engineer. On the surface, a runway may appear suitable to land aircraft, but until the engineer conducts his test to assess the strength of each layer, underneath the asphalt or concrete, there is no way to know how the landing surface will react to an aircraft landing. “If we land an aircraft like the C-17 without testing the surface it could cause damage to the runway and/or aircraft,” said MacDonald. During a humanitarian mission, it is essential to know what type of aircraft will be able to land in the area. “For a humanitarian mis-

sion we could be bringing in large quantities of supplies,” said Franz. “And if we know that the landing zone can only hold C-130s, that information plays a big part in the Air Force’s planning process.” This airfield assessment team has two new capabilities it brings to U.S. Air Forces in Europe: air traffic controllers and their ability to control aircraft on landing zones. In addition, the CRG has personnel who are able to perform landing zone safety officer duties. “We now have air traffic controllers imbedded in the airfield assessment team. Not only can we assess the runway, but we can bring in aircraft and follow on forces with an air traffic controller,” said MacDonald. Restrictions in AFIs have limited the CRG’s role as far as landing zones are concerned. A recently granted waiver to an AFI has given air traffic controllers in the CRG the ability to land aircraft on any type of surface. Recently, the team was on an off station training in Spain where they were able to employ this new

capability alongside Spanish AF combat controllers. “In Spain, we were able to use our air traffic controllers to land aircraft on the dirt strip,” said MacDonald. “This was a first for us, USAFE and for the Air Force.” Partnering with the 37th Airlift Squadron gives the airfield assessment team the opportunity to train and hone their skills and capabilities. Having a flying unit that is not only collocated but also having a mutually beneficial training relationship with that unit is key to the CRG’s mission. “This past OST gave us the opportunity to not only use our airborne capability, but also gave us the opportunity to conduct an air land infiltration and provide a baseline for future operations,” said Franz. “This is the first time we have practiced the air land insertion and were able to

practice it at night utilizing NVGs.” The team personnel composition is always changing and it is vital that they continue building on the relationship established with the 37th Airlift Squadron training events like this OST will continue to hone their skills. “The vision of our leadership has been essential in acquiring the personnel, equipment and training events necessary to build on this capability,” said Franz “The CRG is a very capable force and is only getting better,” said MacDonald. “What we bring to USAFE and EUCOM, I see it as invaluable. We are excited to be employed whenever that opportunity comes up. We train and train and train so that in the one instance we are needed, we can show our stuff.”

DOD leaders: US will remain world’s strongest military by Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON ― The Defense Department’s new 10-year strategy will ensure the U.S. remains the world’s strongest military power, DOD leaders emphasized in weekend interviews. In an interview with Jim Schieffer that aired Monday on the CBS news program “Face the Nation,” Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said the department is changing to respond to a new global reality. The strategy announced Jan. 5 outlines defense priorities for the coming decade, and emphasizes trimming the force while investing in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance programs, combating anti-access technologies, countering weapons of mass destruction and prevailing in all domains, including the cyber world. “Clearly, we face the constriction of having to reduce the budget by almost half a trillion dollars,” the secretary said. “We developed a strategy that said (the military) is going to be leaner, it is going to be smaller, but it has to be agile, it has to adaptable, it has to be flexible, quickly deployable, and it has to be technologically advanced. That’s the kind of force we need for the future.” The department’s plan calls for priority emphasis on the Pacific and the Middle East, while maintain-

ing a presence elsewhere, Panetta noted. “The bottom line is, when we face an aggressor anyplace in this world, we’re going to be able to respond and defeat them,” he added. The chairman said a popular misconception about the new strategy assumes the nation’s forces will no longer be able to fight more than one conflict at a time. “In fact, we were pretty adamant that we must be able to do more than one thing at a time, and by the way not limit ourselves to two,” Dempsey said. “The threat, and the environment in which we find ourselves in this decade of the 21st century, suggests to us that it’s likely to be more than two.” The strategy aims to build a force capable across the military operational spectrum with the leadership, manning and equipment to provide options to the national command authority, the chairman noted. One point that may have been underemphasized, he added, is that the military has “learned an enormous amount over the last 10 years about how to wage war.” Dempsey said the military has developed strengths unforeseen a decade ago, noting its capabilities in special operations, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and cyber. “What we’re looking to do here is not constrain ourselves to a two-war construct, but rather build a force that has the kind of agility the secretary men-

tioned, that is a learning organization that will adapt itself to what it confronts,” he said. The military has seen a decade of high demand, and defense leaders are working to ensure the force size remains adequate and adaptive to future missions, he said. “We do have a ... significant, capable (National) Guard and reserve component, and we do have an active component that has learned a lot over the last 10 years,” Dempsey noted. “What we’re trying to do is break the template and think about different ways of accomplishing the task, to give more options to our nation’s leaders.” The geopolitical and economic challenges of 2012 demand a shift in military power, the general said. “What we’re trying to do is challenge ourselves to respond to that shift and to react to that strategic inflection point,” he said. Dempsey said his concern is that in light of changing strategy and budget issues, some will see the U.S. as a nation and a military in decline. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” the chairman asserted. “That miscalculation could be troublesome ... it could cause even our close partners to wonder, what kind of partner are we? So what I’d like to say right now is, we’re the same partner we’ve always been, and intend to remain that way.”

Joined at the wing by Dr. Marshall Michel 52nd Fighter Wing historian At the beginning World War II in the West, the German Luftwaffe used small gliders, each carrying nine troops, very successfully in Belgium and Crete. The gliders’ success spurred the Luftwaffe Technical Bureau to call for the design and construction of larger gliders, notably the Messerschmitt Me 321, which was more than 90 feet long, had a wing span of more than 180 feet and was capable of carrying 130 troops. There was, however, a major problem. The Luftwaffe lacked an aircraft powerful enough to tow such a large glider. In an almost desperate attempt to find a large enough aircraft, German designers hit on the idea of taking two airframes of its most numerous medium bomber, the Heinkel He 111, and joining them with a new 40-foot center wing section carrying a fifth engine. This twin-fuselage, five-engine aircraft was dubbed the He 111Z “Zwilling,” or twin. It had a crew of seven with the pilot sitting in the left fuselage with the primary mechanic, gunner and a radio operator/navigator. The starboard fuselage carried the co-pilot, a secondary mechanic and another gunner.

Before the end of World War II, North American Aircraft began to work on a similar two fuselage design of their P-51 Mustang for long range escort duties in the Pacific. The aircraft, the P-82 Twin Mustang, was used by the U.S. Air Force as an escort fighter and night fighter through 1951 and scored the first air-to-air “kill” of the Korean War.

Use caution when using minimalist running shoes by Maj. Zack Solomon U.S. Army Public Health Command In 1974, co-founder of Nike Bill Bowerman created one of the first modern-day running shoes, the “Waffle Trainer” in an effort to create a lightweight shoe that would grip the road. This shoe launched a revolution in running shoe design and probably triggered the explosion in popularity of distance running throughout the U.S. in the 1970s and early 1980s. Innovative shoe designs multiplied out of demand for more foot cushioning and motion control as people from all walks of life took up running. Shoe mid-foot arch construction grew rigid, and heel cushion material was heightened to correct running form and presumably prevent injuries. Three types of shoes emerged: motion-control shoes for runners with low foot arches, stability shoes for neutral arches, and cushioned shoes for high arches. These designs were meant to make shoe selection easy; runners would first identify their arch type, then they would choose an appropriate shoe, and finally they

would begin running injury free. Unfortunately, this system of shoe selection hasn’t lived up to runners’ expectations as running injuries persisted. As well, multiple U.S. Army Public Health Command studies in basic trainees have demonstrated that shoe selection based on arch type does not reduce injuries. Now, a new trend, a departure from control and cushioning, has emerged ― the minimalist running shoe. A minimalist running shoe is extremely flexible and low to the ground to create the sensation of barefoot running. By running in a shoe with minimal cushioning, most runners will naturally reduce their stride length to avoid landing painfully on their uncushioned heel. This change in running form reduces initial joint impact and promotes a return to what some consider a more natural foot motion. The growing popularity of minimalist running shoes in both the civilian and military communities was sparked by the promise of increased running performance and decreased risk of running injuries. Although the jury is still out on whether minimal-

Boxing: Hernandez vs. Cunningham

IBF Cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (25-1, 13 KOs) and Steve Cunningham (24-3, 12 KOs) will meet again Feb. 4 in Frankfurt. Both boxers met last year in a match on Oct. 1, with Hernandez winning a technical decision in Neubrandenburg. The fight was stopped on cuts, with Hernandez ahead on the scorecards after scoring a first-round knockdown. Team Sauerland General Manager Chris Meyer said the rematch will be a real treat for boxing fans. In the co-featured main event, Enad Licina (21-3, 11 KOs) will face former amateur world champion Alexander Alexeev (22-2, 20 KOs) for the vacant European Cruiserweight Title. European Light Heavyweight Champion Eduard Gutknecht (22-1, 9 KOs) also defends his title against Viacheslav Uzelkov (25-1, 16 KOs). For tickets, call the hotline at 01805-570044.

Bowling tournament

The second annual nine-pin no tap team bowling tournament, sponsored by the Kaiserslautern Military Community Sergeants Major Association, will take place Jan. 21 at the Vogelweh Bowling Center, Bldg. 2060 on Vogelweh. The tournament, which costs $20 per bowler (four bowlers per team), includes three games and shoe rental. The tournament starts at 12:30 p.m. with check-in beginning at noon. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top two teams, as well as awards for men’s and women’s high

ist running shoes will live up to these expectations, the trend will surely grow as shoe companies expand and market their latest minimalist shoe product lines. Soldiers interested in making the switch from a traditional running shoe to a minimalist design should exercise caution in doing so because a sudden change in equipment or training can result in sore muscles and joints, blisters and even injuries such as stress fractures. The calf muscles will require the greatest adjustment, followed by the muscles of the foot and hamstrings. Running impact forces may also increase temporarily as the Soldier adapts to a shortened stride and forefoot strike. The following are a few tips to make a smooth transition: • Soldiers should only perform 10 percent of their normal running distance and volume in minimalist running shoes for the first two to three weeks. For example, if a Soldier runs 10 miles per week, only one mile per week should include the use of minimalist running shoes. Traditional running shoes can still be worn

the rest of the time. • No more than a 10 percent increase in distance per week is recommended for at least eight weeks after the initial transition phase. Some Soldiers may take up to six months to get used to running in minimalist shoes. • Avoid running two days in a row in minimalist running shoes for the first four weeks. • Run on different surfaces, such as grass, dirt and pavement, to get used to the feel of the shoes. Make sure the running surface is clear of debris and glass. • Stretching will be very important during the first few weeks to alleviate soreness. Focus on stretching the foot, calf and hamstring muscles.

Joyful Noise (PG-13) ― The small town of Pacashau, Ga., has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. If these two strong-willed women can put aside their differences for the good of the people in their town, they ― and their choir ― may make the most joyful noise of all. Starring Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah. Tower Heist (PG-13) ― Josh Kovaks

has managed one of the most luxurious and well-secured residences in New York City for more than a decade. In the swankiest unit atop Josh’s building, Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw is under house arrest after being caught stealing 2 billion from his investors. The hardest hit among those he defrauded? The tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage. With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh’s crew turns to petty crook Slide to plan the nearly impossible ― to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo. Starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy.
