AF government travel cards receive tech upgrade by Air Force Public Affairs Agency Operating Location-P WASHINGTON — Beginning this month, Citibank is issuing chip and PIN-enabled government travel cards to new card applicants, individuals whose cards will expire in 2015, and individuals who have reported lost or stolen cards. This is the first phase in a multi-phased rollout that will enhance the security and convenience of government travel and pay systems. The new cards are embedded with a microchip that provides for transaction encryption and an elevated level of authentication. Chip and PIN technology strengthens data security, better protecting cardholders’ personally identifiable information, as well as the government’s sensitive transaction and payment data. “The cards are yet another tool to combat potential fraud,” said Eric Cuebas, director of Air Force financial services. “By working together with chipenabled terminals, they ensure a more secure transaction by validating both the card and cardholder. Additionally, Citi’s chip and PIN cards do not use radio frequency functionality and are strictly contact-only cards. Therefore, they are not susceptible to the skimming issue encountered by radio frequency identification cards.” All cardholders should log into CitiManager and review mailing and email addresses and contact information under “My Card Account/Card

Maintenance.” The cardholder can also review their information using the account listing report in Citibank’s custom reporting system. “This new card change should have minimal impact on Airmen,” Cuebas said. “If the current

card will expire while TDY, the traveler should update the address at least 60 days prior to the expiration date of the current GTC to ensure delivery of See GTC, Page 2

Ramstein to implement mandatory reboot by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Communications Squadron will push an update to all government computers on Ramstein, forcing them to reboot every 72 hours starting Monday. The update is part of an Air Forcewide initiative to improve communication security. “The purpose of the reboot is to

improve patching and ensure the latest software and updates are disseminated throughout the base,” said 2nd Lt. Kyle Massey, 86th CS focal point officer in charge. Software updates are important, because they provide users with security and increase the integrity of the system. With the reboot, the latest programs and applications will be upto-date every few days. Sometimes developers find errors or holes in programs and applications, forcing them to update the program to protect the

user from malicious network behavior. “Let’s say you get some software and the developers decide there’s something wrong or some way could be exploited in a way an adversary could take advantage of, possibly hacking into your computer,” Massey said. “If we didn’t have the 72-hour reboot, we’d have to manually ensure everyone’s computers are updated all the time and are operating with secure software.” Massey recommends NIPR users reboot their computers during the day, so they have a chance to save their

work. If a computer is about to reboot, it will give the user a 90-minute window to save any work before the system automatically reboots, potentially causing data loss. Not only does the automatic reboot update programs and applications, it will also save the 86th CS time, ultimately allowing Airmen to focus on other parts of the mission. “It makes things more automated and makes it easier for the communications squadron to do their job,” Massey said.

What is your story? COMMENTARY

by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs As a photojournalist for the U.S. Air Force, I have been exposed to and documented many aspects of the military, and I get to see how everything comes together. Even as a younger Airman, I can see to some extent how each mission is important and why each Airman’s story needs to be told. However, this was not always the case. Part of my mission as a member of a wing public affairs office is to document retirement ceremonies. As I was covering one ceremony at my previous assignment, I began to see why every story needs to be told. It was during a pretty busy time of the year for my office. We were low-manned, and the jobs kept

coming. As I was walking into my third job assignment on a late Friday afternoon, I was convincing myself to go into “auto pilot” for this retirement ceremony, but what I saw when I walked in changed my mind. In the room reserved to hold a celebration of an Airman’s 20-plus years of service in the Air Force, there were barely 25 people in attendance, including her family. I decided to get myself out of the funk I was creating and made up my mind to go above and beyond for this person. I was extra thorough as I covered the medal and certificate presentations, the goodbye speeches, the flag folding ceremony and then the master sergeant’s final speech as an active-duty member of the Air Force. It was during her final speech that this sergeant unknowingly changed

She was aware many of those in attendance, including myself, would have rather been getting ready to head home for the weekend. Yet, she thanked us for sharing that moment with her family. As she said, even if we had seen a hundred flag folding ceremonies, that was her family’s first time seeing it, and this particular ceremony was more special to them, because it was performed for their Airman. Her words hit me hard because, for the first time in my career, I realized my job and mission weren’t for me. I was able to capture those moments for her and her family to one day look back on. As the people involved in her ceremony tried to tell just a small portion of her story, I had the oppor-

tunity to preserve another piece of it. I will be forever grateful to her for that. It is part of my job to document potentially historically significant events, and, before that ceremony, I didn’t see how documenting a retirement ceremony or someone doing his or her day-to-day job could fall into that category. That day I became aware it is my job to capture and tell every Airman’s story, so I can share it with their family, friends, loved ones and the rest of the world. We all have a story to tell.

Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, commanding general of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, speaks to senior leaders of the 21st TSC and organizers of the U.S. Army Europe Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Resource Center during a senior leader orientation Jan. 7 on Sembach Kaserne. The SHARP RC is a new partnership between USAREUR SHARP, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, the Criminal Investigation Division and the office of the Staff Judge Advocate to create a one-stop resource center for victims of sexual assault.

eaders from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command officially marked the opening of the U.S. Army Europe Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Resource Center on Sembach Kaserne during a senior leader orientation and cake cutting ceremony Jan. 7. The SHARP RC is a new partnership among USAREUR SHARP, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, the Criminal

Investigation Division and the office of the Staff Judge Advocate to create a one-stop resource center for victims of sexual assault. “The purpose of the SHARP RC is to offer safe, comprehensive, victim-centered services to those within the Army family who have been victims of a SHARP incident,” said Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, commanding general of the 21st TSC. “It also serves as the center for SHARP training in the Kaiserslautern Military Community, and I am confident it will help to eradicate sexual assault and sexual harassment in our ranks.”

Lt. Col. Patricia K. Wright, commander of the TSC’s 21st Special Troops Battalion, said the major improvement and advantage is consolidating SHARP services under one roof. “Anyone who needs these resources — survivors, family members, commanders — can find everything they need in one place,” she said. “They can have complete confidence all resources are available to them on-site.

First in, last out — of Poland by Capt. Ken Hirose 435th Air Ground Operations Wing Members of the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing’s 1st Combat Communications Squadron were deployed to Powidz Air Base, Poland, in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a demonstration of the United States’ ongoing commitment to the collective security of NATO and European allies. As the Air Force’s most highly decorated non-flying unit, the 1st CBCS is no stranger to this type of operation. Part of the AGOW’s suite of “Expeditionary Airfields on Demand” capabilities, the men and women of the 1st CBCS are tasked to deploy and establish communications, air traffic control and landing systems anywhere in the European and African theaters within 72 hours. The six-person team at Powidz pro-

vided a secure command and control platform to support flying operations for aircraft from the 182nd Airlift Wing, Illinois Air National Guard. Within hours of “boots on the ground” in Poland, they had turned an empty building into a fully functional operations center. “Working with the guard has been a great experience and has really challenged me,” said Staff Sgt. Megan Thorlund, 1st CBCS data lead. “They do not utilize many of the active-duty networks and systems we do, so there have been connectivity and compatibility issues, which we have been able to work through. It makes us better in the long run and reinforces the ‘total force’ concept.” By providing air-to-ground communications to the aircrews, as well as a secure reachback and flight planning capability, this small team ensured deployed aircrews can conduct bilat-

eral exercises with Poland and the neighboring Baltic states to include practicing low-level flight training, touchdowns at unimproved landing zones and airdrop training of both cargo and personnel. “I’m extremely impressed by the efforts of 1st Combat Communications Squadron personnel deployed to Poland,” said Lt. Col. Jack Harman, Aviation Detachment commander at Powidz. “With only six people, they coordinated all deployed communication requirements for seven C-130s and 176 personnel. They enabled U.S. units to maintain a continuous presence in Eastern Europe, displaying America’s commitment to collective security in the region and bolstering Poland’s ability to integrate within NATO. This team serves as an example of professionalism and combat communications capability.” In addition to supporting mission

objectives, the team has organized and participated in three different community outreach events. Doing so demonstrates a commitment to the Polish community as NATO partners. Likewise, the local town of Kleczew has adopted the team and hosted them as mentors for their high school students and honored guests for their Polish Independence Day celebration where the town mayor praised their continued support. From providing top-notch communications capabilities for flying operations to strengthening partnerships with allies, this team has done it all. But that’s just another day on the job when the motto is “First In, Last Out!” (Second Lt. Thomas McKenzie, Master Sgt. Albert Black, Staff Sgt. Neal Willoughby and Senior Airman Richard Eickholt contributed to this article.)

Ambassador: 1 nation can win a war; it takes many to maintain the peace by Sgt. Maj. Michael Pintagro 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs


he U.S. ambassador to Germany praised allied peace-building and humanitarian efforts and called for resolute action in the face of Russian aggression during a visit to Ramstein Dec. 13. U.S. Ambassador John B. Emerson, who assumed duties as the 32nd American ambassador to Germany during the summer of 2013, delivered a powerful message before an audience of around 450 officers, enlisted leaders, and regional military and civic officials during the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 2014 Holiday Ball. The ambassador described the U.S. response to Russian aggression in the Crimea and Ukraine as “crucial to our understanding of how military, political, economic and cultural alliances can work — or not — in the 21st century.” Noting that “Russia’s policies of aggression in Ukraine undermine the rule of law and territorial integrity that have been emblematic of post-

Cold War Europe.” Emerson condemned the incursions in stark terms. But the ambassador also held out hope for a diplomatic resolution to current tensions. “NATO members and all those who support Ukraine’s sovereignty do not seek confrontation,” he said. “It is not our design or desire to isolate Russia. In fact, we are convinced that Moscow could rebuild trust and relationships if it simply helps to calm turbulent waters and implements the Minsk agreements. “If Russia takes such a path, sanctions will be lifted,” the Chicago-born, New Yorkbred diplomat added. “And what’s more, Russia’s role in addressing common challenges will be welcomed. For years, the U.S. and Russia have worked together on issues ranging from reducing our nuclear stockpiles to meeting our obligations under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to cooperating in the Middle East.” Emerson said this is the kind of cooperation that needs to be pursued. “No one gains from this confrontation,” he said. “We have too much work to do and too many common challenges, from terrorism and

nuclear proliferation to epidemic disease and climate change.” The ambassador reiterated the centrality of the Western alliance to U.S. diplomacy and its importance to stability and humanitarian progress

around the world following his remarks in Ramstein. “People around the world look to the strength of the transatlantic partnership for inspiration,” he said. “I would say that how we have managed the events of the past

year has proven that. We are all thankful for the key role that the U.S. military has played over the years in bringing us closer than ever before to our shared goal of a See ambassador, Page 9

AF announces no involuntary force management programs for FY15 WASHINGTON — Air Force officials announced there is no longer a need to conduct involuntary force management programs for fiscal year 2015 following a year of significant reductions designed to meet the Defense Department strategic and budgetary guidance. Officials confirmed that fiscal year 2014 goals were achieved to size and shape the force, eliminating the previously anticipated requirement to conduct a second round of

involuntary programs in fiscal year 2015. “My travels and discussion with Airmen this past year have convinced me that enough is enough,” said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. “Therefore, we will not have additional, involuntary boards in FY15.” Targeted fiscal year 2015 voluntary programs, with eligibility limited by both grade and Air Force specialty codes, will be offered to help prop-

erly shape the force. These non-monetary opportunities are part of the normal steadystate force management programs used annually to size and shape the force according to mandated end strength. Voluntary programs will include waivers of some active-duty service commitments, reductions of required time in grade for retirements, and reductions from 10 to eight years of commissioned service for retirements, allow-

ing prior enlisted officers to retire with eight years of commissioned time versus 10. The Palace Chase program will still be in place, but the expanded option of a one-forone transfer will not be available this year. Specific details on voluntary programs will be released in early 2015. “I’m really pleased we’ll be able to offer our dedicated Airmen a break this year,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. “Throughout this diffi-

cult process we committed to providing information to our Airmen and families early so they could make decisions. Announcing the FY15 programs now continues that commitment and provides some of the stability Airmen truly deserve.” For more information on force management and other personnel programs, visit myPers.

ultinational training exercises bring Soldiers and equipment from around the world together for a realistic training experience. After weeks of hard work and equipment use, it is time for the Soldiers and their gear to go home. One organization in Kaiserslautern makes equipment retrograde easy. The United States continues to demonstrate its commitment to the collective security of its NATO allies and support for its partners in Europe in light of the on-going Russian intervention in Ukraine, with assurance exercises and training activities in Poland and the Baltic region taking place for the next few months and beyond.

Page 9 are engaged in a re-examination of who we are and what we stand for in the post-Cold War, post-reunification, globalized world of the 21st century,” Emerson said. “The NATO summit in Wales was a part of this process. All 28 NATO allies made a series of very important commitments on assurance, defense spending, readiness and partnerships.” The ambassador highlighted the contributions of U.S. military personnel, particularly Soldiers serving with U.S. Army Europe and the 21st TSC, to regional security as well as world humanitarian efforts. “We all sleep better knowing that the U.S. military, as the strongest partner in the Alliance, is prepared for any contingency and supports the Rapid Response Force and increased presence in Central and Eastern Europe,” he said. Turning his attention to Operation United Assistance and U.S. contributions to humanitarian endeavors in Ebola-afflicted West Africa, the ambassador praised the efforts of medical volunteers, aid workers, international partners and U.S. military personnel, including Soldiers from the 21st TSC’s 902nd Engineer Company (Vertical), part of the 15th Eng. Battalion, 18th Military Police Brigade, who recently built 74 structures in support of medical missions in Liberia. Emerson emphasized the potentially dire consequences of inaction in Africa. “If this epidemic is not stopped, this disease could cause a humanitarian catastrophe across the region that would reverberate around the world,” he said. “In an era in which regional crises can quickly become global threats, stopping Ebola is in the interest of everyone. So we are very proud of those 21st TSC personnel who have participated in this important mission.”

his unit’s Soldiers can be found at every major airborne exercise in Europe, and they train with other paratroopers all over the world. They are known for providing the best in aerial delivery and an airborne Santa every year. As one chapter in this historic unit closes, another begins. The 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s 5th Quartermaster Company (Rigger) transfered authority from the 21st Special Troops Battalion to the 39th Transportation Battalion, 16th Sustainment Brigade during a ceremony Jan. 6 on Rhine Ordnance Barracks. Authority over and care for the 5th QM Co. will now fall to the 39th Trans Bn. All personnel actions, open legal actions and property accountability also went to the “We’ll Carry You” battalion. The transfer was signified by the Soldiers of the company donning the 16th Sust. Bde. patch. “This transfer of authority involved the transfer of a lot of property, equipment and reporting chains, something that is not necessarily easy,” said Lt. Col. Steven

Dowgielewicz, 39th Trans. Bn. commander. “The transfer happened with ease and transparency because of the hard work of the 21st Special Troops Battalion.” The transfer of authority is part of the 21st TSC’s realignment of logistics assets in Europe to better plan and execute future missions. The 5th QM Co. is the only U.S. aerial delivery company in Germany, a capability valuable to the 39th Trans. Bn. and its mission. “By aligning logistics assets all under single commands, like the 16th Sustainment Brigade, it allows planners to assess the full spectrum of distribution options within the European Command,” Dowgielewicz said. “Having an aerial delivery capability is definitely an asset to this battalion and brigade.” As the Soldiers of the 5th QM Co. move forward in their new battalion, their commander expressed the occasion as bittersweet. “The 21st Special Troops Battalion has been our home for a long time and the only battalion most of us have ever known,” said Capt. Toby D. Holland, 5th QM Co. commander. “We are sad to say goodbye to the STB, but we are excited to start our mission with the 39th (Trans. Bn.).”

Europe, whole, free and at peace. “Yet we also recognize that we cannot take peace and prosperity for granted,” he continued. “Major challenges have emerged over the past several months. Just look at the Ebola outbreak, the emergence of a barbaric terrorist threat in the Middle East, and Russia’s annexation of Crimea and incursions on the sovereignty of Ukraine. These naturally pose very different threats from those we experienced during the world wars of the last century or during the Cold War. But they are extremely significant and potentially very dangerous.” Emerson emphasized the contributions of alliance and partnership to peace and stability, invoking contemporary as well as historic examples. “While one nation can win a war, it takes many nations to maintain the peace,” he said. “Seven decades ago, it might have been almost inconceivable that a EuropeanAmerican partnership this strong would have risen from the ashes of World War II. And today we see that no one nation can make a real difference by acting alone. Instead we need a collective response, whether we are talking about climate change, the security of Ukraine, the energy stability of Europe, peace in the Middle East, combating the threat of disease like the deadly Ebola virus, or creating a framework that will sustain economic growth well into this century, like the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement that the U.S. and the European Union are currently negotiating.” The ambassador described the U.S. presence in Europe as essential to national security and American foreign policy. “As transatlantic allies and partners, we

Capt. Spanky’s adventure to Cologne After taking a small hiatus during the holidays, I am back once again to share with you my most recent adventure to Cologne, Germany. I had the need to leave the confines of our home and stretch my paws into the world, so the humans and I decided to venture off to Cologne and see what new experiences we could indulge ourselves in. The first thing we had to check out was the towering 516-foot cathedral looking over the people in the city, as if it were a father weathered by time, guarding the hundreds of ambitious pups scurrying at its feet. The detail in the architecture was enchanting; the building was

made of engravings depicting a story that refused to erode with the world around it. The stained glass within acted as a filter, turning dull light into a cascade of color, dancing from wall to wall within the religious palace. It was all so breathtaking that by the time we had finished embracing the culture and history locked within this masterpiece, we were ready to go home to plan our next exciting trip. While my time today has finished, there are always new things to experience. Go off and explore the untold stories locked in time, and come back to share your adventure with me. I look forward to hearing from you.

PT failure is more than an Airman’s problem by Maj. Onnie Retkofsky U.S. Air Forces in Europe The last Monday of 2014 I reported to the Fitness Assessment Cell to complete my annual physical training test, along with many others. As we weighed in, got measured and paired up, I found myself partnered with a young Airman. We completed our pushup portion and moved on to sit-ups. As her turn finished and the physical training administrator began recording scores, panic ensued. I had counted 34 sit-ups, and 38 was the minimum they required. Desperation consumed the Airman, and she asked, “Can you please just say 38?” I was surprised and saddened by the request, but at the moment all I said was, “No, I can’t do that.” I reported 34 sit-ups, and the test continued. Afterward, I pulled the Airman aside and lectured her on the basics of integrity and maintaining standards. As I walked away I wanted to offer my help, but my first thought was to let her supervisor handle the rest.

I have since regretted that decision. I spoke to a member of the Fitness Assessment Cell staff after I lectured the Airman and was told this was not an isolated incident, and it occurs throughout all ages and ranks. I was further disheartened. I see this as more than an individual’s failure to maintain minimum standards. I also see this as a failure of our community. I would like to believe that if someone had taken an interest in this individual and given her a pre-test two or three months ahead of time, this situation could have been avoided. Some argue this is an individual responsibility, and the Air Force should get rid of those who will not maintain standards. I think there are exceptions to that line of reasoning. The first exception would be for younger Airmen. I have trained 19and 20-year-olds who did not know how to operate a treadmill or had not eaten anything green since basic training. Most do not understand the effects a desk job can have on overall health. We recruit from a society that is

predominantly out of shape, and though our young troops are motivated and eager, many are still learning to take care of themselves in a new environment. They need consistent, involved leadership during their first crucial years in the Air Force. The second exception involves Airmen that have historically maintained fitness standards but, due to a wide spectrum of possible issues, begin to fail. The physical body is often a place where the challenges of life manifest themselves. When personal issues begin to overwhelm an individual, their health and fitness levels can and likely will suffer. As members of the military, we are continuously transplanted from one base or state to another. We are broken away from our families and community. Therefore it is imperative we take care of one another. If we notice a co-worker beginning to struggle physically, as Airmen we are obligated to offer support and ensure they receive effective assistance somehow. My intention in writing this article was to offer my assistance. First, to

the Airmen who just failed their PT test and to anyone else who has just failed or thinks they are in danger of failing. I would also like to help anyone scared of taking the PT test. This test is a minimum standard, and I believe everyone can pass it if properly motivated and trained. I am a certified personal and group trainer and a trained physical training leader. I will be teaching a free four-week course called “Emerging Warrior” at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Southside Fitness Center for anyone interested in improving their current physical condition and learning more about overall wellness. If you can dedicate yourself to change, instruction and hard work, you can pass your PT test and learn how to maintain that standard throughout the year. It is my goal to help improve our health and wellness across the KMC in 2015. Through education, community support and dedication we can all finish this year stronger and healthier.

times, potentially at a traumatic point in their lives.” Wright described the consolidation of the resource center under the special troops battalion as an ideal means of operationalizing O’Connor’s vision for combating sexual violence. “Operationalizing this under a battalion was an ideal way not only to meet the CG’s strategic goals but to align our structure with business practices and priorities across the command,” she said. “He has made this one of his top priorities, and this approach made the best sense. It’s a leadership issue, not merely a staff process.” The facility strives to ensure Soldiers

are provided with the most up-to-date education and training in order to help meet the Army’s goal of eliminating sexual assault from its ranks. “The resources center will staff professional and knowledgeable victim advocates for the purpose of victim advocacy services,” said Sgt. 1st Class James Watson, a sexual assault response coordinator with the 21st TSC. “Along with that, we will ensure that all units are trained with the most up-to-date curriculum to ensure prevention at the lowest level is the focus.” The facility employs a sexual assault response team consisting of various personnel capable of providing victims with a comprehensive,

sensitive and coordinated system of intervention and care. Those utilizing the SHARP RC have the ability to receive and have access to all these services at one location, Watson said. “While victims will still be required to go to Landstuhl for medical treatment, all other services, such as CID, special victims counsel, behavioral health and victim advocacy services, can be completed at the new facility,” he said. Watson added that though the facility’s main focus is the victims, it also can be used by other SARCs, victim advocates and tenant commands to gather information or resources for their individual programs.

“We can assist in providing trained instructors for unit-level required training as well as a training location when other venues are not available,” he said. O’Connor said this center is important for the overall health of the Army family. “There is no place for sexual assault or sexual harassment in the Army, or anywhere else for that matter,” he said. Anyone wishing to receive the services provided by the SHARP RC can do so by visiting the facility on Sembach Kaserne, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or by calling the 24-hour hotline at 0631-413-7280.

The Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Speyer presents “Titanic — The Exhibition: Real Discoveries, True Fates,” until June 28. The main attractions of this exhibition are the almost 250 original artifacts that have been salvaged from the seabed through a series of deep sea expeditions. These objects include personal belongings of the passengers, furnishings and equipment of the ship and parts of the doomed ship itself. Alongside these original objects, lavish stagings and reconstructions of ship compartments invite visitors into an impressive journey of discovery of a bygone era. Exhibitions regarding this subject have previously been held in Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. Speyer is, however, the first German venue for this newly arranged exhibition, which displays original objects taken from the Titanic’s wreckage. Starting with a consideration of the world around the year 1900, major aspects of this exhibition include the presentation of the construction of the ship, its furnishings and equipment, as well as content devoted to the class differences of the passengers on board, the series of events that occurred leading to its disastrous demise and the manner in which, years later, the objects presented in this exhibition were salvaged from the seabed. Additionally, the Historical Museum of the Palatinate devotes part of the exhibition to

the biographies of the German passengers on board as well as to the circumstances that have led to the unprecedented myth, which persists to his day, surrounding the doom of this supposedly unsinkable ship. Still, today, over 100 years after its doomed maiden voyage, the name of this ship is at once synonymous with inconceivable tragedy and a sustained shock to humanity’s belief in almighty technology. After considerable research, it was only in 1985 that the location of the shattered wreck could be pinpointed. In the course of many expeditions, carried out between 1987 and 2010, many relics of this catastrophe were salvaged and brought up from the seabed 3,800 meters below sea level. Besides the presentation of pieces of the actual ship, such as rivets, lamps and tiles, accouterments, such as tableware and glassware, as well as private objects, such as personal papers, jewelry and personal body care products, are all on show at this exhibition. An accompanying booklet is available for this exhibition. During the course of this exhibition, the Historical Museum of the Palatinate is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Further information pertaining to this exhibition and its considerable accompanying program can be found at www.titanic-dieausstellung.de.

Freinsheim offers red wine hike Jan. 23 to 25 by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


resh air, culinary specialties and fine red wines are what visitors can expect Jan. 23 to 25 during Freinsheim’s red wine hike, according to organizers. The annual red wine hike in the winegrowing community of Freinsheim is known as the first highlight of the year in the Palatine vineyards. The event will start at 6 p.m. Jan. 23 with a torch hike leading from the town hall along the wine hiking path to a vineyard called “Musikantenbuckel.” Interested participants will meet near the Baroque town hall that dates back to 1732. Torches will be available near the town hall and at a winery near the train station. On Jan. 24 and 25, guided tours will start at 11:30 a.m. at the historical town hall. Wine Princess Anne II and a local music group will welcome hikers who want to join the guided tours. On all three days of the event, local vintners will present various red wines, such as Dornfelder, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Saint Laurent and Spätburgunder, in their wineries and at stands. To be able to warm up in this cold weather, Glühwein (heated, red wine spiced with cloves and cinnamon sticks) will also be served. During the event, visitors can taste a variety of food specialties, including potato soup with dampfnudeln, meat dumplings with horseradish sauce, potato dumplings with mushrooms, bratwurst, grilled ham, cheese spätzle with red wine onions, goulash soup, pea soup, fresh oysters and scampis with spaghetti. Desserts will include chocolate cake with red wine plums, red wine cake and red wine muffins. Food and beverage stands will be open from 6 to 10 p.m. Jan. 23, and 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 24 and 25. The Freinsheim soccer club will sponsor a 10-kilometer folks run starting at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 25

Know dangers of teething remedies When a baby’s first set of teeth begin to break through the gums it is referred to as teething. Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. However, it is not uncommon for teething to begin between 3 and 12 months of age. Some babies become fussier than usual when they are teething. This may be because of soreness and swelling in the gums before a tooth breaks through the gums. So, how can you help your baby be more comfortable while teething? This is where over-the-counter pain relievers come into play, such as Anbesol, Hurricaine, Orajel, Baby Orajel and Orabase. These items should be applied to dry gums in order to be effective. This may become quite challenging, because most babies salivate more during teething and may end up ingesting the gel.

Swallowing these medications could be harmful to a baby. These topical pain relievers contain a local anesthetic called benzocaine. According to the American Dental Association, benzocaine has been associated with a rare, but serious, and sometimes fatal condition called methemoglobinemia. If this condition develops, the amount of oxygen carried through the blood stream is greatly reduced. Due to this association, the Food and Drug Administration recommends not to use benzocaine products for children younger than 2, except under the advice and supervision of a health care professional. Also, be aware of products that claim to be all natural. Back in 2010, the FDA recalled Hyland’s Teething Tablets, which claimed to be 100 percent natural. Analysis of this product showed inconsistent amounts of bella-

donna, a substance that can cause serious harm at large doses. In July 2011, the tablets were re-introduced with a

new formula; however, the product still contained belladonna. Even if medication claims to be “all natural” it does not necessarily mean they are safe. The use of Children’s Tylenol is acceptable, but be sure to use the appropriate dose for your child. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the safest approach to managing your infant’s teething pain, as well as soothing their tender gums, is the use of a teething ring chilled in the refrigerator. Also, using a clean finger to gently rub or massage the baby’s gums for 2 minutes at a time may bring temporary relief from teething pain. For any question regarding your child’s oral health and development, contact the Ramstein Dental Clinic at 479-2210. (Courtesy of 86th Dental Squadron)

American Sniper U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter. Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.”

However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different

Things to do in Kaiserslautern & Ramstein Visit


for fun and interesting things to do in the KMC and throughout Germany.

If you are looking for things to do off base with your family around Kaiserslautern, Ramstein and Baumholder, or you are looking for places to visit from the KMC while you are stationed here, then look no further! MilitaryInGermany.com has tips, recommendations and information just for you, written by Americans living in KMC, ex-pats and Kaiserslautern locals to help you to get the very best of your time here. Have some ideas of your own? Visit our “Share” page and submit your own ideas to be added to the website. This is your site! Let us help you make the most of your time here. • Places to visit near the KMC • What’s going on around the KMC • Life in Germany Introduction to KMC The KMC is a community of Americans living in and around Kaiserslautern, who provide support to the United States armed forces. The KMC is home to around 53,000 people, including armed forces service members, Department of Defense civilians and their families. The KMC is the largest U.S. military community outside of the states. The KMC and surrounding areas have some lovely sights and things to do if you are going to be stationed here or if you are visiting friends or family on base, such as:

The German Wine Road If you’re interested in a glass of wine, or two, or three and would like to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery Germany has to offer, why not take a trip down the German Wine Road where there’s a string of gem-like wine villages, castle ruins and fruit trees to enjoy. Bad Dürkheim - This city is the site of the annual sausage market, known as the Wurstmarkt, in September. Despite its name, the market is actually the biggest wine festival in Germany. The market takes place in front of the world’s largest wine barrel, which was actually made according to barrel making principals. It could hold millions of gallons of wine, but instead holds a

The Pfälzer Wald Nature Park This is the largest wooded area in Germany and is right on your doorstep. With this area of Germany having the mildest climate, this wildlife park is perfect for taking a nice stroll or bike ride. Covering over 12,000 square kilometers of land, it’s unrealistic to see all of it, but there are plenty of small trails for you to follow and discover some of the beautiful castles and ruins along the way.

restaurant. The large population of Americans leads to some lively nightlife with a good jazz and rock music scene. Acts from the U.S. come over regularly to perform in Kaiserslautern’s numerous clubs. Keep yourself informed by checking back regularly with our “Events” section on this site. There are many cultural activities, including a year-round offering of operas, musicals and plays. Two museums house a rich collection of Palatinate history, folklore and art, and there is also a Beer Tankard Museum with more than 500 exhibits from the last 200 years. From April to October the city hosts a World Garden Show, including a beautiful Japanese garden and Europe’s largest dinosaur exhibition. The city also has a zoo and a downtown skating rink, and the pleasant Volkspark offers

Sunday concerts. Exploring Outside KMC There is a tremendous amount to see and do while living in this beautiful region of Germany. But perhaps you want to venture a little further afield? Visit our other city and country pages to get tips and recommendations for things to do and places to visit:
