AF changes tattoo, recruiting policy Story and graphic courtesy of Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs WASHINGTON — The Air Force announced new policies on dress and appearance with regard to tattoos as well as changes to service medical accession policy Jan. 9. These changes result from a review of Air Force accessions policies directed by Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James in 2016. “As part of our effort to attract and retain as many qualified Airmen as possible, we periodically review our accessions policies,” James said. “In this instance, we identified specific changes we can make to allow more members of our nation to serve without compromising quality. As a next step in this evolution, we are opening the aperture on certain medical accession criteria and tattoos, while taking into account our needs for worldwide deployability and our commitment to the profession of arms.” Authorized tattoos on the chest, back, arms and legs will no longer be restricted by the “25 percent” rule, while tattoos, brands or body markings on the head, neck, face, tongue,

lips and scalp remain prohibited. Hand tattoos will be limited to one singleband ring tattoo, on one finger, on one hand. The hand tattoo change ensures the ability to present a more formal military image when required at certain events and with dress uniforms. Current Airmen with existing hand

tattoos that were authorized under the previous policy will be grandfathered in under the old policy standards. A recent review of Air Force field recruiters revealed almost half of contacts, applicants and recruits had tattoos. Of these, one of every five were found to have tattoos requiring review

Daniel Olivares, 86th Operations Support Squadron first sergeant. “There’s definitely a lot of great people that are will-

A cake is displayed at the 2016 Angel Tree ceremony Nov. 8 on Ramstein. This year 233 Air Force, Army and Navy Families received Angel Tree donations, affecting more than 400 children’s lives.


The KMC donated in force this past holiday season, raising approximately $24,000 for the annual Angel Tree program Nov. 8 to Dec. 21. The Angel Tree program was able to provide holiday financial assistance to 233 military families and 410 military children. This was the most money

ever raised for Ramstein’s Angel Tree program. The Angel Tree program is a First Sergeant Council outreach initiative that provides monetary assistance to Airmen and their families during the holiday season. “On behalf of the KMC first sergeants, I would like to thank all those who donated to this year’s Angel Tree campaign,” said Master Sgt. Timothy Bedford, 21st Operational Weather Squadron first sergeant. “It’s phenom-

Medical units maintain preparedness through training Story and photos by Senior Airman Jimmie D. Pike 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs After the clock struck midnight on New Year’s day, many began to put their new resolutions into motion. For medical professionals stationed at Ramstein, their resolution was to start the year with training to maintain job proficiency. Specialized teams from the 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron came together for a first-ever training exercise in a C-17 Globemaster III on the Ramstein flightline. “We haven’t had the chance before to all work together in this capacity and train for a real-world scenario,” said Capt. Ashley Truswell, 86 AES flight nurse. “We wanted to start the year with an opportunity to prepare ourselves for future missions.” The training exercise gave personnel from the different units time to work on cohesion. “This training is amazing for us

because we get to work on interoperability, relationships, and communication,” Truswell said. “New folks in the units also have a chance to work with the different organizations, which they may not have had the chance to do so before.” By the three units participating together in a large training exercise, each organization could learn how the other two operate and adjust methods to provide a quicker and more seamless transfer of patients for real-world events. One of the most important aspects of the training was the interaction between Airmen due to the scope of their jobs. “We aren’t flyers; we are strictly operational, so we are always accompanied by aeromedical personnel” said Maj. Matthew Bracken, 86th Medical Squadron critical care air transportation team nurse. “The (critical care air transportation team) is made up of specialized physicians, to include an anesthesiologist and

success, unit leaders concluded that the exercise will continue as a quarterly training event to provide medical Airmen another opportunity to hone skills and interoperability with other units.

Paying respects to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Lane T. Plummer 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Members from around the KMC came together to pay respects to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during a remembrance in his name Jan. 13 on Ramstein. The chapel-led event honored the late Dr. King for his heroic actions in leading the civil rights movement of the 20th century. Those who attended were called upon to understand the impact he had on modern society and the inspiration he gives to many people across the U.S. today. The event saw several generations of people attend. Those in attendance witnessed personal stories from those who lived during the civil rights movement and from today’s youth, represented by those who are still in high school. The event also included gospel singing and prayer. It was a great experience because of the variety, said Senior Master Sgt. Shuntesia Dupree, 86th Airlift Wing TATTOO, from Page 1

Tattoos, brands and body markings anywhere on the body that are obscene, commonly associated with gangs, extremist or supremacist organizations, or that advocate sexual, racial, ethnic or religious discrimination remain prohibited in and out of uniform. To maintain uniformity and good order and consistent with Air Force Instruction 36-2903, “Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel,” commanders will retain the authority to be more restrictive for tattoos, body ornaments and personal grooming based on legal, moral, safety, sanitary and foreign country cultural reasons. The new tattoo policy will be effective Feb. 1. Further implementation guidance will be released in an addendum to the policy guidance. The Air Force’s periodic review of medical accession standards and advancement of medical capabilities prompted policy changes with respect to waivers concerning common conditions that have routinely disquali-

We wanted our guests to know that although Dr. King

fied prospective Airmen from service: eczema, asthma and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Waivers for eczema, asthma and ADHD currently constitute the highest volume of requests from Air Force recruiters. Additionally, current Air Force accession policy with respect to pre-service marijuana use is not reflective of the continuing legalization of marijuana in numerous states throughout the nation. “We are always looking at our policies and, when appropriate, adjusting them to ensure a broad scope of individuals are eligible to serve. These changes allow the Air Force to aggressively recruit talented and capable Americans who, until now, might not have been able to serve our country in uniform,” said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody. While medical accession standards are standardized across the services, the Air Force has modified some of its more restrictive service policy, or established specific criteria to streamline and standardize waiver processes to increase the number of qualified candidates entering service. These changes include: • Eczema: Select candi-

Certain occupational restrictions may be applied to secure personal and mission safety. • ADHD: Candidates who do not meet the standard of never having taken more than a single daily dosage of medication or not having been prescribed medication for their condition for more than 24 cumulative months after the age of 14 will be processed for a waiver if they have demonstrated at least 15 months of performance stability — academic or vocational — off medication immediately preceding enlistment or enrollment and they continue to meet remaining criteria as outlined in Defense Department Instruction 6130.03. • Asthma: The Air Force will use the Methacholine Challenge Test to provide an objective measure of candidates with an ambiguous or uncertain history of asthma. Candidates who successfully pass this test will be processed for a waiver. • Pre-accession marijuana usage: The revised policy will remove the service prescribed numerical limitations

one that has deeply touched the lives of many, says Alicia Cabrera, gospel service parish coordinator. “Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day that is set aside to rejoice in how far we have come as a world and to be empowered to keep striving for more equality for all,” Cabrera said. “His legacy assisted in providing the freedom for me to be here. My mother and my father are different races and will celebrate their 36 wedding anniversary this November. This was made possible because of the way being paved by Martin Luther King Jr.” Dr. King became instrumental in the civil rights movement and was a founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, one of six groups that led the March on Washington in 1963, where he gave one of the most iconic speeches in the 20th century, “I Have a Dream.” About 15 years after his death, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. This year, Dr. King would have been 88.

on prior use of marijuana when determining accession qualifications. In accordance with DOD standards, a medical diagnosis of substancerelated disorders or addiction remains medically disqualifying for service. Additionally, any legal proceedings associated with pre-service use will continue to be reviewed and adjudicated separately and may be disqualifying depending on the nature of the offense. The Air Force will maintain a strict “no use” policy. An applicant or enlistee will be disqualified for service if they use drugs after the initial entrance interview. The waiver process changes are effective immediately. The Air Force continues to work with the Office of the

Secretary of Defense and the other services to review existing medical accession standards to allow the highest number of qualified individuals possible to serve. “Among the fundamental qualities required of our Airmen is being ready to fight and win our nation’s wars. These accession standards ensure we maintain our high standards while bringing more consistency to our policies,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein. “As medical capabilities have improved and laws have changed, the Air Force is evolving so we are able to access more worldwide deployable Airmen to conduct the business of our nation.”

Ramstein UBO assists patients with medical insurance by Staff Sgt. Nesha Humes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

For active-duty military medical coverage, there’s Tricare. So, where do all the other Ramstein employees and families go for help with other medical insurance? The Ramstein Uniform Business Office is the 86th Medical Group’s core when dealing with medical insurance-related issues, third-party collections and medical service accounts. “Our office’s main goal is the collection of other health insurance information,” Airman 1st Class Ryan Darish, 86th Medical Group resource management office clerk. “When we

collect this information, we can then send the bills out to their insurance companies of the patients.” The office provides medical billing claims and services to more than 500 personnel not covered under Tricare. Some of their primary personnel include Department of Defense Dependent School teachers and Army and Air Force Exchange Service employees. “A huge misconception with our job is that once our office receives your other health insurance information that you’re all set.” Darish said. “The DD 2569 form patients fill out needs to be submitted annually.” Each patient covered by third-party insurance is required to submit and

keep form DD 2569 updated in order to verify patients can collect their medical bills. If the information is not up-to-date, UBO personnel cannot bill and collect funds from their insurance company. Therefore, the individual may be responsible for paying their own medical bills. The money collected helps facilitate the 86th Medical Group. “When we recoup the money, we’re able to buy better medicines, better equipment and make the hospital structure better to improve patient care.” said Tech Sgt. Anival Medrano, 86th Medical Group UBO NCO in charge. The UBO members say they’re continually trying to improve their

processes and programs. “At the end of the day, our job is to help the patients,” Medrano said. “And we want to give them the best customer service experience possible.” The UBO office is scheduled to host a “Third Party Collection Outreach” booth to assist in collecting and updating DD 2569 forms from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center on Ramstein. For more information, call 479-2320 or visit the UBO office from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Ramstein, Bldg. 2182, room 17. Online payments may be made in office or online at

Dental lab techs keep Ramstein smiling Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Savannah L. Waters 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Taking care of one another is essential to the Air Force mission, and the 86th Dental Squadron area dental laboratory ensures quality prosthodontics are made to prevent mishaps and restore, develop and deploy Airmen from all over Europe. Prepared for anything from standard appointments to emergencies, the 14 Airmen assigned to Ramstein’s area dental lab fabricate retainers, mouth guards, dentures, porcelain crowns, implants and more for Airmen in 64 treatment facilities within the U.S. European Command and Africa Command areas of responsibility. The lab is able to service its sister services and hosted three Army civilians and five Army enlisted personnel from five different locations in Germany to continue their medical education during the inaugural joint U.S. Air Forces in Africa training day with EUCOM Army counterparts this past December. “This joint training day was a huge success, which sparked interest in new computer-aided design and computeraided manufacturing opportunities as well as site visits to the Army dental labs,” said Senior Master Sgt. Daniel Stellabotte, 86 DS superintendent. During the training day, there were seven laboratory demonstrations, covering removable appliances, fixed restorations and area dental laboratory submission standards. There were also two presentations from prosthodontic doctors on the use of computer-aided design and manufacturing technologies and a presentation on how to become a certified dental technician, highlight-

ing emerging new materials such as the ceramic polishing compound called zircon brite that can be used to polish all types of crown and bridge restorative materials. “Somewhere out there are people that have deployed and have a gold crown that I made in their mouth,” said Airman 1st Class Amy Jones, 86 DS dental laboratory technician who participated in the event. “Knowing that I’ve done that makes everything I’m doing worth it.” The dental lab can be a very rewarding career field as dental lab technicians grow and improve their skills. “When I gave my first set of dentures, the patient almost started crying,” said Senior Airman Jesse Gill, 86 DS dental laboratory technician. “Seeing their face light up is so satisfying and gives you a new perspective of how important you are.” Dental lab technicians work hard every day to make certain patients are

leaving with a bigger smile on their face. “I’ve been in the room when a doctor inserts something that the Airmen (dental lab technicians) have fabricated and (have seen) how it can really change a person’s attitude,” Stellabotte said. “We are helping make Airmen

deployable, but it’s also restoring selfconfidence and a better quality of life.” This year the 86 DS area dental lab will be hosting the Certified Dental Lab Tech exam. The National Board for Certification will come to Germany and proctor an exam, including a written portion and a hands-on portion that will challenge a technician’s specific specialties, whether it is in ceramics, complete dentures, crown and bridge, orthodontics, partial dentures or implants. With Ramstein serving as the host site for the first time this summer, they will offer the exam to active-duty and civilian Air Force technicians as well as Army active-duty and civilian technicians. The lab is the only one of its kind in EUCOM and is one of 10 certified dental labs in the Department of Defense. Additionally, it has a deployment rate of 98.6 percent, which is 3 1/2 percent above the Air Force standard. From fabricating hard night guards to full gold crowns, the 86 DS area dental lab brings support to Airmen and other service members around the globe one tooth at a time.

FDA: Stay away from teething gels, tablets by Dr. (Capt.) Kaitlin Lee 86th Dental Squadron It’s 2 a.m., and your teething infant has been crying, seemingly forever. You feel tired, frustrated and helpless; you wish you could give your baby something to quickly soothe the pain. Teething is a difficult time for babies and parents alike, and there are many over-the-counter remedies that may seem appealing. Unfortunately, even natural, or homeopathic, teething medications may have negative side effects. The Food and Drug Administration warns against the use of teething tablets and gels for babies, including those available for purchase at the commissary and Army and Air Force Exchange stores such as Orajel Instant Relief for Teething Pain and homeopathic options Baby Orajel Naturals and Hyland’s Teething Tablets. On Sept. 30, the FDA issued a statement recommending “consumers stop using (homeopathic teething) products and dispose of any in their possession.” The FDA also reported that “consumers should seek medical care immediately if their child experiences seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating or agita-

Some best practices to help your child cope during the theething phase include letting them chew on a cold damp washcloth or cold teething rings, or gently rubbing their gums with a clean finger.

tion after using homeopathic teething tablets or gels.” The FDA is currently investigating these issues and testing product samples. The teething tablets, in particular, have not previously been evaluated or approved by the FDA, who added that “the agency is also not aware of any proven health benefit of the products, which are labeled to relieve teething symptoms in children.” In 2012, the FDA similarly warned against the use of any medicated

teething gels for babies, recommending that “parents and caregivers not use benzocaine products for children younger than two years, except under the advice and supervision of a health care professional.” As mentioned in the statement, the issue with nonhomeopathic options is that they contain benzocaine, an anesthetic. Benzocaine can lead to a rare, but serious and potentially fatal, condition where the amount of oxygen carried through the blood stream is reduced. Warning signs of adverse

reactions can occur within minutes or hours of use, including pale-, gray- or blue-colored skin, lips and nail beds, shortness of breath, fatigue, confusion, headache, lightheadedness or rapid heart rate. If your child experiences any of these signs after using a product with benzocaine, seek medical care immediately. The Ramstein Pediatric Dental team has partnered with AAFES leadership to ensure consumers are aware of recent FDA warnings. Soon, AAFES stores worldwide, including the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center, plan to display FDA warning statements near these homeopathic teething options. Despite all the cautions, there are a few legitimately natural things you can do to soothe your child during the teething phase. Some best practices to help your child cope include letting them chew on a cold damp washcloth or cold teething rings, or gently rubbing their gums with a clean finger. The first baby teeth usually start to push through the gums between six and 12 months. A child will usually have all 20 baby teeth by the age of 3 years old. Two years of periodic teething episodes is a long time, but your pediatric dental team is here to help. If you have any questions about any of this information, contact the dental clinic at 06371-46-2210.

American dog owners stationed in the KMC may not be aware, though, that there are very specific regulations governing how you must take care of your dog while living in Germany. The German Animal Welfare Act protects the lives and well-being of all animals. In the U.S., animals are legally viewed as property. Here in Germany, though, people are seen as stewards of animals, and the requirements of the animal protection law reflect that attitude. This law is enforced by local Departments of Public Order and Polizei. You should know that violations of the Animal Welfare Act can result in fines up to €25,000 and prison sentences up to three years. The following is a summary of some of the specific requirements for how to house your dog:

• Keeping a dog in a crate is limited to a maximum of two hours total per day. • Dogs must have a minimum amount of floor space available to them based on their size. For any dog up to about 40 pounds, that would mean a minimum of 66 square feet. • If a dog is kept indoors, it must have a view of the outside. Keeping a dog in a dark room is not allowed. • If you keep your dog outdoors, there are very specific requirements for dog houses and ties. • Your dog must have at least two hours a day of contact time — playing, walks, dog school — with their owner or caretaker. • If you keep your dog penned, they must have an additional minimum of one hour per day to be allowed to exercise outside of their enclosure. • The use of any electrical device — electric fence, bark collar, etc. — is not allowed. Besides properly housing your dog, owners also need to know that excessive barking can cause you problems. There are specific quiet hours,

typically from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. daily, when barking is of special concern. In general, dog owners must ensure their dog’s barking or whining does not last more than 10 consecutive minutes or more than 30 minutes total per day. When walking your dog, they must always be on a leash on public streets in housing areas. Elsewhere, you are responsible for keeping your dog under immediate control, and they must be put on a leash when other people approach. Violations of this requirement may be punished with fines up to €5,000. Besides barking and housing concerns, local Departments of Public Order receive many complaints about people walking their dogs on public streets, parks and playgrounds without picking up after them when they defecate. There is a potential health risk to people, especially children, from parasites and bacteria in fecal material. Most communities have bags available in theses area for people to pick up after their dogs. Military members who go on leave

or deploy need to know that they are still legally responsible for the care of their dog while they are away. You need to be sure that the caretaker you choose to care for your dog in your absence knows the legal requirements for that care as well. Bringing a dog into your life can be a uniquely rewarding experience. But with the joys of that relationship comes a significant commitment. Having a dog here in Germany can be a wonderful experience as you discover that dogs are welcomed in many places where they cannot go in the U.S. You should understand that these opportunities come with the expectation that you and your dog will be good citizens, following the laws of your host nation.

First marathon in Marathon: Airmen team for success Story and photo by Senior Airman Jonathan Bass 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Some say that running is a hobby. For others, it’s a passion. For a good portion of people, it’s simply a means to an end — passing their physical training test. It’s worth a guess that even those who only run to pass their PT test have dreamt of crossing the finish line after running 26.2 miles. All three female company grade officers from the 86th Maintenance Group recently crossed that achievement off their bucket lists. Captains Rachel Weiler and Michelle Harrington and 2nd Lt. Haley Janssen all accomplished their first marathon together Nov. 13. It’s poetic that their first marathon took place at the same location as the very first marathon — Athens, Greece. “I’ve always wanted to run a marathon,” said Harrington, 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Aircraft Maintenance Unit officer in charge. “It’s been on my bucket list. I thought it was pretty fitting to run the original marathon.” Harrington conceived the idea while deployed, and she took it upon herself to convince Weiler and Janssen. According to legend, in 490 B.C., after the Greeks won a battle against the Persians, a messenger named Pheidippides, pronounced “Feh-dipih-dees,” ran from the battlefield at Marathon, Greece, to Athens — 26.2

Haley Janssen, all officers assigned to the 86th Maintenance Group, pose for a photo in front of a C-130J Super Hercules propeller Jan. 6 on Ramstein. The three company grade officers completed their first marathon in November in Athens, Greece, the location of the very first marathon ever run.

miles — with word of the victory. He said, “Nike!” meaning “victory,” and then collapsed and died. “(Harrington) did not fail to remind us of that,” said Weiler, 86 MXG maintenance operations officer in charge. Their goal was to not die, said Harrington. With the idea born, their training began. Janssen, 86th Maintenance Squadron maintenance flight officer in charge, explained that she joined the endeavor because the Athens marathon is the pinnacle of all marathons, and by doing this one, she wouldn’t ever have to do another. Training with a 5K run every other

day and longer runs on the weekend, Janssen and Weiler paired up to get ready, while Harrington trained by herself at her deployed location. “We did the Ramstein Halfmarathon in preparation, which was good because you go up and down hills,” Weiler said. The team traveled to Athens, their minds full of anticipation and excitement, combatting the mental stress of running the distance. Since the team was staying in Athens, they knew where the end was, and that information was vital to keeping their mental state positive. “You start in Marathon and end in Athens,” Weiler said. “So it wasn’t

like this big loop. There is a goal; at the end of that road is the finish.” The team wasn’t ready for the hill which awaited them, however. For half the race, the team worked up a meandering hill. “You just try to find your pace,” Weiler said. “It’s a mental game, but the hill was steeper than I ever thought it could be.” The hill started 6 1/2 miles in and lasted for 13 miles. “I think at the half point for me I thought, ‘Well that really sucked, I guess I have to do that again,’” Janssen said. Janssen added that her desire to finish before dark pushed her to finish the hill. “There’s not a lot of training you can do for that,” Harrington said. Once they summited though, the rest was downhill — literally. “To finally see the stadium, you had to finish strong,” Janssen said. “It was a pretty awesome feeling.” Upon finishing, Weiler looked for her cohorts. “The first thing I did was start looking for people,” Weiler said. “And (Harrington) was waiting, so we got our medals together, which I thought was really important.” With the common goal of finishing together, their individual times didn’t matter. They weren’t done until the last one crossed the line. With this adventure crossed off their lists, a shower and a nap was as much a reward as the medals around their necks.

7th MSC supports 21st TSC, 4th ID for operation Atlantic Resolve Story and photos by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th Mission Support Command Public Affairs GARLSTEDT, Germany — More than a half dozen Army Reserve Soldiers and civilians from the 7th Mission Support Command are providing logistical and operational support to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s forward command post during reception, staging, onward movement and integration of the 4th Infantry Division’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team as part of U.S. Army Europe’s operation Atlantic Resolve Jan. 3 to 23. The 3/4 ABCT will deploy for nine months to multiple U.S. partner nations and conduct training exercises to maintain readiness and achieve U.S. Army Europe’s goal of persistent deterrence and defense of NATO countries and allies in Eastern Europe.

“(The) main role of the 7th is to provide support to the Alaska (Structures) tent system and Alaska (Structures) generators,” said Sgt. 1st Class Darrel Raville, 7th MSC plans NCO at the forward command post. The tent system is being used as the forward command post for the 21st TSC’s operations. The 7th MSC provided three generators, three tents, two Humvees, multiple tables, chairs and three environmental control units that regulate heat or air-conditioning. The secondary role of the 7th MSC team is to observe the forward command post operations to incorporate lessons learned in the future, Raville added. “We want to bring the experience and knowledge back to the 7th for us to successfully incorporate into our annual training event with possible See AtlAntic ReSolve, Page 11

The KMC received snowfall of approximately 3 1/2 inches in one day, making it the largest snowfall in a 24-hour period in the area since 2009. Local weather studies report that the state of Rheinland-Pfalz receives an average of 24.4 inches of precipitation each year.

Staff Sgt. Brian Leddon, 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron missions systems craftsman, operates a de-icing vehicle Jan. 10 on Ramstein. More than 3 inches of snow fell in the area, prompting snow removal operations throughout the base. The operations included plowing snow, de-icing aircraft and applying salt to roads and walkways.

real-world applications in the event of (forward command post) deployment,” Raville said. Observing the 21st TSC’s military decision-making process and interaction and integration of the 4th ID Soldiers were also areas of focus for the 7th MSC Soldiers. “I am concentrating more on the battle rhythm process to ensure smooth transition of information,” said Lt. Col. Aaron Justice, 7th MSC forward command post team officer in charge. “So the 21st TSC staff and unit (liaison officers), including 4th ID, are working together to support operation Atlantic Resolve in support of 3/4 ABCT RSOM/I.” Raville and Justice complimented the support of the German Army, who host the forward command post on their logistical base, and they highlighted their close working relationship with the 21st TSC Soldiers. Both the 7th and 21st TSC Soldiers said the entire experience was beneficial. “It’s been working great,” said Staff Sgt. Raymond Mandap, 21st TSC generator mechanic and motor sergeant, about his work with Raville as they worked as a team to add oil to the generators. “We set everything up,” Mandap said. “We set up tents and generators and (the) forward command post.” The 7th MSC also had civilians on site to provide computer and communication support to the 21st forward command post. The arrival of the 3/4 ABCT marked the beginning of U.S.based armored brigades deploying to Europe for back to back rotations for a continuous presence.

Crumble Feta cheese. Chop walnut, basil, parsley and garlic. Put lemon zest, feta cheese, salt and pepper, walnut, basil, olive oil, parsley and garlic in a bowl. Stir. Let this rest for 20 minutes to 1 hour. Boil the tortiglioni in salted water. Take out at the al dente stage. After straining tortiglioni, keep 1/2 cup of the boiling water. Cut chicoree in half. Remove the core of the chicoree. Cut in ¾ inch pieces and put aside. Season lamb filet with sea salt and not too fine ground pepper. Roast the filet in peanut oil for 5 minutes on medium to high

heat. Wrap in aluminum foil and let it rest. Put onions in the leftover peanut oil pan. Let them simmer in the pan for two minutes. Add more heat as you put in the chicoree. Let it roast for 1 minute. Turn the heat off. Drain fluid from the foiled lamb. Pour into the chicoree and onion pan. Slice lamb in an angle so that the slices look a little larger. Return to aluminum foil. In the chicoree and onion pan, add half of the pesto sauce and the reserved boiling water. Add Tortiglioni. Mix all together. To plate, make a bed of the Tortiglioni noodle mixture. Put sliced lamb on top. Garnish with remaining pesto sauce, parsley and basil. The most important part of this recipe is to give the pesto sauce time to allow the flavors to mix with each other before going on with the recipe.

Story and photos by 1st Lt. Mark H. Schneider 16th Sustainment Brigade Public Affairs ZAGAN, Poland — Maj. Gen. Gamble and Command Sgt. Maj. Delgado, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, reviewed the progress of the reception, staging and onward movement of an armored brigade by visiting with Soldiers from the 16th Sustainment Brigade operating tactical assembly areas and visiting

with the first Soldiers to arrive in Poland from the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division Jan. 10. “The reception, staging and onward movement process in Europe is designed not for just one brigade but for a series of brigades,” said Gamble, 21st TSC commander. “We are creating the infrastructure and defining the processes for speed of assembly and the massing of forces.” The 21st TSC tasked the 16th Sust. Bde. with managing the movement of

the 3rd ABCT, 4th ID as they arrived in Europe. Soldiers flew over their vehicles and equipment, which were hauled by rail from Bremerhaven, Germany, and landed in different locations in Poland. Planning for these complex movements required precise timing to connect the Soldiers with their M1 Abrams tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles immediately in order to establish a dynamic security presence.

responsible for operating the tactical assembly areas for the 3rd ABCT, 4th ID. The services provided at the assembly areas allow the Iron Brigade to focus their attention on building combat power for multinational training exercises. Sustainers operating the tactical assembly areas from the 16th Sust. Bde. provide life-support facilities, training facilities and ranges for the Soldiers occupying the areas. By providing life-support activities, the 16th Sust. Bde. is able to keep the Iron Brigade in the rapid deployment pipeline, expediting their speed of assembly in the European theater. “Setting up the tactical assembly areas was an outstanding experience. Working with our allies from Poland and establishing this site for Soldiers from the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team is a great achievement,” said Staff Sgt. Christopher Cool, 51st Transportation Company, 18th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion motor transport operator. “We want to make sure that the 3rd ABCT, 4th ID Soldiers are unencumbered so they can hit the ground running when they arrive and not have to worry about life support activities.” After visiting with Soldiers in the assembly areas, Gamble and Delgado inspected M1 Abrams tanks arriving to the railhead in Swietoszow, Poland, and visited Soldiers working in the motor pool. “This is what it is all about, tanks in motor pools and Soldiers on tanks working.” Delgado said. “A strong Europe.” Nine-month rotations of armored and aviation brigades are essential to support NATO’s shift from assurance to deterrence. With each rotational force coming into Europe, the U.S. Army sharpens its speed of assembly through improved logistical processes.

Germany celebrates Fasching with masquerade balls, parades

Photo by Stefan Layes

During a “Prunksitzung,” meaning “pomp session,” performers hold funny speeches or present dances. Ramstein’s Fasching association, Bruchkatze, is scheduled to have its first fun session at 7:31 p.m. Jan. 28 at Haus des Buergers in Ramstein.

by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs People who like to dress up in fancy dresses or costumes and be somebody else have until Feb. 28 to do so. They can do it as long as Germany celebrates its “fifth season” or “crazy season.” Different areas in Germany have different names for this season of disguise, being crazy and wild, cheering up and having fun. In the Pfalz it’s called “Fassenacht” or “Fastnacht,” in Bavaria it’s “Fasching” and in the Cologne area it’s “Karneval.” The fifth season officially begins at 11:11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month. Carnival clubs and associations start preparations for all kinds of events, including street parades taking place during the fifth season that ends on Ash Wednesday, which is March 1 this year. Traditionally, in the first week of the new year, carnival clubs crown their new Fastnacht princess or prince. The mayor hands them the keys to the city or village and thus the executive power, allowing Fasching celebrations to officially start. Typical celebrations and events include the “Maskenball,” “masquerade ball”; “Faschingstanz,” “Fasching dance”; “Kinderfasching,” “children’s fasching party”; and “Prunksitzung”, “pomp session.” They are announced on signs and posters, in advertisements and newspapers or through social media. The fifth season features parties, dances, funny speeches and parades. Visitors of public Fasching events are encouraged to dress up in costumes. If they are not in disguise, they have to pay a higher admission fee when entering Fasching events in community halls, culture centers, sports gyms and other facilities. Some organizations conduct best costumes contests and hand out prizes. Customarily, women do not need a male escort when going to a Fasching

dance. It’s even up to them to ask the men for a dance, and the men better not say no. A typical Fasching event is the “Prunksitzung,” which literally translated means “pomp session.” Carnival associations usually sponsor and organize this event. Amateur comedians hold, in their local dialect, humorous speeches spiced with sarcasm about local happenings, people or politics. In between speeches, carnival club members sing and present dances. A committee consisting of a president and 11 counselors watch the session from their seats in the back of the stage. After each performance, committee members present medals to the performers. Fastnacht has its origin in ancient

times, when people realized that with the start of a new year, spring would soon be on its way. To make it possible for spring to arrive, the demons of winter had to be chased away. Therefore, people dressed in evil-looking costumes and masks. They danced in the streets looking like devils, demons and witches and used noise-making devices, bells and drums to scare away the winter ghosts. Through the centuries, the season developed into a Christian ritual. The literal translation of the word “Fastnacht” is “night of fasting.” Today, it’s the time of merriment and laughter preceding Lent, the 40-day period before Easter. The word “Karneval” also refers to the fasting period. The Latin expression

“carne vale” means “farewell meat” and describes the time of celebrations before Lent, when people have to renounce meat, opulent meals and festivities. The main days of the carnival season are “Altweiberfasching,” meaning “old women’s fasching,” on Feb. 23, Rose Monday on Feb. 27 and Fat Tuesday on Feb. 28. Rose Monday is known for colorful parades with floats, musicians, dancers and walking groups in creative costumes going through towns. The Ramstein Carnival Association Bruchkatze will sponsor the biggest parade in the Westpfalz area Feb. 28 and offer its first pomp session at 7:31 p.m. Jan. 28 at Haus des Buergers in Ramstein.

Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage comes out of self-imposed exile and must race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an allnew group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Starring Vin Diesel and Nina Dobrev. Live By Night (R) It is the roaring `20s, and Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve, and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules, and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa’s steamy rum-running underworld. Starring Ben Affleck and Elle Fanning.
