USAFE switchboard operators connect, assist globally Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs “U SAFE switchboard operator, how may I help you? ” is a short phrase many who have called the U .S. Air Forces in Europe consolidated switchboard may be familiar with. The 40 members of the Telephone Operations Facility, located on Ramstein, work 24/ 7, 365 days a year to service not only Ramstein and U SAFE but Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines and U .S. State Department personnel all over the world. The facility directly impacts 14 bases located outside of the continental U .S., though they have the ability to connect callers from base to base regardless of location. They receive approximately 1.5 million calls per year. With such a busy j ob, the operators keep their main priority in mind: customer service. o eti es e re one of t e first i ressions someone has when they are stationed overseas,” said Pia-Maria Sakuda, 86th Communications Squa dron chief of telephone operations. “( Newcomers) will call us and ask where certain things are or who they should talk to, so we keep a level of professionalis to ens re t eir first i ression is ositi e There should be no q uestion about perfect customer service.” In line with their customer service priority, Sakuda said the average answer time for 85 percent of the DREAM, from Page 1

Or was it unrealistic? ” The event also included a musical performance by Angela McMullen, an inspirational dance by Tech. Sgt. Janelle Ramsey, 86th Aeromedical Evacuation Squa dron, and a speech by Solomon U do-Aka, a Ramstein ig c ool fres an o on first place in an oratorical speech contest. U do-Aka’s speech focused on K ing’s works that he performed in an effort to better the lives of others that continue to inspire change. In his speech, U do-Aka said K ing’s life represented service to others and de otion to ac ie e ent t at in enced the lives of those he touched

calls they receive is less than one second. During busier hours, the maximum answer time is four seconds. Because the operators speak with people around the world on a daily basis, they speak nine different lang ages in total and are re ired to e ostl ent in a minimum of three. “I speak three languages: German, Italian and, of course, English, ” said Christel Piscione, 86th CS consolidated switchboard operator. “I can also speak

a little bit of French, but j ust enough for basic communication.” Because the operators work consistently througho t t e ear a da said it is i ortant to find an efficient a to sc ed le eac erson s s ifts “I adj ust the shift schedule based off of the call traffic al e a da said t3 e recei e t e most calls so we need the most people. At seven in the morning we start with fewer people, and throughout the day, more and more people come in. We typically have two people in the middle of the night to ensure the switchboard is constantly manned.” Piscione said her favorite part of the j ob is talking to people and being able to provide assistance. Operators at the U SAFE consolidated switchboard all understand the importance of what they do and take great pride to provide q uality service, Sakuda explained. “We are not employed ( by civilians) , so that’s what makes us uniq ue, ” Sakuda said. “We are here to ultimately support the military, and for that reason, I know we’re important. The military has bases in less civiliz ed areas, so we become especially useful in those cases because we can connect to anyone. We are supporting Europe, but we are not limited.” The consolidated switchboard operators are the middlemen who can connect callers to more than 30, 000 telephone numbers. Though it may seem like a simple process, they make the little connections, which in turn form a strong connection between allied partner nations all over the world.

Davis echoed similar sentiments as he contemplated K ing’s dream. “When you don’t have a lot of t ings o ll find o rself drea ing about everything,” Davis said. “Our dreams are tied to our purpose in life, and it’s extremely important for each of s to f lfill t at r ose de eloping and pursuing such important dreams like Dr. K ing.” Davis encouraged the audience to not be afraid to dream the impossible. The event ended with closing remarks from Brig. Gen. Jon T.

L RMC has treated more than 90, 000 wounded and ill service members and civilians from Afghanistan and Iraq . Combat operations, combined with rapid aeromedical evacuation capabilities, created a complex mili-

tary trauma system in which L RMC serves as the sole link between “downrange” care and subseq uent longterm care in the U nited States and other Coalition nations. As a result, L RMC is often

Three U .S. citiz ens recently released from detention in Iran arrived at L andstuhl Regional Medical Center via Ramstein late evening Jan. 17 and have begun their reintegration process. Trained and highly-capable military health professionals at L RMC are evaluating their condition, providing any necessary medical care and assisting in their recovery process. There is no pre-determined amount of time involved in the reintegration process. The L RMC team is sensitive to what the patients have been through and will proceed with their reintegration at a pace in which they are comfortable. The ultimate goal is to help the returnees j oin their families and society as they continue their path of recovery from their ordeal.

“My staff and I share in the excitement to welcome these Americans to L andstuhl Regional Medical Center, where we are honored to care for them, ” said Col. James L aterz a, L RMC commander. “Our team is focused on determining their medical needs in a safe environment to assist them on their road to recovery.” Each returnee initially received a full medical assessment, to ensure that any acute needs were immediately addressed, L aterz a explained. From there, a deliberate reintegration rocess egan s ecificall designed to suit each individuals’ personal needs. The process includes foral str ct red riefings and will allow each returnee to speak with the medical team about any other issues.

Watch me touch, watch me go Airmen land a Ramstein C-130J Super Hercules on the runway as they conduct a touch-and-go landing Jan. 14 on Ramstein. Airmen from the 37th Airlift Squadron transport troops and supplies across a variety of airfields and must practice the touch-and-go to ready them for any situation that may arise during landing. A touch-and-go allows Airmen to train on their ability to land and react to “emergency� situations and familiarizes pilots with their aircraft. Constant training ensures Airmen are able to respond anywhere they are needed.

to Dinuba, California, a small town about 30 miles southeast of Fresno, and the place where Perez ’s father had been working for a number of years. Perez completed high school there and then continued her education by receiving her bachelor’s degree at Fresno State U niversity in Physical Education. Her degree was a maj or milestone in her life, but her goals did not stop there. From an early age Perez wanted to j oin the Army as soon as she graduated college. “I love physical education and knew I could fall back on it if my dream of being in the Army didn’t work out for me,” Perez said. In February 2014, Perez realiz ed her dream and j oined the Army as a specialist. “I saw the good for me in j oining the Army,” she said. After attending basic and advanced training at Ft. L eonard Wood, Missouri, Pere landed at er first d t station as a truck driver for the 39th Transportation Battalion, 21st TSC. She qui ckly changed her position and became the driver for Command Sgt. Maj . Rodney Rhoades, the senior enlisted advisor for the 21st TSC. Perez was promoted to sergeant in November 2015. The normal progression for a specialist to be promoted to sergeant is 36 months. “Sgt. Perez is an outstanding NCO who will go as far as she wants to in the Army,” Rhoades said. “I am very proud of this milestone that she has reached so qui ckly. Her promotion to sergeant within 21 months again shows how committed she is to the Army and to her career.” Perez credits reaching this milestone, along with all others she has accomplished, to the strong family ties she has developed throughout the years. “I believe that love for my family is the most important aspect in my life, because they give me unconditional support. Regardless of the time or occasion, my family has always been there for me, ” Perez said. “Every little step or big goal I have achieved is thanks to the education and support my family has given me.”

Kaiserslautern American Perez feels proud to serve as a Soldier in the 21st TSC, and says she could not be in a better place. She views her Army peers, mentors and leaders as her second family, and she brings the same values to her military family that she learned growing up, including respect, loyalty and hard work. Just as Perez considers her family her backbone of strength, respect and love, she feels that as an NCO she now has the opportunity to be the backbone for those Soldiers she hopes to soon support. “I feel lucky to have two families,” Perez said. “As a leader, I will carry on the traditions, customs and courtesies of the U .S. Army. I want to give the Army my motivation, dedication and knowledge to support our mission on a daily basis. I know I have a long way to go, but I will get there.” Another aspect of Perez is that she has been playing soccer since she attended elementary school in Mexico. When she became a U .S. citiz en, she continued playing for the soccer team in Dinuba. She has continued her z est for soccer by j oining the TSG K aiserslautern Frauenfussball, a local women’s soccer team. “I love to play soccer. I love the teamwork, the workout and meeting new people,” Perez said. “I am also hoping to learn some German.” Pere s exi ilit o enness and desire to improve in all areas of her life help her to exceed her performance at anything she attempts. Her current plan is to be a career Soldier, to serve 20 years and continue to progress, not only for her Soldiers but for the Army mission. “I want to be in the Army long enough to lead and become a command sergeant maj or,” she said. Perez plans on taking more military classes in order to contin e to create a terrific promotion packet that continues to make her stand out above the other NCOs. “I want to build a great career so that I get promoted on my own merits, ” Perez said. “I am motivated to have Soldiers under me that I can support and assist in becoming better Soldiers themselves.”

Lentil Stew with Vienna Sausages

Lentil Stew with Vienna Sausages Ingredients (for 4 people)

4 cups of lentils, soaked the night before in water. (Allow the water to stand 1 inch above the top of the lentils.) 2 cups chopped onions 1 cup leek rings 4 large carrots finely diced 4-6 medium size potatoes peeled and diced (optional) 8 Vienna sausages or 4 pairs, whole 1 pound Kassler, whole (get it on the economy) 1 cup diced bacon 1 tablespoons margarine or ghee 6-8 cups water or stock (the water you soaked the lentils in will do nicely) 1-2 teaspoons salt (depending on how salty the Kassler is) ½ -1 teaspoon black ground pepper Use a large soup pot. Let the margarine or ghee get hot. Add diced bacon, onions, car-

rots, potatoes, leek, and lentils. Let roast until you get a nice aroma. Add 2-3 cups of liquid. Let it reduce and add more liquid. Add the Kassler. Reduce the heat and put on the lid. Let it simmer for 2 – 2 ½ hours. Stir every 15 minutes. If you don’t stir every 15 minutes gently, you will have burned vegetables and the Kassler will fall apart. Taste to make sure the taste is the level you desire. Now is the time to add a bit more spice if you like. Add the Vienna sausages 15 minutes before serving to allow them to simmer a bit. A nice side dish for this meal is Spaetzle. You can find them in your local German grocery store or refer back to the previous recipe from the January 8 edition of your Kaiserslautern American to see how to make Spaetzle from scratch. To serve, put Spaetzle on one side of a warm plate. On the other side put the lentils. Slice the Kassler in 4 equal slices and add to plate. Last, put a pair of Vienna sausages on the plate. The lentils are full of starch so they make a thick vegetable paste. It can be served in a bowl or on the plate with the meat and Spaetzle. Many Germans prefer a bit of vinegar in their lentils. You can set a bottle of vinegar on the table to meet individual taste preferences.

See you next week!

LRMC goes tobacco-free Feb. 1 Courtesy of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs Beginning Feb. 1, L andstuhl Regional Medical Center will become a tobacco-free medical campus. No smoking will be permitted on the L RMC campus, which extends to the green perimeter fence surrounding the hospital. The policy applies to all employees, patients and visitors at the hospital. Tobacco products and tobacco-related products that will be prohibited include cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco such as snuff, snus and chewing tobacco, and electronic nicotine devices such as electronic cigarettes. The new policy is being implemented in support of the Army surgeon general’s

Army Medicine Healthcare Covenant, which promotes tobacco-free living and implements tobacco-free medical campuses. The initiative is also in support of the 2020 Department of Defense goal for creating a tobacco-free workforce and installations. By becoming a tobacco-free medical campus, the U .S. Army Medical Command policy is extending the tobacco-free z ones from the current 50 feet to encompass the entire medical campus. Tobacco use and smokingrelated diseases are the leading causes of devastating, yet preventable and reversible, diseases in the U nited States. The tobacco-free living initiative is being implemented throughout MEDCOM to create a tobacco-free community that promotes the

overall health of military personnel, family members, retirees and all employees on MEDCOM campuses as well as protecting patients from second- and third-hand tobacco haz ards. L imiting tobacco use is not uniq ue to military medicine. More than 3, 700 civilian health care institutions have adopted tobacco-free campus policies, to include the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins. Federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services are also tobacco-free campuses. Within the DOD, an increasing number of Navy, Air Force and Army medical treatment facilities have already implemented tobacco-free campus policies. Despite initial concerns, the transition to a tobacco-free campus has gone smoothly and is well-accepted by the maj ority of patients, visitors and staff. The timing of the Feb. 1 initiati e is s ecific to the L RMC facilities located within the green perimeter fence immediately surrounding the hospital. Other medical facilities operated and sustained by MEDCOM in Europe are scheduled

to become tobacco free no later than May 2016. Those MEDCOM facilities include Army health clinics, Army veterinary clinics, Army dental clinics and Army Public Health Command Europe. The MEDCOM policy applies to all personnel assigned to and working for MEDCOM, to include military, civilians, contractors and local national employees. It also applies to anyone seeking health care, visitors and people from other agencies and businesses that operate within or visit MEDCOM facilities and other campuses where MEDCOM facilities reside. For service members assigned to MEDCOM, the rule also applies anytime while in uniform. For all U .S. Army MEDCOM service members and civilians who work at L RMC, the policy means they can no longer use tobacco products during the duty day. L ocal national employees will be allowed to use tobacco products during non-duty hours such as lunch breaks during the work day. Those employees, as well as visitors, will be req uired to smoke in designated areas outside the medical campus. Future designated areas in compliance with the new

Army Medical Command is taking the lead to improve the overall health for everyone in the MEDCOM family, as well for those we are honored to serve – our patients, ” said L RMC Commander Col. James L aterz a. “As medical providers, every leader and employee should become a part of this health education process by modeling healthy behaviors to everyone around them by reducing or q uitting their own tobacco use and supporting others who desire to do the same. “We want to help everyone succeed in supporting this new healthy lifestyle initiative, so we are increasing our efforts to help those who would like assistance in reducing or q uitting their use of tobacco products, ” L aterz a continued. Health care providers, health educators, tobacco facilitators and Army Wellness Center staff are all trained to support employee and patient tobacco reduction and cessation efforts.

Maintainers clean before painting, inspecting Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs “Clean before applying paint” is a direction many people may disregard during a home improvement proj ect, but they are words that are well-heeded by the members of the 86th Maintenance Sq uadron isochronal inspection section. Proper washing and painting is crucial in maintaining the aircraft assigned to Ramstein. “( It) is for corrosion prevention, ” said Tech. Sgt. Andrew K ohn, 86th MX S ISO dock coordinator. “You want to get all the grime and grit that gathered while it was out. “We don’t always land on international runways, ” K ohn added. “We ( often) land on dirt runways with rocks, so you’re going to get nicks and things wrong with your plane.” For this reason, K ohn said they wash and paint the aircraft in conj unction with the regularly scheduled ISO inspections. An ISO inspection is a scheduled, extensive examination of an aircraft to maintain its functionality and perform preventive maintenance. The inspections can

vary in time and complexity, with inspections categoriz ed as either A, B, C-1 or C-2 checks. “The C-2 check, which is the most in-depth, is what we’re coming up on right now, ” K ohn said. “Anything and everything that you have on this aircraft is going to be touched by us.” This C-2 check marks the end of an ISO inspection period of the 14 C-130Js assigned to Ramstein. After this C-2 inspection, Ramstein will not be due for another one until 2020. “For the 86th Airlift Wing, that means more reliability on the aircraft side, ” K ohn said. The inspections involve Airmen from multiple shops in the 86th MX S, but each aspect of the process adds value to getting the aircraft back into operations. “I had never heard about having to wash an aircraft, and then I got here. In my second or third week I was told I was going to wash, ” said Airman 1st Class Ryan K uiper, 86th MX S aerospace maintenance apprentice. “It’s an experience I’ll never forget, that’s for sure.” The Airmen have one day to get the entire aircraft washed. As such, K uiper said the wash day can be long and physically taxing.

“It’s cool to see the plane go from dirty to clean, ” K uiper said. Though the painting is mostly j ust touch-up spot painting, it is still an important method to prevent corrosion and extend the life of the aircraft. nce t e aircraft is as ed and ainted it t en officially goes into inspection, which is broken up into loo and fix ases “They are very in-depth inspections, ” K uiper said. “The planes get taken apart and put back together.” The ISO section typically looks for the items that o ld ca se ission sto age first t t e c ec e er thing from burned-out light bulbs to cracked airframes. “You learn how things operate, what goes wrong more than others, ” K uiper said. “During the inspection, you learn why things are more important than other things.” K uiper said the inspection is better than the wash because, though they are still on a time crunch, they are allowed more than the one day that completing the wash req uires. Each C-2 inspection takes approximately two weeks to return the aircraft to operational status, but it all begins with a wash and paint j ob.

Hold the salt, please! Courtesy of Public Affairs Office USAG Stuttgart Snow and ice are slippery hazards. De-icing salt has long been the most common way to clear snow and ice from sidewalks, roadways and driveways. While it’s convenient, there are drawbacks. Ecosystems adjacent to salted roads are often damaged by the contact. Plants are damaged or killed, water and soil is contaminated, and in severe cases, wildlife can become ill or die. Salt can also cause serious damage to lawns and gardens.

What you can do • Use as little de-icing salt as possible. • Using a small amount of de-icer before a snowfall helps reduce the amount of product needed. • On dry days, sweep up loose salt to prevent the excess being washed into the environment. • Try sand or kitty litter. • Use elbow grease — shovel quickly, use a broom and something to break any ice. In Germany, there are several re-usable salt-free abrasives available. For a list of manufacturers, visit www.blauer-engel.de/en/index.php.
