CSAF invites Airmen to hang out Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Kris Levasseur 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Airmen and spouses on Ramstein were afforded the unique opportunity to join their wingmen from five other bases around the globe to ask the chief of staff of the Air Force, Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, and his wife, Betty, questions during a video conference Jan. 16. The video chat was designed to allow Airmen the chance to have their voices heard in a small, informal setting while also affording Welsh a better look at what is on most Airmen’s minds. During the call, Airmen from Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas; U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado; F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming; Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar; and various units at Ramstein, asked the Air Force’s highest ranking leader myriad questions ranging from concerns they have about See CSAF, Page 3

iving in Germany and traveling throughout Europe is a great opportunity for Airmen and their families to experience new cultures and historic landscapes. As welcomed guests in Germany, it is our responsibility to understand and follow German policies and laws.

There has been a great deal of information circulating recently about German authorities enforcing a new standard for military members, U.S. civilian employees and their families to possess a valid stateside driver’s license in order to operate their vehicles here, with the overarching issue being what constitutes a valid license. While discussions are taking place at the appropriate levels between the U.S. Embassy and the German Foreign Office on the matter, service

U.S. Army Europe license replaces it here in Germany? The USAREUR certificate of license is only valid in conjunction with your U.S. license and does not replace it. Until the issue of whether or not expired licenses are still considered a valid basis (together with a valid USAREUR certificate of license) to operate a USAREUR-plated vehicle under the NATO SOFA Supplementary Agreement is resolved, we encourage all personnel and dependents to ensure their U.S. licenses are current. What are commanders doing to ensure the German Polizei do not issue tickets for expired U.S. driver’s licenses? The dispute of this change in policy is taking place between the German Foreign Office and the U.S. Embassy. U.S. forces authorities, including installation commanders, do not have control over the application of the German policy.

Remain calm and professional when interacting with German law enforcement. Afterward, contact your local legal office. If I am unable to renew my state-issued license, can I get a German license? This does not appear to be consistently possible in all German states. Members should speak with their local legal office before starting the process of obtaining a German driver’s license. If German police are not targeting U.S. personnel, what about reports of traffic checkpoints? According to German police, the traffic checks are not specifically targeted at U.S. personnel but rather all motorists traveling on German public roads.

86th FSS fine-tunes TV system by Airman 1st Class Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


xecuting the mission efficiently is key in maximizing capabilities of Air Force members. Airmen from the 86th Force Support Squadron have done just that by revamping their TV update process. The purpose of the TVs is to inform Airmen of different activities and classes happening around base from the fitness centers to the community center. These events can boost morale and give Airmen the opportunity to interact in the community; however, the process for ensuring

these TVs were up-to-date was inefficient. Bret Helenius, 86th Force Support Squadron marketing director, said the TV update process needed to be revised in order to save several hours of work and allow more frequent updates. “We currently have 15 TV displays at various locations on Ramstein,” Helenius said. “Previously, we had to send out one of our staff members to physically go and change the displays with external drives or CDs. “Because they’re spread out throughout the different facilities, it took hours to make a quick change,” he continued. “We identified this as

a way to become leaner and meaner, because that’s taking away time we could be promoting events and services to Airmen.” Keeping these updates relevant is important when informing the public. The new system will allow for the most up-to-date information to be displayed. “We were only updating the displays every month, because it took so long to do — about 16 to 20 hours to go out and update them each time,” Helenius said. “Essentially, it’ll take less than half an hour to update them with the new system. We are able to centrally manage the TVs through a Web-based server. The system will auto-refresh after six to

eight hours, so we don’t have to send people out to update the information.” Though the changes may seem minimal to some, the opportunity for bigger and better things are in the near future. “Eventually if we have, for example, a concert on base, we’ll be able to broadcast it live on the FSS TVs throughout the base,” he said. “The system can provide more than just static advertisements. We can have commercials and more interactive programs. This is really just the beginning of where we’re going.” By using this new system, more manhours can be put into bettering our Air Force and supporting the mission.

Air Force policies to the effects of the high ops tempo on the force and where he sees us in the future. “The last couple of years have been really tough for us,” Welsh said. “We’ve been through a furlough of our civilian work force, sequestration, an increase of operations tempo and force management, but now, we are at a turning point. These problems that we have gone through are behind us and even though we will have less resources than we were used to in the past, we are better able to handle it.” Mrs. Welsh also took questions from several spouses, but one Ramstein Airman had a very important question for her. Senior Airman Lindsay Meyer, 721st Aerial Port Squadron, wanted to know what the Welsh family does to find balance between work and home life and what they would suggest for a mil-to-mil family. “Communication is always the most important thing,” Mrs. Welsh said. “No matter what is going on, you both need to continue to talk to each other and plan your lives together.” While providing two-way dialog between Welsh and Airmen and Mrs. Welsh and the spouses was the primary purpose, the video conference was also a test-bed for more cost-effective communications efforts. “We are always going to try to figure out more and more ways to communicate with the Airmen,” Welsh said. “We are trying to focus on communication, which is particularly hard to do in a large organization like this, but new options like these

provide easier access and ultimately save time and money.” With little to no cost to the Air Force, these types of conferences can be scheduled more often, providing something invaluable to Airmen: the ability to communicate with their leaders directly and understand their perspective. “It was good to know that General Welsh is genu-

inely concerned about our well-being and have a direct line to him to be able to ask questions that matter to us,” said Tech. Sgt. William Sage, a member of the 313th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron. “We were able to ask the general more personal questions because of the small group setting, which was very different from what we are used to inside hangars during all-calls.”

Agencies come together to replace EAS Howitzer tubes Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Warren W. Wright Jr. 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs VILSECK, Germany — With the U.S. Army’s European Rotational Force in full swing and units continually rotating throughout Europe to train and work with allied partners, it is the responsibility of the Army Field Support Battalion-Germany, 405th Army Field Support Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command to make sure the equipment Soldiers will work with are ready and operational. Maintenance of the European Activity Set equipment, which stays in Europe and is issued to units training throughout the continent, takes the coordination of multiple agencies to ensure they are mission ready for future rotations throughout Europe. Recently, the AFSBn-Germany received word from the Department of the Army that the eight M-109A6 Howitzers maintained by AFSBnGermany required the replacement of their tubes prior to being operational for future use. “A message came out from DA stating that if there is any pitting within the tubes, then they require replacement,” said Curtis Dabney, support operations officer with AFSBn-Germany. “Until the tubes are replaced, we cannot fire them, because it will degrade the life expectancy of the system as well as put Soldiers’ safety at risk.” The replacement of the tubes, which is currently underway, has relied heavily on the coordination between AFSBn-Germany, the U.S. Army Tank Automotive and Armament Command, the 16th Sustainment Brigade’s 317th Maintenance Company, and the Theater Logistics Support Center-Europe’s Maintenance Activity Europe. “Normally, we have our own EAS workforce that would do the work, however, because of the manhours required and the condition of the

The MAV, along with the Army Field Support Battalion-Germany, the 16th Sustainment Brigade’s 317th Maintenance Company, and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive and Armament Command, have been tasked with the replacement of the tubes on eight European Activity Set Howitzers ensuring they are mission ready for upcoming rotations of American forces to Europe as part of the U.S. Army’s European Rotational Force.

equipment, we had to pass some of the maintenance on to the 317th, which then passed it off to the MAV,” Dabney said. In total, it takes approximately 40 hours to replace each tube from start to finish, and at more than 4,000 pounds each, it takes a skilled crew to ensure the replacement is done correctly and safely, not only for the MAV crew working on the tubes, but for the future Soldiers that will train on the system as well. “If the tube isn’t replaced properly, it can have catastrophic consequences for the crew operating it,” said James

R. Garner, logistics assistance representative from TACOM. “However, because of the experience level of the crew working on the Howitzers, I have the utmost confidence everything is being done correctly.” Up to this point, the tube replacements have been going well with little to no problems the MAV and AFSBnGermany have not been prepared for. When it comes to challenges, “there hasn’t been anything systemic,” Dabney said. “There have been some small things that happened on this day or that day, but we have the resources to resolve it. It hasn’t been a big deal.

“Every maintenance organization is driven by the logistical supply system to get repair parts,” Dabney added. “That has probably been a bigger challenge than any daily operational challenges we’ve come across. Daily operational challenges are easy to fix.” The final step in the tube replacement will be for a field artillery team to fire a test round from the Howitzers sometime in the near future. The test round will not only ensure the tubes were replaced properly, but also serve as the final replacement act, properly seating the tube into its housing.

Digging out of GTCC debt by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he convenience of a Government Travel Charge Card is it can ease the transition to a new duty station or assist during a temporary duty assignment in a different country, but if left unattended, that convenience could hurt your wallet and career. Though the use of a GTCC is restricted for official government travel expenses, debt can be accumulated if neglected, leading to a collection of non-reimbursable late fees and suspension or cancellation of the account, preventing further travel until resolved. “Upon completion of a TDY or permanent change of station, the member has five days to file a voucher to start the process of paying off their GTCC,” said Master Sgt. Kevin Hazen, 86th Comptroller Squadron section chief of financial

services. “Unfortunately, people are not doing this, causing their account to become delinquent.” By November, the 86th CPTS accounted on average more than 20 delinquency cases a month. The debt accumulated by these members as a whole totaled more than $412,000 of debt for that year. “To try and prevent this situation from occurring, we notify the members after 30 days,” Hazen said. “This is around the same time they should have received their reimbursement to pay off the card if they had not received it sooner. “We will also require constant updates depending on the individual’s squadron until the debt has been paid off,” Hazen continued. “This way we will be able to assist if a problem arises. For example, if the Airman is away for a deployment or training, they will be notified that their voucher needs to be taken care of either by

lump sum or in increments and the ways they can do so.” Though preventive measures are in place, it is the cardholder’s responsibility to be aware of how to properly use their GTCC and the regulations associated with it. “Something we hear a lot is the GTCC should be the government’s responsibility,” Hazen said. “However, it is under the cardholder’s name, meaning those late fees will be theirs to pay off, and it is their credit score taking a hit. Their command will also be notified to ensure proper actions to alleviate the debt will be taken.” Taking initiative, such as inquiring on the terms and agreements of the travel card, is the first step in preventing the accumulation of avoidable debt. For questions on the GTCC, cardholders should contact their unit’s GTCC agency program coordinator for assistance.

8 Soldiers inducted into Sergeant Morales Club by Ronnie Schelby 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Key leaders from U.S. Army Europe and the 21st Theater Sustainment Command welcomed eight new members to a prestigious noncommissioned officer leadership organization during a jam-packed ceremony Jan. 7 at Armstrong’s Club on Vogelweh. Command Sgt. Maj. David S. Davenport Sr., USAREUR senior enlisted leader, helped induct the NCOs into the Sergeant Morales Club and served as guest speaker. Maj. Gen. John R. O’Connor, 21st TSC commanding general, and Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Rhoades, 21st TSC senior enlisted leader and event organizer, participated alongside Davenport. The Sergeant Morales Club, established in 1973 by Lt. Gen. George S. Blanchard, promotes the ideals of integrity, professionalism and leadership for enlisted Soldiers. Its members are role models and enlisted leaders in the Army community. “January is designated as National Mentoring Month,” said Rhoades. “The motto is ‘Mentoring Works: Be Someone Who Matters to Someone Who Matters.’ I believe there is no better

way to honor this month than inducting these outstanding noncommissioned officers into the distinguished Sergeant Morales Club.” During his keynote speech, Davenport praised the inductees and challenged other Soldiers in the audience to strive to become a member of the prestigious club. “These NCOs being inducted today are perfect examples of fit, disciplined and welltrained Soldiers that work hard to improve their piece of the Army and take care of Soldiers and their families,” Davenport said. “Thanks for being role models and mentors to other Soldiers that make our team stronger.” The eight inductees were: Sgt. Morgan Lewis, Sgt. Michael Perry, Staff Sgt. Oved Cardenas, Staff Sgt. Ronald Murphy, Sgt.1st Class Marc Migala, Sgt. 1st Class Raymond Smith, 1st Sgt. Anthony Forker Jr. and 1st Sgt. Ryan Sattelberg. For Migala, the ceremony held special meaning. “I am honored to be following in the footsteps of prior phenomenal leaders, to be a mentor and an exceptional leader who others will follow,” he said. Sgt. 1st Class Justin Puls, senior retention operations NCO and two-year leader of the Sergeant Morales Club,

expressed pride for the new inductees. “This is a testament to fine hard work and to paying it forward,” he said. “I think about how these eight new inductees have the ability to influence 800 noncommissioned officers.” Puls, who departed for his new duty station at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, 5th Recruiting Brigade immediately after the ceremony, is also a member of the Audie Murphy Club, the equivalent to the Sergeant Morales Club in the United States. “In both clubs it’s not about us. It’s about what we as leaders and noncommissioned officers can do together,” he said. Rhoades described the inductees as ideal role models and future leaders. “The tremendous turnout

and the presence of distinguished leaders like Major General John O’Connor and Command Sergeant Major Davenport reflects the stature and relevance of the Sergeant Morales Club throughout the region,” Rhoades said. “This organization makes an enormous contribution to Soldiers, families and communities throughout Rheinland-Pfalz. It is no coincidence that Soldiers, units and leaders from Wiesbaden to Baumholder to Grafenwöhr are participating today. “The NCOs we inducted into the club today embody everything that is best in the NCO Corps and, for that matter, our Army,” Rhoades continued. “They truly are our finest NCOs and are involved leaders who make a difference in their Soldiers’ lives

Electrifying environments through timely inspections Story and photo by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


hether it’s taking an automobile in for preventative or restorative maintenance, trust is generally put in the hands of a specialist. The same can be said for the aircraft gracing Ramstein Air Base’s flightline. One group of specialists entrusted to take care of the aircraft and the personnel in them is the 86th Maintenance Squadron’s electrical and environmental systems flight. Tasked with performing preventative maintenance to ensure aircraft and personnel are safe, the electrical and environmental systems flight conducts inspections on a variety of aircraft parts. “We do major and minor inspections,” said Senior Airman Gabriel Sundstrom, 86th MXS electrical and environmental specialist. “A minor inspection can take only a few minutes to a few days, but a major one can take a couple of weeks to complete. It all just depends on an aircraft’s flying hours.” Minor inspections can include things as small and quick as checking the emergency exit lights, while major inspections include things higher on the safety list. “Something major would be an anti-skid operations check,” said Sundstrom, a native of San Diego. “When the aircraft comes in to land, they

turn it on, and it makes sure the wheels don’t lock up and throw the plane off balance.” Sundstrom said he and the other electrical and environmental specialists work on anything that has electricity running through it, but they also work on improving the environment for the Airmen working in the aircraft. Sundstrom said the electrical and environmental specialists also maintain tanks that hold liquid oxygen on the aircraft. These tanks run liquid oxygen through a series of pipes that turns it into a gas warm enough for the Airmen on the aircraft to breathe. Though the items checked vary on the severity of damage they can cause if not working properly,

Sundstrom said he thinks they all hold the same weight of importance during inspections. If there is one item, such as the liquid oxygen tanks, not functioning properly, it can delay an aircraft’s departure. That in turn can delay the arrival of troops or supplies to those who need them. “It’s all very important in the long run,” he said. “Emergency exit lights may be a quick check, but if something goes wrong with the plane, (the Airmen) can see where to go. Some things just need a more frequent check than others.” To ensure items are being inspected as often as needed, the electrical and environmental specialists depend on the Maintenance Operations Center. “The MOC makes sure everything is on a schedule,” Sundstrom said. “If something fell behind, they let us know there is still this aircraft that can go. It’s all about working together through our production supervisors at the 86th MXS and (86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron) to make sure a plane is down when it’s supposed to be or, if a plane that’s down for inspection, can be prepped if it will be done soon. It’s just a whole river of systems that needs to flow smoothly.” Just as the systems between shops are expected to flow smoothly, so are the operations of the systems on the aircraft, and the 86th MXS electrical and environmental systems flight does its part to ensure the environment and electrical systems run as smoothly as possible.

86th VRS keeps Ramstein on the road Story and photo by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


he 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron general purpose light vehicle repair flight keeps units on Ramstein ready for any mission that requires them to be behind the wheel. This fast-moving service shop is responsible for more than 1,000 government vehicles on the installation. They service approximately 20 vehicles a day that range from sedans to heavy-duty trucks. With more than 30 mechanics responding to the needs of drivers on Ramstein, it is the only vehicle readiness squadron, as opposed to a flight, in the Air Force. “The most rewarding part of this job is to see a vehicle fixed and not have it come back,” said Staff Sgt. Allen Crow, 86th VRS NCO in charge of GP light vehicles. With a packed schedule and high demand for service, the team of mechanics ensure vehicles are safe and serviceable to complete the mission that’s required of them and the number of vehicles needed to complete a mission are readily available to their customers. Customers submit work order requests to have their vehicles inspected before repair. “Our special purpose shop is a big deal to the mission at Ramstein Air

Base,” Crow said. “A couple of years ago the Frankfurt airport closed down due to snow, and we were able to remain open because of the capabilities of our snow removal equipment.” Not only does the GP light team provide safety to Airmen stationed at Ramstein, but it also expands to ensure the safety of the community. “Law enforcement vehicles that come through not only maintain the

security of the base, but also keep the Kaiserslautern Military Community safe when they respond off base,” Crow said. Teamwork is a driving factor in the success at the 86th VRS GP light flight. “With more than 30 Airmen working to keep the wheels turning, efficiency is a priority,” said Airman 1st Class Frederick Vogelgesang, 86th

VRS GP light vehicle mechanic. “Our NCOs manage the shop very well. If you ever have questions, everyone is always very helpful. This fast-paced environment has taught me a lot of patience and to not give up. I really love my job. The days go by fast, and it is nice to be challenged.” The GP light flight Airmen truly keep the wheels turning for Airmen on and off base.

Local DJs battle on Vogelweh Story and photo by Ronnie Schelby 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs The Battle of the DJs competition, which pits the turntable talents of local Soldiers from the KMC in a knockout format, is heating up. For the last three Saturdays in January, two Soldiers have squared off on the Armstrong’s Club stage, showing off their DJ ability with their decks, mixers and digital turntables. The three finalists from these weekend competitions will do battle a final time Feb. 1 to be called KMC’s top DJ during the Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers Super Bowl Party starting at 9 p.m. at the Kazabra Club. During the competition, an event hosted by Kaiserslautern Morale, Welfare and Recreation, each DJ had the chance to show off his skills over the course of two 30-minute sets with the crowd choosing the winner by applause. Delia Maldonado, business operations division marketing assistant with MWR, said the idea of a competition came up because of the huge number

of phone calls she received from Soldier DJs asking where they could spin in Kaiserslautern. “We decided to create this promotion for our Soldiers to find out what kind of talent was in our local area, and we certainly found out. We have terrific talent here,” she said. One of the recent DJ competitors was Staff Sgt. Christopher Hunt, also known as “The Big Baller,” a video teleconferencing technician for the Staff Sgt.

Capt. Spanky wants to fly I asked my twolegged machine that feeds me, “What does it feel like to fly in a C-130J Super Hercules?” I mean, that is what Ramstein does after all. Ramstein is a hub for many aircraft going to many places, and you know how I know? Because I chase after so many of them trying to lick them. I am told this is a bad idea. They say, “Foreign object debris.” They say, “Propeller danger.” I say, “Hush.” The next thing you will tell me is that the moon is not made of cheese. Well, I say let me enjoy my dreams. So dear fans, next week I will come to you with how it feels to fly in a C-130. But this week I am learning more about the aircraft, like how it can land on rough dirt strips and solid concrete ones.

It means I can hide in the bush and track it down, like that crazy mail man I go after. That’s a story for another time, but the look on his face — perfect. The C-130, in its many forms has been operational for over 40 years. That is crazy. They can also fly in any weather with their state of the art navigation systems. So, if somebody just let it snow, the C-130 could still continue the mission. I mean, I don’t like it when it’s all frozen, but the great maintenance Airmen know how to de-ice it with their big machines. So, my great human friends, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the C-130, but next week I will tell you about how it feels to fly in one.

Virtual ESD now at Ramstein by Senior Airman Brian Quintanilla 86th Communications Squadron In the past few weeks, a new application may have appeared on computer desktops. On Dec. 8, the 67th Cyber Wing deployed Virtual Enterprise Service Desk on computers throughout U.S. Air Forces in Europe. Currently, the vESD is able to diagnose and repair issues with email, network connectivity and BlackBerrys. Due to vESD being installed on the local machine, the program can even be used during a network outage to assist in diagnosing the causes of the outage. The goal of the vESD is to reduce wait times for the resolution of computer-related issues. The ESD services over 650,000 customers. This immense work load created a situation in which the call centers are overburdened. Often, there is up to a

60-minute wait simply to speak with a technician. With vESD, most issues can be resolved without ever needing to pick up the phone. Upon opening the vESD application, the program will automatically scan the machine and diagnose any problems that might exist. From this main page, customers can access links to user guides as well as an instructional video. The main screen will also provide users with three notification tabs at the top: “Email,” “Network” and “Internet.” When a user’s computer is functioning properly, all three tabs will be green. If there is an issue with any of these components, the tabs will display as amber or red. By clicking on the amber or red tabs, the vESD program will walk the user through the troubleshooting process in order to correct the issue. This process is the same as the one taken by ESD technicians over the phone.

If an issue cannot be resolved through the vESD application, a ticket will be created and routed to the appropriate work center for resolution. Users can also use the vESD to track the status of their new ticket as well as existing trouble tickets. By clicking on the “Phone” button in the top right of the vESD main page, the user will be walked through how to solve issues, such as a BlackBerry not synching, a BlackBerry reset, an iPhone reset, replacing the battery on a BlackBerry, replacing the SIM card on an iPhone or BlackBerry, as well as email reconciliation issues. One of the most common issues users have is in regards to their email. On the top left side of the main vESD screen is the “Email” tab. This tab can assist users in troubleshooting a full mailbox by assisting with moving mail or by creating a new PST. The vESD can also assist with the recovery of old email certificates and

other issues with opening encrypted emails. By clicking on the “Org Box” icon, the vESD will walk the user through the addition or deletion of an Org Box from Outlook. By clicking on the “More” tab on the bottom right of the vESD home screen, users are able to gain all of the information regarding their computer, including their computer name and standard desktop configuration version. For major issues or if an entire squadron or group is experiencing issues, customers will still need to contact their information assurance officer in order to create tickets. The information assurance officer will continue to be a vital link between the end user and the communications squadron. If a computer is missing the vESD application, speak to an information assurance officer and have them submit a ticket for the program to be installed on the machine.

RUfit to be in the pod? Story and photos by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Being fit to fight and maintaining a great physical foundation is an imperative pillar of the RUfit program, an Air Force and U.S. Air Forces in

uses to help someone gauge their physical state. It analyzes body fat percentage and is accurate within 1 percent. “It measures an individual’s weight, body fat percent, and change in body fat and muscle mass,” said 1st Lt. Lindsey Leitz, 86th Aerospace Medical Squadron nutrition program manager. “It’s a pretty cool indicator, because if you’re just weighing yourself at home on a scale, all that gives you is a number, and a lot can be going on internally that you don’t see every day.” The Bod Pod testing is available to all service members, retirees and Department of Defense civilians at least 18 years old. To get the test done in the civilian sector is around $200, but at Health Promotion, it’s free and takes about seven minutes to complete. “I’m glad Health Promotion

has this test available, especially for free, because now I can see where I am physically,” said Airman 1st Class Travis Adams, 721st Aerial Port Squadron ramp service specialist. “This test is a lot more informative than stepping on the scale, because it breaks down your weight composition.” After completing the Bod Pod, Adams said he hopes to

use the information to craft his workouts to better reach his goals, ensuring he can focus on the whole Airman concept. Participants can get measured every two months. Health Promotion tested around 1,000 participants in 2014. For more information regarding the Bod Pod test, call Health Promotion at 06371-47-4292 or 480-4292.

Medical appointments made easy The goal of the 86th Medical Group has always been to meet the health care needs of patients and their families by providing the best possible medical care while ensuring access to the services. In December, the medical group implemented a new, simplified appointment model with the intent of making appointments easier. The previous model consisted of four appointment types with

specific booking criteria that could present challenges to matching the type of care needed with the available appointment type at the right time. The new model uses only two appointment types, greatly simplifying the process for both patients and staff in the hopes it will improve customer service. The goals of this new model are to ensure patients’

primary care acute needs can be addressed within 24 hours while all other routine and chronic concerns are addressed in seven days (or when it is most convenient for the customer). In the old system, this could take up to 28 days in some circumstances. The simplified model allows appointment managers to quickly identify the appropriate mix of appointments and the ability to make on-the-spot adjust-

ments when applicable to meet patients’ needs. This has improved appointment availability to patients and their families. For health care needs, call 479-2273 or 06371-46-2273, or visit TRICARE online. MiCare Secure Messaging is an online application that allows patients (86th MDG enrolled patients) to securely communicate with their health care team via email. Only patients and their health

care team have access to these MiCare messages. To communicate directly with a provider and team, visit https://app.relayhealth. com/. As processes are being improved, feedback is welcomed. To provide feedback, contact Maj. Janelle Quinn, 86th MDG group practice manager, at 479-2687 or janelle.quinn@us.af.mil. (Courtesy of 86th Medical Group)

Telehealth brings long distance specialists to you Telehealth is paving the way for the future of military medicine in Europe Regional Medical Command. Telehealth bridges the geographical distances between patients and specialty care providers, increases patient access to care, and supports mission readiness. This innovative approach to military medicine allows specialty care providers at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to cross commands, countries and continents to provide high-quality, patient-centered care to beneficiaries residing in or deployed to Europe. Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, and public health and health administration. LRMC established its Telehealth Program Office in January 2014 as part the Defense Health Agency’s desired end-state to seamlessly integrate Telehealth into routine patient care by the year 2020. Since its inception, LRMC Telehealth has steadily proven its relevancy in today’s military health care system in Europe. Using Telehealth has allowed a variety of LRMC medical specialists to treat patients at outlying Army health clinics in Belgium, Germany and Italy, all the while decreasing the need for patient travel to LRMC and reducing time away from work. Video-teleconferencing technology and advanced medical devices, such as stethoscopes, allow LRMC providers to listen in real-time to patient heart and lung sounds. Other examples, such as otoscopes to perform real-time ear exams, and general exam cameras to provide dermatology quality skin exams, are helping Telehealth providers to successfully transition from the traditional tele-behavioral health era into a tele-comprehensive specialty care era. Full-time Telehealth nurses have been hired at Vilseck, Wiesbaden and Stuttgart Patch Army health clinics to support these high-quality, synchronous appointments between patients and their specialty care providers. Telehealth is also available at other Army health clinics in Europe but not currently supported with full-time nurses. Telehealth nurses are highly trained and qualified to conduct appointments and act as surrogates to

assist in the examination for providers and ensure there is no degradation in quality of care when using Telehealth. “I often find that my patients are initially curious about their Telehealth appointment, but by the end they are surprised and impressed with the quality of their examination and encounter with their provider,” said Robin Smith, Telehealth nurse at Vilseck Army Health Clinic. Smith is well-versed with Telehealth as both a practitioner and a beneficiary. “I have also experienced Telehealth as a patient and as the mother of two children that received care via Telehealth,” Smith said. “Receiving care from specialists at LRMC via Telehealth meant my children and I were able to stay in the U.S. health care system while living overseas, and it is also minimized the number of trips we needed to make back and forth to LRMC.” What once may have required a patient to travel

multiple times to LRMC may now be reduced to just one trip. With the use of Telehealth, patients can complete their pre-operative and post-operative appointments in the comfort of their own clinic, and only need to travel to LRMC for their scheduled procedure. Additionally, Telehealth supports a variety of patient care needs such as nutritional counseling, sleep study counseling, and educational classes for procedures, such as vasectomies. “Telehealth essentially takes the outlying Army health clinics with otherwise limited access to specialty care providers and turns them into their own regional medical centers,” said Erica Taylor, nurse director of the Telehealth program. If you receive a referral for a health care specialist, ask your doctor or nurse about Telehealth as an option or call the LRMC Telehealth Program Office at 590-4600 or 06371-9464-4600.

(children’s fasching party) and “Prunksitzung” (pomp session). These celebrations are announced on signs, posters or in newspaper advertisements. 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 costume contests and hand out prizes. Customarily, women do not need a male escort when going to a Fasching dance. In this case, it’s up to the females 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 at 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 up 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” means “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,” or Old Women’s Fasching, on Feb. 12, Rose Monday on Feb. 16, and Fat Tuesday on Feb. 17. Rose Monday is known for colorful parades with floats, musicians, dancers and walking groups in creative costumes proceeding through towns. Ramstein-Miesenbach is known for hosting the biggest parade in the Westpfalz area, and it takes place Feb. 17. Bruchkatze will sponsor its first funny session at 7:31 p.m. Saturday at the Haus des Bürgers; the second is scheduled for Jan. 31.

Army Pvt. Amir Farzaneh, 27, of San Antonio, plays a villager in the opening scene of “Fiddler on the Roof.� Farzaneh, a computer specialist from the 212th Combat Support Hospital at Miesau Army Depot, joined U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz’s community theater shortly after arriving in Germany.

Soldier finds home at garrison theater Story and photo by Rick Scavetta U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Not long ago, when Pvt. Amir Farzaneh first arrived at U.S. Army Garrison RheinlandPfalz, he wandered into the Java Cafe in the KMC Onstage foyer on Kleber Kaserne to catch a Wi-Fi signal. Farzaneh, 27, an Army computer specialist from San Antonio, had just been assigned to the 212th Combat Support Hospital at Miesau Army Depot — his first duty station. As Farzaneh got online and began fixing something on his phone, someone asked if he’d like to be in the garrison’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof.� KMC Onstage, the community theater program that’s part of the garrison’s directorate of Family & Morale, Welfare and Recreation, was holding rehearsals for the iconic musical about a Jewish family in Eastern Europe and needed men to fill out the cast of Russian soldiers. “I was sort of taken aback. I was only here for two days, and I didn’t know anything,� Farzaneh said. “Being here, I’ve made a lot of friends, pretty much the whole cast. They are so helpful and so kind.� That atmosphere helped cure Farzaneh’s homesickness, he said.

After working home foreclosures for several years in Texas, Farzaneh joined the Army to learn about computers and get money to finish college. In January 2014, he shipped off to basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, and then to computer training at Fort Gordon, Georgia. Then he got the news — an overseas tour in Germany. Other than briefly living in Iran as a child, Farzaneh hadn’t spent much time outside the states. He couldn’t point to Miesau on a map. “That was a big thing. It’s the first time I’ve been away from my family and friends for so long,� Farzaneh said. “I was kind of taken aback, because I’m going to be away for two years.� Nate Records, KMC Onstage artistic director, said he remembers when he was a Soldier and arrived overseas knowing nobody and understands what it means to miss friends and family. “The theater becomes a little bit of your family,� he said. “It’s a different kind of activity, not just something you pay to do. You’re doing something with other people, and you are working to the same common goal – the play as a performance.� KMC Onstage is a creative outlet that brings

Page 18 FIDDLER, from Page 17 together community members from a variety of backgrounds. Some are Soldiers. Others are family members, Air Force personnel or U.S. government civilians. Children, many of whom take part in KMC Onstage’s youth theater workshops, graduate to larger shows. For many, the stage offers an escape, Records said. “It sort of becomes a place for you to break away from everyday life and put on a new character,” Records said. “It’s an opportunity to do something without having to pay and something to get to know people in the community.” Things came together quickly for Farzaneh. A fellow cast member who lives near Miesau offered rides to evening rehearsals. He watched videos online — from Russian soldiers to characters in “Gone with the Wind,” trying to learn more about acting on stage. Each day at work, he’d look forward to performing. Choreographer Steven Stanfill said Farzaneh’s entrance to the theater breathes new life into the program. “He’s someone you want to be in a show,” Stanfill said. “Sometimes those are the best folks, those who just say, ‘Hey, yeah.’” Stanfill, a veteran performer, said he was glad to see Farzaneh working hard and having fun with others. “It’s nice to see new faces on our stage. He’s been here every single night and having a ball,” Stanfill said. “He’s done this with an open heart, and he loves it.” Rehearsals were several nights each week. With fellow cast members, Farzaneh learned lines, songs and dances. The show opened in December and ran through Jan. 18. When a leading character went stateside, Farzaneh stepped into his role. “It’s been 100 percent worth it. Otherwise, I would be bored in my room; I’d be stuck watching movies on my computer,” Farzaneh said. “This gives me a chance to expand.”

New Year’s resolution leads Airman to pro card by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


ew Year’s resolutions can temporarily change the lives of many, but for Senior Airman Jeremy Pellot, his 2013 aspirations changed him for far beyond that

year. Pellot, 86th Airlift Wing general law paralegal, not only advises and assists Airmen in the realm of the military legal system, but continues to be a 24/7 Airman with his drive to be physically fit. “I never thought about competing,” he said. “But why not? There are very few things that can stop me from achieving my goals as long as I believe in myself and keep going.” For about three months, Pellot trained with a coworker in the gym to get in shape, but it got more serious when he met his bodybuilding mentor during his prior assignment at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina. In 2013, only six months after setting a New Year’s resolution to get in shape and shedding more than 50 pounds, Pellot competed in his first National Physique Committee Gold’s Classic bodybuilding competition in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he placed second. With perseverance and discipline, Pellot set a goal that he never before had in mind for himself. From dieting to training tips, Pellot followed his trainer’s protocol word-for-word consistently until his first show. “After that conversation, I went home and told my wife that I needed to start my diet the next day,” Pellot said. “That was at midnight. She thought I was crazy and asked what was going on, and I told her I needed to start right now to reach my goal. After helping me cook and prepare my meals for a while, she took over my food preparation when she

saw that I didn’t have the time with my busy work and training schedule.” Pellot’s newly discovered passion motivated him to reach his personal best. With that, he not only took the time to improve himself but also to inspire others and help his wingmen live up to the standards of Air Force fitness. After his first contest he was more motivated to take first. After another year of training and improving his physique, he decided he wanted to step on stage again in the U.K. Nearly two years after deciding to change his lifestyle to a healthier one, Pellot competed in his second bodybuilding competition, which earned him professional status at the Miami Pro, U.K., on Nov. 23. “Senior Airman Pellot showed everyone that with dedication and discipline you can achieve goals,” said Tech. Sgt. Holly Bambarger, 86 AW general law paralegal. “During his contest prep a lot of people supported him, and in turn they were motivated by him to improve themselves. People have

come to rely on him for diet and exercise advice as well as honest feedback on their current conditioning plans and progress. I am one of those people, as I went to him for help with a meal plan for my own fitness goals.” Having the continued support from peers played a crucial role in success and determination, he said. “It was harder this time, but people around me kept me motivated with their support,” Pellot said. “Everyone in my office, at home and in the gym played a huge part. They had all predicted that I would take first place, so I felt like I couldn’t let people down who were expecting so much out of me.” Out of all of the people who supported him on his way to victory, Pellot’s wife was his biggest supporter. “I was ecstatic watching him on stage,” said Pellot’s wife, Natalia. “I know how rewarding it is for him to win, especially after all the hard work he put into his contest prep. He lives for bodybuilding, and I truly believe he deserved to win.” Even though Pellot had a strong gut-feeling he would live up to the expectations of himself and his peers, he knew that he could not miss a beat. “I had dreams of taking first place, but I didn’t want to jinx it,” he said. “So I kept it to myself and kept my head up. No matter how hard it got, I knew that every day was one day closer.” Pellot’s unwavering determination and focus led him to taking first place, which not only changed his life but the lives of other’s around him with his positive inspiration, Bambarger said. Pellot plans to continue bodybuilding in the new year and to one day achieve professional status in the International Federation of Bodybuilding, as well as continue to help change the lives of others as he pursues his passion.
