Welsh III returned to Ramstein Air Base Tuesday and Wednesday to speak with Airmen, listen to their stories of service, update them on pressing issues facing the Air Force, and thank them for their service. The chief of staff got a first-hand look at the base and the Airmen from the 86th Airlift Wing, 435th Air Ground Operations Wing, 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing and 693rd Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group who make the mission happen in Europe to support three geographic combatant commands and worldwide operations.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III speaks during an all call Tuesday on Ramstein. Welsh and his wife, Betty, visited to interact with Airmen and discuss the state of the Air Force as well as gain a better understanding of Team Ramstein’s responsibilities.

Best Army food in Europe; Baumholder’s DFAC burns competition by Elizabeth Behring U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Public Affairs The Hard Rock Diner dining facility on Baumholder’s Smith Barracks was named the best in Europe for the second year in a row, as well as runner-up at the Department of the Army level for fiscal year 2014.

The Phillip A. Connelly Award recognizes the Army dining facilities that provide the best quality food service and preparation. Nearly 200 DFACs competed in FY14. “This is our Super Bowl, the evaluation that marks food service excellence,” said Sgt. 1st Class Michael Graves, DFAC manager. “It demonstrates how we go above

and beyond to make sure our customers have the best service possible … by taking basic food service plans and enhancing them.” Some improvements include 10 salad dressing choices vice the Armyrequired four; freshly-cut vegetables; romaine, iceberg and spinach in the salad mixture; several choices of homemade croutons; and sliced lemon

and lime for beverages – and that’s just the daily mix. “We like to kick it up a notch,” Graves said, adding that other menu options have included stuffed mushroom appetizers, stewed tomatoes and homemade spinach lasagna. Though not every menu item is completely fresh, Graves and his team carve out time each week at the

DFAC Council to carefully select the menu, researching how they can continue to offer healthy and delicious, fresh meals while following a strict budget. “I know what’s expensive and what’s cost-effective. (For example), we’ll buy a whole chicken and cut it up instead of buying it pre-done. See DFAC, Page 5

Courage is born of encouragement COMMENTARY

by Master Sgt. Etienne Tousignant 86th Force Support Squadron career assistance adviser

T

here was a point in my life when I didn’t see a future, but I found comfort through different base agencies. Adapting to our military lifestyle is not just difficult for our significant others and children, but also for those of us who joined. As a career assistance adviser, I’ve had the distinct privilege of learning from thousands of people over the last 18 months, from men and women around the world, enlisted, officer and civilian alike. If there is one thing I have come to understand, it is that I am not alone. Each of us has faced the fears, pain, heartache and lack of

motivation to move forward from where we are, but there is one thing we all share: encouragement from each other. Allow me to share a few stories on how we make a significant difference, oftentimes without even realizing how effortlessly we have propelled someone in our lives onto a path where they will find courage, happiness and purpose. A number of years ago a young man joined the ranks of my flight. When he walked through the door his lack of confidence was evident by how he carried himself — poor posture and minimal eye contact. He faced challenges at unit physical training — challenges that were exacerbated by his nutritional choices — and he was unsure of himself in social settings. This manifested mentally through depres-

focused on people, pride and respect. The general opened his remarks with a heartfelt thank you to Team Ramstein Airmen. “I’m here really just for one reason and that’s to say thank you,” Welsh said. “Thanks for everything you do, how well you do it and the incredible way you represent our nation and Air Force.” Welsh expressed how every Airman, regardless of rank, plays a crucial role in accomplishing the Air Force mission. “Every Airman is critically important to what we do, and you deserve to be treated that way,” he said. “I don’t care how long you serve, or if you’re standing up here as the chief master sergeant of the Air Force or chief of staff of the Air Force, you deserve the same amount of respect. You can do anything you want; you just have to be willing to work for it.” The general went on to say how important it is to have pride in what Airmen do every day, because it is pride that breeds success. “I really believe that if you recruit the best people on Earth — which I think we do — and if you make them proud of who they are and what they do and who they stand beside, then you get performance you can’t get any other way,” Welsh said. “I think

sion, which impacted his motivation to grow professionally. However, nearly two years later his confidence shot up. He scored an “excellent” on his fitness test and has accumulated many friendships. In turn he has grown exponentially as a professional, all thanks to the men and women who helped him along the way. Not every Airman is faced with as many obstacles in their first few years. One Airman had a strong foundation and began his career cycling throughout Germany and Alaska, all year-round. He was so fiscally astute that he bought his first car with cash, but still continued to cycle and saved the car for adventures with friends. Professionally he did well, too, but admits his supervisors played a significant role in shaping his

that’s the key to success for our Air Force.” The all-call included a question and answer session with the general fielding questions from Airmen about what was on their minds, but also included the general asking for everyone’s help in focusing on some of his concerns as the senior military leader of an organization with 690,000 total force Airmen serving around the world. As an example, Welsh challenged everyone to improve communication within the ranks to ensure the right information is getting to those who need it. “We’re looking for ideas on how we can communicate better,” he said. “If you have ideas, I’m willing to listen to any suggestions.” Welsh said there are Airmen getting frustrated about things before having all the facts. “Rumors spread easily,” he said, using force management as a good example. “The leaders who should’ve been getting answers and information for their Airmen and passing along the facts weren’t doing it. “We will fail if that’s how we communicate,” Welsh continued. “I expect better from you. I expect better from me. We have to work this one together.” Wrapping up his remarks, the chief of staff pressed the point that every Airman should feel important and love what they do for the Air Force.

behavior on and off duty. Their encouragement shaped him into what we know today: retired 86th Airlift Wing Command Chief Master Sgt. James A. Morris. However, these successes are not only among the enlisted. Another Airman began his career in the dining facility. After three months on active duty, he found his priorities were misguided much to the frustration of leadership. This Airman was an incredible worker, but his off duty antics and failure to take several warnings seriously resulted in disciplinary action that landed him in correctional custody. During his stay, a senior noncommissioned officer had a heart-toheart with him, emphasizing how See encouragement, next page

the Air Force more a family than an organization. “We haven’t quite got to the point where everybody understands that diversity is a strength for our Air Force,” he said. “If everybody that wears our uniform or comes to work as a civilian Airman doesn’t feel fully empowered to contribute everything they can to the mission, we lose. “If they don’t feel they have a voice in your organizations, we lose. There are people in this audience thinking, ‘I don’t have a voice. No one cares what I have to say,’ and that’s wrong,” the general added. “That’s not the Air Force I want to be part of, because I know we are so much better than that.” The chief of staff concluded by reminding Airmen to never forget why they wear the uniform and serve. “I’ve known most of you for about an hour now, but I’d die for you. I’m just naive enough to believe you’d do the same for me. That is what’s cool about wearing this uniform — calling yourself an Airman, being in a profession of arms, serving your country and doing something that really matters to the nation,” the general said. “Don’t forget why we wear the uniform. It’s about knowing when it gets really ugly and the clouds all blow past that the guy or gal next to you is still going to be there. That’s what this is all about. It’s that pride thing — that’s why we serve. That’s why I’m so proud to stand beside you.”

encouragement, from Page 2 valued he was by his co-workers and leadership. As a result of this significant life-altering event, coupled with heavy doses of mentorship, he was able to reach his full potential by becoming an officer and a commander on Ramstein. There is one common thread in each story, and that is encouragement. Sometimes those of us who have already stepped up, need to step in and make our intentions known. A great way to reach someone is by inviting them to experience new hobbies and show them the local area. This type of encouragement could help build the confidence necessary to display the courage it takes to be an Airman on and off duty. I have a challenge for everyone in our community. Have the courage to learn more about the people on your path and encourage them to share in healthy activities from cycling, camping or any number of volunteer opportunities. I throw out this challenge, because this is the encouragement my supervisors, friends and family provided me. This is how I found the courage to be who I am today, and through them I found my path.

SVC offers sexual assault assistance to family members by Airman Larissa Greatwood 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

B

eginning in late June, the special victims’ counsel started offering services to children, dependents and family members who are victims of sexual assault cases. Implemented in January 2013, the special victims’ counsel is still fairly new and allows victims to have a lawyer. In the past, adults could only be represented, but now they cover a broader spectrum, enabling children and dependents to have this assistance. “Children who are victims of a sexual crime will now have a special victims’ counsel available to them,” said Capt. Kelly Adams, Air Force Legal Operations Agency special victims’ counsel. “The child is the client, and as long as it is running through the military justice system, the office of special investigations has jurisdiction and ultimately a military service branch could prosecute. They have an entitlement to a special victims’ counsel if they elect to have one.” Child and dependent sexual assault victims now have the option to have a special victims’ counsel representing them so long as the accused is a military member. “As investigations come up, the victim or their family will be notified by the office of special investigations and family advocacy of their entitlement to elect a special victims’ counsel,” Adams said. “We’ve found that more and more people are electing to have one, because they’re seeing the benefits of having their own lawyer represent their voice throughout the process.”

Every victim is different as well as their needs. The special victims’ counsel tailors their assistance to each individual case, and they are specially trained to handle cases involving children. “There is no cookie cutter answer to everything, but we’re here to help as much as we can,” Adams said. “Ultimately the child is the client, not the parent. It’s meeting the child’s legal needs, not anyone else’s. We work with the child as long as they are able to articulate what they want.” The sexual assault response coordinator and special victims’ counsel work together to ensure victims are getting the care they need and are getting help through recovery. “The sexual assault response coordinator and special victims’ counsel work closely together on cases — adult victim cases,” said Carmen Schott, 86th Airlift Wing sexual assault response coordinator. “We have a very strong partnership. There are many different resources, but we are a team. We come together to represent the voice of the victims and to improve safety in the military when it comes to sexual assault.” To ask questions about the special victims’ counsel program and request a special victims’ counsel, call 06371405-4782 or 478-4782. To contact the sexual assault response coordinator on the main line, call 480-7272, the sexual assault response coordinator hotline at 06371-47-7272 or the sexual assault prevention and response on-call at 0172-821-4871. To contact family advocacy for child and dependent cases, call 06371-46-2370 or 479-2370.

It’s about smart shopping, but I don’t know everything. It’s a team effort,” Graves said. Some small and less pricey changes include offering turkey, spinach and bell peppers for omelets at breakfast and using ground turkey in lieu of beef in various dishes. “We definitely go above, and typically exceed, the standards. We owe it to the customers, who are mostly barracks Soldiers, to make the dining facility their first option. They deserve the best, and they shouldn’t have to choose to go to the commissary or elsewhere for meals, because we serve too much salt or they’re watching what they eat,” Graves said. To that end, the team takes feedback from its customers — who often also include civilian employees, family members and local nationals with base access — very seriously. “I read the comment cards at least every other day, and most of them are positive, especially about the (chicken) wings and the Soldiers’ professionalism, but certain things just don’t fit our customer base or budget,” Graves said. One suggestion was to incorporate infused water (cool water mixed with fresh fruit, vegetables or herbs) into the regular line-up of soda, “bug juice” and water at the beverage counter. The first attempt of infused cucumber and mint water was a big hit for Sgt. Adam Jarema, who recently arrived from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The Bay Area, Michigan, native approached Graves to thank him in person for following his suggestion, and so quickly. “It’s great the DFAC Council took a little bit of time and read the comment cards. This is just one more thing this DFAC brings to make it that much better. They took a suggestion and went with it,” said Jarema, senior nodal systems operator/maintainer with the 504th Brigade Signal Company. And as far as the service goes, the Soldiers don’t do the same job day-to-day. For instance, one will showcase a cake he or she made from scratch, and then stand by to cut individual slices for hungry patrons. Other troops, many of whom are brand-new to the military, help serve from the pasta bar or from behind the main line. This gives them experience working in different areas of the DFAC. “I like to run this dining facility like it’s a restaurant,” Graves said. “This is just like a sport. You put people together in the right places and motivate them to do the right thing. “I’m not a good baker, but I know what right looks like and how you get there,” he added. “But if you have someone who is (a good baker) and you allow them to bake cakes, they stay in their comfort zone,” The Hard Rock Diner is open 365 days a year, including holidays.

Garrison hosts first-ever change of command Story and photo by Elizabeth Behring U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz Public Affairs Friends, family, service members, civilians and retirees converged on Daenner Kaserne’s NCO Field to honor outgoing commander Col. Bryan D. DeCoster and welcome Col. G. Shawn Wells during the first-ever U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz change of command ceremony June 25. DeCoster became the commander of U.S. Army Garrison Baden-Württemberg, headquartered on Patton Barracks in Heidelberg, July 7, 2011. He took command of USAG RheinlandPfalz when it activated with its headquarters in Kaiserslautern on Oct. 1, 2013. Wells, a native of Connecticut, most recently served as the former special assistant to the commanding general, Joint Force HeadquartersNational Capital Region, U.S. Army Military District of Washington. “Today is not just about any one person. It’s about honoring this great organization known as USAG Rheinland-Pfalz. I look forward to working with everyone in this great community as the team of USAG Rheinland-Pfalz continues to transform and provide a level of worldclass customer service,” Wells said during his speech. Wells also gave a special thank you to his wife Shelly and daughter Katie, as well as to his parents, who flew from Iceland for the occasion. Installation Management Command-Europe Region Director Kathleen Marin acknowledged DeCoster’s myriad accomplishments while serving in the unique position as the garrison commander of the largest U.S. Army presence outside the United States and as the senior officer responsible for the closure of another.

“…You led one of the most historic chapters in our European transformation to date, flawlessly transferring more than 4,000 personnel, 26 sites and securing more than $36 million in cost avoidance. This transfer included two major commands and a NATO three-star headquarters,” Marin added. DeCoster thanked Marin for the opportunity to command again, but added he was not solely responsible for the success of the closure and subsequent ongoing restructuring. “I will not pretend that the credit is mine to take. Aristotle once said, ‘Greatness does not consist in receiving honors, but in deserving them.’ I can tell you without hesitation that those deserving the honors were the members of my garrison staff, like the people standing on the parade field today,” DeCoster said. DeCoster, wife Cathy and two younger children will head to the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where DeCoster will be an instructor.

521st AMOW welcomes new commander Along the lines of developing Airmen, what would you recommend to your Airmen for them to be successful? I would say to any Airman to be persistent and dedicated. Follow the core values, but don’t give up on your goals and dreams. Do your best in what you’re doing right now, and good things will come to you.

by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs The 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing welcomed its new commander, Col. Nancy Bozzer, June 18. As the wing’s commander, Bozzer expedites maximum war-fighting and humanitarian effects for America through rapid and precise global air mobility in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Bozzer recently sat down with Ramstein public affairs to talk about her transition from a group commander to a wing commander, her command priorities and what helped shape her as an airman and leader.

What would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? My greatest accomplishment is my family. My husband Jim and son Dillon have always been supportive through all the demands of the military. I am also very proud of my Air Force family.

Knight’s Brigade breathes new life into BMTA by Sgt. Daniel L. Wyatt 16th Sustainment Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs On a blustery morning in the middle of an isolated German field full of trees and tall grass, Soldiers hoped to witness an event that hadn’t been seen in over eight years. A Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules aircraft cruised toward a drop zone before it began employing a low velocity aerial delivery system, commonly referred to as LVADS, carrying a payload. This type of operation is usually conducted in Grafenwöhr, Germany, but Soldiers from the 16th Sustainment Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, proved the potential for the Baumholder Military

A UH-60 “Black Hawk” helicopter hovers above a disabled Humvee as Soldiers from the 16th Sustainment Brigade secure the vehicle for transport to the Baumholder Military Training Area. The resupply and recovery exercise used the local German training area for strategic and operational training for the first time in more than eight years.

Training Area, or BMTA, for largescale operations June 18. “The drop zone here is a more realistic area and has real-world hazards when compared to the one in Grafenwöhr, which is flat,” said 1st Lt. Christopher D. Carlstedt, executive officer of 240th Maintenance Company, 16th Sustainment Brigade. “This training operation utilized a vacant German training area, which opens the door to future partnership training and the mutual exchange of ideas with our German counterparts.” The airdrop was developed during World War II out of necessity to find an easier way to resupply Soldiers faster. A low-velocity airdrop is used for small and larger items such as vehicles. It was designed to slow down the load as much as possible to ensure it impacts the ground with the least amount of force. “In a non-airborne unit, the task of conducting air-delivery missions is one of great significance,” said Chief Warrant Officer Brian Martin, senior airdrop technician for the 16th SB. “This training exercise showed that we’re capable of performing these types of missions and solidifies the necessity for our placement here. The BMTA has proven to be a viable training resource and assists the 16th SB missions as we work toward a more operational focus. “By utilizing the BMTA instead of the Bunker drop zone in Grafenwöhr, which is the DZ that we’ve historically always used, we reduce the costs involved in missions located out of Grafenwöhr and increase the amount of available resources here in Baumholder,” Martin continued. The mission was executed in four phases. The first phase required personnel from the 18th Combat Service Support Battalion to rig, de-rig and conduct drop zone recovery tasks

at the 5th Quartermaster Company rigging facility at Rhine Ordnance Barracks in Kaiserslautern. The second phase consisted of a joint aerial delivery operation combined expertise from Soldiers and Airmen from the 5th QM, the 37th Airlift Squadron and 86th Airlift Wing. The mission required one C-130J aircraft to resupply water and fuel to the 18th CSSB ground forces at the BMTA Kirsten DZ. The third phase of the exercise required 18th CSSB Soldiers to recover 10 A-22 cargo bags, each configured with four 55-gallon water drums, in less than 30 minutes after the airdrop. Immediately following the recovery, the Soldiers executed sling load operations at the DZ. The exercise concluded with the final phase of recovering all airdropped equipment and parachutes from the DZ. In peacekeeping operations or humanitarian aid situations, food and

medical supplies are often air-dropped using the LVADS technology. Such exercises increase the 16th SB’s operational readiness for times of crisis and combat. “This operational training exercise proves that we can increase our mission,” Martin said. “It’s one more lesson learned to promote the use of this available training area and employ more diverse and expansive exercises here in Baumholder.”

7th CSC Soldiers support Western Accord 14 by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs THIES, Senegal — Soldiers from the 7th Civil Support Command’s 1172nd Movement Control Team provided logistical and movement control support to the U.S. Army Africa-led Western Accord 14, a combined joint military partnership command post and field training peace operation exercise, June 16 to 30 in Thies and the capital city of Dakar, Senegal. The seven person team provided transportation and retro-grade/redeployment expertise for all participating personnel and equipment flowing in and out of the country before, during and after the exercise. They also coordinated any last minute operational and transportation requirements. The 1172nd MCT “is an additional most valuable player,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Kenneth Moore Jr., exercise director and deputy commanding general, U.S. Army Africa. The 1172nd MCT helped move approximately 120 units of equipment and more than 500 service members and civilians, including more than 350 U.S. Army Soldiers, Marines and participants from 16 other participating nations, including Burkina Faso, Ghana, the Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Senegal, who are also part of the Economic Community of West African States, or ECOWAS. “We received all of Western Accord 14’s military exercise personnel and equipment,” said Staff Sgt. Christopher Staley, transportation management supervisor, 1172nd MCT, 7th CSC. “We’re scheduling and coordinating the necessary assets to return the necessary equipment and personnel to their respective home stations.” The 1172nd MCT, which is a 7th CSC Army

Reserve unit based in Grafenwöhr, Germany, had two primary missions: to move personnel and cargo to and from the port city of Dakar to the exercise site’s life support area on a Senegalese military base in the town of Thies. “My role is to facilitate the movement of the unit’s personnel and equipment in and out of country,” said Spc. Robert Alcauter from the 1172nd MCT, 7th CSC. Alcauter is also a former field artillery Soldier who is retraining after WA 14 to become a movement specialist. “We have to import certain equipment and personnel so the exercise can continue and be successful.” As the exercise wound down, the wash rack, sterile yard/marshaling area and inspection stations were set-up on the airfield next to the LSA. Once redeployment operations started, a flurry of activity began. A crane moved large, metal shipping containers while Soldiers, Civilians and Marines cleaned and washed equipment as U.S. Customs officials floated in and out observing, offering comments and inspecting cargo. “I’ve worked with many movement control teams in the past, and this one, the 1172nd MCT and their (noncommissioned officer in charge), Staff Sgt. Staley, are one of the best I’ve worked with thus far in my 12 years of customs experience,” said Alfonso Whitaker, customs inspector, U.S. Forces Customs. “Where everyone is lost, they bring a little order.” During this time coordination, prioritization and placement of military shipment labels on equipment were provided by three 1172nd MCT Soldiers between the U.S. Customs inspectors, the Soldiers cleaning and prepping their vehicles, and the local contractors with large flat-bed tractor trailer trucks waiting to transport the various military items to the port.

“We also prepare their paperwork to alleviate any issues with customs to leave a foreign nation and enter the U.S.,” Alcauter said. Anything that has to do with chemical based equipment, such as oil, gasoline, cleaners, solvent, white out or ammunition blank rounds, must clear certain local port authority guidelines and criteria before the gear can leave and be shipped back to the U.S., Alcauter added. “For example, the Colorado National Guard has their (tactical) water purification unit and equipment here,” said Staff Sgt. David Johnson, movement supervisor, 1172nd MCT, 7th CSC. “We are shipping their containers back to the U.S. A tactical water purification system has a lot of items that require detailed procedures and documentation. For example compressed gases, lithium batteries and fuel all need proper documents and packing considerations to clear U.S. customs.” While all of the cargo inspections, coordination and loading was going on, the remaining four 1172nd MCT Soldiers were busy moving, tracking, synchronizing and unloading the exercise participants and their personal items as they began their journeys to the civilian or military side of Dakar’s Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport and then onward to their respective countries. “They (the 1172nd MCT) have really been the backbone in getting everything moved from Dakar, from our port of entry, from the airports, from our commercial flights, as well as our charter flights bringing in our Soldiers and moving them a very long distance under very difficult conditions out to the training location in Thies,” Moore said. “They have provided seamless movement of all of our assets and our Soldiers.”

Army Medicine in Europe reaching out to German partners by Ed Drohan Europe Regional Medical Command Public Affairs KOBLENZ, Germany — Partnership was the word of the day as members of Army Medicine in Europe met with their counterparts from the Bundeswehr Medical Service at the latter’s headquarters June 26. Representatives from Europe Regional Medical Command, U.S. Army Europe Office of the Command Surgeon, and the 21st Theater Support Command’s 30th Medical Brigade traveled to Rhein Kaserne in Koblenz to discuss partnership opportunities with their counterparts in the German military — or Bundeswehr — medical system. Bundeswehr participants represented the Medical Service Headquarters, the Regional Medical Care Command and the Bundeswehr Central Hospital in Koblenz.

While there have been some partnership opportunities in the past, the meeting was set up to discuss how the U.S. Army and German military medical systems could enhance and extend those opportunities in other areas. “I know there have been partnerships in the past — some at (Landstuhl Regional Medical Center) and field exercises,” said ERMC Chief of Staff Col. Scott Ehnes. “I’m glad that we can reach out and reengage. I think this is a great first step. There are many opportunities for us to collaborate.” Col. (Dr.) Rolf von Uslar, chief of the Bundeswehr Medical Service Headquarters (BwMSHQ) Concept Development, Research and International Cooperation Branch, said the Bundeswehr surgeon general has always been in favor of strong U.S.-German relationships. As part of his briefing on the makeup of

the German military medical service, he explained that they had hosted a medical exercise in 2013 that included medical assets from 11 countries, including the United States. “Operation Vigorous Warrior 2013 was an 11-nation multinational medical task force,” von Uslar said. The task force was designed to see if they could work together in field conditions. “The bottom line result — yes, we can,” von Uslar said. “It was very encouraging, and we intend to continue the exercise every two years, hosted by different countries.” He also said there was an existing formal partnership between the Bundeswehr Central Hospital Koblenz and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. “Now we hope to figure out how to get this cooperation even more lively than it has already been in the last few years,” von Uslar said.

Briefings on the makeup of Army Medicine in Europe included suggestions for partnering, such as staff and medical exchange programs, veterinary medicine engagements, medical logistics and maintenance operations, participation in the Army Expert Field Medical Badge competition, and training using Army medical simulation centers such as the Viper Pit at Baumholder. In the end, both sides decided it was best to gather more information on collaboration opportunities and come together again to discuss them in more detail. “I suggest we come back with ideas in two to three weeks,” von Uslar said. “We should know who the respective commanders are and who our respective counterparts are.” Ehnes agreed that it is a great first step. “Now it’s time for that important second step,” he said.

Capt. Spanky’s off-leash tour

Hey Ramstein! Anticipating the rain to come for the next few weekends, my human told me he planned a trip to a beach in France ahead of time. Knowing that a good traveling journalist never reports on the same location twice, I gave a howl in protest. My human laughed and clarified that we were headed to Bitche in France, which was not the same kind of beach with oceans and sand. Winding through the lush hills and forests south of Ramstein, my human explained what we were about to see. I could not help but wag my tail throughout the 57-minute drive. Overlooking the town of Bitche lies a massive fortress, The Citadelle de Bitche,

which has seen its fair share of battle. I learned that the fortress has been around since the 1600s, and after many rebuilding phases, was unconquerable between the 17th and 20th centuries. The fortress even did time during World War II as a part of France’s Maginot Line. Panting and tired from the grueling walk uphill, we arrived at the receptionist’s desk, where she gave my human headphones, which guided us through the citadel. At the top I had a great view of the surrounding countryside and I think I could even see the Rhine River! The tour took us down into the inner-workings of the citadel, full of cool, dark passages and rooms. Back up top, we

ate lunch at a cafe and sniffed around the gift shop for souvenirs. Feeling inspired by the tunnels I saw, I decided to dedicate time towards creating my own underground passages beneath the back yard when we got back to keep my bones safe!

FVAP helps service members exercise right to vote by Senior Airman Timothy Moore 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

he Ramstein Voting Assistance Office hosted Armed Forces Voter Week June 30 to Monday on Ramstein. The event was part of the Federal Voting Assistance Program, which is designed to ensure Department of Defense members, their eligible family and overseas citizens are aware of their right to vote and have the tools and resources to do so from anywhere in the world. Armed Forces Voter Week was tailored to remind Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines to register to vote and be a part of the election process.

However, DOD members can always get information from their unit or installation voting assistance officers or from www.FVAP.gov. Armed Forces Voter Week allowed members of the VAO to pass out voting information at the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 30 to July 3. “It is one of two special-emphasis weeks to encourage installation voting officers and unit voting officers to get out there and make a big push to get people to register to vote,” said Capt. Ross Smiedendorf, installation voting officer for the KMC. The goal of this week was to get people to register for their absentee ballots in order to get them before

October. The second special-emphasis week, which takes place Sept. 29 to Oct. 6, has the goal of turning ballots in on time. “Being overseas presents a different challenge to get an absentee ballot,” Smiedendorf said. “You can’t just walk to your local polling station at your local school or church and vote like a lot of people are accustomed to doing.” With thousands of local, state and federal positions up for election, the VAO plans to ensure that service members and their families have access to information and tools they need to vote. “This year is big, because there are midterm elections for a lot of

state senators and representatives,” Smiedendorf said. For more information, contact your unit voting assistance officer or the installation Voting Assistance Office by emailing kmcvote@us.af.mil. Smiedendorf said he highly recommends accessing www.FVAP.gov to obtain useful information before voting. “That’s where I and the unit representatives will get all of our information,” Smiedendorf said. “That’s where we are going to direct a lot of people, because it’s a really great website and is easy to use. It’ll tell you everything you need to know about voting in your state, including special elections and certain deadlines.”

by Joerg Moddelmog Kaiserslautern Legal Services Center Are you thinking about buying a used car downtown, or are you about to sell your car to a fellow service member? Then you might be interested to know that in both cases, the sale/ purchase is subject to German law. Therefore, it is good to know what host nation laws say on the subject of warranties and defects. Even though verbal contracts are valid and fully enforceable in Germany, only a written agreement enables you to adequately prove the terms of the agreement and clarify each other’s obligations under it. All terms should be reduced to writing and signed by the parties, because written contracts are presumed to be correct, complete and without binding oral (side) agreements. The buyer should have the car thoroughly checked out and tested before the sale is concluded. The car should be inspected by a trustworthy, independent third party (e.g., a garage). Passing inspection is hardly enough proof that the car will remain a reliable one since it does not say anything about the real condition of the car. It just shows the car is doing fine at that one moment. A clause like “inspection guaranteed” means only that the seller has the duty — and the right — to place the car into such a condition that it passes inspection. Normal wear and tear usually does not constitute a legally relevant defect, even if it impairs the functioning of a used car, unless

the buyer demanded a clear, concrete and binding representation from the seller to the contrary. Therefore, the buyer should ask the seller for specific assurances, express warranties or guarantees if a certain condition is important to him or her. It should be put down in writing. In Germany, the average total life span of a car is 10 years. After eight years, rust is a significant danger for almost every car in Germany and is, therefore, considered to be normal wear and tear. When buying a new car from a dealership, the warranty period is two years. It is reduced to one year if you buy a used car from a dealer. Only when buying from a private person can the warranty be excluded completely by terms like “as is,” “with all faults” or “Gebraucht wie besichtigt.” It is also important to verify the seller’s name on the bill of sale and to keep a copy of the power of attorney if the seller is selling on behalf of another person. Do not hesitate to ask to see the seller’s ID. Also, keep the seller’s local address and phone number on file in case you need to contact him later should a problem arise. If you encounter problems when selling/ buying a car, feel free to contact either the German attorney-adviser Matthias Voelker at the Ramstein Law Center at 489-2552 or 06371-47-2552, or German legal assistance attorneys Joerg C. Moddelmog and Holger Blug at the Kaiserslautern Legal Services Center on Kleber Kaserne at 483-8848 or 0631-411-8848. Recently moved to Germany? Use your FIND-IT GUIDE APP to find spiritual guidance!

409th CSB hosts 405th AFSB job shadow Story and photo by Rachel Clark 409th Contracting Support Brigade The 409th Contracting Support Brigade recently played host to a 405th Army Field Support Brigade job shadow program in Kaiserslautern. The 405th AFSB provided opportunities for its employees to work alongside or “shadow” employees in a different career field as part of the Army Sustainment Command’s Journey to Leadership program. As part of a 20-day developmental assignment, Miranda Lee, budget analyst with the 405th AFSB, worked alongside Stephanie VanDine, contracting officer at the 409th Theater Contracting Center, to learn more about the ins and outs of contracting.

Bullying Buster Summer Camp

“I had to find a unit within Army Materiel Command to job shadow with, and I’ve always been interested in contracting,” Lee said. “I reached out to Dana Harris, the deputy director of TCC, since they are in the local area.” Harris said the brigade was happy to show Lee how contracts are managed. “Anytime we are able to support a sister brigade, we will,” Harris said. “Pairing her with Ms. VanDine worked because she represents what a good contracting officer is.” During her time with the 409th, Lee helped with contract modifications and learned some of contracting’s peculiarities and technicalities. “Working this job has given me a much better understanding of the acquisition process. There’s a lot more to it than I could have imagined,” Lee said.

Trier: ‘Oldest city in Germany’ still entices travelers Story and photo by Staff Sgt. R.J. Biermann 31st Fighter Wing Public Affairs

P

orta Nigra, the Basilica of Our Lady Cathedral and imperial baths are just a few of the must-see attractions in Trier, Germany, and they’re only a short walk from one another. The city, often called the oldest city in Germany, sits on the banks of the Moselle River. The city was once controlled by the Roman Empire, which constructed most of the remaining historical sites seen today. The city is now home to more than 105,000 people, making it the fourth largest city in Germany’s Rheinland-Pfalz state. My family and I recently visited these beautiful sites, about an hour’s drive from Ramstein. Porta Nigra, Latin for “Black Gate,” was constructed around A.D. 200 along with a 6-kilometerlong city wall. The gate received its name after small organisms blackened the once-white sandstone used to construct it. Years after Trier was seized from the Romans, the gate was planned for deconstruction in order to reuse the gate’s massive bricks for other buildings. Of course, the gate still stands today thanks to the hermit Simeon, a former Greek monk, who lived within the gate’s towers during the 11th century. After his death and in the monk’s memory, Bishop Poppo had the gate converted into a church. For just a few euro you can explore the gate on your own. If you understand German, there’s even a guided tour where an actor, dressed in a Roman officer’s garb, will take you through the gate in a dramatic fashion. The windows throughout the gate allow you to capture great photos of almost all of Trier. Entering the city center through the gate doesn’t cost a thing. Great photos of the gate can still be taken from the ground, but it certainly won’t be as

enjoyable as climbing the circular staircases into the heights of the towers on both sides of the gate. Our next stop was the “Kaiserthermen,” or the imperial baths. It’s certainly more accurate to call these “enormous pools” than “baths.” Think of an NFL-size playing field, once filled with water, separated by cold, warm and hot swimming areas. These baths were also constructed during the Roman Empire for the purpose of relaxation and recreation. During our trip, we just walked the city block around the baths. For a small fee, visitors can tour the baths or experience a live play to re-enact a his-

torical event that took place at the baths. After leaving the baths and on our way back toward the gate, we finally stopped at the Basilica of Our Lady Cathedral. For 1,700 years, the church has stood in the heart of Trier. Its architectural flare was unmatched by any other building, wall or sculpture we saw in Trier. Each pillar, stained-glass window, pew, light fixture and mural is beautifully constructed. So if you’re roaming through Rheinland-Pfalz, Trier is a great place to explore, and the most expensive thing you’re likely to pay for is parking.

Soldiers learn fitness fundamentals with trainer course Story and photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander A. Burnett 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Soldiers from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command and other organizations around Germany received in depth physical readiness training through the Master Fitness Trainer course hosted May 29 to June 26 in the KMC. A team comprising one Army officer from the Army Training and Doctrine Command and three civilian fitness coaches from Anautics administered the course. The training typically consisted of hands-on physical training in the morning accompanied by classroom instruction in the afternoon. The course explained the entire Army Physical Readiness Training regimen down to the science of each movement, said 1st Lt. Caeson L. Daniell, MFT course team leader. “In the mornings we focus heavily on the movements and drills from PRT that people have been overlooking in the last few years, focusing on precision, progression and integration, which are the three principles of PRT,” Daniell said. “In the

afternoon they learn anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, exercise science and nutrition. It’s a pretty well rounded course.” Heavy emphasis was placed on executing each exercise within the PRT program with precise motion and timing. Throughout the course, the Soldiers learned when each exercise was neces-

sary and why. Even veterans of Army PRT were surprised to learn they had not been performing the exercises correctly. “I was a drill sergeant for two years and I thought I was doing PRT right the whole time, but I wasn’t,” said Staff Sgt. Juna C. Cyriaque, personnel NCO assigned to the 21st TSC’s Special Troops Battalion, while performing the “Side Bridge” exercise. “Doing it right is kicking my butt!” To both the trainers and trainees, the course and its material are considered extremely important. One of the trainers went on to explain why proper implementation of PRT is so crucial. “The Army has a great program in place with PRT, but it is not being utilized as is should. We want to make sure it is implemented correctly, because as a performance coach having worked with athletes at the collegiate level, we know that when you do performance training it’s all about the specificity of the training to the job we are going to do,” said Alex Z. Hoffman, MFT course instructor from Anautics. “The Army has one of the most important jobs in the world, because they provide for our safety.”

KMC 'Red Tails' win little league championship Win earned team spot in German national finals in July

O

n a picture-perfect Sunday, in a beautiful new facility at Clay Kaserne in Wiesbaden, the KMC Little League Baseball Majors division AllStars — the “Red Tails” — completed a two-day sweep of the Stuttgart Panthers and Wiesbaden Warriors All-Stars to capture the Little League Baseball District 1 Championship. The tournament started in thrilling fashion with a hardfought battle between Stuttgart and Wiesbaden June 20, with the Panthers finally prevailing in a breathtaking come-from-behind effort. The rest of the tournament, however, belonged to the Red Tails. Led by the superb starting pitching of ace right hander Ry Yates, KMC smothered Stuttgart’s offense. Strong defense in the outfield by Terry White, Damon Nelson and Ben Lenahan, and up the middle led by short stop Jackson Leech and second baseman Carter Woelkers — along with catcher Cody Schwope picking off the Panther’s first base runner from the game at first base — set the tone early, holding the Panthers to just 4 hits and 4 runs. The Red Tails’ bats were hot right from the start as they opened the scoring with a two-run triple from clean-up hitter Brandon Reynolds in the bottom of the first, jumping to an early three-run lead they never relinquished. A triple by center fielder Nelson and another by Reynolds capped an 11-run second inning. KMC relievers Josh Yosfan and Brett Parker combined for the final three outs, and the Red Tails won by a final of 14-3 in a four-inning mercy rule shortened game, earning a birth in the championship game. Stuttgart’s tournament came to an end in the second game June 21 as they fell to Wiesbaden in another back and forth battle that eventually ended with Wiesbaden handing Stuttgart their second — and eliminating — loss, 8-6. The morning of June 22 continued the Red Tails’ dominance as ace south-paw Andrew Smyth took the mound and put Wiesbaden on their heels from the start, striking out three of the first four batters he faced. KMC took another early 3-0 lead, but Wiesbaden fought back with a smattering of hits, scoring three runs over the next two innings. The Red Tails’ offense was just too much, though, behind the power of Reynolds’ third triple of the tournament and sparked by a two-run bomb over the centerfield fence by Yates in the third. Smyth shut down the Warriors in the top of the fourth, striking out the final two batters he faced, and the Red Tails’ bats exploded with Gabriel Falcon, Mason Pease and Ben Lenahan all coming off the bench for clutch hits in a six-run bottom of the fourth inning to earn another mercy rule shortened victory, 13-3. The Red Tails advanced in little league post season play to the German national finals against the District 2 champions from North Rhine Westphalia in a best of three series that was held July 5 to 7 on Ramstein.
